Guys: If You See This Girl, Run In The Opposite Direction

Crystal Gail Mangum really knows how to stir up trouble. In case you don’t remember her, she is the stripper who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape back in 2006. Yeah … rape is not really the kind of thing to lie about. The case caused such a stir that the Durham District…

Lauren Conrad Wants To Talk To You About Domestic Violence

This week I went to a Mark makeup event in Soho and saw two important things (among others): this new PSA on preventing violence against women and Mark’s spokesperson, Lauren Conrad, in the flesh. (Regarding the latter, she is one of those celebs who’s even cuter in real life!) The presentation also introduced…

Gary Coleman In Jail For Domestic Violence

You know what sitcom star trend must stop, instantly? Domestic violence. Following in Charlie Sheen’s not-so-shiny footsteps, Gary Coleman of “Diff’rent Strokes” was arrested for domestic violence over the weekend in Utah. He and wife Shannon Price, who he met on the set of a movie called “Church Ball,” have a history of issues—they appeared…

More “Teen Mom” Dysfunction: A Choking Incident And An Arrest

The 54-year-old mother of “Teen Mom” Farrah Abraham was arrested over the weekend for allegedly choking and hitting Farrah while the two argued over childcare. Debra Danielson is now facing domestic abuse/serious assault charges. The two were arguing when Debra threw an MTV T-shirt that landed “on or near” Farrah’s infant, Sophia. That’s when Farrah…

Why Is Tiger Woods America’s Bad Guy, Not Charlie Sheen?

On Christmas night, I sauntered into the kitchen to pour myself a glass of milk when my dad turned away from the TV to tell me that Charlie Sheen had been arrested for domestic violence. A major TV star? Domestic violence on Christmas? Zut alors! Blogger Jessica sprang to action: I hit up TMZ and…

Brooke Mueller Claimed Charlie Sheen Threatened Her With A Knife

Charlie Sheen’s klassy Christmas Day domestic violence arrest just keeps getting more sordid! TMZ claims law enforcement sources said Sheen allegedly threatened his wife, Brooke Mueller, with a knife and police observed marks on her body which may have come from a scuffle.

But Mueller is no class act herself. The mother of…

Charlie Sheen Arrested For Domestic Violence On Christmas

Stripper-lovin’ Charlie Sheen is keeping it klassy, as usual. Sheen was arrested in Aspen yesterday for allegedly assaulting his wife, Brooke Mueller, mother to his twin boys. Sheen was released later in the day after posting $8,500 bail.

Apparently, cops responded to a 911 call on Christmas morning from Mueller, claiming Sheen assaulted her.

Who’s Worse For Rihanna: Chris Brown Or Her Manager?

An easy story for GQ would have been just another Rihanna puff piece, like the disappointingly bland one Glamour ran. GQ could have just let Rihanna say, “Domestic violence is bad! I wear funky clothes! Buy my album!” and have left it at that. But in the article “Good Girl Gone Badass,” journalist Lisa DePaulo…

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Has A Girlfriend Ever Hit You?

Ever since Tiger Woods was in that car accident last week and rumors swirled that his wife Elin Nordegren had scratched his face during a fight (and may have gone after him with a golf club) there’s been buzz about female-on-male domestic violence. I confessed to having once hit a boyfriend and the comments o…

Girl Talk: I Hit My Boyfriend

Years ago, when I was about, oh, a year into my relationship with my now ex, he and I got in a fight (over what, who knows), I lost my temper, and I started hitting him. Not in the face, but on his arms, my fists balled up. I think I shoved him a few…

Does “SNL” Think Domestic Violence Against Tiger Woods Is Funny?

I had uncomfortable feelings about this “Saturday Night Live” skit where Kenan Thompson and Blake Lively make fun of Elin Nordegren allegedly beating up Tiger Woods. Ever since the Woods/Nordegren shiz-nit went down over Thanksgiving, I’ve been noodling a blog post about how I’ve heard and read nothing condemning Nordegren’s what-sounds-a-lot-like domestic violence against…

“Twilight” Love Story Has All The Components Of An Abusive Relationship

One of the primary criticisms of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series is that the incredibly idealized love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen is actually, well, kind of creepy and pathetic. But an eagle-eyed blogger has noted that their relationship — beloved by teenage girls and their sisters and mothers — fits the profile of…

Chris Brown Un-Invited From “Good Morning America” Performance

“Good Morning America” has finally come to their senses had a change of heart and realized booting boy-kisser Adam Lambert off their show while booking an appearance by girlfriend-beater Chris Brown wasn’t a smart move. After admitting they received tons of complaints for this switcheroo (including from Frisky readers!), this weekend ABC un-invited Brown from…

Quotable: Patrick Stewart On Speaking Out Against Domestic Violence

“The truth is that domestic violence touches many of us. It is very possible that someone you know – a friend, sister, daughter or colleague – is experiencing abuse. One in four women will experience domestic violence at some point in her lifetime. And every week two women are killed by a current or former…

Football Losses Linked To Uptick In Domestic Violence

We know that dudes, and many ladies, take their football really seriously. And, of course, losing sucks. But did you know it could also be dangerous? A new study shows that episodes of domestic violence are linked to local NFL losses. Yikes. Researchers looked at domestic violence reports from 1995 to 2006 and found that…

Anthony Michael Hall Accused Of Stalking And Attacking His Ex

Watching “Sixteen Candles” and “Weird Science,” it’s hard to imagine Anthony Michael Hall as anything but a sweet, docile, adorable little dude. But according to the New York Post that is so not the case. Allegedly, he stalked and assaulted Diana Falzone, his ex-girlfriend, a TV and radio host. According to court docs they dug…

“Hit The Bitch” Web Campaign Is Actually Anti-Domestic Violence, Got It?

Finding new, exciting, and creative ways to tell men that they shouldn’t hit women is tough, ain’t it? Which is probably why a Danish anti-domestic violence group came up with this ill-advised “Hit The Bitch” web campaign, in which users are encouraged to repeatedly punch a woman’s face until, eventually, they’re admonished for being “100%…

Rihanna Says She Couldn’t “Be Responsible For Going Back” To Chris Brown

The first part of Diane Sawyer’s interview with Rihanna aired on “Good Morning America” today and her admissions about the abuse she suffered at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown were far beyond what she acknowledged in her interview with this month’s Glamour. Tearing up at one point, Rihanna explained to Sawyer that after…
