An upsetting video has gone viral on Reddit, where a supervisor is caught yelling and slapping a co-worker for minor mistakes.
Bullying is never an acceptable thing to do and the poor man taking the abuse has probably been through a lot to have to stay working at this job.
What makes this okay to do?? Like EVER?!?!
If anyone could get Rihanna to talk about her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, it was OBVS Oprah. O is basically a therapist who hypnotizes victims into sharing their deepest feelings. I’m pretty sure she carries tear gas to make her interviewees cry. Sheer talent.
RiRi appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter for a heartfelt interview filmed in Barbados, in which she reveals she’s still vey close to Chris Brown. Since lifting the restraining order on him, the two have been working on their friendship. ”We’re very, very close friends,” she told Oprah.
I have to say, writing about Rihanna and Chris Brown these days is a very hard task. The rumours that we usually encounter from Twitter and gossip websites are usually fabricated and spun until they don’t resemble a kernel of truth. That’s why we’re not really entitled to form any judgements about their relationship… not to mention, you really shouldn’t form judgements about ANYONE’s relationships.
Still, you have to appreciate that Rihanna was candid in her interview with Oprah. Plus, she made a good point about the danger of labelling someone who legitimately needs help a “monster.” She said: “I just felt like…he made that mistake because he needs help. And who’s going to help him?…Everyone’s going to say he’s a monster without looking at the source. And I was more concerned about him.”

Popeater is reporting that Lindsay’s parents, Dina and Michael Lohan, are incredibly proud of their daughter and firmly believe that she has taken huge steps toward getting fully healthy once more.
“She’s just a different person,” Dina explained in an interview with Matt Lauer. “Shes been in a couple facilities, but this one, to me, has really changed her.”
In a separate interview with the Early Show, Michael echoed Dina’s sentiments. “She has taken the right steps and put the right people back into her life,” he gushed.
Lindsay’s parents have had a history of public feuding, especially over what is best for Lindsay, so it’s nice to see them agree about something for once!
Lohan is expected to stay in LA to work on her clothing line rather than return to her Long Island home. She has no upcoming film projects after dropping out of what was supposed to be her comeback vehicle, a Linda Lovelace biopic titled “Inferno”, due to her time in jail and rehab.
Keep up the good work, Lindsay! You can get better! We believe in you!
But what do you think? Do you think she is doomed or will she make it this time?
In an interview with CNN, Berry opens up about her past in the hope that it will bring the issue of domestic violence into the spotlight. Berry spent the beginning of her life watching her father physically and mentally abuse her mother before blossoming into the on-screen siren we know today.
“I’ve spent my adult life dealing with the sense of low self-esteem that sort of implanted in me. Somehow I felt not worthy,” Berry, now a mother herself, explains. “Before I’m ‘Halle Berry,’ I’m little Halle…a little girl growing in this environment that damaged me…I’ve spent my adult life trying to really heal from that.”
Berry dedicates an enormous amount of her time to the Jenesse Center, a shelter in Los Angeles that takes in abused women. She also renovates low-cost apartments to provide a new home to victims and their children as they get back on their feet.
Watch Berry’s interview on CNN here:
Chris Brown has completed his court ordered 52 week course in domestic violence. He is so proud of his accomplishment that he took to Twitter to share the good news.
On Monday Brown posted a picture of his diploma, which he received Monday afternoon. You may recall Brown was ordered to take the course after assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
Good work Chris! Too bad you didn’t figure out not to hit girls when you were 8 years old.
Phildel lived a happy life in London, England, until she was eight years old. She used to play concerts for her mother on her little toy piano. Then her parents divorced and her mother remarried to a strict and abusive man. Phildel’s step-father banned music from their household, claiming it to be an unholy waste of time.
“It was probably the worst 10 years of my life,” Phildel (yes, it is her real name; it is a compound name of her Chinese father, Philip, and Irish mother, Della) told andPOP about growing up without music. “It was absolutely awful.”
She grew up depressed and isolated, unable to practise and listen to the one thing that kept her happy. Forced to play music in secret, Phildel would spend her spare time at school in the music room, playing on the school piano. It was there that her talent for the art took shape.
In a weird twist of celebrity co-mingling, reality TV star Tila Tequila’s NFL boyfriend Shawn Merriman was arrested yesterday, according to TMZ.
Police were called to the home of San Diego Charger’s Merriman early this morning where Tila claimed he had choked her and restrained her from leaving the apartment. Tila was taken to hospital but no injuries reported.
Merriman was taken into custody with a bail set at $58,000.
His lawyer released a statement this morning saying Tila was extremely inebriated following a birthday party at Stingareer Nightclub in San Diego and Merriman did not want her to leave the house because he felt it was unsafe.
Hayden Panettiere’s father might just need a hero to get him out of this predicament.
According to E! News, Alan Panettiere was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly hitting his wife, Lesley Panettiere. Sgt. Scott Wolf, a spokesperson for the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department, said Hayden’s father got into an argument with Hayden’s mother and struck her on the left cheek up to two times with a closed fist.
The “Heroes” star’s mother called the police who arrive at the home and took her statement.
Reports claim that the spat occurred over a party the couple attended. Hayden’s dad is currently being held for $50,000 bail.
No word whether the 18-year-old star or her younger brother, Jansen Panettiere, were present during the altercation.
Rehab isn’t just trendy. Occasionally it’s necessary, especially for Dennis Rodman.
Days after being arrested for domestic battery, Rodman has checked into an outpatient rehab facility, People magazine has learned.
According to Rodman’s manager, “[Rodman's] life has not been going smoothly for the last few months since his divorce. He has not been able to see his kids. And he has been drinking too much.”
Rodman was arrested in a Los Angeles Hotel last Wednesday, after police received reports that he had abused a woman. The woman sustained injuries to her arms. Rodman is expected in court May 22 after posting $50,000 bail.
