Kathy Ireland says Elizabeth Taylor ran safe house to help hiv-positive patients.

The former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model told ET that the legendary actress, who founded the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in 1991, developed a secret underground network that provided experimental HIV drugs to patients.

“Talk about fearless in her home in Bel-Air,” Ireland said. “It was a safe house. A lot of the work that she did, it was illegal, but she was saving lives. It was in a time when it was not something to do. Business associates pleaded with her, ’Leave this thing alone.'”

Matt Staver wants Kim Davis as the Time Person Of The Year.

“Who more than Kim Davis has influenced the news in the past year? Kim Davis inspired a nation and the world to fight for religious liberty when she chose a prison cell rather than sacrificing her conscience.”


Checking in on Will on Nashville, he finally got the chance to sell his song, but the prospective buyer is country star Wade Cole, who refused to have his picture taken with Will a few episodes ago.

Will is wary, but Wade assures him that he’s a “live and let live” kind of guy, but his wife is a staunch conservative, and would have disapproved. Will does some checking and discovers that Wade is actually a homo-hating bigot.

Will is in a quandary. He needs to sell his song, but doesn’t want to sell it to such a hateful person.

Unfortunately, broke straight boy roommate Avery is in a pissy mood, and tells Will he can’t afford to have principles. So Will makes his decision.

So how long will it be before family values man Wade makes a pass at Will? I’ll be shocked if this is not where this is going.


And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Troye Sivan

Last year Troye released his major label debut, the EP TRXYE, which showed his talent for electronic-based pop. It debuted on the Billboard album chart at #5, and featured the single “Happy Little Pill.”


Three years ago I presented my personal favorite Briefs list, The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s, and because if there’s one thing Hollywood has taught us, it’s that sequels and reboots and remakes are ALWAYS better then the original, we’re going to the well again with The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s Part 2: The Even More Forgotten

We’ll be spotlighting 100 more of the greatest minor hits of the decade, the songs you don’t hear on any 80’s nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty … or top forty. Hopefully these forgotten gems may ring a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provide a pop music history lesson.

At #54 is “Whisper To A Scream (Birds Fly)” by The Icicle Works

24889

British band The Icicle Works hit the chart just once, but scored a new wave/pop gem with “Whisper To A Scream (Birds Fly)” which is also known as “(Birds Fly) Whisper To A Scream.” Either way, it peaked at #37 in June 1984.
