Catwoman Comes Out as Bisexual in New Comic

Posted in Entertainment News

DC Comics(NEW YORK) — Catwoman, the Batman villain/love interest, has come out as bisexual.

In the Catwoman No. 39 comic book, which was released this week, the character also known as Selina Kyle kisses another woman.

The writer of the issue, Genevieve Valentine, addressed the development in a post on her website.

Valentine wrote, “She’s flirted around it — often quite literally — for years now; for me, this wasn’t a revelation so much as a confirmation.”

“[P]lease be assured that Selina’s longstanding connection to Batman has not been forgotten; that is not how bisexuality (or humanity) works,” she continued. “Selina doesn’t care easily, but when she does care it strikes deep, and there will be plenty of that coming up.”

Catwoman was introduced in Batman No. 1 in 1940, the year after the Caped Crusader made his comic debut.

Vanilla Ice: Arrest Is ‘Just A Mess and I’m Dealing With It’

The rapper turned home renovator, Rob Van Winkle, appeared on Good Morning America Friday to promote the new season of his show, The Vanilla Ice Project, but first addressed his recent run-in with the law.

“That’s all I can say about it right now. It’s just a mess and I’m dealing with it,” Van Winkle explained.

The former rapper was arrested in Lantana, Florida, on February 18, accused of stealing furniture from a neighbor’s home. He was charged with burglary residence and grand theft, according to a Chief Sean Scheller at the Lantana Police Department.

“I’m purchasing the house,” Van Winkle said Friday. “I can’t really talk much about it other than that, but you know, I’m dealing with it.”

According to the arrest report, Van Winkle said that “he found several of the items next to the curb and he thought they were trash.”

The home in question, in Palm Beach County, is located near a residence that he actually does own and is renovating. According to authorities, the missing items — which included furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and other items — were found at Van Winkle’s property and later returned to the owner.

The total value of the items found at Van Winkle’s home totaled more than $6,000, according to the report.

“I wish I could elaborate,” he said on GMA.

The new season of Van Winkle’s DIY network show is called “Palm Beach Mansion Flip,” where Vanilla Ice and his crew remodel an “8,000 square foot house on the ocean in Palm Beach.”

“It was wrecked,” the host explained. “We removed over 300 trees, it was just neglected and now we’re turning it from zero to hero. It’s going to be gorgeous.” Van Winkle said they are adding amenities to the home such as a jelly fish aquarium, an infinity pool, an observatory, a glass atrium, a coffee bar and a fitness room.

The Vanilla Ice Project airs Saturday nights on the DIY Network.

seewhatmitchsee/iStock Editorial/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Twitter was overrun on Thursday night by debate, but not about sports, politics, or the results of Sunday’s Oscars. Instead, Twitter users struggled to decide whether a dress, posted to Tumblr and picked up by Buzzfeed was black and blue or white and gold.

Yes, really. Millions of tweets were set attempting to determine the true color of the mysterious dress. Throughout the night, Twitter’s trending topics included “#TheDress” and “#whiteandgold.”

The question got big enough to prompt celebrities to get in on the debate. Some were just as confused as we were.

Others were firmly on the side of blue and black.
