Charlie Sheen : What Happens If Rating Soar ? A Big Bonus And A Short Rehab

Although Charlie Sheen has finally checked himself into an undisclosed rehab facility , no one knows how seriously he's going to take it  until the rating  come in  this week for 'Two and A Half Men.'

"If the rating go through the roof again  as they did after Charlie's incident in New York  , CBS and Charlie will be out again  in no time  and back to his old ways," warns a close friend  of the actor . "However , if the public finially stops rewarding Charlie  for his bad behavior  , then , and only then , can you expect him to take the situation seriously."

Why ? It's simple  , Charlie  make a substantial bonus on his industry-topping salary ($ 1.25 million  per episode ) if the show does particularly well.

[On that subject ... the next highest paid actor in a sitcom is Charlie Sheen's co-star , Jon Cryer , at $500,000 per episode . The Half in the show , Angus T. Jones , is TV's highest paid teen , raking in $ 250,000 per episode]

Mark Burg added  , "Charlie hopes to be back at work in the near future  , but there is no time frame  . Regaining  his sobriety is what is most important.

But insiders  famiilier with the situation  says "CBS only has two unaired episodes of TV's   # 1 comedy in the can . So although team Charlie claims there no time frame  ("near future") , they mean they hope the troubled actor is back on the set within a few weeks.

Just a thought : That seems to me like a very small amount of time to fix a very large problem.

Ron Howard Defends 'Gay' References in The Dilemma

Winona Ryder ( here with Ron Howard)  is spotted with another man by her husband's best friend, played by Vince Vaughan

Ron Howard, director of family friendly fare like Splash, Parenthood and Cocoon, has returned to comedy-drama with his new film The Dilemma. The Oscar winner has been thrown into a battle with US gay rights groups and forced to defend the freedom of artistic speech over a scene in the movie's trailer.

It sees best friends and business partners Ronny and Nick, played by Vince Vaughan and US TV comic Kevin James, attempting to market a new kind of electric engine which will feel and sound like a gas-powered beast.
Its selling point, as Vaughan points out, is that the electric cars currently look and sound "gay".  He supports his hypthesis with a power-point presentation featuring a display of  pictures of small effeminate dogs wearing pink ruffles.

"I was surprised because it shows up on television all the time, it's part of American slang and used with a non-sexual connotation," explains Howard. "But then I thought about it and realized it was really being called into question  because it was out of context in the  advertising materials."

The scene was condemned by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (Glaad) who had support from CNN journalist Anderson Cooper, who told TV host Ellen Degeneres that it was "unacceptable".

"I was not going to take it out of the movie because I thought it informs a lot about the character and the fact that he is willing to say inappropriate things and make inappropriate choices and we have everybody reacting to it and that is what's funny about it," says Howard. However, the 56-year-old appears to agree that the scene's controversial inclusion in the film's trailer may not have the desired comedic effect.
"A piece of marketing is a different thing, no-one paid their money to see it, no-one turned the channel to see it, they're not trusting in a storyteller's aesthetic.   "It's just thrust upon them and it is a significant issue. I understood people using the opportunity to make a point and the studio wanting to remove it, but as it related to the the movie, I also didn't feel it was appropriate to take it out."

The film sees Vaughn's character grappling with the dilemma of whether of not to tell his best friend that his wife, played by Winona Ryder, has been cheating on him with a young tattooed himbo. Adding to the conundrum is the fact that his pal has been working flat out to seal a lucrative deal with a motor company.
The idea came up during an after-dinner conversation in Rome, while promoting Howard's film Angels and Demons - the prequel to Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. Brian Grazer - Howard's partner in Imagine Entertainment - posed the question of whether to tell or not to tell.
"The conversation would not end, all the way through main course and on into dessert," recalls Howard.

Camille Grammer :Wants $10 million Safety Net From Kelsey In Case He Dies WTF"

Attorneys for Kelsey and Camille Grammer appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom to address the financial settlement in the couple's contentious divorce, RadarOnline.com

Neal Hersh and Lance Spiegel appeared before Judge Maren E. Nelson Wednesdaynwhen it was revealed that the paperwork oreviously submitted by Kelsey was only a proposed settlement  -- not permanent as ordered by the court in order to grant the bifurcation.

Last  wek ,Camille's filed a series of new documents with the Los Angeles County Superior Court challenging the bifurcation , claiming that her pension expert  , Darren J. Goodman , Esq.  wasn't given a chance to properly  review Kelsey's fortune -- including his Screen Actors Guide Pension , which she is entitled  to a share of given there is no pre-nup ... despite the former Frasier star's court bid to rush through the split.

Camille's lawyer, Neal  Hersh , addressed the court with his concerns that if Kelsey remarries next month and then he dies , Camille would have to pay out of her own pocket for any litigation regarding his estate.

Hersh is requesting for Kelsey to put money into a bond to cover any potential future court  c osts until the divorce case is settled -- suggesting $10 million should cover it. "My client shouldn't have to litigate against Mrs. Grammer -to-be-ex . We're not in the gambling business ," Hersh told the judge.

Judge Nelson set a February  2  deadline for Kelsey to file the permanant settlement details and if both parties agree on the terms , the judge may grant the bifurcation at the February 7 hearing n... freeing up Kelsey to marry Kayte Walsh as soon as Valentine's Day !

As RadarOnline .com previously reported , Kelsey filed to bifurcate his marriage to Camille , which means that he wants the judge in his divorce to sign off on the divorce ... something  that is usually done when one of the parties wishes to remarry immediately . 

In her opinion , Camille stated  : "Pursuant to my accountants' preliminary estimate , our community estate is worth  in approximate  amount of One Hundred Twenty Million Dollars . This is a substantial estate which includes muliple real estate  properties  and their  corresponding furnishing , numberous pieces of valuable art , many investment , brokerage , and bank accounts, over  twenty-five vehicles."

At the time of the divorce filing  , Camille was filming what would be a one-off stint on the Bravo show , while Kelsey was busy with the Broadway production of La Cage aux Follies.

The couple have two kids together , Mason and Jude.

True fact : Divorce is hard on the pocketbook...think twice fellows.

George Clooney: I Won't Get Married Again

George and Elisabetta Canalis

Wedding photo: Wed to Talia Balsam

Talia now
Don't expect George Clooney's love Elisabetta Canalis to join Hollywood's bridal brigade — because her famous beau is not interested in getting hitched. In an interview with Piers Morgan, George's father, Nick  admitted he "yearned for the moment" when his movie star son would wed Canalis. (Nick and George's mom, Nina, have been married for more than 50 years.) George's retort: "I hate to blow your whole news story, but I was married, so I gave it a shot."

Indeed, it's a lesser-known fact that Clooney was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993. Where is Balsam these days? The actress, 51, keeps busy with a steady stream of film and TV roles; she plays Natalie Portman's mom in "No Strings Attached," out this weekend. As a recurring character on "Mad Men" she appears as ex-wife to Roger Sterling, played by actor John Slattery — her real-life husband, with whom she has one son, Harry.

Clooney and Italian actress/model Canalis, 32, have been dating since 2009. She opened up to Italian Vanity Fair last year about her romance with one of the world's most desired men. "There are some people who just don't want to see me happy," Canalis complained. "[George] reassures me all the time. He is very close. I feel more embraced than ever before. The idea of being so loved is overwhelming. ... George has given color back to my life."

During the Piers Morgan interview, Clooney also praised his actor dad for teaching him the value of doing charity work "to help look out for people that are less fortunate than you and to challenge people that are in power."
Would Clooney consider entering politics?
"Honestly, my job is as good as they get," he said. "I think that I am best suited as an advocate for issues, and I look to people who are far smarter and far better at this than I am to lead."
Not that the handsome star doesn't suffer a bit for his work. Clooney recently contracted malaria while on a humanitarian visit to Sudan, but has since recovered. "Even with malaria, it's just good fun," he joked. "I guess the mosquito in Juba looked at me and thought I was the bar."

Oprah Winfrey : "Open To Building A Relationship" With Half-Sister



It's been a very  busy new year for Oprah Winfrey !  New cable network , new baby sis ...

"I look forward to building a relationship with her,"  the daytime queen told    ...who else ? ...BBF Gayle King today on King's radio show , "Having been burned a lot of times in other relationships , I'm the kind of person that would like to take it slow, build a relationship upon mutual respect and understanding .

"Iam open to having a sisterly relationship ," Winfrey continued , but such things aren't  automatic and they take time .  Of course , the big  reveal wasn't  news to King.

"I even knew that this was coming, I knew all the details ," King began by way of introducing her pal  via web conference , "but as I sat there watching the story , you told the story so beautifully , and I know that there had been a lot of conversation about when to tell , what to release  , what to do . And at first I was very reticent about it being on the Oprah show ....but you did it so beautifully."

Winfrey revealed on Oprah yesterday that she had a younger half sister  , who she only introduced as Patricia , who their mother , Vernita Lee , gave up for adoption in 1963  . Lee, who lives in Milwaukee , recently suffered a partial stroke.

There was much discussion about how to tell the story," Winfrey said.  "I did not want this story exploited in the tabloids  and have her family hounded ...and have pieces of the story not be true...I felt strongly that the story should be told by somebody who ...
"Who really knew the facts," King interjected.

"I feel that I really do like her,"  Winfrey said to Patricia . "I'm open to building a relationship with her and allowing that to build as it should , and I'm sure it will."  Even Stedman has said  "she's the real deal," she added.

"I think we have... the common interest of our mother ,"  the OWN honcho mused.  "Everybody who's dealing with an ailing parent understands that process of getting care for them . and we're speaking regularly about that."

Meaning , they're not just cultivating  a relationship for ratings' sake.
"I had her to dinner at my house the night before we taped the show ," Winfrey continued , and they had "conversations about [Patricia's] family  and how I can be helpful."

"She's coming into the family  at this time has been a great peace offering  , a great symbol of peace-making  in  this family ," Winfrey added . "I would say I see her as a gift." 

Goodbye Jack




 

Jack LaLanne, the man who made it his mission to motivate everyone to eat healthy and exercise, died Sunday at the age of 96. “I can’t afford to die,” LaLanne used to joke. “It would wreck my image.”

LaLanne became interested in fitness as a teen, a passion that would define his life. From a long-running television show to a series of gyms and even his own power juicer, LaLanne was not only a force but also the first on the fitness scene.
“I never think of my age, never,” LaLanne said in 1990. “I could be 20 or 100. I never think about it, I’m just me.”
In 1957, when he turned 43, LaLanne did more than 1,000 push-ups in 23 minutes on the “You Asked for It” television show. At 60, handcuffed, shackled and towing a boat, he swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. He performed a similar stunt 10 years later in Long Beach.

LaLanne’s actions were designed to inspire others to transform their lives.
“The only way you can hurt the body is not use it,” LaLanne said. “Inactivity is the killer and, remember, it’s never too late.”

Report : Ted Williams Quits Rehap

Ted Williams has reported quit rehab against medical advice.

The golden voiced homeless man who rocketed  to fame earlier  this month after  his talents were discovered  on the street , has left Origins Recovery  Center in Texas , according to TMZ.

Williams entered rehab for drug and alcohol abuse  less than two weeks ago   after being convinced by Dr. Phil.

Gossipcop has reached out to individuals at the  Center in order to confirm the report.
The Ted  Williams saga continues, updates as they become available.

Tell-All Book At The Root Of The Jackson Family War "WTF"

 
Katherine  Jackson's war  with Jermaine/Randy's baby mama Alejandra  Jackson is all about a tell-all Alejandra is working on ... sources  directly connected with the family dispute rett TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ...the  Michael Jackson  Estate   has  filed  legal papers  trying  to evict Alejandra and her kids ,    Jaafar ,Jermajesty ,Donte ,Randy,Jr.and Geneieve  from the family home in Encino, which was owned  by MJ and now the Estate (the Estate is being remodel, it's a wait and see if Alejandra moves back in).

Now TMZ knows what has lead to this legal showdown  :

Katherine  and her lawyers asked Alejandra and her kids to leave months ago, following the stun gun incident with Jaafar . Alejandra lawyered up , and put the Estate put an offer on the table ... the Estate would give her a  condo, but in return she'd have to sign a confidentiality   agreement and promise , among other things   , not to write a tell-all book.

It's learned Alejandra refused to sign a confidentiality agreement and is in "active negotiations"for a tell all.

And there's more . Alejandra was demanding money from the   MJ Estate.

When Alejandra was in Japan last month with her kids , everyone assumed dhe was going away for goodand Katherine temporarily  moved out to remodel the house .

But Alejandra came back, moved back in and refused to leave , stalling the remodeling .

Sources say  Katherine's lawyers called the cops last week  to forcibly evict Alejandra , but the police said they couldn't do anything without an eviction  order ... which is why the Estate is going to court.
Stay tuned, updates as they become available .......the MJ saga continues.

Jermaine Jackson : Still Aboard

Jamaine Jackson ... who hasn't been spotted stateside since that  whole  Africa/passspot/child support   mess ...now popped up in Cannes last night to  attend   the NRJ  Music Awards .

For  a guy who feels he should  only pay  $125  a month in child support , he sure travels a  lot.

Just wondering :Ever wondered why MJ wanted nothing to do with his family  ? All they ever expected was to sponge off him.

Yes  there was once a Jackson5 and soon after MJ was in the forefront of the band and that's  why people came to see the Jacksons' . Flash forward ; MJ goes his own way  and did fantastic  things and the brothers did nothing .

With the money Katherine gets ...Jermaine will get money. How else did Jermaine get to Africa   ?

But  the question  still remains , who is  wearing the most make-up ???

David Duchovny : Thinks Six Seasons Is Enough in "Terms of Backsides"

Californication was picked up for a fifth season , and   David Duchovny  is understandable happy with that announcement.

To an extent ...

After all, there's so many episodes a man can bear to bare. "that's probably why I should stop after six seasons , in terms of backsides," he said. But beyond just shots of David's derriere , the hit Showtime drama has heart and  soul , especially when it comes to  family.

The heart of the show and what prevents it from spiraling off into nothing is the fact this guy does love this woman and he loves his daughter and he wants it  to  work, but   he   keeps screwing up,"  David says . "And they 're all screwing up. So I think without  that  we don't have a show.   
Thank  I will take a peep and look see.

Who Should Be King : Charles Or William ???

All this fabulous hoopla over Prince William and Kate Middleton's upcoming wedding  is, perhaps , overshadowing a less happy concern regarding the second heir to the throne .
 
Among the royal types   sources has been speculating about all things William and kate , there's a lot of debate over who should be Britain's next King  :  Prince Charles ...or , his son , Prince William .
 
And just when , exactly , will Kate Middlrton become  Queen Kate ?
 
Discussions have begun among Commonwealth leaders on whether to change the law of sucession to the British throne .
 
Indeed , our friends in the UK confirm there exists a not  unsubstantial feeling from the general population that Charles should step aside and let his son take the throne ....when that time comes.
 
But where does the Queen stand on this matter  ? No one knows  , and it's weird .
 
Sources  says they are  "pretty shocked" that the Queen hasn't released any kind of reaction  ... official or otherwise  ... about gaining momentun that Charles should not be king.
 
"[The Queen] sees and hears everything her people are feeling  , she's very perceptive and sensitive to public opinions ," dishes our Royal  insider . "And she knows very well there's strong sentiment for Prince William to be King ."
 
SSpeculation as to who will take the throne  has been going own for years , although the debate has certainly heated up ever since William's engagement to Kate Middleton .
 
Even though Prince William has spoken out that he would like his father to take over the throne  , for once it's a woman's opinion that really  matters.
 
"The fact that the Queen hasn't said anything about it  , one way or the other , speaks volumes , it really does ."
So who would you like to see king ???
What a lovely couple ...so much in love .

Joan Rivers : Fox Can Go F**k Themselves Over Sarah Palin Controversy

Joan Rivers says Fox News can go f**k themselves  after canceling her Thursday appearance  on the network's morning show  for what she claims is retaliation for some biting comments she made about  Fox contributor Sarah Palin .

Why so riled up , Joan ?  It all started when the loud-mouthed legend told TMZ over the weekend  that critics were  "right"  to blame Sarah Palin for the tragedy in Tuson , Arizona . Reports surfaced  on Wednesday that Fox heard the diss and nixed Joan and daughter Melissa's visit on 'Fox and Friends.'

Melissa told the HDNet show  with Rob Shutter , they were cancel  on Fox because of what Joan said about Sarah Palin .

The top-rated news network denies that Joan's comments had anything to do with the cancellation , rather , the morning show was simply over-booked .

The situation begs the question  : Did  Sarah Palin herself call this one in to her Fox bosses  in  order to punish Joan ? The comic certainly  hopes the wantabe  presidential contender has better things to do than listen to her . "If Sarah is listening to what we say , we would be in trouble ,"  Joan says .

Asked  whether she'll accepet an invitation to come back to 'Fox and Friends' , Joan went hardcore , saying , "they can go f**k themselves ."

Joan had another reason for being upset  , namely that this brouhaha has led her to regret voting for Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol on 'Dancing With The Stars.'

"I actually voted for her terrible daughter over david Hasselhoff ," she says . "I should've voted for David , they both sucked as dancers .

Just a thought : You got that right Joan ,you should have voted for David , now we know why Bristol  lasted so long on 'Dancing With The Stars.'

Brooklyn Decker : "I'm A Model , I'm Not Sure What I Bring To The Table"

Brooklyn Decker is practically the reiging champ of 'Hollywood Hottest' list  but the model turned actress doesn't seemed to be clued in on her Holloywood buzz.

She's the star of Adam Sandler's  new flick , 'Just Go With It ' ; but she is not convinced that she can called herself  an 'actress' ; I'm a model . I'm not sure what I bring to the table . I can't say 'actress' unless someone  says I'm halfway decent at it .

A form of severe self-deprecation ? Maybe . But it seems as though Esquire's February cover girl isn't buying her own hype . Named after a  horse  (not the NYC borough), although we don't see an equine resemblance , one thing that Brooklyn does consider herself  "halfway decent at " is giving advice to guys , after all, she snagged her tennis superstar  hubby , Andy Roddick , when she was only 22-years-old .

According to Brooklyn , it's all about keeping it real and ditching the strategy "game."

"Men need to learn to put everything on the table ," she  explains . "Just put everythimg on the table ," and when it comes to the game playing ...enough already."

American Idol Embracing Kinder, Gentler Attitude

 Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson, the new "American Idol" judging team, don't make fun of awkward contestants, struggling and sweating their way through pop songs. Instead, they encourage them  to try again or keep working at it or even  become a disc jockey instead of a singer.
It seems the essence of Simon Cowell has been exorcised from the 10th season of "Idol" (premiering Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST). If clips of the first series of auditions are any indication, Tyler and Lopez will be hugging and kissing more "Idol" wannabes in their inaugural season than Cowell ever did in his nine nasty years on the Fox singing competition.

"I think with every artist — and Jennifer and Steven are legendary artists — you have a lot of warmth and a lot of nurturing," said Jackson, the lone original judge remaining on the panel. "That's what happens. We've seen it in other seasons when we've had artists come in and mentor the singers. They really love on these kids, and I think that's good."

It's not the first time "Idol" has injected such niceness into its permanent judging panel. One year ago, viewers were preparing for chipper talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who acknowledged she had no music industry experience, to take a seat behind the table. She left after one season because she said it was hard to judge people and hurt their feelings.

The departures of DeGeneres, Cowell and two-term judge Kara DioGuardi have paved the way for a new kind of "Idol," one that will either bounce back from a ratings slump or slip farther away from the top spot. American viewers have never known an "Idol" that doesn't feature Cowell's rolling eyes, one-liners or antagonistic adjectives. Will they embrace it?

"We're certainly back to having fun," said executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, who rejoined the singing competition after a two-year hiatus. "At some point along the way, and we're certainly all guilty of it, we started taking ourselves too seriously. I know the ratings are a serious game, but as far as I'm concerned, my job and their job is to generate fun."
I'm all for that Nigel but a lot of viewers thoroughly enjoyed the acid tongued Simon and the sometimes acute humiliation of contestants. Good luck.

Such an attitude adjustment isn't confined to "Idol." Paula Abdul, the original heart of the "Idol" panel, has taken her fairy godmother routine to the new CBS hip-shaking competition "Live to Dance," where she's quick to remind everyone that she's now serving as a mentor — not a judge — though she and her expert team do give gold stars to worthy dancers.

Regis Leaves Live

Veteran broadcaster Regis Philbin says he's retiring from his weekday talk show.  His decision to leave 'Live!' leaves viewers wondering who can take his place. Regis, 79, made the announcement at the start of Tuesday morning's "Live With Regis and Kelly," which he has hosted for a quarter-century, most recently sharing hosting duties with Kelly Ripa. Philbin said he would be stepping down from the show around the end of the summer, but he didn't specify a departure date.
 We wonder why Regis has chosen this particular year to retire. Was he getting pressure from his wife Joy?  Or perhaps Disney studios, who produce the show, have given him the push. He has been having a few memory lapses for the past few years  when it comes to names and places. He's such a beloved icon, a few memory gaps shouldn't matter. As long as Regis wants to work, he should. He's charming, entertaining and has a lively wit. He has always known how at laugh at himself. He is genuinely interested in people and can make you feel relaxed like you're with an old friend, which, indeed, he is to most of us who grew up watching him on one show or another. Sad to see  you go Rege.

As was previously reported , Oksana's attorneys have asked Mel to pay more than $1 million in legal fees.

For Mel , it seems harder to swallow than a Ricky Gervals  monologue.
******************************************************************
Oksana And Her Lawyer ...Here's A freebie
Mel Gibson should be a fan of Oksana Grigorieva's new lawyer ...Liza  Bloom ... 'cause unlike the cavalcade of lawyers trying to stick it to Mel with Oksana's legal bills ...Bloom is working for free .

Bloom tells TMZ , she dicided to work for Oksana  pro bono  because she felt it was important to support a (alleged) domestic abuse victim .

The way things are going , that should be in the year 2048.

There must be something in the water these days! Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban revealed today (January 17) that they are the parents of a baby girl.

The “Australia” actress and her country-crooner hubby welcomed their biological daughter Faith Margaret Kidman Urban via a surrogate mother on December 28th.
"Our family is truly blessed, and just so thankful, to have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret," the family says in a statement.
"No words can adequately convey the incredible gratitude that we feel for everyone who was so supportive throughout this process, in particular our gestational carrier."

Wow! That's how you have a baby if you have lots of money. No Fuss, no muss, no baby fat to get rid of, no pain and aggravation.  However, the result is the same; a healthy, bouncing baby girl. Congratulations to the family and long life to their little darling.

Pollapalooza ! Dating Dish --- In The Closet And Out !

We never get tired of hearing who's dating whom in hollywood  , and we certainly jump at the opportunity  to predict the next hot romance , fake or not ! Problem is , we can't really decide , ultimately , just what kind of romancing  James Franco and Oprah Winfrey perfer .

And what about Jake Gyllenhaal ? We know he has a thing for blondes , but if Franco turns to the other team ...would they  just not make the most perfect couple ? Of course we'd have talk to talk to Jake about it , 'dammit.'

Here's who else is creating a sexy uproar :
Over half of you were convinced Oprah ranks a big zero on the gaybar , and you felt that Piers Morgan should stick to other topics .

Just because Oprah runs the world  doesn't mean she must be a lesbian , right ?  Now all that's left to question is whearter Steadman will ever put a ring on it ...

But what if hottie James Franco came out of the closet ?  We asked you whether a homosexual card would change your opinion of the hunky actor .

More than 90 percent said that you will continue to love J.P. , gay or straight  , and a lot of you are on the same page  . This is the 21st century , after all . There is no need for some kind of heartfelt disclosure interview on Ellen if  Franco switches to men . Nonstory , as it should be .

Now to poor Jake Gyllenhaal ... With Jaylor long gone  and Franco possibly down for dudes  , just need to ask you whether Gyllenhaal should hunt for a brunette or simply make Brokeback Mountain his reality .

More than 30 percent suggested Jake should stay put onthe heter-bandwagon and settle down with  Anna Hathaway . The two worked side-by-side in  'Love and Other Drugs  and Brokeback Mountain,' so the chemistry must be there . They also agreed that Anne could use a nice guy like Jake , especially after her last guy ended up behind bars . What rotten luck !

But then , close behind sweetie Anne for Jake's next proposed honey was Mila Kunis  and Mr. Franco , both tied at 25 percent  in second place , and everyone was happy to agree that Jake choose a darker mate (those blondes have been such trouble for him), and heck , both are  uber-attractive possibilities .

Let's take a look : I don't get it , why is it the  'WE' must know who's gay or not ? Your sexually does not define who you are . It only  defines who you SCREWED ... and that is not one's business  !  it is fun to find out who's been hiding in the closet or under the bed  ...lets just except  them as they are  .

Not to worry girls .... Jake is still into gals .
