Dogs in bags not good Kaley.
Mr V would be ashamed if I wiped his mouth in public. Not sure if it is our relationship or Anne's that should be judged.

Candyland said...

What is on Eva's sister's head? Looks like a birthday cake tiara!

sandybrook said...

Gee Kaley again quelle surprise!
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes? :((
AnnE I need something wiped down :)

msgirl said...

Violet, I was just gonna express my disdain for purse dogs. They're dogs not accessories and want to walk and sniff some butts!

Renoblondee said...

No dogs in purses or bags. Gag me.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Kaley is walking another dog that is out of frame, the pup in the purse is a new rescue critter. : )
Don't worry Gary, somebody will say something worse soon and it will be forgotten...for a while.
Feliz Cumpleanos, Longoria sister. Unless that is a souvenir from the worst bachelorette party EVER...

GatorGirl said...

Mine too! I'd get the I Can Do It Myself Woman look

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Kathy looks happy, and better like this.

rolotomassi said...

FingerBinger said...

Who is Vanessa Carlton?

Wendy said...

Don't judge me for knowing this, but Vanessa Carlton is not pregnant "again", this is her first child

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

Umm, I know where you got that hat Kristen Bell. I have the same one!

Snootches said...

"Makin my way downtown, walking fast, faces pass and I'm homebound" She had one hit with A Thousanf Miles and dated Stephen from Third Eye Blind

Min Pin Girl said...

One of my little rescue dogs loves to get in my bag. Every time I set my bag down she tries to crawl inside. I emptied out a sling style bag and when we go to PetCo I let her ride in the empty bag. At the store I put her down on her leash but after awhile she wants back in the bag. She's 9 years old and the girl loves to ride.

Violet said...

Maybe they're still in the flushes of young love. We moved on from that approx 21 years ago.

Mark Kaepplein said...

What exactly did Oldman say that was so terrible? That Mel Gibson disrespecting Jews in an industry full of Jews was a bad career move?

Angela said...

That the Jews were reacting too fast and should learn to have a thicker skin. "He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all f–king hypocrites."

I don't want to use Mel Gibson as a scapegoat, but not everybody has a dad who's a holocaust denier and repeated his son a lot of things about the Jews. Gibson is a troubled guy and his issues run deeper than something "we've all said". The drunken arrest basically revealed a lot of stuff about his confused state of mind.

And what's normal about drunkenly assessing that Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world? Does a drunken Jew blame themselves or anybody else for all the wars in the world? Does being drunk make saying antisemitic stuff okay for "we all"?

Mel Gibson had worked for years with Jewish directors, such as Richard Donner. They're basically responsible for making him one of the biggest stars in the world. And a part of him thinks that these guys are busy starting wars in their spare time. So, if you had a coworker, maybe even a friend, who's drunk and assumes you're part of an evil secret society that does nothing but harm to the world, how would YOU react?

Gibson is a mess, a guy who won't be able to escape all the awful teachings his father gave him. Oldman is an extremely talented actor (check Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy if you want to see him outside of a franchise in a great understated part), but he's also an idiot.

PJ said...

Not so Wendy. Vanessa shared a really painful story on her blog a year or two ago about finding out that she was pregnant only to discover that it was a life threatening ectopic pregnancy (growing in her Fallopian tube) and having said tube rupture shortly thereafter requiring it-and the baby-to be surgically removed. (She was a few months along.) It was very sad. Thrilled that she's still able to expand her family!

Angela, I asked about Oldman, not Gibson. The impression I got was that Oldman made an unpopular example choice of Gibson to make a point about political correctness and lynch mobs practicing it.

Celebrity meltdowns seem like a weekly event. Gibson got cast as characters with some crazy. No surprise it came out off camera. The industry seems to attract people with issues, so we shouldn't be shocked when a meltdown happens. Should we judge how people melt down, or cut them some slack for being in crisis?

meme deemed said...

Oldman has always been an ass. No surprise he can't check his own mouth at the door. Talent doesn't excuse bad behavior.

Tina Mallette said...

Oldman was on Kimmel last night I only heard aboutt this on talk radio and they were impressed with the way he handled his mea culpa. They alway have on a media expert on Friday - they call it touchdowns and fumbles in the press.

I dare to say this and be thrown mud but somehow when people who are more right of center politically say stupid things they get villified when say oh Alec Baldwin calls paparazzi the N word or the F word that many gay men find offensive, not all, you know how that is, appropriation I believe is the term, he seems to suffer NO repercussion whatsoever. I mean the people who think he is an a hole did so before his most recent rantings.

erintink said...

Kristen Bells prego again?! Where have I been?!

keetz4 said...

Excuse me but Baldwin was more than villified [sic].......he lost his show.

Just Another HR Lady said...

I always like Judy Greer, she seems down to earth and has been in tons of movies I like. She's in Cursed too, one of the worst/best movies of the 2000's, kind of awfully hilarious as a horror flick, but lots of fun for spotting for future stars, very cool cast.

Marco said...

Think there was a typo in this one. Should be:
Gary Oldman made his first public appearance since his awesome comments in an interview with Playboy.

sugarbread maker said...

Is that Eva Longoria's disabled sister in the Tijuana Tiara? ? Only excuse allowed..
Kaley cookoo just stop the coke use um Kay?
Switch to Pepsi

MissInfo said...

She did reference Oldman. The bulk of her post is exactly what Oldman said in the interview and towards the end she just gives her opinion on Mel.

Sherry said...

Keetz4 I don't think Baldwin lost his show. I believe the show he was on ended for him and everyone.

Sherry said...

I was unaware Bell was pregnant again either.

Such a sad story about Vanessa Carlton. Hope all goes well this time. Must have been horrible what happened the first time.

Scallywag said...

I want to hate Piven in everything he does, but I have to say that I enjoy Mr. Selfridge.

It looks like Eva's sister has on a sash along with the tiara, plus is carrying a gift bag, so I hope they had a fun celebration.

Tina Mallette said...

Yes Piven looks like a serious actor there.

Angela said...

To make it more clear... I think that Oldman is an idiot.

He's against political correctness. Nobody is pro political correctness. But people who challenge political correctness forget they open the door to stupidity, bigotry and hatred.
According to Oldman, it's all right to say something against the Jews, or some expletive against the gays, even when you say it to somebody who's not Jewish or homosexual. "We've all said it." It just takes us being drunk. Or angry.
So, if it's okay, how angry and drunk is acceptable to say awful things? Totally wasted, slightly altered? I take one glass of wine and it's fine to vent against black people, Jews, Muslims, as these views aren't mine? I'm angry against a guy, so it's fine to yell at him that he's a faggot, as it was the worst thing on earth, because anger distorts my understanding of the world?

For the record, Gary Oldman is also convinced that we all say insults when under pressure. This is what he says to defend Gibson: "He's like an outcast, a leper, you know? But some Jewish guy in his office somewhere hasn't turned and said, 'That fucking kraut' or 'Fuck those Germans,' whatever it is? We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That's what gets me. It's just the sheer hypocrisy of everyone, that we all stand on this thing going 'Isn't that shocking?'"
For the record, I'm Jewish (and also male, but that's another story). I've never said any such things on Germans, and if I had, I would be a huge idiot, and ashamed of myself.
And, yet, I think that there are far less Jewish people today who are blaming Germans under pressure or under the influence than people who are blaming for some reason the Jews in the same circumstances. Germans don't actually have to spend their entire life being told they're awful people. At worst that their grandparents allowed awful things to happen with some degree of awareness. Jewish people are reminded regularly by anti-Semites that, by just being Jewish, they're supposed to be evil, malevolent, and that they're behind every major tragedy due to their imagined agenda. Yet, according to Oldman, it would be wrong for them to fight for such theories or ideas, as some Jewish guy in an office could yell something against the Germans.

Angela said...

Oldman forgets that the issue with Gibson isn't just that he yelled some crap about the Jews when he was drunk. The real issue is that Gibson is also violent and dangerous while drunk, that he was exposed to racial theories through his father, and that he never felt the right thing to distance himself from these views, or wonder why he would say such things when drunk in the first place.

This is why Oldman is an idiot. Gibson wasn't blacklisted for his drunken tirade. He was blacklisted because it echoed suspicions of antisemitism in his past work (Passion of the Christ) and, more importantly, because he's never tried to address what led him to say such things, which are just an example of what makes the guy violent and unreliable.
His defense of Alec Baldwin is as much flawed. Baldwin worked for decades with gay people. Imagine how pleased they are that, after all those years, the ultimate putdown he can say to a paparazzi is that he's a faggot, as if sexual orientation was enough to make gay people monsters in his book.

Jews don't run Hollywood because they own the banks and they're an organization that wants to milk all the money from the entertainment industry. They founded Hollywood when the movie business was deemed to be a cheap and low form of art or career compared to more respectable paths taken by WASPs, who would often be ashamed a century ago to work in the entertainment business. Being a minority helped Jewish people have no "shame" to venture into the movies or the music business, when they were low-ranked careers, and to have a grasp of what other groups or communities (not just the one you belong to) enjoy, something that often tends to elude the "majority" or more accurately the "establishment", that prefers to take many things as granted, at face value. Jews (or gays, and other "minorities") tend to realize earlier that tastes are not immutable judgements established for mankind by some deity, but stereotypes, social constructions that should be studied and understood. And that's why they have been more successful in such ventures. They are themselves being arbitrarily blamed for various things, they develop more awareness of how artificial and social many values in life are, and they learn how to appeal these values in making popular entertainment.

So, it's even more ridiculous for an actor such as Oldman, a guy whose entire career is to jump into the thoughts and lives of different characters he plays, to make a statement about "a town run by Jews", falling to see the antisemitic stereotype and the fact that Jews "run" (or, more accurately, are more represented than some other groups) for the very same reason he's a good actor — they are able to project themselves into people who are not them.

Baldwin's show was doing "well" for MSNBC in a Friday night death slot. He was suspended for his behavior and a week later the show was cancelled because the heat didn't die down. He definitely lost his show for his behavior. It's a shame too, that wasn't a bad show. There was no yelling and name calling, just thoughtful discussion on a single issue and I was looking forward to the Kennedy Assassination special they had ready to broadcast.

ericaomega said...

He lost a news show on MSNBC after only two shows or something like that.
