Donald Trump Reportedly Called Deaf Celebrity Apprentice Star Marlee Matlin ‘Retarded’

This is absolutely DISGUSTING!

As we reported, Celebrity Apprentice Season 4 contestant Richard Hatch said Donald Trump made sexual remarks to deaf actress Marlee Matlin, specifically about her looks and how she made him feel.

Sadly, the GOP nominee took it a step further and reportedly mocked the Oscar winner’s disability!

According to three anonymous Apprentice crew members, the businessman repeatedly targeted the Children of a Lesser God star. One insider said:

“[Trump] would often equate that she was mentally retarded.”

The source says Trump would often scribble down notes during production. According to one of the papers, Donald actually wrote down, “Marlee, is she retarded??” The source continues:

“He would write notes on his blotter, his papers in front of him, and he would scribble notes in it… It was usually just asinine things on them.”

Another employee says the Republican made fun of Matlin’s voice during filming breaks.

“[Trump] would make fun of her voice… Like, to make it seem like she was mentally not there? [It] sounded like he got a real kick out of it. It was really upsetting.”

A different staffer said the 70-year-old would regularly treat Marlee differently solely because she was deaf.

“In the boardroom, he would talk to her like she was ‘special’… He took her deafness as a some kind of [mental] handicap.”

Luckily, Marlee is dumping Trump and is supporting Hillary Clinton during this year’s election.

Seriously people! We CANNOT have this idiot run our country! Don’t let it happen!

Zachary Levi from Chuck!

If you haven’t seen it, Chuck is about Levi playing a man who is basically forced into becoming a secret agent. So it hopefully won’t be much of a stretch for Levi to play a HERO!

That’s all the info that’s been released so far since everything else is under wraps.

We can’t wait until Heroes comes back!!

What do U think of them casting Zachary Levi?? Let us know in the comments!

Duke University Porn Star and I Want to Thank You for Your Letters

That’s Belle Knox, not her real name, the Freshman porn star student at Duke baring her arse at Bed Bath and Beyond, because that place sucks otherwise. B3 I mean, not Duke. Though both really if we’re being honest. You’ll see more of her later today, trust me.

Suffice it to say, Belle’s thankful for adult film money. While I’m thankful for the best audience on the Internet. And today, I give a special shout out to those of you who write in with your wonderful letters. Sure, some of them are just monosyllabic guttural grunts, but most are quite insightful if not utterly verging on semi almost brilliant. I read them all. I do. I know at one point I said I would respond to them all, but I no longer can. It’s not my flaring carpal tunnel syndrome or any other flaring ailment, it’s simply there are too many letters. I’m a wealthy man in the truest sense, though not the actual sense that matters to my landlord or hot women. So, again, I do read them all, I respond to many, but I am grateful for them all. So keep writing. It has to be better than real work.

Thanks.
Bill.

Way back in October 2010, we heard that Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts were in talks to star in a film version of Pulitzer/Tony-award winning play August: Osage County!

For those who haven’t seen the play, it revolves around a grieving mother and daughter who mercilessly argue with each other, following the death of the family’s patriarch.

Now, Weinstein Company executive David Glasser is saying that the film may start shooting THIS September, in hopes of wrapping production by the end of 2012!

If all goes according to plan, the film will be in Oscar contention during the 2013 awards season…and we have a feeling it’ll DESTROY the competition!

WNBA Star Attacked My Crotch … Claims Ex-BF

Filed under: Jantel Lavender, TMZ Sports

0823_Jantel_Lavender_EX
L.A. Sparks
rookie Jantel Lavender — the #5 overall pick in the 2011 WNBA Draft — allegedly kneed her ex-BF in the junk so hard, his groin area was “throbbing from the pain” … this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

According to court papers filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Lavender’s ex Adam Ashley obtained a temporary restraining order against the 6’4″ athlete two weeks ago … claiming he’s been “in hiding” ever since a July 5 altercation where Lavender allegedly grabbed a knife and threatened to kill him.

In the docs, Ashley also says Lavender “grabbed my head and slammed it into the wall. She grabbed my neck and was choking me.”

Ashley claims it wasn’t the first time Lavender got violent with him — alleging she also tried to choke him during a fight in June.  During that altercation, Ashley claims, “While I was grabbing for her hands she kneed me in the growing [SIC] area. My private area was throbbing from the pain.”

Jantel has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Ashley until the next court hearing.

After the judge granted the restraining order against Jantel — she filed a request for a restraining order of her own against Adam … claiming he attempted to punch her during a recent screaming match at her home.

The two are set to meet in court on August 30.
