Monday Memories: Andy Gibb & Irene Cara duet on “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart” on “Solid Gold”

I’m still sad about Irene Cara passing away over the Thanksgiving holiday. This video popped up earlier today from 1982 – a few years post Fame and the year before Flashdance. The show was Solid Gold which was hosted by Andy Gibb for awhile.

Showtune Sunday: All About Irene Cara…

So sad about the passing of Irene Cara who was just 63.

She’s best-known, of course, for the massive hits Fame and Flashdance… What a Feeling as well as several other hits. My favorite of all is the beautiful ballad Out Here on My Own from Fame.

Cara won a Grammy for Pop Vocal Performance and an Oscar for co-writing Flashdance. The success of that song was bittersweet because she had to sue for decent royalties and felt that that got her blackballed in show business. Such a pity because she was such a talented singer and actress who was in Roots: The Next Generation and was a regular on The Electric Company and the daytime soap Love of Life. Her movie roles included Sparkle, City Heat, DC Cab, Certain Fury, Killing ‘em Softly, and Sister, Sister.

Cara appeared in on- and off-Broadway theatrical shows including the musicals Ain’t Misbehavin’, The Me Nobody Knows (which won an Obie Award), Maggie Flynn opposite Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy, and Via Galactica with Raúl Juliá.

She will never be forgotten!

Wishing a happy 83rd birthday to Tina Turner!

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.

Happy birthday to a legend!

Trevor Donovan on working with Great American Family network after Candace Cameron Bure controversy

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.”

Here’s what he had to say to Variety about it:

“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!”

Morning Man Classic: John F. Kennedy Jr.

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.

Throwback Thursday: When Brad Pitt guest-starred in classic Thanksgiving episode of “Friends”

Brad Pitt received a well-deserved guest actor Emmy nomination for his performance in this classic episode of Friends.

He plays a high school classmate of Ross, Rachel and Monica who may look like the sexiest man alive but used to weigh 150 pounds more and still hates Rachel for being mean to him in high school.

Rachel (played by, of course, Jennifer Aniston) walks in and Pitt says: “My two biggest enemies: Rachel Green and carbohydrates.”
