Los Angeles — "Girls Gone Wild" creator Joe Francis was sentenced Tuesday to 270 days in jail and three years' probation for choking a woman and repeatedly slamming her head to the ground at his Los Angeles mansion in 2011.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Nancy L. Newman also ordered the 40-year-old Francis to complete an anger management course and attend 52 sessions of psychological counseling, according to Deputy City Attorney Mitchell Fox.
A jury in May convicted Francis of five misdemeanor charges – three counts of false imprisonment, one count of assault by means likely to cause great bodily injury, and one count of dissuading a witness from reporting a crime.
Francis' attorney Steve Levine said key details of the case were proven to be false in court, and he is appealing the decision.

New York -- The day after the MTV Video Music Awards came with a few more people Googling the phrase: "What is twerking?"
It's been a popular search all summer, ever since Miley Cyrus, America's former teen sweetheart, decided her pathway to chart-topping success involved doing freaky things with stuffed animals and gyrating her booty at high speeds. Newly anointed as an expert, Cyrus has been twerking her way up the charts with the song "We Can't Stop," the catchy groove that has been in Billboard's top 10 for most of the summer.
For those who are still unclear, twerking is a dance, it's all about the movement of the rump – and it's been around longer than Miley's been alive. It's been called different things at different times, but anyone who saw the video "Rump Shaker," has been to a strip club or has seen the majority of hip-hop videos over »
Take a daytime TV star, an ex-soap actor, 10 extras and some potted palms to a quarry in Hertfordshire and what do you get? An award-winning Iraq war blockbuster, of course. Here's how the producers of A Landscape Of Lies conned millions out of the taxman
Paul Knight is not the sort of person you'd take for a fall guy. A youthful-looking but physically imposing 45-year-old, Knight makes no secret of his colourful past. "Let's just say my path up until my 30th birthday went in a certain direction," he says. As a youth, his record ran to car theft, shoplifting and breaking and entering; in "the bigger leagues", he was arrested several times but always managed to avoid prison. "I was only convicted for certain things, so I'm not going to admit to what they didn't catch me for." He hints that his godfather was Charlie Kray, and that his »

It has been a decade since Ryan Atwood (Benjamin McKenzie) had his first entree into life in "The O.C.," bringing fans of teen soap along for a look at life inside the mansions of Newport Beach. The Fox drama, which premiered on August 5, 2003, was filled with envelope-pushing sexual encounters, Juicy Couture jumpsuits, Death Cab for Cutie, trips to T.J. and much, much more.
Josh Schwartz was a day shy of 27 when "The O.C." first hit the airwaves, which made him the youngest TV creator ever and probably, one of the only ones who would admit to penning a highly-acclaimed pilot in his boxer shorts.
From the real story behind Mischa Barton's departure to the Cohens' original name, and the missed coupling opportunities to the star who didn't even make it onto "The O.C.'s" first poster, read on to see what Schwartz revealed to The Huffington Post while »

Television is a gold goose that lays scrambled eggs;
and it is futile and probably fatal to beat it for not laying caviar.
When people argue over the quality of television programming, both sides — it’s addictive crap v. underappreciated populist art — seem to forget one of the essentials about commercial TV. By definition, it is not a public service. It is not commercial TV’s job to enlighten, inform, educate, elevate, inspire, or offer insight. Frankly, it’s not even commercial TV’s job to entertain. Bottom line: its purpose is simply to deliver as many sets of eyes to advertisers as possible. As it happens, it tends to do this by offering various forms of entertainment, and occasionally by offering content that does enlighten, inform, etc., but a cynic would make the point that if TV could do the same job televising fish aimlessly swimming around an aquarium, »

"The most appealing elements come from the wealth of supporting players, including a breakout turn by Yael Stone as a wonderfully distinctive character who seems to have parachuted in from a 1930s gangster film, »

So we all know that "White House Down" flopped on its debut, earning a disappointing $24.8 million on a reported $150 million budget! Yikes! But now, the action flick starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx is facing more drama.
This time it's from the conservative right.
"White House Down" just can't get a break.
According to THR, conservatives were celebrating the film's low debut.
In the movie, Foxx stars as our president who must take a stand after a group of old, white conservative politicians become unhappy with the Potus decision to withdraw troops from the Middle East.
Everyone from ConservativeTimes.org to ChristianityToday.com called the movie liberal propaganda. Christian Toto, conservative reviewer for Brietbart accused director Roland Emmerich of "dumping ideological sludge atop his bloated disaster films."
Maybe Toto was talking about Emmerich's "2012?" Certainly not about "10,000 B.C." Or maybe the global warming cautionary fable "The Day After?" »
"The Bible" delivered huge numbers for History. Its premiere had more than 13 million viewers and the finale on Easter Sunday had 11.7 million viewers. Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, and Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, praised Burnett.

In fact, what happened in the aftermath -- which is essentially the beginning of Christianity -- is utterly fascinating," Greenblatt said in a statement. "The day after 'The Bible' premiered, I told Mark we were on board with no hesitation for the follow-up miniseries. This will be attention-getting in every way, and we're proud to continue our association with Mark which has just grown exponentially from 'The Voice.' »
