Like you, we were SHOCKED to hear that Bijou Phillips suddenly filed for divorce from her convicted rapist husband, Danny Masterson! Here’s what happened: Days ago, we told you that she was standing by her man and planned to prove it by taking his last name. Lawyers and Danny immediately advised her to file for divorce instead. Bijou still loves her husband, but agreed to file for divorce BECAUSE Danny is facing millions of dollars in civil lawsuits now that he’s convicted of rape. Filing for divorce will protect their sprawling Santa Ynez ranch in Santa Barbara county. The consensus was that the only way Bijou can shield herself and their young daughter from financial ruin was to file. Long story short, it doesn’t mean she’s not gonna stand by him, it just means she’s gonna do it while divorced!

Strikes by the Writer’s Guild and SAG/AFTRA affected this years San Diego Comic-con and many of the events were canceled. Among them was the panel for That 70’s Show because actors could not participate. However, there was a display for the planned 25th anniversary of the show that could still be seen outside the hall. According to The Underground Bunker, the photo featured the entire cast EXCEPT for Danny Masterson. He had been ERASED. No doubt because DESPITE Scientology’s EXTREME efforts to protect him, he was convicted of two counts of forcible rape and he faces 30 years to life in prison. On September 7 he will be sentenced by the female judge. For now, he is living at Men’s Central Jail in LA.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City criminal Jen Shah was just sentenced to 6 1/2 years in prison for her wire fraud case, PLUS she’s on the hook to pay approximately $9 million in restitution to her victims. She has until February 17 to surrender, so she’s hoping to get a jump start on paying back her victims by shopping around a no holds barred tell-all interview before she turns herself in. According to an insider at Bravo, THAT’S the reason Jen unexpectedly skipped the recent season 3 reunion – she wants to sell her last interview to the highest bidder. Really. Whatever she earns for the sit down (she claims) will go to her restitution, and since she’s willing to reveal EVERYTHING, she’s hoping to make a noticeable dent in her debt.
Since Hilary Swank rarely plays a pretty girl in her movies, many people assume she’s short-changed in the looks department. The “Conviction” star is very plausible playing “average” women – maybe that’s why her characters are so believable. But she’s not really all that “average” as you can see by these rare lingerie pin-ups of Hilary.
If you have even an inkling that you might want to see “Conviction” with Hilary Swank, Sam Rockwell, and Juliette Lewis, do NOT watch any TV shows discussing the movie or read reviews. The LESS you know about it, the better. There are certain plot surprises and subtleties that have been revealed as the movie is publicized, and it’s a shame! All you need to know is that the story is true and fascinating and the actors are well chosen. We were lucky to see the movie before we knew anything about it and it was captivating and surprising.
