Appearing in a very tiny yellow and pink bikini, Russian-born model Irina Shayk has made the highly coveted cover of the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
According to a few words scattered here and there among the five big pages of pics, Irini stated that she was 25 years old and some other stuff about herself.
Then you had all the other runners-up and some yadda yadda yadda about each one of them.
Apparently among this year's winners, according to the back cover and every auto mechanic you talked to, there was four blonds, three brunettes and a redhead. One pic of a runner-up didn't show her head.
Another former grease monkey told us that he was fired after reading aloud Shayk's comment that she liked the push-up bra style of the swimsuit. "They told me they didn't want to know that."
In other news, another bookstore, Shelves & Nooks, has declared bankruptcy and will be closing after a huge sale of books, magazines and newspapers according to one I usually read for free there while having a cup of coffee.
