High-profile lesbian scandals and wrestling… that is what we have for you this week.
Hollywood Lesbian Scandal
Jodie and and new lover Cindi
Taken from New York Daily.
Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster, 45, has a new woman in her life.
According to various sources, including England’s Daily Mail, Foster dumped her long-time girlfriend Cydney Bernard for screenwriter Cindy Mort. The two apparently met on the set of Foster’s 2007 movie “The Brave One.”
Foster, 45, and Bernard, 55, had been together for 14 years and had been raising Foster’s two children. Foster, who won Best Actress Oscars for her roles in “The Accused” and “The Silence of the Lambs” has never revealed the identity of the father of her two sons, Kit (9) and Charles (6).
According to the Daily Mail, Mort, 41, was in a relationship with former “Thirtysomething” actress Melanie Mayron. The two had been raising ten-year-old twins Olivia and Miles.
The source quoted by the Daily Mail said: “Cydney had no idea their relationship was in trouble until Jodie came home one day and told her she’d fallen in love with Cindy and was moving out. Cydney is devastated.”
As for the other side of this scandal, the source says Mayron is also taking the split very hard.
“It’s not easy to be dumped for the most famous lesbian in Hollywood. It is the biggest lesbian love scandal to grip this town in years.”
While I sympathise with the women who have been dumped, I have to simultaneously marvel at how lesbians can create drama anywhere, even in Hollywood. The last time something like this happened, Ellen DeGeneres dumped Alexandra Henderson and Portia de Rossi dumped Francesca Gregorini, and as we all know, Ellen and Portia are getting married, something usually not expected out of a scandalous union like that.
Jodie and Cydney
Yeah, for those people who have been living under a rock for the past 15 years… Surprise! Jodie Foster is gay. As if you could have missed it when she thanked her “beautiful Cydney” at an award show. At the next award show, she can just swap around two letters, and thank her “beautiful Cyndey” instead, and no one will even spot the difference!
All the same… we wish Jodie Foster and Cindi Mort good luck in their new relationship, and offer a listening ear and tissues to Cydney and Melanie.
A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila II
Gelatin, stay or go, and cockroaches. That would be a good tagline for this episode of Tila Tequila, which would have been run of the mill had it not been for the Stay or Go “game”.
Of course, you know Lisa is going to win the Challenge du Jour, because in Tila’s words, “she is a beast”. In a good way, of course. Ahem. [I rest assured in the knowledge that the local authorities cannot possibly prosecute Tila for bestiality after reading this entry and taking it literally]. The real surprising thing about this challenge was that Britney was beaten by Samantha aka Glitter, who displayed a new-found beastly vengeance that is scarier than her glitter eyeshadow. Yeah, you know she’s never going to live down losing to a stripper. After winning the wrestling challenge, Lisa’s team went on a trip to Tila’s candy-store [a real one, what were you thinking?] and er… got themselves some sugar. Really, I am not making innuendoes here.
Honestly, I wonder about you guys sometimes.
In the Stay or Go game, where the contestants were asked to decide who was compatible and who was not, Glitter decided to take the moral high road and “not judge people” – which is understandable, because, you know, she’s a stripper and she must be so sick of being judged herself. Everyone voted Lisa to stay, knowing the “beast” she is, and how much of a connection she had with Tila. Almost everyone voted Bo to go home, citing a personality clash. So Lisa got immunity from elimination (oh, hi there Survivor) and Bo got a one-on-one date, during which Tila affirmed her feelings towards Bo and decided the rest of them were wrong.
At elimination, Scotty and Glitter got the boot. Scotty aka Mr Pastry-Puff-in-need-of-a-shave was told their relationship could not go beyond friendship (which I could have told her from the beginning), and Glitter was told she was too emotional to handle Tila. Oh gee, you think? She has cried at least 15 times on the show so far, often over nothing. The girl is worse than Amanda of the yesterseason – at least when Amanda talked, she did not burst into bouts of inappropriate laughter or cry over spilled glitter.
Of course, I have absolutely no idea why Jay aka Jersey is still in the running. He is loud, obnoxious, immature and idiotic. He acts like a frat boy, and if it were up to me, I’d have sent him home on the first day. I predicted Kristy to get the boot last week, because I thought the way she was not really spending any time with Tila, there was not much hope for her, but this week, she did. Anyway I like her because she looks like a blonde version of Brandi.
Predictions for next week: Jay and George. George is hanging on by a slim thread, as he is not fighting enough and showing that he is more than just a nice guy with no spice. I definitely like Lisa, and I think she is going all the way to the top 3.
