Joe Exotic Getting A Prison Husband

Joseph Maldonado-Passage, the Tiger King star best known by the name “Joe Exotic,” is divorcing his husband to marry a man he met while they were both incarcerated.  A public statement from his attorney, Autumn Beck Blackledge, announced that he filed for divorce on Thursday from his husband of four years, Dillon Passage. The pair had last lived together in Gulf Breeze, Fla.  “Joe ‘Exotic’ has tried to obtain information about Mr. Passage and his whereabouts so that the two could enter into what he hopes to be an amicable divorce, but so far, his attempts to get Mr. Passage to contact him have failed,” the press release stated. “It is the hope of the Tiger King that they can both move on with their lives and divorce quickly and amicably.”  Passage had previously announced on Instagram that the pair was splitting up in March 2021.  In divorce documents obtained by TMZ, Maldonado-Passage said the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”  Autumn Beck Blackledge told People that Joe now wants to marry John Graham, who he met while they were both incarcerated. Graham has since been released.  “John Robert Graham and I are officially engaged and plan to marry as soon as my divorce is final,” Maldonado-Passage said in a tweet on Saturday. “We were together over one year in prison and he is home now with our son. I have never met such an amazing man in my life. He treats me so well, you will love him.”
*****Where will they honeymoon? In the showers??
********They had a son?? Wait.. don’t ask.
*****Joe tends to break up with his guys as soon as they get a full set of teeth!!

Will Smith Resigns From Academy

Will Smith resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Friday after he slapped Chris Rock during Sunday’s 94th annual Oscars.  It comes after the academy said a formal review of the altercation was underway, with the organization saying Wednesday that it had “initiated disciplinary proceedings” that may result in suspension, expulsion, or other sanctions under its bylaws and standards of conduct.   Smith said in a statement that he will accept any further consequences for the incident.  “I have directly responded to the Academy’s disciplinary hearing notice, and I will fully accept any and all consequences for my conduct,” Smith said. “My actions at the 94th Academy Awards presentation were shocking, painful, and inexcusable. The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home. I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work.  I am heartbroken. I want to put the focus back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to get back to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film.”
****In other words, “You can’t kick me out.. I quit!!”
****Chris Rock offered to smooth things over by sleeping with Will’s wife!!
********Right now, Will is slapping HIMSELF!!
******Why isn’t Jada being punished? She’s the one who made him do it!!

Kanye West Is Going To Get Help

After months of Kanye West publicly addressing his divorce proceedings and co-parenting arrangement with estranged wife Kim Kardashian in interviews and on social media, he has reportedly told Kim that he is “going away to get help.”  “For the sake of the kids, Kanye has told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and he will go away somewhere to get better,” a source close to the Kardashians says.  The insider said it remains to be seen whether West is planning to check into a treatment center or if he is simply removing himself from the public limelight and social channels.  West is staying in Los Angeles to be with the four children he shares with Kardashian — North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.  The reported step back comes in the wake of a recent Instagram ban in which the social media platform suspended West for 24 hours last month after he allegedly violated Meta’s policies on hate speech, harassment and bullying.  Even more recently, he was removed as a performer from The Grammys.
********He can still ATTEND the Grammys, however.. which means there could be another slapping event in our future!!
*******When most guys “go away to get help,” it means they’re heading for the local bar!!
****Some people call it social media.. in Kanye’s case, it’s called “evidence!!”

Mama June To Be Grandma Of Twins

Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, the 22-year-old daughter of reality star June “Mama June” Shannon is reportedly expecting twins with her husband, Joshua Efird.  She is pregnant with a boy and a girl, sources close to Pumpkin told TMZ.  Pumpkin is approximately six months along with a due date around June 18, the outlet reports.  She is already a mom to daughter Ella, 4, and son Bentley, whom she welcomed just eight months ago.  Pumpkin announced Bentley’s birth with a sweet Instagram snap in July 2021.  “After being admitted into the hospital last night at 2-3 centimeters with heavy contractions our baby boy has finally made his debut,” she wrote at the time.  News of Pumpkin’s reported third pregnancy comes just days after her mother sparked engagement rumors.  Mama June was seen jewelry shopping with her boyfriend, Justin Stroud, 34, at an Alabama mall last week.
*********If you live in a broken-down trailer, this all makes sense!!!

Denzel Washington Speaks Out On Oscars

Denzel Washington has shared his thoughts on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock during Sunday night’s Oscars after he was seen consoling Will following the incident.  “Well, there’s a saying, ‘When the devil ignores you, then you know you’re doing something wrong,’” Washington began Saturday morning during a discussion about his career and faith with author and bishop T.D. Jakes during his leadership summit, Variety reports.  “The devil goes, ‘Oh no, leave him alone, he’s my favorite,’” he continued. “Conversely, when the devil comes at you, maybe it’s because he’s trying to do something, right? And for whatever reason, the devil got ahold of that circumstance that night.”  Washington, Tyler Perry, Bradley Cooper and others were seen speaking to Smith during the commercial break that followed the actor smacking Rock across the face for a G.I. Jane joke aimed at wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.  Denzel continued, “Fortunately there were people there. Not just me, but others, Tyler Perry, came immediately right over there with me. [Said] some prayers.  “I don’t wanna say what we talked about, but there but for the grace of God go any of us. Who are we to condemn? I don’t know all the ins and outs of the situation, but I know the only solution was prayer, the way I see it,” Washington added.
********We wish more people would see it the way Denzel sees it!!
*********Before Denzel and Tyler Perry came over, Will didn’t HAVE a prayer!!
*******Who are we to judge?? Well, we’re the Twitter mob, that’s who!!!

Some Projects Of Will Smith On Hold

Some of Will Smith’s upcoming projects have been paused in the wake of the Oscars-slap controversy.  Netflix was in the process of finding a new director for “Fast and Loose,” after David Leitch withdrew from the project ahead of the Academy Awards, the Hollywood Reporter said. Smith was to play a crime boss with a memory problem.  Sony is also putting the brakes on “Bad Boys 4,” which had been gearing up ahead of the awards show. The slave drama “Emancipation,” made for Apple+, has already been completed.
*******The projects may be on hold, but the hypocrisy just keeps on comin’!!!
******So… Alec Baldwin can keep on working, but not Will Smith?? Roman Polanski is working?? All the pedophiles in the Academy?? Right??
****He will be back!! Because if Kevin Spacey can work, Will can, too!! If he can make them a dollar, they’ll hire him!!

“Pickleball’s an issue….we argue over it.”-Russell Wilson, who isn’t a fan of wife Ciara’s gloating when she wins.

Robot Dog Patrolling Pompeii

Officials in Italy said they have enlisted the service of a robot dog to patrol the ancient ruins of the city of Pompeii, with the mechanical quadruped’s duties including identifying safety issues and finding tunnels created by thieves.  The Pompeii Archaeological Park announced Spot, a dog-like robot developed by U.S. firm Boston Dynamics, is now wandering the ancient ruins of the city, which was destroyed by a volcanic eruption nearly 2,000 years ago.  The park said Spot’s duties include inspecting the ancient buildings for dangerous structural issues, assessing the progress of restoration work and identifying and inspecting tunnels created by relic thieves.  “Often the safety conditions within the tunnels dug by grave robbers are extremely precarious, and so the use of a robot could signify a breakthrough that would allow us to proceed with greater speed and in total safety,” Gabriel Zuchtriegel, director of the archaeological park, said in a news release.  See the video HERE.
********He also has a death-dealing laser beam built in!! What could go wrong??
*****The Boston Dynamics “dogs” are pretty scary, and some HAVE been fitted with weapons!!
*****On the other hand, have you seen them dancing in the beer commercial?? So cute!!

Penis Festival Coming To Japan

Revelers in a Japanese city are preparing for the Kanamara Matsuri, an annual celebration also known as the “Penis Festival.”  The Kanamara Matsuri, which roughly translates to “Festival of the Steel Phallus,” begins each year on the first Sunday of April at the Kanayama Shrine in Kawasaki.  The festival centers around the Shinto god Kanayama-hiko and the goddess Kanayama-hime. The deities are associated with the metallurgic arts and sexual health.  Revelers at the festival traditionally include sex workers seeking protection from disease and in modern times the crowd has grown to include LGBTQ groups seeking sexual blessings and married couples praying for fertility and healthy children.
*****In Japan, that should be a short festival!! We hear..
********If you’re having a “penis festival,” you should include some well-known dicks!! Joe Biden and Will Smith come to mind!!
****Here in the states, we call it a “sausage party!!”

Largest Insect Hotel

A Scottish conservation group earned a Guinness World Record by constructing an insect hotel measuring more than 7,000 cubic feet.  Conservation group Highland Titles used felled sitka spruce, masonry bricks, bamboo canes, wood chips, forest bark, wildflower seeds, clay pipes and strawberry netting to build a 7,059.4-cubic-foot insect hotel on the Highland Titles Nature Reserve in Duror.  A Guinness World Records adjudicator visited the site and confirmed the insect hotel, which already houses a variety of species, took the world record from a 3,157-cubic-foot insect hotel built in Warsaw, Poland.  “This record-breaking initiative is about the environmental message,” Highland Titles CEO Douglas Wilson said in a news release. “We bought this land in 2006 when it was a poorly performing commercial forestry plantation of non-native Sitka spruce.
*********We have an insect hotel.. in our house!! They’re all over the place!!
*****By law, they can’t keep the spiders out!! So, there goes the neighborhood!!
*******One couple checked in as “Mr. and Mrs. A. Phid!!” Obviously a phony name!!

All-Woman’s Sports Bar Opening

An Oregon bar holding its grand opening Friday is called The Sports Bra and is dedicated exclusively to women’s sports.  Jenny Nguyen, a chef and founder of The Sports Bra in Portland, said she believes her business is the world’s first sports bar dedicated exclusively to women’s sports.  “Hopefully not for long,” Nguyen told The Oregonian newspaper.  Nguyen said she came up with the idea for the bar about four years ago, while watching a championship game at a bar on a small TV with no sound.  “I said something to the effect of ‘Man, the only way we’re ever gonna have the opportunity to watch women’s sports in its full glory is if we had our own place,'” she told KATU-TV.  Nguyen said the bar’s first night of business will kick off Friday with a pair of Final Four basketball games, followed by a Portland Thorns soccer game on Saturday.  “I want people to walk in here and feel like maybe it’s a regular sports bar and have no idea until they sit down and pay a little more attention,” Nguyen said.  The menu for The Sports Bra includes drinks called Title X and Triple Axle.
*********The patrons all showed up in diesel trucks!!!
*****The bar was a sea of flannel shirts and hiking boots!!
