Dog The Bounty Hunter & Security Team Involved In Alleged Violent Bar Incident

Categories: Uncategorized

dogDuane ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’ Chapman was involved in a nightclub fracas in Mobile, Ala. when a bar patron alleged he was “knocked unconscious” by the reality TV star’s security team, and has all the exclusive details on the open investigation.

Police were called to Flashback nightclub around 11:15 p.m. after a brawl with alleged victim Ryan Reeds ensued.

The victim claims he was assaulted by the security staff of Dog the Bounty Hunter,” Officer Perkins told Radar in an exclusive interview.

However, multiple witnesses at the scene that were interviewed by the police say the victim was being a jerk the whole night. He was told multiple times to leave the club and he did not. Several people told this version of events. No arrests were made and the investigation is still open, but based in what the many witnesses have to say it is doubtful a warrant is forthcoming.”

According to Officer Perkins, Dog was not interviewed — only his bodyguard was.

However, Reeds has a very different story to tell.

I am doing fine now. I was knocked unconscious for five minutes from what I am being told,” Reeds said in an interview.

We were all on the stage dancing and that is when DBH came in and told us to get the f**k up. They had already had a table in front of the stage reserved but he told us we had to move. We were upset. I went to go and talk to Dog, and his bodyguards came up and the bouncers of the bar had us all escorted outside. When we told the owner of the bar what happened he invited us back in and offered to pay for all our drinks.”

But after an hour, Reeds claims the bodyguard picked a fight.

I walked off to go to the bathroom and had to walk past the table. I did not say a word to him and two of his bodyguards got up and got in my face… I walked by and told them I was going to bathroom, but the bodyguard justcold punched me from the side,” he said.

I then remember waking up at my parents home with the cops. I do not remember going to the car or how I got home. My cheek is swollen and my shoulder is sore from when I fell. I cannot put any weight on my body. A bodyguard told my mom to ‘shut up b*tch.’ They were out of line. I want people to know how bad Dog and his people are. Dog was laughing at the fact that one of his people knocked me out. The bodyguard needs to come forward and take responsibility.”

Josh Elliott Of ‘Good Morning America’ To Depart ABC News For NBC Sports

Categories: Uncategorized

josh“We worked hard to close a significant gap between our generous offer and [Elliott’s] expectations,” wrote ABC News president Ben Sherwood in a staff memo.

Josh Elliott is departing ABC News for NBC Sports, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll have a robust role on all of NBC Sports’ signature franchises including the network’s coverage of the Triple Crown, the Olympics and Sunday Night Football. But sources there stress that he will not replace any of NBC Sports’ current on-air analysts and talent. An announcement from NBC Sports is expected later this week. 

Elliott, part of the Good Morning America team that helped to topple the Today show’s 16-year morning news streak, has been in a heated negotiation with ABC executives for many months. He informed the network on Sunday that he would depart. ABC News president Ben Sherwood sent an email to staffers Sunday evening announcing that Amy Robach would become news anchor on GMA and that Elliott would be leaving the network.

“As many of you know, we have been negotiating with Josh these past several months. In good faith, we worked hard to close a significant gap between our generous offer and his expectations,” wrote Sherwood. “In the end, Josh felt he deserved a different deal and so he chose a new path.” 

Sources tell THR that ABC News offered Elliott between $4 and $5 million, a substantial raise from the $800,000 he was making. Meanwhile, ABC News executives last week finalized a new long-term deal with anchor Lara Spencer, while long-time weather anchor Sam Champion departed Good Morning America last December for The Weather Channel. 

Robach is very familiar to GMA audiences. She was as among the anchors who filled in for Robin Roberts during Roberts’ treatment for a bone marrow and blood disease and she has continued to appear on the show. Sherwood characterized Robach as a “world class anchor” and singled out Robach’s interviews with families of Newtown shooting victims and her reporting on polygamist leader Warren Jeffs.

Donovan Leitch: ‘Don’t Blame Me For Gwyneth’s Split With Chris Martin!’

Categories: Uncategorized

palIt was the kiss seen ’round the world. Gwyneth Paltrow and her ex, Donovan Leitch, kissing and tenderly embracing. The photo was taken last September at a Los Angeles Dodgers game, but took on new meaning in light of Paltrow’s announcement last week that she and Chris Martin were “consciously uncoupling.”

Now Leitch wants to make sure everyone knows he had nothing to do with the split.

I was just saying goodbye to her. It was purely innocent,” Leitch told the Mail on Sunday. “We were sitting in the owner’s box in front of 30,000 people with her two children right next to us. That isn’t exactly the setting for a secret liaison.

I consider her one of my closest friends. We have tons of great friends in common.”

The pair dated “eons ago,” said Leitch and have remained friends ever since.

Carl Reiner’s Life Of Laughter

Categories: Uncategorized

Comedian Carl Reiner Signs And Discusses His New Book "I Remember Me"Carl Reiner wakes up each morning with the same thought — it’s time to start writing.

It’s still the top priority for the Emmy Award-winning funny man who created the landmark CBS sitcom “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” wrote and directed such comedy film favorites as 1970’s “Where’s Poppa?,” 1977’s “Oh , God!” and 1979’s “The Jerk” and who, along with his lifetime friend Mel Brooks, performed the “2000 Year Old Man” routines.

“I get to my computer and I either play solitaire or do some tweets,” said Reiner (who, for the record, has more than 62,000 Twitter followers). Then after his fun and games are over, Reiner begins to really write.

Two years ago, he published a memoir, “I Remember Me,” and he just finished another autobiographical book, “I Just Remembered!,” which Reiner believes “is even better. I remembered all the things I didn’t put in the other book!”

Reiner described himself as an “actor without a portfolio” when he did the influential 1950-54 NBC comedy variety series “Your Show of Shows” — he was a regular with Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca and Howard Morris. Among the show’s writers were such comic figures as Brooks, Mel Tolkin, Larry Gelbart and Neil Simon.

He was eventually allowed admittance to the hallowed writers’ room.

“At the very beginning of the show for the first couple of weeks I had to sit in the hall while the writers wrote,” said the 92-year-old Reiner, who despite being under the weather is warm and witty during a recent phone conversation from his home in Beverly Hills.

Then Reiner pitched an idea of spoofing foreign films. The writers not only embraced the idea, they invited Reiner to join the writers room. He didn’t hold back. “If I had an idea I would say it,” he noted.

He had more than a say in “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” which starred Van Dyke as TV variety writer Rob Petrie and Mary Tyler Moore as his capri-clad wife, Laura. Reiner created, produced and wrote numerous episodes of the comedy, based on his life.

Reiner recalled talking to himself while driving on the FDR Drive one day in New York. “I said, ‘You live in New Rochelle, you have a wife and two kids and you go to work in New York. At the office you talk about what happened at home and when you get home you talk about what happened in the office.’ I said, ‘That’s it. I’m going to write what I knew about — the home life of a writer who works in variety.'”

“The Dick Van Dyke Show” is widely considered one of the greatest sitcoms in TV history. On Tuesday, Image Entertainment is bringing out a two-disc DVD featuring 20 episodes that shine the spotlight on Moore. Among the episode are “My Blonde-Hair Brunette,” in which Laura goes blond with disastrous results, and “Coast to Coast Big Mouth,” which finds Laura announcing on live TV that pompous star Alan Brady (Reiner) wears a toupee.

Though Reiner is in good humor during the conversation, he’s reeling from the loss of Caesar, who died last month at age 91. He, Brooks and others are working on a memorial “to give him his just due because without Sid there would not be the kind of comedy that exists today,” Reiner said.

(The American Cinematheque’s Aero Theatre is presenting an homage Sunday night to Caesar with a screening of the 1963 comedy “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.”)

“He brought the sketch comedy to a level that never existed before,” Reiner said. “He was a comedian’s comedian.  You have heard that many times about many actors, but as far as sketches are concerned, nobody could ever do a sketch like he could. He had a face that was rubber.”

One of the funniest sketches from “Your Show of Your Shows” with Reiner and Caesar was “This Is Your Story,” a spoof of the popular radio and TV series “This Is Your Life.” In that series, host Ralph Edwards would surprise an audience member with friends and family from their past. Usually tears of joy ensued.

But in the skit, Caesar is a reluctant participant and tries to run when Reiner in the Edwards role approaches him in the audience. Wrestled to the stage by four ushers, various relatives and people from his life excitedly greet him on stage.

“It is one of the funniest sketches ever written,” said Reiner, who once learned that “Monty Python’s” John Cleese thought it was so funny that he was afraid he would damage himself laughing.

And Reiner had somewhat the same reaction in 1973 when “Ten From Your Show of Shows,” a compilation film of classic sketches, was released theatrically.  He had never seen a clip of the sketch after it aired “because we had so much work to do.”

While watching the film in a darkened theater, he heard a woman “screaming with laughter” during the “This Is Your Life” segment.

But it wasn’t a woman.

“I said that woman is me!  I didn’t recognize the laughter coming out of me. To this day, I dare anyone not to laugh. It was Sid being so brilliant.”

Piers Morgan Signs Off

Categories: Top Stories

Piers_profile_twitterPiers Morgan wrapped his three-year CNN run with a full hour of discussion about the missing plane. But in his four-minute final remarks, he couldn’t resist taking a parting shot at the NRA. “I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theater, and then, just a few months later, 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, the absurd gun laws in this country would change,” he said. “But nothing has happened. The gun lobby in America, led by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence. Even when 20 young children are blown away in their classrooms. This is a shameful situation that has made me very angry.” He continued to rail and wrapped it with this: “But I’ve made my point. … Now it’s down to you. It’s your country; these are your gun laws. And the senseless slaughter will only end when enough Americans stand together and cry: Enough!”

As the camera began to pan out, the British expat delivered his final words on the ratings-challenged Piers Morgan Live: “Goodnight, thank you, and God bless America. Oh, and while I’m at it, God bless Great Britain too.”

George Wallace Is Suing For Millions Over Achilles Tendon

Categories: Uncategorized

goergeVeteran comedian George Wallace told a Nevada jury on Friday that it felt like a bear trap clamped his leg when he injured his Achilles tendon during a stand-up comedy show for a private audience at a resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

The 61-year-old comic never cracked a smile as he recalled his vivid inner monologue after becoming entangled in wiring as he crossed the stage during the show for a corporate group at the Bellagio in December 2007.

“All of a sudden, I thought I was electrocuted,” he said. “Man, I don’t know what a bear trap feels like. But something went through me from the bottom of my feet to the top of my head.”

Wallace, who has been doing standup comedy for almost 40 years, said he kept telling jokes and exchanging laughs with members of the HSBC Card Services Inc. audience, but leaned on a podium as he delivered gifts as planned to several people. He said he was paid $30,000 for the show.

While Wallace testified, jurors saw photos of a black speaker console with black wiring coiled around the base, and an image from the audience of Wallace in the spotlight next to a tabletop lectern.

All the while, Wallace said, “I was thinking, ‘I can’t walk.’ “

Wallace’s attorney, Dominic Gentile, has said he plans to ask the jury to award Wallace $9 million for his injury and negligence claim.

Bellagio attorneys led by Paul Haire say Wallace voluntarily assumed the risk of injury during his show, had a pre-existing injury and was careless onstage.

The defense’s presentation is scheduled next week.

Wallace testified Thursday that his personal and professional life have been permanently affected by his leg injury, and that he’s not able to dance or run on stage like he used to do.

Wallace followed the ill-fated show at the Bellagio with his regular 10 p.m. performance at the Flamingo, where he recently marked his 10th anniversary.

The jury saw a video of him in that show, seated onstage in a swivel chair, playing the scene for laughs as he asked his warm-up performers, MO5AIC, what the audience must be thinking.

“They’re, ‘Oh, George Wallace is in a wheelchair,’ ” he said. “And they will think I’m doing a joke.”

Some in the audience laughed.

“See, it’s funny to them already,” Wallace said. “But it ain’t funny to me. I’m hurtin.’ “

Coldplay Feel Gwyneth Is Their Yoko Ono

Categories: Top Stories

PaltrowIn the latest divorce revelation, has exclusively learned Chris Martin‘s Coldplay bandmates compared Gwyneth Paltrow to Yoko Ono!

According to a well-placed source, Paltrow “interfered” so much with Martin and his band that she was likened to Ono, who famously was accused of breaking up the Beatles after she married John Lennon (a charge Ono has always denied).

The members of Coldplay loathed loathed Gwyneth because she guilted Chris into moving to California in a last-ditch attempt to save the relationship,” the source told Radar.

And during the ten year marriage, “Gwyneth never made any attempt to bond with Chris’ band members, who also happen to be his best friends.

In particular, guitarist Johnny Buckland and his wife, Chloe, had hoped to become closer couples friends with Gwyneth and Chris after they had their own two children, but it never happened,” the source said. “Gwyneth just couldn’t be bothered because she would rather hang out with her other famous London friends including fashion designer Stella McCartney. It was clear that Gwyneth viewed Chris’ life with the band completely separate from her world, and she very much wanted it that way.

Of course she would show up to Coldplay concerts, but would hardly ever pop by the recording studio to say hello, or just hang out,” the source close to the band told

The actress and the Coldplay frontman announced their plans to “consciously uncouple” on Gwyneth’s website, website on Tuesday.

Radar broke the story: that Martin had been miserable since leaving London for sunny SoCal, where Paltrow wanted to live.

Prior to the separation announcement, Martin told Paltrow he had wanted to move back to England with the kids once the school year was over, sources said.

He hasn’t been happy living in Los Angeles because Chris just isn’t into the Hollywood scene. Since moving to L.A., Chris has been away from the band, and he has essentially put his career on the back burner,” a source previously told us.

Paltrow also took issue with “Chris going on tour with the band so much. She always made him feel guilty and said she was stuck at home with the kids while Chris was off seeing the world. But this is his job, Gwyneth knew she was marrying a rock star, and what did she expect him to do?” the source added.

Coldplay has toured almost non-stop since 2008, with the Viva la Vida Tour, Mylo Xyloto Tour which ran from 2011-2012. The band is expected to tour to promote their new album Ghost Stories which will be released in May.

Martin’s marital woes “have definitely helped to contribute to some great songs and other great material. The upcoming album Ghost Stories will definitely lament this transition period in Chris’ life,” the source said.

Known for her shockingly elitist statements, Paltrow hasn’t changed, recently saying that her job as a high paid actress (with a slew of assistants, a publicist, agent etc.) makes her life much more challenging than other moms.

I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening,” Paltrow claimed. “When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”

Our source says Gwyneth’s “insensitive and out of touch comments about being a working mother in Hollywood goes to the heart of the issues the band had with Gwyneth. They were always VERY respectful of the relationship, and really held their tongues about what they truly thought about her. With that being said, they know Chris isn’t a saint, but he is their brother, and will support him during this time. He will be just fine.”
