Hot girls playing with balls? What’s not to like? Hence, the creation of a new weekly event in New York called “Models vs. Models” where ladies from different agencies around the city get together and battle each other in ping pong while dudes watch and drink beer. A very “fun” concept in and of itself. When interviewed about ping pong, all of the models reported basically the same thing, “It’s fun and hard.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Santa just shoved a big honkin’ piece of gossip down our stocking a day early: a source tells Gawker that Susan Sarandon split from Tim Robbins, her beau of 23 years, for Jonathan Bricklin, a 31-year-old investor in a Manhattan ping pong club. For those of you who live outside the NYC area, yes, our fair city has an “exclusive” ping pong social club called Spin that members pay $100 to attend. Bricklin is an entrepreneur behind Spin and Sarandon has always been an, um, enthusiastic supporter.
We can’t tell if we’re more bowled over by the ping pong angle, or how the 63-year-old actress is allegedly boning a man 30 years younger than her. (It’s the “Madonna effect.”) All we have to say is: Susan Sarandon, you dog, you! [Gawker] Keep reading »
