Oprah has cancelled The Rosie Show on her failure of a network, OWN, after it was met with plummeting ratings. Behind-the-scenes sources say Rosie O’Donnell basically blamed everyone but herself for the cancellation. Reality check: you are no longer relevant, Rosie. With that being said, you have a multi-million dollar house in one of the most exclusive real estate locals in the nation (Star Island). Please just sit back and enjoy your wealth, and reserve your angry lesbianism for your partner.
As if casting Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor weren’t enough, Lifetime is going ahead with their all-black remake of Steel Magnolias, starring Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, Queen Latifah , Jill Scott, Condola Rashad, and Adepero Oduye. I dig the cast, but making an all-black version of Steel Magnolias is kind of like making an all-white version of Roots: it just shouldn’t happen.
In the least surprising news of the days, Lindsay Lohan allegedly hit someone with her car (which would mean she violated her probation). This is one of those instances where you want to shake someone to the point of adult SIDS and say, “What the fuck is wrong with you?!”
Jason Russell, the guy behind the Kony 2012 Invisible Children video, was caught on camera last week running around in public naked, which his girlfriend claims wasn’t the result of drug use. First of all, Joseph Kony has been around since the 90s, so he’s a few decades too late. Secondly, it’s nice to see all that money that went to his anti-gay-funded organization (true story—the organization he works for profits from and gives money to anti-gay “charities”) was used dutifully… on meth. Sorry, but I’ve never seen anyone have a naked mental breakdown of his proportion that wasn’t drug and/or booze-induced.
Adam Scott admitted his heterosexual crush on Channing Tatum to Details magazine, saying, “If they made casts of asses to sell at adult stores for people to have sex with, they would use his ass.” Well, they do make casts of asses that are sold at adult stores, but wouldn’t we all just prefer a blurry, homemade video of Channing Tatum as the top and Adam Scott as the bottom?
Meghan McCain, John McCain’s daughter, says she’s “strictly dickly.” Keep in mind, this interview was in Playboy. I really want to love her pro-gay stance, but based on her father’s pandering solely to gain votes, I can’t take her or her mother’s pro-equality stance seriously.
