Marcellus Wiley Redskins Didn’t Make A Bad Decision By Claiming Reuben Foster


Marcellus Wiley says the Redskins did the right thing in claiming Reuben Foster … telling TMZ Sports the linebacker is “innocent until proven guilty” and deserves a second chance.

There aren’t many that would agree with the ex-NFL superstar … ‘cause Foster has now been accused of domestic violence multiple times in the last year — including being arrested 3 days before the ‘Skins picked him up.

But, Wiley explains, “You gotta allow the guy to have his opportunity. He’s not on the field right now. They claimed him off waivers and they wanted to make sure that, ‘We do the proper investigation and figure out who he is and what happened.'”

“And, look, there are some question marks about this allegation, because last time, his girlfriend recanted her story.”

Marcellus tells us Reuben deserves the chance to let the process play out — and says the Redskins are doing the right thing by keeping him off the roster until it does.

“Let’s just respect the entire process … remember when we had to actually think you were innocent until proven guilty? I’m still in that place.”

We also asked Wiley for his take on the Kareem Hunt situation … and while Wiley says the RB made a HUGE mistake — he doesn’t believe the superstar’s career is over.

BUT — Marcellus says the 23-year-old HAS to show remorse in order to latch back on with another NFL team.

“He has to earn that opportunity … if he earns a second chance by contrition, by rehabilitation, he’ll get it.”

Amanda Bynes ‘She’s the Man’ Caused Severe Depression … I Didn’t Like Me As A Boy

Breaking News

Amanda Bynes is opening up about her past issues with drugs, acceptance and a deep battle with depression brought on by one of her most famous movie roles. 

Bynes starred in “She’s The Man” back in 2006, playing a teen girl who dressed like a boy, pretending to be her brother. Amanda sported short hair and sideburns for the role, and the film grabbed a ton of attention. 

In a new interview with PAPER — Amanda’s first in a long time — she reveals the movie left her in a deep depression, saying, “When the movie came out and I saw it … I didn’t like how I looked when I was a boy.” She called seeing herself in the role a “super strange and out-of-body experience. It just really put me into a funk.”

Bynes shares she’s been sober for the last 4 years and blames a lot of her past issues — including her infamous tweet where she said she wanted Drake to “murder my vagina” — on drugs.

Amanda remains under a conservatorship that started in 2014, and was recently extended until at least 2020.

She’s currently a student the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in L.A. — but says she’d eventually like to get back into acting if the opportunity presents itself. 

Caitlyn Jenner’s Partner Says Trans Leaders Got It Wrong, She Didn’t Vote For Trump

Ashley Darby: My Husband Didn’t Grope that Man! It’s All Lies!

Ashley Darby is speaking out now that her husband Michael Darby has been accused of sexual assault.

Not only is the The Real Housewives of Potomac star standing by her man, she’s claiming that charges have not even been filed.

She also announces that her husband has not been suspended by Bravo. Is she telling the truth?

Ashley Darby took to her Instagram Story on Saturday to affirm her support her embattled husband.

“No charges filed,” she writes. “No arrest made.”

“No Bravo suspension,” she continues. “No worries.”

She then promises fans: “We’ll keep you posted.”

That is very interesting … considering that two of those claims are in conflict with reports.

TMZ‘s report, which we are inclined to believe, says that Darby has been charged with felony assault.

(He has also been charged with misdemeanor improper sexual contact)

He has also been suspended by Truly Original, the production company behind The Real Housewives of Potomac.

And he has been suspended by Bravo, who say that they have procedures to follow when allegations of this nature are made.

It is curious that Ashley would make an announcement that is contrary to what we’ve heard.

As you may recall, these allegations — reported to police within days of the October 1 incident — were made by a cameraman, Orville Palmer.

According to his accusation, Michael Darby began by giving him what he perceived to be a flirtatious look.

On its own, that’s a pretty subjective perception, and almost never a crime.

He says that Darby then grabbed and groped his butt.

He says that he put down the camera and demanded that Darby stop touching his butt.

There was another alleged incident, days before, in which Michael Darby is said to have kicked him in the butt.

Kicking someone’s butt is not necessarily sexual in nature, but consider this:

One: you should not be touching anyone’s posterior without permission.

Two: kicking a butt might not be inherently sexual, but it’s inherently assault. Stop it.

As we mentioned, Palmer filed charges just days after the October 1 incident.

Some may feel a surge of anger towards Ashley for standing by her husband when these allegations have been made.

We should remember that blame for misdeeds — alleged or proven — should not be misplaced to a person’s family or loved ones.

Ashley, like so many people who are close to those who are accused of predatory behavior, is struggling to reconcile the man she knows with what she has now heard.

She may believe that this is over a vendetta against her husband, or somehow a ploy to make money.

Be angry with her for her claims that are contrary to reports, if you like, but not every wife is likely to file for divorce when allegations surface.

What makes this story a little complicated is that this alleged sexual assault case is that this is a married man who is accused of groping another man.

Obviously, not all sex crimes are about attraction, but a lot of people find that surprising and even difficult to accept.

There have been other famous man-on-man assault stories. The most famous among them are probably Brendan Fraiser and Terry Crews.

No one has the right to touch another person without their consent.

It is neither “gay” nor “homophobic” to report a sexual assault committed by one man upon another. Crimes are crimes.


Danielle Mullins’ BFF: I Didn’t Mean to Say Muslim People Have Sex With Goats

Danielle Mullins and Mohamed Jbali are one of 90 Day Fiance‘s most controversial couples — even though they’re now bitter exes.

Back when they were together, one of Danielle’s friends made a joke about Mohamed having lost his virginity to “his family goat.”

Because many viwers pointed out that her jab appeared to have bigoted undertones, she is finally explaining herself to Danielle’s fans.

Danielle Mullins and Beth Mahar

Danielle’s friend Beth Mahar took to Danielle’s Facebook page to set the record straight.

“Ok folks,” Beth writes. “Since my comment to Mohamed about his family goat is still such a hot topic for some people I am taking this opportunity to explain it”

“I am not racist in any way, shape or form,” Beth insists.

“I am married to a Muslim immigrant from Pakistan,” she shares, adding that she has been married “for the past 7 years now.”

She even notes that “My husband is a much more devout practicing Muslim than Mohamed Jbali.”

Danielle Mullins Facebook message by Beth Mahar

Obviously, friendship or even marriage does not preclude someone from being a bigot. But that doesn’t mean that Beth is a bigot, either.

“This TV show, 90 Day Fiancé, etc, etc, is strictly for entertainment purposes only,” Beth points out.

Beth says: “My comment to him about the family goat insinuating basically that the family goat was his first sexual experience was for entertainment value only”

“Was it inappropriate or in bad taste?” Beth asks. “Yes, probably so, and I sincerely apologize to anyone who it may have offended.”

After that very reasonable apology, she writes: “(except Mohamed…LOL)”

“But seriously,” Beth continues. “I truly am not racist and no TV show whether reality or not should be taken so damn seriously.”

“By the way just for everyone’s information,” Beth explains. “That comment and filming of this particular scene was filmed over a year ago.”

“Again,” Beth continues. “I didn’t mean to offend anyone other than ‘s–t head’ and I certainly do not have anything against Muslims.”

That is very reassuring to hear!

Beth concludes: “I hope this helps to clarify my comment for those who got the impression that I am a racist, Muslim hater.”

This is a complicated topic!

On the one hand, it’s absolutely a reality television show. No one should seek to emulate the behavior that they see from random reality stars.

On the other hand, the words that we say have impact, especially when those words are broadcast to millions of TV screens.

Inside jokes or personal jabs don’t translate well through television.

Some people may be offended, while others may parrot those insults to others who are not Mohamed Jbali but merely share his skin tone.

It is great that Beth Mahar came forward to clear the air about this, even though it is admittedly pretty weird that she did it on Danielle’s Facebook page.

(She could have made it on her own page and then let Danielle share it)

But it’s important to remember that making fun of a bad person for something like weight, accent, or cultural differences doesn’t just impact them — it impacts entire communities.

You can poek fun at Mohamed’s misdeeds if you like, but leave his culture out of it.


Rose McGowan: I Didn’t Know What Asia Argento Did Until Now!

Although Rose McGowan says she’s heartbroken over the accusations that Asia Argento slept with a minor and paid to cover it up, some have wondered what she knew of it, and when.

Both, after all, were very close over the past year, and were outspoken early voices in the #MeToo movement.

Rose is clearing the air and revealing exactly when and what she learned about Asia’s current scandal.

In a very lengthy statement to E!Rose McGowan explains the extent of her involvement in Asia Argento’s case.

“Many people believe that because we have been close in each other’s lives over the past year,” Rose writes. “That perhaps I am affiliated with this incident or being complicit.”

“I am not,” Rose affirms.

She says that, through their shared experience with Harvey Weinstein, she and Rose “were able to talk through them [their experiences] together and champion each other’s voices.”

But she says that there were things about Asia that she did not know, and makes it very clear what she did know and when.

Rose mentions that she referred Asia to her partner, Rain Dove.

Rose describes Rain as “a person to whom many high profile entities consult when they are experiencing social pressures because Rain is good at guiding them through the research confrontation, rehabilitation, and solution process.”

And while Rose knew that Asia needed help, she says that there were limits to what Asia had told her.

“While in Berlin,” Rose writes. “Asia had mentioned that she was being extorted for a large sum of money every month.”

“No one in the room knew who the extortionist was,” Rose says. “Now we know it to be a reference to this case.”

Apparently, Asia and Rain kept contact, during which “Asia had revealed that she had indeed slept with Jimmy Bennett.”

Rose then makes an explosive statement: “Rain also shared that Asia had stated that she’d been receiving unsolicited nudes of Jimmy since he had been 12.”

“Asia mentioned in these texts that she didn’t take any action on those images,” Rose says. “No reporting to authorities, to the parents, or blocking of Jimmy’s social media.”

Rose says that apparently Asia hadn’t sent “even a simple message ‘Don’t send me these images. They are inappropriate.'”

“There were a few other details revealed as well that I am not at liberty to mention in this statement as investigators do their job,” Rose says.

Ultimately, Rose shares, she and Rain spoke and decided that it would be best if Rain went to the police with what they knew.

Rose says that “almost 48 hours later the texts were in the press.”

That would be these Asia Argento texts.

“It was not a surprise to me that I received that call and the messages from them,” Rose admits. “I’ve referred to Asia in the past as ‘My Ride or Die’ and said very clearly that their friendship comes first.”

“I know that coming to me with those messages must have been hard for Rain because of that,” Rose adds. “So I commend them for their bravery.”

“Asia you were my friend,” Rose says. “I loved you. You’ve spent and risked a lot to stand with the MeToo movement.”

A movement that some opportunists are hoping will lose credibility even though, obviously, the vast majority of the women who have shared their stories are not also women who’ve banged minors.

“I really hope you find your way through this process to rehabilitation and betterment,” Rose says compassionately. “Anyone can be be better- I hope you can be, too.”

“Do the right thing,” Rose implores her. “Be honest. Be fair. Let justice stay its course. Be the person you wish Harvey could have been.”

We somehow suspect that Asia will not appreciate the comparison, even if Rose was certainly not equating the two.
