1. Tom Hanks is the best. Really.
Imagine waking up after a big night out… and discovering pictures of Hollywood actor and 90s room-com leading man, Tom Hanks on your iPhone. You’d think you were still drunk.
But that’s exactly what happened to the young man pictured.
Tom Hanks (as in THE actual Tom Hanks) was having a drink with a friend, when he noticed this young man passed out at a nearby table. Hanks walked over to make sure the guy was okay, and noticed his smart phone lying on the table… So he took a few happy snaps, and put the phone back into the young man’s pocket.
And that’s why you should always drink responsibly, lest you miss your chance to meet an Oscar winner… and remember it.

3. Real Housewives in Spanx war. Pre-emptive strike over elasticity of waist bands likely any day.
Sara Blakely, founder of shapewear brand Spanx, has launched a lawsuit against Heather Thomson, founder of Yummie Tummie over a slimming singlet design.
Thomson issued a ‘cease and desist’ letter against Spanx in January stating that the brand stole Yummie Mummie’s belly-slimming singlet, which is a patented design.
“We contacted Spanx by letter [through legal counsel] on Jan. 18 to notify them that they were infringing on my patent ideas and we asked them to cease and desist. Spanx then asked for a [one-month] extension to be able to do their own due diligence…They responded on Feb. 14 saying they didn’t think there was any patent infringement and requested another extension,” Thomson told Women’s Wear Daily.
Blakely responded in a statement to WWD: “Spanx was making shaping camisoles long before Yummie Tummie. We have no further comment. The papers filed in court provide our position at this time.”
