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."
