Osama Bin Laden’s Death Sets A Tweets-Per-Second Record

So obviously, the big news of the week is that on Sunday night, Navy SEALS found and killed Osama bin Laden. And this may go down in history as the first major news event to unravel on Twitter. Not only did news of the kill leak out on the site a full hour before President Obama’s 11:30 p.m. address to the nation, but the event also set a record for the most tweets. From 10:45 p.m. to 2:20 a.m. on Sunday, there was an average of 3,000 tweets per second, which is apparently abbreviated “TPS” and immediately makes me think of “Office Space.” That peaked at 11 p.m. when there was an astonishing 5,106 TPS.

Carla Bruni Pregnant With Twins, Magazine Claims

Carla Bruni is pregnant with twins, according to French magazine Voici. The 43-year-old singer/actress/model/French First Lady already has a nine-year-old son, Aurelian, from another relationship. Carla is allegedly due to have her first child/children by French President Nicolas Sarkozy in October. But Carla is being mum about any potential pregnancy. When asked in an interview on Monday if she is pregnant, the Telegraph claims Carla said:

“If you’ll allow me, I’d rather not answer these questions about my family. I’d love to talk to you woman to woman about my family life, my personal dreams – and I’m really a very chatty person. But on this subject, I’m going to keep quiet. Not through arrogance or because I like keeping secrets. I am remaining tight-lipped about that to protect something. I would really like to to talk about it, but then it would take over everything else. And besides, it also involves people, so I’m not answering.”

Sounds like a non-confirmation confirmation to me! Another magazine, VSD, claims a senior aide to President Sarkozy also confirmed her pregnancy in off-the-record remarks. Sarkozy’s communications officer refused to comment, saying “That is a subject that is none of my business.” I guess we’ll have to wait un petit peu longer for an official confirmation about a trés trés chic bébé.

Introducing The Frisky’s “Most Stylish Man” Contest!

Sure, there are a lot of good-looking men in Hollywood. But how many really go the extra mile when it comes to dressing well? We think that real ought to recognize real, so we’re launching The Frisky’s official Most Stylish Man Contest. How it works: we’re starting with 16 stylish guys and are pairing them off against each other. The winner of each contest will go on to face a winner of another contest. Contestants will continue to be eliminated via our face-offs until we’ve discovered the number one most stylish man in the world. Like the March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament, only it’s not March and this is more shallow.

And here are the voting guidelines:

  1. Please consider each nominee primarily for their style. Yes, some of them are probably technically hotter than others, but we’re talking about fashions here.
  2. Additionally, some of these guys probably have crap personalities, we know. But again, this is about their sartorial sensibilities, not whether we’d want to hang out with them at a party or watch their stupid movies.

With those two rules in mind, we’d like to invite you to vote for your favorite stylish celeb. And may the best-dressed man win! Keep reading »

8 Famous Ladies Who Wouldn’t Reveal Their Baby Daddies, Plus 2 Famous Guys

January Jones is preggers and she isn’t saying who her baby daddy is. “She’s really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom,” her publicist explained, dodging the obvious question. The most obvious candidate is Jason Sudeikis, who she split from in January—timing that would be right on since she’s expecting in the fall. At the White House Correspondents Dinner, a Washington Post reporter tried to get some info out of Jason, asking if he had any comment. “I’d rather — yes but no,” was his response. When asked if he knew January was pregnant, he said, “No, I —,” then stammered, “No, I didn’t have anything [else to say].” Which to us, makes it even more obvious. [People, D-Listed]
