JANEANE GARAFALO WAS MARRIED FOR 20 YEARS AND DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT?
JANEANE GAROFALO just got divorced on Saturday after 20 years of marriage. And here's the funny part: She and her husband didn't know they were even husband and wife. That's right: They were married for 20 years and had NO IDEA. Janeane dated Rob Cohen who's a producer on "The Big Bang Theory" in the early '90s. And one night in Vegas, they got hitched at a drive-thru chapel. Janeane says, quote, "We got married drunk in Vegas . . . We dated for a year, and we got married at a drive-through chapel in a cab." The thing is, they didn't think the marriage was legit because they didn't, quote, "go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff." But it WAS. And the only reason they found out is because Rob is making plans to marry someone else. Her name is Jill Leiderman, and she's a producer on "Jimmy Kimmel Live". Apparently, Rob's lawyer stumbled upon the fact that he was already hitched!

OH DEAR GOD NO, VINNY FROM JERSEY SHORE IS GETTING HIS OWN TALK SHOW NOW?
"Jersey Shore" is coming to an end but MTV isn't done with VINNY GUADAGNINO. They just announced they're giving him his own TALK SHOW. It's called "The Show with Vinny" and technically, it's also a reality show. Here's how it will work: Instead of interviewing various celebrities in a studio Vinny will invite them to his family's home in Staten Island, where they will talk and have dinner together. Naturally, Vinny's friends and family will also appear on the show including his mother Paula and his crazy Uncle Nino. There's no word when it might premiere. (--On a related note, there's an amusing video on Kontraband.com, where a fake MTV exec "explains" why they don't air music videos anymore.)
THE PRICES FOR THIS YEAR’S SUPER BOWL ADS ARE AT AN ALL TIME HIGH AND THEY’RE ALMOST SOLD OUT!
CBS will air this season's Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3rd and the commercial time is almost SOLD OUT already. The network says there are "less than a handful of spots left," and the 30-second spots went for an average price of $3.8 MILLION apiece. That's a record. Last year, NBC sold their 30-second Super Bowl blocks for an average of $3.5 million. Obviously, CBS expects the ad time to be sold out well before the game especially since less than 5% is still available. Two years ago, Fox sold out all the spots before Thanksgiving, and that could happen again this year!
DID HOPE SOLO GET BEAT UP BY HER SEAHAWK FIANCEE THE NIGHT BEFORE SHE WAS GETTING HITCHED?
Olympic soccer star HOPE SOLO was scheduled to get married yesterday to former Seattle Seahawks tight end JERRAMY STEVENS. And sources say they planned to go ahead with it. Even though Jerramy was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly beating her up. Here's what happened: Hope's brother Marcus called police to her house near Seattle at about 3:45 A.M. Monday, due to some kind of disturbance. Marcus had a black eye and bloody knees, while Hope had a, quote, "half-dollar-sized scrape on her elbow." She wouldn't say how she got it, but she and her brother told police they were having a party, and some people showed up uninvited and caused trouble. Marcus reportedly even used a TASER on one of them. Police found Stevens on the floor between a bed and a wall in an upstairs bedroom. There were signs of a struggle in the room, and Stevens had blood on his shirt and his cheek. Stevens told police he was SLEEPING, not HIDING. He did admit to arguing with Hope about where they were going to live after they got married. He also said he thought the blood on his face came from a kiss from Hope? Police took him into custody on the suspicion that he assaulted Hope. But at a hearing yesterday, Stevens was granted an unconditional release, due to insufficient
evidence. Hope attended the hearing, but didn't speak to reporters afterward.

HINDER’S NEW ALBUM WAS INSPIRED BY AUSTIN WINKLER’S ‘DARK DRUG BINGE’
HINDER singer AUSTIN WINKLER says their new album, "Welcome to the Freakshow" was inspired by, quote, "a really, really dark drug binge" he went through while recording the album. He adds, quote, "I think you can definitely hear the turmoil in my voice. As soon as we got the record done I went into treatment to get help, and it's interesting to go back and listen to it now. "Coming back, I have a whole new look on all of them and they mean something completely different to me now, too, so it's pretty cool. That's the beauty of music." Austin says you can hear it in the first single "Save Me" . . . quote, "I was kind of in the mind set of 'Get out of my face. I'm too far gone to be saved' kind of thing. I had a really nasty attitude in that song, but I had a blast singing and recording it."
TARGET WORKERS ARE STRAIGHT UP PISSED ABOUT THIS WHOLE ‘BLACK THURSDAY’ THING…
Thanksgiving isn’t the only thing that’s early this year. Target is one of several retail chains planning to start Black Friday shopping festivities earlier than ever, with stores opening at 9 pm on Thanksgiving Day. Many people aren’t happy about the decision, as evidenced by the numerous petitions that have been launched on Change.org in protest of the earlier opening time. One such petition, which urges the company to “save Thanksgiving for its employees, their families and consumers,” already has more than 200,000 signatures, while another, which encourages shoppers to boycott the so-called “Thanksgiving creep,” has 166,000. But Target, as well as retailers like Walmart and Toys R Us, are sticking to their guns, which could mean no pumpkin pie for their employees this year. Now that’s just wrong!

REMEMBER THAT GUY WHO TATOOED ROMNEY/RYAN 2012 ON HIS FACE? YEAH, WELL ABOUT THAT
Not sure who’s more disappointed that President Obama got reelected – Mitt Romney or the guy with the Mitt Romney tattoo on his face. Before the election, Eric Hartsburg of Indiana auctioned off ad space on his skin and was paid $15,000 to have the Romney campaign logo inked on the side of his head. “Totally disappointed, man,” the 30-year-old Republican told Politico. “I'm the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it's a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It's there for life.” Still, he says he has no regrets. He’s just glad to know he did what he could for the campaign. “I was trying to make politics fun,” he said. At least he’ll always have a permanent reminder of that.

BIG BEN COULD NEED SOME TIME TO HEAL…
Any chance the Pittsburgh Steelers had of competing for a division title and a spot in the playoffs could rest on how long Ben Roethlisberger will need to recover from the sprained shoulder and rib injury he suffered on Monday against the Chiefs. A source close to the team told ESPN the quarterback’s injuries could keep him out of the lineup for some time to come, though the source would not speculate on how long. Coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday Big Ben suffered a sternoclavicular disloacation, an injury that normally takes several weeks of rest to heal.
