Princess Bride Star Cary Elwes Sued For Deadbeat Borrowing!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusiness Blitz

cary-elwes-lawsuit-credit-card-debt-wells-fargo-robin-hood-men-in-tights-princess-bride

We've heard of Robin Hood stealing from the rich to give to the poor, but borrowing from the creditors to buy antique furniture is news to us!!

OK, so we don't know precisely how aging actor Cary Elwes racked up almost $40K in credit card debt, but online antiquing is as good a guess as any!

Wells Fargo asked Cary to begin repaying the years-old debt back in 2010, but, according to the paperwork filed in an El Lay Superior court, he only forked over two-thousand before going rogue once again.

It's a sad irony that the man made famous by repeating his catch phrase "as you wish" in the cult-classic Princess Bride is being sued after failing to comply with a credit card company's reasonable demands.

An early court hearing is scheduled for March of next year.

Sharon Osbourne Vs. Rock Of Love Gal: Ot's Going To Court!

sharon osbourne vs megan hauserman

Way back in March 2009, we learned that Rock of Love Charm School contestant Megan Hauserman was planning on filing a lawsuit against Sharon Osbourne for battery, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress.

Now, jury selection has begun for the trial, and Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Abraham A. Khan has tried to convince both parties to settle, but to no avail.

Hauserman's lawyer Roderick L. Lindblom says he plans to show the jury video footage from Charm School as evidence.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"You watch this tape, it's pretty horrific. I want to put on evidence and ask a jury to award money."

At this point, it looks like Team Hauserman will be dropping the infliction of emotional distress claim, but they still have every intention of pushing forward with the battery and negligence claims.

Hauserman is claiming that Sharon "hit her, pulled her hair and scratched her," following their insult fest. Osbourne is countersuing because she claims Megan "assumed the risk of injury" by taking part in the show, and that she "breached her part of the agreement by suing."

In her countersuit, Osbourne says that she believes Megan Hauserman started the incident in order to get publicity.

We agree.

…Team Osbourne or Team Hauserman?

It's Official! Eva Longoria Files For Divorce

Filed under: Eva LongoriaLove LineSad Sad

eva longoria files for divorce

After a rollercoaster-like couple of days, the ride has come to an end.

Eva Longoria has filed divorce papers in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Still no definitive word on the reason for their divorce, but it seems pretty clear that it's a result of Tony's infidelity.

We're sad to hear all of this, but if Tony was being unfaithful, then it's certainly for the best.

Guess it goes to show that this can happen to anyone! We had a good feeling about this couple too!

We send our best wishes to Eva, in what we're sure must be a very difficult time.

Are U surprised by this announcement? Or did U see this one coming?

Felony Charges Likely To Be Dropped In Anna Nicole Smith Drug Trial

wenn-anna-nicole__opt__opt.jpg

And this case just keeps getting more and more complicated.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Perry is likely to dismiss various felony charges against Howard K. Stern and two doctors in the drug conspiracy trial over Anna Nicole Smith's death.

Although it's unclear which charges will be dropped, Perry claimed Monday that there was enough evidenced given in the prosecution's testimonies that support two of three conspiracy charges.

It all depends on whether or not the prosecution can prove that Smith was a drug addict, because according to a pain management expert's testimony, she was never diagnosed as such - instead, just a victim of chronic pain from a rib injury, and grief-stricken over her son's death.

All so tragic, and frankly, we're not sure what to think about this entire mess.

What do U think?? Should the charges get dropped??

Woman Claiming To Be Michael Jackson's Love Child Shut Down In Court!

mj-wenn__opt11__opt11__opt1.jpg

Of course she got shut down! She's obviously a crazy person!

Mocienne Petit Jackson has been running around for the past few months declaring that she is the love child of Michael Jackson and Diana Ross' sister, and even requested a court-ordered DNA test!

Luckily, the LA County Superior Court didn't have any patience for this bitch's crazy, and refused to grant her one!

Thank goodness! That nut wanted custody of his kids, too.

Hopefully this will be the last we hear about her - the Jackson family has ENOUGH drama!

Thoughts??

Casey's Court Case Extended

joaquin1e.jpg

Is this a good thing or a bad thing for Casey Affleck?

Obviously the man wants this to be over with, but an extension on the deadline for his case COULD mean that both parties are negotiating a settlement.

When asked to comment though, Affleck’s attorney said that no settlement negotiations are underway.

The new deadline for Casey's first accuser Amanda White to submit her opposition brief to Affleck’s motion to move the case from Los Angeles Superior Court to private arbitration is Sept 9th.

On Sept 10th, Affleck’s film I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix is scheduled for U.S. release. We’re sure Casey would LOVE to solve this thing before the film is released.

This case gets more messy by the day. What could possibly happen next? Is Joaquin Phoenix going to come forward and sue Casey for sexual harassment as well?
