>> In an ongoing attempt to win back the Palin family's favor, Levi Johnston has begun going to the gym six days a week to prepare for his Playgirl debut. Way to make us proud, Levi! (People)

>> Another case in point of setting a good example for the kids: Atlanta's own pride and joy Michael Vick, who was released from prison this May after an 18-month term, will star in an eight-part television docu-series on BET tentatively titled "Michael Vick Project." Wonder if the quarterback, who was arrested for running a dog fighting ring,will team up with Bravo for the "Michael Vick and Rachel Zoe Project?" (MSNBC)

>> No wonder there's no famous Saudi rappers. Abdul-Jawad, a Saudi Arabian divorced father of four, was sentenced to five years in jail and 1,000 lashes for talking about premarital sex, pick-up techniques and sex toys on a Lebanese TV show. (Reuters)

>> Another original plan for those suffering from the recession, this time from an athlete down-under. A 23-three-year-old taekwondo Olympian from New Zealand opened a brothel in Auckland this year to finance his 2012 Olympic Games bid. Now the New Zealand Olympic Committee has threatened to sue the man. (Reuters)

>> Finally, proof that tax payers' money is going to good use in this economic downturn, two NASA spacecrafts are set to purposefully crash on the moon tomorrow. (CNN)
