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."

Here's where I stand on so-called "reality TV." All those shows that are built around people misbehaving to get attention and claw for fame – in other words, all those Real Housewives shows, and every Big Brother and any show like it – I have absolutely no use for. The talent and competition shows — the real ones, like American Idol and The Voice and So You Think You Can Dance -- I like a lot more, but after several seas ...

'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 manage ...
