'New Normal' takes on Jesus' abs

Is it just me or has The New Normal‘s preachiness stopped being so annoying? Yes, the show’s LET-ME-TEACH-YOU-HOW-TO-NOT-BE-HOMOPHOBIC mantra was in full swing in last night’s episode (that tackled the oh-so-easy-to-crystallize-in-22-minutes topic: gays and the church), but for some reason I found it less irritating and more touching than previous issue-laden episodes. Most importantly, tonight showcased the brilliance that is NeNe Leakes (substituting “guinea pig” for “sheep” in a Bible quote? Perfection!) and had its share of wonderful lines.

My five favorites:

Bryan: If I die before I wake…
David: It’s probably due to a huge earthquake. READ FULL STORY

They’ve got spirit, yes they do! They’ve got spirit — how ’bout you?

No, this isn’t a pre-Halloween ghost celebration. Today, tons of lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender folk and their allies are wearing purple in honor of Spirit Day, a GLAAD anti-bullying initiative. Naturally, a passel of celebrities are following suit on Twitter — or at least tweeting their support of the occasion. Here’s a roundup of some of the famous faces participating in the festivities:

Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem on their flirtatious scene in 'Skyfall'

For 50 years, James Bond has been a heterosexual icon, a dashing, promiscuous charmer who rubs elbows — and other body parts — with gorgeous women with names like Pussy Galore and Honey Rider. Yet there’s a scene in Daniel Craig’s latest outing as 007 that adds a new wrinkle to his legendary sexuality.

Craig returns as Bond in next month’s Skyfall, which will see the MI6 agent tangle with Javier Bardem’s feathery-haired villain Silva. The actors were on hand for two separate press conferences yesterday, where they each discussed a charged scene in which Silva runs a hand down Bond’s chest while he’s bound to a chair (see the photo above). 007 takes the caress in stride, responding, “What makes you think this is my first time?” READ FULL STORY

Ben Affleck uses 'Argo' press tour to promote marriage equality -- VIDEO

Way to go, Ben Affleck — you just ruined Reindeer Games for One Million Moms. The actor stopped by Good Morning America today to discuss his upcoming thriller Argo — and before he left the studio, Affleck took a moment to celebrate GMA weather anchor Sam Champion’s recent engagement.

“Oh, I want to congratulate Sam on his upcoming nuptials,” Affleck said as Champion nodded graciously at him from offstage. “It’s to our shame that you can’t get married in every state in the union, but one day I hope you will be able to. It’s very exciting, though. I was very inspired. Moving love story,” the star continued. His stance on marriage should come as no surprise; Affleck has been vocal about his progressive views since 2000, when he urged voters to support Al Gore.

Check out Affleck’s pro-equality message — as well as a clip from Argo featuring several glorious ’70s hairdos — in the clip below.

Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris in new NSFW Rock the Vote ad -- VIDEO

“This election, there are a lot of really important decisions being made that affect marginalized groups in big ways,” Jesse Tyler Ferguson declares in a new Rock The Vote ad.

“Thank you, Jesse. Which is why, as an openly straight man, I implore you to think about people like me as you cast your ballot,” Ferguson’s co-star on Modern Family and recent Emmy-winner Eric Stonestreet continues.

What follows is a whole host of celebrities giving you their best reasons to vote on Nov. 6. Kathy Griffin reminds us that everyone at a polling place is over 18, which means they’re legal. Joel McHale votes because he’s not “a motherf***ing communist” and Jane Lynch tells us that casting a ballot is the best decision you can make. A close second? Getting a One Direction tattoo, like Lynch did.

Bret Easton Ellis thought it would be a good idea to defend Paris Hilton

When somebody calls gay people “disgusting” and says that “most of them probably have AIDS,” the natural human reaction is to agree with them.

Wait — no it isn’t! So what the heck is up with Bret Easton Ellis?

Over the weekend, the controversial writer sent a controversial pair of controversial tweets: “I kind of agree with Paris Hilton,” followed by “As someone who has used Grindr? Paris Hilton isn’t that far off.”

But this isn’t the first time Ellis has antagonized the gay community on Twitter.  READ FULL STORY
