But reporter Brian Stelter, who has written a book about morning talk-TV, sheds surprising new light on Curry’s final months on the show. After reading the report, one must wonder, did Ann work for high-ranking executives at a legitimate broadcasting company or for teens at a high-school-run cable access program?
The “char-lady,” Mrs. Wiggins, Eunice Harper Higgins…
Carol Burnett’s classic characters from her old CBS TV show retain their timeless comic spark despite the passing of the decades. This month the comedian turns—God bless us all—80 years old. She doesn’t look it. And I bet she still has the vocal prowess to execute her famous Tarzan yell.
This afternoon Burnett is to be feted when the intersection of Highland and Selma avenues in Hollywood is christened Carol Burnett Square. It’s right next to her alma mater, Hollywood High. According to playbill.com, the honoree is scheduled to attend the festivities.
Martin Richard is the littlest victim of the Boston Marathon bombings, a somber President Obama referred to him as he addressed the nation on Tuesday.
President Obama said, “We know two explosions gravely wounded dozens of Americans and took the lives of others, including an eight-year-old boy.”
Martin Richard was from Dorchester, Massachusetts; he was delighted to be at the race enjoying the sights and sounds of his family.
Instead, Martin was killed. His seven-year-old sister, Jane, lost a leg and his mom, Denise, suffered a severe head injury, reports Inside Edition.
The televised talent showcase Britain’s Got Talent is taking some heat for this weekend’s episode, Deadline reports.
On Saturday’s show, a 40-plus woman gave judge Simon Cowell a lap dance, and an 11-year-old girl sang “One Night Only” from Dreamgirls—which features lyrics describing a one-night stand. The complaints from Mediawatch UK stem from the fact that the show was aired during family viewing time (i.e., before 9pm). The network ITV insists that the show was “carefully edited to ensure it was suitably inexplicit.”
The Glee episode (“Shooting Star”) which aired Thursday night is being called “insensitive” by some. The critics of the episode say it aired “too soon” after the Newtown, Connecticut Sandy Hook school massacre.
I like Patricia. I like that she’s older, non-traditional and has an identifiable point-of-view. She’s true to her culture. There’s no question she’s a great textile artist. I even like her ululating. Yoo-loo-loo-loo! And she is genuinely warm, kind and supportive of her competitors.
But, repeatedly, Patricia has used her allotted minutes to make a strange and beautiful fabric, and then hasn’t enough time to complete a fully-realized garment. How has she survived this many weeks? And last week, how in the name of fashion justice did Patricia’s outfit win over Michelle from Portland’s beautiful, effortless look? It’s true that Michelle defied Nina’s “no-pants, no-tee-shirt” directive, but she did it so well! Even so, Michelle lost, to be left behind in the smoky ash heap of forgotten reality stars.
This week we start on the precipice of last-week’s cliffhanger. What did Heidi Klum mean when she said Michelle will have “a Do-or-Die moment?” Come on, Heidi, you know the rules: “In fashion, one day you’re in, the next day you’re out!” What day is it??!! Has judgment day come, and the four chosen ones will float on high to the heavenly bliss of Fashion Week?
