Marianne Barnard told The Sun that in 1975, her mother took her to a Malibu beach, where she met Polanski. “She explained that this man wanted to take pictures of me in this fur coat.

Facebook to political commentator Michael Smerconish: Denied. (Wayne Campbell voice.) The CNN host usually posts a Facebook live video on Saturday mornings for his 61,000 followers, but says he was stuck in “Facebook purgatory” and unable to share the clip himself. “The reason is that Facebook is not convinced that I am me,” said Smerconish in the clip. “And so I have been blocked from my own Facebook page and the only way to get this posted is to transmit it to Tc and ask her to post it because her privileges are still in order.” Also Read: Bill O'Reilly »

Sean Spicer Flunks With Harvard Students: ‘He’s Incredibly Inarticulate’

10 hours ago

How much are Harvard students enjoying having Sean Spicer around campus? Not a whole lot, apparently. The former White House press secretary is now a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, where he’s “engaging students in discourse on topical issues of today,” as the school puts it. But base on what students told the Huffington Post, Spicer’s pearls of wisdom have been, uh, severely underwhelming so far. “He’s incredibly inarticulate, so it was really difficult to take any sort of notes,” one student said about Spicer’s lectures. »

5 Years of Colton Haynes’ Most Spectacular Halloween Costumes Over the Years (Photos)

12 hours ago

Actor Colton Haynes often plays the straight man: stoic, serious, or youthfully determined, Haynes’ roles often define the modern-day protagonist, even when he’s part of the secondary cast. With that in mind, Haynes’ Halloween activities couldn’t be any farther away from his on-screen personas. For over half a decade, Haynes’ creative costumes have been making headlines, and this has served to propel the actor to take on even crazier personas every year. While he’s often found in the spandex of a certain red vigilante, Haynes often opts for female characters and over-the-top makeup. This year was no different: With massive prosthetic breasts, »

Michael Rapaport Skewers Trump on Global Warming, Dubs Him ‘Dumb Donald’ (Video)

14 hours ago

The verdict is in: actor Michael Rapaport and President Donald Trump are on opposite ends of the climate change “debate.” The star of Netflix’s “Atypical” took to Twitter on Saturday morning to post one of his trademark sharp-tongued videos, skewering the president for his skepticism of global warming. Rapaport was at an ice skating rink bearing Trump’s name — or as he called him, “dumb Donald, Donald the f—-g deviant ” — and highlighted the rink’s conspicuous lack of, well, ice. “There’s no global warming, right? Look at your ice skating rink, you f—cking dummy,” Rapaport said, »

Bob Weinstein’s Ex-Assistant Says He Knew Harvey Harassed Women Decades Ago (Report)

17 hours ago

In a sluggish weekend for the box office, the only success to be found is Lionsgate’s “Boo! 2,” the ninth film in Tyler Perry’s “Madea” franchise. The $20 million film is on pace to hit its projected target with a $21 million opening from 2,388 screens. The horror comedy made $7.5 million on Friday, including $760,000 from Thursday previews.

Bill Maher Says Trump Is Grosser ‘Creep’ Than Harvey Weinstein Due to Call to Gold Star Widow (Video)

Bill Maher strayed a bit far with the opening analogy in his Friday night monologue, suggesting that President Donald Trump was a fatter, grosser “creep” than disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. “On Monday, Trump called the pregnant widow of a dead American soldier to console her and ended up pouring salt in the wound and feuding with her all week. Who knew empathy was so complicated?” Maher began his monologue on HBO’s “Real Time” Friday. “I mean, if you could take a week where it was revealed that Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted every single female in show business and still be. »
