They’re both masters of makeup, though in very different styles. Gene Simmons is the famous elaborately-painted face of the rock band KISS, and his daughter has followed in his footsteps in some surprising ways, with her own personal twists. Get to know Sophie Tweed-Simmons here.

Known also as simply Sophie Simmons, she is the daughter of KISS bassist Gene Simmons and his wife Shannon Lee Tweed. Tweed herself is a model and actress, and also the mother of Nick Tweed-Simmons, an actor, musician, writer, and reality TV personality. Between the two siblings, Nick is the eldest at 32, while Sophie is 29 as of 2021.

Sophie Simmons was born on July 7, 1992 in Los Angeles, California, though through her parents her background is quite diverse, with her mother being a Canadian actress and model and her father an Israeli-American musician. Because of this, Sophie enjoys dual citizenship in America and Canada. Sophie was 14 when she, like her other relatives, appeared in A&E’s reality TV series Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Because the show ran from 2006 to 2012, viewers followed Sophie through her teenage years to the age of 20, staying up-to-date on her decision to attend college pursuing computer engineering and religious studies. Between this and her athletic activities, Sophie was intent on avoiding the same jobs as her parents, explaining, “I avoided the [music and modelling world] for a long time because I didn’t want the comparisons between my parents and myself.”

To an extent, she stayed the course, but even when her job plans did align with what Simmons and Tweed had pursued, Sophie put her own unique twist on her rendition. By 2015, she debuted her first single, a cover of “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Richer. 15 more tracks followed. Among the collaborations, originals, and covers, “Black Mirror” turned out exceptionally well-received, so much so it reached spot number 20 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. This might not have come to pass, though, as Sophie has been her harshest critic.

She admitted, “The first time I heard myself recorded when I was like 12, I quit singing for years. With music and modeling both, she had to learn to face a mirror of herself – be it voice or body – and accept what she heard or saw.

Putting her own advocate spin on her work

Sophie Simmons also got into modeling, though with an important caveat; she wanted to promote body positivity and self-love in this viral world where comparisons can so easily be made between one another. Ultimately, Sophie has proven herself a determined advocate for multiple causes. Indeed, she is the namesake of Sophie’s Place, a child advocacy center that receives partial funding from the government. She is also the brain behind the 2014 clothing line The Style Club, all about body positivity.

In the 2016 documentary Straight/Curve she brought issues of self-image into the spotlight by discussing body image and what kinds of messages are promoted in these modeling projects. Sophie spoke with The Cut to discuss true wellness and confidence. “Wellness is specific to each person,” she explained. “To me, it’s taking care of your body and having the long term in mind and not punishing yourself.” She also shared, “When I was in high school, I thought wellness was being skinny and pretty. I think a lot of young people still think that,” and countered, “Wellness has many different shapes and sizes; you can’t just look at what your best friend is doing and do that. It should be what makes you feel best and what makes you happy.” When modeling, she works with an agency that finds projects “that don’t want to change you.”

She also has a confidence-boosting ritual backed by medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. “If you stand in the superhero pose for just five minutes, it releases endorphins and helps you feel more confident,” she shared, adding “I do this if there’s something I’m really nervous about, like I’m going into a casting and I’m not the type they usually book. I can’t make myself thinner or prettier, but I can walk into the room with more confidence and personality.”

Advocacy even crept into her personal life and relationships. Back in 2011, Sophie dated a guy by the name of Nick Marshall, and together they attended volunteering camps before breaking up in 2013. Shortly after, Sophie got together with Cristopher James in a relationship that lasted to 2014. It is reported that she has stayed on good terms with her exes. An August 28 Instagram post shows her with a man, with the post captioned “end of summer […] with you,” accompanied by two hearts, but the photo itself is not tagged. Until the mystery is resolved, listen to some of her music below!

All rise for the honorable nostalgia, made most potent revisiting some TV classics. Today’s case centers around Night Court, a late ‘80s glimpse into the antics of Harry Stone’s municipal courthouse, complete with a band of colorful characters to delivery maximum mayhem.

The evidence is in, so let’s figure out all the hidden secrets of Night Court. What secrets does Bailiff Bull hide under that shining scalp of his? Just how did they choose what topics to tackle – or not – in this legal series? There are plenty of clues to paint a surprising picture about this series, so without further ado, the court is now in session.

These are their stories

The mishaps our favorite judg witnessed were sometimes rooted in reality

Show creator Reinhold Weege took some real inspiration for his show. In fact, he sat on the bench with some New York City night court judges. There, he saw some pretty wild things, weird enough to inspire an entire nine-season sitcom – because sometimes you just have to laugh at life. He also read about judges who were, in a word, eccentric, and ones that the state had trouble getting off the bench.

RELATED:  The Cast of Night Court – Where Are They Now?

This made Weege want to try just that, through sitcom format, of course, asking, what if that did happen. A wacky judge, stuck as this night court business, dealing with more wackiness and causing some of his own?

He crafted the character Judge Stone as a magician named Harry. Turns out, that exact person existed in the world! Producer Jeff Melman and his wife were watching Saturday Night Live, where none other than Harry Anderson tried performing a magic trick. They had to cast Harry, especially when they learned that Anderson even loved Mel Tormé!

Of course, friends of the staff got their shout-outs in the show, too! As prostitutes and pimps. Quite a few of the people brought into court were named after Weege’s own family and friends.

The ‘Barney Miller’ connection

This was Weege’s second legal-based sitcom. The first was none other than Barney Miller, a comedy based on a New York police station and its memorable employees. The premise was somewhat similar and Barney Miller employed an equally colorful cast to play off of one another..

Because Weege had worked on Barney Miller, some fans of the show saw Night Court as a direct spinoff, or at the very least a spiritual successor to it. In actuality, that wasn’t supposed to be the case, but the groundwork was there. On top of the similar subject matter, the show also shared actress Florence Halop. Before playing Bailiff Florence Kleiner, Halop had been in six Barney Miller episodes.

Keeping it light

By the time Night Court aired, even sitcoms tackled heavy subjects. Diff’rent Strokes made it an artform, and even the politically incorrect Archie on All in the Family learned some lessons.

Not Night Court.

Instead, Night Court never really tried to “say” anything, and that was on purpose. In John Larroquette’s own words, quote, “We don’t make any pretense of dealing with issues that are impossible to address or solve in the sitcom format. But if you just want to forget it all for a minute and laugh at pies in the face and pants around the ankles, that’s what we do very well.”

In fact, executive producer Stu Kreisman said they were so famously politically incorrect, Night Court probably would have had a cigarette sponsor if it had aired years prior. You could always count on this show to let you just forget through laughter!

Toast to Tormé

Before Night Court had an actor for its honorable judge, they knew some basic facts about him: he’d be named Harry, he’s a magic enthusiast, and his favorite singer is Mel Tormé. In fact, the first episode quickly establishes Harry’s worship of the musician. When Tormé’s own relatives saw the show, they called him up and made sure he knew about it.

Of course, Tormé was flattered by all this praise. So, when the show later asked him to appear in some episodes, he happily agreed. Turns out, they both did each other favors. All those references on Night Court made Tormé’s concert audience expand; he even said he noticed more and that younger people came to watch him perform; he directly credited the sitcom with his renewed popularity.

And the winner is…

John Larroquette

For better or worse, there’s no forgetting the uptight womanizing Daniel Fielding, played by the smooth John Larroquette. Just one line – or, even just one word – from him could steal the scene, and the academy noticed. Night Court has dozens of awards and nominations to its name. As for the actors, Larroquette alone won four Emmys in a row. By the fourth win, he got the message – and didn’t want to get the gold statue again. So, he actually asked the Television Academy to stop considering him for the Emmy, at least for his work as Fielding.

Larroquette listed two reasons for this choice: first, he honestly didn’t think his work was worthy of that acknowledgment anymore, partly because the original show creator left and it just didn’t feel the same.

Second, that most feared fate all TV actors dread: typecasting. Larroquette knew a LOT of viewers loved Fielding, and he appreciated that, but he also knew it wouldn’t last forever. So, when Fielding left everyone’s psyche, Larroquette wanted to as well, so he wouldn’t get typecast as the same archetype over and over.

A bald choice

Richard Moll was pretty “ooo-kay” as the simple, lovable Bailiff Bull Shannon, prone to silly slip-ups, but with a heart of gold. He was Manhattan’s very own gentle giant – literally; Moll stands at a towering 6 feet 8 inches!! Hoss, is that you, or perhaps a long-lost sibling?

It isn’t. Moll came from a wildly different project before this big role: a sci-fi film called Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn. If you haven’t heard of it, you’re not alone, since it was a bit obscure. But it gave Moll a starring role, minus his hair. In fact, he was still bald from the role when he auditioned for Night Court. Nothing about Moll was what Weege pictured for Bull, but he knew he had his guy. His only caveat was that Moll had to keep his head shaved.

Moll had no problem with that and even said he’d shave his legs for the part.

Bye, Bailiff!

Selma Diamond was the Night Court’s first bailiff Selma Hacker for 36 episodes, usually accompanied by a cigarette – yes, even right in the middle of the courtroom. Hacker was in her sixties and the character’s chain-smoking let her continue her own habit. Sadly, at the age of 64, Diamond died of lung cancer.

Florence Halop then took up the mantle of Bailiff Florence Kleiner. Also in her sixties, she was chosen because her comedic timing and mannerisms were so similar to Selma’s. She stayed on for 22 episodes until she too sadly died of cancer.

These back-to-back deaths for one role sparked rumors and legends that the job was cursed. Confronted with these losses, producers decided then they’d have to hire a younger actress. Enter Marsha Warfield, in her late thirties and ready to play Roz to the show’s end. Marsha admitted to having some reservations at first, and I don’t blame her!

Post pregnancy

Much of season 7 featured the blossoming relationship between public defender Christine Sullivan and Detective Tony, played by Markie Post and Ray Abruzzo respectively. The two even had a baby together, leading to some great moments about the joys and horrors of childbirth.

There’s a reason we got these iconic moments… simply, Markie Post was pregnant! She learned that she was expectin’ at the start of season 7 and the writers jumped into high gear writing up a romance and marriage arc – and of course a pregnancy plotline.

Cancel the Cancel

A lot of characters were due for satisfying arcs during what was supposed to be the finale

The Night Court held session for 193 episodes across 9 seasons, and ratings actually tended to go up as the show progressed, which is pretty ooo-kay as far as trends go! Especially given the circumstances, with a rotating cast and time slots that changed from year to year. It still managed to rack up 29 Emmy nominations!

Still, some critics could be pretty harsh, calling it bland and suggesting it robbed the cast of respect. To that, John Larroquette countered, “What is respect? You don’t do sitcoms for respect. You do them for laughs.”

So what’s the final blow against a stubborn survivor like Night Court? In-fighting and conflicting aspirations, naturally. NBC had plans to renew the show, but Warner Bros wanted to sell the show off somewhere else. So, the series ended up in a weird quasi-finished limbo, and it looked like the end was near, so the show writers treated it like the finale was fast approaching. Some original writers were even brought back to see the show through to its end. They set the groundwork for some great character arcs that would come together in a satisfying finale.

Except that finale had to be morphed into one more entire season, and all the plotlines planned for a brilliant finale had to get scrapped for this penultimate season. Writers and actors now finally felt a little slighted.

Some closure at last

Fans didn’t get quite the great ending they wanted – or could have had if plans went accordingly – but thankfully, another show had their back. 30 Rock followed the goings on of TV studios at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. A whole 16 years after Night Court was canceled, 30 Rock aired the episode titled “The One With The Cast of Night Court,” featuring Markie Post and Harry Anderson themselves to put together a true ending for Night Court.

In the episode, Christine and Judge Stone finally get married, resolving the Christine-Harry-Dan love triangle. It got mixed reviews, Tina Fey gets a tip of the hat for providing a proper Night Court ending.

So, does the jury have a verdict ready? What was a great episode from Night Court? And who has a favorite character over the nine-season run? Share your thoughts in the comments below, we read every one!

Jennifer Katharine Gates, the eldest of Bill and Melinda Gates‘ three children, got married over the weekend. She tied the knot with Nayel Nassar, an Egyptian-American equestrian. Jennifer, 25, has recently shared photos from the ceremony, which took place on Saturday in Westchester County, New York.

Jennifer shared photos on her Instagram page on Monday, two days after the event. One is immortalized as a post proper, meaning it will only disappear if Jennifer were to delete it. She also posted several pictures to her Instagram Story, which do disappear after 24 hours. But you can still see the beautiful shots here.

Congratulations to Jennifer Gates and Nayel Nassar

Jennifer’s Instagram profile is rife with photos of her and her new husband Nayel, both always happily holding one another close in each shot. But her Monday photo perpetuates the moment that affection manifested symbolically into a beautiful wedding ceremony. The two said “I do” at Jennifer’s very own $16 million horse farm. It offers sweeping views that serve as a breathtaking backdrop to the photo of Jennifer and Nayel returning back up the aisle.

They show more of the happy couple and Jennifer’s sweeping gown. Some also includes congratulatory text celebrating their union.

Melinda Gates was “a huge part of the wedding preparations” for the ceremony between Jennifer and Nayel, a source had told People, an undertaking that inspired Jennifer to thank her mother for putting together an “incredibly special celebration.” Jennifer herself has been busy between her time with Nayel as well as her medical studies; she is an MD Candidate with Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. However, it’s their shared love of horses that introduced Jennifer and Nayel. The two crossed paths at an equestrian circuit. Their mutual equestrian fondness and shared backgrounds as Stanford alumni made friendship easy.

Of her beloved, Jennifer calls him “one of a kind.” He managed to “Absolutely [sweep] me off my feet this past weekend” with his proposal back in January 2020 while the two were on a ski trip. The venue ended up being “the most meaningful location over one of our many shared passions.”

Jennifer was also glad for the many women who flocked to her during this big milestone and offered important guidance. “So deeply grateful for all the amazing women in my life who advise, support, and uplift me,” she wrote. The wedding ceremony itself began with official Islamic wedding proceedings and was attended by immediate members of the family, all of whom had to be vaccinated against and tested negative for COVID-19. Then, the couple enjoyed a larger ceremony together.

Actor Michael J. Fox has reportedly raised over $1 billion dollars for the cure for Parkinson’s disease. Michael was diagnosed with Parkinson’s when he was only 29 years old, back in 1991. He started the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research to help fund the cure and new therapies to help improve quality of life.

Michael said, “I just want to get this done. I’m committed to this. I won’t stop until it happens. If we can find a way to identify the condition before it’s evident. If we could take a piece of hair and find it. Then we could treat it prophylactically. Then maybe you don’t get it.”

Michael also said that he is feeling “great.” He added that he loves being a part of something that is so important like finding a cure and treatments. Last year celebrated the 20th anniversary of the foundation. Due to the pandemic, they couldn’t host a gala so it will be celebrated this year.

Even though his condition is getting worse and Michael said that his short-term memory isn’t doing well, he remains optimistic. He said, “Optimism is sustainable when you keep coming back to gratitude. And what follows from that is acceptance.”

He added, “Accepting that this thing has happened, and you accept it for what it is. It doesn’t mean you can’t endeavor to change. It doesn’t mean you have to accept it as a punishment or a penance. But just put it in its proper place.” Great to hear that Michael is doing well and raising so much money for the cause! Hopefully, a cure can be found.

The Beatles are reaching a whole new generation of fans by being on TikTok now, and they have nearly 200,000 followers on the app. Generation Z is the main age group on TikTok and now they will be able to experience The Beatles through the app, aka what Boomers and Generation X, and even Millennials, have enjoyed through the years.

The Beatles aren’t the first “old school” group to make it onto the “new school” app. Rick Astley’s ’90s anthem “Never Gonna Give You Up” and even Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” have begun trending on the app as well.

The new TikTok account for the fab four coincides with the recent promotions for the upcoming Distney+ Beatles documentary Get Back. The highly-anticipated documentary is slated for a November release. The documentary will apparently focus on the events surrounding The Beatles’ 1970 album Let It Be.

RELATED: The Story Of How The Beatles Almost Reunited In 1971

In addition to The Beatles getting their own TikTok account, their whole music library has also been added to the app, meaning that other users can make TikTok videos using their legendary and iconic music.

Individual member accounts have been active for the last few years

While some of the classic songs from their library have been added – including “Let It Be,” “Hey, Jude,” and more – some rare, deep cuts have also been added to the library. These songs include the John Lennon and Paul McCartney duet “I’ve Got A Feeling” as well as the final song the Beatles ever recorded as a band, “I Me Mine.”

While this is the first time The Beatles group has officially been featured on TikTok, the individual group members’ solo music has been on the app for some time now. An official TikTok account for John Lennon was created in 2020 and an account for Paul McCartney was made that same year. And in 2021, George Harrison and Ringo Starr’s TikTok accounts followed suit.

On Thursday, The Conners star Katey Sagal was clipped by a car while at a crosswalk and was hospitalized for treatment. New details have emerged indicating that the person who struck Sagal reportedly did not stop to offer help, and instead continued driving away from the scene.

Ultimately, Sagal’s injuries were not serious or life-threatening, and even the day of the accident she was expected to return home within a few hours, per her husband, Sons of Anarchy star Kurt Sutter. Sutter shared news of the collision and continued to do so usually with a lighthearted tone.

The driver who struck Katey Sagal reportedly did not help after the fact

Initial reports from TMZ wrote that after a Tesla driver clipped Sagal, they stopped to offer aid in some way. However, updates from Outsider indicate that this might not have been the case; instead, the outlet writes, that after making that left turn that saw the car collide with Sagal, the driver did not stop their vehicle to help.

As of October 15, new arrests had been made; however, the incident is under investigation. Shortly after the incident, it was deemed that no drugs or alcohol had been involved from either party. Though the driver did reportedly keep going after hitting Sagal, it’s unclear if the driver will be cited for the accident. A hit-and-run is classified as causing a vehicular collision with a person or piece of property then not stopping after to report or present the driver’s information. These are usually supplemental to the initial crime of striking a person or property.

Kurt Sutter makes light of the whole thing

A post shared by Kurt Sutter (@sutterink)

When the news first broke that a driver had hit Sagal, Sutter had shared a Tweet of the story from TMZ and added, “Must have been a slow news day at TMZ. Police told us it was Harvey Levin driving the Tesla.” His tone stayed consistent throughout the aftermath.

On Instagram three days ago, Sutter shared a screenshot of another story by Deadline, this time with him writing, “She’s the only one bringing in money right now… so I’ll be picking her up from the hospital later, taking her to that Dancing With the Stars audition.” Indeed, his time on Sons of Anarchy ended back in 2013 and he has only Chaos Walking as a recent project, while Sagal has several ongoing projects to this day, including ongoing roles.

Across 26 episodes, Betty Lynn was Thelma Lou on The Andy Griffith Show. Her resume would include theater, the small screen, and film, after she built herself up from dangerous performances abroad and hoping between one call to another she would land another gig with 20th Century Fox. In this competitive environment, Lynn was actually advised to be more selfish to have any  hope of getting ahead.

This advice came from Bette Davis, who was roughly 20 years Lynn’s senior. She sported a hundred acting credits across five decades of work, as well as two Academy Awards and ten nominations – the first actor to achieve such a number. Just what was the nature of their relationship that these words came up?

Though Davis began her career when Lynn was just three years old, she stayed active long enough for Lynn to catch up and for the two to end up working together. Davis and Lynn ended up meeting and co-starring in June Bride and Payment on Demand and they struck up a strong – and surprising – friendship.

Those who knew the actresses knew them as opposites of one another. Outsider notes that Davis was known as pessimistic and sharp, while Lynn was famously the darling sweetheart. Davis drew Lynn under her wing while also delivering lines like, “You are not No. 1 in your life and you’ll never be a star.”

How to be a star and how to be content

Bette Davis bestowed upon Betty Lynn the nickname “Boo” and the sage advice that if she wanted to be a start, she also had to learn to be more selfish. That would be an important factor in her getting ahead. However, Lynn was content with the way she was, and actually preferred not compromising her easygoing demeanor for selfish stardom.

So, she enjoyed a brief but memorable and beloved stint on The Andy Griffith Show, playing a character she genuinely loved. “I didn’t want to leave Thelma Lou,” she shared, adding, “I really loved her.” Perhaps because she reflected some of the values Lynn herself held onto so determinedly, for she went on, “I enjoyed her. She was sweet and kind, she was so fun to play.”

95-year-old Betty Lynn recently passed away. After a short illness, she passed away at her retirement home in Mount Airy, North Carolina. It seems her work on The Andy Griffith Show was very close to her heart because Mount Airy was the inspiration for the fictional town of Mayberry on the show. She also worked with The Andy Griffith Museum there.

Now, former co-stars and friends are paying tribute to Betty after the news of her death. Ron Howard, who played young Opie Taylor on the show, shared a message on social media. Betty played Thelma Lou on the show.

Ron wrote, “RIP Betty. She had such a positive spirit & energy. She and our mom were good pals on the set.” Ron’s mother was actress Jean Speegle Howard. He added in another post, “RIP Betty Lynn. She played Thelma Lou on #TAGS & brightened every scene she was in & every shooting day she was on set. I saw her last a few years ago where she still lit up the room with her positivity. It was great to have known and worked with her. She truly was 95yrs young.” RIP Betty!

Ron is now one of the only remaining cast members of The Andy Griffith Show still alive. While he grew up acting, he now mainly focuses on directing. Ron is also known for Happy Days and he recently shared his pick for a new Richie Cunningham if the show ever made a comeback.

He said, “There’s this kid, his career is really taking off so who knows, but let’s just say I think Jack Dylan Grazer would be great. That is Brian Grazer – my partner at Imagine Entertainment – his nephew. But nepotism aside, I think he’d be great.”

He added, “He’d be a cooler, hipper Richie Cunningham. If he was willing to take the job.”

At 56, swimsuit model Elizabeth Hurley has a strong ongoing resume that began back in 1987. Though the nature of her modeling work is not quite the same now as it was decades ago, Hurley easily attracts views with her viral photos showing off her continued bikini body. Finally, she has shared her secrets to maintaining that look all while avoiding plastic surgery, at least in moderation.

The latter is especially important to Hurley as the entrepreneur prefers not delving into procedures of that nature for herself. Instead, Hurley makes decisions that have her both looking and feeling young throughout the years. Learn more about her secrets here.

Hurley boasts her own swimsuit line and plenty of photos of her rocking some bathing suit or another that never cease to wow her social media followers. She does this without surgeries, she claims. “I haven’t eaten processed food for 100 years,” she outlined. “I don’t eat sweets. I drink little alcohol. I don’t smoke but I deeply regret that I once did. I have learned to eat lighter and not so late.”

She also lists that “one of the most transformative things” she’s decided to do is making “50 percent of what I eat vegetable matter.” That doesn’t have to mean taking things away, either, as Hurley proposed, “If you have a slice of toast for breakfast, have an apple too. Counteract everything with vegetables.”

Hurley knows what she’s about – and not

Hurley was also asked about using plastic surgery to achieve a bikini body look for beach season. She gave a vehement “No!” and added, “I don’t think it makes you look younger, I think it just makes you look like you’ve got filler.” In a similar vein, actors such as Jamie Lee Curtis and Sharon Stone have undergone plastic surgery and offered warnings about the dangers such procedures present.

While she is not about excess surgery and no longer wants anything to do with smoking, she sometimes pops a nicotine gum because she “can’t give up the Nicorette,” and has no reservations about enjoying peanut butter by the jarful. “I have one spoon, then another, and I’ve emptied the jar before you know it,” she admitted. Nice to know even famous models enjoy the truly good stuff!
