Your specific kinks/fetishes/turn ons

Not to wander too far into the weeds of out there kinks or things that are unacceptable to society....

I'm thinking more along the lines of something a friend of mine was into....he really had a fetish for guys who were suit and tie types and wore black dress socks. If he was with a guy and he took off the guy's dress shoes to find those sheer sort of black dress socks underneath, he'd literally blow his load right there.

So is there something very specific that turns you on? What is the specific thing? Again, nothing too out there, nothing illegal, thank you....

(Photo for illustrative purposes.....black socks are not my thing, personally)

Carroll Baker doesn't bring charisma to mysterious "Sylvia" 1965

My fun take on birthday girl Carroll Baker as "Sylvia." This 1965 melodrama plays like a cross between "Laura" & "Butterfield 8." Detective George Maharis is hired to find out if wealthy Peter Lawford's fiancee, Carroll of the title role, has any skeletons in her closet. Well, natch! Maharis' Mac talks to characters in her past, & he instantly falls in love with her. They all rave about her, but one problem: Sylvia was a hooker. Anyhoo, a veteran cast of all-stars make up for the lackluster leads, who are at least very attractive! Hokey but very entertaining. My look at "Sylvia."

Underrated '90s Movies: Hidden Gems You Need to Watch!

Which underrated '90s movies do you think deserve to be seen now? These are my recommendations:

1. **"Grosse Pointe Blank" (1997):** This dark comedy starring John Cusack as a hitman returning to his high school reunion blends humor, action, and romance perfectly.

2. **"The Iron Giant" (1999):** An animated masterpiece that was critically acclaimed but underperformed at the box office.

3. **"The Last Seduction" (1994):** Linda Fiorentino's performance as a femme fatale in this neo-noir thriller is legendary.

4. **"Galaxy Quest" (1999):** This sci-fi comedy brilliantly parodies Star Trek and fandom culture. Tim Allen, Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver are great together.

5. **"Dark City" (1998):** This visually stunning sci-fi noir was overshadowed by "The Matrix" but offers a unique story.

Seattle museum staff walk out objecting antisemitism exhibit isn't pro-Palestenian

The Wing Luke Museum in Seattle has been forced to close after nearly 30 staffers, about half of the museum's workforce, walked out in protest at its new 'Confronting Hate Together' exhibit. The walkout meant the tourist had no other option but to close.

The staffers are unhappy with the type of language used in the exhibit claiming parts of it 'conflate anti-Zionism with antisemitism.'

The workers walked off the job on opening day of the exhibit, forcing the museum to close. They are vowing to remain on strike until their demands are met and the displays are changed.

The disgruntled staffers, who work at the only pan-Asian art and history museum in the United States, wrote, 'Zionism has no place in our communities and being anti-Zionist goes hand in hand with our own liberation as AA/NHPI. 𝑶𝒖𝒓 𝒔𝒐𝒍𝒊𝒅𝒂𝒓𝒊𝒕𝒚 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝑷𝒂𝒍𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒆 𝒔𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒃𝒆 𝒓𝒆𝒇𝒍𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒆𝒅 𝒊𝒏 𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝑨𝑨/𝑵𝑯𝑷𝑰 𝒊𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒕𝒖𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔.'

The 26 striking workers are now demanding the removal of any language from the exhibit that attempts to frame Palestinian liberation and anti-Zionism as antisemitism.

They are also calling for the museum to acknowledge its 'limited perspectives', conduct a community review, and center voices and perspectives that align with the museum's mission and values,' the group wrote on social media.

The exhibit had been designed to explore hate against Asian American, Native American, and Pacific Islander communities, as well as black and Jewish communities.

It was supposed to run from Wednesday through June 30, according to the museum's website.

One panel in particular from the Jewish Historical Society said: 'Today, antisemitism is often disguised as anti-Zionism' - but such a view is a point of contention for the striking staffers, who argue that it conveys Zionist perspectives.

'What is happening in Palestine directly reflects violent colonization and imperialism that has and continues to impact Asian American, Native American and Pacific Islander (AA/NHP) diaspora for generations,' the disgruntled workers wrote online.

The group raised concerns that the exhibit's portrayal of Zionism contradicts the museum's purpose of addressing the impacts of colonization and imperialism on AA/NHPI diaspora communities.

Following the staff walkout, the museum issued a statement in support of its employees, acknowledging their right to express their beliefs and engage in dialogue.

'Members of Wing Luke Museum's staff held a respectful walk-out in protest of content on display in a new exhibit,' the museum said.

'As an organization rooted in dialogue, we acknowledge and support the right of our staff to express their beliefs and personal truths and to this end, we are holding space for a careful and thoughtful process of listening with intent to hear multiple perspectives in pursuit of a mutual way forward.

Telegraph UK Opinion Piece: "It's Time To Bring Prince Harry Home"

These days, even Tories like myself are finding it hard to defend the hereditary principle. Personally, I have no taste for republicanism, something which is due to my incapacity for envy. That emotion or weakness is quite absent from my makeup.

In the face of other peoples’ good fortune, I am as inert as a deaf person at a recital. But a Starmer government will find the fact that the Royal Family has more money and more privilege than the rest of us interesting.

I increasingly feel that the future of the Royal Family may depend on its ability to cheer the public and what it lacks now is the requisite joyfulness.

The King and the Princess of Wales are effectively hors de combat, poor Camilla is 76, life bears heavily on William, and no one fancies a Pizza Express.

The Windsors are in grave need of some pizazz. Readers may succumb to the screaming abdabs, but the royal left standing who has most star power is Harry. It is easy to blame him and his puerile book for the continuing rift with his father and brother, but some courtiers of my acquaintance hold William equally liable.

Recently, I spoke to a former palace official who used to work for both princes before the good times stopped rolling. “There is a public misconception about William and Harry,” he told me. “It is William who was often the difficult one, and it is William who is preventing his father from having a proper reconciliation with Harry.” He continued, “This isn’t helpful at a point in time when the country would be buoyed up by seeing them together again, as would the King.”

It wasn’t helpful last week when the only family member to greet Harry with warmth was Earl Spencer. When it comes to his brother, William’s disgruntlement can at times seem mildly pathological.

I do not think there is any superior rationality in being discontented with one’s relatives. Take myself. My mother once sold disobliging stories about me to the tabloids, but after an impulse to do her bodily harm, I forgave her.

Yet where William is concerned, Byronic unhappiness has taken hold. I realise Harry has at times taken joy out of William’s life, and that he and Meghan can be a cause of irritation. It remains tempting to call the pair one trick phoneys. But isn’t that what most royalling is all about? Phoney good will and faked enjoyment? Moreover, the Sussexes have youth and glamour, and the young regard them as a religion with no dilution of agnosticism.

To many, Charles and William’s continued coldness towards Harry is beginning to look inhuman. It is important to remember that the Royal Family is a microcosm for every family in Britain, and that a divided family, like a divided political party, has an intrinsic weakness.

FURIOSA Box Office

This one I think is going to make Hollywood nervous. I think this one will miss its $40 million tracking (which is not even very good, since Fury Road opened to $45 million a decade ago ).

The reason: Two hour 28 minute runtime. This should have been under two hours, maybe even 90 minutes.

I think Miller should have just made another sequel, there’s really not a lot of need-to-know about Furiosa’s past. The character was wafer thin. Do you care how she lost the arm?

Prediction: $34 million opening, $80 million domestic run, $180 million worldwide.

(Mad Max Fury Road: 45 million domestic opening, 153 million domestic run, $380 million worldwide)

Diva Jason Alexander almost quit "Seinfeld" because he wasn't getting enough screen time

"Seinfeld" could have looked very different if one of the main stars followed through on his threat to leave the hit show.

Michael Richards, who appeared on the show as Kramer, revealed that Jason Alexander, who played George Costanza, nearly quit the show after "The Pen" episode.

Neither Alexander nor Richards appeared in that episode, as Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) and Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) pay a visit to Jerry's parents in Florida.

Page Six obtained an excerpt of Richards' upcoming memoir, "Entrances and Exits," where he says he took not being on-screen with "equanimity," but says Alexander had a different approach.

"Jason threatens to quit after learning that he’s also not in the episode. He’s furious," Richards wrote in his memoir, according to the outlet.

Richards was able to sympathize with Alexander.

"Jason came onto the show with the most confidence of anyone," Richards wrote, Page Six reported. "He had won a Tony Award on the New York stage, not an insignificant achievement, and until the table read for ‘The Pen,’ he has assumed that ‘Seinfeld’ is a buddy show, starring him and Jerry."

He continued, "But this business breeds both massive egos and incredible insecurity, and this episode is one of those ego-jarring wakeup calls."

Alexander confirmed Richards' claims in 2017. He told Access Hollywood at the time that he had snapped at Larry David, the lead writer for the sitcom, and threatened to leave the show.

Alexander said he had told David, "If you do that again, do it permanently … if you don't need me here every week, I'd just as soon go back home and do what I was doing."

"Thank God he didn’t say ‘Take a hike,’ because I would have had no life and no career," Alexander emphasized at the time.

Reps for Alexander did not have any additional comment.

Low-trust voters (especially young people of color) are drifting towards the right

“Voters with low levels of trust in society and the political system are shifting rightward. Donald Trump redefined the GOP in the eyes of many, associating the party with a paranoid vision of American life and a populist contempt for the nation’s political system. In response, Democrats rallied to the defense of America’s greatness, norms, and institutions. As the parties polarized on the question of whether America was “already great,” voters with high levels of social trust and confidence in the political system became more Democratic, while those with low social trust and little faith in the government became more Republican.“

This makes sense. Successful Democratic Presidents have couched their arguments for voting for them to make a change to the system, not uphold it. That is the essence of conservativism.

Harrison Butker reaffirms what he said in his Benedictine College commencement speech

Butker is on the board of the Regina Caeli Academy in Nashville, he spoke at their annual Courage Under Fire Gala on Friday night (5/24/2024). Rick Santorum, Matt Walsh, and Candace Owens were also in attendance.

[quote]“If it wasn’t clear that the timeless Catholic values are hated by many, it is now,”

[…]

[quote]“Over the past few days, my beliefs, or what people think I believe, have been the focus of countless discussions around the globe,”

[quote]“At the outset, many people expressed a shocking level of hate. But as the days went on, even those who disagreed with my viewpoints shared their support for my freedom of religion,”

[quote]Butker reaffirmed his commitment to his Catholic faith, saying, “Our love for Jesus and thus our desire to speak out should never be outweighed by the longing of our fallen nature to be loved by the world.”

[quote]During his speech, Butker referred to Saint Daniel, the biblical prophet who was thrown into a lion’s den for committing to prayer to God, despite a law that condemned worshipers to death.

[quote]”I can’t help but tremble at the thought of the courage many saints have shown in their lives,” Butker said.

[quote]Daniel was spared by God due to his commitment to faith, according to the Old Testament.

[quote]“Would I be so bold if the repercussion was what Daniel faced in being fed to lions? In reality, any courage I’ve shown will lead to some small suffering. And it will lead to some people maybe never liking me, but that could be God’s will,”

*Butker has previously mentioned his desire to be a saint.

I don’t begrudge anyone their right to freedom of speech, but Butker’s words echo Project 2025. His holding company, MDKeller, is associated with the Heritage Foundation, the Federalist Society, the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Leonine Forum, and the Claremont Institute.

Below Deck Season 11 - Grenada

I'm really loving it.

Jared the Bosun is hilarious and weird. He seems stoned most of the time.

Fraser is being an absolute cunt this season. What crawled up his tight ass? And why does he keep calling himself "Mother?"

At first I didn't like Cat, but after hearing her story, I feel bad for her. I'm almost forced to like her.

Barbie is a feisty Latina firecracker.

Not sure what's the trip with Xandi, but she's just odd.

Sunny is cute. She and Ben would make a nice couple, if Ben didn't keep throwing her under the bus.

Kyle is cute too. His Irish accent makes him better looking than he actually is, though.

Speaking of Kyle and Ben, I am LOVING the shots in their cabin, where they keep exposing their bare asses to each other (and us)! On the show, Ben comes across as a total womanizer, but I swear, something about him is very gay. I especially loved the scene where he was rubbing lotion all over Kyle's back - all the way down to his exposed ass!

And the French Chef. He's tres gay, even though he is trying to pretend that he's straight.

Black Sails (2014-2017)--I know I'm late to the party, but did anyone watch this?

I just recently re-read "Treasure Island," and enjoyed it so much I'm watching "Black Sails," which I missed when it was first out because it was on Starz (and so hard to access) and because I did not like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I have such mixed feelings about it. There seems to be a secret gym and shower and laundromat hidden in the pirate ship because most of the pirates are so well built and have clean hair and clean clothing, so that seems weird. And the lead woman who plays the pirates' fence looks like Keira Knightley and wears 21st-c. make-up. But the stories are pretty harrowing, and the sets are incredible. There's lots of eye candy, too (thanks to the well built actors playing sailors), especially the guy who plays Long John Silver. The lead is Toby Stephens and he's terrific.

Pope Francis Calls us FAGS

Pope Francis allegedly told Italian bishops to not permit gay men to train for the priesthood, with two Italian newspapers claiming that the 87-year-old pontiff made a homophobic slur in a closed-door meeting last week.

Citing sources from inside the meeting, the Corriere della Sera and La Repubblica newspapers reported Monday that the Pope had made the comments while meeting with Italian bishops on May 20.

The newspaper articles, which were translated from Italian, claimed the Pope had said there is “frociaggine” – which translates in English to “faggotry” – in some of the seminaries.

The remarks took place in the context of proposals from the Italian bishops to amend guidelines on candidates to seminaries.

The Vatican ruled in 2005 that the church cannot allow the ordination of men who are actively gay or have “deep-seated” homosexual tendencies. In 2016, Francis upheld this ruling.

Two years later he told the Italian bishops not to accept gay candidates for the priesthood.

During his pontificate, the Pope has sought to offer a more welcoming approach to LGBTQ+ Catholics, saying “who am I to judge?” when asked about gay priests, and has also offered the possibility that priests could offer informal blessings for same-sex couples.

The Corriere della Sera newspaper stated that the Argentine pope, who speaks Italian as a second language, may not have been aware of how offensive his language was, adding that the remark was greeted with incredulous laughter by the bishops.

A source close to the Pope told CNN that it could also be understood as there is a “gay climate” in the seminaries.

There is no official transcript of the comments due to the nature of the closed-door meeting.

CNN has reached out to the Vatican to request comment on whether the Pope used the term. They have not yet responded.

Troy Aikman and His Wife Catherine "Capa" Mooty are Officially Divorced

Football legend Troy Aikman and his ex-wife Catherine "Capa" Mooty are officially divorced, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

The news comes nearly two months after Aikman, 56, was seen in the Italian Riviera with a new girlfriend.

"They were very much into each other," an insider tells PEOPLE of Aikman and his new flame, who were walking around Capri, Italy, with their arms around each other on June 9. "They were dressed casually in workout clothes, and trying to avoid the crowds, but they were definitely happy and enjoying each other's company."

Aikman and Mooty — who is the co-owner of Luxeliner, a mobile shopping service — got married in 2017. The football legend proposed after a year of dating during a vacation in Lake Como, Italy.

“June 2, 2017 – A special day as I proposed to the love of my life,” the Fox lead NFL game analyst said at the time.

Prior to marrying Mooty, Aikman was wed to former Cowboys publicist Rhonda Worthey, with whom he shares two daughters: Alexa Marie, 21, and Jordan Ashley, 22. Mooty has two sons from a previous relationship.

A second source tells PEOPLE that the split hasn't affected their relationship with each other's children. "They're still close with each other's kids," the source says.

Last year, the former quarterback opened up to PEOPLE about the launch of his low-calorie, low-carb beer called EIGHT, named for his former jersey number.

"Health and wellness are something that's really important to me, and so I'm very meticulous about what I put in my body," he told PEOPLE. "I wanted to make a beer that didn't compromise all of the hard work and effort that was put in during the week."

He added, "It took some time to just get it right. It's not an easy beer to make. I didn't realize that this category is one of the toughest to brew, but I'm real proud of the end result."

Also, why does Bea get to sing the whole first part of the song by herself, and the other three just get a line or two? Poor Rue just gets a few words.

Hillary Clinton Has Some Tough Words for Democrats and women

Hillary Clinton had some tough words for her fellow Democrats for their failure to protect abortion rights in the years leading up to Roe v. Wade being overturned by the Supreme Court.

In an interview with The New York Times, Clinton, 76, discussed her forthcoming book, "The Fall of Roe: The Rise of a New America" and what she believed a second Trump administration will look like.

The former Democratic presidential candidate accused her party of being too complacent by underestimating the formidable strength of the pro-life movement in the lead-up to the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, when the Supreme Court overturned nearly 50 years of legalized abortion at the federal level.

"We didn’t take it seriously, and we didn’t understand the threat," Clinton said. "Most Democrats, most Americans, did not realize we are in an existential struggle for the future of this country."

Clinton argued that Democrats failed to pass legislation codifying abortion rights into federal law — even when they controlled the Senate — because they could not fathom that abortion rights would ever be at risk.

Clinton said she gave the right credit for never giving up. She lamented that Democrats lacked the organization and funding for institutions like The Federalist Society to counter the right’s influence.

"[The right is] relentless. You know, they take a loss, they get back up, they regroup, they raise more money," Clinton said. "It’s tremendously impressive the way that they operate. And we have nothing like it on our side."

Clinton said she was dismissed as alarmist when she predicted in 2016, that a Trump presidency would lead to abortion rights being overturned. She predicted that many would dismiss her again this election cycle, which she described as "existential."

"I mean, if we don’t make the right decision in this election in our country, we may never have another actual election," Clinton said. "I will put that out there because I believe it. And if we no longer have another actual election, we will be governed by a small minority of right-wing forces that are well organized and well-funded and are getting exactly what they want in terms of turning the clock back on women."

UN Security Council to hold emergency meeting after Israel bombs refugee encampment on Sunday

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has condemned a deadly Israeli airstrike that killed dozens of people in Rafah, southern Gaza. The strike on Sunday prompted international condemnation. Israel said the incident was being investigated. "I condemn Israel's actions which killed scores of innocent civilians who were only seeking shelter from this deadly conflict," Guterres said in a post on the platform X, formerly Twitter. "There is no safe place in Gaza. The horror must stop."

The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, has said around a million people have fled the southern Gaza city of Rafah since Israel stepped up its offensive there in the past three weeks. "This happened with nowhere safe to go & amidst bombardments, lack of food & water, piles of waste & unsuitable living conditions," the agency wrote on X, formerly Twitter. "Day after day, providing assistance & protection becomes nearly impossible," it added.

Israel has pushed ahead with its offensive despite a legally binding order by the International Court of Justice to "immediately halt its military offensive in Rafah." The court characterized the humanitarian situation in Gaza as "disastrous" and "catastrophic."

Christian Nationalism

[quote] “Christian nationalism” is not the liberal version of the slur “woke.” It’s more like the term “fascist.” Not only does it describe something very real, but something that remains a very present threat, one that is overrunning Oklahoma politics, and potentially the rest of the country.

[quote] ...We define it as an ideology that idealizes and advocates a fusion of American civic life with a particular kind of “Christianity.” I use “Christianity” in quotes there because the Christianity involved isn’t theological; it’s ethno-cultural. It’s “Christianity” as code, shorthand for “people like us,” and that usually means “Anglo European ethnicity, born in the USA, politically conservative.” Christian nationalism is an ideology that envisions that group as America’s founders and rightful leaders. It seeks to institutionalize their privilege politically.

Why would someone who is smart enough to get into med school fake a cancer diagnosis? And why would the victim in this case, also a doctor, be dumb enough to hand over $160, 000 to a fraud?

Netanyahu says deadly Israeli strike in Rafah was the result of a 'tragic mistake'

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that a “tragic mistake” was made in an Israeli strike in the southern Gaza city of Rafah that set fire to a camp housing displaced Palestinians and, according to local officials, killed at least 45 people.

The strike only added to the surging international criticism Israel has faced over its war with Hamas, with even its closest allies expressing outrage at civilian deaths. Israel insists it adheres to international law even as it faces scrutiny in the world’s top courts, one of which last week demanded that it halt the offensive in Rafah.

Netanyahu did not elaborate on the error. Israel's military initially said it had carried out a precise airstrike on a Hamas compound, killing two senior militants. As details of the strike and fire emerged, the military said it had opened an investigation into the deaths of civilians.

Sunday night's attack, which appeared to be one of the war’s deadliest, helped push the overall Palestinian death toll in the war above 36,000, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between fighters and noncombatants in its tally.

“Despite our utmost efforts not to harm innocent civilians, last night there was a tragic mistake,” Netanyahu said Monday in an address to Israel’s parliament. “We are investigating the incident and will obtain a conclusion because this is our policy.”

What Books Are You Reading In 2024? Part 1

As midnight ticks around and the fireworks burst in the skies of my hometown, it’s time for the first reading thread of the New Year, where DataLounge friends share what they are reading, good or bad. Short stories etc are welcome.

As per the previous thread, I am still listening to Moby Dick, but not during chemotherapy, there are too many interruptions and I am enjoying the story far too much for stopping and starting. So it’s on my commute.

I wanted a big, easy to read saga to read over the holidays so I am rereading Gone With The Wind for the first time since childhood. Scarlett has less of Vivien Leigh’s devious intelligence, and Melanie isn’t a beatific and sickly sweet as per Olivia de Havilland but guileless, plucky and almost immature.

Cannes Security Guard Involved in the Kelly Rowland Incident Does It AGAIN!

It appears that the security guard who had a viral heated exchange with Kelly Rowland on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival is back in the news.

Footage circulating on social media seemingly showed the female security guard trying to move Dominican actress Massiel Taveras along the Palais des Festivals staircase, which eventually led to Taveras pushing the guard.

The video posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) showed Taveras going up the red carpet in a white gown that featured a long train with what appeared to be the likeness of Jesus printed on it. The security guard could be seen gesturing to Taveras to move along the carpet after she unfolded the train of her dress.

The actress could then be seen exchanging words with the security guard as the guard kept her arm up, trying to corral her up the stairs. As Taveras got to the stop and tried to fan out the train of her dress, she could be seen pushing the security guard’s arm away.

She then waved at fans before the security guard put her arm back up and tried to get her to move on from the carpet. Taveras then appeared to push her and her arm away before heatedly speaking to her once again.

Angelina Jolie alleges ‘history’ of Brad Pitt’s physical abuse prior to 2016 plane ride

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s fight over the French winery they once owned together is coming to a head and reigniting older conflicts, as new legal documents allege a “history of physical abuse of Jolie” on the part of Pitt prior to their fateful plane ride in 2016.

On Thursday, Jolie filed a motion with the Los Angeles Superior Court, a copy of which CNN has obtained, wherein she claims that she attempted to sell Pitt her stake in the Miraval winery and that their negotiations ultimately broke down after Pitt conditioned the sale on Jolie signing an NDA that “prohibited Jolie from speaking (other than in court) about Pitt’s abuse of Jolie and their children by attempting to tie Pitt’s personal reputation to Miraval’s business.”

This week’s new filing stems from Pitt’s 2022 lawsuit, in which he claimed that he and Jolie had an agreement that neither would sell their stake in the winery without the other’s consent. In a June 2023 filing, he alleged that Jolie’s sale of her stake in the winery was “vindictive” after an “adverse custody ruling.”

Jolie also claims in Thursday’s filing that Pitt’s “history of physical abuse of Jolie started well before the family’s September 2016 plane trip from France to Los Angeles,” but does not go into further detail about the alleged prior abuse.

“At trial, Jolie will prove through testimony, emails, photographs, and other evidence why Pitt was so concerned about his own misconduct that he blew up his own deal to purchase Jolie’s interest in Miraval because she refused to agree to his new, expansive NDA,” the filing reads.

Jolie claims in the filing on Thursday that she agreed to sign an NDA that was “limited to not disparaging Miraval’s wine business” as part of her initial deal to sell Pitt her stake in the winery, which they were close to finalizing at the time.

Pitt had previously claimed in his June 2023 amended complaint that after Jolie would not agree to sign his NDA, she proposed an even broader NDA that “would have provided that “[o]ther than in court pleadings or testimony, neither party shall directly or through a party’s representatives make in a public forum any derogatory remark about the other party.”

“Mr. Pitt refused to purchase Ms. Jolie’s interest when she would not be silenced by his NDA. By refusing to buy her interest but then suing her, Mr. Pitt put directly at issue why that NDA was so important to him and what he hoped it would bury: his abuse of Ms. Jolie and their family,” Paul Murphy, Jolie’s attorney, told CNN in a statement on Thursday. “After eight months of delays, this motion asks the Court to force Mr. Pitt to finally produce that evidence.”

Jolie never ended up pressing charges against Pitt in relation to the 2016 altercation, according to the filing, because she believed “the best course was for Pitt to accept responsibility and help the family recover from the post-traumatic stress he caused.”

CNN previously reported that Pitt was not arrested or charged in connection with the 2016 incident after the FBI completed its investigation, and a representative for Pitt disputed Jolie’s account of that incident included in an October 2022 filing. Pitt’s representative said in a statement to CNN at the time that “Brad has accepted responsibility for what he did but will not for things he didn’t do.”

In October 2021, Jolie sold her half of the winery to Tenute del Mondo, a subsidiary of Stoli Group, controlled by Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler.

The ongoing legal proceedings and “Pitt’s unyielding attempts to control and punish Jolie continue to take a huge emotional and financial toll on her and their family,” the filing reads. “Jolie longs for their family to be able to heal and their children to be spared further pain and trauma, and truly wishes Pitt would want the same too.”

Legal proceedings as they pertain to the Miraval dispute also remain ongoing. The former couple purchased the country estate and winery in the south of France in 2008.

Tama Janowitz wrote “Slaves of New York” and then…

Janowitz was part of the 80s literary Brat Pack along with Bret Easton Ellis and Jay McInerney. “Slaves of New York” was a collection of short stories mainly about the 80s art scene in New York City. The stories are funny and satirical. But she never reached those heights again. Were her follow-up books (“A Cannibal in Manhattan,” “The Male Crossdressers Support Group” among others) too high concept? Just not good? She was published in the New Yorker several times, was a Studio 54 habitué, a regular dinner partner of Andy Warhol. Then… nothing.

McInerney has his wine, Ellis still writes. But the Brooklyn Public Library doesn’t even have a copy of “Slaves” to borrow in storage.

"Jeffrey Dahmer with veneers" Kristi Noem brags about killing her 14 month old puppy in upcoming book

Apologies if this has been posted. I searched for both Dahmer and Noem.

“Cricket was a wirehair pointer, about 14 months old,” the South Dakota governor writes in a new book, adding that the dog, a female, had an “aggressive personality” and needed to be trained to be used for hunting pheasant.

She includes her story about the ill-fated Cricket, she says, to illustrate her willingness, in politics as well as in South Dakota life, to do anything “difficult, messy and ugly” if it simply needs to be done.

By taking Cricket on a pheasant hunt with older dogs, Noem says, she hoped to calm the young dog down and begin to teach her how to behave. Unfortunately, Cricket ruined the hunt, going “out of her mind with excitement, chasing all those birds and having the time of her life”.

Noem describes calling Cricket, then using an electronic collar to attempt to bring her under control. Nothing worked. Then, on the way home after the hunt, as Noem stopped to talk to a local family, Cricket escaped Noem’s truck and attacked the family’s chickens, “grabb[ing] one chicken at a time, crunching it to death with one bite, then dropping it to attack another”

When Noem finally grabbed Cricket, she says, the dog “whipped around to bite me”. Then, as the chickens’ owner wept, Noem repeatedly apologised, wrote the shocked family a check “for the price they asked, and helped them dispose of the carcasses littering the scene of the crime”.

Through it all, Noem says, Cricket was “the picture of pure joy”.

“I hated that dog,” Noem writes, adding that Cricket had proved herself “untrainable”, “dangerous to anyone she came in contact with” and “less than worthless … as a hunting dog”.

“At that moment,” Noem says, “I realised I had to put her down.”

Noem, who also represented her state in Congress for eight years, got her gun, then led Cricket to a gravel pit.

“It was not a pleasant job,” she writes, “but it had to be done. And after it was over, I realised another unpleasant job needed to be done.”

Incredibly, Noem’s tale of slaughter is not finished.

Her family, she writes, also owned a male goat that was “nasty and mean”, because it had not been castrated. Furthermore, the goat smelled “disgusting, musky, rancid” and “loved to chase” Noem’s children, knocking them down and ruining their clothes

Noem decided to kill the unnamed goat the same way she had just killed Cricket the dog. But though she “dragged him to a gravel pit”, the goat jumped as she shot and therefore survived the wound. Noem says she went back to her truck, retrieved another shell, then “hurried back to the gravel pit and put him down”.

At that point, Noem writes, she realised a construction crew had watched her kill both animals. The startled workers swiftly got back to work, she writes, only for a school bus to arrive and drop off Noem’s children.

“Kennedy looked around confused,” Noem writes of her daughter, who asked: “Hey, where’s Cricket?”

Ohio State Grad's mother suffers fatal fall from stadium during graduation ceremony

The woman who plunged to her death from the stands of the Ohio State University commencement ceremony over the weekend was identified as a graduate’s parent — and her death was likely a suicide, officials announced Tuesday.

She was identified by her fingerprints.

Police are still investigating the tragedy, but believe it was “not accidental.”

Rick Lenz- a Vintage Beefcake

Rick Lenz was born on November 21, 1939 in Springfield, Illinois. He was a popular football player in High School but quit because he kept breaking bones. He was very tall and very thin and constantly got hurt while playing. Once he was off the football team he no longer had all the attention from the girls in school any longer so he joined the drama club and began acting in school plays. His sensitivity and charm in the plays made him popular with the girls again.

After high school he attended the University of Michigan where he earned a degree in theater in 1964. While in college he began working at the Civic Theater in Jackson, Michigan. He directed the theater for two years before he decided to move to NYC to seek out work as an actor.

Not long after relocating to NYC he landed his first role on Broadway, in “Mating Dance”. The show was a disaster and closed on opening night. Despite the show closing opening night, stage impresario David Merrick was in the audience and impressed by the young actor. He cast Lenz as the understudy for the character Igor in the new play “Cactus Flower”. He remained understudy for over a year in the smash hit play, before the original actor left the play and Lenz took over the part. The play continued to do amazing. Film producer Mike Frankovich and Walter Matthau decided to offer him the same role in the film version being made, as they felt he was perfect as Igor and his style and looks would be great for the big screen. He took the role and would star opposite Goldie Hawn, who was cast over the stage actress (as was Ingrid Bergman over Lauren Bacall).

In 1968 he guest starred in 4 episodes of “Green Acres”, while also filming Cactus Flower the film, and also made a TV movie, “Doc”, that aired in 1969. “Cactus Flower” came out in 1969 and was a massive hit, commercially and critically. After the success of “Cactus Flower”, he was cast in a handful of theatrical films and tv guest spots in the 1970s. By 1980 his film career completely died, and his career was relegated to TV Guest spots and a few TV movies throughout the decade. He also did a couple of small plays. Because of this he changed career paths and began writing. He became a screenwriter (writing 3 episodes of Aloha Paradise in 1981 and 1 episode of The Love Boat in 1982) and a play writer, writing small plays he would star in.

In the 1990s-200s he continued writing and doing small plays as well as TV guest spots and a couple of TV movies. He had since written a few books, one being a memoir.

In 1982 he married his wife (who he is still married to). They have 3 children together, 2 sons and a daughter. In 2017 they moved to LA full time but still visit NYC when they can.

Sean Flynn- the fascinating tragedy of a Nepo Vintage Beefcake

Sean Leslie Flynn was born on May 31, 1941 in Los Angeles, California. He was the son of Hollywood legend Errol Flynn and his first wife, French-American actress Lili Damita.

After graduating from a boarding school in New Jersey in 1960, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and pursue acting. His only prior acting experience was when he was 15, when he appeared on his fathers tv show. In June of 1960, while visiting his mother in Fort Lauderdale, his good friend George Hamilton suggested Flynn shoot a scene for his new movie which was shooting in Fort Lauderdale at the time. He shot a few scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor.

In May 1961 he accepted a contract with Sage Western Pictures to star in the sequel to his father’s movie, Captain Blood. The film came out in 1964, titled “The Son of Captain Blood”. In September 1961 he began recording an album after signing a record deal with a low-status company. Two songs were released.

In 1962 George Hamilton announced plans to make a film titled “The Brothers”, starring himself, Sean Flynn and Terry Thomas, but it never came to be and was canceled. That same year Flynn became engaged to the daughter of John Payne and Anne Shirley, Julie Payne. They never went on to marry.

In 1963 and 1964 Flynn made a few European films but in 1964 he grew bored of acting and wanted to do something different. In 1964 he left to Africa to be a guide for safaris and big-game hunting. He also spent time as a game warden in Kenya. In 1965 he realized he spent much of his money so he went to Italy and made two Spaghetti Westerns for the money. They were filmed between Italy and Spain. In 1966, he went to Singapore to film his final film ever, a French-Italian action flick.

That same year (1966) Flynn began dabbling in Photojournalism. Flynn arrived in South Vietnam in January 1966 as a freelance photojournalist, first for the French magazine Paris Match, then for Time Life, and finally for United Press International (UPI). His photos went on to be published all over the world, and he became a big name in the high-risk photojournalism world (in 1966 he would even get wounded while trying to get photos). Throughout most of 1966 he stayed on battlefields to take photos, even being credited with saving an Australian platoon from decimation by a mine by identifying the mine while photographing the troops near Vũng Tàu.

In 1967, Flynn went to Jordan to cover the Arab–Israeli war of 1967. Flynn returned to Vietnam in 1968, after the Tet Offensive. He also worked as a cameraman for CBS News. Flynn went to Cambodia in early 1970 when news broke of North Vietnamese advances into that country.

On April 6, 1970, Flynn and a group of journalists left Phnom Penh to attend a government-sponsored press conference in Saigon. Flynn and Dana Stone decided to travel on motorcycles instead of limos, which is what the other journalists were using. There was a checkpoint in which 4 journalists had been captured. Flynn and Stone decided to go look into this and were never seen again. In 1984, 14 years after his disappearance, he was legally declared dead.

30 years ago, Bill Clinton de-linked China's most favored nation status as a trading partner from human rights

According to Human Rights Watch, on May 26, 1994, "President Clinton de-links human rights and [most favored nation trading status], saying while China had not made significant progress on many of the issues outlined in his 1993 Executive Order, a tough human rights policy was hampering the ability of the U.S. to pursue other interests. He bans $200 million worth of annual imports of Chinese munitions, and announces a "vigorous" new human rights policy, including an effort to get U.S. businesses in China to adhere to a voluntary set of principles for protecting human rights, increased support of broadcasting to China, undefined expanded mulitlateral efforts on human rights and support for nongovernmental organizations in China -- despite the fact that none existed at the time."

This seems inevitable. There's no way Clinton - or any politician - would be able to prevent American businesses from trading with China. Realeconomik, I guess.

A Missouri fifth grader raised enough money to pay off his entire school’s meal debt

Kids can now eat without breaking the piggy bank – at least, at Thomas Ultican Elementary School – thanks to fifth grader Daken Kramer.

Daken paid off the entire meal debt and then some, for his elementary school in Blue Springs, Missouri, after turning in a check for more than $7,300. Daken’s original goal was $3,500, which was just over the total of the school’s debt, according to Daken’s mother, Vanessa Kramer. The remaining amount was given to Blue Springs High School, another school in the district.

“Children in elementary school should not have debt tied to their name. We have found out that there are high schools that keep seniors from attending prom or walking at graduation if they have stuff like student lunch debt,” Kramer said. “Some families can’t help it. They can’t pay it off.”

In a video shared to his mom’s Facebook, Daken had challenged “friends, family and local businesses to donate what they can to this cause.”

Upon Daken’s request, Kramer reached out to Blue Springs School District to get information about the school’s meal debt. Soon, the online fundraiser was spreading to states like Texas, Florida and New Jersey. Within a matter of two weeks, Daken’s fundraiser more than doubled his goal.

As of Daken’s fifth grade graduation on Tuesday, the Daken Kramer Legacy Award will now be an annual honor for fifth graders striving to make their own mark.

Sean William Scott settles divorce for $1,000,000

Actor Seann William Scott has officially concluded his marriage to Olivia Korenberg, but it came at an expensive cost.

In the court documents, a judge accepted the dissolution of Scott's and Korenberg's marriage over their irreconcilable differences. Although the legal umpire signed off on their divorce settlement on May 21, activating the duo's single status will be official on August 21, 2024.

As for other issues like the division of their properties and expenses, the documents noted the pair entered a prenuptial agreement before their wedding in September 2019. They both acknowledged the prenup was "valid and enforceable in all aspects."

On that note, the former couple revealed Scott had "voluntarily paid various funds" to Korenberg since their separation last October, and this money would have served as her spousal support.

Nonetheless, upon the execution of this judgment, Scott agreed to pay Korenberg $1 million to resolve all disputes between them, including the spousal support waivers.

Donald Trump Shares Video Of Heckler Confronting Joe Scarborough

Donald Trump on Sunday shared a video of a man obscenely shouting at MSNBC host Joe Scarborough at the airport.

The former president and presumptive 2024 Republican nominee ― who has a longstanding beef with Scarborough’s constantcriticism of him on “Morning Joe” ― reposted a video of the encounter on Truth Social.

“I can’t wait for Uncle Donnie to win,” the heckler says. “I can’t wait. He’ll get rid of all you fucking liberals.”

“He’s your uncle?” Scarborough replies, taking a quick break from a phone call.

“You liberals are gone when he fucking wins,” the man continues. “You fucking blowjob liberals are done. Uncle Donnie’s gonna take this election landslide, cuz. Landslide, you fucking half a blowjob. Landslide. Get the fuck out of here, you scumbag.”

Scarborough and Trump reportedly were once friends until Scarborough stepped up his disapproval of him during the 2016 campaign.

Andrew McCarthy working on a "Brat Pack documentary"

Demi Moore and Andrew McCarthy enjoyed a mini Brat Pack reunion at the weekend.

McCarthy, 60, shared a photo of him and Moore together on Instagram while praising his former costar and revealing he's working on a "Brat Pack documentary" about the group of '80s teen actors, which also included Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald and Emilio Estevez.

"So great to see (for the first time in years and years) my St. Elmo's Fire co-star, the wondrous Demi Moore, and catch up for my Brat Pack documentary," McCarthy, 60, wrote alongside the photo of him and Moore which he juxtaposed with a photo from their 1985 film.

St. Elmo's Fire was McCarthy's big-screen debut, while it was one of Moore's first movies after she started out on General Hospital.

They both went on to star in several more of the era's iconic teen-focused movies, with McCarthy starring in Pretty in Pink (1986), Mannequin (1987) and Weekend at Bernie's (1989), while Moore led a series of '90s hits including Ghost (1990) and Indecent Proposal (1993).

While Moore continued on with her acting career, McCarthy moved behind the camera to direct episodes of shows like Gossip Girl, Orange is the New Black and The Blacklist.

He also pursued a career in journalism and has worked as both a writer and editor at National Geographic Traveler.

Earlier this month, McCarthy also released his fourth book, Walking with Sam, which chronicles the 500-mile trek he took through the Camino de Santiago with his son, Sam, two years ago.

Speaking to PEOPLE on May 3, he reflected on the journey with his son, whom he shares with ex-wife Carol Schneider, and called it "the best thing I've ever done twice."

"I'll remember it my whole life. I hope that he will, too. It's a thing that's hard to forget," McCarthy told PEOPLE. "I have to give a lot of credit to Sam for being willing to do that with his father."

He also opened up about his own acting days as he shared that Sam is keen to pursue acting in his own right after starring on Netflix's Dead to Me.

Though he said he never wanted Sam or his other children, Willow, 16, and Rowan, 9, whom he shares with his wife Dolores Rice, to take up "the family business," he said he understood the pull too.

"The Camino brings you home to yourself. And so if that's what [Sam] said to himself, then so be it. Acting saved my life when I was 15, so who am I to say what?" asks Andrew. "I was flailing around. And teenagers have to find something or else they get lost. It gave me a foothold in my life."

McCarthy has been open about his struggles with drugs and alcohol after his rise to fame in the Brat Pack — he entered rehab in 1992 and has been sober ever since.

Aside from pursuing a directing career and spending time as a journalist, the Pretty in Pink actor has also drawn on his own experiences to highlight the elusive world of the Brat Pack.

In 2020, he released his first memoir, Brat: An '80s Story, which explored the inner workings of his life in the days leading up to his iconic '80s roles, and the comedown that followed.

"I've carried the brat pack around with me all these years, I thought it was time I took a good look under that rock," he told PEOPLE in a statement at the time. "What I found surprised me."

In recent months, McCarthy has shared similar posts with other members of the Brat Pack, including two of his other St Elmo's Fire costars Lowe and Estevez — who he revealed he hadn't seen for "more than 30 years."

Despite this, he said his reunion with Estevez "felt like meeting a long-lost brother."

Lowe on the other hand was the first actor McCarthy met in Hollywood. It "felt like yesterday" to see him again, he said.

Pennies from Heaven (1981 film)

I just watched the film Pennies from Heaven (1981) for the first time. I've heard so many mixed reviews over the past 40+ years, I never bothered to watch it. Yet it was on TCM the other night, I recorded it, and watched it this weekend. I really enjoyed it.

Steve Martin was unbelievably sexy in this movie (he was 34 when it was filmed) - I never realized how handsome and sexy he is. Too bad he always had a tee shirt on in the bedroom, or was always dressed. Bernadette Peters was perfectly cast, as was Jessica Harper (who was quite popular in movies in the early 80s). Christopher Walken was also great in his sexy strip-tease dance, but on screen too briefly. The music, the costumes, the acting , the sets - really top notch. At times it seemed to slow down a bit, but then it picked right up again before the viewer gets bored.

So why wasn't this a box office success ? Steve Martin has said it was his favorite movie to make, but audiences were not ready to see him in a 'serious movie' (his first movie was 1979's 'The Jerk'). It had a $22M budget and only pulled in $9M at the Box Office. Peters won a Golden Globe for her performance, but no Oscar nomination. (The film got three Oscar nods but none for acting, directing or 'best movie').

Any thoughts ?

Jack Kerouac- legendary writer, pioneer to the Beat Generation, and Vintage Beefcake

. There is so much that can be written about him as he lived one of the most fascinating lives (in my opinion), but I will keep it short.

Jean-Louis Lebris de Kérouac (known as Jack Kerouac) was born on March 12, 1922 in Lowell, Massachusetts to French-Canadian parents. He grew up speaking French only despite being American, and didn’t begin learning English until he was six years old, and spoke English with a French accent until his late teen years when he finally was able to lose the accent. His parents were devout Catholics and he always credited his mother with instilling strong faith and Christian values in him from a young age.

Kerouac went to Lowell High School where he was a star athlete in football and wrestling. His skills as a running back in football earned him scholarship offers from Boston College, Notre Dame and Columbia, with him choosing Columbia. He spent a year at Horace Mann School in The Bronx, and after the year he entered Columbia.

He broke his leg while playing football his freshman year and then spent the majority of his sophomore year benched because he did not get along with the Coach and would get into screaming matches with him. He wrote sports articles for the college newspaper during this time and joined the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. He also studied at The New School in NYC during this time.

When his football career at Columbia ended he decided to drop out of college. He stayed in NYC for a while, living on the Upper West Side with his girlfriend (and future first wife). During this time he met the Beat Generation figures who would shape his legacy and became figures in many of his novels.

Kerouac was a United States Merchant Mariner from July to October 1942 and served on the SS Dorchester before its maiden voyage. While a Merchant Mariner in 1942, Kerouac wrote his first novel, The Sea Is My Brother. The book was published in 2011, 70 years after it was written and over 40 years after Kerouac's death.

In 1944, Kerouac was arrested as a material witness in the murder of David Kammerer, who allegedly had been stalking Kerouac's friend Lucien Carr since he was a teen.

Later, Kerouac lived with his parents in the Ozone Park neighborhood of Queens, after they had also moved to New York. He wrote his first published novel, The Town and the City, and began On the Road around 1949 when living there.

The Town and the City was published in 1950 under the name "John Kerouac" and got some good reviews but flopped in sales.

For the next six years, Kerouac continued to write regularly. Building upon previous drafts tentatively titled "The Beat Generation" and "Gone on the Road," Kerouac completed what is now known as On the Road in April 1951, while living at 454 West 20th Street in Manhattan with his second wife, Joan Haverty. Kerouac completed the first version of the novel during a three-week extended session of spontaneous confessional prose. Kerouac wrote the final draft in 20 days, with Joan, his wife, supplying him with benzedrine, cigarettes, bowls of pea soup, and mugs of coffee to keep him going. After the book was finished being written in 1951, he struggled to find a publisher.

Kerouac had a history of heavy drinking and depression.

In 1957, over six years after it was written, Jack finally found someone who would publish “On The Road”. Viking Press purchased the book but demanded the book be heavily revised before they could publish it. Jack had to remove most of the sexually explicit passages in the book and was forced to use pseudonyms for his characters instead of using the real peoples names to avoid a libel suit. This revision sanitized the book greatly, to Kerouac’s dismay.

The success of the book brought Kerouac fame, but with fame comes both good and bad. Kerouac was jumped and beaten up numerous times by men on the street and his friends were constantly attacked also, as well as robbed. Kerouac became scared to go out in public.

Killer LAPD cop Stephanie Lazarus might get out of prison

A former Los Angeles police detective for years hid the truth about how she killed her ex's new wife. Now, she could go free.

The family of Sherri Rasmussen is outraged that a California board recommended that her killer is eligible for parole.

A former Los Angeles police detective was convicted of murdering her ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2012, more than two decades after Sherri Rasmussen was killed in her Southern California condo.

But last month parole officials concluded that Stephanie Lazarus, the former detective who was sentenced to 27 years to life in prison, is eligible for parole. And Rasmussen’s relatives are outraged that the woman who hid the truth about the murder and continued to work as a law enforcement officer for more than 20 years could go free.

Lazarus, now 63 and incarcerated southeast of Los Angeles, pleaded not guilty during her trial and had not publicly admitted to her role in the 1986 killing until a parole suitability hearing on Nov. 16, according to two relatives who attended the hearing.

Connie Rasmussen, Sherri Rasmussen’s older sister, said in her family's first interview about the decision that while Lazarus acknowledged killing Sherri during the hearing, she did not apologize to relatives and appeared to downplay the seriousness of the crime, saying that she hadn’t intended to kill Sherri when she went to the Van Nuys condo on Feb. 24, 1986.

Michael Corbett- veteran soap star & Vintage Beefcake

Michael Corbett was born on June 20, 1956 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He knew he wanted to be an actor from a young age but didn’t pursue it until after college. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, and after graduating attended the Boston Conservatory. Two weeks after he graduated from the Boston Conservatory he started off his Broadway career, with a role in Nefertiti. After that he played Kenicki in a production of Grease and then a role in the production of Come Back Little Sheba. After those roles he did the Off-Broadway play The Matinee Kids. It was during one of his Broadway shows that a casting director for the soap opera Ryan’s Hope was in the audience and took notice of him. The casting director offered him a role right away, and he was cast as Michael Pavel Jr. in 1979. He played the role from 1979 to 1981, when he decided to leave when his two-year contract was done.

Dan Levy's new movie "Good Grief" is mercilessly mocked

"Rich people like Marc Dreyfus (Levy), a newly widowed American expat who has nothing to do but swan around the half-empty — but fully exquisite — London flat that his Adonis-like husband (Luke Evans) left to him after being killed in a car crash on Christmas Eve. It can’t be easy to lose someone that hot at such a young age, and it’s perfectly understandable that Marc responds to the tragedy by trying to avoid everything that reminds him of his late husband (work being at the top of the list, as Marc had sacrificed his artistic ambitions to draw the illustrations for Oliver’s wildly popular series of YA novels), but a year of low-intensity yoga classes and insufferable modern art shows only manages to cocoon him deeper inside his grief."

And it goes on from there...

How Joe Can Win

I'm convinced that the only way we can be sure of a Biden win is if he asks Kamala to quietly resign (illness, family issues, whatever) to make way for an "ordinary white guy" VP candidate. And no, I don't mean the governor of California.

That's what happened during the 2020 primaries; we had all kinds of folks running )I liked Lizzie Warren, myself), but we all settled for the ordinary white guy who we knew had the best chance of winning. And he did. We backed the right horse, because even now, ordinary white guys have the best chance of winning.

And nobody really liked Biden's choice of Kamala, and she hasn't gotten any better with time. I personally doubt if Biden will make it four more years with his mental or physical faculties unimpaired, and I know I'm not the only one thinking about that. Although I know I have no choice but to vote for Biden, I sure don't want Kamala to be president.

The best solution, IMHO, is for Kamala to walk away quietly and for, say, Gov. Roy Cooper (D, NC) or someone similar to take her place. We could use a little southern influence on the ticket, but here, I'm open to suggestions.

You can certainly call me a sexist or racist if you like (I'm not), but desperate times call for desperate measures. We absolutely have to win this election and IDGAF how we do it (no cheating, though!). The only way I can think of to win over independents and Trump "leaners," is by saying, "Well, look at it this way: at least if/when Biden dies, this bland white guy over here will take over."

What say you, DLers?

Colton Underwood and Jordan C. Brown Expecting First Baby Together

Colton Underwood and Jordan C. Brown are going to be parents!

The former Bachelor star, 32, announced he is expecting his first baby via surrogate with his husband, political and philanthropic strategist Jordan C. Brown, 38, in an interview with Men's Health. The couple is set to welcome a baby boy in early October.

Underwood tells PEOPLE that he and Brown, who just celebrated their first wedding anniversary on May 13, can’t wait to be fathers.

“That was one of the things we bonded over early in our relationship. We both wanted to be dads,” says Underwood. “But it's been such an incredible experience for us to go through this together, and I cannot wait to watch Jordan become a dad.”

In February, Underwood opened up about his path to fatherhood to PEOPLE, sharing that he was chronicling his journey to become a parent on a new podcast, Daddyhood. At the time, Underwood shared that he and Brown had embryos made and frozen and were currently undergoing testing with their surrogate, whose identity they are keeping private.

“I think outside of the LGBTQ+ matters — the obvious discrimination and what's at stake for us — straight couples too, need to stop putting the blame on the women. I think that's one thing that I could at least say, from two men going through this, is I've had some fertility issues and struggles, and I don't think a lot of men openly talk about that," Underwood shared.

“I mean right away, my husband gets his results back for his sperm count and he had incredible, great numbers, and I got mine back and all my sperm was dead. And I think immediately I was just like, 'Oh, what does this mean? It means I'm sterile and can't have kids now.' And it was not a great feeling," he added.

The couple first began their in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surrogacy journey two years ago, right around the time they also started to plan their wedding.

But, he is best known for his tour de force performance in the internationally acclaimed I, Claudius.

Enty Lawyer identified

Enty Lawyer the blind item king from Crazy Days and Nights has been outed and he isn't even practicing law if he is even an actual attorney. He is a fifty something year old podcaster and blogger who is in Indio, CA, He doesn't even live in LA. He is allegedlgy a very sick person and has done horrific things to women. His whole thing where he exposes predators is rich as he is also one. I have been in communication with a woman he has done terrible things to! He recorded hours of her when they were in a "relationship" together. She found out later on that he was married with 2 daughters. He love bombed her and gaslit her into believing they were going to live together in California and get married and have children. He told her he loved her and was coming to be with her and 1 hour later she was served with stalking papers. The court saw his texts to her and said that the stalking complaints were not valid but by making the papers so public he put her at risk from her ex husband who she escaped from getting beaten by. This man needs to pay the price -- the same price he's been putting on other predators in Hollywood. Now that I know this, I know that this man knows no celebrities, is probably not a lawyer, isn't practicing law, is married with kids but victimizes other women. He got into a huge fight with his wife which somehow he left a voicemail of the other woman. His former cohost for true crime was apparently treated the same way.

Mine was when I was 19. I'm a suburban 80's kid, so naturally Madonna was a huge influence.

I had gone to the gay club in the surrounding large city and got piss drunk and slutty.

I side-swiped an 18 wheeler (I know, drunk driving is very bad), tore the whole side of my car off, ran through a big hedge of bushes in our front yard, and passed out in the car.

I was wearing an 80's Madonna "Boy Toy" belt, and can still vaguely hear my mother's voice say to my father (through my drunken stupor) "Look at his belt".

Grayson Murray, two-time PGA Tour winner, dead at 30

The PGA Tour has announced that golfer Grayson Murray died Saturday morning. He was 30 years old.

"We were devastated to learn – and are heartbroken to share – that PGA TOUR player Grayson Murray passed away this morning. I am at a loss for words," said PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan in a statement.

"The PGA TOUR is a family, and when you lose a member of your family, you are never the same. We mourn Grayson and pray for comfort for his loved ones.

"I reached out to Grayson’s parents to offer our deepest condolences, and during that conversation, they asked that we continue with tournament play. They were adamant that Grayson would want us to do so. As difficult as it will be, we want to respect their wishes.

"The PGA TOUR has grief counselors available at both tournament sites, as well as virtually for those not in the field. I am en route to Ft. Worth and will share more information when we can."

No cause of death was announced.

Murray was part of this week's field at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas but withdrew during Friday's second round, citing an illness.

The Tour contemplated halting play at the tournament but, according to Jim Nantz on the CBS broadcast, Murray's family insisted the event continue.

In January, Murray earned his second PGA Tour victory by winning the Sony Open in Hawaii in a playoff, snapping a six-year winless drought.

Henry Geldzahler Cut Me From the Herd

I'm starting a thread for all my brethren who were cut from the herd by Henry Geldzahler. If this is not you, please move on and let us reminisce in peace.

If this is you, please share your stories.

I usually take a pilgrimage to Assouline to have my photo taken beneath this one of Henry Geldzahler and Andy Warhol, two guys who meant so much to my early life in NYC. They opened lots of doors for me into the inner rarefied rooms of the city until they nudged me from the nest to make room for other youngsters they cut from the herd to add to their folds. Henry would have cringed at that mixed metaphor; Andy might have noticed but would not have allowed himself to cringe and mar the mask of himself. They knew when I was ready to make my own way once I'd learned more fully and cleverly the charms of palaver and poise and a kind of performative southernness, some would even say it was - it is - a perversion of southernness because of my politics. But labeling it so just signals their own perverse contextualization of southernness to exclude my hero Fannie Lou Hamer to make way for hoop skirts and "how y'all?"s and honeyed accents that hide the sting of history. Henry and Andy helped me find a sense of home within my southern self when for so long what was within myself back home was what sent me into exile. Henry and Andy - exiled themselves to lives in NY - taught me that to have stayed back where we were raised would have been sentencing ourselves instead to an exile from ourselves. "Sometimes," Henry once said to me. "We are born in Elba. It's getting off that island to this one that saves our lives." He paused and put a Grether's Pastille into his mouth and stared at his half a cigar. He straightened his porcelain bowtie. I heard, as usual, the clink of the ring against it, a ring his jeweler cousin Johnny gave him, a hollowed out gold one inside of which were two small diamonds that could be emptied into one's hand from a tiny secret compartment. Henry emptied them into his soft small palm, they glistened in its pinkness. "Do you know what the name of the ship on which Napoleon was sent to his exile on Elba?" he asked. "The Undaunted. The HMS Undaunted."

Delusional Claims of Family Prominence

I have observed that some of my acquaintances place significant emphasis on their familial ties to certain cities, often citing their longstanding family presence. For instance, they might say, "We could never leave St. Louis. Our family has been here for 300 years, and everyone knows who we are." However, in reality, their family is scarcely recognized outside of minor mentions in old local library books.

Interestingly, these same friends tend to be highly critical and display a notable level of arrogance, which I suspect stems from insecurity. Despite their assertions of family prominence, I have yet to discern any substantial basis for these claims. This leads me to wonder if their statements are more a manifestation of delusions of grandeur.

Personally, I am related to historically significant individuals, including some of the founding fathers of the United States. Nevertheless, I would never consider moving to Philadelphia to assert my prominence based on my lineage, as such behavior would likely be met with ridicule.

Do you know people like this? What makes them tick?

Dana Ashbrook- a Vintage Beefcake

Dana Vernon Ashbrook was born on May 24, 1967 in San Diego, California. His father was the director of the Palomar College Department of Performing Arts, and his mother was a teacher who performed at their local theater.

His very first role was an uncredited part in 1978’s “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!” when he was just 10 years old. After this he just stuck to school and school plays. His career officially started while he was a teen and in the school play. An agent saw him in the play and was impressed, offering to be his agent. He instantly got cast in guest roles on some tv shows like Lacey & Cagney, Knots Landing and ABC Afterschool Special. Right after that, in 1988, he was cast as Tom Essex in Return of the Living Dead 2 and cast in Waxwork, followed by a guest spot on 21 Jump Street. In 1989 he landed the role of Joey in She's Out Of Control.

The role that would be what he is best known for came in 1990, when he landed the role of Bobby Briggs in the series “Twin Peaks”. He played the role from 1990-1991. While filming Twin Peaks he also made four low budget films, all within a year, as well as guest starred on an episode of “The Hidden Room”.

In 1992 he reprised his role in the Twin Peaks prequel film and portrayed Clyde in Bonnie & Clyde, a TV movie. After this he starred in a few tv movies, independent films, low-budget films and failed tv shows for the remainder of the 90s. In the late 90s and early 00s he guest starred in numerous tv shows, like Charmed, The Outer Limits, The Pretender, Rules of Engagement, Dawson’s Creek, and Law & Order SVU.

In 2009 he was cast as a recurring character on the series “Crash”, the show based off the 2004 film, and he guest starred on an episode of Psych in 2010. After this he continued doing low budget films until 2017, when he reprised his role of Bobby Briggs in the revival to Twin Peaks, giving him another chance at the mainstream.

Since 2017 he has done more small films and guest spots on tv, and has never stopped working since the late 80s.

He is now 56 and has been married to his wife since 2015 after years of being together.

Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy

Can someone explain what the deal with them really was? When i was growing up, Hepburn was still alive, and it was pretty well known she had had a lifelong secret affair (which was an open secret in Hollywood) with Spencer Tracy, who could not marry her because she was married to a very Catholic wife who would not divorce him.

But in recent years, it's been said she was a lesbian (not hard to believe) and that he was a drunken closeted gay man (also not hard to believe), and their relationship was some sort of lavender (non-)marriage. Did they have sex at all? Did they have long-term same-sex partners? And is there a book that explains all of this?

It seems so elaborate (although plausible) for Spencer Tracy to have an "open secret" love affair that actually hid even MORE secret love affairs that dared not be exposed.

Gregory Harrison- from TV Star of the 70s and 80s to Vintage Beefcake

Gregory Neale Harrison was born on May 31, 1950 in Avalon, Catalina Island, California. After HS he served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War as a medic for two years. After two years he received an honorable discharge in 1971 from the Army as a non-religious conscientious objector.

After the army he began working as a doorman for a nightclub. One night while working he met actor Jason Robards who took notice of the young man, and encouraged him to get into acting, as he had the looks for television. Harrison took the words of encouragement as a sign and quit his job and moved to LA immediately. He began taking acting lessons as well as vocal and dance, and began working in theatre and musical theatre. In 1973 he booked his first job, as one of the students in “The Harrad Experiment”, an uncredited extra role. In 1975 he booked his first speaking role, with a role in “Trilogy of Terror”. He would do another film and a few guest spots on television, but it was him landing a guest spot on the super-hit series “MASH” in 1976 that would help him get more steady work.

After appearing in one episode of “MASH” in 1976 he was cast in a role in the film “Fraternity Row” and then a supporting role in the TV film “The Gathering” in 1977. After that he was cast as the lead of the TV series “Logan’s Run” that same year. The series only lasted 14 episodes before being canceled in early 1978.

In 1978 he was cast in a supporting role in the hit mini-series “Centennial”. In 1979 he would land the role that would be his most successful, one of the lead roles of the hit CBS series “Trapper John, MD”. The series was a spinoff of MASH. He would star in that series for over 6 years, leaving midway through season 7. While on the show he starred in numerous television films, but most notably he was the lead of the tv movie “For Ladies Only” in 1981, a tv movie about a man from Iowa who moves to NYC to become an actor but becomes a stripper to make money when he goes broke. The film gave him a huge following with women and gay men. In 1986 he starred in the miniseries “Fresno”, playing a character that spoofed his character in “For Ladies Only”.

After “Trapper John, MD” he did more small films and tv movie before jointing “Falcon Crest” in 1989, in what would be its final season. In 1990 he starred in his own sitcom “The Family Man”, which was canceled after one season despite CBS trying to build it an audience. Throughout the 90s and 00s he would star in many tv movies and do many guest spots on tv shows. In 1994 he joined the series “Sisters” for one season.

In 2020 he joined the cast of General Hospital as Gregory Chase.

He played Billy Flynn in a touring production of Chicago, and he was the male lead in each film of the Au Pair trilogy. He also appeared as Benjamin Stone in the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's Follies and starred in the original Broadway production of Kander & Ebb's musical Steel Pier.

He has been married for over 40 years and has three daughters and one son via adoption.

In the 80s he fell deep into alcoholism and became a cocaine addict. He entered himself into the Betty Ford Center for help.

DJ Qualls Reveals He’s Engaged to ‘Supernatural’ Costar Ty Olsson: ‘We’re Going to Be Old Men Together’

Supernatural stars DJ Qualls and Ty Olsson are engaged!

The actor, 45, revealed the big news on the May 15 episode of his Locked and Probably Loaded podcast with Kelly Blackheart. During the episode, he shared that he and Olsson clicked after they met and then built a strong bond over the years as their friendship evolved into something more.

“Ty and I became inseparable at the very beginning, just immediately,” Qualls shared. “And over the last 10 years our relationship evolved to what it is today, and now we’re getting married.”

The actor, who played werewolf Garth on the series, also recalled how he first met his fiancé, who played the vampire Benny on the show, at a convention for the popular CW series. He said they “didn’t know each other at all,” adding, “We maybe said three words together at the Supernatural convention, and then we went to London for four or five days afterward.”

“And then I was going to Turkey with a friend — and he is such a pure, awesome guy. He came up to us — we all went out as a group — and he was like, ‘Can I come on your trip with you?’ “ the Z Nation actor said.

“And I’m like, ‘That is so ballsy!’ I could never invite myself on somebody’s trip. ‘Cause I’d be afraid they would begrudgingly tell me yes and then not want me there. But it was just so pure and awesome, and that’s who he is,” he continued. “I didn’t know him. And it was the beginning of our friendship.”

Qualls went on to describe Olsson as one of the “most wonderful” people he’s ever met.

“It’s just so crazy that this person who was just my friend, now I think about all the time and he sends the best messages, and he supports me and loves me unconditionally in the right way," Qualls continued.

The Turning Point actor further pointed out on the podcast that he felt that “unconditional love” comes with the condition that “you treat that person with some respect and their best interests are your best interests,” and that was something Olsson did with him.

“Ty was the first person in my entire life, my entire life that I ever had that with,” Qualls said. “I say just a friend. He is the best friend I ever had, and now we’re going to be old men together, which is so crazy.”

The Illinois village of Dolton has voted in favor of a resolution to hire ex-Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to investigate its own leader, Tiffany Henyard, who is accused of misusing taxpayer funds and various other corrupt practices.

Lightfoot, who lost her reelection bid in a landslide last year, said she was “honored” to be tasked with the investigation of Henyard — Dolton’s self-proclaimed “Super Mayor.”

“As someone who has made good governance the cornerstone of my career in public service, I recognize that maintaining the trust of those you serve and making decisions in their best interests is essential,” Lightfoot said in a statement on Monday evening.

Bill Maher defends Harrison Butker amid speech uproar: 'I don't see what the big crime is'

On 'Real Time,' the comedian said about the backlash over the NFL player's comments to women, "I don't see what the big crime is, I really don't."

Bill Maher admitted he was confused on the latest episode of Real Time about the controversy surrounding Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker‘s commencement speech at Benedictine College.

This week, the NFL player was criticized across social media over his graduation speech at the private Catholic school, which included comments condemning abortion, euthanasia, IVF, surrogacy and the LGBTQ community. He also made some remarks directed towards women in the crowd, suggesting they should embrace being a “homemaker.”

Maher initially emphasized “how much this guy is not like me,” noting Butker’s “religious, he loves marriage, he loves kids,” — all things the comedian has publicly expressed not having an interest in.

“Here’s a quote of his, ‘I’ve seen it firsthand how much happier someone can be when they disregard the outside noise and move closer and closer to God’s will,'” Maher said. “Yeah, not me. I couldn’t be more not like this.”

However, Maher went on to say he doesn’t understand the backlash regarding Butker’s comments that were directed toward women during his speech.

“I don’t get the thing he said, talking to women, ‘Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world.’ OK, that seems fairly modern,” Maher said before continuing to read the football player’s remarks. “‘But I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.’ I don’t see what the big crime is, I really don’t.”

Maher explained, “I think this is part of the problem people have with the left, is that lots of people in this country are like this. Like he’s saying some of you may go on to successful careers, but a lot of you are excited about this other way that people, everybody used to be and now can. Can’t that just be a choice too? And I feel like they feel very put upon like there’s only one way to be a good person and that’s to get an advanced degree from one of those asphalt factories like Harvard.”

The comedian isn’t the only person in Hollywood to come to Butker‘s defense amid the controversy. On Thursday’s episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg defended the Chiefs player’s right to free speech, even if she doesn’t share his beliefs.

“I like when people say what they need to say,” the EGOT winner said. “He’s at a Catholic college, he’s a staunch Catholic. These are his beliefs and he’s welcome to them. I don’t have to believe them, I don’t have to accept them, the ladies that were sitting in that audience don’t have to accept them.”

Goldberg continued, “The same way we want respect when Colin Kaepernick takes a knee, we want to give respect to people whose ideas are different from ours because the man who says he wants to be president, You-Know-Who, he says the way to act is to take away people’s right to say how they feel. We don’t want to be that. We don’t want to be those people.”

Amid the viral backlash, the NFL clarified in a statement this week that Butker‘s “views are not those of the NFL as an organization.”

At the end of the discussion on Real Time, Maher added, “I find it very ironic that he’s saying, you know what, in my world, we like the women to stay at home and just have babies, and the college kids and the young people find this absolutely abhorrent, but they’re demonstrating for Hamas.”

The guests featured on the latest episode included Michael Eric Dyson, Nellie Bowles and Pamela Paul.

Andrew Scott is tired of talking about being gay

“Straight people don’t have to talk about their sexuality every time they go to work”

“It’s wonderful to be able to talk about sexuality in an open way. But I do feel sometimes, other people — and by other people, I mean straight people — don’t have to explain or talk about their sexuality every time they go to work.

The idea that I’m being defiant by just being exactly who I am … Be open about it? Why wouldn’t you be open about it? But the word ‘openly,’ for me, just seems a little loaded.

A lot of this stuff has really affected me in my own life growing up. God knows I didn’t have a lot of gay content. We live in an identity-politics era. We’re separating each other more than we need to.

This hysteria about your sexuality and how that is something that is only understandable to people who belong to the same tribe as you — it just doesn’t seem truthful.

Sometimes I find it hard when you’re doing press, because I feel so joyful and so emancipated. It seems like I always want to talk about the difficulties that I have with being gay, when actually, it’s the greatest joy of my life.

What is the best thing that we could do? I don’t have the definite answer. Would it be unusual for us not to mention my sexuality at all?”

Eric Trump Slammed For ‘Particularly Disgusting’ Memorial Day Weekend Post

Eric Trump drew ire over Memorial Day weekend with a post about sacrifice on X, formerly Twitter.

Former President Donald Trump’s son shared another user’s post which featured a photo of the Trump family and the claim that they’d given up “everything to Save America.”

“And we will do it again!” the Trump scion wrote.

The image featured Donald Trump and wife Melania Trump, Eric Trump and wife Lara Trump and Donald Trump Jr. and fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner were not in it.

Critics argued the post was in poor taste, given how the weekend is supposed to be about honoring America’s fallen service members.

“I wasn’t going to tweet anything political this weekend, but i have to make an exception for this,” responded former Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), a former Air Force second lieutenant who is a fierce critic of the Trumps.

“Your family has sacrificed nothing, your name will become synonymous with ‘Benedict Arnold’ and how dare you tweet this, THIS weekend,” he added. “You don’t know the first thing about service you child.”

Conservative commentator Bill Kristol, meanwhile, called it “particularly disgusting to post this on Memorial Day weekend.”

The New Musical Death Becomes Her Is Gonna Be A Big GAY Broadway Hit This Fall

Previews begin in late October at the Lunt-Fontaine for the big splashy musical Death Becomes Her, starring a zoftig Megan Hilty as Madeline Ashton and Jennifer Simard (killing it) as Helen Sharp. Dr. Menville is played by the slightly doughy Christopher Seiber, and - at least for the previews in Chicago - a beautiful but soulless Michelle Williams (Destiny's Child) in the Rossalini role. Don't bet on her making the transfer. I don't think she'll be able to stay awake long enough...

The opening number is the gayest thing ever seen on stage since Peter Allen shook his paired maracas like a reach-around at The Mineshaft. I howled.

The second acts drags a bit, but I'm sure they'll fix it. Megan will lose a little weight and Michelle will be put down.

Trump's Team Says It Will Sue After 'Garbage' Biopic Premieres In Cannes

“The Apprentice,” which is labeled as inspired by true events, portrays Trump’s dealings with Cohn as a Faustian bargain that guided his rise as a businessman and, later, as a politician. Stan’s Trump is initially a more naive real estate striver, soon transformed by Cohn’s education.

The film notably contains a scene depicting Trump raping his wife, Ivana Trump (played by Maria Bakalova). In Ivana Trump’s 1990 divorce deposition, she stated that Trump raped her. Trump denied the allegation and Ivana Trump later said she didn’t mean it literally, but rather that she had felt violated.

Donald Trump Movie ‘The Apprentice’ Shocks Cannes

One of the most anticipated moments of the 77th Cannes Film Festival finally arrived Monday night with the world premiere of the Donald Trump drama The Apprentice, starring Sebastian Stan as a young version of the real estate mogul in his pre-MAGA days.

Only Francis Ford Coppola’s wildly ambitious swan song Megalopolis had inspired more pre-premiere chatter and curiosity at this year’s edition of the glamorous French film festival. Ahead of its unveiling, virtually no one had seen The Apprentice, as the movie reportedly was finished only days before its premiere.

Ali Abbasi, Stan, Martin Donovan and Maria Bakalova walked the Cannes red carpet for the premiere. Only Jeremy Strong, who plays notorious political fixer Roy Cohn in the film, was not in attendance.

Directed by acclaimed Iranian-Danish filmmaker Abbasi and written by Gabe Sherman, The Apprentice explores Donald Trump’s rise to power in 1980s America under the influence of the firebrand rightwing attorney Roy Cohn. Succession star Strong co-stars as Cohn, along with Martin Donovan (Tenet) as Fred Trump Sr. and Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) as Ivana Trump.

Several shocking moments late in the film — a scene depicting Trump’s alleged rape of his first wife Ivana and a surgery room sequence showing Trump getting liposuction — drew audible gasps from the Cannes premiere crowd. As the final credits rolled, the Cannes crowd starting clapping in time to the sound of Baccara’s “Yes Sir, I Can Boogie” playing on the soundtrack.

A California man, who randomly punched two elderly victims in separate incidents and posed for a casual photo after one of the attacks, was arrested on Saturday, authorities said.

Nicholas Hosteter, 25, was identified in connection to the two attacks on elderly men in Campbell this month, the Campbell Police Department said.

In the first incident on May 4, Hosteter allegedly punched a victim on San Tomas Aquino Road before running away, police said.

The suspect, however, stopped to pose casually on a sidewalk as the victim snapped a photo in the hopes of identifying his alleged attacker. Police released the photo on social media and asked the public for help in identifying the suspect.

Nicholas Hosteter, 25, stopped and posed for a photo after allegedly punching an elderly man in a random attack earlier this month. The second random attack happened Friday morning as a 75-year-old man was taking a walk in Campbell, police said.

Hosteter allegedly punched the victim in the face near Inwood Drive and Elam Avenue.

When the 75-year-old man and his family returned to the area a short time later to look for surveillance cameras, they encountered Hosteter again, police said. Hosteter tried to fight the family before leaving the area, according to police.

Queer Theory destroys gay rights by making argument for Christians

Thanks to the queer movement's advocacy for more sexual liberation and violation of heterosexual norms. The foundation for gay rights has slowly been eroding. By advocating for sexual fluidity, Christians and conservatives can now argue that therapies like conversion therapy are legitimate. Defining sexual orientation as " sexual and emotional attraction to another person and the behavior and/or social affiliation that may result from this attraction. " Leads gay people open to attack as it makes it more like a sports club than an ethnic minority.

Richard Harrison- a Vintage Beefcake Model

Richard Harrison was born on May 26, 1936 in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1953, at the young age of 17 he decided to leave Utah and move to Los Angeles on his own, so he did just that. After arriving in LA, he quickly got hired to work for the Vic Tanny and Bert Goodrich gyms. While working there he was spotted by a physique photographer who asked him to do photoshoots for him that would inspire other young men to workout and have a physique like his, and he agreed, and for a brief time he became a physique model while also working at the gyms.

Many people who worked in the film industry would go workout at the gyms he worked at, and took notice of the attractive young man. He was told he should get into film acting, because he had the looks for it (a young, fit, handsome, chiseled blond with an amazing tan). This led him to study acting. Casting directors who went to the gym began giving him work.

Harrison started off as a bit player and background extra in films. His first job was in 1957 as a background player and his first speaking role was in 1958’s Kronos, starring Kim Novak. He did these small roles throughout the late 50s into 1960. He also did a few tv appearances and appeared in a play in Santa Monica.

In 1961 he met Loretta Nicholson, daughter of big-time producer and co-owner/founder of AIP studios James H. Nicholson, and they were married within 6 months of meeting. They went on to have 3 children together. He rushed her into marriage assuming it would help his career but it didn’t.

Harrison began growing tired of not getting good role offers in Hollywood so when he was offered a lead role for a European film, he took it. This led him to settle in Italy and become a movie star in Italy (appearing in sword and sandal films, then Eurospy films and Spaghetti Westerns) for over 2 decades. He originally signed a 3 picture deal that would last 20 years because of how popular he became over there. Because of his formal acting training while in Hollywood, he was viewed as a “real” actor compared to his counterparts like Brad Harris and Steve Reeves, who also became movie stars in Europe after failing in the states.

He starred in tons of big films in Italy, but in the mid- 70s his career began to slow down as the Spaghetti Western genre began dying. This led him to start making low-budget movies filmed all over the world, from Egypt to Turkey to Hong Kong. He still made some Italian films in that time but the roles weren’t coming like they used to and he was getting offered terrible B-movies. By the early 80s his career in Europe was dead, and he found work in Asia.

During the 80s he worked in mostly B-movie action films in the Philippines and Hong Kong. In the Philippines he starred in “ULTRA-LOW Budget” films, classified as Z-movies. He also began writing screenplays for Filipino films using a pseudonym. He claimed he wrote the entire screenplays in one sitting overnight. The poor quality of the films he was starring in hurt his reputation big time, especially in Italy, where he was once a big star. Harrison speaks mostly negatively about this time period, particularly certain people he had to work with. After being done with making Filipino films, he began making films in Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong, he filmed a small amount of low-budget ninja movies with filmmaker Godfrey Ho, however Ho re-edited his scenes from those few films into new scenes for new films in a cut-and-paste style filmmaking, adding Harrison to 24 different movies he never agreed to star in. Harrison became so disgusted he moved back to the USA.

In the USA he did a few films, but mostly stepped back as an actor and also did some producing and writing. He also did a few more European films, but filmed in the states. By 2000 he retired. In the 90s he ran for mayors office in Palm Springs and lost both times.

Loretta divorced him later (year is unknown) and in 1978 he married his second wife. They are still together.

I think Cybill Shephard has had more fictional characters based on her...

than any other actor. I could think of seven:

Cathy Lucas as Mavis Henscher in The Other Side of the Wind written a and directed by Orson Welles.

A spoof of Bogdanovich's then-girlfriend, actress Cybill Shepherd (who was present for at least some of the filming, and whose brother, Bill Shepherd, was part of the production crew filming in Arizona). A young actress, Henscher has difficulty balancing her acting career with the correspondence course her home state makes her take while working.

Cheryl Ladd as Pamela Verlaine in Permanent Midnight

"Sandra finds him a new job with a different series, No Such Luck, whose star Pamela Verlaine–herself a recovering addict–sternly but sympathetically insists that he kick his habit first. "

Sharon Stone as Blake Chandler in Irreconcilable Differences. (written and directed by Cybill's ex Peter Bogdanovich)-

When Albert sees a young woman named Blake Chandler working at a hot dog stand, he takes her home and casts her in his next film, which becomes a moderate success. When Lucy sees signs that Albert is interested in Blake for more than just acting, she divorces him, further troubling Casey. Albert ensures that Lucy gets custody of Casey, while he lives in a Hollywood mansion with Blake.

A turning point occurs when Lucy, angered both at Albert's procrastination in paying child support and at the sight of a sloppy, overweight woman in a supermarket buying the same comfort food as she is, hurries home and channels her anger into writing a tell-all novel. Meanwhile, Albert's producers are warning him not to attempt his musical remake of Gone with the Wind, which he is calling Atlanta, but Albert ignores their advice, and his budget for the picture skyrockets, mainly because of his own perfectionist attitude and Blake's mediocre singing voice, along with her diva-like behavior on set. Atlanta becomes an embarrassing box-office bomb, costing Albert any assignments in Hollywood and causing Blake to desert him.

Catherine O'Hara as Carol Ward on Six Feet Under. Carol was a neurotic actress that Lisa Kimmel (Lili Taylor) worked for. One of the writers had worked for Cybill Shephard as a nanny. Also creator Alan Ball has worked on her sitcom.

Annette Benning as Carolyn Bernham in American Beauty. Interview with Alan Ball- "...hating his job, you know, having to run Cybill. There's a lot of Cybill in Carolyn. There's a lot of me in Ricky, there's a lot of my dad in the Colonel, and there's a lot of my mom in the Colonel's wife...."

And of course, Cybill Shepherd as Cybill Sheridan on Cybill– Cybill is a middle aged actress who has had a varied, though mediocre career (which, even in her salad days, seems to have consisted primarily of television commercials, soap operas, and B-movies). She now finds that, due to her age, roles are becoming harder to find and that the quality of roles she is offered is diminishing. Her fortunes seem to vary over the course of the series. Sometimes, she has consistent work and appears to be relatively wealthy, other times, she scrambles to find and keep jobs, and seems to be struggling financially; this inconsistency the most successful actors tend to have their professional ups and downs, both financially and creatively.

What say you guys. She's really not that interesting of a person, but str8 dudes love having a piece like her on their arm.

Do you think it would be stupid to go on sedatives because I can't handle aging?

I'll be 45 soon and can't stand the thought of being middle aged. There's just nothing to look forward to anymore. I've never taken any mental medications in my life, but the sadness of aging is overwhelming me. I'm not happy with my life, I've wasted so much time, and now it's too late to change anything significant. Also, I look like shit. I was never attractive, but my skin was firm and now it's getting saggy and I can't stand it. I'm getting lazier too and lack the energy I once had. I'm so depressed every day over this because I think about it from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep.

I'm not ready to be old yet, but according to society and the media, I'm middle aged and over the hill and that's it, game over, sit down. I knew it was coming, but for years I've been in denial, but it's really wearing me out. There's a new nightclub that opened in my city, and I'd like to go, but feel way too old even though I really want to because I haven't had a good night out in ages. Also, I don't have a lot of friends and anyone I do know is boring and married, and MIDDLE AGED. No young person would want to become my friend.

I got even more fed up last night because I went looking through a travel agency brochure for group holidays, you know the ones where you can go with a group of strangers on a bus, so you don't need to bring your own friends. Anyway, some of the holidays are categorized by age, like 18-24, 25-34, 35-40, 40 plus, and beyond. Seeing those numbers makes me feel sick and unwell. What if I don't want to hang out with old people? I just......I don't even know what to say.

Just feeling kinda frozen

Hey there, I know this is usually NOT the place to come for insightful, meaningful insight (and tbh, that’s why we kinda love it sometimes, right), yet I find myself throwing out a thread… baring my soul and insecurity to the wolves. Ughhhh. Well, here goes….

I’m a mid 50’s guy, who’s been off work for about a year. Financially, I’m doing ok. And could continue like this for a while, but I’m seeing my savings dwindle down… and it’s been long enough. I just really feel almost frozen. It’s the only way I know how to describe it. I know I should look for a job, or retraining, or even look into career counselling…. but I’m honestly just stuck. I spend my days not really wanting to do anything. I sit at home, watch tv, run errands, and surf for a hookup. This is not how I pictured my life. I am attached (in an open relationship), and he’s supportive, but I don’t really know if he realizes how I feel. I could dismiss it as just being lazy, but it’s something else. I do suffer from ADHD, and have battled with depression in the past, and I’m wondering…. should I speak to someone professionally about this? Or…. am I just using this as an excuse to not return to work. Any insight into this, or maybe has anyone else felt like this?

Classic Film: BLOWING WILD w/Barbara Stanwyck and Gary Cooper

Directed by Hugo Fregonese, a tale of oil and lust in South America. I adore her, but this one is one of Barbara’s worst 50s movies. She looks terrible and so does Gary Cooper - the drinking and smoking was catching up with them both. Anthony Quinn is decent as the husband she wanted to leave for Gary’s character. Ruth Roman costars as a rival for Gary Cooper’s affections. The dialogue sucks and the plot is so weak that it’s nonexistent. Not even Barbara’s supernatural ability to rise above bad material can save this mess. An okay theme song by Frankie Lane.

Amal Clooney 'Isn't Impressed' by Brad Pitt's Girlfriend Ines de Ramon

Sources claim Amal Clooney is not a huge fan of Brad Pitt’s girlfriend, Ines de Ramon, which might make things a little awkward for her husband, George Clooney, who has a well-documented close friendship with Pitt.

A source who claims to have insider knowledge spoke exclusively to In Touch to allege that Amal, 46, “isn’t impressed” by Brad’s girlfriend of two years, a jewelry designer from Switzerland. “She thinks Ines doesn’t really work that hard in the jewelry business and tries to be someone that she’s not,” claims the insider. “She considers her a social climber out to snag a rich man.”

“Amal just hopes Brad’s careful and doesn’t move too fast,” the source claims, adding that Ines has allegedly noticed the UN lawyer’s frostiness. “She’s tried for Brad’s sake to be friendly but all she’s getting is the brush-off,” the insider claimed. “She knows how close Brad is to George, so she’s not making a big deal of it — she’s not stupid.”

Zach Galligan- a Vintage Beefcake (of sorts)

Zachary Wolfe Galligan was born on February 14, 1964 in New York City, New York. His mother was a psychologist and his father was a lawyer who also was a founding partner of the law firm of Dickstein Shapiro. He grew up on the Upper West Side and went to The Collegiate School. During his Junior year of HS he was approached and asked to audition for the film Taps. He went to the audition and didn’t land the role but did land himself an agent that day.

After graduating HS in 1982, he began attending Columbia University while also auditioning for film roles.

In 1984 he landed his debut role in “Nothing Lasts Forever”, a film with Bill Murray. The film ended up getting shelved and never seeing the light of day. Later that year he starred in his second film (but debut film to the public), “Gremlins”, a role he beat out Kevin Bacon, Emilio Estevez and Judd Nelson for. The film turned out to be his big break, becoming a massive commercial and cultural success and becoming the third highest grossing film of 1984.

During that time Galligan was asked to audition for the lead role in “Back to the Future”. He would have had to fly out to LA to audition and meet with people etc. His parents objected to this because he was in the middle of classes at Columbia and they felt he wasn’t taking school serious enough. They wanted him to focus on school more so he can have a stead career one day if acting doesn’t work out and were strong believers in the importance of higher education. He obliged and decided to send in a videotape audition. He never heard back from the casting. He knew not being able to audition in person blew his chances.

In 1985, he played the doomed teenager Rick Brogan in Surviving, an acclaimed TV movie that featured Ellen Burstyn and Marsha Mason (as well as a young River Phoenix), and landed him on the cover of People magazine with co-star Molly Ringwald.

1986 brought his Broadway debut, replacing Matthew Broderick in Neil Simon’s Tony winning play Biloxi Blues.

In 1988, he fully dropped out of Columbia and he moved to Los Angeles. He starred as Mark Loftmore in the horror comedy Waxwork.

In 1990 he reprised his role in “Gremlins 2” as well as his role in “Waxwork 2”. Gremlins 2 did poorly at the box office, leading Hollywood to stop offering Galligan roles. He spent the next decade hoping (in vain) for another big break. “My days involved waiting for an audition, working out at the gym and partying,” he recalls. “I had a blast in the 90’s, perhaps too much fun, and maybe I should have worked a lot harder and partied a lot less, but I definitely don’t regret the 12 years I spent living out in LA.” He worked in straight to VHS films or low budget B films for years after Gremlins 2 failed.

In 1996, 14 years after starting his college career, and 14 years of aborted semesters, missed classes and multiple relocations, Zach moved back to NYC and graduated from Columbia University with a B.A. in History.

In 2002, Zach returned to his theater roots with the comedy Doing Judy at the Alcazar Theater in San Francisco, and on screen has played a Brooklyn sleazoid on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, a hack playwright in Let Them Chirp Awhile (2008), and a New Orleans sheriff in Hatchet 3 (2013). In early 2021, Galligan appeared in a Mountain Dew commercial in which his Gremlins character, Billy, gives Gizmo a drink of his Mountain Dew, and will play a role in the new Gremlins animated series being made.

He works as an acting teacher for years.

HOT COP True Confessions Only

What's YOUR closest run-in with hot cops? TRUE ONLY.

Mine was back when I was much wilder. I was on my way to buy some party favors, and had to meet this dealer I didn't know at some motel in another city.

When I got there, I wondered to myself why there were wasn't anyone around, so I went to the room.

Little did I know that a police raid was taking place. They had already arrested the guy I was supposed to meet. When I knocked on the door, a policeman answered the door and "welcomed" me in.

In the room were the HOTTEST cops I had ever seen.

I actually got out of any trouble by telling them I was there only to have sex with the guy (dealer). They BOUGHT IT, and actually flirted with me HARD after telling them that. I just kept staring at the bed (to focus and hope they got the hint).

After touching me rather flirty and gently on the arm and hands, and after verifying my clean history, they let me go.

I wish now I had suggested some way I could thank them for being so nice (they were sweethearts to me)

Drifter, 2024 German film about a young man exploring all the ways to be queer in Berlin's club scene

I looked for a thread here and didn't see it. An interesting "indie" film (with quick jump cuts, episodic narrative, expectations that the viewer can figure out the timeline and developments)... cute and capable lead actor (Lorenz Hochhuth) who moves to Berlin as a 22 year old still finding his way. He loses love, finds out how many men want him, explore hustling and drugs while maintaining a certain Gen Z authenticity and even integrity. Other characters show the facets of the various subcultures in Berlin: non-binary, EDM club scene, Dom/Submissive scenes. All with some empathy and courage. Erections, blow jobs, skullfucking, timid explorations and many, many drugs... but despite its explicit sex, did not at all seem pornographic. Well made and provides a non-judgmental, non-sentimental portrayal of young folks living very sexually-active lifestyles. Curious how DLers see it....

Viral letter to American Airlines new-hire flight attendants reveal $27,000 annual salary

An employment verification letter American Airlines gives to some newly hired flight attendants documenting their salary has been circulating on Reddit, drawing attention to their low wages.

The letter states that a new American Airlines flight attendant will have a “projected annual salary of $27,315 per year before incentives and taxes” and concludes, “Any courtesy you can provide would be appreciated.”

The union representing American Airlines workers, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA), verified the authenticity of the letter, which is given to potential landlords or for other services where attendants need to verify their employment and income. The union represents 28,000 American Airlines flight attendants, and it is working on their first new contract in five years – a deal that stretches back before the pandemic and the inflation crisis.

American Airlines did not respond to CNN’s requests for comment.

Even as price increases are slowing down, the letter shows how, for some Americans, a little inflation relief isn’t nearly enough. The low wages for starting flight attendants – a job once seen as glitzy – underscores how many people are still struggling, despite what on paper looks like a strong economy and job market.

This salary is above the federal poverty line of $15,060 for a single-person household. But that’s a national level and doesn’t take into account regional price differences, including in major metro areas where the cost of living can be significantly higher.

“Poor Things”- I watched it last night and didn’t love it like everyone else seems to be 🤷🏼‍♂️

I found the film overly long and it began to feel repetitive about halfway through. The first hour or so is very interesting but by the halfway mark I found myself beginning to feel bored, something that doesn’t happen often (I usually love slower films). At 2 hours and 20 minutes, the film feels its time as opposed to films with long runtimes that fly by. The film would have benefited from being shaved down about 20 minutes at least. We don’t need to see the same thing over and over, which is what you feel is happening eventually.

However, the score, the acting, the cinematography, the art design, the costumes, the makeup, etc. are all 10 out of 10. Emma Stone is great (although I personally don’t find her to be as captivating an actress and some seem to) and it’s her most bold and different role. Willem Dafoe is amazing, which shouldn’t be shocking to anyone as he’s always good and thrives in strange character roles. Ramy Youssef was surprisingly great. I’ve only ever seen him in his show Ramy, but only watched the first season then sort of lost interest. He’s very charming in this film and very warm and endearing. I didn’t like how he always just accepted Bella’s behavior because a man shouldn’t care that a woman he loves is out getting fucked by tons of men because a womans body is her own and a man should love her anyway. It’s ok to be a man and not be ok with the woman you’re engaged to getting fucked by others, but I digress. Mark Ruffalo is the true standout here though, delivering the most fun and interesting performance in the film. He’s incredibly charismatic, charming and hysterical as Duncan Wedderburn. He definitely had the audience in laughter numerous times. There is a point in the film where he’s now gone, and when he reappears for just a brief moment there is fresh air in the room. He adds a lot to every scene he is in here, and this is coming from someone who doesn’t particularly care for Ruffalo as an actor.

Overall, a very interesting film and unique storytelling with amazing technicalities and acting but a bit too long.

Sophia Bush and Girlfriend Ashlyn Harris Cuddle in Paris

Sophia Bush and Ashlyn Harris are taking full advantage of being in the City of Love.

Bush, 41, uploaded several snaps via Instagram Stories on Friday, May 24, of the couple sight-seeing in Paris.

“Happiness looks good on you, baby,” the One Tree Hill alum captioned one slide of Harris, 38, looking at her in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Bush, who was in France for a conference per another social media upload, sported a black button-down and a pair of jeans and tied her long locks in a chic ponytail. Harris, meanwhile, opted for a gray blazer and denim jeans that she paired with a New York Yankees cap.

In one still, the soccer star wrapped her arm around Bush’s waist. In a second, she appeared to kiss Bush’s cheek while they stood on a balcony that overlooked the Eiffel Tower.

In another photo from the outing, the couple posed with actress Beanie Feldstein, composer Benj Pasek and TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney.

Bush and Harris have been linked since October 2023 following their respective splits from Grant Hughes and Ali Krieger. A source confirmed to Us Weekly at the time that Bush and Harris met at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity the previous June and developed a friendship. After both of their marriages ended, Bush and Harris’ connection turned romantic. (Bush filed for divorce from Hughes, 42, in August 2023, two months before Harris filed to end her and Krieger’s marriage.)

Bush, for her part, publicly came out as queer in April.

Elvis's granddaughter Riley Keough files lawsuit to stop Graceland foreclosure sale

Riley Keough is fighting to stop the foreclosure sale of Graceland.

The Daisy Jones & the Six actress, who became the sole trustee of her grandfather Elvis Presley’s estate after the 2023 death of her mother, Lisa Marie Presley, calls the announced court-approved sale of the famed Memphis property “fraudulent” in a court filing.

Keough filed a civil lawsuit in Tennessee’s Shelby County Chancery Court Wednesday to block Naussany Investments & Private Lending from auctioning the iconic home in a sale set for Thursday. She says the Missouri-based creditor claims it’s collecting on an unpaid $3.8 million loan taken out by Lisa Marie in 2018, which used Graceland as collateral, but no such loan exists.

MSNBC's "The Weekend" Premiers! Your thoughts?

My first reaction was how much money was spent on focus groups determining the seating arrangement. Alicia Menedez gets the center seat and center shot? I mean Michael Steele was a Governor and he is the former Chair of the RNC. Shouldn't he have gotten that seat? Or would that look too much like pimp-daddy Michael Steel and his girls?

-IMHO, it will be money well-spent should MSNBC hire a stylist for Symone Sanders-(whatever). Those body hugging knit dresses that hug her every curve (fat) are not flattering.

How much is your storage unit really costing you?

Do you have a storage unit? How about two or three? If you have one, do you even know what’s inside of it? If I gave you a pen and paper and told you to write down a list of everything you’re storing, how far could you get before being stumped? There are so many people who have storage units that are throwing thousands of dollars away every year, just because they have a hard time letting go. If this is you, let’s change that today!

As a professional organizer and declutterer, I declutter hundreds of storage units every year. People rent them with the best of intentions, “I will only keep it for 6 months until we ….”, and the next thing they know 5 years have passed and tens of thousands of dollars have been auto-deducted.

With every single storage unit I see, we are lucky if there are a handful of items that the owners actually end up wanting to keep. The rest is just stuff that we donate or trash. Without fail, by the end of the job they always say to me that they had no idea why they kept their storage unit for that long! Each client is able to turn in their lock and key, and finally stop the waste of money.

If you need a storage unit while you’re renovating your house or while you’re moving, don’t think you’re off the hook! I have clients that had me declutter storage units they rented for these purposes, then never got rid of them.They started thinking that it would be temporary, that they would only have it for a few months while transitioning.

But then a few months went by, and then a few months more, and now they have a new set of cooking utensils and a new dining room table and the old ones are long forgotten. When getting a storage unit with the idea of only having it temporarily, give yourself a deadline that you have to have it cleared by. Stick to it, and don’t let yourself be consumed by those unnecessary bills!

Then there is the case of the emotional storage units. The ones that are housing a whole life’s story within its walls, usually someone else's. The ones that were rented when a loved one passed, and you couldn’t bear to get rid of everything that they owned because it felt like losing them all over again. I’m here to tell you that your loved ones are not their stuff. Your loved ones are the memories that you cherish, the moments that you shared.

They aren’t the fancy china plates that were never eaten off of, or the collection of porcelain dolls that still kind of freak you out. Your loved one wouldn’t want this burden on you. They don’t want you to be weighed down by their stuff, and they don’t want you to be throwing your money at it unnecessarily. Honor them with your memories, and you can let the stuff go.

If you have a storage unit (or more than just one), I want you to take a good hard look at everything in there. I want you to confront those items that you haven’t seen in years, and decide if you really want to keep paying to have them someplace you don’t get to appreciate them or even use them. How much are these items worth to you? Are they worth buying them over and over and over again? That’s what you’re doing when you’re paying for a storage unit.

You are re-purchasing that item ten times over in storage fees. I know it’s hard to let go, no matter what the circumstances may be. I know that after years, even DECADES, of having this storage unit, you don’t want to face what’s inside. Grab a friend, schedule a trash pickup, and let it all go.

60 year old falls just short of the Miss Universe Argentina title

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — A 60-year-old woman saw her dreams of becoming the oldest Miss Universe contestant in history melt away in a haze of sequins and selfies Saturday at Argentina’s annual beauty pageant.

Alejandra Marisa Rodríguez, a hopital legal adviser whose entry into the competition had been cheered as a triumph over ageism in a youth-obsessed world, fell short of the Miss Argentina crown. But she did take home the title of “best face," one of several pageant categories including best evening gown, best swimsuit and most elegant.

During the contest she thanked everyone who celebrated her success in the Miss Buenos Aires competition last month. Her win there, after Miss Universe eliminated its long-standing age limit, generated a frenzy of global media attention that vaulted her from obscurity to local fame.

In an instant the soft-spoken lawyer from the city of La Plata, south of Buenos Aires, was doling out moisturizer tips to women striving to achieve her surreally smooth face and promising the public there was truth to the adage that age is just a number.

“As a result of what happened to me, I believe a new door has opened for many people who perhaps did not have it easy,” Rodríguez told The Associated Press backstage after the event, still dressed in her red cocktail dress with slits revealing her legs. “It was adventure and I had no expectations of this other than taking on a new challenge."

For the swimsuit portion of the Miss Argentina contest, Rodríguez chose a modest one-piece suit with a shawl draped over her shoulders, giving the crowd a shimmy as fans whooped and blew air horns.

But the judges preferred Magali Benejam, a 29-year-old actress and model from Cordoba who donned a skimpy blue bikini and sky-high stilettos to win “best swimsuit” and ultimately beat out the 27 other contestants to be crowned Miss Argentina.

Even Benejam's victory would have been impossible a year ago, as the pageant had long capped the age of contestants at 28. This year, for the first time in its 73-year-history, the Miss Universe contest is welcoming any participant over age 18.

For decades, the Miss Universe pageant openly described itself as an extravaganza of unmarried women in their late teens and twenties strutting around for judges to rate their looks and personalities. As more and more people found that troubling, organizers realized how far the contest trailed behind the culture.

Over recent years, as #MeToo and social justice movements swept the globe, Miss Universe raced to persuade skeptics it was more about minds and spirits than bodies.

It stripped away many controversial eligibility requirements, opening the field for married, pregnant, lesbian and transgender women, and it nixed all mentions of "beauty" from its website.

Kathy Griffin's Estranged Husband Drags Her To Court

Comedienne Kathy Griffin's divorce from her estranged husband, Randy Bick, is quickly turning into a nasty battle as he takes her to court over various demands.

In court documents obtained by The Blast, Bick requests several reliefs, including access to their marital home to retrieve his belongings, money for expenses caused after Griffin asked him to leave their home, and attorney fees.

According to the court documents, Griffin's husband, Bick, claims the actress asked him to leave their marital home on December 22, 2023, so they could "spend time apart over the Christmas holiday weekend." He notes they both "participated in a couple's therapy" the next day.

Bick then states that he only took a duffle bag with few items with him and that when he told Griffin he would be returning home, she threatened to "call the cops" on him. Bick says that after this alleged threat, Griffin filed for a divorce on December 28.

Now, he is requesting that the court order the actress to allow him back in the home to retrieve his belongings over the course of three dates of his choice and that Griffin be ordered to "reimburse [him] at least $21,000 toward his emergency expenses caused as a result of [her] removing him from the home."

Bick also wants Griffin to be "ordered to pay at least $22,337 toward [his] Attorney's Fees" and "immediately add [him] as her dependent to her SAGAFTRA healthcare insurance COBRA policy at her own expense."

New Republic Opinion Piece: Trump considering Tom Cotton for VP

The latest addition to Donald Trump’s horror show of vice presidential candidates is Senator Tom Cotton, The New York Times reports.

Trump reportedly thinks the Arkansas senator is a reliable communicator, and likes the fact that Cotton is a military veteran with undergraduate and law degrees from Harvard.

Cotton told Fox News on Monday that Trump has not discussed the vice presidency with him, and the two only discussed what the former president needs to do to be elected a second time.

“When we do talk, we talk about what it’s going to take to win this election in November—to elect President Trump to another term in the White House and elect a Republican Congress, so we can begin to repair the damage that Joe Biden’s presidency has inflicted on this country,” Cotton said.

Cotton may be on Trump’s shortlist for a different reason: his foreign policy hawkishness and itchy trigger finger.

Even before his political career began, he called for American journalists to be jailed for reporting on classified information. After becoming senator, he made a name for himself by constantly calling on the United States to attack Iran. But he’s also called for a brutal use of force domestically as well. In 2020, the Arkansas senator infamously called for invoking the Insurrection Act and sending in federal troops to quell Black Lives Matter demonstrations.

Inside Cher’s Majestic $75 Million Malibu Mansion

Cher's iconic $75M Malibu home, inspired by Venice, Italy. Photos in comments. The 77-year-old entertainment icon originally purchased the 13,126-square-foot Italian Renaissance-style estate in 1989 for $2.95 million and spent nearly five years transforming it into her dream home. The sprawling 1.73-acre property boasts breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, a tennis court, and an infinity pool. Cher's home includes a climate-controlled wig room where she stores close to 100 hairpieces, as revealed in "The Cher Scrapbook."

Designed with influences from around the world, the home features unique elements like limestone and marble imported from Italy and France, hand-wrought bronze doors, and custom hardware and tiles from Spain. It also includes a Moroccan-inspired living room, Turkish baths, and a meditation room, all curated by Cher's longtime friend and designer, Ron Wilson. Cher is estimated to be worth $360M.

Her determination and resilience in the face of setbacks and criticism led to her success. Even when her career faced dry spells or she was ridiculed, she found ways to persevere and have the "last laugh," cementing her status as a true icon.

Dr. Who Actor Blames Series Tanking Ratings on “Racists”

From there, Deggan would turn to press Gatwa for his thoughts on the mountains of criticism fans have leveled towards Davies’ aforementioned decision to focus the series’ narrative on overt sociopolitical messaging – “If you’re not writing that [in 2024], what on Earth are you doing?” the showrunner declared during a previous interview with Rolling Stone – rather than entertainment.

However, instead of earnestly actually engaging with the substance of this very specific and widespread complaint, Gatwa instead moved to paint those fans who have tuned out of Doctor Who as nothing more than anti-black racists.

“I don’t want to diminish racial aggression at all, but for me, personally, I find it fascinating that it matters so much to these people,” said the actor. “You are going to limit yourselves from a show that you love because you don’t like something about someone’s appearance. It’s just, like, really sad for them.”

"Giovanni's room" may well be the greatest gay novel ever written--it's a masterpiece, and absolutely perfectly constructed. I also really like his novel before that one, "Go Tell it On the Mountain."

I tried "Another Country" and thought it was too sprawling and unfocused--it seemed almost as if it were by another novelist who wasn't as good. I've not read the other novels, which are not as famous as the first three nor are they discussed as much (although there was a film of "If Beale Street Could Talk" a few years ago that I missed).

Best Friends Tucker and Corbin play matchmaker to their single parents

Most parents cringe at the idea of their teens getting involved in their love life. For one couple, it was the best thing that could have happened to them

Brittany, on TikTok as @_ms.britt, was a widowed mom of two when her son Tucker met his best friend Corbin, she tells PEOPLE.

"My kids' father passed away in 2015, so he hasn't been present in their life since they were 5 and 7 years old," she explains. She gave dating a try, "but nobody really stuck around for my kids."

Meanwhile, Jason was also raising two kids after separating from their mother.

"So my kids were kind of missing that father-figure role and his kids were missing that mother-figure."

When it comes to Brittany's son Tucker and Jason's son Corbin, "they look alike and act alike."

"Everything is identical with those two. They were always with me or they were always with him, so our conversations were always about the boys. We dropped the boys off to each other and picked them up. And one day, they're like, 'Hey, you want to go talk to Mr. Jason?' "

Brittany, who was a busy mom, replied, "Not unless he really needs me," which ironically, Jason did as well.

While both knew that their kids were kidding about setting them up at first, they also knew that the more time went by, the more serious they became.

Taylor Swift Music.

I listened to this chick back in 2013 when I was 33? And I SWIFTLY moved on..

This morning I took a semi deep dive.

She has 2 really good songs- Getaway Car, Cruel Summer- I added these two my playlists.. Some decent ones- Maroon, the duo with Lana... (Snow in NY, or something)

I think the best album by far is 1989.

I am left thinking WTF... Just a basic- BASIC- pop star.

I appreciate a songwriter, and this shit is solid pop. But what the fuck. Solid voice- reminds me of 1984-1989 Madonna, vocally. (Not a Madonna fan either- but not a hater)

Progressives Routed In Oregon’s Democratic Primary As Jayapal’s Sister And Portland’s DA Rejected

The sister of Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) lost her Democratic congressional primary in Oregon on Tuesday night, in which progressive candidates in general stumbled at the ballot box.

Oregon state Rep. Maxine Dexter (D) easily beat Susheela Jayapal with 51 percent of the vote to 29 percent – despite Jayapal having the backing of ‘Squad’ members like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Jamaal Bowman (D-NY).

Multnomah County’s progressive Soros DA Mike Schmidt, who serves the Portland area, also appeared to be set to lose reelection to tough-on-crime candidate Nathan Vasquez — a former Republican. As of midday Wednesday Vasquez was leading 56 to 44 with 63 percent of the vote counted. Progressive policies on crime are just the latest part of the movement’s platform to be repudiated in Oregon this year as the state repealed its three-year-old law decriminalizing drug possession for personal use back in March.

"Flying an upside-down American flag — a symbol of the so-called 'Stop the Steal' movement — clearly creates the appearance of bias," Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) Durbin told the Hill.

NJ man involved in Jan. 6 events sentenced to 12 years, verbally berates judge

WASHINGTON (AP) — A New Jersey electrician who repeatedly attacked police officers during the Jan. 6, 2021, siege at the U.S. Capitol was sentenced on Friday to 12 years in prison by a judge who called him “a menace to our society.”

Christopher Joseph Quaglin argued with and insulted U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden before and after the judge handed him one of the longest prison sentences among hundreds of Capitol riot cases.

“You're Trump's worst mistake of 2016,” Quaglin told McFadden, who was nominated to the court by then-President Donald Trump in 2017.

Quaglin, 38, joined the mob of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol. He injured a police officer when he choked and tackled him to the ground. Quaglin assaulted other officers with stolen police shields, metal bike racks and pepper spray. He clashed with police for roughly three hours while wearing an American flag-themed “Make America Great Again” sweatshirt.

“What an outrage. What a disgrace,” the judge said.

Quaglin complained about his jail conditions and pushed conspiracy theories about the Jan. 6 siege during his rambling remarks in the courtroom. He also took issue with labeling the Jan. 6 attack as an insurrection.

“If I wanted to bring an insurrection, I would have brought a long gun,” he said.

The judge, who cut him off after several minutes, told Quaglin that his combative remarks were a “really bad idea” before sentencing.

“It's a kangaroo court,” Quaglin responded.

Prosecutors urged the judge to sentence Quaglin to 14 years in prison.

Supreme Court Sides With Republicans Over South Carolina Voting Map

The case concerned a constitutional puzzle: how to distinguish the roles of race and partisanship in drawing voting maps when Black voters overwhelmingly favor Democrats.

The Supreme Court cleared the way on Thursday for South Carolina to keep using a congressional map that a lower court had deemed an unconstitutional racial gerrymander that resulted in the "bleaching of African American voters" from a district.

The conservative majority, by a 6-to-3 vote, returned the case to the lower court, handing a victory to Republicans by allowing them to maintain boundaries that helped make the district in question a party stronghold.

The immediate effect of the ruling will be limited, as the court's delay in ruling had already ensured that this year's elections would take place under the contested map. But the majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., will have an impact beyond South Carolina in the years to come, said Richard L. Hasen, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.

"Justice Alito for a court majority has once again come up with a legal framework that makes it easier for Republican states to engage in redistricting to help white Republicans maximize their political power," Professor Hasen said.

The ruling was the latest in a series of closely divided decisions on elections that are a distinctive element of the work of the court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., including ones that have amplified the role of money in politics, made it easier to restrict voting and exempted partisan gerrymandering from review in federal court.

The trend is not entirely uniform, as the court ruled last year that Alabama lawmakers had diluted the power of Black voters in drawing a congressional voting map. But the overall pattern has been to limit the oversight of elections by Congress and the federal courts, often in ways that have benefited Republicans.

In the case decided Thursday, Alexander v. South Carolina State Conference of the N.A.A.C.P., No. 22-807, the court's majority held that courts must generally credit lawmakers' assertions that their goal in redistricting was partisan, which is permissible, rather than based on race, which is not. "We start with a presumption that the legislature acted in good faith," Justice Alito wrote.

When These Israeli Soldiers Died in Gaza, Their Gay Identity Died With Them

'Noam's family just wants to bury everything and hide his identity and who he was': The death of their gay partners in Gaza meant for these bereaved partners coping with the loss alone, without support from those around them or the state

On Israel's recent Memorial Day, when family members, friends and partners of fallen soldiers visited the graves of their loved ones, there were many who were forced to remain outside the cemetery gates and mourn alone.

"I want to tell the world who he was and what he was for me – but I can't," says Dor, who lost his partner Amit in the Israel-Gaza war. "I see wives sitting shiva with the family and visiting the gravesite. I don't have that, and I miss it."

The reason Dor cannot publicly eulogize and mourn his beloved is because their relationship was a clandestine one. Like him, there are several cases known to support groups and the Israel Defense Forces of gays whose partners were killed in the war and now find themselves alone, without a supportive environment in which to share their pain and sorrow.

'I'm afraid that his story will be lost, that no one will know. I would like to reveal everything, but I'm afraid of their reaction.'

This article tells two such stories. To protect the privacy of the individuals and those near them who are in mourning, their names have been changed and certain details have been altered or deliberately left out of their accounts. Not because being gay should be something anyone needs to keep secret, but rather because of the personal requests of those interviewed.

The story of Amit and Dor started a little more than a year ago when they met over a dating app – which in many cases is virtually the only option for people in the LGBTQ community who have yet to disclose their sexual orientation. For the two men in their 20s, the option of living freely as a couple was even more complicated: they both came from conservative families and completely different parts of Israeli society.

"I always thought that when the day came that I had a serious partner, I would tell my family," says Dor. "But with Amit, the situation was more complicated. Aside from being two men, we came from different communities. My family is traditional and pretty conservative, and I worried that they would never accept it. He also kept out relationship private."

After a few months, Dor decided to introduce Amit to several of his friends who already knew he was gay. "He asked me how they reacted and how the experience was for me. I admitted that it took a load off my chest; that telling my friends was a lot easier than telling my family because if someone doesn't accept you, you can simply remove them from your life.

SONGBIRD (1978)

46 years ago this past week, Barbra Streisand released her 20th studio album for Columbia Records - her second of three 'thematic' albums produced by Gary Klein for The Entertainment Company. It was the first album under her new contract with the record label, which was up for renewal at the end of 1977. It was reported that she had to release five albums in five years, in addition to a 'Greatest Hits' album. She received $1.5M for each album recorded, and a 20% royalty on the retail price of every album sold (average retail price was $7.49 back then).

The recordings began in November, 1977 in NYC while she accompanied her boyfriend Jon Peters to New York as he began production on the film "Eyes of Laura Mars". (In addition, Streisand recorded the theme song to the movie titled 'Prisoner', but did not include it on her album). She finished recording the tracks in LA in February, 1978. The theme of the album was based on 'loneliness' (while the previous Klein album 'Superman' was based on a woman's independence' and the next album had a water theme.

The album peaked at #12 on the Hot 200 Albums Chart, and got mixed reviews by critics (some said Streisand 'played it safe' with her song selection). The album ended up being certified Platinum. The first single released in May, 1978 was the title track which peaked at #25. The next single released by Streisand was "Prisoner" which was not included on the album; it peaked at #38 that summer. In October, 1978 a duet with Neil Diamond on the track 'You Don't Bring Me Flowers' (both her and Diamond recorded solo tracks for their albums) was released, and hit #1 in December, 1978 for two non-consecutive weeks.

The album still remains a favorite among fans today. There are three tracks which were recorded for the album, but never released. Fans keep hoping it will be remastered and re-released in a 'deluxe' edition some day with the three additional tracks included.

NEW NYT/Siena poll:

“Nearly 70 percent of voters say that the country’s political and economic systems need major changes — or even to be torn down entirely.”

78% of 18-29 & Black voters are in that camp. 73% of what NYT considers “working class.”

What makes people right-handed or left-handed?

GOOD QUESTION What makes people right-handed or left-handed? minnesota By Kirsten Mitchell

April 18, 2024 / 10:28 PM CDT / CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS — What do Lebron James, David Bowie and Bill Gates all have in common? They're left-handed. While they're a minority of the population, they're not alone.

So why are we right- or left-handed? Good Question.

About 90% of people are right-handed, while 10% are left-handed.

"Some of the theories think it's because of the way our brains are wired," Dr. Nancy Segal said.

Segal says lefties often have a more dominant right side of their brain while righties have a more dominant left side of their brain. Why is still a mystery.

"Language was a very important development in human history and of course, language is in the left hemisphere and that might strengthen the right hand," Segal said.

Studies show which hand is dominant may be influenced by genetics, adverse birth events or even random chance.

She was the Sapphic Sensation of Belle Époque Paris

Picture Paris at the turn of the 20th century: a city drenched in absinthe, artistic ambition, and outrageous fashion choices. Amid the bohemian splendor of the Belle Époque, a woman named Renée Vivien, a Brit in Paris, emerged as a poetic powerhouse and an icon of Sapphic love. Move over, Oscar Wilde, it’s time we met this literary diva.

Renée Vivien, born Pauline Mary Tarn in 1877, was as enigmatic as she was extravagant. She swapped her mundane British upbringing for the artistic allure of Paris, and in doing so, transformed herself into a high-profile poetess and a beacon of lesbian chic. Vivien was known not just for her verses but for her lavish lifestyle, which included exotic pets, elaborate salons, and a wardrobe that would make anyone green with envy. At a time when women’s voices were often stifled, Renée Vivien’s verses, filled with longing and adoration for other women, were unapologetically bold.

Renée often felt she had to hide her gender publishing her first two books under the genderless pseudonym “R. Vivien” and often signed her work destined for critics with the masculine form of her name, “Rene Vivien”. She once attended a lecture with her then-girlfriend Natalie Barney, but the pair began giggling so much that they had to leave. The male lecturer was talking about an anonymously published book of love poems as the pinnacle depiction of a young man’s desire’s towards women. In actual fact, it was Viven’s book which she had written about her girlfriend, Nathalie.

Vivien’s life was as poetic as her work. She moved in the dazzling circles of Belle Époque Paris, rubbing elbows with the likes of Colette and Natalie Barney, another literary goddess of the time, with whom she had a tumultuous relationship. She wintered in Egypt and travelled through China and the Middle East, but her romantic escapades, intensely captured in her poetry, is what we’ll remember her for. She had a secret relationship with one of the Parisian Rothschilds, Baroness Hélène van Zuylen, and although the affair could not be made public because of Hélène position in society, Vivien considered herself married to the Baroness, who would ultimately break her heart. Her poetry collections, such as “Cendres et Poussières” (Ashes and Dust) and “Études et Préludes” (Studies and Preludes), are now hailed as masterpieces of early 20th-century literature. Vivien’s verses often drew on classical mythology, transforming ancient tales into modern declarations of female desire. She didn’t just write poems; she crafted a new mythos where women could be both muse and lover, goddess and mortal.

But Renée Vivien wasn’t just a poet; she was a spectacle. She kept a menagerie of exotic animals, including a pet lioness named “Djuna,” because why settle for a cat when you can have a lioness? Her fashion choices were equally extravagant, favoring flowing gowns and opulent accessories that made her look like she’d stepped out of a Pre-Raphaelite painting.

Sadly, Renée Vivien’s life was as brief as it was brilliant. In 1907, when the Baroness left Vivien for another woman, Vivien turned to alcohol and drugs. While visiting London in 1908, Vivien tried to kill herself by drinking an excess of laudanum, she barely ate began wasting away before the eyes of her friends. Colette, who was Vivien’s neighbour at the time, immortalised these troubled years of her life in The Pure and the Impure, a series of conversations with “ghosts” about sex, gender and attraction. Colette considered it her best book and one of the longest conversations takes place in Vivien’s “dark and shadowy, with incense burning like a funeral parlor”.

Britney’s New Single just dropped

It’s called ‘my cooter still itches, y'all!’ and these are the lyrics:

(Verse 1)

Oh baby, baby,

Something's wrong down there,

It's feeling kinda crazy, And I can't help but stare,

At this situation, It's a total mystery,

Been scratching like a cat, y'all, Got no clue what it could be, oh!

(Pre-Chorus)

I went to Dr. Sue, she had no clue,

Told me to cut back on the BBQ,

Now I'm standing here in Walmart's aisle, Scratching like I'm going wild!

(Chorus)

My cooter itches, y'all, And I just don't know why, It's driving me up the wall, Oh, I'm gonna cry!

Tried honey, vinegar, and even hot sauce,

But my cooter still itches, y'all!

(Verse 2) I'm texting my bestie,

She said, "Girl, it ain't right,"

She told me maybe, I should try not to fight,

The urge to hit the pharmacy, And grab some cream,

But I'm too embarrassed, To even start that scene!

(Pre-Chorus)

I went to Dr. Rick, he said, "Oh no, You gotta lay off the dick!"

Now I'm here in Dollar General's aisle, Scratchin' like I'm in denial!

(Chorus)

My cooter itches, y'all, And I just don't know why,

It's driving me up the wall, Oh, I'm gonna cry!

Tried honey, vinegar, and even hot sauce,

But my cooter still itches, y'all!

(Bridge)

Maybe it's the muddin' or the beer last night,

Could be that time I went skinny dippin' in the moonlight,

Might be the crawfish or the fried frog legs,

But I'm gonna find the answer if it kills me, I beg!

(Chorus)

My cooter itches, y'all, And I just don't know why,

It's driving me up the wall, Oh, I'm gonna cry!

Tried honey, vinegar, and even hot sauce,

But my cooter still itches, y'all!

(Outro)

My cooter itches, y'all, I need some relief,

Been prayin' to the Lord, y'all, For a miracle, please!

Till then I'll be here, In the Tractor Supply aisle,

Scratchin' my cooter, y'all, With a big ol' smile!

Uvalde victims' families sue Instagram, Call of Duty, and AR-15 manufacturer

Exactly two years after the Uvalde school massacre, families of victims Friday filed multiple state lawsuits in California and Texas against social media giant Meta, Activision — the maker of the popular video game "Call of Duty" — and Daniel Defense, the manufacturer of the AR-15 which the teen gunman used in the shooting.

The wrongful death lawsuits come just two days after the same group of 19 families reached a $2 million settlement with the city of Uvalde over the May 24, 2022, Robb Elementary School massacre, which killed 19 students and two teachers.

One of the two lawsuits was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court against both Activision and Meta – Instagram's parent company. The second lawsuit, against Daniel Defense, was filed in Uvalde District Court.

The lawsuits were filed by attorney Josh Koskoff, who is also representing the same 19 families who were part of Wednesday's $2 million settlement.

Friday's lawsuits claim that Instagram, Activision and Daniel Defense have been "partnering…in a scheme that preys upon insecure, adolescent boys," attorneys said in a news release.

Attorneys claim that Meta and Activision "enabled and emboldened firearm manufacturers' efforts to expand the market for their weapons by granting unprecedented, direct and 24/7 access to children."

The lawsuits allege that the gunman, on his 18th birthday, purchased the AR-15 used in the Uvalde shooting because "he was targeted and cultivated online by Instagram, Activision and Daniel Defense. This three-headed monster knowingly exposed him to the weapon, conditioned him to see it as a tool to solve his problems and trained him to use it," Koskoff said in a statement.

According to the lawsuits, the Uvalde gunman downloaded "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" in November 2021, and had been playing previous iterations of "Call of Duty" since he was 15 years old. The video game prominently features a model of the AR-15, known as DDM4V7, that was used in the shooting, the lawsuits allege.

"Simultaneously, on Instagram, the shooter was being courted through explicit, aggressive marketing," attorneys said. "In addition to hundreds of images depicting and venerating the thrill of combat, Daniel Defense used Instagram to extol the illegal, murderous use of its weapons."

On April 27, 2022, attorneys say, the gunman created an account with Daniel Defense and added a DDM4V7 to his online cart. Then on May 16, 2022, just 23 minutes after midnight on his 18th birthday, he purchased the weapon — just eight days before the Uvalde shooting.

In an interview with CBS News Friday, Koskoff said that the two lawsuits are "working in concert with each other."

"Instagram creates a connection between …an adolescent …and the gun and a gun company," Koskoff said. "And nobody exploited Instagram for this purpose more than Daniel Defense. If Instagram can prevent people from posting pictures of their private parts, they can prevent people from posting pictures of an AR-15. And of course, Instagram doesn't care. They don't care. All they care about is driving traffic and generating attention, drawing attention and getting their ad revenue."

In a statement provided to CBS News, an Activision spokesperson said the "Uvalde shooting was horrendous and heartbreaking in every way, and we express our deepest sympathies to the families and communities who remain impacted by this senseless act of violence. Millions of people around the world enjoy video games without turning to horrific acts."

The same group of families also said Wednesday they are filing a $500 million federal lawsuit against nearly 100 state police officers who took part in the botched law enforcement response to the shooting, along with former Robb Elementary School principal Mandy Gutierrez and Pete Arredondo, the school district's police chief who was fired months after the shooting.
