On the latest episode, the two discussed various things that included losing their virginity.
“Oh, on the pregame… we were talking about our first kiss. I had my first kiss when I was 12 years old, But I lost my virginity early. I’m just gonna go right into it. I mean, well, look, I’m still friends with the guy. But how about this?
I lost my virginity at 15 years old. So you think about it now like a 15-year-old,like, ‘oh my god that’s so young.’ that was my boyfriend all the way into high school.
I mean, you know, you’re young when I had braided pigtails. When I like went over to this. It was all arranged… I was just like, this was like my love. He went to a different junior high than I did.
And we met because I played on a basketball team with girls that (went to his) junior high and we met and we fell in love. And then he was my boyfriend all the way through until like junior year in high school and then he broke up with me because he dated a sophomore and I was so upset.”
“Eww,” Andrews replied.
Thompson went on to add how they are still friends and that at one point her ex-boyfriend’s sister dated her brother in high school.
Charissa Thompson has had quite a life in sports. Previously, Thompson worked for ESPN, Versus, as well as for GSN and the Big Ten Network. She was the co-host of SportsNation along with Marcellus Wiley until her departure from ESPN for Fox Sports in June 2013.

She has rebounded nicely from that bad moment.
