Sex Tapes: There Ought To Be A Law

Heidi Montag Confirms Existence Of Lauren Conrad Sex Tape

Heidi Montag, one of the stars of MTV’s reality show The Hills, confirmed on television last night that there is a sex tape featuring her co-star Lauren Conrad.

Montag stated, Conrad’s ex-boyfriend, the N-word using, drug abusing Jason Wahler, was trying to sell it. This has become a trend that needs to stop. It’s not cute and you’re turning yourself into something you and your children will regret down the road.

While it is a very serious crime to film someone without their permission in places and situations where privacy is to be expected, such as in a home, public bathroom or hotel room, to name a few, consensually making a sex tape with another person is not illegal.

However, there should be a law that a person cannot sell, show or disseminate in any fashion, a sex tape or nude photos, without the consent of the other party. People should face jail time for doing that. It would stem the flow of all these sex tapes coming out. A better solution would be to not make them.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag insist Lauren Conrad sex tape existed

While Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt never actually saw the alleged sex tape featuring The Hills Lauren Conrad and her ex-beau Jason Wahler, they insist that it did in fact exist at one point.

“It was not a rumor, that’s all I have to say,” said Montag during a pre-taped appearance on Tuesday’s broadcast of the syndicated The Tyra Banks Show. “From what I heard from confirmed sources is that her ex-boyfriend was going around trying to sell it.”

“The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of McCain”

April 29, 2008 Comments off

Rampant Republicanism

Does MTV Know (LOL)

April 29. 2008

Reality TV star Lauren Conrad a McCain supporter

A few weeks ago, Heidi Montag from MTV’s reality show “The Hills” told the public she is voting for Republican candidate John McCain in this year’s election.

This week, New York Magazine has stated Montag’s co-star Lauren Conrad is also a Republican batting for John McCain. Hey, who knew P.O.W.s were so fashionable. Just kidding.

It’s a move that is so not Hollywood. You know David Geffen is plotting his revenge somewhere in a day spa in Hollywood, seething under the cucumbers over his eyes. That’ll peel his nail polish.

Lauren Conrad Is a Republican, Just Like Heidi

We’ll admit, it never would have even occurred to us to ask Hills star Lauren Conrad about her personal politics if her arch-nemesis, Heidi Montag, hadn’t come out earlier this month as a McCain supporter. After that, we didn’t really have a choice. When we saw Conrad at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday, we asked her who would have her vote.

“Should I vote for the Republicans?” he asked. We seized the moment and craned our necks in Conrad’s direction. She clapped wildly. “Or the Democrats?” Ferguson asked. Conrad immediately placed her hands on the table and wrinkled her nose to her friend”

Heidi And Spencer Press Dinner Snafu

MTV “Hills” Duo Decline Invite

April 24. 2008

Ken And Barbie

Heidi Montag and her boyfriend Spencer Pratt (wow, people must tease you over the last name, huh) were invited to a White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, but he declined, claiming it wasn’t A-list enough. It’s more A-list than “The Hills.”

A couple years ago I was contacted by a leadership committee that asked me to join their group, where they said I would get invites to White House Correspondents’ Association dinners, among other things, but I declined, because it was a partisan organization attached to one of the political parties, and I wished to remain neutral. However, it was nice of them to ask.

But look what I missed. I could have been listening to Heidi and Spencer talk about the benefits of political…color coordination…that is, if they’d accepted.

McCain & Montag

McCain Endorsed By MTV Political Powerhouse Heidi Montag

A few days ago it was announced that reality TV star Heidi Montag has endorsed John McCain for President. McCain thanked her for her support, referring to her as a “very talented actress.” Boy, they really tortured you when they captured you, didn’t they (I’m just teasing).

I’m sorry, but I saw an episode of The Hills last week and I felt my IQ dropping as I watched. I couldn’t believe this is what all the fuss is about.

Why does Lauren Conrad give everybody that funny look right before they go to commercial. You know, that Renee Zellwegger face, like she’s sucking on a lemon. That’s another thing Renee, could life be that bad that you always look like you smell garbage somewhere. They’ve made cartoons of your sullen expressions. Why do so many actresses look so upset.

But back to Montag And McCain, it was a cute exchange. It made me giggle, because she knows people will joke about it and so does he. She is also brave to say she is a Republican in Hollywood. The “Gay Mafia” might take out a hit on you.

“On Wednesday, following Montag’s endorsement in Us Weekly, McCain told Time.com’s Swampland blog, “I want to assure her that I never miss an episode of The Hills, especially since the new season started.”

“I’m voting for John McCain,” Montag, 21, told Us Weekly in its latest issue, on newsstands now. “I’m a Republican and McCain has a lot of experience.”

When beau Spencer Pratt cautioned her about making an endorsement, Montag replied, “I don’t think anyone cares who Heidi Montag votes for.”

Why Is R Kelly Still Free

September 20, 2007 Comments off

September 20. 2007

R Kelly

It has been five years since the discovery of evidence pointing to his penchant for sex with underage girls. Since that time many others came forward to Vibe magazine testifying of their relationships with him as well, in which he promised them recording contracts and fame.

What they got was underage sex and emotional and psychological issues that have stayed with them to this day. The girls ranged in age from 13 to 15 years old.

Aaliyah

And let’s not forget, to me what is the worse piece of evidence, R. Kelly was married to late R&B singer Aaliyah, when she was all of 15 and he was 28. That’s all I needed to know.

It was alleged in Vibe magazine that he obtained a fake Illinois ID for her when she was 15, that stated she was 18, and they wed in a Chicago registrars office.

A year later, her parents had the marriage annulled via a Detroit judge. His name was mentioned in the article. Both the marriage and annulment are in Chicago and Detroit court records respectively.

The album Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, written and produced by R Kelly, was clearly what he was thinking regarding a then 15 year old Aaliyah

I always wonder why he wasn’t jailed then, as her father expressed that he was furious with R Kelly. He wouldn’t directly say why, but the Vibe article printed the marriage certificate and the information regarding the annulment. Therefore, you can pretty much guess why.

I remember years ago when Aailyah’s career had just started, R Kelly through a publicist announced the formation of his new label, Blackground Records.

After the scandal with Aaliyah, all people heard was the label was now Aaliyah’s uncle’s, staffed by their family members. Was that apart of a settlement, as it was introduced as being wholly owned by R Kelly and operated as such for over a year.

He should have been brought to justice then, as his conduct qualifies as statutory rape because she was 15 years old. And guess what happened? No charges were filed, they allowed him to remain free, then years later, a video tape surfaces, allegedly of R Kelly having sex with another 15 year old girl. Clearly a habit.

R Kelly has denied it is him on the tape, even inexcusably trying to state it is his brother. While I haven’t seen the tape and do not wish to, I have seen a photo of R Kelly’s brother online and they don’t look alike.

Carey Kelly

His brother is furious that R Kelly tried to pass the buck to him, as he himself has children and the accusation has caused him much embarrassment. His brother said in an article:

“Why are people feeling sorry for [R.]?” Carey asked. “Saying that the girl’s lying and that’s why he caught the case? He caught the case because that’s God’s way of waking him up. What you put out there comes back. It’s called karma. But I’m not trying to say anything that’s going to put him behind bars. I just wish that people that supposedly love him really reach out to him and say, ‘You need help, man.’ He’s sick and he needs help…”Chief among them, Carey says R. offered him $50,000, a record deal and a house if he would perjure himself on the witness stand.” – MTV


R&B star R. Kelly is reportedly at the center of another scandal, after claims from his troubled younger brother the singer has had sex with minors, beats his wife, has molested his nieces and has had physical relations with men. Carey Kelly launched the extraordinary attack in a low-budget DVD, which has since been leaked on the internet.

On it he claims his brother was so proud of a sex tape depicting him having intercourse with an underage girl, he held a special screening of it on his tour bus.

The sibling also contends R. Kelly offered him $50,000 and a lucrative record deal to hand himself over to police as the star of the video, so the Ignition hitmaker escaped charges. http://www.starpulse.com/news

Further damning evidence surfaced via R Kelly selling his Chicago home, with someone releasing pictures of the house, in it was a room in the property that matches the one on the illegally made tape of the 15 year old girl he was having sex with.

There is sufficient evidence to illustrate that R Kelly has a problem, a penchant for underage girls, who he is clearly a danger to, which renders him a danger to the community for that reason.

But what did we do? He was rewarded with numerous additional platinum albums, multiple tours and rave reviews for his music.

He’s going out on tour again, where it was alleged in the past, people in his camp would sneak underage girls backstage for him. It is my sincere prayer that he will be watched on this tour, to protect someone else’s innocent child from losing their innocence.

This cannot be allowed to continue. This needn’t happen again. They need to get R Kelly off the streets and into treatment.

I think if you commit certain crimes in life, you should automatically lose your career, especially if it has some form of a public podium attached to it.

While, God can forgive him, He also condones the use of the court system to bring lawbreakers to justice and pay their debts to society.

This isn’t a case of someone going around robbing banks. That money can be replaced. What he is doing to these underage girls cannot be undone. One can only pray they recover, as it is a terrible trauma.

This attitude from some, not all, of, “Oh, we have to support our black brother” or making excuses for his conduct because he is famous, isn’t going to fly. Bet you won’t want to support him if he catches your 13 year old daughter.

R. Kelly trial delayed until ’08

CHILD PORN CASE | Lawyer bickering may be the reason

September 5, 2007 – The trial of R&B superstar R. Kelly seemed as far off as ever Tuesday, as a Cook County judge announced yet another delay in the five-year-old case.

Kelly, 40, had been scheduled to go on trial Sept. 17 on child pornography charges. But Judge Vincent Gaughan said in court Tuesday it would be postponed.

“We are not going to be going to trial the 17th of September,” Gaughan said, without explaining why not.

Shauna Boliker, the lead prosecutor on the case, gave birth to a son last week. In an e-mail to reporters, Gaughan’s media liaison Terry Sullivan said Boliker “is not able to proceed at this time” because of “doctor’s orders.”

But other sources attributed the latest delay to lawyers’ wrangling over expert witnesses the prosecutors want to call.

Prosecutors charged Kelly in 2002 with making a 26-minute videotape in which he appears to be having sex with an underage girl. Kelly pleaded not guilty. The girl, allegedly 14 on the tape, is now 22 and has denied she is the one who appears.

The case has been plagued by delays from the beginning, with the defense and prosecution blaming each other. Then, in July 2006, Gaughan suffered injuries after falling from a ladder at his Chicago home. When he returned, Gaughan presided over the trial of now-convicted Brown’s Chicken killer Juan Luna.

A law enforcement source said the R. Kelly case will not go to trial until the spring of 2008 — after the trial of accused Brown’s Chicken killer James Degorski, Luna’s alleged accomplice. On Tuesday, Gaughan set a Feb. 13, 2008, trial date for Degorski.
