Jon Peters Sexual Harassment Testimony Gets Scant Local Media Attention

It may just be the fact that this litigation is being argued in the heat of August, a notoriously vacation-happy media month. Still, it seems rather strange that at press time, only the Daily Breeze saw fit to summarize for SoCal readers the LA Superior Court testimony of a former personal assistant suing mega-producer Jon Peters for sexual harassment.

The August 12 allegations are a bigger deal beyond U.S. borders. Reuters Canada reported the story on Friday and today, the UK media is set to propagate the details thanks to a pick-up by the Daily Express and ContactMusic.com.

Charlie Sheen to Be Roasted in Los Angeles

Well, this is a no-brainer really. Comedy Central just announced that Charlie Sheen will be its next roastee. The show will tape live in LA on September 10 and be broadcast on the network on September 19th at 10 PM.

“You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while,” Sheen said in the release. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”

Previous roastees include Pamela Anderson and Bob Saget. Methinks this one will step it up a notch.

‘Conscious Parenting’ Pair Give Birth to Bamboo Magazine

It sounds like the kind of label that LA detractors love to mock – “conscious parenting advocates.” But that’s how Anni Daulter and Ashley Ess, co-founders of new quarterly digital mag Bamboo, like to present themselves.

For their first issue, the pair has wrangled some impressive participants. Pamela Anderson shares her views on home birthing; Ricki Lake talks about her documentary; and there’s also a profile of well-known midwife Ina May Gaskin. From the editors’ intro page:

Our premier issue, focusing on conscious pregnancy, is dear to our hearts. We have really tried to create our debut to be full of helpful, amazing information…

Playboy Will Publish Book of Greatest Covers

Playboy is hopping on the Sports Illustrated bandwagon, Folio reports, and will publish a “high-end coffee table book” of its best covers. The book will mine 300 of Playboy’s covers dating back to 1953, and will include a forward from Pamela Anderson. Should be riveting.

The book will be out in October of 2011.

Anderson, incidentally, will be appearing on Playboy’s cover for the eleventh time in the January 2011 issue. She’s 43 years old.

Film Threat Unveils 50 Most Frigid In Hollywood

heath.jpgFilm Threat, the snarky, biting answer to the film industry’s constant inhouse sniping, opens its 50 Most Frigid in Hollywood with Heath Ledger and the politically incorrect, bad taste query: “Why so deceased?”

Heath Ledger was an actor on the climb, albeit a rather subtle one, to the upper ranks of his profession. While “10 Things I Hate About You” and “A Knight’s Tale” weren’t necessarily Oscar-contenders, at least one of them was based on Shakespeare. And while playing second fiddle to Mel Gibson in “The Patriot” wasn’t a star-making turn, playing the skin flute with Jake Gyllenhaal in “Brokeback Mountain” and playing pseudo-Bob Dylan in “I’m Not There” were worthy of increased respect and recognition. Everything was pointing up and Ledger’s role as the Joker was the prize fruit he’d been climbing towards.

The pesky mag goes on to bemoan:

Carmen Electra: Mindless tits and ass have their place in society, but her body has been duping people into paying for shit cinema for far too long, and it’s not even as if folks are paying to see her naked! We’re not saying the only good Carmen Electra is a naked Carmen Electra (okay, maybe we are), but how bad is it when Pamela Anderson is making more informed, and memorable, career decisions?

Pacino and De Niro: “Everybody said how great it was that De Niro was getting together with Pacino again after teaming up in ‘Heat,’ conveniently forgetting that one of the things that made ‘Heat’ so effective was the fact they were only in one scene together…”

Katherine Heigl: “It’s so simple it’s cliche, but if she doesn’t have anything nice to say, and she wants to keep working, she might want to shut up…”

You said it, Film Threat…

How Will Batman’s Assault Hurt the Brand?

x40454508-22073906.jpgWithin seconds… seconds…of receiving the Batman news, we were flooded by e-mails from PR folks, therapists and life coaches about the implications of Christian Bale‘s assault arrest on the Bat brand. Surprisingly, nobody has written to speculate how the arrest will affect, say, Bale’s mom and sis.

Here’s one interesting missive:

Over Exposed: Sienna Miller/Isobelle Jade/Pam Anderson/Lindsay Lohan

Smiller10.jpg

Sienna Miller, starring in Hippie Hippie Shake in London, isn’t trying for any period authenticity, according to the photos here. Hippies were hairy all over, if you know what we mean.

Isobelle Jade launches a podcast, despite the cruel indifference of modeling agencies, Tyra Banks, and the rest of the world.

Pamela Anderson married Rick Saloman, which leads us to the question: Which one married up?

Lindsay Lohan is taking it day by day. One step at a time.

Kim Kardashian’s Sex Tape — No Shower Scene

kim-kardashian.jpg

Kim Kardashian’s sex tape sold for a million bucks to VIVID. There’s a semi-literate press release:

She’s the Daughter of O.J. Simpson’s Lawyer Robert Kardashian, the Stepdaughter of Olympic Gold Medallist Bruce Jenner and the Best Friend of Paris Hilton; He’s a Best-Selling Indie Hip Hop Recording Artist Who Has Been Linked with Lil’Kim and Most Recently Whitney Houston.

FBLA asked our main source of information about sex, Kevin Blatt, about the tape.(Would you rather that we learn about it in the street?)

I was shopped the KK video a month and a half ago when the video still contained what was described to me as Kim “singing in the rain” or involved with a “golden shower.” That scene from what I understand has since been edited out. However, my phone is still being “flooded” about this.

FBLA is relieved to learn this.

It is going to be a HUGE tape for VIVID video- and I wish them all of the best they are a fantastic company not too mention they made Pamela Anderson their biggest pornstar of all time. Believe me when I say that IMHO Vivid has sold more tapes than Jenna Jameson.

Amateur content is the wave of the future.

E!’s Love Ride Curse

justin_cameron_split.jpgThe reported Justin Timberlake-Cameron Diaz split — the first big one of 2007 — has celebrity media outlets in a tizzy. You know who else is in a tizzy? E! gossipist Michael Malkin, who appears to’ve been counting down the minutes since Britney dropped K-Fed to write this:

Perhaps Timberlake and Diaz are the latest victims of E!’s Love Ride curse. If Timberlake and Diaz are over, that means three of the eight couples featured in the new series have gone kaput. With Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock along with Britney Spears and Kevin Federline over, who’s left to worry about the curse? Brangelina, TomKat, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, and Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

Three of eight, huh? That’s not exactly Madden Curse territory.
