Race Dawn Chong Comments (12)
Rae Dawn Chong gave a truly disgusting interview about her old co-star Oprah Winfrey. I get not liking Oprah, but slamming her looks and saying she'd be a "house" N-word 60 years ago? Woman, you are in need of meds.

Jane Fonda As Nancy Reagan: Just Say "Yes" Comments (2)

Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan
Everybody who's anybody is appearing in the new Lee Daniels film The Butler, about a man who worked for every president from Ike to the Gipper—Vanessa Redgrave, Mariah Carey (please, please say they have scenes together), James Marsden, John Cusack, Robin Williams...the list goes on.

But the most interesting casting has to be Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. Here, she poses (in character) with Alan Rickman (also in character, as Ronald Reagan), director Daniels and Oprah Winfrey, who plays the titular character's wife and who tweeted this shot.

You're The Tops Comments (0)

SNL 2011. 1 who's on top
Cinesnatch called my attention to "Who's On Top?", the latest in a long line of gay-themed skits on Saturday Night Live. I agree with his write-up that it plays with stereotypical notions of masculinity. If I had a dime for every nelly guy I've met who's a strict top, I'd have enough money to pay a nelly guy to fuck me. Video is here.

Baldwin looks thinner. Mayoral run?

Madonna windsor
My sharp-eyed friend noticed that, during her appearance on one of Oprah's final shows, Madonna appeared to have been wearing a Cartier gem-set and diamond cross bracelet previously owned by the late Duchess of Windsor. The Duchess is the subject of Madonna's upcoming directorial effort W.E.


The cross bracelet was listed at 350,000 to 450,000 GBP and sold for over 600,000 to an anonymous bidder.

Looks like the identity of that bidder is no longer a mystery.

Loved Madonna on The Oprah Winfrey Show yesterday! She looked amazing and was very loose in her speech, which was supported by some cool crowd effects.

I thought it was funny that she was able to work in her Malawi issues while praising Oprah's own efforts in Africa, but then was shocked that the speech seemed to move Oprah to tears at one point. I guess I always mistakenly assumed Oprah secretly thought Madonna was a trifling bitch. Lots of love between them...
