I am hardly a Sarah Palin supporter. I am also not a big fan of Bristol Palin. And I am definitely not a fan of people who express their own distaste for these two by telling the latter that the former is “a whore.” Last night, Bristol Palin was out at a bar in West Hollywood — and rode the mechanical bull — when a heckler shouted that her mother was a whore. Bristol wasn’t hearin’ that and confronted the loudmouth. Their exchange went something like this… Keep reading »
Joe McGinniss is definitely on Sarah Palin‘s s**t list. McGinniss moved to Alaska, next door to the Palins, to write a tome, The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, which comes out on Tuesday. He engaged in some pretty sketchy reporting to make it happen, like bringing a gift to the Palin house and engaging Track in a conversation without disclosing his purpose for being there. But, the book also makes some amazingly juicy claims about Sarah Palin. For example, McGinniss alleges that she has cheated on Todd twice—once with an NBA star. Furthermore, he claims that Palin was once seen snorting cocaine. While snowmobiling.

Oh, look, yet another documentary about Sarah Palin. What a surprising topic. The latest Palin doc is titled “You Betcha” and was funded with $30K in crowd-sourced funding from Kickstarter, as well as private donations. It debuts at the Toronto Film Festival this weeknd and will open in New York City and Los Angeles on Sept. 30. What could this latest Palin tell us about the ex-Alaskan governor that we don’t already know from several years on non-stop media coverage, as well as her conservative-slanted bio-pic “The Undefeated“? That is something we’ll have to wait and see. Come on, people. I love documentaries more than the average person, but this insanity has got to stop. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
Levi Johnston‘s sister, Mercede Johnston, makes her big Playboy debut this week, taking it all off for a four-page pictorial accompanied by an interview where she launches some pretty big allegation grenades against Sarah Palin and her family. And these are in addition to the charge Bristol Palin allegedly got pregnant on purpose. After the jump, we rate the probable likelihood of Mercede’s latest claims about the Palin clan. If I were Mercede, I wouldn’t say such things about a family of sharp shooters. Keep reading »
Whatever you think of Sarah Palin‘s politics and penchant for moose hunting, there is one thing that’s hard to deny about the woman: she has really nice hair. Apparently, she gets her updos done at the Beehive, a small salon in Wasilla, Alaska. And now, the salon will be the subject of a two-part reality TV series on TLC, the same channel that brought you “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” The show will be called “Big Hair Alaska” and, according to the press release will go “inside a busy hair salon in Wasilla, Alaska, where the personalities of the owner and her staff are as big as the hairstyles they create.” Think of it as “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” meets “Twin Peaks” with a heavy side-order of everyone’s favorite hockey mom.

“It was hard—really, really hard … It’s hard to play someone who is very present in people’s minds, who’s on television, who’s very idiosyncratic, I did my best. We’ll see, I hope we pulled it off … [The accent took] practice, an incredible amount of practice. I had to listen to it over and over again. My son was embarrassed because [Palin's speeches were] all that was on my iPod. He said, ‘Where’s your music?’ I erased all my music.”
—Julianne Moore talks to MTV News about what it was like playing Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change.” For some reason, I am picturing her and Tina Fey at a bar, sipping gin and tonics and trading war stories about the complexities of winking correctly and finding the exact right Alaskan lilt.

Guys, we are obviously in the midst of a liberal conspiracy. A Nevada man named James Linlor is suing his state’s Department of Motor Vehicles because they refused to issue him a vanity plate for his car that reads “GOPALIN.” As in, Sarah Palin. Apparently, the Nevada DMV dictates that when it comes to vanity plates, “No combination of letters, numbers or spaces is allowed if it … (e)xpresses contempt, ridicule or superiority of … political affiliation.” Linlor and his lawyer claim that the DMV unconstitutionally applied this stipulation. They gave as proof the fact that the DMV had issued plates that read “DMOCRAT” and “AL GORE.” Linlor also put in an application for the plate “GOOBAMA,” and said that was approved, no problem.
It almost sounds like this guy has a point … except that, after being initially denied, he was issued a “GOPALIN” plate. More than six months ago. Keep reading »
