Jon Gosselin from Jon & Kate is having an affair
Wed May 6
Jon and his mistress I'm a romantic, so when I heard the rumors of an affair between Jon Gosselin and a mysterious lady friend, I refused to believe them. A few snapshots of him and a chick at a bar weren't enough to convince me; I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. Sadly, the suspicions have now been confirmed in the latest issue of Us Weekly. The girl we've been seeing in all the tabloid photos is Deanna Hummel, a 23-year-old third grade school teacher, who's been hanging around the Gosselins' home while Kate was away promoting her book. Tacky! Hummel's brother, Jason, has come out of the woodwork in an effort to expose the affair and "protect" his sister. Nice job, Jason. He's dishing out some interesting information on the pair, including some inside knowledge of their apparently very sexual relationship: "A lot of the time, it was pretty, um, gross listening to her, you know, um — how do I say this? The walls are thin. Let's just say that. I mean, no...
Free KFC! For a price...
Wed May 6
Before you turn your nose up at feeding your tot fried chicken for supper, chew on this: Kentucky Fried Chicken revamped its traditionally super-fatty menu with a new, healthier option: grilled chicken. And from now through May 19 (excluding Mother's Day), you can snag a two-piece meal (which comes with your choice of two sides and a beyond-delicious biscuits!) for free . But you do have to pay for it, in a way. In order to print your coupon , you have to install a "coupon printer." Um, can't any printer be a coupon printer? Apparently not. We haven't downloaded the "coupon printer" yet for fear of spyware, but perhaps our hunger will get the better of us. The coupon must be printed out by midnight tonight in order to be valid. Update: Apparently grilled chicken is a hot commodity in NYC, because riots, sit-ins and general debauchery have broken out at the Midtown East location. Screaming matches are in full force, racial slurs are being tossed around,...
Save a life: Attend a donor drive
Tue May 5
About a month ago, a little boy from Manhattan named Kai Anderson was diagnosed with a very rare form of Leukemia. Although he's undergoing chemotherapy, he desperately needs a bone-marrow transplant. Sadly, there just aren't enough donors: fewer than 20% of those in need of a transplant ever get one. The good news is, you can change that. Donor drives are being held throughout the city over the upcoming weeks to help Kai find a match. This weekend, Whole Foods in Tribeca is hosting one. All it takes is a swab of your cheek to see if you're a match; if you are, the outpatient procedure isn't invasive—it's tantamount to giving blood. And hey, you may be saving a life. FREE Fri 8 5--8pm; Sat 9 10am--2pm. Whole Foods Market Tribeca, 270 Greenwich St at Murray St (917-287-4039, hopeforkai.com). Subway: A, C, 1, 2, 3 to Chambers St; E to World Trade Center.
