ESPN's Michelle Beadle Acts Like a Horny Guy & the Sports World Goes Nuts

10

michelle beadle espnSports reporter and host for ESPN Michelle Beadle appears to be in hot water for comments she may or may not have said when celebrating after the ESPY Awards a couple of weeks ago. Yes, she admits she was party-hopping all around L.A. What's hazier, though, is whether or not she put the moves on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rumor has it that she acted super inappropriately, blurting out, "I just wanna get f----ed!" in his presence, and she was also accused of being drunk and using drugs that night. When these rumors got back to her boss, Vice President of Content Integration and Strategic Planning Marcia Keegan, Beadle got reprimanded about the whole thing.

Now, Beadle's angry. And you know what? She has every right to be.

First off, it's very possible that she didn't act inappropriately at all. Beadle says everything Marcia heard was "absolutely not true."

Being a woman, an attractive woman at that, has had to have set her up for all kinds of petty rumors and lies from the day she first became successful. Of course, if she's gotten all the way to the top at ESPN, it must be because she's a drugged-out whore, right? UGH.

But you know, I wouldn't even care if there was some truth to these rumors. Maybe she did say she wanted to get effed! So what? But I'm sure that men in Beadle's position have acted inappropriately in similar situations, and NEVER been called out for it, never been "tattled on" by co-workers or admonished by their higher-ups. Sometimes, I really think women have made progress in the sports world ... and other times, it seems like it's a boys' club that's still living in the dark ages. In Michelle's case, it really feels like the latter. Just because she's one of the only women braving that boys' club doesn't mean she deserves to have her reputation attacked like this.

What do you think about the Michelle Beadle rumors?

I think because you weren't there, you really don't know if it's true or not; so why write about it until then?  This was a waste of my time reading through this and I'm still shocked at myself for replying as well.

If reporters only wrote articles on stories they were present for then there would be nothing on the Internet. I think beadle should be left alone by her bosses considering it's all rumors. There is nothing on tape showing her acting inappropriately, no named sources and no arrest.

Call me twisted, but I think it's funny as hell to think that she was "sexually harassing" the darling of this year's super bowl. I love it! But that she settled with Clay Matthews is disturbing, I guess she doesn't date black men?

Oh yea, poor poor western women! The laziest subset of all humanity who enjoy more modern perks and put in less manual labor than anybody. Now they let you into college easier and are more likely to give you scholarships. The entire world bends over backwards for you, but please continue crying me a river about your "hardships"!

Call me twisted, but I find sexual harassment hilarious when women are harassed. Lol! Oh, is that not okay, or does sexual harassment only become funny if it is done to guys, Jen? Either it is funny to sexually harass both sexes or it is not funny for both sexes. Sexual harassment is not funny.

I think she is a very nice looking woman! Success brings on jealousy and envy! So there are going to be haters trying to tarnish her career!

so she was drinking coming off of a breakup and out with her girlfriends and stated a basic human need. she just wanted to get effed. just so happened to be in the company of aaron rogers. whats the big deal?

She's a whore who doesn't belong in the sports world, nor does any woman really. Women of today are filthy, whoreish, little cunts who deserve everything that has happened to them.

I am so happy she got called out on this. Awesome. It is a man's world. Deal with it.
