Maxim-um Mandira

Is that really 'Mandira Bedi'?

I have my doubts, and Maxim, which has been quoted as the source for these hot pictures of the Bedi girl in both Hindustan Times and at India FM, is not exactly the most credible of magazines. Maxim has earlier been in the middle of storms where it has been accused of publishing pictures which were not completely authentic.

Mandira Bedi is currently in the midst of a small controversy for a tattoo on her back which says, 'Ek Onkar', the Sikh religious symbol. Mandira's back, flashing the Ek Onkar tattoo was recently in public view as Cricket's first lady sashayed down a ramp recently.

When Prince Harry kissed Chelsy

Guess,where Prince Harry is holidaying? None other than the West Indies. The prince is holidaying in the Carribean with girlfriend Chelsy Davvy.

Here are some cute pictures from the England-Australia match in Antigua, where Prince Harry and his girlfriend got cute and romantic. "Chelsy looked gorgeous, and Prince Harry was all over her, throughout the match", remarked a fellow viewer.

Yuvraj & Kim getting married?

The rumours are doing the round again - Sources say that besides Salman & Katrina, cricketer Yuvraj Singh and actress Kim Sharma may take the matrimonial plunge later this month. Though Kim Sharma denies the news of her marriage to Yuvraj, even going to the length of saying that Yuvraj is hooked up with someone else. But it's hard to believe, with the number of times the two have been spotted together at various hotspot across the world.
I had myself ran into Yuvraj and Kim entering a 5 star hotel in New Delhi ( if i remember clearly, it was The Grand ) just as we were making our exit after a dinner buffet, and the time was not exactly early - it was well beyond midnight. This was a year back, and since then, they have been in news almost every time the Indian team is taking a break from cricket.

Kim had once got into a famous brawl with fellow actress Shamita Shetty, as the Shetty babe was apparently trying to get too close to Yuvraj, Kim's date for the evening.

A Homage to Shane Warne

This is a little late in the day, but it's so damn funny and interestingly written that it deserves to be culled out of the archives and presented here:
Source: Top Aussie Guide on Geocities

Shane Warne is a top Aussie. He is also a massive pisstank yobbo with a beer-gut who dyes his hair blonde and drives a red convertible. Warney has done some bad things. He once got paid 100 grand by Nicabate to give up durries for a year but he lit up heaps when he was pissed. Then he took money from some Indian bookmakers for pre-match information. He once smashed a camera cause a kiddy took a photo of his beer gut. Then he got toey on the phone and dirty-talked an English girly who wasn't his wife. However, all Australians agree that Warney can be excused for doing these things cause he spin bowls like a genius and makes England look completely shithouse. Warney could drink all our beer and then spew on our carpet and we wouldn't care as long as he keeps taking wickets.
Warney is a top Aussie.

Warnie, the genius and maverick will be missed. He gave more than just the spin to cricket - he added some much needed colour to the game. Freddie is showing some sparks, let's see if he can do more Warnies in the future.

Kinky Warnie

Just a funny picture. Cricket will definitely miss Shane Warne - one of those guys who added some colour to the game, which is increasingly getting corporatised and boring.
