Well, this could be interesting. CNN reportedly taped a pilot of an Anderson Cooper/Kathy Griffin talk show yesterday, in front of a studio audience. Can America handle the two of them together five nights/week instead of just once/year?
Ellen DeGeneres has really enjoyed her trip to Australia. “I shouldn’t put it out there, but I can see us living here one day. Not for a while, as I’ve got shows to do, but I can see it happening.” Hey Australia, give her back.
Does Game of Thrones need more male nudity? Is this even a question?
James Franco did not sleep with Lindsay Lohan. But he could have. “I don’t want to, like, brag about it, and I don’t know how that got out! She was having issues even then, so you feel weird. Honestly, she was a friend. I’ve met a lot of people that are troubled and sometimes … you don’t want to do that.”
Katherine Heigl and Patrick Wilson will star together in North of Hell, as “a successful businessman who seems to have it all — including an obsessive wife who relentlessly controls everything in his life.” Too easy.
Google has pressured the Swedish language Council to drop “ogooglebar,” or “ungoogleable” from the language, because it doesn’t specifically refer to Google, but to just being unfindable, as it would make the name of their company generic.
Concerned Women for America says that Starbucks is discriminating against straight people by supporting equality. “He doesn’t want our business. Schultz statement isn’t tolerant. It is prejudicial and bigoted. So where are the newspaper headlines reading, ‘Starbucks CEO Refuses Pro-Marriage Supporters Service,’ which is exactly the message his statement conveys? What’s next, Starbucks? Two separate drinking fountains for liberals and conservatives or ‘now hiring’ signs reading, ‘Heterosexuals Need Not Apply’?”
More Senators are going beyond abandoning DOMA and embracing marriage equality. Alaska Senator Mark Begich supports equality, and now my own Senator Rockefeller has come out for marriage. While I’d like to call this a big deal for a West Virginia senator, he’s announced he’s not running again, and as one of the wealthiest members of Congress, he never did fundraising for elections or took salaries, so despite having met him many times over the last 30 years, I’m still pretty ashamed of him on the timing.
Jeff Stryker says that when he was a young, inexperienced porn star, even when they doubled his money, he couldn’t “perform” so they used a stunt penis. After a few movies he got into the swing of things.
Just a day after Republican Party Chair Reince Priebus said that he’d like Mike Huckabee to be the Republican point man for gay issues, Huckabee took a hard line on the subject, saying conservatives would walk from a Republican Party that supported marriage equality. “And if they do, they’re going to lose a large part of their base because evangelicals will take a walk. And it’s not because there’s an anti-homosexual mood, and nobody’s homophobic that I know of, but many of us, and I consider myself included, base our standards not on the latest Washington Post poll, but on an objective standard, not a subjective standard. I have great sympathy and extraordinary admiration for Sen. Portman. I consider him a friend and I value his work in the Senate and think he’s a great person. The mistake is that we sometimes base our public policy decisions on how we feel, how we think, maybe even some personal experiences, and we don’t regard a lot of these issues from the standpoint of an objective standard.” Not to offend our Christian readers, but I don’t consider the Bible an “objective standard.”
How well do you know Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka? I got 10 out of 11 right, just under stalker level.
And now there’s a Pinterest for dudes called Manteresting, and instead of repinning something, you “nail” it.
