You don't wanna f*ck with the wrong guys in the gay porn business!

At least that's what we picked up from watching the first trailer for James Franco's upcoming film King Cobra!

The biopic follows the story of aspiring porn star Brent Corrigan (Garrett Clayton) — who starts a war between a powerhouse producer (Christian Slater) and two wannabe producers (Franco and Pretty Little Liars actor Keegan Allen), who have no problem getting their hands a little dirty!

Months after Michael Strahan very publicly (and dramatically) departed Live, Kelly Ripa teased her fans by saying a "big announcement" was coming — which we took to mean she would finally be revealing her new co-host.

While the announcement did in fact have to do with who would be sitting in Strahan's empty seat, it still wasn't exactly the news we were anticipating.

On Wednesday's show, the 45-year-old revealed that FANS would have a chance to be her cohost for the day through the new contest Live With Kelly & You! Oh…

Since Strahan's departure for GMA, Ripa has been hosting Live alongside a rotation of guest stars like Christian Slater, Rob Lowe, Anderson Cooper, and Andy Cohen — but who needs those celebs when you have Live superfan Pam from Indiana!?

(JK, Pam, we're sure you're very charismatic…)

What an opportunity! For all those who think Ripa's job is easy, now you finally have a chance to prove it!

Fans have until September 20 to submit on the Live website — will YOU try your luck at being the next Live cohost?

Family Source Describes Christian Slater's Father's $20 Million 'Baseless' Lawsuit As A 'Long & Difficult Situation'

| Filed under: Legal MattersChristian SlaterMental HealthFamily

Christian Slater

We knew there had to be more to the story.

Yesterday we told you that Christian Slater was being sued for $20 million by his father Michael Hawkins — who claimed the Mr. Robot star "ruined" his career by saying in an interview last year that Hawkins was "suffering from manic-depressive schizophrenia."

Slater's father (real name Thomas Knight Slater) appeared on the soap opera Ryan's Hope in the '70s and his last credited project on IMDB was the 1988 action film Midnight Run.

A source close to the family says Hawkins has a history of personal struggle:

"His father has had his troubles. Christian has done what he can for him financially by supporting him for many years, but eventually had to distance himself because of his erratic behavior."

Adding:

"It's been a long and difficult situation. The lawsuit is baseless."

Ugh. This is so sad.

We hope this all gets sorted out soon…

Christian Slater Is Being Sued For $20 Million… By His Own Father!

| Filed under: Legal MattersChristian SlaterMental HealthFamily

Oh snap.

As we reported, Christian Slater revealed to Interview mag last summer that his father Thomas Knight Slater (stage name Michael Hawkins) greatly suffers from manic-depressive schizophrenia, a condition which affected their relationship and his father's career as an actor. However, the 46-year-old said that the two had been "able to begin to build a better bridge" after Hawkins wanted to reconnect.

Well now things seem to have taken a turn as poppa Slater is suing his famous son for at least $20 million.

According to docs obtained by People, Hawkins claims Slater and his ex-wife Mary Jo Slater "ruined" his acting career by labeling him as mentally ill.

The accusations include slander, libel, defamation of character, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, invasion of privacy, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress. Hawkins demands a jury trial.

Dang, anything else?!

The 80-year-old claims that he doesn't have a mental illness and that his son doesn't have "a medical credential or the ability to diagnose manic-depressive schizophrenia."
