‘I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea’

Imagine the outcry if a white conservative man said this on national TV.

Raven Symone

Daily Mail: The View has become the center of controversy once again, this time after Raven-Symoné admitted that she would not hire someone with a ‘black’ name.

‘I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea,’ the former child star said to her shocked co-hosts during Thursday’s episode of the ABC show. ‘It’s just not going to happen,’ she continued. ‘I’m not going to hire you.’

Raven’s comment came while the women discussed a recent UCLA study published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, which found that Americans make racist assumptions based on people’s names. Whoopi Goldberg introduced the topic and then played a popular YouTube video, titled ’60 most ghetto names’, for the audience. The countdown video featured names like ‘Grapedrankisha’ and ‘Fri’Chickenisha’.

‘Just to bring it back, can we take back “racist” and say “discriminatory”, because I think that’s a better word,’ Raven asked after the clip ended.  Whoopi nodded, saying ‘It’s a much better word,’ but her agreement was short-lived as Raven continued to speak.

‘And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones they were saying in those names,’ she said, referencing the video before admitting she would never hire a ‘Watermelondrea’.

Whoopi’s hands flew to her chest following the comment and she gave the audience a horrified look, but Raven pointed at her reaction and laughed.  ‘But that’s not their fault,’ co-host Paula Faris chimed in disagreement with Raven, as Michelle Collins tried to lighten the mood by saying, ‘Would you not hire me if I was King’Kong’Quisha?’, referencing another name in the clip.

‘Is that mean?’ Raven asked, seemingly confused that her co-hosts and audience weren’t laughing along with her.  Joy Behar then swiftly changed the topic, saying that white people were fond of naming their children after fruits and vegetables.

But Raven’s comments were far from being forgotten as critics took to Twitter to point out the irony of her words. ‘How do you, a Black person with an ethnic name, justify proudly endorsing discriminatory hiring practices on a nat’l [sic] platform?’ asked one user.

‘Not only does “Raven-Symoné” looks and sound ethnic,’ he added. ‘She’s saying this while wearing a bright red mohawk.’ ‘Dear Raven Symone, have you ever heard of that lesson about the stones and the glass houses,’ wrote another.

‘I guess it’s a good thing that @ravensymone wasn’t an interviewer when Whoopi and Barack and Oprah and Condoleeza were looking for work,’ tweeted one user.

Some on Twitter said the comments were even more shocking as the actress had once starred in an episode of That’s So Raven in which her character lost out on a job because of the color of her skin.

That's so racist

‘The View’ Loses Three More Sponsors After Nurse Remarks


Gwyneth Paltrow: “Incredibly close to the common woman”…now buy these shirts worth $6,000

She’s as close to the “common woman” as is the wife of her idol, Obama.


Daily Mail: Gwyneth Paltrow has encouraged shoppers to spend up to $6,000 on T-shirts available on her website Goop. The 43-year-old actress selected her choice of the 11 best tops, which cost up to $350 each, and said women would ‘want 17 of them’. LA-born Gwyneth is estimated to be worth around $136million and said earlier this year, ‘I am incredibly close to the common woman’.

The text on the actress’s website states: ‘When you find the right T-shirt, you want 17 of them in your closet. ‘And you want them to last forever and never disintegrate.’

It goes on to say that designers often stop making discontinue lines, and so advises shoppers to stockpile their favorites. It introduces them as ‘our favorite T-shirts right now – the ones we’re buying in bulk to see us through the next few seasons’. And they’re all available to buy on Goop.

The T-shirts cost from a more reasonable $38 for a simple black tee with white stripes on the arms by Alternative Apparel, right through to $350 for a Mother of Pearl paget tulip jersey. If shoppers take the advice to ‘buy 17’ of the latter, it would cost them a whopping $5,950.

But justifying the purchase of the pricey Mother of Pearl top, the site says: ‘This has the spirit of a T-shirt, but it’s fancy enough to wear to a dinner party.’

Other recommended tops include a $275 plain grey number by NLST, which is described as ‘the fancy solution to old-school thermals’, and a $295 ‘business on the top, party on the bottom’ Mother of Pearl white-sleeved peplum top.

The mother to 11-year-old Apple and Moses, nine, said on CNN Money in March this year, ‘I am incredibly close to the common woman, in that I am a woman and a mother.’

It seems, however, the star may have lost touch with what exactly the ‘common’ woman can afford.


Monica Lewinsky Recruits Cyber Bully Olivia Wilde for Anti-Bullying Campaign

Hypocrite: a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.


People: Monica Lewinsky is fighting to stop bullying, and showing others how they can, too. Lewinsky, 42, strategic advisor and ambassador for Bystander Revolution, is teaming up with celebrities like Olivia Wilde, Salma Hayek, Lily Collins, Michael J. Fox, Rashida Jones, Jamie Lee Curtis and Alan Cumming to launch #MonthOfAction, featured exclusively in PEOPLE.

“Bystander Revolutions’s focus is on the right now,” Lewinsky told PEOPLE. “Simple, practical actions that each of us can do right away to relieve suffering and shift the culture.”

Throughout October, Bystander Revolution will pose daily anti-bullying challenges and actions on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr, as well as by email and text for those who sign up on the organization’s website.

“I am thrilled to be a part of launching Month of Action,” Monica Lewinsky tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Engaging in the daily challenges will help transform our online world into a safer and more compassionate space for everyone. Even just one action is a step in the right direction towards ending bullying and can save a life.”

Lewinsky has talked openly about the bullying she suffered nearly two decades ago. She has called herself “patient zero,” the first private person to publicly lose her reputation internationally.

“I was branded as a tart, slut, whore, bimbo, floozy and of course ‘that woman,’ I was seen by many but truly known by few … It was hard to remember ‘that woman’ had a soul and was once unbroken,” she said in June. “In 1998 I lost my reputation and my dignity, I lost almost everything, and I almost lost my life.”

Lewinsky was inspired to break her silence by Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old Rutgers student who committed suicide in 2010 after he was bullied for being gay. His death brought back her own suicidal feelings from the Clinton scandal, and “my own suffering took on a different meaning,” she wrote in Vanity Fair last year. “Perhaps by sharing my story, I reasoned, I might be able to help others in their darkest moments of humiliation. The question became: How do I find and give a purpose to my past?”

You want to talk about BULLYING? Let’s take a look at what Olivia Wilde has said in the past, shall we?

Feb. 9, 2010 Oliva tweeted this: “Sarah Palin is A F-ing Retard”


In 2010 Ms. Wilde teamed up with MoveOn to inspire voter turnout with a terrifying vision of “ultrawar,” instigated by President Sarah Palin. Of her video, Ms. Wilde said, “I know I stick my neck out there. I have a voice, I believe in what I say and I know what I’m talking about. You don’t have to listen to me.

Some of her most recent tweets (which are oh so compassionate):

Sept. 22, 2015: “Douche. “@doctorow: That douchebag pharma-bro hedge fund guy reversed the medicine price hike”

wilde tweet

Sept. 16, 2015: “Just dangle this piñata from the big toy plane and let these kids go at it! (with above picture)

wilde tweet

March 31, 2015: (Retweet) “Funny Or Die@funnyordie Mar 31 How to send a penis cake to the homophobic governor of Indiana(with above picture)

Jan. 31, 2015: (Retweet) “Jim Field Smith@jimfieldsmith Jan 30 To be honest, any religious organisation which believes in immaculate conception shouldn’t be allowed to pass judgment on reproduction.”

Monica Lewinsky sure knows how to pick ’em!


How are we to pay $ for a Renée Zellweger movie when she no longer looks like Renée Zellweger?

I know movie actresses go under the knife for plastic surgery, but the objective is to enhance their appearance, not to look like an entirely different person.

Remember Renée Zellweger?

This is the cute, squinty-eyed, fresh-faced Renée Zellweger we know, in 2008:

This is the most recent photo of Renée Zellweger, 46, taken in London where she’s shooting scenes for the 3rd Bidget Jones movie, Bridget Jones’ Baby:

Renee Zellweger 2015


Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the two Zellwegers, just 7 years apart:

Renee Zellweger 2008 vs. 2015

It was last October when Zellweger shocked the world with her new look on the red carpet in Hollywood.

Renee Zellweger Oct. 2014

Zellweger dismissed the plastic surgery rumors as “silly,” insisting that she was only wearing a different makeup.

But her appearance on the Bridget Jones movie set reinforces surgeons’ belief that she has permanently altered her appearance with extensive plastic surgery.

Dr. Lyle Back, a New Jersey–based plastic surgeon who has not treated Zellweger said, “She clearly has had extensive work done. But the result is that she’s lost the look that America fell in love with. I see signs of a facelift that has made her face look much less puffy, less rectangular and less tomboyish. Now she’s not the girl that people identify with.” Back said he believes Zellweger also had a nose job and “has had some way overdone lip filler treatments and micro-needling facial treatments.”

While the surgeon feels the work she had done is of high quality, it could play a destructive role in her career. “The goal of plastic surgery is to make you look better — not unrecognizable,” he said. “Bridget Jones is gone forever.”

I recently discovered a sobering pic of Catherine Zeta Jones, who I’d always thought to be stunningly beautiful, before her nose job. Below is a side-by-side comparison. The pre-nose job Zeta Jones looks like a cheap floozy.

Yet another reason we shouldn’t put these make-belief people on pedestals!


Trump is viciously attacked from left and right: raped, murdered, “cut off his balls”

On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced he’s a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination in the 2016 presidential election, he said this about the illegals whom the Obama administration is allowing to pour across our border:

“They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

For correctly saying that there are drug-traffickers and rapists among illegal “immigrants,” Trump is reviled and condemned. Univision and NBC Universal have cut ties with Trump, refusing to air the “Miss Universe” pageant he partially owns; Macy’s has discontinued his clothing line.

If you thought the media pile-on attacking Trump for his comment about “illegal aliens” (a term that is now banned by California governor Jerry Brown) is extreme, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Last night (Sept. 23), in an episode titled “Where My Country Gone” (in reference to Trump’s election slogan “Make America Great Again”), Comedy Central’s adult cartoon show South Park depicted Trump as being raped and murdered:

The same evening, on Fox News’ The [Meghn] Kelly FileNational Review editor Rich Lowry made a crude and vile remark about Trump, saying that in the last GOP presidential wannabes debate, Carly Fiorina expertly “cut off his [Trump’s] balls”:

“…what’s going on here is that last debate. Let’s be honest, Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon.”

Gateway Pundit points out that this is not the first time, but that Lowry “attacks Trump frequently on FOX News.” Trump is demanding an apology from Fox News:

Trump demands apology from Fox News

Given how much The Left-Right Establishment fears him, Trump has my support for that reason alone.

Is it any wonder why good people don’t go into politics?

Emily Blunt apologizes for comments about GOP debate

Since she’s in a movie that opens this weekend, I’m guessing she received a call from the movie’s head honcho, hence the “apology”.

Blunt: Sorry, now please go see my movie!

Blunt: Sorry, now please go see my movie!

Entertainment Weekly: Emily Blunt apologized on Thursday after many people — especially Fox and Friends’ Anna Kooiman — took offense when the actress joked that the Republican presidential debate made her question her decision to become a U.S. citizen.

While at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Sicario actress told The Hollywood Reporter that she thought she’d make a terrible mistake watching the first GOP debate on the same day she became a U.S. citizen.

Though Blunt only meant it as a joke, she received quite a bit of backlash online, prompting her to offer an apology on the Today show Thursday.

“It was so not the intention to hurt anybody or cause any offense, so I really apologize to those that I caused offense,” Blunt said. “It was just an off-hand joke. I think I’ll probably leave the political jokes to late-night or something.”

The movie to boycott:



Susan Sarandon on Her New TV Series Satirizing George W. Bush

Bush still living rent free in that empty space in her head…


The Daily Beast: The Oscar-winning actress opens up about her new TV comedy premiering Fall 2016 on Epix that takes aim at disgraced ex-POTUS George W. Bush.

Susan Sarandon, the Oscar-winning actress, David Bowie paramour, and paragon of timeless cool, has made it very clear that she’s no fan of George W. Bush—you know, the smirking frat boy who, as president, led the United States into a costly war under false pretenses, tanked the economy, and got his ass handed to him on live TV by Kanye West. She was one of the earliest celebrity critics of the Iraq War, and threatened to move to France if Bush was re-elected.

Well, it seems Sarandon will finally get her revenge—on the small screen.

nolteThe star of films like The Rocky Horror Picture ShowThelma & Louise, and The Client is about to begin shooting a new television series in New Mexico, Graves. Created by Joshua Michael Stern (no relation), the 10-episode show is set to premiere fall 2016 on Epix, and will be the network’s first original comedy. Sarandon will play Margaret Graves, the wife of a disgraced U.S. president (Nick Nolte) who has a “come-to-Jesus” moment and decides to go out and repair the damage he’s done 20 years after leaving the Oval Office. Meanwhile, Mrs. Graves flirts with realizing her own political ambitions.

According to Sarandon, the Nolte character is based on none other than George W. Bush. “He’s Bush,” she tells The Daily Beast. “He’s the ex-Republican president who ruined the country, did everything wrong, and wakes up one day and realizes that he fucked up. I’m his wife, and we started out as populist Republicans and, as it happens, got chewed up. So now he’s going through this big thing. Eventually, they ask me to run for the Senate because I’m like the Michelle Obama—a very popular First Lady. And there’s a crazy candidate, like a Trump, and they want me to shoot him down, so I have to decide whether or not I want to run.”

Graves will be both a political satire and a comedy of familial dysfunction, since the Graves family isn’t exactly the most stable former First Family. “We have two kids—one’s coming back from Afghanistan, and the other just tried to torch her house because her husband was fucking around,” says Sarandon.

The actress, who’s turned in a bunch of cameos and recurring parts over the years on television shows like FriendsChappelle’s Show30 Rock, and Louie, confesses to having been hesitant about joining the TV ranks, but couldn’t pass on such an excellent script.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” she says. “Hopefully it’s funny. Nick’s part is fantastic—it’s just so Nick. I’ve said no to TV so many times, but this one sounded so intriguing.”
