Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has enough to worry about as he enters his first season in the NFL. Now it looks like he has more thing to avoid besides the defenses that he’ll be facing on a weekly basis, since it looks like reality star Kim Kardashian is interested in him.
According to the executive producer and writer of 30 Rock, Jack Burditt, who recently appeared on The Rich Esien Podcast, Kardashian showed some interest in Griffin while they were both on his set.
Back in April, Kardashian was on the set of 30 Rock to be a part of the final episode and Griffin was there to watch the show being filmed just hours after being drafted by the Redskins.
“She sat next to me, while we were watching the show on the monitor,” Burditt said, “and RG3 is a few seats down, and during the commercial break, she starts asking me questions about him. Like, ‘Now, he’s a football player, right?’ I’m like, yeah, yeah. (Kim says,) ‘And he just … something big happened, right?’ I’m like, well, yeah, he just was the No. 2 overall pick tonight. (She asks) ‘And what team?’ … Washington. (She asks) ‘What’s Washington?’ … Redskins. She goes, ‘I don’t know much about football, but, so what’s his deal?’ And I’m thinking, ‘You stay away from him. This is a nice young man.’ ”
The interesting thing is that Griffin is engaged, which probably doesn’t matter to Kardashian.
