Melissa filed a lawsuit citing gross medical malpractice against Yorkville Endoscopy as well as Joan‘s personal doctor Gwen Korovin for the death of her mother. Says Melissa, “The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible. Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better.” Read on to learn more deets about Melissa‘s lawsuit and get all caught up on her push to punish the people she holds responsible for the death of Joan Rivers.

In late November, unfinished demo songs from the recording sessions for Madonna‘s upcoming new album Rebel Heart started leaking their way online then in December, more demo songs leaked … until 30+ songs were leaked in total. Today we learn that authorities in Israel have arrested a hacker suspected of breaking into Madonna‘s computer files (as well as the computer files of other musicians) for the sole purpose of stealing her music to release online. Considering the large number of songs that have been leaked, it was widely assumed that the hack was an inside job but now it appears that the song thief may have hacked into Madonna‘s computer files from other other side of the globe.

After 2 recent club shootings, prosecutors want him behind bars
LOL! In what seems like deja vu all over again, we learn today that Chris Brown‘s probation (which is his punishment for his conviction for brutally beating his ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009) has been revoked and, as such, he may end up going back to jail … again … for, like, the umpteenth time. Back in early 2013, the felon violated the terms of his probation and was threatened with jail time … which he managed to avoid until late 2013 when he was arrested for felony assault and was sentenced to incarceration in early 2014 for the crime. In the past few months, Brown has been present at 2 different clubs where gunshots were fired … so, for the public good, prosecutors want Chris Brown to go back to jail. I can’t say that I don’t agree with them. More »

The Last Supper
Yesterday morning we learned that Real Housewives of New Jersey reality TV show star Teresa Giudice turned herself in to police to begin serving her 14 month prison sentence after she was convicted on multiple felony fraud charges last October and today we get to see the last photos taken of Teresa before she went to prison. Before she turned herself in to police just before 3 AM yesterday morning, Teresa stopped at a roadside diner for a little nosh. An eagle-eyed fan spied Teresa chowing down on an egg sandwich and, naturally, decided to share the photos with the world. Have a look below and see Teresa enjoying her last supper as a free woman before she went to prison. More »

A preliminary hearing found probable cause to proceed to a trial
Two weeks ago we learned that former Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond (aka Screech) was arrested in Wisconsin after he allegedly stabbed a man in a bar fight on Xmas night. A few days later, we learned that Diamond managed to post bail and be released from police custody pending a preliminary hearing. Yesterday, Diamond was back in court to face the judge and found out that he will be forced to stand trial for the charges leveled against him. The details of the bar fight have been clarified a bit (it turns out Dustin was wielding a regular pocketknife, not a switchblade as was originally reported) and enough evidence was presented in court to warrant a trial. Dang. More »

Self Defense is his Defense
On Friday we learned the sad news that Saved By The Bell star Dustin Diamond got arrested on Xmas Day night after he allegedly pulled out a switchblade knife and stabbed a man at a bar in Wisconsin. Today we learn that Diamond made an appearance in court earlier today to plead not guilty on grounds of self defense at his arraignment, where he finally was able to post bail and be released from jail. After a crummy weekend behind bars, Screech is now a free man again. More »
You cannot be serious...
I was hoping that, as I followed this story, it wouldn’t turn out to be as bad as it sounded. I hoped t would go away entirely, which is why I haven’t written anything until not. Things have been quiet on the Halle Berry/Gabriel Aubry front for a while now. No more beefs with her new husband, Olivier Martinez, and no more custody drama. However, a little while back Berry took her babydaddy to court, because she was convinced that he was chemically straightening and lightening their daughter Nahla‘s hair behind her back. This may not seem like a huge issue to some of you, but when you’re a woman of color, the decision to relax or stay natural can be a big deal. And now, it appears that Berry was right, and a judge has ruled in her favor. Click inside for more.
"I have dedicated myself to becoming a better person"
Way back in 1988, when he wasn’t yet the Marky Mark that would enjoy fame and fortune with The Funky Bunch and beyond, Mark Wahlberg was convicted of assault and battery of a man who he attacked while attempting to steal alcohol. During the assault, Wahlberg attacked the man with a wooden stick and hurled racial slurs at the man all the while. Today we learn that Marky Mark has filed paperwork to have the conviction expunged from his record with a formal pardon. Wahlberg has famously stated, “I want people to remember my past so that I can serve as an example of how lives can be turned around and how people can be redeemed” but now that he is trying to launch a franchise of restaurants, he is hoping to have his conviction expunged for business purposes. Hmmm. More »

"I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone."
Here’s an interesting point that readers are starting to make about the Bill Cosby rape/sexual assault/predatory behavior accusations. Not one celebrity who has worked closely with Cosby over the years has come forward to defend his name. Raven-Symoné only came forward to refute rumors that he sexually assaulted her, but we haven’t seen any rallying around Cosby. I think that speaks volumes. And now we have yet another actress, Michelle Hurd, coming forward and speaking out about her experience with Cosby. She was fortunate enough to not have been attacked by him, but she says Cosby certainly tried. Click inside for more.
