Ashton Kutcher Accused of Cheating, Again
Another woman has stepped forward to claim she's had an affair with Ashton Kutcher. Brittney Snow, a 21-year-old brunette, sold her story to tabloid magazine Star. Her photograph is splashed across the cover of the latest issue with the headline “Ashton Cheats Again – with this girl.” The two apparently met bowling and Snow slipped him her number. They soon met up for sex, including a saucy romp in Kutcher’s home while his wife Demi Moore was out of town. Snow tells the magazine, “He's a great lover. Very considerate and sweet. And it was very special to me. I felt totally comfortable in his arms. It was tender and nice--not some random sex act.” Last week the magazine printed a similar allegation about the actor. Kutcher has again denied cheating on his wife. His lawyers released a statement saying, “Star Magazine continuously publishes lies about Ashton Kutcher and many other celebrities. This is not the first, nor will it be the last time they engage in reckless conduct.” [Star]
Cellphone Maker Nokia Fights Back
Nokia has unveiled a new range of smartphones in an effort to take on industry leaders Apple and Blackberry. The Finnish company was once a dominant force in cellphone technology but has lost ground in the smartphone market in recent years. The company unveiled three new smartphones—the E7, C7, and the C6—at a launch event in London. Niklas Savander, Nokia's markets chief said, "Today our fight back to smartphone leadership shifts into high gear.” All the phones are powered by a new Symbian 3 operating system. The E7 is described as “the ultimate business smartphone” and contains a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, while the C7 is the "social-networking smartphone" and comes with a 3.5-inch screen. Reactions to the phones are mixed and range from “wow” to “weird.” [CNN]

Jennifer Lopez has supposedly sealed a one-year deal for around $12 million to become a judge on American Idol next season. The deal apparently allows Lopez to be at the auditions of the new season, which starts next week. Even though Fox declined to confirm this, People reported yesterday that Lopez had finalized a deal after a previous attempt failed a month ago. TMZ also stated that her deal was worth "a little more than $12 million." This is seriously unbelievable. [People]
Toy Stores are a Poor Place to Pleasure Yourself
A local man was caught enjoying himself a little too much at a local toy store while looking at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Police claim the assumed ladies man grabbed the magazine, took it to the toy aisle at a local Wal-Mart, and began "appreciating" the photos with various people around. Truly, a ringing endorsement for Sports Illustrated! [The Smoking Gun]
Ray Lewis' Son is Really Good at Football
The offspring of Baltimore Ravens' star linebacker Ray Lewis had one hell of a game at his local high school. The two-way star had 206 total yards and two touchdowns on punt returns, 101 total yards on kickoff returns, 104 yards rushing, 27 yards receiving, 66 yards passing, and a perfect 6-for-6 performance through the air. Some are saying it's the greatest performance by the son of an accused murderer who won the Super Bowl ever! [Yahoo!]
