Famed comedian actor William Henry “Bill” Cosby Jr. is best known for hit television series The Cosby Show . He is also famous for being an author, television producer, musician, and educator. Despite being 77, Cosby is still hard at work. NBC was planning to debut a return of The Cosby Show, as well at Netflix scheduling to stream a stand-up Cosby special. However, due to recent allegations, both have decided to postpone these airings.
Recently, it has been put out on the headlines that numerous women are accusing Bill Cosby for sexual abuse that occurred back in the 1970’s and 1980’s. These accusations were sparked by the announcement of a return of the sitcom on NBC. Just a few days ago, supermodel Janice Dickinson came forward and became the fifth woman to officially accuse Cosby of drugging and raping them. At this time, Bill Cosby has refused to answer any questions about the claims and his attorney is speaking for him in saying that “he will not dignify these allegations with any comment”, as reported during a NPR interview.
With these unproven allegations, the name Bill Cosby has become a controversial one. The “great American dad” has been rejected by NBC and in turn has had a turning point in his career. Bill Cosby has made media headlines in a negative light and will have to deal with the criticism until the story subsides. Whether these are legit accusations or not, the true Cosby fans will get him through this difficult stage in his life. Thanks to friend of the site Ben Shaoul for contributing this news piece.
James Franco was spotted sporting a fully shaved head along with his moustache at Los Angeles Country museum. This made several tweeters not so happy looking at it.
Franco is well known for his beautiful locks, so it certainly comes as no small surprise that he’d decide to shave it all off all of a sudden.
Many tweeted in a way not so kind looking at the appearance. It was reported that a tweet just said that a user is expecting Franco to get his hair grown and have his moustache full shaved this Christmas.
It was also believed that few started commenting that he does not have the guts to shave off the moustache. Franco was consistently to be following stars like Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt and Mike Cera in growing their moustache. I agree with Christian Broda when he says they look silly. They have all considered it as a comeback for them. Lots of information on this has been explained in the news.
Many considers growing moustache as the fashion in 1970s and as sign of the pornography films. It keeps changing from period to the other.
It was after the 1970s that the moustache was more adopted by gay people, policemen and other officers.
She’s larger than life and loving every minute of it. For Melissa McCarthy, she doesn’t care about her size, but its her health that most concerns her. Will she ever be a size 2, no but she doesn’t care either. Her recent 45 lb. weight loss is making headlines. In a world where starving to fit in is cool, McCarthy dares to be different.
Despite what most people think, McCarthy has been on slow ventures through Hollywood for some time. She first found a seat at the table and won the hearts of many along the way in Gilmore Girls. After some small television stints, she landed her first hit show. Mike and Molly is one of CBS greatest shows. It has drama, laughter and plenty of family dysfunction. Add a few hit shows with her latest highly rated movie career, and it seems people could care less what size her body is, just how good she acts.
It’s reported that she can earn upwards of $10 million dollars per movie. That’s pretty good for a day’s work. Her latest movies “Identity Thief” and “The Heat” have been big grossing splashes at the box office. Her latest movie “Tammy” didn’t gross as much, but it was still a feel good movie that makes fans want more.
She’s a good role model for Hollywood.
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?
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.
While Donald Trump, self-made billionaire and real estate giant, has made hints at running in 2016 in the past and did the same concerning the 2012 election in which he never ran, this time he has put down a time frame for making a decision. That may seem like a small difference, but it is something he did not do previously, and it may be a sign that this time he is more serious about the prospect of making a run for the Oval Office.
Trump has been a speaker of late (2013) for the Conservative Political Action Conference and spent over a million dollars in 2013 researching the possibility of running for President in 2016. These do seem like the actions of one genuinely weighing his chances and the best strategy to utilize in a campaign.
While Donald Trump is conservative enough to gain some traction in the Republican Party (pro-life, pro-gun, pro-business, pro-small-government), yet he seems likely to suffer the same fate as Mitt Romney. Unfortunately, rich tycoons do not do well even when their stands are correct and their records are pristine. Further, Trump fits the bill for living extravagantly if anyone does- something that was falsely smeared onto Romney’s reputation during the 2012 campaign. If the modest, mild-mannered Mormon with a long record of generosity and moderate living cannot shake the “rich guy who doesn’t understand us” persona, how can someone who in some ways indeed fits that description (even if he be in many ways a great human being) expect to wade through the waters of vicious political adds to victory in 2016?
Finally, Trump is as well known for his “Trump-isms” as Joe Biden is for his Biden-isms. Even in the latest interview we hear him talk about how America needs someone great, not just good to make America great again- while the prospect of he himself being that “great” candidate lurks all the while in the background. He even said that it would be good, though not required, if the person come from the private sector (such as he does).
Martin Short has never stopped working, from his time at SCTV to his stint on Saturday Night Live where his characters had viewers tuning in every Saturday night just to see what he would come up with next. And then there was Glick, the very self-absorbed talk show host who never let his guests get a word in edgewise or any other way.
According to Rolling Stone, he has been busy since then, taking small but colorful roles in movies and is now on a Fox TV sitcom titled “Mulaney”, where he plays the completely self-obsessed boss of the title character.
Short talks about his character, Lou Cannon, who he calls “a moron with power”, adding that “those people are my specialty”. He elaborates on his role, but hedges when asked who it might be based on.
Not to mention the memoir “I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend”, which is out in November.
So what is Martin Short doing now? The question might be better phrased as “What is Martin Short not doing now”?
