Chuck Barris: Where No Man Has Gonged Before
Huffington Post - 11 months
Chuck Barris, best known as the spirited host of TV’s "The Gong Show" and the brainchild behind "The Dating Game" and "The Newlywed Game," died Tuesday at the age of 87. Barris passed away from natural causes in his home in Palisades, New York, and no doubt he’ll be among the top hits in the next 24-hour news cycle. I haven’t seen the headline, “Gonged, But Not Forgotten” yet, but somewhere on the web it’s bound to pop up. Let’s face it: “The Gong Show” became a guilty pleasure when it ran from 1976 to 1980. Critically panned, it boasted lighthearted spunk with Barris at the helm as amateur performers tried to appease three celebrity judges—they just loved to halt those abysmal performances with a bold strike of a big gong. But Barris was an curious creative bird. I had the opportunity to connect with him during press interviews for the 2002 film “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” directed by George Clooney. The big-screen outing was based on Barris’s 1980 memoirs of the sa...

In Defense Of Letting Yourself Go
Huffington Post - about 1 year
By Dayna Evans For someone who’s never had a baby, I know a hell of a lot about “baby weight.” After Jessica Simpson gave birth to her first child in 2012, she was criticized publicly for how much weight she’d gained during pregnancy; the news cycle speculated so obsessively over Simpson’s body and potential “bounce back” that it inspired a Jezebel story cataloging 109 of the worst headlines. “Despite battle to lose 70 pounds, Jessica Simpson binges on birthday brownies,” wrote the Examiner; “Jessica Simpson is Working Her Way Back to Her Daisy Dukes,” wrote OK! How ghastly! Ack! The lady had put on too many pounds after, lord have mercy, bringing a real human life into the world. And after she admitted that her body was “not bouncing back like a supermodel,” Simpson, then 31, worked extra hard to get herself back into fighting form. Drew Barrymore admitted to the same disgrace recently: putting on 20 pounds when she’d been going through a divorce. “I had sort of let myself go,” ...

Drew Barrymore Shares Hilarious Story About Daughter's Meltdown At Disney World
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Stars ― they’re just like us. They take their kids to Disney World. They give them cute character costumes. And they watch them have full-on meltdowns in public. Appearing on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Thursday, Drew Barrymore talked about a recent trip she took to Walt Disney World with her daughters, 4-year-old Olive and 2-year-old Frankie. The actress said her girls loved Disney World. “It was the best experience ever,” she said. “I just had tears of joy seeing their joy.” Still, Barrymore cautioned, family Disney trips are not always sheer bliss. “If you’ve ever taken your kids to Disneyland or Disney World, it all ends at some point in mayhem,” she told Meyers. The host proceeded to share a photo of Olive having a meltdown at the park. “In this case, she wanted to chase a duck or an egret. It was Florida, so some interesting bird ... maybe a Disney employee ― maybe not, maybe wild,” the actress recalled. “But Olive was determined to catch ...
