AROUND THE WEB:

-- It looks like Kiara Mia has moved on from Jimmy Garoppolo.

The porn star was spotted with some international soccer stars at Poppy in West Hollywood recently. The soccer players reportedly included World Cup champion Samuel Umtiti from France and Karim Benzema.

TMZ talked to her outside of Poppy and she said she’s been “getting some crazy offers lately” after her date with Garoppolo.

She also said she has “all the porn companies trying to re-shoot me” but made it clear she owns her own porn company so she’s not sure why she would shoot with someone else.

Garoppolo said on Wednesday his date with Kiara Mia was definitely a “learning experience.”

-- Kristine Leahy’s new show is coming to Fox Sports 1 this fall and the details of its content have been revealed.

The half-hour show will air “at some point in the 5 to 6 p.m. Eastern block” and will feature Leahy interviewing subjects in their homes and workplaces.

In an interview with Sporting News, Mike Antinoro the senior vice president of IMG Original Content, said the idea of the show is to rediscover the “lost art” of long-form sports interviews.

“We felt like the long-form interview is kind of a lost art these days when it comes to sports,” said Antinoro. “That could be because of the proliferation of so much media — and so much accessibility to athletes. They almost can put their own interviews up on any media they want to. We want to have a real conversation.”

Leahy will not broadcast from a studio, as other FS1 shows do, but will be on location in homes and workplaces.

“We will try to keep it as comfortable and casual as possible so we really are looking in on a conversation with Kristine and (her subject),” Antinoro added.

Leahy, formerly of WEEI, left her role as Colin Cowherd’s update anchor on The Herd in April to pursue her own show.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "My life off the field, I’ve never been very public with things. Even social media, I’m not out there a ton. But my life’s looked at differently. I’m under a microscope and, like Kyle [Shannahan> said, it’s a good learning experience.” -- Jimmy Garoppolo, on his very public date with Kiara Mia
