USA Gymnastics Head Kerry Perry Resigns Amid Pressure Over Sexual Abuse Scandal

Kerry Perry, who was appointed president and CEO of USA Gymnastics at the beginning of the year to guide the struggling organization through a sexual abuse scandal involving national team doctor Larry Nassar, has resigned, effective immediately.

In a letter to its members posted on its website on Tuesday morning, Karen Golz, chair of the USA Gymnastics board of directors, said: “I am writing to tell you that USA Gymnastics President and CEO Kerry Perry informed our Board of Directors last night that she will resign effective immediately. On behalf of the board, I want to thank Kerry for her leadership under very difficult circumstances.”

Perry was brought in by previous board members who were in place during the many years that Nassar is accused of sexually abusing hundreds of gymnasts and athletes, from those he saw at his offices in Michigan State University to members of national, world and Olympic teams. The athletes say they were abused both at the national training center as well as in hotel rooms during competitions. He is currently serving an up to 175 year prison sentence in Michigan for sexual abuse charges.

Perry’s ouster was made more likely after U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) CEO Sarah Hirshland questioned Perry’s response to the concerns of survivors. Hirshland said to USA Today Sports it was “time to consider making adjustments in the leadership.” USA Gymnastics, as well as the USOC, still face lawsuits by many gymnasts, including members of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic teams, for failing to protect them from Nassar.

They maintain that they reported Nassar’s abuse to USA Gymnastics well before he was fired in 2015, but that the organization failed to immediately report the abuse to law enforcement.

Although many of the board members and other people in leadership positions at USAG during Nassar’s tenure either resigned or were fired, many survivors continued to question Perry’s lack of firm leadership and reluctance to take responsibility for the scandal and USAG’s role in it. Last week, Perry appointed Mary Lee Tracy as head development coach for the women’s elite team, a decision immediately criticized by the sexual abuse survivors, including Olympian Aly Raisman, who noted that Tracy had publicly supported Nassar even after many had already come forward accusing him of sexual abuse. Three days later, Tracy said on social media that she was asked by USAG to resign after attempting to contact Raisman.

Throughout her nine-month tenure, Perry only addressed the media once about the Nassar scandal, at a press conference held during the U.S. National Championships in August. Survivors, including Kyla Ross and Madison Kocian, the latest Olympians to come forward reporting sexual abuse by Nassar, say they have not received any support or apology from Perry or the federation. USAG maintains they are not permitted to speak to the survivors who are still in litigation with the organization.

Perry did terminate USAG’s relationship with Bela and Martha Karolyi, both of whom served as the women’s elite team national coordinator. She also cancelled USAG’s previous agreement to purchase the Karolyi ranch, which had been named as the national training center by her predecessor, Steve Penny. But the decision to cancel the monthly training sessions at the ranch came after Olympian Simone Biles tweeted last January about her abuse at the facility, and her reluctance to continue training there. USAG also has a new Athlete Task Force which is supposed to provide athletes with more access to leadership at the organization, but no Nassar survivors are part of the group.

Raisman and others have been vocal about the need for a complete change at the organization. Members of the gymnastics community have taken to social media in the wake of Perry’s departure, noting that people directly involved with covering up for Nassar remain at the organization, including chief operating officer Ron Gallimore, who the Indianapolis Star reported helped to provide cover stories for why Nassar was no longer working with USAG.

USAG appointed a management committee to run the federation as it conducts a search for a new CEO.

Melania Trump Destroys Rudy Giuliani For Saying She Trusts The Donald In Stormy Daniels’ Cheating Scandal

It is a case of she said, he said between Rudy Giuliani and Melania Trump and the bizarre confusion has many believing that the president might have had an affair with porn Stormy Daniels.

The Donald’s attorney and mouthpiece, Giuliani, recently did an interview with CNN while at the Capital Market conference in Tel Aviv where he bashed Stormi because she “sells her body for exploitation.”

Giuliani, who seems to have forgotten that First Lady Melania posed nude on several occasions, went on to say that Stormi is not credible.

The former mayor of New York said: “Yes, I respect porn stars. Don’t you respect porn stars? Or do you think that porn stars desecrate women? Do you think that porn stars don’t respect women? And therefore sell their bodies. So yes, I respect all human beings. I even have to respect, you know, criminals. But I’m sorry I don’t respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman and as a person and isn’t going to sell her body for sexual exploitation.”

He added: “So Stormy, you want to bring a case, let me cross-examine you. Because the business you’re in entitles you to no degree of giving your credibility any weight. And secondly, explain to me how she could be damaged. I mean, she has no reputation. If you’re going to sell your body for money, you just don’t have a reputation. Maybe old-fashioned, I don’t know.”

Giuliani went on to reveal that he spoke to Melania about the affair and “she believes her husband, and she knows it’s untrue.”

Melania, via her spokperson, called Giuliani a liar.

Reporter Maggie Haberman shared: “Yikes. I asked @FLOTUS spokeswoman @StephGrisham45 about Giuliani saying that she believes her husband re Stormy Daniels. Response: “I don’t believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani.”

At this point, even the people who support the Trump family are bashing Giuliani for repeatedly putting his foot in his mouth.

The president should have known that “Mr one-state strategy Giuliani” is prone to gaffes.

Tristan Thompson Booed During Baskeball Game Amid Cheating Scandal

Not the warmest welcome. Tristan Thompson wasn’t exactly well received during his last basketball game of the season before playoffs on Wednesday, April 11, after he cheated on girlfriend Khloé Kardashian.

The Cleveland Cavaliers player, 27, was booed and jeered by attendees as his team went head-to-head against the New York Knicks at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

Thompson’s name wasn’t announced when he came into the game in the first quarter, but as soon as his face was shown on the big screen there were audible boos. “Everyone in the stadium could hear it,” an attendee tells Us. “Tristan must have heard, but didn’t change his expression.”

One fan was also shown in a photo on social media holding up a “We Love Khloe” sign.

Thompson made headlines on Tuesday, April 10, after the Daily Mail published photos of him locking lips with a mystery brunette, who Twitter users identified as Lani Blair, at a NYC club on Saturday, April 7. The pair were photographed arriving at NYC’s Four Seasons hotel together in the early hours of Sunday, April 8, and she left the following day with a Louis Vuitton overnight bag.

A source exclusively told Us Weekly that Kardashian, 33, was blindsided upon discovering that Thompson, with whom she is expecting a daughter, had been unfaithful. “Khloé was at their home in Cleveland when she found out. She is shell-shocked and beside herself,” an insider said of the nine-month-pregnant reality star, who is “in total disbelief.”

Another pal close to the Revenge Body host added: “Khloé knew going into it that Tristan was an NBA player who would be on the road and facing lots of temptations. She heard the noise and knew what that was all about, but she felt that Tristan was different. They were always FaceTiming and in constant communication. He made her feel on top of the world and unlike any man she has been with. She trusted him.”

Us broke the news in September 2017 that the E! personality and Thompson are expecting their first child. She confirmed the news three months later and revealed the baby’s sex in March.

The Academy Awards Scandal That First Got PwC Its Job Counting Oscars Votes

In 2017, the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), which oversees vote counting and results distribution at the Academy Awards, caused a scandal for mixing up the envelopes that contained the names of the Best Picture winners.

It was another Oscars controversy that got PwC working with the Academy Awards in the first place.

The story took place in the very early years of the Academy Awards, in the 1930s, when there were rumors that Warner Brothers head honchos told the Academy members from their studio not to vote to nominate Bette Davis for Best Actress for her critically acclaimed role in Of Human Bondage, the film adaptation of the W. Somerset Maugham novel made by rival studio RKO.

At the time, Hollywood actors were usually tied to a studio, and Davis belonged to Warner Brothers. But in her memoir A Lonely Life, she described the early roles the studio gave her as “horrors.” She didn’t have her breakout role until 1934’s Of Human Bondage, and everyone was very aware that the movie wasn’t made by her home studio.

“It is an interesting fact that most people believe that Of Human Bondage was my first picture, although I had made twenty-one films before it,” she writes in her memoir A Lonely Life. “Two years of posing as Miss Fourth of July and Little Miss Clothes Horse for the fan magazines—two years of hard work and indignities and a rival studio, not Warners, gave me my true beginning.”

Before that role, she had demanded repeatedly that studio exec Jack Warner loan her out, and he eventually gave in “because she was driving him crazy,” Monica Roxanne Sandler, author of an article on politics at the early Oscars, which was published in the journal Media Industries in 2015, tells TIME. Sandler explains that it’s thought that Warner relented as if to say, “you’re not a big star, so go do this stupid film.”

To Warner’s surprise, however, the movie did well. Really well.

The 26-year-old starred as the waitress-turned-prostitute Mildred Rogers, a role that TIME described as notable for being “in the first part she has ever had which has required more than handsome clothes and an enigmatic expression,” in its 1934 review. LIFE magazine called it “probably the best performance ever recorded on the screen by a U.S. actress.

RKO Radio Pictures—Getty ImagesBette Davis in a scene from the film Of Human Bondage, 1934.

According to Ed Sikov, author of Dark Victory: The Life of Bette Davis, these rave reviews about Davis’ success with another studio humiliated Jack Warner, and he felt pressured to give her better roles, even though he really wanted to punish her by giving her mediocre roles.

Based on the reviews, she seemed like a shoe-in for an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. She did her own PR to promote her role in the movie, including for the Best Actress nomination, “in a way most actors hadn’t done before,” Sandler tells TIME.

But she didn’t get an Oscar nomination, leading to backlash over the perceived snub.

One article in Photoplay, one of the first U.S. fan magazines, quoted a postman as saying “My son and I have been talking about this Academy passing up Bette Davis. It’s a darn outrage . . . and I think Photoplay ought to give ’em the devil!’” Looking back at that time, the American actor Joan Blondell once reflected, “when they left Bette out, we all began taking a closer look and decided, ‘Hey, something’s rotten in Beverly Hills.’” The Academy believes that uproar marked “the first time there had been such a negative reaction to the selections.”

Rumors started spreading that producers had interfered, which got actors even more fired up because the 1930s was a period where creative labor was just getting unionized. Davis joined the cries of conspiracy, some of which Sandler says were rumored to have been spread by her publicist.

“My bosses helped them by sending instructions to all their personnel to vote for somebody else,” Davis claimed in her memoir A Lonely Life. “My failure to receive the award created such a scandal that gave me more publicity that if I had won it. Syndicated columnists spread the word ‘foul’ and the public stood behind me like an army. Not since that decision in 1934 was so cavalier a verdict allowed to take place. Price Waterhouse was asked to step in the next year to count the votes, which they have done ever since.”

Before the firm was hired, votes had been counted internally by people who were involved with the Academy and thus might have a vested interest in the result. The secret envelopes were added in 1941, after a reporter broke an embargo on the results. (Price Waterhouse later became PricewaterhouseCoopers through a merger.)

In an interview with Playboy published in July 1982, Davis added that, “All of the studios used to divide the prizes up, really. They’re much fairer today than they were.”

Davis did get a nomination the following year, for the Warner Brothers picture Dangerous, but she took to the streets — well, the red carpet — to express her dissatisfaction, intentionally sporting an unflattering dress that resembled a domestic’s uniform as a form of protest. Male winners like John Ford and Dudley Nichols also protested that year, as part of their unions’ push for fairer contracts.

When Davis won the prize, she saw it as only a “consolation prize” and was unhappy. (She had reason to think so: TIME called the movie “a second-rate picture with first-rate trimmings.”) “The following day, she walked out of Warner Brothers,” says Sandler. “she was trying to break her contract, it wasn’t successful.”

Hulton Archive—Getty ImagesActor Bette Davis and producer Jack Warner, one of the founders of Warner Bros. Pictures, hold Davis’s Oscar for Best Actress for <i>Dangerous</i> at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California, on March 5, 1936.

She felt demoralized. As she wrote in her memoir, “There was no change in the Warner attitude after all this acclaim. I was made to trudge through the professional swamp at Warners brimming over with frustration and rage…I might just as well have been any of the stock girls under contract…they still didn’t know that I had no desire to be just a glamour girl.”

But Davis would get revenge over those who snubbed her. In 1941, she became the Academy’s first female president at just 33 years old, though her brief tenure was controversial. (“As the only woman so honored, I was frankly proud. But it was just this pride that shortened the tenure of my office,” she wrote in her memoir.)

And her protests didn’t affect the studio’s ability to sell tickets. LIFE put her on the cover of its Jan. 23, 1939, issue because she was “Warner Bros.’ top box-office star.” And a decade after Of Human Bondage came out, Davis and fellow actresses would be further vindicated. After Olivia de Havilland sued Warner Brothers over similar contract issues, a court ruled that contracts limiting an actor to one studio were illegal.

That change introduced the agent-centric system that remains in play today. And for the envelope-counting, PricewaterhouseCoopers — despite the snags along the way — remains in play too.

Reese Witherspoon suffered from PTSD after the Harvey Weinstein scandal

According to Oprah…

Words by Chloe Pitman

Oprah Winfrey sat down for an emotional conversation with actress Salma Hayek as part of her Super Soul Sunday Conversation special, during which it was revealed how greatly Harvey Weinstein had affected Reese Witherspoon.

Oprah claims that her A Wrinkle In Time co-star Reese showed signs of post traumatic stress disorder, that included crying at the mention of Weinstein’s name and not being able to sleep, while they were on set.

‘Everyone, including Reese – I’ve said this to her – was acting like, I was seeing some of the girls at my school behave, who were suffering from PTSD,’ Winfrey told Salma Hayek. ‘Everybody was acting like they were afraid and they were having the conversation.’

She continued: ‘I remember Reese saying, “Oh God, this is just so upsetting. And someone mentions his name, I start tearing up. And every time I hear someone else speak, it just causes me to be upset and I haven’t slept in two days,” So I said, “Jeez, you guys are suffering from PTSD. Did something happen to you?” Nobody said anything at the time.’

Just last October, Reese Witherspoon announced in an emotional speech that at the age of 16, she too had been a victim of sexual harassment and assault.

The post Reese Witherspoon suffered from PTSD after the Harvey Weinstein scandal appeared first on Marie Claire.

Nick Carter’s accuser inspired to speak by Harvey Weinstein scandal

OHMYGOSSIP — Nick Carter’s sexual assault accuser was inspired to tell her story by the women who had come forward to speak about Harvey Weinstein.
Melissa Schuman, 33, claimed earlier this month that the Backstreet Boys star had forced her into having sex with him at his home in 2002, and has now revealed her decision to finally speak out came as a result of the multiple “brave” women who have alleged they were sexually harassed by disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.
Speaking during an episode of ‘The Dr. Oz Show’ which will air on Friday (01.12.17), the former Dream singer said: “Well since the Harvey Weinstein allegations came out, it was a big trigger for me. I started to notice that I had kind of suppressed a lot of the memories for years with all these other brave women coming forward.
“I started to notice I had a lot of anxiety manifesting in my body. That was really making it hard for me to just carry on like every single day it was really impacting me mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.”
Melissa previously took to her personal blog to allege that Nick performed oral sex on her without her consent and then made her perform a reciprocal act on him.
Following that, Melissa – who was a virgin at the time – then claimed that Nick took her to his bedroom and had sex with her without her consent, with her repeatedly telling the pop star that she was saving herself for marriage.
She claimed the assault took place back in 2002 after he invited her to his Santa Monica home for a “casual hangout”, and admitted that she willingly shared a kiss with Nick after a “few shots” but did not want things to go any further.
Shortly after her blog post was published, Nick, 37, issued a statement in which he vehemently denied the allegations, and insisted anything that happened between them which was sexual was consensual.
He said: “I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman’s accusations. Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual. We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally.
“This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, nearly two decades later. It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm.”

At This Point In His Presidency, Obama’s Biggest Scandal Was Using Dijon Mustard

As President Donald Trump continues to erode American democracy, you can at least take comfort in knowing he isn’t using Dijon mustard on his burgers.

In May 2009, Fox News host Sean Hannity devoted airtime on his show to a frank, honest conversation about whether then-President Barack Obama was capable of leading the country. His biggest issue was that America could not trust a president that uses Dijon mustard on his food.

“Take a look at [Obama] ordering his burger with a very special condiment,” Hannity said on his program at the time, before showing a clip of POTUS at a Virginia restaurant.

“I’m gonna have your very basic cheddar cheeseburger, medium-well,” Obama told the cashier. “I just want mustard, no ketchup. You got a spicy mustard or something like that? Dijon mustard or something?”

“I hope you enjoyed that fancy burger,” Hannity shot back.

Eight years later, the U.S. now has a president who has bragged about sexually assaulting women, is accused of colluding with Russia to help him win an election, golfs more than he leads, ignores climate change evidence, and petulantly shoves world leaders when he doesn’t get to be the center of attention.

Oh, he also eats his steaks well-done with ketchup.  

It’s unclear why Hannity’s investigation never led to the removal of President Obama, but at least the American people can finally rest assured that these types of scandals are finally over.

Ed Helms Destroys Rolling Stone’s Rape Story Scandal During UVA Valedictory Speech

“Never let others define you, define yourselves.”

So began a seemingly comedic speech at the University of Virginia’s Valedictory Exercises by actor Ed Helms on Friday. In front of a large audience, the comedian peppered in jokes about Netflix and student loans before turning a harsh eye on the Rolling Stone rape story scandal, which has drawn widespread condemnation and lawsuits against the magazine.

“It has been said that a rolling stone gathers no moss,” Helms said. “I would add that sometimes a rolling stone also gathers no verifiable facts or even the tiniest morsels of journalistic integrity.”

“Rolling Stone tried to define you this year,” Helms said. “As a result, not only was this community thrown deep into turmoil, but the incredibly important struggle to address sexual violence on campuses nationwide was suddenly more confusing than ever and needlessly set back.”

The speech comes a month after Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism called Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s story “A Rape on Campus” a “journalistic failure” — a move that prompted Rolling Stone to retract the entire piece.

“The failure encompassed reporting, editing, editorial supervision and fact-checking,” the authors of the review said.

During his speech, Helms also delved into the strikingly negative news coverage of the Baltimore riots, chastising many major networks for their portrayal of the protestors as “thugs,” noting “Rolling Stone’s rush to define is just the tip of the iceberg.”

“The reductive labels aren’t helping and we better stop applying them, because there are a lot of Americans in a lot of pain,” Helms said. “We try to define others with simple labels because it makes the world easier to understand.”

“This community didn’t fall for the fallacy that just because Rolling Stone was wrong everything here must be perfectly peachy,” he continued. “You all had the courage to understand you can be outraged at Rolling Stone and still ask yourselves hard questions: When sexual violence does occur in our community, do we have the best possible protocols and resources available to our students? And UVA is charging forward to answer those questions and you should be proud of that.”

‘Scandal’ Star Bellamy Young Was Initially Only Cast For A Short, Three-Episode Arc

First Lady Mellie Grant’s intense personality and sharp wit has been an integral part of endless plot twists on ABC’s “Scandal,” but the character was intended to have only a short stint on the show.

Actress Bellamy Young joined HuffPost Live on Friday and said that showrunner Shonda Rhimes originally planned to break off Mellie’s rocky relationship with President Fitzgerald Grant, which would have left the character with a mere three-episode storyline. She explained to host Alyona Minkovski:

It’s a story about Fitz and Olivia, so I think that it was ancillary in their minds, initially. I just had two lines in the pilot and then when we got picked up, Shonda went around the table and started telling everyone what their arc would be over the first seven episodes… She got to me and… she said, ‘So I want to write a presidential divorce and I think you’ll be here about three episodes.’ And I was dying inside, but I was trying to keep smiling because I didn’t want to disappoint her.

Luckily, Young’s character made an impression on the writers, who decided to keep her around.

“Somehow they just found Mellie’s currency as a lever, as a wedge, and they started writing for it. And it’s been the most amazing ride,” Young said.

Jon Stewart And ‘The Daily Show’ Are Ready For The NEXT Nude Photo Scandal

Some people are blaming the victims of the Hollywood nude photo hacking scandal for taking the pictures in the first place. But on Wednesday night’s “Daily Show,” host Jon Stewart fired back with the perfect response.

“I get it. These women were asking for it,” Stewart said. “It’s like they said to the Boston Strangler’s victims: ‘If you don’t want to get strangled, you shouldn’t have had a neck.'”

With that, Stewart turned to Senior Technology Correspondent Jordan Klepper, who’s clearly ready for the hackers: He appeared completely nude with his (hopefully not real) bank account and password information scrawled across his body.

“I’m taking back my sexual power,” Klepper declared. “You want celebrity naughty bits? Here they are: DING DING DING DING DING. Dinner time, you sick fucks!”

Check out Stewart’s look at the story in the clip above… and see more of Klepper than necessary below.
