Corey Feldman’s 1993 audio files naming alleged sexual predators found by Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office
Has Corey Feldman been vindicated?
The former child actor claimed in October that he had given the names of sexual predators in Hollywood to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office in 1993 during their investigation into Michael Jackson’s molestation charges. The Sheriff’s Office denied those claims, saying they had no records of Feldman revealing such information, until now.
Harvey Weinstein was slapped with a civil lawsuit Monday charging him with sex trafficking tied to an alleged assault in Cannes, France.
Aspiring actress Kadian Noble’s lawsuit claims Weinstein first “groomed” her for the alleged assault in London, when he told her that “he had a role in mind for her and that ‘it will be good for you.’”
They met again in February 2014 in Cannes, where the troubled movie producer asked her to come to the Le Majestic Hotel “where he would review her reel and discuss her future.”
Susan Sarandon at 71 is bright-eyed and airy, and perhaps shyer than she can publicly seem. When I walk into the room – a private members’ club in downtown New York, where she sits with a small dog at her feet – she doesn’t say hello or make eye-contact, giving what I suspect is a false impression of rudeness. It may also be that she is uncertain of her reception. For a long time Sarandon was despised by the right, her protests against the Vietnam war and US aggression in Nicaragua and Iraq making her the kind of target that, for progressives, is an affirmation of sorts. Her latest unpopularity, by contrast, comes exclusively from the left and is much tougher on Sarandon. “I’m not attacked from the right at all,” she will tell me. Instead, she is accused of not checking her white privilege, of throwing away her vote on a third-party candidate (the independent Jill Stein) during the US presidential election, and of recklessly espousing a political cause that let Trump in through the backdoor. Liberals in the US, it seems, can summon more hatred for Sarandon right now than they can for Paul Ryan.
In the past few weeks, this particular blog has been building a reputation for accuracy. For example, similar details of current allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Sylvester Stallone, Kevin Spacey, and others had appeared in its former blind items.
Uma Thurman has said Harvey Weinstein does not “deserve a bullet” and suggested she has been a victim of sexual harassment.
The actress, who earlier this month said she was too angry to share her thoughts on the slew of allegations that have rocked Hollywood, broke her silence in an emotional Thanksgiving post on Instagram – saying: “I’m glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet”.
John Wayne was an overcompensating pawn — if you take The Atlantic’s word for it.
Reviewing Nancy Shoenberger’s book, “Wayne and Ford: The Films, the Friendship, and the Forging of an American Hero” in this month’s issue of the once-great magazine, Stephen Metcalf soliloquizes on the two icons of early American cinema: director John Ford and his protegé: The Duke himself.
Ford was a manic, closeted homosexual, Metcalf implies. Wayne, a “hollow” shell of a propaganda stunt: a bumbling buffoon used naively to propel the myth of American masculinity on the big screen.
Rashida Jones is still credited as a writer on Toy Story 4, the next installment in the beloved franchise. But, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter, the actress and her writing partner at the time, Will McCormack, left the project early on after John Lasseter, the acclaimed head of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation, made an unwanted advance.
Reality check: To maintain the purity of the Revolution, she should have sent a stalwart progressive to the guillotine, Robespierre-style:
When passing in front of Robespierre’s house, on the way to the guillotine, Danton rose from his fatal seat, turned toward Robespierre’s house and said, “You will follow us shortly. Your house shall be beaten down and sowed with salt.”(58) Not content with seeing his enemies pass his house, Robespierre followed them to the place of execution.(59)
That’s true progressivism. So yes, she is finished. She is not ruthless enough.
The Observer says it obtained access to the list, which contains the names of almost 100 actors, publicists, producers, and former Weinstein Co. employees, whom he appeared to identify as part of a strategy to prevent his accusers from going public.
The fact is that Hollywood’s condemnation of Spacey, who apparently is truly guilty of child abuse, is completely arbitrary. Hollywood has no real moral basis for the finger pointing, for to judge justly requires a knowledge of right and wrong; and Hollywood in general does not believe in right and wrong, particularly when it comes to sexual behavior.
A former model and actor is accusing Star Trek icon George Takei of sexual assault in 1981. The accuser, Scott R. Brunton, who was 23 at the time of the alleged incident, claims that Takei took advantage of him when he was most vulnerable.
Now that comedian Louis C.K. has admitted to egregious sexual harassment, like pulling out his sex organ and masturbating in front of women, it might be worth remembering that this man has some powerful fans and promoters, starting with Jon Stewart, who called him “one of my all-time favorite comedians.”
