Joe Francis’s legal woes continue as earlier today The Girls Gone Wild creator was charged with misdemeanous sexual battery for allegedly groping an 18 year old girl.
Already in jail on charges of criminal contempt and indicted for federal tax evasion, the girl is alleging that Francis groped the woman’s T&A repeatedly despite her pleas for him to stop according to city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan.
The alleged incident occurred during a Jan. 10 birthday party at the Geisha House in Hollywood, he said. The victim, whose name wasn’t disclosed, filed a police report and prosecutors filed the sexual battery count Wednesday against the 34-year-old entrepreneur.
Arraignment was set for May 22 at the Hollywood courthouse but Francis isn’t required to appear. If convicted, Francis could be sentenced to six months in jail and fined $2,000, Mateljan said.
If convicted of the tax invasion charges, which Francis has already been ordered to appear in a Reno court on May 22 then not only could he be fined $500,000 but could face 10 years in jail.
Maybe Francis should start considering a new spin off titled – “Prison Bitches Gone Wild” if he wants to keep his $29 million fortune a year going while he’s banged up.

Well that’s what Life & Style are saying:
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are getting serious in their efforts to have a child. The 44-year-old mother of three and her 29-year-old hubby have just returned from a vacation in Valencia, Spain, and the couple is telling friends that they’ve cleared their summer schedules to concentrate on getting Moore pregnant. “Demi’s been seeing fertility specialists who are guiding her through in vitro fertilization,” an “insider” tells the new issue of Life & Style. …
As long as the baby doesn’t turn out to be like Rumer Willis and become one of Lilo’s BFF’s then best of luck to the couple:

TMZ report that it is confirmed that Alec Baldwin has pre-recorded an episode of The View with all the girls that will air this Friday. However conflicting reports exist on how Baldwin’s apology went down with the crowd:
[TMZ's source] recounts that Baldwin “was very heartfelt, apologetic and emotional.” We’re told the audience applauded multiple times as Baldwin discussed the events surrounding the voice mail. On the show, Baldwin indicated he is interested in being released from his “30 Rock” contract. Sources tell TMZ, however, that if NBC does not release him he will fulfill his contractual obligations. We don’t know how long those obligations run.
However another inside source has contacted Perez Hilton with an altogether different version of events:
“I was just an audience member on the View this afternoon for their show that will air Friday. Alec Baldwin made a v. awkward appearance on the show. Rosie came out before the segment to prepare the audience for the “polite applause” we were supposed provide. She was really great, compassionate, funny and said she loved alec and they’d been friends for years but she has been trying to convince him not to do this interview. He seemed really all over the map – asking nbc to release him from his contract with 30 rock, went off about his battle for parental alienation prevention and pulled a little papa simpson talking about how much he loved his daughter and how he wakes her up by getting in bed with her and stroking her hair.
He really had me til he said the last bit but generally I feel for the guy, I think he’s so out of it, lost and upset. Rosie told the audience during a commercial break that he had asked her every day for a week now to be on air to explain himself but she’d advised against it because people at the height of a problem shouldn’t make rash decisions. He had threatened to leave the country and was totally ambivalent about his future in acting. He stuttered non-stop, really all over the map and didn’t look at the audience once even tho there was a quasi-standing ovation when he walked in. Oh, and there’s this weird bit at the end about his mom’s voicemail about pumpkin seeds that translate to life that made him cry. Stay tuned on Friday!!!! “
As for which account is the true version, we’ll just have to wait until Friday. As always if you have any hot tips or gossip – remember sharing is caring and you will be credited.

Kiki can pray, beg, laugh it off or anything else she likes
but I am not ready to forgive her for wearing her mother’s slip, her dad’s jumper and her grandmother’s wooly tights in sunny Madrid
so instead I’m going to distract myself by looking at the hotness that is James Franco instead.
