She really does seem ageless but if you count the years, today the great Tina Turner is celebrating her 83rd birthday.
Tina has had several health setbacks in recent years including a stroke and suffered the loss of a son in 2018. But after completing a new autobiography she showed in interviews that she is one helluva survivor. In the fall of 2018, a musical based on her life opened on Broadway.
She came back from years of domestic violence at the hands of ex-husband and ex-singing partner Ike Turner with whom she had such hits as A Fool in Love, River Deep – Mountain High, Proud Mary and Nutbush City Limits.
On her own she’s been a far bigger star with so many hits including Simply the Best, Let’s Stay Together, We Don’t Need Another Hero , Better Be Good to Me, Private Dancer, I Don’t Wanna Fight, Typical Male and What You Get Is What You See.
Trevor Donovan portrayed a gay high schooler on 90210 and has a history of being an LGBTQ ally.
But the Dancing With the Stars semifinalist has a deal to star in projects for the Great American Family network, the same network creative director Candace Cameron Bure said intends to “keep traditional marriage at the core.”
“I feel people should be and believe what they want, as long as they are kind and accepting of others. For those of you who have followed me since 90210, you know my heart and character. No matter who you love, no matter what your race or religion is, you matter. Through mutual respect and acceptance, coexistence is possible. Based on the few months I have known Candace, I have found her to be kind, and passionate about her faith.”
“It has always been my goal to create films that bring people together without being overtly political or religious, and I will continue to do so,” added Donovan. “And sometimes, in future rom-coms, I’ll play the naive country boy who finds love in the big city or saves his family’s farm. Stay tuned!”
This was really something. Lea Michele and the Fall 2022 cast of Broadway’s Funny Girl performed Don’t Rain on My Parade to kick off the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC yesterday. I can see why they recorded a cast album!
He was the son of a president, a magazine publisher and once named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”
He is, of course, the late John F. Kennedy Jr., who like his father died far too soon. Today would have been his 62nd birthday.
It’s been more than 20 years since he died in a plane crash at the age of 39, just four years after he founded George, a glossy politics-as-lifestyle monthly which sometimes took editorial aim even at members of his own family.
JFK Jr. was a graduate of Brown University and New York University School of Law and famously failed the bar exam twice before finally passing. He then worked as a prosecutor in the Manhattan district attorney’s office for four years.
He was quite the ladies man dating Sarah Jessica Parker, Madonna and Darryl Hannah before marrying Carolyn Bessette in 1996. She was among those killed when the plane he was flying crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off Martha’s Vinyard.
We’ll never know what could have been in store for him.
Thanksgiving can make time with family… interesting, to say the least. Check out the best family moments featuring Will (Eric McCormack), Grace (Debra Messing), Jack (Sean Hayes), Karen (Megan Mullally) and more.
Maxwell Caulfield, a guy who so many of us had mad crushes on in the 80s when he starred in Grease 2 and the Dynasty spinoff The Colbys, turns 63 today.
I was in college living in a dorm when The Colbys had its 1985-87 run and since I was a big closet case, I had no one to turn to and say, “Isn’t Miles Colby HOT?”
But now I have all of you. Miles Colby was HOT and Maxwell Caulfield remains a very sexy man. I met him in 2013 on a red carpet at a theater opening and did not realize that in real life, he has a British accent!
He was with wife Juliet Mills who he has been married to since 1980 and could not have been more gracious.
Maxwell has been working steadily in television series (Emmerdale, Casualty, Strip Mall), films (Gettysburg, The Real Blonde, The Supernaturals), and stage (Chicago, Cactus Flower, Salonika) throughout the decades.
Thanks for the memories Maxwell – and here’s to many more!
If you’re a politician or media figure who sets up the LGBTQ community to be hated and feared – not because any of us ever harmed you but because you find it useful – then don’t you dare act surprised when this kind of violence follows.
Jim Parsons talks with Seth Meyers about meeting his husband on a blind date and playing the real-life role of Michael Ausiello in his film Spoiler Alert, then shows off his best Dublin accent for his character in the play A Man of No Importance.
This is an outstanding interview. How wonderful to have Jeremy Pope in his first leading role in a featured film and to be so open about being a queer man in Hollywood. I’m a tremendous fan of the actor and of the man.
