UFC Tito Ortiz was arrested yesterday for domestic violence against former adult film star Jenna Jameson. As of last night, ESPN would not say who he hit. TMZ cameras were there to see him get arrested.
Ortiz was arrested as Jenna was seen wearing an arm brace and appearing shaken after a TMZ cameraman talked with her. Jenna said she would press charges in the morning. A restraining order was slapped on Ortiz, who posted bail in the afternoon.
Jameson then said later in the day that she hopes to work things out with Oritz. Ortiz later held a press conference in North Hollywood, where he seemed extremely honest and sincere saying that he did not touch Jenna and is addicted to Oxycontin and that he refuses to let his children see that.
Jenna and Tito have 2 sons and have been together for 6 years. After Ortiz's press conference, Jenna told TMZ that he is just trying to save his career and is spreading lies.
In a truly disturbing part to the story, people who do not like Ortiz took to attacking Jenna about the attack on Twitter, happy that he beat her up. Jenna has said she is going to leave Twitter and close her account, but she hasn't yet.
TMZ was able to obtain a photo of Tito in his jail cell, showing again that cops are on the take from them. TMZ being there from the start has been kind of weird. It seems like a TV show, which TMZ is now, but still, it's real life and for them to be there and have access to the things they had, just seems like an invasion of privacy, but at the same time, it's like Jenna wanted them there.
It really is a battle of he said she said and it really is only going to get uglier.-Dr.FB

This weekend, Saturday Night Live poked fun at Tiger Woods and the domestic violence rumors surrounding him with regards to his cheating. One problem; Rihanna, who had a domestic violence incident happen to her earlier this year was the musical guest.
Was it the smart thing to do to poke fun at a domestic violence incident that we know happened, even though it was denied, be shown when one of the biggest headlines of this year and of recent memory was with Rihanna and her being beaten by former boyfriend Chris Brown?
It may have come off as funny and it was the hot topic of the moment, but was it insensitive to Rihanna? Did they run the skit by her? Did they let her know that they were doing it? If not, it comes off as highly irresponsible by Lorne Michaels and the writers of Saturday Night Live.
Here is the skit below:
What do you think? Was it insensitive to do with Rihanna there?-Dr.FB
Halle Berry was in New York last night for "The Evening Of Awareness" event looking worse for the wear which is hard when you are Halle Berry.
Maybe it had to do with Berry recently became involved with the project of helping out the Jenesse Center, which offers help to domestic violence victims. Berry just announced a short time ago that her mother was a victim of domestic violence.
Halle was quoted ; “I care, I really care about these women and children.” I think she cares and it takes a lot out of her taking on this project to where she looked a little tired. I think we can all relate there are a few things that we care for in life but leave us feeling drained after helping.-Dr.FB

A PSA about domestic violence starring Keira Knightly is being banned overseas. We agree it is very violent, but so is domestic abuse. This is why I am choosing to post the controversial video for you to decide.
So was the needed? Was there another way to get the point across? You tell me.-Dr.FB
