Last Picture: Eileen Brennan Dies At 80 Comments (4)

The fabulous and incomparable Eileen Brennan has died at 80 in hospice care, a victim of bladder cancer. She spent her final years in poverty, and had recurring health issues following being hit by a car after a dinner out with  Goldie Hawn in 1982.

Brennan was a character actress who was a true original, her sardonic delivery rich with humor and pathos in equal parts. She was unforgettable in The Last Picture Show, The Sting Private Benjamin, Murder By Death and even the lightweight but beloved Clue.

Eileen-BrennanCome on, Eileen!

Eileen-Brennan-Private-BenjaminIn September, she told Globe:

"I'm also at a point where leaving this place behind is just fine and dandy with me!"

Shortly thereafter, Brennan appeared on a radio show to refute the story's assertion, saying:

"I'm not not ready...what's wrong with dying? We all do it. We all do it, man."

She is just one of those people whose death bothers me way more than it logically should.

DONNY-OSMOND
Unfortunately, the Globe (August 5, 2013) article this refers to isn't about that...it's just about how he has a tear in his buttock muscle that needs repair.

John-Travolta
Shots of John Travolta cavorting with cabana boys as part of a TV commercial shoot have been everywhere, but I especially liked Globe (July 29, 2013)'s take, which ended with: "Bottoms up!"

Armie-Hammer-sex-attack-Globe-July-8
In Globe (July 8, 2013), Armie Hammer discusses a time when he was banging a girlfriend who piped up with this chilling bit of dirty talk:

"True love leaves scars—you don't have any."

She then promptly tried to stab him with a butcher knife.

I don't think I'd want to leave any scars on lovely Armie. Maybe just an anal fissure or three.

C'mon...Shirley Jones Got Happy, Too Comments (0)

Shirley-Jones
In a piece about Shirley Jones's upcoming book Shirley Jones: A Memoir, Globe (July 1, 2013) underscores the fact that Jones did drugs, boozed, turned down a four-way with her hubby and the Joan Collinses and used to shag bipolar "love of my life" Jack Cassidy in a  garage near her house.

Shirley-JonesThe jacket's as red as Shirley is—she is a conservative Republican.

I guess if we'd known all of the above, all of the below wouldn't have been so funny and surprising a few years ago...

Michael-Douglas
Globe (June 10, 2013) breaks news that Michael Douglas was hit on by a male fan. Emphasis theirs. OMG. Probably the first time, like, ever, hence the dearie-in-the-headlights look. How queer.

Burt-Reynolds
I had such a thing for poor Bert Convy, who died young from brain cancer. He was the host of, among other things, Win, Lose or Draw, a series I loved...and it's coming back! Globe (June 3, 2013) says Disney Channel is hosting a new version of the game show.

Chris-Christie
Via Globe (June 3, 2013): Chris Christie's gastric bypass was performed by a doctor (Dr. George Fielding) accused of killing four patients. The man's rep is so bad he was smacked by a coroner's report for "his entrepreneurial approach" to medicine. Christie sure can pick 'em.
