Jason Biggs’ Wife Hired a Hooker for Him for His Birthday, but it Turned Into a “Comedy of Errors”
JASON BIGGS was on “The View” yesterday talking about the time his wife hired a hooker for his birthday. It didn’t turn out like he’d planned. He said, quote, “Let’s just say I didn’t complete the mission. My wife found the whole thing to be quite hysterical even while it was happening. She was actually on the bed, watching, eating a bag of chips, laughing. So as you can imagine, I wasn’t really performing to the best of my abilities.”
J-Lo’s Mom Doesn’t Want Her Back Together With Marc Anthony
JENNIFER LOPEZ’S mom made it painfully obvious on “The Wendy Williams Show” yesterday that she does NOT want her daughter to get back together with ex-husband MARC ANTHONY.
Mom was in the audience when Wendy told J-Lo, quote, “In my mind, you’ll get back with Marc.” But when the camera panned to Mom, she was shaking her head and mouthing the word “nope.”
But J-Lo said she and Marc are the best of friends, and committed to raising their kids. And when Wendy described him as, quote, “devastatingly hot,” J-Lo’s mom seemed to agree. (Here’s video. Skip to the 7:36 mark.)

Ben & Jerry’s Has Two New Flavors Based on “Saturday Night Live”
HIGHLIGHTS: The upcoming season of “Saturday Night
Live” will be its 40th . . . and Ben & Jerry’s is marking the occasion with two new flavors based on “SNL” skits.

“Jersey Boys” and “Think Like a Man Too” Are in Theaters
Clint Eastwood directs this movie about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, which was adapted from the Broadway musical. It stars John Lloyd Young. He’s the guy who won a Tony award for playing Frankie Valli in the Broadway version.
Christopher Walken is also in it as a local mobster.
Until the Beatles came along, the Four Seasons were one of the most popular bands of the ’60s. Some of their #1 hits include “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, and “Walk Like a Man”. You’d also know their 1975 hit “December 1963 (Oh What a Night)”.
This is the sequel to that 2012 comedy which was based on Steve Harvey’s book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man”. In this one, more relationship chaos ensues when the couples hit Las Vegas for the wedding of Regina Hall and Terrence J’s characters.
The other ladies are Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good, and Gabrielle Union. . . and the rest of the men include Kevin Hart and “Almost Human’s” Michael Ealy.
Liam Neeson plays a writer using Olivia Wilde as his inspiration, while Kim Basinger waits for him back home. His story is somehow interconnected with two other love stories . . . with Adrien Brody falling for a beautiful Italian woman in Rome . . . and with Mila Kunis trying to regain custody of her son with the help of James Franco.

It’s Official: Harrison Ford Has a Broken Leg

Harrison’s rep says, quote, “[His] left leg was broken in an accident. His surgery was successful, and he’ll begin rehab shortly. He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work.”
The rep didn’t say how long Harrison would be sidelined, but earlier this week we heard it would probably be about eight weeks. That would make sense . . . but then again, that report said he had a broken ANKLE.

Your Headphones Tie Into At Least 11 Knots When You Put Them in Your Bag . . . Here’s Why
The average pair of headphones tangles into 11 knots when you put them away. And physicists in California know why: Headphone cords NATURALLY coil into loops . . . the cords are long and have three loose ends . . . and when any loose end enters a loop, it makes a knot. So, it’s not your fault.

If you think thongs and G-strings cover you up too much . . . check out the C-STRING. It’s a new type of underwear that covers you in the front, loops between your legs, and covers a little of your crack. There’s no waistband . . . it holds itself in place thanks to the wire inside.

A guy in Georgia was trying to put his gun in its holster last week, and accidentally shot himself in the process. The bullet went into his JUNK . . . passed through . . . and exited out of his buttocks. He went to the hospital for treatment, but here’s no word on his condition.
A Bunch of White Politicians Accidentally Passed a Bill For Slavery Reparations . . . Because They Didn’t Bother Reading It or Listening to It
A bunch of white county commissioners in Dallas County, Texas accidentally passed a bill calling for SLAVERY REPARATIONS on Tuesday . . . because no one bothered to read it or even listen as it was read out loud.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse is 25. MCLOVIN in “Superbad”. Somehow, he’s gone on to have parts in other movies since then, like “Role Models” and “Kick Ass”.

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is 36. Former UFC light heavyweight champ. He took a hiatus from MMA fighting to play B.A. Baracus in the disappointing “A-Team” movie. I pity the fool who bastardized that role by casting Rampage Jackson.
(He recently had a pretty boring unanimous decision victory over King Mo in the Bellator MMA organization. He should probably hang it up now.)

John Taylor is 54. Duran Duran’s bassist. He grew up a huge nerd: He had thick glasses as he was almost legally blind and he loved painting models of soldiers. Then he decided to become a rock star, got contacts and became the “good looking” one of Duran Duran.
Koko B. Ware is 57. WWF superstar from the ’80s! He’d bring a bird with him to the ring. At age 57, he’s shattered the life expectancy of a professional wrestler.
MICHAEL ANTHONY is 60. Van Halen bassist whom the Van Halen brothers have vowed NEVER TO WORK WITH AGAIN.
(They’re basically ticked at him because he continues to work with Sammy Hagar . . . and they hate Sammy. Very mature.)
John Goodman is 62. Chubby superstar of movies and television. He’s a cult hero to a whole new generation because of his iconic role as Walter Sobchak in “The Big Lebowski”.
LIONEL RICHIE! is 65. There’s no karamu like the one Lionel Richie deserves to have on his birthday. NOTHING can compare.
Alan Longmuir is 66. Bassist for the Bay City Rollers! S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y night!

John Mahoney is 74. Frasier’s dad on ”Frasier”, and the father of the chick John Cusack is in love with in “Say Anything”. He was born in Blackpool, England, but moved to the U.S. as a teenager . . . and says he got rid of his horrible northern English accent while he was in the U.S. Army.
Danny Aiello is 81. His famous line in “The Godfather Part II” . . . where he says “Michael Corleone says hello!” during a hit . . . was ad-libbed.
Olympia Dukakis is 83. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Cher’s mom in “Moonstruck” . . . which, coincidentally, also starred John Mahoney and Danny Aiello.
Martin Landau is 86. In 1995, he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for playing Bela Lugosi in “Ed Wood”. He won an Emmy in 2007 for his guest role as a washed-up Hollywood producer in “Entourage”. Is that something you might be interested in?
