Snooki Refuses to Wear Bikinis
Don’t expect to see pint-sized reality TV star Snooki in a bikini on season two of Jersey Shore as she refuses to wear one. The 23-year-old instead went for a traditional one piece because she thought it was sexier. She tells People magazine, “I would rather wear a sexy one-piece whether I am heavy or down to 90 pounds. I wore one-piece suits when I was really skinny to hide my nakedness in a sexy way. I think they are more provocative.” Snooki currently hopes to shed a few pounds and is the new spokesperson for Dr. Seigal's Cookie Diet. [People]
Another Supposed Michael Jackson Love Child Emerges
A woman claiming to be Michael Jackson illegitimate love child has filed papers with the L.A. County Superior Court requesting a DNA test to prove she is related to the late pop idol and thus entitled to part of Jackson’s multi-million dollar will. Mocienne Petit Jackson, currently residing in the Netherlands, claims a 17-year-old Jackson impregnated her mother in 1975. In a bizarre twist, Mocienne claims her mother is Diana Ross’ sister Barbarba. Mocienne says Jackson’s mother had her abducted and shipped to Beligium at age nine to protect Michael’s image. Later, according to Mocienne, her all seven of abductors were murdered. Hmmm, I don’t like her chances in court!! [TMZ]

DMX surrendered to a judge yesterday to begin serving a 90-day jail sentence for a 2002 reckless driving conviction in Los Angeles. City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said that DMX turned himself in at a downtown courthouse and a judge ruled that DMX cannot be freed on electronic monitoring, work release or home detention. DMX was originally charged with drunken driving, but those charges were later dismissed. This guy just can’t get a break. [TMZ]

Diego Maradona has been given the pink slip as Argentina's national head coach, after refusing to make adjustments to his coaching staff. The controversial coach will no longer be in charge of the promising squad, and will now have more time to focus on evading capture from the Italian government and "not running people over with his car" anymore.

Terrell Owens is no Longer a One Man Wolfpack
After a tumultuous offseason, troubled wide receiver (and Spike television personality) Terrell Owens has found a new home. According to reports "the Bengals have agreed to terms with Terrell Owens. It's likely to be announced as a one-year deal at around $2-3 million." The move will pair up Owens with Chad Ochocinco, creating the league's first ever "dating show rivalry" at the receiver position. [NBC Sports]
