He's such a prick funny part when he was clearly trying to say he was instrumental in his success, but instead he said, "I was detrimental to my own career."

well we will wait and see what the final word is - but too much stress on a 25 year old heart?  Doing what to cause such stress?  Makes no sense especially since she had two fairly recent pregnancies - if there was something wrong with her heart it would have shown up then.

Wretched situation - I pity her family for the grief they feel now.

Heroin played a role in the tragic death of Peaches Geldof, a senior police officer has revealed.


Quote
The mother-of-two's last known contact was a phone call with a friend the night before she died.

The writer and model is said to have appeared normal during the conversation and was even planning a family outing the next weekend.

At the opening of her inquest in Gravesend, Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said a post-mortem examination was inconclusive, prompting further tests.

But he told the hearing: 'Recent use of heroin and the levels identified were likely to have played a role in her death.'

*Puts flame suit on*

The only person I feel sorry for are the kids, not Peaches; she had endless privilege to live a straight life and she had the chance to make something of her life for her kids, but threw it away on drugs. Not one bit of pity towards her for her choices.

Frankly, given that she's a worthless druggie, throwing her life away on that stuff, her kids now have a better chance at a good life without her around.

Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, a coroner has ruled.

The TV presenter had been a heroin addict and took the substitute drug methadone for two-and-a-half years before her death, the inquest heard.


Quote
Det Ch Insp Paul Fotheringham, who led the investigation, said "importation quality" heroin with a purity of 61% - "far exceeding" the 26% purity usually found at street level - was found in a black cloth bag inside a cupboard over a bedroom door.

"The black bag also contained 34 medical syringes, some were with needles and some without, some were sealed in original packaging and some contained traces of a brown coloured residue," he said.

"There were also 45 packaged and sealed syringes, alcohol wipes and cotton buds."

Quote
The syringe containing the fatal dose was discovered in a cardboard box next to the bed, which also contained sweets.

Forensic scientist Emma Harris, who had been involved in examining the body, said: "Tolerance to heroin... appears to be lost fairly rapidly when users cease to use the drug, and deaths commonly occur in people who have previously been tolerant and have returned to using heroin."

Pathologist Peter Jerreat said the levels of heroin in Geldof's body were in a "fatal range"; while evidence of codeine, methadone and morphine were also found in her blood.

He further noted that puncture wounds were found on Geldof's body on her elbows, wrists and thumbs.

Comedy will never be the same; he was one of the few comedians who kept his act fairly clean and you could take your kids to his movies.

I always thought that the second wife was a big mistake. 
After all, she was Robin's first-born's nanny when they hooked up.

Thing is, that Robin had to sell this home he loved because he had to foot the divorce bills. I think that might have sent him over the edge. As for her adultery, the twit former nanny deserves nothing. I think she is the one who filed for divorce and since he had a first wife he was supporting, frankly I think lifelong alimony should be subject to certain conditions, most notably if the woman is in her thirties then she should have limited alimony and only for a limited time. One thing if the wife is a lot older, but quite another when the wife is still fairly young and should have been self sufficient in the first place. As for child support it should be placed in a trust.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcnFbCCgTo4&index=1&list=RDpcnFbCCgTo4http://

funny though - brilliant  LOL

I suspect the alimony which was paid out years ago may have had less impact that his TV show being cancelled.  Really a shame though - he was brilliant and to think he suffered so from depression that death seemed preferable - just awful.



Title: Joan Rivers dies at 81
Post by: Fly on the wall on September 04, 2014, 09:42:31 pm
Joan Rivers dies at 81; driven diva of stand-up comedy, TV talk

n 1986, Joan Rivers made a fateful call to her mentor Johnny Carson..

Rivers, the brassy comic with the thick New York accent who had made "Can we talk?" her catchphrase, told the all-powerful host of NBC's "Tonight Show" that she was giving up a role as his handpicked heir to do her own show on Fox.

It was, depending on how one looked at it, a bold bid for bigger stardom — or a stunning act of betrayal. Carson's reaction was unambiguous. According to Rivers, he hung up on her — twice — and never spoke to her again in the remaining 19 years of his life. After her late-night show on Fox bombed, Rivers said she was virtually blackballed from TV.

"My career was nowhere," she told the TV Academy in a 2011 interview. "I could not get arrested."
http://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-joan-rivers-20140904-story.html#page=1


Celebrities from all facets of Hollywood are coming out to pay tribute to Joan Rivers.


Don Rickles -- Our dear Joan is gone. Knowing her, working with he and enjoying the fun times of life with her was special. She will always be in our hearts.  She was a good friend to Barbara and I. Melissa, be strong and take care of your son Cooper.  Joan…we will miss you.

Barbara Walters -- No one loved life, laughter, and a good time more than Joan. We would have dinner and laugh and gossip and I always left the table smiling.   She was a brassy, often outrageous, and hilarious performer who made millions laugh.  In private, she was the picture of elegance and class.  I will miss her.

Donald Trump -- Joan Rivers @Joan_Rivers was an amazing woman and a great friend. Her energy and talent were boundless. She will be greatly missed.

Bret Michaels -- My deepest condolences to the family of @Joan_Rivers. She was a very funny lady and will be missed. #JoanRivers

Kathy Griffin -- A legend, a friend, a mentor, an icon, and wildly funny. One of a kind. RIP

^^The not-so-silent tom toms are slightly, let's say 'confused' about Robin Williams' widow's behavior.  Time will tell but there seems to be very little doubt that Robin was under a ton of pressure to keep his family financially above water and even talk of 'assisted' suicide.  Stay tuned on that one but I didn't like the vibe from her at the very beginning.  How do you know, for one thing, that your body afflicted with Parkinson's, is going to be able to successfully manage this?  Lots of questions out there beginning.

As for Joan, there's an investigation already on board I see.  Why, for instance, did the clinic not have the proper life support system available?  Melissa will be a bulldog on this one.  I was appalled, for instance, when I went in for a colonoscopy and the anesthesiologist just decided not to show up!  I went through that one cold.  Good thing nothing went wrong or needed attention.  They looked really flustered because the doc came in and said, "Where's Buddy?"  "Didn't come."  And they went ahead with it.  Egads.

Lauren Bacall, Hollywood Legend, passed on the day after Robin Williams. The world lost some legends last month.

I felt sad when I saw Patch Adams and saw Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Williams together in scenes. So sad.

Actually Robin Williams still had to pay $$$ to his first wife who demanded lifetime alimony (and they divorced ages ago). I think he also was still paying alimony to his second wife. I am not so sure the third wife should be blamed.

Joan Rivers' funeral set for New York
Sept. 4, 2014, 9:15 PM EST
Late comedian Joan Rivers' life is set to be celebrated at a funeral in her hometown of New York City this weekend.

The veteran funnywoman, 81, died at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital after she was removed from life support following a cardiac and respiratory arrest on Aug. 28. Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, shared the sad news of her mother's passing on Thursday, and now it has been announced funeral services for Rivers will be held at Temple Emanu-El, the synagogue where she was a member.

A statement from Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson to ABC News reads, "It is a terribly sad day for all of us. We mourn with her family, friends and all those millions to whom she brought laughter and joy."

Meanwhile, tributes continued to pour in throughout Thursday, and among them was Rivers' co-host of fashion commentary program "Fashion Police," Kelly Osbourne.

She shared her grief in a statement that reads: "I'm completely heartbroken by the loss of my beloved Joan. Not only was she my boss, she was and will always be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew. She was family and I will never forget her. Laughter will be difficult for a while but when I'm sad, lonely or upset all I will have to do is think of Joan and a smile will cross my face. Laughter is what she gave us and laughter is what she would want us to do in remembrance of her. "Melissa and [grandson] Cooper, my thoughts are with you and I love you both so much. Joan, thank you for taking me in and loving me as a daughter. I will miss you deeply and will always hear your voice in my head saying, 'My darling get out there and be you!'"

In the Jewish tradition, these things have to be done fairly quickly so I can't imagine there was a ton of time to do all the things she wanted.  Was she cremated?  That's the usual way of the Jewish faith, at least it is in California.  I challenge anyone to find an actual cemetery in all of SoCal other than Forest Lawn in LA.

BREAKING NEWS: Bruce Jenner involved in in Malibu car crash that has left one person dead
Bruce Jenner was involved in a three-car pile-up at noon on Saturday that left one person dead and seven injured.

The 65-year-old former Olympian rear-ended a white Lexus and sent it flying into a Hummer on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, reports claim.

The female driver of the Lexus died at the scene, officials told TMZ.

Jenner, who walked away from the crash apparently unharmed, insists he was being chased by five paparazzi, according to the site.

It does beg the question: where did the pictures in the article come from? Did they come upon the scene while going elsewhere? Or were they following the man (as his family reports) and were there when it happened?

Oh my! That white car...the driver's side...hit by a Hummer...there are no words.
There is one photo showing the waterside edge of the highway.
The accident between the hillside and the water.
There wouldn't be a good outcome either way.

EXCLUSIVE PICTURES Bruce Jenner takes sobriety test at the roadside after horror four-car pile-up: Reality star rear-ends Lexus leaving one woman dead and five children hospitalized

Bruce Jenner has been involved in a fatal car crash in which he rear-ended a driver who veered into oncoming traffic and died.
The former Olympian, 65, smashed his Cadillac Escalade into the back of the victim's white Lexus, which was reportedly pushed into the path of a Hummer, which left the vehicle a crumpled wreck and the sole occupant, an elderly woman, dead.
Five children - and two adults - were also hospitalized in the fatal smash, while Jenner himself was unscathed. These pictures show him taking a sobriety test in front of officers in the wake of the horrific collision, which he passed.

From CNN
Sat Feb. 7

Jenner was driving a black Cadillac SUV that was the third vehicle involved in a multiple read-end collision, Sgt. Philip Brooks of the sheriff's department said.

The first vehicle was a black Prius that stopped short, CNN affiliate KCAL reported, citing deputies. Behind it was a white Lexus sedan that also hit its brakes.

Jenner's Escalade was towing a trailer with an all-terrain vehicle on it when it ran into the Lexus from behind, Brooks said. The Lexus spun into oncoming traffic and was hit by a Hummer H2. The driver of the Lexus was killed.

KCAL reported Jenner's SUV left skid marks.

The midday wreck came just after noon on Pacific Coast Highway near Corral Canyon Road, the department said in a news release.

...No information about the deceased was immediately available.

...The accident occurred on a tricky stretch of the highway, where the road is narrow and twisting.

In a bizarre twist to the story, a car later drove through safety barriers around the scene and struck two of the cars from the initial accident, Cmdr. Mike Parker of the sheriff's department tweeted. The driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, Parker wrote.

From The Associated Press
Feb 8

The moment of impact was captured by celebrity photographers who quickly posted the images on the Internet, but Philips said there was no evidence Jenner was trying to get away from them.

"PCH is a straight road. There's no place to go to evade," [LA County sherrif's Sgt. Philip] Brooks said. "Being a celebrity, he's often followed by the paparazzi and he's aware of that. He was on his way home, and they happen to know his route."
------------

So my question is answered. Photogs were in the area.
The CNN article makes clear that this was a chain-reaction accident.
No info has yet been released about the fatality except that the driver was a 70-yr-old woman.

I read an article about the wreck last night and it referred to Jenner as the 'Kardashian family patriarch'. I was thinking, what does it say about that family that the 'patriarch' has now decided he is a woman?? :easter-sly:

Harvey Weinstein Won’t Face Charges Over Groping Allegations
Harvey Weinstein will not be charged in an incident in which a 22-year-old Italian model claimed he groped her during a meeting in Tribeca on March 27, prosecutors said on Friday.

“This case was taken seriously from the outset, with a thorough investigation conducted by our Sex Crimes Unit,” said Joan Vollero, spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. “After analyzing the available evidence, including multiple interviews with both parties, a criminal charge is not supported.”

Hi, I think here is right place for this question:
If I get this whole saga right the kids of Kris' 1st marriage see Bruce Jenner as their 'real dad', right? Why? The bio father died, is a absent father?
Or I'm missing something, they (the Kardashians, whatever they're named) just call their stepfather as Dad, because Bruce always have been caring and loving towards all of that kids and they have a good relationship with their bio father.
I have never seen the reality show, nor intended. But this whole 'Bruce Jenner become a woman' saga caught my attention.

Lamar Odom had multiple strokes as a result of his medical emergency ... this according to witnesses at the hospital.

We're told an MRI revealed since being admitted to the hospital in Las Vegas Tuesday night, Lamar suffered multiple strokes. It's unclear if brain damage resulted from the strokes.

We're also told Lamar is on a 3-5 hour dialysis for kidney failure.

Our sources say Lamar remains unconscious and unresponsive, which is in contrast to what Jesse Jackson just told the media.

Hospital Witnesses Claim
Evidence of Cocaine, Track Marks

EXCLUSIVE

1014-lamar-odom-tmz-01

Lamar Odom had cocaine in his system and track marks on one of his arms ... so claim witnesses at the hospital where Lamar lies unconscious.

The witnesses tell TMZ ... doctors have determined the former NBA star had cocaine and opiates in his system -- but it's still unclear if the track marks are fresh or from previous drug use.

We're told doctors have told people close to Lamar the fluid they found in his lungs was the result of crack cocaine use.

We're also told several of Lamar's party friends have come to the hospital to see him but they were turned away. 

Sources at the Love Ranch where Lamar was staying have said he was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra but no drugs were found. Dennis Hof who owns the Ranch tells TMZ he can't swear Lamar wasn't doing drugs in his room.

^Oh, Charlie deserves all the criticism you've probably read but perhaps it's also true that I hear and see things in California that bear another side to the man.  He's really well thought of and has a big heart; he's just a drug and alcohol addict and does absolutely nothing to hide that fact but is always trying to clean up his act so I can't fault him for his openness.   Someone I know was thinking of suicide, as another example, and her friend said Charlie heard about it and drove right over and stayed with the young man for days and got him help as soon as the kid was willing to talk.  Charlie never left his side.  Stuff like that.

^Oh, I totally get it.  I'd never vote him in for dog catcher and, as you know and mentioned, the Trust Factor with any addict plummets to zero after enough experience.  We all have our demons and Charlie has more than most.  Time will tell.  This is the first time I've seen him look healthy in a long, long time and I hope he keeps his HIV in check and is telling the truth that he didn't 'share' it with anybody.  Nobody is all good or all bad but even before he got far too much money (bad bad bad for anybody but everywhere in Hollyweird) he was a good guy. 

I'm super glad nobody ever gave me millions of dollars and no limits or never said "NO!".  God only knows.  Not that he's anything like Prince Harry but Harry, without the anchor of the duty he has could easily have gone off the rails.  He, too, has a good heart but doesn't know when to say when, or didn't, in the past.

Prince, singer and superstar, dies aged 57 at Paisley Park

he hugely popular, acclaimed and influential musician Prince has died at his home in Minnesota at the age of 57.
Police were called to a medical emergency at his Paisley Park estate earlier on Thursday, US media reported. An investigation is now under way.
Prince became a global superstar in the 1980s, with albums such as 1999, Purple Rain and Sign O' the Times.
His innovative music spanned rock, funk, and jazz, and selling more than 100 million records during his career.
"It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died," a spokeswoman for the musician said.
"There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time."

New York (CNN)Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has left France after being held at gunpoint and robbed by men dressed as police officers in a private apartment in Paris, French officials said.

A spokeswoman for Kardashian West said the celebrity was "badly shaken but physically unharmed" following the incident, which took place early Monday morning local time.

Quote
Kardashian was staying at an apartment inside of a private mansion that can be rented out for days or weeks at a time.
The French Interior Ministry said five men threatened the building's concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the private apartment.
Two of the men were able to gain entry to Kardashian West's room, according to the Paris prosecutor's office, and a gun was held to her head.
She was locked in a bathroom while the men took two cell phones and jewelry worth millions of dollars, the Interior Ministry said.

Quote
The prosecutor's office said a ring worth an estimated 4 million euros ($4.49M) and jewelry worth about 5 million euros ($5.6M) were among the items stolen.

Kanye West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.
According to law enforcement sources ... cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He was at his trainer Harley Pasternak's home at the time and was "acting erratically."
We're told police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer ... but still resistant to going to the hospital. We're told everyone -- his management and law enforcement -- convinced him it was best he go. Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital ... as standard protocol.
We got Pasternak outside his house late Monday evening. If he knows how Kanye's doing, he's not saying much

Explosive leaked emails reveal David Beckham's yearning for a knighthood and angry clashes over his charity work
http://uk.businessinsider.com/david-beckham-leaked-emails-2017-2

I think knighthoods should be scrapped, along with much of the honors system. It is just either for sale or for PR. Like much of the monarchy, it's just a joke and it's not like it does anything other than look pretty on a dress suit or uniform. The last thing anyone needs to handle is looking at the DM and seeing Beckham become Sir David and read about Victoria being referred to as Lady Beckham. It would kill the honors system off for good, the credibility of it.

Piers Morgan said he will never get a knighthood now, not that he deserved the meaningless gong in the first place.

^^^^  Totally agree, the honours system is so low down in the gutter now I would be more proud not to have one, you are only mixing with the riff raff these days.  As for the Beckhams, boy are they getting a slating in the press, the comments are so spot on.  Amazing how many people have seen through them for years and just waiting for the bubble to burst.  All that united family front and him having affairs all over the place, plus the way he was scheming to get a knighthood, his language etc.  He does not deserve one, and never did.  He is a footballer, and not that good anyway, as many are saying.  What is so special and previousl about him  -  nothing, just paying a fortune for a pr company to fly the flag for them.  Cooked his own goose.  Annoys me they are now making out he is a "victim" of hacking.  Had he not sent emails bad mouthing and using disgusting language then the pr company behing hacked would have been of no consequence.  Brought about his own downfall, gormless twit.  If he had one decent brain cell he would be dangerous.

You know, during HM's Jubilee concert, it was a stage full of celebritized riff-raff, which is a perfect description of the RF. You know, I can't get over how Victoria wore black to the wedding, a major no no and looked so sour-faced.

People allow their kids to think that first you have to be famous, and THEN do you have ot start working hard. Hard work is the foundation for any kind of distinction and frankly being noticed is the name of the game before working.

As for celebrities behaving like trash, ain't that the truth.

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo confirms the birth of his twin boys via a surrogate mother

    Cristiano Ronaldo has welcomed the birth of twin boys via a surrogate mother
    The 32-year-old confirmed the news just hours after Portugal's defeat to Chile
    Ronaldo will return home from the Confederations Cup to meet his new sons
    He will now miss Portugal's third-place play-off against Germany or Mexico

Anyone any thoughts on this or Ronaldo? I don't follow football stars at all, but whenever I see a video of Ronaldo he just screams "gay" to me. In pics I can put him down as Beckham-like "meterosexual" *shudder*, but in videos he doesn't seem, let's say, masculine at all. I don't mind him using surrogates if he's gay and wants to be a young father, but with his alleged girlfriend being allegedly pregnant and him being supposedly straight it is odd to go about it this way, instead of finding a woman and settling down.


Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II

^I hope the children grow up healthy and happy and yes, I do think he's gay which is absolutely fine.

On the matter however, I have much to say and no place to say it because people frequently misunderstand my concerns so I hope I can unburden myself because it's a matter that really has me concerned, I'm full of doubts about this matter, I thank you if you chose to read this further and perhaps help me find answers...

I don't think I agree with surrogacy except for the cases in which you prove you can't have children any other way for health reasons and even then, I'm not enterily sure where I stand in this because it transforms women into mere incubators with absolute disregard about the dignity that should be inherent to human beings. It's all very right regarding our own reproductive rights and everybody should have the right to be a parent if they so choose it, but what about the rights of the children born from this, aren't we robbing them of their rights to have  a mother not just a progenitor? Also, people argue that if the women offer to be surrogates, all is fine, but is it really? I'm not sure it is...because there is some connection between a pregnant woman and her baby. Besides, isn't there any limit to what's ethical regarding science? I mean, now surrogates...what is going to be next step? Something close to the disgusting nazi ideology such as genetically choosing the features of our children so we create "the perfect" human being? I mean isn't there a limit? Are human beings another "good" to be bought and transactioned? What about several women in underdeveloped countries (such as India and Thailand)who accept being surrogates in exchange for shelter, food and a bit of medical care, can we really claim they're doing it out of their free will or are they being coerced into it, because they wouldn't have a decent chance at life any other way?  Is all acceptable and morally correct as long as there is Money to pay for it?  :dontknow:

I think that surrogacy is kind of disgusting since you're using another human as a brood mare. There are THOUSANDS of kids who don't have families that would LOVE to have parents, why not adopt and make things a lot easier?

If you can't find out how they make their money, they're going to be nothing but trouble. Shady knowledge means shady sources of money; it is your business if you get attached to someone and might marry them and I think the daughter didn't listen to that inner warning that he was bad news.


Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II
Post by: HRHOlya on July 13, 2017, 11:33:49 pm
^^ I meant to reply ages ago, but forgot!

Well, I think you write soundly about the ethical aspect of surrogacy and I have wondered the same at times. It can (as anything really) become very abusive towards women who have no money and then have to sell their bodies to finance basics. It can be dangerous territory, but that applies to many a thing in life, from medicine, to technology, science in general, trade... It all brings blessings and curses.

I see it as a blessing. Yes, adoption is always there, but if we are honest most people desire for a biological child and that's simply something primal that's ingrained into us. It is so we "live on", leave a "legacy" and spread our genes. And I welcome possibilities that allow people to make their dreams come true to overcome infertility (just as I see adoption as a wonderful thing btw, but in many countries the road to adoption is stonier than escaping to the US or wherever and pay a woman off to carry a kid for you; adoption needs a major overhaul to become easier. A woman I know wanted to adopt and the state was so difficult that it became impossible and they stopped the process, even though they are a loving & financially settled couple and there are plenty kids starved of a good home & love in orphanages).

Also gay couples or single people. The nuclear family is imo without a shadow of a doubt the best way, but it doesn't work out that way always and when not meeting the right partner in time then I see no problem with doing it single-handedly, like Monica Cruz for example.
I have zero objections with Ronaldo going this way, as posted earlier, if he's gay and wants to be a young father. And he totally sets off my gaydar. The whole thing is just so bloody weird. Now his "girlfriend" seems to be pregnant and it's all so jumbled and weird as heck. Why deprive his 3 kids a mother if he's hetero and young, there's still plenty of time to settle down. Instead they tell the boy some confusing stuff like "you have two mothers", "your mother is dead" and whatnot. Disturbing, weird and damaging to the kid(s). And supposedly his gf used to be a nanny to twins, don't know if true, but kind of fits into the whole weirdly disturbing circus.

Some also writing how he's under the thumb of his mother (and sister to an extent) and procreating this way to fulfill her "granny wish", which doesn't make it any better.

If you're gay and want to be a young parent or single hetero and older and don't think you're going to meet the right person in time, then I'm totally on board with surrogacy. But doing it to "preserve" your hot body (like some h'weird doctor claims that many celeb women do surrogacy to not "damage" their bodies and pretend to be pregnant, and Beyonce is guilty as hell of this, except the twins she seems to have carried after the disaster with Blue and guess what, after Blue she was back in a month or 2 for some sexy shoot, with the twins she's hidden away. Amal Clooney I bet everything on has also used a surrogate, she was just too damn skinny throughout and after rumours started she disappeared out of the spotlight) or do it because you're bored or whatever the heck it is, is wrong. Children should ideally have a father and mother, or at least two parents.

Proving that you need surrogacy for health reasons isn't too bad an idea, but might be too restrictive still for some people who'd need it to become bio parents. It sure is a mine field in terms of ethics and there aren't many right (or wrong) answers I'm afraid.

^ Sadly though KF many people abuse others as a brood mare (or stallion) even the natural way. Many women getting pregnant deliberately for all the wrong reasons and men too impregnating women for all the wrong reasons and since we're here on a royal forum I'll just mention the Windsors and Charles & Diana...

    The Marchesa designer, who has a son, 4, and daughter, 7, with Weinstein did not comment on the bombshell investigation as she headed off to her atelier
    She remained silent on Thursday as well, choosing instead to post photos of her bridal collection

EXCLUSIVE: My wife and children 'are standing by me' claims Harvey Weinstein as he battles revelations of sexual harassment - and admits he has to 'earn the forgiveness' of Ashley Judd

    Harvey Weinstein has revealed his wife is standing by him after news broke that he sexually harassed female employees and movie stars
    In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com he expressed profound regret for inappropriate behavior towards women stretching back decades
    He allegedly made a number of female employees massage him in his hotel room while he was naked, revealed a New York Times investigation
    The studio head, 62, reached a settlement with Rose McGowan in 1997 for $100,000, one of at least eight he has paid out over the years
    Weinstein also invited Ashley Judd to his hotel room for a meeting and then asked if she would watch him shower
    The film mogul said he wants to 'earn the forgiveness' of actress Judd who accused him of repeatedly making indecent proposals to her 20 years ago
    He is married to designer Georgina Chapman and the couple has two young children, with Weinstein also having three adult girls from his first marriage  
    The Oscar-winning producer said he would be taking a leave of absence to 'conquer his demons' and also apologized for his behavior in an official statement
    Weinstein is now suing the New York Times for $50 million, saying that they didn't check all their claims with him; he's hired the lawyer who won Hulk Hogan's sex tape case against Gawker

    Ashley Judd posed for a photo with Harvey Weinstein and Vince Vaughn at a 1997 Oscars party, just months after he sexually harassed her at his hotel
    The actress appeared terrified and was loosely gripping Weinstein's hand, which she held out in front of her while leaning away from the studio head
    Weinstein was with his first wife Eve Chilton that night, celebrating the nine Oscars won by his film 'The English Patient'
    It was just a few months before this photo that an incident occurred between Weinstein and Rose McGowan at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival
    Judd told the New York Times that Weinstein asked her for a massage and later to watch him shower at his Beverly Hills Hotel in 1996
    Weinstein has apologized while denying some of Judd's claims, and is using this same photo to show how close the two remained after the incident

The Clintons & Obamas and the rest of them won't turn on Weinstein, he gave them millions, only when it's too big to avoid will they say sth and then only because they have to, to save their own skin, whilst we all know they are all as dirty as each other.  :ick:

If these people wanted to bring Weinstein down the proper way they wouldn’t be speaking out to the media.  Now, their testimony can’t be used in a court of law.  Stupid or getting attention are the only two options for this.

Did Tina Fey know? Joke from a 2012 episode of 30 Rock alluded to Harvey Weinstein taking advantage of actresses

    Joke featured in a season six episode of the NBC show that aired back in 2012
    Jane Krakowski's character was speaking out about how she wasn't afraid of anyone in show business and mentioned Harvey Weinstein by name
    She said she had turned down sex with the movie mogul on three occasions
    The show also joked about Bill Cosby back in 2009 regarding sex assault allegations leveled against him
    Social media users were quick to point out 30 Rock's prior jokes after his long record of misconduct was revealed last week

Matt Damon called 'spineless profiteer who stays silent' by Harvey Weinstein victim Rose McGowan after it is revealed he and Russell Crowe helped kill a story about mogul's harassment

    The Wrap founder Sharon Waxman says Matt Damon and Russell Crowe called her in 2004 to stop a negative story about Harvey Weinstein
    At the time, Waxman was working for the New York Times and had been given the green light to investigate claims about the exec's inappropriate behavior
    She says she found proof that Weinstein sexually harassed at least one woman, who then got a payout
    Multiple sources told her that a man hired by Weinstein's former Miramax company had been put on the payroll to procure women for him
    Waxman says Damon and Crowe called her to vouch for that man, Fabrizio Lombardo, and eventually the story was killed
    Weinsten victim Rose McGowan responded to this by tweeting: 'Hey @Mattdamon what’s it like to be a spineless profiteer who stays silent?'

Apparently, according to some blind gossip/item sites, his wife knew about these incidents but did nothing as all the contacts that HW had, would help her in her career. And they did help her career.

Apparently, according to these websites, HW would have sex with Gretchen Moll, and she'd be forced to have sex with HW's associates in return for her just being able to read a script. Even when she was married. Nothing about getting an acting part in it. Just a chance to read the script.

I just hope this slows down their constant moral outrage over everything.  They lost a lot of credibility with this.  No late night mention of this guy tells me a lot.  I wonder when HRC is going to step up and explain the huge Weinstein money to her campaign and the DNC.  For over 10 years.   It's already too late, really.

The FBI has opened an investigation into Harvey Weinstein, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned.

DailyMail.com understands the move came at the behest of the Department of Justice, run by Donald Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which instructed the bureau to investigate the mounting allegations leveled at the movie mogul.

Sounds like it’s a fast move to keep him in USA.  And, hopefully, start filing charges.  The FBI surprises me, though.  Must be an int’l incident.

So, no more "rehab clinic in Europe"? Good. Glad they're onto him and that he can't leave the country. Him going to "rehab" could well have been an escape plan to Europe. And "everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a 2nd chance", this is hardly a "mistake" the b*stard did over decades and it wasn't his 1st time either. What a foul being.

In yet other news, I know when celebs are "bankrupt" they rarely really are, usually they have money stashed away in tax havens. But could someone explain to me how apparently Boris Becker can be broke, and so broke that his house in London might supposedly get repossessed??

Post by: YooperModerator on October 12, 2017, 02:42:57 pm
^Re Becker and assorted other celebs going bankrupt it's always Divorce, Drugs, or being a Doofus.  Or all three.  Every time.

One thing I can say with a whole lot of confidence is that by the time of the Academy Awards, Weinstein will be the redemption poster boy in HW and all will be forgiven.  Polanski received an award while out of the country and got a standing ovation when his name was called after all.  They only care about their PR and this has hit a lot of really important faces in the eye so forgiving will make them feel (and appear) even more morally superior.  They're better people than we are as they always remind us.  It's a nasty world they live in, truly.

This question may dog a lot of them, though:  Why didn't anybody stop him for almost three decades?  The answer is simple.  Desperation for career (includes political) enhancement at all costs.  They share complicity in what happened here.  For as awful as this SOB is, I have yet to hear that he held a gun to anybody's head to do any of these things.  Even that slimy DA didn't press charges when given clear evidence and then received money for his campaign from Weinstein.

But, it doesn't matter.  He'll be fine and super sorry and the whole Hollywood army will come out in full force to defend these victims, they'll make a big deal out of how they support fair work practices and nothing will actually be done nor changed.

Harvey Weinstein now being investigated by Scotland Yard over London sex assault claim

Claims that the shamed Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually abused an actress in London are being investigated by Scotland Yard, it emerged on Thursday.

The Metropolitan Police has launched an investigation into the claims, made by a woman understood to be now living in the Liverpool area.

The alleged assault took place in London during the 1980s and is the first to be reported to police in this country since claims emerged last week that Weinstein sexually assaulted and harassed a string of Hollywood actresses.

It cames as the British actress Kate Beckinsale said Weinstein tried to ply her with drink when she was just 17.

In a statement Scotland Yard said: “The Met have been passed an allegation of sexual assault by Merseyside Police today, Wednesday 11 October. The allegation will be assessed by officers from Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command.”

Merseyside police added: “We can confirm a report was received at 8.40am on Wednesday of an alleged sexual assault in the London area in the 1980s. The report has been referred to the Metropolitan Police.”

It is not yet known whether the woman was working on one of Weinstein’s film during the period the alleged assault took place.


The latest development in what is one of the biggest scandals in the history of Hollywood came as Weinstein took a private jet to Arizona to seek therapy for what he described as a sex addiction, telling paparazzi as he left: "I've got to get help".

The 65-year-old flew out of Los Angeles on Wednesday evening.

Earlier that day his 22-year-old daughter, Remy, called 911 and told police that her father was emotionally vulnerable, sources told gossip website TMZ.

When the police arrived, at around 10:30am, Miss Weinstein told the police it was a family dispute.

As he left for the airport, Weinstein was asked by paparazzi how he was.

"I'm hanging on in there," he replied.

"I'm not doing OK, but I'm trying. I've got to get help. You know what - we all make mistakes. Second chance, OK?"

^Yes, per our news in US violent physical attack is definitely on the table. 

My understanding is that the FBI are going after procurement charges.  Iow, he transfered money to a source outside the US to have women ready and “offers”.   Formal charges have not been released, tho, to my knowledge.  While he’s in rehab, they can’t serve him.

Harvey Weinstein banks another $1.65m toward his legal fund: 'Sex abuser' movie mogul sold his lavish Connecticut mansion days before scandal broke - and left him facing a potentially ruinous legal battle

    The movie tycoon and founder of Miramax recently unloaded his four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in the picturesque suburb of Westport for $1.65 million after putting it on the market in April
    Weinstein has owned the property since 1995, when he bought it for $825,000
    He was fired from his company on Sunday and on Tuesday his wife announced she is leaving him
    Legal experts even said Weinstein, who has a reported net worth of $130 million, could face criminal liability over his alleged behavior

'He's an actual PREDATOR': Emma Thompson calls out Harvey Weinstein and says she 'spent her twenties trying to get old men's tongues out of her mouth' as she details rampant sexual harassment in film industry

    Emma Thompson called Harvey Weinstein a 'predator' and said his actions were 'criminal' in an interview on Thursday
    The Oscar winner said that behavior like Weinstein's is 'endemic to the system,' and something she has experienced with 'many' other men
    As Weinstein arrived at rehab in Arizona, Thompson mocked the idea he was a 'sex addict' and said he was a criminal

Emma Thompson says she had no idea that Harvey Weinstein had been sexually harassing and assaulting young stars over the past three decades, but the actress and Oscar-winning screenwriter is not surprised she told BBC News.

The British star, 58, said that behavior like Weinstein's is 'endemic to the system,' and something she has experienced with 'many' other men in similar positions over the years.

She also dismissed the idea that Weinstein's behavior was the result of addiction.

'I don't think you can describe him as a sex addict. He's a predator,' said Thompson.

'He's an actual predator, he's dangerous and what he's done and what he's doing is criminal.'

'What I find sort of extraordinary is that this man is at the top of a very particular iceberg... (At) the top of the ladder of is a system of harassment, and belittling, and bullying, and interference, and what my mother would have referred to in the old days as 'pestering.''

EXCLUSIVE: Is Harvey Weinstein BROKE? Movie mogul borrowed $4 million from crisis loan firm - and slashed $1 million from Hamptons estate price then sold his mom's house for $600,000 discount

    Harvey Weinstein's personal finances may be far more shaky than had been thought
    DailyMail.com finds evidence he took out an $4 million mortgage from a crisis loan company on his Greenwich Village townhouse earlier this year
    He turned to crisis loan company for the cash advance despite having a $6 million mortgage already on home worth estimated $12.5 million
    His total personal mortgage borrowings are now at least $15.5 million, which at the average mortgage rate would cost him $71,000 a month
    Weinstein is also hawking his most valuable property, an estate in the Hamptons which he and wife Georgina Chapman bought in 2012, slashing the price from $13.5 million to $12.8 million
    And he sold his mother's home in Westport, Connecticut, for $1.65 million just two days before the story of his sex shame broke - having cut the price by $600,000 to seal a deal

Harvey Weinstein faces possible r*pe and assault charges as NYPD launches investigation into college student's claim that he forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004

KIWI model Zoë Brock was 23 when she met Harvey Weinstein. Her account of what happened next is absolutely staggering.

“It’s Zoe. Sorry to wake you but…”

“Don’t tell me. You’ve been Weinsteined?”

“How the f… ?”

“I was trying to warn you all night.” He said. “He does this to everyone. How do you think girls get parts in his movies?”

He went on to list a slew of female actors who he suggested had slept with Weinstein to get roles. He even mentioned an Oscar winning role and suggested that the lead actor had to spread her legs to get it. He told me that everyone in Hollywood knew and no one did anything to stop it.

“I missed it. I’m so stupid.”

“Do not go to sleep,” he warned. “Harvey doesn’t sleep. He will be back.”

'It's TRUE': Felicity Huffman confirms that Harvey Weinstein threatened her career if she refused to wear his wife Georgina's Marchesa designs on the red carpet

    Huffman confirmed Thursday that reports Weinstein threatened to stop financial support of her 2005 film Transamerica if she didn't wear Marchesa are 'true'
    The now-54-year-old obliged his demands by wearing Marchesa to numerous red carpet events, including her film's screening and the 2006 Golden Globes
    Georgina Chapman, 41, launched Marchesa in 2004, the year she met Weinstein
    She has always faced accusations her success was because of his connections
    On Monday, reports emerged that he threatened to sabotage the careers of A-list stars, including Huffman's, if they didn't wear his wife's fashion label


Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4978634/Felicity-Huffman-forced-wear-Marchesa.html

I have to say one thing, in all this tragedy and disgusting unravelling, at least Marchesa had (has..?) some really gorgeous designs. Not all, but so many.
Georgina knew about Harvey, I guess they exploited each other, and I don't know too much about her, but if she's somewhat decent (and her partner in the Marchesa business), then I hope that their brand won't suffer too much. So far Marchesa has been blacklisted by some stylists and fashion directors.
But we know from the examples of Kate Moss, John Galliano and so many more, that they usually come out on top, even when it's so often undeserved.

    Clinton was apparently referring to the tape leaked during the campaign where Donald Trump was heard boasting about 'grabbing women by the p****y'
    In fact he has never 'admitted' a sexual assault and apologized for 'locker room talk'
    She told the BBC's Andrew Marr: 'I really commend the women who have been willing to step forward now and tell their stories'
    In another interview with Channel 4 she said her campaign would hand back donations from Weinstein but had still to do so
    That changed her first claim that she would give from her personal income - which would have earned her a tax break

Kimmel is a pig as the others, in a boat with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (HW's "proteges"!), so no wonder he won't speak against HW.

Jimmy Fallon not talking about politics is technically very good, as everyone and their dog is sick to their backteeth of "Trump jokes" and political talk. No one wants to be bombarded with that shyte in everything you switch on: talk shows, films, TV shows etc etc.
On the other hand Fallon just recently had satan herself on his show (Hillary RC) and couldn't stop licking her backside. So not really "not talking about politics"..

BREAKING NEWS: Oscars board revokes Harvey's lifetime membership over sexual harassment scandal meanwhile Woody Allen actress alleges Weinstein R*PED her at her London home as Scotland Yard investigates

    English actress, Lysette Anthony, 54, claims Harvey Weinstein r*ped her in the 80s at her home in London in an interview released Saturday
    Last week Scotland Yard said they were investigating an incident without naming the actress
    In a new interview, the actress of Woody Allen's 'Husband and Wives' says the alleged attack was 'revolting' and left her 'disgusted and embarrassed'
    Also on Saturday the board of governors voted to oust Weinstein during an emergency meeting
    They said the 'era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over'
    Weinstein won a personal Oscar for Best Picture in 1999 for Shakespeare in Love
    It is not yet clear whether the Academy will rescind that award

Hillary is so power hungry she stays with the cheater and she wants to get into the White House again and so does he. She trashed the women and ignores in her recent book that it was not only Monica he cheated with. She is not accepting that she lost and blames everybody else but herself.

Talent manager sent "fat f****** pig" Harvey Weinstein a trough filled with Diet Coke after he asked her what he had to do to get her client Aishwarya Rai alone with him

    Simone Sheffield was representing Aishwarya Rai in the early 2000s
    She had a meeting with the star and Weinstein to discuss her film Bride and Prejudice which Miramax acquired to distribute in the US
    She claims Weinstein asked her repeatedly to leave the room so that he could be alone with Aishwarya Rai
    Sheffield says she refused repeatedly so the star was '100 percent protected'
    Later, she said Weinstein asked her what he had to do to get Rai alone
    Sheffield claims she later sent the pig trough to his office in a jibe about his weight
    She alleges that he 'missed the irony' and thanked her for the gesture

Obama is made out by the media to be a greater president than Bush Jr, even though Obama's warmongering and overall death toll is higher than Bush's! And Bush is made out to be the terrible president for his war games and death toll! Unbelievable. (For the record, I'm not a Bush fan or defender, it's just the facts are out there and people choose to ignore them). Obama was overall for much longer at war than any other president. And with death toll I mean all deaths, soldiers and civilians, not just US soldiers.
This is proof and really incredible how media can skew people's perception and make them h*te or love someone, even though the facts tell a whole different story.

Which is why it's a great possibility that HW will be back and celebrated and said to be "reformed" in due time, as YM keeps saying. I fully expect that and would be surprised if they "buried" and ruined him and didn't let him crawl back to the red carpets.

I think you're right about HW being rehabilitated by Hollywood. After all, alleged paedophile Polanski has been. A listers still work with him. Harrison Ford comes to mind.

And Woody Allen, accused of molesting his daughter, Dylan, has also been rehabilitated. They even gave him a standing ovation. And he's supporting HW.

Dylan is the daughter of Mia Farrow, Allen's longtime partner and WA was therefore the defacto father of Dylan. Plus he went on to marry Dylan's sister, Soon-yi. And adopt children with his wife.

Sick perverted human beings. The lot of them. (Not Harrison Ford though).

     Kate Winslet refused to thank Harvey Weinstein in her 2009 Oscar acceptance speech — even though he claimed credit for the win
    The 42-year-old was instructed to praise the disgraced producer after picking up the Best Actress Academy Award for The Reader
    But she deliberately omitted his name while thanking 19 other people who had helped her get there
    The actress recalled in a recent interview being told 'Make sure you thank Harvey if you win' but she refused
    Despite the film's success, The Reader was the last time she ever worked with Weinstein
    She also claimed that while she was never sexually harassed by him, there was a whole 'other can of worms' regarding his behavior on the set of The Reader that she did not want to discuss
     In the same interview Kate revealed Weinstein constantly reminded her that he gave her her start in her first film — 1994's Heavenly Creatures — and even claimed credit for her Oscar

Post by: HRHOlya on October 16, 2017, 03:01:38 pm
^ There will always be deniers. I fully believe Kaya Jones's claims about what the Pussycat Dolls actually did. Eg the Weinstein scandal, there are some very well known actresses where everyone knows how they got their Oscars & prominent film roles (namely they hooked up with HW), and yet they deny that, saying how "they heard rumours" or "didn't know" / "just found out" and "were lucky to not have experienced that [with HW]" but they "applaud the women who come forward, they are so brave and we must stand together and end this!".

Many models and singers are also known for what else they, but they'll never admit or circumvent it with carefully crafted statements by ther PRs like the above tidbits. Not saying the statements are total bs, because I'd imagine they do want to end this, but it hurts their professional credibility along the way and they don't want to be known to have won an Oscar because HW pulled some strings because they spread their legs.

Others will no doubt also find it to painful to come out and say the truth, like most sexual assault/ r*pe victims do. Much is in play for why or why they don't say the truth or deny. What I find worthy and commendable in all this, is that the lid blew much further apart than I thought and other women from other industries are speaking out, like Kaya Jones as singer and Jazz Egger as model.

There was an article in the dm some months ago, about a woman who is at the helm of a very prestigious and well known modelling agency, though she acts as madam and sells the models for sex to clients, I can't find it now, no idea whether it was maybe completely deleted, if I do find it I'll post it (or some of you do, please post it!).

Just look at Terry Richardson, he's kind of the HW equivalent in the modelling/ photographer business, and he's a vile scumbag who deserves to be hanged along with HW and his assistant. And yet, he's still a successful modelling photographer, with even a partner/ wife (?) who gave birth to twins! And she's disgusting too, 1. for being with that vile freak and 2. for the macabre pics she does with TR. You can't be with a well known scumbag if you're not one yourself.

I feel sorry for what happened to Kesha, and the lack of support she got spoke volumes. I'm glad she won in the end.

Post by: Joanna on October 16, 2017, 03:53:30 pm
^ I agree with you. Richardson is a disgusting individual. The music industry is full of abuse as well. Jimmy Page for instance kidnaped and raped a teenager and he wasn't even tried for that. Another that is both a musician and Academy Award Winner, Jared Leto, also generates a lot of rumours which don't portray him in a good light, while I'm not sure if he *violent physical attack*/abuses his fellow actresses, he's rumored to engage in BDSM sexual behaviour with teenage girls and young women and according to rumours what starts as consensual becomes non-consensual, he's also pals with Richardson. You know the saying, show me your friends, I'll tell you who you are.

^^^About what Kate Winslet said, I can see what she meant to do but at the same time, she spoke ravishingly about Woody Allen, Roman Polanski known child molesters and about Michael Fassbender who also reached a settlement with an ex-girlfriend who's rumoured to have suffered at his hands. Hippocrisy, much?

He's said to choose young women, often still teenaged girls, at his shows and get them backstage, which excites them to no end, and then use them sexually often against their will. Heard about BDSM as well. We basically rely the same thing, but yeah.. *shudders* Just look what's come out about Jim Carrey and the guy was recently on a red carpet all smiles.  :ick: :ick: :ick: So true is so so many cases the "show me your friends, I'll tell you who you are".

Predatory loan: Harvey Weinstein helped pay Bill Clinton's legal bills after he was forced to settle sexual harassment suit for $850K when he lied about Monica Lewinsky affair

    Harvey Weinstein donated the maximum amount of $10K to Bill Clinton's legal defense fund during his Monica Lewinsky scandal
    Clinton was 49 when he had an affair with his young interview Lewinsky, who was just 22 and working in the White House
    He denied having a sexual relationship with Lewinsky while giving a deposition in the sexual harassment case filed against him by Paula Jones   
    Clinton ultimately used $850K of his $2.2 million defense fund to settle the lawsuit brought against him by Jones 
    Weinstein got incredible access to the First Family as a result, with Hillary attending a screening of his film 'Shakespeare in Love' in December 2008
    The Clintons were also silent about their allegations against Weinstein while Hillary and Chelsea made no public support of the victims for almost a week

    She ultimately decided to leave the industry after the incident and quit her job with Weinstein's manager
    'I didn't think anyone would believe me. I was nobody. Why would they believe me?' said Kerr

Let’s see now.  The next step for Weinstein will be an enormous contribution to syart an awareness campaihn in Hollywood for sexual impropriety in the industry.  The monies will be distributed in a cloudy, indiscernible fashion but he will be lauded for his efforts by everyone needing something be it political hackery or a sublime part. 

With any luck, somebody’s relative at Scotland Yard wants to “break into show business”.  Ayup.

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: British QC backs Amal Clooney for a seat in the House of Lords
Quote
For I can reveal that leading British barrister Helena Kennedy QC, a founding member of Doughty Street Chambers where Amal works in London, is championing George Clooney’s 39-year-old wife to be elevated to the House of Lords. ‘Amal would be a great baroness,’ claims Kennedy, who after being made a Labour peer in 1997 is now titled Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws.

Harvey Weinstein assistant paid $150K in 1998 breaks her NDA to reveal he regularly paraded around hotels naked and made her sit by the tub during his baths - but she did not have courage to complain until he 'raped her colleague'

    Zelda Perkins was just 24 when she and another employee of Miramax split a settlement of around $300,000 (£250,000)
    She signed an NDA in October of 1998 after receiving the payout, but is now breaking that contract to detail her time with Weinstein
    Perkins said Weinstein tried to give her a massage in his underwear, would often parade naked in the hotel and made her side by the tub when he bathed
    She finally sought legal counsel after her colleague with whom she split the settlement told her that Weinstein had raped her at the 1998 Venice Film Festival
    'My driving motivation was to create safeguards to protect future employees,' explained Perkins
    Perkins was not allowed to keep a copy of her agreement of NDA after she signed it
    Her colleague is either the seventh woman to accuse Weinstein of violent physical attack of the unnamed woman profiled in The New Yorker expose

Exclusive: Terry Richardson banned from working with Vogue and other leading mags, leaked email shows
Terry Richardson, the fashion photographer, has been barred from working with some of the world’s bestselling magazines, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.

An email circulated within the media group Condé Nast International on Monday and seen by this newspaper announced that the company would no longer work with him.

Staff were told that any work already commissioned from Mr Richardson but not yet published should be “killed or substituted with other material”.
 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/10/23/exclusive-terry-richardson-banned-working-vogue-leading-mags/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Why has it taken so long for magazines to distance themselves from Terry Richardson?
Kate Upton in a bikini, pulling the bottoms down. A teenage, topless Daisy Lowe kissing her then-boyfriend. Miley Cyrus on a giant wrecking ball, naked but for a pair of Dr Martens. Since the 90s, the photographer Terry Richardson has been known for an almost soft-porn aesthetic, which includes nudity, innuendo and simulated sex acts. With estimated earnings of £44m in 2013, Richardson has photographed Barack Obama, taken pictures for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ, and directed pop videos for Beyoncé, as well as Cyrus. He even has a nickname – Uncle Terry.

Good. Excellent in fact. "Uncle Terry", makes me want to puke. Richardson is as notorious as Weinstein has been (before this publicly exploding confessions etc - same level of "worst kept open secret in the industry") and I am glad that at least one publisher is taking such a strong stance against this creepy abusive harasser (& possible r*pist), before the lid blows up publicly and only then people distance themselves from him, like with Weinstein.

I hope other companies and people follow suit to ostracize people like Richardson (& Weinstein) and mark a turn towards sth positive, a better, safer and fairer work environment.

"To see this as the death knell of Richardson’s career is probably overstating the power of Condé Nast. “People who have spoken out haven’t damaged his career,” says Franklin. “He has damaged his career … I categorically am not concerned with whether he can earn his next million.”" [from the Guardian article linked above]

I don't even care whether Conde Nast has the power to kill his career or not, I think this is a very strong action and does force others to follow suit and does have the potential to kill his career; and even if not, respect to Conde Nast for doing the right thing. Better late than never.

Supposedly the Weinstein affair sparked a new discussion on Richardson, even I named him here before during the Weinstein discussion, and I hope that instead of aimlessly "discussing" things, others follow up with actions like Conde Nast. These people can't hide behind the pathetic "we didn't know/ just found out", everyone knows, like with Weinstein. It's pathetic, embarrassing and disgusting to claim not knowing when everyone and their dog knows.

New Harvey Weinstein accuser sobs as she claims movie mogul 'ripped out her tampon and raped her' in his child's bedroom

A new woman has come forward claiming that she was raped by Harvey Weinstein.
Mimi Haleyi claims that she was visiting Weinstein at his New York City loft back in 2006 when the 65-year-old executive forced himself on her.
The young woman said she tried to shoot down Weinstein's repeated sexual advances by telling him she was menstruating, but he eventually overpowered her and shoved her onto a bed in his child's bedroom.
'He wouldn’t take no for an answer and backed me into a room which was not lit, but looked like a kids' bedroom with kids' drawings on the walls,' said Haleyi.
'He held me down on the bed, I tried to get him off me and kept asking him to stop but it was impossible. He was extremely persistent and physically overpowering.'
At that point Weinstein ripped out her tampon said Haleyi, who had begun to openly weep.
'He then orally forced himself on me while I was on my period. I was mortified. I was in disbelief,' said Haleyi, accompanied by her attorney Gloria Allred.
'I would not have wanted anyone to do that to me even if that person had been my romantic partner.'
She then added: 'I remember Harvey afterwards rolling over onto his back and saying "don’t you feel we’re so much closer to each other now?" I replied "no."
Weinstein was divorced from his first wife and in a relationship with Georgina Chapman at the time.

^^The volume is drowning people out and the news cycles are already shoving it off the front page.  What they need to do it stop talking and get serious with the law.

As for Weinstein, I'm really troubled by the fact that only two out of an endless parade of women have filed charges.  NY has no statute of limitations, so there is no viable reason that I can see for hiring Allred and hinting at civil damages.  

That allows for Team Weinstein to easily deny it and say that this is a drive for monetary gain and notoriety.  And that may be true in some cases, unfortunately, which gives him more leverage.  He and his lawyers only have to find just one to cast doubt on many legitimate cases but without a court document, it's nothing more than a juicy tabloid article.

This is very troubling.  Just file the dang papers.  If you're ok with sobbing in front of hundreds of cameras, you can talk to a prosecutor.  

I have always wondered why the women never charged Clinton, for instance.  I think one was a statute issue but not sure.  The other was a pay off, I believe.  Either way, he's the Master Sleeze and was actually impeached.  And yet?  Nothing really happened to him.  Not even to today.  People even make jokes about it, he's still yanking in huge money to speak and life is peachy keen. and I really expect the same will happen with Weinstein.  And the other wealthy and powerful criminals.

Former Miramax staff claim Harvey Weinstein sex allegations are “rancid tip of the iceberg”

A number of former Miramax employees have described an alleged atmosphere of “manipulation and fear” at the company during Harvey Weinstein‘s tenure, with one former executive remarking that “the sex allegations [against Weinstein] are the rancid tip of the iceberg at the company”.

The Hollywood producer – who has been accused in recent weeks of violent physical attack, sexual harassment and other forms of misconduct by numerous women (allegations he “unequivocally denies”) – founded Miramax with his brother Bob in 1979, before leaving in 2005 to start The Weinstein Company.

Three former Miramax employees have now come forward to offer their testimonies about Weinstein’s alleged behaviour while at the company.

Actress Natassia Malthe: 'Harvey Weinstein raped me in London hotel after Bafta awards ceremony'

Actress Natassia Malthe has alleged that Harvey Weinstein raped her in a London hotel after a 2008 Bafta awards ceremony, in the latest claim of sexual assault by the disgraced movie mogul.

Following dozens of allegations of sexual harassment and assault, the Norwegian-born actress and model told a press conference in New York that she felt pressured into telling Weinstein she was staying at the Sanderson Hotel after being put on the spot.

Malthe, now 43, said after her shift as a spokeswoman for an electronics firm on Feb 10 she went back to her room and went to sleep, but was awoken by "repeated pounding" on her door, from someone yelling: "Open the door Natassia Malthe, it's Harvey Weinstein."

Harvey Weinstein accuser Jessica Barth tells LAPD she was drugged and sexually assaulted by her talent agent David Guillod – five years after he threatened to sue her over the allegation

    Star from the 'Ted' franchise, Jessica Barth, accused talent agent David Guillod of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2012
    Guillod stepped down from his co-CEO position at Primary Wave Entertainment following Barth's claims 
    Barth says she reported the alleged incident to the LAPD at the time but dropped the case after Guillod threatened to sue her
    Thursday, she said she reopened her case against him, adding she didn't pursue it initially because she didn't have the financials for a legal battle

Kevin Spacey had 'incident' with crew member during House of Cards season ONE that was 'hidden' from creator by producers - five years before EIGHT staffers' harassment and assault claims

    Kevin Spacey was investigated after a crew member filed a complaint against him during filming of the first season of House of Cards in 2012
    Spacey ultimately went through a 'training process' following the 'specific remark and gesture' he made to upset the unidentified man
    Producers for the show and its studio Media Rights Capital opted not to tell show creator Beau Willimon about the incident however for unknown reasons
    He wrote on Monday: 'During the time I worked with Kevin Spacey on House of Cards, I neither witnessed nor was aware of any inappropriate behavior on set'
    Willimon was forced to reveal he never heard about the incident after many assumed his tweet was a lie following the statement from MRC
    Netflix released a confusing statement in response to MRC, saying: 'Netflix was just made aware of one incident, five years ago'

EXCLUSIVE: How Sylvester Stallone was accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old fan: Police report reveals girl claimed star made her give him and his bodyguard oral sex and threatened they would 'beat her head in' if she ever told

    Sylvester Stallone was accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old fan girl while he was filming Over the Top in Las Vegas in 1986, according to a police report obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com
    The actor, who was 40 years old at the time, met the teenager while he was filming at the former Las Vegas Hilton hotel and she was given keys to his room
    Stallone allegedly had sex with the girl, telling her she was 'very tight', before asking the minor if she had ever had sex with two men at the same time
    The girl claims Stallone's bodyguard Michael 'Mike' De Luca, who was in the bathroom until Stallone brought him out, 'forced' her to give him oral sex
    After performing oral sex on De Luca for some time, the teen claims he penetrated her while she was made to perform oral sex on Stallone
    The teen told police she became 'very uncomfortable' when De Luca joined in on the sexual encounter but said she felt she had 'no choice' in the matter
    Afterwards, the teen claims Stallone said she couldn't tell anyone because both men were married and if she said anything, 'they would have to beat her head in'
    Police said she decided not to press charges against the men because she was scared and humiliated
    If you have any information regarding Sylvester Stallone please contact alan.butterfield @dailymail.com

Quote
Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News on Wednesday after an employee filed a complaint about "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace," the network announced.

Savannah Guthrie made the announcement at the top of the "Today" show. Lauer has been the cornerstone of the program, one of the most profitable franchises on television, for two decades.

NBC News chairman Andrew Lack said in a memo to staff that it was the first complaint lodged against Lauer in his career at the network. But he said "we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident."

Lauer was informed of the network's decision late Tuesday night, before he went to bed, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Reporters for The New York Times and Variety had been investigating Lauer for several weeks, according to sources who had been contacted by the Times.

Lauer was not immediately reachable for comment by CNN. An NBC News spokeswoman declined to comment about the details of the allegation.

Lauer is the latest high-profile man in media to be brought down by allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior. Just last week, CBS News fired one of its own morning anchors, Charlie Rose, after a report in The Washington Post chronicled years of sexual misconduct.

The torrent began when The New York Times and The New Yorker reported on allegations against the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Since then, actors Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K. have been suspended or removed from projects after allegations against them became public. And other prominent journalists, including Mark Halperin of NBC and Michael Oreskes of NPR, have been fired or suspended from their jobs.

The firing of Lauer removes one of the most recognizable personalities on television, and at a time when morning news programs are increasingly important to network news divisions.

Guthrie said she was informed just moments before going on the air.

"This is a sad morning at 'Today' and NBC News," she said. "As I'm sure you can understand, we are devastated. I'm heartbroken for Matt."

Guthrie also said she was heartbroken for the woman who accused Lauer of misconduct, noting "it's long overdue" that women feel comfortable coming forward against abusive men.

Hoda Kotb, on the set with Guthrie, said she has known Lauer for years and "loved him as a friend and a colleague."
"It's hard to reconcile the man who walks in every day" with the person who was identified in the complaint, she said.
Lauer, 59, was named a co-anchor of "Today" in January 1997 after three years as the newsreader.
--CNNMoney's Jill Disis, David Goldman and Chris Isidore contributed to this report.

Anyway..
So, he got touchy feely, girls complained (good on them :thumbsup:) and now his arse got chucked on the street.
Legally speaking can he sue NBC for kicking him out before he's 'officially declared' guilty?
Isn't that breach of contract or something?

If she doesn't file for divorce within the next 6 months I would be very surprised. He's a mean, controlling bastard to her. They've lived separate lives since she filed for divorce the first time. She's in the Hamptons with the kids while he lives in Manhattan. I think the only reason they "reconciled" was because he didn't want to give her half his money or have the truth come out about his treatment of her.

All of these allegations and acts are truly horrible and need to be addressed.  It’s a human rights violation to the worst impulses within people.

But!  I am also highly concerned at the apparent dismissive reaction to a little thing called Due Process.  Every citizen in this country is entitled to due process in a court of law before being pronounced guilty in the court of public opinion.  I have yet to hear of one single verdict in court of illegal or any convictions applied to any of these people.  And it bothers me.

^The contract clause is most likely.  You cannot fire anybody in the US based on accusations.  You can be suspended until legal conviction only.  But, an indecency clause is a cya in many cases.  Plus, if the person admits it (foolish to do), that would allow them to fire without paying retirement or other benefits.  

Still, it’s dangerous in a democracy to completely ignore a person’s constitutional rights.  Then it becomes open season and witch hunts follow.

Harvey Weinstein violent physical attack case in limbo: Paz de la Huerta's lawyer says DA not pursuing charges despite solid NYPD evidence while office denies claim and says it is still an 'active investigation'

    The lawyer for actress Paz de la Huerta claims that the Manhattan District Attorney's Office will not present her violent physical attack case to the grand jury
    Carrie Goldberg said de la Huerta was interviewed twice and thousands of documents were subpoenaed by the DA's office
    Despite this, they are not looking to try Harvey Weinstein she told CNN
    The district attorney's office was quick to shoot this down however, stating: 'This remains very much an active investigation. We’ll decline further comment'
    A spokesperson for the DA who spoke with DailyMail.com further explained: 'The reports of it "stalling" are not accurate'

Time's 2017 Person of the Year is the "Silence Breakers." Trump is runner-up.

Time has chosen its 2017 Person of the Year: the Silence Breakers, the women and men who have come forward to shed light on sexual harassment and abuse in America.

The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal, made the announcement on NBC’s Today show on Wednesday, citing "the galvanizing actions of the women on our cover.” Those women featured on the cover include actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, former Uber engineer Susan Fowler, Visa lobbyist Adama Iwu, Mexican agricultural worker Isabel Pascual, and one woman whose face cannot be seen.

In a statement, Felsenthal also honored the courage of “hundreds of others, and of many men as well, [who] have unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s."

Corey Feldman WAS telling the truth: Santa Barbara police say they've found historic audio of him naming abusers which he claims they then covered up

    Just weeks after denying the existence of a record of claims Corey Feldman made in 1993, Santa Barbara Sheriff's Office says it has located the exact records
    Feldman said in October that more than two decades ago, he specifically identified to police a list of people involved in an alleged alleged pedophile ring
    The Sheriff's Office fully denied the claim stating, 'Our records do not indicate that he named any suspects'
    The police now claim they do in fact have audio recordings of Feldman's 1993 interview, which was conducted during its investigation of Michael Jackson
    Last month Feldman revealed the identities of two of his alleged child molesters - convicted sex offender Marty Weiss and his former assistant Jon Grissom

Salma Hayek reveals Harvey Weinstein endlessly stalked and propositioned her before forcing her to do a nude lesbian sex scene after she refused his advances - and once threatened to have her KILLED

    Salma Hayek is revealing that she was sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein for years, claiming she repeatedly turned down his advances
    After close to a decade of refusing his demands for showers, naked massages, oral sex and threesomes, Hayek claims Weinstein refused to let her star in Frida
    Weinstein even once appeared at the door of Hayek's hotel while she was working on a film for a rival studio
    When she managed to pull the film together on her own Weinstein demanded she do a nude sex scene to get the film released

'I burst out crying': 'Heartbroken' Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd respond to Peter Jackson's confirmation that Harvey Weinstein blacklisted them and stopped both from starring in Lord of the Rings because they rejected him

    Mira Sorvino tweeted in response to Jackson's admission earlier this week
    The actress previously claimed she was harassed by Weinstein in 1995
    In an interview in The New Yorker in October, she said he ruined her career because she rebuffed him
    Judd, in an interview with The New York Times, made similar accusations
    She claimed she was accosted by Weinstein in 1997 and then blacklisted because she rejected him
    Jackson wanted both women to be considered for Lord of the Rings in 1998
    He said Weinstein vetoed them both and told him they were difficult to work with
    Jackson took his advice but said this week that he believes he had been misled 
    The New Zealand director said Weinstein, 65, behaved like a 'Mafia boss' during the early stages of the production

I'd say this explains many a career death. And for men too. Should also at some point become public knowledge that men are abused in these industries just like women. Perhaps not quite as much and not in always the same ways, but men are victims too in these horrible "careers". And how many careers also went nowhere because some people are actors (singers and models) because they love it and refuse the circus, refuse to call the paps on themselves, to exchange jobs for sexual "favours" etc? Horrible careers, modelling, singing, acting....

You too, Franco? Star is accused of removing actresses' genital guards during nude oral sex scene and forcing his ex to perform a sex act - as FIVE women claim he sexually harassed them

    Five women are accusing James Franco of sexual misconduct in the Los Angeles Times, including four women who took acting classes with the Oscar nominee
    Sarah Tither-Kaplan claims a topless video of her made for Franco's class at Studio 4 was uploaded without her prior knowledge or consent
     She is also claiming that Franco removed the plastic genital guards that several actresses were wearing for a nude orgy scene in his film The Long Home
    Violet Paley, 23, claims she had a romantic relationship with Franco in 2016, during which time the actor forced her to perform oral sex on him in his car
    Hilary Dusome and Natalie Chmiel said Franco stormed off the set of a video he was shooting at a strip club when they would not remove their tops
    Franco denied all these claims through his lawyer, and on Monday called the claims 'not accurate'

I just cannot believe the stupid media, acting all shocked about the allegations on Franco, when it's well known he goes after teenagers, which was a big story in this very same media a couple of years ago.
The sickening idiotic pin at the Golden Globes and dressing all in black means shyte all. Predators like Franco attended (and won) and they held sanctimonious speeches (Oprah, Streep) continuing to pretend like they didn't hear, see or know anything. And those who dared to not dress in all black were raked over hot coals. What a disgusting bunch of brown-nosing know-it-all preachers.

'I want my pin back': Scarlett Johansson calls out James Franco during her Women's March speech after Golden Globe winner was accused of sexual misconduct by five different women

    Scarlett Johansson gave a speech on Saturday at the 2018 Women's March in LA
    She called out James Franco for wearing a Time's Up pin at the Golden Globes
    Five women accused Franco of sexual misconduct after he wore the pin on stage
    Franco has since denied the allegations, and says he still supports the cause


Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5293653/Scarlett-Johansson-calls-James-Franco-Womens-March.html

Oh please, everyone with one single brain cell knew the pin and "Time's Up campaign" are useless. We all know that H'weird is still chock full with predators and that nothing's happened and won't happen, that would require actual action and change (eg denounce and fire and never hire these people again. Not happening, see Woody Allen and James Franco, Franco's poaching of a minor or was it teen was well publicized a couple of years ago and nothing happened. Come on!).

And any woman who dared not to be dressed in black at the G Globes, likely because she had brains and knew this meant shyte all, was heavily citicized. I bet many women wore black just to avoid heavy backlash, knowing full well what a joke Hollywood and its campaigns are.

^ It's "Chicago", nickname's "Chi". Yeah, good on them for being honest about the surrogate, as opposed to many others (just the other day there was an article on Beyonce and how she orchestrates literally everything, I guess that was also a dig at her pregnancies and the surrogacy claims - the pregnancies were certainly covered and the circus B made of them in that article). But Kim lied so much about her previous pregnancy/ies, it was a joke. A set-up to use a surrogate in the future and minimize backlash. I mean eg the claim that she had placenta residue and only weeks or months later was it found out and the doc "scraped it out with his fingernails", whoever believes this wad of bs is really intelectually challenged. Placenta residue causes life threatening complications within the hour/s of giving birth and special equipment is needed to get it out, not weeks or months and certainly not the doc's dirty fingernails as tool! If Kim's claims at the time were true, she'd be literally dead. I get that celebs lie, but lying this much is beyond belief, and the dimwitted still follow and admire these people! smh.
Don't understand why these people have to burden their kids with ridiculous names either.

I'd love to know who was on H Weinstein's list too. But we can all guess and I think we'd get a good deal of names right...

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux wedding pictures: Inside the doomed fairytale day which ended in divorce - Mirror Online

With just a handful of guests, a smattering of confetti and an underground performer - Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's 2015 wedding was the understated Hollywood day of dreams.

After being engaged for a whopping three years, the world had given up on the heavyweight actors ever tying the knot. And, the news the pair got married at their Bel Air home was met with happiness by their fans - who thought "unlucky in love" Jen had finally got her fairytale ending.
https://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/jennifer-aniston-justin-theroux-wedding-12037290





(CNN)Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have revealed they have been separated since late last year, according to a joint statement.

The couple, who wed in 2015, said they intended to keep their decision private, but "given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly."

"This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year," the statement read. "We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship."

^ I'm surprised by these news, the gossip was for ages that they were headed towards seperation/ divorce, but I didn't believe it (the press loves to make Jen look "sad" and "unlucky in love", all and just because of "Brangelina" :ick:). Jen's looked very well in the past weeks, so I guess she incited the split/ is taking it well?
Read many comments that he has a roving eye....  :thumbsdown:

I hope she finds happiness, whatever that means for her. She's written some good open letters in the past on childlessness, happiness, womanhood, marriage etc. (mostly in relation and as answer to the ugly and disrespectful headlines and rumours she gets).

I didn't even believe they'd ever marry after such a long engagement. I think that long engagements are hints that the marriage won't work out eventually.

I read also references to Blind Items (cazydayandnights specifically) and that those reading them were not at all surprised by the split, anyone know what the Blinds were? I don't really follow Blinds, but I think I should...

    Andrews alleged that on the way home, he dragged her with his car, resulting in a twisted ankle, blown out knee cap and a ruptured ovarian cyst
    The 44-year-old wrote in her petition: 'I am still recovering from my injuries and am afraid for my safety'
    She also alleged that Fassbender broke her nose in July 2009, when she tried to wake him up for a speaking event

i've always found she better suited with justin than brad (with/out jolie they'll have end up divorce IMO)

BTW interesting look through astrology:

Jennifer Aniston – lasting love still elusive


Jennifer Aniston has ‘lovingly’ separated from her actor husband of two years Justin Theroux, swearing they’ll have a ‘cherished friendship’ ahead. Another fan fairy-tale blown apart. According to reports she didn’t share his upmarket-hippy New York lifestyle, preferring to live in hotels or LA.

Born 11 February 1969 10.22pm Los Angeles, she doesn’t have the easiest chart, despite her ditzy-blonde, girlish demeanour. Her Aquarius Sun is in a showbizzy and argumentative and stubborn square to Mars Neptune in Scorpio; and is also on one leg of a Yod in sextile to Saturn in forced-to-be-self-reliant Aries inconjunct Pluto. The latter will make her fairly Plutonic – extreme views, not flexible, inclined to manipulate. Her Venus in Aries in her hard-working 6th house is in an unpredictable and constantly-changing opposition to Uranus Jupiter in Libra. Her outspoken Sagittarius Moon is in a possessive square to Pluto and a cool trine to Saturn. She’ll tend to confuse partners with her contradictory demands.

On the face of it, there was a match to be made since she’s an Air Sun with a Fire Moon and Venus; while he has a Fire Sun and Venus in Leo and a Fire Aries Moon. But both are fairly Fixed, and Martian (combative) and not overly practical.

Their relationship chart isn’t too encouraging with a composite Sun Saturn, good for work but not so much for an emotional connection; the Sun is trine Pluto and Saturn trines Mars – so there would be a fair amount of pushing and pulling for control as well as aggravations which grew into resentments. The composite Sun is also widely opposition Neptune, so a dream and an illusion that can’t cope with reality; the composite Venus is trine Uranus, adventurous but needs space; and a Mars square Uranus is explosive since neither wishes to compromise on what they want. The composite Moon may square Saturn which again is blocked and cool. So not a lot going for it.

She has had tr Uranus square her Sun/Moon midpoint in 2017 which is often a marriage splitter and tr Uranus now into her 7th house of relationships for several years ahead, which will find her searching for a looser, less conventional relationship. She’s also got tr Saturn square her Uranus Jupiter and Venus this year, plus a dreary tr Pluto square her Yod focal point Saturn in 2018/2019, all of which is downbeat and discouraging. Plus her Progressed Moon going through her 12th for another 18 months which is usually inward-looking and not exactly ecstatic.

Her admirers want her back with Brad Pitt, but that relationship was, if anything worse. Her Saturn squares his Moon Venus in Capricorn; and his Saturn is conjunct her Sun and square her Mars – and that’s blocked every which way on an emotional level. Her Sagittarius Moon admittedly is conjunct his Sun which is good, but that’s about all it has going for it. Their relationship chart has a composite Sun trine a constantly-changing Uranus Pluto, sextile Neptune; with Saturn opposition Uranus Pluto and trine Neptune – constantly on edge and disappointing; and an aggravating, unfair-treatment Mars square Saturn. The composite Moon and Venus are sparsely aspected with only links to Jupiter, which would give a superficial gloss but not enough to overcome the other problems.

Behind the Hollywood gloss and glitter, nothing is much the way it seems.

I'm somewhat put off by writers putting down Jennifer and asking why she can't "sustain" relationships. Well it does take two. Justin messed up too. As did Brad who left Jennifer for someone whose background had a lot of red flags. Angelina cannot stay with anybody forever. To put it mildly.

the ex-husbands of angelina never said anything bad about her. brad and jen obviously were unsuited. it's well known brad longed for children in his last years with jennifer... well she didnt want - i dont think it says anything against her ... as i said at kate and william thread, if a woman wants gets pregnant she in all likelihood will get, just a woman can stops herself to get pregnant ... already a man who longs for children with a woman who doesnt wants them ... well his only choice is move on if he wants his kids... IMO people likes blame too much angelina because her past when brad was the married one, if he was unhappy in his marriage it was his business...in end i think angelina did a favor to jennifer - i read when they were married he liked stay stoned all day - and then angelina did favor to herself and their children - because he was a hard drinker who shouted out abuse on her AND their children.

Interesting enough, jen and angelina are both daughters of messy divorces who hold grievances against one of parents... i've always thought jen and justin were better suited as i read she being described as sophisticated woman and he a talented, intelectual sort from ny... all of them are just human... as for brad i hope he gets his act straight for his children AND  for himself - i like his movies and HE'S DAMN GORGEOUS TOO :shy:

Back in the day, when she was still with Brad, there were a good number of reports coming out about Jen's several miscarriages, with counterpieces coming out saying "she's focusing on her career", which considering how Jen is totally against paps/ pap walks/ publicity and still very private, I'm pretty sure the "she wants kids later" came from her PR camp to squash the talk about miscarriages, so she wouldn't have to talk about it publically at any point in the future. I'd love to know what the dirt really was, but I firmly remember several times reports coming of her miscarriages, she's said to have had one in Paris, and I think she simply couldn't stay pregnant and took it as her fate or whatever and just lived her life with that. Maybe she would have tried with a doc's help, but by that time Brad cheated and I think that she maybe waited for the right guy to try again (with medical help) and it didn't happen, so she rolled with it and stayed childless, finding happiness otherwise (it's not like children are a pre-requisite for a happy or fulfilled life, in some cases children wreck some people's lives...).
Which makes Brad's straying and quest for children even worse imo. Leaving your partner, esp in that way, because it turns out they can't have kids is cruel. After their split I also remember that bad comments were made by him about Jen, whilst she remained silent and then a simple "Brad lacks a sensitivity button" or some such came from her side and that was it. Jen's remained throughout her relationships pretty dignified I think and didn't badmouth anyone, and that says a lot about her.

And then the topper was, that Brad left Jen for Angelina, a badfckinsht lunatic, where everyone and their dog has known for ages that she has more than one screw loose. Yeah, Brad was said to be a major stoner back in the day (and still possibly is), but honestly I don't believe the bad rumours about him from camp St Jolie, until there's more "proof" that this could be true. Jolie is too well known for her craziness and tactics for me to believe that Brad's that bad/ that happened, even though Pitt is far from a fave of mine, so I'm not having this stance from the goodness of my heart or because I'm blinded by his looks or whatever. Stoners are also pretty chill, so his fondness for weed kind of contradicts in a way the "aggressive" claims.

^^ I'm also grossly offended by many articles re: Jen, the one below, where Jen is several times described as "middle aged" whereas Justin is described as "intellectual", who's only 3 years younger than her (so no age gap). Why are there no articles on St Jolie and why she can't keep any man? Nor woman, might I add, since she's famously "bi". Third divorce and crazy as a bat, but she gets mostly good press, I wonder why. Those PR visits to refuge camps and "working" for the UN & pap strolls with her zoo really paid off for her. Why no articles on Pitt and why he can't keep a woman? Or DiCaprio and his creepiness and hypocrisy when it comes to environmental issues? The likes of DiCaprio and Clooney are "bachelors", "lads", and "when will a woman come and sweep them off their feet so they commit?" But the likes of Jen and other women are "crazy", "can't keep a man", "clearly high maintenance", "won't give him a baby so he balks", "middle aged", "boring, "homely" (sth Jen is "accused" of, why is it so bad to be somewhat of a homebody and "boring" -i.e. scandal- and drug-free?). The comments in the article below are the best thing and so true, well worth reading (the "top rated" ones). Also disgusting the picture they paint of Jen ("can't keep a man" etc.) when it's apparently well known that Justin is a lying cheating bstard!! And then it's her fault because "she hates NYC and wouldn't move to NY and didn't like his apartment", why no articles on how he "hates LA wouldn't move there and hated her house"? Also they've been together for 7 years, so clearly a living arrangement wasn't the issue (they split their time between LA & NY). smh!

A man who doesn't have children "made a good decision" or is waiting for some magic young woman to birth the old creep some, so he's finally "complete", but heaven forbid a woman doesn't have children, and when fertility was an issue the stab in the heart from such articles must be 10000x worse. Gawd this whole bs really gets my gears working, as you can see by my novel of a rant. Sorry!

Why can’t Jennifer Aniston find a lasting love? ALISON BOSHOFF asks the question that sends the Friends actress into a rage... but as her two-year marriage ends it’s the one on everyone’s lips

Oh yeah and then all the bs fanfic on Jen and Brad getting back together. I think I rolled my eyes so hard, they nearly got stuck. Firstly the cheater doesn't deserve to be taken back for what I wrote above, and secondly why should Jen be the stepmother to the cheating a*sehole's zoo and co-parent with crazy Jolie, the morally loose husband snatcher? If Jen takes him back, I'll have to put Jen on the "crazy as a bat" list too. Also on the "dumb as fck" one.

PS: Boshoff is such an a*sehole with her petty little shyte article. I swear the "sisterhood" exists only in feminist fairytales, which women drugged out of their fcking mind have written when they were in dreamland!!!

Billy Bob Thornton did not have to say anything. She dropped him like a safe. Laura Dern had not so nice words to say about Angelina. She and Billy Bob Thornton were engaged. She and BIlly Bob were living together and when she returned from a movie shoot, Dern saw that Billy Bob was gone and was now 'with' Angelina.

I read someplace too that Jennifer A. had a miscarriage while married to Brad. I don't know if this is true or not. If so, she was trying for children with him apparently. I do believe it could have been miscarriages, like HRH HOlya states.

Brad was certainly no saint and was just as much to blame as Angelina. Although he wanted children, he seemed to have difficulties getting along with them especially Maddox (who adopted the name Jolie-Pitt). He is not seen with the children all that much and Angelina bad mouths him. Angelina does have good traits but on the domestic front she like Jennifer has not found lasting happiness. Her relationships have not lasted.

Laura Dern was apparently happy with Billy Bob until Angelina swooped in. Dern did want children (and had them with someone else down the road). And BIlly Bob did not have any with Angelina.

I still think Brad will move on with a younger woman and have a second family.

Oh btw one of the things that annoy the living heck out of me, are the countless claims and reports that Jen had miscarriages, but that is totally forgotten and she's blamed for all her failed relationships because "she doesn't want kids"; also the constant "she doesn't want kids" whilst at the same time running pics of her "pregnant" when she just had lunch and is on holiday, still that at the age of 48 (last summer)!!! Good gawd. Anyway, the "miscarriage in Paris" happened towards the end of her marriage with Brad (if I remember right), but there were at least one, but I think two actually, times before that when it was also said she had a miscarriage (so in total seems like she had 2-3, from what I can remember, and well, it's been a while, they divorced over 10 years ago!!).
I just don't understand how her miscarriages (or the gossip) have been forgotten by press & people and she gets such a bad pic painted of her just because she doesn't have any frikkin kids??

Even if she never wanted any, the men for sure knew that before they had a serious relationship with her, so it's such an a*sehole move to then walk because of the child issue. The child question is one of the biggest for any couple to sort out before it gets overly serious, and when they say they want some or they don't, then believe it and decide right then and there whether a future is possible and not "oh they'll change their mind!"

^ To be fair, imo, Brad wasn't seen publically as much with them, but Ang uses them for pap walks, so I don't quite count that. A bit like when Charles was blended out in media in favour of Diana and looked like a non-existent parent, even though he was there too (eg the pic when Di famously greets W&H with that big hug, Charles did too but no one cared to picture that and run it in the press, so he seemed "cold" and "distant").

I'm also not aware of any ex saying anything bad about Jen, except that once with Brad which she countered very well.

It's quite possible that Brad will create a second family, and maybe in a more "traditional" way than with Angelina.

Oh writing this also makes me remember ripe and countless rumours on how Brad's parents never liked and didn't get along with Jolie, but stayed in touch and on good terms with Jen even years after the divorce. No clue whether Jen is still friendly with the Pitts.

Billy Bob Thornton did not have to say anything. She dropped him like a safe.
are you talking about who here? because as he as angelina said he disliked when she adopted Maddox, then the marriage was over and she left their home... i remember him saying he wasnt a nice guy to her in end

Quote
Laura Dern had not so nice words to say about Angelina. She and Billy Bob Thornton were engaged. She and BIlly Bob were living together and when she returned from a movie shoot, Dern saw that Billy Bob was gone and was now 'with' Angelina.´
the issue here IMO, Dern has something good to say about Billy Bob Thornton?

Quote
I read someplace too that Jennifer A. had a miscarriage while married to Brad. I don't know if this is true or not. If so, she was trying for children with him apparently. I do believe it could have been miscarriages, like HRH HOlya states.
i also read she'd a miscarriage one time. I've never read that as some fact.... she indeed said they're too messy and life is good without them... i'm sorry i've never seen she as a woman longing for maternity... i remember when she was married to brad and doing Friends yet when asked for children and she rolled her eyes and started joking... i'm sorry but to me she obviously isnt the type... she likes her lifestyle with a partner but without the kids

Quote
I still think Brad will move on with a younger woman and have a second family.
i've read he didnt want any more adopted kids, so, i'm not believing he wants more kids with any other woman

agree, no ex of jen ever talked anything bad about her... no one of them must to be that bad

It is not known whether Brad wants more children or not. Like other celebrities, he might go for a woman half his age and have more kids (like Alec Baldwin). Maybe he did not want any more with Angie.

i'm sorry but Billy Bob (a wonderful actor IMO) has all vibes of being player... when he appeared to be so settled with someone else and their kids i was so surprised... btw he's single again... billy bob shouldnt to be seen as a innocent by  dern... for this matter i dont think any woman should to see her cheating partner as a innocent and the other woman is always bad and only to blame... brad must have his issues but i dont think he should to be compared to Alec B ... i believe he loves all his kids ... just my views... i think angelina obviouly likes play with fire and obviously it hits back on her and now in her kids, i dont think she wanted her kids being fruit of a bitter, messy divorce like she was... btw i dont think the former living girlfriend (for 10 years or more) of justin is feeling sorry for jen now, especially if the cheating with chelsea handler (?)  and others stories are true ... but again it was a choice of justin of ends the things that way with his former girlfriend because of jennifer anniston... it's sort of funny as hollywood has lots of those what goes around comes around stories ... just my views

Of course he's a player but that was not an excuse for him to go running away with Angelina when his fiancee was out of town. I doubt Dern was thrilled with his behavior but it does not excuse Angelina's behavior.

Angelina's and Brad's kids may have some issues or problems. Maddox quit school at 15, one of her daughters dresses like a boy. They don't seem to stay in one place. And Angelina talks about "her" kids not "hers and Brad's children." I think there is some bitterness. He is never seen with the children. He may love the children but he seems to have been minimized as far as any influence over them goes.

But I think he will remarry someone half his age. That's par for the course with actors IMO

^ Good, keep the original saga going  :tehe:
So, claims she's still good with her ex-in-laws.....

I also remember often coming up that Jen is "boring" and Pitt wanted "excitement" and Jolie was "exciting", well, we see where these "exciting women" carrying their partner's blood in vials around their neck get you and how they are.
What was heard of their parenting was always that the kids could do as they please. Go to bed when they want to, attend lessons when they want to etc, no rules at all, plus the globe trotting. No wonder they quit school at 15 (and count on a fortune to have to fall back on) and are unmanageable. One thing that's pointed out is that kids need structure and rules and boundaries. Wouldn't be surprised to find the Jolie-Pitt kids in the same situations as Jolie was (drugs, affairs etc etc), I've always thought that and the older they get the harder the impression becomes.

That's also what I meant when I said Pitt might want another shot with another family in the more traditional way. Perhaps get married first, have all kids biologically and raise them with roots. It's possible that he has issues with his brood with Jolie because of the lack of parenting and how they turnt out, he can't turn the boat (that takes both parents and if one refuses, it's pointless) and so he's kind of given up, distanced himself from them and bears the fallout..

And again, if Jen never wanted kids, all her partners would have known from the start, so this as reason for their split is ridiculous.

"when she was married to brad and doing Friends yet when asked for children and she rolled her eyes and started joking... i'm sorry but to me she obviously isnt the type... she likes her lifestyle with a partner but without the kids"

I'm the same though. Constant questions from (some of) my family whether I have a boyfriend, when am I getting married bla bla bla and seriously it's annoying the bejeezus out of me. I react the same way, I put the questions down, roll my eyes, make jokes and finally I regret not having done so last time but will next, to remind my uncle that he's living in sin and I haven't been to his wedding either (their oldest, my cousin, is a teen), "when are you getting married? We want to attend a wedding!" so next time my answer will be "you first". What I really want to say is "fck off!" If I were in the public eye, I'd act the same and say I don't discuss my private life. The truth is, I do want to get married and have kids, one day. Not desperate for it (not yet at least). It's also possible that through my comments and whatnot I also don't appear to be maternal, but not only am I very much maternal, I've often heard I'd be a "good mum one day" by people who've seen me with kids (playing, babysitting, feeding, explaining stuff, teaching them). Possible that I make here the impression not to want kids either, having said kids ruin some people's lives and are not all that and they are in fact messy, you come second until at least they are their own people etc etc, but it's all true and better to want kids and be realistic about them than to build up some dream fantasy and then be disappointed because they constantly poop in their diapers (they crp so much, I don't know how that's possible for such tiny babies!) and out of them!, are messy and turn into poeple you didn't picture them as.. Well..
So I don't take her public comments into account. The alternative would be her crying to the press that her dream of motherhood remained unfulfilled, and admitting big things like these no one does lightly. Again, Jen is notoriously private. Only one pic ever of her wedding to Pitt and no pic whatsoever from her second wedding. When she opened the door to her house for that commercial and then for the mag spread, I was surprised very much and thought something's up, very unlike her. Turns out she's selling the house after Justin and that was basically an ad for potential buyers.

Am I a massive Jen Aniston fan? Heck yes, don't think I can hide it. But I think I've been as objective as possible and am close to the truth.
Some of the very few H'weird people I have a massive soft spot for are Aniston and Tom Hanks!  :shy:

If she did have a miscarriage, that's really sad. But she also could have adopted and she hasn't, so maybe she doesn't want kids after all.

As for not wanting kids, some men hope the woman will someday change her mind, as a lot of them do when they hit their late 30s. But I don't think it's a good idea to date someone who doesn't want kids if you do. Too many people get caught up in their feelings for each other (especially nowadays, when so many people start sleeping together on the first date), and it ends up haunting them down the road. Just be good friends if you get along so well, but don't date.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux 'last met on Valentine's Day' and 'decided together' to announce their split 'the next day'
By Dailymail.com Reporter

PUBLISHED: 18:41 GMT, 18 February 2018 | UPDATED: 23:26 GMT, 18 February 2018

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux had one last Valentine's Day together this Thursday before revealing their split on Friday.

A source dished to People: 'They saw each other late at night on Valentine’s Day in LA. They decided together that they would make the announcement the next day. Justin flew on a private jet to LA to see Jen one last time.'

Jennifer, 49, 'didn’t want to announce it for as long as possible, because she wanted to avoid the media attention,' the magazine reports.  

Meanwhile, Justin, 46, 'wanted to make the announcement so he can live his life.'

While they did manage to spent a bit of Valentine's Day together, they were separate for another big day this week - Jennifer's birthday festivities on February 11.

She did have the company of such mates as her Friends co-star Courteney Cox, but Justin's absence fueled split rumors before the actual announcement.

Said the source: 'Jen hoped that Justin would be low-key on her birthday so people weren’t wondering why he wasn’t with her.

People's insider added: 'But that’s not Justin’s style. He wanted to make the announcement so he can live his life.'

@ not wanting kids

Same thing happened with Jeannie Mai she's one of the co host on the real .her and her husband getting divorced after 10 years ,but during the dating years she let him no from the start she dosen't want kids ok he was fine ( he was thinking she will change her mind ) then they got married she stil dosen't  want kids






Quote
Mai, 39, spoke frankly to her fellow The Real co-hosts on Thursday saying her choice to not have children “was definitely one of the big main factors” in their decision to file for divorce.

“When we were dating I was always very vocal — because I’ll never lead a man on when I know I don’t want to have children,” Mai said. “So, I was always honest about that. I think we were both so young — it was like 14 years ago — I think he also thought, ‘You know what, we’re so in love I don’t want that either.’ He could have been happy not having children with me.”

Despite this, Mai said she couldn’t rest easy knowing he wanted something she couldn’t give him.

Justin Theroux stayed in Jennifer Aniston's guest house as relationship fell apart... as it emerges they may not even have been legally married
Quote
But it has since emerged that there is no evidence a legal ceremony ever took place.
TMZ checked records in Los Angeles county as far back as 2010 and found no record of their marriage licence. The pair did not opt for a confidential marriage licence.
While it is possible that Jennifer, 49 and Justin, 46, filed their paperwork in a different county in Los Angeles, sources close to the pair insist this is not the case.

^  :- :o
I guess if there is no legal marriage, then it's a lucky escape for both, divorce is shyte and way too messy. Plus having divorces attached to your life's bio, no thanks.. What was the talk about Jen having an ironclad prenup? Though legal marriage or not, I'd have assumed anyway that they had an ironclad prenup, I'm not too familiar with Justin and the Theroux clan, but I read a comment that he's "east coast/ NY blue blood with a huge trust fund", so if that's also true then it's not like he needs her money anyway.

Could be that they had a ceremony and both or Jen wisely decided to not make it legal, so they had a "commitment ceremony" like gay couples used to have before gay marriage was legalized (and many still do, gay marriage is still illegal in many places..). Kimmel officiated, and as nice it is in the US to have your friends do these ceremonies, to me they are never as "serious" as when an "official" does them (regardless of legal veracity).

Many assume that Justin was in it to raise his profile, which might be well true, even though he had a great career before he met her, but yeah many people crave the limelight.

A shame that he's a cheating pig, I thought they were a nice looking couple :dontknow:

Jen has a soulmate when it comes to the media's "unlucky in love" and "childless" narrative: Kylie Minogue. They are the same age, only difference Kylie is quite vocal about wanting marriage and kids and having an unfulfilled dream of having her own family (kids).

^^ I think it rarely ends well when couples disagree on these kind of fundamental things, like kids etc. :( Too hard to cut your loss and move on from someone you love or are infatuated with, but longterm it creates serious issues..

Brendan Fraser says he was blacklisted from Hollywood 15 years ago when he reported that an executive molested him in a restaurant and reveals years of doing his own stunts broke his body and led to four major surgeries

    Fraser, 49, said in 2003 he was sexually harassed by the then-president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Philip Berk
    The alleged incident occurred at the Beverly Hills Hotel while they were having lunch where Berk 'copped a feel'
    Fraser said that he became depressed after the incident but Berk denied any wrongdoing
    Additionally, his body began to break down after years of performing stunts
    He needed multiple back surgeries, a partial knee replacement and vocal cord repairment
    Fraser said since 2008, he was in and out of hospitals for almost seven years
    The actor has been enjoying a minor resurgence on television, with a lauded supporting part in Showtime's 'The Affair' and an upcoming role in FX's 'Trust'


Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5423811/Brendan-Fraser-opens-sexual-harassment.html

"[...] The alleged incident occurred in 2003 at the Beverly Hills Hotel while they were having lunch. [...] While he did not go public, about the incident he eventually did report it to the HFPA, but their response was clear: Fraser was rarely invited back to the Globes after 2003.

In the article, Berk says he wrote a letter to Fraser about the incident but 'admitted no wrongdoing.' 

Fraser said that he became depressed and he started telling himself he deserved what had happened to him. [...]"

Soooo... How many career deaths of actors and actresses have happened thanks to refusing and reporting sexual harassment?

Actress Heather Locklear arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, assault on sheriff's deputy
Actress Heather Locklear was arrested at her Thousand Oaks home on Sunday night on suspicion of domestic battery and assault of a peace officer, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies were called to Locklear's house at 9:42 p.m. in response to a domestic incident involving the 56-year-old actress' boyfriend, said sheriff's Sgt. Eric Buschow.
"She was extremely hostile and uncooperative and at one point became combative with the deputies" and impeded their investigation, Buschow said.
Additional deputies were called to the scene after Locklear started trying to fight with the law enforcement officers, he said. She physically resisted arrest, and deputies struggled to get her into a patrol car.

Christ, can't celebs just manage their charities themselves?

^ Seriously, her "clothing company" is struggling every year, when has it not struggled? It would be best she gave it up, it's just embarrassing.

She's just got to stop trying to be a major celeb; she should just accept that she had her heyday and those days are over.

This is a vanity project that isn't profitable despite millions poured into it.

I don't know a great deal about the Beckhams, but I have always admired the fact that they seem to love their kids.  They seem to be a tight family even if the rumors that Victoria and David go their own way.   And she is not hanging on to a flash in the pan celebrity moment but is trying to have a real business, so I say good for her in trying to bring in someone with more skill at this than she.

I’ve had famous models work for me, like Diana Dondoe and Lara Stone — girls who are incredible without being famous beforehand.’
‘If I’m really honest, I’d rather have real people.
‘Real characters. Not celebrities’ kids.’

'The fact is, she doesn’t know what she’s doing and that’s why the backers have decided to act. The anger is mounting also because the staff know how much she pays herself.’
A spokesman confirmed the redundancies, saying: ‘The board has been focusing on returning the company to profitability.

I think this business is a vanity that's keeping the Beckham's brand in the press. It should either fold or become a mid-range clothing/accessories business. The 2 stores should be closed as they're costing millions per year to run with little return in the way of customers purchasing anything. I only feel bad for the workers that are losing their jobs.

'Everyone feels like they're a critic': Misty Copeland doubles down on her fiery response to those who slammed her after she failed to complete Swan Lake's famed 32 fouette turns

She has now addressed the issue once more, telling Cosmopolitan some viewers are bound to focus on technical prowess, rather than on the artistry of a performance.
'I just try not to get caught up in reviews and reading things on the internet because they don't know you and people don't know your journey and I think that especially in America, especially in New York, when people come to see ballet, I think everyone kind of feels like they're a critic,' she told the magazine.

IMO, she's now using this to brand out and get more opportunities beyond the ballet world. She's been known not to do the full required 32 fouette turns so it's odd that now this is in the news. I *despise* that she's crying wolf and using the race card as a marketing tool to now get her name out in the press again as she did to get the principal role in the first place. I think she's going to quite the ballet later this year to chase more lucrative opportunities, hence these articles in the press.

Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II

The only suprise to me is, that they haven't split sooner. Both couples.

Hank's scandal with that transvestite (pr*stitute?), Kendra is also I think crazy, but I never followed them and the only thing I know for sure about is that tranny (h**ker?) scandal. That ought to be too much for anyone.

Then also Channing Tatum saying about himself that he is a "functioning alcoholic", plus rumours about him partying all the frikkin time and cheating on Jenna.
The writing was on the wall, as soon as a couple starts bragging and talking about their sex life, then poses for "pap pics" as "happy family", and Jenna saying recently that there are times when they "*despise* each other", that says all. You know a split/ divorce is about to come. Not getting along with your spouse from time to time is normal, but h*te is a bit too much for any couple I'd think....

The only bs that grates on my nerves is always these stupid idiotic statements on "we split lovingly/ with love/ we still love each other and are the bestest of friends for ever and ever and we barf rainbows and glitter". Give me a fookin break, if you loved each other so much you'd work on your marriage and not head to divorceville. I *despise* H'weird and their bs.

EXCLUSIVE: 'It's no secret that they despise each other!' Ex-security guard for Church of Scientology reveals bitter rivalry between Tom Cruise and John Travolta and how he was given 'the beating of his life' for speaking to celebs

    Former Scientologist Brendan Tighe was part of Tom Cruise's security detail at the church's headquarters in Clearwater, Florida until 2009
    He has laid bare the rivalry between Cruise and John Travolta - who believed he was leader David Miscavige's 'favorite son' before the actor came along
    He told DailyMail.com: 'I can assure you Travolta doesn't recognize Cruise as a superior in any way. When Cruise got that medal Travolta was so pi**ed off'
    The Top Gun actor was awarded the Freedom Medal of Valor by Miscavige which is said to have made Travolta 'jealous' and caused him to fire off an angry letter
    The 37-year-old also told how he was forced to have his teeth whitened because 'you had to have a good smile for Tom Cruise'
    'In all those years, I think he said hi to me three times, even though I'd be in the hotel every single day,' he said
    Tighe claims he was once 'violently pulled out of bed' for speaking to a celebrity

Audio Of Corey Feldman Allegedly Naming Sexual Predators In 1993 Has Been Found


Actor Corey Feldman said he went to law enforcement in 1993 and gave them the names of sexual predators, but the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said that wasn’t true. Now the California sheriff’s office is saying differently.

Feldman, 46, has long insisted there are people in Hollywood who are guilty of abusing child actors. He has alleged that actor Jon Grissom and former child talent manager and convicted sex offender Martin Weiss both molested him when he was younger. Feldman said he went to the police in 1993 and nothing happened. Fearful of retaliation, he never went back to the authorities.

Now, the authorities say they have found the tapes from Feldman’s 1993 visit to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office.

In a statement first released Tuesday night, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Kelly Hoover wrote:

It was always "ecstasy" and now they've renamed it or what?) and generally didn't like anything that "made him loose control" so I guess never took any drugs, which nonetheless contradicts the alcoholism tbh. Though I get how he fell into it (he said it was offered everywhere he went to for free), but still to drink so much he had such issues at his young age and then died from it, and well, what about saying "no"? It's really not that hard imo :dontknow: Such a waste of a young life and talent (I'm not at all into EDM, but I liked the stuff I heard of his).

Morgan Freeman APOLOGIZES after being accused of sexual harassment by eight women including young assistant whose 'skirt he tried to lift up repeatedly' and a CNN reporter who says he called her 'ripe' as she interviewed him while pregnant

    The women include former staff at Revelations Entertainment, Freeman's production company 
    One claims he tried to lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear in 2015
    Alan Arkin, his co-star on Going In Style, apparently intervened and he stopped
    Others 'stopped wearing skirts around him' and say he was like a 'creepy uncle'
    CNN reporter Chloe Melas also claims Freeman was inappropriate to her in 2017
    She was interviewing him while six-months pregnant about a film at the time
    Freeman allegedly called her 'ripe' and said he wanted to 'be there'
    They date back to 2008 and include claims he inappropriately massaged interns and stared at other staffers breasts
    Freeman, 80, told DailyMail.com he would 'never intentionally offend or make anyone uncomfortable'
    He apologized to anyone who felt 'disrespected' by his actions

Screen Actors Guild considers stripping Morgan Freeman of lifetime achievement award - which he won at height of Hollywood's #MeToo moment - amid harassment claims

    Freeman, 80, was given the lifetime achievement award in January this year
    On Thursday, eight women alleged misconduct in an article published by CNN
    He apologized for it but said he never intentionally meant to hurt anyone
    SAG is now considering stripping him of his five-month-old award in light of it
    He accepted the award at the peak of the #MeToo protests and used his speech to call for gender equality by complaining about the male award statue

Also the fact that R Kelly still fills concerts, has fans and women go with him leaves me speechless.

I remember when Matthew Mcconaughey looked extremely gaunt when he was filmed at an airport. It turned out he was playing an HIV/AIDS victim in the film The Dallas Buyers Club for which he won an Oscar.

I'm hoping he's losing weight for a movie part. He really does look gaunt, and not just in his face. Folks say, gossip,wise, he carries a bandana around to cover the arm track marks for his alleged heroin use. But I wouldn't know never having taken illegal drugs.

Apparently in her note she wrote to her daughter that it isn't her fault, not wanting for the poor kid to blame herself. Reading that was quite heartbreaking, beyond sad.

Kate Spade dead at 55: How designer created a $2.4billion fashion empire with her husband but lost out on billions by cashing out early and spent her final years trying to launch a second brand which never matched up

    Kate Spade and her husband Andy launched her eponymous company in 1993
    In 1999, they sold 56% of the company to Neiman Marcus for $34million
    In 2007, they cashed out by selling the remaining 44% for $59million
    A month later, Neiman Marcus sold the entire company to Liz Claiborne Inc for $124million
    Last year, after rebranding as Kate Spade & Co, Claiborne sold to Tapestry (which owns Coach and Stuart Weitzman) for $2.4billion
    Around the same time, Spade and her husband launched Frances Valentine
    They own 100% of the company and its financials have never been released

    Kate Spade was found dead at the age of 55 in her Park Avenue apartment on Tuesday, with a police source telling the New York Post the designer took her life due to 'relationship issues'
    The designer left a note telling her daughter it was not her fault before taking her own life by hanging and
    She was discovered 'unconscious and unresponsive' by her housekeeper just after 10am, with her husband in the apartment but her daughter at school

"TMZ is reporting that the note read: 'Bea - I have always loved you. This is not your fault. Ask Daddy!'."

I expect there's a lot now to come out in the media, but what a curious note, I mean the "ask daddy!" part. This implies 2 things: 1. "It's daddy's fault I committed suicide", or 2. "It is not your fault, ask daddy, he'll confirm (and he'll be there for you)!"

My 1st thought went immediately to n°1 and I still think it is so, also when considering she changed her surname some years ago from "Spade" to "Valentine". At this point it looks like the marriage was in tatters, and the guy was even home when she hanged herself.

I also wonder why she addressed her daughter as "Bea", her name is Frances Beatrix Spade, I guess maybe they used "Bea"..

PS How can TMZ have info like this so quickly? Insiders at the police etc??

Cash-strapped Boris Becker puts trophies and mementos from his tennis career up for auction in bid to raise £1m to help cover his £54MILLION debts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5829221/Cash-strapped-Boris-Becker-puts-trophies-mementos-auction.html


How is this even possible? I never believed he's genuinely bankrupt and I still can't. For one, everyone with money has off shore accounts that are untouchable by countries where tax is due, I cannot believe that BB hasn't been advised or looked himself into squirreling money off shore where it's untouchable; for another he's auctioning off comparatively dingley itty bitty pieces, because he seems to have a garage full of flash cars which are worth much more and would therefore bring in more; which brings me to the main reason why I think he isn't really bankrupt: he has his flash cars, which he drives daily around London, has several properties, let a property worth millions in Mallorca literally rot (for which he was sued by gardeners as he supposedly never paid them, and was also sued by Germany for tax evasion), has properties in several places, constantly travels and lives still like a millionaire, shops, and even though he's said to live in London, he's supposedly in reality splitting his year between London and Switzerland. According to comments in that article he also apparently constantly gets parking tickets, and his car was towed fairly recently too. If that isn't wasting money, I don't know what is, and supposedly he doesn't have a penny to waste!!

Also, he's been sued before (by Germany) for tax evasion, why didn't he move eons ago like all rich stinkers who avoid tax to Monaco??

He can't possibly have been this mismanaged and foolish to have lost all that, 54 mil?? Usually any rich idiot who loses everything ends up on someone's couch or on the street, there are plenty cases. B seems to still live the high life though..

Oh and he has a new job, but doesn't get paid for it (it's "volunatry" work), even though they offered him several times a nice salary, he declined, so if that doesn't smell like some evasion tactic, I don't know what does. And someone truly broke wouldn't refuse a salary ffs!

No eye contact, no small talk and don't stand too close: MeToo icon Rose McGowan's diva demands revealed

[...]

Prior to her arrival at a London TV studio, staff were astonished to receive a phone call from her people making the following demands: 'She must be met by someone of stature at reception.

'Don't refer to her as a star — she knows this and sees no reason to have this brought up. No eye contact. No direct questions. Don't stand too close.

'Do not offer any refreshments or engage in any small talk. When departing you may thank her for her time, but only if she requests that conversation.'

The imperious checklist did not go down too well with the TV studio. 'Let's just say that Weinstein was far nicer when he came in,' says my source. 'Naturally, we took no notice.'

McGowan, 44, best known for her role in the TV series Charmed, later ended up walking out of an interview with a French broadcaster.

She told the interviewer: 'Your questions are dumb and reductive. Is this the best you can do. Really?'

"don't speak to them unless spoken to" contrary to popular belief, this isn't even a rule (or "protocol") when meeting Liz. And even then I'd ignore that, what pretentious inhumane bs.

Angelina Jolie ordered to give Brad Pitt more access to their kids or risk losing primary custody

    The Oscar-winning actress, 43, has been ordered to let her estranged husband, 54, see the kids regularly while she films Maleficent 2 in the UK this summer
    Jolie has primary physical custody of the former couple's six children, Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, nine
    According to court documents obtained by DailyMail.com, the Superior Court of Los Angeles County determined that 'not having a relationship with their father' would be 'harmful'
    The court believes the kids are safe with Pitt and that it's critical each of the kids have a healthy and strong relationship with both parents
    Jolie and Pitt split in 2016 amid allegations of child abuse against Pitt during an incident aboard a private plane. He was eventually cleared of any wrongdoing

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Lipsticks drawn in battle of the beauty queens: Entrepreneur Charlotte Tilbury accuses model Rosie Huntington-Whitely of ripping off her make-up brand
Beauty specialists have noted the striking similarities between Charlotte’s luxury brand, whose distinctive bronze packaging is instantly recognisable across the world, and the Rosie for Autograph range.
Television presenter and beauty blogger Trinny Woodall noted the physical resemblance and claimed that, in her opinion, there was little difference in quality between Charlotte’s expensive wares, which cost £100 for a night cream, and Rosie’s budget-friendly line, which charges only £10 for body cream.
Trinny added insult to injury by claiming that Rosie’s line lasted longer.
Charlotte’s comments come weeks after Rosie — who lives in Los Angeles with her fiance Jason Statham and their year-old son Jack — launched her own beauty website, Rose Inc., which offers tips and tutorials.

^ Some comment that CT stole herself from 1980s M&S design.
Tbh I can't stand CT, seeing her on video had me instantly dislike her, I don't know why. She imo thinks she's above it all.. Anyway, very rude of her to tell Rosie to stick to what she knows/ does best, i.e. modelling. CT knows full well that modelling careers last only so long and Rosie is over 30, which is like 80 in the modelling business. I think CT is lashing out because Rosie's line likely sells better, as it's better priced. CT's stuff is grossly overpriced. Would never buy the stuff for so many reasons, two major ones already said: price and my dislike for CT.

The packaging is good though.

^Rose is absolutely LOVELY!! That wedding looks like it was so much fun! Sophie and Maisie....um...not a fan of their outfits. Not sure Sophie's can count as an outfit-seems the bottom half has gone missing.

Seeing the crew together made me realize how much I have missed the show and makes me even more excited for the next season of GoT!!

Cheryl announces her two and a half year relationship with Liam Payne is over... hours after celebrating her 34th birthday
Cheryl has announced her two and a half year relationship with Liam Payne is over.
The singer, 34, who shares young son Bear with the One Direction star, confirmed their split in a tweet addressed to her 7million Twitter followers on Sunday evening.
The announcement comes little more than 24-hours after Cheryl celebrated her 34th birthday, a milestone party Liam failed to attend despite flying back to the United Kingdom earlier that day.
Cheryl and Liam, who welcomed Bear in March 2017, have not been seen together publicly in four months, with February's BRIT Awards the last time fans saw them walking the carpet as a couple.
Just last week Liam spoke fondly of the former Girls Aloud singer while admitting that she had made the first move by 'ticking him' when they reunited on The X Factor in 2014.

^ lols exactly, very shocking & surprising.. not! It was a matter of time. I never followed One Direction, saw the odd interview with them and Liam seemed likeable, but gosh since going solo and his relationship with chav Cheryl he's been immature, childish and incredibly annoying and downright disrespectful towards Cheryl and a total imbecilic plank. I don't like her, but you don't talk like that and don't reveal those things about your other half. She's 10 years or so older than he, but he constantly mocking her for her age in public was really low. He chose her, you choose your partner, then shut up & put up, don't mock them. If it doesn't work, break it off, but don't make fun of them or reveal embarrassing personal details. Then saying it's "banter". No, it's not.

Revealed: How Victoria is vying for attention from 'impassive' David in 'one-sided' displays of affection following THOSE divorce rumours
But according to leading behavioural experts, there is more to the pictures than meets the eye - with the couple's body language hinting at tension, confusion, hurt and 'conflict'.
Body language expert Judi James told FEMAIL: 'These PDAs seem to be one-sided with David apparently sitting with an impassive-looking back view, while Victoria binds her arms around him lovingly, staring up into his face as though trying to get his attention.' 
1. David is 'drawing into himself'
2. Victoria 'staring intently' up at her husband
3. 'No response' as David leans away
4. Victoria's raised jaw betrays 'tension'
'When we see the video as a moving film we get a better sense of the context of the situation. Instead of a set of individual pictures about a marriage in crisis, the film appears to show that the couple are enjoying and absorbed in the day's events and being open about their affection for each other.'

The rumours have been strong for years now that they're only together for "Brand Beckham", the worst is that they have dragged the kids into their brand. All these slebs touting how they want a "normal" upbringing for their kids and that they work small jobs to learn about the value of money bla bla bla and next thinh you know, their sprog is in the media 24/7, riding their parents' coattails, starting a "career" in modeling/film/TV/music (Beckham, Ramsay, Cindy Crawford come instantly to mind). It's one of the lame H'weird scripts they all follow. Like they can endear the public to their bs. "We'll finish school/ We insist our kid finishes school, goes to uni and if the gardes aren't good they're not allowed on the red carpet!" is another bs line fed by their PR machine.

Why doesn't any of them strive for another career, with their interest? Why does it always have to be entertainment?

I also read, but don't know how true, that Dave lives mainly in the States and Vicky in England (in any case: seperate lives) and that Dave has a daughter in Miami, where he allegedly basically lives (without the rest his the Beckham clan).

A VERY Posh sale! She's a walking billboard for her fashion label but Victoria's Beckham's push for sales seems to have failed as 400 items on her website have their prices slashed
But it seems that Victoria Beckham’s attempts to push sales have failed after more than 400 items on her website had their prices slashed by up to 70 per cent.
The former Spice Girl, 44, reduced the price of 200 items in January, and has now cut the price of hundreds more.
A representative for Mrs Beckham last night refused to comment.

Samantha Cameron's fledgling fashion firm reveals losses of more than half a MILLION in its first year
It launched in a blaze of publicity with support from celebrity pals, but Samantha Cameron’s fledgling fashion label has now revealed losses of more than half a million pounds.
Latest accounts for Mrs Cameron’s Cefinn business show it lost £561,795 in its first year. The disappointing figures are a surprise given the stellar support for the venture, including from fashion luminaries such as Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
The losses will do little to calm the nerves of former Prime Minister David Cameron’s wife about her first foray into the world of fashion.
In an interview last year she admitted: ‘I worry about not selling anything and going bust… it’s definitely terrifying and totally all- consuming – but it’s fun.’
The 47-year-old is regularly seen in her own creations and describes her clothes as being for ‘busy women’.
Last year, President Trump’s wife Melania was pictured wearing a £295 ‘belted muslin shirt dress’ design from the Ceffin range.
Selling online and at top stores including Selfridges and Fenwick, most of Sam Cam’s dresses cost between £270 and £340.
The financial teething troubles are unlikely to concern Cefinn’s wealthy investors, who include former Tory Party chairman Lord Feldman of Elstree and Mark Esiri, chairman of luxury goods firm Smythson, where Mrs Cameron used to be creative director.
A spokesman for Cefinn, which employed ten staff when the accounts for the period ending October 31, 2017, were filed, insisted that its performance had been ‘above expectations’.

'I think a woman should be wooed and chased': Henry Cavill admits he is hesitant to flirt because he may be 'called a rapist or something' in the wake of the #MeToo movement
'There's something wonderful about a man chasing a woman. There's a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I'm old-fashioned for thinking that,' he told GQ Australia this month.  :flirt:
The Man Of Steel star added: 'It's very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it's like, "Well, I don't want to go up and talk to her, because I'm going to be called a rapist or something".
'So you're like, "Forget it, I'm going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked".'
'But it's way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell, because I'm someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what's going to happen?'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5938673/Henry-Cavill-admits-hesitant-flirt-women-MeToo-movement.html
I can't blame him at being hesitant. It's also smart to know that going bad to an ex-girlfriends won't work either. He actually comes off as a nice, thoughtful, decent man.

Henry Cavill admits he's still insecure about being 'a chubby kid' as he returns to the dating scene following his split with stuntwoman Lucy Cork
Superman actor Henry Cavill has admitted that he sometimes feels insecure about his looks because he was a 'chubby kid'.
Talking about being 'chubby' when he was younger, Henry admitted those insecurities have resurfaced thanks to social media.
'When you learn that you died two days ago': Henry Cavill...
'It's definitely something which does play with your head,' Henry said.
Henry added that scrolling through Instagram makes him think, 'Oh, that's me looking bad, me looking bad, me looking bad.'

Harvey Weinstein 'admits' he offered actresses jobs in exchange for sex in sensational interview - but now the reporter behind it says he may have 'misinterpreted' the accused rapist's words

    Weinstein spoke to The Spectator after offering them a 'world exclusive' interview
    Journalist Taki Theodoracopulos said he said: 'Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone.
    Later, Weinstein's lawyer - who was present for the interview  - said he never made such a remark 
    Theodoracopulos also said Weinstein suggested Asia Argento and Anthony Bourdain did not have an 'open' relationship as claimed by Rose McGowan
    He suggested it was to cover up for the fact that Argento had been seen with a man in Rome weeks before Bourdain's death
    Weinstein maintains an office with a 'pretty German secretary' in New York
    He is awaiting trial on charges of criminal sex acts and violent physical attack which he denies

^I, too!  Downton should be hitting, timewise, the two biggest events of that half of the century; the Great Depression (1929) and/or WW2.  George Crawley will be 18 in 1939. 

The Depression would make for a ripe plot.  If I remember correctly, Cora's mother mentioned that her money was held in a Trust within a bank.   If so, she could potentially lose everything.  England was in rough shape, too, post-ww1 and double hit with the Slump.  The only industries that thrived during that period where these people lived was the motor car industry (Branson and Mary's hubby) and the Syndicate in the eastern US (rum runners from prohibition, then organized crime), Cora's folks and Rose.  I can't remember, was Rose's husband an attorney?

Could be absolutely fascinating.

Jessica Biel's kid friendly restaurant Au Fudge shuts two years on leaving shocked staff 'in tears'
While the restaurant and full service bar, which was billed as 'fun for kids and kids at heart', is now closed, the company will do private events.
Speaking to ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel, she said the business was 'definitely not making money.'
She added: 'Nobody’s making money in the restaurant business, in my experience, at least not yet.'
The suit claimed that the bulk of the restaurant's money came from 'buyouts', or private events in which they routinely charged clients 22 per cent gratuity - but the employees claim they never saw their tips.

'You can't keep a free spirit locked up for long': Miley Cyrus and fiancé Liam Hemsworth 'are currently not together after enduring a rough few months'
Miley Cyrus and her fiancé Liam Hemsworth are reportedly not together 'for now' after enduring a 'rough few months'.
The Wrecking Ball singer, 25, and Hunger Games star, 28, were believed to have called off their wedding due to disagreements about when to have children.
And reflecting on their relationship, sources have now claimed that Miley is 'strong-willed' and 'can't be locked up for long'.
'She's strong-willed and you can't keep a free spirit locked up for long,' an anonymous source told NW magazine on Monday.
Last week, Miley abruptly removed all of the photos on her Instagram account.

Lilly and Boris Becker are pictured talking to police at £5m home for the second time in a month... as she leaves with sentimental canvas and teddy

    On July 11, police were also called following a 'domestic dispute' between them
    Officers visited the property at around 10pm after receiving a call over the alleged incident involving the cash-strapped star
    It was revealed in May that three-times Wimbledon champion Becker had split from his Dutch model wife after nine years of marriage
    The pair have an eight-year-old son, Amadeus

I wonder what is going on. With these police calls and Boris being locked out as well a week or so ago, it seems like this separation is really ugly and the divorce might get even uglier...

Angelina Jolie is 'so hostile' and 'unreasonable' amid divorce from Brad Pitt that her lawyer Laura Wasser 'is on the verge of quitting'

Things are getting so ugly between Angelina Jolie and estranged husband Brad Pitt amid their divorce that her lawyer wants to call it quits, a new reports claims.

Jolie, 43, is allegedly making the divorce negotiations and child custody battle very hostile and has been 'out for blood'.

A source connected to Pitt, 54, told TMZ that they believe the Maleficent actress wants 'to kill any relationship he has with his kids'.

He is hands-down one of the dumbest men ever, this is where you get when you think with your dck. Congratulations Brad, tbh I don't have too much sympathy.

‘George I *despise* you’: Fadi Fawaz goes on rambling Twitter rant against ex-boyfriend George Michael after it was revealed that the Wham! star had excluded him from his will
Taking to the social media site, hairdresser Fadi, 45, wrote: 'George I *despise* you.'
He followed up the tweet with a series of other messages that repeated his earlier claims that the former Wham! star, 53, killed himself in 2016.
The latest tweets come after George Michael's cousin earlier said that the singer had left nothing in his will to Fadi.
Mr Georgiou said Fadiwas contesting his exclusion from the will.
He said: 'Fadi is threatening to go all the way to High Court but I think the estate will have to settle with him.
'He's been offered £500,000 and I think the estate should pay a couple of million to get rid of him.'

May George rest in peace and his family finds strength dealing with his loss.  :BFF:

Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams are pregnant with their first child
She's the Pretty Little Liars actress and he played Mike Ross as Meghan Markle's lover on Suits.
And after tying the knot in December 2016, Troian Bellisario, 32, and Patrick J Adams, 36, are expecting their first child.
According to Us Weekly, a source close to the pair has confirmed the happy news. 
E! News reported on Monday that pregnancy speculation first arose when Troian and Patrick were seen holidaying in Greece, in pictures obtained by DailyMail.com.
'Photographers spotted Troian and Patrick on the beach in Mykonos,' they said.
'The star covered her tiny baby bump in a chocolate brown one-piece as she frolicked through the water with the Suits actor.' 
Since their loved up holiday, the happy couple have shied away from sharing photos together, particularity of Troian's mid-section.
Troian first rose to fame as Spencer Hastings on the American drama series Pretty Little Liars alongside Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale. 
Also an actor, Patrick who hails from Canada played the college dropout turned unlicensed lawyer on Suits - the love interest of paralegal Rachel Zane - the now married Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.
Troian and her love also attend the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and the beauty earlier in the year.
The lovebirds got engaged in 2014 and wed in a 2016 rustic bohemian three-day glamping ceremony near California's central coast in front of family and friends.
Troian and Patrick, who are yet to publicly comment on the pregnancy news, spent their honeymoon in Australia.

Bethenny Frankel says her Real Housewives co-stars 'can't afford the lives they're living'
And Bethenny Frankel doesn't exactly admire her fellow Real Housewives Of New York castmates either... at least when it comes to managing their finances.
'They can't afford the lives they're living,' the 47-year-old said in the September issue of Money magazine.
But she eventually sold her Skinnygirl cocktail line for $100million - and even negotiated a deal that meant RHONY network Bravo wouldn't get a cut of the profits.
'Everybody else just had to try to play catch-up after they saw what I did,' she said of what came to be known as the 'Bethenny clause'.

REVEALED: Harvey Weinstein accuser and #MeToo figurehead Asia Argento 'paid $380k to young actor who accused her of sexually assaulting him in a hotel room when he was just 17 and claims the ordeal wrecked his career'
Argento, who was dating celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain before his death, was one of the first actresses to accuse disgraced Miramax producer Weinstein of sexual assault in October last year.
Yet just a month later, she received a notice to sue from actor Jimmy Bennett's lawyers who accused her of sexually assaulting him in a California hotel in 2013, when he was 17 and she was 37. Californian age of consent is 18.
Newly released documents, first obtained by the New York Times, reveal that she settled the claim out of court for $380,000.
The notice was sent to Anthony Bourdain's lawyer, Richard Hofstetter, who was representing Argento at the time. In it, Bennett's lawyers claimed the sexual assault was so traumatizing that it had affected their client's acting career.
The original notice asked for $3.5 million in damages for the intentional infliction of emotional distress, lost wages, assault and battery.

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Danny Boyle wasn't trusted with lucrative 007 franchise out of fears he'd turn James Bond into a '#MeToo socialist spy'
Since James Bond bosses announced that Danny Boyle would no longer be directing their next film, the showbusiness world has been agog with speculation about the reasons for the dramatic parting of ways.
Now a former Bond villain has suggested he knows why Boyle, who staged the opening for the London Olympics, was not trusted with the highly lucrative 007 franchise.
Jonathan Pryce, left, who played the baddie in Tomorrow Never Dies, tells me mischievously: ‘They obviously couldn’t take a socialist Bond.’
He adds: ‘You see, there are the Dannys of this world and then there are people who do the blockbusters.’
Republican Left-winger Boyle used the Olympics ceremony to celebrate Britain as a ‘modern progressive’ country, but his extravaganza was denounced by then Conservative MP Aidan Burley, who described it as ‘Leftie multicultural c***’, while other critics branded it ‘Marxist propaganda’.
Trainspotting director Boyle, 61, who won an Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire, is said to have wanted to make the Bond film, which was due to start shooting in three months’ time, more topical and include a Russian baddie. He was also said to want to ‘help the franchise evolve in the #MeToo and #TimesUp era’ of political correctness.
Speaking at the Raindance Film Festival Auteur Award at The Dorchester, Pryce warns that politics should not intrude on film-making. ‘You do bring some kind of personal sensibility to your work, but it shouldn’t be too obvious, unless it’s a film which is overtly political,’ he says.
He worked with Boyle on a Nineties TV drama, Mr Wroe’s Virgins.
Asked why they have not worked together since, Pryce replies: ‘You tell me. I like him as a man and as a film-maker.’

Quel dommage! Serena Williams is BANNED from wearing her skin-tight catsuit at the French Open because it is 'disrespectful to the game' - but fans say the decision is 'terrible' and 'racist'
The French Tennis Federation president, Bernard Giudicelli, says the tournament that Williams has won three times is introducing a dress code to regulate players' uniforms because 'I think that sometimes we've gone too far'.
In an interview in Tennis Magazine's 500th edition, Giudicelli singled out the figure-hugging black suit that Williams wore this year at Roland Garros and said made her feel like a superhero.
'It will no longer be accepted,' Giudicelli said. 'One must respect the game and the place.'
He said Roland Garros' new rules won't be as strict as Wimbledon's, which require that players wear white, but will 'impose certain limits'.
Many player uniforms for 2019 have already been designed but Giudicelli said the FFT will be asking manufacturers for an advance look at them.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6094589/French-Open-saying-Non-Serenas-catsuit.html
It’s not the uniform for the game though and I agree with the official. Serena had a good practical reason to wear the suit, but it shouldn’t be the norm. The ignorance of some of the comments going straight for the racism angle is just sickening.


Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 25, 2018, 12:34:49 am
Serena needs to stop with the flamboyant dress and just dress in whites and a visor; standards are not something that should be tossed out and this is a sport that is associated with the upper crust. She's been in tennis for ages now and has no reason to dress inappropriately.


Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II
Post by: HRHOlya on August 25, 2018, 11:19:42 am
Imo Serena must have some other illness, some genetic disorder or a syndrome, it is not normal that she has this frequently this many bloodclots.
She must be taking anticoagulants? Aren't they working? Also her behaviour doesn't help: flying long distance is a huge no-no, and she was already on planes soon after giving birth (pregnancy & birth further bloodclot risk factors, which apparently did provoke further p embolisms) and competing in sports and hobnobbing. And being back to tennis this soon. I also don't understand what she is trying to prove by forcing herself to compete in sports this soon after having her baby, she has achieved everything and has loads of money and such a long career, why doesn't she enjoy life and her child & husband?

If the suit really is for health reasons, then imo it should be allowed, but I think another colour would have looked nicer and for sunny days black is a bad idea anyway.

And the suit isn't as bad as the usual tennis gear for women, which has your knickers constantly exposed, so you have to wear shorts underneath the skirt..

Also she must have the usual compression hoisery, why didn't she wear that underneath her usual  tennis gear? That suit to my eyes doesn't look like it does a particularly good job compression nor does the material look like it's compressing her legs etc.
It's not like the suit is really that necessary, the usual surgical socks & hoisery look nicer imo than the suit...


Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II

Angelina Jolie cuts ties with lawyer Laura Wasser and hires new counsel 'for the protection and best interest of her children' as Brad Pitt split lingers on

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6102547/Angelina-Jolie-cuts-ties-power-lawyer-Laura-Wasser-remains-focused-healing.html

The real story is in the comments (top rated). I agree with the comment that the judge should "Rutherford" her. The sooner the better. And that she should be held in contempt.

Also a great comment were one poster points out how you couldn't say anything negative about St Jolie because people were eating up her PR, which is quite ridiculous because she's been known since forever to be totally off the rails (drugs, Frenching her brother at the Oscars, carrying vials of blood with her....).

Some saying she's still a user and I think that's true. People usually don't come off those hard drugs. They either get subsitutes by their docs or get the "real" stuff from good sources. I think it's Keith Richards who said that the only reason none of them have died due to drugs is because they always get top quality..

Her weight is frightening, but has been for years now. Funny her pap walks with the kids this past week amidst the true and ugly headlines and comments in the past few weeks. Who gets up in heels and dresses like that for shopping trips with their kids? Especially the shoes! And the fake boobs on show with the nipples on display. Her PR is nowhere near as good as it used to be, maybe she lost the little bit of brain she ever had.

I can't wait for her kids to grow up and write their tell-alls. :laundry:

PS Besides, she wants "peace" but hires now cut-throat lawyers famous for slandering the opposing party (here: Brad) and drove off Wasser who's known for co-parenting and settlements... That sounds about right.. not.

Post by: HRHOlya on August 28, 2018, 06:30:50 pm
^ I also think that J Garner is pretty smart and I think has called the paps for years, esp when with her kids and going to church. She's no wilting wallflower, but still her using her kids to a degree and doing these pap walks are different to other celebs and I'm saying this as someone fairly indifferent to Jen Garner, I do like her, but I'm not a fan if that makes sense. Well, anyway, I think she may have endured quite a bit with Affleck and at this point I think that the pap walks she's been doing for a few years now were "insurance" in case of a divorce as proof that she's a good & fit mother, and knowing Affleck and his issues which he's had since before her, went on the wagon and fell off (gambling, alcohol, women) I don't blame her. It was smart and is a good move for any parent with a dysfunctional spouse. But she seems to be going the really high road trying to keep her kids' dad in their lives and even staging an intervention and driving him to rehab. Not every woman would do that, I think she must be pretty strong to detach her personal feelings and try to do what's best for him and their family.

Then you have Jolie on the other side, staging some bs against Pitt and surprise surprise having a rented house at the ready she could move into straight after! Pitt even went to anger management etc which does not prove Jolie's claims, because sometimes accused go to these things to show the court a good will etc (politics basically).

I don't think it's OT, but I'm not a mod, if it is OT we could create another thread...

Anyway, on the Rutherford question, yes I think she got what she deserved and the judge ruled fairly.
Rutherford is the same type of bytch as Jolie is. Rutherford separated from her husband and the man learnt through the papers that his 2nd child with her was born. Then she made up lies to have his green card revoked, so he couldn't live in or even just enter the US. Which looks like she just married a rich sperm donor. He could prove his innocence, but the green card was gone and so the judge ruled that because he couldn't see the kids but she was free to travel the kids would live with him. She got exactly what she asked for. He is even generous to pay for her 1st class flights etc so she can see the kids in Monaco!! She's a vindictive bytch who wanted to take away her kids from their father and it didn't work.

I think there might be more to the story but I didn't follow at the time, but I think this is enough (at least for me) to conclude that Rutherford is toxic and got a fair judgement.

Jolie is the very same and needs to "be Rutherford" for sure.

I never liked Jen Garner and she's not an innocent ingenue; she's had relationships and I am certain that a huge amount of problems Ben has had is that he cannot become the husband Jen wants him to be. He isn't a minivan man and I think he hates suburban life. Jen tried to turn him into something he's not and refuses to develop some kind of mature approach towards life. I'd get sick and tired of her mom persona and fed up with her press games. One minute she's calling up the press and the next she's testifying in city hall about how the press is too intrusive. She's so determined to be a victim and it's tiring.

i know what you means about j garner. to me, katie holmes is the same. without the famous ex-husbands nobody will be hearing about them for years now. but about garner i mean the comments saying she 'staged' showing herself doing the whole thing and his unflattering pics in car! good on her, i say!

thanks for your take about k rutherford. as old people say you must be careful who have children with!

as for jolie what she's doing (at least trying) is awful to her kids. i dont doubt that has more to do with his cheating than drinking problem. :akasha:

i think kelly is daughter of divorced parents like jolie. iirc i read some comments saying that when was going on the custody fight.

@Kuei Fei
i think only woman ben a ever respected was gwyneth p! he used said she was grounded and not impressed by it all (parties, drinking et all).

but jen garner is obviously no stupid next to paltrow and jlo!

Jen was 'smart' in the sense that she got knocked up by Ben and finagled a shotgun wedding out of him. I get fed up with how she acts to breathlessly childish; as for Gwen, I think she was a bit too much of a snot. Now Jen is megabucks rich with his kids, but I am certain that she won't get many meaty roles to have a real career. In agreement with you about Katie Holmes, if not for Tom, she would be a nonentity. Jen better get used to being on the Hollywood sidelines.

Definitely be careful who you have kids with! Jolie had red flags all over her, I think Kelly did too but again I'm less familiar with her. Affleck also had red flags galore (gambling & drinking (& women) have always been his vices, hard to live with that as spouse).

It really drives me up the wall when people like this try to poison the kids against the other party and try to have access and custody taken away. That's as heartless as it gets and when someone tries or does this, I just can't find that person one bit endearing.

These people are so rich, I don't understand why they do this. They have the resources (i.e. money hence my rich comment) to create the perfect post-divorce utopia for their kids: buy a huge house, or better yet an estate with 2 houses (needn't be next to each other in the sense that you see what goes on in the house (dating post-divorce etc would be awkward) but close proximity) or neighbouring houses (an estate would share money, neighbouring houses would maybe keep a cleaner financial slate), so the kids have both parents right there, can have 2 homes but don't have to feel like they move between 2 worlds because of the very close proximity. Send the kids to therapy so they aren't too scarred and don't badmouth the other parent in front of the kids. I realize that divorce would still be hard of course, but for the sake of the kids I think this is not only doable, but a pretty nifty solution. Even "normal" parents with not so much money can do this, and some actually do do this! Living on the same street and similar and some rich folks also do this and it makes all the difference for the kids.

But no, some gotta be greedy and nasty and try to do the most damage on the ex and the poor joint kids, for what? Some maniac ego trip?
I don't understand this, at all.

Some of them might be from broken homes, but that should give them the vantage point of trying to make it right and learn from their parents' mistakes, not make it the worst it could ever be - for everyone involved.

I think Paltrow gets too much flack for her privileged life, at least she made something of herself, her own career. Jen on the other hand, I do not like how she is so determined to know nothing of the world, despite the fact that she has surely lived it to the full. She keeps acting like she is fresh off the farm and has never set foot outside of a convent until she married Ben in an arranged match. Gwyneth and JLO at least own their wider experiences.

You know, McCain in my view was a genuine patriot; he served and was tortured and chose to stay with his comrades when he had a chance to get out. He then voted according to conscience, not party lines, and continued to serve even when dying. That takes true American guts and devout patriotism.

Secret document reveals that celebrity tax avoiders are BLACKLISTED from getting knighthoods under traffic light system run by honours committee who David Beckham called a 'bunch of c***ts'
Celebrities who use tax avoidance schemes are being prevented from getting knighthoods and other honours, it was claimed last night.
Nominees have their tax affairs analysed by senior tax officials who assign a rating to each which is then sent to the honours committee and the prime minister, the Times reported.
A document seen by the newspaper details how each nominee is rated using a 'traffic light system,' with green for low risk, amber for medium and red for high.
'Poor tax behaviour is not consistent with the award of an honour,' the memo between HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the Cabinet Office notes.
Last year leaked emails suggested David Beckham was denied a knighthood when the taxman intervened.
The footballer and former England captain, who invested in a scheme challenged by HMRC, is said to have referred to the honours committee as 'a bunch of c***s.'
And he also allegedly wrote 'everything is and was above board,' in response to a message indicating he had been flagged by the taxman.

Michelle Kwan sells love nest with ex Clay Pell for $3.99M... after he blindsided her with divorce
17 months after her politician husband Clay Pell blindsided her by filing for divorce, two-time Olympic medalist Michelle Kwan has sold their Rhode Island love nest for $3.99M.
The estranged couple originally bought the four-bedroom, 100-year-old Palladian-style villa dubbed 'Casa Del Sol' back in 2014 for $1.5M before totally renovating the Newport estate.
According to the Providence Journal, the 38-year-old retired figure skater took sole ownership of the house in July 2017 after they both cited 'irreconcilable differences' for the split.

Me too. Unfortunately for her that the judges preferred jumpers as opposed to an overall skater like her that brought a beautiful balance of artistic and technical ability. From then on, jumpers with little to no artistic abilities are rewarded top marks in both artistic and technical just because they did one or two jumps more. Now look at the mess that figure skating has become with the confusing scoring and the boring routines that only have jumps and little to no artistic elements.  :bored:  YouTube’s great to relive skating’s past glories as those kinds of skaters like Michelle, Katerina Witt, Scott Hamilton, kirt Browning, Stéphane Lambiel to name a few that brought personally, grace, sex appeal, fun, technical and artistic elements to the ice that made watching skating fun and exciting.

Stronger together - or just richer? David Beckham REFUSED to take part in Vogue cover photo shoot as sources say he is unhappy Victoria is making the children famous and is now househunting in Miami
The proposal — a cover of British Vogue to celebrate ten years of the Victoria Beckham brand — must have seemed irresistible.
Here was a chance to lap up the prestige of the fashion world’s bible, run by new editor Edward Enninful, whom Posh sees as a friend.
What could possibly go wrong?
What indeed.
Yesterday this potentially superlative piece of PR collapsed into a widely ridiculed publicity misfire which may be the final blow to the already-reeling Brand Beckham.
The cover image, which showed Victoria with the couple’s four children, presented her as a single mother — most certainly not laying those marriage rumours to rest.
Worse was to come inside, with Victoria, 44, opting for bizarre corporate-speak to describe her marriage to former football star David, 43.
Although the magazine has yet to hit the newsstands, on Monday Vogue released a series of quotes from its interview with Victoria to whet its readers’ appetites. In one, Victoria said: ‘We both realise that we are stronger together than we are as individuals.
‘Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago?
‘It’s all about the family unit. We are much stronger the six of us, than we would be if we were individuals. We respect that family bond, and that is key.’
She will, of course, have had lots of time to think about and formulate what she wanted to say about her marriage.
However, saying they are ‘stronger together’ — and by implication richer (‘would either of us be in the position that we are in now’) —rather fails to prove that the marriage is in great shape. Wouldn’t it have been simpler just to say: ‘Actually, we still love each other’?
And the insistence on mentioning the six of them and the ‘family bond’, while very sweet, again fails to address the thorny question of what kind of shape the marriage is really in.
Naturally, in this age of social media whirlwinds, there has been an immediate and resoundingly negative verdict, with thousands of online readers pouring scorn on Victoria’s choice of words — and on David’s absence from her moment of front cover glory.
Wouldn’t it have been simpler just to say: ‘Actually, we still love each other’?
The reaction was perhaps heightened because only last week some well-timed paparazzi photos of her nuzzling up to David on Elton John’s yacht were published.
Again, thousands derided them as a publicity stunt, intended to paper over the apparent cracks in their 19-year union.
That her husband has now seemingly decided not to pose with her on the cover of Vogue (with family dog Olive standing in, and all four children showing their support) makes it all the worse.
So how on earth did the Beckhams drop the Goldenball?
It’s doubly curious because each Beckham has their own PR adviser — David has Simon Oliveira while Victoria has Jo Milloy.
They are said to be paid £10,000 a month each to preserve and burnish Brand Beckham’s image. Surely they must have had a hand in this high-profile media venture?
Maybe they did, because tellingly, a second press release was issued by Vogue on Tuesday. In the second one, all statements about the marriage — including ‘stronger together’ — were taken out.
Sources suggested yesterday that there was ‘panic’ and ‘blame’ in team Beckham over how badly the Vogue interview was playing out.
A spokesman for Vogue’s publisher, Conde Nast, said that the changes to the press releases were put in place with the Beckham advisers.
She said: ‘Obviously we work closely with all our talent across the board, so all teams were aware of the words going out, and they were approved in advance.’
Asked whether there had been a problem with the quotes, she said: ‘There was no struggle between Vogue and the Beckham team — everything was agreed.’
So why were the only statements concerning the Beckham marriage suddenly missing? The spokesman said: ‘It is a substantial interview and there is a lot of content. We tailor the releases to reflect that.’
In truth, though, the latest adventure in Vogue seems to have been ill-fated from the start.
Rumours about the end of the marriage culminated in a social media frenzy which reached a peak in June when bookies suspended betting after widespread speculation that the couple were set to divorce.
The gossip was bluntly denied by representatives for both, and the Beckhams moved on.
Within days, Victoria had posted pictures on her Instagram, where she has over 22 million followers, of her cuddling up to her husband at a fashion event for his Kent & Curwen brand. ‘So proud of you @davidbeckham,’ she wrote.
A few weeks later, she posted a picture of the two of them together at a London restaurant for their edding anniversary dinner. ‘19 years, I love you so much,’ she wrote.
However, the already planned Vogue shoot changed. David had insisted that he didn’t want to be on the cover of the shoot, saying that because the interview was to mark his wife’s ten years in fashion, he should steer clear. However, he agreed to be on the subscribers’ cover — a version of the magazine with a different cover which goes to those who subscribe each month.
The result is a black-and-white image featuring David and Victoria alone, both looking severe and with no interaction between them at all.
‘It’s like two strangers sitting near each other in a public place and someone took a photo,’ commented one reader.
Numerous sources suggest that, though David is just as narcissistic as his wife, he doesn’t like the way she constantly posts pictures of the family on social media.
This ‘family’ Vogue shoot apparently made him uneasy.
A source said: ‘David deplores the way that the children are becoming famous . . . it makes him feel really uncomfortable.’
This issue has him on a collision course with his wife, who has already launched the photography career of eldest son Brooklyn, 19, professionally hiring him to shoot her ‘Merch’ sportswear collection.
She has also been building up Brooklyn’s public profile, taking him as her date to numerous red-carpet events, rather than attending with her husband.
It’s the same story with third child Cruz, who in 2016, aged only 11, released a Christmas single under the management of Justin Bieber’s Svengali, Scooter Braun. Victoria made the introductions.
David was keen that it should remain ‘a bit of fun’ and that Cruz, who is now 13, should step back out of the limelight afterwards.
However, Victoria shared a video of her son’s ‘vocal warm-up’ earlier this summer.
In fact, she constantly shares pictures of her family. ‘Love and kisses from us all,’ she wrote under a holiday snap from August 16.
‘A night in with the boys’, she captioned another picture. ‘Kisses from us all and happy summer,’ she wrote alongside a picture which yet again featured the children but not their father.
The Beckhams have used their supposedly perfect family to help engage in a series of commercial deals — but the public have long suspected that their credulity is being abused.
Those with long memories will recall Rebecca Loos, Beckham’s former PA, telling all about a claimed affair with him while he was playing for Real Madrid in 2004.
The Loos eruption was just the first of many about the couple’s alleged problems.
Subsequently, a beautician called Danielle Heath claimed to have had an affair with David, and the couple’s nanny, Abbie Gibson, sold her story, revealing the couple’s poisonous rows and saying Victoria had confided in her that she had considered separating.
Of course, the Beckhams denied these allegations, too.
Since then, there have been allegations over David’s friendships with opera singer Katherine Jenkins and socialites Poppy Delevingne and Lady Mary Charteris.
For the record, all suggestions of impropriety have been denied.
However, even when David and his wife present a united front, such as at the Kent & Curwen fashion show in July, they arrived at the event separately and, in numerous images taken during the afternoon, they are calmly ignoring each other.
Indeed, for all her attempts to control the narrative, you can see why the gossip which insists that Victoria is hanging onto a disenchanted David continues.
In a picture posted to mark her birthday in April, she leans into him with a winsome smile, while he looks oddly stony-faced.
At the Royal Wedding in May, while David beamed broadly to the cheering crowds outside St George’s Chapel in Windsor, Victoria appeared utterly sombre. David flew off immediately afterwards to Japan, with Brooklyn.
The night before the wedding the three of them had been at private members’ club Soho Farmhouse, which is just around the corner from their country house.
A friend who was also at the venue tells me he believes David and Victoria didn’t speak to each other for hours, and that she had a ‘face like thunder'.
At some point during the evening, David ended up buying shots for a stunning brunette. The woman took a selfie with Beckham and later tagged him in a post, writing: ‘Thanks for the shots.’ She has since deleted the picture.
So what does it all mean for David and Victoria? The fact is that they are diverging — in terms of friendships, career and lifestyle.
He is engaged in launching a football team in Miami, and has made multiple trips to the city for meetings, with so many to follow that it is thought he may buy a house there.
Victoria has accompanied him to Miami only once.
This year he has been twice to China on business, and also to Japan, again without his wife, but with his closest friends, sports agent Dave Gardner and his PR Simon Oliveira.
Because both halves of the Beckham brand are constantly on social media, their time spent apart is glaringly obvious.
Victoria spends much of her time at their West London mansion with the children, who are all (aside from Brooklyn) enrolled in private schools in the capital.
Her fashion business is based near their home and must take up a lot of her energies. Earlier this year, 60 staff were laid off and accounts reveal that a very real crisis is in progress.
Victoria Beckham Limited lost a whopping £8.4 million in 2016, according to its last set of accounts. Sadly for Victoria, this is not offset by the sound of ringing tills. Revenues were down £500,000, at £36.4 million, when compared with the previous year.
For a second year running, David dipped into the wealth created by his own companies to shore up his wife’s business, giving her £25 million from his company, DB Ventures, to Victoria Beckham Limited. No wonder she says they are ‘stronger together.’
David loves to escape to enjoy the country life at Soho Farmhouse, hence the couple buying a series of converted barns nearby.
Victoria prefers their Holland Park home, which was refurbished to her specifications, including a huge dressing area, hair salon and nail bar.
Sometimes the parents are with their children separately — Victoria didn’t actually attend Harper’s much-criticised sixth birthday party at Buckingham Palace — organised by Sarah, Duchess of York — last year.
But is any of this enough to finish a marriage which started with such a vulgar flourish in a castle in Ireland in July 1999?
Not unless they want it to — and friends insist they will ‘never’ divorce despite their differences.
In fact, they will be together again soon enough — at a party which is being thrown at Victoria’s Dover Street store next Sunday.
Vogue is the co-host. Will anyone dare to use the words ‘stronger together’? One imagines not.

Victoria has to stop trying to make herself happen; she isn't going to be some kind of actress where she gets parts due to all this exposure and I do not think her husband is happy with the fact that he no longer has a real marriage, but a brand that is surely exhausting.

It's a real shame that she keeps trying SO HARD to be a glamor icon; it's no wonder her husband looks like he's eager to check out of the marriage and basically move on in life without his family being a 'brand.' Victoria isn't getting roles, offers for modeling contracts, and she's already launching her kids into public life without schooling.

TALK OF THE TOWN: Money men put an end to Victoria's Spice Girls comeback... because they fear it would 'cheapen' her fashion brand and see her ridiculed for her singing
Victoria Beckham’s dream of making a comeback with the Spice Girls has been kiboshed by the investors behind her fashion business – because they insist it would ‘cheapen’ her brand.
I can reveal that Posh was hoping to join her former bandmates for their lucrative return to the stage in an attempt to relive the happy memories she shared with them – as well as a substantial cut of the earnings.
However, sources say equity firm NEO Investment Partners, who ploughed £30 million into her company last November, have told her that it would be counter productive to her luxury fashion business, Victoria Beckham Limited.
I understand her investors are nervous that a return to Spice Girl mode for Victoria could see her ridiculed for her singing.
Victoria, 44 – who has admitted she is not a talented singer – has now left the other girls irritated after having to break the news that she won’t be taking part.
It’s also bad news for music mogul Simon Fuller, 58, who has been masterminding the multi-million-pound project since last year.
Fuller is also a major shareholder in Victoria’s fashion business and has even given her space in his London offices to house the business and its employees. My source revealed: ‘Victoria has really happy memories of her time in the Spice Girls. She was globally famous and having the time of her life. It was also, of course, when she met David and they fell madly in love.
‘After years of refusing to take part, she changed her mind when Simon Fuller put the idea again. He has been loyal to her so she agreed to meet the other girls.
‘She was up for it but, after meetings with her investors, she now understands the potential ramifications if she was to take part.
‘It could very much be viewed as tacky and there is a chance that Victoria will destroyed for not being able to sing.’
NEO Investment Partners piled the cash in last year after it emerged that Victoria’s business had lost £8.4 million in 2016.
And earlier this year, she was forced to make a third of her staff redundant.
Despite Posh’s firm refusal, I hear the other girls are not giving up on trying to persuade her.
While Melanie Brown, 43, has been told to stay away as they fear her ‘bolshiness’ wouldn’t help matters, Emma Bunton, 42, Melanie Chisholm, 44, and Geri Horner, 46, are all apparently ‘on her case’ to talk Victoria round.
Good luck with that, ladies!

David's also proping up her vanity project, so I can't blame him if he's exhausted with the crap she's putting out about their marriage and family life. I *despise* that they're still trying to reform the Spice Girls. They had a successful run the last time they toured about 10 years ago, but then abruptly stopped due to Victoria, so why bother trying again now that she's seen as a successful high end clothing designer.  :bored:

I think they should just tour and ignore her and her pretensions; it's no wonder David has checked out of the marriage and I am certain that this stupid vanity project has run its course. She could be so much more if she were not determined to be so posh and would drop that image that was granted to her for the sake of PR. Her so called brand is just that, an image, not anything based on reality.

I wish Beck would walk away and put a stop to a life that is clearly miserable to him.

I am fed up with the airs and graces that women like Posh put on; I am fed up with these non-constructive nobodies pushing some kind of persona brand and I am fed up with how people view her as a victim of her husband's infidelities.

There is never any real justification for infidelity, but Victoria has got to stop trying to make herself happen and be a good wife and mother to her family. She has had a husband who is famous and rich and she has no real problems. Her old persona is something she should have let go of a long time ago.

Do you know what happened to Serena Williams? She was able to lie to the referee and she does not have any fair play!!!

I am going to be mean, but you know in Portugal we have a saying that says this: tell you are o friends and I will tell you what you are...

So, Serena, is a friend of you know who.... so to be able to get what she wants she is able to lie and use all types of excuses! Even after the person said that he was giving instructions to Serena and she is able to put a circus on!!!! With racism, sexism and lies!!!

Bill Cosby's sex scandal led to Geoffrey Owens' working at Trader Joe's after he lost his royalty checks when the show was pulled from syndication
The Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens says Cosby's sex scandal that saw the show pulled from syndication also ceased his royalty checks
 He says once the checks stopped he needed to find other streams of income
Owens says he came up with the idea of working at Trader Joe's to supplement
After the media coverage of his part-time job, Tyler Perry offered him a 10 episode gig on the popular show 'Have and Have Nots' which he accepted  :thumbsup:

Victoria Beckham's fashion label 'loses £4,000 a DAY' as the former Spice Girl marks a decade in the industry with her first London catwalk show
Victoria Beckham's fashion label is losing £4,000 a day as she marks a decade in the industry with her first London catwalk show.
The ex-Spice Girl launched her label Victoria Beckham Limited in 2008 and is celebrating the 10th anniversary of her brand at an elegant event at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Mayfair today.
But accounts filed by the company show it has been far from smooth sailing- with losses of nearly £12 million over an eight year period, which works out at roughly £4,000 a day.
According to The Times, the business has debts of almost £10 million and loans to the business doubled to £12 million during the same year.
This is despite the fashion label managing to generate sales of nearly £169 million over the eight-year period.
However, Naomi Braithwaite, a fashion marketing and branding lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, said running deficits is 'not unique in this industry and not necessarily a sign that she is any the less credible.'
She added: 'It takes a time to build a brand and she is competing with labels that have a very long established history.'
The mother-of-four oversees an empire comprising four clothing lines, more than 400 retail outlets in over 50 countries and offices in London and New York.
At the outset the longtime fashionista, faced a daunting challenge: convincing a competitive and demanding industry that she could make a lasting impression on fickle fashion fans.
Seizing the opportunity to surpass her status as a pop star she has gradually earned widespread recognition, even from fashion luminaries such as Karl Lagerfeld, the creative genius behind Chanel.
Andrew Groves, a professor of fashion design at the University of Westminster said: 'Many saw her as just another example of a celebrity wanting to have a fashion range with no formal fashion training,'
'Through hard work and determination, she has proved those early critics wrong.
He added that Beckham has 'all the right elements to last for many years as a medium-sized designer brand'.
As for the Spice Girls, the most famous girlband in history has reformed for a 13-date tour in 2019 but without 'Posh Spice', who has drawn a line under her first life as a pop star.

Nice designs but very expensive, hence the constant loss of money.

'Welcome home VB!' Stylists praise Victoria Beckham's LFW debut, saying the pop-star-turned-designer's London show proves she's FINALLY a serious contender in the fashion world
'Welcome home VB!' Stylists praise Victoria Beckham's LFW debut, saying the pop-star-turned-designer's London show proves she's FINALLY a serious contender in the fashion world.
Despite the brand losing around £4,000 a day since 2010 - following its 2008 launch - the ex-Spice Girl looked still confident about her eponymous label as she arrived at the event at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Mayfair today.
With star models including Edie Campbell and Stella Tennant opening the show, Beckham's first London Fashion Week showing received a home turf thumbs' up that stretched way beyond her adoring family in the front row.
Fashion author and blogger Simon Glazin said the collection proved that Beckham had really arrived in couture.
He told MailOnline:  'It's good to have Mrs Beckham back in her home town. The capital's fashion elite have been crying out for her to show here, and choosing her 10 year anniversary collection was a good move for her debut in London.'   
Glazin said the VB label had proved a pleasant surprise to those who doubted her in 2008, saying: 'Who would have thought this Spice Girl could go from wearing cheap tacky LBDs to designing ultra modern, ultra feminine sports luxe?'
He added: 'Ten years ago, there was lots of criticism about Victoria’s first collection. It looked too much like this designer, or it was a copy of that one, or there wasn’t much to it.'
'But over the seasons, Victoria has really shown her fashion evolution. Both as a wearer and a designer.'
Elsewhere, Celebrity stylist Lucas Armitage said the star had taken her label in a more intricate direction.
'Her usually unfussy looks have more intricate detailing than we have seen before with sporty buckles and interesting layering.
'The classic staples of a VB are still there, chic simple silhouettes impeccably cut.'
Armitage added that the stand-out piece from the collection walked in Mayfair was Beckham's camel-coloured candy stripe dress with co-ordinating trousers, a look that the stylist thinks will prompt a slew of copycat outfits on the high street.
Fashion commentator Karine Laudort added that the choice of high-profile models was 'amazing' and said the collection is likely to fly off the shelves.
'Victoria Beckham served us with very simple yet effortlessly chic classic silhouettes and fabric.
'Monochrome black and white tones with a dash of and a cowhide prints elegant dresses in various colours and which will be available but in limited quantities, in stores, by next month as they have been extremely popular.
She added: 'Fitted shirts and suits, accompanied with in-built corsets were also a major part of the collection.'
While the collection's success will serve Posh well on this side of the Atlantic, getting into profit as a fashion label isn't easy.
According to The Times, the business has debts of almost £10 million and loans to the business doubled to £12 million during the same year.
This is despite the fashion label managing to generate sales of nearly £169 million over the eight-year period.
However, Naomi Braithwaite, a fashion marketing and branding lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, said running deficits is 'not unique in this industry and not necessarily a sign that she is any the less credible.'

Victoria Beckham plants a kiss on husband David's cheek while their kids show their support on the FROW as she triumphantly takes to the runway following her LFW debut
She recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of her namesake label.

And Victoria Beckham, 44, was overcome with emotion after making her brand's London Fashion Week debut at Mayfair's Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac on Sunday with the support of her husband David, 43, and children; Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven. 
The singer-turned-designer planted a kiss on her long-term love's cheek as she triumphantly took to the runway after showcasing her SS19 collection to the fashion's elite, with her proud parents, Jackie and Anthony Adams, and sister Louise also sitting in the FROW.
Victoria kept to her chic style and donned a pair of sleek black trousers for the occasion with a beige oversized blazer, which she stylishly rolled up to her elbows.
Walking out to applause following her debut LFW show, she quickly spotted her brood on the FROW and rushed towards them to plant a kiss on their cheeks.
It was proud moment for the designer and her family as they all collectively took to their social media channels to give their fans a glimpse of her SS19 collection and share their congrats.
Victoria took to her Instagram story and shared a shot of a bouquet of red roses which featured a card from her family that read: 'Congratulations, we're so proud of you. Love David, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper xxx.'
While David shared a candid clip on his Instagram story of Victoria walking towards them and greeting her family following her successful runway display.
Earlier in the morning, Victoria arrived to the show space looking effortlessly chic in a pair of blue tailored trousers as she made her way inside the venue.
Her form-fitting trousers featured a daring slit placed just above her feet which highlighted her strappy black heels.  The fashionista teamed the vibrant garment with a nude-coloured bodysuit and oversized beige blazer.
Keeping her accessorises to a minimum, she carried her vibrant red handbag under her arm and donned a pair of statement shades. The mother-of-four worked her tresses into a messy low ponytail and sported a neutral beauty look. 
Victoria's appearance comes as she celebrates her namesake fashion label's 10th anniversary.  In a major fashion week shake-up, the British style star has opted to bring her usual catwalk show across the Atlantic to the UK for the first time, swapping NYFW for LFW. 
The show will hosted at Mayfair’s Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, next to the Victoria Beckham flagship store on Dover Street.  The event was streamed live to Piccadilly Circus for all to see.
Meanwhile, David looked utterly dapper in a black tailored suit with a white shirt and black tie. The former football star held onto daughter Harper, who looked adorable in a black dress with a white lace collar, as they exited their car for the grand occasion.
Following suit, teenager Cruz put on a jazzy display in a bold tiger-print shirt with black denim jeans. Victoria's eldest son Brooklyn, 19, was pictured entering the show space, holding onto a camera and clad in his usual dapper thread.
While brother Romeo, 16, looked effortlessly cool in a camouflage shearling-lined jacket, distressed denim jeans and a white T-shirt.
A proud moment for the whole family, Victoria's mother Jackie and father Anthony Adams made their way inside the venue for her LFW debut alongside sister Louise Adams.   
Celebrating the feat, Victoria marked the occasion in the capital by showing off her flexibility in a fun Instagram shot on Friday.
The former Spice Girl pulled off her famous 'leg pose' at the end of the catwalk, lifting her slender leg high up in the air and pulling it forward, as her other leg rested on the ground.
VB's famous leg pose was debuted in March 2016 when she shared a snap of herself  with her perfect pins opening further than a 90 degree angle - and with her stiletto-heeled foot pointed gracefully.
She later joked that her impressive posture was down to ballet. 'It's amazing what you can do in culottes...those ballet classes are paying off! Thank u @edwardbarsamian and @voguemagazine! Kisses from LA x vb,' she wrote.
Reclining casually on a sofa on a luxurious-looking hotel room she looked sensational in a pair of loose-fitting black culottes and a strapless top, giving the illusion of a jumpsuit.
The mother-of-four originally trained as a dance instructor as her family wanted her to have a ‘fall back’ career. She studied tap, jazz and ballet at Laine Theatre Arts in Epsom, Surrey.
Speaking about Posh’s pose, Kirsten McCarron, founder of PureBallet dance classes, said: ‘You need to be dedicated to get results like that. She has done ballet since she was young, which helps, but for great flexibility you really have to stick at it.’
The pose was later copied by stars including Kourtney Kardashian and Amanda Holden.

She really has to give it all up. SOME of her pieces are nice, but on a whole, I would not spend money on an entire collection. I am certain that her husband is irritated at her climbing and she really is not at all someone who is paying any attention to the fact that her marriage is coming apart. Victoria reminds me of Becky Sharp from Vanity Fair; as Becky goes higher, her husband begins to see that he doesn't really mean much of anything to her, of that I am sure. She's being so girlish with him, but more as if he's her daddy and she's his little girl. Truly, David is just her sugar daddy, that is really all.

You know, she has to be one of FEW people in this world who took an assigned persona and is literally living according to it despite the fact that she is not posh. Thing is, she doesn't come from a posh background, she is not posh in the area of being well mannered and genuinely cultured, and most importantly, she is not someone who is selling anything high end. She has been trying to break into the world of haute couture, but she has made the mistake of not putting any real detailed effort into her clothes. None of those clothes are of exceptional quality, none of them are anything special in the area of unique cut, and she forgets that being out of touch isn't how you create something that someone wants to buy. I do not like how she has the GALL to keep up the persona, even though it is clear that her husband is fed up with it.

I do not view adultery as justified or something that can be excused, but I do believe that he is tired of a wife who just mooches off of his money and he has more of a brand rather than a marriage.

Michael Hutchence 'wanted to leave Paula Yates but she couldn't handle it' claims his sister
By REBECCA LAWRENCE FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 14:21 BST, 2 October 2018 | UPDATED: 15:15 BST, 2 October 2018

Michael Hutchence's half-sister Tina has claimed the rocker planned to leave girlfriend Paula Yates before he committed suicide.

The Australian singer was found dead in his hotel room in 1997 with a coroner ruling the death as suicide, despite Paula disputing that he would have taken his own life.

Yet Tina has now claimed that Paula's denial was a result of being unable to cope with the fact that Michael wanted to leave her.    

Former flames: Michael Hutchence's half-sister Tina has claimed the rocker planned to leave girlfriend Paula Yates before he committed suicide

Heartbroken Paula died three years later of an accidental heroin overdose when she was 41, with their daughter Tiger-Lily finding her body.

Speaking to Australian magazine New Idea, Tina said: 'She could not face the fact that she wasn't enough for him.

'He didn't want to live for her. She just couldn't handle it that he'd leave her.'

Speaking out: Tina said 'She could not face the fact that she wasn't enough for him. 'He didn't want to live for her. She just couldn't handle it that he'd leave her'

Tina's comments echo that of Michael's former INXS bandmate Kirk Pengilly, who previously claimed the singer was planning to leave Paula before his suicide.

He told Australian TV show Sunday Night: 'Just prior to his death, that week or so – what he told me, he had a plan in place to basically split up with Paula.'

Tina claimed last month that Michael began his downward descent after being 'vilified' for appearing to break-up Paula's marriage to Sir Bob Geldof.

Tom Cruise to be dropped from Jack Reacher role after two films because the 5ft 7in actor is TOO SHORT, says action hero's creator
He won plaudits for playing Jack Reacher in two blockbuster thrillers.

But Tom Cruise has been axed from the all-action role – because he simply doesn’t measure up.

British author Lee Child, who wrote the books on which the films are based, says that at 5ft 7in Cruise is far too short to play the former US military policeman.

In the 23 Jack Reacher novels, the hero is described as a physically imposing 6ft 5in with ‘hands the size of dinner plates’.

Child says that after the 2012 film Jack Reacher – which also starred Rosamund Pike – and the 2016 sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, ‘tens of thousands’ of fans complained that Mission Impossible star Cruise, 56, was wrong for the role.

So further adaptations of his novels will be on the small screen – with a new, much taller Reacher.

Child told the BBC: ‘I really enjoyed working with Cruise. He’s a really nice guy. But ultimately the readers are right. The size of Reacher is really important and a big component of who he is.

‘The idea is that when Reacher walks into a room, you’re all a little nervous just for that first minute. And Cruise, for all his talent, didn’t have that physicality. So there won’t be any more movies with Tom Cruise. Instead we’re going to take it to Netflix or something like that. Long-form streaming television, with a completely new actor.

‘And I want all those readers who were upset about Tom Cruise to help me out – participate in choosing the right actor for the TV series.

‘We’re rebooting and starting over, and we’re going to try to find the perfect guy.'

Priyanka Chopra's first wedding gift is extravagant $80K earrings from luxury French jeweler, given by Nick Jonas' mother

Denise Jonas, Nick's mother, gifted her daughter-in-law Priynanka with a pair of earrings from French luxury jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels, which cost a whopping $79,500, according to The Bombay Times.

The happy couple tied the knot in the traditional Mehendi ceremony on Saturday, where Denise, a.k.a. 'Mama Jonas,' gave Priyanka the earrings as her first wedding gift.

Priyanka and Nick will hold a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony on Sunday, at the Umaid Bhawan palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan this weekend, followed by two wedding receptions in Mumbai and Delhi.

The couple have set up a pop-up-shop-like room full of Indian designer clothes at the palace, according to the popular Bollywood gossip site PinkVilla.

Priyanka partnered with Amazon to create a registry guide, in return for a hefty charity donation, and after she said Nick shut down a Tiffany's to pick out her ring, she held her bridal shower at the Blue Box Cafe in TIffany & Co.'s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

Meanwhile, Nick's bachelor party last month featured sponsorships from the bicycle-share company Lime and the Stolichnaya offshoot Elit Vodka.

At Sunday's Hindu wedding, Priyanka will reportedly wear an outfit by the highly regarded designer Sabyasachi Mukherji, who was glimpsed arriving in Jodhpur on Friday.

Her Christian ceremony, which was officiated by Nick's pastor father Paul, saw her decked out in Ralph Lauren - a romantic touch, considering they both represented that fashion house at the 2017 Met Gala more than a year before their engagement.

This is reputedly the first time Ralph Lauren has put together a wedding dress for a bride who is not a member of his family.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6451123/Priyanka-Chopras-wedding-gift-extravagant-80K-earrings-luxury-French-jeweler.html

This sems to now be the trend for tacky celebrities; sponsored wedding ceremonies coplete ith pr for the companies. Ralph Lauren must be pushing into the Asian market with tis tacky affair as it seems the US market's drying up for him. These two have been working with him since 2017 as they went to the Met Ball dressed in his clothes.  :bored:

Newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas skip the honeymoon to focus on business at app launch party in New Delhi after shock claim marriage is a sham
But it's not quite time to relax for newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas as the couple attended the Bumble launch party in New Delhi on Wednesday.
It was reported in October that Priyanka had invested in the dating and networking app and would be advising on its expansion into India.
Meanwhile, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, who is engaged to Nick's brother Joe, has angrily hit out at a publication for calling Nick and Priyanka's relationship fake.

Calling The Cut's article 'disgusting' in a tweet on Wednesday, the actress joined many others who expressed their shock at the 'sexist, racist and xenophobic' opinion piece.

The article, which has now been taken down from the website, was titled 'Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?' and was posted with the tweet 'That's right: Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Sunday, December 1, and I'll tell you why I think so.'

Priyanka and Nick became engaged after two months of dating.

They first met at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in February 2017 but they didn't start dating until May this year, making it Instagram official in June.

They got engaged on July 27 in Greece.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6464037/Newlyweds-Priyanka-Chopra-Nick-Jonas-skip-honeymoon-attend-Bumble-launch-party.html

Very fake to me. The wedding ceremonies were sponsored events as Ralph Lauren and this dating app is pushing into the Asian market. What better way to get maximum attention in the region by putting on an over the top 3-5 day wedding extravaganza?  :cookie:
To pay for the rest of the tacky do, they made deals with People and Hello magazines as well as others in India. It was a very tacky affair regardless and very few people will believe that the marriage is real and has staying power.

What is it these days with these celebrities and their feminist BS? None of them get to where they are without doing things that would make the devil blush and frankly I am fed up with hearing about how evil men are from them. My father has been the only one in my life keeping me on track and showing me the unconditional love and patience I have always needed and frankly as a result, my view of men must be very different from theirs. Men in that industry are sexist, but these women go into that field knowing what is expected and frankly none of them are forced into it. They are free to walk away.

TALK OF THE TOWN: Victoria Beckham faces £1,000 fine from Companies House for failing to submit her latest accounts

TALK OF THE TOWN: Victoria Beckham faces £1,000 fine from Companies House for failing to submit her latest accounts

Victoria Beckham is facing a £1,000 fine from Companies House for failing to submit her latest accounts – and the charge will double unless she hands them over by the end of the year.

It was revealed last year that her fashion company, Victoria Beckham Limited, lost £8.4 million in 2016 and £4.6 million the year before that. The latest accounts cover 2017, before Posh’s new team, including industry veteran Ralph Toledano, were appointed in the hope of turning around the firm’s fortunes.

While Posh, 44, is clearly a fine model for her clothes – she’s seen here looking typically stylish in one of her black dresses alongside Penelope Cruz at a British Fashion Awards party last week – she’s not such a whizz at the money side of things.

'I will be coming out with a skincare line. I've been working on it for a long time because I don't want to put [just] anything out,' she began, according to Refinery29.

'I get that question a lot, especially as I get older. I want it to be something that encompasses all the things I've learned and all the secrets I have. And it doesn't have anything to do with needles,' she pointed out.

Is there a reason she has no interest in making sure her business is running properly? Her husband might at some point get fed up with it and tell her he won't be footing the bills for her mess ups. She has more than enough time on her hands to make sure that things are done right and I am hopeful that she will have the self respect to shut it down and just be ornamental. She's no businesswoman and she is not someone who is going to actually going to win over the haute couture crowd. She needs to stop being such a try hard and accept her limitations and enjoy her fortunate life.

^ Like someone else we discuss, I think.

But anyway re: her husband. Word is that they live entirely separate lives, and that divorce would be bad for their brand. If the clothing line folds, I think their personal news will  probably come out. I don't think she really cares to keep it going. Really and truly, if they divorced she could become wife #3/4 for some z-list European noble, and finally be Lady SomethingorOther, which of course will somehow become Lady Victoria in the press.

I think Victoria can become something posh for the press, but the nobility, that is something different. Aside from a divorce settlement, she wouldn't offer anything other than aspirations and I am certain that she would end up being a huge headache for an aristo who just wants a routine, quiet life.

I blame David for cheating, there's no excuse, but after a while, I would get beyond fed up with her posturing and fed up with her constant posing. She can't or won't pose naturally or eat actual food or settle down into actually putting some sincere effort into actually making good fashions that people want to wear. Thing is, that she doesn't understand that the filthy rich already have enough and no one got rich starting out by serving the wealthy exclusively. She could have marketed her clothes to people on the middle income to lesser income folk and she would do great in her own right, but she takes herself so seriously and clearly has no idea that she's just a joke. She should spend more time getting her husband on some kind of productive track and start being more of a mother and stop pushing her kids into a spotlight that is often unforgiving.

She refuses to eat a hearty meal (no one is THAT naturally slender) and refuses to hang out with women who are actually eager to be happy, and prefers to social climb (wearing black to a royal wedding was moronic in the extreme), and I am certain that she should do the Spice Girls tour since that band is the reason she has all she does. Being plain Victoria didn't put her on the world stage and if she is going to save her marriage, she has to let go of her poshy persona.

I never understood how VB got to be such a player in the fashion industry to begin with.  Without Beckham, I don't think we'd even be talking about her.  On the whole, tho, they seemed to me to make quite the toxic pair.  Poor kids, tho.

She is just freeloading off of him. She's no different than the other WAGS and second, she is going to lose her husband at some point. I feel for how she's shoving her sons into the spotlight before they are quite aware of what they're getting pushed into.


Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II
Post by: HRHOlya on December 18, 2018, 06:16:40 am
^^^ & ^^ So so true.
I think she became such a player in fashion only because David's looks changed so much thanks to her: she dressed and styled him (supposedly, likely it was stylists); then the "partner look" they'd do: same hair, same clothes etc and that's imo how they became such a "brand". Nothing but glorified monkeys from a zoo everyone loved to oggle and now we have this.

^ Blame also David, why isn't he divorcing her? I keep reading that he impregnated some woman and has another daughter, supposedly Harper's teacher which is why Harper had to change schools. And that he supposedly lives mostly in Miami. Alone (and with whatever woman he's shtupping).

Them pushing their kids into the spotlight is also such bad parenting. We all know how the combination kids & limelight usually ends. No excuse anymore for idiot adults pushing their kids into the spotlight.

And no, no one is naturally skeletal. Vic in her early Spice Girls days is more her natural figure, she was gorgeous. I don't know why women love the emaciated skeleton look so much. Even worse, Vic makes clothes in only her size. Her former figure is already "plus size" aka "fat". smh.

I wonder why David doesn't leave her as well. He married someone who was healthy figured, seemed like a ton of fun, and was part of one of the most successful and FUN girl groups in the music industry. He married her since being poshy was a persona and she was seemingly just a ton of fun and full of life. If he is that unhappy, being part of some 'brand' isn't going to make things better since everyone thinks of him and his wife as a pair of moronic pretentious dolts. People are sick of them and whatever he had as an athlete, he doesn't have 'it' anymore mainly since he went from being amazing on the soccer field to being a *fool* celebutante.

Team Beckham nets £30m payday: But it's just David's business paying dividends as Victoria's fashion label continues to struggle
The couple, along with former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller (pictured below), have shared dividends of £29.85m over the past two years, accounts filed over this weekend reveal.

The dividends have come from Beckham Brand Holdings, the holding company for Victoria’s luxury fashion brand and for David’s business, which makes money from licensing his name and image.

However, documents reveal that the dividends all came out of David’s business.

David and Victoria Beckham have each had a near-£10million dividend from their company – even though her luxury fashion empire has run up big losses.

The couple, along with former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller (pictured below), have shared dividends of £29.85m over the past two years, accounts filed over this weekend reveal.

Loss and Becks: David’s company made a multi-million profit while has wife’s firm remains in the red

Both David and Victoria, now in their early forties, have aimed to cash in on their youthful fame, but with very different outcomes so far.

Known as Goldenballs in his playing years, 43-year-old David has displayed a Midas touch since.

He remains one of the world’s most recognisable faces and has made millions by cashing in on his image through advertising deals, including ads for Haig Club whisky and male skincare products.

But Victoria’s clothing business has remained stubbornly in the red, though her designs have been acclaimed in fashion circles.

Despite their differing commercial fortunes, both Beckhams have benefited from the latest dividends.

Beckham Brand Holdings paid an £18.75million dividend in 2017 to its three shareholders, who are David, Victoria and XIX Management, one of Fuller’s companies.

The accounts also state it paid another £11.1million after its most recent financial year-end, on December 31, 2017.

That adds up to nearly £30million, or nearly £10million apiece for the trio.

However, documents reveal that the dividends all came out of David’s business.

His company, DB Ventures, made a profit before tax of £26.5million in the year to December 31, 2017, according to accounts just filed at Companies House.

That is in sharp contrast with Posh’s firm, Victoria Beckham Limited, which made a loss of just over £10million. Her brand has a shop in London’s swanky Mayfair and a second flagship store in Hong Kong.

It is not unusual for luxury brands to be loss-makers for a number of years after they first start up and the former Posh Spice appears to have no worries about running out of funds.

Victoria, 44, last year received £30million of backing from private investment firm NEO Investment Partners.

Her venture is also being supported by David, whose business has ‘historically provided working capital for sister company Victoria Beckham Ltd’. She is understood to be more concerned about long-term investment in her business than in turning a quick profit.

Basically because David's business is so successful, she'll keep relying on him to bail her out.  bignono

I feel bad for the kids because they seem to be heading down the celebrity route where they're just living off of their parents fortune. The oldest one, Brooklyn's doing that. He seems to have no job or direction. He's just "dating" moels or actressesand documening nonsense on social media that the DM loves to do articles on.

She really is using him, I can see that much. Without his 'name' she would be just another soccer wife and frankly I would be frustrated if I had to keep bailing her out all the time. It is clear that she doesn't really want him as a man or husband, but as a social and monetary sugar daddy. He clearly is just being used as a bank account and as a way for Victoria to feed her hunger to be a Somebody despite not accomplishing anything, not even advanced schooling. Her kids are on their way towards becoming vapid brats who are not at all interested in doing anything beyond a token education and token one thing or another. He seems to go along with it, but is unfulfilled.

She was; she was part of the most famous girl band on the planet during that time and she seemed like a well mannered young woman. I do not think she's much of a catch now. Before she seemed bubbly and part of a fun band and living a great life. Then it's like she changed into someone else. Mind you, I am overthinking this and I think this marriage is on its last legs.

^Sounds like the only thing holding it together is the community property laws of CA.  Beckham could lose a great deal and assume half of her debt with this divorce. 


Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II
Post by: Kuei Fei on December 25, 2018, 05:33:25 pm
If I were Becks I would leave her, assume half the debt, pay it off, and he could still build a huge fortune. Second, they were married in Britain and if he's in Florida, he wouldn't have to deal with CA community property laws. Third, I would have left her the minute she started asking me to fund her fashion house ideas. No one actually would buy her stuff by the dozen and while she has some nice pieces, she has no business asking her husband to foot her bills and pay off her debts like she's a little girl who fancies herself too good to take a risk and invest her own time(something she has on her hands in plenty), money (I'm sure she still has some residuals), and energy. I think the main reason their marriage is such a mess is because she treats him like an ATM or business partner, which is unequal since she doesn't bring home the bacon or really seem to understand what it is that he wants, which is a wife/mother. He could get business partnerships anywhere and yet for some reason, she thinks she is the reason he is a success and that is not true. He was already just as famous, wealthier in his own right, and he was someone who was still working. She just latched on for the ride and suddenly started turning his life into a name brand and their marriage into  a partnership. Men don't marry business partners, it never works out at all. It's not like she seems to be providing a real home, or a real marriage, nor does she seem to be steering their kids in a healthy direction that will develop them into becoming fully fledged members of society.

^ I see that differently, I grew up with viewing all property as joint, so it's their money and he's not funding her, they are in it together. Esp after all these years. Also she was the making of brand Beckham, had it not been for her, the whole hype around him wouldn't have happened. She was quite instrumental in the building of their empire. Even had she been just a classic WAG who pops out kids and doesn't work at all I still wouldn't say that one party funds the other. I have more conservative views on marriage I guess, more old-fashioned, as I grew up like that.

The most famously known reason for why they don't divorce is that brand Beckham would be in the bin. It's not simply splitting the assets, it's that their jointly built brand would die over night. That's the major issue for them. The whole money and everything they bring in is because they are married, a divorce would still (to this day) hurt them both in every way - image/ PR/ brand, endorsements, contracts etc etc. Splitting the assets is their smallest issue.

I think the marriage is a mess because he can't keep it in his pants. She's like Kate, and so many other women who model themselves into puppets physically their husbands like. Vic always goes back to her brunette hair (which suits her better anyway) because Dave likes brunettes. Kate starves herself because of Jecca and Diana bleached her hair blonde because Chuck liked blondes (I always wondered why she didn't go darker once they split/ divorced, because she went blonde for him). Vic's done everything to please him and he walks all over her. I think that's the problem when one spouse bends over backwards to please the other, you become a piece of carpet the other wipes their dirty shoes off on and walks all over. Each has to please the other with boundaries, but not one servant the other deity.

^ Yeah, they have so many reasons to keep the marriage going. I think they reached and agreement years ago and are having a classic marriage: putting on a show, marriage on paper, but seperate lives behind closed doors.

I just remembered also the Becks are gunning like crazy for a knighthood or any other gong. Vic wants to be called "lady" and Dave is dying for it just as much. These two aren't divorcing in a million years, and when they do you know that something big broke the camel's back. Pigs might fly sooner, but we shall see.

No one thought Charles and Di would drove, or the Yorks; or even other people who have taken us by surprise. I've learned to be broadminded and put nothing past anyone.

I think the only thing holding them together is mutual ambition and that is in my view the one thing that is their weakness. They get invites to royal weddings, but do not realize that if WK&HM were royal in the real sense of the word, that they would not at all be at a point where the Beckhams would have any chance at invites to a royal wedding. Charles and Diana's wedding was as royal as one could get and even top tier celebs wouldn't have dreamed of being invited to their wedding. It's this ambition that is killing them and I am dead sure that there will come a point when it all comes apart. This amount of ambition they have will never come to a good end.

Victoria, for reasons I do not know, must believe that a title will make things easier, that it will transform her into what she aspires to be, but I think it will only make things harder. She'll be a new title, not old and established and second, I believe she is unaware that there is no reason for her to be invited to the top parties she hankers after. That ambition of hers will lead her to trying to bully her way into the ducal estates and marry her kids off to titles like Carole, but I believe that her and her husband's ambition will just get worse and worse.

I AM certain that she's at a point where she's unable to handle any kind of life where she isn't hanging around the titled. Its' like that ambition they have is just eating away at them and infecting them, for lack of a better way of putting it.

Inside the Beckham Christmas: Instagram scrolling, £250 worth of tequila, vast carafes of red wine and 'Uncle' Elton John's VERY kooky glasses... a peek at the superstar family's festivities
By Ciara Farmer For Mailonline

They document family life on various social media platforms.
And Christmas was no different for the Beckham clan as they littered Instagram with a host of snaps from their cosy festivities, in which they united the whole family for a boozy day of fun and frolics.
Joining parents Victoria, 44, and David, 43, and the kids Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven, were Victoria's side of the family, including her sister Louise and mum Jackie and dad Tony.

Living it up: Christmas was no different for the Beckham clan as they littered Instagram with a host of snaps from their cosy family festivities, in which they united the whole family for a boozy day of fun and frolics
Feeling super festive, Victoria and David were living it up in classic style as they sat at a long table among their nearest and dearest while sharing a host of snaps from the big day.

The former footballer kicked off the online activity as he shared a hilarious duo of snaps in which he sported the same glasses as family friend Elton John, while adding the caption: 'Merry Christmas Uncle Elton'.

With his famed penchant for kooky glasses, it seemed Elton had gifted the specs to his pal - resulting in the hilarious shirtless selfie in which he jokingly posed with a pout and the tinsel wrapped glasses.
Known for their love of pricey booze, it is little wonder the couple were drinking up a storm - including glugging two bottles of £125 tequila and carafes of red wine.

Didn't I say that David would get stick of funding his dolt wife's projects and get fed up with her as well? I told all of you guys, but all of you scoffed. I also do think he's well and truly done with his marriage and I am dead sure that any kind of marriage based on a partnership is in fact doomed. Men do not marry their business partners and they do not want to stay married to someone who isn't growing or maturing or TRYING to be a spouse/human being. If she were less posturing and more a person, her marriage would be on solid ground. It's  the beginning of the end of one of the most annoying 'brand name' marriages ever.

David and Victoria Beckham 'are keen to put on a united front by throwing a lavish £30,000 New Year's Eve party'... after THOSE divorce rumours
The former footballer, 43, and Spice Girl, 44, are said to have invited twenty of their closest friends and family to a showstopping bash, held at their Cotsworld estate, according to The Sun.
It appears that the pair, who were rocked by divorce rumours earlier this year, are keen on putting the speculation behind them, as a source revealed: 'David was keen to put on a united front, and show the world they’re happy after a tough few months.'
Ending their year on a high note, David and Victoria are said to be organising a lavish party to showcase just how strong they are.  :tehe:
According to the publication, the married pair are spending '£10,000 on catering, £5,000 on booze, £4,000 on fireworks and £4,000 on security.'
The fashion designer is also said to be splashing out £5,000 on her outfits for the occasion, including a dress for her seven-year-old daughter Harper.

Howard Donald reveals Jason Orange's departure from Take That 'hit him the hardest'... as fans are devastated he is missing from 30th anniversary show
Howard Donald reached out to his ex-bandmate Jason Orange on Twitter, after fans expressed their sadness he was missing from Take That's 30th anniversary show.
The singer, 50, wrote an emotional tribute to the 48-year-old on Thursday night, following the screening of the We've Come A Long Way film on BBC.
After watching the show back, Howard said Jason's shock exit in 2014 'hit him the hardest' as he told fans he hoped Jason was happy now.
The group recently revealed they were desperate for Jason to feature in special documentary, but were left disappointed when their calls weren't returned.
It comes after Howard claimed Jason vanished without a trace during his appearance on Loose Women earlier this month.
The musician revealed his former bandmate no longer takes his phone calls or emails, despite their history together in the chart-topping band.
However, Howard insisted Jason going 'off the grid' was 'good for him' because it was 'where he wants to be' — that is 'a million miles away'.

How many times have they renewed their vows? Twice as far as I know.

They took their original vows when they got married, then renewed their vows after the Rebecca Loos affair, then a further time. (Can't remember why). This tells its own story.


My parents were married for 60 years before one of my parents died. They only needed one set of vows. That was taken on the day they married. They didn't need to keep renewing their vows every few years. They carried their vows in their hearts. And honoured them. And lived them, throughout their lives.



If you're both happy, you don't need to keep displaying a banner saying you're happy. This farce is boring most folks, including me.
Yes, I feel sorry for the children, but do we need to read about it all the time? I do wish both of them would crawl away so we wouldn't need to keep reading about them. Divorce if that's what they want but this incessant gossip about them is tiresome, IMHO.

I think David is shutting his marriage down.

Usually once a man gets fed up with paying his wife's pet projects and asinine causes, it means he's tired of being married to her as well. We see this all the time in the news, the wealthier and more powerful spouse stops indulging the wife financially and pus his foot down about her shopping sprees, it means the marriage is fragile. I'm dead sure that David might in fact be fed up with "Brand Beckham" and will end up divorcing Victoria and leading a more carefree life free from being part of a brand. At some point I'm certain that he's tired of being part of a brand more than a marriage and is tired of his marriage being marketed instead of lived. He has lost patience and I'm sure that Victoria is panicked about losing her precious bank account and of course, easy social status among the WAG set.

She won't starve, but she will struggle to live a life unable to have her husband paying for her airs and graces and pretensions.

Title: Re: Celebrity Gossip II
Post by: Kuei Fei on December 31, 2018, 12:42:55 am
Thanks LL; from what I've read, Victoria has spent her entire married life being a pretentious snot who thought she was too good for the other WAGS and wouldn't realize or face the fact that she wasn't better than them, she was just married to the most famous player. That isn't something that she accomplished in her own right and second, I will NEVER condone cheating or messing around, but I do think that David got fed up along the times when she just wouldn't let up and let him have a marriage and have a wife. Snubbing the other wives and dieting to such an extreme and dropping so much weight was just what began to damage her marriage. Her entire time with David has been one round of exhausting promotion after another and I'm sure it is tiring and exhausting and very draining to deal with having to be an icon that is to able to be a man. His entire marriage has been this relentless social chase and I wonder if David is done with it and ready to drop the social climbing and ready to break from Brand Beckham for good. He's not going to get a peerage, he will not be getting

If I were David, I would be exhausted from funding Victoria's utterly impractical fashion business, her posturing, her nonstop dieting, her relentless pursuit of fame and even more fortune (despite being part of a fabulously wealthy marriage) and her childishness. You would think that at some point she would drop the posh posturing and would just STOP trying to be haute couture at a K-Mart level of talent and be happy with all she has. I wager she would in fact be doing better if she had marketed her stuff to middle class consumers and had the decency to stop mooching and start mothering her kids into a better way of life. A divorce would hurt the kids, but turning those kids into celebutantes would do a lot more damage and put them on a very toxic path. I wonder if David's decision to do this has to do with the fact that Victoria is trying to turn his daughter into an Instagram version of a style influence prompted him to put a stop to her BS. It's one thing to send a son into the celeb world of pointlessness, it's another to do that to a daughter, that is sick exploitation and can wreck a daughter's mind. If I were a father I would have put an immediate stop to any of that BS. Bad enough Victoria clearly has eating issues, no need to damage the daughter as well.

I said it a million times that at some point, he would run out of patience and would want out of this, that at some point he would be fed up and want a REAL wife and a REAL marriage and REAL family life. I know he railed about wanting a knighthood (and I myself think titles are pretty cool), but I wonder how much of it is him and how much of it is his wife's yearnings to be titled. I mean really, why is it that Victoria wants that so bad?

David Beckham’s 'cash-strapped' sister Lynne is forced to sell her possessions online (including paving slabs and football boots)... even though he's worth around £339m
    Lynne has been selling paving slabs, tobacco, children's clothing, football boots and baby's blankets online
    In 2011, she sold her wedding dress for £5.50 on eBay after her marriage failed
    David paid around £250k for the Romford home that Lynne still lives in around ten years ago - it's now worth around £470k
    It is thought David and Lynne still talk to one another regularly  
    In 2010, David was upset to learn that Lynne was on benefits  
    The sportsman hosted a new year's eve party which cost a reported £30k

Former American Idol co-host Brian Dunkleman reveals he's been an Uber driver since 2016... as his divorce and child custody case wages on
Nearly 17-years later, and caught in the middle of a nasty divorce and child custody case with his estranged wife, Brian Dunkleman revealed he makes his living these days as an Uber driver in financial papers obtained by TMZ.
The 47-year old claimed that he has been with the ride-sharing company since March 2016, and that earns about $800 a week by working 45 hours a week.
In the court documents, Dunkleman said he has about $2,000 in his checking account, and that he pays $1,500 in rent per month and his expenses total $1,605 each month.
During the grand finale Dunkleman said he found out from his former bosses that he was about to be fired before he quit the show.
'They informed me that they had decided that the show would be better served with just one host,' he told the Huffington Post. 'And that I was not that host. But I announced I was quitting before they could tell me. So, I didn’t know that [at the time].

Furthermore, I don't think DB wouldn't help if she asked, given they 'talk regularly.'

I think the real reason no one wants to host the Oscars is because there are no new ideas and the audience is not easy to please. Too many of these actors and actresses are not at all being amenable to a fun night out, to honoring the award, and I for one would have better things to do than put in a genuine, sincere effort and only end up having to put up with their condescension and self importance. I mean, hosts and hostesses are under a lot of pressure to entertain and the entertainment is getting more and more of a pointless tack-fest and more adolescent. The dresses are vulgar and badly cut while the people there are no longer relevant to the movie industry. We have pop stars, rappers, and other media personalities that are in fact not at all connected to the industry. Lastly, too many celebs want to talk about politics, or politicize their speech, or do other asinine things that just ruin the mood. I read that Leonardo Di Caprio at long last won his Oscar, but instead of talking about his years of hard work and his years of work with so many amazing directors and producers, he turned it into a speech about global warming.

I believe I'm even sick of the thought of seeing new movies and I don't watch award shows or even care about the Oscars anymore. The entire industry is saturated with everything being one big Vegas style show off and now that Lady Gaga is a possible Oscar nominee, the industry has officially gone to pieces. I'm fed up with actresses dressing like they belong on Hollywood Blvd. or pop stars dressing freakishly. Cher dressing like a Vegas showgirl was bad enough, but Diana Ross in a tuxedo like outfit was plain wrong and I am sick of seeing more and more socialites at these events. There's nothing special about it anymore and ever since celebs started taking themselves way to seriously and started demanding to be taken seriously, it's all officially gone downhill.

Bezos was, and is, your classic nerd-geek who is only fulfilling a dream since puberty.  She's in it for money, he's in it to make him desirable to a "sexy" woman at last.  Quite sad, really.

'I never swore I was clean:' Louis C.K admitted to notorious fraudster chef Sarma Melngailis that he may have given her an STD in a series of tetchy emails the two exchanged in 2012
* Louis C.K. may have given former restaurateur Sarma Melngailis a sexually transmitted disease during a sexual encounter six years ago, emails show  
* The former NY chef  emailed Louis C.K. claiming she was 'upset and freaked out'  
* The controversial comedian responds by saying 'I never swore I was clean'
* He told her he 'looked back tenderly and happily on our time together' and claimed 'that night' was wonderful even though it never happened again  
* Melngailis was jailed for more than three months in 2017 after she confessed to stealing more than $1million from her former workers and investors
The 46-year-old rose to popularity when her two Manhattan vegan eateries - Lucky Duck restaurant and Pure Food & Wine - became foodie sensations in the city.
Prior to her downfall, Melngailis had book deals, and celebrity customers such as Chelsea Clinton, Alec Baldwin, Woody Harrelson and Kyle MacLachlan.
But things took a wrong turn, friends and family say, when she met estranged husband, Anthony Strangis in 2007.

She would later call the man a 'sociopath' after he disappeared with their eight-month-old son in 2010, but she still brought him on board as a manager in 2013.

From January 2014 to January 2015, Melngailis reportedly transferred over $1.6million from the business accounts to her personal bank account.

Melngailis and Strangis took money from investors, didn't pay $400,000 in taxes and spent more than $2million at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos, prosecutors say.

They also dropped $80,000 on pricey watches and $70,000 on trips to Europe and $10,000 in Uber rides, according to an indictment.

A year after they disappeared, the pair were arrested in Sevierville, Tennessee, in May 2015. They had been hiding out, but were busted after they ordered a pizza from Dominos.

TALK OF THE TOWN: Victoria Beckham won't be piling on the pounds as she boasts of two-hour daily workout
She's famous for her trim physique – and Victoria Beckham certainly works hard to maintain it. She has confessed she gets up between 5.30 and six in the morning to make time for the gym before the school run with children Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven.

Posh, 44, exercises for two hours a day, beginning with a 45-minute four-mile run on a treadmill while she watches TV. She said: ‘It’s the only time I watch TV – box-sets and documentaries – so I look forward to that. Then I work out with a trainer – 30 minutes legs, 30 minutes arms – then do loads of planks for my core.’

But, as in most families, the morning routine doesn’t always go to plan. She admitted: ‘I often jump in the car half-way through to take the kids and carry on when I get home! Working out is a really positive thing for me, it’s part of who I am now.’

'There's only so much I can handle': Lindsey Vonn considers immediate retirement after failing to finish in World Cup super-G race revealing she's in too much pain to continue
Lindsey Vonn may have competed in her last ski race on Sunday in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.

After failing to finish a World Cup super-G as she battles pain in both of her knees, 34-year-old Vonn said immediate retirement 'is a possibility.'

'But I'm emotional right now,' Vonn quickly added. 'I have to really think clearly about that. It's not a decision I make lightly or quickly.'

What was evident all weekend for Lindsey Vonn became clear to everyone else on Sunday.

The American skier's surgically repaired knees simply don't let her apply the power she requires to win races anymore.

The pain is too severe; the psychological impact too much to bear; her pride too great.

No wonder that Vonn is considering moving up her retirement.

Vonn was planning on retiring in December but returned this weekend from her latest injury - to her left knee - but her best result in three races was ninth in Saturday's downhill.

Vonn needs five more wins to break the all-time World Cup record of 86 victories held by Swedish great Ingemar Stenmark but that seems far from her mind now.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6613507/Lindsey-Vonn-considers-immediate-retirement-failing-finish-World-Cup-super-G-race.html

She seems to relish the spotlight and yatching unfortunately. I was rooting for her to break the record but with her knees being so messed up, I can't see her continuing on sking to try and make history. Her teamate who won the race is the fuure of the sport and Lindsy should bow out now with some dignity. She's defenitely not a has-been as she's still in the mix with the younger skiers, but  think now would be the best time to retire instead of racking up a string of losses and more injuries trying to continue on.

She can't seem ot make up her mind about herself or her image; at this point in time it's unhealthy and it's not like she seems to understand that no one buys her super-mother persona and it's not like she seems to see the fact that her marriage is unraveling right in front of her face. Her husband is no longer bailing out her BS fashion 'house' and it's not like she has much of a marriage anymore.

According to website TMZ, after telling staff that he had a bomb in his bag, the famous musician's son then hit a security guard at Terminal 5.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman told MailOnline: 'On Saturday, 19 January, a 24-year-old man accepted a caution for communicating false information causing a bomb hoax and battery following an incident at Heathrow Terminal 5 earlier that morning.'

The spokesman added that the statement was not a confirmation of the name of the person under investigation.     

Mr Richie has since been released, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

Lionel's little liabilities: As his son Milo is held at Heathrow for threatening to blow up a plane, ALISON BOSHOFF reveals how the perils of parenthood are still keeping Lionel Richie up all night long
You can see why he is feted as one of the hardest-working performers in showbiz. But he is also known as one of the nicest.
By way of contrast, meet his three children: Nicole, 37, Miles, 24, and Sofia, 20. Raised in incredible privilege, unlike their uncool father, they are stars of the reality TV and Instagram era. If it's in vogue they're into it.
They are known for brattish behaviour, run-ins with the law, drug rehabilitation and questionable choices of romantic partner (Sofia has dated the troubled pop star Justin Bieber and her current boyfriend is reality TV star Scott Disick).
Sadly, the luxurious upbringing Richie has give his children doesn't seem to have resulted in happy, contented offspring.
His sister Nicole, meanwhile, has said she had too much, too young and turned to drugs just for a thrill.
Yet a decade and a bit later, he is going through many similar challenges with Sofia.
Asked about Miles recently, Lionel seemed to hope that a niche in fashion might help his troubled son.
Miles's plans for 2019 include making his acting debut and releasing his own 'design collection' with a brand. He wants the designs to feature a lot of silk, and trousers with 'hand-lettered Japanese writing on'.
Lionel said: 'He is now coming out of the craziness. Thank God, he made that turn.'
Given those troubling events at Heathrow, he must be hoping his son will soon find his way back on to the right path.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6616789/ALISON-BOSHOFF-reveals-perils-parenthood-keeping-Lionel-Richie-up.html
Sometimes the best thing would've been to not help them outof their troubles that are self inflicted. They're just vapid, narcarcistic thrill seekers who know daddy will bail them out. Nicole got lucky. I'm not so sure about these two; Sophia and Miles.

Adriana Lima splits from Turkish writer Metin Hara after more than a year of dating
The 37-year-old Victoria's Secret Angel and the 36-year-old self-help writer ended their relationship after a year and a half together, according to People.
The relationship was documented primarily from the self-help guru's Instagram account.  bignono
In late December, Turkish news outlets reported that the Brazilian model had broken up with her self-help boyfriend and was dating German soccer star Loris Karius. She responded forcefully on Instagram.
'For the fake Turkish media claiming that I am flirting with some random people that I never met . . . Please stop creating fake news! ENOUGH !!!!'
Earlier in December, Adriana had posted a mysterious message saying a man should be a partner, not a project. She promptly deleted the post, as well as all her photos featuring Metin.

Explosive documentary Leaving Neverland claims Michael Jackson 'gave young boys JEWELRY in exchange for sex acts and staged a full mock wedding before ditching them for younger victims'

    The Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland had its world premiere on Friday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah
    The four-hour documentary, which will air on HBO and Channel 4 in the UK, details Wade Robson and James Safechuck's allegations of abuse  
    'MJ gave one of his young male victims jewelry in exchange for sexual acts, and even staged a mock wedding,' wrote Patrick Ryan  
    'Michael Jackson witnesses/sex abuse victims coming off very credible. He was a alleged alleged pedophile,' wrote Mara Reinstein
    Robson has previously detailed Jackson masturbating while watching Robson naked on all fours and fondling his genitals
    Safechuck and Robson both received a standing ovation from the audience
    The Jackson family did not try to stop the screening in any way, but the King of Pop's nephew did urge his Twitter followers to boycott Sundance sponsors
    The film is 'so sexually explicit' counselors were in the lobby of the cinema
    Its been labelled a 'horror film' by Jeff Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere, who said Jackson was 'a fiend, a smooth predator, a monster'  
    Jackson denied all allegations that he abused underage boys during his lifetime, and his estate has done the same in the decade since his death

Police find tracking device under Black Mirror star Gugu Mbatha-Raw's car after the British actress told officers she was being stalked by her female neighbour who followed her to spin class and left her in 'constant fear'
    The 35-year-old from Oxford was being tracked for two months, said TMZ
    According to the warrant, actress told police the stalker has been calling her
    The alleged stalker is also said to live on the same street as the 35-year-old
Gugu Mbatha-Raw, 35, was being tracked for two months around Los Angeles and was followed to hotels, restaurants and spin classes, according to a search warrant.

The actress, from Oxfordshire, told police that the stalker has been calling her and her boyfriend and then hanging up.

The warrant, obtained by TMZ, allegedly states that the woman stalking the former Doctor Who star lives on her street and would show up at her house.

The stalker also took pictures of the actress, who has been awarded an MBE at Buckingham Palace for her services to drama.  

Mbatha-Raw then reported the stalker to the LAPD after the two-month ordeal and they found a GPS tracker underneath her car, according to TMZ.

She grew up in Witney, Oxfordshire after being born in Oxford. She's the daughter of Patrick Mbatha, a South African doctor, and Anne Raw, an English nurse.

Victoria Beckham's fashion brand receives a £23 million cash injection from husband David after filing £10 million in losses
David Beckham has reportedly bailed out his wife's fashion brand again with a £23 million cash injection, according to the Mirror.

The former England footballer, 44, has given Victoria's company a £4 million loan as well as £6.6 million in cash in order to keep her business afloat.  

David's handout comes after Victoria's business, which owes another of the Beckham's companys £12.2 million, filed £10 million in losses before Christmas for the year 2017.

But experts believe Victoria, who is worth an estimated £240million, can expect to turn a profit in the 'medium term'. 

A spokesperson for Victoria has been contacted for comment.

Cheryl Tweedy bids to airbrush her criminal past by calling in lawyers to ban reports of her conviction for assaulting a nightclub toilet attendant - despite writing about it in her autobiography
    Cheryl Tweedy's lawyers sent a letter to a newspaper with details of the attack
    They argue mentioning the crime is a breach of Rehabilitation of Offenders Act
    Ms Tweedy was convicted for assaulting Sophie Amogbokpa at a nightclub
It is understood they argue that any mention of the crime, the subsequent trial, her conviction or sentence is a breach of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.
The law is intended to ensure that those convicted of minor offences are not disproportionately penalised through references made to the crime many years later.
But media lawyers and freedom of speech campaigners last night criticised its attempted use by Ms Tweedy and warned of the risks of setting a precedent that could be used by the rich and famous to airbrush their criminal past.
After asking about the case, Mr Robinson wrote that the ‘temperature in the room seems to drop several degrees’ with Ms Tweedy describing his questions about it as ‘irrelevant’ and ‘boring’.
Asked if he thought that the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act could be used to prevent any mention of Ms Tweedy’s attack or conviction, Duncan Lamont, a media lawyer at Charles Russell Speechlys, said: ‘The short answer is no, she cannot stop the media from writing about the assault.
"The rationale behind the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act was that if you applied for a job, you didn’t have to mention your conviction to your employer because the conviction was spent.
‘It does not apply to the media. The act was designed to give people who committed an offence a second chance, not for privacy purposes.’
Despite the complaint from Ms Tweedy’s lawyers, Mr Robinson’s article last night remained on The Guardian’s website. The newspaper declined to comment but a source confirmed there had been correspondence with lawyers acting for Ms Tweedy.
A spokesman for Ms Tweedy, who is currently a judge on BBC show The Greatest Dancer, also declined to comment.
But a letter to this newspaper from law firm Carter Ruck cited the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and argued Ms Tweedy should be treated by the media in the same manner as someone who had not committed nor been charged, prosecuted, convicted and sentenced for an offence.

It is understood that Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has been in touch with Madden – and he even went as far as to do a shoot dressed as the suave hero for glossy magazine, GQ.

Jeff Bezos 'private investigation' into how National Enquirer obtained the sexts with his mistress Lauren Sanchez, is convinced leak came from 'someone with ties to Trump'
    Jeff Bezos' personal security team is looking for the source of the text messages revealed in the National Enquirer's report about his affair with Lauren Sanchez
    Insiders familiar with the inquiry said investigators suspect it may have been someone with ties to President Donald Trump, an outspoken critic of Bezos
    That theory could explain why it was the Enquirer that published the texts
    Trump is a longtime friend of the Enquirer's chief executive David Pecker
    Pecker admitted last month to using the Enquirer to transfer hush money to Karen McDougal, one of Trump's alleged mistresses, during the 2016 campaign
    Longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone on Tuesday tried to preempt The Daily Beast's story about the investigation
    He claimed the outlet was preparing to publish an article accusing him of conspiring with the Trump administration to hack Bezos' messages
    The Daily Beast categorically denied those claims

Jeff Bezos' private investigators question his mistress's Trump-supporting brother to find out who leaked details of their affair
* Bezos' security guard Gavin de Becker questioned Lauren Sanchez's brother Michael this week
* Sources say Michael believes his sister's phone was hacked by the NSA at President Trump's instruction
* Michael is a friend of indicted Trump ally Roger Stone and former Trump adviser Carter Page
* Bezos' investigators believe he was the target of a politically-motivated take-down
* He and Trump are adversaries and the National Enquirer - which published details of his affair with Lauren - is owned by one of Trump's friends
* Stone earlier this week claimed that Michael might be blamed for leaking texts the Amazon billionaire sent his sister

American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis says 'no one in Hollywood thinks Black Panther is a good movie' and questions if best picture Oscar nomination is for the sake of diversity
    The screenwriter and director said no one in Hollywood 'thinks Black Panther is that good as a movie' but 'as a piece of representation, they are supporting it'
    It is up for six Oscars, including best picture and best original music score
    Won big at the SAG Awards and is now highest-grossing superhero movie ever
    Speaking on the B.E.E. podcast Ellis said 'it's all fake news, folks'  and called the 'culture' the Oscars is pushing 'rather nauseating'   
    In 2012 he apologized for calling Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow 'a hot woman'
    Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o
    It is the first Marvel release to have a predominantly black cast

Sabrina really is Elba's cup of tea! Luther star Idris's fiancee, 29, takes a break between fashion shows to pose in the bath at Soho House
Rub a dub dub! Luther star Idris Elba’s fiancee, former Miss Vancouver Sabrina Dhowre, likes to leave little to the imagination.

The 29-year-old American, who is of Somali descent, took a break between fashion shows in New York at the weekend to stop by her room at Soho House for a cup of tea in the bath tub.

However, despite apparently remembering to slip out of her little black dress, the 5ft 11in brunette kept on her £65 Prada black pop socks and heels.

‘Don’t ask . . .’ she captioned the snap online taken by a girlfriend.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6693751/Luther-star-Idriss-fiancee-29-takes-break-fashion-shows-pose-bath.htmlIt should be a welcome distraction from Idris’s recent slip-up when he referred to her as his ‘wife’ on social media.

Sabrina swiftly clarified they weren’t yet married, adding: ‘Our wedding is coming up soon and I’m really looking forward to it.’  :bored: will this actually get to the alta?  :bored:

In what way does she think she looks good here? She looks like she just finished with a client and is soaking her bits before the next one arrives.  :nervous: bignono

Idria i a brilliant and talented actor and artist, but he really has a dreadful trackrecord when it comes to women. The lady that gave birth to his son a few years ago seemed to have been his best choice, but of course, he seemed to have dismised her for this young nonsesene.  :bored:

EXCLUSIVE - Candid Camelot: Unique, forgotten footage of Jackie Kennedy Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill's summer on Andy Warhol's Montauk estate is unearthed after death of avant-garde filmmaker who recorded them
-Lee Radziwill rented a cottage on Andy Warhol's Montauk estate and the sisters spent the summer of 1972 away from the public eye with their four children
-Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis hired Jonas Mekas, 'the Godfather' of avant-garde cinema to teach her children film making and photography during that summer
-Footage from that time was turned into a forgotten movie titled 'This Side of Paradise;' a 35-minute home video capturing intimate family moments
-Radziwill was dating the legendary ladies' man and photographer Peter Beard, who owned a home next to Warhol's Montauk compound at the time
-Radziwill met Beard while touring with The Rolling Stones; Mick and Bianca Jagger were guests of Montauk after they finished the tour 
-Footage reveals a young John F. Kennedy Jr. playing air guitar to The Rolling Stones, Jacqueline Kennedy in Chinatown NYC and Tina Radziwill blowing out the candles on her 12th birthday with Andy Warhol in the background
By TATE DELLOYE FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

PUBLISHED: 19:20 GMT, 8 February 2019 | UPDATED: 21:06 GMT, 8 February 2019

 Water skiing, playing tennis, fishing off the beach, digging in the sand, driving with the windows down—these are the halcyon scenes of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lee Radziwill’s time spent with their children at Andy Warhol’s massive estate in Montauk. The footage was shot by the legendary poet and avant-garde filmmaker, Jonas Mekas; who died last month at the age of 96 in his Brooklyn home.

It was the summer of 1972 and Lee Radziwill rented out the main cottage on Andy Warhol’s 5-home beach side compound that he called Eothen. The humble, clapboard vacation home became a sweet respite for Radziwill, her sister Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and their four children. During this time, Kennedy employed Jonas Mekas- an icon in New York City’s underground film world-to teach her children, John F. Kennedy Jr. and Caroline Kennedy, photography and film making while on vacation in Long Island’s eastern most tip.

The result is the much forgotten film titled, ‘This Side of Paradise;’ a 35 minute home video of the endlessly fascinating and beguiling Bouvier sisters, in their most candid and personal moments during the languid, golden hours of that Montauk summer they spent swimming, boating, preparing meals, and enjoying the privacy and isolation of Warhol’s estate.

"As a victim of a *despise* crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying."

6:15 PM PT -- Chicago PD's Chief Communications Officer confirms the case has taken a turn based on details provided by the brothers, saying ... "The information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation."

He adds that police have reached out to Jussie's attorney to request a follow-up interview.

Nicole has unfortunately sold her soul for a failed solo pop career as I remember her way back from her first pop group after staring in the reality show that was looking to put a girl group together. She was a Christian young woman who listened to Christian music and seemed family oriented. Unfortunately, she went down the vapid route of messing in the cesspool of yachting and sleeping with men for work and opportunities. Nick Cannon, who she’s working with now on that awful looking show, Behind the Mask, or some such crap, was one of her ‘boyfriends.’ I wonder if she had to do him again to get on the show.

My meeting with Karl Lagerfeld and why the relentless pursuit of the avant-garde will be his legacy
During my years at Vogue, I found it hard not to be seduced by the wonderful world of Chanel. I’m still seduced. At Chanel Couture 18 months ago, sat under the vast glass ceiling of the Grand Palais, it was the only time emotion got the better of me at my then soon departure from my happy workplace. I blubbed quietly through the whole thing, bereft that this magical world wouldn’t be part of mine for much longer.

There is no other fashion house like Chanel. Its make-up in that iconic monochrome palette is able every time to signal instant elegance from the depths of my chaotic handbag; the incredible craftsmanship of its ateliers remains unbeaten by its competitors. The sheer flamboyance and magic of its fairy-tale creations mean every show trafficks better on social media than any other. For the past 36 years this has all been down to Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s iconic creative director, who died this week, aged 85.

I only met him properly just the once in Saint Tropez at one of his Cruise collections. My best friend, who knew the designer extremely well, dragged me over to say hello, saying he loved to meet new people — Lagerfeld’s relentless hunt for the avant-garde, his adoption of pop culture and his erudite obsessions were what powered his dizzying success.

That weekend in 2010, despite his kingly status, with his powdered white hair, dark glasses and fingerless gloves, he appeared to me rather shy, tired, slightly apart from the animated crowd around him. The caricature he had created of himself was the perfect armour to hide behind. I was too tongue-tied to say much. My brother had no such qualms. He charged in to chat animatedly about art and was soon perched on Lagerfeld’s knee, causing him to laugh uproariously.  

What strikes me now is that the designer was already in his mid-Seventies that weekend. His tenure has been startlingly long for an industry that churns out designers as fast as seasonal trends. Kaiser Karl would reign for another 10 and died quite literally on the job, an industrious workaholic to the end. Many close to him are naturally devastated. “I do not like funerals and I do not want anyone to come to mine,” he once said. And he was not exaggerating — his ashes are to be placed without service alongside his long-gone lover and mother.

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Guy Ritchie and David Beckham pulling pints together at their new pub in London's Fitzrovia

Now they are teaming up again to be joint landlords of a London pub, pulling pints together at an ancient wood-panelled inn which is quickly turning into a gourmet celebrity magnet.

The Lore Of The Land secretly opened its doors in London's Fitzrovia last week, marking Ritchie's return to pub ownership for the first time since he and Madonna owned the Punch Bowl in Mayfair.

It's very much a David and Guy collaboration, both of them leveraging their love of beer and pubs into a joint venture. And I can disclose it is more country gent's high gastronomy than cockney geezer pub fare.

The pair's pub empire is growing. Ritchie and Beckham — who attended his friend's wedding to model Jacqui Ainsley at Ashcombe in 2015, and went fishing with him in Iceland last year — have also bought the Walmer Castle pub in Notting Hill.

EXCLUSIVE: Family of the black pianist who 'inspired' Green Book believe the best picture win was a shameful example of Hollywood playing lip service to racial equity
* The family of the black pianist depicted in the Oscar winning Green Book has described the celebration of the movie as 'a shame' and say director Peter Farrelly 'took a jab' at the family in his acceptance speech
* The last surviving brother of Dr Donald Shirley, the black pianist featured in the Oscar-nominated Green Book, has previously slammed the film as a 'shameful travesty'
* The movie was billed as a touching tale of the unlikely friendship between Shirley and racist Italian American Tony 'Lip' Vallelonga who was briefly his driver
* But Shirley's brother, Maurice told DailyMailTV last month how the film is 'a symphony of lies' and diminishes Shirley, casting him as supporting actor in the story of his life
* Maurice says Shirley and Vallelonga were never friends and he was fired for behaviors shown in the movie, such as his refusal to carry Shirley's luggage
* His niece said: 'To feel the right and privilege to depict your life and to tell your story without you, without any input from those who knew you…It's a travesty'
* The 82-year-old says the film is inaccurate to the point of fiction, pointing to the presentation of Shirley as a man disconnected from his family
* Yet Maurices' Milwaukee home is crowded with family photographs - proof of a lifetime of closeness
* But the family holds no grudge against actor Mahershala Ali who plays Shirley, saying he was the only one to reach out to them on learning of their push-back
* Maurice said: 'It was a telephone call. I took the position of being supportive of his sincerity. I told him that he's just been duped'

^^ I watched the docu recently, "Surviving R Kelly", and just wow.

The most shocking though were the parents who knew about everything and nonetheless went into business with him (making his clothes I think), and even accepted tickets to his concerts and took their daughter!!!!! They thought because she was with them nothing could happen to her and guess what, yep she quit school and went to live with him, still is. They were the only case I had barely any sympathy for tbh. Wtf were they thinking??

So sickening what he's done and people knew all along, I just can't get over how he was let free last time and one of the jurors made an appearance and that old piece of sh*t said he had no sympathy for the women, because how they dressed and behaved and so he voted that RK is innocent. Beyond sickening.

Also outrageous his behaviour at his concerts, taking women's hands and placing them on his crotch on stage and thrusting.

He's a sick pervert.

    Oyewolo has shared a dressing room with the current James Bond, Daniel Craig

'I did not have a superhero to identify with growing up on a council estate in Islington. It was all Superman. That these things are very important is not lost on me.'

He said he would talk to the James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.

Oyewolo said he has received a lot of messages since taking part in the BBC adaptation of Les Miserables, which he said has changed people's perception about people of colour in European history.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6792847/Les-Mis-star-David-Oyewolo-wants-black-James-Bond.html

As a person of clour, this argument's really ticking me off. James Bond is a paid assasin or the UK government. He's not a superhero in the dsam evein as Superman who's against violence. Black Pantha was conceived to be played by a black persoin What's wrong with continuing on that course and make origional characters that help the young minority kids to identify with? Why's there this dumb argument that a historical white character has to be changed to fit this dumb narrative of itenity politics? I'd be more interested in the telling of black people in European history than encroach on messing with James Bond.  :bored: :bored: :bored:

Yes, me too. In fact, James Bond is English. If they want a person of color to be the next James Bond - they should get an Indian or Pakistani James Bond, not a black one. I also don't like the ethnocentrism of some media outlets where discrimination is happening to AA only. There's asians, lots and lots of them and they get as discriminated as african americans. There's way more indians and chinese people that get discriminated against than black people. And, in Europe "caucasian" is all kinds of dark.

Too much Hollywood nonsense and the next generation of youngsters will try a dance off or to put a spider web on someone or show a cross at someone who tries to mug them. Better to bring up the youngsters with real world heroes like Ruth Beta Ginsburg, not with color-appropriate fake superheroes.

"A Battle for My Life:
I had just finished filming Season 1 of “Game of Thrones.” Then I was struck with the first of two aneurysms."


An exerpt:

"When they woke me, I was screaming in pain. The procedure had failed. I had a massive bleed and the doctors made it plain that my chances of surviving were precarious if they didn’t operate again. This time they needed to access my brain in the old-fashioned way—through my skull. And the operation had to happen immediately.

The recovery was even more painful than it had been after the first surgery. I looked as though I had been through a war more gruesome than any that Daenerys experienced. I emerged from the operation with a drain coming out of my head. Bits of my skull had been replaced by titanium. These days, you can’t see the scar that curves from my scalp to my ear, but I didn’t know at first that it wouldn’t be visible."
