Sean Payton's girlfriend Skylene Montgomery


Sean Payton's girlfriend Skylene Montgomery was recently spotted with him at the ACM Awards. It's always weird to me that they called it the "Academy" of Country Music. Like, okay we went from the original Academy in ancient Greece with Aristotle and Socrates and Plato as members to having an Academy for country music. It would be pretty awesome if the members of the ACM are really distinguished intellectuals and scholars.

So what we do know about Sean Payton's girlfriend is that she was the 2008 Miss West Virginia, and she immediately parlayed her Miss WV title into dating Kenny Chesney back in 2008. She's obviously hot, but she also runs a fitness day camp for kids (or at least she used to back in 2008 when that aspect of her life was reported on). There's a bit of a pattern between Sean and Kenny as their dating Skylene goes-- both were rebounding recently off of long-term relationships. Back in 2008, Kenny was coming off a long relationship with a girl named Allison Stewart, and now Sean Payton is coming off a divorce in which his ex-wife took half. Sometimes you need to just date a West Virginian beauty queen.

The one consistent aspect of Skylene Montgomery that we can tell you about is her love of fitness. In particular, she loves to run. This keeps her looking slim and nice. Much of her social media presence is devoted to looking good and how to work out and how to eat right. It's standard fare for beautiful women who have made careers out of their looks. In Skylene's case, I like that she helped kids to stay fit. She still might maintain that business, and she certainly seems to know a lot about it-- her Pinterest account is littered with information about proper techniques and tips. She may want to write her own tips about how to score rebounding famous dudes.

Don King's wife Henrietta King


Don King's wife Henrietta King passed away in December of 2010 after having been married for fifty years. According to reports, Henrietta King passed away after a length battle with a number of conditions. In the immediate wake of her death, less scrupulous websites falsely reported that Don King had been shopping for engagement rings with his girlfriend. The site that reported it quickly retracted the claim and said it was false.

Don King is a polarizing figure, that's for sure. It's not for me to say if he's a good guy or not, but when the entire boxing community essentially turns its back on you after years and years of claims, one has to wonder what it's all about. Well, this was never a concern for Don King's wife Henrietta King. After her death, Don said he'd lost his best friend. She always declined to be interviewed and was by all accounts the exact opposite personality type as King-- that is, she was a decent person who didn't have an unending stream of B.S. pouring out of her face.

It's always sad to hear about someone being in a hospice, and that was eventually where Henrietta, whom Don called "Henry," ended up before her death. She would never accompany him to boxing matches, preferring a very quiet life away from any travel or glitz. It should be noted that Henrietta opted to stay with Don after he was convicted of murder and sentenced to some jail time. He spent three and half years in the clink before getting out and deciding on a career of ripping off professional boxers full-time.

Jose Iglesias' wife Arlene Iglesias


You know, the zoo seems to be a place where pro athletes go with their families just like regular people like you and me. Jose Iglesias' wife Arlene Iglesias was there with him a week ago, bopping around with their son Jose Jr. They managed to take a pretty blah picture, but they're all together so I guess it's not blah to them (the least you could do is situate yourselves in front of the flamingo section, guys). I get the impression that Jose posts stuff to Instagram in order to let his family members in Cuba know what he's up to.

Jose Iglesias' wife Arlene Iglesias lives with him in Miami along with their son and Jose's father Candelario (cool name). She's had to give him support after his mom got stuck in Cuba, but I'm very curious if there's policy changes for Cubans going to and from Cuba now that the US has dis-embargoed them and resumed relations. Wouldn't it follow that travelling should be allowed now? That kind of thing may be up to the Cuban government so I'm not sure. Anyhow, as far as Arlene goes, she's just another MLB wife ghost. She's lovely, but she's nowhere to be found on the 'ole internet. She moved to Miami from Boston when he was on the Red Sox, but I guess that means Jose just spends a lot of time alone in Detroit? They might fly to Detroit now and then, but that's kind of brutal when you've got a 3 year-old kid.

Jose and Arlene do know the value of their young chap, though. Jose said recently that his son was the most important thing in his life. Jose Jr. gets all his haircuts in the Cuban barbers in the city, as we can see from a picture posted of him a couple weeks ago. I'm guessing Arlene just stays around the house and cooks up some tasty Cuban meals for the boy.
