Diddy Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Shading Kendall And Kylie Jenner

Sean “Diddy” Combs is too pure for this world and we must protect him at all costs. 

The rapper and business mogul premiered his new documentary “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop,” which traces the legacy of his Bad Boy Records label, in Los Angeles Thursday night. The event boasted an impressive celebrity guest list, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, and, yes, Kendall Jenner.

Diddy shared a slew of photos from the night, but one in particular caught the internet’s attention, a short video of him posing with the 21-year-old supermodel. 

“Last night @kyliejenner #cantstopwontstop #aboutlastnight,” he wrote in the caption, accidentally tagging Jenner’s sister, Kylie Jenner, instead of her. 

He quickly corrected his mistake and  apologized for the mixup in the comments after the internet was done thoroughly high-fiving and roasting him. 

“I’m human people. I make mistakes Sorry,” he wrote.

A post shared by Diddy (@diddy) on

Last month, Diddy brutally cropped the Jenner sisters out of a photo at the Met Gala, sparking the glorious hashtag #DiddyCrop. 

He can’t be stopped now, cause he’s bad boy for life.

Why Trevor Noah Won’t Predict a Donald Trump Impeachment: ‘He’s Like a Tornado’

 

As host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah is extremely informed about the world of politics. But despite his wealth of knowledge, there is one thing he refuses to make any predictions about.

“I’ve given up predicting, nor do I ever wish to predict, the world of Donald Trump. He’s like a tornado,” says Noah, 33. “We don’t know where he’s going to be, but we know what he’s going to do. The effects of Donald Trump will be felt.”

Watch The Jess Cagle Interview: Trevor Noah, available now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to people.com/PEN, or download  the PEN app on your favorite mobile or connected TV device.

The South African comic, who took over Comedy Central’s popular late-night news satire show from Jon Stewart in 2015, sat down with PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview and admitted it can be challenging encapsulating complicated news stories and being funny.

“I still have to wake up every single morning and try to get a firm grasp of what’s happening, then pray to God that between 5 and 6 p.m., when I’m wrapping things up, the President of the United States doesn’t throw the ultimate curveball that sends me writing an entire new show,” says Noah.

While we know at least a couple of Star Wars Rebels characters were present for the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Rebels co-creator Dave Filoni cautions that we shouldn’t expect to see the animated series tackle a re-telling of the events of that film from a different perspective in the final season.

An exciting inclusion in Rogue One for fans was seeing elements from Star Wars Rebels make it into the film. Chopper makes an onscreen appearance, while a page for “General Syndulla” lets us know that Hera is on the Rebel base on Yavin right before the Battle of Scarif – and we then see the Rebels ship, the Ghost, take part in that battle.

Here’s Why Donald Trump Won’t Be Watching The Oscars

President Donald Trump likely won’t be watching the Academy Awards on Sunday night because, duh.

But we’ll let White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer share the official reason why:

I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions, and I’ve got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors’ Ball that night. Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event. And the first lady’s put a lot of time into this event, in welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital, and I have a feeling that’s where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night.

The former reality star has fired up feuds with the likes of Meryl Streep (who’s nominated) and has also gotten roasted at previous award shows, so he probably isn’t feeling chummy with show business right about now. Plus, given the anti-administration yuks that will likely spill forth at the Oscars, perhaps Trump wants to spare his ego.

While he may not tune in, we have a sneaking suspicion that the commander-in-chief won’t tune out what transpires on Oscar night. Got that, Twitter?

He apparently hasn’t been such a fan of the ceremony anyway, tweeting in 2014 that it was “amateur night” and “bullshit.” In 2015, he issued this politicized critique:

The ‘Love Actually’ Mini-Sequel Won’t Include Alan Rickman Or Emma Thompson

Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson’s storyline was perhaps the most heartbreaking of the 2003 ensemble “Love Actually.” When Harry (Rickman) attracts attention from his young secretary ― spoiler! ― his wife and the devoted mother of his children, Karen (Thompson), finds out after realizing a necklace he’d bought wasn’t a gift for her. Instead, she’d received instead a decidedly unsexy Joni Mitchell CD, and their marriage is left strained. 

Unfortunately for fans, the upcoming mini-sequel to the hit film won’t fill us in on what Harry and Karen have been up to.

According to director Richard Curtis, the new script won’t include Thompson or a tribute to Rickman, who died in 2016, per Digital Spy. It’s just too tough.

“You know, dealing with Alan is very complicated,” Curtis told the Press Association, so a tribute is “not really” part of the plan. He also confirmed the actress won’t be able to participate.

The project, announced last week, will be made in celebration of Red Nose Day, a biennial event that supports the British charity Comic Relief that Curtis co-founded in 1985. Original cast members including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Rowan Atkinson are all set to appear ― so at least we’ll find out what happened after that creepy nighttime cue-card scene between Juliet (Knightley) and her husband’s best friend, Mark. (Lincoln, who played Mark, has said his character “is a stalker.”)

“It’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later,” Curtis said in a statement last week.

It’s set to air March 24 on BBC One and May 25 on NBC.

Nicki Minaj Says ‘Racism’ Is The Reason This Designer Won’t Take Her Call

Giuseppe, what’s good? 

Nicki Minaj put the acclaimed Italian luxury shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti on blast Friday after the brand’s PR people apparently refused to take Minaj’s call. 

The rapper unleashed a tweetstorm about the incident, and here’s how it went down: 

[Editor’s note: Minaj did wear the sneakers, though it appears she wore them for Glamour in 2011.] 

The 34-year-old entertainer’s problems with Zanotti arose when she found out the designer was making capsule collections with other artists (most recently Zayn Malik and Jennifer Lopez), which would presumably give the collaborator a share of the shoe’s profits. 

Minaj claimed that because she was black, she could only “inspire” Zanotti, but not partner with him: 

Minaj retweeted a fan’s photo of some of the “Nicki” shoes that show up when you search for them in the designer’s collection: 

Toward the end of her Twitter call-out, Minaj said she wouldn’t permit this “racism and disrespect.” She called on her fans to start Tweeting or Instagramming the hashtag #GiuseppeWhatsGood, a reference to her famous line to Miley Cyrus at the MTV Awards. 

Soon enough, her #Giuseppe hashtag was trending on Twitter: 

Minaj again clarified to fans that is wasn’t about the money, “just the disrespect:”  

UPDATE, 3:21 p.m.:  Zanotti appears to have taken the “Nicki” shoes down from his website, which led to another round of tweets from Minaj: 

The Huffington Post reached out to Minaj and Zanotti and will update this post accordingly.

WATCH: Valuing What You Have to Offer (Fear that others won’t)

You have gifts and talents to share… trust me on this. But doubting the value of these gifts – and the fear that others won’t see the value – can stop you from sharing what you have to offer… or from allowing yourself to be compensated for what you do. I hope this will help you more fully appreciate what you offer, which will help others do the same.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

Keith’s performance at a concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Jan. 19 was announced Friday; he will be joined at the “Make America Great Again!

It Looks Like Andrea Bocelli Won’t Perform At Trump’s Inauguration

Just when you thought it was time to break your Andrea Bocelli CDs in two, the opera singer is reportedly not performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony, despite earlier reports. 

Whether Bocelli was ever officially slated to perform is unclear.

According to Page Six, the singer bowed to backlash from fans and is backing out of the gig.

“Bocelli said there was no way he’d take the gig . . . he was ‘getting too much heat’ and he said no,” a source told the outlet.

In response to reports, Presidential Inaugural Committee chairman Tom Barrack told CNBC Tuesday morning that the president-elect had not asked the opera singer to perform at the Jan. 20 ceremony. Barrack claims that Bocelli and his wife, who are “friends” with Trump, offered to consider performing “if it would be helpful.”

Last week it was announced that Jackie Evancho, a 16-year-old singer best known for appearing on “America’s Got Talent” at age 10, would perform the national anthem at the inauguration.

Shortly after the announcement, Evancho’s mother told TMZ that Bocelli would also perform. Later, TMZ clarified that she’d “jumped the gun” on the announcement, as the 58-year-old singer had not formally committed to the engagement. 

In November, Elton John also had to deny rumors that he was performing at Trump’s inauguration. The president-elect often played the singer’s music on the campaign trail without the British singer’s approval. 

“I’ve met Donald Trump, he was very nice to me, it’s nothing personal, his political views are his own, mine are very different, I’m not a Republican in a million years,” he said in an interview with the Guardian in February. “Why not ask Ted fucking Nugent? Or one of those fucking country stars? They’ll do it for you.” 

The Huffington Post has reached out to reps for Trump and Bocelli and will update this post accordingly.

Rob Kardashian Claims Blac Chyna Won’t Let Him See Baby Dream, Still Refers to Her as His ‘Woman’

Rob Kardashian has taken to Instagram to plead with Blac Chyna to let him see their newborn daughter Dream after she left their shared home.

After Kardashian, 29, shared footage of empty rooms in his home and claimed Chyna “took the baby, took the whole nursery we built” on Saturday, he began posting memes people had created of the couple’s apparent breakup.

“Bring Dream back to her Dad please,” Kardashian captioned one meme that depicts Chyna, 28, “stealing Christmas” dressed as the Grinch with their daughter Dream and Chyna’s 4-year-old son King (from her previous relationship with Tyga) in her bag. “She blocked me or else I would ask to see her and she has the guard gate not letting me in the gate either. I just miss baby Dream.” (In a since-deleted post, Chyna said Kardashian could come see Dream if he wanted to because he “knows where we are.”)

In another post that shows Kardashian standing alone in an empty house, he claims that although he’s sharing the comical memes, the situation is anything but humorous.

“This is all very real and serious to me and I’m trying to cheer myself up with these and they are making me laugh. So relax,” he wrote. “This wasn’t fake or some publicity stunt. Trust me. My one month old beautiful baby girl got taken from me along with my wife who left me. Been upset for days so relax. This is all very real in my life. I don’t play when it comes to my woman and my baby.”

Kardashian’s most recent post was a collage of photos of his daughter.

“Pretty Dream,” he captioned the photos. “Miss u pretty mama.”

Chyna also appeared to regain control of her Instagram account after it was hacked on Saturday, sharing a photo of her children to promote the special episode of Rob & Chyna featuring Dream’s birth.

The anonymous hacker claimed she had left Kardashian and they were going to “expose” the reality star and how she was using Kardashian while allegedly cheating on him with other men. The hacker then began to share private messages and text conversations allegedly between Chyna and her lawyer, Jaden Smith and rapper Young Thug — although they didn’t appear to show any signs of infidelity on Chyna’s part.

Chyna later confirmed that the conversations were true, and even implied that Kardashian was behind the hack in a since-deleted post.

Your Guilt-Free Guide To Last-Minute Holiday Shopping That Won’t Kill The Rainforest

By Philip Rothrock
This story is cross-posted on Ecosystem Marketplace

Have you seen Gucci’s retro “Jackie” bags, patterned after one of Jackie Kennedy’s favorites?

They’re not only lovely, but they’re made of “deforestation-free” leather.

That’s a pretty big deal, because cattle ranchers are chopping forests by the football field to produce beef and leather, which is one reason agriculture generates almost 30% of all greenhouse-gas emissions worldwide.

In the past decade, scores of companies have committed to delivering “deforestation-free” leather, and some are already making good on their promises, while others seem to be making an honest effort to do so.

But there’s a new front opening, as Canadian boutique owner Cathy Reid recently found after receiving a holiday shipment of nightgowns.

“Some of the nighties are classic cotton flannel,” she wrote on her blog. “Others are silky fabrics, soft and cozy, perfect for the cooler nights in November.”

But then a customer read the label, and found they contained something called “rayon“, which Reid soon learned is a “cellulosic fiber” made of trees.

Such fibers are more common than you’d think, and they’re supposed to be more environmentally-friendly than cotton, that ravenous vampire plant that sucks the life out of soil.

That eco-friendliness, however, is questionable – and you, as a conscientious consumer, have the power to find the answers.
2016-12-18-1482072520-1389589-TimberPulp.PNG

Seven companies have committed to improve their sourcing of wood fibers for fabrics, but none have reported progress. Here is how that’s reflected in one Supply Change profile.

The “Big Four” Deforestation Commodities

Logging for timber and pulp – which includes cellulosic fibers – is the third-leading driver of deforestation around the world, and cattle ranching – which generates leather – is number one. These, together with soy and palm, comprise the “big four” forest risk commodities responsible for most of the world’s tropical deforestation – and until recently, it was nearly impossible to know if your holiday shopping was contributing to the problem.

That started to change when manufacturers like New Balance and Louis Vuitton, as well as retailers like Inditex/Zara and C&A, started promising to chop deforestation from key commodity supply chains. Then NGOs like CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) started rating companies based on their commitments. Last year, the Forest Trend’s Supply Change project started tracking the progress that companies report toward achieving those commitments – providing in the process a fascinating glimpse into the complex, interlocking global supply chains that stretch around the world, involving cattlemen and loggers, as well as subsistence farmers and indigenous people who harvest the commodities we buy as leather, linen, and lipstick.

Keeping Tabs

Supply Change monitors hundreds of companies from around the world and across the industrial spectrum, but just 26 of these are shoe and apparel companies, and only 22 of these have promised to reduce their impact on the world’s rainforests.

That’s roughly 85% of the companies profiled by Supply Change in this sector, and almost all of those have made more than one promise – meaning that the 22 companies have generated more than 40 pledges.

Good – right?

Kind of.

Fourteen of those pledges apply to packaging – which many companies (and everyone who recycles) has committed to doing right – while just seven of them apply to clothing made with wood fiber fabrics.

By contrast, 16 apply to leather.

Those differences are no coincidence: environmentalists have been campaigning for recycled packaging since the 1960s, and many are just now waking up to cellulosic fibers. Things can, however, move fast – as we learned with leather.

2016-12-18-1482072780-4508714-DCShop.jpg

Responding to the Critics

In 2009, Greenpeace built a campaign around evidence connecting deforestation in the Amazon with cattle products sold to many large public-facing brands. This set off a ripple effect among buyers and suppliers alike, and New Balance immediately committed to stop buying shoe-leather from suppliers in the Amazon biome. ASOS, Coach and Eram Group followed a few years later.

On the cellulosic fiber front, an NGO called Canopy launched the Fashion Loved by Forests campaign, and scores of retailers and manufactures vowed to steer clear of wood products from ancient and endangered forests.

Those consumer-facing companies, however, are at the mercy of suppliers, and Canopy says that the ten largest suppliers, responsible for about 75% of global supply, are just beginning to set and implement their own sustainability commitments. Fortunately, the two largest, Aditya Birla and Lenzing, are close to wrapping up their first desktop audits of global operations. They make up around 35% of global supply and received highest scores in Canopy’s first update on viscose producers and forests.

Frustratingly, companies are only reporting progress on about half of commitments for companies in every sector tracked by Supply Change, and clothing retailer Inditex/Zara is one of those that hasn’t reported any measurable progress on its clothing commitment so far – perhaps because it’s waiting for suppliers (like Lenzing) to provide traceability.

The Design Cycle

When clothing companies decide to purge deforestation from their supply chains, they face the same challenge that we, as individuals do: namely, where to begin? After all, very few apparel companies produce their own raw materials. Instead, they’re consumers themselves, and they tend to go through predictable stages of improvement.

First, they promise something along the lines of making sure that all of their leather is “deforestation-free” by 2020.

Then they scramble to find out where in the world their leather comes from – which involves mapping transactions between ranchers, slaughter houses, packing companies and finally traders.

At that point, they usually examine three strategies: move forward by avoiding purchases from high-deforestation areas, help iffy suppliers improve their practices, and/or look for alternate materials.

Each of these approaches break down further – some companies aim to restructure their entire supply chains, one supplier at a time, while others turn to existing certification programs. Stella McCartney brand products even use vegan leather.

A disturbing number, however simply go silent – and, indeed, of the 24 wood-related commitments tracked by Supply Change, only 11 have any reported progress. On the leather front, progress reports are available on 12 of 16 commitments.

Once they implement a strategy, they establish procedures for monitoring progress; and – if they’re serious – they look for independent third parties who can do it for them.

Tracing the Lace

Many companies, erring on the side of caution, only make commitments they’re confident they can achieve – like making sure commodities are traceable to the region, mill or tannery they came from, and ideally to the ranch or plantation. Even that, however, can be a monumental task.

Most of the apparel companies Supply Change tracks do intend to trace their leather supply, and a few, like

New Balance and Coach,   require all their suppliers to submit signed assurances that their cattle doesn’t come from the Amazon. Coach says its suppliers have done so.

Similarly, H&M requires signed partner agreements to ensure compliance with its Business Partner requirements for both its wood and leather commitments, and its going one step further for its commitment on cellulosic fiber by working with suppliers to make their own CanopyStyle Pledges.

That raises another question: can the suppliers be trusted?

Meeting the Dress Code

Scores of companies are embedding environmental and social issues into their procurement guidelines, and some – like Adidas – are hiring third parties to audit all direct suppliers and making it clear that non-compliance could terminate the contract. A few, like Puma (owned by retail giant Kering) are even providing funds to help suppliers meet their environmental standards.

Puma also publicly lists its top-tier suppliers, while multi-stakeholder initiatives like SEDEX, CERES, CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), and IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative aim to help companies find meaningful ways of engaging their suppliers on a range of environmental issues and increasingly land use management.

Other initiatives go even further – and do so in ways that promote real change on the ground.

It’s Fashionable to be Certified

When companies abandon high-risk areas, they often fix their own problem but drive poverty and desperation in the places left behind, according to Rosa Maria Vidal of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Fund.

Certification programs, on the other hand, promote sustainable resource management by ensuring companies maintain minimum environmental and social industry standards.

Roughly 20% of all wood products are certified under either the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Program for the Enforcement of Forest Certification, but certification efforts only began to seriously consider woof fabrics

three years ago. As we saw earlier, only seven companies have committed to sustainably source wood fibers embedded in their clothes, and none of them have reported progress.

In leather, the certification of choice is the Leather Working Group (LWG), which audits companies to make sure their leather isn’t associated with deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon biome – making them, in essence, an audited version of the independent commitments made by New Balance, Coach, Eram Group and ASOS. Roughly half of all leather commitments are tied to the LWG, which has already audited more than 14% of leather production.

All of the companies building pledges on LWG certification are reporting progress, ranging from 15% for H&M to around 100% for Nike and Timberland.

These consumer-facing companies rely on LWG-certified tanneries like Couro do Norte, which in turn use lists of bad actors published daily by government agencies and non-profits to keep suppliers honest.

Brazil’s three largest meatpackers – JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva – also supply the leather sector, and they use the same monitoring systems while also publishing third-party audits of their procurement.

All of these efforts are helping to push these hidden supply chains out into the open, across all commodities, so that – hopefully – products like Gucci’s bag will become the norm rather than the exception that proves the rule.

What Can I Do?

Until that day arrives, you can follow the example set by Cathy Reid’s inquisitive customer and ask your own retailers where their clothes come from. Most probably won’t be able to answer, but those questions do filter up. Here’s a list to get you started:

  • Do any of your clothes contain cellulosic fiber or leather? Are there non-leather and cellulosic fiber alternatives?
  • Where does the leather for your purses, jackets, shoes, wallets, come from?
  • How about the forest fibers? Beware, many leather items say made in Italy or China, but this refers to where the products are manufactured, the cows may still be raised in the Amazon or other threatened landscapes.
  • Does your company have a zero deforestation policy(ies) that cover [cattle/leather] and [wood/clothing fibers]?
  • Has your company begun implementing its policy?

Take care this holiday season, and remember to read the fine print, because not all gifts may be as caring and thoughtful as you might think when their sources are tainted by deforestation and exploitation.

Woman Calls Police To Report Man Who Won’t Stop Whistling Semisonic’s ‘Closing Time’

An Oregon woman called the cops after a man allegedly refused to stop “obnoxiously” whistling “Closing Time” by Semisonic, according to a local police log.

Authorities in Forest Grove said that the woman allegedly told the man to “shut up” when he insisted on whistling the timeless classic (yes, timeless classic) near her driveway on Saturday. 

The song includes the lyric “I hope you have found a friend.” And yet, it seems that was not true in this case, according to Captain Mark Herb of the Forest Grove Police Department.

“It’s not clear if the caller would have been more or less upset if it was a different genre or whether it was just the talent lacking in the whistling,” Herb told Time.

Now, if you’ve made it this far through the article, the song is undoubtedly stuck in your head. You might as well go all in and listen to the whole thing:

Fake Ruth Bader Ginsburg Won’t Quit Under President Trump In ‘SNL’ Skit

Saturday Night Live” imagined what life will be like for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following Donald Trump’s presidential election victory.

Kate McKinnon as the 83-year-old liberal justice told “Weekend Update” host Colin Jost that she’d previously had it all figured out. After Hillary Clinton’s election win, she’d planned to retire in the Dominican Republic.

But Trump’s win had now put paid to her plans, and she vowed to never step down ― over fears the president-elect would usher in an ultra-conservative replacement.

“You can’t get rid of me,” she shouted.

“The bench is now my porch. I’m going to sit on it all day and scream, ‘No! Get out of my yard,’” McKinnon as Ginsburg later said, before adding, “I’m eating an apple a day to keep Ben Carson away.”

Check it out in the clip above.

Donald Trump Just Won’t Give Up His Birther Fantasy In Colbert Interview

Donald Trump has been coming under fire for refusing to distance himself from the “birther” movement he helped fuel, which claims President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States.  On Tuesday night’s “Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert offered the GOP frontrunner a chance to put the question behind him once and for all. 

“I’m going to throw you a big fat meatball for you to hit out of the park right now,” Colbert said. “This is the last time you’ll ever have to address this question if you hit the ball.” 

“I want to hear this one,” Trump said.

“Barack Obama, born in the United States?” Colbert asked.

When Trump hesitated, Colbert tempted him with the “meatball.”

“It’s a meatball, it’s hanging out there,” Colbert said, mimicking a batter’s home-run swing. “Right there — c’mon.”

But for Trump, it was a swing and a miss. 

“I don’t talk about that anymore,” he said.

“You don’t talk about it?” Colbert asked.  

Trump said he would rather talk about jobs and veterans, but Colbert cut him off. 

“The meatball is now being dragged down subway steps by a rat,” Colbert said, referring to the now-famous pizza-stealing rat. “You missed the meatball.”

The response is in line with what Trump offered on Sunday to a similar question on “Meet the Press.”

“I just don’t want to discuss it,” Trump told host Chuck Todd, calling it a “long, complex issue.”

After taping his Colbert appearance, Trump tweeted that the birther movement began with Hillary Clinton: 

FactCheck.org reports that while the issue was raised by diehard Clinton supporters in 2008, there is nothing to link Clinton, her campaign or her staff to the issue.

Trump is set to appear on national TV again on Sunday on “60 Minutes.”

Michael Moore’s ‘Where To Invade Next’ Deserves The Nonpartisan Audience It Won’t Find

Michael Moore is the 21st century’s most famous documentarian, but not for the same reasons that Ken Burns and Werner Herzog and Errol Morris defined the genre in the previous century. Moore is hyper-aware of the platform he’s carved out for himself. It’s the same platform that got him booed at the Oscars and landed him on Time’s 2005 list of the globe’s most influential people. He galvanizes his core audience — liberals who criticize gun laws and long for universal healthcare — and alienates the non-choir folk who might actually have something to glean from his films. 

That was blindingly transparent at Thursday’s opening-night Toronto Film Festival screening of Moore’s new documentary, “Where to Invade Next.” A packed house at the expansive Princess of Wales Theatre not only laughed at the movie’s many witty moments, but gleeful cheers and applause broke out at regular intervals as the film’s interview subjects pointed out the copious examples that prove America, however great, is culturally, politically and sociologically inferior t0 other countries. Sitting among the crowd, and agreeing with the bulk of their endorsements, I wondered whether what should be seen as a relatively nonpartisan doc would register anywhere outside of the admitted echo chamber that exists within the mainstream entertainment media. Will anyone who doesn’t already question America’s military industrial complex see this film? Aren’t proponents of women’s rights already aligned with the points Moore raises? Doesn’t anyone with half a brain think the country’s lack of paid-vacation laws is chintzy?

The answers to these questions, in all likelihood, are resounding affirmatives. That’s not to say that “Where to Invade Next” isn’t good. Its execution, in fact, is quite effective. It’s built on the guise of Moore assuming the Pentagon’s duties by “invading” — aka visiting — other countries to poach ideas that would make America a fairer, more hospitable place. Along the way, he learns that Italy provides citizens with eight weeks (!!!) of paid vacation. In France, school-cafeteria lunches are five-star affairs. Slovenia offers free college education. Portugal has decriminalized all drug use and seen its usage rates plummet. Women’s health clinics in Tunisia are government-funded.

Wouldn’t it be great if America emulated such policies? “Obviously,” the TIFF viewers shouted by way of periodic applause in response to the film’s talking heads, who blanch at the notion that the United States doesn’t offer the same advantages. The fact that “Where to Invade Next” is built with practical alternatives to America’s systemic flaws makes it a stirring work of political theater, and with only a gentle presence from Moore throughout, progressive audiences will continue to howl, just as they did at Thursday’s screening. But watching the movie with such a devout congregation was a living reminder that a Moore documentary serves constituents rather than the overall populace. With peachier projects like “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11,” that was inevitable. With “Where to Invade Next,” which ends on a hopeful note and should be seen as Moore’s least parochial outing yet (there’s only one George W. Bush crack!), it’s just a shame. This isn’t a quote-unquote liberal movie — it’s a look at the decency that exists across the globe but is often undervalued on our home turf.

Not only does your wardrobe get a new piece to play with, but the higher rise precludes any chance of the stiff edge rubbing against the thin skin near your ankle and foot. Fashion trends that ban blisters? Perfection.

Sorry, Muggles! Daniel Radcliffe Won’t Be In ‘Sharknado 3’

 ”Sharknado 3″ finally gave us a reason to say, “Oh, hell no!”

After Daniel Radcliffe revealed he was a big “Sharknado” fan, rumors of a possible cameo in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” started flying around faster than a Golden Snitch. (That’s fast, y’all. If you catch it, you basically win the Quidditch match.) The actor fawned over the idea during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, and he even came up with scenarios for his awesome death scene.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, “Sharknado 3” writer Thunder Levin said he heard Radcliffe was a fan and even wrote a part for him in the new movie, but alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

“Much as I had hoped that would happen, it did not work out. There was some sort of a scheduling conflict and he couldn’t do it,” said Levin. 

(You’re a disappointment, Harry.) 

Image: TheTerribleDesire

When asked about Radcliffe’s potential part, Levin revealed the “Harry Potter” star was going to be “someone working at Universal Studios,” but he added, “That’s about as far as I can go.”

HuffPost suggested it would be amazing if the actor were actually working at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, but Levin said Warner Bros. probably wouldn’t have been a fan.

Though Radcliffe isn’t in the film, the character he would’ve played still made the cut. Levin says, “Sort of a version of that character is still in the film, but it changed significantly once it was not gonna be him.”   

So there you go, Muggles. Make sure to look out for the part Radcliffe would’ve played, and just imagine how great it would’ve been to see Harry Potter get eaten by a shark. We know at least one dude who will.

Here’s Why Ed Sheeran Won’t Hook Up With Taylor Swift

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift are BFFs and bedtime texters, and it’s going to stay that way.

During an interview with Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” on Friday, a co-host asked Sheeran if he’s ever tried to hook up with the “Style” singer.

“No,” Sheeran said, after adorably explaining that he “gets on really well with her” in a professional sense. When asked whether or not Swift is Sheeran’s type, he quickly said she was “too tall.”

“I feel like we look like cast members of ‘The Hobbit.’ She’s like, in the elven kingdom,” the British singer-songwriter said. “She’s hanging out with Galadriel and stuff, and I’ve got hairy feet.” Sheeran then said he thinks it’s healthy to have good friends who you don’t hook up with.

We don’t blame him. The two singers already know each other super well, and he even went to lunch with Swift and Calvin Harris on Thursday, so why mess that up?

Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen Won’t Be In ‘Fuller House’

We didn’t expect Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to appear in the new “Full House” reboot, and it turns out the 28-year-old fashion designers will not reprise their shared role as Michelle Tanner, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of Fuller House, I know how much Full House has meant to them and they are still very much considered family,” executive producer Robert L. Boyett said in a statement. “It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards Fuller House.”

The news comes weeks after John Stamos, who is both producing and slated to appear in the Netflix series, called “bullshit” on the sisters, after they told Women’s Wear Daily they weren’t in the loop regarding the new show. Stamos later tweeted that he and Mary-Kate has smoothed things out after having a “sweet talk,” but he apparently wasn’t able to sweet-talk the twins into appearing on the show.

In addition to Stamos, fans of the ABC original series can expect Andrea Barber, Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure, and Dave Coulier to appear on the revival. which will follow Bure’s D.J. Tanner as a widow with three kids.

Earlier this month, Bure spoke about “Fuller House” on the “Today” show, saying that the Netflix series won’t be the same as the original. “It’s definitely a fresh take,” she said. “We’re not doing the old show, it’s not a reunion. It’s a spinoff show.”

Chris Rock: I Won’t Be Alive To See Cops Stop Killing Black Kids

In support of the UK premiere of his flick, “Top Five,” comedian-actor Chris Rock conducted an interview with The Guardian, in which he shared his thoughts on everything from Hollywood’s ongoing diversity issues to Barack Obama’s presidency and police violence against black men in America.

During the interview Rock, who was pulled over by police on three separate occasions over the span of seven weeks, went on to reveal his feelings on America’s string of fatal police encounters.

It’s not that it’s gotten worse, it’s just that it’s part of the 24-hour news cycle. What’s weird is that it never happens to white kids. There’s no evidence that white youngsters are any less belligerent, you know? We can go to any Wall Street bar and they are way bigger assholes than in any other black bar. But will I see cops stop shooting black kids in my lifetime? Probably not.

9 Met Gala Dresses You Won’t Appreciate Until You See Them From the Back

Hate to see her go but love to watch her leave was another trend at Monday’s Met Gala. Stylish celebs went all out with trains and many of them, like Sarah Jessica Parker, had helpers to get them and their elaborate trains climb up those epic stairs. “I’m on train duty,” said SJP’s date Andy Cohen, who dutifully followed her with a helping hand. Lady Rihanna had no fewer than three people lifting her showstopping Guo Pei cloak. When asked about the challenges of wearing the look, Rihanna, who seemed to take all her might to get to the top, exclaimed “It’s heavy!”.

Beyonce, who arrived more than an hour after all the guests had settled into dinner inside, had stylist Ty Hunter following her every sashay, arranging her jewel-encrusted tulle train just so. Kim Kardashian’s feathered confection didn’t fare quite as well. While Kanye carefully helped her up the steps, her train left a trail of white feathers in her path. Kind of fitting for Kim, who always leaves her mark. Be sure to see all the dresses here.

Inspiring 8-Year-Old Won’t Let A Tragic Accident Stop Her From Dancing

Alissa Sizemore was playing outside with her siblings one night in May 2014 when a UPS truck ran over her right leg. According to KSL.com, the 7-year-old’s foot couldn’t be saved.

At the time, Alissa’s dance teacher told the local news outlet, “She’ll dance again.” Mom Heather Sizemore recalls Alissa’s determination to do so. When the mom took Alissa’s sisters to their dance studio last summer for dance team placements, the little girl handed her mom her crutches and started to dance. “She hopped to the middle of the room and gave it her all. She wasn’t going to let anybody hold her back,” Heather told PEOPLE.

Members of the dancer’s hometown raised enough money for the little girl to get a prosthetic leg in September 2014 — a big contribution came from an 11-year-old girl who sold her prize pig to donate $ 10,000 to the Sizemore family. After receiving the limb, Alissa started rehearsing for her dance studio’s recital.

“Dancing has been my favorite thing since I was 4. I don’t have part of my leg, but I can’t let that stop me. I still want to dance,” Alissa told PEOPLE.

In late February, the now 8-year-old took the stage to perform a beautiful and inspiring routine to Colbie Caillat’s “Try,” and received a standing ovation.

Watch her performance above, and head over to PEOPLE to read more about Alissa.

Wet Seal Stockholders Won’t See Payout

NO DISTRIBUTION TO STOCKHOLDERS: The Wet Seal Inc., which is set to be acquired by an affiliate of Versa Capital Management via its purchase of the teen retailer in a bankruptcy court auction, said Tuesday in a regulatory filing, a Form 8-K, with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it “does not expect to be able to distribute any proceeds to the company’s stockholders and therefore believes that the shares of its common stock are worthless.”
In many bankruptcies, shares of public firms often become worthless. Whether there will be anything left to distribute to unsecured creditors, who are higher than stockholders in the financial food chain, is still unclear. In addition, the SEC filing said the affiliate of Versa will be responsible to pay B. Riley Financial, which was the stalking-horse bidder, a $ 625,000 break-up fee per the terms of the asset purchase agreement. Wet Seal filed its voluntary petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy court protection in January in Delaware.

Repetitive Lynch: ‘Here so I won’t get fined’

Why I Won’t Be Watching American Sniper

Yes, it’s hard for me to admit, but I am an American Muslim. This is my identity, but it’s very difficult for me to say it out loud these days. I know it’s wrong of me and I constantly get lectured by my other Muslim friends about how I should take pride in my identity and who I am, yet my heart still struggles with it.

I was born a Muslim in the U.S., as my parents had migrated to California in the early 1960s. Growing up I never felt that I was looked upon differently. I was me. This was my home and this is where I belonged. Religion has never been an outwardly beast for me; it was always an inner angel that lived within me and guided me towards kindness and gentleness.

But in the past few years after seeing what has been happening inside and outside of the Muslim world, I am torn. Many things have started to fall in place and make sense to me. This is not the first time in history where people have done crazy things in the name of religion. This is not the first time when wars were fought for political reasons and personal gains and they were covered with the cloak of religion — but why does it hurt more now? Why do I want to scream when I hear about people calling themselves Muslims and killing innocent humans.

But then why do I feel lost and unloved in this country, America, which is my home that I love so much? I am as American as the guy that lives next door to me, yet I am looked at with suspicion. I live a good, clean, ethical life, yet I am made to feel guilty. I am told through the media that I need to apologize and condemns attacks that crazy people around the world are doing. Of course I will — just the way I condemned the Columbine shooting, the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson or the torture chambers in Guantanamo Bay. I will always condemn the evil craziness of mankind wherever it happens not only if it’s done by people who say they are “Muslims.”

Already my progressive Muslim friends and I are feeling sad and upset, and then comes a string of hate tweets and comments all over the media. The release of Clint Eastwood’s movie American Sniper was a box office hit, but it created more hate towards peace-loving Muslims like myself. I will not watch the movie and give my $ 12 to something that promotes hate towards a certain people. Maybe my $ 12 won’t make any difference, but in my heart I will have a clear conscious about not watching a movie that encourages hate. I would watch the movie Selma 50 times if I had to because it carries a message of hope.

I will always be a peace promoter and a compassion warrior, no matter what color, religion and country I come from. So haters of the world, remember before generalizing a certain people of religion, be it Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus, etc. You will be defeated one day by the peace-loving citizens of the world.

5 Reasons Being ‘Good in Bed’ Won’t Make Him Put a Ring on It

I had a knack for dating men who didn’t want to marry. Which was fine, because I didn’t want to marry. Until I did.

When I was dating my last commitment-phobic man he made it very clear that sex was his top priority in a relationship and that he was terrified that marriage would put an end to it.

So for the entirety of our five-year relationship I said “no” to sex only once.

I remember the fallout from that as if it happened yesterday instead of 15 years ago.

My man rolled on his back in bed and began kicking his feet and tantruming like a 2-year-old, “I want sex, I want sex, I want sex!”

The truth is it was a funny moment between us. He meant to sound like a toddler begging for a cookie and I found it endearing. We had our good moments.

But I think we were particularly close on that one night (an oasis in a shitastrophy) and I felt, like a contestant on American Idol, that I was safe till next week.

The rest of the time I worried that, as a tall, strapping, handsome fireman, my beau might give in to the temptation of all the badge bunnies sniffing around the station during his overnight shifts.

I hoped, by being an all-night convenience store for sex, he might stay faithful (he didn’t). And I also wanted him to know that he could count on non-stop sex if he married me (he didn’t).

Here’s why using sex to audition for wife will fail every time:

1. Men who are afraid of commitment will be able to smell something rotten in Denmark (even when you’ve showered).

Commitment-phobes are like blood hounds when it comes to agendas. They can smell you gaming them over any camouflaging pheromones you emit.

2. Men who are afraid of commitment often feel smothered by having sex with you.

And they will react against being smothered by having sex with the next available female in order to rid themselves of the obligation sex makes them feel toward you.

3. Having sex with a man in order to convince him you’d be a good wife puts too much pressure on the lovemaking.

Can you say performance anxiety? It’s incredibly difficult to actually enjoy sex when you’re using it as a weapon. And no matter how well you can fake an orgasm, a man can tell when you aren’t authentically turned on.

4. Having sex with a man to convince him to marry you is self-abandonment.

Whenever we give another person power over us we lose ourselves and often abandon our principals and the things we value.

There’s nothing less appealing than a woman who has no self-esteem and is willing to ditch herself to win a man.

5. If you do manage to convince a commitment-phobe to marry you based on the gymnastic, never-ending sex you provide, you will have to keep this up forever.

Do you really want to be married to someone you have to turn somersaults for day-after-day, year-after-year for fear if you don’t he’ll want out?

Now add to that the pressures of raising children and making a living.

There’s no doubt that sex is incredibly important to a good, healthy marriage, but man cannot live on lust fulfillment alone. Building your marriage on sex is like building it on the Louisiana bog of Naked and Afraid. It’s bound to sink and someone’s bound to be killed by a water mocassin. Yes, that could happen.

Peter Pan Moms: We Won’t Grow Up

We Peter Pan Moms make up the first-generation of hot moms, MILFS and cougars — congratulations and condolences to us. Take, for example, the Facebook timeline. We Peter Pan Moms update our vanity avatars more often than we floss, alternating between a youthful headshot taken from above (always from above) and a peek at our latest ink. We channel our rock star within on the dance floor, at the karaoke mic and sometimes party a bit too much like it’s 1999. Make that 1989. Sun City has no idea what’s coming, but they better amp up their WiFi, add tattoo artist to their spas and start training their DJs.

Once a vanity reserved for celebrities, now the illusion of forever (lifted, rejuvenated, de-veined) young falls within reach of the masses. During their “hot mom” years, our grandmas wore modest dresses and stockings. Mom wore “mom jeans” because that’s how jeans came — high in the waist and ample in the hips. The only women in America getting routine plastic surgery lived in Beverly Hills or could afford to. As kids, we occasionally begged off of our mothers (and fathers) wardrobes, but they certainly didn’t beg off ours. Maybe — maybe — a classmate mentioned your mom as pretty, but MILF? An unthinkable moniker, and If anyone did think about it, they certainly did not celebrate it aloud. We called our friends’ parents Mr. and Mrs.; The line between parent and child, teen and adult, and those who should and should not wear mini-dresses seemed obvious. When Dirty Dancing came out, we certainly hadn’t seen our parents doing anything remotely like it at Auntie’s wedding.

I fear that Peter Pan Moms — as we joust with standards of hardbodies, wrinkle-free foreheads, full manes of no-greys (and nary-a-hair-elsewhere )– have created our own hawt purgatory, NeverNeverEVERLand. I foresee us as centenarians in NeverNeverEverLand, clenching our hot mom sashes and stilettos in arthritic joints, instead of gracefully handing them over to the next generation in exchange for Clark’s Wallabees and elastic waist pants.

Our grandmas couldn’t conceive of this NeverNeverEVER Land. Our moms fought too hard to be taken seriously to risk wearing pants that showed crack. Legs got shaved — maybe armpits — but if my crotch-height memories serve me correctly, our moms worried even less about their bikini lines than they did about the rubber swim caps suctioned to their natural salt-and-pepper hairdos. While sometimes I revel in my Peter Pan Mom rebellion of middle age, I also wonder how long I can keep it up. Instead of using our real life matriarchs as role models or adopting the Women’s Studies 101 ideals we once tormented our loved ones with around the dinner table, Peter Pan Mom desperately searches for ways to look less and less MOM.

My mom has always dressed and behaved with dignity and class (at least in public and so far as I know). She exercises for good health, not for hard abs (which neither she nor any prior generation sought, nor even found attractive). Growing up, I never heard her complain about her body, nor lament its aging. I hope that we Peter Pan Moms figure out how to marry our vanity with our aging bodies, obsess less over how our bodies look and shift our focus on to gratitude for how well they (hopefully) still work. I hope we learn to share the spotlight and know when the time comes to sit in the audience and clap when Tinkerbell publishes her first blog post. Most of all, I hope that we embrace the softness of our laps, while our Wendys Michaels and Johns still want to sit in them.

Bill Cosby Says He Won’t Answer To ‘Innuendos’

Before Bill Cosby took the stage at a sold-out theater in Melbourne, Florida on Friday night, he broke his silence on the recent sexual assault allegations.

While speaking with Florida Today, the 77-year-old comedian addressed the claims and revealed his reason for silence. “I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos,” Cosby told the publication. “People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”

In addition to the Florida Today interview, Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, released a statement to ABC News on Friday about his client:

“This situation is an unprecedented example of the media’s breakneck rush to run stories without any corroboration or adherence to traditional journalistic standards. Over and over again, we have refuted these new unsubstantiated stories with documentary evidence, only to have a new uncorroborated story crop up out of the woodwork. When will it end?”

Cosby has previously refused to answer questions regarding allegations that he sexually assaulted several women. In an interview with NPR’s Scott Simon broadcast on Nov. 15, Cosby shook his head and remained silent when asked to respond to the claims. Cosby also refused to respond to the AP’s Brett Zongker regarding the allegations, saying, “No, no, we don’t answer that.” He later requested, still on the record, that the AP interview be “scuttled.”

For more from Cosby, head to Florida Today. Singer’s full statement is available at ABC.

5 Pointz Landlord Says He Won’t Back Down On Using The Graffiti Mecca’s Name

The unlikely New York City landmark known as 5Pointz has been at the center of controversy ever since landlord Jerry Wolkoff whitewashed the complex’s walls last fall, destroying layers of graffiti art painted there with his permission. Now Wolkoff tells HuffPost he plans to use the name “5Pointz” for the two new condos going up in place of the former graffiti “temple.”

“I’m trying to get the name registered,” Wolkoff told HuffPost in a phone interview Friday. Earlier this week, a report surfaced of a bid Wolkoff submitted in March to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which was denied due to a preexisting real estate development in California with a similar name. In the call to HuffPost, Wolkoff clarified that he plans to challenge the denial.

5ptz

5 Pointz, before and after Wolkoff’s whitewashing.

The move makes one more bullet point in a list of grievances for the key artists and activists associated with 5Pointz, for whom Wolkoff became an enemy after his dramatic overnight whitewashing. One, Marie Cecile Flageul, acted as the group’s press liaison when plans were underway to sway the city to preserve the graffiti-smothered building. Speaking to a reporter this week, Flageul accused Wolkoff of trying to “bank off our name.” She called the name-grab “ironic,” asserting that “the same corporation which single-handedly destroyed all the artwork known as 5Pointz” is “trying to capitalize” on its cache.

Speaking to HuffPost, Wolkoff insisted that the name is his to use. He contested an earlier New York Times report that seems to attribute the moniker “5Pointz” to Jason “Meres One” Cohen, a street artist who acted as the lead “curator” for the site in its heyday.

Wolkoff says he collaborated with Cohen on the name, which is meant to signify a meeting point of the city’s five boroughs. “We were talking, and we decided to use this thing of 5Pointz,” Wolkoff said.

He is also adamant that the name should be his to reuse in the context of the two condo buildings set to rise. Bringing up New York’s Museum of Natural History, he hypothesized that “if they took that down and put up another building with more or less the same stuff inside, you’d still call it the Museum of Natural History.”

The new condos will by no means duplicate the function of 5Pointz, a decrepit building that for much of its later life did not meet city codes. For years, the building was legendary for its studios — cheaper than any for miles. When a staircase collapsed in 2009, the primary allure of the complex was its external facade, which artists of all ages tagged with spray paint.

Wolkoff says the upcoming $ 400 million luxury development will channel the ethos of the old 5Pointz, calling the property’s second incarnation “the same” as its first. He plans to designate a tagging wall and studios inside the building, both features of which have been preemptively derided by artists as pale echoes of their soulful originals. Critics “don’t believe that I’m going to bring them back,” Wolkoff said, referencing the artists who once flocked to his property. “But they will be back.”

Fun Saturday Activities You Won’t Enjoy Doing with Your Mother-in-Law

This post originally appeared on Reductress.com.

2014-10-13-mominlaw.jpg

We’ve all been there — it’s a beautiful Saturday filled with potential, but it’s all ruined by having to spend it with your mother-in-law. Here are some fun activities that would have been enjoyable were it not for the brittle, 117-pound sack of negativity wrapped in Chico’s and Pandora bracelets:

Visit a Museum! Take in some culture at your city’s history museum (or bide your time at the gift shop while his mom marvels at “primitive” societies). As you lament over your $ 22 lunch salad (as she laments that you didn’t meet your “goal weight” before the wedding) you’ll wish your brain had been pulled out through your nose like those lucky mummies.

Go Shopping! Take a stroll through Baby Gap as “Mom” reminds you that “…it’s about time, after all.” Coo over those tiny shoes and quell the urge to garrote her with the strings of a baby hoodie; it’s too soon for her prophecy of “dying without a grandchild” to come true. Just take a deep breath and let her miasma of Estée Lauder’s “Beautiful” numb you into a trance.

Have a Leisurely Brunch! Hit your favorite spot for bottomless Mimosas. By the second, she’ll be telling you all about her secret first marriage to Steve Lacroix, who is now a successful breeder of Yorkshire Terriers in New Hampshire, and “what could have been if he’d been able to overcome those homosexual urges.” By the fifth, she’ll give you some helpful advice for your career, like that you should “show a little less T&A — it’s a credit union, not a bordello.”

Spend a Day on the Farm! Join her for chores around the family farm while you get some color in your cheeks, fresh air in your lungs, and pig shit in your hair. You’ll love it when she regales everyone during future holidays about how you got lost in the corn maze. She’ll also tell you the sad tale of your husband’s first love, Peg, who was crushed in an unfortunate thresher accident. Such a sweet girl. She always did like Peg more than you.

Reorganize Your Kitchen! Open the windows and let the sunlight stream in right along with the constant judgment. She’s let you know for years that everything is all wrong, and it’s about time you put things right while she supervises from a high stool with a pack of Virginia Slims and a gimlet. After that, you can rid your closet of all of those fucking wire hangers that you’ve been using to hang the nice dresses she buys you.

These ideas are just a jumping off point for ideas to make new memories together, and ruin your first opportunity for respite after a killer workweek. Remember — you’ve earned this misery by going back on your oath to only date orphans. Have fun!

“Mama Won’t Fly,” Little Fish Theatre, San Pedro CA

It’s summer. That means we need beach type entertainment material. Navigable, fun, not too ponderous. It also means road trips, planned as much as one can plan a road trip, a chance to connect with family, and, also, fun. “Mama Won’t Fly,” written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten and directed by James Rice for Little Fish Theatre, is both navigable and fun.

Savannah Honeycutt (Amanda Karr) and and her daughter Norleen Sprunt (Susie McCarthy) plan to attend their son’s/brother’s wedding in Santa Monica. They live in Birmingham, Alabama. Their relationship is, well, it’s difficult. Savannah is maternal, which is a polite word for manipulative. Norleen is feisty, chagrined, and not a little proud. She grieves the loss of the One, perhaps, Who, Got Away. Family is family though so, off they go.

Norleen bought the tickets, nonrefundable, of course. Problem is, mama won’t fly. A prior flight, gastrointestinal issues, no details necessary. Now it becomes a race against time cross country road trip in a clunker. At the last second, future daughter-in-law/sister-in-law Hayley (Holly Baker-Kreisworth) joins the mix. It turns into a get to know each other odyssey across the bottom part of the country. They may or may not become family but they sure get to know each other along the way.

Adventures abound. These include hitchhiking because someone stole their car and baggage. A visit to a museum of foundation undergarments that would make Madonna and Lady Gaga green with envy. A stop-in at a bar with an identity crisis: is it Irish or is it cowboy? And, finally, a delightful skirmish in Las Vegas.

Rice toned it pitch perfect. Serious issues underscore the story but its emphasis was on Murphy’s Law: everything that can go wrong, will. Was Hayley going to marry Mr. Right? Will Norleen rekindle what she thought was True Love? Was Savannah really that oppressive a mother? Who cares? The adventures and the predicaments are what shine in this story.

The performances are spot on, keen. Those southern accents are believable. The cast captures all the nuances of different people thrown together into each other’s company. Each woman has a deep side, some kind of embedded craziness. As we see at the end, each has a huge heart as well.

Karr nails Savannah: a pistol, a firecracker, a scourge to Norleen’s future happiness. Proving that the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree, so was McCarthy’s Norleen. Their bickering, their competition, and their shared DNA is funny, no doubt because the audience can relate to it. As a perfect contrast, Baker-Kreiswirth’s Hayley seems to optimistic, unjaded, a soon-to-be bubbly bride. As this is a road trip, though, she has baggage of her own. As various roadside attractions, the ensemble cast – Stephen Alan Carver, Sara DiMeo, Chiquita Fuller, Victoria Yvonne Martinez, and Daniel Tennant – are not just hilarious, two of them serve as the doors of the car.

“Mama Won’t Fly” is perfect summer fare. Well acted and staged, it will not just entertain you, it will also make you wonder why couples don’t just elope.

Performances are 8pm, Friday and Saturday, 2pm, Sunday, July 6. The play runs until July 19. Tickets are $ 24 – $ 27. The Theatre is located at 777 Centre Street, San Pedro, CA 90731. For more information, call (310) 512-6030 or visit www.littlefishtheatre.org.

Why I Won’t Be at Pride This Year, in One Long Rant

1. Because I don’t have 0-percent body fat, and, from what I keep reading, that is the purpose of Pride. And those who tell us it has nothing to do with body fat, and that we need to stop obsessing over unattainable physical-perfection goals, tend to possess unattainable physical perfection, like Matthew J. Dempsey. Have you seen him? We might as well have Angelina Jolie do a video on how silly it is for women to complain about being ugly… or leading unglamorous lives.

2. Because my straight friends have much more fun than I do, laughing from the sidelines. And their expressions are a tad too similar to the looks on their faces when gawking at the monkeys in the Bronx Zoo.

3. Because the last time I attended one of those big Pride parties, my date ditched me (and “ditched” is the correct word) before I showed up, and emailed me the next night to say, “Sorry, but I met someone else when I showed up — I really hate myself for it.” It wasn’t his email that upset me so much. It was that he never did meet someone else; he just decided he’d rather go solo and thought the made-up story would make me feel better. It was, like, so humiliating.

4. Because I have a hard time relating to a generation of men who cite Mean Girls as the film that best defines them.

5. Because I’m tired of cloned-looking, butch-acting, fake-smiling men greeting me once a year with forced promises of acceptance and love, if I just join them. Whoops, that was supposed to be why I dislike the Mormon missionary guys, but it’s easy to confuse the two.

6. Because I’m holding out for a better offer, like a stay in East Hampton or a beach house on Fire Island. Trading up is the new Pride.

7. Because every gay magazine giving me advice on what to do for Pride shows a semi-naked, 20-something model and suggests the all-night dick party, the all-boat dick party, the all-day dick party, the all-dancing dick party, and all dicks wherever I go — and all sponsored by liquor companies. That’s fine, but I’ll save a lot of money and have a lot better chance of finding a drunken lay if I hang around “straight” Irish bars on St. Patrick’s Day.

8. Because straight entertainers are now the main gay attraction. This shouldn’t bother me a bit, because Demi Lovato is performing, and she is the first name that comes to mind when I think of Pride. Well, except Lea Michele, but between butchering Barbra, perfecting the artifice of autotune, and creating one of the most self-centered, annoying TV personas ever, we need her for something far more important to our cause: World Pride!

9. Because I just turned 50, and, judging from everything I read, I no longer exist, except in movies about gay men who no longer exist.

10. Because I’m tired of smiley-faced men pretending we’re friends and hugging and kissing me even though we’ve just met, and then asking for my number because it’s all about togetherness. Whoops, that was supposed to be why I dislike the gay AA guys, but it’s easy to confuse the two.

11. Because the only Molly I’ve ever been interested in starred in The Breakfast Club. Give me a holler if Miss Ringwald makes an appearance.

12. Because Pride is on a Sunday, and TV offers a lot more variety that night, especially when it comes to unique personalities, clever escapism, and the kind of drama you actually want to witness.

13. Because if I want to stare at a lineup of half-naked, muscled-up men who look exactly the same except for the position of their tattoos, and pretend to be besties with them, and collect as many of these guys in my social circles so that people will think that I too am fabulous and popular, I can simply “friend” them on Facebook, “like” everything they do, and never leave the house. Friend-request me if you agree — and if you’re hot.

14. Because the only difference between Pride and Groundhog Day, as well as the remakes Source Code and Edge of Tomorrow, is that I don’t always get the guy or the happy ending, and I age a year each time it repeats.

15. Because going to Disney World is less of a hassle and a lot more authentic.

16. Because, between the ridiculous prices, the crowds, the glitter that stays with me for weeks, the inevitability of losing your friends in the masses, the fondling from guys with dilated pupils, the vomit viewing, the rush to make friends with anyone with a parade-route view, the heatstroke or pouring rain, the vicious queens kicking me with heels, the vicious drag queens kicking me with heels, the vicious lesbians kicking me with boots, and the sexy naked guys so loaded that by the end of the night they’ll sleep with just about… ah, heck, I’ll be there. I’m not proud.

10 Things You Won’t Believe Happened at Weddings I’ve Planned

I have learned never to say “I’ve seen it all” or to claim there’s nothing left that could surprise me in wedding planning. Just when I think there’s nothing left that could shock me, something whacky happens (like the bride’s father stripping down to his skivvies) and I’m wrong yet again. So I’ve given up claiming that I know everything that can happen at a wedding. I don’t. Even after eight years and almost 500 weddings, things shock and horrify me regularly.

Here are 10 things it’s hard to believe were happening at weddings I’ve planned — but they really did (and I have the PTWD (Post Traumatic Wedding Disorder) to prove it):

1. The grandfather of the bride physically attacking the father of the bride during cocktails just after the happy couple made their grand entrance. OMG – shocking! And Gramps got a good lick in and drew blood, so he had to leave before the wedding reception dinner. Otherwise, he would have been escorted out by security anyway. Always have a plan for when a fight breaks out between guests — but just hope it’s not the family members attacking each other.

2. The groom arriving 30 minutes late for his own wedding ceremony, dressed in shredded cutoffs, and then standing on a rock like the Karate Kid, balanced on one leg, throwing stones into the Caribbean Sea while all the guests watched from a distance thinking he’d lost his mind. Eventually, when I asked what he was doing, he replied “getting rid of the bad energy.” Um buddy, you’re making the bride sit in a car waiting for you to put your pants on. That’s called creating bad karma, not relieving it.

3. Two grooms were upset with the way the place cards had been set up on their head table. The problem was they hadn’t followed our chart — they’d created their own and the staff couldn’t follow it. We fixed the problem before the guests were seated for dinner, but the grooms were too drunk to care. They screamed and yelled at me every chance they got. Icing on the cake — when the toasts were finished and I handed them the microphone to thank their guests, they actually used that time to publicly eviscerate me to their 60-plus guests who had just spent three lovely days enjoying the events my company planned. It was humiliating, and yes, the guests (and their families) apologized for the grooms’ behavior. Perfect wedding otherwise but we never heard from them again. I think they were mortified when they sobered up.

4. Beautifully executed wedding for a Chicago couple with Mexican origins. After dinner, during the toasts, the Best Man got up and began toasting dead gang members and pouring shots on the ground in memory of/honor of “Vatos Locos.” Um, haven’t I heard of them in way too many FBI wanted file stories? Scary. You never know who your clients really are until they arrive at a destination wedding.

5. A bridesmaid (and cousin of the bride) who was recently out of rehab took ALL of her Methadone on the first night of a five-day wedding weekend and freaked out. She called the police for an escort to the ferry (she thought she was in danger) and holed up in posh hotel on the big island with her much older boyfriend and the stash of drugs she’d obtained between the ferry and the resort. Unfortunately, she took her bridesmaid dress with her. I had to hunt it down, threatened to send the police to her hotel room (I knew she had drugs from her voice), and arranged to have the dress flown back to Vieques Island for another girlfriend to wear within a few hours of the wedding. Not easy. Not fun. But we did it. Be prepared to capture the wedding attire if a wedding party member makes a run for it!

6. The Best Man forgot the groom’s suitcase on the ferry dock on the main island — the same suitcase that contained the wedding rings AND the bride’s engagement ring. Say what? NEVER EVER pack your rings. And the engagement ring belongs on the bride. The worst part was the drunk Best Man (a US Marine officer, I might add) didn’t know where he left it — on the dock, in the taxi, on the ferry — not a clue. I used my position as police community liaison to work with an Agente in the Policia de Puerto Rico to track the bag and find it in the Customs holding area on the other island where it had been stowed after being abandoned. I can’t believe they lost it, but I REALLY can’t believe we found it. They had it back within hours.

7. The Mother of the Bride became ill and had to be emergency transported off the island, vomiting blood. I literally hijacked the governor’s helicopter off the tarmac (my police pilot friend was there waiting to fly the Guv back from a meeting with our mayor) and got the pilot to fly the MoB to a hospital on the big island. That night, the mom checked out of the hospital against medical advice and returned to Vieques. By midday the next day, she was throwing up buckets of blood and lost consciousness, and I had to have her transported via ambulance and then Medevac helicopter. She almost died. And then she turned around 24 hours later and checked out of the hospital against medical advice again, and returned to the island for the wedding. We had to tell the bride we couldn’t take any more responsibility for helping transport her if another emergency occurred. Suicide by wedding? I think not.

8. Drunken wedding guests, out of control, doing shots, and being verbally abusive to the service staff is, unfortunately, not as uncommon as you would think. We’ve had to call the police on one occasion when the very large, frightening groomsmen were stealing liquor bottles, breaking centerpieces and generally causing mayhem at a $ 4 million villa. The key is to have enough of our staff on hand with these large groups and always have a security plan ready to go on a minute’s notice. Oh yes, we all wear headsets and know what’s going on all over the wedding property at all time.

9. Three wedding guests (sorority sisters of the bride) took acid at the beginning of the wedding ceremony (we learned the sordid deets from the bride later on). By the time dinner was through, they were tripping hard! They tried to eat out of the caterer’s garbage, then stripped naked and jumped into the pool with the seven-year-old ring bearer. Once we had them out of the pool and back in the villa, they jumped up onto tabletops to dance, semi-dressed in high heels. Asked to get off the tables, one girl (can’t say “young lady” and she wasn’t mature enough to be a “woman”) jumped on my husband and attacked him like a spider monkey. The DJs had to help pull her off of him. My husband, a retired SWAT commander, was not amused. Neither were the bride or groom. Know who you are inviting before you mail those invitations or take the risk of an unpleasant surprise.

10. We planned and executed a Wiccan wedding for a lovely couple from California who didn’t tell me that they were witches until a week prior to the wedding. But I was less surprised than the traditional Jewish Mother of the Bride from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, who learned her daughter would be married by a Wiccan priest instead of a rabbi at the wedding rehearsal. From me. Shortly after that, the groom had a hysterical temper tantrum about wanting to move the wedding to a different part of the beach where he felt the “energy” was better. The elderly Mother of the Bride, to her credit, did not have a stroke right then and there, but it was a close one. Watching her old lady friends having to wash their panty-hose covered feet in the ocean to be “purified” and smudged with sage before the ceremony was absolutely priceless. Lesson of the day, find out in advance if your brides and grooms are witches and whether the guests (especially their parents) know they’ll be attending a less-than-traditional wedding.

Now I’m on a roll but it will have to wait for another time — so many more fun stories to share from so many different kinds of weddings. End of day, know as much as you can about your wedding group in advance so you can be prepared for whatever might happen during the main event.

Happy wedding planning!

My Man Won’t Commit, Why Not? 8 Critical Questions!

Whether you live in an area chock o’ block full of eligible males or a remote location where single men are scarce, one thing is a given.

Many men are commitment phobic. We won’t delve into the reasons here. They’re unimportant. What we will do is look for signs that he may be the right guy and then discuss tactics to encourage him to commit.

We often use a Mind Acrobatics™ photo that relaxes us as we ponder. Here’s one taken in a city where men are plentiful and women claim “they’re all either married or gay.”

Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. I believe men and women are wired differently.

Although times and mores have changed, in general men find it much easier to engage in sex without feeling any spiritual or emotional commitment. I know that’s not always the case, but it is the more common scenario, although it’s changed somewhat with the Millennials.

When we meet someone of the opposite sex most often there’s an initial chemical attraction. But as we all know it’s only one ingredient in the complex mosaic of a relationship. Albeit an important one!

Our physical urges often cloud our cognitive reasoning. As a coach I’m so often distressed by the frustration of my clients. They describe a seemingly perfect match, but are unable to move the relationship to the next level.

This is when we engage in a variety of introspective questions to help us clarify the quality of the relationship and its impact on the individual.

These are a just a few of the questions I often ask:

1. “How strong is the physical chemistry on a scale of 0 – 10?”
2.”How comfortable and good does he make you feel about yourself?”
3. “How much of the real “me” do you share when you’re together?”
4.”In an emergency how do you feel he would respond?”
5.”What kind of father would he make?” Even if children are not part of the equation.
6.”What are the three qualities he possesses that you most admire?”
7.”What would your answer be if he asked you to marry him tomorrow?”
8.”What makes him the right man for you?” Describe this in one sentence.

The point of the above is to help you assesses if this is a guy who has as close to
‘it all’
as can be reasonably expected.

If the answer is yes, then there are actions you can take.

Mind Acrobatics Exercise: Is He Mr. Right?

Part #2

1. Make yourself comfortable.
2. Take 5 slow breaths.
3. Munch on your snack.
4. Be aware of the moment and relax. Imagine you are on a tropical isle.

5. For the next 15 minutes write in pure stream of consciousness on both columns.
6. Don’t over think. Don’t censor. Just record whatever comes to mind.
7. Stop when it feels appropriate.
8. Put the list away to look at later.

In a day or two when you have some down time take out the list. Look carefully and cross out all you feel is unimportant to you.

Now with an open mind look at what you have recorded. If you find that the plus column far outweighs the minus column… you’ve got something to work with.

Ask yourself “What do I think is stopping him from taking our relationship further?” What if anything comes to mind?

You may discover there seems to be no logical reason that he doesn’t want to commit.

That’s O.K. and not uncommon.

No, you can’t pressure or cajole a guy into commitment. Yes, you can have a bit of fun and get some valuable insight into your relationship.

Prepare a piece of paper just like above but insert your name in the two columns. The next time you see your guy tell him you just completed a COSMO survey. He’ll believe that:)

Ask him to take it and say you’ll have fun comparing notes later.

Then give him some space.

If he’s a communicative kind of guy he’ll be willing to participate. If he’s not, you’ve got a great clue staring you in the face.

When the time and mood is right enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine as you review the exercise together.

When you’re finished, if all goes positively as planned, simply say “that was fun wasn’t it” and move on to another topic or activity.

Say no more about it. Let him ruminate, cogitate and evaluate.

What’s written below is only if you have been dating for some time, feel you really want to test the waters and are willing to accept the results. It’s risky. I suggest speaking with a life coach, therapist or confidant before trying this! If the thought of his possibly breaking up with you is unacceptable absolutely don’t engage in the following!

Game playing… not something I usually advocate… however the results can be revealing!

Call him the next day and say you are aggravated. A family commitment came up and you won’t be available for about a week but look forward to seeing him soon. Set a date and time when you’ll meet.

You are now in control of the destiny of the relationship.

When next you meet, if he’s in the right place for commitment there’s a good chance he will take a step forward in the relationship. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. If he doesn’t make a move then he may not be the right guy for you. You can’t be sure though.

Is there a risk he will have found some other woman while you were not available? Absolutely!

However, if he’s ‘the one’ he’ll be chomping at the bit with the realization of just how much he wants you.

After that it’s like all of life, a crap shoot. Hopefully things will progress and he’ll feel comfortable taking the relationship to the next level.

If he doesn’t, take charge of your life. Decide to stick it out for awhile if that works best for you.

Or, don’t be afraid of letting go both physically and emotionally. Move on to a new chapter. Yes it can be scary. But then again it may be a great adventure and who knows what diamond in the rough you may find! Life transformation is invigorating!

I’d like to add one more thought. Relationships usually aren’t easy. They take time, commitment, accommodation and flexibility. But once you’ve reached a decision to leave work diligently at emotionally separating.

It’s much easier to stop seeing someone than it is to keep yourself from ruminating about them. There is no magic pill to simply forget a guy you believed was the love of your life.It may feel agonizing for some time. It goes with the territory of serious dating.

However, you can make an aggressive attempt to put him out of your thoughts. Take control!

Good luck and I hope you find a fulfilling, satisfying relationship with a combination of chemistry, caring and loving.

Consider sharing this article with a daughter, granddaughter, niece or any loved one. It’s never too early to learn how to manage healthy relationships.

10 Celebrities You Won’t Believe Are Turning 50 in 2014

-Being within Generation X makes getting older some kind of choose your own adventure situation. How will you age? Will you embrace it, conquer it, surrender to it, deny it? The members at the the front of the spectrum of Gen X are crossing a big threshold this year: They are turning fifty. That's right. You heard me. Gen-Xers born in 1964 are turning FIFTY this year. I am absolutely the person who can't keep it to herself when she is shocked over a person's age. Usually this happens when someone I am talking to mentions having a kid in college or a grandchild and I do a double-take. Sometimes I am incredibly rude and blurt out, "Wait, how old are you?" I assume everyone I interact with is my age. And when it comes to "my age" I keep thinking I am 33 despite the fact that I just turned 38 on Christmas Eve. I am always surprised to find out someone is older than I am, but the surprise is entirely awe and reverence. It is the realization that I am an 8th grader on the school bus and a cool high school kid is TALKING TO ME. When it comes to celebrities I follow the same sort of age blindness. Everyone is in their 30s, right? Except last year Coolio turned 50 and that apparently really shocked me. It just seems impossible that so many Gen X icons are turning 50 in 2014. And yet, here they go… -By Dresden Shumaker MORE ON BABBLE 16 child stars from the '90s – then vs. now 7 infamous child stars who have gone off the deep end 21 celebrity moms you never knew were smokers
