A Little of the Old In and Out

In: Gisele's Kiss Trauma. Ananova (link via Hello!Magazine) notes, with hottness:

"Gisele Bundchen says she was left 'traumatised' by the lesbian kiss she shared in her debut movie."

The Corsair sipping an alluring aged champagne, perks up, fascinated ...

"The stunning model, who stars as a sexy thief in upcoming film Taxi, was shocked when she learned she would have to kiss her female co-star, Jennifer Esposito."

The Corsair, now thoroughly intrigued, smiles wanly ...

"She said: When I found out, I thought, 'You've got to be kidding me.' "

The Corsair is discouraged ... The Corsair is confused ...

"When it came to the scene I was really nervous. I said to Jennifer, 'I'm sorry, I'm going to have to do this.' So I did it, and it was kind of embarrassing. I was thinking, 'What are my mom and dad going to say when they see this?'

"'It was traumatising in the beginning, but then I got used to it.'"

Ahhh The Corsair's is appeased ... his eyes twinkle like dark gems ...

"She added: 'Everybody was behind us cheering while we were doing the scene, so it made it easier for me.

"'Not that I'm going to do that again on any girl, but it was funny in the end.'"

The Corsair drains the glass ...

Out: Terrestrial Radio. As Radio and Records writes:

"The WXRK/New York-based syndicated morning host's live on-air announcement yesterday morning that he has agreed to a five-year contract with the satcaster, set to commence in January 2006, will certainly leave its mark on radio.

"For (Howard) Stern, it heralds a new era for broadcasting. 'This marks the death of AM and FM radio, I guarantee it,' he told reporters yesterday. 'I put my money where my mouth is. I have one of the largest radio shows in the world. Whenever I go on my radio show, if I have to sell a book, sell a movie, do anything like that, I could instantly go on and reach millions of people. I'm walking away from that, and the reason I'm walking away from that is I believe the future is with satellite radio.'

"Meanwhile, Infinity and parent Viacom remained relatively mum on the loss of their superstar, saying in a prepared statement, 'We at Infinity have enjoyed our years with Howard. We wish him well in his new foray into the world of pay subscription radio, beginning in 2006.'"

In: The Michael Alig Prison Interview. continues the ninth installment of their addictive crack-like Michael Alig-James St. James prison interview. It's grim, folks; no two ways about it, prison is indeed a moist Oz-like scenario suffused with a little bit of the ole ultraviolence delivered with deadpan irony:

"Michael Alig: Oh, James, do you know that a couple of days ago I was on the phone, like I�m talking to you right now, and two phones down from me was a guy talking on the phone and someone just walked right up to him and X�ed him on both cheeks with a razor blade. Like X�es, you know? Blood squirting and everything.

"James St James: Who were you talking to?

"Michael: Sarah. And I�m the only person that even reacted at all. Everyone else that was walking around either ignored it or just, you know, didn�t care. I found out later that the guy who did the cutting � and this is what�s really scary � the guy who did the cutting was a wannabe Blood, and in order to become a Blood you have to go out and cut somebody at random. You have to cut somebody who has nothing to do with anybody, who hasn�t caused any trouble.

"James: So it could just as easily have been you?

"Michael: It could just as easily have been me, or any old lady in the street.

"James: Except there are no old ladies, or streets, in prison, Michael.

"Michael: You know what I mean. They just have to go out and cut somebody, and it has to be specifically somebody they don�t have any beef with. They want you to prove your ruthlessness.
"James: So you came within a hair�s breadth of disfigurement YET AGAIN.

"Michael: Isn�t that the scariest thing? You know, I just keep my eyes open now, and if I see anybody coming near me that I don�t know, I run.

"James: Well that�s just something you should do in prison anyway, right?

Michael: Well, who knew it was that bad?

"James: (Laughs) Did you just say, Who knew prison was that bad?

The Corsair contemplates Michael Alig breaking into a brisk sprint as two wannabe Bloods follow in hot pursuit and furious anger in their eyes.

More prison chatter here.

Out: Kimberly Stewart's Old Implants. This story, which The Corsair places in the "Ask and ye shall receive" bin, is almost as gross as the Rebecca Loos -- such a meaningful name -- one, from GQ UK, via the Daily Star:

"JACK MOUNTS BREASTS: When Kimberly Stewart had her old breast implants removed, she presented them to close friend Jack Osbourne, who now has them up on his wall. 'He asked for them and I gave them to him,' she said."

In: Underwear. Are underwear having the best week ever? (The Corsair has always wanted to say that) First, Britney's underwear was on eBay (not anymore). Now, Michael Moore is being called to task in PantyGate as the Michaigan state GOP is requesting charges filed against Moore:

"Filmmaker Michael Moore responded Wednesday to the Michigan Republican Party's request that he be prosecuted for offering underwear and food to college students in exchange for their promise to vote.

"'It's ironic that Republicans have no problem with allowing assault weapons out on our streets, yet they don't want to put clean underwear in the hands of our slacker youth,' Moore said in a statement."

The Corsair wonders whether he wears boxers or briefs?

Comment here or on VH1's BWE Blog.

Out: Johnny Cochran. According to that significant cultural artifact, The National Enquirer:

"Famed O.J. Simpson attorney Johnnie Cochran was barely alive when paramedics rushed him to the hospital after he passed out while receiving chemotherapy treatment, sources say.

"The gutsy defense attorney had pulled off another of his famous victories several months ago when he survived delicate surgery to have a golf ball-size tumor removed from his brain, as The ENQUIRER previously revealed. "

If the tumor doesn't fit ... (The Corsair couldn't help it)

RE: Giselle's kiss: ACTING! IT'S ACTING.
That's what you tell your mother and father.
In the name of Art, please!
