Last night's Celebrity Wife Swap was one of the weirder ones yet, and it has many people asking this morning, "Is Corey Feldman running an all-girl sex cult?" It certainly appears so, though it's not clear if this is all an act, if he is in on the joke, or if he has truly gone batshit crazy. His behavior on the episode, which saw the former Lost Boys and Goonies star swapping girlfriends/fiancés with comedian Tommy Davidson, certainly indicates that he has lost touch with all reality, as the former teen heartthrob presents himself as a cross between Charles Manson, Hugh M. Hefner and Michael Jackson.
Corey Feldman introduces his girls, known as Corey's Angels, on the show. And this is a very real thing that he does. He tours around the country performing with these woman, three of whom live with him in his Feldmansion. This Celebrity Wife Swap episode was difficult to watch, and can only be described as cringe worthy. Corey's Angels is described as a 'business', but the more the former teen actor talked to the audience about it, it started to sound like a straight up cult. And at the end of the episode, Corey Feldman tries to make a case for why Corey's Angels is important to humanity, claiming that he is saving women from broken homes. He says this as though he has just rescued a puppy off the street.Read More
Sean Astin was doing a live HuffPost interview in support of his new comedy Moms' Night Out when he was surprised by guest Corey Feldman, who also has The M Word currently in theaters. It's not those two movies that had the former co-stars talking, though. It was the thought of reuniting for The Goonies 2 that got them both excited. And it sounds like it's a real thing.
Both actors agree that original writer Chris Columbus will be back in some capacity. If you can't wait for The Goonies 2, both Moms' Night Out and The M Word are in select theaters this weekend.Read More
What started off as a pesky TMZ interview quickly turned into the biggest movie news of the month as director Richard Donner confirmed he is moving forward on The Goonies 2 with the entire cast set to reprise their roles. We've been hearing about a sequel for years, so we thought this was just more talk. But then star Corey Feldman also confirmed that the movie is actually in the process of happening, and that Steven Spielberg, who served as an executive producer on the first movie, and original writer Chris Columbus, are helping get this to the big screen...For real this time. Maybe it will happen, maybe it won't. But the fans have made their voices very loud and clear. Millions of Goonies want their Goonies 2! It being a true sequel and not a reboot or remake, it might actually be good. But, as often is the case, it lingers on the edge of turning into a very dangerous proposition. Just look at the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise and how the fans have reacted to that. Or what's currently happening with Jem and the Holograms, a movie whose lack of female voices behind the scenes has pissed off girls of all ages. That can't happen with The Goonies. We're here to help, just a little. Here are 7 Things We Need to See in The Goonies 2, in hopes that its not a complete wash!
