Victoria's Secret unveiled the 2013 Fantasy Bra Wednesday, the latest in the company's yearly release of the multi-million dollar undergarment.

Model Candice Swanopoel will be the lucky 'Angel' at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which tapes in late November and will air Dec. 10. Swanopoel joins a long list of famous Angels to wear the Fantasy Bra since Claudia Schiffer started it all in 1996.

Victoria's Secret  said the $10 million bra was made by London Jewelers. Newsday reports the cost is up sharply from last year's $2.5 million version "thanks to a 52-karat ruby centerpiece, an 18-karat gold base and plenty of diamonds and yellow sapphires for good measure."

Tiger Woods spent part of Memorial Day in jail in Jupiter, Florida, after his arrest on drunken driving charges in Palm Beach County early Monday morning.

Woods, who lives on Jupiter Island, is charged with DUI-unlawful blood alcohol.

In an interview with the Palm Beach Post, Jupiter Police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said she did not know which tests were performed on Woods at the scene or in jail, but that more information on the arrest and charges should be available on Tuesday.

Social media erupted over the news, with some questioning why Woods didn’t call a Taxi or Uber.

Woods, 41, has battled medical issues in recent years, including multiple back surgeries. He last hit the links professionally in February, playing the Dubai Desert Classic, but pulled out of that tournament.

Tiger Woods is one of the greatest golfers of all time. He dominated the sport for almost 20 years with 14 major wins and 79 PGA Tour victories, according to the Golf Channel.

He was voted PGA Player of the year 11 times.

In a blog post last week, Woods wrote about the pain of his back injury

“It has been just over a month since I underwent fusion surgery on my back, and it is hard to express how much better I feel. It was instant nerve relief. I haven’t felt this good in years,” Woods wrote.

“I could no longer live with the pain I had. We tried every possible non-surgical route and nothing worked,” he added.

Woods said he’s looking forward to returning to competitive golf as soon as he’s able.

Tiger Woods issues statement on DUI arrest, says no alcohol involved

Woods clarified that “an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications,” not alcohol, was a factor in the arrest.

“I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

“I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too.”

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said Woods, 41, was arrested around 3 a.m. ESPN reported he was booked at 7:18 a.m. People reported that he was released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m.

Woods said in a blog post on his website last week that, following a recent surgery on his back, he is focusing on short-term goals rather than a fast return to golf.

“Presently, I’m not looking ahead,” he wrote. “I can’t twist for another two and a half to three months. Right now, my sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me. I am concentrating on short-term goals.”

“It was instant nerve relief,” Woods said of the surgery. “I haven’t felt this good in years.”

The surgery was the fourth done on his back since spring 2014.

Woods said that “the long-term prognosis is positive” for a return to golf.

I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.

I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office for their professionalism."

The actors are both in the United Kingdom, but they made sure to save some time to commemorate the holiday by completing The Murph Challenge, an exercise routine that was created in honor of the late U.S. Navy SEAL Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who was awarded the Medal of Honor, the U.S. military’s highest decoration, for his actions during the War in Afghanistan.

“So today, whether you do a Murph Challenge or just take some time to say thank you and remember, remember that’s what today is all about,” Krasinski added.

Each Memorial Day, people across the country perform the workout: a 1-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats and another 1-mile run while wearing a 20-lb. body vest. The challenge raises money and awareness for the Lt. Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation.

Vernon has co-directed hits like “Shrek 2” and “Monsters vs. Aliens.” He also voiced the Gingerbread Man in the “Shrek” films.

“The Jetsons” has been on the planning board for years after Warner Bros. hired Matt Liberman to pen the script in 2015, Variety reported.

The original “Jetsons” tv series aired for one season in prime time on ABC in 1962-63, Smithsonian reported.

This isn’t the first feature film for the space-age family. Universal released an animated “Jetsons” film in 1990 which was directed by Joseph Barbera, co-founder of Hanna-Barbera studios and one of the creators of the series.
