Matt Harvey shares bawdy details of private life on talk show (vid)


New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey appeared on Bravo’s trashy gabfest talk show “Watch What Happens: Live” on Thursday night, during which he shared some racy details about his personal life, some of which involved some bawdy indiscretions concerning how his sex life once intersected with baseball.

Being peppered with provocative questions by Connie Chung alongside host Andy Cohen, Harvey admitted to using women’s deodorant and once participating in a salacious bedroom act.

Harvey perhaps wisely pleaded the fifth when asked about some very private clubhouse information regarding his teammates’ anatomy.

But perhaps the most outrageous thing Harvey copped to during the Q&A was when he admitted to once engaging in sexual relations on the mound of a baseball field while in college.

Interestingly, the Bravo talk show is the same one that Olivia Munn shared some intimate details about Aaron Rodgers.

On a more serious, baseball-related note, Chung asked Harvey if he regretted campaigning to return for the ninth inning of Game 5 of the World Series with the Mets leading the Kansas City Royals by a score of 2-0.

“Not for one second,” Harvey said.

After shutting down the Royals for eight shutout innings, Harvey convinced manager Terry Collins to bring him back for the ninth. Harvey surrendered one run and allowed the allowed the tying run to get on base, a run that eventually scored as the Royals ran away with the game for a World Series-clinching 7-2 victory.

When asked if he believed Collins now regrets the decision, Harvey said, “You’d have to ask him.”

But in the end, the most interesting — not to mention salacious — information was gleaned with some bawdy talk about Harvey’s life away from ballpark … and on it as well in at least one instance.
