US Weekly reports that Brazil’s Secretariat for Women’s Affairs is calling for a sexy beer commercial starring Paris Hilton to be pulled. The commercial advertising Devassa beer — which means “debauched” or “lewd” in Portuguese — features the skimpily-clad Hilton rubbing a can of beer sensually over her body while standing before a window of tongue-wagging onlookers. (Perhaps too much Devassa would explain what the hell Paris was doing when she was photographed on all fours recently?) “It’s an ad that devalues women — in particular, blond women,” the spokeswoman for the Secretariat claimed.

It has most certainly been the year of the “no good, very bad man” as sex scandals have raged over the illicit sex lives of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, “Late Night” host David Letterman and, of course, Tiger Woods. It has been the year of Jon and Kate Gosselin. From separation to divorce, a day hasn’t gone by without one of the two of them making headlines, and the other appearing on the “Today Show” to talk all about it.
