Bill Cosby plans to go on tour following his release from prison, but there’s one club where he’s not welcome.
The owner of New York City’s Comedy Cellar tells The New York Post
that he won’t allow the comedian to perform on his stage.
While Aziz Ansari and Louis C.K. played the club after their sex scandals, Comedy Cellar owner Noam Dworman says that “comparing Bill Cosby to these other guys is absurd.” Dworman points out that the other two comedians were not charged with a crime.
Cosby’s rep, Andrew Wyatt, tells TMZ he’s not worried. “That’s one club owner, and in the words of the King of R&B Bobby Brown, ‘It’s his prerogative to do what he wants to do.’ ”
Hilaria Baldwin has more to say about cultural identity.
Alec Baldwin‘s wife shared a long message to Instagram about how the couple explained to their six kids that people can feel like they’re part of more than one culture.
Hilaria didn’t mention her recent scandal where she was accused of faking a Spanish accent and misleading people about her heritage.
In the post, she writes, “When you are multi, it can feel hard to belong. You are constantly going back and forth, trying to be more this or more that. You feel you have to explain why you are the way you are, trying to fit into a world of labels when there might not be one that perfectly defines you. You will never quite fit in because the other parts of you shape and influence all your parts.”
She added that she wants “to normalize the fact that we are all unique—our culture, languages, sexual orientations, religions, political beliefs are ALLOWED TO BE FLUID. What I had to learn through a very painful experience is that many people relate…so, if you are suffering, please know that a loving group see your validity and belonging. We love & accept you, just as you are.”
RICHARD BRANSON made his space flight yesterday . . . basically becoming the first guy to build his own rocket and blast himself into orbit.
At 71, he’s also the second-oldest guy in space. JOHN GLENN was 77 when he went up on the shuttle in 1998.
Branson’s Virgin Galactic flight went 53 miles above the New Mexico desert, achieving weightlessness for three to four minutes. The ship had five other crew members.
Branson was originally supposed to go up later this summer, but he moved his flight up after JEFF BEZOS announced HE was going up there on July 20th. Branson claims he was NOT trying to outdo Bezos, but . . . yeah.
Bezos sent his congratulations to Branson on Instagram
and said, quote, “Can’t wait to join the club.”
the event with STEPHEN COLBERT
as master of ceremonies.
