Here's the Scoop...

Apparently, technical difficulties marred Mariah Carey's New Year's Eve performance. I guess, these days, she can't carry a tune in a bucket...and somebody forgot to give her bucket while on live television. Whoops!

Hey, better luck next year.

Be Well,
Steve

"Two weeks ago, he took a turn for the worse," the agent said in a statement. "Hospice began this week at his home, and he went peacefully without pain this morning."

Best known for his portrayal of kindly Father John Mulcahy on the Korean War-set sitcom and its short-lived spinoff series AfterMASH, the Illinois native also appeared on The Andy Griffith Show, Gomer Pyle, Hogan's Heroes, That Girl, Nichols, The Patty Duke Show, Death Valley Days, The Virginian, Alias Smith and Jones, Mad About You, Murder, She Wrote, Diagnosis Murder, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Team Knight Rider, Variety noted. His film credits include The Fortune Cookie, The Shakiest Gun in the West, With Six You Get Egg Roll and Hearts of the West.

He recently played a recurring role on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives.

Christopher is survived by Barbara, his wife of more than 50 years, and his sons John and Ned.


Billie Lourd breaks silence regarding mom and grandmother's deaths
Actress Billie Lourd has broken her silence in the wake of the unexpected deaths last week of her mother Carrie Fisher and grandmother Debbie Reynolds.

"Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist," Lourd said in an Instagram post Monday. "There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me."

The message accompanied a sweet family photo of Lourd as a little girl with her mom and grandmother.

Fisher died Tuesday at the age of 60 after suffering a mid-flight heart attack on Dec. 23. Reynolds, 84, had a stroke and died a day after Fisher passed. Lourd, 24, is Fisher's only child.

Funeral held for Zsa Zsa Gabor in Beverly Hills
About 100 people -- many of them members of the press -- attended Friday's funeral mass for actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills.

Gabor died Dec. 18 at the age of 99 after years of declining health.

The Hollywood Reporter said her ashes, which were contained in a gold box and surrounded by roses, sat on a table as her ninth husband Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt spoke for more than 40 minutes about his life with his wife of more than 30 years.

Among the mourners at the church were reality TV personality Bobby Trendy, actress Kate Linder and actor Jason Stuart.

"Lots of people she outlived, so most of her friends aren't here anymore anyhow. And other friends, they went on vacations. Colorado, Acapulco, to have a good time," THR quoted von Anhalt as saying about why more famous people were not present at the service.

The grieving husband also said during his lengthy eulogy he is pleased Gabor was immortalized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"She will never be forgotten because she has her Hollywood star," The Los Angeles Times reported von Anhalt said. "It will always be Zsa Zsa Gabor. It will never end."

"She epitomized and personified Hollywood glamour," agreed Father Edward Benioff, the only other person to speak at Gabor's funeral. "She could write. She could act. She had many, many talents."
