If reality bites, then Phillies outfielder Bobby Abreu needs a rabies shot.

Seems Abreu's fiancée — Alicia Machado, a former Miss Universe and Miss Venezuela — was filmed having sex with another man on "La Granja," a Mexican reality TV show, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.

Added the News' Marcus Hayes: "Abreu declined to comment on the matter, besides confirming that the relationship is over."

Wow, I might have to adjust the old satellite dish to receive the Mexican UPN, or whatever channel this show is on....

Wow, as bad as I dislike Abreu for constantly beating the Reds to death, I really feel bad for him. Infidelity is a very painful thing to deal with. I couldn't imagine having to share it with the world on a television show.

Actually, the show is filmed in Spain (got to love the U.S. press for not being able to differentiate between Spain and Mexico).

I googled around a bit after seeing this and it turns out, shockingly, that this news is more than a few days late and a few dollars short.

You can get more details if you scroll down this page:


Abreu said (in a Venezuelan newspaper on 5/10) they split up when Machado went to Spain to tape the show, figuring that an transoceanic relationship wasn't going to work.
