Roberta Mancino Model

Roberta Mancino Model - Roberta Mancino is an extreme athlete, and has been skydiving since 2001, at which point it chose her as her profession!

She does everything from skydiving to B.A.S.E. jumping, has logged over 4,000 jumps and is the Free Fly record holder. On top of all of that, she is absolutely gorgeous!

That explains why she is a favorite among Men’s Fitness readers. That and the fact that she has also done four jumps in the buff!

She just did an interview with the men’s magazine, where she talked about skydiving, training for competitions (I didn’t even know there were skydiving competitions, and her parachute failing. Yea, it’s happened five times! Zero is enough for me!

My favorite question was about training for skydiving. Who knew?! She says,

Carnival Cruise Ship Splendor Stranded After Fire

Carnival Cruise Ship Stranded After Fire - Carnival's 113,000-ton cruise ship, Splendor, has been dead in the water since early morning, when a fire in the engine room left it stranded.

The cruise line announced that tugboats were en route to the scene and that the Coast Guard had sent cutters and aircraft 200 miles south of San Diego, where the vessel is located.

Still, the 3,299 guests and 1,167 crew members can't be very happy. Carnival said air conditioning is off and guests only have access to cold water and cold food.

That much Gerry Cahill, president and CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines, admitted in a statement.

"Conditions on board the ship are very challenging," he said. "And we sincerely apologize for the discomfort and inconvenience our guests are currently enduring."

We haven't been able to locate any reports from inside the cruise liner. The Navy did release a photograph of the ship out at sea.

Details are still sketchy, but sources say that authorities searched his tour bus ... and found an unspecified amount of marijuana.

Wiz was subsequently arrested as he attempted to board his tour bus.

A fan-filmed clip of the arrest was uploaded to Youtube shortly after, showing the rapper being cuffed outside his tour bus and being carted away by police.

The 23-year-old rapper (real name: Cameron Jibril Thomaz), whose current hit "Black and Yellow" is in heavy rotation around the country, is known for his love for weed. In a past interview, Wiz boasted about spending around $10,000 a month, just on marijuana.

But he does beam when he talks about his fiance, Lauren Miller, whom he’s been dating for six years.

Miller is a writer who has also appeared in small roles in “Observe and Report” and her boyfriend’s films “Superbad” and “Zack and Miri Make A Porno.” Rogen (who’s looking pretty good after losing a lot of weight for “Green Hornet”) has described Miller as “a girlfriend who is far prettier than I should have.” Awww.

That may be why he fumbled a bit on the proposal. After he bought the ring, he told O’Brien, he got nervous he was going to let the surprise out too soon, and he did – he surprised himself and his girlfriend when he popped the question while she was half-naked and looking for something in their closet.

“I’d already kind of started, and I was like ‘Oh man, her [bre…
