Gross!

Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is in hot water again, this time because of an affidavit that revealed text messages sent between him and a former Subway franchise owner with whom he was sexually involved.

In the disgusting text messages, Fogle allegedly asks the woman to advertise herself on Craigslist (to sell sex!!), while also claiming he paid for sex with a 16-year-old girl.

What the what?! The woman says she shared the messages with Subway management (the company says they have no record of her complaint), but either way, the texts don't paint a good picture of Jared.

In one message, the weight loss wizard was trying to get the woman to involve her (at the time) underage cousin in a threesome back in May 2008:

Naomi Campbell is NOT having a happy Friday!

On July 31, Naomi was sentenced to 6 months in jail by an Italian court for scratching a photog's eye in 2009. Ouch, sounds painful!

According to the victim, he was photographing Campbell with her then boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, when the model struck him in the eye with her purse. While the photographer initially pressed charges, they were withdrawn after a behind the scenes settlement was reached. Unfortunately for the 45-year-old, a judge decided to proceed with the case due to the media attention and public fascination.

The fashionista's attorney said of the Friday ruling:

"We are appealing the ruling surrounding the 2009 incident. Due to the ongoing legal process, we cannot discuss the matter further at this time."

Sounds like Naomi's attorney has a lot of work to do! We'll keep you updated as the case progresses!

The Cosby Show Producer Opens Up Amidst The Bill Cosby Rape Allegations

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersSad SadSexBill CosbyControversy

Bill Cosby's former producer speaks out about separating 'The Cosby Show' from the controversy.

With allegations mounting against Bill Cosby, his former producer is hoping The Cosby Show's reputation won't crumble like that of its star.

Tom Werner is speaking out about the scandal surrounding the 78-year-old, who is accused of sexually assaulting — and sometimes drugging — over 40 women throughout the course of his career.

While the producer didn't want to comment on the comedian specifically, he did want to address what this could mean for the popular program.

Tom hopes that, in spite of the controversy surrounding its titular actor, The Cosby Show is still perceived with positivity, saying:

"The legacy of the show is obviously very important to me, because the show was a groundbreaking show and it portrayed a middle-class African American family in a very positive way. It had a lot of stories that resonated with families because people watched it together. Obviously it's a challenging time for Bill Cosby and a challenging time for the show, but I'm hoping that people will still be able to watch the show and identify with the Huxtables."

This is one of the first times the TV exec has spoken on the subject. He also released a statement about Bill back in November.

What do U think, Perezcious readers? Do the allegations against Bill change the way you think of the iconic Cosby Show? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Alleged Charleston Church Shooter Dylann Roof Has Pleaded Not Guilty To All Charges

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolence

Dylann Roof has pleaded not guilty.

The accused gunman in last month's tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina has pleaded not guilty to all federal charges.

According to authorities, Dylann Roof had confessed to shooting and killing nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 18.

The alleged murderer's lawyer admitted that the 21-year-old actually wanted to plead guilty to all 33 federal charges. However, the attorney said he couldn't allow his client to do so.

The counsel explained that he couldn't advise Dylann since the government is still deciding whether or not it will seek the death penalty for his accused crimes.

We hope that whatever the government decides, justice is served on behalf of all the victims and their families. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.
