It’s baseball season and Howard Stern got into the swing of things by having baseball great Pete Rose and his beautiful girlfriend, Playboy model Kiana Kim, on his XM Sirius Satellite show Tuesday morning.Â So now everyone is looking for her pictures on the internet.Â The beautiful model’s picturesÂ can beÂ found just about anywhere a search engineÂ has access.Â
There was plenty of baseball talk — the 2010 season begins on April 4 — and Howard Stern questioned Pete Rose about his chances of being reinstated in Major League Baseball (Rose, baseball’s all-time hit leader, was suspended in 1989) in order to get into the Baseball Hall of Fame.Â Â But Howard Stern’s attention was equally on Kiana Kim.Â
Kiana Kim, 29, is 39 years Pete Rose’s junior, so he seems to still beÂ hitting above average.Â Â KimÂ is also gearing up for April.Â She will appear in the PlayboyÂ featureÂ “Sexy 100 of 2009.”Â (Perhaps Pete Rose is hitting way above average.)Â Â
Kiana Kim has a Bachelor’sÂ Degree in Business Marketing from Arizona State and she and PeteÂ RoseÂ Â have been dating since 1999.Â Thus far, marketing herself may be the only business she really needs to go into.Â
Given Howard Stern’s propensity for scheduling Playboy models, it might be safe to say that his interest in Pete Rose, whose fall from grace in baseball and attempts to regain eligibility have become a perennial baseballÂ debate and somewhat trite, was a ruse to get Kiana Kim on the show.Â Besides, having the real Playboy model in front of you is always better than the pictures.Â
Ask Pete Rose.
