The pair was snapped (above) walking out a church service in Pacific Palisades, and that little smile on Jen’s face can’t hide some kind of mutual family happiness!

Across the entire Easter weekend, and across the entire world, The Fate of the Furious did an estimated $532.5 million in its first three days in theaters!!

WOW!! That includes a whopping $100.2 million domestically in a huge American opener, too!

But it’s the global total that everyone is looking at — if that number holds when the final numbers come in on Monday, Furious 8 will eclipse Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the BIGGEST WORLDWIDE OPENING EVER!!!

Star Wars took in $529 million total on its opening weekend and, well, Furious 8 looks like it just surpassed that. Impressive!!!

Universal Pictures distribution chief Duncan Clark said of the impressive opening:

“This franchise is showing no sign of wear and tear. The Fate of the Furious is satisfying audiences on many different levels.”

No kidding!!

And Universal’s domestic president Nick Carpou added:

“Considering this is the second-highest opening domestically out of eight films speaks to the fact that people continue to be interested in the storyline.”

Impressive!!!

The entire franchise has now grossed just under $4 billion globally, too — not too damn bad!!

New Yorkers Out And About On Unseasonably Warm Easter Sunday

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — With temperatures in some areas in the upper 80’s, New Yorkers made sure to get outside and enjoy what’s been an incredibly warm Easter Sunday.

Thousands of people flocked to the city’s outdoor spaces, unable to do the traditional sit-down holiday meal indoors this year.

From football to frisbee, to spike-ball, to sunbathing — the list of things to do this Easter Sunday was endless in Central Park.

One guy was particularly excited about his special chair.

“Have you ever seen that thing in the infomercial,” he asked CBS2’s Erin Logan. “You run in the wind with it. Then you put it down. It’s great. It’s comfortable, relaxing in the sun.”

Relaxing in their unusually dressed down Easter attire, some people added a bit of flair to their look by donning confetti eggs.

While some folks still rolled out their full-blown Easter meal picnic-style, others say this year’s holiday had a different feeling.

Feeling full just wasn’t necessary.

“I think it’s more about socializing in sort of a group enjoyment of the weather,” New Yorker Andrews Matthieu told CBS2.

Shannon Hall couldn’t agree more. She says she missed her family this year, but this weather made it a bit easier to swallow.

New Yorker Carlos Poste tells WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell he’s been waiting a long time for a day like this.

“It’s like, um, purgatory and then you realize in the middle of purgatory that there’s actually a door there and you can make your way through that door and through that door there’s strawberries and, like, sangria,” he said. “The whole time, you didn’t even know.”

After burning some calories, one group of people was getting ready for some bunny bars — rice crispy treats with some popcorn, M & M’s, and sprinkles.

Shannon Oleson says she feels right at home spending Easter just like she used to.

“I’m from Texas,” she said, “so Easter was always warm. But I’ve never had it in New York yet so it’s pretty awesome.”

Report: Bill O’Reilly’s Behavior Helped Push Megyn Kelly Away From Fox News

Leave it to Bill O’Reilly to fuck up his entire network as his career swirls in the toilet.

A new report out yesterday evening in the New York Times indicates that O’Reilly’s behavior specifically may have been the final straw that pushed Megyn Kelly from Fox News and into her new role at NBC News, according to insiders.

Related: Baldwin’s Impersonation Of O’Reilly Is EVERYTHING!

It all stems back to last year, when Kelly came out against then-Fox News head Roger Ailes, and on TV one morning as a guest of another network, O’Reilly roundly dismissed the accusations, belittled Kelly, and came in the defense of Fox as opposed to helping a fellow on-air anchor.

Sounds like Bill.

Megyn was allegedly so fed up from that exact moment that O’Reilly created, she used it as a final factor in her decision to leave Fox for NBC — and she apparently felt that, because of O’Reilly’s words, the culture at Fox News was never going to change, Ailes or not.

O’Reilly’s lawyer, Marc E. Kasowitz, responded to the NYT and this new report in a statement (below):

“Mr. O’Reilly cannot comment on what Megyn Kelly thought, or did or did not do, except to say she never raised any such issue with him, nor did anyone else. At this time, it is apparent to any objective observer that Mr. O’Reilly is being subjected to a malicious campaign intent on harming his reputation and family through speculation and innuendo.”

Well then.

Whatever the case, Kelly’s long gone now — and it appears that very soon, O’Reilly may be, too.

All’s well that ends well?

Ha!!!

Anonymous Rex: A Detective Story ($0.99 Kindle), by Eric Garcia [Villard / Random House]

“What would the world be like if the dinosaurs hadn’t gone extinct? As this very funny book shows, for one thing, L.A. would be even weirder than it is now.” –Dave Barry

Vincent Rubio, a Los Angeles private investigator, is down on his luck: He’s out of work. His car’s been repossessed. His partner has died under mysterious circumstances. And his tail just won’t stay put. Vincent is a dinosaur–a Velociraptor, to be precise. It seems the dinosaurs faked their extinction 65 million years ago and still roam the earth, disguised in convincing latex costumes that help them blend perfectly into human society. A heightened sense of smell allows the dinos to detect one another–Vincent’s got an odor like a tasty Cuban cigar.

When Vincent is called to investigate a two-bit case of arson at a hip dino nightclub, he discovers something much more sinister, which lures him back to New York City–the scene of his partner’s death and a dangerous nexus of dinosaur and human intermingling.

Will Vincent solve the mystery of his partner’s death? Will a gorgeous blond chanteuse discover his true identity, jeopardizing both their lives? Will Vincent be able to conquer his dangerous addiction to basil, or will he wind up in Herba-holics Anonymous? Will he find true love, or resort to crumpled issues of Stegolicious?

Somewhere between Jurassic Park and L.A. Confidential lies Eric Garcia’s Anonymous Rex, one of the smartest, wittiest, and most entertaining debuts this side of the Ice Age.
