Anderson Cooper

Roseanne Barr goes on Thanksgiving Twitter rant against Oprah, Anderson Cooper, Kendall Jenner, Walmart etc.

Leave it to Roseanne Barr to take Thanksgiving and flip it on its head, using the holiday as an opportunity to expound upon all the things she is completely unthankful for. The 61-year-old comedian and actress is in the midst of a 24-hour Twitter rant against everything from capitalism to the people involved with her new, apparently soon-to-be non-existent, sitcom with negative commentary on such wide-ranging targets as Anderson Cooper, capitalism, Walmart and Oprah Winfrey — all while confessing “Yes, I do have mental health issues.” (Strangely, she seems to support fellow celebrity meltdown artist Alec Baldwin.)

Big Brother 15’s Elissa Slater got a bridezilla intervention from Kim Zolciak on Anderson

It’s a tangled web TV can weave and this post is about as good an example as I can think of. What had been rumored in Big Brother forums for a while was verified when it was announced last week that former winner Rachel Reilly’s sister, Elissa Slater, would be cast for season 15. While her relationship to the polarizing champ made most of the headlines, it turns out that sister Elissa has been on TV before. During a May, 2012 episode of Anderson Live about bridezillas, Slater won a trip to Mexico (if America’s votes have much influence – this could hurt her for sure). Watch Elissa’s past TV experience and let us know if you think that being Rachel’s sister (she says she doesn’t intend on hiding that fact if she’s asked) and having won a big prize via TV previously will hurt her chances in the game.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT Madonna’s full speech at GLAAD Media Awards in boy scout uniform

Madonna was on hand at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards to present the organization’s prestigious Vito Russo Award to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who came out last year. (Film historian Vito Russo, who passed away in 1990, was one of the first in the industry to recognize and raise awareness of the importance of how the LGBT community is portrayed in the media.) Madonna did not disappoint with her speech, nor did she disappoint with her attire, as she wore a slightly modified boy scout uniform to present the award.
