Weekend Meme: The Wanted Manhandle One Direction, Ellen Burstyn Is a “Political Animal,” and Ben Cohen Forgot His Shirt Again

Sadly, Bee Gee Robin Gibb has been confirmed to be in a coma in London. It’s sad, but also strange, with Glee going disco this week. They had that oddly timed Whitney Houston song as well.Bee  Gees Does anyone have the whereabouts of Ryan Murphy?

Ithacapella, Premium Blend, and IC Voice Stream got together to do a a capella cover of “Born This Way” with the proceeds going to The Ali Forney Center and the Born This Way Foundation. You can find out more about the project here, and buy the song on iTunes here.

 The Hunger Games seems to be tracking to win the box office again this weekend, taking in an estimated $20 million. I’m hoping this means I can get a ticket by my next day off. The Three Stooges is heading for $17 million, and Joss Whedon’s The Cabin In the Woods is drawing $13 million.

Brad Pitt aJames Francond Angelina Jolie may have decided to get married before we all have the ability in this country, but they do have the blessing of Equality California, who says “Marriage is something that says ‘we’re a family’ in a way that nothing else can … No one has to deny that for themselves or their family to prove they are an ally and supporter of equality.”

The New Adventures of Old Christine’s Tricia O’Kelley has replaced Eureka’s Salli Richardson in Rosanne Barr’s Downwardly Mobile sitcom. Deadline says that Barr loved Richardson, but she just couldn’t get comfortable working in the multicamera sitcom format.

The topic of this article is James Franco revealing how he’s so productive, but I can’t get past the visual created by “Franco wears a prosthetic penis prop from his film Milk on his nose.”

In a move that I should have anticipated, Bill Donohue of The Catholic League is upset by the portrayal of nuns in The Three Stooges, especially the nun-kini worn by Kate Upton.  Fox has responded in a glorious fashion, “The nuns that Mr. Donohue alludes to are, in fact, caring, heroic characters in the movie, albeit within the framework of a very broad comedy. And as far as the nun attire, I think we did the audience a favor by letting Kate Upton wear the nun-kini rather than Larry David — it could have gone either way.”

In an increasingly amazing cast, Ellen Burstyn has joined the USA Network’s limited series Political Animals. Ellen will play Sigourney Weaver’s mother, “a tough Chicago broad and one-time Vegas showgirl whose biting tongue and sharp wit haven’t softened despite her daughter’s position and she’s the first one to whip open a bottle of booze to help her through aThe Wanted political evening.”

One Direction reportedly panicked when they discovered The Wanted was heading to the same recording studio they were in, because The Wanted are reportedly “tough guys” and they were worried about being manhandled. Security for the two Brit groups got together to talk it over, but suddenly The Wanted’s Max dashed past everyone, grabbed Liam (One Direction) up in a big laughing hug. You may now begin writing slashfic.

Grindr named their top cities, with New York taking Best Gay City, London taking Best International City, and Los Angeles picking up Hottest Grindr Guys (Domestic) and Tel Aviv (International). I would like a travel budget from Logo to verify these findings.

By now you’ve heard that Newark mayor Cory Booker arrived home to find his neighbor’s house on fire. Instead of watching, he dashed away from his own security, ran upstairs and rescued someone from the flames. Why is this guy not president yet?

Liam HemsworthMeanwhile, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin says he was chased by four bears that he was attempting to shoo away from his birdfeeders. Cory Booker would have four new rugs by now.

I’m just going to go ahead and take the unpopular position (again): It doesn’t matter if Maggie Gallagher is married or not, and this witch hunt by Fred Karger for her husband is vulgar and beneath the gay rights movement.

Liam Hemsworth is set to star in the spy thriller Paranoia, which could be huge if Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman sign on as rumored.


Last week I posted an image of my future ex-husband Russell Tovey with Chris Sullivan, saying it seemed he was trying to to get him drunk and take advantage of him Well, it was pointed out to me that there was another photo with my future ex-husband half naked.

There’s no way either of us can wear white on our wedding day

Speaking of shirtless, Ben Cohen is doing another photoshoot that caught my attention.

He does have a perfect chest, doesn’t he?

 Again, Ben knows what we like

 Meanwhile, Dylan O’Brien is keeping his shirt on, I’m sure much to the dismay of the Teen Wolf Facebook contest winner.

I love me some Stiles

 I get so many special offers in email, sometimes it’s the highlight of my day

 Does Ellen DeGeneres know that her DJ Tony is cheating on her with another funny lesbian?

It’s for an animal charity, Adopt Hearts, so I’m sure he’s forgiven

 The poster for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom manages creepy in a whole new way

Tom Lenk is up at Whistler making one of his quickie contest movies and found some other creative types to bond with.

I have such a Tom Lenk crush, I think it’s the hair

 Of course the truly big production this week was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, who produced Downton Sixbey (the studio he tapes in is “6B”), complete with the evil gay, Fred Armisen in drag, and Brooke Shields. I don’t think they quite captured the Dowager Countess, but it’s hard to top Dame Maggie.


Jedward teased the new video for their Eurovision song “Waterline” which features them shirtless a lot, but evidently didn’t have the budget for hair product, as their trademark locks fall a little flat.


North Carolina’s Governor Bev Perdue speaks out about why she will be voting against, Amendment One, which would write discrimination into the constitution of the state.


Dianna Agron went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to dispel rumors that she’s in a love triangle with Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift. There’s a moment in there that our sisters at AfterEllen.com may like.


This new clip from The Dictator does nothing to dispel my belief that the entire movie will just be a series of rude jokes about various groups in society. This one targets women, but I’m sure gays are in there somewhere.


Cillian Murphy and Sigourney Weaver star with Al Pacino in Red Lights, investigating paranormal happenings and psychics, but is Al Pacino too much for them to handle?


In this new clip from The Avengers, Captain America and Thor battle some seriously tough opponents, and for a minute there, I have a feeling Cap wished he was a god too.


Of course we already told you that 90s parody boy band 2Gether was getting back together for a movie, and TMZ caught up with them for an impromptu concert on the sidewalk.


Batman’s first mission didn’t go so smoothly. We all can’t be perfect, can we?


Paul McCartney’s video for “My Valentine” is nice in that it includes Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp signing along, but seriously, what’s up with Johnny? That is not a good look for him. Who gets A-List actors in a music video besides Sir Paul?


I can identify with this video. Given the choice, I’d stay at home and stay plugged into social media all the time if it weren’t for the day job. It’s probably best that I have to work outside the home as well as inside my office. And my home office is much nicer than the day job.


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
