Nancy Grace doesn't hold back.

The news pundit and Dancing With the Stars competitor was not among the many people lauding the Amanda Knox verdict yesterday. Grace's thoughts on Knox's conviction (in the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher) being overturned?

"I think that it was a miscarriage of justice," she said.

Amanda Knox, Nancy Grace

Nancy Grace does not hold back when it comes to her favorite cash cows.

"I only hope Ms. Knox makes something of her life because she's certainly been given a second chance. Very few people are given the chance she has been given."

Knox, a University of Washington student who had been studying in Perugia, Italy, faced a sentence of 26 years in prison after being convicted of murder in 2009.

Yesterday, an appeals court overturned the 24-year-old's conviction.

Diddy claims he "backslid and regressed" when he went on a tirade the other night, shouting racial and homophobic slurs at a clubgoer in Atlanta.

The rap mogul is begging for forgiveness on Twitter for the outburst, which got so bad T.I. had to intervene and tell his boy to calm the heck down.

He threw ice at some guy, threatened to fight him and called him "n**ga" and a "f**got" all for drinking a rival brand of vodka. Seriously.

In his apology today, Diddy writes:

"I'm sorry for the ignorant way I repesented [SIC] myself ... I have backslid and regressed. Forgive me for my ignorance. Pray for me pls."

"I know better and I am better. I have a responibility [SIC] that I promise I will live up to. And I'm more dissapointed [SIC] in myself than you know."

"I will humble myself and learn."

The man on the receiving end, Ricky Parker, says he feels "humiliated and disrespected" and can't believe this entire fiasco erupted because he was drinking Grey Goose and NOT Ciroc vodka, which Diddy is a spokesperson for.

Neither can we. Watch the incident below if you haven't seen it:

Kate Major has convinced a Florida judge that Michael Loahn poses such a threat - he has allegedly threatened to "whack" her - that he's been restrained indefinitely.

Major, who used to be engaged to Lohan and has made similar claims about him in the past, only to retract them, says Lindsay Lohan's dad is also harassing her.

Incessant phone calls and texts, threatening to "ruin her career" (whatever that consists of), the works. Michael must now stay at least 500 feet away from Kate.

Happier times in between violent, ridiculous fights.

The judge also declared, hilariously, that Michael Lohan can't have Kate or her father followed by hired muscle. He also is prohibited from phoning or texting her.

MiLo, who has TMZ on speed dial we're guessing, quickly responded on the celebrity news site: "This is just another way of Kate trying to make money."

Not sure how that works exactly, but sure thing Mike.

Brooke Mueller is getting along much better with Charlie Sheen these days.

But the troubled celebrity is still fighting mad, aiming her anger at a treatment facility where she spent time in March of 2010.

B. Mueller

Mueller has filed a lawsuit against The Canyon rehab facility in Malibu because she believes staff members there leaked confidential medical information to the press.

It is true that Brooke's patient admissions forms were submitted to websites such as TMZ last spring, though that celebrity gossip outlet did not publish the documents.

Mueller is suing for undisclosed damages because she believes her privacy was violated.

Are you ready for some insanity?

When Hank Williams Jr. stopped by Fox & Friends this morning to discuss politics (absurd in itself), few could have imagined the views that the country music singer and longtime voice of Monday Night Football espouses.

Williams described this year’s “Golf Summit” between President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner as “One of the biggest political mistakes ever.” Sadly, that was Hank's high water mark for intelligence:

When the co-hosts asked Williams to explain, he offered this scintillating insight: “Come on! Come on! It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu!”

To the Fox News panel's credit, they were clearly dumbstruck, turned off and unsure of how to respond to such an outrageous comment in a live interview.

Still, you have to question the wisdom of having this guy on your show in the first place. You can't find an intelligent conservative voice to talk politics?

Your take: Is Obama a socialist?

 

UPDATE: ESPN has yanked Williams, saying in a statement: "We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast."

UPDATE #2: ESPN has fired Hank for good. He dubiously claims he quit, citing a violation of the First Amendment, which is just a ridiculous statement. Either way, he's out.

File this under Admissions We Did Not See Coming:

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Thomas Jane says he was once homeless and earned money as a man-on-man prostitute.

"When I was a kid out here in L.A., I was homeless. I didn't have any money and I was living in my car," the actor says. "I wasn't averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a sandwich. Know what I mean?"

Thomas Jane Picture

The Hung star, who been married twice, adds that "you're a lot more open to experimentation as a young man. And for me, being a young artist and broke in Los Angeles, I was exploring my sexual identity."

Does he have any regrets? Nope.

"Until you've tasted the food, you don't know whether you'll like it or not, as my mom always said."

Amanda Knox learned her fate at last as the verdict in her high-profile appeal of a murder conviction was read aloud in an Italian courtroom this evening.

It was overturned. The jury found her not guilty of murder, but guilty of defamation. She was ordered to be set free immediately after her acquittal.

Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, also cleared today, were sentenced to 25 and 26 years in prison following their 2009 convictions.

The 24-year-old student tearfully denied brutally killing roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy, 2007, pleading for freedom earlier Monday.

"I am not what they say I am. I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal," Amanda Knox said this morning, her voice trembling with emotion.

It was the most important speech of her life. It showed, and it worked.

"People always ask me, 'who is Amanda Knox?' I am the same person that I was four years ago, exactly the same person," she continued.

"The only thing that now separates me from four years ago is my suffering."

Knox and her family, present in Perugia, Italy, for the verdict, have always claimed that Amanda's imprisonment was a monumental judicial mistake.

Reports already suggest that Ashton Kutcher cheated on Demi Moore last month with at least one woman in San Diego, rumored to be 23-year old Sara Leal.

But new sources now say that Leal was only one of several women inside the actor's Hardrock Hotel room that evening. According to party promoter Gavin Naumoff, some South African yacht worker named Jacques Du Toit told him that his girlfriend, Alexis, was was up in a suite with Kutcher.

"Alexis told him Ashton’s room number and when he got there, a bodyguard was at the door who said it was a private party," Naumoff said to The Daily Mail. "Jacques explained he was the boyfriend of one of the girls and was let in.

"He found Ashton in a hot tub on the balcony with Alexis, Sara, a girl called Katie and another girl called Marta. They were all naked. Ashton invited Jacques to join them in the tub."

About a year before she started dating Chaz Bono, Jennifer Ella had an incident that she would just as soon forget. She was arrested and booked on a charge of “battery of an ex-spouse/fiancee/person with a dating relationship.”

Pretty hard core.

Jennifer Ella, Chaz Bono

Often referred to as “simple domestic battery,” the charge means that the perpetrator or attacker can be arrested “even if only the slightest force is used in the incident ... any unwanted physical touching will suffice."

Short story, you don't have to injure the victim to be convicted.

Four years after she was arrested on suspicion of having killed her roommate in Italy, American Amanda Knox pleaded for a jury to overturn the conviction.

"People always ask who is Amanda Knox? I am the same person I was four years ago. But I have lost a friend. I have lost my faith in Italian police," she said.

"I am paying with my life for something I have not done. Four years ago I didn't know what suffering was," she added, delivering her statement in Italian.

"I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal. I was not there."

Amanda Knox Appeals

In her second trial, Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito are fighting to be acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher. They were convicted in 2009.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, have called for their sentences - of 26 and 25 years, respectively - to be increased to life. Two judges and six jurors will decide.

Amanda Knox's appeal has focused largely on DNA evidence found on a knife and on a bra clasp belonging to the victim. They argue it's not enough.

Closing arguments was Knox called "Lucifer-like, demonic and Satanic," but her defense says that like Jessica Rabbit, she's not bad, just "drawn that way."
