Today, December 1st is World AIDS Day.  Each year it as an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.

Globally an estimated 34 million people have HIV.  More than 35 million people have died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.   There is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.

So many of our favorite daytime stars past and present have rallied for the cause and been active in the fight against HIV/AIDS , but perhaps no one has been more involved with the LGBT movement and need for equality and the fight against AIDS than former One Life to Live and Dallas star, and current cast member of Amazon Prime’s amazing series, Transparent, Daytime Emmy and Tony winning actress Judith Light.

Today on this important day, Judith sent out this tweet:  “2day is World Aids Day.  So we connect 2 the whole world & recognize that we r 1 humanity.  Our hearts resonate w/ remembrance of those lost.”

Share your thoughts on” World AIDS Day, those who you have loved whose lives were cut short, and Judith’s powerful messaged tweet in the comment section below!

The number of people who have died from AIDS is the roughly the entire population of Canada. Imagine if all of the citizens of Canada were to disappear overnight– the world would noticed. However, those who died from AIDS did not die on mass, but one by one, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, children, slipped away, noticed only by those who loved them. We cannot afford to become complacence until a cure is found, so I applaud those who make the effort to keep this issue in the minds and hearts of everyone.

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

George Kennedy,  the Oscar-winning star of 1967’s Cool Hand Luke, which also starred Paul Newman has died at age 91, his grandson, Cory Schenkel confirmed.

Kennedy died in his sleep at his Boise, Idaho home early Sunday morning, the day of the Academy Awards.  He had been in failing health ever since his wife Joan died a little over a year ago. George had been under hospice care for the past month.

In the soaps, Kennedy is most remembered for his guest stints on The Young and the Restless playing Victor Newman’s despicable father, Albert Miller.  Kennedy first played the role in 2003 and then reprised it again in 2010.   Victor’s relationship with his father gave Eric Braeden some of the finest material of his career as the complex Victor.  Albert had abandoned his family, causing his son to be raised in an orphanage.

CBS original primetime soap Dallas also featured Kennedy as Carter McKay, one of the Ewing families bitter enemies from 1988 to 1991.  Geroge also played the role in two follow-up TV movies, 1996’s Dallas: J.R. Returns and 1998’s Dallas: War of the Ewings.  In addition, Kennedy appeared in several of the 70’s major disaster films including the original Airport and several sequels, as well as in Earthquake.  In the 80’s, he would appear in The Naked Gun franchise of films along with Leslie Nielsen.
