Gayle King Is Proof That We Should Be Wearing Our Clothes Backwards
Huffington Post - 9 months
Gayle King likes to wear her clothes a certain way, even when that means wearing them backwards.  The CBS “This Morning” co-anchor recently re-wore one of her favorite dresses the wrong way for the second year in a row, simply because that’s her preference. For what it’s worth, it looks great either way on her:  Cards on the table. pic.twitter.com/jW51rTa8Nc — CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) June 7, 2017 The first time King wore the pink-and-red Antonio Berardi dress backwards, she posted it about it on her Instagram.  “Which is correct? Pix in the middle-dress is on BACKWARDS & I prefer this way .. Thoughts?” King wrote. “Shout out to @antonioberardi I LOVE the dress!”  A post shared by Gayle King (@gayleking) on Apr 6, 2016 at 9:46am PDT To be fair, the zipper going down the front of the dress is pretty confusing. Last year, former first lady Michelle Obama wore the dress the correct way on the cover of Seventeen...

If You're Looking For A Good Time, Just Watch Tom Hanks & Bruce Springsteen Talk About Life
Huffington Post - 10 months
The excitement in the room was contagious as fans filled the Beacon Theatre in New York City on Friday evening to watch legendary actor Tom Hanks interview legendary singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen for Tribeca Talks: Storytellers.  The crowd, made up of mostly middle-aged men and women, sipped on some cold beers and took photos of the empty stage, capturing the seats in which Tom and Bruce would soon to be sitting. A few minutes before showtime, former first daughter Malia Obama, alongside a friend, found her seat in the orchestra section. Then, Hanks’ wife, Rita Wilson, and Springsteen’s wife and bandmate, Patti Scialfa, walked in together with people screaming, “Patti! Woo, Patti!” She waved to the crowd as she found her seat while Wilson and Gayle King stopped to say hello and check in on Malia. Showtime was fast approaching.  And, soon enough, Hanks and Springsteen were introduced to stage and the crowd went wild. “BRUUUUUCCCEEE,” fans chanted, as they do at every o...

Scarlett Johansson Didn't Hold Back When Asked About Ivanka Trump
Huffington Post - 11 months
NEW YORK ― Scarlett Johansson went all in on Ivanka Trump at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit in New York City on Thursday. In a Q&A with Arianna Huffington at Thursday’s summit, Johansson talked about her now-famous “Complicit” parody commercial for “Saturday Night Live” last month, and her frustrations with the first daughter overall.  “If you take a job as a public advocate, then you must advocate publicly,” Johansson said on Thursday. “You can’t have it both ways.”  Johansson comments were in reference to Trump’s interview with CBS’s Gayle King on Wednesday, in which Trump said her impact in her father’s presidency would be more behind-the-scenes than overt. Ivanka told King that she will be “advocating for the economic empowerment of women,” but that the impact won’t be a visible one. “I think most of the impact I have over time most people will not actually know about,” she said.  But Johansson thinks Trump should be doing so much more,...

Dave Chappelle Explains How Comedy Central Hurt His Feelings With ‘Key & Peele’
Huffington Post - 11 months
Dave Chappelle is a bit disappointed over some of the new developments at Comedy Central. During a candid interview with “CBS This Morning,” Chappelle talked to co-host Gayle King about an array of topics, including his 2005 exit from Comedy Central. Following two successful seasons of “Chappelle’s Show,” the 43-year-old comedian says he walked away from a $50 million deal to relocate to South Africa and focus on fostering a closer relationship with his family.   A few years later, in January 2012, comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele launched their very own 30-minute sketch comedy series on the network titled “Key & Peele.” Despite being a fan of their show, Chappelle says that he noticed certain “conventions” ― regarding the race-related skits ― that the network previously resisted during his years of creating “Chappelle’s Show.” “I fought the network very hard so that those conventions could come to fruition,” he said. “So, like the first epis...

Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard: "The Greatest Star of All"
Huffington Post - about 1 year
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 sta...

The Joy Of Mary Tyler Moore And 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
“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 onl...
