TOO BIG FOR HER BRITCHES?....The Bolshoi has fired Anastasia Volochkova, its star ballerina:

Officially, it was because the 5-foot-6, 110-pound dancer was too heavy for her male partners one had to be hospitalized recently with an injury after lifting her, company officials told her, and one by one, the company's men refused to dance with her.

Needless to say, not everyone is buying this excuse....
