Breaking: Ricky Martin Comes Out Of The Closet

In a post on his brand new website, Ricky Martin revealed to the world that he is a gay man. The begining of the post explains why he decided to come out. "A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that  were too heavy for me to keep inside"

He goes onto talk about how people in his life talked him out of coming out several times over." "Ricky it's not important", "it's not worth it", "all the years you've worked and everything you've built will collapse", "many people in the world are not ready to accept your truth, your reality, your nature"

And at the very end of the post, the moment we have all been waiting for. He comes out as a gay man. A fortunate gay man. In his words "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."

Demi to Kim: No 'Moore' Slavery

Demi Moore is not happy with Kim Kardashian. On he twitter Kim posted a pic of girls night out with Serena Williams  and Kelly Rowland with a caption that read ""Big pimpin w @SerenajWilliams @LaLaVazquez @Kelly_Rowland Love u girls!'"

Demi wasted no time on finding out what was actually meant. "Are you using the word 'pimpin' as in pimping?"

Kim replied Doesn't everyone? LOL."

 That was enough to set Demi off, and she let everyone know what she thought of Kims little statement "No disrespect I love a girls night out but a pimp and pimping is nothing more than a slave owner!" She continued "If we want to end slavery we need to stop glorifying the 'pimp' culture."

Levi Challenges Sarah...Again

Playgirl model and Sarah Palin arch rival (not to mention Grandbaby daddy) Levi Johnston is once again setting up a rivalry with the former Alaskan Governor. While Sarah Palins Alaska will be shown on TLC, Levi wants to shop around his own show about his home state. Starting today Levi will be "going to buyers, parking out front in an RV and taking meetings for an Alaska-based show."

Profile Of The Week: Marc Cherry

Early in his career Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, worked over at Designing Women. That isn't a mistake, before he moved over to the other series about sassy women (Golden Girls) he was an assistant to Dixie Carter. In 1990 he made the jump over to The Golden Girls where he would serve as a writer and producer for the remainder of the series. He then helped the short lived spin off The Golden Palace.

In the mid-90's he created The 5 Mrs Buchanans which lasted one one season and then he co-created the show The Crew which was also short lived. After a few years, in 2001 he once again tried his hand at creating a show again. This time it was Some of My Best Friends. That show once again had a short shelf life.

In 2002 a conversation he had with his mother would alter the course of his life forever. That conversation led him to develop Desperate Housewives. HBO, FOX, NBC, Lifetime Television, and Showtime all passed on the series. In a stroke right out of his show, his agent was arrested for embezzlement. His new agent brought it to ABC, the network that bought it on the spot. After the Housewives became a sensation Cherry was offered several lucrative offers from the studios that had once shunned him. He signed on with Touchstone, the one company that had shown faith in him.

Meghan McCain: “‘My intention is to promote dialogue in this country.’”

Meghan McCain had to defend her position on gay marriage at George Washington University. Protesters showed up on both sides of the fence of that issue. Student paper The GW Statue said “McCain — the daughter of former Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain — was met with a protest by GW's Young America's Foundation before the event for her stance on gay marriage, but McCain fired back during her speech, telling the audience that she is outspoken on provocative issues because she believes in them,”

Meghan told the protesters, and seemingly taking at a shot at a certain Alaskan politician turned talking head, that her stance is not based on politics, rather what she believe is principled. “‘I am not Ann Coulter. I am not Glenn Beck. I am not trying to be a pundit. I am not trying to have a show on FOX,’”

She always noted that she wanted to open up the discussion in America.“‘My intention is to promote dialogue in this country.’”

Emily Robinson: It Boggles My Mind

CMT described the song 'Ain't No Son' off the self titled debut album from Court Yard Hounds, as slightly bluegrass, slightly rock. “This song's bluegrassy intro is from the point of view of a disenfranchised young man. The rest of the song, as it shifts into rocker mode, describes the narrow viewpoint of his angry father. The lyrics aren't specific about the exact points of family contention, but Robison had a story in mind."

Court Yard Hounds is the side project of Dixie Chicks, and sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson. They formed the group while waiting for third Dixie Chick Natalie Maine to want to record again. Robinson says the story she has in mind for the song is about a gay man coming out to his angry father. “‘I turned the TV on, and it was A&E or one of those documentary kind of shows about these poor teenage kids who are devastated that their parents won't let 'em stay in the house because they found out they were gay,’ she explains. ‘The lines, 'You ain't no son to me/Eight pound baby boy I bounced on my knee' were around from the very beginning. That idea, how can you have kids and love them so much and one day decide not to — it just boggled my mind.’”

Celebrity Fit Club did some good for Kevin Federline. The former back up dancer who packed on the pounds after his divorce from Britney Spears, had at one claimed he didn't know he was fat. 8 months after pics of his weight gain surfaced, he is looking slimmer, healthier.

"It's so freeing," Ace Young said of his nude scene is the musical "Hair." The former American Idol contestant says that he is very fond of his body. "If I could walk down 42nd Street with a bar of soap and let the rain clean me, I would, I'm comfortable with my body."

Denied: Jersey Shores To Air All Episodes

State Superior Court Judge Joseph Foster denied 2 more defendants that claim their reputations will be ruined if the episodes of Jersey Shore they appear on, are allowed to be aired. A police officer and his wife appear in the series, are fighting cast members of the  trashy MTV Hit. 

Alyssa Follows Dancing

Alyssa Milano's new series 'Romantically Challenged' has been given a sweet time slot. The show, which follows four friends trying to find love and happiness, will follow 'Dancing With The Stars' starting on April 12.

It's being reported that Hailey Glassman, the woman who allegedly broke up Kates marriage to ex husband Jon is getting her own reality series called 'Starting Over'. “I’m moving out in August and probably moving to the Santa Monica area, “I was offered to do a show called Starting Over, which will be about me leaving New York and all the negative behind me.” Hayley said.

Madonna's Family Movie

Madonnas new movie, about Edward VIII will be a family event. Sources have indicated that she found a small role for daughter Lourdes. "She's arranged a small role for Lourdes. It's not a significant part but it will give her a good taste of life in the movie business."

Lourdes has indicated that she wants to follow in her moms foot steps, and Madonna is very happy to lend a helping hand to her daughter. "Lourdes has made it clear she wants some kind of career in the entertainment industry and her mum is more than happy to help."

Hateful Tea Party

CNN has confirmed that one member of the infamous Tea Party hurled a gay slur at openly gay congressman Barney Frank, and another spit on  African American congressman Emmanuel Cleaver. Sarah Palin, while campaigning for Senator John McCain this weekend denied both events. 

Mat Damon Recieves 'Mid-Career' Award

“Matt Damon is one of the finest actors of our generation. I know that because when he came into my office for Invictus, he said, ‘Clint, I am one of the finest actors of my generation.’ In fact he couldn’t understand why I cast Morgan Freeman as Mandela, he felt he could handle it.” Clint Eastwood joked at an American Cinematheque gala last night that was held in Matt Damons honor. They honored Matt for his philanthropic and work in film. A televised version of the event will be aired on ABC.

News That Shocks No One

Fox has officially pulled the plug on the long running hit drama 24. According to former Executive Producer and director Jon Cassar the crew  “has been told that 24 has come to an end. There will be no season 9. It’s been a great run.”

Series star Keifer Sutherland said “The writers are producing the equivalent of 12 films a year, which is unheard of, and Howard felt to do a ninth would be potentially damaging, We both felt strongly that there has been a demand and an interest in a 24 film, which would be a two-hour representation of a 24-hour day, so we felt it was time to move in that direction.”

Blossom's Big Bang Spoiler Alert!!!!!

90's fans you have a reason to celebrate. Starting with the May 24 finale of The Big Bang Theory, Mayim Bialik will have a (potentially) recurring role, as Sheldon's love interest. Mayim is best known for her role on quintessential 90's show 'Blossom.' This will be her second recurring character, she also plays a guidance counselor on "The Secret Life of an American Teenager."

Her new character is described as a female Sheldon. The two meet on a dating site and they are paired because of the similarities in their personality.

Helping Hand: Coming Out and More


I caught my boyfriend jerking off to porn and when I asked him about it, he claimed it was a natural thing for guys to do. I think that if he was horny he should have come to me and made love, we've been together for 8 years and are suppose to be trying for a baby. What should I do?--Distraught Girl


If you're upset by this act then yes you need to let your bf know it. Masturbating is a normal pat of life and is not disgusting by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe the baby making is causing some discomfort with him and he doesn't know how to talk to you about it. One of you needs to broach the subject before it tuns into a bigger issue.


My best friend doesn't like my girlfriend. He says she's too possessive and a bitch, my girlfriend says my best is a loser and I need to stop talking to him. I love them both. Divided loyalty


If either of them is asking you to choose, neither truly cares about you. Love is not selfish, tell them that if that can't get along then be civil or neither will be in your life.


I want to come out of the closet and live my life openly, but I don't know how. What if my friends and family abandon me? I keep reading these horror stories that gay kids always get kicked out of their house or worse. I don't think I can deal with that. Please help! Gay Kid

Gay Kid,

If your friends are truly your friends then they will stick beside you no matter what. Family is a different story but not all coming out stories have an unhappy ending. Most of the people out there don't have such a dramatic coming out. Yes parents may have a hard time dealing with the fact that their child is gay but what Im going to tell you, I tell everyone, If it took you 18 years to come to terms with being gay then you need to give your parents and other people equal time to come to terms. Most mothers and I suspect some fathers already suspect that their child is gay.

Editors Note: I am not a psychiatrist, nor do I have a degree in psychology. The advice I give is strictly from personal experience. If you have a problem and would like some advice please send me an email @ GenerationGossip@yahoo.com

Hunk Of The Week: Jake Gyllenhaal

Mandy's Musings: Who Do They Think They're Writing For?

Mandy's Musings: Who Do They Think They're Writing For?

By Mandy Bates

Who Do They Think They’re Writing For?

Daytime TV has finally become the horribly written, cheesy quasi-drama that non-viewers have been calling it for years. Do the writers even have a clue who they’re writing for? Once upon a time, they were writing for housewives who actually had access to a TV (or long ago, a radio) during the day. But with housewives came their kids, kids who have grown up watching soaps and continue to do so now that they’re adults thanks to VCRs (which I still use), DVR and the Soap Net channel. These people are not only housewives but educated professionals, and the filth that the daytime writers are throwing at us is insulting. Okay, fine, they don’t have to actually be a doctor to write for them, but at least hit up wikipedia before throwing out a bunch of terms that people who are actually in the medical field laugh at. Or, better yet, stop recycling storylines and taking them from the other soaps. Didn’t they have to take a creative writing course in college? Did they even go to college?

Let me just say that I am a soap fan. I’ve been watching All My Children since before I can remember, and when my mom was a housewife way back when, we watched General Hospital (which I must admit I’ve stopped watching). Recently I’ve started watching One Life to Live but I’ve only got a few months of that under my belt. For a while there, I thought OLTL was much better than AMC, but lately, I think they both suck.

Okay, fine, the writers want me to believe yet another back-from-the-dead story. I get it. Actors leave, they get promised stuff, they come back. Fine. But am I really supposed to be on board with everything that comes with it? Okay, it made for great drama when All My Children’s Greenlee (Rebecca Buddig) found “the love of her life” Ryan (Cameron Mathison) in bed with her arch enemy, Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and vowed revenge. But then we’re supposed to jump on the Rylee (Ryan and Greenlee) train because Ryan knows what’s best for Greenlee? We’re supposed to swoon over the fact that he kidnapped her, threw her over his shoulder after her having had back surgery, and locked her in a room even though he knows she’s claustrophobic? That he’s in her face every time she turns around promising he’ll stay away? Manipulated her employee into putting them together yet again? Seriously, writers, this is not how you get fans.

And that’s not the only crap they’re showing us on AMC. Not only do we have to deal with insulting cavemen, we also have a college-age spoiled brat and her on-again/off-again dying brother trying to get rid of the wicked stepmother. Colby (Natalie Hall) and J.R. (Jacob Young) are doing nothing but making me feel bad for Annie (Melissa Claire Egan), so soon after the writers tried to get us to hate her for framing her daughter. The writers seriously need to decide if Annie is a good guy or a bad guy and write her that way. I feel really sorry for the girl, which is probably not what I’m supposed to feel. And by the way, can someone either get Brittany Allen (Marissa) acting lessons or write her off the show? The girl needs to learn how to not smile with every line she delivers. Happy, sad, crying, yelling, it’s all smiles for her. Besides, Marissa is probably the most boring character I’ve ever seen. She could have had a great storyline, what with being sold at birth and all, but no, I’m bored to tears by her.

And I’m angered beyond all at the supposed Chief of Police, Jesse Hubbard (Darnell Williams). This guy takes more liberty with the law than Billy the Kid. How many kidnappings has he been in on now, three? There was Kendall, Annie, and I’m not sure if he knew about Erica taking David recently, but I’m pretty sure he just plain wouldn’t care. He constantly talks down to everyone, jumped on the Ryan train, and treats his daughter like a piece of trash. Hmm… that’s right, his 20 year old daughter. But wait, wasn’t he in the “witness protection program” for 20 years? Didn’t take him too long to get over his old family and get a new one. Maybe that new family had a head start, and that’s why he had to “donate his organs.” And constantly shoving Natalia (Shannon Kane) to the backburner for more important things in his life, like Zach (Thorsten Kaye) and David. No wonder the poor kid became a cop, she thought she’d get some attention from her daddy. But all her daddy wants to do is tell her she’s wrong (when she’s right, anyone remember her investigation into Stuart’s death) and throw it in her face that she’s only a rookie. But wait! He can use her to get David, right? Let’s fire the rookie and tell her if she models for Fusion that she can be a detective! Give me a break. Not only are they writing Jesse as a horrible person/father, he’s the most crooked chief of police since Stanley Lowell on OLTL. Makes me sorta miss Lowell. At least you could understand why he was doing what he was doing. With Jesse, it’s really hard to grasp him putting all these people ahead of his family and (lack of) morals.

Let’s hop over to One Life to Live. Can Jessica (Bree Williamson) grow up, please? This is ridiculous. I’m sure if someone woke up thinking it was 11 years ago, they’d be all sorts of confused. And probably all kinds of hurt. But can Jessica please stop stalking Christian (David Fumero)? It’s getting really old. How many times does he have to tell Jessica no? How many times do we have to listen to her whine about her knowing how he feels? Knowing they belong together, knowing… wait, did she turn into Ryan on AMC? Sure sounds like it… Anyway, get over it Jess. I am.

And her brother Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) needs to get off my screen, too. Let’s face it, the guy can’t act. He portrays Rex as nothing more than a Neanderthal cartoon. His facial expressions are too over the top for stage acting, let alone television. And the character really needs to get over himself and accept some blame. All he can ever do is accuse and blame everything on everyone else, nothing is ever his fault. He seems to find joy in rubbing people’s faces in their mistakes, although he himself has never made one. He’s got no respect for anyone except maybe Bo, but even that is debatable. Maybe John-Paul should move over to Disney channel. The kids really go crazy for the over-emphasized faces and running into tables stuff.

This is quite refreshing! I usually post on the Soap Central boards, and we get yelled at and posts deleted if we dare speak ill of an actor. We can’t attack them or hurt their feelings. Don’t get me wrong, the Soap Central boards are great, fun, and I love them, but some of the moderators are way up on high horses. Besides, if the actors are gonna get their feelings hurt, they can either not read the boards, or deal with it. It’s called life. If you suck, you’re gonna get called out on it. But then, this is the age of the trophies where everyone is a winner, which is a subject for another day.

And so I come to my final point of daytime writers: Kish! Kish is what viewers have nicknamed the couple of Kyle and Fish (Brett Claywell and Scott Evans). The Kish storyline is probably the only one that was well-written. In fact, I think it’s the best storyline on a soap since Michael Cambius invaded Pine Valley (wrong show, I know, just sayin’…) Viewers have fallen in love with Kish, especially since Fish finally came out of the closet at the mass gay wedding, defending against the gay bashers while he was supposed to be keeping order. But no. We finally get a great storyline, one that can continue to be great, with incredible actors, and they get fired. Click here and here and here for all the details. I’m just super disappointed. The greatest storyline of our generation and it’s gone. They really don’t care who they’re writing for, as long as they’re getting that fat paycheck.

Mandy’s Musings is a somewhat-regular column of Generation Gossip. Happy Gossiping!

Royal Rant: What Happened to Teen Dramas?

Remember the original 90210? Me too, Grew up watching it, the storylines may have been a bit contrived but you went along with it. When Brenda's parents thought she shoplifted, you knew that mama and papa Walsh would find out the truth within the hour, so you sat back and enjoyed the ride. In todays version of 90210 Brenda would have shoplifted and not only that but she would be a kleptomaniac. In their bid to be shocking, producers of teen shows have lost their way.

Sex used to be a big deal, not just a plot point. When Brenda decided to have sex with Dylan on the original 90210, it played out for weeks, and every single beat was played in the story. In todays teen dramas the story is much different, I can't think of one character is a virgin. If they were that was quickly lost for a quick plot that is forgotten fairly quickly. Most of the dramas advertise the sex, Gossip Girl even went as far as to promote a menage a toi, which had no lasting effects on the show. When Joey Potter and Pacey Witter had sex for the first time on Dawsons Creek the end result was four episodes later, she thought she may be pregnant.

Maybe the reason the new crop of shows don't deal with that issue (except for Secret Life of An American Teenager) is that the actress' are way to thin. To many people this may have been a problem back in the day too, but from rewatching 4 of the 6 seasons of Dawsons Creek and the first few episodes of 90210, the girls then looked to be a healthy weight. This new crop of girls look like twigs who would break if any man or woman touches them. Half the time I'm not invested in the story because I'm busy making a cheeseburge to give to each of these actress' (thats a rant for another day I suppose)

Speaking of the way the actors look, can we please get a real life teenager here? I know that in the original set of teen dramas the actors were much older than their characters but it really sticks out with this group. Trevor Donovan is cute, slightly talented but he is no Luke Perry. They should have hired him to play a teacher who has an affair with a student. He looks so out of place working with the actors that sorta look like they could still be in high school.

Writers of the new crop of teen dramas, please feel free to use these ideas. Back in the day (this is how I know I've officially crossed the line over to old) the shows wove in socially relevant issues. Kelly Taylor, from the original 90210 was addicted to diet pills but it didn't come out in one episode, they built it and people flocked when Kelly passed out in the Peach Pit bathroom. Dawsons Creek took on student/teacher affairs with Miss Jacobs and Pacey. It was the first time a tv show, especially one aimed at teens took this issue on. They also tackled the effects of a parent cheating and divorce, among many more. The new shows could take a lesson from their predecessors.  What if one of the shows took on a gay couple who were denied going to prom? Have characters on both sides of the fence, present a fair and balanced, entertaining story. It could almost be an umbrella story, You have the gay couple, then you can have the most popular couple split on whether or not the gay couple should be allowed to go. Stretch it out for a few episodes we won't mind. Or the threat of violence at school is always prevalent. Have a character be picked on, feel isolated then one day snap and plan to kill his tormentors. Difficult to handle and probably watch yes, but maybe just maybe you can shed some light on why these tragedies happen.

If you are going to tell a social story please use the old English teacher saying: "Show us, don't tell us." We know drugs are bad already. Give teens and the older audience some credit. Have the heroine start taking pain pills because she was in bad car accident (no manslaughter needed for an interesting story), then as tome goes on and she feels better she notices that she doesn't want to stop taking them. Show the first high being the best, then descend her down that dark ugly path. Since she's your heroine you can put her in pretty much every story without much complaint.

Many, many writers can't write a good social issue story. That's fine, not every show needs to do them but make up for it. Tell entertaining stories, look at classic movies like Cruel Intentions for help with plotlines. Yes yes Cruel Intentions is a remake of Dangerous Liasons but the basic story could still work. Go back and frame your stories against Shakespearean plays like Romeo and Juliet ect.

The teen drama genre can make a comeback and be classic once again but its going to take brave, talented writers to reinvigorate it. As the famous movie saying goes "If You Build It They Will Come."

He confused the Greens


Before making an appearance on a talk show, guests wait in a designated area known as the green room. A certain well-known actor has been making the rounds of talk shows recently to promote his film. For one such show, he decided to bring his own green to the green room. A little herbal refreshment, to be more specific. While it was rather surprising that he would light up in a strictly No Smoking area, what was even more surprising was the fact that he was doing it before one of those early morning talk shows. We’ve since heard that it is not unusual for him to spark up first thing in the morning and to keep the relaxation going all day and all night. No one should be surprised if he ends up in rehab this year.

"Reverse" Diet

Blind Gossip

There is a certain famous television actress on a popular show who is thin even by the most subjective standards. Too bad she’s not as secure as you would think. During a recent wardrobe fitting, she peppered the stylists with questions about other female actors. She quizzed them about how her body compared to theirs: “What about X?” “Is she thinner than me? “How much does she weigh?” “How does my body compare to hers?” She even writes down the answers. However, her obsession with her relative thinness (especially to her perceived rivals) doesn’t stop there. She is currently doing what she calls her “Reverse Diet”. She eats her catered meals and then excuses herself to  dispose of her meals in a reverse manner.

She doesn't want to be Blind Sided


This famous television actress, with a much less famous fiancĂ© is gorgeous and has it all which is why you’d think she’d be more secure than she is. Her fiancĂ© recently added an old girlfriend on facebook and was excited to reconnect. The actress allegedly hired a team to research this girl, (background checks, searches, etc.) and to find out everything she could about her. She is secretly monitoring their interaction online (although so far she’s come up with nothing scandalous). She has even sent the old flame text messages from her boyfriend’s phone to ‘test’ her and gauge her reaction. We hear she is becoming obsessed and blind with jealousy, even though it seems he is not interested in the ex other than in catching up. Not Kristen Bell.

He has dated lots of actresses in the past. One is an A list television actress while the other is a B list movie actress. He gave it to the A lister, but neither of the B listers.

It could happen to anyone


This spoiled diva B list movie actress with A list name recognition was on a drug and booze binge last weekend. Out of control. She had gone to see a movie and was boozing and snorting during the entire movie. Afterwards she did pass her keys to the friend she was with. They made their way to the car, but the key would not work. Thinking there was something wrong with the remote, they tried the actual key. It didn't work. Our actress then took off her heel and smashed the drivers side window until it broke. It was only then they realized they had been trying to get into the wrong car. Security and then the police and then the owner came. Our actress avoided going to jail by passing over some cash, a photo and an autograph. If she had been arrested, the coke would have probably put her wholesome image to the test.

He Stanks


One big star on the set of this film is spending as little time with their co-star as possible. You see, Star 1 is a control freak, while Star 2 has really poor hygiene. When not wearing clothes directly provided by wardrobe, Star 2 positively reeks. He does buy clothes, but he tends to wear them – without washing them – until they are completely soiled or ripe or ruined. Then he throws them away, buys a new set, and repeats the cycle. No wonder Star 1 practically runs the other way when they see him coming.

This actress is C list through and through. She does movies and has been in some huge ones and she has done television and been in a huge series. Not the star, but not just a one line thing either. You would recognize her but probably wouldn’t know her name. Anyway, last week she called the fire department to her home. An actual home because she has family money. She told the department that someone had dropped a cigarette in the sofa and it caught on fire. When the results didn’t match what she claimed, she finally admitted she and two friends had been freebasing coke and that is what torched almost her entire living room

This aging celeb had a lot of work done, so much so it would rival the likes of Heidi Montag. The problem is, even though this celeb is being photographed and showing off the work, they are EXTREMELY unhappy about it. You wouldn’t know it because the celeb can’t show a decent emotion. The plan to fix it entails getting even more work done, and we suspect the celeb will be unrecognizable when it’s all over. Not Melanie Griffith.

Michael Ausiello Blind Item

Michael Ausiello

You know how a lot of times I’ll tease a shocking plot twist in a blind item, and then, when said twist actually occurs, you’re like, “Oh, yeah, I shoulda seen it comin’”? This is not one of those times. Completely out of the blue, someone on a popular one-hour drama is gonna turn up preggers in the season finale!

Your clues: It’s a series that gets a lot of ink in this column — and pretty much has to, as its rabid following is one of the scariest most enthusiastic around. And did I mention that the character who is expecting is perhaps the last one you’d expect to be? As a result, I would imagine watercooler speculation about the babydaddy to go on at a fever pitch right up until the show’s fall comeback.
Yes, it’s that shocking.

So guesses as to the mother — and surprise father? The show? Whatcha got? Sound off below. And oh, since I may be narrowing down the possible candidates on Twitter later this week, you know you’d best be following me via @ewausiellofiles.

He wants the best of both worlds


There is an actor who has been in the business for a long time, but finally hit popularity.  He seems to be adapting well to all of the fame and the women he has been required to be seen with.  And while everyone wonders what team he plays for, no one would ever guess.  He doesn't like women he doesn't like men, he like them both in one.  Yup, he launches of for men who have been nipped and tucked into becoming women, but left their twigs and berries.  Seems he likes to have the best of both worlds.

This actress has made it impossible on the set of her show.  I told you about her and her female "roommate" hooking up before.  This actress has turned into a love sick fool and follows her ex-roomie all over the set and has become very clingy.  Her co-stars are trying to help her out, but her ex is going to the big names and telling them that lovesick girl is ruining her performance and if they want her to stay then they need to write out her stalker ex.  Producers and writers are torn, they need the stalker to stay.  Looks like we might see a cat fight after all.

Ted C Blind Item

Ted C Blind

Jeez, what hath Jesse James wrought, huh? Are quasi-good-looking TV stars who behave badly suddenly the norm here in Hollywood?

Sure looks that way.

Because Moisty Mohr, a man never known for his looks so much as his ratings, is pulling some of the skuzziest stuff around these days! If you haven't just eaten lunch, proceed, by all means:

There's a certain store in town that sells women's clothing and is hot, hot, hot—tons of stars go there. It's a stylin' joint where the chicks go to get their chic on. So, of course, Moisty, who's always with one slinky babe or another (though he pretends he dates only one at a time—total lie), stopped into said shop recently.

"He came it with a bunch of gals," says an eyewitness. "They were just dripping all over him, which was really funny, as he's not all that much to look at."

What's even more hysterical (or pathetic, your choice) is that Moisty couldn't wait to have his way with his harem, so he took them into a changing room! And that area does not have floor-to-ceiling doors, mind you.

So, everybody in the store heard everything. And considering the fact that there were at least two women getting serviced by Moisty, the audio factor was not low. Consider it as amped as Mohr's boob-tube persona!

Wow. Is this like when short men start acting like total bitches, just to assert themselves? Dog-faced celeb finds the need to show he's got what it takes to please the ladies—and he wants everybody to know it?

Fine. Say the word, Moisty, your secret's out!

Rainbow come out...or be outed

You all remember Rainbow Dark and how much of a dick I think he is.  He completely used a friend of mine named Justin Case all while stringing on his girlfriend Sunshine to keep up appearances. After their last tryst, JC had recorded a snippet of RC on his cell and I had hoped he would do something productive with it.

However while I was away, RD wormed his way back into JC's bed and heart. And once again as JC is basking in the reunion sunlight, RD is doing what he does best.

Over the weekend, RD went out on the town and left JC and Sunshine both at home.  While JC sat by the phone waiting for it to ring, Sunshine took matters into her own hands.  She has been dropping the engagement word lately and has every intention making it happen.  She tracked him down to and went to get him.  She found him alright, in the corner with two boys on their knees in front of him.  Poor girl....she had a clue but seeing it rocked her sweet little world.

When he came home 2 days later, she dropped the bombshell.  She demanded he stop and hired him a new assistant that she knows would keep an eye on him.  She also made him sign a contract saying that if she caught him with another man, she got two million dollars. Yes, 2.  She has been in this for the long haul and she wants what she thinks she deserves.  Miss Sunshine also bought herself an engagement ring and informed RD they will be getting married within the next year.  As his balls sat in her vice, he just smiled and nodded.

Of course once again, he called JC and broke his heart again.  RD doesn't realize that he had two time bombs ready to blow.  He may have silenced one, but the other is still ticking away.
