Finding out who Anthony Rizzo was dating involved the all-important team & wives fashion show. These things are gold mines for figuring out who's dating who, and that's what we do. Anthony Rizzo's girlfriend Chelsea Smith is a young, bubbly family-oriented girl. That's what I get from her on first glance, but let's try to delve a little deeper here. And in a moment of candor, we'll admit off the bat that it does appear we're operating on older information here, and that Mr. Rizzo & Ms. Smith have called things off.
From what I can tell, Anthony Rizzo's girlfriend Chelsea Smith is a recently graduated student who really just spends a lot of time with a few close friends and mostly family. She recently took her first trip with a good friend of hers to Atlanta and posted the photo online, which is indicative of a kind of inexperience with travel. It's also telling when she tags the photo with "shaky knees." Anyway, there's not much else to dig out of her photos since they're all just her smiling, saying little in the description, and always being with either family or a close childhood friend. So there's not much being found out on that front, and Anthony has posted not one picture of her online. However...
Still, Anthony Rizzo's girlfriend Chelsea Smith did get the shoulder-tap for the a fashion show held by David DeJesus and his wife Kim DeJesus. That was a pretty clear sign from Mr. Rizzo that he's taking the relationship to the next level, as only true girlfriends and wives usually take part in fashion shows. It would seem like a pretty significant step for the paid, except it does appear the two have since split as we mentioned above. That sort of makes me wonder what it's like when the longtime girlfriends or wives learn of a breakup among player girlfriends. Like, "Hey, I haven't seen so-and-so in awhile, where is she?" The player has no choice but to say they've moved on, and then that player wife/girlfriend has to just pour some beer or something? I guess they can always just stay friends.
Mike Greenberg's wife Stacy Greenberg is as big or bigger a fan of posting pictures of their dog Phoebe as he is. I know this isn't anything quite newsworthy or something to necessarily lead with, but we here at PW believe giving you a real-life perspective of someone in their day-to-day life is critical. Either that, or we just see a lot of dog pics and feel the need to blab about them.
The lady does lead a pretty charmed life, and she takes partial ownership of her husband's new accomplishment-- a book about women with cancer. Mike Greenberg's wife Stacy Greenberg helped him edit the book as he was writing it, sharing her own perspectives about how women would react to certain situations or what they'd call parts of their wardrobe (she mentioned that no woman in her 20's would use the word "blouse"). Mike and Stacy recently had a chance to pop over to Manhattan to see Larry David's new play Fish In The Dark. Those tickets were going for about 300 dollars each, and attending the show means you are high society. So my hats off to these two for getting to watch David live out the plot of his own show and act on a stage.
Stacy is one of those very nice posters on Twitter who wishes people happy holidays every time one rolls around, and she takes family photos and says stuff like "from our family to yours." Mike Greenberg's wife Stacy Greenberg is an all-around nice lady. So in between posts of Phoebe the fluffy white poodle/lab mix (I'm guessing), she posts pictures of the places she travels to with her family or with Mike. Recently, they've sort of come into a comfortable spot for independence since their youngest daughter is now graduated to high school. I think in general that means the parents can do a little more for themselves, but Stacy actually doesn't strike me as the type of lady who likes to take a break from the kids.
Arianny Celeste's boyfriend Travis Barker is a drummer of Blink 182 and other acts. So neither one of these people are really athletes (though it could sort of be argued that Barker is an athlete because of the drumming) but since Arianny walks around a ring where athletes compete, we'll go with that connection.
Barker's always got the same tough-guy look on his face in every photo that he's ever taken in. He's like a one-note guy when it comes to having a camera pointed at him. Travis Barker's girlfriend Arianny Celeste shows a little more variety in the photos she's taken in (many of which are taken by herself). I personally am not a fan of the unnatural look, but that's just me, and Arianny is in good shape and is a pretty lady. She's recently taken to Instagram advertisements with a sponsorship coming from Protein World. She will pose next to some protein powder or a "fat melter" product for cash. I guess that's how you monetize an account that has over 1,000,000 followers. In one photo, she's wearing almost nothing, holding her phone with her right hand, and in her left hand is a product that says "lean muscle," and her silicone chest is on full display right in the middle of the photo. As soon as someone I follow on Instagram starts holding up diet pills in their photos, I hit the un-follow button, but that's just me.
That's basically it for her activity: lots and lots of skimpy pictures of herself in photographs that are generally nicely done. Travis Barker's girlfriend Arianny Celeste did share a pleasant little quote a few weeks back: "We get so worried about being pretty. Let's be pretty kind. Pretty funny. Pretty smart. Pretty strong." Spoiler alert-- when she says "we" what she actually means is "I." That's a nice sentiment, though. In the world of social media, part of the self-congratulatory nature of sharing statements like these is the act of sharing them in itself makes you feel like you've done something. I guess in a way she put out some nice vibes to a million people, so that's something right? Hey, she's not holding up protein powder every day.
