It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Next Monday Dallas Will Change Forever!

"Next Monday, Dallas will change forever" is how the TV spot for TNT's Dallas begins.

I know, I know, you're probably thinking Ryan and I are the geekiest of all geeks, but we grew to love J.R. Ewing.  After watching 15 seasons of DALLAS together, we are going to cry our eyes out next week.

"All his schemes - all his double-crossing - all his deceptions - lead to the moment - you can't miss,"  then the phone goes dead.  And just like that our hearts stop.  "DAD!"  John Ross cries out on the other end.  "The end of J.R. Ewing"  and a soft-spoken "Dad" is how the ad ends.

It's amazing how good this show has been.  Ryan and I have watched every episode and each one leaves you with the iconic cliff-hangers Dallas was made popular for.  We are truly going to miss Larry Hagman, the actor.  He survived so much and died playing the character he loved most. Rest in peace, J.R..

I expect we'll both be crying during next week's airing, my love. In this past episode the only scene featuring J.R. was when a caregiver was showing him how to play "Angry Birds" and after that any mention of J.R. was done off screen. This can only mean that at this point during filming is when Larry Hagman sadly died, but you gotta give it to the writers though. They could have done a so so special effects job to try and bring J.R. back to life in one final scene, just like HBO did to the actress that played Tony Soprano's wife when she unexpectedly passed, but fortunately they didn't. I feel that having J.R.'s final scenes be off screen ultimately gave Larry Hagman a final exit to Dallas that he truly deserved. I honestly expect the next episode to be one of the best that Dallas has ever offered to us. I'm sure that he wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
