NBA star and volatile player Ron Artest has admitted to having Hennessy at halftime of several of his college and professional basketball games. The Hennessy he was speaking of, however, was not the alcoholic beverage bottled in France.
"It was actually Jill Hennessy, the star of Crossing Jordan," said Artest. "She was a big hoops fan and would come to the locker room at halftime whenever I was in Boston and she was filming her television show."
The actress denied her involvement in that way with the basketball star. "It must have be the cognac," she said. "Either that, or it was one of my castmates from Crossing Jordan. Maybe Jerry O'Connell?"
