Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian and the 25 Most Controversial Sports Hotties
Jessica Simpson is now engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson, but this isn't the first time she has made headlines.
From reality shows to weight gain to dating rumors, we sure like to talk about Jessica Simpson, but is she really the most controversial sports hottie?
Kim Kardashian is known for her serial-WAG status, dating athletes like Reggie Bush, Cristiano Ronaldo and Miles Austin, but she, too, is pretty tame when it comes to controversy.
So who is the most controversial woman in the world of sports?
Read on to find out!
25. Elizabeth Hasselbeck: WAG
Elizabeth Hasselbeck is married to former NFL quarterback Tim Hasselbeck, and she is the type of person that people either love or hate.
There is no in-between with Elizabeth as she states her strong conservative views on the daytime television show The View.
24. Tara Reid: Former WAG
Tara Reid has been linked to Sergei Fedorov, and she is no stranger to controversy.
Reid became a serious fantasy for men everywhere after her breakout role in American Pie, but she soon became a celebrity gossip punchline.
From nipple-slips to botched plastic surgery, Tara Reid is known more for her misfortune than her acting career.
Come back to us, Tara.
We miss you!
23. Danica Patrick: IndyCar Driver
Danica Patrick is by far the most famous female race car driver, and it isn't for her talents on the track.
Patrick has received quite a bit of criticism for her racy photo spreads in men's magazines and her suggestive appearances in ads for GoDaddy.com.
Leave the girl alone. She's hot!
22. Amanda Beard: Swimmer
Amanda Beard is both an Olympic swimmer and a famous model, but that isn't what makes her so controversial.
Back in 2008, Beard posed for an anti-fur advertising campaign for animal rights group PETA, but the organization quickly ended its relationship with Beard after she discussed her love for leather in a fashion interview.
Leather comes from animals too, Amanda!
21. Venus Williams: Tennis Player
Venus Williams is the first of the Williams sisters to make our list, and she does so because of some outlandish fashion choices.
Recently, Venus has made headlines for more than just her talents on the court. During some highly publicized events (the French Open comes to mind), Williams wore tennis gear that looked more like lingerie than sports apparel.
She said that she wanted to wear outfits to pay tribute to the country in which the event took place (she wore a sparkly "fireworks" dress to the U.S. Open), and this lacy little number reminded her of France.
Someone needs to inform Venus Williams that Moulin Rouge is not a documentary on the entire country.
20. Daniela Hantuchova: Tennis Player
This Slovak tennis player makes our list after having to put up with anorexia rumors.
Based on this picture, I can just about guarantee that this woman does not have an eating disorder. It's amazing what chubby girls will come up with when they're bored.
It's called a treadmill.
Try it sometime.
19. Jessica Simpson: WAG
Jessica Simpson is definitely no stranger to controversy.
Where should I start?
How about her marriage and reality show with Nick Lachey?
Or maybe her on and off relationship with John Mayer?
What about the fact that she babysat—I mean dated—Tony Romo until he broke up with her on her birthday?
Jessica Simpson is also another one of our sports hotties to be criticized by PETA after wearing a t-shirt which read, "Real Girls Eat Meat."
Shut up, PETA!
It's a t-shirt. It's not like Jessica Simpson goes around killing puppies.
18. Khloe Kardashian: WAG
Khloe Kardashian is married to LA Lakers star Lamar Odom, and she makes our list for being...well, confusing.
Sometimes we can't really tell if she's hot.
We don't really know if she's fat or skinny.
And then there's that whole DUI incident.
17. Paris Hilton: WAG
Paris Hilton has been linked to soccer hottie Cristiano Ronoldo (who hasn't?), and she is known for her self-indulgent, immature antics.
From mean girl attacks on fellow socialites to a seriously creepy sex tape, Paris Hilton has become a household name whether we like it or not.
Recently, Hilton was arrested on drug charges, and she has even served some jail time.
That Paris Hilton is one classy lady.
Wait. Is that Larry Bird?
16. Tatum O'Neal: Former WAG
Where do we start with Tatum O'Neal?
John McEnroe's ex-wife dated Michael Jackson and got busted for crack cocaine.
Need I go on?
15. Kendra Wilkinson: WAG
Kendra Wilkinson is married to Vikings wide receiver Hank Baskett, and she is definitely the more famous of the two.
Wilkinson came to fame as one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends on the reality television show The Girls Next Door.
As if dating a corpse wasn't controversial enough, a sex tape staring Wilkinson was recently released.
14. Kim Kardashian: WAG
Kim Kardashian is a serial jock-dater as well as a reality television star.
But what is she most famous for?
Another sex tape, of course!
13. Serena Williams: Tennis Player
Serena Williams is a terrific tennis player, but she makes our list at No. 13 for her temper.
A now-infamous verbal attack on a line judge has carved Serena a spot in controversial sports history.
12. Becca Mann: Cheerleader
Sweet and innocent Becca Mann doesn't look like someone who would make an appearance on a list like this one, but appearances can be deceiving.
This little hottie exposed her pompoms (and quite a bit more) in some seriously naughty photos which were then leaked onto the Internet.
11. Carrie Prejean: WAG
Carrie Prejean is married to Kyle Boller, and she is another WAG who is much more famous than her athlete husband.
Prejean was relieved of her Miss California duties when photos surfaced in which the beauty queen posed partially nude.
10. Evelyn Lozada: WAG
Evelyn Lozada of Basketball Wives fame is now linked to Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco. The two came public with their relationship, which normally would have been just fine...
But Chad's VH1 reality show The Ultimate Catch, in which he tries to find the "love of his life," had not yet aired its final episode.
Lozada is yet another woman on this list to have nude photos all over the Internet.
9. Carmen Electra: Former WAG
Carmen Electra married Dennis Rodman.
8. Rihanna: WAG
Rihanna is now dating Matt Kemp, and these two seem to be perfectly happy.
But that's what we thought about Rihanna and Chris Brown.
Prior to the now-infamous domestic abuse incident with her ex, nude photos of the hip hop star were leaked onto the Internet.
7. Elizabeth Lambert: Soccer Player
Elizabeth Lambert is definitely controversial.
And I know you guys all like a good girl fight!
6. Ashley Harkleroad: Tennis Player
Ashley Harkleroad is the first and only WTA player to ever pose for Playboy, and she hasn't heard the end of it.
Come on, people!
It's just Playboy!
Playboy today is like Highlights when we were kids.
5. Ines Sainz: Reporter
Ines Sainz came into our lives earlier this football season when reports of some serious misbehavior on the part of the entire New York Jets football team came to light.
Sources say that Jets players sexually harassed Sainz to the point where she felt uncomfortable in the locker room.
Based on what she chooses to wear on a daily basis, I'm not sure that this woman ever really feels uncomfortable.
4. Tawny Kitaen: Former WAG
Tawny Kitaen has been linked to several athletes including O.J. Simpson and Chuck Finley.
As if dating O.J. Simpson wasn't reason enough to put Kitaen on this list, she was also arrested in 2002 for domestic abuse.
That's right folks. She was arrested for beating her husband!
3. Jenn Sterger: Reporter
Jenn Sterger became a public figure after sexual harassment allegations surfaced regarding this former New York Jets employee and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.
Favre allegedly sent Sterger inappropriate picture messages and voicemails while he was playing for the Jets, and Sterger decided to wait two years before reporting the messages.
2. Tila Tequila: Former WAG
What exactly is Tila Tequila famous for?
Having a bunch of MySpace friends?
From domestic abuse allegations involving her ex-boyfriend Shawne Merriman to some seriously weird viral videos, Tila Tequila is definitely someone to stay away from.
1. Marion Jones: Track and Field
Marion Jones won five Olympic medals at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, and she was widely regarded as one of the most talented athletes of her generation.
But that was short-lived.
Jones had to give up all of her medals after she was found to have used performance-enhancing drugs during the Games.
To make matters worse, she had lied to a grand jury about her steroid use, which landed Jones in jail for six months.
