Liz Cheney Slams Christan Bale For ‘Satan’ Comment

(AP) – Liz Cheney is not happy with how Christian Bale described playing her father during the 2019 Golden Globes. After Bale claimed his Best Actor award, he said Satan was his inspiration for playing Dick Cheney in Vice. Shortly after that, the Wyoming congresswoman tweeted that “Satan probably inspired him to do this too” with a link attached.

The link was to an article from The Independent detailing an arrest for an assault that allegedly occurred between the actor, his mother and his sister ten years ago. He has denied the claims and charges were eventually dismissed. In Vice, Liz Cheney is portrayed as turning on her lesbian sister, Mary, during her Senate run.

James Franco Skips Critics Choice Awards Amid Allegations

(Santa Monica, CA) –  Actor James Franco is laying low amid several sexual misconduct allegations. He’s the latest star to have a number of women come forward accusing him of abusing his power.

08-james-franco-tweets.nocrop.w710.h2147483647Franco skipped the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday where he won Best Actor for his role in “The Disaster Artist.” According to PEOPLE, “he’s in a really bad place” and is “only talking to a select group of people.” The accusations came to light during Franco’s win at the Golden Globes last week. “The Breakfast Club” star Ally Sheedy, actress Violet Paley and several students of Franco’s came forward with their stories after he was seen at the Globes wearing a “Times Up” pin.

But that didn’t stop him getting grilled again on late night television about the allegations.  Franco defended himself on “The Late Show” Tuesday, saying the accusations were “not accurate.” On Wednesday night, he repeated the claim on “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” saying the tweets he read were not accurate but that it’s still a conversation that needs to be had. Franco said he has his own side of the story, but added, “I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say.”

The Story Of Recy Taylor And Why You Should Know Her

(SL) – Recy Taylor died December 28th, 2017, 3 days before her 98th birthday but her story will forever live on as a staple example of the sexual abuse, rape and overall injustice that transcends as Oprah Winfrey said, every culture, geography, race, religion, politics or workplace.

In 1944, 24-year-old Recy Taylor and two friends were walking back from a late-night church service in Abbeville, Ala., when seven young white men in a car stopped them and threatened them with a gun. Taylor was abducted, blindfolded forced to enter the car, and the men drove off with her into the woods where they raped on her . They kept her for 4-5 hours and no one knows exactly what all they did to her, but it was horrific.

They warned her that if she said anything about it they would kill her.

“Some white boys took me out there and messed with me,” said Taylor in a 2011 NPR interview with journalist Michel Martin.

The brutal crime was eventually reported to the civil rights organisation, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Times Up! Only Three People Didn’t Participate In Blackout At Golden Globes, But HFP President Meher Tetna Had A Good Reason

(Beverly Hills, CA) – It looked like everyone got the memo to wear black but literally a few people.  The men even participated, but when it came to the women all but three were in line with the dress code.

The Blackout, Time Up movement was strong at the Golden Globes but a few people went against the grain. Meher Tetna, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press decided against black for cultural reasons. Saying, “When you have a celebration, you don’t wear black.”

But no word yet on why Blanca Blanco decided to wear a bright red dress with not only her leg out but her chest exposed as well. With everything that’s going on, it would’ve been nice to see her not only support the movement, but to go a little towards the demure side as well. Sex doesn’t have to be on display all the time.

The other fashion criminal was Barbara Meier who hasn’t revealed why she decided to shun the blackout idea as well. Beautiful dress…but again, if the men could stick with the dress code, they could too. This particular movement will require everyone with influence to be on the same page.

Save Us Lady O! Golden Globes Fuel #Oprah2020 Talk

(Beverly Hills, CA) –A powerful speech at last night’s 75th annual Golden Globes is fueling speculation that Oprah Winfrey could make a run for the White House. Social media exploded overnight with speculation after Oprah’s moving speech accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.

She received several standing ovations as she spoke of sexual abuse, racism and freedom of the press. The hashtag Oprah 2020 was trending almost immediately. Her longtime companion Stedman Graham seemed to only fan the flames. He told the “L.A. Times” Oprah would absolutely run for president. He added “it’s up to the people.”

kirk8f-1-webAnd what a joy to see Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas on stage at 101 years old with his daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta Jones. he said he would’ve prepared a speech but it would’ve been hard to follow up behind her lol. Your presence was more than enough Mr. Douglas!

Jones, who is married to Michael Douglas said, “In 1991, my father-in-law, this living Hollywood legend Kirk, was recognized by the Writers Guild of America for his role in ending the Hollywood blacklist. He not only hired black-listed screenwriter Dalton Trumbo to write the epic ‘Spartacus,’ he insisted that Trumbo receive proper screen credit for his work.”

“My trips around the world have taught me one thing: that movies speak a universal footage,” he said in old footage of him accepting the DeMille Award.

The tribute to Douglas included clips from some of his most famous roles, including “Spartacus,” “Lust for Life,” for which he won a Golden Globe in 1957, and “Detective Story,” which earned him a nomination in 1952. He was also nominated in 1986 for “Amos,”.

 

 

Tiffany Haddish’s Breakout Year And How She Achieved Success Off Of Merit And Not Sex

(New York, NY) – Tiffany Haddish has had one hell of a year. From her breakout role in the 100 million dollar blockbuster film ‘Girls Trip’ to being the first black female comedian to host Saturday Night Live (she originally though Whoopi Goldberg was the first) being snubbed by the Golden Globes isn’t too big of a deal considering everything else she’s accomplished.

Her book ‘The Last Black Unicorn’ is also dominating headlines possibly for some controversial content that accuses her ex of abuse. He subsequently has acquired attorney Michael Sterling to represent him against the claims in which he describes as defaming and untrue. Never the less, Tiffany has a story to tell and she stopped by the view to talk about some of it.

From foster care and bar mitzvahs to living out of her car and not taking Kevin Hart’s advice to use her looks to acquire residency with a man, I love a woman who strives off of talent and merit. Integrity is what it’s all about and as long as you don’t compromise that, one should be good!*EXCLUSIVE* Kevin Hart dresses up as a chicken sign spinner while filming "Night School" *WEB MUST CALL FOR PRICING*

It’s important to note that the suggestion from Hart came after he noticed she was living out of her car. He then gave the up and coming comedian 300 dollars for a hotel room. Haddish is currently filming Kevin Hart’s latest project Night Shift.
