Vice President Mike Pence Calls Claims He"s Running For President In 2020 "Laughable & Absurd"!

Mike Pence will NOT be running for president in 2020. The Vice President made this fact abundantly clear after the New York Times suggested he was considering a run for the office. Not only did the Veep drag the report as being "categorically false," but he also hit back by calling the allegations "laughable and absurd."

Nonetheless, Vice President Pence noted on Twitter: My statement regarding the absurd @NYtimes article. pic.twitter.com/htvYSbS2dy — Vice President Pence (@VP) August 6, 2017 Well, there you have it! Although, to be fair, the NYT didn't say out right that Pence was planning to challenge Donald in 2020. Rather they said the VP was "acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago." Still, we have a feeling this report left those working in the Oval Office shaken up. We mean, the Trump administration made sure Kellyanne Conway took shots at the article during her recent appearance on This Week With George Stephanopoulos. After calling the claim "complete fiction," the White House adviser added: "It is absolutely true that the vice president is getting ready for 2020 — for reelection as vice president." Phew. As much as we hate Donald Trump, we're terrified at the idea of Pence becoming Commander-In-Chief. [Image via Dennis Van Tine/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Actresses Accuse CSI Casting Veteran Of Manipulating Aspiring Stars Into Undressing

Another day, another sexual misconduct scandal… On Wednesday, veteran casting associate Andy Henry was exposed by The Hollywood Reporter for manipulating actresses into disrobing during private, paid auditioning sessions. In fact, this behavior got Henry fired from his CSI casting gig and his own firm in 2008, as it was revealed that he used this strategy [...] Another day, another sexual misconduct scandal... On Wednesday, veteran casting associate Andy Henry was exposed by The Hollywood Reporter for manipulating actresses into disrobing during private, paid auditioning sessions. In fact, this behavior got Henry fired from his CSI casting gig and his own firm in 2008, as it was revealed that he used this strategy on up-and-comers seeking costarring roles on the crime drama. Related: Tom Sizemore Dropped From Horror Movie Project Sadly, some women fell for Andy's "coaching technique," as they felt compelled to please him since he was a key way to land entry-level parts. Man, oh man. To make matters worse, since the firing was never publicly disclosed, Henry went on to work on MAJOR motion pictures -- including Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, The Descendants, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Elysium. Tsk, tsk. Thankfully, five women have made the brave decision to come forward to detail their unsavory experiences with Andy. These women became connected thanks to the #MeToo campaign. Understandably, the actresses feel they were preyed upon. And it seems as though Andy thoroughly planned out his manipulation as the ladies' respective encounters with Henry were practically identical. Per the accusers, Henry used the same scene from a 2006 episode of the procedural, where a character struggles with a rare genetic disorder that causes excess hair growth. On meeting the casting professional at Reel Pros, actress Jenny Kern recalled: "His line was, 'It's a really challenging scene and I can tell you can handle it, but it definitely requires more work than what we do here. Do you have any time to stay afterward to push a little harder with [the material]?' I was really flattered." Andy had Jenny perform the scene a few times before suggesting that, in order to achieve "more vulnerability," she should take her bra off. According to Kern, the industry vet became dissatisfied with the situation and "incrementally asked [her] to take [her] clothes off." Jenny eventually complied so that she could get the meeting over with. After manipulating Jenny into her underwear, Andy began to improvise a scene that was highly inappropriate. She continued: "He started saying things, improvising as this detective character: 'I can see your tits,' 'I can see you shave your pussy.' He did it until I finally cried." He ended the meeting by thanking Jenny for her performance. How awful. Tessa Goss had a similar run-in with Andy while at Culver City's acting center ITA. She added: "He prefaced by saying, as he'd playact frustration, running his hands through his hair, 'This is going to seem super-crazy, but don't think it's super-weird.' That he works with actresses all the time. His thing was that [the performance] would feel more authentic if you can feel your nipples against your clothes. I thought, 'I need to get out of here.' But there's also this sick actor part of me that thought, 'I need to get out of here as friends.'" Tessa chose to leave the meeting, as she was pregnant with her third child and not eager to show her baby bump to a stranger. Goss later emailed ITA about Andy's behavior and later received the following reply: "Dear God! Just tell me that no one asked you to disrobe!!!" SMH. Andy's advances left quite the impact on his victims as many began to doubt their talent following the upsetting invitations. Catherine Black, who rebuffed Henry's request at AIA Actor's Studio, shared: "It really planted a seed in my head, that maybe I wasn't good enough. Of, what did I do wrong? It made me feel ashamed." Through AIA, Andy met another victim, whom he allegedly groped. Mandy June Turpin, who claims Henry touched her shoulders and breasts during their session, relayed: "I thought, 'Thank God, somebody said something.' You're afraid to speak up. You're someone without credits. And he went on to work again in the business anyway." Andy also preyed on an intern at the casting firm where he worked, named Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer. Reportedly, Henry offered to give aspiring star Jacqueline Mueller private acting advice back in 2008. Using the same CSI scene, the casting expert advised the intern to take off her bra, a request she followed. When Andy told her to unzip her sweater, Mueller realized the situation had become one of misconduct. Related: Sixth Woman Accuses Roy Moore Of Sexual Assault Jacqueline remembered: "Then he asked me to unzip my sweater. If I'd unzipped it, I would've been topless. I felt disgusted and bamboozled." In order to "loosen" her up, Andy then offered Mueller a glass of whiskey. She quipped: "I don't remember him reaching out to the men in the office to 'help' them." Ugh. Andy has since responded to the allegations with the following statement: "Nine years ago, I tried what I thought was a coaching technique, but which I learned very quickly was foolish and foolhardy. It was brought to light almost immediately, and as you were correctly informed, I was terminated from my employment in 2008 as a result. I was then, and remain to this day, profoundly sorry about these incidents. I took responsibility right away for using nudity as a technique to explore the vulnerability portrayed in a scene, without being cognizant of the potential damage to the human being in the room. I was not aware of the allegations of fondling until now, and do not believe or recall that such a thing happened. I never meant to make anyone feel pressured into doing anything, nor did I ever consciously intend to hurt anyone. My job was gone, my standing in the entertainment community was greatly lowered, and my career options were severely curtailed. I lost my marriage and declared bankruptcy as a result. I was punished for my actions, but I have spent the last nine years rebuilding myself into a person who could never do such a thoughtless and careless thing again. I have formally converted to Judaism, I have dedicated my life to the service of God and to trying to make some repair in this world. And I have striven to live and work every day as honorably and as honestly as possible. I am, again, inexpressibly sorry for the pain that these incidents caused." Looks like someone is REALLY trying to downplay this controversy. Is there a way to fast track his ousting??? [Image via YouTube.].....»»

Miranda Lambert Vows She "Won"t Take Pain For Granted Anymore" AND Straight Up Refuses To Pen A Political Song!

As you may've noticed, the blonde country crooner has done little press for her December released double-album, The Weight of These Wings. That's mainly because, at the time, the Vice singer wasn't ready to get emotional about her failed marriage to Blake Shelton -- especially since she already did that in the LP itself. Video: Cara's Music Video Debut Will Make You Feel Everything Miranda chose to release The Weight of These Wings with little to no media attention after she shut down a prerelease interview with a journalist who asked about her divorce. On that decision, the hitmaker recently explained to Billboard: "I just didn't need to talk about the record. If you want to hear my side of the story or my opinion of what happened, it's all on there. There's no mystery anymore -- take from it what you will." And, boy, is she right! Unsurprisingly, Vice has stood out on the album for its raw power. This likely has something to do with the fact that the 33-year-old wrote the track on the day her divorce news hit the internet. Lambert dished: "I walked in with guns blazing. I just knew one thing: I didn't want a breakup record... I was like, ‘Let's feel it all.' I was ready to have the days where I can't even stand up and the days where I'm celebrating." YAS, kween. Despite being one of the country scene's biggest stars, the Texas native has found her success by being different than the typical country starlet. On her career post-Shelton, the songstress quipped: "I'm not going to try to fit in, but I'm not trying to be an outlaw -- I'm just trying to do me. And if that's carving my own path or making my own lane, then I'll do that." Hear! Hear! Still, it seems as though Miranda has learned a thing or two post her public heartbreak, as she relayed: "I'm more known for my fiery personality and my confidence, but that's not me all the time. I won't look at things ever again in the same light, because different things in your life bring you to a deeper level with yourself. I won't take pain for granted anymore." But the Over You artist is certainly getting her groove back as she spends her days in Nashville surrounded by pals. And, trust us, she does NOT miss her Oklahoma days with The Voice judge. Miranda honestly stated: "I lived in a small town in Oklahoma. I remember I had to write a song for a Dodge RAM commercial. It was hard. I barely got it out, and I was like, ‘Man, I need some fuel. I have to go fall in love with it again.' So Nashville does that for me." Partying aside, Miranda couldn't be more focused on her career and hopes other female artists find their success in the industry. After noting that men dominating country radio "is just a phase," the Nashville Star alum added: "I think there was a time [for women] before, and there will be again, and that doesn't stop any of us. I love country radio when they all play me, and when they don't, I think that sucks." You tell 'em, girl! Although, Miranda doesn't really care what radio thinks anymore as everyone is streaming everything these days. In fact, all Lambert cares about is holding the door "open for the girls coming behind [her]." Shockingly, with all her badassery, the Pistol Annies member has zero plans to get political. Even though she has a platform to make a difference, Miranda shared: "I am a 100 percent believer in not ever using the platform that I've built for anything other than music, because music to me is an escape from your own reality. I don't want to go to a show and hear somebody preach about their opinions... It's so divided [in politics], you can't win anyway -- and what are you winning? For someone to agree with you, and now you've spoken your piece and pissed off many other people, just for one person to go, ‘She's right'? It doesn't do any good." Well, that's a tad disappointing. Then again, not everyone can be Katy Perry and her purposeful pop! Keep doing you, Miranda. Know that we're rooting for you! [Image via Billboard.].....»»

The actress spoke out on Saturday evening, vehemently denying accusations that had been flying around about allegedly disturbing actions undertaken by the casting directors for her film. Related: Brad Pitt Confirms He's "Got Nothing To Hide" The controversy all started when Vanity Fair reported about an audition exercise the film's casting directors allegedly used to weed out impoverished child actors and find their eventual lead: "In order to find their lead, to play young Loung Ung, the casting directors set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism: they put money on the table and asked the child to think of something she needed the money for, and then to snatch it away. The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie." WTF?! That sounds incredibly disturbing, and intense, and also... not true, according to Angelina. Related: Get More Angelina Jolie News HERE The mom and actress sounded off in a statement adamantly refuting that claim, saying: "I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario. The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. I would be outraged myself if this had happened. ... Every measure was taken to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of the children on the film starting from the auditions through production to the present." Furthermore, another source who had knowledge of the movie's casting process reportedly backed up Angelina's statement: the children were aware all they were doing was improvising a scene from the film, and there was no actual money involved. Whew! First They Killed My Father premieres on Netflix this September. [Image via Michael Wright/WENN.].....»»

For that, I am deeply sorry and I apologize. Under the circumstances, I’m going to take a step back from my day-to-day work while I properly deal with this situation.” Women have been sharing accounts of what happened while working at ABC News years ago. “I went up to have a soda and talk and — he just kissed me and grabbed my boobs,” one woman told CNN. “I just froze. I didn’t know what to do.” “The first meeting I ever had with him was in his office and he just came up from behind — I was sitting in a chair from across his desk — and he came up behind me and [while he was clothed] he pressed his body on mine, his penis, on my shoulder,” another woman recounted. “I was obviously completely shocked. I can’t even remember how I got out of there — [but] I got out of there and was freaked out by that whole experience.
