It is a sad but telling story of how highly paid Hollywierd “entertainers” are all stressed because they didn’t get their Oscar Nominee t-shirt in their goodie bag! WTF was that?! Damn! talk about petty entitled asshats. Have one made for goodness sakes! Are you gonna wear it out on the boulevard while shopping? Don’t think so!
And black hole of revelations is now expanded to suck in other venues. Even the hallowed halls of the government establishments are being taken in!
But is it real?
Let me say this about that. As the black hole of fallout from the Harvey Weinstein accusations continues to expand into all the nooks and crannies of America I am both pleased and concerned at the same time.
The Pleased Part
I am pleased to see that with the “conversation”, as they say, started the seemingly endless train of accusations continues. And sadly it, for the most part, has been simply confirmation of the already “suspected” seedy undercurrent in both Hollywierd and government venues.
While the perpetrators are being called out one by one, the most entertaining sidebars are the comments from the perpetrators associates about how they knew about it and should have said or done something. Really?! All of a sudden you get a conscience. Good I guess. More likely simply covering their own asses by voicing faux concern. Unfortunately up to that point they are guilty of collusion. Just as bad!
While most of the accused initially feign innocence, they later fold as the facts pile up. Some others have even gone so far as to admit to the accusations and, in my opinion, sign their own professional death warrant. Good riddance!
A variety of repercussions have come to be. Offers have been rescinded, programing and/or tours cancelled, endorsements and sponsors bail outs just to name a few. And this hits these people right where it hurts the most. In the wallet. Not saying that their reputation is trashed but the money is what they cherish the most.
To those that are in public office the danger is also catastrophic. The seedy undercurrent of politics gets its much needed exposure. Not like we didn’t already get an up-close look in the Kennedy and Clinton scandals! Now political entities are being called out and having to do a political tap dance in an attempt to somehow play it down. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much.
An unpredictable but welcome movement to help “drain the swamp”!

This Is The Concerned Part
Some deserve it but some don’t
My concern is that just like every other hash tag de jour campaign[ #metoo ] there will be an immense piling on by “weaponized” individuals that, for whatever reason, have an ax to grind with someone. And feel the need to act on it. So a simple accusation, however false, will reverberate throughout the web quickly in the digital age. The damage will be substantial. Even if they are proven false the damage is done. Another note is that a large part of these allegations are in excess of 20 years! While I am not saying that they are in any way less traumatizing, it does make for a tough defense. Both intentional and effective.
And some of the allegations are inane, like having your backside touched during a group photo or placing a hand on the knee of someone during casual conversation, really throws the whole accusation scenario into a tailspin. Welcome to human interaction. Many of the actions accusations are far more egregious and are noteworthy. But some being presented now that the movement is in full swing are, in my opinion, highly questionable and suspect.
Beyond the obvious “who the hell is that?” the total ignorance of the residents of Hollywierd are totally brain numb. And they are in total denial as to why their little world of douchbaggery is imploding. Keep up the good work. All we can do is shake our heads and palm our foreheads.
With all the sexual harassment scandals coming out of Hollywood, is it really good timing to wear an outfit with pictures of pornographic posters and your breasts so exposed? Bella Thorne must be missing a sensitivity chip. From NY Post: By now, it’s clear that Bella Thorne isn’t afraid to embrace racy looks, from her […]
Wow! How about you just enjoy your past prestige and jet off somewhere and leave out the political statements. It never goes well.
#WarOnWomen who don’t agree with you. This is rich: From Hollywood Reporter… “Helen Mirren Gets Insulted When People Treat Her the Age She Is.” From the article: Mirren doesn’t want anyone treating her like her age, either. “If people treat me like the age I am, I get absolutely insulted, really cross. I hate when people […]
If you weren’t already disgusted with filmmakers and actors this may just put you over the edge! Robert Pattinson thinks that stroking a “fake” dog penis in a movie scene is worth doing! I leave it up to you to make your own decision. This is total insanity. The fact that this was even part of a scripted scenario is disturbing all by itself.
A fake dog penis was used as Robert refused to do the scene with the animal. Well, guess THAT makes it A-OK! Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing. From Daily Star: Robert Pattinson got the mother of all requests on his latest film. The Twilight star, who used to date Kristen Stewart, told US […]
Truly a very misguided goof!
Sarah Jessica Parker has a new HBO show called Divorce, which premiered last Sunday. The premise of the show:
The Divorce TV show revolves around a middle-age woman (Sarah Jessica Parker) who begins to reassess her life after more than a decade of marriage while raising two children. She finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.
How many people watched the series premiere? Just 570,000.
She should be concerned about that dismal show performance. Yet she’s worried that she and her husband Matthew will be killed if Trump is elected.
From Fox News: Actress Sarah Jessica Parker is living in fear of a Donald Trump presidency.
The Hollywood liberal is “terrified” that even if the Republican presidential nominee is not elected, his supporters will attack her and her husband, Matthew Broderick, and her friends.
“But even if, please…
