Super Bowl update… Peter Weber & Kelley Flanagan reunite… The Rock celebrates… Prince Harry recording with James Corden… and Aaron Rodgers announces he’s engagedListen to “Showbiz – Feb 8, 2021” on Spreaker.
Let’s talk Super Bowl! In his first year with Tampa Bay, Tom Brady led the Bucs to the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years and gave them their second Super Bowl win as they beat Kansas City, 31-9. In addition to being the Super Bowl MVP for the fifth time, this was Tom’s 7th Super Bowl win in 10 tries. This win means he is the only QB in history to win a ring in each of the three decades. If you placed any prop bets, here’s how a few of them turned out. It took Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan 2:17 to sing the National Anthem. The coin toss was heads. The first touchdown was scored by the Bucs with a pass from Tom to his good buddy Gronk. And the color of the Gatorade shower was blue. By the way, orange was the favorite and purple was the long shot.
Are former Bachelor Peter the Pilot Weber and Kelley Flanagan giving it another try? The two of them were spotted at a Super Bowl pre-party Saturday night in Tampa. Sources say they were joined at the hip the entire night. At the end of last year, Peter and Kelley announced they were moving to NYC together and almost immediately after that announcement, they announced they were breaking up. But a source to E! News that despite what it looks like, Peter and Kelley aren’t back together right now. The source said, “Peter has been reaching out to Kelley and regrets their breakup, but Kelley is very hesitant and thinks he’s not ready to commit to her but still has feelings for Peter.”
Dwayne Johnson played football at the University of Miami from 1991 to 1995, and yesterday he found out his college football rookie card just sold for $45,100! Obviously, the football thing didn’t work out for Dwayne, but he went on to a wildly successful career in wrestling and then movies. He posted on Instagram, “This story of how my UNIV of MIAMI football card’s value continues to rise has become so surreal to me. Playing in the @NFL was my dream and playing in the Super Bowl was my even bigger dream. Of course, neither dream came true for me but years later… On SUPER BOWL Sunday my rookie card gets sold for 45K!! Congrats to the winning bidder!” He continued, “I never made it as a player to the big dance, so this humbling irony is not lost on me one bit #unpredictablelife #94.”
James Corden has booked one of his highest profile guests yet for “Carpool Karaoke.” TMZ got pictures of James filming in L.A. with Prince Harry on a double decker bus and a police escort. A source said “They taped a COVID appropriate segment of Carpool Karaoke…They’ve been friends for years and had a great time. A lot of joking around and laughter. They toured Hollywood and James showed Harry some special landmarks. They also chatted about Harry‘s life in the US and his focus now.” We don’t know when this will air, but it could be sometime this month because of sweeps.
As he was accepting the 2020 AP Most Valuable Player award on Saturday, Aaron Rodgers announced rather nonchalantly that he’s engaged. WHAT?? We just found out he’s dating Shailene Woodley and now they’re getting married?? Or, we ASSUME he’s talking about Shailene. And we’re also assuming the two of them are even dating because neither of them has commented on that rumor, either. Or Aaron could simply be pranking us. Who knows! But as one person tweeted, “I guess Aaron Rodgers figured out a way to have everyone talking about him on Super Bowl Sunday….announce you’re engaged during your MVP speech.”
