Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo is a sports god in Europe, and he has the salary to prove it. Ronaldo is starting to register with non-sports-centered Americans too, especially after a very brief fling with Paris Hilton. So, like all good potential celebrities, Ronaldo has a sex scandal brewing. A woman named Naya recently hit the airwaves to give a detailed account of her roll in the hay with the soccer superstar. The 21-year-old gave an exclusive interview to a Spanish television show dishing the dirty details. The reason the show got the exclusive interview? It is rumored that the media outlet paid her to bed the actor and then promised to go on-air about it! In other words, these TV execs may have been willing to basically prostitute this woman (who went along with it, in theory) to get superficial details about Cristiano Ronaldo’s sex life — what a crazy story, right? Yet, that isn’t what’s catching media attention. Press and opinions about the tryst instead are focusing on the fact that this women is “fat.” Keep reading »
I was raised in a peculiar fashion. As for many kids, movies and TV provided important entertainment and a good way to keep me quiet. But the content I grew up on has been deemed questionable by some. I was banned from watching children’s shows because my father thought it was mind-numbing, repetitive trash that I could easily be taught with flash cards. And so “Barney” and “Sesame Street” were supplanted by what my parents wanted to watch—”Frasier,” “Mad About You,” “Jaws,” “Ransom,” whatever. I am not necessarily advocating this way of child-rearing, but two things did come out of it.
- As an adult, I have a strange affinity for educational kids’ shows.
- Since my father had stronger opinions at the video store, I have watched a huge number of “man movies,” basically since birth.
And the latter has offered me a certain advantage in stirring up conversation with guys. If you drop buzz words like “Boondock Saints” or “Big Lebowski,” and know what you are talking about, you can find yourself earning some major points with men. Keep reading »
Usually, this story would just be about Justin Timberlake landing a role in a new film called “Friends With Benefits.” But there is a bigger issue here, other than questioning whether JT can successfully act in something that isn’t “Saturday Night Live.” See, Justin’s “Friends With Benefits” is just one of three projects currently in the works with the same title. You’d think this title would’ve been used already, since the term has bopped around our lexicon for years, but it hasn’t. It looks like the entertainment world can use a little help deciding whom to bestow the coveted title to. Read on and decide who you think deserves the prize. [Deadline] Keep reading »
It looks like Kate Gosselin shares secrets just about as well as she dances. For the few of you who didn’t see her latest performance on “Dancing With the Stars,” it was sort of like watching a poor interpretative dance about a stalled car. Now, it seems that Kate has also stalled on sharing anything too juicy in her new memoir, I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Children on Love, Faith and Family, based on excerpts in Us Weekly. The upcoming book is a series of notes written to the different members of her extensive brood. The notes include reassurances to her children that just because she is busy being famous and getting new hairstyles, doesn’t mean that she won’t always be there for them. Unless she is flying out to L.A to dance. So basically, I Just Want You to Know is a snoozefest. Read on to see some of the most “interesting” excerpts from the memoir, but don’t prepare to be shocked. Keep reading »
Remember playing house with your kindergarten boyfriend and Play-Doh food? Well, Peepshi is the sushi equivalent of taking something wholly adult and giving it a juvenile rebirth. All you need are three childhood dietary staples: Fruit by the Foot, Rice Krispies, and, of course, Peeps. But be warned! This recipe is not for the faint of heart, or people who don’t like to get their hands sticky. You will need to have the nerve to cut off quite a few candy chicken heads. [Serious Eats] Keep reading »
