Bill Cosby, who’s serving three-to-ten years for assaulting Andrea Constand, has been moved into the general population of a Pennsylvania state prison. When the 81-year-old first got there, he was in special housing so he could get acclimated to prison life. Since he’s legally blind, he still gets inmates assigned to him to help him get through the day.
Another day, another celebrity answering for blackface. This time, it’s Joy Behar. During a 2016 episode of “The View,” she shared a photo of herself on Halloween when she was 29. “I went as a beautiful African woman,” she revealed. That clip resurfaced on Twitter yesterday, courtesy of “The Wrap” editor Jon Levine. Apparently, the Twitterverse was none too pleased about it and started comparing that situation to Megyn Kelly’s firing over defending blackface last fall. One user said, “Megyn Kelly was fired from her show for asking a hypothetical question about blackface. Joy Behar actually wore blackface, and admitted it, and showed a picture of it on TV, yet she still has her job.” Another pointed out, “Just a reminder that Megyn Kelly was fired for saying that blackface was acceptable when she was a kid and not actually *participating* in blackface like all of these people.” At this point, neither Joy nor “The View” has addressed the controversy.
Kanye West was unwillingly involved in a financial scene. According to TMZ, a guy Kanye knew secretly contacted a man named Philipp Plein, who is staging a big New York Fashion Week event this coming Monday. The guy told Phillip he is Kanye’s rep and started the negotiation process for for Kanye to perform. They locked in a 7-figure fee for Kanye perform. Next, the guy forged Kanye’s name on the contract and then had a $900,000 advance wired to an account, which is now empty. Kanye isn’t performing at the show, despite Phillip losing out on almost a million dollars.
Does Meghan Markle have imaginary friends? As we’ve previously reported, Meghan Markle has taken a lot of heat about her dad, and recently a number of sources came to her defense. In short, they say that Meghan isn’t the ice queen you think and has tried multiple times to reconnect with her father, Thomas Markle. The Mirror has their own theories of who the “best friends” could be, since they’ve all claimed to have visited her in the United Kingdom before. The publication throws out names like her Los Angeles buddy Heather Dorak and, of course, her celeb hairstylist bestie Jessica Mulroney. But Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, says she isn’t convinced, piping up to call the report “fake news.” She’s taken to Twitter to call the sources “imaginary.” She wrote, “‘Sources say’ means imaginary sources, and if the narcissist is wealthy they pay very expensive PR teams to change the way people see you.” Samantha just can’t stop being nasty to her sister and sounds like such a mean person that she herself probably doesn’t have any friends, real OR imaginary.
