Mark Cherry has new plans for Desperate Housewives
Openly gay Mark Cherry, creator and producer of the wildly popular television show “Desperate Housewives” has a revolutionary new idea for his show: Add a desperate gay househusband!
Marc Cherry, (right with Teri Hatcher), creator of Desperate Housewives revealed during the ABC Press Tour that Wisteria Lane will become home to its first gay couple in season 4. “We’re going to have the first male desperate housewives,” said Cherry. “They will move into the old Applewhite house and one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher. We just started writing the episodes so I probably won’t start casting for another few weeks.”
Will the lucky gay couple have their Massachusetts wedding license framed on the wall as the practice of most legally wed Gay/Lez couples?
Will all of the heterosexual couples’ marriage fall apart as guaranteed by the religiously insane? Oh wait…that’s already happened in seasons 1, 2 and 3, long before the Queers showed up!
It should be a blast to see. I can only hope the gay couple will be protrayed as professional gay people. Because if one of them is a “female impersonator” so some dumb crap like that, I ain’t watching it.
Fred (Fredrick of Hollywood) Thompson’s numbers are extremely low
The Republican Party, extremely disappointed with their current gaggle of Presidential hopeful contenders, have secretly habored a personal hope in Fred Thompson. Thompson however, continues to ride the fence on whether he really wants to run for the Presidency or not. And he seems to have taken a beating with his money
The amount Thompson raised for his committee to “test the waters” of a presidential bid lags the original $5 million goal backers set for June, the first month in which he set out to raise money.
Thompson did, however, collect more than several other Republicans did in their initial fundraising months as prospective candidates. Still, Thompson’s take doesn’t even compare to the stunning $6.5 million haul that Mitt Romney collected on a single day in January as he was exploring a bid.
Let’s recall that Mitt Romney, the GOP’s Golden Boy, has funding problems of his own and has been keeping his campaign floating with his own money.
Thompson apparently doesn’t seem to have enough of his own cash to chip into his campaign otherwise none of us would be seeing these kinds of headlines. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that he wasn’t paid that much when he served as a lobbyist for an abortion rights group. Thompson’s candidacy presents other problems as well: When he announces, all of the Law and Order episodes will have to be pulled off the air, including all of those that are currently in syndication. This move also has an effect on all of those fellow cast members including camera crews, make-up artists, casting directors and walk-on actors who will loose royalties for the more recent episodes.
Minnesota GOP Fund Raising Woes
…And while we’re talking about the financial woes of the GOP, it seems local statewide GOP teams have their own financial problems.
On another note, [ed.] said he got a call from GOP fundraisers for the special election and he refused to give any money because he did not trust the financial stewardship of the state party. And also because the caller was an asshole, he said.
Minnesota’s GOP has problems internally anyway. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (a.k.a. Bagdad Bachmann) has turned out to be even more bat-shit insane than the voters of MN Cong Dist 6 originally realized. Think Progress has a great piece on Congreswoman Bachman’s comparison to visiting Bagdad, Iraq to a trip to Mall of America in Minneapolis.
Eight-term Representative Mark Olson from Big Lake, MN has been dumped by the GOP Caucus after a jury cleared him of battery, but guilty for terrorizing his wife. While the trial was going on, it was revealed that this “GOP American Family Values” man would beat the shit out of his wife with a Holy Bible. In turn, she would defend herself by using her own Holy Bible and beat him with it. Don’t believe me? Check out the audio of his confession…
The best part of this story is that Representative Mark Olson is extremely anti-gay marriage. You can check out a YouTube of him bitching in the Minnesota House yelling about his religious views about gays getting married.
Are you still interested in giving your money to these Minnesota GOP political-hacks?!?
US Senator Ted Stevens’ home raided: Underwear, lubes and Internets discovered
This needs no introduction because the story speaks for itself…
The longest-serving Republican in U.S Senate history, who is known for delivering billions of federal dollars to his home state, Stevens in a statement said: “My attorneys were advised this morning that federal agents wished to search my home in Girdwood in connection with an ongoing investigation.
“I continue to believe this investigation should proceed to its conclusion without any appearance that I have attempted to influence the outcome,” it said.
Has anybody set up a webpage that keeps count of all of these GOP Senators and Congressman who’s lives are being invaded by FBI agents? Oh well – who cares about this one. Let him rot with the salmon spawn up river.
Have you heard about his son Ben Stevens? He’s an Alaskan state senator and he’s also under investigation for all kinds of mischief. It’s all of that “family values” that gets me warm and fuzzy on the inside, you know?!
Scary Mary (Poppins) re-cut trailer
Andrew Sullivan found the most horrifying film on the YouTube to date. It’s a remake of Mary Poppins, only four times the scare. I was so terrified, I was peeing in my trash lid full of rotten fruit and I screamed so hard, I scared the neighboring maggots back to pupa-stage.
