The Gist:

  • Giants third-string quarterback Tommy DeVito shares a last name with actor Danny DeVito, but the two aren’t related (at least not closely).
  • Tommy hails from New Jersey, close to Met Life Stadium, and played college football at Syracuse.
  • Tommy scored a touchdown during the Oct. 29, 2023, game against the Jets after coming in for Tyrod Taylor, but the Giants ultimately lost the game.

Because football is a sport filled with injury, you never know who might show up during a give game. During the Oct. 29, 2023, meeting between the NY Giants and the NY Jets, Tyrod Taylor, who was starting for the Giants in lieu of their actual starter Daniel Jones (already hurt), got hurt himself, which meant that they had to bring in third-string quarterback Tommy DeVito.

Tommy has not seen a lot of snaps in the NFL, in part because two guys have to be hurt for him to play some minutes. When he finally did take the field, though, some wondered whether the quarterback may be in any way related to an actor with the same last name.

Is Tommy DeVito related to Danny DeVito?

Though it’s always possible they are distantly related, Tommy and Danny are not closely related. Tommy is a rookie quarterback who the Giants picked up as an undrafted free agent, and he just happens to share a last name with a very famous actor. Tommy played for Syracuse through much of college, and even started for the school before he suffered a season-ending leg injury that ended his season.

In 2022, he transferred to Illinois, where he put up career-high numbers during the season. He had 2,650 passing yards, 15 TDs, and a mere four interceptions during that season, and also rushed for six touchdowns. He went undrafted in 2023’s draft, and was picked up by the Giants afterward. Tommy was picked up as a third-string quarterback, and has spent all of his career to date sitting behind Daniel Jones and Tyrod Taylor, who are both far more experienced in the league.

During the Oct. 29, 2023, game, though, Daniel Jones was already not starting because of a neck injury from a previous game, and Tyrod hurt himself during the game, which left the Giants with only one option for the quarterback spot. Tommy did manage to score a touchdown, but the Giants ultimately lost the game to the Jets after taking it into overtime, where the Jets scored a field goal.

Tommy’s future in the league is uncertain, but Giants fans may appreciate that he grew up just 20 miles from the stadium where he now plays. Tommy is a true New Jersey Italian, and many were eager to make jokes about how random it seemed that someone with that name was starting in the NFL.

So no, Tommy is not related to Danny, but the two of them likely share some common Italian heritage. Unless Tommy breaks big in the NFL, though, Danny is likely to remain the more well-known DeVito.

Ralph’s cause of death seems to have been heart failure that was caused by the lymphoma, which Howard added was made worse by his friend’s refusal to address his health or attempt to seek treatment. Even as Howard expressed his anger that his friend had died at just 58 years old, he also spent plenty of time paying tribute to Ralph and to the friendship the two of them shared.

Howard Stern knew Ralph for 40 years.

As Howard explained on his show, he and Ralph had a friendship that spanned the majority of both of their lives.

“He loved me,” Howard said. “Ralph was a trustworthy, dear friend who made me laugh every time I was with him.”

Howard also said that Ralph frequently accompanied him for his TV appearances, including many of the tapings of America’s Got Talent.

Howard even went so far as to credit Ralph with helping him to meet his wife. Howard explained that it was Ralph’s urging that Howard attend the party where he would ultimately meet his wife, Beth.

John Stamos, a frequent guest of Howard’s and also a personal friend, was the first to announce that Ralph had died.

“At the painfully young age of 58, my dear friend, Ralph Cirella, was suddenly taken from us, leaving us all in a state of profound shock,” John wrote. “He was, without a doubt, a one-of-a-kind soul.”

Howard said that he and Ralph had spoken the night before he died. Howard was hopeful Ralph would survive his cancer treatment.

  • Clare and Cameron have their share of differences on Married at First Sight.
  • They move in together in the Dec. 6 episode of MAFS.
  • Clare and Cameron have a hard time getting on the same page about intimacy and affection.

Marrying a stranger, honeymooning with them, and moving in together right after that is hard. Add to that the expected pressure of affection and intimacy and things are even more difficult. Which is exactly what Clare and Cameron are dealing with an an exclusive clip from the Dec. 6 episode of Married at First Sight.

In a way, their issues aren’t a total surprise. They’ve separately expressed concern about affection with one another before. And things weren’t easy on their honeymoon. But now, they meet with Dr. Pepper to sort things out and see if they can work on it before it becomes an even bigger issue.

Do Clare and Cameron share an attraction for each other on ‘Married at First Sight’?

Not everyone on Married at First Sight feels that immediate connection or attraction for their partner. And even when they do, it still doesn’t always work out for them. When it comes to Clare and Cameron, the biggest issue is giving and receiving affection. When one of them feels they should be getting it from the other person, the other assumes the same thing. For Cameron, it’s about getting more in return from Clare.

Article continues below advertisement

“I think the thing that Clare and I maybe struggled with the most during the honeymoon was trying to build a comfortable space for physical intimacy,” Cameron tells Dr. Pepper in the MAFS clip.

The issue doesn’t seem to be that there is a lack of attraction between Clare and Cameron. But instead, it looks like Clare is just having a harder time fully opening up and she needs that strong emotional connection first.

Clare agrees that it has been difficult for her to express her “love and affection.” But for Cameron, just hearing Clare explain why she is moving at a slow pace, which includes past relationships and intimacy there, is enough for him. And, it seems, this open line of communication could be just what they need.

Most ‘Married at First Sight’ couples are slow moving when it comes to intimacy.

Despite some MAFS couples hitting it off right away some seasons, they don’t always jump into bed together on their wedding nights or even during their honeymoons. Most participants are quick to remain guarded when it comes to actually hooking up with their new spouse. And if Clare and Cameron are dealing with that just a tad more than others, it just means they’re taking things slowly.

Watch Married at First Sight on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Lifetime.

Guy Gets Trapped in Closet Playing Hide and Seek With His Dog

Published

A man who was just enjoying a harmless game of hide and seek with his dog soon found himself trapped in a closet — with no idea how to get out.

Even for the most pessimistic, anxiety-ridden worst-case scenario type of thinker, conjuring up ways for an innocent game of hide and seek with your sweet dog to go South sounds like a tall order.

Seriously, what’s the worst that could happen? Could they have a hard time finding you and honestly think for a few seconds that you were actually gone?

Or maybe, thinking that you were absent, they could finally jump on the couch and live out their wildest pet fantasies and tear up every cushion you have in the house? Or if you grew up watching Michael Dudikoff flexing his martial arts prowess in the ’80s, maybe, in the craziest of scenarios, a group of ninjas working for an evil land developer would smash into your place while you were hiding and kidnap your sweet animal angel?

Or, maybe, unlike TikTok user @fireupforjesus, you totally could foresee how your pet would accidentally move a door in a room in such a way that it would trap you in the closet in which you were hiding in during your game of hide-and-seek, leaving you wondering just how in the world you’re going to get yourself out.

He documented his struggles in a series of TikToks, the first of which went massively viral, clocking in over 5 million views and a slew of comments from intrigued users who wanted to know how and if he’d be able to work his way out of the dual-door pickle.

The TikToker begins his video from inside of the closet, his voice taking on a slightly incredulous tone as he lays out the situation he’s found himself in: “I can’t make this stuff up so I was playing hide and go seek with my dog, he’s right there, and, um, I ran to hide in the closet. I closed the door, but I didn’t realize he had, he closed the other door behind it.”

His dog, Milo, tries poking its nose in between the crack of the door as @fireupforjesus places his hand through the crack and tries pushing the door open by applying a bit of force “Like, or opened the other door so now the other door is like pushed into this one’s door handle, hear it? And I have no way…like my arm don’t fit around. Dude. I don’t wanna break this door. Milo, can you help me? Yeah I know, I don’t know what to do either.”

“So yeah, current situation: stuck in a closet,” he says, defeated, looking into the camera unsure as to what he should do while his dog, Milo, still waiting for him to end his tenure as hider by exiting the closet, which he was unable to do without breaking down the doors, or so he thought.

That’s because he was eventually able to get out of the closet because in a follow-up clip, he posted as a response to one of the many commenters who were waiting with bated breath to see how he was going to extricate himself from his predicament, he demonstrated just how badly he was stuck in there from the outside of the closet.

In the clip, he pushes the door in question that Milo inadvertently used to trap him inside his spot: due to the angles of the doors, the metal latch of the handle on the one door caught on the closet door when fully extended, meaning that whoever is in the closet would have a heck of a time trying to get out.

The Bible enthusiast, in another video, recreated the scenario from inside the closet, with a concerned-looking Milo waiting outside and peering through the crack as he did in the TikToker’s initial upload.

He shows that sliding his left or right hand through the side crack in the door is ultimately a futile effort, as he can’t get enough leverage or clearance from the closet door’s handle on the room’s door latch to push the other door away enough so he can make his exit.

What he did discover, however, was that by reaching above the door and sliding his fingers through that crack, he was able to get just enough space to use his fingers to push the room door away from the closet, which allowed him to break free from his empty, carpeted prison, and reunite with Milo.

Thankfully, the scripture fan was tall enough to reach over the the top of the closet door and his fingers were indeed long enough to push it away, otherwise, he may’ve been stuck in there longer, or he would’ve had to get to shoulder charging the doors and, leaving him with not only a mess to clean up, and a potential safety hazard for Milo, but now a new expense he incurred from an innocent game of hide and seek with his beloved pet.

Overall it could’ve been worse for him, however: at least he had his cell phone with him so if the doors were made of a sturdier material and he was truly stuck, he could’ve phoned for some help.
