How does one celebrate a new contract? If you’re New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton you do what I would do and head to the Playboy Super Bowl party.
Major League Baseball’s all-time hit leader is hoping for one more this time in the form of a TV show. TLC has begun production on a reality series starring Pete Rose, the polarizing 17-time All-Star who was banned from his beloved sport for gambling on games while he was a manager for the Cincinnati Reds.
With a working title of Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project, the show will follow the 71-year-old Rose and his thirtysomething model fiancée Kiana Kim, who has posed for Playboy in the past, through their daily lives as they try to blend their families.
A few family members are apprehensive about the relationship. And while Rose is based in Las Vegas, where he signs baseball memorabilia, or is on the road making public appearances, Kim and her two children live in Los Angeles.
The cameras will trail them through such events as Rose taking the family to visit the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to Kim getting a breast reduction.
TLC is planning to air five episodes of the show later this year.

Olympic gold medalist and model Amanda Beard confesses to self-mutilation, bulimia and depression in a harrowing new memoir that came out yesterday.
In her book, In the Water They Can’t See You Cry, the 30-year old Olympic swimmer describes how her parents’ divorce and the pressure from world swimming drove Beard to abuse herself.
Beard stole America’s hearts as a 14-year old when she competed in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics while still carrying a teddy bear named Harold. But behind the scenes she struggled with her parents’ divorce and the swimming pool became her “sanctuary.”
During her teens and 20′s the clinically depressed Beard became bulimic (an eating disorder characterized by binge eating, then purging), abused drugs and alcohol and began cutting herself with a razor. The self-mutilation continued — even as the the 7-time Olympic medalist became a sex symbol, posing naked for Playboy and PETA.
In the book, Beard writes about how she finally went too far with the razor. With blood all over her bathroom, she finally confesses her cutting craze to then-boyfriend Sacha Brown:
I grabbed the razor, a two-inch handle in a cheery shade of pink with an extremely thin and sharp blade at its tip. I surrendered to the object so tiny in my palm. With the razor in my right hand, I revealed the underside of my other arm, cradling it close to my body. The energy ran too fast to contemplate the moment before the half-inch silver blade hit my arm. It flashed briefly in the sunlight before slicing into the meaty part between the wrist and the elbow. One. Two. Three. I made the small lines as I had done so many times before. I didn’t have to press hard, only run the razor across my skin as lightly as a blade of grass moving across the leg of a child running through a field.
I knew immediately. Something was wrong. The calm that usually washed over me as soon as I made my light little cuts with their delicate beads of blood was replaced by a new fear. In the moment when thinking was not possible and the energy took over, I must have applied too much pressure, because one of the cuts gushed blood. This was not in control.
Within a second or two, blood spread across my arm, dripping down from my elbow to the white tile floor below. It was getting all over the place, on my tank top, my jeans, my feet. I yelled at my boyfriend, Sacha, all the time for the messes he made around the house we shared. I was never the cause before.
Beard went through therapy and medication. She’s now happily married to Brown and the couple have a 2-year old son. She hopes to make her 5th Olympic team in London this summer.
It seems the Tampa Bay Rays are having their own case of the Bachelor going on. Third baseman Evan Longoria recently confirmed he’s dating former Playboy model Jamie Edmonson and now comes word that backup shortstop Reid Brignac is not to be outdone by the teams star.
Brignac confirmed that he is dating Playboy model Lauren Anderson. Not only are the two a couple but they are also expecting their first child, real soon. The couple expect the baby to be here by March 18, 2012.
The next question that needs to be asked is if another Ray player will have a Playboy model by his side by then. Looking at you David Price.
Tampa Bay Rays slugger Evan Longoria has confirmed that he and Playboy model and former Miami Dolphins cheerleader Jaime Edmondson are dating. This photo of the two taken at Disney’s Animal Kingdom enjoying themselves circulated the internet and caused the two to come forward.
“Yes, we are dating,” Longoria said. “It’s been a secret for long enough; it’s not really been a secret, but nobody has asked about it. We are dating.”
The 2011 run of Tebowmania has come to a close after the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow were defeated badly 45-10 to the New England Patriots but not ones to miss out on the phenomenon Playboy Playmates like Amanda Cerny, Claire Sinclair, Jaime Edmondson, Jessica Hinton, Kassie Lyn, Leola Bell, Summer Altice, Irina Voronina, and Iryna Ivanova took a moment to Tebow.
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has been spotted in Bosie, Idaho, with Torrie Wilson, the Miss Galaxy champion who also was a star for World Wrestling Entertainment before retiring.
The Idaho Statesman reports Rodriguez was at Axiom Fitness in Boise on Monday with Wilson, who also has was a Playboy centerfold.
Mike Murad, an anchor for Channel 2 in Bosie, also spotted the Yankees star, and posted a photo of him on Twitter. Murad told the Statesman that A-Rod said “He was trying to keep a low profile.”
Rodriguez and Wilson were photographed earlier this month riding bicycles together in Miami, according to the New York Daily News. They also were seen in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, vacationing with actor George Clooney and gal pal Stacey Kiebler, another former woman wrestler.
Wilson was the 1998 Miss Galaxy fitness winner, and appeared on Playboy’s cover in 2004.
Former Playboy model Nives Celsius is no stranger to the soccer pitch as she once had sex with her husband, Croation footballer Dino Drpic, in the middle of the field at Maksimir Stadium in Zagreb and now has been signed on to play with Slaven Belupo FC, a top team in the Croatian league. Celsius reportedly will see at least some action during Slaven Belupo’s match against Zagreb FC today.
Celsius isn’t the only model whose risque antics have garnered headlines in the soccer world. Paraguayan model Larissa Riquelme who said that she would run naked through the streets if her home country won the World Cup. She made the same promise for the 2011 Copa America.
An LADOT parking official took photos of Los Angeles Lakers star Andrew Bynum parking his BMW in a handicapped parking area yesterday. NBC4 of Los Angeles tried to talk to the uninjured 23-year-old Bynum about parking in the handicapped area but he slammed his car door and drove off without comment.
Judgement doesn’t seem to be the strong suit of Bynum’s as he is the same player who once rehabbed a previous knee injury by partying at the Playboy Mansion, and the same guy who delayed a knee surgery so he could attend the World Cup.
Five members of the German National Women’s under-20 team posed erotically for the German edition of Playboy, in hopes of promoting the sport just weeks before the Women’s World Cup kicks off. The idea was to show the more beautiful side of women’s sports, as opposed to the “butch” stereotype that they feel shrouds the game. Annika Doppler, Ivana Rudelic, Julia Simic, Selina Wagner and Kristina Gessat all stripped down for the shoot.
“With these photos, we want to disprove the cliche that all female footballers are butch,” Gessat told The Local.
Back on May 18, we posted the video of Playboy would be ranking the all time Jordan’s when they trotted out Playmate Francesca Frigo as Mars Blackmon. Today Playboy and sneaker expert Matt Halfhill of nicekicks.com begin to rank the top 23 Air Jordan’s of all-time.
Unfortunately they don’t release all 23 as they want you to pay $4.95 but here’s a brief look at a few. Remember when David “The Goon” Stern banned the red and white shoe and Jordan was fined $5,000 each time he wore them in a game, look how that relationship turned out.
Playboy Playmate Francesca Frigo does a rendition of Mars Blackmon in preparation of counting down the top 23 Air Jordan’s of all time.
Malori Wampler, at one point in her life, had spent some time working for Playboy magazine. Later, she was hired by the Indianapolis Colts as a cheerleader. The Colts knew of her past employer yet last Novemeber, when a Colts fan sent the team photos of Wampler wearing a painted-on bikini, they immediately fired her, saying she had violated the rules of conduct for committing “any act that will or may create notoriety.”
The Indianapolis Star reports Wampler is suing the team for discrimination. Wampler, who is Indonesian, says the Colts “discriminated against her based on her gender and ethnicity because other cheerleaders have committed acts that created ‘notoriety’ but were allowed to keep their jobs.”
She is seeking to be reinstated as a cheerleader and to recoup all lost wages which is $100 per game.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Brad Penny has had his fare share of Hollywood starlets like Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku but none have ever put themselves out there the way his fiancee Karina Smirnoff has. Smirnoff, from Dancing With The Stars fame, unveiled her May cover of Playboy yesterday to the delight of her fans.
On posing in Playboy, Smirnoff said “I’m thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness.”
I still don’t get how Penny can put together a list that would make Derek Jeter applaud.
Even though he doesn’t know it, Tiger Woods is enjoying the view on a magazine stand somewhere. Enjoy Tiger a picture is worth a million words.
RadarOnline.com reports that Kendra Wilkinson, whose married to Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Hank Baskett, is in another sex tape released by her former high school boyfriend Justin Frye. If you remember Frye released one back in May 2010 and this video comes from the same era but this time it being a lesbian sex scene with high school friend Taryn Ryan. The video is shot once again by Frye himself.
“Kendra and Taryn started fooling around and then Kendra wanted the light turned off,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “But the camera that was recording them had night vision, so it looks like the Paris Hilton porn tape. Everything is completely clear.”
Wilkinson made a public effort to block the publication of the sex tape last year, but it was soon revealed, again by Radar, that she had actually set up a company in 2008 to sell multiple sex tapes to the highest bidder. The former Playmate and ‘Girls Next Door’ star made $680,000 for the video and half of the profits that was eventually released by Vivid Entertainment.
Back on October 10th 2010, we posted pictures of former Miami Dolphins cheerleader and runner-up in the CBS reality show The Amazing Race 14, Jaime Edmondson taking time out of her Playboy schedule to pose in a few of the NFL teams gear for an upcoming Victoria’s Secret line.
Now Playboy has gotten her to pose in teams that didn’t happen to make the playoffs and hopefully help satisfied their fans. Here is the video of Edmondson preparing for the Carolina Panthers’ shoot.
We knew it was only a matter of time that a league that sells itself on all about being about sex sold its players to a magazine all about sex. The Lingerie Football League pretty much already graces their indoor gridiron half naked and now they have gone all the way by posing on the pages of of Playboy Magazine. Hugh Hefner is giving the LFL even more exposure than it already has in the February issue of Playboy.
It features these 10 girls, one from each of the LFL squads: Ashley Helmstetter – Miami Caliente; Chelsie Jorgensen – Seattle Mist; Nadia Larysa – Chicago Bliss; Tisha Marie – Dallas Desire; Jeannette McCoy – Orlando Fantasy; Stephanie Noel – Los Angeles Temptation; Tanyka Renee – Philadelphia Passion; Stephanie Rollis – Baltimore Charm; Vanessa Sanchez – San Diego Seduction; Mikayla Wingle – Tampa Breeze
UFC fans all know Arianny Celeste as the most popular of the Octagon girls, but now the 24-year-old will extend her exposure beyond the cage this month, in the pages of Playboy. Celeste will get the cover and an additional eight pages inside.
Celeste hosts a web-based show about the sport at UFC.com and describes her job duties as, “Just don’t trip over your feet, and try to look hot and graceful,” and adds that, “I love my legs. They’re super-strong and lean. I’m proud of these stems.”
Speaking of the Playboy shoot she said it was relatively easy because, “I’m usually running around naked, so it came naturally.”
Victoria’s Secret joined forces with the NFL to sell officially licensed merchandise over the summer and former Miami Dolphins cheerleader and runner-up in the CBS reality show The Amazing Race 14, which I would like to know why it’s still not in HD, Jaime Edmondson took time out of her Playboy schedule to pose for The Smoking Jacket of few of the NFL teams and the Victoria’s Secret line.
