Bobby Flay's Star Ceremony On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame Gets Overshadowed By A 'Cheater' Banner Flying Overhead!

Filed under: TV NewsAwardzFood

no title

Yikes, what an unfortunate sight on Bobby Flay's big day!

The celebrity chef is the first among his peers to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday afternoon, but that achievement was kind of overlooked when a shocking banner flew overhead!

Well, the 50-year-old probably didn't notice it because he was too busy living in the moment, but everyone else sure did!

During the event, a transparent flyer with the word "Cheater" on it was flown around while Bobby was making his acceptance speech.

Bobby has been accused of cheating on his soon-to-be divorced wife Stephanie March, but it's unknown who's responsible for the banner.

Nonetheless, the chef wasn't too bothered by it. The Throwdown with Bobby Flay host's mom Dorothy, 19-year-old daughter Sophie, ex-wife Kate Connelly, Michael Symon, and Food Network president Brooke Johnson were all in attendance to support the star and give speeches.

Bobby said during the ceremony:

"I just want to make sure that everybody understands – because I know there's been a little confusion – I am not getting this star for my cameos in Entourage. I know there's a little debate about that, but honestly to be the first chef to get a star is really truly an amazing milestone I need to dedicate this truly honorable moment to the most important person in my life, my daughter Sophie. I look forward to watching you build your own star – the star of life, passion and happiness because really what more can we ask for? Love, Dad."

How sweet!

Guess that message in the sky didn't put a damper on the event after all!

Mike Huckabee Is Clearly NOT A Caitlyn Jenner Supporter! Watch Him Joke About The Transgender Community HERE!

Sometimes it seems like Mike Huckabee just says things to stir up controversy, not because he actually believes them.

This is not one of those times.

A video has just been discovered of the sometimes FoxNews pundit and former Presidential candidate giving a speech at February's National Religious Broadcasters Convention.

The speech (above) is over three months before Caitlyn Jenner's big reveal, so it's not directed at the Olympian.

But it is targeting the transgender community in general.

During the speech, Huckabee jokes:

Stephen Colbert Gives A Hilarious Graduation Speech At Wake Forest University And Even Jokes About The Great Dress Debate!

Filed under: Stephen ColbertFunnySchool

no title

Leave it to Stephen Colbert to bring some lighthearted comedy and all the laughter in a somewhat dark speech.

LOLz!

But all jokes aside, the comedian took the honor of giving the Wake Forest University commencement speech on Monday in North Carolina.

The former Colbert Report host had some pretty wise words to pass onto the class of 2015!

[ Video: Maya Rudolph Impersonates Beyonce During Commencement Speech ]

He said at one point in his speech:

"I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself; but now part of my life is over. It's time to say goodbye to the person we've become … and to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we're going to be. For me, I'll have to figure out how to do an hour-long show every night. And you at some point will have to sleep. I am told the Adderall wears off eventually…

I hope you find the courage to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong, and then please, expect as much of the world around you. Try to make the world good according to your standards."

Beautiful.

Listen to his funny address (below)!

Ben Affleck Gives Testimony Before Congress, Calls Out His 'Co-Star' Senator Over His Multiple Batman Movie Cameos!

Filed under: Ben AffleckFilm FlickersPolitikHeath LedgerCharityFunny

no title

Ben Affleck is just oozing pure awesome!

The political-minded crusader for good went to Capitol Hill to testify before the Senate State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Subcommittee.

Flanked by fellow world-saving hero Bill Gates, Ben began his passionate speech about getting more U.S. foreign assistance to further economic development programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He loves the Congo and has been doing charity work there ever since his first visit seven years ago.

Before getting too far into his speech, he had to stop and call out his fellow Batman co-star… Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)!

Senator Leahy actually has a bit of a Batman history!

He was a background actor in 1997's Batman & Robin, had his face grabbed and threatened with a knife by Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight and even had a speaking role in The Dark Knight Rises on the Wayne Enterprises board!

Check out the video (below) to see Ben Affleck being his wonderful, charismatic self, but also feel free to listen to his entire speech. He's a smart man with a lot of good things to say.

So inspiring!!!

It's been about four months since Leelah Alcorn's tragic death, so it makes us so happy to see her memory being remembered in such an uplifting way.

A 13-year-old named Tom Sosnik decided to come out as a trans man to his classmates via an emotional speech.

He urged his peers to educate themselves about the trans community and let them know it was safe to ask him any questions they had about his transition.

We never realized Russell Brand was such a big softie!

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star was scheduled to give the keynote address at this year's SXSW festival, where Brand: A Second Coming — filmmaker Ondi Timoner's documentary about him — will premiere.

Unfortunately for those looking forward to that speech, Russell has officially cancelled.

Why? Because the movie kind of depressed him. He explained:
