-On KFAN’s “Powertrip Morning Show,” the hosts this morning spent several minutes on air attempting to figure out how many women Ric Flair had sex with on average per week during his adult life to have reached the 10,000 number he bragged about in an interview for ESPN’s “30 for 30” special about him that is due to air in November. Porn star Ron Jeremy told TMZ he thinks that number is not true. Flair told People that he wishes he hadn’t said it “because of my grandkids.” This story is getting a lot of play elsewhere, including at MAXIM.
