KIM KARDASHIAN: North Takes Topless Photo of Her Mother
Kim Kardashian's latest topless photo has come under fire because of the photographer.
Though she's the queen of the selfie, Kim had her four-year-old daughter North Westsnap the racy pic -- and the internet isn't having it.
In the shot, Kim wears an open bra and covers her breast with her hands. Mom and daughter can be seen in the mirror.
Here's what same haters are saying:
- "I wonder how many people would get social services called on them if this was anyone else but Kim K?? This is subpar parenting."
- "Love Kim but why would you have your baby girl take pics of you taking your shirt / bra off. It’s a little wrong."
- "So is this what you’re teaching your daughter to do and look up to ? @kimkardashian damn shame."
Other people defended the reality star. One fan wrote, “How is this bad? My mom used to change in front of me all the time. It’s normal with moms and daughters, at least where I’m from. Maybe North was just playing with the camera when Kim was changing. It’s normal, y’all. Stop reaching.”
QUENTIN TARANTINO: Apologizes to Roman Polanski Rape Victim
Quentin Tarantino has apologized for comments he made about Roman Polanski's underage rape victim in an old radio interview.
In the statement, the Kill Bill director said, "I want to publicly apologize to Samantha Geimer for my cavalier remarks on speculating about her and the crime that was committed against her. Fifteen years later, I realize how wrong I was. Ms. Geimer WAS raped by Roman Polanski. When Howard [Stern] brought up Polanski, I incorrectly played devil’s advocate in the debate for the sake of being provocative. I didn't take Ms. Geimer's feelings into consideration and for that I am truly sorry ... So, Ms. Geimer, I was ignorant, and insensitive, and above all, incorrect."
In the 2003 interview, Tarantino described Geimer as a "party girl" who "wanted to have it and dated" the 42-year-old Polanski. "He didn't rape a 13-year-old," Tarantino said. "He had sex with a minor. That's not rape."
The interview surfaced after Uma Thurman accused Tarantino of negligence on the set of Kill Bill in a New York Times article.
SCOTT BAIO: Second Charles in Charge Star Claims Abuse
Nicole Eggert isn't the only Charles in Charge star accusing Scott Baio of bad behavior. Alexander Polinsky, who played her little brother Adam, says the actor physically abused him on the set of the '80s sitcom. He also confirms that Baio abused Eggert when she was underage.
While Eggert appeared on The Talk Thursday, host Sara Gilbert read an emotional statement from Polinksy. In the letter, he said, “Working on the set of Charles in Chargefrom age 11 to 15 was no picnic, it was a toxic environment. I witnessed Scott Baio acting inappropriately towards Nicole Eggert during my first year of working on the show. I walked in on them together behind the set. Nicole was on Scott’s lap and he did not appreciate my intrusion. He yelled at me and called me various homophobic slurs.”
He added, “Growing up on the show I received regular verbal attacks, mental abuse and I also suffered a physical assault at the hands of Scott Baio. There is no excuse for his behavior. It is abhorrent.”
Polinksy also backed up Eggert when she filed her police report against Baio earlier this week.

"Seeing her name in headlines again and again, as part of one person’s attempt to gain more attention for her personal cause, along with Harvey’s desperate attempt to vindicate himself, was devastating for her.
