    Mario Batali on Tuesday was cleared of charges that he groped a woman at a Boston bar — an important victory for the celebrity chef who fell from grace after multiple allegations of sexual impropriety surfaced. Boston Municipal Court Judge James Stanton found the chef — who had waived his right to a trial by jury — not guilty of indecent battery and assault after a criminal trial that lasted less than two days. Tene, 32 testified on Monday that Batali, 61, non-consensually kissed her, rubbed her breasts, grabbed her behind and put his hands between her legs while taking...

  • Is Amber Heard This Year’s Jussie Smollett?

    Cast your minds back to 2019, just before COVID brought the world to a screeching halt. The world was a better place then, wasn’t it? For some, sure. For the actor Jussie Smollett, not so much. On January 29, 2019, as you may recall, Smollett told police officers that he was attacked outside his apartment by two men in ski masks. The perpetrators of this supposed hate crime racially abused Smollett. Clearly not familiar with the fact that they were in Chicago, very much a blue city, the men reminded Smollett that "this is MAGA country.” The criminals then proceeded...

    Pablo Picasso's track-record with women certainly would not make him a feminist pin-up today.There were two wives, at least six mistresses and countless lovers -- with a tendency to abandon women when they became ill, a voracious appetite for prostitutes, and some eye-popping age differences (his second wife was 27 when he married her at 79). Some of the quotes attributed to him would probably cause Twitter's servers to combust if he said them now ("For me there are only two kinds of women: goddesses and doormats").

    The 88-year-old, in a recent interview, asked a New York Times reporter, seemingly insinuating that today's culture prefers more gender-neutral terms. “What’s wrong with mother? What’s wrong with woman? Girl? I don’t like having that word taken away.” SNIP “Sadly, I think that now young men are suffering from being labeled toxically masculine,” she explained, “because of this rise of anti-maleness.” The actress was also candid about allegedly being sexually assaulted by powerful Hollywood executives in the past — all things that “happened to girls all the time” in those days.

    Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer is suing the owner of Deadspin, alleging the website defamed him as he faced accusations of sexual assault. Bauer announced the lawsuit on Twitter Thursday night and shared the court filing. In the 25-page complaint, Bauer's attorneys say a July 6 article about the sexual assault allegations falsely accuse him of fracturing the woman's skull -- part of what the lawsuit contends is part of a years-long "unrelenting attack" on the pitcher by Deadspin "with the purpose of humiliating him and ruining his baseball career." Last June, a San Diego woman told police that...

Tickets for Louis C.K. show purchased earlier remain valid for new dates and do not require an exchange.” Reps for Louis CK,...

After the law firm's findings go public, Microsoft is set to release a report detailing its sexual harassment investigations and...

    When last we heard about Tariq Ramadan, at one time the most famous Muslim “public intellectual” in the Western world, he had fallen from grace. The curtain was pulled back and as one woman after another came forward to charge him with rape, he was revealed to be not only a serial rapist, but one who enjoyed humiliating – and physically hurting – his victims. He has been allowed out of prison, and awaits trial in Paris. He may also have to face trial in Geneva, with a different set of accusers. In the wake of these charges, he was...

    Hollywood stars ripped Fox News’ Chris Wallace for his role as the moderator of the first presidential debate on Tuesday, saying that the news anchor was too timid and lost control of the proceedings as President Donald Trump took control of the stage through sheer force of will. Chris Wallace — who repeated that false Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax and erroneously referred to critical race theory as “racial sensitivity training”– had trouble maintaining even a semblance of order as President Donald Trump went on the offensive, dominating the show by aggressively interrupting and heckling Joe Biden. Celebrities seemed frustrated...

Barbra Streisand led the social media charge, implying that President Trump is taking the...

    Iranians and Iraqis are celebrating after the Pentagon, under the direction of President Trump, carried out an airstrike in Baghdad that killed Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani. The action came in response to an Iran-led attack on the US embassy in Iraq. Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard CorpsÂ’ elite Quds Force, a designated terror group since 2007, was despised by many in Iran, and by Iraqis who have been subject to a campaign of terror in their own country at the hands of forces operating in lockstep with the Iranian military.
