I'm Eila Adams, BACK from Costa Rica, with a big warm welcome from a place I missed very much, NAKED News! Thanks for being with us. You all met our latest guest anchor Addilyn on Monday's program and she's back TODAY, watch for her later with Entertainment. In the meantime, let's get to Carli Bei with the headlines and some VERY exciting news about a a disease affecting millions of women worldwide.
That's right Eila, scientists are calling this a MAJOR breakthrough in the fight against breast cancer.
The numbers really are staggering, and we all know someone affected by it.
Exactly, which is why this is such amazing news. Here's what's going on Eila. Welcome to the Naked Newsroom everyone! It's a landmark breakthrough in the fight against breast cancer. A global team of researchers has pinpointed 93 genes that can mutate and turn a regular breast cell into a cancer breast cell. It's a breakthrough that will help doctors further understand the causes of the disease, and more importantly, provide crucial info for designing new treatments to fight it.
A St. Louis jury has ordered Johnson and Johnson to pay 55 million dollars to a woman who claims the company's products caused her ovarian cancer. 62-year old Gloria Ristesund said she'd used J&J's talcum powder for decades. The massive settlement isn't the first of its kind either. In February, the pharmaceutical giant paid 72 million to the family of an Alabama woman in a similar case. 12-hundred similar claims have been filed against the firm. Johnson and Johnson plans to appeal the decision, and claims the link between its products and ovarian cancer are unproven.
And the races aren't officially over, but to most Americans they're a foregone conclusion! A new CNN/ORC poll has found that an overwhelming number of US citizens believe Donald Trump will battle Hillary Clinton for the White House in November. The survey shows that 84-percent of voters believe Trump will win the Republican nomination, while 85-percent are convinced it will be Clinton leading the Democratic ticket. Americans don't agree on much when it comes to politics, but they do agree on that! Back over to you Eila!
Okay thanks Carli. We'll have more from her soon. Right NOW, let's say hello to our guest anchor Addilyn, and see what's happening in the world of Entertainment! Welcome aboard, Addilyn. What can you tell us?
Eila I can tell you it's a good day to be ME, and a BAD day to be Larry Wilmore. Comedian Larry Wilmore had a ROUGH time at the White House Correspondents' Dinner this weekend. It's always hard to make fun of people to their faces, and when it goes badly, it goes BADLY! Here are a few of the low-lights, and no, there's no need to adjust your volume. The room was actually that quiet!
Ouch! Makes me glad the Naked News doesn't have a White House correspondent!
A New York man was punched in the face last week for looking like actor Shia LaBoeuf. And not because his assailant thought he WAS Shia LaBeouf. According to the victim, his attacker allegedly said quote: “This is because you look exactly like Shia LaBeouf", end quote. There is a silver lining, though. The story went viral and the man received a nice voicemail from the actor. Probably not worth getting punched in the face over, but better than nothing!
Rapper Lil' Kim has a new look, and it's one that's stirring up a lot of controversy. That's because she's now, for lack of a better term, 'looking white.' The rapper, who has admitted to undergoing plastic surgery in the past, is currently sporting blonde hair and noticeably lighter skin. Social media has been abuzz about the change, with reactions ranging from concern to outrage. All I can add is that she's always looked beautiful to me.
Amy Schumer announced in an Instagram post she would no longer pose for pictures with fans following an unfortunate encounter in South Carolina. According to the comedian, she was scared by an aggressive fan who ran up to her, started taking pictures, and wouldn't stop even as she repeatedly asked him to. She later dialed back her new policy a bit in a tweet, saying she'd still take pictures with nice people, but that it should be her choice. And I think we can all get behind that.
We all mourn in different ways, but the way sports anchor Dan Phillips chose to mourn Prince was apparently enough to get him fired! During a broadcast, the Nashville anchor peppered his sports update with Prince lyrics. He obviously intended it as a tribute to one of his heroes, but get THIS: Phillips revealed in a Facebook post that he was FIRED because management and some viewers considered what he did insensitive. On the plus side, I guess he'll have more time to party like it's 1999. And THAT my friends is Entertainment! For Naked news, I'm Addilyn!
Welcome to Dating Uncovered, I'm Whitney St. John. Everyone knows shared interests are a great place to start when looking for that special someone, but at long last, someone has identified the true key to eternal happiness: burrito compatibility. The geniuses at dating website Zoosk have created a site called “Burrit-OH!” where people are matched based on the compatibility of their toppings. And while it may have been started as an April Fools' Day prank, who's to say it's not the key to a long and spicy relationship?
Bad news for singles out there looking to date out of their league. It turns out that thanks to the rise of online dating, you could be stuck in the minors for awhile. And you can thank all those algorithms that match based on attractiveness. Forget about a 9 and a 5 being matched, unless its on one of those sugar daddy sites. It's more likely that if you're a 7 you'll be paired with a 6 or an 8.
It's a big change at the dating app Bumble. From now on, what's good for the gander will be good for the goose. On Bumble, after a match is made, women have always had 24 hours to start the conversation or the match would disappear. Now, the app has been updated so that men will also have 24 hours to reply, or risk losing the match. It's a smart move for one of the most feminist dating apps out there, and as a bonus, early testing suggests it significantly raises the response rate.
Good news for guys: it turns out you may be better off drinking a six-pack than HAVING one! A recent study revealed that, when it comes to body types, three-quarters of women would rather be with an Average Joe than a perfectly sculpted Adonis. The reason? 74 percent of women said being with a man who was physically flawless would just make them feel self-conscious about their own bodies.
And 400 years later, Shakespeare is helping men score with women! To celebrate the anniversary of his death, Match.com searched their database and discovered that the men who invoke Shakespeare in their profiles have a 27-percent better response rate than those who don't. All the world's a stage, and the people who quote Shakespeare, players. For Dating Uncovered, I'm Whitney St. John.
Hulkamania's about to run wild on Gawker - all over again! Hulk Hogan has filed yet another lawsuit against the website over the publication of his sex tape. Last month the Hulkster won 140 million dollar judgement against Gawker for invading his privacy by posting the tape. His new suit, filed in the same Florida state court, alleges Gawker intentionally inflicted emotional distress by leaking sealed transcripts that quoted him making racist remarks. The leak cost Hogan his job with the WWE, and according to the lawsuit, tarnished his global brand forever.
A Brazilian judge has ordered a 72-hour crackdown of uber-popular messaging program WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned app has refused to cooperate with authorities working on a drug trafficking investigation. Officials want WhatsApp to hand over messages that could help the case. WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum says they don't have the information investigators are looking for, because WhatsApp does not store chat history on its servers. Even so, the company says it will not jeopardize the trust and security of its billion users around the world.
And if you use Internet Explorer, for the first time in a LONG time, you're in the minority! The Microsoft web software is no longer the most-used browser. That title now officially belongs to Google's Chrome. The numbers are according to research firm NetMarketShare.com. The two browsers are far and away the most popular options for surfing, with over 41-percent market share each. Mozilla Firefox came in a distant third at less than ten percent. Now you know. For Naked News, I'm Carli Bei!
And next up we have your Overlady, Kat Curtis, with the Naked Nerd. She's got info on quite a few DC characters who are getting a wardrobe update! Over to you Kat.
Thanks Eila! The new DC revamp, Rebirth, is imminent, and we have some sneak peeks at the redesigned costumes! I really like Wonder Woman's - it's more like what we've seen so far in the DC cinematic universe, with the Xena-esque skirt, but the colors are more in line with what we're used to for Diana in the comics. Also more in line with the cinematic universe is the new Batman redesign. Aquaman has traded in his scaly shirt for a pebbled one, and has fins on his legs now. Killer Croc looks more like Swamp Thing, and Harley's new costume is, well, yikes.
The Daily Mail has a ton of new shots from the set of Star Wars episode 8. Filming is taking place at Pinewood studios in Buckinghamshire, England. The replica Millennium Falcon looks pretty detailed and holy crap, how big IS this ship?! There are also a few pics that look like Skellig Michael, which is the island that Rey meets Luke on at the end of The Force Awakens. According to Episode 8 director Rian Johnson, they're about halfway through filming the next installment of the series.
A man named Colin Furze built a functional hoverbike! Colin says the bike is hard to control, which explains why he crashes it every time. The concept is pretty cool, but those two propellers look deadly- I don't think you could pay me enough to get on that thing. Still looks less sketchy than those scooter “hoverboards” all the lame-os are snapping up these days!
Turns out being one of Draco Malfoy's right hand men prepares you for a life of swinging fists! Josh Herdman, who played villain Gregory Goyle in the Harry Potter movies, is now a full on MMA fighter! The welterweight even won his first fight. He's certainly doing better than his fellow henchman, Jamie Waylett, who played Crabbe. He was arrested for taking part in the 2011 London riots. Just goes to show you- once a Slytherin, always a Slytherin. The sorting hat never lies.
And check out this short film by Banks of Donkey Kong in real life! A super badass Mario is trying to save his girlfriend from the titular ape. It's probably better than most of the actual video game films out there- and it's definitely better than the awful Mario Bros film starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. Well, I'm going to go try my hand at making a hoverbike, you guys. If I don't come back, it's because my hand got caught in a propeller. Avenge my death! Bye!
Now it's time for our weekly From The Vault feature! This week's selection is thanks to Todd in Minnesota. He wrote in "I haven't seen or heard anything lately involving one of my all time favorite anchors, Erica Stevens. She was quite the firecracker wasn't she. I miss her spark and unpredictability. Would you mind reaching into your archives and re-introducing her to your audience?"
We don't mind a bit, Todd! Erica was definitely one of a kind and won over a LOT of fans. She was totally up for anything and was so much fun here in the studio. It didn't hurt that she was gorgeous, too. We decided that the best way to introduce her to new viewers was to pull out her terrific One on One she did with glam photographer, Paul Buceta. Enjoy it!
Hey, ladies! I want to get right back into the swing of things and talk about a couple of Whitney's Dating Uncovered stories. She said that, thanks to online dating, people can't date out of their league any more. Do you think that's true?
