She came to New York in 1954, with stars in her eyes and dreams of becoming a ballet dancer. She didn't find fame in ballet, but she did make it to Broadway -- twice.
Georgina Spelvin's memoir about her strange journey from the bright lights of Broadway to the dark world of porn.
For about 15 years, Texas native Georgina Spelvin earned a modest living as a chorus girl, primarily in touring companies and summer stock. When stardom finally came, at age 36, it wasn't on the stage of her dreams.
Porn auteur Gerard Damiano conceived The Devil in Miss Jones in the aftermath of the unexpected success of his legendary film Deep Throat. With Miss Jones, he hoped to bridge the gap between porn and art films. The pron film told a dark tale of a frustrated, middle age virgin (Spelvin), who commits suicide on camera. Condemned for committing a mortal sin, she bargains for a temporary return to Earth so she can experience all of her sexual fantasies. The film's downbeat ending found Miss Jones back in Hell, on the verge of achieving a climax that would never "come." This was to be her eternity.More »
|The incomparable Big Ang|
She's dated mobsters and loves drag queens; she's had more than a few facelifts and breast enlargements, and admits to them all. Her wardrobe is colorful, her voice is deep, and it would be easy to laugh at Big Ang, but there's something undeniably lovable and charming about Angela Raiola, aka Big Ang, the breakout star of VH1's Mob Wives.
Ang doesn't pull any punches. Big, brassy and foul mouthed, the hard drinking Ang tells it like it is.
"I don't care what people think of me," she says.
Clifford Roles Cast of 50 Shades! The Musical
"It's like a twisted sort of West Side Story," says Albert Samuels about the plotline of 50 Shades! The Musical, which he directed and helped to produce and write, based on the porn-tinged best seller 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James. "Girl meets boy, but girl is a 21-year-old virgin who works at a hardware store, and boy is a reclusive Adonis-like billionaire who's really into bondage. Other than that, there's something for the whole family."
Samuels says Marshall Cordell, a producer on this show and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where Samuels' musical parody group, Baby Wants Candy, performs every year, called Samuels saying he'd heard that the book's sales had sparked a run on rope at hardware stores as people began exploring their bondage-loving side. The producer asked Samuels to do a musical version of the book. Who could turn that down?
The show played at the Fringe Festival last summer, then went on to Chicago and New York and, now, San Francisco.More »
As some of you may know, Nicholas Cage is a California native: He hails from Long Beach, the land of bros and boards. And if you've tracked Cage's career since, you're well aware of the traveling he's done, from the secret stacks at the Library of Congress to a fiery, apocalyptic Hell/green screen of death. Now he just wants to be where the people are.

Enter one of the greatest thing we've ever seen on Buzzfeed: Nicholas Cage's head, immortalized in various cartoon portraits of well-known Disney princesses. Pretty much every princess gets a Nicholas Cage makeover, from a ruffly-dressed Pocahontas to a stern, pensive Mulan. It's the most epic Internet phenomenon since this.
Thus is the absurdity of Disney princesses' body proportions measured against the greater absurdity that is Nicholas Cage.
Just when you thought your college degree was a waste, this new study reveals that sugar daddies are more inclined to spend money on sugar babies with a collegiate education than those who have nothing more than a high school diploma.
In this non-scientific yet very depressing study, 83 percent of fresh-faced grads feel forced to choose an alternative path other than their chosen career after 49 days of unsuccessful job hunting.
And San Francisco (once the nation's Sugar Daddy capital) is not excluded. According to Seekingarrangement.com, a site dedicated to matching sugar daddies with sugar babies, the City by the Bay is the sixth worst place for hopeful college grads.
She doesn't make pot-leaf doilies or anything (yet), but Cheryl Shuman, the self-proclaimed "Martha Stewart of Marijuana," is definitely bringing a more suburban mom image to our favorite herb. Shuman was recently on The Ricki Lake Show (which is still on?) talking about her struggles with ovarian cancer and her quest to make weed more adorable.More »
If you missed Jodie Foster's rambly, kinda coming out speech at the Golden Globes the other night, we suggest you skip it and just watch The Onion parody instead, which reports that Foster's speech is inspiring LGBT youth to come out to their parents in vague, confusing riddles, such as, "I just want to let you know that I'm here and I love who I love, and I'm not who you never thought I wasn't going to be."
