Dwayne Wade’s Mothers Day Gift May 19, 2008

Filed under: Sports Nuts — gervmaine @ 5:53 pm

Well, this puts my bouquet of flowers to shame; Dwayne Wade bought his mom a church for Mother’s Day. (Show off.) No, I kid, it’s a great story. D-Wade’s mom Jolinda turned her drug addicted life around seven years ago when, after years of urging by her children, she got help and got clean. Along the way, she devoted her life to spreading the word of God, starting her first ministry while in prison. And now, thanks to her son, she’s got her own — Temple of Praise. And now, thanks to Wade, I feel horrible for passing on that extra bed of baby’s breath. (Sorry, mom.)

Dwyane Wade on Star Jones rumors: We’re just friends


Dwyane Wade has finally spoken up about his alleged romance with Star Jones: “Star is an unbelievable woman. We have a great, great relationship. As friends.”

“We’re friends, just like a lot of celebrities. We are friends,” the pro basketball star said Thursday during a guest appearance on “Inside the NBA,” the jocular TNT show featuring Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson.

“Are y’all close friends?” Smith asked.

“We’re good friends,” Wade responded.

“Are you the kind of friends that drink out of one cup with two straws?” Smith persisted, referring to a much-discussed photo of Wade, 26, and Jones, the 46-year-old TV personality who recently filed for divorce, at a tennis match. “Those kind of friends?”

“We are friends. That’s all,” said Wade, who is married to his high school sweetheart and has two sons.

“Good friends?” Barkley interjected.

“Naw, Chuck,” Wade said with a smile.

Some hilarity ensued. Barkley broke through the commotion to say, “I like Star. She’s a cougar.”

“What’s a cougar?” Smith asked, not so innocently, a perfect lob to Barkley.

Sir Charles promptly slammed the ball home: “Preying on a young Dwyane Wade.”

Representatives for Jones did not immediately return a call for comment Thursday night


Say It Ain’t So: Dwayne Wade Dating Star Jones? May 2, 2008

According to various reports, Star Jones – one day removed from announcing her divorce from Al Reynolds – is dating NBA superstar Dwyane Wade. This rumor leaves us speechless, likely because there’s too much vomit creeping into our mouths, making it impossible to put words together.

Star Jones and Dwyane Wade

We shudder at the thought: Star Jones and Dwyane Wade, seen here at a recent tennis match, are dating.

We know Wade’s Miami Heat had an awful 2007-2008 season, but doesn’t Dwyane realize that he’s better than this? That his dating life needn’t reflect his team’s performance on the court? That Star Jones is an ugly media whore? That he lives in Miami, the nation’s hub for bikini-clad women?

We haven’t seen this mismatched of a couple since that apple dated that orange. Or Jason Wahler dated Lauren Conrad. Scumbag.
