They all knew about Matt Lauer: Friends/associates joked about "C*ck of the Rock's" sexcapades at 2008 roast

Matt Lauer
From Daily Mail: Former NBC executive Jeff Zucker who claimed to have never heard ‘a whisper’ of Matt Lauer’s sexual misconduct joked about his in-office antics at an explicit comedy roast in 2008 which was described at the time as ‘three hours of d*** jokes’.
Zucker, who worked with Lauer on Today between 1992 and 2000, was among several guest speakers at the event.
Earlier this week, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said he had to leave it because it was full of jokes about Lauer ‘pushing himself on people’ and ‘having sex with employees’.
While Zucker’s jokes were by no means the most graphic and none centered on harassment or assault, he won laughs from the room by discussing Lauer’s quirky sexual habits.  ‘I don’t want to say Matt is a germophobe, but he’s the only guy I know who uses Purell both before and after he masturbates,’ was one remark. In another crude inference, he told the room: ‘It’s good to see Matt up here and not under my desk.’
The jokes were part of the Friar’s Club Roast at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.
Martha Stewart, one of the other guest speakers, declared to applause: ‘I hear NBC executives call Matt the C**k of the Rock,’ a reference to the network’s Manhattan headquarters. 
There is no footage of the event because cameras were banned except for one which snapped Tom Cruise, another guest speaker, at the start of the event.
Some but not all of the jokes were recorded by a Village Voice editor who took notes under his table. His contemporaneous report of the event resurfaced this week after Zucker’s claim that he had ‘never heard a whisper’ of Lauer’s newly-alleged impropriety.
‘Just got back from the Hilton in midtown after three hours of d*** and p***y  jokes from some of the biggest stars of TV and film,’ wrote The Voice’s Tony Ortega at the time.
The fact that the audience was comprised of 1,900 media and entertainment insiders makes current proclamations of shock at Lauer’s recent firing and alleged misconduct against junior staffers and assistants increasingly unsettling.
‘This was a comedic roast, but there was clearly a vein of truth running through all those jokes. You had Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Jeff Zucker all standing up there joking about his sex in the office, his kinkiness.’
‘They all knew,’ one media executive who was present told Fox News.  It is not known which other NBC executives attended. President Donald Trump, who relished Lauer’s firing last week and declared NBC and Comcast ‘fake news’, was also there.
Noah Oppenheim, president of NBC news, has insisted he was not aware of any complaints as has Andy Lack, NBC’s chairman who announced Lauer’s firing last week.
Current staffers say all were aware but formed a ‘boys’ club’ to protect Lauer and sweep complaints ‘under the carpet’.
NBC stars Meredith Vieira, Katie Couric, Martha Stewart and Bob Saget were among other speakers who took the jokes at the 2008 further. Vieira joked about both her and Couric having sex with Lauer.
‘Look at Katie Couric. She juggled Matt’s balls for six years.  ‘That’s three years per ball. She squeezed those suckers so tight, she left nothing for me. Thanks, Katie,’ she said.

Gwyneth Paltrow says reading mean Tweets is like being in a war

Some Hollyweirdos live so much in fantasy, they confuse real life with the make-belief land of movies.

How else are we to explain Tom Cruise saying his job as an actor is as hard as a soldier in the Afghan war, or Charlize Theron equating media intrusions into her life with rape?

Here’s another Hollywood drama queen.

Gwyneth Paltrow goes braless at the 2010 Oscars

Gwyneth Paltrow goes braless at the 2010 Oscars

Gwyneth Paltrow, who pretentiously called her divorce from British pop singer Chris Martin “conscious uncoupling” (can there be unconscious coupling or unconscious uncoupling?), compared being dissed on Twitter to being in a war.

While appearing at the techy Code Conference in California to promote her bankrupt “lifestyle” brand Goop, Paltrow likened mean twitter comments to the suffering of war, saying, “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing. It’s almost like, how in war, you go through this bloody dehumanizing thing…”

Below is a letter to Goopy Gwyneth from a Green Beret, Bryan Sikes, SFC:

To Miss Paltrow,

I’d first like to start out by saying how terrible I feel for you and all your friends that on a daily basis have to endure mean words written by people you don’t know. I can only imagine the difficulty of waking up in a 12,000 square foot Hollywood home and having your assistant retrieve your iPhone, only to see that the battery is low and someone on twitter (the social media concept that you and all of your friends contribute to on an hourly basis to feed your ego and narcissistic ways), has written a mean word or 2 about you. You’ve hit the nail on the head, war is exactly like that. You should receive a medal for the burden you have carried on your shoulders due to these meanies on social media.

You said, “Its almost like, how in war, you go through this bloody dehumanizing thing and then something is defined out of it.” I could see how you, and others like you in “the biz”, could be so insecure and mentally weak that you could pair the difficulty of your life on twitter to my brothers who have had their limbs ripped off and seen their friends shot, blown up, burned and disfigured, or wake up every morning in pain – while just starting the day is a challenge. How about our wives? The ones that sign on to be there for us through thick and thin, that help us to shake the hardships of war upon our return? And do all this while being mothers to our kids, keeping bills in order because we are always gone, and keeping our lives glued together. They do all this, by the way, without a team of accountants, nanny’s, personal assistants, and life coaches. Yeah, reading a mean tweet is just like all that.

You know what is really “dehumanizing”, Miss Paltrow? The fact that you’d even consider that your life as an “A-list” celebrity reading internet comments could even compare to war and what is endured on the battlefield. You and the other “A-listers” that think like you are laughable. You all have actually convinced yourselves that you in some way face difficulty on a regular basis. Let me be the first to burst your bubble: a long line at Starbucks, your driver being 3 minutes late, a scuff mark on your $1200 shoes and a mean tweet do not constitute difficulty in the eyes of a soldier.

Understand me when I say this: war does not define me. It is a chapter in my life that helped shaped me. Being a husband and father is what defines me. Remember, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never…be close to what war is.

Here are some other choice Goopy quotes:

1. “I don’t want to be rich and I don’t want to be famous.”

2. “I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.”

3. On taking a retreat to Sedona, Arizona: “I’ll never forget it. I was starting to hike up the red rocks, and honestly, it was as if I heard the rock say: ‘You have the answers. You are your teacher.’”

4. “I love the English way, which is not as capitalistic as it is in America. People don’t talk about work and money; they talk about interesting things at dinner parties. I like living here because I don’t tap into the bad side of American psychology, which is ‘I’m not achieving enough, I’m not making enough, I’m not at the top of the pile.’ It’s just kind of like, I am.”

5. “There’s a portion of the movie where something bad happens to me, and I lose my clothes along the way, so essentially I’m wearing a bra and trousers. There are certain requirements, but luckily I have a good base because I work out often.”

6. “Every woman can make time [to work out] — every woman — and you can do it with your baby in the room. There have been countless times where I’ve worked out with my kids crawling around all over the place. You just make it work.” [New York Daily News]

7. Criticizing people for being upset about 9/11: “I find the English amazing how they got over 7/7. There were no multiple memorials with people sobbing as they would have been in America.”

8. “I would rather die than let my kid eat Cup-a-Soup.” [Conan late night show]

9. “We’re human beings and the sun is the sun—how can it be bad for you? I don’t think anything that’s natural can be bad for you.” (Ever heard of rattlesnakes, Goopy? They’re natural too.)

10. “I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a tin.”

11. “When you go to Paris and your concierge sends you to some restaurant because they get a kickback, it’s like, ‘No. Where should I really be? Where is the great bar with organic wine? Where do I get a bikini wax in Paris?’”

12. “I’m just like any other regular mum; cooking, cleaning, wiping butts, picking up after kids, being a wife and helping the kids with their homework.” (Gwyneth Paltrow has a net worth, separate from Martin’s, rumored to be $140 million.)

Tom Cruise says his job is as hard as serving tour in Afghanistan, being an Olympic track star

Grandiose: characterized by affectation of grandeur or splendor or by absurd exaggeration.
cruise
NYDailyNews: “Top Gun” superstar Tom Cruise believes his job as action star in the movies is just as tough as soldiers serving tours in Afghanistan.
“That’s what it feels like,” Cruise said in legal documents obtained by TMZ. “And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.”
In the court deposition, the “Mission Impossible” actor also compares his  Hollywood preparation to the top athletes in the world.
“There is difficult physical stamina and preparation,” he says. “Sometimes  I’ve spent months, a year, and sometimes two years preparing for a single film.  A sprinter for the Olympics, they only have to run two races a day. When I’m  shooting, I could potentially have to run 30, 40 races a day, day after day.”
Cruise’s shocking deposition came as part of his $50 million lawsuit accusing Life & Style and In Touch magazines of defaming him by saying he had  “abandoned” his daughter Suri.
Despite the tough lifestyle, Cruise does admit in the documents obtained by  TMZ that he has only flown commercially once in four years — because he had no other option.
Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Cruise denies abandoning his daughter.  “I have in no way cut Suri out of my life — whether physically, emotionally,  financially or otherwise,” he reportedly wrote. “Even during the times when I  was working overseas and was not able to see Suri in person, we were (and  continue to be) extremely close.”
The superstar actor admitted that Katie Holmes dumped him to spare Suri from Scientology, according to the deposition, obtained by RadarOnline.
Cruise last appeared on the big screen last year with “Oblivion,” a science  fiction effort which received mixed reviews.
Hey Cruise, if your “preparation” is so tough, I’d like to see you apply your skills with these guys – just saying (don’t forget your fake bullets).

Put your money where your mouth is Maverick.

Is Bird Poop the Tom Cruise Fountain of Youth?


It involves mixing poo from a nightingale with rice bran and water which is then applied as a face mask.
And a source told the magazine: ‘Tom (Cruise) doesn’t go in for Botox or surgery but he does pay close attention to all the new natural treatments.
‘He recently started experimenting with the nightingale poo facial after it was recommended by a Hollywood pal and the results have been fantastic.’
