Mad Men’s effect on pop culture is undeniable (what else would explain the popularity of trapezoid coffee tables and hipsters ordering Manhattans in dive bars?).

By just updating the hair or shoe, a Jackie Kennedy ballgown or a mod little minidress can look super-modern.

Magic Johnson: I’m Behind My Gay Son A Million Percent

The Soul Train Awards 2012

Magic Johnson has nothing but praise for his son Earvin Johnson III (a.k.a. EJ).  The 20-year-old was filmed with his boyfriend in West Hollywood earlier this week. The former L.A. Laker player gave an interview to TMZ and shared that he asked EJ to open up when he was almost 13.

Johnson revealed, “We’ve known for a long time that my son EJ was gay. We finally had to sit down and talk about it. I told him, ‘Look, I’m gonna love you regardless, just let me know. Are you, or aren’t you?’ And finally he said, ‘Yes, I am.’”

He explained, “He was so young . . . I told him, ‘We are here to support you. We are gonna love no matter who you are, what you do. We just want you to love yourself and also make sure that you have all the information. I wanted to provide him with advice and guidance.”

Johnson added that EJ was nervous about his dad’s reaction.

“He really wanted to make sure I was okay. He wasn’t worried about his mom, he was worried about me. I love EJ so much. That’s my main man. I told him, ‘Nothing has changed.’”

The sports star – who has been a longtime supporter of the LGBT community – shared that his son coming out his week “was a moment for us as a family and an even greater moment for him.”

He added, “I think now he’s just the bubbly kid we knew again. He’s just happy that it is out. I’m behind him a million percent. This is really wonderful for him.”

According to US Weekly – Johnson addressed some of the negative, homophobic backlash from African-Americans in sports and elsewhere.

He said, “It bothers me that they’re discriminating against anybody who’s gay. I’ve been in the gay movement for a long time because of HIV and AIDS. I see young men who are black who couldn’t come out, who couldn’t tell their parents, their neighbors. So now, it’s my son.”

Johnson continued, “This is the year 2013 — we should stop discriminating against people. And that’s what I’m gonna do with my son. But I’ll also support others. This is gonna be good for a lot of black young people. It’s unfortunate that we have to go through some of this negative stuff. But it’s not gonna change me, it’s not gonna change my son and the way I love him. If people can’t understand it, that’s on them.”

Mom-of-four Gena Lee Nolin is inviting Celebrity Baby Scoop readers along as she shares her life experiences – and asks for advice – as she juggles her busy life with husband Cale Hulse and their four children: Spencer, 16, Caia, 11, Hudson, 6, and Stella, 4.

In her first guest blog, Gena talks about creating a sense of harmony in your family. From cultivating good listening skills, to honoring everyone’s feelings and opinions, to setting boundaries, the former Baywatch star shares some great tips. Continue reading her words of wisdom, and share your thoughts, questions and advice in the comments.

“Keeping “harmony” in our family isn’t something that just magically happened, it takes work by everyone in our family everyday. First, it’s important that each one knows they are loved and appreciated by the others. One way we can show this is to respect them, their ideas, and their property. For example, if someone is feeling sad or lonely don’t just disregard this. Ask why and listen to what may really be going on.

We can show respect simply by being polite to one another. This isn’t always easy when you have children ranging from 4 to 16 years old! However, a simple please and thank you goes a long way in our household and they’ve been taught that.

The one thing this mama bear has learned is to show respect for all ideas, this does not mean I agree with them. Sometimes children come up with some wonderfully outrageous ideas that need to be penned in their baby books. But through the hindsight of our wonderful parental wisdom we can clearly see their outrageous idea isn’t viable. Remembering children see the world through rose colored glasses, (wasn’t that the best??) I think holding on to the kid in ourselves, helps us understand our children and by doing so, makes us better parents.

Here are some key things that have helped us keep harmony in our home:

Listening to my children. Knowing that we really hear what they’re saying, means so much to them. Having respect for them from day one, allows that very same respect to reflect back on us. They follow our lead and do what we do… I have some goofy sayings, I guess it’s the Minnesota in me… But my 6 year old just said in the car, good gravy mom, we’re going to be late! “Good Gravy!” Yes, it could’ve been much worse! But still…. [Laughing]

Remember each family member has different needs. Taking my little ones to the zoo does nothing for my 16 year old who wants to go see “Argo” for the third time to then discuss the film over dinner. One doesn’t always go along with the other. So, that’s where time management comes into play. I’ve had to make special mom time for each of them. Not always easy, but it can be done.

Did I forget that I had a husband? No… Of course not! Mommy and Daddy time is absolutely necessary! We always take a night to have special alone time. Whether it’s as simple as a walk or dinner, even a night out with another couple. Just being romantic in some small way is the glue to keeping harmony in our family. I call it the pyramid effect. When Mommy and Daddy are happy, everyones happy! [Wink] [Wink]

Having boundaries in all aspects of our lives is also so important, especially when it applies to our families. When you’ve promised your kids something, stick with it. Mean what you say, say what you mean. If someone from work say’s, we need you for this or that on Thursday night and I’ve already planned a night out with my family… Sorry, I can’t make it happen! Family always comes first. No if’s ands or but’s about it. Keeping your word creates accountability and in return makes my kids feel safe.

At the end of the day, NOTHING is perfect! We have our days where nothing works. Really, nothing! Kids are screaming, one is emotional with pimples being a lippy teen. I have pimples and cramps and I want to LOSE it! I guess looking back, there’s harmony in all of it. Except for the pimples and cramps!”
