It's becoming more and more apparent how awesome Heidi Klum is. Seriously, we sort of want to hate her, if only because she can poop out babies and then model lingerie in a runway show like 2 days later. But we can't help but sort of love her, especially after she told Oprah that she fell in love with Seal when she noticed that he had a giant peen. Today she was on Ellen to promote season four of Project Runway. When Ellen asked her what we can expect from the new season, she replied, "The same shit." She rules! Also, talked about how Britney Spears showed up uninvited to her Halloween party, and then joked that Britney gave her some childcare pointers. Love. Her.
@warthog: "Unions have outlived their usefulness"?!!!! Are you crazy?!!!!Unions are more important now than ever, when corporations (and their very expensive lawyers) regularly fuck over workers. Oh, but you're right- look at the GREAT work environments for workers at union-busting companies such as Walmart and McDonald's! And regarding the Stagehands' Union, those are the top fucking stagehands in show business, people who really know what they're doing and have trained for years. Speaking as a stage actor, the stagehands are who keep you safe and make the show run smoothly, which is why they're paid so highly, because your life can literally be in their hands. Even if it falls under the term "unskilled labor", they're doing complicated and dangerous stuff that very few people know how to do in a very pressurized environment. And that '150,000' salary figure you're throwing around is ON BROADWAY, where they're using the best stagehands in the world and they're making profits of millions from the show. These are people at the peak of their careers. The producers league had a 22 million dollar fund set up from ticket sales JUST TO BUST THE UNION, and make the stagehands continue to work without a contract. They wanted the stagehands to take a 38% cut in benefits and insurance, but they saved up millions in an incredibly profitable period on Broadway just to fight them! THAT is why the stagehands are striking, and THAT is why unions exist. Because otherwise the corporations would own us even more than they already do.
