Bar Refaeli replaces Gisele Bündchen, Liam Gallagher gets assaulted by fans, and new photos from Iron Man hit the web...a Mantenna a day keeps the doctor away!


Bar Refaeli Replaces Gisele Bündchen...Again

When it comes to modeling careers, Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli seems to be following the playbook of Gisele Bündchen. Like Gisele, Bar has dated Leonardo DiCaprio, become a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue. Now Bar is taking over from Gisele as the new face of fashion brand Rampage. Bar says, “The Rampage line is comfortable and the cuts are very feminine. It always fits perfectly to the curves of a woman's body -- I have curves and I feel really good in it!" She looks really good in them as well. [Hollyscoop]

Nun Sues Ex Over Naked Facebook Photos

An Italian woman who hopes to become a nun is suing her ex-boyfriend after he posted naked photos of her on social networking site Facebook. The man says he posted the racy pics to stop the 31-year-old woman from entering the sisterhood and refuses to take them down. The brouhaha has captured the attention of the Italians, with many accessing the naughty photographs. One guy left a comment, “If all the nuns are like that, I want to become a priest.” [Just a Guy Thing]

New Iron Man Photos Hit the Web

New photos from Iron Man 2 and District 9 have surfaced, giving us another glimpse at Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, and Sharlto Copley with a big, dangerous-looking alien gun/saw. Who knows what Iron Man 2 is going to look like when it’s all said and done, but if the photos that keep leaking every day are any indication we have a lot to look forward to. The first person who can guess what machine Tony Stark is controlling in this new photo wins a firm handshake and a slap on the back. [USA Today]

Freddy’s Back

The first photo of Jackie Earle Haley as the new Freddy Krueger is here. He’s back in all his gloved glory and ready to tear children apart in their nightmares. The film is going to be released in 2010, so until then we’ll have to content ourselves with these creepy images. It’s looking like Haley was the right choice for Freddy, and after his standout performance as Rorschach in Watchmen we’ll be looking for all kinds of awesome performances from him. [Atomic Popcorn]

Oasis’ Liam Gallagher Storms Off Stage

Liam Gallagher stormed off stage at a gig in London last night after fans started throwing beer at him, leaving his brother Noel to cover for him on vocals. The band was performing at the Roundhouse venue in North London when a group of audience members began hurling drinks at Liam. The singer responded with a barrage of classy language, blaming "students" in "stupid pointy shoes" for the disturbance. He then turned and left the stage, announcing, "I hope you feel as uncomfortable as I feel." His brother Noel saw the funny side telling the audience at the venue in Camden, "I think someone's in a bad mood," and apologizing for his sibling's temper tantrum. [Contact Music]
Rapper Yung Berg Accused of Assaulting Woman
Chelsea Berry is claiming she was at Yung Berg's house in Woodland Hills, California last Wednesday when the rapper threw her in a swimming pool and later hit her several times, giving her a black eye. She told, "He striked (sic) me with the palm of his hand, like about three times. On my head, on my eye, and I was falling back like, 'What did I do? What did I do?' And that's when he told me to leave. Then (his friend) Sincere was like, 'Calm down, I'll give her a ride.'" Ooooooh, drama! [Starpulse]
Gamer Sues Sony for PSN Banning
A San Jose gamer banned for his behavior in playing Resistance wants $55,000 from Sony and a judge to tell their moderators to stop banning people. Erik Estavillo alleges that Sony Computer Entertainment's comprehensive ban of him from the PlayStation Network constitutes theft, in the form of deprived access to prepaid PSN currency, and pain and suffering from Estavillo's agoraphobia, which is fear of crowds and/or open spaces -- so this is, he says, his only safe way to interact with others. Can't wait to hear the audio evidence on this one. [GamePolitics]
NFL Player Boycotting Madden Video Game Due to His "Inaccurate" Player Rating
The Seattle Seahawks' T.J. Houshmadzadeh, upset he's only rated the sixth-best receiver in his conference in the upcoming Madden 10, has vowed not to play the game again. "I understand I averaged 10 yards a catch, but it's the offense, not me. I'm not playing Madden no more until they get my rating right. ... I used to be the best in the world at Madden. I'm going to miss not playing it, but until they do me right, I' not playing it any more." We're, ummm... totally going to miss you not playing it too, Houslmadzadeh! [Yahoo! Sports]
