Where's the Rim Shot When You Need One?

I'm not really sure who to blame on this one: the reporter who brought it up, or the press secretary who continued to entertain the question.

In a White House press conference on Friday, a reporter asked press secretary Josh Earnest what the president's reaction to Deflategate was.

Yes, that was a serious question. Clearly, the nation has nothing else on its mind.

Josh had a pretty good comeback. We'll give him credit for that, but then seriously, move along.

Not these reporters. Let's take the opportunity to grill a guy who has nothing to do with the story, and reallly no business weighing in on it.

Monday January 26

Last night at the Screen Actor's Guild Awards, one of the highlights happened before they even got off the red carpet. One reporter from TNT told Rashida Jones that she was very tan. Rashina is mixed. Wow. Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Patricia Arquette, and J.K. Simmons all gave moving SAG Award speeches Sunday night. "Birdman" and "Orange Is the New Black" were among the winners. But it was Viola Davis called out Hollywood for its lack of diversity.



There was a time when Kanye West would have gone nuclear on a guy over this so the fact that he could just smile and walk away is an improvement: Kanye and Kim Kardashian were walking through the airport in Washington, D.C. yesterday when a man tried to get him to sign a wedding picture of Kim. But Kanye refused because it was a picture from Kim's SECOND wedding, to Kris Humphries.



Mike Epps recently came under fire after he posted a "racist photo" online. The photo depicts three white man picking cotton while a black man whips them with a switch. In the corner of the photo, you see Martin Luther King Jr. looking down from the sky smiling. Epps captioned the photo with "I am so proud of you bro! lol." In a phone call, Epps says the whole situation is a misunderstanding and it all started with an email from his nephews. He said "I was just cracking a joke. I'm a comedian man. I thought it was funny. I didn't mean no harm. If I offended anybody, I apologize."



Not a good day for those that believe in the institution of marriage. Patrick Dempsey's wife Jillian has filed for divorce after 15 years of marriage. And it could get ugly since there's no prenup. Dr. McDreamy is about to be Single McDreamy. Meanwhile, Mandy Moore is splitting from Ryan Adams after almost six years of marriage. But their rep says, "It's a respectful, amicable parting of the ways."

Chris Brown is allegedly the victim of identity theft, and the police could be at fault. Chris was jailed last March after he was kicked out off his court-mandated rehab program, but was temporarily released under police supervision to travel to Washington, D.C. for a hearing in his assault case. While in official custody, Brown was transported to D.C., but not before stopping for a day at at the San Bernardino County Jail, where he was required to provide identification. Chris's I.D. was allegedly left behind at the jail. Now, nine months later, it surfaced online with a guy attempting to sell it for $10,000. An investigation is ongoing to determine how police lost possession of the card and if any charges will be filed.

Isn't News Supposed to be New?

By now you of course know that Kim Kardashian is releasing a book of selfies called "Selfish."

352 pages of selfies of Kim Kardashian.

Aimed, naturally, at people who don't have Instagram. Or Twitter. Or Facebook. Or the internet.

Anyway, Kim the Kween of Social Media shared the cover of her book with the world last week.

Surprise.

It's a picture of Kim, her hair wet, showing a lot of cleavage.

I know. Never saw it coming...

The Jersey Reverend

You never know what next to expect from The Jersey Shore's Snooki - aka Nicole Polizzi.

I won't even make you guess.

This time, she's an ordained minister.

She announced it the way all things are officially announced these days - on Twitter.

She made her ministry official so she could perform the marriage of her hair stylists in Connecticut in June.

Since making the announcement, she's gotten a deluge of requests to officiate at marriages. She could turn this into a nice little side business.

How long do you think before this becomes a reality TV show?

Saving Meg's Booty

Meghan Trainor may be all about that bass, but until Mr. Right comes along, no one's getting to see what her bass is all about.

"That’s the trick, it’s all about the mystery," she told London's Mail Online recently. "I save that for my boy. Well, for whoever gets to date me one day."

It's refreshing, in a way, that in this day and age when most of her peers seem to be in competition to wear as little as possible, that this pop star has some comparatively old-fashioned ideas.

You can read the quick article here.

It really is a breath of fresh air...

Bill Belichick Tackles Science

On Saturday, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick held a press conference to address the issue of deflated game balls in last week's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The only thing missing was a white lab coat and a blackboard, and he could have been mistaken for anyone's high school science teacher.

This theory, based on his own observations and test, is that the delation was related to atmospheric conditions.

Period.

So the folks at Fox Sports turned to another science expert to take a shot at the coach's explanation.

Bill Nye the science guy isn't buying a word of it. He says there's one thing and one thing only that affects the pressure of a football.

Don't let me spoil it for you - watch the report...

The Latest from Disney: The Measles

Authorities have traced a new outbreak of the measles on the West Coast to the happiest place on Earth - Disneyland.

The thought is that "an infected foreigner" - that's how Time magazine reports it, anyway - carried the disease into the park sometime just before Christmas.

Through contact with unvaccinated individuals, the measles has spread. Again, that's a theory, this time from someone at the California department of health, as reported by Reuters news agency.

They're counting 70 cases so far that can be traced back, they believe, to Disneyland.

That's a lot of measles, especially when you consider it was thought to have been eradicated in the United States as of 2000.

If You See Them Before the Game, Are They Still Super Bowl Commercials?

Remember the good old days when you actually had to watch the Super Bowl to see the Super Bowl commercials?

Time was, if you missed the Super Bowl, you might get a recap a day or two later, and then you'd have to wait to randomly catch the ads at some point after that.

No more. Thanks to social media and the internet, we can see the ads that will cost big bucks for their appearance in the Big Game days, weeks, months in advance.

Last week, the folks at Budweiser released their 90-second #upforwhatever human Pac Man ad during NBC's Tonight Show.

I guess we'll just have to watch the Super Bowl for the football now...
