More Naughty Kendra Sex Tape News

Kendra Wilkinson might be trying to have her sex tape barred from being released, but that hasn’t stopped adult film company Vivid Entertainment from pushing ahead with publicizing it. Today they released 15 more stills from the yet-to-be-seen tape and these are the most explicit yet. The stills show the reality star engaged in sexual activity. Steven Hirsch, the founder/co-chairman of Vivid, released a statement saying, “We were stunned by the overwhelming response from her fans after we released our first photos of Kendra last week. And they made it very clear that they wanted to see even more revealing shots from her movie, so we made a special selection of additional photos that we are posting today.” The tape is scheduled to go on sale June 2nd.

Lindsay Dodges Court Again

Lindsay Lohan really hates going to court. The troubled actress is due in front a judge in Los Angeles tomorrow in relation to a DUI charge she received awhile back. The 23-year-old says she’s “stuck” in France. The Mean Girls star is attending the Cannes Film Festival (presumably for the free drinks) but claims her passport was stolen and she's unable to leave the country. Her lawyer released a statement saying, "Lindsay is distraught because it was her intention to get back to (Los Angeles) today to do more alcohol education classes and appear in court tomorrow.” Her father Michael calls this “just another lie” and there are reports that Lohan has lined up club appearance in France for the rest of the week. I suppose a girl’s got to earn a living and you can’t let a little thing like the law get in the way. [NY Daily News]

In her fourth hospital visit in six months, Amy Winehouse was taken to a rehab clinic over the weekend after a serious booze binge. A source stated: "She's there because she had a load to drink and was really unwell afterwards. Not just sick, really poorly.” Mama needs to start sippin’ a little water from time to time. Just a thought. [SFC]

The Orlando Magic See What This Whole Taser Craze is All About

It's no secret that tasing fans has become a popular trend in professional sports these days. So, in a presumed effort to jump on the electric violence bandwagon, Orlando Magic security guards recently tried out their Tasers on a man who was causing a disturbance in the crowd. The elderly fan, who lost control of his body for several minutes and happened to be the father of a Boston Celtics player, could not have been more understanding when he told the guards to go screw themselves and then spent several hours after the game resisting arrest for causing a public disturbance.

UC Berkeley Asking Incoming Students For DNA

Students starting at Cal will now start receiving a special addition to their welcome package: they will be asked to voluntarily submit a DNA sample. The cotton swabs will come with two bar code labels. One label will be put on the DNA sample and the other is kept for the students' own records. The confidential process is being overseen by Jasper Rine, a campus professor of Genetics and Development Biology, who says the test results will help students make decisions about their diet and lifestyle.

Marine Mammals Used to Fight Terrorism

The Navy unveiled its terror-fighting marine mammals at a two-day homeland security and disaster preparedness exercise in California this week. From the article: "A Navy seal — actually a sea lion — took less than a minute to find a fake mine under a pier near San Francisco's AT&T Park. A dolphin quickly located a terrorist lurking in the black water before another sea lion, using a device carried in its mouth, cuffed the pretend saboteur's ankle so authorities could reel him in." Queue the "frickin lasers" jokes! [Stuff]
