SORRY CHARLIE: YOU CAN’T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT, TOOPosted by YaVaughnie Wilkins on Jun 13, 2012 in Featured, Misc | 1 comment
Since January 2010, I have lived in Southern California, diligently working on my feature length documentary, The Glamorous Lie, and memoir of the same title. Additionally, I have proudly brought to market, several products that I have invented since 2006. Moreover, in the pipeline is a 3-part series of children’s books, a completed non-fiction thriller, AUGUST, and three more inventions. My life, since 2010, has been full of rewarding endeavors and rich with endless opportunities. (www.YaVaWi.com)
However, for at least the past two and half years, Charles E. Phillips, Jr. (CEP) has been stalking me and harassing my family, friends, business colleagues and general acquaintances in an effort to intimidate me into “silence”. Going so far as to having his Gibson Dunn lawyers: Orin Snyder, Debra Yang and Lisa Bloom, tell my lawyer, Marty Singer, that if I did not accept a seven-figure bribe and terms to keep “quiet”, CEP would file an extortion charge and release “a lot of dirt” on me. After balking at that order, I rejected the bribe, and have been waiting since January 26, 2012 for said claim, as I move forward with plans to release my documentary and books.
One might assume that CEP is far too busy to engage in such an expensive investigation and harassment of me, given our relationship ended almost three years ago. In fact, had I not filmed, recorded and documented all of this harassment, no one would believe Infor’s CEO would waste his intellect, let alone his resources, monitoring the movements of an ex-girlfriend when he has a “wife” and son to tend to. And let’s not forget all the time he spends on his charities which he uses to further boost his public facade.
A question one might ask is, “Why would CEP do this?” Why would he hire Oracle Corporation’s investigators, Kroll as well as Palladino & Sutherland, to “dig up as much dirt” on me, my family and friends as is possible? The only plausible excuse for this psychosis is that it is an effort to counter any information I might one day spill about his true character, which goes far beyond his infidelities: And is far less stellar than the pillar of society some have come to believe. Ironically, I was prepared to never speak of the details of his true nature, until I was forced to endure this relentless 30 month stalking at his hand. What CEP did not intend was that I have written a memoir, The Glamorous Lie, which details all the “dirt” he was planning to use to buy my silence.
Yes, he and his squad of goons underestimated my tenacity and resilience. Tisk, tisk.
This, and the self-imposed embarrassment he would cause himself are the likely reasons he has not filed that “extortion” claim against me.
If that was not enough, I learned in July 2011 that the director (Mark Alamares a.k.a. Mark Zhen) of The Glamorous Lie, had “absconded” with my film footage, which is now miraculously in the hands of CEP. Given Alamares’ known financial struggles, I have a strong belief that CEP is paying Alamares’ legal fees (at the highly expensive firm of Caldwell Leslie) in my lawsuit against him. (CASE NO. BC 479820; Assigned to Hon. Barbara Scheper; Dept. 30; Superior Court of CA; Los Angeles County).
Given CEPs involvement in stalking me and monitoring my businesses, both in person and in “cyberspace”, for the past two and half years, I hope to prove in court that my film was stolen and ultimately sold without my permission to CEP. He is therefore, a key witness in my suit against Alamares. That said, CEP is making a host of excuses why he is delaying his eventual deposition in said case. The main reason his lawyers cite is, “YaVaughnie intends to use the videotaped deposition and transcript to sell and promote her film and book,” The Glamorous Lie.
Sorry Charlie: You don’t get to have your cake and eat it, too. It is within my legal right to videotape your deposition.
CEP would not be in this position, but for his own continued undoing. Let’s review: a.) a self-righteous, entitled and purely arrogant CEP and his legal team has spent upwards of $2 million on surveillance and harassment of me for more than two and half years; b.) CEP’s engagement in an unprovoked door-to-door smear campaign of me, from the East Coast to the West Coast; c.) the ultimate purchase of my film footage from someone I intend to prove has stolen it from me; d) offering to pay the legal fees of said adversary.
All this adds up to one thing: CEP cannot cry foul when I demand a videotaped deposition. As a side note, it never occurred to me to use THAT videotape to sell and promote The Glamorous Lie, as I have plenty other video that would be more compelling and interesting than his contrived deposition.
The old saying, “You reap what you sow,” is all too fitting a statement for Phillips and his efforts at taking a bat to the beehive.
