Becks Goes Out Like a Champ
A couple of weeks ago we learned the bummer news that David Beckham is leaving the LA Galaxy soccer team. At the time, it was announced that the 2012 MLS Championship game — win or lose — would be his last game as a Galaxian. Over the weekend, the Galaxy took on the Houston Dynamo at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA and won by a score of 3-1. This year’s MLS Championship title is the second in a row for the Galaxy … and proved to be the perfect high note for Becks to end his time here in LA as a professional soccer player.

I Still... Cannot.
For those of you who joined me in my gush-fest over Marion Cotillard‘s one year-old baby boy the other day, we have an update. As unbelievably picture-perfect as little Marcel appeared to be, I think it’s safe to say that he’s absolutely real. Like, this is a real baby… with ginormous blonde curls and and a perfectly round face, and like, rays of sunshine bursting from his body. It’s madness! Y’all know I love to obsess over Marion, but we’ll give her a little break and spend some time marveling at Marcel. Peep the gallery for more! Le père de Marcel was competing again, and this time poppa Guillame won a show jumping prize– hence the look of total excitement from Marion in that one pic, lol. Awesomeness!

The End of an Era is Near
Boo. It’s the sad news that Los Angeles soccer fans have been dreading is finally nigh. David Beckham has announced that he will leave the LA Galaxy soccer team at the completion of the MLS Cup championship. As you may know, Becks moved his entire family to LA back in 2007 to play professional soccer for the LA Galaxy and he enjoyed a very successful career here. Sadly, it sounds like Becks‘s career is coming to an end and, therefore, it is time for Becks to plan his exit. More »
Meet This Week's Hot-Person-Who-I-Didn't-Know-I-Was-Into-Until-Recently!
So, this week was insaaaane! After spending a couple of days with family in NYC during Hurricane Sandy, the love of my life stumbled across his uncle’s Insanity DVDs. Don’t front like y’all haven’t seen the commercials, lol! The Insanity workout is sweeping the nation and I just completed my fist week of the program. It is… um… insane. Trust me, I’ve tried to find other words but there are no words to describe what personal trainer Shaun T has come up with. Which brings up to the real issue at hand. Shaun T (who totally used to be a backup dancer for Mariah Carey) is hot, and he needs to stop flirting with me during the suicide drills because it’s getting awkward. LMAO. No, but seriously. Working out is no joke! But it’s gotta be done.. especially when you realize that every time Trent posts a half-marathon story, you’re commenting ‘Congratulations‘ with one hand and eating a brownie sundae with the other. So between Trent (and that pic of Britney Spears from the summer… and that Rashida Jones photo shoot) I knew something had to be done. And, luckily, I have a hot guy helping me through it. The hot guy is Shaun T, née Shaun Thompson. The love of my life is hot too but this post isn’t about him. Shouts-out, though. Now, peep the gallery to experience the insanity that is Shaun T (and his abs), and click inside to learn more about this week’s Hot-Person-Who-I-Didn’t-Know-I-Was-Into-Until-Recently!

Who would’ve thought that the Pepsi NFL site could be a sweet spot for new music? Apparently, Pepsi teamed up with the National Football League a while back and started hitting up some amazing artists for new music. Kelly Clarkson, Kid Rock, Ice Cube, Travie McCoy, and soon-to-be new papa Wiz Khalifa have all contributed to the campaign. Now they’re being joined by Lenny Kravitz (le sigh) and Aerosmith, both of whom composed new songs for the Jets and the New England Patriots, respectively. Both songs are pretty rockin’ and they’re inside! Checkie out!

He's Also Been Banned For Life
Back in August we got word that the USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) was preparing to strip Lance Armstrong of his Tour de France titles and impose a lifetime ban on him, following an investigation into the famed cyclist’s use of performance-enhancing drugs. Lance had discontinued his fight against the USADA but also maintained his innocence and claimed that they could not strip him of his wins. However, as of today, the International Cycling Union has confirmed that Lance is, indeed, being stripped of his titles. Click inside to learn more.

The TV Guide
Last night the Detroit Tigers defeated the NY Yankees by a score of 8-1 in a clean sweep of the 2012 American League Championship Series, clearing the way for the team to go straight to the World Series Championship. My BFF Sarah (who is the BIGGEST Tigers fan alive) and I were able to watch the Tigers cream the Yankees in person last night. Because of the rain delay, the game that was supposed to be played on Wednesday night was pushed back to last night … giving me an opportunity to see the game in person. I’m not a big sports fan but last night’s win felt pretty fantastic to me. More »

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and with a single photo, Beyoncé lets us all know that she will play the Super Bowl gig … check it out below. More »

This Girl Is On Fire!
It’s a really good time to be Gabby Douglas. The 16 year-old Olympic gold medalist is everywhere now and she absolutely deserves it.

It sounds like another dream come true for this hard-working girl, which is awesome! Click inside fore more.
