President Obama called James Franco “James Flacco”

President Obama Holds News Conference Before Hawaii Vacation

Everyone is talking about Sony’s decision to bow to the demands of the Guardians of Peace hackers by not only canceling the release of the Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy The Interview, but to delete every sign of the movie’s existence online, deleting its official website, trailer, etc.

We all have our opinions on the situation, even President Barack Obama. He thinks the whole thing is a bit of a mess. I mean, who gets upset over a movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco? Yeah, you heard me right – James Flacco… the Baltimore Ravens quarterback? Yikes. That’s right, Obama confused these two men when discussing the North Korea fiasco:

I mean, we all make mistakes, right? At least John Travolta probably feels a little less alone these days…

 

Kim Kardashian sent Kris Jenner a very special email

kim kardashian kris jenner

I’m pretty sure Kris Jenner is some sort of evil mastermind, hell bent on controlling the lives of her daughters – each of whom she’s whored out to the highest bidder since they were able to make duck lips on Instagram – and everything about them: their money, their image, their business endorsements, etc. She also knows just how to put them in their places when they get a bit too cheeky for their own good. That has to be true, since I can’t think of another reason Kris felt the need to share an email sent to her by her most lucrative daughter (for the moment), Kim Kardashian:


I’m not quite sure what to make of the fact that Kim thinks Amish is spelled “omish”, though perhaps we can’t blame her for spelling phonetically. I suppose we should be lucky she can compose an email at all. Besides, maybe she’s right – maybe we do need more “chic, tights dresses” in our lives. What do I know?

Either way, I think Kris is an evil genius who thought, “Huh, you think you’re telling me something about fashion? I’ll humiliate you!”… though considering no one ever believed Kim was a Mensa scholar, I don’t know how effective that plan was.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have adorable kids

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are definitely one of the most adorable Hollywood families. They’ve been together for like, a lifetime, and have two adorable kids – 4-year-old twins named Harper and Gideon. So cute are these kids that their cuteness could not be contained and NPH had to share a video of them decorating the family Christmas tree and singing ‘Jingle Bells’. I mean, look at this:


Yay! David is back home, and the family all together! Time to trim us a tree! #trim #carols #JingleFeels

Stephen Collins molested underage girls because he’s a “flawed person”

stephen collins

Welp, if you can’t get legit acting jobs anymore because you’re a child molester so no one wants to hire you, the next best thing is to try and pocket some cash – and some sympathy! – by parading around in front of the press talking about what a changed man you are and how you only made little girls touch your junk because you’re a “flawed person” and Jesus forgives you for it.

Go on then, Stephen Collins

In the church, it’s actually one of the things I love about the church … Christ says in so many ways, “Bring me that which about you is broken. Bring it.” And, most people are broken in some way…

Most people either get to or have to or choose to hide it. This came out. I didn’t choose this to come out. I didn’t want to have to deal with these things publicly. I had dealt with them very, very strongly and committedly in my private life. I think I’m a human being with flaws and I’ve done everything I can to address them.

Collins also claims he had no trouble at all playing a pastor on 7th Heaven because his child molesting was like a totally different person. WTF?

Look, I’d never say that a person can’t change or that someone’s personal faith can’t help to redeem them, but as someone pointed out in the Gawker comments that covered this, “Jesus is the ultimate tap-out”. There are SO many Christians (and yes, other religions, but I’m talking about Christians here) who think that they don’t need to face any actual, real-life consequences for stuff because they’ve asked Jesus to forgive them and so they’re square now. That’s not how life works, bro. Your ass still deserves to be in jail, you should still be forced to face the realities of what you did – your Bible-thumping does not absolve you.

Amanda Bynes wants to be a psychologist

amanda bynes

Amanda Bynes recently got herself released from a mental health facility and despite exhibiting behaviour that pretty much proves she’s in need of serious professional help, she’s managed to sort of, kind of get it together a bit and hasn’t set anyone’s driveway on fire or threatened to kill her dad again recently. In fact, she’s doing so well that she apparently wants to go back to school… to study psychology.

Amanda Bynes has her sights set on USC and the psychology department … but this time not as a patient.

Amanda took a VIP tour of the campus Wednesday and we’re told she told the folks with whom she interacted she wanted to enroll in the school as a psych major.

It makes sense … Amanda has had more than her share of interactions with shrinks over the last two years. A staffer from the admissions department told TMZ … the school does not hold mental illness against any applicant … if they’re qualified and able to engage in studies, that’s all that matters.

As for her tour … several students saw her on the golf cart tooling around campus with headphones, singing “Roar” by Katy Perry.

A USC staffer tells us the earliest she could be admitted is next Fall.

I mean, I want to have high hopes for Amanda. I want to believe that she’s on her meds and stabilized and doing better, but when you’ve got as many issues as she does, it’s unpredictable and NEVER guaranteed to last. Don’t forget, the last time she got out of the mental health facility, she went back to school to study fashion design and then lost it again. I feel like she won’t ever make it into this USC program (or she probably wouldn’t be admitted), but who knows. Maybe it will work out for her, and I hope it does.

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are engaged

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have only been dating for about 6 months, but apparently things have been going well. So well, in fact, that the pair have reportedly decided that they want to get married and are now engaged! At least according to US Weekly

“Everyone thinks it’s wild but are so happy for them,” one source told Us. “Benji always tends to fall in love easily, but this time it’s for real and he landed a great girl. They obviously both make each other incredibly happy and there’s nothing better than that.”

“He is more traditional then her,” the pal said. “She really doesn’t care about getting married but wants babies. He wants to get engaged and married first.”

Huh, I feel like I’ve read lots of interviews with Cameron in which she says she doesn’t really want a house full of rugrats, but maybe I’m imagining that and projecting a bit. If this is true, I suppose a congratulations is in order for them. It sounds like a disaster in the making to me, but crazier things have happened!
