Kevin Spacey comes out as a Gay man and apologizes to Anthony Rapp
October 29th, 2017 under Kevin Spacey, RENT. [ Comments: none ]


Over the weekend, Rent’s Anthony Rapp revealed to Buzzfeed that back in 1986, when he was just 14 years old and Kevin Spacey was 26, they had a night he will never forget. Not in a good way, in a nightmare inducing way that has lasted 31 years.

He alleges that Spacey invited him over to his for a party. Then something happened. Rapp says, “My memory was that I thought, Oh, everybody’s gone. Well, yeah, I should probably go home.” He didn’t and Spacey, “sort of stood in the doorway, kind of swaying. My impression when he came in the room was that he was drunk,” adding, “He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me.” Then he told the site, “He was trying to seduce me…I don’t know if I would have used that language. But I was aware that he was trying to get with me sexually.” Eventually Rapp was able to push the man, who was almost twice his age at the time, off of him, retreat in the bathroom and then eventually head home wondering what just happened. It is night that has stayed with him for over three decades and he feels “fortunate that something worse didn’t happen.”

The story went public and Spacey responded to accusations on Twitter. He says he does not remember the night and blames what might have happened on “deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.” He is also sorry for the pain that he caused his fellow actor.

But that is not all that the Oscar winner revealed, he also finally came clean about all of those rumors that he is a Gay man. He confirmed that he has “had relationships with both men and women.” But he chose “now to live as a Gay man.”

He concluded his statement by saying, “I want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior.”

Seven minutes after Spacey posted his statement, the Star Trek: Discovery star Tweeted, “I came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out to shine a light and hopefully make a difference, as they have done for me. Everything I wanted to say about my experience is in that article, and I have no further comment about it at this time.” Rapp has been openly out for a long time, so it will be interesting to see if he will comment further after Spacey’s apology and confession.

UPDATE: To give you some perspective of what Rapp looked like at the time, it was around when he filmed Adventures in Babysitting. Therefore, he looked like a 14-year-old going on 15 and not 14 going on 21.

Taye Diggs makes me want to get physical!
September 26th, 2017 under Ellen DeGeneres, RENT. [ Comments: 1 ]


Taye Diggs wanted to make an entrance on Ellen, and boy did he make one today that will be very hard to top. And I do mean hard! The actor came out doing aerobics to Olivia Newton-John’s Physical in a one-piece spandex leotard, and we could hear his body talk. So much so, our bodies are talking back and saying schwing!

Seriously, didn’t that grand entrance make you happy? What is it about watching aerobics that makes you happy? Doing that exercise is a completely different story!

Idina Menzel only marries people who starred in Rent with her
September 25th, 2017 under RENT. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 2003, Idina Menzel married Taye Diggs, her co-star from the Broadway version of Rent. This weekend, she married another Rent co-star, but this time from the 2005 movie. Aaron Lohr and her tied the knot at their house as her father and 8-year-old son, Walker Nathaniel Diggs, walked her down the aisle. The actress described the nuptials as, “It was magical.” If anyone would know, it would be a Disney Queen.

Lohr and Menzel started dating 10 years after they made Rent, and got engaged almost exactly a year before they said I do.

Will Fox lose its dignity with Rent?
May 12th, 2017 under Fox, RENT. [ Comments: none ]


In less that 525,600 minutes Fox will be adapting Rent for the small screen with a live version sometime next season. The Broadway musical is about AIDS, drugs, homosexuality and being as free as you can before the turn of the millennium in NYC. I just don’t know how they are going to do it for broadcast TV and keep the feel that the late Jonathan Larson was going for, you know La Vie Bohème, even though his estate gave their blessing for the production.

The only way I would approve of it, is if they get the original cast members to do it. But instead they will go with cast members from Glee. No one can see One Song Glory like Adam Pascal. His voice was made for Rent.

Now, I thought I would hate Grease Live, but I enjoyed it. I knew I would detest Rocky Horror Picture Show and I am still flipping mad over it. And not in a Dr. Frank-N-Furter way. Well kind of like how he felt towards Eddie sort of way.

Anyways, I will try to be positive, but Rent is one my favorite plays and I just don’t have enough faith in them to get it right. How do you feel about them doing Rent?

Idina Menzel lost her virginity in her parents’ bed
November 15th, 2016 under James Corden, Jane the Virgin, RENT. [ Comments: none ]


Gina Rodriguez was on The Late Late Show yesterday and James Corden wanted to know if strangers come up to the Jane the Virgin star to talk about how they lost her virginity. They do.
She wanted to see if the CBS late night would tell how he lost his, but he had the best way of getting out of that confession. His parents were at the taping. Since Idina Menzel’s were not, she coughed up to how she had her cherry was popped. She gave it up to a boy she had been dating for a long time in her parents’ bed. She wonders if that was a bad thing. That and if all the little Elsas were asleep because they shouldn’t know how she let it go.
