A new book hitting store shelves next week claims former Miami Heat star Glen Rice and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had a one-night stand back in 1987, when she was a television sports reporter and he was a junior at the University of Michigan.
The National Enquirer is reporting that Palin, a former high school basketball standout herself, hooked up with Rice in 1987 when Rice and the Wolverines was in Anchorage, Alaska, for a college basketball tournament.
When the alleged tryst happened, Palin was nine months from being married, just out of college and working as a sports reporter at Anchorage TV station KTUU. The book claims Palin had an African-American fetish at the time, and that Rice confirmed the existence of the affair.
The tabloid’s claims are sourced from the about-to-be-released book by investigative reporter Joe McGinnis, a reporter who rented a house next door to the Palins to research and write his book. McGinniss figures prominently in an episode of her recent reality television show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, where she complains about him as a neighbor, and says of his interest in her life: “it’s just none of his flippin’ business.”
Not sure if the comment included a wink and a “you betcha.”
McGinniss’s tome “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” is set to drop September 20th. The book also claims Palin snorted cocaine and cheated on her husband Todd.
“On a clear day you can see political career death from my house!”
