Olympic gymnast GABBY DOUGLAS has been added to the judging panel for the upcoming Miss America pageant on Sep 11.
Pageant officials say the Fierce Five star will join musician and Disney Channel actress LAURA MARANO (from "Austin & Ally"), NBA team owner and businessman MARK CUBAN, actress SARA FOSTER, singer-songwriter COLE SWINDELL and former Miss America SHARLENE WELLS HAWKES on the panel.
ALY RAISMAN plans to indulge in some serious retail therapy now that the pressure of the Summer Games is over. The gymnast tells Us Weekly she loves hitting up Saks and Bloomingdales and adores shopping with NASTIA LIUKIN, but admits she can be "a little dangerous" in the stores.
Aly is quite proud of the $10-thousand dollar prize she received from Bridgestone and is donating it to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in honor of her late grandmother. (Lee)
Food and Nutrition:
Hey guys! Put down that pizza and go eat a damn salad! New research says women think men smell better when they eat a diet heavy on the fruits and veggies. According to Popular Science,guys who ate a low-carb diet "produced a floral, fruity, sweet and medicinal" sweat, that the ladies liked. Guys eating lots of carbs had a less pleasant body odor, as far as women were concerned. (Bartha)
Talk about too much fiber! A man in India, who's 42, went to the hospital complaining of stomach pain. Doctors did a scan and saw a very large mass they assumed was cancer. After an endoscopy, where they put a camera down your throat into your stomach, they found the man had 40 knives in him! He told the doctors that he felt like eating them and enjoyed the taste. Doctor JITINDER MALHOTRA called the removal the "most dreadful surgery." The man, however, is expected to be fine. (Myers)
