  • 20 NEW ALLEGATIONS UNCOVERED AGAINST KEVIN SPACEY

  • Fri, 17 Nov 2017 01:00:00 EST

    When news broke that Kevin Spacey was accused of sexually harassing multiple men, The Old Vic Theatre, opened up an investigation.

    Spacey served as the artistic director there for 11 years, and in that time, 20 allegations of sexual misconduct occurred, according to the Old Vic’s investigation.

    • The theatre set up an anonymous tip line and per the investigation, "16 staff and four others came forward with a number of allegations against Spacey between 1995 and 2013."
    • No one took legal action against Spacey, and the theatre acknowledges that Spacey’s "cult of personality" may have discouraged such action.
    • "During his tenure, The Old Vic was in a unique position of having a Hollywood star at the helm around whom existed a cult of personality," a statement from The Old Vic reads. "The investigation found that his stardom and status at The Old Vic may have prevented people, and in particular junior staff or young actors, from feeling that they could speak up or raise a hand for help."
    • The nature of the allegations are unknown but the Guardian reports that 14 were serious enough to prompt the theatre to encourage complainants to report them to the police.


  • KIM KARDASHIAN'S PERFUME MAKES $10M IN ONE DAY

  • Fri, 17 Nov 2017 01:00:00 EST

    Haters can hate all they want to, but Kim Kardashian West just proved her clan has as much relevance as ever.

    The KKW mogul made a whopping $10 million in one day. She launched her three fragrances—Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Oud and Crystal Gardenia Citrus on Wednesday. According to TMZ, sales hit $1 million in the first hour alone.

    • Only 300,000 bottles were produced, and they are expected to sell out overnight.
    • The most impressive part? None of the buyers had even smelled the perfume yet. They just bought the bottles ($60 for 75 ml, $35 for 30 ml) on the strength of her brand, her push and the packaging.
    • Kardashian West launched an all-out social media assault before she debuted the perfumes, discussing how they were inspired by the crystal healing process she underwent after her Paris robbery in 2016, and showcasing photos of the beautiful crystal packaging.

    KARDASHIAN WEST EXPLAINS WHY SURROGATE MOM WASN’T AT SHOWER

    • Meanwhile, she opened up about why she didn’t invite the surrogate mother of the third child she is expecting with Kanye West to her shower.
    • She told Loni Love on The Real that she "hadn’t really gone that far in explaining it to my kids yet."
    • "So I have to figure that out first before they really see, and then if we’re celebrating, you know, her … I just wanted to celebrate the baby," explains Kardashian West.


  • AMBER HEARD DISCUSSES 'BURDEN' OF BEING A ROLE MODEL

  • Fri, 17 Nov 2017 01:00:00 EST

    Amber Heard says she didn’t set out to inspire women. But she unwittingly did when she divorced one of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars, Johnny Depp, in May of 2016.

    That’s because, in court documents, she laid out the case that Depp had been "verbally and physically abusive," which he denied through his lawyer.

    • Months later, they issued a joint statement saying their "relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love."
    • Heard received $7 million from Depp, which she promised to donate to the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.
    • She covers GQ Australia’s December cover, and inside, she discusses what it’s like to become a role model.
    • "I feel incredibly fortunate that I'm in a position where I could be of any help." Heard, 31, says. "At times it's a burden to consider that your life is no longer just yours and it's not private. It can be hard to know that you can't function in full—that anonymity is no longer a valid goal and that your actions and words, whether they're done on a red carpet or in the most intimate corners of your personal life, to know that those aren't fully yours anymore. That's a difficult realization to come to when it does hit you. It's severe but you grow and move on from that, and on balance, I take into consideration all of the incredible fortune I have being in this position."
    • She also spoke out about the horrific sexual misconduct allegations that have been filed against multiple Hollywood men, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Brett Ratner.
    • "You scratch your head wondering why women go through this sort of harm most often behind closed doors," she said. "Just look at how we treat those who do come forward? We have a long history of dismantling and discrediting women with ease in a public theatre. So, you can understand why it would be so intimidating to say anything whether you're a man or a woman. It's a club as well, a small world. And I imagine that being that small it adopts a certain posture."

    • On the backlash she received over the pics, she said: "I think you just get to a certain point after you have been hated on so much that you just realize that people are gonna say what they are gonna say no matter what and it really doesn’t matter, you can’t care."
    • Meanwhile, Winter is close with her onscreen co-star Sarah Hyland IRL. She told Entertainment Tonight that "We love each other honestly. These people are our family, and we are just the luckiest people in the world," adding that she’d "love" to go on a double date with Hyland her new boyfriend Wells Adams.


  • PATTON OSWALT OPENS UP ABOUT FINDING LOVE AFTER HIS WIFE'S DEATH

  • Fri, 17 Nov 2017 01:00:00 EST

    Patton Oswalt is head over heels in love with his new bride, Meredith Salenger. Their union has not been without controversy, however, as it occurred 18 months after his first wife’s death.

    Oswalt and Salenger tied the knot in front of family and friends on November 4th. His first wife, Michelle McNamara, died unexpectedly in her sleep in April of 2016, leaving behind their daughter Alice, 8.

    • Oswalt opened up to People about the whirlwind of emotions he’s feeling.
    • "It feels like an evolution," Oswalt, 48, tells People. "After the darkness, I went through all the ways I had to strengthen myself to try to recognize joy again. Meredith was a beacon I had to reach for."
    • In many ways, he says, their union felt fateful.
    • "When I first starting talking with Patton on Facebook, it was just sort of witty banter," says Salenger, 47. "There was nothing to it, but as I started getting to know him better, I looked up Michelle on Facebook and I saw that we had like 15 mutual friends. One of them was my best friend since 7th grade. I called her and was like, ‘Tell me about Michelle.’ She was best friends with Michelle after college. She was like, ‘I loved her. She’s amazing. She’s so funny and smart.’ "
    • Oswalt adds that he is grateful that Salenger has become close with Alice and even McNamara’s family.
    • "It just felt like worlds were connecting and everything was okay again," says Oswalt. "We’re still floating on this other level that we’ve been on since the day we met."

    GWYNETH PALTROW SAYS SHE IS NOT COMPETING WITH REESE WITHERSPOON OR JESSICA ALBA: Gwyneth Paltrow says she is tired of being publicly pitted against fellow actresses-turned-business moguls. At an event hosted by the female-driven networking app Bumble, she said there’s "an age old, embedded in the DNA" notion that women don’t support each other.

You hear some of these heart-wrenching, awful stories — and I have a daughter — it is heartbreaking. But it’s not been part of my experience."

    STACY LONDON BLOCKS CLINTON KELLY ON TWITTER: Feud alert! Former What Not To Wear cohosts Stacy London and Clinton Kelly are no longer besties on social media. Kelly surprised fans, revealing that London blocked him on Twitter. "Alllll righty then," he wrote, alongside a screenshot of the block. When he asked what was going on, The Chew co-host responded with an enigmatic: "The tea is old. And I never spill tea unless I’m shook, which I’m not." Observers speculate that the ill-will may stem from his January 2017 memoir I Hate Everyone, Except You, in which he explained that behind-the-scenes, their interactions were less than picture-perfect. "I either adored her or despised her and never anything in between," Kelly confessed. "We spent nearly sixty hours a week in captivity, rarely more than an arm’s length away from each other. Trust me when I tell you that that is just too much time to spend with any other human being you didn’t choose of your own free will."

"This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone.

The girl reportedly did not want to press charges because she was scared and humiliated, and signed a "no prosecution" form.
