UPDATE 08-14-2013: Ryan Anderson's girlfriend Gia Allemand has died as a result of a suicide attempt on Monday. She was hospitalized in New Orleans after hanging herself and died today of "critical loss of brain and organ function". There are reports that Gia Allemand was distraught over her relationship with Ryan Anderson.
Let's not kid ourselves, Ryan Anderson is living the life these days. After a huge year for the Orlando Magic Ryan signed a massive deal with the New Orleans Hornets/Pelicans. As incredible as that deal was, even considering all the zeros at the end of the paycheck, it pales in comparison to Ryan Anderson's girlfriend Gia Allemand.
Back in February of 2011 Gia Allemand was on a photo shot in the Bahamas when she was introduced to Ryan. As I mentioned these days Ryan is a household name in the NBA, and was really the only bright spot to the side show train wreck that was the 2011-12 Orlando Magic. Before that season however Ryan was just another struggling NBA player trying to find his spot. Gia however was a household name for quite a few reasons. In 2007 she posed as a swimsuit model in Maxim and was plastered over the walls of college and high school boys across the country. Gia hit the big time when she was one of the ladies "competing" over Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor. Gia almost found the man of her dreams but was the second to last lady to exit the show. Gia was not done with the reality show circuit as she was a contestant on The Bachelor spin-off Bachelor Pad. Can't say I caught any episodes of Bachelor Pad but I'm sure I have a good idea what I missed.
Now back to Ryan and Gia, shortly after meeting, Gia was offered a job that would have her traveling constantly to and from the Bahamas. To make travel easier, she moved to Orlando so she and Ryan could continue their relationship while having quick access to a domestic airport with easy international/Bahamian travel options. To the best of our knowledge the relationship is still going strong even with Ryan moving to New Orleans.

... at least we think the two are dating.
I probably spent the last 30 minutes trying to figure this out and I'm still not 100% if Austin Rivers is still dating Brittany Hotard. Here is what we do know.
For those not familiar with Austin, shame on you. Austin was the #1 recruit in college basketball and went to Duke where he put up some impressive numbers as a freshman. The numbers were good enough for Austin to declare for the 2012 NBA Draft where he could go anywhere from 8-18. Also Austin is the son of Celtics Head Coach Doc Rivers so there is no clue where he got his basketball skills from. Austin met Brittany while the two attended high school in Winter Park, Florida.
Like any true basketball player Austin was dating a few classes up with Brittany, as she was a senior when Austin was a sophmore. Now this is where the story slowly gets confusing. Birttany graduated high school and attend Wallace Community College to stay close to Austin. At Wallace CC she was on the cheerleading squad. Our audience first learned about Brittany when she appeared next to Austin at a Duke basketball game while he was being recruited... and unfortunately, this is where our info drys up. I can't find anything that says the couple is still dating. There are a couple of twitter posts from Austin with Brittany's name in them, including one where he asks someone to take down a fake account under her name. This would make me believe they are still together but again we can't confirm this.
I think we will get our answer during the draft as I'd be shocked if Brittany wasn't in attendance if she was still with Austin. But if she is,... we'll come through with photographic evidence for you.

Peja and Aleka have two children together, Andrej Stojakovic and Mila Stojakovic.
Peja Stojakovic's wife Aleka Kamila is a successful Greek fashion model appearing on the covers Madame, Marie Claire and Esquire. Aleka has also done some television work in other countries. Unfortunately, those TV shows are in other languages, and I therefore have no idea what they are called or what they are about... but really, do you even care right now?
Enjoy the view of Peja Stojakovic's Wife.
