Trump’s FCC Chairman Went After Alyssa Milano Over Her Net Neutrality Comments And She Totally SCHOOLED Him!

So, it turns out Alyssa Milano is the boss…

The Charmed star has been a crusader for Net Neutrality, an extremely important issue the FCC is voting on in just a matter of days.

At its simplest, net neutrality keeps the Internet as it is, with all websites given equal speed, allowing people to access what they want, when they want.

Ajit Pai, whom Donald Trump made the chairman of the FCC, has been Net Neutrality’s most vocal opponent. Essentially, he wants Internet Service Providers (and the corporations that own them) to have the power to create different speed channels — meaning some websites will go faster, others will start to CRAWL like it’s 1994 dial-up.

Trump obviously loves this because it’s good for corporations AND he gets to undo something Barack Obama did.

Because Pai apparently doesn’t want to answer direct arguments for keeping Net Neutrality, he’s instead making attacks on his opponents because they’re celebs — instead of convincing the American people.

Well, when he tried it on Alyssa, it did NOT go well for him! She tweeted in response to his insult:

For those who didn’t see it and don’t wish to look at his mug any more than they have to, he said:

“I’m threatening our democracy? Really? If this were ‘Who’s the Boss?’ this would be an opportunity for Tony Danza to dish out some wisdom about the consequences of making things up.”

Alyssa was ready to hit him back not with jokes but with facts, something he didn’t bring to the fight:

Look into Net Neutrality for yourselves — and if you agree with Alyssa call the FCC at 202-418-1000 and let them know!

Lil Peep Died From An Overdose Of Fentanyl And Xanax, His Toxicology Report Confirms

Investigators have

And more importantly, investigators can now confirm that the cause of death came from “the combined toxic effects of fentanyl and alprazolam,” according to reports out first this afternoon in TMZ.

Alprazolam is a generic form of Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug.

Toxicology also found that there were a LOT of other drugs in Lil Peep’s system, too. In all, he tested positive for cocaine, marijuana, and the painkiller Tramadol in his blood, with his urine testing positive for all of those drugs plus a few opiates, including Hydrocodone, Dilaudid, and Oxycodone among others.

Donald Trump Literally Cannot Stop Thinking About Hillary Clinton

Even though it’s now been MORE THAN A GOD DAMN CALENDAR YEAR since

Here is today’s word vomit, all in 140 280 characters… or less (below):

Sigh.

Our expectations are really, really, really low for The Donald anyways, but do you think he might be able to, like, focus on the task at hand for two seconds?

Hillary isn’t going to run in three years, and she has no interest in doing so. But Trump is the leader of the free world now. What if he tried, you know, actually leading???

Just a thought!!!

Partridge Family Star David Cassidy Surrounded By Family, Suffering From ‘Multiple Organ Failure’

Longtime TV star and singer David Cassidy, most well-known for his stint on the Partridge Family years ago, is apparently suffering from “multiple organ failure” at a Florida hospital, according to media reports.

The 67-year-old man was originally admitted to a Florida hospital earlier this week, and he’s now “surrounded by family” during this dire situation.

According to some outlets, the singer’s liver and kidneys are failing, and he’ll need a transplant to pull through. His spokesperson has confirmed that he is suffering from ‘multiple organ failure’ right now.

This isn’t the first health struggle for Cassidy, unfortunately; back in February, the star revealed he’s been battling dementia after he struggled to remember song lyrics at a show in California.

And several years ago, he battled substance abuse issues and even went to rehab to address and overcome them.

Now, things sound very serious as Cassidy is quite literally fighting for his life in a Florida hospital.

Our thoughts and prayers are with him, and his family, friends, and loved ones.

Porn Star Maddy O’Reilly Claims Matthew Perry Hit Her Up For ’40/50′ Painkillers & She Fears The Recovered Addict Might Have Relapsed!

Matthew Perry‘s friends might not be there for him, but porn star Maddy O’Reilly will be.

The adult film actress fears the recovered addict is relapsing after he allegedly hit her up two weeks ago asking if she knew anyone who could help him “purchase some pills.”

Maddy told DailyMail that the Friends star, a former lover of hers, contacted her asking to get him “40/50” prescription pills. When the 27-year-old asked what kind, the actor replied:

“Vicaden (sic)/Roxy’s/oxys.”

Perry, an outspoken advocate for addiction recovery since going public with his own substance abuse issues, was referring to Vicodin, Roxicodone and OxyContin — three highly addictive opioid painkillers.

In purported text exchanges obtained by DailyMail, the sitcom actor apparently told the porn star he would be willing to pay “a lot” for the pills — a desperate plea that worried the adult actress. She told DM:

“I was shocked, I knew he is a recovering addict but it was coming out of nowhere, why would he ask me something like that, it’s not like we partied or I have a reputation for partying.”

The two may have not partied, but they do have an intimate past.

The Penthouse cover model says she first met Perry in 2013 through a mutual friend. She allegedly went over to his house and the two had “a very nice evening” watching a movie in his screen room before they “ended up having sex.”

At the time, Maddy didn’t suspect the actor was taking opioids — she contends that “he seemed very normal, sober,” adding “we didn’t even have a glass of wine.”

But when Perry randomly got back it touch with Maddy on August 28, she grew concerned for his well being. After Perry invited her to dinner only to cancel at the last minute, the actor admitted he had been “going through a detox thing” and had “a nurse at my house.”

That’s when Perry asked Maddy his question about getting pills. Their conversation came to an end soon after. She added:

“We’ve not spoken since and I’m a little worried, but I don’t know him well enough to be able to do anything about it.”

We’d be worried, too. Do YOU think the actor has fallen off the wagon?

Head over to DM to read their full text exchange.
