For their own good
Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.

Producer hit with sex suits
From the editors of tbt* Tampa Bay Times
By Times Wires
Published December 29, 2007
It's been a busy year for Hollywood producer Jon Peters, who has had two sexual harassment suits brought against him, the New York Post reports. Peters, the moneyman for flicks like Superman Returns, Ali and Batman, was sued Monday by Bianca Hernandez, who maintains his home and office, the Post reports. She says Peters continually harassed her, touching her breasts and buttocks, tried to push her onto a bed when he was naked, tried to kiss her breasts and offered her money for the horizontal mambo. She also says he threatened to murder her and her daughters if she complained about it. When she complained to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the paper says, she was accused of stealing a $10,000 lamp. She's suing for defamation over that, too. Two people likely to agree at Adriana and Andrew Silveira, live-in servants at the producers' beach house in Malibu. When Adriana got pregnant in June 2006, Peters allegedly told Andrew she needed to get an abortion or they would lose their jobs. Of course they didn't comply, so Peters fired them by e-mail. What a guy! And all this is after his former assistant, Shelly Morita, filed a sexual harassment suit against him last year (that's going to trial in April). Maybe his four divorces should have been seen as a sign of instability.
Hannah Montana is single
We'll spare you the Achy, Breaky Heart jokes and tell you that 15-year-old Miley Cyrus has called it quits with her 15-year-old boyfriend Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. What's that? The tourmates were dating? True, says the New York Post. "They just broke up, but not many people even knew they were going out," a source tells the tabloid. Apparently they were trying to keep things a secret when Miley kissed Nick on the cheek during a concert, letting the cat out of the bag. But now it doesn't matter, and we're just glad we don't have to write about another high-profile teen pregnancy. For now ...
Lesbian liplock in cruz closet
Penelope Cruz likes to keep it all in the family. At least, that's how it looks when it comes to the new video for her brother Eduardo's new single Cosas Que Contar. In the video (see it at blogs.tampabay.com/juice), Penny and her sister Monica are dressed like naughty librarians while dubbing in dialogue for a lesbian porn flick. When Eduardo starts to sing in the recording room, things get a little hot and heavy between the two siblings, who take to acting out their dialogue. Yikes! The rest involves rather disturbing clinches and gyrations between the two sisters, who make unsettling eyes at their pop idol bro. Looks like the song's title, which can be translated as "Things To Tell," was taken a little too literally by the Cruz family.
Barton will still host party
Mischa Barton may have been arrested for DUI last week, but that won't keep her from hosting a New Year's celebration in Vegas, Us says. "We are aware of Mischa Barton's incident last night, but at present she is still expected to host the CatHouse grand opening at Luxor Las Vegas on Dec. 29th," a rep for the new lounge said. "We will let you know if anything changes." Since Barton was busted for weaving in her car while toasted and had some weed and pills on her (so says the L.A. County Sheriff), perhaps hanging out in Vegas on the drunkiest night of the year isn't the smartest thing to be doing.
