Backhanded Compliments, Volume Six

Let's hope Bobby doesn't f*ck it all up: You might have seen the recently-released photos of Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, snorting drugs. Well, Whitney saw them, and momma is pissed. According to The National Enquirer, Whitney has demanded Bobbi Kristina check into rehab. The Enquirer reports that upon hearing about the photos, Whitney canceled Bobbi's birthday trip to Atlantis, took back the Lexus she bought her, and insisted she get treatment. If, like me, you remember vividly Whitney's clearly cracked out appearances on her reality show, the smackdown by Whit comes as a big, pleasant surprise. Crack is whack! [Perez]

Later, Hugh Hefner lectured on monogamy: Howard Stern appears on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and here's what SmarmMaster Flash had to say about casual sex: "After my divorce, I realized, 'Oh, wow, I can go have sex.' And I was running around, picking up women. Then all of a sudden, it dawned on me that I really didn't need that much sex. I just wanted somebody with me every minute. I was using women as a surrogate mother. When I tapped into that, it suddenly became very childish behavior. And really, was it so great fucking every night? They're using me for my fame, I'm using them for their beauty, and the whole fucking thing seemed empty." Hmm. Actually, I'm not that surprised that Howard can be intelligent and introspective. I am, however, shocked as shit that there are so many women who were willing to sleep with him. [HuffPost]

Fine, Ryan Murphy. FINE: I've said it before and I'll say it again: Watching "Glee" makes me want to drink bleach. Don't even get me started on Glee + Gwyneth. But last night's kiss between characters Kurt and Blaine was awesome. It was a full-on kiss filmed the way straight kisses are -- up close and wet, people. No behind-the-head shot, no smashed faces atop hidden mouths. This was a beautifully equal gay kiss. I love Ryan Murphy -- and Chris Colfer -- for their treatment of gay and lesbian themes. But look, RyRy, it's going to take me a while to recover from watching Matthew Morrison and Gwyneth Paltrow murder -- and I mean murder --  Prince's "Kiss," so let's just call it even for now.

For those of you who missed last night's show, you can watch the kiss above.
