Carrie Prejean: we're up to eight sex tapes now.

More new on the Carrie Prejean front. Apparently we're up to there being eight different sex tapes now. Plus there are some 30 nude photographs around as well.

Further, contrary to what some have been saying, she was not 17 when the tapes were made: rather, she was 20 according to the recipient of one of them. That makes it much more likely that they will in fact be released as porno tapes for general viewing.

Not that this really excites us on a sexual level, but we do enjoy the shaedenfreude of someone holding herslef up as having such a strong Christian faith that she's rather a Miss Goody two shoes having an issue like this dogging her.

Stefania Fernandez

Stefania Fernandez was crowned the Miss Universe 2009 last night at a ceremony in the Bahamas. The gala was broadcast by NBC to a global audience estimated at 1 billion people.

Stefania Fernandez is the sixth Venezuelan to win the title in the 59 years of its history and the second in a row.

Fernandez won the Miss Venezuela title in September 2008, just as she turned 18: before that she had been Miss Trujillo.

Jenny Anniston's New Man

Looks like we've found out who Jennifer Anniston's new man is then: Paul Sculfor.

He's a Brit, an ex- brickie, a current coke user and a male model.

So we can see what she sees in him, but what on earth does Paul Sculfor see in her?

The Treasurer and The Cocaine

Oh dear me. Thomas Ravenel does seem to have dropped himself in the deep doo doo.

The FBI have charged him with the distribution of less than 500 grammes of cocaine. That's really not the sort of thing that the State Treasurer of South Carlina is supposed to do.

One important point is the "less than" 500 grammes. If it were over it would be a mandatory 5 year sentence if found guilty. Wonder is the amount got massaged at all? Thomas Ravenel is, after all, one of the scions of a major political family in the State.

A Rod and the Blonde

So as the New York Post has been able to find out we now know the name of the blonde stepping out with Alex Rodriguez.

She's Joslyn Noel Morse.

A lap dancer/ stripper who wants to become a Playboy Bunny.

Isn't that a vaulting ambition for a 30 year old woman?

Nude Car Wash

There is a certain popularity about topless car washes, to be sure. The polishing action has something to recommend it, so I'm told. But to combine it with lapdancing seems to be going quite a bit further:

A nude car wash offering an X-rated sideshow and topless cleaning in Australia's tropical Queensland state has been given the all-clear after police and officials said they were powerless to scrub it.    

The Bubbles 'n' Babes car wash in Brisbane prompted a flood of complaints with a topless car wash for A$55 ($45) and a nude car wash with X-rated lap-dance service for A$100. "If it was approved for a car wash then I can't imagine how we can stop them," Lord Mayor Campbell Newman told a council meeting with worried local lawmakers.    

Professional car washes have boomed in most cities with drought-stricken Australians banned from washing their own cars due to tough water restrictions.

Can't see the attraction myself, I hate car washes.

Judges, Eh?

Yes, we know, judges really do have a reputation for being slightly other worldly. Referrin to hte Arctic Monkeys as teenyboppers beat combo perhaps. Thing is, the reputation isn't undeserved:

A British judge admitted on Wednesday he was struggling to cope with basic terms like "Web site" in the trial of three men accused of inciting terrorism via the Internet.    

Judge Peter Openshaw broke into the questioning of a witness about a Web forum used by alleged Islamist radicals.


"The trouble is I don't understand the language. I don't really understand what a Web site is," he told a London court during the trial of three men charged under anti-terrorism laws.

The lovely thing about it all is that judges in the UK are actually issued with wifi enabled laptops upon which to do their work.

I'm Not Dying? Damn!

Not everyone who gets told by their doctors that they're not dying actually likes to hear the news:

A British man who went on a wild spending spree after doctors said he only had a short time to live wants compensation because the diagnosis was wrong and he is now healthy -- but broke.

John Brandrick, 62, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two years ago and told that he would probably die within a year.


He quit his job, sold or gave away nearly all his possessions, stopped paying his mortgage and spent his savings dining out and going on holiday.

Brandrick was left with little more than the black suit, white shirt and red tie that he had planned to be buried in when it emerged a year later that his suspected "tumor" was no more than a non-life threatening inflammation of the pancreas.

Sure, it's better than dying but something of a problem, don't you think?

Falling in Shit, Smelling of Roses

There's that lovely old phrase, if you fell in shit you'd come up smelling of roses. Certainly happened to this woman:

A Chinese woman survived a plunge from a sixth-floor balcony thanks to a convenient pile of excrement which broke her fall, local media said.    

The accident happened when the woman was hanging out laundry on Monday in Nanjing, capital of the eastern province of Jiangsu, the Kuaibao tabloid said on its Web site (


"Workers happened to be emptying the building's septic tank, which had not been tended for a long time and had regularly blocked sewage pipes," the newspaper said.


"She probably stretched out too far and fell ... right on to a 20 cm-thick heap of excrement."

The woman suffered only slight injuries, the newspaper said.

Of course, we never hear about those who fall when they're not cleaning the tanks out.

Daddy's Diamonds

Or, in fact, Daddy is a Diamond. Or not in fact in this case.

A German woman's plan to turn her dead father's ashes into a diamond was thwarted Tuesday by her grandmother.    

A district court in Wiesbaden ruled the 19-year-old could not take the cremated remains to Switzerland where a company creates synthetic diamonds from ashes.


"The daughter of the deceased could not provide sufficient proof that it was his final wish to be pressed into a diamond," the court in western Germany said, ruling in favor of his 86-year-old mother.    

The court said the daughter's views on the care of the remains took precedence over the wishes of the dead man's mother but ruled that any decision had to be in accordance with the expressed wishes of the deceased.

It's pretty weird to want to turn someone into a diamond but I think I can understand it. What I don't get though is why the objection to it? I mean, this all takes place after the cremation, after all. Not going to do anyone any harm now, is it?
