Are the Golden Globes Real or A SHAM????

The Associated Press is reporting that the former publicist to the Golden Globe Awards Michael Russell and his partner have filed a lawsuit against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association claiming it engages in payola schemes for nominations and awards. If this is true then this is another major blow to the credibility of the Golden Globes and the management of the awards and its President Philip Berk. The show fired their publicists Michael Russell and Stephen Locascio last year after the show. They claim they were only dismissed after they brought a number of unethical or improper activity concerns to the management of the Golden Globes. The new and current public relations firm run by Ken Sunshine are quoted as saying there is no merit to these claims. So is this a lawsuit based upon spite by former fired consultants or is the truth coming out after this publicist firing?

The Federal Communications Commission questioned the authenticity of the voting process in the late 60's, and the show was in fact off the air for several years. The FCC cited the network airing it for careless oversight in failing to verify the credentials of the voters and the secrecy of the results.
As reported by AP "Russell's lawsuit notes another controversy that cast the Globes into relative obscurity for more than a decade.
In the early 1980s, the awards show lost its broadcast deal with CBS after its members were accused of receiving favors in exchange for giving actress Pia Zadora a newcomer award."

Is this another blow to the Golden Globes and their credibility or do people really even care about honesty regarding film awards shows anymore? In many respects these shows have become more of a Red Carpet and media extravaganza for people to watch their fave Hollywood Stars and their glitzy fashion statements. No question this is an interesting Hollywood and Foreign Press story and undoubtedly there will be more to come. Or will the Golden Globes pay to make sure this goes away a little more quietly? I am sure the lawyer for the publicist hopes so. We hope this story plays itself out so that the facts (whatever they are) come out and we learn a little more about the under belly of the Golden Globes and how these awards shows work. One thing is for sure: The Golden Globes will sure think twice before they ever fire their current famous publicist Ken Sunshine. Sphere: Related Content

Buyer Beware Online: Tech Advice

One of our own people bought a Dell computer online from BestBuy.com for his Autistic Son for Christmas. While the computer took over 10 days to get there it was still on time for the big day. Because it was an expensive Laptop it was his primary Christmas gift. When he opened it there was a big smile and much happiness until it was turned on. The screen had a "Pink Screen" defect and it was simply no good. Calls were immediately made to Dell who were very nice on the phone; but that is where it ended. They told us they would call back and we are still waiting. However the computer was bought at Best Buy online and so that is where we called next. We spoke to Yancey in Online support and received a ticket number and he nicely told us to send the child and father back into the store to exchange the computer for a like model and that if there was any additional charge that Best Buy would take care of it. That sounded professional and nice and that is where that ended. The Child and his father went into Best Buy store number 554 and they were told by the manager Lynda (after a long wait) that the online department would send a return label for the defective computer. When they asked to speak to the General Manager named Joe they were told "Joe" does not speak to customers???? Then we called online customer support again and were given another number and then told that a manager would call us back within 2 hours. Good guess if you thought they never called back. Since then we have tried to call Best Buy online customer support 11 times. We were put on long holds and when someone answered we politely asked for online customer support and 11 times we were disconnected and then told "yeah we got a problem with our phone". It is almost two days and this child still has no resolution or no computer. Also in the meantime Christmas vacation for this family has been ruined!!! When we tried to post a complaint to the profile of Kevin Dunn (The CEO of Best Buy) online his staff flagged it as spam. I guess Best Buy thinks legitimate customer complaints come under the spam department? So maybe the solution is a simple one: 1. Deal with a reputable dealer that cares about their customers. Buy your important tech purchases in person and MAKE SURE THEY WORK PROPERLY. BTW After that we finally reached another Best Buy representative who told us that we should absolutely get a fair replacement but that was the discretion of the store and they didn't want to mess with their inventory. Of course why should a sad autistic child that got disappointed at Christmas take precedence over inventory. What ever happened to old fashioned customer service. The Best Buy website says they are dedicated to customer service. What is that supposed to mean? in any event I am sure there are many other stories like this for the Holidays and we hope at Celebrity Wire you are not one of them. Happy Holidays!!!!

Katy Perry and Elmo: Check it on Celebrity Wire



Don't children breast feed?


Seriously Katy Perry did this nice song and skit with Elmo and a bunch of people went absolutely nuts. Talk about making a big deal out of nothing! It was meant to be innocent and it was certainly not meant to be sexy; especially to small children. But that is the beauty about a democracy: If you don't like something object and get upset. It's you're right! What advertisers and television execs hate most is bad publicity that effects their potential audience and advertising base. So they capitulated quickly on this one and as usual it is all about the dollars. In any event don't blame Katy Perry. We are on television sets all the time at CW and let me tell you there are directors and producers and writers and cameramen and more and more. Katy is the talent and if someone on the managing production level did not like this or thought it could be a problem then they could have and should have quickly changed it. So don't blame sweet and innocent Katy :))) on this one. We think she is good with Elmo and Elmo obviously likes her too. So we look forward to seeing more of Katy on Sesame Street. Elmo doesn't breast feed anymore, does he? Sphere: Related Content

What is Bono Doing With Charity Donations to "ONE" ?

Fox news wrote a story that seemed to get little attention in the media!

Here is the story:

"Bono's anti-poverty foundation ONE is under pressure to explain its finances after it was revealed that only a small percentage of money it raises reaches the needy.

The non-profit organisation set up by the U2 frontman received almost £9.6million in donations in 2008 but handed out only £118,000 to good causes (1.2 per cent).

The figures published by the New York Post also show that £5.1million went towards paying salaries."

Bono has unquestionably done a lot for charity and people around the world and we are not questioning that. We have always covered him with the highest praise and we give him very high marks as a person and musician. But we (and everyone else) should certainly question him about this one. If it is true that Bono's charity "ONE" gave away only about a hundred and fifty thousand dollars while at the same time it paid out over 6.3 million dollars in salaries to people running it, then there is certainly something seriously wrong. This allegation by Fox needs to be investigated and answered by Bono himself. In the United States no charity would be allowed to operate in that manner without any accountability. Bono is a major public figure and when his name is used on a charity it must be operating beyond these kinds of questions and concerns. We do not yet have comment from Bono or his charity on this story and we are relying on the accuracy of the Fox News report. However if that report is correct then Bono better start watching the foxes in his chicken coup! Sphere: Related Content
