Victoria's Secret: Miranda Kerr to model $2.5 million bra
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon rummage through the pop-culture finds a very expensive bra, hears about an email hacker who’s very sorry, spies some tasty waves, and more.
NOW THAT’S ONE EXPENSIVE BRA: Per People, “She must be on Santa’s good list! Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr has been chosen by the brand to model the iconic Fantasy Treasure Bra — a $2.5 million diamond-studded piece — in the Christmas Dreams & Fantasies catalogue and during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November.
“It’s such an honor to wear the bra,” Kerr tells PEOPLE. “And it’s such a piece of artwork! It’s absolutely stunning — it kind of feels a little mermaid-like — but I can’t believe I’m wearing $2.5 million on my chest.”
The aqua push-up brassiere, created in part by Long Island’s London Jewelers, is handset with nearly 3,400 precious gems, including 142 carats of white and yellow diamonds, pearls, faceted citrines and aquamarines, all set in 18-karat white and yellow gold. The centerpiece features two white diamonds — each more than 8 carats — and two 14-plus-carat yellow diamonds.” http://bit.ly/q0Glg0
MEANWHILE: Per Radar, “Lindsay Lohan walked a red carpet in Los Angeles Wednesday night looking like a far cry from her former star days, and RadarOnline.com has the shocking photos of the starlet’s frightening look. In a close up Lindsay’s teeth seem to be stained brown and almost rotting, a far cry from the million dollar smile she used to have and her face is unusually puffy.” http://bit.ly/qmDB8u
HE’S SORRY: Per the Los Angeles Times, “Scarlett Johansson, your long, naked nightmare may be over: The FBI has arrested a man it suspects of hacking into email accounts of celebs and their friends to procure and distribute revealing personal pictures. So how did Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Fla., -- arrested Wednesday after a yearlong investigation dubbed Operation Hackerazzi by the FBI in Los Angeles – do it?
The Times' celeb crime specialists . . .heard it like this from law enforcement: Mining details of the stars' personal lives in celebrity magazines and websites as well as Twitter and Facebook posts, Chaney looked for potential passwords that would give him access to their accounts, the FBI said. The name of a dog. A favorite movie. An old address. A sibling's nickname. Once he cracked the password, officials charged, he hit a gold mine, gaining access to the stars' address books as well as any photos and other files saved on their emails. He used an email forwarding program that automatically duplicated any messages the stars received into his account. So even when the celebrities change their passwords, he'd know about it, officials said.
Chaney told a Florida news station that he knew what he did was wrong, but got so hooked on it he didn't know how to stop.” http://lat.ms/rnKyPU
NEW GIG FOR ALEC BALDWIN: Per the AP, “Alec Baldwin is preparing for life after "30 Rock," working with New York public radio on an interview show that will be available via podcast starting Oct. 24.
The first interview posted will be with actor Michael Douglas, who talks about watching "Glee" with his young daughter. Other interviews to follow will be with Republican campaign strategist Ed Rollins, reality-show celebrity Kris Kardashian Jenner, comic Chris Rock, actress Kathleen Turner, author Erica Jong and veteran talk-show host Dick Cavett, station WNYC said Thursday.” http://apne.ws/rdHDUC
NO SKIT: Per the Huffington Post, “Former "Saturday Night Live" actress, conservative columnist and avowed enemy of both "Glee" and gay people, Victoria Jackson took a video camera to the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City, predictably trying to inflame the supporters camped out in Zuccotti Park.
Once Jackson got down to the protests, she began interviewing both the protesters and those that happened to be passing by. She began by asking what they were protesting, then seizing on their responses. She often brought up President Obama's connection to GE, calling him a Marxist and socialist.” http://huff.to/reAiR2
GREAT NEWS!: Per Us, “Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick have famously feuded in the past, but it appears the two have finally worked through their issues. On Wednesday night Kourtney Kardashian's beau, 28, and Khloe, 27, partied together at T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy SII and HTC Amaze 4G's bash in NYC.
In a 2009 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe literally slapped Disick when he came between her and Kourtney. The duo's relationship continued to worsen during Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, when Disick's drinking impeded his ability to be a good boyfriend and father to Mason, 22 months.” http://bit.ly/qXTX95
SURF’S UP: Per ESPN, "I beat the greatest surfer in the world today," an overwhelmed Gabriel Medina said Wednesday after taking out Kelly Slater in the quarterfinals at the Quiksilver Pro France. This was only Medina's second World Tour event. Medina and Slater met three times in this year's event. In the previous two heats, Medina had gotten closer and closer. In foggy, low-tide conditions with a slight onshore wind blowing into the left-hand peaks, ideal for the young goofy footer, Medina finally found the waves to display his aerial repertoire.” http://es.pn/qVdEZ0
