  • ‘Cinderella’ Star Billy Porter Smears Ted Cruz, Greg Abbott as ‘Transphobes’

    Amazon Studios’ Cinderella star Billy Porter has attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) as “transphobes,” claiming the politicians are “anti-trans” due to their support for state policy shielding young children from sex-change drugs and procedures. At one point, he outlandishly compared Texas’ transgender directive to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. In a series of videos, Billy Porter and social media influencer Lynae Vanee engage in “Transphobe Takedowns” in which they also insult the politicians’ hair. “How do you continue to live yourself with a hairline looking like that?” Porter said about Abbott. He also...

    We have conducted an in-depth analysis of Obama-era White House visitor logs, and we have learned a good deal about the people who controversial CIA employee Eric Ciaramella met with while assigned to the White House. Ciaramella reportedly was detailed to the Obama White House in 2015 and returned to the CIA during the Trump administration in 2017. Real Clear Investigations named Ciaramella as possibly being the whistleblower whose complaint sparked impeachment proceedings against President Trump. As reported by the Examiner, Fox News’ legal analyst Gregg Jarrett indicated that a key takeaway was the “reported direct relationship” Ciaramella had with...

    “Pose” star Billy Porter is in negotiations to join Camila Cabello in Sony’s reimagined musical version of “Cinderalla.” If the deal goes through, Porter will play Cinderella’s fairy godmother. Sony had no comment. Cabello came on to the project in April with “Blockers” director Kay Cannon attached to helm and pen the script. Cabello will be involved in the music for the project, which grew out of an original idea from James Corden. The film will be produced by Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner. The new “Cinderella” will be a music-oriented version of the traditional tale of...

    "Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia would be found dead of apparent natural causes. Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara acknowledged that she pronounced Scalia dead by phone, without seeing his body. We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bed clothes were unwrinkled," said Poindexter. A pillow over his head does not sound like natural. And who pronounces a Supreme Court Justice dead over the phone. Or anyone, for that matter.

    ... I was reporting from a candidate forum in neighboring Brewster County. Officials from all three counties were in attendance. David Beebe, the justice of the peace for Precinct 1 in Presidio County, was there, too. Shortly after 1 p.m., he received a request to handle an inquest for "a dead body" back in his county. The call came from Juanita Bishop, the justice of the peace for Precinct 2, who is nominally closer, but she was at a work-related event more than 120 miles away in Fort Stockton. Beebe responded he was also far away, too, busy at the...

    Charles Perrault, author of Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella was born 388 years ago, and has been commemorated with a Google Doodle. Perrault was born in Paris in 1628, and was a lawyer before turning his hand to the written word. While the Brothers Grimm are widely credited with creating the fairy tale as we know it, Perrault actually wrote stories called Le Petit Chaperon Rouge, La Belle au bois dormant and Cendrillon a full 200 years before. In 1695, aged 67, he wrote Tales and Stories of the Past with Morals, a series of moral tales...

    FOX News - A 5-year-old Staten Island girl diagnosed with leukemia was self-conscious about her hair loss until she met a princess who looked just like her, reported. When Isabella Harvey was 3, she was diagnosed with leukemia, an aggressive cancer of the bone and blood marrow. Her mother, Pina Harvey, told ABC that at the time Isabella was too young to be bothered by the aesthetic side effects of her treatment, which included hair loss. But after nearly two years of fighting the cancer, Isabella has lost her hair again, and this time, she's more insecure about it....

    The Egyptian paper Roz Al-Youssef reported recently about an “Islamic” version of Cinderella that has been published, in which the heroine and other women wear veils and the plot is replete with Islamic motifs. The book, published by Dar Al-Yanabi’, was edited by Mas’oud Sabri, a member of Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi’s International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), and was illustrated by Rif’at Muhi Al-Din. According to Roz Al-Youssef, Cinderella in this version is portrayed as a girl who patiently bears the disasters befalling her and asks Allah to help her continue bearing them. She never says a bad word about her...

    NEWBURY, Vt., - The owner of a farm in Newbury, Vt., says drenching rains washed as many as 100,000 pumpkins into the Connecticut River. Margaret Gladstone of Newmont Farm told WMUR-TV, Manchester, N.H., at least two people who plucked pumpkins from the river have sent her money for them. She said other farmers have offered to help her fill orders. The pumpkins had been picked and were waiting to be shipped when storms hit the area during the weekend. Gladstone estimated the total loss at 100,000 pumpkins. About 4,000 made it at least 25 miles downstream, where they washed up...

    LOS ANGELES — Ilene Woods, the voice of Cinderella in Disney’s animated classic, has died. She was 81. Ms. Woods died Thursday of causes related to Alzheimer’s disease at a nursing home, her husband, Ed Shaughnessy, told the Los Angeles Times. Ms. Woods was an 18-year-old radio singer in 1948 when she recorded a demo for an upcoming Disney feature. Two days later, Walt Disney auditioned her, and she went on to voice the title character’s speaking and singing parts for 1950’s “Cinderella,’’ about a mistreated stepdaughter who finds her Prince Charming.

    Natalia Vodianova: the Cinderella of the Volga 16:30 | 08/ 03/ 2007 MOSCOW. (RIA Novosti commentator Anatoly Korolev) – Natalia Vodianova, one of the world’s top ten models, currently lives in New York City. She is married to Justin Trevor Berkeley Portman, half-brother of the 10th Viscount Portman, a lord born and bred, and a millionaire to boot. Therefore, her children—her son Lucas and baby daughter Neva—indisputably belong to the British aristocracy. Unbelievably, this glamorous Russian lady was a provincial vegetable vendor a mere seven years ago. Her unmarried mother had a hard time raising three daughters, one of whom...

    Monday, August 21, 2006 Any concert tour called 20 Years of Rock And Roll promises an enthusiastic celebration of the music of yesterday. In the case of the Poison/Cinderella double bill that played its laser show-loving heart out at Sound Advice Amphitheatre on Sunday night, that meant plenty of loudly shredding guitars, hair that was sprayed to the heavens and all manner of questionable but era-appropriate mesh. But there was, in the crowd of 30 and 40-somethings reliving their late '80s rock dreams in this Gap khaki age, at least one symbol that proved there was still a genuine mood...

    An opera company has been banned from performing Sergei Prokofiev's Cinderella after setting the classic children's story in a brothel. The Latvian National Opera performed its Cinderella ballet only twice, after complaints from Prokofiev's estate. "There was a huge gap between the original music and the new story," said Noelle Mann, curator of the Sergei Prokofiev Archive. But the opera company said it was "a very beautiful and sincere story". Based on the classic fairytale, Prokofiev wrote the ballet Cinderella in the 1940s. The new Latvian National Opera (LNO) adaptation was performed in Riga before being cancelled. It set the...

    In a rare marketing ploy, the No. 2 U.S. movie theater chain, AMC Entertainment, is offering a money-back guarantee for boxing picture "Cinderella Man," hoping to boost interest in the struggling film amid a record box-office slump. Advertisements offering on-the-spot refunds to AMC patrons unhappy with the film began running June 24 in newspapers and on the exhibitor's Web site (, AMC spokeswoman Pam Blase said Tuesday. The ads, welcomed by the film's distributor, Universal Pictures, say in part: "AMC believes Cinderella Man is one of the finest motion pictures of the year!" Blase said AMC provides occasional rebates to...
