A Down and Dirty “Quickie”

Seattle Seahawks running back MARSHAWN LYNCH wants to trademark his famous line, “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.”    Well….Coach PETE CARROLL says it’s a bad decision.

(–And let’s face it, nobody knows more about bad decisions than Pete Carroll!)


President George Clooney????

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present President George Clooney!

Sorry, ladies, but we’ll probably never see President GEORGE CLOONEY at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Various ‘Rag Mag’ reports tell us that Clooney has big political ambitions and will be endorsing the Democrats in 2016, but the past may come back to haunt him.

Insiders claim his history of drugs, boozing, womanizing and “secret criminal connections” will kill any hope he has of making it to the White House.

And while we’re on the subject, it’s time for Donald Trump to once again say he’s seriously considering running — and that he really means it this time.

Trump publicly flirted with a presidential run in both 2000 and 2012.


Madonna Fell Off The Stage Last Night!

MADONNA is definitely not the Caped Crusader.

She performed last night at the BRIT Awards in London, and during her new single, “Living For Love,” she was standing on a staircase leading up to the stage, but her cape got in the way and she fell. But, since Madonna is a pro, she brushed it off and finished the number. The cape was really long and she got all tangled up in it.

Minutes after it happened, Madonna’s fall became an instant worldwide meme.


Will Lester Holt Replace Brian Williams????

LESTER HOLT is filling in for BRIAN WILLIAMS during his suspension and isn’t worried about the future of his sweet gig.

Photographers for TMZ.com caught up with the Lester and asked if he’d fight Brian for the anchor job in six months! The pro simply laughed off the question before hopping in a chauffeured, shiny black SUV.

Sean Penn Throws Madonna Under The Bus

Sean Penn has been married two times.  Once to Madonna and once to Robin Wright…but he threw both ladies under the bus by telling Esquire Magazine that if he marries Charlize Theron, he would consider it his “first marriage.”

His exact quote was, “You say I’ve been married twice before but I’ve been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today, so I wouldn’t even consider it a third marriage, I’d consider it a first marriage on its own terms.”

Sean Penn has been dating Charlize Theron for over a year.

Kim starts by taking off her makeup with Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes.  That’s the part you CAN afford, because a pack of seven only costs $1.83.  But things go pretty high-end from there.  She also uses . . .

A Refreshing Cleansing Gel by Terry Pureté de Rose:  $52. Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Rich Cream:  $455. C+C Vitamin Cream:  $115. Tracie Martyn Shakti Resculpting Cream:  $155.

She also treats her psoriasis with a Quasar MD Plus at-home LED light therapy machine . . . which costs $795.  When you add up everything Kim mentions in the article, the bill comes to $2,087.75.

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden FOREVER!!!

If you don’t believe the marriage of CAMERON DIAZ and BENJI MADDEN is going to last forever, then you know NOTHING about the power of tattoos.

Leonard Nimoy Was Hospitalized with Severe Chest Pains Last Week 

“Star Trek”legend LEONARD NIMOY was hospitalized last week, supposedly for severe chest pains.

An “insider” tells “Star” magazine, quote, “At 37, Tom knows he only has a few seasons left before retirement.  He’s thinking ahead and believes he could become a huge movie star.”

Supposedly, his wife GISELE BUNDCHEN isn’t too thrilled with the idea, because she doesn’t like the thought that Tom would be hanging out with hot actresses.

Bobbi Kristina Brown Had a Tracheotomy, Which Is a Sign She May Not Recover Soon 

Doctors performed a tracheotomy on BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN this week . . . so they could move her breathing tube from her mouth to her throat.  It’s a standard procedure, and cuts down on the risk of infection.

Charlie Sheen Didn’t Return for the “Two and a Half Men” Finale 

A huge opportunity was squandered last night, because CHARLIE SHEEN did NOT return for the series finale of “Two and a Half Men”.

One can only speculate that the show’s creator, CHUCK LORRE wasn’t cool with Charlie coming back, since Charlie had said he was more than willing to do so.

Meanwhile, ANGUS T. JONES did return for a cameo, and there were cameos from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Christian Slater.


Beyoncé Will Divorce Jay Z If He Really Did Have A Love Child

A source told The National Enquirer that Beyoncé will divorce Jay Z if a 21-year-old aspiring rapper claiming to be his son….is indeed his.

Earlier this week, reports came out that the “son” filed legal documents, claiming that Jay Z was his father and that Jay Z refuses to take a paternity test.

Well, if it turns out that he IS Jay’s son that may be the breaking-point for Beyoncé.

The source explained, “Beyoncé is in pieces over what a divorce means to her. But if Jay Z has fathered a love child, I’m sure she wouldn’t have any option. There’s only so much anyone can take!”

Lance Armstrong Has to Pay $10 Million for Lying Under Oath 

In 2005, LANCE ARMSTRONG swore under oath that he’d never used performance-enhancing drugs.  Well it would appear that was never NOT using performance-enhancing drugs.

And it’s not a good idea to commit perjury because an arbitration panel in Texas just ordered Lance to pay a $10 million penalty to the sports insurance company that paid his Tour de France bonuses.

That’s the largest sanction against an individual in U.S. history.  Under oath, Lance had said, quote, “I race the bike straight up fair and square.”  LIVE STRONG!

Taylor Swift’s Manifest Dynasty Continues

The TAYLOR SWIFT Task Force has claimed another victim.  Last month, the New York Daily News did a feature on RONNIE CREMER, the guy who gave Taylor Swift guitar lessons when she was a kid, and helped her record a demo.

The day after the story came out, Ronnie bought the domain name ITaughtTaylorSwift.com. Last week, Taylor’s lawyers told Ronnie that his website (quote), “incorporates the famous Taylor Swift trademark in its entirety and suggests that the Domain Name and your use of the Domain Name are also highly likely to dilute, and to tarnish, the famous Taylor Swift trademark.”

But, Ronnie’s not going to budge. He said he bought the domain name from GoDaddy, and he’s keeping it.


Will Jon Stewart Take Over for Brian Williams? 

Some people think there’s a chance JON STEWART could be taking over for BRIAN WILLIAMS at NBC.  The speculation is all about TIMING.

News of Jon’s “Daily Show” departure and Brian’s “NBC Nightly News” suspension hit the Internet at almost the exact same time . . . and Brian’s suspension is up at almost the exact same time as Jon’s Comedy Central contract.

(–It’s all one big conspiracy theory at this point.)

In any event, this is interesting:  In 2009, Brian Williams was a runner-up in “Time” magazine’s online poll of America’s Most Trusted Newscasters.  He had 29% of the vote.  And coming in first with 44% was:  Jon Stewart.

The 27-year-old woman who was supposed to marry CHARLES MANSON supposedly only wanted to do it so she could get his remains after he dies, and that’s why the wedding is off.

A guy who’s writing a book about Manson claims the woman and a friend wanted to display his body in a glass coffin to make money.

KANYE WEST isn’t taking back his ignorant comments about how BEYONCÉ deserved Album of the Year, and how BECK should give his award to her.

Kanye said he didn’t mean to imply that Beck wasn’t an artist (even though that’s exactly what he did.)  He said it was only aimed at the Grammys, because, quote, “Beck knows that Beyoncé should’ve won.”

Beck stayed classy about the whole thing . . . to the point where he even PRAISED Kanye.  He said, quote, “Absolutely, I thought [Beyoncé] was going to win.  I still love [Kanye], and think he’s genius.  I aspire to what he does.  How many great records has he put out in the last five years, right?”
