Katrina Cam Pins, the leggy Miami real estate exec from Donald Trump's The Apprentice, is making the move from the boardroom to the sidelines. The 24-year-old football fanatic, who counts several NFL players as clients, is embarking on a second career as a lighthearted reporter for ESPN2. "To be able to integrate my love for the camera with my love for sports is a great marriage," says Campins (below). She made her debut covering last month's NFL draft for the morning show Cold Pizza, quizzing Iowa offensive lineman Robert Gallery on his monthly food bill and asking Miami ( Ohio) quarterback Ben Roethlisberger how he plans to stave off women in the pros. The show's producers were so impressed that they offered her a weekly segment in which she'll cover events, including NFL training camp. "People like her, and the camera likes her," says producer Brian Donlon. "She's a natural."
?The Pistons are ho right now, but 10 Detroit fans froze their tails of last Thursday in an Ice the Lakers contest. With a pair of tickets to the night's 88-68 rout of L.A. at stake, nine women and one man sat on blocks of ice for 93 minutes in downtown Detroit wearing only thongs. (The contest was sponsored by radio station 93.1, WDRQ.) With doctors continuously cir cling to check for frostbite, all 10 contestant made it to the end, so two names were drawn to receive the ducats. "It really wasn't that bad because your cheeks just kind of go numb after the first five minutes," says one winner, Paula Gill, 25, who entered the contest so she could bring her father to the game. "My dad was skeptical, though. He said I was never going to make it since I start complaining if it gets a little cold in the house."
?Saying, "Little chickens need a big man like Dale to stick up for them," actress and PETA spokesperson Pamela Anderson is calling on Dale Earnhardt Jr. to urge KFC to adopt more humane killing practices. After Junior recently signed a sponsorship deal with the restaurant chain, Anderson sent him a letter that began, "Greetings from an admirer." Don't expect Earnhardt to rock the boat, however. KFC has put his face on limited-edition commemorative buckets of chicken, making him the first person other than Colonel Sanders to grace a KFC bucket.
?When Jimmy Kimmel picks a vacation spot he should probably avoid Motown. At halftime of Game 2 of the NBA Finals on June 8, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host told ABC's Mike Tirico, "They're going to burn Detroit down if the Pistons win, and it's not worth it." Kimmel quickly issued an apology, joking, "We in LA have taken a commanding lead in postgame riots. If the Lakers win I plan to overturn my own car." Kimmel's show was pulled the next night and, ironically, when Kimmel returned to the airwaves last Friday, his first guest was Detroit native Chris Webber, who presented Kimmel with a Pistons jersey and a Tigers hat. "I hope this is humiliation enough for me," Kimmel said, reluctantly donning the duds. "But I sincerely doubt it."...
