Nelson Mandela's Grandkids Will Crush His Legacy With A Reality Show, But At Least Scientology's Going Down

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | February 8, 2013 | Comments ()


When celebrities try to get political, I usually roll my eyes, and this is no exception. Steven Tyler has introduced a new bill -- "The Steven Tyler Act" -- to the Hawaiian senate and aims to prohibit anyone taking photos of famous people doing familial things. Two thoughts: (1) There will be a lot of upset starlets who would no longer be able to take avantage of having the paps on speed dial; and (2) Let's face it, Steven is just tired of everyone making fun of his Crocs. (Us Weekly)

Here's a little tidbit that will satisfy all you Bush haters out there. Apparently, the entire Bush family collective email server got hacked. While the hacker claims to have uncovered "a lot of stuff" including very "interesting emails," I guarantee there's nothing as entertaining here as what you'll find on Bill Clinton's Grindr account. You know it's true. (The Smoking Gun)


Former Village Voice writer Tony Ortega has released some stunning excerpts of Jenna Miscavige's new book, Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape. If the niece of Scientology's leader received such shocking treatment, you know it's gotta be unbelievably bad for the rest of the Sea Org members too. (Tony Ortega's Underground Bunker)

Don't worry about Marilyn Manson's ongoing health, people. After he vomited and collapsed on a Canadian stage, he says that it's merely a case of the flu. It's good to know that even really faux-evil people are not immune to the hazards of a merciless virus. (TMZ)

Following in the footsteps of the Osbourne and Eastwood families, Nelson Mandela's grandkids decided that it would be a great idea to chase fame in the form of a reality show. The first time Nelson is shown yelling down the hallway for more toilet paper, I'm gonna lose my shit. (Celebitchy)

Amanda Bynes might basically be considered insane by most starlet standards these days, but at least she can call it when she sees it when it comes to Jay-Z's not-so-sexy looks. Dude is not pretty by anyone's standards. (Pop on the Pop)

As much as we all laugh at the Twilight fanfiction culture, these things are continuing to get published and take off at an alarmingly successful rate. Meanwhile, the writers of "X-Files" (Mulder on Scully/Scully on Skinner) and Inglourious Basterds (Aldo on Donny/Hugo on Hans) fanfiction are wondering where it all went wrong. (Jezebel)

Ever since Cindy David posted the amazing Christoph Waltz, Man of Deliciousry column on Monday, the world has surprisingly not been sated. As such, wonderful people have continued to locate lovely photos of the man and put them to great use. (Hey Fraulein, It's Christoph Waltz)

Alison Williams watches her "Girls" sex scenes with her father. This simple yet disgusting fact is useful in floating the general theory that there is at least one person out there in the world who enjoys Lena Dunham's sex scenes more than Alison's. (Warming Glow)


I know this has been a very long time coming, and Lindsay Lohan has looked rough for several years at this point, but chica looks rough. She attended a recent AMFAR benefit in Manhattan and cozied up to Ashley Greene, who subsequently did the friendship walk of shame for fame-hungry starlets. Ashley does have a lot of hustle, but I can't see her going the Lohan route one day. (Lainey Gossip)

Somehow, Spring Breakers posters are still making their newfound presence known, and each batch seems skeevier than the last. Honestly, I don't know how Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens ever thought that acting like slutty criminals in a Harmony Korine/James Franco movie would ever benefit their careers in a tangible manner. (Film Drunk)

There's a creepy Joker storyline called "Death of the Family" that is now all the rage. Whether or not you're into comics, these animated GIFs will probably cause you to tread lightly after you turn out the bedroom lights tonight. (Unreality)

Jason Mewes is still king of the comic book nerds, and Kevin Smith will appear as a judge on "King of the Nerds." These guys are incredibly lucky not only to do what they want to do for a living but also to get paid really well for it. Waterlogged, broken toilets be damned. (Seriously? OMG! WTF?)

Forgive me for making fun of those who take medical marijuana for recreational purposes, but this dude definitely qualifies for that description. I listened to his whole story twice, and I'm not really sure what the hell he's talking about here. Dude blew my mind in a very bad way. Proceed with caution. (The High Definite)

Finally, this last video has been amusing me for the greater part of a week now, so I must share it with you. Apologies if you've seen this one already, but I really do think it's worth a rewatch. Presenting a puppy on a treadmill! (Runner's World)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Treadmill Puppy is going in my names for Indie bands data base.

  • gelis

    I can't really see Bill Clinton having a Grindr account; if ANYONE is into the ladies, it's that guy. Or are there some rumors about him that I'm unaware of?

  • Enrique del Castillo

    I refuse to accept Kevin Smith or Jason Mewes authority! Comic book fanboys should elect our own government!

  • phase10

    Duuude, Kai is national hero. Good thing he was hitching or there wouldabeen a lot more people killed. He should have his own comic book.

    Better stay on the straight and narrow or Kai will Smash, Smash, Suhmash you.

    Seriously, his first statements could easily be part of some kind of anti-bullying video because we all lovable and worthwhile.

  • e jerry powell

    Why do people have treadmills anymore, anyway? Cesar Millan is onto something. Treadmills should only be for homebound companion animals.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    I need to be a pedantic ass here and remind everyone of your highschool civics lessons.

    Legislation is introduced by members of whatever representative body you have in your state (Assembly/State House/etc.)

    Therefore Steven Tyler did NOT introduce any legislation - he has not been elected to office in Hawaii; he may have provided draft language to Senator J. Kalani English that was then turned into an actual bill.

    He's just a public supporter of the bill and the Senator who is actually introducing the bill is using his name to drum up support for it.

  • dizzylucy

    Scientology and fame hungry offspring...thank goodness for puppies.

  • e jerry powell

    No worse than what Fred Phelps's granddaughters are up to lately.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Yay pitbulls! Cute cute cute :)

  • marya

    I feel cheated. Movies have taught me that "Eye of the Tiger" indicates a training montage that ends in success. That puppy never made it on the treadmill! How will I ever find closure?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I'm slightly skeptical of the Miscavige book, *because* she's related to the leader. And if she felt she lacked power or prestige, despite being related to him... well, no one betrays you more violently than family that feels entitled/slighted.

    That being said, Ortega's research has turned up some pretty harrowing stuff. Is Scientology about to have its reckoning? Or survive its first great bout of persecution?

  • BlackRabbit

    Pff. The priest-abuse didn't kill the Catholic Church. Good luck with this making any waves.

  • Jezzer

    *cue Catholic frothing in 3... 2..."

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Actually - Colbert did a brilliant bit on this when he had Lawrence Wright on earlier in the week - worth watching. I'm Catholic too, and there's no point in arguing with facts. But the division between lay people and priesthood isn't as delineated in Scientology - especially not to outsiders - and if it's the Catholic lay people who I think are most outraged by the sex abuse scandal.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Tony Ortega is great. Surprising he's still alive.

  • Mrs. Julien

    What a delightful collection: I'm endlessly fascinated by Scientology; Marilyn Manson has finally had the effect on himself he has on me; and I've learned that Ozzy Osbourne, Clint Eastwood, and Nelson Mandela are closer on the socio-cultural continuum than I ever could have imagined. Reality TV is so democratic!
