Gayle King: ‘I wasn’t scared during R. Kelly interview’


Gayle King was praised by her colleagues for her calm composure during her career-defining interview with troubled singer R. Kelly.

Kelly was previously arrested and charged with aggravated sexual abuse. His interview with King was his first since he bonded out of jail last weekend.

Kelly was agitated and aggressive during the explosive interview which aired on CBS This Morning. King, 64, remained calm and unbothered as Kelly stood over her while loudly professing his innocence.

Her quiet composure sparked hundreds of memes on social media, including the meme below.

“I was not scared,” King told the Oprah Magazine, where she serves as editor-at-large. “I never thought he was going to hit me.

King said she realized how scary the scenes looked “after Oprah and my kids Kirby and Will called me to ask if I was okay… But I was never worried he was going to hurt me. I was more worried that he was going to get up and leave,” King explained.

“So what I was really thinking to myself was: I’m not done with this interview, so I’m going to let him have his moment. If I stood up even to comfort him, that could have been his invitation to say ‘This is over.’ So I didn’t interrupt his anger and let him have that.”

Sources say the interview saved King’s career as an anchorwoman. She was rumored to have one foot out the door at CBS when her contract ends soon.

Celebrity Kids: Charlize Theron and son Jackson


Actress Charlize Theron is seen visiting the Federal Building in Los Angeles with her adopted son Jackson Theron in tow. The 6-year-old boy wore a cute onesie and his hair in braids with colorful beads. Charlize love to dote this little boy dressed like a girl for the camera.

I wonder if young Jackson knows that he is a boy, as he often looks confused since he may prefers stereotypical feminine attire. Charlize also has an adopted daughter, August.

The 51-year-old Chicago Bulls legend has 7 children — 4 with his soon to be ex-wife Larsa and three from previous relationships.

Larsa, a 42-year-old Chicago native who met Pippen at the height of his career is ready to move on to greener pastures. As rumor has it, that she cheated on Pippen with rapper “Future” (pictured with him below). Larsa being best friends with Kim Ho-Dashian and apart of her girlfriend squad, it’s no secret she pointed her best friend in the direction of new money and marketable stability.

Us Weekly — Larsa’s rep issued a statement to Us Weekly. “After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage,” the statement said. “Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their four beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. … She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family.”

Jesus take the wheel, Jenner graces Vanity Fair in DRAG!


brucilla-jenner-550x689

Jenner was photographed in drag by famed photog (and practicing lesbian) Annie Liebovitz for the cover of the June 9 issue.

Vanity Fair should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting mental illness for profit and financial gain. Wearing a wig, lingerie, and tucking your male parts does not make a man a woman.

As promised, Bruce Jenner has made her first appearance as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair, which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz. In the cover shot, Jenner introduces herself: “Call me Caitlyn.”

In the accompanying story in the magazine’s July issue, Jenner talks to Buzz Bissinger, writer of the acclaimed Friday Night Lights, about why she decided to transition, noting the immense regret she would have felt had she lived her entire life without making a change. “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.?’”
