Rihanna Talks To Glamour About Chris Brown Assault

Rihanna is finally opening up about the physical abuse she suffered by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in an interview with Glamour magazine. They interviewed Rihanna for their annual Women Of The Year issue, ostensibly to speak up for domestic violence survivors, which is a brave move for her to make. But honestly? Rihanna’s statement is of the “no, duh” variety and sounds like it was written/watered down by PR folks and lawyers. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: 6 Bodies Found At Cleveland Rapist’s Home

  • Six women’s bodies were found at the home of Anthony Sowell, 50, of Cleveland, Ohio, when police arrested him on a rape and felony assault warrant last Thursday. Sowell already served 15 years in prison for a 1989 rape of a 21-year-old woman. Although the bodies have not yet been identified, at least two women who lived within several blocks of Sowell went missing over the summer. [CBS News]
  • Illinois’ parental notification law, which requires physicians to inform a parent or guardian when a girl under the age of 17 wants an abortion, will go into effect tomorrow. The parent or guardian will not be allowed to give consent, but he or she must be notified about the abortion. Girls can bypass notifying their parents by going before a judge, but the judge has 48 hours to rule. Parental notification also isn’t required in the case of a medical emergency or if the girl declares in writing that she is the victim of sexual abuse. [Chicago Tribune]

“Twilight” Producers Thought Robert Pattinson Was Too Fugly To Be A Vampire

It’s hard to imagine Robert Pattinson as anything but a total stud who makes us cream our panties. But lo and behold, when director Catherine Hardwicke presented her casting choice to Twilight‘s producers, those goons weren’t sure this vampiric hunk was Edward material! (By his own admission, RPatz had been “getting drunk for a year” before.) In an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Hardwicke dished:

“[The producers] called me up and they literally said, ‘Catherine, do you think you can make this guy look good?’ So I said, ‘Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to get his hair back to a different color, do a different style. He would work with a trainer from now on. My cinematographer is great with lighting. He will study the cheekbones, and I promise you, we’ll make the guy look good.’”

Mission accomplished, indeed. After the jump, a smoldering Pattinson pic from Vanity Fair‘s dee-lish slideshow: Keep reading »

Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt: More Alleged Domestic Violence, Celeb-Style

The New York Post is reporting Paris Hilton and her boyfriend, Doug Reinhardt, had a “boozy grapple” after a Halloween party on Friday night that led to what I would call domestic violence. Hilton and her boyfriend attended Heidi Klum and Seal’s Halloween party and then hit up another bash at L.A.’s Roosevelt hotel. When the couple got into their limo at 3:30 a.m., the publicity-hungry twosome were apparently three sheets to the wind. At some point during the drive home, witnesses, including paparazzi, allegedly saw a cell phone chucked from the limo’s window and then the vehicle abruptly stopped. Allegedly, Hilton got out of the limo, searched the ground for it (it was later located and given back to her by a paparazzo), and in front of a bunch of witnesses, scolded Reinhardt for throwing it out the window. When she got back in the car, Hilton allegedly slapped and kicked Reinhardt and he then used his left hand to choke and restrain her. “[Doug] was holding her around the neck saying, ‘Relax, relax,’” a photog told the Post.

Frisky Rant: Family Members Should STFU About Weight Gain

I don’t know about you folks, but for me, a weekend with the rents is always fraught with tension. Is Mom going to pester me about brushing my hair? Is Dad going to ask me how much money I’m saving? Will they bristle if my boyfriend and I sleep in the same bed?

But I didn’t see Sunday morning’s battle royale coming at all.

Mom and I were hanging out in her bedroom; she was smoking a cigarette and I was scratching my cat behind the ears. Then Mom furrowed her brow, scrunched up her face and examined my pajamas-clad body. “You know, Jess,” she remarked, “you’ve put on some weight.”

My eyes bulged. Fire was breathed. Thunder boomed. Lightening crackled. The cat cowered in fear under the bed. Keep reading »
