Dov Charney’s hipster skeezbaggery is well-documented. However, a Brooklyn judge has tossed a $260 million lawsuit against the American Apparel CEO — brought by a former worker who said Dovney forced her to become a “sex slave” — and ordered it be settled in arbitration. Irene Morales, 21, said three years ago, when she was a student, Dov locked her inside his Manhattan apartment and kept her there as his personal sex slave, forcing her to perform oral sex for several hours.  

Lawyers for Dov Charney paint a different story. They say that Irene Morales pursued Dov, offering sex while trying to get him to give her one of his laptops to use for school, as well as money.  His legal team used the two arguments that always come up in these young-girl-accuses-rich-guy-of-sex-abuse scenarios: she’s trying to extort him (money grubbing!) and she had sent explicit photos and messages where she promised sex acts in exchange for goodies (slut!).

Some standup comedians — okay, probably only Russell Brand — are swimming in tail, while others aren’t sure how to find a sexual partner without sounding like you deserve a blowjob just because you’re on TV. In this preview clip for a $5 standup special available on his website, “Parks and Rec” star Aziz Ansari wants us to believe he is in the latter category. Somehow, I have a hard time believing the only people who freak out around him are bros. [YouTube]

I’ve long been pestering Amelia to film The Frisky staff reading the meanest, funniest, trolliest comments we’ve gotten on our posts. There are some real gems out there. But it seems the staff of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has slunk into my brain and snatched my idea. In honor of Twitter’s sixth birthday, Jimmy got everyone from Will Farrell to Kristen Bell to Kathy Griffin to read their 140-character, gramatically incorrect hate mail.

Which is fine. Everyone knows that people in the public eye don’t have feelings.  [YouTube/JimmyKimmelLive]

John Hart and Dennis Mayer, both of Southern California, were arrested this week on the Caribbean island of Dominica after they were seen “naked, fondling each other” from the balcony of their cabin Celebrity Summit cruise ship in plain sight of people on land.  Both seafaring sodomites plead guilty in court today to “indecent exposure” but claimed they weren’t committing public acts of buggery. ”They were struck by the beautiful mountains, the clean and clear fresh air and were having a few cocktails, and so threw caution to the wind,” their lawyer told the Dominican court. Cocktails? Fresh air? Beautiful mountains? Suuure they were just hangin’ out.
