Let's start things off today with the best news of the week - RICKY GOT KICKED OFF OF PROJECT RUNWAY!!!!! Oh happy day!! What's amazing is that this is the first time this cry baby did not shed a tear all season. What a punk! Last night's challenge was to create an outfit for the lovely lady wrestlers of the WWE!

While everyone really went for the challenge, Ricky used the worst color, Orange, on his olive skin toned wrestler and basically made a bathing suit. While others failed at the task like Romi and Sweet Pea, Jillian and Christian killed it! But what was super awesome was Chris, who was able to come back earlier on in the season after he had been Auf'd won it. Chris' design was practical, seemed super WWE style and his "diva" LOVED IT! And so did the panel. I am so glad he is finally getting the recognition his hard work deserves. Here is the winning outfit and the designer.

Next week, I think they will be going on their extended field trip, a la a trip to Paris, or something. It's getting super close this time around and I can't wait to figure out who makes it to Bryant Park!!!!!

And now for the rest of the news:

  • + Billy Joel plays one last show at Shea Stadium. Joel will be playing the last live performance in the stadium on July 16th of this year. The METS will be moving to a new stadium adjacent to Shea for their 2009 season. Joel will now join the club of the infamous performers who have rocked out Shea in the past, like the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. I am sure it will be costly, but this will be worth it!

  • + Speaking of the Beatles, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has passed away at age 91. Maharishi, who developed the Transcendental Meditation movement, was well known for his impact on the Beatles in their later years. He also aided Donovan to growth within his spirituality. Maharishi will be mourned by many of his followers in the Transcendental movement, but his passing is not looked upon as tragic thing to them.

  • + Rolling Stone breaks down the Britney Spears meltdown. Some of the revelations that RS RSturned up is that she had breast implants as a teenager, she cheated on Timberlake and her family worked her like a dog when she was a child. What a mess.
