A federal judge Friday struck down Michigan's ban on gay marriage.

As such, the state becomes the 18th in the nation to allow gays and lesbians to join in legal matrimony just like their heterosexual counterparts.

Mich Marriage

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette immediately filed for an emergency request for a stay of the ruling in the late afternoon Friday.

Schuette said that "Michigan voters enshrined that decision in our state constitution, and their will should stand and be respected."

"In 2004 the citizens of Michigan recognized that diversity in parenting is best for kids and families because moms and dads are not interchangeable."

It's unclear if that stay will be granted.

Finally, something good comes out of Georgia politics!

Congressman John Lewis dancing to "Happy" by Pharrell might be the best thing to happen this legislative session. 

Yesterday, the International Day of Happiness, was also John Lewis' birthday. The last remaining member of the Civil Rights Movement's Big Six turned 74 recently and gathered with his staffers for a belated birthday celebration during which "Happy" was played.

The Congressman began dancing and declared "Happy" "his song." It's everybody's song, Congressman. It's probably a good enough song to bring about world peace.

Sick of your mom nagging you to register for health insurance before the March 31 deadline? Well, Michelle Obama and other celebrity moms are here to do it instead!

The First Lady called upon the mothers of Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Jonah Hill and Adam Levine to remind people of the Obamacare registration deadline.

Fun trivia from the "I Luh Ya PaPi" video vixen's mom, Guadalupe: "Jennifer walked at eight months. She was climbing out of her crib when she was a year old."

"At one point, I thought, 'Maybe she should be a gymnast.'"

And this from The Wolf of Wall Street star Jonah Hill's mother, Sharon Feldstein: "Jonah was a prankster ... Jonah flooded the elementary school."

The point? Moms put up with a lot of nonsense from their kids, which is inevitable, but being uninsured shouldn't be one of the things they worry about.

Turns out, Michelle Obama is not the only member of the First Family who can make us crack up.

Perhaps in response to his wife appearing on The Tonight Show, President Barack Obama is actually the guest on the latest edition of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis.

In a hilarious back and forth with the actor, Obama mocks Galifianakis for The Hangover III; jokes about the host's weight; and then spends awhile plugging The Affordable Care Act.

This is the latest pop culture appearance by the President, who introduced Cosmos on Fox Sunday night and who recently slow-jammed with Jimmy Fallon.

Obama joins a Between Two Ferns guest list that includes Justin Bieber, Tobey Maguire, Jennifer Aniston and James Franco - and the segment is clearly very funny...

... but is appropriate for a sitting President to stop by a show that once also welcomed Tila Tequila?

You tell us: What do you think of Barack Obama being a guest on Between Two Ferns?

Liz Wahl, an anchor on state-funded Russia Today, shocked viewers last night when she took a stand against President Vladimir Putin… by resigning on air!

"I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin," Wahl said at the end of her broadcast, following a discussion of the "ethical and moral challenges" she has faced on the Russia Today team. 

Wahl hails from a family who escaped Soviet rule during the 1956 Hungarian revolution and is the daughter of a U.S. veteran.

"I'm proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth," Wahl said. "And that is why, after this newscast, I'm resigning."

Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.

And the host held little back when it came to Ford's history of crack smoking, drinking and acting in general like a character on Saturday Night Live.

Kimmel kicked off the interview by saying many Canadians were upset Ford was even appearing, referring to him on Twitter as a "drunk, racist, homophobe" on that social network.

The comedian also compared Ford to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcett... wondered if the giant turkey ever exercised... and suggested to the red and sweaty politician that there’s no shame in getting help for drinking/drug problems.

It was quite the appearance all around. Relive all four segments of it now:

Rob Ford appears here on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It's as entertaining as you'd imagine it to be.

Kimmel is on fire these days, as his post-Academy Awards special earned the talk show emcee record ratings.

An alleged Marilyn Monroe sex tape is ready to hit the open market, with former President John F. Kennedy AND his brother Robert F. Kennedy in co-starring roles.

It's not entirely clear if JFK and RFK tag-teamed Marilyn Monroe at the same time, or if the same video just happens to contain separate trysts with the brothers.

Either way, former Hollywood bodyguard William Castleberry says it's legit, and was just seized from his home along with other property as a result of a lawsuit.

Marilyn Monroe Playboy

The Marilyn Monroe sex tape is going to auction Tuesday to cover a $200,000 court judgment against him, unless he can come up with that sum beforehand.

No offense William ... but we're not exactly pulling for you here.

Castleberry won't say where or how he got the film, but says he always kept it secret out of respect for her ex-husband Joe DiMaggio, who he says was a good friend.

The steamy footage has never before been seen ... obviously.

Film director and New York City native Spike Lee went off on an expletive-filled rant against gentrification in the nation's biggest metro area this week.

Lee grew up in the Ft. Greene, Brooklyn, where his parents still live.

Spike

In response to a question at an African American History Month lecture Tuesday at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, the 56-year-old film great said:

"Why does it take an influx of white New Yorkers into the South Bronx, in Harlem, in Bed Stuy, in Brown Heights, for the facilities to get better?"

Explaining this quote, he told Anderson Cooper, "My problem is, when you move into a neighborhood, have some respect for the history, for the culture."

To stay a great city, Lee said NYC needs more affordable housing.

He also offered these choice, NSFW quotes on the subject ...

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has vetoed legislation that would've allowed state businesses to discriminate against same-sex couples on religious grounds.

She said the Arizona "religious freedom" bill, which became a national talking point, had "the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve."

"Senate Bill 1062 does not address a specific or present concern related to religious liberty in Arizona," she said of the controversial bill passed this month.

"I have not heard one example of business owners' religious liberty [being] violated."

Brewer said she understands proponents' position, but believes passing such a bill would devastatingly divide Arizona in ways no one would ever want.

The Arizona state legislature passed the bill, known as SB 1062, last week.

Almost as soon as it did, it came under intense criticism from activists, lawmakers and business interests both in Arizona and across the nation.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) faces a pressing decision about a bill on her desk that has prompted a national debate over religious and gay rights.

Arizona's State Legislature passed a bill last week allowing businesses whose owners cite sincerely held religious beliefs to deny service to gays.

It allows any business, church or person to cite this new law as a defense in any action brought by the government or individual claiming discrimination.

Late Tuesday night, Brewer wasn't tipping her hand. The Governor Tweeted:

"I assure you, as always, I will do the right thing for the State of Arizona."

The legislation has caused a national uproar, debate and controversy.

Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans, have publicly stated their opposition, joining the state's Democratic House members.
