Editor's note: On August 10, 2019, Jeffrey Epstein died in an apparent jailhouse suicide. For more information, see The Daily Beast's reporting here. R. Kelly arrived under escort of U.S. Marshals on Friday at the same small New Jersey airport where Jeffrey Epstein was arrested last month. The singer and the money manager are charged in separate cases with having sex with multiple minors. Both have long been seen in the company of underage girls. And both cases raise the question of why so many people said nothing over the years. Saying something when you see something Of course, not everybody could be expected to have understood the significance of what they were seeing before Epstein’s proclivities became widely known. That included realtor Pat French of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Back in September of 1992, French was on the way to take her tween-turning-teen daughter and a friend to see the first woman to lead the Cherokee tribe, when she stopped at a luxury hotel to drop … [Read more...] about Epstein Seen With Young Girls as He Shopped for ‘Baby Ranch’ in New Mexico
LOS ANGELES—Monday morning, attorney Gloria Allred announced a new civil lawsuit, alleging that the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had targeted yet another victim, identified only as Jane Doe 15, by inviting her to his New Mexico ranch, where he sexually assaulted her when she was just 15 years old. The lawsuit, filed today in a New York district court against the two executors of Epstein’s estate, seeks compensatory and punitive damages according to proof at trial for battery, assault, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Reporters gathered in a 15th-floor conference suite on Wilshire Boulevard, where Allred, wearing a bright pink blazer, sat beside Doe 15, a slim 31-year-old with cropped silver hair. Allred, perched on a yellow pages booster seat, introduced Doe 15, describing her involvement in earlier Epstein litigation. The alleged victim had delivered an impact statement at an August hearing in New York, following the billionaire’s … [Read more...] about Epstein Victim Files New Lawsuit Against Estate, Claiming He Raped Her at Age 15

As “One Day at a Time” co-creator Gloria Calderón Kellett puts it, “There’s so many shows out there that you need a little something extra to make people check you out — … [Read more...] about From ‘One Day at a Time’ to ‘Party of Five,’ Latinx TV Shows See a Boost from Existing IP
The sky is as pink as our daughter's socks as we leave the restaurant. She is 17 months old, holding my husband's hand as we cross the street. Her wild chestnut curls are sticky with peanut sauce. In front of Urban Outfitters, three uniformed police officers surround a white man whose shirt reads: "Y'all Need Jesus." Their cruisers are parked in the street, blocking traffic. "I didn't threaten anyone," the man is saying, palms up. My shoulder brushes one of the officers as we pass, and it feels important, necessary, to grab my daughter's other hand. I don't like our proximity to a man who maybe didn't threaten anyone, but maybe did. There are more officers on the sidewalks. We hear sirens. "Must be a slow night," my husband, Adrian, comments, after buckling our daughter into her car seat. "Not a bad thing," I reply, getting inside. Traffic leaving the outdoor mall is at a standstill. People make illegal U-turns, driving back to the highway. Two firetrucks wail toward us. More cruisers, … [Read more...] about The most recent school shooting makes us wonder: How can we stay?
