Remember MTV VJ Kennedy from the early ’90s? Remember VJs? Remember when MTV still had M? OK, children of the millennium — remember Michael Jordan? There we go.

Kennedy, a minor celebrity from the days of alternative rock, claims that she was having dinner with Michael back in 1995, when he busted out a set of dice and suggested that they play — with the prize being a night in Michael’s hotel room with Kennedy, she claims in her upcoming memoir “The Kennedy Chronicles.”

Kennedy freaked out, because she was a virgin at the time, according to TMZ. She suggested they play for Knicks tickets instead — whereupon Michael suddenly remembered he was a married man. It turned out not to matter anyway: Kennedy won the dice game.

Unsurprising, Jordan’s first marriage has since ended. He remarried in April in a lavish ceremony in Palm Beach, Fla.

Jordan, 50, married longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto, 35, in front of 1,500 of their closest friends. Yeah, you heard me, 1,500 guests. I’m not sure I’ve met 1,500 people in my entire life, let alone know them well enough to invite them to the biggest day of my life. Five hundred people were at the wedding at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Church itself for the ceremony.

Well, biggest day of my life Part 2 for Jordan. (We’re guessing first wife Juanita Vanoy was not one of the 1,500 guests.)
