‘EPIC!’ Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar ‘torture’ Jason Hervey [pic]


Oh my. D.J. Tanner vs. Winnie Cooper! Twitchy favorite Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner on “Full House,” is on the cast of the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” And so is Danica McKellar, who played the much-loved Winnie Cooper on “The Wonder Years.”


We are excited too! “The Wonder Years” actor Jason Hervey is excited as well … yet tortured. Why?


Well, the ladies have a fix to end the torture, Jason.



This Twitter user is trying to figure out who will win:


You’d win the prize for remembering weird sitcom factoids, sir!

One thing is clear: ABC is the big winner here. A DJ Tanner vs. Winnie Cooper face-off is drawing in potential viewers.



But what about Jason Hervey’s brother on “The Wonder Years”? What is Fred Savage thinking?

‘Ugh’: Andy Levy unhappy with Chris Martin/ Jennifer Lawrence coupling

NY Post: Comedy writers don’t make fun of Obama because he’s ‘unmockable’


Editor’s note: This post has been updated to correct the wrong premise of the post. The original title of ‘This is a joke, right?’ New York Post: Comedy writers don’t make fun of Obama because he is ‘completely unmockable’ has been changed to the current title which more accurately reflects the NY Post article.

The author’s intent was erroneously mischaracterized. We regret the error and apologize to Mr. Smith. We are also including his tweets here:


Mr. Smith’s article, which actually takes the entertainment industry to task for shielding Obama, can (and should) be read here.

The original post follows below as Twitchy has a policy of transparency and does not unpublish posts.

Here is the New York Post’s rationale as to why many comedy writers avoid making fun of President Obama:


Unfortunately, no.


Apparently not.


Then again.

Trump Entertainment files for bankruptcy


Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc., a company founded by Donald Trump, will file for bankruptcy this week.

Via the Press of Atlantic City:

The company oversees the Trump Plaza, which will close on Sept. 16, and the Trump Taj Mahal, which has been the subject of bankruptcy rumors for weeks.

Donald Trump has a 10 percent interest in the company and has asked that it remove his name from the casinos.

We are sad for the casino employees who will lose their jobs. As for Trump, he will presumably have more time now for politics, including birther conspiracies and accusing former President George W. Bush of murder.

Fortunately for him, he’s still filthy rich (thanks in part to the large inheritance he received from his wealthy dad).

Just remember: It’s not your fault you’re not as smart as he is.

Olivia Wilde: Billions Facebook spent could have solved global problems



Actress and model Olivia Wilde thinks the $19 billion Facebook recently spent to acquire WhatsApp could have been used instead to help people around the world, and many agreed with her:


A lot of people are great at thinking of ways to solve all the world’s ills with somebody else’s money.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Wilde is worth about $8 million. That would buy quite a bit of clean water and sanitation too.


A closing pinch of irony:

N-word user Nikki Sixx calls Phil Robertson a racist ‘a-hole’ [video]


[Editor’s note: Nikki Sixx quietly deleted his tweets about Phil Robertson. Hey, Nikki, Twitchy is forever!]

Tommy Lee might be an occasional Twitchy reader, but it’s safe to say fellow Mötley Crüe member Nikki Sixx is not. In fact, the “H8 speech” hypocrite isn’t a very good reader at all.

Here’s his idiotic take on Phil Robertson, the Christian “Duck Dynasty” star suspended by A&E after comments to GQ about homosexuality and sin.


No, not really. Perhaps Nikki Sixx should, you know, try reading the actual interview instead of parroting the MSNBC spin with the rest of the tolerance bullies.


Does this statement from Robertson strike you as homophobic and racist?

My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.

However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.

But since Nikki brought up homophobia and racism, here’s a flashback:


And another flashback:


But hey, #NOH8:


Oh, and by the way:



Nikki Sixx quietly deletes late-night attacks on Phil Robertson, but Twitchy is forever!


Nikki Sixx admits he’s ‘been stupid b4 too.’

Obamacare training session for TV & film industry creeps out Allen Covert


Who better to enlist for help in pushing lies than supporters who have made a fortune selling fiction?

Hollywood, prepare for your Obamacare propaganda training:


Imagine liberal outrage from the entertainment industry if Karl Rove tried to instruct Hollywood on the “proper” way to portray a Bush administration initiative in their films and television shows:


Actor Allen Covert isn’t a big fan of anybody who might try to lecture him about Obamacare, so count him as officially creeped out by the Obamacare propaganda training session:


Can somebody in Congress push for a law requiring a film or a television show to run a disclaimer pointing out that it is a propaganda piece?
