  • The Devil appeared on “Saturday Night Live”‘s “Weekend Update” and quit his job upon learning the details of the Penn State scandal. Because people who rape children (and people who protect child rapists!) are the kind of evil even the Devil wants nothing to do with. [Hulu]
  • Did you know that Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach who is accused of child sexual assault on eight minors, was released on a mere $100,000 unsecured bail? Which he doesn’t have to pay unless he fails to show up for a court hearing? And that, despite the prosecutor’s request, he doesn’t have to wear a leg monitor? Hmm, wonder if this gentle treatment has anything to do with the fact that the judge, Leslie Dutchcot, is a volunteer with The Second Mile? You know, the children’s charity that Sandusky set up and used as a way of meeting his victims. [Deadspin]
  • A friend of mine — also the husband of one of my dearest friends and the father of my favorite honorary “niece” – owns a very popular swimming school for children in New York City. He has written a compelling blog post about what responsibility coaches hold both on and off the field (and in and out of the pool). [Cap And Goggles] Keep reading »

Kat Von D Says Jesse James Cheated On Her With 19 Different Women

“Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year. I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship. All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love.

There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better. Although this was not a primary purpose in the relationship, I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse solely based on what they read in tabloids, to see that change is always possible – even in the people who seem hopeless. I still believe that, even if that change never occurs inside of him — because I see proof of change everyday — in others, and in myself.”

Kat Von D explains in a long post on her Facebook page — titled “Thank you, Jesse James” — that ex-fiance Jesse James cheated on her with 19 different women (at least!) during their fairly short relationship. She goes on to say, “I think it just made me sad today to imagine him still in that dark place — where seeking validation through the attention of women takes precedence over being a good father, a sincere friend, a better coworker, and a happy individual.” Personally, I really, really, really hope she’s the last woman to take Jesse James seriously as a partner/man ever again. The dude is grotesque. [Facebook]

My favorite sketch from this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was definitely the one in which, one by one, a team of coworkers admits that when they need a good cry, they put on Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s true — I don’t think I can think of another song that makes my eyes moisten so quickly. I even lip-sync emphatically; it’s soothing. I especially like the quick shout out to “Friday Night Lights” — I still need the occasional cry when I think about Coach and Tami Taylor no longer being on TV. Sniff … sniff … Time to open iTunes and put on some Adele.

“I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent. I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am… I believe in the future of our children, and I will remain an active supporter and participant in education-focused initiatives.”

Sasha Grey defends herself against those who were outraged that a former porn star read to first and third grade students at an elementary school in Compton as part of Read Across America Day. I applaud her for being passionate about such an important issue and for giving this classy response to those who believe they are in a position to judge her. Bravo! [TMZ]
