Chick from ‘The Bachelorette’ stepping out with Matt Leinart question mark?

First off, allow me to state that I have no firsthand knowledge about The Bachelorette, The Bachelor or The Bitter, Spurned, Borderline-Psychotic Dumpee (if there’s such a show, and if not, what an idea), so my understanding and ability to process the information and translate it into a cogent explanation of what exactly is going on in this topsy-turvy, soap opera-esque situation may come up a bit short.

But what matters is this: Matt Leinart’s still got it!

No, not a chance of becoming a legitimate NFL quarterback — or even a below-average backup NFL quarterback, for that matter — those days are far behind him. What I meant was he remains more than capable of demonstrating his still-supreme lady-killing ability.

Apparently, Emily Maynard, who was the most recent bachelorette on The Bachelorette (I think, I ain’t going to check), apparently was caught red-fingered exchanging explicit text messages with an unidentified man, causing a big fight with fiancé Jef Holm, whom I gather she “picked” on the show.

Still with me? Good.

Now rumors are surfacing that the guy Maynard was stepping out with in her text messaging tryst was none other than Oakland Raiders quarterback Mat Leinart. You dog, Mat! And to be honest, I didn’t even know he was on the Raiders roster. The more you know…

Via US Weekly:

The texter on the other end? Hunky Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Leinart, 29, a source confirms in the latest issue of Us Weekly, out now.

Indeed, Holm had a heart-to-heart with ex Kaylee Shepherd about the incident. “He said the story was 100 percent accurate,” Shepherd, 21, tells Us. “When she put her phone down, [Jef] picked it up and read through everything. . . Jef said, ‘It was that pro football guy . . . She strung me along and was talking to another guy the whole time!'”

Hunky, indeed! But who’s this Kaylee Shepherd and why is this guy confiding in his ex for? Man, I’ll never understand these reality shows. Not that I’m complaining.

But how about Matt Leinart? While his NFL career hasn’t gone as planned, he’s still out there, making the scene and stealing a reality show starlet away from her reality show partner. This calls for a beer bong!

Ah yes, good memories, but even better times.
