Right now life isn't exactly fantastic for Antoine Walker, the NBA's all-time leader in both shimmies and four-pointers attempted. After blowing through a phenomenal amount of dough (he earned over $110 million in his career) and struggling to return to the league, the last thing he wants is to be exposed to more financial liabilities. Unfortunately for 'Toine, that's exactly what happened when a Chicago resident by the name of Kevin Jenkinsfiled a suit claiming that Antoine Walker not only slept with his fiancée but convinced her to kick him out of their residence while Walker waited outside in his Range Rover.
The lady in question is one Johanna Edelberg, whose name last showed up in the papers in 2001 when her roommate committed suicide after the two smoked marijuana in their Manhattan apartment. Both women were then working as plus-size models for NYC's famed Wilhelmina Models agency, and a quick Google search turns up a number of photoshoots featuring the curvy Ms. Edelberg in such a capacity.Read More
We discovered not too long ago that Eva Longoria and Tony Parker were set to split after TP9 allegedly put the naughty on the wife of former Spur Brent Barry. Nasty stuff all-round, and with Eva apparently unwilling to overlook Tony's infidelities it was no surprise that the pair bought a one-way ticket to Splitsville.
Traditionally, the interested parties sever all contact and leave it to the suits to divide the marbles and finalize the divorce. This time, however, it seems as if the estranged pair are looking to do things a little more personally, meeting face-to-face in an L.A.-area hotel before the Spurs-Clippers game to talk things over. So what does this mean? It could merely be that Eva and Tony are hoping to separate amicably, with a meeting on neutral ground a commitment to keeping this divorce from becoming unnecessarily messy. It could also be one last effort by TP9 to win back his lady before they reach the point of no return.Read More
For many months the word on the web was that Dwight Howard had finally found a new lady following the Royce Reed fiasco.

It seems like only yesterday that we first reported that Maria Sharapova and Sasha Vujacic were dating, and initially few were ready to believe that The Machine, he whose rump is festooned with bench splinters, could have snagged one of the world's most recognizable athletes. As time went on, however, it became increasingly clear that the two were indeed an item, especially when photos started appearing of the pair all coupled up.Read More

In this clip from Basketball Wives, Evelyn Lozada makes waves by making a fashionably late entrance to Jennifer Williams' charity event with a new man on her arm.

Bad went to worse for Siohvaughn Wade when Dwyane started seeing Gabrielle Union, and today things just got even worserer.

Guess what: She never materialized. When the deadline came and went and she remained a no-show, the judge followed through on her threat and ordered the Cook County Sheriff's Department to take Siohvaughn Wade into custody.Read More
I'm a simple creature, and as such it doesn't take a whole lot to keep me content. With the weather warming up, then, and the NBA playoffs in full swing, I was already a fairly happy chappy. This morning, though, things just got a whole lot better.
