Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Playboy Mansion with Bunnies kid friendly?

April 21st, 2011
Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Playboy Mansion with Bunnies kid friendly? Holiday News meets Hollywood Gossip! Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Playboy Mansion with Bunnies kid friendly? [Apr. 22] Here's some strange holiday weekend news for ya... did you know that every year, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner throws an Easter Egg hunt at the Playboy Mansion that seriously outdoes the one at the White House? That is, if you measure the kid friendly even in terms of bunny sightings. The Playboy bunnies from various eras got together and brought their celebrity children (you know -- the ones that are NOT famous because mom posed in the nudie magazine and might not have gone on to do more or less spectacular things). The kids were treated to an Easter Egg hunt featuring actress Pamela Anderson and rock and roll star Gene Simmons (movie star of reality TV fame and lead singer for the rock band KISS). How, exactly, Hef chose to further tie in the bunny theme with Easter in any of the mansion rooms away from the kids is not quite clear (thankfully), but suffice it to say that if you peruse the photo gallery of the 2011 Playboy Mansion Easter Egg Hunt here, the only person looking lascivious seemed to be Gene Simmons. Looking for a little bunny tail, perhaps, while he was a house guest? More good news and green gossip on this [...]

Glenn Beck leaving FOX News to compete with Jon Stewart and Comedy Central?

Glenn Beck leaving FOX News to compete with Jon Stewart and Comedy Central? Now THAT is funny! Glenn Beck leaving FOX News to compete with Comedy Central? [Apr. 21] Glenn Beck says he's not going to hold back against Jon Stewart of The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report, both comedians and commentators for the Comedy Central cable television network, once The Glenn Beck Show is discontinued by FOX later this year. Both Stewart and Colbert have repeatedly lampooned Glenn Beck for some of his outrageous commentary, including impersonating Beck's end-of-the-world fatalism. "I am going to make sure that Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart do not occupy the space of comedy alone," Glenn Beck said, according to Death and Taxes magazine. News commentator Glenn Beck has said he'll be leaving his show later this year, but that he has no animosity toward FOX News. He has said he's looking for opportunities to change media and says he will not be doing it in New York, even though his media company, Mercury Radio Arts, is set up in New York with no plans to move, according to Business Insider. But can Glenn Beck even begin to make it in comedy? Some say maybe. A report from Time magazine says writer Joel Stein was tapped to help write material for Beck for a Common Sense Comedy Tour in 2009. Stein wasn't exactly favorable to the FOX News personality, but he wasn't completely terrible about it either. He noted Beck had a couple of cute jokes of his own, but said, "It turns out that coming up with jokes for members of a reactionary, religious, libertarian audience is not easy."

Around the world yacht racing enthusiasts just say no to fossil fuels?

April 21st, 2011
Around the world yacht racing enthusiasts just say no to fossil fuels? Green Living! Around the world yacht racing enthusiasts just say no to fossil fuels? [Apr. 21] You don't have to be a full time green celebrity to realize that going green makes perfect sense. Called "the world's ultimate solo challenge," wind power fuels an eight month solo yacht race around the world that has been held every four years since 1982. The race began in La Rochelle, France in October, and is expected to conclude after the fifth and final leg of the race from Charleston, SC, back to La Rochelle. "I'm not an environmentalist, or I don't thump it too hard, but I am there," said Derek Hatfield of Nova Scotia, who has placed second in the latest leg of the race, according to Reuters. "Things have changed a lot more than we think. I hope it's not too late. I hope that we can make a difference." And that's the perfect attitude to take. We may not all be green celebrities able to afford green technologies to help us get away from fossil fuels completely, but demonstrating that it can be done, over the long haul, especially for such a grueling race, is promising. These green skippers are sailing what are called "Eco 60s", which are old Open 60 yachts outfitted with solar panels, wind generators, and hydrogenerators that power the autopilots, GPS, satellite phones, and laptops that the skippers use while on the seas. "The goal, of course, is not to use any fossil fuel at all," said Derek. More good news and green gossip on this [...]

Going Green: Chevrolet Volt named 2011 World Green Car at NY Auto Show Going Green! Star celebs fav green car Chevrolet Volt named 2011 World Green Car at NY Auto Show -- [Apr. 21] Late night talk show hosts Jay Leno and David Letterman ought to be happy. The 2011 Chevrolet Volt was named 2011 World Green Car of the Year at the New York Auto International Auto Show this week, and both star celebs have been endorsing going green automobiles. The celebrities have actually come forward to give their celebrity endorsement to green transportation on both of their respective television shows, helping promote the idea that clean and green transportation is the way to go. Further, both star celebs have shown support for American auto products including the Ford Fusion and the new Chevy Volt. While Ford has remained financially independent, Chevy took bail out money from the U.S. government. There has been some private sector criticism that any awards given to the Chevy Volt are at the behest of President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and House Democrats. However, the people at Chevy who participated in the design, production implementation, and marketing of the new green car say that playing politics to win favors in the United States just ain't so. "The selection of the Volt as the World Green Car is a further proof point of the fuel-efficient technologies that are now being offered by the Chevrolet brand around the world," said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. "This award, and the others that have preceded it, validate the efforts of the development team to build a truly remarkable vehicle with the potential to transform transportation around the globe." The Chevrolet Volt was chosen from an initial entry list of 12 new vehicles from around the world, then a shorter list of 10, then three finalists: the Chevrolet Volt, the BMW 320d Efficient Dynamics Edition and the Nissan Leaf. The award is decided by a panel of global automotive journalists. More good news and green gossip on this [...]
