Somehow, Rodney King has managed to creep up in the news every few years since he was awarded $3.8 million after being the victim of a police beating. This time around, he’s making headlines for being engaged to one of the jurors who awarded him the cash settlement during his civil suit in 1994. King first met Cynthia Kelley at a Newport Beach pizzeria the day after the jury awarded him the money. And supposedly, they felt an instant romantic connection, but both were married at the time. King and Kelley remained together until he joined the cast of VH1′s “Celebrity Rehab,” which was the last time King was in the news. They reconnected again four months ago, and both say they felt the same attraction. Love conquers all, I guess. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
A man whose girlfriend broke up with him decided he wouldn’t take the matter lying down. To soothe his broken heart, he ordered a sex doll that looked like her as a replacement. So says Diego Bortolin, who runs an adult shop called Tentazioni, or “Temptations,” in Trevino, Italy, where he makes sex dolls. The 50-year-old client sent Bortolin photos of his ex and these instructions: “I want it just like her but with bigger boobs.” (Spencer Pratt, is that you?) For his ex’s synthetic twin, the man paid £15,000, or around $23,000. “Some people say it is kinky,” Bortolin said, “but she is now the perfect girlfriend as far as I can see.” Except, she can’t talk, eat, or walk. Or, you know, live. [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
Giving hope to saggy breasts everywhere, a British bra company, Triumph, has teamed up with a military fitness training school for a “boob camp” workout. How do you tone a body part that’s filled with fat (or silicone!)? The UK’s No.1 Boot Camp and Triumph claim their “boob camp” push-ups and dumb bell presses will tone the muscles around your breasts and help hold ‘em high. This sounds like a B.S. cross-promotional idea to me, but hey, maybe you have seen soldiers with amazing racks.
Do you believe a “boob camp” could actually tone your ta-tas or is this idea a crock? [AudioFuel] Keep reading »
“My initial reaction was ‘Who the hell is Sarah Palin?’ like everybody else. Like the rest of the country, I had no idea who she was, and I was actually crying on the bus on the way to the rally.”

A Finnish doctor is on trial for sexual molestation after using a highly unorthodox method to diagnose a patient. When a 20-year-old woman came into his office complaining of nipple fluid, the doctor says he “used an old midwives trick” to diagnose her. After asking her permission, he sucked on her nipple. Now it’s up to the Finnish Supreme Court to decide if his method was inappropriate. Way to go, Dr. Nipple Sucker, M.D. That’s about as creepy as it gets. [FOX] Keep reading »
