– The big story of the week is the computer hacking scandal that led to the dissemination of nude photos of a number of celebrities.
Minihane wondered if the hosts felt “dirty” looking at the photos, knowing they were stolen.
“I felt a little dirty doing it, but I did it anyway,” Callahan said. “They both looked awesome, I’m talking about Kate Upton and Justin Verlander.”
Added Callahan: “My reaction is the hacker guy, he’s anonymous, he’s on the run, the FBI’s chasing him, I want him to come right here, to 20 Guest Street, I want to hire him. Because we have people who can’t transfer a voice mail. This guy can break into the private accounts of famous actresses. … That guy, he’s evil, but he’s smart. That’s what we want, some smart, evil guy.”
Said Dennis: “I wonder if he’s doing something profitable with his life and this skill set.”
The hacker claims to have photos of 101 celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence.
“I will say this, Jennifer Lawrence has a young face. … Like the sixth time I looked, I started feeling a little disturbed. It was weird,” Minihane joked.
– Joan Rivers remains on life support in a New York City hospital after going into cardiac arrest last week. The 81-year-old was said to be undergoing throat surgery when she was stricken.
“She had a great life,” Minihane said. “It sounds like it’s going to end here in the next couple of days.”
Said Callahan: “Is [daughter] Melissa going to survive without her? Isn’t Melissa like 50 now. And they act like, ‘Oh my God, the poor orphan child.’ ”
– Martin Scorcese reportedly will direct a movie about the Ramones in time for the 40th anniversary of the legendary punk rock group’s first album, which was released in 1976.
“I think they’re a little overrated,” Minihane said. “People say they like them, like Gerry ‘¦”
Callahan said the Ramones put on “the greatest concert.”
“It’s the greatest show,” Callahan said. “And you know what it is, it’s an hour, not 3 1/2, like [Bruce] Springsteen, dragging the frigging thing out all night.”
