Hasselhoff Auctioning Off The KITT Car

David Hasselhoff is auctioning off the AI-enhanced Knight Industries Two Thousand car — a k a “K.I.T.T.” — from his 1980s TV show “Knight Rider” for an estimated $300,000.  The 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is described as a “FULLY FUNCTIONAL K.I.T.T. CAR WITH FULL CONVERSION CAR LOCATED IN U.K.,” according to the automobile’s listing on  Unfortunately, the prop K.I.T.T. doesn’t boast any of the capabilities of its sentient on-screen counterpart, which could talk, drive itself and even inexplicably jump when the Hoff’s character activated a “turbo boost” function.  However, the automotive assistant sports a dashboard that lights up just like in “Knight Rider.”  In addition, Hasselhoff, 68, will personally deliver the car to the new owner if they pay 25% above the asking price, per the site. (Winners who pay less will be responsible for the delivery expense.)
********We’ve got a Prius that has more capability, so… we’ll pass!!

Christie Brinkley Got A New Hip

Christie Brinkley has had her hip replaced 26 years after being injured in a helicopter crash.  She said Tuesday on Instagram that she’s recovering after undergoing hip replacement surgery in November.  Brinkley shared photos of herself snorkeling with Jack Paris, her 25-year-old son with her husband, Richard Taubman. The picture shows Brinkley with a bandage on her hip.  “New Year, New Hip! Yes that’s a band aid on my hip. I injured my hip in a back country skiing helicopter crash on a mountaintop in Telluride many years ago. The pain my hip got a little bit worse each year. 12 years ago I was told it needed to be replaced but the surgery was daunting! And I had things to do!” Brinkley captioned the post.  “But quarantine put a damper on any plans so I decided to finally take time for myself and do something about the pain that had progressively influenced my decisions. I wanted to be ready to be able to say yes to opportunity,” she said.  Brinkley said she had her surgery around Thanksgiving and was dancing in her kitchen by New Year’s Eve.
*******It’s hard to get sympathy when you injure yourself skiing in Telluride!!
*******While she was under, they also slipped in some breast implants!!
******She saw Billy Joel at a party and said, “I did THAT??”

Queen Staffer Gets Jail Time!

Queen Elizabeth’s staffer is serving jail time after admitting to stealing items from the royal residence and selling them on eBay.  Buckingham Palace catering assistant Adam Canto pleaded guilty to three counts of theft between November 2019 and August 2020 at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, the BBC reported on Tuesday. He was sentenced on Monday to eight months in jail.   The former palace staffer stole a “significant quantity” of items, which were discovered by police at his quarters in the palace’s Royal Mews. The items included signed official photographs of Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as a royal state banquet photo album of President Trump’s visit to the U.K.  According to the outlet, about 77 items were taken from the palace shop, while others were stolen from staff lockers and Prince Andrew’s storeroom.  Queen Elizabeth has not been back at her London residence since March.

*******In the good ole days, he would have been beheaded!!!

Kylie Jenner Accused Of Cashing In On The Pandemic

After releasing her new Kylie Skin hand sanitizer ($7), Kylie Jenner is facing accusations of “profiting off the pandemic.”  “My @kylieskin hand sanitizer is here!! 80% alcohol, fast drying, and formulated with glycerin to prevent dryness!’” Jenner tweeted to announce Tuesday’s launch, with Kris Jenner adding, “’Kylie Skin Hand Sanitizer is here! So many incredible benefits in this product.”  While Jenner’s products typically fly off the shelves, the germ-killing spritz has yet to sell out.  Following the product’s launch, many took to Twitter to accuse Jenner of cashing in on the COVID-19 crisis. One wrote, “Kylie really made kylie skin hand sanitizer…………. like ? Let’s profit off a pandemic,” while another added, “Wow making a buck off covid. Low.”  “This feels like the spiritual successor to the [Kendall] Jenner Pepsi commercial,” another added, referring to the 2017 backlash over her supermodel sister’s famously “tone-deaf” advertisement.
*********What? Kylie Jenner is a money-grubbing whore?? SHOCK!!!
*****The Kardashian/Jenners need sanitizer. You have to scrub them down before you can touch ’em!!

Lana Del Rey Has a Familiar Ring-Is It From Clayton Johnson?-(National Enquirer)

Lana Del Rey has Clayton Johnson wrapped around her finger, quite literally-she’s wearing a diamond sparkler there that looks an awful lot like an engagement ring!  Fans locked onto the rock when the singer performed Dec. 14.  Lana, 35, and singer Clayton, 31, have been flirting on social media since the summer.

Kim & Kanye:  Separate Lives-(Globe)

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s six-year marriage is all but kaput, with the billionaire couple leading increasingly separate lives, pals say.  The 40-year-old mom of four has been going through hell living under one roof with the kinky bipolar rapper, say sources who spill she could finally call it quits shortly after the new year.  “The odds on them making it in the long-term are looking slim to zero at this point,” dishes an insider.  “They can barely stand the sight of each other.  “They’re eating apart, sleeping apart, barely interacting at all-though to their credit they’re being cordial in front of the kids.  “But the pulse is gone.  There’s a lot of bickering on the rare occasions they do hang out, and Kim feels like it’s sucking the life out of her.  The 24/7 tension is becoming unbearable.”

Kevin & Danielle:  Where It All Started-(Us Weekly)

On Dec. 19, Kevin Jonas commemorated his 11th wedding anniversary with wife Danielle by sharing a photo on Instagram of the two posing at the very spot they met over a decade ago.  “I thank God everyday for the gift he gave me,” Kevin gushed.  The musician, 33, says that the secret to his relationship with Danielle, 34, is not knowing everything about each other.  “That is actually the sign of a successful marriage,” he said, “because that means you can continue to talk and find new things out!”

Hollywood’s Best Bosses:  Jennifer Hudson-(Star)

Joy that’s a gift!  A few years ago, the 39-year-old revealed her generosity in a big way.  “My assistant Walter’s reaction when he found out I was buying him a house for Christmas!” the Chicago native posted on a video of her thunderstruck assistant Walter Williams, who is literally jumping for joy.  Walter’s more than Jennifer’s employee, though:  The two have been besties since sixth grade.  Says the mom of one, “He’s by far my closest friend.”

One Last Thing:  Mayim Bialik-(People)

The actress, 45, stars in Fox’s new comedy Call Me Kat.

Last time I was impressed-

Last weekend my oldest son, Miles [age 15], took the trash out without being asked.  He just noticed that it was full-I didn’t even have to remind him!

Last moment of gratitude-

I was grateful for my ex-husband’s [Michael Stone] cooking during Thanksgiving.  I worked pretty much 14 hours every day leading up to the holiday, and he did all the cooking.  His vegan roast was really amazing.

Last time I sang out loud-

Today, when we were filming my podcast Breakdown.  I’m the kind of person who sings out loud a lot.  If someone even says something that sounds like a lyric, I’ll sing it!

Cat Rescued From Overpass

Veterinarians said a cat is being treated for dehydration after spending multiple days stranded atop a highway column in Texas.  The El Paso Police Department, the Texas Department of Transportation and the El Paso Fire Department teamed up to rescue the cat from the column on Interstate 10 West in El Paso after the animal was spotted stranded days earlier.  A video of the rescue was posted to Facebook by El Paso Animal Services.  Officials said the cat was treated for dehydration, but was found to be otherwise uninjured.  “He probably was going up inside of a car engine to stay warm. Probably hitched a ride in someone’s car inside the engine, probably didn’t even know he was there,” Dr. Alana Canupp, chief veterinarian at El Paso Animal Services, told KTSM-TV. “He probably fell out, was lucky enough not to get hit and then made his way down to the pillar underneath I-10.”  See the video HERE.
*******The cat was very grateful: “What took you so long??”
*****By the way, nice scenario you cooked up there!!
*******If only this was the biggest news in America yesterday!!

Chickens Tear Thru McDonald’s

Police in New Jersey responded to a McDonald’s parking lot where a pair of chickens were reported “wreaking havoc” and chasing customers.  The Washington Township Police Department said in a Facebook post that an animal control officer was dispatched on a report of “a flock of chickens ‘wreaking havoc’ at our local McDonald’s on Route 31 South.”  The officer arrived to find two chickens “‘harassing’ and ‘chasing’ customers and pecking at car tires,” the department said.  The animal control officer was able to capture the chickens with help from the manager of the McDonald’s eatery, police said.  See the photo HERE.
********They must have been cocks!! They’re the ones who do the damage!!
*******How did the human race last this long?? Now we’re hiding from CHICKENS??
*****In a just world, these birds would be McNuggets by now!!

Shark Takes A Bite Out Of Swimmer’s Fin!

A California man who encountered a shark while swimming in the ocean said he came back to shore to discover the juvenile predator had attempted to bite his fin.  Phil Garn said he was wearing fins on his feet when he went for a swim in Coronado, and while in the water he felt something tug on one of his fins.  Garn said he turned and came face to face with a juvenile shark.  He came ashore and alerted lifeguards, who evacuated the rest of the swimmers from the water.  Garn said he was wearing longer fins than his usual pair and he suspects he might have sustained a serious injury if he had been wearing his shorter fins.  The swimmer is now calling on Coronado officials to install a system of buoys to track the movements of sharks in the area.
********The shark was thinking, “Next time, I’ll tenderize the meat…” 

Cheese Ball Spill

Transportation officials in Maryland said a tractor-trailer hauling 20,000 pounds of cheese balls overturned on the interstate, spilling snacks across lanes of traffic.  The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration said the tractor-trailer was involved in a crash last month on Interstate 495 in Montgomery County and spilled cheese ball snacks into the roadway.  The crash also resulted in a fuel spill and a sand truck was called to the scene to assist with clean-up efforts.  No injuries were reported from the incident. Two lanes of traffic were closed temporarily during the clean-up operation.
********So the cheeseballs got gas and sand on ’em?? Can we dust ’em off and eat ’em??
********A local radio station rushed to the scene.. they were looking for another cheeseball for their morning show!!
