FEUD In A Nutshell Comments (0)

IMG_3367(Image by Matthew Rettenmund)

Emily Nussbaum's long look at Feud in The New Yorker is beautifully written, and she sums the whole damn thing up right here:

A woke Ryan Murphy is a tricky proposition: as anyone who watched late seasons of “Glee” knows, didactic camp can be a nightmare. “Feud” has its flaws—a jokey song cue here, blunt exposition there. But Murphy lets the contradictions sizzle: he knows that schlock can double as great art; that self-loathing can work both as a goad to ambition and as an emotional crippler. “Hollywood should be forced to look at what they’ve done to her,” Geraldine Page (Sarah Paulson) remarks of Joan Crawford late in the series, but not unkindly. Like all great horror, “Feud” loves its monsters. It’s also a lot of fun. 

Yep!

Bette Davis's Talentless Jesus Freak Of A Daughter: MOTHER PRACTICED WITCHCRAFT Comments (0)

Just realized that B.D. Hyman (who should be grateful she's being given a highly symp-aesthetic portrayal in Feud: Bette and Joan, in which she's played by gorgeous Kiernan Shipka), Bette Davis's daughter, has actually stated that her mother practiced witchcraft.

Literally, the born-again minister (!) has said her mom was a witch.

Check out Inside Edition's rehashing of this other feud ...

Break It Up: FEUD Averted Comments (0)

DSC01707*Sisters... sisters... (Images by Matthew Rettenmund)

I was invited to an early screening of Ryan Murphy's highly anticipated IMG_0026 FX series Feud: Bette and Joan at Hardware in NYC last night, all about the making of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962).

Unfortunately, there was a technical snafu that delayed the showing too long for my schedule, so like Jessica Lange's Feud co-star Susan Sarandon did with logic and reason, I abandoned ship. Rigged! Rigged!

I did not, however, keep my promise to live-tweet my disappointment, which might've been appropriate considering the animosity between the film's subjects, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. I guess my passivity may have indicated it was okay to fuck with me, fellas, but I'd like to go on the record stating it is not.

DSC01684Dude: Pixie & Bootsie

Still, I had fun with my pal, and one thing that wasn't a drag was the floor show by the talented ... let's go with ladies ... Pixie Aventura and Bootsie Lefaris. Pixie scored with the audience by combining Whitney Houston with Viola Davis (using Fences in ... let's go with ... her ... act! For a bottom, she's downright topical):

Feud: Bette and Joan airs on FX beginning March 5 at 10 p.m. In spite of how you may feel about Sarandon, I'm pretty sure you're going to watch it.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY 7 Will Be About ... The 2016 Election Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 10.47.45 AM(Video still via Bravo)

Appearing on Wednesday night's Watch What Happens Live on Bravo, Ryan Murphy was put on the spot by host Andy Cohen regarding the upcoming seventh season of his wildly popular American Horror Story.

I guess Murphy is really going for pure horror, because he confirmed the series will focus on ... the 2016 election!

In response to Cohen fishing for any info about the theme, Murphy volunteered:

Well, I don't have a title, uh, but, uh, the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election ... that we just went through. So, I think that will be itneresting for a lot of people.

Andy started to move on, but caught himself and asked if that meant someone would be playing Donald Trump on the show, to which Murphy admitted:

... uh ... maybe.

God, am I going to have to commit to watching this thing? I hear nothing but raves, but just haven't been able to commit to a series in years.

Recommended?

Keep reading for the video ...
