HONEY BOO BOO HAS MADE BARBARA WALTERS MOST INTERESTING LIST…REALLY??
BARBARA WALTERS has revealed that HONEY BOO BOO made her list of the year's "Most Fascinating People" even though she knows you may not approve. She says, quote, "A lot of people will say, 'For heaven's sake, this is ridiculous, this is a child at five or six years old entering beauty contests. "But the relationship between Alana and her mother that's the story, the two of them. It's very touching It's a love story. It's a very sweet, loving story. "Honey Boo Boo is not an obnoxious little girl. She's sweet and loving with her mother and loving with her sisters. And now Anna has a new baby, and the baby has [three] thumbs, but so what? It'll make you smile." Barbara's "Most Fascinating People" special airs on ABC next Wednesday. She'll have 10 selections, and she previously announced seven of the others. They are: One Direction, Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, Ben Affleck and Hillary Clinton. Her MOST "fascinating" person won't be announced until the special airs . . . but that still leaves one remaining selection, which will probably be revealed in the coming days so she can drum up more publicity for the show.
MATT DAMON MADE A PRETTY AWKWARD SALAD TOSSING JOKE ON THE TODAY SHOW YESTERDAY…
On the "Today" show yesterday, MATT DAMON was asked to help a viewer who wrote in that he was distressed because his girlfriend, quote, "tosses salad with her hands without washing them and tastes everything with her fingers." He replied, quote, "That's not what they taught me about tossing salad."
EYE BLEACH ANYONE? ARETHA FRANKLIN ALLEGEDLY HAD A GARGANTUAN NIP SLIP AT THE WHITE HOUSE!
If this really happened there NEED to be pictures: ARETHA FRANKLIN may have accidentally bared her gargantuan CANS during a visit to the White House. She was there for this weekend's Kennedy Center Honors. And her rep supposedly told "USA Today" that the upper half of her gown wasn't hooked properly, and slid down to her waist. According to the rep, this mishap exposed Aretha's, quote, "foundation-wearing girls in all their Victoria's Secret glory!" That doesn't seem like something someone's own rep would say about them, but "USA Today" is a fairly reputable source. Anyway, here's a picture of Aretha in the dress. You can see how it might go south on her.
AND SPEAKING OF EYE BLEACH, ANDERSON COOPER WENT BLIND FOR 36 HOURS LAST WEEK BECAUSE HIS EYEBALLS GOT SUNBURNT!
ANDERSON COOPER went BLIND for 36 hours last week, while he was on assignment in Portugal for "60 Minutes". The cause of his blindness was SUNBURNED EYEBALLS. On his show yesterday, Anderson said he was out in the ocean on a boat for about two hours. And even though it was overcast, the UV light bouncing off the water did a number on his eyes. He said, quote, "I wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like my eyes are on fire, my eyeballs and I think, oh maybe I have sand in my eyes or something. "I douse my eyes with water. Anyway, it turns out I have sunburned my eyeballs and I go blind. I went blind for 36 hours." NBC's chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman said, quote, "It's a reminder that frankly everyone needs sunglasses. Fortunately for you you're going to be fine, but it's a real reminder." Anderson showed a picture of himself after receiving treatment, with his right eye bandaged.
RAINN WILSON SAYS THERE’S TALK OF STEVE CARRELL COMING BACK TO THE OFFICE!
Ever since NBC announced that this would be the final year of "The Office", people have been wondering if STEVE CARELL would be back before the show ended. Well, it could definitely happen. RAINN WILSON . . . a.k.a. Dwight . . . says, quote, "There's talk of it. He's a very busy man and a huge movie star, so it's going to be a tough one. But, we'll see what we can do."
THE BLUES BROTHERS REUNITED LAST NIGHT FOR A HOUSE OF BLUES MILESTONE IN MASS!
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the opening of the first House of Blues in Cambridge, MA, co-founder Dan Aykroyd as his alter-ego Elwood Blues and Jim Belushi, doing his best to fill the role of Jake Blues made famous by his late brother, John Belushi, as the other half of the Blues Brothers, opened for ZZ Top last night at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. Last night’s performance was bittersweet, not only because of the absence of John Belushi, but also because of the loss in May of Blues Brothers Band bassist Donald “Duck” Dunn, who died at the age of 70. Prior to last night’s gig, Aykroyd told Rolling Stone, “Duck was a key advisor to us. He was the life of the band and one of the funniest people I’ve known in my life.”
HOLY CRAP, THE SOUND CITY DOCUMENTARY IS GONNA BE EPIC…
The Dave Grohl-directed documentary Sound City, which peels back the curtain on the making of some of rock’s most important albums in one of Los Angeles’ most iconic, unsung and low-tech recording studios, will officially premiere at the annual Sundance Film Festival next month, ahead of its scheduled release in February 2013. An extended trailer for the superstar-packed film has just been released, and you can watch it here.
TOM MORELLO SAYS HE DOESN’T KNOW IF IT’S GONNA HAPPEN BUT HE WOULD LIKE TO SEE RAGE GET BACK TOGETHER…
So, what's the deal with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE? Are they still together? Will they be doing any more live shows or releasing new music? Guitarist TOM MORELLO says that they don't have plans to do ANYTHING at the moment but if it were his call, they'd be more active. He tells "Rolling Stone", quote, "If it were up to me, I would've made two records a year. As it is, we have just three records of original material over 20 years . . . Whether or not we ever play music again in any capacity is unknown. "There's no plans, no current direction of anything . . . It was my great hope that we'd celebrate [our] 20th anniversary with a five-continent world tour." Tom says the problem is not that the band doesn't get along he says he and singer ZACK DE LA ROCHA talk "fairly regularly," and considers the band "brothers in arms" . . . it's just getting everyone to want to do it. He says they meet up every year and "very seriously discuss" their options however they usually just end up, quote, "turning down awesome offers to tour the world."

JOHNATHAN DAVIS: THE ACTOR?
Professing to be “in shock” over the overwhelming positive response for the film, Jonathan Davis of Korn stars in Wounded Warriors, a short film set to premiere online today at Monsterenergy.com and on television in May 2013 on The Pentagon Channel. Wounded Warriors (winner of the Audience Choice Award at the 2012 GI Film Festival in Hollywood) documents Davis’ return to Ramstein Air Base in Germany this past August to visit with troops stationed there as well as soldiers in transit from Iraq and Afghanistan. Reacting to the high praise the film has received, Davis said, “I’m just in shock. This film is not about me. It is about all the troops and what they sacrifice to keep our life going. I am truly grateful for every single one of them.”
TIME MAGAZINE HAS RELEASED THE YEAR-END LIST OF ALL LISTS!
We're in that period when year-in-review lists come out constantly and the people at "Time" magazine went WAY overboard this year. They just released 55 top 10 lists for 2012. That's too much for ANYONE to consume. So here are some of the highlights.
-- Best Comeback. They gave it to Barack Obama, ahead of people and things like Peyton Manning, the Olympics, and boy bands.
-- Best Scandal. The General Petraeus affair came in first, beating out Lance Armstrong, the Chick-fil-A gay marriage thing, and the Secret Service prostitutes.
-- Best Meme. If you don't know, a 'meme' is a viral thing that appears everywhere in pop culture. Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and all the parodies it spawned came in first. It beat "Fifty Shades of Grey" and Jeremy 'Linsanity.'
-- Best App. Kind of a strange pick. They went with OnLive Desktop, which is a tablet app that lets you access Microsoft Office. Instagram only came in sixth, but it's been around for a while.
-- Best Gadget. The iPhone 5 came in first, beating out Nintendo's new Wii U.
-- Biggest Campaign Gaffe. They gave it to Mitt Romney's 47% comment. It only covered the presidential campaign, and neither of the rape comments from Senate candidates made the list.
-- Biggest U.S. News Story. President Obama's reelection was the biggest story. Hurricane Sandy was second, Obamacare being upheld was third, the Trayvon Martin story was fourth, and the "Dark Knight Rises" and Wisconsin Sikh temple shootings were fifth.
-- Biggest Overreported Story. Bath salts . . . the drug, NOT the salts you actually put in a bathtub . . . and the way they turn people into CANNIBALS. The Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce came in second, Linsanity was third, the Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart relationship came in fourth, and campaign gaffes came in fifth.
THE PLOT THICKENS WITH THE “HOMELESS BAREFOOT” MAN…
The barefoot panhandler who received shoes from a kind NYPD officer last month is apparently not homeless. Officials said Jeffrey Hillman has an apartment in the Bronx. Hillman used to be homeless, but entered a shelter in 2009 before moving into an apartment secured by Veterans Affairs in 2011. He pays his rent using a lifetime voucher for homeless veterans and his Social Security income. Despite having stable housing, Hillman panhandles in Times Square, usually without shoes. Officer Larry DePrimo was photographed buying a pair of $100 boots for Hillman and his act of kindness went viral. But when Hillman was spotted Saturday night, the shoes were nowhere to be seen. Hillman has offered varying accounts of why he was not wearing them.

R.I.P. BESSE COOPER, THE WORLD’S OLDEST WOMAN AT 116! HER SECRET?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE TEXT MESSAGE!
OMG! This week marks the 20th birthday of the text message. The very first text was sent on December 3, 1992, by a UK engineer named Neil Papworth. It read simply, “Merry Christmas.” While texting remains a favorite method of communication (it’s definitely preferred over actually talking on the phone or- gasp- face-to-face), research shows it’s been on the decline lately. Experts say costly text messaging plans are being replaced by free alternatives like BlackBerry Messenger and Google Chat. One thing’s for sure…sexting isn’t going anywhere.
I’VE JUST GOTTEN INTO WALKING DEAD AND LOVE IT BUT THIS IS A LITTLE MUCH…
SOME LADY WATCHING THE ‘BAMA/GEORGIA GAME GOT ARRESTED FOR FONDLING TOO MANY PEOPLE’S CROTCHES?!
On Saturday, EVERYONE at two bars called El Jinete and Friends Sports Grill in Dacula, Georgia was focused on the Georgia-Alabama college football game, to decide who'd play for the national championship. Except for a 46-year-old woman named Jana Lawrence. She was mostly focused on RUBBING CROTCHES. Apparently, during the game, Jana was extraordinarily drunk and GRABBY. She groped men's junk AND women's junk around the bar all with her pants slipping lower and lower. She also apparently licked a guy. That doesn't sound necessarily like a bad thing a huge football game AND some free genital stimulation but Jana looks like she's had a ROUGH 46 years. If she'd been HOT, people probably would've let this slide. But sadly, that wasn't the case. So the cops eventually came and arrested her for sexual battery, simple battery, public indecency, and public drunkenness. At the jail, a female deputy told Jana she was going to search her and Jana asked the deputy if she wanted a girlfriend!
YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP…ORMOND BEACH WOMAN ARRESTED FOR THROWING AROUND POOP-FILLED PAPER TOWELS AROUND AT WALMART
A NEW ZEALAND MAN WENT BLIND DRINKING VODKA AND SOMEHOW WHISKEY BROUGHT IT BACK!
Talk about getting blind drunk! A New Zealand man lost his sight after drinking vodka, then regained it again by drinking whiskey! Denis Duthie, 65, had been knocking back a couple of vodkas in honor of his parents’ anniversary when the alcohol mixed badly with his diabetes medication, causing his vision to disappear. At the hospital, doctors immediately suspected methanol poisoning as the cause for his blindness, so to counteract this, docs administered ethanol - the type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages. But there wasn't enough medical ethanol available in the hospital, so a staff member was sent to a nearby liquor store to purchase some Johnnie Walker Black. The whiskey was dripped into his stomach through a tube and five days later, he could see again! Sure beats a hangover!
REASON #5,389 NOT TO DO METH
On Monday, 36-year-old Melissa Wolf of Preble County, Ohio was arrested for manufacturing meth. But it's clear that she was also dipping heavily into her merchandise. Back in July of last year, Melissa was arrested and took a mugshot photo. She looks fairly normal. In the past year, she's obviously done an incredible amount of meth. Because in her new mugshot, less than a year-and-a-half later, she's been DESTROYED. She's aged 20 years. Her skin looks sick, her hair has lost its color, and her face is covered in BLOOD SPOTS and scabs. It's an INSANE difference. Please don't do meth.
SURVEY SAYS: WHAT’S THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN IF YOU’RE HOSTING A HOLIDAY PARTY?
According to a survey by Delta Faucets, the worst thing that can go wrong when you're hosting a party is a broken toilet. More people worried about that than running out of food, or having a major appliance break down. And party GUESTS agreed and said a broken toilet is the worst thing that could happen at a party. TWO in FIVE people said they'd had a toilet-related plumbing problem while entertaining guests at their house. And one in three actually knew BEFORE the party that there was a problem with the toilet but rolled the dice anyway. One in five hosts said that they'd WORRIED about a toilet malfunction before the party and one in 10 brought in a plumber to check things out.
On paper, the Miami Heat should have wiped the floor with the Washington Wizards last night in DC. On the hardwood floor, the Wizards withstood LeBron James’ triple-double and shocked the defending champs 105-101 to earn just their second win of the season. Jordan Crawford paced Washington with 22 points, while James finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in the loss. And speaking of losses, the Los Angeles Lakers lost their 10th contest of the season, falling to the Houston Rockets 107-105 despite Kobe Bryant’s 39-point effort. In other action: the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to fend off the Brooklyn Nets for a 117-111 road win; the Memphis Grizzlies ran their record to 13-3 after stopping the Phoenix Suns 108-98 in overtime; the Indiana Pacers got by the Chicago Bulls 80-76; and the Minnesota Timberwolves easily defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 105-88.
THIS IS NOT A JOKE: THE NEW ORLEANS HORNETS ARE CHANGING THEIR NAME TO THE PELICANS??
New Orleans professional basketball fans will have to get used to hearing this before every home game: “And now, the starting lineup for your Pelicans!” Yes, Pelicans! According to several reports, the New Orleans Hornets are expected to change their nickname to the Pelicans, perhaps as early as next season. Why? The pelican is Louisiana’s state bird. If you think the Pelicans is a terrible name for a pro basketball team, consider the alternatives: according to Yahoo Sports, the team also tossed around the Krewe and Brass as potential nicknames.

BAY(SE) PAY: GIANTS’ SCUTARO GETS NEW 3-YEAR, $20 MILLION CONTRACT
The World Series Champions San Francisco Giants managed to keep a big piece of their successful puzzle in place on Tuesday, signing second baseman Marco Scutaro to a new three-year, $20 million contract.

WISCONSIN JUST LOST THEIR HEAD COACH TO ARKANSAS
After seven years overseeing the Badgers, Wisconsin head football coach Bret Bielema decided on Tuesday to take SEC money to help lead the Arkansas Razorbacks back to National Championship status. A source close to the situation told ESPN Bielema’s deal is for six years at $3.2 million per year. Bielema will take over for the fired Bobby Petrino. Meanwhile, Auburn has tapped former offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn to be the man to lead the Tigers back to glory, handing him a brand new five-year deal worth $2.3 million annually.
BRIAN URLACHER’S OUT 2-4 WEEKS WITH A HAMMY STRAIN…
One of the most popular and productive Monsters of the Midway may have played his last game in a Chicago Bears uniform. Linebacker Brian Urlacher said Tuesday he could miss the remainder of the regular season because of a hamstring injury he suffered in the final seconds of Sunday’s overtime loss to the Seahawks. The eight-time Pro Bowler’s contract expires at the end of this season, so should the Bears fail to make the postseason, Urlacher could have seen his final snap with the Bears. He told a Chicago television station Tuesday, “I do not think that’s going to happen. But, if it does, I have had a really good and long career so I would be sad, but I would not be crushed.”
WHOOPS! CUBBIE SKIPPER SVEUM WAS ACCIDENTALLY SHOT BY HALL OF FAMER YOUNT!
The Chicago Cubs routinely shoot themselves in the foot on the way to yet another loss, but this offseason, Cubs manager Dale Sveum was accidentally shot in the back of the right ear by former teammate and Hall of Famer Robin Yount. The two were quail hunting in Arizona when Yount plunked the Loveable Loser’s latest skipper with a six-shot BB gun. Sveum said, “I got drilled with pellets in the back and then one stuck in the ear. We do it all the time. Not that close all the time, but we do get BBs fall on us.” This kind of stuff could only happen to the Chicago Cubs.
BOY BANNED: LACHEY ACCUSED OF CHOKING, PUSHING FAN, INSULTING FAN’S WIFE
The already sizzling hot story of 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey getting kicked out of San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium for trash-talking with a San Diego Chargers fans at Sunday’s game between Lachey’s Cincinnati Bengals and the hometown Chargers got a few degrees hotter on Tuesday. TMZ reports the unidentified Chargers fan is now claiming the boy band singer choked him and shoved him to the ground, and called his wife a “f***ing bitch” and “a host of other profanities.” The Chargers fan plans on pressing charges. TMZ obtained some admittedly not-so great video of the incident which you can watch here.
GOOD NEWS IS THERE IS A ROYAL BABY (OR BABIES) ON THE WAY, BAD NEWS IS KATE IS ALREADY IN THE HOSPITAL…
She's in the hospital with a very severe form of morning sickness called HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM. It's marked by nausea and vomiting, but on a more extreme scale than regular morning sickness to the point where it can lead to dehydration, malnutrition, weight loss and other problems. It's estimated that at most, only 2% of pregnant women get it. Some estimates say the number is as low as three-tenths of a percent. For most women, the issue resolves itself by about the 20th week of pregnancy. Kate will remain in the hospital for several days, after which she'll require, quote, "a period of rest." There's potential for harm to the mother and child, but this doesn't seem to be one of those cases. An interesting side note, though: Some experts say the condition is associated with TWINS. There's no word if Kate is carrying what the Brits call "an heir and a spare" at the same time. This is the first child for Kate and PRINCE WILLIAM. The baby automatically leapfrogs Britain's International Naked Billiards champion PRINCE HARRY to become third in line for the throne. That means Harry is now fourth, behind PRINCE CHARLES, Prince William and this unborn fetus. Of course, if Kate IS carrying twins, that means Harry is FIFTH. I'm pretty sure Harry doesn't mind. I think he'd rather party than be King!
HERE’S WHAT THE KID MIGHT LOOK LIKE…
REALLY? KIM KARDASHIAN IS THE MOST SEARCHED PERSON OF 2012??
After topping Bing.com's list of the Most Searched Person of 2012, KIM KARDASHIAN also sits at the top of Yahoo!'s version of the list. Although she's the highest-rated PERSON, she only came in THIRD on the overall search list, behind "Election" and "iPhone 5". Here's their Top 10:
#2.) iPhone 5
#3.) Kim Kardashian
#4.) Kate Upton
#5.) Kate Middleton
#6.) Whitney Houston
#8.) Political polls
#9.) Lindsay Lohan
#10.) Jennifer Lopez
BILL MURRAY IS BACK IN GHOSTBUSTERS 3!
This comes from HAROLD RAMIS who co-wrote the first two movies and plays Ghostbuster Egon Spengler. He says, quote, "It was kind of crazy. Just out of nowhere, I get a phone call from Bill at almost three in the morning and he simply said, 'Yeah, OK, I'm in!' That's Bill Murray for you. Surprising and straight to the point. "Bill also said a major factor in his decision to do the movie had been all the support he received from fans." That means the three main Ghostbusters Murray, Ramis and DAN AYKROYD are on board. There's no word yet on ERNIE HUDSON . . . a.k.a. the token black Ghostbuster. SIGOURNEY WEAVER is set to return, and there's even talk that RICK MORANIS will come out of retirement to take part. He hasn't acted since doing a voice in "Brother Bear 2" in 2006.
60 MINUTES & VANITY FAIR POLL JUST REVEALED THE FUNNIEST STUFF…
According to a new "60 Minutes" / "Vanity Fair" poll on humor, JAY LENO is the funniest late-night host . . . "The Simpsons" is funnier than "Family Guy" . . . men are funnier than women . . . and "Seinfeld" is the greatest sitcom. Leno beat out DAVID LETTERMAN 24% to 13%. They were followed, in this order, by Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson. But 23% of respondents said NONE OF THEM are funny. "The Simpsons" beat "Family Guy" 36% to 30% . . . while 34% said they "didn't know" which one was funnier. As far as the comedic battle of the sexes goes, I think we can call this one: MEN ARE FUNNIER THAN WOMEN. That's according to 60% of Americans. A mere 22% said women are funnier . . . while 15% said there's no difference. 22% of Americans said "Seinfeld" is the greatest sitcom, giving it a slight edge over "The Honeymooners", which got 16% of the vote. They were followed, in this order, by "Friends", "Cheers", "Arrested Development", "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "30 Rock". Oh . . . and the funniest letter of the alphabet is Q . . . followed by Z, W, P and X. Okaaay.
ALRIGHT, THIS KATT WILLIAMS FIASCO IS JUST TOO FUNNY TO LEAVE OUT…
Two Sundays ago, "comedian" KATT WILLIAMS led police on a motorcycle chase AND slapped a Target cashier. Well, this past Sunday was just as eventful. Katt was arrested following a fight at a Seattle bar . . . during which he threatened people with
a POOL CUE. Police say he also, quote, "followed a family outside of the bar where he threw a cigarette at a woman as she got into her car, hitting her in the eye." Then he threw a rock at the car. He was bailed out yesterday morning by former Death Row Records thug SUGE KNIGHT, who's Katt's tour manager.
NICK LACHEY GOT BOOTED OUT OF THE BENGALS/CHARGERS GAME!
NICK LACHEY got BOOTED from the Cincinnati Bengals / San Diego Chargers game on Sunday for TRASH TALKING. It probably didn't help that the game was in San Diego and Nick is a Cincy native and rabid Bengals fan. After getting ejected, he Tweeted, quote, "Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals." After the Bengals won, he added, quote, "Bengals win again. I'd talk trash to everyone in SD, but what's the point? You already had me kicked out of the stadium and you still lost." Click HERE for the vid!

IT’S OFFICIAL, LAMB OF GOD’S RANDY BLYTHE IS BEING CHARGED WITH MANSLAGHTER
It's official: LAMB OF GOD singer RANDY BLYTHE has been indicted on a manslaughter charge in the Czech Republic . . . and if convicted, he could be looking at a "long-term" prison sentence. Prosecutors in Prague now have three months to set a trial date or request further investigation. Randy was held in a Czech jail for FIVE WEEKS this summer, after being arrested in June. He's being blamed for the death of a 19-year-old local "fan" who died at a show in 2010. After being released, he promised he would return to the country to defend himself, if necessary. The band's manager says, quote, "Obviously, we intend to fight vigorously against these charges as we feel that in no way did Randy intend to cause bodily harm on the young fan who subsequently died from injuries sustained at the show. "Randy intends to go to Prague to defend himself at trial. While it's a tragedy that a fan died following a performance, in no way do I feel that Randy did anything improper that led to the young man's injuries and subsequent death."

MITT ROMNEY’S GOT A NEW GIG!
GOOD NEWS PARTY PEOPLE, THE WORLD’S NOT GONNA END AFTER ALL!
SOME DUDE’S BOSS JUST REWARDED HIM FOR BEING A GOOD EMPLOYEE BY BUYING HIM A NEW RIDE!
For the last 11 years, 52-year-old Chris Ninos has worked at an Internet marketing company called BMI Elite in Delray Beach, Florida. And he's driven the same 15-year-old Ford with 99,000 miles on it. Chris is the hardest worker at BMI he's always the first one to work and the last one to leave and he calls to check in on days off. So the CEO, Brandon Rosen, decided to reward him. Last Thursday, he told Chris he was having his car serviced, and asked if he could pick him up at the dealership on his way to the company's holiday luncheon. But when Chris got to the dealership, Brandon was waiting with a brand new Ford Escape SUV. It's in Chris' name not a company car and BMI even threw in three years of service!

MISTLETOE’S NOT JUST LOOKING TO HELP YOU GET A KISS THIS XMAS, IT’S ALSO LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR RECTUM!
According to a study by the University of Adelaide in Australia, the extract from mistletoe is extremely effective in FIGHTING COLON CANCER. Researchers found that using mistletoe to treat cells infected with colon cancer was just as effective as chemotherapy without the horrible side effects. More research has to be done, but this is promising. And it should make you respect the power of the mistletoe even MORE this Christmas.
HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE “PINOCCHIO EFFECT”? YOUR NOSE ACTUALLY GETS WARMER WHEN YOU LIE!
According to a study by the University of Granada in Spain, you really CAN catch someone telling a lie by checking their nose. They call it "the Pinocchio Effect" but a person's nose doesn't get bigger, it gets WARMER. Scientists looked at thermal images of people's faces, and found that different areas of their face changed temperature when they were doing different tasks. If someone was working on a difficult mental task, the temperature around their nose and the muscles in the corners of their eyes dropped and if someone was feeling anxiety, the area heated up. And when someone was LYING, the temperature around their nose also jumped.
WOULD YOU MARRY A PORN STAR?
I'm sure a lot of guys out there would date a porn star, just to see what it's like. But how many guys would MARRY one? According to a new survey, it's SHOCKINGLY high. 86% of men say they'd be willing to date a porn star and 61% would MARRY ONE. That's three out of five guys who'd be willing to spend the rest of their life with a woman who has weird, deviant sex on camera. The survey also found that 64% of people have tried positions or moves they've seen in a porno.
LEBRON HAS BEEN NAMED ‘SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR’ BUT SPORTS ILLUSTRATED…
LEBRON JAMES has been named the "Sports Illustrated" Sportsman of the Year. The honor actually surprised him. He figured he was still being judged for the way he bolted from Cleveland for the Miami Heat. He says, quote, "I remember just like yesterday when I signed here and basically, like the roof caved in."

OH SNAP, THE HEF/CRYSTAL HARRIS WEDDING IS BACK ON!
It seems Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris are giving it another go! The Playboy founder is reportedly engaged again to Playmate Harris. TMZ says that two will get hitched at the Playboy Mansion on New Year’s Eve. Hefner, 86, was previously engaged to the 26-year-old Harris, but she bailed just five days before the big day in June 2011. Harris apparently moved back into the mansion earlier this year and the two have been working out their problems. According to sources, they are better than ever and recently decided they wanted to try to get married again.
THERE’S A ROYAL BABY (OR BABIES!) ON THE WAY…
THE FEDS HAVE SEIZED LILO’S BANK ACCOUNTS AND NOW SHE’S DENYING SHE PUNCHED THE “GYPSY”
As if this wasn’t abundantly clear, sources tell TMZ that Lindsay Lohan’s drinking problem has returned. Sources close to the actress say she’s been boozing heavily for months now – sometimes as much as two liters of vodka a day! Apparently, she’s become so stressed by financial problems and her legal troubles that she’s turned to the bottle for relief. TMZ was told that prior to her Thursday morning NYC nightclub brawl, Lindsay had been drinking all day and showed up at the Justin Bieber concert already sloshed. She continued to drink throughout the night and got increasingly sloppy. She ended up assaulting fellow club-goer, psychic Tiffany Mitchell. Mitchell claims Lindsay hurled a racial slur at her at Avenue nightclub, calling her a "f**king gypsy." Mitchell’s friend shot back, telling Lindsay her Lifetime movie Liz & Dick sucked, and that’s when Lindsay allegedly threw a punch that struck Mitchell in the face. According to TMZ, Lindsay is denying the punch, but not that she called Mitchell a "gypsy." Lindsay's claiming that Mitchell approached her in the club to give her a reading, but Lindsay refused. She then claims Mitchell and her friends tried to swipe her purse. Lindsay says she confronted Mitchell and called her "gypsy," but says she did not know the word was considered a slur.

FOR SOME REASON, KAT WILLIAMS PIMP SLAPPED A TARGET EMPLOYEE OVER THE WEEKEND!
Security footage from a Sacramento Target store shows comedian KATT WILLIAMS slapping a male cashier across the face last Sunday. There's no word why he did it, because there's no sound on the video. But after he hit the guy, Katt wheeled away on a motorized scooter. Earlier in the day, Katt led police on a high-speed chase on a three-wheeled motorcycle. Cops didn't catch him, but they filed a charge of felony evasion against him.

JOHNNY DEPP POPPED IN TO PLAY SOME TUNES WITH ALICE COOPER THIS WEEKEND!
Shock rock godfather Alice Cooper and his often similarly twisted actor pal Johnny Depp shared the creaky stage of the creepy Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday night during a few scary songs as part of Cooper’s 90-minute set. Depp strapped on a guitar and lent a hand on The Doors’ deliciously dark “Break On Through (To the Other Side)” the Beatles’ raucous “Revolution” and Cooper’s own classic concert closer “School’s Out,” among others.

LED ZEPPELIN WILL BE ON LETTERMAN TONIGHT!
In the world of scoring television late show guests, getting the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin to sit down together for an ultra-rare joint interview could be the equivalent of hitting a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth to with the World Series. Rock fans worldwide will certainly be glued to their television sets tonight when Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones get together for an appearance on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman. As of now, there is no plan for the band to perform, but the hope is they’ll make an announcement about a future reunion, though again, nothing has been confirmed. But as the old saying goes, stay tuned – or in this case, tune in tonight and see. By the way, tonight's show will be broadcast from Washington, DC, where last night Led Zeppelin, Letterman and bluesman Buddy Guy were among the recipients of this year's Kennedy Center Honors, the nation's highest award for those who influenced American culture through the arts.
PAUL STANLEY'S GONNA GIVE HIS SIDE OF THE STORY WITH HIS NEW BOOK!
One can only imagine the stories Kiss singer/guitarist Paul Stanley has to tell. One won’t have to imagine for much longer now that Stanley has finally confirmed he’s in the process of writing his memoir. When asked about a potential memoir during a radio interview last week, Stanley said, “Mine is in the works. Autobiographies, for the most part, to me, are like writing a love letter to yourself.” Stanley has long fought hard to resist offers to pen his personal tales of life on and off the stage, but now says, “At this point, with the three other guys from the original lineup having written books, it’s kind of like, ‘OK, have you all said your peace? OK? Now let me tell you what happened.’”
METALLICA NOW HAS THEIR VERY OWN RECORD LABEL!
News came to light on Friday that Metallica is now the proud owner of all its master recordings including all music and long form videos, a nearly unheard of feat for any musician singed to a recording contract. In conjunction with that announcement, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band also announced the launch of its new record label, Blackened Recordings, which will serve as the home for all its recordings. Drummer Lars Ulrich said, “It’s always been about control for us as a band. Forming Blackened Recordings is the ultimate in independence, giving us 100% control and putting us in the driver’s seat of our own creative destiny.”

NORTH KOREA NOW CLAIMS TO HAVE DISCOVERED UNICORNS!
It must be great to be a scientist in a country where logic, evidence, and proof aren't required. You just make up a story and hope it's popular with the man in charge. And that, it seems, is what's behind NORTH KOREA'S latest scientific discovery. North Korea claims it's discovered UNICORNS. Now . . . so far, they aren't claiming that unicorns are running around in their gorgeous, utopian country. But they DO say scientists have found evidence that at least one key unicorn from Korean history lived there. In their state-run newspaper, they say archeologists found the lair that was once home to the unicorn ridden by an ancient Korean King named Tongmyong. Beyond proving that unicorns exist, they say it ALSO proves that the REAL center of ancient Korea was in North Korea, not South Korea.

SUCH A SAD STORY OUT OF KANSAS CITY…
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend Saturday morning before going to the team stadium and taking his own life in front of his coaches. Belcher, 25, had allegedly argued with his girlfriend, and the mother of his 3-month-old daughter, 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins, before shooting her several times. Belcher’s mother was at the home at the time and witnessed the shooting. Belcher then drove to Arrowhead Stadium where he stood in the parking lot and thanked general manager Scott Pioli, head coach Romeo Crennel and linebackers coach Gary Gibbs, for what they had done for him, before shooting himself in the head. Belcher was the latest in a string of NFL suicides, including Junior Seau, 43, and Dave Duerson, 50. Those suicides have been blamed on concussions from playing the violent sport, and a condition called chronic traumatic encephalopathy. But Belcher reportedly did not have a long history of concussions. It was not yet clear what prompted his actions.

THIS IS A WHOOOOOLE DIFFERENT TYPE OF BUTT DIALING!
This guy plugged his phone charger in a very unusual place! A Scottish prisoner named Christopher Hughes was caught with a cell phone and its charging cable hidden up his bum! The contraband was discovered when Hughes, who is serving nine years for stabbing four men, submitted to a full-body search at Castle Huntly prison near Dundee. The 25-year-old admitted to smuggling the prohibited items into jail by having them concealed within his anal cavity. He had three months tacked on to his current sentence. Gives a whole new meaning to “butt dialing!”
NFL WEEK 13 RECAP!
The New England Patriots clinched their fourth straight AFC East title, the Denver Broncos locked up the AFC West championship and the Houston Texans ran their record to 11-1 to secure a playoff spot as well. The Patriots dumped the Dolphins 23-16, the Broncos beat the Buccaneers 31-23, and the Texans torched the Titans 24-10. Elsewhere, the Green Bay Packers moved into a tie with the Chicago Bears for first in the NFC North after their 23-14 victory over the Vikings and the Bears’ 23-17 overtime loss to the Seahawks. The Baltimore Ravens are now just two games up on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North after Pittsburgh pulled out a close 23-20 win over the Ravens. The San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams once again went into overtime, this time the Rams avoided another tie by beating the Niners 16-13.
Finally, the Kansas City Chiefs managed to win just their second game of the season, defeating the Carolina Panthers 27-21 just one day after Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his 22-year old girlfriend and later shot himself to death in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium as coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli watched in horror. Here is the entire NFL scoreboard.
NBC’s Sunday Night Football play-by-play man Al Michaels said it all when he said: “Only the Cowboys would allow a 98-yard punt return with the season on the line.” Michaels was referring to Philadelphia Eagles punt returner Damaris Johnson’s dramatic score with just 31 seconds left in last night’s game in Dallas that quickly turned a Cowboys’ 11-point lead into another nail biter before Dallas recovered an onside kick to seal a 38-33 victory and keep their hopes of a playoff run alive. Tony Romo completed all 10 of his second-half passing attempts while throwing three touchdown passes to pass Troy Aikman as the franchise’s leading touchdown tosser with 169. Dez Bryant hauled in two of Tony’s TD passes and Miles Austin caught the other.
Meanwhile, the move that many New York Jets fans have wanted to see for most of the season finally occurred late in the third quarter of yesterday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Coach Rex Ryan benched starting quarterback Mark Sanchez in favor of third-stringer Greg McElroy, who promptly willed the Jets to a very ugly 7-6 win, thanks to a less-than spectacular 1-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Cumberland early in the fourth quarter. Sanchez was asked to take a seat after a nightmarish performance in which he completed just 10 of his 21 pass attempts for a mere 97 yards and three interceptions. McElroy was tossed into the action because backup quarterback Tim Tebow was inactive for the game, still nursing two broken ribs.
THE BOWL GAMES ARE SET! SOME INTERESTING MATCHUPS AND LOTS OF FANS COMPLAINING BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS PEOPLE…

THE MAGIC PUT A SMACK DOWN ON DWIGHT AND THE LAKERS! THEN D-12’S TRUE COLORS CAME OUT!
The Los Angeles Lakers continued to at times look lost on the court after their latest loss, 113-103 to the Orlando Magic on Sunday. It was Lakers center Dwight Howard’s first game against his former teammates since deciding to leave Orlando for L.A., and several of his ex-mates decided to take turns fouling him intentionally, a strategy that worked to perfection since Howard managed to sink just 9 of his 21 attempts from the stripe. After the game, Howard decided to skip exchanging congratulatory handshakes with hif former teammates and coaches, opting instead to head straight to the locker room. Arron Afflalo finished with 30 points to lead Orlando, while Kobe Bryant tallied 34 to pace the Lakers who are now 8-9 on the season. In the only other NBA contest on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points and the New York Knicks are now 7-0 at home after getting past the Phoenix Suns 106-99.
