As accusations of sexual harassment against director James Toback continue to mount – now numbering in the hundreds – the Writers Guild of America, East, of which Toback is a member, issued a statement Tuesday morning condemning him.
“The allegations against James Toback are deeply troubling. They are both extensive and consistent, and this sort of behavior cannot be tolerated," the WGAE said.
For now, the guild did not announce any steps to revoke Toback's membership. But the WGAE stated that it is "conducting a thorough review of all the ways the union can fight to ensure that our members can work in an atmosphere free from sexual harassment and aggression."
Seth Meyers has had enough with Donald Trump’s feud with a fallen soldier’s widow.
Back from a weeklong hiatus, the “Late Night” host implored Trump on Monday night to just behave like a “normal, decent human being” by apologizing to Myeisha Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson.
It's another uptown girl for downtown man Billy Joel.
The musician welcomed his third child, the second with wife Alexis, on Sunday, according to the birth announcement posted on Joel's website on Monday.
The piano man's daughter Remy Anne was born at 7:50 p.m at New York University Hospital in the Big Apple and weighed in at 7 pounds and 3 ounces. Accompanying the birth announcement was a photo of the three-time dad carrying the pink-clad, wide-eyed newborn.
If it wasn't clear before, it is now: Kathy Griffin and Lisa Bloom are beyond done.
Griffin, who's on tour in Australia, took a shot at her former attorney Sunday on Twitter: "Dear @LisaBloom pls stop calling me. If you'd like to refund me the tens of thousands of $$ I wasted on your services maybe I'll talk to you."
Bloom responded that same day, saying Griffin was the only client she has ever had "who chose to extemporize at a press conference rather than read from notes we planned in advance." Now, Bloom said in her statement, Griffin blames her for the bad reaction to comments that were decidedly ad-libbed.
Stevie Wonder will perform two of his watershed 1970s albums, “Talking Book” and “Innervisions,” back to back for the 21st edition of his annual House Full of Toys benefit concert, slated to take place Dec. 10 at Staples Center.
“Even though House Full of Toys will be celebrating 21 years,” Wonder said in a statement, "the joy of giving in the spirit of song will make this night such pleasured fun for the old and young."
The idea to perform two albums follows previous holiday benefit shows in 2013 and 2014, when he focused on his 1976 album “Songs in the Key of Life,” performing the double album in its entirety with numerous guests, including several who performed on the album four decades earlier.
Documentary filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering — the duo behind the Oscar-nominated “The Invisible War,” about rape in the U.S. military, and “The Hunting Ground,” a look at sex abuse on college campuses — say they have wanted for years to make a film about sexual assault in Hollywood but couldn’t get cooperation from the entertainment industry.
Then allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein opened the floodgates. And now their Untitled Hollywood Sexual Assault Documentary project has the green light.
“Everyone was frightened about what would happen to their careers, and worried about whether they would be sued. Distributors were unwilling to fund or release the film, and few people were willing to talk on the record,” producer Ziering said in a news release Monday. “Then the Weinstein stories broke, and it's like an invisible dam collapsed.”
