Bill Cosby’s efforts to get his sexual assault conviction overturned has been denied. He tried to get testimony from 5 different women thrown out because the allegations were more than 15 years old and the court wasn’t buying it.
Actor Cuba Gooding Jr is facing a slew of accusations from 7 more women…bringing the count to 22 women who have said that he sexually. What women are saying about him, is incredibly disturbing. The actor’s lawyer says that he denies all claims and insists that people are coming forward, as they normally do when a case becomes public like this.
Last but not least Harvey Weinstein reached a tentative $25mil settlement with dozens of his alleged victims yesterday. ($47 mil if you count the legal costs). Insurance companies representing the Weinstein company will shell out the full amount. More than 30 women have accused him of sexual misconduct and they will split that money…some getting more than others. A judge still has to approve the settlement and he’s still slated to go on trial in January on charges involving two women.
Disney is getting sued because of a slogan that was used in the movie and on a LOT of merchandise in Frozen 2″Trust Your Journey”. Apparently it’s a slogan that a Nevada based company has been using since 2007. Their company is called Trust your journey and THEY have been selling merchandise for many years in places like QVC and Cracker Barrel and online. But frozen 2 is raking in the dough and it’s approaching a billion dollars at the box office. So the case is…stop using the slogan, or fork over some money from the sales.

In order to land one of her most famous roles, Reese Witherspoon recalls being told to “dress sexy” for a meeting to help her land Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde.” In 2000, Witherspoon, then in her early 20s, had just come off playing the over-achieving Tracy Flick in “Election,” and she said the studio wasn’t convinced she was right for the role of Elle. “They thought I was a shrew,” the now-43-year-old told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Wednesday. “My manager finally called and said, ‘You’ve got to go meet with the studio head because he will not approve you. He thinks you really are your character from “Election” and that you’re repellent.’ And then I was told to dress sexy.” She continued, “And you’re 23, you have a baby at home, you need the money and you’re being told that by people who know what they’re doing. It’s funny to think of all the things we were told to do back then because now you’re thinking, ‘Oh God, if somebody told my daughter to do that, she’d be like, I really hope you’re joking.’” Witherspoon said she went through multiple auditions before she got the job.“I remember a room full of men who were asking me questions about being a coed and being in a sorority, even though I had dropped out of college four years earlier and I have never been inside a sorority house,” she said.
