Lovely Lady Of The Day

A million of you (approximately) have written in to ask why I haven't mentioned the "big" news that Hot Clicks favorite Jaime Edmondson
is dating Rays third baseman Evan Longoria
. Here's the full story. I knew they were dating a few months ago, but Edmondson would only confirm that off
the record to me and asked that I not "break" the news in Hot Clicks. When Edmondson posted a picture of them together on Twitter last week
, I asked her again if she would confirm things on the record, so I could write about it in Hot Clicks, but she didn't want to. However, a couple of days later, Longoria gave confirmation to a reporter at spring training and now you guys are flooding my inbox.
I e-mailed Edmondson to get her take and this is what she had to say.
"I can't believe how crazy this has been. It was on the news in Port Charlotte [where the Rays have spring training] and on the front page of the sports page. I'm mostly amused at how everyone is acting like this is breaking news. It's old news to us considering we met a while ago. It's not like it was a secret. Other than you, no one else had asked us about it until now. I remember sitting next to him in the car when he was taping your podcast
(which reminds me, you still haven't invited me to be a guest on your podcast!) and you sending me a message asking if you can write something about us in Hot Clicks. I guess people were bound to catch on eventually, but I do appreciate you keeping it between us for as long as you did! By the way, maybe you can hook me up and make me the LLOD, for old times sake!"
Not only is Edmondson
today's Lovely Lady of the Day
, but she will be on the Hot Clicks Podcast next week, so stay tuned for that.
