Report: Glen Rice x Sarah Palin = Had a One-Night Stand

And now, the oddest story you’re likely to read today:

In “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” Joe McGinniss’ soon-to-be-published book for former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate, one tidbit, passed along by the National Enquirer, concerns former NBA player Glen Rice.

Palin, according to the book, had a fling thing with Rice in 1987, while he was in college and she was a sports reporter fresh out of college and working at KTUU in Alaska. Rice was a junior at the University of Michigan at the time and their one-night stand occurred while he and the Wolverines were playing in the Great Alaska Shootout. Less than a year afterward, Palin, hockey mom and former basketball player married her husband Todd.

According to the Enquirer, Rice confirmed the relationship to McGinniss. And, because keeping score is important, Michigan lost, 79-64, to Arizona in the semifinals. The Wolverines finished third, beating Alabama-Birmingham. Rice was named to the all-tournament team.

There was no immedite reaction from Palin or her camp.

WHITNEY HOUSTON x TYRESE GIBSON = DATING?? Daughter Bobbi Kristina vs Tyrese #TwitterBeef

  

Whitney Houston, 47, has been known to scoop men half her age. Ray J, 30, comes to mind when thinking of her romantic love interests, but now there’s a new boy toy the troubled superstar is being linked to: Tyrese Gibson.

According to the National Enquire, the ‘I Will Always Love You’ performer is dating the 32-year-old crooner-turned-actor. Houston reportedly met the ‘Transformers’ star in February of this year while at a party together. Since their introduction, the two have been “quietly dating,” reports say.

A source reveals that Houston made the first move on Gibson, approaching him at the event then calling him afterwards to set up a date.

While the tabloid magazine is known to exaggerate facts, and celebrities blast its reports as false many times, there could be truth behind the claims that Houston and Gibson are an item, despite the latter already denying the rumors.

“Negative blogs, press, blurbs, people spreading negative things. Rumors. I rest Well at night cause none of these things matter anymore…”

Tyrese wrote in poste on his Twitter account. He then went on to digitally laugh over the news he’s “dating” the pop chanteuse.

“Man if ya’ll don’t Gtfoh (get the f**k out of here) w (with) this dumb s**t.. Hahahahahaahahaa… #Never… I repeat.. Never..!!”

Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, didn’t take the film star’s reaction to the news lightly.

“Lmao (laughing my a** off) at Tyrese.. Damn it’s like tht (that)?! Hah, well to clear it up, Trust Me, MY MOM WOULD Never. Hah #shesroyalty,”

As for Houston, she is still taking steps towards sobriety in an outpatient rehabilitation facility.

MOB + MULA$ = “THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER!!”

(Sept. 15) — The National Enquirer has made its name exposing John Edwards’ illegitimate child and the Elvis Presley morgue photo, but the real scoop may be how the paper actually got started — with a $25,000 loan from the Mafia.

Back in 1953, Gene Pope purchased The New York Enquirer, a low-selling afternoon newspaper that only did well on Sundays because it was the first with the late-night Saturday sports scores, and turned it into the National Enquirer, a publication that changed journalism as we know it.

But Pope’s son, Paul David Pope, says that in order to buy the paper, his dad had to borrow money from a family friend, Frank Costello, one of the biggest mobsters in New York at the time.

“He was my father’s godfather — not in the literal sense,” the younger Pope told AOL News. “But he saw it as going to a family friend. He eventually paid back Costello and that was it.”
