Stephen Colbert roasts the Democratic candidates with Baby Yoda burns

The Democratic presidential candidates might be trying their best, but they've got some serious competition.

And we're not talking about Donald Trump.

"There's one candidate who's exploding on social media: Baby Yoda," says Stephen Colbert in the clip above, before explaining that The Mandalorian character is getting nearly double the social media interactions of any 2020 Democratic candidate. "Sad sign of our misplaced priorities, this is."

Colbert went on to explain why this was particularly bad news for Michael Bloomberg, with his late bid clearly being overshadowed by everyone's new favorite Star Wars character.

"Sorry, Mike," says Colbert. "I guess voters were interested in a different tiny, wrinkled money-maker."

Justin’s costly secret ‘love contract’

As speculation swirls over how close Justin Timberlake is to actress Alisha Wainwright, his co-star in the upcoming film Palmer, fans are obsessing over his pre-nuptial agreement with wife Jessica Biel that would cost the boy-band singer half a million dollars if he strays.

After Timberlake and Biel tied the knot in 2012, the New York Daily News reported that they signed a contract specifying how they would divide their property if they ever divorced and holding Timberlake financially liable if he were unfaithful. Timberlake’s net worth topped $US200 million ($A292 million) as of 2019.

The infidelity provision is a common feature of so-called lifestyle clauses, also known as “love contracts”, in prenuptial agreements that cover everything from frequency of sex to body weight requirements.

“Reports of the Timberlake-Biel prenup infidelity clause in 2012 began a trend in so-called ‘lifestyle’ clauses within prenups, postnups and cohabitation agreements,” asset-protection lawyer Ann-Margaret Carrozza told FOX. “These clauses can deal with items of concern such as substance abuse, infidelity, weight gain, spending” and more, she said.

In Timberlake’s case, the 38-year-old actor and musician apologised on Instagram for what he called a “strong lapse in judgment” after photos and video surfaced in November of him and Wainwright at a bar in New Orleans.

The images showed the two holding hands and, at one point, Wainwright’s hand on Timberlake’s leg. They play lovers in Palmer, a drama that follows a college football player after his release from prison.

Representatives for Biel and Timberlake didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Reports haven’t specified what would be considered infidelity under Timberlake’s contract with Biel, and Carrozza told FOX the couple’s current residence in Tennessee would also affect the agreement’s terms.

Tennessee is a so-called equitable distribution state, where judges are generally freer to rewrite the terms of an agreement to achieve fairness, said Carrozza, the author of the book Love and Money: Protecting Yourself from Angry Exes, Wacky Relatives, Con Artists, and Inner Demons, published in 2017.

Infidelity or “no cheating” clauses are among the most common of the lifestyle provisions, Carrozza told the Daily News in 2013. This isn’t the first time such stipulations have made headlines.

When speculation surfaced that celebrity golfer Tiger Woods wanted to reunite with ex-wife Elin Nordegren in 2013, she reportedly demanded an infidelity clause with a $US350 million ($A512 million) penalty, according to HuffPost.

Brad Pitt Reveals Why He Went 20 Years Without Crying

It’s Brad Pitt’s party and he’ll repress his emotions if he wants to. 

The actor revealed he kept the tears turned off for 20 years and is “quite famously a not-crier” in a conversation with his “Legends of the Fall” co-star Anthony Hopkins for Interview magazine.

“I hadn’t cried in, like, 20 years, and now I find myself, at this latter stage, much more moved — moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news,” Pitt explained. “Just moved. I think it’s a good sign. I don’t know where it’s going, but I think it’s a good sign.”

The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star, of course, shares six children ― Maddox, 18; Pax, 16; Zahara, 14; Shiloh, 13; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11 ― with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie. The couple split in 2016 after two years of marriage. 

These days, Pitt said he isn’t afraid of a good old-fashioned sobbing session ― be it at his sculpting studio or when he’s decidedly not dating Alia Shawkat ― now that he’s “able to witness the beauty and the wonder that we’re surrounded by in every minute detail.”

“We miss that when we’re young,” he added.

At this stage in his life, Pitt says he’s “still wrestling” with blame, apparently referring to his struggle with substance abuse amid his breakup with Jolie. 

Pitt previously revealed he stopped drinking altogether and found solace in Alcoholics Anonymous group meetings during his highly publicized divorce. 

“I’m realizing, as a real act of forgiveness for myself for all the choices that I’ve made that I’m not proud of, that I value those missteps, because they led to some wisdom, which led to something else,” Pitt explained. 

Instead of dwelling on his mistakes, the actor said he’s committed to trying to better himself through acceptance of his flaws. 

“We’re living in a time where we’re extremely judgmental and quick to treat people as disposable,” he said. “We’ve always placed great importance on the mistake. But the next move, what you do after the mistake, is what really defines a person.”

Back in 2017, Pitt described his split with Jolie as a “huge generator for change” in his life that forced him to take stock of his bad habits. 

“I’m really, really happy to be done with all of that,” he said, referring to his abuse of drugs and alcohol. “I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know — things I wasn’t dealing with. I was boozing too much. It’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again.”

Cows Swept Off Coast During Hurricane Dorian Survive ‘Gilligan’s Island’-Style

Three cows who were swept off the coast during Hurricane Dorian managed to miraculously survive in a manner perfect for a bovine-centered reboot of “Gilligan’s Island.”

The cows in question were part of a wild herd of 20 cows that roamed private land on Cedar Island, North Carolina, according to The Charlotte Observer.

When Dorian hit the area on Sept. 6, a lot of the wildlife swept off the island, including 28 wild horses.

The trio of cows were among those presumed dead — until recently, when they were all discovered living in the Cape Lookout National Seashore Park on the Outer Banks.

“It’s a tremendous story of how they made it,” park spokesman B.G. Horvat told The New York Times. “If the cows could talk, imagine the story they can tell you of enduring that rush of water.”

He added: “That must be incredible.”

It seems the castaway cows managed to swim five miles to a barrier island, where they then survived by grazing off the land, according to the BBC.

Park staff noticed the first cow about a month after the storm. The others revealed themselves with the last two weeks. 

Now the National Park Service is determining the best way to return the cows to their home, but the frontrunner seems to be sedating them and taking them back to Cedar Island on a boat, according to The Washington Post.

Stephen Colbert skewers Trump with a devastating burn during impeachment update

[embedded content]

The Late Show may have paused for Thanksgiving, but impeachment news never sleeps.

In the clip above, Stephen Colbert returns with an update – using the intelligence committee's impeachment report as a launching platform for a particularly brutal burn.

"Before the intelligence committee released their report, the GOP issued their own prebuttal, in which they concluded that Trump was acting on genuine and reasonable skepticism of Ukraine," says Colbert. "Yes, because the two words everyone uses to describe Donald Trump are 'genuine' and 'reasonable.' Right after 'athletic' and 'monogamous.'

Candace Cameron Bure Says Have Tissues Handy For Final Season Of ‘Fuller House’

The door will soon close for good at “Fuller House.”

The Netflix sequel to the long-running ABC sitcom “Full House” will return for a fifth and final season on Friday. And for much of the cast, parting ways is bittersweet. 

Candace Cameron Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner-Fuller on the series, said that nearly everyone got emotional when the cast wrapped production in mid-November.

“There were so many tears. It was tough,” Bure told HuffPost at Build Series. “A lot of people say jobs come and go. This particular show is more than a job for us. It’s really been more of a family and it has meant more to us than a typical job.” 

That’s because most of the actors from the original show came back, at least to some extent, when “Fuller House” launched in 2016. Like Bure, Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie Tanner) and Andrea Barber (Kimmy Gibler) returned as main cast members. Original series stars Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone) and John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis) made recurring appearances. Lori Loughlin periodically showed up as Aunt Becky, although she is not expected to appear in the final season given the charges she faces in the college admissions scandal.

Bure said it’s been such a “wonderful gift” to do the show a second time around. 

“There was a writer on our show that had said, ‘You’re lucky enough if lightning strikes once. You’re really lucky if lightning strikes twice. But to have it strike twice with your two best friends is pretty amazing.’ And that’s what’s happened with ‘Full House,’ ‘Fuller House’ and really getting to spend every day with my best friends Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber,” she said. “I absolutely love the multi-cam world and over-the-top comedy. It’s really fun. I love being goofy and silly. It’s a dream job and one that I’ll never forget and hold dear memories.” 

Season 5 will pick up where Season 4 left off. Fans may remember that last season wrapped with Kimmy giving birth to Stephanie and Jimmy’s baby after offering to be the couple’s surrogate in Season 3. Bure said that Season 5 won’t disappoint. 

“Get out the tissues ’cause there are more tears in this season than the other seasons,” she said. “And that’s also because there’s a lot of life lessons with the kids and the parents, lots of those violin-playing music moments. But there’s a lot of comedy and song and dance and silly hijinks.”

It’s even more special for the cast because the revival almost didn’t happen.

“A lot of people think that this show was on a whim,” Bure said. “Like someone asked us, ‘Do you want to reboot ‘[Full] House’? And we all went, ‘Yay!’” 

But that’s not the case. It took a lot of time and energy to get “Fuller House” off the ground. 

“We went out and we developed the show and then pitched it to every network, and they all turned us down. And Netflix was the last one we pitched to and they said yes,” Bure recalled. “And so we knew the fanbase that we had for 30 years and we really were certain that if the show was done right ― which we knew it would be because it was the original creator and executive producer [Jeff Franklin] of ‘Full House’ that was going to do it.”

Looking back, Bure said she’s really happy with the way the second series turned out and how the storylines evolved. 

“I was delighted at where D.J. was or is as an adult ― that she was a smart woman, a veterinarian and that [she] became as much of a clean freak and controlling as Danny Tanner. I just thought it was funny. And I liked that I turned into not quite the Joey Gladstone character but more of the dad and that I got to be the dorky mom at times.” 

"Fuller House," set in the same San Francisco home as the first series, finds Bure's character as the mom of three boys.

Having played the character on and off for three decades, Bure said there’s no doubt that she injects a piece of herself into the role.

“Every part of her is a part of me to an extent,” Bure said. “She’s a little bit more over the top and goofy. But those things have to come from me to some degree. She’s just like that extra version of Candace.” 

In addition to “Fuller House,” Bure can be seen in a new holiday film on Hallmark called “Christmas Town.”

Visibly Damp Papa John’s Founder Says He Ate 40 Pizzas In 30 Days In Viral Interview

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter is apparently eating a lot of pizza these days. 

Schnatter said in an interview broadcast Monday with Kentucky TV station WDRB that the quality of food at the Papa John’s chain has drastically shifted for the worse since he was ousted as CEO in July 2018. 

“I’ve had over 40 pizzas in the last 30 days, and it’s not the same pizza,” said Schnatter in the video, looking visibly damp. “It’s not the same product. It just doesn’t taste as good. The way they’re making the pizza is just not fundamental to what makes a Papa John’s pizza.”

Schnatter, 58, who founded Papa John’s in 1984, resigned as board chairman in July 2018 amid reports that he used a racial slur in a conference call earlier that year. He quit as CEO the previous December after an outcry over his criticism of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest injustice.

Schnatter acknowledged in the interview that he used the slur, but said he was quoting someone else to demonstrate his hatred of racism. He called the conference call a “farce.”

“I just didn’t know it would happen from people on the inside doing this,” Schnatter said. “I thought it would come from the outside.” 

Then he called out Papa John’s executives by name. “Steve Ritchie, Olivia Kirtley, the board of directors all used the black community and race as a way to steal the company,” he said. “They stole the company, and now they’ve destroyed the company.”

He claimed Kirtley, a Papa John’s board member, and director Mark Shapiro “should be in jail” because “what they’ve done is just wrong, and they’ve hurt a lot of people.”

“The day of reckoning will come,” he warned, and “the record will be straight.” 

“Stay tuned,” he added.

Papa John’s didn’t immediately answer a request for comment.

Meantime, a clip from the interview with Schnatter explaining his pizza consumption has gone viral ― for quite a few reasons. Here’s what people are saying:
