Part Two: Angie Harmon Defends Bristol Palin's Pregnancy, Says Republicans Are Much More Understanding | Osbournes Refuse to Do Reality TV, Kelly Has Battled Her Demons & Jack Disses Sex Tapes & Rosie O’Donnell | John Mayer Made Out With Perez Hilton | Wanna Hop Into The Pages Of Playboy?
On Monday, Pop Tarts reported Angie Harmon’s frustration at being considered "racist" simply because she doesn’t agree with what President Obama is doing and her admiration for Gov. Sarah Palin. In part two of our exclusive interview the actress/model defended Bristol Palin for having a child out of wedlock at such a tender age.
"I think one of the greatest things about the Republican Party is the understanding, we don’t point fingers and we have class. Lets keep in mind here, how old is she, 17? I don’t care what anybody says, this person is still a young person and okay she's got a big situation on her hands but for anyone to sit there and make fun of her or judge her is just cruel and wrong," Harmon said. "She is and in a position that any girl could be in: is this guy marrying me because he loves me and wants to be with me? To be in my life and our child's life? This is a big deal; we're getting married at 17! Nowadays, those don’t last. So if everyone could just get off her and let her live her life and do it in a way that she thinks is best, I'm all for it. I really am. She has my support 100 percent, she's a sweetheart. I've got three daughters and I'm going to stand up for them and support them in whatever they want to do."
Harmon also admitted that she’s probably (unknowingly) lost jobs over her political views, and is pretty disillusioned over why so many Americans are not open to freedom of opinion.
"It's not like anyone has come up to my face and been like ‘I'm not hiring you because you're a Republican!’ But the media is so liberal and I get it, but I’m just confused on where we lost the respect for our fellow Americans. Not all of us are supposed to believe the same things and think the same way," she added. "I think the difference between the parties is, with the Democrats you can sit down with them and have a 15 minute conversation and if you’re not believing everything they say and buying into what they’re selling you, it is like you’re some dumb hick who doesn't deserve to live here anymore. But with the Republicans, it is like okay I want to know what you know, you want to know what I know, okay great lets go have a beer after work, we're still friends. I’m just confused as to where we lost that in America because it is everyone’s God-given right to think the way they think and that's fine. That's why our ancestors came here to America, to believe what they want, pray how they want and follow a religion with whoever they want."
And in the Democratic-driven heat of Hollywood, Ms. Harmon has definitely taken a risk in voicing her views.
"Look we haven’t been shot yet! We're still alive! We've said the word "Republican" like four times and we're still alive! Can you believe it?" Harmon joked.
The world’s most dysfunctional family (aka the Osbournes ) debuted another television series on Tuesday night, but this time it’s under the guise of "variety" in FOX’s "Osbournes: Reloaded." Infact the star-studded, foul-mouthed family is definitely done with the reality world.
"Fremantle said to us ‘we want the Osbournes back on television’ and we said ‘as long as it’s not reality!’ So we did have a clean slate and it has taken a long time for this show (which involves magic tricks, pranks, dancing, singing and lots of live audience participation) to evolve," mother Sharon Osbourne said.
But don’t be deterred by the word variety …
"When people think variety they think what Rosie O’Donnell did on Thanksgiving which was not entertaining or funny, it was boring," Jack explained. "Ours is like risky, wacky, very humorous,"
And according to 24-year-old Kelly, the show this time around is a little more family-friendly.
"We're back but we're different, we're all grown up, we’ve all battled our demons and we're all happier and healthier than we've ever been," the reformed rehabber said. "At first it was a little hard to get used to working with the family again, but it’s been so much fun because in every episode I get to torture my brother."
It seems the controversial family has had no qualms about exposing their personal pitfalls publicly and Sharon is pretty proud that they didn’t have to go down the same route as the likes of Paris Hilton in order to make a living in showbiz.
"I have no regrets (about the first show), there is always good and bad in everything but the good outweighed the bad," Sharon said. "We were shown all over the world, it was fantastic -- and without getting arrested."
Speaking of Hilton…
"And we didn’t have to make a sex tape, who thought you would have had a career without those two things," Jack added.
"Then he (Perez) goes out and tells people I made out with him at a club and I don’t say anything. But you know what I damn right made out with him at a club," Mayer admitted during a recent stand-up performance. "Because I can’t stand the guy who acts like he just turned gay yesterday -- I can’t take it... I will f*** you just to shut you up."
Mayer of course goes into even more detail on their intimate connection, but it is no wonder Aniston gave him the boot. After all, he made out with the man who called her Maniston and said that all her ex beaus are better off without her. …
Looks like Hugh Hefner has found a new way of keeping an eye out for gorgeous girls to possibly grace the glossy pages of his men’s magazine.
The famous Playboy Club inside the Palms Hotel & Casino in Sin City now runs a monthly model search and the sexy winner gets a cash and pampering package, a photoshoot and the chance to be in the mag. So Pop Tarts caught up with Miss March who earned her titillating title on Sunday night to find out her secrets.
"All I had to do was turn up and pose for a photograph. There were about 100 other girls there too," 23-year-old Texas-born Kasey Unroe said. "I just wore a tube top and mini-skirt and danced the night away until they announced I had won."
