Brittny Gastineau: Bleacher Report's Sports Hottie of the Week
Brittny Gastineau might not look like the most athletic babe around, but she truly does have sports in her blood.
The daughter of longtime Jets' defensive end Marc Gastineau, Brittny has been romantically linked to Gold Medalist Michael Phelps for the last month or so.
Even though the couple is said to be on the outs, rumor has it that a baby might be on the way.
Talk about moving a little too fast.
Instead of wasting time trying to get to the bottom of the rumor-mill, let's take a moment to learn more about the star of that reality show classic, Gastineau Girls.
Here's a lovely pictorial look a Brittny Gastineau, Bleacher Report's sports hottie of the week.
No. 15: The Beginning
Brittny was born in New York City in 1982 to proud parents Marc and Lisa Gastineau.
Her mother's place as a model and socialite provided foreshadowing of what was to come for young Brittny...
No. 14: More about Her Mommy
This slideshow is dedicated to Brittny, but we can't forget to talk about her mother.
Lisa Gastineau is certainly a fascinating woman.
After ending her marriage with the Jets' sack-master in 1986, Lisa didn't exactly disappear from sight.
Instead, she rebounded and was romantically linked to Sly Stallone and John Gotti.
No. 13: Her Father's Legend
Marc Gastineau set an NFL's single-season record with 22 sacks in 1984, one of many fine seasons he had with the Jets.
Injuries cut his time in the NFL short, and his fiery temper and bad habits led to a few brushes with the law.
His sack record stood until 2001, when Brett Favre flopped to the turf to give Michael Strahan the new single-season record.
Okay, back to Brittny...
No. 12: On the Runway
Less talk, more pictures.
It didn't take long for Brittny to make a name for herself as a model, leading to countless appearances on the red carpet.
She certainly has the goods to catch everyone's eye...
No. 11: Friends with Jeremy Shockey
During his adventurous seasons with the Giants, Jeremy Shockey was notorious for partying.
Not surprisingly, he crossed paths with a young Brittny Gastineau and invited her to a club.
The only problem with Shockey's master plan was Brittny's fake ID wasn't convincing enough to get her in the door.
Honestly, what bouncer would deny this angel entry?
No. 10: Brittny Is a Big Giants' Fan
Perhaps because of her love for Jeremy Shockey's flowing mullet, Brittny became an avid Giants fan while growing up.
That probably doesn't make her papa very proud...
No. 9: She Is Besties with Kim Kardashian
Oh look, spoiled celebrity hotties hanging out inside a posh club...
I wonder if Kim tagged Lala and Brittny on her Facebook page?
No. 8: Roll Tide!
Brittny followed in her mother's footsteps and took her talents to Tuscaloosa for college.
You can be assured she did her fair share of partying before, during and after football games...
No. 7: Not Shy about Showing Skin
Shortly after she signed her first modeling contract, Brittny got a spread in Stuff magazine.
Have you noticed the pattern in her fashion sense yet?
No. 6: Impressive Modeling Resume
Brittny was a successful model even before she turned 21.
She has worked for L'Oreal Paris and for the Kardashian clothing line, D-A-S-H.
Those gigs prepared her for life as a reality star...
No. 5: Reality Show Diva
Long before the Kardashians were true reality stars, Brittny and her mom became pioneers of the reality circuit with their show on the E! Network.
Admit it, you spent hours in front of the TV watching them tackle the world together...
No. 4: More Time in the Reality Spotlight
Brittny did so well on Gastineau Girls that the show actually became the highest-rated show to ever air on E!
Her work attracted the attention of noted sleeze-bag Joe Simpson.
Jessica and Ashlee's father enlisted young Brittny on his reality series Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, which featured spoiled celebrity children hanging out on a ranch somewhere in Wyoming or Colorado.
It really wasn't worth watching...
No. 3: A Movie Star
Who can forget Brittny's performance in Bruno, when she mocked Jamie Lynn Spears and made just about everybody laugh.
Of course, she played herself in the film...
No. 2: The Rumored Relationship with Michael Phelps
A few weeks ago, Brittny was spotted somewhere in L.A. dining with Michael Phelps.
The next day, they were seen walking around on an expensive looking shopping spree.
Was that really all it took to decide to have a baby?
Most "celebrity experts" believe they were an item, at least at one point...
No. 1: Is Brittny Gastineau Actually Pregnant?
The latest rumors have Brittny running around taking pregnancy tests and consulting doctors.
She was even spotted drinking soda at a club as opposed to alcohol.
Although she told People the relationship with Phelps is over, it remains to be seen if they actually have a little present on the way.
Don't count on Brittny joining the ranks of hot moms quite yet...
