Safe to say Gloria Allred was unmoved by Kanye West's visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live. The famed victims' rights attorney is calling the rapper out as a shameful disgrace.

After 'Ye threatened the paparazzi during his epic late night rant, strongly implying that he'll keep using force if he deems it necessary, Gloria was fuming.

Allred is representing photographer Danny Ramos, the paparazzo who has sued the rapper alleging assault, battery, negligence and violation of civil rights.

Kanye claimed self-defense in that LAX airport altercation, but Allred isn't buying it, and cites remarks by Kanye on Jimmy Kimmel as further proof of her point:

“Mr. West made it clear that he thinks he has the right to attack anyone that antagonizes him by asking him a question he does not like. He thinks that paparazzi are fair game."

For all his ridiculous muster, Donald Trump didn't actually break any news with his supposed Barack Obama bombshell today.

But Gloria Allred may have uncovered something sordid about Mitt Romney, and it's all based on a testimony the candidate many years ago involving Staples founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife, Maureen.

Mitt Romney Rallies

According to TMZ sources, Maureen alleges that Romney lied under oath when he told a judge Staples was worth noting, labeling the company's stock as "overvalued" and concluding that he doesn't place a "great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future."

Mitt Romney was reportedly involved in the messy divorce of one of his key supporters, and the Boston Globe is going to court in a bid to unseal its case file.

The divorce was between Staples co-founder Tom Stemberg and his first wife, Maureen. The legal battle lasted for years and was very far from amicable.

Romney gave both a deposition and testified in the trial ... and the Globe got a tip that there was "juicy information about Romney" in the sealed documents.

Any guesses on who gave that tip?

John Doe Number One, whose accusations of sexual assault against John Travolta made major headlines before his case fell apart and he dropped the lawsuit, apparently isn't throwing in the legal towel  just yet. He's hired Gloria Allred, according to reports.

"I represent John Doe Number One," Allred confirmed to People.

"Mr. Doe's lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice which means that he is still legally entitled to file another lawsuit against John Travolta if he chooses."

"We are in the process of conferring with him regarding the next steps, which he may wish to take. Our client and our firm has no further comment."

Allred has a long history of taking on sexual misconduct cases against A-list celebs, including those against Tiger Woods and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The John Travolta accuser alleged in a $2 million lawsuit filed May 4 that the actor exposed himself and acted inappropriately while receiving a massage.

His lawyer, Okorie Okorocha, dropped him after Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, offered evidence that suggested Travolta was in New York at the time.

A lawsuit filed by Okorocha on behalf of a second masseur, based in Atlanta an alleging similar (if not more graphic) behavior, remains active.

Singer has vehemently denied the allegations as "false" and "absurd," adding, "People are going to come forward to get their 15 minutes of fame."

Sarah Tressler, a 30-year-old reporter who was fired by the Houston Chronicle because of her second job as a stripper, has filed a formal complaint against her former newspaper employer, alleging sex discrimination.

Tressler was working as a society and general assignment reporter for the Chronicle and writing an anonymous blog entitled "Diary of an Angry Stripper" when another paper, the Houston Press, revealed her part-time profession.

She said the major newspaper fired her "because of a claim that I did not disclose on my employment application that I worked as an exotic dancer."

"I feel that women should not be denied other employment because they have worked as an exotic dancer," said Tressler, in response to her dismissal.

Tressler has hired high-profile attorney Gloria Allred and filed a charge of gender discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Allred said Tressler was stripping as an independent contractor, not an employee, so she had no reason to list exotic dancing on her job application.

"Most exotic dancers are female, and therefore terminating an employee because they had previously been an exotic dancer would have an adverse impact on women, since it is a female dominated occupation," Allred said.

A new woman alleging sexual harassment by Herman Cain will break her silence at a news conference ... with powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred in tow, obviously.

The embattled Republican presidential candidate has been accused of harassment by two women who worked at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

Herman Cain was president of the trade group at the time. The women both received settlements, which they can't talk about as per the terms of the settlements.

Politico has alleged that Cain sexually harassed the women.

Now, a third woman, who will be the first to go public on Monday, will say she sought Cain's help with an employment issue and was allegedly sexually harassed.

Allred and her client will discuss, in detail, what she alleges occurred with Cain, the Tea Party darling who tried, and failed, to tamp down the scandal last week.

Saturday night after a debate with Newt Gingrich, Cain refused to answer questions about the allegations, saying "We are getting back on message, end of story."

"Read all of the other accounts. Read all of the other accounts where everything has been answered in the story. We're getting back on message, okay?"

Okay. But he may not be able to determine that after today.
