Trump Town Girls asked the age-old question of whether or not a hot girl can also do a job. And according to the promo materials, the answer is maybe—apparently, in the real-estate business, hotness is both a weakness and an asset. “The male clients love them, but their wives and girlfriends are not their biggest fans. If they are in a negotiation with another broker, the broker assumes they’re dumb just because they’ve won a few beauty pageants… Then of course there is the jealousy of the long-term brokers, the older men and women who worked their way up in the ranks, who fought to get an interview with the Trumps, and the other gorgeous women at the firm who refuse to use their looks to their advantage and find flirting for the job to be appalling.” While we can’t honestly say that we would have enjoyed—or even watched—this atrocious-sounding production, the American public may have benefitted from more footage of Donald Trump … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Thinks He’s a Reality-TV ‘Ratings Machine.’ History Tells a Different Story.

Absolutely. Being a father is the one thing I knew I was going to be in life. I knew I was going to be a father when I was 8 years old. What I told you before is, “The more secure a man is at home, the higher and farther he can fly outside of it.” I think that’s very true. When you have children, and have a family, a very beautiful, natural law comes into your life. You have people now who you need to shepherd and guide through life that won’t be okay if you’re not there for them. There’s something very freeing about that. But I’ve definitely become more selfish. I’m a big fan of the word “selfish,” as an attribute. The old, “Put the oxygen mask on the plane on yourself before anyone else because you’re no good to them if you ain’t breathing.” So I’ve become a little more selfish. But at the same time, when you get a family, that’s number one.

Over the past few years, the photogenic, oft-shirtless star of epic duds like Fool’s Gold and Surfer, Dude has undergone a stunning transformation into one of the most exciting and unpredictable character actors in Tinseltown. Film writers have dubbed it the McConaissance, and right now, the 43-year-old Texan is firing on all cylinders. Last year, he turned in several wildly disparate performances in a coterie of acclaimed indie films, ranging from a deranged murderer who makes poor Gina Gershon fellate a fried chicken drumstick in Killer Joe to an over-the-hill male stripper with a pair of ass-less leather chaps and a dream in Magic Mike. The latter turn earned him an Independent Spirit Award and many felt warranted an Oscar nod. … [Read more...] about Matthew McConaughey In ‘Dallas Buyers Club’: From Bongos to Oscar Contender
