Out of the grey, desolate bleakness, a new hero has emerged. Show me a woman who managed to, in 4 days, watch 55 episodes of Friends at work while getting paid, and I’ll show you an icon. Her name is Chase Robinson, but instead of being rewarded for her astounding achievements in workplace don’t-give-a-fuckatude, she’s being punished with a $6 million dollar lawsuit brought on by her former employer, Robert De Niro. Sure, Chase may have also been accused of a little light embezzlement on the side, but how else was she supposed to eat lunch while watching Netflix at work if not for the Canal Productions company credit card? Did Bobby expect her to bring a bologna sandwich from home or some shit? Hell to the naw.
Danke for nothing Wayne! A woman just filed a lawsuit against Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton (no that picture is not from Madame Tussauds) claiming her daughter was “viciously attacked” by Wayne’s pet monkey when she was visiting Casa de Shenandoah, Wayne’s former residence turned tourist attraction turned palace of nightmares for a poor Capuchin monkey named Boo who was once Wayne’s beloved pet. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Casa de Shenandoah opened to the public in 2015. Though it closed in 2018, while it was open, visitors were able to tour Wayne’s opulent mansion as well as the home’s extensive grounds which include an Arabian horse farm and a private zoo. Nice for Wayne, but is sounds like hell for Boo.
The Church Of Scientology Is Being Sued For Kidnapping, Human Trafficking, And A Slew Of Other Alleged Crimes
I hope Leah Remini is having a great day and is kicking back somewhere with an icy cold glass of pinot gris and cackling at the news that one of the participants of her Emmy award-winning show Scientology and The Aftermath, has filed a lawsuit against the Church of Scientology, David Misgave, and “25 other unnamed correspondents”, according to Rolling Stone.
I guess Kevin Spacey doesn’t really have any pressing plans this summer, so he showed up in a Nantucket court today to sneer at opposing counsel during a pre-trial hearing for his sexual assault and battery case. He wasn’t required to be there, but maybe he figured since he already had his summer weight linen suit pressed, he might as well make an appearance. Previously, Kevin had tried hard to avoid having to appear.
Kevin is accused of groping an 18-year-old busboy after his shift at the Club Car bar in Nantucket back in 2016. The alleged victim’s mom is former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh. According to TMZ, Kevin’s team used the hearing to urge the judge to compel both the alleged victim and his mom to hand over their cell phones, suggesting that data may have been deleted before records were handed over to the police.
Michael Avenatti is the walking, talking punchline to every dumb lawyer joke you’ve ever heard. In addition to the fraud and embezzlement charges he’s already facing for allegedly defrauding his clients to pad his own pockets, and a lawsuit brought by Nike accusing him of extortion, new allegations that he defrauded his main meal ticket Stormy Daniels have emerged. According to the AP, Michael is accused of forging Stormy’s signature and stealing her book advance to pay for his “extravagant lifestyle”. Q: What’s the difference between a Michael Avenatti and a hooker? A: a hooker only screws one person at a time. See, it works every time!
Redmond O’Neal, the son of Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett, has been in jail awaiting trial for attempted murder, among other charges, since last May. Redmond’s “crime spree”, which lasted several days, included allegedly trying to rob a Venice Beach 7/11 with a knife, allegedly punching a man in the head who tried to speak to him, allegedly stabbing somebody in the face at the Venice boardwalk, and allegedly attacking another man with a bottle. The alleged victim of the latter assault is a man named Ken Fox, and he claims that the attack was a hate crime. And he’s suing Redmond for $100 million in damages. Nothing alleged about that.
