Does Brent Musburger get a cut?
Former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb swept through town last week for a photo shoot for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and she is now planning a permanent move to the Big Apple, The Post's Page Six can reveal.
Webb — Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend who shot to fame when ESPN commentator Musburger went gaga by calling her a “beautiful woman” during the Alabama-Notre Dame game — was overheard telling fans at Meatpacking District restaurant Toy that she was moving to the Big Apple to pursue a full-time modeling career.
The 23-year-old Alabama native, who now lives in Los Angeles, arrived dolled up to the eatery Thursday night while here for the SI swimsuit shoot.
Spies told Page Six she sat down quietly for her meal when a table of women noticed the former pageant queen and grabbed her attention with cheers and applause.
Webb, who was “initially caught off-guard,” then opened up to the female fans about planning to move to the city so she could establish a modeling career.
Webb was also overheard saying that she was offered a spot in the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” but did not say whether she would participate.
