Wow. Am I glad I don’t work at ESPN. (OK that’s a super lie..it’s been my dream to be Michelle Beadle since..well..since Michelle Beadle) but for real, it seems like working for ESPN is like being a high school sophomore all over again. Rumors are flying around about my girl Michelle, and I’m not sure what to think.
According to sources, after the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, ESPN”s Michelle Beadle hit the town for many late night parties. After all, she’s 35, smoking hot, and single..who wouldn’t do that?
She tells sources that when she returned back to Connecticut from Los Angeles she was called into her office by the Vice President of Content Integration and Strategic Planning, Marcia Keegan, who was informed by ESPN colleagues that Michelle was “behaving inappropriately” during the after parties. One rumor involved Super Bowl champion quarterback Aaron Rodgers in which Beadle told him “I just want to get fucked“. Of course, Beadle denies saying those things to Rodgers. “I got angry because everything she asked me about was absolutely not true” she told Deadspin earlier today.
Keegan told Beadle that co-workers at ESPN had accused the adorable blonde of being highly intoxicated and using drugs at the ESPY after-parties.
Annoyed beyond belief at this point, Beadle of course asks her boss which colleague had spread the rumor, she wants a lawyer and all that fun stuff. Of course Keegan didn’t tell her. (I can take a wild guess of who it was… after all that arch-enemy Erin Andrews stuff we saw in that ESPN book). So, Beadle being the mature mid-thirty year old she is, calmed down and returned to her job, hoping that all these slutty Green Bay rumors were behind her. THEN the Clay Matthews rumors started… Apparently the rumor says that Beadle got hammered and put the moves on Aaron Rodgers .. then after he turned her down, she went and slept with Clay Matthews instead.
According the Michelle, she spent most of the night with her girl-friends who accompanied her on the trip. Being one of the first getaways that she had since she broke up with hockey analyst Matthew Barnaby, she was doing all the girly things that us girls do post break up…bonding, laughing, drinking martinis etc.
So, right now, Beadle is determined to find out who started these rumors even though her boss won’t give up any names. Oh, high school type drama….. clearly, people just talk a lot.
