A pair of California doctors say replicating U.S. actress Jessica Biel's curves are among the top plastic surgery requests they receive.Surgeons Richard Fleming and Toby Mayer of The Beverly Hills Institute of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery say Biel's body, along with actress Angelina Jolie's lips and film star Katie Holmes' eyes, were cosmetic surgery patients' top requests, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.
The fine is for a scene where a boy surprises a woman as she prepares to take a shower. The scene depicted "multiple, close-up views" of the woman's "nude buttocks" according to an agency order issued late Friday.
ABC is owned by the Walt Disney Co. The fines were issued against 52 stations either owned by or affiliated with the network.
FCC's definition of indecent content requires that the broadcast "depicts or describes sexual or excretory activities" in a "patently offensive way" and is aired between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
The agency said the show was indecent because "it depicts sexual organs and excretory organs — specifically an adult woman's buttocks."
The agency rejected the network's argument that "the buttocks are not a sexual organ."
Will this actually work? Will people care? I'm rooting for them.
After months of speculation and rumor, the Kids are coming back. A well-placed source tells PEOPLE exclusively that New Kids On The Block are indeed getting back together. The band's Web site, www.nkotb.com, which had been dormant, is now back up and running in anticipation of the official announcement, which the source says will be made in the next few weeks. The site currently features a television graphic with a fuzzy, flickering photos of NKOTB in their heyday, and a link inviting fans to sign up for info.The boy band, which made legions of tweens swoon in the early '90s, selling more than 50 million albums, became a worldwide phenomenon before calling it quits in 1994. Eighteen years later, they're still "Hangin' Tough." The oldest "Kid," Jonathan Knight, now a real estate developer, will turn 40 later this year. Since the band's demise, former members Donnie Wahlberg, 38, and Joey McIntyre, 35, have seen acting success, while Danny Wood, 38, has worked as a music producer and Knight's brother, Jordan, 37, has continued to record.
Hot, talented & a great sense of humor? Sigh...........
Scarlett Johansson returned from the Persian Gulf with a whole lot of soldiers' trinkets and a delusion of her own engagement - to Barack Obama.
''I am engaged ... to Barack Obama,'' Johansson joked in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday. ''My heart belongs to Barack, and that is who I am currently, finally, engaged to. Yes.''
Johansson, who showed her support for the Democratic presidential candidate at the Iowa caucus earlier this month, was really just deflecting a question about rumors she might be engaged (to actor-beau Ryan Reynolds).
The 23-year-old actress talked about the warm welcome she received while visiting troops stationed in the Persian Gulf last week. Johansson dropped by U.S. bases in Kuwait on Jan. 17 and Jan. 18 as part of a USO tour in which she met about 3,500 men and women in uniform.
''Everybody that I met there was so incredibly friendly and polite and genuine and generous,'' she said. ''They were so, so sweet. I mean, I was just amazed.''
Johansson said some people ripped patches off their jackets as gifts and handed her challenge coins from their military units. One Marine offered up his St. Christopher medal. Another starstruck guy gushed: ''You made my whole deployment!''
Johansson has a full plate for 2008, with the release of films including ''The Other Boleyn Girl'' and ''He's Just Not That Into You,'' as well as the arrival of her debut album on May 20.
The disc, called ''Anywhere I Lay My Head,'' features Tom Waits cover songs and one original track. ''It was a really, really sort of inspired process to make this CD, and it was something I'd never done before,'' said Johansson, who said the album has a dreamy, ethereal quality.
On a far more serious note: Johansson was still speechless Thursday over the death of fellow actor Heath Ledger, who was found dead Tuesday in his Manhattan apartment.
''I'm really just so very shocked,'' she said. ''He was an incredibly sweet, kindhearted and enthusiastic person. And, you know, he loved his daughter - I mean, that was like the light of his life. It's just a terrible loss.''
The last Bond movie will be hard to top..........
"I'm very happy with it," Daniel told "Extra" of the title. "It came from an Ian Fleming short story. It encapsulates what the movie is at heart, and a lot more which I can't give any away."
Daniel renews his license to kill in Bond's 22nd adventure. The movie picks up where "Casino Royale" left off, and this time, Daniel says the stunts promise to bring more pain!
"They've started to hurt, so I can only gauge it by how much pain I'm in and I think we're doing pretty good," he joked.
Newcomber Olga Kurylenko plays Bond's "Girl Friday," and she revealed some secrets about her character.
"She is very driven by revenge," Olga said. "She has her own mission in the movie, and of course she comes across Bond. They are opponents and then they have to work together. She's very feisty!"
Gemma Arterton plays a fellow agent who keeps Bond on his toes - and his back.
"We are at Pinewood Studios on the set, which is South America, and it's the honeymoon suite and it's incredible!" she said.
So there's a honeymoon suite?
"I think I've said too much!" she confessed.
The actress is angry she has been lumped in with the pair - despite her similarly notorious love of ‘partying’ never attracting the attention of the police.
She says, “What have I ever really done? Dance on a table? When Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton got their DUIs, they got punished, they deserved it.
"But my punishment, I don't feel like it fits the crime. I don't understand why people punish others for being happy."

$85,000? Good for them. Henry is a good dude.........
Aaaaaaay! The Fonz will be returning to Milwaukee later this year - permanently, and in bronze. A statue of Arthur ''Fonzie'' Fonzarelli, the leather-jacketed biker from ''Happy Days,'' will be erected in the city where the TV sitcom was set, now that local groups have raised the $85,000 needed to do it, civic leaders said Friday.
Henry Winkler, who played Fonzie during the show's run from 1974 to 1984, called the ''Bronze the Fonz'' project ''a phenomenal compliment. It's not often you have a dream when you're 7 lying in your bed, you get to live your dream out and then someone is going to erect a life-size statue of your creation,'' he told The Associated Press earlier this week.
MARY-KATE OLSEN is speaking out exclusively to ET on the death of HEATH LEDGER.
"Heath was a friend," she says. "His death is a tragic loss. My thoughts are with his family during this very difficult time."
Despite several reports that the New York Police Department is interested in questioning Mary-Kate regarding the phone calls made by the masseuse who discovered Heath's body Tuesday, the NYPD tells ET that the stories are simply untrue and they have no interest in talking with Olsen.
The police, however, have released new timeline details about the calls placed to Olsen.

Scarlett Johansson has already conquered the big screen, now she’s taking on the music charts.
The blonde bombshell will release her debut album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head,” on May 20, it was announced on Thursday.
The album will contain 10 Tom Waits songs and one original track by Scarlett.

Scarlett spent five weeks in Spring 2007 recording the album in a Louisiana studio.
Does McCain want Sly as a supporter?.....
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has received the endorsement of action star Sylvester Stallone.
"I like McCain a lot," Stallone said on Fox News on Thursday. "You know, things may change along the way, but there's something about matching the character with the script. And right now, the script that's being written and reality is pretty brutal and pretty hard-edged like a rough action film, and you need somebody who's been in that to deal with it."
McCain, who is campaigning in Florida ahead of the state's January 29 primaries, responded to the endorsement by saying: "Look out Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone's coming after you, and he's gonna get ya! Chuck, you can run, but you can't hide."
The Republican hopeful was criticized earlier by action star Chuck Norris, who endorsed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, for being too old for the presidency. The four-term senator had jokingly replied that he may have to send his 95-year-old mother to "wash Chuck's mouth out with soap."

But the news didn’t stop there — X17Online.com took the story a step further, claiming the actress is carrying twins.

As for Abigail, he joked, "She’s incredible. I’m convinced she’s just Judi Dench in good makeup."

In a new interview with The Los Angeles Times, JOHN RITTER's widow AMY YASBECK is speaking out for the first time about her husband's death, saying she believes it could have been avoided.
The beloved actor died on his daughter's 5th birthday, September 11, 2003. At the time, Amy believed it was not preventable. "The doctors told it to me like I was 5 and I told it to [our daughter] like she was 5," she said in an interview with The Times. "The truth is, it's a lot more complicated and it's a lot more sad."
She and Ritter's four children filed a wrongful-death lawsuit and are asking for $67 million in damages. The family has already received over $14 million in settlements, according to the report, including $9.4 million from Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank where he died.
His final diagnosis was an aortic dissection -- a tear in the largest blood vessel in the body -- which was not discovered until right before his death.
Amy's lawyers fault two doctors that treated her late husband while he was in their care.
"You can't treat my kid's dad for something and kill him in the process," she said. "I think the money will show how angry the jury will be about what happened to John and what could happen to them."
Defense attorneys argue the two doctors did nothing wrong. They claim Ritter would have died regardless of any treatment he may have received.
Next month, a Los Angeles County jury will be left to decide the case.
Don't we all have a "Mr. Hyde" side one time or another?.........
Despite reports the couple's relationship broke down because Edmonds refused to sign a prenuptial agreement, an insider claims the film producer called things off after Murphy became physically intimidating towards her.
The source told the New York Post newspaper: "That was kind of the last straw. She was happy to sign a prenup - she has her own money. She was very accommodating. But then it was like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."
"Eddie became very controlling and insisted on bringing his mother on their honeymoon."
"They got into a huge fight. He started screaming at her and grabbed her. She was scared."
'Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' is a book written by Robert Louis Stevenson, telling the story of a London lawyer with a split personality.
"Playing the Beast" sounds like a great rock tune..........

Jessica Alba is opening up about her pregnancy, talking for the first time since she announced she was engaged and expecting her first child with boyfriend Cash Warren.
"It's quite a blessing and perfect timing," the glowing star told "Extra" at a junket for her new thriller, "The Eye."
The only thing that takes some getting used to?
"Definitely a lot more emotions!" she confessed. "Anything could make me incredibly angry or break down crying, and that's not something I'm used to."
She also admitted that she's already dreaming about baby.
"It had to do with breastfeeding, which is the only thing I'm paranoid about, more than giving birth," she revealed, adding that she's trying not to gain too much weight during the pregnancy.
"I try and eat healthy as possible, good for baby, exercise, as long as i don't' gain too much to fast, that's the key," she said.

Female fans are loyal, passionate, stylish and feminine. It's these core principles that are behind my design philosophy. I am very excited to bring TOUCH apparel to female sports fans everywhere."

I've seen Pepa's reality show. I believe her. She seems to be level headed and choosy.......
New York Post:
WE'RE not sure we believe him for a second, but Lenny Kravitz insists he's been celibate for three years. "[It's] just a promise I made until I get married," the rocker, who's been married to Lisa Bonet - and linked to Adriana Lima, Devon Aoki, Natalie Imbruglia, Vanessa Paradis, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Penelope Cruz and Nicole Kidman - tells next month's Spin magazine. "Where I'm at in life, the women have got to come with something else, not just the body, but the mind and spirit. It usually trips them out, but that's the way it's going to be. I'm looking at the big picture." Also steering clear of sex is Sandy "Pepa" Denton of Salt-n-Pepa. "Just because I'm flirtatious people think I'm loose. But it's not true," the hip-hop honey tells Steppin' Out's Chaunce Hayden. "Truth be told, I haven't had any sex in two years . . . I need a guy to make me go 'Wow!' and I just haven't found that guy. My standards have gone way up . . . I'm not just jumping right in anymore." How times have changed.
Amen to that.........
Juno star Ellen Page has revealed she’s glad her parents refused to let her become a child star.
The now 20 year old actress was offered a role in a high profile sitcom when she was 13 but her parents made her turn it down, telling her she was too young to handle the pressures of fame.
While she admits to being angry at the time, she now sees their decision was “a good thing”: “I would have had to move to LA and I can’t even imagine what I would be like now. [My parents] said keep up your grades and then you can act.”
Ellen is in the running to the Best Actress Oscar for her role in the critically acclaimed teen pregnancy film.

JOHN TRAVOLTA told ET: "I am devastated. I loved Heath. He is probably my favorite actor. I don't like what has happened at all, so I am very sad about it."
When asked for her reaction, fellow Aussie NICOLE KIDMAN said, "What a tragedy. My heart goes out to his family."
Adding her sympathy for his family was CHARLIZE THERON, who told ET: "It's really, really sad. I hope his family is okay. I wish them the best."
In speculating on the cause of Ledger's death, DENNIS HOPPER told ET: "That's terrible. Drugs today ... when we stopped taking drugs, they started. It is just an epidemic. I am sorry to hear that. He was a great talent."
MEL GIBSON commented: "I had such great hope for him. He was just taking off and to lose his life at such a young age is a tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family."
