Chris “Birdman” Andersen may have hit rock bottom after his last nasty break-up, but he sure is back on top now. And Chris Andersen’s girlfriend Tina Wiseman (now his fiancé actually) has everything to do with it.
The Miami Heat power forward/center came from rough beginnings. After his mom took off and his dad started traveling all over the world to sell his art, Chris Anderson was forced to choose between military school and a children’s home. He chose the children’s home and, from these humble beginnings, made it all the way to the NBA. Unfortunately Chris Andersen eventually got hit all at once with troubles once again and he got heavily involved with drugs. Chris Andersen not only lost his home in hurricane Katrina, his fiancé at the time Bandy Newman ended their engagement. But after a two-year ban from the NBA beginning in 2006, Chris Anderson made a solid comeback in 2008 and in 2013 was picked up by the Heat. Now he’s in his second year of playoffs with the Heat.
Birdman built his life back up and has an amazing fiancé to prove it. He first appeared for the press with Tina Wiseman about a year ago in June of 2013. The couple was photographed together at the Hard Rock Café in Hollywood, Florida. Tina Wiseman is apparently a model, and when photos of the couple hit the internet, fans went nutty.
In addition, Tina Wiseman seems to be really good for her 6 foot 10 tattooed man. She was there for him last June when Chris Andersen signed his one-year $1.7 million dollar NBA contract. Apparently Tine Wiseman expressed her happiness about the deal via Twitter. And the couple is also quite charitable together. In March of 2013, they were guests at a charitable event for Lauren’s Kids, an organization aimed at preventing childhood sexual abuse and helping survivors heal.
If the Heat do win the championship again this year, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of Tina Wiseman on the internet.

I feel dirty writing this post
LeBron James' mother, Gloria James, is now engaged to 31 year old Miami based rapper Da Real Lambo. The two have been dating for a couple years and plan to get married in the spring of 2014. LeBron, who turns 29 today, will have a stepfather just two years older than him.
Honestly, there's not a whole lot left to say. An iTunes search revealed nothing for Da Real Lambo in terms of music, but there are a few YouTube videos (including the high quality Cribs-esque piece on Lambo, described to go "in to the life of Da Real Lambo Crib to show you how he's living with out a major record deal."
Lambo, who's real name is Arthur Lambright, seems to enjoy the life that LeBron's soon-to-be-step-father includes. He's been quite public with his Instagram account as he follows the Heat through the 2013-2014 season, while including plenty of locker-room, backstage shots of him with the team.
Honestly, this is kind of a boring post.... but hey, remember when it was rumored that Gloria James was dating Delonte West?

LeBron James is arguably the biggest name in professional sports. Unfortunately, with that title and popularity comes increased scrutiny and media pressure. Therefore it should come as no surprise that just weeks before LeBron James and girlfriend Savannah Brinson walk down the aisle, rumors have started to fly accusing LeBron of stepping out. Bossip.com obtained a series of text messages between LeBron and model Carmen Ortega with each flirtily trying to arrange schedules for a meetup. The text messages were inconclusive to exactly what happened, and after rumors swirled with full internet-gale-force, Ortega performed an interview with Bossip.com to tell her side of the story.
Ortega told Bossip repeatedly that nothing happened between her and James, but did suggest that this wasn't his first time trying to set something up outside his relationship with Brinson. Ortega alleges that LeBron pursued her repeatedly, including one uncomfortable dinner together. Upon confronting LeBron with proof of his relationship to Brinson (and please, please tell me it was from this site,....), LeBron responded with "def don't believe everything you read." Ortega was also quick to opine that Brinson may be on board with LeBron's wandering eye, saying:
I almost feel like Savannah does know. He made some comments before. I asked him straight up, just tell me what’s your situation, he was more like “I’m not on lockdown, it’s not even like that. - Carmen Ortega - Bossip.com
While you'd be quick to give Ortega props for not getting into a physical relationship with a soon-to-be-married father of two, she's quick to credit her hesitation to a bad experience with Reggie Bush. There are allegations that Ortega, who admits to a relationship while Bush was with Kim Kardashian, was the other woman that ultimately broke them up.
While this article may have set the record for the number of times we've used some form of the word allege, it's pretty clear from Ortega's perspective that nothing happened with her and LeBron. Ortega will only speak to her involvement with James, and hints that there may be many more with a different ending to their story. As the wedding draws closer, will any more women come forward with stories on LeBron? We shall see...
