AJ McCarron spent night with model Margaret Wood, so gossip sites implied he cheated on Katherine Webb

Apparently A.J. McCarron can’t even have a woman stay over at his home to prevent her from driving drunk without gossip sites suggesting that he is cheating on girlfriend Katherine Webb.

Radar Online reported on Monday that model Margaret Wood hung out with the Alabama quarterback over the weekend. She was flying from LA to Memphis and had a stopover in Birmingham, not too far from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. After her connecting flight to Memphis was cancelled, she and her friends went drinking, and McCarron apparently went to meet them. The group went back to McCarron’s afterwards.

“We were hanging out at his house, and I had been drinking, so he didn’t want me to drive,” Wood told Radar Online. “I did not stay at a hotel. That’s all I can say. I’m trying to be careful about what I say because I feel really bad.”

Wood says she met McCarron last fall, before he even got involved with Webb.

“He asked for my number back in the fall when I was on the sidelines at the Ole Miss-Alabama game,” Wood told Radar Online. “I didn’t even know who he was. I had no idea he was even talking to Katherine. I thought he was cute.”

This photo, posted to Wood’s Twitter account on Nov. 19, 2012, seems to corroborate her story:

Even after getting together with Webb, McCarron apparently was still trying to make plans with Wood.

Katherine Webb forced to leave ABC’s ‘Splash’ because of a back injury

Katherine-WebbKatherine Webb had not exactly been lighting things up on ABC’s reality diving show “Splash” prior to Tuesday night, but the former Miss Alabama USA had been holding her own. However, her run on the show came to an end this week due to a back injury.

According to AL.com, Webb had performed inconsistently on the show but done well enough to stick around while four other competitors were either eliminated or decided to quit. A training montage of Webb that was played at the beginning of the show’s most recent episode showed her struggling mightily during a series of practice dives. Before making her competitive dive on Tuesday, Webb revealed that she is leaving the show.

“I went to the doctor and unfortunately he told me I’m out for the competition,” she said.

Webb took to Twitter late Tuesday night to thank her fans for their support after making the announcement. Because Webb has been forced to leave the competition due to injury, the show’s rules state that the competitor who was most recently eliminated will be brought back. That person is 400-pound comedian Louie Anderson, who has served as an inspiration to many because of his witty sense of humor and the weight he has lost during the show.

Anderson delighted the audience on Tuesday with a feet-first jump from a 10-meter platform. However, I’m sure there are plenty of people who will miss seeing Webb in her bikini. AJ McCarron did all he could to coach her on dealing with the media, but I’m sure he could tell you that injuries happen.

AJ McCarron says he has been coaching Katherine Webb with her media work

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronEver since Brent Musburger drooled over her on national television during the BCS National Championship game, Katherine Webb has been a celebrity. Her new-found fame has led to appearances in publications like Sports Illustrated and on reality TV shows like ABC’s “Splash.” As a result, she has had to learn how to deal with the media.

Luckily, Webb’s boyfriend AJ McCarron has already been there. Considering he plays for arguably the most popular football program in the nation, the Alabama quarterback knows a thing or two about having microphones in your face and cameras following you around.

“She’s been asking me for advice the whole time,” McCarron told ESPN.com’s Chris Low. “Even though she was Miss Alabama and all that, she had never been through any of the paparazzi deal, and it all came at her at once so fast.

“She’s still learning how to handle everything and will text me or call me for advice. I just have to tell her, ‘Listen, I’ve been going through this for three years almost.’ I do my best to help her every way I can.”

Something tells me it could be the other way around before long. As for Musburger, we already know the ESPN announcer doesn’t think he did anything wrong with what he said about Webb on the air. Webb even said herself that she appreciates what he has done for her career, and McCarron seems to share that opinion.

“He didn’t say anything out of line, and he told me they were going to show her,” McCarron said. “I told him where they would be sitting earlier that week at practice. He helped boost her career, which is awesome.”

For all that’s been said about the 73-year-old acting out of line by talking about how beautiful Webb is, he has made her into a very rich and successful young woman. If Musburger hadn’t said what he did about Webb, McCarron wouldn’t be giving her tips on how to handle fame. That’s just the way it goes in America.

Brent Musburger signs fan’s Katherine Webb poster ‘She’s a 10!’ (Picture)

Brent Musberger Katherine Webb poster

Brent Musburger is not shying away from the Katherine Webb situation. In fact, he is embracing it.

Musburger was calling the Kansas-Iowa State basketball game in Ames Monday and was approached by a fan who brought a Katherine Webb poster. The fan, Iowa State freshman Matt Mummelthei, showed Musburger the poster, and the announcer happily signed it with a personalized message.

“She’s a 10!” he wrote.

Mummelthei tells Larry Brown Sports that he got the idea to bring a Webb and Honey Badger poster to the game because Musburger “obsessed over” both of them during the last two BCS National Championship Games. He says he spotted Musburger before the game and approached him with the posters.

Mummelthei says he was nervous and worried about approaching Musburger with the poster, but the announcer was laughing and easygoing about it.

“He just loved it,” Mummelthei says of Musburger. “He gladly signed it.”

Musburger said last month that he didn’t think he did anything wrong when he gushed about the beauty queen’s good looks during the BCS National Championship Game. Webb stated that although she hadn’t spoken to Musburger, she appreciated his compliments about her looks. She also recently said she was thankful to him for launching her career, and she even retweeted a picture of the poster.

AJ McCarron calls out Darnell Dockett for flirting with Katherine Webb

Katherine-Webb-AJ-McCarronWhen Katherine Webb first gained national attention after she was shown on television during the BCS National Championship Game, Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett was one of the first people to hit on her. Dockett tweeted his phone number at Webb and then claimed it was supposed to be a direct message.

Last week, Dockett said he would be able to get Webb if he wanted her, but that she isn’t his type of girl. He said he is more into “hood chicks,” but that apparently hasn’t stopped him from flirting with the former Miss Alabama on Twitter. On Friday, Dockett gave Webb another shout-out.

It sounds like AJ McCarron has had enough of the 290-pounder hitting on his girlfriend. The Alabama quarterback called out Dockett with a pair of tweets on Friday night.

Darnell Dockett: I would have gotten Katherine Webb if I really wanted her, but I like ‘hood chicks’

When Katherine Webb gained national fame after ESPN’s Brent Musburger drooled over her during the BCS National Championship Game, Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett was one of the first people to hit on her. Dockett tweeted his phone number at Webb and claimed it was supposed to be a direct message. Now, he says it was all just a joke.

During an interview with Bickley and MJ on XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix on Wednesday, Dockett insisted he would have gotten Webb if he actually wanted her. The problem is she’s not his type. Wait until you hear what is.

“It’s not that serious,” Dockett explained, via Sports Radio Interviews. “I was just laughing at people responding because people were really thinking that I was gonna put my number on Twitter. … Anybody that knows Darnell Dockett — the real me, not just the football player, not just the guy you see on TV — anyone that knows me personally knows there is never a dull moment in my life. I’m always excited. I’m always thinking of the next gimmick, the next trick.

“And I would have got her if I really wanted her. But I don’t think she’s my type. I’m not into the thinner girls and the modelling thing like that. I like hood chicks. I like girls with a couple stab wounds, bullet holes, been knocked up a few times. … I like girls who, you know, have bad credit when they’re 21.”

This guy never runs out. He also added that he simply wanted to take Webb out to see a few strippers and show her the world outside of Alabama so she can “appreciate what she’s doing.” As we said before, Dockett loves to mess with people. He recently had a field day with all the Manti Te’o stuff, so it’s no surprise that he had to get himself involved when Webb became a nationally-recognized star.

Don’t worry, AJ McCarron — you’re safe for now. Dockett doesn’t want your girl.

Katherine Webb planning a move to New York?

katherine webbKatherine Webb reportedly is planning a move to New York in order to further her modeling career.

The New York Post says that while Webb was in town last week for a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition photoshoot, the model was overheard telling fans that she is planning on moving to New York.

Webb, an Alabama native and Auburn graduate, moved to Los Angeles to pursue a modeling career. She recently talked about moving back to Alabama to be with her boyfriend — Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron — but if this report is to be believed, that may not be happening. Hopefully it’s not an indication that their relationship is going badly.

Meanwhile, there has been much more buzz about America’s girlfriend than her two-time national championship-winning boyfriend over the past two weeks. I guess that’s America for you.
