Aquaman Was Injured During Filming

Jason Momoa says he sustained multiple injuries on the set of Aquaman 2.  He detailed his injuries during Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.  Momoa will reprise Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, in the upcoming DC Extended Universe film Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.  Ellen asked Momoa about reports of his injuries on set.  “I’m getting old, that’s what happening,” Momoa confirmed. “I messed up my eyes. I just got something in it that kinda cut it up, and then I gotta get surgery. I have a hernia, I’ve got ribs out. I’m just getting beat up.”  “It’s gonna be a great movie, you’re gonna love it,” he said.  Momoa has previously injured himself while filming.  “I just kind of give it, yeah,” he said. “I love my job and I get a little too excited, then the age thing, you know. I’m an aging superhero right now.”  Momoa and the Aquaman 2 cast started filming in London in July.
*******His worst problem: Water on the Knee!!!
******He promises if they give him another sequel… he’ll learn how to swim!!
****By the way, that’s not real water.. it’s movie water!!
*****We think he’s just fishing for a compliment!!

Wendy Williams Out Until November

As Wendy Williams continues to recover from health issues, her hiatus from her daytime talk show has been extended into November.  The “Wendy Williams Show” announced on Instagram Tuesday that comedian Whitney Cummings will guest host next week and former “The View” panelist Sherri Shepherd will guest host the first week of November.  Many fans in the comments section seemed unpleased that the show would continue with a rotating door of guest hosts.  “We want WENDY WILLIAMS! PERIODT,” one person commented.  Another remarked, “This is definitely Wendy’s last season.” Cummings, 39, tried to appease the naysayers, writing, “Nobody can ever replace Wendy but we will do what we can to fill in so she can come back stronger than ever.”  Last week, the host’s production company, Debmar-Mercury, cited ongoing health issues as the reason for Williams’ absence.  “She is making progress, but is experiencing serious complications as a direct result of Graves’ Disease and her thyroid condition,” their statement said. “It has been determined that more time is needed before she is able to return to her live hosting duties.”
******That Gravy Disease is really tough to beat!!
*****It’s on the hush-hush, but she’s having a brain transplant!!! She asked Oprah to be the donor!!
******Right now, she’s preparing for her comeback: she’s practicing fainting and farting!!

Queen Put On Royal Rest

Queen Elizabeth II has reluctantly canceled a trip to Northern Ireland at the behest of medical experts who want her to rest for a few days.  The Palace didn’t offer specifics on the decision but says the 95-year-old monarch is “in good spirits,” and disappointed that she will no longer be able to visit Northern Ireland for engagements.  “The Queen sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland, and looks forward to visiting in the future,” the palace said.  Instead of the trip, Queen Elizabeth II will be resting at Windsor Castle, where she has stayed since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic last year out of an abundance of caution for her safety.  The decision comes just days after Elizabeth was seen using a walking stick at a major public event when attending a Westminster Abbey service marking the centenary of the Royal British Legion, an armed forces charity.  The Queen is clearly reluctant to allow her age to slow her down. The news comes as the British royal politely declined the honor of being named “Oldie of the Year” by a British magazine, saying she does not meet “the relevant criteria.”  Oldie magazine on Tuesday published the response instead of officially giving her the accolade.   “Her Majesty believes you are as old as you feel, as such The Queen does not believe she meets the relevant criteria to be able to accept, and hopes you will find a more worthy recipient,” said a letter from her assistant private secretary, Tom Laing-Baker. He ended the letter “with Her Majesty’s warmest best wishes.”
******She’s in bed right now with a gin and tonic and copy of Cosmo!!
******She said, “Let me catch up with the royal shows on television!!! What is that ‘Tiger King’ fellow like??”
*******There have been budget cuts, so while she’s hanging around, she’s dusting and cleaning a few toilets!!

Dr. Dre Served With Divorce Papers At Funeral

Dr. Dre’s estranged wife, Nicole Young, had him served with divorce papers at his grandmother’s funeral, according to a new report.  The process server arrived at a cemetery in Los Angeles on Monday, where Dre was laying his late relative to rest and got into a dispute with him when he tried to give him the legal documents, sources told TMZ Wednesday.  Insiders close to Dre claim he was standing right beside his grandma’s casket when the server tried to give him the papers, TMZ said.  However, sources on Young’s side say the documents were served at the cemetery’s parking lot, according to TMZ.  Dre reportedly was so upset that he would not take the court papers in his hands, forcing the process server to drop the documents either by the gravesite or the parking lot, according to conflicting sources.  TMZ reports that the documents ordered Dre to pay a balance of $1,224,567 for Young’s attorney’s fees.
*******What’s the difference a tick and an attorney?? A tick falls off when you die!!!
*******He should have jumped in the casket with her!!!
*****It must be hard to be a doctor and not be able to save your grandma!!!

Adele Has McDonald’s About Once A Week

Adele has revealed she doesn’t go easy on McDonald’s, indulging in the franchise’s fries, chicken nuggets and Big Macs at least once a week.  She made the claim during an interview with British Vogue on Tuesday, adding that McDonald’s would be her “death row meal.”  “My ideal meal, my death row meal, my last meal, would be a McChicken Nugget with a Big Mac and then fries,” she told the publication in a video shared on YouTube.  “That’s my three-course. I eat it at least once a week!”  Adele, who last year shocked fans by losing nearly 50 pounds after following the sirtfood diet, also shared other tidbits about her eating habits in the video, which showed her taste-testing classic British meals.  She revealed she loves to cook her own food, despite being able to afford a personal chef.  “I learned to cook on my own when I was like, 18. I was getting loads of takeaways, and it was just costing too much money, so I think I read ’30-Minute Meals’ by good old Jamie Oliver. That’s how I learned the basics of cooking,” she humorously stated.
*****Is it just us?? Or are you wondering how much McDonald’s paid her to say that??
TOPIC: When the time comes, what would YOU like for your last meal???
****Adele’s gonna get to heaven, and St. Peter will say: “A Big Mac? Are you kidding me right now??”

Star Wars Memorabilia For Sale

A Bunch of Star Wars props and costumes from the franchise are heading to the auction block next month. Items include Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber from “Revenge of the Sith,” a Stormtrooper helmet from “Return of the Jedi” and more.  “We’re thrilled to be back with another amazing collection of ‘Star Wars’ treasures. Fans will have the opportunity to get their hands on some truly iconic pieces from the ‘Star Wars’ universe, spanning from ‘A New Hope’ (1979) to ‘The Last Jedi’ (2017),” Prop Store CEO Stephen Lane said in a press release about the auction. The items will be sold in conjunction with more than 1,000 props and costumes at the company’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction, set to happen from Nov. 9 to Nov. 11 in London — although online and phoned-in bids will also be accepted.   While Skywalker’s lightsaber and the Stormtrooper helmet are the headlining lots to hit the block, their estimated worth of $82,440 and $206,000, respectively, doesn’t put them at the top of the price range. That slot is reserved for a light-up ILM X-wing filming miniature from “Return of the Jedi,” which is expected to sell for up to $412,200.
********If you’re bidding for this stuff, we’re pretty sure: you’re not married!!
****”Hey, remember that house we were gonna buy??? I got something else instead!!”
********For $412,000, they’d better throw in “one night with Padme!!”

Mariah’s Age-Old Problem:  New Stars Are Younger!-(National Enquirer)

Mad Mariah Carey, 52, has wiped out her entire, longtime PR team in a snit over how younger singers are getting all the press SHE thinks she deserves, according to an insider!  “Mariah isn’t happy with where her career is and is lashing out, blaming everyone but herself,” spilled a source.  “It isn’t easy growing older in the music business, watching Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga get all the opportunities that once were offered to you!


Former WWE superstar Ronda Rousey, 34, and her Honolulu-born hubby, mixed martial artist Travis Browne, 39, had their first baby together, daughter La’Akea Makalapuaokalanipo.  Her Hawaiian first name translates to Sacred Light.

It’s a Livin’-(Us Weekly)

Carrie Underwood-

Summer vacation wasn’t just a day at the beach for Carrie!  The country singer pulled double duty, working as a cashier at a gas station and at a rundown hotel that gave her the creeps:  “It was very much empty,” she’s said.  “Like, The Shining empty.”  To make it worse, the Oklahoma native had to put up with a “horrible boss” who would pretend she was his kid.  “He’s like, ‘Doesn’t she look like me?  This is my daughter.’……I worked there maybe a month, and I was like, ‘I don’t feel this is for me.’”

Jen & John:  Ready To Wed?-(Star)

Are those wedding bells for Jen Garner and long-time beau John Miller?  A source says the couple, who’ve mostly kept their romantic life under wraps since getting together in 2018, is close to getting engaged.  “Jen’s told friends that he’s exactly the man she needs,” the source says of the burger CEO, 43.  “He’s down-to-earth and dependable.”  The 49-year-old mom of three was left reeling from her split with Ben Affleck, adds the insider, “so she really took time getting close to John and has finally let her guard down and says she’s in love.”  While the Yes Day actress has yet to make an announcement, says the insider, “friends are taking bets on when John will pop the question!”

Kelly:  Ca$hing In On Her Divorce-(Life & Style)

Turning trash into treasure!  Last year, Kelly Clarkson said that life had “been a little bit of a dumpster” amid her spilt from former music manager Brandon Blackstock-but she channeled that heartbreak into “like 60 songs.”  Her latest single?  “Christmas Isn’t Canceled (Just You).”  The first release from her new album, When Christmas Comes Around…..the song’s lyrics are about defiantly enjoying the holidays after someone “ruined all my favorite things.”  “Kelly is slamming her ex and cashing in on their divorce at the same time!” says an insider of the 39-year-old, who filed to end things in June 2020.

One Last Thing:  Bill Pullman-(People)

The actor, 67, stars in USA Network’s series The Sinner.

Last guilty pleasure-

My wife [Tamara] and I are in western New York state and went to Lain’s Cider Mill.  We got a dozen of their cider donuts and just finished the last of them.  People wait for them like Santa Claus.

Last tradition I embraced-

In my second movie [Spaceballs], John Candy said, “Pullman, if you’re the lead, you should have a gift for everybody.”   So I had these Celtic North Stars made for The Sinner [crew].  I took a blood oath with Candy; he took me under his wing, so I have to do it.

Last injury-

Three years ago I fell out of a tree with a chainsaw [in my hands] and broke four ribs.  I think I fell about 15 feet.  All I knew was that I was covered in sawdust and going to be hurting soon.

Loser of the Week-(In Touch)


Seinfeld fans go ballistic after the streamer literally cuts jokes out of the popular sitcom by adjusting the aspect ratio for modern TVs.



Bear Destroys Gaming Computer

An Alberta man captured photos when a bear wandered into his family’s home and made a mess of his son’s gaming computer.  Sean Reddy said the bear encounter at his Fort McMurray-area home began when his dogs cornered the bear in the family’s garage.  Reddy said he got his dogs to safety and the bear was gone when he checked the garage, leading him to assume the animal had left the area.  The father said he soon discovered he was wrong when his 10-year-old son reported hearing scratching sounds inside the house. The bear had climbed in through a window and Reddy saw the animal cross a hallway into his son’s bedroom.  Reddy posted photos to Facebook showing the bear investigating his son’s computer.  The resident enlisted the help of a neighbor to use a bookshelf and other furniture to create a barricade before reopening the bedroom door to allow the bear to leave through the same window it used to enter the home.  See the pics HERE.
********But not before the bear got to level three on Donkey Kong!!
*******This is what happens when animals run out of quarters at the arcade!!
******He wanted to play Grand Theft Auto, so he could practice breaking into cars!!

Old Grateful Dead Shirt Sells Big

A Grateful Dead T-shirt from the band’s original merchandise was auctioned for a record-breaking price.  The 1967 shirt, sold as part of Sotheby’s “From the Vault: Property from the Grateful Dead and Friends,” sold for $17,640, setting a new world record for the most money spent on a vintage rock shirt.  The previous record was set in 2011, when a vintage Led Zepplin shirt was sold for $10,000 on eBay.  The Grateful Dead shirt was one of the band’s first pieces of official merchandise and was designed by Allan “Gut” Terk, a Hells Angel and graphic artist who was a prominent figure in California’s counterculture movement in the 1960s.  The winning bidder, Bo Bushnell, operates the Outlaw Archive account on Instagram, which is dedicated to 1960s motorcycle culture.
******They asked the guy who bought it: “Where do you live??” He said, “1970!!!”
******Again, someone who is NOT married!!!
******”Hey, remember that vacation we were gonna take???”

Mountain Lion Caught In Condo Complex

Wildlife officials in California said they successfully captured a mountain lion that wandered into a condo complex and climbed a tree.  The California Department of Fish and Wildlife said residents of the Sunrise Palms Condominium Community in Palm Springs contacted authorities Monday morning when they spotted the mountain lion in a back yard.  Fish and Wildlife officials responded alongside Palm Springs Police and animal control officers to tranquilize the cougar, which was found in a tree.  Officials said the feline was found to be underweight and injured.  “The decision was to guard it and relocate it but after looking at the health of the lion, it was really emaciated. Looked like he got hit by a car possibly because all the nail beds were fractured,” Fish and Wildlife lieutenant supervisor Kyle Chang told KESQ-TV. “I think that it came down here probably hunting because it’s a juvenile smaller cat. It might have gotten kicked out of its territory — home territory and it’s looking for its own territory.”  See the video HERE.
*******All the cats in the condos were going… “GODZILLA!!!!”
********Living in Cali is gettin’ dangerous!!! Keep your head on swivel!!!
*******There are quite a few cougars in Palm Springs!! They hang out in bars, looking for hot 40-year-old men!!

Florida Man Uses Finger Gun

A Florida man has been arrested after an incident at a Waffle House in which a suspect who stated he was “high and drunk” used his fingers in the shape of a gun to ultimately get away with some napkins, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.  The incident took place on Monday night at the Waffle House located on Bandit Street in Madison, which is located in North Florida east of Tallahassee.  Sheriff David Harper stated a Waffle House employee placed a 911 call to report the crime, saying that no one had been injured and that the suspect had left in a vehicle.  Witnesses said the man was wearing a gray hoodie, dark jeans and dark hat plus was with a small dog. They said he began to shout, “Get on the ground, y’all are getting robbed,” the sheriff’s office said.  Witnesses said he announced he was “high and drunk” and then grabbed some napkins and walked out, the sheriff’s office said. While no weapon was seen, witnesses said he raised his hands with fingers pointed in the shape of a gun.
***********Uh…. what??
*******And this is NOT the craziest thing that happened in Florida that day!!!
*****It’s not even the craziest thing that happened at a Waffle House that day!!
******The man was charged with “grand theft napkins!!!”







18 Guys You’ll Inevitably Meet On Dating Apps



The Niece Guy

“The kid in the third pic is my niece.” Niece Guy (or Nephew Guy ― the kid’s gender doesn’t matter) wants you to know he has family-man values without family-man baggage. Yeah, the 3-year-old on top of his shoulders is cute and seems to like him. But God forbid you think he’s a single dad!


The CEO At Self-Employed

“CEO at self-employed”? You are 100% paying for dinner because this guy has not held down a job since 2011.


The Dog Guy

Dog is absolutely this guy’s co-pilot. The spiritual brother to Niece Guy, Dog Guy includes no less than three photos of his dog and, yes, “the pupper can come along if we hang out.” Dog Guy really, really hopes you like his husky because he spent $1,600 on her, and he’s really banking on this increasing his Hinge appeal since his DMs are drier than the Sahara.


Jim From “The Office”

It’s 2020 and some people still have “employed at Dunder Mifflin” on their profiles. When you get right down to it, he’s “just a Jim looking for his Pam”! Swipe right if your idea of a great date is The Cheesecake Factory and having so-so sex while “The Office” plays in the background.


The Five-Star Boy

”⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️” -my mom. Great job, Kyle, never seen that line before. Make no mistake: You will forever be second fiddle to Five-Star Boy’s mom.


The Torso

No man is attached to this profile, just a disembodied set of abs. The ’90s had “The Body” ― supermodel Elle Macpherson― and Tinder has The Torso. Self-objectifying torso guys post a maximum of two photos and both are poorly lit views of their midsection. Honest to God, who’s swiping right on these guys? Girl, you’re in danger.


The “Swipe Left” Guy

Some versions of this are jokey, some are patronizingly serious. “Swipe left if you think pineapple belongs on pizza.” “Swipe left if you voted for Trump.” “Swipe left if you believe in astrology.” “Swipe left if all your photos are duck face.” “Swipe left if you are a sentient being.”


The “Add Me On Instagram” Guy

This guy is “never on this app” so be sure to add him on Instagram. (He really wants to get his follower count up to 3,000, thanks, lady!)


The Sarcastic Guy

Don’t let anyone tell you that Americans aren’t interested in learning another language besides English. If you’re on a dating app, you know that at least half of the male population is “fluent in sarcasm.”


The Out-Of-Towner

Foreign guy in town from “February 18-February 23.” DTF? Catch him while you can.


The Reply Guy

On Twitter, a Reply Guy is someone who responds to tweets in an annoying or overly familiar way, completely unsolicited (nine times out of 10, he’s responding to tweets from women). On dating apps, a Reply Guy relentlessly badgers you once you’ve matched or responded to a message or two. “What are you doing this fine Saturday evening?” “Hello?” “Have I lost you? 😢” “I miss us.”


The Fisherman

This guy just caught a grouper fish while shirtless on his uncle’s boat! So did a million other guys on Bumble. He may or may not have another photo where he’s wearing full camo in a casual, non-military setting.


The Hatfish

In a play on catfishing ― the practice of using someone else’s photo to lure people in ― someone who hatfishes looks great on paper (err, screen) but weirdly, he’s wearing a hat in all of his photos. Underneath his many baseball caps, the hatfish is bald. Sadly, he did not get the memo that bald guys like Jason Statham (patron saint of bald men at this point, no?) and Stanley Tucci are totally hot.


The Kittenfish

Another play on catfishing, the kittenfish is much more sly in their con. Their photos are their own … but they’re 10 years old or filtered to the heavens. The actual person is unrecognizable when you meet. (In fact, we know someone who FaceTimes before first dates to make sure matches aren’t kittenfishing.) Kittenfishing is clearly less egregious than catfishing, but it’s still shady.


Your Brother

Or cousin. Or distant relative. Or best guy friend. There is no dating app algorithm that filters out people uncomfortably close to you, so at some point while swiping, you’re probably going to be reaching for the brain bleach. Don’t swipe left until you’ve taken the obligatory screencaps, though. (You’ll need those when you make fun of your cousin next Christmas for writing, “I’m just a boy, standing in front of a bunch

of people on an app, asking them to love me.

The Empty Profile Guy

What is the strategy of the Empty Profile Guy? A firm belief that they’re so hot, people will swipe right under the sheer power of their hotness? If he puts zero effort into his profile, he’ll put zero effort into your date.


The Couple

There’s no shortage of polyamorous couples scouring Tinder for unicorns (aka the mythical third person to turn them into a throuple for the night). “Hetero couple looking for a third,” the profile will read, with plenty of selfies and fun casual pics to confirm their coupledom. If you swipe right, you’ve taken their unicorn-hunting bait.


The (Almost) 6-Foot-Tall Man

Every single man on dating apps is “5′ 10, if that matters.”
