Anna Paquin explains her bisexuality to Larry King

“True Blood” actress Anna Paquin joined Larry King this week and answered questions about her sexuality.

King asked Paquin, who is married, if she was bisexual before her marriage.

Paquin clarified, saying, “Well, I don’t think it’s a past-tense thing. Are you still straight if you are with somebody?’ … If you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.”

“Larry seems uncomfortable,” Dennis said.

Said Minihane: “Bisexuality, to me, I’ve never really gotten my arm around.”

“Doubles your chances on Saturday night,” Dennis said.

Said Dickerson: “Some people just don’t know.”

CNN reportedly sued after correspondent Arwa Damon drunkenly bit two EMT in Baghdad

CNN reportedly is being sued by two employees of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad after senior international correspondent Arwa Damon was “seriously intoxicated” and bit them as they provided her medical aid July 19.

EMTs Charles Simons and Tracy Lamar claim Damon, 36, still is being employed by CNN despite a “history of becoming intoxicated and then abusive.”

“I’m thinking tequila or gin,” Dennis said. “Those are the angry alcohols.”

Minihane said: “I’ve been drunk a lot in my life. You’ve got to be pretty drunk to bite somebody.”

Hotel reportedly charges $500 fine for bad reviews

Union Street Guest House, an upscale hotel in upstate New York’s Hudson River Valley, reportedly has a guest policy that fines people $500 for bad reviews.

“That is wholly unconstitutional,” Dennis said.

Minihane said: ‘That’s the law, isn’t it?”

“It’s not just you,” Dickerson said. “Say it’s your wedding and I go to it, you’re getting fined $500.”

The policy sparked an uproar, causing the hotel to quickly delete the policy from its website and posting an explanation on its Facebook page.

On Monday’s edition of Three For All on Middays with MFB, Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz discussed Fauria’s interesting booking request and Segio Garcia‘s unlucky drive during the Bridgestone Invitational. To listen to the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

Benz went to New York City this past weekend and stayed at Hudson Hotel — a modern, chic residence with very small rooms for its guests.

“You go upstairs and you get in your room, and it’s kind of set up like if you’re on a cruise ship, like cruise ship quarters,” Benz said. “It’s so tight and so compact, and obviously the point is, they don’t want you to be in your room, they want you downstairs at their expensive bar.”

In an odd coincidence, Fauria admitted that he stayed in the same hotel years earlier with the Patriots, sharing a room with two of his teammates. However, Fauria booked the room for a unique reason.

“I said, ‘How did you get three NFL players in there? These rooms are tiny,’ ” Benz said, adding: “[Fauria] goes, ‘Oh, we didn’t get the room for us, it was for our luggage.’ ”

“I want to get to the point in life where my luggage can have its own hotel room,” Benz said.

– Golfer Sergio Garcia‘s poor drive on the third hole of the Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday did not just sail into a group of spectators but right into a woman’s diamond ring. The diamond was dislodged as a result and was lost in the grass.

Garcia gave the woman a signed ball and information in order to replace the ring, but the diamond was eventually found.

“The question is: Should he feel responsible,” Fauria asked. “Should he feel indebted? Should he feel like he has to replace that diamond ring? It’s not like it’s really his fault, is it?”

“Sergio strikes me as the kind of guy that can get a hotel room for his luggage, so I think he might feel obligated, feel indebted, and to him, $10,000 to help replace a ring isn’t that big of a deal,” Benz said.

“It depends who you are, but I wouldn’t feel obligated by any means,” Merloni said. “She’s probably lucky that it was Sergio Garcia and not some amateur that’s on the Tour.”

“What would you have done?” Benz asked.

“I would have said, ‘Hey, I hope you find it. I’ll see you later.’ I’m not replacing somebody’s diamond ring,” Fauria replied.

Here are the highlights from Monday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and guest host Rob Bradford. To listen to the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

Robert Kennedy Jr. ties the knot with Cheryl Hines in Hyannis Port

Robert Kennedy Jr. married actress Cheryl Hines Saturday at the the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port. It is the second marriage for Hines and third for Kennedy.

Despite the happy occasion for both, Kennedy has had a fair share of baggage surrounding his previous struggles with infidelity. A story in the New York Post indicated that the environmental lawyer kept a list of 43 suspected mistresses under the letter ‘G’ for “goomah” on his phone. “Goomah” is slang in Italian for a mistress.

“I’ll ask you right now, like we were doing at your wedding: Over/under how long this lasts, this Robert Kennedy/Cheryl Hines wedding. … Three and a half years?’ Minihane asked Dennis.

“Oh no, under,” Dennis responded. “But doesn’t she go into this with her eyes wide open? … So she thinks she’s the one who’s going to tame him.”

Hines is perhaps best known for her role as Cheryl Davis, the wife of Larry David on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

“Watching the show, I never thought she would marry a Kennedy,” Bradford said.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” earns $94 million at the box office

It was a strong debut for Marvel’s newest film, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which earned $94 million to top the box office. It was the highest opening for a film released in August, shattering the previous mark of $69.2 million set by “The Bourne Ultimatum” in 2007.

Despite the positive reception surrounding the film, Bradford said that he struggled to stay focused when he saw it at the movie theater.

“I’ve gone to a lot of movies, as you know,” Bradford said. “I don’t remember having to get up in the middle of a movie and walk out and just walk around, because I was falling asleep. … I don’t think it was so much about the movie, I was just tired. It just wasn’t for me. It was a lot of CGI.”

Scarlett Johansson‘s newest film, “Lucy,” finished second at the box office with $18.3 million.

“I was about to say, No. 2 this weekend was ‘Lucy,’ and I was driving around, and I heard John Dennis say he saw ‘Lucy,’ I almost drove into the Kennebec River. I was so surprised,” Minihane said.

“I really wanted to go see ‘Boyhood,’ but Kathy didn’t want to see ‘Boyhood,’ ” Dennis responded.

“œYou really wanted to see it? It’s great,” Minihane said.

“I may go by myself, which I never do,” Dennis added.

Woman sentenced to 180 days in jail after getting caught having sex in public in retirement-community gazebo

A 68-year-old resident of a retirement community in Central Florida is trading in her comfy apartment for a jail cell for the near future.

Margaret “Peggy” Klemm was sentenced to 180 days in a Sumter County jail on charges of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct after getting caught having sex in a gazebo in the center of the community area.

“This is what’s going on with the elderly down in Florida,” Minihane said.

“Any community that has a gazebo is just asking for something like that to happen,” Bradford quipped.

“I think she should be congratulated, don’t you?” Dennis said.

On Friday’s edition of Three for All on Middays with MFB, Lou MerloniChristian Fauria and Tim Benz discussed a play from an Arena Football League game that Benz called, the newest NFL technology and a man who called 911 to try to get out of a speeding ticket. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

On ESPN’s top 10 worst sports moments this week, one of the plays that appeared was from a Pittsburgh Power AFL game against the Philadelphia Soul.

“Two-point conversion, Philadelphia is going for it, and they botch it,” Benz said. “So the Philadelphia team blows it on the two-point conversion and the ball rattles around 50 yards down the field the other way for a Pittsburgh Power two-point conversion of their own.”

The guys then played the audio of Benz’s call of the play.

“I like it,” Fauria said.

ESPN, however, did not play the audio on its segment.

“Courtesy of Tim Benz, they couldn’t go there?” Merloni said.

Said Benz: “That sucks. Now I’m pissed.”

– The NFL announced Thursday that it is installing a real-time tracking system by Zebra Technologies in 17 stadiums this season.

Players will have quarter-sized chips on their uniforms that will sync with radio receivers in the stadium to provide statistical information such as a player’s position, speed, acceleration and total distance run. 

“So what it’s going to do is for 15 Thursday night games, they’re going to be able to track the distance and speed to enhance the fan experience,” Fauria said. “Not every stadium is going to have this, but every team will be part of this process.

“So if I catch a ball and start running, automatically you’re going to know where I caught the ball, how many yards I ran after I caught it. It even goes so far to say how many yards back an offensive lineman pushes a defensive lineman.”

Gillette Stadium is one of the fields that will have this technology this season.

Fauria said he hates it because there would be too many stats thrown on screen at once.

“I don’t want lines all over the screen either, but if you use that at some point during the game and just sort of post the information you get in the background, that’s a different story,” Merloni said.

– Florida police said a man made a phony 911 call to report a possible murder in progress as he was being pulled over in an attempt to get out of a traffic ticket.

Every officer available went out to respond to the situation except for the officer giving him the ticket. The man who made the call, named Julius Lupowitz, had his name read aloud by the dispatcher over the police radio. The officer writing the ticket realized what was happening and caught him.

“Rather than getting a $200 traffic ticket, he’s now facing a felony charge with a five-year maximum prison term,” Merloni said.

Said Benz: “We couldn’t have found out he had meth or something in the car?”
