In very sad news reported on Wednesday, The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s beloved DJ, Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, has passed away at the age of 40.

According to a rep, TMZ, and Boss’ wife, Allison Holker Boss, he died by suicide.

The report shares that paramedics were called to a medical emergency on Tuesday morning at an L.A. Hotel.  When they arrived, they found Steve dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Stephen was a fixture on the the former syndicated talk show for nine years.  He started DJing on the ‘Ellen’ show back in 2014, and was with her until the show concluded earlier this year in May.  He later became an executive producer on the talker in 2020.

In a statement Allison Holker Boss shared: “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.  To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children.”

Stephen got his first big break in 2008 as the runner-up on So You Think You Can Dance.  Allison and Stephen actually met during the all-star season of the dance competition show in 2o10 in which they both were appearing, and were later married in 2013.  They have three children together.

Sadly, Allison and Stephen had just celebrated their 9-year anniversary this past Saturday.

Allison ended her statement, touchingly with, “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”

Ellen DeGeneres took to social media to share her grief on Stephen’s passing, expressing: “I’m heartbroken. ‘tWitch’ was pure love and light. He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart. I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children – Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”

Such sad news. I had to read the story twice, to make sure I read it correctly. On screen, he always seemed so happy. You never know what is happening in a person’s life.

I just have to say the National Suicide Hotline is useless and saves no one. Just another entity created to make jobs. I have major clinical depression and a phone number does nothing! I’m sorry that he was suffering in silence like so many of us do till there just seems no way to stop the pain. Rest well sweet prince.

This news is so shocking and sad to me. I remember watching him on SYTYCD and following his career. I was glad he was doing well. It seemed like he had a happy family life with Allison and their children. I don’t understand how he could leave them. It’s just heartbreaking. I hope his family can somehow find peace and happiness after this.

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.
