>Charlie Sheen is at it again.
Melvin, however, seems intent on talking to a man, since his interview with Diane Sawyer after his anti-Semitic didn’t go so well for him. It seems that gives Matt Lauer a leg up, and Lauer is quite the media whore so he may just sell his soul to interview Gibson.
But what really makes her unhappy is her rapidly depleting bank account. It seems that drug addict and criminal, Lohan, will need to find a to help cover her bill at the Betty Ford Center.
The source says: “Lindsay can’t afford to pay for treatment. Three months at the facility will cost her almost $50,000, which she doesn’t have.”
Lohan, who is used to living the high life–pun intended–asking for free clothes and free dinners and free admittance to the latest drug party, doesn’t seem to have it in her to ask someone to pay for her rehab.
Um, yeah, good luck with that.
Although….maybe if I made some “Save Lohan” t-shirts, I could help her…..Nah.
Let her find a cheaper rehab.
Speaking of rehab:
>Midland School Board Member Clint McCance is resigning.
“I am going to resign from the school board. It is to–to help my community, to help my school. I don’t want them to receive bad press or have a distraction because of some ignorant comments that have–that I made. If they decide later, you know, a year, five years, 10 years from now to vote me back in, if my constituents want that, then–then I will run again.”
Hopefully your constituents will have long-term memory and you will never be on any school board, anywhere, any time, ever. But then Clint McCance wants to apologize:
“I–you know, I would–would like to extend an apology, especially to those to those–to those families that have lost children, not just gay, heterosexual, all–all children that feel like suicide’s the only way out. It’s a–it saddens me, and–but especially for those five — five families that have just recently lost children. You know, I have–I have brought more hurt on them with these comments. And that was never my intention. And I apologize for that, because they don’t–they don’t deserve that. And I do feel genuinely bad for that, for them.”
Too little, too late. I might forgive, might, but I find it hard to forget that Clint McCance wished and hoped and prayed, that LGBTQ youth would kill themselves. Hopefully, he’ll learn to think before he speaks, and keep his homophobia and hate to himself.
Here’s McCance on Anderson Cooper 360:
It all started with a reunion show, and me looking at the screen at more than half the people there and wondering, Who is that? I guess that means it’s been a long season, and the finale is upon us.
But first, the reunion. Nice to see Pickles, er, Peach, and the girl with the dreads who got Auf’d first. Good times. Nice to see Ivy stirring up trouble again, by outing Gretchen as a backstabbing bitch.
Ivy? Honey? Pot? Kettle? Black.
Mercifully, the reunion was short-lived and it was on to the Finale, so…..
>President Obama, on marriage equality:
There is no such thing as “traditional” marriage, because marriage has evolved since the beginning of time.
Used to be marriages were arranged and the bride and groom had no say.
Used to be women became the “property” of men.
Used to be one man could have many wives.
Used to be you didn’t marry outside your faith.
Used to be you didn’t marry outside your religion.
Used to be you didn’t marry outside your race.
That isn’t tradition, that’s change, and evolution.
Rebecca Kleefisch, GOP candidate for lieutenant governor of Wisconsin, on marriage equality:
“This is a slippery slope. In addition to that at what point are we going to be okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table or this, you know, clock? Can we marry dogs? This is ridiculous. And biblically, again, I’m going to go right back to my fundamental Christian beliefs marriage is between one man and one woman.”
No, Rebecca, what’s ridiculous, and demeaning, and homophobic, is you comparing two people of the same sex, who want to be married, to bestiallity.
What’s even more disgusting, is you inflicting your religious beliefs on the rest of us.
You don’t beleieve in gay marriage, don’t marry a gay person [props to Whoopi Goldberg for that one.]
Jamie Lee Curtis, on her father, Tony Curtis:
Children, as we all know, are complicated and messy. He was not a father and he was not interested in being a father. It’s not a slant against him, he was very clear. He did what he was supposed to do from a financial standpoint, which was honorable of him but he was not an involved father.”
Strong words, but no anger.
She completely understands that her father chose to be “Tony Curtis” and not a father, and, well, now she’s okay with that.
Alan Cumming, on his disappointment with Barack Obama and his administration’s banning the injunction on the DADT:
This is also my problem with Obama.
Simple lack of action.
Simple lack of making a statement.
On the campaign trail he was full of statements regarding the LGBT community, and now, though some of his actions have been pro-LGBT, his definitive statements have all but disappeared.
Angels in America/Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto, on whether or not he’s gay:
“I’m grateful that celebrity or notoriety wasn’t thrust upon me when I was in my 20s, because I think I would have buckled under the weight of it, as so many people do, but I’ve come to realize through experience that ultimately I really do have a lot of power in terms of the way I relate to the public or to people outside of my intimate circle of friends and family. Boundaries are very important to me.
That makes him all right in my book.
But, if he is gay, then he needs to come out, and carry that same inspiration for the LGBT community.
Sharron Angle, on America being destroyed by gay marriage and straight divorce, and social services:
Not much left to say except that she is one crazy bitch, and Nevada, if you want her, and you elect her, then you deal with her.
Don’t come cryin’ to me that she’s a crazy bitch, because I told you so right here.
>Lullaby or love song…….it’s just pretty.
I just loves me some Modern Family because I see myself and Carlos in that show all the time.
One minute we’re Cameron and Mitchell…obviously…but more often than not we’re also Gloria and Jay, er, Yay.
I was howling last night when the family got together and reminisced about Gloria’s difficulty with English. A doggy-dog world? A box of baby jesus’?
Reminds of someone I know.
And the Glee Rocky Horror Show was fun. I drove Carlos crazy singing the songs, and telling him about being a RHPS devotee and going to the midnight show every week. I made him shudder, when I Time Warped around the sofa.
Plus, John Stamos? Hot.
Chord Overstreet? Dear baby cheeses, er, Jesus.
Matthew Morrison? Oh man.
Best line: Sam, hating his gold lame briefs, and worrying about showing a little “nuttage.”
I caught some of The View this week, especially when Joy Behar called Sharron Angle a bitch. Loved that.
But, does anyone else think Babs should give it up. I mean, she continually tries to speak and then rambles on, nearly incoherently about her opinion.
So much of what she says makes no sense, that soon, I think we’ll be hearing her mutter things like “Soap” in response to a question about politics.
You’ve had a good run, Babs, now take a hike.
Top Chef: Just Desserts With Dawn Hand Renewal and Albertson’s and Godiva and Breyers.
Seriously, enough commercials.
This week was Bake Shop Wars, and it was fun. But then there’s Morgan, who channels Seth and the Crazy from time-to-time, and is obsessed with team Diva so much so that i think he’s a closet diva wannabe.
In a closet filled with women’s shoes.
Come out already Morgan.
And The A-List.
i know, I keep saying I hate this show, but then there I am watching it.
And, well, maybe this is why:
The Big C on Showtime.
What a great show. About cancer. Funny and sweet and sad and charming and sexy. about cancer.
Laura Linney is just amazing. And I so want to be Marlene, the neighbor, when i grow up….like I’m ever going to grow up!
I saw Jane Fonda on Oprah yesterday.
She’s fit, fabulous and seventy-two.
But, and this is mean, but I’ma say it anyway, when Fonda stood next to Oprah, all i could do was think of Sesame Street and say, This has been brought to you by the number ten.
Yeah, Oprah really needs to dust off the Fonda workout tapes and step away from the cookies.
