Crap on Celebrities
#CrapOnCelebrities: TMZ Releases More LaBeouf Footage, “America’s Got Talent” Winner Arrest for Domestic Battery, Woody Harrelson Opens Up About 2002 Foursome AND MORE!
The mom who shared that picture of her son at the Orange County Pride Parade in California is speaking out after seeing that James Woods posted on his Twitter feed about it. The picture shows herself and her husband by their son with signs that say “I love my gender creative son!” and “My son wears dresses & makeup… Get over it!!” Woods tweeted it with the caption: “This is sweet. Wait until this poor kid grows up, realizes what you’ve done, and stuffs both of you dismembered into a freezer in the garage.” She said Woods is misinformed. “LGBTQ youth don’t hurt their parents, they hurt themselves. We’re trying to raise our son in way that he doesn’t fall into those behaviors. His tweet was so uninformed. LGBTQ youth do not kill other people, they kill themselves.” So yesterday Woods took to Twitter again to defend himself: “Some children can be ruthlessly cruel to children who are simply different in any way. I humbly suggest making your child a target is unwise.” He added that he is not homophobic as critics allege, writing: “I spent my entire adult life in the New York theatre scene, kids. I have more gay friends than Liberace. So let’s stop the homophobia train.”
TMZ released more videos of SHIA LABEOUF throwing tantrums after his arrest in Savannah, Georgia over the weekend . . . and there’s even more enraged, drunken RACE-BAITING. It’s unclear what got Shia so fired up about race . . . but he thinks he was only arrested because he was white, and not at all because he was WASTED. He’s upset at the black cop for hauling him in for bumming cigarettes, and he’s mad at the white cop for going along with it. Obviously, both were just doing their jobs. The latest videos have Shia telling the black cop he’s going to hell, and telling the white cop that he must be feeling ashamed because his wife prefers black men. Regardless, Shia released a statement last night admitting that he’d sunk to a, quote, “new low.” He said, quote, “I’m deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuse for it. “My actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint. “My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst . . . I’ve been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”
On Monday, Kim Kardashian shared a Snapchat but on Tuesday, fans noticed what appeared to be lines of cocaine on a table in the background of the post. At first she said it was candy from some candy party. Later that night she poster on Twitter saying it was just white streaks in a black table. But is this just a diversionary tactic? Some observers claiming the fake-scandal is just her attempt to distract fans from her brother Rob Kardashian’s mega-scandal.
America’s Got Talent winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. was arrested Monday night. He was charged with domestic battery and assault and was released on a $3,500 bond. The arrest came after an alleged physical fight between Murphy and a woman at his home. She says that he hit her in the face with a golf club, slapped her and hit her head against the sidewalk. The unnamed woman later received medical care for her injuries. Murphy says the woman was his girlfriend and claims she attacked him with a golf club and knife. “In defending myself, she obtained some bruises and swelling on her face,” he said in the statement. “I did not strike her.” The pair reportedly share a six-month-old child.
Dance Mom Abby Lee Miller has surrendered. She turned herself in to begin her 366-day prison sentence in Victorville, California, on Wednesday, arriving in the back of a blacked-out suburban at 12:05 p.m., nearly two hours before her 2 p.m. deadline. Lifetime production cameras captured the last glimpse of Miller as she headed in. Although federal prisons don’t allow cameras inside, cameras followed Miller as far as possible when she checked in. The 50-year-old reality star recently filmed a special with a news journalist for Lifetime regarding her sentencing, and the footage shot on Wednesday will air during the special. Miller was found guilty of bankruptcy fraud in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in May. In addition to serving time the judge ordered Miller to pay a $40,000 fine and serve two years probation after her time behind bars. While on probation, she will need to live in a place “approved by the probation officer.”
WOODY HARRELSON just did a big interview with “The Hollywood Reporter”, and he opened up about the time in 2002, when his wife Laura found out he had a drunken FOURSOME with three chicks he met at a bar in London. They weren’t married at the time, but they’d been together since 1990 . . . after he’d hired her as his assistant in 1987. He says three women at a bar asked if he wanted to take a, quote, “walk on the wild side,” and they went back to his place. It turned out one of them worked for a tabloid. Then they published a story about it, and he figured his relationship was toast. But Laura’s reaction when she found out made him realize how incredibly COMPASSIONATE she is. Her first instinct was to feel SORRY for him, because his private life was being blasted all over the news. He says she WASN’T fine with it. She was really upset, and he had to do a lot of groveling. But she eventually forgave him for it, and they’re still together. They got married in 2008 and have three kids.
TOM HANKS has starred in over 50 movies, plus he’s written and directed two movies, done some TV shows, and produced numerous projects over the years. It has sometimes felt like Tom is EVERYWHERE . . . but it could’ve been even crazier, because there are at least 16 OTHER movies that he ALMOST starred in.
1. “Get Crazy”, 1983. Even early in his career, Hanks was in demand. Director Allan Arkush wanted him, but the studio insisted on Daniel Stern.
2. “Police Academy”, 1984. Hanks was on the initial ‘wish-list’ for Mahoney . . . along with Michael Keaton and Judge Reinhold. But the part went to THE GUTE, Steve Guttenberg.
3. “When Harry Met Sally”, 1989. Director Rob Reiner wanted Hanks to star . . . and he also talked to Albert Brooks,Richard Dreyfuss, and Michael Keaton. But Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan clicked right off the bat, so that was that.
4. “Super Mario Bros.”, 1993. Hanks was hired to play Mario, but he was later dumped for Bob Hoskins, who was cheaper. This was around the time Tom was winning Oscars for “Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump”, so he dodged a bullet.
5. “Groundhog Day”, 1993. Director Harold Ramis wanted Hanks to play Phil Connors, but they eventually went with Bill Murray. Tom later joked that it was the right call, because he always “plays nice,” and Bill is “such a miserable S.O.B.”
6. “The Shawshank Redemption”, 1994. Tim Robbins only got the role after Hanks, Kevin Costner, and Tom Cruise all passed on it.
7. “When a Man Loves a Woman”, 1994. Hanks was attached, but re-writes delayed the movie, and his schedule got too busy. So, Andy Garcia took over.
8. “Speed”, 1994. This movie was another hard sell. The studio wanted Tom Hanks or Tom Cruise first. When they passed, they went after Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson. And when they passed, they settled on Keanu Reeves.
9. “Nixon”, 1995. Oliver Stone had heard that Hanks was supposed to play Richard Nixon in a previous project that never got off the ground, so he talked to him about his movie. Tom turned him down, so he went with Anthony Hopkins.
10. “Jerry Maguire”, 1996. Cameron Crowe wrote the movie with Hanks in mind, but he was too busy directing “That Thing You Do!”. The role went to Tom Cruise, and it was probably better off for it.
11. “Star Trek: First Contact”, 1996. “That Thing You Do!” also prevented Hanks from doing this movie, even though he’s a HUGE “Star Trek” fan. In fact, just before this opportunity, he expressed regret that he didn’t have time to do a “Star Trek: Next Generation” episode or a “Star Trek” movie.
12. “Primary Colors”, 1998. The movie is based on a book about Bill Clinton’s first successful presidential campaign, and Hanks agreed to star in it. But he got too busy again, and had to drop out. John Travolta took it.
13. “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion”, 2001. Woody Allen has said that both Tom Hanks and Jack Nicholson turned down the lead . . . possibly because they weren’t offered enough money.
14. “Kinsey”, 2004. Hanks reportedly “flirted” with the lead role, before it went to Liam Neeson.
15. “Shopgirl”, 2005. Steve Martin wanted Hanks to star in it . . . but he was too busy, so Steve took the role himself.
16. “Dino”, a movie about Dean Martin that was never made. Director Martin Scorsese wanted Tom to play Dean, and he hoped to make it after “Gangs of New York”, but for whatever reason it never got off the ground.
Biggest Loser resident doctor, Dr Robert Huizenga has revealed the reality show has been canceled because of those claims he gave contestants illegal diet pills. NBC is yet to announce the decision – but there are court documents in which the doctor claims the show will not be returning and blames former contestant Joelle Gwynn. The doctor sued Gwynn and the New York Post over an article that was published last year which claimed he gave participants Ephedra extract pills and Adderall. Gwynn told the paper she felt ‘jittery and hyper’ after taking the drugs. The doctor filed a lawsuit accusing the story of being ‘fabricated, fictitious and outright libelous’. Gwynn fired back reaffirming her statements and demanded his libel suit be tossed and he pay her attorney fees. Now the doctor is demanding her motion be tossed, alleging her comments cost him his job on the show and other projects.
Season Seven of “Game of Thrones” premieres on Sunday. We heard back in May that HBO was planning up to FOUR different spinoffs. But now it looks like that may NOT happen, and it’s probably a good thing. HBO’s president of programming says they don’t want to “overexploit” the world George R.R. Martin created . . . like ABC did with “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”. That isn’t as random as it sounds. The same exec was with Touchstone back when they produced “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” for ABC. And it was a hit until they started DRIVING IT INTO THE GROUND with four shows a week. Instead, they have four prequels in development so they can see how they pan out, and pick the best one. Or if they ALL suck, they could scrap the whole thing. Also, there’s no chance any of the spinoffs would premiere until well after the show ends. And by the way, the eighth and final season WILL air on HBO. Apparently, there were rumors it might be released as a movie, but that’s not happening.
The gang from “Jersey Shore” is getting back together on TV, but no more of the shenanigans that made us love/hate them. Production sources tell us … a cable network will showcase the current versions of Snooki,JWoww, Pauly D, The Situation and company for a TV special on the impact of the reality show on their lives, and where they are now.We’re told the reunion is not a full series pickup — either a one-time special or just a couple episodes — and will have a documentary feel. It will be the first of several, reuniting casts from various popular shows that aired back in the day.
Director Quentin Tarantino is putting together a movie on the Manson Family Murders. He is writing the script and will also direct. Tarantino is talking with A-list actors, including Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence for major roles. Margot Robbie has also reportedly been tapped, and will play the lead of Sharon Tate. Shooting will likely begin in 2018. The story will center on Sharon Tate the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski, who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969.
A New York auction house called ‘Gotta Have Rock and Roll’ is placing a CD up for bids later this month, and it supposedly contains a full, finished album of unreleased MICHAEL JACKSON songs. It looks like a blank, Sony CD-R . . . but it has the word “Bible” written in blue sharpie, and it features 12 mastered tracks, all with completed vocals. Different versions of three of the tracks . . . “Monster”, “Breaking News”, and “Keep Your Head Up” . . . appeared on”Michael”, the first album that was put out after his death. But the other nine tracks have never been released. The CD was in the possession of an anonymous person who’s described as a, quote, “personal friend and personal assistant to Michael, whose family was very close to Michael for many years.” The starting bid on the unreleased album is $50,000. There is a catch, though . . . the winning bidder will NOT have the rights to the music, so they won’t be able to distribute it in any way.
A year ago, I would have said this was a joke. But now, who knows. KID ROCK posted a photo on Twitter yesterday of a campaign yard sign that says, ‘Kid Rock for U.S. SENATE.’ And this might be REAL, people. He’s talked about it before. And back in February, his name supposedly got tossed around at a Republican Party convention in his home state of Michigan. Along with the photo, he wrote, “I have a ton of emails and texts asking if this website is real.” Then he linked to the site KidRockForSenate.com, and said, “The answer is an absolute YES.” The website looks like it could be legit, but so far there’s just some merchandise you can buy . . . a ‘Kid Rock for U.S. Senate’ shirt, hat, yard sign, and bumper sticker. And that matters, because once he makes at least $5,000 off that stuff, he technically has 15 days to register his campaign with the Federal Election Commission. According to the “Washington Post”, he hasn’t done that yet. If he is on the ballot next year, he’d be running against Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow. Her response to the news was, quote, “I concede he is better at playing the guitar. And I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is fighting for Michigan.”
But this could just be an elaborate promotion for an upcoming album, which may be patriotically themed. Right now, his political merch site is being hosted by Warner Bros. Music, so that’s a bit of a tip-off that this may all be music-related.
LANA WOOD is best known for playing the ‘Bond Girl’ Plenty O’Toole in “Diamonds Are Forever” opposite Sean Connery. But earlier this year, there were reports that family medical bills had made her HOMELESS. Fortunately, someone started a GoFundMe campaign on her behalf, and it raised over $36,000, which helped get her back on her feet. She says, quote, “If I wasn’t able to touch [that money], I wouldn’t have electricity, water, or a roof over my head.” That said, it still isn’t easy. She has health issues, and she’s living with her daughter, who’s been battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma. But at least they have a place to stay now. Lana is the younger sister of the late Natalie Wood, and she’s 71 now.
KATHY BATES is done pretending. Pretending that she has BREASTS. Back in 2012, Kathy lost her lovely lady lumps to cancer, and for a while, she wore fake ones. But she figures that unless she needs boobs for a role, why bother? Quote, “I’ve joined the ranks of women who are going flat, as they say. I don’t have breasts, so why do I have to pretend like I do “That stuff isn’t important. I’m just grateful to have been born at a time when the research made it possible for me to survive. I feel so incredibly lucky to be alive.”
For some reason, CORINNE OLYMPIOS is willing to return to “Bachelor in Paradise” . . . but she won’t actually be back this season. She’s just returning for the ‘reunion show.’
