Get Set for the Mindy McCready Sex Tape

Country music singer Mindy McCready has a sex tape. The chart topper, who has had a string of high profile relationships with sports stars, is seen getting it on with an ex-boyfriend named “Peter.” According to Vivid Entertainment, which is releasing the skin flick, the video shows McCready and her ex engaged in explicit sex that’s definitely XXX. The video is also “interspersed with graphic details of several raunchy romps with a slew of stars,” including Roger Clemens. McCready discusses her affair with the baseballer that allegedly lasted 14 years and began when McCready was 15-years-old. The adult film, which is titled Baseball Mistress, goes on sale mid April.

Wilson Brothers Sued Over Attack

Owen and Andrew Wilson are co-defendants in an assault case with a paparazzo who is suing them over an alleged fight in Santa Monica on December 5th, 2008.

Brewer is claiming in the lawsuit that he "was walking up the stairs and was pushed in the back by" Owen Wilson. Brewer claims he has suffered medical expenses in the amount of $3,251.10 and general damages in the amount of $500,000. [Perez Hilton]

Bono is Worst Investor in America

U2 frontman Bono has been named the Worst Investor in America by the financial journal 24/7 Wall Street for his backing of troubled smart telephone maker Palm Inc. Bono and bosses at his private-equity business Elevation Partners dumped nearly $500 million into the debt-riddled firm Treo and Centro back in December 2008. The gamble seriously cost him and the downturn in the global economy has caused stock shares in Palm Inc. to plummet 35 per cent from January 10th to February 10th. Good work, Bono! [The Fox Nation]

15 WTFortune Cookies

Even aside from adding " bed" to the end of every sentence, the post-meal delights of fortune cookies are surprisingly funny sometimes. Or if not funny, then just plain weird. CollegeHumor has gathered up some of their favorites so pop on over there to take a look. [CollegeHumor]

Ricky Martin has officially come of the closet. The 38-year-old singer who is most famous for his song "Livin’ la Vida Loca" made the announcement on his website. In both English and Spanish Martin wrote, “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am." At the height of his career there was much speculation over the singer’s sexuality. Martin never confirmed or fully denied he was gay and often became awkward when asked. Reaction to Martin’s outing has been universal: it has surprised no one. [Huffington Post]

We're all used to seeing endless photo galleries of celebrities, but here's a new one...our pals at Manofest have put together a sizable smattering of celebrity "o-face" pictures.

The Mayor of New York Talks Foreign Policy with the Cast of Jersey Shore

The Big Apple took a bite out of reality television over the weekend when Mayor Michael Bloomberg took some time to talk crime, education, and self-tanning tips with Snooki and "The Situation" at some sort of politician-unemployable weirdo mixer. No word was given as to whether or not Bloomberg would appear in the upcoming season of the popular reality show, but if he's willing to be seen next to Snooki in public, it's safe to assume that doing Jello shots off of J-Woww's comically fake breasts isn't a completely insane notion.

Al Davis Shocks Football World With Uncharacteristically Smart Trade Proposal for Donovan McNabb

According to people at ESPN with sources and limited social lives, the Oakland Raiders are currently the leading candidate to land Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb. The trade would allow McNabb to compete with JaMarcus Russell for the starting job (which is sort of like arm wrestling a small child for a chance to go to a minimum security prison), and become the heir apparent to a long line of washed up Pro Bowlers who fade away in the Oakland sunset (looking at you, Warren Sapp).
