Next step uncertain in Woody Allen allegations
mysanantonio.com / Sun, 9 Feb 2014 00:00:17 UT
NEW YORK (AP) — A week bracketed by op-ed letters of accusation and denial of child molestation left little clarity and scant hope for resolution in a bitter saga that has haunted Woody Allen and the Farrow family for more than two decades. The back-and-forth between Allen and his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, breathed new fire into a long dormant scandal, but what happens next is uncertain, with the possibility of legal recourse and continued scrutiny in the weeks and months ahead. Farrow, in her most detailed account yet, alleged in an open letter published Feb. 1 by The New York Times that Allen "sexual assaulted" her when she was 7 years old at the Farrows' Connecticut home, renewing a charge against the movie director that was first leveled in 1992. The two acrimoniously separated after Farrow discovered Allen was having an affair with her adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, who was 19 or 21 at the time. [...] the rampant debate sparked by Dylan Farrow's accusation will likely continue to stir questions over the alleged molestation, how claims of sexual assault are publicly weighed, and the legacy of Allen's acclaimed work as a filmmaker. Though a suit would offer the opportunity to retry the case in civil court, it would insure a drawn-out, very public battle that would be taxing for all involved.

One Direction cleans up at Kids’ Choice Awards

Robert Downey Jr. turned inspirational speaker at the Kids' Choice Awards, Pharrell set another fashion trend, David Blaine lost his head during a slime-induced illusion, One Direction and Jennifer Lawrence cleaned up, and the green goo bath finally caught up with Mark Wahlberg — thanks to some unlikely slimers. [...] life has kicked my proverbial butt countless times in many ways for many years, until I decided one day to start kicking back. More than a dozen former and current teen stars joined on stage to salute Schneider, the creator of several of the network's most popular shows, including iCarly, ''Kenan & Kel and Sam & Cat, a current Nickelodeon hit that won favorite TV show and favorite TV actress for star Ariana Grande. The awards show isn't much more than an excuse to slime some of today's top stars, and first-time host Wahlberg executed several slimings as he successfully escaped the green goo for the show's first 80 minutes.

Prostitute accused of killing yacht-owning client with heroin
mysanantonio.com / Wed, 9 Jul 2014 02:01:09 UT
Police arrested a prostitute on homicide charges Friday after they say she administered a lethal dose of heroin to a client and left him to die on a yacht in Santa Cruz last year. After obtaining e-mails and text messages between Tichleman and her clients, including the victim, police learned she had met with the man the night he died and provided him with heroin, police said. Rather than call police, investigators say Tichleman gathered her belongings, including drugs and paraphernalia - at one point stepping over the victim's body to finish a glass of wine - before leaving the boat and lowering the blinds to conceal the body, police said.
Oscarcast: A fine scene hosted by Ellen DeGeneres
mysanantonio.com / Mon, 3 Mar 2014 05:40:20 UT
NEW YORK (AP) — With only a week to catch our breath after the lengthy cavalcade of Winter Olympics coverage, this year's Oscarcast may have seemed a refreshingly snug handout of awards. The show's kickoff, which, unlike so many years before, wasn't an extravagant comedic film featuring the host with a bevy of stars, but instead, found DeGeneres arriving on stage to deliver her simple, but satisfyingly funny, monologue. Unlike many hosts, she was a regular presence, at one moment gathering stars in the audience for a group selfie to tweet, at another bringing in a pizza delivery guy to share slices with audience members (and then confessing she had no money to pay the bill: "Where's Harvey Weinstein?"). Best supporting actor (for "Dallas Buyers Club") Jared Leto's acceptance speech paid tribute to his mother, thanking her "for teaching me to dream," then celebrated the dreams "in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela" — before pledging his support to those who have felt injustice "because of who you are or who you love." The ironic spectacle of veteran actress Kim Novak, who was a presenter in the category of animation but, at age 81, revealed an eerily baby-smooth face that seemed frozen in place. Pink performing "Over the Rainbow" against panoramic clips from "The Wizard of Oz" in a salute to that beloved film's 75th anniversary. Superfluous remarks from the president of the Academy, a mission statement whose pace-arresting effect was underscored by DeGeneres a moment later when she cracked, "Good luck following that, Amy Adams and Bill Murray!" The heartfelt acceptance spilling out of best supporting actress Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave"), who made it clear she understood that "so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else's."
