Gerard in a Bottle

Gerard Depardieu - arguably, France's best and best-known actor - admitted recently that he drinks a wee bit.

"I can absorb 12, 13, 14 bottles" of wine "per day," he said. "But I’m never totally drunk.”

On the other hand, he's never totally sober. Or coherent. Or intelligible.

This is a guy who's had quintuple bypass surgery too.

And he's had some interesting brushes with infamy. Here he is last year on The Graham Norton Show on BBC, talking about making an unauthorized pit stop on a commercial airliner. If nothing else, he found a use for his empties...

Peyton's Pizza & Pot

Looks like those knocks on the noggin on the playing field haven't hurt Peyton Manning any.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated very recently, he pretty much admitted that he bought up a bunch of Papa John's pizza shops - 21 of them, to be precise - in Colorado just before the state legalized marijuana to profit on the sale of the weed.

TMZ reported last year that sales in those Peyton pizza palaces were bringing in some big bucks since legalization. One shop's sales increased a whopping 25 percent.

In the interview, Peyton talked about his business plan: "There’s some different laws out here in Colorado," he said. "Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes. So when you come to a different place, you’ve kind of got to learn everything that comes with it."

Smart cookie.

Wait, that's another franchise he should have bought up...

Geeks in Ectasy

JJ Abrams brought a smile to the faces of geeks everywhere with a very interesting mashup yesterday.

The director of the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII tweeted video that looks like it's the Millenium Falcon, complete with recognizable Star Wars music.

Then the music changes, and the camera moves slowly to focus on a piece of equipment hanging from the belly of the Falcon.

Wait? Is that the Batmobile? Why yes, yes I believe it is.
  If you're a geek, sit back, relax and enjoy - then grab a smoke when it's over.

The Man Owns New York

You don't have to be a Yankees fan to appreciate what Derek Jeter has done for the club, and arguably for baseball.

As he caps off his final month of playing the game, he's getting all sorts of accolades.

But none are better than the ones he gets from the people of his city, as he walks to the stadium through the streets of New York.

Sure, parts of it were staged for the cameras - this is still a Gatorade commercial (albeit, a subtle one) - but there's no faking the looks on the faces on the kids Jeter meets along the way.

Class act. Especially in the face of everything else going wrong in the world of sports today, it's nice to have a guy like Jeter out there. Bon voyage, Captain!

It's Really All About the Space

Meghan Trainor's "All About the Bass" is at the top of the charts these days.

So of course, it's going to get parodized. And who better to produce a parody than Deva Dalporto, the woman NBC calls the "Weird Al of YouTube Moms."

If you've got kids, or you know people who have kids, or you've been a kid, you're going to enjoy "All About the Space."

This Bling's Outta Control

Can you say, too much money?

On this week's season finale of America's Got Talent, host Nick Cannon was wearing a pair of shoes worth $2 million.

That's twice as much as the AGT winner, magician Mat Franco, earned that night.

According to Women's Wear Daily, the shoes had "14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold, with a total carat weight of 340 carats."

I'm sorry, but that just screams excess to me... unless of course your fairy godmother made them for you and you've got to have them back by midnight.

So Help Me Not!

The United States Air Force used to require airmen to say "so help me God" as part of their enlistment.

Then they had to make it optional - allowing airmen not to say that phrase, if they so choose.

Then the exception was lifted - no one's quite sure why. But when an airmen crossed the phrase out of his oath about a month ago, he was denied reenlstiment.

So a humanist organziation threatened to file suit, citing First Amendment violations.

And the Air Force reinstated the exception, and allowed the airman to reenlist with saying "so help me God."

So out of curiosity, what happens when this guy's F-16 stalls out at 40,000 feet. Will he pray to that deity that could not be named in his oath, or simply say "uh oh" as he plunges toward the Earth?

Iggy Azalea Suing Ex-Boyfriend Over Stolen Data

While in the middle of a sex tape controversy involving her ex-boyfriend Hefe Wine, "Fancy" rapper Iggy Azalea has filed a lawsuit against him. The complaint is not about the alleged sexual footage Wine wants to sell. Iggy claims her former lover/producer stole music off her computer.

According to TMZ, Iggy says Wine unlawfully downloaded material from her laptop in 2009 when the two were living together in Atlanta. Wine had threatened to release an EP of Iggy's previously recorded tracks that he states would "shock the world."

Iggy is suing Wine to prevent the EP from coming out on the grounds the project was created from the music stolen from her computer. Iggy also refutes she signed a contract with Wine that gave him permission to release her work. She calls the document a forgery.

The Island Records artist has also threatened to sue the porn company Vivid Entertainment over attempting to purchase and distribute her apparent sex tape with Wine. According to reports, Wine is still planning to release the footage.
