Steve Phillips : Production Assistant

THE FROLIC: A well-known sports celebrity recently checked out of a secluded sex addiction clinic. And no, it’s wasn’t Tiger Woods. Former ESPN analyst Steve Phillips is busy picking up the pieces after a tryst with a production assistant wrecked his career and nearly destroyed his marriage. Phillips had hoped his alleged three-night stand in July 2009 would fly under the radar, but 22-year-old Brooke Hundley was a bit more smitten. After Phillips cut her off, she allegedly cyberstalked his son on Facebook and harassed his wife with calls and a letter, describing Phillips’ birthmarks and details of the dalliance. The cable giant initially suspended the baseball expert but decided to fire both parties after the scandal went public. Phillips immediately entered the same Mississippi clinic as Woods to get therapy.

THE FALLOUT: After spending a month and a half in sex rehab, Philips immediately hit the airwaves on damage control, publicly apologizing on The Today Show and vowing to save his marriage. If he’s successful, it won’t be the first time his wife has forgiven his flings. He admitted to having extramarital affairs with several women during his stint as the Mets general manager (1997-2003) and was threatened with a sexual harassment lawsuit in 1998. He hasn’t said whether he’ll return to broadcasting. ESPN made no public statement regarding the issue.
