The United States Waited 31 Years to Arrest Polanksi

Why, Now? The United States Waited 31 Years to Arrest Polanksi

Why was Roman Polanski arrested in the extraditable country of Switzerland this week? The real question is why wasn’t Polanski, who owns a home there, arrested on any of his previous visits? A little digging supports the obvious, repeating theme: It was all Polanski’s fault. The Smoking Gun reported earlier this year that the original grand jury testimony for Polanski’s 1977 rape trial had recently been unsealed. How recently? Not long after December, when The New York Times reported that lawyers for Polanski requested dismissal of the charges. To support their request, Polanski’s lawyers pointed to possible prosecutor and judicial misconduct as highlighted in Marina Zenovich’s 2008 documentary about the trial, “Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired.” So transcripts of the 13 year old victim’s frank and heartbreaking testimony are now available through a Google search. Polanski can probably thank nobody but himself for that. Coverage of the horrifying transcripts is after the jump.

A Jimmy Kimmel And Sarah Silverman Sex Tape? Say It Ain’t So.

Do Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman have a sex tape? Do I want to know the answer to that question? If there is one, and I’m forced to watch it, can I stab my eyes out afterward? These are the pressing questions of the day. Some random dude in Canada says Kimmel and Silverman made a sex tape when they were “on vacation a few years ago.” Purportedly, they “forgot” the camera, and now a resort employee is shopping the tape. The screen caps show a glimpse of somebody who could be anybody, including one of my exes, on top of someone else who you can’t see at all. Also: These knuckleheads aren’t even together anymore. I remain dubious and horrified. We will continue to bring you more of this terrifying sex tape gone wrong story as it continues to break my will to live. [ZackTaylor] Keep reading »

Screech Is No Longer Saved By The Bell

Well, this is really sad, you guys. Dustin Diamond, the twerp who played dorky Screech on “Saved By The Bell,” appeared on Fox News yesterday to promote his book, Behind The Bell, a tell-all about the dirt behind the scenes of the ’90s teen sitcom. I don’t know whether to feel more disturbed by his geometric facial hair, his strange Dr. Evil laugh, or his obvious bitterness over his former castmates’ (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez) relative success. You may remember several years ago when Diamond faced foreclosure on his home in Port Washington, WI, a suburb of Milwaukee, and sold t-shirts for $15 with “I paid 15 dollars to help Screeech [sic] save his house” emblazoned on the front. He explained he had to include an extra “e” in Screeech because of copyright laws. Later it came out that his house was never at risk for foreclosure and the whole thing had been a publicity stunt! This wasn’t quite as bad as the publicity stunt he pulled later that year when a sex tape — probably leaked by him — showing him ejaculating on an apple pie hit the internet. The guy’s such a hot desperate mess, the juiciest “dirt” in his tell-all seems to be that cast members allegedly took steroids while doing the show. “You can see about 25 pounds of growth,” Diamond screeches, referring to Gosselaar, who happened to star on the series and its spin-off between the ages of 15-21 when guys tend to, you know, grow a lot. Dudes, I think I smell a bestseller. [via BuzzFeed and Wikipedia] Keep reading »

6 Cases Of Hollywood Baby Daddy Drama

Jude Law isn’t buying silver rattles for Samantha Burke’s baby just yet. The unknown model/actress says that the babe is his, but rumor has it Jude doesn’t want to meet the child until he’s seen the results of a paternity test and knows it’s his. Also, maybe he wants to feel like he’s on an episode of “The Jerry Springer Show”? According to a source, “If [Jude] is the father he will meet his obligations to the child. He’s hoping for an early chance to establish that he is genuinely her dad.” The father of three allegedly paid for Burke’s antenatal care as a kind gesture—not as admittance to fatherhood. [Holy Moly]

But Jude’s not the only one in Hollywood questioning his fatherdom. Here’s a look at five other cases. Keep reading »

Newsflash: Jon Gosselin Desperately Trying To Stall Divorce From Kate

Stop the divorce presses! We’ve heard via Popeater that Jon Gosselin has had a change of heart and now no longer wants to divorce Kate, who just a few weeks ago he accused of verbally abusing him and said he “despised.” Jon’s lawyer has put in a request that the divorce be stalled for 90 days. “I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated…I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon,” he’s supposedly told In Touch magazine. “[This time will] enable Kate and me to restore our relationship as cooperative parents and to open up our lines of communication…Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family—not destroy it.”

I don’t know, buddy. The skeptic in me says that the media frenzy has died down and he got the word that TLC was changing the show’s name from “Jon & Kate Plus Eight” to “Kate Plus Eight,” and asked himself, “What can I do to stay in the spotlight? Begging for forgiveness could work.” [In Touch via Popeater] Keep reading »

It’s All Tears On Tyra’s Teens And Parents Sex Summit


My love-hate relationship with “The Tyra Show” strikes again: Yesterday Tyra hosted her first-ever Teens and Parents: Sex Summit all about teen sex. Alas, calling it a “summit” is a rather grand way to describe 13-, 14- and 15-year-old girls dishing about the dozens of boys they’ve slept with, while their moms sit backstage doing the face-palm reaction.

Throughout her show, Tyra shared little tidbits of information with the audience about what the kids are up to these days, like having sex in public places (79 percent) or hooking up with two people in one night (58 percent). Wowza! Where did she get these so-called “stats”? They were gleaned from visitors to Tyra’s website who filled out a survey about teen sex, with questions seemed more designed for shock value than usefulness, like, “Have you ever had sex on your parents’ bed?” Keep reading »
