Michael Phelps Opens Up About Retirement and Mental Health Awareness: ‘I Struggle Through Problems Just Like Everybody Else’

Now, when 28-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps swims butterfly, it’s usually for an audience of one. When his 2-year old son Boomer waves his arms in imitation of the stroke, he knows what the toddler wants to see. “He knows the motion of the butterfly,” says Phelps. “So I do a couple of laps.”

Since leaving competitive swimming after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero, Phelps has been enjoying retirement in Arizona with his wife Nicole and sons Boomer and Beckett, seven months. He’s also become an advocate for water conservation (he’s in his second year as global water ambassador for Colgate, working to remind people to turn off the faucet while brushing their teeth) and mental health awareness, and has openly discussed his struggle with depression.

“For me to know there are a lot of people out there in the world who are struggling the same exact way I do still struggle and have struggled — I’m a human being. But I was so used to compartmentalizing everything,” he says. “Being an athlete you’re supposed to be this strong person who doesn’t have weaknesses, doesn’t have any problems. No, that’s wrong. I struggle through problems just like everybody else does. I wanted to open up and just talk about it. It is what makes me who I am.”

Phelps says he now sees the “red flags popping up when I’m starting to go down that path,” and knows when to reach out to his wife or therapist. “Communication is something I really just learned, just to be completely wide open,” he says. “I joke that I learned how to communicate when I’m 30. But I did. And it’s better late than never.”

Those skills are making the connections he has with the U.S. national swim team stronger as well; he admits that at the first of his five Olympic Games, he probably wasn’t as approachable as he was during his last Olympics in Rio. “I think it’s crazy that in the four previous Games people did not reach out to me because I was probably a little different, and hard to approach then,” he says. “But going into [the 2016 Games] I was able to kind of relax, let my guard down a little bit and enjoy the experience. It was the first time I ever talked to everybody on the national team. That might be why I’m being approached more, and I like that. I want to help continue to grow the sport.”

It’s a new role for Phelps, who welcomes the responsibility, and applauds other athletes who are using their visible positions to advocate for issues that are important for them. “For me, to be able to have that power, to have people listen to you and to open up and speak about things that are important to me whether that is mental health or saving water; that’s amazing,” he says. “I never thought people would sit and listen to me, or care about what I was saying. It’s pretty incredible to have that voice and be able to spread my message as loud as I can to get people to really open up, understand what is actually going on and what we are doing to the world we live in, no matter what it is.”

Just don’t expect him to be racing again at the next Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. Now, he just laps the pool as an escape. “It’s the only time it’s peaceful, quiet and I can escape in my own head and let go of whatever I need to let go of,” he says. “I always thought of myself as a swimmer and that’s it. Now I try to think of myself more as a human. And that’s a good way to live.”

Michael Bloomberg’s Views on #MeToo Could Threaten a 2020 Presidential Run as a Democrat

Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg hasn’t denied that he’s considering a 2020 run for president. But Bloomberg, currently an independent, could change his party registration if he goes forward with the candidacy.

In a new interview with The New York Times, Bloomberg said, “It’s impossible to conceive that I could run as a Republican.” Instead, Bloomberg may run as a Democrat, although he admitted that it’s “not to say I’m with the Democratic Party on everything, but I don’t see how you could possibly run as a Republican.”

Nevertheless, it’s precisely his stance on a number of hot-button Democratic issues that might make a presidential run an uphill battle for Bloomberg.

On sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement, Bloomberg declined to stand firmly behind the accusers. “The stuff I read about is disgraceful,” Bloomberg said, but he quickly added: “I don’t know how true all of it is.”

Speaking specifically about the allegations raised against former CBS anchor Charlie Rose, who broadcast his show from the Bloomberg office, Bloomberg simply claimed that “we never had a complaint,” noting that he was “surprised.” “I never saw anything and we have no record, we’ve checked very carefully,” he told The Times.

But it could be Bloomberg’s views on policing that prove to be the biggest divider between him and Democrats that fall farther to the left. While Bloomberg conceded that there have been “outrageous” cases of police abuse and shootings, he remained steadfast in his commitment to stop-and-frisk and in his conviction that it helped lower New York’s murder rate.

The policy is largely seen to disproportionately target black and brown men, with a federal district judge ruling in 2013 that it had been carried out in an unconstitutional way. What’s more, studies have found that there is no tangible correlation between stop-and-frisk and a reduction in crime. But Bloomberg sees no civil rights problems with the policy; instead, he told The Times, “I think people, the voters, want low crime. They don’t want kids to kill each other.”

For now, Bloomberg hasn’t committed to seeking office. He’s prioritizing supporting Democratic candidates in the November midterms, after which time he says, “I’ll take a look at it.”

Studio Eyeng Michael B. Jordan To Replace Henry Cavill As Superman!

(Photo Credit: PR Photos)

Are you ready for a Black Superman played by Michael B. Jordan?

The actor is reportedly among a shortlist of performers being considered to replace Henry Cavill.

THR first posted on Wednesday that it’s a wrap on Cavill as Superman in the Warner Bros. films. But studio sources and his manager cautioned that wasn’t necessarily the case (“the cape is still in his closet”). Either way, the report states, Cavill isn’t contracted for any new Superman projects and DC Films is already looking ahead to who might be the next Man of Steel.

One contender is reportedly the Black Panther and Fantastic Four star.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is considering going in a completely different direction with the next installment and that includes considering casting a black actor as Superman for the first time, specifically Jordan.

The initial report of Cavill’s departure states that the studio won’t put out another Superman movie for several years. Instead, it will focus on the Supergirl movie that is currently in development.

Cavill played Superman three times in the DC Comics movie universe and his departure reportedly comes after talks failed between his agency and Warner Bros. over a cameo appearance in the upcoming Shazam movie, per comicbook.com.

What do you think of Michael B. Jordan as Superman? Let us know in the comments!

Could ‘American Horror Story’s Michael Langdon Be Both Antichrist and Supreme?

US viewers got their first glimpse of a grown-up Michael Langdon when American Horror Story: Apocalypse premiered this week. Season 8 of the long-running anthology horror series is a unique proposition, which continually brings back the same cast members in later seasons… usually in different roles. However, creators Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy have long acknowledged that the seasons are linked, and Apocalypse is set to be an overt crossover between Season 1, Murder House, and Season 3, Coven. It will feature characters and other elements from both seasons – starting in Episode 1, entitled “The End”, with Michael Langdon — who is going to be pivotal to the events of Season 8.

Who is Michael Langdon?


American Horror Story Murder house
The young Michael Langdon with grandmother Constance in Murder House.

Michael Langdon is the child of Murder House’s Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton), conceived when she was raped by the ghost of Tate Langdon (Evan Peters). Remember him dressed in that rubber S&M suit? Of course you do. Anyway, the foetus killed its twin in the womb, which was conceived as a result of superfecundation, or fertilization by the sperm of two different fathers. The second twin, Vivien’s husband Ben’s (Dylan McDermott) child, was stillborn — and because the unborn baby’s death occurred inside the ‘Murder House’, it returned as a ghost. Meanwhile, the surviving offspring – Michael — was taken in by the next-door neighbour, Tate’s mother, Constance (Jessica Lange), after Vivien died during childbirth and Ben was killed by the house’s ghosts.

We learned from Sarah Paulson’s medium Billie Dean Howard that the baby could be the Antichrist. She told Constance about the phenomenon of the Pope’s Box, a locked receptacle containing the details of the end of the world, which would be ushered in by the Antichrist who would be the offspring of a human and spirit.

The finale of Murder House jumps forward three years, and we see Constance return home to discover the nanny apparently murdered by toddler Michael, who is smothered in blood and grinning. This is the last time we saw Michael, who returns in Apocalypse to play a major role in the End of Days.

Why Could He Be the Next Supreme?


american-horror-story-fearful-pranks-ensue.04-Fearful-Pranks-Ensue-Promotional-Photos-11_FULL
Sarah Paulson as Cordelia Goode with Jessica Lange as Fiona Goode in Coven.

During Season 1, Constance drops the names of distant cousins Eveline and Steve DeLongpre from Virginia as the family from whom she adopted Michael when weaving the story of how she came to have a baby. As Constance’s grandchild, Michael is a Langdon, and so Eveline and Steve — if they exist — are blood relations of his.

The name DeLongpre is one which recurred in Coven: a certain Mimi DeLongpre was once a Supreme. With Coven demonstrating that the qualities and powers required for the role of the Supreme Witch can potentially run in families – Sarah Paulson’s Cordelia Goode succeeded her mother Fiona (Jessica Lange) as Supreme – it’s possible that Michael could possess the necessary powers too, as a descendant of Mimi.

But wait, aren’t Supremes always women? As far as we know, yes. But with rumblings that Miss Robichaux’s Academy has opened its doors to magical men, it adds credence to the notion that Michael could take on the mantle of Supreme. And even if he doesn’t become chief witch, if he has any of the powers that his possible distant relative possessed, he’d be a very powerful proposition indeed in combination with his status as the Antichrist.

 So what’s his role in Apocalypse?


American Horror Story: Apocalypse
Cody Fern as Michael Langdon.

We caught a glimpse of a grown-up Michael Langdon at the end of Episode 1 of the new season. He rolls up, horse and carriage-stylee, to Outpost 3, where survivors of the nuclear attack witnessed at the start of the premiere are stationed. 18 months have passed and sustenance is apparently dwindling at Sarah Paulson’s Wilhelmina Venable-run fallout bunker. The assembled group of wealthy occupants and specially selected chosen ones are concerned about what’s next, and the shady Ms Venable greets their visitor. Langdon is a representative of the mysterious ‘Cooperative’ organisation behind the evacuation. He claims to have been “assigned to evaluate the people here and select the ones most worthy of survival.” We’re told that they’re the last remaining humans after survivors in other Outposts perished.

“I could take all of you, or none of you,” he says. “Those who make it live, those who don’t end up like my horses.” The horses, incidentally, were shot outside by lackeys after succumbing to the nuclear fallout. Langdon’s ultimate motives are unclear, but the Circle of Hell theory that’s been bandied about for some time – and which Ryan Murphy once shared on Twitter – could hold the key.

The Eighth Circle of Hell

According to the theory, the Eighth Circle of Hell was explored in Season 2, Asylum. In the Eighth Circle, according to Dante’s Inferno, fraud is punished. But could the eighth season of AHS actually correspond with the Eighth Circle?

The Eighth Circle is known as ‘Malebolge’, which translated means something akin to ‘evil ditches’. The Eighth Circle is a large, funnel-shaped cavern divided into ten concentric circular ‘ditches’, or trenches, or – dare we say – underground bunkers. We know from Episode 1 that there are ten outposts in total. Could Apocalypse be a literal representation of the Eighth Circle of Hell? And after Michael is done assessing the occupants of Outpost 3, will he take those that “pass the test” onto the Ninth Circle? Is everybody already dead? We’ll find out more as the season progresses.

Why Does Michael Look Like Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire?

Apart from Cody Fern’s Michael Langdon bringing a touch of gothic horror to proceedings, we don’t really know. Suffice to say that Ryan Murphy reportedly tweeted “Eyes like his Dad…Hair like his Mom”. That doesn’t explain the outfit, of course. But we dig it.

On that, though, there’s some confusion over why Langdon appears as a fully grown man if the show is set in 2019. He’d still be a boy if he was governed by the usual laws of nature according to the timeline of American Horror Story. So we’re guessing that the supernatural/demonic aspect of him is responsible for his accelerated growth. After all, even though he was about three years old at the end of Murder House in line with the passage of time, we do know that he developed at an alarmingly fast rate in the womb. With this in mind, it could be that he’s arrived at fully-grown Antichrist outside of the normal development rate for a human child. We don’t yet know the rules governing the Antichrist within the AHS universe, but if Langdon is immortal, he’d have parallels with Cruise’s Lestat that would include longevity as well as, perhaps, fashion sense.

Michael Cohen Tweets Appreciation for Birthday Wishes and Go Fund Me Donations

President Donald Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen turned 52 Saturday, just four days after pleading guilty to eight counts of tax fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations. In his first tweet since that development, Cohen thanked his supporters on Sunday for their birthday wishes, as well as their contributions to his Go Fund Me page.

It’s been quite a week for the president’s former personal lawyer. On Wednesday, his own lawyer, Lanny Davis, launched a Go Fund Me page for Cohen, with all donations going “to help Michael Cohen and his family as he goes forward on his journey to tell the truth about Donald Trump.”

When pleading guilty, Cohen said Trump directed him to pay hush money to two women with whom the then-presidential candidate had previously had affairs. Trump denies the affairs, but admits to knowing about at least one of the payments.

Being one of the first of Trump’s previously close affiliates to flip on the president, Cohen’s statements have gotten a lot of attention. With the Go Fund Me page, Cohen seems to be turning that attention towards the payment of his legal fees.

The fund raised $ 21,000 within its first nine hours. At the time of this article’s publication, the “Michael Cohen Truth Fund” had surpassed $ 161,500.

Happy birthday to you, Cohen.

A 10-Year-Old Named Clark Kent Has Flown Past a Michael Phelps Record

Ten-year-old swimmer Clark Kent Apuada of California has grabbed attention in his sport after finishing first in seven events at the Far West International Swimming Championship, and breaking Michael Phelps‘s own record in the 100-meter butterfly, a record set by the all-time-winningest Olympian back in 1995. And Phelps himself has already become a fan of the young athlete with the famous name.

“Most people just call me Clark, but now when I beat Michael Phelps’ record, they start calling me Superman,” the burgeoning aquatic superstar told CBS News. (Soon, they might also be calling him Aquaman, given the nature of his powers.)

His coach further told CBS that the swimmer is interested in being “a scientist, an Olympic gold medalist for the United States, and a black belt. He’s on track for all of those things.” No big deal.

While the soonest that Apuada could think about heading to the Summer Olympics is 2024 in Paris, France — at which point he will be 16 — Phelps himself already has an eye on the aspiring champion.

“Big congrats to #clarkkent for smashing that meet record,” Phelps tweeted on Tuesday. “Keep it up dude!” (Luckily for everyone involved, Phelps’s own progeny — including two-year-old Boomer and new baby Beckett — may already be practicing in the pool with their famous dad, but they won’t be eligible for Olympic competition until at least 2032 and 2036, respectively.)

3 theories on what, exactly, Michael Cohen is trying to do

What we know: This is the week that Michael Cohen officially declared war on Donald Trump. From the release of a secretly recorded tape of the two men talking about a potential payout related to former Playboy model Karen McDougal to the bombshell accusation that Trump knew about the much-discussed June 2016 meeting between his top campaign officials and a group of Russians, Cohen seems absolutely dead-set on breaking very, very publicly with Trump.

Michael Cohen’s Tape Sounds Like He Could Bring Down Trump

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

The release of a secretly recorded conversation between Michael Cohen and Donald Trump about a proposed secret payment to one of Trump’s supposed mistresses goes a long way towards a potential criminal charge for both men.

The tape captures Cohen and Trump discussing setting up a shell corporation to pay “David” (presumably David Pecker, who owns the National Enquirer’s parent company, AMI) for the rights to Karen McDougal’s story that was acquired by AMI in a “capture and kill” move: AMI purchased exclusive rights to the damaging story of Trump’s affair and didn’t run it. 

Lanny Davis, one of Cohen’s lawyers, told CNN that he released the recording to show that Trump lawyer Rudolph Giuliani lied last week when he claimed that Cohen raised the idea of paying cash.  Davis claims that the recording clearly shows Trump proposing the idea of paying “cash,” while Giuliani continues to dispute this.

Michael Cohen Hires Former Clinton Aide Lanny Davis

Michal Cizek/Getty

Washington, D.C. lawyer Lanny Davis, best known for his work for the Clinton White House, is now representing Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney. Davis confirmed the news, which was first reported on Twitter by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, to The Daily Beast.

Cohen has not been charged with any crimes, but his legal problems have escalated dramatically over the past few months. In April, FBI agents raided his home, hotel room, and office in Manhattan. Lengthy court proceedings followed to determine what documents—some of which had been put through a shredder—were subject to attorney-client privilege. A court-appointed special master ultimately assessed that the feds could take a whopping 1.3 million items to potentially use as evidence, as USA Today reported.

ABC News released a lengthy interview with Cohen on the day that news broke. It was his first major public conversation since his legal problems materialized, and in it, he suggested that he would be open to cooperating with investigators.

Joe Jackson buried at same cemetery as late son Michael as daughter Janet leads mourners

JOE Jackson, the father of Michael Jackson, has been buried in the same cemetery as his late superstar son.

Daughter Janet led mourners at the pop patriarch’s private funeral service on Monday.

Joe Jackson has been buried in a private funeral service in Southern California at the same cemetery as his late son Michael

A source close to the famous family said Joe was laid to rest Monday at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Southern California.

Jackson died last Wednesday aged 89 of stage 4 pancreatic cancer and is survived by wife Katherine, eight children and dozens of grandchildren.

He is credited as being the brains behind the Jackson 5 group which launched his son’s pop career.

Eldest son Jackie Jackson posted a photo of himself on Instagram Monday afternoon in a black suit and sunglasses while dressing one of his young twin sons in a similar suit.

Michael Jackson was entombed in 2009 in the mausoleum at the opulent cemetery that is also the final resting place of Elizabeth Taylor and Walt Disney.

TMZ reported Jackson had suffered health problems for many years, with trips to hospital in 2015 and 2016 for heart attacks and high fevers respectively.

Just days before his death, Joe sent his last tweet, featuring himself looking out across a sunset.

He captioned it: “I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see. The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.”

Jackson was the patriarch of one of entertainment’s most famous families and disciplined his talented kids with an iron fist.

His methods produced the Jackson 5, the King of Pop in son Michael and also helped his daughter Janet sell over 100 million records worldwide.

Michael later claimed he was so terrified of his father he would throw up at the sight of him.
Jackson fathered 10 children with his wife Katherine. As well as the Jackson 5 – Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael – he sired Rebbie, Randy, La Toya and Janet.
Brandon was born in 1957 but died within 24 hours.

An eleventh child, Joh’Vonnie Jackson, was born out of an extramarital affair.
Jackson was born to Samuel, a university professor, and Crystal Lee King, in the US state of Arkansas on July 26 1928.
He was the oldest of five children, having two brothers, Lawrence and Luther, and two sisters, Lula Mae and Verna Mae.

While pursuing a boxing career, he met his future wife, Katherine Scruse, but first married someone else before divorcing a year later.
He married Katherine in 1949 and they bought a house in Gary, Indiana, welcoming their first child, Rebbie, six months after they tied the knot.
In the early 1960s, Jackson began nurturing his growing family’s musical talents, beginning with his eldest sons Jackie, Tito and Jermaine. Later, Marlon and Michael would be welcomed to the band.
Initially called the Jackson Brothers, the group changed their name to the Jackson 5 and one of the decade’s biggest-selling acts was born.

But perhaps Jackson’s most enduring legacy will be his son Michael. A global icon, he has had a profound impact on popular culture through his music, dancing and fashion.

Albums such as Thriller, Bad and Dangerous were wildly popular both commercially and critically.

Michael, no stranger to controversy, was one of the world’s most revered popstars when he died of a drug overdose aged 50 in 2009.

He made allegations of physical and emotional abuse against his father.

During a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michael alleged his father beat him, called him ugly and made him so scared he would vomit at the sight of him.

He said: “I love my father, but I don’t know him. Sometimes I do get angry. I don’t know him the way I’d like to know him.

“My mother’s wonderful. To me, she’s perfection. I just wish I could understand my father.”

Winfrey asked Michael why his father beat him, but he could offer no explanation.

He said: “I don’t know if I was his golden child or whatever it was. Some may call it a strict disciplinarian or whatever, but he was very strict. He was very hard. Just a look would scare you.

“There’s been times when he’d come to see me, and I would get sick. I’d start to regurgitate.”

But he remained unrepentant about the so-called “discipline”.

In 2013, Joe told CNN: “I had to be like that way because during those times, it was hard, and you have a lot of gangs there, you know, in the area where we were living.

“This was Gary, Indiana, and I had to make sure that they didn’t get in any type of trouble, and things of that sort.

“I’m glad I was tough, because look what I came out with. I came out with some kids that everybody loved all over the world. And they treated everybody right.

“You know, Michael, he was a nice guy.

“The world (doesn’t) know anything too much about Michael as far as how he was brought up. But he was brought up. I made sure that he respected the older people.”

Joe’s death also comes almost exactly nine years following that of Michael’s, who died on June 25, 2009.

Taj Jackson, the grandson of Joe, said the hearts of his “entire family” are in pain following the death of the patriarch.

He tweeted: “Disgusted by some of the comments I’m reading about my grandpa Joe by those who didn’t even know him. Please don’t just regurgitate what you were spoon fed by the press.

“Joe was loved by our ENTIRE family and our hearts are in pain. Let us grieve without the nastiness. #ripthehawk.”


The Rev Jesse Jackson tweeted a tribute, writing: “Joe Jackson, brother beloved, patriarch & creator of one of the most talented American musical dynasties.

“We will remember him as long as his family’s music plays. Offering prayers and condolences to the Jackson family. #RIP #NeverCanSayGoodbye #JoeJackson.”

Jackson is survived by his wife Katherine, sons Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy and daughters Rebbie, La Toya and Janet, as well as Joh’Vonnie Jackson, who was from an extramarital affair of his.

Michael B. Jordan-Produced Netflix Series ‘Raising Dion’ Casts Its Leads

 

( Photo credit: Elise Amendola, AP)

Raising Dion has found its Dion.

The Netflix production, produced by and co-staring Michael B. Jordan, follows the story of a woman named Nicole Reese, who raises her son Dion after the death of her husband Mark.

While Jordan has already signed on to play Mark, the roles of Nicole and Dion were announced Wednesday as filled by Alisha Wainwright and newcomer Ja’Siah Young.

Instagram Photo

Also, director Seith Mann has been tapped to helm the first episode of the sci-fi family drama. The “sci-fi” aspect of the series is rooted in 7-year-old Dion’s ability to manifest several magical, superhero-like powers. Nicole must keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.

Via Netflix:

Newcomer Ja’Siah Young will star as ‘Dion Reese,’ a curious, playful, and intelligent 7-year-old boy who is learning he has some very special abilities – he can move things with his mind. While exciting and cool, it’s also something he knows scares his mom, Nicole.

Alisha Wainwright (Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments) will star as ‘Nicole Reese,’ a former professional dancer who gave it up to raise her son Dion when her husband Mark died. Although Nicole is completely overwhelmed by raising her son alone while dealing with the loss of her husband, she is still effortlessly cool and maintains a positive outlook on life for Dion. As Dion’s abilities become more and more apparent, Nicole’s protective nature heightens as she starts to fear for his safety.

Seith Mann (The Wire, Homeland), who most recently served as co-creator, director, and executive producer of The Breaks, has been tapped to direct the first episode of the series. He will also serve as an executive producer.

“Raising Dion” is the brainchild of commercial and music video director Dennis Liu, who directed the short film, which became a viral sensation. Carol Barbee will serve as show runner/executive producer and wrote the script for episode one. Joining her, Liu, and Mann as executive producers are Michael B. Jordan, through his Outlier Society Productions, who will also appear in the series; MACRO’s Charles D. King, Kim Roth and Poppy Hanks; Kenny Goodman; and Michael Green.

The hour-long, ten-episode series will premiere on Netflix in 2019 in more than 190 countries around the world.

Michael Moore: We Have to ‘Put Our Bodies on the Line’ to Stop Trump

Scott Kowalchyk/CBS

In 2004, Michael Moore released his documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 about the run-up to the Iraq War. This September, he will premiere his latest film: Fahrenheit 11/9.

As the liberal filmmaker told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Thursday night, that date represents the night Donald Trump was elected president. “This is about how the hell we got in this situation and how we’re going to get out of it,” he said.

After playing a clip from the film in which he tries to infiltrate Mar-a-Lago, Colbert asked him if he was “civil” to the people there. “I was as civil as any Eagle Scout Catholic altar boy could be when confronted with the devil,” Moore answered.

Michael Smerconish Makes the Case for Bold Moderation

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

In our polarized world of “cable carnival shoutfest” and intransigent partisanship, Michael Smerconish is an increasingly exotic and refreshing voice. A prominent Sirius XM radio and CNN television host, he has been a regular contributor to the Daily News from November 2001 until 2007 and after that, a Sunday Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper columnist until the present day. Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right is Smerconish’s seventh book. It brings together a representative selection from the 1,047 columns he has written over the past 17 years that cover politics, profiles, life, and miscellanea.

A good number of these columns have stood the test of time. A few others Smerconish probably wishes he had never written. The columns he has included in this book are reprinted here as they appeared in the original form, with an afterword from the author that provides, in his own words, “an update on facts and feelings.” They make for enjoyable reading and remind us that journalism properly practiced requires a good deal of nerve, honesty, and insight, along with openness to dialogue and the determination not to live in a bubble.

Smerconish’s columns offer a representative slice of 21st century American life with all its ups and down, real heroes, and controversial characters. He writes with plain words and communicates his feelings in a straightforward manner. We get to meet here not only the likes of David Duke and Rush Limbaugh but also the sober voices of Arlen Specter, Tim Russert, and Jack Kemp. An inveterate admirer of Ronald Reagan, who he met in his youth, Smerconish does not shy away from applauding, when necessary, the rhetorical skills of President Obama. Nor does he avoid taking to task one of the politicians he respects, Senator John McCain, for failing to put forth an inspiring vision for the country in 2008.

Michael Avenatti, After Losing $10M Dispute: ‘I’m Not a Celebrity, I’m a Lawyer’

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, has been ordered to pay $ 10 million in a legal dispute with a former colleague who claims Avenatti’s firm stiffed him of millions in profits.

On Tuesday, U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge Catherine Bauer awarded the massive payout to ex-employee Jason Frank, the Los Angeles Times reported. “At this point, that’s what’s appropriate,” Bauer said at the Santa Ana, California hearing, according to the Times.

Last week, Frank filed a suit claiming the fame-hungry lawyer’s firm, Eagan Avenatti, missed a $ 2-million payment. It was supposed to be the first of two installments stemming from a bankruptcy settlement.

Michael B. Jordan’s Essence Cover Has The Internet Going Crazy

Source: Michael Rowe / Essnce

We just want to stop and take this time to thank the Father, the son and the holy ghost for bestowing Michael Blessing Jordan upon us. The blood of a lamb shall pour tonight. We were scrolling Twitter yesterday, minding our business when boom! Essence dropped their June cover with none other than Wakanda’s finest villain kill my vagina, Killmonger.

The Fahrenheit 451 star graces the cover clad in a fine red fireman adjacent track suit, showing of his heavenly sculpted abs and chiseled waistline. Someone turn on the fire hydrant, we’re getting parched just thinking about it.

The mere sight of MBJ’s pecs on the glossy set the net ablaze, quickly signaling a 5- alarm fire (there’s so many good fire references here, it’s too good to be true).

It wasn’t long before women were waving their white towels out their window in hopes of being rescued. And then it happened, we all got pregnant.

Michael Curry, Pioneering Bishop, To Speak At Royal Wedding

Presiding bishop Michael Curry of the American Episcopal Church will give a sermon at the royal wedding this Saturday, May 19. Kensington Palace confirmed on Twitter last Saturday that “Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have asked that The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, will give the address at their wedding.” He will join the dean of Windsor, the Rt. Rev. David Conner, and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who will officiate the service.


Although Prince Harry and Markle do not have a personal relationship with the reverend, the couple decided on Curry after discussions with the Archbishop of Canterbury, according to UK’s Telegraph. Curry, 65, is described as a “high energy” evangelical preacher who shook up the face of Episcopalianism.

History Maker

In November 2015, the Episcopal Church, historically one of the faiths of the nation’s white elite, installed Michael Bruce Curry as a presiding bishop over its 1.8 million members, becoming the denomination’s first African American spiritual leader.

The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God, and is the key to life and happiness,” Curry said.

Curry has backed same-sex marriage and racial reconciliation. In his 2015 autobiography, Songs my Grandma Sang, Curry revealed that he and his family are descendants of slaves and sharecroppers in North Carolina and Alabama.

Curry has been active on social justice issues throughout his ministry, including speaking out on immigration policy and supporting marriage for same-sex couples, according to his biography on the Episcopal Church’s website.

Taking A Stand

In 2016, after the archbishops of the Anglican Communion imposed three-year sanctions on the Episcopal Church for its decision to allow clergy to perform same-sex marriages, Curry said the church will not roll back its acceptance of gay marriage. Anglican leaders then stripped the Episcopal Church of any role in deciding doctrine or determing how the Anglican Communion operates for three years.

They heard from me directly that that’s not something that we’re considering,” Curry told NBC News. “They basically understand we made our decision, and this is who we are, and we’re committed to being a house of prayer for all.”

Curry was born in 1953 in Chicago to Dorothy Curry and Rev. Kenneth Curry, who was a Baptist before becoming an Episcopalian priest. He said his father became part of the church after he and his mother had been allowed to drink from the same chalice being passed among white parishioners in racially segregated Ohio.

Michael Avenatti Sounds Off on Giuliani and Trump: ‘These Guys Are Making This Up as They Go Along’

Lucas Jackson/Reuters

“It’s just been crazy,” says Michael Avenatti.

Over the past week, Stormy Daniels’ sound bite-dropping lawyer has made dozens of appearances on cable news—and one on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert—responding to the various developments in their case against President Donald Trump and his fixer Michael Cohen.

The media escalation began on Wednesday, when Rudy Giuliani, a member of Trump’s legal team for all of two weeks, made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program. There Giuliani, appearing slightly manic, claimed that Cohen “funneled” the $ 130,000 hush payment to Stormy Daniels “through a law firm” and that “the president repaid it.” He further divulged that Cohen was reimbursed for the funds via a $ 35,000 monthly retainer. Giuliani’s assertions ran contrary to statements made by both Trump and Cohen alleging that the president was unaware of the payoff to Daniels in the final weeks of the election—one that some legal experts argue qualifies as an illegal campaign contribution.

Michael B. Jordan Stopped Dying On Camera After Mom Couldn’t Take It

 

Michael B. Jordan

Michael B. Jordan has made a point to remove a major source of stress for his mother, Donna Jordan.

The actor, who most recently starred in “Black Panther,” has decided that he will never play a character whose death happens on screen – all to stop his “super emotional” mom from losing it, he revealed in an extensive interview.

“When I shot my death scene in ‘The Wire,’ she was on set. And the (production assistants) kept coming to me and saying: ‘You may want to check on your mom,’” the 31-year-old actor told The New York Times.

“I go see her, and she’s sitting there bawling. I’m just a kid. I’m going, ‘Come on, Ma. You’re embarrassing me.’ And after ‘Fruitvale Station,’ I was like, ‘Man, this is really affecting her.’”

So Jordan began taking on roles where he didn’t die: “Fantastic Four” and “Creed” and “That Awkward Moment.” In addition to the survival of his characters, he had an ulterior motive other than making his mom happy.

“I want people to see me win,” he told The Times. “I want audiences to see me ending up on top — not dying.”

James Comey’s New Book Is Already Outpacing Michael Wolff’s ‘Fire and Fury’—By At Least One Measure

Interest in James Comey’s upcoming book is through the roof, and President Donald Trump’s blistering Twitter attacks against his former FBI directly this past week likely are only stoking anticipation for the memoir.

Comey’s A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, which will be released on Tuesday, is already due to be one of the biggest political books of the year.

Macmillan, the book’s publisher, has ordered 850,000 copies to meet the expected demand. To compare, Michael Wolff’s sleeper hit Fire and Fury‘s first print run was only 150,000 copies. Macmillan president Don Weisberg told CNNMoney that A Higher Loyalty is the largest first printing the publishing house has done so far this year.

And if the success of Fire and Fury–and the preorder numbers for A Higher Loyalty–are any indication, Comey’s book will be a bestseller. Since its first print, more than two million copies of Fire and Fury have been sold. For its part, A Higher Loyalty has already pre-sold close to 200,000 copies and is at the top of Amazon’s best sellers list.

Chad Michael Murray Finds Out If His Late Grandmother was Murdered After Years of Mystery

Chad Michael Murray had never known the cause of death of his late grandmother — until now.

In fact, there were only two people who knew what exactly happened at the time of her death: his grandmother and her husband, his late grandfather, who was accused of her murder.

On Wednesday’s episode of Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry, Murray, 36, finally got some closure about her death.

“There’s this feeling that grandpa would’ve said or verbalized something to people before he died and after he died, his words were changed. He’s like, ‘No, I’m not taking accountability for this. This isn’t right.’ There’s something wrong here with the narrative that’s put after,” Tyler Henry, 22, told the One Tree Hill alum.

“For some reason, they’re having me talk about grandma. They’re having me talk about a fall for some reason. I don’t know what this is,” Henry explained.

“The speculation from the stories that I got from my grandfather was that he was arrested for her murder,” the actor said. “She died at 17 and she just had my mother. She was found with her hands tied behind her back, hung in the basement. So there was a fall, just in a different way.”

“And then after that, he was cleared and they didn’t really have enough evidence to say, ‘It was you that did it.’ ”

RELATED: Why Hollywood Medium‘s Tyler Henry Says Connecting with Michael Jackson Was ‘Really Humbling’

But according to Henry, Murray’s late grandmother died by suicide.

“Before I got here, there was this woman who came through who I acknowledged passing away tragically. But it came through in a way of like, taking accountability to some extent for her actions,” Henry informed the American Drifter author. “But I’m thinking that it might have been even her way of kinda trying to come through and say, ‘Hey, this is something that I’m putting more on myself.’ So, I don’t think he killed your grandmother.”

After speaking with Henry and learning the details about his late grandmother’s death, Murray revealed, “I am, without a doubt, a believer,” adding, “He’s pretty damn good at it.”

Hollywood Medium airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on E!

If you or someone you know is showing warning signs of suicide, consider contacting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK, texting the Crisis Text Line at 741741 or seeking help from a professional.

Report: Michael Cohen’s Efforts to Silence Stormy Daniels Began in 2011

Eduardo Munoz/Reuters

President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, reportedly began as early as 2011 his efforts to silence porn star Stormy Daniels from going public about an alleged affair with Trump—five years before he arranged for a $ 130,000 payment to Daniels.

According to The Washington Post, Cohen appeared to threaten an agent, Gina Rodriguez, who had “arranged for Daniels to earn $ 15,000 by telling her story to a celebrity publication.” Cohen allegedly relayed a message to Rodriguez’s ex-husband, Randy Spears, via phone: “You tell Gina that if she ever wants to work in this town again, she’ll call me immediately.”

Spears said he felt like Cohen was “trying to bully” him and Rodriguez, adding of his ex-wife: “She ranted and raved, like ‘How dare he?’”

Michael Smith Out As Anchor Of ESPN’s ‘Sportscenter’

The Eighth Annual Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival Kick-off 'When the Garden' at BMCC Theater

Source: PNP/WENN.com / WENN

The pairing of Michael Smith and Jemele Hill at ESPN’s Sportscenter was a history-making move marking the first time the popular sports program featured an all-Black anchor team. With Hill bolting for The Undefeated, it all seemed apparent that Smith would also follow suit and he delivered his last anchoring broadcast on Friday (Mar. 9).

Sports Illustrated reports:

Smith leaving the 6 p.m. SC6 edition of SportsCenter follows his former SportsCenter co-anchor Jemele Hill ’s decision to depart the franchise to join the staff of The Undefeated, the ESPN microsite that fuses sports, race and culture, as well as other additional assignments. Both Hill and Smith have multiple years left on their ESPN contracts so look for Smith to craft a new role at ESPN over the next couple of months.

As this column wrote in October when it predicted Hill’s tenure as the co-host of the 6 p.m. ET edition of SportsCenter would end, Smith leaving SportsCenter is not a surprise. The SportsCenter that Hill and Smith envisioned, what made their chemistry honest and unique on the ESPN2 show His and Hers and their podcasts together, had slowly been chopped away by a desire from management to change that show to that of a traditional SportsCenter. In addition, SportsCenter’s upper management shifted last September with longtime ESPN exec Norby Williamson becoming the lead executive on all SportsCenter content as part of a management shakeup in ESPN’s content group.

Although it isn’t known where Smith will end up next, chances are The Undefeated will be his next home.

What Is An ‘Inclusion Rider’ and Why Is Michael B. Jordan Using One?

When Frances McDormand closed her Oscar acceptance speech last weekend with the phrase “inclusion rider,” very few had ever heard the term based on the scanty applause in the audience and the spike in Google searches.

Deemed the Rooney Rule for Hollywood, Stacy L. Smith, who directs the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at the University of Southern California, introduced the idea in a 2014 column:

What if A-list actors amended every contract with an equity rider? The clause would state that tertiary speaking characters should match the gender distribution of the setting for the film, as long as it’s sensible for the plot. If notable actors working across 25 top films in 2013 had made this change to their contracts, the proportion of balanced films (about half-female) would have jumped from 16 percent to 41 percent. Imagine the possibilities if a few actors exercised their power contractually on behalf of women and girls. It wouldn’t necessarily mean more lead roles for females, but it would create a diverse onscreen demography reflecting a population comprised of 50 percent women and girls.

An “inclusion rider” is a clause that actors and actresses can ask to be inserted into their contract that would require diversity among a film’s cast and crew.

In light of the global success of the Black Panther movie, actor Michael B. Jordan announced yesterday that he will be adopting the diversity clause for all the projects his production company, Outlier Society takes on going forward.

“In support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all projects produced by my company Outlier Society,” the post read. “I’ve been privileged to work with powerful woman & persons of color throughout my career & it’s Outlier’s mission to continue to create for talented individuals going forward.”


The announcement comes just a day after Netflix CEO’s Reed Hastings said his company has no interests in doing such a thing. Reed said he would rather have his staff speak with filmmakers to determine how diverse the overall cast and crew on a film is.

“We’re not so big on doing everything through agreements,” Hastings said at a press briefing in his office. “We’re trying to do things creatively.”

In January, comedian and Oscar-winning actress Monique called for a boycott of the movie streaming service over gender and pay disparity issues, noting that Netflix allegedly offered her $ 500,000 for a comedy special while offering millions in compensation to Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle, and Chris Rock.

While the company, which has an estimated 117 million subscribers continues to play an important role in Hollywood, putting on more shows with diverse casts and producers is a great example of the easiest, quickest, and least permanent execution of diversity, noted Black Enterprise Editor-at-Large Alfred Edmond Jr.

While the company deserves praise for the diversity of its shows, its board is made up of white men and five women, with African Americans only making up 4% of its staff and leadership.

‘Black Panther’ Star Michael B. Jordan Teams Up With Brisk Iced Tea to Empower Urban Creatives

Brisk, a billion-dollar iced tea beverage brand owned by PepsiCo, announced the launch of the Creators Class program in partnership with Michael B. Jordan to provide emerging artists in urban areas with the opportunity to collaborate with and be mentored by industry leaders. Young creatives selected to participate in the initiative will gain real-world experience and exposure by working with established members in the film industry, visual arts, and writing to develop a special project. As a partner with Brisk, Jordan, who stars in Marvel’s groundbreaking Black Panther film, will give three lucky creators an apprenticeship with his production company.

“Brisk encourages the same boldness and creativity that I strive for in my work and with my production company, Outlier Society,” said Jordan in a statement. “That’s why I’m honored to be a part of the Creators Class and offer up-and-coming hustlers the opportunity to work on this special Outlier Society project.”

To promote the Creators Class program, Jordan directed, produced, and starred in an online video that spotlights a street artist’s hard work and creative hustle. In the ad, the 31-year-old actor prepares for his role in Black Panther while the artist simultaneously paints a mural of the Black Panther superhero. Brisk also celebrated the launch of Creators Class by hosting an exclusive Black Panther event in Los Angeles during NBA All-Star Weekend.



Melanie Watts, director of Marketing at Brisk, said the drink giant partnered with Marvel Studios and invited some of the talent behind Black Panther to join the Creators Class to “empower aspiring creators in the urban arts by providing real opportunities, mentorship, and game-changing industry exposure.”

The marketing campaign also serves to attract millennials and Gen Zers, consumers that Pepsi has struggled to reach. There’s a chance that the effort will connect with Gen Zers based on a popular film that defies negative perceptions of women and people of color and speaks to the generation’s hunger for success—two factors that cause-driven Gen Z finds important. “These generations tend to embrace creative efforts and innovation while shunning traditional views of gender roles and racial stereotypes, which appears to align with the Creators Class program and spirit of the Black Panther movie,” states MarketingDive.com.

Interested participants can apply to the Creators Class by visiting www.briskcreatorsclass.com up until March 2.

SNL’s Michael Che: Trump ‘Constantly Reaffirms All My Black Paranoia’

NBC

The right’s FBI “Secret Society” conspiracy theory has been debunked after it was revealed that it was based on a single joke text from one agent to another. But SNL’s “Weekend Update” anchor Michael Che isn’t so sure.

“Republicans have begun blaming a ‘secret society’ within the FBI for undermining the Trump presidency. And you know what? I believe it,” Che said on Saturday. “That’s why hating Donald Trump is so frustrating for me, because he constantly reaffirms all of my black paranoia. Just when I think he’s insane, he’ll say something that makes perfect sense. Like, ‘The media is lying, the FBI is trying to do me like they did Tupac.’ And I’m like, ‘They did kill Tupac, didn’t they?’”

Che also went off on White House adviser Stephen Miller, noting that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “said that before his meeting with President Trump on immigration reform,” he insisted that Miller not be allowed in the room. “But Miller usually scatters away whenever someone turns the lights on,” Che joked. “Because he looks like a roach.”

President Trump Is Having an Affair ‘Right Now,’ Michael Wolff Tells Bill Maher

HBO

The last time we saw Bill Maher on HBO’s Real Time, he was defending his friend Al Franken and condemning his ideological enemy Roy Moore. Three months later, neither man is serving in the U.S. Senate and the government is on the verge of a possible shutdown.

As the Senate began to vote on a continuing resolution to keep the government open, Maher kicked things off by wishing his audience a happy new year, or as he called 2018, “the year of the shithole.” The host summed up Trump’s immigration position with one question: “Why can’t we do immigration more like the way I got Melania, by using a catalogue?”

But the main event of Maher’s first show back came in the form of a sit-down with Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury, the book that managed to make Trump’s White House even more chaotic during the first few weeks of the new year.

Michael Douglas Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Michael Douglas denied sexual harassment allegations in an interview with Deadline on Tuesday, January 9.

The Oscar winner, 73, chose to come forward preemptively after being contacted by The Hollywood Reporter and Variety regarding claims of sexual misconduct made by an employee who worked for him more than 30 years ago.

According to Douglas, the publications reached out for comment regarding the woman’s claims that he used colorful and suggestive language in front of her, masturbated in front of her and blackballed her from the industry after he fired her.

“This is a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever,” he told Deadline of the allegation of sexual misconduct, saying that his “head was reeling.”

As for the other claims, Douglas apologized for his language but insisted that “none of it was directed at her.”

“She may have overheard private conversations, and if she was offended, she could have excused herself. As far as blackballing her, that was completely untrue. She was a lady who was involved in development at my company, and we just didn’t have a good development record in the time she was there, so I just moved on,” he said. “If people from the industry called me to ask about her, I would have been honest, but I never blackballed her.”

Douglas calls the accusations “extremely painful” but added, “I’d confess to anything I thought I was responsible for.”

He said what hurt the most was “having to share something like this to your wife and your children,” adding, “My kids are really upset, has to go to school worrying this is going to be in some article about me, being a sexual harasser. They’re scared and very uncomfortable.”

Douglas said his wife of 17 years, Catherine Zeta-Jones, with whom he shares two children, Dylan, 17, and Carys, 14, has been “very supportive” amid the situation that he described as “a complete nightmare.”

“I’m going to continue the way I’ve always treated women, as equals and my peers. Working closely with them. I would hope that as a cautionary tale, we will be careful about accusing, and being accused,” he continued.

Referencing the #MeToo movement and current climate in Hollywood in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal and several other sexual misconduct allegations made against high-profile actors including Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K. and Jeffrey Tambor, Douglas added, “I hope this movement continues to grow, but that there is care shown in who is accused and how the accusation is handled.”

Trump: ‘Watch What Happens’ to ‘Sloppy Steve’ Bannon and Michael Wolff

President Trump took to Twitter late Thursday to rage at former chief strategist Steve Bannon and Michael Wolff, the author of an explosive new book on his presidency. Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has triggered a political firestorm with its unflattering portrayal of dysfunction under Trump’s command, with Bannon earning special wrath from the president for his damning comments included in the book. Trump on Thursday slammed the “phony book,” claiming it is “full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist.” “Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!” he said. The president’s remarks come after his lawyers reportedly tried to halt the book’s release with a cease-and-desist letter accusing Wolff and the book’s publisher of “actual malice.” The letter backfired, however, with the publisher bumping up the book’s release date due to “unprecedented demand.”
