TERRELL OWENS isn't playing football at the moment. But the former Eagles wide receiver may be keeping busy playing with himself.
On Tuesday we spoke with a woman who showed us several photos of Owens she says were taken via video chat service Skype while he apparently masturbated in front of her. The woman, who is 27 and asked not to be identified, spent Tuesday trying to sell the photos to TMZ and other celebrity media outlets. The Daily News does not purchase such material.
T.O.'s Skype buddy said she met him on Twitter when she complimented his appearance and they began direct-messaging there before moving to Skype.
During their first Skype encounter, the woman claims, Owens was already naked and erect when the video call began. She estimates watching Owens pleasure himself on 10 separate occasions during which she denies exposing herself or talking dirty.
She says Owens would "tell me things he wanted to do to me."
We asked why she was trying to sell the pictures and brief video clip, and it turns out it's because Owens stopped responding to her on Skype, she says.
"He was getting back with his girlfriend and sent a few replies like, 'Who is this? I don't know you,'" she said. "The money is a bonus, but he needs to know not to do stuff like this."
"It's obvious that she has nothing because it's illegal with what she's trying to do or otherwise TMZ would have bought the photos," Owens told us by email Tuesday.
"This is a case of extortion, this is a waste of my time and you're wasting your time because I have nothing to say," Owens said.
When we responded by sending him two pictures from the woman, he did not deny that it was him in the photographs.
The email address of the woman selling the pictures matches an email address used by an escort in the Seattle/Portland area.
When asked if she is an escort, the would-be seller said she lives in the South, and used a friend's email address to contact us. We asked if her friend is an escort in the Portland/Seattle area and she said, "I think she is."
To be clear, the woman maintains she has never met Owens in person.
El Wingador is a free man. For now.
The five-time champ of Sportsradio 94WIP's Wing Bowl posted bond Monday, having spent 10 days in jail after being arrested June 15 for allegedly distributing cocaine. Wingador a/k/a Bill Simmons, 50, of Woodbury Heights, N.J., did not return a request for comment Tuesday but we caught up with his attorney David Bahuriak. The case is now pending a grand jury indictment, Bahuriak says. He expects this will come in "months, not days." Bahuriak says he and his client will "wait to see what the evidence looks like. If the evidence shows what they say the evidence is going to show, then Bill is the kind of guy who would take responsibility for his actions."
Bahuriak maintains that Simmons, who police said was stopped with 5 ounces of uncut cocaine with an estimated value of $8,000 and $4,000 in cash, is believed only to have been transporting drugs from one person to another.
You'd think the dealers would pick a guy with a more inconspicuous ride than a Kia Soul wrapped in El Wingador banners.
Jeff Carter, of the Stanley Cup-winning Los Angeles Kings, drank Bud Lights for a few hours Tuesday afternoon at the Carousel in Sea Isle City, where the former Flyers center owns a home. Carter spoke with a few fans about the Stanley Cup, which he says he'll take home to Canada when he gets to spend time with the trophy, which the whole Kings squad gets to do.
NBC10 has hired Keith Jones as its new morning news anchor.
Jones, not to be confused with the former Flyer turned WIP co-host and hockey broadcaster, is a Villanova graduate and former intern at the station.
He last worked at the ABC affiliate in Pittsburgh.
Jones will co-anchor NBC10 News Today from 4:30 to 7 weekdays with Lori Wilson.
Oddly, another Keith Jones was just hired as a morning anchor at the NBC station in Miami.
