Oksana Grigorieva campaigns against violence

Jun 13 2013, 11:34am CDT | by

Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva is campaigning to prevent violence against women.

The 43-year-old singer-songwriter - whose former partner pleaded no-contest to a misdemeanor battery charge against her in 2011 - has decided to face up to her negative experience by being guest speaker at the Artists Against Abuse Gala in the US.

The event will raise funds for an organization named The Retreat, which helps find residential shelters for women and their children who have suffered abuse, as well as provide a 24 hour hotline and legal support for the victims.

Speaking to RadarOnline.com, Oksana said: "You should never feel alone when you are in fear. I am very honored to be a part of the Artists Against Abuse. It is truly a cause that is close to my heart."

Oksana - who has two-year-old daughter, Lucia, with Mel - accused the 'Mad Max' star of hitting her with a closed fist and breaking a veneer on her tooth. Mel admitted to slapping her but said he did it because she was "shaking and tossing" their baby Lucia around while arguing.

Jeffrey Friedman, executive director of The Retreat, said: "Oksana's brave and personal decision to stand with The Retreat and speak out against domestic abuse is a testament to her resilience. She is lending a voice to many people who can't speak out for themselves due to fear. We are so thankful for her support of our critical work."

‘The Expendables 3′ Explodes into Theaters with Dream Team Cast

Aug 15 2014 1:44pm CDT | Source: All HipHop

If there was a dream team cast of Hollywood movies like the US Olympic basketball teams of old, this movie would be the one that brought everyone together for the gold.  This time with a few new characters in the mix, The Expendables 3 is back with an over the top cast and more explosions than you could imagine. While the movie still keeps the original Expendables cast, Stallone also recruited some of boxing and MMA’s best to be part of this epic action packed flick, that is at times funn ...

'Expendable' Indeed: The Best Of A Bad Bunch Is Still Pretty Bad

Aug 15 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Just be glad it isn't The Expendables 3D. The third installment in Sylvester Stallone's jobs program for expired action heroes is easily the best of the bunch, which is not to say it's any good. The Expendables series -- basically what we'd get if Marvel released Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America and then sat on The Avengers for 25 years or so — aims low and somehow still manages to underwhelm. Its latest itera ...

Movie Review: ‘The Expendables 3′

Aug 15 2014 2:21am CDT | Source: CBS Philly

By Bill Wine KYW Newsradio 1060 PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s a more-of-the-same action threequel, aimed squarely at gun-worshipping viewers unconcerned with the possibility of a been-there-done-that letdown.   (2 stars out of 4)   The Expendables 3 is yet another reunion for ’80s action stars sporting automatic weapons and narrowly escaping incendiary explosions, and once again about as check-your-brains-at-the-door expendable and disposable as movies get. Re ...

Over the past few days, I’ve lingered over photos of The Expendables 3 cast for a few seconds here and there, trying to figure out if any of them were interesting enough to write about. I was only really paying attention to Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham though. Before today, I didn’t realize that the film also stars Wesley Snipes (!!!), Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford (!!) and other assorted ...
