John Oliver on Whoopi Goldberg: She’ll Defend Anything

Written by , Posted in General

  It’s no secret that Whoopi Goldberg can be a cantankerous contrarian, but it wasn’t until John Oliver packaged her most objectionable defenses that I realized just how far she’ll go to present the other side of the argument. Her standouts include Mel Gibson, Jesse James, Ray Rice, Chris Brown, Bill Cosby, and Roman Polanski. While she might just be a loyal friend with a questionable inner circle, her stances are certainly worth a raised eyebrow. Watch below.

Do I Sound Gay? WATCH Trailer Now

Written by , Posted in General

Is it wrong to “sound gay?” Should a speech affect be considered a defect of sorts, and should gay men strive to “sound straight?” What is the origin of such speech patterns? In an acclaimed new documentary directed by David Thorpe, “gay voice” gets explored. Watch a trailer below.

Lena Dunham Backtracks on Marriage After Freaking Out her Boyfriend

Written by , Posted in General

  I’m unsure about many things, but there’s one thing of which I’m certain. Celebrities are insane. Just as I frown upon close friends who expose the inner workings of their personal life on facebook, I do the same for celebrities, whose “friend circle” is a much larger audience with much more to say. Lena Dunham makes the list of loony celebs who just can’t stop the crazy train. When asked about her love life with musician Jack Antonoff, Dunham fiercely proclaimed that she’d marry when gay people had the equal right. She predictably got herself into a pickle given the recent Supreme Court ruling, and she now must backtrack. Instead of learning her lesson and closing the public doors to her private life, she has now written a long-winded essay for The New Yorker, explaining that her boyfriend is not on the same marriage page, and he seemed uncomfortable with her forward advances. Gee, was it the tweet to millions of people, or perhaps making the talk-show rounds to talk about it? In normal life, mentioning marriage is already a careful approach, in celebrity life, apparently it’s a national issue. My advice to Lena Dunham and every other famous person on the planet is this. If you don’t want the public invested in your personal life, thereby increasing the paparazzi’s desire for pictures, keep it zipped. Furthermore, if you’d like to keep your relationship intact, privacy might help. Also, passive aggressively tweeting about the future state of your life is probably not the best idea.

Raven Symone v. Candace Cameron Bure: Gay Marriage Debate

Written by , Posted in General

The View needs Candace Cameron Bure on its panel. Ratings are down, and their musical chairs extravaganza has yet to garner the viral hits of Elisabeth’s Hasselbeck’s crazy rants. Sure Cameron is a bigot who opposes gay marriage, but so are a lot of people, and just because she’s cringe-worthy doesn’t mean she won’t generate ratings.

In a debate with Raven Symone, Bure insisted that we should “respect opposing views” when referencing a bakery that was fined for illegally discriminating against gay people after refusing to bake a cake for their wedding. If that same bakery refused to bake a cake for a wedding between a black woman and a white man, would she ask that we grant the same respect? No, she wouldn’t. And using Jesus to justify this stance is not only ridiculous, it also suggest that Jesus hates people for who they love. Though I’m Jewish and don’t believe in Jesus, I’m guessing that if such a man exists, he’d love everyone equally.

Ariana Grande “Hates America” — And Doughnuts

Written by , Posted in General

If Ariana Grande “hates America,” as she proclaims in the video below, I’d encourage her to leave. It’s no secret that the trashy pop tart has garnered a world of criticism for her diva antics, but we live in video-driven society, so she was bound to get caught. In a secret tape, Grande can be seen sticking out her tongue near doughnuts, followed by asking “What the fuck is that,” and proclaiming her hatred for our country. Her team quickly entered the spin zone, with a long statement about obesity in our country, begging the question of why she chose to enter a doughnut shop in the first place. As an aside, I very much love doughnuts, and I’m thin. Everything is fine in moderation. I also enjoy all fast foods, pizza, and excessive cheese quesadillas. AND I LOVE AMERICA. Watch below. Congratulations to Scooter Braun, he sure knows how to pick them.

Whoopi Goldberg Still Defends Bill Cosby: WATCH NOW

Written by , Posted in General

 If it’s true that there needs to be more proof before Whoopi Goldberg and Raven Symone believe in Bill Cosby’s guilt, I’d like to know what that proof specifically entails. “As more information comes out, we’ll see what happens,” says Goldberg, in the clip below, but how much more information does she need before she begins to believe the more than 40 women that have come forward? Yes he is innocent until proven guilty, but the evidence is leaning very far toward guilt, and Goldberg seems to be dismissive in an effort to protect her friend. With information about his deposition released, in which Cosby admitted to obtaining Quaaludes for the purpose of sex, Goldberg still held firm, implying that she took Quaaludes in the 80’s for recreational purposes, and not for the purpose of rape. As a lawyer, I respect the desire not to try someone in the court of public opinion, but as a random person reading the armchair evidence, I also believe in the smell test, and this thing reeks. Perhaps Whoopi Goldberg has some really great deodorant for Cosby.

Should George Lopez Replace Donald Trump? New Celebrity Apprentice Host?

Written by , Posted in General

TMZ caught George Lopez in transit and asked the well-known Mexican star for his thoughts on Donald Trump, followed by the question of whether he’d replace Trump as the new host of Celebrity Apprentice. He balked at the thought, but he’s actually the perfect pick. His success speaks for itself, and he’d add a missing fun-factor to the boardroom. Sure he can’t say, “You’re Fired,” but I sense a new catch phrase coming. Watch below.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are Done: WHO DUMPED WHO?

Written by , Posted in General

  
Scott Disick’s recent rendezvous with an ex-girlfriend gained national attention, with many suggesting that his “cheating” was the final straw in his already rocky relationship with Kourtney Kardashian. Though the Kardashian spin machine is deep at work, The Dishmaster smells a rat. First, not even Scott Disick is dense enough to openly flirt with an ex while on vacation. Where was his baby Mamma in the mix, and why would he be so casual about getting caught? And if it’s true, as the Kardashian clan suggests, that Disick’s partying played into this rumored “betrayal,” he certainly didn’t look drunk in those pictures. Instead, he looked like a man affectionately touching his new girlfriend, who I can only guess he’s been seeing for some time. 

My uneducated guess is that Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have been separated for months, and in an effort to save face, both parties kept their status a secret. Scott’s only “betrayal” would be his very open display of affection prior to giving his partner an opportunity to release a public statement. Disick might be an alcoholic in need of serious help, but that doesn’t make him a cheater. As for the idea that there’s a common law marriage that could cost Kourtney millions, it’s going to be a long road for Disick, who would have to prove certain strict standards, which likely don’t apply. Good luck.
