If you ever watched all three seasons of Growing Up Gotti on A&E, you’ll remember Victoria Gotti pretending to be some kind of Miranda Priestly of Star Magazine while her three sons tried to be singers or princes of Long Island or whatever. It was canceled after the third season, but after last weekend’s box office results, it’s clear people would way rather see Victoria’s staged reality show than watch Kelly Preston and John Travolta sully the good Gotti name with their hairpieces, faux gaudy jewelry, and sneers! And it flopped without any help from Lindsay Lohan. Continue reading
I, and presumably most people with a set of eyes, have always figured Kelly Preston has been recovering from acting ever since was robbed of an Oscar for her portrayal of a Nevada flight attendant opposite pre-GOOP Gwyneth Paltrow in View From The Top. Instead, she’s mainly just content being a mom and sitting on her throne at the Scientology bathhouse while husband John Travolta belts out show tunes and gets massages (many, many massages). Seems like the textbook definition of a happy, denial-filled marriage to me! But a new report now claims Kelly is Xenu Don Corleone in the Travolta household, and John’s too afraid to cross her, so that’s why he’s still in the church! Continue reading
John Travolta and his deep fried platypus lace front may live on another planet (a planet where it’s perfectly okay for your paws to wander to the crotch of a massage therapist without permission, allegedly), but he is an actor in Hollywood and he is currently at Cannes where there’s been a lot of talk about #MeToo. But the pesky details of #MeToo haven’t made it into Johnny’s ears, because he’s a citizen of the globe with a global viewpoint. Xenu, say what, girl?
My weird obsession/revolution with the Cannes International Film Festival continues and these videos of John Travolta in a tux dancing to, and with, 50 Cent at the Gotti premiere after party are not helping matters! The Gotti gang’s in Cannes with the beleaguered movie, directed by E from Entourage (I refuse to call him by his born name Kevin Connolly). Pitbull did the musical score so I’m not sure how Fiddy plays into all this. According to Variety he was at Cannes to pitch his own movie, taking time out of his busy schedule defending R. Kelly on Twitter.
What happens if you take John Travolta, 90’s rap rock, Misery, and a grown out soul patch and put them in a blender? You get Moose, a semi-autobiographical movie about a crazed stalker (John) and his action hero target that’s loosely based on director Fred Durst’s own experience with a stalker. And yes, THAT Fred Durst. TMZ cornered John at a party and asked him about what he’s got coming up, and he took the opportunity to say that working with Fred Durst has been the best experience of his professional career. Again, yes! THAT Fred Durst!
My apologies to those of you who jumped into your end-of-the-world bunker after reading that headline too fast, because you thought that the Four Horsemen were about to run over your ass now that John Travolta has “come out.”
During simpler times in 2011, John Travolta announced that he was going to slap a mob boss wig onto his head to play John Gotti in a biopic called Gotti. Producers threw a press conference to announce the movie and used Lindsay Lohan to get attention for it. (They said LiLo was in talks to play Gotti’s daughter Victoria and that went nowhere.) After years and years of “development,” shooting finally started in July 2016 with Kevin Connolly (that light brown-haired one from Entourage) as the movie’s director, Travolta as Gotti and Kelly Preston as Gotti’s wife Victoria. Gotti was supposed to come out December 15 (just in time to get all the Oscar nominations it was never going to get), but that’s not going to happen anymore. Its distributor Lionsgate has pulled it from its schedule. I wonder why?! A silence has filled the bathhouse in the Scientology Celebrity Center as the boys prepare for their leader to get exposed for the ten hundredth time.
