I was sitting next to him and he pointed to the cameraman and was like, 'Hey you, why don't you point that camera at me and put it on the screen so I can see how good I look?' I've never heard a guy say that. That was the first thing I heard him say. I thought, 'Who is that dude?'" Henson was preparing to let the world know about his comprehensive beauty rituals.

One of those team members, Colin Finnerty, may also hold a previous assault record as a gay basher according to the NYT. "[Finnerty] and two of his teammates from high school lacrosse were arrested on Nov. 5 in Washington. At 2:30 a.m. that day, Jeffrey O. Bloxgom told the police that the men had 'punched him in the face and body, because he told them to stop calling him gay and other derogatory names,' according to records at the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Bloxgom also said that the three men 'without provocation had attacked him, busting his lip and bruising his chin.'

  1. Regardless of how caught up Henson seems to be with his own looks, I sort of give him props for dating Church; she's not exactly the Posh Spice of the pop world. She's more grit and soul than Vic, not to mention a tiny bit thicker in the thighs too...

  2. For the love of God, please don't show Henson's hair again. I still have night tremors about the last posted photo.

  4. Dear ML, are you saying that because Church is less than perfect that she is lucky to be with Mr. Gavin, or anyone else of such "beauty?" Come on now. I'll bet living with such "perfection" is pure hell and totally boring. (Just ask my partner ;) ). Why do we spend so much time on this man. Plenty of pretty fish in the sea.

  5. Not at all; quite the opposite actually. I commend him for dating someone less glossy (like Beck) and with more substance (or so it seems.) It would be easy to assume, seeing he's so caught up in his own looks that he'd date a woman more superficial than Charlotte, that's all.

  6. Isn't it interesting that we always hear stories about "jocks" and "frat boys" involved in rapes or gay-bashings but they are still held up as sexual/cultural icons. Pretty bodies filled with evil souls?

    Maybe the lacrosse players are innocent but the evidence, the woman's broken finger nails, cell phone, and purse left in the players' bathroom, and the phone call by the other woman to 911 describing being verbally assaulted with racial epithets in a separate incident that night by the players doesn't add up to innocence.

  7. Hesnen seems to be a real himbo; I'm surprised Pink didn't make any crass remarks directly to his face. She's never been one to hide her opinions.

    As for Charlotte, while she seems like a drunk Welsh Cathoic girl I still think she is far more talented than others her age here in America (e.g. Lohan and Duff)

    And I for one LOVE the fact that she is a bit thicker in the thighs. This whole anorexic craze in Hollywood needs to stop!

  8. I work with a news organization near Chicago, and the events in Crystal Lake have been reported on a lot by the local media. I'm glad that the resolution was positive.

    Also, too bad about the lacrosse guy. He's kinda cute. Too bad he's a violent bigot.

  9. Unlike the Roman Catholic Church, or more similar to Greek Orthodoxy, the Worldwide Anglican Communion mirrors the British Commonwealth model .

    Every Anglican Church jurisdiction, national in scope, has only a honorific and not juridical relationship with the Church of England or the Archbishop of Canterbury (Cantuaris) or the second, the Archbishop of York (Ebor).

    The politics are simple. The largest autonomous Anglican Churches are in subsaharan Africa where Britain once ruled.
    These Churches were both Evangelical in churchmanship, as opposed to Tractarian, and were more prone to literalism than contextualism.

    If the Church were willing initially and later to "forgive" human frailty, it was often with polygamy and not homosexual love.

    This is another case of the "tyranny of the majority" and both the American and Canadian churches are concerned about federal neo-conservative governments in power using this agenda for their own ends.
