Kevin Hart visits 'The Late Show with David Letterman' in NYC

Despite being a big draw at the box office for Sony Pictures, actor/comedian Kevin Hart is not well liked in the executive board room.

Sony was a victim of an extensive cyber hacking that exposed thousands of private emails, unreleased movies and other toxic data online.

In a series of leaked emails, two Sony execs discuss their disdain for the pint-sized comedian who had the nerve to ask for more cash -- on top of the $3 million he was already paid -- to promote one of his movies on his official Twitter.com account.

From Gawker.com:

The email exchange below, between Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal, studio exec Clint Culpepper, and Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton, pertains to squeaky Mr. Hart, whose fame has continued to expand with recent Sony Pictures films. The studio was hoping Hart would be so kind as to write a 140-characters-or-less statement or three about his new movie (possibly Think Like a Man Too), as is normal when an actor with hands is promoting a new movie. But as you can see in the below message, Kevin wanted more money to go social.

Culpepper added more gripes about Hart in this email massage:

It's not as if we paid him 3M and 4M respectively for his last 2 films thinking he might be nominated. We paid for his ability to open a film which included his social media savvy. I feel like this is something that should be negotiated going into the film as opposed to after the fact. It feels tantamount to buying a car and then upon picking it up being told that the engine will cost extra. I'm tempted to suggest we call his bluff. If he doesn't do his normal routine, his film will not open as well and his brand will appear diminished and he will- in fact - be fucking himself because we have his next 2 immediate films. And then there's the social media precedent we're setting...especially in light of the fact that Channing is at the same agency.

      But this he saud about Obama:

      Would he like to finance some movies,” responded Rudin.

      “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?” said Pascal, with Rudin replying “12 YEARS.”

      “Or the butler. Or think like a man?” continued Pascal, who is a major donor for the Democratic party and President Obama.

      “Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart,” said Rudin.

      Warning to not share medicine AND to try natural alternatives;

      A young mother is in intensive care after having a rare but serious reaction to a friend's prescription antibiotics that caused her to "burn" from the inside out.

      Woman 'Burns' From Inside Out After Reaction to Friend's Meds
      Laura Corona/KABC
      Yassmeen Castanada, 19, wasn't feeling well on Thanksgiving, so she took a pill that her friend had left over from a previous illness. Soon, Castanada's eyes, nose and throat began to burn, and she was rushed to the emergency room, her mother, Laura Corona, told ABC News.

      Her body erupted in blisters over the next few days, Corona said. She had to be sedated and placed on a ventilator.

      "Her face changed within four days," Corona told ABC News. "I would wipe her face and all the skin was just falling off."

      Doctors diagnosed Castanada with Stevens-Johnson syndrome, a rare but serious drug reaction that can occur even when drugs are taken as prescribed by a doctor, said Dr. Joshua Zeichner, a dermatology professor at the Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan who was not involved in treating Castanada.

      "You're not truly burned, but what happens is you have compromised the skin barrier function," Zeichner said.

      Laura Corona/KABC
      PHOTO: Yaasmeen Castanada has been hospitalized for three weeks as a result of a rare reaction called Stevens-Johnson syndrome.
      Inflammation and blistering occur on the outer layer of skin as well as the lips, eyes and genitals, leaving the patient vulnerable to infection and unable to properly balance electrolytes and stay hydrated, Zeichner explained. As such, these patients are treated like burn victims.

      "You get very painful lesions on your skin that are basically blisters," said Neil MacKinnon, dean of the University of Cincinnati's Winkle College of Pharmacy. "Your whole body is in excruciating pain."

      Castanada was eventually transferred to the University of California Irvine's burn unit, where doctors said over 70 percent of her body was damaged, Corona said. She's undergone several surgeries over the past few weeks, but her feet are still blistering.

      Zeichner said he sees it most often with antibiotics, but MacKinnon said this sometimes fatal reaction is different from most reactions to antibiotics, which are usually limited to gastrointestinal symptoms.

      "Unfortunately, we have no way of predicting who would have this type reaction," Zeichner said, advising that patients only take prescriptions given to them by their doctors. He said they should report any reactions following new medicines immediately to their doctors. And, if necessary, go to the emergency room.

      Laura Corona/KABC
      PHOTO: Yaasmeen Castanada is in intensive care after having a severe allergic reaction to a mediation that caused her body to burn from the inside out.
      Though Castanada is expected to miss her baby's first Christmas, Corona said she has hope her daughter will survive. Another patient with Stevens-Johnson syndrome spent two months in the same hospital and went home on Tuesday.

      "Heartbreaking, just unreal," Corona told ABC's southern California station KABC. "Just watching your daughter burn in front of you, literally burn in front of you."

      A woman in Bradenton, Florida, is facing assault charges after allegedly attacking her twin sister during an argument about a sex toy and the sister's boyfriend.

      Heidi Creamer, 48, was arrested Sunday afternoon for domestic battery after she allegedly punched, scratched and pulled the hair of her sister, Holly Ryan, while arguing about both Ryan's boyfriend and a vibrator, Bradenton.com reports.

      After a few moments, Creamer stopped the alleged assault and began grabbing her personal belongings and placing them outside the front door. While she was doing that, Ryan locked Creamer outside, went to the balcony and screamed to neighbors to call the police.

      When a deputy arrived, he said Ryan was on the apartment balcony with blood on her face, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

      Heidi Creamer was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser. She began screaming that "she was fighting with her sister over a vibrator and her boyfriend," according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.
