So long June....but hellooooooooo Winnie!

Yes, Danica McKellar stole our hearts as Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years, but now she's an author. We can respect that. She's also married. That's where the confusion comes in. Wasn't there an unspoken agreement that if things didn't work out with Kevin, we'd be next in line?!? Hmmmm. Well anyway, pick up Danica's new book, Kiss My Math or her previous bestseller, Math Doesn't Suck.

Let's go ahead and start out with a Megan Fox photo for the second day in a row. We listed the photo yesterday as being from the London premiere of the new Transformers movie, but that was actually taken at the Berlin premiere (our bad).

Fulfilling the hopes and dreams of an entire nation, the ultimate paparazzi photo has just been released. It accomplishes three things: 1) it fuels the rumor that Jennifer Hudson is pregnant, 2) it gives a well-deserved shout out to Colonel Sanders (standing outside the local KFC), and 3) it confirms the old saying, "the couple that flosses together, stays together." Nice!
