Allred represents Danny Ramos, the videographer/pap who sued West for alleging assault, battery, negligence and violation of civil rights. While speaking with RadarOnline.com , Allred said, Mr. West made it clear that he thinks that he has the right to attack anyone that antagonizes him by asking him a question that he does not like. He thinks that paparazzi are fair game. She added, aIn his televised appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show he sent a message that anyone that crosses him is not safe and that no one should forget that he is from Chicago. We have a message to you Mr. West in response. You will be held accountable for your actions both in the criminal justice system and in the civil justice system. This response from Allred was directly following Wests visit to Kimmel. aYour remarks are shameful and add further insult to the injuries that you inflicted upon my client.a She added: aYou say that you bring ajoy to the worlda. I say you disgrace your profession and bring shame to your hometown of Chicago when you make reference to being from Chicago as some sort of threat.a On July 19, West was seen on camera wresting Ramos to the ground at LAX. Court proceedings were held this week. Although the request was denied, the Los Angeles City Attorney asked for the judge to order West to attend anger management classes.The arraignment was postponed until November 7.
Witches casting a spell over Hollywood
Sixties sitcom “Bewitched” lasted long enough to introduce us to three generations of fabulous witches: supernatural housewife Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery, left), her sly mother, Endora (Agnes Moorehead), and the littlest witch in the Stephens family, Tabitha (Erin Murphy). The hijinks on “Bewitched” are classic, and we still actively wish we could pull off tricks with just a wiggle of the nose. We didn’t dig Wilhelmina Witchiepoo’s incessant attempts to steal away Jimmy’s talking flute, Freddy, but we did think the “H.R. Pufnstuf” (1969-70) character had a wicked ride with the Vroom Broom. Witchiepoo is shown with NFL great Joe Namath. In 1987, Cher, left, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer gifted us with a darkly comic adaptation of John Updike’s “The Witches of Eastwick.” As three single women unaware of their own power, they accidentally lure the devil right into their idyllic town. We have to agree with Angelina Jolie that it’s about time Maleficent, the “mistress of all evil” in “Sleeping Beauty,” tells her side of the story. In the 2014 film, Jolie will portray the evil sorceress and reveal why she was so hellbent on cursing Princess Aurora. Let’s count the ways 1989’s “Teen Witch” won us over: First, there’s the rapping “Top That” scene , followed by the final dance , and the fact that she used her powers in pretty much the exact same ways we would have at 16. Better still: Robyn Lively re-created her “Teen Witch” dance moves for her younger sister Blake when the “Gossip Girl” actress married Ryan Reynolds. There’s a reason Anjelica Huston’s fearsome character was known as the “Grand High Witch” in the 1990 adaptation of Roald Dahl’s “The Witches.” Not only was she powerful and absolutely horrifying underneath the wig and makeup , she also had a ruthless wit.
