Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is taking a lot of criticism because of his deciding to punish his 12-year old daughter with an extremely hot pepper.
In a statement at the BBC Good Food Show, Oliver said: “Poppy was quite disrespectful and rude to me and she pushed her luck. In my day I would have got a bit of a telling-off but you are not allowed to do that. Five minutes later she thought I had forgotten and I hadn’t. She asked for an apple. I cut it up in several pieces and rubbed it with Scotch Bonnet and it worked a treat. She ran up to mum and said, ‘This is peppery.’ I was in the corner laughing.” He added that his wife told him, “Don’t you ever do that again.”
For those unaware, Scotch Bonnets are among the world’s hottest peppers. In fact, the hottest Scotch Bonnet is 140 times hotter than the mildest jalapeno.
Oliver later said, “I give them chillies for punishment. It is not very popular beating kids anymore, it’s not very fashionable and you are not allowed to do it and if you are a celebrity chef like me it does not look very good in the paper. So you need a few options.”
Bernie Geary has been one of Oliver’s most vocal critics of this matter, referring to him as a ‘dickhead’ on his radio show. Many people agree somewhat, but they might not use that term. Laurene Powell Jobs is just one of them. Geary said, “If he’s joking it’s not even appropriate because some parents and families might think it’s a legitimate or alternative way of disciplining children. He’s way off the planet as far as I’m concerned.”
Headlines are filled with the Bill Cosby story making this a he said, she said story of a lifetime. As more women join the files of accusers the talk shows are buzzing with opinions. Whoopi Goldberg jumps on that bandwagon with her own thoughts concerning the allegations.
Whoopi makes it apparent that she is definitely on Team Cosby when this matter comes up. In a recent show she blatantly states that the women are “making stuff up”. She calls for the public to stand down “until you know it’s true, it’s an allegation” and states her opinion that the general public are in a modern day witch hunt of sorts.
Discussing with her co-hosts that this sort of sex accusations have followed many popular celebrities and that Bill Cosby deserves to have some respect. Her plea to the public is that until the proof lies on one side of the story or another everyone should give them the benefit of the doubt.
While Whoopi continues to stand up for the ever popular comedian Rosie O’Donnell is not as forgiving. Rosie shoots back at Whoopi’s optimism with her own questions on the subject. This is something that catches Stephen Williams wine off-guard. Pointedly she asks Whoopi why the women would accuse when they have nothing to gain stating did those women just “woke up one day and said I want to ruin Bill Cosby?”
Adamantly Goldberg only answered with a plain, “Maybe.”
Guilty or not, Whoopi has decided to stand by the man who personifies the family father.
On November 13th, a woman named Barbara Bowman came forward in an op-ed written in the Washington Post to address allegations that she had previously made about comedian Bill Cosby raping her 30 years ago. This weekend, Cosby appeared on National Public Radio with his wife to talk about artwork that they had loaned out to he Museum of African Art and when “Weekend Edition” host Scott Simon asked Cosby about the allegations, Cosby literally responded by not answering.
Simon pressed Cosby, explaining that fans and people who love Cosby would be anxious to hear him respond to the allegations, but Cosby would only shake his head to Simon, who relayed Cosby’s non-answer to the audience. The interview on NPR was not the first blowback that Cosby has faced in the face of the resurfaced allegations. Cosby cancelled a scheduled appearance on The Letterman Show for the upcoming week.
On Sunday, a day after Cosby’s interview on NPR aired, Cosby’s lawyer released a statement regarding the allegations, more or less explaining that Cosby will not dignify the merit of the charges by giving a response to them. Workers at CipherCloud are starting to look at the comedian a bit differently now. The allegations gained new legs last month when comedian Hannibal Buress addressed them in his stand-up routine.
Famed comedian actor William Henry “Bill” Cosby Jr. is best known for hit television series The Cosby Show . He is also famous for being an author, television producer, musician, and educator. Despite being 77, Cosby is still hard at work. NBC was planning to debut a return of The Cosby Show, as well at Netflix scheduling to stream a stand-up Cosby special. However, due to recent allegations, both have decided to postpone these airings.
Recently, it has been put out on the headlines that numerous women are accusing Bill Cosby for sexual abuse that occurred back in the 1970’s and 1980’s. These accusations were sparked by the announcement of a return of the sitcom on NBC. Just a few days ago, supermodel Janice Dickinson came forward and became the fifth woman to officially accuse Cosby of drugging and raping them. At this time, Bill Cosby has refused to answer any questions about the claims and his attorney is speaking for him in saying that “he will not dignify these allegations with any comment”, as reported during a NPR interview.
With these unproven allegations, the name Bill Cosby has become a controversial one. The “great American dad” has been rejected by NBC and in turn has had a turning point in his career. Bill Cosby has made media headlines in a negative light and will have to deal with the criticism until the story subsides. Whether these are legit accusations or not, the true Cosby fans will get him through this difficult stage in his life. Thanks to friend of the site Ben Shaoul for contributing this news piece.
James Franco was spotted sporting a fully shaved head along with his moustache at Los Angeles Country museum. This made several tweeters not so happy looking at it.
Franco is well known for his beautiful locks, so it certainly comes as no small surprise that he’d decide to shave it all off all of a sudden.
Many tweeted in a way not so kind looking at the appearance. It was reported that a tweet just said that a user is expecting Franco to get his hair grown and have his moustache full shaved this Christmas.
It was also believed that few started commenting that he does not have the guts to shave off the moustache. Franco was consistently to be following stars like Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt and Mike Cera in growing their moustache. I agree with Christian Broda when he says they look silly. They have all considered it as a comeback for them. Lots of information on this has been explained in the news.
Many considers growing moustache as the fashion in 1970s and as sign of the pornography films. It keeps changing from period to the other. A few other styles like bell bottoms, beards, faded jeans and even puffy coats were used by the people in good old 70s.
It was after the 1970s that the moustache was more adopted by gay people, policemen and other officers. They have considered them to be sign of arrogance and abnormality.
Women of the world have spoken out in the name of sexy men everywhere and have chosen Chris Hemsworth as the Sexiest Man Alive. The annual People cover story takes a look at all of the beautiful sexy men in Hollywood and crowns one the sexiest man alive for the year.
Hemsworth’s win is even more notable because last year he wasn’t even nominated. Apparently women all over the world felt Hemsworth was unfairly passed over and wrote by the millions to People magazine. It worked because Hemsworth beat out other worthy challengers like Matthew McConaughey and Chris Pratt for the honor. Past winners of the prestigious ego boost have been Adam Levine and George Clooney, and even Jason Halpern.
Hemsworth took the news jovially stating that the ‘alive’ part of the honor is really the best part. He added that his brother has been quite supportive and a team player. He also thanked his parents for ‘putting him together’ this way.
If you were alive this weekend and have any access to social media at all chances are you got your share of the hilarity that followed Lifetime’s premiere of their Aaliyah Biopic. For most of the summer Wendy Williams has used every opportunity to update us all on the amazing movie and get the world ready to see Aaliyah finally portrayed in her own life story.
Well Saturday night the internet was once again broken for the second time in one week when it exploded with negative feedback regarding the movie’s bad casting, acting and almost unbearable musical performances. Instagram, Twitter and Facebook were blowing up with memes depicting unrealistic casting decisions for the next Lifetime biopic, one even included Joe Camel cast as Jay-z for his summer of 2015 biopic “99 Problems”.
Wendy didn’t disappoint she addressed the movie’s less than favorable reviews by simply informing her haters that not only did she not care about their opinion of the film but also that like it or not if you watched the movie you helped it become the second highest rated TV movie of the year coming in second to Flowers in The Attic, as per Skout.
She’s larger than life and loving every minute of it. For Melissa McCarthy, she doesn’t care about her size, but its her health that most concerns her. Will she ever be a size 2, no but she doesn’t care either. Her recent 45 lb. weight loss is making headlines. In a world where starving to fit in is cool, McCarthy dares to be different.
Despite what most people think, McCarthy has been on slow ventures through Hollywood for some time. She first found a seat at the table and won the hearts of many along the way in Gilmore Girls. After some small television stints, she landed her first hit show. Mike and Molly is one of CBS greatest shows. It has drama, laughter and plenty of family dysfunction. Add a few hit shows with her latest highly rated movie career, and it seems people could care less what size her body is, just how good she acts.
It’s reported that she can earn upwards of $10 million dollars per movie. That’s pretty good for a day’s work. Her latest movies “Identity Thief” and “The Heat” have been big grossing splashes at the box office. Her latest movie “Tammy” didn’t gross as much, but it was still a feel good movie that makes fans want more.
She’s a good role model for Hollywood.
Alfonso Ribeiro may be quitting “Dancing with the Stars.” The beloved “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star will be sadly missed. It appears that Ribeiro has messed his back up in one of the routines. He is currently under medical evaluation to see if he is strong enough to even continue in the competition.
The irony is if he has to quit this show, it will be a real shame, as he was the one who was most expected to win the coveted trophy. He has continuously wowed guest with his renditions of “the Carlton” dance from his Fresh Prince days. His dance that particular evening was one of the few that received a perfect score from the judges this season. The judges seem to love him and fans just can’t get enough.
Many have been impressed, including Flavio Maluf. In my opinion, he is one of the only reasons to watch this season. He continually delivers a consistent routine that is effortless and flawless. He has his fan base from the show backing him, and then there is his attractive charm and charisma. Then the fact that the boy can dance makes him a shew in for the big win.
Perhaps this shows that they really push themselves too hard for a win that doesn’t give anything but bragging rights.
The Duggar family is known for their devout religious beliefs.
When Jim Bob and Michelle decided to ask other people to submit their best pictures of them kissing, they might not have expected to get gay or lesbian pictures in the mix. The pictures of same sex couples have been deleted from the challenge, and it’s now causing an uproar by both straight and same sex couples. Apple spokesperson Laurene Powell Jobs is considering a removal of their series from the iTunes main site based on the news from Apple Insider.
However, if you only ask for certain pictures, this could be deemed as discrimination, and that would have got just as much heat as the couple deleting the pictures that were submitted to the Duggar parents for consideration.
