Crap on Celebrities
#CrapOnCelebrities: Marilyn Manson had a fake gun on stage, is Maria Carey too fat? And are there just too many shows too watch?
Something called the Hollywood Film Awards happened on Sunday. KATE WINSLET won a trophy, and used part of her speech to drool over ALLISON JANNEY. (AUDIO) She said, quote, "Allison Janney is in this room. Allison, I know I don't really know you, but I just wanna be you . . . or just stroke you or something. I mean, we could always kiss, maybe?" So Allison ran up onstage and made it happen. It was just a quick peck, but it WAS on the lips. Check it out the video on the blog. Unfortunately, Kate won her award for the new Woody Allen movie, "Wonder Wheel", and she DID thank Woody, which kind of ruined the moment.
Soul singer Robert Knight died on Sunday. You don't know his name, but you know his biggest hit . . . "Everlasting Love", from 1967. It's been covered so many times that it was a Top 40 hit in the '60s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. He was 72, and he died from an illness, but they haven't said what it was yet
Brad Bufanda, the actor best known for playing Felix on Veronica Mars, jumped to his death early last Wednesday. He jumped from a building in Los Angeles and died of blunt-trauma injuries suffered in the fall. His body was found by a transient. His death has been ruled a suicide. He was also in Malcolm in the Middle, CSI: Miami, and Days of Our Lives. He wrote letters to family and friends days before he committed suicide. Thosarrived the day after he jumped off a building. Not sure if any of those letters came with a reason. He left a suicide note which cops found on or near his body that gave the names of his parents along with a "thank you" to people in his life. He also sent his rep his MacBook laptop as a joke because the rep preferred PCs.

On Sunday night, the night of the deadly mass shooting at a Texas church, MARILYN MANSON took the stage in San Bernardino, California and pointed a FAKE RIFLE at the crowd. The rifle had a microphone on it, so he could sing into it. Oh, and he was in a wheelchair because of that injury he suffered in September, after a stage prop fell on him during a show. The prop was a metal rig with two huge GUNS on it. And here's the icing on the cake: San Bernardino was the site of a deadly shooting that killed 14 people less than two years ago. Obviously, this was a pretty controversial move, but Manson said, quote, "This was an act of theater in an attempt to make a statement about how easily accessible semi-automatic weapons are and how seeing them has become normalized . . ."My empathy goes out to anyone who has been affected by the irresponsible and reprehensible misuse of REAL guns."
The "New York Post" says that MARIAH CAREY underwent gastric sleeve surgery last month . . . because people have been teasing her about her weight online. A source says, quote, "Mariah has always been proud of her curves, but [recently] . . . she noticed it became harder to dance, and she was getting a lot more criticism online from body shamers." On a related note, Mariah is a finalist for the 2018 class of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, along with N.W.A., John Mellencamp, Alice Cooper, Tracy Chapman, Tom Waits, Alan Jackson, and more. Six songwriters, or songwriting groups, will be officially inducted at a gala in New York on June 14. She co-wrote 17 of her 18 No. 1s.
The guy who plays Carl Gallagher on "Shameless" got busted for a DUI
18-year-old actor Ethan Cutkosky -- who plays William Macy's second youngest child on the show -- was arrested and booked for DUI Thursday in L.A. Ethan was driving his orange BMW around 10:30 PM and began to straddle the traffic lanes. Cops pulled him over. He did poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested on the spot. I’m not sure if the DUI was drug or alcohol related.
Name the shows you are currently watching on a regular basis. Hub Entertainment Research recently conducted a survey . Over 2,200 people were surveyed, and 49% said there are so many shows to watch, that it's hard to know where to start. And yes, that's the CORRECT answer. Only 19% disagreed that there's too much content. Last year, new episodes of 455 different shows aired on cable, broadcast, or streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Apple, and Amazon Prime. Ten years ago, there were less than HALF that, 192. Even crazier, we're on pace to come close to 500 by the end of this year . . . and we may even surpass that number.

Kat Denning from 2 Broke Girls posted a few topless pics years ago to kinda do a preemptive strike on anyone who might want to hack her info and post her nudes.

Johnny Depp’s ex-business managers are trying to get him to pay back a massive loan and he may have 5 homes get foreclosed.
The Management Group filed docs Monday to force a sale of Depp's properties -- all of which are in L.A. -- in order to cover the $5 million TMG says it gave the actor in December 2012. They agreed to bail out Depp when he owed he money to City National Bank. TMG says the 5 houses were collateral for the loan, and since he's stopped paying ... they want the properties. A judge still has to sign off on it and for his part Depp says it aint happening. His lawyer is calling it a publicity stunt.
