Eva Longoria and the Biggest Breakups And Hookups of the Year
Eva Longoria is all over the news today. First her and Tony Parker were splitsville then they weren't. This topsy turvy news story got me thinking about the biggest hookups and breakups of the year.
Here I will display for your reading pleasure, the best that the year offered in heartbreak. Just as the Parker's found themselves in and out of divorce court in record time today, I will also give you some of the better love stories in the sports world.
So without further adieu, here is your look at love.
Honorable Mention: Delonte West and LeBron's Mom
I just had to include the juiciest rumor in sports for 2010.
It seems we were all looking for reason as to LeBron James's awful play in the playoffs this year. We just couldn't fathom that he just up and choked. Then cam reports that Delonte West had some private moments with LeBron's mom, Gloria James.
The rumor has since been squashed but I still consider this a potential hookup.
25. Hookup: Shannon Brown and Monica
2010 has been a good year for the Los Angeles Lakers guard. He seems to have found an outside shot and he is set to marry R&B singer Monica.
The two were engaged in October.
24. Breakup: Eva Longoria and Tony Parker
I understand that the breakup actually did not occur. But it bears putting here because of the buzz the rumor created.
This would have been the biggest breakup of the decade.
23. Hookup: Mya and Larry Johnson
TMZ reported a couple of days ago that his couple were getting cozy. Looks like the former Kansas City running back is making the most of retirement.
22. Breakup: Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton
The 2008 Formula One champion and Pussycats singer called it quits earlier this year. How very sad I am for both of them. Well, more so for Hamilton.
21. Hookup: AJ Feeley and Heather Mitts
The Rams backup quarterback and women's soccer star tied the knot in February of this year. There is just something about soccer ladies. AJ Feeley is a lucky man.
All he has to do at work is hold a clipboard and then he gets to come home to Heather. Some guys have all the luck.
20. Breakup: Steve Nash and Alejandra Amarilla
In one of the weirdest twists of fate, Steve Nash recently welcomed twins into the world. Simultaneously, he announced he would be divorcing his wife.
For a guy that passes with perfection, this was horrible timing.
19. Hookup: Shaquille O'Neal and Hoopz
In August, we found out the Shaq was dating reality star Hoopz. There are rumors that the two are engaged.
As a backup center, Shaq now has time to spare in order to start another family.
18. Breakup: Abby Clancy and Peter Crouch
The English presenter and lingerie model recently left the star striker when it was revealed that he had been philandering.
Peter Crouch is as awkward looking as they come. He should not be cheating on a lovely lady such as this.
17. Hookup: Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko
It seems opposites do attract. Diminutive starlet Hayden Panettiere recently made news by getting cozy with an unlikely beau.
She is dating 6'6" boxer Wladimir Klitschko. That's an odd sight if I have ever seen one.
16. Breakup: Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez
At the beginning of 2010, Alex Rodriguez and Kate Hudson broke up. Now please dry your eyes. As you will see, Rodriguez does alright in the end.
15. Hookup: Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada
Cincinnati wide receiver Chad Ochocinco is engaged. The lucky lady is Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada. That might take his mind off getting under used in the Bengals offense.
14. Breakup: Rihanna and Matt Kemp
Rihanna and Matt Kemp split a month before the season ended. It was just enough time for Kemp to get his mind back on baseball. September was one of his best month's of the season.
13. Hookup: Michael Phelps and Brittny Gastineau
Michael Phelps is not all about collecting gold medals. It seems he is doing alright in the ladies department as well.
He was recently spotted with reality TV star Brittny Gastineau all over Los Angeles. Gastineau is no stranger to sports stars. Her father is New York Jets legend Marc Gastineau.
12. Hookup: Candice Crawford and Tony Romo
Tony Romo, it would seem, is never want for a fine lady standing in his corner. The former Miss Missouri is the latest beauty to call Romo her own.
I guess time on the injured reserve won't be that bad. Not when you have Crawford to lick your wounds.
11: Breakup: Caude Makelele and Noemi Lenoir
The former Chelsea star and now Paris Saint-Germain player cheated on Noemi Lenoir this year. The French actress and Claude were splitsville right after.
Yes, I will repeat, he cheated on her.
10. Hookup: Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari
When Jay Cutler isn't busy being sacked, he is on the prowl for the latest hottie. His current girlfriend is rumored to be the extremely sexy Kristin Cavallari. I'm not hating, not at all.
9. Breakup: Jamie Lynn Sigler and Mark Sanchez
Mark Sanchez and actress Jamie Lynn Sigler were only dating for a couple of months before the called it off.
I'm not worried for Sanchez. I am sure the starting quarterback for the Super Bowl contending New York Jets is doing just fine.
8. Hookup: Sasha Vujacic and Maria Sharapova
I am a Lakes fan and even I am upset about this one. I guess Sharapova is really into missed three pointers and ridiculous fouls being called.
7. Breakup: Landon Donovan and Bianca Kajlich
The couple split in July around the time Donovan was set to play in the World Cup. He made a point of throwing a shout out to her after his epic goal against Algeria.
6. Hookup: Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez
You see? I told you earlier that Alex Rodriguez would be alright after his break up from Kate Hudson. Cameron Diaz is still one of the hottest ladies in Hollywood. She is definitely better than Madonna.
5. Breakup: Kim Kardashian and Miles Austin
Just when we all thought Kim Kardashian was ready for a long term relationship, she quits Miles Austin. Now the Cowboys wide out has to suffer through the Cowboys worst season in recent memory and a break up.
Sometimes women can be so heartless.
4. Hookup: Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter
Derek Jeter finally broke down and committed. The world's most eligible bachelor is now engaged to the Friday Night Light's star Minka Kelly.
I can hear women from all over the world weeping.
3. Breakup: Tiki Barber and Ginny Cha
This would have been the scandal of the year if it were not for the number one spot being taken over by another couple. Tiki Barber left his wife of ten years to be with the younger Traci Lynn Johnson, pictured above.
To add salt to the wound, Ginny delivered Tiki's twins in May.
2. Hookup: Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson
Former NFL player Eric Johnson hit the jackpot. He recently popped the big question to singer Jessica Simpson ans she said yes.
She must have overlooked his lifetime stats.
1: Breakup: Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren
In case you have been in a cave for the past year, the sports world was rocked last December when news broke that Tiger Woods was unfaithful to his beautiful wife Elin Nordegren.
Despite therapy and other measures, the couple officially divorced this August.
