“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson has been suspended from the popular A&E show following his shocking remarks on homosexuality in the latest issue of GQ magazine.
Recap: The 67-year-old reality star equated same-sex relationships with bestiality. “It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus, that’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
He continued, “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
A&E chose to suspend the star after the remarks were revealed. “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series ‘Duck Dynasty,’” A&E Networks said in a statement. “His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”
Are you surprised the reality star was suspended? Do you think it was warranted?
‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch Phil Robertson is in some serious hot water today, after he took aim at homosexuality in a new shocking interview with GQ.
The 67-year-old reality star equated homosexuality with bestiality in the new issue. “It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus, that’s just me,” the reality star said. “I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there,” he explained when asked what exactly he considered sinful, “bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”
It didn’t take long for the GLAAD to release their own statements. “Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe,” GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz responded in a statement.
“He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans — and Americans — who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples. Phil’s decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to reexamine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families.”
If you’re like me, you only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, and the half-time show. I couldn’t care less who’s playing – or who won. In fact I didn’t even know the 49′s were playing the Ravens until the Ravens actually won. It just bores me to tears. Now the commercials, on the other hand, are the highlight of the night for me. After looking around online, I’ve found the commercials that people loved the most. Here are the top favorites! Which one did you like the best?
My favorite has to be the one above, from Taco Bell. LOVED it. Which one is your fave? Let’s talk below!

I am getting so disgusted with the state of TV these days. I was flipping through the channels the other day, and found a show about a company that makes fish tanks. FISH TANKS!? What the hell is interesting about that!? There is seriously no rock left unturned anymore, no story untold. There will soon be a show about my life…stay tuned.
The network is set to unveil Obese & Expecting, about four moms-to-be who are morbidly overweight.
The project will chronicle their health crises, weight gain and relationship struggles as they strive to deliver healthy babies.
According to the upcoming announcement, “These women are challenging the perception — and the odds — of obese pregnancies, as they become moms, no matter their size or complications.”
The network will launch Obese & Expecting as a one-hour special and potential backdoor series pilot next month. Many TLC shows (such as the hit Extreme Couponing) first launch as stand-alone specials, then the network gauges audience reaction and decides whether to order a full season. We wouldn’t be surprised if this concept, at the very least, received a fair amount of pre-launch publicity (the show’s original working title, by the way, was the MTV-inspired My Supersize Pregnancy, though we would have gone with, say, 600 & Pregnant).
