Now Tila is Very Sad
Tila Tequila has been riding a rollercoaster of emotions since the death of her fiancé Casey Johnson. Yesterday she put on a show for the paparazzi, dancing and posing for pics in a see-through shirt. She was her typical attention-seeking self. Today, Tila has changed tact, but seeking attention all the same. Enter sad Tila. Cue the tears! Ms. Tequila took to Twitter, posting a photograph of herself crying and tweeting, “My bed is so empty without her now. I cant live here alone anymore! Losing my mind...” Cry me a river for heaven’s sake! When will her phony shenanigans stop! [WWTDD]
Amanda Bynes Gets Sexy
Amanda Bynes is all grown up and showing her sexy side. The former Nickelodeon starlet has posed for lad mag Maxim. The 23-year-old tells the magazine, “Some people still see me as a kid, but I'm a 23-year-old woman now.” Bynes has definitely blossomed into a sexy woman, posing in a series of hot lingerie shots. Get set to see more of the naughty side of Amanda. She tells the magazine she’s going to start to take sexier roles, “if they're done the right way,” which means you could see Bynes getting freaky very soon! [Maxim]

Bill Paxton Has the Best Idea He’s Ever Had
And that idea is: to make a Twister sequel. It’s true, there’s not exactly rioting in the streets for a sequel to this movie, but that’s not to say he’s not on to something here. Paxton explains, “The only reason I’d like to revisit that ground is because I realize we’re living in a time where big movies cost so much to make that the town is looking for built-in audiences… Of course, I’m so glad to see that the success of Avatar is disproving that theory, but…I always thought the first Twister was an exciting ride, but I thought a sequel could explore it in a more enthralling way, getting into more of the history and the lore, more of a darker version of the first one.” We’ll have to think this over. It’s either a bad idea, or a really bad idea, hard to say at this point. [Premium Hollywood]

The band that made the classic song “Rock and Roll All Nite” has officially come out against that very lifestyle that made them famous in the first place. Kiss has said that sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll are for ''losers'' because they broke up their original lineup. Gene Simmons stated: "Even the phrase 'sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll' what a losers phrase that is! Why isn't it just sex and rock 'n' roll? How did drugs become cool?” I’m gonna go throw up now.

Manny Pacquiao to Fight Someone Not Named Floyd Mayweather
Earlier today, in an apparent effort to destroy the hopes and dreams of boxing fans everywhere, Manny Pacquiao signed up to fight Joshua Clottey in March of 2010. The bout means that the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather tilt is unlikely to happen before 2011, which should give the boxing community plenty of time to point fingers and start moving over to the UFC world.

Modern Warfare 2 Developers Working on an MMO?
Rumors are floating around the 'tubes that Infinity Ward is planning a subscription-based MMO. This time around, Destructoid cites the wise council of anonymous "industry sources" that reportedly suggests that Infinity Ward is hiring developers from Sony Online Entertainment (and borrowing a few human resources from Blizzard) to work on the new project. Now, if these reports are accurate, there's no earthly way of knowing for certain if the project is an MMO, or whether or not it will even be based on the Call of Duty franchise. Then again, considering there's like 7 million people playing MW2 online, they kind of already have one. [Destructoid]
Swiss Ferrari Owner Gets Record $290,000 Speeding Ticket
Switzerland doesn't mess around when it comes to speeding tickets. Get caught with a lead foot in the land of Alpine vistas and serious chocolate and the cost of your transgression won't be based on a flat rate for the infraction, it will be based on how wealthy you are. An unnamed driver of a Ferrari Testarossa found this out the hard way when he was caught driving 85 miles per hour through the village of St. Gallen. According to the BBC News, the driver was a repeat offender and his crime was going 35 mph over the speeding limit. [BBC]
