Debra Wilson Talks Queer Legacy of MADtv Whitney Houston Parodies, New Series 'My Sister Is So Gay'
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Debra Wilson has never been one to hold back. The comic’s parodies of a chemically altered Whitney Houston and an overly enthusiastic Oprah Winfrey – played without remorse or reservation during her 14-year run on MADtv ― proved as iconic as they were scathing. The fiery actress doesn’t mince words about the queer community either. “I don’t give a fuck who you fuck; that’s your business,” said Wilson emphatically. “That, to me, doesn’t define you as gay [people],” she continued during an interview on Party Foul Radio with Pollo & Pearl. “The complexities of your relationships, and the commitment to your relationships, define you as a human being who happens to be in love with another man.” In 1995, when Wilson was cast as a series original on sketch comedy MADtv, she had no idea her performances would lead to a cult-like queer following. When she started to spoof legendary vocalist Whitney Houston, however, the actress noticed an increasing number of LGBT fans. “The ‘diva’ ...

Family Gives Shelter Dog With Inoperable Cranial Tumor the Gift of a Lifetime
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Tuesday (12/29/15) in Houston, TX. How It Works A Shelter. This 3-year-old dog came into Montgomery County Animal Shelter as a stray today. A Rescue. Lone Star Boxer Rescue was contacted by the shelter and they agreed to take him into their program immediately. A Volunteer. He was transported to their vet for further tests. There is a tumor on the inside of his cranial cavity under the bone. A Foster. It is inoperable and his life expectancy is 2 days. He is now in hospice care. A Decision-maker. I asked Leisha Stinchcombe, the director of the rescue group, "Why did they pull this dog from the shelter today?" Her response was, "Just to make sure he knows love for a few days." A Donation. Groups like this can only exist and do this badass work with our financial help. This dog is 1 of 3 terminally ill boxers that Lone Star took into their program today. Leisha commented: Adalard is his name. The day may not be easy but we are fierce with determination. Thi ...

Huffington Post - over 1 year
Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds is getting candid about his love life.  The 79-year-old movie star recently opened up about former girlfriend Sally Fields, telling Vanity Fair that she was the "love of my life." "I miss her terribly," Reynolds told the magazine. "Even now, it’s hard on me. I don’t know why I was so stupid. Men are like that, you know. You find the perfect person, and then you do everything you can to screw it up."  But there's one person Reynolds isn't missing at all -- his ex-wife Loni Anderson. Anderson and the actor went through a famously messy divorce in the early '90s, accusing each other of infidelity and physical brutality, according to TMZ. The actor recently sat down with People magazine to talk about his tumultuous relationship with Anderson.  "I should have known that you don't marry an actress," said Reynolds to People. "That was a really dumb move on my part."  Reynolds, who was recently ordered by a judge to pay the actress around $1 ...

Washington state Catholic bishop warned over anti-gay marriage campaign
Yahoo News - over 4 years
OLYMPIA, Washington (Reuters) - Washington state regulators have warned a Roman Catholic bishop that his diocese risks running afoul of state campaign finance laws if he follows through with a planned fund-raising effort opposing same-sex marriage on the November ballot. State law prohibits organizations, including churches, from raising money from individuals to give to political campaigns, said Lori Anderson, a spokeswoman for the state's Public Disclosure Commission. "It's not because it's a church. It's because it's not a stand-alone individual," Anderson said on Thursday. ...

  • THIRTIES
  • 1984
    Age 37

    More Details Hide Details She appeared in television adaptations of classic Hollywood films, such as A Letter to Three Wives (1985) with Michele Lee, and Sorry, Wrong Number (1989) with Patrick Macnee and Hal Holbrook, both of which received little attention. After starring in Coins in the Fountain (1990), Anderson received considerable praise for her portrayal of comedian actress Thelma Todd in the television movie White Hot: The Mysterious Murder of Thelma Todd (1991). In the early 1990s, she attempted to co-star with her husband Burt Reynolds on his new CBS sitcom Evening Shade, but the network was not fond of the idea, thus replacing Anderson with Marilu Henner.

    More Details Hide Details The sitcom's creator, Hugh Wilson, later admitted that Anderson got the part because her body resembled Jayne Mansfield and because she possessed the innocent sexuality of Marilyn Monroe.
