Today in Hateful

February 15, 2007

Who does this idiot think he is? After Charles Barkley and LeBron James came out supporting their fellow NBA player, John Amaechi, after he came out of the closet hateful Tim Hardaway has come out against gay men in his league.

“Well, you know, I hate gay people. I let it be known I don’t like gay people. I don’t like to be around gay people. I’m homophobic. It shouldn’t be in the world, in the United States, I don’t like it.”

Ok Tim, you don’t like gay people but it might have been a good idea to keep it to yourself. By saying this you sound ignorant and hateful. He didn’t stop at that comment though, he went on to say,

“I don’t condone it. And if people got problems with it, I’m sorry. I’m saying I can’t stand being around that person, knowing that they sleep with somebody of the same sex.”

On the subject of a gay person being on his basketball team Tim Hardaway stated,

“First of all, I wouldn’t want him on my team. And second of all, if he was on my team, you know, I would really distance myself from him because I don’t think that is right.”

Before Hardaway’s comments he was making NBA-related charitable appearances as part of the “NBA Legends” but that came to a quick end after his tirade on Miami-based radio show 790 The Ticket. Way to kill your post-basketball career Tim. Note to celebrities, the gays aren’t going away. Don’t hate on them or you’ll be sorry.


Here We Go Again

November 27, 2006

Perez Hilton continues to wage his own personal war against gay celebs who choose to remain — at least publicly — in the closet. Up today: Jodie Foster and her girlfriend, Cydney Bernard, whom Perez claims Foster has been dating for thirteen years. A quick Google search reveals that Bernard is a producer, and the two met on the set of Sommersby. Foster has two kids, and she’s never revealed who their father is.

Foster’s relationship with Bernard is well-known in Hollywood circles (in fact, it’s mentioned on both their IMDB pages), but Foster has clearly been perfectly happy keeping their relationship (and the rest of her personal life) out of the public eye. I mean, she’s Jodie Foster. She doesn’t exactly need paparazzi coverage to have a successful career.

Celebrity gossip bloggers have touched on the topic in the past, but, let’s be honest, Perez is the celebrity gossip blogger, and his readership has grown by more than 200% in the last six months. He now reaches nearly 3 million readers a day, which is approximately the number of viewers who tuned into Laguna Beach last season. I don’t expect Foster to hide from this; my guess is she’ll give a statement to People magazine next week.

Some critics claim Perez has mounted something more akin to an Inquisition than a gay pride parade with his regular outing of celebs. Is it fair of him to pull shit like this? No, no it’s not. Does it have the potential to send an extraordinarily positive message to the gay community, closeted or otherwise? Yeah. I think it does. To wax philosophic for a moment, it’s interesting that this kid from Miami who set out to talk shit about famous people in his spare time may actually have a significant cultural and historic impact for the gay community. Interesting, frightening, and pretty damn cool.

Michelle Rodriguez In Love with a Girl

November 15, 2006

Via The Advocate‘s interview with Kristanna Loken, star of Terminator 3 (although if Rodriguez tells her side of the story, it will undoubtedly be through People, our nation’s A- and B-list one-stop-shop for publicly coming out):

At first Loken, 27—who has a recurring role as lover of Shane (Katherine Moennig) on Showtime’s The L Word this season—affirmed that she’s in a relationship but wouldn’t specify the name or gender.

Then we mentioned the tantalizing stories Loken has told in past interviews about getting tight with Rodriguez when they filmed BloodRayne in Romania. Here’s what happened next.

What about all the stuff that was said about you and Michelle on the shoot?
[Laughs, then takes a deep breath] There is the $64,000 question. Um…I don’t even know how to answer that.

It seems like you both had a lot of fun partying.
Uh-huh. [Smiles, doesn’t say anything]

OK, your silence says volumes.
[Both laugh] Just don’t look upstairs, OK?

Ooh, OK. You don’t want me to print that?
You can print it. [Laughs again] The very hot housekeeper. No, just joking.

Honestly, just reading this, it doesn’t necessarily seem like she and Michelle are lovers. I mean, it’s possible the two of them got wasted and murdered several of the extras on the BloodRayne set and are storing the bodies in Kristanna’s attic, which is guarded 24/7 by Kristanna’s (very hot) housekeeper. But I guess you had to be there. The Advocate folks seem pretty confident on this one.

Yeah, I Ran a Penis on the Front Page. Does this Mean I Still Can’t Run Your Ads, iTunes? Because Sony’s Cool with It. Just Saying.

At what point did People magazine get the monopoly on celebrity coming-out stories? Anyway, meet McGay. [Pop on the Pop]

Prince Harry’s new girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, wonders aloud if woolly mammoths are extinct. Their season of Newlyweds is going to rock so hard. [CelebSlam]

The photo shoot theme for this week’s ANTM was “celebrity couples.” Demonstrating the level of taste and subtelty we have come to associate so inextricably with the weekly, hour-long pitch for Tyra Banks’ surely forthcoming magazine, the girl who came out as a lesbian the day before was asked to be — I’m serious — Ellen and Portia di Rossi. [MollyGood]

Nicole Richie prefers to spend her time in restaurants getting laid in the bathroom, mostly because it’s the farthest she can get from the food. [Cele|Bitchy]

Nicky Hilton kicks off publicity for her fashion-centric Miami hotel, Nicky O, with — what else? — full frontal male nudity. There is a joke here to illustrate that nudity has very little to do with fashion, but I am too distracted by penises to think of it. [The Superficial]

Sofia Coppola is expecting a baby girl in December. With any luck, she won’t cast the kid in Lost in Translation 3. [Celebrity Baby Blog]

Paris Hilton avoids the premiere of her new movie, National Lampoon’s Pledge This, because she doesn’t want to be associated with a film that will likely go straight to video. She really could have made that decision much earlier, like when they cast Simon Rex and Randy Spelling. [Hollywood Gossip Whores]

Jessica Biel is Kissing a Girl

I’m pretty busy today, so posting may be slow, but I figure this’ll keep you guys entertained for at least the next couple of hours. Thank you, Jessica Biel; in your desperation, I find hope.

BREAKING: Tom Cruise Still Gay

September 14, 2006

Yes, folks, it’s that time of year again! A male prostitute claims to have had a gay dalliance with Tom Cruise! And someone is using it to try to sell a book! Hollywood Interrupted was “leaked” a chapter. In it, “Big Red” talks about his sexual misadventures with Tom Cruise during the filming of Eyes Wide Shut, as well as his rendezvous with other big name stars. It’s definitely not a PG read, and it’s not in line to win either a Pulitzer or a spelling bee, but please, please try to hang in there until Red deftly compares anal intercourse with Garth Brooks to “fucking a whale.” Because, you know, how funny is that?

Picking up the Pieces: The Only Pussies Renew Their Driver License Edition

  • He’s been hit with a few shells, but apparently at no point with a car insurance policy. Rapper 50 cent is pulled over in his Lambo in NYC for making an unsafe lane change. He’s later handcuffed and taken to a police station on charges of an expired driver license, his vehicle being unregistered in NY, driving an uninsured vehicle and having that brick of heroin in the back seat. And by “having that brick of heroin in the back seat” I of course mean “being black.” Gawker’s got art.
  • Jessica Simpson’s management fires her publicist for trying to make it look like leaving Nick Lachey hasn’t become such an embarrassing misstep for the plummeting popstar. But in her defense: John Mayer, dude? Really? And when DJ AM was single?
  • How much is In-N-Out burger paying Paris Hilton? Because if I were Carl’s Jr, I’d be fucking pissed.
  • Ellen DeGeneres is hosting next year’s Oscars. I’d make one of the 8 gimme jokes here, but Defamer already took all of them.
  • Orlando Bloom and Uma Thurman? Wow, I bet that makes Kate Bosworth really hungry.

Inside the Playboy Mansion

I was driving around the city this morning, flipping through the radio stations, when a convo on Star 98.7 caught my attention. The woman being interviewed was Izabella St. James, a former live-in girlfriend of Hugh Hefner. Apparently she’s authored a tell-all, Bunny Tales: Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion. Her interview implied that perhaps — shocker! — life as one of Hef’s girlfriend’s isn’t all fast cars, fancy clothes and mind-blowing sex. She implied that Hef is possessive and controlling — the girls have a 9 pm curfew, and when they’re out in public they are always followed by guards, even to the bathroom, to insure they’re not messing around on the side (she said most of them are anyway) — she implied that Hef’s oldest son is gay and basically confirmed that his current #1 girl Holly is every bit the insane Hef-pleasing zombie she appears to be on Girls Next Door.

I’ll be picking up this book this weekend and will have any and all wonderfully juicy tidbits for you next week.

If anyone can find a link to the transcript of the STAR 98.7 interview (it aired around 8:30 am today), please send it my way.
