    The pop star, formerly of the girl group Dream, accused Carter of rape. She opens up to Amy Zimmerman about the harassment, doxxing, and industry silence she’s endured since. ===================================================================== When she was 12, Melissa Schuman earned a place in Dream, a girl band that made its mark in the early aughts with hits like “This Is Me” and “He Loves U Not.” None other than Diddy signed Dream to Bad Boy Records, and they joined a pantheon of pop groups that were peaking in the 2000s.

    FLASHBACK: That Time Omarosa Was Fired from the Clinton White House Omarosa Manigault Newman is no stranger to failing in The White House. She became well known by television viewers of NBC’s hit show “The Apprentice” with Donald Trump. Now, after being let go for personal issues, she’s using that closeness to President Trump to make millions by calling her former boss a racist and a liar. She made the situation worse by illegally recording herself insecure parts of the White House. (RELATED: Omarosa Could be in Legal Trouble Over Secret White House Recordings).

    Piers Morgan is recalling the moment Omarosa Manigault Newman allegedly propositioned him for sex — and making multiple scathing claims about his former Celebrity Apprentice castmate. A day after the journalist and television personality first accused Manigault Newman, 44, of propositioning him for sex to win the reality show — they both competed on season 1 — in a column for the Daily Mail, Morgan, 52, further detailed their off-camera interactions during a candid sit-down interview on Wednesday’s The Talk, when he called her “unbelievable.” “Day one, she sidles up to me. I’ve never met this woman before. She comes...

    **SNIP** “One night I confronted him very calm about a lie he had just told me straight to my face. What happened next was a rage that I had never witnessed to that magnitude. He was becoming a person I had never seen before. The next morning, he came into the room I was sleeping in. I was laying across the bed with my headphones on, listening to podcast on my phone. He said he was about to leave town for the weekend and told me to take the trash out. Given the explosive outrage that occurred the night before,...

    Maude Gorman, the Massachusetts beauty queen who gave up her crown over what she called an insensitive #MeToo movement skit, had her finishes in ultramarathon races vacated after race officials caught her cheating.

Her decision gained attention from media across the country. Gorman, a Hingham resident, posted several pictures of her training on social media, and has placed high in ultramarathons. As reported by the blog Turtleboysports, Gorman has been disqualified as...

    Since Her Initial Disqualification she had been removed from 3 more events, kicked off of The USA Skyrunning Team, and lost a sponsorship More details have emerged regarding Maude Gorman’s racing history. It has become clear that her racing accomplishments were a lie. She stood on podiums seemingly oblivious to the fact that she stole from those standing next to her or those that were bumped off entirely. I have been in contact with officials from all of these races. The evidence was clear, and their actions were decisive. I received an email on Thursday morning from the race’s timer,...

    In an interview with the Times meant to promote her upcoming Greece-set reality show, Lindsay Lohan made her thoughts known on the #MeToo movement, thoughts that underline a recurring problem with how we talk about those who come forward to report harassment and abuse. Despite opening by saying that she “[didn’t] really have anything to say,” and that she didn’t think she could speak on something she hadn’t experienced, Lohan went on to do just that. “I’m going to really hate myself for saying this,” Lohan told interviewer Simon Mills, “but I think by women speaking against all these things,...

    In the summer of 2008, Bill Hybels stood in front of thousands of pastors and other church leaders gathered at Willow Creek Community Church and admitted his megachurch had failed. “We made a mistake,” he told the crowd gathered for the 2008 Global Leadership Summit (GLS). A detailed Willow study had found that the church had helped many people find new faith in Jesus, but had failed to teach them how to practice the spiritual disciplines needed to grow their faith. He vowed the megachurch would do be better in the future. Ten years later, Willow Creek’s leaders confessed even...

    The likes of Kirsten Gillibrand parade themselves as paragons of avenging feminist virtue in calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign. But the Morning Joe crew sees another motive behind the Democrat’s move to force Franken out: “cynical politics.” Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, and Willie Geist all made similar points: the move to defenestrate Franken is really about Democrats trying to give themselves the high ground on the issue of sexual misconduct. The Dems’ real target is Roy Moore. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she didn't know what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand "was trying to say" when she suggested this week former President Bill Clinton should have stepped down over his affair with Monica Lewinsky that tarnished his presidency. "I don't exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say," Clinton told host Rita Cosby on WABC Radio in an exclusive interview Friday while promoting her new book "What Happened." When asked if she could have been more supportive of women who claimed to have been sexually harassed by her husband, Clinton said each...

    On Friday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC show’s hosts and guests spent most of their broadcast mourning the announced resignation of Minnesota Senator Al Franken from Congress in the wake of over half a dozen allegations of sexual assault against him. In a stunning display of hypocrisy, MSNBC’s liberal morning pundits went to extraordinary lengths to cast doubt on the women who have accused Franken of sexual misconduct, violating the network’s own oft-repeated standards for Republican and conservative politicians.New York Times writer Bari Weiss was even brought on to complain about how “some innocent people are going to go down” as...

    A state of unrestrained political corruption is known as a kleptocracy, literally meaning "rule by thieves." The failure of the #MeToo movement to offer any sincere or legitimate help to women who have actually been sexually harassed is California Legislature with the many harassers who are still employed. In Gov. Jerry Brown’s California, the tail is wagging the dog in state employment, helped along with gross media complicity. Case-in-Point: A state employee falsely accused of harassment by disgruntled subordinates was never allowed his day in court on any of the charges, yet the state paid off one of his accusers...
