Kirstie Alley’s Marathon Sex Sessions

Kirstie Alley shocked fans with a tale of epic sex sessions when she stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday. Alley was talking about a “rough patch” she experienced 10 years ago and how she used to date “shallow men.” Then she made a big revelation. She told Ellen, “In the best of times you have two hours of sex a day," Alley said, "so you have 22 hours left to…” Alley later took to Twitter after the show to clarify her point, tweeting, “My POINT on Ellen was: even IF u had sex 2 hours a day, it still Left u with 22 hours to b with him. So HIM better B amazing!!” Seems like sage advice. [New York Daily News]

Days after dishing out controversial Tweets about the death of Osama bin Laden, Pittsburgh Steeler Rashard Mendenhall has been dropped from his endorsement contract with Champion. "We'll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style," Mendenhall Tweeted just after hearing the news of Osama bin Laden’s death. After dropping him, Champion released a statement: "… Earlier this week, Rashard Mendenhall, who endorses Champion products, expressed personal comments and opinions regarding Osama bin Laden and the September 11 terrorist attacks that were inconsistent with the values of the Champion brand and with which we strongly disagreed. In light of these comments, Champion was obliged to conduct a business assessment to determine whether Mr. Mendenhall could continue to effectively communicate on behalf of and represent Champion with consumers.” The Internet ain’t nothin’ but trouble, y’all.

Jerry Seinfeld Launches Website

Jerry Seinfeld launched a new website today that will showcase the comedian’s past and present work. The new site is not a complete archive of Seinfeld’s stand-up routines. Rather, the funnyman will release just three new clips a day which will stay online for only 24 hours. Today’s clips include: “The Fattest Man in the World” from The Tonight Show in 1981, “Do the Horses Know They’re Racing?” from a 1988 HBO special, and “No Room in the Newspaper” from The Tonight Show in 1990. Seinfeld hopes the website will inspire young comedians, just like he was inspired by watching comedians on television when he was 10 years old. He wrote, “Somewhere out there are 10 year olds just waiting to get hooked on this strange pursuit. This is for them. I'm just hoping somehow it will keep this silliness going.” []
