[NYT] Carrie Nye, known for her dry wit and Mississippi drawl that inevitably attracted comparisons with Tallulah Bankhead, made her Broadway debut in 1960 in “A Second String,” an adaptation of a novel by Colette. Five years later she was nominated for a Tony Award for playing a society lady in the musical “Half a Sixpence.”
This is a (breathtaking) scene from Great Performances — Enemies (1974).

Prince Harry returned to Lesotho, Africa, today on a charity trip, and took the time to learn a little sign language so he could communicate with deaf kids supported by his children’s charity, Sentebale (the name in the local language means “forget me not“).
Harry started with a visit to a school for deaf children, where he performed some dance moves with the kids, and donned a teddy-bear apron to cook traditional sweet bread cakes.
Hell, make him the next Pope. I’m sure there’s a Vatican somewhere in Vegas by the pyramids.
Harry: The World’s Prince. (And stripper.) The spitting image of his late mum, inside and out.
“I used to do that [movies].” –Whoopi Goldberg
During a discussion about a silly tabloid story that reported Jennifer Aniston wanted to do her job correctly and was being called a “diva” for it, Whoopi said something, that to me, was disturbing.
