Larry Wilmore Skewers Josh Duggar as More Advertisers Flee '19 Kids and Counting': VIDEO


Advertisers for future episodes of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting (if there are any, considering the network dumped them) are dropping like flies, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

More than a half a dozen companies, including CVS Pharmacy, Ace Hardware, ConAgra Foods, Pure Leaf Iced Tea, Behr Paint, Ricola and Party City have now pulled their advertising from future episodes of the TLC reality show in the wake of star Josh Duggar's admission that he molested several underage girls 12 years ago, including his sisters.

Larry Wilmore took aim at Josh Duggar and his family on The Nightly Show:

"You mean to tell me that the family that goes around saying gay and trans people are pedophiles preying on America's young people actually has a pedophile that preys on America's young people. Oh, I hate pedophiles, but I love irony!"

Wilmore compared the Duggars to Baskin Robbins' 31 Flavors, and The Old Woman in the Shoe:

"When you have a sample size this large you're bound to have a few clinkers."

'The Bachelorette' Baits Audiences With A 'Brokeback Bachelor' - WATCH


ABC's The Bachelorette has released a promo for next week's episode that suggests one of the male contestants vying for Bachelorette Kaitlyn's attention has fallen in love with one of the other male bachelors.

In the promo, contestant Clint says, "Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind...Kaitlyn's not the right girl for me...I love JJ, so I need the rose tonight." He also adds, "We've gotten very close in the shower." Capitalizing on whatever's going on in the Bachelorette house, ABC's official teaser declares, "This Brokeback Bachelor will blow your mind."

Via E! Online: 

It's a Bachelorette—and Bachelor—first: one of Kaitlyn's suitors has seemingly fallen in love with one of the other guys and we are kind of shocked...Now, we're not shocked at a man falling in love with another man. It's 2015, sexuality is a spectrum, and when you throw a bunch of people in a house together, anything can happen. What shocked us about this confession from Clint was the object of his affection: JJ! 

Just last night, JJ was called a "turd" by Amy Schumer, and proved to all of the men in the house that he didn't care about kindness or fairness when it came to stealing time with Kaitlyn.

As for whether there is any merit to ABC's claims of a 'Brokeback Bachelor', only time will tell.

Watch the promo and decide for yourself whether this man-on-man romance looks real or 'reality' (warning: auto play), AFTER THE JUMP...

Eric Stonestreet Reveals How Playing Gay on 'Modern Family' Changed His Life: WATCH

Screenshot 2015-05-20 21.27.07

If you knew nothing about Eric Stonestreet other than his performance as Modern Family’s flamboyant Cameron Tucker, you’d probably assume that the actor was, in fact a gay man. According to Stonestreet, a straight, married man, however, his experience with gay men growing up was rather limited. Stonestreet, a native of Kansas, had little to no interaction with anyone who identified as LGBT. Since joining the cast of Modern Family in 2009, though, Stonestreet feels as if his interactions with the gay community have grown exponentially and changed his life. 

“I’m more on the front lines of what it means to stand up for peoples’ equality and to try people that you don’t choose to be gay,” he explained in an interview with the Huffington Post. "I'm just more active in that community and I feel a little bit more responsible for people's words and actions," he said.
