Michael MooreSeems there’s still some bad blood between General Motors and Michael Moore vis-à-vis his film Roger & Me, which painted an unflattering view of the automaker some 20 years ago. GM has now banned Michael Moore from Detroit theaters they own where he is premiering his new film Capitalism: A Love Story. Watch:

Patrick Swayze dies of cancer at 57

Patrick SwayzeAfter a long battle with pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze died today at 57.

“Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months,” said a statement released Monday evening by his publicist, Annett Wolf. No other details were given.

Fans of the actor were saddened to learn in March 2008 that Swayze was suffering from a particularly deadly form of cancer.

He had kept working despite the diagnosis, putting together a memoir with his wife and shooting “The Beast,” an A&E drama series for which he had already made the pilot. It drew a respectable 1.3 million viewers when the 13 episodes ran in 2009, but A&E said it had reluctantly decided not to renew it for a second season.

Swayze starred in a number of popular films including the Outsiders, Dirty Dancing, To Wong Foo, and of course, Ghost.

We all had the time of our lives watching you Patrick. RIP.

Former Miss California Carrie Prejean suing for religious discrimination

entertainment, lgbt, religion 2 Comments »

Carrie PrejeanForever playing the victim, former Miss California and conservative darling Carrie Prejean has decided to sue her the Miss California organization for religious discrimination.

Prejean just filed the suit in L.A. County Superior Court, accusing Moakler and pageant honcho Keith Lewis of religious discrimination, defamation, public disclosure of private facts, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Prejean was dethroned/fired from her post as Miss California USA back on June 10, nearly two months after she spoke out against gay marriage at the April 19th Miss USA competition.

Prejean claims the Miss Cali people “conspired to get rid of her” beginning on April 21st — when she said on the “Today” show that she would rather be “biblically correct than politically correct.”

Prejean also will have a book out in November called “Still Standing,” detailing her experiences since coming out as a homophobe on national television. Coincidence?

Once a media whore… always a media whore.
