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 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
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
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
Every family has one. Even the Seavers.

Everyone from Hollywood moguls to Barbra Streisand came out last night (so to speak) for the Los Angeles reading of Dustin Lance Black’s play 8, drawn from the transcripts of the federal trial over whether the U.S. constitution allows for Proposition 8 to ban same-sex marriage in the state of California. In the beautiful and historic Wilshire Ebell Theatre, George Clooney, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, and Brad Pitt headlined an A-list cast that read a modified version of the play that was first performed last September in New York City.
“I felt after the New York version that I wanted to know the plaintiffs more, I wanted to know their personal stories more,” Black told EW after the show. READ FULL STORY
