KICKBACKS AND BRIBES GALORE

51316020.jpg
This whole gift bag deal is more scandalous than we suspected! Last weekend the presenters and winners at the Emmys Creative Arts (technical – costumes, hair etc) Awards got NO gift Bags. Usually the bags are discreetly tucked in the trunk of the limo picking up each celebrity. Instead they got a message that the bags will be SHIPPED when all their signed paperwork promising to take IRS responsibility is received.
As a result of all this IRS involvement, the Academy will not be giving bags this year. We had no idea what a big bucks disaster that decision is. Did you know the people who supply and fill those goody bags take a hefty FEE from each company donating? (Besides the price of the gifts.) There are kickbacks and bribes galore! The bag fillers routinely collect many more items and certificates than they need for bags and they KEEP the overflow. Sometimes the items appear on eBay. Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stuff changing hands- untaxed and unobserved! No WONDER the IRS is sticking it’s nose in.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
