Dave Chappelle leads major list of comics for The Comedy Store benefit

Some desperately needed help is on the way for comics that saw their pay dry up when corona shut comedy joints down.

Dave Chappelle leads an all-star lineup of comedians including Bill Burr and Whitney Cummings in a three-podcast video conference benefit with The Comedy Store to drum up $100,000 for those in the comedy industry who are in need.

The benefit with the famed comedy venue, located on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, raised the six-figure total via texts to 41444, TMZ reported.

It was spread over three live, hour-long podcasts, with Chappelle reunited with his former Chappelle’s Show costars Burr, Neal Brennan and Donnell Rawlings on the third.

André Leon Talley says Anna Wintour ghosted his ass

André Leon Talley says Anna Wintour ghosted his ass

André Leon Talley has been a large caped presence at every major fashion event for decades now.  Thanks in part to his (seemingly) tight relationship with the Queen Bee of fashion, Anna Wintour.

You probably recall she was the (not so secret) inspiration for the bitch boss in The Devil Wears Prada, so perhaps Andy should have seen her wrath coming.

Daily Mail obtained a copy of André’s upcoming book, “The Chiffon Trenches”. The 70-year-old former editor-at-large of Vogue is dishing the details of his once-close friendship with Anna.

In the book, André says he has “huge emotional and psychological scars” after working with the Vogue editor for decades. He writes Anna is “not capable of simple human kindness” and “she is immune to anyone other than the powerful and famous people who populate the pages of Vogue.” André is a fashion icon in his own right and started working for Vogue in 1983.

André explains where his relationship with Anna started to go south. In 2016, he started hosting a Vogue podcast that featured celebrity guests. The show was a success, but he took issue with only being paid $500 per episode. The podcast was suddenly canned without explanation.

In early 2018, he was ready to start preparing for his regular Met Gala red carpet interviews. He says nobody reached out to him about the gig. He called the office and was told the job was “beneath” him even though had had done it for years. He realized it was a sign that he was being pushed out.

He writes, “This was clearly a stone-cold business decision. I had suddenly become too old, too overweight, too uncool, I imagined, for Anna Wintour. After decades of loyalty and friendships…Anna should have had the decency and kindness to call me or send me an email saying: ‘Andre, I think we have had a wonderful run with your interviews but we are going to try something new.”

“She has mercilessly made her best friends people who are the highest in their chosen fields. Serena Williams, Roger Federer, Mr. and Mrs. George Clooney are, to her, friends. I am no longer of value to her.”

Honestly, if that’s the worst of things, he needs to spend time with teenage girls.  He’ll be crying in minutes.

Still the book should be interesting.  I’m looking forward to it.

Prince Harry texted Meghan Markle’s dad

Prince Harry texted Meghan Markle’s dad

That’s the title of the post, ok, but I’ll tell you at the top here that this was before their wedding.  Harry texted Megs dad before the wedding.  This is according to court docs.

So you know Megs and Harry are suing the tabloid machine, Associated Newspapers.  For invading her privacy by publishing portions of a letter she sent to her father ahead of the May 2018 royal nuptials.

Now Reuters reports that Harry submitted text messages to London’s High Court which revealed his exchange with Thomas Markle.

“Tom, Harry again! Really need to speak to u. U do not need to apologize, we understand the circumstances but ‘going public’ will only make the situation worse,” one of Harry’s text messages read.

The Duke of Sussex then followed up with another message: “So please call me so I can explain. Meg and I are not angry, we just need to speak to u. Thanks. Oh any speaking to the press WILL backfire, trust me Tom. Only we can help u, as we have been trying from day 1.”

Meghans scumbag father claims he has the right to release the letters… you know what? Even if you do, don’t! Asshole. That’s your daughter.  You’re a petty old man and a fame digger.

You stage pap pics to convince the world you were sick and she abandoned you and you’re gross.

Taylor Swift cancels 2020 tour dates due to Covid

Taylor Swift has canceled her 2020 tour dates — including her Lover Fests — due to the coronavirus pandemic. Her planned U.S. shows will instead take place in 2021.

“I’m so sad I won’t be able to see you guys in concert this year, but I know this is the right decision,” Swift tweeted Friday. “Please, please stay healthy and safe. I’ll see you on stage as soon as I can but right now what’s important is committing to this quarantine, for the sake of all of us.”

“Fighting COVID-19 is an unprecedented challenge for our global community and the safety and wellbeing of fans should always be the top priority. Health organizations and governments around the world have strongly discouraged large public gatherings for an undetermined period of time,” Swift’s team said in a statement. “With many events throughout the world already canceled, and upon direction from health officials in an effort to keep fans safe and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, sadly the decision has been made to cancel all Taylor Swift live appearances and performances this year.”

Swift only planned a handful of shows in support of her 2019 LP “Lover,” including a free gig prior to the NCAA’s March Madness Final Four that was ultimately canceled when the college basketball tournament itself was canceled at the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak in America.
