Wednesday July 11

Yep its true...check this out:

LINDSAY LOHAN is in talks to appear in "Scary Movie 5" alongside "High School Musical" star ASHLEY TISDALE. Nothing is definite yet, though.

The franchise was launched by the WAYANS BROTHERS in 2000, but they left after two installments, and it's been handled by DAVID ZUCKER of "Airplane" and "The Naked Gun" fame ever since.

Obviously, Zucker can't bring his ace-in-the-hole LESLIE NIELSEN back, because Leslie died in 2010. He played the president in the last two installments.

Also not coming least as far as we ANNA FARIS, who's been the star of every "Scary Movie" so far.

DirecTV customers lost all Viacom channels last night at midnight.

That's because DirecTV and Viacom failed to come to terms on a new contract...and the impasse extended beyond a midnight deadline.

DirecTV subscribers lost a chunk of channels, including: Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, BET, VH1, CMT, Logo, Spike, TV Land, MTV2, VH1 Classic, Palladia, Nick Jr., NickToons and TeenNick.

DirecTV has about 20 million subscribers throughout the country.

Including the HD, it carries a total of 26 Viacom-owned channels.

It's unclear how long the blackout might last. DirecTV says Viacom wants to add a "carriage fee of more than 30%"...but Viacom says they proposed a fair deal where each subscriber would only have to pay, "a couple [more] pennies per day."

Around 145 million Americans use at least one social networking site...which means if they formed their own country, it would be the eighth-largest in the world.

A new study broke down how men and women in the U.S. use social media differently. Here's the TALE OF THE TAPE.

#1.) Women are more likely to join social media sites than men. 56% of social media users in the U.S. are female.

#2.) Women are more likely to have un-friended someone, 67% to 58%.

#3.) Men are TWICE as likely as women to be EMBARRASSED by something they posted on a social media site.

#4.) 64% of Twitter users in the U.S. and 58% of Facebook users in the U.S. are female. So are 82% of Pinterest users.

#5.) 84% of Reddit users are male, as are 71% of Google Plus users and 63% of LinkedIn users.

#6.) Women are more likely to update their Facebook status daily, 18% to 11%. Women are also more likely to comment on photos and other people's status updates.

#7.) Women are more ACTIVE social media users. Women in the U.S. make 99 MILLION more visits per month to social media sites than men.

If EVERYONE overpacks for vacation, can it really be called overpacking anymore?

According to a new survey, the AVERAGE woman packs 28 different outfits for a one-week vacation.

But...most of them say they try to change clothes four times a day on vacation, so they really do need that many options.

80% say they don't end up wearing EVERYTHING they pack.

20% say they end up paying extra luggage fees, either because their suitcase is too heavy or they have to bring a whole extra suitcase for clothes.

The average woman also says she's had at least one argument with her male travel companion over packing.

Last September, 47-year-old Pauline Potter of Sacramento, California was named the World's Heaviest Living Woman by the "Guinness Book of World Records". She achieved that by weighing in at 643 pounds.

But in less than a year, she's dropped 100 pounds...and she gives ALL the credit to ONE SPECIAL CHUBBY CHASER.

Three years ago, her husband Alex...who weighs about 155 pounds...divorced her. After she got the world record, he came CRAWLING BACK. And now, Pauline is burning calories with him through MARATHON SEX SESSIONS.

She says they have sex up to seven times a day, and she burns about 500 calories each time. She also says they've figured out how to use MULTIPLE POSITIONS...even though ONE OF HER LEGS outweighs her ex-husband.

She's close to her temporary goal weight of 530 that weight, she thinks she'll be able to become more mobile. To get there, she wants to keep having sex and, "still eat Big Macs, but choose between fries or McNuggets."

What a dream come true. LOL

We've said this before and we'll say it again. For every couple that's SAVED by "Fifty Shades of Grey" putting a spark of BONDAGE into their sex life...another couple is RUINED. Here's one that was ruined.

Back on June 25th, 31-year-old Raymond Hodgson of Carlisle, England got into a fight with his girlfriend of five years, Emma McCormick.

Emma wouldn't stop reading "Fifty Shades of Grey"...and Raymond thought it was pornographic and unrealistic. He went home...came back the next day...and angrily SQUIRTED HER IN THE FACE with steak sauce.

He was arrested and charged with assault. Earlier this week, he pleaded guilty. His lawyer says, "He regrets having done this, realizing how stupid it sounds. He didn't realize [it] would be classified as an assault."

Raymond and Emma hadn't really spoken since the incident, but have started talking to each other again.

Not sure if this is the worst kind of "squirting in the face" that can come out of a couple reading "Fifty Shades of Grey", btw........nevermind

FOSTER THE PEOPLE singer MIKE FOSTER tells "Q" magazine that he has only been star-struck once: When he met SNOOP DOGG.

He says he hugged Snoop and told him that he'd love to smoke with him...even though he'd just quit marijuana three days before. But instead of taking him up on the offer, Snoop gave him some advice.

Mike says, "He said 'You know what, brother? Sometimes you gotta slow down and focus on your [stuff].' From the godfather of marijuana smoking, that was good enough for me."

This was a bold move by Snoop. Nothing would've jacked up his cred with white folks like being able to boast that he smoked with the guy who brought us "Pumped Up Kicks"!

This is one of the big questions of the BOOTY CALL ERA we're living in now...can you transition from a purely sexual, no-strings-attached relationship into an actual relationship?

According to a new study out of Concordia University in Montreal, the answer is...YES.

Jim Pfaus is a psychology professor at Concordia. He studied the brain and how it's triggered by both a sexual relationship and actual love.

And...he found that there are several regions of the brain that overlap and control both sex and love. So he says yes, sex can transform into love.

Just like when you fall in love with someone, you want to have sex with them, it can work the opposite way too...when you have sex with someone, it can lead to you falling in love with them.

It's not necessarily going to happen every time...but, at least biologically, it's a realistic possibility.

Lists like this always seem like nonsense, but it's summer so here we go: The website has a list of seven popular ice cream flavors, and what they say about your personality.

#1.) Chocolate. If it's you're favorite, they say it means you're "lively, creative, and dramatic."

If you like "double chocolate chunk," it means you look for passionate, exciting relationships.

#2.) Vanilla. You'd assume it means you're boring and bland. But apparently people who like vanilla tend to be RISK TAKERS, and usually rely on intuition when they're faced with a problem.

#3.) Strawberry. It means you're thoughtful and logical, but you tend to be a follower rather than a leader. You also weigh your options carefully, so it sometimes takes you a long time to make decisions.

#4.) Mint Chocolate Chip. People who say it's their favorite tend to be ambitious and confident, and like making plans and thinking ahead. They also tend to be skeptics.

If you like chocolate chip ice cream WITHOUT the mint, it means you're ambitious, competitive, hard working, and good in social situations.

#5.) Coffee. Coffee ice cream fans tend to over-commit to things, and always start new projects before they finish the last one. They can also be very flirtatious.

#6.) Rocky Road. It means you're practical, but you're outgoing in social situations. And you're more sensitive to criticism than most people are.

#7.) Butter Pecan. You're devoted, respectful, and careful with money. And you think integrity is a very important trait to have. (So, senior citizens apparently...which sounds about right for butter pecan.)

I've been working on this for at least a week! Finally found time to finish it up!


The website just released a list of the 10 biggest complaints men have about women. Since it was probably compiled by some really jaded dude who writes for them, you may or may not agree...but here's their list:

#1.) Women see men as projects they can fix.

#2.) Hollywood has given women unrealistic expectations about romance.

#3.) Women are always looking down the road for the next "What are we?" or "Are we exclusive yet?" or "Are we going to get married?"

#4.) Women use emotions as a weapon.

#5.) Women have a tendency to be critical.

#6.) Women like to play coy.

#7.) Women fixate on trying to figure out what men are thinking, instead of watching what men are doing.

#8.) Women don't understand or like men's desire for alone time.

#9.) Women have a complex set of double standards.

#10.) Women want men to change...then lose respect when they do.

July 4th is the only holiday MOST people celebrate in July, and it's the only OFFICIAL holiday in July...but there are plenty of random, unofficial, and made-up holidays this month that you might want to get in on too. Here are six of 'em.

July 6th, International Kissing Day. This started as National Kissing Day in the U.K., but now it's supposedly gone worldwide. I'll celebrate that!

July 11th, Slurpee Day. The date is 7/11, so 7-Eleven stores give out small, free Slurpees to celebrate. Or you could go to 7-Eleven on any other day and pay $1.50 to get the same Slurpee without having to stand in a 45-minute line.

July 13th, National French Fries Day. Last year SOME McDonald's gave out free fries on this day. Some.

July 14th, National Nude Day. This started in New Zealand, and encourages you to celebrate your nudity as much as possible. You are encouraged to come to Rock The Resort naked. (Kidding. Unless you are attractive)

July 27th, Bagpipe Appreciation Day.

July 29th, National Lasagna Day. Because there's no better summer food than piping hot lasagna.

Remember back when you worried how many minutes you had left on your cell phone? Or when your biggest complaint was dropped calls or bad reception? Seems like a distant memory.

According to a new study, phone calls are now only the FIFTH most popular thing we do with our phones. Here are the ten things we do on our phones most often, with the average amount of time we spend doing them each day...

#1.) The internet, 25 minutes.

#2.) Social media, 17 minutes.

#3.) Music, 16 minutes.

#4.) Games, 14 minutes.

#5.) Phone calls, 12 minutes.

#6.) Emails, 11 minutes.

#7.) Texting, 10 minutes.

#8.) Watching TV, movies, or videos, 9 minutes.

#9.) Reading books or magazines, 9 minutes.

#10.) Taking photos, 3 minutes.

The study also found that 54% of people now use their phone instead of an alarm clock...and 46% say their phone has replaced their watch.

How many times has this happened: You're watching the thrilling one o'clock NFL game on a Sunday when suddenly, before it's even over, they cut to some crappy four o'clock game between, like, the Bills and the Jets.

Well, it's going to happen a lot less from now on. The NFL is moving the kickoff for the later games back 10 minutes...from 4:15 to 4:25.

FUNKY BUNCH leader MARKY MARK WAHLBERG probably never went to bed by 9:00 P.M. But for 41-year-old MARK WAHLBERG, that's bedtime.

He says, quote, "You'd be amazed with what you can do once you stop drinking and going out at night . . . Today I was up at 4:30 A.M., played an hour and a half of basketball, then went upstairs.

"We got the kids out of bed, got them off to school and I was at church by 7:45 A.M. These days I'm in bed by 9:00 P.M. at the latest."

KATY PERRY is not currently on the market. But not because she's hooked up. She says, "For me, right now, I'm totally not looking.  I'm just looking to heal.  And I'm on that path.  I'm not down on love."

So what about Robert Ackroyd from Florence + The Machine?  It's NOTHING. She says, "That's not even appropriate to label.  There are times I go out and meet people and flirt, but it's not really appropriate to have anything serious."

Have you noticed that action movies just keep getting longer?  And "The Dark Knight Rises" is going to be one of the longest in recent memory, at two hours and 45 minutes.

That's 15 minutes longer than "The Dark Knight" and 25 minutes longer than "Batman Begins".  It's also 23 minutes longer than both "The Avengers" and "The Hunger Games".

And it's 29 minutes longer than "The Amazing Spider-Man" and 35 minutes longer than "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2".

USHER'S 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover was pronounced brain dead at a Georgia hospital yesterday.  The previous day, Kyle had been riding on an inner tube on Lake Lanier in Georgia when a passing jet ski struck him in the head.

Kyle is the son of Usher's estranged wife TAMEKA FOSTER.  Both Usher and Tameka were at the hospital as of Saturday night.

A new survey has figured out the exact worst moment of the week. And it's not the moment when you're flipping channels and accidentally watch three seconds of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".

The worst moment of the week is . . . 4:13 P.M. on Sunday.

That's the average time people say they're the most upset because of a devastating combo of the weekend being over and anxiety about the next week of work.

The survey also found 75% of people try not to leave the house on Sundays . . . and, possibly as a result of that, 44% of people think their weekends sound boring compared to their coworkers.

Interestingly, Friday was named the second-most stressful day of the week behind Sunday. 

It's been 16 years since WILL SMITH teamed up with three far-less likely action heroes...Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and Randy save the world from an alien invasion in "Independence Day".

And now, finally, producer DEAN DEVLIN says he's working with director ROLAND EMMERICH on a sequel.  (They co-wrote the original.)

He says, "I can tell you that Roland and I have been working together for the first time in 11 years and we're very excited about the idea of doing it.

"Whether or not we can make this happen, if we can get all the pieces to come together, that's gonna be challenging.  But creatively, for the very first time since we did the original, I feel we have a worthy concept, a worthy path to go."

Obviously, there's no word at this point who might return for the sequel. Devlin says, quote, "We're beginning a long process of talking to everybody.  We'll just have to see what happens."

The original also starred Judd Hirsch, Vivica Fox, Robert Loggia, Adam Baldwin, Harvey Fierstein, Mary McDonnell and Brent Spiner. Although McDonnell and Spiner DIED in the first one. 

KANYE WEST went off on another one of his self-important rants during a show in Atlantic City over the weekend.  This time, he was ticked off about something a gossip blog had written about him.

He said, "If you have something to give the world, a lot of times, the press just tries to take everything negative . . . they so [effin'] full of [crap] . . . making up [stuff] every day.

"I am flawed as a human being. I am flawed as a person. As a man, I am flawed. But my music is perfect! This is the best that you gonna get ladies and gentlemen in this lifetime, I'm sorry.

"You go back to BEETHOVEN and [stuff], but as far as this lifetime though, this is all you got."

We've got the results here of a new survey that proves three things. One, most people genuinely believe they're PATIENT.  Two, most people are completely delusional about that. are especially delusional.

According to the survey, about three-quarters of people say they're patient...and men are more likely to say they're more patient than women.  Even though the examples from the survey suggest the opposite is true.

The average woman is willing to wait in line for five to 10 minutes...the average man is only willing to stick it out for two to five minutes.

And men are more than twice as likely to give the car to a valet rather than drive around looking for parking.

The survey also found that people rank checkout lines as the most frustrating places to wait.  Airports are second, gas stations are third, banks and ATMs are fourth, and coffee shops are fifth.

The most common way people pass the time in a line is playing on their phone.  2% of people say they pass the time by trying to think of ways to jump the line.

A user on the website Reddit asked fast food workers if they could name any item on their restaurant's menu they'd NEVER order...and why. It got a TON of responses. Here are some highlights. Hope you're not hungry.

McDonald's Chicken Nuggets.  Some of the most disgusting stories focused on McNuggets, including one guy who says he once left a bag of 100 nuggets out for too long and they somehow MELTED INTO A LIQUID.

Wendy's Chili.  The meat comes from hamburgers that were on the grill too long.  Those go in the fridge, then eventually get chopped up for the chili.

Ice.  Employees at plenty of different chains said the drink machines are tough to clean and keep mold-free . . . and when they clean, their priorities are the more visible areas.

Anything at Subway that looks bad.  Subway employees all seemed to agree the quality of your food depends on the restaurant.  If the food colors don't look right, if the floor's a mess, if it're at a bad Subway. My Subway is good :)

Watch out especially for the tuna, seafood salad, and chicken at those Subways.

Grilled Chicken.  Employees from McDonald's, Wendy's, Subway, and Burger King said they've seen the grilled chicken breasts slathered in margarine to keep them from sticking . . . or defrosted in vats of hot water.

Five Guys large fries.  This is for a completely different reason than the rest.  Employees say the difference in how many fries you get in the large versus the smaller size isn't very much . . . so save your money.
