Former US National Basketball Association star Dennis Rodman will take part in the 2005 Wife-Carrying World Championships in Finland in July, organisers said on Monday. The whimsical annual event resembles a 250-metre steeplechase in which the "wife" rides upside down on the runner’s back with her legs slung over his shoulders for maximum speed…Women must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 49 kilograms (108 pounds) in order to qualify.

No word yet on whether he will be the carry-er or carry-ee…

What do these two guys have in common? They’ll both be on Best Week Ever tonight at 11.
If you missed them once you don’t want to miss them again.
Lindsay Lohan, currently promoting her new movie "Herbie: Far from Fully Loaded."
It hasn’t been confirmed, but sources say that Justin Trousersnake… er, Timberlake… is set to go gay with a guest spot on "Will & Grace" next season.
This is too easy.
JT will take on the role of Jack’s "bad boy" boyfriend for a 3 episode run.
It will mark the first time Justin has gone gay since ‘N Sync broke up.
To research his role, he plans on hanging out with Lance Bass.
By appearing on "Will & Grace," Timberlake will FINALLY be doing something to get the attention of the gay community.
When told about it, Nick Carter said, "How much is he getting paid? I’ll do it for half that."
Justin has chosen the role to either promote a new album or to promote a new lifestyle, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Apparently the part was originally turned down by Elton John, who found the character to be "too gay."
Justin Timberlake gay on TV? I… I’m done. I have to stop now or I may just go on forever.
Who’s gonna win tonight: The guy who thinks he’s Gregg Allman or the girl who thinks she’s Faith Hill?
So who’s going to win? Besides America. Seacrest out.
C’mon, how can Phil Spector possibly be guilty with that hair??? The man is clearly innocent… and awesome.
MSNBC.com has a little report today about Eminem’s new video. They have an interesting way of writing about it, though. Check it out:
The provocative white rapper has a new video for his song “[three letter vulgarity for derriere redacted] Like That” which features puppets who engage in lesbian activity.
Hmm. Three letter vulgarity for derriere redacted? That sounds like a pretty unorthodox rap title, don’t you think?
If MSNBC really didn’t want to write the word "Ass" I’m sure they could’ve come up with a better term than "Three letter vulgarity for derriere redacted." How about:
- [Donkey] Like That
- [What you're sitting on right now] Like That
- [J-Lo's Best Feature] Like That
- [Charlie O'Connell] Like That
- [Sir Mix-A-Lot's Favorite Subject Matter] Like That
- [Rosie O'Donnell Has a Fat One] Like That
- [The thing you feel like when somebody catches you voting for the next "American Idol"] Like That
- [What Eminem's baggy jeans barely cover] Like That
Wow, all this ass talk has caused me to completely gloss over the fact that his new video features lesbian puppets. Sorry, but after watching the unrated version of "Team America" I don’t think there’s anything puppets can do anymore that will shock me. Better luck next time Em. You [derriere redacted].
What’s up, my name is Kevin and I’m the brand new PA here at Best Week Ever. For those of you not "in the biz" PA technically stands for Practically Anything. So, when I was asked to start contributing cool links to the BWE blog, I thought, "Well, that falls under my job description… I guess I have to do it." So here they are. Oh, and if you hate them, please, be gentle. Because like the The Godfather said (The one from the WWF, not that lame movie) "PA’ing ain’t easy."
Beyonce had her father and manager Matthew Knowles saying no, no, no when she fired him the other day. I guess Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner just weren’t awkward enough.
Everyone’s favorite housewife Eva Longoria is reportedly dating Kiefer Sutherland. Last week it was Darth Vader, now its Jack Bauer. I’ve done the math, and I figure that at this rate she’ll be dating me by… Thursday!
California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger drew inspiration for his political career from the most unlikely of sources- Hitler! The Terminator said, “I admire him for being such a good public speaker and his way of getting to the people and so on." Good thing there are no Jews in Hollywood…
Mover over Lohan, its been reported that Katie Holmes will star alongside Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 3. This week. Now if only Cruise would’ve landed Kate Bosworth like he originally wanted, who knows what would’ve happened.
"Star Wars" brought in huge numbers this past weekend, making a staggering 158.5 million dollars at the box office. Look for it to beat out "Return of the King" and "The Matrix" as the greatest movie ever on the imdb top 250. Actually, no… it probably won’t. Sorry losers.
Well, I guess now we know where he was hiding those Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Thank you, I’ll be here all week.
