MAT FRANCO is another hottie

QUINTAVIOUS JOHNSON is a kid hottie at 12

SONS of WEIRDNESS has no hottie’s except for its lead singer – I don’t think they are special in any way and my partner thinks that their harpist is a serial killer? Don’t ask me – that’s what she thinks.

FLASHBACK: to LANDAU EUGENE MURPHY JR who is now headlining in Vegas in his own show with Sinatra tunes.

That guy showed p at AGT with his last pieces of clothing on his body. This show actually DID change this dude’s life and he deserved it. His wife and he are unfortunately getting divorced now but sometimes you lose stuff when you win big.

My partner loves Emelie West

Her performance with Cyndi Lauper – made me cry!

Very moving -

Also moving was the show before when Howard Stern & Rosie O’Donnell hugged each other

I totally love Rosie & Howard is cool – he reminds me so much of JOEY RAMONE who is dearly departed and we all really loved Joey

Big talk lanky Joey always stooping over to accommodate the pretty girls peering up at him. I always wanted to be his girlfriend. He passed away the same year and month as my own mom. I – well – nuff said.

Just call it magic.

Mat Franco made America’s Got Talent history Wednesday night as the first magician to win the NBC variety competition.

“I couldn’t help but just be shocked and honored,” the Johnston, Rhode Island, native tells PEOPLE. “It’s great to be an inspiration to people. … The underlying message is following your passion. Whatever it is you like to do, do it: Dreams can come true.”

Making it big in the biz has been a dream of Franco’s since he was 4, when he started to teach himself card tricks. The season 9 winner used to record the pros on TV and watch them back in slow-motion, often with his grandma, Eleanor, who was one of his biggest cheerleaders during his AGT journey.

“She ran up on stage at the end of the show at the finale and told me how proud she was,” he says, adding that his family has “supported this whole crazy dream of mine since before I can remember.”

One thing he does remember is often being embarrassed to tell people he was a magician – especially girls.

“It has a certain connotation to it, so you wouldn’t necessarily want to bring it up,” says Franco, 26. “Maybe that can change. Now that magic has won the biggest talent show in the world, maybe that’ll give magic a little credit.”

Before wowing the judges, the struggling magician made his way through the college circuit, performing at campuses across the country to make ends meet. Now, Franco loves stepping into the spotlight on a bigger platform.

“It’s night and day if you consider the college campus dining hall versus Radio City Music Hall,” he says of the overnight switch in venues.

“There was this moment when we were rehearsing for the first live show, and I look up, and all these [production] people who are the best in their field are all coming together to help me,” Franco says. “It was emotional for me having a team like that. I felt like David Copperfield for a second. It was pretty wild.”

Next, Franco will hit up Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas to headline theAmerica’s Got Talent Live at The AXIS show with fellow top acts from season 9 on Sept. 26 and 27.

Fraternity Suspended After Accusations It Used Color-Coded System To Drug Female Students

Posted: 09/19/2014 4:53 pm EDT Updated: 09/19/2014 5:00 pm EDT

The Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is being investigated by the school, its national organization and campus police after accusations that female guests who attended a Sept. 12 party were marked with color-coded Xs on their hands and given date rape drugs.

The national TKE organization told The Huffington Post it has temporarily suspended the Zeta-Zeta chapter at UW-Milwaukee and is working with the university to investigate the situation. The university said via Twitter on Thursday that it alsosuspended the fraternity.

“Police tell us that one person has been arrested in the case, but has not been charged pending review by the district attorney,” Tom Luljak, vice chancellor for university relations at UW-Milwaukee, told HuffPost. “The police have not released the name of the individual who was arrested.”

University officials told HuffPost there was no report of sexual violence at the fraternity on the night of Sept. 12.

At least three women and a man were found that night vomiting and unable to walk at Sandburg Hall, a university residence, reports WISN, a local ABC affiliate. All four needed to be hospitalized. One of the women told police she experienced a “weird feeling” before blacking out, according to the Associated Press.

The three women were each marked with a red X on their hand from the TKE party,according to a search warrant affidavit cited by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The man had a black X on his hand, but told police he drank from the same cup as a woman with a red X.

Female partygoers were allowed to buy an index card for $8 that provided “all access to the house” and drinks, the paper reported. One of the women told police “you have to be hot” to purchase one of the cards, according to the Journal-Sentinel.

Others who attended the party told university police that cups were moved under the bar to mix the drinks, and that drinks appeared cloudy when served, the Journal-Sentinel reported.

According to Wisconsin news outlet WTMJ, police searched the frat house and confiscated plastic cups, glasses, alcohol, cellphones, laptops, bongs and other drug paraphernalia.

“We are deeply concerned about these allegations because the safety of our students is our number one priority,” Luljak said. “Our police are aggressively pursuing this investigation to determine exactly what happened and who may have been involved.”

There were reports of three sexual assault at the same fraternity last year, according to the Journal-Sentinel.

ROB FORD

TORONTO (AP) — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s doctor says the mayor has cancer.

Dr. Zane Cohen, a colorectal surgeon at Mount Sinai hospital, said Wednesday Ford has a malignant sarcoma tumor which he described as “very rare” and “very difficult.”

Ford has been hospitalized for a week with a tumor in his abdomen.

The mayor withdrew his re-election bid Friday as he undergoes treatment, dramatically ending a campaign he had doggedly pursued despite a stint in rehab and calls for him to quit amid drug and alcohol scandals.

Doug Ford is running for mayor in his brother’s place.

I STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH KIRA – SCREW THESE NEGATIVE MORONS!

WASHINGTON — Kira Kazantsev has been Miss America for only two days, but she’s already taking a stand on issues that don’t usually make their way into the pageant. Kazantsev, who is from New York, made domestic violence the focus of her platform, speaking out about how she was in an abusive relationship in college.

“I want people to stop asking, ‘Why doesn’t she just leave?'” Kazantsev said in an interview with NPR. “Every woman is an expert in her own case, and there are so many extenuating circumstances that lead to a woman staying with her abuser.” She said she felt incredibly “alone” in the relationship and wanted people to start talking about domestic violence more openly.

Now, Kazantsev is getting attention for something else. Many conservatives are criticizing her for the fact that she once interned at Planned Parenthood.

Kazantsev’s LinkedIn profile notes that for three months in 2013, she worked at Planned Parenthood in Hempstead, New York, assisting with education programs.

The pro-life site LifeNews.com wrote a piece Monday taking aim at Kazantsev’s work with a company they say “snuffs out of the lives of young baby girls.”

So the woman representing the nation as the new Miss America interned for the very organization that has killed millions of Americans in abortions.

Kazantsev worked for the abortion giant just outside New York City proper for three months, from February 2013-April 2013. One month later, one of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in New York City botched an abortion. The incident occurred at the Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood in New York City, New York.

The criticism spread to Twitter: THESE BITCHES JUST CAN’T BE HAPPY ABOUT ANYTHING:

Here’s what is hilarious about Michelle Malkin’s response: Malkin has a house hubby who gave up his job to stay at home while Malkin promoted her blog to millions. This Miss America does not represent Malkin’s view of America because Malkin is a female dick wearing nazi from the Philippines and This Miss America has balls and is a woman who believes in her convictions. Screw Malkin – that Philappino fucktard.

BUT SINCE WHEN DOES A “MISS AMERICA” GET DISQUALIFIED FOR ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING GOOD FOR OTHERS WITH HER LIFE?

MALKIN AND THESE MALCONTENT REPUBLICAN SQUIRTS NEED TO STFU – WOMEN HAVE RIGHTS OVER OUR BODIES – MALKIN DOES NOT QUALIFY AS A WOMAN – SHE IS A MAN WITH A PENIS PRETENDING TO BE A WOMAN. HER HUSBAND WEARS A BOOB BRA.

In a statement to The Huffington Post, Eric Ferrero, vice president of communications for Planned Parenthood, said the organization was proud of Kazantsev:

Miss America Kira Kazantsev interned last year at her local Planned Parenthood affiliate, where she supported staff members who provide sex education in the community and at local schools. Several past Miss Americas have supported Planned Parenthood’s mission, and we’re thrilled and proud that one of our former interns is the new Miss America.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading provider of sex education. Every year, we provide more than one million people with accurate, nonjudgmental information about relationships, sexuality, and healthy decision-making. An overwhelming majority of the American public supports access to comprehensive sex education in middle and high schools — the type of sex education programming that Planned Parenthood provides and which gives parents tools to have conversations with their families, and helps keep young people safe and healthy.

Kazantsev, 23, has also interned for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) campaign and the political consulting firm Solidarity Strategies. In 2012, she helped set up the presidential debate at Hofstra University.

UPDATE: 6:21 p.m. — Kazantsev’s LinkedIn profile is no longer available.

Last but not least, OBAMA ARMS SYRIAN REBELS TO FIGHT ISIS-BOEHNER SIDES WITH OBAMA?

I felt sick all day today

This is proably the reason why.

I don’t believe we should be getting involved like this

Let the Syrians fight these assholes themselves but noooo

Obama is giving them arms and the Congress is divided (OF COURSE)

and SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE stands with the WHITE HOUSE AKA OBAMA

The world has ended.

Goodbye!

Divided Congress Backs Obama’s ISIS Plan

Posted: 09/17/2014 5:09 pm EDT Updated: 2 hours ago

WASHINGTON — A divided House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to back President Barack Obama’s request to arm and train Syrian rebels to combat the Islamic State.

Upending the normal partisan divides, numerous Democrats and Republicans came down on opposite sides of the vote, with most high-ranking lawmakers backing the White House plan to spend $500 million to vet some 5,000 members of the Free Syrian Army and then supply them with weapons.

The final vote was 273-156, with a total of 159 Republicans and 114 Democrats voting in favor of the measure. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who rarely votes, also voted for the measure in a show of support for the president’s request.

 Even Iraq War veterans in the House were divided: Reps. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) voted no on arming Syrian rebels, while Reps. Kinzinger (R-Ill.), Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) and Tim Griffin (R-Ark.) voted yes.

But even many members who backed the measure — which was attached to a short-term bill meant to fund the federal government — expressed deep dissatisfaction, especially Republicans who didn’t think the effort was enough to combat the Islamic State, often referred to as ISIS or ISIL.

“The president spoke last week and he presented nothing that could be remotely considered a strategy,” said Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) in the House floor debate. “Yet the American people understand the destruction of radical Islamic terrorism is mandatory.”

Many other lawmakers who backed the bill said it would have been better for Congress to vote on a new declaration of war to make the president’s authority clear.

“We can’t have a half-pregnant war,” said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.). “We have got to fight to win and wipe out this terrorist surge.”

Overall, the House decided that between the brutality of ISIS and the possibility that the group could someday threaten the homeland, it was better to let the White House proceed with its plans. Nevertheless, many legislators said they should be debating whether or not to give the White House explicit new war authority, rather than enabling its current military actions by providing funding without an actual vote on the use of military force.

“This vote, without a vote on a wider use of military force, will be taken by the public, the media and perhaps even the courts as a de facto authorization of military force in Syria,” said Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), whose district includes the World Trade Center site destroyed on Sept. 11.

While the Obama administration has said it welcomes a new authorization to use military force, it has not asked for one, and has asserted that the Authorizations on the Use of Military Force — one passed after the Sept. 11 attacks and one before the 2003 Iraq invasion — are sufficient, even though neither AUMF involved Syria, and the Islamic State did not exist when they were passed.

Congress is set to go on vacation at the end of this week so members may campaign for re-election, and it likely will not be back to consider a war declaration until mid-November, if ever.

Nadler and others said the situation would leave Congress without a voice on its constitutional responsibility to declare war. It would also leave numerous questions unanswered.

“This would undermine our ability to seriously debate the real questions before us,” Nadler said, laying some of them out. “How deadly is the threat we’re facing? And what will happen when American fliers are shot down over Syria and perhaps beheaded on television by ISIL? Will the demand for revenge be overwhelming? Just how steep is the slippery slope we are embarking upon? How long will the conflict last? Is there an exit strategy? What does victory look like? How much will it cost? How many U.S. lives will be lost? Whom will we be arming in Syria? Do they share our long-term interests? What are the odds those arms will be turned against us or our allies?”

Nevertheless, the Senate was expected to take up and pass the measure as soon as Thursday, leaving the constitutional questions standing until after the election. The funding for Syrian rebels was attached to a so-called “continuing resolution” that will keep the U.S. government funded until Dec. 11.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that 172 Democrats had voted in favor of the measure. In fact, 114 Democrats voted in favor of it.

FAILED TV SHOWS: EXTANT (terrible) & THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA

HALLIE BERRY was miscast as the ASTRONAUT who is married to a white scientist and who are parents to the android, ETHAN?

It had many WHAT THE FUCK moments but it sucked so hard my teeth hurt to watch it.

So that’s gone – thankfully

THEN

There is the new DEBRA MESSING show “THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA

She is the mother of two terrible boys (If they were my sons – they would be dead)

She is a cop with a cheating husband whom she wants to get rid of for cheating

Her character is a cop and her husband is also a cop – that’s why he cheats plus he’s good looking

JOSH LUCAS, left over from FAILED TV SHOW, THE FIRM where he played MITCH McDEER A GREAT LAWYER AND ACTOR

Here he is wasted.

It was hard to believe that DEBRA MESSING was a songwriter in SMASH – that terrible musical show that my partner loved and I loathed

And here Debbie is a mom to evil two boys, a dumb ass cop cheating hubby and she’s a cop?

PATRICK BREEN, actor that I know was very lucky when he was shot in the head in the first show.

He got out unscathed.

The captain is the photographer of the GEORGE SEGAL show that was on the air forever – “JUST SHOOT ME!”

Enrico Colantoni

Enrico Colantoni by Gage Skidmore.jpg

This show is so bad my partner went to bed….just saying

I’ll start calling DEBBIE (Debra) when she finds a good role.

GET OFF MY SCREEN GRACE!

AND THEN in the end, ENRICO is the bad guy – He’s lucky to get off this show!

AND THEN

Her soon to be ex husband, JAKE, becomes her precinct Captain taking the place of Enrico who gets arrested.

And the entire episode is dedicated to the memory of DEBBIE’s mother????

I’d come back to haunt, just saying.

Review

Debra Messing’s talents misfire in ‘The Mysteries of Laura’

Among the head-scratchers in ‘The Mysteries of Laura': Debra Messing as a homicide detective?
Debra Messing is talented, but her strengths work against her in ‘The Mysteries of Laura’
‘The Mysteries of Laura’s’ comedy isn’t funny enough, and its crime-solving isn’t smart enough

Last year, NBC came at the fall with “The Blacklist,” a series smartly leveraging certain narrative trends (quasi-criminal genius seeking redemption) to showcase the talents of popular television star James Spader. The result? Bull’s-eye.

This year, NBC opens on Wednesday with “The Mysteries of Laura,” a series that also leans into a trend (the blurring of drama and comedy) with the hope of re-purposing the talents of popular television star Debra Messing. The result?

Well, how many points do you get for grazing the white part around the edge of the target?

It certainly doesn’t help that the show opens with her in hot pursuit of some gun-wielding thug as he races through a very crowded Battery Park. Wearing a raincoat that she will then cling to throughout the episode as if it had been bequeathed to her by Mr. Peter Falk, she mutters “humorous” asides like “why are all these people in the park? Don’t they have jobs?” before pulling a gun and aiming it at said thug, who grabs a hostage. Then she fires Right At Their Heads.

But that’s how “The Mysteries of Laura” rolls: mathematically impossible.

Problem is, none of it is funny enough to compensate for its complete conflict with any semblance of crime investigation. Even one as silly as that of the premiere, in which a rich guy calls Laura and her boss to his house because someone has threatened his life, and then is killed while the two cops are standing in the driveway!

Also, the guy who gets killed appears to have ransacked the scarf drawer on the “Smash” set. (Really? You swathe a guy in scarves for a Debra Messing premiere?)

Making her way through the suspects, Laura finally reveals the killer in a scene almost as absurd as the opener.

Some of this may be an issue of translation. Television’s increasingly liberal immigration policy is a wonderful thing, but many fine shows find the journey to America arduous, assimilation imperfect. And the very things that made Messing a star — her talent for physical comedy, her outsized expressiveness — work against her here.

Drama may morph to dramedy, but “The Mysteries of Laura” is not a sitcom, and too often Messing is allowed to forget that, playing, big, as if to a live audience. Which isn’t, you know, there.

She’s best in her scenes with Lucas, who, one can only hope, is going to have more to do in future episodes. Then, she fully occupies a familiar but still compelling role: the woman who has too long confused drama with passion and is now trying to self-correct.

If only the show would do the same.
