FEUD 2: Olivia de Havilland Celebrates Turning 101 By Suing FX & Ryan Murphy Comments (0)

Via Los Angeles Times: Catherine Zeta-Jones's sub-par performance as Olivia de Havilland in FX's Feud just became even more of a liability for the series and network, inspiring a nasty lawsuit from the living legend.

Citing her right to publicity, de Havilland's suit excoriates FX and Murphy for putting false words in de Havilland's mouth and failing to compensate her.

I'm not sympathetic here. Sorry, but are we really going to decide that biopics can't exist?

Good luck, Olivia — you may have won your feud with your sister, but you're going to lose this one if it isn't settled.

P.S. It's funny that Murphy was all giddy over de Havilland's preliminary diss of his miniseries.

Hedy First — A Review Of HEDY!: THE LIFE & INVENTIONS OF HEDY LAMARR Comments (0)

I was able to catch HEDY!: The Life & Inventions of Hedy Lamarr, written and performed as a one-woman show by Heather Massie, here in NYC last night.

The show  — playing tonight at 5:15 p.m. — benefits the Intrepid Sea, 5904c5e51400002600a9c946 Air & Space Museum's GOALS for Girls Program, which is fitting since its subject is a Hollywood beauty icon who is becoming more properly known for her incredibly important frequency hopping invention.

In the show, Lamarr addresses the captive audience, narrating the story of her life in Austria, rise to fame in Hollywood, her many marriages, and — most importantly — a bit about how her WWII-time invention would go on to become the basis for so much of what we use today, including cellphones, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and many military applications.

As Hedy tells it, her invention could have ended WWII without nuclear weapons had the U.S. taken it seriously at the time. Instead, the government waited until the invention was theirs to use — with no compensation for Lamarr or her co-inventor George Antheil.

HEDY! is an informative piece, albeit one that lacks sufficient drama. Too often, it feels like a Wikipedia entry brought to life. It works best when Massie, who captures Lamarr's kooky grandeur and cerebral air, jokes with the audience, and pokes fun at herself. Was the real Lamarr so convivial? I don't know. But she was definitely ahead of her time.

Check it out here.

 
 
Trump's Swipe At Mika Brzezinski Bites Him In The Ass — Did He & Jared Kushner Brazenly Blackmail The MORNING JOE Couple? Comments (0)

Huff Post: When NMPOTUS Trump went nuclear with that ugly tweet about Mika National-Enquirer-Joe-Scarborough-Mika-BrzezinskiBrzezinksi's bleeding facelift (he sure has an issue with women and blood), who knew it would bear such fruit for his detractors?

Aside from the completely misguided liberals still clinging to the they go low, we go high mantra (which worked for the Obamas personally, but which didn't save them from having their eight years erased by Trump), the kerfuffle has now led to the allegation that when Mika and Joe Scarborough's relationship was about to be exposed by David Pecker's American Media via National Enquirer, top aides to Trump contacted the couple to warn them and demand that in order to scotch it, the couple had to call Trump personally and apologize for their coverage.

Trump is close with the vile Pecker.

It was reportedly Jared Kushner who told Scarborough he'd have to apologize to Trump for the negative coverage of his young presidency, a request which Scarborough refused. On cue, National Enquirer published a story exposing the morning co-hosts as a couple, and it if course had a sleazy slant to it.

This is the upper echelon of the White House blackmailing members of the media who had been critical of the President, and it is yet another impeachable offense.

National Enquirer has denied being a part of any such talks, a charge which is easy enough to believe, actually — Trump and his minions feel like they own the planet, let alone David Pecker, so it's not hard to believe they might negotiate first and involve Pecker later.

I wrote it on Facebook and I'll write it here — this is not like McCain or Romney or even Bush or Reagan: If you support or admire Trump you are a garbage person. End.
