Thursday Morning Man: James Rodriguez!

Today’s MM is James Rodriguez, a Colombian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder or winger for Spanish club Real Madrid, and the Colombia national team.

He has been praised for his technique, vision and playmaking skills.

And his good looks!

James started his professional football career in 2006 with the Colombian second division club Envigado, with which he reached the Colombian first division through the 2007 promotion. James is the second youngest Colombian player to start a professional match, playing his first match on May 21, 2006 at the age of 14.

Now 28, he signed a six-year contract with Real Madrid in 2014. He returned to the team last spring after being loaned to Bayern Munich on a two-year long deal.

WATCH: Kelly Clarkson belts out a dynamite version of Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time”

Okay, let me just say that I LOVE THIS.

Kelly Clarkson having a daytime talk show means she can sing whatever she wants and this is a very good thing. This week, she took on the Cher classic If I Could Turn Back Time and made it her own.

New single from Tom Goss, “Berlin,” is piano-driven ballad about finding another lover after learning of husband’s infidelity

Tom Goss today released his new single and black and white video for Berlin, a piano-driven ballad about finding another lover after learning of his husband’s infidelity.

I saw Tom perform this song live at The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood a few weekends ago and was deeply moved. He told the audience how amidst the darkest hour of their marriage, Tom and his husband chose an unconventional solution in an effort to steady the ship – staying married but initiating “an open relationship with boundaries.” Soon after, Tom took a trip to Berlin where he started to discover what love and sexuality meant to him. As he began to fall in love with someone else, he learned to process how he could love both a new man and his husband.

Berlin is the latest single off of Territories, an album set for release on November 13th. (Download it HERE) I’ve been a tremendous fan of Tom’s music for several years now and feel like this is among his very best.

The 13-track album, produced by Ian Carmichael (Lamb, The Orchids, One Dove), explores the many complications of love. Previous single La Bufadora depicts a fictionalized story of an abusive relationship while highlighting the reality of domestic violence within the LGBTQ community, a timely subject noting October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Statistics show that within the LGBTQ community, intimate partner violence occurs at a rate equal to or higher than that of the heterosexual community. Proceeds from the song and video will be donated to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

Wednesday Morning Man: Harris Dickinson!

Took my nephew to see Maleficent: Mistress of Evil over the weekend and was quite taken with the actor who plays Prince Phillip in the film.

Those eyes. Those lips.

Wait a minute, that’s the babe from Beach Rats!

He’s 23-year-old Harris Dickinson who was so good in that 2017 film that he was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

He went on to portray kidnapped heir John Paul Getty III in the first season of the FX drama series Trust and Liam Stewart in the science-fiction film The Darkest Minds. He also has the leading role in the upcoming prequel in the Kingsman franchise and is part of Xavier Dolan’s latest movie Matthias & Maxime which was an official selection at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

Get ready for “RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race”

Which celebrities do you want to see do drag?

VH1 today announced that “RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race,” an expansion of the Emmy® award-winning franchise, has been greenlit for 2020. The four-episode event series will feature 12 sickening celebrities as they sashay into the ‘werk’ room to compete for the first-ever title of “America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar.” The premiere date and star-studded guests will be announced soon.

In each episode, three celebrities will undergo a complete drag transformation with the help of some of the most iconic queen supremes from the series, including Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo. The celebrity cast will give it their all to compete for the title and win prize money for the charity of their choice.

“Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are,” said four-time Emmy® Award-winning host and Executive Producer, RuPaul Charles. “I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!”


Flashback: When Barbra Streisand and Ethel Merman were guests on “The Judy Garland Show”

The movie Judy starring Renee Zellweger has us thinking about Judy Garland a bit more these days.

I like that because I think she was a wonderful entertainer and gave us so many movie and television memories.

That includes her CBS series The Judy Garland Show which ran during the 1963-64 season. In all, 26 episodes were made including this one which aired on Oct. 6, 1963. The guests included Barbra Streisand and Ethel Merman!

That’s an amazing trio.

Here is the episode in its entirety.

WATCH: Ronan Farrow’s in-depth conversation with Sunny Hostin about “Catch and Kill”

Ronan Farrow discusses his harrowing book, Catch and Kill, with Sunny Hostin of The View at a Politics and Prose event. I’ve watched Farrow’s various TV interviews in recent weeks and this conversation goes so much more in-depth than any of them. It’s shocking how horrible people can be and in this conversation, Farrow takes NBC News executives, Harvey Weinstein, and attorney Lisa Bloom, among others, to task.

Tuesday Morning Man: Leonardo Sbaraglia!

Last week, I caught the superb film Pain & Glory (written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar) and just swooned over Leonardo Sbaraglia who plays the old flame of the film’s main character played by Antonio Banderas.

Sbaraglia, 49, is a prominent Argentine actor with extensive credits in both Argentina and Spain. He has also worked in Mexico, and was cast in his first English-language role in Red Lights.

He starred with Eusebio Poncela in Intacto (Intact), a 2001 thriller directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and received a Goya Award for Best New Actor. He was again nominated for the Goya Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2007 for his role of Jesús Irurre in the film Salvador.

Late Night Video: Dame Julie Andrews chats with Colbert about therapy, “Sound of Music” and more!

Dame Julie Andrews is so beloved as you can see by the reaction the audience at The Late Show With Steohen Colbert had to her tonight as she walked onto the stage. The legendary star of The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and other classic films has a new memoir out and chats with Colbert about that, about her “chum” Carol Burnett, and in my favorite part of the interview, she shares what therapy has done for her.

See a preview of Matt Bomer in “The Sinner”

For six seasons, Matt Bomer was a fixture on the USA Network as the star of White Collar.

He’s worked non-stop in film (Magic Mike, Papi Chulo, The Nice Guys), television (American Horror Story, Will & Grace, Doom Patrol, The Normal Heart), and stage (The Boys in the Band) since the end of White Collar. Now he returns to USA in a very different role for season three of The Sinner, an anthology series that examines how and why ordinary people commit brutal crimes.

Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) investigates a tragic car accident in upstate New York and uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career. Bomer stars here as Jamie, an upstanding local resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of the accident.

The wreckage includes a blood-soaked headlight and the hand of a potential victim. Jamie’s exact involvement in the accident remains unclear but he does have a visible scar.
