David Letterman Tribute to an Old Friend

Some things just stand alone. Like David Letterman’s wonderful recollection of his 38-year friendship with the late Robin Williams.

It started at LA’s Comedy Store. “We wanted to make people laugh,” said Letterman. And then Robin shows up “like a hurricane,” and soon left the others in the dust.

The tribute ends with a collection of clips of Robin’s appearances on David’s shows.

Wonderful and funny snippets from two parallel lives. 

Exactly the way that Robin should be remembered. Thanks, Dave – and thanks, Robin.

French Montana's Got His Rea$on$

French Montana’s a rapper, a record producer and a companion to Khloe Kardashian.

He recently told Billboard magazine he wanted to “capitalize” on Khloe’s fame. But then he told Access Hollywood Live that he’s very mad that the remark was taken out of context.

He was trying to say that he thought Khloe’s name should be spelled with all the big letters – you now, capitalized. (Okay, that part I made up.)

In the interview, he also talks about surviving a gunshot wound to the head.

There is absolutely no correlation between that event and his current choice of girlfriend.

Pay to Play?

According to some reports, the National Football league has made its top three choices for halftime entertainment at the 2015 Super Bowl: Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay.

And the league has reached out to each of them to ask if they’d be willing to pay for the privilege.

Typically, Super Bowl halftime performers don’t get paid, but the NFL picks up travel, accommodations and production charges.

This year, It appears that the NFL has run out of money – so they want the halftime entertainers to pony up some dinero.

Let’s see how far down the A-list they have to go before they find someone willing to pay.

Meanwhile, it’s making more and more sense to have someone like Weird Al Yankovic do the halftime entertainment. If the league’s going to be a joke, then why not the Super Bowl’s halftime show?

Baby Summer Rain...?

Christina Aguilera welcomed her daughter to the world over the weekend, and shared her name with the Twitterverse shortly afterward…
  Summer Rain (not to be confused with a feminine freshness product) was delivered by C-section, so that might put Christina’s Playboy plans on hold.

In case you missed it, a number of sources (which admittedly could simply have been the repeat of one source, because it is the internet, after all ) last week reported – just before Christina went into labor – that she planned to get into shape after the baby was born and then pose for Playboy magazine.

More nude than the pregnancy pictures that were all over the place the week before that. And that’s hard to imagine, really.

Charlie Sheen Goes Big & Green with the Ice Bucket Challenge

You never know what to expect with Charlie Sheen.

I mean, which one will show up? Good Charlie? Bad Charlie? Out-of-control Charlie? Well-behaved Charlie? Or a Charlie we haven’t yet met?

Well, when it comes to accepting and one-upping the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, it looks like Good Charlie stepped up to the plate.

Check out the video to see how perfectly he plays it.

And to show he’s still got his sense of humor, he calls out Jon Cryer,  his former co-star on Two & A Half Men, Chuck Lorre, one of the producers of the show, and Ashton Kutcher, who took his place on the show.
