THE BIG A&E NEW STORY THIS WEEK IS:
The 90-year-old makes a cameo appearance in The Voice Super Bowl commercial upstaging the show’s judges
Betty White steps out of the shower revealing herself as the unknown voice. "It's about time somebody wanted me for my voice, and not my body," she says.
This makes White’s second big super bowl commercial following the Snickers commercial in 2010 which helped resurge her career.
White seems to do no wrong and her comeback continues to grow. Good for her!
In related White newz, the 90-year-old actress, who stars in the TV Land sitcom Hot In

Bud Light Platinum made its television ad debut during Super Bowl XLVI. Anheuser-Busch's newest brand had two 30-second ads during the first quarter of the game.
Anheuser-Busch also had two ads each for Bud Light and Budweiser. The world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales was featured in one of the Budweiser ads.
Here is a list of the ads that aired:
First Quarter - "Factory" (Bud Light Platinum) - The process of creating something truly Platinum is revealed. (:30); "Work" (Bud Light Platinum) - This office is anything but conventional. (:30)
Second Quarter - "Return of the King" (Budweiser) - A town celebrates as the Clydesdales usher in a historic moment in American history. (:60)
Third Quarter - "Eternal Optimism" (Budweiser) - Highlights of American achievements throughout history, with the assurance of more to come. (:60)
Fourth Quarter - "Rescue Dog" (Bud Light) - Calling this dog's name unveils a special trick. (:60)
FLOTUS Michelle Obama continued her Let’s Move Campaign by going on several national talk shows which started with her appearance on The Tonight Show last week.
She also made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, where she came out to an energetic dance routine with the chat show queen by her side.
After busting some moves, Obama- who's famous for showing off her toned arms - was challenged to a push up competition by her host.
She managed an impressive 25 repetitions - prompting Ellen to joke that she didn't do as many because she "didn't want to show up the first lady".
Also, talk show host Jimmy Fallon challenged First Lady Michelle Obama in a fitness competition at the White House last month to promote her initiative.
Upon Fallon's arrival, Mrs. Obama asked, "Are you ready for a little competition?"
Inside of the blue room in the White House, Obama and Fallon competed in pushups, tug of war, hula hoops and dodge ball. The score was tied, but Obama triumphed over Fallon in a potato sack race.
After Fallon was defeated, he said, "It doesn't matter if you won or lost," and the first lady replied, "It matters."
The competition between Fallon and Obama was taped Jan. 25, but aired during Fallon's talk show on Feb. 7.
We’re ready for FLOTUS’ workout tape. Can’t you just see that? LOL++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
According to the Chicago Tribune, Cape Girardeau, Mo native talk show host Rush Limbaugh weighed in on Clint Eastwood's Super Bowl ad for Chrysler, this week on his syndicated radio show deeming it "puke city" and suggesting that the actor/director got "suckered" into narrating the spot.
Limbaugh devoted a segment of his radio show to the "Halftime in
"A two-minute commercial is not a commercial: It's a PSA," Limbaugh opined, before tearing into the spot. The radio host suggested that the message of national unity contained in the ad was meant to benefit the Democratic party, which he believes will get "creamed" in the 2012 elections.
Limbaugh also gave Eastwood "the benefit of the doubt" -- by painting him as a dupe.
Limbaugh went on to offer his own parody of the ad, which urged listeners to "come together as one great nation and kick skinny butt back to
Limbaugh needs to go SAT down somewhere and pick some more boogers out of his nose. LOL.

THE BIG STL A&E NEWZ STORY IS:
There was a temporary delay of the ticket sale of one of the St Louis Rams 2012 games when the The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission challenged the legality of The Rams’ playing one of its home games in
This week, after the dispute, ticket sales for the Rams proposed
The CVC released a statement about working out a deal.
“The CVC and the Rams have been discussing a resolution to this issue and are trying to come up with a solution that benefits the
The CVC has reportedly offered to pay just under $60 million toward $124 million in stadium improvements. It’s not clear yet whether public money will be sought. The Rams have yet to respond publicly to the CVC offer. The CVC has given The Rams a March 1 deadline to approve the initial proposal.
Hmm, interesting that the statement said that “an amendment” must be generated and approved and finalized. So does this mean that the amendment was approved? If so, doesn’t that negate the whole lease in regards to the Rams having to stay in St Louis to play their games before the 2014 lease ends? Just a thought.
In unrelated Rams newz, The St. Louis Rams reportedly hired Frank Cignetti to be their quarterbacks coach—giving Sam Bradford a QB coach a year after neglecting the position entirely and having Bradford to learn plays on his own when he joined the team in 2010. He served as the Saints' quarterbacks coach in 2000 and held the same position with the 49ers—where he mentored another number-one overall quarterback, Alex Smith—in 2007.
Late last month, former St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo accepted a job with the New Orleans Saints to become their new defensive coordinator.
In more Rams newz, The St. Louis Rams may be close to landing their new general manager, according to Steve Wyche of the NFL Network. Owner Stan Kroenke will be weighing on the final decision soon, rounding out the team's new leadersip troika with head coach Jeff Fisher and COO Kevin Demoff.
Wyche reports that the team is down to "two or three" candidates for the position, citing a team source. They plan to parade those finalists in front of Kroenke in the coming days and have a GM hired next week sometime.
As far as who those finalists might be, that remains to be seen. Vikings personnel exec George Paton is the only candidate known to have interviewed twice since the Fisher hiring became official. Les Snead of the Falcons has interviewed twice as well, once prior to Fisher's hiring. Others to have interviewed include Tom Gamble of the 49ers and Steve Keim of the Cardinals .++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
American Idol auditioner and Pantoon Beach, Ill native Ethan Jones was at Mile 277 Bar and Grill in St Louis last Friday nite ,reportedly taking pictures with new fans who fell for the blond with the big smile and the sad backstory during his four minutes on national television on Americna Idol St Lousi auditions last Thursday nite. Nearby stood reportedly a security guard and his manager Johnny Holzum, leader of local band Well Hungarians, a band that Jones is a singer . The group had a gig at the nightclub that night.
There reportedly were calls that poured into Mile 277 through that day from people asking if Jones was performing with the band.The bar was filled to capacity, with people waiting hours for a table.

Why did Saturday Night Live cast member Paul Brittan leave the show? Why are their so many Tom Brady haters? Why did a Giants fan get mauled by several Patriots fans when he did the Cruz salsa dance after the Superbowl in Indy?Why is Joe Jackson selling MJ perfumes at a kiosk in Vegas?
