Just a couple of days ago, David Duchovny, who plays a sex-obsessed character on Showtime’s Californication, was Celebrity #1 at Nashville-based menswear company Johnston & Murphy, with the execs “thrilled” to have snagged him for its national print campaign launching in September in Esquire, Forbes, Fortune, Men’s Health, etc. But immediately after the shit hit the stands yesterday that he’d entered rehab for a real sex addiction, reports Page Six, a poster like the one above was removed from the Johnston & Murphy window on Madison and 54th. “We got the call from corporate this morning to take him down,” said a clerk in the Manhattan store. Does anyone see the contradiction here?

Jim Howley, our favorite contestant on World of Wonder’s transgender reality show Transamerican Love Story, gets a lot of press as an activist in the trans community. And very often he does it naked, like he did for “The Naked Truth,” this Advocate piece on “the beauty and blemish of the human body.” He tells us, “People are going to start not being able to recognize me with my clothes on!” (Photo by Eric Schwabel)
Seems the publicity caused by the miraculous first-ever birth of puppies cloned from a dead dog’s ear, may be the undoing of Bernann McKinney (top left), the woman who was the happy recipient of the pups. She’s been identified by more than one observer as Joyce McKinney (top right), the woman who was arrested in England 30 years ago for kidnapping a Mormon and holding him as a sex slave, then fled before being brought to trial.

In 1977, the former Miss Wyoming stalked her lover, a Mormon missionary, to a tabernacle in East Ewell, Surrey, allegedly kidnapped him and held him in a cottage in Devon. There, the 17-stone Kirk Anderson claimed, his petite, busty admirer tied him to a bed using mink-trimmed handcuffs, slipped into a see-through nightie and forced him into sex. At a remand hearing she declared her love for the Mormon with the immortal line: “I’d ski naked down Mount Everest with a carnation up my nose if he asked me.”
Legend has it that Jack E Jett never met a man, woman, or transgender he didn’t want to interview. Now the man Charo describes as “a bit of Johnny Carson with a touch of Merv Griffin, only insane” (and, we should add, still very much alive), will begin airing the Jack E Jett Show live on Rational Radio, 1360 AM, beginning Saturday, September 6. The show asks its listeners to open their minds without worrying that their brains might fall out. The award-winning host (and friend of WOW) has almost 2,000 hours of TV talk to his credit, many with co-host Sandra Bernhard. His shows are currently seen in syndication on three continents.
…with her own campaign and an energy policy for America. (Funny or Die)
It’s no one. New York magazine Frankensteined a creepy “new face in town” from pieces of Michelle Pfeiffer, Madonna, Angelina Jolie, and Demi Moore.
It looks as if Vanity Fair is feeling a bit jealous of all the attention garnered by The New Yorker magazine’s spoof of Obama last week and have decided to throw their own log unto the lampoon bonfire with a spoof of John and Cindy McCain. The cover illustration depicts John McCain standing with the aid of a walker inside the Oval Office while giving a “terrorist fist jab” to his wife Cindy, who is clutching a mound of prescription pills with her other hand. And to complete the picture, a portrait of George W Bush hangs above the fireplace that holds a smoldering Constitution. I guess with Vanity Fair, all is fair in love, war, and political spoofs. As it should be.
