Amanda Knox Flies Under the Radar as Seattle Freelancer

Bar Refaeli Tops Annual Maxim Hot 100 List

Refaeli told Maxim that she was “truly honored” to have won, but she might want to reconsider that statement. She did beat out those lovely ladies mentioned above, which is great. But a cartoon, Stephen Colbert and Amanda Knox — yes, the woman who maybe murdered her friend — also made the Hot 100 List, so Refaeli should probably take the honor with a grain of salt.

Maxim’s editors, however, were excited that readers chose Refaeli. She “puts the ‘promise’ in the Promised Land,” they explained. We have no idea what that means, but it sounds like a compliment.

Vivid Entertainment Makes Job Offer to Amanda Knox

Vivid Entertainment co-chairman Steven Hirsch is back at it again.

After making a sex tape offer to Casey Anthony (and withdrawing it shortly thereafter), Hirsch wants Amanda Knox to serve as a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles adult entertainment company.

“We would like to offer her the opportunity to be our vivid.com spokesperson and represent the studio at trade and retail events,” Hirsch told TMZ.com. “This would involve no nudity or sex.  Of course we would welcome talking to her if she wants to pursue this direction, but the decision is totally hers to express.”

Welcome back to the United States, Amanda! As you can see, little has changed in four years.
