KIRK DOUGLAS ON THE GOLDEN GLOBES: MOST DEPRESSING LIVE MOMENT IN TV HISTORY?

Who’s bright idea was it to invite a 101 year old stroke victim in a wheelchair to appear on The Golden Globes? Granted, Kirk Douglas was a big boxoffice star in the 50’s and 60’s and he did deserve recognition for that, however he would have been better served if his daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones had appeared alone and presented clips of Kirk in his famous roles. Not only did poor Kirk look awful, but he cannot speak clearly. It was an unnecessarily sad and disturbing segment of the show. Also, one cannot ignore the fact that Kirk had an unfortunate history with women – in the past he was kindly described as a “womanizer” and has been accused of raping a teenage Natalie Wood.

    It made no sense having this rapist albeit now stroke victim at an award show that was highlighting sexual assault victims. Unless it was a warning to potential abusers that this too can be your fate. Ughgh if we were really that lucky.

    Wait? Hold on missy…There were how many men at that awards ceremony guilty of “womanizing” or how about actresses “whoring” around on husbands and/or lisasons for career gains (opportunistic endeavors goes both ways._?)?

    But lets say Kirk wasn’t a skirt chaser and just old as rocks? If he desires to be on that stage to get HIS AWARD then he has EVERY RIGHT (no matter how much you dislike his appearances). Is that AGE discrimination?

    I’ve known about the Natalie Wood rape report for about a year now; when this segment of the show came on, I left the room. Shameful.

    He is a pig. There’s been more than one rumor about Douglas raping actresses and being overly aggressive with them.

    There were other abusive men out there in the audience and many that haven’t been outed yet too.

    In fact, there are some well liked/loved male celebrities that have been rumored to mistreat young females and young males. Wonder if those will be in the news soon.

    He and his wife had an open marriage arrangement. She knew he wasn’t ever going to be faithful until his “winkie” ran out of energy.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
