There’s some sad news coming from the Baldwin house today, and if it were any other day, the sad news might be that Alec Baldwin spent a whole day outside and didn’t once have the urge to yell at an SUV driver with New Jersey plates. But today is today, and the news is that his wife Hilaria Baldwin has suffered her second miscarriage this year.
The Whitney Houston Estate has giant, bloody calluses on their hands from vigorously milking coin after coin from her memory. Well, now it’s someone else’s turn to make a check off of Whitney’s memory. Enter: Robyn Crawford. Anybody who is even vaguely familiar with the life of Whitney Houston knows who Robyn Crawford is. Robyn was Whitney’s best friend since childhood, and it was long rumored that they were girlfriends. The Whitney documentary confirmed that, and now Robyn has confirmed it while telling her story in her memoir A Check For Me Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston.
I’ve been a ride or die fan of Survivor since day one when Rudy Boesch took one look at Richard Hatch’s sunburnt naked ass and muttered, “What in the hell is this?” A star was born that day, and sadly, People reports that that star has died. The former Navy seal and crotchety legend has died at the age of 91 after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
If you look up at the sky tonight and notice a particularly bright star that is shining something extravagant and causing you to pucker yourself raw, that’s the gloriously spectacular icon Walter Mercado who has returned to his homeland of the universe above us to continue to sparkle like he did on this planet. Earth is now much, much less brighter and opulent, because universal treasure Walter Mercado is no longer here. He was 87.
The Hollywood Reporter delivered the sad, very un-celebratory news that the campy confetti-tossing ball of joy known as Rip Taylor has died at the age of 84. Rip’s publicist confirmed the news yesterday that he passed. No cause of death was given, but Rip’s publicist said that he had a seizure and died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. This also means that we now live in a world completely devoid of legendary Rips, as Rip Torn left us only three months ago.
Pour out a Baccarat flute of burned champagne… Actually, you should pour it out anyway, because if it’s not good enough for the master of taste Dominique Deveraux, it shouldn’t be good enough for you.
A wave of sadness hit me today in the form of the news that trailblazing icon Diahann Carroll died at her home in Los Angeles this morning. She was 84.
