Doris Day's Official 95th-B'day Snap! Comments (0)

Annex - Day  Doris_05Doris's special Day is today! (Image via handout)

See Doris Day's official 95th birthday photo here — she looks fantastic!

Isn't it odd to realize she's the same age as Betty White, yet Betty White is known to all millennials and has worked steadily since the 1940s, whereas Day — who conquered music, movies and TV and became an animal-rights activist (like Betty!) — has been a semi-recluse for decades.

It's just a strange comparison, but it does my heart good to see Day looking lively. I sure wish she'd travel to Hollywood and pick up a long-overdue honorary Oscar.

How Cher, 40, Almost Lost THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK For Being TOO OLD Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-03-21 at 1.26.35 PM(Video still via Carlos Acosta)

Cher, currently on a mini-tour, was caught on video (thank you, Carlos!) telling the story of how she reluctantly appeared on David Letterman's show that time when she famously called him an asshole. Shockingly, she admits she was paid $28K for the appearance, which she demanded in order to satisfy a hotel bill.

This was all around her 40th birthday, which was well and truly ruined when George Miller, the director of The Witches of Eastwick (1987) called and said:

I don't want you — Jack Nicholson thinks that you're not very sexy and you're too old.

Cher herself clarified this story, tweeting me:

She wrapped her story by saying,:

But now, this is this, okay? I'm 70 — what's your grandma doing tonight?

Keep reading to watch the video and hear and see a snippet of Cher's show ...

Early Rock 'n' Roller Chuck Berry, Guitar God, Dies @ 90 Comments (0)

Chuck Berry, a man everyone except the youngest people out there will always remember doing the above, has died at 90 after being found unresponsive in his St. Louis home.

Via ExtraTV:

Police confirmed they responded to a medical emergency Saturday at 12:40 p.m. at Berry's St. Louis home. Berry was found to be unresponsive and, in spite of life-saving measures that were administered, he was declared dead at 1:26 p.m., according to police.

The department issued a statement that read, “The St. Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry. The family requests privacy during this time of bereavement.”

Berry's “Johnny B. Goode” (1958) became his signature hit, and would later liven up Back to the Future (1985):

 

Berry was also the hitmaker behind iconic tunes like “Maybellene” (1955), “Roll Over Beethoven” (1956) and “You Never Can Tell” (1964), the latter of which you may remember from Pulp Fiction (1994):

Berry wrote the tune in prison in 1962 while serving what wound up being 20 months of a three-year sentence for transporting a 14-year-old girl from Mexico to his nightclub for what he said was a job, but what she said — after being fired — was really a sexual arrangement. Regardless of Berry's guilt or innocence, he felt railroaded by the all-white jury and emerged, according to fellow rocker Carl Perkins, an embittered man.

In the '80s and '90s, Berry's sexual proclivities — an obsession with making and watching porn, a predilection for heavy scat — became the stuff of legend, as documented by Vice via this sordid fax to the late Bob Guccione Sr.

Nevertheless, Berry's career prospered and he never stopped performing. He would go down in history as among the first Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and was the subject of a Kennedy Center Honors ceremony, at which he was congratulated by President Bill Clinton in 2000.

His final album — his twentieth — is set for release in 2017. He said in December he was dedicating Chuck to his wife of almost 70 years, Thelmetta, a woman he reportedly hadn't lived with in decades.

Fifties film siren Mamie Van Doren, who just turned 86 years old, blasted the late Bob Hope on FB today, calling him out for taking money in exchange for his tours of war zones, and then never really touring the hot spots like some of his invited entertainers did.

She also entertainingly posted the pic at the top of this post, zapping him for his ... persistence.

FYI, this is what Mamie looks like TODAY, in her mid-80s:

TV Icon Mary Tyler Moore Dies @ 80 Comments (0)

Mary Tyler Moore, whose showbiz career began as Happy the Hotpoint Elf in the early '50s and went on to help define quality entertainment on TV in the '60s and '70s, has died of complications from pneumonia. She had just turned 80 last month.

Earlier, TMZ had broken the news that Moore was on her deathbed at a Connecticut hospital.

Moore's death was confirmed in a statement to Extra:

Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine. A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.

Moore's biggest early break came mostly off-screen, playing sultry Sam on Richard Diamond, Private Detective (1957—1960), a role she held in 1959, and which required only her killer legs and suggestive voice — she was never seen.

Along with many early-TV guest spots, Moore moved on to the role of Laura Petrie on the Kedslaurapetrie classic The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961—1966). Embodying pluck, a fresh face on traditional femininity and comic chops that kept up with veterans like Van Dyke, Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie, Moore became America's sweetheart, and made bank, allowing her to move forward in the future as a woman calling the shots.

Though hard to believe comparing the style and subject matter of the two shows, it was only four years later that her The Mary Tyler Moore Show aka Mary Tyler Moore debuted.
