It's getting hot in here, so Megan Fox is taking off all her clothes!

Well, sort of. The sultry actress stars in a new Brazilian commercial for Brahma beer in advance of the famously wild Rio Carnival, which begins February 9.

In the Portuguese-language ad, Fox flaunts her svelte postbaby body while winking and dancing along with a crowd of revelers. Then she takes off her top … only to transform into someone decidedly less sexy.

Luckily, Fox transforms back to her gorgeous self. And she doesn't show an ounce of baby weight after having given birth just a few months ago. She and husband Brian Austin Green welcomed son Noah on September 27.

Word is that Fox and her hot bod will make an appearance the first weekend of Carnival as part of her duties as a Brahma spokesperson!

Jamie-Lynn Sigler is a bride-to-be! The actress announced on Twitter Monday, January 28, that she is engaged to Washington Nationals infielder Cutter Dykstra.

"So this just happened . . ." Sigler, 31, wrote with a picture of herself showing off her huge diamond engagement ring while riding in a car with her new fiance. "She said yes!!" Dykstra, 23, also tweeted with the same picture.

The actress' rep confirms the engagement news to Us Weekly and a source tells Us that Sigler is "over the moon."

"Jamie couldn't be happier. Cutter is the perfect guy for her," the source adds. "Although they have only been together for a year, they both know that this is it for both of them. They are both on cloud nine as are their families and friends."

Sigler and Dykstra, who is the son of former Mets star Lenny Dykstra, went public with their romance in March 2012. This will be the second marriage for the "Sopranos" star. She was previously married to her manager A.J. DiScala from 2003 to 2005.

Global 2013: Women’s most romantic dates

If you could package up all the elements of a romantic date and sell it, you’d make millions. Everyone wants an absolutely perfect, over-the-top experience that makes your pulse race, your heart swell, and your senses come alive — but it’s not that easy to pull off. The most romantic dates are often the result of alchemy; they combine good timing, planning, execution, luck and a little bit of magic to produce a memory that lasts a lifetime.

Recently, I asked women to tell me about their most romantic date memories. From viewing a spectacular sunset high above the city to boldly reclaiming romance after a lengthy illness, listen as these ladies let us in on the secrets that made these moments so unforgettable:

“My meeting with the boy next door in Paris netted us both a new relationship”
“I’d been looking forward to my overseas trip so much,” says Maryland resident Patricia, 32. “My friend Janelle and I had planned to visit Paris for three days and then take the train to stay with my sister in London. At the last minute, Janelle got sick and couldn’t travel. I was torn about visiting Paris alone. I didn’t speak French; Janelle’s fluent and was going to be our translator… but I’d already paid for both the plane ticket and the hotel, and my sister was expecting me in London. A little voice inside me said: Do it. It’s an adventure. You never do anything alone anymore. So off I went, and the first night, I was terrified. I felt very alone and troubled by the language barrier. As I lamely attempted to order lunch at a bistro in the Marais district on the second day, a man about my age who was eating lunch by himself while intently reading something on his iPad interrupted me. In perfect French, he told the waitress what I was trying to order. I thanked him and we started chatting. Turns out, he’s a teacher from Baltimore who lives 30 minutes away from me and happened to be visiting friends in France and Germany for a few weeks. He asked me if I’d like to have dinner that night, and I said ‘yes.’ He was really cute, we flirted up a storm, and all of a sudden during dinner, I just fell in love with Paris,” admits Patricia.

“After 15 years, I was reunited with my college sweetheart”
“His email came from out of the blue,” recalls North Carolina native Sarah, 39. “But there it was, a note from Jimmy (my college boyfriend) writing to see how I was doing, ask if I was planning to attend our 15-year college reunion, and also fill me in on the news that he was recently divorced. I’d been in love with Jimmy, but after college, we broke up and went our separate ways — me to New York City to work in the publishing industry; him to Raleigh, NC, where he opened a landscaping business near where I lived shortly after leaving New York. We had mutual friends and kept in touch [with each other] indirectly. He married and had two children; I didn’t, but I’d had a couple of long relationships, both of which were now over. But the idea of meeting Jimmy again at the reunion sounded too cliché to me; these things never work, and it’s always a disappointment because you can’t recapture the past.”

“Watching the sun set over Seattle made me feel like I was in a Hollywood movie”
“My most romantic date ever started with a picnic and ended high above the city, watching the sun set over Seattle,” says Mary, 28, who left her hometown in Oregon because she wanted to discover love and excitement in a big city. “I’d met Patrick online and we’d had two dates already. We decided that for date #3, I’d choose the first activity, he’d choose the second, and we’d surprise each other. I decided on having a picnic at Pike Place Market and brought a blanket, cups, utensils, and a basket so we could load up on goodies from the market and take them to a grassy area not too far away. It was so much fun picking out fruits, cheeses and breads with him, exploring, trying things, talking for hours on the blanket… then came his turn.”

“We found ways to reconnect on the road to nowhere”
“I’d gotten to the point where romantic gestures seemed rote to me,” says Washington native Suzy. “It’s Valentine’s Day, get the flowers; plan a dinner for the anniversary… nothing bad, but it was all just so expected. My husband Bill and I had been married for 15 years, and I think you get either lazy about connecting — or, in our case, acting a little too by-the-book. Bill and I had been working really hard for several months, and I think he knew I’d grown tired of being over-scheduled. Before my last birthday, he told me very cryptically to be prepared for a day trip. We dropped the two kids off at my sister’s house, and then the fun began.”

“Her joy in making me happy made this my favorite date ever”
“My girlfriend Melissa knew I’d been dying to see K.D. Lang, my favorite singer, in concert,” relates Tina, 38. “So she got two tickets to her Wolf Trap outdoor theater performance in the Virginia countryside. She took me to dinner beforehand, and she was more excited than I was, I think. Seeing my girlfriend so excited to do something nice for me was deeply romantic. It was a hot summer night, and we held hands during the show. Getting to experience a night with my favorite performer and my favorite girlfriend ever just made it over-the-top special for me.”

“Celebrating getting back to normal was the highlight of our marriage”
“I’d had an awful year, just the worst,” says Marylander Carrie, 43. “I’d had breast cancer, and the treatments — which took a toll on me physically and emotionally — ended in late January. I was not an easy patient. I wasn’t one of those tough chicks who grin and bear it. I was really upset, and my husband of 10 years bore the brunt of my anxiety (with 100% grace I might add). About a month after my treatments ended, I surprised him by getting all dolled up, making his favorite dinner, and opening a bottle of champagne like it was a combination birthday/Valentine’s Day celebration. It was neither, but it was my comeback! I felt strong and healthy, and I wanted to thank him for all he’d done to make that possible, all the dinners he’d made, and all the times he’d sat with me when I was feeling lousy. It was our most romantic date ever because we’d triumphed over something terrible and were able to smile, laugh, love and celebrate again… together.”

Global 2013: Facebook on Collision Course With Google on Web Searches

Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook

After years of collecting photos and personal data from its billion-plus members, Facebook Inc. (FB) Tuesday unveiled a search tool that sifts through people's profiles—and pushes the social network deeper into Google Inc.'s (GOOG) home turf.

The two companies are vying to become the primary gateway to the Internet. Google has long served as a destination to find websites and information; Facebook, to share gossip and photos with friends. But those distinctions are increasingly blurring, and billions in advertising dollars are at stake.

The social network said Tuesday it will enable members to conduct complex queries related to their friends' profiles, such as "tourist attractions in France visited by my friends."

In doing so, Facebook is attacking Google's core strength and its most lucrative product—search—in a bid to convince people they might not need to use Google to find information.

Google generates the majority of its $40 billion in annual revenue world-wide from selling ads on its search engine. In the U.S., Google was projected to make more than $13 billion in search-ad revenue, or 75% of the entire market, in 2012, according to research firm eMarketer Inc.

Google's repository of information remains unmatched. It said it has indexed 30 trillion unique Web pages across 230 million sites.

Having witnessed Facebook's rise and anticipating its move into search, Google built its own social-networking service, Google+, in 2011 to obtain data about specific individuals by name, their personal interests and the identities of their friends.

A Google spokesman declined to comment.

But Facebook has a far larger social network and a sizable head-start after spending years encouraging its members to add photos and all sorts of personal information to their profiles, from basic data like location and interests to more sensitive details such as religion and romantic status.

Much of that data is now searchable using Facebook's new "Graph Search" feature after more than a year in development. Facebook began rolling it out Tuesday as a test to a limited number of users. For Web searches that Facebook can't deliver, the queries are served by Bing, the search engine from Facebook partner Microsoft Corp. (MSFT).

Facebook's move into search could disrupt a number of other Internet businesses, such as Yelp Inc. (YELP), LinkedIn Corp. (LNKD) and Inc. (AMZN), which people use to find local places, business connections and products, respectively.

Amazon and LinkedIn declined to comment. A spokesman for Yelp, whose shares dropped more than 7% in the wake of Facebook's announcement, wasn't immediately available for comment.

"I don't think one query will take down a whole business today, but (many of) these businesses have to be worried because they are social in nature," said Brian Blau, a Gartner analyst.

Facebook didn't announce any business initiatives connected with the new capability, which won't initially be available on mobile devices—where a growing number of users are tapping into the service.

But the product will likely open moneymaking opportunities down the road for Facebook in the form of search advertising, as the company works to boost its revenue following its botched initial public offering last May.

Facebook currently makes most of its revenue by selling small graphical, or display, ads on its site.

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that Graph Search could help Facebook make more money, but demurred on when the company might capitalize on those opportunities.

"This could potentially be a business over time, but for now we've really focused on building out this user experience," Mr. Zuckerberg said at the product's launch event at Facebook's Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters, adding that the company has no specific targets for making the search service more widely available.

Investors didn't appear to be surprised by the news, which followed days of speculation online that Facebook would announce a search tool. Facebook's shares, which have risen more than 75% since their September nadir, fell 2.7% to close Tuesday at $30.10.

Global 2013: Oprah on Lance Armstrong: 'He Did Not Come Clean in the Manner I Had Expected'

Oprah Winfrey's interview with cyclist Lance Armstrong, in which the seven-time Tour de France winner confesses to using performance-enhancing drugs, was not the intense emotional bloodletting the OWN host was expecting.

On "CBS This Morning," Winfrey said Armstrong "did not come clean in the manner I had expected, adding that her production team was "mesmerized and riveted" by some of his answers.

"I think the most important questions and answers that people around the world have been waiting to hear were answered," she said.

The two-and-a-half hour interview -- extended over two days, to be broadcast on Thursday and Friday -- took place in Austin, Texas. Winfrey said she had 112 questions prepared.

"I felt that he was thoughtful. I thought that he was serious. I would say that he met the moment," she said, adding that "we both were pretty exhausted" after the interview.

On Monday, Lance Armstrong apologized to the staffers of his former cancer charity Livestrong Foundation. While the disgraced bicyclist stopped short of openly admitting his use of banned substances during his Livestrong visit, he did apologize for endangering the organization and disappointing its staffers, a source told the AP.

Armstrong, a survivor of testicular cancer, founded Livestrong as the Lance Armstrong Foundation in 1997, but stepped down as chairman and board member last year, after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency stripped the cyclist of his Tour de France wins and banned him from competition for allegedly using performance-enhancing drugs.

The cycling legend has denied the allegations, but did not contest the USADA's decision. A source told the AP that Armstrong will admit to doping in the interview, his first since being stripped of his titles and banned from the sport.

Global 2013: Lindsay Lohan film ‘The Canyons’ is a train wreck

What got off to a rocky start met with dubious, watchful eyes is now meeting the general consensus of low expectations.

Indie flick "The Canyons," starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen (yes, two Es), is quickly becoming the brunt of Internet jokes.

A first clip of the ill-fated flick -- a seemingly dark spoof on former MTV reality show "The Hills" -- proliferated on the web in recent days, garnering jeers.

In the nearly-three-minute monstrosity, a confused and disheveled Lohan (as Tara) awakens in a sun-filled, modern hillside Southern California mansion and begins looking for her cell phone. The entire sequence is a display of poor acting and less than zero suspense.

Global 2013: Sarah Jessica Parker's Role Cut From Lovelace

After stepping in for Demi Moore in "Lovelace," Sarah Jessica Parker's role has been cut from the film.

According to Entertainment Weekly, directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman say they chose to alter when the film ended, picking 1980 instead of the planned 1984 - when Linda Lovelace became associated with Parker's character, famed feminist activist Gloria Steinem.

"You never want to make that call," Friedman told the mag.

"But she was a pro," Epstein added.

But could SJP's take on Steinem make it on to an extended DVD cut for the film?

The filmmakers told EW that they are still seeking distribution for the film about the legendary adult film star (it debuts Tuesday at the Sundance Film Festival), and have yet to figure out DVD details.

Back in February, Parker spoke to Access Hollywood about stepping into the role left vacant, after Moore sought treatment for her health and exhaustion issues.

"It was difficult because, obviously, the circumstances are not ideal," the actress said at the time. "I obviously conveyed that to the filmmakers [and] that I was aware and I was sorry for the reasons that they had to reach out to me. Also, of course, the somewhat daunting task of playing somebody with very little time [to prepare], who was obviously such an important person in the women's movement, but also played such a pivotal role in Linda's life."

Adding, "And to do it well and properly and not an impersonation, but rather a complete person with not a lot of screen time and not a lot of preparation."

Global 2013: Star Wars Movie From Zack Snyder?

The mystery behind director Zack Snyder's reported involvment in a new "Star Wars" project is taking on a Sith-like secrecy!

Vulture first reported that the "300" and "Watchmen" director was developing a new "Star Wars" movie that was loosely based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 classic "Seven Samurai" (a favorite of George Lucas), and would be a parallel, stand-alone film with the upcoming planned trilogy.

But then his rep told The Hollywood Reporter otherwise.

"While he is super-flattered because he is a huge fan, Zack is not involved in any way with the new 'Star Wars.' He is currently in post on his two films, 'Man of Steel' and '300: Battle of Artemisia,'" the director's rep said in a statement to THR.;_ylt=Am7kPCK__mz3nduHkqekdfEr.Bx.;_ylu=X3oDMTRxM3JsN2dmBGNjb2RlA3ZzaGFyZWFnMnVwcmVzdARtaXQDTmV3cyBGb3IgWW91IE1peGVkIExpc3QEcGtnAzgwMDRjMWE2LTRlNWEtM2RhNC05YTNlLWUxZDdjM2MxZjNjMARwb3MDMQRzZWMDbmV3c19mb3JfeW91BHZlcgNiY2Q1YTc4MS01ZjJhLTExZTItOWZmOC1mNzcyNDNjNjlkOTU-;_ylg=X3oDMTE2Z2ppM3RwBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdAMEcHQD;_ylv=3

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kidman is asked about that most taboo of topics -- her ex-husband Tom Cruise and the religion that’s become synonymous with his name: Scientology.

Global 2013: Kim Kardashian Admits to Fertility Issues, Calls Pregnancy a ‘Pleasant Surprise’

The fairytale world Kim Kardashian seems to live in might not have always been a dream come true.

The 32-year-old reality star revealed to “Today” show host Savannah Guthrie this morning that, like her little sister, Khloe Kardashian Odom, she’s struggled with fertility issues.

“Khloe has been very open about her fertility issues and I think I was always really kind of quiet about mine, and I have similar issues, and so it was a pleasant surprise when so many doctors were telling me one thing and then the opposite happens," she shared. "That’s an exciting moment; you can’t plan for things like that. So I think it's just such a blessing knowing my circumstances."

While this is the first we’ve heard about her problems getting pregnant, it begs the question as to whether she and Kanye West had been secretly trying to start a family long before he made the big announcement at his December 30 concert in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Either way, she’s certainly excited about her little bundle of joy with the 35-year-old rapper, due in July. One thing she’s not so excited about? The fact that she’s still going through a bitter divorce battle with her ex-husband, Kris Humphries.

While she’s hoping her 72-day marriage to the Brooklyn Nets baller will be far behind her by the time the stork arrives, she admitted that there is no guarantee.

“As much as I would like to be in a perfect world where I was divorced… you can’t plan for anything like that,” she said. “I can't speak for anyone else [about why Kris hasn't signed]. It's a process. ... It's happening, hopefully."

Divorce drama aside, Kim is moving full speed ahead and said she and her main squeeze are “really happy and content” and ready to join the parenting club.

Just don’t expect these two to walk down the aisle anytime soon. "[Marriage], it's something that we talk about, but I think it's just right now [we're] focusing on the baby," she said. "What I've learned in life is – I was always such a planner, and ... you think your life is going to be a certain way, and the best surprises just happen when you don't plan."

So there you have it – Kim Kardashian has “no plans” for the future other than reveling in baby bliss, but one has to wonder if momager Kris Jenner has something else in mind. Only time will tell.

Global 2013: Jennifer Lopez Expresses Worries

Jennifer Lopez is not oblivious about what her 18-year age difference with boyfriend Casper Smart could mean for their future together.

J.Lo tells People for their cover story this week how Casper, 25, “helped [her] heal” after her divorce from Marc Anthony. However, for the first time the “Dance Again” singer acknowledges she has doubts at times about their relationship.

"I ask him, 'Why don't you go find a young girlfriend and get out of here? What do you want with me?' And you think, 'How long is this gone be?' You think, 'Okay, in 10 years I'm going to be like this and you're going to be like that' and … men at that age are … I think all different things,” Lopez, 43, tells the mag. “The truth is we don't know what's going to happen. We're loving this moment right now. We make each other happy."

Lopez’s relationship with Casper certainly isn’t her first romance to make headlines. The “Parker” actress was of course once engaged to Ben Affleck and infamously dated Diddy.

"I don't regret those things – that's who I am," Jennifer says about her high-profile relationships. "But at least now I'm at a point where I have to recognize that these choices and things that happen are partly because of me and my decisions and I have to be more careful. So I am being more careful."

The Golden Globe Awards could have posed a potentially awkward situation for Lopez, with three exes — Affleck, Diddy, and Bradley Cooper — all in attendance. But the singer says on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in an interview set to air Wednesday that she was unfazed by it all.

“I see them a lot,” J.Lo responds when asked whether it was awkward to all be in the same room. “We’re in the same business. We run in the same circles.”

Lopez even gave Affleck a standing ovation when he took home the prize for Best Director for “Argo.”

“It was a great movie. And, we got you know, a lot of like… they were really hard on us in the press when we dated back in the day. On movies and things like that,” Lopez continued. “So it was a nice moment. It was a nice to see him have that moment. I was really happy for him.”

With Smart on her arm Sunday night omg! saw first hand how Lopez was able to handle her exes with ease. Lopez, Smart, and Diddy were all spotted together at the Weinstein bash and even kept the pleasantries going late into the night at CAA’s super private after-party at the Sunset Tower Hotel.

Lopez has certainly has a lot of topics on her mind leading up to the release of her new film, “Parker,” co-starring Jason Statham, out January 25. With the new season of “American Idol” beginning tonight, she admits to a bit of nostalgia about her former judge’s chair. “I am going to miss it,” she tells DeGeneres. “I love what I am doing but I am going to miss it. I just had a good time. I love the people there, Randy, Ryan, Steven, Nigel everybody behind the scenes …everybody. It was a nice little family.”

Speaking of family, Jennifer also expressed that she’d indeed like to have more kids one day soon. "I would love to have more," J.Lo exclusively told E!’s Marc Malkin. "I don't know if it's in the cards for me, but I would love it."

A 23-year-old contestant from Brooklyn, N.Y., has won the title of Miss America.

Mallory Hagan won the Las Vegas beauty pageant Saturday night after tap dancing to James Brown's "Get Up Off of That Thing" and answering a question about whether armed guards belong in grade schools by saying we should not fight violence with violence.

Hagan defeated Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers, who took second, and Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, who finished third.

Hagan wins a $50,000 college scholarship and gets the crown for one year. Her platform was stopping child sexual abuse.

She is expected to spend her title reign on a nationwide speaking tour and raising money for the Children's Miracle Network, the organization's official charity.

And baby makes seven!

Rosie O’Donnell surprised fans on Tuesday when she tweeted a photo of herself and wife Michelle Rounds holding their brand new bundle of joy. “we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota - #withloveandthanks – AMEN,” O’Donnell wrote beneath the pic, which features the two women cradling the tiny infant.

The couple adopted the baby this week. Back in January, O’Donnell told Dr. Oz on his daytime talk show that Rounds, now 41, was “trying to get pregnant.” After that interview, however, Rounds was diagnosed with desmoids tumors, a rare condition that requires multiple surgeries.

Though the women, who got engaged in December 2011, had planned on marrying last August, they bumped the wedding up to June 2012 in order to tie the knot prior to Rounds’ first surgery.

In August, O’Donnell made a few big announcements. The good news was she and Rounds had secretly married in June. The bad news? She had suffered a heart attack earlier in the month. "I am lucky to be here. Know the symptoms ladies, listen to the voice inside,” she wrote on her blog at the time.

O’Donnell is already mom to four older kids: Parker, 17, Chelsea, 15, Blake, 13, and 10-year-old Vivienne. She split from wife Kelli Carpenter in 2007 after nearly a decade together. Dakota is the first child for Rounds.

Michael Phelps may be nursing a broken heart.

The Olympian has reportedly split from his model girlfriend, Megan Rossee. The beautiful blond was first spotted on the arm of her favorite swimmer during the Summer Olympics in London in August 2012.

The couple were last spotted together at an event for the National Aquarium on December 27. The organization posted a photo that evening on Twitter with the caption , "Thanks again to @MichaelPhelps and @meganrossee for visiting us tonight! Our boys loved the extra play time.

A few days later the swimming star tweeted the cryptic message, "Things happen for a reason. #notme."

Rossee responded with an odd photo stating, "A woman's loyalty is tested when her man has nothing. A man's loyalty is tested when he has everything."

With the news that their relationship is sunk, the superstar swimmer joins a growing group of sports stars who have called game over on their relationships in recent months.
