Let's Talk About Will and Jada

Sitting like a lady . . . Will? 
Earlier this week, courtesy of In Touch, stories were circulated that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were separating.  Not massive news, I grant you, especially given the report that about 50% of all marriages end in divorce.  Yes, 50%.  That's a pretty sad commentary on our society today, isn't it?

What I found interesting about the alleged Smith/Pinkett-Smith separation was that Jada Pinkett Smith is probably the most vocal celebrity when it comes to declaring how amazingly wonderful their marriage is and, in particular, how active and satisfying and nonstop their sex life is.  This amount of oversharing is generally a big old red flag that when someone finds the need to overshare and overcompensate, they are making up for something.  As my grandmother used to say, those who talk the most, get the least.  Or, thou doth protest too much, in a sense, Jada.

I'm not saying that Will and Jada didn't have the most amazing sex life (although I don't think any of us need to know about the backs of limos on the way to awards shows or throughout their house or even commenting about it in front of their children).  I'm just wondering if this amazing sex life was being shared with the other.

Despite their denials of same, I firmly believe that Will and Jada are Scientologists.  They may not be daily practicing Scientologists of the "If you don't like Scientology, then fuck you" variety Tom Cruise but Will reportedly gave out Scientology personality test gift cards to the crew of his film Hancock.  Bear in mind that these so-called personality tests are administered free by the Church of Scientology (wow, thanks for the gift, Will) but the COS will always find a personality flaw that they sure can fix.  For the right price, of course.  Just ask Tom Cruise.

Furthermore, the school that he and Jada founded, The New Village Academy in Los Angeles, uses instructional methods pioneered by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard.  Or should I say "instructional" because Scientology surely doesn't prepare kids or people for adulthood and the real world, unless couch jumping and declaring AIDS a state of mind is a requirement of life.

So maybe Will and/or Jada claim they aren't Scientologists but they are free about applying Scientology tenants to at least the lives of others.

Soooooo . . . despite denials that Will and/or Jada are Scientologists, despite Scientology's track record for arranging bearded marriages for those Scieno celebrities who want to appear like the perfect heterosexual family man/woman, despite rumors that Will and Jada fall in this last category, if the separation rumors are true, why are Will and Jada splitting after 13 years?

Let's start with the separation rumors.  Where there is smoke, there is fire, people.  In Hollywood, once a couple announces their split, you can rest assured that the actual separation happened about six months earlier.  Because these people aren't your average John and Jane Smith; they have publicists that must be notified and then a plan of action needs to be put into place.  They can't separate and go about their daily business.  Their joint images and reputations must be considered, the future of any television shows or movie franchises are in play and then it must be decided who goes to People with their tale.  Many factors!

So if this story has legs, Will and Jada actually separated shortly after the first of the year.  I have no idea what may have happened then but the rumor mill is currently spinning that Jada got involved with her HawthoRNe co-star, Mark Anthony, which not only caused a rift in  her marriage but spelled the end of his with Jennifer Lopez.   It's also rumored that Will's publicist butted heads with Jada's publicist and they did not have common goals in sight for their clients.

Interesting.  What's interesting is that Will and Jada did not share the same publicist.

I'm wondering what role, if any, Scientology plays in all this.  After all, are there are any truly happy Scientologists out there?  Are there any successful celebrity Scientology marriages?  John Travolta and Kelly Preston have been married for nearly 20 years so I guess you would consider that successful but we've all heard the rumors and let's face it, John isn't looking so happy these days.  Despite that gorgeous little baby.

Those crazy Scientologists
And do we really need to talk about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes?  When these two took their fauxmance on the road back in 2005, their excessive grins and smiles was like being present at a tooth whitening convention.  These days I can't remember the last time the two of them were in the same zip code, much less acting like a couple that shares the "most amazing" love.  Ever.

Back to the Smiths.  What happened?  I thought for sure that Tom and Katie Show would implode before Will and Jada.  Are Will and Jada really finished?  Or is this a slick PR move in advance of Men in Black 3?

Meet Melissa, the Queen Bridezilla

So I was channel surfing last night and ended up having a good two (okay, maybe three) hours of my life drained by WE's bridal bitchfest Bridezillas.  I realize the point of the show is to showcase what out of control hags some women are when planning their weddings but Miss Melissa really takes the cake. 

First, she claims to be 23 and I always find it interesting that most of these chicks look older than they claim to be.  I'd like to see a birth certificate before I agree to that.  She also claims to be in medical school, which is really funny considering (1) Melissa seems to have an awful lot of free time on her hands, to bitch, whine, complain and threaten to kill people and (2) for someone who claims to want a career saving lives, she sure talks about taking a lot of them.  (Case in point:  Melissa, concerned that she won't be happy with her wedding cake, tells the camera that if the baker screws it up, she will kill her and eat her). 

So . . . Melissa and her oh-s…

Are You Watching Detroit 1-8-7?

If you're not watching Detroit 1-8-7, you should be.  This is one of those shows that has a lot of promise, that works really well now and will only get better over time . . . but gets almost no marketing and no push from its network.  Those bastards. 

I have dealt with this in the past with NBC (Nothing But Cancellations) - - remember JourneymanThe Black DonnellysMy Own Worst Enemy?  All shows that had interesting concepts and could have really been developed but were cancelled in their first seasons.  Shame, NBC.

I hope ABC doesn't follow suit with Detroit 1-8-7.  If you like dramas that involve police investigations, Detroit 1-8-7 will fit the bill.  Michael Imperioli, late of The Sopranos and Life on Mars, helms this show as Detective Louis Fitch and while I haven't always been a huge fan of his, he nails this role.  Without him, this would be just other generic drama but he brings so much depth and interest to this role, it elevates the show out of cookie cutte…

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe: No Pardons!

August 19, 2011 was a joyous day for many reasons.  It was Friday.  School starts this week.  And Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Miskelley, also known as The West Memphis Three, were at long last released from prison.  After nearly eighteen years. 

We supporters have been saying for years that The Three at the very least didn't get fair trials and at most are flat out innocent of the murders they have been accused of.  Freedom from incarceration has been the main goal for years and I am thrilled that the day finally came last Friday.  It is discouraging, however, that Damien, Jason and Jessie had to take an Alford plea in order to secure their releases.  In other words, they had to admit that the State of Arkansas had enough evidence to convict them in a retrial while still maintaining their innocence.  The State of Arkansas, totally speaking out of their ass, claims that they indeed have enough evidence to re-convict in a retrial but released the men, despite their alle…
