FEUD: Capote Vs. The Swans looks scandalous
January 3rd, 2024 under Demi Moore, Naomi Watts, Ryan Murphy, Treat Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Ryan Murphy is back with his biggest cast to date in FEUD: Capote Vs. The Swans.

Acclaimed writer Truman Capote (Tom Hollander) surrounded himself with a coterie of society’s most elite women – rich, glamorous socialites who defined a bygone era of high society New York – whom he nicknamed “the swans.” Beautiful and distinguished, the group included grande dame Barbara “Babe” Paley (Naomi Watts), Slim Keith (Diane Lane), C.Z. Guest (Chloë Sevigny) and Lee Radziwill (Calista Flockhart). Enchanted and captivated by these doyennes, Capote ingratiated himself into their lives, befriending them and becoming their confidante, only to ultimately betray them by writing a thinly veiled fictionalization of their lives, exposing their most intimate secrets. When an excerpt from the book, Answered Prayers, Capote’s planned magnum opus, was published in Esquire, it effectively destroyed his relationship with his swans, banished him from the high society he so loved and sent him into a spiral of self-destruction from which he would ultimately never recover.

I have a feeling the behind-the-scenes on this series were better than anything that the Swans could’ve dreamed of.

Feud debuts on January 31st on FX. Are you going to watch? I am watching just for the late Treat Williams.


RIP Treat Williams
June 12th, 2023 under Obits, Treat Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Treat Williams passed away today in Dorset, Vermont, at the age of 71, after his motorcycle was cut off by a driver making a turn.

His wife, Pam, and their two children, Gil and Ellie, released this statement to Deadline: “It is with great sadness that we report that our beloved Treat Williams has passed away tonight in Dorset, Vermont, after a fatal motorcycle accident. As you can imagine, we are shocked and greatly bereaved at this time.

“Treat was full of love for his family, for his life and for his craft, and was truly at the top of his game in all of it. It is all so shocking right now, but please know that Treat was dearly and deeply loved and respected by his family and everyone who knew him.

“We are beyond devastated and ask that you respect our privacy as we deal with our grief. To all his fans, please know that Treat appreciated all of you and please continue to keep him in your hearts and prayers.”

Treat got his start on Broadway, so it makes sense that his breakout role would be the musical Hair in 1979. He played a hippie who was the leader of his group of friends in NYC. He was fighting the man, the establishment, and the war, and it was the war that killed his character. He gave such a performance. It is one that will never be forgotten.

Just like when he played the compassionate Dr. Andy Brown on Everwood. Along with moving to a small town after his wife died, he was raising his two children, who were missing his mother. He was doing the best he could, and we were rooting for him with every step he took. He was the type of doctor you want to look over you when you were healthy and be caring with you when you were not.

In every role that he played, he brought his one-of-a-kind presence to the screen. Whether he was playing a tough guy in The Substitute franchise, the loving dad in Chesapeake Shores, the troubled father in White Collar and Chicago Fire, politicians, or law enforcement of all levels, I could go on.

But he was a man that seemed as lovable and wonderful off-camera as he was when he was in front of it. He would share photos from his beloved Vermont home. We would see the snow-covered landscape in the winter and the beautiful grass in the summer. In fact, just two hours before we got word of his passing, he shared a video of himself mowing his lawn, happy as could be, “wishing he could bottle the scent” of freshly cut grass.

And happy is what he made me ever since I saw Hair as a little girl. I had a crush on him from that movie. And then a whole new appreciation for him with Everwood. His death hit me the hardest since Robin Williams. I never met him, but I did chat with him on the phone. I don’t know if he knew how much it meant to me.

But I hope he feels my love and the love of everyone else he touched as he is on his way to heaven. My heart also goes out to his family.

Tonight, I will be sleeping with Hair on Tubi. And tomorrow, I will watch some of his other many roles on the streaming site for free.


BTWF: Treat Williams in Deadly Hero
June 12th, 2023 under Before They Were Famous, Treat Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Before Treat Williams was a retired cop on Blue Bloods, he was a beat cop in Deadly Hero. Even without saying a word the 23-year-old said it all in that 1975 movie.


A mini Everwood reunion!
April 28th, 2023 under Treat Williams. [ Comments: none ]

It has been 20 since we got to know Treat Williams and Tom Amandes as rival doctors in the small town of Everwood.

Even though Dr. Brown and Dr. Abbott hated each other on the small screen, it was the opposite in real life. And that is why they still hang out after all of these years.

Seeing them together makes me wish we could go back to Everwood for more episodes because four seasons was not enough.


BTWF: Gabrielle Macht in Why Would I Lie?
February 10th, 2021 under Before They Were Famous, Suits, Treat Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Before Gabrielle Macht has mommy issues on Suits, he really had mommy problems in Why Would I Lie. How cute was the 7-year-old in that 1980 movie?

Treat Williams, who starred in the movie, shared a photo of him on the set with Macht back when they were filming. To see the two of them together, then click here!
