Donald Trump and Miss Universe Organization Win $5 Million

December 24, 2012

Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin made a claim back in June that a fellow pageant contestant had seen a list of the top five Miss USA winners prior to them being announced. Monnin went public with this information saying that the pageant was “fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent and in many ways trashy.”

Donald Trump being Donald fired back immediately, suing on behalf of the Miss Universe Organization, filing an arbitration action in New York.

The U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Theodore H. Katz said that “the method in which the Miss USA Pageant is judged… precludes any reasonable possibility that the judging was rigged.” The Miss Universe Organization was awarded $5 million in damages after it was ruled that Monnin defamed the pageant and organization.

Trump stated, “Going to arbitration was the appropriate action to take under the circumstances, and while I feel very badly for Sheena, she did the wrong thing. She was really nasty, and we had no choice. It is an expensive lesson for her.”

Blair Stover says that Monnin’s statements were labeled as “defamatory”, “false”, and “showed reckless disregard.”

December 21, 2012

Marisa Miller welcomed her first child with music producer husband, Griffin Guess, on Thursday, December 13th.

At 7:58 p.m. in Santa Cruz, California, Gavin Lee Guess was born weighing in at 8 lbs., 10 oz. and measuring 22 ¼ inches long.

Miller, 34, stated, “I’m completely overjoyed by the birth of our son. I feel so blessed to be a mom and am so excited to experience this next part of life.”

In June, Miller confirmed she was pregnant and in July announced she was having a baby boy. Throughout the pregnancy, Miller concentrated on healthy habits which clearly paid off when she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

Miller bared her baby bump for a series of photos, embracing her new body. “Gaining weight is part of charting your progress,” she said when asked about her weight. “Yes, I was seeing numbers I had never seen before, but I let go of that because I had a new goal and focus.”

Lindsay Lohan Could be Facing Jail Time

December 18, 2012

This morning, Lindsay Lohan’s probation was formally revoked in a Los Angeles courtroom though she was not present. This could eventually land Lohan back in jail.

Lohan lied to the police when she claimed she wasn’t behind the wheel in a car crash she was involved in back in June. Shawn Holley, Lohan’s attorney, was able to get the court hearing pushed back to January 15, when Lohan will be charged with three misdemeanor charges.

The three misdemeanor counts that Lohan will be charged with are counts of willfully, resisting, delaying, or obstructing a police officer; driving a vehicle on a highway with willful and wanton disregard for the safety of person or property; and giving false information to a police officer.

Lohan was placed on probation back in March after pleading no contest to stealing a necklace. The conditions of her probation were that she obeys all laws which she broke when the car crash charges were filed.

The most time Lohan could face in jail is 245 days since she already completed 120 days. Either way she’ll have to turn herself in for booking which will add another picture to her mug-shot collection.

Blair Stover says that Lohan will have to appear in court on January 7th in New York for the assault of Tiffany Mitchell.

Ashley Judd Considering a Run for the U.S. Senate

December 7, 2012

Hollywood actress, Ashley Judd, may be pursuing a seat in the U.S. Senate. Blair Stover reports on this shocking political move.

Judd is seriously debating whether or not she should run in the 2014 campaign against the top Senate Republican, Mitch McConnell, for the Kentucky Senate seat. She has discussed her potential political career with New York Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, and is also doing opposition research on herself to gauge her weaknesses.

Kentucky Rep. John Yarmuth had this to say after speaking with Judd, “She is doing all the things that a serious candidate exploring a race should do. I think there are a lot of people, and I was one of them, who wanted to let her know that her candidacy would be an exciting prospect for us.”

McConnell’s campaign manager, Jesse Benton, had this to say regarding Judd’s possible run, “It’s going to sting. We’re going to make sure that you don’t come out with your nose clean. We’re going to drive your negatives up and very aggressively and publicly litigate your record before the citizens of Kentucky.”

Judd’s spokeswoman did not comment on these reports but the actress has previously said that she was honored by the suggestions that she should run for office.

Judd recently attended the Democratic National Convention as a delegate from Tennessee, where she is currently living. Judd has been outspoken on her opinions of abortion rights and environmental causes.

With her degree from University of Kentucky and her master’s degree from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, a political career may be a great next step for Judd.
