Teen Mom Served!

Filed under: MTVLegal MattersReality TV

And so it begins!

As we've mentioned before, police are investigating Teen Mom star Amber Portwood for allegedly beating on her ex-fiance and baby daddy Gary Shirley.

And by allegedly, we're talking about the now infamous confrontation caught on tape and shown on air for everyone to see and that sparked the investigation to begin with.

The cops are demanding to see what else might have happened during the fight, slapping MTV with a subpoena to surrender any and all video from that day of filming.

In the filing, given to MTV producers on Monday, police ask for “any and all records reference raw television or video media footage regarding the MTV production(s) of Teen Mom which depict all or potentially all physically violent encounters between Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley, in addition to any raw footage of the Reunion Shows in Portwood and Shirley discuss any such violent encounters on the show Teen Mom, either 'aired' or 'unaired'”.

A spokesman for the department reports that MTV is being "very cooperative" with officials and will have 30 days to hand over everything they have. However, we hear MTV has already given the tapes over to their attorney to review, so the ball is already rolling.

Things don't look too good for Amber. We actually kind of hope MTV is getting all of this on film. Maybe seeing the prospect of one of these Teen Mom's going to jail will help de-glamorize the series a bit for other teens.

All the police need is a little more evidence and then they are good to go!

Police in Anderson, Indiana are in the middle of a domestic violence investigation against Teen Mom star Amber Portwood. On an infamous episode of the show, Amber is see mercilessly beating on her boyfriend and baby daddy Gary Shirley during a crazed rant.

To really clinch the case, law enforcement officials have contact MTV to provide them with the full, unedited footage of the fight so that they can have indisputable evidence against her. Once they have that, then there's no stopping them. An officer from the sheriff's department explains:

"We are drafting and sending the subpoena to MTV to get the unedited version of their film. We want to compare that with what we already have — and hopefully it will put us closer to putting a point on this investigation."

As of now, the police are planning on issing a subpoena this week.

We don't see how she'll be able to wriggle her way out of this! The footage is there! There's no denying she went off on him and in front of her baby no less.

Maybe this will force some maturity on her.

Naomi Slams Blood Diamond Prosecutors

Filed under: Legal MattersNaomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell is finally speaking out about testifying at Charles Taylor's war crimes trial last month.

The supermodel, who's still pissed about being subpoenaed, thinks the only reason prosecutors wanted her their was to get the case some publicity.

She told Sky News:

What you need to understand - I wasn't on trial - I was forced through a subpoena to testify. Nothing to do with me. This trial has been going on for how many years? No one cared to write about it. You bring Naomi Campbell to the stand, the whole world knows. So as far as I was concerned I was used as a scapegoat.

Naomi said she doesn't condone what the former Liberian president did, but added:

"I do not see why I have to sit here and hear around everywhere I go in the world that this was like my trial. I was a witness. I told and remembered what I could to my ability and it was 13 years ago."

Oh cry us a river.

If she just agreed to go in the first place without being summoned, it probably wouldn't have been that big of deal.

Octo-Mom’s Fertility Doctor’s Back Against The Wall

Filed under: Baby BlabberOcto-Mom

Michael Kamrava, the doctor who treated Octo-Mom (Nadya Suleman) has subpoenaed two rival fertility clinics who he claims treated Nadya as well. This recent backlash from the doctor comes in the midst of his fight to keep his medical license in California, which he could lose over accusations of “gross negligence.”

In other words, the medical board in California didn’t like it when he stuck eight babies in one lady.

Kamrava claims that two other fertility clinics treated Octo-Mom at the same time he was doing so, which was the cause of her excessive pregnancies. The other clinics are denying the claims and say they don’t have any records of her being there. Kamrava thinks they’re lying.

This entire Octo-Mom situation is just one big ball of stupid.

We hope Naomi Campbell was restrained when she got this news!

Prosecutors involved in the the war crimes trial of the former Liberian President Charles Taylor have asked judges to subpoena the diva supermodel so she can testify.

This comes on the heels of modeling agent Carole White saying in a statement that she saw several men give Naomi a "half dozen" uncut diamonds.

Along with subpoenaing Campbell, the prosecutors have requested that the judges call both White and Mia Farrow, who also claimed Naomi received a blood diamond, as witnesses.

Things are about to get juicy!

ABC Wants To Settle With Nicollette Out Of Court!

dh__optjb1.jpg

This sounds pretty shady to us!

ABC execs are reportedly willing to give Nicollette Sheridan what they're calling a "peace package" to sway her from going forward with her $20 million wrongful termination lawsuit against her Desperate Housewives boss, Marc Cherry!

Apparently, Sheridan's lawyers have made it clear that they will subpoena the cast and crew of the hit series to give evidence in favor of the actress if the case does go to court, and the network desperately does not want that to happen!

We wonder why! What are you guys afraid will come out if people have to testify under oath?

According to a source:

"Our legal team is working to get both sides together to see if they can help ­broker a compromise. This doesn't mean that anyone is going to hand Nicollette $20 million to drop her action and walk away but there are various incentives that might be put on the table."

What do U think?? Will Nicollette settle or is this only going to get uglier in court??
