  1. I have never liked Chrissy HitchCOCK!

  2. On "Chekov": I'm going to keep my eye on him. Yummy.

    On "Hitch": When he's right ("Henry Kissinger is a war criminal") he's right; but generally, he's a doozie. I hope he's straight, actually. :-)

  3. I have no idea what the heck Hitchens was on about. I do, however, know what would have happened to him had he called Wanda Sykes that to her face.

  4. I guess I'm going to be REALLY superficial here, and weigh in on the alleged "Closeted Celeb"--I looked through the 2003 "Sexiest Men", and I honestly think that the only one who it could be would be Hugh Jackman. The pic used on the linked site was not the one in PEOPLE that year, but he did have longer hair then, and the crossed arms do kind of suggest "Wolverine".

    He is a phenomenal actor, and I don't care if he's gay, straight, bi, or likes to rub one off on a tree. I just like his movies, especially the ones where he is shirtless.

  5. Yup--I was right--I think that blind item was a bitchy gossip item, and nothing more, but here is a link that proves that the pic in the item is what I posted.

    Whatever happened to the days of Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons? I wasn't even alive then, but they planted stories better than most landscapers. To quote Archie and Edith, "Those were the days!". :-)

    Oh--and Christopher Hitchens IS a bitchy, bitter queen.

  6. Re: Auckland, New Zealand article. It surprises me that in this day and age, people are still getting infected with AIDS. There is a simple way of preventing it... use protection. So, while I have empathy for the young men getting infected, they knew what the risks were.

  7. Christopher Hitchens is no homophobe people, just read this article:

    Was that a nice choice of words? Definitely not.
    But do we understand exactly what part of Wanda's act he's referring to? No.
    Let's not start bashing the man yet.
    Do you actually think a real racist and homophobe would choose to be so obvious about it?

  8. Well, with friends like Mr. Hitchens who needs even more distasteful enemies. I'm sorry, but a lack of "Political Correct" language does not excuse a lack of decency. Its one thing when the religious right speaks down to us in the name of their "belief", its another when our "friends" do it for an altogether unknowable reason. Humans can be bastards, with or without gods. Maybe religion gives an excuse for bigotry but atheists don't need reasons.
