Last night was the last episode of 30 Rock. As expected, Ben & Jerry's announced a new, "30 Rock" inspired flavor during the finale. It isn't ice cream though, it's Greek frozen yogurt, and they made it lemon… after Tina Fey’s character, Liz Lemon. Ben & Jerry's describes it as: Quote, "A lemon Greek frozen yogurt with a blueberry lavender swirl." It'll be available this spring.

Whether Ashton Kutcher does a good job of playing Steve Jobs in the upcoming movie "Jobs" or not, he sure looks the part. Ashton posted a picture of half of Jobs face matched up with the other half of HIS face made up as Jobs. And the resemblance is pretty striking. (--Check it out here. That's Ashton on the left. We think. The movie comes out April 19th.) (Twitter)
Beyonce had a press conference yesterday about her Super Bowl performance… and she started it off by singing the national anthem LIVE…yep to prove that she could. Big in your face moment. She also admitted that she used a backing track at the inauguration…quote, "Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound-check I did not feel comfortable taking a risk so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry and I'm very proud of my performance." But she said she'll be singing live at the Super Bowl. One thing Beyoncé wouldn't do was admit that her halftime show will include a Destiny’s Child reunion.
Football legend Dan Marino added something else to his legacy a few years back -- a love child. The quarterback-turned-analyst started an affair with a CBS production assistant shortly after signing on in 2003, and she wound up having their baby in 2005. Marino told the New York Post yesterday -- which was his 28th wedding anniversary -- "This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then. We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved.” Marino is scheduled to work the Super Bowl pre-game show this Sunday with Boomer Esiason and Shannon Sharpe.
Don’t know if you got the chance to see American Idol last night…it was an interesting night to say the least. Steven Tyler showed up to the Oklahoma City auditions…in drag…as a woman named Pepper. Steven was wearing a blonde wig, a snakeskin miniskirt, and fake breasts that honked when they were squeezed. He didn't actually SING…but he did drop some of his trademark nonsense. He said, quote, "I'm gonna judge your ass first. The roosters may crow, but the hens deliver the goods."
Steven Tyler - Surprise Oklahoma City Audition... by IdolxMuzic
There was also a girl named Zoanette Johnson who auditioned. She did a weird and wailing rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” that had Keith Urban falling out of his chair. She followed with a patriotic rant and told the judges to hurry up in sending her to Hollywood. They did.
The first part of Dr. Phil’s interview with Manti Te’O hoaxer Ranaiah Tuiasosopo aired yesterday…and in it, Ronaiah admitted he had "romantic feelings" for Manti, but he basically referred to himself as a "recovering homosexual." Dr. Phil also tried to get Ronaiah to demonstrate the female voice he used for "Lennay," but we won't know if he actually does it until Part Two, which airs TODAY.
Sinead O’Connor was strange back in the day…and she's still strange. Sinead's version of PRINCE'S "Nothing Compares 2 U" may have launched her career…but she says she and Prince CAN'T STAND each other, and it even came to BLOWS. It's an AWESOME story…but unfortunately she can't tell it. "I'm not going to go into it, but we detest each other…it got violent too, which is why I can't go into it, but it's a very funny story. I'll tell it when I'm an old lady and I write my book."
She also claims she once chased down Roger Waters of Pink Floyd so she could beat the crap out of him…but that story is weak on details, too. Apparently, he once somehow "tricked her" into lip-synching onstage.
Keith Urban is so attached to his wife Nicole Kidman…that he actually cries when they're apart. Especially when he sees what she's wearing on TV. It happened Sunday when Nicole was at the SAG Awards and Keith was in Australia. He said, quote, "I got to the house, flicked on the TV and I got to see my wife. I got to see what she was wearing. "I hit pause on one shot and stood there staring at her…and started crying. I hated the fact she was there without me, on her own. Ridiculous, right?"
Randy Travis is paying the price for his drunk, naked arrest last summer. A Texas judged sentenced him to 180 days in jail, but the sentence was "probated" for two years, which means he can avoid jail if he stays out of trouble for two years. Randy will have to check into an inpatient alcohol treatment facility for a minimum of 30 days…and he'll have to complete 100 hours of community service.--And just to make sure the roads are safe, Randy has to install one of those "ignition interlock devices" on any vehicle he'll be driving for the next two years. That's the contraption that measures your blood alcohol level and keeps the engine from starting if you're over the limit.
Ever the fashion icon, Snooki went into the delivery room wearing a leopard print birthing gown. She’s not stopping there. Snooki has promised when she and Jionni LaValle finally walk down the aisle her bridesmaids will be wearing leopard print gowns. Naturally, she’ll be in white because Snooki oozes virginal innocence.
Snooki says she won’t play favorites and will invite the entire Jersey Shore cast to her wedding. Jwoww will certainly be there, and Pauly will work as the DJ. Snooki added that her little boy, four-month-old Lorenzo will probably be walking by the time she marries. You can picture him now as the ring bearer.
