Kony 2012 filmmaker Jason Russell’s wife Danica is blaming her husband’s “irrational” naked public meltdown on “extreme exhaustion and dehydration.”

NOT alcohol, stunningly.

Danica Russell issued a statement addressing Jason Russell's naked freak-out, which allegedly included vandalizing cars and masturbating in public:

“Let us say up front that Jason has never had a substance abuse or drinking problem, and this episode wasn’t caused by either of those things."

NOTE: Wouldn't you want to blame it on one or the other? Just to explain it away as a one-time thing, however embarrassing, and move on?

"But yes, he did irrational things brought on by exhaustion and dehydration.”

The filmmaker’s wife said the scrutiny Jason Russell received after his now-infamous film about alleged warlord Joseph Kony went viral took a toll on him.

“While the attention raised awareness about Joseph Kony, it also brought much attention to Jason - and, because of how personal the [Kony 2012] film is, many attacks against it were also very personal, and Jason took them very hard.”

Russell allegedly was walking around an intersection wearing “speedo-like underwear.” He then removed the underwear and made "sexual gestures."

George Clooney was arrested this morning outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Clooney, George

The actor was taking part in an organized demonstration to draw attention to that country's president, Omar al-Bashir, who is responsible for countless deaths in the region due to his blockade of humanitarian aide.

Clooney - who has traveled to the country and said in the past we're going to face a genocide if action isn't taken - testified before Congress on Wednesday regarding the "campaign of murder" in that nation.

"This is for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them and stop starving them. That's all we ask," USA Today quotes Clooney as saying after he was handcuffed and taken away today, following repeated warnings to leave the area.

Along with his father; U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (Dem.) of Virginia; NAACP President Ben Jealous and others, Clooney was placed in a Secret Service and has been charged with the misdemeanor of disorderly crossing a police line. Said the star's rep:

"They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."

Drama surrounding Whitney Houston's family continues to persist, long after this singer has passed away.

The latest controversy surrounds daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, who announced this week that she's dating Nick Gordon, a young man taken in by her mother many years ago and raised as her stepson.

Bobbi and Nick went public with their status on Twitter, with Gordon emphasizing there's no blood relation between the two and telling the "haters" they "don't have a brain" if they find anything wrong with the scenario.

Turns out, according to TMZ sources, Gordon was challenging Whitney's mom, Cissy, who a friend claims takes major exception to her granddaughter cozying up to her quasi sibling. She has reportedly labeled the relationship "incestuous" and believes Nick is taking advantage of a vulnerable Bobbi.

Moreover, this mole says Cissy is willing to take an extreme step in order to split the couple up: she's asking Whitney Houston's Estate to legally evict Gordon from the premises.

What do you think of Bobbi and Nick's relationship?

NFL star Brandon Marshall has been accused of - and denied - punching a woman in the face at a New York nightclub despite detailed reports to the contrary.

According to reports, the wide receiver was outside a club in Chelsea around 4 a.m. last Sunday morning when he got into an argument with a group of people.

He allegedly threw a punch that connected with 24-year-old Christin Myles.

Marshall, B

It's unclear at this time if Brandon Marshall intended to strike the woman ... or if she was collateral damage as Brandon was trying to KO someone else.

Either way, Myles says she suffered a black eye and filed a police report.

According to the New York Post, Myles was nervous about filing because of Brandon's high profile status, but ultimately she decided to go through with it.

But Marshall's lawyer says the 6'4", 230-pounder did NOT strike Myles, however, claiming she was hurt in a DIFFERENT brawl that went down at the club.

Remind us never to go out to said unnamed club.

BTW: Marshall was just unloaded by the Miami Dolphins in a trade to the Chicago Bears for a couple of draft picks. Nicely played by the 'Phins.

The thought of Elle Macpherson nude is typically a cause for celebration. But during an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday, this topic instead turned contentious between host and super model.

It all started when Macpherson admitted her bedroom wall is adorned with a photo from 1990 in which she poses nude on a beach, save for "a gun holster around my waist," she said, adding of the picture, which is taken from behind: "I love the image."

But Stern asked whether Elle's children - Arpad, 14 and Aurelius, 9 - were traumatized by such a decoration.

"Do your children get upset by that?" he wondered. "It's probably upsetting that his mother's ass is in the bedroom, and if the kids bring over friends..."

Macpherson's response?

"I think you're being absolutely Jewish... you're being overprotective. You sound like a nagging mother, 'Eleanor, should you have that picture in your room?' My children are very well-balanced."

The interview ended on a jovial note, with the two joking about Stern once seeing his mother coming out of the shower and Elle responding that of course that would be disturbing for a child, especially "if she looks like you."

But did Macpherson cross a line with the Jewish reference? You tell us:

Typically, Kim Kardashian is fine with anything south of the border. But only if it makes her money.

Hence the reality star's anger over a billboard in Mexico, located just south of California, that features a photo of Kim in a bikini and the words: "No arriesgue su belleza, ni su salud." Translation: Don't risk your beauty or your health.

Kim Board

As TMZ reports, however, the doctor behind this sign never asked permission to use Kim's likeness, responding to a question over that illegal maneuver by simply telling the site "Obviously I did not speak to Kim Kardashian. I do not have her number," and then hanging up when informed of why he violated the law.

Kim's legal team is on the case, which means this large-breasted former sex tape star is now involved in yet another feud.

She continues to go at it with Kris Humphries over their divorce, and finds herself in war of words with Jon Hamm.
