Dino, Kirk and Buck opened the show discussing the latest on Ray Rice.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and guest host Steve Buckley. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Judy Sheindlin, longtime star of the reality TV show “Judge Judy,” appeared on a recent edition of “The Talk” and got into a discussion about the celebrity nude photo hacking scandal. Sheindlin, 71, said she had nude photos of herself many years ago but cut them up so that no one would ever see them.

“That’s the difference, though. She can physically cut up those photos back in the day — those old sepia-toned photographs in black and white,” Dennis said.

Said Minihane: “I’ll tell you, I was looking at Judge Judy. … I’m saying, for somebody who I think is in her eighth decade on the planet, not so bad.”

– Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathay died Monday at the age of 93. Cathay was embroiled in controversy a few years ago when his family, conservative Southern Baptists, took a public stance against gay marriage.

Said Minihane: “This guy was — I’m not going to say he was anti-gay, but he did say that if gay people can get married then tsunamis would happen and the world would end and all that stuff, so that’s always a little strange to me. But they make a hell of a chicken sandwich, and the waffle fries are unbelievable. So I remain conflicted on this one. And in the end, I always go with the waffle fries.”

Buckley said he never was a Chick-fil-A regular, but he would have stopped going to protest the owner’s political stance.

“I just don’t go there period,” he said.

Here are the highlights from Monday’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.

– Benz opened the abbreviated segment by asking Fauria how nervous he was when Colorado, his alma mater, trailed UMass by 11 points at the half of Saturday’s game. The Buffaloes eventually rallied for a 41-38 win.

“We’re just not the same team we used to be,” Fauria lamented.

– On a recent episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” current and former NFL players Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, Steve Smith, Terrell Suggs, Clay Matthews, Michael Strahan, Keyshawn Johnson and others read angry tweets that were directed at them.

This led to a discussion about angry tweets the hosts have received.

Fauria said he thinks Merloni gets the fewest mean comments of the trio.

“Out of the three of us, I think most people like you more,” Fauria said. “You’re the local kid …”

Merloni disagreed with that assessment.

“No, no, no, no, they know me more so they get on me more. See, you guys are still kind of like new. They don’t really know whether they should get mad at you or not. See, they like you, you’re still a former Patriot. In about another few months you’ll just be another idiot who doesn’t know anything.”

Here are the highlights from Monday’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.

– Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is in a car commercial that ran during NFL games on Sunday. Minihane speculated about how much the actor is making from the commercial for Lincoln MKC and said it’s a “bad career move” for the “True Detective” star.

Said Callahan: “One time Infinity offered Jack Nicholson $10 million to do a voice over for a car commercial and he turned it down. … I wished they called me for that.”

– President Barack Obama said he understood the criticism leveled at him for taking to the golf course after he made strong comments condemning ISIS militants for beheading American journalist James Foley.

Said Obama during an NBC interview: “I should have anticipated the optics, that’s part of the job. … Part of this job is also the theater of it.”

The trio had a field day with the “optics” comment, and Dennis took exception to the president’s actions, saying Obama should have been more apologetic about the situation.

Said Dennis: “How about this, ‘I was wrong? I should not have done it. I would love to have it back, I apologize, I should not have done it.’ ”

– Joan Rivers, who wanted a start-studded funeral, got exactly that. Radio host Howard Stern performed the eulogy and stars David Letterman, Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie O’Donnell, Hugh Jackman and Kathy Griffin were among those in attendance. The New York City Gay Men’s Chorus sang some Broadway hits.

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was honored at Yankee Stadium around the same time as Rivers’ funeral was happening.

Wondered Callahan: “Who had more celebrities at [their] event yesterday, Derek Jeter or Joan Rivers?”

– Martine Rothblatt, the highest-paid female CEO in America, was born a male. Rothblatt, who works for United Therapeutics (she also is the founder and former CEO of Sirius XM Satellite Radio), had a sex change operation 20 years ago, but Rothblatt still is married to the woman she wed when was a man. Minihane speculated what he would do if his wife had an operation to become a man.

Said Minihane: “I still think that I’d be friends with her, I guess. Right? But she’s still the mother, or father, of my kids, you still have to have some kind of relationship.”

Replied Dennis: “Do it for the kids.”

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.”
