▪ Republican Caitlyn Jenner this week said she is considering a run for U.S. Senate from California. “The perception of the Republican Party is that they are all about rich white guys trying to make money,” Jenner said in a radio interview, adding that she GOP lawmakers on behalf of LGBT issues. “Can I do a better job from the outside?” the Olympic gold medalist said. “Or are you better from the inside?” Her Senate talk comes a week after musician Kid Rock set up a website devoted to a possible run against Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan.
▪ Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter launched a Twitter war against Delta Air Lines for bumping her from a reserved aisle seat to a window seat. Flying from New York City to Florida, the 6-foot-tall Coulter, 55, had reserved an aisle seat with extra legroomhould have booked the seat in advance.’’ Coulter compared airline employees to prison guards and East German police. Delta refunded Coulter $30 for the seat downgrade, but stuck up for itself, tweeting, “your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”
▪ An early-1990s letter from Madonna surfaced last week in which a despondent Material Girl trashed the talents of both Sharon Stone and the late Whitney Houston. “It’s so unequivocally frustrating to read that Whitney Houston has the music career I wish Inyone is publishing your private letters,” and that she has felt “as mediocre as you described.... I love and adore you.” A judge blocked the auction of that letter and other Madonna memorabilia, which she says were stolen.
