I Ain't One To Gossip, But.................

Neal McDonough is beautiful.
That's why he gets the big pic at the top. Baby blues for days; that Anderson Cooperish silver foxiness.
Well, now comes word that he was replaced in a new ABC drama Scoundrels because he refused to have TV sex with Virginia Madsen, his costar.
Apparently, McDonough, who formerly played crazy on Desperate Housewives and lawyer on Boomtown balked when it came time to fake-make passionate love with Madsen because it conflicted with his deeply-held Catholic views.
ABC isn't saying a word, and McDonough is also silent, though folks say it wasn't just the sex scenes McDonough didn't like. He wouldn't even kiss Madsen. Hell, I'd kiss her!
Though...................I'd rather, yeah, you know, him.
McDonough, married and the father of three, reportedly didn't make his religious convictions clear with show producers before the shoot, although it seemed common knowledge that, for the same religious reasons, he refused love scenes with Nicolette Sheridan on Housewives, and he abstained from sexiness in Boomtown and films such as Minority Report and Walking Tall.
McDonough stands to lose around $1 million for the firing. Like I said, I'd kiss Madsen, and for a lot less than a mil. McDonough has been replaced by David James Elliott.
He's hot, too, and doesn't mind a little TV nookie now and again.

On the Charlie Sheen front, People magazine, that bastion of hardhitting reporting, says that after months of arrests, bad press and more rehab, Charlie Sheen is allegedly looking for a way out of Two and a Half Men.
Sheen has been quietly telling friends, and People, that he's not coming back to the show; he has already scrapped filming of the last two episodes this season. CBS is reportedly looking for someone to replace him, searching rehab facilities, AA meetings, and jail cells for just the right guy.
Yeah, good luck with that.

Howard Stern said recently that Gabourey Sidibe, star of Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire, wouldn't work again in Hollywood because she's too fat. He even went so far as to say she was committing slow suicide because of her weight.
Well, Howard, asshat, Gabby has the last laugh.
Rumor has it that Sidibe is going to be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live! No word on when she'll appear, but it seems to be a done deal.
But SNL isn't the only job Gabby's taken after her recent Oscar nomination. She has a recurring role on Showtime's upcoming The Big C, about a teacher, played by Laura Linney, living with cancer. Gabby will be one of her sassy students.
So, um, Howard? Shaddup.

Kelsey Grammer was recently sued because a man claims his ideas for his own screenplay were stolen and used in Grammer's 2008 film, Swing Vote.
I know, I've never heard of it either.
But Bradley Blakeman alleged that he gave a copy of his script Go November to Grammer in 2006 and was surprised to see him in Swing Vote which was "extraordinary similar" to his own film idea.
Names were called.
Penises were measured.
Feet were stomped.
And a lawsuit came about.
And now, Kelsey Grammer has ended that lawsuit by paying Blakeman ten bucks in settlement.
It was just enough to cover the cost of the ticket he purchased to see Swing Vote.
Both parties are happy with the result.

What do big TV stars do when their bread-and-butter gets cancelled?
If you're Jim Belushi, former star of TVs According To Jim....I know, I never saw it could have affiars with multiple women and then enter sex rehab.
Or, you cause an uproar on a plane.
I mean, what better way to keep your hasbeen name in the press?
Belushi was on an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and decided he needed to nap during the 40 minute flight. But one of those pesky flight attendants woke him up, and Belushi, apparently grouchy after a nap, caused a scene forcing the captain to radio ahead to Vegas to have the police waiting when they landed.
The police decided that no crime was committed so Jim Belushi.....I'm Jim Belushi Dammit....was able to get into Vegas and raise all sorts of ex-TV star racket.
I guess whatever happens on a plane to Vegas stays on a plane to Vegas.

It seemed like only a week ago that Kim Zolciak, one of the crazies from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, was declaring that she was involved in a relationship with a woman, DJ Tracy Young.
Now. It's over.
Those lesbians, and the lesbian wannabes don't waste any time.
It seems that Young was miffed because Zolciak couldn't-wouldn't-shouldn't-didn't-can't-won't commit to her and that Zolciak keeps running back to her Pimp Daddy, Big Poppa, Lee Najjar.
While Young may have had a bigger strap-on, Najaar has a bigger wallet.
And Zolciak is all about the wallet.

And, here's more from inane Kim Zolciak.
She wants to declare herself Team Bullock.
She's never met Sandra Bullock, but the Real Housewives of Atlanta whore Zolciak has declared herself 100% on Sandra's side, and wants Bullock to punish Jesse James for his alleged infidelities.
Kim says: "She should cut his whole package off. Light it like a fire cracker and blow it off."
Wow! Wonder how Kim would have felt if her Pimp Daddy, Big Poppa's wife had castrated him when he was screwing around with Zolciak while he was married to another.
She might have stayed longer at the strap-on.

The Hair and The Dyke are at it again.
Donald Trump is wasting no time jumping back on the "Rosie O'Donnell is fill in the blank" wagon once news came out that she'll be heading back to TV once Oprah is gone.
First, let's take a moment and rejoice in the fact that, yes, Oprah will be gone.
Now, back to The Hair and The Dyke.
Trump says: "She's a loser. Her other shows didn't do well, this one won't do well. Everything she touches is a failure, she's a failure."
Everything, Donald? The View failed? Her first talk-show failed?
Maybe your hair is too tight and you just forgot.
Maybe you have a thing for loudmouthed lesbians.
Yeah, that's probably it.

Trump is an ass! Rosie walked from her first show to spend more time with her kids. Her show was still a smash with countless Emmy awards. Shut Up, Donald!

Wow, Neal! I'd kiss a girl for a lot less too BUT I admire him for living his life the way he wants and not letting money corrupt his value system.
