NFL investigating if Patriots used deflated footballs in AFC Championship game
The NFL has confirmed it is looking into charges the New England Patriots cheated Sunday night when they clinched a trip to Super Bowl Sunday by using deflated footballs. “The NFL is investigating the possibility,” Bob Kravitz, of WTHR, tweeted, adding that, “at one point the officials took a ball out of play and weighed it.” If the Patriots did cheat, it would not be the first time. The team was penalized a first-round draft pick, fined $250,000 and head coach Belichick was personally fined $500,000 after an investigation by the NFL determined the team had illegally videotaped their opponents hand signals during a 2007 game.

Angelina Jolie & Jennifer Aniston Seen in the Same Room, at First Event Attended by Both Stars in 5 Years
That’s right, the two were photographed in the same room, breathing the same air, for the first time in more than five years. Why so long? Well, Jolie has attended more movie events in general, as she’s more known as a film actress, whereas Aniston is more famous for her 10-season run on Friends. And also possibly because of, you know, that whole Brad Pitt thing. Aniston praised Jolie’s movie in an interview with Entertainment Tonight .”Unbroken is so beautiful and wonderful and [Jolie] did such a gorgeous job,” she said. “I think it’s time people stop with that petty B.S. and start celebrating great work and stop with the petty kind of silliness.” Get the full story here.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Hit the Slopes in Utah
Kimye arrived in Utah, perhaps for the Sundance Film Festival, but the duo headed straight to the mountains for some skiing and snowboarding. Kim had to try on a few new accessories she’s not used to wearing. “My friends made me wear a helmet & I wasn’t happy about it,” she joked on Twitter. “But I feel it’s more safe & I’m into it if you can’t tell.” At least she could wear a fashionable fur coat that kept her ears and head warm. Kim stayed close to her man who looked like a pro in his winter wear. Get the full story here.
Vanessa Hudgens & Julianne Hough will Star in Fox’s ‘Grease’
The event will mark Fox’s entry into the primetime event musical game following NBC’s hugely successful The Sound of Music Live in 2013 and last December’s rather disappointing Peter Pan. Since 1978’s Grease is a more contemporary title than either of NBC’s shows, plus has a high-school setting and popular songbook, Fox is well positioned to draw a big audience. Casting Grease has been tricky, however, with several big names having been approached over the last several months. Julianne Hough will star as summer lover Sandy Olsson and Hudgens has been cast as her scene-stealing bad-girl friend Rizzo. Still not cast: The show’s male lead Danny Zuko. Get the full story here.
