Naomi Campbell continues assaulting those her serve her every whim
By Brian Frederick

LONDON, UK (Hollywood Today)
6/22/08 -
Whether you’re an assistant, employee, police officer or flight attendant with the unfortunate task of working in first class with Naomi Campbell, on your flight
watch out because you are sure to get assaulted, spit on, or worse, called the R-Word –racist!

With each abusive thrust of spit or a beating you are nothing but a servant in her mind.
Don’t expect any apologizes from her if you are lucky enough to be spit on by the prima donna model.
“As for British Airways, I don’t apologize,” Campbell said.

Campbell was sentenced on Friday and required to pay a fine of ₤2,300 ($4,543) and serve 200 hours of community service for kicking, spitting, and swearing at the police officers summoned to remove her from a British Airways’ aircraft at Heathrow Airport in April.
She is expected to attend anger management classes.

“I was called a racial name (gollywog) on that flight, and that was part of my reaction.
It was not a passenger,” Campbell said.
It was also not clear who Campbell was referring too or what other part of the incident occurred that lit her fuse.

British Airways quickly responded.
“British Airways does not accept allegations of racism.
We are proud of our diversity.
We fly to 90 different countries around the world and employ a multi-nationality work force.
We have strict policies concerning dignity at work and have long-standing training programs on diversity and inclusion,” the airline said.

In April of this year, Campbell was waiting in the first class cabin of the aircraft and was told one of her bags was, “missing in the system.”
Then all hell broke loose.
Campbell was so heated, she went into a tornadic rage of hostility.
The Captain was forced to call Heathrow airport police and have Campbell escorted off the aircraft.
The bag in question contained an Yves Saint Laurent suit she was contracted to wear for a talk show in the U.S.

Campbell has a very long history of assaulting the working class people beneath her.

Last year Campbell admitted to “reckless assault” for throwing a mobile phone at her housekeeper, Ana Scolavino.
She was sentenced to one week of community service in New York.
Scolavino is the second housekeeper to pursue criminal charges against Campbell.

Gaby Gibson sued Campbell for her violent treatment towards her.
“She (Campbell) is a violent racist bigot,” housekeeper Gibson said.
There appears to be a double standard in the mind of Campbell -
Do as I say not as I do.
The case is still pending.
However, Campbell’s lawyers are trying to “work out” a settlement which could have already happened privately.

In 2000 Campbell was charged for beating an assistant while filming in Canada.
She pled guilty to assault.
The list of other legal problems and alleged accusations of assault by Campbell against people she has encountered since 2000, is too enormous for this one journalist to write out.

Like Snoop Dogg, ex-con Stewart won’t be having tea with the Queen anytime soon
By Brian Frederick

LONDON, UK (Hollywood Today)
6/21/08 - -
“We continue to oppose the entry to the UK of individuals where we believe their presence in the United Kingdom is not conducive to the public good or where they have been found guilty of serious criminal offenses abroad,” said a representative of the British Border Agency.

Martha Stewart (66) and her broker Peter Bacanovic (46) were convicted in US Federal Court for obstruction of justice, conspiracy, and making false statements (lying) with regard to her sale of ImClone stock in 2004.
Neither Stewart nor Bacanovic were convicted with the actual sale of Stewart’s ImClone stock.

Stewart received a five-month prison sentence and served for an additional five months and three weeks of mansion confinement on her estate…oh it sucks to be rich.

“Martha loves England; the country and English culture are near and dear to her heart.
She has engagements with English companies and business leaders and hopes this can be resolved so that she will be able to visit soon,” said Charles Koppelman in a written statement.
Koppelman is chairman of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.

Stewart’s plans include a speaking engagement at the Royal Academy and meetings with leisure and fashion leaders such as designer Jasper Conran.

The Stewart marketing team was in the Polish capital of Warsaw on Friday to promote her recent launch of Martha Stewart Living magazine and to exhibit photographs she took of various landscapes.
Stewart was hoping to be in the UK later this week during her promotional tour for MSL magazine.

In a downtown mall in the capital city, Stewart was greeted by eager fans waiting to get a glimpse of the infamous one-time billionaire – at least on paper.
“As a Polish-American, I feel a strong connection to this beautiful country and to its people.
This trip is a wonderful opportunity for me to connect with my heritage,” Stewart said to the crowd.

Stewart’s executive team is trying to “resolve” her visa issue with country’s border agency while she is in Europe.

“It’s a bit silly given some of the other people allowed in to the country,” a spokesperson with the British Border Agency said according to AP.
The UN atomic watchdog chief warned on Saturday that an attack on Iran over its controversial nuclear program would turn the region into a fireball, as Tehran rejected an Israeli strike as "impossible."
Mohamed ElBaradei also warned that he would not be able to continue in his role as International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director general should the Islamic republic be attacked.

Western countries have upgraded the food and fuel crisis into a national security concern as they fear record high energy and agriculture commodity costs are destabilizing key developing regions of the world.
The concerns come as the world suffers for the first time since 1973 from the confluence of record oil and food prices.
Corn, soybean and meat prices jumped this week to all-time highs, while oil prices hit a record of almost $140 a barrel.
Leaders from oil-producing and oil-consuming nations will meet here Sunday to try to pinpoint the reasons behind the rise in oil prices, which have doubled over the past year, and to find ways to bring them down.
The summit, hastily convened by Saudi Arabia after oil prices nearly reached $140 a barrel this month, is meant to encourage key consumers and producers to join forces to combat high prices, officials said.
Though officials from the more than 30 countries gathering here agree that the price must come down, they disagree sharply on the cause of the steep climb.
***A Harvard University dropout who ushered in the home computer age and made billions of dollars along the way will have his last official day of work at Microsoft on June 27.
Three people will essentially fill the void left behind when Bill Gates retires from the company he and friend Paul Allen co-founded in 1975.
Since Gate's began his transition from leading Microsoft to heading his personally-bankrolled charity, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, his job as chief software architect has been handled by Ray Ozzie

***Sly Stallone, the star of the Rocky and Rambo films, is to become the first well-known Hollywood actor to star in a Bollywood movie.
Stallone's fellow action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger, now governor of California, will also feature in the production.
The two will appear alongside the Bollywood stars Ashkay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor in Incredible Love, the story of an Indian stuntman who takes Hollywood by storm but cannot find true love there.

Crack, cigarette and who-knows-what-else smoking Amy Winehouse has a lung disease.
Her father, Mitch, spilled the beans on her hospitalization, admitting the 24-year-old has contracted emphysema -- the same disease Johnny Carson died from when he 79.
Mitch told the Daily Mail, "With smoking crack cocaine and the cigarettes her lungs are all gunked up ...
She's got 70 per cent lung capacity."
Amy has been in the hospital since collapsing in her London home last week.

The existence of ice on Mars was confirmed today by NASA scientists, the first time frozen water has been sampled on another planet.

Water in liquid form is an essential ingredient for life.
Whitish, dice-sized chunks, which were dug from the rocky red soil and warmed in the sun, vanished four days after the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Phoenix probe dug them up June 15.

They confirm what NASA satellites have suggested for years:

Frozen water exists several centimeters beneath Mars's surface


***Warner Bros new action comedy Get Smart has easily won the battle of big studio comedies with $15M on Friday and a likely $40M opening weekend.

The movie, adapted from the classic Mel Brooks-Buck Henry late 60's TV classic received decent reviews (51% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and 53% Positive on MetaCritic),

and it is well on its way to one of the all-time best openings for a live action television adaptation.

***Rumbling into its 39th year, the loose-jointed Comic-Con fan gathering has become the single most important promotional stop on Hollywood's festival circuit.


John Travolta built this $2.5 million dollar Florida Scientolohouse at the end of a private runway in Ocala, Florida, which includes parking for his Boeing 707 and Gulfstream jets.

Oh, and a 16-car garage.
