JESSE JAMES IS ENGAGED TO THE HEIRESS OF THE PAUL MITCHELL FORTUNE? WELL PLAYED DOUCHE
Jesse James has somehow found a woman who’ll trust him. Hollyscoop reports that Sandra Bullock’s cheating ex is dating racer Alexis DeJoria, daughter of billionaire John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of hair care giant Paul Mitchell. According to reports, Jesse and Alexis have been dating since September, and Hollyscoop says they may even be engaged. Although neither has confirmed the news, DeJoria didn’t exactly deny it when a Twitter follower wrote, “I used to admire you now I feel sorry for you. Moving in and getting engaged to a guy you've been dating for a month." Instead she responded, “Am I supposed to wait till I'm married to sleep with a man too?! Lol! You've been brainwashed into what society says is right."

YES OR NO? MADONNA’S NAUGHTY BITS JUST ABOUT POPPED OUT OF HER LINGERIE ON STAGE
It's time once again to play YES OR NO? the game in which we give you a picture or pictures and you tell us if we're looking at something DELICIOUS or DISGUSTING. Today's subject is 54-year-old MADONNA, wearing something most 54-year-olds should NOT wear. Then again, Madonna doesn't look like most 54-year-olds, so maybe she deserves a pass. As usual, the choice is yours.
During her gig in Miami on Monday night, Madonna wore her usual, slutty lingerie. But this time, something was different. The front of the costume looked particularly inadequate around the CROTCHAL REGION. And it appeared that the audience was dangerously close to seeing her MOST HOLY OF AREAS.

It's not clear why this didn't make the news until yesterday, but on November 10th, FLAMING LIPS singer WAYNE COYNE was responsible for the shutting down of Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City. Why? Because there was a GRENADE in his carry-on luggage. It wasn't live, and Coyne said he didn't mean to pack it in his carry-on bag. Someone gave it to him at a party as a joke. But the TSA still had to shut everything down until they could determine it was harmless. Then, despite the chaos he caused, they let Coyne go. He later Tweeted, quote, "Sorry Sorry Sorry!! Everyone that was inconvenienced because of my grenade at OKC airport!!"

IF YOU’RE TRAVELING THIS THANKSGIVING, THIS IS THE IDEAL AIRLINE PASSENGER TO SIT NEXT TO!
If you’re traveling this Thanksgiving, better hope you get seated next to this guy. According to a survey of flight attendants, the ideal airline passenger is a European male thirty-something traveling alone for pleasure (not business). Interestingly, flight crews also said they prefer working in economy over first class, where passengers are perhaps less demanding and more polite. So what makes being a flight attendant suck? The most common complaints were passengers who snap their fingers to get an attendant’s attention, trying to cram too much stuff into the overhead bins and not obeying the seatbelt sign.

HOW YOU GONNA CALL THE COPS ON THE SALVATION ARMY BELL RINGER? C’MON LADY
Yesterday morning, Sarah Hamilton-Parker of Portsmouth, New Hampshire called the cops on a SALVATION ARMY BELL RINGER. Because she said he was making too much noise. Ya know, while he was out in the cold trying to raise money for charity. Sarah works at a store in downtown Portsmouth. The store is VERY lucky that the local press didn't report its name. She says, quote, "I listen to this [bell ringing] for 200 hours a year. This is my fourth year and I can't take it anymore. I'm so sick of it. I don't get a break. It makes my blood pressure go sky high. It makes me hate Christmas." The police captain says the Salvation Army gets official government permission to ring their bells downtown to collect for charity. So the bell ringers are allowed to stand where they're standing and ring their bells as much as they want. Sarah says she's thinking about putting together a petition to circulate around to the other downtown businesses to get the bell ringer kicked out.

10 NEW WORDS ARE BEING ADDED TO THE DICTIONARY THIS YEAR…
The Oxford Dictionary Online adds new words every three months and the list that they're adding in the last quarter of this year is heavy on slang terms and technical jargon. Here are 10 of the newest words in the dictionary:
#1.) 4G: It stands for "fourth generation" and is a standard for cell-phone coverage that is better than 3G.
#2.) LTE: It's an abbreviation for "Long Term Evolution"
#3.) Dance-off: A competition between two or more dancers to see which one is eliminated usually from a reality show.
#4.) Deets: An extremely annoying abbreviation of the word "details" . . . as in, quote, "How was the first date? Give me all the deets."
#5.) Boyf: According to the dictionary people, it's an abbreviation of "boyfriend".
#6.) First-world problems: This was popular on Twitter for awhile. People would list problems that are minor compared to starvation and war . . . like not being able to get cell phone reception while sitting courtside at a game.
#7.) Veepstakes: This is one of those terms invented by newspaper writers and talking heads on TV and isn't actually used in normal conversation. It's the race to be chosen as a vice-presidential candidate.
#8.) Stressy: It's the way someone acts when they're under a lot of stress as in, "She always gets stressy when she's about to break up with a guy."
#9.) Forumite: This is someone who posts a lot in an Internet forum.

SHE DON’T EAT MEAT, BUT SHE SURE LIKED THE BONE!
Two months ago, a 37-year-old woman in Gothenburg, Sweden was arrested for HAVING SEX WITH A HUMAN SKELETON. The woman would film herself having sex with the skeleton, AND using the bones as LOVE TOYS. Some of the movies featured her LICKING the skull, and had labels on them like "My necrophilia" or "My first experience." Apparently she bought the bones from someone online. The only reason the cops caught her is because someone reported hearing a gunshot from her apartment. It was a false alarm, but when they got inside they found the skeleton. The court ordered a psych evaluation . . . which found the woman TOTALLY SANE. And yesterday she was charged with violating the peace of the dead. That carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison.
THE STEELERS ARE GIVING PLAXICO BURRESS ANOTHER SHOT…GET IT?
The Pittsburgh Steelers gave their injured receiver corps a shot in the arm on Tuesday by resigning wide receiver Plaxico Burress. The 35-year, who spent his first five seasons with Pittsburgh before signing a free agent deal with the New York Giants, said, “I’m very excited to be back in the black and gold where it all started.” If Burress is to catch a pass in his first game back this Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, it will come from the arm of third string quarterback Charlie Batch, who will start in place of the injured Byron Leftwich, who started last week for the banged up Ben Roethlisberger. Leftwich won’t play on Sunday because of a fractured rib he sustained against the Ravens.

The All-Pro’s successful appeal clears the way for him to play this Sunday in San Diego against the Chargers. Reed would have lost $423,529 in pay had his suspension not been overturned.

In 2002, the Scarlet Knights finished with an embarrassing record of just 1-11, but since then, they have made six bowl appearances in the past seven years. This year they sit at 8-2 and in position to win its first Big East championship.
NBA ROUNDUP: L.A., BROOKLYN BATTLE IN HOLLYWOOD; LAKERS PREVAIL
Despite going an inexcusable 19-for-37 from the charity stripe, the Los Angeles Lakers managed to beat the Brooklyn Nets 95-90 on new L.A. coach Mike D’Antoni’s debut on the sidelines at the Staples Center. Dwight Howard made just 7 of his 19 free throw attempts but finished with 23 points and 15 big rebounds, while Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 25 and Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace scored 17 apiece.
