It is a bad coincidence for a certain celebrity who has recently split with his wife, that someone has brought this lawsuit against "John Doe" so soon after the split.

BS, Harvey. Death row inmates don't have to appeal their conviction and can get an expedited death sentence.

I had a quick question about Lilo and her sentence on House Arrest. I was wondering how does her 6 month sentence translate into 14 days, i was always under the impression that when you choose house arrest you would have to serve your full sentence or at least 50% of it. I got this info from an attorney in Fresno. BTW Great show guys! watch every day from Fresno

I am answering some Herpes questions here because it seems people do not know anything about it.

1) A condom does not fully protect you against Herpes. Herpes is transmitted by skin to skin contact and the virus can live anywhere in the skin surrounding the genital area, including buttocks and pelvis.
2) Cold sores are oral herpes. If you have oral herpes, and give oral sex, YES, the other person can get genital herpes.
3) Herpes is spread when the virus is active, i.e. outbreak or asymptomatic shedding.
4) Almost 70-80% of population has oral herpes and almost 0% uses condoms or dental dams during oral, so do the math.
5) Best way to prevent spreading herpes is to use Valtrex (or any variation) daily, abstain during outbreaks and use protection during all sexual activity.
6) Herpes is not considered a risk during pregnancy or delivery as long as your OB/GYN is aware.
7) Testing and timelines can be difficult, see # 4.
8) The worst part of Herpes is the stigma attached to it. Generally, outbreaks can be easily managed with medication.
9) All but #4 also apply to HPV.
10) Yes, I do have it...

Someone suggested Hasselhoff - what movie did he make? This A list celebrity is supposed to be movie and TV star - not Hasselhoff. @FallenAngel - plaintiff has a case because both parties discussed STDs and both claimed they were clean - plaintiff was exceedingly stupid for trusting this A list celeb, but if that person infected her, she deserves something in my opinion.

Hey Harvey
Real nice of your good buddy Dorothy Lucy to antagonize
and piss off and intimate Jesse James on good day LA.You could see that he
was going to explode.She needs to apologize,and read his whole book not just pick out parts of it about Sandra.And then she
has the balls to insult him after he left that she is concerned about his kids WTF is wrong with her.
HEY MAX
