“She was so bad — when I’m talking about so bad, I mean, so bad it was ridiculous,” Fauria said.
Added Fauria: “So stiff. You can tell why she’s a virgin, for whatever that’s worth. She can’t deal with intimate contact. … Stiff as a board. You could tell she was uncomfortable with like just staring into her partner’s eyes, just the physical contact, she was in a skimpy little outfit that wasn’t a track outfit …”
Jones, who said, “I make no excuses, it was awful,” after her performance, was the first contestant voted off the show.
– More details have emerged about the situation actress Daniele Watts was involved in last week in Los Angeles that led to a police confrontation.
Watts became upset when a police officer approached her and her boyfriend and said he was responding to a 911 call about a lewd act being committed in public. She refused the officer’s request to provide identification and implied that she was being mistreated because she’s black.
On Wednesday, TMZ.com released witnesses’ photographs that show Watts and her boyfriend in a silver Mercedes with the door open, sitting in a sexually compromising position (Watts acknowledged to police that the couple was making out). One witness told TMZ Watts’ breasts were exposed as she straddled her boyfriend, and an employee in an office building adjoining the sidewalk where the car was parked asked the couple to stop before police were called.
“Daniele, don’t ‘F’ with TMZ,” Merloni said, “because they will get you every single time.”
Said Fauria: “If you’re going to have sex in the car, wouldn’t you go in the back seat or go around the corner, find a place where nobody’s there?”

– Wynn Resorts won a bid for a license from the Massachusetts Gaming Council to build a casino in the Greater Boston Area. Steve Wynn’s proposed resort defeated a bid from Mohegan Sun that would have put a casino at Suffolk Downs.
The resort will have more than 150 table games, 3,000 slots, a five-star hotel and a mall.
Said Callahan: “I’m going to guess that none of the windows in the high-rise hotel will open.”
The proposed plan is for the $1.6 billion casino and resort to be built on the polluted waterfront of Everett. The hosts said it will take a while for the project to be completed.
“Maybe four or five years from now before this is ready,” Dennis said. “They have to clean up all of the oil and stuff.”
Joked Callahan: “This is where all of the athletes stay when the Olympics come here.”
Added Minihane: “That wouldn’t be so bad. They’ve got the swimming right there. In the river.”

– Prior to Tuesday night game in St. Petersburg, Fla., the Rays honored Derek Jeter on the Yankees captain’s final trip to Tropicana Field. However, things deteriorated a few hours later.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who was ejected after arguing with the umpire and then yelling at Geltz after Jeter’s HBP, voiced his frustration with the Yankees being hit five times in the past four games against Tampa Bay (with no Rays being hit during that time). Jeter was the victim twice, while Chase Headley missed four games after taking a ball off the chin.
“I don’t know what they expect; you hit five of our guys in four games, you don’t think we’ll be pissed?” Girardi said. “I’m tired of my guys getting hit and where they’re getting hit. I’m tired of it. If you’re going to pitch inside, learn how to pitch inside.”
Rays manager Joe Maddon said he understood the Yankees’ point of view.
“I really don’t blame the Yankees for being upset right there,” Maddon said. “We’ve hit a couple of their guys — obviously none of it intentional. It’s called baseball. It happens once in a while.”
Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.
Jeter’s slump continues, as the shortstop — who was benched Monday — is without a hit in his last 26 at-bats after his 0-for-2 effort Tuesday. He was down 0-2 in the count when he was hit, and the fading Yankees lost the game 6-1. New York is 1-5 on this road trip, scoring just seven runs in the six games.
Said Phelps: “I think our team as a whole is frustrated about a whole lot of stuff right now.”
Rihanna, who was the victim in a domestic incident involving singer Chris Brown in 2009, had recorded a special version of the song “Run This Town” for the network. CBS did not use the video last week, instead spending more time discussing the Rice situation.
Rihanna took that as an insult, and she lashed out at the network via Twitter, writing: CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, [expletive] you! Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this.
CBS senior vice president of communications Jen Sabatelle released a statement shortly thereafter, reading: “Beginning this Thursday, we will be moving in a different direction with some elements of our ‘Thursday Night Football’ open. We will be using our newly created ‘Thursday Night Football’ theme music to open our game broadcast.”
Roc Nation, which owns the rights to the song, followed up by saying it revoked the rights for the network to use the song.
“Due to the misuse and misrepresentation of Rihanna’s name and participation in connection to CBS’ ‘TNF,’ CBS was not allowed to license and utilize the song ‘Run This Town.’ Roc Nation made the decision to not grant the song’s usage,” the company said in a statement.
Gordon, suspended for the season after failing a marijuana test (although that ban is expected to be reduced after the league and NFLPA finalize the new drug policy), also will have to perform community service and had his driver’s license suspended.
The Pro Bowl receiver, who led the NFL with 1,646 yards receiving last year, was arrested in July in Raleigh and charged with driving while impaired after going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.
ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On Sept. 17, 1998, which Red Sox closer set an American League record by recording his 39th consecutive save in a 3-2, 10-inning victory over the Orioles?
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I don’t worry about Brady. There’s other areas I might concern myself with. But when it comes to Tom Brady, I know his work ethic, I know his focus level, and I know he’ll be fine. He hasn’t looked the way we all expect him to look. But it’s two games. And it’s something that the rust eventually wears off, he’s going to gain more confidence in his players and maybe in himself, and he’ll be fine.” – NBC Sports NFL analyst Rodney Harrison, during a Tuesday interview on Middays with MFB
