Corey Feldman: The First Problem in Hollywood is Pedophilia

According to Corey Feldman, former child star and best friend of the late Corey Haim, child molestation has run rampant in the entertainment industry.
"The first problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia," he said Wednesday, adding that the “casting couch” exists for children, too.
He and Haim were no exceptions to that disturbing trend, Feldman says.

Feldman asserted in an interview that directors and other adults in the industry take advantage of young aspiring actors on a regular basis.
“It's all done under the radar... But it's the big secret,” he said.
Feldman also claimed that former co-star Corey Haim's death last year was the end result of early sexual abuse by an unnamed "Hollywood mogul."
The 40-year-old said that his friend’s long-running battle with substance abuse and addiction was "a symptom” of the molestation he experienced.
The actor has said that he was raped by his assistant as a child.
"It's something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life, and it's something that truly affects me,” he told GQ magazine. (Free Britney) 13 Aug, 2011

Emmy Winner: Tina Fey

Emmy-winner Tina Fey welcomed her second daughter this week.
Already mom to 5-year-old Alice, the 30 Rock star and husband Jeff Richmond now have their hands full with Penelope Athena Richmond as well!
The baby's gender was a surprise to the pair. "I'm just going to see what it chooses to wear to prom," Fey said while pregnant a few months ago.

The comedian called her second pregnancy "easy," but admitted agonizing over having a second kid and whether or not to expand their family.
Fey told Oprah earlier this summer, "My husband and I really decided that we felt rather than risk having 30 Rock end in several years and feeling like part of our family is missing that we were going to prioritize our family."
We'd say she made the right call. Congratulations, Tina and Jeff!

Joy Behar and Steve Janowitz: Married in New York City

The View co-host Joy Behar will have even more to talk about than usual - she and her longtime boyfriend, Steve Janowitz, have tied the knot.
Calling Steve her "longtime boyfriend" is actually an understatement. They've been dating for 29 YEARS. Hey, why rush a good thing, right?
"She was married in New York City last night in a private ceremony," a rep for the show said.. "She will discuss it September 6 on The View."
Joy Behar and Steve Janowitz
The talk show returns for its 15th season then. Behar's wedding date, August 11, coincidentally marks the anniversary of its 1997 debut.
In 2009, Behar said she and Janowitz, whom she referred to as her "spousal equivalent," had plans to wed, only to break off the engagement.
They never parted ways, though, and finally made it official this week. We offer our congratulations to the couple and wish them the best.

Brooke Burke and David Charvet Got Married Last Night

Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke and David Charvet, her longtime partner and fiance, got married last night, according to reports.
The location: On a boat under the stars off the coast of St. Bart's, with their kids. Hard to imagine a more special moment for the couple, both 39.
"We're just at that place, where love is deep and meaningful, and we're feeling very settled," Brooke said of their relationship earlier this year.
Brooke Burke and David Charvet
Brooke Burke began dating David Charvet, who starred on Baywatch and the original Melrose Place, in 2005. He proposed to her just one year later, in 2006.
They are parents to daughter Heaven Rain, 4, and son Shaya Braven, 3. Burke has two daughters, Neriah, 11, and Sierra, 9, with ex-husband Garth Fisher.
In an interview with THG earlier this year, Brooke spoke about her "celebrity mom" status and making time for both herself and her relationship with David, despite the challenges of balancing her career and four kids.
It's a busy life, but it seems like it couldn't be going better for her. Congratulations to the newlyweds and to the entire family! (Free Britney) 14 Aug, 2011
