Congratulations to Jessica Kruger, a Canadian beauty and quadriplegic wheelchair rugby player, who was chosen as the new beauty ambassador for Canadian beauty brand Lise Watier. Kruger was chosen as a finalist in an online competition, and then selected as the winner by a panel of judges. Kruger became a quadriplegic after falling off a ladder when she was 15. "She is someone that we can all look at and learn from," said Lise Watier spokesperson Rachel Ladouceur. "We definitely chose her because she has just been so positive about everything that happened to her. It's more about what she made out of it." [Source]

Breast justice: Laurence Pieau, the guy who first unleashed Kate Middleton's topless sunbathing photos upon the world, has been charged with violating France's privacy laws. Pieau, the editor of French magazine Closer, obtained and published the pics of Kate sunbathing topless at the Chateau d'Autet in Provence, France while on vacation there in September 2012. Pieau is expected to stand trial with two photographers who were formally charged with a similar crime in April. "It is a young couple that has just been married," Pieau continued. "They are in love. They are beautiful. She is the princess of the 21st century." We are gonna bet that Kate and William disagreed. [Source]

The goal of the Stodden/Hutchinson tape is to make sure that you're having all the repulsive sex that they're having. I know, I know. [Source]
