Anne Heche’s Son, Homer Laffoon, Shares Update on the Release of Her Posthumous Memoir, ‘Call Me Anne’

In a very touching post on Anne Heche’s (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) Instagram account, her oldest son, Homer Laffoon, 20, opened up about the decision to publish his mother’s memoir, Call Me Anne.  The actress had been working on the book prior to her tragic death.

Heche died back in August of 2022, following a harrowing and fiery car crash into a home that left her with a severe anoxic brain injury.  She was eventually taken off life-support. Anne was only 53-years-old.

On Thursday night, Homer, who was made the general adminstrator of Heche’s estate (much to the chagrin of her ex, James Tupper) shared a deeply personal message on the upcoming release of Call Me Anne on January 24th.  The memoir is a sequel to Heche’s 2001 memoir, Call Me Crazy which was about her rise to fame.

Homer shared this message: “Hi Everybody,  Homer here. Never imagined I’d find myself responsible for mom’s IG account, but here we are. First things first, from August to now, the amount of love, care and support shown by those on social media and IRL has been overwhelming and blessedly received – thank you. One day at a time is working for me as I’m sure the healing journey will be a long one.  Your good thoughts and well wishes will continue to comfort me on my path.  But this is my mom’s account so enough about me. I have a responsibility to share with her community what she was working on and how excited she would have been to tell you herself.

My mom had a completed manuscript for a second book at the time of her passing. The book is the product of mom’s further efforts to share her story and to help others where she could. Call Me Anne is the result and I know she was excited to share with the world. So, mom, here I am sharing it with the community you created, may it flourish and take on a life of its own, as you would have wanted.  For those in Los Angeles, there will be a special event at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove. I know mom would want to see everyone’s smiling face as she read an excerpt and signed copies.   I don’t plan on using this platform too often but know she loved her fans, loved writing (she wrote endlessly) and it would not feel right not to reach out at a time like this.  As mom liked to sign off,  Peace and love, Homer”

The Los Angeles book release event Homer mentioned will be at the Barnes and Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles on January 24th at 7PM.  Heche’s publicist and podcast partner, Heather Duffy will conduct a reading/signing which will include several celebrity goodbye messages as a tribute to Heche.

So, what did you think of Homer’s heartfelt message about his mother’s final memoir?  Will you be getting a copy when its released? Comment below.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
