Girls Gone Wild’s Joe Francis Defended Himself In Court Case… And Won!

Published

on

They often say anyone who attempts to defend himself in a court of law has a fool for a client. This rule can not be applied to Girls Gone Wild‘s Joe Francis. The franchise goes like this: guys with video cameras go to spring break and convince drunk girls to take their clothes off on camera. Then he compiles it into a DVD, sells it, and makes millions.

Not surprisingly, lots of girls wake up a lot less drunk and a lot more embarassed. The whole lawsuit involved four plaintiffs that alleged that their exploitation in the videos resulted in depression, drug abuse, suicide attempts, strained relationships and overall misery.

Refusing to offer up a multi million dollar settlement, Francis represented himself in the eight day trial. And, as you can see from the headline, he WON.

He’s since released a statement:

 “I am relieved that I have finally been vindicated from these slanderous, disgusting, and now proven false allegations in a federal court by a jury of eight respectful, conservative women. My legal team did an outstanding job and Girls Gone Wild will continue to take strident measures to avoid facing these false allegations ever again. On behalf of myself and my corporations I would like to thank the jurors and the people of Panama City for their continued support.”

There’s little denying that Francis is a pretty narsty – and his chosen profession isn’t exactly noble.  And while I understand that sometimes people do stupid things under the influence of alcohol…  blaming someone else for your own choices (lifting up your top or more) is ridiculous. Suing someone else when your decisions have consequences is dangerous ground. We live in a new age where pictures and video last forever online. (I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m sure as hell glad it wasn’t that way when I was growing up.) So all of us have to think that much harder about the choices we make.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

Ya like my hair ?

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
