Political and internet has a field day

ROB Schneider finally found something more offensive to audiences than “Deuce Bigalow.”

The comedian is under fire for tweeting to Rep. John Lewis over his protest against Donald Trump’s presidency. Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and legendary civil rights activist, said he refuses to attend Trump’s inauguration and told

Meet the Press

that the former reality star isn’t a “legitimate president.”

“Rep. Lewis,” Schneider, 53, tweeted on Monday — which was also Martin Luther King Jr. Day. “You are a great person. But Dr. King didn’t give in to his anger or his hurt. That is how he accomplished & won Civil Rights.”

Supporters of Lewis, 76, quickly sniped back at Schneider on Twitter.

The Hot Chick

Noll was arrested and charged over the assault of a bouncer in the early hours of Sunday morning outside the Crazy Horse Revue on Hindley Street in Adelaide’s CBD.

As more details of the incident emerged on Monday, witness Alastair Longmuir — who was outside the club when he saw the commotion happen — said the former Australian Idol star was “really aggressive”.

“He was yelling and screaming and being really aggressive,” the 19-year-old told AAP.

“He was saying, ‘I’m Shannon Noll. Let me back into the Crazy Horse’.” At some stage Noll allegedly punched a security guard and Mr Longmuir said it was at that point Noll was swiftly taken to the ground by guards before “four policemen pinned him down and took him away in a police car”.

Whats with Amy Locane who killed a woman

Last week, Amy Locane, 45, was spared more jail time after the family of the woman she killed back in 2010 appealed a decision that saw the actress released after serving just 2.5 years.

Locane was three times over the legal limit when she rear-ended into Fred and Helene Seeman’s car in New Jersey.

Mrs Seeman was killed, while her husband was severely injured.

The judge listed the welfare of Locane’s daughters, aged eight and six, as the reason for not imposing a harsher sentence on her. One of them has Crohn’s disease.

“I had worked so hard since 2010 on my sobriety, on adjusting to life in prison, on being released from prison, on acclimating to my children’s lives, and to parole that having to go back would seriously interrupt, if not destroy, any progress I had made in becoming human again,” Locane told nj.com

Locane, who starred as Sandy Harling in Season 1 of Melrose Place and as Allison Vernon-Williams in the movie Cry Baby, said her friends abandoned her while she was in prison.

“Being in prison is almost like witnessing your own death,” she said. “People write to you initially and then they disappear. Then, sometimes you hear from absolute strangers and they tell you to stay strong.”

She said her stint in prison was “dehumanising.”

“You take a shower with 60 other women. You have no privacy. I read a lot of books to distract me from my situation. Guards went through your mail. My girls would send me Mother’s Day cards and the guards wouldn’t let me keep them because they were too large or they contained glitter. Every time I left a visit with my girls, I had to endure a strip search in which I had to strip, squat and cough,” she said.

The time in prison would also take a toll on her marriage to Mark Bovenizer, who served her with divorce papers just months after she was released for jail in June 2015.

In handing down his decision not to send Locane back to prison, Superior Court Judge Robert B. Reed said the actress was a model prisoner and had attended weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings since being let out on parole.

Justin Bieber and chow puppy

The New York Post reports that this time, the short-attention-stricken singer appears to have palmed off his sick dog on a friend, who’s now trying to scrounge up $US8000 ($11,000) for a lifesaving operation for the puppy.

In August last year, Bieber proudly introduced his “new little fluff ball Todd” to his fans on Instagram. Later he posted a video of the preternaturally fluffy animal, wondering adoringly, “How are you real?”

However, the infatuation has passed. It seems that Bieber — who famously adopted and then dismissed a monkey, a hamster and a snake — has given the dog to one of his dancers, C.J. Salvador.

Actually, the person who won the auction to buy Bieber’s snake Johnson, Michael Kronick, slammed the singer at the time.

“I am a huge pet and animal lover and was amazed that Mr. Bieber would actually auction off his own personal pet,” he said. “I found it really disgusting that celebrities like Bieber would stoop to a level of using living creatures as a fashion accessory and then so easily discard it.”

Johnson is now on display the Reptile & Amphibian Discovery Zoo in Owatonna, Minnesota.

Salvador has created a GoFundMe page for the luckless pooch, explaining that the pup “is a 7-month-old chow chow born with a birth defect called ‘sever hip dysplasia.’ Long story short, by the time he turns 1, he won’t be able to walk, run, let alone play.”

Whats Happen with Debbie Reynolds death

CHARLIE Sheen has “defended” himself with choice words from his thesaurus after wishing the death of US President-elect Donald Trump.

The 51-year-old actor, fondly known for his role in TV sitcom Two And A Half Men, tried to take the sting out of any negative media attention or reaction to his tweet made shortly after the news that Debbie Reynolds had become the latest high-profile death of 2016.

Sheen, who revealed that he is HIV positive in November last year, took aim at Trump, who he has dissed many times, in a macabre request to God.

It could be deemed dark humour and it has been retweeted 35,000 times and ‘liked’ 66,000 times but clearly fearing a backlash Sheen felt it necessary to defend himself with a tweet that had many scrambling for the dictionary.

Sheen dished the dirt on Trump on the Graham Norton Show in June, recalling he was dining with his then-wife Brooke Mueller when Trump approached shortly after their marriage.

Trump, according to Sheen, apologised for not making the wedding.

“And I was like, I didn’t invite you,” he joked to Norton.

“He says, ‘but I want to give you an early wedding gift as a gesture from me and Melania’.”

Sheen said Trump then gestured to the cufflinks he was wearing and said these are “platinum, diamond, Harry Winston”, and he said he wanted Sheen to have them.

He claimed he resisted the offer but Trump persisted and gave him his cuff links. Six months later Sheen said he was having jewellery at his home valued and he gave the cuff links to the valuer.

“She spent about four seconds looking at them and kind of recoiled from it, much like people do from Trump, and said ‘in their finest moment, they were cheap pewter and bad zirconia’.

“And they’re stamped ‘Trump’. And I just thought, what does this really say about the man? That he said, here’s a great wedding gift and it turned out to be just a bag of dog sh–.”

Over Adelaide strip club assault

Noll was arrested and charged over the assault of a bouncer in the early hours of Sunday morning outside the Crazy Horse Revue on Hindley Street in Adelaide’s CBD.

As more details of the incident emerged on Monday, witness Alastair Longmuir — who was outside the club when he saw the commotion happen — said the former Australian Idol star was “really aggressive”.

“He was yelling and screaming and being really aggressive,” the 19-year-old told AAP.

“He was saying, ‘I’m Shannon Noll. Let me back into the Crazy Horse’.” At some stage Noll allegedly punched a security guard and Mr Longmuir said it was at that point Noll was swiftly taken to the ground by guards before “four policemen pinned him down and took him away in a police car”.

Hindley Street revellers who saw the incident started singing Noll’s best-known hit.

“As he was thrown to the ground these strangers started singing What About Me to him,” Mr Longmuir said.

On Sunday night, police confirmed a 41-year-old NSW man had been arrested and charged with two counts of assault, and was bailed to appear in Adelaide Magistrates Court in February.

Footage shown on Nine News from the incident shows Noll being questioned by a number of security guards outside the strip club.

Noll had been in South Australia to perform at a music festival in Mannum, east of Adelaide, on Saturday.

His manager David Woodward said there would be no comment in relation to the singer’s arrest or the incident in Adelaide for legal reasons. But he said upcoming tour dates would go ahead, including his scheduled appearance at the Mornington Racecourse on January 21 and 22 as part of the Red Hot Summer Tour.

Billing itself as the ‘Home of Miss Nude Australia’, strip club Crazy Horse Revue “brings you the most luscious international performers,” according to its website.

The singer burst onto the scene back in 2003 when he came runner-up to Guy Sebastian in the first series of Australian Idol. While he hasn’t released an album in six years, in 2016 he launched a new single off the back of his new-found fame as a popular internet meme.
