Kathleen Turner Wants to Know Why Men Don't Ask Her Out 

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  KATHLEEN TURNER has been single since getting divorced in 2007, though not by choice.  She says, quote, "[Men] don't dare ask me to date them.  I'm not invited to date very often at all.  Maybe men just don't consider I'm available or something.  Or don't think of me as possible dating material."

 

 

FULL STORY:  KATHLEEN TURNER has been single since getting divorced in 2007, though not by choice.  She's 60 years old, and anxious to date.  But for some reason, men have NOT been hitting her up.

 

 

She tells Britain's "Daily Mail", quote, "They don't dare ask me to date them.  I'm not invited to date very often at all.  Maybe men just don't consider I'm available or something.  Or don't think of me as possible dating material."

 

 

Kathleen doesn't look like she did in the 1980s . . . not at all.  And she gets it.  In fact, she chose to age naturally, rather than have cosmetic surgery or Botox, which she considers, quote, "destructive."

 

 

She explains, quote, "No one is sexy if they don't look like themselves.  You see a perfectly good actor who suddenly can't move their forehead or their eyebrows.

 

 

"I can say, 'Do you know what?  I don't look like I did 30 years ago.  Get over it.'"  Maybe this explains why Kathleen was cool with playing a not-so-sexy seductress in "Dumb and Dumber To".

 

 

(Here are some recent photos of Kathleen, along with some from 30 years ago.  Can we help her out?  Is anyone out there interested?)

Shia LaBeouf Claims He Was "Raped" During His Strange Performance Art Project Earlier This Year 

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  A while back, SHIA LABEOUF did an "art" project, where he sat silently in a room . . . while people came in, and did or said whatever they wanted to him.  Now, Shia reveals that one woman took off his clothes and RAPED him.  He says it was "painful" because HIS girlfriend was outside, and she heard about what happened.  On the other hand, though, he could have stopped it, and didn't.

 

 

FULL STORY:  Earlier this year, SHIA LABEOUF did a strange performance art project called "#IAmSorry," where he sat silently in a room with a paper bag over his head, while visitors came in one-by-one.

 

 

The observers were told they could do or say whatever they wanted . . . there were even props for them to use, including a whip.  And apparently, one woman took that as a license to HAVE SEX with him.  But Shia is calling it a RAPE.

 

 

In an interview with DazedDigital.com, Shia reveals, quote, "[She] came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to RAPE me.

 

 

"There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick.  It was no good, not just for me but her man as well."

 

 

He adds that HIS girlfriend was also in line at the time, because it was Valentine's Day, and she'd come to see him.  And she knew what had happened, because word of what the woman did had spread through the line.

Shia LaBeouf Claims He Was "Raped" During His Strange Performance Art Project Earlier This Year  (continued) 

 

 

He says, quote, "When she came in she asked for an explanation, and I couldn't speak, so we both sat with this unexplained trauma silently.  It was painful."

 

 

He didn't say anything about reporting the incident or pressing charges against the woman.  But how could he, when he clearly could have STOPPED her from doing whatever she was doing, but DIDN'T?

 

 

For what it's worth, his "creative collaborators" say it wasn't immediately "clear" what was happening, but once they realized what the woman was doing, they put a stop to it, and "ensured that she left."

 

 

(Careful)  (Two things:  First, Shia doesn't say how he was "raped."  He was supposed to be still, so we're assuming she sat on his lap, but we don't actually know what sexual act allegedly took place.)

 

 

(Also, he should NOT be calling this rape.  It's demeaning to ACTUAL rape victims.  Technically, he doesn't refer to himself as a victim, and that's good, because he DID have all the power to stop it.  And for what it's worth, PIERS MORGAN agrees.)

 

 

(Phone Starter:  Can Shia use his dedication to his "art" as an excuse to call this a sexual assault, or is that total B.S.?  Think about it . . . Would he have allowed a MAN to have sex him?  Would he have let someone seriously injure him?)

 

 

 (Clearly there would be a line . . . and it's on Shia that this didn't cross it for him.  You can read the whole interview, here.)

Watch Mickey Rourke "Win" a Fake-Looking Boxing Match 

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  62-year-old MICKEY ROURKE won an exhibition boxing match in Russia Friday, against a 29-year-old opponent.  Neither guy seemed to be fighting too hard, and a lot of people think it was fixed . . . because Mickey knocked the guy down in the second round with a glancing body blow, then finished him off with more lame body shots.

 

 

FULL STORY:  62-year-old MICKEY ROURKE stepped into the boxing ring for the first time in 20 years this past Friday, defeating 29-year-old Elliot Seymour fromPasadena.

 

 

Even though he's a former Golden Gloves champ,Seymourcame into the fight with a 1 and 9 professional record.  It was billed as an "exhibition" match, and Mickey and his opponent weren't exactly going all Rocky and Apollo on each other.

 

 

Mickey won by "knockout" in the second round, but it looks likeSeymourtook a DIVE.  Because Mickey put him on the canvas with a GLANCING BODY BLOW. Seymourgot up, but Mickey put him down for good with more body shots.

 

 

The fight took place inMoscow, and Mickey says he has four more fights coming up there.  Mickey took a break from acting to do some boxing in the '90s . . . and he claims that's why he "needed" all the plastic surgery he's had.

 

 

(Check out the end of the fight here.  Whatever else you want to say about the guy, he looks damn good for 62.)

Freddie Prinze Jr. Is Recovering From Neck Surgery 

 

 

FREDDIE PRINZE JR. had neck surgery on November 20th, and he's been all over social media posting pictures and updates.  He initially said he had to basically re-learn how to walk.  But in a recent update, he said he's walking fine now.

 

 

In one Tweet, he said he had "Cena surgery".  That's a reference to WWE wrestler JOHN CENA, who had an operation in 2008 where doctors went in through the front of his neck to remove a large disk fragment compression on his spinal cord.

The New "Star Wars" Trailer is Here 

 

 

The first trailer for "Star Wars:  Episode 7 - The Force Awakens" has arrived.  We don't get to see any classic characters, unless you count the Millennium Falcon as a character.

The trailer has already inspired some new fan versions.  One guy re-did the whole thing with Legos . . . and somebody else did a "George Lucas Special Edition", meaning they added a bunch of crap with CGI.

It's Official:  Daryl from "The Walking Dead" is Not Gay 

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  The "Walking Dead" Facebook page angered a lot of fans by revealing a spoiler about last night's show right after it aired.  In related news, "Walking Dead" creator ROBERT KIRKMAN has cleared up some confusion regarding the Daryl Dixon character:  He is NOT GAY.  But he added that a prominent gay character from the comics will be introduced soon.

 

 

FULL STORY:  The "Walking Dead" Facebook page pissed off a lot of fans by dropping a MAJOR SPOILER about a main character's death right after last night's mid-season finale aired.

 

 

(If you haven't seen it yet, we won't ruin it for you . . . but you can read more about that here.  And I guess it goes without saying that you will see a SPOILER from last night's show.)

 

 

In related news, we don't have to wonder anymore if Daryl Dixon from "The Walking Dead" is gay.  He's NOT.  On last night's episode of the "Walking Dead" post-show "The Talking Dead", creator ROBERT KIRKMAN laid it out.

 

 

He said, quote, "There was a possibility early on about making Daryl Dixon's character gay and it caused quite a hubbub online.  I just wanted to make it clear that I was saying the possibility is there.

 

 

"I would've been fine with it, the network would've been fine with it.  But we ultimately didn't do that.  I can make it official, Daryl Dixon is actually straight."

 

 

But Kirkman added that in the second half of this season, which kicks off in February, they'll introduce a very prominent gay character from the comics.

FULL STORY:  It sounds like former CREED singer SCOTT STAPP is going insane.  Literally.  Because he spent most of the Thanksgiving weekend acting like AMANDA BYNES.

 

 

A few days ago, Scott posted a 15-minute video on Facebook . . . where he ranted about how he was "penniless" and living at a Holiday Inn.

 

 

He said, quote, "About eight weeks ago, I began an audit of not only my record company but my personal finances . . . a lot money was stolen from me, or royalties not paid, and that's when all hell began to break loose."

 

 

Earlier in the week, Scott's wife filed for divorce, and asked for full custody of the children.  In her filing, she released text messages she said she got from Scott . . . where he says crazy stuff like, quote, "Florida is not safe.  Biological weapons on the way.  You have to leave with kids and meet me inAtlanta."

 

 

And, quote, "I'm coming to get you Satan and children.  No mercy.  You know how this ends.  God created you and now God is ending you."

Former Creed Singer Scott Stapp May Have Gone Insane  (continued) 

 

 

Scott had been placed on a 72-hour involuntary psych hold earlier this month . . . after being found on the side of the road, rambling about how someone was trying to poison him.

 

 

His wife is trying to get him back in the hospital.  She says he's been blowing his money on drugs . . . that he hears voices . . . and recently left a message with the dean of his kid's school, warning that the place was the target of an ISIS attack.

 

 

Then, Scott posted a couple more videos from outside a police building inFlorida.  He was there trying to file a report against his bank.  The general theme of both videos was that he was wronged by his management and two separate banks over the years, resulting in a loss of millions.

 

 

All the videos have since been deleted from his Facebook page, and replaced by this message:  Quote, "I'm going to step back and let God control everything from here on."  (You can read the whole thing, here.)

 

 

(Here's the first video, the second video, and the third.)

 

 

Also, Scott has launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise $480,000 for a new solo album and his, quote, "first book in the fiction category."  (???)

 

 

And in a radio interview last week, Scott said he believes PRESIDENT OBAMA sicced the IRS on him, because he spoke out about him in an interview with Fox News two years ago.  (You can find the audio, here.)

A Woman Is Kicked Off a Plane Because of Her Emotional Support Pig

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  A woman was flying out ofConnecticut on U.S. Airways on Wednesday, and had her 70-pound "emotional support" PIG with her.  Unfortunately, the pig wouldn't calm down . . . POOPED . . . and the woman and her pig were kicked off the flight before takeoff.

 

 

FULL STORY:  Of all the reasons flights got delayed over Thanksgiving, this HAS to be the strangest.

 

 

A U.S. Airways flight out ofBradleyInternationalAirportin Windsor Locks,Connecticutran into some trouble before takeoff on Wednesday morning . . . because of a woman's "emotional support" PIG.

 

 

It was a pot-bellied pig somewhere between 50 and 80 pounds, and she brought it through security and onto the flight with her.  Then she tied its leash to her armrest.

 

 

But the pig seemed less focused on providing her emotional support, and more focused on DEFECATING.  It was squealing, wouldn't calm down, and was moving around in the aisle.  The woman even called it a "jerk."  Then it POOPED.

 

 

The flight attendants told her to clean up the mess, but she kept having problems, so they ended up kicking her and the pig off the flight.  There's no word where the flight was heading, or how badly it was delayed.  Supposedly the woman didn't put up a fight.

 

 

The Department of Transportation DOES let people bring "emotional support" animals on flights . . . including pigs, monkeys, cats, and even MINIATURE HORSES . . . but airlines are allowed to kick them off if they're disruptive.  (ABC News / The Telegraph)

BIRTHDAYS - 3 of 3

 

 

Lee "CHUPA" Trevino is 75.  Peen-chee Mexican golfer who wouldn't sign a 10-year-old half-Mexican boy's autograph book of his golf heroes!  (He also played himself in "Happy Gilmore".  He was the guy who would pop up occasionally and shake his head disapprovingly at Adam Sandler.  He was AMAZING.)

 

 

Woody Allen is 79.  Powerless over the young and tender Asiatic poon.

 

 

(And because of that, we sometimes forget that Woody is . . . or at least he WAS . . . an incredibly smart and funny man, who gifted us with such wisdom as . . .

 

 

("You can live to be 100 if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be 100."  And . . . "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work;  I want to achieve immortality through not dying.")

 

 

Related Comedy:  (CAREFUL) . . . Woody Allen is 79 today.  I asked him where he wanted to go for his birthday dinner, and he said he's in the mood for a little Asian.

 

 

Richard Pryor  (1940 - 2005)  Genius . . . and former free-baser.  Screw HIM.

 

 

LOU RAWLS!  (1933 - 2006)  Biggest hit: "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine"!  AND, he played the fabulous Lou Raymond on "Baywatch Nights"!  Lou Rawls is MY IDOL . . . right up there with the late NIPSEY RUSSELL!

 

 

David Doyle  (1929 - 1997)  Bosley on the original "Charlie's Angels" TV series!
