When tennis players blog: Not only do they play a sport professionally (a dream for many of us) and make millions, they now want to act, model, and blog. Exhibit A: Serena "ReRe" Williams. Following in sister Venus' recently heralded turn at the blogosphere, ReRe is spilling her beans on everything from "jerk offs" who don't call back to her missing/stolen blackberry.
According to her website, the former No. 1 was visiting Paris and dropped by the FENDI store to check out these "fabulous boots" and use the ladies' room. We'll let ReRe tell the rest:
"I saw some fabulous boots there that I thought would go great in my fall repertoire. Well I also had to use the bathroom really bad... so the driver dropped me and my friend *Paul off at the corner and we walked to the FENDI store. I asked the employee if I could use the bathroom. I went to the bathroom with my purse and came out and looked at a dress. I never set my purse down I just was holding it. Later I tried on the boots and put my purse down. I liked the boots so I decided to buy them. I picked up my purse and noticed my blackberry was missing."
The 8-time Grand Slam champion goes on to say:
"I feel raw and alone now that I don't have my bb. My bb is out there all alone cold and scared. She had a great life a warm bed and a wonderful mom that took great care of her. I wish I could just see her one more time. I did not even get chance to say goodbye."
Has she lost her marbles? We understand sport celebrities have a tendency to live in an insular world, but this smells of straight-up crazy. Maybe the blackberry ran for it's life - a more grounded life than what ReRe seems to have...
