Dan Gross: Penthouse Pet's Flyer fling

BERKS COUNTY porn starlet and Penthouse pet Gina Lynn slept with Flyers winger Scottie Upshall while married, her ex-husband Travis Knight has revealed on an Atlanta radio show.

BERKS COUNTY porn starlet and Penthouse pet Gina Lynn slept with Flyers winger Scottie Upshall while married, her ex-husband Travis Knight has revealed on the radio show of former 94WYSP host Kidd Chris now heard on Atlanta's Project 96.1.

Lynn and Knight, who still work together, were interviewed yesterday to promote her photo spread in the current issue of Penthouse, and the radio hosts asked Knight what famous guys Gina had slept with.

As Gina pleaded with Knight not to reveal her personal business, Knight said she had slept with a member of the Flyers.

"I have a ton of athletes constantly trying to be with me," Lynn said, before Knight mentioned Upshall, who now plays for the Florida Panthers.

"You're gonna get me in trouble. Oh, my God! I don't kiss and tell," an angry Lynn told Knight.

"I don't want hockey players anymore; I want Ivy League guys," Lynn said. "Why would it bother you over others?"

Knight said "it bugged me that he was supposed to be my boy." Then Lynn admitted the Upshall fling. "I just needed sex."

"You're being a jerk right now," Lynn told her former husband and porn co-star.

Contacted yesterday, Lynn had no comment on Knight's comments during the radio show.

Lynn, who we reported last week is on the cover of April's Penthouse, on newstands now, dances Friday and Saturday nights at the Penthouse Club (3001 Castor).

We were unable to reach Upshall yesterday through the Panthers. He is now dating TNT/ ESPN commentator Melanie Collins.

Pillow fights are boxing?

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office says it's investigating whether Damon Feldman, Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter, broke the law by staging recent girl-on-girl pillow fights in the wake of his conviction last year of promoting fights without a license and of fight-fixing charges.

Attorney general spokesman Nils Hagen-Frederiksen declined to elaborate on what penalty Feldman could face if the A.G. decides that the pillow fights, one of which recently featured Sandra Bullock's tattooed homewrecker, Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, count as fights.

Feldman, meanwhile, has been staging Celebrity Boxing events in other states, including Florida, where he will soon have a bout that will include former VH1 reality star Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, whose boyfriend, NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal, will serve as her cornerman.

"I think it's ridiculous to prevent me from doing anything in Pennsylvania," Feldman says.

"It's not boxing, it's pillows. It's so safe, the girls even wear headgear," said Feldman, who believes that state Athletic Commission Director Greg Sirb has it out for him. Sirb declined to comment.

Feldman has scheduled an April 13 pillow fight in Delaware County. Interested women can email him at celebrityboxing

Shatner steak-out

Ruth's Chris Steak House (260 S. Broad) stayed open late Tuesday to accommodate William Shatner. The actor was performing his one-man show, "Shatner's World," at the Merriam Theatre.

Shatner, accompanied by wife Elizabeth and his agent, went for a cowboy rib-eye steak and a chilled seafood platter and sipped bottles of Yuengling.

He took pictures with staff at the restaurant, which had a lot of business that night from Shatner's fans before the show.
