The Long Downward Spiral of Michael Jackson

From Fox:...

Michael Jackson’s siblings — including Janet — and his parents are so worried about the failing pop star that they’ve sent out an emergency 911 call.
Sources tell me that the Jacksons are in the process of contacting Thomas Mesereau, the superstar criminal lawyer who won Jackson an acquittal two years ago in his child molestation trial.
The word from the Jacksons is that they’ve met several times as a family and discussed bringing Mesereau in for an intervention to save Michael.
Mesereau, who did not return calls to this column, is said to be open to finding out what Jackson’s true mental and health status is at this point. If he doesn’t like what he sees, the Jacksons will ask him to do something legal to save their brother’s life.
Jackson, according to insiders, is in perilous health right now. There is talk that his liver is damaged and that he’s been seen vomiting blood, although there’s no confirmation of that.
What has been confirmed is that Jackson — whose penchant for prescription meds and alcohol is well-known — is depressed, alone and mixing ingredients instead of making a new album or working.
But it’s the two-year isolation from friends and family that worried the Jacksons enough to consider including Mesereau in the conversation, sources tell me. The culprits are said to be publicist/manager Raymone Bain and aide de camp/nanny Grace Rwaramba.
For instance: this column has now learned that Bain has brought Rev. Jesse Jackson on in some kind of executive capacity in Michael’s businesses.
Bain and Jesse Jackson have a long relationship, so this is no surprise. But two years ago, Mesereau — sensing trouble — removed Bain and asked Jesse Jackson to leave after he arrived in Santa Maria, Calif., to grandstand at Michael’s trial.
It was Jesse Jackson who two years ago caused an avalanche in Michael’s finances. Jesse Jackson, sources say, interfered in Michael’s business by attempting to call Bank of America president Ken Lewis to complain that Michael was being “ripped off” in some way over his $270 million.
Lewis refused to speak with Jesse Jackson. He was so annoyed by Jackson’s interference that he ordered the banker in charge of the account to sell the loans to Fortress Investments.
The result was a sale and subsequent refinancing that put Jackson another $50 million in the red. Jesse Jackson at the time had convinced Michael that business partners Alvin Malnik and Charles Koppelman’s plan to bail out the singer was no good.
But in hindsight, he was wrong. Under the original plan, Jackson would only have sold half his interest in the Beatles’ catalog to Sony. Now, next May, thanks to the Fortress deal, he will have to dispose of all of it.

Interesting to think that the one time King of Pop could be bled dry and left having to live on handouts from relatives.

Founder of Ex Gay Ministry Apologizes

From Fox:

LOS ANGELES — Three former leaders of an international ministry that counsels gays to change their sexual orientation apologized for their efforts, saying that though they acted sincerely, their message had caused isolation, shame and fear.
The former leaders of the interdenominational Christian organization Exodus International said Wednesday they had all, over time, become disillusioned with the group's ideas and concerned about what they described as the wrenching human toll of such gay conversion efforts.
"Some who heard our message were compelled to try to change an integral part of themselves, bringing harm to themselves and their families," the three, including former Exodus co-founder Michael Bussee, said in a joint written statement presented at a news conference in Hollywood. "Although we acted in good faith, we have since witnessed the isolation, shame, fear and loss of faith that this message creates."

So what happens to a group when the people that created them says they are wrong?

Sometimes Common Sense Wins

From Fox...

A judge ruled Monday in favor of a dry cleaner that was sued for $54 million over a missing pair of pants.
The owners of
Custom Cleaners did not violate the city's Consumer Protection Act by failing to live up to Roy L. Pearson's expectations of the "Satisfaction Guaranteed" sign that was once placed in the store window, District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff ruled.
Bartnoff ordered Pearson to pay the court costs of defendants Soo Chung, Jin Nam Chung and Ki Y. Chung.

Roy L. Pearson, the judge who sued the cleaners said they needed to pay for a rental car for him for the next ten years so he could get to another cleaners amoung other ridiculous requests. Additionally the cleaners first offered him $3,000, then $12,000 to get him to drop the case against them. All over a lost pair of pants. Turns out he had massive credit card debt etc... Nice to see that the court slapped him down. Additionally it has now been recomended that he not be reappointed to another term as judge. Sounds like some people in Washington DC have common sense.....too bad more of them aren't in congress. ;)

Hollywood, 100 years of covering for gayboys

From TMZ....

They've denied up and down that they're an item, but Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis have been looking awfully co-co-co-zy in the afterglow of their "American Idol" glory.A TMZ spy spotted the "Idol" finalists "holding hands" while shopping at a Fry's Electronics store near L.A. We're told that they wandered around the store, unmolested, and seemed "happy" together. Blake was overheard saying to the 17-year-old Jordin, "We should call your mom." Need a ride, kids?Here, B & J yuk it up for photogs, as Blake rocks an outfit that seamlessly blends New Kids on The Block and low-rent surf dude chic.The pair will tour with the rest of the "Idol" crew this summer, but it looks like they've got their own duet.

Well I see that they are already trying to do a preemptive strike against the gay rumors. The fact has escaped his publicists I suppose that he is 27 years old and she is 17?! So apparently insinuating statutory Rape is better for somebody's career than admitting that he's gay. Nice one Hollywood.

Lohan...No Coke in Rehab?! I'm Outta Here!

Lindsay Lohan might be leaving the Promises rehab facility soon. A source tells Gatecrasher:
"She's scheduled to be out of rehab by next week. She's taken rehab very seriously. She has cut a lot of negative influences in her life. She and [mom] Dina speak every day."

She checked in May 28th and was supposed to do a 30 day program, so if she gets out by next week it means she'll have left the program early.
Do you see anything contradictery in these two sentances?
She has cut a lot of negative influences in her life. She and [mom] Dina speak every day."

Cutting out negative influences in her life but still talks to that mom? Sounds like she may have missed something. I give that girl under two years before these words follow her name in a paper

"Dead from an overdose at the young age of…."

Paris gets moved back to jail...Parents Check to Sheriff Bounce?

So Paris Hilton is getting moved back to her cell. Not because of any political pressure accourding to the Sheriff, but because the medical staff at the prison has determined she is fine to return.

So lets get this straight, Her condition was so serious that he released her early...yet the medical staff has sent her back to her cell. Hmm, it's almost as if the sheriff was using that as an excuse to treat her favorably!!! But that wouldn't be right and no political official would ever bend the rules so I must be mistaken.

Anne Heche...Crazy Bitch

Ann Heache's estranged husband, Coley Laffoon, has been awarded primary custody of their five-year-old son by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge. Laffoon, a stay at home dad, was asking for $33,000 a month in spousal and child support to maintain the "marital standard of living" to which he had become accustomed but got "far below his original demands." In the court battled he alleged that Heche was insane and that he was the one who created a stable home life for their son.

Well just goes to write a book claiming you are insane and talk to aliens and then that darn court goes and uses it against you.

Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'

Hank PlanteReporting
(CBS 5) BERKELEY A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently rejected, building the so-called "Gay Bomb. Berkeley's Sunshine Project, used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a copy of the proposal from the Air Force's Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio.As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, "One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."The documents show the Air Force lab asked for $7.5 million to develop such a chemical weapon."The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviwing the documents."The notion was that a chemical that would probably be pleasant in the human body in low quantities could be identified, and by virtue of either breathing or having their skin exposed to this chemical, the notion was that soliders would become gay," explained Hammond.The Pentagon told CBS 5 that the proposal was made by the Air Force in 1994."The Department of Defense is committed to identifying, researching and developing non-lethal weapons that will support our men and women in uniform," said a DOD spokesperson, who indicated that the "gay bomb" idea was quickly dismissed.However, Hammond said the government records he obtained suggest the military gave the plan much stronger consideration than it has acknowledged."The truth of the matter is it would have never come to my attention if it was dismissed at the time it was proposed," he said. "In fact, the Pentagon has used it repeatedly and subsequently in an effort to promote non-lethal weapons, and in fact they submitted it to the highest scientific review body in the country for them to consider."Military officials insisted Friday to CBS 5 that they are not currently working on any such idea and that the past plan was abandoned.Gay community leaders in California said Friday that they found the notion of a "gay bomb" both offensive and almost laughable at the same time."Throughout history we have had so many brave men and women who are gay and lesbian serving the military with distinction," said Geoff Kors of Equality California. "So, it's just offensive that they think by turning people gay that the other military would be incapable of doing their job. And its absurd because there's so much medical data that shows that sexual orientation is immutable and cannot be changed."

When contacted for comment a focus group of young single gay males in metropolitan areas were angry enough to join forces to plan a protest march at the Pentagon. Their demand is that the program be restarted and demand that millions of gay soldiers be ready to date before the holiday season so everybody will have a boyfriend by New Years Eve.

Paris.....Um, I'm Like REALLY Smart

Paris Hilton called Barbara Walters collect Sunday to discuss her state of mind and her experience in prison, saying she used to act dumb but now wants to make a difference in the world. ABC News reports:

"I used to act dumb," she told Walters in the exclusive phone conversation. "That act is no longer cute. Now, I would like to make a difference. ... God has given me this new chance." Hilton confirmed to Walters just how terrible her initial three days in jail were. It might explain why she cried when she was handcuffed and transported back to jail from her Hollywood home. "I was not eating or sleeping," she said. "I was severely depressed and felt as if I was in a cage. ... It was a horrible experience."

Gee, lets see, she never graduated high school. Has NO job, has no life experience beyond partying and getting into public fights with her friends...

She has absolutly nothing of substance about her, nothing to talk about, no experiences, etc... she could have the highest I.Q. on the planet and it wouldn't matter because she is an empty shell. There is nothing for her to talk about because other than converting Oxygen to Carbon Dioxide she hasn't done one thing in her entire life. And somehow, I'm thinking the I.Q. just isn't there so I can't WAIT to see her try and act smart. It's most likely going to be just like when Tara Reid played a scientist in that movie "Alone in the Dark" They made her smart by putting her hair in a bun and having her hold a clipboard throughout the movie. Get ready for Paris's new line of fasion foreward Clipboards.

Somewhere, Tara Reid is Laughing

From TMZ...

Paris Hilton was just ordered back to jail in Lynwood.Hilton left the courtoom in tears, screaming, "Mom, Mom, Mom."One witness described the scene as Paris being "physically dragged" out of the courtroom by a female deputy.

Time for this Sheriff to learn his place.

From TMZ....

The reason Paris Hilton stayed at home while the lawyers and judge sat in court is because the Sheriff's Department refused to pick her up.Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Sheriff's position is that the judge does not have the power to order her to court. The Sheriffs believe they have sole jurisdiction to monitor and control Hilton while she is under house arrest.The Sheriff's Department says they are the only ones authorized to take her anywhere. Thus, the standoff in court.The issue may have been resolved, but that is why the hearing was delayed this morning....

The judge made NOT serving house arrest a condition of her sentance but the sheriff apparently thinks that court sentances are merely a recomendation for him to ignore.....Sheriff, I'd like to introduce you to a very pissed off judge.

L.A. City Attorney going after Paris?

Please tell me that the star fuckers at the Sheriff's dept. are going to catch hell from this guy...

From TMZ...
L.A. City Attorney "Extremely Troubled" by Paris Decision
Another official is blasting the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department over the decision to reassign Paris Hilton to house arrest.In a statement to TMZ, Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo said: "Today I was extremely troubled to learn that the Sheriff's Department has decided to release Ms. Hilton from custody just three days after she was admitted to county jail. My office was not advised of this action. We learned of it this morning through news reports, just like everyone else. Had we been provided with the proper notification, we would have opposed the decision on legal grounds. News reports indicate that the Sheriff's Department released Ms. Hilton to house arrest due to a medical condition. This explanation is puzzling. Los Angeles county jail medical facilities are well-equipped to deal with medical situations involving inmates.I am also concerned that the judicial process may have been improperly circumvented in this case. Ms. Hilton was incarcerated as a condition of her probation. As a result, the judge retained jurisdiction over her case and only the judge has the power to modify these conditions of probation. If Ms. Hilton's medical condition truly warranted a change in her circumstances, what should have happened is the following: Ms. Hilton's legal counsel should have filed an emergency application with the court and provided my office with the opportunity to respond, and then the court could have held a hearing on the matter to consider whether there was sufficient justification to change the terms of his original order.I have directed my criminal branch to immediately explore all possible legal options to ensure that the law is being applied equally and justly in this case.If law enforcement officials are to enjoy the respect of those we are charged with protecting, we cannot tolerate a two-tiered jail system where the rich and powerful receive special treatment. We must ensure that in our city, in our nation, and under our Constitution, justice remains blind."

I AGREE with Al Sharpton??!?!?!?!?!?!?!

From Drudge..

SHARPTON BLASTS JUSTICE SYSTEM: Thu Jun 07 2007 11:45:47 ETReverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network, and one of the country's foremost leaders for civil rights, is blasting the justice system for what appears to be favoritism in the early release of Paris Hilton. "Though I have nothing but empathy for Ms. Hilton whom I have met and appeared with on Saturday Night Live the night I hosted in 2003, this early release gives all of the appearances of economic and racial favoritism that is constantly cited by poor people and people of color. There are any number of cases of people who handle being incarcerated badly and even have health conditions that are not released.I have served several sentences for civil rights and civil disobedience actions and I even fasted which caused health concerns to prison authorities who paid for a doctor to come see me daily rather than release me. This act smacks of the double standards that many of us raise."

Ok, so I agree with Sharpton on something, What can I say..Even a broken clock is correct twice a day.

I'm liking this guy

June 6, 2007 -- " 'OCEAN'S Twelve' was [bleep]ing terrible. I feel like the whole point of that movie was to pay for [George] Clooney's villa in Tuscany. The only heist in 'Ocean's Twelve' was them taking our money" - Eli Roth, director of "Hostel 2," to Boston magazine .

IS it too much to ask that whatever movie this guy makes in the future outgrosses any future Cloony, Pitt, and Damon movies by at least two times? Please?

Sells her kid for Money, Why be Suprised that She's a Liar Too?

From Page Six...

June 6, 2007 -- DINA Lohan, the leggy mother of Lindsay, is always described as a former Radio City Music Hall Rockette - but she's not. After an inquiry from The Post, a spokeswoman for Radio City called back to say an exhaustive search found no record of Dina Lohan, or Donata Sullivan (her maiden name), ever being a Rockette. Execs at Cablevision, which owns Radio City, were said to be indignant anyone would claim to be a Rockette who wasn't. "It's like claiming to have a degree from Harvard when you don't. It's a big deal to be a Rockette," said our source. A Google search of "Dina Lohan Rockette" yesterday turned up 884 links. Biographies of Dina, 44, also say the 5-foot-111/2 blonde acted on the Broadway stage and in commercials - also apparently not true. "Look in SAG [the Screen Actors Guild]. Look in AFTRA [American Federation of Televison & Radio Artists]. Dina isn't a member," said a family source. "She never did a Broadway show. She never did ads."

Wait a second, you mean mother of the year Dina Lohan may not be the upstanding person we all thought she was?! HOLLYWOOD?!

Shia Lebeouf sounds a bit smarter than other actors his age...

"I don't go to clubs, and you won't see me out partying," he says over lunch at Musso & Frank's Grill, the renowned 80-year-old restaurant in the heart of Hollywood that has served customers including Humphrey Bogart, Charlie Chaplin, Nicolas Cage and Sean Penn.
There's a reason LaBeouf likes it there.
"I want a career like those guys, not like a Lindsay Lohan," he says. "She's a talented actress but has made some scary decisions. If I'm perceived as someone like that, I'm going to be screwed trying to give a Michael Caine performance. Being seen just as a celebrity can be as bad as having your movie tank. I want to have a career that's different from some of the people of my generation."

I wonder how long it will be before, when refering to Lindsay Lohan, they will stop with that B.S. first comment of "She's talented but......" Now she isn't, she has never carried a film by herself. The Parent Trap had Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson, Freaky Friday was carried by Jamie Lee Curtis, and Mean Girls, was carried by....the Mean Girls, most especially Rachel McAdams. Every single one of her films in the last several years has bombed. Especially the ones she has tried to carry herself such as Just my luck. So give it a few more years and she will be refered to with the same scorn as Tara Reid.

Obama, no on Gay Nuptuals, yes on Civil Unions

Interesting how bigotry seems to be ok when it isn't directed at the person doing the talking.

I wonder if the black community would have accepted the vote if they were told at the time "We aren't going to call it a vote, since we don't want people to think you are as good as us, so we'll call it something else, but don't worry, it's the same thing." Yeah right, Obama and Hillary need to be honest, either they think gays are lesser forms of humanity or they support marraige. ((I also wonder if Hillary would accept the presidency if they told her that they would call it something different because there were people that didn't want a Woman president.... i.e. don't worry Hillary, you'll have the same authority, we just can't call you the president because it will upset people that don't think women should have that job.))

I'm suuuure that both Obama and Hillary would be fine with both those situations.....wouldn't they?

Wow, thats AMAZING!!!!!!!!

From FOX....

Angelina Jolie’s fading frame is reportedly causing some concern for her close friends and family.
“She’s looking too skinny. People are wondering if she’s anorexic,” a Brangelina buddy told Star magazine. “She was the most beautiful woman in the world, but now she looks sickly.”
However, Jolie’s big brother James Haven has suggested that his sister’s skinny look has stemmed from her philanthropic work as a U.N. ambassador.
"Angie visited Ethiopia and it changed her life,” he told British magazine Closer. “It's hard for her to go home to a very expensive restaurant and order freely."
But whatever the reason, Brad is reportedly encouraging his woman to bulk up a little.
“Brad’s been worried about Ang’s appearance and her weight loss for months,” a source splurged to Australia’s Woman’s Day magazine.
Jolie reportedly insists she is trying to gain some pounds, and is “even eating carbohydrates to show Brad that she is serious.”

Oh My God!!!!!! She's eating Carbohydrates?!!?!? Oh No Angie, please don't go THAT far!!!!! How could you live with yourself if you actually touch the evil carbohydrate (Better known as what our bodies need to live).

Just when you've forgotten how out of touch and insane everybody in Hollywood is, something like this comes along and reminds you.

The Washingtonienne, hiding money in her Panties?

From AP...

WASHINGTON (AP) - Jessica Cutler, the former Senate aide whose online sex diary landed her a book deal and a Playboy photo spread but got her kicked off Capitol Hill, has filed for bankruptcy.
Cutler, a former aide to then-Sen. Mike DeWine, R-Ohio, created the "Washingtonienne" blog in 2004 and began posting racy details about her sex life with six men, including a Senate colleague and "a few generous older gentlemen" who she said paid many of her living expenses.
When the blog was discovered, Cutler was fired. She moved to New York, wrote a novel based on the scandal, posed naked and started a new Web site that describes herself as "a published author who jumps out of cakes for money."
Under the occupation heading of her Web site, it reads: "I'm freelancing."
Cutler has spent much of her time fending off a lawsuit by ex- boyfriend and fellow DeWine staffer Robert Steinbuch, who claims Cutler's blog publicly humiliated him. He is seeking more than $20 million in damages.
In court documents filed in the case Thursday, however, Cutler says she can't even pay her American Express bill, legal fees and student loans. She submitted to the judge a copy of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition filed in New York dated Wednesday.
The lawsuit is being closely watched by online privacy groups and bloggers because the case could help establish whether people who keep online diaries are obligated to protect the privacy of the people they interact with offline.
Cutler's bankruptcy filing further clouds the fate of a lawsuit already mired in contentious pretrial arguments. A federal judge has encouraged both sides to cooperate and perhaps even settle the case, but both sides are demanding personal information from the other and Steinbuch says he doesn't want to give a videotaped deposition for fear Cutler will put it in on the Internet.
Messages seeking comment were left at the office of Steinbuch's attorney and on Cutler's cell phone.

Considering Junior Lawyers in the Senate make in the mid to high 30's per year I'm really curious just what this guy thought he was going to be doing later to justify the 20 million.
As for Miss Cutler, well hopefully she has enough money hidden away to buy some nice slutty outfits for court, And some heels Jessica, judges LOVE heels!

Mary-Kryptkeeper Olsen

From TMZ...

Mary-Kate OLDsen

Although she's just two weeks shy of her 21st birthday, Mary-Kate Olsen is looking rather aged these days. Being a multi-millionaire bag lady is a hard life!Sources on the set of Showtime's "Weeds" tell TMZ that the newly-joined cast member is needing to spend a little extra time in the makeup chair -- to cover up her dark circles and other assorted blemishes! A well-placed source tells TMZ that several crew members were overheard commenting on how surprisingly old she looks in person. Where's a pair of oversized sunglasses when you need 'em?!So why is MKO aging faster than Trader Joe's bread? One possible answer: we're told that when MK is not filming a scene, she spends all her time smoking Marlboro Reds and drinking her trademark Venti-sized coffees. The breakfast of child star champions!Luckily for the celebretwin, our source says producers are ready to make any necessary cosmetic fixes in post-production. Editors are the new plastic surgeons!A rep for "Weeds" could not be reached.

Can't imagine why a diet of smokes, coffee and drugs would effect her looks, it's probably something else, like Global Warming.
