Funny-tasting waterTourists at a Los Angeles hotel were distressed to learn they’d been drinking, bathing, and brushing their teeth with water from a rooftop tank in which a dead body had been decomposing. The body was discovered by a maintenance worker who was trying to figure out why the water pressure was so low. “The water did have a funny taste,” said British tourist Sabrina Baugh, who drank it for eight days. “We never thought anything of it. We thought it was just the way it was here.”

Ellen DeGeneres eyes Katy PerryEllen DeGeneres has a crush on singer Katy Perry, says the National Enquirer, and it’s putting a strain on her marriage to Portia de Rossi. Chat-show queen DeGeneres, 55, was photographed pretending to ogle Perry’s ample cleavage at the recent Grammy Awards, but sources say de Rossi didn’t think it was funny, and believes DeGeneres’s interest in the 28-year-old Perry is all too real. De Rossi, 40, “feels threatened,” said the source, because Perry is “hotter, younger, and has huge boobs.”

"Tanorexic" New Jerseyan to move to BritainHaving been banned from every tanning salon in New Jersey, Patricia Krentcil—dubbed “a tanorexic” by the tabloids—plans to move to Britain to continue tanning. Krentcil, 44, says that since salons started turning her away she is having “to spend hours covering myself in tanning lotion to get the color I want.” She says that even though she’s roasted herself to the color of a coffee bean, “not once did I ever look in the mirror and think I was too dark.” Only by moving her family to Britain, she says, can she “live my life the way I want to.”
