We are currently living in a world where facts are treated as opinions and opinions are treated as facts. Up is down. Left is Right. Actually, there is no longer a left or a right, only what your opinion of left and right are. Somehow science got brought into this facts vs. opinions bitch fight and Bill Nye HAS FUCKING HAD IT!
“Grief vampire” Tyler Henry is what would happen if that lady with the big hair from Long Island who makes deli workers cry by pretending she’s speaking with their dead sisters had a baby with Rupert Everett. He’s E!’s “Hollywood Medium” and his line of bullshit has captivated celebrities like the Koven. Last Week Tonight host John Oliver recently suggested that Henry is the twink version of your classic grifter, and Tyler responded to the accusation on Access Live. And then he predicted Oliver’s death. (He didn’t but that would have been a fantastic mic drop.)
The mystery of who dropped $7,000 for Russell Crowe’s leather Cinderella Man jockstrap at auction has been solved. But before you go thinking John Oliver is some kind of weirdo who really wanted Russell Crowe’s jockstrap for a “personal” collection, it’s not like that. It will soon be making its way to one of the last remaining Blockbuster stores in Alaska.
My favorite feud happening right now is one between John Oliver, living Postman Pat character and host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight, and Vice President Mike Pence. The feud is over two different children’s books about Mike Pence’s bunny Marlon Bundo. John Oliver is an expert in high-level trolling, so of course he’s winning.
One of the recurring things said during this late-in-2017 Sexual Misconduct Creepocalypse we’re experiencing has been that it’s an issue men need to address. Last night, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver moderated a 20th anniversary screening event for Wag the Dog in NYC. So John, a man, decided to address the recent allegations of sexual harassment against Dustin Hoffman. Except that’s not a conversation that Dustin wanted to have with an audience full of people.
Disney’s latest live-action MWTPTBG (mess with the potential to be good), The Lion King, is coming together and yesterday, Disney tweeted a picture of the confirmed cast. For a company like Disney, that is a very low-budget community theater-looking cast sheet. Not to mention how confusing it must have been when the real star Beyonce saw it. “Can someone explain why both my picture and name are the same size as everyone else? Oh wait, is this like a Destiny’s Child thing, where I pretend I’m part of a group? Ok, gotcha (wink).”
