UPDATE: 01/31/2013: In the biggest understatement to ever be written on this site, Colin Kaepernick has been a popular topic of conversation among commenters and emailers lately.
Between learning more about the fate of ex girlfriend Corban Fennell, and the emergence of his biological mother, we've heard a lot from the Kaepernick army. After launching this post about the rumors of his new girlfriend J. Marie Maestre, we've been inundated with conflicting information. Some are under the impression the two are together, while one astute reader pointed out that there may be another woman in the picture.
Our reader pointed out that one of Colin Kaepernick's girlfriend's from the past may not be so much the past. The reader informed us that a woman named Aurelia Houston dated Kaepernick back in his college days at Nevada, and the couple stays in touch. After reading through some of Aurelia's tweets, it's clear that she's still in regular contact with the Kaepernick family. We'll keep an eye on this to see if she winds up in NOLA celebrating or sorrowing with the rest of the Kaepernick's, and if so, we'll have our answer.
Till then,... let's just take another look at J. Marie!
Wow. While we can't say that we're surprised that Super Bowl bound QB Colin Kaepernick dumped former girlfriend Corban Fennell - but we're at least a bit surprised as to how quickly he did it. And how well he did for himself in the process. It's funny how winning can upgrade your life. Obviously Kaepernick is far more popular now than he was a few months ago, but the level of woman that he can pull in now has obviously increased immensely.
You want evidence? Check out the new woman rumored to hold the title of Colin Kaepernick's girlfriend: model J. Marie Maestre. Obviously a huge upgrade. His celebrity has actually increased hers as well, evidenced by the fact that her Twitter account was recently changed to inactive. Lucky for you, and for us, that we've got some photos from it to show off. Check 'em out and just pray that she makes an appearance at the big game in a few days.
As for J. Marie Maestre herself, here's what we know. She grew up in Concord, CA and graduated from Clayton Valley Highschool in 2006. She's a young buck born in 1986 and just turned 26. She's obvioulsy a model and currently lives in, big surprise, San Francisco. Check her our at her website officialjmarie.com.

What is there left to say about Jerry Rice? The man came from a small Division 1-AA college (Mississippi Valley State) to set all kinds of records in the NFL and is the greatest wide receiver of all time (apologies to Randy Moss, the Mothership and a certain website named after headlines, but you're just wrong and no amount of stat manipulation can convince me otherwise). The man is a legend and it's fitting that it took someone nicknamed Megatron to break his single season receiving yards record.
Rice's career spanned almost 20 years, from 1985 through 2004. Excluding the one year he was injured and his final two seasons, he never amassed less than 800 yards. He holds the all time record for career receiving yards, receptions and touchdowns. He retired in 2004 after two lackluster seasons with the Seahawks.
Maybe his retirement was just a coincidence, but shortly after he decided to hang 'em up, things began going south for Jerry Rice's wife Jackie Rice. Jerry and his wife began having problems and filed for divorce in 2007, officially splitting in December 2009. During the divorce proceedings, it came out that Rice had engaged in many extramarital affairs during their time together and even had a paternity suit filed against him in 2002.
Rice has since moved on in the dating world, and wasted no time in doing so. Jerry Rice's girlfriend is Latisha Pelayo. The couple has been dating since 2008. Pelayo owns and operates a skin care salon. Not surprisingly, Pelayo met the still very much in shape Rice at the gym.
Jerry Rice and his ex-wife Jackie Rice were married on September 8th, 1987. Together they have 3 children - Jacqui, Jerry Jr. and Jada. Jerry Jr. has followed in his father's path, currently playing as a wide receiver at UCLA. Rice himself has kept busy in retirement, finishing second during his season on Dancing With the Stars and was even featured with his dog in a Wii football game.

Look we all know Joe Montana was probably the perfect QB. Not only could he play the position better than anyone else (sorry Tom, it's true) but "Joe Cool" had Q rating through the roof, making him one of the biggest cross over starts of the 80's. He also had this "All American" vibe that everyone young and old craves.
Joe Montana's wife Jennifer Wallace Montana met him while filming a Schick commercial in 1985 and they've been together ever since. Add in four kids and you have a real American hero. Yet the 80's where a time before TMZ and Perez Hilton so little imperfections could sneak by. Good thing for Joe because he did a great job covering up the fact he was a little bit of a womanizer in his day.
Joe Montana's first wife was his high school sweetheart, Kim Moses. Joe and Kim married in 1974 while he attended Notre Dame. That marriage didn't make it through college as the legend of Joe started to grow amongst the collegiate ranks. Side note: In 2008 Joe sued Kim after she tried to sell some of their love letters and memorabilia from their Notre Dame years together.
Fast forward to the NFL, and Joe's career is taking off while the legend is growing and growing. Joe moved on from Kim and married his second wife Cass Castillo, in 1981. Cass would eventually meet the same fate as wife number one when Joe and Cass divorced in 1984. Now I'm sure it's possible that Joe had some bad look/poor choices with first two wives. He has been married to Jennifer since 1985, after all, so he clearly figured it out. However I think in the dark day of celebrity media coverage someone like Joe could do whatever he pleased and still keep the "Joe Cool" persona image in tact. The question begs to be asked, would we still look at Joe the way we do now if he played in this era? Would that "All American" and "Joe Cool" image work with today's media coverage?
