Milla Jovovich and Daughter Ever in Paris Pictures Photos

I’m sorry, but I can’t look at Milla Jovovich without thinking of that scene from The Fifth Element.

Mul. Ti. Pass!

Anyway, here’s Mila and her daughter, Ever, spending some time together in Paris.

The photo agency has this tagged as “Milla Jovovich and her son.” Despite the fact that there is a flower on this child’s hat. And they were there. Never underestimate the stupidity of your local paparazzi.

Much Ado About Nothing

56655987chrisbrown35200970621pm

Ok, everyone gathered for the dumbass arraignment and nothing happened.  It’s been extended to April 6.  You know, more time so that a deal can be cut.  Chris was there and looking contrite.  I’ll update this post when I can get a full transcript because TMZ’s sound sucks.  There was definitely some talk between Chris and his attorney, Mark Geragos.  Stay tuned…

Oh, and to be clear, this isn’t a trial-just an arraignment hearing.  This is where Chris will enter his plea, which I’m sure will be “not guilty.”  Then, a trial date will be set within sixty days of his April 6th arraignment.  Unless, of course, aforementioned deal is cut and this never goes to trial.  Which is what I suspect is actually going to happen.

UPDATE: One thing I forgot to mention is that Chris Brown needs to behave himself between now and the sixth of April but Rihanna does not request a protective order against him.  Therefore, he’s allowed to be with her as long as he doesn’t punch her.

UPDATE: Okay, at the end of the feed, there was a brief conversation between Chris and the attorney that was there to represent Rihanna, Donald Etra.  Etra told Chris that Rihanna wants this over as soon as possible.  Sigh.  Sad.

Chris Brown Trial About to Start!

Chris has left his lawyer’s office and is on his way to the courtroom.

The trial starts in mere minutes!

While you wait for the results, I’d like to point out that CNN has the most detailed account I’ve read of the gruesome details from a detective report. (You can check out the PDF for yourself here if you want to see it for yourself.)

“Brown was driving a vehicle with Robyn F. as the front passenger on an unknown street in Los Angeles. Robyn F. picked up Brown’s cellular phone and observed a three-page text message from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.

“A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled the vehicle over on an unknown street, reached over Robyn F. with his right hand, opened the car door and attempted to force her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F. out of the vehicle because she was wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against the passenger window of the vehicle, causing an approximate one-inch raised circular contusion.

“Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.

“Brown looked at Robyn F. and stated, ‘I’m going to beat the s–t out of you when we get home! You wait and see!’ ”

The detective said she then used her cell phone to call her personal assistant … who did not answer.

“Robyn F. pretended to talk to her and stated, ‘I’m on my way home. Make sure the police are there when I get there.’

“After Robyn F. faked the call, Brown looked at her and stated, ‘You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you!’

“Brown resumed punching Robyn F. and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in [an] attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown.

“Brown continued to punch Robyn F. on her left arm and hand, causing her to suffer a contusion on her left triceps (sic) that was approximately two inches in diameter and numerous contusions on her left hand.

“Robyn F. then attempted to send a text message to her other personal assistant. Brown snatched the cellular telephone out of her hand and threw it out of the window onto an unknown street.

“Brown continued driving and Robyn F. observed his cellular telephone sitting in his lap. She picked up the cellular telephone with her left hand and before she could make a call he placed her in a head lock with his right hand and continued to drive the vehicle with his left hand.

“Brown pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear. She was able to feel the vehicle swerving from right to left as Brown sped away. He stopped the vehicle … and Robyn F. turned off the car, removed the key from the ignition and sat on it.

“Brown did not know what she did with the key and began punching her in the face and arms. He then placed her in a head lock positioning the front of her throat between his bicep and forearm. Brown began applying pressure to Robyn F.’s left and right carotid arteries, causing her to be unable to breathe and she began to lose consciousness.

“She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gouge his eyes in an attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her. While Brown continued to punch her, she turned around and placed her back against the passenger door. She brought her knees to her chest, placed her feet against Brown’s body and began pushing him away. Brown continued to punch her on the legs and feet, causing several contusions.

“Robyn F. began screaming for help and Brown exited the vehicle and walked away. A resident in the neighborhood heard Robyn F.’s plea for help and called 911, causing a police response. An investigation was conducted and Robyn F. was issued a Domestic Violence Emergency Protective Order.”

At the end of his statement, Andrews said Brown sent her text message apologizing nine days later.

“In the text message, Brown apologized for what he had done to Robyn F. and advised [the second personal assistant] that he was going to get help.”

JAIL JAIL JAIL.

If the courts can make an example out of Paris Hilton for driving while on probation, they sure as FUCK better make an example of this little fucker.

Thanks Katie!

Uhhhh…

Either Justin Gaston went all Chris Brown on her, or Miley Cyrus got some serious upper lip injections, because homegirl was looking more than a little bit puffy at the signing of her new book, Miley Cyrus: Miles to Go, at the Barnes & Noble in NYC.

Honestly this girl does not look anything like the one on the cover of that book, almost to the point that I’m wondering if they’re using a Miley Cyrus stunt double for any event that might result in her having to read.

California Supreme Court Hears Final Arguments to Overturn Prop 8

This morning, lawyers on both sides of the fence finished up their oral arguments for the California Supreme Court, where a group of citizens is challenging Proposition 8′s Constitutionality. We’ll know within 90 days how they decide.

After three hours of arguments, it seemed as though the seven justices leaned against voiding the 18,000 same-sex marriages performed last year, but their stance on Proposition 8′s constitutionality was less clear.

They’re grappling with issues such as what “inalienable” means when used to describe a constitutional right; whether such rights can be limited or revoked by an amendment, by a revision or at all; and how majority rule balances with protection of historically disadvantaged minorities’ fundamental liberties. The court will rule within 90 days.

Big issues, but a simple decision: ALL citizens should have EQUAL RIGHTS. There’s no question here.

I hope these justices get their heads on straight and overturn this hateful bullshit.

The Pitts Descend on D.C.

56904347brad_pitt_angelina35200954340pm

Look out, America! Brad and Angie are in the capital, running amok.

On Thursday, Angelina was spotted looking especially beautiful as she shot scenes for her new flick, Salt. It looks like they’ve given her a blonde look, or at least bleached her eyebrows, and it works really well on her. Then again, everything works really well on her.

Meanwhile, Brad Pitt met with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Rep. James Clyburn to discuss his Make It Right foundation, which helps build environmentally sustainable housing for low-income residents in New Orleans who lost their homes during Hurricane Katrina.

You can watch the press conference they held afterward here. Brad only speaks like ten words, but, still. He’s very sexy when he speaks them, and that’s what counts in this world.

D.L. Hughley’s CNN Show Canceled

dl_hughley

Well, that didn’t take long!

D.L. Hughley’s Daily Show-style on CNN, D.L. Hughley Breaks the News, has been canned.

The official statement from CNN makes it sound like D.L. wanted to end the show:

“D.L. approached CNN about being permanently based in Los Angeles, where his family lives. To accommodate this, we agreed upon a new role where he will be a contributor for the network based in Los Angeles. We are eager to continue our relationship with D.L. who is a tremendous talent and a valued colleague.”

What, they couldn’t have just taped his show in LA? I heard a little rumor that they have production studios there.

This sounds fishy.
