The Word: Naked photos of Heather Morris? Yawn

Nude photo “scandals” are becoming about as fun to write about as celebrity divorces. (Meaning: They’re becoming a dime a dozen.)

The latest celebrity to fall victim to a phone hacking scandal? “Glee” star Heather Morris. A week after Olivia Munn and “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks were hacked, naked photos of Morris in various risque, naked poses were leaked on Sunday night. There’s been no comment from Morris’ team regarding the leak.

Before I jump into a few thoughts on this: Yes, I’m paid to think about the implications of nudie pics, and yes, my parents are very proud of me. Now then. Why are these pictures always nude self-portraits? And where are the pics they (should) be receiving in return? Honestly, by now aren’t you all as bored of these “leaks” as I am? The only way this news will become exciting again is when a star’s phone gets hacked and it’ll have nude photos of other people on it.

What Ferrell thought about Lohan

So just what did one of the most famous veterans of “Saturday Night Live” think about Lindsay Lohan’s infamous hosting ability two weeks ago? To hear Will Ferrell tell it, she didn’t do as badly as everyone thinks.

“I only saw little blips on the monologue,” said the star during an interview with Metro to promote his new movie, “Casa de Mi Padre.” “It seemed fine. I mean, I think anytime you can poke fun at yourself, I think the audience totally appreciates it and finds it endearing. I thought it was a good, funny move on her part.”

As for Ferrell returning to “SNL” for a hosting gig? It’s always a possibility.

“You know, we’re always being asked, every year, and it just depends. [I’m] always up for it, but it’s just a question of schedule,” he says.
