I'm Good At This: A Last-Minute Trip To The Hollywood Show Comments (0)

My "then and now" gallery is above...

I wasn't going to attend the latest Hollywood Show in L.A. at the Westin LAX this past Saturday. I'd made up my mind that while dropping in would make all the sense in the world if I were an Angeleno, dropping in from across the frickin' country made about as much sense as the fact that Joan Collins does these things out of an actual need for cash. (See my other trips to autograph shows at #5 on this list.)

“Even my worst orgasm was right on the money.”—Woody Allen

But then I figured out a bunch of other stuff to do in L.A. and splurged, booking Monday and arriving with some goodies for a variety of the over 100 (!) scheduled stars to sign. Unfortunately, it was one of my least exciting shows, but I was still reminded of that Woody Allen quote. You know the one.

BabyJaneHaunting detail from a covered table

The show was meh because, for one thing, quite a few stars canceled, including some whose advertised presence had helped me decide to go in the first place. For example, I'd spent part of one day sourcing a fabulous Rene Auberjonois portrait from The Eyes of Laura Mars on eBay, then tracking it down in person here in NYC, only to discover that he'd canceled the night before. Apparently, Rene told a fellow celebrity guest, “I don't have any pictures to bring so I'm not going.”

Rene-AuberjonoisI will get this signed by you, Rene!

I also missed seeing Dale Bozzio, the original Lady Gaga, whose lead vocals on the Missing Persons record Spring Session M are the perfect combo of pleasing and unnerving. No matter that she's since become a crazy cat lady—I love huh!

Elliott-GouldElliott Gould was a no-show...how would he have reacted if asked to sign this?

But it's a thin line between love and hate when it comes to fandom. I overheard one attendee fuming that the gossip columnist Rona Barrett had canceled (another one I'd been so curious to meet), saying, “She canceled? What a fucking bitch! I'm dying to meet her!”

Kelli-MaroneyKelli told me my friend, a former co-star of hers, would "clean up" if they did the show in tandem.

Not having as many stars to “get” made for a leisurely show. Unfortunately, it did not make for one of my favorite shows; kudos to the organizers for rounding up so many diverse celebs, but it just so happened that the ones I was most excited to meet didn't wow me. I had precious few fun encounters...well, if we're talking about the ones with celebrities.

Here they are. I calls 'em likes I sees 'em...

I Fucking Love RuPaul* Comments (0)

RuPaul

RuPaul's Drag Race and Logo (not RuPaul himself) have apologized for offending some trans people with the use of the popular catchphrase “You've got she-mail!” and  have dropped an episode deemed offensive to some transsexuals.

Cue scornful reactions from trans activists angry with the show, who feel it was little more than lip service, and cue scornful reactions from—I would guess—the vast majority of the (primarily) gay men who watch RDR and who are responding along the lines of “lighten up,” or, as Madonna passive-aggressively responded to her “nigga” scandal, by making reference to the “word police.”

 

I have a problem with both reactions; this isn't black-and-white any more than issues of gender identity are for many people.

MolloyFirst, while Parker Marie Molloy's “I fucking hate RuPaul” tweet that predates the show's decision to cease and desist with the trans verbiage was, in my opinion, fairly criticized as unprofessional over her simultaneous reporting for The Advocate (a once and occasionally still journalistically admirable publication that nevertheless once branded Madonna its “Sissy of the Year” ahead of virulently homophobic villains all because she'd clarified that she wasn't a lesbian), there's no accounting for personal taste, so if anyone wants to fucking hate on RuPaul for whatever reason, I get it.

Cock-Blocker Jon Hamm On His Schlong: Don't Even Comments (0)
  Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-5 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-2 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-3 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-4 Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-6

Jon Hamm looks superhot on and in Men's Fitness (May 2014)...and his best asset isn't even spotlighted!

Jon-Hamm-Mens-Fitness-1

Actually, the intrepid interviewer succeeds in getting Hamm on the record about his legendary package, even if Hamm is quite dismissive of all the hype (which, to be fair, is probably mostly fueled by PhotoShop at this point):

“That's the dark side of all this [fame], I guess. As a nonfamous person, would you want people walking up to you and pointing to your dick? I can't believe I'm talking about this. But I've worn underwear every day of my life, and the fact that I'm painted as this exhibitionist is a little annoying. It's become a meme, I guess. Being someone who people want to photograph, you have to open yourself up to the positive and negative. It is what it is. If I get mad at it I'll look like a douche bag. But it's silly”

DOrisDoris day on April 4, 2014, by Jackie Joseph-Lawrence

Doris-DayDoris Day, who has been downright reclusive for much of her eighties, made a surprise appearance at this weekend's festivities marking her ninetieth birthday. Last night, she attended a tribute dinner for fans and friends in support of the Doris Day Animal Foundation.

She looked, as you can see from this lovely cell snap above by the actress Jackie Joseph-Lawrence and the shot at right from The Judy Garland Experience, radiant at 90!

Doris_DayOfficial 90th birthday snap as given to People

Closer-Doris-DayDay also released an official photo, and appeared on her balcony when fans came to serenade her, waving to them warmly.

Following hot on the heels of her engaging chat with TCM's Robert Osborne, in which she flirted with the idea of working again, it's hard not to hope that she finds some way to do a role in a movie sometime, or a TV cameo. She's a treasure, so it's nice to see her out and about.

She's even landed a magazine cover in the UK, but this link has a few ridiculously mislabeled photos that show her in the '60s but that are said to have been from the '00s.
