NRL Star Kurt Capewell Is Caught Up In X-rated Porn Scandal

Postado por em em Uncategorized

NRL star Kurt Capewell has been embroiled in an X-rated porn scandal after a video emerged showing him engaging in a sex act with another man. 

Police and the NRL integrity unit were notified last year when a person tried to sell screenshots of the 27-year-old's sex tape.

The 49-minute video was recorded in 2013, when the Penrith Panthers player was working as a carpenter while starting out his rugby league career in local teams.

'I've lived with this for years. I've been concerned more for my family that it could come out and the embarrassment it would cause,' Capewell told

Capewell is now speaking out after the video went viral on porn websites and public forums this week.

The State of Origin star sent a text message to his Penrith teammates on Wednesday, giving them a 'heads up' about the video circulating online.   

'Bit hard to put the full story into words but I was broke and doing some modelling, then I got talked into doing a free fat porno. Unknown to me but it turned out they put a bloke on the other side of the wall,' he wrote. 

'I'm terribly embarrassed and ashamed even though it happened when I was so young.

'It's something I've been dealing with for the past 8 years behind closed doors and I know you will all have my back and stand by me moving forward.'

Capewell told his teammates, who include Nathan Cleary and Josh Mansour, so they would hear the full story from him.

He said though it was hard to tell them everyone in the locker room was supportive and understood his position. 

He said during the shoot he was offered additional money to do the porn video, and because he needed the cash he said yes - not knowing all it entailed

The video was made after Capewell, then 20, responded to an ad to make money doing a photo shoot for a sports clothing and underwear company. 

He said during the shoot he was offered additional money to do the porn video, and because he needed the cash he said yes - not knowing all it entailed. 

Capewell said he was 'young and naive' at the time, and takes full responsibility. 

The film depicts sportswear photos, nude pics, and a video of Capewell performing a variety of X-rated acts.

Capewell, who has a long term girlfriend, said the incident is a reminder to young people to be careful when being offered money for photoshoots. 

The NRL integrity investigated the video last year but didn't take any action because the video was six years old by that time. 

Capewell made his NRL debut in 2016 for the Cronulla Sharks. In 2019 he signed a signed a two-year deal to join Penrith.

Elizabeth Banks, Kate Mara, And Sigourney Weaver Film Call Jane

Postado por em em Uncategorized

Elizabeth Banks, Kate Mara, and Sigourney Weaver were glimpsed for the first time together on the set of Call Jane — a film about a 1960s housewife who who finds herself pregnant unexpectedly, before discovering an underground abortion movement. 

The trio of actresses were seen walking in full sixties clothing in Hartford, Connecticut as production ramped up on the indie drama this week. 

All three ladies looked eye-catching in their vintage duds, as they prepared to shoot scenes at a few locations in the quiet suburb which was lined with vintage cars.

 Banks, 47, was tapped to play pregnant housewife Joy and Weaver stars as Virginia, the leader of the underground abortion movement.  

Prior to the Roe V. Wade decision in 1973,  the legality of abortion was determined by the state, and in the mid-sixties (the period in which Call Jane is set) 44 states had outlawed abortion unless the situation threatened the life or health of the mother which prompted millions of illegal abortions.   

The blonde Zack and Miri Make A free porno clips of mature ladies star was seen sans-baby bump as she strolled to set in a retro patterned jumpsuit with pink sneakers and a fleece for warmth.  

She and Sigourney were seen masked up in the suburb — which was transformed by way of vintage cars and other details of the time. 

Weaver, 71, debuted a blowout with soft curls as she slipped into a pair of khaki pants with an embroidered periwinkle sweater and browned heeled boots.

Mara, 38, was seen rocking a very psychedelic jumpsuit that featured black and white horizontal stripes with retro yellow flowers lining the silhouette. 

She draped a jean jacket over the plunging number and opted for comfort in white converse before slipping into black wooden platforms. 

And unlike her other co-stars her red hair was styled in an up-do with a black head scarf for a very classic sixties look. 

Later, Elizabeth was seen making a quick outfit change as she modeled a beige pencil skirt with a matching high neck shirt tucked into it. 

And the veteran Alien actress was not far behind, as Weaver strolled beside a very helpful production assistant who held an umbrella to shield her from any unexpected rain.

Other actors in the film who have yet to be glimpsed are Homeland's Rupert Friend and Loki star Wunmi Mosaku.

The indie drama is being directed by Carol screenwriter Phyllis Nagy, who said in a a style="font-weight: bold;" class="class" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" targe="_blank" website that she felt the film had a 'timely' narrative, given the climate surrounding women's rights. 

'Call Jane was made for these times - and I have never felt more passionately that our culture is ready to embrace its call for decency, for community, for good will and humor in all things - and above all, its call for necessary change,' she said.

'I feel like the time is now and the moment essential to bring a film like Call Jane into the world. With such cultural uncertainty and when so many of our rights as women are under siege, I know that telling this important story couldn't be more timely or necessary.'

Women's stories: Nagy said she felt the drama was 'timely' given the climate surrounding women's rights, and the movie (which has no release date at this time) will explore the controversial topic of abortion

Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles: Glee Star Becca Tobin Finds A Home

Postado por em em Uncategorized

Actress Becca Tobin found the perfect home on Tuesday's episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles—with one complication.

The gorgeous 1920s house had an all-red velvet room so horrifying that Becca and her pals dubbed it 'the murder room,' and saged it to get the bad energy out.

The former Glee actress, 34, and her husband Zach Martin wanted a Hollywood Hills place with character and privacy that cost less than $3 million.

The first house Josh took her to was Outpost, a 1920s three-bedroom 'gem' he already represented that was selling for $2 million, right within her budget.

Becca hated its red screening room that looked 'like murder,' but liked its price point: $580 per square foot, which was much better than what other places were charging.

The second place, Las Palmas, was a three-bedroom Mediterranean built in 1920, but set too close to the neighbors' homes, with a seriously outdated bathroom and kitchen.

'When clients tell me they want historic charm, they don't want authentic charm,' Josh observed.

'It's kind of annoying when you go to the bathroom and have to pull a chain.'

Becca liked the next place she saw—a charming 1926 home in great shape, from which she could walk to the hotel Chateau Marmont—yet it was too expensive.

Through Josh, she decided to place a $1.8 million bid on Outpost, which she subsequently scored for a little over $1.870 million.

After the sale, Josh greeted her with a bottle of Dom Perignon he had promised her, and walked her into the 'murder' room, where her podcast co-hosts were sitting.

'Welcome to Shambhala!' Josh told her, throwing open the door.

'Welcome home, Becca,' Keltie and Jac whispered, saging the room and offering her a 'ceremonial robe' to put on as she joined them.

'Grab a crystal.'

'Do these idiots come with the house?' Becca joked.

'I'm cleansing this room of the evil,' her pals chanted. 'I'm cleansing this room of the murders. I'm cleansing this room of the free porno pics sites.'

Keltie and Jac held crystals to their foreheads.

'Shoo, Charles Manson,' they called, waving the bad energy toward the door. 'Shoo, Ted Bundy. Shoo John Wayne Gacy.'

'To Josh,' Becca said, toasting him with champagne.
'You turned the nightmare room into a dream.'

Elsewhere in the Hills, Josh Altman, 41, and Matt Altman drove around the Bird Streets, the ritzy enclave where the blocks had avian names.

The brothers had the listing for Oriole, a huge, untouched 'party house' in with an 'entertainer's kitchen,' private theater, infinity pool, full gym and insane views.

They put it up at $21.995 million, but the sellers soon got a $15 million offer through someone who previously represented the house, which might cost Altman his commission.

He did some mental calculations, and realized he might be able to save the situation.

'You're telling me that if I can generate another offer within 24 hours that is higher than this offer, they would accept it?' Altman asked the seller's representative.

As he set to work, his fellow brokers David Parnes, 37, and James Harris, 35, went to see Marguerita, a gorgeous six-bedroom home in Santa Monica, California.

Located a block from the beach, the property had an expansive backyard, pool, and artist's studio, and had just been repainted and restaged by the owners.

At $17.995 million, it was going for $3 million less than the year before, and the couple who lived there, Serene and Ray, were newly motivated.

David and James threw an open house and set up games on the lush lawn, hoping to give those who visited the feeling of what it would be like to live there.

An 'intuitive astrologer' named Victoria then showed up to preview the property for an unnamed celebrity client, promising to 'feel out the energy for her.'

Victoria declared the grounds 'peaceful' and 'stable,' but when she swung her crystals in one bathroom, sensed 'the hint of something' that happened in the 1940s.

'I felt a woman waiting for someone to come home,' she told David, mentioning World War II.

David was sanguine about her findings, saying, 'Whatever it takes to convince the buyer…'

Incredible Photograph Captures Unique Glimpse Inside Hotel Quarantine

Postado por em em Uncategorized

An amateur photographer has captured a unique perspective of what life is like for Australian travellers forced into self-isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.

The man used his phone to take a photograph of quarantined guests at Sydney's Amora Hotel staring longingly out of their window.

Under strict new laws introduced by the Federal Government to stop the spread of Covid-19, thousands of travellers returning to Australia must undergo a mandatory 14-day period of quarantine under police guard.

A Sydney photographer has snapped an image for ages, capturing a unique perspective of what life is like in isolation at the Amora Hotel during the coronavirus pandemic.

A Sydney photographer has snapped an image for ages, capturing a unique perspective of what life is like in isolation at the Amora Hotel during the coronavirus pandemic.

The reluctant photographer, who wished to remain anonymous, said he didn't understand what all the fuss was about after his photo went viral on Reddit. 

'I haven't got any story for this other than I found it interesting that everyone happened to be doing the same thing at the same time which made me think about isolation and how we all aren't very different,' he told Daily Mail Australia.

'I'm just a guy with a camera phone. I don't consider myself a photographer and yeah this a chance encounter.

'I took this on my Google Pixel 4 XL phone.'

In order to get the attention of the subjects in the frame, the man said he went out onto the balcony and waved at them.

'I indicated with my hands that I would like to take a photo and they nodded,' he said.

Australians were quick to heap praise on the man for his photograph.

'Putting aside the creepiness, it's quite poignant actually. Will be looked back upon in the future,' one person said.

'I feel this picture will feature on one of those 'look back' videos about the great coronavirus crisis of 2020 some time in the future,' added another.

A third person compared the photo to the work of a revered 20th century American realist painter known for depicting New York during the Great Depression.

'It's like an Edward Hopper painting,' they wrote.

The intimate view into the rooms has always been a feature of the Amora Hotel for a long time, a former employee explained.

'The Suncorp building was directly opposite and one day a lady came in to the concierge desk to complain,' the hotel worker wrote.

'She outlines to me that she couldn't get any of her work done as there was a crowd of men around her desk.

'I was puzzled as how this was the hotel's problem.

'She told me that a couple was filming a porno clips for free in the window of level 27 and asked me to put a stop to it.'

The concierge worker said a scantily clad couple answered the door and politely offered to stop filming their sex acts.

'This photo is a very sobering contrast!'

The image comes as the first group of return travellers were released from quarantine at the stroke of midnight on Wednesday.

Hundreds of passengers on board the Norwegian Jewel cruise ship were forced into isolation on March 25 at the Swissotel — a five-star Sydney hotel.

Unable to leave the confines of their rooms for two weeks, the 288 Australians are now free to return to their homes.

Thousands more quarantined travellers are also set to be released on Sunday.

Dan Crenshaw Unveils Captain America Glass Eye To Actor Chris Evans

Postado por em em Uncategorized

Hollywood's version of Captain America met a real life version on Capitol Hill this week.

Chris Evans, the blockbuster actor who plays the comic book hero in Marvel's Avengers series, was pictured with House Rep.

Dan Crenshaw on Friday.

But Crenshaw, the Texas Republican who lost an eye during combat service in Afghanistan, had a surprise in store for Evans - a glass eye with the famous Captain America logo.

‘When Captain America sees your Captain America glass eye,' Crenshaw tweeted on Friday.

Crenshaw is a first-term congressman who represents Texas' 2nd Congressional District.

He became a nationally known figure not just because of his military service as a Navy SEAL but also thanks to Saturday Night Live.

A week before last fall's midterm elections, SNL cast member Pete Davidson mocked Crenshaw for resembling ‘a hit man in a free porno game movie.'

The joke sparked outrage, particularly because Crenshaw lost his eye due to an explosion of a bomb detonated by enemy forces in Afghanistan.

A week later, Crenshaw appeared on SNL alongside Davidson, who apologized to the newly elected congressman.

Crenshaw then took the opportunity to mock Davidson in a good-natured sketch, which included jokes about the comedian's recently ended engagement to pop star Ariana Grande.

The congressman also took some shots at Davidson for his looks, saying that the comedian ‘looks like if the meth from Breaking Bad were a person.'

GOP Spends $400,000 Buying Copies Of Rep. Dan Crenshaw's Book

Postado por em em Uncategorized

The National Republican Congressional Committee spent nearly $400,000 on copies of Rep. a style="font-weight: bold;" class="class" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_lank" website Crenshaw's book 'Fortitude,' according to Politico's Playbook. 

The move both boosted Crenshaw's status on the bestseller list - the Texas congressman's been a New York Times bestseller for six weeks now. 

And the books are being used to entice donors to give money to the arm of the Republican Party that's focused on winning back control of the House of Representatives from Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who lost his eye in combat, was elected in 2018 and was one of the good stories that November night for Republicans, who lost control of the House in the midterm election.  

Prior to his election, Crenshaw already had cemented himself as one of the most prominent members of the incoming freshman class thanks to an uncouth joke about his eye patch made by 'Saturday Night Live's' Pete Davidson. 

'You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a china porno free movie,' Davidson said during a segment on 'Weekend Update.' He later apologized. 

A week later - and after he won his race - Crenshaw appeared on 'Saturday Night Live' and did his own 'Weekend Update' segment, the shtick being that he could make fun of Davidson's looks. 

'This is Pete Davidson, he looks like if the meth from "Breaking Bad" was a person,' Crenshaw said to laughs.  

Crenshaw's memoir, 'Fortitude,' was released in early April. 

The NRCC offered signed copies to potential donors. 

'As a strong supporter of Conservative values, I thought you'd like to get one, so we're putting one aside for you for 24 hours,' read one of the NRCC solicitations, according to Playbook. 'Claim it now to make sure you receive your exclusive signed copy of my book, Fortitude.' 

'Not only will you be getting this great book, but you'll also be supporting efforts to take back President Trump's Conservative House majority in November,' it continued. 'Don't miss out on your chance to read about the divisive mob politics that is coming to characterize America, described and explained from my perspective.' 

A party official told Playbook the the promotion raised $1.5 million for the NRCC. 

The NRCC spent $240,800 at Politics and Prose, a D.C.-based private bookstore, filings showed. Playbook reported that an additional $394,800 spent on Crenshaw's book will appear on a future campaign finance filing.
