HollyWooWoo Report
January 23 2015


TGIF!!! We made it to Friday ... while normally, I would be thrilled for a Friday - today is a little different. I have a sick toddler at home. BOO! And was up ALL night with poor Maggie. High fever, coughing ... off to the CHKD Pediatric Associates office I will go. Sick kids is the worst, right? Anyhoo - before I leave - here's what's happening in Hollywood.

Actor Seth Rogen has responded to all the haters who attacked him via Twitter after he posted a comment comparing the 'American Sniper' movie to a Quentin Tarrantino film. I guess this is his way of apologizing ... I still think his comments were really offfensive. Wanna read his apology? CLICK HERE

Now let's talk football ... not something I normally do in the HWW Report, but I will today because #DeflateGate is such a Hot Topic. Yesterday Tom Brady & Bill Bellichick held separate Press Conferences where they both denied knowing anything about how 11 balls were deflated during the big game last weekend. Huh? How do you not know as the Head Coach & the freakin QB not know anything? I smell fish. This is ridiculous and I don't even like football. Unless were talkin bout the COWBOYS!

Happy 41st Birthday today to actress Tiffani (dropped the Amber) Theissen - remember her from 'Saved by the Bell'? I can't believe she is 41! Insane! Where does the time go?

Will Ferrell Knocks a Cheerleader Off Her Feet

Not a headline you'd normally associate with Will Ferrell, right?

Not to worry, it was all for a movie.

Will was in New Orleans, taping a scene for his new movie, Daddy's Home, during half-time at a Pelicans/ Lakers game.

A couple of guys in the audience were able to catch the action.

The first is this great shot on Twitter of the second after the moment Will's basketball hit the cheerleader in the face... The second is this cell phone video of the whole scene, from the setup through Will's ejection from the building. It's a little shaky, but you get the idea...

East Versus West in Commercials Too

Another Super Bowl ad "leaked" onto the internet yesterday, this one for Carl's Jr, a fast food chain located mostly in the western part of the United States.

So, the ad will be aired only in the western region of the US.

It's a bit racy, with a model walking through a farmer's market, talking about how she likes to go au naturel.

It's to promote Carl's new All-Natural Burger, and it's fairly clever in a photographic sense.

But according to an article in USA Today, one marketing expert doesn't think it will do its job - selling hamburgers - especiall to a Super Bowl audience.

"'It's like porn meets American Pastime,' says branding consultant Erika Napoletano. 'It makes NFL cheerleaders -- underpaid and underclothed -- look like nuns in comparison.'"

You decide. If you live in the West, you can wait til next Sunday. If you live in the East, take a look now.

"Do What We Need to Do, and Then, We Get to Live"

There's another big Sunday looming in your future.

If you're a Walking Dead fan, that is.

On February 8, a week after the Big Game, the dead and the living and some in between return for Season 5.

In case you haven't seen it, here's the trailer...

If you're a Deadniac, you've probably got a viewing party planned that will rival any Super Bowl party, ever!

The Show Must Go On, Unless...

Idina Menzel - better known to John Travolta as Adele Dazeem - will be taking a week off from her Broadway play, "If/Then."

And the play will shut down while she's gone.

Why?

So she can prepare for her appearance at the Super Bowl to sing the National Anthem.

She's probably not taking any chances, especially after she caught all sorts of flack for not being able to hit a high note during a live performance on New Year's Eve while singing her hit song from Frozen, "Let It Go."

So rest, relax, warm up, and practice those high notes, Adele!

Breaking Bad, Airborne

A six-propeller drone aircraft crashed into a supermarket parking lot right on the Mexico-California this week.

Okay, so accidents happen, right?

This was no ordinary drone.

It was a delivery drone.

Still no big deal, right? I mean, Amazon's been talking about these things for months, years.

This delivery drone was packed with six one-pound containers of methamphetamines.

It's sort of like Walter White taking over the reins at Fed Ex...

Bad Lip Reading, NFL-Style

Here's a little bit of NFL coverage that has nothing to do with deflated balls.

And isn't that refreshing?

The folks at Bad Lip Reading have taken footage from the 2014/2015 season, and dubbed their own reads onto them.

Flat out hilarious.

Even more that WhereDidTheAirGoGate...

He Had a Dream... of Seeing Orcas

Rich German's a paddle boarder in Laguna Beach, California.

He's been paddling his board in the Pacific for years, and he says he's witnessed a bunch of marine life.

But he's always dreamed, he says, of seeing killer whales up close.

Last week, his dream came true, and he posted a video to YouTube capturing his close encounter.

The visit starts at about the 1:40 mark, but his explanation of the event is worth watching too...

Chikungunya Gonna Get Ya

Lindsay Lohan's got it. The Chikungunya virus, that is.

It's carried by mosquitos, and apparently she picked it up on a recent trip to Bora Bora.

The New York Daily News reports that she's now in a London hospital, being treated for the disease, which generally causes joint aches and high fever for about a week before going away.

Sometimes, the aches can linger. Lindsay's been dealing with this for at least a few weeks now - she posted this picture and message to Instagram three weeks ago.

No word on whether the mosquito survived the encounter, by the way.
 
 

Still with chikungunya but feeling better on and off @patrickaufdenkamp @oprah thank you for your call #beherenow
