The Steve Phillips sex scandal has become a big story and the public has become interested in all things Steve Phillips — including his girlfriend. But when one looks for Steve Phillips’ girlfriend (and her photos), one has to then be more specific. Is the Steve Phillips girlfriend being searched for the last girlfriend and the one that the current scandal is about, Brooke Hundley? Or is the search concerning the girlfriend he had in the late ’90s while working for the New York Mets, Rita Rodriguez? Or what about other girlfriends he admitted to having while working as a General Manager for the New York Mets, a job he held until 2003? Just which Steve Phillips girlfriend is of interest?
Perhaps one is searching for the most recent Steve Phillips girlfriend, considering that the scandal of their affair and Brooke Hundley’s subsequent alleged harassment of Steve Phillips’ family is dominating the news of late. That particular girlfriend is 22 years old. She, like Steve Phillips, is employed by ESPN. She is a production assistant. They met over the summer, had an affair, and after he broke off the relationship, she began allegedly stalking and harassing his family. In a police statement, Phillips called Brooke Hundley “obsessive and delusional.”
Police reports indicate that Brooke Hundley made harassing phone calls to Marni Phillips, Steve Phillips’ wife. She also sent texts and left ominous voice mails, telling Marni Phillips that both of them could not have him. Hundley took it upon herself to write an expository letter and hand-delivered it to the Phillips home. When Marni Phillips surprised her in the driveway, Hundley put her car in reverse by mistake and ran into the stone column of the house. The letter was stuck in the door and described the sexual relationship between herself and Steve Phillips. It is alleged that the jilted girlfriend even posed as a teen classmate of the Phillips’ teen son to obtain private information via the internet.
Steve Phillips admitted to having a string of affairs while he was with the New York Mets as their General Manager. He held the position from 1997-2003. Thus far, information about separate girlfriends have not as yet been disclosed, so…
That leaves the girlfriend from the scandal that occurred in the late 90s, Rita Rodriquez, who was also employed by the New York Mets at the time. Steve Phillips admitted to having sex with her and Rita Rodriguez sued Phillips for sexual harassment in 1998. The case was settled out of court. Phillips would later take a leave of absence from the baseball team.
The Steve Phillips / Brooke Hundley scandal has not occurred without repercussions, either. ESPN has suspended him for at least a week for the sports analyst’s embarrassing behavior. Marni Phillips has filed for divorce, having lived through the previous sex scandal with Rita Rodriguez and the “obsessive and delusional” behavior of Brooke Hundley.
Just remember: when searching for “Steve Phillips girlfriend,” remember there are more than one…
