Gloria Allred: Rasheedah Watley’s Dad, Christina Spivey Accuse Denver Ex-Broncos Player Brandon Marshall of Violence

Allred says Christina Spivey was the victim of violence by a former Denver Broncos player, Brandon Marshall, and that it was reported to the NFL and nothing was done. Rasheedah Watley was attacked by Marshall, who is now with the Chicago Bears. Her father, Clarence Watley said he had written in August 2008, to Roger Goodell about the alleged attacks and nothing was done.

Comedian D.L. Hughley Calls Columbus Short’s Estranged Wife a “Thirsty B*tch”

Comedian D.L. Hughley Calls Columbus Short’s Estranged Wife a “Thirsty B*tch”

Domestic violence should never be used as a punchline by anyone and it’s reprehensible that comedian D. L. Hughley mock ex-Scandal star Columbus Short’s estranged wife, Tuere McCall-Short, who has repeatedly said she fears for her life because of her husband’s violence towards here. He went nuclear on his radio show saying:

“The star of one of the hottest dramas in the country, chokes the f*ck out of his wife? That doesn’t ever happen. I don’t think it happened first off. Like the time Warren Sapp was getting ready to do the Super Bowl and some broad said that he raped her. There are just as many examples of women lying on men in the middle of divorce proceedings to get what they want, as there are men who actually do anything. My point is if he did what she’s alleging he did, she could still get all that she’s going to have and not bring it up now, when it damages his market value that she’s going to be impacted by. If he loses that job nobody’s living in Calabasas anymore.” 

Hughley added, “I guarantee you, three years from now she’s going to be thinking, “Damn, I should have shut the f*ck up. Cuz women always running out the mouth when they shouldn’t.”  When his co-host, Jasmine Sanders, tried to interject, he shot her down, chanting “dizzy ass broad” and “dizzy b*tch” in the background. Really? That’s comedy?

Sanders was trying to argue that McCall-Short didn’t run to the tabloid when the news broke about her marital woes, but she filed a police report and got a restraining order from the court. TMZ broke the story.

Hughley dismissed Sanders saying that if it hadn’t gone public, she would have sold it to the media. When she accused him of hating women, he said, “I don’t hate women. I hate dumb bitches. I hate women who act against their interests.”

I would urge everyone to sign the petition on Change.org asking for an apology from D. L. Hughley and hold Reach Media’s BlackAmericaWeb accountable for seemingly lending credence to the comedian’s despicable comments with an article entitled, Why Columbus Short’s Wife Should Keep Her Mouth Shut.”

UPDATE:  D.L. Hughley has issued an apology for his despicable mockery of domestic violence:

Last week during an after-show segment of my radio show, “The DL Hughley Show,” I unintentionally offended some people.

In regards to Columbus Short’s legal issues, I jumped to a conclusion and blamed Tanee McCall-Short; and I’m sorry. My intent was not to quiet victims.

When I did speak of the topic on air, I repeatedly emphasized then, and as I do now, that anyone who is convicted of domestic violence, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law; and that is what I believe.

Today, as always, the phone lines to The DL Hughley Show will be openB. We’ll address this topic with the DL Question of the Day and will discuss it throughout the show today from 3pm – 7pm ET.

Marissa Alexander Remains On Bond with Tightened Conditions

Marissa Alexander Remains On Bond with Tightened Conditions

Marissa Alexander will remain free on bail under tightened conditions, Circuit Judge James Daniel ruled on Friday, due to the fact “mistakes were made.”

State Attorney Angela Corey sought to have Alexander’s bail revoked because she ran errands, such as going to the bank, transporting relatives and going to store to purchase clothes.

Marissa Alexander argued that she had sought and received permission for each of the trips she took from the Sheriff’s Office CPC counselor assigned to monitor her compliance with the terms of release. 

CPC counselor April Wilson testified that she did approve each of Alexander’s trips and did so in the belief that she was following the court’s order specifying the terms of release. Her defense successfully argued that she reasonably relied on the permission of Wilson in believing she remained in compliance with her bond conditions.

Christopher Albano, 35, was shot to death by his 15-year-old son, after the teen witnessed his drunk father beating his mother early New Year’s Day.

The teen rushed to his mother’s aid after he saw Albano hitting his mother, killing him on the spot. He was taken into custody last night but not arrested, while police decide whether to file charges.

The Orlando Sentinel reports police arrived at the Avalon home after the woman called 911 to say her husband came home drunk and was beating her just before 2:30 a.m. She told police her son shot Christopher Albano.

Neighbors told WESH that the family attended a New Year’s Eve party in the neighborhood before the altercationChristopher Albano has had a few brushes with the law. He was charged with resisting arrest in 1999 and with drunken disorderly conduct in 2004.

What a sad way for this young man to start the New Year. His life will forever be changed. He defended his mother. God knows what else he witnessed in his home in the past. I pray that the police will not charge him with any crimes.

Christine Keith, Popular Housewife Blogger, Teenage Son Killed by Ex-Husband in Murder-Suicide

Christine Keith, Popular Housewife Blogger, Teenage Son Killed by Ex-Husband in Murder-Suicide

SHOCK: Christine Keith, writer of a popular housewife blog, and her 14-year-old son Isaac Miller, were fatally shot by her ex-husband, Randy Keith, because he refused to accept that their marriage was over. Randy Keith then committed suicide.

The three were found dead in their East Lansing, Mich., home Thursday night. Police confirmed Randy Keith was the shooter. She leaves three others kids behind. Christine Keith had been adamant about ending her marriage, after domestic abuse incidents.

Her attorney, Steve Cornish, told the Times Herald that “I had very grave concerns for her safety, but I don’t think I expected something this extreme.” A friend, Cheryl Overley said, “I was shocked, but not surprised. It’s part of the cycle of violence. For people who see this and are moved by the story of people who died before their time…I hope they learn about [domestic violence] and start discussions.”

According to a protection order filed in Ingham County Circuit Court, Christine Keith wrote in her petition, “threats of shooting me to death with one of his hunting rifles were par for the course.” She later withdrew that order.

Christine Keith had referenced her husband’s domestic abuse, including controlling, erratic and sometimes violent behavior in her first divorce filing in 2003. Police were called to their Jackson-area home after he pushed her to the floor, that left her unconscious briefly. In her petition for a second order of protection in 2011, she said her husband, who had been fired from his job and hadn’t worked in a year, threatened to kill her if she ever left him.

In her petition, filed April 8, 2011, she said “I need to be safe from Randy. Based on Randy’s consistent pattern of action, once he’s released…I will not be safe.” She filed a second divorce petition in October. It was close to being final when she was killed.
