Ray Liotta passed away in his sleep today at the age of 67. According to Deadline, he was in the Dominican Republic filming the movie Dangerous Waters at the time of his death. Foul play is not suspected.

Liotta’s break-out role came in 1989 when he played Shoeless Jackson in Field of Dreams. Then in 1990, he because a household name due to a movie called Goodfellas. From that moment on, he continued to star in movies and TV shows on both the big and small screen. Productions like Article 99, Hannibal, Blow, Wild Hogs, Muppets Most Wanted, The Rat Pack, and Shades of Blue. Those are just a few of the many memorable parts he had throughout his career.

Liotta was getting ready to play a husband again to his fiancee, Jacy Nittolo. The couple got engaged in 2020. The actor is also survived by his daughter, Karsen Liotta, from his marriage to Michelle Grace.

Today let’s remember Liotta by watching him do what he did best, entertaining us. I will start by rewatching.

RIP Fred Ward

Fred Ward passed away on Sunday at the age of 79, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor spent nearly 50 years entertaining us and had a resume consisting of comedies, dramas, horror, romantic comedies, and so much more.

He is known for his work in The Right Stuff, Swing Shift, Henry & June, Naked Gun 33+1⁄3: The Final Insult, Tremors, Tremors 2, Joe Dirt, and Sweet Home Alabama, to name a few.

However, my favorite movie of his is Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. He plays a tough NYC cop who is trained by a Korean martial artist to be a killing machine. Normally, I am not into movies like this, but he was so lovable in it that you couldn’t but to love the film.

So today, let’s honor him by watching Remo Williams or one of his many other roles. Let’s show him we will always love him.

Ashley and Wynonna Judd honored their mom at the Country Music Hall of Fame

Naomi Judd passed away yesterday at the age of 76, and tonight she was supposed to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame with her older daughter, Wynonna, for their duo, The Judds.

However, that did not come to pass because she passed. Her daughters, Ashley and Wynonna, could’ve stayed at home, but they showed up to honor their mother on what should have been a happy occasion.

Ricky Skaggs introduced The Judds, and then the two sisters accepted their medallions. When they were done with that, they each gave a speech. Ashley started it off with, “My momma loved you so much, and she appreciated your love for her, and I’m sorry that she couldn’t hang on until today.”

Ashley then went on to say that honor was not only their mom’s but also their sister’s. Then she went on to praise her sister.

When she was done, it was time for Wynonna to talk.”I didn’t prepare anything tonight ’cause I knew that mom would probably talk the most,” Wynonna said with tears in her eyes. “I feel so blessed, and it’s a very strange dynamic to be this broken and this blessed … but though my heart is broken, I will continue to sing.”

Wynnona said that she kissed her mom on the forehead one final time at 2:20p and hadn’t spoken from that moment until she accepted the award. Then, she said the last time they were together; they read Psalm 23 together. So she read it with the audience.

When Wynonna was done, they thanked their peers and walked off the stage.

My heart breaks for them. I know what it is like to lose both of my parents, and it is never easy. I admire their courage for going through with the ceremony, but I think they felt it is what their mother would’ve wanted.

It was the perfect place to hold a memorial service and let the people who knew and loved their mom honor her.

The Judds are loved by Country Music, and you can’t get more country than this.

So, to Wynonna and Ashley, thank you for sharing your mom with us during the good and bad times. Thank you for honoring her tonight in such a beautiful way. She is looking down on you with pride, and know she is at peace. She is why we say Rest In Peace. Because that is what she is doing. The pain is gone, and she is free.

RIP Naomi Judd
April 30th, 2022 under Obits, The Judds. [ Comments: 1 ]


Ashley and Wynonna Judd announced today that their mother, Naomi passed away today at the age of 76. “Today, we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness. We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”

2022 was supposed to be an excellent year for The Judds. Naomi and Wynonna were going to hit the road in September for a final tour. They recently reunited and played the CMT Awards, much delight to their fans. And tomorrow, they were going to be inducted into the County Music Hall of Fame.

In 2016, the singer released her book River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope. Sometimes when a depressed person is full of so much hope and joy to look forward to, it has the opposite effect on them. I am not saying that is the case, but that was my first thought when I heard of her passing.

Depression is an evil thing that takes over everything, and it is impossible once again to get control of yourself. Even the happiest of things make you sad.

Hopefully, now Naomi is at peace and truly happy. My heart goes out to her husband, Larry Strickland, daughters, and grandchildren.

RIP Gilbert Gottfried
April 12th, 2022 under Gilbert Gottfried, Obits. [ Comments: none ]





Gilbert Gottfried passed away from complications from muscular dystrophy at the age of 67. His family wrote, “We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our beloved Gilbert Gottfried after a long illness. In addition to being the most iconic voice in comedy, Gilbert was a wonderful husband, brother, friend and father to his two young children. Although today is a sad day for all of us, please keep laughing as loud as possible in Gilbert’s honor.”

Gottfried got his start on Saturday Night Live, but then he, literally, found his voice. Once he did, we knew we were never going to forget it. That is because his high-pitched, nasally voice penetrated every inch of your body when he told a joke.

That is why he was perfect for the voice of Iago the Parrot in<del datetime=”2022-04-12T20:11:47+00:00″> Aladin and the Aflac Duck. But he was also in front of the camera in productions like the Problem Child franchise, two Sharknados, and so much more.

Just like an earthquake, you always heard him before you felt him.

It is fitting that his last role was voicing Gd in Smiling Friends. Because now, he is making Gd smile.

Gottfried is survived by his wife Dara and their children, Lily Aster, 14, and Max Aaron, 12.
