Kelly Lebrock Steven Seagal

Kelly Lebrock Steven Seagal, Kelly LeBrock was a famous model before she ever married action star Steven Seagal. She began a career in modeling when she was only 16 years old, gracing hundreds of magazine covers and going on photo shoots for the esteemed Eileen Ford Agency in New York. But Kelly didn't live a charmed life, according to RadarOnline.

Kelly LeBrock: Model and Rape Victim

Kelly LeBrock used to tell Americans, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful," as she touted Pantene shampoo on television. But now she is telling them that, "I was constantly raped and abused my whole life." That's a shocking revelation coming from the woman who was wed to Steven Seagal for ten years of her life.

Steven Seagal's Marital History: Bigamist and Philanderer?

In 1987, the year Kelly LeBrock and Steven Seagal got married, a lot of things were going on. Steven had left his two children (a son and a daughter), along with his wife Miyako Fujitani, whom he had married in 1974, to hook up first with Adrienne La Russa, a soap actress from Days of Our Lives.

Steven went on to marry Adrienne even though he wasn't officially divorced from Miyako. This made the action star a bigamist. When that came to light, Steven was already embroiled in a love affair with model Kelly LeBrock too. And even worse, Kelly was pregnant with his child.

Kelly LeBrock and Steven Seagal Get Married After He Gets Two Divorces!

Steven officialy divorced Miyako, got his unoffical marriage to Adrienne 'annulled', and then went on to marry Kelly. Steven and Kelly LeBrock, surprisingly, stayed married for ten years, from 1987 to 1997, resulting in the birth of three children for the couple (two girls and one son).

But Steven was no more being faithful to Kelly than he had the women before her. Steven was caught cheating on Kelly when the children were younger. The "Hard to Kill" action-star was cheating with their children's nanny! In their home.

The nanny, Arrissa Wolf, was very young and would continue an involvement with Seagal after his divorce from Kelly. Arrissa would also bear Steven a child, Savannah, out of wedlock. But Kelly would divorce Steven first.

Kelly LeBrock Tells All In Her New Book

Kelly might have been the unsuspecting wife, and she might have been the victim of domestic violence and rape in her past, but she is being victorious by telling about it now in her new book. But don't expect Kelly to blab all the details out in public, as RadarOnline found out this month.

When Radar asked Kelly point blank if Steven Seagal was the one who raped and abused her, Kelly LeBrock had this to say, "I had a life before Steven Seagal, and a life after him. This book is not about Steven Seagal. But good or bad, he is a part of my life."

Kelly LeBrock Says She Was Raped All Her Life

If Kelly was the victim of rape and abuse at the hands of Seagal and others, she feels safest disclosing it in written form, as a book about her life. That way it isn't short 'sound bites' that the public gets to hear. Sound bites can be misconstrued and inaccurate portrayals of all that took place can occur that way.

Kelly is obviously seeking to lay the foundation of what her life has been like in all phases, not just the Steven Seagal one. But Kelly was also married to Steven for ten years; So she, more than any other woman, knows what he is capable of, and what she needs to fear from him--even now.

Kelly LeBrock is likely avoiding a legal litigation with the action-star by giving such a 'diplomatic' answer to RadarOnline's question. And you can understand why, since Steven Seagal is trying to tar and feather the reputation of his current alleged sexual harassment victim. So you'll just have to wait and read Kelly's book when it gets finished to find out what really happened to her--and if Steven Seagal was an abuser and rapist of the '80's sex symbol or not.


Spy Satellite Launched

Spy Satellite Launched, A huge rocket carrying a spy satellite for the United States has launched from the central California coast.

United Launch Alliance says liftoff occurred Wednesday morning from Vandenberg Air Force Base, about 150 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

The 23-story Delta IV Heavy — the largest rocket in the country — carried a satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office, which operates the nation’s system of intelligence-gathering satellites.

Since the mission is classified, no other details were available.

It’s the second time this type of rocket has launched from the West Coast base. The first occurred in 2011 and shook the nearby city of Lompoc. Some spectators reported hearing the rocket’s roar from 50 miles away.

For the latest launch, base officials closed a nearby beach as a precaution.

Sheriff Missing Arizona Teen Found

Sheriff Missing Arizona Teen Found, The father of an Arizona teenager whose body was found Monday evening near his abandoned SUV in the woods of southern Oregon said his son was "a young man who had a broken heart."

The body of Johnathan Croom, 18, was found about 1,000 feet from where his vehicle was found abandoned last week, Douglas County sheriff's spokesman Dwes Hutson said in a statement.

Hutson said the Apache Junction, Ariz., youth's death was being investigated as a suicide but he provided no additional information. He didn't return a call for comment.

In a telephone interview from Oregon, David Croom said his son was grieving the end of a recent relationship with "someone back in Phoenix."

"He was a young man who had a broken heart and headed out to try to find himself," the elder Croom said. "We're looking forward to finding out exactly what happened."

He thanked everyone who helped search for his son and added, "Please pray for our family."

The father said he had no specifics on a cause of death.

The teen had talked with his parents about the book "Into the Wild" and told a friend he wanted to run away.

Croom's SUV was found Wednesday in Riddle, a town of 1,200 people just off the state's main north-south thoroughfare, Interstate 5.

His mother, Monica Croom, had said he was traveling alone and on his way back from Seattle, where he visited a friend. The teen was due in Arizona on Aug. 17 to start college in Mesa.

Hutson said earlier that text messages between Croom and a friend indicated Croom wanted to run away.

Hutson said Croom also talked to his parents about Christopher McCandless, whose journey to Alaska was documented in the book "Into the Wild." McCandless gave up his worldly goods to live in the Alaska wilderness, only to die there, perhaps from eating wild potatoes.

"I think we have kind of a combination there," Hutson said earlier Monday. "He talked with his parents about 'Into the Wild,' and in text messages we've looked at, he does specifically talk about running away, kind of just running away from his life."

Earlier this year, a 19-year-old from Oklahoma disappeared after talking to his parents about the same book and setting out to test himself against the Oregon wilderness.

Dustin Self's truck was found in April on Steens Mountain in southeast Oregon. The last search for Self was in the spring, after snow melted, but it yielded no hints to his location.

Famous speeches In History, The Eloquent Woman Index of Famous Women's Speeches---At the beginning of 2011, The Eloquent Woman blog launched a new weekly feature called "Famous Speech Friday," designed to answer a question I kept getting from speakers, trainees and speaker coaches: "Where can I find examples of great women's speeches?" Often, they'd add that they could only find examples from long-past speeches from the most famous of women speakers, like Eleanor Roosevelt or Barbara Jordan.

Now we have 100 speeches and counting collected here as The Eloquent Woman Index of Famous Women's Speeches, and the roster includes everyone from Eleanor Roosevelt to Lady Gaga. Every speech here is famous in some way, even if the speaker is not, and most of them include commentary on women's issues.

You'll find tips on what you can learn from each of these speeches, along with transcripts, audio or video whenever it's available. The entries are below, arranged alphabetically by the speaker's first name. In 2013, we'll be adding posts that collect speeches on this list by type of speaker, topic and other slices of the index, to make it more useful to you. I welcome your suggestions for future famous speech examples by women, at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz.

Hollywood Long-Lasting Secrets

Leave a Comment Follow us on twitter
Hollywood Long-Lasting Secrets, Denzel Washington's success story includes two Oscars, a pair of Golden Globe Awards, and more blockbuster hits than you can count on your fingers and toes. But perhaps the actor's most noteworthy accomplishment is his long-lasting marriage to his wife of almost 30 years, Pauletta Pearson Washington.

The duo met in 1977 on the set of TV movie "Wilma," in which they both had small roles. The part, Denzel's first on-screen performance, may not have won the young actor any kudos, but it did help him land his future wife's love. They wed five years later, on June 25, 1983.

So what is the secret to their relationship's longevity? According to the actor, it's a two-step process: "Do whatever my wife says, and keep my mouth shut!" he told Wonderwall at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, "Flight."

In exchange for his obedience, Pauletta has supported her husband throughout his ever-blossoming career, putting her acting ambitions aside to focus on raising the couple's four children. But that may not be the case for much longer!

"She's sort of branching out now that the kids are out of the house," Denzel says. "She's working in New York now and getting her career back on track."

While his leading lady is gearing up for her career comeback, Denzel has been cozying up to stunner Nadine Velazquez, with whom he shares a love scene in "Flight."

"We get all kinds of naked and it's great," Nadine said of the intimate scene. "He's such a professional, he makes everything just easy."

But Pauletta apparently has no reason to fear. For her loyal hubby, smooching a sexy model is just another day at the office. "It's not intimate or anything like that," said Denzel of what can be one of the most uncomfortable moments for an actor. "Love scenes are very technical. It's you and 29 other people in the room. … I remember an actor said years ago, 'Don't be upset if I get excited and don't get upset if I don't.' It's very technical!"

Regardless of his on-screen proclivities, when the cameras aren't rolling, it's obvious what Denzel's true priorities are: "He's always with his family," said co-star Brian Geraghty.

Famous Hollywood Scandals

Famous Hollywood Scandals, Khloe K's Secrets Spill After Lamar Odom's Cheating, Drug Charges, Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Khloe K and husband Lamar Odom's private lives are spilling out in the tabloids as the famous Hollywood reality TV family gets a heavy dose of tabloid and celebrity news coverage after his cheating and drug charges emerged in online reports.

It is reported now that Khloe Kardashian kept her marriage problems a secret from her family "for quite some time" and now she is furious they are spilling into the public and everyone is commenting on the family's messes.

Khloe K, a 29-year-old reality star, is known to be close to her sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and mother Kris Jenner, but she is said to have kept it quiet from them that she and Lamar Odom – who have been married for nearly four years – have been having issues, amid allegations he has a serious drug problem.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Khloe did keep her marriage issues with Lamar a secret from her family for quite some time - no one knew."
Lamar was spotted returning home on Monday (26.08.13) "looking gaunt" after reportedly going missing for six days after Khloe kicked him out because he did not want to go to rehab.

His decision not to enter the facility is thought to be because basketball pre-season training camps are coming up soon, but following allegations the 33-year-old star has a drug problem, the Los Angeles Clippers are said to be refusing to re-sign him, according to TMZ.

NBA sources told the gossip website that Clippers team officials wanted Odom back on their roster over the summer after being impressed with his performances last season, but they found it tough to contact him.

And now following reports he has a drugs issue, they have filled up their roster after signing former Los Angeles Lakers star Antawn Jamison, meaning there is no space for Odom.

Civil Rights: The spirit of freedom

Leave a Comment Follow us on twitter
Civil Rights: The spirit of freedom, In an exclusive with Essence, Network's National Executive Director Tamika D. Mallory makes a passionate call to reignite the fire for social justice.

In 1963 we faced an uphill battle for the right to vote. We couldn't sit at the front of the bus and had to drink out of separate water fountains. And our schools and public spaces were still largely segregated. I wasn't alive on August 28, 1963, when hundreds of thousands joined Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in the nation's capital for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. That historic day brought both Blacks and Whites together on the side of justice. At a time when we were still disenfranchised at the polls, facing discrimination in employment and housing, and suffering from unfair pay and unequal access to just about everything, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was one of the largest rallies ever convened. With no Internet, Twitter, Facebook, e-mail or cell phones to get the word out, the organizers did whatever it took to bring the marchers to Washington, D.C. In the spirit of that historic day, and in light of the many challenges we still face as women and as people of color, I say it's time to do it all again.

Our children are hurting and when they suffer, we all suffer. The epidemic of gun violence is tearing our communities apart, as is the high rate of incarceration. Our young men are constantly profiled, harassed and endangered by programs like the New York City Police Department's stop-and-frisk practices and the Stand Your Ground laws in Florida. And our young women are far too comfortable being called b--ches and h--s in the name of entertainment. Fifty years ago we were called out of our name by the segregationists. Today the segregationists. Today the segregationists pay us to call ourselves out.

In 1963 Josephine Baker spoke at the March on Washington. She was there to introduce several Negro Women Fighters for Freedom. Today women of color are especially missing from the boardroom, our reproductive rights are under attack and the pay gap is still a chasm. We must understand that while we commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the inception of Dr. King's historic dream, we must raise our voices around an entirely new dream.

Whenever I think about the Tea Party Movement, I'm amazed at how definitively they were able to influence the conversation to their benefit by gathering in huge numbers and shifting policy in their favor by voting their members into office. We need to do the same around our issues of concern. If folks made it to the March in 1963, we have no excuse not to show up today.
You may have two cell phones, a nice ride and a little bit of money, and think things are good. You may watch celebrities or reality TV stars flaunt their success, and somehow think things are straight. I'm here to say, We are not good! We still don't own enough businesses (even in our own communities); we still have unequal schools and unequal access to higher education; we're subject to higher mortgage rates; we're often the last ones hired and the first ones fired, and the list goes on. Dr. King's dream of our children being judged on the content of our character and not by the color of our skin still hasn't been fully realized. The reality is, even though we have made some obvious gains, the struggle continues.

We may not be confronting actual water hoses or bulldogs, or dealing with lynchings and Whites Only signs. But today the guns in our community are even deadlier than the water hoses; we face the bulldog of unequal education; the lynching is police brutality, and the water fountains are corporate boardrooms. Some may think we are too complacent to organize and continue Dr. King's legacy, but I know we still have the fire—it just needs to be ignited. Come light a flame with me.
