Quickies: Michele Bachmann Loves White People UPDATE: It’s A Hoax!

  • Leave it to Rep. Michele Bachmann to yell “Who loves white people?” at a campaign stop. Fortunately, she was only referring to the White People Soul Band, a group that performed there. She probably shouldn’t appear with musicians that sound like White Power bands, though. (Just for the record, they’re not.) [BuzzFeed] UPDATE: It has come to our attention that this Michele Bachmann video is a hoax. The video was edited to make it sound like she says “Who loves white people” when in fact she appears to have said “Who loves wet people” before talking about the rain. She was not, in fact, referring to “White People” as the band that played before her (although there is a band called White People Soul Band). My apologies for not being aware the Bachmann vid was a hoax sooner. [Gawker]

Kate Winslet Talks Escaping From That Fire

“I’m just glad that everyone is safe. And this easily could not have been the case … I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were watching the flames, and saying, ‘At the end of the day, what you realize is that all that matters is the people that you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that stuff matters.’”

Kate Winslet talks for the first time about the fire that occurred while she was vacationing on Richard Branson’s Necker Island with her children and her boyfriend, Louis Dowler. The 20 people staying at the resort made it out unharmed, Branson’s 90-year-old grandmother only because Winslet carried her out on her back. Even Branson’s tortoise managed to get out. Apparently, the fire started from a lightening strike thanks to Hurricane Irene. Irene, you have a lot to answer for. [NY Daily News]

5 Things To Know About Romola Garai From “The Hour”

I could take or leave BBC America’s “The Hour,” about Brits who run a political news program in the 1950s. It’s a thinly-veiiled “Mad Men” knockoff with a bit of mystery swirled in. Yet, every time I see that actress Romola Garai is onscreen, I cannot look away. In addition to being naturally gorgeous and possessing a vintage ’50s wardrobe to die for, Garai plays producer Bel Rowley in the show’s leading female role. Think: Peggy and Joan rolled into one with a British accent.

I knew I recognized her from somewhere, but couldn’t place quite where until I read that she played older Briony in “Atonement” and the lead in “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.” Two, uh, very different roles. After the jump, a few more must-know details about Romola Garai: Keep reading »

Amber Heard Is In A Relationship With A Woman, But Isn’t A Lesbian

“To say I came out implies that I was once in. Let me be straight about that—no pun intended—I never came out from anywhere. I’ve always lived my life the way I’ve wanted and have been honest with myself and everyone around me. It didn’t really affect anything in my career. I don’t think the producers and directors I’ve worked with care one way or another … I don’t want to be labeled as one thing or another. In the past I’ve had successful relationships with men, and now I’m in this successful relationship with a woman. When it comes to love I am totally open. And I don’t want to be put into a category, as in ‘I’m this’ or ‘I’m that.’ … [Gay marriage] is an important issue, and I’m fighting for the right to get married. For other people.”

Amber Heard of “The Playboy Club” explains to Playboy magazine that while she is in a three year relationship with a woman, photographer Tasya Van Ree, she doesn’t want to be categorized as bisexual or lesbian. I understand what she’s saying, but I have to wonder if the fact that she’s an actress playing largely straight roles has anything to do with her hesitance here. [ONTD, Playboy] Keep reading »

Matthew Fox Arrested For Punching Woman

Jack Shepherd may drink heavily. He may have resolved not to press the button, and made a slew of other assorted decisions that led to a castaway’s demise. But the #1 thing that Jack would never do? Punch a woman. Unfortunately, it appears that Matthew Fox, who played the iconic character on “Lost,” might not be able to say the same thing. Fox has been arrested for allegedly punching a female bus driver, 29-year-old Heather Borman. This apparent altercation went down Saturday night when Fox tried to board a private party bus in Cleveland, Ohio, when he was not with the party that had rented it. Fox and the driver exchanged words, and then Fox allegedly punched her in the chest and stomach. The driver struck back, supposedly breaking her hand. At which point the police were called. “This was my self-defense,” Bormann said to TMZ. “This was the only way I could protect myself … from a man beating up on a woman.” Guess we’ll have to wait and see how this case develops. In the meantime, I will hope it is not true and be incredibly disgusted if it is. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Sofia Coppola’s Purple Wedding Wonder

Over the weekend Sofia Coppola married longtime boyfriend and baby daddy Thomas Mars, frontman of the band Phoenix. But rather than go for the traditional white wedding thing, Coppola said “I do” in a lavender Azzedine Alaïa gown, custom-made by the designer. What do you think of her non-traditional look? Would you — or did you — get married in a colorful dress? [People] Keep reading »
