As a New Yorker should you NOT fall for a very New York scam? Alec Baldwin did. He and his wife Hilaria bought what they thought were $40 tickets for a “boat tour” of the Statue of Liberty. He shared a picture of the “Tours R Us” ticket, writing: “We are escorted to a shuttle bus. To New Jersey! I kid you not. We paid. Then we read the tickets. NO ON EVER MENTIONED NEW F***ING JERSEY!!! This is a scam.” Baldwin picked the ticket up at the South Ferry.

The Chrisleys, best known for their reality show Chrisley Knows Best, had been the subject of a two-year tax investigation. They were accused of underpaying taxes from 2008-2016. In fact, the Chrisleys were able to prove that they overpaid four of those years and only owe less than $100,000 for an incorrect filing one year. “Julie and I knew all along that we had done nothing wrong and that when the facts all came out, we would be fine,” said Todd.
Late Rapper Lil Peep’s mother is suing his talent company and record label for negligence, breach of contract and wrongful death. Liza Womack is suing First Access Entertainment and certain individuals she says “fostered, promoted and encouraged” drug use to control the artist. He overdosed on a tour bus and died in 2017. Among other charges, the lawsuit claims Belinda Mercer, tour manager, had a sexual relationship with the rapper and provided him with ketamine. Also, the record label “had the power, they had the influence and control over HIS career, and specifically this tour. There are duties associated with having that type of control.” Womack said, “What HE had to live through is actually horrifying to me, and I’m sure he’s not the only person his age in this situation.”

Plus the movie has apparently inspired people to search for “Joker”-related naughty content on Pornhub. Supposedly, Pornhub got a massive spike in searches over the weekend . . . and there were more than 741,000 searches involving the word “JOKER” in the first four days following the movie’s release. The biggest surge came Sunday when Pornhub saw 291,628 searches for joker or clown-related porn. Also, Pornhub did say that there was a spike in ‘Harley Quinn’ searches when “Suicide Squad” came out . . .And that character, played by Margot Robbie, is the most popular movie or game character on their site, with over 10 million searches last year alone.
Judd Nelson, star of The Breakfast Club, said he has no problems with the film from 1985,. Molly Ringwald, his love interest in the film, did a New Yorker editorial where she mentioned that Nelson’s character sexually harassed her character throughout the movie.

A “John Wick” spin-off is in the works. It’s called “Ballerina”, and it’s about a young female assassin who wants revenge against the people who killed her family.

Courtney Love’s Hole was one of the most culturally significant alternative rock bands of the ’90s, and their output has remained mostly contained within that decade. Their first three albums were released in the ’90s, although they reunited for a fourth album, Nobody’s Daughter, in 2010. While that reunion only lasted a couple years, it looks like another comeback could be on the horizon: Love has shared a new photo of a rehearsal with the band.The picture shows Love performing with drummer Patty Schemel, who was in Hole from 1992 to 1998, and bassist and backup vocalist Melissa Auf der Maur, who was with the band from 1994 to 1999. Between 1992 and 1999, Hole released their most successful albums, 1994’s Live Through This and 1998’s Celebrity Skin.Love captioned the photo, “Whose rusty af? Ladies !!! #hole #rehearsal # tonight #hollywood

If you’re into the “Scream” movies, this is an experience you won’t want to miss: There’s going to be a party Halloween night at the house that was used in the original 1996 movie. Tickets are 200 bucks and only 150 are available. Also, you HAVE TO be in costume . . . but not necessarily a “Scream” costume. Someone actually lives in the house, but it’s been rented out this weekend, and you can take selfies all over . . . and there will be movies ON VHS in the living room and Jiffy Pop on the stove. Of course, you’ll have to be able to get to Santa Rosa, California . . . because that’s where the house is.

Yesterday I mentioned David Draiman from the band Disturbed wants to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. He says it’s about time rock singers were represented. Well I’ll assume he is in now that Corey Taylor from Slipknot is giving his full support. He Tweeted, quote, “It’s long overdue for rock and metal to be represented at the Super Bowl. Let’s make our voices heard in support of our brother David Draiman of Disturbed and let the NFL know we want him to sing the anthem.”
The Beatles Abbey Road debuted in 1969 but it is back in the Billboard 200’s top 10 for the first time since 1970, jumping from #71 to #3 on the chart thanks to its 50th anniversary reissue. The LP sold 81,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. for the week with 70,000 of that total in pure album sales. Meanwhile, OfficialCharts.com says Abbey Road went all the way to #1 on the latest UK chart, setting a new record for the album with the longest time between #1 positions at 49 years and 252 days. The Beatles previously held that record thanks to Sgt. Pepper, which had a gap of 49 years and 125 days between topping the chart, when its 50th anniversary re-release reached #1 in June 2017.

Today the Cardinals and Braves will play Game 5 of their NLDS series in Atlanta. Winner moves on, loser goes home. The Cards had a fantastic 10th inning walk off win in St. Louis on Monday, and now the series shifts to ATL for the deciding Game 5. As far as on the mound, it’s a rematch of Game 3. Jack Flaherty will take the mound for the Cardinals. First pitch is scheduled for 4PM.
The winner of that series will take on the winner of the Dodgers/Nationals series. That series has also came down to game #5. Those two teams will meet today in LA. The only other series that is going on is the ALDS between the Rays and Astros. Last night Tampa beat Houston 4-1 to force Game 5. Game 5 will take place tomorrow night in Houston. First pitch is scheduled for 6PM.
Monday night’s Cardinals game was a thriller, but fewer people were in the stands than a typical regular-season game. Disrespect from TV network executives may be to blame. Despite being a “can’t miss game,” thousands of Cardinals fans did. Total paid attendance for the NLDS Game 4: 42,203. It was the first-ever non-sell out playoff game in Busch III history. Even fewer walked though the gates. The maximum capacity at Busch III is just under 46,000. At it’s peak, according to data from Nielson, 45% of all TVs turned on in the St. Louis area during the 10th inning, had the Cardinals game on their TV.
Yadier Molina’s walk-off sacrifice fly in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Braves was just one more in a long line of Molina moments for Cardinals fans over the years. This one comes with an extra cool tidbit, though. Molina’s brother, Bengie, who had a long and succesful career as a player as well, was on the Spanish call of the game with play by play man Polo Ascencio. The two have been doing games for a few years, but this is the first time they have had the chance to do it in the playoffs. Check out the call.
The mayor of Oakland confirmed in a television interview Tuesday that Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred warned city officials that the Athletics could relocate to Vegas if the city didn’t drop its lawsuit to stop Alameda County from selling its share of the Coliseum to the team. Oakland and Alameda County share ownership of the Coliseum and the city wants Alameda County to sell its half of the stadium to the city instead of to the A’s. The San Francisco Chronicle reports the city can’t match the A’s offer of $85 million for the venue.

Some NHL teams placate their fans with free hats or magnetic schedules. The Philadelphia Flyers, however, know what their fans really want: the opportunity to smash a flat-screen television with a hockey stick. The Flyers announced on Tuesday that the Wells Fargo Center now has a “Disassembly Room,” the first-ever “rage room” inside a major professional sports arena. Located behind a “hidden” library wall entrance in the team’s new “Assembly Room” lounge and bar area, the anger cave allows Flyers fans to take out their aggression on household items like TVs, dishware, bottles and guitars using a variety of tools like baseball bats, orange and black sledgehammers and, of course, hockey sticks. Fans wear protective gear during the session, and there’s also an observation room.
