Every dog has its day

Have we not heard of jailbird Paris making headlines just about everywhere? Wrong reasons et al. But we were rather shocked to come to know that her furry companion is a big hit with the folks as well. If the latest grapevine is anything to go by, the empty gourmet can of her Chihuahua named Tinkerbell has fetched, take a deep breath, a whopping $1.5 million on Ebay. And who is having the best time? CEO of Party Animal Inc., the organisation that markets animal organic gourmet dog food, because orders can’t stop pouring in!
Sex, lies and videotape!
Former front-man of the hit boy band 98 Degrees, Nick Lachey, is busy waving his finger at tabloids at their attempt to publish highly explicit photos of the hunk and his sweetheart, Vanessa Minnillo, in the act. The latest issue of Life & Style has featured real steamy photographs of the celebrity couple, which got them flustered. Their attorney has stated that the photos were a malicious act and were taken illegally. But the question here is, why do celebrities always get down and dirty in the most vulnerable of places? Food for thought, eh?
Third time lucky?
The past years have seen the prodigious actor Leonardo DiCaprio, come within inches of bagging the coveted Best Actor Oscar, only to be left clapping in the crowds as the real winner holds the gold statuette. But this time, Leonardo is determined to bring home the Academy Award as he has signed a thriller movie, along with Russell Crowe, called Body of Lies. It has been scripted by, William Manohan (He bagged an Oscar for The Departed) and promises to be a complete thrill ride. We are keeping our fingers crossed, Leo.
The big fish is set to leave the water
The legendary Australian swimmer and Olympic champion, Ian Thorpe do Thorpe is set to pull the plug on his career by retiring early. He is taking this step at the height of his career to help people know the perils of climate change. He stated that the coral reefs were becoming over bleached and the forests in Tasmania were becoming of old growth. In a documentary called Fish Out Of Water, Thorpe takes the viewer on a tour around the Australian landscape where the effects of climate change were very obvious. Surely, Thorpe would set records here too.
