Adam Carolla thinks women aren’t funny but no one is laughing

Funnyman may just be a sexist

In an interview with the New York Post,  Adam Carolla said that he thinks female comedy writers are the least funniest form of comedian. This comment immediately made Adam Carolla one of the funniest people this week, but everyone is laughing at him, not with.

During promoting his new book Not Taco Bell Material, Adam Carolla said to the Post:

“They make you hire a certain number of chicks, and they’re always the least funny on the writing staff. The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks. If my daughter has a mediocre sense of humor, I’m just gonna tell her, “Be a staff writer for a sitcom. Because they’ll have to hire you, they can’t really fire you, and you don’t have to produce that much. It’ll be awesome.”…I don’t care.”

Carolla added:

When you’re picking a basketball team, you’ll take the brother over the guy with the yarmulke. Why? Because you’re playing the odds. When it comes to comedy, of course there’s Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin — super-funny chicks. But if you’re playing the odds? No. If Joy Behar or Sherri Shepherd was a dude, they’d be off TV. They’re not funny enough for dudes. What if Roseanne Barr was a dude? Think we’d know who she was? Honestly.”

Adam Carolla initially gained notoriety for his stint on the radio show Loveline with Dr. Drew, known well for his current show Celebrity Rehab. Carolla also garnered much popularity with The Man Show, which as its title suggests was dedicated to all things manly, hairy and drunk.

But, give in his track record, it’s no surprise that the man whom ended his show with Juggies on Trampolines.

To prove Adam Carolla dead wrong check Tina Fey in the 2010 Emmy’s opening skit.

Nik Wallenda: Niagara Falls tightrope walk to happen tonight

Tightrope walk spans over 1,500 feet

The Niagara Falls tightrope walk is slated to happen tonight with Nik Wallenda, 33, part of the famous Flying Wallends family, but he admits is nervous for this historic attempt.

During a news conference Thursday Wallenda stated of the Niagara Falls tightrope walk, “It’s more anticipation and eagerness, but it’s all coming down to the wire, no pun intended,”

The tightrope that Wallenda will use is only two inches and will be stung across 1,800, sitting 150 feet about Niagara Falls.

Wallenda is set to begin the 45-minute stunt at 10 p.m. EDT. ABC will air the Niagara Falls tightrope walk with a 45 second delay; Billions of viewers internationally are expected to tune in.

ABC stated that for it is to air the walk, then Wallenda must wear a tether to prevent him from plummeting the 150 feet into the raging falls below during a primetime event.

The station’s Senior Vice President for Content Development James Goldston said, “We just wanted it to be an exciting, family-friendly occasion.” He did not that Wallenda wasn’t please with the decision.

“I’m wearing a tether because they’re making me wear a tether,” stated Wallenda during a Canadian press conference Wednesday.

Karl Wallenda, Nik’s great-grandfather, whom fell to his death in 1978 during a tightrope act in Puerto Rico, claimed that walking with safety gear did nothing to ease fear before a stunting, adding that it actually made him more nervous.

There has been a ban on attempting a Niagara Falls tightrope walk, but Wallenda petitioned both the U.S. and Canada for two years in hopes of the stunt coming to fruition.

Kim Kardashian wants to freeze her eggs and nude Twitter rumors circulate

Waiting for the perfect man

Kim Kardashian has been making quite a stir in media lately. Kardashian is currently making headlines for her comment about being willing to freeze her eggs until she finds the right man to father her children.

The Belfast Telegraph reports that Kim Kardashian, now 31-years-old, had previously thought that she would have been married with kids by the time she turned 30, but the reality TV star has no revamped her priorities. .

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Kim Kardashian stated, “I’d like to have a family, but I don’t want a child before I’m 35. If I’m single, then I can adopt or freeze my eggs.”

She did marry Kris Humphries, power forward for the New Jersey Nets, back in August of last year, but the marriage only lasted 72 hours with the couple filing for divorce on Oct. 31 of the same year.

“I learned to slow down a little bit in my romantic relationships from the divorce. It has been very hard to cope with it in front of the cameras, but I took a break of four months,” Kim Kardashian added in the Vanity Fair interview, “I went to stay at my mother’s house and I reflected a lot. I’ve read lot of lies, like that I earned $20 million from my marriage.”

A supposed photo of Kim Kardashian has also been making its way around the Internet. The photo pictures the backside of a vivacious tan brunette woman, sitting naked in a bed eating. The photo was uploaded to Kim’s current boyfriend’s, Kanye West, Twitter account earlier this week.

Both Kim Kardashian and Kanye deny that had anything to do with the photo, and Kanye West’s people claim that the rapper’s Twitter account must have been hacked.

Former adult film star Amia Miley has stepped forward, stating that the nude photo is here and not Kim Kardashian.

“I took the photo, like, a couple years ago . . . in London,” Miley told TMZ. “Not Kanye West’s hotel room.”

Miley stated that if you look at the photo closely, two small former piercing can been seen on the lower part of her back, adding that Kim doesn’t have this area pierced and never has.

Miley even lifted her shirt for TMZ to prove that she did in fact have the piercings at one time, and when asked about how the photo came about, she shrugged, stating, “That’s how I like to eat breakfast.”

Miley left the adult film business sometime ago and claims that the photo has no ruined any hopes she has of furthering dreams of a future career.

“Since I quit doing adult [films] I was planning on becoming a school teacher,” Miley said. “Now that this photo has leaked, my dreams are over.”

Apple reinvents user experience with iOS 6

Your favorite app is now integrated

Apple is planning on revamping its iOS software. At the WWDC, Apple heads highlighted the top features that will soon be available for the iPhone and iPad.

“Only Apple can make such amazing hardware, software, and services,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said on stage at the conference. “These products can change the world.”

Apple has parted ways with Google for iOS 6, favoring their own Map app. The new Map app has a similar interface to Google’s, but Apple has taken travel to an entirely new level. The new Map app offers both 3-D and fly-over views of cities. The fly-over views are perhaps one of the most impressive and beautiful experiences to ever reach a phone of tablet, given their exquisite detail and effortless interface. It’s literally a birds-eye view in the palm of your hand.

But, Apple didn’t stop with the visuals. The company as also developed turn-by-turn navigation, so Siri can truly become your trusted co-pilot. Siri also had a little education thrown her way with the ability to answer more questions and help set reservations or buy movie tickets.

With the new software update, Facebook also becomes a staple of the iPhone and iPad. No longer will Apple users need to download the Facebook app, but rather, it will be fully integrated into the phone. This new function will let users see all of their Facebook friends in your phone or tablet’s contact list, allowing them to message and “poke” them with ease.

Also, for all of those who enjoy video calling, the new update allows users to use video chat via cellular networks and not just through WiFi.

There is also a new feature called “Do Not Disturb,” which will block unwanted calls and text messages during certain hours.

Apple will release iOS 6 this fall with over 200 new features.

Google map app gets dumped too

The MacBook Pro at the WWDC received a total transformation from the original version. The new laptop promise a battery like of nearly seven hours, weighs less than 4.5 pounds and is as thin and elegant as the MacBook Air. The redesigned MacBook Pro also features a super-high-resolution display- the same on the iPhone or iPad.

“The products we make combined with the apps that you create, can fundamentally change the world,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook near the end of the keynote. “Really, I can’t think of a better reason to get up in the morning.”

During the WWDC, Apple pointed out that the screen has a display of 1080i; in fact, the resolution is so sharp that Apple had to revamp its OSX.

Prices for the new Mac start at @2,199 for a 2.3 GHZ quad-core i7 CPU and 256GB of memory on the flash SSD. The re-engineered MacBook Pro is available in stores today

WWDC also showed the world OS X Mountain Lion, which will be available in July for $19.99. The new OS has over 200 new features, including iCloud integration, Power Nap and iMessage, which will replace iChat.

The new iOS 6 also received a few tweaks reports execs at the WWDC. Siri will be added into the update and available on the third-generation iPad. Apple also dumped Google’s map app in favor of their own. The new map app allows users to turn-by-turn driving and walking directions.

“Google was already dealing a nicer version of maps to Android than it was to iOS — a good reason for buyers to pick Android — so Apple [did this] to compensate for that as well as to not make themselves vulnerable to Google’s whim,” analysts Erza Gottheil said.

There is also a new function called “Do Not Disturb,” which lets users block phone calls during certain hours of the day.

This year’s WWDC showed the world Apple’s newly designed MacBook pro. WWDC also introduced the work to OS X Mountain Lion and iOS 6.

Klan highway: Ku Klux Klan wants to adopt

Georgia chapter wants to clean up a roadway

The Klan highway could very soon become a reality. A Georgia-based chapter of the Ku Klux Klan wants to adopt a stretch of road. The KKK’s application is making transportation officials leery though.

The intended Klan highway is a small portion of route 515 in the Appalachian Mountains.

“All we want to do is adopt a highway. We’re not doing it for publicity. We’re doing it to keep the mountains beautiful. People throwing trash out on the side of the road … that ain’t right, stated April Chambers, chapter secretary”

In 1997, a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan petitioned to adopt part of a highway in Missouri. Their initial application was denied, but the Klan took the case to court, eventually winning out. However, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear that case. The federal appeals court that did handle the case said that denying the group to adopt and asking for its membership requirements to be changed would encroach on their First Amendment rights.

“We’re not racists… We just want to be with white people. If that’s a crime, then I don’t know. It’s all right to be black and Latino and proud, but you can’t be white and proud. I don’t understand it. I don’t see why we can’t (adopt the stretch of highway),” Chambers added. “Would it be any different if it was the Black Panthers or something? Someone always has some kind of race card.”

Georgia State Representative Tyrone Brooks stated that if the Klan highway receives a green light, then the state should simply consider ending the program entirely.

Harley Hanson, known as the Exalted Cyclops of the Union County Klan, stated that the group only wants to help the community by creating the Klan highway.

“Our intentions are to keep the road clean,” Hanson told Reuters. “We love our race. We don’t promote violence.”

Do you think the KKK should be allowed to adopt part of the road?

Bristol Palin to star in her own reality TV show

Lifetime will air ten episodes

Bristol Palin will soon star in her own reality show entitled Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp. The Lifetime series will follow the daughter of Sarah Palin in her day-to-day life.

The show will also feature her 3-year-old son Tripp, thus the title of the show. The series promises to present Bristol Palin as a good mother. Bristol recently appeared on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

However, Bristol isn’t worried about how she will come off to viewers. In an interview on Good Morning America she stated:

“I think I have tough skin and I know that God is on my side and my faith is everything to me. It’s just the root of my life and my family’s life and I think it will do well,” Bristol Palin stated. “And when people are talking poorly about me, I think it just gives me more motivation to want to do more and want to speak up even louder and they’re just not doing themselves well by doing that.

In a clip from Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp, that has been circulating on YouTube, a man tells Bristol Palin her mom is a “whore.” Bristol eloquently responds that the man “homosexual.”

“I chose to confront him and see what the real problem was,” Bristol said on Good Morning America. “I’m excited for viewers to see the real me in that, because I’m sitting there all tough and shaking and I’m acting tough. And instantly when it’s over, it’s like, ‘OK, there’s the real Bristol,’ because I am calling my boyfriend, I’m calling my mom. ‘Ah, get me out of here.’ People are going to see the real Bristol in this show.”

Have a look below at Bristol standing her own to the heckler.
