Winning? Is Amanda Bynes 'Doing A Charlie Sheen?'


Amanda Bynes Charlie Sheen RuPaul Rihanna Chris Brown

Amanda Bynes latest Twitter rant was levelled squarely at drag queen RuPaul, whom the television star described as being as ugly as her father. Bynes had begun the day by referring to writers at People magazine as "faggots," saying, ""Um, Peoplemag Hello? I'm not lost and alone! W H A T T H E F * C K A R E Y O U T A L K I N G A B O U T ? Follow me on twitter you faggots!"

Though she quickly deleted the tweet, RuPaul caught a glimpse of it, replying, "Derogatory slurs are ALWAYS an outward projection of a person's own poisonous self-loathing @AmandaBynes." Of course, Amanda took the bait and responded to RuPaul with a wave of abuse, saying, "My dad is as ugly as RuPaul! So thankful I look nothing like you both! I had nose surgery after my mug shots so my nose and I are gorgeous!"

RuPaul is known for her strong stance on derogatory slurs and told the Huffington Post's Gay Voices last year, "[I]n the ACT UP age we called ourselves queers because we earned the right, we took the word back. But in reality, once you go even deeper, you know, you have to come from intent. And black folks call themselves the n-word all the time. It's because the intent is coming from a place of love. If the intent is coming from a place of hatred, that's different"

Sahara Davenport Dead; Reality World In Shock


RuPaul

Reality TV star Sahara Davenport, real name Antoine Ashley, has died, according to The Daily Mail. Davenport appeared on RuPaul's reality show Drag Race on season two of the American show. He came seventh in the season, but this springboard helped him to make a go of a music career.

A statement by Logo, who put out Drag Race, read: "Logo is profoundly saddened by the passing of Antoine Ashley who fans around the world knew and loved as Sahara Davenport. He was an amazing artist and entertainer who'll be deeply missed by his Logo family. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family, especially his boyfriend Karl, in their time of need."

There is some confusion about the age of Ashley when he passed away, with numbers between 27 and 32 being claimed, neither has the cause of his death been made public. RuPaul himself led the tributes, writing on Twitter "Shocked & heartbroken over @SaharaDavenport. Never occurred to me that we'd ever lose one of my girls. I see them as immortal." Meanwhile his fellow season two contestant JuJu Boston wrote "A beautiful angel has been added to Heaven. Rest in peace my sweet friend. We will miss you, Sahara Davenport."


Drag Race Star Sahara Davenport Dies, Cause Of Death Unconfirmed


RuPaul

Sahara Davenport, star of RuPaul’s Drag Race, has died. Huffington Post have reported on the news, after rumors of his death began to surface today (October 2, 2012). Details of Davenport’s death have yet to be released, though the news that he has passed away has been confirmed by several people close to him, including RuPaul and the Drag Race judge Michelle Visage.

The Logo Network, who screen Drag Race, released a statement to say “Logo is profoundly saddened by the passing of Antoine Ashley who fans around the world knew and loved as Sahara Davenport. He was an amazing artist and entertainer who'll be deeply missed by his Logo family. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family, especially his boyfriend Karl, in their time of need.” Wikipedia lists Davenport’s age as 27 but according to Huffington Post, he may actually have been 32, as a New York Times piece dated from 2009 said that he was 29 at the time.

In that interview, Davenport explained why he had moved to New York, to find fame and fortune: “I had to build my name here by doing talent nights, talent competitions and networking and meeting all the working girls and figure out how to work this animal of New York City. The New York scene is so much bigger than in Dallas.” On Twitter, RuPaul played tribute to Antoine by saying “Shocked & heartbroken over @SaharaDavenport. Never occurred to me that we'd ever lose one of my girls. I see them as immortal.


Starrbooty Review


Bad
RuPaul, RuPaul, where to begin? This sister's been doin' it for herself for more than 20 years now, and as drag queens go, she's among the funniest, most mainstream, and, it must be acknowledged, well preserved. Those legs go on forever. However, Starrbooty, Ru's self-produced do-it-yourself star vehicle -- her Mahogany you might say -- is a big, candy-colored misfire that will have you alternately groaning and averting your eyes.

Riffing on classic Pam Grier blacksploitation themes, Starrbooty's star, Starrbooty, is a "secret agent" who has returned to her "agency" to discover that her niece has been abducted by her nemesis Annaka Manners (Candis Cayne, another trannie). In order to penetrate Annaka's sleazy demimonde, Starrbooty will have to go deep undercover as a down and dirty hooker and troll the streets of New York's Meatpacking District. Coming along to help is her best friend Page Turner (Lahoma Van Zandt), another agent well schooled in whoring for information.

But I'm A Cheerleader Review


Weak
Take director John Waters and give him a really good actress like Natasha Lyonne, a paltry budget of, say, $1 million, and ask him to make a satire about a "gay rehab camp," and you might come up with something like But I'm a Cheerleader.

Then again, Waters might have come up with something funny, like Pecker. With such a meaty topic as Family Values ripe for a send-up, you'd think it would be easy to milk Cheerleader for comic value. Unfortunately, first-time feature director Jamie Babbit (whose few credits including directing the MTV series Undressed and acting as script supervisor on The Game) doesn't appear to have much ability behind the camera, which becomes painfully apparent after only a few minutes.

Who Is Cletis Tout? Review


Bad
Watching Tim Allen's career slowly slip into oblivion is a cineaste's masochistic delight. After a slew of bad choices in the past few years - including Joe Somebody, Big Trouble, and Jungle2Jungle - Tim Allen is slowly heading into those dangerous waters involving films starring Christian Slater. Like Robin Williams, he wants to break out of his goofball typecasting, but it just isn't taking.

A hodgepodge about two escaped convicts searching for a cache of diamonds, a hitman with a "heart of gold" who only speaks in movie quotes (complete with the movie's production studio), a standard ingénue/love interest, two bumbling mob boys, and the typical overworked police detective - the whole thing spirals into one of the most blatant Tarantino clones I've seen.
