Leaving a Great Guy to Get Back With a Bad Ex Just Isn’t a Good Move

If you leave the new guy for your ex—exactly what your ex did to you, so you know—you will soon find yourself back in the same spot you were a year ago. Your ex isn’t staying this time, either, and when he leaves again, the new guy likely isn’t going to be as forgiving to you as you are to your ex. You’ll be on your own, again, which you probably need to be anyway. If you could skip all the drama to reach that point, it would serve you better.

Who Owned My Mixed-Race Ancestor in Louisiana?

In the 1860 census slave schedule for St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana, we located an individual by the name of “A. Perilliat” (spelled with one “r”), listed as the owner of four slaves: a female, age 40, and three male children, ages 12, 8 and 4. Cross-checking that record with the 1860 census shows that A. Perilliat resided in an area known as Bonnet Carré in St. John the Baptist Parish. In the mid-1860s, the area of Bonnet Carré was also called St. Peter, and today it is called Reserve.

James Franco Settles Lawsuit Over Charles Bukowski Biopic

Homefront James Franco - H 2013

James Franco has figured out a way to resolve a lawsuit over Bukowski, possibly leading to the release of the film about German-born author Charles Bukowski, once called the “laureate of American lowlife.”

The actor-filmmaker-artist-professor was taken to California federal court in April by Cyril Humphris, who claimed to have film rights on Bukowski’s semi-autobiographical novel, Ham on Rye. Franco’s film was alleged to be infringing upon those rights.

In media interviews, Franco has expressed fondness for Ham on Rye, about a boy growing up in working-class Los Angeles in the 1940s who copes with various coming-of-age cruelties. He also said he was adapting it, though he

‘American Hustle’ Sparks $1 Million Libel Lawsuit by Former New Yorker Writer

American Hustle

It’s a very brief exchange in American Hustle: Jennifer Lawrence‘s character Roslyn tells her husband, Irving, played by Christian Bale, that microwaves take the nutrition out of food. “That’s bullshit,” Irving replies, and his wife shows him a magazine and says, “It’s not bullshit. I read it in an article. Look, by Paul Brodeur.”

The real Brodeur is a science journalist who was a staff writer at The New Yorker for nearly 40 years. He’s even written books (such as The Zapping of America) about the dangers of microwave radiation. But he’s never said that they take the nutrition out of food, he claims in a new lawsuit.
