    Actor Michael McKean was hospitalized after being hit by a car in Manhattan last night. He's is currently starring in "The Best Man" on Broadway. Fortunately, the worst injury he suffered seems to be a broken leg. That accident happened just one block from where I grew up. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

    People's sexual orientation is something I don't pay much attention to, even when they are proclaiming it - or reversing themselves on it publicly. It's uninteresting to me.

    John Travolta is of a different generation than young gay stars today, and belongs to a faith that considers homosexuality to be a disease that threatens society.

    The sexual pervert (and by this term Dianetics, to be brief, includes any and all forms of deviation in Dynamic II [i.e. sexuality] such as homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual sadism, etc., and all down the catalog of Ellis and Krafft-Ebing) is actually quite ill physically... he is very far from culpable for his condition, but he is also far from normal and extremely dangerous to society....
    -- L. Ron Hubbard (Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health)

    If John Travolta is gay, I can understand why he would choose to keep it to himself. Many families have secrets that they conspire, across generations, to keep. It's their choice, and their business.

    That quote from L. Ron Hubbard is disgusting. It makes me think even less of Scientologists than I already do.

    On an entirely different note, I love Anderson Cooper!

    Anderson Cooper Kicks 'Human Barbie' Sarah Burge Off Show: 'You're Dreadful' (VIDEO)

    Did anyone else watch when he kicked that nutter off the show? It was awesome! He's usually so sweet, even when people are pretty out there (heck, the guest after her had a "relationship" with a sex doll), but that woman was horrid. She was clearly just out for publicity and kept claiming that the big bad media was twisting her words. I wasn't happy to see her on Anderson's show, but I sure did enjoy seeing him give her the boot!

    I don't normally watch Anderson. Nothing wrong with him or his show, it's just not something I make time for. However, I did watch the video after I saw reference to it on my homepage.

    Unless I wasn't really paying attention (but I think I was), the woman - the Human Barbie - actually said she would allow her daughter to have breast implants because . . . . . . the child wanted to be a plastic surgeon.

    Huh?

    So, by the same train of thought, if she wanted to be a brain surgeon, you'd let her have a lobotomy?

    OMG! The woman looks like a clown with that make-up so it was hard to take her seriously, but WOW . . . just WOW!

    I tend to see Anderson as a child in an adult body. It is easier to watch him at night, and I don't really watch him then, either.

    I understand people want to keep things private, but he is a married man and, if it is true, flashing his thing at a man or a woman for sex is just wrong. Then don't be married!

    What's sad is when religion, any religion, makes people be who they aren't and forces them to live a lie. You can't do that because the you is still there... you might be able to hide things for a while, but eventually you slip up. I think Scientology is famous for people living a lie. I think alot of things are said at these auditing sessions that are held over people's heads, especially the rich and famous in exchange for money and spreading the word.

    Same here. He is way too giggly for my taste. I did see the loony guest about surgery, she was like that on another show. So he knew what she was like I am sure.

    What's sad is when religion, and I have a feeling Scientology (not a religion though) is in the forefront for this, makes people be who they aren't and forces them to live a lie. You can't do that because the you is still there... you might be able to hide things for a while, but eventually you slip up.
    The allegations are pretty out there. I have tried to read them with an open mind, it looks like shake down to me. I mean one masseuse said he definitely asked for a male .When I have a massage, here or on holiday I always ask for a female. I am not gay

    That is why I said if they are true. These rumors have circulated for years about him. I hope they are not true as he is doing his spouse a disservice.

    Now I am hearing that Jim Parsons is gay. Big surprise-- not. Never mattered to me, he is funny, he seems like a nice guy, I love his show. He is private but he isn't trying to show himself off as something he is not. I don't need to know someone's sex life whether they are straight or gay.

    I thought Jim Parsons had come out a while ago.I guess not. As for Travolta's wife, she seems happy in her life. She appears to love him and their family very much.
