Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell Open Up About Love

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell recalled on Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show how they fell in love on the set of the 1984 film Swing Shift.  They have been together for over 35 years and have one child together, son Wyatt Russell. Hawn also has a daughter, Kate Hudson, and son, Oliver Hudson, with her ex-husband Bill Hudson, while Russell has a son, Boston Russell, with his ex-wife, Season Hubley.  On Ellen, Hawn said Russell impressed her with how good he was with her kids.  “I remember about Kurt — not only being really sexy and handsome and all that stuff and fun and whatever, a good co-star — I loved the way he looked at my children. It was really something special,” she said.  “He’s good at that. He’s good with kids,” she added. “I kind of went, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing.'”  Russell also recalled the first time he saw Hawn on set. The actor had spent a late night out with his dad and came on set to sleep in an office. When he woke up for work, he saw Hawn.  “I went through the door and the first thing I saw was Goldie. Immediately, it just came at me. I said, ‘Wow, you have a great figure,'” Russell said. “I’d never associated that with Goldie. She kind of looked at me and smiled. I said, ‘Yes, let’s sit down and go to work.'”  Hawn previously said in an interview with the ITV talk show Loose Women in 2016 that she and Russell made a conscious decision to never legally marry.  “Marriage is an interesting, psychological thing. If you need to feel bound to someone, then it’s important to be married. If you have independence … there’s something psychological about not being married,” she said.
********It also helps to be financially independent!! Remember that, girls!!
******If you love someone, set them free!! If they don’t come back to you, hunt their ass down!!
*****If Alanis Morissette had this attitude, she never would have had a hit album!!! You gotta be bitter sometimes!!

The Rock Won’t Concede Sexiest man Title

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson poked fun at Michael B. Jordan in a recent Instagram post about the 2020 “Sexiest Man Alive.”  People announced last week that Jordan, the “Creed” and “Black Panther” star, was named this year’s sexiest man. Johnson was previously given the accolade in 2016 and made the list again in 2020, but ranked lower than Jordan.  In a post on Instagram over the weekend, the Rock talked about his recent interview with the magazine and congratulated Jordan on his win before saying that he was not giving up the title he won in 2016.   “Fun talkin’ about ‘living each day to the fullest’ in @people’s SEXIEST MAN ALIVE issue. Congrats to my brother @michaelbjordan on the new sexy crown,” Johnson wrote.  He added: “I CONCEDE NOTHING.“
*****He’s right… it looks like fraud!! Massive fraud!!

A clip of their touching conversation currently has over 600,000 likes on Instagram.  “So I just wanted to say thank you to the community, friends and family on Instagram for reaching out and showing me this beautiful boy Danny who is going through chemo and has cancer,” wrote Momoa. The clip he’s referring to was first posted Nov. 15 by a Facebook page chronicling 7-year-old Danny Sheehan’s battle with pineoblastoma — a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer that he’s had since 2017.  “I love Aquaman,” the Marshfield, Mass. native exclaims in the touching home movie, adding that it’s his “favorite character.”  Momoa was so moved by the video that he decided to “Facetime him and spend some time talking to him,” the star wrote on the ‘Gram. He uploaded a clip of their heart-to-heart chat on Wednesday.  “Hi, beautiful boy!,” bellowed Momoa to his superfan, who gushes that he is “so excited” to be talking to his hero.  “I have been hearing about you all over, from all of my friends,” Momoa said. “And I wanted to call you and say hi and see how you’re doing.”  See the video HERE.

Johnny Rotten Attacked By Fleas!

Punk singer Johnny Rotten was shrieking a different tune after discovering flea bites on his penis and inner thigh after letting squirrels inside his Los Angeles home, a report said.  “I looked down there this morning at my willy and there’s a f–ing flea bite on it,” the Sex Pistols singer told UK’s Daily Star. “And there’s another one on the inside of my leg.”  Rotten, whose real name is John Lydon, said he became enamored with the furry critters and allowed them to stay in his Venice Beach home. But soon enough, there was anarchy in the LA pad.  “The bites, wow, last night was murder because of it. The itching too. It’s such a poxy thing to get caught out on,” he said.  “The only way around it, because I’m not going to blame the poor little squirrels, is to Vaseline my legs.”
******Fleas are always attracted to things that are rotten… like Johnny Rotten!!
*********At first we thought he was bitten by Flea from the Chili Peppers!! But that would be wrong!!

Lost Wallet Returned After 25 Years

An Australian man who lost his wallet at a New Year’s Eve party on the beach was reunited with his lost property when it was found 25 years later. Joseph Bewes said he was on the beach this week in Lennox Head, New South Wales, when he came across a wallet that appeared to have spent a great deal of time exposed to the elements.  “Paul G Davis. Found your wallet washed up on the beach,” Bewes wrote on a post in a local community Facebook group. “Sorry, all the cards expired in ’95 but the 5 bucks might still be good. You just bought future you a coffee 25 years ago. Yew!”  A woman named Jodie Davis recognized the name and identified the wallet’s owner as her husband’s cousin. She sent a screenshot of the post to Paul Davis, who recalled losing the wallet 25 years earlier.  “Straight away he remembered it and knew that he lost it — yeah he was blown away,” Jodie Davis told 7News.  Bewes and Paul Davis met up Friday on the beach, where the wallet was returned to its original owner. Davis brought along a six pack of beer that the men shared as a thank-you for Bewes’ efforts to get the wallet back to him.

Burglary Bear Returned To The Wild

When a Lake Tahoe community had an unbearable problem, California wildlife officials stepped in to help.  The California Department of Fish and Wildlife relocated a bear in September that officials said was the same animal caught on camera stealing food from a grocery store, a gas station convenience store and a birthday party. Videos from at least two of the incidents made national headlines.  The department trapped the black bear in September and matched it to early incidents from DNA, according to a Fish and Wildlife blog post. Officials brought him to the wildlife investigations lab in Sacramento and found that the bear was more than 16 years old and had a poorly healed injury on its left hind foot.  The bear’s troublemaking behavior classified it as a “habituated bear,” meaning it has become used to encountering people and having no negative consequences. Efforts to change its behavior were unsuccessful, so Fish and Wildlife officials decided to move the bear to a wilder place.  They released the bear “in a large expanse of wild, suitable bear habitat,” officials wrote in the blog. To make sure it doesn’t make its way back to civilization, they put a GPS tracking collar on the bear.  Fish and Wildlife shared a video of the release. Officers honk a car horn, shout and fire beanbags at the bear to scare it off into the woods.  See the bear in action HERE.
**********After all that time feeding off humans, that bear is probably toast out in the wild!!
********The next step in bear evolution?? They learn how to take off trackers!!
*******We’ve seen the signs: “Don’t feed the wildlife… to the other wildlife!!”
