Let’s talk about physical deformities. Now, we’re not talking X Men-style levels of crazy mutations where people grow wings or anything, we mean ‘normal’ kind of things. To a degree. We’re talking about things like extra toes, Chandler Bing-esque nubbins and things. While you might not know anyone who has these kinds of things, weirdly, quite a few famous people are mildly odd-looking for various reasons. Sure, it may seem a little like old school freak show pointing and staring, but hey – they put themselves out there. Let’s gawp at fifteen of the oddest…

Denzil Washington is one of the coolest, most talented and sexiest actors of the past few decades. Women swoon over the New York-born actor because of his hunky looks, but he’s not perfect. His weird little deformity? A freaky finger that dislocates and goes off at a crazy angle. He broke his pinky finger as a child and it didn’t heal properly… And now he’s left like this! Poor Denzel.

Musician Seal is mostly known for somehow being able to talk Heidi Klum into marrying him. But perhaps the second most famous thing that people know Seal for? The facial scarring. But this skin condition isn’t the result of burns or a terrible accident, it’s from a type of lupus called discoid lupus erythematosus, an affliction that specifically affects the skin above the neck.

Joaquin Phoenix, the super-talented actor and star of movies such as Gladiator, Walk the Line and Buffalo Soldier, looks like he has a cleft palette or hare lip. But he doesn’t. The line which is visible on his upper lip is merely a birth mark, not even a scar. He claims that his mother felt a sharp pain one day while pregnant with him and attributes the birth mark to it. For some reason.

The towering walking forehead that is the terminally disappointing Vince Vaughn might have redeemed himself a little recently with his role in True Detective, but he can’t get back the tip of his thumb. He lost it in a car accident when he was seventeen. So while most of us would give his resume a thumbs down, he can only give us half a thumb back.

Mark ‘Marky Mark’ Wahlberg may be many things – actor, producer, singer, ex-convict… But there’s one thing he isn’t: a man with two nipples. That’s right, the Boston-born 44 year-old has an extra one. A third nipple can be quite common and while he may be half-cow, it’s clearly never really affected his confidence. Look at him here. Hardly a wallflower, is he?

Ashton Kutcher might well be a millionaire entrepreneur and actor who’s married to Mila Kunis, but he’s not had life all his own way. He’s been secretly harboring a bizarre and vile physical deformity that threatens to blow his career and sicken the world… Two of his toes are, like, ever so slightly webbed a bit. Urgh, we know… It’s absolutely disgusting, isn’t it?

Kate Bosworth, the cute blonde star of movies like the Straw Dogs remake might well be in possession of the most adorable and sought-after ‘physical deformity’ known to man. She has, what’s known – to us, at least – as ‘Bowie Eyes’. One brown eye, one blue eye, you don’t always notice it when watching one of her films, but close up like this? It’s really quite eye catching and beautiful, isn’t it?

Victoria’s Secrets model Karolina Kurkova has been named – on more than one occasion – as the world’s sexist woman. Even despite her weird affliction… She doesn’t have a belly button. Why? Well, infant surgery on something known as an ‘umbilical hernia’. She technically does have a belly button, it’s just popped out to the same level as the rest of her abdomen.

She may well have slipped off the radar somewhat, but time was – not so long ago – actress Megan Fox was commonly thought to be the most attractive woman in the world. And not too many would argue with that. But she isn’t physically perfect, either. Her flaw? Clubbed big toes and thumbs. Shortened digits with stubby little nail beds.

Whereas Megan Fox might have shortened little thumbs and big toes, her fellow Hollywood big hitter Jeremy Renner has quite the opposite thing going on. The clubbing on his finger and toe nail beds is exaggerated, leading to quite noticeably larger finger and toenails than ‘normal’ people. Still, hasn’t affected his stratospheric career, has it? And, well, why would it?

Hrithik Roshan is a big time star over in India. Being a Bollywood superstar makes you a pretty big time on the Asian sub-continent. Filmmakers do well to hide his odd-looking ‘double thumb’, but Roshan isn’t ashamed of his extra appendage. In fact, he calls it ‘beautifully imperfect’. Which is a nice way of looking at it, isn’t it?

Out-there pop star Ke$ha has (or should we say ‘had’?) perhaps the most unusual physical deformity on this list… A TAIL! “I had a tail when I was born. It was a tiny tail, about a quarter of an inch, then they chopped it off and stole my tail. That was when I was little. I’m really sad about that story”, she says. Which is all very weird, isn’t it?

And to close us out, a couple of examples of celebrity foot mangle. This first one is Drive and Mad Men star Christina Hendricks. A pin-up star and much loved for her figure and beautiful looks, who would imagine that she has such unsightly feet? We suspect that this deformity is less genetic and more the result of some rather ill-fitting shoes…

Our final entry is another celebrity foot foul-up. This time Ben Affleck’s soon-to-be-ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. Her little toe here is seriously messed up. In fact, it looks as though it’s attempting to escape it’s flip-flop prison. Again, is this the result of some bad shoe-based decisions? We think it might well be.

Dr. Oz: “I’m Very Concerned About the Corona Virus, Here’s Why”

Published

on

By

While coronaviruses have been known to medical science since the 1960s, few have been anywhere near as dangerous as this new one from the market in Wuhan China. 

A coronavirus is typified by its protective shell which resembles a crown or a halo under a microscope. That is where it gets its name. The average coronavirus does little more than cause the symptoms of the common cold, sniffles, cough, flu-like symptoms and so on. Part of the reason that these viruses are so hard to prevent from causing millions of colds each year is their protective shell. They can remain on a surface for hours, sometimes days, before they begin to lose structural integrity. But few trigger symptoms as severe as this one known as 2019-nCoV. 

Dr. Oz had this to say about what has become known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, “It’s alarming, this is the big news today, the Chinese leadership is starting to say ‘this incubation period is a lot longer than we thought.’” 

If this report is true, it means that many, many more people may be infected than have been reported- or even anticipated. It means that people could be walking around, infected, and not even know it- not taking precautions and spreading the virus everywhere they go. That means anyone who has recently returned from the area around the Wuhan market, where the outbreak started, could be carrying the disease. 

At the time of this writing, the total enumerated infection count is over 1,800. The total deaths are approaching 200. Other researchers are suggesting that this virus has a rapid mutation rate. That is particularly terrifying because it is what made the HIV-AIDS virus so difficult to treat.

At present, the World Health Organization had laid down a series of suggestions to help people avoid infection.

They advise that anyone who may come into contact with the virus should:

  • Wash their hands frequently
  • Maintain good sanitation on and around all frequently used objects and surfaces
  • Avoid centers of mass travel such as airports
  • Sneeze and cough into the elbow or a tissue
  • Take immunity-boosting supplements like vitamin C

The source of the infection is believed to have come from a specific market in Wuhan, where live animals were kept in stalls for sale and trade. Researchers believe the virus came from either a snake or a bat. The initial cases of illness were reported in December 2019 by employees of the Wuhan market. That market is now shut down for the foreseeable future.

As health officials struggle to understand the virus and contain its progress, other researchers are asking even more startling questions. The shell of this virus is similar to the shell of a virus created in a university research lab in 2015 at the University of North Carolina. What’s more, there is a known military biological weapons lab in Wuhan China.

If these reports are true, it could have serious implications, not only for global health- but for relations between the US and China.

Big Brother Contestants Make How Much on the Show?!?

Published

By

Big Brother has been a wildly popular, dramatic reality TV game show since 2000. Audiences are captivated by the twists, the turns, the strange alliances, and the betrayals. The show is based on a Dutch program with the same premise which also became wildly popular in Spain and Germany before the reboot came to America.

As the US version grew in popularity, the producers eventually made it possible for fans to watch the contestants on a non-live streaming video feed available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, the contestants on Big Brother are now on display to be viewed by anyone in the world at every waking moment. How they avoid getting caught in their all-togethers or during toilet breaks, we don’t know. Maybe they have certain camera-safe areas to which they can retreat.

Later on, the house the Big Brother contestants live in was stripped of all communication devices- depriving them of contact with the outside world. That is- except for the live feeds the public has unfettered access to. So, if one of them was being held hostage, we suppose they could let us know.

So the question came up of, how much do the contestants really earn? By playing the game they have the chance to make friends, or enemies, become Internet sensations, and to win half a million dollars. But, given everything they have to put up with; being ripped out of their lives, possibly losing jobs, experiencing the anguish of betrayal- all while being on public display- do they get anything else?

According to a report by Reality Blurred, a site that follows the happenings of reality TV stars, programs, and related matters- the contestants “[…] receive $750 per week that they’re in the house.”

Any pay they receive while in the jury house is harder to account for since nothing about it appears on the contract. However, it is believed that contestants receive consolation prizes during their time out of the main house. It also seems reasonable that the consolation prizes received in the jury house should be worth at least $500 since keeping them away from other gainful employment for less than that would be near to slavery. (We’re looking at you, jury duty.)

However, while the big prize on Big Brother is a cool half-million on top of what the contestants earn as their weekly salary, in reality- they have much more to gain in Internet stardom.

Many former Big Brother players have gone on to lucrative careers as influencers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites. While any gains from that are unlikely to be as exhilarating as half a million in fast cash- the best of them certainly earn more than that over the long term.

So, it would appear that our curiosity MacGuffins on Big Brother are at least doing as well as someone earning minimum wage- while essentially fooling around Truman Show style.

Single Mom Irina Shayk, Happy Single

Published

Those in the public spotlight seem to be an open book. Their every move seems to is covered by gossip sites. Their whereabouts are nearly always and it seems as if we are updated on who’s dating who and what luxurious vacation they are on.

That’s why it is surprising that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper kept their relationship under wraps for so long, dating all the way back to 2015. The couple was first spotted together after the actor and model were first seen in 2015. Cooper split from Suki Waterhouse and Shayk ended her five-year relationship with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.

The couple was first seen together at a Broadway show, then shortly thereafter, the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Things seemed to move quickly from there. Within months the couple moved in together, soon they announced they were expecting.

Work Gets in the Way:

Irina, who has been quiet about her relationship and breakup with Bradley Cooper, recently spoke up about their relationship.

The couple ended their relationship in 2019, on the heels of the release of the stars’ remake of a Star is Born. The on-screen chemistry between Bradley Cooper and his co-star, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, sent tongues wagging. Rumors were raging that the two co-stars were in a relationship based on their pationate adaption of the film.

Irina set the record straight in some recent interviews about the end of their relationship. According to Shayk, the couple hadn’t been getting along for quite some time. After the baby was born, Shayk was hoping that Cooper would put their family first and slow down his busy working schedule. She was secretly hoping that after A Star is Born was released and the promotional tour was over, he would spend more time at home. That was not the case.

Irina, 33, was ready to settle into family life. This included getting married and more children. But the marriage never happened, and Cooper’s work schedule was as busy as ever.

Irina felt that her expectations weren’t met and she didn’t have the commitment level she wanted from Cooper. Shortly after the Award season in June 2019, the news broke that the couple had split. Irina had taken baby Lea and moved out of the couples Los Angeles home.At first, the separation was thought to be temporary. Both partners have decided that they are better apart than together.

Better Apart:

The couple continues to co-parent their daughter, but it seems like the couple are happty being apart. They both seem to be quite content focusing on their child and carreers.

Irina recently said that “life without Cooper” and being a single mom is “new ground.” She also said that just because two people are great on their own, they are not always good together.

Irina is a strong woman, and while she often feels overwhelmed being a single-mom, she’s ready for the challenge. Both parents are dedicated to doing what is best for their child and are curently working on a visitation schedule.
