Angelina Pivarnick Is Moonlighting As A Wrestler

Angelina Pivarnick is having a busy 2011. The Jersey Shore star just got engaged, so of course a week later she did what any traditional, betrothed young woman would do and signed up for a celebrity wrestling show. Yes, Pivarnick will participate in a TNA Wrestling match which will air on Spike TV’s show iMPACT. She will tag team with a Snooki look-alike named Cookie. A girl’s gotta pay for her wedding somehow.

Never again will we mock The Situation for being on Dancing With The Stars, that was downright classy compared to watching the one they call the “Staten Island Dump” get thrown against the ropes.

Kanye West And Rihanna To Perform “All Of The Lights” At NBA All-Star Game

Kanye West was conspicuously absent from the 2011 Grammy Awards ceremony this weekend, most likely because his stunning new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, won’t be Grammy eligible until next year. Well, the Grammy’s loss is the NBA All-Star Game’s gain, as word has just broken that Yeezy and Rihanna will be performing that album’s masterful centerpiece, “All Of The Lights,” during halftime on Sunday. Rumors of this exciting development broke first on the dirt digging sports blog Deadspin this morning, but our friends over at MTV’s Rap Fix just confirmed that the collaboration will indeed be happening.

In slightly less exciting news, Josh Groban is set to perform the national anthem before the game. Will you be watching?

New York Jets Star Mark Sanchez In Hot Water After Alleged “Hook Up” With 17 Year-Old High School Student

Yesterday afternoon, the dirt digging sports blog Deadspin published a story called “The Somewhat Romantic Story Of Mark Sanchez And A 17-Year-Old Girl,” a not-so-heartfelt tale of a recent romantic dalliance between the handsome New York Jets quarterback and a Connecticut high school student. While Deadspin only referred to the girl as E.K., this morning the New York Post outed the student as Eliza Kruger, a “sexy rich girl” (their words, not ours) whose father is, in the words of Business Insider, “super-rich hedge funder” Chip Kruger.

According to Deadspin, Eliza Kruger first met the 24 year-old Mark Sanchez on New Year’s Eve at the Manhattan nightclub Lavo. The two exchanged digits and the textual flirting went from there. Eventually, Sanchez and Kruger went on a date at the famed sushi joint Nobu, after which the pair returned to Sanchez’s New Jersey home and “hooked up.” After the deed, she snapped some pictures of Sanchez’s bedroom, which Deadspin published.

What’s Grosser Than Gross? Cameron Diaz Feeding A-Rod Popcorn

As the clock turns 4 p.m. this afternoon here on the East Coast, our guacamole-and-Bud-Light-induced hangover is finally receding from the beachhead it established in our frontal cortex early this morning, which means we’re just now starting to be able to look back at Super Bowl XLV and parse out exactly what happened. Yes, Christina Aguilera flubbed the lyrics to the national anthem somethin’ fierce, Groupon decimated all of the goodwill they had built up thanks to one a tone deaf ad and the Black Eyed Peas turned in a lamentable halftime performance but, thankfully, those aren’t the kinds of moments that will haunt us in our sleep for all eternity. However, the same cannot be said for the ghastly three seconds of footage that Fox aired yesterday of Cameron Diaz feeding Alex Rodriguez popcorn.

If you have a strong enough stomach, follow along for our frame-by-frame breakdown of what was going through A-Rod’s head during the most traumatic thing to happen to the popcorn industry since the death of Orville Redenbacher.

Christina Aguilera Messes Up National Anthem At The Super Bowl

Between the wardrobe malfunctions, ridiculous commercials, and the game itself, it’s always fun to watch the Super Bowl and discuss it the morning after. It’s rare that the National Anthem causes a controversy though, but we’re feeling for Christina Aguilera right now because she is certainly going to be a part of the water cooler discussion on Monday, and not for her brilliant rendition of the song. Aguilera messed up the lyrics to The Star-Spangled Banner tonight while singing at Super Bowl XLV in front of, oh, 100 million viewers. In case you missed it, go to the video and see if you can figure out which part she got wrong. Hint: She never did watch those ramparts.

First Burlesque and now this? Girl, we feel for you.

Justin Bieber Gets Booed By Hostile Crowd At Madison Square Garden, Possibly Signaling End Of Bieber Fever (Update: Now With Video!)

UPDATE (10:52pm): Now with video! Click here to watch Justin Bieber get booed (VIDEO).

Is the beginning of the end near for Justin Bieber? The diminuitive, well-coiffed Canadian pop star attended the big New York City premiere of his new 3D epic, Never Say Never, at Manhattan’s Regal E-Walk 13 theater (which, if we’re being completely honest with you, is NOT exactly the swankiest movie palace in town). For a man with as much star power and juice as Justin Bieber supposedly possesses, the film didn’t draw many A-Listers on opening night. Hip-hop impresarios Russell Simmons and L.A. Reid were there, as were Spike Lee, Deborah Norville and Stephen Baldwin (who, we might add, is also tight with Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus), but the likes of Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and Jasmine Villegas were nowhere to be found on the red carpet. However, the night only got worse for our boy Biebs.

According to dozens of Twitter feeds, Justin Bieber hit the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden tonight and, when shown on in the in-house Jumbotron, was loudly booed by those in attendance. Popular NBA Twitter feed @offseasonblog reported that “Biebs is wearing a purple bow tie at the Knicks and got booed,” while VH1′s own @samdotcom wrote that “The Biebs got booed at MSG. Girl broke thru security to touch him; she returned to her seat sobbing & shaking.” And if you search Twitter for “Bieber booed” now, you’ll see literally hundreds of tweets and retweets.

These Lakers Are Making Me Hungry

SPL239523_005

Celebrities are often seen lurking courtside at the Staples Center for L.A. Lakers games. Sometimes you get your traditional cool celebs like Jack Nicholson and Leo DiCaprio just chillin’ in the stands, sometimes you get the mind-blowing combination of Chloe Sevigny and Pauly D, and sometimes you get a bunch of people who are so starving they don’t care who sees them stuff their faces. At last night’s game, there must have been something in the air that was making people feel hunger pangs, because everyone was chowing down. Take a look at who was eating what as the Lakers defeated the Cavs.

Brett Favre And The Jets Get Sued For Harassment

17333309

Geez, you send a lady photos of your penis once and all of a sudden you’re a sexual harasser. Brett Favre has been under fire for a few months now, ever since he allegedly sent lewd texts to New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger and it’s about to get worse.

He was already fined $50k for his behavior, but now Favre is being sued by two more women who claim he sexually harassed them in 2008. The Jets are also named in the suit, which was filed by two of the team’s former massage therapists, Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole. The women claim that Favre propositioned them for a three-way, texting O’Toole with the message “Brett here, you and Crissy want to get together, I’m all alone.” After demanding apologies and rejecting his advances, the women say they were not hired back for their services, which is why they filed the suit.

Favre had no comment on the allegations, but you just know he wants this story to have a happy ending.

Brett Favre’s Bill For Sexting Jenn Sterger Runs Him $50,000

favre-sterger-550rnrnAfter months of investigation, the National Football League has decided to fine Brett Favre $50,000 for not being “candid” during the investigation as to whether or not he sent lewd pictures of his junk to New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback and NFL legend managed to avoid a sexual harassment suspension because there was not enough forensic evidence to determine whether pictures of said junk was actually Favre’s, um, unit. However, if the pictures that Deadspin published were actually of Favre’s dong, we can rightfully determine that the NFL fined him roughly $16,667 for every inch of penis he sexted to Sterger.rnrn[Photos: Getty Images]
