The change, finalized in December, eliminated a requirement that federal agencies consult with experts about potential effects on endangered plants and wildlife before allowing projects to go ahead.

Is This David and Victoria Beckham in 35 Years?

Becks1

70-year-old British magician Paul Daniels has fought back with humor at tabloids who attempted to embarrass his wife Debbie by publishing unflattering photos of them on a beach vacation. He and his wife have posed in Closer magazine in a mock parody of a recent Emporio Armani underwear ad by Britain's most famous tabloid target, Victoria and David Beckham.

That ad, AFTER THE JUMP...

The Telegraph reports:

"In the accompanying interview, Daniels declares that the couple's private life is every bit as steamy as this picture suggests. 'You don't expect the lustful passion of the early days, but we haven't let it die. We're still passionate. What can I say? We like sex,' he said. McGee confided that 'one of the secrets to our marriage is that we make each other laugh every day.' Daniels added: 'That and my sexual ability. Debbie says we'll stay married until I get it right.'"

The Beckham ads have also been imitated by British Olympic swimmer Mark Foster and parodied by British comic James Corden.

Victoria Beckham Still Holding Gay Man Hostage

Victoria

She tells Italian Vanity Fair:

"I love women. I like them as friends, as interesting people to speak with. But I love gay men. I always say it. Inside me there is a gay man who wants to come out! With heterosexual men I have nothing in common – excluding my husband, brothers and father, you understand."


David Beckham Running Out of Real Estate for Tattoos

Beckham

David Beckham has fed his addiction to ink, the Sun reports:

"The new marking on his [inner] left arm is a biblical proverb written in Hebrew. It reads: 'My son, do not forget my teaching but keep my commands in your heart.' A source revealed: 'Victoria doesn’t think David should have any more tattoos and tried to stop him having another. She likes his tatts but wants a bit of his skin to be left, yet David went ahead with it anyway. She is worried he is hooked and she doesn’t know where it will all end. He is a very healthy bloke. He doesn’t smoke, barely drinks and looks after his body very carefully. But his addiction is tattoos. So while his insides are as clean as a whistle, his outsides are quite the opposite.'"


Cruises and Beckhams to be 'Married' in Strange Ceremony

Cruise_beckham

This is really off the creepy deep end:

"Tom Cruise is to merge his family with Victoria and David Beckham’s in a special ceremony. The ‘Valkyrie’ actor will hold the bizarre service – during which the families vow to be brothers and sisters and exchange heartfelt speeches - at his wife Katie Holmes’ New York town house. The gesture serves as a Thanksgiving present from Tom - who has two adopted teenage children, Isabella and Connor, with ex-wife Nicole Kidman and a two-year-old daughter, Suri, with Katie - to the showbiz couple. A source said: 'Tom and David have been friends for years and they and their families spend a lot of time together. This year Tom wanted to make a special gesture that would show how much he appreciates their friendship and he thought this would be the perfect way.'"

The couples shared carriage rides and pizza this weekend.

The Secret to the Beckhams' Beautiful Skin

Because some people like nothing more than to see celebrities get sh*t on:

The Daily Mail reports: "Victoria, who has long battled problem skin, puts her new clear complexion down to a bizarre new beauty regime involving bird poo. And it seems David has been getting involved too. It has emerged that the stylish couple have been indulging in beauty treatments to improve their skin. Victoria, 34, has been regularly indulging in £100 Geisha Facials, using a paste made from nightingale droppings, to combat acne she has suffered since her teens. A pal told Closer magazine: 'When Victoria was in Japan recently she was admiring the local women’s clear skin and discovered it was down to these facials. She was intrigued and when she got back to the US she found that some New York beauty salons now offer the treatment. She tried it and loved how great her skin looked. She also uses a cream derived from nightingale poo at home.'"
