We're kicking off with an excellent selection of interviews
That's right, we're streaming Dr. Ruth's '80s interviews with celebrities, rock stars and lots of special guests. Dr. Ruth's shows are known for their mix of on-air therapy sessions and candid celebrity interviews. We preserved these 12 episodes in their original format, so you'll get the full Ruth experience. For our first batch, we bring you Jerry Seinfeld, LL Cool J, Burt Reynolds, Anthrax, Gloria Steinem and more... Watch.
An eclectic mix of Dr. Ruth programming from 1984-1992
Our first batch of episodes highlights the diversity of Dr. Ruth's programming. From the very popular mid '80s program "Good Sex with Dr. Ruth," to 1989's teen advice show "What's Up Dr. Ruth," you'll get the feel for Dr Ruth's signature formats and style.
In these episodes, you'll see Ruth answer letters on the air, stage short therapy sessions with troubled couples in studio, and answer phone calls from the TV audience watching at home. There are other surprises now and then too, but you'll just have to watch the episodes to see what happens.
What Dr. Ruth Westheimer did for the conversation around sex in the '80s broke the mold and had a real social impact while being wildly entertaining. We're honored to help preserve this legacy. Start watching tonight!

Michael's Musings

Cruel Summer?
Michael Shinafelt
This week was the end of a special chapter in my life. Yes, minions it was the series finale of Pretty Little Liars, a show that has always been there for me when I needed top notch escapist entertainment most. With a complete dash of reality to balance it.

Also this past week, June 25th 2017 marked the marriage of my awesome niece Shauna Waters to one Nick Kastner in Cabo San Lucas

Yep, this has been en eventful week, are you ready for what else I have to toss off your way? Well here it comes!

Sarcasm is my brains self defense mechanism for when I'm about to be murdered

I saw the Baywatch movie this week on the Sony Pictures Lot. Dumb, but fun!

Follow the yellow brick road. Why not?!

The End(Game) Is Near

1
The Secrets End Tonight!
l-r Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse, Lucy Hale & Troian Bellisario

Tonight is the two hour series finale of one of my favorite shows ever, Pretty Little Liars, if you haven't seen it, don't judge me, and if you have and are a fan like myself, well you get it!

I remember when PLL first came on the air it received enormous buzz thanks to the savvy use of Social Media. The buzz was strong, it was a noise that I ignored at first. How could a gay man in his 40's possibly get into a show aimed a tween girls on ABC Family (now Freeform.)

Cut to one day when I had nothing really pressing to do, I decided to check out my On Demand and saw it listed, I thought: OK let's give it a shot. I was hooked and immediately binge watched the whole season.

The thing that strikes me odd is the people who watch the show and complain about who  "A" is being drawn out too long. To me that was never really the point of the show, sure it made it fun and who doesn't love a good freaky suspense/mystery/horror show. The real driving force behind the show has always been the characters and story. Besides think about it everyone on the show really pretty much was "A" even though there was the big "A" reveal - all of them have done some shady things that gave them all some "A" ness.

So tonight after seven entertaining and fun seasons it all comes to an end with the reveal of Uber "A." While I do think it is time for the show to bid farewell and I can't wait for the biggest reveal, I will miss seeing the "Liars" every week. 

Hey there's always reruns!

Just Because...Margot Robbie

M-I-C...
Margot Robbie

Just because it's Monday, just because she's a beauty & mostly just because she is wearing a Mickey Mouse T-Shirt, I present this image of actress Margot Robbie.

Even though I did not see Suicide Squad I am sure most of you like me know her best from her role as Harley Quinn in the comic book based movie.

The last I heard she wrapped playing Tonya Harding of all things (isn't she too attractive to be portraying her?) in the bio based film I, Tonya.

Margot's greatest achievement IMHOP is having accomplished something I never thought possible. Yep, she has managed to add a whole other dimension to the icon known as Mickey Mouse.

Think about it, but not too hard, OK?

Happy Monday indeed.

Time For A Photobomb...!

Bombs Away!
Jimmy Fallon, Cameron Diaz & Tourists
It's the weekend, Sunday to be exact and I am having a damned good time thus far. So when I came across this funtastic image of Jimmy Fallon & Cameron Diaz photobombing tourists, well I just had to publish it here on Entertain Me!

This photo pretty much sums up how I am feeling right here, right now and I wanted to share the levity. Feel my silliness, feel it!

As I sit here drinking my smoothie pre-spin class writing this, Jimmy and Cameron's antics are serving as inspiration for me as to what kind of shenanigans I intend to pull on others.

That's right peeps, watch out you never know where I am and what I might do.

Kiefer Sutherland On Death Row

Dear "Shirley Jean"
Kiefer Sutherland

Shirley you jest?
Kiefer Sutherland’s cinematic “Shirley Jean” video, which tells the story of a man's last night on death row, taking the form of a goodbye letter to a woman he once loved, premiered on CMT channels and platforms June 21.

"It was the one song on the album that obviously was not a very personal story from my own life," Sutherland tells Rolling Stone Country. "I had a huge respect for Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard. These guys wrote about the dirtier side of life and the tougher aspects of life. Cash realized he wasn't a ‘bad guy,’ and that maybe some of these people in prison aren’t 'bad guys.' He gave them a kind of dignity that I really respected. He created an avenue of forgiveness that I don't think was as available at that time. I love the way he did that. So I really wanted to write a song about that."

“Shirley Jean” is the third video releases from his debut album DOWN IN A HOLE (click here to download).

Sutherland is currently in Europe playing sold out shows after a nationwide U.S. tour in May. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets to additional dates on sale now (tour dates below).

Recently, Sutherland performed “Calling Out Your Name” on “The Talk,” and has also performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “The View.”  Sutherland also graced the cover of Guitar Aficionado, Goldmine Magazine and Collectible Guitar issues.

Sutherland, known for his starring role in the ABC series “Designated Survivor” and Fox series "24," also starred in movies like “Stand By Me,” “The Lost Boys,” “Young Guns,” “Flatliners,” “A Few Good Men,” “A Time to Kill,” “Dark City” “Melancholia” and most recently, a western called “Forsaken.”

"Summertime, and the livin' is easy" - Ella Fitzgerald 

In case you didn't register, Summer officially began yesterday. Yes minions it's on! Which of course made me think of the song Summertime, sung by Ella Fitzgerald. However my first exposure to it was the cover by Janis Joplin

For the longest time I thought Joplin to be the originator of the seasonal song, obviously I thought wrong.

Que sera sera - Move Over and Let's Get This Party Started!

Summertime & Zac Efron Is...

Hanging Loose
Zac Efron
It's finally here, today is the first official day of Summer 2017! One of my fave things about the summer is guys going commando and freeballing. Thus when I saw these images of my boy Zac Efron with VPL under his sweats I stopped and stared, then stared some more.

Yes, minions it's summertime & Zac Efron is freeballing

My gift to you, because of the giver I am for the first day of summer is  Zac Efron with quite the view.

Stay cool today men and be hot like Zac and release your Kraken too!

Let Them Eat Cake!

Surrender The Pink
Lisa Vanderpump
"The crown is heavy, darlings, so just leave it where it belongs" - Lisa Vanderpump

As we all know celebrities do everything bigger than us mere mortals. Lisa Vanderpump is no exception. Check out her decadent Birthday cake, fit, well, for a  Queen. Lisa wears her crown well,

Frosted to the max in her favorite color, pink, duh. Adorned by two giant and I might add, ahem, quite thick sparklers...(wink, nudge) Lisa must be feeling her inner Marie Antoinette at her 56th celebration of her date of birth.

As an added bonus the staff and people dining at Pump where the Queen was presented her cake all sang HBD to her.

Yep, leave the crown where it is people, because nobody wears it better.

Monday Motivation

They Are Some Motivation!
l-r
Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston & Zac Efron
Since I have lost ten pounds, I have hit a plateau that the struggle is real to cross it. I have yet to lose more, and trust me I need to!

This is the week I am going to do it, I can and will. What better way for me to keep my goals in mind than posting not one, but three yummy shirtless celebrities. Hey, it's better in threes.

I would like to thank these studs for their service in motivating me this week: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and of course my boy Zac Efron

While I am realistic and know I will never look as cut as any of these dudes, I merely want the motivation to look my personal best. A trimmer me who can wear my fun clothes again, meaning my more fashion forward things in my closet that don't compliment a belly.

Something that is completely achievable if I stick to the script.

Happy Monday, get motivated!

Who's Your Daddy?

Call Me Daddy
Michael Shinafelt

Happy Father's Day Everyone! 

I was not really sure what to write about today since my father passed away from cancer quite a spell ago. 

Something a little cheeky perhaps, yeah I am sort of feeling that way thus the byline and accompanying image. Mixed with something a little reverent, yep, that's where this next part comes in.

F#ck Cancer! Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide. It has touched so many people's lives that I know, including mine, and is a hateful disease. It shows no mercy and leaves the host ravaged.

Sometimes it's a slow painful death in the case of my Father and other times it's quick and painful. Either way it's merciless.

Currently I can name off a few people who I know it is working it's voodoo on and I hope they beat it. This shit deserves to be put in it's f#cking place!

Me & My Dad
So, I am taking Father's Day and dedicating it to the memory of mine, Bill Shinafelt February 23, 2009 who passed away from lung cancer.

Love Is A Dirty Word


Let's Give Them Something To Think About

Tilted Field, in association with VS. Theatre Company, is proud to present the World Premiere of Giovanni Adams’ new play Love is a Dirty Word, opening in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 17th at 8:00pm. The solo work, performed by Adams, with musical accompaniment by Arturo Lopez, is about a young man finding redemption when he is deemed too dirty to love. This autobiographical piece is rooted in Mr. Adams’ experience as a black, queer, Christian man crossing lines of identity, affinity and ideology. Love is a Dirty Word was developed and directed by Becca Wolff (No Static at All, Outstanding Solo Show, 2015 NY Fringe Festival). The play will run through Saturday, July 15, 2017 at VS. Theatre on Pico. For more information please visit http://vstheatre.org and https://www.facebook.com/events/835544223260279.

The story begins and ends in Adams’ hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. The songs are originals by Mr. Adams and arranged by Mr. Lopez. Designers include Melissa Trn (costumes) and Rachel Myers (set). The 80-minute show will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00pm at VS. Theatre, which is located at 5453 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90019. The first show on Friday, June 16th is a preview performance. Opening Night is set for Saturday, June 17th. Tickets are $30 each and available by calling the box office at 323-739-4411 or online by visiting Brown Paper Tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2951780

Adams and Wolff began developing the show in the summer of 2015 when “...the perceived abject otherness of blackness was being made visible in the most horrific fashion. The spectacle of black death gone viral was a wake up call and a reminder that to be born black in America is to live with a heightened awareness of your out-of-placeness,” says Adams. “Safety can be real hard to find. This got me thinking about my own complex relationship to love and home. Is there such a thing as being too different – too dirty to love? That’s the seed of the story that we’re trying to tell. This story is a meditation of my childhood memories in Mississippi, accompanied with music and images. It traces my journey back home to reconnect with the little boy buried on the inside of me…a liberating act of love."

Just Because...Gerard Butler

Nothing Comes Between Me & My Kilt
Gerard Butler
After the week that was would could be better than kicking off the weekend with Gerard Butler? Well of course the answer to that is Gerard Butler in a kilt, duh!

When I saw this image of the humpy Butler dude rocking a kilt I just had to share it with all of you and fellow Gerard lover author M.E. Franco, who I am sure will make mention of him again in our annual Halloween chat.

As if, he couldn't get any sexier, he had to wear one of the hotter things a man can wear. Why is a kilt hot you may ask? The answer should be obvious, but I will extrapolate, because most men do not wear underwear beneath them and you start hoping that certain something that the guy is packing will somehow flop out so you can get an eyeful.

Yes, it's that whole accidental, or perhaps on purpose, voyeur aspect that accompanies such a wardrobe choice that makes it highly titillating. 

It's safe to bet Gerry is free balling under his kilt and I for one want to take a look...in fact I'm going to go do that right now!

Have a good one!

Contemplating My Navel

It's that time of the week again where I am mostly peace, love and light, and a little go f#ck yourself. 

Trying to keep the negative to a minimum because there just isn't enough of that going down every single day.

Shall we commence? Yes, we shall...

Best headline of the week: Wonder Woman Tops Tom Cruise - cheeky!

During the week, it's the Tranny Bike

What are you? A sex machine with a cash register between your legs?


This week on Pretty Little Liars Aria got busted for being shady AF, Hanna & Caleb got married, Spencer & Toby had sex, only two episodes left, and the world keeps turning.

All Demi Moore wants for Christmas is her two front teeth

Ooooooooo, I too am dying to know if Beyonce is in labor, not!

Why is it everyone is so obsessed with seeing celebrity babies? They're going to look like a baby, we've all seen one before, get a grip.

Lipstick & Muffin Girl, think about it...

The first thing I do when I get home is take off my pants

On this season of the Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan is a total jealous loser

Moore Teeth

Less Is Moore?
Demi Moore
Bet you'd never thought you'd ever hear the phrase "Moore Teeth"...

Well in the case of Demi Moore "All She Wants For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth?" Yes, Virginia she really does and I am sure will be getting them via cosmetic dentistry with or without Santa's help. 

Apparently Demi told Jimmy Fallon she sheared them off due to stress. Which is entirely possible if she grinds them in her sleep, which it sounds like she does. 

Even though she said she managed to take out her two front teeth Demi showed a photo on the Tonight Show missing only one. Hey one missing looks startling enough people could you imagine if she went teeth to the wall and showed both gone?!

Demi was on the show to promote her upcoming appearance with Ty Burrell as a married couple on the prowl for a three way in Rough Night.

In that particular case less, teeth would be Moore. Think about it, but not too hard.

It Rough

Rough Night?
l-r
Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Kravitz & Ilana Glazer
There are a lot of rough things in this world. Some rougher than others. Well this isn't one of them.

Check out Scarlett Johansson, Zoe Kravitz & Ilana Glazer at a photocall for their upcoming comedy Rough Night. Doesn't look too rough to me, how about you, do you think this is rough?

From what I gather from the trailer the comedy is about a group of friends having a bachelorette party and a male stripper they hire ends up dead. Now that scenario actually does sound rough.

But probably not as rough as that one night I had when I was 35 and...yep there's another one that will be in the book I am writing. So you'll just have to wait for it.

Hope your week isn't too rough!
