- There’s been a possible break in the Chen Guangcheng case as Chinese authorities claim they will allow Chen to apply to leave the country:
Chinese legal activist Chen Guangcheng has been offered a fellowship at a university in the U.S. and can be accompanied by his wife and two children, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement Friday.
“The Chinese Government has indicated that it will accept Mr. Chen’s applications for appropriate travel documents,” Nuland said in the statement. “The United States government expects that the Chinese government will expeditiously process his applications for these documents and make accommodations for his current medical condition. The United States government would then give visa requests for him and his immediate family priority attention.”
- Supermodel Linda Evangelista claims the billionaire father of her 5-year-old child asked her to have an abortion when she was pregnant. Evangelista is currently in court with French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault [both pictured left] looking for child support:
Pinault, 49, who is currently married to actress Salma Hayek, denied that charge but testified he told Evangelista that “if she were to have a child (they) might not have a relationship.”
With that a four-month relationship, in which he said the couple only actually saw each other seven days, came to an end.
- The newest plastic surgery fad: Stem cell makeovers:
It is a medical claim that sounds like science fiction. Walk into a plastic surgeon’s office for a face-lift and walk out roughly four hours later with a whole-body makeover that required no incision and leaves you with no scars….
… [A] skin-care specialist from Ohio… underwent a stem-cell makeover in which fat was removed from her waist via liposuction. The fat was then spun in the lab to concentrate its stem cells and, hours later, injected into [her] face and breasts.
Price tag? 10-15K for the 4 hour procedure.
