Kate Upton goes weightless for Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue
Who knew zero gravity could be so sexy? But Kate Upton, 21, knows. In the 50th annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, which hit the stands Tuesday, the fabulous blonde is shot floating like a feather in a specially equipped Boeing 727 owned by Zero-G Corp. of Arlington, Va. “Upton flipped, floated and modeled in true weightlessness — as if in outer space,” read a Zero-G press release, according to Page Six. “Upton bounced and soared through the plane for the cameras.” This is Upton’s third year in a row in the swimsuit issue, though this year she doesn’t appear on the front cover.

Stritch drops F-bomb on 'Today' show

Apparently speaking of nervous-nelly TV execs, the 89-year-old Broadway legend snapped, “They think in —.” (Just fill in the blank.) Meaning — who knows? But you can imagine how the show’s producers jumped.
