Mel Gibson has finally opened up about the explosive audio recordings between himself and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva that leaked onto the Internet last summer, inspiring a backlash many believe has killed the Oscar winner’s career.
“I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality — period. I don’t blame some people for thinking that though, from the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes, which have been edited,” Gibson tells Deadline. “You have to put it all in the proper context of being in an irrationally, heated discussion at the height of a breakdown, trying to get out of a really unhealthy relationship. It’s one terribly, awful moment in time, said to one person, in the span of one day and doesn’t represent what I truly believe or how I’ve treated people my entire life.” Read more… Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan is headed back to jail — again. An L.A. judge sentenced Lilo to 120 days in jail for violating her probation with that whole necklace stealing/borrowing hullabaloo. Lucky for her, the judge downgraded her felony grand theft charge to a misdemeanor. But unlucky for her, the judge told Lindz she should have notified the jewelry store that she had taken their necklace instead of allegedly only returning it after she heard cops would search her apartment for it. As of 4:30 p.m. PST, the pride of Long Island was on her way to Lynwood Correctional Facility, the same jail where she served 13 days of a 90-day sentence before being dispatched to rehab. On tonight’s return to Lynwood, Lindsay’s expected to have another mug shot taken and post bail. Lindsay was also sentenced to 480 hours of community service, including 360 hours at the Downtown Women’s Center in L.A. Maybe volunteer work will teach this freckled jailbird to mend her naughty ways? Jail doesn’t seem to be working.

Hey there, Frisky readers! A few weeks ago, when I took the day off of work, I asked readers to post their own news article and blog post links in the comments for a Today’s Lady News column, readers’ submission edition. I was so impressed by all the smartypants readers we’ve got out there that I want to do it again (and occasionally in the future, too!). The rules are the same: Submit your own links to news articles and blog posts about women, girls, trans-identified people, gender roles, feminism or sexism in the comments. Just write a sentence or two summary explaining what the link is about and give everyone a heads up if it has language or imagery that’s NSFW.
I’ll be back with our regularly scheduled Today’s Lady News on Monday. Thanks everyone! Keep reading »
Despite about a million sexual harassment lawsuits and looming bankruptcy, Dov Charney and American Apparel will be able to continue on for a little longer, thanks to a cash infusion. The T-shirt and crop-top company will get anywhere between $15 and $43 million over the next six months. “Dov is an eccentric, and he’s being butchered by investors and the press,” said Roy Sebag of Essentia Equity, one of several lenders who is helping to bail out the company. In the meantime, if you’re not sure about throwing your hard-earned cash at a man who may or may not have requested sexual favors from his female underlings but are in dire need of a new v-neck, check out what LAmade has to offer.
