And now Karen Sypher says her marriage to Cardinals equipment manager Tim was all just a sneaky plot by Pitino to keep an eye on her. But hey, don’t blame Rick - blame 9/11!

• The release party for the new Miami Dolphins cheerleaders bikini calendar was quite the spectacle.

Jay Mariotti denies that he’s going to be writing for the Chicago Tribune. Can’t wait to see Jay’s debut column in the Trib on September 1st!

Manny Ramirez gets a memorable reception from San Francisco Giants fans - the same kind of reception that Barry Bonds used to get everywhere else except in the Bay Area.

• Engaged Malibu fashion designer Ali Kay may have encouraged Reggie Miller’s unwanted advances by sending the ex-NBA star photos of herself in bed & in a bikini. At least Ali’s still pretty good at making clothes.

Object Of Miller’s Affection Shows Fashion Sense

While the whole Reggie Miller-Ali Kay-Alex Von Furstenberg flirting fiasco plays out, we would be remiss in not acknowledging Ms. Kay’s contributions to the world of high-priced clothing.

Yes, like her soon-to-be (maybe) mother-in-law Diane Von Furstenberg, Ali is a fashion designer - she started the Keep Me line along with fellow fashionista Anne des Barres. In fact, it was Diane who brought the two together to churn out dresses ‘n’ tops ‘n’ bottoms ‘n’ such.

And thanks to FABSUGAR, we can sample some of the fashionable results, as modeled by this lovely … er, model (pics after the jump):

Reggie Miller’s New Friend May Not Be So Innocent

When we first learned of Reggie Miller’s alleged harassment of (and philandering with) “married women,” we were a little perplexed - he doesn’t seem like the type to do that, if only because we can’t imagine someone that goofy-faced actually talking to women or having a healthy libido. No offense to the man, but he doesn’t exactly look like someone who’s going to steal your girl.

(Reggie, you’re scaring us. She, however, is not.)

And so when we hear that Ali Kay, the fiancee in question (yeah, not even married to begin with; whoops) was a willing participant in the whole (sexless) ordeal, well, we can’t be completely shocked. But give Reggie some credit: If the above pictures are any indication, he’s got good taste.

Reggie Miller Making Moves On Malibu Fiancee?

Reggie Miller has always been a polarizing figure in the NBA. His fans in Indiana adored his scrappy play, merciless sharpshooting, and gregarious off-the-court nature, but he also had many, many detractors who called him a cheapshot artist with a one-dimensional game.  In retirement, he’s been a pretty decent analyst on TNT, even when his mouth’s gotten him into a little trouble.

We’d heard all the arguments either way about his play, and read both good and bad reviews about his abilities as an analyst, but we hadn’t heard much about his off-camera life. But if some new allegations posted by HOLLYWOOD STREET KINGS’ turn out to be true, you can add womanizer and stalker to the list of terms used to describe the NBA Hall of Famer.
