Billie Jean King Movie's Sin Of Omission + Robbie Rogers For Target + Students Riot Over Shooting Of Scout Schultz + Gay Muslim's Journey To Saudi Arabia + Cassidy Still Lying About Health Care — 6-PACK! Comments (0)

BjkTennis fan Kenneth Walsh turns in a much more nuanced review of Battle of the Sexes, the Billie Jean King/Bobby Riggs film I raved about this week. (He liked it a lot, too.)

Walsh examines the film's choice to leave out the part of King's affair with Marilyn Barnett where Barnett became a paraplegic while living in Mr. and Mrs. King's home and sued Billie Jean for palimony, effectively outing her in '81. (She would not acknowledge she is a lesbian until 1998.)

There is a lot to the story the film doesn't (can't? possibly shouldn't?) contain, but at the very least, an epilogue would've been appropriate. Keep reading for this and more of the hottest links of the day on...

Scotty Bowers: The Movie — Hollywood's Golden Age Pimp On Film Comments (0)

Scotty-bowers-setoodeh-tease_tuvibdVanity Fair still isn't quite convinced that Cary Grant and Randolph Scott were lovers. Get over it — they were.

But even if the magazine wants to err on the side of journalistic certainty, why are they referring to them as “alleged” lovers? It's not a crime. How about “reported”? The writer then claims Grant's daughter has disputed whether Grant and Scott were lovers (a daughter born decades after their affair), and yet links to a story in which the daughter doesn't even mention Scott by name. Who's a journalist now?

Anyway, Yohanda Desta's piece on Scotty Bowers, author of 2012's tell-all Full Service (full review here),  is likely to arouse your interest, considering he is the 90-plus-year-old who claims to have supplied Katharine Hepburn with girls and every gay-ish actor then-alive with boys ...

Donald Trump: The Most White President Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-09-07 at 10.23.05 AMWriting in The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates turns in the provocatively titled “The First White President” on Donald Trump.

Noting that Trump's entire political career bloomed when he became the country's birther-in-chief, Coates reminds us that Trump was once quoted as saying, “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”
