ESPN "The Body" Issue Coming Out Friday!

Interesting ... according to "Fanhouse" The U.S. Open has fined Serena Williams $10,000 for her tirade directed at a line judge at the end of a semifinal loss to Kim Clijsters. It's the maximum on-site fine a Grand Slam tennis tournament can issue for unsportsmanlike conduct. The U.S. Open said the Grand Slam Committee Administrator has opened an investigation to determine whether Williams' behavior should be considered a "major offense," which can lead to additional penalties. Williams is also being docked $500 for racket abuse.

Fast forwarard ....ESPN the Magazine is coming out with 'The Body' issue which is set to hit newstands this Friday, October 9.


The magazine will feature famous body conscious athletes in the nude on the cover and inside the pages (not totally nude -- but let's say "bared") they will be strategically covering up their most intimate parts. And, Serena Williams is on one of the covers. Personally, I'm not necessarily happy with her right now. She really showed a bad side of herself in a tennis game; where sportsmanship, dress, rules and etiquette are very, very big.

At any rate, there will be six total issues with the first three covers featuring mixed martial artist Gina Carano, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards and triathlete Sarah Reinertsen, the first female amputee to complete the grueling Ironman Triathlon. On a personal note, would love to see him do his winning back flip dressed like this : )

The next three you will see Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, tennis star Serena Williams and the final one with Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard . CHECK OUT A SLIDESHOW OF THE COVERS.

Rumor has it that IndyCar racing stunner, Danica Patrick, will appear inside the magazine.
With that being said, PopCrunch has the Top 50 hottest female athletes of all time -- RIGHT HERE!

Lot's of Celebrities Wear Them, Why Shouldn't You? Talkin' bout shapewear.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Alba say they have used one. "They" whoever "they" are; say that Willaim Shatner wears one for his back. (He says he did when he got hurt years ago). Supposedly a certain male movie star wore one sewn in his tux for his wedding day. And who could forget Hugh Grant's physique and enjoyment of wearing one in the movie Bridget Jones's Diary ?

Yep, talkin' 'bout shapewear. Gone are the days of "control panties" those thick uncomfortable garments that dug into your flesh and actually made sitting down painful. Now days you can find underwear that helps to even out the lumps and bumps without compromising on sex appeal and comfort.

You may be liberated enough to say and feel that women should be natural and shouldn't have to control or shape their bodies; but, no matter how you say it, or how many people listen, the truth stares back at you when you put on a pair of the skinny jeans, high waisted jeans and penicil skirts that are out this season.

The waist is back in fashion, and so are curves. Think of shapewear as comfy underwear that looks great and makes you feel good. It also helps you make a fashion statement : )
