Report: Darren Wilson Will Not Be Indicted In Mike Brown Case

For months now there has been a war raging in Ferguson, Missouri because of a white police officer shooting an unarmed black teenager. Yet the saga of Officer Darren Wilson and Mike Brown has transcended the surface and become something so much more. It has become about race, about Republican and Democrat, and even a generational issue. The news that Darren Wilson will not be charged in the murder of Mike Brown will only make this divide even worse.

Activist group Anonymous revealed that they have inside sources in the Grand Jury and what they found is sure to bring even more of a divide between everyone.  Allegedly there will be no consequences for Officer Wilson in this case, "On or about November 10, 2014 the Grand Jury decision will be announced. Darren Wilson will NOT be indicted on ANY charges related to the murder of Mike Brown. All local police Chiefs and jail commanders have been notified to begin preparing for major civil unrest.” The last part of the sentence makes me very uneasy. There's already a lot of violence in the small city. 

As always the decision of the Grand Jury raises more questions than it answers. It also leads one to wonder what was behind the decision. Many people are going to claim that this is about race, and there is a slight chance that it was.

Real Housewives Fake Relationship

So the drama today has been pretty tepid, even I'm bored and I have to write this stuff. Things changed though with the reveal that Bobby Ciasulli, of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame, isn't everything that he cracked up to be. In fact multiple sites are claiming that he had downright lied to his girlfriend, Nicole Napolitano and the audience about who he was. It's just another case of Real Housewives and Fake Relationships.

So on the show and via social networking sites. portraying himself as a blue collar worker and volunteer firefighter. The truth is that he is far from being blue collar, as a matter of fact with the amount of money that he has, I almost want to marry him. All About The Tea Wrote: "He’s the richest person in the entire 'Housewives' franchise. ENTIRE franchise. He’s heir to a billion-dollar empire." Yet on the show he plays a pauper, someone who has to work. Of course given the show's history of having psychos and criminals showcased, having a liar is par for the course. 

Another thing that Bobby is lying about actually liking Nicole. "He pretends to like her but in reality he can’t stand her. The couple gives the impression they’ve been together for some time but they only started dating one month prior to filming." There is no excuse for making someone think you like them when you don't. I'm positive that I won't be invited over to Sarah Palin's place for a good old fashioned Alaskan brawl. Yet the question remains why would he do this? AATT has the answer for you. "Bobby Ciasulli is a devoted 'Housewives' groupie, whose motive appears to be achieving television FAME and fan attention..." So basically the same reason that the women get involved with it. 

And just because I like it:

Captain America 3's Title Revealed

Earlier this year, I voluntarily went to go see Captain America: The Winter Solider. I know it's shocking but I had to support my future brother in law, didn't I? Sure Scott Evans doesn't know I exist but in my mind, we are so close to marriage that I can smell the divorce papers already. Anyways the movie was really good and you can tell that they set up the movie for a third (and perhaps final?) chapter in this saga. Today Marvel revealed what Captain America will be called, and the title should make fans very happy.

Without further ado: The third film will be called, Serpent Society. No, no it won't. Kevin Feige, President of Marvel revealed that fanboys and girls will get what they want and the movie will be called Captain America: Civil War. For those, like me, who have no idea why this is so exciting, just Google Marvel Civil War and you'll understand.

For those of you who only use Google to see Nick Jonas' grabbing his junk, I'll give you a simple summary. So the Government decides that superheroes need to register their powers, so that they can be regulated. Captain America is against this, but Iron Man is for it. Yep Marvel is pitting Chris Evans against Robert Downey Jr. Spider-man is caught in the middle but it is not known yet if he will make an appearance in the film, as Sony holds the rights to that character but word is Marvel is working with Sony, so it is a possibility.

What do you guys think of this?

What's going on with Ellen and Portia?

Like many good things, the peaceful, tabloid free existence that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi once knew, is coming to an end. Every day for the last few months there have been new rumors about arguments between the couple for varying reasons. Some say that they are fighting because Ellen is a control freak, others say the tension between them is all about children. Ellen and Portia of course deny all of these rumors, which leads to the question: What is really going on with Ellen and Portia?

One of the most recent rumors about them is that they missed a fundraiser because they got into an "epic" fight. According to the New York Post, “Ellen and Portia were delayed and were in the car on the way, when they had an epic fight, They ended up turning around and not going to the fundraiser.” Yet Ellen and Portia's laywer says that it's all a "lie." 

Somehow though them saying everything is just fine isn't sitting well. The old saying "where there's smoke, there's fire," jumps to mind. Sure every couple argues but there comes a point when they will have to fess up that things aren't as perfect as they want us to think they are. Or as one of my friend s wisely asked could this all be a publicity stunt for Portia's arc on Scandal? Stay tuned.

Blind Item Reveal: Jian Ghomeshi

XO Jane

I met a man I’ll call Keith at an outdoor concert in Toronto last year. I was sitting with a group of people, Jake Gyllenhaal among them (sorry for the name drop, but he factors into the story later), and Keith walked up to introduce himself to us.
I knew of Keith because he has a successful radio show in Canada. A lot of Canadians love him for his views, interviews, and radio voice.
As Keith schmoozed with the people around me, I enjoyed the concert and also tried to make Jake fall for me using telepathic love vibes. Just kidding. There were no love vibes, and the only feeling Jake had was annoyance after Keith arrived. He kept trying to talk to Jake, who wasn’t feeling his “I really want to get you on my show and maybe into your pants” vibe, so Keith soon turned his attention to me.
“Sorry, how do you pronounce your name again?” he said.
“Um, Carla,” I replied.
“Oh, I thought it was more complicated, like Carafalooota,” he said. I laughed.
A few minutes later, the concert was over, and my party and I left.
The next day, I sent Keith a public Twitter message saying it was nice to meet him. It was. I, like many Canadians, was a fan of his show.
Actually, truth be told, I’ve never listened to his show, but still, I appreciated him as a talented radio personality.
Keith wrote me a private message soon after saying he read some of my work online and really liked my writing. He also asked me if I’d like to join him to see Metric play the next night at the Opera House.
I’d always wanted to see Metric live, and I thought I might be able to make Keith my best gay friend in Toronto. I was still a newbie and needed friends. I also figured that the friendship might lead to exciting Toronto career opportunities down the line. He did say he liked my writing.
The next night, I met him at a wine bar for a quick drink before the show. When I walked in, I was greeted by both the overwhelming stench of his cologne and the sinking feeling that Keith was not, as I had assumed, gay. This wasn’t a friend date; it was a date, date –- at least to him.
He looked at me the way a creepy older man looks at a young, silly girl he’s going to buy a drink he’s planning to slip a roofie into. I didn’t know what to do. He was 15 years older than me, but what’s more, I found him totally unattractive and didn’t want to be on a date with him.
But I couldn’t just leave.
“So, you’re friends with Jake Gyllenhaal?” he asked.
“No. I met him yesterday and we talked about baseball for five minutes,” I said.
“Oh. He seems like a jerk, eh?” he said.
“I thought he was nice,” I said.
Nervous and trying to avoid eye contact with him, I proceeded to talk about nothing in particular for the next 20 minutes with such speed, he might have thought I had just done an eight ball in the bathroom.
He checked his phone approximately 35 times and mentioned the memoir he was writing about 10 times. Apparently, he was in a band when he was younger, or something. I wasn’t really paying attention.
Before my drink was finished, Keith rushed me out of the bar to get to the concert down the street.
In front of the small venue, he introduced me to a bunch of people he thought I would know.
“You’re meeting the who’s who of Canadian indie rock!” he whispered into my ear enthusiastically. I had no idea who they were, but most of them had cool beards. The way he introduced me, however, was disconcerting. I was being “presented,” in the same way Tom Cruise used to present Katie Holmes on red carpets. I did not like it.
I wanted to let him know I wasn’t into him, but he seemed like a harmless dork, and I didn’t want to embarrass him in front of his bearded friends.
As I talked to one of them, I’d look up every now and then to catch a glimpse of Keith staring at me intently with a strange smile on his face. He was giving me the heebie jeebies and, again, I wanted to leave.
But Metric. It’ll be fine once we’re inside, I thought, we’re just watching a concert.
There was no assigned seating, and we were standing on the balcony. As soon as the lights went down, and the first notes started playing, I felt a sweaty hand travel across the back of my dress and grab my ass.
That hand was Keith’s.
Shocked, I looked up at him like “WHAT?!” He looked back at me with sex eyes and smiled. Disgusted, I asked him to stop, and stepped away from him and his hand.
This is Metric playing the Opera House. Emily Haines, can you hear my heart beating like a hammer? HELP ME!
I figured he’d get the point since I moved, but instead, he followed me. I watched the concert intently, but he soon grabbed my hand to hold it.
His friends were right behind us, and they all smiled when I looked back. Despite my extreme discomfort, I felt I couldn’t tell Keith off, so I discreetly pulled my hand away, crossed my arms over my stomach and stared straight ahead.
When he started rubbing my back, I again told him to stop, and when he put his hand over my shoulders, I said I was hot and lifted it off.
“Oh yeah, you’re hot,” he replied.
Dying inside, I felt sad that not only had I lost interest in watching Metric, but they were also starting to sound like tainted torture music.
I was planning my exit strategy when Keith grabbed the strap my large purse and took it off my shoulder.
“What are you doing?” I said.
“Shhh,” he replied, placing my purse on the ground and slipping his arm around my waist to pull me closer.
“What the fuck?!” I said. “You don’t put a woman’s purse on the dirty ground.” Apparently, I have more respect for a leather purse from my mom than for my own body. Not really — but this was my breaking point.
“But it’s in the way,” he said. He seemed intrigued, and challenged, by my passionate reaction.
“I’ll be back.” I couldn’t take it anymore. Keith had gone from harmless dork to repulsive sexual predator.
I ran down the stairs and called my sister from the bathroom. “What do I do?” I was concerned that he would somehow ruin my fledgling career in Canadian media forever if I bailed on him, as stupid as that sounds.
“Get outta there,” my sister said. I wanted to. Desperately. Running down the stairs had given me a taste of the freedom that could so easily be mine if I just ran outside and never looked back. But I didn’t want to be rude, and I thought it best to leave on good terms.
(This is the part where I really want to go back in time and shake myself.)
I did what any good, failed Catholic girl plagued by a crippling sense of guilt would do: I lied.
“I have to go, I have a terrible headache — a migraine. I also have to work very early. Sorry,” I said, looking towards the EXIT sign with a renewed hopefulness that I hadn’t felt in hours.
“Oh no. I’ll drive you,” he said.
“NO! I mean, no. I don’t want to ruin the show for you. I’ll get a cab.”
“I can’t let you take a cab if you have a migraine,” he said, leading me down the stairs with a “concerned” creepy hand on the small of my back.
I insisted on taking a cab until I realized that he was walking me to his car, which was right outside.
All but defeated, I got into his car, pissed off that I was doing so, and stared out the window listlessly.
Even though I had a terrible fake migraine, he insisted on talking to me.
“Do you recognize the colors of my car?” he said.
“They are black and red. Like Spider-Man?” I said.
“Ha! No. That’s silly. They’re the colors of my show,” he laughed.
“But your show is on the radio, and I don’t listen to it,” I confessed. I was DONE.
“Did I tell you I’m writing a book?” he asked.
“Multiple times,” I said. “You can stop here.”
We were a block from my apartment and there was no way he was going to know my address.
“I’ll walk you to the door,” he said, unbuckling his seatbelt.
“No, you won’t,” I said. “Thank you for the concert and the ride. Have a good night.”
He leaned in and I avoided his lips by giving him a half-hearted hug, but he still managed to peck the side of my pursed mouth as I was turning to get out of the car. I urgently yanked on the door handle until the door sprang open, and scurried out.
Once I reached my front door, I started crying in shame. A thick layer of self-loathing had settled over my once-optimistic heart. Why had I handled the night that way? Why didn’t I tell him he was acting like as asshole and I only agreed to meet him because I, like the rest of Canada, thought he was gay? Why am I so passive in awkward situations? WHY? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?
I had a hot shower to remove his gross cologne stench, which had stuck to me like an airborne virus.
The next morning, I awoke to a text from him.
“If you’re late for work, blame it on me ;) ”
I didn’t reply to Keith’s text, thinking that he would take the hint; but based on past experience I should have known Keith does not a hint take.
As his messages became more and more pathetic, (e.g., “Did we break up already?”), I eventually confessed the truth and told him that I was sorry but I thought it was a friend date, not a real date, and I wasn’t interested.
To this, he replied: “Eeep! Totes diff. vibe from yest.” (He actually texted those words. Like that. To a girl he was interested in.)
Over the next two weeks, his texts begged me to give him another chance. He even went so far as to promise that he looks better with TV makeup on, like that would make a difference.
I felt sorry for him. Clearly being a C-list Canadian celebrity hadn’t afforded him any “game.”
He finally stopped texting, but every time his name came up in conversation, or I saw his face in an ad, I cringed.
In talking to my friends Crystal and Melissa, I found out that Keith has tried his same creepy-ass moves out on many other girls. He once lured a friend of theirs into a hotel room to “watch a movie,” and tried to sleep with her once she sat on the bed. She, too, had thought him harmless and gay beforehand.
This is me now. Hardened. Suspicious. More Lucille 1 than Lucille 2. I’ll stop making Arrested Development references now.
Two months later, I was walking down the street and passed a man who was wearing an offensive amount of Keith’s pungent cologne. Overcome by scent-memory nausea, I vomited into a nearby trashcan. A concerned older lady came up to me. “Are you pregnant, dear?” she asked.
“Only with disgust, thank God,” I said, smiling. She smiled back, perplexed.
And that was how I expelled the gross feelings left over from the worst “date” I’ve ever gone on.

Is Honey Boo Boo Ending?

As has been mentioned before I detest reality shows. Most of the people who appear on the have no talent, Kim Kardashian, and only got their show because of a scandal. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was no exception, except instead of a scandal, it was a spinoff of a horrible show called Toddlers and Tiaras. Now though, the future of Honey Boo Boo is in question, as TLC questions whether or not to continue with the series.

Honey Boo Boo is the star of the show, however she is a young child so she is surrounded by her family. Her mother, Mama June split with her father earlier this year. As is often the case with these things, Mama June decided that she needed to start dating someone else. Once again as is often the case she decided to go back to her ex-boyfriend, Mark McDaniel. Nothing too bad about that right? Every pot needs a lid.

This is where the network becomes a little skeptical about the direction that things are taking. See McDaniel is a convicted child molester, and the child that he was convicted of molesting is somehow associated with Mama June. This makes the network nervous because they are trying to clean up their image and don't really want this sort of thing around their schedule. A spokesperson sent out this statement “TLC is not currently in production on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series,” Deadline was the first to report this story.

Renee Zellweger Is Agoraphobic

Much has been said about Renee Zellweger's 'new' face. Many are claiming that she has had some major surgery done, while Renee has vehemently denied these claims. There are a lot of people making fun of her, which can only result in hurt feelings and reinforcing the gripping fear that holds Renee hostage. Multiple sources are confirming that Renee Zellweger is agoraphobic.

For the last few years people have wondered where the one time superstar had gone. Most of us just figured her time in Hollywood was over and she was accepting it with dignity and grace. Enty Lawyer from CDAN though says it's more than that. He writes, "She calls it stage fright. There is some of that to be sure because she can freeze in front of a camera. It is one reason she hates doing awards shows or anything requiring her to read a teleprompter." It is sad to think that Renee has to deal with this but there is more. Enty continues on to say "...she has suffered the past five or six years with actually leaving her own house. It is rare she can manage and when she does it is usually with her boyfriend by her side. She prefers to be alone with him, or just alone is fine with her too." There is a time to be alone and a time to be with people, but relying on one person is scary. 

Of course Enty insinuates that the boyfriend may be making the problem worse for his own selfish gain. "There is talk that her boyfriend likes to have her under his control and maybe had made things worse for his benefit." I hope that Renee deals with this issue rather than sweeping it under the rug and pretending that everything is ok.

Murphy Brown's Greatest Achievement

For years, I have missed and loved Murphy Brown. She was sarcastic, witty, intelligent, everything that I imagine myself to be. However it wasn't until I watched the entire series in a few marathon sessions that I realized that I had been missing something as a writer. The characters stay the same throughout the show with very little change but a lot of growth, that was something anyone should be able to see. No the greatest achievement of this groundbreaking sitcom was something else, Murphy Brown dared to do something that very few other TV shows have done.

 Throughout the entire 10 season run of the series Murphy had quite a few lovers.Her ex-husband kicked off an arc that would ultimately define the series, Jerry Gold would go on to arguably be her soulmate. There were others but they didn't last for very long and most weren't mentioned again. Though there was one man who was a constant in her life, her best friend: Frank Fontana.

Frank and Murphy shared a deep, unconditional love with one another. Sure they would argue and try to out maneuver one another, but at the end of the day their friendship always came first. Which in the era we live in now means that they are meant to be together and the show would play the will or won't they card until the audience was ready to revolt. However since the writers of Murphy Brown always zigged when you thought that they would zag, they two remained pals and nothing more. That is the mark of a truly great show right there! Two actors who have chemistry in spades and they choose to stick to the characters just being friends.

Sure there were two episodes when it seemed like they might go that route but ultimately they realized they were better off as friends. The first happened in the first season (actually in the first batch of 13 episodes) when Murphy wants to try to have a baby with Frank. He can't donate because of motility problems, so they try to have sex to hilarious results. Ironically the second time happens in the final season. After a lengthy discussion  the two decide to try going on a date to hilarious results. Of course Frank was trying to stall Murphy so that the surprise party he was throwing her could be put together, but the conversation they had afterward was so sweet and poignant that it would be remiss not to mention it. Frank had turned the FYI set into a replica of American Bandstand, and Murphy asked him for the first dance. During which she says to him, "Boyfriends come and go, but a best friend is forever." And that folks is how you wrap up one of the most interesting friendships in TV history.

The Voice Feud: Shakira vs Gwen Stefani

Why is it every time there is a successful show with more than one woman, feud rumors crop up? Desperate Housewives, Sex and  The City, and countless other shows were successful and plagued by rumors of the women hating one another. The tradition now continues with America's  favorite singing competition, The Voice. That's right folks we have a Feud on The Voice and it's between Shakira and Gwen Stefani!

I know I'm just as shocked as you guys are that Christina Aguilera isn't involved in this feud. Anyways apparently the pop stars are rivals not only in the music industry but also within the world of their shared reality show. The confusing thing is trying to figure out why they don't like one another, seeing as they are not even on the show together. Entry Lawyer writes that Shakira "was noticeably absent from a photo shoot she was supposed to attend." He goes on to say that "She can't stand..." Gwen  but gave no indication as what caused this.

It  "really ticked off "the producers though. Maybe that's why she's not on the docket to return to the show anytime soon?

Jon Bernthal's Bad Behavior

So right now The Walking Dead is like the biggest thing on TV, and that means the stars of the show are gaining popularity. It has to be a dream come true for all of those involved and will certainly help their careers. Of course along with success comes the bad behavior, think Shannen Doherty in the original 90210 years. Now though it's time for us to cover TWD's Jon Bernthal's bad behavior.

Part of the responsibility of actors is to promote the show that they are on, in Bernthal's case it meant that he went to Wizard World in Chicago. Like Stephen Collins, Bernthal seems to like his girls very young and according to Blind Gossip he did everything in his power to be creepy and hook up with a young girl. BG writes: "He called them over to his table or followed them around. He quizzed them about who had accompanied them to the convention. Some of those girls were as young as 16 and were at the convention with their parents!" That's not even the worst part of the story, the creep-o-meter is raised  "If he could catch them without their parents nearby, he would stare at their breasts, ask them what they were doing later and ask them for the name of the hotel at which they were staying." Wow and did I fail to mention that Jon is a married man with children of his own?

His bad behavior is not limited to just being the creepy old man that people try to keep their kids away from. In fact apparently Bernthal is notorious for drinking while signing autographs at all kinds of Comic Con events, BG explains "We’ve also heard that at other Comic Con events, he sits at his table drinking liquor in the middle of the day while signing autographs for young kids. Nice."

Breaking: Oscar De La Renta Has Died

Sad news to bring you tonight: Oscar De La Renta has passed away. For the last 8 years the iconic fashion designer had been battling cancer. The man was so good at what he did that he dressed First Ladies ranging from Jackie O to Hillary Clinton to Laura Bush. He had his started his own label in the mid-1960's. His most recent design was seen at George Clooney's wedding.

This story is still developing....

Let's Talk: Stop Flights To Ebola Plagued Countries?

The Ebola epidemic is in full force right now. Panic is rising among most (if not all) people, with people falling into two camps. One camp swears that if you even see a person with Ebola, you will become infected with it and die. The other believes that it's not all that bad and you won't catch it unless you have contact with someone who is infected. Personally I fall somewhere in between, not knowing much about it myself. However a good question was asked on Facebook: Should we stop all non-essential flights into countries with a high concentration of Ebola infections?

The response on Trevor Donovan's page, he posed this question first, seems to be mixed with a slight majority saying yes. Most of the people think that it is essential to protect the United States from this disease, even though it has already crossed our borders. The people who are saying no are asserting that not only should we aid our fellow humans but who has the right to decide what is essential and what is not.

I will allow Trevor Donovan to end this post with his question: "Should all non essential flights to and from Ebola-ridden countries be stopped till the Ebola crisis is under control?"

Days Speculation: Is EJ Alive?

It's been a while since I've done a speculation post, and I've never done one on Days of Our Lives. However an article over at Daytime Confidential raised my flag a bit and made me curious about things. So I read the article twice and then watched the show to see if maybe I could come up with some storyline that would make sense. With Alison Sweeney and James Scott leaving the show, the writers had to come up some kind of compelling story to write them off. But EJ being shot by a newbie thug? That seems outrageous but is it? Could EJ actually be alive?

Let's set the scene here. Clyde is new to town, and he is supposed to be this big bad villain. What better way to establish this by having him order the hit on one of the most popular characters on the canvas. Not only does it make him seem like a badass but there's going to be very little blow back against him because A.) he didn't actually commit the murder and B.) James Scott was already leaving the show of his own free will. This could set Clyde to have a long, evil life in Salem, USA.

Yet as the DC article points out, Kristen injected EJ's body with some sort of chemical. Presumably the same one that has brought John Black back to life. In the above argument I said that by having Clyde put a hit on EJ, this sets him up as a true villain. If EJ was injected with the bring you back to life potion, this opens up a whole world of possibility. Before Alison Sweeney's final episode, the reveal that EJ is alive could reverberate through the DiMera clan and with Sami. EJami could decide to leave Salem in order to have their happily ever after.

Of course this being a soap, and particularly EJ and Sami, the thirst for revenge will never be far. So Sami could pop into Salem occasionally gathering notes on what people are doing and she could keep an eye on Clyde. Then when the timing is right (something that the writers should look to General Hospital for), and Sweeney/Scott are ready to come back to the show, we could have one helluva revenge tale. Imagine the first scene, when Sami reveals herself. She could hold out her hand and show the rock to her mother and proudly proclaim loud enough for everyone to hear, "I am MARRIED!" As that bomb is set off, then EJ walks in. And boom goes the dynamite.

Lego Batman Coming Soon

Did anyone else see The Lego Movie from earlier this year? It was one of the best flicks to come out this year. It also made a boatload of cash, which of course caused the studio to greenlight a sequel after the second day that it was in theaters. However in even better news, there will be a spinoff of the franchise. That's right folks Lego Batman is coming soon.

Will Arnett is expected to reprise his role as Lego Batman. Though there are no details about what the plot will be but it is safe to bet that it will be kid friendly. How cool would it be to get a very adult action story in the form of an animated movie. Yes I know that there are plenty of them but this would be the first major motion picture, not a direct to DVD story. 

Breaking: Amanda Bynes Hospitalized

It's been a rough day for the former starlet. Her day started off with her accusing her father of molesting her, then recanting that statement. Instead of just saying I messed up, Amanda Bynes accused her father of implanting a microchip in her brain. The craziness was expounded when Bynes told Perez Hilton that people could hear her brain.

One of these things would be enough to warrant someone taking action, but all of them together pretty much demanded action. Her parents convinced her to go back to Los Angeles, where there was a car waiting for her. Instead of taking her to The London Hotel like she thought, she was taken directly to a psychiatric hospital where she was put on a 5150 hold. That means she was admitted involuntarily and can be held for 72 hours or up to 14 days, depending on what the doctors think. Her parents will also seek another conservatorship.

Daniel Franzese Please Go Home

One night stands that won't go home. This is a serious problem that effects millions and millions of people. Then along comes Sam Smith begging his trick to Stay and viola the problem is exasperated. What is a horny yet single person to do when they have gotten what they wanted from someone and they don't want to be around them any more? The answer is simple, play the parody of Smith's hit song Please Go Home featuring Mean Girls' Daniel Franzese.

The parody features Franzese with another (HOT) dude. The trick only wants to take selfies and spend more time with the man who he had just had coitus with. Does anyone else love that because of The Big Bang Theory, we can use coitus again? No just me. Well fine then. Back to the synopsis, Franzese is begging this guy to go home but he doesn't seem to get it. Throw in a few drag queens and the San Francisco Gay Men's chorus and you have yourself a viral parody.

Nick Jonas Would Show His Junk

Does anybody else remember when the Jonas Brothers pulled those douchey purity rings out of their arses and swore that they would remain pure until they got married? Apparently niether does Nick Jonas who is doing everything in his power to be seen as this generations sex symbol. As cute as you are Nick, Channing Tatum has the title and he ain't giving it up. Anyways in order to further promote this new sexy image that he is cultivating, Nick Jonas says that he would show his penis in a movie/tv show/Playgirl spread.

Ok so I confess I made up the bit about a Playgirl spread. Though with the way that he is doing things, would it really surprise anyone if he did pose naked in the porn magazine? In order to promote his new single and his new TV show Kingdom (on Direct TV), Nick has been the rounds of interviews. During the interview with E! Nick said "Never say never,  If the art required it and it was a role I felt really committed to and like I had to go there with it, I would do whatever it takes to tell the story." Don't you love how these people always say that it's for the 'art' when they realize that people only want to see them if they are naked?

Yes I know that I am pandering by throwing up the pic of Nick grabbing his crotch but Royal needs some fancy chicken alfredo from his favorite Italian restaurant in Little Italy.

Picture Of The Day: Trevor Donovan Shirtless Playing The Guitar

Awkward Ending

Once upon a time ago MTV actually played music videos. Now I know for you youngins this makes no sense, seeing as this is the network that brought us Jersey Shore. Of course they have tried to make amends for that travesty and for making Snooki a household name by giving us shows like Teen Wolf and Awkward. The latter of which has been renewed and cancelled at the same time. That sound you hear is the sound of millions of tweens crying that Awkward is ending.

Tuesday nights will not be the same after the fifth season of Awkward draws to a close, which given how networks are with their shows will be sometime in the year 2020. The show was a critical favorite right off the bat and drew very big ratings for the former Music channel. Of course compared to a show like Modern Family, Awkward wouldn't be considered anything more than a cult favorite.

Yet there will be tween girls who are going to threaten me with death after they read this. I just want those girls to know that I feel their pain. I myself have had to say goodbye to some of my favorite shows. Every Wednesday night I still look for Dawson's Creek on The WB, Oh dear God I have just revealed my age.

Are you sad about Awkward Ending?

Clarissa Is Coming Back (Sorta)

Yesterday I ruined childhoods by covering the story of Stephen Collins being a pedophile, so today I am trying to make amends for that. The 90's were a really cool time, when Nickelodeon was popular, the Spice Girls were invading, and one girl could explain it all. say the last three words to anybody that grew up in the grunge era and they will get giddy with excitement, because everybody loved that show. And now ladies and gentlegays I am happy to inform you that Clarissa will be explaining it all again in her (sorta) comeback.

Before Melissa Joan Heart was Sabrina the Teenage Witch and well before her career ended and she had to do that awful ABC Family sitcom (Melissa and Joey), she played an endearing, yet slightly aggravating character named Clarissa Darling, who was always able to explain things. The show ended and the world wept. However the creator Mitchell Kriegman always kept the character close to his heart and now a book, titled Things I Can't Explain, will come with further exploits of the characters we love. Kriegman says that the most anticipated book since Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows will be out next fall, and he gives us a sneak peak into the plot: "It’s a complete reimagining of the world, the characters, and the idea behind the character. Clarissa is in her late 20s, and now she’s gone from knowing it all at 14 to feeling like she’s starting over in her 20s." This would have been enough but he goes to give us even more scoop.  "She’s like a lot of people that age these days, especially with student debt and the job market as it is. The government should forgive students' debt — or vastly reduce it. It’s holding back the economy and a generation of people who sometimes have to make bad decisions because of it." Eep I cannot wait for this. 

Can it be next fall already? I really want to read this book.

Far From 7th Heaven: Stephen Collins Sexually Abused Children

And now that the headline has ruined your childhood, I shall be expecting residual checks from therapists for a very long time. Serious time though, many people grew up learning life lessons from Pastor Eric Camden on the hit teen drama 7th Heaven. However the actor who portrayed that beloved character is in middle of a scandal so big that it's already costing him jobs. Stephen Collins has CONFESSED to sexually exploiting and abusing children.

During a therapy session with now ex-wife Faye Grant, Collins copped to what he did. Reports are now surfacing that he had been under investigation for quite some time on the allegations but there was never enough evidence to bring him to trial. He has confessed to exposing himself to three little girls, and making on touch his penis. The NYPD Special Victims Unit is investigating right now, and while there are no charges as of yet, don't be surprised when there are.

Because of this scandal, Collins has been dropped from Ted 2. Yes even Seth MacFarlane has his limits, and he won't tolerate this killing his momentum in the movies. Seeing as it was a small part (no pun intended) it should be relatively easy to recast the role or write it out completely.

Is JK Rowling Teasing Another Harry Potter Book?

I just finished reading the Harry Potter series for the second time. It was a magical experience to read the books all the way through, without the disappointment of having to wait for another one to come out. I think this what they mean when they say bingeing. When I finished Deathly Hallows, I thought to myself, damn why couldn't she have delved deeper into this plotline or that one. The James/Lily/Snape triangle is rife with drama, magical drama. If Snape had never called Lily a mudblood would she have ended up with him? I told myself that maybe I should write a fanfiction continuation, and have it published ala 50 Shades of Grey. However that thought was short lived because JK Rowling is making everyone think that she is writing another Harry Potter book.

It all started yesterday when JK tweeted “Very busy at the moment working on a novel, tweaking a screenplay and being involved in @lumos campaigns. Back when I've finished something!” Not so unusual for one of the world's leading authors to be busy and not have time to engage on social media. It is rather unusual however when said author then offers up a tantalizing tweet that sends the interweb into convulsions about what it means. Here's the tweet that has people abuzz: “Cry, foe!  Run amok!  Fa awry!  My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense.”  Hmm I smell the return of Voldermort. 

Many people have assumed that this is the clue that many Potter-philes have been waiting for: The return of Harry Potter. MoviePilot even has someone who says that the tweet is an anagram meaning:  "Harry returns! Won't say any details now. A week off. No comment". I have actually debated with a friend of mine about whether or not there is a chance for Voldermort's return. She contends no that all of the Horcruxes were destroyed and there is no way for him to come back. My argument is that Harry came back from the dead, why can't Voldermort. Even if it's not the big V, there could be a new Big Bad that rises to power, Voldermort wasn't the first as we learned throughout the series, and he certainly wouldn't be the last.

GH Speculation: Will Robin Die?

The wise and gracious Carolyn Hinsey once said that soap fans "should be careful what they wish for.." This was in regards to Crystal Hunt's very poorly received turn on One Life To Live. However it certainly applies to any of the soaps today as well, especially when something that starts out negative begins to make the inroads that the writers/producers want. Right now General Hospital fans are up in arms about how Kimberly McCullough (Robin) keeps coming and going from Port Charles. Now the rumors suggest that GH may take a drastic step to appease fans: The question is will Robin have to die?

If ever there was a character that had the odds stacked against her it is Robin Scorpio Drake. She is HIV positive, which alone could make a great story not only for McCullough but for her co-stars. The writers could have Robin fall ill, which would ultimately lead to her death. That story alone would effect just about everyone on canvas, and could probably bring back a few missing players. Finola Hughes would rock a true Robin dying story, as she does everything else that she does. Tristan Rogers could probably be coaxed back for a few episodes to grieve his TV daughter. Jason Thompson would once again prove why he should be the new leading man of GH.


So the story as I imagine would go something like this. Robin gets sick, and it continues to worsen. Her family and friends gather around her bedside, as her Doctor, tells them that Robin won't make it. Of course the Doc would be the Britch, which would make everyone demand a second opinion. By the time someone else gets to her Robin will have died. Anna will pull away from everyone as she realizes that she was absent form her daughters life. Maxie (Kristen Storms) will once again spiral out of control, falling off the wagon and right back into a puddle of vodka. Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) will try to be the rock for everyone but slowly find herself losing it, seeing Robin everywhere. Perhaps we can even get a Casey The Alien cameo.


Another way that they can kill Robin is via one of her campy adventures, that brings her in and out of town. Some of the suspense of Robin being threatened has been let out, since we know that she won't die. However what if the show gave the fans what they claim they want and did a surprise Friday cliffhanger, where Robin does die. No fake out, an honest to goodness death. Since the show is into throwbacks right now, maybe the Cassadines are on the hunt for the Ice Princess and are trying to use Robin to lure Luke out of hiding. It works and as Stavros and Luke fight over a gun, it goes off. They cut to Robin making a wounded face, clutching her stomach. On Monday, we learn that they have killed her off forever.

Do you think GH should kill Robin?

Zac Efron Won't Be Stripping In Magic Mike 2

Ladies and gays, it's almost time for us to get our viewing parties together again because that secret wish we all had when Channing Tatum appeared on screen completely naked in the first Magic Mike is coming true. No, not that he was our husband, that we would get a sequel to the male stripper movie sillies. Here's what we know about the movie so far, men are taking off their clothes. So far those men include: Matt Bomer (yay!), Alexandr Pettyfer (show us full fromtal), and of course course Channing Tatum (why wear clothes at all?). Alas Matthew McConaughey won't be taking off his clothes. Unfortunately neither will a fellow hunk, who happens to want to be shirtless all the time. That's right Zac Efron won't be stripping in the sequel to Magic Mike either.

Don't get me wrong, Zac wanted to be in the movie. He thought that he was going to be in the movie. He auditioned for the movie at the MTV Movie Awards. Hell he even showed his butt in That Awkward Moment to get people excited about him taking off his clothes. OK let's be real here we were all already excited for him to take off his clothes. Blind Gossip alleges that Zac "actively soliciting the part in public interviews, telling people that he was sure he was going to get the role, and sending emails and text messages and videos and photos of himself..."To Channing. If you have pictures or videos of Zac Efron stripping or naked then you owe it to humanity to share them. 

Channing just isn't comfortable letting Zac be in the movie. See after all of the trouble and bad stuff that he's done, Zac is now considered a bad risk. With the Magic Mike franchise taking off (pun intended), Channing doesn't want to see his money well dry up because of someone else. BG claims that Channing "...simply didn’t want to risk having his successful franchise derailed by an addict who can not seem to control his partying and attention-seeking behavior." Still though you could audition Zac stripping and baring his booty, then release it as a DVD extra. Or hell go the Farrah Abraham route and make it a sex tape. Just an idea to expand the Magic Mike universe for all the gays and gals. 

Are you upset that Zac Efron Won't Be Stripping In Magic Mike XXL?

Is Britney Spears Charlotte From Sex And The City

Are there two things that gay men love more? I mean a post about our "Queen of Pop" and a classic sitcom that people still talk about to this day. Maybe penises but I already did one yesterday that has people vomiting so unless Zac Efron takes off his clothes, I think I'll wait a bit before I do another. Instead I will focus on the question in the headline, Is Britney Spears the real life version of Charlotte from Sex and the City?

Many are going to cry no way, Jose. First I want to say that this is Royal Eduardo writing and not Jose. Secondly I think that she might be, and it doesn't change the fact that I love her at all. She broke up with that cheating douchebag, David Lucado because he was caught on camera messing around with a porn star. If you're going to cheat on one of the most famous women in the world, you might want to make sure that nobody is recording you. Anyways so about 2 seconds after she broke up with him, she went on The Tonight Show and Jimmy Fallon joked about setting up a Tinder account for her. Maybe that shouldn't have been a joke though because apparently she is reaching out to her exes for love and comfort. One ex, John Sunduhl, told The National Enquirer that Britney reached out to him " Ten minutes after I saw that she broke up, she called me and said, ‘Hey, I just want you to know that we split up because he was with some porn star.’ I was like, ‘Okay, sorry to hear that.’” What kind of dick move is it to kick a girl when she's down? There was no reason on God's green Earth for him to run to the tabloids and tell them that Brit called him. I guess I answered my own question with one word, Green. Money. 

So where does the comparison to Charlotte come in? Well remember when Charlotte was desperate to marry in season 3? This is what Britney is  doing right now. She wants to find love, companionship, and a way to get her daddy to stop controlling her life. The problem is that she is going about it all wrong. Life lesson #1 for our girl needs to be that an ex is an ex for a reason. You can go back to the well for sex but not for love. And only if the sex is truly amazing and not just because you need to get some.
