Y&R and Criminal Minds Star Shemar Moore Has Over $60,000 Stolen From Him By Former Guest-Star Turned Business Partner!

The Young and the Restless Daytime Emmy-winning Shemar Moore (Ex-Malcolm), who went on to star for 11 seasons on Criminal Minds as Derek Morgan was in a courtroom in San Fernando, California on Wednesday of this week.  It all happened because of an actor who guest-starred on two episodes of the CBS procedural drama back in 2013, who pleaded no contest to charges that he stole more than $60, 000 from Mooore! According to the L.A Times: actor Keith Tisdell, 42, agreed to repay Moore, 46, the sum of $61,084.

Prosecutors charged that Tisdell took the money after he befriended Moore when they appeared in the same Season 8 episode. Tisdell was playing a character named Rodney Harrison. Shemar told the judge ahead of the sentencing of Tisdell that, “In bringing that story to life, we became friends. … We went into business together.”

That business Moore is referring to is none other than Shemar’s famous Baby Girl LLC, which sprung out of Moore’s favorite catch-phrase on Criminal Minds,  “Baby girl”.   However, Baby Girl LLC was started as a charity to help battle multiple sclerosis, a disease from which his mother suffered.  Tisdell was involved with the organization. Records show he was arrested on suspicion of embezzlement in January but ultimately admitted to grand theft.

During their friendship, Moore said he bought Tisdell $10,000 rims for his car, funded shared overseas vacations and gave him up to $20,000 to help with expenses. When an audit revealed cash from the organization was missing, Moore confronted Tisdell, who denied stealing the money, the actor said in court.

Shemar went on to say before the sentencing: “I’ve done a lot for him because he had me, my friends fooled.  I’m not here for money. I’m here because he betrayed a friendship. This is not OK. You don’t do this to people.”   In the end, Tisdell’s attorney gave Moore $5,000 worth of money orders. Tisdell has to repay about $56,000 in the near future,  or he could end up in jail.

What do you think about Moore being swindled by his friend and business partner? Do we all need to heed the warning and be much more careful in who we trust in our lives?  And on a side note: do you hope Shemar will come back home to Y&R somehow, someway in the near future?  Share your thoughts below!

That’s an odd theft, Jimmy! The thief must’ve wanted the shoes for their own dolls or he or she has an even odder foot fetish!

Oh, my, Jimmy. I still have my Barbies. None of them has shoes. That’s quite a feat, my friend. How did your daughter manage to hold on to those tiny little shoes? Mine always got stuck in the vacuum cleaner….Shoes are typically first to go missing on Barbies. LOL.
I’m with 4ever. Weird thief with a Barbie foot fetish.
Poor Shemar!!!! That’s a bummer….not so much the theft ; but being betrayed by a friend. WOW!! We live and learn. Be more visceral in judging people, maybe?

My God—I feel so bad for Shemar. Nobody deserves this and how he got trampled on is a crying shame. I have had the same done to me but not to the extreme that was done to Shemar. I am glad he will have some closure to this I hope.

As far as I’m concerned, that Keith Tisdell clown is nothing but an embezzler and a con artist.

Just saying……….

It’s a shame. Glad Shemar took him to court. It is not okay to do that. Shemar did a lot for him, was a very generous friend, and Tisdell took advantage of that.

How long does he have to repay the money? I doubt he’ll be getting other acting jobs.

I don’t see any of these comments indicating what you’re suggesting, pat. You must be referring to comments on other sites or your friend, family and neighbors. Maybe people think that because there isn’t much documented dating history between Shemar and women. Or is it because he so easily trusted a man with so much of his money? Could it be because he’s been seen with the thief many times at different places? Possibly the concern is Shemar paid the man’s living expenses and had shared vacations together? For whatever reasons you or others have for suspecting him of possibly… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
