Robert Kennedy Jr. ties the knot with Cheryl Hines in Hyannis Port
Robert Kennedy Jr. married actress Cheryl Hines Saturday at the the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port. It is the second marriage for Hines and third for Kennedy.
Despite the happy occasion for both, Kennedy has had a fair share of baggage surrounding his previous struggles with infidelity. A story in the New York Post indicated that the environmental lawyer kept a list of 43 suspected mistresses under the letter ‘G’ for “goomah” on his phone. “Goomah” is slang in Italian for a mistress.
“I’ll ask you right now, like we were doing at your wedding: Over/under how long this lasts, this Robert Kennedy/Cheryl Hines wedding. … Three and a half years?’ Minihane asked Dennis.
“Oh no, under,” Dennis responded. “But doesn’t she go into this with her eyes wide open? … So she thinks she’s the one who’s going to tame him.”
Hines is perhaps best known for her role as Cheryl Davis, the wife of Larry David on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
“Watching the show, I never thought she would marry a Kennedy,” Bradford said.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” earns $94 million at the box office
It was a strong debut for Marvel’s newest film, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which earned $94 million to top the box office. It was the highest opening for a film released in August, shattering the previous mark of $69.2 million set by “The Bourne Ultimatum” in 2007.
Despite the positive reception surrounding the film, Bradford said that he struggled to stay focused when he saw it at the movie theater.
“I’ve gone to a lot of movies, as you know,” Bradford said. “I don’t remember having to get up in the middle of a movie and walk out and just walk around, because I was falling asleep. … I don’t think it was so much about the movie, I was just tired. It just wasn’t for me. It was a lot of CGI.”
Scarlett Johansson‘s newest film, “Lucy,” finished second at the box office with $18.3 million.
“I was about to say, No. 2 this weekend was ‘Lucy,’ and I was driving around, and I heard John Dennis say he saw ‘Lucy,’ I almost drove into the Kennebec River. I was so surprised,” Minihane said.
“I really wanted to go see ‘Boyhood,’ but Kathy didn’t want to see ‘Boyhood,’ ” Dennis responded.
“You really wanted to see it? It’s great,” Minihane said.
“I may go by myself, which I never do,” Dennis added.
Woman sentenced to 180 days in jail after getting caught having sex in public in retirement-community gazebo
A 68-year-old resident of a retirement community in Central Florida is trading in her comfy apartment for a jail cell for the near future.
Margaret “Peggy” Klemm was sentenced to 180 days in a Sumter County jail on charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct after getting caught having sex in a gazebo in the center of the community area.
“This is what’s going on with the elderly down in Florida,” Minihane said.
“Any community that has a gazebo is just asking for something like that to happen,” Bradford quipped.
“I think she should be congratulated, don’t you?” Dennis said.
