The Oakland Raiders announced yesterday that Bakersfield Christian HS grad Derek Carr will be their starting quarterback when the NFL season opens Sunday against the New York Jets. He is the first rookie QB to start the season-opener for the Raiders EVER!

He was quite a player at BCHS..

Then, at Fresno State..


His brother, David, started his first game as a rookie quarterback for the Houston Texans in 2002..

According to a spokesperson, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married Saturday in France.

The private ceremony was attended by family and friends.

The couple's six children took part in the ceremony--Jolie walked down the aisle with sons Maddox and Pax, Zahara and Vivienne threw petals and Shiloh and Knox were the ring-bearers.

Here are the first photos..

I thought it was funny.

While the Television Academy's Chairman gave his annual speech to the Emmy audience last night, he was accompanied by Modern Family-star Sofia Vergara, who was placed on a spinning-pedestal. While slowly turning, she smiled & vamped & preened.

Immediately afterward, social media blew-up, suggesting it was "sexist" and she was being "objectified".

I think a beautiful woman, who has a sense of humor and can make fun of herself is even more beautiful. And Sofia is beautiful!

Were you offended?

His name is Kaycee. He is Jackie Chan's son and last week he was arrested, during a big drug-crackdown in China, with three-and-a-half ounces of marijuana.

Yesterday, his dad released a letter, saying he is "very ashamed" of his son. He also said he "failed as a father" and "the person who is most heart-broken of all is his mother".

He faces up to three-years in a Chinese prison.

Justin Timberlake's concert tour rolled through Cali last-week and while he was in San Jose, he stopped the show to sing "Happy Birthday" to an eight-year-old fan with autism.

The entire crowd sang along. Pretty cool!

Robin Williams's 25-year-old daughter Zelda announced yesterday that she is leaving social media because of hurtful messages written about her father, who died of an apparent suicide on Monday.

She wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, "I will be leaving this account for a bit while I heal and decide if I'll be deleting it or not. In this difficult time, please try to be respectful of the accounts of myself, my family and my friends. Mining our accounts for photos of dad, or judging me on the number of them is cruel and unnecessary. The real private moments I shared with him were precious, quiet, and believe it or not, not full of photos or 'selfies.' I shared him with a world where everyone was taking their photo with him, but I was lucky enough to spend time with him without cameras too."
