Kevin Federline reality TV show? (i just puked in my mouth)

Us Magazine has confirmed that Britney Spears' soon-to-be ex, Kevin Federline, 28, is in talks to develop his own reality series.

House of Carters Executive Producer Kenneth Crear tells Us exclusively that he is currently working on producing a reality show with K-Fed.

"It's true," Crear tells Us, adding that he just started negotiations with partner Billy Rainey and Kevin Federline's manager on Monday. "We are in talks about this. Kevin came to me because he liked the way I shot the House of Carters series and the way I made Nick Carter look real and trustworthy. I gave people a different perspective of him and made people really respect him."

Crear also confirms that they are looking at "one or two" different networks, but insists the project is just as the beginning stages.

"Kevin doesn't dislike or hate Britney," Crear tells Us. "The show will show him for who he is but [will] not smear her. It was just a marriage that didn't work out, but it will show who he is beyond that."

Crear also says they are looking at an eight episode deal that will be shot over three months, but they haven't started shopping it around yet. Article here.

Newlyweds lost for 5 days, slept in cave w/no food

It was supposed to be a scenic one-hour jaunt to look at a waterfall in Castle Rock State Park. Instead it turned into a five-day ordeal in the wilderness of the Santa Cruz Mountains for two San Jose newlyweds who couldn't find their way back to their car.

Arnaud and Maria Stehle were forced to seek shelter in a cave for two nights and spend another two nights in a hollowed-out tree, authorities said.

The couple didn't have the clothing or equipment for such an adventure. Both had left their coats in the car and they had no food, and Arnaud, a 29-year-old Silicon Valley engineer, was wearing shorts. But the two emerged from the back country relatively unscathed Thursday after a massive search.

"They were cold, tired and hungry, but in pretty good spirits," Santa Clara County sheriff's Lt. Mark Eastus said. "It's a very pleasant outcome for how many days had elapsed."

The couple survived on stream water and determination before a search and rescue party found them about 1 p.m. Thursday, Eastus said. The two were taken to a local hospital to be treated for dehydration and as a precaution because of possible hypothermia, Eastus said.

The couple got lost after deciding to go look at a waterfall in the 5,200-acre park riddled with wildlands and perched on the highest ridge of the Santa Cruz Mountains, relatives said.

They hiked down steep terrain to get to the bottom of the falls, said brother-in-law Vaughn Paladin, a San Jose resident who helped search for the couple.
Unable to climb back up, they hiked along the creekbed in search of a route back to the trail, he said.

But they encountered even steeper terrain and ultimately became lost.
The couple was found after a rescue dog -- a golden retriever -- picked up their scent; rescue team members shouted out their names, and eventually Maria Stehle's voice could be heard. Ropes were needed to pull the couple up from their perch about 300 yards from the trail, said Paladin, who was on hand when the rescue party brought them out.


"I will never make fun of the French again," said Paladin, referring to Arnaud's French heritage. "Arnaud was a lot tougher than I thought; he walked out of there in shorts." Article here.

Snake 'eating' away at dudes hand, gets tasered

A police officer used a Taser to subdue a python that had wrapped itself around a man's arm and would not let go.

Steve Crilly, 47, was feeding a rat to the 8-foot-long albino Burmese python, which belongs to his daughter, when it when it bit his left hand and wrapped tightly around his left arm Wednesday night, Uniontown patrolman Ray Miller said.

"The snake was on his arm and was eating his hand," Miller told the Herald-Standard of Uniontown for Friday's editions. Crilly "was very calm, considering there was a good bit of blood," he said.

In an effort to free the man without permanently harming the snake, Miller said he shot the animal with his Taser, a gun that sends an electric shock through wired darts. The snake immediately went limp and released its grip.

Crilly was treated by paramedics at the scene for what Miller called "a nasty cut" on his hand. The snake was uninjured and remained at the home, Miller said. Crilly did not immediately return a message left at his home Thursday by The Associated Press.

Miller said the incident was unique, but not especially scary. "Snakes don't bother me," he said. Article here.

14-year-old killed for throwing egg at SUV?

Police are searching for the driver of an SUV who chased and fatally shot a 14-year-old boy he thought had thrown an egg at his vehicle early yesterday.

Danny Crawford, died of a single gunshot wound in the upper body, according to Franklin County Coroner Brad Lewis. Danny’s body was found in an alley. The shooting took place about 12:30 a.m.

The eighth-grade student at Westmoor Middle School was with two other boys, one of whom threw an egg at an SUV, according to one of the boys, whose parents did not want his name used.

The boy said Danny did not throw the egg. He said when the SUV stopped, he and Danny fled down an alley. The driver, he said, followed while the third boy ran in another direction.

The boy said the driver stopped the SUV, got out and began to run after them. The boy said while he ran through one back yard, Danny found himself trapped in the alley. He said when he got to his house near Terrace Avenue, he heard six shots.

Danny’s house is about a mile from the alley where he was shot. A woman who answered the door at the house yesterday said Danny’s father did not want to comment. Article here.

'Spray-on condoms' hitting the market in 2008?

German sex educators plan to launch a spray-on condom tailor-made for all sizes. Jan Vinzenz Krause from the Institute for Condom Consultancy, a Singen-based practice that offers advice on condom use, told Reuters Thursday the product aimed to help people enjoy better and safer sex lives.

"We're trying to develop the perfect condom for men that's suited to every size of penis," he said. "We're very serious."

Krause's team (spraykondom.de) is developing a type of spray can into which the man inserts his penis first. At the push of a button it is then coated in a rubber condom.

"It works by spraying on latex from nozzles on all sides," he said. "We call it the '360 degree procedure' -- once round and from top to bottom. It's a bit like a car wash." Krause said the plan is to make the product ready for use in about five seconds. He said it would function more effectively as a contraceptive because it would fit better and not slip.

However, before the new condom can be sold in shops, the firm must ensure that the latex is evenly spread when sprayed, as well as optimize the vulcanization process. Krause hopes the high tech condom, which will be available in different strengths and colors, will on the market by 2008.

He said the spray can would likely cost some 20 euros ($26) as a one-off purchase. The latex cartridges -- sufficient for up to 20 applications -- would cost roughly 10 euros, he said.

Krause said he had hit upon the idea when considering the difficulties some people faced using condoms, and drew inspiration from spray-on plasters now used in medicine. Article here. See also, previous post, "A liquid condom? What the heck?"
