California Shaming
OK, clearly I disagree with Carrie Prejean’s views on same-sex marriage. But honestly, that’s not why Donald Trump should have kicked her rhinestone tits to the curb. She should have lost her crown because she violated her contracts. And she lied. Repeatedly. As a Christian. Which also makes her a hypocrite. She also took naughty pics, then tried to pretend they didn’t count because she was underage. Doesn’t that make it WORSE? Would Jesus have let Mary Magdalene pose nudie? Oh, right. She was a whore. So maybe Prejean really is just following in her footsteps… But yay, Shanna Moakler, who resigned in disgust over Trump’s weakness.

But Who Will Play Thing?
I don’t mind the recycling of ideas as many do. As long as something is well done, I’m all for it. So the casting of Tony winners Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth as Gomez and Morticia in a new musical based on the New Yorker cartoons and the ’60s TV series The Addams Family seems as inspired as casting Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston in the films. I wonder if they audience will snap their fingers along with the theme song.

Anecdotes from Alaska
Sarah Palin is set to write her memoirs for HarperCollins. Does she honestly think her disciples can read? She’d better include a lotta pictures.…

Baby Brood
Fresh off creating controversy at the White House, The New Adventures of Old Christine’s Wanda Sykes and her wife, Alex, welcomed twins -- Lucas Claude and Olivia Lou -- on April 27. Here’s hoping they’ll grow up in a world (and a state) where they can marry whomever they like.
