Showtune Sunday: Celebrating the great Ethel Merman’s final Broadway triumph in “Hello, Dolly!”

The late, great Ethel Merman was born on this day in 1908.

Her long list of Broadway triumphs span four decades and included Gypsy, Anything Goes, Call Me Madam, Annie Get Your Gun, Girl Crazy, Red, Hot, and Blue, and Happy Hunting, among many others.

Her final triumph on Broadway in a book musical was the nine months in 1970 she spent playing the title role in Hello, Dolly! She did 210 performances in the show and won the Drama Desk Award for best actress. The role was written specifically for Merman after her triumph in Gypsy but she turned it down to focus on movies and television. So Carol Channing got the part of a lifetime which made her a Broadway legend. When the show was about to end its six-years run (Pearl Bailey, Ginger Rogers, Martha Raye and others had stretches in the role after Channing left), Merman finally took the role on to rave reviews.

So today, I share with you some music and clips from that last star turn on Broadway for the great star who died in 1984 at the age of 76.

Embattled tennis star Novak Djokovic has left Australia after a court ruling to deport him

Novak Djokovic has been deported from Down Under.

Refusing to get vaccinated has resulted in the Serbian star not being able to defend his Australian Open title and possibly not being allowed to return to the country for three years.

A court on Sunday unanimously dismissed the No. 1-ranked tennis player’s challenge of a government minister’s decision to cancel his visa.

“I am extremely disappointed with the Court ruling to dismiss my application for judicial review of the Minister’s decision to cancel my visa, which means I cannot stay in Australia and participate in the Australian Open,” Djokovic said in a statement. “I respect the Court’s ruling and I will cooperate with the relevant authorities in relation to my departure from the country.”

A masked Djokovic was photographed in a Melbourne airport lounge with two government officials in black uniforms. He left at approximately 11 p.m. local time on an Emirates flight to Dubai, the same United Arab Emirates city he flew to Australia from.

If either Daniil Medvedev or Alexander Zverev win the tournament, Djokovic will also lose the number one ranking in men’s tennis.

Tennis icon Chris Evert opens up about her stage 1C ovarian cancer diagnosis – will undergo chemotherapy

Tennis legend Chris Evert has gone public about being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She has undergone surgery which will be followed by chemotherapy treatment.

Chrissie, a three-time Wimbledon champion and winner of 15 other grand slam singles titles, is now a tennis commentator for ESPN. She is my all-time favorite female player and is one of the biggest stars the game has ever had.

She shared her story with colleague Chris McKendry.

“As someone who has always had control over my life, I have no idea how I’ll respond to chemotherapy,” she says. “I have to give in to something higher.”

Today’s Morning Man: Patrick Dempsey!

Patrick Dempsey turns 56 today and it’s nice too shine a spotlight on this dreamy actor who is aging magnificently.

He reprised his role as neurosurgeon Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd in Grey’s Anatomy in a dream sequence last season. He had left the show after its 12th season in 2015 with his character being killed off.

Since leaving the show, he has starred in the TV series Devils, the miniseries The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, and the feature film Bridget Jones’s Baby.

Dempsey had early success as an actor, starring in a number of films in the 1980s, including Can’t Buy Me Love (1987) and Loverboy (1989). In the 1990s, he mostly appeared in smaller roles in film, such as Outbreak (1995) and television. Dempsey was in Scream 3 where he played the role of Detective Mark Kincaid and landed a lead role in Sweet Home Alabama (2002), a surprise box office hit. He has since starred in other films, including Enchanted (2007), Made of Honor (2008), Valentine’s Day (2010), Flypaper (2011), Freedom Writers (2007), and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2012).

Throwback Thursday: When Betty White first appeared on TV screens as Catherine Piper on ABC’s “The Practice”

She may be best known as Rose, Sue Ann and Elka, but Betty White had another very memorable TV role: Catherine Piper who we met on ABC’s The Practice then for many episodes of the Boston Legal spinoff. These scenes from The Practice are when we first meet Catherine, Alan’s (James Spader) neighbor as a child. When Alan was nine, he put a bag of burning dog feces on her doorstep. She hadn’t forgotten Alan and all these years later she shook his hand with dog excrement in it. She served as a witness in a case, extorting from the defendant’s mother in exchange for withholding testimony, and Alan made her out to be a bitter, demented old widow.
