Robert De Niro is Being Sued for Creating a Hostile Environment for his Assistant to Binge-Watch Netflix
A few months ago, Robert De Niro brought a lawsuit against a former employee, accusing her of embezzling money and watching Netflix at work, which I’m not even sure is illegal. ‘Time theft’ is made-up bullshit corporate speak and far, far overshadowed by wage theft, the underpayment of employees, which comprises over half of all theft. But I digress.
Today that employee De Niro sued, Graham Chase Robinson, made headlines with some shocking allegations against De Niro when she filed her own lawsuit. And when I say shocking, I mean they sound shockingly like bullshit.
Here are the details via Page Six.
Worse, De Niro terrorized Robinson with creepy conduct — he “urinated during telephone calls” with her and would greet her wearing only his “pajamas or a bathrobe,” the suit says.
I’m sorry to inform you that peeing while you’re on the phone is bad manners but not illegal. It’s really not even as bad as texting during a movie. In fact, not only did President Lyndon Johnson have phones installed in the White House bathroom so he could take calls, he would make staff come into the bathroom for meetings while he was taking a shit.
“Among other things, De Niro would direct Ms. Robinson to scratch his back, button his shirts and prod him awake when he was in bed,” the complaint says. “De Niro also stood idly by while his friend slapped Ms. Robinson on her buttocks.”
Okay, so, if the ass-slapping thing is true, that’s not acceptable. The other stuff is, again, who cares. Oh no, your boss made you wake him up.
The 19-page lawsuit includes a link to a 51-second recording of a voicemail she claims De Niro once left her when she didn’t pick up her phone.
“You f–king don’t answer my calls. How dare you? You’re about to be fired. You’re f–king history,” he seethes in the undated message. “This is bulls–t. How dare you f–king disrespect me? You gotta be f–king kidding me, you spoiled brat! F–k you!”
I mean, I get yelling at someone who you’re paying to binge watch Friends. It is disrespectful. Should he be nicer? Yes. Should this woman get $12 million for it? Nope.

It’s been almost two years since we heard the first allegations the something untoward was going on at James Franco’s acting school. For starters, people were taking acting lessons from James Franco. I kid, Franco is actually a really good actor, which is lucky for him because he’s a terrible writer.
The New York Times reports Franco is now being sued by two of the women who attended his acting school who are basically claiming that it was just an excuse to find women to get naked in the background of Franco’s overindulgent indie films.
Ms. Tither-Kaplan said she went on to take the class, which provided a stepping stone to roles in Mr. Franco’s independent films, some of which remain unreleased. In these roles, Ms. Tither-Kaplan said, she was often asked to appear in nude scenes or sex scenes. During the making of an orgy scene for one of his films, Mr. Franco removed plastic guards that covered other actresses’ vaginas while he simulated oral sex on them, according to the lawsuit.
As far as I can tell, this is the most serious of the allegations, Franco removing the protective vagina covering during simulated sex scenes. Also, if you take the plastic cover off of a vagina then you won’t be able to tell if they’ve been tampered with. Little known fact.
Franco denies the allegations.
In a statement, Mr. Franco’s lawyer Michael Plonsker denied the accusations and called the lawsuit “ill-informed.”
“James will not only fully defend himself, but will also seek damages from the plaintiffs and their attorneys for filing this scurrilous publicity-seeking lawsuit,” Mr. Plonsker said.
I can’t take a man named Plonsker seriously, it’s one letter away from being a British penis.
James Franco is, by all accounts, a bit of a creep. Unfortunately, you can’t really sue someone for being a creep. And I doubt that James Franco’s acting lessons were actually worthless, he is a good actor. The fact that years later you haven’t heard any of these women’s names is probably a decent indicator of why Franco didn’t give them larger speaking roles in his films.

Joe Giudice is on his way to Italy.
But the reality star is still holding out hope that it’s just a vacation.
Scroll down to see what we mean…
Judges have granted Giudice‘s request to be released from ICE custody and move to Italy, which is the country where he was born and where he may be forced to relocate on a permanent basis.
But Giudice will continue to appeal his deportation order for as long as possible.
“He will be OK,” said Jerard Gonzalez, one of Joe’s immigration attorneys. “I just don’t like having families taken apart like this.”
Giudice had previously been denied his original request to be released to the New Jersey home he shares with wife Teresa Giudice and their four daughters:
Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10.
As most Real Housewives of New Jersey fans are likely aware, Joe was sentenced to 41 months in jail for his role in a bankruptcy scheme.
Joe and his estranged wife admitted in 2016 to lying to the government about their income and their assets, defrauding the government in the process.
A federal judge decreed awhile back that Joe, who never became a United States citizen, must be deported back to Italy because he’s an immigrant who committed a serious crime.
After being released from prison, Giudice was taken into custody by immigration officials and was only just now set free — but only if he lives in Italy while his appeals case is heard.
The next court date regarding Joe’s appeal is in November.
Teresa, for her part, has not yet commented on Joe having to move to Italy while his legal argument goes through the system.
She has said on numerous occasions that she will leave her husband regardless of the outcome; she seems so very over this relationship.
Last week, when asked how the family has come together and supported each other, she told E! News:
“We just do. I mean, we’ve come a long way and I’m happy I have four beautiful daughters.
“They’re strong and I’m happy to have them. I’m their rock, they’re my rock and I’m glad we have each other.”
Teresa also wrote a letter to the judge several months ago, pleading to have Joe remain in America.
“I cannot bear the thought of my daughters losing their father, I am fearful that it will break them and that I alone will not be able to fix them,” the 47-year-old wrote.
She added at the time:
“Judge Ellington, this is my greatest fear and it keeps me up at night. The fear that if I lose my husband, I will also lose my children, as they will never ever be the same.”
But, as you can see below, it also looks like Bravo is pretty darn excited to milk this scandal for all it’s worth:
Billionaire Genius Elon Musk Paid $50,000 to a Convicted Fraudster Claiming to be a Private Investigator
Elon Musk has a reputation as a genius inventor, which is funny because I don’t think he’s invented anything and I’m pretty sure he’s an idiot. I mean, for a smart person, he does a LOT of stupid stuff. Like the time he accidentally committed securities fraud on Twitter because he was mad people were shorting Tesla stock. Or his plan to nuke Mars. But his true oeuvre in the stupid arts was the time he claimed a guy was a pedophile because he didn’t like Elon’s useless metal tube.
He was apparently quite set on proving that this guy was a pedophile based on the fact that he was white and yet chose to live in Asia. And he was so mad that he insulted his sub that he paid a private eye over fifty thousand dollars to investigate him.
Except the guy wasn’t a private eye, he was a convicted fraudster who had cold e-mailed Musk offering to investigate the diver Musk was fighting with. You know, basically a more detailed version of the Nigerian Prince thing.
Recently released court documents from a defamation case in US federal court show that Musk retained Howard-Higgins after the self-proclaimed investigator cold-emailed him offering to “dig deep” into Vernon Unsworth, a British expat who played a key role in the rescue of a boys soccer team from a Thailand cave system in July 2018. Unsworth, who had criticized Musk’s efforts to involve himself in the cave rescue, is now suing the billionaire for publicly calling him a pedophile and “child rapist,” an allegation partly based on unsubstantiated information given to him by Howard-Higgins.
How incredible is it that Musk not only sent a guy $50,000 based on a random e-mail, but he also took the ‘information’ the guy gave him and got himself sued. It’s almost too perfect for words.
And the really funny thing is that Unsworth may have a case. Law blog Popehat laid out the facts as writer Ken White saw that, which are that calling someone a pedophile is not defamatory because it’s an insult and an opinion. But he went on say that Musk’s e-mail to Buzzfeed claiming Unsworth had a 12-year-old child bride was a statement of fact and that can be defamatory. And we now know Musk heard that (by all appearances false) information from his internet PI.
I feel like one of these days we’re going to open Twitter and find out Elon Musk died and his last words were “Of course it’ll work, I’m a genius.”

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way fans have a lot of opinions about the possibilty of Evelin Villegas and Corey Rathgeber getting back together.
It turns out that they may not have to worry about that -- but about someone else snatching him up.
Corey was spotted with Larissa Lima, who openly expressed interest. And now Evelin is trying to warn her away.
Late Wednesday night, Larissa Lima shared a selfie after she ran into Corey Rathgeber.
Though both 90 Day Fiance stars, the two were on different seasons and have very different reputations.
But, surely they both just happened to be in Vegas at the same time, right?
After all, Corey has shared other photos, particularly snaps of him with beloved 90 Day Fiance stars David and Annie.
But, as you'll soon see, this simple selfie may be much more significant.
So, on Thursday, Evelin went off in her Instagram Stories, addressing both fan complaints about her and her thoughts on Corey himself.
"All [Corey] give me lately is disappointment," Evelin writes.
She continues, saying that he is "clearly in a ridiculous desperate need for fame and recognition."
Evelin points out: "There's only one more minute of your 'fame.'"
She concludes that post by admonishing him: "Stop being a loser."
One fan commented on the selfie of Larissa and Corey that the pair make a cute couple, and Larissa wrote: "I agree."
This clearly set off Evelin.
"I love you Larissa," she begins. "But Corey is way too boring and needy for anybody."
"And he doesn't have money," Evelin warns, clearly thinking of Larissa's reputation as a gold digger.
She then suggests that much about Corey "is all an illusion."
So, a quick recap: Corey and Evelin broke up after Corey saw a video of Evelin cheating.
Producers prepared him, had him sign a mental health waiver, and showed him a video that upset him a great deal.
According to a leaker, he broke down crying and then spoke to a therapist that TLC had waiting for him backstage.
Days later, he blocked Evelin on Instagram, much to her frustration.
Recently, he unblocked her and the two refollowed each other. Now, days later, it appears that they didn't go much further than that in patching things up.
Meanwhile, Larissa broke up with her ex, Eric Nichols, less than a month ago.
Yes, Larissa said she's so tired of men taking advantage of her. But it's been a few weeks since then.
Some people really, truly do not like to be single, and there's more to that than just general horniness.
It's possible that Larissa is one such person. It took about this much time after her scary, violent breakup with Colt for her to join Tinder.
We don't know that she or Corey are each other's types, but ... you never know. And Larissa sounds interested.
Obviously, some viewers have taken an intense, even excessive dislike to Evelin Villegas.
One should remember that these shows are heavily edited. Editing won't put words in your mouth, but they can show only the negative if they want.
Also, some of the things said to and about Evelin were hateful, ignorant, and even racist.
Some, particularly certain older female fans who would just love to get their hands on Corey for themselves, want him to stay broken up with Evelin.
Everybody's entitled to their opinions, but ... how do these fans feel about Corey maybe hooking up with Larissa?
Is that what they wanted, or do they feel like it's an out-of-the-frying-pan, into-the-fire situation?

Thirty-three-year-old Nicole Williams stars on the reality television series WAGs LA (WAGs stands for “Wives and Girlfriends”) which follows the significant others of sports stars. While Nicole might have made a name for herself by sleeping with Larry English, she’s now a star in her own right and has just under 2 million Instagram followers treated to pics of Williams’ truly smoking hot bod and Kardashian-worthy mug. (And is she oddly giving anyone else Hailey Baldwin vibes?)

So we’re happy to see that the paps caught up with Williams on the beach as she sauntered around in a very tight bathing suit. We can see that her entire body is in tip-top shape, but the real showstopper is that plump round angel of an azz. You can tell that Nicole didn’t need a medical professional’s assistance in creating this divine dumper. It’s the product of great genes and plenty of work at the gym. And maybe, just maybe, a little help from Glob almighty. He would be that bitch. Anyway enjoy…

I’ve always had a thing for girls with more meat on their bones and Iskra Lawrence is one of the most gorgeous women that doesn’t fit the waifish standards of the fashion industry. She was in Paris earlier this week and stepped out in a dress whose color can only be accurately described as highlighter yellow. Seriously, she looks like one of my college textbooks.
Iskra Lawrence is so well aware of her size and compliments it with gorgeous outfits like this one. There’s even a nice picture of her feet in there for QT and all you other foot men out there. There really is something for everyone here, except ignorant assholes who are gonna show up to try and body shame her as if she reads this site, let alone its comments section.
If you want to extoll the virtues of Iskra Lawrence, we welcome you to sound off on this all-time beauty in the comments section below. If you’ve got nothing positive to contribute, however, keep going. There’s no rule that says you have to read every article on the site, so just leave this one for people who enjoy Iskra Lawrence. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

It seems that after directing Disney’s live-action Aladdin, Guy Ritchie needed to get back to his roots and make a down and dirty gangster flick again in the form of The Gentlemen. An all-star cast is on hand to deliver that signature Guy Ritchie dialogue and many of them have even adopted funny voices for the movie.
You’ve got Hugh Grant doing a world class Michael Caine impression, Colin Farrell doing god knows what, and in a real stretch of his acting abilities, Matthew McConaughey playing a weed kingpin. Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery is here as well, along with Eddie Marsan, Henry Golding, Jeremy Strong, and Charlie Hunnam’s also on hand, with glasses no less, trying to convince us he can play learned doctors too.
This is the sort of movie Ritchie used to be able to make in his sleep—and he did, in fact, make Revolver in his sleep. I dare you to tell me what that movie’s about—and with a decent cast and some crackerjack dialogue and set pieces, this has the potential to rise above the norm. Has Guy Ritchie turned a corner and become a halfway decent filmmaker again? We’ll find out when The Gentlemen opens January 24.
