Hallelujah, We'll Be Spared A GoDaddy Commercial At Super Bowl 50
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Remember GoDaddy's Super Bowl commercial last year? The one that showed us a puppy bouncing out of a truck bed and embarking on an Odyssean journey home, only to be scooped up and unceremoniously shipped off by a likely unethical dog breeder who'd just sold him online? Maybe you recall the Internet domain retailer's 2013 Super Bowl ad? The one featuring a slurpy makeout sesh between model Bar Refaeli and professional nerd archetype Jesse Heiman to promote its Neanderthalian "Smart Meets Sexy" campaign? (Yes, true to every harmful stereotype about women, Refaeli played the "sexy" half.) Or what about GoDaddy's completely nonsensical 2012 Super Bowl spot, in which NASCAR driver Danica Patrick and fitness guru Jillian Michaels paint "GoDaddy" and ".co" a couple times on a model's bare skin until they realize (silly women!) they hadn't covered her breasts? Or the company's half-assed 2011 ad showing Patrick and Michaels fighting the men forcing them, via legalese, to do a GoDadd ...

Leonardo DiCaprio Is A Little Pessimistic When It Comes To Having Kids
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Perennial bachelor Leonardo DiCaprio fends off questions about settling down and starting a family in the January 2016 issue of Rolling Stone.  "Do you mean do I want to bring children into a world like this?" asked the 41-year-old actor. "If it happens, it happens. I'd prefer not to get into specifics about it, just because then it becomes something that is misquoted. But, yeah." Still, in a recent interview with Parade magazine, DiCaprio did say he's open to the concept of marriage. "That time will come when that time comes," he admitted. "The truth is, you can't predict marriage. You can't plan it. It's just going to happen when it happens." DiCaprio recently broke things off with his model girlfriend, Kelly Rohrbach. He's dated a number of stunning women over the years, including Toni Garrn, Bar Refaeli, Erin Heatherton and Gisele Bundchen.  For now, "The Revenant" actor seems happy with the current leading lady in his life -- his Golden Globe. DiCaprio won Best Ac ...

Leonardo DiCaprio And Kelly Rohrbach Have Broken Up
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Leonardo DiCaprio in a relationship is a little like Leonardo DiCaprio without an acting Oscar: It just feels wrong. The possibility of an Oscar will have to wait until February's Academy Awards, but the relationship part -- well, that was handled about a month ago.  Us Weekly reports that DiCaprio and girlfriend of several months Kelly Rohrbach called it quits back in December. The magazine's source claims "intense work schedules" were to blame for their separation, which was described as "mutual." DiCaprio was first seen with the 25-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model in June, and gossip reports would have you believe their relationship escalated quickly. In October, several media outlets even reported that they were engaged to marry, despite objections from Rohrbach's parents. DiCaprio, 41, has never been married, but he's been attached to some of the world's most beautiful women over the years, including Gisele Bundchen and Bar Refaeli.   The actor seems to hav ...

Bar Refaeli Investigated For Alleged Tax Fraud
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Israeli tax officials are investigating supermodel Bar Refaeli and her mother for possible tax fraud. The pair stand accused of hiding millions of dollars in income from the authorities. The Israeli authorities have expressed particular concern over free Range Rover and Lexus vehicles the 30-year-old model allegedly received in exchange for promoting those brands. Refaeli and her mother, Tzipora Refaeli, were detained for questioning on the tax matter Thursday, but were quickly released on a $193,000 bond, the BBC reports. They have also been ordered not to leave Israel in the next six months without informing authorities.  According to NBC News, Refaeli's lawyers are aggressively contesting the tax officials' claims. They say that the current investigation stems from a long-running dispute over whether Refaeli ought to pay taxes in Israel, where she was born, or abroad, where she earns much of her money. "Soon everything will be clear," Giora Adereth, an attorney for Ref ...
