Saved By The Boob: 6 Woman Who Owe Their Lives To Breast Implants

A 40-year-old woman in Moscow must be extremely happy with her decision to get silicon breast implants five years ago. And not just because her tatas look great in a tank top. Apparently, her implants saved her life. When she and her husband got in a fight earlier this week, he flew into a rage, picked up a knife and stabbed her in the left breast, apparently going for her heart. But because of her implants, the knife didn’t reach her vital organs. Her surgeon confirmed that if she hadn’t had a boob job, she would have died in the stabbing. Egads. [Gawker]

Bizarrely, this isn’t the first woman who owes her life to her implants. More cases after the jump.

Chris Pratt’s Cat-gate

Chris Pratt, aka the husband of Anna Faris who you know from “Parks and Recreation,” is on cat lovers’ s**t lists. On Monday, he tweeted a photo of a big white fluffy cat along with the message, “Anyone in the LA area want a cat? Full disclosure, she’s old and prone to accidents. So sweet though. And was in Stuart Little. Literally.” Later he clarified that he and Anna were looking for a home for the 19-year-old cat because, “We have pugs and she’s too old to deal. She needs one on one attention.” He then shouted out to Amanda Knox, “So happy for you and your family!!! Want a cat?”

Obviously, this didn’t go over too well in the Twitter-verse. Which I understand. You can’t just replace an old cat with younger, cuter pups?!?! When you adopt a pet, you take care of it for life. It’s a serious commitment.

Apparently, the backlash has gotten to Chris. He took to his blog to clear up the situation.

“America’s Next Top Model” Ann Markley Is Back

Missing "ANTM" All-Stars
The all-star cast is missing several favorites. Read More »
Watch Video

Ann Markley is hardly an “America’s Next Top Model” all-star. Even though she was completely stunning and the judges kept commenting on her incredible potential, she kind of sucked at the competition. Instead of rising to the top of the pack, she became a cranky nag, always picking at eventual winner Eva Pigford. But I am glad to see that, even though she wasn’t picked for the “All-Star” season, Ann hasn’t given up on modeling. Apparently, she’s appeared in Shape magazine and has been in commercials for Travelocity and Wheat Thins. Oh, and here she is in a new commercial for Olay. We’re so happy to see her again that we will kindly ignore the fact that the spot is for an over-the-lip hair removal cream. [ONTD]

Jennifer Aniston, Self-Admitted Chair Thrower

JenAn sucks on a lollipop, must be pregnant. Read More »

“I threw a chair at a director. It wasn’t my proudest moment. He was treating a script supervisor horribly … When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him. I missed, of course. I was like, ‘You can’t speak to people like that.’ I can’t tolerate it.”

Jennifer Aniston talks to Elle magazine about the time she got so fed up with a director for abusing the crew that she threw a chair at him. Because the tossing of furniture isn’t mistreatment also? Just ask Naomi Campbell.

After the jump, the quote from this interview that every other news source is going bonkers over because JenAn sort of, kind of mentions babies and her relationship with Justin Theroux.

A “Mr. Ed” Movie Is In The Works

I am terrified of horses. Not because I had a bad experience with one when I was younger. Nope, my irrational fear began while watching “Mr. Ed” reruns on Nick-at Nite. I mean, a talking, scheming horse—that is pretty darn scary to a kid! Well, unluckily for me, it appears that “Mr. Ed” may soon be headed to the big screen and could instill my fear in others. Fox has acquired the film rights to the 1960s series. You know, because the “Bewitched” movie was so critically acclaimed. I think it’s only a matter of time before someone greenlights “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Green Acres.” [Huffington Post]

Were you lucky enough to nab tickets to see Adele this month? Well, I’m very sorry to report that her upcoming 10-city US tour has been cancelled thanks to a vocal chord hemorrhage. “Singing is literally my life—it’s my hobbie, my love, my freedom and now my job,” Adele wrote, explaining her rationale for canceling her dates along the East Coast and in the South for the second time. “I have absolutely no choice but to recuperate properly and fully, or i risk damaging my voice forever … I have great confidence in believing you know how much this upsets me, how seriously i take it and how truly devastated and annoyed i am by this.” [Gossip Cop]

So will Adele reschedule these dates? Or are we just out in the cold? We look to recent history for some answers. Keep reading »

Katy Perry said goodbye to her cotton candy pink locks in this ad for GHD hair styling products. Instead, she channeled her inner Snow White, holding a poisoned apple. Personally, I love this look and think it’s far superior to either Kristen Stewart or Lily Collins as the fairy tale heroine. I also love the fact that Katy’s version of the tale takes place in art deco era New York City. [Huffington Post]

Kat Von D Recording An Album

“I’ve been passionate about music all my life. I’ve been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message. It’ll be more on the dark, more tragically romantic [side]  …  I think it’s much like tattooing or the TV show or makeup, my clothing line, fashion. All those things, they’re just different outlets to be able to be creative. So music, I think it’s going to be one of those things.”

Kat Von D tells E! News that, in the wake of the cancellation of “LA Ink,” she will be recording an album. Apparently last month, she sang “November Rain” during Fashion Week? This could either be a trainwreck in progress, or total genius. [NY Daily News]

These are proposals we would have said 'no' to. Read More »

Lauren and David Blair tied the knot in 1984. But they didn’t want their public pledge of love for each other to be a one-time thing. So they decided to renew their vows, again and again, each time in a different location. On October 2nd, they renewed their vows for the 99th time, making it their 100th marriage to each other. To put the numbers even more in context, the couple set the Guinness World Record for the “Most Marriage Vow Renewals by the Same Couple” back in 2001, when they renewed their vows for the 66th time. With each subsequent renewal, they have beaten their own record.

So why does the couple do this?

Taye Diggs’ Mom Thought He’d “Marry A White Girl”

“My mother said ‘I told you!’ She always thought—I hate this, but I’m being honest! She said, ‘I always knew you were gonna marry a white girl!’ It was a trip because [when Idina] took me home, her dad came out and I was like, ‘Ok, well take off that hood then and let’s see.’ No, I’m just kidding! I said, ‘You tough with the fiery cross in your yard!’ No, I gotta say I was really lucky. I don’t know what they felt on the inside, but I was very fortunate. They’re very loving, accepting. They’re great grandparents. I can’t lie, I had no issues there.”

Taye Diggs jokes on Sway’s radio show about how he and wife Idina Menzel’s families reacted to their interracial relationship. The couple has a 2-year-old son, and Taye has now written a kid’s book called Chocolate Me, which teaches children to deal with racism and taunting from their classmates. [Hello Beautiful]
