Philly.comIt turns out John Bolaris is dating a Playboy model. Go figure. Monday, when we told you Playboy was writing about the Fox 29 meteorologist’s Miami escapade in which he was drugged and scammed by two Eastern European women, we joked that usually he is chasing Playboy material, not that he is Playboy material himself. We’ve since learned that Bolaris, 53, recently began dating Erica Smitheman, 32, who appeared in several Playboy Special Editions from 1999 into 2002. Smitheman, a Camden County College grad who works in sales, appeared in “College Girls 1999,” “Nude College Girls 2000,” and the “Book of Lingerie” in 1999 and 2002.

Pimp on, Johnny Boy! Real G’d-up weathermen rebound with hot blonde former Playboy models when they take a loss. I mean who even remembers that incident with the Latvian chicks who drugged you and left you in a cab with a strange painting then met up with you and drugged you again and stole your AmEx card then blew $43,000 of your money on liquor and caviar? That’s not even like the type of thing that would stick out in people’s minds.

But congrats to you for coming back with a vengeance. She’s the star of College Girls 1999 and Nude College Girls 2000 AND a CCC grad? Women with Associates degrees don’t come around every day. I don’t wanna put any unnecessary pressure on you bro but this is wife material if I’ve ever seen it. Circle her finger with a diamond immediately.
