One of the many awesome things about this site is that I never write about Barry Bonds.  However, I'm willing to break my silence when his former mistress and key witness in the case against Bonds, Kimberly Bell, agrees to a Playboy spread.

Bell said Bonds promised to give her $207,000 for a down payment on a house there but only gave her $80,000. She said that he instructed her to deposit the money in amounts of less than $10,000 to avoid having to report the money to the government.  [Bell's lawyer] said that Bell, through her appearance in Playboy, was finally getting the money she was promised.  "This is a payday she deserves and that Barry Bonds never got her," Schmidt said. "All she got from Bonds was being dumped and lied to."

Join the club, sugar.  Then there's this quote from the AP article:

Bell said the photo shoot boosted her confidence. "If I had more self-esteem when I was younger," she said, "I wouldn't have been caught up with such a rotten man."

And if she had more self-esteem now we wouldn't have to deal with a used-up 37-year-old in Playboy.  RAWR!  Seriously, Hugh Hefner must be rolling over in his grave.  No, I realize he's still alive.  But look at him.  He definitely sleeps in a grave.  It's just good practice for a guy his age.
