WATCH: A shaggy-haired Andrew Neighbors shares sweet story of how a five-year romance began

I have exes who speak well of and still have fond memories of and a few who, well, the less said the better. Andrew Neighbors shares such a sweet memory of how he met and fell in love with a guy in college who he went on to have a five-year relationship with. Geography caused them to go their separate ways but it sure sounded lovely while it lasted.

Friday Morning Man: John Wesley Shipp!

Today is John Wesley Shipp’s 66th birthday!

He portrays Barry Allen’s father, Henry Allen, Jay Garrick/Flash and Earth-90 Barry Allen/Flash on the current The Flash series on The CW network.

He is still such a handsome guy but the younger John was really something to behold! I went to his Facebook page and snagged some picks from his days as a soap star on Guiding Light, Santa Barbara and As the World Turns (he won two Daytime Emmys) and time as The Flash on CBS and, of course, as Dawson’s hot dad on Dawson’s Creek.

John surfaced on ABC’s One Life to Live in its final years as villain Eddie Ford, played Kathy Griffin’s ex-husband in an episode of Drop Dead Diva and also appeared in several episodes of Teen Wolf.

Pete Buttigieg talks to Jimmy Fallon about possibly becoming first openly gay cabinet member

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg guested on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night and talked about attending President Joe Biden’s inauguration, the new administration’s plans and his historic nomination as secretary of transportation.

He recalled being in high school and watching one of then-President Bill Clinton’s nominees for an ambassador derailed because he was gay.

“It sent a message that only might gay people be denied a chance to serve but also a chance to belong,” Buttigieg told Fallon. “The fact that 20 years later I’ll go before a (Senate) committee and hopefully receive a vote to become a confirmed cabinet member, I just hope that send a different, better, opposite message to some kid who’s watching now.”

Thursday Morning Man: Robby Benson!

The absolute cutest teen idol from the 70s and early 80s was Robby Benson!

Today is his 65th birthday and as you can see, he’s still quite a dreamboat – and a grandfather of two!

Ice Castles, Ode to Billy Joe, One on One, The Death of Richie and Harry and Son are the movies I remember most and they left quite an impression.

Robby was not only adorable with blue eyes to die for, but he was such a fine actor with a lot of heart and soul.

It’s not like has ever stopped working since the peak of his popularity as an actor. He’s a versatile talent who writes songs, does voice acting (he was the Beast in Beauty and the Beast and in several sequels) and directs movies (Billy: The Early Years, Modern Love) and television (Ellen, Friends, 8 Simple Rules). And he’s still acting including a recurring role in the NBC series American Dreams, a role in the 2011 TV movie Brave New World and in more recent years appeared in the Hallmark movie A Feeling of Home and in the film Apple Seed.

Robby also wrote We Are Not Alone, the song that plays during the key dancing-in-the-library scene in The Breakfast Club. The woman who sang that track, Karla DeVito, happens to be Benson’s wife. They have two children. He has also taught film and theater at several universities including NYU and Indiana University.

Robby was born with a heart defect, necessitating four open heart surgeries. He is an activist and fundraiser for heart research, and wrote the book, lyrics, and music for a play called Open Heart, starring Benson, which opened and closed off-Broadway in 2004. He also wrote the medical memoir, I’m Not Dead… Yet! which was released in June 2012.
