Here's the Scoop...

I contributed to the weekend box office with a ticket to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It didn't live up to the hype. I think it was a mess of a movie, but that's just me. How did Hollywood do this weekend? Let's see...

'Disney's animated adventure Moana is the No. 1 movie in North America for a second, consecutive weekend, with $28.4 million according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

Coming in at No. 2 is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with $18.5 million, followed by Arrival at No. 3 with $7.3 million, Allied at No. 4 with $7 million and Doctor Strange at No. 5 with $6.5 million.

Rounding out the top tier are Trolls at No. 6 with $4.6 million, Hacksaw Ridge at No. 7 with $3.4 million, Bad Santa 2 at No.8 with $3.3 million, Incarnate at No. 9 with $2.7 million and Almost Christmas at No. 10 with $2.5 million.

Be Well,

Kanye West released from hospital, but not back home with family yet
Rapper Kanye West has been released from the hospital, but continues to undergo outpatient care for undisclosed mental health issues.

People magazine said West is not currently living with his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, and their two children -- North, 3, and Saint, 11 months.

West began treatment at UCLA's Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital in late November after several on-stage rants and his abrupt cancellation of his concert tour.

"He is receiving outpatient care somewhere else with a medical team," a source told People magazine about where he is now. "Kim still seems concerned, but is supportive. They don't know for how long Kanye will need outpatient care."

TMZ said West has long suffered from psychological issues controllable by medication, but he for some reason deviated from the prescribed dosage, sparking his erratic behavior.

Doctors were able to stabilize him while he was hospitalized, but since he has been discharged, he is once again responsible for taking the proper amounts of his medications.

Which Oscar winner surprised University of Texas safe rides users?

University of Texas at Austin students using the campus' safe walking service were treated to golf cart rides from an unexpected driver -- Matthew McConaughey.

Students who used the SURE Walk service, which stands for Students United for Rape Elimination, were expecting a volunteer to accompany them on their nighttime walks earlier this week, but they were instead treated to golf cart rides from the Oscar-winning actor and 1993 University of Texas at Austin alumnus.

A video posted to Facebook by the school's student government shows the shocked reactions of the students who received rides from McConaughey.

"Just in case you couldn't get enough of campus safety, SURE Walk, and that one awesome alumnus who came to visit us last night, here is a short clip of Matthew McConaughey reminding students of the importance of staying safe on our campus," the Facebook post reads.
