WILD HORSES COULDN’T KEEP MICK JAGGER OFFSTAGE

Covid couldn’t stop Mick Jagger – he’s up to his old tricks performing in Amsterdam for The Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary tour. In June he tested positive, and a few concert dates had to be canceled, but Mick recovered quickly and they rescheduled. It’s hard to believe the other guys in the band didn’t get sick …

JUSTIN AND HAILEY BIEBER HEALTH PROBLEMS COVID-RELATED?

It’s kinda funny how quickly the anti-vaxxers jumped on the idea that Justin Bieber’s Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome facial paralysis might have been caused by the Covid vaccine – along with his wife Hailey’s mini-stroke a few months ago. Not true. It so happens the at the Biebers are anti-vaxxers themselves, and both already have HAD Covid, according to Roger Friedman. Naturally that leads to the possibility that it’s actually the COVID virus that caused the young couple to suffer from uncommon illnesses that typically only afflict people over 60. (long covid?) Something to consider…

THIS IS WHY WE STILL WEAR A MASK INDOORS

A few weeks ago we wrote about the horrifying fact that Covid frequently causes hair loss as a side effect. Hair starts thinning a few months after recovery and goes on for at least a year. Whether the hair grows back is not yet known. Certainly there are more than a few people in Hollywood who who be horrified by this- especially guys already worried about losing their hair. In this video Alyssa Milano (She had Covid in 2020) backs up this undesirable side effect.

DID YOU KNOW COVID MAKES YOUR HAIR FALL OUT!!


BAD NEW FOR ANYONE WHO’S HAD COVID

We just learned something absolutely TERRIFYING about Covid’s after-effects that will have a lot of people reaching for a mask. It so happens that a majority of people who catch Covid notice that their hair is falling OUT in clumps or at the very least, thinning, a few months later. So if you have survived Covid – the worst might be yet to come! We first heard this from a hairdresser who experienced this herself, along with many of her clients who had Covid. Research backed up this terrible lingering symptom and the hair thinning can go on for a year. There is no current info about whether the hair grows back. WHY isn’t everybody talking about this? If more people had known about hair loss, they might have been a LOT more careful during the pandemic. Those anti-vax macho guys who refused to wear a mask might live to regret it. Jason Momoa did have Covid but he’s lucky to have a lot of hair to begin with. Too bad Covid doesn’t make beards fall out…

ANTI-VAX PLASTIC SURGERY TWINS BOTH DEAD FROM COVID

French born identical twins Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff were European television personalities who fascinated us mainly because of their extreme and much DENIED overdose of plastic surgery. (Plastic surgery victims in Europe leave Hollywood victims in the dust!) We didn’t realize their lives were as loony as their looks. They gained TV fame by hosting several popular shows about science and science fiction. Both brothers claimed to have PHDs and they managed to get physics articles published in reputable journals that turned out to be highly questionable and “suffering from a serious lack of coherence.” These shenanigans and their appearance at a Cannes Film Festival brought them considerable notoriety. In December, the unvaccinated twins both died of Covid six days apart at the age of 72.

PARISIANS DON’T GIVE UP EASILY WHEN IT COMES TO HAVING FUN


Before Covid

After Covid
Parisians were NOT happy when the Prime Minister cancelled elaborate plans for a flamboyant New Year’s Eve 2022 at Champs Elysees due to the resurgence of Covid. Three popular DJs had been hired to provide music and fireworks were promised at the Arc de Triomphe every hour. Surrounding cafes and restaurants were all taking part in the festive evening. Bottom photo: Guess what! The disgruntled French citizens turned up anyway and mobbed the area – with and without masks…

CLOSE CALLS FOR KEVIN CONNOLLY

Kevin Connolly, 47, is no longer the Entourage playboy he was a few years ago. In fact, he’s had a few close calls recently. Last year in the midst of the MeToo frenzy, he was accused of sexually assaulting a costume designer named Gracie Cox at a wrap party in 2005. The assault was investigated and appeared to be true, and Kevin was very lucky because Cox never filed a police report or pursued it further. In June, Kevin and his girlfriend, Colombian actress Zulay Henao, 42, (age appropriate!) had a baby daughter named Kennedy. When she was just six weeks old, Kennedy contracted Covid after Kevin had it (he WAS vaccinated) and the parents were terrified. Fortunately, Kennedy recovered and the family turned up this weekend at a party at Holiday Road – its a Christmas village and light show in Calabasas.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT OF THE WEEK: ERIC CLAPTON

Eric Clapton can be admired for his music, but not his intelligence. He’s joined the anti-science crowd and become a loud critic of UK measures to slow the transmission of Covid. He’s protesting government restrictions and announced that he will not perform at venues or clubs that require audience members to be vaccinated. Despite defending freedom of choice for his fans, he DID get vaccinated himself.

TOM CRUISE: AVOIDING COVID IS A MISSION IMPOSSIBLE!

Tom Cruise must be apopleptic- since Tuesday he’s been locked up in isolation for two weeks in the UK, and now the entire 60 person crew of Mission: Impossible 7 is also in isolation. Last December Tom was seen angrily threatening to fire any crew members who broke his strict covid rules. SOMEBODY slipped up big time, and Tom spent a recent day filming a nightclub scene in close contact with 4 dancers who later tested positive. After that, 10 crew members tested positive and the entire set was shut down! Tom is a producer who stands to lose a lot of money because the film started shooting before covid hit and was halted immediately. The film was almost canceled, but they managed to start shooting again with rigid covid rules. Tom proudly says the movie has the most dangerous stunts EVER. Release date for the movie has been pushed back almost a year so far…

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS MRS MAISEL DOING WITH JOHN WATERS?

Rachel Brosnahan’s character Midge has made a lot of progress since The Marvelous Mrs Maisel started tentatively filming season 4 with STRICT Covid rules back in January. Note the clear bubble umbrella in the top photo with it’s own oxygen source on top!
(they took excellent care of their leading lady) Shooting has off and on continued in New York, and this week shows how much progress has been made. Midge is being filmed seated on a park bench (note the vintage coke) and she’s quite close to the two other actors – including John Waters far right! Can’t WAIT to see who Waters plays on the series!
