In January, when Katy Perry and her boyfriend Travis McCoy broke up, she announced that she was going to be celibate for a year. Don’t we all say that when relationships go horribly wrong? Well I don’t — I like to get my rebounds underway as soon as possible, but whatever — most people swear off sex when they are jaded. Perry and McCoy reunited and though she now claims that she’d rather die than be celibate for a whole year, she won’t be having any random encounters.
According to Perry, anonymous sex is icky. She told WENN, “Getting your flirt on is the best thing in the world, but when it comes to sharing bodily fluids with a person I don’t know – no thank you. For me, it’s not a past time, going out and meeting people and trying to hook up with people. That actually makes me feel disgusting. From a really early age, I was really sensitive to that.” Of course, since Katy Perry is 24, I’d love to know at exactly what “really early age” she became so sensitive to one-night stands.
The Supreme Court of California announced today that they chose to uphold Proposition 8, which forbids same-sex marriage. The good news here? The 18,000 marriages that were performed while same-sex marriage was legal in California are still valid.
The 6-1 decision was issued by the same court that declared a year ago that a state law defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman violated the right to choose one’s spouse and discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation.
Prop. 8 undid that ruling. The author of last year’s 4-3 decision, Chief Justice Ronald George, said today that the voters were within their rights to approve a constitutional amendment redefining marriage to include only male-female couples.
Justice Carlos Moreno, in a lone dissent, said a majority should not be allowed to deprive a minority of fundamental rights by passing an initiative.
The justices ruled unanimously that Prop. 8 was not retroactive and that gay and lesbian couples who relied on the court’s May 2008 ruling to get married before the Nov. 4 election will remain legally wed.
Sooooo tonight we protest peacefully to remind the world that same-sex marriage is a CIVIL RIGHT that many of us in this country support. I look at this as yet another opportunity to galvanize the nation into action. Since Prop 8 passed, there have already been many victories for equality — same-sex marriage has been approved in Iowa, Connecticut, Vermont and Maine, and legislation is pending in New Hampshire and New York. THIS FIGHT IS FAR FROM OVER, and I am certain that justice will win out eventually. This is no time to be discouraged — it’s time to get even louder with our convictions.

I fully admit I was never a faithful Jon & Kate Plus 8 viewer. I had seen a couple episodes and had quickly determined that Kate was a controlling wench of a wife. This weekend there was a Jon & Kate marathon on TLC. I obviously couldn’t watch all of it because I do have kids of my own that need attention, but I did watch a lot of episodes and feel like I have a better picture of the Gosselin family. Oh, and I still think Kate is a controlling wench of a wife.
I don’t understand why people talking about the decline of the Gosselin marriage. In every episode I saw, no matter what season, Jon looked miserable, stoned and completely checked out. He never got a word in edgewise and on the rare occasion that he was allowed to articulate a thought, Kate would edit what he was saying and reinterpret it in her own words.
So what did you think of last night’s premiere? First of all, I don’t know why Jon and Kate didn’t come out and say that they are separated — they so obviously are. Jon Gosselin is done, outta there, so over it. My guess is that they’ll keep up this “working on it” facade for this season and then that will be it for the show. Of course I also fully expect Kate Gosselin to get a cooking show on Food Network — it’s the next logical career step for her.
Can we talk about Kate for a minute? She strikes me as very manipulative and disingenuous. In last night’s episode it seemed as if she was very intentionally trying to be more likable. She laughed a lot, tried to be friendly with the other moms at the birthday party, was overly affectionate with her kids. Clearly, she’s rallying public support.
I’m also wondering if anyone took a count of how many times the phrases “for the kids,” and “doing it on my own,” were uttered? It’s tough being a single parent but “doing it on my own” doesn’t have quite the same impact when you are getting paid $65,000 an episode to basically do a craft with your kids on camera. And it also doesn’t have quite the same impact when you have three hundred dollars of highlights and lowlights on your head.
Is there one J&K+8 fan out there willing to say that they believe the Gosselin’s will work through this strife and stay together?
Do I hear crickets?
In their continuing practice of being as offensive as possible, Paris and her boyfriend tried having sex in a bathroom this weekend which resulted in them getting kicked off a yacht.
It all started when Elton John’s husband, David Furnish invited Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt to a party being held on a friend’s yacht. That act alone shows some serious bad judgment on the part of Furnish but it pales in comparison to the trashtastic duo. The couple arrived and were immediately inappropriate. Like every other public appearance they make, they immediately started making out, groping each other and sticking their tongues down each other’s throats.
That just wasn’t enough attention whoring. They proceeded downstairs to a bathroom where things escalated before they were interrupted. The captain was informed of what was going on and had them kicked off the still docked ship. Yes!
In fairness to Paris, she’s a simple thing. She was on a boat, saw a door that had a sign on it that read “head” and obediently proceeded. She’s really not to blame.
Not that we didn’t already know, but, for the record, Mel Gibson’s rep has finally confirmed that his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva is, in fact,
guaranteed a bunch of his money pregnant with his demon spawn.
In fact, Mel shared the news with his friend Jay Leno during a recent Tonight Show taping for an episode that will air this week — Leno’s last episode as the host of the show. What a fantastic goodbye gift: Another Gibson kid on the loose. The Malibu rehabs are already planning the new wing they’ll be able to build.
“I guess I’m ‘Octo-Mel,’” quipped Gibson, who has seven kids with his estranged wife.
Ahhhhhh ha ha ha ha. You’re so funny, Mel. And by “funny” I of course mean “bigoted.”
I don’t even know what to say. This is so horrible, beyond words.
Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter Exodus is on life support after an accident involving home exercise equipment, the Associated Press reports.
In what police in Phoenix call a tragic accident Monday morning at Tyson’s home there, the girl was reportedly found by her 7-year-old brother with her neck caught in a cable attached to a treadmill. The boy alerted the girl’s mother in another room. Her mother called 911 and tried to revive her, according to the AP. Mike Tyson was said to be in Las Vegas at the time of the accident, but has returned home.
Phoenix police Sgt. Andy Hill told FOX News, “Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console – it’s kind of a loop. Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it.”
Emergency personnel performed CPR on Exodus, who was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital where she remains on life support, according to the Fox News report. Sgt. Hill described her condition as “extremely critical.”
What an awful, awful accident. It’s the kind of thing that seems like nobody’s fault. It’s just unspeakably awful. Hasn’t this family been through enough? My thoughts and prayers are with the Tyson family right now.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Ashley Greene and the rest of the kiddos descended on Italy this weekend, where New Moon will be shooting on location. Robert flew in from Cannes while Ashley and Kristen flew together from Vancouver. Also in tow: Kirsten’s boyfriend, Michael Angarano, so you can ignore all the rumors about Kristen and Robert having a “romantic” dinner together last night. Her boyfriend was right there.
