Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– A Florida woman said she spent $20,000 for a third breast so that she will be unattractive to men.

A 21-year-old massage therapist who goes by the name Jasmine Tridevil said she had the procedure because, “I don’t want to date anymore.”

“She should have saved the money,” Dennis said.

Added Callahan, “Aren’t there other ways to make yourself unattractive to men? Get your hair cut, get a tattoo, don’t brush your teeth?” Callahan also suggested she could talk about her fantasy football team, a round of golf or a dream she had.

Further reports indicate the story might be a hoax. The woman appears to be using a fake name and is pushing a self-produced reality show. The only photos of her are ones she provided.

“I am totally calling B.S.,” Callahan said. “Do you think you can find a doctor to do that?”

– Kira Kazantsev, who last week was crowned Miss America, was expelled from her sorority in college last year for abusive hazing of pledges, according to multiple reports.

Kazantsev was head of recruitment for Alpha Phi at Hofstra University when she was ousted for bullying after pledges allegedly were physically and emotionally abused. She was barred from attending any sorority events.

Said Callahan: “I’d let her paddle me.”

– A television reporter in Alaska admitted to secretly running a marijuana business and that she would be leaving to run the business full-time and push for the legalization of the drug in the state. During an on-air report, Charlo Greene said, “As for this job, well, not that I have a choice, but [expletive] it, I quit.”

“How are you going to [sign off] when your day comes?” Minihane asked Dennis.

Interjected Callahan: “In chains.”

– Omar Gonzalez, the Army veteran who scaled a fence and ran into the White House, had 800 rounds of ammunition in his car in addition to two hatchets and a machete. His family said he is suffering from post-traumatic stress.

Minihane, as he did Monday, said the White House does not seem like it would be a great place to live.

“It seems like a prison,” Minihane said. “I know it’s big, but it seems like a prison.”

– Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti broke his silence Monday and accused ESPN of biased reporting in its scathing piece that accused the team of influencing New Jersey authorities and the NFL in regard to Ray Rice‘s domestic violence incident.

In a statement to fans before the press conference, Bisciotti admitted the team “did not do all we should have done,” but he assured that “there has been no misdirection or misinformation by the Ravens.”

Bisciotti also placed blame on Rice’s camp for attempting to spin the story to the player’s benefit. He insisted the team expected a suspension of more than two games after the initial report of Rice knocking out his wife in a hotel elevator on Feb. 15.

“The accusations didn’t jibe with what we know is fact,” Bisciotti told the press, denying his organization pushed for leniency for Rice. “I don’t think the league would take too kindly to us badgering them. I didn’t really care. If it was going to be a precedent-setting [suspension of] four or six games, I would have told Ray not to appeal it.

“I expected four or six games, and I was surprised as everybody else that it was two.”

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Bisciotti, who took ownership of the team 14 years ago and rarely meets with the media, said this is the biggest crisis he’s faced as owner.

“When your integrity is being questioned, it’s pretty humbling,” he said. “Last week it was our competence being questioned. Now it’s our integrity.”

Bisciotti acknowledged the team “failed” by not looking at the second videotape, which shows Rice’s knockout punch, and he promised to learn from the mistakes.

“The question is, What are we going to do next year as a team, and what is the league going to do next year or the next time this happens?” he said. “I would lose faith in the league if this happened next year and their response is unsatisfactory. If I’m asking people to give me another shot, then I certainly would ask you to give the league office another shot.”

– Former Patriots fan favorite Danny Woodhead‘s season is over, as the Chargers running back broke his lower right leg in the first drive of Sunday’s win over the Bills when he was hit by defensive tackle Kyle Williams in the ankle.

“He means a lot to the organization,” coach Mike McCoy said Monday. “His love for the game, the way he plays, his love for his teammates, the way he practices, great to be around. He’s one of the first guys in the building. He only knows how to do it one way. He’s a true professional. We’re going to miss him, but we’ve got to move on.”

Added McCoy: “It’s a brutal business and it’s tough and injuries are a part of the game, unfortunately. But it means so much to him. That’s the toughest thing. The first thing he said to me after the game was, ‘Coach, don’t worry. I’ll be back and I’ll be back stronger than ever. I promise that.’ I can’t wait to get him back out here.”

Woodhead is in his second season with the Chargers after three productive seasons with the Patriots. Last year he rushed for 429 yards and two touchdowns and caught 76 passes for 605 yards and six TDs.

– NBA commissioner Adam Silver acknowledged Monday that his league has been paying close attention to the issues facing the NFL and is working to avoid similar problems.

“We learn from other leagues’ experiences,” Silver said. “We’re studying everything that’s been happening in the NFL. We’re working with our players’ association. We’ve been talking for several weeks and we’re going to take a fresh look at everything we do.”

According to the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, a player faces a minimum 10-game suspension for a conviction of a violent felony.

“We have in place the appropriate mechanisms for discipline, although we’ll take a fresh look at those as well,” Silver said. “But most importantly, it’s education, and it’s not just the players, but it’s the players’ families. That’s what we’re learning, too.

“We have to take these programs directly to the players’ spouses, directly to their partners so that they’re aware of places they can go to express concerns, whether they’re anonymous hotlines, team executives, league executives. And we’re consulting experts. There’s a lot to be learned here. It’s a societal problem; it’s not one that’s unique to sports.”
