JJ Watt is a man in demand. Even one of the hottest girls on Instagram wants a piece of him.
Model Lindsey Pelas, who has posed for Playboy, was spotted by TMZ at LAX recently. The cameraman noted the model’s Dodgers cap and asked whether she thought any of the players were cute. Pelas then used that as an opportunity to mention her crush on Watt, who she acknowledged plays a different sport.
No matter though — Pelas still told Watt to “slide into my DMs,” which is the modern-day, social media version of “holler at me.”
We know Watt is obsessed with his NFL training, but dude needs to find a couple of minutes to take Pelas up on her request. Maybe he can join the club of athletes dating Playboy models.
Johnny Manziel is not letting any of the haters drag him down. Following another week of criticism and talk about Manziel partying too much, he decided to unwind by spending his 4th of July weekend in Las Vegas. What better way to do that than with a Playboy model?
While in Vegas, Manziel hung out with Dallas Nicole, who is one of Playboy’s feature models for the World Cup. We would speculate that Dallas is Manziel’s girlfriend, but we know by now that Johnny Football loves kicking it with incredibly hot models without making things official. Remember when he went to the Texas Rangers game with Kyndal Kyaire?
Like Manziel, Miss Dallas has done the whole inflatable swan thing in Vegas.
Chipper Jones is retired, freshly divorced, and apparently dating a Playboy model.
The folks at Busted Coverage put it together that Larry Wayne is dating a woman named Taylor Higgins, whose stage name is Lexi Ray Taylor.
Lexi Ray posed nude for Playboy Cyber and was their Coed of the Week for March 4 2010. She was listed as a nursing student at the University of Kentucky. Per Busted Coverage’s research, she also has a profile on a webcam site, though she has not logged on to that page since August.
Higgins maintains two Twitter profiles. She has one in her performing name Lexi Ray Taylor, but she hasn’t updated that one since July 25 (the account was deleted shortly after this story was published). She also has a personal account where she has been freely tweeting about her dates with Chipper. She lists her location as Georgia for both accounts.
Chipper tweeted on Nov. 16 to say that his divorce from ex-wife Sharon Logonov was finalized.
Per Higgins’ Twitter account, the two have celebrated Halloween together and gone hunting.
Boston athletes seem to be doing quite well for themselves off the field. First it was Rob Gronkowski hanging out with Bibi Jones, then it was Wes Welker getting engaged to former Hooters girl Anna Burns, and now it’s Bruins young center Tyler Seguin seemingly getting close with Playboy’s Miss November 2011 Ciara Price.
Price is a 21-year-old from Portland, Maine, who seems to now live on the West Coast. She’s spent the past several weeks tweeting back and forth with the 20-year-old former No. 2 overall pick, and based on her Twitter feed, she spent Easter weekend in Boston.
Price tweeted to ask who was at the Bruins game last Saturday — Boston’s season finale — where Seguin scored two goals. Barstool Sports says (or is figuring) that Price attended the game and hung out with Seguin afterward. Seguin seemed to suggest he spent Easter Sunday without any women around, but I’m sure he had plenty of company during the day.
They could deny all they want that anything was going on, but if past examples of constant Twitter flirting between a guy and girl have taught us anything, it’s that there almost always is something going on.
Don’t worry you two, there is nothing to hide.
Soccer player Ezequiel Schelotto broke up with his girlfriend, reportedly because his parents thought the model gave their son a bad image. Schelotto is a 22-year-old Argentine winger who plays for Atalanta in Italy’s Serie A. He began seeing model Mariana Diarco in December, but recently broke off their relationship, she confirmed.
Various foreign reports say Schelotto ended the relationship because his family did not approve of Diarco. Some Italian reports even say the family thought Diarco was “too sexy.”
Maybe I’m speaking out of turn, but I would think having a sexy girlfriend is exactly what parents would want for their son. Or maybe that’s just what the son would want, whereas the parents would want a nice girl.
In any case, Diarco has modeled in Maxim and even posed nude in Playboy. I guess it’s understandable why parents would be uncomfortable with their son dating someone whose nude pics are posted across the internet, but hey, the kid’s 22, let him have some fun.

The Tampa Bay Rays are cleaning up this offseason. We don’t mean that the team’s roster has improved significantly. Tampa rarely makes any big splashes during the offseason but always remains in contention, so that isn’t a concern. As far as the players’ social lives are concerned, however, the Rays are dominating the league. Reid Brignac’s girlfriend, former Playboy Playmate Lauren Anderson, is reportedly pregnant.
As The Big Lead pointed out, the couple has a baby registry online here if you’re interested in surprising them with a gift. The discovery that Brignac and Anderson are pregnant comes just days after third baseman Evan Longoria confirmed that he is dating former Playmate Jaime Edmondson. Unfortunately for Derek Jeter, A-Rod has lousy taste in women. That leaves Brignac and Longoria as the kings of the left side of the infield in the dating world.
The photo you see above — which was shared by Jaime Edmondson herself — and a series of tweets have recently sparked speculation that a certain Rays third baseman and a certain Playboy model may be dating. Evan Longoria has ended any speculation by confirming that he is one lucky dude.
“Yes, we are dating,” Longoria said according to the Tampa Bay Times. “It’s been a secret for long enough; it’s not really been a secret, but nobody has asked about it. We are dating.”
“I don’t even think of her like that,” he said when someone reminded him that he’s now dating Playboy’s Miss January 2010 and a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader. “She’s actually more informed on sports. She did a fantasy football blog the whole year, and she does a show on Sirius satellite radio. So it’s pretty cool to be able to talk to somebody on that level outside of the whole modeling thing.”
Jaime does seem to know sports. Or, I should say, she is constantly connected with sports by doing things like recreating the Super Bowl’s best moments in a fun-to-look-at photo shoot and frequently being featured in Jimmy Traina’s Hot Clicks.
From the sound of it, Longoria found himself a nice catch. We had a hunch he was looking for love when he lobbed a couple of compliments toward Alex Morgan on Twitter back in November, so we’re happy for him. And a little jealous.
Alex Rodriguez was spotted working out at a gym in Boise, Idaho earlier this week, and now we may know why: It looks like he’s involved with former WWE diva Torrie Wilson.
A former sports reporter told the Idaho Statesman that A-Rod was at the gym working out with the former Playboy model. Wilson is a Boise native and won the Miss Galaxy fitness competition. We all know A-Rod likes the bulky, muscular women, so Wilson certainly fits his profile.
Sportress of Blogitude informs us that A-Rod was photographed in Cabo this week with a blonde, who we believe is Wilson. The Daily Mail says he’s on vacation with George Clooney, and his girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, who is also a former WWE diva.
A-Rod broke up with Cameron Diaz in June and has been on the market since.
See how Torrie compares to all the other muscular women Alex has dated.
Hunter Pence is just absolutely killing life right now. One of the better young outfielders in the game, Pence spent the first four seasons of his career with the Astros — a team that quickly became one of the worst in all of baseball. After a season in which he belted 25 homers and knocked in 91 runs, it was clear Pence was outgrowing his potential in Houston. Then, Hunter got the phone call every MLB player dreams of when he found out he was being traded from one of the worst franchises in the MLB to one of the best.
Now, Pence plays for the Phillies. His starting pitching staff is one of the best in the game and the lineup he has been inserted into is stacked. In 54 games after being traded to Philadelphia, he hit .324. As Crossing Broad has informed us, he also started dating a Playboy Playmate named Shannon Jones somewhere along the line, who recently tweeted that she is on her way to Cabo with her man. Simply put: it’s good to be Hunter Pence.
I’ve done my due diligence in adding her to our tremendous list of Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends, while also rounding up the somewhat SFW photos of the Playboy model. If you want to venture around the internet for the NSFW pictures, well, she is a Playmate.
