God, it truly is a wonderful time to be alive. The Supreme Court finally ruled to legalize marriage equality, True Detective is back on the air, and NBC finally fired Donald Trump for being a racist prick. Ain’t life grand?! The final straw was the INSANE speech he gave last week when announcing his intention to run for president (LOLOL), wherein he claimed that all Mexicans are drug-addicted rapists that are contributing to the downfall of this here great country of ours. It truly came off as the rantings of a mad man, and NBC gave him a taste of his old medicine with the whole “You’re fired!” bit.
Donald Trump has been fired from NBC because of his recent comments about Mexicans, but hey, business is business, so there’s a catch.
NBC just said, “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBC Universal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”
The network says ‘Miss USA’ and ‘Miss Universe’ will no longer air on NBC.
As for “The Apprentice,” the network notes Trump has already said he won’t participate because of his presidential run.
BUT … the network says, “Celebrity Apprentice” is a Mark Burnett production and “that relationship will continue.” And guess who hosts that show? NBC did not say it would demand a different host.
He’s now threatening to sue the network, anyway, so I doubt any kind of relationship between the two will continue. But hey, I’m sure Fox News will pick up the series!
Trump is – in words he would use himself – a “major loser”. The sooner this asshole disappears from the public eye, the better. It’s once again been made clear that money certainly can’t buy you a working brain, and he’s living proof.
Can you believe that Clueless came out 20 years ago? I seriously start feeling crazy when I think about how fast time flies and how it literally feels like half that time. What is happening?! Anyway, Clueless was the first time we were really introduced to Paul Rudd, and pretty much EVERYONE had a crush on him, including me. And, well, including Paul himself, as he recently joked at an Ant-Man press conference.
“Who didn’t have a crush on Paul Rudd in Clueless?” asked Evangeline Lilly, who appears opposite him in the Marvel film, at a press conference promoting the film in Los Angeles on Saturday. “He was so dreamy.”
“I know, it’s crazy,” shrugged Rudd, 46. “I fell in love with me. It’s unbelievable, isn’t it?”
Mock-cockiness aside, Rudd said he was pleased that he’d been able to grow his career since Clueless, which was only his third movie.
“I have gratitude and am so appreciative that I’ve been able to continue to work doing something that I love,” he said. “Not only doing something that I love, but working on movies that I’ve loved. I always try and keep that, kind of saying, ‘I want to work on things that I would want to see.’ For a large part of my career, the vast majority, that’s been true. And I’m just very, very appreciative of that.”
It’s a shame Ant-Man is a thing, because it seems like it’s going to be a disaster, but who knows, maybe not. Plus, I think he’s done enough at this point to earn himself a pass on a few clunkers.
For many years, Elizabeth Berkley absolutely hated Showgirls, to the point where she wouldn’t discuss it or so much as acknowledge it existed. After all, it was supposed to be her huge breakout role, her star-maker. Instead, it was a box office flop that became a cult hit, and it’s only now – 20 years later – that she’s finally sorta okay with the whole thing.
Apparently she was so humiliated by Showgirls that she actually stopped dancing for years because of it. But last week, at a screening of the movie full of 4,000 people at Cinespia’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles last week, Berkley showed up and addressed the crowd, who clearly love Showgirls, no matter what the critics have said.
“Tonight is like this magical full-circle moment where I actually didn’t get to experience the sweetness of the screening with a crowd that embraced it. I wanted to thank you guys for giving me this gift of truly getting a full-circle moment of experiencing the joy with you because you guys and the love you have for this movie have made this the cult film that it is.”

Strangely enough, I’ve never watched Showgirls, so I can’t comment either way. What I will say is that Elizabeth Berkley has the most insane skin I’ve ever seen on a living woman ever. Like, it GLOWS, and not in an “I’m wearing too much makeup” way. I’ve seen that shit up close and personal, and it’s real.
Teresa first surfaced at the end of May, when she thanked well-wishes for their support. She then popped up again this week to express her happiness over the marriage equality news and to again offer her thanks to her fans.
Thank you for your outpouring of support and for standing by me through this most difficult time. Love love love you all!
It’s nice that she’s keeping her spirits up, getting buff (while getting cheated on, apparently) and all that, but how the hell is it PRISON if you’ve got access to every single thing you have in the outside world? I honestly need to Federal Correctional Institute in Danbury, Connecticut (which is where Teresa is) to explain this to me. Serious bullshit.
Okay, I don’t even LIKE Paris Hilton and I’m telling you this shit is not cool. While in Dubai to open a new hotel, Paris was somehow convinced to take an aerial tour of the city in some fancy plane. Except it wasn’t really an aerial tour, it was actually a setup for an Egyptian prank TV show, and what happened was terrifying and cruel (and okay, basically the most INSANE prank ever).
Basically, the pilot was a stunt ace and all the other passengers were actors, just waiting to trick Paris into thinking she was about to die on board this metal hellbird. I would have SHIT myself, I’m telling you. The video will make you anxious as hell, so be forewarned. You know she was losing it, because she didn’t even realize the “actors” were TERRIBLE AT THEIR JOBS and looked so unconvincing. But then, who would ever expect to be pranked like that? Some guy even skydived out of the plane! HAHA!
On an extremely loosely related note, the first time I ever flew on a plane (to LA), Paris was on my Virgin America flight! Fun times.
Here’s what Paris thought about it:
Scariest moment of my life. ?????? I really believed the plane was going to crash & we were all going to die. http://t.co/nWG1eQjl4P
I don’t know too much about Kate Hudson‘s upbringing, but I do know that her mom, Goldie Hawn, had a 30-year love affair with Kurt Russell and it’s Russell who pretty much raised Kate and her brother Oliver. The kids’ biological father, Bill Hudson, was divorced from Hawn by the time Kate was 18 months old, and he hasn’t really been in their lives since. Well, now he’s claiming that the decision not to be involved with his kids wasn’t his fault at all, and basically screw them, because he’s publicly disowning them after they dissed him on Father’s Day.
First, here are the Instagram posts that set him off:
And here’s Bill’s lengthy and insane statement to The Daily Mail(which… his choice of publication alone should be enough to show you where his head is at):
‘I say to them now, ‘“I set you free,” he pronounced, his voice breaking. ‘I had five birth children but I now consider myself a father of three. I no longer recognise Oliver and Kate as my own.
‘I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name. They are no longer a part of my life. Oliver’s Instagram post was a malicious, vicious, premeditated attack. He is dead to me now. As is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth.’
Ummm… WHAT? That’s so insane! He also went on to claim that Goldie poisoned the kids against him and that he’d been trying to be involved with Kate and Oliver’s lives for years but they rejected him. Which I guess makes perfect sense when you consider that he’s now “mourning their loss” because they’re dead to him? Someone needs to hit up some therapy.
Oh, come on. Known abstinence advocate Bristol Palin could not have sounded more miserable – not to mention the whole “I know everyone’s disappointed in me” malarky – when she announced this past week that she’s pregnant with her second child out of wedlock. It’s clear that she did not want this kid at all, but now that everyone’s pointed out the extreme irony of her being a judgmental asshole about everyone else’s sex life when she’s not practicing what she preaches, she’s suddenly backpeddling and claiming that actually, she totally planned to have this baby all along, dummies!
So here are the things you should all get straight before you continue to mock me, judge me, and talk about me.
None of us are perfect.
I made a mistake, but it’s not the mistake all these giddy a$$holes have loved to assume.
This pregnancy was actually planned.
Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn’t go as planned, but life keeps going. Life moves on.
But I do not regret this baby. This baby is not a disappointment, and I cannot wait to be a mom times two. Tripp is going to make the best big brother!!
When I realized I was pregnant, I knew I would be completely crucified. But I never even thought of aborting this child, NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE. (Sorry to the ghouls at Gawker, who said this baby is an argument FOR abortion. Not happening.)
I am pregnant. This is not the ideal situation, but life is important even if it’s not in the most absolute ideal circumstance. This is more confirmation on what I’ve always stood for. I’ve always been pro-life and I am standing for life now.
Deal with it.
What Bristol doesn’t realise is that a) no one’s buying her bullshit and that b) she can deny whatever she wants and make up whatever bullshit she wants, but the fact remains that it’s always the people who are the most vocal assholes who end up violating the very “rules” they purport we all should live by. I don’t know if Bristol originally became the poster child for abstinence-only sex education because she was forced into it by her mother so she could save face with the conservatives, but she needs to get a fucking grip and maybe pick up some pamphlets on birth control.
