Sugar Bits - Obscenity Complaints Filed Against Richard Gere

  • Lawyers have filed obscenity complaints in India courts against Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty after he grabbed and kissed her repeatedly at an AIDS awareness event. Next time, Richard should probably read up on foreign customs before travelling. - AP
  • Kristin Cavallari has found a way to capitalize on her fame by starting a bidding war between Tao and Pure to host her birthday bash (it's already up to $100,000) and selling pics of herself making out with Nick Zano. Way to milk those 15 minutes! - Page Six
  • Paula Abdul was evidently heckled by fellow passengers after demanding first class service on an airline with no first class. One passenger even said, "You're no Sanjaya!" Ouch! - The Scoop
  • Dave Chappelle broke the Laugh Factory record for longest stand-up performance last night by taking to the stage for six hours and seven minutes! Guess he wants to get back in the comedy game! - AP
  • Heidi Montag says that she was LC's "ticket to Hollywood" and her former friend can't get into clubs without her. Spencer meanwhile wants us all to know that Heidi has the world's greatest boyfriend. These two are a piece of work, huh? - US Weekly

richard gere knows the customs in india, he has been there many times and has a close relationship with the dalai lama, why he would do this confuddles me. who was heidi before lc? who was lc before kirsten cavallari? i vote to eradicate all of these nobodys from our computer screens slowly but surely they will take them away

Ginger I don't know if you heard Shilpa comment on this but she was shocked that he did that. She is an actress that is respected in Indian culture and knows that this would upset her fans. She would have never done this. He was wrong. He knows what this culture is about and he showed a lot of disrespect towards it. And it made it worse because he was there to make people more aware of hiv/aids. He was just wrong.

Heidi and Spencer deserve each other. What gigantic TOOLS. Is Spencer going to come after me now for calling him a tool? Afterall, according to him, you can't call someone a tool in L.A. ;)

If you look at the whole video of Richard Gere, at the beginning he pulls away a couple of times and the Shilpa Shetty pulls him on stage, closer to her. She complimented him on his role in Shall We Dance, so he parodied it on stage, and only kissed her on the cheek, not the lips. Lots of Bollywood films have kissing. The same people who burn an effigy of Richard Gere probably protest those too, but we just don't hear about it as much. They sure aren't the majority in India's population.

Richard Gere did go overboard and I do wish he would have thought about the difference in culture..esp for someone who I believe has studied about Asian religions (isn't he Buddhist?) and culture to a decent extent. I would've felt odd being hugged and kissed like that on a stage here in the U.S. even. I just want to point out again how much the PopSugar members rock..because I have since stopped going to TMZ b/c it's just too annoying a website now, but the people who posted about the Richard Gere incident included a lot of racist, ignorant, and just plain..stupid..people! I love that this site is nothing like that at all!! :O) Also, I think all the Laguna beach girls..esp Kristin..are way over their 15 mins!!

I'm so sick of Kristin. And I can't believe Heidi! I hated spencer already, but obviouslly Heidi didn't care about Lauren very much, otherwise they wouldn't be going through all of this! I don't know, but I think Lauren is much better off without them. She is the one who got their names out. And I'm sure if it wasn't for the the first season of the HIlls, Spencer probably wouldn't have met heidi.

He should have known better if not because of his religious beliefs. WTF was he thinking? You must respect other countries laws and cultural beliefs when visiting. ________________ They showed you who they really are, now believe them!

A good buddhist man wouldn't hold another's woman hand and keeps kissing it for half an hour when he's getting married also!

Ginger the man is a very distant friend of the dalai lama! What make you think he is so together? I am a Buddhist and have lived with many buddhists, they are just like anyone. You get a bad buddhist as well as a good one. I'm telling you a good buddhist man wouldn't keep kissing another woman in front of the camera. He should have more sensitive especially if his friend is from a different culture!

Spencer and Heidi will be nobodies soon enough.. lame ass people with fame complexes but zero talent and work ethics tend to dissappear.. or make asses of themselves for the sake of our enjoyment.. so rock on H&S. Gere should have understood that certain cultures take public displays of affection and touching seriously and are truely offended by it. It would be as offensive as if Adrian Brody had fondled Halle breasts with his penis exposed while kissing her at the Oscars while she squirmed and tried to break free. There would have been public outcry and lawsuits, ect. To us no big deal with what Gere pulled..but to other cultures it was a voilation and a offense. ____________________________________________________________ "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction."

OOOOOO I hate that Heidi even more now, and Spencer is SOOOO stupid. I hope she had a botched job. They make me so angry. I can't imagine one of my friends treating me the way they do to Lauren.

Well, at least filing obscenity complaints in court is a more reasonable response than burning effigies of the man.
