Busy Philipps said James Franco knocked the wind out of her after throwing her to the ground during a rehearsal

Busy Philipps has branded former Freaks and Geeks co-star, James Franco, ‘a f*cking bully’ in her memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little.

Recalling a moment during their time on the teen show, Busy explained that her character was required to ‘gently hit’ James’ character during a particular scene.

While rehearsing, Busy did just that, and James immediately broke character and assaulted her.

According to an extract provided by Yahoo, Busy wrote:

He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!’”And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me.

Busy was advised to speak to her manager by co-star, Linda Cardellini, and James was forced to apologise to Busy the following day, but the matter was ostensibly laid to rest without any further consequences.

Wendy Williams thinks Kim Kardashian is using her body to distract from Kanye’s ranting

Yes, it’s a stretch considering the fact Kim Kardashian has been using her body as her USP since 2007, but as far as Wendy Williams is concerned, the mother-of-three has gone into overdrive in recent times.

And she thinks it’s because she’s desperately trying to distract from her husband’s public conduct.

On her show yesterday, Wendy highlighted an image Kim posted of herself in a bikini, and branded the reality star ‘pathetic’.

Chanel vintage, lets please be specific

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

 People were going off calling her, ‘pathetic, desperate, sad.’ — I agree, agree and agree. This picture is so unnecessary at a time where her husband is losing all his marbles.

Apparently, Kim can post all the bikini shots she wanted, but no one is going to forget about Kanye’s MAGA hat.

While he’s losing it, she’s trying to distract with pictures like this… we can’t forget about Kanye, because he’s everywhere, and not in a good way.

 Right, so.

Helena Bonham Carter admits she found Harvey Weinstein ‘chilling’

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the veteran actress revealed that she regularly found herself unsettled by Harvey Weinstein’s conduct.

The movie mogul, who has been accused of rape and sexual misconduct, had a reputation as an on-set bully – something Helena confirmed while speaking to the British publication.

I found the way he treated certain people chilling—without any kind of respect. There were many times I disagreed with the way he behaved, and I don’t mean sexually.

Indeed, there were also times when Helena found herself considering the professional  implications of going up against Harvey.

There were times when Harvey asked me to do certain things, and I said no. I knew I was running a thin line. Standing up to him wasn’t an easy thing to do because I knew I could potentially lose work.

Helena worked alongside Harvey in The King’s Speech and The Wings of the Dove.
