It turns out that fake butts and boobs are really versatile — and operate as great storage units. A 33-year-old Italian model was arrested and charged with smuggling more than five pounds of cocaine in her fake breasts and in her fake butt. Security officers stopped the woman at the airport after she failed to explain what she had been doing during her trip to South America. The woman apparently thought that wearing a tight fitting shirt would help get her through customs faster (ah, that old gem), but it only served to draw more attention to her, um, illegal assets. “They stopped her for questioning because she was so alluring and her story about why she was in South America just fell apart,” said Antonio Di Greco, police chief at Fiumicino airport. The woman, whose identity has been concealed, was charged with international drug trafficking and is currently being held at the Rome airport. So much for those implants paying for themselves.

Teens lie. That’s nothing new. But a new study found that teens lie rather profusely when it comes to their drug use. According to researchers from Wayne State University and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, teens lied about their drug use, even when hair samples proved otherwise. Apparently, it was more important for these teens to report drug use that they believed was consistent with their peers than to be truthful. Of course, it’s unlikely that a heroin addict is going to want to be forthcoming about their drug use if everyone else in the room has only smoked marijuana. And that got us thinking: do adults lie about drug use in the same way kids do? Depending on whom you’re friends with, illicit drug use can be either a badge of honor or a definite taboo. Have you ever felt the need to tone down or talk up your drug use to fit in? Keep reading »
Fascinating new information about the science of love! Apparently, the feeling of falling in love is similar to the “euphoria” of taking cocaine, not that I know anything about that. According to a Syracuse University study, when a person “falls in love,” 12 parts of the brain work together to release crazy amounts of dopamine, oxytocin, adrenaline and vasopression, which, uh, I guess also happens when you’re channeling Tony Montana and snorting a mountain of coke. And it happens quick — that perfect cocktail of chemicals release in only about a fifth of a second. Keep reading »
Las Vegas police arrested Paris Hilton for cocaine possession on Friday night after she and her boyfriend, nightclub owner Cy Waits, arose suspicion during a traffic stop for “hotboxing” their car. This is the third time this summer Paris has been busted for drugs: In July, Paris was caught with marijuana at the World Cup in South Africa, and she was also held by police in Corisca when they found pot in her purse. Paris managed to escape charges both times, but a cocaine bust might not go away so easily. Cute mug shot, though! [People] Keep reading »
George Clooney‘s Italian actress girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, has already made headlines for claiming Jennifer Aniston looks like raggedy old Iggy Pop and playing a nun who flashes her boobies in a film. Now court documents reveal that a prostitute employed by The Club, a nightclub in Milan, Italy, gave verbal testimony in October 2008 claiming she had done cocaine with Clooney’s girl.
We are shocked. Cocaine and prostitutes, and Charlie Sheen is not even involved? Keep reading »
Ending a relationship is never fun, but it’s definitely worse when you are the one getting your heart broken. After being scorned, many find that the road to recovery involves a lot of sobbing, Facebook stalking, and limited contact with the outside world. Why is it that withdrawal from a relationship can cause such extreme emotions and actions? Well, researchers think it may be because we are actually addicted to love. A recent study published in the Journal of Neurophysiology shows that the same part of the brain is activated when someone feels rejected romantically as when someone is craving cocaine.
