Posted onOctober 28, 2017byifnm|Comments Off on Kevin Sorbo Reveals He Was Sexually Harassed Early in His Career
The ‘Hercules’ star tells podcaster Adam Carolla how he was treated as a model by famous designer Gianni Versace.
Kevin Sorbo says the late Italian designer Gianni Versace sexually harassed him, becoming the latest celebrity to tell his or her sordid Hollywood tale amid the allegations of sexual assault against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The actor, best known for his starring role on the TV series “Hercules,” said on Adam Carolla’s podcast Tuesday that the deceased designer sexually harassed him when Sorbo was working as a model in the early ’90s.
Versace was shot to death in his Miami Beach home in 1997.
“I’ve got my sexual harassment story,” Sorbo said. “[Versace] wanted to meet me because of my height. At 6 foot 3 inches, he wanted me to do fashion shows with these 6-foot tall women.”
Sorbo said he was invited to dinner parties with the fashion designer and one time when he showed up to dine, no one except for Versace was there.
“All of a sudden, his hand goes up my leg,” Sorbo recalled. “[I told him], ‘Dude, you know I’m straight?'”
“This is why I like you. You’re not a girly man. You are a man’s man,” Sorbo said Versace told him.

“We’re the adults, and we need to act like it.” Refreshing words from a Hollywood celebrity!
Comparing college students to astronauts who spend too much time without gravity and lose their bone structure, Adam Carolla testified before Congress about the need to end campus safe spaces. He said college students must be exposed to opposing viewpoints and honest discussion, otherwise, they will lose their mental acuity. As an example, he said that when he co-hosted Loveline with Dr. Drew Pinsky, he toured the nation speaking at campuses, but that when he tried to do a speaking tour with Dennis Prager, he was told he couldn’t even speak at a local California State University campus. He argues that speakers should not need to get lawyers involved to allow for a marketplace of ideas for our students.

The conservative figures will address a dozen or so congress members on July 27 in Washington.
Members of Congress are curious about the riots that ensue at U.C. Berkeley and other universities seemingly whenever a conservative is scheduled to deliver a speech. A hearing has been scheduled on the matter, and among those invited to testify is comedian Adam Carolla, The Hollywood Reporter learned Friday.
Insiders say Carolla has accepted the invitation and will address a dozen or so congressmembers in a joint hearing of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Subcommittee on Health Care, Benefits and Administrative Rules and the Subcommittee on Intergovernmental Affairs for up to two hours on July 27 in Washington.
Others planning to testify include conservative author and pundit Ben Shapiro and Nadine Strossen, the former president of the ACLU and a founder of Feminists for Free Expression. The topic of the congressional hearing is: “Challenges to Freedom of Speech on College Campuses.”
Some of the members of Congress in those committees are Republicans Darrell Issa, Mark Sanford and Paul Mitchell and Democrats Eleanor Holmes Norton and Jim Cooper. For the majority Republicans, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio will lead the questioning.

Dennis Prager believes it could take decades to undo the damage done to American universities by the institutional left, if it can ever be undone at all — but that doesn’t mean he won’t pitch in on the effort.
The nationally syndicated radio host has partnered with comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla on a new film, No Safe Spaces, that will explore and then pick apart the culture of political correctness — and the left’s suppression of differing viewpoints and open debate — that has metastasized on college campuses throughout the country.
“If Americans understand what the Left has done to the universities, it will understand what it is doing and what it will do to America,” says Prager, who graduated from Brooklyn College and went on to attend Columbia University and the University of Leeds in England.
“The university is first, and then the rest of the country follows,” Prager explains. “The suppression of free speech, the rendering of kids into immature creatures who have little thought of their own, who are given slogans rather than ideas — the university is the least morally acute place in the United States, as an institution.”

The celeb is accusing California State University, Northridge of refusing to allow him to co-host a program with radio host Dennis Prager because of their politics.
A funny thing happened to some right-leaning filmmakers trying to make their case that conservatives aren’t welcome on college campuses: They weren’t allowed on a college campus.
At least that’s according to a letter that their lawyers fired off to California State University, Northridge in southern California.
Comedian Adam Carolla and radio host Dennis Prager are touring the nation’s universities while making their documentary film, No Safe Spaces, and their first stop, scheduled at CSUN, was canceled, according to lawyers, because the content of a talk they were to give was deemed politically incorrect.
The presentation was supposed to consist of Carolla interviewing Prager at the Campus Theater on Dec. 1. The topic was rather vague, but it invariably was to focus on the duo’s assertion that the political left has a stranglehold on most colleges, and it was to be filmed so that some portions would have presumably ended up in No Safe Spaces.
Adam Carolla isn’t going to tell you who to vote for. But he is going to tell you who NOT to vote for. And in a time when candidates running for office promise the moon, one of America’s funniest comedians shares a few tips about how to spot the candidate that you should run from.
I watch Hollywood awards ceremonies where a supposed artist screams out for punching people in the face for political disagreements, and the entire horde of Botoxed brain zombies leaps to their feet in an ungodly and unholy howl of rampant bloodlust approval.
“We can call it Cultural Marxism, but at the end of the day, we experience it on a day to day basis, by that I mean a minute by minute, second by second basis. It’s political correctness and it’s multiculturalism.” – Andrew Breitbart
