John Travolta and Kelly Preston may finally divorce and I say finally because I think people have been wondering how many decades more Ms. Preston was going to spend being Mr. John “I’m Totally Straight And I Never Grab Dongs“ Travolta’s human shield while letting her own career die. Or, to quote our own Jennifer, since she did it so well,
John Travolta is gayer than a rainbow feather boa around a drag queen’s neck as she rides on a float in the gay pride parade.
The National Enquirer has some goodies for us:
JOHN TRAVOLTA and his wife KELLY PRESTON are headed toward a $220 million divorce!
That’s what pals of the couple are telling The ENQUIRER, and sources say that humiliated Kelly told her hubby of 21 years that they’re through for good unless he becomes more supportive of her career.
“Kelly has had it up to here with John,” confided a source close to the couple. “She’s tired of always having to take care of their family while he goes off gallivanting around the globe, for work or pleasure. Now it’s her time.”
The couple’s latest problem began in mid-March when Kelly got an opportunity star in the pilot of a new sitcom called “Keep Calm and Karey On” in L.A.
“John completely poohed-poohed it,” SAID THE source. “He wanted her to stay put in Florida and take care of their kids.”
Kelly, 50, had put her career on hold after the couple’s 16-year-old son Jett tragically died in January 2009, and then she got pregnant with their son Benjamin, now 2. They also have daughter Ella, who is 13.
“Kelly and John had a knock-down, drag-out fight at their Florida home that ended with her stalking off and going to Los Angeles,” said the source. “And she told John that unless he changed his tune and started to carry more of the weight in the marriage, she’d see him in divorce court.”
There is a lot at stake as Travolta’s vast fortune includes expensive planes, vintage cars and pricey homes on both coasts.
And then there’s the whole gay thing:
Travolta’s lack of support for Kelly’s career is a real blow to her, say sources, since she’s stood staunchly by him as he was hit with a string of lurid gay scandals. In May 2012, two male masseurs filed sexual battery suits against the “Saturday Night Fever” star in federal court.
Although Travolta’s attorney vehemently denied the claims, several more men have come forward with similar accusations against him.
Hey John…you better shape up. ‘Cause she needs a man (she needs a man). Who can keep her satisfied. Emotionally, because she needs a lot of support and wants you to respect her career and see her as a woman with her own needs and not just the mother of your children. (I think that was the first draft of “You’re The One That I Want.”)

John Travolta is gayer than a rainbow feather boa around a drag queen’s neck as she rides on a float in the gay pride parade, but he still won’t come out. Instead, he gets massages and then tries to hump on the masseuses and when they file lawsuits, he denies it until he’s blue in the face. However, sometimes there are money grubbers who will try to make an easy dime from a celebrity, and turns out at least one of the masseuses was less than honest, as his lawsuit against the actor – claiming that Travolta forced him to get naked before trying to get freaky with him – has been thrown out.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The attorneys for John Travolta and a cruise ship worker accusing the actor of assault stipulated to the dismissal of a high-profile lawsuit.
The lawsuit was filed by Fabian Zanzi, a ship attendant on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship that carried Travolta as a passenger in June 2009. Zanzi says that upon request, he gave Travolta a neck massage. Travolta allegedly disrobed, exposed himself and then “forcefully embraced” him.
On Friday, a judge denied Travolta’s attempt to throw it into arbitration. On Monday, the parties agreed to drop the case. Neither party was available to discuss what prompted the dismissal.
In the lawsuit, Travolta gave his own sworn declaration.
“While I was indeed a passenger aboard the MS Enchantment of the Seas in or about June 2009, Mr. Zanzi’s allegations in the Complaint are entirely false, including… a purported physical encounter with me and his allegations… regarding an alleged financial offer I made him. None of these events happened, and Zanzi’s allegations are pure fabrication.”
Fair play to Travolta on this one, but one liar doesn’t make the rest of them unreliable. I know Scientology probably isn’t into Adam and Steve over Adam and Eve, but get with it and just come out already, for crying out loud. Seriously, it’s okay, wade in. The water’s just fine!

Hint: it’s this video of their brand new Christmas song, “I Think You Might Like It.”
Ok, but for real, this shit is awful. This is so bad. This is worse than anything else that has ever happened. There aren’t even words that could come close to accurately describing this mess, and you know what? I love that. I love that they went for it. I love that they’re shitting all over my fond memories of watching Grease with my sister and asking her why I kind of felt like I needed to pee but not really when John Travolta started dancing. Because I love feeling feelings, and this video makes me feel basically all of them.
Did you love it, too?

“I was in Shanghai recently at a work event and the Master of Ceremonies’ best friend had recently gotten into a car wreck. He had broken his ankle and was in constant pain. I asked him permission to do some Scientology assists and he said, ‘Okay sure’. People were standing around watching as I did them. You could actually see him confronting the pain and after a while he looked up at me and said ‘I feel better’ so I said ‘Okay end of assist.’ He had gotten noticeably better and I was chomping at the bit for more.”
I don’t want to start any drama or anything, but has Tom Cruise seen this? Because I think the role of Magic Scientologist Actor is already taken. It seems like John is stepping on some toes here, and I just don’t want anything bad to happen to him. When it comes to crazy Scientologists, I probably like John’s movies the best, and I don’t want to sit through another Mission Impossible movie when John could get back with Kirstie Alley and do another Look Who’s Talking.
Okay. End of assist.

“Believe me, it took everything that I had, inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John. And be with John for the rest of my life.”
This would be Kirstie Alley, to Barbara Walters, on John Travolta during their time of filming ‘Look Who’s Talking’. She said in a later portion of the interview that John was the “love of her life,” and I want the two of them to run off together, right now, and be together for the rest of their lives, but not, because children and wives and boyfriends and gay lovers all over the place would be hurt by the selfish decision of two people to back out on their respective relationships to be with someone they once cared about over twenty years ago. But it would be sort of romantic (?) in a warped kind of way, huh?
I guess that’s why Kirstie was always so gung-ho that John wasn’t (or isn’t) homosexual—it’s either because it’s true, or because she’d just end up with the shitty end of the stick, no pun intended*.
*That pun thing? I lied. It was totally intended.

“There needs to be, like, a professional athlete that comes out. And a movie star! It’s time…Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this.”
First of all, it’s none of Rashida’s business when it comes to John Travolta making the decision to come out or not. Do I think he’s gay? Well, yes. Does Rashida? Apparently. Does the rest of the world? More than likely. However, I don’t know where there’s anything written down in the Gay Creed about “coming out” being an integral part of the homosexual experience. You know, some people are very private about who they date, what kind of person they like, how their relationships turn out … why should gay people be any different? Why is it mandatory that people “come out” if they don’t choose to? If I had a particular type, say, 6′ tall, dark hair, stubble-faced, and blue eyes, do I need to go around wearing a signboard that says so? Should I go ’round making public statements to the tune of, “Yes, my type, ladies and gentlemen, is tall, dark, and handsome?” No, because that would just be stupid. People would be all like, “Oh, OK, wow. That’s news right there, now, isn’t it?” Dumb.
I’m not a Travolta-lover by any means, because if the masseur-assaulting has any bit of truth to it, that’s just messed up, but I don’t think—at all—that someone should be forced or coaxed to come out if they don’t feel the innate need. Come on.
Go back to ironically dating Jake Gyllenhaal or whatever, Rashida, because unless you actually start doing something interesting, we’re probably not going to talk about you again for some time, OK, girl? Will that be alright with you?
