RIP Georgia Engel
April 15th, 2019 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Georgia Engel passed away on Friday at the age of 70. According to ABC News, her friend said the cause of death is unknown because she was a Christian Scientist.

Engel is best known for playing the lovable, naive Georgette, who was smarter than everyone thought, on The Mary Tyler Moore. From that show on, she continued to act, sing and dance on television and on the stage. In fact, her last role was One Day at a Time just last year.

Between those two shows, her big welcoming smile was seen on Mork & Mindy, Coach, Passions, The Office, Two and a Half Men and Hot In Cleveland to name a few.

Along with those roles, she had a memorable one as Brad Garrett’s sweet and innocent mother-in-law with a little bit of a naughty side to her. To me that perfectly sums up the actress, she looks so sweet and innocent, but you can tell there is just some so naughty about her.

She just had a way about her that drew you to her. Her comedic timing came naturally. I have been watching her in repeats of The Mary Tyler Moore Show on Sundance Channel, and the newbie held her own against all of those comedic legends. In fact, sometimes she was even better than all of them. There was just so much light in that little package.

Today honor the Tinkerbell of the Hell’s Angels, as Don Rickles described her as, in one of her many great roles. Remember her with a smile as big as hers because I am sure that is how she would want to be remembered.


RIP Luke Perry
March 4th, 2019 under Beverly Hills 90210 / Melrose Place, Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Luke Perry passed away today at the age of 52 just days after suffering a massive stroke. His publicist told Good Morning America, “He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends

“The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning. No further details will be released at this time.”

In 1992, women fell in love with Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210 and men wanted to be him. His was like a reincarnation of James Dean, effortlessly cool. From that moment on, he never stopped acting.

He did several disaster movies like Scorcher, Supernova and Final Storm along with some Westerns. His biggest movie, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will forever be adored by teens.

He could never get away from being that person that teenagers would admire. His last role is on The CW’s Riverdale. This time the eternal teenager played the dad of one. Something he knew oh too well because he has two kids of his own.

Today, let’s honor the man that we either wanted to be or be with by watching one of his many roles. He will forever be that suave guy that stood out in a crowd.

You can watch a few of his movies and 90210 on TubiTV for free.


RIP Katherine Helmond
March 1st, 2019 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Katherine Helmond passed away on Saturday at the age of 89 from complications of Alzheimer’s according to The Hollywood Reporter. David Christian, her husband, said, “We spent 57 beautiful, wonderful, loving years together, which I will treasure forever. I’ve been with Katherine since I was 19 years old. The night she died, I saw that the moon was exactly half-full, just as I am now … half of what I’ve been my entire adult life.”

Helmond began acting in the ’50s, but did not get her big break until 1977. That is when she was cast as the beautiful, lovable, naive Jessica Tate on Soap. No one could have played that beloved character as well as she did.

After Soap ended, she did several movies and guest appearances, and then she landed another part that would make us fall in love with her all over again. She starred as Mona, the sexy grandmother, on Who’s the Boss.

Those are two of her most famous roles but we also know the fiery redhead from The Hindenberg, Brazil, Time Bandits, Overboard, Coach, Everybody Loves Raymond, True Blood and the Cars franchise. These are just a few of the many roles she had from 1955 up until last year. She did not let age slow her and continued acting for as long as she can.

Today let’s remember her spunky spirit by watching one of her many beloved parts. I will watch Soap on Antenna TV because she always found a way to make laugh on every episode. I will smile through the tears.


RIP Albert Finney
February 8th, 2019 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Albert Finney passed away from a short illness at the age of 82 according to Daily Mail.

Finney began acting in 1960 and continued doing so until a cancer diagnosis in 2011. Throughout his 50-year career, he received five Oscar nominations, but no wins. What he did win was the hearts of little girls like me as Daddy Warbucks in Annie.

That was just one of his many credits where he won over his audience. There was also Tom Jones, Scrooge, Murder on the Orient Express, Erin Brockovich, The Gathering Storm, two Bourne movies and Skyfall.

Today, remember him magnificent career by watching one of his many great works. I will do it by singing Tomorrow. He might not have one, but his legacy will.


RIP Kristoff St. John
February 4th, 2019 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Kristoff St. John was found dead yesterday at his home from apparent natural causes according to TMZ.

The 52-year-old actor had his first on-camera gig back in 1975 when was just 8 years old in That’s My Mama and he never stopped acting. In the ’70s and ’80s, he starred in and guest starred on several shows and movies, but then in 1991, he got the job he is most known for. That is when he cast a Neil Winters on The Young & The Restless. A role that earned him 2 Daytime Emmy Awards, 9 nominations and countless fans.

In 2014, tragedy struck him and he was never the same. That is when his son Julian committed suicide in a mental health facility. After that, he went into a downward spiral. Things were looking up for him when he proposed to his girlfriend, Kseniya Mikhaleva, in September. His fiancee wrote this about him today, “How did it happen ??? How ??? Why did you leave so early ???? and left me alone ….. I can’t believe 💔💔💔💔 you were everything to me …. you were a loving father, a loving man,… 😢😢😢😭😭😭😭💔💔💔💔 love??we should doing a lot of things in future……” Now instead of planning their wedding, they are planning his funeral.

If you know someone who needs help, then don’t hesitate but to get them help ASAP.
