Bob Einstein, creator of Super Dave character, dead at 76

Curb Your Enthusiasm regular and Super Dave Osborne creator Bob Einstein died Wednesday in California, his family announced. He was 76.

Einstein died after a recent cancer diagnosis, though his official cause of death was not revealed.

"R.I.P. My dear brother Bob Einstein. A great brother, father and husband. A brilliantly funny man. You will be missed forever," his brother and fellow actor Albert Brooks said on Twitter.

Einstein won two Emmy Awards, one for writing for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and the other as a producer for Van Dyke and Company, which won Outstanding Comedy Series in 1977. He also received a nomination for his work on The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour.

But Einstein is perhaps best known as the creator of Super Dave, a character that appeared on a variety of comedy and late-night talk shows, including The John Byner Comedy Hour, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Late Night with David Letterman, and most recently in the FX series Anger Management.

He also appeared in about two dozen episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm as Marty Funkhouser.

Born Stewart Robert Einstein on Nov. 20, 1942, in Los Angeles, his parents were actor Thelma Reeds and comic, writer and actor Harry Einstein. He attended college at Chapman University and studied advertising.

Einstein got his first shot at the entertainment industry when he appeared on a local cable show, a performance that drew the attention of Tom Smothers.

WWE Hall of Famer, interviewer 'Mean' Gene Okerlund dead at 76

WWE Hall of Famer and legendary professional wrestling interviewer 'Mean' Gene Okerlund has died at the age of 76.

WWE announced Okerlund's passing on Wednesday. A cause of death was not disclosed.

Okerlund joined WWE in 1984 after working as an interviewer for the American Wrestling Association or AWA. He then headed to WWE rival WCW in 1993 where he continued to work as an interviewer.

Okerlund was known for interviewing backstage and inside the ring some of the biggest professional wrestling stars of all time including Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Goldberg and many others.

He was present during a number of memorable and iconic wrestling moments including Savage's Cream of the Crop speech and the formation of the NWO by Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash.

Okerlund returned to WWE in 2001 to announce the Gimmick Battle Royal at WrestleMania 17 alongside Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan. He also starred on WWE's network-exclusive reality show Legends' House and interviewed current star AJ Styles on the 25h anniversary of Monday Night Raw in January 2018.

"A voice and sound track to an entire era of our industry. He was the star of some of @WWE's most memorable segments. 'Mean Gene' was beloved by all who got to work with him. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time," WWE EVP talent, live events and creative Triple H said on Twitter.

"Mean Gene I love you my brother," Hogan said on Twitter.

Olivia Newton-John is speaking out amid rumors she's close to death.

The 70-year-old actress shared a video message Wednesday on Twitter following reports she is "clinging to life" amid her battle with cancer.

"Happy New Year! Here's to a wonderful 2019! Love & light, Olivia," she captioned the post.

The video shows Newton-John laugh off rumors she is near death. She cited a quote that has been attributed to author Mark Twain.

"Happy new year, everyone!" the star told fans. "This is Olivia Newton-John and I just want to say the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated, to quote a very famous quote."

"I'm doing great and I want to wish all of you the happiest, healthiest 2019 that's possible," she said. "Thank you for all for your wonderful love and support for me and for my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness Center in Melbourne, Australia."

Newton-John's niece Tottie Goldsmith and rep denied reports about the actress earlier Wednesday.

"Just giving you the heads up that Livvy is in good health, so let's leave that distressing rumor where it belongs," Goldsmith wrote on Instagram.

Tabloids reported last week that Newton-John is close to death. The Grease star had confirmed in September she is battling cancer for a third time.

Daryl Dragon of Captain and Tennille dead at 76

Daryl Dragon of the musical duo Captain and Tennille died Wednesday at the age of 76, his publicist said.

Dragon, known widely as "Captain," died of renal failure while in hospice in Precott, Ariz., where his former wife and musical partner, Toni Tennille, was by his side, the Arizona Republic reported.

Dragon and Tennille formed Captain and Tennille in 1974 and topped the Billboard Hot 100 with their single "Love Will Keep Us Together."

"He was a brilliant musician with many friends who loved him greatly. I was at my most creative in my life, when I was with him," Tennille told The Hollywood Reporter.

Dragon was born in Los Angeles in 1942 to a musical household. His father was an Academy Award-winning composer and conductor and his mother worked as a singer on Bing Crosby recordings as well as others.

He played keyboard for the Beach Boys from 1967 to 1972 and during that time lead singer Mike Love gave him the nickname "Captain" because he often war a captain's hat on stage.

In 1971, Dragon met Tennille when she hired him to play piano for a musical called Mother Earth. The two formed a romantic relationship after he asked her to tour with The Beach Boys as an acoustic pianist.

They performed together in smaller venues while not with The Beach Boys and went on to form the duo Captain and Tennille, eventually signing with A&M Records.

Their hits included "The Way I Want to Touch You," "Lonely Night (Angel Face)," "Shop Around," "Muskrat Love," "You Never Done it Like That" and "Do That To Me One More Time."

Dragon and Tennille were married in in 1975 and moved to Prescott in 2008. They divorced in 2014, but remained friends.

Dragon is survived by his older brother Doug and two nieces, Kelly Arbout and Renee Henn.

No services have been planned at Dragon's request.
