ESPN baseball analyst and former Mets general manager Steve Phillips has admitted to having a brief affair with a 22 year old that has taken a twist that Phillips probably didn't anticipate. His alleged 3 week affair with 22-year-old production assistant Brooke Hundley this summer has landed him with a wife who is divorcing him and a one week suspension from ESPN.

This isn't the first time Steve Phillips has cheated on his wife, Marni. In 1998 he was slapped with a sexual harassment suit when he was the New York Mets general manager.

Steve Phillips, 46, was hired as a baseball analyst for ESPN prior to the 2005 baseball season, and is a regular on the nightly programs Baseball Tonight and SportsCenter. He primarily served as a game analyst during Wednesday Night Baseball telecasts through 2008, moving to the Sunday Night Baseball booth the following season. He also serves as an analyst on Monday Night Baseball.

The movie Fatal Attraction is being used in many headlines in the latest scandal involving ESPN's Steve Phillips. The focus is most definitely centered around the reports that Brooke Hundley's actions after Steve Phillips ended the brief sexual relationship.

The Wilton, Connecticut police report states that Hundley accidentally smashed her car into a stone column while speeding away from the Phillips’ home. She was allegedly there to leave a letter for Steve Phillips' wife, Marni.

The lengthy typed letter from Brooke Hundley to Marni Phillips gave blatant details about the affair. It also gave physical details that would supposedly verify that she was with Steve Phillips intimately.

"Hi Mami, My name is Brooke, I work with Steve and he and I got into a pretty heated argument on Sunday about the fact that he hasn't been honest with you about our relationship. You see, I'm the woman he's been seeing for awhile now..."

In a statement given to the police, Steven Phillips gave details about his admitted affair with Brooke Hundley and mentioned his concern for his family:

"I have extreme concerns about the health and safety of my kids and myself," Steve Phillips said in a police statement, adding that the woman became "obsessive and delusional" after he dumped her.

It is apparent that ESPN's Steve Phillips did not consider the safety of his family when he once again ventured into an affair. Phillips has a wife and four sons. The couple had their two youngest sons after Phillip's re-established his relationship with his wife after his last round of infidelity several years ago.

Details to the affair between ESPN's Steve Phillips and 22 year old Brooke Hundley will undoubtedly continue to become the hot topic of the day around the ESPN water coolers and on the Internet.
