Michael Sam Football Player Made History and Shocked His Father By Coming Out As Gay

LA MARQUE, Texas — Michael Sam, Sr.’s birthday was last Tuesday, which is when his son, Michael, Jr., gave him the biggest surprise of his life.

Michael, Jr. told his father he was gay.

”I was shocked,” Michael, Sr., said. “I’m proud of him. He’s my son.”

The rest of the family, for the most part, found out about the same time the rest of the world did. Sunday night, Michael Sr.’s sister, Geraldine, started getting a bunch of phone calls. People were telling her to turn on ESPN. She didn’t know what was going on. Then the New York Times called. Her nephew, Michael, SEC co-defensive player of the year, was about to become the first openly gay player in NFL history.

”I don’t think anyone in my family knew,” she said. “He’s made history. He really has made history and I’m really proud of him.”

Something in the Sam blood, maybe. Geraldine was the first African-American female mayor in Galveston County when in 2009 she was elected a mayor of La Marque, Texas, in a last-minute upset. Turned out Geraldine, a Republican, was popular with the senior citizens, whose ballots came in at the end that year.

La Marque is a town of 14,509 about 50 miles south of Houston. It exists because of the oil industry, but not much of the wealth generated from that has washed up in La Marque, or its adjacent kid brother, Hitchcock (pop. 6,961), where Michael Sam starred at Hitchcock High School before going to Missouri. Both towns are less than 60 percent white and more than 30 percent black, which gives the area almost three times as many African-Americans per capita as the state as a whole.

That diversity hasn’t resulted in harmony. When Geraldine was elected mayor, somebody called the police station to say they planned to kill her. That brought the FBI in town. She’s heard the N-word plenty. Monday, La Marque terminated a fire department captain after he posted an image of Barack Obama with a noose around his neck on his Facebook page.

For Michael Sam, the world has been a place of chaos and heartbreak. His parents have divorced each other twice. His sister drowned at 2 years old reaching for a doll near a pool. One of his brothers was shot to death, two of his brothers are in prison and one of his brothers disappeared one day.

”They never did find him,” Geraldine said. “I just don’t think they looked for him like they do everyone else. With young black children, they always say they ran away.”

But Michael kept his head. At Hitchcock High, he was a two-star recruit, which if you know anything about recruiting tells you what the scouting services thought of him. A five-star is the best. They don’t even give out single stars.

But Missouri found him, and he turned into a first-team All-American, leading a supposedly under-talented Tigers team to a 12-2 record in Missouri’s second season in the Southeastern Conference. Last summer, Sam told his Tiger teammates about his sexuality and, remarkably, that news more or less stayed in-house.

“Can you imagine the trust and the family atmosphere?” Geraldine said. “For them to keep his secret?”

As NFL Draft season starts to boil, every prospect’s personal life gets ransacked by scouts looking for dirty secrets. The rumors were starting to go around and, Geraldine said, it prompted her nephew to take control of his own story by just coming out with it.

Geraldine says she’d like to think her own experience as a mayor provided her nephew with some of the courage it took to do what he did, but she doesn’t know that. She is pretty sure, however, there’s a toughness in the Sam blood.

”That’s the Sam side of the family,” she said. “I’d like to take a little bit of credit for it.”

She says the Sams are prepared for some backlash. Not everybody will be supportive. But Geraldine figures it’s nothing they can’t handle.

“We’re prepared for those differences of opinion,” she said. “I tell people all the time, if anyone has anything to say negative about him, come see me. I have a word for you. That’s my nephew and I do have his back.”

Actress Pratyusha Banerjee, who recently had to film her cameo part in “Love Dosti Dua” on the BIG Magic channel, ended up causing the filming crew problems when she gave notice of poor health issues.

Bollywood Life reported that the actress was supposed to perform with choreographer-actor Punit Pathak but Pratyusha called someone to call the production crew, citing health issues. Later, the actress’ representative called again and informed the crew that Pratyusha has been hospitalised.

As this was not the actress’ first time doing this, the producers are angry with her as they have wasted the whole day waiting. The company incurred huge losses for not being able to complete filming according to schedule.

In the end, the crew then roped in Ishita Sharma, who is currently hosting “Dance India Dance”, to replace Pratyusha.

Farrah Abraham Set To Release A Hardcore Sex Video

We haven’t seen the last of Farrah Abraham! The former ‘Teen Mom’ star will be back and more hardcore than ever in her upcoming porn video ’Farrah 2: Backdoor & More.’

 

Farrah Abraham is set to release a hardcore follow-up to her 2013 sex tape with porn star James Deen. Farrah will partner up with James once again in Farrah 2: Backdoor & More, which will hit the net on Feb. 13 — just in time for Valentine’s Day!

 

 

 

Farrah Abraham’s Porn Sequel — ‘Teen Mom’ Star To Release 2nd Sex Tape

 

Unlike Farrah’s first film, which she tried to pass off as a “leaked” homemade sex tape, her second venture is being billed as a bona fide porno.

 


The video will feature Farrah using fantasy fetish swings and “getting to know” James Deen all over again.

 

“We have learned there isn’t anything shy about Farrah,” Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch tells Fishwrapper. ”She repeatedly tells the media she’s not a porn star, but she sure acts like one both on and off the screen.”

 

Farrah Abraham: My Sex Tape ‘Ruined My Life’

 

It’s kind of surprising that Farrah was up for round two after she claimed her first sex tape “ruined her life.”

 

Farrah said only a few short weeks ago in January, “It made it hard to have friends and a private life and to trust family, who I feel use me for money. If I went back in time, I would not have done it. The sex tape ruined my life.”

 

So HollywoodLifers, are you surprised that Farrah is coming out with a second porn video? Let us know.

Lady Gaga’s Guilty Pleasure “Russian Hookers and Cheap Gin”

Harper’s BAZAAR chose a rockstar for the cover of their March 2014 issue: Lady Gaga. Photos taken by Terry Richardson, they’re every bit as edgy, cool and sexy as you’d expect.

We love her interview with Harper’s because like Gaga, it’s not very traditional. Filled with rapid-fire questions expected (“What was the first big musical moment in your life?”) and unexpected (“Do you believe in ghosts?”), Gaga’s answers are candid and honest.

When asked what people of the future will think about today’s fashion, Gaga said: “I’m not sure. I imagine that there will be a revival of some of these aesthetics-the more bold ones. Those who have watered down themselves for “sale” might make money now, but they are shortchanging their legend. I always think to myself, How do I want to be remembered? I don’t want to be remembered as anything but brave. The only good intention to make money is to help others. I want to be Oprah. I want to be Melinda Gates. If I ever sell products other than my talents, then it will be to give more to others.”

She told BAZAAR that her home is “like a tiny jewel box, covered in rose-gold mirrors, with an oversize pink couch, an expensive vase, a white Marilyn piano, and a boudoir.” And if you were wondering, yes, she believes in ghosts. “I have many old souls around me all the time.” Her guilty pleasure? “Russian hookers and cheap gin. At least I’m honest.”

Seriously, you have to read this interview!

Sienna Miller says her bad behaviour away from the film set almost scuppered her chances of Hollywood success and that she very nearly “sabotaged” her own career.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Miller, 32,  admits she became more famous for her personal life as she came under intense scrutiny during her relationship with actor Jude Law in 2004.

Janet Hsieh’s Cooking Won The Heart Of Friend Now Boyfriend George Young

Find out how the Taiwanese-American host cooked her way into the heart of her BFF of ten years

“Yeah, it’s me.” George Young casually admitted when asked if the mystery man Janet Hsieh was gushing about to Taiwanese media was indeed him.

The pair has been best friends for ten years, but it wasn’t until earlier this month, on New Year’s Day, that they both started to “see each other differently”. In his first time addressing the rumour since it broke yesterday, George shared with us over a phone interview this afternoon that he was in Taiwan to visit friends and was staying with Janet (their relationship was still purely platonic at that point) when he fell sick – or rather, lovesick.

“Janet looked after me and cooked for me for the first time in a decade, which was amazing,” he raved. “And I just saw this whole other side of her, our friendship moved to another stage, and now we’re dating.”

George Young confirms he’s dating Janet Hsieh

So has he always had a crush on Janet? “She’s an attractive girl and I’ve always admired how grounded she is and how well she relates to people,” George said. “But I never fully opened my eyes and whenever it crossed my mind I would say, ‘But she’s my friend!’. Because of this, I now say to anyone: Keep an eye out, because The One might be in front of you all along.”

Over the weekend, both Janet and George posted separate pictures of themselves at W Hotel, prompting the romance rumours that turned out to be true.

“She was coming to Singapore to see me and since it was her birthday, I had to do something, so I thought it’d be nice to have a surprise getaway at this place we’ve been to a few times,” he said.

George, a self-professed poor surprise planner, concocted the whole scheme with the help of mutual friends and sneaky hotel staff. On the day itself, he invited Janet to the ritzy resort with the pretence of introducing her to a well-known photographer (whose name he made up). When they got to the room, they were greeted by all their friends and a birthday cake. “The surprise worked out and she had a really good time,” he happily reported.

George Young confirms he’s dating Janet Hsieh

Although it’s still a bit early for wedding bells, George said that since they’ve been friends for so long, they’re past the “getting to know each other phase”, but they still have to see how things work out. We quoted Janet’s thoughts on the matter to George (“[I] won’t think so much for now – I’m leaving it all to nature”) and he agreed.

As for children, George “definitely sees that as a potential”, but he doesn’t want to freak Janet out about it yet. “It’s something we’ve talked about, but we’re going to have to get married and sort out the logistics (their different career locations) first, and it’s hard to do that right now.”

In the meantime, the couple will rely on technology – instant messaging, video calls etc. – to keep their long distance relationship going. They’re also planning a trip to the United States later over the Chinese New Year period. “I’ll be in Los Angeles for about a month for work, and she’ll visit for a week and we’ll drive up to San Francisco together.”

Now that the cat’s out of the bag, will we be seeing George’s formal announcement on his various social media platforms – a la Lee Hom – soon? “I’m going to let Janet say something first,” he said. “But we have a few things in mind – you’ll see!”

Joel Chan Breaking Up With Casino Heiress Florinda Ho, His Life Went Downward Spiral

2013 was a bad year for Joel Chan. After breaking up with casino heiress Florinda Ho, his life went into a downward spiral that nobody thought would get back up again. However, the actor, who will be filming a new TVB comeback series with Kenneth Ma, revealed that he is now ready to turn a new leaf.

As reported on Mingpao, Joel recently sat for an interview to talk about his ups and downs after breaking up with Stanley Ho’s daughter in May 2013, and revealed, “When we broke up, I went back to my old residence. A lot of reporters waited for me every day and I couldn’t even walk down the street. Luckily, my mother was there to look after me.”

Joel revealed that he used the time spent at home to ponder about his life, saying, “I have done a lot of things but did not attempt to deal with my problems. I realised that I became a laughing stock and my family had to bear the consequences too.”

However, Joel said that he was able to pick up the pieces and move on, adding, “People rely on the experience of growth, what you gained and what you lost. I could keep on hiding, wearing hats and masks whenever I need to go out, but I can’t do that. It was important for me to raise my head up high. I don’t need to prove to the world about who I am. I’m the only one who can change my life.”

The actor revealed that he began to run as a hobby, going on daily jogs at 5am every day. He also started working at his friend’s company for four months, before he was offered to start his career again through a TVB series, which will be directed by Lee Tim Shing.

However, Joel said he regretted the fact that his family had to bear the effect of his problem. He stated, “I feel so sorry for making my parents worried. Others may say that Joel Chan is a negative person, but that doesn’t mean that I am that person they say I am. I made mistakes, but I have reflected on my past and have let it go. Now I will only look ahead.”

22 year-old singer G.E.M. Tang has finally made it in mainland China, after participating in the Chinese reality singing competition, “I am Singer”, and now are getting more and more attention from mainland productions and sponsors.

According to HK Channel, sources revealed that the singer, whose follow count on Weibo have surpassed 3 million after her participation in the programme, has recently been offered several lucrative deals in the north.

It was reported that not only did she renewed her contract with Maybelline for RMB 1.5 million (approx. USD 247,864), she was also offered to star in several other ads including a make-up brand, a car company, as well as the international beverage brand, Pepsi.

In addition to commercials, the singer was also invited to perform with the main cast members of popular reality show, “Dad, Where Are We Going?” for Hunan TV’s 2014 New Year Gala, as well as movie roles and original soundtrack recordings.

While the singer is currently considering her options, her 21-show world tour is estimated to profit her an additional RMB 12 million (approx. USD 1.98 million).

Overall, the singer is expected to earn as much as RMB 20 million (USD 3.3 million) for 2014.

When asked about the offers in a recent tv-interview, G.E.M did not deny it, and confirmed that she will be performing her Mandarin song “Oh Boy” at the New Year Gala.

However, in terms of the movies, she said, “I am more interested in singing theme songs rather than acting. Acting is not a priority, but music is.”

However, G.E.M said that she will consider a movie if it’s a musical in the likes of Beyonce’s “Dream Girls”.

Despite not being able to attend the launching of his girlfriend Elva Hsiao’s new fashion store, Taiwanese actor Kai Ko still showed his support by uploading a photo of him with the store’s bag.

Patti LaBelle: Called Diva Not Cute Anymore -All These Little Heifers Who Can’t Sing Are Called Divas

Reblogged By: La Tray

Posted: Thursday January 23, 2014 @ 6:17 p.m. PST

 

Philly’s own diva, Patti LaBelle has said that she no longer identifies with the word “diva” because the word is thrown around too loosely, nowadays. Basically, she says that the modern “divas” aren’t fit to be categorized with the word, so she’s looking to shed her diva image. In order to accomplish this, LaBelle called the modern pop stars “little heifers.” Because calling other singers cows is exactly how you should act if you don’t want people to call you a diva.

For you, what does it mean to be a diva?

 

That word is used so loosely that I don’t even consider myself a diva. I always considered myself a woman who sings her heart out and who gives 120 percent. “Diva” is a word that I wouldn’t wanna call myself because it’s so loosely used. It’s not cute anymore.

 

Is there a negative connotation to it now?

 

Yeah, because all these little heifers who can’t sing are called divas! It doesn’t mean anything to me and probably to some of the other ladies who have been doing it for as long as I have: Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick. You know, I’m speaking for me – I don’t know if they like to be called divas – but I know I wouldn’t call them divas, because it’s not in good company.

 

But it used to be a respectable term at some point.

Well, for opera singers, and for ladies who earned it, but that was way, way back when. Now you can look up to them, but you might not see what you wanna see. A hot mess! People who are doing it and doing it with about 40 people on stage with them to hide their pitifulness – that’s not a word, but you know what I mean.

The entire interview is worth a read, though. LaBelle is as entertaining as ever, talking about gay marriage and how her mouth tends to get her into trouble.
