Sugar Tits Has left the Building
Mrs. Mel Gibson has filed for divorce from her husband of twenty-eight years, homophobe, anti-Semite, misogynist, raging Catholic, alcoholic, egotist, Mel Gibson. Gibson is said to be worth some $900 million and, seeing that the divorce is in California, Mrs. G is entitled to half, including the spousal support she's seeking along with custody of the couple's youngest child.
Mr. G, who built his own church in Malibu, the Holy Family Church, because he felt the catholic Church was too liberal--you read that right--doesn't seem fazed that his divorce goes against his strict beliefs.
The irony of the timing of the divorce? Mrs. G filed papers on Good Friday.
Good Friday indeed.
BTW: I loathe Mel Gibson.
And This Wants A Bailout?
Teetering on the abyss called bankruptcy, General Motors has issued a recall for 1.5 million vehicles because of potential engine fires.
The cars are so hot they might just spontaneously combust!
And some of the recalled vehicles are no longer in production.
Those recalled vehicles include the 1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue, the 1997-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix, 1997-2003 Buick Regal, and the 1998-2003 Chevrolet Lumina, Monte Carlo and Impala. It involves vehicles with a 3.8-liter V6 engine.
Apparently, drops of oil could fall into the exhaust system and cause a fire in the engine.
Gay America Idol?
Seems like a lot of folks have their panties in a bunch over Adam Lambert, of American Idol fame.
Lambert, of the remarkable voice, the stage presence, the talent, likes to wear a little mascara and nail polish. He apparently doesn't mind a liplock with a guy or two. So all the pundits are weighing in on whether Adam is gay, and if he is, would America vote for him on a TV talent competition?
Is he gay? I don't know. I checked my book and I have not had sex with him, so I have no firsthand knowledge of his orientation. He hasn't said he's gay; he hasn't said he isn't.
And you know why? Because it doesn't, and shouldn't, make a difference. He's on a show about singing, not a show about boys doing boys.
And I get bothered when folks wonder if we, the collective we, the American we, are ready for a gay idol. Ready? Really?
I think we are Elton-John-Mellisa-Etheridge-George-Michael-Cherry-Jones-Ellen-Degeneres-Neil-Patrick-Harris-Ian-McKellan-Greg Louganis-John-Gielgud-Rupert-Everett-Clay-Aiken-kd-lang-Louise-Brooks-Greta-Garbo-Agnes-Moorehead-Lily-Tomlin-Amanda-Bearse-Rosie-O'Donnell-Jodie-Foster-David-Kopay ready.
And that's just a few.
