RIP Eddie Fisher
September 24th, 2010 under Connie Stevens and Joely Fisher, Obits. [ Comments: none ]

’50s crooner Eddie Fisher passed away on Wednesday due to complications from his hip surgery. His eldest daughter with Debbie Reynolds Carrie Fisher Tweeted, “My Puff Daddy passed away Wednesday night due to complications following his hip surgery. He was an extraordinary talent and a true mensch.”
Eddie was as known for his music as much as for his marriages to Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor and Connie Stevens. He divorced Debbie for Liz and she left him for Richard Burton.
Besides Carrie, his daughter Joely Fisher with Connie Stevens is also an actress. He is survived by 4 children and 6 grandchildren.
Instead of remembering his scandals let’s remember his music today.


Fox kills Til Death
March 28th, 2010 under Connie Stevens and Joely Fisher, Fox. [ Comments: none ]

The show that didn’t seem like it would ever die, is dead. Fox has finally cancelled Til Death. The show’s star Brad Garret told Zap2It, “‘Til Death” is done for good. “The other night, we got an 0.8 [rating]. Once your mom stops watching, you’re an 0.4. The network said, ‘What do you suggest?’ I said, ‘If you give me one more month, I can take you to a zero.’ And there was dead silence.”
I have to admit I am one of the few viewers left that was helping the show get a .4 rating. I am bummed that Fox didn’t renew the show because I wanted to see how many more actresses they could get to play Brad and Joely Fisher’s daughter Allison, they were already up their 4th one. I think that is most replacements for one character on any show, so at least the show will go down in the record books for something.
BTW catch the final episodes on Fox tonight and every Sunday for an hour starting at 7p!


Red Buttons remembered by comedic greats
August 8th, 2006 under Admirable People, Connie Stevens and Joely Fisher. [ Comments: none ]

Despite his request, Red Buttons was indeed remembered Monday night with a "celebration of life and laughter" at Mark Fleischman’s Century Club. Arthur Kassel orchestrated the SRO event which included a reel of Red’s remarkable performances, ranging from laughs to tears. He could do it all. The list of those there, many of whom spoke included: Steve Martin, Rob Reiner (demonstrating Red’s genius on stage), Charles Durning, who told two of Buttons’ classic jokes. Also sharing in the laughs were Joe Bologna and Renee Tayor, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, Dick Benjamin and Paula Prentiss, Monty Hall, and Arthur Hiller Button, who all told Buttons’ stories. Also on hand: William Morris’ Lou Weiss and Norman Brokaw, Jayne Meadows, Rhonda Fleming, Sally Kellerman, Sally Kirkland, Michelle Philips, Elliot Gould,  Harry Dean Stanton,  Rose Marie, Valerie Harper, Michele Lee, Eric Roberts, Stella Stevens, Nanette Fabray,  Dabney Colman, Byron Allen,  Kevin Nealon, Mickey Rooney,  Connie Stevens and daughters Joely and Tricia, Doris Roberts, Pia Zadora, Lou Ferrigno, Warren Cowan, A.C.Lyles,  Gary Owens, Rabbi Jerry Cutler, former Calif. Governors, Gray Davis and Pete Wilson, Hollywood Mayor  Johnny Grant who declared Monday and Tuesday "Red Buttons Days,"  Sheriff Lee Baca, for whose organizations Red was an always-ready star, said, "I wish I had been the guy who arrested Mel Gibson." Bill Maher said "Mel Gibson had made a three-picture deal with Hezbollah." Chuck Ashman emceed. Ed Lozzi and Norby Walters assisted Kassel with the "Celebration." Adam Buttons paid a touching tribute to his dad, his sister, Amy was unable to attend. She told me (on the phone) she wanted to be there, but a sinus infection felled her.

It is nice to see when some of Hollywood’s newer names remember one the best of the older ones.
