Former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash is trying to get all three of the lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct by him dismissed, citing statutes of limitations.
He stands accused of inappropriate sexual relations with boys under the age of 18; Clash previously denied all of the allegations against him.
Clash attorney Michael Berger wrote in a brief Friday:
“There are two applicable types of statutes of limitations, a six-year one based on when the right of action has accrued, and a three-year one based on when the alleged victim turned 18 and was therefore no longer under the disabilityMore >
Reports that MTV may cancel Teen Mom 2 in an attempt to get off the Jenelle Evans roller coaster beg the question: Should they just cut her loose now?
She brings the ratings, no doubt, but at what cost? Is being on the show exposing her to more fame than she can take and adding stress to her already volatile life?
For everyone’s sake, is a clean, quick break best?
Insiders say the show is “definitely on its way out” following weeks of chaos revolving around the wild child, who the network deems “too much of a liability.”
“The way she’s going, she could literally die and MTVMore >
Has Jenelle Evans become too big of a liability, even for MTV?
It looks that way. E! News reports that Teen Mom 2 is “definitely on its way out” at the network, though MTV has yet to confirm that, saying in a statement:
“No decision has been made yet regarding a fifth season of Teen Mom 2. [We are] planning to air Season 4 this year and will announce the premiere date soon.”
Another insider said that Jenelle Evans, the combustible star of the reality hit, is just “too much of a liability” with her constant drama and legal problems.
The 21-year-old has accused three differentMore >
Sarah Palin and Fox News have agreed to part ways.
The former Vice Presidential nominee signed a three-year contract with the network in January 2010, reportedly for $1 million per year, and has offered up her analysis of current events ever since.
Most recently, she blasted President Obama for winning Time Person of the Year and slammed his handling of the Fiscal Cliff situation.
It was the one issue on which Palin and Obama disagreed. Just kidding.
Executive Bill Shine says the network wishes Palin all the “best in her future endeavors,” but there were signs that tensionMore >

Now as word of Beyonce’s lip syncing the anthem to pre-recorded music has spread like wildfire, does her performance at President Obama’s inauguration feel like a big let down– her performance a little less authentic?
Everyone knows Beyonce has the pipes and the moves to pull off singing at such a major event. But why the backlash? Perhaps the recent admission to fraud and doping by Lance Armstrong has the public reeling from all the lies and the faker. And now the inaugural possibly tainted by a lip sync performance which seems to counter the ideals of what a Presidential inaugurationMore >

Controversy surrounding Django Unchained and its use of the N-word may have subsided, but a new scandal has erupted over Quentin Tarantino’s thriller.
No, not over its inclusion among the 2013 Academy Awards nominees.
But over the action figures that recently went on sale, and which Al Sharpton’s National Action Network believes are an insult to African-Americans everywhere.

“The movie is for adults, butMore >

The Wall Street Journal reports that Beck’s The Blaze approached Current about buying the struggling channel last year, but was turned down on ideological grounds.
Beck was reportedly told that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”
Not surprising. Current TV is the network founded by former DemocraticMore >
