Pete Rose Newsbeat
Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Wouldn’t mind seeing her bust in Cooperstown some day.
For nearly three decades, Morganna Roberts, known as the “Kissing Bandit,” ran onto baseball fields and arena floors with her buxom features on display. She famously kissed stars such as Pete Rose, George Brett and Nolan Ryan, becoming MLB’s unofficial mascot and bringing levity to the game. But despite her willingness to flaunt her 60-inched chest and embrace celebrity on late-night shows with Johnny Carson and David Letterman, little is known about Morganna and how she rose to fame. And in a society where celebrities never vanish — see The Apprentice or Dancing With The Stars — why did Morganna just disappear? That’s the mystery of Morganna.

“Felons and Melons” was better.
it looks like TLC will not be airing a second season of Pete Rose’s reality show, “Pete Rose: Hits & Mrs.”
John Kiesewetter, who writes about television for the Cincinnati Enquirer, notes that TLC aired the final two episodes of the first season on a Sunday morning and shifted it to a channel called Destination America… a representative for TLC told Kiesewetter that there are no plans to air repeats of the first season.

On the six-episode “Hits & Mrs.,” premiering Jan. 14, we see the life that Rose, [Kiana] Kim, and her two children — daughter Cassie, 14, and son Ashton, 11 — have built together, and get glimpses of their lives that include their dining with Kim’s parents, and Rose’s awkward relationship with the sport of baseball.
While Rose says he’s come to terms with his ineligibility for the Hall (even as he considers re-applying for reinstatement), it’s apparent that the ban has had a tremendous effect on his life.
“I wouldn’t wanna go into the Hall and make anyone who runs it feel uncomfortable,” says Rose, who is also banned from taking any official Major League Baseball-related job, or even entering a major league ballpark in any official capacity.
“But when Kiana goes in and tells me I have 15 artifacts in [the Hall of Fame], that’s great for people to see.
“But I’d rather have a plaque.”
