Rosanne, a Rich Legacy of Horrific

It’s not often I open my mouth and nothing comes out. This wasn’t due to a medical condition, nor that I had nothing to say, and it definitely wasn’t due to Ambien, or a sleepless night. I am known to have my opinions and to share them freely. So why when asked about the firing of Rosanne Barr for her racist comments on a Twitter rampage was I silent; let’s just say it took me back to a moment in time.

 

Baseball’s rich history is a slice of Americana; the vision of generations of families crowding the stands to cheer for their home team, and singing “Take me out to the ballgame”. Visual disruption, I attended the San Diego Padres game 25 years ago, the night Rosanne Barr halfheartedly screeched the national anthem. After her horrific performance, she proceeded to literally spit on the ground when booed by fans. This was appalling, even by Rosanne standards, and went viral without the assistance of Twitter and other forms of social media.

 

It took years to erase the tarnished image she left behind with baseball. Rosanne claims to be stupid. I wouldn’t argue this as she hasn’t learned from her mistakes, which is something smart people do. Maybe she feels these vulgar displays are working for her and thrives on the attention she receives. I applaud ABC for cancelling her show, now if they can reassign the workers she displaced we can all move on and my words will come back.

Blake Lively recently shared a message about a movie that she is part of, and Ryan Reynolds responded to her post by asking for spoilers.

There are things that couples do to stay close to one another and to help everyone else fall in love with them. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have gained a following through the way that they interact on social media. They are a fun couple who seem to be truly interested in one another and just what they are each up to. They are a couple that seems to be doing well and that many are cheering on, and they are a couple that just might make it when so many others fall apart.

 

Kim Kardashian Heads To The White House

Professional spokesperson and reality TV star Kim Kardashian is set to visit the White House to discuss prison reform with President Trump. Prison reform is a pet topic for presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, whose father Charles spent a year in prison for a variety of charges that included tax evasion and witness tampering. According to press reports, Kardashian and Kushner have been privately planning a visit for months.

 

Kushner has been working behind the scenes to get a bill called the First Step Act, which would provide resources that makes it easier for recently released prisoners to reintegrate in society. One part of the bill gives prisoners increased opportunities to serve out part of their sentence in a halfway house. Kushner’s father served about half of his two-year sentence in a halfway house in New Jersey.

 

After her meeting with Kushner, Kardashian is set meet with President Trump to discuss prison reform. Specifically, she is expected to request that he issue a pardon for a woman who is currently serving a life sentence for a first-time drug offense. While it’s not known whether he will agree to that request, the President has said he will sign the First Step Act if it makes it to his desk. The bill recently passed the House with a bipartisan vote of 360-59 vote. It’s now headed to the Senate.

Paul Rudd Won’t be a Part of Sonic the Hedgehog

Paul Rudd remains one busy lead actor. With the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp film, Rudd further cements himself as a player in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And he’ll be appearing in other MCU ensemble features as well. What he won’t be doing, however, is playing a role in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film. Rumors swirled that Rudd was slated for a lead role in the project. At one point, indications were he was close to signing. Paramount, however, issued a clarification on the news. Rudd isn’t appearing in the Sonic the Hedgehog film.

 

That’s not to say no one at Paramount wanted Rudd in the feature. He was seriously considered for a part. As of right now though, Rudd won’t be in the film.

 

Rudd wasn’t sought to play the lead character of Sonic. Sonic will be pure CGI and voiced by a human actor. A voice-only job probably wouldn’t be something a rising actor such as Rudd prefers. It wouldn’t matter. The character he was considered for was a sidekick to Sonic. Honestly, that would be an even worse role for Rudd.

 

Playing a supporting role to a CGI-created character doesn’t befit someone whose career is on the upswing. Rudd already stars in a successful franchise. Ant-Man, like other MCU projects, will probably become a trilogy. What benefit does the actor gain from appearing in a risky endeavor such as Sonic the Hedgehog?

 

Sonic may prove to be a hit, but the film must do so without Rudd.
