In The Latest Of #MeToo, NBC’s Natalie Morales Says A Hollywood Director Told Her To ‘Show Herself’ In Order To Be Famous

Hollywood has been on a deep cleanse since the allegations against Harvey Weinstein broke. Numerous Hollywood influecers including Oliver Stone, Ben Affleck, and Chris Savino have been accused of being abusers at an almost daily rate. In the most recent toss of accusations, 38 women have come forward in a Los Angeles Times report to claim that film director James Toback of “The Pick-up Artist” sexual abused them. Shortly after, NBC’s Natalie Morales included herself in the group of woman.

Toback is being described as a street prowler who preyed on women looking for work.

In the investigation piece published by the L.A. Times 38 women stepped forward to accuse the Hollywood film director and writer of taking advantage of them. The number quickly shot up to over 200 when more women contacted the Times to share their stories. The majority of accounts recall being approached by Toback while on the streets of Manhattan. He’d offer them a chance to have a role in one of his movies, lure them to his hotel room for what they thought were auditions and interviews, and exact a range of unwanted sexual advances on them.

Morales allegedly endured similar experiences when she was just beginning her TV career.

On this past Monday’s airing of “Access Hollywood,” the Brazilian-Puerto Rican reporter recalled an inappropriate encounter with Toback. Morales was 25 and living in New York at the time and had not quite yet hit a stride in her career. “He came up to me. I was coming home from work in Central Park,” Morales explained. “Out of nowhere: ‘Hey, I’m a filmmaker, has anybody told you you have that look.”

After attempting to skirt Toback’s advances around the park, Morales says he propositioned her.

“So I’m in Central Park, doing my walk, and he follows me in,” Morales, who has been reporting on the Weinstein Scandal with “Access Hollywood,” further explained. “I’m like, ‘there are thousands of people here. Nothing to be concerned about.’ He’s like, ‘No I’m writing a screenplay right now for this movie called ‘Two Girls and a Guy.’ Then he starts–let’s just put it this way, he makes it very clear with the conversation, as I’m walking and he’s walking along, that he wants to get me into a secluded area of the park, which I did not go there.”

Toback told Morales, “If you want to be in the movies, you have to be willing to show yourself.”

In her “Access Hollywood” interview, Morales shared how she attempted to brush Toback off and finally left once his language become more explicit. “He also proceeded to say ‘if you want to be in the movies, you have to be willing to show yourself,’” Morales said. “I’m like, ‘I’m leaving right now. I don’t want to be in movies. I just want to make money, have a career.’ I left.”

Morales’ account of her interaction with Toback appears to align closely with the claims made by the 38 other women in the Times report. Shortly after her “Access Hollywood” segment, Morales called for women to speak out against their assailants. ‘I want to say all to the women, don’t blame themselves, you’re going about your day, he approaches you. You didn’t ask or want any of this,” Morales said.

Since the break of the LA Times story, numerous calls have been made to the Los Angeles Police Department regarding Toback. Meanwhile, the Manhattan district attorney’s office in New York has opened up a sex crimes hotline for Toback accusers as well.

This Quietly Posted IMDB Page Could Mean ‘Coco 2’

To say our worlds were rocked when Pixar finally gave us a touching film about la cultura a few years ago would be the biggest understatement of the century. ‘Coco,’ the 2017 American 3D computer-animated fantasy starring Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt filled our hearts and also brought us to tears. Still, as satisfying as the film was, there’s no doubt it left us craving more. And it looks like we might just get it.

An IMDB page for Coco 2 has been created and I’m sorry but I can’t stop freaking out!!

According to IMDB user anthandsoc-95189 who appears to have long had the inside scoop on upcoming films, ‘Coco 2: Return To the Land Of the Living’ is in the works! Some digging around has also revealed that another sight might have information on the plot and characters of the sequel film. Of course, this information has yet to be confirmed and might be purely a wish, but if it is we’ll dream big!

According to IMDB ‘Coco 2’ will take place 6 years after the first film

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

The IMDB page says “It’s been 6 years since the events happened for Miguel. But when Hector, Imelda, and his great grand-abuelos need Miguel’s help to come back to the Land of the Living because some mysterious sinister masked skeleton is haunting and rules their world with an iron fist and sword and hates music.”

Which means, if IMDB is correct, we haven’t seen the last of Mama Coco!

Sweet Coco could have a really big role in the new film!!

Of course, other sites have other insights into the could-be sequel…

‘Coco’ / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Because of course everyone has an opinion!

According to Fandom.com ‘Coco 2’ will take place six years after the first film.

We’ll see Miguel’s family attempt to throw him a fiesta, but sadly Miguel, still upset about Mama Coco’s death, will be upset.

When Miguel meets a sophisticated, ghostly and well-bred skeletal spirit Miguel will attempt to return to The Land Of The Dead for a vacation.

Now that’s an insane idea for a spring break.

In this version of the sequel, Miguel will a dark black hole to go back to The Land Of The Dead, to see Papa Hector and Mamma Imelda.

Of course, Miguel will be astonished when he sees his old family members for another time and finally gets to see Mama Coco.

Soon enough, Miguel is racing against time, once again, to avoid being a skeleton.

But this time, Marcel might not be so bothered by the idea of living amongst the dead for forever.

Of course, all of this is speculative. Who knows if Pixar has plans for a sequel in the works, but as one fan points out this clip by Pixar on the DVD release has some great hints!

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.
