Hero Martha Plimpton Calls Out Mayim Bialik for That Trash, Victim-Blaming NYTimes Op-Ed

I haven’t seen any jumpsuit/catsuit/unitard/one-piece ensembles that have changed my impression of jumpsuits/catsuits/unitards/one-piece ensembles, but I have to admit, this jumpsuit/catsuit/unitard/one-piece ensemble that Emma Stone is wearing is kind of cute… for a jumpsuit/catsuit/unitard/one-piece. — (LG)

Joe Jonas (Ummm, one of the Jonas Brothers… don’t know which one) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark of Game of Thrones) got engaged! Awwwww! You guys, I am so bad at gossip; I didn’t even know they were dating! — (Billboard)

Jason Momoa said a really stupid jackassy thing at Comic-Con back in 2011. He was dragged then and he’s been dragged again for it this past week. I don’t remember if he apologized back in 2011, but he has apologized now. — (Celebitchy)

Demi Lovato sang an absolutely gorgeous cover of «Hallelujah» for the Somos Una Voz Benefit for Puerto Rico. Seriously, even if Demi isn’t normally your jam, give this a listen. — (Teen Vogue)

This experimental version of Fahrenheit 451 is cool as hell! Or actually, hot as fuck! — (Open Culture)

TIL the Pussycat Dolls broke up. Like, almost a decade ago! Huh. Also, I learned that they were more of a prostitution ring than singers/dancers. — (Dlisted)

This isn’t available here in the States, but I may have to make one myself, because I can’t really think of anything one particular friend would enjoy more than a cheese advent calendar. Maybe a weed advent calendar… — (PureWow)

Ooooh, Nicole Kidman is her own disco ball! I mean that in a good way, though. — (GFY)

So, I know we’re all looking for ways to make things quicker and easier, every little hack helps, right? Hahahaha, ok, sure. Here’s a great one! — (Buzzfeed)

"Data tells us we’re lonelier than we have ever been…" says Alix in her four-star review of Brené Brown’s book about finding belonging, Braving the Wilderness. Though she found many of the ideas worthwhile, Alix was also concerned that Dr. Brown hasn’t spent much time talking with the disabled or neuroatypical." Our job is not to stop fighting for our beliefs, but to not let go of the humanity of others." How do you find belonging in an increasingly fractured world? (Cannonball Read 9)

This heroic working dog wouldn’t leave his goats during the fires in Northern California. His job is to protect them and he, Odin, takes it very seriously. SUCH A GOOD BOY!

Maybe you read Mayim Bialik’s NYTimes Op Ed this weekend? It was not good. tl;dr, it was victim-blaming trash, and Martha Plimpton called her out for exactly that:

DeMarcus Cousins Calls Out Lonzo Ball For “Running From” De’Aaron Fox

ESPN aired a Kings-Lakers preseason game last night in hopes of getting viewers to tune into this narrative-driven De’Aaron Fox-Lonzo Ball rivalry, but once again, Lonzo was a no-show because of an ankle injury that will reportedly cost him the rest of preseason.

DeMarcus Cousins apparently doesn’t give a damn about the injury, and chimed in on Lonzo missing another head-to-head battle with Fox on IG:

Come on, Boogie. Lonzo’s injured and it’s the damn preseason, you can keep start chirping if this trend carries on to the regular season.

Nice move, Fox, but three points on 1-6 shooting isn’t exactly wowing me:

Kesha Says Taylor Swift Is Always There When She Calls

keshacover

The year is 2017, and I’ll be honest, I can’t remember the last time someone has called my phone, besides the relentless credit collector who swears I owe $ 437 on an old phone bill. Everyone texts. Hell, some people communicate solely through Instagram comments. But apparently Kesha still uses her phone to call people. One of the people who picks up the phone, rather than stare blankly at the screen while wondering why someone is calling them, is her famous friend Taylor Swift.

Kesha – giving you Sam the Eagle’s Nashville niece on the cover – spoke to Rolling Stone to promote her latest album Rainbow. Kesha opened up about recording the record, which we all know was, to put it bluntly, a struggle. Kesha has spent the past three years fighting with her alleged abuser and music producer Dr. Luke. That many calls to your lawyer and trips to court can’t be good for a bank account, and at one point in time, TMZ was reporting that Kesha didn’t have much money left.

One of the people to come to the rescue of Kesha’s fight was Taylor Swift, who donated $ 250,000 to her last year. I don’t know if that $ 250,000 check came with a note that said, “You can pay me back by stroking my ego in a widely-distributed publication xoxo TS” or what. But Kesha said about a quarter of a million dollars worth of some very nice things about Taylor to Rolling Stone.

Swift, Kesha says, “is a fucking sweetheart. Very, very sweet, very, very genuine, extremely generous, picks up the phone every time I call her. My mom doesn’t even always pick up the phone!”

And, as for Swift’s latest controversies: “I’m not really up on my pop culture. Should I know something about it? I live in my record player.”

If Kim Kardashian read more than Instagram comments, she would have spat out a fork-full of salad at the thought of there being a person out there unfamiliar with the Snapchat snake drama.

That constant phone-answering must drive Taylor’s cats Meredith and Olivia absolutely nuts. They all settle in for a nice family night game of Candy Land with Taylor, and just as the first card is drawn, the phone rings, Taylor sees that it’s Kesha, and says, “Sorry, I’ve got to take this.” And then one of the cats looks at the other and meows, “Okay, we can agree that old Taylor was sometimes a mess, but at least she let calls go to voicemail.

JAY-Z Calls Donald Trump «a Joke — With All Disrespect» in New Interview

It’s no secret that JAY-Z isn’t a big fan of Donald Trump. The 4:44 rapper and his wife, Beyoncé, held a campaign concert for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election cycle. At the time, JAY-Z addressed Trump’s divisive comments, stating, «Once you divide us, you weaken us; we are stronger together.» On Friday, JAY-Z continued that same sentiment during an interview with BBC Radio 1.

«Until everyone is free, no one is free. Period,» JAY-Z declared. «That’s just a fact. We are all linked some kind of way. So if you oppress a certain people, everyone is in danger, karmically [sic] and in real life. If I’m being oppressed and you have this big, nice mansion, I’m coming inside there. That’s gonna happen; that’s just how life is.»

The 47-year-old rapper didn’t stop there. «I believe that we are resilient, especially us as black people and especially the culture. We’ve been through so much more than this guy,» JAY-Z told the radio station. «This guy, I’m looking at him like, man, this is a joke, with all — I can’t even say with all due respect — with all disrespect.»

JAY-Z also shared why he believes that Americans will come out stronger from Trump’s presidency. «I don’t think that this is happening if we weren’t prepared to handle it,» he said. «I’m just looking forward to what’s next after that, because usually when things are darkest, then light is on its way. I’m not fearful.»

President Obama Call’s Trump’s DACA Rollback a ‘Cruel’ ‘Political Decision’

Here’s a little of what we have learned about the Trump Administration’s decision to rescind DACA. First, Trump — according to aides — didn’t have a very good grasp of the facts before he made the decision. Second, Dreamers — effective immediately — can no longer apply for amnesty. However, the applications in the system will be honored, and current Dreamers will be able to ride out the rest of their two-year amnesty. They won’t be able to renew it, however, unless Congress acts.

In short, come March, Dreamers will have to return to the shadows; they’ll have to hide from ICE and pray they aren’t deported. Unfortunately, when Obama set up DACA, these 800,000 Dreamers who applied — and met rigorous criteria for admittance — were put in a database. Jeff Sessions and ICE will be able to use that database to locate and deport Dreamers.

It’s unconscionable. Quite a few Republicans have weighed in against Trump’s decision, although that does not mean they’ll actually be able to pass any legislation. In the meantime, President Obama has also released a statement. I have bolded the highlights.

Immigration can be a controversial topic. We all want safe, secure borders and a dynamic economy, and people of goodwill can have legitimate disagreements about how to fix our immigration system so that everybody plays by the rules.

But that’s not what the action that the White House took today is about. This is about young people who grew up in America — kids who study in our schools, young adults who are starting careers, patriots who pledge allegiance to our flag. These Dreamers are Americans in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper. They were brought to this country by their parents, sometimes even as infants. They may not know a country besides ours. They may not even know a language besides English. They often have no idea they’re undocumented until they apply for a job, or college, or a driver’s license.

Over the years, politicians of both parties have worked together to write legislation that would have told these young people — our young people — that if your parents brought you here as a child, if you’ve been here a certain number of years, and if you’re willing to go to college or serve in our military, then you’ll get a chance to stay and earn your citizenship. And for years while I was President, I asked Congress to send me such a bill.

That bill never came. And because it made no sense to expel talented, driven, patriotic young people from the only country they know solely because of the actions of their parents, my administration acted to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people, so that they could continue to contribute to our communities and our country. We did so based on the well-established legal principle of prosecutorial discretion, deployed by Democratic and Republican presidents alike, because our immigration enforcement agencies have limited resources, and it makes sense to focus those resources on those who come illegally to this country to do us harm. Deportations of criminals went up. Some 800,000 young people stepped forward, met rigorous requirements, and went through background checks. And America grew stronger as a result.

But today, that shadow has been cast over some of our best and brightest young people once again. To target these young people is wrong — because they have done nothing wrong. It is self-defeating — because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel. What if our kid’s science teacher, or our friendly neighbor turns out to be a Dreamer? Where are we supposed to send her? To a country she doesn’t know or remember, with a language she may not even speak?

Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision, and a moral question. Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn’t threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us. They are that pitcher on our kid’s softball team, that first responder who helps out his community after a disaster, that cadet in ROTC who wants nothing more than to wear the uniform of the country that gave him a chance. Kicking them out won’t lower the unemployment rate, or lighten anyone’s taxes, or raise anybody’s wages.

It is precisely because this action is contrary to our spirit, and to common sense, that business leaders, faith leaders, economists, and Americans of all political stripes called on the administration not to do what it did today. And now that the White House has shifted its responsibility for these young people to Congress, it’s up to Members of Congress to protect these young people and our future. I’m heartened by those who’ve suggested that they should. And I join my voice with the majority of Americans who hope they step up and do it with a sense of moral urgency that matches the urgency these young people feel.

Ultimately, this is about basic decency. This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we’d want our own kids to be treated. It’s about who we are as a people — and who we want to be.

What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray. What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals — that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation. That’s how America has traveled this far. That’s how, if we keep at it, we will ultimately reach that more perfect union.

Blac Chyna Calls It Quits With Her New Man Of Fifteen Seconds

Blac Chyna Leaving Project LA NIght Club In Hollywood.

It’s hard to believe that it was just last month when Rob Kardashian exposed the hell outta his baby mama Blac Chyna in their explosive breakup. Well, Chyna was unfazed and quickly moved on to some discount Chris Brown looking mutha fucka named Mechie. And no, I don’t know who or what a Mechie is either. But apparently it doesn’t matter anymore, because the Kardashian-adjacent hot mess known as Blac Chyna has laced up her Lucite heels and tipped on out of that lengthy month-and-a-half relationship due to Mechie’s alleged infidelity. Perhaps Chyna should change her name to Karma because HAHAHAHA!!!!

TMZ reports that Chyna grew tired of Mechie’s constant flirting with other women on social media. So on Monday night, the two of them got into a huge, super bad fight (which probably consisted of passive aggressive tweets and indirect Instagram posts, because that’s how the kids fight these days) and Chyna told Mechie to go back to doing whatever the hell it is he does. One thing’s for sure though, he better hook up with Blu Cantrell next, since he has Chyna’s initials BC tattooed behind his ear.  #Dumbass.

Anyway, after the breakup, Chyna was feeling bummed, so she decided to hit up a recording studio to lay down a few bars for an upcoming track. I’m sure the engineers are always happy to see her whenever she’s in the studio. Not because of her talents as a lyricist, but because Chyna can use her drum sized ass to create snares and claps while she twerks near the mic. After leaving the studio, Chyna decided it was time to give back to the community by hitting up West Hollywood strip club Ace of Diamonds. And even though stripper poles are her kryptonite, Chyna was merely there to watch and leave the dancing to the amateurs. But she wasn’t alone. TMZ adds:

She hit up (Ace of Diamonds) the same night her baby daddy’s sister, Khloe, and her NBA superstar bf, Tristan Thompson, showed up.

We’re told Khloe and BC crossed paths inside and had a brief stare down. But no one uttered a peep.

Now see, that’s how you know Khloe’s not as gangsta as she pretends to be. Because as soon as she saw Chyna she should have treated her to a very well deserved “Bitch you broke my brother’s heart!” ass whooping. Or, perhaps Pimp Mama Kris set that meeting up ahead of time so Khloe could give Chyna her monthly Keeping Our Names Relevant allowance, because you know PMK gotta keep all her hoes happy and rich. Only this time, Khloe slipped the cash in Chyna’s hand as opposed to inside her G-string.

Senator Al Franken Calls Out Neo-Nazis And Trump On National Television

We’re living in an age with proud white supremacists in the White House. It’s a terrifying time. Protesters have been injured and killed. Neo-Nazis, white nationalists and whatever else these vile racist fucks want to call themselves have taken to the streets of a liberal city with torches, guns, and riot gear to intimidate and injure. They did the latter. They failed at the former.

Politicians and people on either side of the political divide are speaking up to denounce the grotesque display «Unite The Right» brought to Charlottesville, Virginia. And yet, we can’t call that any kind of victory, because there’s still so much fighting to be done in this battle. So, we look to Senator Al Franken, a Democrat who has never shrunk from calling out fools and the morally bankrupt. And he did both on Conan. But in the wake of such tragedies, he did it with solemnity instead of fire or jokes.

Senator Franken begins by breaking down what went down in Charlottesville, Virginia. Then, he solemnly and unapologetically addresses Trump’s response, noting, «It’s vey him.»

We’re with you, Senator.

Shocker! Ex-Countess Luann Calls It Quits With Tom D’Agostino

'

Is it too late to reclaim the Countess title?! Luckily I was sitting down earlier, because People reports Luann D’Agostino and Tom D’Agostino are splitting up after seven months of marriage. What is it with all these short sentences these days?! Anthony Scaramucci only did ten days of hard time in the White House (just calling a prison sentence by its proper name!) and now this. What’s next? A seven-month presidency?! A boy can dream! Luann tweeted out the news earlier today:

A source, who was most likely Bethenny Frankel’s evil bitch of a dog Cookie, said, “They had lots of issues and really tried to make it work, but it was just obvious they weren’t on the same page.” One time they may not have been on the same page was when Tom got caught trying to play tonsil hockey last weekend with a mystery woman at Murf’s, a dive bar in Sag Harbor. Tom, you can’t go muff diving at Murf’s! Didn’t you read Class With The Countess?! It’s très très déclassé!

Tragically, Michael K pointed out to me that the Real Housewives of New York reunion has already been filmed for this season, so we won’t get to see Luann perform a song of lament while those other booze bags sit by jealous and uncomfortable in their Hervé Leger sausage-casing dresses. That being said, the only thing these fame whores like more than rolling their eyes when Bethenny tries to promote something is camera time, so I smell a re-do reunion! Or at the very least, some very tragic auto-tuned number coming to a newly created “We’ll pay you to listen to this crap” playlist on Spotify any day now.
