James Harden’s girlfriend Maliah Michel has had some experiences, if you care to get to know her. She might actually be more interesting than her rockstar basketball boyfriend! Yes, she’s a stripper with some considerable assets, but that’s just the beginning of the tale, no pun intended.
Maliah managed to get herself a scholarship to Cal State Northridge for softball, and she lived with her sister and her sister’s two children in a small apartment thanks to an assisted living program called Americorps. To earn money, she became a stripper at the age of 18, starting at a “white club in Beverly Hills,” according to her Vibe Magazine interview, earning 80 dollars a night. When she switched to a black club, she started earning a minimum of 500 dollars a night. She credits the uptick in monetary appreciation to her voluptuousness. She saved and earned enough money to buy her own house in Las Vegas. Then she got engaged, but her fiance got addicted to both crack and heroin, and she lost all of her money and her house. She then became deeply religious and quit stripping. “All I did was go to church. I mean, I literally had to pull a gun on my ex-fiance. That whole experience led me to God.” Goodness gracious! I feel like I’m reading a 21st Century draft of The Brothers Karamazov (only with cool strippers instead of Russian brothers).
Well, things are looking up for M&M now. Things are so good, in fact, that she’s relaxed her piety and returned to the occasional high-end stripping. Before getting together with James Harden, she starred in Drake’s cinematic music video “Find Your Love.” She was with him for awhile, but she’s since upgraded to the 6’5” Mr. Harden-Fast, who is one of the league’s premier scoring guards. After leaving Oklahoma City, James’ numbers shot up, and he’s now averaging 24 PPG over the last two seasons. He got paid over $13,000,000 for his 2013-14 season. I wonder if his contract stipulated for him to be paid in all one-dollar bills?

San Jose Sharks rookie forward Tomas Hertl is the new rage. And Thomas Hertl’s girlfriend Aneta Netolicka is right up there with him.
The couple from the Czech Republic is quite a pair. The lovely Aneta Netolicka is a gymnast. According to lucywho.com she’s the 74th most famous gymnast in the world and the 41st most famous Czech celebrity starting with the letter "A”. Since there isn’t much information going around about the gorgeous brunette, it’s possible her fame may be due to the fact that she’s dating Tomas Hertl.
Apparently Tomas Hertl’s mother likes her son’s choice in women. She was photographed sitting next to Aneta Netolicka when Tomas Hertl scored four goals in the Shark’s win over the New York Rangers this past fall.
Aneta Netolicka’s stunning looks and Tomas Hertl’s obvious fate as a future NHL star have drawn the inevitable comparison to an iconic Czech photo. It was Jaromir Jagr who posed with a former girlfriend before becoming a Hall of Famer. In the photo, a shirtless Jagr held a pitchfork while his unnamed girlfriend sported a Jagr jersey and leaned up against him. Recently, a Czech news outlet got Tomas Hertl and Aneta Netolicka to recreate the famous shot. After that, one thing led to another and Aneta Netolicka became somewhat of a star on Twitter.
After that, there was the solitary bikini photo published on a Czech sports site that sent US sports bloggers into a frenzy. But it hasn’t distracted the media from taking their eyes off Tomas Hertzl. On Decemeber 31st Tomas Hertle underwent surgery in Cleveland to repair damage to his right medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament. As of March 19th, CSN Bay Area reported Tomas Hertl’s knee is healing. Although he’s not skating at close to full speed yet, he started picking up the pace of his workouts. It won’t be long before he’s back on the ice, and when he does, he’s bound to become a force of nature once again. Keep both eyes on this couple!

Nicolas Batum’s wife Melanie Pimentel Batum is another beautiful woman who appreciates fashion and style, but it turns out she’s quite proactive about her passion. She is a professional makeup artist who’s traveled to over 30 countries getting paid to work for movies and television shows. When she came to the United States to support her husband Nicolas, she couldn’t last more than two weeks before laying plans to release a shoe line. She’s also planning to open a beauty bar in Portland, which I’m hoping is an establishment that sells beauty by the bottle. Who doesn’t like beauty?
Certainly not Nicolas Batum. In 2008, Nic was acquired by the Blazers via the Rockets in one of those confusing draft-day trades where players end up going here there and everywhere. Prior to coming to the States, the native Frenchman was considered one of the best players in Europe (basically a prerequisite to get into the NBA). His averages as a FIBA player were slightly lower than what he posts as an NBA’er now: 13 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 5 APG, and 80% free-throw percentage. These numbers have justifiably translated to a $43 million dollar contract with the Blazers.
In 2012, there was a small, brief trauma for the Batums when they received a number of racist tweets telling them they weren’t wanted in various flyover states. The vast majority of people’s reactions to Batum’s free agency, of course, were positive and supportive, and they simply paid the tweets no attention. Miss Batum, being of Spanish and Algerian descent, might have challenged the ignorant twitter users to point to Algeria or Spain on a map, but she’s too busy being ambitious, beautiful, and fabulous.
