It's Snarkurday!

Ever since Leah Remini left Scientology in 2013, she has no more f**ks to give for that Cult, and she calls the cultists out at every opportunity.

Case in Point #1: when Leah’s show, Scientology and the Aftermath, recently won an Emmy and when she took the stage to accept, silent Scientologist Elizabeth Moss left the room. And Leah explained that since she’s escaped the cult, and was now a suppressive person, cultists cannot have anything to do with her. And so, when the press jumped on the Is-Lizzie-Moss-a-Scientologist bandwagon, she had to admit that, yes, she is, but doesn’t feel the need to share her, um, faith, in any other way than walking out of a room when a suppressive person is honored.

Case in Point #2: Leah outed Jada Pinkett-Smith, the Kelly Preston to Will Smith’s John Travolta, as a Scientologist:
“I know Jada’s in. I know Jada’s in. She’s been in Scientology a long time. I never saw Will there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. [Will and Jada] opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time.”
Will and Jada did open a school—which has since closed—but never acknowledged that Dianetics was one of the actual textbooks used there even though it was. And then Leah shared the story of the time that Tiny Tom Cruise made her, Will and Jada, and other guests play Hide-n-Seek in his mansion. Tom even made Leah be ‘it’ when she declined to play.

Leah also says Jada lied to Andy Cohen when he asked about that game:
“She was on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live a few weeks ago promoting her film [Girls Trip], and Andy said to her, ‘Have you read Leah Remini’s book?’ and he was like, ‘What was that whole thing about playing tag?’ and she said, ‘Oh, she lied.’ He goes, ‘Isn’t that weird, to play tag?’ and she goes, ‘No, the kids were there.’ That was untrue. Bullshit. There were no kids there. I was like, okay, alright, you’re gonna do that? More power to ya.”
Like I said, Leah Remini has no f**ks left to give when it comes to that cult and she’ll even come for Jada Kelly Preston Pinkett-Smith.
Last year Justin Bieber posted a picture on him alongside Marilyn Manson with the caption:
“Night out with the boys.”
Well, maybe not so much, because Marilyn isn’t feeling the ALLEGED bromance and now that he’s out promoting his new music, Manson gave several interviews where he outed Bieber as a Little Brat:
“I ran into him in some fancy bar where a lot of celebrities—a word that I despise—go. I saw a little girl in a pink hoodie with blond hair, and it turns out to be Bieber. I sit down, and I say, ‘Hey, so you wore my shirt and everything onstage.’ He was one of those touchy people that hit you when they talk, and he comes up to about dick height. Then he goes, ‘I made you relevant again.'”
Well Marilyn was not happy about the ‘made you relevant again’ business, and the t-shirt thing—the front had Manson’s picture on it, but the back said “BIEBER”—that Biebs was hawking for $195 a pop, and he threatened to sue until Justin’s team told him that he could have all the proceeds from the shirt. Manson then explained that he wouldn’t have taken the money if Justin hadn’t acted like such a little brat”:
“He was a real piece of shit in the way he had the arrogance to say that.”
And so what do child-like rock stars do when they are dissed by child-like pop stars? Exact a little child-like revenge:
“The next day I told him I’d be at his soundcheck at Staples Center to do Beautiful People.”
And then he never showed up. Seriously? I mean, I like Manson calling Bieber out on his bratitude, but this I’m’a-be-there-now-I’m-not stuff is stupid.
Martha Stewart is continuing her passive aggressive feud with Gwyneth Paltrow and she’s channeling Mariah Carey to do it.

Y’all remember, years back, when Mimi was asked about JLo and she responded with “I don’t know her,” right? Well, Martha was on Watch What Happens recently and when a caller asked:
“Are the rumors true that you are happy that Goop is having deceptive health issue claims?”
And Martha replied:
“Who’s Goop?”
And you just know it sent Gwyneth’s minions searching for a passive aggressive way to get back at Martha, like the time Martha dogged Gwyneth about the “conscious uncoupling” and the kids at Goop posted a recipe for “jailbird cake.”

Children. Play nice.

Jada Pinkett-Smith does not like that Leah Remini called her a Scientologist and instead of simply denying it, or saying nothing, Jada pulled a _____-like Tweet-storm at 3AM to clear the air; it went like this:
“I recently lit Shabbat candles with Rabbi Bentley at Temple Sinai... but I am not Jewish.”
And this:
“I have prayed in mosques all over the world... but I am not a Muslim.”
And this:
“I have read the Bhagavad Gita... but I am not a Hindu.”
And this:
“I have chanted and meditated in some of the most magnificent temples on earth… but I am not a Buddhist.”
And this:
“I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech… but I am not a Scientologist.”
And this:
“I practice human kindness, and I believe that we each have the right to determine what we are and what we are not.”
And this:
“NO ONE ELSE can hold that power.”
Methinks the Scientologist doth protest too much.
Feud Alert:

Jeffrey Mezger, the CEO and chairman of KB Home, was caught on tape hurling homophobic slurs and profanities at his neighbor, Randy Bick, and his girlfriend, Kathy Griffin, so you just know it became a thang!!

Jeffrey was caught on security cameras saying:
“Hey Randy, go f**k yourself. You’re stuck with a f**king bald dyke who Donald _____ kind of put the heat on. F**k you and f**k Kathy. You’re not our f**king neighbor, you’re a f**king asshole.”
The rant was over noise; noise! It seems Mezger’s grandchildren had been swimming in the pool at his home when the police showed up on his doorstep to register a noise complaint; Mezger instantly went after Bick and, by association, Griffin.
“Seriously? You call on my grandkids at 9 o’clock? You’re not even the f**king owner! Let’s declare war, asshole, ’cause we got a lot to go for. Let’s bring it on, you bitch.”
Bick says he made the noise complaint after enduring hours of excessive party noise coming from Mezger’s yard. He admitted to hearing kids, but said there were adults who were being loud as well. And, while speaking to officers, Bick said his security cameras caught the audio of Mezger’s profanity-laden tirade and you can hear Kathy in the background, while taking notes so she can pout this latest feud into her act:
“Randy, what’s happening?”
And Mezger yells back:
“If you’re asking Randy what’s happening, he called the cops on my 5-year-old granddaughter, you f**king c**t! Bullsh*t—9 o’clock at night—oh, this party’s loud, this party’s really happening. F**k you. I’ve done enough trying to be a nice partner—f**k you, neighbor. War’s happening. Don’t wait until we’re gonna bring some things on you. Now f**k you.”
Mezger, who was once named “most admired homebuilder” by Fortune magazine, has been the CEO of KB Home since 2006.

I may be wrong, but I think the KB in KB Home might stand for Kill [a] Bitch?

And so, naturally, when the tape went viral, Mezger had his team release the non-apology, this is not me, statement:
“Mr. Mezger regrets losing his temper over a supposed noise complaint involving his three young grandchildren in his swimming pool around 8 p.m. on Saturday, while they were being supervised by their mother and grandmother. He apologizes for the language he used, as it does not reflect who he is or what he believes.”
Mad this may not end, because this was started about a year ago, right when Griffin and Bick moved in to Mezger’s gated community.

Homeowners association logs show a long history of noise complaints filed by Bick—at least five—with some being filed almost immediately after the couple arrived. Mezger denies ever throwing loud parties and says if there is noise, it’s coming from children ... as if that makes it any less noisy?

No, it does not, but I guess rather than walking across the lawn and politely asking people to keep it down, Bick and Griffin call the law, and Kill [a] Bitch goes apesh*t.

It’s well-known that Barbra Streisand only wants to be filmed or photographed from her “good side” ... and that includes when she appears at a charity event.

The diva joined other celebrities—Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake, Kerry Washington and Diddy—at the “Hand in Hand” relief benefit in LA last week, but made sure photographers shot her best side ... her left side.

In fact, Babs actually walked the red carpet backwards—heading toward the door and not the event site—just so she’d only have her left side available for pictures.

Streisand is famous for insisting on being shot from the left; she even swapped seats with Fallon as a guest on his “Tonight Show” and did the same when she appeared on Oprah years back. On Oprah she even wanted to have a microphone that matched the color of her outfit.

Whatever diva wants ...
I love Kelly Clarkson, and not just because she has a fabulous voice and can sing just about anything, but because she has a back bone.

Kelly was one of the first celebrities to come out and support Kesha in her ALLEGATIONS of sexual misconduct and bullying by music producer Dr. Luke. But Kelly wasn’t just talking; she’d had her own experiences working with him, though she wasn’t sexually harassed, but says he was “difficult to work with” and “kind of demeaning.” 

In fact, Kelly was so disgusted at being forced by her record label, RCA, to work with Luke that she refused a song writing credit for My Life Would Suck Without You because she didn’t want her name next to his.

Doesn’t sound like much, really, until you realize that by removing her name from the song, she removed herself from any royalties the song would ever produce ... a number that could be in the millions:
“I was making a point to the people working with me, going, ‘This is how much I didn’t want to do this.’ I don’t care about the money. I don’t care about, oh, ‘You’re going to be the most famous person ever if you do this.’ That’s not what holds weight in my life.”
Clarkson ALLEGES that RCA vowed not to release her album if she did not work with Dr. Luke:
“Basically, they were gonna sit on my record unless I did what they wanted. I was so frustrated because I literally said, ‘Anyone in the world but this one person. I will work with anyone you want to put in my path.’ ... It was just this one thing, and I asked not to work with Dr. Luke just because I had not a good experience with him ... You have to really be a special kind of … for me not to like you.”
And so she did it, under force, but when the time came to add her name to the tune, she said:
“I don’t want my name near his. I want to pretend this didn’t happen in my life and I want to forget it.’”
Good for her.

PS Another reason to love Kelly ... over the 4th of July holiday this past summer, she sent out a Tweet in support of our overseas troops and someone responded with this:
"You're fat."
Kelly instantly replied:
"And yet ... still f**king awesome!"
Loved that one!

While I don't dislike Jada, I do think Leah best watch out....don't piss off Fish Mooney...she have her for dinner. But she is odd.

"I made you relevant again.'” while far from a Marilyn Manson fan, I'm surprised he DIDN'T have that brat for dinner. No respect.

And Gwenie and goop best watch out. I'm sure as we speak, Martha is concocting a recipe to make mince meat pies of them all... God I love Martha.

With such hungry eaters and cooks this week I'm surprised there wasn't a bit about Anne Wintour...Queen of picking her teeth clean.

Elizabeth Moss is a scientologist? I'm so disappointed in her. Especially given her role as a cult victim in The Handmaid's Tale.

A good dose of Snark. Ready to start the day! :-)

I might actually love Leah. I've caught her show here and there and it is well done. I didn't know she won the Emmy, so good for her. As much as I loved Moss in 'Mad Men', I now have zero respect for her. Zero.

My left side is definitely by best. Thanks Barbra. From now on I’m walking backwards.

Deedles said...

Kelly Clarkson is a little too classy and adult to be amongst this group of big babies.

I think it's funny that Barbra thinks she has a "good side" ( I can get away with that on Snarkurday, can't I?)

I thought you knew that what ever Babs wants, Babs gets.

I love Kelly, maybe even more so now!
