Susan Sarandon And Debra Messing Are In A Serious Twitter Beef

2nd Annual "Beyond Hunger: A Place At the Table" Event in LA

It’s the political battle of the redheads, Y’ALL!

Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing are in a straight up “who’s the most liberal” Twitter war, and it got UGLY. The whole thing began when Sarandon did an interview on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show, All In. Here’s the exchange that got the controversy-ball rolling:

SARANDON: I think Bernie would probably encourage people to [support Hillary if he loses] because he doesn’t have any ego in this thing. But I think a lot of people are, ‘sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Hillary].’

HAYES: How about you personally?

SARANDON: I don’t know. I’m going to see what happens.

HAYES: Really?

SARANDON: Really. It’s dangerous to think we can continue the way we are with the militarized police force, with the death penalty and the low minimum wage and threats to women’s rights and think you can’t do something huge to turn that around. The country is not in good shape if you’re in the middle class. It’s disappearing.

A lot of people thought Sarandon was coming close to saying Democrats, liberals and progressives should stay home from the polls if Hillary Clinton gets the nomination. Sarandon was widely criticized for her “blind privilege,” by the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis and even more aggressively, Debra Messing:

Oof. After that, a frenzy of tweets, that you can see on Susan’s Twitter feed here and Debra’s feed here.

The fact of the matter is that Susan is not advocating voting for anyone other than Bernie Sanders, even if Clinton gets the nomination. And it’s a tough place to be considering the repubs looking for nominations are the truly cringe-worthy Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.

What do YOU Think about this feud?!

Connie Britton and Debra Messing At LAX

I love when actresses are buddies!

Here are Connie Britton and Debra Messing arriving at LAX today!  Britton has her son Eyob (“Yobi“) with her, and boy is that little kid cute.  I’m sure the two had a lot to talk about after all the award shows both attended, for Nashville and Smash, respectively.  It’s awesome to be able to see strong, talented women go far in Hollywood…and be friendly while doing it!

Debra Messing Files For Divorce From Husband

Debra Messing has filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, Daniel Zelman. That’s practically a lifetime in Hollywood years!

The two have come a long way, including raising their 8-year-old 8-year-old son together.   Messing is citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for divorce, and asking for spousal and child support, although that could just be a formality, TMZ says.

Last year, Messing and Zelman announced their separation, though they stayed living together.  According to sources, the two seem to be reasonably friendly to one another.

The two have been married since September 3, 2000. This is very sad news!

Debra Messing and her husband SPLIT after 10 years!

After being married for a decade, Debra Messing, 43, and her husband Daniel Zelman have decided to split.

“Debra Messing and Daniel Zelman privately separated earlier this year after a 10 year marriage,” Messing’s rep tells Us. Messing and actor/TV producer Zelman, 44, met years ago as students at New York University, married in 2000, and share a 7-year-old son, Roman.

Explains the rep of the separation: “The decision was mutual, and they remain supportive of one another and committed to raising their son as a family.”

Messing (who next stars in buzzed-about NBC series Smash, out in February), Zelman and their little boy recently relocated to NYC — and remain living under one roof, according to a source close to the pair.

“They have been separated the better part of the year but continue to live together in New York for Roman,” explains the source. “It’s very amicable.”

The couple was last photographed together at a Bette Midler’s annual Halloween party. (Pic below).

Last month, Messing told LilSugar about her holiday plans in the Big Apple. “We just moved back to New York but have always had family here,” the Emmy winner said. “We love to go skating at Wolman rink, and go see plays — musicals specifically. Waiting for the snow to come. Looking forward to putting on the snowsuit and stomping through Central Park.”

So sad! I hate hearing about divorces, especially when children are involved.
