BRAND NEW SPECIAL "POWER PLAYERS: SPORTS' HOTTEST COUPLES" HOSTED BY GABRIELLE REECE PREMIERES SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28TH AT 7:00PM ET/PT ON E!

Los Angeles, CA - September 24, 2013 - Whether they have a stadium full of fans or a crowd on the red carpet screaming their name, professional athletes and Hollywood's hottest live in the spotlight making them a perfect match for love. From Hilary Duff to Kim Zolciak and Kristin Cavallari to Carrie Underwood, marriages that mix Hollywood and professional sports are becoming more and more popular. "Power Players: Sports' Hottest Couples" highlights how these duos met, the challenges they face, how they balance careers and families, and how they deal with those ugly and untrue rumors. See how these couples make their relationships work on and off the field when E!'s new special, "Power Players: Sports' Hottest Couples" hosted by American professional volleyball player Gabrielle Reece, premieres Saturday, September 28th at 7:00pm ET/PT.

This special takes an inside look at how some big name couples came together including details about Chicago Bears' Jay Cutler's quest to meet reality star, designer and future wife Kristin Cavallari, and Playboy model Jamie Edmonson's embarrassing first date with Tampa Bay Rays' Evan Longoria. Plus, "Power Players" takes a look at the challenges these couples face and the adjustments they have to make when stepping into the spotlight. From their relationships being splashed across the covers of the weekly tabloids to the girlfriends being blamed for their men's poor performances on the court and field, these couples definitely face some fouls in their love lives. Even country darling Carrie Underwood came under scrutiny when her husband NHL star Mike Fisher was drafted from his Canadian team to his wife's hometown to play for the Nashville Predators causing fans to deem it as "the day country music killed hockey." Ouch!

Once these couples say "I do" it becomes a whole other ballgame with balancing careers and expanding their families. In this revealing new special, athletes and their wives share how being in the spotlight is never easy for a couple-especially when it comes to the rumor mill. "Power Players" reveals how these couples fight to block out the outrageous and unbelievable stories to keep their relationships on track.

And for some, letting cameras into their home is how they put a stop to those rumors. E!'s newest reality show "Eric & Jessie: Game On" features newlyweds Denver Broncos' Eric Decker and country crooner Jessie James as they plan the wedding of their dreams all while sharing exclusive access to their fans about their lives on and off the field. In this brand new special, Eric and Jessie share why they agreed to their reality show and how their famous peers are getting in on the action.

For more insider information on these famous couples tune into the brand new E! Special "Power Players: Sports' Hottest Couples," hosted by Gabrielle Reece, premiering Saturday, September 28th at 7:00pm ET/PT on E!
