Blake Lively Gets Foot-In-Mouth Disease

Blake Lively managed to offend a whole group of people with one quote in the new issue of ELLE.

Blake Lively wants 'tranny' sonsOh, Blake Lively. The leggy, gorgeous Gossip Girl star is fun to look at, but it seems like she doesn't have a lot going on upstairs. At least not when around ELLE magazine reporters. The girlfriend of Ryan Reynolds spoke about her future children in a new cover interview with the magazine — and she managed to offend a whole bunch of people in the process.

"I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies," she told the magazine. "Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated."

Um, okay.

Lively meant it as a joke, but it comes off as incredibly insensitive. Even Christian Siriano was blasted for using his signature phrase, "hot, tranny mess," on Project Runway. GLAAD also trashed Glee for using the word during an episode.

"Unfortunately the larger problem here is that the word "tra**y" has become an easy punch line in popular culture, and many still don't realize that using the term is hurtful, dehumanizing and associated with violence, hatred and derision," wrote GLAAD's Matt Kane in a November 2010 statement.

Besides that, Lively's interview was pretty boring — she claims she's only had four boyfriends and isn't looking for a new apartment with Reynolds.

"Newspapers say a lot of stuff, don't they? Though I wish I could afford half the places that I hear I'm looking at. Sign me up!" she said.

However, we're most upset about her Christian Louboutin talk.

"When I'm going to an event, I'll send Christian (Louboutin) a picture of my outfit and say, 'What shoes do you think I should wear with this?'" she said.

Not fair, Blake.

Oh please. That quote does not compare to a term like "hot tranny mess." My transgender women friends would love to check out her closet and hear her stories about the parties she wore them to and whatnot.
