Courtney Love is Dead

Happy Friday everyone! The weather in Climax, Michigan is a sunny and very relaxed 68 degrees today. Traffic on the 405 is bumper to bumper, so uh... whatever you decide to do in your car while stuck in traffic is your business, not mine.

In the news today, a 24 year old woman claims an injury she got on the Wii Fit Board turned her into a sex addict. Apparently she fell on the board, injuring a nerve which leaves her in an almost constant state of arousal. Doctors have diagnosed her as having "Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome". Amanda reports that even minor vibrations, such as from a food processor, turns her on.

Ok I fail to see where this is a bad thing. *Looks at my Wii Fit, wondering if I can accidentally on purpose fall on the board* Oh you're still here? he he. Well let's move on to celebrity news, shall we?

Courtney Love decided she no longer wants to go by that name. Instead she plans to go by Courtney Michelle.

In an interview with NME (via BBC), Courtney says, "Courtney Love is dead. We've all decided we don't like her any more. We love her when she goes onstage, but I don't need her in the rest of my life. The name Courtney Love is a way to oppress me." Courtney Love is now going by the name Courtney Michelle. Her birth name is Courtney Michelle Harrison.


Apparently, not only is Courtney Love dead, but the artist formerly known as Courtney Love has decided to refer to herself in the 3rd person.

Speaking of famous people that do not go by their given names, foxnews released a list of people with their real given names.

Charlie Sheen

Carlos Irwin Estévez adopted his dad Martin's stage name of Sheen. His brother, Emilio Estévez, did not.

Wynonna Judd

Wynonna Ellen Judd was born Christina Claire Ciminella.

Portia de Rossi

Amanda Lee Rogers adopted the more exotic name of Portia at a young age.

Woody Allen

Woody is really Allen Stewart Konigsberg. At the age of 17 the director legally changed his name to Heywood Allen.

Natalie Portman

Portman is her stage name; this starlet was born Natalie Herschlag.

Larry King

The talk show host was born Lawrence Harvey Zeiger. He reportedly acquired his new name after a radio boss said that Zeiger was too ethnic and difficult to remember. Minutes before air, Larry chose the surname King from a newspaper ad for King's Wholesale Liquor.

Winona Ryder

Winona Laura Horowitz doesn't have the same ring.

Bo Derek

Bo was born Mary Cathleen Collins.

Miley Cyrus

The story goes that the teen star changed her name from Destiny Hope to Miley because of a childhood nickname.

Whoopi Goldberg

The former Caryn Elaine Johnson explains the stage name Whoopi: "If you get a little gassy, you've got to let it go. So people used to say to me, 'You're like a whoopee cushion.' And that's where the name came from."
She adopted the surname Goldberg because her mother reportedly felt Johnson was not "Jewish enough" to make her a star.

Kirk Douglas

The acting legend was born Issur Danielovitch.

Ralph Lauren

Do you think he would have built his clothing brand as Ralph Rueben Lifshitz? At the age of 16, Ralph's brother Jerry changed their last name from Lifshitz to Lauren.

Pat Benatar

The rock star was born Patricia Mae Andrzejewski.

Morgan Fairchild

The actress was born with the decidedly unglamorous name Patsy Ann McClenny.

Elton John

Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, the singer reportedly chose the name "Elton John" in homage to Bluesology saxophonist Elton Dean and Long John Baldry.

Would Brian Hugh Warner scare teenagers' parents and wear black lipstick? Probably not.

I think it's time for a WTF moment right about now.

Thanks Chris!

Hey, don't judge. It's a lifestyle choice. I wonder if she ever braids them. Or uses shampoo & conditioner to keep it nice and silky smooth. I'm guessing, combing it out would hurt just a little.

And that's all the time I have for today. Have a super duper weekend. Watch out for any of these people who go by names that aren't their real names. You can't trust those kind of people. *avoids eye contact with everyone* Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go Wii in my exercise pants. Oh, and one last thing...

The sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog" uses every letter of the alphabet.

-OMG Facts



  1. De-lurking...but not much to say.

    My husband heard the story about the Wii chick. He told me he was going to buy me a Wii so I could "jump him" more often. ;)

  2. Scaarlet, thanks for de-lurking. :) I've been trying to figure out how she did it. My luck I'd probably break my vajay jay and would have to remain celibate the rest of my life. *thud*

  3. yippee one of my pics (that i found not of me *teehee*)

  4. Yes! And thank you for the pic. It was a perfect WTF pic! xoxo
