Trump Jr.: Women Who 'Can't Handle' Harassment Should Teach Kindergarten

In a 2013 radio interview on the "The Opie and Anthony Show" surfaced by Buzzfeed News on Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. complains about women making charges of sexual harassment in the workplace, suggesting that women who have a trouble with men making certain comments should go teach kindergarten.
The comments came as Trump Jr. and the hosts were discussing whether women should be allowed at male-only golf courses.

“If you have a guys’ place you have a guys’ place," Trump Jr. said.

One of the hosts then lamented that women "complain" about "harassment."

"That’s why we hate having them around. They stop us from doing what we want to do," the host said.

Trump Jr. said that "in the club house, guys just want to be guys" and converse freely "even if you’re just talking s**t and it’s not really true."

One of the hosts then said that it's mostly "just bulls**tting around" and then suddenly human resources is inter…

Nayele applies to renounce Ghanaian citizenship

Nayele Ametefe, the Ghanaian lady who was sentenced in the UK for drug trafficking, has written to the Ghanaian government to renounce her citizenship, has learnt.

In a letter addressed to the Interior Ministry some weeks a ago, Ametefe who holds both Ghanaian and Austrian passports is asking the Ghanaian authorities to spike her name out as a Ghanaian. It is unclear the reasons for her decision.
However, sources have gathered that Nayele could benefit from a prisoner transfer arrangement between the UK and Austria if she is identified only as an Austrian.

Secondly, our checks reveal that the system in Austria generally allows for the early release of prisoners. Often, first time offenders are allowed to serve half of their term and then granted a pardon. The Executive Court can also release a prisoner at their own discretion.

Several attempts by for the Interior ministry to comment failed as the ministry remains tight-lip…

Emma Stone on equal pay in Hollywood: 'We should all be treated fairly'

Emma Stone is the latest actress to speak out about the gender pay gap in Hollywood.
"We should all be treated fairly and paid fairly," she said in an interview for the November issue of Vogue magazine. But Stone, who stars in the upcoming musical film "La La Land," alongside Ryan Gosling, added that she has not been personally impacted by pay inequity.  "I've been lucky enough to have equal pay to my male costars. Not 'lucky.' I've had pay equal to my male costars in the past few films." she said. "But our industry ebbs and flows in a way that's like, 'How much are you bringing into the box office?' 'How much are you the draw or is the other person the draw?' Stone echoed the sentiments of her good friend Jennifer Lawrence, who wrote a much talked about essay last year about the pay gap for women in Hollywood.  "What are we at [nationally]? Seventy-nine cents to the dollar?" Stone continued. "…

Woman says Trump reached under her skirt and groped her in early 1990s

Kristin Anderson was deep in conversation with acquaintances at a crowded Manhattan nightspot and did not notice the figure to her right on a red velvet couch — until, she recalls, his fingers slid under her miniskirt, moved up her inner thigh, and touched her vagina through her underwear. 
Anderson shoved the hand away, fled the couch and turned to take her first good look at the man who had touched her, she said.

She recognized him as Donald Trump: “He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows. I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”

At the time of the incident, which Anderson said took place in the early 1990s, she was in her early twenties, trying to make it as a model. She was paying the bills by working as a makeup artist and restaurant hostess. Trump was a big celebrity whose face was all over the tabloids and a regular presence on the New York club scene.

The episode, as Anderson described it, lasted no more than 30 seconds. Anderson said she and her …

Melania Trump demands retraction from People

Melania Trump is demanding a retraction and apology from People magazine for publishing a former writer's account alleging Donald Trump assaulted her while she was on assignment.
The model and GOP presidential nominee's wife threatened to sue in a letter addressed to Natasha Stoynoff, who wrote the piece, and People editorial director Jess Cagle, calling parts of the account "false and completely fictionalized." The letter does not mention the allegation at the center of the story, where Stoynoff wrote that Trump shoved her against a wall and tried to kiss her during a break in an interview for an article about his and Melania Trump's first anniversary.

On behalf of Melania Trump, lawyer Charles Harder disputed that she and Stoynoff ran into each other, citing the following lines from the People story:

That winter, I actually bumped into Melania on Fifth Avenue, in front of Trump Tower as she walked into the building, carrying baby Barron.

“Natasha, why do…

Tyson Fury seen for the first time since giving up his boxing titles after cocaine use (photos)

Tyson Fury on Wednesday relinquished his WBA,WBO  and IBO titles after deciding to treat himself for depression and cocaine abuse and was for the first time on Thursday spotted arriving at his Lancashire home with a plastic bag containing packets of Doritos among other snacks.

The boxer had confessed in an interview to taking cocaine, fighting depression and being suicidal after refusing to turn up for his title defence fight against Wladmir Klitschko twice this year with his blood samples coming up positive for cocaine in the last one month.

The British Boxing Board of control planned to meet on Wednesday to discuss whether to suspend or ban Tyson from the sport, which would have seen him stripped of the belts enabling a fight between Wladmir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua but Fury has beaten them to the punch by vacating his titles voluntarily.

 The 28-year-old said in a statement:

'I won the titles in the ring and I believe that they should be lost in the ring, but I'…

Brad Pitt Sees His Children for the First Time Since Angelina Jolie Split

Brad Pitt has finally reunited with some of his children, ET can confirm.  The monitored visit took place on Saturday, Oct. 8, but not all children were present for the reunion. This marks the first time the 52-year-old actor has been able to see his children since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce last month.

Jolie and Pitt came to a temporary custody agreement on Sept.30, which is in effect until Oct. 20. The two volunteered to participate in individual counseling, and Pitt also agreed to undergo drug and alcohol testing, though he was not required to.

Federal authorities are still looking into child abuse claims, the FBI tells ET they are "continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued." A source previously told ET that the abuse claims were "exaggerated or untrue" and there was "no inappropriate physical contact."

The Maleficent star asked for physical custody of their six children in h…

You Belong To The Kitchen...Prez Buhari Replies Wife (VIDEO)

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has put his wife down in the crudest way possible, saying she should not be commenting on political matters because she’s a woman and a wife.

Frankly, these are outdated and misogynistic comments from the leader of Africa’s largest nation, sounding like something a Donald Trump would say.

Buhari’s wife, Aisha, broke ranks this morning when she told the BBC that her husband’s running of the country could lose him her support when he runs for re-election. And whilst the comments were perhaps out of place and harmful to Buhari politically, his response leaves much to be desired.

“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.” Buhari, who is on a state visit to Germany, told the Associated Press.

“So I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition, because in the end I have succeeded. It’s not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to parti…

Wayoosi’s Six Months Old Daughter Buried (Photos)

Kumawood actor Wayoosi’s daughter Blessing Osei Fremah who died on Thursday, October 13 has been buried.

The late who was mostly called Nhyira was buried hours after she passed on. The little girl died six months after she was born and was buried in Kumasi.
Eugene Moratt, spokesperson for the family who confirmed the news to early Thursday said she died as a result of drug overdose.

“He called on Sunday to tell me that the child is sick adding she was allergy to a drug. I told them to take her to a hospital because judging from how he was narrating it, the sickness was serious.

When I went there on Monday, she couldn’t open her eyes. I went there yesterday (Wednesday, October 12) and realised they had connected artificial oxygen on her to discard an unwanted medicine they gave her from the body.

So I asked the doctor what happened and he replied that they are investigating into the matter because they were given wrong medicine for the child’s sickness.

The dosage was also…

Nancy O’Dell Separated, Splits From Husband Keith Zubulevich

Nancy O’Dell and husband Keith Zubulevich separated in September, Gossip Cop confirms. The couple wed in 2005, and have a 9-year-old daughter named Ashby.
Gossip Copis told the split is “amicable,” and they’re dedicated to their kids. Zubulevich has two older sons from a previous marriage. This was the “Entertainment Tonight” show anchor’s second marriage. She was previously wed to Richard O’Dell. The separation has “nothing to do” with the release of the taped conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush in which the GOP presidential candidate bragged about trying to have sex with O’Dell, who used to host “Access Hollywood.”
As Gossip Cop reported, during a shoot months after O’Dell married Zubulevich, Trump told her then-cohost Bush in a leaked video, “I moved on [O’Dell] and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f--- her. She was married… I moved on her like a b----, but I couldn’t get there.” Following the release of the offending recording, O’Dell said in a stateme…

PPP Will Not Join Any Political Party – Nduom

The Flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, has discounted any possibility of his party joining forces with another party to contest in the upcoming general elections following his disqualification from the race.

Nduom, who is currently challenging his disqualification as the PPP Flagbearer, said in a Facebook post on Thursday that, the PPP was an independent party and will not join any other political party for the election.
“Our Party is independent and is not joining any other political party for this election,” he said. He was optimistic that PPP parliamentary candidates across the country will receive massive endorsement from electorates in the upcoming polls.

“I know that PPP Parliamentary Candidates are winning seats in all ten regions,” he stressed.

“They have worked hard and won support in their communities. Ghana needs them in Parliament to lead in bringing about the changes to the 1992 Constitution that will make our country Great …

Donald Trump calls sex assault claims 'totally false'

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has denied multiple women's claims that he sexually assaulted them as "totally and absolutely false".
"The claims are preposterous, ludicrous and defy truth, common sense and logic," Trump said at a campaign rally in Florida.
"We already have substantial evidence to dispute these lies, and it will be made public in an appropriate way and at an appropriate time, very soon."
Two women accused Trump of inappropriate touching in a story published on Wednesday by The New York Times, just four weeks before the November 8 election.

The report was followed by a stream of similar allegations from other women, putting more pressure on the Trump campaign as it lags in national opinion polls and struggles to contain a crisis caused by the candidate's comments about groping women without their consent that surfaced on Friday.
One of the women, Jessica Leeds, appeared on camera on the Times' website to re…

Samsung expects further profit hit from Note 7 fallout

Samsung expects further blows to its profits from the withdrawal of the Note 7 phone, saying revenue will be affected in the first quarter of 2017.
The tech giant had already revised down its third-quarter earnings guidance. 
On Friday, it said it expected an additional negative impact of around 3tn won ($2.7bn, £2.2bn).
The Note 7 was recalled last month after battery fires, but when replacement phones experienced the same problem, Samsung scrapped the device.

The premium phone, launched in August, was meant to compete with Apple's new iPhone 7 at the top end of the smartphone market. 
The revised outlook brings to more than $5bn the total losses the world's biggest smartphone maker says it expects as a result of the Note 7 fiasco, after it said on Wednesday it would suffer a $2.3bn hit to third-quarter profit.

 'Enhance product safety'
The firm said that in order to "normalise its mobile business", it would expand sales of its other flagship devices, such a…

Nigeria's President Buhari warned by first lady

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari's wife has warned him that she may not back him at the next election unless he shakes up his government. 
In a BBC interview, Aisha Buhari said the president "does not know" most of the top officials he has appointed. 
She suggested the government had been hijacked, saying a "few people" were behind presidential appointments. 
Mr Buhari was elected last year with a promise to tackle corruption and nepotism in government.
His wife's decision to go public with her concerns will shock many people, but it shows the level of discontent with the president's leadership, says the BBC's Naziru Mikailu in the capital, Abuja. 
The president famously remarked at his inauguration that he "belongs to nobody and belongs to everybody".
In the interview with Naziru Mikailu, Mrs Buhari said: "The president does not know 45 out of 50, for example, of the people he appointed and I don't know them either, despite b…

Kim Kardashian Returns to Social Media After Paris Robbery

Kim Kardashian West is back on Twitter-- but only to get more selective on whose accounts she follows.

The 35-year-old reality star was previously following 121 accounts, but as of Thursday, is now following only 106 accounts. Kim currently has 48.5 million followers.

Still, she has yet to make a statement on her terrifying robbery in Paris earlier this month, during which she was held at gunpoint and begged for her life.

Kim, understandably, is still "shaken up" about the incident and "doesn't feel ready to talk about it," a source close to the star told ET on Wednesday.

"Right now, she's still focused on trying to feel better about the whole situation," the source said. "Kim is at home with [her kids] North and Saint in Los Angeles. Her mom [Kris Jenner] and sisters visit her regularly. They're being great and supporting her in every way they can."

It also looks like the mother of two is taking the rest of the month off. Kim c…
