Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb blew up the internet yesterday for (1.) being incredibly hot, and (2.) getting pretty aggressively crushed on by ESPN commentator Brent Musberger during Monday night’s BSC Title game. The veteran broadcaster came under fire for singling the lovely Ms. Webb out, and has generally been made out to be a bit of a dirty old man. But now Katherine is coming to Brent’s aid, defending him during an appearance on NBC’s Today Show this morning.
“I think the media’s been unfair to him,” she said during an interview with Matt Lauer. “If he would have said something along the lines of we were hot or sexy or made any derogatory statements like that, I think it would have been a little bit different. The fact he said we were both beautiful and gorgeous, I don’t see why any woman wouldn’t be flattered by that. So, I think that they’ve been unfair to him.” Beautiful and gracious: A.J. is a lucky man.
Things are getting even better for the former Miss Tennessee. Miss America baron Donald Trump is apparently going to ask her to get involved with the iconic Atlantic City event this year. “We are going to ask Katherine Webb to be a judge at the Miss USA Pageant coming up in Las Vegas,” he tweeted today. But it probably got lost in the shuffle of her Twitter feed. Her followers jumped from just over 2000 to over 234,000 in two days!
