November Surprises: Trump's Hushed-Up Affair, Melania's Illegal Modeling Gigs Comments (0)

Late Friday, two li'l bombshells dropped regarding would-be President Trump and his trophy wife, Melania.

First, and in my mind more troubling, it is alleged that American Media, which owns and publishes National Enquirer, paid Playboy model Karen McDougal $150,000 for the story of her 2006 affair with Donald Trump.

The report, in the Wall Street Journal, alleges that McDougal had a consensual affair with Trump, and was under the impression that NE would publish the story of that affair.

Instead, David Pecker, the CEO of American Media and a longtime buddy of Trump's, never published that story and is now claiming the $150,000 was paid for McDougal's fitness columns and magazine covers as well as any life rights to the story of her affair.

Um, no—nudie models don't get paid that much for fitness columns. Not-so-nice try. And what tabloid publisher drops $150K only to decide not to use a story?

American Media has issued a denial, stating, “AMI has not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr. Trump.”

Trump's campaign said merely, “We have no knowledge of any of this,” and called McDougal's contention that she was intimate with Trump “totally untrue.”

Oh, sure, there's no fix in at NE, whose readership is like 100% Trump fans. Oh, coincidentally, the cover of NE for this week is anti-Hillary, and its website is filled with the suggestion that Hillary is a satanist, more crap about emails, stories from people who've worked for her and hate her, etc. No negative Trump news.

Separately, the AP has proof that Melania Trump lied in stating she never broke laws and only worked in the U.S. legally. Though she'd never be prosecuted for it, there is documented evidence she earned over $20,000 in the seven weeks prior to becoming legally eligible for such work, which is technically grounds for deportation.

More to the point, it flies in the face of the Trump campaign's war on “illegals.”

He fuckin' married one.

#CruzSexScandal Trends As NATIONAL ENQUIRER Alleges Multiple Affairs For Ted Cruz Comments (0)

As the war of the wives heats up, with Donald Trump attacking Ted Cruz's Heidi after a pro-Cruz pack slut-shamed Trump's wife Melania, National Enquirer weights in with a story suggesting Cruz has conducted multiple adulterous affairs.

Trump's Misogynist History

So far, the mainstream media has avoided the story, but Twitter users made #CruzSexScandal a trending topic overnight, and Trump retweeted a reference to it.

Breitbart apparently had the goods on Cruz a while back, but decided not to run with it.

I guess the media prefers to wait until the guy is almost winning or installed in the White House for maximum clicks?

Who Is Katrina Pierson?

In a bizarre twist, one of the alleged mistresses is Katrina Pierson, the lunatic spokesmodel for Trump—who liked a tweet about the scandal, then also liked tweets denying she had slept with that man.

Cruz denies, denies, denies.

KILL ALL GAYS!: Cop's Son Wanted To Execute LGBT Students In Boston Comments (0)

Isis-supporting-man

Twenty-three-year-old Alexander Ciccolo was turned in as a potential terrorist by his own dad, Boston Police Captain Robert Ciccolo, after the father feared his son had gone “off the deep end.”

Following a 10-month sting, the scumbag—calling himself Ali Al Amriki, and I am resisting a transMuslim joke here—was caught on tape plotting to execute scores of gay people on an unnamed college campus, using extreme firearms and homemade bombs.

Arrested, he will likely never be a free man again. Thanks to National Enquirer (yes, them) for the details of his court papers.

Get It Twisted Comments (0)

National Enquirer (March 9, 2015) soft-outs George Clooney with a leading cover line. Inside, the ex-lover who talks is female and the reference to the all-male parties is:

“George's boozy get-togethers with pals like Brad Pitt are legendary. Actor Danny DeVito seemed tipsy on The View in 2006, and blamed downing the Italian liqueur limoncello with George. And after polishing off a bottle of their tequila, Casamigos, with his pal and business partner Rande Gerber, George was so blasted that he slept in Rande's guest bedroom.”

Still, it's clear what NE was getting at.

NATIONAL ENQUIRER Okay With Outing Jeremy Renner Comments (0)

I'm never clear on why the media (even the tabloid media) feels secure in outing some actors while ignoring obvious closet cases galore around them, but National Enquirer has decided that Jeremy Renner is fair game—they're reporting that he was arrested for trespassing in a gay cruising area back in 2000.

Talk of the town has been that he's gay, so this is not a gasp-inducing revelation, but it does make you wonder why they go to such lengths as to get married 'n' stuff. His marriage is coming to an end amidst allegations of fraud. Guess she hadn't heard.

And for anyone about to pipe up that being gay shouldn't matter, it does matter when it's something people are not supposed to talk or write about, so there goes that argument.

Look Who's Talking!: John Travolta's Ex Spills On Their Affair Comments (0)

John-Travolta-gay-sex-National-Enquirer


Doug Gotterba, who sued for the right to write about his long relationship with John Travolta, is teasing his story in National Enquirer (August 18, 2014).

He tells NE that they met in February of 1981 when Gotterba was interviewed to be Travolta's pilot, then offered a massage (gee, that sounds familiar) that turned into more.

According to Gotterba, Travolta was into threesomes and porn and wanted to make a sex tape, which Gotterba refused. (As hot as I was for Travolta in the '80s, I wouldn't have wanted to be seen naked next to that stud at his peak either!)

Remember the iconic photo of Travolta dancing with Princess Diana? Yeah, Gotterba had sex with him that night, too.

Gotterba eventually left John when the sexual demands became incessant (a good problem to have, sounds very Divorce Court). When the two ran into each other in 1991, Gotterba recalls asking Travolta point-blank if he still liked men or if his marriage to Kelly Preston had sealed the deal for heterosexuality. Travolta allegedly replied:

“Well, Doug, I still prefer men!”

And P.S.: Before anyone moans about digging into Travolta's private life, the same issue of NE contains personal details of the lives of: Drew Barrymore, Richard Belzer, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, Courteney Cox & Johnny McDaid, Bruce Jenner, Paul McCartney, Bill Clinton, Adam Levine, Ted Danson, Justin Timberlake, Kathie Lee Gifford, Sam Ronson, Ben Affleck, Lindsay Lohan, Bar Refaeli, Sean Connery, Paris Hilton, Donald Trump, Rosie O'Donnell, Justin Bieber, Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez, Tori Spelling, Robert Wagner, a slew of dead celebs from Marilyn Monroe to David Carradine, Nicole Murphy & Michael Strahan, Amanda Knox, Eileen Davidson, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Clint Eastwood, Pamela Anderson, Rick Salomon, Kendra Wilkinson & Hank Baskett, Warren Beatty, Madonna, Joan Collins, Britt Ekland, Goldie Hawn, Michelle Phillips, Leslie Caron, Diane Keaton, Diane Sawyer, Diana Ross, Kate Jackson, Carly Simon, Mamie Van Doren, Elle Macpherson, Raquel Welch, Julie Christie, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Shirley MacLaine, Cate Blanchett, Anna Camp, Vera Farmiga, Thandie Newton and more.

Tom Cruise Will Probably Cancel His ENQUIRER Subscription...Happy? Comments (0)

Tom-Cruise-National-Enquirer-gay

Via National Enquirer (July 28, 2014): The great thing about Tom Cruise is that he totally doesn't mind speculation that he's a closet case, so National Enquirer should get away with this week's cover scot-free.

Paul-Lynde-RogerBut more seriously, this is all based on a NOVEL! Not a work of non-fiction. Although the book is a roman a clef (a term the tabloid puts in quotes and defines for its readers, BTW), The Actress by Amy Sohn is a work of fiction by a woman who never met Cruise.

Great publicity for Ms. Sohn, and probably dumb luck at that.

NE's piece has a dated feel regarding gay matters, including saying these are “nightmare rumors” and “sex slurs” and detailing his anguish at being portrayed as someone “leading a closeted homosexual life.”
