Kara DioGuardi Gets Naked
American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi has stripped off and posed naked for Allure magazine. The 39-year-old posed naked on her bed. In an interview with the mag, DioGuardi reveals she suffered from binge eating and depression during her early 20s. She has since stopped using food to anesthetize herself and is looking fantastic. She tells the magazine, “This shoot was less about beauty than about taking a risk and showing people a side of me they have never seen.” [Us Magazine]
Hugh Hefner Slams Jesse James
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner may have multiple girlfriends, but the man does not cheat. Nor does he take kindly to men who do. The octogenarian, who recently turned 84, told Page Six, "When you get married, you make a commitment. I had a lot of girlfriends, but it's not the same as cheating. I don't cheat. I am very open about what I do . . . Sandra Bullock's husband looks like a real creep. I think that when you are in a relationship, you should be honest. The real immorality of infidelity is the lying.” [New York Post]

It’s being reported that Amy Winehouse’s newest enhancements landed her in the hospital over the weekend. According to People, Winehouse was experiencing chest pain and discomfort in the breast implants which she got last fall. A friend said "she had them checked out and all was OK, so she didn't have to stay in…" We're surprised they weren’t filled with cigarettes. [CNN]
Ben Roethlisberger Probably Shouldn't Leave His House Anymore
Less than 24 hours after avoiding his second sexual assault charge, reports out of the Boston area claim that a highly-respected attorney was hired to investigate Ben Roethlisberger for crossing the line with a young lady in a Las Vegas night club. "Six months ago I was retained by a client of mine and close friend to investigate allegations against Ben Roethlisberger in a Las Vegas nightclub," Manion told WEEI. "My client was a graduate of college, 26-years-old, out socially with a bunch of other young women, grabbed from the line, brought up to the VIP suite. Same old story." Can we now start referring to this as the "Roethlisberger Special"? [KDKA]
Twitter Grows Up, Adds "Promoted Tweets"
Twitter is finally taking off the training wheels and moving into the world where real businesses tread with the launch on Tuesday of its first advertising model, dubbed "Promoted Tweets." The microblogging platform has long avoided coming up with a business plan or even talking about one. But apparently the heads of Twitter have decided that they should probably try to find a way to make money over the long haul. We fully expect that Twitter die-hards will be, you know, tweeting their outrage and this obvious "sell out" move. If only all their followers weren't porn site bots. [PC World]
Adobe Prepping Lawsuit Against Apple?
This whole Apple/Adobe spat is about to get a lot uglier, according to IT World. Their sources say Adobe is prepping for a major lawsuit against Apple in the coming weeks. The updated SDK that was released with the iPhone 4.0 dev kit seems to be the last straw, with its new rules banning apps converted from Flash into iPhone-friendly software formats. Many people believe that Apple's aversion to Flash support is making their products less useful, with devices like the new iPad simply not displaying any Flash content from sites or Hulu and other video content providers.
