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?

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...

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...

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.

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...

HollyWooWoo Report

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?

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.

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!

"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!
