7 Times a Reality Star Dated a Professional Athlete

Why do so many reality stars date professional athletes? Our guess is that it’s because they’re both almost famous. Oh, and they’re both pretty damn hot. Both reality stars and sports players are only as famous as the TV channels that they star on, and unlike superstars like J Biebs, if they’re confronted by someone who doesn’t watch TV, they’re shit out of luck.

The good thing is that they can increase their star power (and their income) by coupling up, which they do often.

1. Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann

Bravo TV

Kim and Kroy are arguably one of the cutest and least dysfunctional couples on reality TV. You can watch their hilarious shenanigans on Real Housewives of Atlanta, or if you wanna see Kroy’s butt in spandex, you can watch him play football (he’s currently a free agent, so stay tuned).

2. Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler

LA Times

Are you happy that Kristin finally found a bae that she doesn’t have to fight with L.C. over? Or do you miss the drama and wish you could see Kristin with Stephen instead of her Chicago Bears quarterback hubby?

3. Carl Crawford and Evelyn Lozada

E! News

Basketball Wives‘ Evelyn Lozada apparently loves dudes who play with balls for a living, because she’s ditched her baller and is now married to Los Angeles’ Dodgers star Carl Crawford. She also now has her own show Livin’ Lozada. Go girl.

4. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odem


When you think reality star, you think the Kardashians, and although Kimmy didn’t have the best luck with her athlete bae, Khloe decided to try her own. Unfortunately, we all know that Lamar didn’t keep up so well with his Kardashian, and it’s unclear where the couple currently stands.

5. Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett

InTouch Weekly

Kendra has come so far from the days when she used to sleep with Hef! She’s graduated from Girls Next Door into her own show, and her fam is actually cute af.

6. Paris Hilton and Andy Roddick

Paris has used her fame for good purpose, and that purpose has been dating every semi-famous hottie she can get her hands on, from rock stars to heirs to athletes. She had a brief fling with Andy Roddick allegedly, but you can see her entire romantic history here.

7. Evan Longoria and Jamie Edmondson


There aren’t many couples as hot as Evan Longoria and Jaime Edmondson together. Like… Damn. Evan plays baseball for Tampa Bay, and Jaime Edmondson is a playmate who appeared on The Amazing Race. All we know is that their baby is going to be hot af.
