The Phoenix Mayor?

Here’s something none of us ever thought we’d hear. According to The Washington Post, Rob Ford, the embattled and admittedly addicted mayor of Toronto, has a decent chance of being reelected.

Let’s recap. Rob Ford has admitted to abusing drugs and alcohol. He’s been at times completely out of control while in office. He’s checked himself into rehab, emerging just a couple of months ago to pick up his campaign where he left off.

Back in June, 63% of the people in Toronto wanted him to resign. That number has dropped to about 50% - still a lot of people! – but according to the poll numbers, Ford is now just three percentage points away from the front runner.

Statistically, that’s dead even.

Amazing how he seems to be rising out of the ashes of his self-destruction.

Beyonce's Jedi Mind Trick?

Mathew Knowles, father of Beyonce and Solange, the famous feuding siblings, says everything that’s happened with and between his daughters this summer is nothing more than a Jedi mind trick.

During an interview yesterday, PapaBey was asked about the infamous elevator fight, and about the rumors of the possible royal split of Queen Bey and Jay Z.

“Everybody’s talking about it,” he said. And sales for the On The Run Tour went up, plus Solange’s album sales increased by 200%.

All because of the Jedi mind trick.

In case you don’t know your Star Wars lore, PapaBey’s suggesting that his kids have taken over our minds, and fooled us into doing exactly what they want.

“These are not the droids we’re looking for” after all…

Doctor Doom Leaked!

Sci-fi geeks are burning up Twitter and other social media platforms with pictures of the new Doctor Doom from the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four.
Couple of questions here:
  1. Does the original Fantastic Four merit a do-over? I think not.
  2. Isn’t Doctor Doom a super villain? So why does he look like a cross between Dorothy’s Tin Man and Sir Alec Guinness’s Obi Wan Kenobi?
Take a look – maybe you’ll see something I’m missing.

Peyton Manning: Vicious Taunter?

The National Football League yesterday announced that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was being fined $8200 for taunting Houston Texans’ safety DJ Swearinger during a pre-season game.

Swearinger had been flagged for tackling Wes Welker, who ended up getting a concussion on the play.

Manning got in Swearinger’s face mask and dropped an F-bomb.

Boom. $8200. Manning says he won’t appeal the ruling.

He even called it “money well spent” according to one source.

Those aren’t pads on Manning’s shoulders. Those are major-league chips!

Near Water Much?

Both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the United States are being pounded by heavy surf caused by tropical storms.

To the east, Hurricane Cristobal. To the west, Tropical Storm Marie.

Both are causing much larger waves than normal, to the delight and peril of surfers and body-boarders.

Check out this video showing a large group of people on the California coast, iPhones and cameras held over their heads to capture the ocean’s fury.

And watch what happens when the ocean catches them with their pants down.

Friends Reunion, Sort Of

A lot of fans of Friends have been pining for a reunion show.

This week, Jimmy Kimmel made that wish come true – well, halfway anyway.

A huge fan of the show, Jimmy wrote some fan fiction, casting himself as Ross, and somehow convincing Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to perform it with him on an exact replica of the kitchen set.

It’s fun to see the ladies together – too bad the skit wasn’t a bit funnier…

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 8/29/2014

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Got Married But Her Dad Wasn't There

BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE pulled a fast one on the media and pretty much EVERYONE by getting married last Saturday in France. Their rep made the announcement yesterday.

It's amazing that they were able to keep it under wraps . . . especially considering how obsessed the media is with their status . . . so now everyone is playing catch-up. Here's what we know:

It happened at an estate Brad and Angelina own in Correns, France, which is probably the main reason they were able to keep it so secret. And it was a short "nondenominational civil ceremony conducted by a California judge."

There were only about 22 friends and family members there . . . although Angelina's father JON VOIGHT was NOT there. He gets to see the kids from time to time, but he's been trying to be a bigger part of Angelina's life. Clearly that's not working out.

He only found out yesterday after the news hit the Internet. He said, "It seems like it was very nice . . . and with all of the kids involved, it must have been a lot of fun and very beautiful. I'm happy for them."

He told a British tabloid that he's on his way to Europe to spend time with Angelina, Brad and the kids. As for missing the wedding, he chalked it up to a timing issue, since he had to be in the States for Monday's "Emmys".

Brad and Angelina read handwritten vows, and all six of their kids were involved in the ceremony. Angelina walked down the aisle with Maddox and Pax, Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.

Angelina wore a plain white floor-length antique lace and silk wedding dress with a veil . . . Brad wore a cream linen suit . . . the boys wore matching cream suits . . . and apparently the girls each had a dress made to match their individual style.

Brad and Angelina got engaged in 2012. This is Brad's second marriage, obviously. He married Jennifer Aniston in 2000, then dumped her in 2005 for Angelina.

This is Angelina's THIRD marriage. She was married to Jonny Lee Miller from "Elementary" from 1996 to 1999 . . . and then to Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003. So this is her first marriage to someone who only goes by two names.

It doesn't sound like they'll enjoy much of a honeymoon . . . apparently they've gone right to work on "By the Sea", the movie they're doing together in Malta.

Britney Spears is Single Again . . . Did She Catch Her Boyfriend Cheating?

BRITNEY SPEARS and her boyfriend David Lucado have broken up after a year and a half together. Last night, Britney Tweeted, quote, "Ahhhh the single life!"

Sources say Britney dumped David after a video surfaced showing him dancing and making out with another woman in somebody's living room. It was reportedly shot earlier this month.

David actually has a rep for some reason, and when he was contacted, he said, quote, "David is very, very in love with Britney. This is unfortunate and he hopes that it all works out."

As for Britney, a source says, quote, "She is heartbroken. But she will get through it. She's a strong girl and he was never right for her."

Joan Rivers is in Critical Condition After She Stopped Breathing During Surgery on Her Vocal Cords

JOAN RIVERS is in critical but stable condition at a New York City hospital after she stopped breathing during surgery on her vocal cords, and went into cardiac arrest.

It happened at an outpatient clinic while doctors were putting a scope down her throat. She was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital.

She was sedated at the time, and it's not clear what drugs were used. Now she's been placed in a medically-induced coma, and they're going to take her out of it this weekend to assess the damage.

Her daughter MELISSA issued a statement saying, quote, "I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers."

Joan had just performed in New York the night before, and witnesses say she didn't show signs of any health problems . . . although she did joke about her age.

She said, quote, "I'm 81 . . . I could go at any moment. I could fall over right here and you all could say, 'I was there!'"

Blake Lively Got Attacked by Bees the Day Before Her Birthday

BLAKE LIVELY turned 27 on Monday, and she celebrated by nursing MULTIPLE BEE STINGS. Blake got SWARMED during a photo shoot on Sunday, and wrote about it on her website.

She said, quote, "I felt an electric shock of energy . . . was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? [My butt] hurt like hell . . . then my neck, back, legs and forehead.

"And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting."

"Now, I was a Monty Python sketch; running at top speed in no particular direction, whipping my arms and hands around like I'd just discovered they were growing out of my shoulders without my previous knowledge . . .

"I was shaken. I was swollen. I had to stop what I was doing to recuperate and / or shrink."

Mathew Knowles Says the Beyonce / Jay Z Divorce Rumors Were a "Jedi Mind Trick" to Drum Up Interest in Their Tour

Divorce rumors have been dogging BEYONCÉ and JAY Z for months now . . . but maybe that's EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANTED.

In a radio interview yesterday, Beyoncé's dad MATHEW KNOWLES said they CREATED those rumors to drum up interest in their tour. And even Jay's elevator fight with SOLANGE was faked.

He said, quote, "I know [it was fake], because we've done this. From experience, there's a tour going on. So you sometimes have to ignite that tour. It's called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot."

"Everyone's talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange's album sales went up 200%."

A source says, quote, "Queen Latifah simply loves Lenny. Not only is he handsome, but she likes his inner peace and what he stands for as a man."

Lenny hasn't confirmed whether or not he's interested.

Jennifer Aniston is Tired of Being Hounded About Having Kids

JENNIFER ANISTON might want to have kids someday but she definitely wants people to stop HOUNDING HER ABOUT IT.

Jen tells NBC that people pressure her to become a mother. "It's always such an issue of, 'Are you married yet? Do you have your babies yet?' It's constant. I don't know. I don't have this checklist of things that have to be done and if they're not checked I've failed some part of my feminism or being a woman or my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child. I've birthed a lot of things and I feel I've mothered many things. I don't think it's fair to put that pressure on people."

So there. Leave Jen alone.

Chelsea Gets a Wet Send-Off

Among Chelsea Handler’s funniest moments on Chelsea Lately were her famous shower scenes with celebrities like Sandra Bullock and Conan O’Brien.

To get in the spirit, the celebrities would get naked and pixelated with Chelsea, in some flat-out hilarious scenes.

In her farewell to the E! Network, Chelsea was joined in the shower by a fully-clothed and shower-capped Ellen DeGeneres.

And honestly, it’s one of the most hilarious five minutes on TV in a long time – and a great way to retire the bit. Unless of course it happens to come up again in Chelsea’s new Netflix show.

Does it border on brilliant? You know what? I’m going to go ahead and say yes it does!

Check it out – but be warned! It might be a little NSFW.
