'N SYNC: Shirt Happens
'N Sync won't be staging a reunion for their 20th anniversary, but they are rolling out a line of gear to mark the occasion.
According to Billboard, the group (which said "bye, bye, bye" back in 2002) is marketing a slew of items, from shirts to seasonal decor to headphones. Heck, there will even be an 'N Sync slot machine -- though you might not be able to get one of those for home use.
The guys, or some of them, at least, will also get together next year for the unveiling of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That ceremony will come 20 years after the release of their first single, “I Want You Back,” in March 1998.
TOM SIZEMORE: Accused of Molesting 11-Year-Old
Actor Tom Sizemore is the latest Hollywood figure facing sexual assault allegations.
According to story posted in The Hollywood Reporter, the bad-boy actor was kicked off a Utah movie set in 2003 after an 11-year-old actress told her mother that he had touched her genitals during a photo shoot. At the time, her parents declined to press charges and Sizemore eventually returned to the set. The actress, who has not been identified, is now 26 and has hired a lawyer to explore legal action against Sizemore.
The Hollywood Reporter says it interviewed dozens of people who were on the set and they all backed up the story. Sizemore, known best for his roles in Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down and Pearl Harbor, has had a troubled past including drug use and domestic violence convictions. Before now, he's never been accused of molestation.
LOUIS C.K.: Manager Denies Silencing Accusers
Louis C.K.’s former manager has taken some heat for allegedly trying to silence two of the comedian's accusers, but now Dave Becky is defending himself.
Comics Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, who claim C.K. exposed himself to them in 2002, said they “heard that Louis C.K.’s manager was upset that they were talking about [the misconduct] openly.”
But in a statement, Becky said it was all a misunderstanding. "I profoundly regret and am deeply sorry for not listening to and not understanding what happened to Dana and Julia. If I had, I would have taken this event as seriously as it deserved to be, and I would have confronted Louis, which would have been the right thing to do."
Becky said that he "interpreted" the story as being consensual and that since C.K. was married his "intent was to seek discretion to protect what I thought was a matter of infidelity." He insisted that "until last week, I knew only of this one isolated incident."
KYLIE JENNER: Throws "Pajama Party" Baby Shower
Kim Kardashian wasn't the only family member who threw a baby shower over the weekend.
A day after Kim's lavish bash, little sister Kylie Jenner had a shower at her Hidden Hills home.
According to People magazine, the theme of Kylie’s shower was “pajama party,” similar to the one Kim threw in 2015 for her second child, son Saint. Kylie kept the party off social media. She still hasn't announced her pregnancy to the public.
A source says Kylie had been planning the party for some time, while Kim decided early last week to throw her own shower on Saturday. An insider says, “It was a last-minute baby shower. Guests received an invitation earlier this week. It was a low-key celebration with family and close friends.”
ONE TREE HILL: Cast and Crew Allege Sexual Harassment
The cast and crew of One Tree Hill has come forward with sexual harassment accusations against the show's creator Mark Schwahn.
18 female cast and crew members, including stars Sophia Bush and Hilarie Burton, wrote a letter claiming they were subjected to “Schwahn’s behavior over the duration of the filming of One Tree Hill." It continues, "Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally. More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress. Many of us were put in uncomfortable positions and had to swiftly learn to fight back, sometimes physically, because it was made clear to us that the supervisors in the room were not the protectors they were supposed to be. Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatizing, to downright illegal. And a few of us were put in positions where we felt physically unsafe. More than one woman on our show had her career trajectory threatened."
The letter goes on to explain that they were told not to come froward with the allegations because it "would result in our show being canceled and hundreds of lovely, qualified, hard-working, and talented people losing their jobs." The letter was written in support of the show's writer, Audrey Wauchope, who tweeted over the weekend that she harassed by Mark Schwahn while working on the show. Schwahn has not yet responded to the allegations. (USA Today)
