U.S. Olympian Destinee Hooker

I Got Married, But ...

I'll Always Be a Hooker

9/20/2012 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0918_Destinee-Hooker_wmSilver medalist Destinee Hooker secretly got married last week -- but the powerhouse volleyball player tells TMZ ... despite the stupid jokes she's been exposed to her entire life (like our headline) she refuses to give it up.

Hooker tells TMZ ... she and her fiance Steven Coulter tied the knot at a courthouse in Texas on September 13 ... but she's not ditching her infamous name just because she got hitched.

Hooker says she loves being a "Hooker" and will simply add on to her nombre -- becoming Destinee Hooker-Coulter from here on out.

So, why the quickie wedding? The v-ball player says she had a short window to get married because she was moving to Russia (she's there now) to play a season of volleyball ... she says there will be a bigger ceremony next year in San Antonio, TX.

Congrats!!!!

women and long nails... especially ugly ones like these., just the dumbest thing possible. Everyone likes for a woman to take care of herself but growing nails out like Wolverine and painting and decorating them like a carnival raft, thats just redundant.
