TRX: Make Your Body Your Machine

In: Patrick, Sports & Health

The past couple months, I had been working out with a trainer, as you may or may not know. For the second half of our time training together, he introduced me to TRX. TRX is training using these suspension cables, whereby you are able to give yourself an entire workout from head to toe using these cables. Normally, I don’t always get into these type of workout tools – you know the type you see on an infomercial. But TRX is actually incredible. I could actually see myself getting one of these and training with TRX on a regular basis.

A lot of the time, when you are working out a particular part of the body with the TRX exercises, you are also using other parts of your body as well, such as your core. This allows you to get a more efficient, full body workout in, in less time. You are also able to increase the level of difficulty with each exercise by making modifications to the exercise as you get better at it, or by increasing the number of reps or speed of a particular exercise. The other thing I like about TRX is that you can workout anywhere with it, provided you have something to suspend the cables from. That means you can take these cables and workout outside on a sunny day, and get a killer full body workout, while catching some rays (wearing SPF of course).

Bret Michaels To Replace Simon On Idol?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

There’s a rumor going around today that Bret Michael’s is going to be Simon Cowell’s replacement on American Idol, since this past season was Cowell’s last. If this is true, talk about the comeback for this Poisonous rock star! Looks like Trump gave him the jump into re-super stardom!

He’s certainly would not be similar to Simon’s judging style, but her certainly wouldn’t be new to Idol. He performed “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” on this season’s finale and was also a judge on Nashville Star. In other reality tv, he had his own VH1 reality show called Rock of Love with Bret Michaels and recently won NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice 3. Way to go, buddy! Hopefully his health is back to normal, as I’m sure the long days and extensive travel that is required to do this job can be a bit much for someone that isn’t at their best health-wise.

Dennis Hopper Dies

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Actor Dennis Hopper passed away today at the age of 74. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer some time ago and died today, surrounded by his family and friends in his home in Venice, California. He was best known for his roles in Rebel Without A Cause and Easy Rider. Recently, on March 29th, 2010, he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and was there in attendance. In the past 10 years, he added at least 25 films to his list of work.

Hopper was married five times and also had a history of alcohol and drug abuse. His shortest marriage lasted only 8 days, which was his second marriage (to singer/actress Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas.

Prostate cancer is a slow growing cancer and tends to be more prevalent in men over the age of 50. It usually doesn’t show any signs & symptoms. Advanced prostate cancer can cause spread of the cancer to other parts of the body.

Heidi & Spencer No More

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Thank heavens! Heidi and Spencer are dunzo (as Kristin Cavallari would put it). Heidi Montag’s rep has disclosed the following to TMZ on Heidi’s behalf:

“Heidi is looking to move out due to all the fake bad press that Spencer controls. She’s tired of it and is looking for a place and wants to focus on her acting career.”

Certainly this was coming and not out of the blue, but I wasn’t sure if it would actually happen. Heidi seemed so vacant and brainwashed that it just looked like things were gonna get worse. I really, really hope that however this ended, that it’s part of this season on The Hills. That would indeed be a happy ending to the show for sure. Oh, and on that note, if she can reconcile with LC now that Spencer is out of the picture, then the show would totally come full circle.

Heidi is currently looking for a new place to live in Malibu – sans Spencer.

Although we were there the day they got married, I’m certainly still glad they are en route to divorce. It’s the best thing for both of them.

First Look: Rihanna’s “Te Amo” Video

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

Totally pushing the boundaries! I love this video for her 5th single on Rated R! Rihanna dives head first and explores her girl-on-girl side in this video. And, its way more intense and passionate than I’ve seen in other videos…you know, where it’s a little “I Kissed A Girl And I Liked It-esque” and there is no passion or believability in the situation. This is not that.

In this video directed by Anthony Mandler, Rihanna is all sexed up (bondage and all!) and can’t keep her hands off French supermodel Laetitia Casta. It’s incredibly hot and perfectly compliments the sexy song that is Te Amo.

Natasha Bedingfield: Top 5 Songs

In: Music, Patrick

Released on iTunes last week, the first single from Natasha Bedingfield’s upcoming album is a hit in my books! It’s called Touch. When you click with the right person, two different paths come together, in what often appears to be a random situation. The lyrics read, “Cuz you’re here right now, Sitting on my couch. Funny how it all works out.” So true. What happens next? “We Dance, And We Laugh, and we touch (touch touch).”

The song is super catchy and a great song to add to your summer playlist for sure. It’s a feel good, happy song as a lot of her songs are. Bedingfield is pretty good at making those “feel good” songs that last. I listen to Unwritten on a weekly basis, as the theme song to The Hills. Check out my Top 5 favorite Natasha Bedingfield songs below, and her newest hit, Touch. Therefore, check out my Top 6 favorite songs because I couldn’t narrow it down.

Kristin Cavallari To Dish The Dirt

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

After a year on The Hills, Kristin Cavallari plans on writing a tell-all book after the show wraps up this summer. I’m sure there’s a lot to tell people about how staged the show is and how everyone interacts off camera. Looks like she’ll not only be following in Lauren Conrad’s footsteps, having taken over as lead/narrator in The Hills and then moving onto “writing”. Wonder how LC will feel about that.

“After The Hills, I plan to work on many business opportunities, and I have always wanted to write a tell-all book,” she told In Touch.

Well, someone has to spill on The Hills so we know what it was really like to work on that show. I certainly wouldn’t want it to be Heidi and Spencer.

My guess is that a lot of The Hills characters are going to struggle to find their new role in show biz, since no one is going to pay them to be their catty/spoiled selves anymore.

Gary Coleman Dead

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Update: Gary Coleman passed away today. TMZ has reported that Gary’s wife, Shannon, made the decision to pull life support early this AM. He died at 12:05 PM MST of a intracranial hemorrhage.

The 42 year old former Diff’rent Strokes star was injured in his home earlier this week (fell and hit his head) and things have taken a turn for the worse. Coleman was hospitalized a few days ago, but after suffering from intercranial hemorrhages, he has slipped into a coma and is now on life support.

The manager, John Alcantar, of the hospital where he is being treated has released the following update:

“As of mid-morning on May 27, Mr. Coleman was conscious and lucid. By early afternoon, Mr. Coleman was slipping in and out of consciousness and his condition worsened.

We are saddened to announce that since mid-afternoon, Mountain Time, on May 27, 2010, Mr. Coleman has been unconscious and on life support.

At this critical moment, we can only ask for your thoughts and prayers for Gary to make a speedy and full recovery.”

Coleman’s always had to keep an eye on his health. He has a congenital kidney disease “caused by focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (an autoimmune destruction and alteration of the kidney), which halted his growth at an early age, leading to a small stature (4 ft 8 in; 1.42 m),” as stated by Wiki.
