If you can remember when MTV only sucked half of the time— in the days when they actually played music videos— you might remember the one-named video jockey known as Kennedy. The former MTV VJ is claiming in her new book that Michael Jordan once tried to win her virginity —  when she wasn't introducing videos by TLC, Coolio and Boyz II Men— by playing a sexually-charged game of dice back in the early hip-hop days when "This Is How We Do It" topped the charts. The 40-year-old media personality recalls in “The Kennedy Chronicles” (via TMZ) that in 1995 she was having dinner with the NBA legend and Russell Simmons at the Bowery Bar in New York City when Jordan allegedly suggested a game of dice. Kennedy (real name Lisa Kennedy Montgomery) claims that Jordan then decided it was “time to play for something,” adding, “If I win, you come back to my hotel room with me tonight.” According to TMZ, that's when Kennedy says she freaked out because she was a virgin — and imagined MJ's anatomy would "eviscerate me from the inside out" ... so she asked if they could play for Knicks tickets instead.  And that's when Jordan allegedly reminded Kennedy he had a wife — and offered her Nets tickets as a consolation.  "Sure, he'll fillet my vag like a sea bass if he won at dice on a men's room floor," Kennedy writes ... "but as soon as I want basketball tickets he's a Promise Keeper? Whatevs." Kennedy says she won the dice game anyway -- so her body parts were never in any real danger.  TMZ reached out to MJ about the MTV VJ's claim and ... so far, no word back they said.
