The self-proclaimed “Architect of Rock and Roll” Little Richard has died, according to a report form The Rolling Stone on Saturday morning.  Little Richard was 87-years-old .  His son,, Danny Jones Penniman, confirmed his passing, citing that cancer was the cause of death.

Little Richard was known as one of the founding fathers of Rock and Roll.  His hits ranged from Tutti Frutti” in 1956, “Long Tall Sally” and “Rip It Up” that same year, “Lucille” in 1957, and “Good Golly Miss Molly” in 1958.   He was one of the fist ten original inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

His flamboyant style was often the center of much speculation and early in his career he did not publicly come out.  Later in life, he described himself as an “omnisexual,” attracted to both men and women, but that became complicated when he later denounced the gay and transgender “lifestyle” in an interview in 2017.

The popular musician also made key appearances on the soaps!  He is most remembered for not only presiding over, but performing, at the long-awaited first wedding of One Life to Live’s Bo (Robert S. Woods) and Nora (Hillary B. Smith) back in 1995.  After they had gathered together their friends and family for their nuptials, they were about to call it off until a surprise guest appeared in the form of their very favorite … Little Richard!   When he appeared in front of them, Bo and Nora knew it was the right time to tie the knot!

Then in 1997, Little Richard performed at the wedding of The Young and the Restless ‘Gloria (Judith Chapman) and Jeffrey (Ted Shackleford).

Little Richard was loud, flamboyant, and very entertaining #SHUTUP LOL R.I.P. I also remember Hank Gannon and the actor Nathan Purdee being involved in some type of racy photo shoot with younger actors from OLTL, and some of them losing their jobs because of it.

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.
