  • Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight Tickets May Never Go on Sale to Public

    Those who want to buy tickets for next month’s fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao may soon need to confront the possibility that there will be no public sale. With about two weeks remaining until the May 2 bout, and a secondary market that has been quiet in anticipation of the public sale, it’s possible that resale will be the only option, according to Chris Matcovich, a spokesman for aggregator TiqIQ. “It was supposed to be three weeks ago, then two weeks, then this week, and my gut feeling is that they won’t have that public sale,” Matcovich said in a telephone interview. If there’s no public sale, that means all of the tickets were purchased and divided between the MGM Grand and promoters.

    The dark chocolate and ganache cupcakes sold by a bakery along the French Riviera may taste sweet, but an ongoing controversy over the treats is exposing the sour history of race relations in the Gallic nation. Late last month a judge ruled that the “God and Goddess” desserts, which have been sold for the past 15 years by La Belle Epoque, a boulangerie in the town of Grasse, were so racially offensive that the business would have to stop displaying them. As you can see in the photo above, the cupcakes are made to resemble a rotund man and woman, complete with protuding pink lips and genitalia.

  • Source: ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Provoked by Towing Company Employee

    There's two sides to every story... and while ESPN's Britt McHenry might not be able to talk about her now viral Easter Sunday towing experience thanks to a week-long suspension, another source is speaking up. McHenry was suspended for a week after surveillance video of her berating a towing company employee went public, but a source tells ET that the women in the video also provoked the Washington D.C.-based sports reporter during the April 5 incident. In the video, McHenry is seen making comments about the woman's weight and other employees' lack of education. "Do you feel good about your job?" she asks at one point. "So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing? Why, 'cause I have a brain and you don't?" PHOTOS: 8 Celeb Feuds That Just Won't Die However, according to a source, the Advanced Towing employee was "rude, dismissive and taunting," and the tape released is "highly edited" to show only McHenry in an unflattering light. For example, her dig to "lose some weight, baby girl" was allegedly a response to the employee telling her to "fix your roots." McHenry did tweet about the incident on April 6, writing in a now-deleted post, "Just got towed after eating dinner at an establishment in Arlington. How corrupt is Advanced Towing?" Advanced Towing Company, LLC currently has an F rating from the Better Business Bureau and there have been 40 complaints to the BBB about the company in the last three years. The company also made negative headlines earlier this month, when an Arlington father said his car -- with his two children inside -- were nearly towed away during a recent trip to a local CVS when an Advanced Towing driver didn't see the children initially. Still, the source says McHenry suggested that she go back to Arlington and offer an apology directly to the employee, Gina Michelle, on April 7, but was advised not to by ESPN, as it be better to not engage. The source also claims Advance Towing has been "shopping the tape around," and even approached ESPN before the video went viral. The towing company responded to that clam in a statement released to ET: Parking enforcement is contentious by nature. At the same time, neither Gina, our lot clerk, nor our company, have any interest in seeing Britt McHenry suspended or terminated as a result of her comments. Ms. McHenry is our neighbor, and, as she said, to paraphrase, made remarks that were out of line.  She is human and errors in judgement can be made in the heat of the moment. Gina is a single mother of 3 children who works a difficult job to provide her family. Gina holds no ill will toward Ms. McHenry. As a small business, we saw no benefit to releasing the video, except to highlight personal attacks employees in jobs like towing, public parking enforcement and others sometimes encounter. The video was not licensed or sold to anyone. For her part, McHenry apologized for her actions on Thursday on Twitter. "In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things," she tweeted. "As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake."

  • Giants' Lincecum switches it up, goes with rock-star look

The right-hander still gets a rock star reception at AT&T Park, and he said his new look is inspired by Matthew Healy, the lead singer of one of his favorite bands, "The 1975." Lincecum met with the same Sacramento barber (named Anthony) who gave Hunter Pence a new look, but as they went for The Healy, Lincecum realized that his hair didn't quite sit that way.
