Ahhhh, It’s Your Daily Constitutional Sheet!

★ Rowan Atkinson is to become a father for the third time. The 62-year-old comic – who already has son Ben, 23, and 21-year-old daughter Lily – is expecting his first child with partner Louise Ford.  Ford, who is an actress and has been dating Atkinson since 2014 – is said to be due to give birth in the next few weeks and the pair “can’t wait”.
★ Jason Momoa has teased that he is ready to start shooting ‘The Crow Reborn’.  Momoa has just wrapped up shooting the DC Extended Universe movie ‘Aquaman’, and is now ready to move onto his new project, a reboot of Alex Proyas’ 1994 fantasy thriller ‘The Crow’ – which starred the late Brandon Lee in the title role.  Lee died when he was accidentally shot and killed during filming.
★ Warner Bros. TV Group has launched an investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior by Andrew Kreisberg, an executive producer on the CW shows “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “The Flash” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”.  According to the claims of 15 women and four men who have worked with him, Kreisberg has engaged in a pattern of alleged sexual harassment and inappropriate physical contact over a period of years.  He has been suspended by the studio.
★ Ashley Judd is planning a new memoir, which will go into detail about the alleged sexual harassment carried out on her by Harvey Weinstein.  Insiders are saying that publishers could offer an advance of more than $1 million to secure rights to the book.  Judd’s first book,’ All That Is Bitter & Sweet’, which documented her childhood with mother Naomi and sister Wynonna, was a bestseller.
★ It turns out that Pierce Brosnan is also a talented artist. He apparently spends his free time between film shoots with an easel, and often paints gifts for his wife Keely Shaye Smith.  According to his website, “Pierce occasionally sells his original artwork and donates reproductions of his original artwork to help raise money for his favorite charities.”
★ Kim Kardashian is the only one of the three expecting sisters who will actually admit it, so it was only fitting that she’d have the first baby shower.  Kim, who is expecting baby #3 via surrogate, decorated her home with massive Cherry Blossom trees for the Saturday afternoon shower.  She documented the festivities on social media, of course, describing the theme as “tea for three with cherry blossom forest.” Kim also made sure all guests got an exclusive shower swag bag filled with — what else — her own upcoming fragrance line.
(And from all accounts her clothing managed to stay on through the entire affair!)

Forget the gym…just fuhgeddaboutit!  A study has shown that a regular routine of sit-ups and push-ups at home can prolong your life.  And that leisurely stroll on the treadmill?  It’s just not going to cut it.  New research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology suggests that cardio isn’t enough to lengthen your life, even if you put in the recommended 75 to 150 minutes of moderate to high intensity exercise.  You should also be doing strength exercises if you are interested in living longer and healthier.  A University of Sydney study found that those who participated in regular strength-based training were 23 percent less likely to die from any cause, and 31 percent less likely to die from a cancer-related death.  And you don’t need to join a gym and try to figure out all those weird machines to do your lifting.  The study’s authors point out that strengthening exercises that use your own body-weight, such as sit-ups and push-ups are just as effective as weight-based training.
(But you’d better still grunt obnoxiously, just to be safe…)
(If I have to do sit-ups every day, I’m not sure I WANT to live longer.)
(I’ve got to say, though, that the ‘sweaty at the gym’ selfie is way cooler than the ‘push-ups in front of the living room TV’ selfie!)

The Super Bowl will take place on Feb. 4, 2018 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The theme for Super Bowl 52 is ‘Bold North’.  Don’t worry, you won’t forget it…because you will be seeing it EVERYWHERE.  Documents filed by the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee show some of the places that they have plans to place…and sell products containing the slogan.  There’s the obvious — clothing, key chains, magnets, wallets, umbrellas.  There are the less obvious – -portable chairs, jigsaw puzzles, toys, temporary tattoos. And then there is the stadium overkill: It looks like everything you’ll buy at U.S. Bank Stadium will feature the slogan, even the menu items, including ‘Bold North’:
— Sandwiches (brisket, turkey, beef and vegan, too!)
— Fried chicken
— Pretzels
— Pizza, calzones
— Hot dogs, corn dogs
— Donuts
— Burritos, tacos and fajitas
(Bold?  That’s Super-Bold!)
(It’s a bold effort at cleaning out your wallet, that’s for sure!)
(I just don’t know if a taco labelled ‘North’ can be considered authentic…)

☞Jennifer Lopez- doesn’t smoke or consume alcohol or caffeine.  (One thing for sure, that would make the weekend seem a lot longer!)
☞ Jennifer Aniston – eats her favorite foods, but swaps in healthier ingredients.  (Which would work…if I could cook)
☞ Cindy Crawford – starts every day with a cup of green tea and a protein shake.  (Might as well get it over with early!)
☞ Kelly Ripa – eats treats only once a week.  (But she eats co-hosts for breakfast!)
☞ Halle Berry – eats four small meals a day. (I’m mostly there.  I’ve got the “4 meals a day” part down pat!)
☞ Nicole Kidman – sticks to the 80:20 rule…meaning she eats healthfully 80% of the time, and splurges or gives in to cravings the other 20% of the time.  (80:20?  That’s how I mix my scotch and water!)
☞ Cher – works out 5 times a week.  (Not a grey hair on her, either!)
