Beth Ferrier accused Cosby in 2006, and "lost everything"
I don’t know why I’m writing this, exactly. I think the people who are asking the question, “Why are Bill Cosby‘s accusers just now coming forward?” are not likely to be persuaded by the logic in this new story. As I’ve said, celebrity/hero worship is a helluva drug. But, ya never know. And Beth Ferrier‘s statements are also helping me better understand what is going on here. At this point I think we’re at 18, maybe 218 women who have come forward over the years and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault or rape. From what I’ve seen, the stories are all pretty much the same. Nearly all of the women were aspiring actresses, and any others were already working in the industry—women who had a lot to lose if they went up against Cosby. Click inside for more.

"It must be a fan video"
The self-proclaimed “god of fuck” Marilyn Manson, who built a career on insulting as many conservative sensibilities as possible with stunts like ripping up Bibles in concert, promoting Nazi imagery and selling merchandise depicting blasphemous imagery of Jesus Christ (to name but a few career highlights), has issued a statement denying that he has any association whatsoever with the leaked video that we saw yesterday that features Lana Del Rey being sexually assaulted by Eli Roth that has been attributed to him. Despite the fact that Roth went on the record last year to reveal that he, LDR and MM collaborated on a “sick video” that was unfit for public release, Manson wants everyone to know that he has nothing at all to do with the video that surfaced this week.

"I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."
Apple CEO Tim Cook has never made his sexuality a secret among his family, friends and co-workers but it’s not something that the man has spoken about or acknowledged publicly … before now. Back in June, Cook was accidentally outed on TV when a host on CNBC spoke openly about Tim‘s homosexuality on live television. Even after he was outed, he never denied his homosexuality … but he never actually commented on it either, again, until now. In an essay that he wrote for Bloomburg Businessweek, Tim Cook formally comes out as gay in the most public way possible telling the world, “I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.” More »

NFL Teamless once again
Sigh. In early September, we learned that the Dallas Cowboys officially signed Michael Sam to join their practice squad after he was let go from the St. Louis Rams football team. Today we learn that the Cowboys have decided to cut Sam from their team as well. Michael, as you might be well aware, became the first openly gay player in the NFL earlier this year but now … he’s teamless again :( More »
The Official Statement
Over the weekend we learned the sad news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor Nicholas Brendon got arrested in Boise, ID on charges of malicious injury to property and resisting arrest. Today we get to read the official statement that Nicky posted to his official Facebook profile where he first, apologizes for his behavior and second, explains the situation from his perspective. They then promises fans that he is planning a return to rehab. All of this is very good news, I think. More »

Royal Baby #2 will be here circa...
Catherine, Duchess of Crambridge, I feel for ya! Whenever a due date is announced (unless you’ve been concealing your pregnancy for, say, 7 months or so) it always sounds light years away. A full-term pregnancy is not 9 months folks. It’s 10 months. 40 long weeks, which I imagine feel even longer when you’re on bed rest, or suffering from severe morning sickness, like the Duchess. This morning we got the big news from Kensington Palace about the second Royal Baby’s expected time of arrival, so click inside for more!
"I’m sure Chris was kidding"
Yesterday we read interview comments made by Sex and the City star Chris Noth where he referred to Sarah Jessica Parker‘s SaTC character Carrie Bradshaw as “a whore”. Today we hear from SaTC co-creator and writer Michael Patrick King who has issued an official statement in response to Noth‘s whore comment. You see, according to King, Noth was just “kidding” when he “joked” about Carrie being “a whore” and, therefore, IT’S OK! UGH. Click below to read the full text of Michael Patrick King‘s statement as well as a statement released by SaTC writer Jenny Bicks on this “Carrie is a whore” thing. More »

"At my concerts, I make sure everybody has as good a time as possible."
So … yesterday we got to see video of Kanye West inadvertently yelling at a couple of wheelchair-bound concert goers in Sydney, Australia and today we get to hear Kanye‘s response to the release and circulation of that video. In case you are unaware, Kanye stopped his concert in Sydney and demanded that every single person in the audience stand up on their feet. He refused to resume the concert until EVERY SINGLE PERSON was standing up. He saw two people sitting down and he kept berating them from the stage until they stood up. He even sent his security detail to go find out why they were still seated after he commanded them to stand and discovered that the people sitting down were doing so because they were in wheelchairs. West performed a show in Brisbane, Aus last night and commented from the stage about the incident … and as you can imagine, he did so in spectacular Kanye West fashion. More »
