Catching up with all the sex creep news — and there’s a whole lot of sex creep news.

It’s Tuesday, and we’ve suffered a second horrific mass shooting in less than a week. I have so many thoughts and feelings — mostly fury at how stubbornly ineffectual our country is and cynical dread that this will change absolutely nothing — and I don’t have the words yet. So here’s a handful of a baby goat.

All Other TV News

John Oliver tore Meghan McCain a new asshole on Sunday for brushing off Trump calling COVID-19 “China Virus” and “Kung Flu,” and then turning around and doing performative lip service about racism against Asians following the Atlanta shootings. She’s sorry, y’all.

We have a title for American Horror Story‘s 10th season:

Y’all were excited about some Falcon and the Winter Soldier, weren’t you?

Turns out viewers are turned off by bullies.

LOL, Rudy Guiliani tried to get the Borat crew arrested for “extortion,” and the crew had to hide tapes in their pants to protect the footage.

Why Brendan Fraser was screaming “BEDAZZLED!” during the goodnight on a Saturday Night Live Rob Lowe hosted.

Happy 15th anniversary, Real Housewives shows!

Bethenny Frankel is FINALLY divorced after an 8-year court battle. She’s been trying to divorce this asshole for more than half of the time Real Housewives have existed.

Someone is writing a book about The Apprentice five years too late.

People are still pissed that Dr. Oz is hosting Jeopardy! this week.

Do not hold your breath for an “Ayer” cut of Suicide Squad. (Of course, they said the Snyder cut of Justice League would never happen, too, so …)

Get better soon, Chevy Chase, you old crank.


It turns out sex monsters don’t take vacations from being sex monsters. 

14 lawsuits have been filed against Houston Texans quarterback, Deshaun Watson, accusing him of sexual assault, and according to lawyer Tony Buzbee, as many as 22 women have similar stories. The lawsuits involve massage therapists who claim Watson exposed himself, forced them to touch him, and groped them. Watson denies all the accusations and has blamed COVID in a roundabout way. The NFL is investigating.

Armie Hammer is being investigated for rape in a 2017 incident by the Los Angeles Police Department. A wild Vanity Fair piece about Hammer and his insanely rich and crazy family was published a week before this news broke. It’s … a whole lot.

Thomas Middleditch, the star of Silicon Valley and now CBS’s B Positive, has been accused by multiple women of groping them at a now-closed Hollywood club.

Harding said Middleditch made lewd sexual overtures toward her and her girlfriend. She turned him down, but he kept pursuing her, groping her in front of her friends and several employees, including the club’s operations manager, Kate Morgan.

Morgan said she asked her bosses to kick Middleditch out and ban him, but they didn’t seem to take it seriously.

“I felt like they dismissed it,” she said. “I told Adam that he needed to listen, that this was not OK.”

Harding has Instagram direct messages from Middleditch, seen by The Times, saying, “Hannah I had no idea my actions were that weird for you … I know you probably want to just put me on blast as a monster … I don’t expect you to want to be my friend or anything … I am so ashamed I made you uncomfortable.”

Middleditch had raised some eyebrows back in 2019 when he gave an interview to Playboy, revealing that he and his wife were swingers, though the way he presented it sounded like he pressured his wife into the lifestyle: “To her credit, instead of saying ‘F*** you, I’m out,’ she was like, ‘Let’s figure this out.’ To be honest, swinging has saved our marriage.” Spoiler alert: his wife filed for divorce 9 months later.

A year before that, he made some questionable comments about the #MeToo movement in relation to the accusations that got his co-star TJ Miller fired from Silicon Valley:

“Like, there’s a difference between assault and just kind of strange sex. You don’t want to live in a world where it’s just so stiff that there’s no, I don’t know, something? I don’t know where I’m going with that, but I don’t really know enough about [the allegations against T.J. Miller] to comment on. Just don’t know about it, really. But it is tricky, you know. It’s weird. It’s like we live in a world where currently the climate, let’s say, is where a j’accuse will really turn your world upside down.

“I think that’s the tricky thing with all this stuff. Speaking as a guy, as a man, as a male human, it’s kind of scary, with this fervor that’s surrounding it, where an allegation can just pop up and then it’s really incumbent upon you to fervently defend your character. I’m not gonna dive into what’s real or not. I’m just saying it’s a little bit scary for a man.”

Yep! It’s definitely a scary time to be a guy. Terrifying.

One of his Silicon Valley co-stars:

We haven’t forgotten about Andrew Cuomo! A sixth accuser came to light last week — a current member of his staff. Interestingly, she wasn’t the one to report the incident, other members of his staff did. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand have called for Cuomo to resign. The New York State Assembly is opening an impeachment inquiry into Cuomo’s behavior and President Biden said Cuomo should resign and be prosecuted if investigations confirm he harassed these women.

Meanwhile, Cuomo is blaming “cancel culture.” OK, dude.

Sharon Stone has A LOT to say.

The documentary filmmakers who made Allen v. Farrow have said Woody Allen is welcome to tell his story to them anytime and denies his claim that he wasn’t given a proper chance to respond to the documentary’s allegations. Meanwhile, a local politician returned a donation Allen and his wife, Soon-Yi made because fuck off, predator.

Demi Lovato has opened up about the night she nearly died of an overdose, claiming that her drug dealer raped her and left her for dead. She also revealed that she was raped when she was 15 and a Disney star. Just heartbreaking. 

Former Nickelodeon star Alexa Nikolas claims her ex-husband, Rhye singer Michael Milosh, “groomed, sexually assaulted, and physically and sexually abused her throughout their time together.”

A woman has come forward claiming that YouTube star David Dobrik and his Vlog Squad, a group of fellow YouTubers, drugged and raped her and taped the whole thing. Dobrik has offered an apology twice now. 

SpectreVision producers have cut ties with director Richard Stanley after he was accused of domestic abuse.

Former Dr. Phil guest Danielle Bregoli detailed abuse she experienced at Turn-About Ranch, the ranch Dr. Phil sends troubled teens. A fellow Dr. Phil guest, Hannah Archuleta, accused one of the staffers of sexual assault.

This man who abruptly quit the private-equity firm he co-founded paid Jeffrey Epstein $158 million for “tax advice.” Note: Jeffrey Epstein was a college dropout with no training in tax or estate planning. NOT SUSPICIOUS IN THE LEAST.

Britney Spears’ dad says that she can end the conservatorship “at any time.” LOL, OK. BBC Two is working on a documentary of their own about this whole mess.

The NCAA came under fire when women’s basketball player Sedona Price revealed the shocking disparities between the women’s weight room and the men’s at the March Madness competition:

So they slapped together a new weight room REAL FAST:

The women reportedly also had shittier COVID tests and hotel rooms, shocking absolutely no one. These are clear violations of Title IX and someone honestly should sue.

Lawmakers in Arkansas banned all abortions for every reason except the health of the mother in an attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade. 👇

There was a minute there last week when people were SO MAD at Former President Injectible Bleach for not making any effort to encourage people to get the vaccine — especially since that asshole got the vaccine himself and didn’t tell anyone. The thinking was that he might be able to convince vaccine-reluctant Republicans to get the shot, and by not speaking out he was not just being negligent, he was also playing politics with people’s lives (again). And I get it! I look for any reason to be mad at that bloated pig, too.

But I found this story about Republican pollster Frank Luntz’s panel with a bunch of Trump voters who are skeptical about the vaccine to be insightful: the people on the panel who changed their minds about receiving the vaccine were convinced by a doctor who told them an overwhelming number of physicians have received the shot and that the vaccine was developed using 20 years of research — it didn’t just spring out of the blue last year. They were irritated by any politicization of the vaccine, including messaging using Former President Seditionist, and said their doctor or spouse would be a more convincing messenger. This is why I thought President Biden’s response to the criticism of Former President Smooth Brain, in which he said doctors and preachers would have more impact in changing skeptics’ minds was not only accurate, but it avoided further politicizing the vaccine by pitting President Biden against Former President Dickknuckle.

So, of course, in an interview with Maria Bartiromo, Former President Malignant Narcissist did come out and tell people to get the vaccine — while in the same breath telling them they didn’t have to if they didn’t want to:

“I know that you received the vaccine,” Bartiromo said, referring to news reports that emerged only after Trump was out of office. “Mrs. Trump also got the vaccine. Would you recommend to our audience that they get the vaccine, then?”

“I would,” Trump replied. “I would recommend it.”

“And,” he continued, “I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it. And a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.” The escape hatch: “But I — again, we have our freedoms, and we have to live by that. And I agree with that also. But it’s a great vaccine. It’s a safe vaccine. And it’s something that works.”

Here in Texas, all adults will be eligible for the vaccine as of Monday of next week! GO GET IT!
