Bey & Jay or Bonnie & Clyde?

Beyonce and Jay Z have wrapped up their On The Run Tour, so now they're releasing a series of three short films titled "Bang Bang." The first one came out yesterday.

If you saw the tour in person, you've already seen the three films strung together. If not (like most of us!), the three shorts are meant to pique our interest ahead of HBO's release of the On The Run concert film on September 20.

If nothing else, these two are brilliant marketers.

As for the short... Well, there's no dialogue. It's shot in black-and-white. Somebody shoots a mailbox, Jay Z puts his cigar out in a diner patron's hamburger. And Beyonce sort of looks like Faye Dunaway in a couple of shots. Oh, and the background music sounds like a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western.

Don't expect any Oscars for this one. But it will do the trick - keeping people talking about BeyZee.

Closed Captioning for the "I Don't Get Its," Perhaps?

Sometimes, it's not really clear what Elisabeth Hasselbeck is thinking...

In a tweet yesterday, she managed to wrap three scandals together: the one involivng Ray Rice and the NFL; the one involving the assualt on the US Embassy in Benghazi; and the one involving the IRS's alleged targeting of conservative groups. Is she suggesting that people are not calling for transparecny in all three? Or that people who are complaining about the NFL have more power than the others?

Or maybe she's just playing that game they used to play on Sesame Street: "One of These Things Just Doesn't Belong Here."

And in this case, maybe it's Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Big Time Pick Me Up

Okay, you're feeling a little low.

Work's got you down, it's the middle of the week, the weekend's in sight, but still...

You sure could use a little pick-me-up.

All you need is a big ol' dog, a garden hose and little girl with a tremendous laugh.

Play this video clip once, twice, three times - as many times as you need. It won't be long before you're smiling and ready to face the rest of the day, the rest of the week, the rest of the month.

If it doesn't work, have someone check your pulse...

Bourne Again!

If you're a fan of the Bourne trilogy - the three thrillers starring Matt Damon as the reawakened spy and assassin Jason Bourne - you are going to be delighted to read this news.

There are strong rumors that Matt's in development talks with Universal to bring the character back to the big screen.

Two years ago, the studio tried a spin-off - the underwhelming Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner.

Paul Greengrass, who wrote the second and third installments in the Bourne trilogy, is part of the team, set to write the script and direct the film.

Keep your fingers crossed, gang. This could be big.

Welcome Back, Babs

It's been over 50 years since singing legend Barbra Streisand has made an appearance on an American talk show. So it makes perfect sense that Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show turned the entire show over to her on Monday night.

 
Barbra was promoting her new album, "Partners," which was released commercially yesterday. It features Babs singing with other legends like Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Michael Buble, and thanks to some major studio magic, Elvis Presley.

None of them were available to sing with her on The Tonight Show, so Jimmy stepped in...

 
His Elvis needs a little work, his Blake Shelton sort of worked, and his Buble was passable, especially at the end.

But Babs was spectacular. Here's hoping she doesn't wait another 50 years to return.

Maybe She Should Glue It On

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg got married just a bit more than two weeks ago, and already, Jenny says she lost her wedding ring.

 
She visited Good Day NY yesterday and explained that she and her hubby had been in a hotel room and she had to remove the ring.

"It’s a little hard to get romantic with diamonds on your hand," Jenny said.

So she took it off and put it on the room service table. When room service came back, they collected the tray and now the ring is gone.

No word on whether she and Donnie were still in the bed when the ring and dirty dishes were collected.

But, she's not horribly upset. "If you’re gonna lose your wedding ring, you should lose it that way."

No one's seen Donnie in a while. I wonder if he's scouring the dumpsters at the hotel?

Better Half Of The Bills - Emily Urbik

We are soooo happy to have the wives and girlfriends of the Bills back for another year of The Better Half Of The Bills! Listen Tuesday mornings at 8:10 to get an inside look at the NFL life! This morning Emily Urbik, wife of Bills lineman Kraig, gave us an incredible look at an off season in which one of their closest friends was cut from the team, they bought a new house and had to attend 7 weddings! Wow! That's a lot of dresses and gifts! Oh…and we talk football too!
