Helping to dispel the myth that most female athletes are lesbians, U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach married her teammate this past weekend in Hawaii. Abby and her wife Sarah Huffman both play for the Western New York Flash, a woman’s pro soccer team that draws about three thousand fans per game, or about twice that of the Florida Marlins. Women’s professional soccer faces an uphill battle in so much as women’s sports have always had a tougher time finding traction with a viewing audience. Also because nobody in this country gives a shit about soccer. The newly married couple are hoping that thoughts of sweaty teammates going down on each other in the locker room will help boost interest in their sport. It can’t hurt.
Lena Dunham milked a cow during an interview in the meat packing district. Lena’s really smart and completely self-aware so I assume she picked up on the irony. Maybe even the cow did as well, we’ll never know.

Lindsay Lohan and her mom made quite the scene pedaling around Manhattan like a regular old family. The Lohans figured out many advantages to bicycling. There’s no law against drinking and biking, when you fall asleep at the wheel, you don’t end up killing a bus full of school children, and when the narcs confiscate your rented bikes in a drug sting, who cares? Super villains adapt quickly.

Dutch model Sylvie van der Vaart announced earlier this year that she and her soccer star husband Rafael van der Vaart had separated, so she has naturally spent most of the year being photographed at the beach while wearing very well-thought-out bathing suits. Her latest adventure came this week at Miami Beach, which is the perfect place for a 35-year old mom to show off her killer body in hopes of attracting either a new wealthy boyfriend or 6,000 gay men to go shopping with. Either way, best of luck in all of your endeavors, Sylvie’s breasts.

Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger and his wife Avril Lavigne attended something called the Huading Awards in China on Monday, and I’m guessing the event honors outstanding achievement in making people physically ill any time they hear a specific music artist’s songs. But the big news for rock’s latest couple of the apocalypse is that Avril might be pregnant, because, according to the Daily Mail, the dress she wore to the awards is the type that most newly-pregnant women prefer. This rumor can’t be true, though, because it wasn’t followed by reports of everyone else on the planet trying to push Avril down a flight of stairs.

After their little Twitter feud last week, Jimmy Kimmel welcomed Kanye West on his show last night so they could clear the air about the rapper’s grievances with the talk show host’s decision to parody his recent interview with BBC One. For the most part, the interview went pretty well, but it basically came down to Kimmel apologizing for a harmless joke and then Kanye busting out several rants about the lack of privacy for celebrities, all in the name of them proving that this wasn’t a publicity stunt. All I know is that if this happened 20 years ago, Tupac would have shot Kimmel’s stammering ass. Get your shit together, Kanye.
