Welcome one and all to the sometimes-imitated, never-duplicated, Naked News! I'm Katherine Curtis and I'll be your guide through all our sexy programming today. Before we get going, let's head outside the Naked News studios for a check on the weather with Eila Adams. What sort of theme do you have going on this week Eila?
I'm all about eye catching first ladies Kat, and that's because this weekend would have been Jacqueline Kennedy's 87th birthday. She was one of the most beautiful and graceful first ladies that ever was and in her honor, I'll be taking a look at a few OTHER sexy and intriguing First Ladies from around the world. That's coming up in the Naked Weather Forecast so don't miss it!
All right, we'll see you soon Eila, now let's jump right into today's headlines. And for that, let's say hello to Natasha Olenski.
Kat imagine you buy a ridiculously expensive piece of technology, it gets delivered to you 2 years later than planned, and then you find out it doesn't work properly.
I'd be BEYOND pissed and want answers from someone pretty quick!
Well, that's exactly what the US Navy is dealing with right now in regards to their new gaxpayer funded 13 BILLION dollar aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R Ford. Here's the story. Welcome to the newsroom everyone! The ship was 2.3 billion dollars over budget and has taken two years longer to join the fleet than originally expected. But that's not even the worst part. An internal memo obtained by CNN shows that upon recent inspection by the Pentagon, officials found the vessel STILL wasn't ready for combat! Major red flags went up when it came to launching and recovering aircraft, conducting air traffic control, moving munitions onboard, and basic self-defense. In other words: the basic things a 13 billion dollar aircraft carrier should do! Addressing the issues could mean a major design overhaul, which likely means another lengthy delay. Instead of having it operational this September, it now looks like the USS Gerald R Ford won't hit the high seas until some time NEXT year or beyond!
If the line at your local convenience store is a little longer than usual this week, here's why: the Powerball jackpot has now ballooned to 478 million dollars! There were no winners after Wednesday night's draw - the 22nd in a row without a grand prize winner. The jackpot has been growing steadily since May 11th, and is now the 5th biggest in American history! If you're feeling lucky - and you'll need to be with current odds of winning at 1 in 292 million - grab your tickets before the next draw on Saturday!
Winning the Powerball would be nice, but this might be even better! An Australian man entered a 49 dollar raffle and walked away with the prize of a lifetime: his very own Pacific island resort! The man, identified only by his first name, Joshua, is the proud new owner of The Kosrae Nautilus Resort in Micronesia. The hotel was started years ago by co-owners Doug and Sally Beitz. They've decided to retire, but rather than selling their oasis to the highest bidder, they opted to leave things to chance by holding a lottery. The draw was held on Tuesday, and the winner got a profitable debt-free business with 16 full-time employees, 8 motor vehicles, 2 boats, and a checking account holding 10-thousand dollars. Not too shabby! Don't go away.
I'm Angie Heyward, here to crown our BOOB of the WEEK. We couldn't narrow it down to just ONE Boob this week, because it's been a veritable CAVALCADE of IDIOCY! And it's all thanks to Pokemon Go.
I'm not going to slam the game itself. Pokemon Go has some excellent qualities. It's bringing people together for a common goal. It's getting people outside and walking around. It's fun! But it's a GAME, and so there's a time and a place for it.
That place is not trespassing in strangers' yards. It's not stageside at a Beyonce concert. Nor is it among the graves at Arlington National Cemetery. And it's DEFINITELY not at the AUSCHWITZ MEMORIAL!
The idiocy isn't even restricted to people playing in entirely inappropriate locations. A disturbing number of people are plain and simply, getting way too engrossed. I mean, STUPIDLY engrossed. You want examples? I've got examples! In Encinitas California, two men climbed through a fence whole Pokemon tracking, and then fell nearly 90 feet off a bluff. In Clarksboro, New Jersey, a woman got stuck in a tree and needed 911 to send a fire crew to rescue her.
Outside the US, in Java, a man wandered onto a military base, and in Bosnia, enough people have apparently wandered into MINEFIELDS that the government has had to remind people that's a bad idea! Yes, people are risking a blast ZONE to catch a BlasTOISE!
And even WORSE, people aren't even putting down the damn game while they're DRIVING. In Toronto, a driver, playing the game, nearly ran over a PEDESTRIAN, who was playing the game. In New York, a man injured himself AND wrote off a car when he crashed into a tree. And perhaps the most are-you-kidding example of all, watch what happened in Baltimore. I bet you know how it happened!
Bingo! PLAYING a dumb-ass GAME. So, every Pokemon Go player out there who's traipsing through private property, ignoring the real world, overlooking obvious dangers, or making the streets unsafe for the rest of us... YOU are our BOOBS of the WEEK. For Naked News, I'm Angie Heyward.
I'm Madison Banes. Inside The Box this week, Muscle Beach has always been pretty hot, but suddenly, it's SIZZLING! We reported last week that Arnold Schwarzenegger was developing a TV series about his time there called Pump. And now it's been announced that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and his production company will be creating a scripted series for the USA Network called, simply, Muscle Beach. The hour long drama will be set in the excess of the '80s and will follow a “colorful tribe of lost souls.” Not sure what that means, but The Rock's Instagram post announcing the series has over 380 thousand likes, and that ain't squat!
Also hot of late is the work of John le Carre! Following the success of The Night Manager, another of his novels is being adapted as a mini-series! The Spy Who Came In From The Cold is a Cold War classic from 1963 that topped the New York Times bestseller list! It follows a British spymaster on a mission of revenge! The adaptation is being done by the screenwriter behind Slumdog Millionaire.
Everyones favorite loud mouthed canine, Triumph the Insult Dog, is BACK, and he's getting political! He'll soon be back sticking it to both the republicans AND democrats in Triumph's Summer Election Special 2016! It's a follow up to his election special from February, which covered the primaries and earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special! The hour-long special will be streaming on Hulu starting August 11th, but if you can't wait, here's a sneak peak of Triumph zinging journalist Bob Schieffer!
And Triumph isn't the only spinoff star from the world of late night! The Carpool Karaoke segment from The Late Late Show With James Corden is becoming its own series! Though it won't be hosted by Corden, the 16-episode series for Apple Music will draw heavily on the concept that has drawn over 800 MILLION views on YouTube! It will still feature celebrities riding and singing, but will also see the stars visiting sites with special meaning to them. The acquisition is a pretty big deal for Apple as they start to develop original TV-style content.
It's pretty slim pickings for streaming series releases this week, but Netflix was kind enough to give us a little methadone to help us through our withdrawal! Which may be an ironic analogy, because I'm referring to a preview for the second season of Narcos! The series looks at the battle between legendary drug lord Pablo Escobar and the DEA, and as you might expect, the second season sees the stakes get even higher!
I know this is based on real events, so I could spoil it with a Wikipedia search, but honestly, this series is just too much fun! All ten episodes of the second season begin streaming on September 2nd. So I just need to hold on until Labor Day weekend...I'm Madison Banes, and that's what's happening, Inside the Box!
In other news today, for most of us, the Ice Bucket Challenge was about watching celebrities and others getting cold, and more importantly, wet! But the 2014 fad was also a major fundraiser for the ALS Association, netting the non-profit organization over 100 million dollars in donations! And now, one of their research investments has paid off! The gene sequencing researchers at Project MinE have identified a gene connected to the disease called NEK1! This discovery could be the key to a greater understanding and possible treatment for the devastating disorder!
You would think by their very nature, dietary supplements would be good for you, but according to Consumer Reports, they're anything but! They identified 15 ingredients found in supplements that they say carry far more risk than benefits. The items on the list, including caffeine powder and red yeast rice, can cause side effects including organ damage, seizures, and cardiac arrest! The report also notes that because supplements aren't classified as medications, the FDA is limited in what it can do about them! So buyer beware!
And it turns out an HOUR a day keeps the doctor away! A major new study involving more then a million people suggests that putting in AT LEAST an hour a day of physical activity can cancel out the negative health effects of sitting at a desk, EIGHT hours a day! The study found that people who sat through the workday but stayed this active had a lower risk of death than people who sat less but exercised less too! An hour a day of exercise is substantially more than the 150 minutes a week currently recommended by the World Health Organization! Bottom line here folks, being active is good for you. For Naked News, I'm Natasha Olenski.
Thanks for the updates, Nat. Up next is Eila Adams who's looking ahead to the weekend forecast.
Kat, until Hillary Clinton's evolution from First Lady to Presidential candidate, Jacqueline Kennedy was arguably the most prominent First Lady in US history. To commemorate what would have been her 87th birthday, I'll be telling you more about her, and some other fascinating - and eye-catching! - First Ladies in THIS edition of the Naked Weather Forecast!
Let's get sworn in with a little Brainstorm Trivia! In 1953, the US adopted women's names as convention for naming hurricanes. But the first US hurricane to get a woman's name was earlier than that. Do you know what hurricane it was? Stick around for the answer!
Now to the forecasts! Jacqueline and John F Kennedy's time in the White House became known as the "Camelot" years. She was educated, beautiful, and became a fashion icon. But she wasn't just eye candy. After the assassination of JFK, and the death of second husband Aristotle Onassis, she worked as a book editor, and fought to help preserve New York's Grand Central Terminal. Jackie was born in Southampton, New York, where the weekend will see sun turning to thunderstorms, and a high of 80.
Eva Peron remains a controversial figure, even sixty-plus years after her death. But it's undeniable that the former actress and model helped her husband, Juan Peron, win the Argentinian presidency. Her striking looks and charisma gained fame worldwide. She even made the cover of Time Magazine in 1947 - a first for a South American first lady. Eva was born in Los Toldos, Argentina, which will see some clouds and a high of 61 this weekend.
Mehriban Aliyeva is the current first lady of Azerbaijan. Before her husband became President, she qualified as a physician and worked at a research institute. She's also been a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador and runs a humanitarian organization. But let's face it - outside of Azerbaijan, most people will only know her for being THIS gorgeous at 51. She was born in the country's capital of Baku, which will get a mostly sunny weekend with the mercury hitting 87.
And you can't talk hot first ladies without mentioning Carla Bruni Sarkozy. Before she married France's then-President Nicolas Sarcozy, she was a model and singer. As a model, she dated rockstars and earned millions working with top fashion houses. A nude photo of her once sold for over ninety thousand dollars - and was worth every cent! Carla was born in Turin, Italy, where it'll be sunny and 88 until storms roll in late Sunday.
Now for the answer to our Brainstorm Trivia question!
The first hurricane in the US to be named was "George" in 1947, but two years after that was the first woman's name - Hurricane Bess, named for First Lady Bess Truman. Now you know! That's your weekend weather! For Naked News, I'm Eila Adams.
Carli Bei sits down with rockers Skrou
And that brings us to today's wrap up. Isabella's joined me, and we're going to answer some of your feedback emails. I'll take this first one. It's from Duarte, and he wrote "Hi, Love your show and all the beautiful anchors. I especially love "The Schmooze". I would love if you could somehow get Maitland Ward to appear on The Schmooze (preferably nude)! P.S. I was so happy to find an old episode of The Schmooze with Twiggy Tallant (the Nerdy Stripper). I have loved her since the first time I saw her on "Vegas Rat Rods".
Great to hear you're a fan, Duarte! And you know, we would LOVE to get Maitland Ward on our show. If anyone knows how to get a hold of her, let us know and we'll make it our MISSION to get her here.
I've got a question here from Stephen, who said "I'm not exactly sure why Whitney and Carli looked so totally sexy hosting Sunday's show from the nude beach, other than the fact that Whitney and Carli always look so totally sexy when they're nude. But today, when Whitney and Carli were hosting the show from the nude beach, they both looked so totally sexy. Does that make any sense?"
The syntax may be quirky, Stephen, but we get exactly what you mean! And we'll make sure to let Carli and Whitney know you enjoyed their body of work. For anyone who missed it, check out our Archives dated July 24.
The last email today is from Ralph. He asks "Was looking for the photo shots of past and present anchors. Are they still online or have they been retired? Those still shots are a happy reminder of how many hours of my time learning about current affairs were spent. And not too bad to look at either."
We definitely still have plenty of photo shoots available for you, Ralph. Just log on to the site and go to the "Anchors" area. Click on one of our photos and you'll see the bio, and if you scroll down, you'll see all the available photo sets. Enjoy!
Thanks to everyone who wrote in. If YOU have a question or comment for us, be sure to let us know by emailing email@example.com. We might just answer your question here on the program!
We'll see you all back here again tomorrow for more Naked News. Take care!
