Jessica Simpson is back in sports news – and this time, her story doesn’t involve wearing a pink Cowboys jersey or being a distraction for Tony Romo.  In the latest edition of “Wife Wire”, we highlight some of the most recent beautiful women to find their way into sports headlines – and how each tie in.

WIFE WIRE: November 14, 2010

Wire 1: Jessica Simpson

Status: Engaged – Future Wife in Sports

As previously mentioned, Jessica Simpson is back in sports headlines – but this time it’s the announcement of her engagement to Eric Johnson.

The key here – no one can point out that Simpson cursed Johnson – as she apparently had done with the Cowboys and former boyfriend Tony Romo.  This time around, Johnson was already out of football.  The former San Francisco and New Orleans tight end was released by the Saints back in 2008 – well before the two began dating.

Wire 2: Brittny Gastineau

Status: Girlfriend –but Phelps should refer to her as “THE WIFE”

The very sexy Brittny Gastineau – daughter of former New York Jets headliner Mark Gastineau – is in sports headlines, as reports emerged from TMZ that she is currently datilng Olympic swimmer and gold medalist Michael Phelps.

For those that are unfamiliar with Gastineau, over the last few years she has had a modeling career as well as making multiple appearances on reality TV shows – most notably a hit show on E! called Gastineau Girls – which covered both Brittny and her mother, Lisa.

She’s also quite striking.

Wire 3: Karina Smirnoff

Status: Engaged – Future Wife in Sports

Dancing With the Stars regular Karina Smirnoff told People last week that she is engaged to Major League Baseball starting pitcher Brad Penny.

Penny recently hasn’t been hitting the strike zone as often as during past seasons.  However, the 32-year old free agent certainly scored with this news.

Wire 4: Roberta Mancino

Status: In Sports – Skydiver

Men’s Fitness has recently named its hottest female athlete – and the winner is Italian skydiver Roberta Mancino.
