Scientology Wants Us To Believe That Tom Cruise & Laura Prepon Are Schtupping

  • At the exact same time that the season two trailer for “Orange Is The New Black” comes out, Tom Cruise just so happens to be dating Laura Prepon (AKA Alex Vause), a fellow Scientologist. I don’t believe this fake-lationship for a second. [US Weekly]
  • “X-Men” director Bryan Singer, who has been accused of drugging and raping a then-17-year-old boy, reportedly frequented all-male sex parties around Hollywood attended by older guys and barely-legal young men. Sources told TMZ that the party promoters recruit young men to attend the fetes, which are held at private homes, though allegedly they aren’t too concerned with making sure everyone is of age.  [TMZ]

Meet Catherine Wolters, The Real-Life Alex Vause From “Orange Is The New Black”

vf-catherine-cleary-wolters

If you read Piper Kerman’s memoir Orange Is The New Black or binge-watched the Netflix adaptation (and who hasn’t done that?), chances are you have wondered about the real-life woman behind Nora (in the book) and Alex Vause (the character in the show). For the first time ever, 51-year-old novelist and PhD student Catherine Cleary Wolters has spoken to Vanity Fair about her relationship with Kerman, their mutually-assured-destruction as cash smugglers for an African drug lord, and her side of their love story.

6 Celebrities With Completely Weird Ideas About Science

One of the weirder bits of news making headlines this week was that our beloved Red on “Orange Is The New Black” may be a little bit kooky in real life. Why would I say such a thing? Because the actress Kate Mulgrew has narrated a documentary with some pretty kooky beliefs about science:  namely, the idea the Earth does not actually revolve around the sun but instead the sun revolves around the Earth. Geocentricism what what?!?  In a new documentary called “The Principle” narrated by Mulgrew, she intones, “Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong.”

Considering this is the woman, Amelia reminds me, that played Captain Janeway on “Star Trek: Voyager,” it seemed a little odd that Mulgrew would be so ill-informed. Turns out, Mulgrew is now saying she was misled into doing the narration for the documentary and that she was simply a voice for hire who should have done more research. Um, no kidding? Didn’t Mulgrew realize she was narrating junk science as the junk science narration was spilling out of her mouth? [Raw StoryAV Club]

Kate Mulgrew, inadvertent or not, isn’t the first celeb to spew interesting beliefs about science. There are actually quite a few celebrities who have made comments about science that gave us a double take. Let’s take a walk through a couple celebs who we think should keep their day jobs…

Laverne Cox Refused To Play Reality TV’s “Angry Black Woman” Stereotype

“I remember being really conscious of not wanting to fight with another black woman on camera. I did an interview and the producers were like, “Well, this [other black woman on the show] said this about you. What do you have to say about that?” And I said I’m not fighting with another black woman on TV. Even during my elimination episode, when it came down to myself and another black woman, my mother — after watching — said, “Why didn’t you defend yourself?” And I just didn’t want to give television the satisfaction of seeing two black women going at it. We see that so much.”

“Orange Is The New Black” star Laverne Cox is the subject of a lengthly profile over at Buzzfeed, where she gives a fascinating walk-through of her long road to stardom. After moving to New York City to attend Marymount Manhattan College, Cox worked in nightclubs and acted in student films. Then, in 2008, she got cast on P. Diddy’s reality show, “I Want To Work For Diddy.” Believe it or not, reality TV was a positive experience for her. She credits Diddy for giving her exposure on national television, although she is very realistic and measured about what “a dubious distinction” it is to be “the first black trans woman to appear on a reality TV show.” One matter of principle for Cox, she explained, was refusing to play into the “angry black woman” stereotype that reality TV producers tried to coax out of her and instead held her tongue in situations where she otherwise might have spoken up. In a pop cultural landscape with brats like Justin Bieber and Lindsay Lohan making headlines, it’s refreshing to see a thoughtful, principled actress succeeding. [BuzzFeed]

You've Got Time

Oh, cruel, cruel Netflix. The premiere date for season two of “Orange Is The New Black” is still a loooong way off, currently inconceivable, when snow is not dumping on our heads every three days and we can actually see the ground. Friday, June 6 is so far off it may as well be the date of the next Rapture. But it is coming: Netflix coughed up this mini teaser trailer (emphasis on mini) to prove it. Pornstache is back with his pornstache. Crazy Eyes has still got crazy eyes. And Piper … well, Piper has a lot to work through. June 6 can’t come soon enough! [IndieWire]
