Wimbledon 2011: Petra Kvitova will FaceSharapova in the Final

Petra Kvitova rode her big serve right into the Wimbledon final, defeating Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 3-6, 6-2 Thursday.

Petra Kvitova hit nine aces, including three in a row in the final game of the first set, to reach her first Grand Slam final. She will face either Maria Sharapova.

Petra Kvitova is the first left-handed player to reach the Wimbledon final since Martina Navratilova in 1994. Navratilova, who won the title nine times and was in the crowd on Thursday, and Ann Jones (in 1969) are the only ones to win the championship dish at the All England Club.

Wimbledon 2011: Online tool to turn down volume of grunting

Radio listeners in the United Kingdom won't be subjected to loud shrieking coming from their wireless sets during Wimbledon. The BBC recently unveiled a new program that allows listeners of live Wimbledon broadcasts to minimize the sound of on-court grunting.

This week, BBC's Radio 5 released NetMix, an online tool that gives viewers the option of decreasing the volume of the sound on the court relative to commentary provided by analysts. The site boasts that NetMix can change the level of "the crowd, base-line, grunting and ball," as if people care about any but the third.

The program came out days after the head of Wimbledon said he would like to see less grunting in the women's game. Listeners on Thursday, for instance, could adjust the volume of on-court sound in matches featuring two of the loudest grunters on the WTA, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova.

Robert Brun, the head of audio and music technology for BBC radio told London's Telegraph newspaper:

"Having known for a long time that broadcasters have a problem with balancing the ambient sounds of a sports match with the commentary, we felt we had to develop a tool which put the control back into the hands of the audience.

"The BBC receives lots of complaints from the public regarding sound balance — with many of them wanting the sound of the commentators turned up and the noise for a match turned down. Wimbledon was a clear choice to launch this product for as there are always so many comments about the amount of grunting from the players."

This could be a "be careful what you wish for" situation. Turning down Azarenka's interminable, 95-decibel grunts is a no-brainer. Having to listen to certain broadcasters may not be any better, though.(S)

Selena Gomez:“The problem is, I don’t eat right, Not Pregnant!"

As Selena Gomez’s romance with Justin Bieber heats up, a sudden trip to the hospital had fans wondering what’s really going on.

When Selena Gomez checked into a Burbank, Calif., hospital complaining of headaches and nausea (and reportedly receiving blood pressure tests) on June 9, the rumor mill went into overdrive: Was the Disney darling living the dreams of millions of young women around the world — by carrying The Biebs’ love child?

It wasn’t much of a leap, given her symptoms and the way the teen heartthrobs have been all over each other everywhere they go — especially during their recent PDA-filled afternoon in the Hawaiian surf over Memorial Day weekend. No, it looks as if a baby Bieber will have to wait.

UFOs Filmed above BBC Building in London

UFOs above BBC London. A new video about UFO has emerged purporting to show 'a mothership and its fleet' zipping around in the clouds above a BBC building in West London.

Perhaps the group of intergalactic travellers was hoping for some coverage from Auntie.

UFOs? In the video, three fast-moving white dots streak across the London skyline

Instead they were caught on camera by a passer-by, and at least one other person who can be seen filming or taking pictures on his camera phone while the video is filmed.

As the camera is pointed upwards, over the BBC's Yalding House, three white dots flash across the sky at great speed in a triangle formation, they are very quickly followed by two similar sized white dots.

As the camera pans down again, two people on the opposite side of the road can also been seen watching events unfold above them.

Then one larger, bright and more slow moving disc-shaped white object appears, circles around briefly and zips off.

Mothership: After the five white dots are seen whizzing around, one larger brighter disc-shaped white object movers around slowly in the sky

By this time a crowd of five people have gathered on the street corner to observe. A Scottish man's voice is heard off camera saying the word 'UFO'.

Shortly after another Scottish man's voice is heard saying: 'Are you getting that up there? I couldn't see before because the sun as flashing by.'

Far be it from us to suggest that the video is a hoax, but were people so minded then that part of London is home to a great many production houses offering both the expertise and facilities to mock up a convincing video.

Another similar video posted by alymc01 appears to have been filmed from the office of The Mill, a company which creates visual effects for the film industry.

UFOs above BBC London

But as the person who circulated the footage wrote in order to circumvent the cynical naysayers: 'If you believe it's easy photoshopped why don't you make a video & show us all.'

The video was originally uploaded to YouTube by 31-year-old user alymc01, but it has been more widely circulated by a user called EllasVirgo, who on his YouTube profile describes himself as a farmer from Australia.

Virgo's YouTube channel is filled with space, asteroid and UFO-related snippets, including videos with titles such as 'More proof Nasa is lying'.

In the brief text accompanying the video Virgo wrote: 'UFOs Over London BBC Radio 1 Building.

'Right - took over a week to get it....but finally managed to get these critters on camera on a clear day, and even get a close-up

'It seems to be attracting quite a crowd now when they appear '

Can anyone explain what on earth these lights are please?'

The video was uploaded on June 26 and, given that Virgo says it took more than a week to source, and that he states in the description that it was shot on a Friday in June, the film was made on either June 3, 10 or 17.

Pippa Middleton Wearing Nude Tights in Paris

The day after the wedding, Pippa Middleton stepped out with a gray leather Modalu bag that sold out almost instantly. She's done wonders for High Street brands such as Zara.

Earlier this month, Jezebel pointed out that Pippa Middleton committed "the ultimate pantyhose sin" while Pippa Middleton was spotted wearing nude tights in Paris, "no less."

And somehow, the skin-toned hosiery trend is catching on! The Telegraph reports that sales of nude tights has "risen by up to 85 percent in the past year."

The shocking increase has been attributed to a hesitancy to jump from opaques in the winter months to bare legs in the spring, as nude stockings offer an in-between of sorts. A second, more health-conscious reason for the once-taboo (possibly still taboo) trend: "[It] may also be driven in part by fears over sun exposure. Malignant melanoma is Britain's second most common cancer in 15 to 34-year-olds." (R)

Video: Famous Vancouver riot kiss happened

It didn't take long for the Internet to find out what the Vancouver riot kissing couple's names were and it wasn't long after that before their worldwide media tour began, to tell the tale of the iconic smooch.

In a world of social media, it's also not surprising that new videos are being unearthed daily showing different scenes of the riots from all angles of the city.

One such video has been discovered that dramatically shows exactly how Alex Thomas was injured and how she and her boyfriend, Scott Jones, were knocked to the ground. After the story broke last week, some were skeptical of the photo, saying it was staged, but as you'll see in the most compelling video yet, it was far from it:

Vancouver riot kiss, On NBC's "Today" show last week, Australian native Jones said he was in Vancouver as a "tourist" and wanted to see the reaction of the city whether the Canucks won or lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. "I didn't think we were in danger down there until the riot police came along," he said.

Why the kiss in the middle of such chaos? "I was just trying to calm her down. It was pretty scary for her," said Jones.

"It seemed like the best thing to do."

Vancouver riot kiss, The couple have now hired a PR firm to handle all of their media and endorsement matters. The worldwide exposure from the kiss photo going viral could make them worth upwards of $10 million. The publicity may also help Jones kick start an acting/stand-up comedy career, of which their new agent said, "It could set him up for life, if he's as good as Robin Williams or Bill Cosby." (S)

Miranda Lambert to perform on NBC's `The Voice'

Miranda Lambert is stepping into new husband Blake Shelton's territory. On next Wednesday's season finale of NBC's hit singing contest, "The Voice," Miranda Lambert will perform a duet with the finalist who was on Shelton's team, Dia Frampton.

Lambert, a Grammy winner for her single "The House That Built Me," said Miranda Lambert was "thrilled" to be part of "The Voice."

"It's been a joy watching my husband grow so attached to his team. Truthfully, I am a little jealous that I am not a coach myself. I can't wait to be a part of it," she said.

Country superstars Miranda Lambert and Shelton were married last month.

'Sea Monster' Washes Up In China

A massive sea monster creature has washed up on a beach in Guangdong, China. So badly decayed it cannot be positively identified, the "sea monster" is 55 feet long and weights approximately 4.5 tons, according to The Sun.

Upon seeing a photo of the carcass, three marine biology experts — Scott Baker of Oregon State University Marine Mammal Institute, Bill Perrin, senior scientist for marine mammals at the National Marine Fisheries Service, and Bob Brownell, senior scientist for international protected resources with the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration's Fisheries Service — all think it's a whale.

Based on its throat grooves, "[we agree] that  sea monster's a balaenopterid," Baker told Life's Little Mysteries. "Judging from the reported size of 55 ft., maybe a fin whale. From the photo, however, it does not really look to be 55 ft., and so might be a smaller balaenopterid, like one of the 'Bryde's' whales."

"We all hope somebody collects the bones and a tissue sample for genetic analysis as recovery of whale carcasses is rare along the coast of China," he added.

The beast is tangled in ropes, and locals theorize that area fisherman once caught it but could not haul it in owing to its gargantuan size. According to The Sun, people have flocked to see the sea monster despite its foul stench.(R)

Potato Chips are Piling on the Pounds

Blame the potato chip. It's the biggest demon behind that pound-a-year weight creep that plagues many of us, a major diet study found. Bigger than soda, candy and ice cream.

And the reason is partly that old advertising cliche: You can't eat just one.

"They're very tasty and they have a very good texture. People generally don't take one or two chips. They have a whole bag," said obesity expert Dr. F. Xavier Pi-Sunyer of the St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York.

What we eat and how much of it we consume has far more impact than exercise and most other habits do on long-term weight gain, according to the study by Harvard University scientists. It's the most comprehensive look yet at the effect of individual foods and lifestyle choices like sleep time and quitting smoking.

The results are in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine.

Weight problems are epidemic. Two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese. Childhood obesity has tripled in the past three decades. Pounds often are packed on gradually over decades, and many people struggle to limit weight gain without realizing what's causing it.

The new study finds food choices are key. The message: Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts. Cut back on potatoes, red meat, sweets and soda.

"There is no magic bullet for weight control," said one study leader, Dr. Frank Hu. "Diet and exercise are important for preventing weight gain, but diet clearly plays a bigger role."

Doctors analyzed changes in diet and lifestyle habits of 120,877 people from three long-running medical studies. All were health professionals and not obese at the start. Their weight was measured every four years for up to two decades, and they detailed their diet on questionnaires.

On average, participants gained nearly 17 pounds over the 20-year period.

For each four-year period, food choices contributed nearly 4 pounds. Exercise, for those who did it, cut less than 2 pounds.

Potato chips were the biggest dietary offender. Each daily serving containing 1 ounce (about 15 chips and 160 calories) led to a 1.69-pound uptick over four years. That's compared to sweets and desserts, which added 0.41 pound.

For starchy potatoes other than chips, the gain was 1.28 pounds. Within the spud group, french fries were worse for the waist than boiled, baked or mashed potatoes. That's because a serving of large fries contains between 500 to 600 calories compared with a serving of a large baked potato at 280 calories.

Soda added a pound over four years. Eating more fruits and vegetables and other unprocessed foods led to less weight gain, probably because they are fiber-rich and make people feel fuller.

For each four-year period, these factors had these effects on weight:

  • An alcoholic drink a day, 0.41-pound increase.
  • Watching an hour of TV a day, 0.31-pound increase.
  • Recently quitting smoking, 5-pound increase.

People who slept more or less than six to eight hours a night gained more weight.

The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and a foundation. Several researchers reported receiving fees from drug and nutrition companies.

"Humans naturally like fat and sweet," said Dr. David Heber, director of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition, who had no role in the study. "That's why we always tell people to eat their fruits and vegetables."

Pi-Sunyer, who also wasn't involved in the research, said the study gives useful advice.

"It's hard to lose weight once you gain it," he said. "Anything that will give people a clue about what might prevent weight gain if they follow through with it is helpful."

The federal government earlier this year issued new dietary guidelines advising people to eat smarter. This month, it ditched the food pyramid — the longtime symbol of healthy eating — in favor of a dinner plate divided into four sections containing fruits, vegetables, protein and grains. (S)

Evan Rachel Wood's

To be honest, Evan Rachel Wood's only stood out to me before as that girl who used to date Marilyn Manson. Part of her problem was that like a ton of other actresses, the "True Blood" star sported shoulder-length (or sometimes longer) locks. Even an occasional color change or two didn't really differentiate her. But with Evan Rachel Wood new 'do, all of that's changed!

Wood wowed at the "True Blood" Season 4 premiere at the ArcLight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood on Tuesday. The 23-year-old showed off a freshly cropped cut. (A gray vest and pants by Dolce & Gabbana, red suspenders, and Jimmy Choo heels completed the look ... but that's a whole other discussion.)

"I'm constantly changing, I'm constantly growing," the actress told E! recently. "I think I'm a little controversial ... I just try and keep some mystery, so hopefully people can't really put their finger on it." Um, they certainly can't now! (S)

Alyssa Campanella Wins Miss USA 2011

Alyssa Campanella, A 21-year-old auburn-haired California model won the Miss USA 2011 crown Sunday night and will represent the nation in this year's Miss Universe pageant.

Alyssa Campanella of Los Angeles topped a field of 51 beauty queens to take the title at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. She strutted across the stage in a blue bikini with white polka dots and a dark turquoise Sherri Hill evening gown with beading on its top.

She also answered a question about legalizing marijuana by saying she didn't think it should be fully legalized as a solution to help ailing economies.

Alyssa Campanella told reporters in a news conference after the pageant that the win validated her decision to quickly move to Los Angeles from New Jersey after losing an apartment.

"The downs happen for a reason," she said. "The path that I'm on now is the path that's been meant to be."

Campanella, a former Miss Teen USA runner-up from 2007, when she represented New Jersey, said she has been competing in pageants since Alyssa Campanella was 15 because of her mom.

Originally from Manalapan, N.J., Alyssa Campanella began modeling at age 16, graduated from high school a year early and received a scholarship to the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, according to her personal website.

Miss Tennessee Ashley Durham was the first runner-up, while contestants from Alabama and Texas placed third and fourth.

Alyssa Campanella replaces Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih. The 25-year-old from Michigan teared up as she walked across the stage for a final goodbye.

Rima Fakih:"...I am Muslim-American."

After tonight, the next Miss USA will likely face more questions about her beauty secrets than whether she's tied to a terrorist organization.

That's because the reign of Rima Fakih, the current title holder and first Muslim-American to wear the crown, will end when a panel of judges selects her successor at the 2011 Miss USA Pageant in Las Vegas.

During her tenure, Rima Fakih, 25, who was born in Lebanon, repeatedly faced questions about her ethnic and religious identity. That included responding to unfounded rumors circulating over the Internet that she had family connections to Hezbollah, a Lebanese Shiite group that the U.S. designates as a terrorist organization.

Fakih flatly denied the allegation, calling it the product of a blogger who had made it up "out of her prejudiced mind."

"I'd like to say I'm American first, and I am an Arab-American," Rima Fakih said. "I am Lebanese-American, and I am Muslim-American."

Fakih not only stood up for herself, she lent moral and vocal support to another Muslim beauty contestant, Great Britain's Shanna Bukhari who received a death threat because of her stated goal to represent her country at the Miss Universe pageant.

"Be fearless, be proud of who you are and no matter what anyone tells you by using religion as a tool against you, don't let that affect you," said Fakih, who sent Bukhari a charm bracelet to show her support.

Not all of the pesky questions posed to Rima Fakih were about religion, however. There were those pictures of her standing next to a stripper's pole circulating around the Internet that Fakih had to explain.

Those were taken during a radio station competition in which no clothes were removed, Rima Fakih said.

I believe in no regrets: Amanda Bynes Tweet

Confession: Amanda Bynes is easily one of our favorite celebrities on Twitter. She often posts "sexy pictures" of herself with captions like, "Me in sunglasses!" or details her preference in guys. Sorry men with kids, you don't stand a chance with the "Easy A" star.

We also loved that time she decided to teach Twitter some of her very own vocabulary, like super boo, which means your one true love.

In an interview with People, Amanda Bynes opens up about her sometimes TMI tweets. She tells the magazine, "I believe in no regrets. You say what you feel because you felt it at the moment."

Amanda Bynes continues, "It's sort of like what I would tell a reporter if I were doing an interview. You kind of have to let people know a little bit about you. And once you've been in the business for a long time, people kind of know stuff about your life."

With over 73,000 followers reading her tweets, Amanda Bynes says she tries (and fails) to keep things professional. "I don't tell anybody anything too personal, but I say stuff I would say in an interview."

Fret not, Amanda Bynes followers. The actress, who retired and promptly unretired a year ago, says, "I don't like talking about [dating], but when I'm getting married, I'll be open about that."

We can't wait, Amanda Bynes. We can't wait. (S)

Gay Husbands Become an Inspiration in Fran Drescher New TV Show

Fran Drescher didn't have to look far for inspiration for her new TV Land show Happily Divorced, which premieres June 15. The sitcom, about a woman whose husband turns out to be gay, is actually based on her own experience.

After her marriage of 21 years ended, Fran Drescher's husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, came out of the closet.

"He had already been living a gay life away from me after we divorced, and he said, 'I don't want you to be shocked. I'm dating men,' " she said.

The revelation didn't entirely surprise Fran Drescher. "During our marriage he had told me he might be bisexual, but he wanted to stay married," she says. "By the time he told me, I had survived uterine cancer. Nothing could shake me."

Over the years, the two of them have rebuilt their relationship as friends. "It's great that we had the ability and the wisdom to reinvent our relationship. All those years weren't for nothing," Fran Drescher says. "We're very tight. We're best friends."

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Kanye...

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, the twin pair who have been acting since they were in diapers, celebrate their 25th birthday today.

Originally sharing the role of Michelle Tanner in the TV series Full House, the Olsen twins now have moved on to the world of fashion, starting their own clothing line for girls between the ages of 4 and 14.

Mary Kate, the younger (by 1 minute) than Ashley Olsen of the star duo, has often been the subject of negative media-hype, but the most recent rumor that is floating around the tabloid information highway has the 25 year old romantically linked with rapper Kanye West.

According to reports, the unlikely pair (Olsen and West) were sighted smooching at Kanye’s 34th birthday bash in NYC in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Could this be a legit romance or is Kanye West attempting to draw attention to himself as he has so successfully done in the past?

Karina Smirnoff-Brad Penny has Set a Wedding Date

Karina Smirnoff has set a wedding date. Smirnoff and her fiancee, Detroit Tigers pitcher Brad Penny, will wed on January 21, 2012, People reported Tuesday.

While Karina Smirnoff revealed the date of her upcoming nuptials to People, the 33-year-old Dancing with the Stars dancer wouldn't disclose the exact location of the destination wedding, which will take place someplace in the Caribbean.

"I have a lot of family and friends that live in Europe and Israel, and Brad has a big family in Oklahoma," Smirnoff said. "It's going to be a very diverse, colorful crowd."

However, Karina Smirnoff still hasn't reached a decision on another important element of the ceremony: her wedding dress.

"We're down to six, which is better than 20," she told People. "You always have to look at the glass half full."

"I'm very open to the colors, the setting, the flowers. I'm very easy... the only thing I do want is that big dress with the train. Even if it's just me walking in a dress, I'm all good."

Karina Smirnoff began dating Penny in October 2009, shortly after she and fellow Dancing with the Stars dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy called off their engagement and ended their relationship. Penny then proposed a year later in October 2010. (S)

Eliza Dushku Will Guest Star on 'White Collar'

Eliza Dushku will take her beauty and sex appeal to the USA network for a guest appearance in the hit show White Collar.

White Collar follows a con man and FBI agent who go around solving crimes. TV Guide has dished some spoilers to fans on what can be expected of Eliza Dushku's character on the show.

It seems the con man, Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) recently separated from his on screen love affair. This will coincide with Dushku's short lived appearance.

Sports fans have had their eye on Eliza Dushku for some time now. She is currently living with her boyfriend, former Lakers star Rick Fox.

Eliza Dushku was also up for a CBS pilot that sounded like an amazing idea. The show revolved around the life of Colin Cowherd. The sports commentator would have been played by Damon Wayans. The role of his Michelle Beadle counterpart went to Eliza.

Similar Painting Mona Lisa Nude
