Kendra and Hank Tie the Knot at Playboy Mansion

“You know gossip Web sites… bunch of bitchy little girls.” Or so we imagine Sam Axe saying to sites like MEDIA TAKE OUT when their little pixilated claws came out after the charming young men’s magazine model Kendra Wilkinson enjoined with known athlete Hank Baskett in a charming li’l marriage ceremony yesterday at the Playboy Mansion.

(Finally, our little girl gets to wear her own jersey)

It’s a lady’s day to shine (along with her fellow bridesmates like Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt), so fooey on MEDIA TAKE OUT for calling the ceremony “tacky”. Come on; we’re sure the family even painted the shotgun white for the occasion.  Some Web sites have to be the bride at every wedding and the body at every funeral, y’know?

Video: Bynum Hula Hooping At Playboy Mansion

Los Angeles media was abuzz today over a photo posted by Arash Markazi at SI.com that featured an injured Andrew Bynum with Playboy Playmate Nicole Narain on his shoulders at a Playboy Mansion party last Saturday.

(You didn’t know hula hooping was an integral part of knee injury rehab?)

There’s been plenty of chatter as to why Bynum was seen in that situation, considering that he recently suffered a serious knee injury (torn MCL).

Now Alana G. from Yardbarker.com has video of Bynum from last Friday at a Playboy golf function. This time he’s attempting to impress a Playmate in a hula hoop contest. The woman might be Narain, but I’m not totally sure on that.

Alana also is quick to point out that contrary to an ESPN report, Bynum did not golf at the event.

Bynum’s Rehab Includes Lifting Playboy Bunnies

Much like this time last year, a lot of the Los Angeles Lakers’ chances to win an NBA title this season rest on the health of Andrew Bynum’s knee. Bynum has been out since February with a torn MCL that he’s been rehabbing pretty hard in hopes of getting back on a court in time to help the Lakers make a playoff run. And his coach Phil Jackson has said recently that he thinks Bynum is only a few weeks away from returning.

Well, it may be even sooner than that if a recent trip to the Playboy Mansion is any indicator. That’s where Bynum figured out a new way to help test the strength of his knee by picking up Playmate Nicole Narain and carrying her around the mansion on his shoulders. (With more pics of knockout Nicole after the jump.)

Athlete Bloggers Just Like Us, Except Playboy Part

I guess in an attempt to seem more legitimate to advertisers, Playboy.com now has pro athletes blogging. I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking to read about party tales from NFL players after *occupying* myself with porn for time in memorium.

Playboy Hotties

(NSFW? Party pic from NBC-TV’s Chicago affiliate website)

One such blogger is 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis. In his latest entry, Willis describes Playboy’s New Year’s Eve party at Hugh Hefner’s mansion.  After telling us something we already knew, that Bill Maher and Jon Lovitz were at the party bottom-feeding jacuzzi algae, Willis got down to some details about his party hookup.

I Have New Appreciation For Maxim’s Photography

MAXIM, as noted by GIRLS THAT CHEER, recently did a photo shoot of some select NFL cheerleaders. Lilly Robbins, who was a tender 18 when Miami Dolphins management first saw her big, natural boobs hired her for their cheer squad, was one of the girls included in the mag’s production. And, at least from this photo, you can see why:

For a second there, I thought I’d found the hottest NFL cheerleader EVAR. That is, until I saw the unretouched version of Ms. Robbins (after the jump). Read more…

An Evening With a Nudie at The Playboy Mansion

I spent most of last evening at the Playboy Mansion watching boxing, observing a nude girl tiptoe through mostly spider vein-nosed, bowling-shirted attendees, and sadly, missing Bill Maher.

(Inspiration for followup to Shaq’s Ma$$terful Kobe Rap?)

I was flummoxed by the absence of Playboy Mansion regulars Maher, Scott Baio, Jon Lovitz, Bob Saget and of course, America’s favorite mid-40s teenie stalker Pauly Shore. In consideration of that curious chasm, it was clear early on that this wasn’t the typical study in backyard debauchery for which Hef’s parties are notorious.

(What the hell Chuck, No chain wallet?)

But with my current condition, it was still better than spending the night wrangling with the ice machine at the Culver City Hilton Garden Inn.

So, what then was the highlight of the night? Well, that would be the one nude girl on the grounds. And for that I thank my gracious party hosts, Yardbarker.com.

Tonight I’m Picking Bill Maher Over My Bulldogs

I’m still holed up in a hotel in Los Angeles as I look for a place to live on the westside, preferably with rent under $12,500 per week in a post Cold War-wired building.

(Both’ll feature designated hitters in tasteful red ensembles)

Since I’ve been back, I’ve felt increasingly bad about my ever-enlarging carbon footprint. Not because I’ve been driving a lot. Rather, I haven’t touched the USA TODAY that’s been slid under my hotel room door every day for the past two weeks. Oh, the humanity!

It’s not because the paper doesn’t do a fine job covering all manner of world matters. It’s more that I really appreciate the fact that people (OK, my mom) think I look young for my age, and I don’t want to pick up something that might suddenly cause an onslaught of liver spots.

Tonight my alma mater, the Univ. of Georgia, plays for the NCAA college baseball championship in Omaha. I’ve also been invited (via Pete @ Yardbarker.com) to a boxing card this evening at the Playboy Mansion. The event includes dinner, wine *tasting*, the fights bathroom break and an after party (and most importantly, a chance to meet Shawne Merriman!).

So what to do? Read more…
