On Sunday, June 16th, Fifty one women will compete for the big sparkly crown and the title of Miss USA at the 62nd Annual Miss USA Competition. Giuliana Rancic, E! News anchor and co-host of the pageant, says she’s ready to roll with the “anything-can-happen” moments and she’s excited for the world to meet all the fabulously fit contestants.
Joining veteran Giuliana (who is hosting for the third year in a row) will be first-timer, Nick Jonas. In addition to emcee duties he’ll also be performing with his band, the Jonas Brothers. Before they take off for final auditions and prep work for the live show in Las Vegas this weekend, Giuliana and Nick took some time this afternoon to talk about the women, the pageant and answer a few questions from the press. We wanted to know if the hosts felt the contest conveyed a positive body image. The answer was a resounding, “absolutely.”
Britney Spears is always in the spotlight. Sometimes for her music, sometimes for her personal drama, and lately for her new body, something the pop star has dramatically changed with yoga.
The 31-year-old mother of two is preparing for her new Las Vega show, set to open in the fall. She recently told Shape magazine that she needed to be in shape to pull off that performance. Spears began working with her trainer and started the Nutrisystem program. The results have been impressive as Spears sported a very revealing bikini on the cover of Shape this month. (more…)

Las Vegas, Nevada: Where else can you gamble, exercise, and be romantic at the same time? Sin City is the only answer to that question. Walking up and down the strip never gets old and there are endless options of things to do. Spend time swimming in one of the pools, walk or jog up and down the strip, go hiking at Red Rock Canyon, try kayaking at Mead Lake, or go snowboarding or skiing at the Ski Las Vegas Ski Resort.
Stand back, burger lovers. The Sin City Burger, previously only sold at the Smashburger restaurant located in Las Vegas, has been added to the menu of the other restaurants. It will be offered for a limited time – which is probably a good thing. Featuring a burger on an egg bun topped with a fried egg, applewood smoked bacon, melted American cheese, grilled haystack onions and “Smash sauce”, it was created with the “city that never sleeps” in mind. The burger will be removed from all Smashburger restaurant menus on Feb 27, 2011.
“The Sin City Smashburger was such a popular menu item in Las Vegas that we couldn’t resist bringing this delicious burger to all of our restaurants,” said Smashburger founder Tom Ryan. “This will be the first time in Smashburger history that we take a regional burger on the road nationwide, and we know that the award-winning Sin City Smashburger will be enjoyed across the country.”
What would you do if almost every time you eat a meal, you suffered extreme abdominal pain? Dave Teator had to face this problem every day. Doctors could not explain why he would feel perfectly fine one day, and be very ill the next.
Finally, Teator took matters into his own hands and decided to try a gluten-free diet last year. And guess what, it worked!
“Going to a gluten-free diet made me feel so much better,” Teator said. “The healthier markets out there, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, dedicate gluten-free aisles, but the one thing that was missing was fresh baked [bread products].”
