Orange Is The New Black Star Breaks Down On Air Over Her Parents' Sudden Deportation When She Was Only 14!

Wow, this is so sad to hear.

Orange is the New Black's Diane Guerrero went on CNN recently to talk about a very emotional moment in her life: the day her parents were suddenly deported.

Diane was just 14-years-old at the time, when her mother and father were taken away by immigration officers.

What's most upsetting is that there was no governmental outreach, either by an official or an agency, to look after Diane — who as aforementioned was just a teenager at the time.

She had to find out they were deported from her neighbors. WTF?!

At the end of Diane's harrowing tale, she advocated an easier approach to documenting families, so that stories like this won't happen ever again.

Ch-ch-check out her entire interview (above)!!!

President Bill Clinton Opens Up About Being A Grandfather!

Hillary, Bill, & Charlotte Clinton

We bet he makes the most amazing grandpa!

President Bill Clinton spent Veteran's Day on Tuesday at Ellen, speaking with the talk show host about his new role as grandfather.

As you may know, his daughter Chelsea gave birth to a baby girl named Charlotte back in September, and he spoke with Ellen DeGeneres all about having another kid in his life, saying:

"Hillary and I only have one child and she's quite wonderful, but it's been a long time since she's been that age. So the biggest hoot for me, my granddaughter turned six weeks on Friday, is watching them wake up to the world."

It's a great feeling, it's part of the rhythm of life. It helps you come to terms in a really positive way, with your own mortality. It's just a joyful experience. I love it. I'm so happy.

Awwwww.

We're so glad to hear that the former Prez is up for the challenge of being a granddad, and just from hearing him speak, we can tell he's going to do a great job.

Rose McGowan Apologizes For Her Comments About 'Misogynistic' Gay Men (Well, Sort Of)

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikRose McGowan

Uh oh! It looks like Rose McGowan is doing some MAJOR backpedaling in regards to the insulting comments she recently made about gay men!

In a recent interview with the writer (and gay!) Bret Easton Ellis, Rose made some very gross generalizations about gay men which understandably pissed off a lot of people. Basically, Rose called gay men 'misognyists' along with a bunch of other offensive characterizations.
