Celebrities Hog Spotlight At Super Bowl

superbowl-celebrities

Foolish athletes! Don’t you know who the real stars are?! While the football players did all the work on the field, stars like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, and Ashton Kutcher showed up at the Super Bowl to hog all the attention and bask in the glow of the photographers’ cameras.

Kim Kardashian was there too, but she stayed surprisingly hidden during the game. Surely she was nervous watching her boyfriend Reggie Bush help to snag a win for New Orleans and probably wanted to bite her nails in private. But once Reggie and the Saints landed the trophy, ol’ Kimmy was back in front of the cameras, celebrating on the field like she had just won the game and posting a bunch of exclamation-filled tweets. Pics below.

The Real Super Bowl MVP: Drew Brees’ Baby Baylen

Drew Brees Baylen Brees

Drew Brees, superhero quarterback from the New Orleans Saints, seems like a great dude. He’s easy on the eyes, a monster on the field, has raised millions for kids with his charity, and is adored by fans in the Big Easy, where he has been nicknamed “Breesus.” But last night he became even more likable, when millions of football fans caught him crying and cuddling with his son Baylen as he celebrated the Saints win last. Holy cuteness.

In that one moment, Baylen stole all of his dad’s thunder (Kinda like his dad did to Peyton Manning. Ouch!). Can you get any cuter than a baby in headphones, eating confetti and kissing his pops?! No, America, you can not. Thank you Baylen, for making football fun to watch for the rest of us. Enjoy.

Jessica Drops $100,000 On Boat For Boyfriend

Jessica Simpson Tony Romo Speedboat

Tony Romo‘s on a boat, motherf*cker! The Dallas Cowboys star is the proud owner of a brand new speedboat, thanks to girlfriend Jessica “Moneybags” Simpson. Apparently she’s making a killing selling bathing suits and shoes with her name on the label, and she gifted her man the $100,000 sea cruiser for his birthday last month.

Jess revealed the posh present at a birthday party for Tony at their Dallas, Texas home. But don’t let her generosity fool you – there’s supposedly some serious manipulation behind the gargantuan gift. “Jessica knows that Tony has always wanted a boat,” said a source. “(She’s) hoping that her birthday gift will lead to marriage, and by this time next year she’ll be walking down the aisle with him.”

Seriously – what’s a girl gotta do to get married around here? [Photo: Splash News Online]

Gisele Bündchen Shows Off Her Wedding Bling

gisele-main

Newly-married Gisele Bündchen is busy flaunting her wedding ring, a massive blob of diamonds that sprouts gleefully from her ring finger as if to taunt us. Husband Tom Brady surely invested a good chunk of his Patriots salary on the rock, which looks as though it has the power to transform Gisele into Jem with one little press and the utterance of the words, “Showtime, Synergy.”

Ugh, did we just date ourselves? Ignore our nostalgic 80′s references and check out Gisele’s jewels in the pics below, and check out more fabulous celebrity engagement rings here!  [Photo: GettyImages/Splash News Online]

Coast Guard Calls Off Search For Missing NFL Players

Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, NFL free agent Corey Smith and former University of South Florida football player William Bleakley are all still missing after departing for a fishing trip in Florida on Saturday. Their friend and fishing companion, former USF football player Nick Schuyler, was found yesterday clinging to their capsized boat (see pic above).

Schuyler told investigators that their anchored boat was overturned Saturday evening, and that the friends clung to it until somehow separating early Monday morning. All off the missing men were reportedly wearing life vests, which may enhance their slim chances of survival as time runs out.

Still, the coast guard is calling off their search, even as family members refuse to give up hope. “He doesn’t back down,” Bruce Cooper said of his son Marquis. “He’s just an extreme fighter. What I’m holding on to is that he’s out in the water right now, just fighting.”  [Photo: GettyImages]

Weeping Giants Fan Brings Joy To New England, World

Normally, we take little pleasure in watching people cry, but this clip of a Giants fan freaking out after their playoff loss to the Eagles is too good to turn off. We like to imagine Tom Brady watching this on his 12-foot flat screen TV in his massive NYC loft, cuddling Gisele under his beefy arm and nursing a scotch with the other. Surely he’s enjoying it as much as we are. Watch above (some language is NSFW).  [Via Buzzfeed]

Fox Shows Footballer Wang On National TV

Yesterday, following their win over the Detroit Lions, the Minnesota Vikings gathered in their dressing room to present the game ball to the team’s coach, Brad Childress, whose son is joining the Marine Corps this week. Yet what should have been a sentimental moment was quickly turned sexy when Fox accidentally showed tight end Visanthe Shiancoe in the shot, standing completely naked behind team owner Zygmunt Wilf, who was presenting the football.

Whoops! Maybe it’s time for the Vikings to express themselves on another one of those notorious, orgy-filled booze cruises they’re known for? You can peep the uncensored version here (NSFW, ya know); we’ve blocked out all the wang action for your sensitive eyes above.  [Photo: Deadspin]

Meet Hank Baskett: The Dude Who Stole Kendra From Hef

Kendra Wilkinson has barely moved out of the Playboy mansion – where she’s lived with boyfriend Hugh Hefner and fellow girlfriends Bridget and Holly for four years – and already she’s engaged to another man. The mysterious love machine who yanked Kendra away from her 82-year-old dreamboat is Hank Baskett, a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles. Let’s get to know the future Mr. Kendra Wilkinson, shall we?

  • Full name: Henry Randall Baskett III
  • Age: 26 years old (Kendra is just 23)
  • Life Story: Hank grew up in New Mexico where he excelled at academics, track, basketball and of course, football. He was the leading receiver at the University of New Mexico for two years, where he perfected his football skills.
  • Football Deets: Baskett ended up on the Eagles in 2007, after being drafted by the Minnesota Vikings. He was named a special MVP for the season last year as a rookie.
  • How He Landed Kendra: The couple allegedly has been together (Kendra listed him as her hero on her MySpace page) for a little while, and engagement rumors first popped up in late September. He proposed atop the Space Needle in Seattle, with both their families apparently present. Sources say Kendra was totally shocked and surprised, but said yes, obviously.
  • Just How Hot Is This Guy? Check out our pics below to find out.

Pats Cheerleader: I Didn’t Draw Penises On My Friend!

Our new favorite cheerleader, Caitlin Davis (seen above in skimpier gear), has come forward to claim that she was not responsible for drawing penises, swastikas, and offensive words on a friend. Pictures of Davis posing with the kid in question leaked onto the internet this week and secured her termination from the Patriots cheerleading squad. Her excuse is reminiscent of something we told our parents back in the day: “The kid in the picture was a ‘drunk guy who passed out and was written on,’ as his costume for the night.”

Ah, the old ‘blame the other guy’ trick! She then describes what went down that night in a Boston College dorm:

“Me and my girls left the dorm and went to another house and came back to the kid passed out on the futon we were suppose to sleep on. The guys ended up drawing more on him due to the fact that he was the first one to pass out on Halloween night … At the time I had jumped in the picture with the kid, I didn’t realize what had been drawn on him, which I take responsibility for not being alert. Me and my girlfirends [sic] took pictures with him because we found it humorous how badly he was drawn on.”

It seems like a pretty convenient excuse to us and we doubt the Patriots are buying it, but maybe a reality show casting director will. Caitlin seems perfect for the tiny, trashy screen, doesn’t she?  For more pics of Caitlin and her former squad, click below.  [Photo: BustedCoverage]
