Blac Chyna: A Protective Order Against Rob Shouldn’t Cost Me My Job!

The Kardashians and Blac Chyna, through the precious and innocent Dream Kardashian, will always be linked. Right now, they’re also linked through a couple of major legal battles.

You know how the Kardashians are saying that it’s Blac Chyna’s own fault that her reality career didn’t take off, because her restraining order made it impossible to film scenes with Rob?

Well, Blac Chyna thinks that the argument is hogwash (not her word) and sends a horrible message to survivors of abuse.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian both accuse each other of drug-fueled violence, which is honestly pretty horrifying on its own.

(Domestic violence should never happen, folks)

Blac Chyna claims that she was only violent in self-defense, while Rob claims that she went on a destructive rampage that caused about $ 100,000 in damages to the house he was renting from his sister Kylie.

These very serious accusations aren’t just a huge factor in why the infamous couple broke up.

They’re also a huge factor in Blac Chyna’s lawsuit against the Kardashian family.

See, Chyna is suing the family, claiming that they blacklisted her with E! and killed her potential reality career, starting with the show that she had with Rob.

She’s reportedly seeking a 7-figure amount in compensation for what she could have made in wages and also what she could have made in endorsements.

Apparently, however, the Kardashians aren’t worried about Blac Chyna’s lawsuit … because they claim that it’s Chyna’s own fault that her show got canceled.

Those domestic violence accusations we mentioned?

They included a restraining order against Rob Kardashian. He couldn’t go near her because, well, Chyna was afraid of what he might do.

The Kardashian argument seems to be that the show’s cancellation wasn’t part of some conspiracy, but simply because two stars can’t film a show (not easily, anyway) if one has a restraining order against the other.

At the very least, they can’t film scenes together like that.

TMZ reported that the Kardashian team was making that argument, and is now reporting exactly what Chyna thinks of it.

Apparently … she’s not a fan.

In fact, Blac Chyna reportedly believes that this sends a message that women who suffer domestic violence like she did shouldn’t get a protective order, or it might later be used against them.

While her circumstances — filming a reality series with her baby daddy who became her alleged abuser — are pretty unusual, there are plenty of women who work with their partners.

Should our world be one in which women who get protective orders against their abusers have to fear professional consequences?

What if a woman gets a restraining order from her husband and, say, the office job where they both work fires her in order to resolve the problem of their cubicles being too close?

At least, that’s what we think that Chyna is getting at.

Of course, TMZ notes that there’s arguably one hiccup with Blac Chyna’s argument.

She dropped her order of protection after she won big time in her custody fight.

So … it might appear that, by example, she’s promoting the use of restraining orders as a bargaining chip.

But maybe she dropped it as a sign of good faith, in the hopes that Rob is no longer a threat to her.

And to make custody trade-offs a little easier between the two.

Not everything has to be a calculated ploy, right?

Not even when we’re talking about Blac Chyna’s legal struggle with the Kardashians.

Probably.

Billy Bush: I Shouldn’t Have Been Fired Over the Trump Tape!

Recently, Donald Trump has been claiming his voice on the infamous video in which he bragged about sexual assault was not his voice, even though, as we all remember, he had admitted to it within hours of the video's release.

Billy Bush replied that it is Trump's voice, which anyone with ears can hear for themselves.

Well, Billy Bush, who lost his job over the scandal of that tape — in which he was heard laughing along with Trump's horrific statements — is reflecting on that now (in the video below), in light of Hollywood's recent scandals and Trump's recent statements.

Billy bush at the mic

As we all remember, Trump infamously said:

"You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet, just kiss," the orange man was heard saying.

Among his sexual assault accusations are just that — forcing a kiss without a woman's consent.

"I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it."

Gross.

"You can do anything. Grab 'em by the pussy. You can do anything."

There are people who went out and voted for the entity that uttered those words, because some people go to the polls out of spite and nothing else, we suppose.

Billy bush sucks

Speaking to Stephen Colbert, Billy Bush — since Trump decided to bring up the subject in recent weeks with his inexplicable denials — is reflecting on how that scandal impacted him.

"It was a difficult time."

Well, Billy Bush and his wife separated on top of all of the blowback to his career.

"I think it was very hot, emotionally, in the country."

We think that he means that the political climate was very heated. And it was. And is.

"A lot of people were not comfortable with the man who was close to winning the election and a lot of things happened quickly."

It sounds like he's saying that firing him wasn't the right choice. That perhaps people wanted him fired because Trump was so awful, and Billy Bush was guilty by association.

Others would say that if Billy Bush had respected women more and been heard expressing that on that tape, he wouldn't have faced these consequences.

Clearly, Billy's had a lot of time to think about this.

"The very day he was swearing in as the 45th President of the United States, I was checking into this soul-searching retreat in Santalina, California for nine days."

A sizable chunk of the American populace spent that day preparing for the Women's March.

Bush billy

Billy Bush suggests that he's not the only one who believes that he shouldn't have been fired over Trump's words.

"My boss, later, months later, said publicly: 'I think we may have moved a little quickly.'"

Perhaps. But there might have been a boycott if they hadn't. The majority of Americans were and are anti-Trump, and a boycott could really hurt.

"I will say, I would have liked the chance to have been able to address the audience that following Monday."

That's fair. Unless he himself was actually committing sexual assaults instead of hearing Trump brag about them, he deserved the chance to explain himself.

Plus, a public apology in that format mgiht have done some good.

"But it was right after the debate and I think the tape made it in time for the debate, so I didn't get that."

Remember those debates? It was a simpler time, when so many Americans still had hope.

Billy Bush talks about how Matt Lauer, who's now been fired for sexual misconduct and in fact accused of rape, went to bat for him.

"We had a conversation about that and I was told, he told me, that he went to the bosses and took that line."

We don't believe that Billy Bush knew at the time that the man defending him was an alleged sexual predator.

"I said that I appreciated it, and I accepted it, and thanked him."

Billy Bush continues to reflect on the tape.

"I think the bus ride was the tip of the iceberg."

Honestly, some of what he says next isn't super clear, so we'll do our best to translate.

"I'm worried that the dialogue isn't gonna be around, because we have all these [things], we get onto the next thing."

That's a little complicated, but we think that he's saying that people don't have time to have a conversation about one sexual assault before we hear about the next one.

"We get on our phones, the next outrage comes."

That pretty much sums up the unending nightmare of 2017 right there.

"We have to continue it all the way through, and I hope we do that."

He means, we think, that our society needs to continue its conversation about sexual assault to its conclusion instead of allowing ourselves to be distracted.

Billy bush on today show

Billy Bush, in that infamous recording, did what so many people have done over the years.

Nothing.

A lot of us should think about remaining silent when we hear someone say something sexist and appalling. Just a few words can make a difference.

And that goes for when people say racist, homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise bigoted statements, too.

Obviously, there are situations when speaking up isn't safe. But we should all pay attention and speak up when we can.

Otherwise, well, we've totally missed the point of Billy Bush's experiences over the last 14 months.

Here's the video:

"It was a difficult time."

"I think it was very hot, emotionally, in the country."

"A lot of people were not comfortable with the man who was close to winning the election and a lot of things happened quickly."

"The very day he was swearing in as the 45th President of the United States, I was checking intot his soul-searching retreat in Santalina, California for nine days."

"My boss, later, months later, said publicly: 'I think we may have moved a little quickly.'"

"I will say, I would have liked the chance to have been able to address the audience that following Monday."

"But it was right after the debate and I think the tape made it in time for the debate, so I didn't get that."

 

"We had a conversation about that and I was told, he told me, that he went to the bosses and took that line."

"I said that I appreciated it, and I accepted it, and thanked him."

"I think the bus ride was the tip of the iceberg."

"I'm worried that the dialogue isn't gonna be around, because we have all these [things], we get onto the next thing."

"We get on our phones, the next outrage comes."

That pretty much sums up the unending nightmare of 2017 right there.

"We have to continue it all the way through, and I hope we do that."
