Last week we talked Cardi B and her beef with bartenders at strip clubs who open their legs to Cardi’s boyfriend and Baby Daddy.
It seems now that Cardi B is just this year’s Azealia Banks because at last weekend’s Harper’s Bazaar Icons party for New York Fashion Week Cardi B wanted some of Nicki Minaj.
Cardi, swathed in a red Dolce & Gabbana brawl-gown—see what I did there? Not ballgown, but brawlgown …okay I’ll stop—spotted Nicki Minaj at the event at the Plaza Hotel and made a beeline for her.
Someone ALLEGEDLY pushed Cardi “from behind” and she “went flying” and then took that fight to Minaj to :::ahem::: “address lies Nicki was spreading” though she says she didn’t intend to swing at her. She shrieked “I’ll fuck you up” and threw a “giant red shoe,” and the back of her gown was ripped, and she ended up ass out. Cardi screams “let me tell you something” and launched herself at Nicki but was stopped by security … and dragged out.
Cardi left the party with a big lump on her head, no shoes and the title of Azealia Banks 2018.
A few weeks back we reported that, following her divorce, Mel B was off to rehab for addiction to alcohol, perhaps drugs, and sex. Mel instantly took to TV to say she was going to rehab for PTSD and it had nothing to with sex and drugs and booze.
Or did it? The Los Angeles County Superior Court seems to disagree and in Mel and Stephen Belafonte’s continuing custody battle, the court had order …ordered … Mel to take random drug and alcohol testing after they found that she abuses substances:
“Based on the evidence presented, the court finds that there is a habitual, frequent and continuous use of controlled substances/alcohol by the petitioner [Mel B].”
Mel and Stephen will split the costs of the drug tests 50/50 so for the next four months. And, to add insult to drunken injury, both parents are required to be sober while their child is in either of their care; a new nanny will be present when the child is with Mel.
Mel B was accused of being an alcoholic and sex addict. She denied it all. The court said she’s probably an addict and needs to get tested regularly.
That should really mess up her PTSD.
Back in July, Ronan Farrow’s published a piece in The New Yorker about multiple women who said they had been harassed and victimized by CBS CEO Les Moonves. The women claim Moonves forced them to perform oral sex on him, that he exposed himself to them without their consent, and that he used physical violence and intimidation against them. A number of the women also say Moonves retaliated after they rebuffed him, damaging their careers.
The reaction to Farrow’s initial exposé was “less than” because Moonves is a powerful guy and because CBS’s toxic boys’ club had been covering up for him—and Charlie Rose—for years. In addition, Moonves denied everything and his wife, Julie Chen, stood by him.
Moonves and CBS quietly began working on his resignation and his Golden Parachute allowing CBS to save face and Moonves to pocket some massive coins. But then more women came forward and Farrow dropped another New Yorker exposé and now Moonves is gone but … not before he issued a statement calling all of his victims liars.
CBS actually thanked Moonves for his years of service :::gag::: and said he would not receive any “exit compensation,” at least not until an independent investigation was completed. CBS announced they would donate $20 million to “organizations that support the #MeToo movement and workplace equality for women. The donation will be deducted from any severance payments that may be due to Moonves.”
How nice …except Moonves’ severance package is said to be in the neighborhood of $120 million so after the deduction he’ll walks with $100,000,000.
Not bad for decades of sexual harassment and assault.
Denise Richards—the ex-missus Charlie Sheen—married Aaron Phypers last weekend in an intimate Malibu wedding ceremony that included only their closest family and friends … and the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and a Bravo film crew.
Denise announced her surprise engagement two days before the wedding was to take place, and a few weeks after she began filming RHoBH which also means that some, or all of the wedding, was paid for by Bravo.
Ah, love; or at least the reality show version of it.
PS Wasn’t it nice that Aaron donned his barhopping best as his wedding suit?
