The Young and the Restless star Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) and his ex-wife Mia are in the news again regarding the tragic events of the death of their son Julian back in November of 2014.   According to TMZ, St. John is suing the facility where his son committed suicide – La Casa Psychiatric Health Facility in Long Beach, CA -for giving Julian access to the plastic bag he used to kill himself.

One of the key reasons St. John is filing the suit is that the actor claims that Julian did the exact same thing less than 3 weeks before his death when he attempted to asphyxiate himself with a trash bag from his room.  In the wrongful death suit, Kristoff says after that failed attempt the hospital never removed the trash bags from his room.

Even more upsetting is Kristoff revealed in his claim: that there is evidence of the nurses falsifying records and that Julian was supposed to be checked on every 15 minutes because he was a high suicide risk, but records show reveal that checks never happened on time.

Kristoff feels the hospital was completely negligent and stated that had the staff acted with even the slighted regard for Julian’s safety, “he would still be alive today.”

In addition after the jump, watch Kristoff and Mia on Tuesday’s night edition of Entertainment Tonight talking about the lawsuit with ET host Kevin Frazier.  Then, share your thoughts on this developing story below as Kristoff seeks justice for his son Julian.

We had to watch my father in laws care twenty four seven ! Sorry but this is the way of the world today unless you keep them in your home or on top of it twenty four seven this is what happens. I am very sorry for your loss but this facility had a terrible reputation! It is a terrible burden on families who deal with mental illness unless you go thru it you have no idea what is going on!

I agree the substitute..no matter how much you watch and love and give..a loved one could be anywhere..even home..and if they want to go..they find a way to..even fifteen minutes can be too late..removing all objects yet letting other patients have said objects the person knows..it’s heartbreaking but in situations of mental health..there is no blame to be laid…I hope Kristoff realizes he didn’t fail his son…mental health is not parental failure..it’s just a fact of life.

Hi, Aria.
I watched the segment also. And, there I was, crying along with them. Everyone feels their pain. No one wants to experience that anguish….that vise around one’s heart.

But, for those of us who have lost a child, for whatever reason, the pain is not only felt, but also shared. We identify with it. Each time I hear anything even close to this kind of tragedy, my wound opens a little wider.
We may put a band-aid on it….but, the wound never heals.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Star Colton Underwood Shares More Details on His Decision to Come Out Including Being Blackmailed

Last month, Colton Underwood came out publicly in a sit-down interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

The former lead of ‘The Bachelor’, Underwood’s announcement was met with some harsh criticism since he was already prepping a reality show about it for Netflix.

However, in a new feature with Variety, Colton shares what finally led him to reveal his truth: “I, at one point, during my rock bottom and spiral, was getting blackmailed. Nobody knows I was blackmailed.”

In his conversation, Underwood shared that while in LA he visited a spa known for a gay clientele.  Shortly thereafter, he received an anonymous email from someone claiming to have taken nude photos of him at the venue. Underwood never saw the alleged photos and explains he was at the spa “just to look,” saying he “should have never been there.”

The unidentified blackmailer threatened to “out” him in the press, and in a panic, Underwood forwarded the email to his publicist, which forced him to finally have an honest conversation about his sexual orientation, and a reckoning, of sorts.

Adding to all of this, Underwood’s relationship with his ex Cassie Randolph has also been under fire, where in court documents she filed a restraining order, alleging that he stalked her and placed a tracking device on her car.

Due to a joint agreement with Randolph, Underwood is limited in what he can say to the press. But in the interview with Variety, he shared he wants to clear the air, because he’s seen the word “abuse” attached to previous reports on their relationship situation.  Colton expressed, “I did not physically touch or physically abuse Cassie in any way, shape or form.”

Randolph broke up with Underwood he shares, and that he was in “such a dark place” because he knew that this would be his last straight relationship and the reality hit him hard.  Underwood clarified: “If there was anything I could do to take more ownership, I would. But also, out of respect to her, I don’t want to get into the details. I want this interview to be the last time I address her, because it’s not fair for her to have her name in articles every time I talk. I’m sorry, and I want her to know that I hope she has the best, most beautiful life.”

As far as if Colton feels ABC should discuss having a gay season of The Bachelor, or if he would come back to appear as its lead, he would only say: “I think they should discuss it.  It should be a conversation. I don’t like speaking in definitives, but I’m not in a position to be in a show like that. I’m at a crossroads in my life right now.”

Watch a portion of the interview below with Colton and Variety below.  Then share your thoughts on how Underwood decided to come out via the comment section and his plans for the near-future.

Ellen DeGeneres to End Her Talk Show After Its 19 Season

Ellen DeGeneres informed her staff yesterday that she has made the decision to end her talk show after its upcoming 19th season.  She will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on the May 13th episode of the The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her decision to step away.

In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen shared: “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

The show’s end comes on the heels of all of the turmoil last summer when several former and current employees accused Ellen of fostering a toxic work environment.  As well, several key producers were let-go as a result.

 

When speaking with THR, DeGeneres said of last summer’s revelations and accusations against her: “It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. When it started, with that stupid ‘someone couldn’t look me in the eye’ or whatever the first thing was, it’s like a crest of a wave. Like, ‘This isn’t going to be that big of a wave.’ And then it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it was out of control. And I really, honestly, felt like, ‘I don’t deserve this. I don’t need this. I know who I am. I’m a good person.’  And I was sitting back going, ‘If I was someone watching this, I would think, ‘Well, there must be some truth to it because it’s not stopping.’ Of course they’re going to believe this because I’m not addressing it because I was told not to and you can imagine what that felt like. And it’s a lot to live up to. I started saying “be kind to one another” because I really believe people should be kind to one another and so it was easy clickbait to say, ‘Oh, the be kind lady isn’t so kind.’ … I am kind, I’m also a woman and I’m a boss.”

Earlier this morning, The Daily Mall UK reported that Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Brothers, were expected to make an announcement that she will end her talk show after the 2021-2022 season.  According to their sources, DeGeneres told her team she “has had enough and told her team that she’s done.”

It should be noted that the The Ellen DeGeneres Show has seen a steady decline in the ratings as well.  The ratings for total households from February 2020 to February 2021 were down 40% in New York City and Chicago; and in Los Angeles it lost 59%.

Ellen’s talk show has produced over 3,000 episodes.

So, what do you think of Ellen deciding to conclude her talk show? Comment below.
