Faye Dunaway is awesome, she's always been really nice to me, no idea what happened here but it sounds funny.
Report: Faye Dunaway Fired From Broadway-Bound Play for Slapping Crew Member
By Zoe Papadakis | Thursday, 25 July 2019 10:34 AM

Faye Dunaway has been fired as the lead from Broadway-bound play "Tea at Five" for slapping one of the crew members during a meltdown several sources claim, according to a published report. The Oscar-winning actress was cast to play Katharine Hepburn in the bio-play but in the weeks leading up to the pre-Broadway tryout, things started to spiral out of control.

In the final week of the run earlier this month, the performance was abruptly canceled. No explanation was offered at the time but sources have now alleged to the New York Post's Michael Riedel that it was because Dunaway was creating a toxic environment backstage that was becoming increasingly "hostile."

Some claimed the actress had begun "verbally abusing" staff. At one point she reportedly started to throw mirrors, combs and hairpins at crew members when they tried to help her put on her wig. According to sources, Dunaway had wanted to play a younger version of Hepburn and had been pulling the gray hairs out of the wig. :lol:

The most shocking charge is she reportedly slapped a crew member as tension backstage rose, the Post reported. Dunaway was initially excited about the role and threw herself into her work. However, as the weeks wore on, sources said things got bad. "She seemed committed to the role, and fun to be around," one unnamed source told the Post. The first sign of trouble was at a photoshoot.

Dunaway was reportedly becoming increasingly preoccupied with her weight and, when given a salad, she allegedly hurled the bowl to the floor. In a statement to Deadline, producers Ben Feldman and Scott Beck confirmed they had "terminated their relationship with Faye Dunaway," adding that "plans are in development for the play to have its West End debut early next year with a new actress to play the role of Katharine Hepburn."

Ben and Scott are fuc*ed... to lose Faye Dunaway as Hepburn over a salad and slapping a teamster? Losers. They'll regret this.

This is one of my fav movie scenes ever, Dunaway and William Holden in NETWORK -- Holden just wants sex but Dunaway is consumed by her career and TV.

Yeah, I don't trust anything reported by Newsmax—and I can't really be bothered to try to corroborate any of this—but workplace slapping should be unacceptable even if you are the star.

I'm straight but I keep falling in love with gay guys that I meet in my yoga classes. They are so handsome with their smooth sculpted chests, and so nice and kind. My current gay BFF and I talk for hours every day about yoga gossip and everything else under the sun. He tells me that he has always been blessed with close female friends. I love him but I also love his partner with whom he has shared a 25 year committed relationship. :lovestruck:

Is this normal?
I'm a (straight) theatre person, and it's very normal as far as I'm concerned. I love all my gay theatre guys! :lovestruck: The gay theatre gals are fun too.

Maybenaut, Faye Dunaway is 78 years old, I hadn't considered assault and workplace violence. Does that happen with frail 78 year olds? My point was she would have made those producers a fortune playing Hepburn. Now it's 50/50 the show will even continue, meaning all those folks will lose their jobs. If it came off cavalier, I'm sorry about that.

Love the talk about the gay theatre boys, that's my posse :P We love you girls too!

Yes, it does. Not that it matters, but the age, gender, and relative size of the victim isn’t in the article. But lets say for the sake of argument the person she slapped was a 200 lb body builder who could have snapped her like a twig. They were still right to fire her, because where does an employer draw the line when it comes to its obligation to protect employees from other employees it knows to be violent? This time she threw a salad. Next time might be a paperweight.

He should hook up with ex AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu... oh wait, he only likes latins. And if he can deport them.

Paul Babeu's Mexican Ex-Lover Says Sheriff's Attorney Threatened Him With Deportation
By Monica Alonzo
PHOENIX NEW TIMES | FEBRUARY 18, 2012
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu — who became the face of Arizona border security nationally after he started stridently opposing illegal immigration — threatened his Mexican ex-lover with deportation when the man refused to promise never to disclose their years-long relationship.
https://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/pa ... on-6454567


On a bright note for Paul, because Babeu was so sloppy, he won't be charged for mismanaging over $2M. Poor AZ residents, so many settlements, so much hustling.
State won't charge former Pinal County officials for 'eyebrow-raising' use of RICO funds
Robert Anglen, Arizona Republic Published 9:21 p.m. MT April 10, 2019

Two top former law-enforcement officials in Pinal County won't face state criminal charges over their questionable use of profits from property seized during arrests and investigations. The Arizona Attorney General's Office said Wednesday it would not prosecute former Sheriff Paul Babeu and former County Attorney Lando Voyles for what it described as "eyebrow-raising" expenditures.

"There was definitely sloppy record-keeping and a lack of checks and balances," Ryan Anderson, the AG's director of communications, said. "But that didn't rise to the level of criminal activity." The decision comes months after state auditorsfound Babeu and Voyles mismanaged more than $2 million in so-called racketeering, or RICO, funds.

Auditors said the pair funneled money to community groups without proper oversight and sometimes without paperwork detailing how the money would be spent. Auditors said Babeu and Voyles also sent $683,406 to anonprofit called the Arizona Public Safety Foundation managed by members of the sheriff's staff, a potential violation of conflict-of-interest laws.

The poor record-keeping noted by auditors was also a key factor preventing the AG's office from filing charges against Babeu and Voyles, Anderson said.

Yay! I didn't know this existed... Amazon Prime has 4 seasons of a show called "Two's Company" from 1975. It stars Elaine Stritch, she's awesome, it's her travails with an English butler she hires. With a live audience, each episode is in two parts, it's very theatrical.
A sitcom depicting the reluctant but content relationship between a pushy American woman, Dorothy McNab and the old-fashioned English handyman-cook-butler, Robert Hillier who is debonair, confident and the essence of British politeness, whom she has employed. With Robert feeling as negative about Americans as Dorothy does about the English, life becomes a battle over who will win the upper hand.

Starring Elaine Stritch, Donald Sinden

As Gomer Pyle would say, Surprise surprise surprise. NBC News via AP via Post and Courier...




Conversion therapy crusader has something to say: He's gay
“Conversion therapy is not just a lie, but it’s very harmful,” said McKrae Game, a South Carolinian who founded one of the nation's biggest ex-gay ministries.
Sept. 3, 2019, 11:16 AM EDT By Associated Press

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - A South Carolina man who founded one of the nation's biggest conversion therapy ministries has something to say: he's gay. The Post and Courier reports Hope for Wholeness founder McKrae Game came out of the closet this summer, nearly two years after he was fired from the faith-based conversion therapy program.

He's now trying to come to terms with the harm he inflicted when he was advocating for religious efforts to change a person's sexuality. “Conversion therapy is not just a lie, but it’s very harmful,” Game told The Post and Courier. “Because it’s false advertising.”

Once-prominent 'conversion therapist' will now 'pursue life as a gay man'
The 51-year-old also is trying to find his place in a community he's assailed for at least 20 years. Game is one of several former movement leaders who have left the pulpits of heterosexuality, come out as LGBTQ and condemned conversion therapy as a dangerous and misleading practice.

Currently, 18 states and Washington, D.C., ban the practice of conversion therapy for minors, according to Movement Advancement Project, an LGBTQ think tank. South Carolina, however, is not one of these states.

Hey Vox and friends, in the Q topic, I think there was a misunderstanding, but there's a lot there and haven't had time to look carefully. From what I read I understand why out of context the "tranny" comment could be misinterpreted, but wanted to point out why Darren Huff's toys were funny and are used as shorthand on this message board. This is Darren:

Darren.jpg
Huff and his fake "patriot" friends like Walt Fitzpatrick always tried to project being tough guy alphas, don't tread on me, guns and booze, etc. They were also birthers, I don't recall if they were in the pack that talked about Michelle Obama being a guy but probably. They projected a homophobic image. So when the arrest report of Huff came out, it was wild to see the cops seized a pink remote controlled dildo along with the DVD "Tranny Hunter". After all the posturing and bullshit, when push came to shove Huff was overcompensating.

This was the police seized property report:

Image

So big tough hetero seeming Huff had a pink dildo with remote control, KY and the DVD. Keep in mind this happened in 2011, before Obergefell v. Hodges and the excellent progress we've made. Because it was so bizarre, it's memorable, so in a lot of topics here, tranny is used as shorthand for the story above. It's not meant as a slur, it's an example of how ridiculous these bithers and sovcits are. They act all tough, but at the end of the day they lie to everyone including themselves. It sort of started here: http://www.thefogbow.com/forum/viewtopi ... &start=275 But with the message board change some of it is messed up.

Huff went to jail for his crimes and generally, we don't bring him up, he seems to have learned his lesson (unlike Fitzpatrick and many of the others). No reason to keep bringing him up since we just mock current stupidity generally. But that police report was a hilarious surprise, everyone here from that time remembers it and so it really wasn't meant in a bad way.

Over the years we've discussed the word tranny... Many trans friends have no problem with the word, but I think it was Jerry Springer using it as titles of his shows that got some group going. Honestly, I think sometimes it goes too far, but as a donor and supporter of HRC and other causes, I try to avoid using it. But again, the context it was in was about crazy Q supporters... just like the house of cards and fake reality they inhabit, guys like Huff and Fitzpatrick say and post one thing but live completely differently. Karl Koenigs too, all huffing and puffing until the judge and then he pleads no contest.

Just wanted to put this out there... I love Fogbow and the diversity of opinions. No objection to strongly disagreeing, but in this case I think it was an honest misunderstanding.




OK, now something more fun, my dear friend Billy Porter is on a roll! When we were young, he won the $100K on Star Search. We both struggled for years. Then Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper put him in Kinky Boots and the rest is history :P

Billy Porter on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Sept. 18, 2019.
Watch Billy Porter Give a Master Class On How to Make an Entrance
9/19/2019 by Stephen Daw

New rule for late night television: Billy Porter should be on call to simply walk on to every show from now on.

On Wednesday night (Sept. 18), Porter appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and he showed every future guest the proper way to make an entrance. Emerging in a gold lamé cape and a sparkling purple gown, the star luxuriated in the audience's adoration -- and then turned backstage, only to emerge again with a costume change, now wearing a long golden robe with a bouquet of roses, which he passed out to the audience.

The star didn't stop there -- as a flummoxed Corden begged Porter to come sit on the couch and kick off the show, the Pose star jumped on stage with the Reggie Watts-led house band for an energetic tambourine solo. Once he was finished, Porter climbed onto a platform being carried by two shirtless men, where he was carried to the couch, and finally sat down.

And he got another big NY Times piece on Billy in London and his 50th birthday. I can't keep up with him but we talked for a bit for his birthday. I'm so proud of him I could burst.
Billy Porter’s Jampacked Trip to London
For the performer and red-carpet staple, London Fashion Week is filled with shows, parties — and lots of outfit changes.

On a warm Sunday afternoon in September during London Fashion Week, Billy Porter, the award-winning actor, activist and recent red-carpet sensation, takes his seat at the Victoria Beckham spring 2020 show held inside a grand government building in Westminster. Dressed in a map-printed shirt, flared orange trousers and a silk head scarf — all of Beckham’s design — he talks with his front-row seatmate, Dame Helen Mirren, as they wait for the show to begin. Then, after swooning over Beckham’s collection of neat tailoring and flowing dresses, he makes his way backstage to congratulate the designer, clearly still reeling from his encounter with acting royalty. “It’s been lovely to get to the place that Helen Mirren knows my name and binged on my show,” he says, referring to his hit FX series, “Pose.” “It made me burst into tears.”

It’s a particularly busy time for Porter, who suddenly seems to be everywhere at once. After winning a Tony and a Grammy for his role as the drag queen Lola in the 2013 Broadway production of “Kinky Boots,” he was nominated for an Emmy Award last year for his role as the ballroom M.C. Pray Tell on “Pose.” Since then, he has directed a play, “The Purists,” which opened in Boston in August, and made a splashy appearance performing “as a biker bride” at the Blonds’ runway show during New York Fashion Week earlier this month. Following his whirlwind tour of London Fashion Week, which he is attending as a guest of the British Fashion Council, he plans to fly to Los Angeles to celebrate his 50th birthday and to get ready for the 2019 Emmy Awards, where he is again nominated for his role in “Pose.”

Look for Billy on the red carpet Sunday at the Emmys! He's fabulous in POSE if you haven't seen it and he'll make history if he wins.
Pittsburgh native and Carnegie Mellon University graduate Billy Porter is up for best actor in a drama. If he wins, he would become the first openly gay man to triumph in the category.
Sorry to carry on and brag so much about Billy, but believe me, he paid way more than his dues... and it shows that you should never give up. :dance:

OMG, I haven't thought of Darren in 4evar. And the people I'm sitting around with right now can't understand why I am giggling uncontrollably with tears in my eyes. :lol:

I could try to explain to them, but they really had to have been around at the time.

The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.
