Chuck Barris, ‘Gong Show’ Host, Dies at 87
Chuck Barris, who hosted “The Gong Show” and created “The Dating Game” and “The Newlywed Game,” died Tuesday of natural causes in Palisades, N.Y., his publicist confirmed. He was 87.

His autobiography, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” was made into a film directed by George Clooney and starred Sam Rockwell as Barris. In the book (subtitled “An Unauthorized Autobiography”), he claimed to have worked for the CIA as an assassin during the 1960s and ’70s, a claim which the CIA denied. “He also fabricated his life because it might have been the best way of getting at the truth. The truth was that back when he was the Jerry Springer of his day, he couldn’t stomach being attacked for doing something he considered harmless,” wrote Joel Stein in Time magazine.

The multi-talented game show creator was also a songwriter, writing songs such as “Palisades Park” as well as music for his game shows.

Get Your Ass Out Of Your Pants: It’s COCKtail Time

Fans of The Golden Girls and Gay Dudes (Venn Diagram that: One circle), you might want to take your gingham culottes off for the following video, which will leave you both hungry for a man and a poorly cooked meal by a Chippendales dancer. Starring Irl Blanche Devereaux, “Cooking With Beefcake Too” is a journey through food and ass. Bare, tan, strong, muscley, smooth ass. These asses, peeking out through a tasteful apron, help our heroine out around the kitchen performing various culinary tasks just short of eff-gering her on the dining room table. If the double entendres in this video were turned into a film, the title would probably be 2 Fast 2 Furious — there are Tons. Between the COCKtails, her slow-stroking of rolling pins (“make it hard” — what?), to her clothing (Supreme), to the male strippers who will do anything and anyone for a buck, “Cooking With Beefcake Too” makes
