The View

10 02 2010

On this extremely snowy day I woke up early, still a bit jet-lagged and thinking what to do. Then it hit me, go to the View!. The studios are walking distance from our apartment here and the only other time I went it was fun. Tickets generally need to be booked 24 months in advance but I hoped a lot of people would stay home because of the weather. And I was right, could walk straight in!! I had really good seats and was sitting right in front of the ladies. Unfortunately Whoopie was snowed in and could not make it but Barbra Walters, Joy and the other were there.Last time it was all female audience this time a lot of (gay) men as well, so that was good. As guest Jackie Collin was there( and we all got a book), Tim Gunn from Project Runway being his fabulous self and as a musical guest Sade was there and boy was she good!! I love her on radio but live it is almost even better. Elisabeth was fighting with everyone, Joy was by far the funniest, Sherri was nicer to the audience and in general than I expected and Barbara seemed a little moody. All in all a great way to spent this shitty day!





GLBT News; Fred Phelps hates Lady Gaga, italian gays on hunger strike, View ladies on gays and monogamy

27 01 2010

Lady Gaga can be proud because she is the newest victim of the Westboro’s baptist Church aka the crazy Fred Phelps clan. Daughter Meghan made a parody of Poker Face in which she says Lady Gaygay, God hates Gaga and Gaga has a whorish face.(look it up on youtube, on Meghan Phelps lady Gaga) That coming from a girl with a face only the devil could love is pretty funny. If that church hates you that means you did something good. It is also pretty funny they call it satan’s music while to make this parody they must have listened to it millions of times.

Two Italian gays are on a hunger strike for marriage equality over there. One of them ended up in the hospital after being gay-bashed and they realized that they had no rights if one of them passed away. Back in November they walked into city halls with 23 other couples requesting to get married but were refused. The couple is streaming things live on the web. They have already lost energy to get out of the house and one of them has passed out a few times but they vow not to quit, even if it means death. Pretty brave but also a bit much. There are other ways.

The ladies of the View had a discussion about monogamy in gay relationships and according to Joy Behar the gays she knows were less bothered by infidelity than straight couples. Whoopie said the gays she knows do care about monogamy and even Elisabeth said she though gays care about that. I think it is for every individual different but Joy has a point. Definitely for gays from Joy’s generation cheating does not necessarily mean the end of a relationship. Men can separate sex and love better than women so I think it is a gay thing but only when there are 2 men involved. In a lesbian relationship it is a very different scenario. I also think for younger gay men with the possibility of marriage, civil unions and even having kids the views are more changing to a heterosexual relationship but it is still 2 men. Apparently most straight men cheat as well, they just don’t say it





Gossip; Justin/Jessica break up, Kimmel/Silverman sex-tape, reason Polanski arrest

1 10 2009

There are a lot of rumors going around the blogosphere that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are about to break up or already have. TMZ shot a picture of them hand in hand and denies the break but others claim Justin got a little dirty with Rihanna a short while ago. Jessica Biel is hot but she seems kinda dull, so Justin can probably get someone better. He is not super good-looking but has a hot body, is pretty funny and rich!!

Another rumor is one that might make you a little nauseous. There is a reported sex tape surfacing around from Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman getting it on at a resort on vacation a few years back. It lasts 15 minutes and sees them bumping titties and doing it missionary style. Their publicists deny, but they always do. I hope they are right!

And everybody talks about Roman Polanski and his arrest in Switzerland for the rape of a 13-year-old girl back in 1977. Kirstie Alley thinks the rapist should go to jail and Woopie Goldberg says is wasn’t rape. I wasn’t there so I don’t know if it was really rape or not, but it definitely was sex with a minor. Even though I think he should have been/be punished for this, I totally don’t understand it happening right now. I read somewhere it’s a ploy from the Switzerland to get the U.S to help them get 2 Swiss journalists out of Libya. Maybe with the help of Clinton again?? ‘This sounds like an unfair but very reasonable explanation.





Gossip; Patrick Swayze, Whitney on Oprah, Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in Liberace movie

15 09 2009

Some truly sad news to start. Actor Patrick Swayze died yesterday, age 57, after a 2-year battle with pancreatic cancer. He was only given 6 months initially by doctors but called himself a”miracle dude” after living much longer and even shooting a TV-series in the following months. He seemed to be a truly great person and has some amazing films behind his name. He played a drag queen in Too Wong Foo, Thanks for everything and who hasn’t seen the great movie Ghost ,with Whoopie Goldberg and Demi Moore. But he will be most remembered for his role in the musical Dirty Dancing. He sure made many girls and gays fall in love with him in that role, what a hunk.

Everybody was interested in the outcome of the interview between Oprah Winfrey and Whitney Houston but it wasn’t all that. Some interesting tidbits though were that Bobby spit on her during a fight and she hit him back three times under the watchful eye of their daughter. She was addicted to Bobby and could not do anything without him. He resented her more and more for her success and even cut her head of pictures and other childish things like that. Nothing we all didn’t more or less know after seeing “Being Bobby Brown”. Whitney seemed to make up answers as they spoke sometime. Will she stay sober for much longer??, my guess is no.

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon will play the lead characters in the biopic of Liberace. Now that is a movie I would like to see. And Matt Damon was apparently also behind the prank on George Clooney at the Film Festival in Venice where a man stripped and asked for a kiss.
