Driver fined $500 in crash that killed NY officer
Fox News - about 4 years
A Connecticut truck driver has been fined $500 and had his license revoked over a crash that killed a police officer on New York's Long Island Expressway. John Kaley, of New Britain, Conn., pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving stemming from the February 2011 crash that killed Nassau County Police Officer Michael Califano. The plea came after a prosecutor said it was unlikely she could win a conviction for criminally negligent homicide. Prosecutor Maureen McCormick says Kaley's flatbed truck slammed into a cruiser with its lights flashing after Califano stopped a motorist in Old Westbury. Witnesses said the truck had weaved through traffic for two miles. McCormick says prosecutors would have found it difficult to prove allegations Kaley had fallen asleep.

Kaley Cuoco Reflects On Sitcom Success, Remembers John Ritter
Huffington Post - over 4 years
NEW YORK — "I know this sounds like it's not true," says Kaley Cuoco, "but as huge as the show is, it's just part of my life – not my whole life." "The Big Bang Theory" is huge all right. Now in its sixth season (airing Thursdays on CBS at 8 p.m. EST), it reigns as TV's hottest sitcom, and now hotter than ever with an average 19 million viewers each week. As virtually every viewer knows by now, "Big Bang" centers on a gaggle of geeky Cal Tech scientists, chief among them Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki), apartment mates who, by great good sitcom fortune, live across the hall from Penny, played by Cuoco. Penny aspires to be an actress but pays the rent by waiting tables at a Cheesecake Factory. Unlike the boys, Penny is no genius. But neither is she a dumb blonde, which is key to the genius of "Big Bang." "She's obviously not book-smart," says Cuoco, "but she's street smart and good-hearted and can make fun of herself. The producers never ma ...

Video Game Characters Go To the Right
The Faster Times - over 4 years
It honestly never occurred to me before that all video game characters always head to the right. I am speaking, of course, of 2-D characters, from the 8-bit age — the age of real video-gaming, or, at least, the age when I actually played video games, which was 1985 or so. The 8-bit era was the era when we had these things called “arcades,” which were supposedly dens of iniquity, according to parents, though being a nerd, I never got in trouble in an arcade. Though you could probably buy drugs there, or something. My memories of arcades involve blowing through my entire weekly allowance in a twenty-five minute period, followed by aimless hours of standing around. I’d get dropped off with a friend or two, and then inevitably be drawn to a game that I was terrible at, such as “Q*Bert,” “Tempest,” or “Double Dragon.” I could never stick to the games I was good at: a terrible mistake. You got your quarters from the surly older dude who changed dollars into quarters. You maybe bought a ...

    FIFTIES
  • 2015
    Age 58
    In 2015, McCormick appeared in the Australian version of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!, where she lasted 42 days and was the last evictee before the finale.
    More Details Hide Details On August 30, 2016, McCormick was revealed as one of the celebrities who will compete on season 23 of Dancing with the Stars. She is partnered with professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev. McCormick recorded four albums with the Brady Bunch cast, and toured with them. In 1972, she released her first solo single with the songs "Truckin' Back to You" and "Teeny Weeny Bit (Too Long)". The following year, McCormick recorded an album with her Brady Bunch co-star Christopher Knight, a pop extended play titled Chris Knight and Maureen McCormick, which carried both duets and solo tracks. McCormick's second solo single "Little Bird", backed with "Just a Singin' Alone", had mild chart success in the western United States. McCormick later performed "Little Bird" on American Bandstand, where host Dick Clark encouraged her to follow a singing career. McCormick released another single in 1973, "Love's in the Roses", backed with "Harmonize".
  • 2008
    Age 51
    McCormick released her autobiography, Here's the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice, on October 14, 2008, with wide and sometimes controversial publicity.
    More Details Hide Details It debuted at number four on The New York Times bestseller list, where it stayed for three weeks. The book was published by HarperCollins and was acquired by Director of Creative Development Lisa Sharkey. While promoting the book, McCormick was a guest on many news and talk shows such as Access Hollywood, The Howard Stern Show, Good Day L.A., and Paula's Party. The Today Show reportedly aired an interview with McCormick about the book rather than switch to a story about the 2008 recession. McCormick said that a film would likely be made about her autobiography. McCormick had a sporadic romance with her Brady Bunch co-star Barry Williams during the original series' run. In her autobiography, McCormick wrote that her grandmother died from syphilis in a mental institution, infected by her husband, who caught it in Europe during World War I (and who committed suicide a week after his wife's death). McCormick's mother contracted syphilis in utero, and McCormick dealt with a lifelong but unfounded fear that she would also get the disease, and stated that her favorite scenes in The Brady Bunch were those that called for her to cry, since this allowed her to release feelings which she drew from those fears.
    In 2008, she became a spokesperson for Children International.
    More Details Hide Details Later that year, she joined the cast of the CMT reality show Gone Country, where she competed for a recording contract. This led to a spin-off reality series called Outsiders Inn, in which she opened a bed and breakfast in Newport, Tennessee. In March 2009, McCormick appeared on Comedy Central's roast of Larry the Cable Guy. She also reprised her role as Marcia Brady on an episode of the sitcom Scrubs as a character's dream wife.
    In 2008, McCormick published an autobiography, Here's the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice, which debuted at number four on The New York Times bestseller list and garnered significant publicity and mild controversy.
    More Details Hide Details McCormick was born in Encino, California, to Irene (née Beckman) and William McCormick, a teacher. She has three older brothers: Michael, Dennis, and Kevin. According to her biography, McCormick attended Taft High School in Woodland Hills, California.

  • 1997
    Age 40
    In 1997, she portrayed country singer Barbara Mandrell in the television biopic Get to the Heart: The Barbara Mandrell Story.
    More Details Hide Details In 2007, McCormick joined the cast of the fifth season of VH1's reality show Celebrity Fit Club, hoping to lose 30 pounds she had gained since her mother died of cancer and needing to move her disabled brother into an assisted living facility. McCormick lost 34 pounds and, in June of that year, was the individual winner of the series.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1990
    Age 33
    However, when The Bradys aired in 1990 as a revival of the original series, McCormick had just given birth to a child and was unavailable to return as Marcia, so Leah Ayres filled the role instead.
    More Details Hide Details In 2015, archive footage of McCormick as Marcia was used for an American TV commercial advertising Snickers chocolate bars. The commercial, which debuted during Super Bowl XLIX, features action film star Danny Trejo as young Marcia who (in the context of being hungry) isn't acting like herself. After eating a Snickers, Marcia appears as McCormick once again. After The Brady Bunch, McCormick made guest appearances on many television series such as Happy Days, Donny & Marie, Love Boat, Vega$, Streets of San Francisco, and Fantasy Island, along with supporting roles in The Idolmaker and B-movies such as 1979's A Vacation In Hell, Skatetown, U.S.A., and 1987's Return to Horror High. McCormick later claimed she failed to get a part as a prostitute or heroin dealer for the movie Midnight Express because she continued to be identified with her Brady Bunch role. McCormick was the first actress to play Rebecca Crane on the soap opera Passions, but she was not put on contract. She also performed in several musical stage productions during the 1980s and 1990s, portraying such characters as Wendy Darling in Peter Pan and Betty Rizzo in Grease.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1985
    Age 28
    McCormick married Michael Cummings on March 16, 1985, who had heard of The Brady Bunch but had never seen it at the time.
    More Details Hide Details They fell in love upon meeting in a church. McCormick and Cummings have one child, Natalie Michelle, born May 19, 1989. The family lives in Westlake Village, northwest of Los Angeles. After getting married, McCormick went through a series of interventions, stints in rehab, and experimental therapies. She says that treatment with psychologist Eugene Landy set her back. She began to get sober after marrying, but she still suffered from depression and paranoia. She once threatened to jump from a balcony in front of her husband. She and her husband were at first wary of medication, but McCormick has been treated with antidepressant medication such as Prozac since the 1990s. McCormick also said that she was helped by her friendships with former Brady Bunch cast members. In April 2007, McCormick appeared on Dr. Phil to discuss a family dispute, accusing her brother of both elder abuse and alienating their father from his other children to gain control of his finances.
  • 1981
    Age 24
