José Fernández's tragic passing has affected so many people.
The late sports star's longtime love reflected on their time together, writing:

What a cute kid!
Anne Heche arrived at LAX with her husband James Tupper and their adorably blonde hair, blue eyed son, Atlas.
Definitely one of the coolest names we've heard in a long time. That kid is set up for life with an instant conversation starter when he starts dating.
That, and he can say he's Anne Heche's son. Ha!

Poor thing! That's the absolute worst!
"Our summer was so boring except last week our house was robbed. We're gonna buy more stuff and put it in there."
The crooks apparently got away with the couples' computers, jewelry, and various electronics, and Heche and her man are currently helping authorities track these scumbags down!
Best of luck, bb! Thank goodness no one was hurt!

Ramin Setoodeh wrote possibly one of the most ignorant articles of all time for Newsweek Magazine, asserting that although straight men can play homosexual parts flawlessly, it doesn't work when gay people play heterosexual.
WTF kind of logic is that?!
Oh, we're sorry, are straight people just innately better performers than gays?? Or are straight people just so emotionally complex and superior that they can easily inhabit the role of a simple, caricature-like homosexual?
Here are some of infuriating gems published:
It's weird seeing Sean Hayes play straight. He comes off as wooden and insincere, like he's trying to hide something, which of course he is. Even the play's most hilarious scene, when Chuck tries to pick up a drunk woman at a bar, devolves into unintentional camp. Is it funny because of all the '60s-era one-liners, or because the woman is so drunk (and clueless) that she agrees to go home with a guy we all know is gay?
But the truth is, openly gay actors still have reason to be scared. While it's OK for straight actors to play gay (as Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger did in Brokeback Mountain), it's rare for someone to pull off the trick in reverse. De Rossi and Harris do that on TV, but they also inhabit broad caricatures, not realistic characters likes the ones in Up in the Air or even The Proposal.
As viewers, we are molded by a society obsessed with dissecting sexuality, starting with the locker-room torture in junior high school. Which is why it's a little hard to know what to make of the latest fabulous player to join Glee: Jonathan Groff, the openly gay Broadway star. In Spring Awakening, he showed us that he was a knockout singer and a heartthrob. But on TV, as the shifty glee captain from another school who steals Rachel's heart, there's something about his performance that feels off. In half his scenes, he scowls—is that a substitute for being straight? When he smiles or giggles, he seems more like your average theater queen, a better romantic match for Kurt than Rachel. It doesn't help that he tried to bed his girlfriend while singing (and writhing to) Madonna's Like a Virgin. He is so distracting, I'm starting to wonder if Groff's character on the show is supposed to be secretly gay.
Lesbian actresses might have it easier—since straight men think it's OK for them to kiss a girl and like it—but how many of them can you name? Cynthia Nixon was married to a man when she originated Miranda on Sex and the City. Kelly McGillis was straight when she steamed up Top Gun's sheets, and Anne Heche went back to dating men (including her Men in Trees costar). If an actor of the stature of George Clooney came out of the closet tomorrow, would we still accept him as a heterosexual leading man? It's hard to say. Or maybe not. Doesn't it mean something that no openly gay actor like that exists?
Or maybe, and call us a little crazy here, MAYBE it's because ignorant articles such as this are still being published, that perpetuate this kind of bigotry and ignorance that keep closeted gay leading men in the closet!
Shame on you, Newsweek!
HA! How mortifying!
Even though his mother, Nancy Davis, is afflicted with the disease and runs the fundraiser, Jason Davis will not be attending the Race to Erase MS gala tomorrow night - because his ass has been shipped off to Utah's Cirque Lodge for some very much need REHAB!
Apparently, his grandmother Barbara Davis was furious that the trainwreck made a fool of himself when he showed up uninvited to a Golden Globes after-party in January, so she and Nancy made sure he'd be out of the picture for the formal event!
The douche was overheard saying:
"Given her guest list of Anne Heche, Tom Arnold and other dysfunctional B-listers, I would've fit right in."
We think they should probably send Brandon along for the ride. Does the Cirque Lodge provide treatment for being a dumbass?

Stars including Weeds Mary Louise Parker, Anne Heche who we're guessing had a bad hair day because there's no other excuse to be wearing that hat with that dress, Michael Urie from
the soon to be canned Ugly Betty and an Olsen showed up.
It was Ashley, we're not sure where the other one was.
The collection, cheesecake and all, will launch on December 4th. Can't wait to see his collection! And maybe a taste of it too!

Heche's father, an evangelical Christian who not only sexually abused Anne as a kid but was also a closeted gay man, died of AIDS in 1983. Shortly after her mother joined Focus on the Family a group that holds the belief one can "overcome" homosexuality.
That is really effed up. No wonder Celestia reared her ugly head a few years ago!
Anne Heche explains her decision to keep her family apart:
"My mother's had a very tragic life. Three of her five children are dead, and her husband is dead. That she is attempting to change gay people into straight people is, in my opinion, a way to keep the pain of the truth out. People wonder why I am so forthcoming with the truths that have happened in my life, and it's because the lies that I have been surrounded with and the denial that I was raised in, for better or worse, bore a child of truth and love. My mother preaches to this day the opposite of that core of my life. It is no mistake that she still stands up against love. And one wonders why I'm not rushing to have her meet my children."
While we think family should always come first sometimes, family issues can be very complicated.
It sounds like Anne is doing what she believes is best for her kiddies and that's what's important.
Remember she was gay once herself!

After their recent displays of maturity, divorced couple Anne Heche and Coley Laffoon have been assigned a court-ordered "parenting plan coordinator" to help get their shiz together for the sake of their son, Homer.
The coordinator — who's being paid a whopping 375 bucks an hour — is in charge of coaching the exes on effective co-parenting and making parenting decisions together as well as resolving disputes between them relating to Homer.
Both Anne and Coley have agreed to the deal which remains in effect until May 1, 2011.
Well, good LUCK with these two!
That coordinator will be earning every cent of their big paycheck.
