Kari Simmons (née Crichton) is the wife of sports columnist William J. Simmons, who is better known as Bill Simmons. Bill Simmons is a former writer for ESPN magazine and ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’. He runs a website, bostonsportsguy.com, which helped him earn his job at ESPN. His net worth is estimated at $15 million.

Kari and Bill got married in 1999, and have been married for 16 years. They have two children together, 10 year old Josephine “Zoe” Simmons and 8 year old Ben Simmons. Kari was born to father James Crichton and mother Sandra Crichton in the year 1971. She has a brother, Joseph, who is married to Karen. Their older brother passed away in 2011 at 49 years of age.

Short articles written by Kari can be found on ESPN’s website. She is credited as “the sports gal” and shares her husband’s page 2 column. Her articles are short rants on whatever has been bothering her. She talks about a variety of topics including but not limited to her husband’s obsession with sports and the television show The Bachelor.

 She also writes about Celebrities like Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Britney Spears, sometimes citing her disapproval of their way of living.  In one of her rants, she writes:


“I used to really like Angelina Jolie. Ever since she starred in "Gia," I admired her flawless natural beauty, as well as the many character flaws that made her more likable and less threatening overall. Maybe she was a recovering drug addict, a cutter, a brother kisser, and a blood vial-wearing skank who looked like she showered once a week, but she didn't care what others thought and was totally comfortable going out in public without tons of makeup on. So that made her likable, at least to me. Even when she married Billy Bob Thornton, who's absolutely disgusting, I didn't hold it against her.


Then everything changed: She adopted Maddox, became a goodwill ambassador, started making normal movies and slowly made everyone forget that she was crazy. Next, she seduced and stole the husband of one of the most likable female celebs, adopted another baby with her stolen man, then had his biological child months before his divorce was even done. Now she travels all over the world in private jets wasting fuel and pretending to do nice things when we all know she's really a husband-stealing witch.”


Kari attended St. Bonaventure University, which is a private catholic University in Allegany, New York. She has previously resided in Mesa, Arizona; Scottsdale, Arizona and New York. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California. She has worked for Habama, Inc. which is a private e-business.


According to Bill’s social media accounts and his articles on the ESPN website, Kari has once run a marathon and recently adopted a rescue puppy.
