  • Madonna has opened a new gym in Mexico City.

Hard Candy Fitness is being called a mega-gym; her business partner says: "She chose the graphics, colors, the machines. She has weighed in on the choreography of all the classes and given them a twist to make them more dynamic, more special and to better reflect her style." Her Madgesty is using Mexicans as guinea pigs, sorta, because the gym is being tested and fine-tuned South of the Border before it will expand to the United States and beyond. Soon the entire world will be able to have the kind of veins Dolce & Gabbana Photoshops away! [Digital Spy, Sky News]

I attended a baptism a few years back where several babies (and a couple of small children) were being baptized. One group included a teenaged mom, her mom, and her pregnant teen girlfriends. Her baby's name was "Baccardi." I've often wondered if Baccardi's little sister Sex on the Beach has been conceived yet.
