“Somebody Feed Phil” host Phil Rosenthal dedicated his show Friday to Anthony Bourdain, who died Friday morning in France, after reacting to the chef’s death earlier on Twitter.
“I always considered him a superhero, and a direct inspiration,” the Netflix host tweeted upon awakening to the news. “In his ground breaking shows, he embodied the spirit of travel, adventure, and strove to make the world a true community.”
Rosenthal, who’s also known as executive producer of “Everybody Loves Raymond,” continued in that vein hours later at the ATX TV Festival in Austin, Texas.
The first trailer for the new incarnation of “A Star Is Born” is out, and we want to see the movie.
The film, directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Cooper and Lady Gaga, is the story of a man on the downhill slope of his career when he finds a young, undiscovered singing talent with star potential.
Kate Spade had “personal demons she was battling,” according to her husband and business partner, Andy Spade.
The designer, who took her own life Tuesday at age 55, was seeing a doctor regularly and being treated for depression and anxiety, Andy Spade said in a statement Wednesday obtained by the Associated Press.
“There was no indication and no warning that she would do this,” he said. “It was a complete shock.” She had sounded happy the night before, he said.
Brendan Fraser says the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. rejected his sexual harassment claim and tried to get him to sign a statement agreeing that he was groped by the organization’s former president Philip Berk in 2003 as a joke.
In the new issue of GQ magazine, the actor says he spoke with an independent investigator in April, which the foreign press group confirmed Wednesday.
The HFPA, Fraser told GQ, then contacted him about signing a joint statement saying that the investigation found that Berk touched Fraser inappropriately but “the evidence supports that it was intended to be taken as a joke and not as a sexual advance."
