Paula Deen is Martin Luther Rosa King Parks Compared to Mel Gibson and Others

Paula Deen black friendPaula Deen is not only being fired from the Food Network, but also having her products “phased out” by Sears, Home Depot, QVC, Kmart and Walgreens for admitting that she has used the N-word in the past has me thinking about related celebrity scandals.

For instance, how bad is this when compared to comedians like Michael Richards using the N-word multiple times in a recorded stand-up show or Daniel Tosh making rape jokes at a heckler’s expense?

Then there’s Grey’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington, perhaps the most similar to Paula Deen because the questionable word he was said to have uttered wasn’t caught on camera until he stupidly told a Golden Globes press room “No, I did not call T.R. [Knight, his Grey’s co-star] a f*ggot.”  Continue reading “Paula Deen is Martin Luther Rosa King Parks Compared to Mel Gibson and Others”

Take Your Butter Money and Run, Girl: Paula Deen Fired From Food Network

Paula Deen apology videoPaula Deen, Mistress of Carbs, maker of delicious, oozing vodka-soaked chicken with chocolate sauce and essence of Hostess Twinkies, has been terminated by the Food Network after she attempted to apologize (twice) for casually admitting that she uses the n-word.

Before telling the public they’d chosen not to renew her contract, the Food Network issued a statement assuring everyone that they do not tolerate bigotry no matter how delicious the bigot’s food is.

“Food Network does not tolerate any form of discrimination and is a strong proponent of diversity and inclusion. We will continue to monitor the situation,” they clarified.

Mrs. Deen and her people scrambled all day to set it right, booking an appearance on the Today Show that was eventually cancelled in favor of a second apology video (first HERE).

Clumps of mascara circled her eyes like helicopters behind Snoop Dogg’s house as her tears [and the tears of her fans] soaked into the ground and gave all the worms and moles severe chest pains and a sudden shooting pain in their arm.  CLICK to watch the video…

Scott Weiland Thought He Was Still in Stone Temple Pilots, Until He Turned on His Computer

Scott Weiland angryI can’t even remember how many times Stone Temple Pilots have broken up and gotten back together since the 90’s, when I bought a worn-out, nicotine-smelling cassette tape of Core.

I know you think it’s because of drugs, and I’m sure it partially is, but it’s also been said that Scott is a huge diva narcissist who never shows up anywhere on time…

Most recently, the three vocally challenged Pilot members wrote that they had “officially” fired Weiland on their website, just one day after he insisted the rumors of a break-up were “all hearsay.”

Weiland responded with a statement of his own, revealing that he didn’t know what had happened until he read about it in the news on Feb. 27.  Continue reading “Scott Weiland Thought He Was Still in Stone Temple Pilots, Until He Turned on His Computer”

Britney Spears Fired Herself From ‘The X Factor’

Britney Spears pink dress x factor 1Today it was announced that Britney Spears removed herself from The X Factor before Simon Cowell canned her and her cans for delivering the wrong kind of crazy.

As much as I love her I don’t think I’ll miss the polite clapping and three or four-word comments like “I really enjoyed it” or “You’re a diva!” (in a positive context).

Come on. This is no surprise. We knew from the get-go that this was a one time thing. Britney was paid $15 million to make faces and walk out and wave with Demi in the beginning of the show for a few months…

She probably wants to come back about as much as Simon wants her to, which is not at all. It’s time for her to work on her music, and sit at home ordering Fox Racing gear for her sons. Continue reading “Britney Spears Fired Herself From ‘The X Factor’”

Angus T. Jones Wants To Be Fired From ‘Two and a Half Men’

Two And A Half Men has regrettably been on since 2003, and one of its stars is fed up with the fame and the $350,000 per-episode check.

Angus T. Jones, the half-man who plays Jon Cryer’s son, is denouncing the show because of God, and television being bad for your brain.

“If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men. I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it,” 19-year-old Jesus Jones aka Jake Harper explains in a video for Forerunner Christian Church (their website has a fascinating “about” section, explaining the lord’s interest in real estate).

‘You Knew Me Better Than This:’ Jennifer Lopez Shames Fans Who Believed She Had A Maid Fired Over An Autograph

With pop stars, I tend to like the music more than the person behind it, but in the case of Jennifer Lopez, I like the person better than the music.

That’s not to say that she’s Mother Teresa, who danced on handcrafted wooden tables instead of Fiats (big difference), but I did doubt the credibility of a hotel maid who claimed Yennifer got her fired her because she wanted an autograph.

“C’mon thought you knew me better than this.. Would never get anyone fired over an autograph. 1st I heard of this was on twitter. #hurtful,” LoFiat tweeted as a response to anyone who thought the story wasn’t total caca.

Tyra Banks Makes Room For New Faces, Fires Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel And Miss J

Tyra Banks and America’s Next Top Model co-creator Ken Mok have fired runway coach “Miss” J. Alexander, creative director Jay Manuel and judge since season two Nigel Barker.

That’s every recognizable face on the show besides Tyra, gone.

The three will have vanished by the 19th season (18 is currently running) and there’s no word on whether current harpy judge Kelly Cutrone will stay.

Barker told E! News that he wasn’t taken aback:

“It wasn’t a shock. I’m friends with Tyra and the producers. There had been a discussion that ratings were down and that something like this would happen.”  Continue reading “Tyra Banks Makes Room For New Faces, Fires Nigel Barker, Jay Manuel And Miss J”

D.C. Teacher Fired For Using Terrifying Story Problems In Lesson Plan

A teacher in Washington D.C. was fired from Trinidad Center City Charter School after utilizing math problems that involved vampires, aliens, blood, murder, terrorists, tobacco, and cannibals. Here’s an example of that very thing:

“My 3 friends and I were caught and tied up by 1023 screaming cannibals in a jungle last night. Soon we were feeling terribly itchy because of the mosquitoes. We begged the cannibals to scratch us. 219 cannibals refused because they were busy cutting vegetables. The rest of them surrounded us and began to scratch us with their teeth, just like dogs. It felt good! How many cannibals scratched me?”  Continue reading “D.C. Teacher Fired For Using Terrifying Story Problems In Lesson Plan”

Rihanna Fired Jay-Z

Rihanna is reportedly firing Jay-Z, her mentor and supposed “discoverer,” after complications arose with Jay’s company RocNation.

She is in the midst of suing her “official” manager’s sister, over issues with a crappy leaky house that she bought for $7 million dollars.
