Joe Eszterhas, a screenwriter tasked with penning the since-rejected screenplay for Mel Gibson's latest movie, has accused the actor of anti-Semitism.

"You hate Jews," bluntly says Basic Instinct and Showgirls writer Eszterhas, who was to write Gibson's film about Biblical Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

In a nine-page letter to Warner Bros., Eszterhas accuses Gibson of solely pitching The Maccabees "to deflect charges of anti-Semitism which have dogged [him]."

Mel then allegedly made anti-Semitic remarks throughout the writing process.

Good Ol Mel Pic

In his letter, Eszterhas (who is Jewish) claimed that Gibson continually referred to Jews in front of him as "Hebes," "oven-dodgers" and "Jewboys."

He also claims Mel called the Holocaust "mostly a lot of horses--t"; and said his intention with The Maccabees was "to convert Jews to Christianity."

Not surprisingly, Gibson fired back just hours later.

Calling Eszterhas' claims "utter fabrications," the oft-troubled star responds, "I will acknowledge that like most creative people I am passionate and intense."

The University of Arkansas has fired head football coach Bobby Petrino after he attempted to conceal, and later admitted to an “inappropriate relationship” with his recently hired 25-year-old employee, Jessica Dorrell.

Petrino’s relationship with Dorrell lasted a “significant” amount of time, and at one point, Petrino gave her $20,000 out of his own pocket as a “gift.”

Dorrell, a former Arkansas volleyball player (below), was hired by Petrino on March 28, only four days before both were involved in a motorcycle crash on a rural road outside the city, prompting the coach to lie but ultimately exposing Petrino's affair.

Jessica Dorrell, who reportedly called off an engagement one week before the accident, has hired a lawyer and could sue for sexual harassment.

As the story unfolded after Petrino crashed his motorcycle 10 days ago, many Arkansas faithful came to their coach’s defense, rallying to show support and pleading with the administration to forgive Petrino and move forward.

But in the end, Bobby Petrino accepted the fate he earned - dismissal.

In a statement, issued after the announcement, Petrino was contrite:

Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has apologized and tried to explain his seemingly pro-Fidel Castro comments, but the team still suspended him for five games.

Even after the suspension was announced and a contrite Guillen held a nearly hour-long news conference to apologize, tensions have not simmered down.

For the city with the highest Cuban-American population, Guillen's comments, who was quoted in Time saying he loves and respects the dictator, it was too much.

A large group of protesters gathered outside calling for the Venezuelan manager's ouster. Some local politicians have weighed in, looking for Guillen to be fired.

But the South Florida Sun-Sentinel is also reporting that the Marlins players are supportive of their first-year manager, who won a World Series with Chicago.

"I think everybody in that clubhouse looks up to Ozzie and what he's done," said catcher Jon Buck, the Marlins players' representative. "It's all been positive."

"You guys can feel the atmosphere he's changed in the clubhouse."

"I feel like he doesn't need to apologize to me, but I'm not Cuban, I don't know how it feels to have that looming over you. I'm coming from a baseball aspect."

Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, is seen hitting the bong HARD in a 2011 video posted by the National Enquirer on its new Enquirer Plus site.

The oft-troubled 19-year-old was partying with friends who attend college in Statesboro, Ga., in March of last year, when the bong video was taken.

The Enquirer video shows Bobbi Kristina smoking marijuana out a three-foot-tall bong, inhaling the smoke so deeply that she nearly collapses coughing.

In the video, Bobbi Kristina says, “Give me the lighter,” and then lights the bong, takes a huge hit, coughs and goes back for more ... like a boss.

Bobbi Kristina was staying with friends at the school and brought along a big bag of pot for the party,” a source at the party said of that epic night.

“When I left at 6 a.m. the next day, she was still partying hard. Between tokes, Bobbi was drinking shots of Grey Goose and Skyy Blue vodka."

“She’s obviously a seasoned partier.  With the amount of pot and alcohol she was using, I would've passed out, but she was going strong.”

Celebrity Apprentice star and beauty queen Dayana Mendoza is firing back at co-star Lisa Lampanelli for a racial insult she allegedly used during a radio interview.

It all went down last month when Lampanelli appeared on Sirius XM, saying:

"I actually would love to see [Dayana] giving birth. She’s a sp*c! She’s going to do it f**king soon, anyway. She’ll be knocked up before the end of the week.”

Lampanelli is no stranger to using that slur in particular. Here's a portion of a routine she did a few years back in which she says that and much worse:

Dayana tells the Huffington Post, "I understand that it's Lisa's job to make fun of people for a living. If poking fun at me can help her sell tickets, no problem."

"I am happy to help her put food on her table. However, when she uses racial slurs, she is not only targeting myself but degrading an entire Hispanic culture."

Lindsay Lohan has been off probation for under two weeks and is already making more headlines with alleged nightclub antics, though she denies causing trouble.

She is accused of getting into an altercation with a woman in a club last week, with the accuser filing an incident report alleging battery at the hands of Lohan.

The woman claims Lindsay got into it with her at a nightclub Thursday. She says she was talking to a male friend of Lindsay's, which Lohan did not care for.

That's when she began pushing, shoving and hitting ... allegedly.

Lindsay Lohan Pantsuit

Law enforcement sources say they will investigate these claims, like they would any other incident like this, to determine their validity before proceeding.

LL's rep, Steve Honig, the hardest working man in LA, tells TMZ:

"Lindsay Lohan was absolutely not involved in any sort of altercation. This is clearly another case of someone looking for money and 15 minutes of fame."

According to sources close to Lohan, she denies any wrongdoing in this case, saying she wasn't even THERE, but rather at home that night watching TV.

The actress is said to be particularly frustrated by this accusation, since even when she stays home and avoids trouble, she feels it seems to find her anyway.

FYI, she was supposedly watching Homeland on Showtime. Good show.

Let's give Amanda Bynes credit: the actress didn't merely get arrested for DUI early this morning. She made her arrest count!*

Amanda Bynes Mug Shot

Following this incident cops pulled the 26-year old over, determined she was not fit to be driving and hauled her into the station. She was released hours later on $5,000 bond.

* We are just kidding. No DUI arrest ever "counts" for anything positive. Stay alive, readers. Don't drink and drive.

Francis "Coyote" Shivers, the ex-husband of NCIS star Pauley Perrette, was booked today on a misdemeanor warrant for violation of a restraining order.

The LAPD Hollywood Division would not confirm that the restraining order was taken out by Perrette herself, or elaborate on the events that unfolded.

Shivers is currently being held on $100,000 bail, however.

Shivers

Pauley's ex, who also goes by his indie rocker nickname "Coyote", has been feuding with her for years and has taken it upon himself to post negative comments and legal documents on his Tumblr account regarding Perrette.

The NCIS actress married Francis Shivers in 2000 and divorced him in 2004.

Per her rep, Perrette, 42, is not commenting on or discussing the issue.

It's safe to say Gregg Williams will never coach in the NFL ever again.

Already suspended indefinitely by Commissioner Roger Goodell - due to his role in a New Orleans Saints bounty program, in which players under his control pooled money and offered it was a reward for debilitating hits - Williams is in the spotlight again this week because audio of a speech he delivered prior to a 2012 playoff game against the 49ers has been leaked.

And it isn't pretty.

As you can hear in the video above, Williams encourages his players to "kill the head" and "the body will die."

University of Arkansas Head Football Coach Bobby Petrino was placed on administrative leave yesterday after he admitted to a "previous inappropriate relationship" with a former student and current school employee.

Athletic Director Jeff Long made the announcement at a press conference, as the news came to light after Petrino was involved in a motorcycle accident this week and forced to admit he was riding with 25-year old Jessica Dorrell.

Arkansas Coach

"I'm at the beginning of the review. I don't know what I'm going to find," Long said. "I hope to have a resolution soon. I certainly don't have all the answers here tonight, as we meet. But again, I have an obligation and responsibility to obtain the information and then act appropriately on that information."

Petrino is married with four children.
