Tropical Storm Fabio Is The Sexiest Storm Ever

"I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!"
Margarine names are getting weirder and weirder... Read More »

My tropical storm has a first name, it’s F-A-B-I-O! But really you guys, the latest weather system ravaging its way across the Pacific is named Fabio. So far the storm doesn’t pose a threat to any land besides a tiny island, so you don’t have to feel weird about any sexual feelings this swirling mass of wind and rain might be bringing up for you. Apparently “Fabio” has been on the World Meteorological Organization’s list of storm names since 1982, when it replaced “Fico,” the name of a particularly devastating hurricane. According to The Weather Channel, 1982′s Hurricane Fabio “followed a path similar to the one expected for this year’s Fabio, staying well offshore. Afterward, Fabio returned every six years. Storms named Fabio brought locally heavy rainfall to Hawaii as remnant lows in 1988, 1994, and 2006, while the 2000 version of Fabio was a tropical storm that affected no land.”

As much as I like to think the storm-naming meteorologists had a thing for bodice rippers, the Weather Channel points out, “Fabio’s first appearance on the cover of a romance novel was for Hearts Aflame in 1987…So it would appear that ‘Fabio’ the storm came before ‘Fabio’ the model and actor.” [The Weather Channel]

Bret Michaels: Weather Man

Last week, before his appearance on “Bachelor Pad” last night or the news that he’s teaming up with Donald Trump for a reality series that sounds like far too wholesome (concept: Bret helps people “overcome their problems”), Bret Michaels had another TV gig. On the Weather Channel. Apparently, he did a little storm chasing for the network, showing footage taken out of his tour bus window. “This is Bret Michaels. I am on tour and heading into one of the most insane storms I’ve ever seen,” he says. “You’ve got to see this lightning, check it out. Woah. The wind’s gotta be blowing at least 40 mph. All kinds of insane lightning strikes. This is awesome. Scary, but cool.” He also took footage from his private plane as they flew over Omaha. “The only thing you’re seeing is rooftops of some of these buildings. Bridges gone,” he said. “A lot of good people here, including my sisters, they’ve been hit hard by the flooding. So let’s hope for the best.” Indeed. Maybe he and Donald can make that their first stop? [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

5 Stars Who Got Stranded In The Snowpocalypse

The worst part about the snowpocalypse was that no one was prepared for it. If I had known that Ed Westwick was going to be stranded at the airport in Iceland for 48 hours, I would have been waiting there to “entertain” him. But alas, the “Gossip Girl” bad boy “walked into the duty-free shop and bought a bottle of vodka.” Swoon. He was stranded when his flight to London got snowed in and according to a spy, “he looked like hell.” That’s my kind of hell. [NY Post]

But Westwick wasn’t the only celeb who got stranded in the snowpocalypse, catch the others after the jump! Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How I Almost Died In This Weekend’s Blizzard

Yesterday I almost died. Not in a “life flashing before me” kind of way – but in a cold, painful, this-blizzard-totally-sucks kind of way. I got stuck in the Snowpocalypse.

You know, the Snowpocalypse—the weekend storm that’s currently blanketing the East Coast. I spent Christmas in Philadelphia, DJing an annual Christmas night party. Yesterday morning when we woke up, my friends and I decided that we would try and beat the impending blizzard and make our way home to New York. Only we didn’t beat the blizzard. We drove right into it. Keep reading »
