In 2005, Bill Cosby testified under oath that he gave The National Enquirer an exclusive interview in exchange for the tabloid\'s promise to spike a story about a previously undisclosed sexual assault allegation from a woman named Beth Ferrier. \"I would give them an exclusive story, my words,\" Cosby said in the testimony. \"[And in return, The Enquirer] would not print the story of -- print Beth\'s story.\"\n\nCosby\'s statements, obtained by The New York Times and Associated Press, came during a deposition for a civil lawsuit filed by Andrea Constand, who claimed Cosby drugged and assaulted her.\n\nAccording to the Times, ...
Box office figures have been down this year to such an extent that even the hits are considered a disappointment. \"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1,\" which scored the year\'s biggest opening at $121.8 million, made 23 percent less during its debut weekend than last year\'s \"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.\" It\'s a figure that has caused some to question the franchise\'s future viability -- \"Can the franchise rebound?\" wrote Steven Zeitchik in a sky-is-falling piece for the Los Angeles Times -- but at least Lionsgate shareholders and Katniss Everdeen supporters can take solace in the fact that they ...

This week was full of preparations for the national eating contest -- or what some call the Thanksgiving holiday. It\'s a day filled with dodging awkward questions from relatives, throwing elbows at the dinner table and, of course, eating. Maggie Mull is excited for Thanksgiving, but for reasons other than the food: \"Thanksgiving is the only day of year when my grandma yelling \'I dropped a breast on the floor and the dogs eating it!\' isn\'t a 911 emergency.\" \n\nIn other news this week, the non-indictment of police officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown got a lot ...

Pass the tofurkey, y\'all, because these celebrity vegetarians won\'t be eating any bird for Thanksgiving. Ariana Grande, Jared Leto and Ellen DeGeneres are just a handful of the stars who reach for plant-based foods and maintain vegan or vegetarian diets. As Ellen told People in November 2013, being vegan doesn\'t make her Thanksgiving any more difficult to manage.\n\n\"It makes it easier on the turkeys, too. They get to live,\" she said. \n\nPass the cranberry sauce to these celebrity vegetarians: \n\n
LONDON (AP) — P.D. James took the classic British detective story into tough modern terrain, complete with troubled relationships and brutal violence, and never accepted that crime writing was second-class literature.\n James, who has died aged 94, is best known as the creator of sensitive Scotland Yard sleuth Adam Dalgliesh. But her wickedly acute imagination ranged widely, inserting a murder into the mannered world of Jane Austen in \"Death Comes to Pemberley\" and creating a bleak dystopian future in \"The Children of Men.\"\n ...

This year\'s \"Sexiest Man Alive\" issue features Australian hunk Chris Hemsworth of Thor and The Avengers, looking every bit the heartthrob with his ice blue eyes and bulging biceps. But long before young pups such as Bradley Cooper, Adam Levine and Channing Tatum received the honor, hunky leading men -- real men\'s men -- such as George Clooney, Sean Connery (1989) and Denzel Washington (1996) -- graced the cover. Many who ...
On Sunday last week, after a wonderful screening of Back on Board: Greg Louganis, I had an opportunity to indulge my other passion, acting! We had a wonderful backers\' reading of Spring at the Willowbrook Inn. It was great to play with the amazingly talented actors Sean McDermott, Justin Lore, and Jason Patrick Sands under the guidance and direction of Scott Wojcik. Spring at the Willowbrook Inn is a lovely play written by Jonathan Van Dyke and Douglas C. Evans. It\'s a sweet, touching love story spanning from the late 1960s, addressing the pain of the mores of the time ...

U shoyld see that mfer,\" before quickly deleting the tweet. \n\n[WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTO BELOW]\n\nA few minutes later she re-posted the photo and said she was just kidding about her comment about Cosby: \n\nGot a chemical peel to look more sexier.
