Yesterday’s Halloween episode of “The View” included a segment called “Boo Are You Wearing” . . . featuring kids in Halloween costumes based on some of the year’s hot topics. And one of those costumes may have been a bit inappropriate. A kid came out dressed as an Oscar statue . . . with a red handprint on his cheek. Obviously, he was meant to represent Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. The show’s wardrobe supervisor tried to head off the controversy right off the bat by saying, quote, “We do not want to endorse violence of any kind, but we couldn’t help but talk about one of the hottest hot topics this year.” But some Twitter users complained anyway, saying it was in bad taste and DID endorse violence. They also brought out a kid dressed as Donald Trump, complete with a toilet stuffed with classified documents, and flanked by two FBI agents. That one rubbed some people the wrong way too.
Did you really think he was done talking about this? After Restauranter Keith McNally banned (then unbanned) James Corden from his various world-famous restaurants due to his alleged nasty behavior, it seems like he really wants that last word. If you aren’t familiar with this month’s latest ‘celebrity being rude’ scandal, here is a brief timeline: McNally posted a photo of the late-night host earlier this month paired with a scathing caption accusing Corden of treating his waitstaff poorly and being the “most abusive” customer. Corden originally apologized, which McNally seemed to accept, but then kept spewing some not-so-nice stuff. Then Corden really apologized, which was accepted along with McNally’s own apology. Now, McNally is taking his apology back! The owner said: “On second viewing, I found his TV “confessional” contrived and phony. The actor will say anything to save his bacon. In the scheme of things my opinion means nothing, but after Friday’s interview and a second look at his fraudulent confessional, I’ve given up on James Corden. For Good.”
Here’s an interesting bit of celebrity trivia for you: When Julia Roberts was born, her parents’ hospital bill was paid by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King. Julia’s parents used to run a theater school in Atlanta, and one day Coretta called them and asked if her kids could join. It was the ’60s, and thanks to segregation at the time, it was hard for her to find a school that would accept them. But Julia’s parents did, and they became friends with the Kings. Then, when the Roberts needed help paying their maternity bill, the Kings stepped up.
Kim Kardashian may have been just a tad bit overdressed for this occasion.As the SKIMS founder revealed in an Oct. 30 Instagram Story, she attended Tracee Ellis Ross‘ birthday dinner over the weekend wearing a Mystique costume for the event. But, as Kim noted, her choice of clothing may not have totally matched the theme. “That time I showed to a birthday dinner in full costume when it wasn’t a costume party!” Kim wrote alongside a photo of herself… “Happy Birthday to the most beautiful kind soul @traceeellisross.”
Sure, Halloween was yesterday. But let’s keep the fun going. The “New York Post” put together a list of horror movie villains according to each zodiac sign.

- Taurus(April 20th to May 20th): Jennifer Check from “Jennifer’s Body”

- Cancer(June 21st to July 22nd): Jason Voorhees from the “Friday the 13th” franchise
- Leo(July 23rd to August 22nd): Pennywise from “IT”
- Virgo(August 23rd to September 22nd): Leatherface from “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre”
- Libra(September 23rd to October 22nd): Michael Myers from “Halloween”
- Scorpio(October 23rd to November 21st): Candyman from “Candyman”

At a time when it seems like every horror property is being dug up and re-animated, the one title that HASN’T come up is “Friday the 13th”. But that’s only because the rights had been tied up in court for years. But everything’s settled now, and a PREQUEL SERIES is in development at Peacock. No plot details have been announced yet. But there’s talk it could be something like the “Psycho” prequel series “Bates Motel”. Remember, Jason’s backstory is that his mom was the cook at Camp Crystal Lake, and he DROWNED there because the counselors were too busy having PREMARITAL SEX to watch him. So, in the original “Friday the 13th” movie, SHE’S the killer, offing the new counselors to prevent the camp from re-opening. Jason only appears in a jump-scare at the very end. “Bates Motel” was about the twisted relationship between Norman and his mother BEFORE the events of “Psycho” . . . so if you’re hoping for the Jason with the hockey mask and the machete, that might not be what this is.
Folks…let your mom know…. Hallmark Channel is coming to Peacock.

The linear channels available will include Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and Hallmark Drama. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Simon Cowell admitted he was a nightmare child because he started drinking and smoking cigarettes at only eight years old. But his antics didn’t stop there. In an interview with “The Sun”, he said, quote, “I once nearly burned the house down. I was trying to prove to my brother that Father Christmas wasn’t real, so I found the costume and set fire to the beard.” Simon said he dropped the beard on a sofa and sent the whole room up in flames. He also stole his dad’s car when he was 10 and, of course, crashed it, just like he would with his e-bikes as an adult. Oh, and he was arrested when he was 12 for pointing a pea-shooting gun at a bus driver.
Kanye West was at his son Saint’s soccer game when he got into a heated exchange with another parent. The incident went down Saturday. You can see Kim sitting in a lawn chair surrounded by security while an animated Kanye stands about 30 feet away. It’s unclear exactly what he’s upset about, but you see Kanye waving his arms in frustration. From there, another woman who is a family friend approaches Ye, appears to say something and then he storms off. According to witnesses, Kanye came back a few minutes later, after cooling off, and watched the rest of the game without incident.
Post Malone just got another vote for coolest guy ever. After his show in Tulsa Friday night, he was signing autographs for fans, when a couple handed him a big envelope with the gender of their baby inside. Here he is having fun with the reveal.
Last week, Red Hot Chili Peppers showed off their Nirvana inspiration during a gig. Yes…they covered Nirvana’s, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” The setup was a little bit different than usual for Red Hot Chili Peppers. John Frusciante, the Chili Peppers guitarist, took lead vocals for the gritty grunge song’s chorus. Lead vocalist Anthony Kiedis handled the verses. ((AUDIO))

The Rolling Stones have only released one studio album since 2005. But the band is now recording a new one. And it will feature their late drummer, Charlie Watts, on “some of the tracks,”. Watts, the longtime drummer of The Rolling Stones, died last year at 80. Ronnie Wood said: “We are recording the new album now, and we are going to LA in a few weeks to carry it on and finish it off. “Charlie is on some of the tracks and drummer Steve Jordan.” Jordan is The Rolling Stones’ current touring drummer. The Rolling Stones’ last original studio album, A Bigger Bang, came out in 2005.
Speaking of the Stones…. There’s a country-based Rolling Stones tribute album in the pipeline called “Stoned Cold Country”. It’ll be out sometime next year, and some of the artists on it include: Eric Church, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, and Brooks & Dunn.

The Blues were handed a 5-1 loss on last night by the Los Angeles Kings here at Enterprise Center. It’s the first time the Blues have lost five in a row in regulation since February of 2018. The Blues didn’t wait till the third period to blow it though instead they did it in the second period, allowing four goals in six minutes to go from being down 1-0 to trailing 5-0 and bringing an early end to goalie Jordan Binnington’s evening. And get this the Blues were booed off the ice after the second period and hardly anyone was still around at the end of the game. The Blues now have two days off until they face the New York Islanders on Thursday, looking to avoid a six-game losing streak for the first time since 2014. Game 3 of the World Series was postponed last night due to rain in Philadelphia. It’ll take place tonight instead. But Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander provided some entertainment for the locals. When the team bus rolled up to Citizens Bank Park yesterday, the fans were waiting. And Justin FLIPPED THEM THE BIRD through the window. Then when he stepped off the bus, he gave them ANOTHER ONE. And in typical Philly fashion, they LOVED it. (WARNING: The video contains some background profanity.)
When it comes to every baseball game you always want the best umps right? Especially in the World Series… So, the inclusion of umpire Pat Hoberg — the most accurate ump in baseball — was an absolute must. In Saturday’s Game 2, Hoberg showed exactly why he’s the best, and he made history in the progress. According to Umpire Scorecards, Hoberg made World Series history by calling a perfect game behind the plate. Out of the 129 taken pitches in the game, Hoberg made the correct call on every single one of them. Considering that pitchers are throwing with more velocity and movement than ever before, that is nothing short of a legendary performance from Hoberg in his first World Series assignment. He saved his best performance for the biggest moment of his umpiring career, and MLB fans were more than happy to recognize the accomplishment. More umps should be like Hoberg. Ya know perfect…
You guys see this Pujols bat stuff going around? The Houston Astros‘ Martin Maldonado asked Pujols to send him some bats prior to the start of the World Series. He used the slugger’s model in Game 1 and was later informed it was not a legal bat. So here’s some audio from Game 2 explaining what happened. Reporters were discussing the exchange of bats from Pujols to Maldonado ahead of Game 1, so it certainly wasn’t some great behind-closed-doors conspiracy (LINK) (LINK)
We briefly talked about that Michigan Michigan State fight in the tunnel and that is heating up but the very next day another viral college fight happened. My mother in law was talking about how intense this was and she wasn’t wrong. All hell broke loose during Ole Miss and LSU’s women’s soccer match on Sunday … with players throwing punches before getting ejected.
The madness unfolded during the second overtime of the close match … when LSU’s Maya Gordon and Ole Miss’ Ramsey Davis were trying to gain possession of the ball … and Gordon took issue with Davis grabbing her by the waist in defense. That’s when fists started to fly — Gordon and Davis threw a series of punches at one another, with some shots appearing to connect with their intended target. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the end — LSU player Rammie Noel sprinted across the pitch to insert herself into the fight … seemingly dragging Davis down to the ground by her hair. Coaches were able to restore some semblance of order … but Gordon, Davis, and Noel all received red cards and were ejected from the match for their actions. One of the women were crying as they left the field and it was a mess. In the end, the Tigers lost 3-0 in pks I believe… and all three involved players reportedly received one-game suspensions.
The Cleveland Browns rolled past the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals 32-13 on Monday Night Football. The Browns held the Bengals scoreless until the fourth quarter, notching five sacks and one interception on Joe Burrow. Amari Cooperhad a season-high 131 receiving yards and a touchdown, while Nick Chubb added two touchdowns and 101 rushing yards. Cleveland snapped a four-game losing streak to improve to 3-5 on the season. Bengals cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie (knee) and Tre Flowers (hamstring) both left the game with injuries and did not return
