Mary Kay Letourneau dead at 58

Mary Kay Letourneau, who received national infamy after being convicted of raping her student and then later marrying him, has died at age 58, her attorney confirmed to KING 5 news.

Letourneau died of stage 4 cancer, said her attorney David Gerke, who represented her on the case.

In 1996, Letourneau, a sixth-grade teacher at Shorewood Elementary in Burien, was caught having sexual relations with Vili Fualaau, who was her student. Fualaau was 12-years-old at the time.

The two got married in 2005 just after Letourneau was released from a seven-year prison sentence for having sex with a minor. Fualaau filed for separation in 2017, and the divorce was finalized last year.

The couple had two children together, and Letourneau had children from a previous marriage.

Charlamagne Tha God getting Comedy Central talk show

Charlamagne Tha God getting Comedy Central talk show

I am a Charlamagne Tha God worshiper, long time now.  I love the whole package, from his rollercoaster relationship with Wendy Williams to his masterful scoldings in Donkey of the Day to his long adorable lashes.   But can he handle doing this much show? Radio and TV?

Comedy Central is still hammering out the details, but CTG should be hosting a weekly half-hour with a focus on current events and cultural issues. There’s no firm timetable for when it will premiere, but the goal is to get it in production by November’s election.

CTG has had several shows in the passed. He was on the show Guy Code for a bit and then hosted Charlamagne and Friends and Uncommon Sense.  All for MTV.

So we shall see. Ryan Seacrest will tell you, it’s hard to have it all, baby.

Patrick Stewart writing his memoir, I swoon

Patrick Stewart writing his memoir, I swoon

Who doesn’t love Patrick Stewart?  Who doesn’t long to be his friend or confidant?  Who will have to make due with an upcoming book in which he tells of his childhood and early career?  sigh… me.

The still-untitled memoir will detail Stewart’s his childhood in Yorkshire, England, “marked by poverty and domestic violence,” as well as his decades on the British stage before becoming a fixture to American audiences with the roles of Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Next Generation and Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series.

“The idea of writing a memoir based on my life and career has been in my mind for several years, but always the demands of work have pushed it into the background,” Stewart said in a statement. “Today there are no demands, nor is there a prediction when there might be. I am caught in the middle of shooting a new series, Star Trek: Picard, and I passionately want to see it through, but in the meantime…what? Well, I have a beautiful study in our house in Los Angeles, sunny and peaceful. I am 80 in a little over two weeks’ time. I have just treated myself to a gorgeous office chair. And… I have the time. But most importantly, I am loving what I am doing, even though I never thought I would or could.”

He’s also doing the audiobook.  I seriously usually hate when stars do that b/c they just can’t drop the “reading” cadence. You need a pro.   In this case, we got one.

SOOOooooo excited.

Ozark renewal for to end with two-part final season

Ozark renewal for to end with two-part final season


I guess it’s about the time I start watching Ozark.  I do love me some Jason Bateman.  But the end of a season means I never wait for an episode ever.

Netflix announced Tuesday that the hit series, which became more popular than ever with the well-timed March release of season 3, has been renewed for a fourth and final season. But the Byrde family will hang around a little longer than usual, considering the concluding run will be expanded to 14 episodes (as opposed to the usual 10) and be split in two parts (seven and seven). The streamer didn’t reveal a premiere date for the new episodes.

“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” showrunner Chris Mundy said in a statement. “It’s been such a great adventure for all of us — both on screen and off — so we’re thrilled to get the chance to bring it home in the most fulfilling way possible.”

Added star-director-producer Jason Bateman: “A super sized season means super sized problems for the Byrdes. I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”

Maroon 5 bassist arrested on domestic violence charges

Maroon 5 bassist arrested on domestic violence charges

Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden has been arrested on allegations of domestic violence.

The musician was booked on Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles under penal code 273.5(a) which is described as ‘willfully inflicting a traumatic injury on a spouse or cohabitant’ LAPD confirmed to Page Six.

Madden, 41, isn’t married and the identity of the alleged victim has not been given.

Madden was released from custody after posting $50,000 bail, the website reports. If convicted he faces up to six years in prison and a $6,000 fine.

A spokesperson for Maroon 5 said: ‘We are deeply devastated by this disappointing news. As we learn more, we are looking at this very seriously.

‘For now, we are allowing all of the individuals involved the space to work things through.’

It’s not the first time Madden has had a scrape with the law. He was arrested on cocaine charges in 2016.

Ne-Yo and wife back together 4 months after split

Ne-Yo and wife back together 4 months after split

Those “time apart” things couples do rarely work.  The two, or at least one, generally finds the time apart refreshing and move on.  But sometimes the love is too strong and the couple come back to one another.  Thus is the case, it seems, with Ne-Yo and wife Crystal.

Last week, the “Let Me Love You” singer, 40, opened up to The Talk about how being forced to spend more time with Renay due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown allowed them the time to work on their differences.

“The whole quarantine thing was kind of a blessing,” he said, adding that it “allowed me the time to lock back in with” his wife and kids. Ne-Yo is father to sons Roman Alexander-Raj, 2, and Shaffer Chimere Jr., 4, whom he shares with Renay, and son Mason Evan, 8½, and daughter Madilyn Grace, 9½, from a previous relationship.

In February, the artist revealed that he and Renay had decided to go their separate ways and pursue a divorce — a decision he said they’ve worked through in the months since.

“Before the quarantine happened, we were definitely talking divorce,” he said, “and the quarantine forced us to sit still, block out the noise from the world — you know the world can get very, very loud, and we tend to let the world’s opinion mean more in certain situations than it should.”

Ne-Yo said he and his wife had “uncomfortable” conversations, hashing out their problems by being “blatantly, painfully, brutally honest.” He added that those “difficult” discussions can help or hurt, but in their case, it was productive.

“We’re actually stronger now than we were before,” said Ne-Yo. “Now we feel like we can really talk to each other.”
