Katherine Webb will be officially making her TV debut this year. The now infamous former Miss Alabama thanks to ESPN reporter Brent Musberger has officially signed with the reality TV show, Celebrity Diving… yes, it’s a thing… In the show celebrities will attempt high-dives and then be judged by Olympians… Well, that and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, it’s not a bad start.
So, uh… does Katherine Webb owe ESPN or Brent Musberger any royalties?!? Ever since Brent gushed over Miss Alabama on live TV, Webb has gained Twitter followers, signed a modeling contract with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and now just got a gig with Inside Edition!
So, apparently TMZ was able to get a comment out of ESPN announcer Brent Musburger regarding his reaction to Katherine Webb. Brent’s response: “Individuals say what individuals say. And corporations do what corporations do… Obviously, they felt it was the right thing for them to do”
Oh no. In unfortunate news today, ESPN news anchor Stuart Scott confirmed that his cancer has returned and he will be returning to chemo therapy. However, Stuart say he will still continue to fight the disease, work, and work out. Stay strong Stuart!
Wow. Things are really working out well for Katherine Webb after ESPN sportscaster Brent Musberger gushed over her during the BCS National Championship game. Webb just tweeted she is doing a modeling shoot with Sports Illustrated and the swimsuit edition is due out next month! NICE!
Katherine Webb must be clearly loving all the new attention. She told The Today Show that no apology was necessary from ESPN. However, we’re beginning to think she might owe Musberger some royalty fees for his promotional work.
