HOT TOPICS RUNDOWN: February 2nd, 2018


Super Bowl 2018 Tea!

The Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles (never won a Super Bowl) against the New England Patriots is on this Sunday and Justin Timberlake will be performing the halftime show. The Parents Television Council sent Justin a letter warning him to keep his act clean this time around. As a precaution, there will be a five second delay, which is two seconds less than what The Wendy Show has! Good luck Justin!

Speaking of football, Carrie Underwood has teamed up with Ludacris for the Super Bowl theme song this year! The song is called “The Champion,” and it will also be used for the Olympics. We haven’t seen Carrie since her fall in November. She broke her wrist, and had to get 40 stitches in her face, and has shared that she looks different. Meanwhile, her husband Mike Fisher just announced he is coming out of retirement and returning to hockey. Fisher has been home taking care of their three year-old son as Carrie recuperates.

Carrie is happy her husband is going back to work, but Gisele Bündchen is hoping her husband Tom Brady retires! This will be Brady’s eighth Super Bowl. Gisele wants him to retire and is reportedly asking Tom’s friends to help. She’s allegedly already asked one of his retired football friends to convince him to walk away from football.

No Selfies for Mariah!

Wendy said the other day that she doesn’t like taking selfies with fans. It turns out, she’s not the only one! Mariah Carey has strict rules for her selfies. She supposedly won’t let her fans take their own photos, and has her own photographer with her at all times to snap the pictures instead! Allegedly, if Mariah approves of the photo, she has her team email it to the fan! She also makes her assistant check her hair and makeup before the photo is taken.

Kathy Griffin’s Life After Being Blacklisted

A post shared by Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) on

Kathy Griffin is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter. It asks the question, “Can a comic in exile come back?” The infamous Trump photo was shared on May 30, 2017. Kathy told THR, “I didn’t rape anybody. I didn’t assault anybody. I didn’t get a DUI. I mean, there are celebs that kill people!” Her own 97 year old mom said she was wrong. Kathy went on an international tour in October that was a huge success! Places included New Zealand, Australia, Singapore and Europe. They all knew her from the Trump picture! She spent New Year’s Eve at home, and ended up watching CNN after people tweeted her. Now, Griffin spends her days writing material. “The minute I do something that makes money, they will all love me again!”
