Most Streamed Shows

Stranger Things was the most-viewed U.S. TV show in 2022, according to Nielsen.  It topped the list with 52 billion minutes streamed in 2022.  That was almost as much as the record of 57.1 billion minutes The Office set in 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Top 3 overall most streamed programs in 2022 were Stranger Things, NCIS, acquired from CBS, and Cocomelon, the popular children’s show that originated on YouTube.  When it comes to original programming, Netflix is dominant, with the Top 10 shows streamed, including OzarkCobra Kai, the reality series Love is Blind and their prestigious juggernaut, The Crown. Netflix’s new hit show, Wednesday, based on the character from The Addams Family, broke into the Top 10 in 2022 in a big way by coming in at 18.6 billion minutes viewed on just eight episodes. Prime Video’s The Boys is the first original offering coming from the streamer at #11 with 10.6 billion minutes viewed on 24 episodes.  Disney+ has the edge in movie streaming with Encanto, which has songs written by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, coming in at #1 with 27.4 billion views. That’s more than double Disney’s own Turning Red at #2 with over just over 11 billion views. Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2, Moana and Frozen are all in the Top 10. Disney has ten of the Top 15 streaming movies overall, but Netflix’ Sing 2 and The Adam Project made the Top 5.

Robert Redford Doubled Up For Babs

Robert Redford allegedly wore “two athletic supporters” to film his love scene with Barbra Streisand for their 1973 film “The Way We Were.”  The claim was made by author Robert Hofler in his book published on Jan. 24 titled “The Way They Were: How Epic Battles and Bruised Egos Brought a Classic Hollywood Love Story to the Screen.”  The book, timed to the 50th anniversary of the film’s release, explores how the instant classic was “a nightmare to make, with a difficult cast, a jumbled plot about mismatched partners, countless delays and rewrites, on-set tensions between everyone involved, difficulties at every step of the production, the skyrocketing demands of Ms. Streisand, a leading man who happily ditched premieres on both coasts and mixed critical reviews.”  Hofler claimed that Redford was reluctant to work alongside Streisand, and when it was time to get in bed with Streisand, he did not take any chances. He allegedly doubled up on the jock straps “to protect himself in more ways than one” while Streisand “chose to don a bikini.”  “Redford was a happily married family man with four children when he signed to do ‘The Way We Were,’” Hofler explained in his book.  The intimate scene was supposed to be a simple one to film in a closed set. However, Britton said, “there were a lot of takes.” At one point, Redford looked at director Sydney Pollack, implying he had enough. Redford would later joke to a Newsweek reporter that the only thing he wore on set for the scene was “Aramis,” the Estée Lauder fragrance for men.  “Barbra Streisand was a star who reportedly had affairs with many of her leading men,” claimed an unnamed member from the film set.  During their second love scene, Redford allegedly refused to say the line, “It will be better this time,” because he felt people would assume he was not a good lover.
*********A lot of her leading men wound up missing their “units!!!”
*******He wanted to make sure he didn’t “accidentally” get her pregnant!!
*******This was the first movie in history where the leading man was more beautiful than his lady!!! 

Pamela Anderson Walked In On Jack Nicholson

Pamela Anderson allegedly once saw Jack Nicholson having a threesome at the Playboy Mansion.  “Mr. Nicholson had two beautiful women with him,” She claims in her upcoming memoir, “Love, Pamela,” according to an excerpt released by Variety Thursday.  She continues, “They were all giggling and kissing up against the wall, sliding all over each other.”  She recalls trying not to look, but that she “couldn’t help” herself.  “I walked by to use the mirror, bending over the sink to fix my lip gloss. Trying not to look, but I couldn’t help myself and caught his eye in the reflection,” she writes.  And the actress even says that she found herself being slightly involved in his threesome.  “I guess that got him to the finish line because he made a funny noise, smiled and said, ‘Thanks, dear,’” she claims.
********Was this AFTER Tim Allen flashed her?? This girl got around!!!
*******Of course, she didn’t join in!! Right??
*****Why do young actresses go to the Playboy Mansion?? It ain’t for the food!!

Goop’s Valentines Gifts

Gwyneth Paltrow released Valentine’s Day goodies for lovers looking to create a buzz in the bedroom. The gift guide includes nearly fifty vibrators, sea salt and caramel water-based lube and a 24-karat gold razor for a whopping $425.  Goop found ways to disguise kinky sex toys as luxury items. The gift guide includes a gold necklace that’s actually a vibrator — but it isn’t obvious to the naked eye.  “It’s a necklace and a vibrator. It’s made of stainless steel, finished in twenty-four-karat gold, and completely waterproof,” the necklace description reads. The discreet sex toy costs $149.  Paltrow’s wide selection of vibrators will have customers reaching new climaxes, whether they’re using the Smile Makers Poet Vibrator for $129 or Heartthrob Vibrator for $200.  One of the best-selling items is the $75 “This Smells Like My Vagina Candle,” released in 2020.
*******You can probably figure out where THAT’S been!!!

King Charles Is Booting Out Prince Andrew

King Charles III has informed the Duke of York he can no longer use his suite of rooms at Buckingham Palace.  While the palace undergoes its renovation, Prince Andrew’s belongings have reportedly been moved out and will not be returned again.  According to The Sun, he was told there is “no place” for him at the palace and he will have to move elsewhere if he wishes to remain in London.  The newspaper quoted a source as saying: “The King has made it clear that Buckingham Palace is no place for Prince Andrew.  “First his office closed last year and now his sleeping quarters. Andrew loved having a suite at Buckingham Palace where he was not only set up for marital life with Sarah Ferguson but used it as a bachelor’s pad after his divorce.”  The news comes after Andrew is said to be plotting a legal bid to overturn his settlement with Virginia Giuffre, who accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was underage.
*********Andrew has done a lot of work with teenage mothers.. you know, helping them get their start!!
*******They were going to send him to the stables, but that’s where Camilla sleeps!!

Eagle Steals Golf Ball

A bateleur eagle finds a rather strange object when hunting and decides to have a little fun with it.  Lodge manager and photographic guide Rihann Van Wyk, 41, from Mvuradona Safari Lodge was out on a game drive in the Kruger National Park in South Africa when he came across the playful scene.  He shared the story with  “While on a game drive in the Kruger National Park, I was driving along the S108 dirt road, searching for the resident leopards that call this part of the park home. Often, when you are searching for something, you will never find it. As I thought that to myself, a large raptor about to land caught my eye.  “This section was mainly grassland with some apple leaf trees and some shrubs. As soon as the raptor landed, I saw it was a bateleur eagle. I stopped the vehicle some distance away and waited to see what was going to happen, as I knew there must be something that got its attention. The next moment it picked up an ‘egg’ and tried to swallow it.”  Bateleur eagles have diets that consist of a large variety of different items. They will consume rodents, small reptiles, small antelope and carrion. Bateleur eagles will consume eggs on very rare occasions.
*****This is a sign!! Eagles will go to the Super Bowl!! (Thinking like a Philly Phan)
******Somewhere in South Africa, a golfer is STILL looking for his ball!!

Bear Selfies Caught On Camera

A trail camera set up to capture images of wildlife in Colorado was hijacked by a bear that used the camera to pose for about 400 “selfies.”  Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks said a wildlife camera set up in a wooded area in November snapped 580 photos in a single night, and rangers reviewing the photos found about 400 of them were “bear selfies” of a single bruin that came in for a close-up.  “Felt cute, might delete later,” Colorado Parks and Wildlife quipped in sharing the photos on Twitter.  The camera is one of nine set up around the city by Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks to help officials and researchers learn more about the area’s diverse wildlife.  See the pics HERE.
*********First they eat our food, then they try to drive our cars, now they’re taking SELFIES?? Where does it stop??
