    I'm an avid recycler, so every little last scrap gets recycled from me. At my house in L.A., I have low-flow showerheads and I drive a Prius. I have horses and often give their manure to my friends for their garden," says Matthew Rhys, adding that on the set of his FX drama "The Americans," "everyone was given their own water bottle at the beginning so that we would cut down on bottles and plastic cups."
    In the Wednesday night '80s-set series, already renewed for a second season, Rhys and Keri Russell play KGB spies posing as a suburban couple who face increasing strains on their arranged marriage. Initially, he explains, Phillip and Elizabeth were equally doctrinaire, but time in the U.S. — and the birth of his two children — have changed him. "I think Philip is in this great transition. It's like stalemate because he knows he wants to make a move and he wants to do something about it, it's just he isn't quite sure how to get out."
    Despite the fact that he doesn't hesitate to kill, "Philip comes from a decent moral place in many ways and he has a love for the lifestyle they've created," Rhys continues. "There's a lot of push and pull in the marriage; the chess game they play with each other where revelation after revelation has come out and the amount of betrayal involved so it won't be resolved overnight."
    That emotional complexity was the main draw for Rhys, previously best known for "Brothers and Sisters," but there were other reasons he deems the role "an absolute career high. It has everything you want as an actor. The action element is fantastic. I have a magnificent stunt double, but we did a few weeks' martial arts training and Joe Weisberg, the creator, who is an ex-CIA operative himself, did some counter-surveillance work with myself and Keri," notes Rhys, who also read and watched documentaries for research.
    Learning occasional lines in Russian "has been a little bit of a linguistic struggle for me," Rhys admits, but he relishes the variety of disguises he's called upon to wear. He also enjoys working with Russell, calling her "an absolute joy. She has an incredibly mischievous sense of humor, which drives me insane, but we do have fun making this show."
    As a boy, Rhys fantasized about becoming a soldier or a cowboy and other "classic boyhood things," and realized if he became an actor he could play those parts. "The glory of this crazy, maniacal job is that you get the opportunity to live out boyhood fantasies. At the moment I'm ticking off the 'spy' one."
    When filming ends next month, Rhys plans to go on a horse riding expedition in Mongolia. "That's my idea of heaven," he says. "I'm looking forward to it enormously."

    Novelist Rebecca Miller, the wife of Oscar-winning method actor Daniel Day-Lewis, has said that living with her intense "method actor" husband has enhanced her writing.

    The 55-year-old actor is known for living and breathing the life of his film characters both on and off the set, but while many women would find waking up to an entirely different persona every morning a bit of a challenge, Miller sees the benefits.

    " I think it’s helped,’ the 50-year-old novelist told the Daily Mail. ‘Writing is a lot about creating characters, inhabiting them.’

    She adds that whereas filmgoers get to see the end result of her husband's work, her glimpses are ‘private, and people don’t get to see’ the creative process.

    Day-Lewis lauded his wife's patience when he accepted his Best Actor Oscar last month for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's historical drama.

    ‘Since we got married 16 years ago my wife Rebecca has lived with some very strange men,’ he said. ‘I mean they were strange as individuals and probably even stranger if taken as a group. But luckily she’s the versatile one in the family and she’s been the perfect companion to all of them.’

    Miller, who is the daughter of playwright Arthur Miller, says she is accustomed to living with her husband's many personas.

    'All his characters are wonderful to live with, in their own way,’ she says, adding: ‘My favourite was Abe .  .  . because he filmed away from home, and I didn’t have to live with him.’

    The couple, who split their time between Ireland and New York, live with their sons, 14-year old Ronan and ten-year-old Cashel, and Day-Lewis's 17-year old son Gabriel by French actress Isabelle Adjani.

    Miller's latest novel, 'Jacob's Folly,' was published last week in the US. It is about an 18th Century Parisian Jewish merchant reincarnated into a housefly in modern-day New York.

    LGBT activist John M. Becker posted audio of Michelle Shocked’s recent outburst at Yoshi’s in San Francisco, and transcribed the important bits.

    Shocked claims her words were misinterpreted and insists “I do not, nor have I ever, said or believed that God hates homosexuals (or anyone else),” but you be the judge.



    Shocked’s message of hate, which came during her encore, starts in at around 4:36 (emphasis ours):

    MS: So it’s not too late. You can jump into this Jesus gang anytime you want. But, um, I was in a prayer meeting yesterday, and you’ve gotta appreciate how scared, how scared folks on that side of the equation are. I mean, from their vantage point — and I really shouldn’t say ‘their,’ because it’s mine, too — we are nearly at the end of time.

    And from our vantage point, we’re gonna be, uh, I think maybe Chinese water torture is gonna be the means, the method — once Prop 8 gets, uh, instated, and once, um, preachers are held at gunpoint and forced to marry the homosexuals, I’m pretty sure that that will be the signal for Jesus to come on back.


    At one point, she seems to dare the audience to call her a bigot (5:40):

    MS: If someone would be so gracious as to please tweet out, ‘Michelle Shocked just said from stage, God hates faggots.’ Would you do it now?

    She then responds to blogger Matt Penfield, who live-tweeted the show, about the likelihood that fans were going to talk about her comments.

    MS: I ain’t scared. I ain’t skeered. This is not a tribunal, this is one woman’s opinion.

    And it’s fun. It’s a lot of fun. I am so committed to loving each and every soul in this room tonight that I could not come here and ignore you. I could not come here and pretend that I was above the conversation, and I couldn’t pretend that I was beneath it either. I had to join it.


    Um, that’s the kind of stuff the crazy guy who shouts Bible verses on the N train says to us.

    At this point the audience is confused and pissed off. It seems like Shocked might get back to singing, when a woman shouts:

    I hope you get wise, Michelle, and realize that there’s nothing to fear. There’s nothing to fear. Everybody is deserving of your — whoever your God is — his love.

    By the 7:42 mark, Shocked has gotten angry (Becker says she “literally hisses” :

    MS: I am sick of Christians filled with hypocrisy, hiding behind the symbol of the cross.

    Audience member: Come on, show it. Show your true self. Come on!

    Audience member: I’m confused. Can you clarify? Say what you mean. Come on, Michelle. What are you so afraid of?

    MS: I believe that the word of God is just what it says it is: the truth.

    By the 8:15 mark, audience members have started walking out, at which point Shocked begins praying in Spanish.

    MS (16:07): Oh, don’t bother to applaud, it’s not needed. [applause] I don’t think I can handle all the adulation right now.

    Audience Member: That’s because you don’t deserve any.

    Audience Member: Everyone should get up and leave. That was rotten! That was a horrible thing to say, if that’s what you believe…

    Audience Member: Somebody over there thinks she means something different. Maybe you’ve been confusing.

    MS (16:31): I’ve got a question for y’all. It’s a sincere question: how are you enjoying reality so far?

    Audience Member: It’s not your reality…

    MS: Sucks pretty much, doesn’t it?

    Audience Member: It’s her reality, not ours…

    MS (interrupting): You can’t have both.

    Audience Member (continuing): Don’t come to San Francisco saying that shit.

    MS: ‘Don’t come to San Francisco saying that shit.’ Let’s take that note. I just got a tweet, it said ‘Don’t come to San Francisco saying that shit.’ Where do I go to say that shit?

    Audience Member: Uh, Arkansas?

    Audience Member: Wow, that’s so weird. You’re so weird.

    MS: Yeah, it is weird.

    Audience Member: Your reality is tweets?

    MS (interrupting): This is not my choice.

    Audience Member (continuing): Your reality is tweets. According to this show, we spent like 20 percent of the show on tweets, 80 percent was a show, and 40 percent was homophobia.

    Audience Member: Get her out of here!

    And then the Yoshi’s management intervenes (17:18):

    Yeah, I’m sorry ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much for joining us tonight at Yoshi’s.

    MS: You’re pullin’ the plug, you’re givin’ me the hook y’all.

    Audience Members: Hell no! Go on! Sing!

    Shocked tried to continue performing for the remaining audience members, but Yoshi’s management started shutting the venue down around her. Passing the hat around for donations, she finally ends her swan song by saying, “God bless us, everyone.”

    Sorry, Michelle—it’s kind of hard to misinterpret what you were saying. Shocked has become increasingly erratic and reactionary since being born again some years back. And sadly, as some commenters have suggested, it does seem like she was suffering from some kind of episode that night.

    We can have sympathy for that, but to go to the media and defend such statements in the clear light of day? That’s simply inexcusable.

    [WARNING: The following story reveals major details about Wednesday's episode ofLaw & Order: SVU. Read at your own risk.]


    svu2
    After weeks of teases and debate, Wednesday'sLaw & Order: Special Victims Unit finally revealed Detective Olivia Benson's mystery man.

    Returning spring shows: Where we left off

    And he is... Brian Cassidy! Sure, the show had planted the seeds of the relationship in the season premiere when Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Cassidy (Dean Winters), who hooked up way back on SVU's first season, shared a kiss in the hospital. But when TVGuide.com visited the show's New York set for the filming of the big reveal, executive producer Warren Leight confessed that when the arc was first conceived, Cassidy wasn't the writers' first choice.

    "We had initially assumed it would be Haden [Harry Connick Jr.]," Leight says. "But there was something interesting between Dean and Mariska. When there was the hospital kiss scene, we were leaning towards it. But we weren't sure how much we were going to pay it off, and then we just decided to go a little farther. I think if we did our job right, everybody looking back will go, 'Duh.' But it's interesting that there's been debate."

    Although the identity of Benson's secret lover might not have been completely surprising, the reveal itself was pretty spectacular. On Wednesday's episode, a woman accused Cassidy of rape when he was working undercover. When Amaro (Danny Pino) and Munch (Richard Belzer) head to Cassidy's apartment to question him, they catch Benson walking out of Cassidy's bedroom — wearing the checkered shirt last seen by Benson's companion on her flight to the Bahamas.

    Exclusive: SVU books Shameless star for episode about violent youths

    So, why has the couple been able to make the relationship work this time around? "I think Cassidy grew up a little bit in the last 13 years," Winters says. "He was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and she was a seasoned cop. I think he went off and he got seasoned. [And] I think there's a little familiarity there, which seems like something she might need right now."

    Hargitay agrees. "There's an ease to them," she says. "They keep going back together because it just feels comfortable and safe and easy. We're exactly what each other needs right now. Both of us have commitment issues and both of us put our work first. So it's unlikely, but it's a perfect fit."

    Then again, the episode seems to have put strain on the relationship a bit. Although Cassidy was ultimately exonerated, Winters suggests that even the slightest hint of distrust on Benson's part could be trouble. "I think the future with Benson is uncertain," he says. "The thing that you want most in your life is your woman to have faith in you, and I'm not sure that she does. That's a real crusher. But there is chemistry there, and I think the two characters do long for each other."

    Get scoop on all the must-see new spring shows

    Leight admits that early drafts of the script did, in fact, feature Cassidy ending things with Benson on the courthouse steps."We went back and forth on it, and Mariska was a little sad to read it," he says. "I think she opened herself up a lot with Haden and got clobbered. ...  I just didn't want to take her heart out of her chest and smash it again.

    "This is a relationship that isn't asking for as much overt risk-taking," Leight continues. "The nature of their relationship is not so much a Mr. Right, but a Mr. Right Now. Sometimes those port-in-a-storm relationships are very helpful. I'm glad that she has a little company."

    Hargitay agrees that Benson is approaching the relationship cautiously, but she suggests that perhaps that approach will improve the couple's chances at longevity. "I think she's a little bit off love," she says. "She doesn't have any unrealistic expectations [about the relationship], but it fills a need. That's the beauty of it. Because she doesn't think that it has legs, that's the reason it might last."

    Check out photos of the SVU cast

    Leight says he'd like to check in on Benson and Cassidy before the end of the season, but acknowledges that the show also has to deal with the episode's other big shocker. While testifying in Cassidy's trial, Amaro is forced to admit that he once carried on a long-term relationship with the sister of the drug kingpin he was targeting while working undercover. Even worse, Amaro learns that he fathered a child with the woman that he never knew about.

    "Amaro is very buttoned-down. He keeps things in control, and I thought, 'I'd like to, in some way, dirty him up or knock him for a loop,'" Leight says. "There aren't tremendous legal implications for Amaro, but there are tremendous emotional implications for him. How do you tell the wife with whom you are trying to figure out your status [about this]? And when does his daughter meet her half brother?"

    Adds Pino: "Amaro came in kind of as a rogue. He's tried to conform to being this detective with a suit and a tie, but he's not that guy. He's been trying to be as close to a perfect SVU detective as possible, but that mask is now off and he's been revealed. To see him as fallible and see him as imperfect is a lifeline. I like to see Amaro struggle, but he's going to do the right thing. Taking responsibility is important. ... Amaro knows his biggest responsibility is to his kids."

    And how will this pair of reveals affect the partnership between Benson and Amaro? Although Pino admits his character felt betrayed by Benson's secrecy, he doesn't predict any irreparable damage. "Any relationship that is solid is forged with controversy and conflict," he says. "I think we understand each other, we trust each other and we have the ability to hurt each other. Amaro is hurt by her in the episode, but are they past the point of not being able to reconcile? Absolutely not. Partners take a hit and learn from it and hopefully it makes the relationship stronger."

    What did you think of the episode's many reveals? SVU airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC.

    This one is truly a story of heroism with a touch of hulk-like strength.

    Chris Masters

    Former WWE star Chris The Masterpiece Masters saved his mother who was trapped in her burning house by literally pulling a tree from the ground and using it to bash through a window.

    It all started when the wrestling champion received a call from his uncle Tuesday night saying that his mother's neighbor had gone off the deep end and barricaded himself with her inside her Los Angeles home, reports TMZ. The neighbor threatened to burn down the house if anyone tried to enter. Masters, real name Chris Mordetzky, tried to calm the man down, but it didn't work and he was forced to call the cops. When they showed up, the neighbor set the house on fire. That's when the wrestler uprooted the tree with his bare hands and tossed it through the window to get to his mother.

    I hope that stupid neighbor gets locked up .......

    (Don't hate me just yet, bbs, the show is over next week and this post is an excuse to bitch about Coco and/or praise Naomi, whatever you like best)


    Meet supermodel (and star of “The Face”) Coco Rocha (center, posing with her team of models) who’s sharing her experience filming the high-stakes modeling competition on Oxygen. Rocha, Karolina Kurkova and Naomi Campbell each selected four girls to compete on their team, with losing teams submitting models for elimination each week. In her sixth blog, Rocha dishes on model faux pas and backstage drama.

    This week’s episode of The Face is all about being a brand ambassador. The most envied campaigns in fashion and beauty nearly all require that the model be able to speak, sometimes extensively, about a product. Learning how to communicate as a brand ambassador is a must.



    Lights, Camera … : The challenge is a red carpet press event thrown by a magazine. The clients are journalist William Norwich and iconic model Pat Cleveland, both experts on red carpet etiquette, who will look at how the girls walk and hold themselves in front of press, photographers and fans, as well as they answer questions. Billy and Pat teach the girls how to pose for the cameras in their Guido Maria Kretschmer gowns, and remind them that “to admit when you don’t know something” is the height of intelligence. In other words, no making stuff up.

    On the red carpet, Ebony (Team Karolina) breezes through a tough question from Wendy “How You Doin’” Williams about her children having different fathers. Devyn tells Wendy that she doesn’t categorize herself as a “black girl model” and Naomi calls her out. “That’s a disgrace!” she says, throwing Devyn off her game and making her think she has lost it for her team.

    Next, Jocelyn (Team Naomi) is upstaged by former pageant queen Zi Lin on the red carpet. Jocelyn refuses to answer a question about her mystery “reality star boyfriend.” Zi Lin is asked the name of her eyeshadow (by Ulta, the brand these girls represent) and instead of admitting she doesn’t know, she starts talking about how her name means purple in Chinese and then says of the eyeshadow “I call it Ulta Special Purple.” Googling that product name does not get you very far.

    Team Coco does well. Margaux quickly fires back at a negative comment about her height with the classic example of 5-foot-7 Kate Moss. Although inaudible to anyone else, Naomi thinks she hears Margaux mispronounce the apparently complex and nuanced name ‘Moss’ and calls her out on that. It’s an act both distracting and completely uncalled for considering no one criticized Zi Lin’s pronunciation, ever.

    Adoring Public: Team Karolina wins and Naomi gives the news to her girls, saying, “We’ve won three challenges, Karolina has won three challenges, and Coco’s won zero.” Although technically correct, my team won the biggest challenge of all: the public vote. Fans of the show gave Team Coco 70% of the popular vote online, leaving just 18% for Naomi and 12% for Karolina. Whatever the outcome of The Face’s challenges, the people have spoken and they loved the way my girls played the game.

    Karolina is faced with the difficult task of sending two girls home this week. Apparently Naomi’s name-calling last week made no impact on her as she puts Zi Lin and Margaux, arguably the two strongest girls in the competition, through to the finale. Stephanie leaves with her head held high and says she is walking away as a model and that she never could have said that before.

    Talk That Talk: Of course the show cannot end there. Despite the fact that both of our teams lost, Naomi seems determined to make Team Coco feel like somehow we’re the real losers, saying she’s “yet to be inspired” by us.

    Regardless of how the points are divided, I’m very proud of my team. As aspiring spokespeople for Ulta Beauty, none of my girls made up an imaginary brand name like Zi Lin did. “Do not say my girl lied, you better re- check your facts,” says Naomi. I remind her those were the client’s words, but Naomi couldn’t care less and goes off topic telling me “Check your lipstick, before you come and talk to me, because you’re wearing it.” For the record, my purple lipstick was not called “Ulta Special Purple.”

    source

    It sure can be just PR but damn, Coco is going out of her way to make it clear she can't stand Naomi (and how annoyed she is by Zi Lin). And yes non-watchers, you should be watching this show.

    Tribal switch up week!



    New Bikul (Purple) Tribe: Phillip, Corrine, Dawn, Cochran, Julia, Matt, and Michael

    New Gota (Orange) Tribe: Brenda, Andrea, Malcolm, Erik, Eddie, Reynold, and Sherri

    The new Gota tribe dominated the challenge, handily winning immunity.


    Matt was voted out with 4 votes, Julia received 2 votes, Dawn received 1 vote.

    I loved Corrine's commentary this week. I forgot how much I enjoy her sass.

    Next week: Phillip sucks. Malcolm is awesome.

    If you’re unfamiliar with Kill Bill, it’s a two part Quentin Tarantino series featuring Uma Thurman as the Bride, neé Beatrix Kiddo, an assassin newly awakened from a coma who sets out to kill all the people who put her in it and took her unborn child, including the child’s father, Bill. In some of the most famous fight scenes in the series, she wears a yellow tracksuit with black stripes,while Flight of the Bumblebee plays in the background.

    If you’re unfamiliar with parasite wasps, they’re the xenomorphs of the wasp world, in the genus Braconidae. Every insect in Braconidae has one thing in common: they lay their eggs in the sometimes still living bodies of their prey, so that when the babies hatch they’re already inside their first meal. New species Cystomastacoides kiddo has indeed been named after Beatrix, and yes, it is indeed bright yellow.

    Thailand native Cystomastacoides kiddo is one of only four species in the genus Cystomastacoides, which was previously thought to only include a single species. The others are native to China and Papua New Guinea. There are lots and lots of species of parasitic wasp, each with its own favorite prey/egg incubator, most of which are other insects.

    Many of them have really impressive (and a “damn, evolution, you scary” way) adaptations that aid their particular form of larval development. In order to keep their hosts from rotting after they’re killed, some of the secrete “antimicrobial substances,” in a way embalming the corpse. Others, however, implant their eggs without killing the host, and have adaptations like being infected with symbiotic viruses that compromise the host’s immune system so that it doesn’t harm the forming larvae. Some wasps even mess with the neural functions of their prey, zombifiying them into staying in one safe (for the larvae, at least) place even if they are starving, or otherwise into taking steps to protect the wasp babies that are eating them from the inside out.

    In conclusion: Parasite wasps are terrifying and awesome. Beatrix Kiddo is also terrifying and awesome.

    TrekMovie first broke the news that a new longer Star Trek Into Darkness trailer was coming with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which opens next week. We have now been informed that this new international trailer will be released early – specifically midnight tonight. Paramount has also provided us with a couple of new Into Darkness images. Check it all out below.

    International Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer Coming Midnight Tonight

    Paramount’s international arm has decided to release their new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness a week before it will be seen with screenings of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The new trailer will debut online at iTunes tonight at midnight (or 12:01 AM Thursday March 21st – Pacific Daylight Time). Like with the ‘announcement trailer‘ which was released in early December, there will be many localized versions of this new trailer (UK, Germany, Japan, etc).

    The new trailer is expected to be around 2 minutes and 20 seconds long and you will be able to see at TrekMovie.com as soon as it goes live. Shortly after the release TrekMovie will also have our usual shot-by-shot analysis. Until then, Paramount has provided a couple of preview images (below). These images will also be made available via the new Star Trek app.




    Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto in "Star Trek Into Darkness"



    Benedict Cumberbatch as John Harrison in "Star Trek Into Darkness"



    The new trailer coming at midnight is being described as the "international trailer" and will be attached to international screenings of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which opens worldwide next week. However, being that there doesn’t appear to be a new domestic version of this trailer, screenings of the G.I. Joe movie in the US and Canada will likely include the recently released ‘alternative teaser’ which premiered with Oz The Great and Powerful (see that below). This means that a "theatrical trailer" is still to come for domestic theaters (likely sometime in April). It isn’t known how closely that domestic trailer will resemble the international trailer which will be released tonight.

    If you are a female who is into sports, then you have probably drooled just a bit over handsome 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. [Guilty!] This weekend, he brought all the girls to the yard as he made a club appearance in Atlanta at Mansion Elan, along with the likes of Mike Vick and T.I., but allegedly while he was partying, some naive young lady who had flown out to see him was left stranded at the airport.




    The Story told by a friend Via Necole Bitchie VIA Robert Littal of Black Sports Online

    Shame on you Colin Kaepernick!!

    Why am I mentioning this guy? Well, a friend of mine contacted me a few days ago and asked if I could help out a young lady that was stranded at the airport and didn’t know anyone in Atlanta. Any friend of his is a friend of mine, so I agreed to help the young lady out. I spoke to her briefly and luckily she had found a hotel close to the airport. I wasn’t able to pick her up, but I was able to be a sympathetic ear to her and give her some advice.

    What I found out was that allegedly this young lady flew here to see Colin.





    They had never met in person only on Skype and talked on the phone, for five months. I also fell victim to this recently, but that is a whole other story. Now that the season is over he had free time for them to finally meet.

    When she asked if he could pay for half her ticket, he gave her an excuse of being on a budget cause he helps out his family. She decided to come anyways.

    That morning before she boarded the plane she text him to let him know she was on her way. He didn’t respond. They spoke the night before and he said he had workouts in the morning so she didn’t think anything of it. She checked her phone on her layover and he had responded with “I’m doing too much, but I will be there to get you”

    Once she arrived in Atlanta she called him to let him know where she was so he could pick her up. He didn’t answer. She text him. He didn’t answer. Delta called him. He didn’t answer. She sat at the airport for over 6 hours waiting to hear from him. He never called or answered her text.


    Now why would you do that to someone? He knew that she couldn’t afford the ticket because she had tuition to pay and yet he let her buy her own ticket.

    Not only was she out the ticket money, but she was also out money for a hotel. Now I know most of you are thinking she should have known better and so on, but when you are being seduced by someone with popularity and money it’s flattering. You feel special that this person has chose you.

    My advice to her, before I knew who it was that stood her up, was to never talk to him again. There is no excuse you can give me that would make up for leaving me at the airport. The only acceptable excuse is if you were involved in an accident and can’t physically call. Clearly if that was the case than the news would have been all over that story. I told her to remember to love herself. Treat herself how she would treat others. If one of her best friends were in this situation do you think she would have advised her to go? Probably not. There was a valuable lesson to be learned from this situation. The Universe gives us these situations to teach us. I am not sure what her lesson was because I am not her, but I reminded her to look for this lesson and learn from it. After she figures out the lesson than she should also give “thanks” to God for allowing her to learn from her mistakes.

    Athletes are not the kind of men that women should be trying to marry. Women should be more selective when it comes to choosing a mate. Women pass along bloodlines not men. We are the creators of life. In order for a bloodline to continue you need a strong woman to bare your children and a strong man willing to work and provide for his family. This is a topic I will be discussing more as my journey in life continues.

    Have Snooki and JWOWW officially replaced tequila with breast milk?

    Well, they tried.

    The Garden State besties, along with their fiances Jionni La Valle and Roger Mathews, took actual shots of Snooki’s mother’s milk on Tuesday’s edition of Snooki & JWOWW, and we’ve got the clip for you right here on RadarOnline.com.

    The experiment was quite unpleasant for the grown-ups, as Roger compared it to “chugging mashed potatoes.”

    “There are clumps in it — it’s very clumpy,” JWOWWs hubby-to-be dryly said.

    Snooki was less descriptive in her assessment of her own output: “That tasted like sh*t!”


    At that point, the once-out-of-control party girl, who didn’t sip a drop of booze throughout her pregnancy, came to the realization that “in the last 9 months, the only shot that I’ve taken is my own breast milk.”

    With that in mind, the new mom set out to end her sobriety streak at a club, where she was up to her old ways — as JWOWW said, drinking “massive amounts of alcohol” — even making out with her best friend at one point.

    Snooki has put Anderson Cooper up to the ultimate challenge.

    The former Jersey Shore star and new mommy appeared on Anderson Live with her costar JWoww, and after discussing the OMG-moment when Jenni, Roger and Jionni actually took shots of Snooks' breast milk on their show Snooki & JWoww (yeah, that really happened), the pint-size reality star pulled out a couple of glasses.

    "I love you so much that I brought some for you," she told Anderson.

    Was he going to take it?!

    "Oh, you gotta be kidding. Sorry, there's no way. I'm sorry…I can't, I really can't...I'm lactose intolerant," he said. But just because Cooper wasn't down to pound some of Snooki's milk to the head, doesn't mean his staff wouldn't.

    One of the show's employees ran to the stage and took the shot of milk with Snooki! And then she revealed something...

    "It was almond milk," she yelled. "I don't breastfeed anymore."

  • 03/21/13--00:35: NEW STAR TREK TRAILER!!!!!
  • 0 0

    Celebrity nude leaks are most often met with a respectable amount of fanfare and jubilation, irrespective of the celebrity's place in the Hollywood hierarchy. On rare occasions, the nude pics might even be granted instant icon status.

    But Roswell star Shiri Appleby's alleged nude pic leak couldn't even muster a meh from most corners of the net.


    The full-frontal selfie in question first appeared online late last week, and proceeded to drip its way down some of the seedier websites dedicated to celebrity nudes (not to be confused with the classier websites dedicated to celebrity nudes).

    A few intrepid Internet sleuths took on the necessary task of uncovering identifying marks to ensure the pic was legit. For the most part, however, news of the leak never made it past the gatekeepers to the web writ large.

    Why?

    Some suggest the so-called "leak" isn't so much a leak but rather a calculated promotional stunt given the proximity to Appleby's appearance on HBO's Girls.


    And speaking of Appleby's cameo, another possible explanation could be that her pornographic turn (NSFW) left little to the imagination.

    Meanwhile, some are insisting it isn't even Appleby, and the actress herself has so far remained mum.


    And speaking of mum, Appleby is currently "fully preggers" as one denizen of the underweb put it, so this is likely the last nude pic of her that's likely to emerge for some time.

    And that alone deserves at least an honorable mention.

    Before I stumbled across this article today I didn't even realize that this pic had been on the net (and apparently it released a week ago right before the Girls season finale). So what do you guys think... did some asshole leak the pic or is this just calculated (failed) promo for the season finale of Girls?

    Original Synopsis via the Official Site
    TODD, a 60-something loner with a twitch, follows young JESSICA (7) and her MUM home from school. He waits until nightfall before breaking into their house and creeps into Jessica’s room. Lifting the helpless, sleeping child off her pillow, he locates… a tooth! In a fit of compulsion, Todd crushes the tooth and snorts it from Jessica’s bedside table. Wings burst out of his back and he leaps from her window, freed for another short while... until his tooth fairy addiction hits again. The next day after school, Jessica heads towards an ice cream van, a gleaming new coin in hand...

    Those who helped with the funding for the film received early copies of the DVD and a personal letter from the filmmakers saying this:

    Dear Backer,

    Thank you for both your on going support for our project and patience in receiving your rewards for your fantastic contribution!

    The good news is the movie is now complete and we're so proud of it! It has just premiered at Australia's biggest short film festival, Flickerfest, and was by all accounts really well received. Thanks to its programming there, it's now eligible for submission to BAFTA next year, which is a fantastic start!

    We're sending out all the rewards today, so depending on where you are in the world you should receive them soon. However, our relationship doesn't end here. Over the course of the next year we'll continue to send the film out to festivals and in most cases they require that film hasn't been shown to the general public in their country or, most importantly, online.

    With that in mind, whilst we'd love for you to share your thoughts on the movie far and wide, please, please, please refrain from posting it on the web, sharing it or distributing it in any format. We'd love for the movie to get into as many festivals around the world as possible and it would be heartbreaking for it to be suddenly ineligible because it no longer fulfils that criteria.

    We're so grateful for your contribution and hope that you'll continue to help us take the movie as far as it can go and to as many festivals as possible.

    Lastly, and most importantly, we really hope you enjoy either the exclusive link, signed DVD, the behind the scenes stills and any other reward you receive. This whole journey has been fantastic and we hope you're excited by the result.

    Thank you again!

    Best wishes,
    Jake and Ben

    Additionally, the British Council Film released two official stills on their website of Rickman, Whittaker, and newcomer Lola Albert in character.

    This sounds/looks kind of intriguing (and perhaps a little stalker-dude-creepy) even though the film is under 10 minutes long. Hoping there will at least be a 2 minute trailer out soon.

    Edit: I'm sorry about the first source links, mods. If there's still an issue with the sources, please let me know so I can fix them. Thanks.

    Dear Ms. Williams,

    I cringed when I saw that you “dressed up as a Native American.” While some have called your decision “risqué,” I’d call it deeply offensive. Still, I was going to ignore your foolish costume until I saw a recent interview in which you shared your inspiration for Oz the Great and Powerful. In it, you compared Natives to Munchkins, and I knew then that this letter was necessary. What you’ve said and done is not only disrespectful—it’s dangerous. I hope you’ll read through this letter and think twice before once again choosing to participate in actions that preserve deeply racist convictions in popular culture.

    By wearing a braided wig and donning feathers, and calling that “Native American” in a photo shoot, you’re perpetuating the lazy idea that Natives are all one and the same. Because you were born and spent your childhood in Montana, I expected more from you. Montana is home to seven reservations, where Natives from more than a dozen state or federally recognized tribes and nations reside—each with its own history, culture and language.

    The United States federally recognizes and has established government-to-government ties with nearly 600 Native nations. And while these nations share in common that they constitute the people who descend from the continent’s original inhabitants, they are otherwise unique (and not one of those nations wears braided wigs and feathers as if to represent their people). By dressing up as an imaginary Native, you’re working to conceal both the history and the presence of real ones.

    I suppose that, had you chosen to wear a headdress, it may have been worse—but the critique remains the same. As Adrienne Keene eloquently points out, playing Indian not only promotes stereotypes, but violates profound spiritual significances, is tantamount to wearing blackface and prolongs a violent history of genocide and colonialism. You’ve done all of that with your photo-shoot costume.

    But it’s not just what you wore, Ms. Williams. It’s also what you said. In an interview published in the Los Angeles Times last week, you claimed that it is difficult for you to grasp Oz because “Quadlings, Tinkers and Munchkins didn’t mean much to me; it wasn’t my language.” I don’t blame you—I wouldn’t know what to make of these fictional roles, either. Your character in the film, Glinda, holds dominion over these adorably named personalities, and I imagine you had to dig deep in order take charge and lead them. But rather than delving more intensely into the fantasy of Oz, you declared that when you thought of these Munchkins “as Native Americans trying to inhabit their land or about women getting the right to vote, it made a lot more sense.”

    Native Americans are not Munchkins, Ms. Williams—and neither were the suffragettes who fought for your right to vote. To even suggest a comparison between imaginary Munchkins in a film and Natives in real life fighting for untold stakes is perilous because it sustains the entirely racist notion that Natives are cute creatures that require safekeeping. Unlike the costume you wore and later discarded, Natives cannot shake off five centuries of injustice after a photo shoot. There is no photo shoot. The struggles for Native land, sovereignty, healthcare, education and even running water remain real yet silent. That silence is only deepened when you make ludicrous statements that liken Natives to Munchkins.

    Your remark illustrates that in your imagination, the struggle for land and women’s suffrage are battles that took place in a distant past. But while reality indicates that women have long secured the right to vote, Natives are still fighting—not only for land, but also for voting rights. In your 2010 film, Meek’s Cutoff, your character defends a conveniently unnamed Cayuse played by Rod Rondeaux. I take it you know that Rondeaux grew up on the Crow Nation, not terribly far from your hometown of Kalispell, Montana. But did you know that Native voters living on the Crow, Northern Cheyenne and Fort Belknap reservations were disproportionately disenfranchised in the last election—an essential repeat of every election since Natives were granted US citizenship in 1924?

    Along with many others, Tom Rodgers (Blackfeet) fought tirelessly for Natives to have equal access to early voting and late registration through satellite offices in Montana, but was stalled at every turn by nearly unbelievable odds. One of the people who blocked those efforts is married to a direct descendant of George Custer; another is a judge whose racist e-mails drew outrage, although he kept his powerful post. November’s election came and went, and after a long series of legal maneuvers, the case heads to court one week from today, when opening briefs in federal lawsuit will be heard. Rodgers, whose commitment is finally beginning to pay off, isn’t new in the political arena—in fact, he blew the whistle on Jack Abramoff, and is a powerful strategist fighting on behalf of Natives. Needless to say, he’s no Munchkin. The fact that I’ve had to spell that out for you in this letter might be funny if it weren’t so preposterous.

    One line I remember from the original Oz is that “There’s no place like home.” Yours is Montana, Ms. Williams. In an interview a couple of years ago, you explained that your great, great grandmother stowed away on a boat from Norway to Ellis Island. This undocumented immigrant ancestor of yours then traveled in a covered wagon to Montana—which is how that became your childhood home. It’s good to know where we come from. In your case, your home state boasts one of the highest Native populations in the United States. I would hope that you learn a little more about it. Since you made the decision to talk about “Native Americans trying to inhabit their land,” I suggest you start by learning about the struggle of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians—there’s no place like home for them, either.


    Sincerely,
    Aura Bogado

    I know that there have been a couple of posts about the photo shoot itself but this is the first time that I've heard her Munchkin and Native American comparison let alone seen a response to it so I thought I would share.
