Terrell Owens, impossibly taut at age 38, poses shirtless in the new GQ.

In addition to losing his shirt, he reveals that he lost nearly $80 million in career earnings. Now out of football and running out of money, he appears desperate.

When people text him to ask where he is these days, Owens replies back: "I'm in hell." Sad to hear that anyone feels that way. But is it his own fault?

Terrell Owens Shirtless

Terrell Owens blames the media for not giving him a chance to rehab his injury, and blames agent Drew Rosenhaus for not protecting him from a bad business deal.

Owens earned around $80 million in his NFL career, but has found himself in deep financial trouble, despite never spending lavishly. How does that happen exactly?

It's not a matter of having lived too large, he insists. While he indeed racked up a few homes that milliond, the issue, he says, was being loyal and trusting to a fault.

Owens said financial advisers recommended by Rosenhaus lost his money in highly leveraged (some borderline illegal) ventures and the housing market collapse.

"I hate myself for letting this happen," Owens told GQ. "I believed that they had my back when they said, 'You take care of the football, and we'll do the rest.'"

"And in the end, they just basically stole from me."

It's a sad tale, but this is also a guy with four baby mamas and no job - can't blame your financial advisers for that - and whose brash self-absorption is unparalleled.

50 Cent reportedly won a $500,000 bet (!) on the Giants in the NFC Championship game. But that's only money. For the Super Bowl, he's making things really interesting.

After Tweeting throughout Sunday's nerve-wracking win ("just watched a $500,000 football game get on my level Chumps") 50 is uber-confident heading into February 5.

So much so that the rapper quickly accepted when a follower named MyBestAssets made him an offer regarding his hometown Giants and the New England Patriots:

50 Cent Bet

Fiddy is betting something a little different this time around.

It's unclear who MyBestAssets is, what those assets are, and what the extent of her relationship with Chelsea Handler's ex is. But she's apparently a Pats fan.

"Lets bet. If the Giants lose the Superbowl, u must post ur d*ck on the twitter. If they win, I'll post my boobs & face. Bet?" she wrote. 50 quickly went all in on that.

"Ok It's a bet. See your d*ck on twitter Feb 5. Lol" she wrote.

LOL indeed. This is definitely the most unusual wager we've heard of, which is saying something, as certain THG staff members have bet on the coin toss. The coin toss.

Anyway, let's go Giants. We really don't need to see that.

After 17 years, all with the New York Yankees, 275 homers, 1,065 RBI, a .273 batting average, five All-Star selections and five championship rings, Jorge Posada made his retirement official last night.

The catcher sat a podium in front of reporters and now-former teammates - including Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and C. C. Sabathia - and said he knew in his "heart and head," before last season was over, that he was going to call it quits.

“I want to thank my teammates throughout the years,” Posada said, choking back tears, “especially Derek Jeter, who helped me stay focused and positive. Thank you, buddy.”

Posada is a borderline Hall of Fame candidate who will surely have his number retired by the Yankees. He added that various teams had contacted his agent and he likely could have latched on somewhere, but it was never really an option.

“Playing for the New York Yankees has been an honor,” he said. “I could never wear another uniform.”

Congratulating the Boston Bruins on the 2011 Stanley Cup championship, President Barack Obama welcomed the team, with one notable omission, to the White House.

Goaltender Tim Thomas, the team's linchpin and only the second American player ever to win playoff MVP, having posted two shutouts in the Final, skipped the event.

Thomas said months ago he would not attend due to political and ideological differences with the Obama administration, and he stayed true to his word yesterday.

Bruins, Obama

Bruins team president Cam Neely said he could've forced Tim Thomas to go, but did not do so, and feels the decision was Thomas' and the team honors his choice.

"Everybody has their own opinions and political beliefs. He chose not to join us," said Neely. "We certainly would have liked to have him but that's his choice."

"All the guys came except for Tim. It's his decision and his choice."

The 49ers fell to the Giants yesterday in the NFC Championship Game and - like Billy Cundiff on the Ravens - most of the blame lies at the feet of one player: Kyle Williams, who turned the ball over TWICE on punt returns, including one fumble that led to an easy New York field goal in overtime.

Williams has taken responsibility for the mishaps, but that isn't enough for some crazed fans.

Many have taken to Twitter and issued death threat against the little-used wide receiver, who was only pressed in to duty due to an injury.

"It certainly makes you question our culture of sports as it stands," said Kyle's dad, Chicago White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams, while kicker David Akers also stood up for his teammate:

"I'm irritated with the way people are treating him, absolutely. I think it's ridiculous. You know, get a grip on what life's about. He went out and he put his soul out there. That's what he does. He was not trying to do anything other than make an incredible play for this team."

We agree. And fans ought to be thanking Williams for helping to set up a Giants/Patriots Super Bowl. It's gonna be epic!

Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff was the goat Sunday after his missed field goal cost the team a chance to tie the AFC Championship Game in the waning moments.

An All-Pro attempting a 32-yarder should be a gimme, but Cundiff missed badly, sending the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl and leaving fans wondering what happened.

There have been reports that Billy was distracted beforehand - to the point that coaches were yelling at him - and wasn't ready to get in the game in until the last second.

You can see him running onto the field just before kicking:

Kickers usually walk toward the field as their opportunities become apparent, but as the Ravens marched down the field, was Cundiff unaware he was about to be called on?

Sources say players and coaches repeatedly called for Cundiff and were infuriated he wasn't ready sooner, although none have gone on record with this publicly.

It's unclear the effect this had on the kicker, or whether the Ravens would have gone on to win in overtime, of course (this would have only tied the game at 23).

What's quite clear is that whatever happened, Cundiff will likely be thinking about it for some time. He should give the 49ers' Kenny Williams a call this week ...

Jerry Sandusky - the disgraced former Penn State assistant whose alleged, despicable actions led to a cover-up that will forever tarnish Joe Paterno's legacy - has issued a statement on the passing of the iconic football coach.

RIP Paterno

"This is a sad day!" Sandusky said, exclamation mark included. "Our family, Dottie [Sandusky's wife] and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to Sue [Paterno] and her family. Nobody will be able to take away the memories we all shared of a great man, his family, and all the wonderful people who were a part of his life.

"He maintained a high standard in a very difficult profession. Joe preached toughness, hard work and clean competition. Most importantly, he had the courage to practice what he preached."

Sandusky, of course, faces over 40 counts of child sex charges; while the inability of Paterno and other Penn State officials to report their knowledge of Sandusky's actions to the police has led to the biggest scandal in the history of college athletics.

It was only a matter of time.

Mere weeks after Vanessa Bryant became one of the NBA's most famous ex-wives, she has become the Holy Grail for producers of VH1's misnamed Basketball Wives.

The people behind the show are prepping to make Kobe's ex-wife an offer she can't refuse, with sources say "an extremely lucrative pitch for Vanessa" is imminent.

As one source put it, they will do whatever it takes to get her, since, “Vanessa has more than enough storyline and would bring the show to another level.”

Vanessa Bryant, Kobe

Producers never dreamed of approaching Vanessa Bryant while she was married to the L.A. Lakers superstar, who she recently left due to Kobe's repeated cheating.

Budget constraints were also an issue when the show was in its infancy, but with Wives pulling in big ratings for VH1, and Vanessa single, times have changed!

Sources say producers would instantly make her the LEAD star the show or spin off an L.A. version with her as the centerpiece. We're not buying it, though.

First of all, Vanessa scored $75 million in their divorce. VH1 isn't going to woo her with money, in other words, and it's unclear if she wants to be a fame whore.

Even if she does, we doubt Kobe will agree to have his daughters on the program, which could be a tough workaround as Vanessa will have primary custody.

Unlike Steven Tyler's national anthem performance at the AFC Championship Game, no one will be debating whether or not Kristin Chenoweth killed hers a few hours later.

How that voice projects from a woman not even five feet tall is amazing.

The Broadway star and actress, who will soon take her talents to ABC's new show GCB, took the field before the NFC Championship Game in San Francisco, California.

The New York Giants prevailed in overtime, 20-17, to advance to the Super Bowl. Watch Kristin honor America with a terrific rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" below ...

Kristin Cavallari is expecting her first child, the reality star herself confirms!

"We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together," she and her fiance, NFL star Jay Cutler, said in a joint statement. "It's an amazing time in our life and we can't wait to meet the new addition to our growing family."

Last year was an up-and-down one for the Kristin 25, and Jay, 28, who got engaged, broke up, then got back together and soon got engaged a second time.

The former Hills star and Dancing with the Stars contestant said, "Sometimes, in order for things to get better, they have to end – even if it's momentarily."

Looks like it did wonders for the couple.

Shortly after their split, they became happier than ever it seems, with Jay dutifully attending her DWTS performances and she his Chicago Bears games.

Congratulations to the expectant pair!
