Here’s what’s caught my eye on TV talk shows:
- “Today” revamped its set and now is emphasizing social media. That must be why we get to watch the anchors all looking at their phone as they’re going to commercial, supposedly texting or whatever. Silly.
- Also on “Today,” a piece on the beautiful and candid supermodel Bar Refaeli lamenting her inability to find a man. According to Leonardi Di Caprio’s ex, she is smart and funny, likes to go out but is OK with staying in, too. “Why Am I Alone?” she asks. That needy vibe might be working against her. Or was the story just framed to make her seem desperate? Hmmm.
- Lots of conversation everywhere on the selfie new mama Kim Kardashian posted that spotlighted her booty. Men panting everywhere. But only on “You & Me This Morning” did Jeanne Sparrow offer the helpful tip on how to have a Kim backside if it doesn’t come naturally. She reports there are shapers out there that add back padding. (Frederick’s of Hollywood was ahead of its time.) Tune in Monday and Jeanne promises to have the brand and more details on the one her cousin uses.
- Man, that WGN morning team is a tough one. Ana Belaval was having a choking fit as her segment was starting and had to go off-camera. Did they express concern? Heck no, they start chiding her to man up and finish her story. That’s journalists for you.
- I thought it was going to be a segment about me on “GMA,” women addicted to candy. But no, it was about how women (25-55) are obsessed with the social media game Candy Crush Saga.They’re spending big bucks, sneaking away from vacations to play it, & its impacting relationships. That doesn’t happen with my addiction to Snickers.
It’s easy to forget DeMar DeRozan’s three seasons with the Spurs and coach Gregg Popovich, but it admittedly taught the veteran what it truly means to be a leader and playmaker. Is that the formula for the Bulls moving forward, and can Zach LaVine join in the unselfishness when he’s able to return?
After 22 games of struggles — tallying only six points, including zero even-strength goals — Reichel will sit out Sunday against the Wild.
Kali Rynearson, a 30-year-old North Center resident, is facing a felony count of aggravated DUI leading to death along with six traffic citations and a local ordinance violation for driving in a bike lane, police said.
We rejected Donald Trump’s xenophobia in 2016 and 2020, and Chicago must reject it now as the presidential election and Democratic National Convention approach in 2024, state Sen. Robert Peters writes.
