Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– A Michigan man is learning how to walk again after having a 100-pound growth removed from his scrotum during a 16-hour procedure at a hospital in Southern California.

Dan Maurer said he looks forward to having sex with his wife for the first time in seven years, as well as traveling and jet skiing.

Said Dennis: “I’ve got a question for you: What did they do with it?”

Replied Minihane: “I don’t know, what do you do with a 100-pound scrotum?”

Suggested Callahan: “I don’t know, you make a tent? I don’t know, pool cover?”

Added Minihane: “You make a bunch of different hats, maybe?”

– Revered French actor Gerard Depardieu said he sometimes drinks up to 14 bottles of wine a day, despite having a quintuple heart bypass heart operation 14 years ago.

Depardieu, 65, said he starts in the morning with champagne or red wine before 10 a.m., and he claims he never gets “totally drunk.”

“I couldn’t open that many bottles,” said Callahan, who noted after seeing the actor’s picture, “He looks like a big drinker.”

– Woody Allen said in a recent interview that he lives a “very dull, middle-class life” and is not concerned with what ex-wife Mia Farrow thinks about him.

On his very public dispute with Farrow that included allegations of child molestation that he strongly denies, Allen said: “That means nothing to me. I’ve never given it a second’s thought, afterward. … And what do I care, when I shuffle off my coil? I don’t really care about anything that happens after my death. I don’t care if they take all of my movies and burn them.”

“You have to feel that way, Callahan said. “When you marry your daughter, that’s the way you’ve got to live life. You’ve got to be a nihilist.”

– Barbra Streisand is poised to become the first person to have a No. 1 album in six decades. “Partners,” an album that features the icon singing duets with a variety of male vocalists, is expected to have huge sales this week.

To promote the album, Streisand on Monday made her first late-night talk show appearance since 1963 when she appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, performing a medley of songs with the host before doing a solo number.

“She still sounds the same,” Callahan said after hearing a clip.

Said Minihane: “She seems like she’s a handful to me.”

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

LeBron James is playing himself in a movie called “Trainwreck” that is targeted for release next summer. The movie stars former “Saturday Night Live” actor Bill Hader and comedian Amy Schumer.

In a recent interview, Hader said that of the professional athletes he’s worked with, LeBron is one of the best at acting.

Fauria wondered where Shaquille O’Neal would rank on that list.

“I’m definitely going to see this movie,” Benz said, “Amy Schumer is one of my all-time favorites. She was hilarious when she was in town, in Mansfield.”

– The new season of “Dancing With the Stars” has begun, and two things stood out from the opening episode.

First, Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks on the early 1990s TV show “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” can dance.

“He’s a lock [to win],” Merloni said. “The dude looked like a professional. … He was all over the place. He was outstanding.”

Second, Olympic track star Lolo Jones was out of her element.

“She was so bad — when I’m talking about so bad, I mean, so bad it was ridiculous,” Fauria said.

Added Fauria: “So stiff. You can tell why she’s a virgin, for whatever that’s worth. She can’t deal with intimate contact. … Stiff as a board. You could tell she was uncomfortable with like just staring into her partner’s eyes, just the physical contact, she was in a skimpy little outfit that wasn’t a track outfit …”

Jones, who said, “I make no excuses, it was awful,” after her performance, was the first contestant voted off the show.

– More details have emerged about the situation actress Daniele Watts was involved in last week in Los Angeles that led to a police confrontation.

Watts became upset when a police officer approached her and her boyfriend and said he was responding to a 911 call about a lewd act being committed in public. She refused the officer’s request to provide identification and implied that she was being mistreated because she’s black.

On Wednesday, TMZ.com released witnesses’ photographs that show Watts and her boyfriend in a silver Mercedes with the door open, sitting in a sexually compromising position (Watts acknowledged to police that the couple was making out). One witness told TMZ Watts’ breasts were exposed as she straddled her boyfriend, and an employee in an office building adjoining the sidewalk where the car was parked asked the couple to stop before police were called.

“Daniele, don’t ‘F’ with TMZ,” Merloni said, “because they will get you every single time.”

Said Fauria: “If you’re going to have sex in the car, wouldn’t you go in the back seat or go around the corner, find a place where nobody’s there?”

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

Wynn Resorts won a bid for a license from the Massachusetts Gaming Council to build a casino in the Greater Boston Area. Steve Wynn’€™s proposed resort defeated a bid from Mohegan Sun that would have put a casino at Suffolk Downs.

The resort will have more than 150 table games, 3,000 slots, a five-star hotel and a mall.

Said Callahan: “€œI’€™m going to guess that none of the windows in the high-rise hotel will open.”€

The proposed plan is for the $1.6 billion casino and resort to be built on the polluted waterfront of Everett. The hosts said it will take a while for the project to be completed.

“Maybe four or five years from now before this is ready,” Dennis said. “They have to clean up all of the oil and stuff.”

Joked Callahan: “This is where all of the athletes stay when the Olympics come here.”

Added Minihane: “That wouldn’t be so bad. They’ve got the swimming right there. In the river.”

– A man from Rhode Island was charged with drunk driving four times in a two-day span, Cumberland police said. He was arrested once in Providence on Sunday and three times in Cumberland on Monday. He was hospitalized three times and also injured two children in an SUV along the way.

Said Dennis: “I’€™ll say this, Gerry, he’€™s no quitter. He’€™s not a quitter.”

“He’€™s a slow learner,” replied Callahan.

– The late Joan Rivers’€™ doctor reportedly took a selfie when Rivers was under anesthesia for a throat procedure. During the procedure, Rivers suffered cardiac arrest that led to her death.

“€œShe was gasping for air because her trachea closed and this guy’€™s taking a selfie,”€ Callahan said incredulously.

After hearing that the selfie took place in the operating room, Dennis took a shot at Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and the Adrian Peterson situation.

“€œZygi Wilf said he’€™s going to be allowed to practice his medicine as long as the due process is in play,” Dennis said.
