When in Chicago...

On Sunday, thousands of people jumped into Chicago's Lake Michigan.

It was time for the annual Polar Plunge, which raised close to $1 million for Special Olympics

On hand were a few celebrities. Vince Vaughn, an area native, jumped in wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey.

Lady Gaga showed up and took the plunge with her fiance, Taylor Kinney, one of the actors from Chicago Fire.

Ironically, Gaga was covered pretty much head to toe, wearing more to take a dip in the lake than she wears to perform...
 

Check out the video from The Chicago Sun-Times that includes some stills of Vince, Gaga and Taylor...

Kelly Quits the Cops

Kelly Osbourne went through with her threat to leave Fashion Police.

Last week, she was pretty upset over a comment her co-host Giuliana Rancic made about Zendaya's dreadlocks that created quite a stir.

She made her departure official on Friday, and instantly, her mother - Sharon Osbourne of The Talk - applauded her. Meanwhile, Billy Bush from Access Hollywood took a few shots at Kelly before her departure, and that angered the other half of Kelly's DNA pool - her dad, rocker Ozzy Osbourne - who had a choice tweet for Billy...

Live Long and Prosper

Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing the iconic Mister Spock in a variety of Star Trek movies and TV shows, passed away on Friday at the age of 83.

Four days earlier, he posted his final tweet, which sounds like he knew he was leaving... Since he passed, a lot of media outlets have been posting tidbits about him and Spock.

One of the more interesting is this interview from several years ago where he explained the origins of Spock's famous hand gesture that went along with the Vulcan salute, "Live Long and Prosper."

Don't Believe It? Just Watch!

"Uptown Funk" is one of the hottest tunes in the country.

It's one of those songs that gets your blood pumping and toes tapping.

Until now.

Thanks to Alex Bove and the Dancing Grandpas, "Uptown Funk" got slowed down - well, a little bit.

It's called "Oldtown Cover," and everyone in the video is at least 65 years old...

So some of the moves are way slower than the Bruno Mars version. Naturally.

50 Shades of SNL

Dakota Johnson, star of 50 Shades of Grey, hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

Her opening monologue wasn't bad. She poked fun at 50 Shades - actually took a couple of good shots at it.

And interestingly, she introduced her parents - Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson - who were in the front row.

Only Don spoke. Probably just as well...

Making the Most of Nothing

Steve Harvey has proved himself a master of making the most of some of the ridiculous moments on Family Feud.

But this one from last month takes the cake.

Simple question: "Other than fruit, name something you might choose by squeezing it first."

But neither contestant would buzz in. Because neither one could think of an answer.

And that left Steve to fill the gap while the show sort of reset itself.

Watch!

Showing Your True Colors

It's entirely possible the world went insane on Thursday.

Someone posted a picture of a two-toned striped dress to Tumblr on Wednesday, and asked simply: “Guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can't agree…"

And then the digital world exploded.

Is it white and gold? Or blue and black? It's turning into an almost uncivil war.

All sorts of people weighed in, and their opinions are strong.

Some, like Taylor Swift, are simply confused.
The folks at The Today Show have the skinny. Or do they? You be the judge.

This Guy Had the Hot Hand!

Florida State University's basketball squad lost to Miami on Wednesday by four points, 81 - 77.

But that's only how the story ends.

How Florida State got that close - that's the real story.

Because freshman guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes scored 30 points.

Not on the night, but in the final 4 minutes and 39 seconds of the game.

Not enough for the win, but more than enough to impress a lot of folks...

And it seems like people are hot for it already.

From T&A to Big Bang Theory

Melissa Rauch plays a scientist on The Big Bang Theory.

The other night on Conan, she talked about how she started performing at a very young age, in her parents' basement.

Her parents encouraged her in the arts, and let her see shows that maybe weren't appropriate for someone her age.

The show was "A Chorus Line," and Melissa's go-to song - lyrics, dance moves and all - was "Tits & Ass," a song about the plastic surgery one dancer gets to help her get more roles.

And of course, Melissa has a home movie to share with the world...
