Yahoo News - about 2 months
For a lot of us, famous and normals alike, 2016 was a narrative we would like to be excluded from and that we never asked to be a part of.  But if nothing else, it was a great year for celebrity gossip. Thanks to social media, egos and impulse control had a banner year — for better and most certainly for worse. Here are the best celebrity feuds of a very petty year. 6. Selena Gomez vs. Justin Bieber Image: darren calabres/AP Jelena is over, but the wounds haven't healed. Gomez defended Beliebers that were upset by a series of photos Bieber Instagrammed of his girl of the moment, Sofia Richie, commenting, "If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol."

Blake Shelton May Or May Not Be Voting For Donald Trump
Huffington Post - 7 months
Will he or won’t he?  Blake Shelton shared some political thoughts for his cover story interview with Billboard for the magazine’s 2016 “Nashville” issue ― which features the headline “Make America Blake Again,” a play on Donald Trump’s slogan ― and it sure sounds like “The Voice” coach just might be voting for Trump at the polls in November.  “In country music, we’re so politically correct and so afraid to possibly upset someone,” he said.  “I’m not going to have the political conversation with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, but I will tell you this: Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t always have to be so afraid,” he continued. “A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don’t like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who’s crazy here? I probably wish there was another option, but there’s not.” If Shelton does wind up voting for Trump ...

Why Barbra Streisand Is The World's Last Great Superstar
Huffington Post - about 2 years
"Oh, dear -- I'm not wearing the right shoes for this!" were the first words Barbra Streisand ever said to me. And I fell in love, as I knew I would. Exactly 10 years ago I was one of two "civilians" invited to One&Only Palmilla, the luxury resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, to help surprise John Travolta for his 50th birthday with a weekend-long celebration that had megawatt co-hosts Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise and Barbra Streisand leading the celebrity-filled festivities. The resort welcomed Tony Bennett, Sean Penn, Meg Ryan, Robin Williams, Sylvester Stallone (whom I overheard ask a bartender "How do you say 'tequila' in Spanish?"), Kirstie Alley, Quincy Jones, Natalie Cole, Gayle King (the best airplane companion and dance partner), Carly Simon, Cal Ripken, Jr., Buzz Aldrin, Laura Dern, Forest Whitaker and on and on and on -- an impossibly dense galaxy of superstars -- and me. It was quite the weekend. At the culmination of the remarkable activities was an all-star concert (To ...

'Kirstie' review: Alley sticks to tried and true
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
Kirstie Alley's new sitcom, premiering Wednesday, is fairly standard fare for TV Land, which has done quite well finding continued work for cast members of fondly remembered sitcoms of the past. The comedy is predictable on every level, which is part of the TV Land formula. Because the channel trades on recycling actors, it's sure not going to obviate its efforts by asking the actors to, you know, act. [...] this is Richards' return to series TV after that little onstage meltdown captured in all its racist ignominy on cell phone video. [...] it doesn't feel coincidental that Perlman's character is named Thelma, because she has always been a later generation's reincarnation of the great character actress Thelma Ritter.
