LaughFest sets world record for fake mustaches story image
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - LaughFest continues Friday in Grand Rapids  after setting a new world record Thursday night.

More than 1,500 people showed up wearing fake mustaches.

The previous record was set by the St. Louis Rams last fall with more than 600 people slapping on fake mustaches.   

LaughFest runs through March 17th, featuring everything from big name comedians to family friendly shows.

The proceeds benefit Gilda's Club Grand Rapids.

The event is also helping out another good cause. During the festival Goodwill Industries will be giving away 2,500 laundry bags to people attending some of the community showcase shows.

They ask that people then fill those bags with gently used donations and then return them to any local Goodwill.

SUGE KNIGHT - COURT, HOSPITAL

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- From court to the hospital. For the fifth time since his arrest in February, Suge (SHUG) Knight ended a visit to the court with a trip to the ER. He was taken to a hospital yesterday soon after a judge ruled he must stand trial for murder and attempted murder. Prosecutors convinced a judge that there was enough evidence to try Knight on charges stemming from a January incident in which he ran down two men with his pickup truck, killing one of them. No word on what's wrong with Knight now, or how he's doing. Knight and his lawyers have complained about various health problems since his arrest. Knight seemed OK during the court hearing. And before word came that he'd been hospitalized again, his fiancee said Knight's health had been improving.

A medical crisis -- again -- for Suge Knight. AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel has the story.

SONY DOCUMENTS ARCHIVED ON WIKILEAKS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Just when Sony thought it had put a huge cyber hacking behind it, the company faces a new round of scrutiny, thanks to WikiLeaks. The whistleblower site has posted hundreds of thousands of emails and documents from the hacking. And the docs are in a searchable archive. The information had been available before -- but the move by WikiLeaks makes it easier for casual computer users to see what Sony has been up to. As you can imagine, Sony is not pleased. But WikiLeaks officials say the information should be made public so people can get to see how companies like Sony operate.

AP Entertainment Correspondent Oscar Wells Gabriel reports more documents from the Sony hacking have been made public -- lots more, in fact.

DAVID LETTERMAN-CAPITOL GYROCOPTER

NEW YORK (AP) -- In just about a month, David Letterman and his signature Top 10 List will be history. But the soon-to-retire talk show host isn't letting a target like the U.S. Capitol gyrocopter landing go unnoticed. Last night, on CBS' "Late Show," Letterman did the Top 10 questions to ask yourself before landing a gyrocopter on the United States Capitol lawn. Some of them:

No. 8, "Should I do this during Secret Service happy hour?"

No. 2, "Should I land somewhere unguarded, like the White House?"

And No. 1, "Will I be the only person who actually did something in Washington today?"

"STAR WARS" TRAILER

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Some "Star Wars" fans have gotten a sneak peak of what "the force" has in store. People attending the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California got to see a trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." The clip from the upcoming movie features the wreckage of a star destroyer, X-Wing battles -- and Harrison Ford as Han Solo. At the end of the trailer, Solo says: "Chewie we're home." That prompted screams and cheers from the audience at the Anaheim Convention Center. The new movie is due out in December.

Lucasfilm contractor Michael McMaster says the BB-8 droid that appears in the new Star Wars film actually exists, it's not a computer-generated image.

JIMMY FALLON - LIP SYNC

NEW YORK (AP) -- Jimmy Fallon's TV home is NBC. But he had to find a new home for his new show based on the lip sync battles he features on the "Tonight" show. Fallon pitched it to NBC -- but was turned down. Spike TV picked it up and it's become a hit. How big a hit? A clip of actress Anne Hathaway doing Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" has been seen more than 10 million times online since it first aired last week.

KIM RICHARDS - ARREST

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- One of the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" has been busted. Kim Richards has been taken in on suspicion of being drunk in public. A sheriff's lieutenant tells ABC News that Richards was arrested yesterday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel after security guards said she refused to leave a restaurant -- and holed herself up in a bathroom. Police say she was belligerent, had slurred speech, cursed at officers -- and kicked one in the leg. Richards has acknowledged having problems with booze before.

SARAH JESSICA PARKER - NEW SHOW

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sarah Jessica Parker has a new show on HBO -- this time, a comedy about martial problems. She will star in a half-hour series called "Divorce." Parker plays a woman who finds getting out of a marriage is harder than she first thought. Also in the cast are Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam. No word on when the show will make its debut.

DR. OZ -- COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some doctors say the best prescription for Columbia University -- is to ditch Dr. Oz. The TV doctor is under fire because of what the doctors call his "egregious lack of integrity." The doctors are on Oz's case for hawking weight-loss supplements -- ones the doctors feel are bogus. The docs want Columbia to cut Oz from its faculty. But the Ivy League school says it won't kick him to the curb. Columbia says it is "committed to the principle of academic freedom." Last year, Oz was before a U.S. Senate panel that claimed he endorsed products that were medically unsound. Oz acknowledged some of the products he urged viewers to use lacked the science to back up the weight-loss claims.

AP correspondent Jackie Quinn reports that Dr. Mehmet Oz remains on the faculty of Columbia University, despite calls from some doctors that he should be removed.

AP correspondent Jackie Quinn reports there have been calls for Dr. Mehmet Oz to be removed from the medical faculty of Columbia University, but the school has not acted on that request.
