Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard: "The Greatest Star of All"
Huffington Post - 14 days
A musical of outsized passions as only Andrew Lloyd Webber could compose, Sunset Boulevard trades in hyperbole. "The greatest star of all," in the words of Max, her homme d'affaires, Norma Desmond is camp drama queen extraordinaire. With Glenn Close in the role, reprising her Tony-winning performance of 22 years ago at the Palace Theater, Norma is petit as she is large. Need dominates her manipulations so acutely, only the powerhouse chops of the actress who put the word fatal in Fatal Attraction could pull off this tour de force of fragility and grand delusion. Descending a staircase on a set that also includes a 40 piece orchestra, spare enough to feature projections of old Hollywood, its streets, cars, and populace partying away, Norma Desmond is at home in a mansion of many rooms including one over the garage where Joe Gillis (Michael Xavier), a down on his luck writer comes to reside, entrapped in her web. She wants Joe to help stage a comeback, oops: she prefers return, to star ...

Charlie Rose is taking a few weeks off to undergo and recover from heart surgery, he announced Wednesday.

The Joy Of Mary Tyler Moore And 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show'
Huffington Post - 27 days
“The Mary Tyler Moore Show” is my all-time favorite television show. It is only four months younger than I am, so I was around for every episode when they first aired. I’m sure I was watching from one of my parent’s laps many a Saturday night, but my memories of watching episodes “first run” are likely limited to the sixth and seventh seasons... and particularly the very last episode. When I was that young and the show would end, I was always confused as to why my favorite characters had to go away for another week. Part of me actually didn’t like when I’d see Mary and her “date” (actually her real life husband at the time, Grant Tinker) walking in the Minneapolis dusk during the end credits and the MTM cat would “meow,” because I knew it meant no sight of Mary, Rhoda, Lou, Ted, Murray, Sue Ann, Georgette or Phyllis for another week. I liked Bob Newhart and loved Carol Burnett, but week after week, it was Mary I looked forward to the most on Saturday nights. I was only ...

Freewheeling news anchor and Oprah BFF Gayle King celebrates five years with 'CBS This Morning'
LATimes - about 2 months
For Gayle King, being Oprah Winfrey’s best friend has its privileges — and some obligations. One of them was alerting Winfrey, an avid reader, to what was happening on television. “They used to call me ‘Gayle King, Eyewitness News’ because I’d call and say, ‘Oprah, turn on the TV,  O.J. is on the...

Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel and Sunny Pawar: Celebrating Lion at The Monkey Bar
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Sunny Pawar, in case you have not yet seen this movie, is "Lion"'s secret weapon. Pint-sized and precocious, Pawar, now eight, was six when he inhabited the role of Saroo as a young boy separated from his mother in a remote area of India. When he began his acting career starring in this movie, he did not know English, but this week at a special screening of the film and dinner at The Monkey Bar, he was happy to talk about "Lion," how director Garth Davis cast him, selecting from 2000 boys, and his next movie, "Love, Sonia" co-starring Demi Moore. In short, and no pun intended, he's a natural with a big career ahead of him. I can still hear his whiskey voice. Dev Patel plays Saroo Brierley all grown up in Australia. It's a stretch because the boy is so tiny, you have to believe he becomes the tall-drink-of-water, lanky Patel, who told the story of how he worked to get this part, to overcome the opinion: "Yeah, he's the Slumdog dude. We don't want him. I get offers to play the best fri ...

2017- The Year of Collaboration!!!
Huffington Post - about 2 months
So many new businesses were started in 2016. So many of my social media friends made the leap into entrepreneurism. Whether it was starting their own company, or joining a multi-level marketing business, they made decision to leave their typical 9 to 5 to branch out on their own. Especially among African-American women who began businesses at a staggering rate. I like to call 2016 the year of the entrepreneur. We all know initially the excitement and enthusiasm of anything new keeps you going for the first few months. However after that wears off, and the reality of uncertain cash flow, delayed or cancelled meetings start to happen the feeling of concern becomes real. This happens to just about everyone, some quit and some push on pass this give up point. For those who push on pass that checkpoint I believe they have an oasis in the desert coming. The most logical step I see is to partner with a business or individual who is in line with your vision and build together. Now ...

Oprah Threw The Realest Best Friend Fashion Shade At Gayle King
Huffington Post - 3 months
A real best friend provides unconditional honesty when it comes to matters big, small, and ― in the case of Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King ― bejeweled. King got some hilariously unexpected fashion advice from her bestie after wearing a seriously festive necklace on television Wednesday. “Note Oprah sent to my [assistant] this am ‘Plz tell Gayle I’m on treadmill & it’s hard to focus w/the circus around your neck,” she captioned a photo of herself wearing the necklace in question, asking her 268,000 followers for their thoughts.  Note @oprah sent to my asst this am "plz tell Gayle I'm on treadmill & it's hard to focus w/the circus around your neck" I think she's WRONG thoughts? A photo posted by Gayle King (@gayleking) on Dec 6, 2016 at 1:01pm PST There are so many things to love about this exchange, including the visual of Winfrey pausing her treadmill mid-workout to compose this amazing note and the relatable honesty between two real friend ...

Friday Talking Points -- Trump Unshackled
Huffington Post - 4 months
Donald Trump has a new answer for why he's about to lose in a landslide. It's all a vast left-wing conspiracy. No, really. Well, he didn't actually use that term, but he did indeed go full-on conspiracy theorist at a recent rally. He blamed the Obamas, the Clintons, the world banking cabal (no dog-whistles there, right?), corporations, and anyone else he could think of. In other words, we seriously doubt Donald Trump is going to give a polite and respectful concession speech on Election Night. This is Trump, unshackled (to use his own term). Trump unchained. Trump off the leash. And it ain't pretty. This entire election has already been a rollercoaster of historic proportions. Each and every time you think: "Well, it certainly can't get much worse," it does. Over and over again. And (a frightening thought if ever there was one) we still have over three weeks to go. Last week was a textbook example of why political observers always say "a week is an eternity in politic ...

'Hey White People!' On 'The Late Show' Is The Only Racism Guide You'll Need
Huffington Post - 5 months
To heal the racial divide, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” bandleader Jon Batiste presented a star-studded PSA on Wednesday called “Hey White People!” Actor Tituss Burgess urged caucasians to stop using “racially tinged.” “What the (bleep) does that mean? Did I put on some racist makeup before I left the house?” Comic actor Kevin Hart tried to dispel a certain misconception. “You think we all meet at Oprah’s house once a month and discuss black people stuff?” He was just getting started on that. Actors Anthony Anderson, Michael K. Williams, Samuel L. Jackson, journalist Gayle King and, yes, comedian John Oliver, also contribute.

Here's Why August 28 Is Such An Important Date In Black History
Huffington Post - 5 months
Saturday was a historic day as it marked the opening of America’s first National Museum for African American History and Culture. But there’s another day in the calendar year that holds special significance in black history: August 28.  The importance of this day is highlighted in a short video produced by award-winning director Ava DuVernay, who was commissioned by the museum to create an exclusive orientation film. DuVernay, who studied African American history at UCLA and is a self-described “history buff”, spoke with CBS News’ Gayle King prior to the museum’s opening to explain some of the historic black moments that took place on August 28 across the years and why she decided to make these events the focus of her film. “On August 28, a lot of really, truly amazing things happened in African-American history,” DuVernay told King. “They all fell on this date in different years.”   The 22-minute film, which is titled “August 28th,” debuted at the museum on Satu ...
