Scarlett Charity Work

Scarlett Johansson may be one of the biggest movie stars of our time, but she's not too big to give back to the world around her!

The Oxfam Ambassador traveled to East Africa with the famine relief organization not that long ago and witnessed, first hand, the devastation threatening the lives of 13 million people throughout Kenya, Ethiopia, and Somalia.

To discuss those eye-opening numbers, the actress recently sat down with Arianna Huffington for the December issue of Interview magazine, saying:

Arianna Huffington Gets Sued…Again

Filed under: Legal MattersMedia Minute

arianna huffington gets sued again

She is NOT making many friends lately.

Last month, we learned that bloggers were filing a class action lawsuit against AOL & Huffington Post, because the HuffPost contributing writers feel that they should receive fair compensation for their content.

Now, Arianna Huffington is being sued by political consultants Peter Daou and James Boyce "for failing to acknowledge what they claim was their critical role in the creation of the Huffington Post."

They first filed their lawsuit back in November, but it looks like they've still got a ways to go with this fight.

There's a long history between these three, but if you watch the film The Social Network, you'll get the basic idea of what happened. LOLz.

After all these recent claims against Arianna Huffington, what do U think of the woman? Is she truly mistreating everybody? Or are these people just looking for payouts?

Internet Dramz! Bloggers Sue AOL And Huffington Post

bloggers file lawsuit against aol and huffington post

Bloggers are NOT happy with Arianna Huffington!

Today, Freelance journalist Jonathan Tasini filed a class action lawsuit against AOL & Huffington Post, on behalf of a group of bloggers who claim that HuffPost "mistreats those who enrich it with content."

After AOL acquired Huffington Post for $315 million last month, contributing writers feel that they should receive fair compensation for their content, and they're claiming "mistreatment" by Arianna Huffington.

Here's what the complaint against Huffington says:

"If it were not for the labor of Plaintiff and the thousands of unpaid Class members on and for TheHuffingtonPost.com…[the site] would not have been an attractive merger target and would have sold for at least $105 million less than the merger price of $315 million."

HuffPost is referring to the class action lawsuit as "completely baseless."

Who do U side with? Team Bloggers or Team HuffPost?

Arianna Huffington Refuses To Turn Off Her Blackberry On Airplane, Gets Into Fight With Passenger!

Filed under: Media Minute

huffington post founder gets into airplane dramz

Maybe this is why all the birds are dying…

On a recent United Express flight from Washington Dulles to New York, Arianna Huffington reportedly refused to turn off her BlackBerry.

53-year-old passenger Ellis Belodoff didn't appreciate Miss Huffington's divatude, and he reportedly confronted her and said the following:

"Hey, lady! Don't you speak English?"

Looks like the tables turned though, because the passenger broke the rules himself by getting out of his seat against flight crew instructions, and Port Authority Police of NY and NJ were alerted when the plane landed.

Here's what Port Authority spokeswoman Jen Friedberg had to say about it:

"The crew did alert our police when it looked like there was a fight brewing, but by the time they landed our police just spoke to them."

Apparently nobody got into trouble, but the two trouble-making passengers were given "a talking-to." LOLs.

The Barack Obama Comedy Hour

President Obama was Chuckles McGee at the 2010 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner on Saturday.

Celebs had nothing but nice words to say about the President's comedy routine. "He… how do you say it? … killed," said Arianna Huffington and Scarlett Johansson "thought he was hilarious. He has a really dry sense of humor."

Watch the vid and decide for yourself if he "killed it."
