Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - May 11, 2015
May 11, 2015
Sucking the life out of the wire services:
Summer is almost here, so do you plan to get a deep, dark golden tan? You may want to think again! HUGH JACKMAN is speaking out about the evils of the sun after being diagnosed with skin cancer four different times! The "Wolverine" star tells People that his buddy NICOLE KIDMAN has the "most beautiful skin" because she's always protected her pale complexion and used to get made of fun for staying in the shade!
Hugh has co-created a new line of sunscreen called Pure Sun Defense and urges everyone over the age of 25 to get a yearly check up. (Lee)
CISSY HOUSTON talked to "Entertainment Tonight" about her granddaughter BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN over the weekend.
"She's the same, she's not progressing at all," Cissy said. "She's not gone yet, but you know, whatever the Lord decides, I'm ready for her... I have nothing to do with that. That's his job. It's his territory, you know? And I understand it."
It's been more than three months now since Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her home in Roswell, GA. And "ET" says while she's no longer in a medically-induced coma, doctors apparently have told the family that Krissi suffers from irreversible brain damage and that nothing can be done to better her condition.
Locked Up for their own good:
How big of a check is TOO big for a bank to cash? JEFF WATERS apparently thought a check for $368 billion dollars wasn't a huge deal. But that's not the weird part. Waters, allegedly high on bath salts, was ticked when the bank wouldn't cash the check that he bought off a homeless man for a $100 dollars. He REALLY wanted to start that one-of-a-kind business --an Italian restaurant IN the Earth.
He told the police, "I'm 10-percent Italian. Cooking authentic Italian food is in my blood. I had planned to make the restaurant 80 million square feet and able to accommodated [sic] 30 million eaters at once, plus it was gonna be totally underwater so people could look at sharks while they ate. But the bank wouldn't give me my money they owed me."
Waters was charged with forgery, unlawfully carrying Chinese throwing stars, and the possession of bath salts. He was released on $23 thousand dollars bond and has one heck of a mugshot! See it here. (Myers)
The Reel Deal:
There's another THREE STOOGES movie in the works.
You may remember there was a 2012 movie on the trio which starred SEAN HAYES as LARRY, CHRIS DIAMANTOPOULOS as MOE and WILL SASSO as CURLY. Now, the three actors have all signed up to redo their roles for the new movie, which Variety sez is reportedly "a truly unique blend of fast paced action with the hilarious mayhem of the Three Stooges."
FYI: Stooges audio HERE.
Grace notes from Vinny Marino:
PRINCE released his protest single, "Baltimore" on Saturday. His official website says he recorded the tune on April 30th at his Paisley Park Studios and played all the instruments himself... because he can. Prince told his local FOX TV affiliate in Minneapolis that he was inspired to do something creatively after he saw what happened in Baltimore during the FREDDIE GRAY protests, and because he's concerned about one of his idols, JONI MITCHELL who is dealing with some serious health problems. Yesterday, Prince played a "Rally 4 Peace" benefit concert at Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena. Proceeds from the show will go to various youth charities in the city. (Marino)
