Huffington Post - 5 months
During the second presidential debate on Sunday night, celebrities took to Twitter to share their thoughts on everything from Donald Trump to Donald Trump to Donald Trump.  After the fallout from the release of that lewd video, it was hard to watch Trump discuss “locker room talk” in the same breath as “I respect women” ― and celebrities agreed.   Here are some of the things they had to say while the debate was going on: #NeverTrump pic.twitter.com/zzGBzaZuWx — Emily VanCamp (@EmilyVanCamp) October 10, 2016 The slight swaying in place -- is Trump drugged? This has a Dayquil/Xanax feel. He's certainly not answering the question. #debates — Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) October 10, 2016 I feel as if Trump just turned to dust right now, no one would really be that surprised. — scott foley (@scottkfoley) October 10, 2016 I have NEVER been prouder to stand WITH HER. — Emmy Rossum (@emmyrossum) October 10, 2016 ...

'Downton Abbey' Stars Speak In American Accents, Lose Their Cool
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Let's hope the dowager doesn't hear this! On Thursday night's episode of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Michelle Dockery, Allen Leech and Hugh Bonneville of "Downton Abbey" stopped by to discuss the final season of their beloved PBS (or ITV, if you're in the U.K.) show.  While Colbert tried to explain while the show was so darn appealing to Americans, he offered the stars an acting challenge.  "I think one of the things that I suspect makes the show so alluring and seem somewhat like a fairy tale to us in the United States is just how plummy all your accents are," said Colbert to the actors. "We hear the accent and think of it as very classy. So, I'd like to try an experiment right now, if you don't mind. Can you guys try an American accent for me?"   Watch their hilarious attempt at being American below:  They sound so ... normal! (At least, to us on this side of the pond.)  It's a little sad, because we prefer the posh British accents that m ...

Sandra Bullock Will Reportedly Star In All-Female 'Ocean's Eleven' Reboot
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Sandra Bullock is stepping in for George Clooney yet again.  The Playlist reports that the actress will star in an all-female revival of the "Ocean's Eleven" series, to be directed by "Seabiscuit" helmer Gary Ross and written by Olivia Milch.  Bullock will reportedly play the ringleader of a heist team, as Clooney did in Steven Soderbergh's trilogy and Frank Sinatra did in the original 1960 movie upon which 2000s franchise was based. Her starring role as a crisis manager in "Our Brand Is Crisis," which was released Friday, was originally written for Clooney, but he ended up producing the movie instead.  Clooney's "Ocean's" trilogy grossed over a billion dollars worldwide, but was notably short on female cast members. Julia Roberts played Clooney's gallerist ex-wife Tess in the first two movies, while Catherine Zeta-Jones and Ellen Barkin had big roles in the second and third movies respectively, but that's pretty much it. All 11 of the titular con men from the first movie we ...

Samantha Perelman Should Say No to a Bully -- Even If It's Her Father
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I want to know how Samantha Perelman sleeps at night. Does she toss and turn and feel a tad guilty that she allowed her billionaire father to unleash an epic frivolous battle against her dead mother's family? After all, in society columnist Claudia Cohen's will, she specifically begged that her ex-husband Ronald Perelman "preserve" these family relationships that she wrote, no boldly wrote in big splashy capital letters, "are EXTREMELY important to me." Now in a Hackensack, New Jersey courtroom, 23 year-old Samantha Perelman will take the stand Monday and attempt to defend why a billionaire's daughter who virtually holds a key to Fort Knox allowed her father for five years to knock down and sucker punch her ailing wheelchair bound grandfather in an attempt to grab a larger share of his estate and make as Robert Cohen said in an affidavit, "the remaining years of my life as unbearable as possible." However, unbearable didn't mean beatable. As Fortune Magazine's James Bandler r ...

Rings around the rosy, the SF diamond rush
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
Gawkers and connoisseurs of gems, their faces bearing expressions of utmost seriousness, were pressed around the display cases soaking up the audio tour and pondering at once the art of jewelry making and the very related craft of money making. Much of the jewelry that was on loan was labeled, simply, "private collection," with a few notable exceptions, including pieces from the Elizabeth Taylor estate, pieces owned by actress Jennifer Tilly, pieces that had once belonged to Ellen Barkin and pieces owned by museum board President Dede Wilsey. Guests were asked to make donations to Friends of Faith - a fund named in honor of the late newswoman Faith Fancher - to help victims of breast cancer. Brooks-Moon, recently coming back from a leg injury, sat on a huge white throne and watched with a big grin as Brown stepped up to the plate, making an irresistible pitch for guests to "show him the green." -- At Thursday's Stars on Staff fundraiser for Music in Schools Today, Gregg Perloff of ...
