Kim Kardashian Is No Hero

Yes, I am writing about a Kardashian and my least favorite one at that. But the flip side is that this isn't a puff piece that makes her look like an angel or anything. Anytime I get to expose this family for being the media manipulators that they are, I feel justified in writing about them. Anyways, there has been a lot written about Kanye West lately and by that I mean of course, that the stories have focused on how great Kim is and how she is selflessly standing by his side.

Hogwash is what I say! First, does the press talk about any other woman standing by her man, while he suffers a breakdown? If you can recall, please hit the comments and let me know. Rumors swirled around that "Keeping Up With Kardashians" production has been suspended while Kim took care of her husband. Lies! Even E!, the network that carries the program came and said (I'm paraphrasing here) "Bullshit, our moneymakers ar ein front of the camera doing what they do best!" And not for one second do I believe that Kris Jenner and Kim haven't tried to bring cameras into the hospital where 'Ye is staying. I fully expect a divorce announcement to be made as soon as he is out of the hospital, because that's how that family rolls.

So how do these stories keep leaking? If you have to ask, you haven't been paying attention to these people. They decide on the narrative, well Kris decides on the narrative and everyone else falls into line, and they send the stories out to the press. Here's what our friends over at Blind Gossip have to say: "And, yes, the narrative comes directly from her team." If that isn't narcassistic, then I don't know what is. Oh wait, releasing a boring sex tape and thinking that you're the bees kness. Yea, Kim did that too.

Speaking of things that have been done already, haven't we already seen this storyline? The answer is of course we have with Khloe and Lamar Odom. And if Kanye was smart, he'd be reading the tabloids on what happened there because history is bound to repeat itself. Even BG agrees with that assessment: "It would all be so admirable… if other family members hadn’t already used the exact same narrative!" Admirable isn't the word I would use, but then again I'm not Ace. 

Hopefully tomorrow there is something as good and juicy as the Jennifer Lopez story that I've been working on, the first part posted yesterday.

JLo's Big Music Secret Revealed Part 1

For years, I have been researching and arguing with people over the identity of CDAN's biggest Blind Item, MV. Many people thought that the obvious answer was Britney but they clearly didn't pay attention to the clues, the one that ruled her out being that her second CD Oops I did It Again did not outsell ....Baby One More Time. However, Jennifer Lopez's J.LO did move more copies than her debut, On the 6. Anyways on Friday, Enty Lawyer confirmed that JLo is indeed the infamous MV, so let's take a closer look at what this means and who will be affected once this scandal hits the mainstream press.

A little background about what the blind says and implies. So the post which goes back to nearly the start of Crazy Days and Nights, tells the tale of a musician who uses someone else's vocals and claims them as her own. The scheme is lucrative for all involved until the payments stop and the real singer, aka "S" in the blind, goes to see an Entertainment Lawyer and threatens to sue. She explains that a MAJOR producer came to her and asked her to record these songs and let the "star" take credit for it. In return, she would be rewarded with a ton of money.

So "S", who is not revealed in the blind. calls the producer who we can safely bet is the one and only Tommy Mottola, and asks about the missed payments. He tells her that she needs to record another CD for Jennifer Lopez, so that the payment could continue. She reluctantly agrees to this, and goes into the studio and records what will become JLO. It's a massive success and payments are rolling in all around.

Until once again, the payments stopped. This time, "S" enlisted Enty Lawyer (the aforementioned Entertainment Lawyer) and set up a meeting with J.Lo. It took him two phone calls, including one to Tommy Mottola to verify "S"'s story. Which was done within the first minutes of the chat, Tommy went through a whole slew of emotions within a short amount of time. He was hiding a secret of his own, which will be explored in another post. But suffice it to say it's very interesting and screams to be made into a movie.

It is assumed that the record company knows nothing about this scandal....yet. As this story blows up, and more information comes to light they will be forced to address it. As for why Enty decided now was the right time to reveal this blind, that is a question best left to him. One of the most popular theories is that The OG Enty has passed on and that makes it safe to reveal, while the other theory is that blogs are safeguarded from Libel because celebs believe that they shouldn't draw attention to them because that will just increase their pageviews.

There is much more to this story, and I have done a lot of research to bring you the most comprehensive and complete story that I can. Hit the comments with any questions you have and I will try to answer them in the coming posts.

Inside Kanye West's Meltdown

There's an easy joke that can be made about Kim Kardashian literally driving Kanye West crazy. That's beneath us all, and I expect more from my beloved Gossipers. We'll find other jokes to make and they will be great, they will be the greatest jokes ever told. Sorry slipped into my latest project, which is something that Kanye won't be doing for a while. Because he has suspended his "Pablo" tour because he's exhausted. Which is a nice way of saying that he's too rich to have to deal with common people.

This meltdown has been building since Kanye appeared on Ellen and went on an 8 minute rant about something or another. The result was that the beloved talk show hostess banned him from appearing on her show. How bad do things have to be that Ellen, Queen of the Comeback/Apology tour, doesn't ever want you to come on her show again? It's like being told that a warm loving grandma is going to be President and then ending up with an angry orange.

Earlier this week/late last week, Kanye was put under a 5150 hold. Now of course the Kardashian Klan doesn't want you to think that there's anything really wrong with Kanye, that is until it airs on the show. No they want you to think that he sought help himself. He didn't. OUr friends at Blind Gossip explain: "Unless our musician threatens to harm or actually physically harm himself or others, his family can’t legally force him into treatment for his mental illness, nor can they take control of his finances." And you just know that family wants control of his vast fortune. Let's be real about why Kim married Kanye. 

Maybe Kim and Kanye are really in love but that seems as likely as me doing dishes and cooking at home 2 days in a row. It's happened but so has the Seamless guy repeating my order to me verbatim without my asking. That is to say I do not believe they are in love with each other. They love attention and fame. BG backs up that claim with one perfectly worded paragraph: "We’re getting closer to the end now. He isn’t even showing up for work. Once the career goes, so does the income. And once the income goes, so does the need to stay attached to him." And boom goes the dynamite.  For those that think they married for love, I'm sorry but you clearly have not been paying attention the last few years. 

Trying to convince me that Kim and Kanye married for anything other than attention is the equivalent to Lindsay Lohan saying no to coke or Taylor Swift dating a straight man. These things just don't happen here in the real world. Though I do honestly hope that Kanye recovers and uses this experience to create more music!

Cristiano Ronaldo Allegedly Comes Out

Today we are back to normal. Lord knows that I could not take another political post, on top of writing a political book, and fighting with people on Facebook about politics. I mean seriously I am just one person and really not that into politics unless it's for a Jackie Collins-esque book. So when I read about Cristiano Ronaldo coming out, I was all on board for writing about that.

The whole thing started when Atletico Madrid's player Koke, hurled a homophobic slur at Ronaldo. A radio station allegedly overheard an exchange between Ronaldo and an unnamed teammate. The soccer superstar told the teammate that he challenged Koke to a meeting. When asked what he would do if they did come face to face, he admitted that there was nothing that he could do. And as sad as this is to admit, there is no story in that.

No, the story comes from what is said next. As the conversation progresses, the teammate keeps asking questions. Finally, Ronaldo replied with this: “Koke, he called me a faggot. I told him, ‘a faggot, yes. But a rich one, bitch." And boom goes the dynamite. Some are arguing that this wasn't his triumphant coming out moment, he just wanted to sting his enemy and rub in the fact that he is the highest paid athlete in the world.

Here's the thing, though. It's common knowledge around the world that he makes some $80 million a year. This comment was made to a colleague, someone who Ronaldo obviously trusts very much and wasn't expecting it to be repeated. And as of this writing, he hasn't denied it to my knowledge. So yes, I do believe that this is his coming out moment and I for stand proudly with the man. If he is in a relationship with a special someone, I hope that they stay happy.

What do you think?

The Hamilton Blowup

Yes, I know this is supposed to be a safe place, free of politics. But once in a while, a story is so dumb and so entrenched into the pop culture realm that a gossip site can't ignore it. Over the weekend, VP-elect Mike Pence went to see the hottest show on Broadway, Hamilton. The AUDIENCE booed him, and the cast offered some hopes for the incoming administration. The PROJECTED President-elect Donald Trump didn't like this and melted down on Twitter, because of course, he did.

 So after the Friday night's performance, Vice President-Elect Mike Pence was getting ready to leave. The audience booed him, and the cast led by Brandon Victor Dixon admonished the booers. Then Dixon asked Pence to hear what he had to say, which The VP-Elect did, and graciously I might add. Here are the words that were said: “We, sir — we — are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” he said. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.” Nothing offensive about that and actually was what Trump said on Election night during his victory speech. 

So what was the problem? Well, that's where there is a bit of confusion. Because Trump took to his Twitter and started crying about what happened. "Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen!" People should not say what they want to say? Funny coming from him, amiright? But he continues "The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!" This is where I stepped in and replied to him that he needed to apologize to people like Rosie O'Donnell, Hillary Clinton, and Megyn Kelly for comments made about them. Unsurprisingly, I have not heard anything back. 

What we did learn yesterday though was how Mike Pence reacted to this whole situation. When the audience booed him, he said to his daughter "This is what freedom looks like." I am not fan of the man but that was the perfect response. And his classiness continues. Not only did he stop and listen to what the cast had to say, he later said it didn't bother him at all. "I did hear what was said from the stage. I can tell you I wasn't offended by what was said. I will leave to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it," That's a debate that can be had all over, some supporters are calling for a boycott of the musical. Others are saying that the theater and especially Hamilton was the perfect place to talk about diversity in America to the VP-Elect. What I take away from this is that Pence is classier and more ready to run the Country than his boss is, and that scares the crap out of me.

How To Get Away With Killing A Main Character

Stop reading if you haven't watched the episode.... Spoilers ahead

After the horror show that was this election season, it's nice to sip a glass of wine and watch a nice little primetime soap. That  is unless of course, that show happens to be How To Get Away With Murder. Fans of that show, which I am, probably threw their wine glass at the TV and pulled out their hair. Last night's reveal of who was under the sheet has left fans reeling and with so many unanswered questions that you could fill a full encyclopedia with them. Both Pete Nowalk and Alfred Enoch talked about the shocking events.

In his first post-reveal interview Alfred says that Wes was put upon and he almost had to do a tragic death like this. To be fair, we don't exactly know how he died, because in the final moments Analise (the incredible Viola Davis) that Wes died BEFORE the fire. Back to Alfred though, he says that while he'll be around in flashbacks for the rest of the season, he believes that his character has died. Here's what he told TVLine: "I mean, I can never say anything definitively on our show because whenever I think I have a handle on what’s going on, I turn out to be wrong. But Wes looks pretty dead to me. And I felt pretty dead when I was lying on that autopsy table. [Laughs]" He left the door open for the eventual return or evil twin story but he seemed pretty sure that he was a goner to me. 

Pete Nowalk, however, seemed to slam that door shut and locked it. When asked if Wes was "dead-dead" by TVLine, he unequivocally said that he was. Pete then goes on to say that going into this season, they had no idea who was under the sheet and really didn't know until they had to start writing episode 7. And in his own words: "And that’s when I did. Ultimately, it was about a gut feeling, and [killing off Wes] gave me the biggest pain in my gut." As someone who writes, I always go with my gut and what the characters say but damn! I still think they should have known going in who was going to die.

But writing by the seat of their pants really seems to work for these writers. Though I do think that because they do that, we'll end up finding out that Wes is alive at some point. My suggestion is that they write it as the FBI and The DA's office worked together to fake his death. Then we learn at the end of the season, in the final scene of the finale, that he is alive and well. He's part of the Witness Protection Program, because as most of us know he had turned into an informant for the DA's office.

Fantastic New Few: Taylor Swift and Eddie Redmayne

After the atrocity of last week, this week keeps delivering up heaping plates of delicious gossip. Just in time for his new movie, "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them" to debut, Eddie Redmayne is talking about the world's favorite pop star, Taylor Swift. No, you aren't the only ones scratching your heads and wondering why. My theory is that Eddie is so normal and drama free that something had to be manufactured to talk about in interviews. And boy howdy is he talking. 

So for some reason there were rumors swirling around that Eddie might have auditioned to be a boyfriend du jour for Taylor. These rumors must have been bothering his wife or eating away at his conscience or something because he had Andy Cohen ask him about them on "Watch What Happens Live". His answer reeks of 'eww no, cooties' but I'll let you decide for yourself. “I absolutely can put the rumors to rest, I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift.” I can almost hear the revenge song that is definitely going to come out of this, I mean that's what she does isn't it?

But that's not all that he said. No, see just denying dating rumors will only get a headline or two and then disappear. Everyone that has an iota of fame has been connected to Taylor Swift at one point or another. Hell, even I was rumored to be dating her at  one point, even though she isn't my type and rumor has it that I'm not hers. So in order to keep the conversation going and maybe to get in another little dig. Eddie revealed that Taylor had auditioned to be in Les Miserables and didn't get the role. “She auditioned for Les Misérables and she was amazing in the audition. We got to sing together, which was a big moment for me,” This sounds an awful lot like taunting her, like 'Nah Nah I got to be in the Oscar-nominated film and all you got to do was cry into your millions of dollars.' So petty. He's been taking lessons in how to really rub salt in the wound. 

Eddie better be careful about how hard he rubs, though, Taylor is not a shrinking violet. No matter how many times she tries to portray herself that way, we all know that she is not one to be messed with. Our friends over at Blind Gossip have already heard that she is fuming and planning her next move already. She can't let her perfectly planned facade drop in public or have people believe that she might have failed at something. BG writes: "She hates it when you talk about gigs she didn’t score. If you try to point out anything that didn’t go well, she runs directly to the magazines and websites who will lie for her and claim that it never happened or is totally exaggerated or that whoever said it is a liar." There is no one else out there like Taylor and one day I will create a fictional character that is as evil and manipulative as she is. One day.

Janet Jackson Baby Bombshell

I'm slowly getting my bearings back. A sex tape scandal and a new reveal about a member of the first family of scandalous secrets certainly helps. Seriously, is there any family that has more secrets than the Jacksons? Every time I feel like I need to focus my fiction on DC or something, they remind me why Hollywood has always fascinated me. So much money, power, and glamour. And the secrets are something out of a daytime soap opera. Take Janet Jackson, she keeps insisting that she's "pregnant" with her first child but a wild revelation from her former husband James Debarge has set the record straight.

So how did all of this come out? My worst enemy, no not Florine Marks but I'm sure she's plotting against me somewhere, no this time it came from reality TV. There's a show called Growing Up Hip Hop, and one of the stars is Krissy Debarge. She confronted her father about all of those pesky rumors that she wasn't the sole heir to a fortune. In an emotional scene, that was totally not put on for the cameras, he admitted that he told the truth. “I’m tired of the secrecy. I’m tired of the truth not coming forth and of people being a coward when it comes to it. And I thought it was wise for me to speak out now because it needs to be addressed. To be honest with you, I didn’t know. I was under the impression that there was no baby. I wanted to believe it’s not true. But it is.” Now just because I make fun of his histrionics doesn't mean I think he's lying. 

So what do know about this child? She was born sometime after James and Janet had their marriage annulled, which places her at around 30 years old. There is also a rumor swirling around that she is the one carrying Janet's baby for her. Like I said, the Jackson's are a twisted family with lots of secrets that can be explored and written about for years and years to come. 

Are you looking for proof that Janet isn't really preggers? Our friends over at Blind Gossip have pictures that are very convincing that something isn't quite right. 

Here is the confession scene.... And can someone tell me what this show is, please?

Von Miller Sex Tape Blackmail Scandal

One of these days, I will fully transform myself into this generation's Jackie Collins. It's my calling and I know it but the election still has me all sorts of confused and upset. However, stories like this one really gets my juices flowing and putting together characters and plot points that will resonate with the audience. Von Miller, a football player, says that he is being blackmailed by a former lover. A lover who recorded their tryst and plans to release the tape if the NFL star doesn't pay up.

So Von and this girl hooked up. She recorded them doing it, and his only insistence was that she keep it to herself. Well after he finished his business and probably talked to an advisor, who screamed at him (in my head) to tell the girl to get rid of that tape. Like any good lover, he text her and demanded that she trash the tape. her reply was 'gotcha'. Guys, both straight and gay a little advice from someone who's been there, anyone who is willing to record sex with you is not going to go quietly into that silent night. Have we learned nothing from Colin Farrel's sex tape? Other than that man has a third leg?

Now this woman wants money or the tape will be released. In fact, this lady is going for the gold standard and wants 2.5 million. My question is how exactly do you decide on a number for this? Like is there a blackmailer's guide or something that I'm not privy to? I'm guessing that's what it is because that's the only way I can imagine someone being able  to come up with a number this outrageous. If I were Von. I'd be like release it, I'll be one of the few celebs they can't claim is on the down-low girl. That's just me, though.

What does all this mean? Nothing. Here's the thing that these celebrities tend to forget, even if the tape is leaked no porn company will touch or release it without permission. Both parties would have to sign off on it and agree to compensation. Even theoretically if this woman sells it to a gossip blog or a tabloid, they really can't do much with it besides talk about it like I am now. Again all he would have to do is instruct his legal team to have it taken down.

Performer Of The Week: Kate McKinnon

It's been 6 days since my last post, my intention was to get back to a normal writing schedule for the site. Then Tuesday's election happened and I went into a deep shock Even my fiction was neglected in favor of WTF just happened posts on Facebook and Twitter. The same thing must have happened over on Saturday Night Live, because their cold open was not what one would expect from them after a Presidential Election. But that is exactly why Kate McKinnon, the show's MVP several times over already, is being lauded as Performer of The Week.

When the show opened, Kate sat at a piano as her Hillary Clinton persona. When she began singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" I expected Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump to appear and make fun of her but it didn't happen. Instead she sang the whole song, allowing the emotions to bubble up and stir feelings in the audience and made it OK to be sad/scared/mad. While her voice isn't the most technically perfect, it was perfect for what we needed.

As most people know, Kate isn't one to rest on her laurels. During Weekend Update, she came ut as Ruth Bader Ginsburg. What could have been a one-joke segment turned into one of the most talked about segments on Sunday. Kate used her whole body to demonstrate not only how Ginsburg intended to stay alive but also flesh out how Tuesday's results go further than just who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Her scene partner, Colin Jost had a hard time keeping a straight face during the segment, which is a tribute to how funny Kate really is.

Finally, as if those two weren't enough, Kate appeared alongside Host of the evening Dave Chappelle for what was the funniest sketch of the night. The premise was as simple as Kim Kardashian, two people in the bar at closing, not wanting to go home. With any other performer Kate' s drunken mess of a character would have felt as out of place as a gay, Muslim, black woman at one of President Elect Trump's dinners. However our girl brought her A game and sold not only the character but that she and Dave Chapelle could actually be a couple, their chemistry was off the charts.

Kate went from serious to playing up the comedy in a blink of the eye. She once again proved to the world that she is jack of trades and is one of the best performers SNL has had since Tina Fey ruled the roost.

Election Feud: Roseanne vs Jason Dottley

Does anyone else have election fatigue? Like I am seriously ready for this ish to be over with, so we can get back to debating important things like whose hotter Channing Tatum or Ryan Gosling and What's the best Britney song to date. During this seemingly endless election cycle, we have seen quite a few WTF feuds: Susan Sarandon vs Debra Messing, Mark Cuban vs Donald Trump, and Donald Trump vs Reality. There's one that started rumbling yesterday that takes this to a whole new level: Roseanne Barr vs Jason Dottley. 

As with all of the aforementioned feuds, minus Trump vs Reality, it started with a difference of opinion. Roseanne is a Trump supporter and reviewing her twitter, really dislikes Hillary. Nothing wrong with that. Jason is the reverse, he supports Hillary and despises Trump. Nothing out of the ordinary there. Hell this kind of disparity and disagreement happened within my own family, so it seems to be a condition of being an American during this period. 

There would be no story if it stayed there, though. Somehow this whole thing exploded into a messy,nasty twitter war between not only the infamous Roseanne and Jason but between their own supporters as well. It turns out that Roseanne's favorite insult is calling people a toad for some reason. And Jason said that he lost all respect for someone he once admired. 

That;'s when the supporters jumped in and this began a convoluted story like AHS: Roanoke. Seriously who was that guy at the end of last week's episode? I mean why in the world are two world class talents fighting and blocking one another on Twitter? We need Adele to work her magic and bring us all together again. That's the only way that this thing will be resolved.  

Remember no matter who you support: Get out and vote today!

Crazy Soap Lady Talks Halloween

You may have noticed that Mandy hasn't been posting as much here lately. I promise you it's not because of me, I have no idea where she disappeared to. Maybe she felt threatened because I was eclipsing her popularity or something.

Believe it or not I have a story about something just like this. Back in the 1600's or so when I was just a young lass, I had a very good friend. In order to protect her privacy we'll call her Tabby, like a cat. A stinky, nasty cat. Anywhoselbees Clarissa, I mean Tabby had been flirting with my boyfriend. Normally I would have just let it go but I had just gone to second base with him, I mean we were really serious. I had let him hold my hand.

When word got back to me that, that harlot Melissa had been throwing himself at my man, I knew I had to do something. So I did what any red blooded women would do in this situation, I capitalized onpeoples fears of the unknown and told the towns people that Diana was a witch.

As I went to sleep that night, I noticed that the sun was already rising. The ominous orange glow in the distance upset me a little, I hadn't even got 5 minutes of beauty sleep. I got out of bed and asked mommy what was going on, she had no idea but she was worried because daddy had been at the local tavern having a lager.

I ran outside and seen my beloved. 'What's happening?' I asked. He told me that word had gotten out that Margarita was a witch and they were going to put her on trial, but the leaders of the town had no idea how ot tell if she was a witch or not. See now I don't know why I wasn't running the town because the answer came to me easily, tie a rock around her ankle, if she drowned she was a good christian woman, but surely a witch such as herself would be able to untie the rock and fly to safety.

The townspeople listened to my idea and tied a rock around the traitorous ones ankle and pushed her into the angry river beneath the cliff. Well you won't believe this but Melissa didn't fly up or anything, She wasn't a witch after all, oopsie I guess we all make mistakes right?

And some good did come of it. Now around this time history teachers have something interesting to teach students. And of course I take credit for the little witches and goblins that you will see coming to your house tonight asking for candy and the such. As for Nina, well I made my peace with her and expect that when I pass to the next world she will be there to welcome me.

Breaking: Raven Symone Exiting The View, Staying In Disney Family

The View curse continues. No all of the ladies visits from Aunt Flo haven't synced, that I am aware of. This curse seems to be that only one co-host with any kind of tenure can be on the show, the others fall off and disappear into an abyss. Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg seemed to be trying to break that but Whoopi told Wendy Williams that she was leaving at the end of this season. Now comes word that Raven Symone won't be on the show much longer, if ever again.

First things first. The show started with Raven's big announcement. The beloved child star started her statement by offering fans some good news. She has been working with The Disney Channel on a sequel series to "That's So Raven"! Yes let that sink in for a minute, in this day and age of sequels and reboots, we are getting another reboot of a beloved series. I'm willing to give this a shot since Raven is at the helm and she is a brilliant business woman. There is no way that she would do anything to damage the brand that she has built up over the years.

Raven continued on to say that she is going to be the Executive Producer and star in this new series, which is why she has only appeared on Fridays. I honestly had thought that it was in her contract that she only had to show up one day a week, and let the other co-hosts do heavy lifting the other four days. But no she implied that she was supposed to be appearing more often but was so busy with this project and simply didn't have time to do everything.

Which leads us to news of Raven's exit. This was left a little murky, as there is no clear end date for her as of yet. In fact the co-hosts led by Whoopi kept saying the end of the year, which can be seen as being 2016 or the end of the season which would be in May of 2017. Raven took the cameras behind the scenes and talked about the camera guys but was suspiciously quiet about her on air colleagues and who she would miss. I am positive that there is something to this story and promise to do my due diligence to find out what is going on with this.

The Truth Behind Diane Sawyer's Big Caitlyn Jenner Interviews!

Some of you may be worried that the reason for my posting infrequently is because I lost my gossip license due to refusing to run a Kardashian story every hour. While I am sure they are after me, that family is not the reason, it's not easy being an in demand writer. But back to the royal family of trash and drugs, new matriarch Caitlyn Jenner is releasing her memoir next year and will be doing another interview with Diane Sawyer, even though Oprah was sure she had this one in the bag. Oh yes, this is the trifecta of gossip stories: Secrets and lies, LGBT person, and of course Oprah!!!

During Caitlyn's coming out period, everyone including the big O thought that the former Bruce Jenner would go to the former daytime doyenne turned network honcho to talk. Oprah is quite possibly the biggest name in interviewers out there right now and her name attached guarantees millions of butts in the seats. Plus O is very sensitive to the LGBTQIA community. So why go with Diane Sawyer? If you buy the reasoning that Caitlyn and Diane bonded over "The Birdcage" then do I have a river to sell you in Nevada.

It was all an image thing. I can hear you all gasping, it's true a member of the Kardashian clan was worried about how the public would perceive them. Now I am sure that after that shocker you want me to go light on you but no that's not how this story works. See Caitlyn caught rumblings that Oprah might be a fan of fish tacos (yes I am going with the euphemism) and she wanted no part of being associated with a lying liar. No matter that there is no proof that O is a lesbian, and that rumors of her sexuality may just be nonsense. No, to Caitlyn the very thought of someone not being true to themselves was enough to send her running back to Diane's open arms.

So Diane and Caitlyn will play besties, saying that Diane's late husband helped them bond with his classic movie. That's just because Caitlyn doesn't want to shut the door on The Big O altogether. Here's what our friends over at Blind Gossip had to say: "Of course, Caitlin Jenner will not throw Winfrey under the bus. She will simply say that she feels closer to Sawyer and that’s why she selected her for the interview." Basically what I told you so there's no need to beat a dead horse. 

Also look for the devil to appear in this gabfest, it's the price you pay for reality fame. More from our friends at BG, "By the way, you should watch for Kris Jenner to get several minutes of airtime during the Caitlyn interview. Supposedly that’s the price Caitlyn had to pay Kris for allowing Caitlyn to come back to Keeping Up With The Kardashians." Now you didn't think that Kris asked Caitlyn to return to the show for nothing did you? Come on, you know this family better than that!

Gaga Impresses, Bores on Joanne.

For a long time I was not a fan of Lady Gaga. In the very beginning, I thought she would be a one hit wonder and then fade away into the night. Of course this was not the case and we are all the more better for it. Just for the record my opinion of Gaga changed when I saw her in concert and realized that this woman is uber-talented. A fact that is driven home on her new CD, Joanne.

For those that were expecting music along the lines of The Fame, The Fame Monster, or ArtPop will be sorely disappointed. There are no dance songs or any tunes that are overtly pop on this record. The closest one will get to that is the lead single "Perfect Illusion", which fizzled on the charts faster than William Hung trying to sing "I Will Always Love You." That's not to say the song is bad, on the contrary I rather enjoy it. But the truth is that it's no "Applause" or "Poker Face", which is exactly what Gaga is going for with this collection. She said she wanted to get back to her roots, which was performing in dive bars.

Some people have suggested that she should have classified this CD as a country CD. There is certainly some argument for that. "One Million Reasons" would hold up very well as a country single but overall Joanne has more of a rock/indie feel to it. Now we all know that there is no way that Lady Gaga would ever have to go the indie route, but that's the feel of the CD and it's most welcomed. The chanteuse gives her vocals an exercise on almost every song, from the growl of "One Million Reasons" to the ethereal sound of "Angel Down".

But for most of Joanne, most fans will be wondering why. Why this CD? Why now? Why no song like "Do What U Want"? Those are things that no reviewer can answer, but I can offer this: As an artist maybe these are just things that she felt the need to say. Like Britney before her, Gaga is trying new things, which is exciting. This sound just didn't do much for me or a lot of people it seems.

Best Song: Sinners Prayer, One Million Reasons

Don't Let Britney be The Last To Know Tom Hiddleston!

Yes the headline is a direct reference to a classic Britney song and no I am not sorry. She is a Goddess and deserves all of the praise that we heap upon her. And by we, I of course mean the Britney Army and I. Included in that would be any gentleman who thinks that he can win the heart of America's Sexiest Sweetheart. Or whom the iconic Britney may deem worthy of her attention and affections.

Multiple sources are saying that the man who Brit may be crushing on now is Tom Hiddleston aka former father figure to Taylor Swift's cats. After that break up, I thought that Tom would be done with famous women because he was so sick of the paparazzi and all of the attention that went along with dating someone so much more famous than he was. Yes I know he was the "internet's boyfriend" and he plays Loki in the Marvel movies, but he did not appear regularly in the tabloids or the gossip blogs until he hitched his wagon to Taylor.

All of this brings us to Brit and Tom having a mutual lust for one another. Now lust does not always translate to love, just ask anything that's not vodka in my life. But Brit had her people reach out to Tom's people to see if maybe he would be interested in going out on a date with her. Stop me if you've heard this timeless love story before. Rich people mate so much differently than us poor people. I use Grindr to find someone but Brit and Tom actually have people to do this stuff for them, I am so jealous. I really need to find someone to swipe right for me.

Enough about me being single. The sources say that Tom is very interested in getting to know Britney and likes that she is near his age. He also thinks that things will be quieter with her on the media front because she doesn't seek out attention the way Taylor does. I think what he means to say is that she's BRITNEY FREAKING SPEARS and of course he wants to date her because there is no one else on Earth like her.

And because today is Music Monday, here is the song that inspired the headline:

Are You Ready For Round 2 of Gaga vs Madonna?

Lady Gaga's newest CD drops today, so she is busy doing press. Now that I think about it, it's weird that the chanteuse turned actress hasn't done any press for American Horror Story. Maybe she has learned her lesson about overexposure. One lesson she didn't learn was not to mess with the Queen of Pop.

While being interviewed by Zane Lowe of Beats Radio One, Gaga tried to distance herself from Madonna when Lowe compared the two. “Madonna and I are very different. Just saying. We're very different. I wouldn't make that comparison at all and I don't mean to disrespect Madonna, she's a nice lady, and she's had a fantastic huge career, biggest pop star of all time,” That's fair enough. The ladies are very different, in fact I think Britney has more in common with Madonna than Gaga does. If only it had been left at that, nothing would have been made of that.

However in this day and age of people wanting to go viral and wanting to maximize the amount of press they get, that was not the end of it. Proving that I am not the only one who gets diarrhea of the mouth, Gaga went on to say more. “I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music, I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I'm a producer. I'm a writer. What I do is different. There is spontaneity to my work, I allow myself to fail. I allow myself to break. I'm not afraid of my flaws.” First, nobody ever should imply that Madonna is anything less than perfect. Doing otherwise is a Felony and punishable by death (aka being forced to listen to Justin Bieber talk about Justin Bieber). Also unless I am mistaken, I believe Madge also produces her music, she owned her own label for a very long time. 

Madonna has yet to respond to this but seeing as it just happened, give it time. Gaga for her part seemed to realize what she did and tried to walk back on it. She claimed that she didn't want to be compared to anyone else and that she was doing her own thing. Both are lovely things and perhaps true. But she needs to be careful about what she says, Bieber is dying to talk about himself....

Here Are The Kerry Washington Conspiracy Theories

This fall has been Hell on me, what with Scandal being sidelined because of Kerry Washington's second pregnancy. I'm planning on launching a season-esque tale of my own on Facebook and WattPad but my former laptop decided to die, so I have to start all over. Anyways she had her baby on October 5 and revealed the birth of her baby to E! news, which is weird because I would think Disney/ABC would have had dibs on that announcement. Moving on, along with the news came the theorists that something isn't right....

Shows like The X-Files and even to an extent Castle rely very heavily on the chemistry between the lead characters. Scandal is one of those shows as well, and fans of OFitz (Olivia and Fitz) have decided that Kerry Washington must be sleeping with co-star Tony Goldwyn. My guess would have been Scott Foley but hey what do I know? And the reason that there are no pictures of the babies? Obviously because the father of the babies is Tony and not Kerry's husband.

What proof is there? Well fans really think so and the fact that Kerry won't share her little bundles of joys with us. Never mind the fact that she is a private person and didn't even make a spectacle of her wedding day or ever talks about anything personal really. No, she obviously is having an affair with her co-star because that is the narrative that people can get behind. For the love of Britney, I wish it were true because it would make becoming the next Jackie Collins all that much easier.

Instead of wondering whether or not Kerry and Tony are having an affair, let's celebrate the good news. In a world full of hate being spewed from every angle, let's take the news of a baby being born and raise it up. Congrats Kerry and thank you for making Thursday nights so fun!

Justin Bieber's Gay Porn Problem

I now have a working laptop and am back at work to bring you the best and most salacious gossip around town. Or hot guys, sometimes I'll bring you hot guys. Today we are talking about the over grown toddler, Justin Bieber and how he thinks that gay porn star Johnny Rapid is ruining his reputation. 

For those of you that prefer to forget, a couple of years ago Johnny Rapid offered Justin Bieber $2 million to star in a gay porn with him. Nothing ever came of that offer, much to the delight of gay porn watchers everywhere. Some gay men and straight women are relieved but I have a feeling some straight guys want to see Bieber get it on with another dude. Lesbians are the lucky ones who don't have to worry about the Biebs showing up in any of their videos. How I envy them.

Since the silent rejection Johnny has apparently turned himself into the adult star version of Bieber and Justin doesn't like it. In fact, he is mulling over legal action because he doesn't think his fan base can tell the difference between him and a porn star. Rob Schuter of the National Enquirer says: “This is a violation of his brand, and he will be looking into the matter before starting legal proceedings.” A little lesson for Bieber and Donald Trump: parody falls under the Fair Use clause of the Copyright laws. You may not like what you see but unless you are screwing guys on camera for money there is little to nothing you can do about it. Maybe ask Johnny to stop and listen to him laugh at you for a little while but not much more than that. 

What I am curious about is how it's "damaging his brand"? Bieber has shown his penis more times than Kim Kardashian has taken off her clothes. Yes, that's right I have now referenced Trump, Kardashian, and Bieber in the same post and it's about gay porn. This should win me some sort of award or something. Anyways, every time Biebs has too many scandals or people are talking bad about him out comes BJ (Bieber Junior) and people start talking about his naked body again. He may as well just do the damn porn and get it over with.

Royal Rant: My Coming Out Story

It must seem to the people in my day to day life, that I have been out since the day I was born. In fact perfect strangers who meet me today don't even ask if I'm gay, they tell me. So it might seem odd to people when I reveal that I was not always this open about my sexuality. In fact there was a time when I tried to deny who I am, and what I liked. And for the smartasses no it wasn't just before preschool.

Pull up a chair and let me tell you a story, a story about a time called the 90's, when I was a kid, well teen. I was in 7th grade, and in the locker room when all the  boys would change I realized that I didn't mind them being naked around me. Ok I really enjoyed it, especially what I now call my crush du jour. We'll call him H because I haven't seen him since that last day in 7th grade. H was a friend of mine, we hung out together but nothing really more than that. Of course for 12/13 year old boys thats all there needs to be, most don't understand having an emotional connection. Anyways I went home confused about why I was feeling so attracted to a boy. Wasn't wrong? The church I went to said it was. and they wouldn't lie.

I spent many a sleepless nights trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Slowly I started realizing that ever since I was a little, little kid my celebrity crushes were the boys not the girls. I mean sure my walls were littered with Madonna and Paula Abdul posters, and while I thought they were pretty (especially Madonna) I never had an inkling that I wanted to marry them. As I mentioned in a past column I did talk to an older gay man and he assuaged my fears but the church still had a big hold on me. Finally I decided that I couldn't possibly be a boy who likes boys, maybe I liked both. Satisfied I stopped stressing myself out.

That summer my mom married my stepdad and we moved away from my hometown. Not far or anything, just across the county. As we settled into the new house, I realized I could still dream about kissing Brian Austin Green and not let anyone know about my "problem". In the fall I started a new school, a whole new school district. I had met some people but wasn't really friends with anyone yet. I figured this would be a brand new start for me, I thought well maybe I'll just throw myself into my school work, no one expects me to make friends right off the bat.

That didn't quite work out the way I wanted. See I have always loved drama so i signed up for that as an extracurricular and I also signed up for journalism. I figured if I couldn't be an actor I could be the next Murphy Brown. Both of those classes had a boy in it that all the girls fawned over, I don't remember his name but I remember he was cute. Damn I thought, there goes my chance at normalcy.

The rest of 8th grade went by in a blur, me and mr Cutie started talking between classes and what not but nothing real serious. By the end of 8th grade I had no real close friends but definitely some people I wanted to keep talking to. And I thought that the liking the boys had gone away, I had gone almost the entire summer not thinking about boys.

That all changed once I hit high school. My first crush in high school was a boy named Bill, he was a senior. He swore and I thought he was so grown up. I doubt he ever knew that I liked him, and if he did he never said anything about it. I finally accepted to myself what I was and realized I could not change it. I swore though that I would never share it with anyone else. The consequences would be almost unbearable, I wouldn't have any friends and would be ostracized.

At the end of freshmen year a group was started that would ultimately change my life. Creative Writing Club had been formed! When I got to the meeting there was swimming boy, he was gorgeous. After one meeting we had a talk and he told me that he liked boys and girls. My dream come true, it was possible to like both and be 'normal'. After freshmen year, I never seen swimmer boy again but I started thinking seriously about coming out.

I didn't. For various reasons I kept myself in the closet, I was unhappy but I had friends and my family was going through some drama with my sister. My thought process was well theres so much going on I don't need to add to the stress that my parents are under. I did keep researching and trying to figure myself out, because I started realizing that I didn't like both boys and girls I only liked boys.

One guy, I was told liked me. When asked if I liked him too I told my friend Stephanie that I was "as gay as he was." Not very smart for someone trying to stay in the closet. Even less smart was telling friends that I had cuddled with another guy. After that debacle I was put under "homo-suspicion" and I badly wanted to confess but we had all started going to a new church and I was afraid of losing the friendships I had come to cherish.

Finally my oldest friend made me confess. We worked together, and had known one another since grade school, her family had moved to the city where mine had moved years before we did. So we were at work the Friday after Thanksgiving, 1999 a day I will never forget. I was mopping the floor and she was doing some dishes. Suddenly she stopped and looked at me and asked "Are you gay?" Of course I tried to deny it but she seen right through me. "Tell me the truth, are you gay?" she insisted. Finally reluctantly I said the words that I had previously sworn I would never say. "Yes I am gay."

That night on the way home we chatted about everything. Guys we liked, why I had hid the secret for so long. Just everything, and even better as one by one I confided in my friends instead of running from me they all embraced me and protected me. Which was totally unnecessary because in my high school every one let me know that if someone messed with me, I was to let them know and they would take care of the problem.

Why share my coming out story? Because most of the coming out stories that are shared either through memoirs or in literature are negative. In fact it seems like if you come out, you'll be beat up, thrown out of the house or worse. I want to spread some positivity and encourage people to come out!!!

Amber Tamblyn Shares Secret Pain In Wake Of Trump Scandal

My laptop broke, which is why I've been absent these past few weeks. I'm pretty sure it's because I contemplated writing something nice about Kim Kardashian and it lost it's mind. For my first post back though, I was hoping for some juicy gossip story but no. This one is even more important to share because of it's timeliness and frankly Amber Tamblyn was very courageous to share her story.

So for those of you who don't know, on Friday there were some leaked tapes of Donald Trump and Billy Bush engaging in "locker room talk". Which really amounts to The Presidential nominee saying that he could grab women by their genitals because he was a star. The controversy hit fast and hard, with many prominent Republicans calling for him to resign from the race. He won't of course. And slowly on Sunday many of those that were against him finally bought into the locker room talk and blamed Hillary Clinton somehow.

Enter GH's former (and best) Emily Quartermaine. Amber Tamblyn explained why the quote from the would be President upset her so much. In a lengthy Facebook post, she reveals that one of her ex-boyfriends sexually assaulted her. Her words are as powerful as they are scary. The picture that is painted is the very defnition of rape culture and it struck me that even stars are not safe from these situations. Here are here words, unedited:

I need to tell you a story. With the love and support of my husband, I've decided to share it publicly.
A very long time ago I ended a long emotionally and physically abusive relationship with a man I had been with for some time. One night I was at a show with a couple girlfriends in Hollywood, listening to a DJ we all loved. I knew there was a chance my ex could show up, but I felt protected with my girls around me. Without going into all the of the details, I will tell you that my ex did show up, and came up to me in the crowd. He's a big guy, taller than me. The minute he saw me, he picked me up with one hand by my hair and with his other hand, he grabbed me under my skirt by my vagina— my pussy?— and lifted me up off the floor, literally, and carried me, like something he owned, like a piece of trash, out of the club. His fingers were practically inside of me, his other hand wrapped tightly around my hair. I screamed and kicked and cried. He carried me this way, suspended by his hands, all the way across the room, pushing past people until he got to the front door. My friends ran after him, trying to stop him. We got to the front door and I thank God his brothers were also there and intervened. In the scuffle he grabbed at my clothes, trying to hold onto me, screaming at me, and inadvertently ripped off my grandmother’s necklace, which I was wearing. The rest of this night is a blur I do not remember. How I got out to the car. How I got away from him that night. I never returned for my necklace either.
That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States Donald Trump recently described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend's violence for at least the next week. I had a hard time wearing jeans. I couldn’t sleep without a pillow between my legs to create space.
To this day I remember that moment. I remember the shame. I am afraid my mom will read this post. I'm even more afraid that my father could ever know this story. That it would break his heart. I couldn't take that. But you understand, don't you? I needed to tell a story. Enjoy the debates tonight.
No matter who you support in the race for the White House, please take a second and have a serious talk about how people should be treated. It's no secret that I don't think that Mr. Trump is suitable to be the Commander in Chief. However these comments no matter when they were said, the fact is they were said. This needs to be a National conversation among every citizen.

Amber posted her story with the picture above. Any negative or nasty comments will be deleted.

Whoopi Goldberg Leaving The View, Will She Be Replaced?

Two weeks into the new season and there is already backstage drama over at The View. Some of you may be rolling your eyes at me and thinking that of course that me saying there's drama behind the scenes is like Fox renewing The Simpsons, it's just a given. This time though, Whoopi Goldberg herself caused it and is generating quite a few headlines! Why? Because she said her intention is to leave the show at the end of this season.

Whoopi has been doing the talk show circuit promoting her new show, Strut. It's about the first Transgender Modeling Agency. When she appeared on Wendy Williams' show, Whoopi revealed that she "has" to leave, “I have to do it, baby, because I have to go and grow, I got stuff to do. I got movies I need to direct. I got books I got to finish.” Sometimes I think people forget that Whoopi is an EGOT, and she probably has projects lined up from Manhattan to LA. It really makes sense that she may want to leave a full time job to tackle these passion projects. 

For her part, Whoopi isn't worried about leaving The View. In fact, she basically told Wendy that she is only a part in the machine. “This was great and I love doing it, but it’s been awhile and they’re in their 20th season. They did this without me.” In case anyone is interested, Whoopi is the longest running Moderator that the show has had. And again, as a creative person I understand her need to get out there and do something different. 

Fans of the show may be asking who will replace Whoopi? That remains to be seen, but the most obvious choice would be to promote Joy Behar. On Friday's she is already holding court, and she is among the most popular co-hosts. There could be a civil war on Producers hands if they go outside of the current cast. That is if the shows does indeed go on. 

Yes there was a show before Whoopi, and it has undergone many cast changes over the years. However with sagging ratings and a seeming new push into scripted shows by the networks again, this could be the final straw for the venerable show. Rumors have been rampant that the new ABC Daytime President wants to put her mark on the show and sacking The View could be the way she does it. 

And because it's Music Monday, here is Mary J Blige's video for The Views theme song.

The Soap Opera That Is The Brangelina Breakup

My word, when I predicted that the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie split would be the biggest story on the gossip blogs, I had no idea how right I would be. Seriously Page Six should just change their name to Brangelina Central because almost every article has been about them for the last 24 hours. And yes I realize the same could be said for here but at least I'm condensing the juice into one or two posts per day. This one will be all about how Brad and Angie had a lot of trust issues between them, mostly because rumor has it someone has a wandering peen. Enough about Angie though.

As with yesterday we look back to an awards night to see that there were problems with Brangelina, and we missed the clues. Our friends over at Blind Gossip solved an item yesterday that was so glaringly obvious that I should be smacked for not getting it right. Brad and Angie skipped the Oscar ceremony but went to the parties. There they stayed on opposite sides of the room, and refused to be photographed together. What does this have to do with trust issues, you may be asking? Well give me a second to segue into it.

Yes that's a clumsy segue but so is Angelina getting caught hiring an investigator. Come on if you're one of the riches and most powerful people in the world, there is no reason why you're getting caught doing something like that. But she was and a source said that she had a feeling that Brad was passing his joystick to a player that wasn't her. He was passing it to his "Allied" costar, Marion Cotillard.  A source told Page Six“She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw,’’ Truth be told if I had a bf and he was messing around on me, I'd be done to. However there is the tiniest bit of karmic revenge here because of how Brad and Angelina got started. 

Of course the biggest difference is that there were no kids when Brad and Angelina decided to play Mr. and Mrs. Smith off set. This time though, Blind Gossip says that there might be one in someone's tummy. Yep one of Brad's mistresses might be with child!!! Now to be fair, I have been researching and can't confirm that Marion is preggers but BG never said it was her, just The OTHER Woman. Here's what they say: "The Other Woman is pregnant. The Actor might be the father." And this just entered into soap territory. A divorce, an affair, and a whose the daddy story? General Hospital should take note, this is how soap is done. 

And another wrinkle has just been added to the story. Angie may not be the saint that she was hoping to be portrayed as. New rumors are flying about her that she may have been dating a politician before she filed for divorce from Brad. The rumor from Naughty Gossip adds that she is bored by Hollywood people, which would include her soon to be ex, and is intrigued by people in politics. "She has been getting more and more interested in politics for years and finds Hollywood dull and boring. She is more focused on helping children around the world. Through her adventures she has met some very powerful politicians. One of them she fell in love with. That is the real reason why she filed for divorce." Boy howdy, this is going to be a messy divorce and this is only day 2. Who knows what lies ahead.

The Brangelina Split Is About To Be Gossip Heaven

As promised in the earlier post, I am following up on the Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt divorce. This news reminds me of the Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise break up a few years ago. It seemingly came out of nowhere and is now all anyone wants to talk about, including me. So I put nose to the computer screen and started searching for answers, and what I've come up with is some juicy stuff for us to sink our teeth into. And let's just be real here, this divorce will be driving gossip sites for the next 6 months at the very least. Brad and Angie know how to create drama unlike Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

First things first, it seems that the break up can be traced all the way back to January and the Golden Globes. Apparently Brad kept changing the excuse as to why she wasn't there, he told one group that she was sick and another that she was busy filming. This might not seem like a big deal but as Blind Gossip pointed out, actors are supposed to memorize lines and sell the story. Brad clearly failed at that and they speculate that he must have been "flustered" that she wasn't by his side.

Now on to the good stuff. Well good if you aren't Angelina or Brad that is. Her lawyer released a statement today saying that she filed for divorce for the "health of the family." Many people are speculating that Brad must have gotten into something bad or slept with someone he shouldn't have and is now paying for it with one of the biggest divorces in recent history. And make no mistake in terms of money and press, this will be a biggie.

But Angelina shouldn't expect to play the victim. In fact, there are reports that if she does then Brad will be forced to show his hand. His ace up his sleeve apparently includes her drug use and alleged overdoses, as well as a presumably untreated eating disorder. Blind Gossip has a delicious quote from a different item than the one linked to above: "She is crazy for attacking him, because if he attacks back, he could go after her on her [drug] addiction and her [eating disorder]. He seriously thought that she was going to die a couple of times. How would she feel if he made that public? The only thing that’s holding him back right now is he is worried about how it would affect the kids." At least someone is thinking about the children! But I fully expect this war to be played out in the press by the two best pros in the business. 

And somewhere Jennifer Aniston is hugging her hubby tightly, preparing herself for the onslaught of reunion covers that she'll grace with Brad.
