    AMERICA'S 'TOP HOOKER'


    "Top Hooker" is an unscripted competition series that puts a diverse group of 10 competitors through a series of "mind-blowing" challenges to determine who is the best in the business — and only one can come out on top to collect a $30,000 prize.

    "Top Hooker" is on Animal Planet. And it's about fishing.

    The world's best anglers are pitted against each other for out-of-the-box fishing challenges; including... capturing fish using only their mouths, zipline fishing and catching fish that are nearly invisible to the naked eye.

    "Top Hooker" will be hosted by blue-collar comedy veteran Reno Collier and premieres on Animal Planet on Sunday, June 2 at 10 p.m.

    JASON COLLINS' FORMER FIANCEE HAD NO IDEA HE WAS GAY

    The longtime girlfriend/partner of Jason Collins says she had no idea that her fiancé, was actually gay.

    The 12-year NBA veteran wrote recently:

    "When I was younger I thought I needed to marry a woman and raise kids with her. I kept telling myself the sky was red, but I always knew it was blue."

    His girlfriend at the time only found out about Collins orientation a couple of days before the world did.  At the time of their breakup, she (Carolyn Moos) says: "Jason gave a bunch of BS reasons for calling it quits" ... and she could never understand what went wrong, until now.

    She said:  "It's very emotional for me as a woman to have invested 8 years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him. So this is all hard to understand."

     A T-SHIRT YOU CAN WEAR FOR 100 DAYS WITHOUT WASHING OR IRONING

    Manufacturers claim they have invented a shirt that stays clean even after 100 days of wear.

    Wool & Prince says the shirt resists odor so effectively that it even smells fresh after being worn during rigorous exercise.

    They also say it doesn't need ironing because it is made of wrinkle-free material that can withstand even the roughest of treatment.

    They sent researchers around the world wearing the shirts doing everything from backpacking in the Andes to dancing in sweaty nightclubs in New York City to test their design.
