Kirk Cameron’s ‘Growing Pains’ Dad: Kirk Needs A Spanking.

Who would ever have thought the “Growing Pains” family’s deepest family woes would be decades after the show ended production. Now Kirk Cameron’s TV family seem to think the actor should be grounded. Or as Alan Thicke would put it – spanked – for his hateful remarks.

Family Feud.

Who would ever have thought the “Growing Pains” family’s deepest family woes would be decades after the show ended production. Now Kirk Cameron’s TV family seem to think the actor should be grounded. Or as Alan Thicke would put it – spanked – for his hateful remarks.

Cameron, the former Growing Pains star, is in damage control mode (more on that below) after making controversial statements about homosexuality on CNN”s Piers Morgan show… calling homosexuality “unnatural,” and adding, “I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Alan Thicke, who played Cameron’s TV dad from Growing Pains, responded on Twitter, “I’ll address kirk’s comments as soon as I recover from rush limbaugh’s” and “I’m getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can’t be expected to explain everything.” He later tweeted, “I love Kirk but I may have to spank him…’tho not in a gay way!”

Tracy Gold, who played Cameron’s “Growing Pains” sister, also did some tweeting, writing: “I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all.”

Other celebrities responded to the controversy as well – including “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, rock star Nikki Sixx and Roseanne Barr. Barr described Cameron “an accomplice to murder with his hate speech.”

Cameron has since begun the process of unsticking his foot from his mouth, but not quite so successfully. In an email to ABC News.

Says Cameron:

“I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people.”

“I should be able to express moral views on social issues … especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.”

“I believe we need to learn how to debate these things with greater love and respect,” he said, before adding, “I’ve been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally).”

GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, responded to the email appropriately:

“Saying that gay people are ‘detrimental to civilization’ might be ‘loving’ in Kirk Cameron’s mind, but it’s gay youth and victims of bullying who truly suffer from adults like Cameron who espouse these ideas … Obviously, Cameron has the right to recite his anti-gay talking points, just like fair-minded Americans have the right to tell him that his views are harmful and have no place in modern America.”

I disagree vehemently with all of Kirk Cameron’s sentiments. As sad as his remarks are, if there is anything I can gain from what he said, it is this: the knowledge, awareness and ability to refuse to watch any single project he works on or contribute to the success of any organizaiton, program or entity that hires him.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
