Mother of gay Flight 93 hero responds to Carson Daly's JetBlue joke: 'Gay men and women come in every shape and size'

Carson Daly has already apologized for what many, including GLAAD, deemed an offensive joke while discussing the recent JetBlue incident in which passengers had to subdue their pilot after he had an inflight meltdown. But Alice Hoagland, mother of Mark Bingham — one of the passengers who charged the cockpit of hijacked Flight 93 on the morning of 9/11 — would like to remind everyone, including Daly, that stereotyping gay men is wrong.

On his morning radio show Wednesday, Daly had said, “It turns out on this particular [JetBlue] flight, most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas…. There was a bunch of dudes and well-trained dudes. What are the odds of that? …. Thank god…. My luck, it would be like, ‘This is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco’ …. I mean, that would be my colleagues…. ‘Uh, we’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.’…. ‘Can we get a little help up here with the pilot?’ ‘Oh, Nooo!’…. ‘No thank you. Handle it.'”  READ FULL STORY

On the Scene at the GLAAD Media Awards: We were THIS close to seeing John Stamos and Cory Monteith kiss

Laughs, tears, high-kicks, and John Stamos: The Oscars should look to last night’s snappy GLAAD Media Awards in New York City to energize their own ceremony. A whole lot of high heels, patent leather, and sequins packed into the Marriott Marquis in Times Square to honor the people and projects that put forth “the most outstanding images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in the media” (see a full list of winners here).

Although the most tweeted moment of Saturday night’s ceremony was certainly Full House and Broadway star John Stamos bidding thousands of dollars to kiss Glee star Cory Monteith (more on that later), it’s hard to single out one moment as the most memorable. READ FULL STORY

Kathy Griffin takes to Facebook to talk about 'extremely invasive' surgery, mortality

Kathy Griffin’s assistant Tiffany Rinehart has been posting messages on Griffin’s Facebook today about the comedian’s impending surgery for a uterine polyp. Of course the comedian didn’t miss a minute to use surgery — which Tiffany assures will be minor and outpatient — to plug her forthcoming Bravo talk show and bring the melodrama: “I’m probably going to pass away… my chances of making it are very, very slim,” she deadpanned. See Griffin’s hysterical video (wordplay!), entitled “Kathy discusses her vagina surgery,” below. READ FULL STORY

Kirk Cameron tells 'Today' he's not a bully, says he loves 'all people'

Kirk Cameron wants us to all to know that he loves “all people” and hates “no one.” In fact, he’s not guilty of hate speech at all, the Growing Pains star said in an appearance on the Today show this morning. The devout Christian and father of six stopped by to talk about his new movie Monumental and try to put out the fire started by his recent controversial comments about homosexuality.

“When you take a subject and reduce it to a four-second sound bite and a checkmark on a ballot, I think that’s inappropriate and insensitive,” he said of how he unintentionally ignited the controversy. In fact, Cameron stands by his comments and insists he’s not a bully. See his thoughts on the uproar in the full interview below. READ FULL STORY

'RuPaul's Drag Race' disqualified contestant speaks out: 'I wasn't caught doing anything'

Well, no one saw this one coming — except for maybe Willam herself.

“Will you please step forward?” RuPaul asked the controversial queen at the very end of last night’s new episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, sending what should have been the routine elimination of Phi Phi O’Hara or Sharon Needles into a totally different — and weird — direction.


Charlize Theron: Keeping the Fassbender Package Punchline Watch alive


Did you think the end of awards season meant no more inappropriate jokes about Michael Fassbender’s Little Mickey? If so, you were wrong. Leave it to fellow 2012 Oscar snubee (and new mom) Charlize Theron to revive that most illustrious institution: The Michael Fassbender Package Punchline Watch.

At this weekend’s Human Rights Campaign gala, both Prometheus costars were in attendance. During her acceptance speech for the Ally for Equality Award, Theron told Fassbender (who presented the award to her), “Your penis was a revelation. I’m available to work with it any time.” We can only assume she was talking about his work in Shame and not just making a general statement. READ FULL STORY

Kirk Cameron to ABC News: 'I should be able to express moral views on social issues'


Four days after calling homosexuality “unnatural,” “detrimental,” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization” during an appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight, actor Kirk Cameron has responded to the criticism that erupted following his remarks. In an e-mail to ABCNews.com today, Cameron wrote, “I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people.”

“I should be able to express moral views on social issues,” he said, “especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.” READ FULL STORY

Alan Thicke and Tracey Gold react to Kirk Cameron's controversial statements

Every family has one. Even the Seavers. Members of Kirk Cameron’s Growing Pains family, including Alan Thicke and Tracey Gold, are among those in Hollywood disappointed to hear what Mike Seaver has turned into. Cameron, a born-again Christian, has recently come under fire for making controversial statements about homosexuality. The 41-year-old actor/writer/director told CNN’s Piers Morgan he thought homosexuality is “unnatural,” adding, “I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
