If you thought the list of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual-assault victims was long, check out the lengths he went to make sure accusations against him never saw the light of day. In a new story for The New Yorker, Ronan Farrow reports that Weinstein hired detectives from the world's largest corporate intelligence firms to prevent allegations against him from emerging. And a ton more. Here is Megyn Kelly talking about it , Farrow also wrote, "One of the investigators pretended to be a women's-rights advocate and secretly recorded at least four meetings with [Rose] McGowan."
CBS shot a special celebrating the 50th anniversary of "The Carol Burnett Show", and Kevin Spacey was part of it. WAS. They're cutting him out.
Remember that rape allegation against Nelly? Nelly was arrested in October after a 21-year-old woman claimed the rapper sexually assaulted her on his tour bus in a Wal-Mart parking lot. The woman later refused to testify against Nelly because she felt she did not have a case against a powerful celebrity, and requested the case be dropped. However, a victim refusing to cooperate does not prevent prosecutors from charging a person, it just makes it more difficult to convict. Well, police have wrapped up their investigation and have forwarded it on for possible criminal charges. They closed the Nelly investigation last week and referred the case to the King County Prosecutor’s office and the case is currently “under review.” Investigators did not make a recommendation on whether charges should be filed, so it will be up to the prosecutor to sift through the evidence and make a final call. Nelly has denied the allegation of sexual assault.

18-year-old actor Ethan Cutkosky -- who plays William Macy's second youngest child on the show -- was arrested and booked for DUI Thursday in L.A. Ethan was driving his orange BMW around 10:30 PM and began to straddle the traffic lanes. Cops pulled him over. He did poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested on the spot. They did say they smelled weed and I believe he admitted to smoking earlier.
Maynard from Tool, Perfect Circle and, Pucifer has said in the past that he's not fond of musicians being treated like celebrities. He would like to see it get to the point where it's just people enjoying music for music's sake. It is for this reason all those bands her fronts have a strict no phones no videos policy at their shows. There are signs everywhere and in most cases someone is actually yelling out loud to fans entering the shows about the policy and that it is strictly enforced. It is also for this reason that more than 60 people were forcibly removed from A Perfect Circle's show on Saturday night (November 4th) in Reading, Pennsylvania, according to David Farrar, the General Manager of the Santander Arena & Performing Arts Center where the band performed. The concertgoers were ejected for taking pictures during the band’s set. Someone had posted after the show that he successfully took some pictures. The venues GM basically said consider yourself lucky.

"Forbes" put out its annual list of 'The World's Highest-Paid TV Hosts',
1. Dr. Phil McGraw, $79 million
2. Ellen DeGeneres, $77 million

There's been some talk of a "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" revival WITH the original cast . . . like a "Fuller House" type of thing. But ALFONSO RIBEIRO says it will, quote, "never happen.. It's hard to imagine WILL SMITH being interested, but Alfonso claims it's mainly because JAMES AVERY died in 2013. He played Uncle Phil, and Alfonso says that it's not something they want to do without him. He adds, quote, "It's wonderful that everybody loves what we did, 25 years ago. [But] people who live in the past, you're not moving forward . . . we have a saying, 'If you're standing still, you're getting passed.' I don't look back, I don't look to see what’s happening behind me, I continue to move forward."
A Change.org petition to have King of Queens star Kevin James replace accused sex criminal Kevin Spacey on House of Cards has garnered thousands of signatures in the past few days. “I think Kevin James can elevate House of Cards to a globally adored franchise like Game of Thrones and make the entire world focus on one of the most important Netfix Original series there is,” wrote the petition’s creator, Robbie Pyrma, who sent the online document to Netflix’s founder and CEO. Spacey has already been dismissed from the series, and Netflix has severed all ties with the actor.
Who is getting their own reality show…again. Here is their I NEED A REALITY SHOW RESUME’: He is continuously updating police rap sheet. He's got 15 kids with NINE different baby mamas . . . and part of the show will focus on his efforts to "rebuild his various relationships with his 15 children and their mothers." AND, there's a chance this thing doesn't even get off the ground, because he was charged with 14 counts of tax evasion this summer, and if convicted, he's looking at up to 44 years in prison . . . or roughly three per kid. ANSWER: DMX is reportedly getting his own reality show . . . again. It's been over a decade since BET aired his short-lived show "DMX: Soul of a Man" . . . and it's been a decade since people have cared about DMX as an artist.
I read this morning that Mariah Carey has booked a two-year residency deal at the Venetian Theatre at The Venetian Las Vegas hotel. It pays in the low eight figures and would begin in March of 2018. She will play several stretches of shows throughout the year, with breaks in between the blocks of shows.The deal was one of the biggest her former manager, Stella Bulochnikov, brought to the table for the star — also one of the last made before Stella split with Carey after the singer’s erratic behavior became too difficult to manage. And interstingly enough, Mariah Carey's former security company has threatened to sue her ... and the guy who owns the company says she constantly humiliated him by referring to him as a Nazi, a skinhead, a KKK member and a white supremacist. Michael Anello's lawyer says his company worked for Mariah from June 2015 to May 2017 and she owes him $221,329.51. He says he was promised another 2 years which would add $511,000. He says Mariah "wanted to be surrounded with black guys, not white people." He also makes allegations of sexual harassment. Like during a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mariah asked him to come to her room to move some luggage and when he got there, she was wearing a see-through negligee that was open. He says he tried leaving but she insisted he move the luggage. He says he left the room and there was no physical contact. Her people have chatted with them about settling up what is owe for back payment and Mariah’s lawyers say the lawsuit is now on hold, because they are in settlement negotiations.
