Athletes Remove Their Uniforms For ESPN The Magazine

ESPN is sexing things up with its first-ever “Body Issue,” which will feature six covers, each with a different athlete in the nude: mixed martial artist Gina Carano, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, tennis player Serena Williams, Orlando Magic basketball player Dwight Howard, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, and Sarah Reinertsen, the first amputee to compete in the Ironman Triathlon.

While this could go the way of that other sports magazine’s yearly provocative issue that features women in swimsuits, ESPN‘s special issue seems more like it’s honoring the work athletes put into developing their bodies for peak performance, rather than putting them on display in a sexual way. Though, we’re pretty sure some guys will be excited to see Williams in a new way. Keep reading for a look at triathlete Reinertsen’s cover. [HuffPo, USA Today] Keep reading »

Is It Fair For Mya To Compete On “Dancing With The Stars”?


Mya Harrison earned 27 points for her rumba dance on last night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” The judges gushed on and on about her great performance, which I have to say was very sexy and entertaining. But ever since Stacy Keibler competed on “DWTS” in season two I’ve had the same question: Is it fair for trained dancers to compete against Average Joe celebrities? Keep reading »

Why I’m Secretly Excited For “Secret Girlfriend”


www.comedycentral.com


What happens when some cads cruise for boobs and document their shenanigans YouTube-style? A ridiculous new Comedy Central series called “Secret Girlfriend.” The show is shot in a first-person format, making the viewer the central character in the lives of a 20-something single guy, his two besties/roommates and the two women in his life he’s trying to keep a secret from each other—psycho ex, Mandy, and new girlfriend, Jessica. I know I should be offended by the idiotic and childish pursuit of female tail, but for some reason all I can do is laugh my ass off at these guys. The fact that these clueless idiots actually think they can get laid is hilarious enough to diffuse their offensive antics. Check out the trailer—I’ll definitely be watching the premiere tomorrow night at 10:30 p.m. My fave one-liner? “I’m telling you … my penis looks really weird,” used as a pick-up line. Amazing!

Tyra Banks, Hilary Duff, And The 90 Bazillion Guest Stars On CW Shows


The CW has gone guest-star crazy! On last night’s episode of “Gossip Girl,” Hilary Duff and Tyra Banks both had major roles, and socialite/designer Tory Burch popped up in a cameo, as did Georgina Chapman, the designer for Marchesa. Hilary is Dan’s new love interest; she plays actress Olivia Burke who enrolls at NYU and becomes Vanessa’s roommate. She was reasonably decent, but since she’s sticking around for a few episodes, we certainly hope that they’ll upgrade her wardrobe from that ill-fitting t-shirt she donned for most of last night’s episode. We certainly don’t watch “Gossip Girl” for tees! The real story, however, was Tyra. Keep reading »

Archie Married Veronica, And Now He’s Proposing To Betty?

Apparently a married man is never happy with the life he’s chosen, even if he’s a comic book character. Ever since we learned that Archie was putting an end to the decades-old love triangle and choosing either Betty or Veronica, we’ve been contemplating which of the ladies would become his wife. When news leaked that he would propose to Veronica in the comic book’s 600th issue, we were a little bummed. Of course he had to pick the rich blond bimbo!

But now it seems this isn’t exactly the case. Keep reading »

Letterman Apologizes, Says He Has “His Work Cut Out” For Himself


After last week’s admission that he’d been blackmailed for having sex with former “Late Show” employees, David Letterman issued a mea culpa on last night’s show, apologizing to his staff and to his wife, Regina Lasko. First he delivered a monologue that was funnier than it was awkward, in which he quipped: “Right now, I would give anything to be hiking on the Appalachian Trail. I get in the car this morning and the navigation lady wasn’t speaking to me. Ouch!” Then Letterman went on to say that he hadn’t thought out how his admission last week would affect his staffers and he apologized for the relentless harassment they’ve endured from the press for the last few days. “I would like to set the record straight,” he said. “No, I am not having sex with these women. Those episodes are in the past. My apologies for subjecting them to that vulnerability and to being browbeaten and humiliated.” This brings up an interesting point: How many current female staffers are now being accused of having a sexual relationship with Dave? How many women who have earned promotions throughout the years are now suspected of having climbed the ranks horizontally? And I wonder if any of them have had any ‘splainin’ to do to their partners at home. Keep reading »

Cats And Dogs Take Over “Paper Planes”

“Paper Planes” by M.I.A. One of the catchiest songs of the last, oh, five years, only with dogs barking and cats screeching instead of gun shots and cash registers. Awesome. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

German Women’s Magazine Bans Models From Its Pages

German models might soon find themselves out of work. Today, the country’s most popular women’s magazine announced that it’s banning professional models in favor of real people. Starting next year, the bi-monthly Brigitte will feature a mix of prominent women and regular readers in photos dealing with content from fashion to fitness in an attempt to fight unhealthy beauty standards and please readers who are sick of seeing models with “protruding bones,” said Andreas Lebert, the magazine’s editor-in-chief.
