Yesterday it was reported in the Hollywood Reporter that super-hot humanitarian Ronan Farrow was getting his own show on MSNBC. Executives there gushed that Ronan was an “original thinker” with “a certain presence and confidence” but conceded: “Still, Farrow’s television experience – and his familiarity to MSNBC viewers – is limited. Producers said that he’ll appear across MSNBC’s programs in the interim to build Farrow’s profile.” Sooooo. Let me get this straight, They’re trying to raise his profile before his show starts? Maybe… get his name in the papers? And what JUST HAPPENED TO RONAN? Out of the BLUE, his mother gave an interview to Vanity Fair, and, WHOOPS!, let it slip that MAYBE Ronan wasn’t the son of Woody Allen, after all, that maybe he was the lovechild of Frank Sinatra, conceived during an extra-marital tryst. And JUST LIKE THAT, Ronan is on EVERYBODY’S lips. Suddenly his face is plastered on every newspaper, tabloid, and blog. He’s all over Access and Extra! and Entertainment Tonight. Why, you couldn’t buy more exposure for a fledgling show! I’m just sayin’. Momma Mia’s timing is AWFULLY SUSPICIOUS.

Samantha Geimer, the girl who was raped by Roman Polanski when she was 13, has broken her silence after 35 years and written a memoir. On the cover is a haunting photo actually taken by Polanski three weeks before the rape. From The Hollywood Reporter: “The picture surfaced during Geimer’s civil suit against Polanski, which she filed in 1988 and resulted in Polanski agreeing to pay her $500,000 plus interest (a sum Geimer struggled to collect). As part of the civil suit, her attorney Lawrence Silver, who also contributes to the book, demanded Polanski turn over all the pictures he took. Even though the director turned over some photos (and all rights associated with them), Silver always believed others existed, and years later they were discovered.”
