Sterger ditches her implants
Gaither High grad and college football poster girl Jenn Sterger reveals in the new issues of Cosmopolitan that had her nationally famous breast implants removed and discusses why she did it. Was it possibly to ruin every male FSU applicant's fantasies? "It wasn't a health decision; it was more of a personal one," Sterger told ESPN. "For years, a lot of my critics have attributed any success that I've had to a great plastic surgeon, and I never once really argued with them. … My implants got my foot in the door, but I truly don't believe that they are the reason I am still around." No, of course not. Everyone knows it was actually her sparkling personality that got her photo shoots in Maxim and Playboy. "To be honest, in the months prior to my surgery I couldn't help but start to feel like the elephant in the room," she said. "I knew what everyone was thinking, and I simply got tired of being typecast in life and my work. They started costing me more work than they were actually getting me, so I knew that they had kind of run their course."
Model dated Sean Penn
We've said before that Natalie Portman may have been Sean Penn's rebound girl after a third try at divorce from Robin Wright, but now model Jessica White says she was the one who was out with the Oscar winner less than a month after he and Robin split. The 25-year-old, pictured, confirmed on Tyra Banks' talk show Wednesday the couple was together, but have since split up. "Is Sean Penn your boyfriend? I saw you with him," Banks asks White. "Can I say that? Is that okay, is that too much?" To which she responds, "No, it's not too much." Tyra points out White was seen holding hands with Sean in September, and exclaims "She's dating Sean Penn!" But, oh, no — "No, I didn't say that," White answers. "(We) used to. Past tense."
Rihanna dating 90210's Tristan?
We're closing in on a year since Chris Brown savagely attacked Rihanna, so it must be about time to hear if she's ready to date again. Forget the Justin Timberlake rumors; the New York Daily News says she's taken a shine to 90210's Tristan Wilds. The 20-year-old actor showed up at a party Rihanna was hosting over the weekend at her L.A. home before leaving for London, and guests noted the sparks were immediately noticeable. "She likes him a lot, and it shows," a source says. "From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up."
