Wifey Of: Joe Namath, New York Jets (NFL)
At the end of the 1960s and throughout the 1970s, Welch was one of Hollywood's hottest young stars and was deemed the "Most Desired Woman" of the 1970s by Playboy. Joe Namath had already made good on his Super Bowl "guarantee," and he certainly had a way with the ladies. The Jets' quarterback reached his apex in 1972 when he escorted Welch to the Academy Awards, although it is unclear if and when they dated beyond that night. No word on whether Namath drunkenly told Welch he wanted to kiss her, either.
