Photo(3)Michael, Bristol & her writer

Boy Culture reader Michael from D.C. attended a Bristol Palin booksigning and was dying (rightfully so) to share the results and his reasoning for going:

So I just met Bristol Palin at a book signing, and I got her to sign my True Blue Madonna bag. I justified it by saying to her, "I think you're both such divas and feminine role models." You of course may realize that this means I'm walking around with the signature of teen pregnancy's top spokeswoman on the album with "Papa Don't Preach" on it! Also, it occurred to me as I was walking home—did she know about all the insults Madonna threw at Sarah Palin during the Sticky and Sweet Tour? (Not to mention the condoms with her mom's face on them she threw out.)


Anyway, I think this is a bit funnier than glitter bombing, and totally worth pretending to act like a conservative while I was waiting in line; there were like 25 people there—the first 100 got a free book.

The other thing I told her was that she was such a great role model to young teens, showing them that if they get pregnant, it doesn't matter—"You can still win Dancing with the Stars and be rich and famous. The baby doesn't get in the way!" I think the ghostwriter might have picked up on the trolling, but I got my picture and my free book just the same.

I also met Willow Palin when I was there. I asked her about that time on Facebook she called everyone "fags." She was pretty taken aback, but she apologized to me and said she has no problems with the gays. Closure?

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Two Girls, One Cop Comments (1)

Kenneth in the (212) finally cracks that decades-old rape case involving mall security guard Monroe Ficus (JM J Bullock) from Too Close for Comfort that he's been working on. It sounds like actual rape, and not just a case of having his virginity "stolen."

Jaw-Dropper Comments (3)

Bristol Palin is saying she did have surgery...but it was just medically necessary jaw-realignment surgery. And the fact that it totally changed her face and made her look 1,000 times cuter was just an unexpected bonus.

Well, some people really will believe anything, so it's probably worth it to her to lie. But why is it so difficult for people to just 'fess up? It's like in the '60s when women would pretend they weren't coloring their hair.

Another Palin Takes It On The Chin Comments (5)

It boggles the mind that people are debating whether Bristol Palin's remarkably different face is the result of losing weight or plastic surgery. Try losing weight sometime—it doesn't give you a new chin and popped eyes. I'm not sure what else she had done, but she for sure has a chin implant and did something to her eyes or even her brow, and I'd guess she had fat sucked out of her chin area.

I think she looks quite different but prettier. Now that she's healed, she can get on disabling that fake Twitter attributed to her.

Kathy Griffin Tells Jokes, Sarah Palin Is A Joke Comments (0)

Kathy Griffin responds to Sarah Palin's stupid accusation that she is a "bully" with good humor and some good barbs. (She actually seems very mellow here.)

The Glamorous Life Comments (4)

I know I sound like a Golden Age of Hollywood geezer shaking his fist at the disheveled likes of young Dustin Hoffman and young Diane Keaton when compared to Clark Gable and Katharine Hepburn, but: These kinds of people (pictured) should not be stars. When you start deciding mundane do-nothings are celebrities, you have to read about them "reluctantly" confirming they're dating 20-year-old pipeline workers.

Ah, the escapism of it all!

The Ghost Writer Comments (10)

PreviewScreenSnapz001I'm with you, Margaret. I still haven't forgiven Mark Ballas!

I don't expect Bristol Palin to be all warm and cuddly toward Margaret Cho, her former Dancing with the Stars co-competitor who punked her by revealing allegedly insider info that Palin did the show because her mother blames her for losing the election in '08 and demanded compliance. Palin could have ignored the gossip and looked above it all or said, "I'm not sure why Margaret would be mean to me...I thought we were friends!" and seemed sympathetic. But instead, Palin's ridiculously outsourced reply to Cho—this girl is not articulate and not witty except for in her Facebook retorts? hmmm—reveals yet more questionable gay comments:
