Somebody gave Benedict Cumberbatch a bullhorn in Boston, life is complete

FFN_Cumberbatch_EXCL_RM_063014_51465943

Benedict Cumberbatch & the Bullhorn. OH YES. Why has this fantasy never been realized before now? Imagine that voice… over a bullhorn. The good news is that Benedict was photographed yesterday in Boston filming more scenes as Billy Bulger in the Whitey Bulger film, formerly known as Black Mass. The good news is that Benedict is still rocking his ‘80s styling. The good news is that someone (a friggin’ genius) gave him a bullhorn.

The bad news? He’s yelling bad stuff into the bullhorn. He was protesting desegregation and busing in Boston’s school system. Which is historically accurate – Bill Bulger was a vocal critic of busing and school desegregation. Also: Billy Bulger was forced out of the Massachusetts Senate by Mitt Romney!!

So, let’s play a game. Let’s imagine all of the wonderful things Benedict should have/could have been shouting into the bullhorn…

“Every woman in Boston must take off her panties and prepare for The Batching.”

“Don’t yell at me, I know my accent sucks!”

“I want an Oscar for The Imitation Game!”

“Benedict Cumberbatch for Governor of Massachusetts!”

“Slap it up, flip it, rub it down!”

“Honk if you think I should have been People Magazine’s Sexiest Bachelor!”

Stacey Dash takes a job with Fox News, wants to run for office as a Republican

Most people from my generation associate Stacey Dash with Clueless (she played Dionne and it was glorious). Younger people may know her as a music video girl and girlfriend to some big celebrities. But she redefined herself in 2012 when she tweeted out ^^ an endorsement of Mitt Romney. There was a backlash because… I don’t even know? I guess some people think that all African-Americans should support Barack Obama. Whatever. I didn’t really pay attention to the “scandal” – people can support whomever they want, and even though I support Obama, I wasn’t offended by Dash’s politics.

Anyway, Stacey just got a new job with Fox News. She’s going to be a commentator “offering cultural analysis and commentary across daytime and primetime.” And she has a new interview with ELLE Mag, which you can read here. Some highlights:

The tweet that changed everything: “I tweeted my opinion and when I woke up the next morning, my life had changed…And since then, anything I say has been newsworthy. I say something and then it’s newsworthy.”

She hired Newt Gingrish’s chief of staff: After receiving an unsolicited letter from Patrick Millsaps, a Georgia-based lawyer who briefly worked as Newt Gingrich’s chief of staff during the former speaker of the house’s failed 2012 presidential bid (an experience Millsaps likens to “being named captain of the Titanic after the iceberg hit”), Dash hired the Hollywood neophyte to be her manager. “I said, ‘What does that mean?,’” the father-of-three told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in December. And then he realized the job’s real implication: “Oh, you want me to run your campaign,” he said. “I’m running the Stacey Dash campaign.”

Is she running for office? “Eventually. Yes. I would love that… I’m willing to make fun of myself. If anything that shows the people that I am more like the people than they think… Who better to represent them than someone from the South Bronx? I come from nothing. I understand what I’m talking about.”

Defending stay-at-home moms: “Stay-at-home mothers are building our future. And I feel like if we had more of them, our society would not be in such a decline.”

Her definition of feminism: “Feminism is being able to have the choice,” she begins. “The choice to be a CEO, to be an executive, to be a journalist, to be a congresswoman, to be a mother, a stay-at-home mother, to be a wife.”

She doesn’t spend serious money on skincare: “I use Cetaphil, Ponds’ Cold Cream, and Vaseline—the basics. Spending thousands of dollars isn’t doing anything different than the $15 or $10 I could spend at CVS.” Oh, and one other thing: “I beat the middle of my forehead when I put on my cream [taps on forehead with fingertips]. My grandmother taught me that. I’ve never had botox or anything. Whenever I start to get frowny marks, I beat the middle of my forehead and they go away.”

Her future: “There’s just so many opportunities right now,” she says wistfully. “Twenty years after Clueless I’m starting all over. All because of a tweet! It’s God. I truly believe it’s God.”

[From ELLE]

Yeah… I kind of think her definition of feminism is way better than most of pop star ladies out there today. Is it wrong that I kind of like her? I mean… it’s not like she’s Ann Coulter or anything. Dash is inoffensive to me, and I kind of like that she’s finding a second career as a political commentator.

Mitt Romney vacations with his family in Hawaii, just like Pres. Obama

FFN_Romney_Mitt_SWD_010114_51295137

Does anyone else think it’s funny/interesting/weird that Mitt Romney and his family are vacationing in Hawaii for the holidays, seeing as how Pres. Obama and his family always spend Christmas in Hawaii every year as well? Maybe it’s nothing! A lot of people go to Hawaii for Christmas and New Year’s. And now the Romneys do too. These are some photos of Mitt and his sons on the beach in Maui yesterday. Josh Romney (the one with Creepy Eyes) is holding Mitt’s grandbaby (and that baby is gorgeous, by the way) and Matt Romney is the one with a perky B-cup. I don’t see Ann Romney anywhere – word is that Ann fell apart after Mitt’s loss in 2012, and she just putters around the many Romney mansions, barely able to function.

I actually don’t mean any harm with these photos. I’m not gloating my liberalism over the Romneys or anything. I don’t wish them any harm. I actually think Mitt looks really good here – nice, relaxed, comfortable. If he’d been able to show this side of himself during the campaign, more people would have given him the benefit of the doubt.

Meanwhile, did you see that Netflix is releasing a comprehensive behind-the-scenes documentary about Mitt Romney and the 2012 election? The docudrama is called MITT. I’ve included the trailer below – there’s some really raw footage here, especially since the trailer opens on election night as Mitt and his family realize that he’s lost. Here’s what irritates me: Mitt didn’t have a concession speech ready, just in case. I can understand how the candidate might not have written a concession speech himself, but did his speechwriters really not have anything prepared?!

Elin Nordgren has a new boyfriend: her 53-year-old billionaire Florida neighbor

This story has been everywhere this week, but I didn’t even think to cover it until today (because it’s super-dead, gossip-wise). Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren has a new boyfriend! The dude is named Chris Cline, and he’s her neighbor down in North Palm Beach (which is where Elin has been living since the divorce). Guess what? He’s a billionaire. Because Elin doesn’t date poor dudes. EVER.

Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, is quietly dating her older Florida neighbor, billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline, sources exclusively tell us. Nordegren, 33, the Swedish former model, and Cline, 53, both have mansions in the exclusive North Palm Beach oceanfront community of Seminole Landing, where Nordegren had her home bulldozed and rebuilt after splitting with Woods.

“Elin and Chris have been dating since the holidays,” a source tells Page Six. Cline, a West Virginia native worth a reported $1.2 billion, stays far from the spotlight, but he did make headlines last year when he was the victim of a bizarre attempted extortion plot by an aspiring actor against targets including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Groupon co-founder Eric Lefkofsky and Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula. The plot allegedly involved a letter sent to Cline that threatened the coal tycoon’s family unless he gave over $13 million.

A father of four, Cline’s been married twice, and his most recent marriage ended in divorce in 2000. Cline, who owns a luxury yacht called Mine Games, reportedly hosted a Mitt Romney fund-raising reception at his home in September. Nordegren had the Seminole Landing house she shared with Woods leveled so she could erect a brand-new home on the site.

Last weekend, however, the beautiful blonde seemed to be Woods’ lucky charm at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Weeks after they were photographed together, Woods won the tournament amid talk of his best play in years. Meanwhile, reports have said that Woods’ relationship has been heating up with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. But sources tell us the pair are not dating exclusively. A rep for Cline had no comment.

[From Page Six]

I think it’s funny that Tiger only plays well when Elin is being nice to him. That’s hilarious to me. As for this new guy, he’s worth a reported $1.2 billion (get it, Elin), he made his money in the coal industry. His first wife died of breast cancer and his second marriage ended in divorce. He owns extensive property in West Virginia and he’s a Republican. I say that she should lock this down. He seems like a keeper (for her). Yeah, there’s a 20-year age difference, but $1.2 billion eases a lot of qualms, right?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck kicked off ‘The View’ for being ‘too extreme & right wing’

Thursday night, media outlets reported that Joy Behar was finally leaving The View. Even though I don’t watch that trainwreck of a talk show, I’ll admit that I kind of like Joy. She’s got that shticky comedy that is so old-school, it’s actually kind of cool. At the time, I didn’t think Joy’s departure was any big deal – she’d been on the show for more than 16 years, and who knows? Maybe she just ran out of things to talk about (I would). But now it seems like Joy’s departure is part of entire revamp of The View. Not only is Joy leaving (seemingly of her own accord, but who knows?), but now comes word that Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been axed. Fascinating:

The people have spoken. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, one of the five cohorts of ABC’s daytime talk show The View, will not be returning to the couch next season, following hot on the footsteps of fellow cohost Joy Behar, a source tells Us Weekly.

According to the source, the show’s resident conservative voice is being ousted after market research revealed that she isn’t popular with TV audiences.

“The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing,” the insider tells Us. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”

When reached for comment, a rep for the show told Us in a statement: “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract.”

Hasselbeck, 35, joined the cast of the daytime talk show in November 2003 after guest-hosting the show following Lisa Ling’s departure in 2002.

Throughout the course of her time on The View, she has gotten into numerous arguments with her cohosts, including a heated argument with Rosie O’Donnell in 2007 over the War in Afghanistan and with Barbara Walters over Mitt Romney in 2012.

Earlier this week, Behar, 70, announced her own departure from the show after 16 1/2 years.

“You can’t stay forever on a show,” she told Good Morning America. “I am graciously exiting stage left. I’ve put in 16 1/2 years and felt the time was right. I want to explore other opportunities.”

Adds the source to Us: “Joy says it just felt … tired and like work. She was over it.”

Behar has been with the talk show since its inception in 1997, and currently hosts Joy Behar: Say Anything! on Current TV.

[From Us Weekly]

I’m not trying to create a political flame-war with this, I’m really not. My interest in this story is mostly as media-watcher, like it will be interesting to see who Barbara Walters brings in to replace these two, and whether the show will survive. Do I personally think Hasselbeck was “too extreme and right-wing”? Yeah, I did, but I’m pretty liberal. What bugged me wasn’t so much that Elisabeth was super-conservative, it was that I thought she was an awful spokeswoman for her politics. Like, I really don’t like Ann Coulter (at all), but Coulter is able to coherently and (dare I say) intellectually explain her positions, which is something Hasselbeck rarely did (in my opinion). Coulter is extreme and right-wing, but she’s a good and effective spokeswoman for her politics, whereas Hasselbeck… just was not.

Ann Romney on Husband’s Presidential Loss: Blame the Media!

In his first extensive interview since losing the Presidential election to Barack Obama, Mitt Romney told Chris Matthews this morning that he only has himself to blame for not taking the White House.

“I lost my election because of my campaign,” Romney said on Fox News Sunday. “Not because of what anyone else did.”

Romney cited his failure to win over African-American and Hispanic voters, while also zeroing in on his “47 percent” comments as being detrimental to his bid.

Admitting that it “kills” him not to be President, Romney also had a few choice words for the man who is:

“He didn’t think the sequester would happen,” he said. “It is happening. To date, what we’ve seen is the president out campaigning to the American people, doing rallies around the country, flying around the country and berating Republicans and blaming and pointing.

“Now, what does that do? That causes the Republicans to retrench and to put up a wall and to fight back.”

Ann Romney, meanwhile, was not as deferential about the basis for her husband’s defeat. She squarely pointed a finger at the fourth estate.

“It was not just the campaign’s fault,” Ann told Fox News. “I believe it was the media’s fault as well, in that he was not being given a fair shake, that people weren’t allowed to really see him for who he was. I’m happy to blame the media.”

She then concluded by focusing on the same current issue plaguing the government:

“I totally believe at this moment, if Mitt were there in the office, that we would not be facing sequestration right now.”

Clint Eastwood Pledges Support for Gay Marriage

He’s one of the few big-time celebrities who is also a big-time Republican.

But Clint Eastwood has veered from the viewpoint of many Conservatives in one regard: the actor signed the American Foundation for Equal Rights’s “Friend of the Court” brief this week.

In doing so, the actor became one of over 100 prominent Republicans to support this gay rights organization’s document, which it has filed with the Supreme Court.

Clint Eastwood Image

In April, the highest court in the land will listen to arguments about the legality of California’s Proposition 8, an amendment that passed in 2008 and which declares “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized” in that state.

Those such as Eastwood have affixed their name to this brief in the hope that this gay marriage ban will be overturned.

And recent poll revealed that 61 percent of CA residents would support marriage equality. Do you support it?

Mitt Romney Heads To The White House

Ok, so this is probably not the way he envisioned himself going to the White House, but hey, a man can dream, right? Former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was spotted on his way to what could have been his future residence to have a private lunch with President Obama in Washington, D.C. on Thursday afternoon.

Whether you love the guy or hate the guy, or support him or not, it’s hard not to admit that he’s a pretty good looking guy for his age, right? I sure would like to know what his nightly skincare routine is, LOL!
