DEAN MARTIN’s daughter Deana Martin is definitely NOT a fan of JOHN LEGEND’s new version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, which makes the song more P.C. It’ll be on his new album, which will be out on Friday. On a British talk show, Deana said she likes John, but she’s “absolutely” offended that he rewrote the lyrics. She said, quote, “It’s absurd. I think what he’s done is, he’s stealing the thunder from Frank Loesser’s song and from my Dad. He should write his own song if he doesn’t like this one. But don’t change the lyrics. It’s a classic, perfect song.”
In a new interview for Variety’s recovery issue, Jamie Lee Curtis admits she once “did cocaine and freebased” with her dad and fellow actor, Tony Curtis. Jamie Lee, who came clean with her own Vicodin addiction last year, said her dad got sober “for a short period of time,” but that “it didn’t last long.” One of her siblings, Nicholas, also died of a heroin overdose when he was 21, which helps explain why Jamie Lee has been sober for nearly 20 years. BTW in the issue as well is Danny Trejo talking up his sobriety. Trejo went from a 24 year old heroin addict, to a sober, prolific actor. Now 75, Trejo credits his continued success with his role of giving back, saying “Everything good that has happened to me has happened as a direct results of helping someone else.”

It is very subtle so you really gotta listen close…(AUDIO) In the song, Chanel repeats the name “Sharon Stone” 33 times and the name “Sharon” 99 times.

The show is being developed for Warner Media, so it’s going to end up on one of their platforms, which include TNT, TBS, TruTV and HBO Max. There’s a new trailer for “Bad Boys for Life” on the blog

A Las Vegas casino is suing Evander Kane, claiming the San Jose Sharks forward failed to pay back $500,000 in gambling markers given to him in April. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas filed the lawsuit against Kane on Monday, saying he took out eight separate credits that totaled $500,000 in mid-April. Markers are special credits that allow gamblers, if qualified, to more easily receive access to large amounts of money on the spot. Kane and the Sharks were in Las Vegas when he allegedly used the markers, as San Jose played the Golden Knights in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The 28-year-old Kane is in the second year of a seven-year, $49 million deal he inked with the Sharks. The Sharks did not comment.
Los Angeles Chargers owner Dean Spanos strongly denied a report that the NFL team could potentially relocate to London, saying, “It’s total f***ing bulls**t. We’re not going to London. We’re not going anywhere. We’re playing in Los Angeles. This is our home. Period.” Spanos’ denial came after The Athletic reported Monday that the Chargers and the NFL could look at moving the team to London, partly because of concerns about the Los Angeles market.
The Carolina Panthers have put quarterback Cam Newton on injured reserved, which means he will be out for the rest of the regular season, with the possibility of returning if the Panthers make the playoffs.

Newton has missed the last six games, replaced by Kyle Allen, while trying to recover from the injury he initially suffered during the preseason. Many people are saying you may never see Cam Newton throw a pass in a Carolina jersey again. Also speaking of QBs, Nick Foles is returning to action in Jacksonville – and it looks like that’s the end of the Gardner Minshew II era. The team has announced that Nick Foles WILL be the starting quarterback.
Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins was suspended for 25 games yesterday by the NBA after testing positive for a growth hormone.

You don’t need to know much about football to know that the most basic objective of the game is to move the ball from one end of the field to the other. Only twice in the NFL’s 99-year history have teams lost yards in a game. The worst offenders were the Seattle Seahawks, 40 years ago today, in a game against the Los Angeles Rams played at the Kingdome. The Seahawks netted -7 yards that game. The negative yardage was the result of a total -30 passing yards and 23 running yards in the positive direction. The Hawks had the ball for a total of 35 plays, meaning the team averaged -7 inches per play. The game ended with a final score of 24-0.
