“You know, you and I are gonna be singin' 'Aba Daba Honeymoon' when we're both a hundred years old!”

So said the late, great Debbie Reynolds to her duet partner and movie co-star Carleton Carpenter over 60 years ago, and while their final performance of the tune together was in 2012 (when she was 80 and he 86), she was right in that their indelible rendition of that old chestnut in the 1950 film Two Weeks with Love was prominently mentioned in every one of Debbie's adoring obituaries. That unforgettable performance only happened thanks to the ingenuity of “Carp,” who recalls duping his boss into thinking it had been his own idea.

Last Live Perf of “Aba Daba Honeymoon” at 5:21: 

“That was a whole big ruse,” the 90-year-old actor recalls in a phone interview from his Warwick, New York, home. “I found that sheet music in a pile on top of a piano on the set of the movie, dug that out and thought it would be fun. I put that sheet of music back underneath the whole pile with a little corner hanging out and I waited about two and a half days until Jack Cummings, who was the producer, was on his way in. I got Deb over and I pulled this out and there was someone playing the piano there and I said, 'Don’t bother with any of the beginning stuff, just start here,' and we jabbered away. He came in and walked over to where we were singing and he said, 'You know —' it was hard to keep a straight face! — 'That would be a good number for the two of you…' And I said with the straightest face ever, 'Reallllly?' The rest is history.”

Carpenter, not a household name except in the households of true cinephiles, has nonetheless Scan 5made history more than once in his 70-plus-year career, starting with the unprecedented chart success of “Aba Daba Honeymoon” and continuing with his work in early TV, spectacular runs on Broadway and Off- (he took over the lead in the original production of The Boys in the Band), his nonchalant handling of his bisexuality and, now, the publication of his detail-packed memoir, The Absolute Joy of Work: From Vermont to Broadway, Hollywood and Damn Near 'Round the World (BearManor Media, $24.95).

With typical humility, Carpenter chalks up his success to luck and pursuing an acting career with the naïveté of a kid from Vermont who showed up in Times Square 100% convinced he was right for the part — any part, some part.

He says he got his first Broadway show, Bright Boy, fresh off the bus one frigid January in 1944 at age 17. He picked up Actor's Cues for a nickel, went somewhere to grab a bite and found his calling. “They were looking for 17-to-20-year-old guys for a play and I thought, 'I’ll just go get that after lunch.' I got over there and they said it was on the top floor and when I got up there, you heard them rumble from the room and the door opened and the guy was leading somebody out the door and I was there and he said, 'You’re too old!' and took the other actor down. A guy sitting there grabbed the bottom of my heavy winter coat and said, 'They told me the same thing six months ago… and I’m still reading for the part!'”

That did it. “Off came the coat and I scrunched down behind several people and smoked three or four cigarettes and probably 35 or 40 minutes later the same guy with the slate board in his hand came over and said, 'Hey, you’re next.' I went in and read five different parts and they gave me the show and told me to go into the other room and read it, so I did. Then they told me they wanted me in the show, but they didn’t know what part, and could I come in the next morning? I left and was practically on top of Grand Central, so I picked up my bag and headed for my mother’s second cousin’s place. He asked me how I did and I said, 'I think I have a show.' He said, 'That’s nice.'”

Gay Boxer Yusaf Mack Beats Up Homophobic Twitter Troll Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-02-20 at 12.26.50 PM(Video still via TMZ Sports)

TMZ posted exclusive video of gay boxer Yusaf Mack doing what we've all wanted to do from time to time — beating the holy hell out of an online harasser.

Mack, sick of persistent anti-gay abuse from the man — confronted him in a barber shop in Philadelphia Saturday night, where he laid waste to the loser.

The beat-ee (“victim” seems overly kind) then posted more anti-gay prattle on Facebook, vowing that the two would fight again someday and stating he'd rather be beaten up than  be seen on video taking a dick up his ass.

Soccer Legend Abby Wambach Engaged To Christian Mommy Blogger Comments (0)

Via ExtraTV: Retired soccer star Abby Wambach, a two-time gold medalist, has announced she is engaged to Glennon Doyle Melton, a popular Christian mommy blogger.

The two had debuted as a couple in November, just a few months after Melton's marriage (to a man) and Wambach's own marriage (to a woman) had both ended.

With a sweet black-and-white image of their ring-adorned hands,  Melton posted, Abby and I decided to hold hands forever. First, fiercely, and forever @abbywambach.”

The announcement came days after an especially lovey-dovey post showing the women nuzzling:

In spite of her Christian identity, Melton has long been a gay-marriage advocate, as well as an outspoken critic of Not-My-President Trump's.

Killian James, a great-looking porn actor who began his career in 2013 and retired in 2016 in a cloud of controversy over allegedly drug-fueled Twitter wars, racial slurs and feuds, was reported to have died yesterday — but it may turn out that he is very much alive.

Str8UpGayPorn (Work Unfriendly) reported that Ian Greene, a friend of Killian's and a fellow performer, tweeted his grief over the death, which he found out about scond-hand; there was therefore no confirmation that Killian was deceased, as the site duly noted.

Later, Greene retweeted an image purporting to show James texting with a friend about the news, and mocking Greene for tweeting it:
