I can’t help it. I loathe Ann Curry. I know she’s supposed to be the cute, cuddly – but still serious! – one on “The Today Show,” but homegirl makes me want to punch something. For starters, she’s a gusher. She fawns over her celebrity interview subjects like she’s on the verge of orgasming from inhaling their talented, sexy, beautiful scent. She glows and raves about their various accomplishments – “So philanthropic!” “You’ve done so much for starving children!” “Your 30 second cameo in this film is cinematic genius!” — and never asks tough questions. She giggles like a school girl who’s seen a boy’s pee-pee for the first time. Oh, and that laugh. That laugh makes me stabby. Keep reading »
In case your first sexual experience wasn’t awkward enough, Alina Percea, the 18-year-old who auctioned her virginity on a German website to help pay for college, is dishing all the details of her experience. Proving he’s a real romantic, the 45-year-old Italian businessman whose $13,600 bid won the auction paid to fly Alina to Venice — after she underwent to medical exams to prove her virginity. In Venice, the two toured the city before retiring to a luxury hotel for the main event. “‘We kissed, then undressed each other,’ Alina says. ‘I’d never done that before, so I was nervous. He laid me on the bed and started kissing my body, then we had sex. I was attracted to him, so I enjoyed it, even though it was quite painful.’” The next morning Alina, who, as part of the auction, didn’t use protection, enjoyed breakfast with the winning bidder “like any other couple” and took a morning-after pill. The romance doesn’t stop there, guys! “He told me he’d like to see me again, and I agreed.” Although the money raised fell short of the $75,000 she hoped to earn, she says, “I hope to see the man again. And next time I won’t make him pay!” Awww. [via DailyMail] Keep reading »
Space mission. Space station. Space junk. We’re proud of space-loving astronaut Megan McArthur, who’s on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis with six dudes. The ship’s mission is to repair the Hubble Space Telescope, and as chief robotics officer Megan used the shuttle’s 50-foot robotic arm to release the Hubble back into orbit. No one will see it again until 2010. [CNET] Keep reading »
No Shirt, no shoes, big problem! After a long day of swimming and drinking, West coaster Annette Hurd was involved in a little accident. Rather than stop her vehicle, she fled the scene. And drove more than 50 miles before stopping. Even with police cars and helicopters tailing her. Why? “I was worried about losing my dog,” she says.
Reaching speeds of 100 mph, this high-speed chase ended in Sacramento when police used a patrol car to ram Hurd’s sweet ride to a stop. (And by “sweet,” we mean she was driving a Geo Tracker. Hottt.) This chick jumped out of her car, wearing no shoes and a pink tankini, and threw herself, mullet and all, onto the pavement. She was handcuffed and carted away. [AOL]
Looks like her dog had to spend the night alone after all. Keep reading »

For the last three months, I’ve been a bit of an unwitting viewer of “Dancing with the Stars.” I haven’t watched it religiously, I never set my DVR to record it, and I never watched an entire episode from start to finish, but most Monday evenings, I could probably be found tuning in for at least a few minutes. The truth is I watched for one reason and one reason only, and that was to lust over gorgeous Gilles Marini (the “naked guy” from the “Sex and the City” movie). If you’ve caught his dancing this season, you may have been as surprised as I was to learn he didn’t win the title last night. Instead, he was beat — by less than a percentage point — by perky 17-year-old gymnast, Shawn Johnson (the third Olympian to win DWTS — Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno are previous season winners).

I may have missed liveblogging last week’s episode, but I’ve since caught up with my watching, and, dudes, this s**t is awesome. Dina’s lips are so glossy. Teresa’s hair is so big, and her bubbies are so small. And Caroline. Oh, Caroline. The mama of the group. This show is like that terrible TV movie “La Bella Mafia,” only, well, not as awesome.

Britney was sued by her former bodyguard, Kerry Vine, for “negligently operat[ing] her home.” Vine claimed the work he was forced to perform at her Los Angeles estate caused him to sustain physical injuries. [TMZ] — We’re hoping “physical injuries” isn’t a euphemism for “coke addiction.”
Meghan McCain talked sex and gay marriage with Colbert last night. [Jezebel] — Props to McCain, who proved to be a bit vapid, but sweet and surprisingly open-minded.
Photoshop allowed Obama to transform into a “trekkie” for the day — or for however long you keep these photos as your screensaver. [Urlesque] — Sorry, Pres, but you can’t compete with Chris Pine.
