PAGE SIX NY POST: VIP Super Bowl fans saw Hollywood hunk Channing Tatum in what appeared to be a wild brawl Saturday with UFC champ Cung Le at Tatum’s New Orleans bar, Saints and Sinners.About 50 people — including “Twilight Saga” star Ashley Greene and MTV babe Audrina Patridge — were partying in a VIP area when “heads swiveled” to see the two muscle-bound men locked in a “wrestling match.” “They were putting each other in headlocks and chokeholds,” said a spy of the scene at the Big Easy bar. Guests even moved to separate the pair, who were doing what one spy called a “series of scary jujitsu moves” before realizing the brawl was their idea of fun. “At the end of their match, the two gave each other a big bear hug, and everyone realized they are friends,” said a source. Turns out People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” and Le are close pals from the 2009 street-mayhem opus “Fighting.” They even posed for a pic of Tatum putting Le in a complex chokehold while the UFC fighter and actor mugged. Tatum was rolling solo in New Orleans, while his pregnant wife, Jenna, was back at home in LA.

People are combing over video of BEYONCÉ'S Super Bowl Halftime performance, trying to find a WARDROBE MALFUNCTION in there somewhere.  Some people claim Beyoncé had a NIP-SLIP . . . while others think she may have showed off a little too much of the entrance to her BIRTH CANAL.  The fact is, there was no nudity in either case.  Meanwhile, Beyoncé is launching a tour with the identity-crushing title of "The Mrs. Carter Show".

BAR REFAELI says kissing that nerd in the Go Daddy Super Bowl commercial was HER dream come true . . . quote, "I always wanted to go to a club filled with people, look around and choose the most unlikely guy that I will ever kiss or pay attention to and kiss him in front of everyone so he will be very happy.  For me it was making my dream come true."  She also said he's a "very very good kisser".

The nerd who got to kiss BAR REFAELI in the Go Daddy Super Bowl commercial has a reputation as the "World's Greatest Extra", because he can be seen in the background in tons of movies and TV shows.  As for his newfound fame, he says, quote, "I've actually had guys tweet me that they wish they were me, and girls tweet me saying they wish they were Bar.  I have girls run up to me and take pictures with me, tweet me for dates." They include the original "Spider-Man", "Old School", "The Social Network", "Glee", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "Arrested Development" and "NCIS", just to name a few

Did you see that Old Milwaukee Super Bowl ad where WILL FERRELL made out with an older Asian lady on a bus?  -No, you probably didn't . . . because it only aired in three tiny markets:  Sherman, Texas . . . Ardmore, Oklahoma . . . and Glendive, Montana. Will's Old Milwaukee ads are becoming a tradition.  He also did one last year that only aired in North Platte, Nebraska

Sunday's Super Bowl attracted 108.4 million people, which is a HUGE audience . . . but it fell short of last year's all-time record of 111.3 million viewers.  Still, this year's game stands as the THIRD most-watched TV program of ALL TIME.

"Elementary" attracted 20.8 million viewers in its post-Super Bowl timeslot.  That's its biggest audience since it premiered last fall . . . but it didn't capitalize on its post-Super Bowl timeslot as much as other shows have in recent years.  In fact, it had one of the smallest crowds EVER for a post-Super Bowl timeslot.

 

The odds are already out on which teams are most likely to make NEXT YEAR'S Super Bowl.  The Patriots are the favorite at 7 to 1, followed by the 49ers and the Broncos at 8 to 1.  This year's champs, the Baltimore Ravens, are tied with the Houston Texans for FIFTH place with 14 to 1 odds.  The ultimate long shots are the Jaguars and the Raiders, at 150 to 1.

BILL MAHER called DONALD TRUMP out over his stupid vendetta against PRESIDENT OBAMA by jokingly offering to give $5 million to charities of Trump's choice if he could prove his father wasn't an orangutan.  Well, Trump produced his birth certificate, and now he wants that money.  Yesterday, he even SUED Maher for it.  He claims he has an "obligation" to his chosen charities to collect the money.

You've probably heard by now that there's a stage musical in the works based on "Magic Mike".  Well, here's some good news:  That show will include LAP DANCES.-One of the guys who's working on it says, quote, "Oh, you definitely might get a lap dance.  Absolutely.  That's happening for sure."  He adds, quote, "There's bound to be a great song about how to pick out a thong."

ROBIN WILLIAMS has been cast in an upcoming CBS sitcom called "Crazy Ones".  It could be on CBS' schedule next fall.  Salon.com says his real-life daughter ZELDA WILLIAMS will play his daughter on the show, but that hasn't been confirmed

"The Ricki Lake Show", which premiered in September, will NOT get a second season . . . but new episodes will continue to run through this coming September.  By the way, JEFF PROBST'S talk show isn't doing much better . . . so it may not get a second season either.

BILLY JOEL is closing in on being 64 years old, and he doesn't see himself making a comeback.  He says, quote, "I had to get hip replacements in both hips.  And now slowly but surely I'm kinda getting back to normal.  I'd say I'm 85% . . . [but] honestly, I'm not as good as I used to be."

 Just last week, guitarist JOE TROHMAN denied talk that FALL OUT BOY was reuniting this year.  But he was LYING.  The band announced it on their website, and revealed the dates for a spring tour that kicks off in May.

Clearly, asking Beyoncé to do the halftime show at the 2013 Super Bowl on Sunday was a smart plan because she killed it. But what seemed to be an even better idea was reuniting the singer with fellow Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
