Why Women Enjoy Sex With Married Men

By Vanessa Burton
Why? Why would a single (or even attached) woman chase after a married man when she knows that he's attached to another woman? Easy, it starts off because, as is the human condition, the food on someone else's plate always looks (and sometimes tastes) better than what you're having.

According to a study conducted by the University of Louisville, many women tend to engage in something the study referred to as "mate copying." In other words, such women tend to believe that if another woman is either after a man or with a man, there must be something he possesses that's worthy of pursuit.

It happens all the time. When I'm out with male friends, whether it be at a club or restaurant, the instant women think I'm with them, they begin flirting with said gentlemen like piranhas. Maybe it's because they assume that if a good-looking woman is with such a man, they need to prove that they're just as hot as her.

Maybe it's because these women love a challenge, drama, no strings, or even simply the thrill of sin. Whatever the case, many a woman has revealed that sex with attached men is usually incredible. Why? Because he's been eating chicken every day, and when these women give them a piece of their action, it's like feeding them duck a l'orange -- something exotic.

It's more exciting to be sneaky
Melanie, 28, who enjoys a high-position in a big corporation, admits that she had an affair with a married man who worked in her office. "The sex was awesome because we had to be careful all the time, so when I would end up holding onto a cabinet in the office supplies room while he penetrated me with quick thrusts during lunchtime, it would excite me like no other sex I've ever had."

She admits it was tons of fun, until the "relationship" starting moving from lust to emotion. "I began behaving like a possessive child and that's when I knew it was time to let go." But Melanie continued, "I knew many women who not only enjoyed lusty relationships with married men, they would take risks that I thought were simply immoral."

What did she think was immoral -- this woman who opted to bed a married man, with three little children no less? Well, her list ranged from having sex in the married couple's bed to engaging in unprotected sex.

It's all about competition
"John used to tell me about all the crazy things he and his wife used to do before they got married and had children," revealed Anna, 37. "So after hearing about all the adventurous sex they had, it made me want to show him what I was made of -- I wanted to give him that element of sexual excitement."

"We did it anywhere, anytime... until one of his wife's friends saw us and told his wife. Unfortunately, this only made me want him more. I guess my competitive streak took over and I wanted to win -- not him necessarily, I just wanted to win. Haven't you ever watched elimiDATE ? Do you really think the women are vying for the man?"

Nevertheless, John was clearly addicted to the sex that Anna bestowed upon him, what with her willingness to take it in any orifice and pleasure him in any way he requested. But she soon realized that even if her vagina had a little blue cape with an "S" on to it, she could never win this race.

"All the same," she admits, "I still talk about the sex that he and I had. It still gives me chills when I think about it."

That ring garners experience
Some women believe that married men have more sexual experience, as most are older and, because they've been making love to the same woman for quite a while, they have an adequate working knowledge of the female form.

"I've been dating attached men for about 10 years. They're the only men I date. I know it sounds terrible but since I never plan to marry, I'm not worried about bad karma," says business owner Sylvia, 39.

"It started out by accident. The man I was dating forgot to mention that he was married. I found out four months later by accident because he forgot to remove his wedding band one day. I didn't leave him, and anyway, he treated me like a princess more so after I found out."
When I asked if she loved that first married guy, Sylvia said, "Love? Yeah sure, for the moment. But he made me realize that I can never trust a man. So I'd rather know that he has a wife at home, rather than worry if he's going to cheat. And as well, I can come and go as I please, and he has absolutely no right to get jealous or possessive, and the second he tries to pull that crap, I walk."

"As for the sex," she continues, "it's wonderful. These guys are usually deprived or bored with their women, and I'm that exciting, ego-boosting element that they're looking for. And because they've harbored so many fantasies about sex that either their women wouldn't comply with or they would never want to do with her out of respect or fear, I provide that 'fantasy' component that they want so badly. Why would I ever give that up? After I come, they go. No rings, no strings. I'm cool with that."

More like downright cold if you ask me.

It's carnal
For some, however, sleeping with a married man isn't so great once he opts to leave his wife and start anew with the mistress. "When I first met Matthew, sparks flew, we just couldn't keep our hands off of each other," says Kim, 28, a real estate broker. "But we mistakenly thought we were in love and decided that we wanted to make our relationship permanent, so he left his wife. Little did either of us realize that the fantasy would fizzle the moment mundane elements of everyday life reared their ugly heads," she admits.

Suddenly, Matthew didn't seem as thrilling to be around, and he stopped treating her like the object of his every desire. "Sex with a married man has to remain that, just sex. Once we began a relationship, I became jealous -- after all, he cheated on his last woman. So I couldn't enjoy sleeping with him the way I used to. Needless to say, he ended up cheating on me with a woman at his office."

What's the deal?
So, women call men pigs and say that all men cheat, but it's not as though these men are sleeping with other men (that's a different article altogether). When any woman knowingly sleeps with a married man, even though I fully believe it's the married party's responsibility to remain faithful, it makes women just as swiny as their male counterparts. And don't even get me started on the amount of married women who spread themselves about.

Nevertheless, I can understand why the sex can be so great for and with attached men. But I believe that, for every man who would cheat on his woman with a vixen, there is a man out there who is content with the woman he's committed to. My advice? If you want to have an affair, meet your wife at a bar and act like strangers, then go to a seedy motel and get nasty while you ask for her name.

Deep-Voiced Men Have More Kids

If you want to have lots of kids, look for a Barry White instead of a Justin Timberlake. Men with a deep voices have more offspring, a new study suggests.

Previous studies conducted by David Feinberg of McMaster University in Canada have shown that women are more attracted to men with deeper voices, judging them to be older, healthier and more masculine than their higher-pitched rivals.

Men, on the other hand, go for women with higher pitched voices because they find them more attractive, subordinate, feminine, healthier and younger-sounding.

In the new study, detailed in a recent issue of the journal Biology Letters, Feinberg set out to see how that attraction to deeper-voiced men affected reproduction and the survival of offspring.

"While we find in this new study that voice pitch is not related to offspring mortality rates," Feinberg said, "we find that men with low voice pitch have higher reproductive success and more children born to them."

To look for any relationship between voice pitch and birth rates, the researchers studied the Hadza tribe of Tanzania, one of the last true hunter-gatherer cultures. Because the Hadza have no modern birth control, the researchers were able to compare birth rates without any outside influencing factors.

They found that Hadza men with deeper voices had more children than those with higher voices.

This relationship could give insight into the evolution of the human voices as well as how we choose our mates.

"If our ancestors went through a similar process," Feinberg said, "this could be one reason why men's and women's voices sound different."

The BEST TEN buys of the season?

The BEST TEN buys of the season? Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs make the list!
Roque Santa Cruz: Best buy in the Premier League?

Man Utd also splashed out to pick up the most promising talent, but didn't Blackburn and Birmingham also do well!

Thebuying and selling game can be treacherous. Putting your money whereyou mouth is can more often than not end up in disaster.

However for every failure there are occasional successes so howabout listing the ten best transfers since season 06-07 drew to a close.

Bakary Sagna (Arsenal) £6m from Auxerre .
Once again Arsene unearths a beauty of a signing. Pretty muchunheard of before he left France for north London, but now arguably thebest full back in the country.

Anderson (Man United) £18m from Porto.
May seem a steep fee, but could be worth a lot more if he continues impressing. Amazingly still only 19.

Fernando Torres (Liverpool) £26.5 from Atletico Madrid.
People scoffed when he arrived at Anfield for a fee many consideredpricey, but I am sure most of those doubters have disappeared now. 21goals in 27 starts tends to change people’s opinions!

Sulley Muntari (Portsmouth) £7m from Udinese.
A class act pulling the strings at Fratton Park. Playing a big part of their continued rise up the table.

Sylvain Distin (Portsmouth) Free from Man City.
Possibly the player of the year at Portsmouth. His defensive partnership with Sol Campbell has been astounding.

Martin Petrov (Man City) £4.7 from Atletico Madrid.
Chased by a number of clubs in the summer, the winger has beenawesome for the Eastlands side, creating a large number of the goalsSven’s team have scored.

James McFadden (Birmingham) £4.75m from Everton.
I was skeptical about this move at first, but the Scot could prove to be crucial in Brum's attempt to beat the drop.

Roque Santa Cruz (Blackburn) £3.8m from Bayern Munich.
Possibly the bargain of the season. Santa Cruz took the big step ofleaving the comfort of his Bayern spot and opted for a shot at thePremier League with unfancied Blackburn. The result, a goal more orless every other game, and a true team player and well worth triplewhat Mark Hughes wisely invested.

Jonathan Woodgate (Tottenham) £8m from Middlesbrough.
Yes, it’s early days but this could prove to be a very wise purchaseindeed. Juande Ramos needed some solidarity at the back and thepurchase of the rejuvenated Woodgate has already helped securesilverware.

Fabrice Muamba (Birmingham) £4m from Arsenal.
After a season on loan the Midlands side stumped up the £4m for thepermanent signature of the 19-year-old and it could prove to be thebest £4m the club has ever spent. Cool and calm on the ball and alreadyshowing why he was considered to be the next Vieira before ArseneWenger let him leave the Emirates.

The American listens in silence.

The Frenchman persists: 'Do you eat jelly with the bread??'

American: 'Of course.'

Frenchman: (cracking his bubble-gum between his teeth andchuckling) 'We don't. In France we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, thenwe put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them,transform them into jam, and sell the jam to the states.'

After a moment of silence, The American then asks: 'Do you make love in France?'

Frenchman: 'Why of course we do', he says with a big smirk.

American: 'And what do you do with the condoms once you've used them?'

Frenchman: 'We throw them away, of course.'

American: 'We don't. In America , we put them in a container,recycle them, melt them down into bubble-gum, and sell them to France .'

World New Order....

The 6 Million Dollar Babies

I just heard on E! news that Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony’s unborn babies stand to earn their parents a cool USD6 million. That's is how much some publication ( I didn’t quite catch which one but that’s not the point) if offering to feature the Anthony/Lopez twins' pictures before anyone else does.
I think there’s something horribly wrong with the world when celebrities are offered money just because they have managed to procreate successfully.
Perhaps it’s the fact that I’m feeling tired and irritable right now(I didn't manage to sleep well last night) or it could be that I’m in the mood to perch on my moral high horse but I honestly feel quite strongly about this issue. It was both disturbing and annoying to hear about this latest, ridiculous, celebrity deal.
I know the photos will help sell more mags/tabloids or whatever but give me a break! That money could help save the harimau from extinction or perhaps it could help save starving children. Heck - USD6mil can pretty much help save anything.
It hasn’t been made clear if Lopez/Anthony are planning to pocket the cash but something tells me they probably will.

I don’t envy these celebrity kids. When they sit down and think about it (which they inevitably will do one day) they’ll be forced grapple with the fact that their parents used them to add to already overflowing bank accounts.
To be fair though, not everyone is just plain greedy and/or devoid of principles. Angelina and Brad’s baby Shiloh earned her parents USD4mil but the money was reportedly donated to African children’s charities.
I hope J.Lo does something similar (although I think the best scenario would be for these filthy rich celebrities to refuse payment and just donate their own money to charity like the rest of us!)
Children deserve to be loved and protected by their parents; not exposed to the whole world for a fee. If J.Lo and Mark Anthony end up being paid for their babies’ pictures and then keep the money for themselves - I’ll think of them as nothing more than people who have ’sold’ their babies and that’s nothing less than disgusting!
I’m disappointed in you, J.Lo. You told us “My Love Don’t Cost a Thing” but now it appears that your motherly love costs about USD6million.

Paula Abdul New Video, Dance Like There's No Tomorrow

Have you guys seen Paula Abdul's new video for the song, Dance Like There's No Tomorrow. I heard about it yesterday and I had to go to to see it. I must say that the video looks good, but the song is not that great. It's obvious that her voice has been retouched on this song. I appreciate the effort but I don't think success is going to be the destination for this song.



1. A pair of black, closed-toe, two- to three-inch heels. They go with anything -- even jeans. And the heel height won't leave you crippled if you're on your feet all day. Look for leather, which will stretch and breathe the most and be the most comfortable, as opposed to other materials such as vinyl. --->need to get the high heels one

2. A pair of slimming, dark denim jeans. The cut and the waist don't matter. As long as the wash is a deep midnight blue and they fit you like a glove.---> yes

3. A V-neck cashmere sweater. A little loose, and a little plunging. What man wouldn't like to put his arms around a girl wearing this? Choose a colour that flatters your complexion -- vibrant red or ultraslimming navy or black are usually best. --->I can't believe I haven't one in my closet.. what I'm wearing along these years???

4. A pair of diamond stud earrings (real or faux). Every girl feels like a princess in these, and they add instant glamour, even to a T-shirt and sweats. ---> I don't wear earring anymore.. LOL

5. A great bra that really fits. Go and get measured; try one on and look at yourself from all angles, and make sure it does what it's supposed to do: lift, separate, support, and minimize or maximize. ---> I think I'll shop for new bra once I stop breastfeeding DS

6. Sexy panties. Lacy, leopard print, G-string. You name it. They can even be cheap, as long as they make you feel naughty under even the most conservative attire. They're an instant confidence booster, not to mention your very own dirty little secret.---> just bought a new one last nite

7. An A-line skirt. Universally figure-flattering. If you are voluptuous, keep the length longer. If you have great legs, look for a mini. The colour and fabric don't matter either -- as long as you love it. ---> black n maroon

8. A little black dress. The style -- strapless, cap-sleeved, long-sleeve -- is completely up to you. But simple and elegant is key; no froufrou touches or flashy details. You can always dress it up with accessories. ---> yes

9. A great everyday bag. One that is made well, in a good material with nice hardware. It should be big enough to carry all your essentials yet shouldn't be so big that people mistake it for luggage. Again, price is not important here: you don't have to break the bank on the latest Marc Jacobs. Just look for a style that suits you -- be it a satchel, sling or backpack.---> my Tommy Hilfiger

10. A great evening bag. A simple black satin clutch or a gold or silver beaded one goes with everything -- and adds instant glamour to even the most mundane black suit or dress. ---> got one from Aigner, never wear once

Quit smoking: Practical strategies for success

Ready to quit smoking? Experiment with these quit-smoking strategies.
Ready to quit smoking? Good for you! Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health. If you're not sure how to start, consider these quit-smoking strategies. Experiment until you find what works best for you.

Put it on paper
Consider what you don't like about smoking and why you want to quit smoking. Do you want to banish bad breath? Reduce your risk of a heart attack? Have more energy? Set a good example for your kids? Write it down. Whenever you feel the urge to smoke, take out the list to remind yourself why you want to quit smoking. It might also help to think of all you'll gain when you quit smoking, such as a longer and healthier life, and more money — and time — to spend on things you enjoy.

Seek support
Tell your family, friends and co-workers that you're planning to quit smoking. Ask anyone in your household who smokes to quit with you. Join a support group — either in person or online — for people who've quit smoking. Speak with a tobacco cessation specialist through your doctor, a local smoking cessation program or a telephone-based program. Toll-free tobacco quit lines are available in every state in the United States and many countries throughout the world.

If you're not sure you want to reach out for help, consider what the researchers say: The more counseling you receive, the more likely you'll remain tobacco-free.

Take it slow
You might start quitting by simply cutting back. Delay your first cigarette of the day, or make it inconvenient to smoke. Keep your cigarettes and lighters in the car when you're in the house or working. Smoke only half of each cigarette. Buy only one pack of cigarettes at a time. Trade one smoking break a day for a brisk walk or other physical activity. Then set a date to quit smoking for good.

Avoid smoking triggers
Recognize high-risk places and situations — and do your best to avoid them. Go places where smoking isn't allowed, such as a museum or movie theater. Hang out with people who don't smoke. At work, try the main door instead of the smoking entrance. Keep especially busy during off-work hours.

It also helps to replace old habits with new routines that aren't associated with smoking. Chew gum while you drive, or take a new route to work. Get up from the table immediately after eating. Drink water or tea instead of coffee or alcohol. Walk while you chat on the phone. Practice saying, "No thanks, I don't smoke."

Try a stop-smoking product
For help decreasing withdrawal symptoms and managing cravings, ask your doctor about stop-smoking products. Some types of nicotine replacement therapy — including patches, gum and lozenges — are available over-the-counter. Nicotine nasal spray and the nicotine inhaler are available by prescription. Other medications might be an option, too. Bupropion (Zyban) can help control nicotine cravings. Varenicline (Chantix) can decrease the pleasurable effects of smoking, as well as reduce nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

If using stop-smoking products seems like an easy way out, don't be so hard on yourself. A combination of medication and behavior changes is often the most effective way to quit smoking.

Distract yourself
When you want to smoke, call a friend, take a brisk walk or run in place. To keep your mouth busy, chew sugarless gum, cinnamon sticks, toothpicks or straws. If you can hold out long enough — usually just a few minutes — the nicotine craving will pass. Don't fool yourself into thinking that it's OK to have just one cigarette. It's not.

Stress or anxiety may increase your urge to smoke. To keep stress under control, prioritize your tasks. Consider what you can eliminate or delegate to someone else. Take a break when you need it. Breathe deeply. Stretch. Listen to your favorite music. Laugh. Exercise. Reward yourself for not smoking by doing something you enjoy every day, such as walking in the park, soaking in the tub or watching a funny movie.

Take it one day at a time
Don't worry about next week or next month. Focus on today. Every hour without a cigarette brings you one step closer to quitting for good — and freedom from an unhealthy, expensive habit.

Learn from your mistakes
If you slip — whether you have one cigarette or you slide back into your old smoking pattern — don't give up. Identify what went wrong and ask yourself what you learned from the experience. Then decide what changes can help you succeed next time.

Giggs joins centurions

Ryan Giggs has become only the eighth player to make 100 Champions League appearances after captaining the Reds in Wednesday night’s draw with Lyon, and Sir Alex Ferguson admits everyone at United is proud of the veteran winger.

The 34-year-old was presented with a silver salver before United's last 16 clash after following in the footsteps of Raul, Roberto Carlos, Paolo Maldini, David Beckham, Oliver Kahn, Luis Figo and Clarence Seedorf in passing the century mark.

“There are only a few players who will reach that milestone in European football,” admitted Sir Alex. “It’s because of his ability, his longevity, how he prepares himself to have a good lifestyle, and obviously being at a successful club.

“For me, Ryan has been an absolute model in his time with us. Even at 34 years of age we expect big, big things of him. Obviously we don’t play him in every game, but that’s natural for someone of that age. We want to play him in the games that really, really matter to our football club.

“Throughout his time with us, Ryan has always reserved his best performances for the biggest occasions. I’ve said many times about occasions at Old Trafford and the atmosphere, and the great nights
we’ve had there. They could only happen because the right type of players are playing on that stage, and Ryan has produced many great moments for us. So it’s a great occasion for him, we’re all proud of him.”

Patrice Evra started behind Giggs on United’s left side at the Stade Gerland, and the French defender admits he is delighted for his team-mate to join such an exclusive club.

“I think it is a privilege to play with Ryan Giggs,” he said. “For me I just say thanks to Giggsy because I’ve learnt a lot of things with him, he’s a great player and I’m very happy for him.”

Giggs is likely to have familiar company in the 100 club sooner rather than later, with Paul Scholes having joined Gary Neville on 98 appearances after starting against Lyon.

Farewell, Fei Fei

Lydia Sum Tin Ha (1947-2008).

Somehow, the mere thought that we will never get to see the jolly smile of Lydia Sum Tin Ha grace our TV and cinema screens again just seems to make the world a little less bright.

Sum passed away at 8.38am yesterday at Hong Kong’s Queen Mary Hospital, after a two-year battle with liver cancer. She was 61.

Sum is survived by her daughter Joyce Cheng, and ex-husband, actor/singer Adam Cheng.

Affectionately known as “Fei Fei” (Fatty) or “Fei Jie” (Fat Sis), Sum was one of the most recognisable icons of Hong Kong cinema, thanks to her rotund figure, jolly smile and iconic horn-rimmed glasses.

Born in Shanghai in 1947, Sum first joined the legendary Shaw Brothers film production studio as a child actress, and made her film debut at age 13. She then went on to appear in more than 100 movies, including some of Hong Kong’s most popular classic films such as Drunken Tai Chi, Millionaire’s Express, and It’s Mad Mad World (1987), and even directed and starred in You are Wonderful.

Although best known for her comedic roles, she was also a prominent dramatic actress, and even had a cameo in the acclaimed police drama Tiger on The Beat. Sum took a break from feature films in 1997, only to return to the silver screen seven years later with the comedy In-Laws Out-Laws.

Besides her prolific feature film roles, Sum was also a regular face on television, hosting more than 5,000 TV variety show episodes, the most famous of which was hosting the TVB variety show Enjoy Yourself Tonight.

She also starred in Singaporean English-language sitcom Living with Lydia, her first English project in her 40-year career.

The role later won her an Asian Television award in 2003 for best comedy performance by an actress.

Sum married fellow artiste Adam Cheng Siu-Chow (another prominent veteran in Hong Kong’s entertainment industry) in 1985 and had a daughter, Joyce Cheng Yan-yee two years later.

The couple divorced within a year of the birth of their daughter.

Sum had remained single ever since.

According to online reports, the actress had been having ongoing health problems since 2002 when an inflammation of her bile duct landed her in hospital. Doctors extracted 36 gallstones from her body at the time.

Subsequently in September 2006, Sum was diagnosed with liver cancer, and had one third of her liver removed. She was re-admitted into the hospital about a month ago (just before Chinese New Year), and eventually passed away peacefully yesterday morning.

Hong Kong chief executive Donald Tsang paid tribute to Sum’s legacy.

“Hong Kong grew up with her laughter. She brought us a lot of joy,” Tsang told reporters in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong performing Artistes Guild chairman, veteran artiste Alan Tam, expressed his sadness at Sum’s passing. Tam had just recently phoned Sum to wish her a happy Chinese New Year, and even made a date to share a meal when she recovered.

Lindsay Lohan bares all to recreate idol Marilyn Monroe

TROUBLED actress Lindsay Lohan has bared all to recreate the last photo shoot of her idol, Marilyn Monroe, in the latest issue of New York magazine.

Lohan wore a blonde wig, and not much else, for Bert Stern who photographed Monroe in 1962 at the Hotel Bel-Air in California - six weeks before she was found dead of a drug overdose.

Stern recreated the images with Lohan in the same hotel. See the photos here and here. (Warning: images contain nudity.)

Lohan said deciding to pose nude was easy.

"I didn't have to put much thought into it. I mean, Bert Stern? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It's really an honour," she told the magazine.

Lohan said Monroe's suicide was "tragic" and said it, along with the death of Heath Ledger from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, "are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone".

Lohan is no stranger to the darker side of celebrity, suffering numerous run-ins with police and engaging in the odd stint in rehab.

Stern told The Associated Press that he found women like Lohan and her tabloid companions Paris Hilton and Britney Spears "interesting".

"They're girls that draw attention to their notoriety and their celebrity through their behaviour," he said.

"I thought she was a natural, not at all squeamish."

Meanwhile, Frances Bean Cobain has suddenly become sexy in a shoot for Harper's Bazaar

"Knight Rider" Cast Justin Bruening, Deanna Russo, Sydney Tamiia


"Knight Rider" Cast Justin Bruening, Deanna Russo, Sydney Tamiia

Poitier and Bruce Davison Participate at the Unveiling Event Showcasing the Customized KITT Ford Mustang to Be Featured in Movie Dave Bartis ("Heist," "The O.C.") and Doug Liman ("Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "The Bourne Identity") to Serve as Executive Producers; David Hasselhoff, the Star of the Original "Knight Rider" Series, Appears as a Special Guest Star in His Original Role as Michael Knight

NBC Also Forms Partnership with Ford Motor Company That Provides for Unique Content Opportunity

BURBANK - December 12, 2007 - As "Knight Rider" -- NBC's iconic 1980s television classic that became a runaway success, comes roaring back to life on the network with an updated sequel that will air as a two-hour movie event on Sunday, February 17 (9-11 p.m. ET) -- NBC unveiled the new customized KITT Ford Mustang to be featured in the series in a press event held at NBC's Burbank Studios today.

The movie stars Justin Bruening ("Cold Case," "All My Children"), Deanna Russo ("NCIS," "The Young and the Restless"), Sydney Tamiia Poitier ("Veronica Mars," "Grindhouse") and Bruce Davison ("Breach," "Close to Home"). In addition, David Hasselhoff (NBC's "America's Got Talent") -- who starred in the popular lead role as Michael Knight for four seasons during the original series -- returns as the same character in a special guest-star appearance. Will Arnett (NBC's "30 Rock," "Blades of Glory") will provide the voice of KITT.

Dave Bartis ("Heist," "The O.C.") and Doug Liman ("Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "The Bourne Identity") serve as executive producers. NBC also has an arrangement with Ford Motor Company that provides for a unique content opportunity that makes the Ford Mustang one of the stars of the movie.

The three cars to be employed in the series include the KITT Hero -- a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR that is playing the part of the everyday Hero car with 540 horsepower; the KITT Attack -- a super high-speed version of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR Hero car that transforms into Attack mode with the help of air-ride technology and specialized body parts -- and a KITT Remote, which is a driverless Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR version of the Hero vehicle.

As the original story resumes, the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) is absolutely the coolest car ever created: its supercomputer capable of hacking almost any system; its weapons systems efficient; and its body -- thanks to its creator's work and nanotechnology -- is capable of actually shifting shape and color. Plus, its artificial intelligence makes it the ideal crime-fighting partner: logical, precise and possessing infinite knowledge. It is the ultimate car -- and someone will be willing to do anything to obtain it.

Sarah Graiman is a 24-year old Ph.D candidate at Stanford University, following in her genius father Charles' (Davison) footsteps. But when men attempt to abduct her, Sarah receives a mysterious call from KITT warning her that he's a creation of Charles, who also invented the first KITT 25 years ago -- and that her father is in serious danger.

Sarah and KITT track down her best friend from childhood, Mike Tracer (Bruening), a 23-year-old ex-Army Ranger, whom Sarah hasn't seen since he left home at 18. Having served in Iraq, Mike is now jaded and lost and initially resistant. Eventually he agrees to help Sarah and the two set out to discover who's behind the attempt to procure KITT and find Charles. Along the way, Carrie Rivai (Poitier) plays the agile yet tough FBI agent who has a long-standing friendship with Charles and Sarah. Due to those ties, she is brought into the mix to help in the search.

David Andron is supervising producer and writer. Steve Shill ("Dexter," "The Tudors"), also a co-executive producer, directs the two-hour movie from Universal Media Studios and Dutch Oven Productions.

Kungfu Dunk Review

If you are jay Chou big fans you gonna love this movie. This movie is a comedy and action.

Many compare this movie with Shaolin Soccer, but there is some different. As Stephen often follow a similar template: Chow portrays either an under-achiever who beats the odds, or an arrogant overachiever, who himself receives a lesson in humility before fighting back. Stephen Chow tends to use the underdog or rags-to-riches story to portray his character.

But in this movie Jay consistently achieve the goal. Although there is some twist at the end. Watch for it.

The cool face of Jay acting in comedy is something new. As we all know Jay look cool most of the time, but he can act in this comedy as well.

From my opinion, Jay acting is not perfect yet, I don't know because ofthe character potrayedby Jay or Jay acting is not up to bar yet. Jay look like not very comfortable in the scene

The editing of this movie seem to be poor as well. Because there suddenly skip in scene, make it look like we missing some piece.

Overall this movie is enjoyable with comedy and action suitable for all
Are Jay trying to follow Stephen footstep?

Bring on The Blues - Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney says he’ll be delighted if United draw Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter final.

The England international got the scoring underway at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as the Reds romped to a 4-0 victory against top-of-the-league Arsenal.

Minnows Barnsley and Bristol City remain in the competition, but Rooney would prefer a tussle with Avram Grant’s Chelsea.

“I hope we get Chelsea,” Rooney told MUTV. “Personally, I’d like to play them at home and try to knock them out. After that we’ll be through to the semi final and I’m sure we can take things from there.”

Rooney has twice been on the losing side in an FA Cup final and is determined to add a winners medal to his collection this season.

“The FA Cup means a lot to me. I’ve been excited by the competition from a very young age and hopefully we can now go all the way.”

United swept Arsenal aside on Saturday afternoon even though the Reds began the match missing experienced players.

“Last season we had to play all the players in every game,” Rooney said. “Today we had Paul Scholes on the bench and Ryan Giggs got a rest all together. That keeps them fresh and could be key come the end of the season.

“We were very disappointed after last week’s performance against Manchester City. Training was difficult this week and we spent a lot of time talking about the tactics and how we were going to approach the game against Arsenal. I think we got it spon on.”

The FA Cup quarter final draw takes place on Monday 18 February at 13:30 GMT.

"Won't Go Home Without You"
I asked her to stay but she wouldn't listen
She left before I had the chance to say
The words that would mend the things that were broken
But now it's far too late, she's gone away

Every night you cry yourself to sleep
Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
Hard to believe that

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

The taste of your breath, I'll never get over
The noises that you made kept me awake
The weight of things that remained unspoken
Built up so much it crushed us everyday

Every night you cry yourself to sleep
Thinking: "Why does this happen to me?
Why does every moment have to be so hard?"
Hard to believe that

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

Of all the things I felt but never really shown
Perhaps the worst is that I ever let you go
I should not ever let you go, oh oh oh

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you

It's not over tonight
Just give me one more chance to make it right
I may not make it through the night
I won't go home without you
And I won't go home without you


Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Release Date: May 22, 2008

Known Plot Thus Far: In 1957, Indiana Jones is thrust back in action, venturing into the jungles of South America in a race against Soviet agents to find the mystical Crystal Skull.

When last we saw Indy, he was riding off into the sunset in 1989's The Last Crusade, set in 1938 near the start of World War II. The new movie, due this spring, is set at the height of the Cold War in 1957, so the character has aged in real time — 19 years.

"He's teaching and having kind of a quiet life," the producer says. Once the archaeologist is thrust back into danger, the signature Indiana Jones red line tracing across the map will take him to New Mexico, Connecticut, Mexico City and the jungles of Peru.

Indiana Jones©Paramount Pictures
Indiana Jones will be out Summer 2008 actually on May 22, 2008. Other Indiana Jones movie's are Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), The Temple of Doom (1984), and The Last Crusade (1989).

Manchester Utd 4 - 0 Arsenal

Update : 17 Feb. 2008
Wayne Rooney delivered a virtuoso solo display as Manchester United outclassed Arsenal in the FA Cup fifth round.
Rooney headed United in front from close range after 16 minutes and Darren Fletcher provided another headed finish from Nani's cross four minutes later.

Michael Carrick set up Nani for a third as United turned on the style.

Arsenal's Emmanuel Eboue was sent off after 48 minutes for a foul on Patrice Evra before Nani was the creator again as Fletcher headed United's fourth.

England coach Fabio Capello was in attendance at Old Trafford and showed his appreciation for Rooney's brilliance by applauding his England striker when he was substituted with 20 minutes left.

United left Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs out of their line-up, while Arsenal kept Emmanuel Adebayor and Mathieu Flamini on the bench - and the Gunners suffered most from the changes.

Rooney returned from suspension after missing the defeat to Manchester City - and made up for lost time by destroying Arsenal with a blistering first-half display.

He was on the mark after 16 minutes when a Nani corner was only half-cleared, and when Anderson headed the ball back into the danger area Rooney was perfectly placed to divert a close-range finish past Jens Lehmann.

Fletcher deservedly doubled the lead four minutes later when Nani opened up Arsenal on the left flank and crossed for the Scot to head in at the near post.

Rooney continued to terrorise the Arsenal defence and could have added to his goals tally before United made it three seven minutes before the interval.

Carrick split the Arsenal defence wide open, leaving Nani to control and calmly shoot past Lehmann.

Rooney had already tested Lehmann again before Arsenal's misery increased after 48 minutes when Eboue was rightly sent off for a raised boot in a tackle on Evra.

The Arsenal defender seemed reluctant to leave the pitch after referee Alan Wiley brandished the red card, but he had no excuses because it was an horrendous challenge.

Rooney was in almost unstoppable form, tearing the Arsenal defence apart almost at will, shooting wide after beating Kolo Toure and then bringing a fine save from Lehmann - all in the space of seconds.

And with 16 minutes left, United got the fourth goal their dazzling football deserved when Nani floated up a perfect far post cross for Fletcher to head in at the far post.

Arsenal, who have enjoyed taunting outclassed teams in the past, were not enjoying getting a taste of their own medicine and William Gallas was lucky to escape punishment for an ill-disciplined kick at Nani.

Substitute Louis Saha almost added a fifth with two minutes left but keeper Lehmann - who had been blameless in the defeat - saved well again.

Episode 5 : The Wildboars lose again...

Oh The Wild Boars team lose again. This time, both teams had to pull a truck at both ends and whichever team crosses his finishing line first, wins the challenge. The Tiger Kings were rewarded to a $500 shopping spree on eBay for their victory.

Zidov was pretty pissed off at the reward. He remarked that in his country, if you get rewarded $500 for pulling a truck, everyone will be pulling trucks all over the country for as long as they had to. Pretty true. These Contenders have been very pampered. Even the average Singaporean don't get to spend like this. Lucky guys. Zidov's from Switzerland by the way.
The Tiger Kings were pretty spontaneous in their deliberation this time round. Zach, Soren and Dzhabar wanted to fight. As a spanish tradition, as suggested by Pitu, three matchsticks were cut into different lengths and whoever draws the longest matchstick gets his fight.
This episode, Soren draws the longest matchstick, and he choose to fight with Alan. Soren is a good fighter. No wonder the Thais say he's got talent and gave him the name Mongtongkong. He's a really technical guy. We don't see much power in his punches and kicks but when it comes to technique, he is way up there.
He injured Alain with an elbow to his right forehead and the fight had to be stopped as the cut was too long and deep. The result was a technical knock out to Soren. Alain has got respect from his team mates to be a fighter who has a lot of mental power. Given his disease (Crohn's disease), Alain had to have 13 inches of his intestines removed. This sometimes affected his fighting capabilities but have duly helped to increase his threshold for pain. To be fair, Alain was sick for two weeks prior to his fight and it was impressive in itself to have been able to withstand that many knees to his stomach.

I hope in the next episode The Wild Boars team will win the challenge. They have a good fighters.
