Jared Leto is muscly AF; “Mommie Dearest” musical; Madonna on ‘Drag Race’?

Is a “Mommie Dearest” musical a good idea?

With a book written by the ever-enterprising Christina Crawford and music from David Nehls (The Great American Trailer Park Musical), such a script does indeed exist, threatening to slap, scream, and swat its way onto the Great White Way at any friggin’ moment.

According to Broadway World Off-Broadway, a script starring Alison Lea Bender, Jeremy Benton, Madeleine Doherty, and Tari Kelly just went down at Out of the Box Theatrics.

Their press materials describe the story as one of “triumph of the human spirit” that’s “set against unrepentant cruelty.” O…kay.

The musical numbers should write themselves. A few idears off the top of our heads: “I Can Handle The Socks”; “A Lousy Substitute (For Someone Who Really Cares”); “My Babies! (Somebody Stole Her Babies!)”; “Where A Window Ought To Be”; “I’m Going To School Looking Like A Tramp!”; “That’s Good, Darling”; and “I Don’t Ask Much From You, Girl.”

Actually, this is starting to sound like great idea.

Is Madonna making a grand jéte into the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race?

RuPaul, ever the coy little minx, isn’t saying yes, but isn’t saying no, either.

Frankly, it’s killing us and we’re spending our days in a fog wondering what the future has in store for us.

In a recent interview with TV Line‘s Michael Ausiello, Ru is asked who might be sashaying through Season 10.

“Can’t tease about that, but it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Ru says.

Lady Gaga is kind of tough to top,” Ausiello prods.

“It is tough to top her, but I think we’ve done it. I really do.”

Ausiello throws Madonna’s name in the pot, and Ru doesn’t immediately pull it out, set it on fire, throw it on the floor, and stomp on it.

So that’s a very good sign.

“I can’t saaaay,” she singsongs.

“You didn’t deny Madonna.”

“We didn’t deny it.”

Take that as you will.

Jared Leto.

He spent last Friday setting social media on fire by shaving off his beard and posting a photo to Instagram that shows off his newly muscled physique.

It’s all in the hopes of drumming up some excitement for 30 Seconds To Mars’ latest single “Walk on Water.”

Did he succeed?

White-knuckling through your days until Will & Grace boogies its way back onto the airwaves?

In the NBC special The Paley Center Salutes the Best of Will & Grace, Megan Mullally reveals some intriguing details about how the character of Karen was born, her arduous audition process, and why she kept getting fired from all her previous roles.


On the smoldering side of the spectrum, meet Joey Kiho Kim, a 6’2″ model and med student who hopes to make a difference, both in the hospital and out.

“As much as this is a hobby and fun for me,” he writes, “I hope that I can have some positive impact on the way that Asian-American males are portrayed in the media and viewed by the world.”
