Porn star to appear on Kimmel

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel is bringing adult film star Stormy Daniels on his show next Tuesday on the night of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech.

Daniels is in the news following reports that she had an affair with the future president in 2006. The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s lawyer arranged a payment to Daniels to prevent her from talking about the alleged encounter before the 2016 presidential election.

Kimmel announced the booking via Twitter. He wrote that he had many questions.

Actors counter State of Union

Mark Ruffalo, Lee Daniels, Michael Moore and Whoopi Goldberg are among celebrities who plan to attend an evening of speeches and music at The People’s State of the Union, billed as a “public alternative” to President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address.

The event is planned for Monday, the day before Trump’s speech, at the Town Hall in Manhattan, founded as a meeting spot for suffragists over 90 years ago.

Among those slated to perform are Andra Day and Common.

Ruffalo, a vocal progressive, said the evening will be an “inspirational event where activists and influencers join together to articulate a positive vision for our future, and how we’re going to win our country back.”

The event will be livestreamed at peoplessotu.org.

Vanity Fair apologizes for cover

Social media sleuths had a field day Friday at the expense of Vanity Fair over what appeared to be digital manipulation of the magazine’s cover spread on Hollywood that lent what looked to some like a third leg for Reese Witherspoon and an extra hand for Oprah Winfrey.

The magazine responded on Twitter with an apology for an “error” in regard to Winfrey. As for Witherspoon, Vanity Fair said the third leg was actually the lining of her dress.

Winfrey and Witherspoon had some fun over the Twitter flurry, with Witherspoon tweeting at Winfrey: “Well...I guess everybody knows now...I have 3 legs. I hope you can still accept me for who I am. ??( and I will never apologize for snuggling @Oprah .. if you get the opportunity, I highly recommend it;)” To which Winfrey responded: “I accept your 3d leg. As I know you accept my 3d hand??????????????”
