Scoop: London Breed videobombs Chris Rock on live TV

Following the Golden State Warriors’ win Monday night, comedian Chris Rock found one exuberant Warriors’ fan photo bombing him on live television.

Not any random Bay Area fan whooping in the background, it was San Francisco Board of Supervisors President London Breed (who’s often mentioned as a potential mayoral candidate).

“They’ll be back next year!” Breed said as she walked behind Rock, offering up a two-fingered peace sign to ABC-7 reporter Mike Shumann, who was interviewing Rock.

On Facebook, Breed’s friends said they saw Rock giving her a flirtatious look as she walked by.

“When I saw the video I said, ‘Oh shoot, that look,’” Breed told San Francisco Examiner columnist Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez. “I didn’t know he was looking me like that!”

After Breed’s brief appearance, she received a text that read, “Did you just photo bomb Chris Rock’s TV interview???”

Breed replied she didn’t have the number saved in her phone, and asked who was messaging her.

The texter replied, “(Oakland Mayor) Libby Schaaf … The Mayor of Dub Nation!”


Katy Perry seemingly will do just about anything to sell her new album — even rate her exes’ lovemaking skills publicly.

James Corden, who appeared on the pop star’s “Witness World Wide” promotional YouTube live stream, asked her to rank three ex-lovers by how good they are in bed.

She put Diplo, who she dated for several months in 2014, as the worst; then Orlando Bloom, her most recent boyfriend of about 10 months; and John Mayer, who she was with for about three years until 2015, as best.

Diplo’s social media response: “I don’t even remember having sex,” he quipped, sharing a photo of himself climbing on a pole above a crowd and the comment, “I won the bronze metal in sex Olympics.”

The guy who got away, Perry said, was Josh Groban.


Scarlett Johansson made good on her offer to escort Geraldine Dodd to the New York premiere of her movie “Rough Night.”

Dodd, 72, became famous in April after her grandson in Denver posted a photo of her taken in 1967, in which the “drunk as a skunk” 22-year-old looks remarkably like ScarJo.

The actress saw it, and invited her to see her upcoming movie and go drinking. Their visit on Monday was well-documented in red carpet photos in which the ladies sported matching Judith Leiber clutch purses with each other’s name on them.
