Don Imus, Radio Host’, Dies at 79

Just over the AP wire:

Legendary, cowboy hat-wearing radio personality Don Imus, who hosted the radio show Imus in the Morning for nearly 50 years, has died. Imus was 79.

Imus passed away on Friday morning at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in College Station, Texas, after being hospitalized on Christmas Eve, a representative said. The cause of death was not given.

“Don loved and adored Deirdre, who unconditionally loved him back, loved spending his time watching Wyatt become a highly skilled, champion rodeo rider and calf roper, and loved and supported Zachary, who first met the Imus family at age 10 when he participated in the Imus Ranch program for kids with cancer, having battled and overcome leukemia, eventually becoming a member of the Imus family and Don and Deirdre’s second son,” Imus’ family said in a statement.

Imus is survived by his wife of 25 years, Deirdre, sons Wyatt and Lt. Zachary Don Cates and daughters Nadine, Ashley, Elizabeth and Toni.

A small service for Imus will be held in the next few days. The family requests that any donations be made to the Imus Ranch Foundation, which supports charities for children with cancer and other major illnesses.

Under Greek law, honorary naturalization may be granted to people “who have provided exceptional services to the country or whose naturalization serves the public interest.”

Ryan Phillippe claps back at critics of his paid promoting of Saudi Arabia

Ryan Phillippe has aggressively defended Saudi Arabia as he and other celebrities face fierce backlash for attending a music festival in the country – as some accused them of being ‘shameless’ and accepting six-figure sums to help rehabilitate the country’s image.

A bevy of stars have been slammed since they started inundating social media with photos of themselves attending the MDL Beast music festival in Riyadh over the weekend without mentioning the country’s controversial human rights record.

The likes of Sofia Richie, Winnie Harlow, Alessandra Ambrosio, Joan Smalls, Irina Shayk , Stella Maxwell, Luka Sabbat, Armie Hammer, Scott Disick and Phillippe all shared multiple photos in recent days that were tagged in Riyadh.

While the majority have not responded to the backlash, Phillippe has been lashing out at people commenting on his Instagram posts.

‘Things are changing, hopefully you do too sh*thead,’ he wrote to one person.

He said to another: ‘It’s changing moron. Have you been? I’d love to take any woman important to me. F**k off.

‘1st of all I’m traveling many places in the mid east. 2nd, find me a country without issues, i’ll wait. 3rd things are changing and progressing rapidly in KSA and the people are lovely. pay better attention and quit virtue signalling princess.’

Sofia Vergara replacing Gabrielle Union on ‘AGT’?

Sofia Vergara replacing Gabrielle Union on ‘AGT’?

Sofia Vergara is currently finishing the last season of “Modern Family” but it sounds like she might already have her next job in the wings as Gabrielle Union‘s replacement on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

Sofia sat down for a meeting with “AGT” execs this week to discuss filling the seat left empty by Union, also who had a “productive” meeting of her own with NBC following the star-making complaints of workplace discrimination, which she believes ultimately led to her dismissal.  It actually surprises me Sofia would take the job if these accusations are floating around out there.

Sources at TMZ claim the Sofia was 20 minutes late for her meeting with NBC president Paul Telegdy and “AGT” production company, Fremantle. They didn’t hold her tardiness against her, however, going on to discuss not only the reality competition show, but other potential opportunities with the network, including a new drama series and or possible Spanish-language show on NBC owned network Telemundo.

Dove Cameron gets anti-gun tattoo in honor of Cameron Boyce

Dove Cameron gets anti-gun tattoo in honor of Cameron Boyce

If you have kids or were a kid in the last decade, you likely know who Dove Cameron and Cameron Boyce are.  They were the stars of the insanely popular Descendants movies on Disney Channel.  Not to mention they each had starring roles in Disney shows of there own.

This past July, Boyce died in his sleep from a seizure and Dove Cameron is making sure she always remembers him.

In a video for Vogue, the star took viewers with her when she went to get a tattoo of a gun with a flower in it.  Which Cameron describes as “sort of a nationally recognized symbol for peace and anti-gun movements.”

Cameron explains that before the younger actor’s death, he’d created an organization called Wielding Peace — now run by the Cameron Boyce Foundation — which uses photographs as a means for advocating the end of gun violence. In one portrait for the project, Boyce holds a bouquet of flowers.

“It was really beautiful, and I’ve been trying to think of a tattoo to get for him since he passed,” Cameron said, “and I just felt that this one was really appropriate.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine sentenced to 2 years

Tekashi 6ix9ine sentenced to 2 years

It’s clear snitching paid off for the disgraced rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine.  Or does it? I guess it’s how you look at it.

After singing to the feds and giving the names of a number of Bloods gang members a Manhattan federal court judge Paul Engelmayer ordered the 23-year-old rapper to serve 24 months for his role in the Nine Trey Gansta Bloods — as he bashed him over the “lives put at risk because you had been dissed” while running with the street crew.

The hip hop provocateur had begged the judge for mercy but appeared rattled in court by the presence of his estranged father, whom he hasn’t seen since he was 9 years old.

“Is this a f–king joke, [with] everything that I go through?” a shaking Tekashi asked after spotting his 58-year-old dad, who is also named Daniel Hernandez.

Before the sentence was handed down, his father raised his hand from the gallery to speak on behalf of his long-lost son, but was forcefully shot down by the judge.

“It’s way too late to show up and speak on his behalf. You squandered that right many years ago,” Engelmayer told the elder Hernandez. Daaaammmnnnnn!
