Want to own Jackie Gleason’s Mothership?
July 5th, 2018 under For sale, MeTV, Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]

Jackie Gleason was such huge success, thanks to The Honeymooners, that he was able to make whatever type of house he wanted. That is exactly what he did in Westchester, NY when he asked an architect to build him a house in the shape of a UFO back in 1959. Since rich people like to name their houses, he called his The Mothership.

The Mothership is up for sale according to MeTV and you can own the roundhouse for $12,000,000. Zillow says the 8-acre property has 3 buildings, 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathrooms, 2 bars, 2 pools and a cardroom. How sweet it is!

I just wish I had the money to buy it because it seems like a dream house in a dream locale.


Ed Asner shows us people do asks celebrities for Selfies in the bathroom!
March 8th, 2018 under Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]

On Sunday night, Ed Asner was watching the Oscars with a lot of other celebrities at The Hollywood Museum. When he went to the bathroom, Jack Maxwell, another actor, remembered working Lou Grant while they were using the loo, and took a photo with his old costar right then and there. I guess, he could not wait a few more seconds until they were outside, but then again the lighting is really good in there and it is the legendary Ed Asner. So you can’t blame him. Although, the guy in the background is all of us when we saw this picture. He just saw it lot closer then we did.

So when you hear all of these celebrities say that fans ask them for photos in the bathroom, now you know what it looks like. Poor celebs!


Robert Wagner is reportedly a person of interest in Natalie Wood’s death
February 1st, 2018 under Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]
On November 28, 1981, Natalie Wood went on a boat trip with her husband, Robert Wagner and friend and actor Christopher Walken. The next day her body was found floating in the Pacific Ocean off of Catalina Island. Since then people have wondered if the actress, who was terrified of water after a childhood incident while filming, was murdered by her husband, who it has been said that she got in a fight with before she went missing and was found dead. Back then her death was considered an accident with it being claimed that she accidentally fell off of the boat because she was drunk.

Six years ago, there was some new evidence discovered and LAPD reopened the case. This Saturday at 10p on CBS’s 48 Hours, an investigator gives and update and says that Wagner is now considered a person of interest. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant John Corina tells the show, “I mean, we know now that he was the last person to be with Natalie before she disappeared.” He has yet to grant them an interview since the case was reopened.

The news magazine will speak to a few detectives and her sister Lana Wood. They will also use archival interviews with Wagner and Captain Dennis Davern. Neither Walken nor Wagner have given 48 Hours a comment even though they reached out to them about the episode.


Warren Beatty is a lot more boring than we were told!
April 14th, 2017 under Graham Norton, Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]

Warren Beatty was on The Graham Norton Show and the host wanted to if some of those most famous rumors about him are true. Rumors like if the Shampoo star used to wash his hair with a 6-pack of beer every day? That one is false.

Also false, is that Beatty and Jack Nicholson had their own secret passageway into the Playboy mansion. As if they would need one during their hay day because they were both the sexiest male actors of the ’70s and the playmates would welcome them with open tails.

He does know where his Oscar for Reds is. He did not have the crotch on the Heaven Can Wait poster enlarged. After looking at it, I think he should’ve asked for the John Holmes.

Even though he says he doesn’t know if Carly Simon wrote You’re So Vain about him, she confirmed that she did. I guess he isn’t as vain as she thought he was because a real vain person would say they think that song is about them.

Finally, has the former Playboy bedded over 13,000 women? The actor did the math and said it is impossible. Denying that fact like that makes me think the only women he has been with are Carly Simon, Carrie Fisher, Madonna and Annette Benning. Why? Because this interview proved how boring he is. No matter how hot he was in his youth, I wouldn’t want to sleep with him after listening to him talk. Granted, you don’t have to talk to him but still. If he did bed me, it would be me falling asleep in bed.

In other words, this interview proves that Beatty is as exciting as Wonder Bread and it is a wonder he got anyone in bed.

Seriously, if I was rumored to have the life he supposedly led, I would own it! Lie, we would not know! In other words, he made a career out of telling lies, why not lie about his real life too? That is what we want!


Ed Asner gives a f*ck!
March 16th, 2017 under Old Hollywood. [ Comments: none ]

Steven Weber got to together with Ed Asner and the Wings star shared this photo from their meeting. It is so Lou Grant, I love it! Too bad we couldn’t see him do that on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, but at least we get to see him do it now. And more importantly it is nice to see that the 87 year old still has a wicked sense of humor!
