Another suggestion? "If you're Irish, or just white and violent, I have the St. Paddy's place for you. New York's hottest Irish club is 'Off to Church, Mother,'" he said, adding, "This place has everything: Peeps, TED Talks, Roman J. Israel, Esq., and be sure to hit the dance floor and do a jig with Ireland' s hottest Farrah-cauns — leprechauns that look like Farrah Fawcett."

“You don’t drink beer?” Colbert asked.

“Rarely,” Brady said.

But when Colbert pulled out two glasses of beer, the contest was real.

“I was a pretty good beer-chugger back in the day,” Brady said. “Are we competing?”

“I don’t know if you’re a competitive guy,” Colbert said.

He was. Brady dusted the talk show host easily.

O.J. Simpson's 'hypothetical’ confession causes social media furor

Nearly 24 years after the murder of O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife and her friend, the public continues to be alternately fascinated and revolted by the former NFL star-turned-actor’s actions on the night of June 12, 1994.

>> Read more trending news

Sunday night, Fox aired an interview that had been shelved since 2006. In the two-hour special, “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?” Simpson “hypothetically” walks publisher Judith Regan through the events that culminated with the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

After a contentious and controversial trial, Simpson was acquitted of both murders on Oct. 3, 1995. On Sunday, an interview was aired in which he revealed details from what he called a hypothetical scenario that he also laid out in his book “If I Did It.”

The show caused a great deal of buzz on social media as posters used the hashtag #DidOJConfess during the broadcast, Fox reported.

“The interview was a narcissist cesspool,” JRM tweeted.

“Congress should pass legislation to exclude murder and other violent crimes from our double jeopardy laws and call it ‘Nicole's Law’ after Nicole Brown Simpson,” Aaron Clark tweeted.. 

Others remained convinced of Simpson’s innocence.

“OJ Simpson was innocent… the gloves didn’t fit,” Twitter poster Don Corleone wrote.

“Can they let this man Live please!” Sluweekay wrote.

Years later, the Simpson case remains a polarizing one. The audacity of the interview, even one that is now a dozen years old, remains stunning.

Here is the verdict from the trial, read by the jury foreman on Oct. 3, 1995:

Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are in “advanced negotiations,” and the number of episodes and formats for the shows have not been finalized, the Times reported. How much the Obamas will be paid also has not been disclosed.

Sources said programming is expected to focus upon inspirational stories, the Times reported. However, the shows also would give the former president an unfiltered way to communicate with the public and supplement his Twitter account and Facebook page.

“President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire,” Eric Schultz, a senior adviser to the former president, told the Times. “Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories.”

‘House of Cards’ final season teaser is out; it’s Robin Wright’s turn now

After a scandal and a delay, the final season of “House of Cards” will soon be hitting our televisions.

The first teaser trailer from Netflix was released during the Oscars broadcast Sunday night, Entertainment Weekly reported.

The advertisement ends with Robin Wright behind the desk in the Oval Office left vacant by Kevin Spacey.

Spacey was fired from the series after he was accused of sexual misconduct by actor Anthony Rapp and others, E News reported. Production on the series had been suspended as creators reworked the show without Spacey’s Frank Underwood.

Netflix had said it would not produce the show if Spacey continued as part of the cast.

“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of “House of Cards” that includes Kevin Spacey. We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show,” Netflix said in a statement last year. It also canceled the planned film “Gore,” in which Spacey starred and also produced, E News reported.  

Filming resumed in January.

A premiere date hasn’t been released, but it is expected to air this fall, Entertainment Weekly reported.

This year, Wright is joined in the sixth and final season by Michael Kelly, Diane Lane, Greg Kinnear and Constance Zimmer.

During the opener Saturday night, the show's writers did make an amusing – if not totally over-the-top – analogy between the White House and a Waffle House at 2 a.m.

Turning to the subject of his planned tariffs on aluminum and steel, Baldwin-as-Trump said: “Both sides hated it. I don’t care. I said I was going to run this country like a business. That business is a Waffle House at 2 a.m. Crazies everywhere, staff walking out in the middle of their shift, managers taking money out of the cash register to pay off the Russian mob.”

Ronda Rousey 'slapped' during WWE appearance

You just know that the WWE tries to cover every angle in order to generate heat among its legion of professional wrestling fans.

>> Read more trending news

Thanks to Kurt Angle, the storyline about former UFC champion Ronda Rousey has already been raised a notch, the New Zealand Herald reported.

Rousey, the former UFC bantamweight champion, made a dramatic return in the WWE’s Elimination Chamber event in Las Vegas on Sunday night. She came into the ring during the pay-per-view event to sign her contract with the WWE. 

After some polarizing comments by Angle, Rousey produced a viral moment when she capped her contract signing by piledriving WWE chief executive Triple H through a table, CBS Sports reported. That resulted in what was called an “unscripted” slap of Rousey by WWE deputy commissioner Stephanie McMahon, who is Triple H’s wife.

Was it really unscripted? One never knows in pro wrestling.

The celebration of Rousey started innocently enough. She took the microphone from McMahon and was near tears as the Vegas crowd chanted her name, the Herald reported. Triple H added some praise for Rousey and invited her to sign her deal on live television.

Then Angle, the general manager of Raw, interrupted the feelgood moment by sharing alleged backstage comments by Triple H -- “Three years in the making and now we own (her)” -- and McMahon (“Ronda is a has-been, and I could take her.”), CBS Sports reported.

Rousey stared down Triple H before delivering the piledriver, and then after taking the slap from McMahon, signed the contract and dropped it onto Triple H’s body, CBS Sports reported.

That will guarantee that Rousey will participate in WrestleMania 34 on April 8 in New Orleans, probably in a mixed tag-team match, CBS Sports reported. 

That angle should bring plenty of heat.
