What do you say to a girl like Maria? How about, “Another anti-gay, 'pro-family' Republican hopeful hypocrite bites the dust!” South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, who has been a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage as well as adoptions by gay couples, admits he spent the last week in Argentina with a woman named Maria.
The Governor is also known for loudly criticizing former President Bill Clinton a decade ago, demanding his resignation over the Monica Lewinsky affair, while building his political career by calling marriage a “sacred institution between one man and one woman.”

At the rate Republican presidential contenders are falling by the wayside, Governor Sarah Palin is beginning to look like a saint at this point. If that’s not a pathetic state of affairs, I don’t know what is! In the meantime, I’d like to say, “Thank you!” to Maria for helping to expose this hate-spouting politician. More information about her is coming to light on a daily basis.

Her full name is Maria Belen Chapur and she is a 43 year-old journalist and translator of English who worked for the Argentine television station Canal America for about a year, according to Gabriel Bartos, who was then a producer with Canal America. Bartos said that Chapur went to New York after the 9-11 attacks in 2001 to report for the station. Check out the video of her broadcast at the end of this story.

Reports say Maria Belen Chapur lives in the upper middle class Palermo quarter of the Argentine capital, and is separated or divorced from her husband. She was previously but erroneously reported to be an executive of the company Bunge y Born.
Maria Belen Chapur has little to smile about these days, unlike in this photo, as she is being stalked relentlessly by the press
We do know for sure she is the mother of two teenage sons, speaks several languages (Spanish, English, Chinese and Portuguese) and is highly educated, having attended St. Catherine's Moorlands School in the Belgrano neighborhood and graduated from the Universidad Católica Argentina with a degree in International Relations! (That’s not a joke! . . . or is it?). Here’s the video:

So, good old Michael Jackson is dead at 50, at the cusp of his long-awaited come-back. Say what you will about the man’s odd lifestyle, he was a mega-talent who will be sorely missed. He transformed the music and dance world with his revolutionary songs and moves.

The man would’ve stayed on top were his resources and energy not drained by court proceedings and bad publicity brought about by overzealous district attorneys who thought it was their mission to save the world’s children from him. Even after being found not guilty, he remained the butt of bad jokes from comedians the world over.

And yet, his fifty upcoming concerts were sold out, a tribute to the man’s talent. Sadly though, he never owned up to being as queer as a three dollar bill, but then he was kind of busy defending himself from charges of pederasty. Now, at last, all his problems are over. I sincerely hope he’s happy in Heaven with all those white clouds!

And Farrah Fawcett dead at 62, one year older than yours truly! I’ll never forget all the ferret watering bottles named after her when I was in the pet business.

She is still mainly remembered for her role as Jill Munroe in the TV series, Charlie’s Angels, during the mid seventies. But of course, she was more than an icon for a hair style and role model for pretty actresses everywhere.

This poster of Farah Fawcett reportedly sold over 23 million copies!
In 1983, she fired her manager, changed her hairdo, and set out to prove herself as a dramatic actress. Her surprising successes were an off-Broadway play, Extremities, wherein her character got the best of a would-be rapist, and the TV movie The Burning Bed, based on the true story of a woman long abused by her husband, who doused him with gasoline and lit him on fire. May Farrah Fawcett rest in peace!
