Fran Drescher Has Remained Besties With Her Gay Ex-Husband

“He had already been living a gay life away from me after we divorced, and he said, ‘I don’t want you to be shocked. I’m dating men.’ … During our marriage he had told me he might be bisexual, but he wanted to stay married … By the time he told me, I had survived uterine cancer. Nothing could shake me … It’s great that we had the ability and the wisdom to reinvent our relationship. All those years weren’t for nothing. We’re very tight. We’re best friends.”

Fran Drescher on her relationship with her her now gay ex-husband, Marc Jacobson. I could not approve of this more. After 21 years of marriage her husband came out and her reaction is inspiring. More marriages should end so well. Also, I love that her new sitcom, “Happily Divorced,” is based on her experience. [People] Keep reading »

Denise Richards Promises Her Memoir Won’t Smear Charlie Sheen

“I get into the good stuff about my marriage because people have only gotten the rotten stuff. There was a beautiful love story between us … I went through a lot and I get asked a lot of questions about that time in my life so I figured that I would share my story and, hopefully, anyone that is dealing with challenges will know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We had one of the worst divorces so if we get into a good place, that’s great.”

Denise Richards shares with reporters what they can expect in her memoir, The Real Girl Next Door, which will be released in late July. Apparently, anyone expecting a smear of Charlie Sheen a la their divorce trial will be sorely disappointed. As will anyone expecting Shakespearean-level writing. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Tracy Morgan Apologizes Again, Speaks Out In Favor Of Gay Marriage

“Of all the sicknesses, there is probably none more abusive than homophobia. My heart is committed to giving everyone the same rights that I deserve for myself. I don’t care if you love the same sex as long as you have the ability to love someone I am deeply sorry for the comments I made. What I am most sad about is the comments I made about kids and bullying. … I believe everyone deserves the right to be happy and marry who they want too; gay, white, black, male or female. Let me know where the rally’s at Russ. I’m there!”

Tracy Morgan, who caught major flack late last week for “joking” during a stand-up appearance that he would kill his son if he came out as gay, apologizes again for his actions in an interview with Russell Simmons at Global Grind. Morgan also seems interested in making amends with the gay community by not only speaking out in favor of gay marriage (and the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell), but lending his support at rallies and other activist events. Personally, I hope Morgan’s apology is accepted, that he is taken up on his offer to work with gay rights causes, and that he actually follows through. Tina Fey said that the Tracy Morgan who went on that homophobic rant is not the Tracy Morgan she knows and I, for one, would like him to have the opportunity to prove it.

The Surprising Reason Erykah Badu Stopped Wearing Her Head Wrap

“I’m always evolving. I visited Cuba to get a santerĂ­a reading in 2000 and I didn’t know exactly what to expect. I went there, sat on the curb and waited for my reading. I had on this white head wrap and this white long dress and all of my jewelry, because it was part of me. It was who I was. I was overdressed because everybody else had on T-shirts and baggy tights …”

Kathleen Hanna Calls Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” Song “Straight Up Offensive”

“I mean, is it really that different when it’s a skinny white woman in a bathing suit singing [about gay rights]? None of these women ever wear pants, first of all. Second of all, just because you’re wearing a goofy hat doesn’t make it performance art. I mean, that’s just my feeling about it. A lot of the music just sounds like bad Euro disco, though that first Ke$ha song ‘TiK ToK’ was good. But (Katy Perry‘s) ‘I Kissed a Girl‘ was just straight-up offensive. The whole thing is like, I kissed a girl so my boyfriend could masturbate about it later. It’s disgusting. It’s exactly every male fantasy of fake lesbian porn. It’s pathetic. And she’s not a good singer. I don’t want to trash other women. I mean, I think Jason Mraz is horrible. It’s not just like I hate other women performers. Jason Mraz, and the new James Blunt song is the worst thing that has ever been created on the face of the Earth.”

— This CNN interview with Kathleen Hanna about the new Le Tigre documentary, “Who Put The Bomp,” is amazeballs. I may not agree with every single thing she says (Lady Gaga does not sound like bad Euro disco!), but she’s always thought-provoking. And I love, love, love that she has the ovaries to speak her mind. [CNN] Keep reading »

You Are Cordially Invited To Jack White And Karen Elson’s Divorce Party

“We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”

— I will never understand why celeb couples feel obligated to release public statements about their breakups. At least Karen Elson and Jack White are (amicably?) going out with a bang. Does a couple get to register for a divorce party, too? [Pitchfork] Keep reading »
