By Sam Brand Posted Oct 7th 2009 02:08PM
teacup pigs' and Bai Ling, Wanda Sykes Wife and Filippa Hamilton are surging in Google Trends? We can shed some light on the mystery. Google Trends provides the 40 hottest keywords of the hour, and though the results change frequently, at any given time the list offers a snapshot of what's on people's minds. Here are the hottest pop culture trending topics today...
Teacup Pigs - Googlers really love the 'Today' show. Or maybe 'Today' show fans really love Google. Either way, if something curious pops up on the popular morning show, you can bet your Venti Latte money that it'll become a minor Internet sensation. That's what's happened with 'teacup pigs.' The pint-size porkers are blowing up across the pond, British breeder Jane Croft told Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry today. Rupert Grint (AKA Ron Weasley) owns two of them, and Croft said she was selling five to ten of the critters a week. After her appearance on 'Today,' you're gonna have to wait a bit if you want to bring home this bacon.
Wanda Sykes Wife - The comedian is already married to Alex. They tied the knot in October of 2008. They already welcomed twins in April. So why is this term surfacing now? Wanda Sykes apparently gives more details on her white wife in a new HBO special, joking "I like to say [my wife] is French, because it's better than 'white.'" She also appeared on Jay Leno's show as a lead-up to the special.
Filippa Hamilton - The 23-year-old French-Swedish model is at the center of a Photoshop controversy. The thin model was analyzed on Boing Boing after some thought her head appeared bigger than her pelvis. Looking at the pic close up, BB's got a point. They found it originally on Photoshop Disasters. The pic would certainly appear to qualify as one.
Gretchen Rossi - The 'Real Housewives of Orange County' blondie isn't going to boost her bust any time soon, Pop Tarts said today. Unlike her fellow housewives, Rossi vows to stay natural. "It is hard to stay strong and not go under the knife because I am surrounded by it, but ultimately I feel I have made the right choice for me and I can only hope it sets an example to young girls that you don't have to have plastic surgery to feel beautiful and confident." The former real estate agent has taken her passion for natural beauty to the next level, founding The Gretchen Project, where she explores what really works, what's outdated, what's new with "the ultimate goal to pass along the pearls of wisdom to the modern day woman."
Bai Ling Photos - Bai Ling, or Ling Bai as she's known in China, jumps to the top of the Google meter every few months for one reason or another. She claims she's from the moon, you see. And she's very beautiful. And she was arrested for shoplifting two magazines and a pack of batteries. Now she's playing a stripper in 'A Beautiful Life' with Jesse Garcia and Angela Sarafyan, and you all want to see what kind of frisky pics you can get your mice on. We don't blame you.
Sara Jean Underwood - Playboy's 2007 Playmate of the year made her film debut as a pirate wench in 2007's 'Epic Movie.' She went on to appear in mindless non-speaking roles in 'The House Bunny,' 'Two Million Stupid Women,' and 'Miss March.' But Underwood is about to go from video vixen to full-blown actress. She's starring in the indie camping-in-the-woods-goes-wrong horror flick 'Zellwood,' and many predict she's about to become a household name.
E. Pierce Marshall - Been a little while since Anna Nicole Smith hit the headlines, but here she is again. Turns out she was investigated by the FBI in 2000 and 2001 relating to allegations that she had plotted to have the son of her multimillionaire husband murdered. The FBI confiscated a .357 Smith and Wesson revolver and a stainless-steel knife and grilled the then 33-year-old beauty but ultimately decided there wasn't enough evidence to press on with the investigation. The older and richer Marshall died in 1995, a year after marrying Anna Nicole, E. Pierce died in 2006 of an infection, and Anna died a year after that. The oil tycoon's estimated $500 million estate is still in limbo.
Google Barcode Logo - Google is the Internet's biggest celebrity, so why not. This news fits here, no? You're all Googling like mad to figure out why the regular Google logo has been replaced by a barcode. It appears to make no sense, but you know deep down that this all-powerful Internet A-lister has a method to its madness. It does. The barcode spells out "Google" in "Code 128" in commemoration of the 57th birthday of the invention of that ubiquitous black and white digi-stamp. Can you imagine grocery shopping before the bar code? Can you imagine life before Google???
