Julianne Moore is set to play Sarah Palin in “Game Change,” the HBO movie about the 2008 presidential election. But a few years before, she was in line to play a different female figure in the race—Hillary Clinton. Apparently, Julianne was cast as Clinton in HBO’s “The Special Relationship.” But when she had to back out to film “The Kids Are All Right,” a movie which netted her a Golden Globe nod, the role went to Hope Davis. But never fear—here is her makeup test shot. This makes us feel super confident that Julianne can check her fierce redheadedness and go politico. [PopEater] Keep reading »
“Women are held to a different standard in all areas. Let’s work harder, produce more and better and get over it. I’m through whining about a liberal press that holds conservative women to a different standard because it doesn’t do any good to whine about it.”
— Sarah Palin, as much as I hate to admit it, had a point on Fox News the other night when she spoke about double standards women face (in response to Michele Bachmann noodling a presidential run and comedian Bill Maher calling Palin a “t**t.”) Nothing is worse than so-called “liberals” who think it’s acceptable to make sexist comments about conservative female politicians. (Sarah’s complaint about the “liberal media” is a bunch of bunk, though.) [USA Today] Keep reading »
In “Kathy Griffin: 50 & Not Pregnant,” the comedienne discussed the “Palin Army” that has invaded her life (via social media) with threats following her many jokes at the Palin family’s expense.
One Sarah Palin supporter wrote, “literally, ‘I’m coming to your house tomorrow to murder you,’” said Griffin during the stand-up special.
But she noted, “The Palin Army probably could never really survive against the Gay Army. Because we don’t need guns. We have sarcasm and we have snark and we have our verbal [beep] rapier wit and, dammit, that’s how we conquer.” Read more… Keep reading »
Julianne Moore will be playing Sarah Palin in ‘Game Change,’ an upcoming HBO movie about the 2008 election.
Palin stopped by “Hannity” (weekdays, 9 p.m. ET on Fox News) where she was asked what she thought of Moore portraying her.
“Well, I’m all about job creation, and I guess I could provide some of the gals who pretend like they’re me some job security,” Palin said. “I would ask, though, if they’re of the mind of spreading the wealth around that perhaps they could spring for one of my kids’ sets of braces or something, as they capitalize on pretending to be me.” Read more… Keep reading »
Back in January, Bristol Palin revealed that she had a new boyfriend. “He’s awesome with Tripp and we’ve been really good friends for a long time, and he’s just a really good guy,” she said. “He’s a family guy. He’s a Christian. We have all the same religious beliefs and our families both come first in our lives, and we just have a lot in common… He loves Tripp and he’s just awesome to be around.”
Now finally, we get her new dude’s name so we can compare him to Levi Johnston see if he’s good enough for our Bristol. But so far, we’re not sold. Keep reading »
“You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she’s kind of this… She’s a 50-year-old adult bully is really what she is… She’s kind of a has-been comedian and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of my children. As she had stated on CNN that her New Year’s resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little too far. Kathy, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone.”
—Sarah Palin reacts to the news that Kathy Griffin, who declared verbal war on Willow and faux-dated Levi Johnston, will be playing a Palin-esque character on an upcoming episode of “Glee.” Wonder if Kathy’s impersonation will be a quarter as good as Tina Fey’s? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Bristol Palin‘s memoir is coming out this summer and it will be called Not Afraid Of Life. Kudos to you for making reference to anti-abortion propaganda, Bristol! Not Afraid Of Life, which is being published by William Morrow, will cover her 20 years on Earth, including her appearance on “Dancing With the Stars,” her religious faith, and presumably her mother’s run as the Republican nominee for vice president of the United Stated. I, for one, am praying Bristol will dish some dirt on her baby daddy ex, Levi Johnston, but unfortunately the Palins seem to be too classy for that. More realistically, she’ll just tell us alllll about how every pregnant teen girl should totally have a baby because it’s so easy to get nationally televised TV gigs and book deals. Gooooooo abstinence?! [NY Times] Keep reading »
A former aide to Sarah Palin has penned an unauthorized tell-all (i.e. juicy stuff!) and is on the hunt for a publisher.
You can stll have Sarah Palin fatigue and be just a tiny bit curious about what’s in Frank Bailey’s Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years. According to gossip blog Gawker, which obtained a copy, Bailey based the book on 60,000 emails between he and Palin. Keep reading »
