The mayor of Antwerp, Belgium lived out all of our nightmares this weekend . . . when he was doing a video interview and didn’t realize the hosts could see that he wasn’t wearing pants in his reflection in the mirror.  At least he was wearing underwear.

55 year old DR. DRE was rushed to the hospital in LA Monday night after suffering a brain aneurysm. He remains in the ICU, but he’s stable and lucid.  Last night LL COOL J Tweeted that he’s, quote, “recovering nicely.” Dre himself issued a statement saying, quote, “I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team.  I will be out of the hospital and back home soon.” Dre is in the middle of a nasty divorce battle with his wife Nicole.  She’s trying to get their prenup thrown out, and she wants $2 million A MONTH in temporary spousal support, plus $5 million for legal fees.

After a premature death announcement from her publicist and a bunch of dummies in the media…Actress Tanya Roberts died Monday night at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital following a bizarre turn of events. Her partner, Lance O’Brien, received a call from one of Tanya’s doctor’s Monday night, just after 9 PM, telling him Tanya had passed. We have heard the bizarre story of her reaching out to grab him with her eyes open before falling back unconscious. It just seems so odd he would just walk out of the hospital. I hope he isn’t just trying to cash in. But here he is explaining it to TMZ. Her cause of death is still unknown but doctors believe it might be related to a UTI that spread to her kidneys and liver. She also had Hepatitis C, and doctors told Lance that was causing complications as well.An autopsy has yet to be performed. Tanya was 65 

Three questions…Which famous Chris is married to Katherine Schwarzenegger? Pratt.  ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER…Good actor or just actor? Was this acting or not?  He joined an online charity event hosted by his son-in-law CHRIS PRATT. After Pratt introduced him, Arnold said, quote, “Hello, Chris EVANS.”  Then he quickly corrected himself and said, quote, “I should know your name, that’s for sure.  You’re my favorite son-in-law.” To which Chris replied, “I’m your only son-in-law!  I better be your favorite.” Arnold was just joking, by the way 

KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST…EVERYBODY’s reporting that their marriage is over . . . like E!, “People” magazine, and TMZ. “Page Six” even says that Kim has hired celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to represent her, and settlement talks are already underway.

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda says he wants to do “something different”  and give back to to his “amazing community” through his social media channels for 2021. Shinoda wants to help vocalists, rappers, and songwriters. He’s got a few rules: he’s not recording his vocals, submitting artists should only contribute vocals and one instrument tops and, as he said, “No back-seat producing. The track has to be in my hands until I feel like I’m done.” If you’re looking for a break, learn more at twitch.tv/OfficialMikeShinoda 

DAVID HASSELHOFF is auctioning off the giant replica of himself from the “SpongeBob SquarePants” movie from 04. It’s expected to go for somewhere between $750,000 and $1.5 million.

Remember the 1985 movie “Cocoon”, the one where the senior citizens are rejuvenated after swimming in a pool that contains some kind of alien life force?  WILFORD BRIMLEY played one of those seniors. He was almost 51 years old at the time.  To be exact, he was 18,530 days old. Well, someone with way too much time on their hands started a Twitter called the Brimley / Cocoon Line, which tracks when celebrities turn 18,530 days old . . . or, when they cross the Brimley / Cocoon Line. I hate to make you feel old, but yesterday, RICKY SCHRODER crossed it.  Other people who’ve crossed over recently include Vince Vaughn, Mariah Carey, Queen Latifah, and John Frusciante from the Chili Peppers

It was and IS going to be virtual with artists accepting remotely. 

Morgan Wallen is the country artist we talked about getting uninvited then reinvited to SNL after majorly breaking covid protocols. Walmart mistakenly put out on shelves for sale his new record Dangerous too soon. It’s out this Friday. He hit back by leaking some song samples on socials. Walmart owned-up to their mistake and apologized. A handful of their stores started selling them about a week ago. A spokesperson gave this statement that read in part…”We are deeply apologetic to Morgan for this unfortunate situation. “We have protocols in place to help ensure new albums are not sold before the release date, yet in this instance his album made its way to the shelf in a handful of stores early.  We’re removing any albums on the shelves until the official release date.” He posted at least four clips on his TikTok page.

Since 1991, the band’s catalog has moved nearly 26 million album consumption units in the U.S., with the vast majority of that number from Buckingham’s time in the band;

  • First-year Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski won’t be at his team’s game against Pittsburgh.  There’s been a COVID-19 outbreak within the organization and he’s one of the members infected.
  • Two players, Pro Bowl left guard Joel Bitonio and wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge, have also tested positive.
  • …as well as tight ends coach Drew Petzing and defensive backs coach Jeff Howard.
  • The Browns were already out six players and three members of the coaching staff last weekend when they defeated Pittsburgh.
  • Stefanski will coach virtually this week until game day, when special teams coordinator Mike Priefer coaches from the sidelines.
  • This is a major blow to the Browns. Worst case scanerio stuff. The team’s in the playoffs for the first time in 17 years and the Steelers again Sunday at 8:15pm for the first round of the AFC Playoffs.

Speaking of the Cleveland Browns, Browns players Jedrick Wills and Rashard Higgins were cited for drag racing Tuesday morning, according to police and court records. A suspected marijuana joint was found in one of the vehicles and destroyed by an officer on camera. The same report listed 9:28 a.m. as the time police arrived on the scene at Crocker Road and Coventry Drive. Neither Wills nor Higgins was charged with possession of marijuana. They were cited for first-degree misdemeanor drag racing.

For nearly three decades, wide receivers failed to win the Heisman Trophy. That ended on Tuesday night when Alabama senior DeVonta Smith was presented the award during a virtual ceremony.

Smith became the third Alabama player to claim college football’s most prestigious award, and the first receiver to win it since Michigan‘s Desmond Howard in 1991. Smith beat out three other finalists, all of whom were quarterbacks: Alabama’s Mac JonesClemson‘s Trevor Lawrence and Florida‘s Kyle Trask. Despite standing a slight 6-foot-1 and weighing 175 pounds, Smith became the best wide receiver and the most accomplished player in college football. He leads the FBS in receptions (105), receiving yards (1,641) and receiving touchdowns (20). He has dropped only two passes all season.

The United States upset heavily favored and undefeated Canada 2-0 in Edmonton, Alberta, on Tuesday to win the gold medal in the first world junior ice hockey championship played in a bubble.In a defensive special, Boston College goaltender and Florida Panthers prospect Spencer Knight stopped all 34 shots he faced to secure Team USA’s first gold since 2017. Knight recorded his third shutout of the event, the most for an American goaltender in the tournament. Forward and Anaheim Ducks draft pick Trevor Zegras led the tournament in scoring with 18 points and was named most valuable player of the tournament. The 18 points were the second most by an American player in tournament history.  Zegras also picked up second place on the Americans’ single-tournament scoring list, compiling 18 points to lead all players in the 2021 tournament. He moved past Jeremy Roenick and fell one shy of Doug Weight‘s record of 19, set in 1991. He was the only U.S. player to be named to the tournament all-star team. And get this; Canada had outscored opponents 41-4 before Tuesday night’s final in its bid to repeat as world junior champion.

In addition to records set by U.S. players, Team USA video coach Theresa Feaster became the first woman to serve as an assistant coach for a gold medal-winning team at the tournament. The win gave USA Hockey its fourth consecutive victory over Canada in a World Junior Championship final, having earned wins in 2004, 2010, 2017 and 2021. USA is 4-1 in gold-medal games against Canada, which owns 18 golds in the tournament’s history.
