Stacy Keibler covers the June issue of Men’s Fitness. If that isn’t the weirdest thing, right? CB points out that for as long we’ve been e-subscribing to Men’s Fitness, since October, 2010, they’ve never had a female cover star. As for said cover… the image looks ridiculous. Like, Stacy has a GREAT body. Her body is insane. Her body is so good, I don’t think most people look at her face. But I’m trying to look at her face, and I can barely see it under the mound of Photoshop and hair. I really think they took her head from another photo and just superimposed it on the best “body shot.” Also: CB pointed out that Stacy looks so much like Kelly Preston on the cover. RIGHT? Remember, one of George Clooney’s original girlfriends, back in the 1980s, was Kelly Preston. Weird.

As for the cover article, the piece is called “The Coolest Hot Girl,” so you know it’s going to a bastion of journalistic integrity. To her credit, much is made about how unfussy Stacy is – she doesn’t travel with an entourage, she sits patiently while people mess around with her hair and makeup, she doesn’t complain, ever. Here are some highlights from the piece:

Becoming a Baltimore Raven cheerleader: “People came form all over the country for tryouts, and I just made the age requirements. I ended up being the baby of the NFL.”

Entering (and winning) a regional competition for the Nitro Girls (dancers for the World Championship Wrestling): “When I won, they said, ‘You start next week,’ but I was like, ‘Uh, I have all these things I’m doing.’ I was a cheerleader and in school, but everyone worked with me while I was making that transition, so I just decided to go for it.”

Learning about football: “For the first season, I was trying to figure out what the heck was going on, but I loved it so much that I spent time learning the game and asking questions. From the first season to the next one, I learned so much that in my second year, I didn’t even want to turn around and dance because I had a front-row seat to every game.”

Her current fitness regimen: “I don’t do it for my ego. And as far as how I look to everyone else? I just like to be toned, I like to be fit, and I like to feel good. I don’t want to look all jacked up. I just want to be healthy.”

What Stacy likes in a man: “I’m not really attracted to a big, jacked guy. I think that’s a little excessive. I’m attracted to moderation. Someone who just takes care of himself from the inside out.”

How can you win her heart? “A simple compliment goes a really long way – for a guy to just come over and say, ‘You have great hair’ or ‘I really like your dress,’ and then just smile and walk away. That’s a great move, because he’s sort of putting himself out there by doing that, but it won’t lead to any embarrassment if the girl isn’t interested. And if she is, she can go find him, because it’ll be like, ‘Wow, that was pretty cool.’”

Is anyone else surprised that she didn’t mention George Clooney whatsoever? I don’t know if the interviewer asked about Clooney and got denied, or if Stacy was allowed to demand “no Clooney questions” for this piece. Reading through the whole cover story, I did get the sinking feeling that perhaps Stacy is feathering her nest for a breakup that’s coming soon. Like, she probably gave this interview a month ago – after the Oscars, but around the time when Clooney went to DC (and he got arrested) and she was left to her own devices. And then this past weekend she was left behind again after she “got a job” that she apparently had to do on a Saturday night? Yeah… I do think this relationship is winding down. And I think Stacy is trying to be smart about it and prepare for her next chapter.
