How rigorous is the vetting process involved in bestowing the very prestigious title of Miss Bumbum onto the finest bum in all the land? Brazil has quite the reputation in regards to the derriere, so they had better take it seriously. I do not want to see even one single subpar behind among the contestants. If I wanted to see a disappointing ass then I would not have covered the mirror on my closet door with newspaper. Getting up in the morning is hard enough; there is no need to make it worse by reminding myself that my ass is so flat old men try to use it as a table to play chess. But as I always say, it isn’t my problem, it is the problem of my future wife.
I would also like to know how one becomes a judge for the Miss Bumbum competition. If all it takes is a light background check to ensure one is not a registered sex offender then I would like to throw my hat in the ring. I may not have a great ass, but I have spent so much time looking at them I might as well be awarded an honorary doctorate.

I love pitting two friends against each other. It reminds me of the time I had I forgot to feed my fish for a couple days when I was ten and when I came back there was only one. The way I see it, I did them a favor. Had they not gone through such a hard time together they would have never figured out how strong their friendship was. And as it turns out, it was not strong at all. It couldn’t even survive a little light starvation.
That is why I am so curious to see how naming one of these besties as a favorite is going to effect the future of their friendship. Clearly the hotter one is Kayleigh Morris. The girl is stacked stronger than Lincoln Logs. Now the only question is how Jasmin Walia is going to handle that news. Will she “accidently” spill boiling hot water onto Kayleigh? Will Kayleigh’s brake lines inexplicably fail? Or will Kayleigh be the one to change? Will she start treating Jasmin as a personal assistant? Or like some serf that she shouldn’t be associating with.
It is hard to say. I guess it all depends on how highly they hold my opinion, which I think it is safe to assume is very high.

Kaitlyn Herman is out of the Big Brother house, and Sunday’s episode proved that the rest of the cast could the drama without her in the house.
With Kaitlyn being evicted 9-1 against Rockstar, her former houseguests wondered where that extra vote came from.
Viewers knew it was JC, but most others seemed to think it was Tyler because they thought he and Kaitlyn were closer in the game than they were being led to believe.
JC planned to spread paranoia around the house because it would help keep the target off himself. He was campaigning to send Kaitlyn out the door for much of last week.
Scottie started to act stranger than usual, and everyone concluded that he must be the one who flipped.
The HOH competition was mostly a game of chance. The houseguests were tasked with sliding on a bit of wood and get to get to the other end of a platform in 8 seconds.
Bayliegh was the lucky victor, and she immediately got to work to find out who to put up on the block.
Her pool of targets was revealed to be Brett, Scottie, and JC, but Faysal was not going to stand for JC to be put on the block.
He said that Rachel would be a better option against Brett because he knew that putting two people from the other side of the house would give them the numbers.
Bayliegh turned to Haleigh to let her know that Faysal would do anything to keep JC in the game. It resulted in a blow-up between the two women and Faysal.
Faysal was furious that Haleigh would question his loyalty after he saved her from the block with the veto last week, but the three of them managed to patch things up.
As Bayliegh was in a tailspin wondering what to do about the nominations, she turned to Rachel and asked that she would go up as a pawn to get Brett out.
Bayliegh said she had a good reason for it: Scottie was running his mouth and saying that Rachel was the liar and that she needed to be sent home.
To get Rachel on her side, Bayliegh told her about the Identity Theft power and the Vegas actress was blindsided by it. Rachel was not impressed about going on the block but liked that she got some intel from Bayliegh.
Will she tell her allies or will she keep quiet about it?
As for Bayliegh, she confirmed in the DR that things could change in the next few days, likely alluding to JC or Scottie being put up if someone comes down.
What are your thoughts on the latest episode?
Will Bayliegh change her target?

Tom Arnold really hates Donald Trump, and like most people who really hate Donald Trump, he’s convinced that the Russian government has a video of Trump paying hookers to piss on a bed because Barack Obama once slept in said bed, an unverified claim by a former MI6 agent hired by the Clinton campaign to do opposition research on Donald Trump in a dossier so full of misinformation it’s made it impossible to separate fact from conspiracy theory about Trump’s involvement with Russia for most people. On his new A&E docuseries, Arnold is looking for the pee tape as well as other embarrassing footage of Donald Trump in an effort to force him to resign from office.
I hate to break it to Tom Arnold but there was a tape of Trump telling Billy Bush he can grab women by the pussy because he’s rich that came out before he was elected, so I highly doubt anything he finds is going to be so embarrassing Trump is forced to resign over it. There was also that whole thing where he had embarrassingly bad sex with a porn star and just this week a new thing where he bought the rights to a story about an affair he had with a Playboy model and despite all that he’s got a higher approval rating among Republicans than Ronald Reagan. Like, even if there was a video of him watching hookers pee on Obama’s bed, what are the odds that a single Trump supporter doesn’t just say “Oh wow, that’s funny, I hate Obama, too!” There will be political cartoons of Trump peeing on Obama’s head giving a thumbs while the Statue of Liberty and the Founding Fathers give him a standing ovation. Deadline reported that Arnold seemed unconcerned about the Republicans’ unwavering support for Trump at a press conference for his new show.
“I want to do this until he resigns. He’s a crazy person putting the country on the precipice of war…Things are going on right now that affect our world and that are scary,” Arnold ranted during a wild stream-of-consciousness Q&A for his program. “And, for some reason, I’m in a position to do something and it’s working and I will continue to do this until that guy resigns and the world is a little bit safer. And it is going to happen.”
“And this. And this 40% – f*ck em. Seriously,” he said, wrapping up the answer to Question No. 1 about eight minutes after it was asked.
Arnold has apparently also gotten his hands on behind the scenes footage from Trump’s time on The Apprentice, and he had nothing nice to say about producer Mark Burnett.
“I would love Mark Burnett that sits at that [National] Prayer Breakfast. I’d like him to stand and up” and talk about the “lies and sexual harassment and incompetence” of Trump, the comic said.
“I’m going to keep hammering Burnett until he shows” those tapes,” Arnold announced, claiming Burnett has tape of Trump using “the n-word,” among other incidents that might actually embarrass any other President of the United States.
Burnett, Arnold said, “sits next to Donald Trump and gives him cover.”
Burnett says he’s a Christian, and lets that man do all this bullshit and let a sexual harasser on this show,” Arnold scoffed.
Donald Trump saying the n-word is the maybe least surprising thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life. Literally the only thing less surprising would be finding out Tom Arnold is on coke.

Back in May, TransLink British Columbia announced that Morgan Freeman would be lending his buttery-smooth voice to a public announcement campaign.
— Stephanie Ip (@stephanie_ip) May 22, 2018
It seemed perfect, though the reporter delivering the announcement speculated that Canadian actor Seth Rogen may have been a better choice, because Canadians are all caught up on using Canadian actors for things. I mean Corner Gas is pretty good, but something like 90% of Canadian actors are on low-budget CW shows.
Lots of emails today were along the lines of: "What, there wasn't a Canadian actor who could've done the job?" After some thought, I do have a suggestion: @Sethrogen. I would happily listen to him announce my transit stops all day, every day BUT ONLY IF IT COMES WITH THE LAUGH. https://t.co/o0v5FWlocj
— Stephanie Ip (@stephanie_ip) May 23, 2018
Anyway, literally the day after Stephanie Ip made the suggestion, the story that Morgan Freeman was a serial workplace sexual harasser broke. That is some bad timing for Canada, but Seth being Seth actually stepped up and offered to replace Freeman.
Yo if they need a replacement now let me know.
— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) May 24, 2018
And today, two months later almost to the day, TransLink announced Seth Rogen would in fact be voicing their public service campaign.
And proving that lightning is capable of striking twice and Canada has more than one star, a suggestion that Nathan Fielder record automated messages for the Vancouver Airport was met with an enthusiastic (for Nathan Fielder, anyway, I imagine it was actually monotone and deadpan) yes.
I will 100% do this https://t.co/nqmnkNQzYt

I wouldn’t be averse to replacing Morgan Freeman with Seth Rogen in everything. Especially Driving Miss Daisy. It would bring a whole new energy to that movie if Jessica Tandy learns about not being a racist through her friendship with a stoned white guy in his 30s. You could even change the ending from that depressing nursing home thing to the two of them getting baked and having a rave where Jessica Tandy raps. I would watch that movie.

I do not know that I can trust the quality of these shoes. If they were really up to snuff then Paris would be wearing them while walking over broken glass and hot coals. But instead she has chosen to place them on top of her naked breast. In my mind that can only mean one thing: The sole is made out of broken glass, or possibly hot coals.
That is the only logical conclusion that a sane person can come to. If they were really comfortable shoes then she would have them on, right? She would not have to rely on her sex appeal.
And for Paris’s sake I really hope those shoes are not made out of real animal fur. Otherwise she is opening herself up to a world of pain at the hands of animal rights activists. Their heckling can be brutal, and they have no respect for personal property. They will not hesitate to throw a bucket of red paint on you.
The paint was always an odd choice to me. I understand that it represents the blood that has been spilled, but I think they would be better off throwing a bucket of human blood that is AB-. Hardly anyone uses that stuff anyway.

I see Nikki Mudarris is a woman that doesn’t like to play around. She gets straight to the point. Some ladies cover up their awesome curves, Nikki puts them on display. I’m not exactly sure how feminism works, but I think she’s got the hang of it. Because she sure looks empowered with side of confidence that has me slow clapping at the moment for her choice of attire. I think I’m her number one fan. I need to find out what places she frequents so I can hold up a sign that says “Nikki, Nikki, please be with me.”
This walking dream of a woman has me wishing that I could be her Santa Claus. I just need to know if she’s been naughty or nice this year. Either way she’s still getting a bag full of great gifts from me. Because even after a full year of being naughty, people can turn their lives around. But I doubt she’s into devious and mischievous activities. An angel face like her looks like she’s nice all of the time. As I always say, if she’s nice to look at, it must mean that she’s a nice person on the inside too.

What does it feel like to have butt implants? Having your breasts enlarged probably does not affect the owner’s day to day life much once they get used to the increase in weight. There might be a slight decrease in mobility, but if the size difference is not too dramatic then I would bet in most cases it is negligible.
I think the ass would be a different beast. People use their asses constantly. I am sitting on mine right now. I am assuming that ass implants would feel a lot like breast implants, and to me that seems like it would be an odd sensation to be sitting on. It would be like taking the gel inserts from your shoes and stuffing them in your boxers, only the inserts are no longer a quarter inch thick.
Hopefully the surgeon gets the size and placement right, otherwise that would lead to a lifetime of discomfort. I cannot even stand having my wallet in my back pocket, I cannot imagine carrying around lopsided cheeks all day. But at the very least Marnie never has to deal with pain of bleachers again, she has her seat cushion everywhere she goes.

Edgar Hansen, one of the stars on the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch, pleaded guilty in court late last week to the sexual abuse of a 16-year old.
According to The Seattle Times, Hansen confessed to a charge of fourth-degree assault with sexual motivation on Friday.
In exchange for his plea, he received a 364-day suspended prison sentence and was ordered to undergo a sexual deviance evaluation.
He also received two years’ probation and various fees and fines totaling $1,653, with an additional $4,800 fine suspended, court records show.
Hansen will not serve any time behind bars.
The 47-year old fisherman is the deck boss and key crew member of a Seattle-based crabbing boat helmed by his older brother, Sig Hansen.
The siblings have risen to fame and fortune due to their popular Discovery Channel reality series.
As for the details of this ugly case?
A 16-year-old girl told her therapist in October of last year that Hansen sexually assaulted her at a suburban Seattle home on September 30, 2017.
The aforementioned newspaper cited a probable-cause affidavit filed in Snohomish County District Court to back up this allegation.
This teenager also relayed to the police these same allegations.
In a brief handwritten statement accompanying his guilty plea, Hansen acknowledged “touching [the victim’s] private areas … for the purpose of my own sexual gratification.”
“I committed this assault… I am very sorry for that conduct and I have commenced treatment to ensure that nothing like this assault ever happens again.”
The victim (unnamed because she is a minor) said Hansen “kissed her on the lips, touched her vagina and had her touch his penis,” prosecutors said in their probable cause affidavit.
Investigators also spoke with Hansen’s wife, who said she “confronted him” after learning of the abuse.
He “initially denied” it, but “eventually admitted that he kissed [the victim] and touched her inappropriately.”
Edgar Hansen’s guilty plea comes just weeks after his famous brother, Sig, was sentenced to probation for spitting on an Uber driver last year.
This Deadliest Catch caption was given a deferred sentence, ordered to undergo alcohol treatment and placed on a year of probation.
Sig told People Magazine at the time that he was “terribly sorry” and “very embarrassed” for his role in this incident.
Sig Hansen is also currently awaiting a decision from the state Court of Appeals over a King County judge’s ruling that would allow a sexual-abuse lawsuit brought by his estranged daughter, Melissa Eckstrom, to proceed to trial.
He has denied her claims referring to Eckstrom’s law suit “an old-fashioned shakedown.”
Also of note, in regard to Deadliest Catch, Blake Painter, a former captain on the show, died in May of a suspected drug overdose.
Neither Hansen sibling nor any Discovery Channel representative has spoken yet on Edgar Hansen’s crime.
Sacha Baron Cohen is returning to television this Sunday on Showtime whether America likes it or not.
America does not like.
At least the American politicians he tricked to be on the show, which includes, but is not limited to, Sarah Palin and Roy Moore.
Palin was the first to put out a statement once Cohen’s new show was revealed to the world. She told The Daily Mail that she believed she was speaking to a disabled US veteran when she agreed to the interview.
“Out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform, I sat through a long ‘interview’ full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm, but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out, much to Cohen’s chagrin.
“The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen’s foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse.”
Palin then challenged “shallow boy Sacha” and Showtime to air the footage, but to then donate all proceeds to a charity that supports veterans.
Moore released a statement on the matter and threatened to sue Showtime for defamation of character.

Ahahaha, he really thought he was getting some “Israel support” award. “As an Alabamian, I believe in truth and honesty.” And sexual misconduct. Don’t forget about sexual misconduct.
Seeing this as an opportunity to further push his show, Cohen delivered an in-character response.
— Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., PhD (@BillyWRuddick) July 12, 2018
Billy Wayne Ruddick claims to be the man who interviewed Palin. He doesn’t cop to any wrongdoings or misleadings and demands an apology from Palin. Of course, he works in shots at Trump and Palin in the process.
As if I wasn’t excited for Cohen’s new show already.

Chris Brown had just finished a concert in Tampa, Florida when the cops showed up to arrest him. The concert was that bad.
Actually, Brown had a felony assault warrant out for his arrest stemming from an April 2017 incident where he clocked a photographer.
Brown allegedly sucker punched the photographer for doing his job and taking photos of the singer at an appearance at AJA Channelside. The photographer ended up with a cut lip. Dude got in a cheap shot and the end result was a cut lip? He should have been arrested for throwing a weak ass punch.
Brown left after the punch occurred. Following the incident, AJA Channelside put out a statement on their Facebook page.
“Incidents like the ones caused by Chris Brown and his team are very sad to see. As everyone witnessed he showed up to the club at around 1:30am. After only a few minutes of being there, Chris Brown himself and his team assaulted our club photographer and proceeded to walk out of the venue.”
“AJA Channelside and our employees apologize for the inconvenience Assault charges were pressed and we are dealing with the proper authorities accordingly. We appreciate your constant support!”
If you ask me, it’s the venue’s fault for paying Brown to appear.
Brown was released on $2,000 bail.

Brazilian Singer Anitta Shows Off Her Best Assets In Some Must-See Sexy Outfits During Her World Tour
Brazil is great at a lot of things, like producing amazing athletes in the World Cup and providing a home to one sultry sensational singer named Anitta. Her last name should be “more of that” because Anitta more of that as soon as possible. She’s everything I asked for from a woman in one sweet package. And it only gets better because she loves the beach and bright colors. Any lady who loves to relax along the shore in an outfit that will allow me to find her miles away is alright with me. What more can a man want than a hot talented wife that could sing him to sleep with a lovely lullaby. If you couldn’t tell I’m working up the nerve to ask her to marry me. I should probably work on letting her know I exist first but I’m a man that likes to get straight to the point.
Call me crazy but she’s the prettiest women I’ve seen from Brazil. She’s also the only woman I’ve seen from Brazil outside of a postcard or close up of soccer fans so my opinion is pretty limited but still important. Actually, I may never need to see another woman from Brazil as long as I can stare at Anitta.

I have given up on anything of Nicki Minaj’s accidentally being revealed by her clothing. Instead, I have come to the conclusion that she is a genius in the PR department, or employs someone who is.
There is no way that a woman with her proportions can wear clothing that are as revealing as hers without there being a malfunction more often than not. I mean, I wear traditional jeans most days and I still regularly fail to have my zipper in the closed position. So if I am able to make that mistake, or rather the zipper company can make so many flawed products, then I think it is equally as plausible that Nicki would run into similar troubles if these outfits were as organic as we are led to believe.
That is why I think this is all carefully orchestrated. These costumes are made with the necessary precision to keep the right parts covered just enough, while giving us all the expectation of seeing something slip out. In my opinion that is bordering on false advertisement. So if something does not pop open soon she might be opening herself up to some legal troubles.

GOLD MINE: All The Very Hottest Bikini And Lingerie Models From The 2018 Moda Calida Fashion Collection
I always had a feeling that 2018 was going to be a great year. If anyone needs proof that my prediction became a reality they don’t have to look much further than the 2018 Moda Calida Fashion Collective. It’s an entire collection of the hottest women you’ll lay eyes on all year. All under one roof. If it was up to me I would buy three tickets for me, myself, and I. Because it’s impossible to get enough of any of these women working their stuff on the runway. Talk about talented. The ladies earned every penny they are being paid and then some. Because being that hot is priceless.
I wonder if you need a degree to help women settle into their bikini because I would sure love a job doing that backstage. I support women in the best way I can. I would never want to see a woman accidentally twist her wrist attempting to tie the back strings of her bikini all by herself. Just the idea of a woman struggling to put on her bathing suit alone makes my heart sink. As long as I’m around no woman will ever have to worry about tying themselves. I’d make a nice tight bow on their back like I was tying a ribbon on a present. Because they are all truly gifts to look at.

We interrupt ongoing speculation over Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s love lives in order to bring you factual news on their parental front.
Just about two years after they stunned the world with their divorce news, the A-List stars have amended their custody arrangement for the summer.
According to a variety of new court documents, the Superior Court of Los Angeles County has determined that “not having a relationship with their father” would be “harmful” to Jolie and Pitt’s six kids.
(They, of course, would be: Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9.)
The court writes that the offspring of this former couple “are safe with their father” and that it is “critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship” with both of their parents.
(However, it’s worth noting that Maddox is basically free to spent time with either parent as he so choose due to his age.)
Prior to this revision, Jolie had successfully kept her kids away from her ex-husband for the most part, as she allegedly believed he was a bad influence on them.
Now, however, a judge has threatened to strip primary custody from Jolie if she does not take steps to improve the relationship between her children and their dad.
To what extent?
The stars were actually ordered be on a phone call between the kids and two psychologists in order “to explain the summer schedule,” the documents read.
Moreover, the actor will have physical custody everyone except Maddox for four hours a day from June 8 to 17 in London, where Jolie rents a residence.
Pitt must spend time with each child at least twice during the 10-day period with one of the psychologists present.
And Jolie will not be present during her estranged husband’s custodial time.
The documents goon to list other dates in June, July and August during which Pitt will have custody of the kids.
It even sounds like he will have them all to himself from July 21-29 in Los Angeles.
Family law lawyer David Glass, who is NOT associated with the case, tells People Magazine that this sort of legal intervention is unusual.
But there must have been ample evidence to show that Jolie really was doing a disservice to her children and to Pitt.
“It’s a rare case where the court will find that someone alienated the kids,” Glass explains, adding:
“It takes a lot to move the court past estrangement into alienation, but once it’s determined that one parent is alienating the kids, the court has no choice but to jump in and make pretty strong orders right away.”
This new arrangement even requires Jolie to provide Pitt with the kids’ cell phone numbers so that he may text them.
Jolie and Pitt separated in September 2016… and we remain in shock that this marriage failed to work out.
While there have been plenty of rumors regarding the relationship status since, neither Pitt nor Jolie has said much in public about their private affairs.
“This [divorce] has been a longstanding back-and-forth, and hopefully now there will be greater collaboration for the benefit of the kids,” an insider tells Us Weekly, concluding:
“The kids have always been a priority for both parents and hopefully everyone will comply with the court order going forward.
“Brad will be wherever he needs to be for the kids.”

Anthony Bourdain was never someone to shy away from voicing his opinion on pretty much anything. Bourdain once said that “Once you’ve been to Cambodia, you’ll never stop wanting to beat Henry Kissinger to death with your bare hands,” a strong statement about the war criminal who has since been embraced by both sides of the political spectrum.
Bourdain was also fairly outspoken on the subject of current President Donald Trump. With tomorrow being the start of Trump’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, you might remember the time when Bourdain was asked by a TMZ reporter what he would serve were he to cater such a summit, and he responded “hemlock”.
That’s not the only time Bourdain has commented on Trump. After the election, he told Eater he wouldn’t want to dine with Trump, who has a reputation for not exactly being a foodie.
I’m open to sitting down with anyone who’s nice to me. I’ve sat down with everyone from Ted Nugent [to] the former chief of counter-intelligence for the KGB [to] Hezbollah — you know, people who I disagree with on many, if not every fundamental issue. I just find him personally objectionable.
I don’t think he likes food, and from people I know who have had to endure dinner with him, if you enjoy sitting there listening to him talk about himself, you know, great — god bless you. And, you know, the man only eats steak well-done. And if he knows how to use chopsticks, much less [be] able to grasp them with those tiny little nubbins, I’d be shocked.
He has a point, when is the last time you saw Donald Trump eating any kind of food that wasn’t referenced in a Jim Gaffigan routine? And what kind of deviant eats steak well done? I may have political differences with Trump, but I can get past those. Eating overcooked steak, though, that’s just… disrespectful to the cow that had to die for you to ruin its meat.
In a separate interview, when Eater asked him if he voted, he gave this answer, talking about how having been in some of the same circles as Trump made him less than enthusiastic about how he’d be as President.
Yes. No fan of the Clintons am I, by a long shot. But I’m a New Yorker, Donald Trump is a New Yorker. And the New Yorkers I know, we’ve lived with this guy for 30 years. I’ve seen Donald Trump say things one day, and then I saw what he did the next. I’ve seen up close how he does business. Just like if you lived in a small town, you’d get to know the sheriff, the guy who runs the hardware store, the guy who runs the filling station — Trump comes from that era of guys you followed, guys you knew about every day: Trump, Giuliani, Al Sharpton, Curtis Sliwa. I’d see him at Studio 54, for fuck’s sake. I’m not saying I know the guy personally, not like I’d hug him, but I’m saying that as a New Yorker, we pretty much are neighbors. And my many years of living in his orbit have not left me with a favorable impression, let’s put it that way. There’s so many reasons to find the guy troubling. When Scott Baio’s the only guy you can find to show up at your convention, you’re in trouble.
Of course, Bourdain was famous for travelling to foreign places and getting to know the people there, bridging the divide in understanding between us and them. And he did exactly that in a trip to West Virginia to meet with Trump supporters, which he wrote about in April.
The stereotypes about West Virginia, it turns out, are just as cruel, ignorant, misguided, patronizing, and evil as any other. Every meal might have begun with saying grace, but there was nothing hypocritical about it. People do care about each other. Friends, family, and the community are held close. The men and women who come from families of four, five generations of coal mining are not naive about the promises of cynical politicians—or the inevitable future of fossil fuel. Their identities, their aspirations, and their situation are far more complex than one can imagine, and their needs are more immediate.
There’s a reason why so many West Virginians love their birthplace so fiercely and have fought so long and so hard to preserve it. I hope this show gives you all a glimpse.
I am intensely grateful for the kindness, hospitality, and patience the people of West Virginia showed to this ignorant rube from New York City who arrived with so many of the usual preconceptions, only to have them turned on their head.
Trump, for his part, told the White House Press Corps that Bourdain’s death was “very sad” and that Bourdain was “quite a character,” offering condolences to the families of both Bourdain and designer Kate Spade.
