I really don’t want to like Guy Fieri. It’s easy enough not to like him when you watch his TV shows, I mean for god’s sake the man calls aioli “donkey sauce.” If you’re going to act the way he acts on his shows, you could at least have the decency to be a shifty person so we can all hate you and move on.
Guy Fieri, though, is a good person. A really good person. He’s given millions of dollars of his own money to support restaurant workers affected by the coronavirus, stood up for gay rights and even did what he could to help the victims and responders of the 2018 California wildfires. It’s just a shame he’s such a douche.
Still, douche or not he’s still a better person that Christopher Columbus.
And that’s why one man, Tyler Woodbridge, has started a petition to rename Columbus, Ohio to Flavortown, Ohio in honor of Fieri.
Beloved Buckeyes one and all,
Columbus is an amazing city, but one whose name is tarnished by the very name itself. Its namesake, Christopher Columbus, is in The Bad Place because of all his raping, slave trading, and genocide. That’s not exactly a proud legacy.
Why not rename the city Flavortown? The new name is twofold. For one, it honors Central Ohio’s proud heritage as a culinary crossroads and one of the nation’s largest test markets for the food industry. Secondly, cheflebrity Guy Fieri was born in Columbus, so naming the city in honor of him (he’s such a good dude, really) would be superior to its current nomenclature.
I’m not up to date on my Columbus town charter, so whether it takes a council vote or a petition or a town referendum – let’s get the ball rolling for a more flavorful tomorrow.

Say it ain’t so, Ron.
Ron Jeremy has been a popular porn star for decades because of his huge manhood, his ability, in his youth, to get said manhood into his own mouth and for proving a fat, schlubby guy who doesn’t manscape can be a sex symbol.
Ron has been dogged by rape accusations for years, and those accusations have finally caught up with him as Deadline reports LA’s District Attorney has charged Ron with three counts of rape and one of sexual assault.
In May 2014, Jeremy is accused of forcibly raping a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood.
Jeremy allegedly sexually assaulted two women, ages 33 and 46, on separate occasions at a West Hollywood bar in 2017. The complaint filed by the D.A. alleges that Jeremy had an “accomplice” on one occasion and, on the other, used an “intoxicating…anesthetic” substance on another victim. If convicted of either assault, Jeremy could be required to register as a sex offender.
He also is accused of forcibly raping a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019.
They’re asking for $6.6 million bail, which is a lot. Ron has consistently denied these allegations over the years, having said in 2017 “These allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse. I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of ‘groping.’ I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this.”
Well, that’s not true anymore, is it?
If I were to tell you that Mel Gibson has said something antisemitic, I imagine your response would be along the lines of “No shit, everyone knows that. They even did a South Park about it.” I think Mel Gibson has mostly coasted on the fact that his racist outbursts came when he was drunk, but Winona Ryder gave The Sunday Times an indication of what he was like sober and the answer is “still racist.”
“We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends. And Mel Gibson was smoking a cigar, and we’re all talking and he said to my friend, who’s gay, ‘Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’ And then something came up about Jews, and he said, ‘You’re not an oven dodger, are you?’”
He sounds charming, doesn’t he?
So, is Mel Gibson next for a cancellation? I mean, he is the top trending topic on Twitter because of this.
It seems unlikely.
These aren’t exactly new allegations against Gibson. Everyone knows that he’s a crazy, racist, homophobic piece of shit already.
The main thing we’re learning about cancel culture is that you can really only cancel people who have no actual power. If you’re a nobody who makes a joke people wrongly assume is racist, you can end up with your life derailed for years. But if you’re Louis CK, you can still pack clubs and stadiums. If you’re Mel Gibson, you can still make movies.
Most people don’t really care if celebrities are bad people. We kind of assume even the good ones are bad people. You like music? The people who make it have all been up to some shady shit. I haven’t kept up on all the allegations against Chris D’Elia, but even in the worst-case scenario he didn’t do anything David Bowie didn’t.
So sure, Mel Gibson is a shitty person, but do you really want to never watch Lethal Weapon again to change some shit you can’t change anyway?

In Farrah Abraham's latest bids for attention, she has done everything up to and including smack her daughter while wielding a vibrator.
Now, she is demanding attention, threatening to show increasing amounts of skin until she gets it.
Farrah Abraham is no stranger to showing her body.
We don't just mean her sex work, from masturbating on camera to doing full-on porn.
She loves to flaunt her body in barely-there bikinis, including this one.
Wearing a bubblegum bikini, she is putting fear into the hearts of her followers.
Sophia is of course right there in the pool while her mother is demanding attention.
Spraying herself on camera - while some wonder if Sophia is holding the camera - Farrah is trying to reenact her concept of "sexy."
To make matters worse, Farrah isn't posting this on a personal account.
Instead, she is posting it to the TikTok account that she and Sophia share.
While plenty of Sophia's peers have (with supervision, since she's not a teen yet) their own Tiktok accounts, Sophia has to share one.
Worse, she has to share one with her mother.
Imagine trying to get a friend to check out a video that you made.
Then imagine realizing that your friend might see your mom doing this:
On the positive side ... we guess that Sophia doesn't actually have any peers or classmates to see that.
Wait, that's not a positive side.
Sophia's whole world revolves around Farrah. It's an atrocity if we're being perfectly honest here.
The bubblegum bikini shenanigans are not all that Farrah has gotten up to, however.
The former MTV and CamSoda star has also decided to launch a "meditation app."
Fans cannot decide for themselves whether this is real or fake.
In a shaky, oddly edited video, Farrah drones about self care.
Folks, I'm no audiophile, but I have to agree with the fans who are saying that it sounds like she just recorded the audio on her phone.
The fact that Farrah feels qualified to do any kind of guided meditation is laughable enough.
But then, this is Farrah.
She feels qualified for anything and everything.
She is the walking opposite of Imposter Syndrome.
Farrah's disconnection from reality cannot be passed on to others, however. She cannot disconnect you from your problems as if my magic.
The celebrity's recent behavior on TikTok and Instagram has been especially atrocious, perhaps out of sheer boredom / a lack of better things to do.
Who's to say. But whatever the reason, the result isn't good.
For the past month, millions of Americans have joined in courageous protests from coast to coast, taking aim at racism and escalating police violence.
Farrah, instead, filmed herself yelling at protesters and bragged about calling the police on people passing below her.
To Farrah, any attention is good attention.
Of course, Sophia may be wising up to how obnoxious her mother is.
Recently, the 11-year-old tween recorded and shared a video of Mommy Dearest berating a fast food worker.
She branded Farrah as the "ultimate karen," even mocking the way that her mother name-dropped herself.
Folks, fast food workers are not paid enough to deal with your BS. Unless they stab you, be nice.
Farrah's love of attention is nothing new.
But TIkTok, a dubious app that can never fill the void left by Vine, is giving her yet another attention stream.
It sure seems like she doesn't care if people hate or love her, so long she gets a reaction.
In that respect, maybe she should consider a run for president in the not too distant future.
Famed adult film star-turned-media personality Ron Jeremy has been arrested and charged with raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth.
Jeremy is scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles County courtroom to enter a plea on Tuesday afternoon.
If convicted, the 67-year-old could be sentenced to 90 years behind bars.
According to TMZ, Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey announced that her office has charged Jeremy with three counts of forcible rape, three counts of forcible penetration by a foreign object, one count of forcible oral copulation and one count of sexual battery.
Though the charges are the result of a single investigation, they stem from four separare incidents dating back to 2014.
The first incident involves a 25-year-old woman who claims that Jeremy raped her insider her home in West Hollywood in May of 2014.
Prosecutors also allege that Jeremy sexually assaulted two women at a Los Angeles bar in 2017.
The performer allegedly raped a fourth woman at the same bar in July of 2019.
At Jeremy's arraignment thia afternoon, prosecutors are expected to request that his bail be set at $6.6 million.
This is not the first time that Jeremy has been accused of sexual misconduct.
In July of 2017, Jeremy was accused of sexual assault by a 65-year-old Washington woman who claimed that he groped her during a sage performance.
He was cleared of those charges in March.
In September of that same year, Rolling Stone published an account of Jeremy's misconduct that included allegations of sexual impropriety from more than a dozen women.
"These allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse. … I have never and would never rape anyone," Jeremy said in a statement issued in response to the article.
"All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of 'groping,'" he continued.
"I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this."
Obviously, that's soon to change.
Jeremy has not issued a statement regarding the latest charges against him.
Insiders expect that the adult film star will enter a not guilty plea at today's hearing.
We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Jennifer Lopez has partnered with GUESS? Jeans and has officially become a Guess girl in her 50th year on earth! She plays the part well, wearing a new one piece swimsuit with the brands logo across the front and letting a little side boob pop out of the sides of the suit. J.Lo knows how to work her angles play up her sexy side.
The shot looks like it was taken on the back of a boat somewhere, however J.Lo and her fiancé AROD are now longer living in Miami and have moved back to their home in LA. I guess the Florida summer heat was too much for Jenny, or they wanted to escape the COVID hotspot and hide out in sunny California!

Ever since I found out that Tom Hanks is part Portuguese I have been obsessed with the fact that Sara Sampaio sort of looks like Tom. I know it sounds crazy but I personally have never seen the two of them in the same room. I also know that Forrest Gump was a ping pong master and now that Sara revealed she too plays ping pong, my suspicions have been taken to the next level.
Here is Sara posing with her ping pong table and a set of balls as she models off some of the new pieces from Victoria’s Secret.

Kim Petras is amazing, I actually don’t know any of her songs but I’m loving this poodle party photo she just put up. Who are these poodles and why are they so gorgeous? The white one looks like a reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe, so that’s a possibility…. Either way, Kim Petras’ poodle party is something I would like to be invited to.
The tea on Kim is that one of her songwriters is apparently a predator who abuses younger gay dudes, which should totally be called out however I won’t be the one to do it, although it is gross seeing someone who’s a total creep win awards, but hey if the music sells he must be doing something right!

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Season 2 continues, with fans having more and more questions about Brittany Banks' lies about her divorce.
She's not the only one lying in that relationship, and she and Yazan are not the only couple whose relationships are already in trouble.
Reunited and it feels so good!
Jenny Slatten and Sumit are finally face to face after five long months of separation.
It was a genuinely touching reunion -- for them, and for those of us who have been watching their story since Season 1.
"This is my happiness right here," Jenny exclaims. The two are positively giddy.
But meeting up is not without its complications.
Sumit explains that his apartment is "underdeveloped" because he is trying to save as much money as possible during his divorce.
That turns out to be an understatement, as the place is a mess.
Sumit's "underdeveloped" apartment isn't just underfurnished or something -- there are things that need to be fixed, and he lacks the budget.
On the plus side, he had arranged for a sweet if surprising housewarming ceremony for Jenny's arrival.
The ceremony is sweet, and a cow -- a symbol of wealth -- is walked through the home.
But the "wealth" is still symbolic, which Sumit makes clear.
He "jokes" about how they are now in an area with a higher crime rate. We have a feeling that we will hear more about this financial strain.
Kenneth Niedermeier and Armando Rubio's story continues.
We previously saw Armando have a difficult discussion with his sister about his sexuality.
Now, he has to have that talk with his parents, who have not been accepting in the past.
This time, Armando explains how much he has suffered while trying to live a lie. Also, being filmed for reality TV has to help.
His parents cry and embrace him.
"It's a beautiful feeling to hear [from my mom] that she loves me, that I'm her boy," Armando tells the camera. "That's what I needed in my life."
"As parents, the pride we have as Mexicans, is what hasn't let us see beyond reality that he's gay," his father explains.
Mexico legalized same-sex marriage in 2010, four years before the US did, but years after some states in the US did.
But still, just as in many countries, there are bigoted cultural undercurrents that can prevent people from living their lives.
"I feel I found happiness with Kenneth and that's where I want to be," Armando expresses.
He adds: "I hope that...you'll accept me with him."
Kenneth's father admits that he will take time to consider whether he will visit them once they move in together.
That's not great, but it's an improvement over the past, when Armando was forced back into the closet.
Meanwhile, Kenneth has yet to travel there. It's good that Armando is getting these important conversations out of the way.
A lot of fans are rooting for Kenneth and Armando.
Moving on to Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee, another familiar couple from Season 1.
Deavan, her mother Elicia, and children Drascilla and Taeyang are at the airport.
Jihoon has not been making very adult choices or meeting Deavan's expectations for what a parent and partner should be able to do.
Jihoon meets up with friends ahead of Deavan's visit, admitting to them that he "doesn't really have a real job."
(Note, some have said that TLC is playing word games with translations, and that he's saying that his job is part-time rather than salaried)
He has told Deavan that he has a job in tile, but he has just been doing deliveries -- not enough to make ends meet.
"I lied to Deavan," Jihoon explains on camera.
He says that he lied "because if I have no money, Deavan's not coming to Korea."
Yes, because it would be irresponsible to uproot your entire life without knowing if you can feed or shelter your children.
Deavan does not seem to know about his deception yet, but Jihoon's friends are already pissed.
"He's making a fool out of Korean men," Jihoon's friend tells the camera.
To be fair, people from just about every country -- including the United States -- have made their home countries look bad. That's reality TV for you.
On to Brittany Banks and Yazan Abo Horira, whose cultural differences are rearing their respective heads.
Yazan speaks to his father to discuss how soon Brittany will arrive.
His father has concerns, and Yazan is happy to put him at ease ... by lying.
His dad's main concern is whether Brittany will convert to Islam, which she has said that she will not do. She is not religious.
Yazan assures his dad that Brittany will wear a hijab, which Brittany has also said that she does not plan on doing.
(Notably, not all Muslim women wear hijabs, and there are many types of coverings, but Brittany has no plans to convert)
Yazan and Brittany very sweetly embrace when they meet at the airport. He has even brought her a bouquet.
But Brittany shows the 90 Day Fiance production crew that she has brought with her a bottle of alcohol.
Yazan sees it and flips out, yelling "F--k you, f--k the Brittany. I am so stupid," as he climbs into his car. Yikes.
He has told Brittany that she cannot drink in Jordan ... which is not strictly true.
It's not illegal, some restaurants serve alcohol, and there are even bars in major cities.
But alcohol is not permitted in Islam, which means that Brittany drinking flies in the face of the lies that Yazan has told his father ... and himself.
"I've never seen him act like that and it was scary to me," Brittany admits. "I'm not proud of his behavior at all. I'm actually very disappointed."
"This is exactly what my parents warned me about," Yazan complains in the mean time.
He accuses: "Brittany either doesn't understand or doesn't care about the traditions or the country I live in."
"Of course I respect his culture and his choices but at the same time I am not Muslim," Brittany explains.
For example, she is not asking that he drink, just that he respect her choice.
"It reminded me of the way my ex behaves," she admits, "and so if he's going to behave like my ex then I don't want anything to do with him."
Ariela is packing up for her permanent move to Ethiopia.
(Though we should note that 90 Day Fiance blogger John Yates has said that this storyline doesn't seem to be as genuine as some others)
Her mom is making sure that she packs medical supplies for eventually giving birth, including an epidural kit.
Ariela notes that this is a bittersweet move, admitting that she feels sad to say goodbye.
"The sadness comes with happiness too," her mom tells her.
"Hopefully when we get to the end of this journey," she says to Ariela, "there will be happiness on the other side."
Liz Hurley is still amazing looking, despite being as old as she is. Her pictures, that are often taken by her trans son, or would it be trans daughter, are usually the perfect level of racy, once you get past the creepy aspect, because I am sure none of us would want to be posing our moms in erotic half naked poses.
This was posted on the same day that Damien Hurley’s biological father, who was battled Liz Hurley on paternity back in the 90s, jumped off a 27 floor building in Century City. Which makes this photo all the darker.
Steve Bing was a polarizing character in the 90s, when he inherited 600 million dollars and decided to go Hollywood. He produced and was involved in numerous movies and fathered two babies, including Damien which he denied, even though knocking up Liz Hurley would in theory be a huge accomplishment, just look at her now as you remember her then!

Amber Portwood Flips OUT at 90 Day Fiance Comparison: I’m Not as Bad an Abuser as Geoffrey Paschel! I Was Abused Too!
As soon as fans started asking if Dimitri Garcia was moving to the US for Amber Portwood, they had to know that comparisons were coming.
Sure enough, a Teen Mom blog made some joking comparisons between Teen Mom couples and 90 Day Fiance pairs.
That may sound harmless ... but when Amber saw it, she lost her entire mind.
She posted rant after rant.
One of the issues may have been that she was compared to Geoffrey Paschel, the accused rapist and wifebeater.
But Amber's comments, now-deleted but thankfully captured by the good folks at The Ashley, show that this wasn't her only issue.
The most serious part of Amber's series of rants is when she describes abuse that she herself has suffered.
Take a look for yourself:
1. Here is the post that launched it all
2. Briefly ...
4. Amber flipped out at the comparison
5. Dimitri didn't get it either
6. Amber apologized to Dimitri
There are a lot of sexual misconduct allegations flying around over the past week or so and they run the gamut of believability. On the low end of that scale is a little flurry of anonymous social media allegations against the stars of Riverdale, specifically KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, and Lili Reinhart. The trio is reportedly looking into suing the people making the accusations if they can find them, and two of the accounts making allegations have already been deleted or suspended.
Sprouse responded to the allegations on Twitter.
Earlier today myself and three other cast mates were falsely accused of sexual offense by anonymous accounts on twitter. I take these accusations very seriously, and will be working with the right teams to get to the root of it. (1)

Earlier today myself and three other cast mates were falsely accused of sexual offense by anonymous accounts on twitter. I take these accusations very seriously, and will be working with the right teams to get to the root of it.
False accusations do tremendous damage to victims of actual assault. Furthermore, I would never seek to silence anybody. I encourage that people look into the accusations themselves, as the events detailed were factually untrue.
This seems to be the latest claim in a series of incidents seeking to baselessly cancel my cast mates and me.
There is something to what he’s saying as Twitter users have pointed out all the tweets making these allegations, from different users had the exact same geolocation data.
more proofs: All the tweets of acussations against Riverdale Cast are from the same location. pic.twitter.com/3aSUITeX4s
— anto | hws (@sprousecabello) June 21, 2020
Reinhart also responded, saying “I have always taken sexual assault allegations seriously. But it was proven that this account was created specifically to create false stories about me and my cast. I can’t think of something more twisted than lying about sexual assault. ”
KJ Apa didn’t even bother to dignify the accusations with a response.

When I was a young boy, my dad took me to the movies to see Batman. And maybe the coolest thing I’d seen in my life to that point was Batman holding a crook over a ledge and they guy squeals out “What are you?” and Batman says “I’m Batman.” I felt like, for a second, Batman was real and he was Michael Keaton.
We may get to experience that again because Variety reported that Keaton is in early talks to play Batman again in the apparently still in production Ezra Miller Flash film.
Variety didn’t really have any other details aside from that Pattinson was obviously still playing Batman in The Batman.
My first question is why does DC keep casting these tiny little twinks to play Barry Allen? He’s not a small dude in the comics, he has basically the same build as Batman and Superman and yet he’s being played by two actors who look like they weigh 120 pounds standing on each others’ shoulders.
But what is going on in The Flash that they need another Batman? Keaton’s Batman’s world (Earth-89) was destroyed in this year’s Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths so it seems strange to bring it back already since Ezra Miller was also in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
I’m guessing there’s going to be a multiverse aspect to The Flash, since we already met the Batman of Flash’s Earth. Or there’s a time-travel aspect and Michael Keaton is an older version of Ben Affleck’s Batman from Justice League. Flash can run fast enough to travel between dimensions and through time, so either is possible, and it’s probably a great idea to really introduce the character to a movie-going audience by making the plot as impenetrable as possible.
I know it sounds like that was sarcastic, but does anyone know what the hell actually went on in Avengers: Endgame? Making movies people understand is clearly a chump’s game.

It’s something that defies logic, but in a way, giant tech monopolies seem to benefit consumers at times. It obviously doesn’t overall, especially in the long term. The reason it appears to, though, is that competitors to industry leaders will often try to compete with ill-conceived exclusivity contracts.
Think about how your favorite network shows keep leaving Netflix. Friends, The Office, 30 Rock… all gone. Why? Other streaming services wanted to use them to bolster their own libraries so offered large amounts of money for the exclusive rights to them, or simply let the rights they own revert from Netflix the way Disney did with all of their shows. It’s annoying and now you have to get a dozen streaming services to watch the shows that all used to be on Netflix. Or you have to download a dozen launchers because a few big games got big checks to be on platforms other than Steam. Or you’re buying three video game consoles every generation to get some exclusive games.
Signing big exclusive contracts doesn’t always work the way you want it to, though. Friends didn’t lead to HBO Max having an explosive first week, it’s still not even available on the two biggest streaming devices. And it really didn’t work out for Mixer, Microsoft’s live-streaming platform, which the company just announced was being shut down.
Less than a year ago Microsoft paid Twitch star Ninja a reported $20-30 million to exclusively stream on Mixer, and they signed a number of other high-profile e-sports streamers to the platform. Before leaving for Mixer, Ninja had about 14 million subscribers on Twitch, and only about a million followed him to his new platform.
Just like people found other shows to watch on Netflix after they lost Friends and people found other streamers to watch on Twitch after Ninja left. Now he and the other streamers that got big Microsoft paydays will be free to go elsewhere or just sit around and enjoy their millions.
The whole ordeal kind of reminds me of the WCW vs the WWF Monday night wars in the 90s, with Mixer being the WCW. Microsoft just threw money at big stars from other platforms and assumed that it would bring in viewers and money. It didn’t work for Ted Turner and it didn’t work for Microsoft.
