Howard Kurtz Apologizes for Error on Jason Collins Article

May 06, 2013 09:18:56 GMT


Howard Kurtz used his CNN show "Reliable Show" on Sunday, May 5, to apologize for the report he wrote in Daily Beast about Jason Collins. In his writing, Kurtz suggested that Collins was dishonest by not telling readers that the NBA player was once engaged to a woman before coming out as gay in a Sports Illustrated cover. The mistake led to Kurtz's firing from the Newsweek Magazine.

"I read the 'Sports Illustrated' article by Jason Collins, the first pro male-team athlete to come out publicly as gay. I read it too fast and carelessly missed that Jason Collins said he was engaged previously to a woman and [I] then wrote and commented that he was wrong to keep that from readers when, in fact, I was the one that was wrong," he confessed.

'Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: Marilu Henner's 'Interesting' Leadership Gets Her Fired

May 06, 2013 07:27:52 GMT


Another project manager was dragged down into a pit of elimination in the May 5 episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice". This time, Marilu Henner had to pay the price for her mistake as she took charge of Team Power, leading Trace Adkins and Lil Jon to host a Foxwoods Resorts party in a suite at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Going for the King theme, Team Power showed a poor teamwork as Henner decided to go solo for food and kingly props, leaving Jon and Adkins handling the entertainment. With Hunter Hayes and LuAnn De Lesseps building the festive mood, the regal-themed party was apparently a bit too much for Adkins. "I never been to a party with massages and chess where people had their clothes on," Adkins cynically commented on Henner's creation.

'Iron Man 3' Posts Record With Second Best Opening Weekend

May 06, 2013 02:04:12 GMT


©
Following a great success in international box office, Shane Black's "Iron Man 3" this time rules domestically by landing on the top spot of North American box office in its first week. Taking in $174.1 million, the Marvel film posts the second biggest opening weekend behind "The Avengers", which opened to $207.4 million in April 2012.

"It is an extraordinary start," Disney executive VP of distribution Dave Hollis tells Reuters. "The start on the U.S. side is something that we are exceptionally proud of." Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo says that "IM3" success factor is placed on the fact that moviegoers considered the film more as a follow-up to "The Avengers" than as a sequel to "Iron Man 2", which was less well-received by critics and fans.
