MTV VJ Kennedy Almost Lost Her Virginity To Michael Jordan (VIDEO)

In the mid 1990s, Kennedy was an MTV VJ at the center of pop culture. But despite her proximity to the extravagant world of rock 'n roll, she was a 22-year-old virgin -- until the biggest sports star on the planet tried to change that.

None other than Michael Jordan nearly took Kennedy's virginity during a night of partying in New York in the mid '90s, she told HuffPost Live's Ahmed Shibab-Eldin as the pair discussed her new book, "The Kennedy Chronicles: The Golden Age of MTV Through Rose-Colored Glasses."

Kennedy said she "had not yet punched the V-card" when the opportunity arose to get intimate with the Chicago Bulls superstar.

"Michael Jordan and I were playing dice one night at a very trendy bar in Lower Manhattan, and I was losing a little bit," Kennedy said. "I was worried that I was going to have to give him money. I didn't even think about the vajayjay for the MJ."

Expecting that Jordan would take the victory, Kenendy asked him what the wager on their game would be.

"He said, 'Baby, if I win, you come with me to my hotel room,'" she said. "And he said, 'But if you win, you can have Nets tickets."

The game took a turn and Kennedy ended up pulling off a win, so she took the Nets tickets instead of a trip to Jordan's room.

But that outcome was a bit of a relief. If she had slept with a 6-foot-6 basketball player, she joked, "I knew there would be hemorrhaging in my near future."
