CBS and Yahoo! have announced that they will partner together to bring 60 Minutes video content and "robust news packages" to Yahoo!’s media properties. Each week after the show airs, the microsite will get two news packages, one an expanded version of a segment from the show, the second will be based on a "topical news theme." There will also be never-before-seen 60 Minutes video footage, as well as interactive elements including maps, a reporter’s notebook, blogs and photo galleries. In other words, you’ve got a lot of things to explain to your grandmother.
Is Clerks director Kevin Smith considering a second career in gossip? During a speech at a school, he reportedly spilled the beans on his sidekick Jason Mewes (Jay of Jay and Silent Bob) and Mewes’ one minute stand with Nicole Richie. According to Smith, Richie followed Mewes into a bathroom at a club one night and made a man of him in 30 seconds. Why would Nicole Richie indulge in a quickie with the minor celebrity? Here’s a hint: it’s called Bottoms Up and it’s a romantic comedy starring Paris Hilton and Jason Mewes set for release later this year. Maybe jealous Richie wanted to introduce Mewes to her bottom first. Too bad Hilton’s version won’t be as quick.

Last night, we had to say goodbye to one of our favorite characters on television. The beloved Chef. I’ll give you a moment to collect yourselves.
In case you missed it, The Rooftop Report has most of the show up right now. Go watch it, before Tom Cruise demands they take it down.
What’d you guys think of the episode? Was it an appropriate send off for the man, the myth, the legend… the Chef? I sure hope so.
If your trying out to be a contestant on Survivor, be prepared to answer questions about your physical agility, your problem solving aptitude and your background in world travel. But according to Survivor: Guatemala winner Danni Boatwright, to get cast on the show, it all comes down to three tough questions:
- Would you take your top off for peanut butter?
- Who is the most famous person you’ve slept with?
- If you’re conservative and Republican, do you hate Jews?
We’re not sure how Boatwright answered the first two questions, but we do know the Kansas native defended her conservative principles by saying some of her best friends are Jews. I have a hunch some of her best friends are also peanut butter.
Now that everyone is love with Snakes on a Plane (even though it doesn’t come out until August), the movie seems like a no-brainer. But when it was first conceived, there were concerns about, wait for it, the title. According to Reuters, people at New Line thought the movie was "nothing but a simple programmer with a ‘stupid title.’" But once Samuel L. Jackson got attached, they got more enthusiastic about the movie and changed the name to Pacific Air Flight 121 for "casting purposes." One agent said at the time, "Who wants to be in a movie called Snakes on a Plane?" Jackson, apparently, who now says, "That’s the only reason I took the job: I read the title…You either want to see that, or you don’t." Well, I do, and I wouldn’t have if it weren’t for the title. Also, if it weren’t for the title, there wouldn’t have been this kick-ass logo!
Forget Grand Theft Auto, forget O.J. (if you haven’t already)–CNN.com has the hands down best car chase ever. Go to their site and click on "car chase threads the needle" to watch what happens when you combine a four wheel drive with some one who really, really doesn’t want to be caught. If anyone knows what this guy did that’s so bad it’s worth hoofing it, drop us a line in the comments section. And if anyone knows what kind of bionic super-truck he was driving, alert the car company. That footage alone is worth a CLIO or two.
Last week Eva Longoria claimed she gives her boyfriend NBA star Tony Parker lessons on how to have sex. "I’m the experienced one. I’m the teacher, especially about love." But now the Desperate Housewives actress claims "when the lights go out, he’s the sex teacher." So let me get this straight Eva, you’re saying when the lights are on you’re the sex teacher and with the lights off he’s the sex teacher? So you have different sex teacher shifts? So who subs for you on sick days, the gym teacher?
