The singer failed to squeeze into her sexy black leather costume for the new Pepsi commercial, reports the Daily Star. Frantic staff had to stitch an extra piece of leather onto the outfit to cover the star's curvy bottom, according to the paper.
A set insider said: "It was quite comical, really. There were all these people ready to get on with the work when we realized there was a problem. "Basically J-Lo's num was just too curvy for the outfit."
Estelle Getty, the actress who played the lovable and witty Sophia on "The Golden Girls," is suffering from dementia but is not on her deathbed.
Despite recent tabloid rumors that she is dying, Getty's former castmates set the record straight, saying she is "not near death...not near death at all." Betty White, Bea Arthur, and Rue McClanahan reunited in Beverly Hills for the DVD release of the popular show and were quick to express how much they missed Getty at the event.
--How sad. I'll admit it: I loved that show. I still catch some of the reruns on TV. I also liked her character in the movie Mannequin.
Dr. Ruth Westheimer thinks people should know that jury duty has an upside that doesn't get talked about much: It's a great way to get a date. "Jury duty is good way to meet men and women, a partner," Westheimer said.

In response, ESPN highlighted some of the most notorious player-fan brawls in sports.

Modest Pitt was invited by James Lipton to review his film career and discuss his acting methods on the Bravo program, when his blockbuster Troy came out this summer. According to American gossip site Pagesix.Com, Pitt said that he didn't have a "sufficient body of work".
--I gotta say this earns major points for him in my book. It seems as though he truly cares about the craft of acting, and less about the notariety that goes along with it.
The Bushes want Badgley:
The Bush women are giving up the provincial look for glitz. First Lady Laura Bush and daughters Barbara and Jenna who wore inaugural gowns designed by Texan Michael Faircloth and family friend Lela Rose four years ago want to wear Badgley Mischka to the January inaugural.
--Excellent choice, in my opinion.
...archeologists nickname a stone age skeleton after you because of your perfect teeth.

Jude Law is the sexiest man alive? PLEASE! I strongly disagree with this decision.
I personally think he's creepy looking, and his role in The Road to Perdition affirmed that for me.
As for People's other choices: Orlando Bloom (not really), Jake Gyllenhaal (if you like guys that look 10 years old), Usher (don't like his ears, but he oozes sexy), Colin Farrell (too dirty for my taste, but sexy), Brad Pitt (when he's not too hairy, he's perfect--a la Ocean's 11), Matt Damon (not bad), Ben Affleck (eh, he's ok), Bruce Willis (definitely) and Johnny Depp (not if he was the last man alive). Hello? Where is Colin Firth? Where is Clooney?
Us Weekly named Jesse Metcalfe, who plays Eva Longoria's on-screen gardener on "Desperate Housewives," as the sexiest man on television. (Can't disagree there).
When asked if her eldest daughter Aimee was dating Robbie she said: "No, I am. How gorgeous is he? You just want to touch him all over." She added: "I just invite him over to give him a good squeeze.
"He is gorgeous, isn't he? His bottom feels good, don't you just want to touch his little willy?"
--So subtle, Sharon.
