Who is the First Lady of Hockey? If you said Penguins center Cindy Crosby, I like the way you think, but no. It’s probably superstar puck bunny and supermodel Carol Alt. Yesterday Alt lost a $1 million lawsuit against her ex-husband, former NHL’er Ron Greschner.
Alt, who will appear in the December issue of Playboy, was seeking the money from her husband of 18 years for shares in a business investment, which she said belonged to her because she let him handle her finances. A Manhattan District Court ruled that she was entitled to $168,000, but that the statute of limitations had run out.
Now I ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger, but she ain’t messin’ wit no (QMJHL team Drummondville) Voltiguers.
Alt, still looking frisky at the age of 47, tried to spin the judge’s ruling as a victory:
[She] smiled through her tears Wednesday as she said a judge’s decision that her ex-husband owed her no money finally frees her from the most important relationship of her supermodel years.
“I feel vindicated and free. These are tears of joy,” said Alt.
After divorcing Greschner in 2001, she moved on to Alexei Yashin. While Yashin was six months old when her first husband was drafted into the NHL, it may not be an upgrade for Alt. After all, Greschner was a lifelong Ranger, while Yashin made his name with the Islanders.
(Ron always admired Carol’s huge tracts of land.)
