At times, gossip bloggers and entertainment writers are handed a gift that is so surreal that it seems as if it dropped straight down from gossip heaven. The Kim Kardashian and Ray J sextape; President Bill Clinton’s sex scandal; Beyonce becoming pregnant by Jay-Z; and Lil Wayne’s quest to impregnate the entire female population are a few stories that gossip writers/bloggers have built careers on.
However, when gossip writers discovered that Sarah Palin had a one night stand with former NBA star Glenn Rice, it’s likely that more than a few hyperventilated. But let’s face it, we all can agree that this is a hilarious, odd and an attention grabbing story.
Revealed in Joe McGinniss’ new book “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” McGinniss claims that Palin and Rice met during the Great Alaska Shootout in 1987. Palin, 23 at the time, was a sports reporter and Rice was a standout athlete at the University of Michigan. Palin interviewed Rice and their Q & A session apparently extended into the bedroom. The book also claims that Palin had a fetish for black guys.
Rice or Palin has yet to issue a statement regarding the matter, but this story will gain more traction as McGinniss promotes his book within the upcoming weeks. Gossip bloggers are eagerly waiting for more details of this story to unfold.–amir shaw
