Rita Wilson Remembers Nora Ephron In 'Variety'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Huff/Post50 editor at large Rita Wilson penned a moving tribute to her friend Nora Ephron in 'Variety' this week, one of several tributes by women to iconic leaders the industry has lost this year. In the story, Eva Longoria remembers Lupe Ontiveros; Bonnie Hunt posts a tribute to Phyllis Diller; Darnell Martin offers thoughts on Etta James; and Sherry Lansing honors Sue Mengers, among others. "[Nora Ephron's] contribution, to me, is about possibility and empowerment," writes Wilson. "She made you feel as if you could do anything. Her protagonists were strong, competent, sometimes extraordinary women that made you feel as if that was you up there on the screen, that finally someone was writing about your thoughts and feelings but saying them far more intelligently or wittily than you ever would." Check out 'Variety' for more.

A Woman Says She Spent Three Years As A Sex Slave Outside St. Louis
Business Insider - over 4 years
A woman who was recently found three years after her abduction told police she had been held captive as a sex slave since she was 16, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Thursday. The unnamed woman, who was reported missing in 2009, told police she finally escaped with the help of a relative after she had been "beaten and sexually assaulted by the suspect almost every day since she was in captivity." When police descended on the East St. Louis home they found a young child still at the residence, the Post-Dispatch reported. The abducted woman claims she was raped by the man who held her captive, and that he had eventually fathered her child. The child does not seem to be hurt and a man and a woman were arrested at the home. Connie Hunt said she lived next door to the suspects for two years and didn't notice anything wrong. "All I know is they seemed like sweet neighbors," Hunt told the Post-Dispatch. "I didn't know anything about someone being held captive. ...We didn't kno ...

Cookies From a Koz For a Good Cause
Calabasas Patch - almost 5 years
Cookies were a given in the Koz household. Pharmacist-turned-baker Audrey Koz baked chocolate chip cookies day in and day out and gave them away to family and friends. “It was her way of spreading her love,” said Audrey’s daughter, local resident Roberta Koz Wilson. Dave Koz would tote his mom’s chocolate chip cookies at every meeting and performance at the beginning of his legendary music career. After Audrey passed away in 2005, Wilson quit her corporate job and launched Cookies for a Koz. “It was the best way to carry on her legacy,” said the former MTV network executive. “Reverse engineering” was Wilson’s approach to her mom’s famous chocolate chip cookie recipe. “I put the recipe together based on what I saw and remember,” she said. Armed with her mother’s pair of magic pans, Wilson started baking and hasn’t stopped since. She said, “I feel as long as she’s watching over my shoulders telling me what to do next, I’ll be fine.” After perfecting the chocolate chip c ...

Many of the series' staffers were longtime friends of Hunt's from Chicago. The series typically started with an opening monologue followed by guest interviews and games played with the audience. Hunt's mother Alice often appeared in webcasts from her home in Chicago. A characteristic of the show was Hunt's over-the-top faux indignation at non-PG language, after which she would enjoy the double entendre-drenched material she had pretended to poo-poo. The Bonnie Hunt Show taped in Culver City, California, and was viewed in 17 of the top 20 US television markets in the United States. In its first year, The Bonnie Hunt Show was nominated for three Daytime Emmy Awards, for opening theme, hairstyle, and makeup. It won the Gracie Award for "Outstanding Talk Show" in 2009.
