What is it about openly out, homosexual Keith Lewis, (most famous for casting Oscar nominee Mo’Nique in his Charm School reality TV series, to pick winners) and his pageant of esteemed judges working for Donald Trump, where they keep selecting beauty queens to represent their pageant brands, who seem to have no love or compassion for anyone different to themselves?
Miss Beverly Hills, Miss USA, Lauren Ashley has made headlines today, saying that she believes gay men and women should be put to death. She goes on record to say:
“The Bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Ashley told FOX News. “In Leviticus it says, ‘If man lies with mankind as he would lie with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death and their blood shall be upon them.’ The Bible is pretty black and white.”
Um, racism is pretty black and white too, honey–but it still exists in many churches today. Dontchathink?
Anyway… these things are obvious today: (more…)
The Keith Lewis and Carrie Prejean story of 2009 goes a little something like this.
He gave her a beauty crown on behalf of Donald Trump as Miss California, Miss USA. He also threw in a free set of fake breasts.
When she answered her view, that marriage should only be between a man and a woman, he took the beauty crown away from her, but let her keep the fake breasts.
The ‘battle’ between lawyers that raged between Lewis and Prejean, made Carrie Prejean the most famous dethroned beauty queen in American history after Vanessa Williams.
The story entertained us all year, making us question self-righteousness when it comes to a sense of equality and quality of life for all people who want their legal rights treated fairly within the law as equal citizens of the USA.
What a story. Lewis acting as the star maker of Prejean and Carrie’s pretty face, being what drew audiences in to actually be interested in Donald Trump’s Miss USA, Miss Universe pageant franchise again, in a fresh and new way that was suddenly relevant. Lewis proved he was a masterful puppeteer at providing the world with a vision of female beauty and what this actually means today.
A true American queen must reign justly over all people, not just a select few of her own self-righteous choosing. That’s what Lewis and Prejean taught us this year.
As in my view, they were really one and the same person in terms of their media coverage (two sides of a coin over one issue) showcased in one Pageant Show story, like the Gosselins (Jon and Kate), Lewis and Prejean share their ranking as the 37th most popular stars who rated in Hollywoof for 2009. Congratulations kids and thanks for the show. Interesting entertainment that got everyone talking.
Who also can forget Keith Lewis casting Monique in Flavor of Love: Charm School reality TV Show to help facilitate as an onscreen hostest with the mostest… what beauty meant for young American ladies needing some education. Lewis did this, long before Oprah, Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels cast the talented and beautiful Monique in an Oscar worthy performance in Precious.

You the people voted in 2009. Here’s the top ten Hollywood male stars that you selected to show the most promise to shine as celebrities you love and want to see more of for your entertainment heading into 2010. Two break out stars top this list. Democracy in action is alive and well in Hollywood. Thanks for voting.
10. Jermaine Jackson
9. Julian Lennon
8. Justin Gatson
7. Justin Timberlake
6. Brad Pitt
5. Salvador Dali
4. David Carradine
3. Michael Jackson
2. Taylor Lautner
1. Alex Meraz – Paul of Twilight’s New Moon wolf pack.
Summation: The top ten most popular men voted by you worldwide in Hollywood on Horiwood.Com reveal that Native American Indian actors making a comeback in Hollywood mainstream entertainment were the big story of the year.
Young men who would protect women at any cost against danger; who would also have a sense of brotherhood and values of team; had supernatural power to turn into someone else and…. who would take their shirts off to entertain audiences of teens and housewives moms worldwide … were also what Alex Meraz and Taylor Lautner did really well this year to make them the #1 and #2 most interesting male stars in Hollywood heading into 2010.
Stephenie Meyer and Kristen Stewart also share in their honors today, helping co-create and star with these young Hollywood superstars. Theirs is a story of great casting, but having the talent, determination and doing the graft to deliver the goods when the opportunity called. A great effort.
Three dead artists also made the list.
Brad Pitt‘s King of Hollywood romance and super dad title got him through, Jermaine Jackson‘s ability to inspire hope for his family and their fanbase in a time of global grief inspired us all; and the son of a Beatle‘s return to music along with a break out superstar from the UK in Robert Pattinson and his ability to portray a love story, rounds out the top ten men of Hollywood this year.
As three of these stars are no longer with us, Michael Jackson’s two sons rank next, but for their childhood’s sake and their privacy… these three men are the next top stars that you voted as your entertainers this year.
11. Kanye West: his controversial ego as well as his art brought him home this year. He is the only celebrity who the President called a “jack ass” off the record this year. He’s a consummate showman and a ‘bad boy of hip hop’ we love.
12. Keith Lewis for his controversial handling of the Carrie Prejean debacle with the Miss California Miss USA Pageant for Donald Trump, that entertained us all by revealing hypocrisy in most of us in 2009 from a beauty pageant podium. Lewis proved to be a clever producer of entertainment, asking the world the question… what is right, just and humane when it comes to ‘The Truth?’
13. Sir Richard Branson because he’s innovative, a fearless and creative billionaire who still wants to ride around with a naked supermodel on his back while kite skiing. Ridiculous!!! But Branson knows how to get his press and promote his air travel ventures with a sense of leisurely show biz magnitude. He’s still an entertaining actor today.

LOS ANGELES — The legal war between former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean and pageant organizers headed by Keith Lewis is over.
A joint statement released Tuesday says Prejean and the organizers of the pageant reached a confidential settlement on dueling lawsuits.
Prejean sued Miss California USA organizers in August for libel, slander and religious discrimination. She accused them of telling her to stop mentioning God even before her controversial remarks against gay marriage.
Prejean was fired in June after pageant officials accused her of missing events, an allegation that she denied. The pageant countersued Prejean last month.
The statement says Prejean and the pageant “wish each other the best in their future endeavors.”
The next Miss California USA will be crowned Nov. 22.

Never mess with bitchy queens! Keith Lewis of Charm School fame, gets his way. Donald Trump gives Miss California, USA the chop. Carrie Prejean loses her crown, as she was nice to Donald Trump basically, but a real cow to everyone else in the Miss USA Organization. Carrie Prejean has had more press as a beauty queen then almost anyone, bar Vanessa Williams of Ugly Betty, who also lost her crown back in the day, so… she’s on her way to a career in show biz!
HORIWOOD’S TOP 10 ARE:
Madonna’s camp had to switch into damage control PR today, with the news that her back up dancers are lacking in the manner’s department.
Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet Tour is taking a breather, and the Material Girl has booked 28 rooms at the Bryant park Hotel to house her Tour entourage. A front of house employee of the hotel is reported to have said: “They are horrible. We work with people in the fashion and entertainment industry all the time, a crowd that is notoriously difficult, but these guys are rude. They are presumptuous and cheap. Nearly every one of them have stiffed their bellman and servers, and what’s worse is they have tons of stuff.”
Madonna’s rep responded with: “Madonna is always known for her generosity and typically doles out tips when a hotel stay is over.”
And a hotel rep called the allegations “fabricated,” adding, “They are a polite group. We are happy to have them stay with us.”
That’s nice recession-appreciative talk from The Bryant Park Hotel. But perhaps Madonna’s back up dancers should all be put through Charm School, with Keith Lewis while Madges successful Tour is on hiatus. That wouldn’t hurt one bit!
