We told you several months ago that principal photography was underway for this new dark romantic comedy starring Guiding Light’s Tom Pelphrey and One Life to Live’s Melissa Archer!  Well, now the film has been completed and is ready to hit some movie theatres nationwide on October 12!

The film titled, Excuse Me For Living features Pelphrey in the leading role of Daniel Topler, who is brilliant and debonair, but drug-addicted and who is saved from a suicide attempt.   In court, the judge entrusts the wisecracking young man to the care of Dr. Bernstein, an elderly psychiatrist at an upscale rehab clinic.  The doctor issues these commands: obey the no-drugs rules, and join the geriatric temple men’s group he leads – or face incarceration.  Dan meets Bernstein’s luscious daughter, Laura (Melissa Archer).  But the psychiatrist forbids them to meet again.  The thread of Dan’s struggle to seek self-redemption, capture Laura’s love,  and Bernstein’s approval weaves to the story’s surprise conclusion.

Excuse Me For Living, also features Christopher Lloyd, Wayne Knight, Jerry Stiller, Robert Vaughn, James McCaffrey, and soap favorites: Ewa De Cruz, Tonja Walker, Shenaz Treasury and David A. Gregory! Excuse Me For Living was written, directed, and produced by Ric Klass!  For more information on cities and locations on where you can see Excuse Me For Living click here!

I heard that Melissa Archer was under contract with Prospect Park until Jan 2013, and would not be free to do movies/TV (is in McBain’s love Natalie on GH)
goes to show; gossip is usually wrong.

As a big MA fan I can not wait to see anything she is in! This looks good! I almost feel like driving the 4hrs to chicago the nearest city to me where its showing to see it! Since TPTB are dumb and won’t bring her to GH and take advantage of all her fans that don’t watch that show (maybe soon if the PP thing is true) she just has so much hyper energy on screen she diffenatly won’t put you to sleep unlike some other that shall not be named!!!!

Defintely going to see this on October 12th when it comes out! Congrats to Melissa Archer, the movie looks fun and she looks so beautiful! Hope she and Tom Pelphrey are a hit, they look wonderful together and make it big on the big screen. I loved her as Natalie on OLTL and with John but since the TPTB were too dumb not to bring her to GH, I’m happy she is moving in this better direction. When do her other movies she did come out? Best of luck to her!

Never knew if she, or McBain, could act. McBain was always looking at Natalie’s boobs, as all audience memeber were. Should be a great movie if she wears the same low cut tops.

I’ve waited forever for Melissa and Tom to paired together and despite my extended anticipation…it’s crystal clear that EMFL won’t disappoint. It looks like tons of nothing but sweet hilarity and delicious fun. Melissa is stunning and Tom is rakishly adorbs. Congrats to all involved. This looks like a winner! Thanks for sharing Michael 🙂

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.
