The national crush on quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb just will not go away! Only two weeks after shooting to viral super-stardom, the former Miss Alabama has been fielding offers left and right for various TV gigs. Last week she accepted a spot as an Inside Edition Super Bowl commentator, and now she’s signed on for a slightly less illustrious job: Appearing on a new Celebrity Diving series on ABC. A celeb wha? Apparently the show is exactly what it sounds like. “Celebrities” will appear on camera leaping from tall places into water. Presumably they will all be in bathing suits, so we guess the program does have something going for it. Other familiar faces to appear on the show will include ex-Baywatch babe Nicole Eggert, former Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson, Drake Bell, basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and…Louie Anderson, who will single-handedly cancel out any and all bikini hotness that may arise on the program.
It’s kind of a surprising move for Webb to join the cast, considering her vow to be “the anti-Kardashian.” Apparently the media glare also put a strain on her relationship with A.J. McCarron, who felt that all the attention on his girlfriend stole the glory from his BSC Title victory. She had previously placed herself under a self imposed media ban, but we guess that’s coming to a rapid end. According to TMZ, she has now hired a publicist to deal with her many bookings, and will live out her 15 minutes of fame via reality shows, special one-off TV events and hot Twitter pics. Just like a certain K-family that we all know and love…
A.J. himself has also done a pretty extreme about-face, now fully supporting his GF’s career as a famous attractive person with the remarkable ability to wear skimpy outfits, let gravity do its thing, and fall into a pool. We’re not sure if it’s a change of heart, or if he hears the cash box jangling. But with college football season over, it’s a pretty good way to keep his face in the news until fall!
