Dolly Parton was awarded $100 million as the recipient of Jeff Bezos’ 2022 Courage and Civility Award.  The money will be donated to organizations of her choice.  She said, “I try to put my money where my heart is and will do good things with this.” You might remember that Dolly donated $1 million to fund research to develop a cure for COVID-19. Here are some of the amazing things Dolly has done.

Gisele Bundchen bought a house right near Tom Brady.  So they’ll now live in the same neighborhood but probably hardly see each other.  Just like when they were married. So at least they don’t have to drop the kids off at McDonalds, or the gas station…

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ topped the box office this weekend with $180 million.  That’s a record for November, and the second biggest opening of the year behind “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, which opened with $187.4 million

Can’t get enough sports on TV? I now bring you POWER SLAPPING.  UFC guru Dana White is bringing the Power Slap League to TBS, in January. Two people stand toe-to-toe and take turns slapping the living crap out of each other, until someone gets knocked out. If it doesn’t happen, there’s a point system after a certain number of rounds. Scoring is based on a slapper’s effectiveness, along with the defender’s reaction and recovery time. Next up: professional eye-poking! (Seriously – nothing would surprise me…)

Here’s a big surprise: Morrissey walked off stage during his show on Saturday after five songs.  If you know anything about Morrissey, this isn’t surprising.  It was allegedly too cold in Los Angeles, even though it was in the 50s.  To top it all off, he started the show 30 minutes late.

Prop comic Gallagher died Friday, he was 76.  Gallagher was best known for smashing watermelons (and other things) with his big old sledgehammer, the Sledge-O-Matic. Gallagher died of organ failure. He had been ill for a while, and had several heart attacks over the years.

That’s a wrap!
