Cheyenne Jackson opens up about getting sober: “It got out of hand. My life became unmanageable”

In the January issue of Attitude Magazine, singer-actor Cheyenne Jackson talks his one-time journey towards the darker side of the entertainment industry has been swapped for a very different role: fatherhood.

Cheyenne, 43, celebrated five years of sobriety this year. He reveals how the intoxicating showbiz party scene began to take its toll on his life:

“You were at a party and there would just be a pile of coke there. It got out of hand. My life became unmanageable. There was no ‘rock bottom.’ I didn’t have a ‘thing’ where I lost my job. I was never drunk at work. It was simply getting too much. I couldn’t even go out to dinner, or have a moment with friends, where I wasn’t thinking about drinking, and the drinking always led to ‘Let’s get some coke.’ It was an unhealthy pattern and I’d seen too many friends fall deeper and deeper, losing everything. I wasn’t going to let myself do that. I didn’t go to rehab, I just started going to meetings and got my shit together.”

Today’s Holiday Tune: Helen Reddy’s lovely rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”

If you don’t have Helen Reddy’s holiday CD you might want to consider adding it to your collection because her voice is so well-suited to so many of our favorite Christmas songs.

I’m not sure what year this performance of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is from but it sure is pretty. My guess is it’s from the late 1990s when Miss Reddy was starring on Broadway and on the London stage in Blood Brothers.

She took a 10 year break from performing but returned a few years ago with a voice that had not diminished a single bit.

TBT: Matt Bomer remembers Daytime Emmys: “I’m still grateful to whoever let me borrow these clothes”

View this post on Instagram

#TBT It was the DAYTIME EMMYS YA’ll!! And there I was reppin’ hard with the incredible @dogtroit #aubreydollar on behalf #guidinglight, and Ben and Marina, aka ‘Barina’ to our 79 fans worldwide. This s#%t was SERIOUS. You too can achieve this look with 1/8-1/4 inch of Ben Nye pancake makeup and some one skilled enough with a flat iron to give you a vague, pseudo Ashton Kutcher circa ‘01 ‘do, along with a tuxedo approximately 1 size too big. On a serious note I had an incredible time and I love and miss that whole crew. And I’m still grateful to whoever let me borrow these clothes and probably groomed me for free. #soaps #barina #benreade #daytimeemmys

Ronan Farrow profiled in GQ: “I keep my head down, and I do the work, and it’s pretty hard work”

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Ronan Farrow is such a rock star.

He is profiled in the latest issue of GQ and I’ve pulled out an excerpt for you:

To some, he is an avenging angel, a real-life superhero. “[D]o we women have a bat signal for Ronan Farrow[?]” one admirer recently asked on Twitter. (“Basically yes,” Farrow tweeted back, and gave out his New Yorker e-mail address.) Farrow’s travel is now watched, and the mere prospect of him doing a story can move markets. “There’s the very peculiar dynamic of doing sort of business-related or Wall Street reporting,” he complains, “and a tweet about a rumor of you doing a story on a company literally knocks half a billion dollars off the company’s stock value”—indeed, speculation around Farrow’s reporting caused a CBS stock plummet that was ultimately worth more than a billion dollars before the story even hit the web.

But it’s not the prospect of harming a major corporation’s bottom line that bothers Farrow. It’s the prospect of not doing right by his sources. “I keep my head down, and I do the work, and it’s pretty hard work,” Farrow says, “but harder for the sources I’m working with than it is for me. And anytime one of those sources feels that I’m a person that they can trust and come to if they have a significant story, and anytime someone knows that I will work carefully and meticulously to interrogate those claims but also create a space where they feel safe in coming forward with them, those are things I’m deeply grateful for. That’s what’s made this run of reporting possible.”

Cher is writing a memoir!

Cher is known for being honest and fairly candid. So it’s exciting news that she is working on her memoirs.

She broke the news herself this week on Twitter: “Writing Life Story. Book Due Out First Part Of 2020. Bio Pic To Follow”

At 73, this is a good time for the icon to reflect on an epic life that includes being a 1960s pop star (I Got You Babe, Bang Bang, The Beat Goes On), a 1970s television star (Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour, The Cher Show), a 1980s Oscar-winning actress (Moonstruck, Mask, Silkwood) and the past 30 years as a top-selling recording artist (Believe, If I Could Turn Back Time, I Found Someone) and live performer whose tours sell out around the world.

This is a particularly busy period for Cher who has been known to spend several years at a time out of the limelight only to come back bigger than ever.

She was a Kennedy Center honoree a few weeks ago, the Broadway musical about her life story recently opened, and her fall album of ABBA sings debuted at number 3 on the Billboard charts. She also had a well-received role in the summer film Mamma Mia 2.


Happy 93rd birthday to the great Dick Van Dyke!

Dick Van Dyke, currently back on the big screen in Mary Poppins Returns, is turning 93 today!

He’s best known for his self-titled classic 1960s television sitcom and the long-running drama Diagnosis Murder but the entertainment legend is also an impressive song and dance man who has starred in the big screen musicals Bye Bye Birdie, Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

This seems like a perfect time to enjoy some musical moments from the versatile Van Dyke.

Today’s Holiday Tune: Judy Garland singing a gorgeous “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”

The great Judy Garland introduced Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas in this scene from the 1944 MGM musical Meet Me in St. Louis.

Miss Garland sings the song to Margaret O’Brien who plays her little sister in this scene from the classic film.

It’s all just so gorgeous.

Thursday Morning Man: Christopher Russell!

I was not aware of Christopher Russell until writer Gary Goldstein posted the trailer for the film Mr. 365 on Facebook the other day. Gary wrote the film and Christopher stars.

What a dreamboat.

The actor has had recurring roles on the TV shows Van Helsing and UnREAL and his character on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency had a gay romance.

I looked over his long list of TV and movie credits and loved this 2004 listing for a guest role in the series Kevin Hill: handsome actor. He’s also guested on Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Star Trek: Discovery, Good Witch, Reign, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Flashpoint, and Supernatural, among many others.

Today’s Holiday Tunes: Cher with & without Sonny

Cher is all the rage right now – just the way I like it.

The 2018 Kennedy Center honoree has never made a holiday album that I know of and since she rarely makes new albums, I doubt she ever will.

So all we have are a few numbers from her 1970s reign as a top TV variety show star with husband – then ex-husband – Sonny Bono.

The bottom video is from their post-divorce variety series on CBS and two of the videos feature their adorable child Chastity Bono who is now a man named Chaz Bono.
