Zach, of Duluth, Minn., saw this story that claims soccer WAG Abbey Clancy was going to be on the cover of the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. He asks, "Jimmy, is she really gonna be the cover model?" First things first. The 2010 Swimsuit section launches right here on SI.com on Tuesday, Feb. 9, so be sure to check it out. Second, I have no idea if Clancy is on the cover. The magazine keeps that information a secret and I'm the last person they'd tell because they know I'd share the scoop with Hot Clicks Nation. In fact, I'm not even allowed to confirm or deny that Clancy will even be in the issue, so you just have to check the Swimsuit section on Feb. 9. However, I can tell you this. I did get a very quick sneak peek at a few of the pictures that will be on the site -- let me plug this again, Feb. 9 -- and you will NOT be disappointed. Speaking of not being disappointed, since Zach asked about Clancy, I guess I should provide this link and this link.

Kiefer Sutherland showed up on the Late Show with David Letterman last night wearing a dress. Why? As he told Dave, "I lost a bet over the weekend. I was so sure New England was gonna win that I told a guy who used to be my friend that if New England lost, I would wear a dress on Letterman." Since I'm sure Sutherland reads Hot Clicks twice a day, let me remind him things aren't all bad in Patriots land.

During the two-week span that covered Christmas and New Years, I watched Home Alone about 25 times. So I have to shake my head in amazement when I think about the fact that Kevin McAllister, aka Macaulay Culkin, is dating Mila Kunis, who is featured in the latest issue ofEsquire.
