Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oily Legs

Gwyneth Paltrow appeared on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and all anyone is talking about is her ridiculously greasy legs. It seems Ms. Paltrow was attacked by a bottle of lotion before she sat on the couch next to Conan. Naturally her oily legs were to the talk of Twitter, with someone twittering: “Gwyneth doesn’t eat animal fat. She wears it on her legs for late-night talk show appearances.” Someone on the show obviously noticed her shiny legs and wiped them down during the break. [Gawker]

Megan Fox Sizzles for UK GQ

Megan Fox’s hotness has crossed the pond. The Transformers babe appears on the cover of the UK’s GQ. The headline on the issue screams, “Megan Fox will not be censored.” The super sexy shots show Megan in an array of bikinis. In the accompanying article she’s quoted as saying, "My only job is to get up, take a shower, do my hair, and look attractive." Job well done!! [GQ Magazine]

Blade Runner Web Series??

Fans of Blade Runner have been heard, apparently, as Ridley Scott, director of Blade Runner, his brother Tony and his son Luke are teaming up to develop a web series in the world of the film. The 5 to 10 minute webisodes will take place in the period before the film’s events, which were set in 2019. It’s possible the series could eventually wind up on television. The issue is whether or not this is going to please diehard fans or incense them, and it could go either way. For one thing, it’s hard to imagine the Blade Runner world without Harrison Ford. For another, franchises that get restarted – regardless of the medium they’re made for – don’t usually do well after a twenty-plus year hiatus. Here’s hoping this turns out to be awesome, there’s lots of potential for this project to be good. [NY Times]

GWAR leader Oderus Urung is set to follow in Mickey Rourke's footsteps by getting into the ring with a professional wrestler. Urungus has been lined up to scrap Tracy Smothers at the end of June 9th in West Virginia. In a statement to rock news website, the rocker stated: "I have no idea how I got roped into this one. I guess someone is making money off it. I will be there with bells on, and this Tracy Smothers so-and-so is going to find out just what it's like to go toe-to-toe with an intergalactic god! I just hope he shaves his armpits first." The fight will take place at the Schoenbaum Amphitheater in Charleston, WV on 24 June 9th. [Contact Music]

Amy Winehouse: “I Want Black Kids”

A British journalist was recently lucky enough to spend some time with Amy Winehouse in St. Lucia and the starlet gave up some choice quotes in between her morning round of tequila shots. Winehouse, who was covered in what appeared to be self-inflicted cuts and burns, began drinking at 9am. “It feels like home here,” Amy says of the island resort she calls home. Amy was coherent enough to insist that she and her husband “still in love.” But, she added, “I couldn’t have given him kids – and anyway I want black kids, not white kids.” Ok. [Bossip]

NYC Cops Repeatedly Ticket Parked Dead Guy

George Morales probably died in his minivan of a heart attack in early May, parked under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway underpass. That didn't stop NYC cops from writing him parking tickets for the next couple of weeks. According to Jennifer Morales, her father had been incomunicado since the beginning of May. She'd even reported his disappearance to the NYPD, but it wasn't until recently he was discovered dead in his minivan. A city marshal discovered George in his Chevy Venture as he was attempting to tow the car away due to the load of tickets which had been issued for repeated parking violations. You stay classy, New York. [WCBSTV]

Score a Free Doughnut Today

June 5th, the first Friday in June, is National Doughnut Day. Participating doughnut shops across the country are giving away free doughnuts to mark the occasion. Krispy Kreme is giving away a free doughnut, no strings attached. Dunkin' Donuts is offering a free doughnut with the purchase of a beverage, which isn't such an awful proposition given how well loved their coffee is. Somewhere, Homer Simpson is doing a happy dance. [Newsday]
