Katherine Webb's husband AJ McCarron is back in training camp with the Cincinnati Bengals as a backup quarterback and this reality has some fans talking about how it is very likely that her particular path to prominence will likely never be duplicated again.
The ex-Miss Alabama USA was spotted by television cameras while cheering on her boyfriend, the star quarterback for the University of Alabama, AJ McCarron, who is now her husband, during a game in 2013 and thanks to the compliments on her beautiful looks provided by commentator Brent Musberger she literally became a star overnight.
Within a year she appeared in the prestigious Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and on the television show "Splash" and her name became virtually synonymous with that of her high-profile boyfriend.
Her rise to fame sparked jealousy among some fans on social media as there was a point at which the fame and attention she received eclipsed that of her boyfriend and in the process resulted in athletes making great efforts to keep their girlfriends/partners out of sight to ensure that they will not have to share the attention and media spotlight.
Interestingly, some entertainment fans have been debating whether her modelling career received too much attention too early as she has been subjected to intense and often unfair scrutiny over whether her fit, beautiful body was too skinny. Moreover, some observers think that the insecure nature of her husband's job as a football player's contract is not guaranteed has prevented her from being able to pursue some potential television co-host opportunities.
Katherine Webb became a model sensation who men still look at as a fantasy woman thanks in part to her being identified as the girlfriend of the star player on the University of Alabama football team, a true All-American story that is memorable in many ways including the real possibility that it might never happen again.
