Magic Johnson opened up to us about his son Earvin Johnson III coming out, and also ... about athletes coming out in the future. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban joined us with his take on Magic's feelings about gays in pro sports.

And, Kim Kardashian gets excused from the first day of her divorce trial -- and we're thinking she just told Kris Humphries ... IN YOUR FACE! We'll explain.

Plus, Tom Cruise offering refunds??? Well, the movie studio behind a Cruise blockbuster just gave a disappointed customer his money back. So, is this the wave of the future for moviegoers?

You know, it's too bad I couldn't get this site to shame a gas station attendant in Quebec. TMZ loves to post about racism, too bad the little shyte wasn't a celeb. My poor cousin, nothing like being refused service because he doesn't speak French then having the little bastage turn around and get on the P.A. System and call him an ENGLISH C**KSUCKER.

Harvey, you making a mountain out of a molehill is what breeds intolerance. You are shoving the gay son of a famous athlete down our throats all in the name of tolerating their life style. I don't care what people do in their personal life and neither should anyone else but when you have to have it harped on over and over. Good lord man, because you and several staff our gay doesn't give you a right to preach. Sigh....If everyone just shrugs their shoulders no one would be making a big fuss about it.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

NO moviegoers deserve their money back unless they were prevented from seeing the movie after paying for the ticket. They need to get over themselves: Opinions about movies are subjective and if studios started doing that they'd all go out of business.

I hate to say it but I never got why movie critics get famous. Most of them are horrible reviewers.

I love the spin on the latest KimmyKakes garbage. Oh look, isn't it wonderful, a judge gave KimmyKakes first day of trial off due to prior committment yet you azzholes ripped Kris H not once but several times for possibly missing the trial for playoff reasons. She didn't get this COMMITMENT until after the trial date was set and there is no reason they can't reschedule, you know, like how KRIS H should reschedule his playoffs. PFFTTTTT

I think the most intriguing thing about this whole story is we all know Magic is lying, his fruit cake messed up son is an absolute embarrassment to him

Congratulations to Mr. Gullible (Harvey) who believes Miss what's her face from Game of Thrones is really that broke. Give me a break, its another nasty divorce with a whole lot of garbage being tossed around. Go look at the ladies IMDB page and tell me she's actually living on credit with 5 bucks in the bank then go look for that account in the Cayman Islands
