Dominic Monaghan is speaking out against Swamp People, and on behalf of animals everywhere.

The former Lost star, who labeled Matthew Fox a frequent woman beater in May, posted on Twitter a short while ago that the History Channel should put an end to its popular series ASAP.

Labeling the program as "death entertainment," Monaghan said Swamp People "continues to demonize reptiles as monsters and animals that are okay to torture and kill."

He added that "if alligator populations need to be controlled, I understand. But the act should not be glorified on TV" and concludes by pointing his finger squarely at the History Channel: "I blame the network, not the people."

What do YOU think? Should Swamp People get the axe?

Joe Paterno and other Penn State University engaged in a major cover-up to hide years of child abuse at the hands of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

So state the findings of a new independent investigation into the horrific world of the man recently convicted on 45 charges of sexual assault against minors.

According to The Freeh Group, a task force hired by the University Board of Trustees, Paterno "failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade."

The reports goes on to cite the famous, late football coach numerous times - and also includes references to Penn State president Graham Spanier, Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz - and states the leaders "repeatedly concealed critical facts" in order to stave off bad publicity for the school.

Based on interviews and emails, the group alleges Paterno knew about Sandusky's appalling, illegal actions since March 1998 and never acted to deny his co-worker access to young boys.

"They showed no concern about the victim," the report reads. "At the very least, Mr. Paterno could have alerted the entire football staff, in order to prevent Sandusky from bringing another child into the Lasch Building."

Paterno, who passed away in January of lung cancer, is classified as contributing to a list of "catastrophic failures" by the university to stop a child predator in his tracks.

It's a damning litany of accusations against a man long considered to be one of the most revered sports figures of the 20th century.

British police are investigating the possibility that heiress Eva Rausing may have died of a drug overdose up to a week before her body was found by police.

She was discovered dead Tuesday at her multimillion dollar London home.

Eva's husband, UK billionaire Hans Kristian Rausing, 49, is still being treated in hospital today after being arrested on Tuesday when detectives discovered the body of Eva, 48, during a bedroom search of the couple’s home.

He had been stopped for driving erratically earlier in the day and found to have drugs on his person. He is being investigated in her death.

Rausing

As part of the investigation into what detectives are describing as Eva's “unexplained” death, they are examining how long she might have lain dead and why.

A postmortem Tuesday proved inconclusive and further tests are being carried out to establish the cause of death, which could've taken place up to a week ago.

Police from the London Metropolitan police’s homicide and serious crime command unit have yet to interview Rausing, who remains under arrest but had been transferred to the hospital for treatment, with police officers present.

Eva and Hans were both friends of Prince Charles. She was a trustee of and major donor to his pet architecture charity, The Prince's Foundation for Building Community, and was a co-patron of Action on Addiction with Kate Middleton.

Kris and Bruce Jenner have a lot to celebrate with the arrival of Kourtney Kardashian's baby girl this week, but a new report says they are on the rocks.

The couple's 21-year marriage is "on the verge of collapse," according to the National Enquirer, after Bruce caught Kris cozying up to Todd Waterman.

Waterman, of course, is the woman she had an affair with while married to the late Robert Kardashian, and who she recently made contact with again.

This was documented on the current season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but Kris appeared to have cut off contact. Not so, the Enquirer says.

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner

The 62-year-old Bruce was reportedly devastated when he walked in on her composing an email to her ex, then meeting him for a secret rendezvous.

"She told no one, but she did go out with Todd, and it was an electrifying date,” said an insider with a gift for superlatives as well as Kris Jenner scoop.

“Kris walked out of the restaurant where they’d met looking like the cat that ate the canary. It’s so obvious that she still carries a torch for him."

After being busted signing an "xoxo" to Waterman, Kris made excuses claiming she needed final closure, but Bruce wasn't buying it and stormed out.

"He believes, ‘Once a cheater, always a cheater.’ He can believe that Kris has had the audacity to keep in contact with Todd," explained the friend.

"Cheating is a deal breaker for him, so their marriage is on the brink.”

In the wake of Octomom Nadya Suleman's decision not to show any T&A in their club, T's Lounge is suing her to make she sure she doesn't take her assets elsewhere.

T's Lounge wants at least $15,000 for the trouble of hiring, then losing, Nadya Suleman to rival Playboy Gentleman's Club in Hollywood, Fla., which secured her "services" after she unceremoniously bailed on T's last month.

The true damages are "unascertainable," the suit laments ... but $15K will do it.

Octo Mom Nadya Suleman

Octomom bailed on the gig amid trash talk from T's strippers, she says. The club denies this, but says regardless, she can't strip in the area for at least 90 days.

Also, per the lawsuit, her contract stipulated that she needed to give 35 days' notice if she intended to cancel, and that she only gave them 34 before pulling out.

"It means so much to be the first one to get her," T's owner Gary Odle said to the Palm Beach Post. "With this sort of thing, you have to be first out of the box."

Probably Wicked Pictures' rationale for fast-tracking the Octomom porn film.

Barring a judge's intervention, hornballs/gawkers can still go to the Playboy Gentleman's Club on Friday to "see Octomom take it off," or so their ads say.

Courtney Love is being sued for a former assistant who alleges malice, evil motives and despicable conduct on behalf of the Hole singer. Anyone surprised?

Jessica Labrie was hired by Love in June 2010 as an administrative assistant / "forensic research aide" for $30 an hour. Not a bad gig if you can get it!

Well, unless your boss is Courtney Love, a bona fide nut job whose own daughter emancipated herself and who makes Horrible Bosses quotes look tame.

For the Love of Courtney

Long story short ... do not work for this chick, bad job market or not.

Among Labrie's allegations, per the legal complaint:

  • Love had her working 60-hour-plus weeks without overtime
  • Love asked her to hire a computer hacker
  • Love directed her to send fake legal correspondence
  • Love promised to help with Labrie's Yale tuition and did not, nor did she pay any promised bonuses or land her a promised job on the set of a Nirvana biopic.

Labrie also states that, in addition to repeatedly asking for the money she was owed, she voiced concerns about the musician's unethical and illegal activity.

She is seeking damages for wrongful termination, failure to pay wages, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract and infliction of emotional distress.

Daniel Tosh has been known to push the envelope, but a recent joke about an audience member being gang-raped took it too far, even by his standards.

On Friday, the star of Comedy Central's Tosh.0 was doing standup at The Laugh Factory in L.A. and said at one point that rape jokes are always funny.

After a female audience member vocally disagreed, things got ugly.

According to the woman, Tosh said, "Wouldn't it be funny if that girl got raped by like, 5 guys right now? Like right now? What if a bunch of guys just raped her."

Daniel Tosh on Stage

The woman and her friend, both "completely stunned" and "humiliated," high-tailed it out of there as the audience guffawed in response to Tosh's wisecrack.

After she documented the experience on Tumblr, Tosh linked to the post and tweeted, "all the out of context misquotes aside, I'd like to sincerely apologize."

Smart move, though Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada was quick to defend him:

"Comedians tell jokes and sometimes they can be off color ... Daniel Tosh is one of the most caring people I know. He had no intentions of hurting anyone."

"I understand where she's coming from, but [Tosh] didn't attack [her] ... I feel bad for her and I apologize to her. If you are a member of the audience and you start dishing out something to a comedian, you better be able to take it."

Also fair. What do you think? Should Daniel have apologized?

 

UPDATE: The woman complained to the manager but was offered and accepted a refund and two complimentary tickets to the club, so beef quashed.

It's time to play the blame game.

As most celebrity gossip followers likely know by now, Justin Bieber was pulled over by Los Angeles patrolmen last Friday because he was speeding along the 101. It was merely the young star's latest brush with the highway law, too.

But multiple witnesses confirm the paparazzi were all over Bieber's car, with Justin himself dialing 911 not long after his ticket and doing whatever possible to alert authorities to the situation.

Justin Bieber, All Smiles

"This was like a Princess Diana situation," a California Highway Patrol insider told TMZ of the incident, referring to the 1997 tragedy in which the royal beauty's limousine crashed and she died while trying to elude photographers. "It was not Bieber's fault."

HOWEVER, others inside the department do cite Bieber's irresponsible actions, telling the site he could have simply gotten off the freeway.

"It's like rushing a woman to the hospital who's about to give birth," said a source. "You can't endanger the lives of innocent people, and Bieber did."

Whose side are you on in this blame game?

They were both notorious ladies' men in their heyday, but a new book alleges that rock legends Mick Jagger and David Bowie also romanced one another.

A controversial new book, Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger, by Christopher Andersen, details the tryst with quotes from friends and family.

Andersen claims the Bowie-Jagger gay affair started in the early 70s, with Mick going backstage at one of Bowie's concerts to meet up with his new friend.

Bowie-Jagger

"Bowie and Jagger were spotted everywhere together without their wives," Andersen says.

"Neither complained when a photographer snapped them in a moment of repose, Bowie tenderly cradling Mick’s head in his lap. Bowie also took Mick to gay films."

It came to a head though, Andersen claims, when Angie Bowie, who was married to David at the time, came home to find the two men asleep together in bed.

"By October 1973, the Bowies were living on Oakley Street, just a stroll from Cheyne Walk. Angie had been out of town for a few days," the author alleges.

Jeffrey S. Hubbard, a family friend of Usher and Tameka's Foster, is under investigation for the role he played in the accident that has left 11-year old Kyle Glover in a coma.

According to the Georgia police department, Hubbard was riding his jet ski along Lake Lanier and "ran over the top" of two juveniles who were being pulled by a pontoon and riding an inner tube.

Usher and Family

Sgt. Mike Burgamy, as reported by The New York Daily News, says two of his rangers actually witnessed the crash. He added that alcohol did NOT play a role, but neither did any kind of mechanical malfunction.

The second victim, an unidentified 15-year old female, and Glover were both wearing life jackets.

“One minute the jet ski was running around, the next he ran over the top of them. It happened that quickly,” Burgamy said. “It appears the watercraft did strike both juveniles, with the male taking the brunt of the force.”
