Madonna being sued over late show starts

In the summer of 2012 my friend got me box seats to Madonna’s MDNA tour.  She started the show 3 hours after start time.  I remember looking down from my comfy box seat and seeing the 100’s of people standing in the insanely expensive floor area and thinking how if I was standing for 3 hours I would be planning Madonna’s death right now.

So the moment I heard someone decided to take action I was on board.

All love the queen of pop, but get your shit together.

Nate Hollander, who filed the suit in Miami, claims that he bought three tickets for a total of $1,024.95 to see her “Madame X” tour at the Miami Beach Fillmore on Dec. 17. But months after he bought the tickets, Live Nation changed the start time of the show, making it too late for Hollander to attend, his suit said.

The breach of contract suit claims that Madonna has a reputation for starting her concerts late, and that the opening show of the “Madame X” tour started 2 1/2 hours late. Because of her consistently late start times, the suit says, Live Nation changed the official start times of subsequent shows.

Additionally, Miami-Dade county has a curfew for teens under 18, which means that teens can’t be out in public without an adult after 11 p.m. Teenaged fans who planned on attending the upcoming show without an adult now cannot go at all.

Good luck to you, Nate.

13-year-old Broadway star died of asthma attack

Just the most heartbreaking news about an actress with a tremendous future in the arts.

Laurel Griggs, a 13-year-old actress known for numerous Broadway roles, died unexpectedly last Tuesday. Griggs’s grandfather, David Rivlin, confirmed the cause of death on his Facebook page writing, “My beautiful and talented granddaughter, Laurel Griggs, has passed away suddenly from a massive asthma attack.” It was reported by Page Six that Griggs died at her family’s home in New York City, and that she took medication for the condition.

Word is she had an attack at home and her father immediately called for help.

“My wife noticed that she was having trouble breathing, and she turned to me, and she said, ‘Andy, get her to the hospital right away,’ ” her father said.

Cops tried to save the teen by performing CPR in a police vehicle as they rushed her to Mount Sinai Hospital, but she died four hours later, authorities said.

I can’t imagine the agony of watching your child gasp for air.

People hate when someone offers thoughts and prayers, but it simply means you will be thinking of them. You see them and their pain and acknowledge it.  Believe it or not, that is very helpful to people greaving.

I can’t stop thinking about this family and their pain.

Andy and Elizabeth Griggs remember their daughter, Laurel, at a gathering on Sunday.

Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco sells amazing artisan home

Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco sells amazing artisan home

So in case you don’t know him, Sebastian Maniscalco is a comedian/stand up and sometimes VMA host.  He’s married to an artist named Lana Gomez who clearly had majority input on their deco-chic home.

The Beverly Grove stunner spans 4,100 square feet and has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bath.  Asking $4.5m.

That price, however, feels like it’s neglecting the fact that someone will most likely need to do a complete interior overhaul.  I mean I loooove expressive homes and god bless you if you’re strong enough to completely commit to your personal style, but it will be tricky finding a buyer with bang on taste such as this.

Love it all the same.  I mean seriously. These people had fun with this house and it would be a great place to have a party.

Dog The Bounty Hunter was suicidal after wife’s death

Dog The Bounty Hunter was suicidal after wife’s death

Like a lot of people, I was blindsided by the death of the always vivacious Beth Chapman. Wife and costar of Dog the Bounty Hunter. Real name Duane Chapman.

In the finale episode of his show “Dogs Most Wanted” he gets candid about the pain he went through following the return of her cancer in June 2019.

“I’ve only been alone as I showered and I had to run out without a towel because I can’t be alone right now. That’s when I start thinking about things. And I lay down to take a nap, and I reached over to touch something, and it was the freaking dog. I don’t realize yet psychologically that she’s gone and I’ll never, ever see her. I don’t realize that,” Chapman says.

“I just hope that I don’t live very much longer without her, because now she made the first step, she’s through the gate,” he explained.

“She paved a way for me. I want to take a g** d*** pain pill so bad. I feel like if I did something to myself right now and passed away suicidal and I got to heaven and was like, ‘Hi honey,’ and would she go, ‘You d*** a** why would you do that?’

Marilyn Monroe’s personal menorah goes to auction

Marilyn Monroe’s personal menorah goes to auction

So you want to start collecting Hollywood memorabilia and you don’t know where to begin.  I’ve got you covered.

Just last week a load of Monroe dresses from her most iconic roles were sold at an auction and prove the desire for the blonde beauty hasn’t wained.  Bringing in more than $800,000!  So ok, you missed that auction.  On to the next one.

Coming to auction house Kestenbaum & Co. on Nov. 7 in New York… Marilyn menorah!

Here’s the story. Marilyn converted to Judaism back when she married playwright, Arthur Miller.  The menorah was then a gift from his parents to say thank you for embracing their religion.  The brass-plated candelabra has a wind-up mechanism at its base that plays Israel’s national anthem.

The two divorced in 1961 (a year before her death) and the menorah went to storage. Who pulled it out is not know. Not to me anyway.

Estimates for the sale of the item is between $100 – $150,000.   Btw, this auction is not one of Hollywood items, but rather Judaica.   Happy bidding!

Rosie O’Donnell and fiancée split

Rosie O’Donnell and fiancée split

When Rosie O loves, she loves hard.  So I’m sure she’s heartbroken over the demise of her 2 year relationship with Elizabeth Rooney.

Multiple sources confirmed to Radar Online that the two women split, noting the 57-year-old hasn’t mention Rooney “in a while.”

O’Donnell was quick to shut down speculation about her relationship while chatting with Us Weekly at the New York premiere of The Sound Inside on October 17. “No, no there are none. No wedding plans,” she said when asked if she and the 34-year-old police officer had started planning their nuptials.

And while the sources cited aren’t always reputable, there is one sign they have things right on the money.  Rooney has deleted all photos of O’Donnell off of her Instagram and no longer follows the former The View cohost.  Yikes.

Rosie still follows Rooney but has no photos of her ex on her Instagram page.

Pete Wentz sells Encino villa

Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz has been single since his 2011 split from wife Ashley Simpson.  And even though he has a lovely home, I can’t help but notice it lacks a woman’s touch. Or at least a designers.

The 4,085 square foot Spanish villa has modern rooms, rustic rooms, traditional rooms, and a heavy masculine vibe. But there’s a sweet outdoor space to chill or take a dip and plenty of TV’s.  What more do you really need?

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms – sold for $2,262,500
