Drew Barrymore recalls getting support from her former Scream co-star Courteney Cox when she thought she was pregnant at 21. With Courtney — who was in the midst of her decade-long run on Friends playing Monica Geller at the time of filming — being about 10 years older than her, Drew tended to look up to her like an older sister. She said she felt “safe” confiding in her about what was going on in her life.

The two starred in Scream in 1996. Drew said, “I remember at the poster shoot I was having a nervous breakdown, because I was having a false sense of being pregnant. I kept asking her, ‘How do you know if you’re pregnant? We’re supposed to shoot this poster, but oh my God, I just started dating somebody and how do you know?’”

Drew Barrymore recalls asking Courteney Cox for advice during ‘Scream’ shoots

As it turned out, Drew wasn’t actually pregnant at the time, though these days she is a mom to two daughters, Olive, 9, and Frankie, 7, and has stayed close with Courteney ever since their Scream days. Perhaps she asked her for motherly advice because Courteney has one daughter who is now 17 years old.

The fifth Scream film was recently released and stars original cast members Courteney, Neve Campbell, and David Arquette. It came out just a little more than 25 years after the original film debuted. Drew was not a part of this one since her character died in the original film.

From 1957 to 1963, Tony Dow was known to Americans everywhere as Wally Cleaver from Leave It to Beaver. While the sitcom introduced fans to Wally, its ending introduced to Dow a deep anger that manifested into depression. He struggled with these feelings to the point that it greatly shaped his life. Though he now has “got it under control pretty much,” he wants to share his story so it can teach others and encourage them to reach out, get help and realize that they’re not alone in any way.

Born in Hollywood on April 13, 1945, Dow more or less got into acting accidentally at the age of 11. “I was a swimmer back then and a pretty good one,” he told Fox News. “I was a junior diving champion and held a national record at 9. I was working out at the Hollywood athletic club and there was a lifeguard there who was an actor. He told my mom, ‘I’m going to this interview for a show where they’re looking for a father and son. Can Tony go with me because we kind of look alike?’ He figured maybe that was the only way to get it. I put on my blue suit and went in. I didn’t know what was going on, but everything was new and interesting. And I was with him so I felt at ease. However, I ended up getting the part and he didn’t, so that was unfortunate. The show was called Johnny Wildlife and it would’ve been the first color series on television about a wildlife photographer and his son. It was way ahead of its time. It didn’t go, but there was another show called Wally and the Beaver. That made the cut. It was later renamed Leave It to Beaver.”

Tony Dow fell into depression after ‘Leave It to Beaver’

Leave It to Beaver, which originally aired from 1957 to 1963, tells the wholesome story of the happy life of Wally Cleaver, his brother Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) and their parents (played by Hugh Beaumont and Barbara Billingsley). The series enjoyed immense commercial and critical success, but few shows, following their finales, had casting directors thinking of their stars for other roles. Dow was associated strongly with Wally Cleaver and yet when the show ended, Wally was not on everyone’s minds as frequently.

“And I was gonna have to live with it for the rest of my life,” Dow reflected on Wally defining his life. “I thought: This isn’t fair. You know? I mean, I’d like to do some other stuff. I’d like to do some interesting stuff. You know, it’s sad to be famous at 12 years old or something, and then you grow up and become a real person, and nothing’s happening for you.”

Following the show, Dow began hitting the TV guest star circuit and made a few film appearances. In 1977 he spoofed the whole Beaver thing in a clever courtroom moment from the movie Kentucky Fried Movie, written by the guys who would go on to make Airplane. No doubt he figured there was no harm as he would never play Wally again but, of course, he did throughout the 1980s. First in the reunion TV movie and then The New Leave It to Beaver series. When that show ended, he began directing episodes of such shows as The New Lassie, Harry and the Hendersons, Coach, Babylon 5, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He also served as visual effects supervisor on Babylon 5 and oversaw the effects of a Doctor Who TV movie aired on Fox.

Unfortunately, much of his life had not been his to shape from the moment he accepted the offer to perform on Leave It to Beaver. “From the time I was 11 or 12, I was being told what to do,” Dow shared. “I was told on the set. I was told at home. I didn’t have control of my life.” And so was formed a recipe for an intense, unique kind of grief that Dow would face for ages, and even to this day: depression.

Understanding is part of healing

It started as anger for Dow. Then, he explained, “Anger, if it’s untreated, turns to depression. But depression isn’t something you can say ‘Cheer up!’ about. You know, it’s a very powerful thing. And it’s had a lot of effect on my life.” But learning about what he was feeling, acknowledging it, and seeking out help gradually changed things for Dow. Part of his support comes from his wife, Lauren Shulkind, who guided him to see what good exists in his life. Not only is she an artist who supports Dow’s own artistic endeavors, she reminds him that being associated with Wally is not all bad; Wally is known for being sweet and gentle, both traits worthy of praise.

Dow finds purpose in sculpting abstract bronze statues, which he works on in a shared studio with Lauren. While it has definitely helped, he also takes medication and pursues therapy. All have played a necessary role in shaking the feelings that have haunted him. “You know,” he advised from his own experiences, “I think people should take the leap of faith that they can feel better.”

Following the passing of Betty White, fans have donated money to animal rescue charities in her honor. Some offer what they can afford to provide, be it a helpful $5 or a symbolic $100, equal to how old she would have been this January. Trisha Yearwood participated in this occasion of giving known as the Betty White Challenge and amassed over $30,000.

To raise these funds, Yearwood hosted a fundraiser on TalkShopLive, which describes itself as an “always live social-shopping network.” She hosted the event on Monday, January 17, which would have been the Golden Girls actor’s 100th birthday, and encouraged viewers and fans to donate money to benefit animal welfare efforts, a common interest between Yearwood and White.

The country music icon and Food Network chef opened her video with a question that possesses an easy answer. “Who doesn’t love Betty White?” she asked. “I just think, Betty right now is so happy that this is the way that the world is choosing to celebrate her birthday, by giving to animals, which was very near and dear to her heart.”

Yearwood did not meet White personally but saw her magnetic personality and boundless energy as White continued to break new ground in her career. “I think Betty’s appeal was just really, there was no limit, no age group,” Yearwood mused, “everybody just loved her. I remember as a kid watching her on the ‘Mary Tyler Moore Show’ and then, of course, ‘Golden Girls’… [She was] just beautiful and funny and smart and full of love. The world has really lost a wonderful person, but this is how we keep people that we love alive.” Advocating for animals was a cause that White would have wanted to see cherished, as she was vocal about her own efforts to help Earth’s critters, big and small.

Have no fear, even though it’s hard to hear

White, for all the smiles she provided generations of fans, would have cause to smile thanks to the results of Yearwood’s charity stream. Yearwood shared an update via Twitter announcing, “Seriously, thank you for being a friend and doing the #BettyWhiteChallenge with me! We raised over $24k in 15 minutes and the donations are still coming in!” Those results totaled over $38,000, she excitedly updated not long after.

But Yearwood had an additional way of being a friend to the animals White loved so dearly. Recall that this matter is important to Yearwood as well. In fact, last year, she started Dottie’s Yard Fund, a charitable organization named in honor of Yearwood’s late dog to “help dogs and cats all over the country.” Yearwood vowed that Dottie’s Yard would match the resulting donation raised for the Betty White Challenge. As an extra treat, anyone who donated $25 or more would receive a Dottie’s Yard magnet, featuring a pawprint with Yearwood’s initials scrawled across it. Bringing happiness in this way is certainly the way to honor someone who brought such joy to so many.

Several years before he died, Alex Trebek was asked who he thought would be a good replacement for him as the host of Jeopardy! Alex was considering retiring, so naturally, everyone wanted to know who his successor may be. In 2018, Alex Trebek’s picks were CNN legal analyst Laura Coates and TV commentator Alex Faust as potential replacements.

Alex mentioned Laura again in 2019, just a year before he passed away in 2020. Laura admitted that she was thrilled that Alex knew who she was! When the game show was looking for guest hosts, she threw her name in the ring and was shocked when they turned her away.

She said, “I actually was as shocked as anyone else was when he first said it … and I was thrilled when he said my name. I thought, ‘My God. This person that I have watched my whole life really, even knows my name let alone thinks that I would be worthy enough to fill his shoes which frankly can’t be filled?”

Fans speculate that it may have been the decision of former executive producer Mike Richards. He led the search for a new host and then named himself the new permanent host. However, he promptly stepped down after fans uncovered some of his past offensive comments. Do you think Laura should get a chance to host the show?

The Cincinnati Zoo is honoring the late Betty White in the best way they can… by naming a penguin after her. Betty was not only a beloved actress but an animal lover and animal rights activist. She worked with many zoos, especially the Los Angeles Zoo. She had previously attended a fundraiser at the Cincinnati Zoo so they felt they wanted to do something to honor her.

On Jan. 17, what would have been Betty’s 100th birthday, the zoo revealed that they named their penguin chick Rose in honor of Betty’s most iconic character Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls. They shared a photo of the adorable baby penguin on Instagram and wrote, “In honor of Betty White’s birthday today, we are naming our little blue penguin chick Rose! We think Betty would approve!”

Right now, Rose is only a month old but will soon join the other penguins in the penguin habitat. In a few months, zoo visitors will be able to see Rose in person. After Betty passed away, many called for donations for animal rights groups, zoos, and animal rescue centers in her honor.

She’s worked 9 to 5 through some rockin’ years and today, on her 76th birthday, Dolly Parton is still the quintessential example of starting at humble beginnings and doing nothing but climbing. It’s the dream young hopefuls have all heard, the one people travel the globe to realize, and Parton is the role model showing that putting in the work yields respectable results. Ultimately, her life is actually an important lesson for anyone who might feel discouraged as the world grinds on around them.

Parton was born on January 19, 1946, as the fourth of twelve children to a homemaker mother and a father who worked multiple jobs to sustain the family, who still just scraped by in a one-room cabin in Tennessee. But Parton in part credits this upbringing for shaping her into the woman two doors down, because her father had, by her accounts, a worldly kind of intelligence to him regardless of his illiteracy. As for her mother, though she often felt under the weather, she determinedly entertained her large family with singing. Folkloric ballads became the ambiance to Parton’s childhood and the location of her later upbringing is immortalized in 1970’s “My Tennessee Mountain Home.”

Everyone starts somewhere

Before selling over 100 million records worldwide, Dolly Parton had to start somewhere. In truth, she started on the same path plenty of people have trodden and will pace for years to come. At the age of six, she began singing at church. A year later, this was not enough and Parton needed more ways to make music. But this is the family that paid the local doctor with cornmeal. So, she rigged her own guitar to play until her uncle gifted her with a proper one.

Still not even a teen, Parton’s voice populated the airwaves of local radio stations. When she reached 13, she finally had a deal with Goldband Records. Though, in 1961 at the age of 14, she still had some humble venues in her schedule, including at a gas station in Fountain City, Tennessee. Humility defined a lot of her early years – a mix of humility and defiant boldness. For example, “Coat of Many Colors” is an earnest recounting of a time she was bullied for wearing a handmade jacket at school.

But as she grew and became a young woman, Parton did not shy away from vibrancy and standing out; she mimicked the looks of women she deemed beautiful however she could, improvising makeup when necessary, already exhibiting the philosophy she would preach to her many fans, even if she didn’t have the words yet for it: “I couldn’t stop what I had a desire to do — which was everything. Which was to live. Which was to be.”

Parton certainly has been living, coming from that one-room cabin getting by each day to the namesake of the sweeping Dollywood amusement park. Parton has made herself into a figurehead for multiple generations by pumping out timeless hits; “Jolene” enjoyed trending status on social media as fans sang their own rendition, sometimes with creative twists. And she has used her solid platform to do earnest, clean good in the world. She has had some remarkable sources of inspiration along the way, including Johnny Cash at her first Grand Ole Opry appearance, where she was encouraged to follow her gut when it came time to chasing her career.

That’s not to say it’s been a continual success. Anyone who has hit bumps in the road, never forget: even Dolly Parton hit hard patches as well, and some pretty weighty ones, at that. There were points her solo career just did not spark the same revelry as her work with country singer Porter Wagoner. Sometimes, her solo work was even outright disregarded. Parton had people in her corner who wanted her to succeed – yes, in part to spur their own financial success, but it is an important reminder that not all triumphs have to be or will be solo efforts.

But Parton also knew when to look inward throughout her career. When she finally gained traction – thanks to certain redheaded bank clerk – Parton also gained attention from Elvis Presley and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, for “I Will Always Love You.” When the deal presented to her required signing over major ownership rights, Parton, a newly risen star who could use any big stepping stone in her career, rejected the offer. But why? Likely, she remembered the advice given to her by one Johnny Cash, to follow her instincts. Sure enough, she ended up netting millions, which would not have been possible had she agreed to the deal.

Today, as Dolly Parton crosses her 76th birthday, double the lucky digits, the genre-transcending singer and actress continues to live life in her unique and colorful way. She sleeps with her dramatic makeup still on her face, lest she need to be up and out suddenly, and only set the cosmetics and wig aside during a special getaway trip with a friend in her camper.

She has an abundant shelf full of accolades glinting like new gifts for her birthday, won over the course of a rigorous career, that mark her as one of the few people to win a Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony (the sought-after EGOT), a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, the Kennedy Center Honors, and 50 additional Grammy nominations – and a collaborative ice cream flavor called Strawberry Pretzel Pie, which is making its return this year with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream after its debut last year. This is an early celebration of the impending release of Parton’s new album, Run, Rose, Run, which itself has a book that is a collaboration with James Patterson due out March 7. This certainly is an eventful 76th birthday for Dolly Parton, likely just as eventful as the many more to come.

The orange crop is now set to be the smallest since World War II, which is sending orange juice prices through the roof—so don’t be shocked if your go-to OJ is higher in price than the last time. This is due to the fact that citrus disease along with bad weather are constraining the supply of oranges in the US, and this doesn’t help that the demand for OJ has gone up since the pandemic.

Frozen orange juice futures have surged more than 50% during the pandemic, with an increase to a two-year high last week, up 5% alone last Thursday.

OJ prices on the rise due to supply shortage

“You have your classical supply-demand mismatch,” says Shawn Hackett, president of Hackett Financial Advisors. So due to this, consumers should expect “much higher prices at the supermarket.”

The spike in OJ prices comes along with the general inflation that consumers have been dealing with all across the board. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the US consumer price index rose 7% over the past year before seasonal adjustments, which was the steepest climb in prices since June 1982. Additionally, over the past year, food consumed at home was 6.5% more expensive and prices at restaurants went up 6%.

Moreover, the USDA said it expects Florida to produce 44.5 million boxes of oranges this year, which is a small harvest—the smallest since the 1944-45 season when 42.23 million boxes were produced. With all this being said, consumers can expect higher prices with higher demand due to supply shortage, which seems to be the case with a lot of things across multiple sectors.

Jenna Jameson’s partner, Lior Bitton, has confirmed that Jenna does not have Guillain-Barré Syndrome as previously thought. However, Jameson is still in the hospital dealing with health issues.

“It was confirmed by the doctor after second test and five rounds of IVIG [intravenous immune globulin],” Bitton said in a video posted to Jenna’s Instagram, “So she does not have the Guillain-Barré…. She still in the hospital with on going neurological tests,” he wrote in the caption. “Thanks for all the prayers please keep on praying thank you so much. God bless!”

Jameson shared a video recently, updating fans that she was in a hospital in Hawaii. “I’m dealing with a little syndrome called Guillain-Barré Syndrome, so I’m working through that,” she said at the time. “And I just wanted to let you know that I see all your DM’s and I appreciate it so much.”

Prior to that, Bitton had posted a video explaining that Jameson was undergoing testing after throwing up consistently for several weeks. A CT scan didn’t reveal anything, and so she was sent home. However, Jameson’s condition worsened after that and she ended up being hospitalized again after being unable to walk. So, as of this point, Jameson will continue to get testing until they are able to come to a result and rule out other syndromes and conditions.

James Holzhauer, one of Jeopardy!‘s greatest, has spoken out on the newest champion Amy Schneider following her massive wins. In a recent episode, host Ken Jennings kicked off the show by declaring that Schneider had responded correctly to over 1,000 clues and that she was tied with James’ record of 32 consecutive games won.

That’s when she went on to snag her 33rd win, proving that she could overcome any pressure thrown her way. She ended up with $1,111,800 in total earnings.

James Holzhauer shares this thoughts on Amy Schneider and her big win

This means James got bumped down to fourth place and aired his thoughts out online. “Big congrats to @Jeopardamy on her 33rd win!” He writes, then adds jokingly, “This makes three eligible players in the 30+ game millionaires club 🤔.”

Technically there are four of those players in the club—Ken ($2,520,700), James ($2,462,216), Matt Amodio ($1,518,601), and Amy—but one of them doesn’t count anymore. Since Ken became a consulting producer for the show and he’s no longer qualified to compete on the show, Ken is no longer eligible.

After claiming this victory, Schneider said she didn’t think it was possible to achieve. “I’m just blown away,” she said in an exclusive interview. “I have said I did start to think about this number a while ago, but it was really, I didn’t really think so. That only two other people have done this is just hard to wrap my mind around.”

Now, she’s looking ahead to see what’s next for her. “I do think a little bit about the bigger numbers down the road, but can’t get there without getting to 34 first,” she said. Well, January 18th, Schenider won her 34th game, continuing her streak and continuous achievements with Jeopardy!. This now brings her closer to trumping Matt’s 38 games won, and at this point, she’s proving it’s absolutely possible.

UPDATED 1/19/2022

Michael J. Fox is most popularly known for his role as time traveling teen Marty McFly in the classic ’80s movie Back to the Future. He has also starred in movies and television shows like Family Ties, The Michael J. Fox Show, The Good Wife, and Spin City. Well documented is the fact that in his private life he has been fighting Parkinson’s disease since 1991 (he announced the ailment to the public in 1998).

You may not realize that Michael has been married to actress Tracy Pollan — who he first met when she was cast as his girlfriend on Family Ties — since 1988, and that they have four children together. Michael has said that he and Tracy come from big families and were middle children, both of them attributing their long and successful marriage to how they were raised and how they always bring a sense of humor into every situation. Tracy has also said that they tend to give each other the benefit of the doubt, which helps in marriage. They have four children together — one boy, twin girls, and another girl and all are grown up now.

Their son, Sam Michael Fox, born May 30th, 1989 will be turning 33 soon and he looks just like his famous father! He does not act, although he was Mister Golden Globe in 2013, which means he was one of the young people who helps hand out trophies to Golden Globe winners. More recently he produced a short film titled Good Grief, starring his mom. He currently works in sales for a startup company. Sam and his sister Esmé are the only Fox children with public Instagram accounts.

Michael J. Fox’s Twin Daughters

Aquinnah Kathleen Fox is 24 and one of the Fox’ twin daughters. She’s worked extensively with charity groups involved with Parkinson’s disease and even interned at her dad’s foundation. She also works as a global brand and marketing consultant at Ogilvy in New York. The other beautiful twin is named Schuyler Frances Fox, who is obviously also 24 years old. She’s employed as a marketing associate with See Beneath, a group that is devoted to producing educational videos for children on the Autism spectrum. They were born on February 15th, 1995 and seem to be very private, so they probably aren’t going into acting any time soon. Beyond how identical they look to each other, their similarity to their mom as well is uncanny.

The last Fox child is Esmé Annabelle Fox, who recently celebrated her 20th birthday. The family’s youngest Fox was born on November 3rd, 2001 and she is currently a student at Duke University. There is not much information about her available, because she seems very private as well. Recently she did join Instagram, but the account is private. They are such a beautiful family!
