Brave New Jersey Weatherman Not Afraid to Apologize for Botching Blizzard Forecast

Blizzard of 2015 Weatherman Apologizes

Yesterday, the Northeast braced itself for a potentially historic snowstorm that promised over two feet of snow, power outages, and overall hysteria. Eastern Long Island and parts of Connecticut and Rhode Island have seen large totals, but most of New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia is sitting pretty after Juno. So why do meteorologists create such widespread panic and allow for mob mentality to develop inside local grocery stores? At least one weatherman has the balls to admit when he’s wrong.

Gary Szatkowski, Meteorologist-In-Charge at the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly, N.J., gave some Twitter real talk early Tuesday, as complaints of the storm’s failure to meet expectations in Philly hit social media.

Are pigs flying? Is this guy apologizing for messing up his job? Usually weather reporters try to spin a botched storm forecast with tales of the elusive “black ice” and “thundersnow.” Gary, we salute you and your honesty, and we invite you to bingewatch Game of Thrones with us while eating nachos on this fine Tuesday. (Hey, we still have a snow day.)

The 10 Raciest ‘Saturday Night Live’ Moments of All Time

raciest-snl-lead-3

Saturday Night Live is celebrating its 40th anniversary on February 15, and VH1 Classic is throwing the marathon of a lifetime. Beginning tomorrow, the network will air “SNL Rewind: 2015- 1975 Mega Marathon,” which will feature 433 hours of episodes, over the course of 19 days (Jan. 28-Feb. 15). Basically, if you’re an SNL stan, clear your schedule, because this is your wet dream come true.

But now shouldn’t be the only time SNL’s gotten you excited. Forty years means hundreds of episodes worth of the sexiest, or most uncomfortable (depending on your disposition), moments that live television has to offer. Now, kick off your nostalgia trip and get your blood racing with the 10 raciest moments in Saturday Night Live history.

Jane Curtin Flashes the Camera on Weekend Update (Season 2, Episode 13)

As the first female Weekend Update host, Jane Curtin took a moment to address her haters. Their biggest critique? She wasn’t Chevy Chase, the man she replaced. Starting her segment, Curtin read aloud a fan letter, one out of dozens apparently, blaming her for SNL‘s decline and claiming to miss Chase’s “sexiness.” Like a big middle finger to Chevy stans, Curtin ripped her shirt wide open on live television, flashing her lacy bra. Sexy enough for you, America?

Dan Aykroyd Propositions Margot Kidder as Male Prostitute, Fred Garvin (Season 4, Episode 15)

Here, Dan Aykroyd propositions host Margot Kidder, whose character is visited by a male strumpet in her hotel room as a gift for doing business in the city. Ripe with sexual innuendos, Garvin says he’s there to “roger” her “roundly” and flashes his “backseat driver’s license.” She refuses at first, but his persistence eventually works. Just as he climbs into bed with her, sans pants, his pimp Slick (Garrett Morris) swaggers through the door and climbs into bed with the clearly unnerved Kidder. Just think of all the thinkpieces this sketch would’ve inspired today.

The Word “Penis” Is Said 43 Times in Matthew Broderick’s “Nude Beach” Sketch (Season 14, Episode 2)

Hearing the word “penis” uttered 43 times was not a common thing in 1988, which is why this sketch (written by Conan O’Brien) was struck down twice before it made it on air. About a group of men commenting on each other’s genitalia at a nude beach, the sketch was originally written for Carl Weathers‘ episode, only to be moved to Tom Hanks‘ episode later in the season. This time, the sketch made it all the way to dress rehearsal, but was cut from the live show. It finally aired during the Matthew Broderick episode, which allegedly received thousands of letters of complaints.

Celebrity Plastic Surgeon Explains Kylie Jenner’s Lips and How Stars Get Red Carpet Ready

Team Celeb Plastic Surgery

Kylie Jenner‘s face has drastically changed in recent years. And after publicly denying plastic surgery rumors, we need to figure out what was really going on.

“I just don’t really see how that could be a very impressive makeup job,” says New York-based facial plastic surgeon Dr. Philip Miller. “It’s certainly within the realm of what fillers could do, although if it is, within seven months you should see them actually getting smaller unless she continues to get more and more injections. If it’s an implant, you won’t see much change at all unless there is some type of complication associated with the implant, which would require her to have it removed.”

In addition to his take on Jenner, the celebrity doctor gave us details on the go-to procedures stars request leading up to a red carpet event and what kind of treatment will help you look like your favorite celeb.

What is the most popular procedure among celebrities?
Botox and fillers by far.

Do you often get last minute requests before big events?
It can’t be too last minute because Botox requires 12 hours to seven days for it to kick in. But fillers are immediate in their lips and cheeks, so that can be last minute.

What are some current Hollywood fads?
Non-invasive treatments. You don’t need any anesthesia to get it, and it tightens the skin [and] neck. Botox or any of the fillers are huge and they can be done from ages 25 to 65. The minimally invasive type of micro-lifts, where incisions are made in and around the ear and under the skin so you look as good as you do with a ponytail, are also very popular.

Would you consider yourself as a part of a celebrity’s team?
Yes.

What are some misconceptions about plastic surgery?
That it’s fake, unsafe, readily noticeable. You can look refreshed, less tired, and happier, but they won’t necessarily recognize it as being due to plastic surgery, if done correctly. Even a drastic change, you’d be amazed at how many people do not recognize that. [Another] is that it’s only for older individuals. We don’t operate on age, we operate on findings.

If I were to get something done at age 18, what would that look like 20 to 30 years down the line?
It all depends on what you do and where you do it and who does it. You can have the fillers put into the lips, for example, and within a year, they’re gone. Literally with no residual effect at all. You can put permanent fillers in your lips, and while it may look great for years, even forever, there are times when permanent injectable material all of a sudden grows 20 years later and you get these horribly misshapen overly swollen lips that have to be surgically corrected. So it really ranges.

Do you think Kylie Jenner has had lip injections?
It’s certainly within the realm of what fillers could do. Although if it is, within seven months you should see them actually getting smaller unless she continues to get more and more injections. If it’s an implant, you won’t see much change at all unless there is some type of complication associated with the implant, which would require her to have it be removed. I don’t really see how that could be a very impressive makeup job.
