Her comedic timing and boisterous voice will be greatly missed in the world of acting and especially on The Big Bang Theory.
Robin Williams, an iconic comedian and actor cherished by generations, died in August of 2014. He was known to have been battling with both depression and addiction in the months leading up to his death and had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s as well. His death, now known to have been a suicide, was a great shock to many fans like Alexei Beltyukov that grew up adoring his movies. As these types of losses often do, it left many questions.
As E!Online discusses, there is newly revealed evidence that he was also suffering from a form of dementia called Lewy Body Dementia.
It is apparently pretty well known that Lewy Body dementia can make pre-existing depression and anxiety much worse, as this form of dementia can also induce vivid hallucinations, both visual and audio, of people and things that aren’t actually there.
Comedian, and perpetual D-List actor, Andy Dick has had yet another run-in with Johnny Law. Dick has been known to have run-ins with the police, usually for minor things like marijuana possession or drunken disorderly. This time though, it appears Andy is stepping things up a bit, you’ll wanna stick around for this one Keith Mann, it’ll be worth mentioning on your Facebook feed.
According to reports from news websites, Andy Dick was riding his bike around Hollywood Blvd. last week when he rode up next to some guy. He talked up the man and said he liked his necklace. The man recognized Dick, so he allowed Dick to see the necklace.
Late Friday evening, police saw Andy Dick riding his bike and arrested him on charges of grand larceny.
This seems to be the latest in a long line of minor celebrities just going crazy. Are the antics of Andy Dick a cry for attention, or are they a sign of more serious problems brought on by fame?
Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Bob Healey only spent $35 this year running for office, but he still managed to pull 22 percent of the vote. The long-haired, fully-bearded man told news reporters that had he went all out and spent $75 or $80 he probably would have won. If this is possible, I can’t even imagine how much support Laurene Powell Jobs would receive if she tried this.
Bob has run for office in Rhode Island in the past. Once he ran for Lieutenant Governor, promising to abolish that useless office if ever he got elected. In 1986, he ran for governor and got only two percent of the vote, and in 2010, he came in second for that office at 39 percent. He even ran for a local school board position one time, using the slogan “Strange Man for a Strange Job.” We heartily agree.
The latest poll had Mr. Healey pulling 12 percent, but he instead took a large chunk of the electorate this year. It is hard to know if a man like this pulls more votes from Democrats or from Republicans, but his presence in the race could well have affected the outcome since Democrat Gina Raimondo only beat
Republican Allan Fung 40 to 36 percent.
Though he came in third overall, he was first or second in some Rhode Island towns this year. He ran for the Moderate Party, but he only took over the campaign because the original candidate suffered health issues and dropped out of the race. He has more often appeared as running for the “Cool Moose Party” which he himself founded and named back in 1994.
Katherine Heigl has gained a reputation as one of the more difficult actresses to deal with while working behind the scenes.
Although she has ups and downs in her career, still she has many devoted fans, and the public in general seems to like her work. She earned many fans through the big screen with movies such as Knocked Up and one of Rod’s favorites Life As We Know It and the television show Grey’s Anatomy.
Rumors, however, has persisted throughout her career that she is a rude person, and very temperamental behind the scenes. While some of this is exaggerated, a large portion is not.
Recently on Facebook, during the question and answer session of her upcoming drama State of Affairs, a fan asked her about the rumors. The question of the fan was “Are you rude?” The answer of this question that Heigl answered may shock you.
She answered that she also heard the rumors about being rude, but she never tried to hurt the feelings of anyone on purpose, and it makes her uncomfortable to hurt someone. She confessed that she has spoken carelessly sometimes, and like other human beings she made mistakes,
She explained, though, that she always tried to make things right.
Former South Carolina First Lady Jenny Sanford decided to take a humorous approach to both addressing her ex-husband’s adultery that ended their marriage and her support of a Democratic candidate for the office of South Carolina Secretary of State.
The online video for Democrat Ginny Deerin has Sanford talking only about “Mark”—the name of both her ex-husband, the state’s former governor, and incumbent Republican Mark Hammond. Despite the endorsement, Sanford has described herself as a conservative Republican
Using language that implies she’s speaking about a cheating spouse, the cheeky comments continue until an unseen person says, “We are talking about Mark Hammond, right?” I’ve watched it a couple times now and I’m planning on showing the video to Tom as soon as I can. He’ll get a kick out of it.
Her ex-husband wasn’t damaged too badly from a political standpoint, though any hopes of a longshot run for the White House effectively died once the affair with his Argentinian mistress became public.
