John Travolta finally comes forward regarding the latest allegations. I’m sure you are wondering which one now right? It’s the allegations that he sexually harassed a former Royal Caribbean worker.
Similar to all the other complaints that have been filed against the 58 year old actor his lawyer – who is probably getting rich again, because I’m sure he’s already rich – released a statement similar to all the others – but this time with a little more meat to it.
WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!!
Before we get into the statement from Travolta’s lawyer, how about a recap of the alleged events?
Fabian Zanzi says in the details of the lawsuit, that in June of 2009, Travolta ordered “Room Service”. When Zanzi delivered the food to Travolta’s room, he was asked by Travolta for a next massage. Then Travolta dropped his robe and forcefully embraced him saying,
“Take me, I will take care of you, please,”
After Zanzi rejected the offer, he says that Travolta offered him $12,000 for hush money to keep things quiet. He also said that the management of the cruise shipped banned him, forcing him to keep the entire incident quite.
NOW THE STATEMENT FOR TRAVOLTA’S LAWYER.
Martin Singer, says that the accusation is,
“another ludicrous lawsuit with inane claims” from someone who’s “looking for their 15 minutes of fame.”
“The claims are completely contradicted by what Mr. Zanzi told his employer back in 2009 when he was being disciplined for his own violations of company policy, In his handwritten report three years ago, the only physical contact he claimed occurred was allegedly touching my client’s neck.”
“The inappropriate conduct he alleges in his lawsuit is absent from his written report he submitted at the time. That glaring omission speaks volumes. Also calling his credibility into question is his dubious allegation that his employer supposedly restrained him in a room on the cruise ship for five days, yet after that supposedly occurred, Mr. Zanzi continued to work for Royal Caribbean for years, on multiple ships.”
“Now, after waiting three years, and after getting paid to tell his story to the media, Mr. Zanzi has filed this absurd lawsuit, We are confident that my client will prevail on the merits and that he will be completely vindicated in court.”
Well I’m convinced. I’m convinced that Zanai is a whack job. No not that kind of whack job, but a loon. He might not be, but when you have a million dollar lawyer, putting together buttoned up statements like this, the deck is stacked. If Travolta is declared innocent he should go after each and everyone of his accusers. If these guys were severely fined, that would send a message to all who try and generate these phony claims in the future.Read more...
As usual my email gets blown up when anything that has to do with the Atlanta Housewives jumps off, and this was no exception.
Word on the Street was that Keshia Knight Pulliam was going to be joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Who? Rudy Huxstable – That’ s who.
It made sense. Remember that scene where she ran into Nene? I thought it was strange but now that actually fits perfectly. After sifting through emails I go right to the most reliable source for everything Atlanta, the website Straight From the A! and there it was. They said that Keshia is actually taping the show now.
After reading through their post, there are a lot of past denials by Pulliam mentioned so I figured it best to check her twitter. Voila! A fresh tweet today. Apparently she reads Straight From the A! as well and she adamantly denied any association with the RHOA. Kesia Knight Pulliam tweeted from @peachespulliam,
I am NOT joining the cast of RHOA this season…next season or any season. I honestly don’t know where this rumor is coming from!! Pls RT.
What’s the real deal?
We actually won’t know until the cast photo is revealed which will be soon. If she is filming the show as many reports are that they saw her actually taping with the cast her credibility will be temporarily shot, but very temporary. Once the drama starts no one will care. Right now the cast for the new season is set to be:
Nene Leakes, Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Pulliam and Kim Zolciak with a questionable Keshia K Pulliam.
WHO THE HECK IS KENYA MOORE??
She is rumored to be the official replacement for Sheree. She is a former Miss USA who doesn’t actually live in Atlanta but is looking to buy a house there. She is also a model and rumor has it that her and Cynthia get into it pretty hot and heavy regarding some of the models that Cynthia selected for a her agency. Known for her curves, attitude and style, Moore will bring “Moore” drama to Atlanta for sure.
For more info on Kenya Moore, peep the post on her joining the cast on Straight from the A!.
Rudy Huxtable or No Rudy Huxtable, Bring we can’t wait for the New Season!!Read more...
Simon Cowell Cleans House!! Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul follow Steven Jones – All 3 Will Not Be Returning for the X-Factor
Wow! Before I could even get the details of Steven Jones exit, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul were right behind him. WOW!!
Simon Cowell is a beast!! There are reports that Simon wanted to take the show in a different direction, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!
WHOS CONFIRMED AND WHO’S NOT?
Steven Jones exit is confirmed because he tweeted it,
“I wont be hosting next seasons XFactor which is a shame but I cant complain as I’ve had a great time.”
He is definitely a wrap. I thought he was decent at best – but not good enough to take the show where it needs to go.
Scherzinger’s dismissal was confirmed by a FOX rep. They confirmed that her contract was not renewed. No comments were made by Fox on Paula’s status.
Nigel Lythgoe who is the executive producer of idol tweeted,
“Shocked to see Simon has fired Paula Abdul, Nicole and Steve from the X-Factor.”
That leads credibility to all the rumors.
L.A. Reid is still holding on. There have been no comments about his status one way or the other, but things look good for him.
SIMON THE GREAT
This is what makes Simon great in my opinion. He has the courage to take his own advice, throw caution to the wind and make drastic changes, (even though rumor has it, that Nicole’s exit was her decision, “so she can focus on her music”).
Simon was disappointed with the shows overall performance. Despite solid ratings, he will not be happy until X-Factor is bigger then American Idol. Period. Now with “The voice” being a surprise hit, the bar is set even higher.
Steve Jones, weather he liked it or not was being compared to Ryan Seacrest every night it was on, which was unfair, but so is life. Seacrest has been doing “Idol” since 2002, comparatively Jones looked uncomfortable at best. The show itself was simply overproduced and the judges were more worried about themselves and their careers then the talent. The show was exhausting to watch…..
With Seacrest leaving “Idol” and the show just not being the same, there leaves room for a new champ and Simon Cowell sees the opportunity to claim the throne. He’s not one to let opportunity pass him by. Rumors are flying on who will be the replacement judges, Mariah Carey? Mary J. Blige?
Simon has definitely created buzz again around his show. I might actually make it through a complete season this time around.
