Kanye West And Kim Kardashian Take On Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel As The Cutest Lakers Couple

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Get Cuddley At A Lakers Game

 

Love was in there air at the Lakers game on Saturday as two of Hollywood’s biggest couples made their way to the Staples Center and caught game seven of the Western Conference Quarterfinals. Newly minted mega-duo/future legal battle Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were spotted courtside cuddling together and holding hands, seeming very much in photographer-friendly love. The two only had eyes for each other, and it’s not hard to see why when you get a look at Kim’s skin tight leather mini-dress. Yeezy must have had a hard time keeping his mind (and eyes) on the game!

As cozy as they looked, the two declined a chance to be on the infamous Kiss-Cam. However, fellow super cute super couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel weren’t as shy, and gleefully went at it for the spectators. JT even stood up to cheer for the team and give Laker legend Kobe Bryant a high five! Which twosome was the most adorable Lakers couple? Check out the photos in the gallery below and let us know in the poll!

NFL Legend Junior Seau Found Dead Of Suspected Suicide

We aren’t typically the most sports-oriented blog, but we think everyone has to give pause when a massive talent passes on. According to TMZ, retired NFL star Junior Seau was tragically found dead in his California home of a suspected suicide earlier today. According to a representative from the Oceanside Police Department, Seau was discovered by his girlfriend. After a 911 call was placed around 10:00am this morning, authorities allegedly found the former linebacker dead of a gunshot wound.

Seau spent most of his career playing for the San Diego Chargers, leaving the team after twelve years to joint the Miami Dolphins and finally the New England Patriots. Junior retired in 2010, and leaves behind three children. “I’m going to go surf. Whatever happens, I can say, honestly say, that that probably was my last game,” Seau told Showtime after announcing his retirement. “Everyone at the Chargers is in complete shock and disbelief right now,” said Seau’s former team in a statement, “We ask everyone to stop what they’re doing and send their prayers to Junior and his family.” Our thoughts go out to Seau’s family, and all the fans he thrilled in his 19-year-long career.

Billy Bob Thornton Defends Former Red Sox Manager Terry Francona

We know baseball isn’t normally covered here at TheFABlife, but Billy Bob Thornton‘s passionate declaration of support for former Red Sox manager Terry “Tito”Francona was too good not to post. The actor is a huge baseball geek and St. Louis Cardinals fan (OMG, last night’s game!), and when we caught up with him at the Puss in Boots premiere he defended the fallen manager from critics who blame him for the Red Sox’s demise this season. “I think he’s a great manager,” the actor told us. “I think he got a raw deal in the press.”

For those of you not caught up with your sports drama: Francona is a fan favorite who led the team to two World Series wins in the last decade. But his record was tarnished by this season’s colossal collapse, in which the Sox blew a 9-game lead in September and failed to make the playoffs. Rumors of beer-drinking in the dugout during games and general slacking off by players only further infuriated fans, and Terry left his post (or was pushed out by team management) a couple days after the season ended. Since Tito’s departure everything from his marital issues to alleged prescription drug habits have been mentioned as a reason for the team’s failings. But Billy Bob has come to the manager’s defense! See what the Oscar-winning actor has to say about Francona in our interview above.

Lady Gaga Pours One Out For Her Home Team

We remember from the Lady Gaga Mets game debacle last year that the woman loves her New York teams as much as she hates wearing flats. Which is why we’re not surprised to see Lady Gaga photos pop up from yesterday’s game between the New York Giants and the St. Louis Rams. The Giants won at their own MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, so the real question is, who is Gaga pouring one out for? The death of Jo Calderone? The fans she’s about to lose when they look up and see who’s dumping alcohol all over them? On the flip side, the slim possibility that Lady Gaga would throw champagne on our heads is probably the only way we’d be able to make it through an entire professional football game. We’d buy season tickets if we thought it’d be a repeat performance.

Softball Star Jennie Finch Gives Birth To Son Diesel Dean Daigle

Jennie Finch may be the most famous softball player ever after her two Olympic medals and stint on The Celebrity Apprentice, but now she’s getting attention for the bad-ass names she and husband Casey Daigle of the San Francisco Giants are dropping on their kids. Finch just gave birth to their second son, Diesel Dean Daigle, late Sunday night. ““We are so completely grateful and beyond blessed,” Finch told People. “Casey and I are excited for our sweet precious Baby D! Ace couldn’t be any more pumped to be a big brother to Diesel.”

In case you were unclear, the “Ace” she’s referring to his Diesel Dean’s 5-year-old brother Ace Shane Daigle. With Finch having retired from the game to focus on raising her family, here’s hoping they keep bringing us little sluggers with names like Pyro Peter, Thunder Henry and Bolt Maverick. With their genes, these kids could be ruling Major League Baseball in twenty or so years.

Hayden Panettiere Hanging Out With NY Jets QB Mark Sanchez

Well, he’s certainly her type. Less than a month after splitting from hulking boyfriend Vladimir Klitschko, Hayden Panettiere stepped out with New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez and another couple to get some In-N-Out Burger in Laguna Hills Monday. TerezOwens said last week that Hayden and Mark were initially friends, with the Heroes star making romantic moves after she was dumped by the 6’6″ Ukranian boxer. While Mark Sanchez is only 6’2″, that’s still a solid foot above Hayden’s height—more than enough for the Jet to qualify as a suitable rebound hunk.

Despite posting photos of Hayden & Mark’s “date,” RumorFix says their source claims the pair are “just friends.” That’s all well and good, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Klitschko called up some tiny, blond European “friends” to grab some chow as soon as he saw the shots. How long before musical loving Mark takes the lady to a Broadway premiere?

Kobe Bryant Fined $100,000 For Use Of Homophobic Slur On Court

There’s a bit of a stop-gap between your head and your mouth, Kobe Bryant. You might want to use it to filter what’s coming out of there. Kobe’s been fined $100,000 by the NBA after calling referee  Beanie Adams a “f—ing f—ot”. Adams had called out Bryant for a technical foul, which the athlete clearly did not agree with. Unfortunately for him, the extremely homophobic slur he chose to respond it, was caught on camera. And what’s even worse is that it all went down on live television.

The NBA are so on his case with commissioner David Stern stating, “Kobe Bryant’s comment during last night’s game was offensive and inexcusable. While I’m fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated.” A contrite Kobe has issued a statement that reads, “My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone.”

Kobe plans to appeal the fine which apparently is standard practice, but has also apologized to the Human Rights Campaign and has won over their head, Joe Solmonese. They had a conversation on the phone and Solmonese told TMZ, ” …We had a very sincere conversation in which he expressed his heartfelt regret for the hurt that his words caused. He told me that it’s never OK to degrade or tease, and that he understands how his words could unfortunately give the wrong impression that this is appropriate conduct…I applaud Kobe for coming forward and taking responsibility for his actions.” Tell us what you think, people? Is the fine enough? Should he be let off the hook? Should his punishment be stricter?

Serena Williams Hospitalized

What kind of world do we live in where the drug-ravaged body of Charlie Sheen endures with no problems, and yet one of the world’s best athletes, Serena Williams, is hospitalized for a blood clot? A terrible, unfair one, clearly. Tennis star Williams was taken to the hospital on Monday night as a result of complications from a pulmonary embolism which is a blood clot in her lungs. The clot led to a hematoma which required emergency treatment at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Williams currently remains under a doctor’s care. Get well soon, Serena!
