Here's a chance for you to be the judge.

The scenario:
  • The Oxygen Network was in Houston recently auditioning for its show, Bad Girls Club.
  • While women waited in line to be seen, another woman was in a conversation with a police officer who had just put a traffic boot on the driver-side rear tire of her new BMW X5.
  • It's not really clear why the boot was put in place, or if the woman was there auditioning.
  • What is clear is that she didn't want to be booted.
  • So she drove off with the boot in place.
  • Clearly, it's not the proper size boot for that car, as the wheel is able to rotate almost freely.
  • And as she drove off to the cheers of the folks in line, the boot actually fell off.
Watch the video - the wind sounds on it can't be avoided.

Then weigh in. What do you think?

Legitimate circumstances, or a stunt staged by the producers of the show so they've got something to show for their time in Houston?

On Friday night, Stephen Colbert was one of two late night comics to say farewell to the shows and audiences who'd grown to love them.

(The other was Craig Ferguson on CBS's Late Late Show. More on him tomorrow.)

But first, Colbert wrapped up The Colbert Report on Comedy Central in an interesting way.

By turning it into a musical, sort of, with an amazing hodgepodge of singers. Starting with Jon Stewart from CC's The Daily Show, the seemingly endless list of guests included Big Bird and Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, former secretary of state Henry Kissinger, former president Bill Clinton, an astronaut from the International Space Station, Barry Manilow (who was misidentified initially by another reporter as Rod Stewart) and more. Dozens, maybe even hundreds of folks, all singing "We'll Meet Again."

Check it out - and be sure to keep watching when it appears to be over.

Stephen will be back in May, when he jumps into David Letterman's seat on CBS's Late Show.

Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to her third child, again sired by her boyfriend Scott Disick.

That happened last week, on December 14, on her firstborn son's 5th birthday.

Over the weekend, the happy couple announced the baby boy's name.

Joining brother Mason and sister Penelope is...

Well, read the Instagram post. I mean, that's how we ALL keep up with the Kardashians, isn't it?

Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick.

After all the buzz about Mariah Carey's troubles with singing "All I Want for Christmas" at the Rockerfeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony, here's a chance to see and hear it done right.

The group is Out of the Blue - the a cappella singers from Oxford University in England.

And, not only is it a good arrangement, the group is selling the single to raise money for the Helen & Douglas House, which provides hospice care for children in the United Kingdom.

If this weekend's cold open of Saturday Night Live is any indication, there could be some life left in the old dog afterwards.

It started with a spoof of Sam Smith, the automaton with the fantastic voice, promoting his new special, A Very Somber Christmas.

Suddenly, the "broadcast" was hijacked by none other than Doctor Evil - that would be one of Mike Myers' characters from the Austin Powers films.

Doctor Evil took issue with North Korea and Sony Pictures for giving "evil organizations a bad name."

Funny stuff - and biting satire as well.

Gisele Bunchen - aka Mrs. Tom Brady - posted another cute picture to Instagram yesterday, moments after her husband's team clinched a day off in the first-round of the NFL playoffs by beating the New York Jets.

It wasn't a pretty victory, or an easy one either, with the Patriots limping out of the Meadowlands with a 17-16 win.

Still, it was a win, and good enough for Gisele to hoist her daughter to her shoulder and post a picture of it to Instagram.

File this one under #godaddy!

And be sure to check out the look on the face of the dog - almost like he's saying, "Again?"

Yeeeeaaaaahh! #godaddy #gopats ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Here's a late-comer for the Most Ridiculous Man of the Year award.

A professional makeup artist in Manchester, England has reportedly spent about $150,000 for plastic surgery and more to look like his favorite reality TV star.

The star?

Kim Kardashian.

He's had lip fillers, laser hair removal and eyebrows tatooed on.

Take a look at the picture to see the results. And no, it is NOT Halloween. And he doesn't care what he looks like, according to The Sun, London's daily newspaper. "My look is all about the shock factor. I love all the attention and stares I get in the street. I welcome the hate — it just means more attention. And if anything, it just spurs me on to get more work done."

Good money chasing bad, folks. Especially since the guy looks more like the Octomom than the NorthWestmom.

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife have a holiday tradition - well, sort of a tradition - with acting couple John Krasinski (from The Office) and Emily Blunt (most recently from Into The Woods).

They live across the street from one another, and for Christmas, they play pranks on each other.

This has been going on for a couple of years, and each year, the pranks get bigger and more out of control.

Watch the clip to see what Jimmy did to them last year - the thing he thought would bring the prank-feud to a conclusion.

And then watch to see watch Emily and John did to raise the bar considerably higher this year.

Nice to have that kind of money to throw away, but it is sort of fun to watch.

Scratching my head just a little.

US Magazine put out a list yesterday of the Top 14 Celebrity Instagram Photos of 2014.

Six of the 14 involve the Kardashians in some way - by that calculation, they're taking up 43% of the internet, which sounds right and wrong all at the same time.

The rest of the list:
  • Jessica Simpson in a bathing suit holding a golf club
  • Macauley Culkin wearing a T-shirt with Ryan Gosling on it
  • Jessa Duggar's wedding kiss
  • Taylor Swift's 4th of July party
  • Nick & Vanessa Lachey's pregnancy announcement
  • Lauren Conrad's haircut
  • Bethenny Frankel wearing her 4-year-old's Hello Kitty PJs
The only one that really belongs - or at least makes some sense in being relevant - is the post Diem Brown's boyfriend put up after her passing, expressing his grief.

What a fun moment.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick made his final appearance on Boston Public Radio yesterday, and got a very interesting phone call as part of his farewell.

President Barack Obama called in, identifying himself as a former resident of Somerville, a suburb of Boston.

The president spent some time in the state while a student at Harvard, and he's got a good relationship with the outgoing governor.

So why not call in?

Watch the video of the call. Seems legit to me.
