And all we have to say is, "How you doin'?"
Never one to have a boring show, Wendy Williams had a professional eater come down to her studio in an effort to break a Guinness World Record. His objective: to eat as many sponging, squishy, frosting-filled Twinkies as he could in one minute!
Check out the video (above) to see this kid thrown 14 of those bad boys down the hatch without even breaking a sweat!
Do you see how wide his mouth opened? Mmm!

Good news for Thirty Seconds to Mars, the group has just set a Guinness World Record!
The band has set the record for “Longest Concert Tour by a Rock Band”. The group played 309 shows in just over two years!
They finished up their latest tour with a string of 4 shows in NYC after playing over 300 shows in almost 60 countries in 6 continents.
All of the shows were in support of their third studio album This Is War which was released in 2009 and has sold over 1.5 million albums and 1 million singles worldwide.
Pretty amazing news. Congrats!

Michelle Obama has reached hero status in our book!
As the First Lady continues to set a good health and wellness example for all Americans to follow, she made good on a promise to break the Guinness World record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.
In a partnership with National Geographic Kids, Michelle's Let's Move! initiative inspired 300,265 people to join together to break the old record on October 11th.
Barack Obama's wife led 400 elementary and middle-school students from Washington in jumping jacks on the South Lawn of the White House, while others joined the cause from around the world.
Congrats on the achievement! Keep doing what you're doing because folks like us definitely appreciate it!
