Terri Seymour attacker Janice Thibodeaux pleads not guilty

Terri SeymourLooks like the woman accused of attacking Terri Seymour has pleaded not guilty to the charges brought against her. Janice Thibodeaux was charged with misdemeanour battery and assault yesterday morning following her altercation with Seymour, the ex-girlfriend of , and appeared in court to answer the claims.

A Los Angeles judge set her bail at $20,000. She is due to appear in court again on June 4. If convicted of misdemeanour battery, Thibodeaux faces a maximum six months in county jail and a fine of $2,000. The misdemeanour assault charge carries a maximum one year prison term and $10,000 fine. Thibodeaux is accused of assaulting Seymour outside Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, the site of where Cowell’s TV show American Idol was being filmed on Tuesday.

It has been claimed the music mogul has ordered his personal security team to protect Seymour until she feels safe again. Police claim Thibodeaux asked Seymour if she was still dating Cowell - who she split from last November after a six-year relationship - and then tried to choke her. However, Thibodeaux has revealed she was unhappy with Cowell’s behaviour towards his fellow ‘American Idol’ judge. She told a US website: “I wasn’t cool with Simon Cowell choking Paula Abdul on the show last week and with her crying-out ‘help’ as he did so. Nobody said anything about that so I wanted to confront him about it because that is not appropriate behavior, is it?”

Paula Abdul Conflicting press reports and the overall loopy nature of American Idol judge makes it hard to pin down the answer, but there’s a lot of rumor regarding the Idol panelist and drug abuse. The burning question seems to be, is she addicted…or not?

An upcoming issue of will reveal that Paula Abdul suffered painkiller addiction and sought treatment for this affliction, but practically on the heels of giving the interview Abdul has denounced pretty much the entire thing. “I was quoted as something I didn’t say,” she tried to explain the situation on a recent radio show.

So…was Paula Abdul ever addicted to painkillers? Did she go to rehab for this problem? She’s saying no…but only after she said yes first. Confused? That’s just classic Paula Abdul.

Entertainment Industry Reacts to Hudson Tragedy

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Music, Breaking News,

Jennifer Hudson“I’m planning on touring,” smiled and spoke enthusiastically only weeks ago. “There’s more films and more music and stuff like that [in the future],” she said. “I want to start a fashion line as well, start writing music.” After her breakout performance in Dreamgirls, appearing as Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant in the runaway hit chick flick Sex and the City and with a new album and movie already making waves, Jennifer Hudson’s life seemed charmed. Today, the effervescent star is at the center of a grisly tragedy.

Engaged to David Otunga and on the brink of what appears to be an extremely successful career, Hudson talked of her many future plans. “It’s gonna be a production,” she said of her wedding. “I have so many visions for it right now - I get to put that together.”

Over the weekend, Hudson’s mother and brother were victims of domestic violence, events which proved fatal for both. On Monday, the star was in Chicago identifying the Julian, 7, who had gone missing after the killings took place.
