Back in 1973, an epic gender throwdown took place on the tennis court. 55-year-old retired former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs challenged 29-year-old No. 2-ranked Billie Jean King for an epic tennis match for the ages.
Just months prior, Riggs played another top female player, Margaret Court, but this time, the outcome would be different. King would prevail in a decisive three-set win.
Their infamous Battle of the Sexes attracted more than 50 million viewers. HBO is now bringing the story to life for a new film. Find out who’s attached to play the athletes below.

Just like Friday the 13th in February, FOX has unleashed another teaser for Ryan Murphy’s upcoming horror-comedy anthology, Scream Queens. This time, an actual cast member from the new series actually appears in the clip.
Emma Roberts, like the random blonde previously shown, chews bubblegum. However, instead of blowing up in a bloody explosion, something else happens. I won’t spoil it for you.
In other Scream Queens related news, the cast is losing one high profile name. Sadly, Joe Manganiello dropped out. No official reason has been revealed, but most likely it has to do with the rumors he’s being courted to star in the big budget superhero flick, Suicide Squad. Rumor has it, he’s close to sealing the deal to play Deathstroke. Plus, he has a busy summer ahead of him promoting Magic Mike XXL.
For those reasons, I can forgive him for leaving. Find out who his replacement is below, along with watching the new Emma Roberts promo.
Who had a feeling this was coming???
Earlier this week, Marvin Gaye’s family won an unprecedented settlement in their copyright infringement lawsuit against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke. It appears “Blurred Lines” isn’t the only hit Pharrell penned that ‘borrowed’ from Gaye’s catalog.
Nona believes “Happy” borrows from her late father’s 1967 hit, “Ain’t That Peculiar.” She chatted with Entertainment Tonight about it. Read her quote below and check out both tracks afterward to see if her new claim has merit. Be sure to sound off afterwards.
“I’m not going to lie. I do think they sound alike,” Nona Gaye told ET. However, she says they’re not going to be taking Pharrell to court for it since they’re “not in that space” right now. It was a sentiment backed up by Nona’s mother, Janis Gaye, who added, “We’re just in the moment today and we’re satisfied.”
For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve taken a little break from the soccer and CrossFit athletes of been featuring lately and have selected a sexy tennis player some of you will already know. His name is Grigor Dimitrov.
Dimitrov is a 23-year-old professional tennis player from Bulgaria and his career-high ATP singles ranking is 8th in the world, which he achieved in August 2014, shortly after reaching the semifinals of Wimbledon. He is the most successful Bulgarian male tennis player, both in terms of ranking reached and prize money earned. His father is a tennis coach so he’s been playing all his life and it’s all he ever dreamed of doing. His nickname is “Baby Fed,” given to him because of his stylish play and on-court talent that is similar to Roger Federer.
Check out his photos and videos below!
“What About Your Friends” off their debut album, Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip, is one of TLC’s most underrated singles. Sure, it cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 but most fans of the girl group probably wouldn’t put it in their Top 5. Not this fan and it would appear, neither would Kat Graham.
The Vampire Diaries actress samples the TLC track for her latest single, “1991.” It’s a bit odd she chose that year given that the album dropped in 1992, but oh well. Tomayto, Tomahto. Regardless, Graham’s new song is hot and I’m obsessed. No doubt in part to its throwback content.
“I spent most of my time in music– at least for the songs that garnered attention– singing other people’s work,” the 25-year-old singer shared to Billboard. “I want to be honest about that because I am finally doing what I’ve always wanted to do and making music that I’ve always wanted to make.”
Gotta give Kat credit for keeping on and doing her thing with the music. Girl won’t stop hustin‘ until she becomes a bonafide recording success. Give her latest a spin below.
In case you didn’t already know, White Party 2015 is just around the corner, taking place April 24-27 in Palm Springs, California. I have personally been to this event a few times now and have always had such a blast! Perfect weather, amazing music and performances, and sexy men everywhere you look. There’s certainly something for everyone.
White Party Palm Springs Producer Jeffrey Sanker has also the addition of WET ‘n’ WILD Palm Springs water park to his White Party weekend line-up. This massive outdoor event, happening all day Saturday, features 20 water rides and attractions as well as live DJs. Water parks are one of my favorite things and I think this is an excellent addition to an already “wet & wild” weekend.
As they do every year, the performers and celebrities involved are announced bit by bit (keeping us on the edge of our seats)and so far so good! In addition to plethora of great DJs, WPPS has announced that Leann Rimes, Kelly Osbourne, and Frankie Grande will all be there this year. Find out what they’ll be doing below.
I mean seriously!!! Can those pants be any tighter? Not that I’m complaining.
All last year, Nick Jonas cock teased everyone in North American and now he’s doing the same, but this time to the French boys. Le Marais, the Paris gay-bourhood, won’t know what hit them.
The 22-year-old appears on the April 2015 issue of Tetu magazine wearing, naturally, some Louis Vuitton. You can’t appear on a French gay mag without rocking undoubtedly the most prolific Parisian fashion label.
I can’t wait to see the inside editorial. The publication is known for their stylishly sensual spreads. Until then, marvel at the sizzling cover above.
