Larry David’s Laughs Through SNL Rehearsal: “Can a Bitch Get a Doughnut?”

Written by , Posted in General

For a guy who once quit his writing job at Saturday Night Live only to return the next day and pretend as if it didn’t happen, it must be sweet redemption to rule the stage on his return. He’s Larry David after all, and his notorious irritability is beautifully complimented by his childlike glee. Watch below to see David flub his lines with laughter during the SNL dress rehearsal, in a very funny sketch that got slightly overshadowed by the brilliant ‘Bern Your Enthusiasm.’ Click the second video to see the more polished, live version.

How is Hillary Clinton Losing?! — Here’s My Advice

Written by , Posted in General

  
How does a self-proclaimed socialist in his seventies with no prior following beat a woman who has basically been handed the primary on a silver platter? Bernie Sanders won 55 percent of the female vote in New Hampshire and beat Hillary Clinton 84 percent to 14 percent among Democrats aged 17 to 29. Translation? Young people voted for the old guy and women passed on making history. And Clinton’s “feminist” cohorts aren’t helping, with Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright basically resorting to bullying tactics. Albright sent Hillary’s non-supporters to “hell” and Steinem ironically took an anti-woman stance, accusing young girls of backing Bernie because they want to “go where the boys are,” as if they can’t think past a school-girl crush. So what’s the issue? To quote the Chief Strategist for Barack Obama’s unprecedented presidential campaigns, “When the exact same problems crop up in separate campaigns, with different staff, at what point do the principals say, “Hey, maybe it’s US?”

The primary and sole issue with Hillary Clinton is that she’s inauthentic, and given the plethora of scandals that surround her campaign, only an outstanding orator (like Bill Clinton) could craft a response. But Hillary is the opposite. The American people will forgive just about anything if they feel you’re working in our best interest and you own your errors, but she simply took too long to respond to the email scandal, and her initial brush-off was a bad move. It makes her look entitled. Why does she get to skirt the annoying rules for reading emails and no one else does? And if you don’t think that’s a big deal, then what other rules will you also avoid? Furthermore, if every single thing you say seems canned and rehearsed, I can’t help you. In the history of seeing Hillary speak, I’ve seen one authentic moment, and that’s when she was attacked at the Benghazi hearing. She was in the hot seat, and she was sick, and she had no other choice but to be real. I’ve posted that video below, to remind the public of her authentic self.

To imply that as a woman, I should blindly support another woman is ridiculous. I’d love to see Hillary win. I think she’s capable. But she needs to ditch any attempt at a sense of humor or relaxed demeanor. That’s not who she is. Show your knowledge, show the impatience we saw at the Benghazi hearing, show your prickly, unpolished self. That’s what people want to see. There is no Arsenio saxophone moment for her, and that’s okay.

Steve Harvey Has The Funniest Game Show Moment in History

Written by , Posted in General

It’s impossible to decipher whether the family featured on Steve Harvey’s ‘Family Feud’ is laughing with him or simply too dense to understand the severity of their stupidity. Perhaps they performed poorly under pressure and their brains shut down? Watch below to see one of the funniest game show moments of all time, and then weep for this family who given every opportunity in history, still managed to base their answer on vocal inflection rather than the actual word. If you aren’t a fan of Steve Harvey, you will be now.

Oh mother… | Family Feud

Steve called this jaw dropping moment from Family Feud “The greatest television that won’t be seen.” Is it the worst answer ever? Judge for yourself… Episode airs Feb 23! Go to FamilyFeud.com to check your local listings. #FamilyFeud #FeudHighlight #SteveHarvey

The Super Bowl Halftime Show — My Thoughts

Written by , Posted in General

It would be wildly unfair to compare Coldplay to Beyonce and Bruno Mars. First, Chris Martin is in an actual band and writes his own music (that’s a hit at Beyonce, not Mars, since Mars does in fact co-write his songs). Second, his songs have longstanding impact, and the guy doesn’t dance. Why? Because he doesn’t need to. Anyone who has attended a Coldplay concert is well aware of Martin’s live-performance skills, and in fact — I became a fan only AFTER seeing them live for the first time via my friend’s extra ticket. Having said all that, it’s the Super Bowl, and if you can’t dance, you better call upon people who can. Stay in your lane, and go to others for the glitter. And who better to bring it than Beyonce? Only Queen Bey  can use the Super Bowl as a venue to debut a new song, executing insane choreography, great costumes, and dominating more than just the stage itself. Bruno Mars also deserves accolades, but even the Uptown Funkmaster himself couldn’t hold his own in the Beyonce dance-off, using his turn to simply tilt his head and flutter across the stage with his arms behind his back. Seriously Bruno, you couldn’t push yourself just a tad harder with the choreography? It might not be Chris Martin’s lane, but it’s certainly yours. But Bruno also brought it, and just about anyone would look lesser next to our eternal Single Lady. Watch below to see one of the best halftime shows I’ve seen in some time, and then enjoy some very funny tweets at Chris Martin’s expense. It might be mean spirited, but something tells me Martin can take a good joke.

Why Amber Rose’s Ass-Play Dig at Kanye Was Homophobic

Written by , Posted in General

When Amber Rose indicated Kanye West might prefer ass-play in the bedroom, I was bothered, but my objection was more about the childish exposure of his personal preferences rather than the latent homophobia on hand (pun intended). When Kanye West denied it, I also felt uneasy. First, what’s wrong with ass-play? To each his own. And second, why dignify the “dig” with a public declaration.
It wasn’t until Andy Cohen came forward and expressed moderate outrage at the idea that a penchant for ass-play makes one perverse, that I began to think outside the box (pun also intended). It was then brought to my attention by a certain music insider that Kanye West is in fact the worst person to be involved in this exchange, given that he’s actually an LGBT advocate. Ever wonder why you don’t hear the word “faggot” in hip -hop songs anymore? Well . . . we have Kanye to thank. During an interview with MTV ten years ago, West called upon the hip-hop community to cut out its anti-gay antics, saying hip-hop “has always been about “speaking your mind and about breaking down barriers, but everyone in hip-hop discriminates against gay people.” He was one of the first to speak out, and its use has drastically declined since.

So what happens when the man who advocates for equal rights is exposed as someone who also enjoys some digital delights? Perhaps he should have just remained quiet, closed his bedroom doors and continued to do what he likes, but the far better move would be to unite with Andy Cohen and call out the comment for what it is — homophobic.

Did Andy Cohen Just Call Amber Rose a Bigot?

Written by , Posted in General

  
When Amber Rose exposed Kanye West’s love for a certain sexual act in response to Kanye dragging her into his fight with Wiz Khalifa, many things occurred to me, none of which were that it was insulting to gay people. But leave it to Andy Cohen, the man on the pulse of pop culture to provide a little clarity. When asked about the incident, he said, “I actively don’t care. I just think it’s interesting that it seems like sticking a finger up someone’s butt is the biggest insult these days. That seems like a cultural sign of the times.” And there you have it.

“Aunt Vivian” Blasts Will Smith . . . AGAIN

Written by , Posted in General

 If you’d like to prove you’re normal and easy to work with, referring to yourself in the third person is probably not the best way to go. When Janet Hubert visited ‘The Real’ to “clear the air” about her contentious past with Will Smith and her exit from ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ (which resulted in her character being replaced by another actor), she sounded just as angry as she did in a previous interview when she said, “There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an a–hole like Will Smith. He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never, ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology … he doesn’t know the word.” Will Smith himself has addressed the controversy over the years, once telling an Atlanta radio station that “Janet Hubert wanted the show to be ‘The Aunt Viv of Bel Air Show,” and she once said, “I’ve been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.”

Caitlyn Jenner’s New Interview: “Kris Knew About My Transition When We Met”

Written by , Posted in General

There’s a lot of tension between Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner as to just how much Kris knew about Bruce’s gender issues when they first began dating, and Kris has adamantly insisted on her ignorance. According to a new interview with Caitlyn, she was a 36B when she first met Kris, and she actually had her breasts removed at the time. The rules, Caitlyn said, were that she could dress as a woman while traveling, but not in their marital home.

If Caitlyn’s account of the facts are accurate, I can imagine that Kris would face questions she is not prepared to answer. Was she so enamored with the prospect of marrying an Olympic gold medalist that she turned a blind eye to his gender issues? Was she so in love that she decided to simply look the other direction in hopes it was just a passing urge? Who knows. I’d imagine that Caitlyn is sick of Kris “playing the victim,” given some of their on-screen interactions, and if she did in fact know, then there’s far less sympathy headed her direction. Watch Caitlyn confess to the curious timeline below.
