Megan Fox Is Making Archeology Great Again

My two biggest fears in life happen to be pooping in a public place before checking if there’s enough toilet paper and a Megan Fox come back. Both very shitty scenarios. I live life with low expectations. It’s the reason why I don’t wear white underwear on taco and tequila night.

My two biggest fears in life happen to be pooping in a public place before checking if there’s enough toilet paper and a Megan Fox come back. Both very shitty scenarios. I live life with low expectations. It’s the reason why I don’t wear white underwear on taco and tequila night. It’s also the reason why I’m not surprised someone hired Megan to host a show about archaeology. I’m taking bets in the comment section that this “show” will be a commercial infused full 40 minutes of intermittent jump cuts to Fox’s tits. And if she hosts in anything else other than a neon bikini, I can guarantee the Travel Channel won’t get the ratings they were hoping for. Entertainment Weekly interviewed the star about her new series Legends of the Lost with Megan Fox, which debuts on the Travel Channel on December 4. Megan knows this isn’t what the public is expecting of her, but she says “this is something I’m genuinely passionate about…depending on which topic and which thing we’re discussing, I can be quite knowledgeable on archaeology and antiquities.” “I’ve traveled before, just shooting—we shot the second Transformers at the Great Pyramids in Giza, and we also were at the Temple Karnak in Luxor—so I’ve traveled and seen some of this stuff, which planted seeds along the way of things that felt like places I need to go back to or sparked interest.” Megan claims that her passion for archeology comes from filming Transformers in Egypt. Which means she happened to look up while repaying the director for her lead role. Seeing pyramids in the distance doesn’t instantly qualify a person to become a raider of the lost ark. Otherwise Megan could do an entire 11 seasons of an HGTV type show where she explains the many different types of ceilings in Hollywood homes. She has experience staring at so many of them from a horizontal vantage point for the mandatory physical exam portion of casting.

In case you didn’t know, Megan filed for divorce from Brian in 2015 after five years of marriage, but then they announced they were having a third child together and they ended up reconciling. “I’m seeing green, green, green. Does that mean anything to you at all?” Tyler said at the beginning of the reading. Megan responded, “That’s my husband’s last name.” “For some reason they’re having me talk about you. They’re having me talk about the past two years. There is almost a recovery kind of feeling behind this. Recovering and picking up the pieces,” Tyler added. During the reading, Tyler connected Megan with her grandmother and also brought up an inspiring message for her mother, who had just gotten out of a relationship days earlier. “What I took away from that was this is a time for me to really focus on healing myself emotionally and not unlike my mom, connecting to myself,” Megan said at the end. “Prioritizing my kids and making sure they’re okay, and at some point in the future, love will be revealed.” Megan Fox Receives an Inspiring Message From Tyler Henry Click inside to watch another clip from the episode… Tyler Henry Connects Megan Fox With Her Grandmother.....»»

Megan Fox Won’t Snitch On Her MeToo Assailants

Snitches get stitches, found in ditches, or end up like Whitey Bulger when the prison karma fairy pays a visit. Rats have been known to ruin a good thing. And the trading of sexual favors for cinematic favors was more or less a good thing. It created acting careers for women whose skill level often peaked at office secretary. If Megan Fox didn’t look like Megan Fox she’d be answering phones. Answering phones for a living sucks. So that’s probably the reason why she’s staying silent about her harrowing tales of the time men offered her available unfilled positions in exchange for making herself available in positions that needed to be filled. Megan Fox is known for speaking her mind when it comes to the ugly underbelly of Hollywood, but has kept largely quiet in the #MeToo era. As she explains it, it’s been a very conscious decision. Admitting she does have “quite a few” #MeToo stories of her own, Fox went on to explain why she hasn’t been as vocal about them as others in Hollywood. “I didn’t speak out for many reasons. I just didn’t think based on how I’d been received by people, and by feminists, that I would be a sympathetic victim,” she said. “And I thought if ever there were a time where the world would agree that it’s appropriate to victim-shame someone, it would be when I come forward with my story.” HR for plebeians doesn’t exactly have a MeToo division. If the fat creepy guy with a camera at work attempts to see what’s under your skirt, he gets a warning, and you still have to come back to work. Megan obviously reminds herself that MeToo comes with the possibility of landing on Hollywood’s blackballed list. And that means returning back to humble beginnings. By keeping her lips zipped she managed to score a show about archeology. Which beats being a paid pair of tits working as the front of the house hostess for Joe’s Crab Shack.

Megan Fox Admits Hitting A "Low Point" After Being Fired From Transformers & Talks Marriage With Brian Austin Green!

Megan Fox has thought long and hard about her fall from Transformers fame!

In the December issue of Cosmo UK, the actress recalled being fired from the franchise over an interview where she compared director Michael Bay to Hitler. Yeah, it didn't go over well, though she's only realized that in hindsight. Related: Megan Turns Up The Heat On The Runway Megan admitted: "That was absolutely the low point of my career. But without – ‘that thing', I wouldn't have learned as quickly as I did. All I had to do was apologize - and I refused. I was so self-righteous at 23, I couldn't see [that] it was for the greater good. I really thought I was Joan of Arc." When the sequel to Transformers was released in 2011, Bay in fact admitted it was her quote that got her kicked off the third movie. He told GQ Steven Spielberg told him to "fire her." Responding to it, Megan shared: "It hurt me and a lot of other people. However, that darkness that descended caused enormous and brisk spiritual growth. Once I realized I [had] brought it on myself, it was an invaluable learning experience, looking back on it." She has a really great attitude about it. Guess it has been six years! The 31-year-old also opened up about her short split from husband Brian Austin Green: "If you want it to last, you just have to stick it out. I know my karma isn't done. And so we're in it until the universe releases us. We're not completely in control of it. And he is a hunk." The two reconciled and called off the divorce when it was revealed they were expecting a third child in 2016. We're glad to hear they're still happy! Read on for more HIGHlights... On being an actress: "I would never pick work over life. I'm the least ambitious actress! I pick movies that'll be fun to make. I'm not here to suffer for the art of movie-making or 'bleed for the craft.' And I'm not going to be an actress forever. I've always known I have another calling." On the types of roles she gets offered to play: "I still get offered a lot of 'genius strippers' and 'funny escorts' by guys in the business. But I don't want to be involved with something genuinely degrading, or that encourages negative sexual ideals about women. Old-school male attitudes towards women, it's still in all the adverts. When my kids grow up, hopefully that attitude will be gone." On sex selling: "I'm not ashamed of sexy poses or parts. Women shouldn't go out of their way to be dowdy. Being feminine is a very sexy thing. It's just a biological fact: sex does sell. But I wish it were more gender equal. I'm happy to buy some sex, too. It's not wrong; it just needs to go both ways. Women shouldn't have to carry the burden. And I think we have so far. I understand I'm a product—but I don't have to like it. The truth is, I'm actually very private." Thoughts??

Reporter Silenced For Asking Questions About The Louis C.K. Sexual Misconduct Allegations At Comedy Festival!

A former journalist for the now defunct Gawker addressed this point as she recounted her attempt at investigating the Louis C.K. sexual misconduct allegations while at the 2015 Just for Laughs festival in Montreal. For a Vice tell-all, Megan Koester recalled how she was shut down after asking several prominent comedians to weigh in on the accusations brought against the Emmy winner. Related: Just For Laughs Festival President Accused Of Sexual Misconduct In case you forgot, there have been rumors swirling around the stand-up professional for a while, which claim Louis exposes himself to female comics without consent. Gross, right?? Koester shared: "In 2015, I attended the Just for Laughs (JFL) festival in Montreal as a journalist writing on behalf of Gawker, a profoundly flawed organization I miss desperately. The organizers of the festival did not know the purpose of my presence was a desire to investigate the numerous rumors I'd heard about Louis C.K. behaving in a sexually inappropriate way. Had they known, I surely would not have been invited to attend. Because Louis, you see, is a 'friend' of the JFL organization." While stationed on the red carpet, the reporter asked the comedians to first weigh in on the Bill Cosby scandal. Many were quick to denounce the industry titan as it was at the height of the controversy. However, the moment she brought up Louis, the funny men claimed ignorance. Megan only had the chance to interview a handful of comedians, including Kevin Hart, about Louis' misdeeds before festival officials intervened. The writer continued: "I had just finished with my third interview of the afternoon, Kevin Hart (who responded with incredulity before his handler escorted him away from me), when a woman holding a clipboard called me off the carpet. She told me 'we've been receiving complaints' about the Louis question; no one I had asked so far, however, seemed outwardly upset by the inquiry." Although no one seemed outwardly pissed, the festival laid into Koester for putting C.K. on the hot seat. She recalled: "A tall man in a suit approached, relieving her of the duty of admonishing me. He was, in a word, livid. In two words: fucking livid. Red faced, he informed me that JFL is a 'family,' that Louis is a member of said 'family,' and that I could ask my question on 'my turf,' but that this was 'our turf." This wasn't "that kind" of red carpet, he informed me—it was a "friendly one," and Louis was a "friend of the festival." The man, who Megan later learned was Just For Laughs COO Bruce Hills, then threatened to kick her out of the event if she refused to ask "nice" questions on the red carpet. Megan tearfully apologized for her line of questions and returned to the step-and-repeat. While contemplating if she should stick around and ask innocuous questions, she spotted pal/comedian Andy Kindler. Related: Blac Chyna's Mom Sues Wendy Williams! On her decision to flee the red carpet, Koester explained: "Instead of sticking around and, in all likelihood, getting 'officially' kicked out, I left. I then proceeded to literally cry on Kindler's shoulder. It was, by design, not a pleasant experience. It was an attempt to intimidate me into silence, and it was successful. I never wrote the piece." Mr. Hills has since responded to Megan's account with the following statement: "My intent was to keep our awards ceremony as a celebratory event. In doing so, I was in no way defending nor aware of any allegations towards talent. If Ms. Koester wanted talent to comment on the record, we would hope she go through the proper journalistic protocols, be forthcoming with her intentions and request a full interview. We always ensure all talent at our festival have fair notice and opportunity to decide if they wish to address such questions with a representative of the press." Hmmm, very inneresting. Despite the support she received from loved ones and peers, she felt isolated as no one was willing to publicly help her investigate the allegations. Megan concluded: "Because that's the thing when you try to follow stories like this. Everyone wants to be your Deep Throat, but only under the cloak of anonymity. No one wants to be publicly affiliated with you, lest their careers suffer like yours for daring to ask the goddamned question that's on everyone's goddamned mind." Fair point!! Remember folks, it only takes one victim to go on the record for the dam to break! [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»
