LINDSAY LOHAN WAS ALLEGEDLY WASTED ON BOOZE & COKE WHEN SHE ATTACKED THE CHICK AT THE NYC NIGHTCLUB!
Lindsay Lohan was partying hard early Thursday morning before her arrest in a New York City nightclub and an eyewitness exclusively tells RadarOnline.com the Liz & Dick actress not only sucker-punched a female clubgoer, but she spit at her after drinking heavily and doing cocaine. "Lindsay was completely out of control. She was drinking way too much booze and was doing cocaine," the insider revealed. "The whole thing started when the girl in the club asked to take a picture with Lindsay. Lindsay said no and was really rude about it, so the girl just continued dancing with her friends." But the source says Lindsay wouldn't let it go and was so annoyed with the victim, Tiffany Eve Mitchell, that she purposely antagonized her and shoved Tiffany on the way to the bathroom. "Lindsay was just looking for trouble. She totally sucker-punched that girl in the face out of nowhere! Nobody saw it coming," the eyewitness told RadarOnline.com. "Lindsay went wild. She was kicking and screaming, cursing at the girl and then spit at her. The girl looked like she wanted to fight back at Lindsay, but was too startled by all the commotion to react."
AND THAT’S NOT ALL FOLKS! LILO WAS ALSO OFFICIALLY CHARGED WITH LYING TO POLICE YESTERDAY AS WELL
In addition to her nightclub brawl arrest in New York City, LINDSAY LOHAN was also charged in California yesterday with lying to police, for claiming her assistant was driving when she ran her rented Porsche into the back of a truck over the summer. Lindsay was charged with three crimes: Providing false information to a police officer, resisting a police officer, and reckless driving.

AAAAAND MARIAH CAREY’S BOOBS ALMOST FELL OUT!
Despite the nippy near-freezing weather, pop (out?) star Mariah Carey made many eyes pop out with her Christmas ornaments popping out of the very low-cut dress she wore on NBC’s Wednesday night broadcast of the annual tree-lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center in New York. In addition to sharing her, well, gifts, while topping the bill on the annual Christmas special, Carey’s 1994 holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas is You” tops the return of the annual Billboard Holiday Songs chart.

The good news is, "Dancing With the Stars" minx KELLY MONACO has a sex tape. The bad news is you'll probably NEVER SEE IT. The tape, if it actually exists, is almost 20 years old. Kelly made it when she was 19, with her boyfriend at the time. She's 36 now. And this guy has held onto it all this time. But he swears he's NEVER going to release it. He says, quote, "Making the video was a mutual decision, and we filmed it at my house. She's never mentioned it, and I still have it. "If I was a bad person, it would have already been released in the last couple of years, and I would have made a mint. But I'd never do that to her." Soooo, then why mention it dude??

JIMI HENDRIX’ BLACK STRAT SOLD FOR $440K!
A black Fender Stratocaster guitar played by Jimi Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 sold at a London auction on Wednesday for around $440,000. What makes this axe so unique is that it was the one the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was playing seconds before swapping it out for the much cheaper model he set on fire during his performance. The stunt is still one of the most iconic moments in rock, but what few knew at the time was that Hendrix had switched guitars before setting the cheaper model ablaze, knowing that the one sold at auction on Wednesday was worth way more money.
AC/DC SOLD A TON OF DOWNLOADS AFTER FINALLY CAVING IN TO iTUNES!
AC/DC FINALLY caved in to iTunes earlier this month after being one of the service's most notorious holdouts. And that decision seems to be working out for them, at least for now. Billboard.com says AC/DC sold 48,000 digital albums in their first week of availability . . . plus, 696,000 individual songs. 25 AC/DC albums hit iTunes on Monday, November 19th, including their new one "Live at River Plate".

GOOD NEWS! TWINKIES MAY LIVE ON…BAD NEWS? THE EXECS WHO RAN THE COMPANY INTO THE GROUND WANT THEIR $1.8MIL BONUS
We've got a couple updates on the fate of TWINKIES today. One of which will make you happy, and one of which will fill you with incomprehensible rage. Because it's Friday, we'll go with the good news first. The Good News: Twinkies are DEFINITELY Going To Live On. Yesterday, in bankruptcy court, Hostess announced there are 110 POTENTIAL BUYERS for its brands. That includes five major supermarket chains. In other words, unless some company wins the bidding war for Twinkies just to shut them down forever, they WILL be back. A 110-company bidding war means someone's going to pay a LOT to make and sell Twinkies. The Bad News: Executive Greed in Your Face. The top executives of Hostess clearly ran the company into the ground. BUT . . . in bankruptcy court, the 19 top executives still had the INSANE CAJONES to ask that any sale of the company include money to pay them their BONUSES for 2012. Those bonuses? About $1.8 MILLION. Yep: They're fighting for their $1.8 million bonuses as their company's bankruptcy wiped out 18,000 jobs.

DID YOU SEE THE NOW VIRAL PIC OF THE NYPD OFFICER GIVING A COLD HOMELESS DUDE HIS BOOTS?
A New York City police officer became an internet sensation after a photo of him helping a homeless man went viral. In the picture, which was snapped by a tourist two weeks ago and posted on Facebook, Officer Larry DePrimo is shown giving a barefoot homeless man a pair of winter boots and socks. Jennifer Foster, who took the picture, quoted DePrimo as saying to the man, “'I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let's put them on and take care of you.” She says he then helped put the socks and boots onto the homeless man’s feet. Foster says DePrimo didn’t know she was watching the exchange. The photo quickly racked up more than 300,000 likes after being posted to the NYPD’s Facebook page. DePrimo told the New York Times that when he saw the homeless man barefoot on a recent cold night, he found out his shoe size, then went into a Times Square Skechers store and purchased the boots and socks. He says that when he gave the homeless man the items, he “smiled from ear to ear. It was like you gave him a million dollars."
EVER WONDER WHAT THE HEAVIEST THING AMAZON.COM WILL SHIP FOR FREE IS?
The "Wall Street Journal" decided to put Amazon to the test and hunted down the HEAVIEST ITEM on Amazon, to see if they could get it shipped for free. The ended up settling on a massive fire safe that holds 48 guns, has 13 locks and weighs 1,509 pounds. Including all the packaging material, it weighs 1,672 pounds shipped. That's only a few hundred pounds less than a TON. The safe costs $3,486.57. And . . . Amazon DID ship it for free. Even though it cost about $700, Amazon ate the shipping fee. It's just part of Amazon's business model to ship free. Just last QUARTER, they lost $636 MILLION in free shipping about a 1% loss per item. But they've figured out how to MORE than make up for that in sales volume.

EVER WANTED TO SEND SOMEONE A FART FOR CHRISTMAS? WELL NOW YOU CAN!
Here’s a Christmas gift that’s guaranteed to be a stinker! A card company called Fart By Mail has launched a novelty service where you can mail a smelly package to an unsuspecting recipient! Each sealed, airtight package contains a rank burst of air and costs $8.99. It also comes complete with a personalized greeting card and makes a comedy fart sound when opened. When the envelope is unsealed, the victim immediately gets a whiff of something foul! Pranksters can even choose to send the package in stealth mode – which means the envelope will contain no hints as to what it holds inside. Sounds like a real gas!
SURVEY SAYS: WOMEN ADMIT MONEY IS THE BIGGEST TURN-ON?
In a new survey, women said the biggest turn-on in a man is . . . HIS MONEY. The usual things that make these lists, like sense of humor and personality, didn't even crack the top five. After money, the rest of the top five are: Status, looks, trust, and dynamism. Which I didn't even know was a word. Women also named the five jobs that are the biggest turn-ons and, just like the other list, it's a mix of power, money, and status. The top five are: Entrepreneur, CEO, actor, banker, and lawyer.

Here are the overused, annoying, and unnecessary clichés and jargon that DID make the list. To their credit, they got rid of old standbys like "get on the same page" and "synergy" and picked
more obnoxious modern buzzwords.

SOME DUDE IN MASSACHUSETTS MANAGED TO RUN HIMSELF OVER AND GET A TICKET FOR IT…TADA!
STIFF BREES: SAINTS QB TOSSES 5 PICKS; FALCONS TRIUMPH 23-13
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had another historic night on Thursday, only this time, as they say, he hopes to learn from history so as never to repeat it. Brees threw a career-most five interceptions and his NFL record streak of tossing touchdown passes in 54 consecutive games came to an end and New Orleans fell to the Atlanta Falcons 23-13. For the 11-1 Falcons it was a revenge match because the Saints were responsible for their lone loss of the season. With the win, Atlanta can clinch the NFC South if Tampa Bay loses to the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.
AILING ARMS: BIG BEN STILL IN PAIN; VICK FAILS CONCUSSION TEST
Two big-name NFL quarterbacks are still less than 100 percent ready to play for their respective teams this Sunday. Pittsburgh Steelers signal caller Ben Roethlisberger practices in a limited role on Thursday but team officials say he is still in considerable pain from a sprained right shoulder and a dislocated rib, injuries he suffered two weeks ago in a win over the Kansas City Chiefs. His participation in Sunday’s game at Baltimore is very much in doubt. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, Eagles QB Michael Vick was still not cleared to practice after failing a league-mandated concussion test, and therefore is unlikely to suit up against the Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday night.
UP FOR THE CHALLENGE: MARSHALL SAYS SOME PLAYERS POP VIAGRA FOR PEP
Bringing a whole new meaning to the “old” sports adage “getting up for the game,” Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall feels some players use Viagra before a game to, well, enhance their performance. When asked about the apparent sudden rise in the use of Adderall by several pro and amateur athletes, Marshall said, “I don’t know too much about Adderall. I know guys…try anything just to get that edge. I’ve heard of some crazy stories. I’ve heard of guys using like Viagra, seriously. Because the blood is supposedly thin, some crazy stuff.” In the case of NFL players - because of the average length of a game - they hope Viagra last four hours.
SHOVED TO THE SIDE: RONDO SUSPENDED 2 GAMES FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT FIGHT
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will cool his heels for the next two games after the league suspended him for his involvement in a shoving match with Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries on Wednesday. Rondo reacted following what he felt was a hard foul committed by Humphries on Kevin Garnett. Reacting to his suspension, Rondo said on Thursday, “I was sticking up for my teammates. I didn’t try to start a fight. I’m not trying to be a bully.”
NOT SITTING WELL: SPURS SEND SUPER TRIO HOME, FACE ‘SUBSTANTIAL SANCTIONS’
With his team playing its fourth game in five nights, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich on Thursday decided to sit veteran superstars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, sending them back to San Antonio, thereby skipping their nationally televised game against the ratings-friendly Miami Heat. The move to rest his three top players against one of the league’s top team’s didn’t sit well with NBA commissioner David Stern, who issued a statement before tipoff, saying, “This was an unacceptable decision by the San Antonio Spurs and substantial sanctions will be forthcoming.” The Spurs have a tough game against the league-leading Memphis Grizzlies tomorrow night. As for last night’s game, the Heat won 105-100.
MEDIATION ANXIETY: NHL, NHLPA STILL FAR APART DESPITE MEETING WITH MEDIATOR
Both sides in the NHL labor dispute continue to be at odds over key issues despite bringing in a federal mediator to referee their negotiations the past two days. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said, “After spending several hours with both sides over two days, the presiding mediators concluded the parties remained far apart, and that no progress toward a resolution could be made through further mediation at this point in time.” Not surprisingly, there are no further mediation sessions scheduled.
SKIPPING SCHOOL: EX-LSU D-BACK MATHIEU ENTERING NFL DRAFT
Saying, “I am sorry that I was not able to complete my journey at LSU,” former Tigers defensive back Tyrann Mathieu announced Thursday he will make himself available in the next NFL draft. Mathieu, nicknamed the “Honey Badger,” was a Heisman Trophy finalist two season ago, but was suspended for this entire season due to a substance abuse problem which he continues to battle. In a statement issued Thursday, Mathieu said, “I am committed to tackling my personal issues and will work to better myself every day as a man first and only then as a football player.”
LUCK OF THE IRISH: NOTRE DAME KNOCKS OFF NO. 8 KENTUCKY 64-50
It appears the luck – and skill – of the undefeated and top-ranked Notre Dame football team has rubbed off on their basketball brethren. On Thursday, the unranked Fighting Irish roundballers upset No. 8 Kentucky 64-50 to run their record to 7-1 and remain undefeated at South Bend. Elsewhere in college hoops, No. 7 Florida mauled Marquette 82-49, and No. 121 Gonzaga absolutely dismantled Lewis Clark State 104-57.
MMA’S RHONDA ROUSEY REVEALS SHE BECOMES A SEX MACHINE BEFORE FIGHTS!
RONDA ROUSEY is arguably the most dominant woman in mixed martial arts and she just became the UFC's first female competitor. And on sportscaster JIM ROME'S new Showtime series, she revealed that when she has a fight coming up, she becomes a BONING MACHINE. Apparently, sausage is a PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUG. Ronda said, quote, "For girls it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight, actually." Sadly for the rest of us . . . because Ronda is SERIOUSLY hot . . . she isn't just slinging it around for anybody she can find. She said, quote, "Not with, like, everybody . . . I don't, like, put out Craigslist ads or anything, but you know, if I got a steady I'm gonna be like, 'Yo, fight time's coming up.'" Check her out posing nude in the ESPN Body Issue!

SOURCES SAY ANGUS T. YOUNG WILL NOT QUIT TWO AND A HALF MEN!
Sources say ANGUS T. JONES will NOT quit "Two and a Half Men" and will honor his contract, which runs through the end of this season. However, there's a good chance he won't come back if the show continues beyond this season but nothing has been decided yet. TMZ claims other "sources" have told them that Angus wanted to quit after last season, but his reps and family convinced him it would be "stupid" to walk out on a contract that could earn him "as much as $15 million."
AND NOW SHEEN HAS INVITED HIM TO COME ON ANGER MANAGEMENT!
Charlie says, quote, "My former nephew is welcome at the Goodson 'Anger Management' home anytime." (--He's talking about Charlie Goodson . . . the character he plays on his new FX sitcom.) That's nice . . . but Angus might not be too pleased with Charlie right now. Yesterday, Charlie said Angus's religious comments sounded CULT-ISH. Charlie said, quote, "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it's radically clear to me that the show is cursed." But he added that Angus is a VICTIM. He said, quote, "Obviously, not having been there for some time, the Angus T. Jones that I knew and still love is not the same guy I saw on YouTube.

AW C’MON JARED LETO, YOU’RE KILLING ME HERE…
We've seen how much weight MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY lost to play an HIV-positive man in "The Dallas Buyer's Club". But JARED LETO may have lost even MORE for the flick. In addition to shaving his eyebrows. Leto talks about what it took to mess with his body to play his character who's a transsexual woman. He says, quote, "Your body goes through weird stages [when fasting]. "Sometimes it's hard to hold on to water. But for me, it's not about the most weight I can lose, it's more to represent the character. I'm focused on what it means to be a transsexual woman." Jared thinks he might benefit from starving himself . . . quote, "Historically, people have done it for pursuit of self, to achieve a meditative state, so I'm hoping for that, and not the other things. It's not necessarily a bad thing."

RUSH IS LEADING THE WAY IN VOTES FOR THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES!
Canadian progressive rock giants Rush currently enjoy a comfortable lead in the public poll for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so far earning just over 24 percent of all votes cast. Deep Purple follows with a tick over 17 percent and Heart is in third place with 12.5 percent. However the public poll is pretty much symbolic as it counts as just one voice among the 600 panelists of music industry folks who’ll decide who makes the class of 2013.
SEVENDUST WILL PUT OUT A NEW RECORD IN THE SPRING!
Georgia-bred rock quintet Sevendust is hoping to eclipse the success of their 2010 album Cold Day Memory with Black Out the Sun, their ninth studio offering, due out March 26.

WINNING POWERBALL TICKETS WERE SOLD IN ARIZONA & MISSOURI…BUT DON’T THROW AWAY THAT TICKET JUST YET!
So you didn't win the Powerball last night. If you did, you'd be on a private jet to Bora Bora right now not sitting in traffic, listening to me, and debating whether to stop at McDonald’s for a Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscquit. Winning tickets for the record $580 million jackpot were bought in Arizona and Missouri. The winning numbers were 5, 23, 16, 22, 29 . . . and the Powerball was 6. But for the rest of us, the dream may not be TOTALLY over. Make sure to check your ticket. About 70 people will win $1 MILLION second-place prizes for matching all five numbers but not the Powerball. And experts estimate about 2% of the people who win $1 million in the Powerball tonight will NEVER realize it and NEVER come forward. There are also prizes like $10,000 for matching four numbers and the Powerball, or $100 for getting four numbers. Those are all worthwhile too. Believe it or not, in just the past year, there's been about $800 MILLION in unclaimed lottery prizes around the country. Don't be part of THAT statistic!

SOMEBODY NAMED THEIR KID HASHTAG…REALLY?
We hope this kind of thing doesn’t start trending! Some social media savvy parents named their newborn daughter Hashtag. As in, a Twitter hashtag. As in, that kid is going to be scarred for life. Incidentally, it was a Facebook posting – not a tweet – that alerted the world to baby Hashtag Jameson. The girl was born Saturday night and as her proud parent wrote, “She weys eight pounds and I luv her so much!!!!!!” She has a terrible name and parents who can’t spell. Poor baby Hashtag.

STARBUCKS JUST UNVEILED A $7 CUP OF COFFEE…HOW HIGH WILL IT GO??
We've all proven to Starbucks that we'll spend $4 on a cup of coffee. So it's only natural for them to keep pushing to see how high we'll go. Is there a limit? This could test it. Starbucks just released their most expensive cup of coffee yet. It's called the Costa Rican Finca Palmilera, and it's made from a rare coffee bean called Geisha. They're selling it for $6 for a Tall . . . and $7 for a Grande. Seven bucks! Before this, their most expensive coffee was $4.50. For now, they're only selling this at some stores in Oregon and Washington but they're planning to take it nationwide early next year.

PROTIP: IF YOU ARE GONNA THREATEN SOMEONE WITH A CHAINSAW, MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO START IT FLORIDA
If you’re going to threaten someone with a chainsaw, at least make sure you know how to start it! Stephen Bates, 28, was arrested Saturday in Stuart, Florida after wielding the chainsaw at his neighbor. Bates was apparently angry that the neighbor had purchased his brother’s truck. First, he threatened to cut his neighbor with a knife, then he came out with the chainsaw and said, “I am going to kill you.” But after unsuccessful attempts to start the chainsaw, he allegedly threw it against the side of the neighbor’s house. What a tool.

RID of it altogether.

SOME DOUCHE USED SEXY PICS OF HIS 20 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER TO SELL HIS DATSUN ON EBAY!
Earlier this month, Kim Ridley of Eugene, Oregon wanted to sell his 1977 Datsun on eBay. And to give his listing a little extra juice, he figured he'd post SEXY PHOTOS of a SKANKY WOMAN posing with his car. And the skanky woman he recruited for the photos was . . . HIS OWN DAUGHTER. He did a photo shoot featuring his car and his 20-year-old daughter Lexxa, that's Lexxa with two x's, although once she switches to porno she'll probably add a third one. In the photos, Lexxa is wearing a see-through yellow tank top that shows her bra, black underwear, and knee-high black boots. In some of them she's wearing ripped jeans, and in most of them she's showing off her many tattoos. The photos include her leaning over the hood to show her cleavage, and a shot of the car from between her legs. Kim says, quote, "If I felt bad about it, I wouldn't do it." His Datsun ended up getting five bids and sold for $7,500.

JUICY DETAILS: STEROID-SHROUDED BONDS, SOSA, CLEMENS ON HALL BALLOT
Let the conversation begin. Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens, three huge names associated with the steroid era in major league baseball, are on the baseball Hall of Fame ballot for the first time. Bonds heads the list of controversial players eligible to be inducted into the pantheon of professional baseball because he still holds the record for career home runs with 762 and earned a record seven MVP trophies. Sosa slammed 609 home runs and Clemens won a record seven Cy Young awards. Other first-time eligibles include Mike Piazza, Craig Biggio and Curt Schilling.
NBA ROUNDUP: CELTICS LOST THE WAR AGAINST THE NETS AS THE THUNDER ROLLS
Last night’s clash between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics featured an undercard pitting Celtics guard Rajon Rondo and Nets forward Kris Humphries getting into a shoving match that resulted in the two, plus Nets forward Gerald Wallace, being ejected. In the end, the Brooklyn beat up Boston 95-83 to run their record to 10-4. And speaking of beating people up, the Detroit Pistons, once known as the Motor City Bad Boys, are now known for being just a bad basketball team, but on Wednesday they flexed their muscles and absolutely pummeled the Phoenix Suns 117-77. Brandon Knight and Charlie Villanueva scored 19 apiece to lead the Detroit attack. On Wednesday, last year’s NBA Sixth Man of the Year got a taste of what other teams had to deal with when they faced the Oklahoma City Thunder starting five. James Harden and his Houston Rockets had no answer for Kevin Durant, who finished with 37 points and the Thunder rolled past the Rockets 120-98. In his return to OKC, Harden managed to make just 3 of his 16 shots and finished with 17 points. In other NBA action, the 13-3 San Antonio Spurs ousted the Orlando Magic 110-89; the 11-2 Memphis Grizzlies easily defeated the Toronto Raptors 103-82; the Atlanta Hawks stretched their winning streak to six after dumping the Charlotte Bobcats 94-91; and the Washington Wizards finally picked up their first win of the season, edging the Portland Trail Blazers 84-82 to move to 1-12.

NCAA HOOPS: #2 DUKE DOWNS #4 OHIO STATE 73-68!
Wednesday night’s duel in Durham between No. 2 Duke and No. 4 Ohio State proved both teams are worthy of the early-season rankings. But at the end of the night the only numbers that counted were 73 and 68, the Blue Devils scoring the former and the Buckeyes the latter. In more top 25 action, No. 9 Arizona destroyed their in-state opponent Northern Arizona 93-50; No. 11 Creighton was upset by Boise State 83-70; No. 13 Michigan State was upended by Miami 67-59; No. 22 Illinois topped Georgia Tech 75-62; No. 24 UNLV pasted UC Irvine 85-57; and No. 25 New Mexico crushed Mercer 76-58.

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh announced Wednesday Colin Kaepernick will make his third straight start Sunday when the Niners travel to St. Louis to meet the Rams.

Free-agent outfielder B.J. Upton has up and left the Tampa Bay Rays, agreeing to a five-year, $75.25 million deal with the Atlanta Braves, league sources say. The deal is supposed to be made official later today, once Upton passes his physical. So what does $75.25 million buy you these days? The 28-year old center fielder batted .246 with 28 homers and 78 RBIs and 31 stolen bases.
YOU KNEW THIS WAS COMING: ANGUS T. JONES IS BACKPEDDLING AFTER CALLING TAAHM “FILTH”
19-year-old ANGUS T. JONES has released a statement in the wake of his super religious, anti-"Two and a Half Men" rant and he's APOLOGIZING. Sort of. He says he'd like everyone connected with the show to know that he's sorry he called it THE DEVIL'S FILTH and told everyone NOT to watch it. But . . . he isn't exactly taking it back. He says, quote, "While I cannot address everything that's been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. "Without qualification, I am grateful to, and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on 'Two and Half Men' with whom I have worked and over the past 10 years, who have become an extension of my family. "Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me. "And the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them. "I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that."
BRAD PITT SAYS HE’S GOING TO MARRY ANGELINA “SOON”
Could it be true? Could Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally be tying the knot? At the premiere of Pitt’s new film, Killing Them Softly, Monday night, the actor hinted that a wedding might be in the near future. "I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come," he said. He then added, "It's soon. I got a good feeling about it." The 48-year-old has been with Jolie, 37, for seven years and they have six children together - Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. They got engaged this past spring.

LISA ROBIN KELLY FROM THAT 70’S SHOW GOT ARRESTED AGAIN…
LISA ROBIN KELLY who played TOPHER GRACE'S hot sister on "That '70s Show" was arrested Monday night after she and her husband got into a fight at their North Carolina home. Lisa's husband was arrested, too. This marks Lisa's THIRD arrest since 2010, and her second arrest for domestic violence this year. Police say no drugs or alcohol were involved this time, but in the past, Lisa has copped to a drinking problem, which pretty much led to the end of her gig on "That '70s Show". She was arrested for DUI in 2010. And this past March, she was arrested for beating up a boyfriend, although the charges were eventually dropped. We don't know if that was the same guy she got in the fight with last night.

We could go out and buy lottery tickets, vote, play putt-putt golf. All the things that are legal at the age of 18.”

HERE ARE 5 TIPS TO WIN THE $425 POWERBALL TONIGHT!
Tonight is the record Powerball drawing. And your odds of winning are one in 175 million. Those aren't very good. Fortunately, we've got a little advice here that might increase those odds just a little bit. Here are five expert tips for winning tonight's Powerball. Of course, we can't GUARANTEE that using these will make you win . . . but they might:
#1.) Don't bother letting the machine pick random numbers. Customized numbers have thesame chance of winning. And those numbers are LUCKY to you, right?
#2.) But don't pick popular lucky numbers like seven or numbers under 31, because those couldbe birthdays. More people will have those numbers and could end up splitting the jackpot with you. You're hoping you have obscure numbers, and they hit.
#3.) The only way to increase your real odds? Buying more tickets.
#4.) Don't pick the same number for the Powerball every time.
#5.) And finally, make sure if you're in a lottery pool, you send photo proof of the tickets you bought for the group and ones you bought for yourself. You don't need the inevitable lawsuit if that line is blurred.
BUYING A POWERBALL TICKET TODAY? WELL GOOD LUCK, BUT HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER…

YOU CAN SAVE $150 THIS HOLIDAY SEASON…IF YOU REGIFT!
According to a new survey, 92% of Americans now say it's totally acceptable to regift presents. 87% of us have gotten a gift we THINK was re-gifted. And 62% of us plan on re-gifting something to someone this year. There's a good reason for that. The average person who re-gifts says they'll save about $150 on presents, just by passing along the things they got that they don't want. And women are three times more likely to re-gift something than men.

DID YOU SEE THE CRAZY LADY TALKING ABOUT THE VACCUUM CLEANER SALESMAN SEEING HER BOOBS ON THE NEWS?
Raw footage from an interview with a woman in Portland, Oregon is blowing up online because for no apparent reason, she revealed to the local news that her vacuum cleaner salesman has seen her NAKED. Apparently someone had crashed their car into a building, and the woman had witnessed it. And while she was talking about businesses nearby, she said, quote, "I know the vacuum cleaner man. He's seen my [breasts]." (She actually said the T-word that rhymes with "Fitz.") She added, quote, "I know that's not going on TV, but it's true . . . I'm not here to lie to you." Then at the end of the interview, the reporter asked if she had anything else to add, and the woman offered to flash the CAMERA CREW.
A WOMAN DOWN IN MANATEE COUNTY BEAT HER MAN UP FOR NOT GETTING HER OFF!
On Monday night, 24-year-old Raquel Gonzalez of Manatee County, Florida was having sex with her boyfriend, 30-year-old Esric Davis. According to the police report, things took a bad turn when, quote, "Esric climaxed and Raquel did not." She started HITTING him and SCRATCHING him until he could get away. He called the cops, and Raquel was arrested for felony domestic battery. The police report says alcohol was a factor . . . although based on what we know about alcohol and sexual performance, we're guessing that means Raquel was drunk and Esric was sober.
EVER WONDER WHAT THE BEST TIME OF DAY IS TO ASK FOR RAISE? OR TAKE A NAP? WONDER NO MORE
"Real Simple" magazine just released a list of the best times of the day to do nine different things. We've seen other lists like this before even ones that have some contradictory suggestions but since this one is the newest, here you go. Get a haircut at 8:00 A.M. You want to be the first appointment of the day. That's when your barber or stylist is fresh, and by definition, can't be backed up with other appointments that ran long.Return things to stores at 10:00 A.M. When stores open, they have the best ratio of staff to customers. It's the best time to get service with the fewest other people in the store getting in the way. Take a flight between 11:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. That's when there are the fewest weather delays, and it helps you avoid the airport rush. Take a nap between 1:00 P.M. and 2:30 P.M. That's the time that works best with your body's natural rhythms. And the nap should last 15 to 20 minutes. Once you pass 30 minutes you'll feel even groggier when you wake up. Clean the house at 4:00 P.M. That's when your coordination is at its peak and your mood is the best.Ask for a raise at 5:00 P.M. You want to talk to your boss when they're the least rushed and least likely to get distracted, and that's at the end of the day.Do cardio between 5:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. In the early evening, your lungs use oxygen efficiently, you're more coordinated, and your muscles are warmed up. Exercise is also an excellent stress reliever from the day. Walk the dog between 8:00 P.M. and 9:00 P.M. Dogs view walks as their FUN. Walking your dog at night lets him enjoy the smells and sounds he misses during the day. Read something at 10:00 P.M. With the way your brain is organized, that's when you're most likely to retain information.

THE EAGLES HAVE CUT DEFENSIVE END BABIN, AND PLACED DESEAN
The dismantling of the 3-8 Philadelphia Eagles could have begun on Tuesday with the surprise release of defensive end Jason Babin, a guy who just last season piled up a career-best 18 sacks. Upon hearing of his release, the 32-year old pass rusher said, “In the game of football, you can never be too sure of anything.” In more Eagles news – all bad, the team placed star wide receiver DeSean Jackson on season-ending injured reserve after he suffered fractured ribs in Monday night’s loss to the Panthers.
THE YANKEES RE-SIGNED PETTITTE…COULD RIVERA RETURN TOO?
The New York Yankees just secured the services of one of their best-known arms, while another could be back in pinstripes again next year as well. On Tuesday, the Yanks signed lefty Andy Pettitte to a one-year contract worth $11 million, while the team expressed optimism that future Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera could be the next pitcher to put pen to paper and sign on the dotted line. The 43-year old Rivera missed most of last season with a knee injury, but is expected to make just about as much as Pettitte will be pulling down.
MARVIN MILLER, THE FATHER OF FREE AGENCY, DIED AT 95 :(
Marvin Miller, the man who in 1966 changed professional sports forever when he began his 16-run as executive director of the Major League Players Association, died Tuesday of liver cancer at his home in New York. He was 95. Miller was responsible for shifting the economics of professional sports forever when in 1975 he won free agency for MLB players. Current MLB union chief Michael Weiner said, “All players – past, present and future – owe a debt of gratitude to Marvin, and his influence transcends baseball.”

There's a new list out of the pro sports teams who've had the biggest attendance drop in the past decade, and one thing is clear: Fair weather fans make or break your attendance. Because most of these teams have had AWFUL decades. The Seattle Mariners have lost the most fans, followed by the Cleveland Indians.
