Karlos Williams' girlfriend Miranda Wilhelm is trying to call off investigations into a domestic battery complaint involving her and Karlos. As you might imagine, this is really bad PR for Florida State, as the school has been riddled with these issues recently. There have been three separate Flordia State starters to be accused of spousal abuse in the past two years. I don't really know how to respond to that. Can we just not hit the ladyfolk, please?

Mirana made a statement on Instagram with pictures explaining how she suffers from abuse, and she includes shots of welts and bruises. It's important to know that Karlos Williams was never mentioned by name. Here is the statement:

Domestic violence is NEVER okay. I have learned why women keep secrets and [are] scared to come forward. I'm ashamed to say I did the same thing but I am ready to speak up for women in situations like myself. I pray one day everyone sees your true colors and for what you really are. This was done to me 2 nights ago by a man I lived with for two years and bared two children by. Hopefully therapy will help you one day fix this and your sons never even work their hands to hurt a woman, mind you a pregnant woman to this extent.

The battery complaint report was not filed by her, and she told everyone she'd never spoken with the police. She has since deleted her Instagram account, and we already know she's asking police to stop investigations;  they rarely do in cases like these, as I understand it. We can postulate that one of her friends or family members saw her Instagram post and made a call to police on behalf of Wilhelm. You'd like to think there's a Larry David-type situation that explains all of this-- you know, she'd been to a really intense masseuse that gave her bruises, and she was playing a joke over Instagram. Sadly, that seems highly unlikely. I'm curious to see where this goes.

The status of their relationship is unclear at this time. There are conflicting reports suggesting they have split, while others indicate they are still together.

Justin Brent's girlfriend Lisa Ann is a pornographic film actress, and apparently she is an actress of the first stripe. She is reported to be the most popular porn star in the world, as a matter of fact. Now, Justin is a freshman at Notre Dame, which means he is no more than 18 years old. Lisa Ann is a senior at the University of Vivid Entertainment, and she is 42 years of age. The Cougar has pounced, folks.

You can get a sense for Lisa's love of football from her Twitter and Instagram feeds. She is a big Eagles fan, as she was born in Easton, Pennsylvania, and she goes to football games every now and again. She also plays a good deal of fantasy football, and she's quite serious about it judging from her constant updates on Twitter. As a matter of fact, Lisa is a big sports fan in general. She's got a signed Michael Jordan basketball that was given to her as a gift by some dude on the SWAT team in Miami. I'm guessing he was hot for teacher. Well, Justin Brent can now say that Lisa Ann is his girlfriend, and no signed basketball was necessary since she approached him. TMZ reported they were both traveling, and she gave him her number.

Man, how weird would it be if Justin decided to marry his girlfriend Lisa? Lisa is most famous for acting in a porno flick called Who's Nailin' Paylin?. In the movie, Lisa is apparently a dead ringer for a sexed-up Sarah Palin, and she gets it on with other powerful political figures played by other porn actresses. The film was a big success, and subsequent sequels followed. Interestingly, way back before Lisa became a porn actress, she was on the Howard Stern show as a "Snapple Girl" on Stern's channel 9 show. A Snapple Girl was basically just a girl holding Snapple bottles as a sponsor for the show. Lisa appears to have a much larger nose in the YouTube clip I found, but let's not get all Rene Zelweggery about that. Little did anyone know she'd soon be able to professionally hold more than just a Snapple bottle.

Lesley Visser's Husband Dick Stockton

Lesley Visser and ex-husband Dick Stockton are broadcasting legends. They're heavyweights who've been in the game for so long, they helped shape the language of sports broadcasting. They met in 1975 at Game 6 of the World Series. It was the classic game that Carlton Fisk won with a home run that bounced off the foul pole. People forget that was in the 12th inning! If you watch the clip, Dick Stockton was the guy who was broadcasting the game, and after the hit he delivers a fairly standard reaction from the booth: "There it goes-- a long drive. If it stays fair...home run!" Visser was there too. She was covering the game as a writer for The Boston Globe.

Visser and ex-husband Stockton were married from 1983 to 2010. They had a good long run, and that entire time the two of them were staying incredibly busy doing what they do best-- broadcasting sports. Lesley is now married to a fellow named Bob Kanuth. In a recent interview, Lesley said of her legacy: "This is what gratifies me. I've been a beat writer, I've been a columnist, I've been a feature reporter, I've been a panelist on The NFL Today, I've done the sideline thing. So having done all those jobs gratifies me that a young woman now can say I want to do that and it does exist." Well, she's climbed the K2 of sports broadcasting mountains for women: game analyst. She sits around with all the retired former players and talks about the game. That's pretty outstanding. Fox has been criticized for only hiring women sideline reporters based on their looks, and this is both understandable and a little unfortunate. Visser is the one who laid the groundwork to even be a woman broadcasting sports, and she's a real journalist. According to Wikipedia, her broadcasting credits include the Final Four, NBA Finals, World Series, Triple Crown, Monday Night Football, the Olympics, the Super Bowl, the World Figure Skating Championships and the U.S. Open. That is a consummate pro.
