If you’ve been keeping up with Jersey Shore, you know that Angelina is pretty crazy. Sure, the show’s portrayal of her could be attributed to the editing and the context things are shown in, but now there’s proof that Angelina is actually short-tempered and not afraid to get into a fight.
According to PerezHilton.com, while she was riding in a limo with her mother, Annmarie, Angelina grew increasingly irritated as their driver hit on her mom. Again, if you’ve ever seen the show, you know that when Angelina gets mad, she just snaps.
Things heated up, with swearing and yelling involved, so the limo driver pulled over, apparently giving Angelina the opportunity to strike. She allegedly struck the driver in the head and then repeatedly hit him.
Angelina’s mother confirmed the story, saying, “After Angelina fought with the guy he called his brother who immediately arrived on the scene, and then threatened to get more people to come and fight us. It was scary because it was 3:00am and we were in a bad neighborhood.”
It’s pretty clear what went down, so it’s only a matter of time before a lawsuit is slapped on the Jersey Shore guidette.
Lady Gaga’s former producer and boyfriend Rob Fusari recently settled a $30 Million lawsuit with the superstar. However singer songwriter Wendy Starland claims she introduced Fusari to Gaga, and wants her cut according to Forbes.
Starland filed suit on Friday in Newark Federal Court claiming that in 2005, Fusari asked her to find a “unique female singer, under the age of 25, who could be the female equivalent of the lead singer of the band The Strokes.” Starland says Fusari promised her that “if she could find and introduce him to such a singer, they would work together to develop the singer and share equally in any revenues earned as a result.”
Starland further claims she was cut out of the deal once Gaga got signed, and now is looking for her share. There is no comment yet from Fusari.
Just when it looks like “American Idol” reject Ian Benardo finally has come to his senses, he screws it all up. The “singer” initially filed a lawsuit against the show for $300 Million, but now was withdrawn the lawsuit and filed another one for $100 Million.
TMZ reports Benardo refiled the lawsuit for workplace discrimination and sexual harassment. Originally he filed the suit with the NY State Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, but was later told the lawsuit didn’t qualify.
So what’s the reason for the lawsuit? Benardo claims “Idol” producers exploited his sexual orientation and told him to “gay it up.”
Maybe that’s the reason, or perhaps its just sour grapes? Or maybe he is just trying to hold on to his fifteen minutes of fame? Either way, watch the video below of his audition. What do you think?

TMZ is reporting that NBC execs claim Conan was lying during the interview with Steve Kroft and misrepresented the facts. During the interview Conan explained that it was much cheaper to fire him than Jay Leno, however NBC assures the cost would have been about the same.
Another issue during the interview was whether NBC was losing money with O’Brien as the host.
Kroft: “They said that the — for the first time in history, ‘The Tonight Show’ was losing money.”
Conan: “I don’t see how that’s, I honestly don’t see how that’s possible. It’s really not possible. It isn’t possible.”

There is a lesson here – never be too quick and jump to a judgement. Recent allegations have surfaced accusing Steven Seagal of a bunch of sex related crimes. However the woman making these accusations has somewhat of a checkered past.
“The lawsuit filed by Kayden Nguyen against Steven Seagal is a ridiculous and absurd claim by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for using illegal narcotics,” Marty Singer, told CBS’ Crimesider.
If that wasn’t enough, Seagal’s lawyer wrote Nguyen’s lawyer a letter explaining that the lawsuit violates the terms of confidentiality when she was hired, reports E!.
And yet here’s another issue facing Nguyen’s credibility. CBS highlights a video of Nguyen saying,” I can use my sex appeal to get any girl that I want and to trick any guy into getting what I want” on ‘The Tyra Banks Show’ in January 2009.
Steven Seagal has been accused of engaging women in the sex trade, TMZ.com reports.
A 23-year-old former model claims in a lawsuit obtained by TMZ that she had an interview with Seagal last February for an executive assistant position. When Kayden Nguyen got the job, she says she showed up for work and learned, “Mr. Seagal had been keeping two young female Russian ‘Attendants’ on staff who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
Nguyen claims in her lawsuit that one of the ‘Attendants’ had recently quit and that it was this position, not the executive assistant job, that Seagal intended her to take on.
Nguyen alleges that on her very first night on the job, Seagal treated her “as his sex toy.”

According to the suit, “Cherry took her aside and forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head.” The lawsuit then goes on to say that after the supposed incident, Cherry went to Sheridan’s trailer to “beg forgiveness.”

The producer, who previously was on songs like “Wild Wild West” with Will Smith and Destiny’s Child “Bootylicious,” also claims that he wasn’t given the correct amount of royalty fees.
“It’s an age-old story in the music business,” said Fusari’s lawyer Robert Meloni. “You become famous and you turn on the person who discovered you.”

Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, Ojani Noa, is countersuing the singer for $100 million, reports Perez Hilton. He is also suing her father, a business partner, her lawyer and the law firm for intentionally interfering with the production of his mockumentary.
“We are also suing for fraud,” said his agent, Ed Meyer. He says Lopez’s mother “previously sold some of Ojani Noa’s home video footage to Univision without Ojani Noa’s express permission for $30,000.”
A hearing is planned for Tuesday, but Meyer is doubtful it will go ahead.
“We believe that J. Lo.’s attorney did not meet the judge’s extended deadline to file his Proofs of Service, so TRO and OSC (Order to Show Cause) should legally not go forward on Tuesday,” he said.
