It’s a movie plot unfortunately come to life. Earlier this week, movie publicist Ronni Chasen—who represented big-time flicks like “Alice In Wonderland” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”—was shot while driving her car home from the “Burlesque” premiere after-party. Police were originally at a loss to why someone would fire five shots into Chasen’s vehicle and then drive away, leaving her body to be found the next morning. Officials were considering everything from a car jacking to road rage. Now, after examining the crime scene and video footage from the section of Sunset Boulevard where Chasen was killed, police believe that someone planned the murder. They think that a car was ordered to follow Chasen, eventually pulling alongside her and firing the fatal shots. The details of the murder have yet to be sorted out, but police are continuing to examine video footage and 911 calls, while Chasen’s family and friends are offering a $100,000 reward for any helpful information.

But seriously, how is this even possible? Keep reading »
Thirsty? Maybe you should go boink. Well, you should if you’re a lady and also a beetle. For female beetles, sex is like a big jug of Vitamin Water because the males produce literally 10 percent of their body weight in semen. So, in human terms, my average BF would be blowing a 20 lb. wad. Dayum! Anyway, a University Of Exeter study found dehydrated lady beetles will literally have sex with a male beetle just because they need a drink. And you thought your standards were low!
