Chewing On That Nurse’s Butt
Even when Canadians are busted breaking the law, they’re somehow STILL charming.
Cops in Manitoba pulled over a guy for going 90 miles-per-hour, and when they asked for an explanation, he said he couldn’t help it, because “Kickstart My Heart“ by MOTLEY CRUE came on the radio.
And it wasn’t B.S. The cop knew he was telling the truth because he was also listening to that station. But the honesty didn’t get the guy a warning. The cop still wrote him a ticket worth $482 in American dollars. (Facebook)

This past Sunday, PETER FARRELLY was riding high as the director of the Golden Globe-winning movie “Green Book”. But yesterday, his past came back to spoil his happy vibe. An old “Newsweek” article from 1998 resurfaced, in which Peter and his brother BOBBY talked about Peter’s habit of FLASHING people on their movie sets “about 500 times”. This was back when Peter and Bobby were directing classic comedies like “There’s Something About Mary” and “Dumb & Dumber”. They would basically work as a team, with Bobby tricking people into looking at Peter’s exposed genitalia. They even got CAMERON DIAZ, and she told “Newsweek”, quote, “When a director shows you his penis the first time you meet him, you’ve got to recognize the creative genius.” So obviously, it was a long time ago and it was just a joke. Heck, they even ADMITTED to it in a major publication. But it’s not a good look in the #MeToo era . . . especially for a guy who’s hoping to win some Oscars. So Peter issued a statement saying, quote, “I was an idiot. I did this decades ago and I thought I was being funny and the truth is I’m embarrassed and it makes me cringe now. I’m deeply sorry.” And that wasn’t even the only bad news for “Green Book” yesterday . . . The writer, a guy named Nick Vallelonga, deleted his Twitter feed after an old Tweet resurfaced. Remember back in 2015 when DONALD TRUMP claimed that he saw “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating the September 11th terrorist attack? Well, Vallelonga AGREED with him. He Tweeted, quote, “100% correct. Muslims in Jersey City cheering when towers went down. I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news.”
After fans and critics alike urged Lady Gaga to speak out against R. Kelly, the singer has apologized for recording the 2013 song “Do What U Want” (AUDIO)with him and revealed remove it from all streaming services. Gaga also vowed not to work with Kelly again. “As a victim of sexual assault myself, I made both the song and video at a dark time in my life,” she said in a statement on Wednesday night. “My intention was to create something extremely defiant and provocative, because I was angry and still hadn’t processed the trauma that had occurred in my own life.” Gaga continued, “I can’t go back, but I can go forward, and continue to support women, men, and people of all sexual identities, and of all races, who are victims of sexual assault… I’m sorry, both for my poor judgement when I was young, and for not speaking out sooner.”
Michael Strahan spent a full segment trying to talk to Kevin Hart about his past homophobic comments but Kevin wasn’t having it. Kevin just kept saying he was ‘over’ talking about it. (AUDIO)
Rose McGowan is expected to plead no contest to drug charges after she was indicted in Virginia last on a felony charge of cocaine possession. “The Commonwealth and Ms. McGowan have reached a plea agreement in her case. The Commonwealth has agreed to reduce the current felony charge to a misdemeanor of possession of a controlled substance,” attorney Jim Hundley said Tuesday in a statement. “Ms. McGowan will enter a plea of no contest to the reduced charge when she appears in court on January 15, and the Commonwealth will recommend a sentence that requires Ms. McGowan to pay a fine.” The investigation into McGowan began in January 2017 after a wallet she left behind on her flight to Washington Dulles International Airport tested positive for cocaine. The actress was arrested in November 2017 and released on $5,000 bond.
On last night’s episode of The Masked Singer, judge Jenny McCarthy correctly guessed (kind of) the identity of the celebrity disguised as The Pineapple. Clues about The Pineapple included the fact they had been through some dark times, beat a life-threatening disease and had a bumper sticker that says “pipe dream.” After the celebrity gave a less than stellar performance of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” McCarthy guessed it was either Cheech Marin or Tommy Chong. It was soon revealed to be Chong. Other guesses were Sugar Ray Leonard, Jimmy Buffett and Kid Rock. Chong/The Pineapple had faced off against The Raven, a former talk show host who recently suffered a personal tragedy. Twitter seemed to believe that it’s Ricki Lake, whose ex-husband died in 2017.

The first person to portray James Bond onscreen was an American. His name was Barry Nelson, and he played Bond in a live TV movie version of “Casino Royale” with Peter Lorre in 1954. And in the movie, Bond WAS an American, working for “Combined Intelligence.” Obviously in the books and movies he was always a British spy. (AUDIO)
JERRY SEINFELD has arguably been THE most famous comedian over the past 25 years . . . but he’s reportedly SO JEALOUS of a late-night talk show host that he HATES him. A RadarOnline source says, quote, “Nobody knows where the bad blood comes from, but Jerry just hates JIMMY [KIMMEL] . . . people believe Jerry is envious of Jimmy. “It’s not coming from Kimmel’s side. He’s a huge Seinfeld fan, and he’s always talking about what a great comic Jerry is . . .
you won’t see Jerry on Jimmy’s show again . . . ever.” For what it’s worth, the article claims Jerry has done “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in the past, but that’s not true. He’s never been on. In fact, a few years ago, Kimmel said that Seinfeld was someone who hasn’t done the show that he’d like to have on. Kimmel also hasn’t done Jerry’s show, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”, which is now 10 seasons in. And if you Google them, the only thing that comes up is Jerry taking a shot at Kimmel over his tribute to David Letterman a while back . . . when Kimmel decided to air a re-run on the night of Letterman’s last show. Seinfeld said it didn’t go far enough, and that he should’ve not aired an episode at all.
“The Titan Games” is on NBC tonight at 7 central. Hosted by The Rock where 16 people compete for a grand prize of $100,000. Each week four people compete to be named a Titan.

Evan Lowenstein, who reportedly helped Kevin Spacey produce his notorious “Let Me Frank” Christmas Eve video, was also present during the Oscar-winners run-in with his sexual assault accuser in 2016. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lowenstein may be a key witness in the Nantucket trial. Lowenstein and Spacey have been tight since early 2016, when Spacey replaced his manager of 28 years with Lowenstein.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have dropped $11 million to snap up a full floor of a luxury building in Brooklyn Heights, called The Standish. They bought two units, which they plan to convert into one spacious abode. Their pal Matt Damon recently purchased a condo in the same building for $16 million+.
SAMUEL L. JACKSON is Hollywood’s most bankable star. His 120-plus movies have made $13.3 BILLION around the world, and $5.7 billion in the U.S. That’s better than HARRISON FORD and TOM HANKS, who are the next two guys on the list. But movies aren’t his only source of income. In fact, they might not even be his MAIN source of income. According to a new profile in the “Hollywood Reporter“, Sam makes EIGHT FIGURES A YEAR doing those Capital One commercials. That means at least $10 million. A year. Not bad for a guy who spent 15 years of his life ADDICTED TO CRACK

Woodstock is celebrating its 50th anniversary this summer, and as expected, there WILL be an anniversary ‘Woodstock 50‘ this August. It’s a three-day anniversary festival in Watkins Glen, New York on August 16th, 17th and 18th. The original concert happened on the weekend of August 15th in 1969. Supposedly they have more than 40 acts booked, but no performers will be announced until tickets go on sale next month. It’ll be “hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival.” It’ll be Woodstock back to its roots with the ACTIVISM that was a big part of the original. That didn’t really happen at Woodstock ’99 20 years ago. “We want this to be more than just coming to a concert . . . Woodstock ’99 was more like an MTV event than a Woodstock event” They expect to sell 100,000 three-day passes. Watkins Glen, New York is less than 150 miles from Bethel, where the original festival was held which has been transformed into a concert venue with a capacity of 15,000 seats
THE WHO were one of the highlights of the original Woodstock in 1969 . . . so what would a 50th anniversary celebration be without them? Well, unfortunately, we’re going to find out. There are some things being planned for this August in Upstate New York, but ROGER DALTREY isn’t interested. He says, quote, “August in America is too hot for me to work anymore. “You can’t redo Woodstock because the stars of Woodstock were the audience. You can celebrate the date, but you can’t redo [the festival]. Nobody’s approached us about it, anyway, but I really wouldn’t be interested in something like that.” Daltrey says he and PETE TOWNSHEND are talking about doing some stuff with The Who this year.
Well, it’s official. THOM YORKE says he will not attend RADIOHEAD’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year . . . because he doesn’t “understand” it. He says, quote, “We’ve always been very blasé about that stuff. We just think that we just don’t quite understand it. We’ve had it explained to us, so it’s cool. But we don’t really understand it as English people. “I think our problem is essentially that every awards ceremony in the U.K. stinks. We grew up with the Brits, which is like this sort of drunken car crash that you don’t want to get involved with. So, yeah, we don’t really know what to make of it.” It’s unclear if the rest of the band will attend. By the way, Thom WOULD be interested in another award show. He’d go to the Oscars if his music for the “Suspiria” remake is nominated. He said, quote, “The Oscar thing makes a bit more sense, because I’ve had it explained to me a bit more. I hope it gets nominated. That would be great . . . sometimes it’s nice to be recognized.”

The Blues are back in action tonight to take on the Montreal Canadiens at the Enterprise Center tonight. The team is looking to rebound after a 3-1 loss to the Stars on Tuesday. Some injury notes…Alexander Steen is still out with an injury, and it looks like Tyler Bozak may not dress either. No word on if Vince Dunn will return to the lineup after a lower body injury, looks like he will be a game time decision. Also – as far as who will start tonight…Craig Berube had this to say, “Berube didn’t name his starting goalie Thursday against Montreal. When asked about Binnington getting more playing time, Berube replied: “Binner had a great game the other night. We’ll get him back in there.” For context, Berube was saying at some point, not necessarily tonight.
More news yesterday as far as NFL coaches being hired…Media reports said that the New York Jets will hire Adam Gase, the former coach for the Miami Dolphins. The Denver Broncos reportedly are bringing in Vic Fangio, the Chicago Bears’ defensive coordinator. The Cleveland Browns hired Freddie Kitchens, who was their own offensive coordinator.
The Oakland A’s expect Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray to declare for the 2019 NFL draft before Monday’s deadline. Murray, a two-sport star, was chosen by the A’s with the ninth pick of the MLB draft in 2018 and signed a $4.66 million contract in June that allowed him to play football for the Sooners for one final season before joining the A’s. Murray, 21, complicated things by leading Oklahoma to a 12-2 record and a spot in the College Football Playoff, winning the Heisman Trophy along the way. Most experts say that he could be a 1st round pick. Declaring for the NFL draft would not guarantee that Murray would choose football, and the A’s would retain his professional rights, even if he tried the NFL first.
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton had quite the display waiting for his players this week when they started preparing for Sunday’s NFC divisional playoff opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. Payton brought three armed guards, a stack of more than $200,000 in cash, the Vince Lombardi Trophy and a Super Bowl ring into the team meeting room Monday to give his players added motivation. The cash represents how much money they stand to make in playoff bonuses if they go all the way — a total of $201,000 according to the collective bargaining agreement. Payton walked in, pointed to the items and said, “Y’all want this? Win three f***ing games.”
Colorado State coach Mike Bobo didn’t feel good about his team’s performance — or his own — during a 3-9 finish in 2018. So a couple of days after the Rams closed the regular season with a 27-19 loss at Air Force on Nov. 22, Bobo called CSU athletic director Joe Parker and told him to keep his $100,000 raise for 2019. Bobo, who is 24-27 in four seasons with the Rams, signed an amended contract with the school last week, which leaves his salary at $1.8 million. “This is an administration that stood behind me, and I felt like we didn’t live up to our end of the deal,” Bobo told ESPN. “I wanted to make a statement to our players that we’re in this together and you’ve got be accountable, starting with me.” And finally – the SLU Billikens improved their record to 11-4 last night after they beat UMass at Chafietz. Final score last night was 65-62. Their next game will be Saturday against La Salle. Mizzou’s next game is Saturday against South Carolina, and Illinois will host #2 ranked Michigan tonight at 7PM.
