<![CDATA[Boston Journalist Says Family Member Was Abused by Spacey]]> Tue, 07 Nov 2017 23:24:15 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/213*120/470385926-Kevin-Spacey-Old-Vic.jpg

A well-known former Boston TV news anchor says she will release details Wednesday about the alleged sexual abuse of one of her family members by Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey.

Heather Unruh has called an 11:30 a.m. press conference at a Boston hotel where she said she will detail the circumstances surrounding the alleged sexual abuse of a family member by Spacey on Nantucket.

Joining her will be her family member's attorney, Mitchell Garabedian, who represented many of the victims in the Boston clergy sex abuse scandal.

This would be just the latest in a growing number of allegations against the "House of Cards" star.

"Star Trek" actor Anthony Rapp last week claimed that Spacey made sexual advances against him in 1986, when he was 14. In the days since, numerous others have also come forward to make various allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Spacey. London police are reportedly investigating Spacey for a 2008 sexual assault.

Even before those allegations surfaced, Unruh revealed in the midst of the Harvey Weinstein scandal last month that Spacey had assaulted someone close to her.

"The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me-- #truth time," she tweeted. "I was a Kevin Spacey fan until he assaulted a loved one. Time the dominoes fell."

As the allegations against Spacey continued to surface, Unruh has shown her support for Rapp and the other victims on Twitter. 

"I applaud your courage Actor Anthony Rapp @albinokid. You are not alone," she said last week on Twitter.

Spacey has not responded to the mounting allegations but apologized to Rapp for what he called "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior."

The two-time Emmy winner has not been arrested or charged with any crime. A publicist said last week that Spacey is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment."

<![CDATA[Gaga and Biden Release PSA Video on Sexual Assault]]> Thu, 26 Oct 2017 17:29:41 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/213*120/GagaBiden.jpg

As stories of sexual assault and harassment continue to make headlines, Lady Gaga and former Vice President Joe Biden have reunited to create a minute-long public service announcement on sexual assault.

The video, posted on Gaga's Twitter account Wednesday, shows the "Till It Happens to You" singer sitting next to Biden with arms resting on his shoulders. Biden gently taps on her hand as he introduces Gaga as a surviving victim of sexual assault.

Biden says he admires her courage as a "fierce advocate" with a "voice" for those abused.

"It's on us. It's on everyone to intervene, to stop abuse when they see it and when they hear about it to intervene," Biden says.


Gaga continues by reminding viewers that men too are abused.

"We're here to remind you that it's important to reach out to someone in your life that you can trust and to know that they will be there to help you," she says.

Originally launched by Biden and former President Barack Obama back in 2014, the "It's On Us" campaign works to end sexual assaults on college campuses. Both Biden and Gaga have been promoting the campaign.

Last year, Biden introduced Gaga's "Til It Happens To You" performance at the 2016 Academy Awards. The song was featured in the 2015 documentary "The Hunting Ground" and nominated for an Oscar that following year.

<![CDATA[Deaf Singer Stuns 'AGT' Judges, Brings Audience to Tears]]> Thu, 08 Jun 2017 16:12:37 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/213*120/agt+mandy+harvey.jpg

When Mandy Harvey took the stage on “America’s Got Talent” carrying her ukulele, she appeared as yet another singer stepping in front of the judges to share her voice.

And she did. The only difference is, she couldn’t hear it.

The 29-year-old deaf singer-songwriter who was born in Ohio and raised in Colorado lost her hearing when she was 18 years old due to a connective tissue disorder, which deteriorated her nerves.

She had just begun studying vocal music education at Colorado State University when she says she got what she thought was an ear infection.

“It just got worse and worse and by Christmas I was borderline legally deaf in both ears,” Harvey said.

She ultimately left the music program and continued to study education.

“Everything that I’d ever wanted was just going away and I couldn’t stop it,” she said.

But her father knew that his daughter, who had been singing since the age of 4, still “had the music in her.”

Harvey, standing without shoes on the AGT stage, uses her feet to feel the tempo through the floor then sings using her muscle memory and visual tuners.

“Music now isn’t about the sound, it’s about the feeling,” she said. “It’s not the dream that I always had. That’s OK, because I showed up and I did something I never believed I could do.”

Harvey went on to perform a song she wrote called “Try,” a song she said was inspired by her journey back to music. 

"After I lost my hearing I gave up but I want to do more with my life then just give up," she told the judges. 

“I don’t think you’re going to need a translator for this,” judge Simon Cowell said seconds before hitting his golden buzzer, sending Harvey through to the live rounds.

“Honestly I never think I’m going to be surprised or amazed by people and then you turn up,” he said. “Just the fact that you are you but it was your voice, your tone, the song was beautiful.”

An emotional Harvey walked off the stage in shock.

“What just happened?” she shouted.

<![CDATA[Mystery Swirls Around Brutal Home Invasion of RHONJ Star ]]> Wed, 07 Jun 2017 06:05:35 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/213*120/dina+manzo+home+invasion.jpg

Nearly a month after a former "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star and her millionaire boyfriend were victimized in a brutal weekend home invasion that left both traumatized and with facial injuries, sources familiar with the probe tell NBC 4 New York investigators don't appear much closer to making an arrest. 

The investigation into the May 13 attack on Dina Manzo, 46, and David Cantin, 37, in Holmdel remains active and ongoing, the sources said.

The couple had walked into their home that Saturday night to find two masked robbers already inside, according to sources and law enforcement officials. 

[[238904721, C]]

The attackers rushed toward them, beating the man with a baseball bat and punching the woman, sources said. The couple was then bound together in the home. The robbers went through the house and stole cash and jewelry before fleeing, prosecutors said. Both victims were treated for facial injures, but were otherwise expected to be physically OK, officials said. 

"Dina and David are obviously shaken up from the traumatic and violent home invasion and robbery," the pair's attorney Andrew Brettler said in a statement shortly after the attack. "No one should ever have to go through what they did. They are grateful to law enforcement and the other emergency responders and appreciate everyone’s concern and well-wishes."

It wasn't the first home invasion at the home; the previous owners were also targeted. Neighbors said they were concerned they too could become victims.

[[413825603, C]]

Bravo hasn't commented on the investigation. Manzo appeared on the first two seasons of the reality TV show before leaving the series.

[[421451924, C]]

She returned for the sixth season in 2014, then left again. Prior to that she tried to launch her own series about party planning called "Dina's Party" on HGTV; it was canceled after two seasons. Manzo remains close with former co-star Teresa Giudice and is the godmother of her daughter. 

Cantin, a New Jersey native, blazed new trails in the car dealership industry with his financial and business acumen and became co-owner of one of the largest dealerships in the world. He was diagnosed with leukemia several years ago and directed philanthropic energies toward battling pediatric cancer.

Anyone with information on the home invasion is asked to contact Detective Eric Hernando of the Holmdel Township Police Department at (732) 946-2820 or Detective Wayne Raynor of the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office at (800) 533-7443.

Winter is coming to Harvard.

The Ivy League university is planning to offer a "Game of Thrones"-themed class starting this fall.

According to TIME, the Folklore and Mythology class will be called "The Real Game of Thrones: From Modern Myths to Medieval Models," and will look at how the popular HBO series and the books it is based on both mirror and differ from actual medieval European history.

Assistant Professor Racha Kirakosian, one of two people teaching the course, told TIME she hopes the course will help recruit more students to the school's medieval studies and humanities courses.
