Vivek Oberoi Wedding Pics

Vivek Oberoi wedding pics, photos go viral on internet. Vivek Oberoi is hogging the limelight. He must be called the dulha number one in the festive season when millions of men and women tie the knot and start a new family life.

Bollywood superstar who is among the top paid Bollywood actors has tied the knot with his muse of years Priyanka Alva. The marriage seems to have been a private affair despite being so high profile in nature.

Vivek Oberoi is known more for his affair than his film. He dated for months the queen of Indian cinema Aishwarya Rai who later brutally broke his heart to settle down with Abhishek Bachchan whose father Amitabh is India’s most well known actor.

Abhishek Bachchan too is an actor but adman Parhalad Kakkar has just shed more light on his acting prowess than anyone else when he said, “Abhishek Bachchan has 17 flops in a row and is still going strong. He is unique and should be in the Guinness Book of World Records.”

Meanwhile the marriage pictures of Vivek Oberoi are among the highest searched items on the internet. This shows his popularity among his fans.

On the other hand his latest film Rakta Chritra is going strong on the box office amid controversies.

Jenn Sterger Pics

Brett Favre pictures are decidedly X-rated today. The Brett Favre pics to Jenn Sterger allegedly back up Deadspin's claims that he made creepy advances towards the former Jets
reporter. Of course, viewers only have Deadspin's word that the penis photos in their new video are of Favre. Thus far, Deadspin has not been a source that people feel comfortable in trusting, especially since they never got Sterger's permission for this. Nevertheless, if today's pics are full frontal Brett Favre pictures sent to Jenn Sterger, then the story may have actual life.

Deadspin claimed two months ago that Favre made advances on Sterger, by sending voice messages and photos of his genitals. Since their claims came out right as the Favre retirement watch was heating up, and since Sterger never went on the record, few took it that seriously for very long.

Today, the alleged pics that Jenn Sterger got of Brett Favre's penis have leaked on Deadspin - probably without her consent once again. Deadspin posted a 2+ minute video today, featuring audio of Favre's alleged voice messages. At one point, it even shows pictures of a human penis, which allegedly belongs to Favre.

Of course, one can't prove if the photos are actually of Favre's genitals. But if they are, then he would join the long list of athletes who have been exposed online. Players like Greg Oden and Brandon Spikes have been caught with their pants down on the Internet, figuring that the images would stay with them.

Although Jenn Sterger got these pics, it doesn't appear that she gave them to Deadspin, however. The site claims that a "third party" received the Brett Favre pictures, along with the audio clips. If she didn't leak them, then it stands to wonder how someone else got them and gave them to Deadspin.

Sterger was on the fence on whether to go public before, which may explain why she kept the pics to begin with. Someone could have already gotten access by then, and saved their release for this week in particular, since Favre is facing the Jets on Monday night.

Dorothy Dandridge

When I think of classic films, my mind often wanders to my own favorites: Auntie Mame, with the indomitable Rosalind Russell; Carmen Jones, starring Ms. Dorothy Dandridge; and Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn.

For me, a classic film is one that was made in the early decades of the 20th century. Then, again, it’s because my mother exposed me to them from a young age. I was named after Kim Novak, after all.

Nowadays, films released in the 1980s are considered classic. Working Girl comes to mind. To me, that’s a classic. A woman claws her way to the top, while looking hot. But putting a microscope on the 1987 version of Wall Street, I’m hard pressed to find a classic film.

In that film, Michael Douglas gives a rousing performance as Gordon Gekko, a ruthless takeover man full of golden nuggets like “Greed is good” and “Money never sleeps, kid.” It is Douglas’ performance that most people remember. Other than that, the film appeared dull to me. The acting is sub-par. Charlie Sheen was still wet behind the ears in his performance as Bud Fox and Darryl Hannah’s Darien is completely annoying.

Yet, I’m sure it makes total sense that director Oliver Stone would make yet another Wall Street film, because America was just scrambling for another one in these times of economic hardship. In this one, called Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (catchy title, huh?), Stone tackles the near collapse of the financial system and answers a few of the questions fans of the first film had, all in one tight little movie.

The Bud Fox-esque character is now named Jake Moore (played by Shia LeBeouf), a stockbroker who becomes Gekko’s new puppet. Gekko uses Jake to get to his daughter, Winnie (Carey Mulligan), whom we didn’t know he even had in the first film.

In The Sequel, screen-writers Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff, with characters by Stone and Stanley Weiser, create a world of chaos and take a hard look at the state of the economy which my generation, the Millennials, now have the task of dealing with, and turns our minds to the state of the economy in real life.

The prospects for the new generation in the job, real estate and financial markets have dwindled considerably compared to those of our parents. And, just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, the same people who helped get the country into its dire economic state were rewarded with a bailout.

But, like the first film, we can’t just point the finger at Wall Street, without pointing fingers at ourselves. We are the ones who secured loans we couldn’t pay back for things we couldn’t afford, like gigantic houses and luxury cars.

Loeb and company have a somewhat solid film in that they address the financial climate of today, making the film topical. But, there isn’t much of a plot. The most I could say about this plot is that Gordon Gekko gets out of jail, writes a book, tries to get close to his daughter and makes a triumphant come-back, the sub plot being the financial crisis.

The rest is a little too neat. Jake and Winnie have a little dust-up but there’s no question that they will work it out. Josh Brolin’s Bretton James is a scoundrel and he gets his comeuppance, because, why wouldn’t director Stone have the new villain in the latest version of Wall Street get his just reward?

Other actors making appearances in Money Never Sleeps include Sheen’s Bud Fox, who shows that he’s better than ever after saving Bluestar Airport and changing it into a private jet company that he’s sold for millions upon millions of dollars. Eli Wallach is still alive and kicking as Jules Steinhardt, Bretton’s only boss and mentor. Wallach’s Jules is a bit of a nut case, with his little bird noises, but the old man can’t be counted out just yet.

Susan Sarandon gets too minimal an appearance as Jake’s mother and the sole representation of the real estate brokers who made a good living flipping houses until the housing bubble burst and she’s left to stop bleeding her son dry for money and get a “real job”– her words, not mine.

Fans of Michael Douglas’ Gekko in the first Wall Street will consider themselves treated to more fun with Gekko in Money Never Sleeps.

Those who are not fans should wait for the DVD, because it’s more indicative of the value of the film. You may not want to spend that hard earned $10-plus on this one.

Lisa Rinna

As we previously reported, Rinna and hubby Harry Hamlin were about to go live on "Today" when their phone rang and they learned someone had broken into their Belle Gray boutique in Sherman Oaks. The thief/thieves apparently made off with clothes and other stuff.

The alarm went off at around 7 AM PT.

No suspects, but be on the lookout for a possible male suspect wearing a really stylish dress.

Breast Cancer Awareness

October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM)—a great opportunity to learn more about breast cancer and steps you can take to prevent this disease.

Second to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. It is the main cause of cancer death in Hispanic women, and is the second most common cause of cancer death in white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native women.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that in 2006 (the most recent year numbers are available), 191,410 women were diagnosed with the disease and 40,820 women died from it.

Some risk factors for breast cancer include being female, age (higher risk for women age 60 and older), personal history of breast cancer, family history of breast cancer and the breast cancer genes—an “alteration” in one of two genes that are important for regulation breast cell growth.

Fortunately, there are lifestyle choices you can make to live a healthier life and to help reduce your breast cancer risk. They include:

  • Decreasing your daily fat intake, especially saturated or hydrogenated fats. Eat leaner meats and limit red meat.
  • Increasing fiber in your diet.
  • Eating fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Limiting alcohol.
  • Staying active. The U.S. Surgeon General suggests engaging in a moderate amount of physical activity (such as taking a brisk, 30-minute walk) on most days of the week.
  • Avoiding smoking.

It is important for women to practice good breast health and it is suggested that women obtain regular mammography screening starting at the age of 40, obtain annual clinical breast exams, perform monthly breast self-exams, and obtain a risk assessment from a physician.
