Jackée Harry Says Eartha Kitt Once “Slapped The F%#! Outta Me” Over A Man

Jackée Harry and Eartha Kitt

Archive this one in little-known and very crazy Hollywood history facts.

Jackée Harry, former star of 227, revealed on Twitter on Wednesday that she had a less than pleasant encounter at one time with the late acting and singing legend, Eartha Kitt. She didn’t say when, but shared that the greatest Catwoman of all pulled out her claws, or make that her hand, and slapped Harry. It was all over a cheating man.

She recounted the story after writer Michael Segalov asked people what their most surreal encounter was with someone famous. Harry said Kitt “slapped the f%#!” out of her because she was messing around with Kitt’s man, not knowing that the guy and the icon were in a relationship:

We can’t imagine how crazy of a scene that was, but we are glad that Harry didn’t mind sharing.

Interesting enough, Kitt had her own less than pleasant encounter with another woman, pertaining to a man. She said in historian Donald Bogle’s book, Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, that Nat King Cole’s wife, Maria (Natalie’s mother), wrote her a letter telling her to watch herself with Nat. Even though he and Kitt weren’t involved, she claims he sent her some flowers after they wrapped up working on the film St. Louis Blues. The note with the flowers read, “Handy misses Go-Go,” which were the names of their characters. She sent a note back reading “Go-Go also misses Handy.” Maria caught wind of it and made her displeasure with their friendship known.

“She [Maria] sent me a beaded cashmere sweater as a thank-you gift with a note pinned to it that must have poisoned the pen that wrote it,” Kitt said in the book. According to her, the note read, “I don’t know if you think of yourself as some kind of temptress siren but the film is over and Go-Go (you) is gone, let’s leave it that way.”

It sounds like Kitt certainly heeded that warning, and Harry likely learned a lesson from the star’s hard hand…

Google is Once Again Looking for Podcasters and Creators of Color for 2019

The Google Podcasts Creator Program, run by PRX, is back and is looking for its next round of participants. The program provides 20 weeks of training and mentorship as well as seed funding to promising podcasters with the aim of promoting underrepresented voices throughout the industry and around the world.

Catalina May and Martín Cruz, the team behind Las Raras (The Outsiders), are independent podcasters based in Santiago, Chile. They are one of the six teams participating in the first round of the program. Their training began in January 2019 with a week-long intensive bootcamp at the PRX Podcast Garage in Boston, and will culminate in a final showcase on June 19.

“At the PRX Podcast Garage, we met amazing trainers and the five other teams in the program,” stated the Las Raras team. “It was a dream to talk about podcasting for 12 hours a day with a diverse group of people who share our passion.”

Other podcasts accepted into the program included AfroQueer, a podcast that sets out to raise awareness about LGBTQ+ people’s lives in a place where homosexuality is illegal, Long Distance which tells stories from the Filipino diaspora; The Colored Girl Beautiful which reflects on modern beauty standards; Timestorm introduces children to Puerto Rican history, and “Who Taught You How to Drive?!”, a [odcast that talks about car culture and road rage.

Las Raras,” was inspired by the first season of Serial. As a journalist and a sound engineer, the team understood the influence that podcasts could have on their culture. “This intimate medium is perfect for telling stories of people who are frequently overlooked, stories of people challenging norms, and stories of people defying the status quo.”

The Google Podcasts creator program has sense assisted all of the teams in bringing their goals to fruition by helping to increase the diversity of voices in the podcasting industry.

Applications for the next round are currently open and will be accepted until 11:59pm ET, Sunday, April 14.

Tattoos Were Once for Rebels. Is Popularity Killing the Art?

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Getty

In 1896, an Italian criminologist named Cesare Lombroso—whose infamous, disproved, scientifically racist theories include believing all offenders were part ape—wrote another spicy take on tattoos for the April issue of Popular Science Monthly.

After studying the prevalence of tattoos on Italian and German law-breakers, Lombroso came to the conclusion that “criminals, like savages, are very little sensitive to pain,” since their lot did not mind getting prodded by needles for the sake of making a statement.

At the same time as Lombroso was spouting his social Darwinist nonsense, aristocratic women all over London were taking to the boudoirs, rolling up their sleeves, and getting ink of their own.

Shutdown Proves Once and For All Trump Has No Idea What He’s Doing

Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast

Who believed that “great negotiator” stuff in the first place? Who? Anybody with half a critical mind and an attention span longer than a gerbil could figure out in 2016 that Donald Trump was no master negotiator. If he won negotiations, it was because he lied more than the other side. But usually, as time went on, he lost.

But win or lose, in all those negotiations over air rights and concrete prices and how much on the dollar he’d pay contractors he’d cheated, he was operating in a world where the scrutiny wasn’t intense and the law was only haphazardly actually enforced. A world where you could bluff and delay and make the people suing you take a number. You can agree to settlements, pay money, admit no wrongdoing, and skate to the next disaster.

That’s not the world when you’re president. When you’re president, believe it or not, your word has to be good. You have to have some basis for saying Mexico will pay for your wall. And—and thank God this is still true—you have to have public opinion on your side.

Why you should stay in a youth hostel at least once in your life

ADVERTISEMENT


Some people refuse to stay in a youth hostel as they fear sharing their space with a complete stranger, or a group of strangers. Sure it means you have to get a little closer to people you know nothing about, but that’s actually part of its charm, plus they are a bargain too! Here’s why you should stay in a youth hostel at least once in your life.

Out of your comfort zone

Travel is all about creating experiences, but if you stay within your comfort zone, those memories might pass you by. Spending a few nights in a youth hostel will put you in touch with like-minded people all trying to have a great time. It is a collection of potential new friends.

There is always a place to hang out and have a few drinks before you and your new friends go exploring the city you’re staying in. Making friends at a youth hostel is pretty much inevitable if you’re open to the idea, and it can only make your experience better.

They cost less

There is one thing many people always argue in favor of hotels over hostels, they give you privacy. That privacy comes at a price, and often it makes travel far too expensive. For those who want to see the world but don’t have the budget to spend every night in a hotel, there is the humble youth hostel. They can cost as little as $ 10 per night and offer you a safe place to stay in a foreign land.

Hostels know what you want

The people who run youth hostels know exactly what you’ve come for. A good time! You will find that they try to help people get out and explore their wonderful cities, either during the day or to get a taste of the nightlife. The staff will suggest tours, and at night many of the team will gather a group of fellow hostel residents to go out and enjoy themselves.

Local knowledge

If you want to find the latest hotspot in the city, then the chances are the people working in the youth hostel are going to know where that is. Their jobs are to look after young travelers, so they have to know what they are attracted to. Tap into the staff’s knowledge to get to know some of the world’s best cities, plus they often have exclusive discounts to make things cheaper.

Resources

If you are traveling on a budget, then you might not have the cash to go out and eat dinner every night. One thing youth hostels offer you above hotels is the use of a guest kitchen. You can make your own meals in the evenings before hitting the town, saving vital resources for the local clubs and bars.

Youth hostels get a bad rap from people, but they offer so much. They won’t break the bank, and they pretty much guarantee you’re going to have a good time by creating a party atmosphere.

X Factor finalist Anthony Russell ‘FaceTimed inmate once dubbed ‘Merseyside’s most wanted’ who was using smuggled phone’

X FACTOR finalist Anthony Russell reportedly had a video call with an inmate once dubbbed “Merseyside’s most wanted” on a mobile phone smuggled into prison.

The 28-year-old’s friendly chat on FaceTime with Michael Trevillion was posted in a screengrab on Facebook, the Mirror claims.

He was at ITV studios at the time he allegedly spoke to the 38-year-old using the account named John Smith.

Trevillion is serving four years in prison for burglary, but was keen to stress he is a huge fan of Anthony.

He wrote on social media on October 14: “Just had a belter chat with my mate Anthony Russell an [sic] he’s got the X Factor xxx”.

Singer Anthony from Liverpool will perform in the final of the ITV show this weekend up against Salton Harris and Scarlett Lee.

Anthony Russell dropped to the floor in shock tonight as he made the show’s final[/caption]

He insisted he would be dead if he hadn’t met his mentor Louis Tomlinson who paid for him to go through rehab after pulling out last year over his drug and alcohol addiction.

Since getting sober Anthony has formed a close bond with the One Direction singer – and jumped into his arms after it was announced that he will be in the upcoming final.

He hit the headlines earlier in the series when he inundated a young mum with unwanted sex videos and texts.

He was repeatedly warned by the mum to stop sending the explicit messages and was told her child’s iPad was linked to her phone.

Anthony apologised, saying: “I’m sorry if I’ve upset her or caused any ­offence.”

Anthony called Louis a ‘King’ in the touching tweet

A source close to Anthony reportedly told the newspaper: “This guy called out of the blue through Facebook Messenger and Anthony answered.

“Anthony had no idea that he was in prison using an illegal phone.”

Red Sox Defeat Dodgers Once Again for a 2-0 World Series Start

(BOSTON) — From playoff flop to October ace in two legacy-shifting starts, David Price earned his second postseason victory in a row and moved the Boston Red Sox halfway to yet another World Series title.

The Red Sox left-hander pitched six innings of three-hit ball, and major league RBI leader J.D. Martinez broke a fifth-inning tie during another two-out rally to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 on Wednesday night.

Game 3 is Friday in Los Angeles. The Dodgers need a win to avoid an 0-3 deficit that no World Series team has ever recovered from.

“This is the biggest stage in baseball,” Price said after his longest postseason outing since signing a seven-year, $ 217 million contract to come to Boston in 2016. “To be able to do that, it feels good, for sure. I’m pumped for myself, pumped for all my teammates and coaches for us to be two wins away.”

Mookie Betts had three hits for the Red Sox, who have won 14 of their last 16 World Series games dating to a four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2004. They have won two more championships since then, in ’07 and ’13.

Not bad for a team that went the previous 86 years without a title.

And Price had battled a curse of his own.

The one-time Dodgers draft pick has pitched like an ace in the regular season but was 0-9 in his first 10 postseason starts before this October. Whether with Tampa Bay, Toronto, Detroit or Boston, his team had never won a playoff game he started before this year.

But the Red Sox have now won his last three postseason starts, including the ALCS Game 5 clincher against the defending World Series champion Astros in which he pitched six shutout innings.

“I get it, the numbers and all that. But this guy is a great pitcher,” Boston manager Alex Cora said. “He’s been one of the best pitchers in the big leagues for a while, and he cares.”

On a frigid night at Fenway Park, Price held the highest-scoring team in the NL hitless through three innings and retired the last seven batters he faced. He struggled only in the fourth, loading the bases with nobody out on two singles and a walk as the Dodgers took a 2-1 lead — their first of the Series.

“I’m so happy for him and proud of him,” Martinez said. “Going through all that criticism that he’s been getting here, to bounce back to what he’s been doing.”

And the Red Sox batters did what they’ve been doing: scoring with two outs.

In an uncanny stretch of clutch hitting that’s been their hallmark throughout their 108-win season, the Red Sox scored all their runs in Game 2 with two outs, including a three-run rally in the fifth that only started after Hyun-Jin Ryu set down Ian Kinsler and Jackie Bradley Jr.

Christian Vazquez singled, Betts did the same and Andrew Benintendi worked the count full before walking to load the bases, chasing Ryu. Ryan Madson walked Steve Pearce to tie the game before Martinez, who had 130 RBIs in the regular season, dropped a flare in front of right fielder Yasiel Puig for a two-run single that gave Boston a 4-2 lead.

BIG FINISH

Price and three relievers retired the last 16 Los Angeles batters, with Craig Kimbrel closing out the Dodgers in the ninth for his sixth save this postseason . Not since Don Larsen’s 1956 perfect game for the Yankees against the Brooklyn Dodgers has an AL team retired as many consecutive hitters to finish a World Series game, according to STATS.

“We had him. We had him on the ropes,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “The difference is they got the big hit when they needed, and we didn’t.”

Boston’s other run came on Kinsler’s two-out single in the second. The Red Sox, who led the majors in two-out runs in the regular season, have scored 36 of their 68 runs this postseason — and nine of their 12 in the Series — with two outs.

IN A HOLE

The last 10 teams to win the first two games of the World Series — and 16 of the last 17 — have gone on to win it all. And the NL West champions will need to do it against a team that has won six straight postseason games and five in a row on the road.

“We’re just in the middle of the World Series,” Dodgers first baseman David Freese said. “We’re down 2-0, we get that. We just understand that Game 3 is a necessity, just like Game 2.”

GREAT CATCH

One night after getting four hits, Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi made a leaping, spread-eagle catch to rob Brian Dozier of an extra-base hit leading off the fifth. With the ball tailing away from him toward the corner, Benintendi jumped, kicked and pulled it in a few feet in front of the Green Monster scoreboard.

“Me and Mookie work on our ballet a lot, especially in spring training,” Benintendi said.

Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger may have done him one better, sliding under Martinez’s long drive to make a nice grab in the eighth.

UP NEXT

The teams head to the West Coast for Game 3 at Dodger Stadium on Friday. Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler is scheduled to pitch for Los Angeles against likely Boston starter Rick Porcello.
