Isabella is now 10 years old and believed to be hiding in Nicaragua with her biological mother, Lisa A. Miller, a woman who fled the United States penniless and arguably delusional, having renounced her former homosexual life and having blocked custody visits between Isabella and her other parent -- Miller's lesbian ex-partner of many years."

  1. Yeah, well. Dexter should have ended after season six, but (as we knew at that point in time) Showtime and the producers were determined to drain every last penny out of the thing, so they set out to wrap everything up in TWO more seasons instead of just one.

  2. I really, really, really can't stand D-Listed. He is a bully, worse than Perez, who lives to abuse other people. And I hate when a story is linked to his site from here as I don't want to inadvertently give him any more attention or traffic. How can we (and this site) stand up against bullying and then condone Michael K and his immaturity?

  3. Cruise may have been asked to leave the seminary, but he was not asked to leave the church.

  4. Completely agree about Dlisted and Perez.
    Speaking of bullying, I'm tired of people picking on Bieber - which seems to be in style right now. The fact he's a somewhat fem guy is behind 90% of the hate imo. People like Lainey are just giving the crowd what they want.

  6. P.S. The reason Bieber was late is probably because he's stressed from all the bad press he's been getting while in London, where he's been mobbed constantly by fans and press alike, and accused of trying to bring Jaden Smith to a nightclub. All the comments under these articles insist he's a brat, gay, refer to him as "she" or "it", hope for his ruin and/or death. No wonder he's trying to butch it up with that kind of hate.

  7. The day NOM apologies for anything is the same day they will release who their donors are, which despite being ordered by several courts to do, they haven't done. These guck wads think they are above the law and above reproach. But their three-to-five fat cow donors will die eventually, and then where will they be? It's clear that they are funded by rich old farts, but no one lives forever...

  8. @Canadian,

    The British media and Paparazzi are brutal. They make American and certainly Canadian seem like pussycats.

  10. "I really, really, really can't stand D-Listed. He is a bully, worse than Perez"

    You're nuts. I don't visit D-Listed often, but I don't believe he's ever drawn a crude penis on someone's face with Microsoft Paint or attacked someone's children as Perez Hilton has done. Get over yourself.

  12. @Lazycrockett ... That's the adorable character called "Scruffy" in the web series The Outs. He first appears in episode 2 and is played by Tommy Heleringer.

  13. As for the hottie in the blue sweater: I hope that helps, as I wondered too! ;)
