Molly Qerim is a patient woman. For over a year, the host of ESPN’s First Take has had to hold back laughter as Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless spew delusional takes. The 31-year-old New Haven, Connecticut native was formerly a sports anchor and reporter for the NFL Network and a host of the NFL Network’s weekday morning show, NFL AM , and NFL Fantasy Live. So not only is she a certified smoke pistol, she knows her shit. A double-headed monster, if you will. It appears that Molly has found a lover in NBA analyst and former Fab Fiver Jalen Rose. The 43-year-old Rose is no stranger to getting a bit flirty at the office, as you may remember a few years back when a hot mic picked up a dinner date conversation between he and Sage Steele (ESPN has done a diligent job of scraping that video from the internet). Qerim is half Albanian and also has a splash of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean descent. I think it works well for her look.
Solid work, Jalen. Should make for an interesting work Happy Hour.
