Watch Happy Gilmore’s Adam Sandler, Christopher McDonald Golf Game


Four! Adam Sandler and Christopher McDonald reignited their iconic Happy Gilmore rivalry in honor of the film’s 25th anniversary on Tuesday, February 16.

“Happy loves you all! Thanks for everything!” Sandler, 54, wrote via Instagram on Tuesday, alongside a video of himself channeling his inner Happy Gilmore.

The New York native, who played the hockey player turned golf pro in the 1996 film, then showed off his golf swing while challenging his onscreen nemesis, Shooter McGavin (McDonald), to dust off his putter.

“It’s been 25 years since I’ve done this. Let’s see what happens,” Sandler said while setting up his video. “I’m scared. Shooter McGavin, this is for you.”

The 50 First Dates actor admitted he crushed it, after hitting the ball on an empty golf course. “And I’m not lying to you … that was smashed. That went pretty well,” he said, before screaming into the camera, “You’re dead, Shooter!”

McDonald, 66, accepted Sandler’s challenge and shared his own video. He took on the persona of Shooter, who was the golfer favored to win the PGA Tour before Happy joined, via Twitter.

“Nice drive, Gilmore! 25 years, huh? Let’s see if it’s Shooter’s tour,” the actor said as he putted the ball at his home. “Check it out. Oh, yeah. It’s all about the short game.”

The Thelma & Louise star celebrated a perfect shot, yelling, “Money! Shooter’s still got it!” He then thanked all the fans for their support of the film and Sandler for writing it and starring alongside him.

McDonald slipped even deeper into character, saying, “Why don’t you just meet me at the ninth green at nine Gilmore … a little secret of the pros. Oh, and Gilmore, wear something nice.”

He laughed in a villainous manner before adding: “25th anniversary, baby. Shooter, out!”

Happy Gilmore also starred Julie Bowen as Happy’s love interest, Virginia, Frances Bay as his grandma and Carl Weathers as Chubbs.

Bowen, 50, exclusively told Us Weekly in November 2019 that the cast has never talked about doing a sequel to the golf film. “I don’t think he’s ever done a sequel,” the Modern Family alum told Us, pointing out that she was “in his second movie ever.”

The pair did, however, team up again for Netflix’s Hubie Halloween in October 2020.

What to Watch in Trump’s Impeachment Trial


The second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump begins on Tuesday, about a month after he was charged by the House with incitement of insurrection for his role in egging on a violent mob that stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Here’s what you need to know.

Senate Democrats and Republicans, joined by the House impeachment managers and Mr. Trump’s legal team, reached a bipartisan agreement on Monday that would pave the way for an especially quick and efficient proceeding that could be over by early next week.

The rules allow each side up to 16 hours to lay out its case. The Senate is poised to vote to approve the rules and formally begin the trial at 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

Up to four hours will be devoted to debating the constitutionality of impeaching a president who is no longer in office. If a simple majority of senators agree to move forward, as expected, the main part of the trial begins.

Starting Wednesday, the prosecution and the defense will have 16 hours each to present their cases to the senators, who are serving as a jury. The oral arguments will continue at least through Friday, but could extend into next week.

Tradition dictates that senators are then allowed at least one day to ask questions. This time, senators may give House managers the option to force a debate and vote on calling witnesses, but it is unclear if they will choose to do so. The trial is expected to conclude with closing arguments and a final vote on whether to convict Mr. Trump.

In a fast-paced and cinematic case, the House managers will argue before the Senate that Mr. Trump is guilty of inciting a deadly mob of his supporters to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6.

The prosecution plans to show videos captured by the mob, Mr. Trump’s unvarnished words and criminal pleas from rioters who said they acted at the former president’s behest. In trying to rekindle the outrage around the assault, which sent lawmakers into hiding as they met to certify President Biden’s victory, House managers are aiming for a conviction and to bar Mr. Trump from holding office again.

“We think that every American should be aware of what happened,” Representative Jamie Raskin, Democrat of Maryland and the lead prosecutor, said in an interview. “That the reason he was impeached by the House and the reason he should be convicted and disqualified from holding future federal office is to make sure that such an attack on our democracy and Constitution never happens again.”

In a 78-page brief filed on Monday, Mr. Trump’s lawyers argued that the impeachment proceedings were unconstitutional because Congress has no basis for judging a former president. No former president has ever been impeached, but the trial is not without precedent: The Senate tried a war secretary in the 1870s after he had left office.

On Friday, more than 140 constitutional lawyers took aim at the argument put forth by Mr. Trump’s lawyers, calling it “legally frivolous.” However, it could still give Republican senators political cover to reject the charges on a technical issue without being forced to focus on Mr. Trump’s behavior.

Whatever unfolds in arguments throughout the week, few expect that enough Senate Republicans will vote differently than they did in Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial.

Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, said as much on Sunday, suggesting on the CBS program “Face the Nation” that the outcome of the trial was “really not in doubt.”

When the Senate voted to acquit Mr. Trump last year, Senator Mitt Romney of Utah was the only Republican to join Democrats in voting to convict.

This time, he may not be alone.

Several other Republicans, including Senators Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania and Susan Collins of Maine, indicated that they had serious concerns about Mr. Trump’s role in inciting violence.

But less than two weeks ago, 45 Republicans voted to dismiss the entire impeachment proceeding as unconstitutional, strongly indicating that the threshold of 67 votes — or two-thirds of the chamber — needed to convict might be out of reach.

The New York Times’s congressional team will be following the developments on Capitol Hill. Visit nytimes.com for coverage throughout the week.

The proceedings will also be streamed online by C-SPAN and televised by major networks, including CNN and PBS.

Jersey Shore’s Mike Sorrentino Spills Cast Secrets: Watch


If you’ve got a secret, don’t count on Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino to keep it!

When the Jersey Shore Family Vacation star recently joined Us Weekly virtually to discuss the new season along with wife Lauren Pesce, he was asked to spill dirt on his many costars. The New York native, 38, gave some surprising intel on his castmates — including who he believes is the most “freaky” of the bunch.

Vinny [Guadagnino] is an introvert, which I don’t know if that’s a good thing or bad thing. But he’s also an intellectual,” he said. “He is super — what’s the word. I guess the nicest way about it [is that] he’s probably the freakiest one of the squad.”

Mike then revealed that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro “cries too much,” adding, “He also has a very big heart and he’s actually very good at his job when he tries.”

While the Dancing With the Stars alum believes that Deena Cortese is “too sensitive” sometimes, he raved about her “awesome” parenting abilities and how she and her husband Chris Buckner are “couple’s goals.” He noted, “They have a great relationship and I love that, because relationships are not easy. Anyone that has a good relationship with good communication and things like that, it’s something to be envied about,” he shared.

Mike said that Jenni “JWoww” Farley is both “very mentally tough” and “a great businesswoman.” However, he said that it’s of great importance to ensure you remain on good terms with her.

“The only bad thing about Jenni is you don’t want to be on her bad side. You don’t want to be on the opposite end of that backhand,” he explained, referencing the one time she slapped him years ago during a disagreement that aired on Jersey Shore. “We have a great relationship and she’s actually my neighbor. She lives right down the road [from me and my wife].”

While the MTV veteran praised Pauly DelVecchio for being “a man of all trades” who “can fix anything in his house from plumbing to electric,” he said that Angelina Pivarnick is “messy at times” but “has a good heart.” As for Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Mike said that she is “obviously a supermom with her children” and an “awesome” businesswoman. “We definitely would get advice from her,” he said of the Snooki Shop founder.

Mike also shared a sweet tidbit about Lauren, 36, saying, “The good thing about my wife is she is my better half and she makes me strive to be better. Anytime you’re in a relationship with someone that makes you a better person, that’s where you want to be.”

The first half of Jersey Shore Family Vacation’s 4th season premiered on MTV in November 2020. The stars filmed the MTV series amid the coronavirus pandemic — a factor that Mike explained was relatively challenging.

“It was very difficult filming that particular season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation with COVID, with the precautions, with the restrictions,” he said while teasing how the cast is “filming right now, too, sporadically.”

For more on what Mike had to say about his Jersey Shore castmates, check out Us Weekly’s video above!

Jersey Shore Family Vacation airs on MTV Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET.

Finished Bling Empire? Here’s What You Should Watch Next


Diamonds and drama.

That’s what Netflix‘s Bling Empire delivered when it was released back in January—and we couldn’t be more pleased. For those unfamiliar with the show, Bling Empire follows a wealthy group of Asian and Asian American friends in Los Angeles as they shop, fight and live their best lives.

The show, which stars Kevin Kreider, Kim Lee, Kelly Mi Li, Anna Shay, Christine Chiu, Kane Lim, Jamie Xie and Cherie Chan, has been devoured by viewers. In fact, Bling Empire even made Netflix’s top 10 list at one point.

However, having binged the Netflix hit so quickly, we were left eager for a new show to consume. While Bling Empire is wildly entertaining, it isn’t the first reality show to take the world by storm.

For starters, there is Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the long-running E! docu-series that follows the lives of the Kardashian-Jenners.

Watch Florida Republican try to explain why he thinks Trump impeachment trial is ‘stupid’


In a very slightly more eloquent attempt to express himself, Rubio said he feels, “We already have a flaming fire in this country,” and that a trial would amount to “a bunch of gasoline.” Basically, just another way of arguing that a trial would rupture unity efforts, even though as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued last week, ignoring all that’s gone is actually what is more likely to sow division in the country. Why? Because we need accountability. 

As of Sunday morning, at least one Republican sees the impeachment trial differently than Rubio, however. We can check out more of what Rubio said below, as well as what one of his peers in the Senate argued.

Rubio said he does think Trump “bears responsibility for some of what happened” and that it was “certainly a foreseeable consequence of everything that was going on.” It would be fascinating to hear what Rubio qualifies as “some” of what happened when a group of pro-Trump rioters surged into the U.S. Capitol and effectively terrorized elected officials. Rubio, instead, stressed he thinks that is “separate” from the idea of revisiting it and “stirring” it up. 

Here’s that clip.

Also related to the Trump family, Wallace asked Rubio how he feels about whispers that Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, may run for a senate seat in Florida. Given that Rubio is up for reelection in 2022, a primary challenge is considerably important. Rubio, however, dodged the meat of the question by declaring that he “really get into the parlor games of Washington.”

He did say that if he wants to be “back in the U.S Senate, I have to earn that every six years” and that he doesn’t own his seat. Which is true, but would ring as a touch more meaningful if Florida didn’t have rampant voter suppression issues. 

Wallace also spoke to Sen. Mitt Romney about the impeachment trial, posing the same question to both Republicans. Did they agree with fellow Republicans who argued that the trial should be thrown out under the alleged basis that it’s unconstitutional to convict a former president? Rubio said yes, he’d definitely vote to nix the trial, but Romney thinks the proceedings are constitutionally solid. (Which, of course, they are.)

“if you look at the preponderance of the legal opinion by scholars over the years,” Romney explained, “the preponderance of opinion is that yes, an impeachment trial is appropriate after someone leaves office.” Romney, who did vote to convict in the first trial, however, did not say how he would vote either way a second time, noting they have yet to actually hear arguments and evidence from both sides.

Watch Below Deck’s Rachel Bash James: “He’s a F–king Idiot”


If drunk words are indeed sober thoughts, then Below Deck‘s newest boatmance won’t be getting Chef Rachel Hargrove‘s stamp of approval any time soon.

The Bravo star unloads on Elizabeth Frankini in this exclusive sneak peek of tonight’s all-new episode, telling the stew that her current hookup partner, James Hough, isn’t worthy of her time. And to make matters worse, Rachel is doing this while out to dinner with the entire crew—including James, who can hear everything she’s saying.

“I’m so mad at you. I’m mad at you,” Rachel tells Elizabeth. “Why the f–k would you go f–k that dude?”

“He’s a f–king idiot,” she adds, refusing to mince her slightly slurred words. “I’m f–king pissed.”

Elizabeth, confused, doesn’t really react. “You don’t like James?” she responds. “I like him a lot. Give it a chance.”

But before Rachel can say anything, a fed-up James jumps into the conversation: “Can you do me a favor and not talk about me?”

It’s ‘Horrible’ to Watch Austen Get ‘Berated’ by Madison


Things between Austen Kroll and Madison LeCroy are going to get even nastier during the upcoming two-part Southern Charm season finale, according to John Pringle.

“It’s horrible to watch that. I think I say something to him on camera, like, ‘What’s happening? What is this?’ Because I had no idea that’s how it was. No one wants to see their friend just getting berated or told, you know, told to shut the F up [or] whatever,” Pringle exclusively told Us Weekly. “No one wants to see their buddy get belittled in front of a group of people.”

While Kroll and LeCroy’s on-again, off-again relationship has been playing out on season 7 of Southern Charm, the hairstylist broke the news to Us in December that the twosome had split for good.

“I get along with Madison, but watching her as a girlfriend, I thought was pretty intense,” Pringle added, noting their relationship was “horribly toxic.”

While the single father added that both of his costars “seem to be in a good spot” now, Kroll told Us last month that it’s been hard for him to watch their relationship drama on the series.

“The way that Madison treats me in [the last couple episodes] and the things that she says about me behind my back and the way that she just treats me like a nuisance in her life … it broke my heart,” he said. “It’s like being able to see [the signs] just right in front of my face. I was like, ‘Austen, what are you doing?’ What you’re seeing [on TV] happened back in May, June, July. People assume that we broke up yesterday.”

LeCroy, for her part, told Us that the pair never recovered from their issues that stemmed during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I definitely think that quarantine was either gonna make it or break [our] relationship and unfortunately, we did not come out stronger,” she dished to Us in December. “We weren’t even in quarantine together. We did for a short period of time, and then I think we both realized that maybe there was just too many things that had happened in the past for us to actually play house for 14 days or whatever it was.”

Kroll previously teased that things get tense between him and his ex during the upcoming reunion, which taped in December. After filming the special, the Kings Calling Brewing owner jetted off to Nashville with costar Craig Conover to party with Kristin Cavallari. While both Kroll and Cavallari have insisted they are just friends, that didn’t stop LeCroy from spending time with the Hills alum’s estranged husband, Jay Cutler.

It’s nothing serious at this point,” a source told Us earlier this month about Cutler and LeCroy’s “flirty” romance. “But they’re having fun getting to know each other.”

When asked about the former athlete on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on January 7, LeCroy quipped, “I’m not kissing and telling.”

Part one of the Southern Charm finale airs on Bravo Thursday, January 14, at 9 p.m. ET.

Nikki Bella’s in Labor & Artem Chigvintsev Is “S–ting” Himself: Watch


We’re just days away from the moment every Total Bellas fan has been waiting for all season: the arrival of Buddy Danielson and Matteo Chigvintsev.

Nikki Bella is on her way to the hospital in this sneak peek of what’s sure to be an emotional episode, and even though she’s starting to experience labor pains, it’s her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev who’s really feeling the pressure.

“What I’m nervous about the most is, you have a certain attachment to it, you know?” he tells Nikki in the above clip. “Like, I don’t have the same attachment because it’s not within me for nine months.”

The soon-to-be mom is quick to reassure Artem that he’s going to be “an amazing dad,” but that doesn’t stop him from continuing to worry about everything.

“Honestly, I’m s–ting myself,” the professional dancer admits in a confessional. “I’m sitting in the car thinking, ‘This is it.'”

Finished Bridgerton? Here’s What You Should Watch Next


It’s been over two weeks since Bridgerton dropped on Netflix and it’s still all that anyone can talk about.

Between the incredible orchestral versions of your favorite pop songs and those steamy sex scenes, it’s safe to say that the Netflix period drama has taken the world by storm. No, literally, the show has been projected to reach 63 million households within 28 days of its debut.

We were among those households who devoured the series and we’re here to tell you that we’ll never listen to Taylor Swift‘s “Wildest Dreams” the same. (If you know, you know.)

However, having binged the series so quickly, we were left itching for a new show that would inspire us the way Bridgerton has.

While Bridgerton is definitely captivating and brilliantly done, it isn’t the first period drama to capture the world’s attention.

For starters, there is Downton Abbey, the upstairs-downstairs drama that won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries and the Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries. Hey, before there was a Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) there was Violet, the Dowager Countess (Dame Maggie Smith).
