By Peter Larsen | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: October 1, 2018 at 9:01 pm | UPDATED: October 1, 2018 at 9:02 pm Tamra Judge orders a vodka soda with a little bit of cranberry and lime on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” episode that aired Monday, Oct. 1, and yes, that normally wouldn’t be worth the top of a Housewives’ recap. The road to bad behavior, and probably Coto de Caza, too, is paved with the broken lipstick-smudged tumblers and shotglasses from which the Housewives’ daily rations of vodka, tequila, and champagne are served. But this drink is unique: It is, you see, the only booze any housewife throws back in the entire episode, and yes, we’re not counting the white wine and Chardonnay that some of them sip in the final minutes. As if polite sips of fermented grapes is at all how our six heroines are supposed to hit the sauce. This is emblematic of a bigger problem with the entire episode. It is altogether … [Read more...] about ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’: Shannon sells frozen food on TV and Kelly sets a new low for vulgar over-sharing

Michael Cohen reportedly said he’d rather jump out of a building than turn on President Trump. I wonder what he’s thinking as the floors whiz by. Cohen has been Trump’s lawyer, finder of deals and devoted “Ray Donovan”-style fixer of problems for a decade. At least that’s what Cohen thought he was. During a phone interview Thursday with his favorite cable show, “Fox & Friends,” Trump sounded as if he hardly knew the guy. Cohen does no more than “a tiny, tiny little fraction” of his legal work, Trump claimed. “I have so many attorneys, you wouldn’t believe.” Indeed there is much I wouldn’t believe, coming from Trump, but the message about Cohen couldn’t have been clearer. “I hope he’s in great shape” in terms of his business dealings, the president said.

“This is the beginning of an American concentration camp.” Those words shook the Washington courtroom as Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo shouted over a slamming gavel. Trumbo was one of many who refused to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) investigation into communist influence in motion pictures. (Columbia University Press) The Hollywood blacklist is one of the most written about eras of film history but also one of the least understood. Thomas Doherty’s illuminating new “Show Trial” presents readers with the tumultuous state of labor relations in the American film industry that led to several investigations into Hollywood, culminating in 1947. As Doherty explains, the relationship between labor and the studios was always strained. During the 1930s and early 1940s, the mob-run International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) kept relations tense. By the end of 1945, less-than-peaceful strikes organized by … [Read more...] about When Hollywood caved to a congressman with no decency
