And the Fattest State Is…

The fattest state in the USA is, drum roll please, Mississippi. The state topped the annual F as in Fat report published by the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Mississippi has a worrying adult obesity rate of 34.4 percent. The national report card on the nation’s belt size is not a pretty picture. While the increase in obesity is slowing, it’s still up across the country. There are now 12 states which have adult obesity rates above 30 percent. Four years ago there was just one state with such a rate. The state with the lowest rate of adult obesity is Colorado, with 19.8 percent of the population classified as obese. This is the only state to record an adult obesity rate below 20. Jeff Levi, executive director of the Trust for America's Health, said, “Today, the state with the lowest adult obesity rate would have had the highest rate in 1995.” Come on America, it’s time to hit the treadmill.
New Report Claims Lady Gaga is Extremely Ill
In a scandalous new interview with the always respectable Star Magazine, “investigative journalist” Ian Halperin claims that pop star Lady Gaga is as sick as they come and taking a turn for the worse. "Those who have worked with her on tour reported to me that Gaga barely ate for weeks at a time to fit into her costume," said Halperin. The author apparently has spent the last 12 months investigating Lady G for new tell-all book and in regards to her confirmation that she tested "borderline positive" for lupus on Larry King a while back, Halperin also said Gaga is covering up even more than fans know. "Her lupus is far worse than she lets on," he said. "Part of the reason she wears wigs and makeup is because her hair is falling out and she's covered in red blotches, both side effects of the disease." Wow. People will do anything to make a buck these days.
La Toya Jackson Says Ex-Husband Tried to Charge Mike Tyson to Sleep with Her

In what seems to be another cheap attempt to get some more attention, La Toya Jackson recently came out and publicly stated that her ex-husband, Jack Gordon, once offered to let Mike Tyson to get the pop figure in the sack for a cool $100,000. Appearing on CBS's The Talk, Jackson said, "Mike Tyson later told my mother and father and some other friends that he (Gordon) had told him that if he wanted to sleep with me he has to pay $100,000." And as if it couldn’t get any weirder, MJ’s sister even alleged that her ex also forced her to participate in random group sex. She stated: "I was in brothels and everything... (It was) everything I was against. He made me do Playboy twice and had me sit on the stage and say 'Oh no, it was all my idea'. And I had to do that because I knew what he said he would do, he would do it." For those that even care, Gordon passed away in 2005. Things just keep getting stranger in the Jackson saga.
Ryan Phillippe May Be a Dad Again
Ryan Phillippe’s ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp has given birth to a baby girl. The 36-year-old actor was by Knapp’s side even though he isn’t one hundred percent certain he’s actually the father. The couple officially broke up in September 2010 (you do the math). According to reports, Knapp delivered a healthy baby named Kai on Friday and both mother and child are “doing great.” When Knapp’s pregnancy was made public in March sources close to Phillippe said, “Ryan is aware of the situation [and] totally prepared to take responsibility should the child be his.” It is unknown whether or not Phillippe will demand a paternity test. He’s certainly acting like he’s the baby’s daddy.
