NO. NO. NO. Every good-time gal knows it’s going to be a bad day when your dealer doesn’t pick up. This series of images featuring Amy Winehouse sitting on a stoop near her London pad this morning–having the world’s most dramatic reaction to someone not picking up the phone–just echoes the film Requiem for a Dream. Geez, I hope she doesn’t end up like Jennifer Connelly did.

Dallas police arrested a woman who tried to hold-up a convenience store by intimidating a store clerk with her dancing.
Video surveillance allegedly shows Theresa Hutchinson–and her male partner who remains at large– barreling in a 7-Eleven store, reports Fox News 4. The man jumps over the counter and begins stuffing a bag with cigarettes while Hutchinson allegedly begins dancing on the tabletop to distract the clerk. Her oddball behavior was thought to be influenced by drugs, according to the source.
Police say the clerk was frightened at first, but when he realized they didn’t have any weapons, he grabbed a stick to defend himself. That’s when the woman jumped off the counter and tried to back him away from her partner by dancing again. But both men begin arguing and a struggle ensued. Hutchinson then grabs a checkout scanner and tries to strike the clerk, but he over powered her partner and wrangled away the bag filled with cigarettes. The suspects fled.
After Fox News 4 aired the odd footage, viewers were able to identify the dancing woman and tipped authorities.
Hutchinson is now behind bars on robbery charges and police say her partner, along with a third person, are responsible for another robbery in the area.

My alternate title for this post was “How America’s Got Talent destroyed an 11-year-old’s dreams, mwahahahahahahahahahaha.”
Our AGT darkhorse, rapper CJ Dippa, was slowly tortured by presenter Nick Cannon in a slow motion announcement of which semi finals act was moving forward in the competition. Although we had to say goodbye to the 6th grader Wednesday night, we can all say HELLLLLOW NURSE to hot piece 32-year-old Frenchman hip-hop dancer Haspop (yup, that’s his name, Haspop) who has made the cut.

Soccer fans couldn’t believe their eyes the moment a man stripped to a provocative g-string and raced across the field in the middle of a game!
The shocking moment unfolded in Brazil on Sunday during a match between Sao Paolo Football Club and Santos Football Club. Stunned players, spectators and TV viewers were taken by surprise when a Santos FC goal celebration was interrupted by a gallivanting shirtless male field invader who wore a black-and-white stripped g-string and waved a red sarong.
It’s unclear whether it was a show of support or a gibe to the Sao Paolo team (whose uniforms are red and black-and-white stripped).
The bomber’s intriguing and ambiguous physique has made the video an Internet hit. More than a million viewers have circulated the footage, and commenters are divided as to whether the man had pectoral implants or suffers from gynecomastia–a condition that produces an abnormal amount of fatty breast tissue in men. Confused by his muscular tone and well-endowed breasts, several video descriptions have incorrectly labeled the man a “shemale.”
Watch him get apprehended after the jump!

Last night on The Joy Behar Show, the second most beloved redhead around here (click here to see who’s the #1 ginger on my list) dished with three women from TLC’s docu-series Strange Sex Lives–and yes–the title of the show holds true.
Sexpert Barbara Carrellas is gifted in the art of the mind f*ck. Seriously. She can “think” herself into wetting a seat just by breathing a certain way. NOTE: Let’s hope they change the chairs out before the next guest arrives.
Angie Harmon doppelganger Jaiya (who we will only refer to as “the lucky one” from now on) gabs on her long-term “polyamorous” relationship with TWO men.
And lastly, our FAVORITE sex fan is 74-year-old “quintessential cougar” Hatti whose shocking sex fantasy had Joy clutching her pearls.
But the best part comes when mind f*cker Barbara reveals that she “really gets off” by breathing herself into different animal forms–including a SNAKE. If she knows of a breathing technique that can turn someone into a horse, I’m buying her book.

This hot mess is an Ohio woman named Mary Elizabeth Torres who was arrested for driving with an alcohol level three times over the legal limit. She had her 3-year-old son, 6-year-old son and 6-year-old niece seated in the car without seat belts.
According to the police report, “Torres practically fell to the ground when officers asked her to step out of the vehicle. She admitted to downing four shots a half an hour before getting behind the wheel with the children in her care.”

A woman in the country of Georgia was stunned the moment her CAT gave birth to a DOG!
She says her cat was in labor for two days and delivered a puppy with the ears and tail of a cat and the body of a canine. The miracle pup even has whiskers. Local news stations captured video of the “catdog” feeding from its mother and even got a cat-lick bath.
Puzzled scientists say it’s possibly a mutation caused by radiation, and cross-species breeding is unlikely.

A 20-year-old California man has the longest tongue in the U.S.
Nick Afanasiev, native of Moscow, has become an Internet hit–scoring more than a million YouTube views and TV appearances on Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Tyra Banks Show by showing off tricks with his 3.5-inch long tongue. It’s only .36 inches shorter than the world recorder holder, Stephen Taylor, from the UK. But he’s miles more attractive than that guy, so he’s the real winner here.
He’s hoping the attention will help further his acting career, having already appeared in some films and TV shows like I, Carly. As a bonus, he’s single. He says that most guys tell him that he’ll be a hit with the ladies, but most girls are scared of it. To that I say, step aside.

A UK man says the face of Jesus Christ appeared on the feathers of his chicken.
The 25-year-old says he was stunned when he spotted the holy image in a photo of his pet. “I literally said ‘Jesus Christ’ when I saw the picture,” he told Halesowen News. “The face of Jesus is clear to see and when I showed my mom she even pointed out the ring of thorns.”
He believes the image might be a sign from God because the chicken, named Gloria, was the only one of his chickens to survive a recent fox attack.
“It is strange that it would appear on Gloria because not long ago she was the only chicken out of 20 that wasn’t killed by a fox. She was standing on the step when he came and miraculously wasn’t touched’ Grainger added.” He added: “That’s why we called her Gloria, after Gloria Gaynor’s song I Will Survive.”

A Chinese woman says she was horrified the moment her goat gave birth to a baby born with SEVEN legs!
“It was very difficult for the goat to deliver the kid, so I used my hand to pull out. It scared me!,” goat owner Ms. Song told reporters. “It is the first time I’ve seen anything like this in 13 years.” She says the baby is able to stand on only four of the seven legs and has a hearty appetite, but a local biologist says its unlikely it’ll survive much longer.

Kim Kardashian says she was “mortified” and “traumatized” the moment she walked in on her sister Kourtney having doggy style sex with her baby daddy Scott Disick on the BALCONY of their Miami penthouse. It all unfolded during Kim’s guest spot on an episode of E!’s Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami last night.
Kim enters the apartment–unannounced–and witnesses Kourtney bent over, holding onto a balcony rail as her beau Scott brazenly has a romp with her outside. The quickie sex stops when the randy lovers hear Kim’s gasps, then the cameras briefly capture Scott’s baby maker as they try to hide their naughty bits.
