We’re on day 6 of the 2013 Bikini Awards, and it’s time we make things a little more equal opportunity around here. Yes, it’s the men’s turn to parade before our eyes in their beachy best. Thankfully, no Speedos were harmed in the making of this gallery.
The NBA finals kicked off last Thursday night, and before either the Miami Heat or the San Antonio Spurs bask in the glory of being 2013′s national champions, we’re taking a moment to recognize the league’s tall drinks of water for other skills: their ability to dress.
Everyone’s feet take a beating in the summer. We can’t even imagine what it’s like for the feet of professional athletes — let alone an NBA champion like Dwyane Wade. So we totally understand if the dude wants to pamper himself a little, now that the season’s over, and get a nice pedicure. We like to imagine that he and gf Gabrielle Union went together. But we’re on the fence about his decision to paint his toenails. Maybe he’s got a couple of bruised-black toes and wants to hide them under this attractive polish?
“Matte black paint… RockStar ish,” Wade wrote as a caption to the above Instagram. Does he mean “rock star ish,” or “rock-star-ish”? And is this all just a late entry into our list of the 25 most scandalous celebrity Twitpics of the year so far? We’ll file this away for consideration at the end of 2012. In the meantime, counting down the minutes until other guys jump on this trend. Let’s get some nail art in there, too, boys!

While George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis haven’t spoken about their sudden split yet, gossipmongers aren’t afraid to connect the dots. And the picture everyone’s drawing that confirmed bachelor Clooney probably didn’t like what Canalis’ ambitions to marry—someday. “I could never be with someone who every time he opens his mouth says he doesn’t want a child with me or to marry me,” she told an Italian magazine earlier this month, adding. “Who knows what will happen? I am a firm believer in marriage, in the future I will be married, but for the time being I am happy as I am.” Canalis dismissed any idea that Clooney would be anxious, saying “My boyfriend has not given an interview on his private life since 1999—everything that you read is just a rehash of stuff that has been written in the past,” but he actually confirmed his anti-marriage status to Piers Morgan last January (“I was married, so I gave it a shot”). Elisabetta must not have been watching.
As for the timing of the reveal, a source tells E! we should have seen this coming—since Clooney always drops his marriage-hungry lovers right before his annual friends-and-family trip to Lake Como in Italy. “He’s been trying to figure out how to get out of this for a while. Remember that ding-dong Sarah Larson George was dating? Same thing happened. Right before Como, they broke up. I’m telling you, it’s the same thing here.” The new “ding-dong” doesn’t seem to be too upset though, as Canalis and Dwyane Wade were reportedly “extra flirty” the DSquared2 show in Milan Tuesday. Clooney’s friends may claim the language barrier was an issue for him and the Italian model (“She was always shy…unsure of herself”), but an NBA star might be willing to ignore it…at least long enough for her to rebound.
