Heidi Northcott is Jose Canseco's girlfriend. According to LinkedIn, she is a VP of business development for High Traffic Media, an online marketing company, and as a hobby, she also plays poker, coming in 18th place in Larry Flynt's Challenge Cup in January 2008. She graduated from USC. "Jose Canseco: The Last Shot", an A&E documentary chronicling the once-heralded baseball star, revealed Heidi as his girlfriend last tonight.
Jose Canseco's books, "Juiced" and "Vindicated", exposed the previously unsuspected scale of steroid use in professional baseball; his own abuse of steroids lasted more than two decades and carried lasting consequences. The documentary followed Canseco into a doctor's appointment where he admitted, "I have no sex drive whatsoever. Zero." Heidi Northcott was present beside him, accompanying him while he tried to cure his sterility caused by depressed testosterone levels from long-term steroid use.
Among Jose Canseco's regrets and woes, the foremost is naming players like Mark McGwire and Jason Giambi as steroid users in his tell-all book. Another blow was losing his Encino, California, house to foreclosure. This October, he was also arrested crossing the Mexican border with a fertility drug, HCG, which boosts testosterone levels. He has a history of domestic violence, which the half-Vietnamese, half-English Heidi Northcott is hopefully aware of.
