Rich Eisen? Rich Eisen? Where are those swimsuit pics, Rich Eisen?

It’s been talk of the internet over the last two days, the swimsuit pictures sent to NFL Network host Rich Eisen from KYW News Anchor Alycia Lane that got into the hands of Eisen’s wife, Suzy Shuster. Eisen and Shuster are a sportscasting power couple. Rich as mentioned is the main host for the NFL Network, Suzy has worked as a sideline reporter for ABC and does work on the USC pre-game show on football broadcasts.

As you may have heard by now, Lane e-mailed some sexy swimsuit pics of her to Rich. What Alicia didn’t know was that the addy was shared by Rich and Suzy. Page Six of the New York Post on Tuesday broke the story. Suzy saw them before Rich and replied:

“Boy, do you look amazing in a bikini . . . congrats! Whatever you’re doing, (Pilates? yoga?) keep doing it – it’s working for you. Anyway, sorry but those seven e-mails you sent to my husband, Rich, well, oops, they came to the e-mail address we both use from time to time, but no worries, I’ll forward the beach shots as well as the ones of you dancing with your friends on to his main address. Do you have it?

“….since you surely are trying so hard to get his attention. I mean, what better way to get a guy’s attention than with skin! Best – Suzy Shuster Eisen”

Now, Lane is trying to spin this. She spoke to Michael Klein of the Philadelphia Inquirer and said in a statement:

“Rich Eisen and I have been good friends for almost 10 years and our relationship has always been purely platonic,” Lane’s statement said.

“We regularly exchange e-mails and photos. It’s unfortunate that there was a misunderstanding over some harmless pictures of myself and my friends on vacation that I shared with him.”

She added that the pics “harmless” banter between “two old friends,” and she knew Rich and Suzy were married. Lane said the pics were of her with friends on vacation. Ok. Whatever.

Lane is twice divorced and recently split up with her second husband. And according to Gross, she’s not a stranger to Page Six which had stories of her canoodling with Prince Albert of Monaco.

Neither Rich nor Suzy have officially commented. There’s a hunt for those pics. If they do come out, they’ll be from the Eisen camp as Lane says she won’t release them.
