Mike Rinder and Leah Remini are going all in with their support of fellow ex-cultist and accused sexual assaulter Paul Haggis. In a joint statement posted to Mike Rinder’s blog, the anti-Scientology Scooby gang of two use the old “he’s a good man” argument, and added that the charges against Paul might be a deep pocketed Scientology hit job.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; if you’ve worked with Woody Allen, have a damn answer at the ready when some journo sticks a mic in your face! Greta Gerwig was the latest celebrity to get caught on the back foot during a backstage press thingy at the Golden Globes when she was asked the inevitable question of how she feels about having worked with Woody.
In one of the mostly spectacularly tone deaf moves I’ve seen in #thesetryingtimes, Russell Simmons has started his own #movement on Instagram in an effort to express his innocence and defend himself against multiple allegations of sexual assault. Are you ready for the dawn of #NotMe?
Documentarian Morgan Spurlock spilled his own beans last night and let the world know that he has a history of sexual misconduct before anybody else could. Morgan, who had a moment back in the early aughts with his popular Super Size Me documentary, has admitted that he’s been accused of rape in the past. In an essay titled “I Am Part Of The Problem”, Spurlock also admits that he’s paid an employee off in a sexual harassment case. And that he is a cheater. And a drunk. And that’s he’s an all around world-class asshole. And that he’s been sweating out these post-Weinstein days asking himself, “When will they come for me?” Sounds refreshingly honest, doesn’t it? Well, plot twist! The statement is garbage.
It’s a terrible movie but I have a real soft spot for 1994’s It’s Pat! There’s one scene in which Pat is having a pity party and screams to their spouse Chris, “Feel sorrier for me!!!!”. I say that all the time and now disgraced perv Matt Lauer is joining in on the refrain. You see, his marriage to Dutch model Annette Roque is in trouble and “a source” (Matt with voice modulation thingy?) really wants you to know how sad that makes him.
According to People, Matt is “fighting to save his marriage” even though it’s been reported to be on the rocks since way before the allegations against him were revealed. But he needs the sympathy now in his hour of need, please and thank you.
Today is the day the pedophiles cried. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the LAPD is investigating allegations that Roman Polaski molested yet another girl back in 1975. This is the sixth woman to come forward with gross tales more terrifying than Rosemary’s Baby. Even though the statute of limitations has expired on the case and Polanski can’t be criminally charged, the LAPD is doing it anyway and karma reminds us once again that she’s a raging bitch.
