I Call Dibs On Stacy Keibler's Brain

I’m in awe of Stacy Keibler. Rather than curl up in the time-honored, traditional post-breakup fetal position, George Clooney's ex-girlfriend has been making the rounds of entertainment news shows, charming reporters with quotes like, "I'm someone that's always lived the present moment. I always look at the positive on everything."...more
