Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are least desirable neighbors, James Franco explains the selfie, Marilyn Manson to play cross between Kenny Powers and Karl Lagerfeld
Marilyn Manson is set to appear in Wrong Cops from Quentin Dupieux, but he’s also in the director’s next project, which has already shot in secret, where he’s playing a character described as “a combination of Kenny Powers and Karl Lagerfeld.” That should be something.
Is a Super Bowl MVP winner being outed, or has the media just lost its mind?
It’s looking like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will win the five day holiday box office with $50 million, followed by Frozen at $43 million, followed by Anchorman 2 and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Speaking of movies, just how badly did Ender’s Game bomb?
We had mentioned that a gay couple will marry on the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s float in the Rose Parade, and you knew that couldn’t pass without someone being upset. They’re now calling for other corporations to pull their floats from the parade and advertisers to boycott. But it’s wrong when we speak out against Phil Robertson.
The Boy Scouts are set to allow gay youth to join starting January 1, and they’re hoping it’s a nonissue, much like Y2K. “There hasn’t been a whole lot of fallout. If a church said they wouldn’t work with us, we’d have a church right down the street say, `We’ll take the troop.”
GLAAD doesn’t sound like one of the advocacy groups that A&E checked with before deciding to reinstate Phil Robertson to Duck Dynasty without even a slap on the wrist. “Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists. If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A+E has chosen profits over African American and gay people – especially its employees and viewers.”
With no stay in sight, Utah same-sex couples are shattering records for marriages. The record number of licenses handed out in Salt Lake County prior to the ruling was 85 in one day. Monday they handed out 353.
According to a Zilow survey, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are the world’s least desirable neighbors for 2013. They beat out Honey Boo Boo, Justin Bieber, and Miley Cyrus for the top spot. Honestly, living next to Kanye can’t be that bad. The properties would have to be miles wide, just to fit his ego in the front door.
For quite some time, it had been thought that a deal had been worked out to allow gays to serve in the Bolivian military. But not according to Defense Minister Rubén Saavedra, and his reasoning is a doozy. “The Political Constitution of the Sate indicates that only males can participate in mandatory military service and only males and females can join military institutes and schools, there is no other option. Take it for certain, you have to be male or female.”
We had written about Catholic school vice principal Mark Zmuda when he was fired from his job at Seattle’s Eastside Catholic High School for marrying his boyfriend. But some new details have come up that are pretty horrible. The school did make an offer to allow him to keep his job – all he had to do was dissolve his marriage. No big deal.
The appeals court in Indiana has ruled that in the cases of marriages where one partner has transitioned to another gender during the marriage, they can still get divorced without violating the state’s ban of same-sex marriage, because the marriage occurred when the partners were of the opposite sex.

When the Supreme Court ruled on Prop 8 and Windsor this year, they very carefully worded their decision in a way that most felt would allow them to avoid the issue of the right to equality for a few years as the nation evolved on the subject. But with a stay of the Utah decision headed to the Supreme Court, time is not on the justices’ side. At best, they may have until 2015 to make a definitive ruling.
