Basketball fans may have been disappointed by the Warriors’ loss at the Oakland Arena on Tuesday, but Queen Bey slayed courtside.

Beyonce drew attention for her sparkly green Vetements sock boots that teeter on heels resembling cigarette lighters. She was seated beside her casually dressed husband Jay-Z at the opening night game in which the Spurs beat the Warriors 129-100.

The stretchy mid-calf booties feature Vetements’ name in white and "a saucy unicorn-printed column heel," according to Nordstrom, where it is sold for $2,230.

<![CDATA[Once-Missing Dancer Thanks Cops ]]> Thu, 27 Oct 2016 11:52:30 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/shirlene+quigley+cops.jpg

The North Bergen Police Department got a huge thank you from Shirlene Quigley when she dancer and her father stopped by police headquarters on Thursday.

The 32-year-old and her father, Brad Quigley, thanked the members of the detective bureau for finding her and reuniting her with family, the New Jersey police department said.

"We are beyond pleased this situation has come to a successful conclusion," police wrote in an Instagram post. "The North Bergen Police Department wishes Shirlene health, happiness and success in all of her future endeavors."

[[398888881, C,600,600]]

Quigley, who lives alone in North Bergen, vanished near the Port Authority Bus Terminal at around 1 a.m. Sunday after making a cryptic comment to friends. 

Rihanna and Missy Elliott posted emotional pleas on Instagram for information on the whereabouts of Quigley, who has also performed with Beyonce.

[[398379431, C]]

North Bergen police said in an Instagram post Tuesday evening that the dancer was found safe with the help of NYPD. She was at an undisclosed medical facility, and her father flew in from Los Angeles to reunite with her. 

In the post on Thursday, police said the public outcry was instrumental in helping to find Quigley. 

"The outpour of concern and assistance from the community and celebrities alike was quite touching. We could not have done it without their help," police wrote.

<![CDATA[Halloween-Ready Richard Sherman: 'I'm Definitely a Wizard']]> Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:44:02 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/214*120/Screen+Shot+2016-10-27+at+8.57.36+AM.png

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman cast a spell over a press conference Wednesday, when he dressed as a Gryffindor and said he was a wizard. 

Clad in a robe and Harry Potter's signature scarlet-and-gold tie, the NFL player waved a wand while answering questions about football and his wizarding world. He said that "The Order of Phoenix" is his favorite book in the Harry Potter series and compared America's favorite sport, football, and Potter's favorite, quidditch. 

"Five quarters of football is pretty tough, but quidditch — the beaters, the chasers, trying to find the golden snitch, things like that — that's tough," Sherman said, referring to the gritty 6-6 tie his team played on Sunday night against the Arizona Cardinals. "Five quarters of football, though, in the elements, I'd say that'd take the cake."

Sherman is known around the league for his shut-down defense, penchant for trash talk and willingness to address major issues facing American society at press conferences. Last month, Sherman showed his support for players who kneel during the national anthem by walking out of a press conference.

But Wednesday, Sherman faced the press with a much more light-hearted topic in mind, possibly because he recently got back from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando: "I just went to Harry Potter land. I felt like that was home."

He plans to rock his "Hogwarts student" costume on Monday night, when he takes his son trick-or-treating. And in lieu of an invisibility cloak, Sherman has a sure-proof disguise to hide from paparazzi.

"This is all you've got to do," he said, slipping on a pair of glasses. "Clark Kent did it. You've just got to put the glasses on. Bam, no longer Richard Sherman. Can't even tell anymore, right?"

When asked about his health after Sunday's game, Sherman stayed in character to describe his symptoms, whcih presented as heat exhaustion.

"Well, I'm definitely a wizard, so if you're asking if I feel like a Muggle again, I don't," he said, after being asked if he felt "human" again. "But I started feeling better probably around late yesterday, last night, just getting more fluids in me and more energy, legs started getting back under me."

<![CDATA[Murray or Hanks? Oil or Paint? Images Befuddle the Internet]]> Thu, 27 Oct 2016 12:04:20 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/https___blueprint-api-production_s3_amazonaws_com_uploads_card_image_260405_Screen_Shot_2016-10-26_at_11_16_48.png

Last year, it was a photo of a dress that left viral internet watchers questioning their color perception. Now it’s a picture of actor Bill Murray — or is it Tom Hanks? — with a crying toddler and a photo of paint-spattered — or shiny? — legs that have internet users scratching their heads. 

The first image shows a pair of legs with what looks to be light bouncing off of them. Some wondered if the legs were wet, while others thought they were covered in oil.

The photo was originally posted online in September, but was re-posted this week and went viral in a matter of hours.

The second image is of actor Bill Murray standing behind a crying toddler. But some viewers are convinced the man behind the baby is actually actor Tom Hanks.

The photo was apparently taken three years ago in St. Andrew's, Scotland, but has since resurfaced. After the debate raged, the toddler's mother confirmed on Facebook that it is indeed Murray in the photo.

It was a sleep over and a pizza party with Justin Timberlake during Thursday's "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon."

Timberlake's appearance opened with a skit of the two playing kids sleeping at Camp Winnipesaukee. But two grown men at a summer camp in October playing as children can be considered strange, maybe even ironic. Timberlake and Fallon marked the occasion by singing Alanis Morissette's "Ironic."

They manage to sing quietly until they hit the chorus and their enthusiasm gets the best of them -- their whiny rendition of "Ironic" triggering a camp staff member to quiet them down.

[[398861131, C]]

Later in the show, Timberlake also poked fun at a selfie he took that got him in some trouble with the law. 

The singer posted a picture of himself on Instagram in a voting booth in Tennessee Monday, writing "No excuses, my good people!"

A Tennessee law bars voters from taking photographs or video while inside a polling location.

[[238904721, C]]

Timberlake, who flew in to Tennessee from California to cast an early vote, shared some advice while on the "Tonight Show": "Get out and vote, but don't take a picture of yourself. I had no idea."

Christmas will come early for Bay Area makeup lovers.

Ipsy, a monthly beauty subscription, is hosting San Francisco’s first-ever Generation Beauty on Nov. 5 and 6. The two-day convention, which was hosted in New York in September, will be hosted at Pier 27 at the Embarcadero.

The lineup of popular stylists includes Ipsy co-founder Michelle Phan, Gabriel Zamora, LustreLux and Desi Perkins. Benefit, GHD, NYX, Tarte, and Jouer are some of the makeup brands that are slated to make a splash at Generation Beauty.

And as if that’s not enough, fans will receive a swag bag, which, Ipsy promises, will feature over $200 worth of treats.

Makeovers, tips and tricks – think bold lips, beauty bling, and hair hues – and up-and-coming products are also on tap at Generation Beauty.

Admission costs roughly $180 for both days. Generation Beauty will last from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

<![CDATA[Rob Gronkowski Goes Undercover as Lyft Driver]]> Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:00:18 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/gronkgronk.jpg

Talk about a smooth ride.

New England Patriots' tight-end Rob Gronkowski went undercover as a Lyft driver in New England recently...and the results were about as hilarious as you might expect.

Starting out with a high-pitched voice, "Gronk" acted as a lover of astrophysics - barely able to discuss the subject with a passenger.

But he quickly transitioned into a passionate Patriots fan, lovingly talking about his teammate, Tom Brady.

"You know, that Tom guy? He does throw it to Gronk, and the way he spikes the football is just so cool to me," he gushed.

One woman complimented him for knowing all of the player’s names, while another tells him Brady is "off limits" since he’s married.

"I mean I’m not trying to get with him!" He said. "I mean I just want to meet him."

Gronkowski even says he has a man crush on Brady, soon after admitting, "I love that guy! I got like four posters of him."

One passenger tells him he met Rob Gronkowski at a bar downtown, which the NFL star vehemently denies.

After revealing his identity to the surprised passengers, "Gronk" starts spiking the football - his signature move. One passenger recommended he wear the wig he used as a disguise to the games.

<![CDATA[Letterman Hosts Special on Climate Change]]> Thu, 27 Oct 2016 07:49:41 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/letermanna.jpg

Jay Leno's post "Tonight Show" career revolves around standup and his love of cars, as evidenced by his CNBC show, "Jay Leno's Garage."

The latest phase of Jerry Seinfeld's post-"Seinfeld" professional life focuses on standup and his love of cars  – and comedians – as seen in his Crackle series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."

David Letterman, nearly a year and a half after leaving CBS' "Late Show," appears driven by a somewhat loftier goal: He wants to save the world.

Letterman guest hosts Sunday's installment of the National Geographic Channel’s "Years of Living Dangerously" ­– a gig that took him to India to report on climate change. In semi-retirement, as in his three-decade late night career, Letterman charts his own path, as he journeys toward perhaps his greatest human trick of all.

India, of course, is a long way from the New York TV studios where Letterman got legions of fans stuck on him with early stunts like donning a Velcro suit and leaping onto a Velcro wall. And the gravity of his latest venture marks a departure for the once perennially sarcastic host known for getting cursed out by one-named icons Madonna and Cher.

But Letterman not only grew on audiences, he grew up. His heart surgery in 2000 at age 52 brought out a more serious side. He provided unforgettable words of outrage and comfort after 9/11 ( “We're gonna try and feel our way through this, and we'll just see how it goes – take it a day at a time.”). He became a stronger interviewer, learning to listen and follow his curiosity, much like his hero, Johnny Carson.

Letterman never set out to be a hardcore political comedian, even if in later “Late Show” years, he highlighted President George W. Bush's battles with eloquence in "Great Moments in Presidential Speeches" segments. It's telling that Letterman's first major post-"Late Show" appearance was a surprise Donald Trump-themed “Top 10 List” delivered during a Steve Martin-Martin Short stage show.

Few, though, might have guessed Letterman would head to another continent to interview Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and energy experts. But the undertaking brims with the ambition and restlessness that propelled his comedy career. As he nears 70, the gray-bearded late night elder is cognizant not only of his entertainment legacy, but of his role as father to his 12-year-old son, Harry. 

Other than storied lives in comedy, Letterman, Leno and Seinfeld a share a determination to stay on the public eye, on their own terms – unlike Carson, who all but disappeared after his 30-year run on "The Tonight Show." He might not be leaping back into comedy, but Letterman, in his own way, is proving himself a standup guy.

Tom Hanks doesn't even need a beat.

Twenty-eight years after his breakout on the big screen in "Big," Hanks still knows the rap that his character and friend chant to each other.

Wesley Chan and Philip Wang of Wong Fu Productions went to Florence, Italy, to meet Ron Howard and Tom Hanks, who were promoting their new film, "Inferno."

Wang, a lifelong Hanks fan, admitted he memorized the rap in 'Big' because he watched it so often growing up. When he asked the actor if they could recite it together, Hanks didn't hesitate.

Hanks also revealed that the famous rap was stolen from his kid's summer camp, because while filming "Big," they felt the movie was missing something.

Remember Fergus, the resilient golden retriever who captured the hearts of many after he suffered third-degree burns from an acid attack in Southern California last year?

He's making a tremendous comeback.

The lovable pup is now training to become a therapy dog for burn victims, as well as make an appearance on famed "dog whisperer" Cesar Millan's new show.

The dog behaviorist taped an episode of "Dog Nation" Tuesday at Fergus' family's home in Calabasas to help the pooch with obedience training.

"The more you went through, the more you can empathize," Millan said. "So for Fergus to go through burns, then go and help (other people) move on from that experience, I think he is the right ambassador for it."

Fergus was surrendered at a Lancaster animal shelter in August 2015 with a third-degree burn along his back, from his neck all the way to his tail.

The then-injured dog's story received an overwhelming response from loving strangers, who donated a truckload of treats, toys and more to the shelter where he was recovering.

Hillary Clinton took a break from campaigning in South Florida Tuesday night to check out the Adele concert at American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Clinton, who turns 69 Wednesday, even got an endorsement from the British singer, who discussed the presidential election and Clinton's Republican rival Donald Trump in between songs.

"I am English but what happens in America affects me too," Adele told the crowd. "Don't vote for him. I can't vote but I am 100 percent for Hillary Clinton, I love her, she's amazing."

Earlier Tuesday, Clinton and Trump both held rallies in Florida as they work to lockup votes ahead of the Nov. 8 election.

Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager, referenced Clinton's appearance at the concert while defending the GOP nominee's decision to appear at the opening of his new hotel in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. 

"Respectfully, Hillary Clinton has time to go to an Adele concert and everyone thinks that's really cool," she told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday. "Donald Trump stops off to unveil just an incredible, stunning piece of architecture, a new first class hotel and everyone's hair is on fire. I think you see today tangible accomplishments of Donald Trump."

UPDATE: Missing backup dancer found safe, police say

Mega music stars are joining in the surging call for help finding a 32-year-old backup dancer from New Jersey who vanished near the Port Authority Bus Terminal over the weekend after making a cryptic comment to friends.

Rihanna posted an emotional plea on Instagram for information on the whereabouts of Shirlene Quigley, who has also performed with Beyonce and Missy Elliott. 

Calling Quigley a "beautiful soul," Rihanna wrote, "My heart aches thinking of how heavy this is on all who love her!" The Instagram post included a video of the missing woman contemplating peace and love.

"Imagine if we treated each other like we all came from the same family," Quigley says in the video. "If you are in my life, I love you, whether it be 10 seconds or forever, because we're all family." 

[[398379431, C]]

Quigley, who lives alone in North Bergen and teaches dance at Peridance Capezio Center and Broadway Dance Center in Manhattan, according to her Facebook page, was last seen getting on a bus at Port Authority around 1 a.m. Sunday, her father said. 

Her father, who lives in California, said Quigley normally calls him every day around 6 p.m., and he became concerned when he hadn't heard from her.

"I just want her to come home, or if someone has her to let her be," the father said. "She's everything to me. She's why I live." 

[[398221391, C]]

Missy Elliott posted a collage of Quigley, urging people to call police if they have information.

"Need help from the whole Dance Community to spread the word!" Elliott wrote on Instagram. "Those who have met her know her spirit is always bubbly and kind & uplifting energy! Sending countless prayers."

[[398379551, C]]

Police say Quigley's phone was found at a bridal store in Chelsea; her father says she could've been there to pick up something for a show. 

Quigley's father said his daughter made a strange comment to her friend recently along the lines of "Get ready, it's about to happen and I'm going to need you to sub for me." 

Quigley attended Liberty Church in Brooklyn; her father says that she is very religious, and that lately she has seemed "euphoric." 

Her landlord saw her leave her New Jersey home Saturday afternoon and later called a friend to say Quigley did not seem well, the friend said. 

According to her personal website, Quigley's dance career launched when she was 18 and earned a role as one of the "uhh ohh girls" on Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" music video. She has performed on an array of awards shows, including the VMA's, Grammy's and ESPY Awards. 

Quigley created the first high heel dance class at a studio in her hometown of Los Angeles and later brought the workshop to New York City. She has also taught at dance studios around the world, her website says.

Sinead O'Conner said she rushed to the hospital earlier this week following complications from surgery. The singer posted on Facebook saying she was unable to breathe and that her liver had been accidentally damaged during a medical procedure.  

The "Nothing Compares To You" singer also bemoaned she was alone and had no emotional support in her posts.

"Gotta go to emergency. Liver all f----- and killing me," O'Conner wrote. "Can't breathe properly it so sore. Am posting as am lonely. Story of life. Wish was not so alone in world. Gotta be worth something to someone after all these years and after all I given. Am so shocked to be so all alone."

In an earlier note posted that same day O'Conner said she has been in rehab following 30 years of substance abuse and would be living in a "sober living environment" for the next year. 

In May, O'Connor caused a brief scare when she was reported as missing in the Chicago suburbs, but was found safe at the Best Western hotel in Morton Grove, where several police cars and an ambulance had been spotted.

<![CDATA[Walmart Scraps 'Suicide Scar' Makeup Kit Amid Outrage]]> Mon, 24 Oct 2016 10:02:12 -0700 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/walmart_north_las_vegas.jpg

Outraged mental health advocates petitioned Walmart to stop selling a "Suicide Scar Wound" makeup kit offered on the retailer's website.

Walmart, one of the leading retailers in the United States, can be a one-stop shop for Halloween necessities like candy, costumes, and decorations.

This year the site featured a "Razor Blade Suicide Scar Wound" latex costume makeup kit. The product, according to Walmart, was not something they put up for sale online, but rather a third-party vendor, that Walmart did not identify.

The title and photo of a razor blade with two bloody slash marks instigated outrage from the community.

"I would like to know which part of this is a suitable costume for anyone," one person said on Twitter. "Self harm isn't a 'scary costume' for all to wear."

A group called Revolving of Doors launched a change.org petition.

"This is not just a disgrace to the sensitivity to those who suffer from self-harm, but a shame on Walmart for making light of the situation," the petition stated.

"This 'costume' is real life for many people, many people who are contemplating volumes higher than self-harm," the petition added. "Suicide is not a joke, not a costume, and not funny."

The controversy prompted Walmart to remove the costume from their site over the weekend, telling Facebook followers they too thought it was "unacceptable."
