Bin Laden Would've Been Spared If He Was Naked . . . He Hadn't Left the Room In Five Years . . . and He Forbid His Kids From Joining Al Qaeda:

More and more details have been coming out about the raid on OSAMA BIN LADEN'S compound. Here are some of the most interesting new highlights. --Nudity would've saved bin Laden's life. According to a congressional aide, if bin Laden had been naked, it would've been clear he didn't have a weapon or suicide vest, so he would've been spared. --But when they got there, he was in pajamas. So . . . shot in the head. --Bin Laden hadn't left the room in five years. When bin Laden's wife was interrogated after the raid, she said they hadn't left one room in the compound for FIVE YEARS. --Bin Laden banned his children from joining Al Qaeda. In his will, bin Laden specifically names his two last wishes: That his wives don't remarry, and that his children never join Al Qaeda. --He wrote the will in December of 2001. And in it, he predicts that if he does get killed, it will be because of, quote, "treachery" of the Al Qaeda members around him. --Some documents with NASTY terror plans were found in the compound. Some of the papers that were taken from the compound show Al Qaeda was considering attacks on key U.S. cities and trains. --In fact, they were apparently targeting U.S. railroads for the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 . . . which is this September.

Bin Laden's Compound is Quickly Becoming a Tourist Attraction:

It's hard to blame people for wanting to check out OSAMA BIN LADEN'S compound in Pakistan. If I happened to be hanging out in northern Pakistan right now, I'm thinking my curiosity would take me there. --And according to all reports, the compound is already starting to become a tourist attraction. --It's drawing people who were bin Laden SUPPORTERS . . . and people who are thrilled that he's gone. --An Associated Press photographer even caught a woman taking photos of her daughter standing in front of the gate of the compound. (--You can see those photos here.) --Finally, yesterday, the police secured off the area to keep people from being able to walk up to the compound during the investigation.--Some bin Laden supporters have also latched on to the area in the North Arabian Sea where bin Laden's body was buried at sea. Apparently, they're calling it "the Martyr's Sea."

Did Bristol Palin Get Plastic Surgery?

BRISTOL PALIN may have put all that money she gets for telling kids not to have sex to good use . . . on PLASTIC SURGERY. --Bristol showed up at an event in New York City Tuesday with a new look that included a much slimmer face. (--Check out the before-and-after here.) --A plastic surgery expert told "People" magazine, quote, "She seems to have had liposuction of her entire neck with a focus under her chin, which has produced a much more defined jaw line and lower facial area." (Washington Post)

George Clooney's Girlfriend Gets Naked for PETA:

There are a lot of things you can harp on PETA for. But they also do a lot of good. And one of the best things they do is get celebrities to GO NAKED. --The latest is GEORGE CLOONEY'S sexy Italian girlfriend, ELISABETTA CANALIS. And they didn't just release one photo of her like they usually do. They dropped a whole photo shoot's worth on us. (--Sadly, all of Elisabetta's naughty parts are covered . . . and thus, they remain a mystery to all of us but George. You can see the video of the photo shoot . . . with any naughty bits blurred.)

Rihanna's Cleavage Was Censored Out of a Perfume Ad in Kuwait:

Print ads for RIHANNA'S new perfume Reb'l Fleur show her in a robe that's open enough to display some major skin. Well, that kind of thing doesn't fly in the Middle East. --Someone in Kuwait snapped a picture of the version of the ad that's running there, and it's pretty obvious that they used Photoshop to close her robe. (--Check out the two pics here.) (--Didn't we LIBERATE these people?) (E! Online)
And Now . . . Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Tops The World's Sexiest Women List:

"Transformers 3" minx ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY already tops the "Maxim" magazine Hot 100 list. And yesterday, she added another notch to her belt. put her at the top of their World's Sexiest Women list. Her "Transformers" predecessor MEGAN FOX came in at #4.

--Here's the Top 10 . . .

#2.) Katy Perry

#3.) Rihanna

#4.) Megan Fox

#5.) Olivia Wilde

#6.) Brooklyn Decker

#7.) Marisa Miller

#8.) Kelly Brook

#9.) Nicole Scherzinger

#10.) Russian model Irina Shayk, who you'd know as the chick on the cover of this year's "Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition" (--You can see the complete list, one entry at a time, here. Or, if you scroll down, you can see the entire list all at once.) (--"Glee" minx Dianna Agron was nowhere to be found on the "Maxim" list, but she came in at #81 for FHM. This time it was her co-star Naya Rivera who got the shaft . . . while Lea Michele came in pretty high on both lists.) (--And for those of you with a "royal" fixation, yes Kate Middleton made this list too. She's #39 on the FHM list; but she ranked higher with Maxim at #26.)

Adele Says She'd Have Sex With Rihanna:

British pop minx ADELE has a dirty little secret. You know RIHANNA? Adele would TOTALLY DO HER. (!!!) She says, quote, "If Rihanna wanted me, I'd do it with her. She's hot." --Adele is straight . . . but something happened when she saw Rihanna on Britain's "X Factor" last year. She says, quote, "She had pinstripe flares on. She whipped them off and there were her stunning thighs. --"I said to all my girlfriends: 'Are you feeling a bit gay right now?'"

Randy Quaid Once Asked Chevy Chase for Bail Money . . . And Chevy Refused:

RANDY and EVI QUAID were guests at some low-rent Canadian variety show Wednesday night . . . where they revealed that they reached out to CHEVY CHASE last year for bail money . . . and he REFUSED. --The host asked the Quaids what Chevy is like, and Randy replied, quote, "He didn't bail me out." --Then Evi told the story of how they went through Warner Brothers to get Chevy's phone number, then called him and got his answering machine. --He did get back to them, but through his lawyers . . . who told the Quaids, quote, "Chevy won't bail you out, although Chevy misses you." (--For those of you who don't understand the connection, Chevy and Randy were in the "Vacation" movies together.) (--Here's video of the interview, along with a few seconds of a musical performance by Randy. The sound quality isn't the best.)

GISELE BUNDCHEN is the World's Top-Earning Model, according to a new list by "Forbes" magazine. They say she banked $45 MILLION over the past year. --HEIDI KLUM finished a distant second with $20 million . . . less than HALF of Gisele's take. (--And remember, Heidi is executive producer of the "Project Runway" empire.) --KATE MOSS came in third, with $13.5 million. (--You can check out the rest of the list in annoying slideshow format here. It's doubly annoying because you have to click through TWO slides to get to the next person. And you probably won't know the other names, so it's not really worth digging below the Top 3.)

Ted Williams . . . The Homeless Guy with the Golden Voice . . . Is Back in Rehab:

So whatever happened to TED WILLIAMS . . . the homeless guy with the "golden voice" who seemed to be on the fast track to redemption and stardom? Well, as of yesterday, he was heading back to rehab. --Ted's rep said he was checking himself back into the Origins Recover Center in Texas . . . which is the clinic he bailed on back in January. A book deal and reality show have been put on hold while he once again tries to straighten up.

Charlie Sheen Says He's Relieved to be Done with His Live Show . . . And Yet He's Also Talking About Taking it to Australia and Europe:

CHARLIE SHEEN called in to an Australian radio station yesterday, and admitted he's, quote, "relieved" to be done with his "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour. --He said, quote, "I think the tour was overbooked and it went on too long. It wasn't a question of my fatigue factor but I had to keep digging a little deeper each night in the new cities to remind myself that it was new for them." --But Charlie is thinking about revamping the show and taking it overseas. He said, quote, "Why don't I take this thing on the road to Australia, parts of Europe, parts of Asia. --"If I pick out six cities over two weeks and if it wasn't about violent torpedoes and truth seeking but more about an evening with Charlie Sheen, if I told people what to expect maybe they wouldn't heckle me like the drunk clowns that they are." --In Other Sheen-Anigans: Video surfaced yesterday of Charlie taking batting practice at a baseball field in Denver last week. Former Major League picture TODD ZEILE was on the mound, and Charlie parked one over the right field fence. --Then he hung out for a while with a local team that was practicing there, and gave them five cases of balls. (--Here's video of the home run.)

Hines Ward Was Mistakenly Handcuffed in L.A. Yesterday Morning:

Pittsburgh Steelers receiver and "Dancing With the Stars" stud HINES WARD was HANDCUFFED in Los Angeles early yesterday morning . . . but it turned out to be a mistake. --I know what you're thinking . . . but this wasn't one of those LAPD white cop / black suspect "mistakes". The mistake was made by Hines' girlfriend . . . who was also cuffed. --Here's the deal: The unidentified woman had some kind of "incident" with a valet, which resulted in her calling the police and reporting her car stolen. --After the incident was cleared up and her car was returned to her, she failed to call police and cancel the report. --At about 2:00 A.M. yesterday morning, cops saw the vehicle and pulled it over. According to some reports, they approached the car with their GUNS DRAWN. But the woman was able to clear things up by proving it was her car. --A police spokesman says Hines was VERY cooperative and understanding. --He's definitely NOT making a big deal out of this. He posted a message online yesterday saying, quote, "The incident in the news that involved me getting pulled over. --"I want everyone to know that this was a complete misunderstanding. The police were just doing their job. Apologies were made and it's now in the past. Moving forward."

And you can see the new Red Band Trailer showing on the official site here.) (--"Hobo With a Shotgun" has been playing On Demand on cable systems for a while now, and I can honestly say it's AMAZING. It's utterly and completely mental, but in the best possible way. See it!)

Johnny Depp Admits That the Second and Third "Pirates of the Caribbean" Movies Don't Make Sense:

The first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie was meant to be a stand-alone film. But after its mega-success, Disney decided to turn it into a trilogy. --A lot of people think they just ended up making a MESS out of it. And JOHNNY DEPP is one of those people. And apparently, even director GORE VERBINSKI agrees with him. --Johnny tells "Entertainment Weekly", quote, "They had to invent a trilogy out of nowhere. It was plot driven and complicated. --"I remember talking to [Verbinski] at certain points during production of 2 or 3, and saying: 'I don't really know what this means.' He said, 'Neither do I, but let's just shoot it.' This guy is this guy's dad, and this guy was in love with this broad. It was like, 'What?'" --The upcoming, fourth flick, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", is a stand-alone movie . . . and any future sequels will be, too. (--The fourth "Pirates" flick comes out on the 20th of this month.) --In a separate interview, Johnny also revealed that he's shot his cameo for the "21 Jump Street" movie. He said, quote, "It's done. I went in and did my bit and worked with JONAH HILL and CHANNING TATUM. It was fun."

Has Hilary Duff Been Dropped from the Bonnie and Clyde Movie?

TMZ is reporting that HILARY DUFF has been dropped from "The Story of Bonnie & Clyde" . . . and will be replaced by another actress. --There's no word why she was canned, but producers must have really wanted her out, because they still have to pay her AND whoever they get to replace her. TMZ says her successor hasn't been chosen yet. (--This news will no doubt make FAYE DUNAWAY happy. She was vehemently opposed to Hilary Duff taking on the role she played in the 1967 flick "Bonnie & Clyde". In fact, the two of them made the list of the Top Celebrity Feuds of 2010. You can read what they said here.)

The "Home Alone" House Is On the Market for $2.4 Million:

The affected students were offered alternative housing options.

ABC Censored a Joke About Osama Bin Laden on "Happy Endings":

On Wednesday night, ABC cut part of an OSAMA BIN LADEN joke from their new sitcom, "Happy Endings". It wasn't anything controversial . . . it just wouldn't have made sense now that Osama has been captured and killed. (--The episode was filmed several weeks ago.) --Here's the joke: Two characters, a guy and a girl, were talking about their attempts to catch an elusive mouse. The guy said, quote, "He's my bin Laden . . . Jessica bin Laden, a super hot Arab girl I went to college with." --And the woman responded, quote, "She was the one that got away." But when it aired, that part was cut out . . . so you only saw her lips moving. (--You can watch video, here . . .) (--Note: This is not the version that aired, so you won't see her lips moving. What you WILL see is an awkward cut. When ABC put the episode online, they cut her reaction out entirely.)

Lady Gaga's "Judas" Video Is Out . . . And It's Something:

LADY GAGA'S "Judas" video hit the Internet yesterday . . . and it's as epic as a typical Lady Gaga video. (--You can watch it, here.) --But despite all the hype, it's actually not all that extreme on the religious stuff. Yes, Lady Gaga plays Mary Magdalene, sort of, and she's hanging with Jesus and his Apostles. --But it's not exactly historically accurate. In fact, they're a MOTORCYCLE GANG. And the first minute of the video . . . which ultimately clocks in at five-and-a-half minutes . . . is just them riding. --And the religious imagery is trumped by shots of Lady Gaga's crazy costumes . . . Lady Gaga wearing barely any clothes . . . close-ups of Lady Gaga's face . . . and a wild dance party that's lit like it's taking place at a classy miniature golf joint. (--And if you really want to nit-pick, there's also some amusing green-screen action in the shots where she's singing on the motorcycle.)

The Controversy of Lady Gaga's "Judas" Video; A Commentary:

LADY GAGA'S "Judas" video was stirring up controversy before anyone had even seen it. Now that it's out . . . what's the takeaway? --Well, I suppose if you're super-sensitive to religious iconography, you're not going to like this. But then again, it's unlikely that you'd ever be cool with the representation of religious imagery in pop culture. --Personally, now that I've seen the video, I can't see how anyone could take it seriously enough to be genuinely offended by it. It's an over-the-top Lady Gaga video, with somewhat of a religious theme. That's what it is, like it or not. --No matter what Lady Gaga and her detractors say, it really isn't saying anything, positive or negative, about religion. No impressionable kid is going to be ruined by Lady Gaga's "Judas" video.

Lady Gaga Performed On Top of a Giant High Heel on "Oprah":

LADY GAGA performed on "Oprah" yesterday . . . on top of a GIANT HIGH HEEL . . . with what appeared to be a stingray on her head. (???) --She sang a medley of "Born This Way" and "You and I", which included several shout-outs to Oprah and the 25-year run of her show. (--Here's video.)

Lady Gaga's Monster Ball Tour Was the Biggest Tour Ever By a Debut Headlining Artist:

LADY GAGA'S Monster Ball tour, which began all the way back in November of 2009, will FINALLY wrap tonight in Mexico City. --In all, there were 200 concerts that were attended by 2.5 million people, and grossed $227.4 million. says it was the biggest tour EVER by a first-time headlining artist . . . and it's on the cusp of being one of the Top 10 highest grossing tours of all time.


Justin Bieber's Crew Is Threatening to Bail on His Planned Trip to Japan:

TMZ says "many crewmembers" on JUSTIN BIEBER'S tour are refusing to follow the tour to Japan later this month . . . because they're afraid of the "cancer risks" from the nuclear disaster, and are worried that there could be another earthquake. --Supposedly, Justin's manager laid into them . . . saying, quote, "Man the [eff] up and do the right thing by these kids." It's unclear if they've had a change of heart.

The 17-Year-Old Perp Who Egged Justin Bieber in Australia Is in Trouble:

Remember how JUSTIN BIEBER was assaulted with EGGS while performing in Australia last week? Well, that mystery has been solved. --It turns out a 17-year-old boy somehow broke into the venue through the ROOF, and dropped the eggs from above the stage. He was arrested yesterday, and charged with breaking and entering, trespassing and malicious damage. (--Since the boy is a minor, his name was not released. That's lucky for him, because Justin's online army of fans would've absolutely torn him apart. The eggs came close to hitting Justin, but he escaped unscathed.)

President Obama Might Be Calling in a Favor from Justin Bieber:

A 14-year-old girl named Payton Wall got a chance to meet PRESIDENT OBAMA at Ground Zero yesterday. (--Peyton's dad was killed in the 9/11 attacks.) But is she just using the President . . . to get to JUSTIN BIEBER? --Payton said Obama was "really cool" . . . but THIS is what had her MORE excited: She said, quote, "[The President] told us he knows Justin." And supposedly, Obama said she "could meet him some time soon."

We Should All Be Ashamed of the Most Popular Baby Names of 2010:

The Social Security Administration just released its list of the most popular baby names for 2010 . . . and we, as a people, should be ashamed of ourselves. Here are just a few of the reasons why . . .

#1.) The most popular boys' name was Jacob and the most popular girls' name was Isabella. You might recognize those as the name of two of the three main characters from "Twilight".

#2.) And that's not the only "Twilight" influence. The second-biggest gain for a boys' name was Kellan. The actor who plays the vampire Emmett Cullen in the "Twilight" films is KELLAN LUTZ.

#3.) But that's not the worst part. The two names that saw the biggest gains were Maci and Bentley. Why? MACI BOOKOUT is one of the girls on the MTV show "Teen Mom" and her son's name is Bentley.

#4.) And clearly, we've lost respect for the classics. For the first time in 55 years, the name ELVIS didn't make the top 1,000 boys' names.

--The top 10 most popular girls' names are: Isabella, Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Ava, Emily, Abigail, Madison, Chloe, and Mia.

--The top 10 most popular boys' names are: Jacob, Ethan, Michael, Jayden, William, Alexander, Noah, Daniel, Aiden, and Anthony.

And sexual relations caused 4.3%. So between those three, more than one out of nine ruptured aneurysms happens from soda, sex, or defecating. --Some of the other less common causes of ruptures include: 10.6% from drinking coffee . . . 5.4% from nose blowing . . . 2.7% from being startled . . . and 1.3% from being angry. --Drinking alcohol didn't make the list.

Did a Woman Really Have Oral Surgery and Wake Up With an Irish Accent?

We've seen stories like this before and we're ALWAYS skeptical: People who have surgery then wake up speaking in a totally different accent. I don't know . . . just doesn't seem real.

It's an extremely rare syndrome that seems to be triggered by a stroke or brain damage. Less than 100 cases have ever been reported, but it started popping up 70 years ago. --As for Karen, she says she still gets strange reactions even after a year-and-a-half with her new accent . . . but she's gotten used to it and really doesn't mind talking like she's from Ireland. (Huffington Post) (--Here's a video from the "Today" show where you can hear Karen talk now, and in an old home movie from before she developed her accent. I don't know about the Irish thing . . . sounds more eastern European to me.)

The 13 Worst Things About Being Pregnant:

Mother's Day is Sunday, so in case you're not appreciating your mom as much as you should be, here's a list of the 13 worst things a pregnant woman has to go through. Aside from the actual labor, which obviously wins hands down.

#1.) Morning Sickness. Over half of pregnant women experience it during their first trimester because of changing hormones.

#2.) Exhaustion. High levels of progesterone in the first trimester make most pregnant women want a nap at least once a day. And in the third trimester, it's common to have insomnia.

#3.) Heartburn. Basically, having a baby inside of you causes all your organs to get pushed upward. And since your stomach is squeezed up closer to your throat, heartburn can be a major issue.

#4.) Varicose Veins. Being pregnant and gaining a ton of weight can completely kill a woman's self-esteem. And getting varicose veins . . . lumpy, swollen veins that are usually on the legs . . . doesn't help.

#5.) Back Pain. Almost every pregnant woman has to deal with it for a number of reasons, including weight gain, a shifting center of gravity, and bigger breasts.

#6.) Hemorrhoids. When a woman's pregnant, her enlarged uterus puts pressure on her pelvic veins, which limits blood flow and causes hemorrhoids. And they're also common right after the birth.

#7.) Constipation. Progesterone basically paralyzes the uterus and the other 'smooth muscles' in the body . . . a.k.a., the stomach, intestines, and rectum.

#8.) Excessive Drooling. No one's really sure why it happens, but it's associated with morning sickness, and researchers think it's caused by hormones.

#9.) Gas. A lot of women get gassy when they're pregnant. And some women also crave beans and foods with a lot of fiber, which make them even gassier.

#10.) Constantly Having to Pee. In the third trimester, some women feel the urge to pee every five minutes.

#11.) Urinary Tract Infections. The odds of getting a U.T.I. go up during pregnancy because there's more pressure on the bladder.

#12.) Stretch Marks. More than half of pregnant women get them, and they can start showing up as early as the second trimester. --A lot of women use lotion to prevent them, but according to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, it doesn't really help. They're also permanent, although they do tend to fade over time.

#13.) Postpartum Depression. The numbers vary, but it affects somewhere between 10 and 20% of women in the first few months after they give birth. Women under the age of 20 are more likely to suffer from it. ( /

Three Dating Mistakes You Learned From Mom:

Since Mother's Day is Sunday, let's talk about your mom . . . and all the crappy dating advice she's given you. Sure, she means well . . . but sometimes she's WRONG. Today we've got three dating mistakes you actually learned from your mom.

#1.) Nagging Instead of Communicating Effectively. When it comes to relationship advice, moms love to tell their kids that the best way to communicate with their partner is to be calm, listen, and try to reach a compromise. --But then she'll turn around and nag dad to no end. And since actions speak louder than words, you learn pretty early on in life that whining will get you what you want.

#2.) Turning a Blind Eye to the Obvious. When you were growing up, if your mom was anything like mine, you probably noticed that she turned a blind eye to certain things when it came to your dad. --Not acknowledging problems was a way for her to keep the peace and avoid drama at home . . . whether it was about something small, like not helping around the house, or something big, like cheating. --But avoiding conflict isn't a very efficient relationship tool, since nothing ever REALLY gets resolved that way.

#3.) Making Marriage All About the Kids. Once kids come into the picture, romance and hot sex become afterthoughts. And over time, your mom probably started wearing sweatpants MORE and makeup LESS. --It happens to women AND men . . . over time you kinda just stop caring about your looks. But giving up on yourself isn't good for ANY relationship. (
