You'll Read GOLDEN GIRLS FOREVER Many, Many Times! Comments (0)

Picture it: Your living room, late at night, Grindr's buzzing but you're blissfully unaware. Why? Because you just got a book, a book so good they named it.

If you love The Golden Girls—and let's face it, if you don't, maybe you're on the wrong site?—you will love Golden Girls Forever: An Unauthorized Look Behind the Lanai (Harper Design, $35) by Jim Colucci, and you will absolutely never regret devoting many quiet evenings to committing it to memory.

Colucci authored the already indispensable The Q Guide to the Golden Girls (Alyson, 2006)—which was specifically targeted at fancy men everywhere—but has taken a more encyclopedic approach this time around, offering 368 pages filled with internal memos; stills; on-set personal candids; interviews with “the show's creators, actors, guest stars, producers, writers, and crew members”; and even a section of tributes from famous fans like Zachary Quinto and Laverne Cox. 

As the expert on the series, Colucci was able to interview Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur in the years prior to their deaths, and also delivers a new Q&A with Betty White.

The book's greatest use is its inclusion of exhaustive summaries of every episode, which do a lot more than regurgitate IMDb factoids. Colucci offers original comments from the creatives on the making-of that serve as incredible oral histories, the likes of which few if any other TV series have ever received.

Golden Girls Forever also faithfully documents fan art and fan-appreciation events/plays, making it not just a memento of the series, but a breathlessly faithful chronicle of its impact on the greater culture.

On a more superficial level, the book is also beautifully designed, as pretty as Blanche's perky bosoms.

Take a lesson, Rose, Golden Girls Forever is how you tell a story.

AMERICAN IDOL Also-Ran La'Porsha Renae Doesn't REALLY AGREE With LGBT LIFESTYLE Comments (0)

LaPorsha-Renae-on-American-Idol-FOXLa'Porsha Renae (Video still via FOX)

Ouch!

La'Porsha Renae, probably had a lot of LGBT people rooting for her on the (please, God) final season of American Idol, but ... she's just not that into them.

In the context of disavowing Manny Pacquiao's comments calling gay people “animals,” she nonetheless worked her personal religious disapproval into the mix:

This is how I feel about the LGBT community: They are people just like us. They’re not animals as someone [Manny Pacquiao] stated before. They’re people with feelings ... I am one of the people who don’t really agree with that lifestyle. I wasn’t brought up that way. It wasn’t how I was raised. But I do have a lot of friends and a lot of people that I love dearly who are gay and homosexual and they’re such sweet, nice people. We should just respect each other’s differences and opinions and move on.

Following some social-media disdain for her backwards POV, she tweeted:

 
Kris Jenner Calls Out Caitlyn For Republican Views Comments (0)

In tonight's episode of I Am Cait—which I will continue to say is a really solid, helpful show regardless of its star's ridiculous political views—Kris Jenner called out Caitlyn's Republicanism.

Kris observed:

Sometimes you can get a little cranky. Because you're so crazy about this one thing—you are really crazy about this one thing—and no one wants to sit around and listen to this sh*t so shut the f*ck up and relax.

Caitlyn's co-stars enjoyed this comment, and Caitlyn later admitted it is “not fun” to receive so many notes from everyone around her about how she should be.

McCann Jr. called 911 to report his crime, and was found clinging to life—he'd stabbed himself after finishing off his family. He died in the hospital of his self-inflicted injuries.

Apparently, McCann Jr. had suffered a concussion playing basketball a few years ago, and is described as having been “off” ever since. His father, in a statement, linked the tragedy to his concussion and/or mental illness.
