SIZZLER: Mena Suvari’s New Beau

by

Msuvari_1

American Beauty starlet Mena Suvari has a brand new beau. According to People.com, "For "almost six months" she has been dating Mike "Murda" Carrasco, a 23-year-old professional breakdancer" from Las Vegas. The pair reportedly met at Battle of the Year–the World Cup of Breakdancing. 

It’s great to see Hollywood stars dating non-celebrities. On the other hand, if it were 1985, Carrasco would be one hell of a catch.

Now, maybe if this was an actual event I’d tune in tonight. Instead, I’ll be watching the 2 hour Arrested Development finale. You should too.

Live Blog: Tyra

Today on Tyra:  Tyra searches for America’s next “Transsexual Top Model!” The outrageous Janice Dickinson, former club kid James St. James and drag icon and recording artist Kevin Aviance judge guests in a “Top Model” style competition to decide who will walk away with a Tyra-directed high-fashion photo shoot, a spread in Instinct magazine, and a modeling contract!

If that’s not worthy of a live blog I don’t know what is. I’ll be posting all throughout the show (5-6pm) on behalf of those TV-challenged office-workers who don’t want to miss this monumental event. Check it out after the jump.

GOOGLE SEARCH: Survivor’s Shane Powers

After last night’s episode of Survivor, I have developed my first ever Reality crush. Shane Powers, is a 30-something father, with cool tattoos, a job as a Marketing Executive and an uncanny resemblance to Tommy Lee. He’s also got a bit of a temper. Last night Powers, who quit his 3 pack a day habit when he arrived in Panama, spent the entire episode jonesing for a cigarette and cursing the day he ever agreed to do the show. In fact he asked his teammates to vote him off.

I was smitten by his candor and his seeming apathy towards screen time. So I decided to do a quickie Google search to find out more about his job as a makerter. You may already know this, but it seems that he’s been working overtime. Check out Powers’ resume after the jump:
