Rosario Dawson Admits Initial Reluctance to Join ‘Top Five’

*In the upcoming film “Top Five,” Rosario Dawson plays a New York Times journalist tasked with writing a profile on Andre Allen, a comedian who has become a blockbuster film star, but yearns to be respected as a serious actor.

Dawson’s character Chelsea Brown, along with the film itself, so impressed critics and studios at this year’s Toronto Film Festival that it sparked an insane bidding war (eventually won by Paramount, which opens the film on Dec. 12). But Dawson says she wasn’t immediately sold on the part when Rock first pitched it to her.

“Ms. Nine-Meetings-to-Get-You-to-Do-a-Movie,” Rock joked to her at the film’s recent press conference in New York.

“He says that I auditioned him!” Dawson said of Rock over the laughter of journalists.

She went on to explain how difficult is was for her to understand Chelsea based on what was written in the script.

“I felt like that was the one character that wasn’t just perfectly on the page,” she said. “Like I saw what she could potentially be, but it just felt like I wasn’t sure.”

Prince Deletes Himself from Social Media

*It looks like Prince has had enough of social media.

The artist has deleted his Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts and removed his work from YouTube and Soundcloud, just a year after joining the social networking websites.

But Spotify users were spared. His two latest albums, “Art Official Age” and “Plectrum Electrum” are still available on the streaming music site and his official YouTube channel still features three videos, one of an old interview and two clips of the track “Breakfast Can Wait.”

There was no explanation behind the move, which comes just over a month after he took part in a fan question and answer session on his Facebook page. After being flooded with messages, he chose to answer just one question about sound frequencies by submitting a link to a lengthy article on the subject.

B. Smith Found Safe After Being Reported Missing

*B. Smith turned up at a Manhattan diner Wednesday after being reported missing on Tuesday evening, according to New York’s ABC Eyewitness News.

The legendary model, designer and restaurateur, born Barbara Smith, revealed earlier this year that she suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.

The 64-year-old was reported missing by her husband and business partner, Dan Gasby, who said that she took a jitney from New York City to Sag Harbor on Tuesday night, but she got off in Southampton and never arrived at their Sag Harbor home.

ABC reports that friends of Smith say she had gotten back on the jitney and returned to New York City near her old apartment. Authorities were alerted to her whereabouts when she was spotted at La Parisienne Coffee House at 7th Avenue and 57th Street in Manhattan.

When asked if her health was deteriorating, her husband said Smith has never walked away or gotten lost before.

In an interview earlier this year with CBS News, Smith said of her Alzheimer’s, “You do try to hide it from everybody.”

Still, she remained hopeful about her prognosis.

“I think the future’s going to be fine,” she told CBS. “I’m going to do my best to make it work out for me, and for as many people that I can possibly help, too.”

Bill Cosby: Roseanne Jokes about a ‘Tussle’; Camille Still ‘Behind Him’

Nov. 6, 2014: Bill Cosby and his wife Camille share a laugh as they tell a story about collecting one of the pieces in the upcoming exhibit, Conversations: African and African-American Artworks in Dialogue, at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art in Washington.

*Camille Cosby, 70, was most recently seen sitting next to her famous husband while a reporter for the Associated Press asked questions about the multiple sexual assault allegations that have surfaced.

Other than comments from Bill Cosby’s nephew Braxton Cosby – who recently told FarrahGray.com that his uncle was “innocent” – neither Camille nor any of Cosby’s children have reacted publicly to the allegations that were dismissed by Cosby’s lawyer as “unsubstantiated.”

But one family friend tells People.com that Camille, who married Cosby 51 years ago when she was only 19, remains a huge source of support “on every level.”

“She’s behind him,” the source says. “I think that their half-century of marriage and love and accomplishment, that outweighs things like this.”

Meanwhile, Roseanne Barr went on Twitter early Wednesday morning with a selfie showing her face looking battered and swollen.

She captioned it: “Got in a tussle w bill cosby. U shoyld see that mfer.”

Just as quickly, Barr quickly deleted the tweets and explained in another tweet that her worked-over face was from a chemical peel, not Cosby’s paws.

Last Thursday, Barr spoke to the Daily News about Cosby’s rape allegations involving at least 13 women, saying: “I don’t wanna get sued or have (Cosby) send anyone to beat me up, but I think it’s obvious: 13 to 1.”

Mayweather Says Exposing Ms. Jackson’s Abortion was Fair Game

mayweather jackson

*Floyd Mayweather has filed new papers in his legal battle against ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson, in part claiming he did not violate her right to privacy by discussing her abortion in detail on social media … because their relationship was already in the public eye, reports TMZ.

Jackson sued the boxer earlier this year for assault, battery, defamation, invasion of privacy and more.

Floyd is trying to get the several claims dismissed. In new legal documents, he focused on her claim that he violated her right to privacy. His intro is vintage Mayweather:

“At age 37 I am an undefeated boxer. I have been the world champion in five different weight divisions.”

According to TMZ, he goes on to explain that when he met Jackson, “she asked me to help her become famous,” and stated that her only claim to fame was appearing in 7 music videos.

Mayweather says he used his celebrity to give her some press. He says they became so famous, people were interested in every aspect of their relationship, including the breakup…which is why Floyd says he went to social media earlier this year and told the world he ended things with Shantel because she had an abortion behind his back.

“Both parties are public figures. Abortion is a public issue,” Mayweather states in his filing.

He adds, “A public figure involved with another public figure in a public relationship can expect publicity, not privacy, about why it ends.”

Mayweather wants the suit thrown out. A judge has yet to rule.
