A little update on Josh Duggar who was arrested for child porn on his computer an other devices. Josh is getting released from jail, but he’s not going home. The judge agrees Josh is not a flight risk, but says Duggar will not be sent to his residence. He was turned over to third-party and will be fashioned with a GPS ankle monitor. He can’t have any contact with minors or possess any internet devices, but he can visit with his own minor children as long as their mother is there. Apparently friends and family told law enforcement he’s dealing with a porn addiction … according to the feds, who claim his computer was chock full of disturbing images. He appeared over Zoom for a court hearing yesterday and an agent from the Dept. of Homeland Security said Josh’s computer had more than 200 images involving naked minors and child sex abuse material. The agent said some of the children were as young as 5. However, Josh’s defense asked the agent if there’s evidence Duggar had looked at the alleged images, and the agent said he hadn’t “directly” seen Josh checking out child porn. During the hearing, graphic details of the alleged child porn were also revealed, with a special agent saying one series of videos was “in the top five of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine.” Agents also explained how Duggar allegedly used a Linux partition to get around “Covenant Eyes,” the computer program that was supposed to alert Anna if Josh accessed porn
Ashley Morgan Smithline, one of the fifteen women who have accused Marilyn Manson of abuse has detailed her experience in a new interview with People. Smithline said after meeting Manson in 2010, he offered her a film role. The two eventually started a relationship, with Smithline revealing she was attracted to Manson’s intelligence. Smithline said Manson’s abuse began after she moved into his apartment to work on his film. Her claims against the shock-rocker include rape while telling her “You can’t rape someone you love”, and breaking her nose in another rape incident. The model also accused Manson of trapping her more than 100 times in a glass box in his bedroom he called “the bad girls’ room”. She also alleged Manson cut and whipped her repeatedly. In one incident, Smithline said Manson drank her blood after cutting her stomach and forced her to drink it, too, in a “blood pact.” Manson also allegedly told her to find Nazi memorabilia while traveling for modeling gigs, despite knowing she was of Jewish descent. Manson’s lawyers responded to Smithline’s interview, writing “There are so many falsehoods within her claims that we wouldn’t know where to begin. This relationship, to the limited extent it was a relationship, didn’t last one week.”
38 year old comedian John Mulaney (link) seems to be better off after a stint in rehab. He had talked in his stand up about being a heavy drinker in the past. He has been interviewed about quitting coke and booze at like age 23. Well he is getting back to work with his first live shows of 2021, as he has quietly booked and sold out four dates at City Winery in New York City from May 10 to May 14. Proof of a covid vaccine or recent negative test is required to get in. BTW, MARIAH CAREY is so serious about getting her COVID shot that she’s willing to let us see her sitting under crappy fluorescent lighting (link).
TV One has a special episode of “Uncensored” coming up, which features the FINAL interview DMX gave before he passed away last month. They say he sat down with them just three weeks before he died. The episode will premiere on Sunday, May 16th, but they released a 30-second preview, where DMX reflects on his career.
Late July or early August. That’s when season 38 begins filming on Jeopardy. The only clue so far is ex producer Mike Richards, himself a fill in, said he’d be surprised if Jeopardy bosses chose someone who hasn’t guest-hosted. Richards believes that fans hyping their favorite temporary host online will “definitely play” into their decision. But decision-makers will focus on the online responses that “carries the spirit” of Jeopardy fans over the loudest responses.
JESSICA ALBA’s Honest Company went public yesterday . . . earning her NINE FIGURES in the process. The IPO (initial public offering?) raised $413 million . . . and Jessica owns more than 5.6 million shares. Their stock was valued at $23 per share as of closing yesterday, so her shares are worth $130 MILLION. Jessica is the founder and chief creative officer of The Honest Company, which makes bath, body, baby, and cleaning products . . . supposedly without all the chemical garbage that other companies jam into theirs.
GEORGE CLOONEY is doing one of those Omaze (link) fundraisers, where you can donate to his charity for a chance to win a trip to Lake Como, Italy to hang out with him and his wife AMAL. He dropped the details in a video where he pretends that he got stuck at some regular guy’s house when stay-at-home orders hit last year. George thinks they hit it off great, but the other guy is basically in HELL. He’s especially annoyed by George’s constant fangirling over BRAD PITT.
The new zombie action flick “Army of the Dead” almost had some legit full-frontal male undead nudity. The movie is about a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, and a gang of mercenaries who go in and try to pull off a massive heist. And they shot a nude scene featuring a male stripper zombie with, quote, “a huge penis with a bite taken out of it.” But director ZACK SNYDER says, quote, “We thought that was too much.”
JOHN MAYER wrote a song for a fan to apologize for his behavior 16 years ago. A guy named Brian Burns had tweeted (link) a photo of his mom from 2005 being turned away from a photo op with John by his manager. John saw the tweet and felt bad about it, so he went on TikTok (link) to do a special birthday song and apologize for the snub.
For an upcoming movie called “Stu”, MARK WAHLBERG has gained 20 pounds (link) in three weeks, and he’s trying to pack on another 10. How’s he doing it? He enlisted the help of a personal chef named Lawrence Duran, who’s feeding him 7,000 calories a day. That’s three times more than the average American eats. But Lawrence would like you to know that he’s not stuffing Mark’s face with junk. They’ve enlisted doctors and nutritionists to make sure Mark’s not killing himself. And they’ve broken up those calories into EIGHT meals per day, which means he eats about every three hours.
His day starts at around 3:00 A.M., and here’s how his meals break down:
- Four eggs, followed by a workout.
- Eight eggs, six strips of bacon, a cup of rice, two tablespoons of olive oil, and a protein shake.
- Some kind of ground beef or ground turkey, either in a burger patty or a meatloaf, plus another cup of rice.
- Half a roasted chicken, another cup of rice, a cup of cooked spinach and a cup of cooked beets.
- An eight-ounce veal chop or pork chop.
- A four-ounce piece of salmon, a cup of rice, olive oil, and beets.
- Eight ounces of some kind of steak, eight ounces of some kind of white fish, and tons of vegetables.
- The Nightcap: A mash consisting of one cup of cooked steel-cut oatmeal, two tablespoons of applesauce, two tablespoons of jelly or jam, two tablespoons of almond butter, and a tablespoon of molasses. This one’s a “mass gainer” so he puts on weight in his sleep.
He also has a cheat day over the weekend where he’ll hit up his favorite restaurant and have, quote, “pastas or pizzas or cookies.”

So for the Blues to clinch a playoff spot last night, two things needed to happen. #1 – the Blues needed to beat the Ducks. #2 – the Coyotes needed to beat the Kings in regulation. Well. 0-2. The Blues lost to the Ducks in a shootout and the Kings beat the Coyotes. The Blues did have a pretty awesome tribute to former captain David Backes at the beginning of the game and at the end of the game the entire team lined up to wish him well. It was a really cool moment. Up next for the Blues – a game against the Knights in Vegas on Friday.

Yesterday it was a true doubleheader between the Cards and the Mets after a rainout on Tuesday. In Game #1 – homers from Paul Goldschmidt and Paul DeJong gave the Cards a 4-1 win against the Mets. In Game #2 – the Mets came back and beat the Cards 7-2. The series finale between the two teams is today at Busch. First pitch is scheduled for 12:15PM
John Means was almost perfect for the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday, but he will happily settle for a no-hitter and one of the greatest pitching performances in team history. Means retired all 27 batters he faced in a 6-0 victory over the Mariners, but he did allow a baserunner when Sam Haggerty reached on a third-strike wild pitch in the third inning. Means is believed to be the first pitcher in major league history to lose a perfect game on a third-strike wild pitch. However – he is the first person to pitch an individual no-hitter for the Orioles since Jim Palmer in 1969.
The Rangers and Capitals combined for 72 penalty minutes in the first 4 minutes, 14 seconds of their game Wednesday night, their first meeting since Washington forward Tom Wilson injured New York star Artemi Panarin earlier this week in the same building. There were six separate fights to start the game at Madison Square Garden, including a line brawl one second after the opening faceoff. The Capitals defeated the Rangers 4-2 in a game that ended up with 141 penalty minutes. All of this happened in the aftermath of Wilson’s antics Monday. The controversial winger, who has been suspended five times by the NHL, was fined $5,000 by the league for punching Rangers forward Pavel Buchnevich (link) in the back of the head while he was face down on the ice. In the second period Wednesday, Buchnevich was given a game misconduct for a cross-check.
Things keep getting weirder in New York…The Rangers have fired general manager Jeff Gorton and president John Davidson, and have promoted Chris Drury to president and GM effective immediately. The team put out a statement that said: “We want to thank JD and Jeff for their contributions to the organization. They are both great hockey professionals who worked hard for the Rangers, however, in order for the team to succeed in the manner our fans deserve, there needs to be a change in leadership.” Drury, 44, a former Rangers player, had received interest from other teams for their general manager positions over the past two years but had turned them down to remain New York’s associate GM under Davidson and Gorton.
Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa is under the microscope again. La Russa said he didn’t fully know the extra-inning rule that would have allowed him to avoid using closer Liam Hendriks as a baserunner in a 0-0 game against the Reds on Wednesday in Cincinnati. Hendriks had double-switched into the game in the bottom of the ninth inning, taking the No. 5 spot in the batting order, which made the last out in the top of the frame. Per MLB rules, as extra innings begin, the spot in the order to make the last out in the previous inning becomes the baserunner at second base. However, if that spot is occupied by a pitcher, the team has the option to use the preceding player in the batting order as the runner. In this case, it would have been Jose Abreu. “I didn’t know that,” La Russa said after the 1-0 loss. “We all thought Liam was going to be the runner. I wasn’t aware Abreu could have run. I thought it was the guy that made the last out or the spot in that order.”
New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard will reportedly become the first transgender Olympian after qualifying for this summer’s Tokyo Games. Hubbard, 43, has been virtually guaranteed a spot in the women’s super heavyweight category after the IOC amended qualifying rules due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She has not yet been officially named to the team. Hubbard had been competing in men’s weightlifting until she transitioned in 2012. She became eligible to compete in the Olympics since 2015, when the IOC allowed transgender women to be eligible in women’s divisions as long as their testosterone levels were at a certain level.
Teen soccer star Olivia Moultrie has filed a lawsuit against the National Women’s Soccer League. Moultrie, 15, claims the NWSL’s requirement that all players must be at least 18 violates the Sherman Antitrust Act. She hopes to join the NWSL when the league’s regular season begins on May 15. Her lawyer says: “Ms. Moultrie does not seek an order from this Court awarding her a contract or a roster slot. Rather, she seeks removal of an unlawful barrier to her participation.” Moultrie is one of the youngest soccer phenoms in recent memory. She accepted a scholarship to North Carolina when she was 11 and turned pro two years later with a nine-year, six-figure endorsement contract with Nike. The NWSL argues its current age restriction does not violate the Sherman Act as it acts as a “single entity.” Moultrie’s lawyers have challenged that and argue that an age limit can only be in place for a league with a collective bargaining agreement. No such agreement is currently in place in the NWSL.
