Another celebrity has been outed, but it’s not exactly what you might be thinking.

Flamboyant designer Bobby Trendy, frequently seen on the now-defunct E! Network reality show The Anna Nicole Show, has been officially outed.

As being completely straight.

Trendy, the California-born Vietnamese-American with a penchant for dressing in drag, was caught on Friday kissing his girlfriend in the women’s bathroom at a McCoy’s building supply store in San Antonio, Texas. McCoy’s sells lumber, hammers, nails, axes, but nothing decorative that would appeal to the flamboyant Trendy (whose birth name is Nok Yu Trinh).

“I was quite embarrassed by what I saw,” said Rupert Polson, manager of the McCoy’s store in question. “Mr. Trendy had his hands all over the girl, and for a man who’s supposedly gay, he seemed very much to be enjoying himself.”

The girlfriend’s name has not been disclosed, but her first name is thought to be Amanda.

Veronica Judson, Trendy’s spokesperson, confirmed to Ponderings from Pluto that Trendy indeed is 100% heterosexual. “The whole gay flamboyance is just an act, one that sells an image that profits him hundreds of thousands of dollars annually,” Judson told PFP. “Bobby has grown very tired of having to hide his heterosexuality. He loves women and is sick of being in the closet.”

Judson added that Trendy likes to keep a low profile by hanging out at McCoy’s stores–ostensibly the last place in the world anyone would look to find a stereotypically-gay man.

So far, Howard K. Stern, the attorney and confidant of the late Anna Nicole Smith, has declined comment.


Filmmaker Martin Scorsese to direct controversial movie about Islamic prophet Muhammad

Famed film director Martin Scorsese, who, at the 2007 Academy Awards finally won his first Oscar for the movie The Departed, announced plans to produce and direct a movie on the life of famed Muslim prophet Muhammad.

The movie, tentiatively titled Muhammad’s Mirage, is set to be released in 2010. The movie is based on the controversial Shaul al-Israeli novel of the same name, in which al-Israeli writes that Muhammad was an immoral pedophile who doubted his faith in Allah late in his own life. The book also states that Muhammad was the first documented “suicide bomber” in Islamic history, having tied himself to a large rock, which was then catapaulted into a crowd of Orthodox Jewish rabbis.

No doubt, the film will be controversial, but it’s hardly anything new for Scorsese. The director made headlines in the eighties when he directed the controversial 1988 film The Last Temptation of Christ, a movie where Jesus sinned and died for his own sins.

Due to the death threats he’ll undoubtedly receive, Scorsese says he might take the infamous Alan Smithee director’s credit for Muhammad’s Mirage. “I encourage Muslims to watch the movie with an open mind and then decide for themselves what they really believe,” Scorsese said from an undisclosed location.

Dr. James Dobson endorses himself for president

Dr. James Dobson, who’s running for president of the United States on the Conservative Party ticket, has picked up an influential endorsement.


Dr. Dobson, former president of Focus on the Family, suggested in a recent interview with Ponderings from Pluto that by endorsing himself he might be able to get many evangelical Christian votes. Including from those who are regular listeners to Focus on the Family’s daily and weekend broadcasts.

“Again, I’m running as a private citizen, and not as someone affiliated with a non-profit organization,” the doctor emphasized.

Dobson is supposed to announce by June who his running mate will be. Names mentioned include Mike Huckabee, Chuck Swindoll and Joel Osteen. Dobson said in an earlier interview that he’s running because he feels that Republican nominee-to-be John McCain offers no acceptable alternative to Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
