The Rock Sideswipes Fan’s Truck, Remains Adorable

the rock instagram

I can’t say I love The Rock enough, because my love for him is just that powerful. He’s the sweetest sweetie that ever sweeted (YOU HEARD ME) and no one will convince me otherwise. It’s not a sexual attraction or anything like that (he’s so not my type in so many ways), but he’s just such a genuinely nice, decent guy and I don’t know anyone who DOESN’T like him. Anyway, this story will make you like him even more! Basically, he was driving to a set yesterday morning when he swiped some random dude’s truck because he was too busy singing to whatever song he was blasting. He stopped, saw the guy coming back to his car, and tried to give the guy money, but the guy wouldn’t accept it. Instead, they took a pic together and Dwayne told everyone on Instagram what happened.

Here’s what he wrote:

Here’s a fun story to start your week off… I’m driving to set in my pick up truck – music blasting – I’m singing away like I’m having a one man party in my truck – then I hear a loud BANG. What the hell..? Look in my rear view and see I sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror. First thing I thought was, “Aw shit.. someone’s not gonna be happy..”. I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene. Just as I got out of my truck a guy was walking across the street to his truck. I said “Sir, is this your truck?”. He stopped and stared at me for a good 5 seconds, looked around his neighborhood, looked back at me and “Yes it is. Why?”. I said “Well, sorry to tell ya I sideswiped it and knocked the hell outta your mirror and may have done even more damage. You give me your info and I’ll leave you mine and I’ll take care of everything”. He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said..”Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?”. I said “Yup”. He broke out into a huge smile and said “Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!”. I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we’re both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol’ crazy buddies. I checked back in with him a few days later and he refused to accept any money and said he fixed the damage himself. Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing. Life is funny cause you never know who you’re gonna run into… and sure as hell never know who’s truck you’re gonna sideswipe while driving to work.

I mean, come on. That story is adorable. More celebrities – shit, more HUMANS – could take a note from The Rock’s book and treat people with the kindness and respect they deserve more often. The world would be a much better place for it.

The Rock Sets World Record For Most Selfies Taken In 3 Minutes

Ugh, y’all know I love The Rock and think he’s the ultimate sweetheart (in a completely nonsexual way), so I love being able to post stories about him, since they’re always so positive and uplifting, even when they’re silly, like this one. Dwayne wanted to set the world record for most selfies taken in 3 minutes, so he embarked on the challenge while on the red carpet at the London premiere of San Andreas, which I would actually totally see.

The Guinness Book of World Records was on hand to hand him his award, and whole thing was captured – and posting to Dwayne’s Instagram to celebrate!


To be fair, I feel like this can’t possibly be the first record he’s broken. What about the record for the most cod eaten in a day? Is that a thing? Because it should be. Also, I have to ask: why do people insist on carrying their iPhones around without cases? Seeing it raises my blood pressure every time. Maybe people just aren’t as clumsy as me, but I swear I would have smashed my phone to pieces if it weren’t for my case (which is a Speck case, for the curious).

The Rock eats 36 ounces of cod a day

the rock

I’ll basically take any opportunity I can get to write about The Rock, because I think he’s awesome. Don’t even bother disagreeing, because it’s pretty much fact. Anyway, here’s something that’s hilarious but probably not all that surprising: he has to eat a lot to stay as buff as he is. Duh, right? But if you want to know something more specific, here’s a little factoid for ya: The Rock eats 36 ounces of cod every day.

In a piece for Muscle & Fitness magazine, The Rock broke down his 4,000 calorie per day diet, and holy shit, does he eat a lot. Obviously he needs to with the amount he works out, but I was vaguely shocked at the breakdown! You ready?

Meal 1

  • 10 oz cod
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 cups oatmeal

Meal 2

  • 8 oz cod
  • 12 oz sweet potato
  • 1 cup veggies

Meal 3

  • 8 oz chicken
  • 2 cups white rice
  • 1 cup veggies

Meal 4

  • 8 oz cod
  • 2 cups rice
  • 1 cup veggies
  • 1 tbsp fish oil

Meal 5

  • 8 oz steak
  • 12 oz baked potato
  • spinach salad

Meal 6

  • 10 oz cod
  • 2 cups rice
  • salad

Meal 7

  • 30 grams casein protein
  • 10 egg-white omelet
  • 1 cup veggies (onions, peppers, mushrooms)
  • 1 tbsp omega-3 fish oil

Seems pretty intense… and yet, delicious. Plenty of protein, no sugar or processed shit and some nice veggies. We should all be eating like The Rock… only maybe like, 1/4th the amount.

Casper Smart Is So Gross: The Halloween Edition

That’s what the love bears, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart, wore for Halloween. Because love, you guys. Because love.

Is anyone else a little shocked that they didn’t dress up as literal love bears? That would have been an awesome idea. They could have gotten bear suits and hot glued little hearts all over them, and then Jennifer could cling to Casper all night while he had his hand slipped in her purse. Because that’s what kind of love bears they are.

Meanwhile, here’s a much, much more awesome costume:

That’s a photo of The Rock as The Incredible Hulk, obviously. Also obvious: the glory of this costume.

Ok, ok, here’s one more:

That’s Paris Hilton as – wait for it – Honey Boo Boo Child. Isn’t that awful? She doesn’t even have a bottle of Red Bull and Mountain Dew. F-, Paris Hilton, that’s your grade for Halloween.

But what did you guys get into last night?

Happy Saturday, Everybody!

A photo of The Rock

I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like this is going to be a great day.  It looks like it might be somewhat sunny later, I get to play with my puppies, I have super glittery fingernails that keep catching my attention from my keyboard. There’s just some kind of magic in the air, so naturally, I want to share that with you.  And the only way I know how to do that is by posting a picture of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson having a ball down at the Splash Mountain.  Is that adequate?

Heroes? But Where Was Tila Tequila?

CNN Heroes 2009

Last night CNN hosted their Heroes 2009 gala and just about everyone you could think of was in attendance. In fact, it’s easier to think of who wasn’t there than who was there. Britney, Paris, Lindsay… I guess they must be totally over because they were no shows. What about our tampon-tease Tila? Where was she? Surely she is a hero of sorts. Who did make it? The Rock, Carrie Underwood, AnnaLynne McCord who seems to be absolutely everywhere these days. Check out the photos below and let me know in the comments who you think was the best dressed and most deserving to be there. I know my hero, the electric (you heard me! Electric!) Debi Mazar was there, looking fierce as hell per usual.
