Argentina's President: Pork better for sex than Viagra?

Argentina's president thinks eating pig meat is really sexy. Many people in this beef-loving nation reacted with surprise Thursday after Cristina Fernandez promoted pork in a speech during which she not only said pork is better than Viagra, but suggested she's personally proven it.
"I didn't know that eating pork improved sexual activity," Fernandez said in a meeting with representatives of the swine industry late Wednesday. "It is much more gratifying to eat some grilled pork than to take Viagra."
She even joked that "it was all good" after she enjoyed some pork with her husband, former President Nestor Kirchner.
"I think they might be right," Fernandez said to a laughing audience.

The president's half-joking speech in which she announced subsidies for the pork industry won prominent play on television and radio stations, prompting discussions on whether Argentines should add more pork to their diet.
Argentines are among the world's biggest consumers of red meat, and most people here stubbornly reject the idea of replacing beef with chicken, pork or other meats. Despite Argentina lying along rich South Atlantic fisheries, seafood is rarely seen on dinner tables.

Fernandez approved subsidies to keep the price of pork low despite inflation, and her government has also recently subsidized red meat producers after beef supplies sharply declined in the South American country.

The head of the association of pork producers, Juan Luis Uccelli, supported Fernandez's speech by saying that Denmark and Japan have a much more "harmonious" sexual life then the Argentines because they eat a lot of pig meat.
"In Osaka, Japan, there is a village in which the people who reached 105 years old and ate a lot of pork had a lot of sexual activity," he told radio Mitre.
Others were skeptical.

"There is no study showing that pork meat significantly improves sexual activity," Amado Bechara, a specialist in sexual disfunction, told the Web site of the newspaper La Nacion.

Miss Virginia "Caressa Cameron" Wins 2010 Miss America Crown

Miss Virginia Caressa Cameron won the 2010 Miss America title Saturday night after strutting in a skintight yellow dress, belting Beyonce's "Listen" from "Dreamgirls" and telling kids they should get outside more often.

Cameron, a 22-year-old from Fredericksburg, Va., won a $50,000 scholarship and the crown in Las Vegas after a pageant that started with 53 contestants. She outlasted her opponents in swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview competitions.
Cameron is broadcast journalism student at Virginia Commonwealth University, and wants to become an anchor.

When asked during the interview portion of the competition her thoughts on fighting childhood obesity, Cameron said parents should curb television and video games.

"We need to get our kids back outside, playing with sticks in the street like I did when I was little," she said. "Expand your mind, go outside and get to see what this world is like."
Cameron said her win was a testament to her family's strength.

"You can be and become anything that you want to be, even Miss America," she said.
Miss California Kristy Cavinder was the first runner-up, winning $25,000.
The young women who came out on stage at the beginning of the pageant and danced to "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas are from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

After a week of preliminary competition, they each introduced themselves to the crowd Saturday at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
"From the home of the Governator, I am here to pump you up," Cavinder said as she was introduced.
The judges, the public and contestants themselves then trimmed the field over the next two hours.

Actor and "Extra" host Mario Lopez hosted the 89-year-old pageant with help from Clinton Kelly of TLC's "What Not to Wear." The pageant was broadcast live on TLC.
The panel of judges included radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, actress Vivica Fox, musician Dave Koz, Miss America 2002 Katie Harman, gymnast Shawn Johnson and former "American Idol" finalist Brooke White. Comedian Paul Rodriguez was set to be a judge, but organizers said he pulled out because of a family emergency.

Cameron, crowned by 2009 Miss America Katie Stam, will embark on a yearlong run with the title to represent the organization and raise awareness for her chosen platform.
Cameron, Cavinder and Miss Michigan Nicole Blaszczyk each won $2,000 earlier in the week for winning talent competitions among three split fields of contestants. Miss Oregon CC Barber, Miss New York Alyse Zwick and Miss Puerto Rico Mimi Pabon each won $1,000 in nightly swimsuit competitions.
Miss Oklahoma Taylor Treat won the $6,000 Quality of Life award, given to the contestant judged to excel most in volunteerism and community service.
Scores based on a week of preliminary competitions were added to Saturday's competitions to determine the winner. Each judge ranked their five favorites in order, and their ballots were used to pick the winner.
In all, the Miss America Organization awarded $340,000 in scholarships at the national level. The organization says its national, state and local chapters gave more than $45 million last year in cash and scholarships.
The pageant was preceded by a one-hour television special on TLC, "Miss America: Behind the Curtain."
The contestants picked 12 women from their own ranks who faced a public vote for one of three spots among the 15 finalists. Stam, a Seymour, Ind., native, was one of four finalists chosen by viewers last year.
The crowning of a Miss America began in 1921 as a publicity stunt to persuade tourists on Atlantic City's Boardwalk to stick around after Labor Day.

The bathing revue blossomed in the age of television into an American pop icon before fading in later years and losing it place on network TV in 2004. It moved to the Las Vegas Strip in 2006 in an attempt to reinvent itself and has found a home on cable television.

Justice Opeyemi Oke of the Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere has awarded ?100 million in damages to Uzoma Okere who was assaulted by four officers of the Nigerian Navy on November 3, 2008.

Serena Williams won the 2010 Australian Open championship after winning 6-4 3-6 6-2 over Belgium's Justine Henin. Following the win of the second consecutive Melbourne title, the 28-year-old Serena claimed her 5th Australian trophy (leveling the Billie-Jean King record in all-time list) and the 12th Gand Slam title in her career.

Beloved Author of 'Catcher in the Rye' Dies at 91

We will all remember J. D. Salinger as the author of “Catcher in the Rye”. The Seattle Post recognizes the Catcher in The Rye to be “one of the most influential novels in modern American literature.

Although his Salinger’s work was highly anticipated, he was a simple man, who separated fame and fortune from the love of his writing. Also in the Seattle Post, Salinger reveals his true work ethic, and his feelings about being in the spotlight. “There is a marvelous peace in not publishing. I like to write. I love to write. But I write for myself and my own pleasure”.

Creator of Buffy To Work On Glee

The writer and creator of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series has signed on to direct an episode of the first season for Fox's musical TV show Glee. Whedon created Buffy, which was one of the best shows on television. He also created the spin-off series for Buffy, called Angel.

Although his work has included creating a world of demons and monsters, he has had some experience working in music. "Once More With Feeling," was a successful musical episode of Buffy.

Glee has become increasingly popular. It will be exciting to see Joss Whedon's take on this bubblegum sensation.

My Life as Liz Brings New Taste to MTV

The simplicity of the show makes me wonder why there aren’t more reality shows like it, instead of the glitzed-up, highly manufactured characters that we're seeing today. Don’t get me wrong, everyone enjoys shows like MTV’s Taking the Stage, which center around a couple cream-of-the-crop art students in Cincinnati, Ohio, but normalcy, in today’s pop culture, seems to be looked down upon so much.

The minimalist filming approach to My Life as Liz is exactly what I wanted to watch. According to MTV News, Liz herself confirms the concept for the show has a little bit of everything.
“The show is kinda like Daria meets Juno-without the whole pregnancy factor — meets 'My So Called Life' meets 'Revenge of the Nerds' meets Freaks and Geeks, said Liz. The show is pretty dead-on when it comes to portraying my life accurately. It's pretty on point."
My Life as Liz couldn't have chosen a better time to come out. Although it may not be the next Jersey Shore or Real World, its simplistic characters and heartfelt plots are sure to bring about avid followers.

NBC Picks Up Conan's Pilot

Less than one week after Conan O’Brien and NBC reached a settlement over the “Tonight Show”, NBC picked up a pilot from O’Brien’s production company, Conaco.

After weeks of trash-talking and uncertainty of O’Briens future at NBC, the two finally came to an agreement. The “Tonight Show” host of only 7 months agreed to leave the network for a settlement of $32.5 million.

It comes as quite a surprise that NBC would pick up Conaco’s pilot after all the jabs it took during O’Brien’s final days as host. The pilot is reportedly an hour-long show featuring a former Supreme Court justice who launches his own legal firm. O'Brien is executive producer along with John Eisendrath. According to The Huffington Post, the pick-up came as a complete surprise to Team Conan - as well to the rest of us!

K.Fed Blames Weight Gain on Depression

Kevin Federline, once known as Mr. Britney Spears, admitted to Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp viewers that his weight gain was due to depression. When asked what brought on his depression, Federline stated, "A number of things between, I mean, everybody knows what happened with me and Brit. I’m not going to say that’s the total cause of it but, I mean, just not being happy with myself was probably the main part of my depression."

Kevin was Britney's back up dancer before he became her husband in 2004. After divorcing Spears in 2006, Federline stopped dancing and started "sitting on the couch all day." Kevin will be competing with other celebrities to see who can drop the most weight.

Drama Between "Idol" Judges Already?

It seems there is already drama stirring up on the set of "American Idol" between Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres. Simon arrived more than 90 minutes late to the first taping of the show, causing Ellen and the other judges to waste their time waiting for the veteran judge.

According to the Sun Times, Ellen was especially irritated due to her very tight schedule. She has already moved had to change her schedule to accommodate “American Idol”, including moving up the taping of her own talk show. With Simon leaving at the end of the season, “Idol” isn’t worried about leaking his bad habits anymore. A source told Pop Eater, "You should expect many more nasty leaks about Simon. The show no longer feels the need to protect him. Simon has been late for years and is baffled that all of a sudden, after he announces he is leaving the show, leaks to the press have started to occur."

Possible replacements for Simon are also beginning to surface. The Sun Times reported that the “Idol” producers want the new judge to have major music industry credibility. Replacements could include Tommy Mottola, Guy Oseary (Madonna’s business partner), and Jimmy Lovine.

John Travolta Flies to Help Haiti

John Travolta put his own Boeing 707 jetliner to good use once again on Monday. The Associated Press reported that the actor piloted his jet from Florida to Haiti with four tons of food and medical supplies for the earthquake victims. This is his second trip to aid in the relief effort.

Travolta also brought doctors and Scientology ministers to help in the relief. According to Pop Eater, the Scientologists have “irked" people, as the “Church of Scientology has been accused of capitalizing on tragedies in the past.”

Nonetheless, Travolta’s aid is much appreciated to the devastated country. The earthquake has killed over 150,000 people, and left hundreds of thousands of people injured and living in the streets.

"We have the ability to actually help make a difference in the situation in Haiti and I just can't see not using this plane to help," Travolta said. He hopes his effort inspires others to do what they can to help.

Jersey Shore Cast Demands More Money!

MTV’s Jersey Shore had a huge first season, bringing in 4.8 million viewers in its season finale. Now the cast, including The Situation, Pauly D, Snooki and others, are demanding more money for season 2.

MTV reportedly offered each cast member a $10,000 signing bonus, and $5,000 per episode. The Jersey Shore cast rejected this offer, claiming they would negotiate until they received a much higher offer. MTV then doubled the salary to $10,000 per episode. The cast members still have not accepted this offer.

Pauly D and The Situation are reportedly being the most stubborn with the negotiation. This isn't hard to believe about The Situation who said in episode 2, "Everybody at the Shore definitely knows The Situation. As far as I know, everybody loves The Situation, and if you don't love The Situation, I'm gonna make you love The Situation."

According to TMZ, MTV said they have not made any decisions to bring back the cast, and has received thousands of tapes from hopeful “Guido and Guidettes”. MTV told the cast they are not a package deal, so Snooki, The Situation or whoever won’t negotiate can see the door. With thousands of other interested “Situations” and “Snookies” out there, MTV doesn’t seem to be budging on their offer. The Jersey Shore cast has until the end of today to accept the offer.

Kim Kardashian Gets Restraining Order Against Stalker

Kim Kardashian has obtained a temporary restraining order against Dennis Shaun Bowman, her alleged stalker. Kim says the young man began stalking her via twitter last September. Her stalker moved from Georgia to Calabasas, California to be closer to Kim, and has recently begun attending the star's appearances.

Bowman not only acted bizarre and abnormal at Kim's appearances, he painted his face as the "Joker". He also threatened Kim's boyfriend, football player Reggie Bush, through twitter.

According to court papers obtained by E! News, Bowman is "a delusional fan who has been stalking and harassing Ms. Kardashian since at least October 2009. He has refused to cease contacting her despite demands from the LAPD and Ms. Kardashian's attorneys."

Under the restraining order, Bowman must stay 500 yards away from the star at all times, and have no contact with Kim.


I've been a fan of American Idol for many years. Perhaps one of the greatest performances I remember was a little lady named Katharine McPhee as she sat on the stage and did her own rendition of Judy Garland's Over the Rainbow. I think Judy would have been proud. I had the honor of working with Kat in applying a set of eyelash extensions literally hours before she boarded a plane to Italy to

Nicole "Snooki" Pretruzzi Talks about Eating Disorder

Nicole “Snooki” Pretruzzi is best known for her roles on MTV’s hit shows “Jersey Shore” and “Is She Really Going Out with Him”

Snooki opens up about her struggles with her weight that started in high school. She would only eat once a day and she would eat less as time went on. “In high school”, Snooki tells US Magazine, “I really wouldn’t eat. I would only have lunch, and I would only have salads. It got so crazy that I would only eat a cracker or a cucumber a day and I would feel full”.

School staff notified Snooki’s parents about her eating behavior, and her family supported her through a healthy recovery. Under her family’s watchful eye, Snooki made a full recovery, going from 80 pounds, to her goal weight, 98.

On “The Jersey Shore”, Snooki’s weight has been called on numerous accounts. Housemate Mike, “The Situation”, has joked about Snooki’s weight. Snooki’s weight was also the cause of a drunken cat fight between another housemate nicknamed JWOW and another woman at a bar.

Mike apologized to Snooki for his comments about her weight. "I regret saying it because I have a sister and a mother, but at the same time, everything happened so quickly and that is what happened”.

Snooki tells that she has since put her disorder behind her. “Right now I don't care what people think of me. They will say negative stuff and whatever, I'm happy with myself”.

China To Stop Running Avatar

James Cameron's highly successful Avatar has been too successful for China! The mega-hit will officially stop playing in Chinese movie theaters this week because China says it's success is taking away from Chinese films.

Avatar, which was released just over 30 days ago, has grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide and has remained at the number one spot 5 weeks in a row.

Pulling Cameron's new film from it's theaters will make room for more domestic Chinese films. China's biggest film of the year, Confucius, opens this Thursday. Fair or not, with Avatar out of the way it is sure to help out any new flick.

Heidi Montag Not Additected To Plastic Surgery

After undergoing 10 cosmetic procedures in one day, "The Hills" star Heidi Montag protests she is not addicted to plastic surgery. Heidi, 23, did however admit to People magazine that she is "beyond obsessed with plastic surgery."

In an interview on Good Morning America Heidi claims, "I'm not addicted. If I were addicted, I would have had 10 plastic surgeries." Anchor Juju Chang reminds her that she did indeed just have 10 plastic surgeries, to which Heidi responds,"Well, I mean 10 times. I really had two different surgeries. I had one three years ago and then I had one that I had several procedures done weeks ago."

Heidi went under the knife for 10 hours on November 20. The 10-procedures included liposuction on her waist, hips, neck, and inner and outer thighs; a mini brow lift; botox in her forehead and frown area; a nose job revision; fat injections in her cheeks, nasolabial folds and lips; a chin reduction; ear pinning; a breast augmentation revision; and buttock augmentation.

"I think that I do look like myself, I just think that I'm a different, improved version of myself," she announced on Good Morning America.

What do you think of Heidi's transformation?

Jay's POV

O'Brien To Leave NBC

The ongoing battle between NBC, O’Brien and Leno is finally coming to an end. Jay Leno may be reclaiming the job as host of the “Tonight Show”, letting O’brien leave the network. According to TMZ, Conan O’Brien is losing “The Tonight Show” but is reportedly getting $32.5 million in exchange for the loss. NBC is also paying nearly $8 million severance to “The Tonight Show” employees.

Another part of the deal - Conan cannot host a new show until the fall. If he makes a deal with another network during his NBC contract period, it offsets the network’s obligation. Conan may have to leave his show creations behind under intellectual property right laws, including Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog.

Jay Leno says he has no bad feelings toward Conan, “Through all of this, Conan O’Brien has been a gentleman,” Leno said. “He’s a good guy. I have no animosity towards him.”

Whose side are you on?

Six Things Beyonce Will do on Her Six Months Break

Beyonce says during her break:

1. She is not stepping into the studio and will stay away from her shoots and recordings.

2. She would eat out a lot and would be visiting lots and lots of restaurants.

3. She is also eager to take up a few classes (maybe cooking or French-learning)

4. She is also keen to head into theatres and watch lots of movies munching popcorns to give her jaws something to work upon.

5. She, even, is desirous of making a dash to the Broadway theatres and witness some plays. Hmmm�.

6. And finally, she quips, she�d be doing a lot of random things (of which neither she nor we have any idea, at present).

She needs the rest!


Today's quite a busy one People. Two posts in one day! Singer Usher Raymond claims that he was robbed of over a million dollars in jewelry! Here's what he alleges thus far. It happened in the ATL. (down-low perps trying to get icy while not trying to be Tardy for the Party maybe?) It happened while he was inside of the AT&T phone store. (Should we be on the lookout for a tatted up Usher with the name Cookie logoed on his upper chest?) Okay, in all seriousness, we do hope that the Let it Burn singer gets his pricey belongings returned. Nobody can afford to Light it Up in a recession :) The jewelry was left sitting in the back of his GMC Yukon. And one of the AT&T employees claims to have seen the crime when it was in progress....No snitching policy? Old girl better start talking... Usher's just the one to talk to if you got Confessions.....

A Murder At The People's Choice Awards 2010!!!

Well---not really, but Mary J did kill it (in the best kind of way) in the earrings shown above. I wasn't really into the Awards this year, but these baubles were certainly CityRocka-Post worthy. The delicious dangles in white and brown diamonds are by Jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz. Here's something else to kill---all of the rumors about a possible splitsville with her husband Kendu Issacs because of an earlier reported scuffle @ her album release party. It's just my personal opinion, but didn't that scene play out as being timely??? Sing with me now readers. "Ain't nobody gonna treat you better, ain't nobody gonna touch you better, ain't nobody gonna love you better, boy than I can...than I can..." Dang, I'm one girl that can sing!!! LOL.
