Denzel Washington just can’t put a foot wrong as far as we’re concerned and Rosario Dawson looked amazing showing off her go on forever legs.  Chris Pine looked kinda dapper in his brown pinstripes and bright paisley tie.

Alexandria Mills from America wins Miss World 2010

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Miss America Alexandria Mills won the Miss World 2010 crown in the 60th annual contest held in China.

The blonde teenager from Kentucky was a surprise winner, beating 114 other women to win the coveted title. Emma Wareus of Botswana was runner up and Adriana Vasini of Venezuela  third.

Alexandria is a vegetarian and enjoys traveling, photography and playing the French horn and hopes to become a teacher someday. Her personal motto is “The best things in life are worth waiting for, fighting for, believing in, and just never letting go of it.”

There was a lot of speculation that 22 year old Miss India World Mansavi Mamgai is already a model; but she failed to finish among the top 20 contestants at Miss World.

Rally for Sanity; SNL comedy legend Father Guido Sarducci

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Father Guido Sarducci led the “faithful” at today’s anti-rally of comedy to an estimate 60,000 crowd.  The Saturday Night Live character, Sarducci the pragmatic, chain-smoking priest with tinted eyeglasses was made famous by SNL-er Don Novello.

Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert emake light of Glenn Beck efforts on the National Mall, and have called their faithful for a “sanity” rally combining laughter, political activism and a call to civility where Ozzy Osbourne and many other celebrities entertained the crowd.

The O’Jays performed “Love Train”, which maybe not so coincidentally was one of  John McCain’s (GOP candidate) presidential campaign tour songs.

The crowds held signs that read “Every word on this sign is spelled correctly” and “I hate signs,” said one sign.

People in favor of decriminalizing and legalizing marijuana are out in full force too. CNN reports many seniors who depend on the herb for a long list of ailments including easing the effects of chemotherapy and acute illnesses are hopeful that the natural herbal medication will be easier to obtain.

Organizers insisted the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear wasn’t about politics but a booster rally of sorts for fans of the shows to come together.

Comedy Central’s park permit puts the crowd .

Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood Announce Nashville Concert for Flood Relief

At a press conference held this morning, Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood confirmed they will perform a concert to benefit flood relief efforts in Middle Tennessee at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on December 17.   The superstar indicated that if there is a demand, he will add extra performances, as well as call on his famous friends such as Steve Wariner to serve as surprise guests.

“We decided to do the show the day we saw the footage of the floods,” Garth said. “We’re lucky to have a dual residency, so you’re talking to a guy that’s from here, but saw it from outside. As doubly painful as it was to watch it from outside, now you’re doubly proud to get to help.

“This is about two citizens standing up with the rest of the citizens,” Garth adds. “We’re following in the footsteps. There were a lot of artists that came out and did their thing, and all we’re doing is trying to continue their example that they have set as artists and trying to continue the example that the citizens of this state have done.”

The tickets will be $25 plus handling, with 100 percent of the ticket sales going to those in need.  Ticket information will be released at 12:00 PM (CT) on Wednesday, November 3, for what many hope will be the first of several shows.

Garth, who performed several shows in California to benefit the victims of the wildfires a few years ago, is retired except for his five-year deal with the Wynn Encore in Las Vegas to do occasional performances.

Porn star Capri Anderson cashing in on Charlie Sheen escapade.

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Within hours of being outed as Charlie Sheen‘s  mystery woman hiding naked in the ravaged Plaza Hotel suite, Capri Anderson who has also used the names Christina Walsh and Alexis Capri, a 22-year-old hard-core porn star has been quick to cash in on her infamy.

Anderson was reportedly locked inside a bathroom while Sheen trashed the room and has already hired herself a high-profile lawyer and will press charges against Sheen for allegedly holding her in his suite against her will, and of course that’s why she was naked!

Photos featuring the porn star, in various states of undress were quickly posted to her ClubCapriAnderson.com website, for media usage.

“When Capri told us the news the day after this happened, we were first and foremost concerned about her safety and well being,” said Mark, the VP of the porn company which operates her website, Medium Pimpin, in a statement posted to the website.  “Capri and the rest of the team here at Medium Pimpin feel that this is now a great opportunity where she was actually in the right place at the right time,” Mark said.

“With all the mainstream press and searches Capri is going to be getting in the upcoming days,” said Medium Pimpin President, Kevin, it would be wrong for Anderson and anyone else not to take advantage of the situation.

“It would just be money left on the table otherwise,” he said.

Anderson would not be the first woman — or porn star — to use being at the center of a celebrity scandal to gain 15 minutes of fame.

Mr Kirchner, 60, who had been operated on in September for heart problems served as president from 2003 to 2007 and faced some criticism within Argentina for appearing to get around presidential term limits by stepping aside for each other.

His wife, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, is the current president of the country.

It has been rumored that Mr Kirchner was to stand for election again in 2011.

Mr Kirchner died with his wife by his side after being admitted to hospital in El Calafate and no official statement was issued from the Argentine presidency, but an official medical bulletin is expected later.

Jeffrey Landrigan’s Last Words before Execution: Boomer Sooner

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Death row inmate Jeffrey Landrigan, 50, who was convicted of the murder of Chester Dean Dyer in 1989, was executed by legal injection at 6.26 am this morning.

Landrigan had been granted a stay of execution over concerns about the legality of the substances used to kill him.  An unnamed British company supplied one of the chemicals used in lethal injections, it has been revealed as the drug has not been available in the US and the shortage began slowing executions in the spring.   His lawyers argued that the drug – sodium thiopental – might not meet U.S. standards and his planned execution violated his constitutional rights to be free from cruel and unusual punishment.

But it was cleared to proceed after Supreme Court justices voted 5-4 in favour of overturning the federal judge’s order postponing the execution.

A prison official said Landrigan’s last words were, “Boomer Sooner.”

Landrigan, though executed in Arizona, hailed from Bartlesville, Oklahoma and was a fan of the Sooners.  It would appear until the end.

Charlie Sheen ends up Hospitalized After Drink and Drugs Rampage with Prostitute

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Actor Charlie Sheen was arrested after trashing a suite at the New York’s Plaza Hotel early Tuesday morning.

Police say the actor was accompanied by a prostitute and was naked, drunk and high on Coke.

The repeated stints in substance abuse and anger-management programs don’t seem to be doing Charlie much good.  He broke up the furniture and damaged a chandelier and his publicist is claiming that this stunt was due to an allergic reaction to his medication.

Sheen was briefly hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation before jetting back to Los Angeles.

One thing is clear and that is that Rehab isn’t doing him a lot of good.  He has been treated for substance abuse multiple times; so why do he and others seem to relapse time and time again?

There is no use in rehab if as soon as patients walk out the door they drop into their local drug dealers for another fix.
