BILL COSBY IS NOW LECTURING ON SEXUAL ASSAULT



BILL COSBY IS GOING TO HOLD TOWN MEETINGS TO LECTURE ON HOW TO AVOID SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES???????

REALLY?????     HOW STUPID AND ARROGANT ARE HIS PR PEOPLE?

I HOPE NO ONE SHOWS UP FOR HIM, BUT I'M SURE A FEW CRAZIES WILL.

GOOD LORD. THE WORLD AS WE KNEW IT IS OVER.

YES, THIS LARGE TYPE SIZE MEANS I'M SCREAMING.




Let's see---why don't we let out Charles Manson and have him lecture on Beach Boys music or Sharon Tate's movies?

Maybe Sirhan Sirhan could teach dancing while hypnotized?

Why doesn't OJ lecture on the art of knife sharpening?

THE BEST OF L.A.



EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT LIVE THERE   ANYMORE, MY OCCASIONAL VISITS 
        ARE FILLED WITH LOVE


Here's  a way to spend the day---

How perfect to have lunch with Jackie De Shannon in the garden of the Polo Lounge. You have a refreshing lemonade, a bit of a Mc Carthy salad, perhaps split their great cheeseburger, and top it off with Carrot Cake.---and you spend three hours doing it!



Then it's important to remember loved ones left behind (because I'm also one of them).

It was off to Debbie Reynolds Studio in North Hollywood, still jammed with dancers and show rehearsals, just the way she'd want it to be. She is everywhere there, in the air, on every wall, and in all our hearts.


And here is Margie Duncan, Debbie's stand-in and closest friend, who has run the studio for years. It was so wonderful just to be together, along with the man who took the picture, Donald Light, Debbie's live-in Major Domo

Continuing along the Reynolds-Fisher theme, we move to the Stevens-Fisher branch.

This photo was taken at another time, but ten of us went to a ridiculous restaurant called Crabby Pot and ate fish in oily red sauce from a plastic bag. The taste was great, but we needed to hose off after. That's why there are no pictures.
Tricia Leigh Fisher, Connie Stevens, Skylar Fisher-Duddy, True Fisher-Duddy, and Joely Fisher



And, just in case I needed more food, there was always this:

#19 Pastrami sandwich to go

COSBY HAS TEN CIVIL SUITS PENDING AGAINST HIM






DON'T WORRY. WHETHER IT IS CRIMINAL OR CIVIL, BILL COSBY WILL BE FOUND GUILTY AND PUNISHED AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER. JUST BE PATIENT AND CERTAIN.

Why I am pushing this? Because he attacked an actress/friend of mine. He threw her against the wall of his dressing room and she got away. She didn't press charges. This a pattern has gone on for decades. He also verbally attacked me by phone at one point because I made him angry over something I'd written. His behavior has been common knowledge in the the entertainment industry for decades and decades.

LIONEL RICHIE---AMERICAN IDOL JUDGE?????


LIONEL RICHIE---RESPECTED, BUT LOW                 ENERGY PERSONALITY-
          WILL BRING IN NO RATINGS



Not the best idea, people. I want to see AMERICAN IDOL  come back. I loved the show through thick and thin, BUT it's a different TV landscape now. Although I don't care for Katy Perry, she has BIG CRED and appeal. She also cost the producers a fortune, which, by the way, I don't think will pay off for them financially or ratings-wise in the end. But, the producers have very little budget left to spend on other judges.



In my opinion, this isn't going well. Bad choices in the beginning are hard to overcome for any show, but, particularly a reboot.

I know they might say----who were Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson? We made our own stars.
Well, that was then and now is now. Frankly, the better choice would be to have Katy Perry with some really high-energy, but respected less-known executives. In this  current possible configuration, the smartest thing they could do is to put Paula Abdul back. THAT I'd watch!

CELEBRITY "MIS"----JUSTICE


                   WHAT A CROCK......
         AND SO TOTALLY EXPECTED




I literally wrote this blog days ago, in anticipation of either a mis-trial or a not guilty verdict. I hate being right sometimes. The only information I needed to press send was which cop-out way it would go.

Shame on you! Stupid, manipulated, star-struck jurors.

MEDIA VITRIOL FUELS WACKOS



LET'S TALK ABOUT RESPONSIBILITY!!!!!!!






24 HOURS A DAY ON TV AND RADIO, PEOPLE ARE SCREAMING AT EACH OTHER ABOUT POLITICS

Turn on any cable channel and you'll see people on the right and the left, filled with hatred toward each other yelling their heads off. We're never going to be able to stop it until ratings fall and sponsor money disappears

As long as this viciousness continues, it will incite mentally deranged people to violence

You can talk about more gun control, and that's all well and good, but any nut will always be able to get a gun or an assault rifle from the black market

The problem is societal, and the media has no interest in taking responsibility

STOP WATCHING, PEOPLE!!!!!  I turned off all these shows over a year ago


Let's be kind and respectful to one another

WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SLAP??? THE NEW GAME



IF YOU COULD SLAP ANYONE IN THE WORLD, WHO WOULD IT BE?

NO. 1
This is not about violence, and, of course, it is a figurative slap. There's usually humor/annoyance involved. 
I'm going to name some people I'd like to "slap." If you don't get the joke, then this game is not for you. If it is for you, you'll know exactly why I want to slap these people and I would never need to tell you why.

JUST FOR STARTERS:
























WHO WOULD YOU ADD? I'm just getting started.

REMEMBER.........1968 AND 1944 JUNE 6



                                                                D-DAY

ARIANA GRANDE, NOT YOUR ORDINARY POP STAR







SOMETIMES A MOMENT IN TIME HAPPENS TO YOU THAT WILL BRAND YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. IT IS USUALLY SOMETHING UNEXPECTED, AND THE CHOICE YOU MAKE IT HANDLING IT DEFINES YOU.

Ariana Grande will be 24 on June 26. In the eyes of the world now, she is a courageous, authentic, dignified, compassionate hero........wise beyond her years, with a grace that will last forever.


I've loved her vocal instrument from the very beginning, and knew she had to package it into something commercial for our times. But, who knew the giant that lived within the tiny girl? I was going to watch ONE LOVE MANCHESTER out of respect, a desire to mourn, and, I knew I'd love the music.

I had no intention of watching all of it.

I watched and cried for the entire concert, in awe of the pint-sized girl who clearly was the leader. Whether it was seeing her embrace the little girl from the choir who was so overcome she couldn't sing, to Ariana breaking down more than once herself.

She and her moment are set for the ages.



P.S. Justin Bieber? Wow. He grew up and moved me and the rest of the world. Amazing.

GOD BLESS ROGER SMITH AND ANN-MARGRET


                  A TRUE LOVE STORY


                                             ANN-MARGRET AND ROGER SMITH


He really was her knight in shining armor, and she was his princess. They were one of the most devoted couples in Hollywood. He was a true gentleman, who took incredible care of her. And Ann-Margret is one of the kindest, sweetest angels I've ever had the pleasure to know. I am sending her all my prayers, and I'm heartbroken for her. God bless them.






CONGRATULATIONS, JULIE ARASKOG!!!!

Araskog wins Palm Beach town council election





OUR DEAR FRIEND,  JULIE ARASKOG, IS NOW A COUNCILPERSON IN PALM BEACH!!!
Julie graduated about three years ago from Notre Dame Law School, and her law degree will be put to good use in Palm Beach. She ran on a platform of really listening to residents' needs and keeping development in check.

The other night, all her L.A. friends met at Mr Chow to celebrate. It was our first chance to cheer her on. Julie took over the private room, and, I must confess, that Kathy Hilton, Tracy DanzaDagny Dubelko, and I stayed waaaayyyyy after it was time to go home. We stayed until almost 1:00 a.m. I felt really sorry for the two Mr. Chow employees who had to stay.
