    Mena Suvari & Frances Fisher To Star In ‘Grace and Grit’ Indie

    (11/16/18) Mena Suvari and Frances Fisher have signed on to star in Grace and Grit, the indie feature adaptation of Ken Wilber’s book of the same title. Stuart Townsend, Mariel Hemingway, Lydia Hearst, Nick Stahl, Rebekah Graf, and Tara Subkoff also co-star in the Sebastian Siegel-directed film, which is currently in production.

    Siegel penned the screenplay. It’s based on a true story of the five-year courageous journey of Treya Wilber (Suvari) and Ken Wilber (Townsend), through their falling in love, marriage, and challenge to overcome illness and meaning to find love beyond life. The story takes place in the mid-1980’s between Muir Beach, Tahoe, and Boulder, Colorado.

    Siegel is also producing the pic with Lucas Jarach and Eric Brenner. Jim Jacobsen will serve as exec producer via Skyline Entertainment, which is financing.

    Suvari, who broke onto the scene with her roles in American Pie and American Beauty, was a series regular in the short-lived Paramount Network series, American Woman, and reprised her role as Elizabeth Short (a.k.a Black Dahlia) in FX’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

    Fisher’s notable credits include Titanic, Laws of Attraction, Unforgiven, and True Crime. Up next, she can be seen in Damon Lindelof’s forthcoming HBO series Watchmen.

    Suvari is repped by APA and Management Production Entertainment and Fisher is repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency.

    Former Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross winning secret battle with cancer

    (9/27/18) Former Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross has gone public with her anal cancer battle by revealing all her hair fell out during treatment.

    The 56-year-old actress posted a selfie on Instagram on Sept. 15 and gave fans a health update.

    “So grateful and happy to be alive but sad that my hair fell out and is about 1 inch long now and looks cra cra,” she wrote. “Anyone else have #hairloss due to #cancer? Talk to me. I feel you.”

    She added, “I am POST cancer. All good now. Hard journey, but I am HEALTHY, happy, and more present and grateful than ever. Thank you from the bottom of my ever expanding heart for all of your LOVE.”

    Marcia returned to social media a day later and explained the previous post had really empowered her.

    “After posting a picture of myself here and uttering the words #cancer and #hairloss, I felt liberated, deliriously free and completely me,” she wrote. “How or why this simple act gave me such a powerful lift I did not question, but I thanked God or whatever gave me the internal push to move forward and expose myself.

    “I certainly wasn’t expecting the response of love and kindness that flowed to me. My capacity to receive requires a massive expansion! I am ecstatically alive and what interests me post-cancer is #AUTHENTICITY. #VULNERABILITY. #TRANSPARENCY. And of course #LOVE.”

    It’s not the first time Cross has faced and beaten cancer – her husband, Tom Mahoney, was diagnosed in 2009, and, like his wife, is now healthy.

    General Hospital Vet Susan Brown Dead at 86, Remembered by Co-Stars

    (9/1/18) General Hospital alum Susan Brown, who played Scotty Baldwin’s stepmother, Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin, died on Friday at the age of 86.

    GH vet Kin Shriner, who plays Scotty, shared the news on Twitter, hailing Brown as “one of my best friends and costars…. R.I.P., Susan. I will miss all our laughs.”

    Brown first joined GH in 1977, earning a Daytime Emmy nomination two years later. She exited GH in the mid-80s, but recurred now and again, especially when Scotty’s family helped launch the ABC Daytime spinoff Port Charles. Brown last appeared on GH in a 2004 episode honoring the late Anna Lee, who had Lila Quartermaine.

    Brown’s previous TV credits included As the World Turns (as Adelaide Fitzgibbon), ABC’s mid-1960s sudser The Young Marrieds, Death Valley Days and Santa Barbara (as Dorothy Lane). Her most recent primetime role was a 1994 episode of Frasier.

    “She was so very special, on set and in friendship,” GH vet Jackie Zeman shared on Twitter, offering Shriner her condolences. “I remember all the good times we shared on our lunch breaks and at at her amazing dinner parties at her beautiful home. RIP Susan + God Bless.”

    Current GH boss Frank Valentini tweeted, “It’s a very sad day in Port Charles as the wonderful Susan Brown (“Gail Baldwin”) passed away today. My sincerest condolences to her family and to all who knew this amazing woman.”

    Brown’s GH husband, Peter Hansen (who played Scotty’s father, Lee Baldwin), passed away in April 2017, at the age of 95.

    Jennifer Bassey Married Actor George Bamford — Get the Romantic Details!

    (6/10/18) (Photo) Congratulations are in order for ALL MY CHILDREN actress Jennifer Bassey (Marian), who recently married fellow actor, LAW & ORDER alum George Bamford! The couple announced their engagement in November of 2016 and tied the knot on April 19, 2018. "They say it's never too late to love and be loved," Bassey tweeted. "I believe it!"

    The couple tied the knot in a simple ceremony at the City Clerk’s office in New York City. “We filled out the paperwork and went into a room and we were married,” Bassey told People. “After the ceremony, which was very short, I asked the officiant who married us what his name was. He said, ‘Angel.’ George turned to me and said, ‘We just got married by an angel.'" The couple then went to Little Italy for their first meal as man and wife.

    After Bassey’s husband of 30 years, Luther Davis, died in 2008, she took a grief recovery course and was inspired to help others deal with their own grief. One of the people she helped was Bamford, who was suffering after losing his wife of 50 years to cancer. One thing led to another and the pair fell in love!

    “Two and a half years later, here we are,” Bassey mused. “I never dreamed when I met George it would turn into this. From the first minute we met, it was very comfortable.”

    “She’s very giving and has a good heart,” Bamford said. “I sensed right away that she’s the kind of person who knows how to fall in love and has been in love, as I had. And once you’re in love and you’ve felt love, you miss it. And you long for it again and try to replicate it.”

    Such a beautiful and inspirational story — Our best wishes to the happy couple for a lifetime of happiness together!

    Ann Wedgeworth Dies: ‘Three’s Company’, ‘Sweet Dreams’ Actress Was 83

    (11/19/17) Ann Wedgeworth (Angela, The Edge Of Night/Lahoma, Another World/Charlie, One Life To Live/Lahoma, Somerset) a Tony Award-winning actress most widely known for roles on sitcoms Evening Shade and Three’s Company, died Thursday following a lengthy illness at a New York area nursing home, her family has announced. She was 83.

    Wedgeworth, who won a National Society of Film Critics Award for her tough but poignant performance in 1985’s Sweet Dreams – she played the mother of Jessica Lange’s Patsy Cline – won the 1978 Tony Award for best featured actress in a play for Neil Simon’s Chapter Two.

    Born in Abilene, Texas, Wedgeworth moved to New York City in the late 1950s and soon joined The Actors Studio. She debuted on Broadway in 1958’s Make a Million, and went on to take roles is such stage productions as Period of Adjustment and Blues for Mister Charlie. She appeared in A Lie of the Mind, Sam Shepard’s off-Broadway play, in 1985. Her costar in the production, Geraldine Page, had married Wedgeworth’s ex-husband, actor Rip Torn.

The character was essentially a substitute for Audra Lindley, who had been spun off for her own sitcom The Ropers.

    Wedgeworth is survived by husband Ernie Martin, daughters Danae Torn and Dianna Martin. Tony Torn, Danae Torn’s brother, tweeted news of Wedgeworth’s passing yesterday.

    Our history: P&G put the ‘soap’ in 'soap opera'

    (10/5/17) (cincinnati.com) Count soap operas among Procter & Gamble’s many successes. P&G was one of the first companies to sponsor daytime serial dramas on the radio in the 1930s to advertise their products to housewives. The shows were associated with sponsors such as P&G’s Oxydol, Duz and Ivory soaps and were dubbed “soap operas.”

    P&G was prolific, producing several long-running soap operas for radio and television.

    The company first dipped into radio in 1927, underwriting NBC’s “Radio Beauty School” to advertise Camay perfumed soap.

    Then, in 1930, Chicago radio station WGN hired Irna Phillips of Dayton to write “Painted Dreams,” a domestic serial drama. The format was appealing to P&G, as research suggested women would prefer to be entertained while they did housework.

    P&G had a top-notch radio studio in its own backyard with WLW, broadcasting from the Crosley Building in Camp Washington.

    After trying out “The Puddle Family Radio Show” in 1932, P&G sponsored “Ma Perkins” at WLW, starting Aug. 14, 1933. The 15-minute serial was picked up for a nationwide rollout on NBC on Dec. 4, 1933, and production moved to Chicago.

    “Ma Perkins,” sponsored by Oxydol laundry soap, starred Virginia Payne of Price Hill as the venerable widow who ran a lumberyard in the small Southern town Rushville Center and raised her three children. “The mother of all soap operas” was produced by Anne and Frank Hummert, the leading soap opera creators in the 1930s and ’40s.

    The connection to Oxydol was so strong that the show was often called “Oxydol’s Own Ma Perkins.”

    Although Oxydol dropped its sponsorship in 1956, “Ma Perkins” continued until Nov. 25, 1960, when all the remaining radio serials were canceled. The date became known as “the day radio drama died.”

    Payne played Ma Perkins in all 7,065 episodes over 27 years. She later performed on Broadway, then moved back to Cincinnati and often appeared in productions for Playhouse in the Park. Payne died in her Clifton home in 1977, at age 67.

    P&G sponsored numerous radio shows, including “Perry Mason,” “The Red Skelton Show,” “Truth or Consequences,” “The Road of Life,” “Dreft Star Playhouse” and “Against the Storm,” the only radio drama to win a Peabody Award.

    Their most successful production was “The Guiding Light,” a soap opera created by Irna Phillips in 1937, and sponsored by P&G White Naphtha Soap. The series transitioned to television in 1952, but continued to also be broadcast on radio until 1956.

    Procter & Gamble Productions produced several soap operas for television:

    » “Guiding Light” (1952 to 2009) is listed in the “Guinness Book of World Records” as the longest-running TV drama, running 57 years. Including radio, it ran 72 years, a total of 18,262 episodes.

    » “Search for Tomorrow” (1951-86) advertised P&G’s Joy dishwashing liquid and Spic and Span household cleaner.

    » “The Brighter Day” (1954-62) was created by Phillips for radio in 1948, and was the only soap with an overt religious theme.

    » “The Edge of Night” (1956-84) was conceived as a daytime version of “Perry Mason,” but Mason creator Erle Stanley Gardner had a fight with CBS and backed out. Instead, “Edge” was a thinly veiled copy with John Larkin, who portrayed Mason on radio. The show was set in the fictional Midwestern town Monticello, but the opening credits showed the Cincinnati skyline.

    » “As the World Turns” (1956 to 2010), Phillips’ sister show for “Guiding Light,” debuted the same day as “The Edge of Night” and became the second-longest running show, lasting 54 years.

    » “Another World” (1964-99) was supposed to be a spinoff of “As the World Turns,” thus the name, but it was picked up by a different network.

    “As the World Turns” ended its run on Sept. 17, 2010, the last P&G-owned soap opera.

    An original Playboy bunny remembers dousing rowdy customers with creme de menthe, earning a fortune in tips, and 'auditioning' for the position

    (10/1/17) (businessinsider.com) (Photo: Jennifer Bassey is in a black costume, third from right.) Jennifer Bassey applied to be a Playboy bunny the very first week the original Playboy Club opened, in Chicago in 1960.

    The Club was an integral part of what would become the Playboy empire, founded by Hugh Hefner, who died Wednesday at 91 years old. A bunny was a waitress or worker in the Club, though eventually the role evolved somewhat.

    The hiring process was simple — or impossible, depending on your perspective.

    "You put on an outfit and you walk around and then they hire you — if you look good," she told me when we spoke over the phone.

    Bassey, now 75, is an actress best known for playing Marian Colby on the soap opera "All My Children" for over 30 years. She spent about two years at the Playboy Club, working in the Penthouse Room, where she would sit on a piano and sing.

    Bassey recalled "grueling" hours at the Club — the bunnies would start work around 6 p.m. and wouldn't go home until about 4 a.m. Their feet would bleed through their fishnet stockings.

    Perhaps worst of all, customers would drink too much and get out of control.

    So the bunnies made a pact, Bassey remembered: If a man tried to grab a bunny, they'd "accidentally" spill a few creme de menthe cocktails on him. It was the only drink you you couldn't get out of clothes, Bassey said: "If you dropped creme de menthe on a man's suit, it was destroyed."

    But Bassey said she made a "fortune," estimating that in an average week, she'd make $1,000 — or about $8,400 today. As for salary? Bassey said there was none. In fact, you had to rent your own costume. Bassey put the bulk of her tip money toward her subsequent acting education in London.

    Though it's clear that bunnies didn't earn much in wages, there are varying accounts of their compensation. In Gloria Steinem's 1963 expose on the life of a Playboy bunny in New York City, she says that because of minimum-wage laws, "we must get a salary of $50 a week." And an old advertisement for Playboy bunnies, published by BuzzFeed, asserts that "a typical Chicago bunny may, for example, earn an average of $200 a week."

    Bassey said that much of her time as a bunny is now a "blur." But she sees the experience as instructive, and at least financially empowering.

    She said: "I'm not ashamed of anything I did."

    And the job afforded Bassey a surprising amount of leadership opportunity — Bassey said there were no bouncers or official managers in the Penthouse room, so she and the other bunnies were effectively in charge. "It was like the Wild West," she said.

    John Stamos and Lori Loughlin Finish Each Other's 'Sandwiches' In Adorable Frozen Sing-Along

    (8/24/17) (Video) Friendship is an open door.

    John Stamos and Lori Loughlin sang along to Frozen‘s “Love Is An Open Door” which Stamos posted on Instagram Wednesday, showing off their cuteness (and amazing chemistry!) to their thousands of fans.

    “‘Frozen’ in time w/ @loriloughlin,” Stamos, 54, wrote in the caption.

    The two appeared to be in the Fuller House set, on which Loughlin, 53, appeared from behind the iconic red door to sit beside Stamos.

    Stamos revealed to PEOPLE in 2015 that he and Loughlin shared “undeniable chemistry” while filming Full House.

    “People loved seeing us together,” he said. “No disrespect to her family and her husband now, I would say that she could be the one that got away. She’s one of my dearest friends, and that’s good enough. I really do adore her.”

    The Jesse and Becky chatter continued when the actress talked about Stamos in an interview the following year.

    “I was actually married at the time that I was doing the show,” Loughlin said of the Full House years. “And then when I got divorced, [John] met Rebecca Romijn, and he got married so our timing was just really off. I don’t think it ever entered our minds that it would be something more.”

    Miriam Colón Dies: Al Pacino’s Mom In ‘Scarface’, Latino Theater Founder Was 80

    (3/4/17) Miriam Colón (Maria 'Abuelita' Delgado, OLTL/Lydia Flores, AMC/Dr. Santos, EON), the Puerto Rican-born actress who whose roles over a seven-decade career included playing Al Pacino’s mother in Brian De Palma’s Scarface and who launched the influential Puerto Rican Traveling Theater in New York, died Friday at age 90. Her husband told the Associated Press that Colon died owing to complications from a pulmonary infection.

    Colón came to Los Angeles in the early 1950s and attended the Actors Studio. Her early TV credits included everything from Playhouse 90 to Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Dick Van Dyke Show. She had bigger roles in series like Gunsmoke and The Edge Of Night before being cast as Mama Montana in Scarface.

    Her later film credits include All The Pretty Horses and the Goal! movies, and she starred in Carl Franklin’s 2013 film Bless Me, Ultima playing Ultima in the adaptation of Rudolfo Anaya’s novel. She also recurred on HBO’s How To Make It In America and later on AMC’s Better Call Saul.

    Colón helped found the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater in 1967, after she starred alongside Raul Julia in the English-language adaptation of René Marqués’ The Ox Cart (La Carreta), about the Puerto Rican migration. It helped spur the bilingual theater movement in the U.S., launching acting careers and introducing new playwrights to the American scene.

    In 2015, she was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama in a White House ceremony for her contributions.
