Bill Cosby’s Wife Lashes out at the DA After her Husband’s Guilty Verdict

in Scandals by

Bill cosby found guilty Camille Cosby is now speaking out about her husband’s guilty verdict. She released a statement to the media that makes very disparaging comments against the Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, her husband’s chief accuser Andrea Constand, the media, and the jury. Her scathing statement, released today, has raised a lot of eyebrows and people are not happy with Camille at all.

Her husband, disgraced actor Bill Cosby, was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for Cosby’s January 2004 sexual assault of Andrea Constand. The jury, consisting of seven men and five women, spent two days to decide Cosby’s fate. He is allowed to stay free on bail until sentencing. The judge did not announce a date for the sentencing but the law requires that it be done within 100 days of the conviction. Cosby, is facing up to 30 years in prison.

After the verdict, Cosby’s lead defense attorney, Tom Mesereau, told the press outside the courthouse and the fight is not over. When asked by a reporter if they plan on appealing, he said, “We are very disappointed by the verdict. We don’t think Mr. Cosby is guilty of anything, and the fight is not over.”

Camille stood by her man the entire trial. She stayed away from the trial itself but she was verbally supporting him in the media. She was there for the defense’s closing arguments. After the verdict, she put her arm around her husband and then left when it was the prosecutor’s turn to argue, she left.

Camille Cosby’s statement is quite lengthy but there are few real gems in the midst of her victim blaming nonsense. She starts her rambling statement talking about how the constitution was were powerful men and it doesn’t include any input from women, Native Americans, poor white meant and absolutely no enslaved Africans.

She then launches into claiming that Bill Cosby was demonized in the media and labeled guilty before the trial even started. She said, “The overall media, with their frenzied, relentless demonization of him and unquestioning acceptance of accusers’ allegations without any attendant proof, have superseded the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which guarantee due process and equal protection, and thereby eliminated the possibility of a fair trial and unbiased jury.”

She then compares her husband’s trial to those trials of Emmett Till and Darryl Hunt. Till was a 14 year African American boy who was falsely accused of sexually assaulting a white woman. He was adducted by the family of the woman that accused him of sexual assault and was brutally and tragically murdered. Decades later, his accuser admitted she fabricated the story. In the case of Darryl Hunt, he was arrested and charged at 19 years old of a sexual assault but was later exonerated based on DNA evidence that cleared him of the crime. Camille believes that Cosby is being unfairly treated just like these two men. She says that the justice system fails to protect African Americans who have been falsely accused.

Her biggest beef however was with the Montgomery County Courthouse. She says, “The worst injustices, however, have been carried out in the Pennsylvania Montgomery County Courthouse. Three criminal charges, promised during an unethical campaign for the district attorney’s office, were filed against my husband…all based on what I believe to be a falsified account by the newly elected district attorney’s key witness.”

She then calls for a criminal investigation into district attorney and his “cohorts”.  She believes that these people plotted to get her husband behind bars because they wanted to advance their political careers. She calls it an abuse of power and calls the prosecution, the witnesses and the judge “vicious, lying, self-absorbed paradigms of evilness.”

Constand’s lawyer Dolores Troiani had only two comments about Camille’s rant. She said, “why would any reputable outlet publish that? Twelve honorable jurors – peers of Cosby – have spoken,” Troiani said. “There is nothing else that needs to be said.”

 

Kate Middleton Gives Birth to 3rd Royal Baby Earlier Today

Kate Middleton gives birth to 3rd son Kate Middleton gives birth to 3rd baby

 

Earlier today, Kate Middleton gave birth to a healthy baby boy at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London. The healthy baby weighted a whopping 8 lbs and 7 ounces and there were no complications with the birth. Prince William was present for the birth and a palace spokesperson said that both the mother and child are doing really well.

The baby boy, fifth in line for the throne, was visited earlier by his sister Princess Charlotte and his brother Prince George. As Prince William was leaving the hospital, he joked saying, “thrice the worry now”, and “We didn’t keep you waiting too long this time.”

Prince William was also asked if they had decided on a name yet, and his answer was that the world would soon find out.

Later that evening, the royal family exited the hospital with their new addition for a brief moment. Kate Middleton wore a bright red Jenny Packham dress with a white collar as she left the hospital. People made the connection that the colors of the dress reflect St George’s flag and that Princess Diana wore red and white when she left hospital with a then newborn Prince Harry in 1984.

The official social media accounts for Kensington Palace has been updating royal watchers about the latest news. The official Twitter account tweeted out, “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news.”

Kensington Palace has stated that the name of the baby would be announced soon. Meanwhile a formal notice of the birth has been posted on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace. People are taking bets on the name and the favorites include Arthur, Albert, Frederick, James and Philip. Our guess is that his name will be Philip after Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh husband to Queen Elizabeth.

Congrats to the royal family on the latest adorable addition!

Love is Dead, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are Splitting up

in Divorce by

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan call is quits
After nine years of marriage and one daughter, the couple has announced that they are planning on going their separate ways. The news came out yesterday much to the sadness of fans everywhere. The couple met on the set of their 2006 movie, Step UpThey started dating a short time after the movie finished filming and then they got married in 2009. Jenna gave birth to Everly, their daughter, who is turning five this year.

The couple released a joint statement on their individual Instagram accounts that said there was no scandal or terrible even that led to the demise of their marriage. The statement was sweet and stated that the couple decided that they wanted to lovingly part ways.

“Hey world!

So…We have something we would like to share.

First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for.  We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into “alternative facts” 😉  So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction.

We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple.  We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy.  Sending lots of love to everyone, Chan&Jenna.”

Jenna did say in her last interview before the news of the split that it was difficult that everyone thought that both her and Channing had the perfect marriage. During her interview with Health Magazine for the March issue, Jenna opened up about her marriage. Jenna talked about how she feels like she never gets time for herself because of the demands of her family and career. The most telling quote in the whole interview gives some major foreshadowing into the future demise of this marriage. Jenna said, “When people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one’s perfect. I think there are such things as great fits. It is a great fit as long as you are growing together, and I think up until this point we’ve really grown together. Even if one starts to grow, the other catches up and vice versa. But I think a couple needs to be conscious and to want to do the work and be willing to look at the parts of you that need work. Both of us have been pretty aware and willing to do that. We’ve always had the same values. But we’re not perfect! Are you kidding? We fight like other couples, we disagree about things, we have days where we don’t really like each other.”

The couple has not made an additional statement, but like most people in the world we are devastated over this last celeb couple splitting up.

Elon Musk Deletes his Company’s Social Media Profiles in Wake of Cambridge Analytica Scandal

in Scandals by

 

 

Elon Musk deletes his companies' social media profilesElon Musk very abruptly deleted the social media profiles for both Tesla and SpaceX this last Friday. The move did come as a surprise to Musk fans but since the whole Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal, Musk decided that is was best to delete the profiles all together to take stand against Facebook. Last week there was a huge outcry on social media to take a stand against Facebook. The hashtag #deletefacebook started to trend last week on Twitter and so far many have joined the movement to get rid of their Facebook pages. Musk decided to also join the movement by deleting both the SpaceX and Tesla Facebook pages. The SpaceX account had 3 million followers, and Tesla hd about 4 million.

This bold move came in the wake of the latest Facebook impropriety. It was discovered last week that the consulting firm, Cambridge Analytica, had wrongfully harvested personal data for over 50 million Facebook users.  The information wastes by the political consulting firm who was backing President Trump’s 2016 election campaign. The information that was collected was then used to developed a software program that profiled the users to predict voting patterns. Through these predictions, they created micro-targeted ads that were designed to influence US citizens’ voting decisions.

According to Techradar.com, Cambridge Analytica was able to gain access to the information through very underhanded means. According to the article, “Cambridge Analytica (CA) obtained voter data through a Facebook-linked app named ‘thisisyourdigitallife’. Through the app, CA member Aleksandr Kogan paid Facebook users in exchange for a detailed personality test, supposedly for academic research purposes.”

The #deletefacebook hashtag started with the cofounder of WhatsApp (that is also owned by Facebook). Brian Acton started the movement by tweeting, “It is time. #DeleteFacebook” and Musk responded with tweeting “What’s Facebook?”.

Another Twitter user called him out saying, “Delete SpaceX page on Facebook if you’re the man?” and in typical Musk fashion, he responded with, “I didn’t realize there was one. Will do.”

Soon another tweet followed asking if Musk was going to also delete the Tesla Facebook and Musk responded with another cheeky answer saying, “Definitely. Looks lame anyway.”

Musk deletes facebook for both Tesla and SpaceX

There has also been called for Musk to delete the Instagram accounts for both Tesla and SpaceX since Facebook owns Instagram but so far both those profiles are still up. Musk did acknowledge that Facebook’s negative influence is creeping in but for now he has not made another public statements about getting rid of the Instagram profiles. For those still wanting to keep up with the company, both companies still have their Twitter, Youtube and Flickr accounts.

As the enigmatic SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has been known to make some pretty unpredictable moves, but he usually follows his gut on what is best for his companies and his gut is usually right. But according to Musk, he doesn’t even use Facebook anyways. In his last thoughts on the matter, he tweeted, “Instagram’s probably ok imo, so long as it stays fairly independent. I don’t use FB & never have, so don’t think I’m some kind of martyr or my companies are taking a huge blow. Also, we don’t advertise or pay for endorsements, so … don’t care.” and he then added, “We’ve never advertised with FB. None of my companies buy advertising or pay famous people to fake endorse. Product lives or dies on its own merits.”

Make Zuckerberg has since made a public apology and did the standard public apology tour but it took a few days before the news broke before the Facebook founder stepped forward to offer any explanation as to why this breach of trust even occurred in the first place. The fallout continues as sharp drop in share price erased close to $50 billion of the company’s market cap. Now Zuckerberg has been asked to testify before congress to address the “breach of trust” that occurred.
