Robin Williams dead after apparent suicide

Robin-WilliamsActor Robin Williams was found dead inside his home in Northern California on Monday. The Marin County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that Williams, 63, has passed away.

While an investigation is still ongoing, authorities believe Williams committed suicide. He was found unconscious and experts suspect he took his own life by way of asphyxia.

Williams checked into rehab last month and was said to be struggling with depression. He battled drug and alcohol addiction in the 1980s but said he had been sober for more than 20 years.

Williams won Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in “Good Morning, Vietnam, “The Fisher King” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.” He also won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in “Good Will Hunting,” one of my all-time favorite movies.

Sports fans may have enjoyed the 1986 film “The Best of Times,” in which Williams played a banker who obsessed over dropping a crucial pass during a football game while he was in high school.

Kate Upton won’t get naked because of mean blogs, social media

Kate Upton SI swimsuit cover

Many of us go to sleep imagining what Kate Upton looks like naked. We dream about her. We fantasize about doing unmentionable things with her body. We think about what she looks like without clothes.

Unfortunately for all of us, our imaginations are all we will have.

Kate Upton says she will not be posing naked for pictures any time too soon. And you aholes are to blame.

In an interview with Details Magazine, Upton was asked why she hasn’t posed nude yet. She says it’s because of you meanies on social media and the blogs.

Is your voice also the reason why you have stayed away from being photographed naked? Being shot nude by great fashion photographers is very common among famous models like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Lara Stone.

For me those photos are art. Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it’s received in a very positive way. But with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don’t think that my pictures would be received in the way that I’d want them to be received. That’s why I’ve stayed away from them. I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that.

I get the whole social media thing. Now all those pervs who in the past would have to keep their fantasies to themselves or at worst send in some fan snail mail actually have the ability to show Kate how pervy they are with one simple tweet. But the blogs? We love Kate. We’re nice. Maybe she’s talking about all those idiotic ones who call her fat. Screw them, Kate. We at LBS like some meat on them bones.

Until she bares it all, we’ll just have to settle for her teasing us with extremely revealing photos. And awesome videos.

McKayla Maroney threw out first pitch by doing gymnastics routine (Video)

McKayla Maroney was in Chicago on Friday and threw out the first pitch prior to the White Sox-Twins game, and she put a gymnastics twist on it.

The 18-year-old Olympic gold medalist busted out what looked like a cartwheel and front handspring to bring her about 20 feet away from the plate, and she still threw her pitch out of the zone. But she gets an A for creativity, so we won’t be too harsh on her for the toss.

Plus, like she pointed out on Twitter, she’s already proven she can make the throw from the mound:

Apparently the throw at the Sox game was just her changeup:

We are definitely impressed.

UCLA, Pauley Pavilion flooded like crazy after water line breaks

Parts of UCLA’s campus and a portion of Sunset Blvd were flooded like crazy on Tuesday afternoon after a water line broke on Sunset Blvd. which runs along the north border of the campus, before finally being shut off after abound three hours.

The water main broke around 3:24 p.m., leading to water just rushing out around Pauley Pavilion. Next to Pauley Pavilion are some athletic fields used mostly for intramural activities, and there is an underground parking lot below the fields. The water outside Pauley was about ankle deep and rushing down the stairs to the parking lot, resembling the portion of the Universal Studios tram ride where the flood occurs:

The pipe that burst is 30 inches in diameter and dates back to 1921.

Oh, and did we mention that Southern California is supposedly in a drought? And did we mention that tax dollars will be paying to fix these problems? And did we mention that Pauley Pavilion recently underwent a $133 million renovation? Sounds like a blast.

One person needed to be rescued and a few cars reportedly were stranded as a result of the flood.

Water was being lost at around 35,000 gallons a minute according to a spokesperson. An estimated 8-10 million gallons of water were lost in total.

Below are more pictures and videos of the flooding at UCLA:

Lenny Dykstra: Charlie Sheen is not as wild as he seems

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen developed a reputation for being one of the wildest and craziest celebrities of the 21st century, but Lenny Dykstra says the actor’s public image does not reflect reality.

Nails was on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia as a guest during the All-Star Thursday show and talked about Sheen at one point. Nails was quick to set the record straight on the Hollywood bad boy.

“Charlie Sheen is a very, very good person. A generous … (the party reputation) is way overblown. Way overblown,” said Dykstra.

Dykstra then revealed his secret to judging people.

“The eyes tell everything. You can look at someone’s eyes and tell if they’re a weird, perverted dude. The guy is a rock-solid, cast-iron generous, great friend.

“The perception of him is waaayyyyy wrong.”

Well, if there’s anyone whose instincts we should trust, it’s a guy who went bankrupt, was convicted of fraud and money laundering, bounced a check to a prostitute, was accused of having housekeepers give him oral sex on Saturdays and a guy who was accused of sexually harassing a 17-year-old girl. When Lenny Dykstra speaks, you listen, because that guy knows what he’s talking about. And I’m sure Sheen appreciates the character endorsement from Nails.

Dan Bilzerian talks sex, guns, poker, Instagram fame in Howard Stern interview

Dan Bilzerian is living the life most people dream about. Check that: most peoples’ dreams probably wouldn’t compare to his lifestyle.

Bilzerian is a professional poker player who also is a venture capitalist and part-time actor. He’s gained fame over the past few years by posting pictures on Instagram of his surreal lifestyle, which includes partying with beautiful, half-naked women, firing guns, and traveling to exotic locations via private yachts and jets.

The 33-year-old, who estimates his net worth at around $100 million, was on “The Howard Stern Show” Tuesday to promote his role in the movie “The Equalizer,” which is due out in September.

But mostly they just talked about Bilzerian’s incredible life.

Bilzerian comes from a wealthy family — his father was once estimated to be worth $400 million and made his money as a corporate takeover guy following a successful run in the military and schooling at elite universities such as Stanford and Harvard business school. Bilzerian, like his father, did not finish high school and entered the military. He actually spent 510 days in Navy SEAL training before being kicked out two days before graduation.

The 510 days in SEAL training was spent over two stints. Bilzerian says the first stint did not go well because he entered with a stress fracture, and the second time he got a safety violation.

Because he moved around a lot in high school and was training so much with the SEALs, Bilzerian did not experience the sexual fun that he has now. And he’s more than made up for it since.

Chris Pratt challenged Dave Bautista to fight while on Ambien (Video)

Dave-BautistaDave Bautista is a very, very large man. Chris Pratt isn’t exactly a small guy, but the actor would be squashed like a pesky insect if he ever went toe-to-toe with Bautista. That’s why the thought of Pratt challenging the 6-foot-6, 278-pound WWE star to a fight is hilarious.

During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to promote their upcoming movie “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Bautista and Pratt told a funny story about Pratt texting the six-time WWE champion and telling him he could take him.

“I get this text … Chris and I were both amateur wrestlers and I get this text one night … it’s the sweetest text in the world,” Bautista recalled. “He’s telling me how much he loves me and he says he’s so proud of me. He’s amazed I’m doing such a great job, and then the farther you go down … he’s calling me out in this text saying he thinks he could take me and he said nobody has to know!”

Pratt then explained that he had no recollection of sending the text because he was under the influence — of sleep medication.

“He came up to me and goes, ‘Chris, I want to talk to you about this text you sent last night,’ and I was like, ‘what text?'” Pratt said. “I had taken an Ambien the night before. It was like a drunk text.”

Bautista was obviously forgiving of the boneheaded challenge, otherwise Pratt would no longer be with us.
