    wow. i had to laugh when she said that she has gay friends. i bet she said that as a feeble attempt to keep from being eaten alive by people on the internet. And no offense but she looks like an air head. she looked like she didnt know what she was saying half the time.
    P.S. I love Glee and the kiss between Kurt and Blaine was my favorite moment in the entire season. ( kurt is my favorite character)

    Ignorance is not bliss....someone get this woman some help. Nothing and no one "makes" young people gay, especially a television show. The narrow-mindedness that so many people still have in this country (in 2011!!!) is astounding. Gay is not going away. There is nothing wrong about being gay. The sooner people accept that fact, the better off the country will be.

    She always played dumb blondes. Apparently, it must have been very easy for her to play the part.

    There is a reason she is an EX-star.

    I feel sorry for her teenager.

    Too bad there isn't a medicine to cure people whose brains have been devoured by "their" Jesus. Jesus was cool. I'm sure he was gay.

    Guess the host of Showbiz Tonight proclaimed their corporate bias clearly by telling Ms. Jackson "Frankly we were outraged" (by her comments). Why is it those in Hollywood can so hypocritically adhere to a double-standard by championing civil freedoms on one hand & then openly castigating someone on air on the other hand for simply exercising her rights to freedom of speech & religion? Please get the point Hollywood, and the point is, millions of great Americans do not share your liberal acceptance of the gay lifestyle and are patently disgusted by such displays on prime time tv, especially when a cast of minors & a teenage target audience are involved.

      I don't usually post on here, so here goes.
      See the problem with most people like you and Victoria Jackson is that you are hypocrites to the finest degree. You blatently pick and choose which parts of religion that you want to adhere to in order to justify your bigoted hate filled nonsense againts people of other lifestyles as you. If you want to be justifiably able to keep your bigot ways without being hypocritical, you might want to start by reading your precious book from cover to cover and adhereing to ALL of the rules your desert blood diety has given you to follow. This includes going back to the days before the civil rights movement, before the civil war, and before women's sufferage. You'd be surprised how ridiculously nasty your religion is if you ever took the time to look at it as a whole.

      And I suppose it makes you intelligent to call people who express ideas different than your own "dumb, fools"? Hardly.

      And it is only a "fool" who would take a religion and turn it into a justification to discriminate against and hate those who are hated by that evil vain 'god" of the old testament. This Religion reminds me of another intolerant hateful collection of religious dogma with a different name and it's own book.
