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

You always read about women and cat-fighting, but really, it’s men and cat-fighting that takes the cake. I mean think Kanye and Drake, Kanye and, well, anyone. And then think British pop star Robbie Williams and his neighbor, Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin.

These two have been sniping at one another ever since Williams submitted plans for a basement gym and pool at his West London home five years ago. Page wasn’t keen on the idea that the construction might damage his own home, Tower House, a mansion designed by William Burges that dates back to 1875.

So, the two fight; over the years Page has objected multiple times to Williams’ planning proposals and complained enough to get his construction workers fined for noise issues. But, last December, the local council granted Williams permission to build on the condition that he’d monitor any noise issues and vibration levels that might pertain to ground movement at the Page manse.

Well, that wasn’t good enough for Robbie, and because Jimmy keeps sticking his nose into the construction, Williams has taken to blasting the music of his Led Zeppelin rivals, like Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, and Deep Purple whenever Page sits in his garden. Williams even strolls into his yard dressed like Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant by “wearing a long wig and stuffing a pillow up his shirt.”

Seriously. Grown-assed men acting like little girls.

Wait, that’s a nasty thing to say about little girls.
Since I mentioned what a diva Kanye can be, let’s dish.

He’s backed out of headlining Coachella this year because they wouldn’t build him a giant dome to house his enormous ego … along with any modicum of talent he may have left.

It appears that Coachella co-founder Paul Collett received a call from Kanye requesting a dome smack dab in the middle of Coachella. Well, concert executives explained that it would be impossible to build a massive Ego Dome in four months and would require rearranging the entire festival site and removal of a large section of Port-a-Potties, Kanye blew up.

But, you know, who wouldn’t when they’re told they can’t have a dome because people gotta poop? And so Kanye hung up, stomped his feet, and ran to Kim’s bedroom to weep. And then he called back and said he wouldn’t appear at Coachella ever!

And he was informed that promoters had already gotten … wait for it … it’s epic …it’s still making me laugh … I am dying over here … Ariana Grande to take his spot.

Yeezus replaced with Mimi 2.0? Brilliant!
Sorry, not sorry, but Wendy Williams, who is either in the throes of an addiction to pain killers, causing her to look more dazed and confused than ever, or in the middle of a scandal because her husband’s side piece is with child, is taking a break from her show to deal with Issues A and/or B.

Wendy was supposed to return to her show last week, but did not, and is now scheduled to return sometime in Whenever. Co-Presidents of the show’s syndication company, Ira Bernsteins and Mort Marcus, put out a statement supporting Wendy because co-presidents always make statements when things are not falling completely off the rails:
“As she has for the past 10 years, Wendy delivers an incomparable live talk show day in and day out and we want to give her the best opportunity to heal and recover… Wendy has our complete and unwavering support and we look forward to her return to the iconic purple chair.”
Wendy is still a mess and needs more time to recover. That’s the truth.
If you aren’t watching Scientology and the Aftermath  then you are missing the most frightening television show ever.

Leah Remini, a former Scientologist who escaped the cult, is hell-bent on tearing down the ALLEGED church cult, and is apparently doing such a good job of it, that the Cult of $cientology [Co$] has accused her of … wait for it … murder.

True, Leah may not have held the knife, and she may not have even been at the scene but … according to Co$ international spokesperson and Director of Public Affairs, Karin Pouw, Leah is to blame for a stabbing that occurred outside of a Co$ headquarters near Sydney, Australia last week.

And, true to form, Pouw didn’t call the police to tell them about Leah’s involvement in the murder, but she did pen a strongly worded letter to A&E president Paul Buccieri—A&E airs Scientology and the Aftermath—accusing Leah and the show of inciting the murder with her words.

The incident took place January 4th, where the victim, Chih-Hen Yeh, a Co$ security worker was escorting a female church member to a “purification ceremony” when the woman’s teenaged son stabbed him in the neck with a large kitchen knife. Yeh died later in a hospital emergency room.

According to Pouw, the murderer “was inspired by an anti-Scientology website that featured your (Paul Buccieri’s) people and included a link to Remini’s show.” Yes, it was the link on the website with the knife in Sydney … if this were a Co$ version of Clue.

Pouw also claimed, and, again, not to police because, well, she’s an idiot, that “prior to committing this heinous act, the murderer spouted vicious religious hatred and propaganda, incited by A&E and the Leah Remini - Mike Rinder series.”  Pouw goes onto claim that "whistleblowers" claim Leah “coaches” people to “incite hatred against Scientology” which she calls “scandalous bigotry” and that the series—again, it’s Scientology and the Aftermath, Tuesdays at 9PM on A&E—has born “strange and bitter fruit”. 

Oh Karin Pouw, now you’ve gone and plagiarized Billie Holiday in your crazy rant. You’re clearly reached the edge and stepped over. Up next, Pouw will find a way to insert Leah Remini into the _____ White House scandal. … or say Remini was involved in the fake moon landing …or 9/11 … or ….
Dear Goddess, no one rides a story to death like Kathy Griffin.

That bitch is still on her World Victim Tour about that posting of herself holding up a “decapitated Trump head” and has decided to go all Karin Pouw on  someone she says didn’t stand up for her: actor Don Cheadle.

Seriously. Kathy says her “friend” Don turned his back on her in her time of need and took to Twitter to shame him. Sadly, Don wasn’t playing, and he came at her brilliantly.

It all began innocently when Don Cheadle Tweeted a photo of himself wearing a hat from Sleeping Giants, an anti-sexist and anti-bigotry campaign. That sent Kathy Griffin over the edge, or, well, further over the edge, reacting as if the idea of Cheadle showing support for Sleeping Giants was a personal attack on her:
Oh GREAT Don. I will never forgive you for your nasty tweet the day my smear campaign started. You know it was a fucking smear campaign and you have never taken a moment to apologize. Some liberal you are. Yes, my memory is long my ex friend. Shame on you. I kept a list. Fear me.”
Fear me? I guess she’s off her meds. But this is what she’s ranting about … in response to someone who said Kathy probably voted for _____ after that picture was posted, Cheadle Tweeted that he believed Kathy hates _____, and then added ... “That pic tho …” ... and that set Griffin off and she that first Tweet;but Cheadle needled her with his response:
And Kathy replied:
Huh? You’re a dick in real life, but believe it or not I truly hope what I went through never happens to you. Never. And if it did I would be the first in line to stand up for you, get my ass on television and do everything I could to defend you & the 1st amendment. It’s easy don.”
Seriously. Have you ever had anyone go off on you, and you’re like, ‘What the hell are they even talking about?’ Don Cheadle did, and he shot back in a series of Tweets:
“sigh ... ok, kathy.
1) we had one conversation on a flight about our mutual disgust for individual 1. i don't "friend" that quickly so we can't really be "exes."
2) had i been your "friend" and you had asked my opinion, i would have said, "kathy. for you own sake, please do NOT depict yourself holding the bloody, severed head of the president, evoking daesh, daniel pearl and every other painful, disturbing memory associated with it, your first amendment rights notwithstanding." and had you said, "fkkk you, i'm doing it anyway," i would've said, "well girl, be prepared to have the dogs sicced on you. the secret service doesn't play around with sh*t like that no matter WHO the president is. you're also risking your career for what i see as zero upside. just tell him to #diagf [die in a grease fire] like i do." maybe you would have listened. doubt it.
3) taking every opportunity to oppose him and support those looking to unseat him, IS defending you albeit not your personal, cringe worthy photo-op.
4) apologize for a tweet!? ...
5) i'm sorry that you're still dealing with the aftershocks of your actions. it's egregious.
6) this is six more than necessary answers to your "don's a dick because he didn't go on tv to champion me," tweet.
7) you wanna rap offline, you know how that works."
Kathy didn’t respond because, well, she’d been served by someone who refuses to stoop to her Woe Is Me, I’m A Victim level.

Own it Kathy. You fucked up, and now you should shut up.

As Joan Crawford said of Liz Taylor, but change a few words.... "These people are a spoiled, indulgent group, a blemish on public decency.”

Ariana Grande? BOOM! Sorry, just felt like booming. They couldn't get Taylor Swift?
I love, love Don Cheadle! Intelligence is so sexy. He can act too!
There are quite a few people up in here who really need to seek professional help and abide by it. Off the rails is no place to live!

Bob Slatten said...

I love his not aggressive, not angry take-down of Griffin ...and he can act, too!

Blobby said...

I like Griffin - for the most part - and do think she got a raw deal w the BLOTUS image. But the Cheadle thing seems petty.

the dogs' mother said...

Maybe we should build a wall around some
of these folks...!

anne marie in philly said...

to take TDM's thought further, encase these fools in concrete boots and throw them over the side of a boat. waste of DNA!

Deedles said...

@Anne Marie- TDM seems to be too much of a lady for this. For the greater good, I'll take her place :)

Helen Lashbrook said...

Kathy Griffin would do better to keep her trap shut

the dogs' mother said...

:-) :-) to anne marie and deedles!

Dave R said...

Kanye who? Didn't he change his name to Ka, or Ki, or Kaka?

Let's be honest, Jimmy Page is an Icon and Robbie Willians is like this used piece of meat.

Don Cheadle is great!!
