Bill Cosby Hires Private Investigators To Dig Up Dirt

Categories: Uncategorized

billBill Cosby has hired a battalion of private investigators to dig up dirt on his many accusers, The New York Post has learned.

The comedian, fighting an onslaught of accusations that he sexually assaulted more than two dozen women over many years, is paying six-figure fees to private investigators for information that might discredit his alleged victims.

Multiple sources confirmed that Cosby, through his Hollywood attorney Martin Singer, is implementing a scorched-earth strategy in which anything negative in his accusers’ pasts is fair game.

At least one Glendale, Calif.-based firm with a half-dozen former LAPD detectives on staff is muckraking for Cosby, a source said.

“If you’re going to say to the world that I did this to you, then the world needs to know, ‘What kind of person are you? Who is this person that’s saying it?’ ” Cosby told his legal and public-relations team at a recent meeting, according to an insider who was present.

Discussing supermodel Beverly Johnson’s claim that Cosby spiked her cappuccino during a visit to his home in the 1980’s the source said, “You mean you never reported it to the police? You never tell anyone?”

The source continued: “The strategy isn’t new and it’s quite simple: You say I’m a bad guy, well, let’s see what gives you the right to throw a stone at my house when your home is also made of glass.”

Another source confirmed the alleged legal strategy noting that it has already worked to some degree.

“They were able to find out information about Beverly Johnson’s boyfriend who said she only had good things to say about Cosby. We found out that Beverly never told her live-in lover of several years what she’s now telling the media and we found that to be strange,” the source noted.

The insider also said they’ve dug up information on another accuser – Katherine McKee, a onetime girlfriend of the late Sammy Davis Jr. who said Cosby raped her in the 1970’s.Investigators uncovered internet posts in which McKee wrote glowingly of Cosby and an interview in which she said she is “used to lying.”

Singer would not address the hiring of private detectives.

“You [the media] don’t need private investigators to find out information about the accusers. A simple Google search will obtain the information,” he said.

New Play Reveals Princess Diana’s Lover James Hewitt Could Be Prince Harry’s Father

Categories: Uncategorized

harryWho is Prince Harry’s real father? Rumors have swirled for years that it’s not not Prince Charles but rather James Hewitt, the man Princess Diana allegedly had an affair with.

Now Hewitt is supporting a new play, Truth, Lies, Diana, which contains shocking details about his relationship with Dana..

In one scene, Hewitt’s character admits, “Diana and I started our relationship more than a year before Harry was born. Now that doesn’t prove that I am his father. It’s just the… inconvenient truth.”

Truth, Lies, Diana is based on interviews with Hewitt and other who knew the Princess.
Hewitt has previously denied that he is Harry’s father but confirms that he knows the play’s author Jon Conway and spoke to him about his relationship with Diana. He said he had no doubt the play would be ‘accurate,’ however, he has not seen the play or read specific scenes.

Conway explains, “I have been talking to James over a period of two years. I met him and he told me some quite remarkable things that have never been said in the public domain, particularly about when his relationship with Diana started.

“There is a startling revelation that James Hewitt makes and he has allowed me to make it in the play. This is the fact that his relationship with Diana started 18 months before Prince Harry was born.”

Conway added, “We are not saying he is Prince Harry’s father although the audience may take their own view on that.”

Of course he is his father, there is no way Charles is….just look at him. Like anyone ever thought Harry was really Charles son. The only Windsor associated with Harry is the knot in his tie.

Cops Called On Charlize Theron And Sean Penn

Categories: Top Stories

article-2694857-1F7496A200000578-203_634x945Sean Penn and Charlize Theron, 39. may be a strange couple but they do like to do normal romantic things, such as morning hikes and enjoying a picnic.

Although it seems their morning routine did not go as planned on Thursday November 13 when the cops showed up after someone heard Theron’s 2-year old son screaming.

While stopping to have a picnic along their hiking trail at Vasquez Rocks in Santa Clarita, California, Theron’s son Jackson had a tantrum after being put in a time-out.

A female hiker who heard the screams went to investigate and began filming while heading towards them but she didn’t get too far before Charlize told the hiker to not go near Jackson.

Apparently the hiker assumed Jackson was being harmed in some way and called the cops claiming she thought something bad might have happened to him.

However, when police arrived and Theron explained what had happened, they determined there was no physical contact involved in the child’s timeout and no further action was taken against Penn or Theron.

Theron adopted Jackson in 2010 around the same time her nine-year relationship with Irish actor Stuart Townsend ended.

She and Penn, who is 15 years her senior, then began dating in early 2014.

Penn has two children, Dylan, 23, and Hopper Jack, 21, with ex-wife and actress Robin Wright.

Jennifer Lawrence Tops Forbes’ List

Categories: Top Stories

jenniferlawrence18Jennifer Lawrence is Forbes’ top grossing actor of 2014.

Throughout the year, Lawrence’s films — including blockbusters “Mockingjay” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” — have brought in $1.4 billion at the box office worldwide. According to Forbes, that number will grow even more as “Mockingjay” continues its theatrical run.

This is a big jump in the rankings for Lawrence, who last year snagged the final spot in the top ten with a gross of $700 million. The number one spot in 2013 was filled by Dwayne Johnson, who brought in $1.3 billion.

The ranking comes on the heels of recently released information from the Sony leaks that Lawrence was paid less than her male co-stars for her work in “American Hustle” — a revelation that falls in line with the greater gender gap that continues to persist in Hollywood.

Rounding out the top five of 2014’s list include Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Wahlberg and Chris Evans.

Chris Pine Regrets Not Getting ‘Jack Ryan’ Right

Categories: Top Stories

chris_pineChris Pine doesn’t think Paramount will be releasing a sequel to “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” any time soon.

The titular star of the rejuvenated franchise told Moviefone that the film’s low box office turnout has likely killed its future.

“No, I don’t think it made enough money for that to happen,” Pine said when asked if there have been talks of further “Jack Ryan” adventures. “That’s one of my deep regrets, that we didn’t totally get that right. It’s a great franchise, and if it’s not me, then I hope it gets a fifth life at this point. It’s just great. I love the spy genre. I hope it’s done again and with a great story.”

The spy thriller earned $50.6 million in the U.S. not even matching its already-low $60 million production budget and a worldwide take of $135.5 million.

Director Kenneth Branagh had said that he’d be happy to helm other installments since there were so many stories left to tell in the Jack Ryan world.

Pine was the latest actor to take on the famous Tom Clancy character, who has appeared in four other films: “The Hunt for Red October,” “Patriot Games,” “Clear and Present Danger” and “The Sum of All Fears.”

Imperioli will play Odell Martin, a reformed criminal with a passion for surfing. Originally from Staten Island, Odell came to Oahu 10 years ago and now runs an old-school barbershop. Although the place employs ex-cons, the business is legit and so is Odell. However, he does keep his ear to the ground and is on friendly terms with many powerful underworld figures. As such, he has great intel on what’s happening on the street.

Odell, who pops up in at least two episodes, is “a sort of fun ex-New York transplant who’s become a surfer/confidential informant,” executive producer Peter Lenkov explains.

Imperioli, who will make his first appearance in 14th episode of the season, joins recently announced guest-stars Barkhad Abdi and Cloris Leachman.

Chelsea Handler Posts Another Topless Pic

Categories: Top Stories

chelsea2The comedienne ditched her top and bared her breasts on top of a snowy mountain in a new Instagram photo on Dec. 26. See Chelsea’s latest racy pic here!

Chelsea Handler, 39, is not shy about showing her breasts. The former late night comedienne has posed topless before and has stated that if men can show their nipples, then women certainly can, too! Chelsea showed a topless pic of herself on Instagram on Dec. 26, and though it was deleted due to Instagram’s photo policies, you can see the full photo here!

Chelsea stood stoically looking off into the distance on top of a snowy mountain. She was dressed in full skiing gear, complete with ski goggles and snow pants, except, oh yeah, she ditched her top and bra!

Chelsea captioned her photo, “I lost chunk on the mountain,” which refers to her dog.

The topless photo, which was deleted by Instagram, is not so shocking in the sense that Chelsea has bared her breasts for the camera many times.

Just in October, the outspoken Chelsea Lately host mocked a photo of Vladimir Putin by posing topless on a horse. She attempted to make a joke out of the Russian President for his often sexist comments. Unfortunately, just like Chelsea’s Putin pic, Instagram didn’t find her topless mountain very funny at all, and took it down.

For someone who seems to love baring it all, it comes as a shock that Chelsea repeatedly makes fun of Kim Kardashian, and even announced that she’s so sick of the Kardashian family.

After Kim’s Paper magazine photos surfaced, Chelsea posted a bold statement on Instagram about their double standards.

Just so I’m clear, Instagram…it’s ok to use nudity to sexualize yourself on your site, but not to make a joke? I’m just so confused.

‘Steve Jobs’ San Francisco Shoot Seeks Vintage Techies

Categories: Uncategorized

Apple Store Soho Presents: Meet the Actors: Michael Fassbender and Domhnall Gleeson - "Frank"Universal is prepping for the start of shooting “Steve Jobs” in late January in the San Francisco Bay Area and has put out a casting call for vintage tech nerds. No Mark Zuckerberg-style hoodie wearers or “Silicon Valley” types need apply, though  “Steve Jobs” is set at the dawn of the Apple era in the 1980s and 1990s. Both men and women with fluffy ’80s hairstyles are in demand as extras for the period movie.

Beau Bonneau Casting is seeking locals for paid extra work for the film, which covers three of Jobs’ product launches. Background actors will portray cafe patrons, audience, press, engineers, marketing teams, interns and technicians.

“Production’s strongest need is for Men 18-40s with flexible schedules and comb-able length hair and/or men willing to grow their hair, facial hair, sideburns to match 80s-90s time periods,” the notice said. “Women should have natural hair colors, no chunky highlights or ultra modern styles. Overall for men and women, curls, waves and volume are a plus. Production will provide haircuts as needed.”

Michael FAssbender is on board to play the lead with “Inherent Vice” actress Katherine Waterston as Jobs’ first wife Chrisann Brennan and Seth Rogen portraying Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Danny Boyle will direct from Aaron Sorkin’s script, based on Walter Isaacson’s biography. Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady are producing.

Universal picked up “Jobs” out of turnaround last month after Sony let it go.

CNN’s Don Lemon Named To ‘Worst Journalism Of 2014’ List

Categories: Uncategorized

donDon Lemon has picked up a dubious honor: ranking in a Columbia Journalism Review fellow’s list of the “worst journalism” of 2014.

The anchor has made headlines throughout the year for controversial moments during his tenure as a CNN newsroom anchor.

In a post written by David Uberti, the CJR fellow makes a case for why Lemon deserves to be ranked along with other missteps in journalism over the past year.

“As one of the most recognizable anchors on CNN, Don Lemon has helped lead the cable network’s coverage of the biggest stories of the year. Live television is exceedingly difficult to produce, of course, but Lemon’s gaffes this year offer a case study in how to choose words wisely  or not,” Uberti wrote.

Lemon’s comment that “Obviously, there’s a smell of marijuana” during a Ferguson protest and his remarks during an interview with a Bill Cosby accuser were cited as controversial moments by Uberti. The CNN wasn’t alone in the cable news world on the CJR worst list, Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends also made Uberti’s list.

Also included on the list was Rolling Stone magazine, which acknowledged serious missteps in its feature report on an alleged University of Virginia campus rape. “The disintegration of the magazine’s visceral campus rape story from Nov. 19 wins this year’s media-fail sweepstakes,” Uberti wrote.

On Dec. 22, Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner wrote in a statement that the magazine had asked Columbia Journalism School, which publishes CJR, to review the edit process of the feature.
