O.J. Simpson says his conviction for robbery and kidnapping was totally flawed because black jurors were wrongly excluded and the judge was prejudiced.

Really.

O.J. Simpson Mug Shot III

Addressing a three-justice panel of the Nevada Supreme Court, his attorney Yale Galanter, said O.J.'s guilty verdict should be overturned for said reasons.

Simpson, who was acquitted after allegedly killing his ex-wife and her friend in 1995, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the 2007 kidnapping/robbery.

Galanter said a litany of flaws called the outcome of the 2008 case into question, however, saying the judge served as a de facto prosecutor against O.J.

"I don't think this trial was handled in a fair and impartial manner," Galanter said of Judge Jackie Glass, who he believes was biased towards the Juice.

Worst. Appeal. Ever.

Galanter cited an argument with the judge where, he discovered later, a bailiff was standing behind him during the exchange, handcuffs at the ready.

"I had no idea that was happening. But the mental picture that creates for jurors is devastating for a lawyer trying to have credibility," Galanter said.

Also devastating? O.J. when he's in a bad mood. Right, Christie Prody?

Prosecutors also wrongly excluded the only two African-Americans in the jury pool strictly because they might empathize with the defense, he added.

"Their speculation on what these African-American jurors may have done had no place in this court room," he added, saying it "smacked of prejudice."

"It was improper, it was not right," he said. Same could be said of slitting your ex's throat or hiring thugs to rob a memorabilia dealer, but no matter.

State prosecutors denied the two jurors had been unfairly excluded. The court will rule on the appeal of O.J. Simpson 's conviction at a later date.

With wife Elin Nordegren in China with their kids, Tiger has been playing some golf and relaxing with his friends in his home near Orlando, Fla.

Oh, and hanging with that beautiful Elin look-alike again, according to new reports suggesting that the beautiful blonde clone was in his cart.

That's not an attempt to sound dirty, she was supposedly in a golf cart with him is all - the second sighting of Woods with the same woman.

Take this story for what it is - no photos, no named sources, and pure hearsay - but it's worth noting that similar reports have surfaced lately.

Tiger, who has reportedly been told by his lawyers that there is no dating allowed, and his new "friend" didn't touch but seemed affectionate.

Tiger Woods: Secretly moving on with Elin 2.0?

“He hit some balls on the driving range while she sat in the cart,” an eyewitness said. “Then he took a break and sat next to her in the cart."

“They were chatting and obviously comfortable with each other. She was laughing at everything he said and he looked completely relaxed."

Eventually friends joined Tiger and he played a round. As for his mystery girl? “She hung around,” said the witness. “It looked very natural.”

News of a Tiger Woods divorce is expected any time as he and Elin are leading separate lives and are barely on speaking terms, if at all.

Chances are dalliances with Elin look-alikes won't help matters.

Miley Performance

What a letdown.

So UNhot

Three ladies that refuse to go away (for better or worse).

Thank you, Miley Cyrus.

Over the last couple weeks, THG has gone to great lengths to explain why we're so disappointed in your decision to become just another cliched pop star who tries way too hard to be provocative and edgy.

We've also called you out on your ridiculous, pompous attitude. Honestly, writing about you so often can be downright exhausting! That's why we're so grateful for your absurd comments to Access Hollywood this week.

They're so laughable, they require almost no editorializing on our part. We can just print your own words and leave it to your brain-washed fans to somehow defend them.

Attempt to Be Edgy

Miley on stage in a tiny tank top and short shorts is akin to Zac playing a high school basketball player for a movie role? DISCUSS!

Asked about the criticism her attire has faced, Miley told Billy Bush:

"I love Zac Efron, but what’s he selling? He’s gorgeous, he’s hot, I don’t go see his movie because I’m like, ‘He’s such a fantastic actor.’ He’s a great actor, but he’s hot.

"He’s just not in a leotard with his legs out. He has his shirt off. So what’s the difference? In High School Musical, he’s in basketball shorts and his cutoff tank top and all the girls are dying... It just isn’t as obvious when guys do it."

Yes, Miley Cyrus just said there's a double standard because she gets flak for wearing skimpy outfits on stage, while no one says anything negative about Zac Efron wearing a basketball jersey in a movie.

Miley then continued to make absolutely no sense, while simultaneously praising her own work ethic: "For girls, it’s always going to be harder. That’s not an excuse, it just means we have to work harder.”

WTF is she talking about? She has to work harder... for what? To be taken seriously as an artist? This is a crazy idea, but perhaps she should simply wear normal clothing, not simulate same-sex kisses and let her music speak for itself if she's concerned about her reputation.

Having been cleared in the ransacking of his apartment last winter, Hailey Glassman is taking Jon Gosselin to court over legal fees she says he owes her.

Jon accused her of breaking into his Upper West Side pad in N.Y. City, but she was exonerated after a police investigation concluded she was not at fault.

Rather than let bygones be bygones, of course, Jon’s ex says she wants to bleed him dry and plead her case in court - and publicly, on TV's Judge Judy.

"I want to take him on Judge Judy and make him pay my lawyer’s fees,” Hailey told Radar Online. “He tried to frame me [for his apartment break-in]."

"Really, it was him setting me up.”

Hailey Glassman, Jon Gosselin Picture

Jon and Hailey in happier times last summer.

Back in December, Jon accused Hailey of breaking into his NYC apartment last December and claimed she stole several his belongings including the TV.

The break-in was ultimately never solved. Radar cites sources who say Jon Gosselin staged the burglary as a stunt, but he was never charged either.

“Anyone else in my position would go for the jugular. He could have ruined my life trying to frame me for selfish reasons. Now he’s going to pay for it.”

Hailey also claims Jon owes her $200,000 and that he has a two-inch package. These claims have not been substantiated, but we totally believe her.

Earlier this week, a video surfaced from last summer, showing Jon Gosselin stoned out of his mind with Hailey in France. Ahh, those were the days.

It's official: Breaking Dawn will be split into two movies.

But what will those movies be like? In a new interview with a French magazine, Robert Pattinson jokes about making them "totally hardcore" and "hav­ing to ban [the film] for peo­ple under 16.”

Don't worry, folks, he's kidding.

On Set

But the actor, seen above and below on the set of Water for Elephants, is serious about how much sexier this final installment of the Twilight Saga is when compared to the first three.

After all - SPOILER ALRERT!!! - Edward and Bella cross a major line in the book. Says Pattinson:

“It’s going to be inter­est­ing. The story goes in direc­tions so dif­fer­ent and I’m curi­ous what it will turn out like... We get mar­ried, sleep together... All the ten­sion from the three pre­vi­ous films is resolved in Break­ing Dawn.

"Can you imag­ine if they decided to go full out and Twi­light sud­denly became this totally hard­core series for adults with nude scenes?"

We're guessing all of THG's female readers could imagine that, yes. Do you ladies need some time alone right now?

There are a couple interesting tidbits from the interview Megan Fox gives in the latest issue of Interview.

For starters, she talks to fellow actor Zach Galifanakis in it. For another thing... she cradles a naked mannequin, while donning a black bob, for an unusual photo spread in the magazine. See for yourself:

Strange Photo

Fox actually comes across as more mature and grounded than usual in the feature. Asked about her comparison of director Michael Bay to Hitler, she admitted:

“In the past, I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality. So I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life. So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret.”

The actress, of course, has been replaced in Transformers 3 by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. But many critics believe this will help Megan's career if she uses the opportunity to branch off and take on more layered roles.

She'll next appear in this summer's Jonah Hex.

Different Side of Megan

This week on The Bachelorette, Hunter Wagner was unnerved by cameras, choked hard core on his big date with Ali Fedotowsky and did not receive a rose.

Of course, Justin Rego hijacking some of his one-on-one time was partially to blame. Hunter dished on that incident and more in an interview with People.

Here's what he had to say about being betrayed by Rated R, as well as whether Ali will ultimately choose no one as some Bachelorette spoilers suggest ...

Stage fright: "People say the cameras disappear after awhile, but I was shutting down and unable to be myself. I was disappointed I couldn’t open up."

On Rated R swooping in: "I was pretty shocked. I had no idea. He was gone for a couple of hours and I asked where he was. He said he was sleeping."

"I tried to get to know him and was one of the few that didn’t give him a hard time for being a wrestler. So for him to do that, I felt upset and betrayed."

  • Hunter Wagner Photo
  • Bachelorette Ali

All those roses and none for Hunter. So sad.

"It took the fire away from our date. Ali wasn’t fully into it because Justin spent time with her. Do I blame her? No. Justin was the one who trekked over."

"[Justin's] entire personality changed with cameras around. He got more cheesy. He talked about how he was looking at the same mountains as Ali was."

On loyalty between the guys: "We all had an agreement at first that we wouldn’t step on each other’s toes or talk bad about each other to Ali."

"But that has started breaking apart and it has become more of a cutthroat game. I didn’t know the weatherman went to Ali and ratted on Craig M."

On the early frontrunners: "I love [Roberto Martinez]. There’s a handful of guys that would be perfect for Ali like Kirk, Roberto, Chris L., Jesse."

On whether she will end up single: "If she didn’t find the person she saw herself with for the rest of her life, then I can see her not picking anyone."

"I don’t think she’d pick someone just to pick someone. She let me go because there wasn’t anything there. She would do the same with the final two."
