Here are the highlights from Thursday’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.
– A Los Angeles artist who goes by the moniker XVALA wants to use the celebrity nude photos that were hacked as part of a show called “No Delete” that opens next month at a gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida. The show will include seven years of leaked imaged of celebrities.
“I would suggest to [XVALA] to stay away from the McKayla Maroney stuff, though, because that might get [XVALA] in extra trouble,” Benz said of the teenage gymnast.
Asked which photos were worth memorializing, Benz said: “The Kate Upton ones were not. The Jennifer Lawrence [ones], one or two of them were, yes.”
– At Thursday night’s Seahawks-Packers game in Seattle, undercover policemen wore Packers jerseys to see if any Seattle fans were looking for trouble.
Said Merloni: “If they’re just walking around calmly and someone starts with them, that’s fine. But if they’re like harassing me, you know what I mean, screaming and yelling, then you kind of say something back and they say, ‘I’m a cop,’ it’s like, ‘Hold on, dude.’ ”
Merloni also took issue with fans who are thrown out of NFL games having to go online and pay $250 to take a four-hour course about proper behavior that includes a test in order to have a chance to return.
“The Pats do have the same policy, a texter was saying,” Merloni said. “That’s unbelievable.”
– Joan Rivers, who died Thursday, wrote in her book “I Hate Everyone ‘¦ Starting With Me” that she wanted an extravagant funeral.
“I want my funeral to be a huge show biz affair with lights, cameras, action,” she wrote. “I want Craft services, I want paparazzi, and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing ‘Mr. Lonely.’ I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag.
“And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce’s.”
Said Fauria: “Here’s what I want to know: Are they going to do it? I hope they do it. I hope everybody shows up, and I hope they just go straight by what she wants. That would be the way to go. ‘¦ I hope they air it live on E!, because I’m watching.”
