Did you know this lady has the biggest breast?

28-year-old Sheyla Hershey of Brazil is the proud owner of the world's largest breasts -- with a staggering, life-threatening, and unfortunately-named bra size of 38KKK.

n May, ABC News reported that Hershey's breasts were 34 FFF after eight surgeries and one gallon of silicone. But she wasn't done yet. On her way to achieving her dream, she encountered certain roadblocks, like Texas law. The state limits the amount of silicone that one person put in their body because the implants could kill her. So she headed to Brazil, which has no such restrictions, and walked away with the breasts of her dreams.

Did you know the Greatest radio talk show host?

1. Rush Limbaugh
started his radio career at 16 working for a hometown radio station. In 1971, he worked for a short time at KQV in Pittsburgh under the name "Jeff Christie". During the 1970s, Limbaugh worked at various stations including KUDL/Kansas City (as Jeff Christie) and KMBZ under his own name.

National Syndication: Began August 1, 1988 and now heard on over 600 stations. His audience is now more than 20 million people each week.

2. Howard Stern

National Syndication: The Howard Stern Show debuted in Philadelphia in 1986 and went on to air in markets across the United States, mostly on radio stations owned by Infinity Broadcasting (Now CBS Radio)

Stern began broadcasting his show on SIRIUS Satellite Radio January 9, 2006. His $500 million dollar deal (+ stock bonuses) make Stern the highest paid radio personality in the U.S.

Claim To More Fame: In 2000 he was #30 on the Forbes Power List.

3. Don Imus

Radio: Imus began as a DJ in 1968 in California, where he worked at KUTY, Palmdale. He worked at both KJOY in Stockton in and KXOA, Sacramento in 1969.

In 1970, Imus worked at WGAR, Cleveland.

He arrived in New York to host WNBC's morning show in 1971 and worked at WNBC until 1977.

After a short 1978 stint in Cleveland, Ohio, he returned to New York City in 1979.

In 1988, WNBC was renamed WFAN. In 1996, the Imus program began simulcasting on MSNBC.

On April 11, 2007, the Imus simulcast was removed from MSNBC and on April 12, 2007, CBS Radio announced it would cease to broadcast his daily show. A week earlier, the original shock-jock made what many considered a racially-charged remark about the Rutgers women basketball team and the ensuring criticism built into such a firestorm that black leaders successfully brought pressure to bear on his employers to have him removed from the air.

On August 14, 2007, Imus settled a contract lawsuit against CBS reportedly for $20 million dollars.

On November 1, 2007, it was announced Imus signed a new contract with Citadel Broadcasting and began airing his show from WABC-AM/New York on December 3, 2007.

4. Larry King

He is recognized in the United States as one of the premier broadcast interviewers. King has conducted some 40,000 interviews with politicians, athletes, entertainers, and other newsmakers. He has won an Emmy Award, two Peabody Awards, and ten Cable ACE Awards.

King began as a local Florida journalist and radio interviewer in the 1950s and '60s. He became prominent as an all-night national radio broadcaster starting in 1978, and then began hosting the nightly interview TV program Larry King Live on CNN, which started in 1985.

On the Larry King Live show, King hosts guests from a broad range of topics. This includes controversial figures of UFO conspiracy theories and alleged psychics. One notable guest is Sylvia Browne, who in 2005 told the Newsweek magazine that King, a believer in the paranormal, asks her to do private psychic readings.[8]

Unlike many interviewers, King has a direct, non-confrontational approach. His interview style is characteristically frank, but with occasional bursts of irreverence and humor. His approach attracts some guests who would not otherwise appear. King, who is known for his general lack of pre-interview preparation, once bragged that he never pre-reads the books of authors who appear on his show. In a show dedicated to the surviving Beatles, for example, King asked George Harrison's widow about the song "Something," which was written about George Harrison's first wife. He seemed surprised when she did not know very much about the song.

Throughout his career King has interviewed many of the leading figures of his time. In all, CNN's online biography continues to claim that King has conducted more than 40,000 interviews over the course of his career.[9] King would have to have conducted over 800 interviews a year in order to have talked to this many people.

King also wrote a regular newspaper column in USA Today for almost 20 years, from shortly after that newspaper's origin in 1982 until September 2001.[10] The column consisted of short "plugs, superlatives and dropped names" but was dropped when the newspaper redesigned its "Life" section.[11] The column was resurrected in blog form in November 2008[12] and on Twitter in April 2009.[13]

Sally Jessy Raphael

is an American talk show host, known for the eponymous Sally talk show she hosted for two decades.

Raphael's husband Karl Soderlund assumed the role of her manager, and was a partner in her two biggest successes. She hosted a radio call-in advice show distributed by NBC Talknet which ran from Monday November 2, 1981 to 1987, but is most famous for hosting the television talk show, Sally Jessy Raphaël show (later shortened to simply Sally), which ran in first-run syndication from October 17, 1983 to 2002.

Raphael was there at the right time. "Talknet" was brand new when she came to the attention of producer Maurice Tunick. According to David Richards of the Washington Post, Tunick had auditioned a number of potential hosts, but hadn't yet found the right one. That changed when he gave Raphael a chance to try out. Tunick gave her a one hour trial run on NBC's Washington affiliate, WRC, on Sunday in August 1981. Before going on the air, she decided that rather than doing a political show, she would give advice and discuss subjects she knew a lot about, such as relationship problems. It turned out to be an excellent decision. Even though she had never taken a psychology course, she believed she could relate to the callers as if she and they were good friend. And she was right. Soon, her advice show was being heard on over 200 radio stations, and she developed a loyal group of fans.

One of those fans turned out to be talk show legend Phil Donahue who happened to hear her show one night and liked how she related to the audience. His encouragement led to a tryout on television, where producer Burt Dubrow gave her a chance to be a guest host on a talk show of his. She wasn't very polished, but people who had loved her radio show were very positive about her being on TV. Her non-threatening and common-sense manner appealed to Dubrow, who believed she would gain more confidence as she got some TV experience. By mid-October 1983, she was given her own show on KSDK-TV in St. Louis. The "Sally Jessy Raphael Show" was only a half-hour, but it was the beginning of her successful career as a talk show host.

In 1989, Raphael won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show.

But during the 1990s, as competition in the talk show arena intensified, her show moved toward more sensationalistic topics, as did many of the other talk show hosts who were her competition, including Jerry Springer (who, at the time, was also distributed by Multimedia Entertainment) and Maury Povich. She continued to defend herself against accusations that she was doing the same trash TV as her competitors. Meanwhile, after considerable success, her ratings had begun to slip. Part of this was to be expected: there were now so many TV talk shows that the audience had become fragmented. In fact, by 2000, both Raphael and Springer were suffering similar declines. As one media critic observed, Springer's ratings were the lowest they had been in 3 years, but Raphael's ratings were now the lowest they had been in 12 years. Prior to the ratings declines, Raphael was already having problems with her syndicator: she believed that USA Networks Inc. (formerly Universal Television Enterprises) was more interested in doing promotion for Springer and Povich, whose shows they also carried, rather than paying sufficient attention to her show. She celebrated the anniversary of her 3,500th episode in early 1998, but after that, as her ratings began to decrease and her dissatisfaction with her syndicator persisted, it seemed only a matter of time before her relationship with USA Networks would come to an end. By March 2002, it was announced that after an 18-year run, her show was being canceled. Ironically, in 2002 Raphael was named by Talkers magazine to both their 25 Greatest Radio Talk Show Hosts of all time (she was #5), and the 25 Greatest Television Talk Show Hosts of all time (she was #11). She was one of only three talkers to make both the radio and the TV lists.[2]

Did you know who averaged 27 rebounds per game?

Number 3 – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 1969 – 1989, 17,440 Rebounds

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt ChamberlainImage: Source

Number one in a lot of lists, but not here. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is second, well actually third on the all time rebounding list, only to the two giants who ruled the game during the 60’s. Kareem averaged 11.2 rebounds per game in his career, with his numbers dropping drastically in his second decade of play. His average is 24th best all time. He led the league in rebounding only once, in 1976, his debut year with the Lakers, averaging 16.9 rebounds per game. He averaged more than 10 in his first 12 seasons.

Kareem is a six time NBA champion and a six time NBA MVP, a 19 time All Star, and of course one of the greatest 50 players of all time.

Number 2 (Bill Russell) and

Number 1 (Wilt Chamberlain)

Wilt Chamberain and Bill Russell

For statistical purposes only, Chamberlain is number one all time with 23,924 rebounds in 1045 games and Bill Russell is second with 21,620 rebounds in 963 games. Wilt averaged 22.9 in his career, Russell averaged 22.5. They both deserve the top spot. Both men are the only players in history with more than 20,000 rebounds in their career and a career average of more than 20 rebounds per game. The closest is Bob Petit with 16.9. Both represent an age in basketball when a center stood beneath the basket and no one got near him, no one could compete with him, with them. Close friends throughout their career until the 1969 NBA Finals, when Russell accused Chamberlain of copping out of a game in the face of a defeat, and Chamberlain later called Russell a backstabber. The two didn’t speak for more than 20 years after that. Chamberlain has the record for most rebounds in a game, 55, while Russell is second with 53, the only two men to grab more than 50 rebounds in one game. The list goes on and on… but the bottom line is, these two had one of the best individual rivalries in the history of the NBA and maybe team sports. Chamberlain maybe had a better stat line, but Russell had the titles. Chamberlain had two NBA titles, Russell had eleven. Russell was a five time MVP, Chamberlain was a four time MVP. Chamberlain did win more rebounding titles – he led the league in rebounding 11 times, while Russell led the league five times. Russell’s best was 24.7 in 1964, Chamberlain’s best was in 1961 – 27.2 rebounds per game.

What about active players?

The only three players in the top 30 all time are Shaquille O’neal, who’s 12,566 rebounds put him at 15th. His average of 11.2 is 24th best all time.

Kevin Garnett is 22nd all time in total rebounds with 11,682 and an average of 11.1.

Tim Duncan is 28th all time, with 10,547 rebounds and an average of 11.7 per game, 20th best all time.

And two more – Dennis Rodman – the rebound king of the 1990’s – 20th best all time with 11,954 rebounds and an average of 13.1, 11th best all time.

Dwight Howard’s 12.5 rebounds per game in his short career put him 14th best all time.

Did you know these spin off were as good as the original show?

Did you know that these shows were as good as the original, just maybe in a couple of cases some were better. So what do you think?
10. "Frasier" (Spun off from "Cheers")

Which show is better is debatable, but "Frasier" is worth noting because it is still the shining example of a spin-off done right. It was a brilliantly funny series with its own identity and in its own world, but that was still respectful of its predecessor.

9. "Xena: Warrior Princess" (Spun off from "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys")
Already outshining Herc with her distinctive outfit, weaponry and bad-girl notoriety, Xena became a symbol of female empowerment and, later, a lesbian icon, cementing her place in pop culture history.

8. "Daria" (Spun off from "Beavis and Butt-head")
The boneheaded Beavis and Butt-head used to relish teasing their neighbor about her funny name, but she sure showed them by getting her own show with a great cast of supporting characters and not a music video in sight.

7. "Torchwood" (Spun off from "Doctor Who")
We will always love the Doctor, but Captain Jack and his crew have taken this alien-infested world and added a bit of sex appeal, some fabulous new characters and some serious emotional heft.

6. "Private Practice" (Spun off from "Grey's Anatomy")
While "Grey's" always tries to pretend that it is a medical drama with soapy qualities, "Private Practice" just knows its place in the world: it's an over-the-top primetime soap with mostly preposterous plotlines and a good cast.

5. "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (Spun off from "Star Trek: The Next Generation")
While holodeck creations ran amuck and characters were turned into children on "TNG," "Deep Space Nine" was a political thriller and a Wild West adventure all at once, with a heavier tone and more complex serialized format.

4. "Angel" (Spun off from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer")
No, we're not crazy enough to say that "Angel" was better than "Buffy" overall, but Angel's darkest moments during his show's second and third seasons, which included the return of Darla and Wesley's betrayal, were more compelling than the annoying Dawn/Glory and resurrection storylines in the fifth and sixth seasons of "Buffy."

3. "Melrose Place"
(Spun off from "Beverly Hills, 90210")

We're talking about the original Fox versions here. We liked the campy cheese of the high school drama on "90210," but "Melrose Place" far surpassed it in terms of addictive, over-the-top storylines and grown-up soapy appeal.

2. "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (Spun off from "Law & Order")
"SVU" quickly established itself as something much edgier than its progenitor, focusing only on the cases that shocked us the most: child abuse and sexually based offenses. Plus, the show allowed its detectives to get emotionally involved in all of their cases and created the foundation for one of the great unconsummated relationships on TV.

1. "The Simpsons" (Spun off from "The Tracey Ullman Show")
Tracey Ullman's sketch comedy series was funny, but the best part of it was the short animated segments with that strange yellow family. The Simpsons went on to star in a phenomenon that has lasted for more than two decades, while Ullman's show is a mere TV footnote.

If you did not know the Simpson is the longest running series in the history of TV.

Did you know what the Rooney Rule is?

Did you know what the Rooney Rule is?
Well the Rooney Rule, was established in 2003,[1] requires National Football League teams to interview minority candidates for head coaching and senior football operations opportunities. The rule is named for Dan Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the chairman of the league's diversity committee, and indirectly the Rooney family in general, due to the Steelers' long history of giving African Americans opportunities to serve in team leadership roles. It is often cited as an example of affirmative action.

The Rule was established to ensure that minority coaches were considered for high-level coaching positions. Until 1979, Fritz Pollard was the only minority head coach in NFL history (which was during the league's early years in the 1920's) and by the time the Rule was implemented, only Tom Flores, Art Shell, Dennis Green, Ray Rhodes, Tony Dungy, and Herman Edwards had ever held head coaching jobs. (Only Dungy and Edwards were actively head coaching at the time of the Rule's implementation, though Shell and Green would later return to the sidelines as head coaches.) Dungy in particular had struggled for years before getting a head coaching job; he was often promoted as a head coaching candidate by Chuck Noll when Dungy was an assistant under Noll in the 1980's with the Steelers, but he would not become a head coach until 1996 when he took over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Since the Rooney Rule was established, several NFL franchises have hired minority head coaches, including the Steelers themselves, who hired Mike Tomlin before their 2007 season.[2] (The Steelers, however, had already interviewed Ron Rivera to fulfill the Rule before interviewing Tomlin, and Rooney himself contends that Tomlin's hiring did not result from the Rule.[3]) At the start of the 2006 season, the overall percentage of African American coaches had jumped to 22%, up from 6% prior to the Rooney Rule.[4] Even so, the policy is still debated and no team has stated whether the Rooney Rule contributed to the hiring of a minority.

The rule does not apply if an assistant coach has language in his contract guaranteeing him the head coaching job in case of an opening.[5] For example, this was the case when Mike Martz took over as head coach of the St. Louis Rams before the 2000 season. Also, the rule does not apply if the assistant coach taking over the head position is a minority, as was the case with Mike Singletary and the San Francisco 49ers in late 2008.[6]

In 2003, the NFL fined the Detroit Lions $200,000 for failure to interview minority candidates for the team's vacant head coaching job. After Marty Mornhinweg was fired, the Lions immediately hired former San Francisco 49ers head coach Steve Mariucci to replace him without interviewing any other candidates. The Lions claimed they attempted to interview other candidates but that the minority candidates withdrew from interviews, believing Mariucci's hiring was inevitable.[7]

Recently, legal scholars have advocated for extending the Rooney Rule to college football, where the number of minority head coaches hovers around 6%.[8]

As of June 15, 2009, Rooney Rule requirements now apply to all searches for senior football operations positions within the NFL, regardless of a team's title for that position.[9]

Did you know what was the first Gothic soap opera?

That's right Dark Shadows was the first Gothic soap opera that originally aired weekdays on the ABC television network, from June 27, 1966 to April 2, 1971. The show was created by Dan Curtis, who tells of a dream he had in which a girl takes a long train ride to visit a large mansion. The story "bible," which was written by Art Wallace, does not mention any supernatural elements. It was considered daring (and unprecedented in daytime television) when ghosts were introduced about six months after it began.

The series became hugely popular when, a year into its run, vampire Barnabas Collins, played by Jonathan Frid, appeared. In addition to vampires, Dark Shadows featured werewolves, ghosts, zombies, man-made monsters, witches, warlocks, time travel (both into the past and into the future), and a parallel universe.
