Piers Morgan pressed her hard, but Republican Party’s Christine O’Donnell refused to discuss the subject of gay marriages during her Wednesday night appearance on the British host’s talk show.
O’Donnell was on Morgan’s show for the promotion of her new book titled “Troublemaker.” But unlike many other hosts, who glorify their guests’ writings without ever really giving it a read, Morgan decided to have his fun.
Morgan brought up the subject of homosexual marriage and asked O’Donnell what she thinks about the infamous “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” military policy, which is scheduled to expire forMore >
The celebrities have the case of the dramatics. And when it comes to conservative politicians, liberal Hollywood leaves no room for slip of judgement. Case in point: George Lopez and his case of hate for potential presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
In an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, Lopez defiantly made his stand and assured Morgan he would leave the United States if Palin is elected. And not move to Mexico but Canada. ”I will go further North. I’ve been South but I will go further North. I will leave the United States of America.”
But he slipped in the word “allegedly” at one pointMore >
In a scene straight out of a political thriller movie, Hollywood actress Michelle Yeoh, 48, was immediately deported from Myanmar June 22 upon arrival. A source from the military-backed government said Yeoh was placed on its blacklist but failed to give the real reason why.
This was to be her second visit; she was able to enter the country fine this past December. But on that visit, Yeoh met with a famous political figure that she’s playing in her next movie “The Lady” – pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Suu Kyi, 66, is known for her political activism against the government. She’s wonMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – As part of Republican proposed spending cuts an amendment was introduced to the spending bill that would bar Planned Parenthood, and end Title X, a federal grant program established in 1970 to provide contraceptive services, sexual health care supplies and information to low-income women. So MoveOn.org, a liberal political action committee, has launched a counter on-air offensive, running an eerie television advertisement showing a woman played by actress Lisa Edelstein, in 1950s-era clothing apparently in need of an abortion walking nervously toward a closet where aMore >
[HMG Celebrity News] – In the latest installment in the life of a family who are a reality show all on their own, supposedly Bristol Palin has found a new man and is planning a baby. And Sarah Palin is not keen on the deal.
Bristol’s new guy is Giacinto “Gino” Paoletti, a 20-year-old pipeline worker from Bristol’s home town of Wasilla. The pair have known each other for years but according to the National Enquirer, got closer during a trip to New York over Thanksgiving.

[HMG Celebrity News] – Mariah Carey has never shied away from attention but her husband, Nick Cannon’s recent confession should create a lot more – This morning Nick told his radio fans that Mariah is expecting twins.
During his show ‘Rollin’ with Nick Cannon’ on New York’s ’92.3 Now’ 30-year old Nick just couldn’t hold the good news in;
“In order for my wife and I to have our life, we need to be up front,” he told the audience. “I didn’t even tell my wife I was gonna do this, and I’m probably gonna get yelled at for not getting permission – We’re having twins!”

(HMG Celebrity News) – In more free publicity that will just make Sarah Palin that much more popular among her constituency, West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin is accusing the former Alaskan governor, who is assumed to be mounting a run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination of shooting an animal ‘for political gain,’ on her TLC television travelogue series. Sunday’s episode of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” featured the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate shooting a caribou, while hunting north of the Arctic Circle. Appalled by seeing Palin kill and carve up a caribou, Sorkin, whoMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – Margaret Cho has got to be joking right? The comedian says that “someone who really should know” (really should seriously know the dirt really really) claims Sarah Palin made her daughter Bristol do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ as revenge for getting pregnant. Cho who was also on DWTS with Bristol wrote on her blog, “Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS so ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah PalinMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – Interesting study on how political tendencies seem to have a strong influence on the shows we watch. While cable networks appeal to more specific viewpoints, like Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart to Fox News’ Glenn Beck, the data suggests that main stream success may require pleasing conservatives. According to months of data from leading media-research company Experian Simmons, viewers who register as Republican are more likely than voting Democrats to watch the biggest hit shows on television. That’s probably not great news in Hollywood, whichMore >

She also happens to be the girlfriend of Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo, and participated in his campaign and stood beside him when he made his Election Night victory speech. Traditionally, the state’s First Ladies have had a prominent public role in government as well as a staff and budget. But since the charismatic couple haven’t married yet, Sandra won’t be a ‘first lady’ or have any official titles, duties or staff, it’s now being More >
[HMG Celebrity News] – In what may be the most fitting rebuttal to Glenn Beck’s recent gathering, Comedy Central stars Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have announced their own rallies to restore this nation’s mental health.
Stewart, 47, announced plans for his October 30th assembly entitled ‘The Rally to Restore Sanity’ on last night’s show, describing as being for people ‘too busy with their normal lives to go to other political rallies.’
“We’re looking for people who think shouting is annoying,’ he explains on the rally’s new web site. “Who feel the loudest voices shouldn’t be the onlyMore >
(HMG) – Looks like Wyclef Jean is not going to be running in Haiti’s presidential election in November. According to an electoral official, the celebrity singer-songwriter did not fully meet the requirements, including the fact that he doesn’t have a primary residence in Haiti. It’s a requirement of the nation’s constitution to live in Haiti five consecutive years before the election. “He is not on the list as I speak,” an electoral official told Reuters. Thirty-four contenders, including Jean, filed documents to run for the Haitian presidency this month. But Jean told CNN’s LarryMore >
