    Joan Collins, who became one of the most glamorous actresses of the 1980s in her steamy role as Alexis Carrington in Dynasty, is revealing that beneath the Hollywood glitz she was repressing a secret: She had been raped. And she's concerned that the misogyny of porn five decades later will victimize another generation of naive young women. The British-born star is speaking out about being raped after her attacker showed her hardcore pornography and drugged her at the tender age of 17. She went on to marry him. Collins says that her favorite actor, Maxwell Reed, invited the teen to...
  • Who Are The Most Bitter Post-Election Liberal Celebrities on Twitter?

    In honor of the late Noel Sheppard, we couldn't enjoy a Republican wave election without collecting some bitter celebrity tweets. It was fairly quiet on the celebrity-Twitter front. Some optimistic types -- John Legend, Russell Simmons, Kerry Washington -- celebrated the passage of California's Proposition 47, which will "reduce sentences in California for a handful of petty crimes — drug possession and some types of theft, such as shoplifting." Bette Midler wins for the most sulky tweet, and the rest are amusing as well: Bette Midler ✔ @BetteMidler Follow Well, we can look forward to: unregulated banks, no health care,...

    Celebrities are less likely to vote in midterm elections, just like us! Rock The Vote released a public service announcement last month with a parody of Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What" that featured public figures who explained why they planned to vote in the midterm elections, but according to public records, a number of them didn't vote in the last midterm election. At least five who appeared in the PSA — "Girls" actress Lena Dunham, comedian Whoopi Goldberg, "Orange is the New Black" actress Natasha Lyonne, "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" star E.J.

    It was February 1993. I had been a Member of Congress for one month and noticed that a visit by someone from the Washington DC Presbytery was on my schedule. I expected that they saw that I was a Presbyterian and were coming to acquaint me with the Presbyterian churches in the area. I was wrong. Three ministers in clerical collars arrived. I welcomed them in to my new office and we sat around the coffee table. The white-haired gentleman opened the conversation rather bluntly. He stated his name and said, “I am responsible for the Family Leave Act and...

    It is possible to count on two hands the number of politically active celebrities who demonstrate thoughtfulness and substance in their activism. The rest, a great horde of marginally famous mediocrities, can be counted on to reduce politics to the parochial frivolities that capture only their relatively constrained imaginations. The youth voter advocacy group Rock the Vote can be counted on every two years to put the trivial concerns of those celebrities on parade.

    They may be good at making movies, but Hollywood celebrities’ lifestyles are far from an environmentalist’s dream. Their globetrotting, multiple mansion owning ways are inconsistent with the environmental agenda they loudly promote. Showtime’s new climate change series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” premiered April 13, 2014, slightly more than a week before Earth Day 2014. It relies on several wealthy, Hollywood celebrities to spread fear about climate change. While these actors and directors talk a lot about reducing carbon footprints and saving the world, they haven’t given up their own enormous mansions and private jets.

    I'm annoyed that so many Hollywood celebrities hate the system that made them rich. Actor/comedian Russell Brand told the BBC he wants "a socialist, egalitarian system based on the massive redistribution of wealth." Director George Lucas got rich not just from movies but also by selling Star Wars merchandise. Yet he says he believes in democracy but "not capitalist democracy." Actor Martin Sheen says, "That's where the problem lies ... It's corporate America." And so on. On my TV show, actor/author Kevin Sorbo pointed out that such sentiments make little sense coming from entertainers. "It's a very entrepreneurial business. You...

    One of the downsides of being famous is that folks pay far more attention to you than they should. American celebrities are constantly under surveillance, and every word they say is subject to scrutiny. So be careful what you wish for if you desire fame. No human being should be a goldfish. That being said, some celebrities simply cannot keep their mouths shut, weighing in on topics they know little or nothing about. And when that happens, the famous person often undergoes even more scrutiny. You may remember that in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings, comedian-actor Jim Carrey...

    Most of the reason we follow celebrity news is because we like watching these people screw up in horrific ways.

It could turn out that Ryan Gosling secretly organized the 9/11 attacks and we'd just shrug and say, "Celebrities, man. That s**t goes to your head." So maybe we should stop every now and then and point out when they do nice or even heroic things. Because it does happen.

They tell the world we're awful people and then we turn right around and put money in their pockets and help them become bigger stars. Meanwhile, conservative celebrities are afraid to support Republican candidates or speak up for conservatism because they know the Left will unleash a tsunami of hysteria on them. In other words, there may be a lot more conservatives than there are liberals, but celebrities can get away with criticizing us, but not them.

McCarthy said he has "spoken to a number of (celebrities) and they're all very interested" in becoming spokespeople for a campaign to convince Chicagoans to cooperate with police. He would not give specific names, but did say Rose, who grew up in crime-plagued Englewood before achieving NBA fame, is the type...

Neither seems to have heard the president's earlier warning that, "at a certain point you've made enough money." Could both zillionaires simply have quit making money at $10 million -- and thereby given their poorer audiences a break on ticket prices?

    The first 2012 Presidential debate took place on Wednesday night, with President Obama facing off against challenger Mitt Romney.
