Farrah Abraham: Headed to Jail For Assault, Resisting Arrest?!

When Farrah Abraham got arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel last month, it initially looked as though she might walk away from the situation scot-free.

Though she remained in jail for more than 24 hours awaiting bail, prosecutors took their sweet time deciding whether or not she should be charged for allegedly assaulting a staff member at the hotel.

Well, good news for all you Farrah-haters out there:

Not only have the powers that be determined Ms. Abraham should go before a judge for the attack, they’ve also decided to charge her with resisting arrest!

This, according to TMZ, who reports that if she’s convicted on both charges, Farrah could face up to 18 months in prison.

There was a time when we’d say there’s no way someone with Farrah’s wealth, connections, and whiteness would ever go to jail over a pair of misdemeanors, but there are several factors that lead us to believe she might actually wind up doing time.

For starters, there’s the egregious nature of her offense.

Farrah didn’t justice resist arrest, she told the cops to “f-ck off,” repeatedly and in front of a video camera.

To make matters worse, Farrah’s 9-year-old daughter, Sophia, was in the hotel at the time of the incident.

Granted, she was upstairs asleep, but still.

Getting completely hammered and assaulting someone who was probably just trying to do his job while your young daughter is asleep under the same roof is … not a good look.

And while there was a time when pretty much every celebrity carried a wallet full of “get out of jail free” cards, those days are long gone.

In fact, Farrah’s years as a reality star might actually work to her disadvantage.

A decade of abusive and often violent behavior has been documented by camera crews and can now be viewed by a sentencing judge as a sort of impartial character witness.

And since Farrah was recently fired by MTV, she no longer enjoys the sort of personal wealth that might allow her to assemble an OJ-esque legal dream team.

That doesn’t mean Farrah is poor, of course — or remotely worried about her situation.

In fact, this week saw the launch of Farrah’s first app, which promises subscribers such perks as (non-porn) “exclusive” videos and the opportunity to follow Farrah on her own in-app social media network.

The venture probably won’t make her much money, but it serves as a reminder that Farrah is so delusional she would never consider the possibility that she’s not actually above the law.

A.J. Calloway: Host of Extra Denies Allegations of Sexual Assault

Extra host A.J. Calloway has been accused of sexual assault by Sil Lai Abrams, who is one of the dozen or so women who has come forward to accuse Russell Simmons.

In a newly published report, Abrams details her accusations against Calloway.

Now, Calloway has responded.

Sil Lai Abrams is an award-winning author and anti-domestic violence activist who has appeared across countless news networks over the course of her career.

And, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she accuses A.J. Calloway of having sexually assaulted her in the back of a car in 2006.

Abrams says that she met Calloway for a potential work opportunity while he was still a BET host. He was also married.

She says that, in the following weeks, he began hitting on her.

According to Abrams, her attempts to have strictly professional conversations with Calloway were met with attempts to instead discuss sex.

One night in December, Abrams recalls, Calloway exposed his genitals to her while he was driving her home after the two of them had gotten drinks.

Per Abrams’ recollection, Calloway said: “Do you see what you do to me?”

“Why don’t you do us both a favor and put that away?” Abrams suggested in response, attempting to diffuse the situation.

She says that, unfortunately, when they arrived at her house, he began kissing her and again exposed himself.

Calloway then allegedly tried to push her head into his lap.

According to Abrams, when that did not succeed, he took her hand, placed it on his penis, and used her hand to masturbate himself.

Abrams says that Calloway called her later that night and apologized.

It was only after confiding in friends that Abrams resolved to file a police report. Records show that she did just that.

As revealed by documents examinted by The Hollywood Reporter, Calloway was charged with forcible touching and attempted sexual misconduct offenses

Though NBC News had decided to not run Abrams’ story, The Hollywood Reporter did so after interviews with corroborating witnesses and after accessing and reviewing  documents, text message records, and court orders.

Even so, Calloway has released a statement of his own.

In a statement from his lawyer, A.J. Calloway denies the accusations of sexual assault.

“I was disappointed to read the false allegations about me in The Hollywood Reporter,” Calloway says.

“As I have maintained from the beginning,” he continues. “These allegations are not true.”

Calloway insists: “When I was first notified about these allegations by law enforcement more than a decade ago, I fully cooperated from the beginning and the case was dismissed.”

He then takes aim at The Hollywood Reporter for not burying the story.

THR chose to publish these meritless allegations,” Calloway’s statement reads. “Without a thorough investigation of the facts.”

Calloway concludes: “I intend to vigorously defend my reputation against these false accusations and will not let this cause further harm to my family.”

Sil Lai Abrams explains why she came forward about him and about disgraced music mogul Russell Simmons.

“I needed to tell my story,” Abrams says. “To say his name out loud, to let people know what he had done to me.”

She also says that she recorded an entire interview with Joy Reid for NBC News, but that the network decided to keep it under wraps.

“They took away my voice,” Abrams laments. “I want people to understand how incredibly challenging this is, with a story like mine that’s highly sourced, with me doing this [advocacy] work in the public arena.”

She says that she knows that sexual assault is difficult to even begin to prove, but that she has evidence to demonstrate that her claim is credible.

“If I didn’t have those things, let’s be very clear, no one would know about this today,” Abrams says. “I’m speaking out for all the other women who have been silenced, to let them know it’s not their fault.”

Our hearts of course go out to all survivors of sexual assault and sexual harassment.

50 Cent Mocks Terry Crews for His Sexual Assault

Late last year, Terry Crews reported his own sexual assault to the LAPD. This week, he testified about it before Congress in support of the Sexual Assault Survivors Bill of Rights Act.

Unfortunately, the courage that he has demonstrated in coming forward has opened him up to ridicule from people who think that the story of his sexual assault is funny.

50 Cent shared multiple shameful, now-deleted posts in which he attempts to ridicule Crews.

Fiddy

In one of the now-deleted Instagram posts, 50 Cent shared a pair of images of Terry Crews.

The top one said "I was rape. My wife just watched." The display of Crews' muscles is meant to be juxtaposition for those words.

The bottom one features Crews with a rose clenched horizontally in his teeth, and is captioned "gym time."

50 Cent added his own commentary, writing: "LOL What the f–k is going on out here man? Terry: I froze in fear, they would have had to take me to jail."

Like just about every post he writes, 50 Cent ended his caption with "get the strap," a bizarre catchphrase that means to escalate a situation in response to hostility.

In another, more bizarre post, a photo of Terry Crews is captioned: "I am a boy."

"LOL. GET THE F–K OUTTA HERE," 50 Cent writes. "You not doing this to me. LOL"

He then writes, as always, "get the strap."

This post has also been deleted.

That deletion is for the best.

On top of everything else, many noticed that Russell Simmons left a laughing emoji response.

Russell Simmons faces multiple sexual assault allegations and has stepped down from his former position.

It is sickening to see anyone mock someone who has been courageous enough to come forward and share their story of being groped with the world.

There is an added layer of nausea when someone accused of effectively kidnapping younger women after gaining their trust, of allegedly raping them, joins in on the "joke."

Simmons is notably close friends with Adam Vanit, the man who allegedly assaulted Crews. Water, some have remarked about their friendship, will always find its level.

In case you ever wonder why so many people don't come forward about their experiences with sexual assault, this kind of thing is why.

Terry crews in scarlet

Terry Crews has been asked why, when talent agent Adam Venit allegedly fondled his genitals, he did not use violence to stop the assault.

"As a black man in America, you only have a few shots at success… I have seen many, many young black men who were provoked into violence. And they were imprisoned or they were killed. And they’re not here."

Crews knew that if he used physical force, he would be arrested for assault. His children would lose their father.

Instead, he is still spending money, but not as a defendant.

People mocking him for showing thoughtfulness are sending a message to untold millions of present and future survivors of sexual assault that they, too, will face ridicule if they come forward.

It is a heinous thing.

50 cent in a cap

Speaking to TMZ, Terry Crews took the high road when asked about 50 Cent's social media posts.

"I love 50 Cent, man," Crews said.

"I listen to him when I'm working out," Crews shares. "And that's the deal."

Crews condludes: "I love him…I prove that size doesn't matter when it comes to sexual assault."

He's right. Even the largest, strongest man can be assaulted, whether the sexual predator uses alcohol or threats or social blackmail or the implication of reprisals.

All of the people asking why women didn't fight back against Harvey Weinstein or others should consider that this can happen to anyone.
