Eric Bolling Asks Bill O'Reilly Not to Invoke His Son's Death To Defend Himself Against Sexual Harassment Claims
Hey, happy Monday! Or happy Tuesday! I don’t know your life or what day you’re reading this or where you are in the world. Or when you are in the world.
Stick with me a second here: So, when the NYTimes reported that Bill O’Reilly paid $32 million to settle another sexual harassment lawsuit on the same month that his contract was renewed, they interviewed him for the story. In the audio, an angry O’Reilly lashed out, calling the article “bullshit, berating the reporters. “Why don’t you be human beings for once? This is horrible. It’s horrible what I went through. Horrible what my family went through.” He also said, “I urge you to think about what you put in your newspaper. Eric Bolling’s son is dead (he reportedly committed suicide the day Bolling was fired by Fox News for sexual harassment). He’s dead because of allegations made — in my opinion and I know this to be true— against Mr. Bolling.”
OK, a couple of things: I know it’s obvious, but it bears repeating: No one did this to Bill O’Reilly and his family except Bill O’Reilly. Two: Bill O’Reilly’s children hated him long before any of this. They hated him because he was abusive and reportedly dragged their mother down a staircase by her neck.
Finally, Eric Bolling himself asked O’Reilly not to drag his son into this. “I believe it is beyond inappropriate for anyone to bring in the tragic death of my son Eric Chase Bolling,” he wrote in a statement to the Times. “Just as Bill O’Reilly had wanted to shield his children from the allegations against him, I hope he will honor my request and avoid any future mentions of my son.” (The Daily Beast)

George Michael’s “Freedom” video may have been my first clue to myself that I wasn’t as low on the Kinsey scale as I thought. Cindy Crawford recalls her bathtub scene and I recall my reaction to said scene. - (Celebitchy)

You could take those hats and then burn them in your fire pit full of SKULL FIRE LOGS! OMFG, how cool are these? They’re not cheap, but man they are so wicked looking! - (PopSugar)
I get that acting is about *acting* like you’re the character/person you’re portraying and make-up and wigs can help one look the part more, buuuuuuuuuut then also, just in general, why the hell would Renee Zellweger be cast as Judy Garland in a biopic? -(Dlisted)
Genre movies don’t really get nominated for Oscars, especially thrillers, but Get Out shouldn’t be considered “just a thriller” or “just an anything” really. - (Lainey)
A horrible(ly funny) person named Jesse McLaren hid images of Pennywise in all of the pictures he took for his sister’s engagement photos.
My sister asked me to shoot her engagement pics so I hid Pennywise the Clown in every photo. Countdown until she notices. pic.twitter.com/Z7QZPsq2ym— Jesse McLaren (@McJesse) October 22, 2017

Sarah_jwh was looking for a fun audiobook. Already a Julia Quinn fan, What Happens in London was a good choice for a stress-free escape. There’s a curious lady, a spy, a Russian prince, and a grumpy butler. "It isn’t groundbreaking or amazing, but it’s well written and has an interesting story with characters you can care about, which is what I’m looking for in escapist fiction right now." What kind of book do you like to use as an escape? (Cannonball Read 9)
