Sofia Vergara Hated Her Breasts

Sofia Vergara is famous for her magnificent chest, but the Modern Family actress was not always comfortable with her bust size. In an interview with Self magazine the 38-year-old actress says as a youngster she demanded to have her breasts surgically reduced. She says, “I told my mom, 'As soon as I'm older, please take these boobs away.' She said, 'Sofia, shut up. When you're 18, it will be different.' I was like, 'Why would I want these huge tits?' I'm a 34 DD. It's hard to dress. No matter what I wear, I look like a stripper.” Vergara has since come to terms with her large bust, saying, “I'm grateful I have them, and honestly, they've helped me a lot in my career and I've always felt sexy.” Thank goodness her mother talked her out of it.

Montana Fishburne Enters Rehab

Laurence Fishburne’s daughter Montana has checked herself into rehab. According to TMZ, Montana will spend 30 days in a facility that “specializes in anger management, behavioral problems, and mental illnesses.” The 19-year-old made headlines last month when she announced she was turning to adult entertainment to become famous. Laurence Fishburne never commented on his daughter’s career choice, but was said to be “very hurt” by her actions. Montana, who is also known as Chippy D, has had several run-ins with the law recently. She has been arrested for prostitution (the charges were later dropped) and is currently awaiting trial for allegedly beating up the ex-girlfriend of her current boyfriend. [TMZ]

Lady Gaga Explains Her Meat Dress

Lady Gaga's now-classic meat dress that she wore at the VMAs last evening made quite a splash with fans, but she apparently wanted to clear the air before PETA went completely apes***. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres immediately following the award show, Gaga explained that the meat dress was tied to her protest against the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. "It's certainly no disrespect to anyone that's vegan or vegetarian," Gaga told DeGeneres. "As you know, I'm the most judgment-free human being on the Earth. It has many interpretations, but for me this evening it's [saying], 'If we don't stand up for what we believe in, if we don't fight for our rights, pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones.” Wow. That’s deep. [Grist]

Are you Ready for Some (Weeknight) Football?

Monday Night Football kicks off their 437th year of early week NFL coverage tonight with a double header featuring three excellent teams and the Kansas City Chiefs. In the early game (7:00 pm ET) the Baltimore Ravens will take on the New York Jets in a potential AFC Championship Preview. In the later game (around 10 pm ET) the Chiefs will take on (and subsequently lose to) the San Diego Chargers. Should be a great set of games and the first of 17 opportunities to ignore your wife on a Monday evening. [ESPN]

Jay Mariotti Will Straight Up Steal Your Purse

Several weeks ago, ESPN personality and ironic moral compass Jay Mariotti was arrested for a small spat with his girlfriend that resulted in some jail time. Today, reports about the charges and the fact that he stole his girlfriend's purse in a fit of rage surfaced. According to the Los Angeles Times "charges include two counts of domestic violence with injury, two counts of domestic violence, one count of grand theft, one count of false imprisonment, and one count of vandalism. Each of the counts carries a maximum of a year in jail, meaning he could face up to seven years behind bars." Will "Around the Horn" broadcast from prison? [LA Times]
