Chandler Parsons' girlfriend Toni Garrn


Chandler Parsons' girlfriend Toni Garrn is a pretty big name model who has previously dated Leonardo Dicaprio. She has a pretty memorable face, and it's very symmetrical and, of course, pleasing to the eye. She and Chandler were spotted on the streets of Manhattan holding hands and kissing, and she went ahead and posted the picture of them kissing on her Instagram to keep things transparent or whatever. Why go to TMZ when you can just look at her own pictures, right?

Toni holds court with other big name models, including Marko Jaric's ex-wife Adriana Lima. You see them hanging out at fashion events on the red carpet. Chandler Parsons' girlfriend Toni Garnn is kind of a big deal in the fashion world, because she takes pictures with big designers as well. Karl Lagerfeld took some pics with her. It may be that she was modeling some of his clothes. She's super tall and has the perfect modeling body. She has two Instagram accounts-- one where it's all portfolio work, and the other is her more personal moments where she's just snapping photos like us mortals. She seems to have a really good sense of humor too. She does a lot of jokey type stuff with videos like lip-sync from cartoons. It looks like she does a good amount of charity work too, but I'm a little confused about what charities they are-- something having to do with AIDS I think?

Toni's also been on the cover of Vogue, and that's essentially the Mt. Olympus of being a model. Once you're on the cover of that magazine, you're like a goddess. She seems to take it in stride. She's also been on the cover of Bazaar-- another huge modeling accomplishment. I watched Toni do one of those yoga things where you do a handstand and then walk up the wall and walk down. It looks like good exercise. What else can I say about this woman? It's Toni Garrn, people. She's a quintessential super model.

Montrezl Harrell's girlfriend Randi Ewing


Montrezl Harrell's girlfriend Randi Ewing is indeed the daughter of Patrick Ewing, and she completed her masters in communications from Louisville after graduating from Fordham here in New York City. I've been reading her blog, and it's mostly about her studies from college in communications and how to reach people via social media in business.

Apparently back when the 2012 Olympics were happening Montrezel Harrell's girlfriend Randi Ewing got to travel to London and work as a production assistant for NBC. That's certainly a nice start to a broadcast journalism career. I know a few player wives and girlfriends in the past have gotten their degree in broadcast journalism and then seemed to have trouble knowing what to do next. Becoming a production assistant is what I would call a the perfect move in that field. Before Randi started doing stuff in the real world, though, she was a killer volleyball player. Apparently at both Fordham and Louisville she was known for blocks. Blocks in volleyball is just when you stuff the ball back in the other team's zone after they try to hit it into yours. She was only the fourth player in Fordham history to record 300 blocks, and she didn't even play her freshman year because of a shin injury.

I also read Randi's post about her trip to Nevada. She comes off kind of whiny in the first part because she's complaining about air travel and how her flight (presumably with Montrezl) was cancelled. Sorry, Randi, but airlines suck. You should know that by now. After they managed to jump on another flight and get to Nevada, they went to Las Vegas and then the Grand Canyon. Apparently Randi really dug the canyon. She said, "Seeing the Grand Canyon was literally the most humbling and amazing experiences I have had in my lifetime. Seeing something that large and naturally made really makes you feel small in the scheme of things and very appreciative."

Myles Turner's girlfriend Franchesca


Myles Turner's girlfriend Franchesca graduated in May of 2014 and documented parts of her graduation on Instagram. She is a proud Puerto Rican and is obviously excited about Myles' prospects for the NBA. At one time Franchesca even played basketball at Euless Trinity High School in Texas. I'm pretty sure that's one of those high schools that takes football insanely seriously as well, in case you were wondering where to find good high school football players, but that's neither her nor there.

So we have another huge fan of Kim Kardashian here as well. I think young people see her as a 21st century Marilyn Monroe or something (even though she doesn't do anything). Myles Turner's girlfriend Franchesca frequently posts tweets and pictures of her because, you know, she doesn't get enough attention from the media. But that's her prerogative, of course. Other important life moments tweeted by Franchesca include "literally don't remember the last time my phone was at 100%". That one actually got favorited twice. Like most people, she's also a fan of Steph Curry and his family, and who isn't really? She's also got a job somewhere but I'm not sure where. She was talking about not having school but having to start work at 8.

Myles Turner's girlfriend Franchesca is wondering if she'll live in Texas for the rest of her life. I can answer that question for her: if Myles gets drafted (and he will) and you are still dating him (and you will be) you will have to decide if you want to move with him (and you will). There's very little chance he'll be drafted by a Texas team, but it's still a possibility. In that case, I'd say Franchesca is either out of luck or in luck depending on how she views her home state. I think she probably holds Texas in high regard but is curious about seeing more of the country. Franchesca's favorite musician is a fella' by the name of Dom Kennedy, and she attends his concerts whenever she can.
