Why the Seagal Torment?

Painful issue to bring up. I've known about this for a few days but now it seems the story won't go away. To preface, I swallowed my dismay at the notion that Steven Seagal could bully female assistants into becoming his sex slaves. But now, it seems he might have killed a puppy--or one might have been killed on his set. Why must he be persecuted? Just because he had the audacity to wear a ponytail beyond 1995 and tries to be an action hero when he, like Alec Baldwin, has swallowed the mighty water buffalo. I'll fess up--here's the sad report: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/31/steven-seagal-sued-for-ki_n_943952.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000009. Sure, Steven made me wait three hours and pay 30$ for an autograph he never bothered to show up for. His music CD was refundable at least and my Nick Toscani action doll has been an excellent talisman on flights. I have to say my goodbyes and remember fondly how good his movies were. And by good, I mean terrible. And by terrible, I mean I have several of them on my shelf.

Update: Never mind about Seagal! He says he didn't do it. Yay!

Most importantly today, Cher took to Twitter to verbally banish bigots and support her son Chaz; she invited everyone to show Chaz the love on Dancing With the Stars. Wow. Maybe I will watch this season and even vote. If Cher is involved, so must we all be....

RE: water buffalo. Alec Baldwin was on Letterman Tuesday night and he's lost a lot of weight! He looks like he's ready to return to Knots Landing.

Have you read the article on the online NE that Brad Pitt is infatuated with his costar? Do you think it's overly cynical to think that this story is a deliberate ploy to garner more interest in the film?

Anonymous, you hit the nail on the head! That's why I'm not covering the Brad alleged infatuation. Plus, I'm sure the Seagal coverage is to get people to watch Lawman--a big stupid game! I'm just sad that I fall for 60% of the hype.

Don't feel bad about falling for the hype. Look how many people thought John Edwards was an upstanding guy who would have been good for the US and he might well end up doing time in federal prison.
