Rape Golem Harvey Weinstein Is Appealing His Rape Conviction Because He Thinks the Media Was Too Hard on Him For All the Rapes
Harvey Weinstein spent decades strutting around as the tiny, deformed dick you had to suck if you wanted to be a movie star. As one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers, all he really had to do to stay on top forever was not rape a bunch of women.
Harvey was convicted of multiple rapes last year, and now he’s appealing because he says he didn’t have a fair trial.
ABC 7 in New York reports Weinstein claims media bias and faulty juror selection process, among other complaints, left him unable to receive a fair trial.
Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein appealed his rape conviction Monday, arguing he was made a “media villain” and tried in a “highly volatile and prejudicial atmosphere” that failed to safeguard his right to a fair trial by an impartial jury.
“Although the defense raised legitimate questions about whether Juror No. 11 was fit to serve, the trial court failed to discharge its constitutional obligation to conduct a full inquiry to ensure that the juror was capable of rendering a fair and impartial verdict,” the defense wrote.
Look, I think Woody Allen has been unfairly vilified in the press over unsubstantiated allegations. Harvey Weinstein has been accused of rape by so many women that they could field a team for every major professional sport simultaneously and still have some women on the bench.
I don’t think Harvey is going to be able to jump the General Lee over a canyon and Duke Boys his way out of this one. I expect all sorts of further appeals, but I don’t expect any of them to be successful.
I just think it’s funny that after decades of basically running Hollywood, Weinstein says the media was out to get him.
Kristen Stewart was basically a pariah a few years ago. She was the gloomy actress who slept with a married director (and cheated on Robert Pattinson) and a lot of Ovid fans wanted nothing to do with her. One short haircut and an interview where she confirms she likes vaginas as much as the rest of us later, she’s basically Hollywood’s new it girl.
This is very much not a typical Hollywood coming-out story, even today. Contrary to what you might imagine, being LGBT is not a ticket to success in Hollywood and homophobia is still an issue in Tinseltown.
Despite Hollywood’s gay-friendly image to the public, Kate Winslet says that being gay can severely limit your career prospects as an actor.
Page Six reports Winslet says she knows at least four people who are in the closet and afraid that coming out would cost them acting roles. In 2021.
“I can think of at least four actors absolutely hiding their sexuality,” the actress, 45, told the Sunday Times. “It’s painful. Because they fear being found out. And that’s what they say. ‘I don’t want to be found out.’”
Winslet explained that the discrimination often begins as soon as actors and actresses launch their careers.
“I cannot tell you the number of young actors I know — some well-known, some starting out — who are terrified their sexuality will be revealed and that it will stand in the way of their being cast in straight roles,” she said, calling the notion “f–ked up.”
Gay actors Neil Patrick Harris and Jim Parsons both had a lot of success playing straight characters, but neither came out until after the shows they were on started airing. And still Hollywood is nervous that gay actors can’t “play straight,” even though 20-30-somethings routinely play teenagers.
“It’s bad news. Hollywood has to drop that dated crap of, ‘Can he play straight because, apparently, he’s gay?’” she told the newspaper, noting that the stigma applies to “men more than anything.”
“That should be almost illegal. You would not believe how widespread it is. And it can’t just be distilled to the question about gay actors playing gay parts. Because actors, in some cases, are choosing not to come out for personal reasons. And it’s nobody’s business. Perhaps privacy. Perhaps conditioning and shame.”
Here’s a fun game: name a living, male openly bisexual actor. Did you say Alan Cumming? If you said anyone I’ll bet you said Alan Cumming.
We like to think of Hollywood and brands and big cities as being liberal utopias where the LGBT community is welcomed with open arms because of a deep sense of moral righteousness. It’s actually all a calculated business decision.
There’s an episode of 30 Rock where Jack tells Liz “We’ll trick those race-car-loving wide loads into watching your lefty, homoerotic propaganda hour yet.” That is the purest distillation of how Hollywood and big business writ large think about these issues. It’s all a calculation about how to make the most money.

iPad Pro 2021 กลายเป็นประเด็นให้พูดถึงอีกครั้ง หลังจากที่ก่อนหน้านี้ จอน พรอสเซอร์ (Jon Prosser) กูรูคนดังด้านผลิตภัณฑ์ Apple ออกมาเปิดเผยว่า Apple จะจัดงานเปิดตัวผลิตภัณฑ์ใหม่ในวันที่ 23 มีนาคมนี้
ซึ่งหลายฝ่ายก็คาดกันว่าจะเป็น iPad Pro รุ่นใหม่ประจำปีนี้นั่นเอง แต่จนถึงตอนนี้ก็ยังไร้วี่แววของงานเปิดตัวดังกล่าว แถมล่าสุด นักข่าวช่องดังยังได้ออกมายืนยันว่า Apple จะมีมีงานเปิดตัวอะไรในเดือนมีนาคมนี้ แต่จะเปิดตัวในเดือนเมษายนนี้แทน
iPad Pro 2021 จะใช้พอร์ต Thunderbolt แทน USB-C
ตามการเปิดเผยของ มาร์ก เกอร์แมน (Mark Gurman) นักข่าวสายไอทีของสำนักข่าว Bloomberg ได้ออกมายืนยันว่า Apple จะไม่มีการจัดงานเปิดตัวiPad Pro 2021 หรือสินค้าใหม่อะไรทั้งนั้นในเดือนมีนาคมนี้
หลังจากที่ก่อนหน้านี้ จอน พรอสเซอร์ (Jon Prosser) กูรูคนดังด้านผลิตภัณฑ์ Apple ออกมาเปิดเผยว่า Apple จะจัดงานเปิดตัวผลิตภัณฑ์ใหม่ในวันที่ 23 มีนาคมนี้
โดย เกอร์แมน ระยุว่า Apple จะเปิดตัวiPad Pro 2021ในเดือนเมษายนนี้ ซึ่งยังไม่มีรายละเอียดวันงานที่ชัดเจน ส่วนiPad 9 และ iPad mini ก็จะมีงานเปิดตัวด้วยเช่นเดียวกัน แต่อาจจะไม่ได้เปิดตัวในงานเดียวกับiPad Proรุ่นใหม่
นอกจากนี้ Bloomberg ยังระบุว่าiPad Pro 2021 จะได้รับการอัปเกรดไปใช้พอร์ต Thunderbolt แทนที่พอร์ต USB-C ธรรมดา ซึ่งใช้กับiPad Pro รุ่นปัจจุบัน ถึงแม้ว่าในแง่ของการใช้งานนั้น
พอร์ต USB-C จะมีประสิทธิภาพต่ำกว่าพอร์ต Thunderbolt ซึ่งสามารถเชื่อมต่อหน้าจอได้หลายหน้าจอ รวมถึงรองรับอุปกรณ์เสริมอื่น ๆ ได้ในเวลาเดียวกัน แต่ถึงอย่างนั้นพอร์ตทั้งสองแบบจะมีการดีไซน์ที่คล้ายกัน ทำให้ผู้ใช้งานไม่จำเป็นต้องใช้ที่ชาร์จแบบใหม่
ยิ่งไปกว่านั้น Apple ยังอัปเกรดชิปประมวลและกล้องของiPad Pro 2021 อีกด้วย ซึ่งคาดว่าจะใช้ชิป Apple A14X Bionic รุ่นล่าสุด รวมถึงกล้องแบบ 3 เลนส์ ได้แก่ เลนส์หลัก, เลนส์ Ultra Wide และ LiDAR sensor ส่วนiPad รุ่นอื่น ๆ ที่จะเปิดตัวในเวลาไล่เลี่ยกันอย่างiPad 9 จะมีหน้าจอขนาด 10.2 นิ้ว
เหมือนกับ iPad 8 แต่ตัวเครืองจะมีขนาดบางลง ส่วน iPad mini จะมาพร้อมขนาดหน้าจอที่ใหญ่ขึ้นโดยที่ตัวเครื่องเท่าเดิม รวมถึงฝัง Touch ID ไว้ที่ปุ่มเปิด/ปิดเครื่องแทน หน้าจอใหญ่ขนาดนี้เหมาะเป็นอย่างมากที่จะเล่น 356bet เว็บเดิมพันที่มีเงินรางวัลมากมายให้คุณ
Mackenzie Edwards has recorded a new video in which she responds in detail to recently being let go from Teen Mom OG.
We'll recap her take on the scandalous situation below, but it boils down to this:
Whatever is meant to be, you guys, is meant to be!
As you likely know by now, the axe came down several days ago on Mackenzie, her husband, Ryan, and his parents, Jen and Larry.
The family members were fired by MTV after full-time cast member Maci Bookout reportedly went to producers and demanded their ousting.
The power move was a culmination of a season-long feud in which Maci, her ex and his loved ones argued over how infrequently Ryan was allowed to see his 12-year oldd son, Bentley.
Has Maci really been keeping the child away out of spite... or does Bentley himself not want to spend time with his troubled dad?
That's been the topic of debate for weeks on air -- but Maci allegedly went ahead and settled it last week. In her favor.
“Ryan and Mackenzie, as well as Jen and Larry, were all on a call with production on Tuesday," a source told The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
According to The Ashley, one of the industry's most reliable celebrity gossip websites, the call was "informing them they won’t be on the show anymore going forward."
“The Edwards were informed that Maci’s reps wanted to go a different direction and showcase all of her abilities."
Maci hasn't really denied this report, and Mackenzie has taken it a step further, claiming Bookout went all the way to Viacom executives to get her canned.
But she now swears she's cool with it.
"We are not doing ‘Teen Mom’ at this point in time,” Mackenzie says in a new YouTube video.
“Before all this happened, I was just kind of praying, ‘God, whatever you have in store for us, let us follow that.’
"Because I’m a believer, Ryan’s a believer and we both believe if we follow our hearts and follow God’s plan then He is going to open up doors for us that have never been opened before."
As fate would have it, Mackenzie went on to say she and Ryan were close to walking away from the franchise anyway.
“We had been having this conversation for a long time but it’s hard to pull the trigger on something like that,” she said.
“So, we got the phone call saying we’re not going to be doing Teen Mom anymore, and we both kind of felt this peace.”
That sure is fortunate for them, huh?!?
Mackenzie admitted in this footage that the MTV paycheck has been her family's "primary source of income," but she's looking to the future.
"I have been putting together a fitness plan since I started my fitness journey close to a year ago,” she explained.
“I had decided I was going to curate a plan with trainers. I got a team together. So we are finally making that dream a reality and we are so excited.
"It’s a 12-week challenge…it is so streamlined. It focuses on your food and your exercise and really just kind of getting healthy from the inside out.”
For his part, Ryan has shrugged off the firing and told The Sun that he's focused on his new "fabrication shop."
We'll give the final word for now to Mackenzie:
“I feel like fitness really gave me an outlet during COVID and a lot of things you didn’t see on Teen Mom.
"They were not documented and I kind of went through a pretty dark time and fitness kind of gave me an outlet.
"I’m hoping that if you resonate with that, and you can give me 30 minutes of your day, you can be successful as well on your fitness journey.”
During her catastrophic downward spiral, Mama June Shannon did more than just nearly end her life.
The multiple betrayals of trust nearly destroyed her entire family.
Now sober, she's about to be reunited with her daughters on Mama June: Road to Redemption.
But is she ready to hear what her daughters have to say to her?
WEtv released a sneak peek of this grueling Mama June: Road to Redemption reunion.
"You don't know how many nights I cry myself to sleep," Alana confesses.
She is openly tearful as she speaks to her mother in this painful heart-to-heart.
This isn't run-of-the-mill teen angst, either, even though Alana is 15.
She explains to her mom that she weeps "just hoping and praying that you don't overdose."
There were many times in 2019 and even very early 2020 when we all shared that fear.
No one, of course, felt that more acutely than her teenage daughter.
This very visibly hits June hard.
During her extended drug binge, she clearly did not appreciate how her actions hurt her family.
That is part of what makes this moment so important -- driving home that fact.
This is where Lauryn speaks up after having cared for Alana for a couple of years because June was unfit to do so.
"I can't give Alana her mom," Lauryn says matter-of-factly.
Some of us might be distracted by Lauryn's off-brand Velma look.
(It's a genuinely good look -- no shade)
But her words are starting to hit home with June. At least, we hope so.
Lauryn continues to express the ways in which June's behavior impacted her.
"It's like ... I'm drowning," she expresses.
She was overwhelmed by the burden of her mother's actions and the new responsibilities placed upon her.
Lauryn is not the only one who is visibly overwhelmed.
Alana, whose tender teen age and hormones make this so much harder, begins to openly sob.
This has been and remains a difficult and traumatic ordeal for her.
But not all of the teaser is about this reunion itself.
Other parts continue to show Lauryn and Alana's daily life.
This includes a moment when Lauryn and Josh discuss Alana.
Josh Efird suggests taking Alana to see Sugar Bear.
Whether or not this is being played up for the camera is up to your interpretation.
But our interpretation is that, like everything about Alana's dad, this wouldn't have taken place without the cameras.
Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson was and is a terrible parent and a rotten human being.
There aren't really any good reasons for Alana to visit him.
As such, Lauryn's reaction in this moment is all of us.
We don't see anything further from this scene.
Instead we see June at her (new) home that she shared with her boyfriend.
"This could be a disaster," she warns Geno Doak.
The context for that is anyone's guess, truly.
Up next, we see June reappear in an unexpected place.
Specifically, seated behind Lauryn.
Lauryn turns around and asks her mother "what the f--k."
Is she merely startled by June's sudden appearance.
Or is there more to what's going on in this exchange than is shown in this all-too-short teaser?
Ultimately, there is very little context in this teaser.
But that is the job of this kind of short trailer -- a few lines of dialogue to give you something to look forward to.
Mama June: Road to Redemption continues to air on Friday nights on WEtv.
Dua Lipa is back on another tropical vacation which she somehow manages to fit into her extremely busy schedule.
The singer recently won Best Pop Vocal for her new album Future Nostalgia which she was unable to go on tour for this year, along with many others. Instead Dua did a whole virtual concert called Studio 2054 where she gave her fans an epic performance.
The singer took a little break with some friends on a beach getting an early start to Hot Girl Summer by spending the entire vacation in bikinis!

Addison Rae is the biggest star to come out of the TikTok hype so far and has made her way into the homes of America’s leading family, The Kardashians. It’s safe to assume that Kris Jenner has latched onto the star and made herself her manager, like she did with Cardi B, which explains Addison’s new and very sudden music career.
Charli XCX is an actual singer and is paying homage to the TikTok star over not he platform by doing a “duet” with her new dance video. Charli goes all out and styles her hair just like Addison for the video, wearing a similar pair of green sweatpants and an oversized sweater. The best part is, the song used in the video has gone totally viral and is actually Charli XCX’s track!
See more Charli and her TikTok antics, like pushing Tove Lo into the pool, below!

As we all know, Sex and The City is coming back for a third movie instalment that had been cancelled more times that we even know. Sex and The City 3 is officially returning and Sarah Jessica Parker even confirmed the news on her IG a few months ago.
The iconic character of Samantha, played by Kim Cattrall will not be returning for this film which sucks for a lot of the fans. That was until Heidi Klum announced on April 1st that she would be joining the cast to play the role of Samantha.
In the end, this turned out to be Heidi’s April Fools joke which she revealed with this video, having the words written across her forehead. A let down, but it was fun while it lasted!

As you've probably heard by now, Jed Duggar and Katey Nakatsu got married over the weekend.
The ceremony was a little different from the usual Duggar wedding in a number of significant ways.
For one thing, several guests attended virtually due to Covid protocols.
But the biggest difference between Jed and Katey's ceremony and the many Duggar weddings that came before it was the fact that for some reason, Jed and Katey decided to keep theirs a secret.
Now, don't get us wrong -- there's always a degree of secrecy in the planning of a Duggar wedding.
For example, the date and venue are often kept under wraps in order to prevent gate-crashing from obsessive fans.
But Jed and Katey took the whole privacy thing to a bizarre extreme.
Fans were expecting the wedding, but only because they'd pieced together the facts from leaked video and tabloid reports.
Jed and Katey never even announced their courtship to the public, much less their engagement.
In fact, prior to the wedding announcement that Jed posted on Saturday, these two had never publicly acknowledged one another in any way!
"For a long time, I have prayed for my future spouse, not knowing who that person would be," Jed wrote in the caption to the pic he shared over the weekend.
"God answered my prayers far beyond what I could have ever imagined in Katey! We have enjoyed quietly developing our relationship over the past year, and every moment together has been amazing!" he continued.
"I'm so grateful God brought Katey into my life and excited to share with you all that today she became my wife!"
In a statement on their own Instagram page, Jed's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, echoed his excitement.
"We are overjoyed about adding another daughter-in-love to our family!!" they wrote, adding:
"Jed and Katey have enjoyed a quiet, low-key relationship that has allowed them to prepare for a beautiful life together."
While some Duggar obsessives had figured out the wedding date through online sleuthing, others were completely caught off guard by the whole situation.
"Um, excuse me?! when the heck did this happen?!" one person wrote.
"Woah, when did this happen?! I didn't even know they were courting!" another added.
"OMG!!! How exciting. I had no idea you were even courting someone. big congrats," a third chimed in.
Others praised the couple for their astonishing ability to keep the whole thing relatively private.
"I am absolutely in love with the idea that you did this all private," one person commented.
"So happy for you guys and the way that you were able to keep this journey as a couple private," another added.
Of course, there was a third group who found the whole Jed and Katey situation highly suspicious, and they were more than happy to say so.
"Why didn't your vows say how much you loved her?" one person questioned, adding the hashtag, "#arrangedmarriage."
Yes, it seems the most popular theory on Instagram is that Jim Bob and Katey's father, Kory Nakatsu, arranged the marriage with minimal input from the young folk, thus eliminating the need for a lengthy courtship.
"Because this one was arranged," one person wrote when a different fan asked about the need for such secrecy.
"Can you say arranged?! Seriously!?" another asked.
Of course, that wasn't the only theory as to why this all happened so quickly.
"So wonder when the baby will be born. Probably a couple months 'early' is my guess," one person offered.
"Happy for them but they will have a pregnancy announcement soon," another chimed in.
There are other theories, as well, with some saying that Jim Bob objected to the match because Katey's parents are divorced and others claiming that Jed's political career is somehow involved.
Frankly, we may never know the whole truth.
But that won't stop us from offering out congrats to the happy couple!
