Lea Thompson Backs Up Mean Behavior Claims on Ellen Show

The Ellen DeGeneres saga continues to devolve, and now people are starting to back up all the allegations about the so-called horrible meanness associated with the show and the host.

This time it’s Lea Thompson backing up Brad Garrett.

“True story. It is,” wrote Thompson in a tweet on Friday after news reports indicated the show is now the subject of an investigation of “staff experiences on set” by WarnerMedia, according to the Daily Mail

You can read more, here. DeGeneres is trying hard to do damage control.

I do recall reading about other mean talk show hosts in books and memoirs, especially one in particular. I won’t say her name, but I think it begins with a great big O. And she’s grand. But it’s not something I’ve ever seen carry over into the mainstream. They usually keep these things quiet in Hollywood. Apparently, in this era of full disclosure, Ellen didn’t get as lucky, allegedly.

Gays Having Less Sex Thanks to COVID

Well this seems to be surprising some people. I’m not shocked. I knew gay men who stopped having sex altogether for years during the height of AIDS. Gay men were terrified then, and they’re terrified now. If I were single right now I wouldn’t be trusting anyone.

Researchers in Australia have announced the results of a study on gay men’s sexual habits during the coronavirus pandemic. The conclusion: men report having 12 times less sex than during happier days.

Here’s more of the details



“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

Altered Parts

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
