Welcome to Naked News, I'm Isabella Rossini. We're turning it up with Carli Bei, going INSIDE THE BOX with Eila Adams and saying hello RIGHT NOW to Natasha Olenski for a look ahead to this week's weather forecast! What sort of theme do you have this week Nat?
We're celebrating the birthday of the woman who absolutely PERSONIFIES the term "sex symbol." Raquel Welch was born on September fifth, 1940 and is an ICON of big-screen beauty. And at 75, she's STILL as sexy as ever! So in my Naked Weather Forecast we're going to celebrate by looking at some OTHER classic beauties from silver screen history. Watch for it coming up Isabella!
Thank you very much Natasha, we'll see you shortly. Now here's Katherine Curtis with a Naked News Bulletin.
Isabella, a California judge has given the green light for Uber drivers to file a class-action lawsuit against the company. Three drivers have taken legal action over benefits and tips and argue that they're Uber employees and not contractors. Being classified as an employee means the drivers would be able to claim expenses and receive tips. Uber drivers can now sue as a group, and thousands of them could join the action. If Uber loses the lawsuit, it may have to pay for health insurance, workers' comp, and cover gas and car repairs.
A DEA crackdown on a nationwide steroid ring has ended with more than 90 arrests and 16 underground labs brought down. The covert sting operation has been ongoing since April. Busts were made across 20 states. The DEA believes that most of the materials seized in the secret labs was bought online from Chinese chemical manufacturing companies, and then converted into powerful steroids.
And ever wonder how many trees there are on this beautiful planet of ours? Well according to new research there are three TRILLION of them - or 420 for every human. A team at Yale University combined ground survey data and satellite images to reach their conclusions. It's the most comprehensive assessment of tree populations ever produced. The figure is eight times larger than the last best estimate, which was just 400 billion. The new number will help a wide range of researchers, and help scientists create more accurate climate change models. I'm Katherine Curtis, don't go away.
Thank you Kat! She'll be back with another round of bulletins later in the program. Eila Adams is next. She's going Inside the Box to tell us about how many people
actually WATCHED those crazy MTV Video Music Awards.
Welcome INSIDE everyone, the antics from the VMA's have been all over the news this week but it didn't translate into stellar ratings. The Miley Cyrus-hosted show brought in 9 point 8 million viewers, half a million LESS than last year. Despite the drop it was still the number
one cable show among viewers 12 to 43. The biggest audience by far was online though, with over 19 MILLION viewers tuning in.
Paula Deen is hoping to dance her way to a COMEBACK! The celebrity chef will appear on the 21st season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars. Paula's career took a nose-dive when she admitted making racist comments to an employee. She lost her lucrative TV deal with the Food Network and so far, has failed to win her fans back. Let's hope having two left feet when dealing with her public image doesn't translate to the dance floor!
HBO's smash hit Game Of Thrones has made the latest edition of Guinness World Records. The wildly popular series is being honored for having the largest TV drama simulcast of all time. The show's second episode of the
fifth season was broadcast to a record 173 countries at the same time. That was enough to edge out the previous record holder, CSI!
It looks like Donald Trump doesn't hold a grudge for long. The presidential hopeful has agreed to appear on an upcoming episode of NBC's The Tonight Show. Trump famously threatened to sue NBC after the network dumped his Miss USA and Miss Universe broadcasts. Trump's camp says he'll be discussing his campaign when he visits on September 11th. We're guessing he might bring up Jimmy Fallon's Trump impersonation, too. Good thing he doesn't hold a grudge, right?
And political thriller Homeland is back and looking better than ever! Season 5 picks up more than 2 years after the events of season 4's finale. Even though she's no longer working for the CIA, Carrie Mathison just can't seem to stay out of trouble! Here's a sneak peek. Mark your calenders! Season 5 premieres October 4th on Showtime. And that's what's happening, Inside The Box! For Naked News, I'm Eila Adams.
I'm Natasha Olenski and this weekend is the birthday of legendary sex symbol Racquel Welch. So we're going to celebrate with a look at her AND some other bombshells from around the world in THIS EDITION of the Naked Weather Forecast! First it's time for this week's Brainstorm Trivia! If you're out and there's a bit of wind, you might call it "breezy". But there's an actual DEFINITION of "breezy" - do you know what it is? I'll have the answer for you later.
Now, to the forecasts! There's no question that Raquel Welch is an ICON! She's got a ton of credits, but maybe her most famous is in "One Million Years BC", where her famous fur bikini became the stuff of men's dreams. Playboy named her the most desired woman of the 70s, but even now, about to turn 75, she is absolutely stunning. She was born in Chicago, Illinois, where the weekend will be NEARLY as hot as she is, with a sunny high of 89
France's Brigitte Bardot was one of the biggest sex symbols of the nineteen fifties and sixties. She showed off her sensational curves in a number of films, most famously 1956's "And God Created Woman", which shocked American moviegoers with its sexuality. Bardot retired from acting in 1973 at just 39, to devote herself to animal rights activism, which is STILL her passion. Bardot is from Paris, which has clouds and a high of 67 ahead.
Sophia Loren is one of the rare sex symbols who was also a highly respected actress. In 1962, the Italian beauty became the first actress to win an Oscar for a foreign-language film, and was nominated again in 1965. And at 80, she just won her record SIXTH David di Donatello Award, presented by the Academy of Italian Cinema. Sophia was born in Rome, where it's set to be rainy and 79 (26C)
Last but not least, we have Ann-Margret. The stunning beauty has worked extensively in film, television, and theater, as well as as a singer. She was even nominated for Grammy Awards twice - in 1962 and 2001! She gained film fame with 1963's "Bye Bye Birdie" and 1964's "Viva Las Vegas" opposite Elvis. She's still works regularly, with TWO films currently in production. Ann-Margret was born in Valsjobyn, Sweden, which will grey this weekend, with a high of just 53
Now for the answer to our Brainstorm Trivia question! The definition of "breezy" is wind that's between fifteen and twenty-five miles per hour, with mild or warm temperatures. And now you know!
That'll do it for this week's Naked Weather Forecast! For Naked News, I'm Natasha Olenski!
If you build it, they will come. If you build it out of LEGO, that is! The Danish company behind the beloved plastic bricks is now the biggest toymaker in the WORLD. Sales increased 30 percent in the first half of the year, for a total of 2-point-1-3 BILLION. The massive rise in profits can be linked to the popularity of Lego's themed sets, including Star Wars, as well as the hugely successful Lego movie.
It's not as good news for fellow toymaker Hasbro. The company is being sued by a Fox News anchor for selling a toy hamster that resembles her! Harris Faulkner claims that the plastic rodent shares a similar complexion, eye shape and eye make-up design. Oh, and the hamster's name is HARRIS FAULKNER. The REAL Faulkner is seeking 5 million in damages, plus any profits. Faulkner the hamster had no comment.
And Disney is unleashing a hoard of new Star Wars goodies on Friday in anticipation of the latest chapter, The Force Awakens. The Star Wars Youtube channel will live-stream the new toys being unboxed by the toy makers themselves, starting in Sydney and moving to a new country each hour. If you like what you see, the merchandise will be available the same day in Target, Wal-Mart and Toys'r'Us stores across the US. On an UN-related note, I might be a little busy Friday! From the Naked Newsroom, I'm Katherine Curtis.
Thanks a bunch Kat. Now that you're up to date on the latest headlines it's time to Turn It Up!! Carli Bei joins us with the latest, starting with news about Bono.
That's right Isabella. We all know the U2 frontman's had a pretty successful career on stage. But he's actually been even MORE successful OFF it.
That's not surprising, most uber-rich celebs either have a fashion line, or launch some sort of restaurant chain. So what did he do?
He bought into Facebook, BOOM, and now he's the richest musician on the planet! Here's the story! The Irish rocker made a savvy stock market move in 2009, when he bought a 2.3 percent share in the social media site for around 85 million dollars. Six years later and those shares are now worth a whopping 1.4 BILLION! So Bono basically made more on that investment then he has in his entire 40 odd year music career. When you're Bono, every day is a beautiful day.
Now to one of the weirdest music videos we've ever seen, courtesy of the one and only Miley Cyrus. Her new album, "Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz", is a collaboration with Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, who's famously odd in a charming way. We wish we could say the same about the video for the album's first single, "Do It". Had enough? Yeah that's what I thought. It goes on like that for four and a half excruciating minutes. NOT cool, Miley!
Here's another collaboration that seems odd on paper - but we think makes perfect sense. David Bowie has signed on to write music for the upcoming SpongeBob Squarepants Broadway musical! Bowie's a big fan of the cartoon series, and even lent his voice to a character in the 2007 made-for-TV movie. The rock legend is joining a handful of other big names that include John Legend and Cyndi Lauper. SpongeBob hits theaters next June!
No one's rocked harder for longer than Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister. But sadly it looks like the good times are finally catching up to the 70-year old heavy metal icon. Three songs in to Motorhead's show this week in Austin Texas, Kilmister said "I can't do it" and walked off stage. Lemmy's had a few health scares in the last couple years. He was apparently too fatigued and winded to finish the set, but came back briefly to apologize to fans and tell them he'd see them next time.
That brings us to this week's review: "Bad Magic" from - you guessed it - Motorhead! This is the band's 22nd studio effort, and they've been amazingly consistent across their four decade career. "Bad Magic" fits right in alongside their best efforts. It's fast, hard, catchy, and relentless. Here's a taste from one of the new tracks, called "Evil Eye". Hey, Motorhead might not be for everyone, but those who like them, like them a LOT. If this is Lemmy's last album he should be proud, because he's still kicking ass and taking names. We're giving "Bad Magic" 4 out of 5 Naked Ns! For Naked News, I'm Carli Bei!
I’m Angie Heyward, here to announce our BOOB of the WEEK! There were a lot of strong candidates to choose from, too. Must have been the full moon or something. But there was one real standout for us, and her name is Lidiane Leite. Lidiane is – well, now WAS – the mayor of Bom Jardim, a very poor municipality in Brazil. She was elected in 2012, at just 22 years old. It was actually her boyfriend at the time who ran for mayor, but she stepped in two days before the vote, after he was banned due to corruption allegations. She got elected, then somehow managed to confuse the job description of “mayor” with “party girl”.
Lidiane left Bom Jardim – you know, the town she was supposed to be serving – and moved to Sao Luis, a hundred and seventy miles away. There, she lived it up in a pretty fancy lifestyle. Her Instagram page showed photos of her partying, sipping champagne, jet skiing, and working out with a personal trainer.
The pics were accompanied by quotes like “I can buy whatever I want, spend it how I like”. And her mayoral duties? Well, she apparently checked in with her cabinet members via the instant messaging app “WhatsApp” most days. Such a dedicated public servant, right?
Her constituents didn’t think so, either. And it looks like they were right. She’s now on the run and has been indicted, in absentia, on accusations that she embezzled up to four MILLION dollars from state education funds! That’s money that was supposed to pay for school lunches and teachers’ salaries, and without it, the town’s education system has collapsed.
That’s about as low as you can get. Her lawyer is trying to pass the blame on to her now EX-boyfriend, and says she was “too young and inexperienced” when she took office, and "delegated many tasks” to him. That MIGHT fly, except for that whole “I can buy and spend however I like” thing. She HAD to know she didn’t earn enough to live her lifestyle, and was stealing.
One thing she DID earn, however, was the title of BOOB of the WEEK. For Naked News, I'm Angie Heyward.
It's unbelievable what some people think they can get away with. Great work as always, Angie! Now, the lovely and talented Eila Adams has joined me and we're going to answer some of the emails that came in recently!
This first one is from Ben, and it's about one of our Entertainment stories on the MTV Video Music Awards. He said "You had a couple anchors describe Kanye and his drug-addled comments as being "left of center". "Left of center" means "politically liberal." If you were meaning to say Kanye has been "off kilter" as in "unbalanced" and "acting strangely, perhaps even mentally deranged' all well and good. But what you ended up doing was insulting people who are liberal."
Hi, Ben! We definitely mean "left of center" as the slang term, exactly how you described it as "off kilter" and "unbalanced". As far as Kanye's political leanings, I don't have a clue, do you?
No, and I sincerely hope we never find out! Okay next question. This one is from from Paul, who wants to know "Loving the show as always! I just have a question about the beach episodes this year, are the anchors not allowed to be 'naked' there anymore?"
We actually touched on this one a few weeks ago. The city really ramped up security around the Pan Am Games this summer, which meant we couldn't shoot at some of our usual locations - including the nude beach. We tried for the next best thing, though, and filmed at other beaches but we could only be topless.
BOO I know! But the Games are finally done and the security is tapering off, so we're BACK! Tune into tomorrows program to find out what I mean! Okay, this last question is from Ruan, from Cape Town, South Africa! But he's not the only one with this particular question."I love your show with its awesome variety of segments! Any chance you can convince Dr Jess to appear naked during the Dating Uncovered segments?"
Believe us Ruan, No one, and I mean NO ONE, wants to see Dr Jess naked more then us! And she does all these seminars at Hedonism and other adult resorts so it's such a tease that we can't convince her to take it off.
So there you have it folks, it's not like we aren't trying! We'll finish things up with the results of our latest POLL question! We asked you if the Blush wearable vibrator was a toy YOU'd like to try with your partner
Sixty-eight percent of you said YES you would, and thirty-two percent of you said NO. Why NOT I say?
Well, for those of you who DO, they MET their crowdfunding goal, so it looks like you'll have your chance! Keep an eye out for it, but under the name LUSH instead of BLUSH. Turns out there were trademark issues.
Thanks to everyone who cast a vote, AND to everyone who wrote in. We DO love to hear from you, so feel free to contact us through Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, or by email at email@example.com
Take care everyone.
