Here's the Scoop...

I hope that you had a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving. I'm stuffed.

The mood of the long holiday weekend changed quickly with the announcement of the passing of two beloved television icons. First, it was everyone's favorite TV mom, Mrs. Brady herself, Florence Henderson. And then 'Firefly' and 'Barney Miller' star Ron Glass.

I grew up watching reruns of both 'The Brady Bunch' and 'Barney Miller', respectively. Even today, if I see them on the ol' TV I have to stop what I'm doing and watch. It must be why I get nothing done.

Two truly talent entertainers and wonderful people that will be missed, but never forgotten. Thanks for all of the laughs and guidence throught the years.

Be Well,
Steve

'Brady Bunch' matriarch Florence Henderson dead at 82
Actress Florence Henderson has died of heart failure in a Los Angeles hospital, surrounded by her four children. She was 82.

Entertainment Tonight and CBS This Morning reported her Thursday death, but did not offer details about what led up to it.

Her death surprised many who had seen her just weeks ago on Dancing with the Stars where she cheered on contestant Maureen McCormick, who played her daughter Marcia on the classic sitcom The Brady Bunch and various offshoots of it.

Henderson herself had competed on DWTS in 2010.


'Firefly' and 'Barney Miller' star Ron Glass dies at 71
Ron Glass, a beloved actor known for his work on the TV shows Barney Miller and Firefly, has died. He was 71.

Variety confirmed Saturday the star's death, but said it had no details regarding where it happened or what caused it.

The Indiana native also counted among his dozens of screen credits episodes of the classic series Sanford and Son, Hawaii Five-O, All in the Family, The New Odd Couple, The Twilight Zone, Family Matters and Murder, She Wrote.

Glass' Firefly co-star Alan Tudyk took to Twitter to pay tribute to the late actor.

"Ron Glass was one of the greatest actors to work with. His laugh was beyond infectious and his generosity was ever present," Tudyk tweeted.

"Ron Glass was also a sassy smart ass and I prize that very much. A leaf on the wind," he added.

"I just finished my 107 shows in 10 months. 100 percent live every night. I bloody smashed it, even if I do say so myself. You lot have been incredible, every night you've been so beautiful, loving and engaged."

Which Legendary actress said this about the 'Beauty and the Beast' re-make: 'I don't quite know why they're doing it'?



Iggy Azalea wishes her plastic surgeon happy birthday on social media
Iggy Azalea has taken to social media to wish her plastic surgeon happy birthday.

"Happy birthday @DrGhavami. It might seem obvious I'd hold the man I owe my fabulous nose and breasts to in high regard," the rapper wrote on Instagram Sunday alongside a photo of herself and Dr. Ashkan Ghavami of Beverly Hills inside his office.

"But vanity aside; Ash you're hilarious as hell, talented, eclectic, a progressive thinker & someone who supports women in their choice to do what they want with their OWN bodies (tons of men don't share that sentiment)," she continued.

"So cheers to you! I'm proud to call you my friend."

Azalea has been open before about her plastic surgery, admitting in August of 2015 that she had gotten a nose job and that denying it would be "lame."

"I don't think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I've spoken about the changes I've made, like with my breasts," she said at the time. "It's no easy feat to live with your flaws and accept yourself -- and it's no easy feat to change yourself. Either way you look at it, it's a tough journey."

The 26-year-old last made headlines when she and boyfriend French Montana were accused of animal cruelty after they posed with an elephant on Instagram in Montana's backyard for his birthday.


??? Guess Who ???

Which Legendary actress said this about the 'Beauty and the Beast' re-make: 'I don't quite know why they're doing it'?

Angela Lansbury admits she doesn't really understand why Disney wants to re-make her 1991 animated movie Beauty and the Beast as a live-action/cartoon hybrid.

"I was a bit taken aback, naturally. I thought: 'Why? Why are we doing this over again?' But I guess, I don't know why they're doing it. But they are, and it will be interesting to see what they do with it. These are live-action pieces and I know very well the actress who's playing Mrs. Potts and she's a very good friend of mine. It's Emma Thompson," Lansbury told Entertainment Weekly.

Asked if it feels strange that the characters she and her co-stars brought to life will be played by other actors, Lansbury replied: "Oh, absolutely. I don't quite know why they're doing it."

"I can't understand what they're going to do with it that will be better than what we've already done. And how they're doing it live -- it may turn out to be very entertaining and wonderful. It won't be like the cartoon that we did, but it's a good story -- it's one of the famous fairy stories that is known worldwide by children. Therefore, why not? I don't blame them for doing it. But, I'm sorry, they're not really on our territory. We did it as cartoon characters, and that is quite different from live actors."

The New York Daily News noted the 91-year-old actress brought the house down when she took the stage to perform the film's title song at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's recent 25th anniversary screening of the animated movie. The new version is due out March 17.
