Say goodbye to 2010 and hello to 2011! As we countdown the hours to a new year, I’d like to take a moment to countdown some of the individuals who have made a site like Baller Alert possible. So here you have it, In no particular order…
Baller Alert’s Top 10 Gold Diggers & Groupies Of All Time
Anna Nicole Smith: May she rest in peace, but a Gold Diggers list wouldn’t be exist without her. Anna Nicole’s story is definitely one that glorifies groupie success. A Young Anna married an 89 year old millionaire with whom she met while striping in Houston, TX. After only months of marriage, he dies, leaving Anna $450 million, which after legal battles with his family was reduced down to $100 million. If only Gold Diggers of today were so lucky!
Karrine Steffans: Karrine “Superhead” Steffans wrote the book on being a groupie, literally! Getting her start as a video vixen Karrine used her sex skills to take rappers and athletes to bed. When the video checks stopped coming in Superhead found a new hustle. Three kiss & tell best seller’s later, Karrine has written about everyone from Usher to Method Man. She even married Bill Maher & landed a spot on Oprah’s couch. How many groupies can say that? She’s definitely getting her money out of many in the entertainment industry!
Kevin Federaline: Leaving his wife, former Moesha co-star Shar Jackson for Brittany Spears has to be the biggest career move that Kevin could make. Before impregnating Brittany, Kevin was merely a backup dancer. Two kids, lots of publicity, a few reality shows and two crazy exes later, you can’t find Kevin anywhere! He may have gotten his 15 minutes of fame, but it didn’t last long.
Saleh Kazemi: If you don’t remember her, she is the young lady who killed Tennessee Titan’s, Steve McNair and then turned the gun on herself last year. McNair was having an affair with Kazemi. The two had been dating for several months but McNair rented a condo for her and even got her a car. No one knows what made Saleh Kazemi snap, but she definitely wasn’t trying to lose her baller. She shot him 4 times at close range as he laid on the couch of their rented condo.
Kat Stacks: A groupie list wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t throw in the Queen of 2010 Ho Sh-t, Kat Stacks. Katherine got her start when she launched a blog documenting the Z list celebrities that she bed. Only problem is, when these celebs wouldn’t pay for her taxi home, Kat flew into a rage and started releasing their phone numbers, addresses and personal secrets. No Z-lister was safe! Well, they can rest easy now because Kat Stacks is spending her New Years Eve in a detention facility awaiting possible deportation.
Elin Woods: Elin may have had her own career as a model, but we can’t pretend that she didn’t do her share of gold digging when she married golf super star, Tiger Woods. When news broke that Tiger was cheating, Elin was torn on whether to stay or not. Eventually deciding to leave, Elin didn’t hesitate to take her share. She left with the house, the kids, and half his earnings in toe!
Amber Rose: Looks like Yeezy taught her well! Amber worked as a stripper prior to snagging a heartbroken Kanye West who turned her into a real life Cinderella. Kanye introduced Amber to luxury living, exotic get-a-ways and designer clothes and all Amber had to do was keep her mouth closed and look cute. Well Amber Rose has definitely done that. So far she hasn’t said a bad thing about Kanye, and as long as she does, she remains on the payroll. Good girl!
Gabriel Aubry: Although it’s every man’s dream to date Halle Berry, this man is clearly Gold Digging. Not only is Gabriel the father of Halle’s first and only child, but he’s recently been seen kanoodling with Kim Kardashian after splitting with Miss Berry. If he’s not in it for the money he’s definitely in it for the attention. Luckily Halle didn’t have him put a ring on it or she’d be stuck with the loser!
Ivana Trump: Prime example that gold digging transcends all ages, Ivana Trump definitely goes down in the record books for being the queen of sticking a man for what he’s got. Although she’s no longer married to Donald Trump, she made out of the divorce with fat pockets. $20million dollars and she can still call herself a Trump. Can’t be mad at that! Funny thing about it is now Ivana is married to her very own 35 year old gold digger. Funny how that happens!
Vanessa Bryant: Do we honestly think Vanessa was upset when she heard the news that her husband, Kobe Bryant was sleeping around with cheerleaders? Not one bit! You know why? Because she was showered with gifts, including a huge diamond rock, just to appease her. Vanessa definitely knew what she was doing when she got with her Laker boy, and knows exactly what she’s doing by staying (including being that annoying wife that’s first to the court when the Lakers win a championship game)
