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.

Victoria Rowell Explains Her Obama Gown At The 2009 Emmys

If Victoria Rowell had worn her Obama gown to the Emmy Awards last year, it probably wouldn’t have been so shocking because a lot of celebs were showing their support for Barack Obama‘s presidential campaign at that time. But she donned a dress with his face all over it at a time when most people are still trying to figure out whether it’s appropriate to still wear their Obama paraphernalia now that he’s president. Victoria said she was trying to make a statement and she certainly did, but I think her reasoning was lost in the shock value. She told Essence.com that health care reform was her motive for wearing the gown …

Ben Folds And Nick Hornby Write An Ode To Levi Johnston


I have mixed feelings about Levi Johnston. On the one hand, he’s hot. But on the other, he’s one of those people who just won’t go away. So I’m laughing pretty hard at this hilarious song “Levi Johnston’s Blues” by Ben Folds and Nick Hornby. In the tune, the musician and novelist rip into the Alaskan big papa, portraying him as ignorant, childish and just plain ridic. Ben and Nick poke fun at the Palins while they’re at it. My fave line: “I get on my dirtbike and ride to my girl’s. I’m gonna lay down the law and tell her what’s goin on. I’m a fucking redneck I like to hang out with the boys, play some hockey, do some fishin’ and kill some moose.” Keep reading »

Kanye West Gets Dissed Big Time On Wikipedia

We’re all a little frustrated with Kanye West right about now, but someone recently vented by editing his now-protected Wikipedia page with enough insults to humble Mr. West for at least a day or two, if that’s even possible. Here’s what the now-gone version of the page said:

“Kanye West is a dope dealing, crack smoking, cocaine sniffing, no talent, immature, cowardly, racist son of a bitch who doesn’t even DESERVE to be on a stage or in a studio. He is also a spoiled rotten Mama’s Boy who screams and cries and stamps his foot and throws a tantrum when he doesn’t get his way. I bet his dead mother is happy that she doesn’t have to put up with his lame ass s**t anymore. His true colors have come out. F**K YOU, KANYE! After your actions tonight at the MTV VMA’s you have sealed your career in a lead lined coffin which I sincerely hope is on it’s way to the bottom of the deepest, darkest hole at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.”

Wow, that’s harsh! This is just further evidence that celebs shouldn’t drink when there’s a microphone and a camera nearby. [Wikipedia via Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Megan Fox And Amanda Seyfried Make Out In “Jennifer’s Body”


In our exclusive, much-talked-about interview with screenwriter Diablo Cody, Cody discussed a buzz-generating scene in her latest flick, “Jennifer’s Body,” in which Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried make out. “They’re beautiful girls, the scene is hot — I’m not afraid to say that,” she asserted. So, is it really hot or not? Here’s the video evidence, so you can judge for yourself. “I know when I was a teenaged girl,” Cody says, “the friendships that I had with other girls were almost romantic, they were so intense.” Apparently, this is only the beginning of the scene, but it’s pretty steamy.

“Top Model” Gets Arrested For Disorderly Conduct

Brittany “Bre” Scullark, an “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle Five semi-finalist, was arrested in NYC yesterday for disorderly conduct. She argued with a woman in a Starbucks who claimed Bre had taken her laptop and wouldn’t give it back. Bre claims she wasn’t trying to steal the woman’s laptop. She thought it belonged to a relative who was with her. When the woman asked for it back, Bre became rowdy and spewed a string of expletives and insults, insisting the laptop belonged to her family member. The police were called, and she was taken into custody and issued a summons. Bre will go before a judge at a later date, but this isn’t the first time she’s over-reacted. You may remember the time she poured out another model’s Red Bull because she suspected her of eating her food, during her cycle of “ANTM.” Sadly, Bre isn’t the only “Top Model” with bad manners. In July, we learned Caridee English is a complete slob even when she’s subletting. [TMZ] Keep reading »
