‘Big Brother’ Viewers and the Rest of America Should Never Be Surprised by Racism

BREAKING NEWS: There are racist people in the world! So racist in fact that they would spew their crazy hatred and unfunny stereotype-themed jokes all over television and other public outlets because they literally don’t see anything wrong with it.

Recently we’ve witnessed varying degrees of this with Paula Deen, Big Brother contestants Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman and the news program KTVU, who stupidly reported the names of Asiana flight 214’s pilots as “Ho Lee Fuk” and “Bang Ding Ow.”

I’m not saying that it’s not a big deal, or that these people don’t deserve to be reprimanded, but being surprised that racism exists in 2013 is a whole other kind of ignorance.  Continue reading “‘Big Brother’ Viewers and the Rest of America Should Never Be Surprised by Racism”

Joe Manganiello’s Giant Extremities Turn Sharon Osbourne to Mush

joe manganiello handsSome boys can’t keep their cool around Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models, and some girls fall to pieces in the presence of 6’5″ werewolf strippers.

I’m referring to Sharon Osbourne’s wandering eye during a sit-down on The Talk with True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello.

As Joe explained his storyline on season 6 and the time he decided to accept the role in Magic Mike because of his What to Expect When You’re Expecting co-star Chris Rock, a visibly distracted Sharon fondled his enormous hands.

“Look at these hands, look how big they are…. You have big feet too,” she screeched.  Continue reading “Joe Manganiello’s Giant Extremities Turn Sharon Osbourne to Mush”

Lady Gaga and Little Monsters Vs. Kelly and Sharon Osbourne (…and Joan Rivers)

Lady Gaga Kelly OsbourneLast week, Kelly Osbourne started a feud with Lady Gaga after telling Fabulous magazine that Gaga needs to put a leash on her fans because they are the ‘worst in the world.’

Gaga responded to Osbourne telling the press that Little Monsters told her to kill herself and that they hope she gets raped in a lengthy online message that read:

“I have empathy for you Kelly, but I feel it culturally important to note that you have chosen a less compassionate path.”

This is in reference to Fashion Police, the show in which Joan Rivers wittily compares women’s dresses to tampons, which Gaga says is “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.”  Continue reading “Lady Gaga and Little Monsters Vs. Kelly and Sharon Osbourne (…and Joan Rivers)”

911 Good Samaritan Override Would Have Resulted in Serious Charges for Stephanie Bongiovi, or Worse

Jon Bon Jovi’s teenage daughter Stephanie overdosed on heroin last Wednesday in her dorm room and was not charged because of a brilliant thing called the 911 Good Samaritan law in New Jersey that prevents overdose victims and those who seek medical attention for the victims from being prosecuted.

The preventative measure is active in several other states including Washington, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Connecticut, and New York. Sadly, Chris Christie is looking to overturn the 911 Good Samaritan Emergency Response Act in NJ because he feels that it of a fear that it could inadvertently give drug dealers immunity.

Governor Christie’s state is one of many where overdoses are the leading cause of accidental deaths.

Ladies Of ‘The Talk’ Take Off Their Faces…

The five hosts of The Talk made history on Monday when they taped an entire show completely bare-faced, without makeup, wearing only robes and towels.

“We really are girlfriends and because we feel safe with each other, we’re willing to show more of ourselves to the public,” explained show creator Sara Gilbert.

I missed the show because Andy Murray’s U.S. Open win interrupted my DVR settings, but I did see clips and photos later.

If Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Julie Chen and Aisha Tyler were having a contest to see who looked the best without even a hint of concealer, beloved Girl On Guy podcast-founder and Archer star Aisha Tyler would prevail.  Continue reading “Ladies Of ‘The Talk’ Take Off Their Faces…”

Sharon Leaving AGT Because NBC’s ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ Rejected Jack Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne was suspected to be leaving NBC America’s Got Talent last week after she tweeted to fellow judge Howard Stern “My darling @HowardStern, money is not the reason I’m not returning to @nbcagt, it’s because…”

Well, now we know the “because.”

The celebrity military competition show Stars Earn Stripes, also on NBC, turned down her son Jack because the “rigors of the show were too intense for him,” (because of his multiple sclerosis) according to the producer.

“I just can’t be fake, It’s discrimination, and it was badly handled,” she told the NY Post. “It’s time to move one. They can’t make me do something I don’t want to do, all they can do is stop me from being a judge on another network for five years.”  Continue reading “Sharon Leaving AGT Because NBC’s ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ Rejected Jack Osbourne”

LL Cool J Teaches The Ladies Of ‘The Talk’ The ‘Tandem Turkey Twist’

LL Cool J visited The Talk to discuss the Grammys, his recently deceased friend Heavy D and to teach the ladies some completely impractical turkey-related exercises to get their chair-formed arses a lift of mama-said-knock-you-out proportions.

Sara Gilbert refused to hold a turkey because she’s a vegan (Pshh I was a vegetarian for six years and I never pretended meat didn’t exist for other people) ANYWAY she held a pumpkin instead while Mr. Cool J had them “work their cores” by handing off birds while standing back to back.
