RELATIONSHIP EXPERT AND LIFE COACH JANICE CHRISTOPHER-

Swedish skier Henrik Harlaut carries an EGG in his pants, for good luck when he competes. Yesterday in the men's ski slopestyle qualifier, he FELL . . . so of course the announcer had to make a joke about how he broke the egg. Then his ginormous pants fell around his knees.
So what are the Olympians doing when they’re not competing? Hooking up with other Olympians. Yeah. There’s a hook-up app called Tinder and supposedly it’s huge among the athletes. It shows you the profile of people that are single around you, you can scroll and “like” or “reject” them- If you mutually like each other, it gives you the opportunity to chat and meet up. According to 23-year-old Jamie Anderson, gold-medal snowboarder, she says it brings hooking up to the “next level”. She was so distracted by meeting boys that she had to delete the app- which clearly worked since she won gold in slopestyle on Sunday.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon just announced a contest where you can win a chance to kick it with them in Hollywood. If you donate to their two charities you and a friend can go hang out with them. Here’s what they had to say:
Gary Oldman is not only starring in the new Robocop movie, he’s also rapping. Well, kind of. In a recent interview he decided to rap the lyrics to Pitbull and Kehsa’s “Timber”.
Usually when we talk about Drake, it’s all good stuff- Well, he’s under some serious scrutiny because he was mad that he was promised the cover of Rolling Stone but instead they gave it to Philip Seymour Hoffman- Now, if you’ve been living under a rock, Philip Seymour Hoffman DIED. Obviously Drake gave this interview before he died, but still, he DIED. Drake then tweeted "I'm disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil. ???" He then deleted that tweet and wrote a new one that said He’s done giving interviews for magazines. He just wants to give his music to the people, it’s the only way his message gets across accurately.
THREE PEOPLE HAVING A WORST WEEK THAN YOU:
Lacinda Robinson from Denver had her house broken into last week, and a bunch of stuff was stolen. So she went to a McDonald's nearby to wait for police . . . and the thieves walked up and tried to sell HER OWN STUFF back to her. More here.
A 10-year old boy in Norway packed up his 18-month old sister in the family’s car and took off with her while his parents were sleeping. He was trying to get to his grandparents house that was 68 miles away- He made is six miles before he crashed into a ditch- When police arrived, he told them that he was a dwarf and left his license at home. Luckily both he and his sister were unharmed- but his parents freaked out when they woke up and realized both the kids were gone. Those parents are definitely having a worse week than you. More here.
And a Valentine’s Day themed story- Kind of. A woman got back at her cheating boyfriend by taking a scalpel and carefully cutting off the piece of skin that had a tattoo with his name on it off her arm- She put it in a jar, carefully wrapped it and mailed it to her cheating ex who is currently living with the woman he was having an affair with. She’s definitely having a worse Valentine’s Day than you. Well, certainly more painful. More here.
