Dusty Springfield was born 85 years ago today – let’s celebrate by enjoying some of her classic songs

For more than a few decades now, I go through a Dusty Springfield phase where I start playing Dusty in Memphis again … and again … and again.

I just love this amazingly talented woman who left us far too soon – in 1999 just shy of her 60th birthday.

Born 85 years ago today, Dusty left behind a beautiful body of work.

I especially love her big hair TV appearances in the 60s and have several of them here for you to enjoy.

Today’s Morning Man: Sean Maher!

happy 49th birthday to the stunning actor Sean Maher!

When I met Sean at the Los Angeles LGBT Center gala in November 2011, he was such a sweet guy and still seemed so moved by all the love that had come his way since coming out earlier that year.

‘I am still hearing from people who were inspired by my story and came out to their parents,’ he told me. ‘I’ve also been getting some old-fashioned fan mail from people that brought me to tears – their stories so inspire me.’

‘It was 14 years that I sort of had this layer of fear on me so it does feel different to kind to kind of shed all of this past baggage,’ he also said. ‘This part of my life that was so huge that I didn’t feel comfortable enough to share for fear of my career being destroyed.’

Maher and his partner, Paul, have been together for more than a decade and are raising two children. He is so committed to his family that he took two years off from acting to be a full-time dad.

His career was launched in a big way in 1999 when he was cast in the title role of the FOX series Ryan Caulfield: Year One. He followed that up with a recurring role on Party of Five and was a cast member of the short-lived series The $treet.

Since returning to full-time acting in 2009, Maher has done guest spots on such shows as Arrow, The Mentalist, Looking, 9-1-1, The Rookie, Human Target and Drop Dead Diva, was a regular on the ABC Family series Make it or Break It and on the short-lived NBC drama Playboy Club in which he played a closeted gay man.

He is best known to many fans for his role as Dr. Simon Tam on Firefly.

He also starred in the independent film version of Much Ado About Nothing and is the voice of Dick Grayson / Nightwing in series of animated Batman and Justice League films.

My tribute to beloved television icon Elizabeth Montgomery who was born 91 years ago today

One of my all-time favorite stars was Elizabeth Montgomery who was born 91 years ago today.

Such a beauty and great talent.

Of course I grew up watching Bewitched which ran for eight seasons on ABC and loved her as Samantha (and sometimes as Serena) and her interactions with mother Endora, nosy neighbor Mrs. Kravitz, daffy Aunt Clara, nervous Esmeralda, naughty Uncle Arthur, Doctor Bombay and Darrins one and two.

(I purposely didn’t mention that soulless weasel Larry Tate because I could not stand him!)

After the show ended, Miss Montgomery never attempted another TV series. Instead, she became a TV movie queen of high quality and over two decades starred in 22 of them – a wide range of roles. They included The Legend of Lizzie Borden, Dark Victory, Mrs. Sundance, A Case of Rape, Belle Starr, Amos, Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story and her final two movies in which she played journalist Edna Buchanan in The Corpse Had a Familiar Face and Deadline For Murder.

She earned an Emmy nomination for her performance in the 1978 miniseries The Awakening Land (as well as for Lizzie Borden and Case of Rape) and six more Emmy nods for Bewitched but sadly never won.

What made me love her even more was her very public support of her former co-star Dick Sargent after he came out publicly as a gay man in the early 1990s.

She even rode with him in the West Hollywood Gay Pride Parade and when asked why, she answered: “For the love of Dick.”

Sadly, she was just 62 when she died in 1995 from cancer. She and her partner of 20 years Robert Foxworth finally married two years before her death. She had three children with third husband William Asher who produced Bewitched and she also had a five-year marriage to Oscar winner Gig Young.

She most certainly has never been forgotten and I would love to see her TV movies available for rental or purchase.

See WWHL guest Michaela Jaé Rodriguez review some of her past red carpet ensembles

Loot star Michaela Jaé Rodriguez looks back on some of her past outfits and says whether she’s still into them or not during “Loot or Give It the Boot.” Michaela gives a “loot” to the Thom Browne gown she wore to the Met Gala, she still loves the structural outfit she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar party, she gives a “loot” to the silver dress she wore to the Clooney Foundation event and says she felt like a flower at the Independent Spirit Awards in her pink mini dress.


Self-described “baby gay” Jerrod Carmichael gives a damn about everything Beyoncé does

Jerrod Carmichael played a round of “Does! Jerrod! Give a Damn!?” a few nights ago on WWHL and tells Andy Cohen which pop culture topics have his attention. He says he gives a damn about everything Beyoncé does, including her new album Cowboy Carter, and he’s ready for the new chapter of JoJo Siwa after her Kiss-inspired look at the iHeartRadio Awards. On the other hand, he doesn’t care about the upcoming Matrix 5 or the upcoming season of Bridgerton.
