no title

She went from My Life On The D List to life on the blacklist.

Kathy Griffin has been a Hollywood pariah for months following the release of publicity photos in which she held the severed head of Donald Trump in effigy.

For many, it was a bad joke taken too far, far enough even to get her investigated by the Secret Service.

Harvey Weinstein Lawyers Up In Anticipation Of Potentially Damaging Stories Brewing At The Times & New Yorker!

no title

Is one Hollywood's biggest producers about to take a big hit?

Harvey Weinstein has called on an army of attorneys and crisis managers over the past few weeks in anticipation of The New York Times publishing an upcoming story on his personal behavior.

Multiple sources familiar with the behind-the-scenes battle told The Hollywood Reporter that the Times has been calling dozens of current and former employees and associates of the executive as far back to his days running Miramax over two decades ago.

The research team is also said to have obtained internal HR documents during the investigation — though it's unclear just what the publication is planning to report.

Given Weinstein's unusually significant lawyering up, however, it's save to assume the story isn't a glowing review of Wind River, especially since the Times isn't the only media outlet currently assembling a piece on the mogul.

NBC News correspondent Ronan Farrow has also been digging into the exec's past for the last year, and is reportedly working with The New Yorker on a "lengthy" story.

Being no stranger to litigation, the owner of The Weinstein Company offered a cheeky response to the brewing media battle, telling THR:

no title

For someone who always seems like he just pounded five Red Bulls, Jake Paul is anything but woke.

The Vine star surged in popularity over the past few months thanks to a string of controversies, reminding everyone that douchebaggery is a legitimate platform when it comes to social media success.

Aside from annoying his neighbors into filing a class-action lawsuit against him, the 20-year-old made headlines for hurling racist comments at a Kazakhstani fan in a recent video, saying "it sounds like you're just going to blow someone up."

He explained:

Are you fucking kidding us with this??

Emmy Rossum, award-winning actress and star since her breakout role as the lead in The Phantom Of The Opera in 2004, was asked to audition in a damn bikini. For real.

Video: Early A-Lister Audition Tapes

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter as part of their comedy actress roundtable, the Shameless star recounted the horrible story of Hollywood sexism:

"As recently as a year ago, my agent called me and was like, 'I'm so embarrassed to make this call, but there's a big movie and they're going to offer it to you. They really love your work on the show. But the director wants you to come into his office in a bikini. There's no audition. That's all you have to do.'"

Red flag, girl.

The worst part? It wasn't even like she was playing a bikini-clad character in the movie! It was just the director's sexist whim! She eventually found out:
