6-PACK โ€” Standing O For HRC + Trump's Nominees Are Human Garbage ... How's That For Unity? + State Dept. Sorry For Decades Of Anti-LGBTQ Witch Hunts + Thigh-Ay-Ay! + A Busch League Of Their Own! Comments (0)

WIDGETRaucous standing O for the Clintons at the final perf of The Color Purple on Broadway.

WIDGETTrump's nominees to major positions are blowing off the standard vetting process, refusing to file forms. Senate leader Mitch McConnell shrugs.

WIDGETTrump's national security pick Monica Crowley plagiarized her book. Politico now finds she plagiarized her PhD dissertation. Flunky, indeed.

WIDGETJohn Kerry's State Dept. issues formal apology for decades of mistreatment of LGBTQ people. Powerful, and a last gasp of sanity.

WIDGETMajor thigh revealed by hairy dude in kilt. 

WIDGETCharles Busch on whether Madonna could become another Joan Crawford โ€” in film!

A3b070e0633c401a680765f377f2e339No idea who made this, but it's everywhere on the Internet and it floors me that so many people think it's real, and proof Madonna ripped off Joan.

Dear MOMMIE DEAREST DIARY Comments (0)

Rutanya Alda's Mommie Dearest Diary gets a thorough airing by Slate, which writes exhaustively of the events leading up to the filming of Mommie Dearest, a movie about a supremely talented, nutty control freak that starred a supremely talented, nutty control freak.

From Slate:

Aldaโ€™s diary of the making of Mommie Dearest is valuable as an eyewitness account of that movie, but even if you donโ€™t care about Mommie Dearest at all, itโ€™s worth reading as a portrait of what it was like to be in spitting distance from fame in 1981 but to not be able to quite get there and to still have to worry about credit card bills and dressing to impress casting agents. Alda was put up by the production at the Chateau Marmont, where she shared a suite with her cat and Richard Bright, her actor husband. In between call times on the movie, which were often postponed or changed at the last minute due to delays caused by Dunawayโ€™s preparation process, Alda walked her cat around the chateauโ€™s pool on a leash and worried about the whereabouts and well-being of her husband, who was battling an addiction to heroin and cocaineโ€”and spending Aldaโ€™s paychecks as fast as she could bring them home.

The piece goes on to talk about the tantalizing thought that Dunaway became Crawford during the filming:

By the end of the shoot, people on set were whispering that Dunaway had lost herself in playing Joan Crawford, that she thought she was Joan Crawford. Maybe that was trueโ€”it actually aligns with Dunawayโ€™s own version of eventsโ€”but as Alda noted, the difference was that for much of her career, until vodka and bitterness overwhelmed her, Joan was savvy enough to get exactly what she wanted on a set and have the crew walk away feeling lucky to have met and worked with her. Most members of the cast and crew of Mommie Dearest walked away vowing โ€œnever again.โ€ At least, everyone thought, the movie will have been worth it.

What Ever Happened To Cyndi Lauper? Comments (0)

Cyndi Lauper has a new country album to promote, and in the course of a wide-ranging interview with the pride of PrideSource, Chris Azzopardi, she had this to say about the woman to whom she has most frequently been compared and contrastedโ€”Madonna:

You know, I always felt for me, I would've loved to do What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with her... 'cause I think that's very funny! (Laughs hysterically) ... Come on! Who do you think I'd play? I'd play Baby Janeโ€”I'd be torturin' her. Because she's always viewed as the bad girl, you know! They'd make her the good girl and I'd be the bad one. Or (we could do Joan Crawford's 1954 western-drama) Johnny Guitarโ€”she'd be the righteous one (laughs). But whatever. Who knows!

Cute. Fun facts: Cyndi is 62, Madonna is 57. Bette Davis was 53 and Joan Crawford was 57 during the filming of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?. In spite of so much good-natured and not-so-good-natured ribbing, society's impression of older women has changed drastically. After all, Madonna is still beyond relevant and Cyndi is garnering Tonys and putting out whatever kinds of albums she likes. Both are household names.

Madonna's reaction to the idea:

They Had Faces Then ... And Bob Deutsch Photographed Them Comments (0)

My pal Bob Deutsch has taken some truly incredible, intimate images of celebrities in public over the decades, some of which are the only photographs from various moments and days in the lives of top stars. He has incredibly intimate shots of Carol Burnett and Barbra Streisand, mainly because he pursued and photographed them as a true fan, back when they were just starting.

If you're in Fort Lauderdale, don't miss his exhibitionโ€”the pictures tell so many stories.
