Hayden Panettiere is officially engaged to her super tall boyfriend, boxer Wladimir Klitschko. While it was known she was engaged, she hadn’t made a public statement. She sure fixed that. She announced the engagement on Live with Kelly and Michael, but gave us all a dash of Britney 2001 by draping a snake over her shoulders. I guess that’s one way to get people to look at your hands. According to USA Today, she wore the boa to freak out Michael Strahan. That’s when Kelly said,
“I’m sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finger,” said Kelly. “I’m not sure if you want to announce anything … Does that signify anything? Is that a promise of something?”
Panettiere responded coyly, “It might be … I mean, I think it speaks for itself.”
Kelly then got more direct, asking, “Are you engaged?” and Hayden replied, “I am.”
Congrats to the adorably height mismatched pair!

Ke$ha showed us her butt on the red carpet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards so it seemed unlikely that anyone could top that awful WTF-ery, and yet, it was managed. Who did it? Click to find out. But first (pun intended), Jennifer Morrison’s butt:

Hayden Panettiere doesn’t particularly emanate straw chewin’, banjo playin’ vibes, but she plays a country singer in Nashville and that’s good enough for Cotton! They’ve cast her in their new ‘Fabric Of Our Lives’ ad campaign, where she’ll give a country rendition of the company’s theme. Well… that’s special.
The new campaign has a budget of around $20 million, according to a Cotton Inc. spokesman. The commercials featuring Panettiere in various scenes — choosing an outfit in her walk-in closet, having fun at a nightclub, shopping at a shoe store, walking her dog — will begin airing as 15- and 30-second spots on TV and select Internet outlets beginning Monday.
“For this commercial we wanted a celebrity with an all-American, girl-next-door quality,” said Ric Hendee, senior vice president of consumer marketing for Cotton Inc. “Hayden had the look and the country cross-over sound we were looking for.”
“The commercial celebrates American style and American originals like country music, cotton denim and, of course, U.S. cotton growers, who are the number-one exporters of cotton to the global textile industry,” Hendee said.
I’ve always thought it was a bit bizarre that cotton – a fabric, for God’s sake – promotes itself as a business. I get that cotton is an industry like many other things, but it’s always struck me as slightly bizarre, for some reason. Also, the fact that they are effectively saying that the white, largely confederate flag bearing part of America is their target market is a bit weird, but whatever. America, right? Go USA! Go cotton! I love t-shirts! (Too much?)
Hayden’s cute and making the most of that TV money, so I say go for it, girl.

“Very few people know, and she isn’t wearing her ring publicly yet,” adds the friend of the duo, who first parted ways in May 2011 after two years of dating.
Since getting back together, the actress, 23, and the athlete, 37, have refused to confirm their relationship. (Despite multiple PDA-packed outings — including a cuddly March 24 courtside appearance at a Miami Heat game — Panettiere said they were “just good buddies” in mid-January).
Privately, however, the 5-foot-2 knockout and the 6-foot-6 heavyweight champ are eager to legalize their match. Says the source, “Looks like a summer wedding!”
BTW did anyone else love the Amanda Knox Lifetime movie, starring Ms. Panettiere as Amanda Knox? So good.

So, we don’t generally talk about Hayden Panettiere around here, partially because Heroes is no more, and partially because we’re just not into sex with giants anymore (and apparently, neither is she), but that photo up there really gives us pause and makes us think of Hayden’s status as a Hollywood staple. I mean, you’re totally right when you say that she’s totally not, but will you just look at how adorably hot she is?
Let’s talk about it for a second—that hair and that little peek of cleavage and the cutesy fashion sense that she’s got going on? How did she ever figure out how to deal with excess beltage (i.e., when you have a belt that you just can’t bear to part with—or you’re borrowing someone else’s belt—that’s just way too big and you have this gigantic flap hanging from your midsection that looks like a withered third arm)? Can we just go ahead and crown Hayden here “Hottie of the Day”? Because WOW. Girlfriend is seriously smoking.

Oh, I also forgot to mention in the previous post – the super-cute Hayden Panettiere was visually assaulted by a nude streaker (and really, is there any other kind?) who was, admittedly, pretty hot. And that accent, woo. I’m a girl that really gets off on accents – all kinds of accents, really, except for Boston accents (though back-country New England accents are awesome) and New York accents (sorry!), and this guy was off the charts.
Anyway. The video is kind of NSFW if your workplace frowns upon quick, blurry photos of decent penis and completely fine male ass, but pretty much OK for everywhere else.
