I did not have sexual relations with that man, Mr. Clinton.

Gina Gershon denies the rumor.

I'm wondering, what with his reputation preceding him now, if Clinton finds picking up and scoring with chicks any more difficult than it was back in the old days.

It's got to be easier, I'd think.

Nice to see somebody in Hollywood has some standards of good taste.

I wonder when somebody will have the nads to ask Hillary the same question (bout Bill) :)

Clinton was the band nerd who envied all those kids that could get laid, when he couldn't. Rather than play in a rock band, he chose politics.

Unknown said...

I'd say easier.

She's no Monica.

Reports that Clinton stained a dress and used a cigar for penetration persuaded me that he suffered from erectile dysfunction. I'd guess that Hillary laid down the law: if she sees one more Rx for Levitra, she's cutting it off.

John Stodder said...

Watch the clip. She's actually making a good point--which the airhead hosts keep trying to turn into a cliched attack on the web and celebrity gossip. She's saying the news media has become so careless with its reputation for credibility, the result is the public is learning less about the world and can only rely on primary sources.

It's a very compelling point, especially when it's coming from someone as hot as Gina Gershon.

Mike Ballburn said...

I'm still trying to figure out how the statement, "Hollywood dinner-party gossip is that Clinton has been seen visiting with the actress Gina Gershon in California."
means he's having sex with her.
Does "visiting with" mean something different in the Clinton lexicon?

It's like Bush's appeasement remark.
Thou dost protest too much.

Best not to stand too close to Bill, much less smile and hug, lest you get those the had-sex-with-Bill cooties. Talk about guilt by association.

And good for her.
She's discovering what WF Buckley wrote about years ago. Since it is impossible to determine whether what is written is false, mostly false, or mostly true, distrust of the media is warranted. Everything it prints or televises is sifted through its ideologic filters or is completely fabricated.

Now she might ask what else have I believed that might not necessarily be so?

In some ways, reading Pravda was easier, because it was reliably a lie in the same direction all the time.

"We may ask what is relevant, but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar, the demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological , Damien. And powerful. So don't listen, remember that, do not listen."

paul a'barge said...

I don't know, based on the intensity of her denial I'd say Clinton did it with her.

If she had not slept with him I think she would have simply said "didn't happen, nothing to see, move along now".

Guilty as charged

I like it when Hollywood folks show character - like Clooneys crusade against dangerous paparazzi, Gary Sinease becoming a quiet but huge advocate for the disabled after playing George Wallace, the guy who nailed the NY Post gossip reporter trying to blackmail him, and Gina Gershon not standing for being slimed as Monica II.
Her lawsuit is quite good. She establishes that she only met Clinton 3X, all in parties attended by hundreds to a dozen other people, and defies "scumbag" Purdum and Vanity Fair's Editor to establish the basis for saying otherwise.

A magnificent moment that will get Gershon gush mail from half of Hollywood's elite sick of the false gossip industry..and more film parts..

A magnificent moment for Gershon second perhaps only to her emerging naked from an erupting volcano on stage in "Show Girls". Critics that called the movie the worst of the last quarter century still added - "Though Gershon can actually act very well and does, and looks stunning..no way does she salvage this cast and production roadkill"

Bob said...

Well, if she did do it, she's at least very unlikely to save a splooge-covered dress as a souvenir.

Guilt by association is just fine around here, so long as it's done to Bill or Obama.

Just don't you dare do it to
McCain! That would be soooo unfair!

I've read that some of the Playboy bunnies are eager to have a go with Hugh Hefner before he dies. What a happy harmonic convergence of cosmic forces for him. It certainly would not ruin his reputation if the girl afterward went to the press and told all about the happenings. Sadly such a harmonic convergence does not exist for Bill Clinton. He is surrounded by women who would gladly do it just to be part of history, but there is always the possibility--the probability-- that they would blab about it afterwards. Water, water, everywhere but not a drop to drink. My heart goes out to the poor suffering bastard.

Meade said...

He isn't her employer, priest, or faculty advisor, right?

She isn't his intern?

None of my business.

Like Megan Marshack? Remember Billy Jeff had a quadruple bypass. Who's gonna guarantee it's gonna hold?
