I'm not here to talk about The Guilt Trip right now. Barbra Streisand is fun and looks radiant in it, but overall, it's a meh experience. I'd rather discuss Funny Lady, the 1975 sequel to Funny Girl, which is moody, opulent, and even more filled with Barbraisms than Richard Simmons. In fact, it be ... More >>

Kirsten's protector is ever vigilantThank God for the ballot police. But for them, five or six elected Democrats would've already committed the crime of running against Kirsten Gillibrand. Now we have the man Harry Reid obviously mistook for Barack Obama, Harold Ford Jr., illegally panhandl ... More >>
Urban myths are those bullshit celebrity gossip stories you hear as a kid and choose to believe until years later when you finally stop and say, "What the fuck was I thinking?" I'm not even going to go into the infamous gerbil one or the one with the rock star and the 17 sailors. We ALL have ... More >>
Miguel Angel Azua Garcia Come on, put on your lavender thinking caps and tell me which celeb you always thought was a sister, but it turns out he or she isn't.
