I adored Sally Kellerman. She may not have had the movie career she deserved but was an accomplished singer and a fun, lovable personality. She also wrote a terrific autobiography, “READ MY LIPS”. She was part of the wonderful New Hollywood that sprang up in 1967 and dominated the movies until the late 70s. Her peers Barbra Streisand, Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Julie Christie, Ellen Burstyn, and many others helped make that Hollywood’s true modern Golden Era. We won’t see those days again. Rest in peace, Margaret Houlihan.

Hi Soaphound-
Mash was before my viewing time.
It aired 1972 to 1983 – 11 years. (google lol)
I have seen some reruns, there are many, and it was very good..
It had to be a must see back then.
Popcorn night-
I did see hot lips, I recall her–
We are all on deaths waiting list.
It’s always the same goodbye = RIP

Su000, Sally Kellerman was actually only in the original movie “M*A*S*H*”; her character was played by Loretta Swit in the series. If you get a chance, rent (or stream..I never know what’s what) the original movie and see what you think. It was way ahead of its time in 1970 and still holds up. Sally was nominated as Best Supporting Actress but lost to legendary Helen Hayes in “AIRPORT”. Director Robert Altman went on to helm one of my Top 5 movies, “NASHVILLE” from 1975.

Sad news! A great actress through the years but my favorite was her role as a sexy English professor in 1986’s Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield. I can still hear her voice. The movie grossed over $90M. Thanks for the laughs!

She also starred in the second “Star Trek” pilot, the one that sold the series, and she was dynamite!

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.
