Question of the Day:  When I was a kid I was a SUPER picky eater.  Still to this day, there are some things that I'll turn my nose up to - but I'm not NEARLY as bad as I was as a young "Brockie" as my Grandparents used to call me.  Now comes payback.  I can name the things my son will eat using the fingers on ONE hand.  (Pepperoni slices, string cheese, Gogurt, chicken nuggets & chocolate milk).  And so I'm trying to force myself to eat stuff that I've never been able to stand so he sees that I'm not a picky eater (yeah, right).  Today's question:  What's one food that you've given a fair chance but just can't stand?  Me?  I've never been a fan of tomatoes.  I can do ketchup and salsa all day long, but a sliced tomato on my cheeseburger or sandwich?  Not gonna happen!(Broc) JOIN THE CONVERSATION ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE!



Numerous allegations of harassment and assault have landed the new Kevin Spacey flick a big red mark through its title “All The Money In The World.”  The film was pulled from the AFI Film Festival in Los Angeles, where it was set to debut on November 16th.   In a statement yesterday, TriStar, which is part of Sony, issued a statement saying it was being pulled from the festival because of the "current allegations surrounding one of its actors" — meaning Spacey.  While its being pulled from next week’s festival, Sony Pictures says the film will still arrive in theaters as planned on Dec. 22.

The Weinstein drama gets more and more disturbing as investigations continue to unearth damning evidence against the movie mogul - and now, The New Yorker has released a report that says Harvey Weinstein employed private investigators to spy on his accusers and keep tabs on reporters investigating his past.  According to the report, Weinstein hired Black Cube, a firm run by former Mossad agents, to collect information on Rose McGowan, who is a driving force in the accusations against Weinstein. The firm employed undercover agents, one of whom posed as a women’s rights activist, to meet with McGowan and obtain information on her forthcoming book, the story states.  In a statement to the New Yorker, Weinstein spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister accused the publication of trafficking in “inaccuracies and wild conspiracy theories.”

Patton Oswalt is once again a happily married man!  Over the weekend, the comedian wed Meredith Salenger in an intimate ceremony at the Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles. And the couple are certainly on cloud nine as they can't stop sharing photos from their special day.  Patton was dealt a devastating tragedy when his first wife, Michelle McNamara, died unexpectedly in her sleep in April 2016.  As it's believed that the two were introduced by mutual friend Martha Plimpton, it only makes sense that The Goonies actress officiated the ceremony.
