If fear of lung cancer or emphysema isn’t enough to make you quit smoking, do it for your nipples. Apparently, nicotine and carbon monoxide restrict blood flow to various parts of the body … like your nipples. According to plastic surgeon, Anthony Youn, M. D., smokers who undergo breast surgery are at great risk for having their nipples “turn black and fall off.” They just die. Guh! Youn once tried to bring a patient’s purple (about to turn black) nipples back to life by placing leeches on them. “The leech drains the old blood, causing it to turn from unhealthy purple back to healthy pink. We place leeches intermittently until the body part grows new blood vessels to do the leeches’ work,” Youn recalled. The image of this entire scenario is terrifying. [CNN]
I’ve never particularly wanted to see Tori Spelling‘s boobs. But thanks to her husband Dean McDermott, now we all can! Last night, he innocently tweeted a photo of his and Tori’s young son in a funny moment with something stuck to his head. Alas, upon further inspection, Tori’s naked boobs are visible in the background! In fact, no further inspection is required — they are blatantly right there. This photo raises many questions for me. First of all, why is she randomly topless? And why did Dean post this? The photo has since been removed without comment from Dean, so we may never know why he shared her ta-tas with the world. Russell Brand’s Twitpic last year of Katy Perry’s makeup-free face seems positively unremarkable in comparison (mostly because no nipples were involved). [TMZ]
Holly Madison is starring in “Peepshow,” and fully recognizes that her breasts are her “primary money makers” right now. That’s why she has taken out an insurance policy to the tune of $1 million with insurance company Lloyd’s of London to protect them. “I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars,” she said. “I thought I’d cover my assets.” [People]
