Singer, former teen idol David Cassidy dead at 67
The Partridge Family icon David Cassidy died in a Florida hospital Tuesday evening. He was 67.

"On behalf of the entire Cassidy family, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, our uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy," the entertainer's spokeswoman JoAnn Geffen said in a statement to TheWrap. "David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long. Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years."

TMZ cited family sources as saying the singer had been on life support since Monday and his loved ones decided to remove him from it Tuesday.

With Cassidy when he died were his brothers Shaun, Patrick and Ryan, his children Beau and Katie, his nephews and his ex-wife Sue.

David Cassidy, who was suffering from dementia, was hospitalized last week in critical condition as his organs began failing.


Celebrities mourn David Cassidy: 'His memory and love will live on'
Celebrities such as Maureen McCormick and Brian Wilson have shared their thoughts concerning the death of David Cassidy on Twitter.

Cassidy died Tuesday in a Florida hospital at the age of 67 after he was hospitalized in critical condition.

The Partridge Family icon and singer was said to be surrounded by family when he died, including his daughter Katie of Arrow fame and his son Beau, his brothers Shaun, Patrick and Ryan, his nephews and his ex-wife Sue.

Family sources have said the singer was on life support Monday and his loved ones decided to remove him from it on Tuesday.

"So very sad to hear of David Cassidy passing away," McCormick of Brady Brunch fame said on Twitter. "He was always so kind and sweet to me. Our shows were both on Friday nights and deep down I dreamt of being a Partridge. His memory and love will live on in my [heart emoji] forever. Love you David. Prayers to his family."

"I'm very sad to hear about David Cassidy. There were times in the mid-1970s when he would come over to my house and we even started writing a song together," said Wilson of The Beach Boys. "He was a very talented and nice person. Love & Mercy to David and his family."

Arrow lead Stephen Amell, who worked with Katie on the superhero series, also commented on the star's death. "Arrow is a family & we're all thinking about @MzKatieCassidy & her family tonight," the actor said.

"I grew up in an era before even cable TV, when The Partridge Family was already in reruns. David Cassidy's Keith was one of my favorite TV characters. He was legit funny AND he could sing. The man entertained me during my childhood and even years later," said filmmaker Kevin Smith who shared a video featuring Cassidy and his Partridge Family costar Susan Dey.

"I was very sad to read of the loss of David Cassidy. My family and I send much love to his family, friends & many fans," said actor Sean Astin.

"RIP David Cassidy. Who my age did not want to look like, sound like, just be him when they were young?" said actor Tom Arnold. "I was lucky to get to know the sweet & very funny real David as an adult & I still wanted to be him."

"Sad to learn David Cassidy has died. Like his father Jack he had great talent, and a complicated life. Condolences to his wonderful family," said broadcaster Larry King.

CBS fires Charlie Rose amid sexual harassment allegations
CBS News announced Tuesday it has fired veteran broadcast journalist Charlie Rose.

The move came a day after The Washington Post reported eight women alleged Rose behaved sexually inappropriately toward them between the late 1990s and 2011.

The accusers -- who were former employees or people who sought jobs from Rose -- told the newspaper he groped them, made lewd phone calls to them and walked around nude in front of them.

Rose, 75, has been a co-anchor on CBS This Morning since 2012. He also occasionally filled in as anchor of CBS Evening News.

Rose issued a statement to the Post saying he has advocated the careers of women during his 45 years in journalism.

"Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues. It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken," he said. "I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will, too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives."

After initially suspending Rose Monday, CBS News President David Rhodes announced Tuesday that Rose had been permanently taken off the air.

"Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace-a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place," Rhodes said in a statement on the CBS News website. "I've often heard that things used to be different. And no one may be able to correct the past. But what may once have been accepted should not ever have been acceptable. CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last. Our credibility in that reporting requires credibility managing basic standards of behavior. That is why we have taken these actions."

Which Full House cast member posted a photo from the hospital after a hockey injury?

Dave Coulier is recovering after a hockey injury sent him to the hospital.

The 58-year-old actor shared a picture of himself on crutches Monday on Twitter after hurting himself playing hockey.

The picture shows Coulier showing a smile as a hobbles down a hospital hallway while wearing a brace on his right foot. The actor's leg is also wrapped from toe to knee.

"I love hockey. But sometimes hockey doesn't love me back. #Hockey #cutitout," he captioned the snapshot.

Coulier's injury comes ahead of the Part 2 premiere of Fuller House Season 3. The Netflix series will return with new episodes Dec. 22, including an episode directed by Coulier, who plays Joey Gladstone.

"Directing @juanpablodipace and @andreabarber in this hugely funny scene in the second half of @fullerhouse season 3. #cutitout #fullerhouse," the actor wrote on Instagram in October.

Fuller House is a sequel to Full House, which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995. Lori Loughlin, who portrays Aunt Becky in both series, confirmed Sunday that the original show will air on the Hallmark Channel starting in January.

"One big happy family! #fullhouse & @hallmarkchannel starting in January 2018," she wrote.
