Serious Bling: 500 Carat Diamond Discovered

Miners in Lesotho, a kingdom in southern Africa, found one of the world’s largest diamonds, a near-perfect gem weighing nearly 500 carats, said mining group Gem Diamonds on Sunday. The diamond, which has not been named yet, was discovered on September 8 and was then analyzed by experts in Antwerp, who found it to weigh 478 carats, with very few inclusions and of outstanding color and clarity.”It has the potential to yield one of the largest flawless D color round polished diamonds in history,” the company said in a statement. The Letseng Mine, where this stone was extracted from the earth, has also yielded four of the world’s 20 largest rough diamonds, including three that have been found in this century. The value of this diamond is hard to estimate because it hasn’t been cut into smaller gems. But a similar weight stone with lesser-quality color and clarity had recently sold for $12 million, said a Gem Diamonds spokesperson. I wonder how much of those millions will actually benefit the economy and people of Lesotho.

As stated above, this diamond, weighing in at nearly 500 carats, is not the most impressive diamond to be mined. After the jump check out ten of the world’s most famous diamonds. [AOL News] Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: My Best Friend’s Girl

Starring Kate Hudson, Dane Cook, Jason Biggs, Alec Baldwin
While the film “My Best Friend’s Girl” could be easily classified as a typical rom-com judging by the misleading commercials and cheesy poster, its filth factor actually pushes it into the “gross humor” category. And that is what made me love it even more. I cracked up the whole time, but I will forewarn you — Dane Cook haters should not pay the $11 bucks to see this film.

    The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For September 20th-21st 2008

    TV this weekend is really kind of wack because there’s hardly anything of note to watch. That is unless you’re a fan of the cult classic Spaceballs. G4 TV will premiere “Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs: The Animated Series” on Saturday (clip, after the jump). And if you need a refresher on the film that inspired this new series, the folks at G4 will air the film before the premiere. You can also watch some really entertaining movies, like the Legally Blonde franchise. Sunday is the better day for TV watching, especially in the evening, when “Gossip Girl” and “ANTM” repeat and the “60th Primetime Emmy Awards” air. [TV Guide]

    Elizabeth Edwards Staying Tight-Lipped On John’s Skirt-Chasing

    Back in August, John Edwards confessed that he’d cheated on his wife. Since then, we’ve heard barely a peep from him or his wife. Elizabeth Edwards finally spoke out about his affair in an exclusive interview with the Detroit Free Press. Though she had known about the affair for a long time before it became public, Elizabeth said that since his admission, she’s been focusing on her children and health care reform. “There’s a lot of adjustment to make,” she said. “When you mention trust, that’s probably the most difficult hurdle.” But she isn’t saying much more than that. When asked whether she’d forgiven her husband, she replied, “I don’t want to feed the monster, if you don’t mind.” She pointed out that if her leg had been amputated — rather than, say, her husband having an affair — people wouldn’t ask her: “Are you over that leg thing yet?” More importantly, she’s battling stage IV breast cancer, which has spread to her bones, although she isn’t wallowing. Instead, she’s testifying before Congress on health care reform and listening to Leonard Cohen’s “Anthem.” You go, girl. [Detroit Free Press] Keep reading »
