Celebrity Scoop – 10/12/2018


Jimmy Fallon has finally visited an Olive Garden restaurant. At the top of the show last night, the Tonight Show host explained that during Post Malone’s appearance on the show last week, Fallon admitted that he had never been to an Olive Garden. Malone, who goes there for every life milestone moment, told Fallon that the news “saddened” him – and so the pair ended up at the Times Square Olive Garden after the show.

Once there, Fallon was shocked to learn that he could not only get a free wine sample, but also free breadsticks and unlimited salad. “How do you guys make money?” he asked the waitress.

Post showed Fallon how to eat Olive Garden breadsticks “Post Malone-style,” which involves taking a bite and putting hunks of butter on it.

When Post asked for a “laundry basket of croutons” with the salad, Fallon emerged from the kitchen with an actual laundry basket of the toasted bread.

The two ordered “extra crispy chicken parm,” per the rapper’s suggestion, and after the meal Fallon told the waitress it was his dining companion’s birthday so they could also get a complimentary slice of cake delivered to their table.

The best was yet to come. Jimmy explained to Post a few years ago, Olive Garden president Dave George officially turned over the company’s old slogan to Fallon: “When You’re Here, You’re Family.” Fallon then gave the slogan to Post, who was visibly moved as they signed the contract.

STEVE CARELL SAYS THE OFFICE REVIVAL WON’T HAPPEN: But not for the reason you may think. Steve Carell says Michael Scott’s sense of humor just wouldn’t fly today. He tells Esquire: “Because The Office is on Netflix and replaying, a lot more people have seen it recently. And I think because of that there’s been a resurgence in interest in the show, and talk about bringing it back. But apart from the fact that I just don’t think that’s a good idea, it might be impossible to do that show today and have people accept it the way it was accepted 10 years ago. The climate’s different.” He notes that Michael Scott’s entire character is “predicated on inappropriate behavior.”
