Actor Anthony Edwards Claims He And A Friend Were Molested & Raped By Broadway Producer Gary Goddard

Hollywood isn't the only showbiz town with a sexual assault problem. Actor Anthony Edwards has come forward to claim he and his friend were molested by Broadway producer and theme-park designer Gary Goddard (above, insert).

Actor Anthony Edwards has come forward to claim he and his friend were molested by Broadway producer and theme-park designer Gary Goddard (above, insert). Related: Ellen Page Accuses Brett Ratner Of Homophobic, Misogynistic Behavior While Filming X-Men 3 In a powerful post on Medium, Edwards recalled meeting Goddard when he was 12, and described how the producer "quickly became a dominant force in [his] life" as a mentor and role model. But the mentorship program, so to speak, took a dark turn when Goddard "exploited" Edwards and his friend. The actor continued: "My vulnerability was exploited. I was molested by Goddard, my best friend was raped by him — and this went on for years. The group of us, the gang, stayed quiet." Because Edwards felt responsible for getting abused, he remembered not being able to tell his mother the truth when she asked him about rumors that the producer was a pedophile. At that time, Edwards was 14 years old, but he said the resulting damage stuck with him for years: "The resulting damage to the emotional development of a child is deep and unforgivable. Only after I was able to separate my experience, process it, and put it in its place could I accept this truth: My abuse may always be with me, but it does not own me." The now-55-year-old claimed he ran into Goddard 22 years ago and confronted him for his actions. Edwards felt a "temporary sense of relief" when the producer allegedly expressed remorse and said he had gotten help. Related: Louis C.K. & Ed Westwick's Projects Have Been Scrapped & Put On Hold But Edwards' feelings of rage resurfaced four years ago when Goddard was in the press for alleged sexual abuse. For those who don't know, Goddard was targeted in a pair of lawsuits from aspiring actor Michael Egan that also named X-Men director Bryan Singer. Egan and the other anonymous British man both dismissed their suits. As for Edwards, he's hoping that shedding a light on his abuse can help break the stigma of the subject and encourage more victims to open up about their trauma, concluding: "I've learned a lot in these last four years. Most importantly, I've learned that I'm not alone. One in six men have an abusive sexual experience before they turn 18. Secrecy, shame and fear are the tools of abuse, and it is only by breaking the stigma of childhood sexual abuse that we can heal, change attitudes, and create safer environments for our children."

Maci Bookout Speaks Publicly For The First Time About Ryan Edwards" Most Recent Arrest…

The Teen Mom OG star appeared on the most recent episode of Kailyn Lowry's Coffee Convos podcast today, and talked a lot about parenting, and TV, and her ex, Ryan Edwards. Related: Teen Mom 2 Airs Jenelle Evans Road Rage Incident The topic of Edwards' recent arrest came up early on the show, and Bookout was quick to note that everything was very much up in the air after her ex was booked on drug charges a few weeks ago (below): "I'll be honest, I have no idea what state he's in because he's not allowed to be around any of us. He can't just be in the same location as me and the family. So I have no idea. He's not allowed to contact us or anything like that. But I mean, he did get arrested, I don't know … I mean, I do know why, but I don't want to say. I feel better that he is in jail because I know he's safe there, if that makes sense. I know he's not driving around. He's not doing something that could potentially hurt him or an innocent person. So it sucks, crappy situation for everyone." A crappy situation for everyone, indeed. Related: Farrah Abraham's Replacement Is BRISTOL PALIN?! Even though Bookout herself is long past gone from Edwards' life, they do (and will forever) share a son in Bentley, and so Maci points out that it's difficult for her to explain these things to her soon-to-be-ten-year-old boy (below): "It's Bentley's dad. Although Bentley's about to be 10, I'm not sure how much time [Ryan] can make up now, but still, I mean, no one ever wants to tell their child that something terrible has happened to their parent. … [He] understands. He doesn't ever ask questions. We fill him in on what's going on and as sad as it is, the reason he doesn't ask questions is because it's kind of just always been." And maybe most importantly, Maci pointed out that her relationship with Ryan's parents, Jen and Larry Edwards, is still very strong -- and Bentley will benefit from that (below): "Any time anything has ever gone on that's really bad, his main concern is being able to spend time with his Mimi and Papa. So, Taylor and I, and Jen and Larry, always just make sure to … for us to always be … I mean we're not always going to get along or agree with each other, but the four us do a really good job of making sure that everything is good for Bentley and that Bentley still gets to spend time with them and in that aspect everything is normal for Bentley because again, that is what he's used to, is being able to see Jen and Larry." Tough stuff for everyone, no doubt. We feel for you, Maci!!! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Not even a day after Teen Mom star Kailyn Lowry called him -- and his wife -- out on their relationship in a very public way, Edwards' own ex and costar Maci Bookout is taking real legal action against her former flame. Related: Mackenzie Edwards Insists Ryan Is Sober After Arrest… According to media reports coming out on Friday morning, 26-year-old Bookout has filed for two orders of protection against Edwards, both in Hamilton County Circuit Court in Tennessee. The first lists Bookout's husband, Taylor McKinney, while the second lists Maci herself, as well as her three children -- Bentley, 9, Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 22 months. A judge will apparently hear the cases on Monday morning. It's not clear exactly when Bookout filed those orders of protection, but they would appear to be closely in tandem with Edwards' recent legal trouble -- an arrest at his Tennessee home back on Tuesday for violating his probation from a previous heroin possession case. More may come to light Monday after a judge sits down with the orders in open court, but at least one thing is clear now: mama bear is trying to do what she feels is right to protect her family.

White Restaurant Owner Pleads Guilty To Enslaving & Physically Abusing Black Mentally Disabled Employee Over A Five Year Period

A white restaurant owner in South Carolina named Bobby Paul Edwards is now facing a maximum of 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to enslaving and physically abusing a developmentally disabled black employee over a five-year period. In a news release put out by the Department of Justice on Tuesday, we learn that Edwards pleaded guilty to one count of enforced labor of John Christopher Smith. He admitted to using violence, threats, and intimidation to make Smith work more than 100 hours a week without pay. Related: YouTuber Arrested For Active Shooter "Prank" At Disney World Smith, who has been diagnosed with delayed cognitive development, is now in his thirties, but had been working for the restaurant since he was 12. The abuse began in 2009 when Edwards became manager of the establishment. The release described Edwards' behavior of beating Smith with a belt and yelling racial slurs at him. To make Smith work faster, Edwards would hit him with pots and pans and burn his bare neck using hot tongs. In October 2014, Smith was removed from the restaurant after cops received a complaint about the abuse. Assistant Attorney General John Gore said in the statement: "Human trafficking through forced labor can happen on farms, in homes, and as today's case shows, in public places, such as restaurants. Edwards abused an African-American man with intellectual disabilities by coercing him to work long hours in a restaurant without pay. Combatting human trafficking by forced labor is one of the highest priorities of this Justice Department and today's guilty plea reflects our commitment to seeking justice on behalf of victims of human trafficking." Edwards' sentencing date has not been scheduled. We certainly hope justice is served. [Image via Horry County Sheriff's Department.].....»»

Ryan Edwards" Pregnant Wife Is Allegedly In "Denial" About The Teen Mom OG Star"s "Very Serious" Issues

According to a recent report, a pregnant Mackenzie Standifer is in total "denial" about the Teen Mom OG star's drug issues. As you surely know, Mrs. Edwards defended the MTV vet after he was arrested last month on a petition to revoke warrant. Following the highly publicized arrest, Mackenzie shared that "everything is fine" and claimed the recent jail stint was a part of a previous legal case. Related: Spencer & Heidi KILLED The Hills Reunion! Well, it appears that not EVERYONE is convinced that Ryan is "fine," especially since Edwards' ex and baby momma Maci Bookout filed for two orders of protection against him. To make matters worse, an insider has claimed that Ryan's pregnant lady is completely unaware at how bad the situation is. The tipster spilled to Us Weekly: "Mackenzie is in complete abject denial about Ryan's drug addiction and issues surrounding how very, very serious it truly is. Mackenzie only wants to focus on having his baby and seems to be hoping that this will help him to be inspired to live a clean and sober life." Oof. We have a feeling the reality TV personality is going to need some serious help. The source added: "Ryan denies the seriousness of the drug addiction, like any addict will do, and Mackenzie chooses to believe him." How sad. In case you forgot, Ryan entered rehab in May 2017, after he was caught on camera dosing off while driving en route to his wedding. Reportedly, a big portion of the recently filmed TMOG reunion is about Edwards' sobriety. It's said that those who commented on the situation are truly afraid that Edwards will die due to his drug problem. The confidant explained: "There was real concern for Ryan's sobriety at the reunion and he was urged to get further treatment by close to the show off-camera, but refused. There is a genuine and real fear that Ryan could die because of his drug addiction." Man, oh man. Hopefully, Ryan and Mackenzie have wake up calls sooner than later... because it sounds like they both need one! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

3 Doors Down Guitarist Dead With No One To Blame But Himself

I can’t picture Alabama being linked to anything more profound than college football. I’m pretty sure a good portion of that state still washes their clothes in primitive tin tubs with hand washers down near the water hole or fresh water well. But allegedly that place has medical professionals and one of them took care of the former guitarist for 3 Doors Down. Physician Dr. Richard Snellgrove was acquitted after being accused of supplying celebrity Matthew Roberts with enough pills to make his problems, and life, end permanently. Anything more than three Xannies at a time tends to be kryptonite for any guitarist who believes that they are a superman. Jurors acquitted an Alabama physician accused of prescribing drugs that killed a former guitarist for rock band 3 Doors Down. The not guilty verdict was returned Monday in the case of Dr. Richard Snellgrove, court documents show. Snellgrove had been indicted on 13 counts of unlawful distribution of drugs and health care fraud tied to the 2016 death of Matthew Roberts. Prosecutors said Snellgrove prescribed drugs to Roberts even though he knew Roberts struggled with addiction. Snellgrove’s lawyer, Dennis Knizley, said the physician’s actions were reasonable and prosecutors targeted Snellgrove because Roberts was famous. Sex, drugs, and alternative rock. Is there really any other way to live life? Matthew may have been an addict but at least he made more of himself than being just another junkie in his mother’s basement. He was on TV. Sometimes you come out on the other side of a bender a new person. Sometimes you die. The takeaway here is we have one dead guitarist whose song will probably encourage you to purchase a past season Guy Fieri-type shirt as it blares in the background of your local Ross. Some people who have passed on to the great beyond wish they still had that kind of pull after they’ve left Earth for good.
