Will Beyonce Catch the Hep?

posted by on February 28 at 9:21 AM

Horror struck Hollywood today — and in particular, the bikini model community — when it was learned that everyone who attended the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue party held on Valentine’s day may have been exposed to HEPATITUS A. According to, the L.A. County Board of Health announced that an employee of WOLFGANG PUCK (who was catering the event) has the disease and has potentially exposed and endangered much of the world’s hottest bikini models… including BEYONCE who was featured on this year’s cover! In order to avoid serious illness, everyone in attendance has been instructed to get an immune globulin shot by TOMORROW.
Sure, you may laugh now… but if those girls die, next year’s Sports Illustrated covergirl may be TYRA BANKS by default. You’re in our prayers, bikini models.

Uh, hepatitis A isn't that serious, at least compared to B or C.

I hate it when celeberities get diseases that only us normal people are supposed to have.

There is a safe and effective vaccine for Hep A. Hell, it is safe enough to be used as the control vaccine in the Herpes and HPV vaccine studies....

I [heart] Beyonce! I hope she gets her shots fast.

Wait, Beyonce's on the cover?? What the hell? Sure she's fit, but she's no athlete! This bothers me in two ways: 1) Sports Illustrated seems to be forgetting the sports part 2) Athletes are unarguably the hottest people ever. What the hell?!?

Noink, they generally don't have athletes on the covers of the swimsuit issue - they have ladies who look real good in bathing suits.

Wait, are you saying you've just now heard about the Swimsuit Issue for the first time?

It looks like SI has a music issue now too.
