Matt Bomer Comes Out As A Gay Man

Actor Matt Bomer, who stars in the hit series White Collar and will be featured in the upcoming male stripper film Magic Mike, has come out as a gay man this week. Bomer has never really shied away from living his life openly and honestly but he has never actually spoken publicly about his longtime relationship with his partner Simon Halls (who is also the father of Bomer‘s 3 children). Over the weekend, Bomer was honored with an award at the Desert AIDS Project’s Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards and in his acceptance speech, acknowledged his partner and their children … essentially publicly acknowledging his homosexuality :) More »

Kate Winslet And Leo DiCaprio Preview Today in 3-D ‘Titanic’

It first hit our cinemas 15 years ago (yes, 15 years have passed since we saw that epic film about the love story on board the Titanic headed for an iceberg) but today they have released the 3-D version of the 1997 film. Can you believe that 15 years have passed? It will be officially released on April 4th but there are special screenings today as part of a Valentine’s Day preview. Kate Winslet has come out and discussed the re-release and is excited about it because a whole new generation of people will get to experience the film, but she is also aware of how much she and Leo have changed since it came out and is “slightly freaked out.” The pics from then and now definitely show lots of CHANGE (check out the pic below of Kate and Leo from 1998!) Will you go check out Titanic again? More »

Happy VD, From Me To YOU

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! Today will be a kinda bizzy day for David and me … we fly out this afternoon to NYC to spend a couple of days there before we jet off to Europe on Thursday to begin our 6 year anniversary trip. While I can think of a lot of other things I’d rather be doing on Valentine’s Day than flying cross country, I’m very happy to be celebrating another VDay with my boo. More »

Whitney Houston’s Family Prepares For Her Funeral In New Jersey

Now that the autopsy has been completed, the body of Whitney Houston has been released by the medical examiner so that the family can being preparations for the late singer’s funeral. Apparently, there was some discussion about whether Whitney would be laid to rest in Atlanta, GA (where she lived for many years before her death) or in Newark, NJ (where she grew up as a child). NJ won out and yesterday afternoon, Whitney‘s body was flown by private jet to Newark where memorial and funeral preparations are now underway. As I understand it, the family is planning a small, private wake for Whitney (possibly on Thursday) before a possible larger, more public memorial takes place at the end of the week (on Friday?) … and then the very intimate private funeral for the family will take place at noon on Saturday.

‘The Simpsons’ Celebrates 500th Episode This Week

Matt Groening’s bigger-than-iconic cartoon sitcom about a family of yellow people, which is both high and low culture, has run 23 seasons and will air it’s 500th episode on Sunday, February 19th. This is a huge achievement! Two decades ago, it was considered “dangerous” and evangelists and politicians denounced The Simpsons as “a televised toxin that weakened parental authority and coarsened the culture”. Today, it is quoted more than anything else. I’ve actually heard friends of mine use Homer’s lines to explain things in their own lives. Check out some of the pics from the The Simpsons’ 500th Episode fan party on February 8th. This week we should all celebrate Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie…true pop icons! More »
