The cast of beloved ’90s film Father of the Bride will reunite during a virtual event this week. Netflix said Tuesday that it will host a reunion on its YouTube and Facebook accounts Friday at 6 p.m. EDT to raise funds for the nonprofit World Central Kitchen. The streaming service shared a teaser for the special from the perspective of Steve Martin’s character, George Banks. George gets an e-mail from his daughter, Annie Banks-Mackenzie (Kimberly Williams), featuring photos from her wedding, and an invite to a video call from his son, Matty Banks (Kieran Culkin). “25 years later, the Banks family returns for a very special event to benefit World Central Kitchen,” text in the video reads.
********We’ll check in just to see whether anyone in the family got the COVID!!
New York City’s Times Square will look very different on New Year’s Eve this year. On any given year, the so-called “Crossroads of the World” is packed to the gills with people excited to ring in the new year as broadcasts play host to musical entertainment and the like. But with 2020 unlike any given year due to the coronavirus — among other things — this year’s event will reflect that. In a statement provided to Fox News by the event’s organizers, Times Square Alliance President Tim Tompkins said the event will go virtual and will not host the usual raucous crowd of revelers. The event will, however, include “scaled-back and socially distanced live elements still to be determined, and an extremely limited group of in-person honorees, socially distanced, who will reflect the themes, challenges and inspirations of 2020.” “One thing that will never change is the ticking of time and the arrival of a New Year at midnight on December 31st,” said Tompkins. “But this year there will be significantly new and enhanced virtual, visual and digital offerings to complement whatever limited live entertainment or experiences – still in development – will take place in Times Square.” He reiterated that any live events that take place will be available virtually. “Because more than ever in these divided and fear-filled times, the world desperately needs to come together symbolically and virtually to celebrate the people and things we love and to look forward with a sense of renewal and new beginnings,” Tompkins said.
********Instead of the ball, they’ll be dropping Fauci at midnight!!
*****Seacrest will be hosting “New Year’s Breathing Eve!!”
*******Just to be safe, at midnight everyone will kiss themselves!!!
******So… as soon as it’s 2021, this will all be over, right??????
Celebrity baker and Carlo’s Bake Shop owner, Buddy Valastro, is recovering after a terrible bowling accident. The Food Network star’s hand was impaled after getting it stuck in the bowling pinsetter, a representative for his company confirmed. He underwent surgery earlier this week. A malfunction with a pinsetter, which has been an easy fix in the past, caused Valastro’s hand to become lodged and compressed inside the machine, his spokesperson said. “Unable to remove his hand, he can see a 1 1/2 inch metal rod slowly and repeatedly impale his hand three times between his ring finger and middle finger,” the spokesperson said. More than five minutes elapsed and he was still unable to remove his hand. His son cut him free from the machine using a reciprocating saw, which he used to cut through the metal rod, the spokesperson said. Valastro was rushed to Morristown Memorial in New Jersey for emergency surgery on Sunday to remove the impaled rod and stabilize the wound, according to the spokesperson.
*******Holy crap!! That sounds just wonderful!!!
*****You’ve gotta hand it to him!!
******Tell us again: why was a cake baker fixing a pinsetting machine???
Meghan Markle made a surprise virtual appearance during the Season 15 finale of “America’s Got Talent,” showing her support for finalist Archie Williams, who spent many years behind bars for a crime he did not commit. “Hi Archie, I just wanted to let you know that we’ve been so moved by your story, and we have been cheering you on every week, and it’s not just because we’re partial to the name,” Meghan said in her video, cheekily referencing her 1-year-old son Archie, whom she shares with husband Prince Harry. “A very special message to you, that I’ll probably be saying all of my life, but on this night it is specifically for you, Archie, we are proud of you, and we are rooting for you, and we can’t wait to see what you do. We’re in your corner. Have a good night,” she continued. Williams, a 59-year-old singer from Louisiana, had been incarcerated for 37 years for a crime he did not commit. Williams said he turned to music during “dark times.” The Innocence Project took on Williams’ case, and in March 2019, he was released from prison.
*******She’s trying to maintain a low profile.. but people just want to see her sooooo much!!
********When a convict “starts singing,” it usually means something else!!!

The 45-year-old hunk’s single-handedly taking care of both his elderly mother, Gloria Campano, and his toddler daughter, Lea, 3! “I’m with my daughter and my mother and my two dogs, and we have not left the house,” insists the A-list actor turned full-time caretaker. “My mother is going to be 80, and she has a colostomy bag, so I can’t let anybody in the house,” explains the “A Star Is Born” leading man. “And I can’t leave the house, because if she gets it, it’s over,” he says, referring to the COVID-19.

Kacey & Ruston: Calling Off Divorce!-(Star)
Kacey Musgraves and Ruston Kelly are giving their relationship another shot. In July, the “High Horse” singer and the songwriter, both 32, announced they were splitting after nearly three years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. A point of contention? Kacey’s career. “She was on the road all the time,” a friend explains. “Ruston felt completely left out.” Now, the pal reveals the two have had time to “think about where they went wrong” and are attending counseling to address their issues. Both seem committed to making things right, even continuing to speak highly of each other on social media during their brief separation. Adds the insider: “Time’s proven to be a great healer.”
Angie’s Revenge Bombshell: Secret Recordings of Brad-(Life & Style)
Why is Angelina Jolie digging in her heels now, four years after she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt? Angie, 45, wants revenge more than ever. This August, Brad, 56, took new gal pal Nicole Poturalski, 27, to Chateau Miraval six years to the day after he and Angelina were married at the French estate. “Prolonging the proceedings is just the beginning,” notes the insider. “Angie has secret tapes of Brad, and she’s angry enough to go public with them.” The tapes, which consist of security footage and “possibly Angie’s own cellphone recordings,” were made before Brad gave up drinking four years ago, the insider says. And they could be used as a salvo in their ongoing custody war over their kids. “Brad’s pals are afraid Angie may have captured him drunk or yelling at the kids,” the insider shares. “He’d better watch his back.”
One Last Thing: Ziggy Marley-(People)
The Grammy winner and dad of seven, 51, is releasing a new kids’ album, More Family Time.
Last time I danced-
A couple of days ago in the kitchen. My kids laugh at me. It has to look weird but I don’t care what anybody thinks. I’m just trying to express whatever’s inside of me.
Last moment of nostalgia-
Last week I was cooking some plantain porridge, the way we make it in Jamaica. It was a sunny day, and the windows were open, and it kind of took me back. Like, this is the vibe I remember.
Last time I was moved to tears-
Probably when my mother was sick a few years ago. She’s what I’m connected to the most. It was real tough. She means everything to me.
Katie Steals Another Woman’s Fiance!-(In Touch)
They didn’t bother hiding. Katie Holmes threw her arms around her new boyfriend, Emilio Vitolo Jr., and kissed him passionately outside his father Emilio Vitolo Sr.’s famed NYC restaurant, Emilio’s Ballato, on Sept. 8. The PDA came just two days after Katie was spotted making out with the aspiring actor, 33, while sitting on his lap at a restaurant. But her happiness has come at another woman’s expense: Emilio’s now-ex-fiancee. He has been engaged to 24-year-old designer Rachel Emmons for more than a year, and they still lived together, says a source, when he began seeing Katie, 41. “Rachel was completely blindsided-she received a coldhearted breakup text from Emilio as soon as he knew the photos with Katie were going public.” Even worse, adds the source, “Rachel knows Katie should have been aware that Emilio was engaged.”
Chicken Poop Fire
Firefighters in Britain said crews from three towns spent three hours extinguishing the flames from a blaze that started with a 22-ton pile of chicken manure. The Suffolk Fire & Rescue Service said crews from Leiston, Eye and Stowmarket responded to the property near Mendlesham when the foul-smelling fowl droppings erupted in flames. Officials said it took about three hours to extinguish the fire. No injuries were reported. Experts said the chemicals in poultry manure can cause spontaneous combustion when a pile becomes too large to allow heat to escape.
*******What a “chickensh*t assignment!!!”
*******We knew the chickens would get their revenge someday!!
*******Fire fighting is a real crap game!!!!
Tooth Fairy Gets Message In A Bottle
A Tennessee boy who addressed a message in a bottle to the tooth fairy after losing his tooth at a South Carolina beach received a reply in the mail from a generous stranger, his mother said. Ashley Hamrick of Knox County said her young son, Lucas, was visiting Myrtle Beach with his family in June when he lost his tooth while boogie boarding and it disappeared into the surf. Hamrick helped Lucas write a letter to the tooth fairy explaining the incident and the note was put inside a bottle and thrown into the ocean.
The mother said she was surprised when a package showed up at the family’s home months later bearing a Dayton, Ohio, postmark. The package contained a letter addressed to Lucas and signed by “The Tooth Fairy.” “I hope you had a fun vacation at the beach! I’m so sorry that you lost your tooth in the surf. I got your message in the bottle, so I wasn’t worried about not finding it right away,” the letter reads. “Good news! Mermaids found your tooth and gave it to me! The mermaid wanted you to have this shark tooth to remember your vacation. Brush your teeth 2 times every day to keep them pretty for me. Flossing is good too. Stay safe,” the anonymous person wrote.
********A shark’s tooth??? Where’s my money?????
********How much does the Tooth Fairy pay now?????
Grandma Bowls A 300
A 96-year-old Pennsylvania has become the first person at her local bowling alley to roll a “no tap 300,” meaning she knocked down at least nine pins in each frame. Sara Lyons, who will be 97 on Nov. 30, was bowling at Kennedy Lanes in McKees Rocks when she finished her game with a score of 300 — becoming the first person to do so at the alley. “I had all strikes in a row. Not an open frame at all,” Lyons told KDKA-TV. Lyons said she has been bowling since age 27, and this marked her first 300 score. “That’s hard,” she said. “It’s hard for a woman to do that, especially seniors.” Lyons said focusing on her family keeps her healthy and alert.
*********All you 30-year-old guys can start weeping right now!!
*******It’s just like golf: if you can roll or hit it straight, you’re gonna win!!!!
********She also killed a six pack before the game!!
Pet Bird Found Off Shore
Animal rescuers in Scotland said they are trying to find the owner of an adventurous cockatiel that joined some surprised fishermen on a boat about 10 miles from shore. The Scottish SPCA said the fishermen told rescuers they were about 10 miles from shore, near Troon, Ayrshire, when the bird landed on their boat. The cockatiel was recovered by the SPCA and taken to the Ayrshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Center, where it was found to be in good health. “This was a very unusual rescue, I’ve never been contacted about a bird finding its way so far out at sea,” Animal Rescue Officer Sheena MacTaggart said. “Thank goodness the boat was there so the bird found somewhere to rest.” “He had no obvious injuries, and was given some water and food before being taken to our center in Ayrshire. We have named him HeiHei after the bird in the film Moana who stows away on her boat. We thought it was very fitting,” MacTaggart said.
*********He flew out to sea??? What a bird brain!!
*******He’s a cockatiel… his wife’s a cockatease!!!
