Cleveland Kidnap Victims Address the Public for the First Time Since Their Release
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight — who were (allegedly) held captive in the home of Ariel Castro, during which time the women were raped (resulting in the birth of one child, who was also held captive) — have made their first public address, basically to say thank you to the public. The Cleveland Courage Fund, which has raised over a $1 million, has helped the women transition back into civilian life, and they look relatively happy and healthy in the videos.
As Knight says, “I may have been through hell and back, but I am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face and my head held high and my feet on the ground. I will not let the situation define who I am.”
Good for her, and here’s to a hopefully successful — and private — transition toward a better, happier future.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
