Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check
January 7, 2011
The White House:
Mediaite is reporting that PRESIDENT OBAMA will sit down for a one-on-one interview with the Fox News Channel's BILL O'REILLY as part of Fox's Super Bowl pre-game festivities. It's a move that most see as more about tradition rather than a genuine thaw between Fox and the White House, as it's become customary for a sitting president to sit down for an interview with the network hosting the Super Bowl.
The interview probably won't be too combative. O'Reilly has often praised the president for some of his legislative initiatives. (Pacelli)
Trolling for publicity:
Warning: note sexual content.
ADAM LEVINE from MAROON 5 is a serious piece of rock-hard man candy. The singer did a provocative photo shoot for a charity called Everyman, which encourages young dudes to get tested for prostate and testicular cancer. The steamy pictorial features the studmuffin completely nude with his (ahem) "goodies" covered up by a mystery woman's hand.
Editor's Note: Lady DJ's will probably need verification for this story. We understand. Have at it! (Lee)
The royal wedding won't be as traditional as most weddings. KATE MIDDLETON and PRINCE WILLIAM's nuptials on April 29th won't see the bride tossing the bouquet to the single ladies and won't even have the bride and groom kissing at the altar. An insider tells Us Weekly "this is the church of England so there won't be a kiss." (Myers)
Jackson hearing continues:
MICHAEL JACKSON was already dead when paramedics arrived. That's what one of the responders told the judge yesterday in the continuing hearings to determine if Dr. CONRAD MURRAY should go on trial for involuntary manslaughter. The Los Angeles Times says paramedic Martin Blount testified that when they arrived at the scene, Micheal looked like he had been dead for at least 20 minutes, even though Dr. Murray insisted he had just stopped breathing when the paramedics got there. (Marino)
Other Celebs in Court:
JENNI "JWoww" FARLEY of "Jersey Shore" fame was in court yesterday, trying to keep nude photos of her off the internet.
Turns out she posed for her former boyfriend and former manager, TOM LIPPOLIS, even though she turned down Playboy magazine's $400,000 offer to pose nude.
Now, RadarOnline reports her former boyfriend has butt-nekkid shots of J-Woww before and after she had liposuction and a second pair of breast implants put in. According to RadarOnline's source, the before-and-after shows are VERY different.
Wasted away again in Margaritaville:
Warning: note sexual content:
A Denver man pulled into a Burger King drive-thru last night and told the employee to "handle his whopper." The employee looked down into the car seat and that's exactly what the driver was doing.
The guy drive off, the employee --a woman-- got the license number and police pulled over RICHARD TROUPE a short while later. He's 52.
Amazingly, alcohol was involved.
Editor's note: Looking to add our own secret sauce, are we?
--Coulda been worse. Coulda gone to Subway and ordered a footlong.
--This is what happens when you take a hot dog to a burger fight.
--Nice to see Brett Favre has found a way to keep busy in retirement. (Maiman)
