For a guy who was rumored to be gay, Mike Piazza sure doesn’t have any trouble with women. He married playboy model Alicia Rickter in January 2005. Rickter is an actress, in the loosest sense of the word, having appeared in Baywatch Hawaii and The Young and the Restless, and several Playboy videos.alicia-rickter.jpg

But less you think Rickter is a one dimensional dame, she also confesses an burning desire to paint. From wikipedia:

“Art has always been my true love. I really enjoy painting. It can be a very stimulating and sexy activity. One of these days I’d like to go to an art museum and see one of my own works exhibited.”

Rickter should be happy now that her husband has signed with the Oakland A’s. She’s a big fan of the ocean, as anyone who’s seen the DVD Shannon Tweed’s Celebrity Playboy Centerfold can attest:

Mr. and Mrs. Piazza

“The beach is romantic and relaxing place to be. I was born and raised in Long Beach, California, so I feel very close to the sea. Fun and sun in the ocean breeze, who could ask for anything more?”

As for Piazza, I don’t know if he’s a beach guy or a skiing guy. But I know he’s got a thing for bunnies. Before he dated Rickter, he was shacking up with Darlene Bernaola, who along with her sister Carol were chosen as the Millenium Playmates.

How does Piazza do it? I can only assume very well and very often.
