Mel Gibson - Oksana Grigorieva

Yes I intentionally misspelled “pour” in the title.

This week on January 18, TMZ.com reported that Mel Gibson got hit with a $163,000 legal bill by the mother of his daughter, Lucia, Oksana Grigorieva’s lawyers. TMZ reported that attorney, Alan Shifman sent Gibson a bill to the tune of $163k for about one month of service in what is becoming a revolving doors of hearings with allegations flying.

Not to be out done RadarOnline.com covered an exclusive that L. A. county prosecutors are expected to charge Gibson with domestic violence following the allegation by Grigorieva that Gibson became violent on January 6, 2011. Grigorieva claims Gibson punched her twice in the head and broke two of her teeth as she held their one-year-old daughter Lucia during the January 6 domestic dispute

Reportedly criminal lawyer Blair Berk made her trip to the Los Angeles district attorneys office today to try to talk to the D. A. not to file charges and arrest Gibson on this recent volley of fire works between the two parents of Lucia. RadarOnline.com quotes unnamed sources that there was a reported two-hour meeting with Berk and Deputy District Attorney John Lynch at the Airport Courthouse.

Last week on January 12, after Gibson’s attorney leaked a story alleging that Oksana Grigorieva had been bribing a witness The accusation of bribing a witness was made by Mel Gibson’s legal team. That allegation was denied by Grigorieva’s attorneys.

RadarOnline.com article states that: “Law enforcement sources connected said before the meeting, that it was almost inevitable that Gibson, 55, would be charged. A charge of domestic violence/corporal injury involving a former cohabitant is looming for the Oscar-winning actor/director, sources said. It can be prosecuted as a felony or misdemeanor. If convicted of a felony, Mel Gibson could face up to four years in state prison; if convicted of a misdemeanor, he could face up to one year in county jail. While Berk made her bid, multiple sources, all with intimate knowledge of the situation, said the District Attorney had made its stunning decision in the last few days to prosecute the award-winning movie star.”

If Mel Gibson did in fact become violent and abusive with Grigorieva, and there is more evidence then just her testimony in the custody dispute, the district attorney will take another look at her allegations and if they decide to move on this Gibson will be hiring a whole new team of lawyers.

Like I said when it rains it pours in this ongoing saga of who did what to whom and on what day. Don’t you just love Hollywerid?

Gary Coleman ex Shannon Price pulls plug

Shannon Price, the former wife of Gary Coleman who was divorced from him on August 12, 2008 got to pull the plug? Many thought it was a little strange, but then again he fell while making her a snack and hit his head. The “Advanced Health Care Directive” stays in effect regardless of the marital status…what? I have dozens and dozens of DESPERATE EXES who could only wish upon a star for such an opportunity, girls can you imagine?

Utah Valley Regional Medical Center thought that Ms. Price and Gary were married! She was quoted as saying, “Why would I want to hurt my husband?“ Let me count the reasons. I love this one, “He would have died sooner or later,” this girl is funny and she is not trying to be. …

…I have listened to the interviews and recordings on TMZ and I am shocked that this woman was allowed to make any decisions, other than “would you like cheese on that?” I invite anyone to listen and tell me that I am wrong when I say the “lights are on but no one is home.” …The marriage and where he ended up in his final hours are nothing short of shocking from the stand point of did Ms. Price have the sense and heart to maybe take a little higher road and let time roll on for Gary Coleman?

Something I noticed over and over again as I listened to the interviews was “MONEY”, Yup, MONEY for this and MONEY for that, and I have no MONEY. My thoughts are that his estranged parents will step up and take care of this poor guy’s funeral….

NOTE FROM ROSE: The Hospital is investigating the incident saying Ms. Price represented her self as Mr. Coleman’s “current wife and next of kin”. However, the hospital also said that they don’t just take someone off of life support unless it is decision made by the doctors with the family giving the go head to do something like this. It might have been nice for the ex to wait until his parents and other close family members could have arrived from out of town.

Gary Coleman’s “family” states that they hope to have a memorial service in Salt Lake City Utah over the weekend, it was not stated in the AP article whether Ms. Price was also in charge of that as the ex-wife… OH wait, per MSNBC.com, as of today Mr. Coleman’s parents are in the anger stage and are suing for possession of the remains to take Coleman “home” to Illinois and they want answers and that would be like TODAY!!! I have to agree the 911 call is cold, her ex-husband is dying and Ms. Price said blood made her sick and she could not go into the room where her ex-husband Gary Coleman was laying to apply pressure to his head until paramedics arrived… YUK!!!!!

If you don’t want your ex to decide to pull the plug, make sure you change you medical proxy and/or Living Will. I have both just to be sure there is no potential argument with family members of what I do want to happen and when.

Larry King suffering through divorce number 8

…well folks, the “King of Softballs” and the “Sultan of Gas” is going to be up for grabs…Larry King has filed for divorce from his gorgeous much younger wife. He is stumbling into DIVORCE #8…Shawn Southwick has filed for divorce. Shawn is being represented by none other than Joe Mannis. It is reported that Larrreeeee is a very generous old person…better be, when Ol’ Joe sends a bill he wants to be paid.

There has been much ado about Shawn’s sister, Shannon Engemann, purportedly banging old Larreeee… …Shannon states that Lareeee is “like a father to me”…Hmmm, maybe she too is not in touch with her faculties, more like GrandF’nfather sweetie!

She was quoted on TMZ that “I have a date tonight and I am not going to worry about it.” I was wondering if it might be Tony Curtis. Larry’s lawyer Susan Carter is hoping that the divorce is “amicable,“ that is likely to happen about the time his show ever becomes a hit again. However in the end…he is still a real rich old guy.

Be sure while you are at Desperate Exes.com you browse through the other articles, John J. Nazarian has some interesting ones on Divorces and Divorce lawyers in Hollywood.

Tiger Woods and Thirteen Agonizing minutes

The stock market stopped for a tad over thirteen (13) minutes as did the world compliments of the U. S. 24/7 as I love to describe them, “Infotainment News” and on Friday even what most of us consider “Real News”; with thousands of people watching just to hang on every word of Tiger Woods on Friday, February 19, 2010. One that had been advertised, and yes I do mean advertised, as in the advertising community paid a lot of money for plugs a head of this speech and for spots after this speech. It is no accident that Nike bought the advertising spot directly after the speech with “The Jungle Song” being played.

I was looking through CNN and MSNBC on Friday morning to just get my daily dose of what is going on in the world. I had missed the “original” thirteen minutes agonizing speech by Tiger Woods, however I did NOT miss the hour by hour analysis of body language experts, twelve steps experts in fact I half expected Woods to apologize to the Hollywood Madam whose newest claim to fame is getting trash shows and rags to continue to quote her about Tiger Woods and ALL of the money she has made. Have her “handlers” a/k/a federal prosecutors and probation officers told her that for the six months while writing her tell all book and doing a tad of house arrest with that cute little ankle bracelet that she might want to keep a LOW profile; but then my take is that would be impossible for her.

However, I regress, what do I know about Tiger Woods let me count the things since I am not a golfer or golf fan, the game to me looks like a slow drip of molasses with about that much excitement so I am perhaps skewed in my take on this.

1. Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer EVER.

2. Because of this he is the richest golfer EVER.

3. Because of this he has a Godzilla amount of Endorsements.

4. Because of those paid endorsements he makes even More Money.

That is about all I knew and all I needed to know about Tiger Woods until the replay and dissection of his thirteen minutes “I have sinned” speech, (flash back to Jimmy Swaggart’s crying confession of having sex with prostitutes. Of course he was neither rich nor talented except to take little old ladies money for his evangelism. DISCLAIMER: I BELIEVE IN GOD SO DON’T GO THERE, I DON’T BELIEVE IN USING THAT FAITH TO CASH IN.) Swaggart’s motivation was trying to right himself in time to not lose too much money. However, it was that repeat performance with pictures to show there was no change that did him in and no amount of crocodile tears could save him. (I could add thank God here but won’t)

So flipping through a twelve step program of things to do I see Woods is up to a combination of eight (8) and nine (9). Eight being: “Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.” With nine (9) being; “Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.”

Now did Tiger Wood’s lust to spend money and lavish himself with things considered taboo to a clean cut all American, trust your children to follow me, harm me? Nope his wife, his children, his mother, a few friends, the boy scouts and his sponsors, probably. Did it harm me that he went on international television to say he had amends to make and he had harmed people. That was a personal choice, in my opinion, that neither helped nor hurt him, however the “24/7 infotainment news world” got their pound of flesh to dissect for a whole news cycle so he sold advertisements for them, but did I need to hear that, nope.

Look he could have said what he needed to say, if he in fact needed to say anything as follows, in my opinion:

1. I am the best golfer to ever play the game.

2. I made millions in endorsements and money from championships.

3. With money comes, greedy people that want part of that money and will cater to all of your fantasies.

4. I gave into those fantasies and all that does is make me one more imperfect person and perhaps one headed to divorce court.

5. I am no hero, haven’t any of you learned yet to put an imaginary “icon” on a pedestal is going to cause that icon to show they have clay feet? Now he probably should have been saying that to parents and children all along during his career. History has taught us when you put the rich, famous, talented people on pedestals, gravity is always going to win and they will fall off.

6. Leave my wife, my kids and my mother alone, geesh people isn’t there better ways to spend your time then dissecting and stalking my family? (he did say that)

7. I am not going to address the gossip of the extent of my indiscretions that is between my family and me and perhaps my sponsors. (At least he did say that).

If he wanted to throw in that there was no domestic violence and his wife had not chased him with a nine iron down his home driveway, which frankly I kind of liked the idea of a beautiful woman chasing a cheating husband down the drive, that was his choice. So if that did not happen then Tiger Woods should have told us he was drunk, mad, sped away from a fight with his wife and crashed. Got it? That is all we needed to know, in fact we were not “entitled” to even that.

He could have done that in less than five minutes, yet we were all subjected to watching a very private person, who had lied along the way in making all that money, agonized over making amends and admitting his sins. Then we spent the rest of the day having pundits, professional psychologists, twelve step advisers and even body language experts tell us what part was real, what was not and what is next for the Woods’ brand.

Which by the way isn’t there more serious news to cover in the world then Tiger Woods?

We now know he is paying a LOT of money to a sex rehabilitation clinic and was going back to spend a LOT more money there. The Google alerts today say this sex clinic has had to put up a temporary privacy fence. I wonder if that fee was added to Tiger’s bill? I am willing to bet the people who run that inpatient clinic and get a LOT of money from Tiger Woods, high five Woods on his return with WOW man did you do good! You only have (fill in the number of weeks here they say he needs) while of course making a LOT more money from Tiger Woods. It is kind of like hookers charge but for now in a different direction for the rich and famous. I kind of hope Woods went to bed on Saturday night back at the rehab center with a thought of F-U, I feel worse not better and ya’ll made me do a super advanced advertising thirteen minute “I have Sinned” bullshit speech. But hey if it will keep my sponsors then it was a good business decision.

Tiger, let that be the only pound of flesh you hand the world of “24/7 infotainment news”. Their only purpose is to destroy people in search of those advertising dollars. Do what you have to do to rehabilitate your image so the money keeps coming in. However if I was you, one day remind all of these people you can do two things that almost none of them can do: 1. Be the greatest golfer of all time and 2. Make more money then most of them can dream about on Christmas Eve when lollipops of greed dance through their heads.

So have we had enough of Tiger Woods and the guy can get on with his life NOPE, there is just too much money to make in following this imperfect human being. It appears to me his main sin was demanding to keep his personal life very private. I hope he has learned that in doing that, which he was entitled to do, but with an imperfect life he opened the flood gates of man eating “24/7 infotainment”. Learn and move on with money and fame comes that occasional pound of flesh the public via “Infotainment 24/7 news cycles demands”. It is just the way of life these days. I do have to say I like how Tiger’s wife Elvin has handled this. Back to the sex clinic for Tiger but Elin will be taking the credit cards to go shopping and in a very public way. You got to love the way betrayed wives get to decide how much money it is going to cost those wayward husband to get out of the proverbial dog house.

YES THIS IS AN EDITORIAL NOT BASED ON FACTUAL INFORMATION BUT MY OWN THOUGHTS ON THE FIASCO THAT IS SURROUNDING TIGER WOODS.

Wholesome Madam Michelle Braun

When Michelle Braun graced Rose Speaks.com the day of her sentencing, one of the things she posted was she wasn’t worried about making more money that is always something easy to do if you are smart, like her.

Braun pled guilty to one count of money laundering and one count of transporting a woman across state lines for prostitution. Braun is quick to say she WAS NOT convicted of anything because the federal government had nothing to convict her on. So why did Braun plead guilty and get six (6) months of house arrest and three (3) years of probation. It is simple Braun said she took a bullet for everyone, family members, Johns and her girls, OH REALLY???

Braun was quick to start her P. R. campaign with the announcement of a tell all book to a “news” infotainment gossip rag in New York that she was taking Hugh Hefner and the Playboy empire on face to face. Of course this is shortly after settling a copyright suit with Playboy and Hefner out of court. What is that saying; “hell has no fury like a woman climbing back up to the top”? Braun is taking on Playboy’s image of the wholesome girl next door turned Playboy centerfold vowing to debunk that myth. I did not know that is how Playboy billed their centerfolds, they don’t look like most girls next door in my world, they are sexual air brushed hot nudes, made to make men have wonderful fantasies. Like sugarplums at Christmas dance through the heads of children, Playboy plays to the fantasies of adults. However, Michelle Braun is to do a tell all book about how she always had one girl inside the world of Hefner’s house to “recruit” for her yearly multimillion dollar business. Braun is claiming that at one time six of the seven women living at the Playboy Mansion worked for Braun behind Hefner’s back. Why take on Hugh Hefner and the Playboy Empire, easy it gets her that face time she desires and it keeps her busy for the next six months.

Then entered Tiger Woods and the around the clock infotainment coverage, one New York rag had Tiger on the front page for 25 straight days and will have him on the cover through the end of the year no doubt. Michelle Braun sprung to get into that, after all famous man, lots of money, beautiful girls, of course that would include Braun wouldn’t it? She appeared on every show that she could get with the bracelet on her ankle and from her Florida home. You know that is what house arrest consists of no matter how nice the home or the number of shows willing to do a video feed from her confining quarters. Her home sweet home for the next five months, we saw show after show featuring her confessions of how much Woods spent per night with her prostitutes and which ones as they were uncovered worked for her stable. You have to give her credit she is her own best promoter in the world of needing that P. R. However one site says this “might not be true”, if so expect Marty Singer, Hollywood heavy weight lawyer to ask for those IRS 1099 forms.

My question whom did she take that bullet for? She is taking on Hugh Hefner, the Playboy Empire and now Tiger Woods. In the Woods’ sensational infotainment news Braun has threatened to release 1099 IRS forms on the girls who say they never worked for her. We got to see that “confession” by Braun during a few prime time coverage shows and a lot of infotainment shows like Geraldo on Fox.

Is there anymore empires, rich men or beautiful women who need to worry about whether or not they are on her list of “secrets to keep”. I bet that the “ex-Madam’s” reemergence on to the stage of a “Madam” turned author will prove to be interesting to say the least. As she continues to refer to them as “her girls” and at the expense of all of those people she claims she took the bullet for, by the way who did she take a bullet for? Why didn’t the feds keep those 1099 IRS forms? One could guess that was an early Christmas present to the “Madam” from the feds. After all a girl has to work.

We are lucky to have the two pictures merged with this article. The one on the left is of the flat chest-ed girl with a tad long nose who really does look like the girl next door. This is side by side of the voluptuous huge breasted, hour glass figure that comes with the high price payments of plastic surgery, should she send out thank-you cards to those who gave her those boobs? Braun had a message for all, the day of her sentencing especially to all of her fans on her Face Book; note the finger that perhaps was the first hint she was out for money and blood. Ah the woman scorned who will end up in the tell all book who all did she offer up to the book publishers to sell her idea? One thing is for sure Braun does not intend to stay mum as Heidi Fleiss the last Hollywood Madam did for her girls and more important the rich and powerful men her business served.

We shall wait and see what sweet tidbits this “Hollywood Madam” called Michelle Braun offers up. Never fear Rose Speaks.com will continue with the coverage of the plight, the journey, the fall only to rise again if she has her way called the millionaire Madam.

iger Woods fodder for infotainment

Welcome to the 24/7 of infotainment passed off as news Tiger Woods. Have any of you done a google search of Tiger Woods today, what about a family privacy is now up for grabs? I could not believe the main stream media covering this with questions, and then you get to infotainment and last out and out horrid jokes sites, even a new “Spirit Airs” commercial based on Woods.

In a statement released on his website in part Tiger Woods said; “Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.”

Tiger Woods is a great athlete, and now is surrounded by “tabloid scrutiny” and sadly main stream news like MSNBC and CNN, however wait until the television 24/7 infotainment hits Mr. Wood and his family.

It appears in media when asked L. Lin Wood is giving Tiger Wood some free advice like on November 30, in Dallas News Wood said; ““It’s a vicious cycle to find yourself in,” said L. Lin Wood, a nationally known trial attorney and First Amendment expert.

“When a media frenzy descends upon you, it’s difficult sometimes to make the right decision.”

Wood’s clients have included John and Patsy Ramsey, former U.S. Rep. Gary Condit and Richard Jewell, the security guard wrongly implicated in the Atlanta Olympic bombing.

In attorney Wood’s opinion, golfer Woods doesn’t owe the public any more than what little he has said so far. “

On December 1, Mr. L. Lin Wood in the NHBR said” But the same forces that ignite the story might also cause it to burn out quickly, said L. Lin Wood, an Atlanta attorney who has counseled high-profile clients.

Barring any new allegations, Wood sees coverage of the Woods story dying down in a few weeks, perhaps flaring briefly the next time Woods appears in public, then fading away. The attorney disagrees with marketers who say Woods needs to face reporters.

“To me, it would be undignified for someone like Tiger Woods,” he said. “And if you start to feed the media frenzy, it’s just going to get bigger and probably last longer.”

As the infotainment passed off as news continue to swallow up Tiger Woods and is depriving him of the privacy he is begging for while for now actually appearing he is becoming a recluse in his own home with media trucks lining the streets. Today in USA Today Lin Wood again offered Tiger Wood some advice; “ L. Lin Wood understands that full extent, [of Tiger Woods statement on the Tigerwoods.com site],. He is a lawyer in Atlanta who has extensive experience representing clients caught in media maelstroms.

“You’ve got two choices, as a practical matter” in cases like this, Wood said. “You go public and answer all the questions — in other words, tell all. Or you make the choice to treat it as a private matter and refuse to discuss publicly the issues involving his relationship with his wife and obviously these new accusations of infidelity or sexual misconduct.

“I think he has made the right decision. I do not think the issues that are now part of the media firestorm are issues that merit public discussion. … And I think going forward, Tiger should be Tiger (and not discuss) issues that do not relate to his public status or his professional endeavors.”

However on TV and in statements to the media most PR firms are saying basically “Tiger Woods should hire us and let us handle the ever growing media storm by releasing the information to the public infotainment feeding frenzy”.

So in your opining if Tiger Woods finds himself needing some help in the next days or weeks, would it be better to hire a media expert to release those “facts for you” or someone like L. Lin Wood to guarantee Woods and his family privacy is reinforced?

Mark Geragos the newest odd Couple of Hollywood Justice Perhaps

…Eric Safire, Esq. was one of the best criminal defense attorneys in the state. Back in the day I would meet Eric at the trunk of his Mercedes and he would brief me on what he needed. Today Mr. Safire works out of the “Safire Building” …Eric took me aside and said, “Look, you get into trouble, I can get you off and it is no big deal.” But, Mr. Safire further explained to me, if he got into trouble, he could loose his right to practice law — his “ticket” aka a “bar card.” Along with surrounding myself with good people, I always remembered that very sound advice…and have treaded cautiously. Most of the people I work with are off-duty and retired police officers — that helps, right “Bobby” and “Bill”?

In yesterday’s Los Angeles Times a headline caught my eye, “Private investigator pleads no contest.” Well, Mr. Bradley G. Miller, the former private investigator …I was curious as I had always associated Mr. Miller as being one of Mark Geragos’s guys …The AP is reporting Geragos has long worked with Miller, including during Geragos’ unsuccessful defense of the little shop lifter Winona Ryder…

Nazarian and Associates is very proud to say that we have never ever associated with Gagagosh and for myself, I would sooner eat lunch with Harvey Levin than to work with anyone in Gagagosh’s office. Funny, TMZ.com was reporting that one of Gagagosh’s P.I.s (”big name” in this town, it was reported) is working on Nicole Richie’s car wreck case…

…I will never understand, being in a town with Adam Braun, Harland Braun, Thomas Mesereau and Barry Tarlow. These names are royalty in the world of defense. Is it the face time he gets on “Geraldo” or on TMZ? and how TMZ handles Gagagosh makes one wonder what is that relationship about…..funny stuff….

Gagagosh also represented Michael Jackson before Michael smelled the coffee burning and went to a real defense attorney, one of the best criminal defense attorneys in Southern California, Thomas Mesereau. It is reported that Mr. Mesereau has had to file a $341,000 claim against Mr. Jackson’s estate for his fees. What? Michael Jackson “stiffed” someone? Am I surprised? LMAO… Many years ago I was contacted to handle a “de-bugging” at the Neverland Ranch, all was going very well till I asked for money to be placed into an escrow account and to have my good friend Robert M. Cohen handle all the legal ends of the transaction. I got silence first and then the “that will be fine, we will be in contact in a few days” line (that is like verbal air kisses in this town).

…You know it is like thin ice, you see some fat guy waddling across and all is good, you take two steps and you go through the ice and you find yourself up to your knees…go figure.

Note: Geragos is not accused of involvement in the alleged conspiracy or payoff that his private investigator was involved with and plead to.

There is so much more to read on this article and as always the unique take on Desperate Exes.com of John J. Nazarian P. I. Extraordinaire to the rich and famous. Mr. Nazarian is a very nice man, but you better be both rich and famous to afford him. Anyway take a look at his take on the Geragos – Miller connection and while there browse around at some of his other often funny but always calling him as he sees them in the town we call Hollyweird.
