Hello everyone, and welcome to Naked News! We're back and ready to roll after a fantastic long weekend! And what better way to kick things off than with Kat Curtis in the Naked Newsroom! She's got details of an epic bank job!
Elise, Sunday saw the kind of massive heist you normally only see in movies. From about 5 to 8 in the morning in Japan, about sixteen-hundred forged credit cards were used at fourteen-hundred ATMs. Together, they withdraw nearly THIRTEEN MILLION dollars! Each withdrawal was for the maximum of one hundred thousand yen, and there were fourteen thousand individual transactions! The cards were made with data stolen from a South African bank, and police suspect that as many as a hundred people may have been involved!
Angelina Jolie is preparing for a brand new role: Professor Jolie. The Oscar-winning actress will be a visiting professor at the London School of Economics' Center for Women, Peace and Security. This follows her work as a goodwill ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency and her strong advocacy for refugee rights, particularly for women. Sections in the course will include Gender and Human Rights, so students interested in gossip about Brad and the kids MIGHT want to think twice!
And it turns out putting pants on one leg at a time isn't the only thing world leaders do like normal people! British Prime Minister David Cameron gave a used car salesman a big shock when he turned up in person to buy a car for his wife. And not a luxury car. The PM bought a used blue Nissan Micra for a little under TWENTY-TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS! According to Iain Harris, owner of Witney Used Car Center, no discount was offered or received! Elise it's weird to think that the wife of a Prime Minister drives such a crappy used car. No offence Nissan.
And it's England, so she even has to drive it on the wrong side of the road! Thanks, Kat! Moving right along, Eila's in the on-deck, getting ready for sports, but before we get to her, let's see what Vera's up to in Entertainment!
Hey Elise - we often hear about porn actresses trying to break into Hollywood, but this time it might be the OTHER way around!
I've got the scoop on an Oscar-winning actress who wants to make her mark on the adult industry. And, a TV star's open invite to fans who want to spend a night at his amazing home. It's all coming up in entertainment so don't move a muscle! Back to you!
All right, we'll see Vera in just a few minutes. Now it's time to talk SPORTS. Eila Adams is here to help bring us up to speed on the very latest, starting with bad news for the upcoming Olympic games in Rio. Really, is there any other kind? Here's Eila.
Thanks Elise, as if worrying about the Zika virus, rampant crime, and the overwhelming pollution wasn't enough. NOW the IOC has revealed that 31 athletes could be banned from the Summer Games for failing drug tests! The IOC won't reveal any names, but says athletes from 12 countries failed tests while at the 2008 games in Beijing. And they could just be the tip of the iceberg. In the wake of the revelation of Russia's massive doping scheme, IOC officials are planning to retest 250 samples taken at the 2012 games in London.
Going, going... GONE! Some crazy Lakers fan has shelled out 180-grand for an autographed piece of the floor from Kobe Bryant's last game. The online auction closed last week. Together, the four panels from the Staples Center measure 20 feet by 8 feet. Nothing like hanging huge pieces of floor on your wall! The winning bidder chose to remain anonymous. If you feel like you missed out on the Kobe auction madness, there's still hope: the online Lakers store still has a couple 40-THOUSAND DOLLAR gold-plated Kobe hats up for grabs!
He doesn't win much in the ring anymore, but the political arena's a whole other game for Manny Pacquaio! The 37-year old boxing legend has won a seat in the Philippine Senate. It's an impressive rebound from the controversial remarks he made about gay people in February, which threatened to tank his career. Instead, Pacquiao reeled in 18 million votes, and while a seat in the Senate is nice, he's got his eyes on a much BIGGER prize. Pacquaio's hinted at wanting to be President. I wouldn't bet against him.
It looks like the NFL is saying "mahalo" and "aloha" to Honolulu! The league has held the Pro Bowl there almost every year since 1979, but that's about to change. Four cities are bidding for the rights to host the worst all-star game in sports, and Orlando Florida appears to be the front runner. The game would be played at the Citrus Bowl, which just underwent a 200 million dollar renovation.
And one of Britain's most iconic golf courses is standing by its controversial "no girls allowed" policy. Members of the Muirfield Golf Club voted against allowing ladies onto the course, citing risks like "slow play" and making women feel "uncomfortable". As a result, the club has been BANNED from hosting the prestigious British Open - a punishment members KNEW would happen if they voted against inclusion. Pretty sad day for golf. Those guys must be TERRIFIED of getting beaten by a girl! With the latest in sports, I'm Eila Adams!
Welcome to Naked At The Movies! A mob movie directed by Martin Scorsese starring Al Pacino AND Robert DeNiro? Fuhgeddaboutit! It's happening after a landmark financing deal at Cannes! The rights for "The Irishman" sold for 50 million dollars to STX Entertainment. It's based on the true story of Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, a mafia hitman who was rumored to be involved in the assassinations of JFK and Jimmy Hoffa. As if Pacino and DeNiro weren't enough, Joe Pesci - who worked with Scorsese in Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Casino - was also linked to the movie, but opted out at the last minute. Scorsese says he's confident he can reel him back in, so fingers crossed!
In other casting news, Shia LaBeouf's landed a role that we think will be PERFECT for him. He's signed on to play 80's icon John McEnroe, who's on-court temper is the stuff of legend. Shia knows a thing or two about throwing a tantrum himself. Whatever you say, Shia! The movie's called "Borg/McEnroe", and will focus on John's epic rivalry against Swedish star Bjorn Borg.
Watch out Jason Bourne, a new super spy is coming for your turf! Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is ready to star in a new action franchise based on another series from best-selling author Robert Ludlum! In "The Janson Directive", The Rock will play covert-ops expert Paul Janson. He's tasked with saving a kidnapped billionaire, but when the rescue attempt goes wrong he finds himself on the wrong end of the law! Sure it sounds a BIT Bourne-ish, but we're willing to give it a chance. The Rock actually signed on for the role in 2014, but now Universal Pictures is ready for it to launch.
We all loved Tetris the game. But Tetris the Movie?! The pieces are falling into place for it to happen! It's a joint Chinese-US effort with an 80 million dollar budget that'll be shot in China. "Tetris The Movie" is the first part of a planned trilogy. Producer Larry Kasanoff is putting the project together and promises it's "not at all what you think". I don't know WHAT to think about it, so that's probably true.
We're skeptical about Tetris, but we're capping things off with what's looking like a video game/movie franchise with HUGE potential! Assassin's Creed stars Michael Fassbender as a man brought back from death's door by a covert research group. The reason? They want to send him back in time to explore the memories of his ancestor Aguilar, who just so happens to be a master assassin! It's a story that's part "The Matrix" and part "The DaVinci Code". Next stop, 15th century Spain!
With an A-list cast that also includes Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons, this one looks like a winner. And if the uber-successful game franchise is any indication, they'll have PLENTY of material to use for sequels! Assassin's Creed is slated to hit theaters in December. For Naked at the Movies, I'm Madison Banes!
I'll be first in line that THAT one, thanks, Madison. Now let's get back to Kat with another Naked News bulletin!
Elise, paper currency is set to go the way of the dodo bird, so it's no surprise that Disney is pulling the plug on their beloved Disney Dollars. The currency, which has been in circulation since 1987 at Disney parks, stores and cruise ships, stopped being sold on May 14th. But don't worry if you've got a bunch saved up! They don't expire, and in fact, an early frenzy among collectors means holding on to your Disney money is far from GOOFY!
A recent study suggests that your Fitbit may not be a reliable way to keep track of your heart rate. The study, conducted at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, suggested that heart rate monitors could be off by as many as 20 beats per minute! The inaccuracy apparently goes up as workouts become more intense. The study was commissioned by a law firm that is currently leading a class action lawsuit against Fitbit over this very issue.
Finally today, the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland is set to become the longest and deepest railway tunnel in the world! Officially opening on June 1st, the tunnel has been cut through the Alps at a max depth of 75-hundred FEET, and it runs over 35 MILES long! The project took 17 YEARS to complete, with over 30 MILLION TONS of rock excavated. The 12 BILLION dollar project is expected to cut travel time between Zurich and Milan by over an hour! Now all I need is a plane ticket to get over there! I'm Katherine Curtis, those are your headlines.
We'll have to make a girls' weekend out of it, thanks Kat! Up next my very good friend Vera is here with all the moving and shaking in showbiz, starting with a star who's really opened himself up to the public.
We all loved Breaking Bad Elise, and now you can spend a night at the home of one of the show's biggest stars! Welcome inside Entertainment everyone! Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul has listed his gorgeous Boise Idaho ranch on Air BnB! For just 395 dollars a night - plus a hefty deposit and cleaning fee - you can stay in the cozy mid-century house. The place is getting rave reviews, and even features a geothermal spa and pool! Aaron's a BIG fan of AirBnb. He and his wife use it SO much that the company recently gave him a free weekend in Utah at a 5-thousand dollar a night lodge!
She's an Oscar winner and a bonafide big screen legend - and she wants to direct PORN! Susan Sarandon caused a stir at the Cannes Film Festival with her comments on the current state of adult films. Susan thinks the porn industry is too male-oriented, and holds little appeal for women. She says it's time to create artful porn that speaks to the complicated female mind, and she thinks she's just the person to do it. Let's hope Susan opts for a role in front of the camera too. At the perfect porn age of 69, Sarandon's still smokin'!
Supermodel Cara Delevingne took an unorthodox approach to preparing for her role in the upcoming Suicide Squad film. In an interview with W magazine, she says she got completely naked, ran into a forest in the middle of the night, and howled at the moon! I bet most of our viewers would line up to see THAT movie! Cara's set to play the evil Enchantress in the superhero flick. Based on the training, we're optimistic Cara will show off her super supervillain body on the big screen, too.
The answer is “He just won the Jeopardy 'Power Players' tournament.” If you buzzed in and said “Who is Louis CK?”, you're a winner! The comedian took the final with a total of 18,399 dollars, beating out The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart and Kate Bolduan of CNN in a runaway. As a reward, Jeopardy will be donating 50 thousand dollars to Louis' charity of choice, the Fistula Foundation. Not bad for a professional funnyman going up against some heavyweight journalists!
And to be naked or NOT to be naked, that is the question. For a recent production of The Tempest in New York's Central Park, the answer was to be naked! The all-female cast performed the show recently, free of charge and largely free of costume! It was mounted in collaboration with the Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society, a group that regularly does topless outdoor book clubs in the city. New York state law generally doesn't allow full nudity in public, but exceptions are sometimes made for plays and exhibitions. Good thing all the world's a stage! That's the latest in Entertainment, I'm Vera, thanks for watching.
I'm Isabella Rossini. In this week's Naked Foodie, rumors are SWIRLING that Amazon is about to add FOOD to their private label line! The online mega-retailer already has house brand goods like office and kitchen supplies. But this would be their first foray into perishables like coffee, spices, and snacks. Amazon has declined to respond to the rumors, but speculation is that Amazon Prime members will be able to start shopping from the new line within the next few weeks!
The Wendy's restaurant chain has announced they'll be adding self-service kiosks in all six thousand of their locations. The move is being seen as a response to California and New York's legislation that'll raise minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. Financially, Wendy's has seen better days. Its stock values dropped nine percent in recent months, as sales have fallen. The fast food outlet's raised some menu prices in hopes of boosting revenue.
A Pizza Hut in London, England got to test out pizzas made with a craft beer infused crust! Diners at the outlet who whispered "I like it HOP" to their server got to try the special offerings, which COULD be rolled out if they're popular enough. A spokesperson for the chain credited the popularity of craft beers for the idea. They've been adding craft beers to their restaurants' drink list, and hope that the brew-infused crusts will also help them cash in on the trend.
This is "getting high and eating pizza" taken to a whole new level - literally! Pizza Hut in Tanzania set a Guinness World Record for the highest ever pizza delivery on land. A pepperoni 'za was delivered to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, nineteen thousand, three hundred and forty-one feet up. They definitely didn't make a thirty-minutes-or-it's-free guarantee, though. It took professional guides six days to hike it up the mountain. Don't make that face. We've ALL eaten six-day-old pizza.
And finally, when the Atlanta Falcons' new Mercedes Benz Stadium opens in 2017, fans will be in for a PLEASANT surprise! They're adding LOWER PRICED concessions! Fans will be able to get hot dogs and refillable soft drinks for just two dollars each. And domestic beer will only cost ya five bucks. Of course, it's not out of the goodness of the team's heart. NFL game attendance has been dropping, and concession prices were pegged as one of the biggest reasons. Who cares why - cheap waffle fries! That's it for this edition of the Naked Foodie. I'm Isabella Rossini.
Thanks Isabella, all good things must come to an end, but before we go, I've got the winner of our most recent caption contest! The photo was of Angie Heyward and a jar of pickled pork lips. If you'd told me before that those even existed, I wouldn't have believed you, but there they are! Anyhow, our winning caption came from Eric Sweeten. He wrote "If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pork lips, where's the peck of pickled pork lips that Peter Piper picked?"
Thank you SO much for making me have to say that, Eric! Eighteen takes later. Drop us a private message on our Facebook page and we'll arrange to get you your prize. And there's a NEW caption contest up now, so be sure to enter for YOUR chance to win.
Stay tuned for Mike and Holli from Playboy Radio later this week in the Schmooze with Carli. We'll also be debuting a new segment called Naked News Moves. This one features our recent guest anchor Hanna. Or as I like to call her, the woman with the world's best boobs. Plus we'll be going back to Hedonism with Eila & Carli and the group from young Swingers Week. So lots to look forward to. Take care everyone, and we'll see you back here tomorrow.
