As the World Cup (a.k.a. the month-long period during which your entire Facebook feed suddenly demonstrates a rabid fanaticism about soccer) rolls on, observers have begun to speculate as to who will be handing out the trophy once the tourney comes to a close on July 13. Typically, the president of the host nation—in this case, Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff—hands out the trophy. But Rousseff is not exactly the most popular citizen at the moment, as she was jeered—in intense fashion—during the opening ceremony last week, as the country has spent some $11 billion on the World Cup while, per the Boston Globe, “tens of millions of Brazilians are poor.” (For more background on the complicated, unsettling World Cup spending situation, John Oliver’s take is worth a watch.)
Anyway, since Rousseff is as popular right now as an Irish soccer fan in a bar for British soccer fans (sorry, our soccer analogies don’t get out much), FIFA has decided to ask Gisele Bündchen, arguably the country’s most famous citizen, to do the honors. According to the Globe, “barring any riots that would make it unsafe,” Bündchen—envy of celebrity-kind—will take the gig, and bring along husband Tom Brady (it is unclear whether Brady will actually present the trophy alongside his wife—we hope so, if only because the country seems to bring out his inner Fred Astaire, and that could add some pizzazz to the ceremony). Bündchen would make an appropriately glamorous trophy presenter given the news that the trophy itself will be encased in a monogrammed, handcrafted Louis Vuitton case, an item which would upstage pretty much any human in the world except for Gisele Bündchen.
Actress Stacey Dash, best known for her role in the 1995 film Clueless, claims that it is 'propoganda' to say that Republicans are against gay marriage.
Dash, 47, works as a contributor for Fox News and tells TMZ: '[Republicans] are for equal marriage, we’re not against that… we’re not against that at all. We believe everyone should have the same rights.'
The actress, who also starred for three seasons in the TV series version of Clueless, was then asked about vocal anti-gay members of the party such as the Tea Party faction.
She said: 'That’s just propaganda. It’s not true, you know? That’s a certain amount of people, you can’t just throw a blanket over everyone because certain people have one opinion.'
Dash, who has been married and divorced three times, wasn't asked about the Republican Party's official platform which has historically been against same-sex marriage.
For his latest role, Sam Trammell doesn’t deal with any vampires or werewolves–just weepy teens as Shailene Woodley’s dad in The Fault in our Stars. At the film’s premiere, he dished about the seventh season of “True Blood,” where he’s been a cast member since the show bowed in 2008.
“I get naked as much as I’ve ever gotten naked in this season. And there’s a few other people that get naked. Joe [Manganiello] gets naked. We’re not going to do a final season without getting naked.”
As for any other spoilers, he wouldn’t elaborate. “I do know how it ends,” Trammell said. “I can tell you that.”
The last season of “True Blood” starts on HBO on June 22.
The German actress sparked gossip about her relationship status when she was pictured wearing a ring on her wedding finger earlier this year (14), with reports suggesting she was planning to exchange vows with her long-term partner after nearly a decade together.
Kruger has been open about her views on marriage in the past, explaining she has been put off by the breakdown of her first union to French actor/director Guillaume Canet, and she is adamant the recent speculation is false.
She tells The Times newspaper, "I feel like I've gotten engaged 10 times over the past year... I'm not so into marriage, I don't have the dream of the white dress... I do believe in the commitment and the romance and the idea that there is one person for you..."
However, Kruger, 37, admits she does dream of starting a family with her actor boyfriend, adding, "I didn't think I wanted kids until a couple of years ago. Now I hope it is for me, but who knows. By the time I really try, maybe it won't happen."
Karl Lagerfeld usually invites Diane Kruger for a glass of wine when they bump into each other on the street.
The 37-year-old star lives next door to the Chanel creative director in Paris and they are good friends. She spends a lot of time with him when she is in the French capital and couldn't think of a better person to while away the nights with.
"Yes. I run into him a lot, especially as he prefers to work at night," she told Stylist magazine. "I'll come home late and he's often in the street shooting. Then he'll invite me up for dinner or a glass of wine and a chat. It's lovely to have him right next door."
Karl is famed for having a highly-pampered cat called Choupette. The fluffy white creature has her own maid and gets meals cooked specially for her, with Diane's pet not so spoilt.
"No. I think his cat goes with him. We do share a passion for cats though," she explained. "I also have a cat - not quite as well-groomed and pretty as his, I might add - so we exchange cat pictures, which I guess is a bit sad but also really great."
Diane has a slim figure, but don't make the mistake of thinking it comes easily. The star works hard to stay in shape and had to make an extra effort after the festive period. She and her long-term partner Joshua Jackson didn't think about their weight, which they soon came to regret.
"Right now I'm obsessed with Pilates. I got into it after Christmas as we'd spent a month in Paris and got so fat from over-indulgence," she laughed. "Joshua and I came home and were like, we have to do something about it. So I started Pilates and Joshua started boxing... I have this amazing woman teaching me. She's about 48 and her body is so insane. I told her I'd fire her unless she got me into the same shape."

she doesn't sound very excited about the idea.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic -- considered one of the best players in the world -- just ripped Team USA soccer ... at least, we think he did.
The 32-year-old Swedish-born striker was out at Boa Steakhouse in L.A. over the weekend -- instead of Brazil -- because Sweden didn't qualify for the World Cup tournament.
So, while he was in town ... we asked who he thinks will take home the title. His response -- "USA." We asked if he was joking. He shot back -- "A big joke."
Dude, did Zlatan just talk smack?? Pretty ballsy for a guy who's team couldn't crack the top 32 ... then again, the Team USA coach would probably agree with him. GO USA!!!!

lmao he is ruthless i love this guy.
Rashida Jones uses face oil to achieve a flawless complexion, and is always happy for her make-up artist to take the lead.
The American actress is a regular at red carpet events and always sports a glowing complexion and tamed tresses thanks to her style team, Matin Maulawizada on make-up and hair stylist Lorenzo Diaz.
While 38-year-old Rashida generally channels a more understated look, her skin always looks fresh and dewy which Matin reveals is all down to her pre-make-up routine.
"She's really into oil, and I'm obsessed too. I massaged some on her face before applying primer and foundation," he divulged to People magazine.
For the recent TBS/TNT Upfront event in New York, Rashida rocked a side ponytail and a fresh-skinned look. She accessorised her Tanya Taylor skirt and top look with a slick of pink lipstick and matching blush.
"It was a morning event, so I wanted her to look casual. The blush is a really bright pink that I blended out.
"I explain what I'm doing, and she goes, 'That's great!' She's very confident," Matin said of his easy going client.
For her hair, Lorenzo adds that she is as equally laid back.
"It's effortless! Rashida wanted her hair out of the way, so we pulled it to the side into a low, loose ponytail.
"[It took] About an hour, because I blew her hair out, then set it with a curling iron and styled it," he added. And when Lorenzo gets Rashida in his styling chair he revealed the pair of them can't stop talking about food.
"We're both foodies, so we talked about our favourite restaurants," he smiled. "We both love [Burmese restaurant] Burma Superstar in Oakland."
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in New York City Monday, performing and hosting a master class in the school’s Tony Bennett Concert Hall.
Bennett opened the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in 2001 in his hometown of Astoria, Queens. Though he typically attends graduation, this year he is unable due to his tour schedule. So, instead, he brought his friend and collaborator Gaga with him to the last day of classes for something special.
Speaking with moderator Lester Holt of NBC, Bennett and Gaga talked about jazz music, The Great American Songbook, creativity and other subjects, fielding questions from members of the the 700-student audience.
The two then performed a couple classic American songs, with Bennett on "The Very Thought of You" and Gaga singing Cole Porter's "Every Time We Say Goodbye." They followed that by playfully serenading each other with the standard "I Can’t Give You Anything But Love," adding a cheek-to-cheek slow dance.
"When I first heard Gaga sing, my reaction was that she is going to be bigger than Elvis," said Bennett. "She is so bright and intelligent and she has it. In jazz you either got it, the syncopation, the rhythm or you don't, and when I heard Gaga I said she's got it!"
Gaga chimed in, talking about singing with Bennett — a relationship that began when the two performed at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit gala in 2011, and soon after the two duetted on "The Lady Is a Tramp" for Bennett’s "Duets II" album.
"When I am with Tony I feel like I am fifteen years old at home listening to Ella and Coltrane records," she said. "The way he sings is effortless and so prolific. It’s so liberating to be able to sing jazz, especially at this point in my career."
The event closed with student choirs performing a rendition of Tony Bennett’s "Smile" and Lady Gaga’s "Applause."
Gaga and Tony Bennett are currently collaborating on a jazz album planned for release later this year. Several musicians have perviously done master classes at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, including Billy Joel and Paul McCartney.
Prince William and Kate's little George, Twilight characters Bella and Jacob, and Game of Thrones's feisty Arya - they've all influenced new parents' baby name choices over the past year.
And now we can add Simon Cowell's son Eric and Disney's fictional Frozen character Elsa to the list.
The beautiful name Elsa has shot up to number 88 on the popular names list, a massive 243 places higher than last year, showing parents have been inspired by Disney's popular character.
Sarah Barrett, Managing Editor for BabyCentre, said: "Whilst the film's popular heroine is called Anna, Elsa offers a more unique name and is also a strong female role model. Elsa is the ice queen but she sees the error of her ways and is shown to be a sensitive, but strong and confident character. Just in the way the name Arya from Game of Thrones increased in popularity in 2013, films are hugely influential."
Disney UK's Vice President Anna Hill said the company were thrilled so many parents had been inspired by the movie.
"We're delighted that Elsa is a popular name for babies and it's lovely to hear that for many families, it is actually their siblings who have chosen it. We've been bowled over by the response to Frozen - it's now the fifth biggest film of all time and families are really connecting with Elsa's fight to overcome her fears and the powerful strength of the family bond which has helped her to achieve this."
Another example of movies influencing baby name choices is Wolverine. The name Logan, featured in the film, rose 33 places to number 14.
Celebrities are also continuing to inspire us. In the past, we've seen Kourtney Kardashian's Mason, Victoria and David Beckham's Harper and Gwen Stefani's Kingston influence mums and dads. This year it's Simon Cowell.
After the X Factor mogul and girlfriend Lauren Silverman named their son Eric in February 2014, the name shot 284 places up the popular names list to number 118. Simon chose the name after his father, Eric.
Interestingly, George has dropped down the chart as the little Prince approaches his first birthday. Now sitting at number
The data collected from more than 30,000 new parents is just for the first six months of the year and with plenty of celebrity babies due before December (Billie Faiers, Mila Kunis, Rachel Bilson etc), who knows how it will all change!
Another popularity list from BabyCenter (over 555,000 baby names)
"These are creative, strong character names that are giving moms some fresh, new baby-name options, especially Elsa," said Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global Editor in Chief. "We've seen Emma in the top 10 for quite some time now, and Elsa is a modern alternative that our moms are gravitating toward."
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen pop culture crazes spill over into baby name picks in recent years: The Hunger Games, Fifty Shades of Grey and even the reality show Duck Dynasty have all sparked trends.

It wasn't a great day for Cristiano Ronaldo on Monday.
His Portugal side were smashed 4-0 by Germany in their World Cup opener, and Ronaldo failed to exert his usual influence.
To add insult to injury, some are suggesting Germany coach Joachim "Jogi" Low may have picked his nose before shaking Ronaldo's hand after the game.
Low, it appears, has previous.
Ridiculous, we know. But you needed to see it.
T.I. and Iggy Azalea have proven to be quite the tag-team, so it only makes sense that the Grand Hustle CEO recruits his Australia-born homey to set-off his upcoming Paperwork LP.
On Monday (June 16) Tip dropped “No Mediocre,” the first single from his yet-to-be-released ninth solo album, and he brought his star artist, Iggy, along for the ride.
She posted this (now deleted) tweet today:
smh @ her coming at Tiny... or did she mean Iggy Aslayea? oop
Sophie Dalzell, a 20-year-old topless model in Manchester, England, skipped a court date on a charge of assaulting two police officers because she flew to Belgium to get breast augmentation surgery.
The January operation was the second time she has had surgery to make her breasts bigger.
When Dalzell, who has already racked up 11 convictions on various assault and vandalism charges, presented a letter from her plastic surgeon confirming she had the breast-enlargement surgery — if the magistrate couldn’t see for himself — the court let her go.
Now the so-called glamour model is refusing to perform a court-ordered 400 hours of community service because she says that picking up trash is “too hard and tiring.”
She says that her schedule consists of two work days per week, and is paid about $850 per photo shoot, “and the rest of the time I just chill out.” It’s not fair, she said, for the court to force her to clean up litter and rake leaves for no pay at all.
So she is simply refusing to do the community service because “I hate everything about it,” and “it’s a waste of a full day and it’s just too hard for me.”
Instead, Sophie Dalzell plans to spend the summer on the resort island of Ibiza, on vacation, and “deal with the consequences when I get back.”
She already fulfilled more than half of the 400 hours she was ordered to perform in 2012, for the drunken assault on two female police officers. It’s the final 180 hours where she is drawing the line.
Sophie says, “I haven’t done anything wrong,” and the courts are “just jealous” because she managed to escape the rural northwest England county of Cumbria where she grew up and has “done something with my life.”
who here has been arrested before, and for what?
James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, and Evan Peters are expected to return in 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' and it has been confirmed that younger versions of Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm will appear, along with Gambit, and possibly a younger Nightcrawler.
I'm still bugged by Halle Berry's Storm. Yes, that is my line in the sand where I'm liable to go irrational about the casting in a comic book movie. Nothing against Halle Berry, I don't even hold Catwoman against her, but she wasn't even close to Storm. So, let's start with Storm.
Who Hollywood probably wants: Zoe Saldana. Ooops, she's already in the MCU, DENIED.
Hollywood's second choice: Lupita Nyong'o. But she might be busy with the Star Wars movies.
Who I want: I've never seen Lupita's acting but apparently she can rock it. But this is a very important decision that must be considered carefully. Thoughts?
Who Hollywood Wants: Basically any notable young starlet who comes cheap.
Who I Want: Because I find the inbred nature of Hollywood hilarious, i.e. Scarlet Johannson in the MCU with her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds and his new wife Blake Lively in the DCU, I'll pick Leighton Meester because she used to be serious with Sebastian Stan of the MCU and this is FOX. With that...
Who Hollywood wants: who cares?
Who I want: Adam Brody, because he's married to Leighton Meester. He'll have to buff up though.
Who Hollywood and I want: I'm ok with either Taylor Kitsch - I enjoyed him as Gambit in Wolverine: Origins, or Channing Tatum, who might be too pricey.
Alan Cumming was surprisingly ok and that was out of the box casting so I got nothing.
Who do you want to see cast in these roles in the next X-Men movie?

SAM Worthington’s Deadline Gallipoli miniseries begins shooting in Adelaide tomorrow with a stellar cast including UK actors Charles Dance — best known as Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones — and Hugh Dancy, alongside Australian actors Ewen Leslie, Bryan Brown and Rachel Griffiths.
The four-hour TV miniseries co-produced by Worthington, tells the story of the Gallipoli campaign through the eyes of Australian war correspondents Charles Bean (Joel Jackson) and Keith Murdoch (Ewen Leslie), photographer Philip Schuler (Sam Worthington) and Britain’s Ellis Ashmead Bartlett (Hugh Dancy). Charles Dance arrives next week to play the British General Sir Ian Hamilton who heads the British command at Gallipoli. Worthington is not expected in Adelaide until the following week.
In rehearsal late last week Hugh Dancy, who is married to US actor Claire Danes, said he came into the role knowing relatively little about the Anzacs. In his coverage of the Gallipoli campaign, British journalist Bartlett wrote of the bravery of the Australian soldiers and is credited with starting the Anzac legend.
“I am interested because the focus of this in particular is the myth makers,” he said. “For better or for worse we mythologize things because they’re remarkable and they deserve to be remembered, and also because they’re such horrific events we can’t think of another way to respond to them.”
Dancy will be in South Australia until August but will fly home for a two-week break in July to see Danes, who is currently shooting a fourth season of the US terrorist thriller Homeland.
Winning the role of Charles Bean is a big break for NIDA graduate Joel Jackson, 22, a former musician from Western Australia who made a self test in remote Karratha using a camera on top of a crayfish crate after a day working in the mines.
Jackson has since read everything he can find about the Oxford-educated war historian C.E.W. Bean, including his diary, and has visited the Australian War Memorial in Canberra where Bean’s papers are held. He says the Anzac legend has helped Australians forge a sense of national identity by providing a common point of history and a story people can connect with.
“Anzac Day for me is the most special day of the year, always has been,” he says. “I grew up in Albany which is where they departed for Cairo and every year my grandfather would tell you the traditions of the Anzacs.”
Sydney-based actor Ewen Leslie has the job of playing Keith Murdoch, the war correspondent, publisher and father of Rupert Murdoch who smuggled out a letter critical of the British command. Leslie, a theatre actor and familiar face from TV shows like Love My Way and Redfern Now, said he had read what he could find about Sir Keith.
“I suppose you take as much stuff as you can and try to put together a picture of someone,” he said. “You bring parts of yourself to him and hopefully meet in the middle.”
Deadline Gallipoli, commissioned by Foxtel, is the third Gallipoli project to come to South Australia in less than a year following the ABC miniseries Anzac Girls and Russell Crowe’s blockbuster film The Water Diviner. The SA Government has invested $618,000 in Worthington’s project which will use the Adelaide Studios and locations including Maslins Beach which will double as Anzac Cove. It is expected to give a $6 million boost to the economy.
The writing team is drawn from some of the country’s premier scriptwriting talent, with Jacquelin Perske (Love My Way, Little Fish), Shaun Grant (Snowtown), Stuart Beattie (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Tomorrow, When The War Began) and Cate Shortland (The Slap, Somersault, Devil’s Playground) all signing on to help pen the four-part drama.
Deadline Gallipoli is scheduled to air on Foxtel’s Showcase channel next year to coincide with World War I centenary celebrations.

Talk about a realm reborn! Fans of Final Fantasy XIV who were upset about the game's controversial decision to exclude gay marriage need not worry any longer. Director and producer Naoki Yoshida confirmed the change during one of its live-streamed E3 developer talks that the game will introduce same-sex relationships in an upcoming patch.
The relevant part of the talk begins just shy of the 2:30:00 mark, when they field a question about same-sex relationships in the fictional world of Eorzea. (For a breakdown of some other gameplay elements discussed, check out Mike Fahey's post here).
Quoting from a translator here, Yoshida said that upon the arrival of the 2.4 patch, "people within Eorzea will be able to pledge their eternal love and or friendship in a ceremony of eternal bonding. And this will be open to people regardless of race, creed, and gender. Two players...if they want to be together, in Eorzea, they can—through this eternal bonding ceremony."
"We discussed it," Yoshida added, "and we realized: within Eorzea, why should there be restrictions on who pledges their love or friendship to each other? And so we decided to go this way."
The team is also considering things like "special mounts that only people who pledged their love and friendship can ride."
And with that matter settled, they started talking about the possibility of adding a dueling system.
Well there you have it. Now was that so hard, Nintendo?

Not every Housewives franchise can be as exciting as the ladies in Atlanta, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the reunion taping of The Real Housewives of New York City was drama free and Bravo execs are considering getting rid it to make room for new shows worth watching.
“The taping was beyond boring,” a source close to the show told Radar about the June 13 event. “Yes, everyone showed up and there were tears and fights, but not about anything that mattered at all. There just wasn't enough going on in the season to make anything special.”
Low ratings plagued this sleepy season, and the source told Radar that the reunion isn't going to offer any fireworks either, with the cast members Ramona, Aviva, Carole, Kristen, Sonja, LuAnn and Heather unable to drum up the drama.
“The show was ridiculous. Andy [Cohen] tried everything he could to get the ladies to be interesting, but they've run out of story lines. It was completely drama free.”
The source said the network is considering canceling the show.
“The Real Housewives of New York City is just a failing franchise now,” the source said. “The ratings are a bust and the women aren’t doing anything to help the show. Ramona had a lot of interesting things happening in her personal life but she made sure it didn’t make the show. Carole and Aviva tried to have a storyline, but even Aviva’s show absences didn’t help the ratings. There isn’t anything compelling with these women now.”
Not everyone is buying that Aviva Drescher's dad, George Teichner, has the magic touch with women. Aviva's co-star Heather Thomson live-tweeted her thoughts on the episode. She made clear that she does not believe at all that George had a threesome with former Miss USA Nana Meriwether.
In the episode, Aviva loudly told everyone at an event hosted by LuAnn de Lesseps that Nana may have had a threesome with her dad and his fiance, Dana Lavette Cody, not too long ago. Heather isn't buying it. She retweeted a fan's tweet that if Miss USA had a threesome with George, then she was born on Mars, and that the claim was "such total BS."
Miss USA Nana Meriwether long ago denied that she had any physical contact with George, much less a threesome with him and Cody. Two weeks after the scene was filmed, she told the NY Daily News that she actually met George at former housewife Jill Zarin's house but that nothing happened between them. She said that Bravo was simply “fishing for story lines.”
The NY Daily News article also reported that it was producers who arranged for Nana to come to LuAnn's luncheon.
Sonja Morgan encouraged rumors that she indeed slept with Carole Radziwill's ex-boyfriend, Russ Irwin of Aerosmith, while they were still together. Carole took to her blog to clarify a few things.
"The thing about rumors is that everyone believes something about them, even if they are completely unfounded," she wrote on her Bravo blog. "Did I believe Sonja was drunk in a bar one night in Los Angeles? Absolutely. Did I believe she and Russ, my ex-boyfriend, hooked up? Either while we were together or after? Nope. But Sonja sat in her hangover robe on that rooftop with her trademark 'dingbat' look and proclaimed that Russ did 'flirt with her' in St. Barth's. And that's all it takes to fuel a rumor."
After Kristen Taekman told her about what Sonja had said, Carole decided to confront Sonja.
"I asked her what any normal girl would ask, what the fuck?" she wrote. "Because where I'm from, women have each other's backs. They don't perpetuate gossip about their friends. Sonja denied that it happened but didn't apologize for letting Satako [the facialist] repeat it while she giggled."
But just to be sure, Carole wanted to talk to her ex. He too confirmed her suspicions that all of it was made up.
"Russ says he never banged Sonja and I believe him but hey, things happen. If that rumor is even partly true it says nothing about me and everything about Sonja. None of it good."
Scott Nevins may not be a household name yet, but he’s getting there. Best known for his work as a stand-up comedian and host to numerous events, benefits and television shows, Nevin’s brand of humor seems to be catching on.
Nevins can now be seen on The People’s Couch, which is based on a UK show called Googlebox.
“I received a call from someone in production [at Bravo TV] who asked if I had any groups of people that I watch TV with,” Nevins said. “I said I did and they were on their way over to watch The Real Housewives with me. After many Skype meetings, visits and interviews they asked us if we would like to take part in this experimental show. I was worried that we'd be super self-conscious and aware of the cameras, but Blake [McIver], Emerson [Collins] and I are close friends and well … we're not shy about our opinions. So when we did sit down to watch TV, we forgot that the cameras were there within two minutes.”
The three have been friends for years and frequently get into heated, yet contained, debates.
Nevins takes pride in surrounding himself with people and friends who nourish him as a person and performer and feels really lucky to get to work with two people he is so close to.
“I love those two so much,” Nevins said. “[I] can't believe that we get to share this experience with millions of people who tune in. I think people respond to our group because everyone has those one or two friends who they can let lose and be real with, the way we always are with one another. People see a bit of themselves in one or all of the different groups we have on the show. I'm fiercely proud to be a part of a TV program that features and celebrates such diversity.”
He’s also candid about what responsibilities the gay community has with bullying within their own community.
“I think you are going to find issues within any community - minority or otherwise,” Nevin’s said. “It’s the same as any social situation where people put up walls or act out because of insecurity. LGBTQ men and women spend most of their early lives being outcasts. Sometimes it can feel like high school with cliques, but again, only if you buy into it. Live your life the way you want and who cares about anyone else? My 86-year-old Aunt Grace (my best friend) always says, 'Why worry what other people think? Do they pay your rent?'"

Gather the grandchildren around your feet and spin them elaborate tales of what it was like in the long-ago past, otherwise known as the decade of the 2000s. Or, y'know, just let them tell you, since the 2000s ended only four years ago.
Nevertheless, VH1 is stirring up nostalgia for the era with Tuesday night's premiere of "I Love the 2000s." Because the fads and happenings highlighted in the show feel like only yesterday, we ventured back in time a bit further to pinpoint their pop-culture forebears.
This oscillating dumbbell is one of the decade's weirder inevitable thrift-shop finds. Let's just say that when you shake it, your hand imitates a movement that inspires endless dirty jokes. "Who came up with this, dude in prison?" cracks a VH1 comic in a preview for the show.
Retro relatives: The Thighmaster, hawked by "Three's Company" alum Suzanne Somers, was another piece of exercise equipment that made us giggle.
What 1939 was for great movies ("Wizard of Oz""Gone With the Wind"), poor pitiful 2003 was for sex tapes, with both Kim Kardashian's and Paris Hilton's, uh, cinematic efforts released into the wild. Though the tapes supposedly were leaked without the stars' knowledge, both videos served as springboards to reality-show fame.
Retro relative: Once upon a time, quaint Playboy was the only way to see a boldface name in the buff.
Texting existed in the 1990s, but it was in the 2000s that cell phones became widespread enough to really give us thumb cramps. Now we have a generation raised to use phones for every imaginable purpose —except actually speaking.
Retro relatives: In the 1990s, we chatted in a less-mobile fashion via AOL Instant Messenger and early online chatrooms. A/S/L?
On "Jersey Shore," the catchphrases were as addictive as the fashions were horrifying. The self-described guidos and guidettes, with their tanorexia, Ron-Ron Juice, and GTL (gym, tan, laundry) were the bee's knees of a very brief and greasy time in our lives.
Retro relative: "The Real World" ignited our fascination with regular people living their lives on camera, way back in 1992.
Bat-biting rocker Ozzy Osbourne took audiences into the personal side of his life with "The Osbournes," which ran from 2002 to 2005 and filmed the lives of Ozzy, wife Sharon, and kids Jack and Kelly. Despite the mansion and big money, they struck many viewers as surprisingly relatable: The siblings squabbled, the dogs pooped all over the house, and Ozzy threw a ham into the neighbors' yard. (OK, maybe we couldn't relate to that as much.) This crazy train was fun while it lasted.
Retro relatives: Tough one. Let's just say Ozzy and Sharon are no Ozzie and Harriet.
"I Love the 2000s" premieres Tuesday at 9 pm on VH1.
