Could it be a holiday miracle in the making?
Matt Lauer was spotted Saturday with estranged wife and former model Annette Roque and the couple’s 14-year-old daughter Romy, E! Online reported.
The family – minus two other children – was seen together at a horse farm in Sag Harbor, N.Y., on the eastern end of Long Island, the report said. But Roque was still seen apparently without her wedding ring.
Just three days earlier, Roque was seen leaving the offices of a New York City law firm, amid reports that she plans to divorce Lauer following his dismissal from NBC in November over allegations of sexual misconduct.
The accusations included reports that Lauer had affairs with NBC interns and even kept sex toys in his office.
Lauer issued an apology soon after.
After Lauer’s firing, the couple’s neighbors said Roque had become known as a “sad wife” in their Long Island town, where she was reportedly rarely seen with Lauer. But the former “Today” co-anchor was said to be living with his family since his firing.
Lauer and Roque met in 1997 and married in 1998. Their first child, Jack, was born in 2001, followed by Romy in 2004 and Thijs in 2006.
Roque previously filed for divorce while pregnant with Thijs, but the couple later reconciled.
Bill Maher Defends Kavanaugh
On his show Friday night, Bill Maher and his panel got into a heated debate over the “new” allegations about Brett Kavanaugh – yes, the ones even his accuser can’t remember. Maher even turned on his liberal comrades, adopting the position that rehashing events from when Kavanaugh was 17 years old hurt the Democrats in 2018… and could hurt them again.
Citing polling from 2018, Maher said that Democrats could have done better in the midterm elections had it not been for the Kavanaugh hearings: “People did not like going after a guy for what he did in high school. It looked bad and now Democrats are talking about impeaching him again?” Maher said.
Guest Andrew Sullivan seemed to agree. “He probably did some shitty things in high school drunk,” he said.
And when liberal guest Heather McGhee tried to jump in, asking “May the woman please speak about what this felt like?”, Sullivan shot her down immediately: “Please don’t play that card. You’re making my point.”
When Kavanaugh’s temperament was brought up, Sullivan responded: “You try maintaining a good temperament when you’re being accused of something, you had no idea it was coming at you, came at the last minute, and that happened years and years and years ago.”
As McGhee tried to make the point that being a Supreme Court justice isn’t just a “normal job”, Maher immediately fired back: “So you’re saying at 17 you have to have your fully formed character?”
He continued: “Live in reality, man! That’s who they put up. We don’t have the votes, and now we lost seats! Are we gonna do it again? Ruth Bader Ginsburg said glowing things about him… What were you like at 17?”
Comedian Owen Benjamin Banned From Buford, Georgia Community Center
Owen Benjamin, a long-time Comedian and proud Christian, featured in several times in both Comedy Central Specials and Jay Leno, as well as several Movies and TV-Shows such as Sullivan & Son and ‘The House Bunny’, has been banned from a tax payer funded community center in Buford, Georgia after attempting to use the venue for an upcoming tour.
The venue is notable as one he has previously performed at and was asked to come back to. This came as a surprise to Owen as Georgia is a notably ‘conservative’ state. Currently he does have a show lined up in Portland with more shows coming by the day.
Kanye’s Red Pill Wave Among Celebrities Is Scaring Leftists
If there’s one thing that scares the establishment more than pop culture figures like Kanye becoming outspoken supporters of Trump and free expression in general, it’s that trend catching on to other pop culture figures. There’s one thing Trump couldn’t by himself and that was to get the mainstream entertainment & music industry on his side, considering many of their allegiances are with the Democratic party. Kanye West’s no apologetic approach is not only inspiring to those being attacked for “freedom of speech / thought” but also is getting him publicity, good & bad, depending on your perspective.
Observer Reports: As corporate progressivism vies against Trumpian nationalism for the future of America’s Empire, celebrities are inciting their own upheaval within Hollywood.
American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis warned for years of an impending shift against progressive values in a town long touted as a bastion of liberalism. Following Kanye West’s controversial break with liberalism over Twitter and TMZ, Ellis is seeing his premonition unfold.
“I don’t know if Kanye was red pilled exactly,” said Ellis, referencing how individuals are converted to conservatism online similar to Neo’s awakening in the Matrix. “Kanye does not do this in a systematic or literal way: it’s sweeping, metaphorical and inchoate and in the age of digital literal-mindedness.”
In the age of digital literal-mindedness, Ellis and West, who were reported to be collaborating on a film together during the Obama years, became contrarian thinkers of the entertainment industry by flirting on the edges of the Overton window—the range of topics and viewpoints widely viewed as socially acceptable.
