Morgan Freeman has been doing a lot of press recently for CBS’s Madame Secretary (he is a producer on it) and Lucy, so he has been missing out on some much needed sleep. Today, he woke up early to be on Good Morning America, but he was still a little drowsy. So while he waited for his segment he took a cat nap. Although, that looks like more than just a cat nap. I wish I could sleep as deep as him.
So did he do what he did last year, and sleep through his interview? Nope, someone at GMA was given the sh!tty assignment of waking him up. I would’ve hated to do that because he looks so comfortable. Plus, I’d love to find out how sexy his snoring sounds. With his voice, you know it has to be the sexiest snore ever!
I take back what I said about wishing I could sleep as deeply as he does, because now I know what my cure will be. It will be going to see Lucy. Doesn’t that film look like a real snoozefest?
Rachel McAdams was on Today today and Matt Lauer showed the actress her audition tape from when she tried out for The Notebook over a decade ago. She cringed the whole time as she watched it and I don’t know why. I think it’s obvious after watching it, why they cast her in the role. She was perfect for it.
As awesome as that part of the interview was, I really enjoyed learning that The Notebook made Matt Lauer and Al Roker cry. Wusses.

The Weather Channel sent Julie Marin to teach us how to break into a car on a hot day when you see a baby or a pet that was left inside. First, she used a tire iron to try to break the window and after 19 times it remained intact. So the two firefighters gave her a halligan and after only 9 times she finally achieved her goal. Then it was time to get the baby out and the way she held the doll, it was better left inside.
Granted if I tried nearly 30 times to break a window on live television and couldn’t do it, I too would grab that freaking baby out of the stupid car like that. *&*^ $#!t
Today on Today Matt Lauer took the ice bucket challenge that was given to him by golfer Greg Norman, which basically is him having a bucket of ice poured on his head. While most people would react to the challenge by falling to the ground shivering like a scared baby bear, he stood there as though nothing happened when it was over. So does this prove that is heart is made out of ice like we’ve been suspecting, and that is why he didn’t react? Or maybe it was just him trying to show how cool he really is? What do you think? While the video shows us one story, the below pictures kind of show another.
Now when it comes to the challenge, Greg Norman told him, his options were to accept the challenge and ask three other friends to do it also or donate $100 to charity. Not only did he have the ice ice baby rain down on him, he also donated the money to Hospice of Palm Beach County. So who are his three “friends” that he dared to take on the challenge? They are Howard Stern, Martha Stewart and Brian Williams. I think the only one who will suffer the same fate as him will be Brian Williams. Who else do you think will pretend that they are the winning coach at the Super Bowl just like the news anchor?
Joan Rivers was being interviewed by CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield, and the comedian wasn’t happy with it, so she got up and walked out.Rivers has made a career making fun of people, but if you call her on that, it seems like she will get up and walk away.
When Fredricka asked her about being mean on Fashion Police, Rivers said she’s making fun of their clothes and not the person in them. Then Joan explained, the celebrities whose threads she goes off on are in a different bracket and don’t care what she says because they make millions of dollars.
When that line of questioning wasn’t working out, the anchor took it in a different direction. She then asked Joan about the fur coat she’s wearing on the cover of her new book. Joan responded by calling the host a hypocrite because she’s wearing leather shoes. Which I think was Joan deferring from that line of questioning.
Finally when Whitfield asked her about hearing those type of comments at press conferences, Joan had enough, got up and walked away from what she considered a negative interview.
And here, I was thinking she was in one of those brackets of the people’s who clothes she makes fun of. So shouldn’t she just sit there, grin and bear it? I mean, she is so quick dish it, and even quicker not to take it. Which I personally find very hypocritical.
Now, when it comes to Whitfield, how annoying was her fake smile and laugh throughout the whole interview. Maybe Joan was correct about her not being the right person to interview someone who does “humor” for a living.
David Muir posed for a photo with Ginger Zee today on Good Morning America and all I could focus on was the positioning of his handheld mic. Seriously, is it just me or does it look like he is really excited about his new job as Diane Sawyer’s replacement on World News? And the expression on his face (when I stopped looking at his microphone) convinced me even more. Please, tell me I am not alone.
We all know most celebrities love press and will do anything to get it. I guess Erykah Badu wanted some, so she went as far are interrupting WPIX’s Mario Diaz’s liveshot. She didn’t say anything, instead she flashed the cameras, did a sexual gesture with her hands and then tried to kiss him. When he refused her advances, she gave up.
What was he reporting on? He was going live about Shia LaBeouf. So little did he know it, he was doing two entertainment stories for the price of one.
Shortly after the news broadcast the singer Tweeted her apologies to the reporter. He accepted her apology and said the next time they meet, he won’t do the “NYC push back.” Although can you blame him for doing it in the first place. I mean, without knowing it was her, I would’ve just thought it was a fan of Pharrell’s trying to get some attention. Instead, it was a celebrity, who has a hat like his, trying to get some attention. And you know what? It worked!
WXII’s Chris Lea was going live from a high school in East Bend, NC, where some of the cheerleaders were having a touch toe competition. Well, the traffic reporter decided to challenge one of the girls to see who could do a better touch toe. Even though his co-reporter warned him not to split his pants, he still decided to do it. So he jumped up in the air, legs apart and then you heard it. His pants ripped open from crotch to crack and thankfully he had underwear on. Who am I kidding, it would’ve been even better if he wasn’t wearing and his handheld mic made an appearance.
Back back to the split, his reaction to his pants being ripped open was classic! And that is why we love this liveshot so much.
And let’s be real, we are all also tipping out hats to him because he did a way better touch toe than the cheerleader.
The first trailer is out for Dumb and Dumber To and Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels are promoting it like crazy. Last night they debuted it on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and today they talked about it on Today. To mark the occasion, Matt Lauer dressed up as Harry Dunne. And I think that is the dumbest he has ever looked. That says a lot because he dressed up as a Baywatch Babe this Halloween.
Now, the one thing that is far from being the dumbest is the highlarious trailer for the sequel that is coming out in November. I snorted twice while watching it because it is so freaking awesome.
So two journalists in Jordan were debating about the Syrian war and they got into a very heated argument. Unlike here in America where they just use their words, Shaker al-Johari and Mohammad al-Jayousi used the desk that was between them. That’s right they picked it up and were pushing at each other until top and bottom part got separated. Then they used the top of it as a shield/fighting device until the producers sadly came in and broke it up. Proving even in Jordan, they get their desks at Ikea.
But being serious for second, now that CNN brought back Crossfire, they should get their people to fight on air like these two men. I bet their ratings would go up faster than that desktop!
