Leslie Nielsen Has Died:

LESLIE NIELSEN . . . the comedy LEGEND who starred in "Airplane!" and the "Naked Gun" movies . . . died Sunday at a hospital near his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He was 84. --Nielsen had been in the hospital almost two weeks battling pneumonia. His nephew Tweeted that he was surrounded by family and friends as he, quote, "just fell asleep and passed away." --People under a certain age probably wouldn't know this, but Leslie Nielsen was actually known as a SERIOUS actor throughout the first half of his career, in movies such as the 1956 sci-fi classic "Forbidden Planet". --And he was the captain in the 1972 disaster film "The Poseidon Adventure", but he's killed off before the ship flips over by a wave hitting the bridge. --He also did a ton of TV guest appearances, on shows like "Gunsmoke", "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", "M*A*S*H", "Hawaii 5-0", "Kung Fu", "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island". --But his career EXPLODED when the writer-director team of Jim Abrahams and Jerry and David Zucker had the brilliant idea of putting his deadpan delivery to comedic use in their 1980 masterpiece "Airplane!" --The four of them teamed up again for "Police Squad!" . . . a TV series in the same comedic vein. Nielsen played bumbling police lieutenant Frank Drebin . . . and it was hilarious . . . but it only lasted a mere 6 episodes in 1982. --But it did spawn the 1988 film "The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad" and its two sequels. --From there, Nielsen became the go-to guy for spoof-type comedies . . . none of which lived up to the brilliance of "Airplane!" or the "Naked Gun" flicks. --They included "Repossessed", Mel Brooks' "Dracula, Dead and Loving It", "Spy Hard", "Wrongly Accused", "Superhero Movie", "Stan Helsing" and the third and fourth flicks in the "Scary Movie" franchise.

TAYLOR SWIFT and JAKE GYLLENHAAL haven't admitted that they're dating yet. But they don't have to.

It's right near where Jake's sister MAGGIE lives and she's a regular there.

Does Angelina Jolie Hate Thanksgiving?

BRAD PITT, ANGELINA JOLIE and the kids reportedly spent Thanksgiving in Seychelles, because Angelina is NOT cool with what Thanksgiving stands for. (--Seychelles is an island nation in the Indian Ocean, about a thousand miles off the eastern coast of Africa, and northeast of Madagascar.) --A so-called "source" says, quote, "Angelina Jolie hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans. --"To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn't her style. --"She definitely doesn't want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder." --The source adds, quote, "Angelina gets so grossed out by Thanksgiving that she has made sure her family will not be in America this year on Thursday. If Brad wants turkey, he will have to cook it himself."

Kanye West Got Booed At the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade:

No big surprise here: KANYE WEST got BOOED as his float made its way through New York City Thursday during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. --To be fair, we don't know if EVERYBODY booed Kanye.

I'm sure he'll be back out to the court again soon."

"Tangled" Had the Second Best Thanksgiving Opening of all Time . . . But "Harry Potter" Still Won the Holiday Weekend:

"Tangled" earned $69 million over the long holiday weekend. That's the second-best Thanksgiving opening of all time . . . (--Behind the $80 million opening of "Toy Story 2".) . . . but it wasn't enough to knock Harry Potter from the top of the box office. --"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" made another $76 million over the 5-day Thanksgiving weekend, to beat "Tangled" by about $7 million. --Meanwhile, CHRISTINA AGUILERA and CHER'S "Burlesque" came in at #4 with just over $17 million.

It shows this perpetual, violent string of events."

Leonardo DiCaprio Needed the Plot of "Inception" Explained to Him:

Like a lot of people, LEONARDO DICAPRIO didn't get "Inception". But he had one advantage the rest of us didn't: He could just ask CHRISTOPHER NOLAN . . . the writer and director . . . to explain it to him. --After reading the script for the first time, Leo was pretty confused. He says, quote, "I needed to know implicitly where we were. It got incredibly confusing at certain points in the beginning, but the more we talked, the more I understood."

A number of years ago, a beer company offered me $5 million, back when that was a lot of money, to be their commercial spokesperson." --Weird Al said thanks, but no thanks. He explains, quote, "A lot of my fans were young and impressionable, so ethically I believe I did the right thing . . . but not a day goes by when I don't think, 'Hmm, an extra $5 million would really come in handy.'"

WILLIE NELSON was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas on Friday morning and charged with possession of six ounces of marijuana. (--Sierra Blanca is in the far western part of Texas . . . about 85 miles east of El Paso.) --This went down when Willie's tour bus pulled in for a routine U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint at about 9:00 A.M. The officer opened the door and got a whiff of the giggle weed . . . so he decided to search the bus. --After finding the marijuana, the agent contacted the local sheriff who then arrested Willie and three other people. We don't know the identities of the other three, but they were most likely members of Willie's crew. --The sheriff told the "El Paso Times" that Willie admitted the marijuana was his. He also said that particular checkpoint averages 10 to 15 drug-related arrests a day. Willie posted $2,500 bond and was released on Friday. Willie's people have yet to comment. (--I doubt much will come of this. Especially when you compare it to Willie's tour bus arrest in Louisiana in 2006. That's when the cops confiscated 1.5 POUNDS of marijuana and a small bag of magic mushrooms.) (--Willie and his tour manager David Anderson eventually plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge on that. They were each fined $1,024 and given six months probation.)

And frankly, he's lucky to be alive. --Keith camped out for eight hours in front of a Target in Buffalo. When they finally opened the doors, people flooded in. Keith . . . who is NOT a small man . . . got jammed against a metal door, then shoved to the ground, then trampled. --Fortunately, security guards and Target employees were able to slow down the crowd and pull Keith to safety.

On top of that I had to give $150 to the police department to get myself out of jail. --"That could've gone toward the dog that I'm planning on buying my daughter or toward the gift I was going to buy her last night." (Wisconsin State Journal)

Researchers Have Figured Out the Most Boring Day In History:

April 11th, 1954. --On that day, there were no major events. No one significant was born, or died. Nothing happened in politics, international news, or sports.

Rima was Miss Michigan, and won the Miss USA 2010 pageant back in May. --Well . . . just as the parade was getting under way on Thanksgiving, one of the girls who Rima BEAT showed up. She's Davina Reeves, and she was Miss New York. She didn't make the Miss USA pageant top 15. --But that didn't stop her from wanting to get in on all the parade glory.

In case you haven't heard, today is Cyber Monday. It's like Black Friday, but on the Internet. So here are's top five Cyber Monday shopping tips . . .

#1.) Shop Early. It's the Internet, so it feels like deals won't end. But in reality, it's just like Black Friday: The earlier you shop, the better the deal is. Some sites even started their Cyber Monday sales YESTERDAY.

#2.) Compare Prices. Don't buy anything until you've checked the price on at least two or three other sites. Amazon is a good place to get a price on just about anything. --And you can also try Google's "Shopping" link in the top left corner of their homepage.

#3.) Do Your Research. The great thing about buying stuff on the Internet is you can do research WHILE you shop. And the reviews on most websites can be sorted by "most favorable," "most critical," and "most helpful." suggests reading the top three reviews in each category.

#4.) Be Careful With Your Credit Card. If you end up on a weird website and the price is significantly lower than anywhere else, Google the name of the site and make sure it's not bogus. --You should also never use your credit card when you're on public Wi-Fi, because it's a lot easier for someone to steal your credit card number.

#5.) Don't Forget To Look For Coupons. A lot of websites let you use them on top of the Cyber Monday sale prices. and are two good places to check first. (
