Tracy Morgan Released from Rehab Hospital, Sues Walmart Over Deadly Accident

Tracy Morgan Released from Rehab Hospital, Sues Walmart Over Deadly Accident

Virginia Sherwood/NBC(TRENTON, N.J.) — Comedian Tracy Morgan was released from a rehabilitation clinic Saturday following treatment for a June 7 car crash that killed one. Morgan, who was seriously injured when a Walmart truck hit his limousine, will sue the retail company for negligence. The truck, driven by Georgia resident Kevin Roper, was traveling at 65 miles per hour in a reduced-speed area at the time of the accident. A National Transportation Safety Board investigation found the sleep-deprived driver was going 20 miles per hour over the limit in a construction zone. “Walmart was careless and negligent in the ownership and operation of its motor vehicle, which caused Mr. Morgan to suffer severe personal injuries,” an official court filing reads.

Tommy Ramone, Last of the Founding Ramones, Dead at Age 62

Tommy Ramone, Last of the Founding Ramones, Dead at Age 62

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagicTommy Ramone, the last of the founding members of the groundbreaking punk band The Ramones, has died at age 62.
Ramone’s death was announced on the band’s official Twitter account just after midnight Eastern U.S. time on Saturday: “We are saddened to announce the passing of Ramones founding drummer Tommy (Erdelyi) Ramone. #RIPTommyRamone.”
Ramone reportedly had been fighting bile duct cancer.
Born Erdelyi Tamas in Budapest, Hungary, Ramone came to the U.S. in 1957 and ultimately joined forces with Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone — aka Jeffrey Hyman, John Cummings and Douglas Colvin — to form their band.
The quartet made their live performance bones at New York’s seminal punk club, CBGB, beginning 1974.  Their first album, Ramones, was recorded in a week’s time in 1976 for a reported $6,400.  Though it wasn’t commercially successful then, the album since come to be regarded as one of rock’s most influential.  Tommy Ramone played drums on that album, as well as the two follow-ups, Leave Home and Rocket to Russia, both released in 1977.
Tommy Ramone left the band after their third album to concentrate on studio work and producing.  He was replaced by Marc Bell, aka Marky Ramone.  Tommy Ramone spent the years since then producing music, and more recently as one-half of the bluegrass duo Uncle Monk.
The Ramones disbanded in 1996 and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, one year after Joey Ramone died of lymphoma.  Dee Dee Ramone died that year of a drug overdose, while Johnny died of prostate cancer in 2004.

We believe we have.”

John Sciulli/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic just started shooting, but it seems star Yaya DaCosta already has the iconic singer’s look down.In the first image released from the film, DaCosta, who starred in Lee Daniels the Butler, recreated the pop star’s 1987 Whitney album cover.“I just looked at the picture and did the pose,” the former America’s Next Top Model contestant told Entertainment Weekly.The film, which is being directed by Angela Bassett, focuses on Houston’s relationship with Bobby Brown and does not address the singer’s untimely death.Bassett told EW that she went with newcomers for the roles of Houston and Brown.“I want you to fall into the world of Whitney and Bobby. And I don’t want to stop you at the gate with maybe the image of something familiar, someone you’ve seen from something else,” she said. “Yaya was far and above the only choice.”

Justin Theroux Says ‘It Doesn’t Feel Like a Hardship’ to Be with Jennifer Aniston

Justin Theroux Says ‘It Doesn’t Feel Like a Hardship’ to Be with Jennifer Aniston

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) — Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston have been engaged for about two years, with tabloids coming out with weekly reports about their relationship and their upcoming wedding, and even speculating if Aniston is pregnant. Still, Theroux said he’s learned to cope with the heightened media scrutiny that comes with dating the Friends alum.”It doesn’t feel like a hardship, it doesn’t feel difficult,” Theroux told Details magazine. “It can be an annoyance, but it’s not the end of the world. You have to center on what its core thing is, which is that you met someone you fell in love with. It’s hard to explain. I just find myself wondering, What’s the big f***ing deal?”Theroux does admit it can be difficult, especially when co-workers and friends really think some of the tabloid reports are true.”It’s always based in fiction,” he said of the stories in gossip magazines. “You just kind of ignore it, but then you also become reluctant to say anything about the relationship. I could say everything’s good, and then it’s reflected back as ‘Justin Theroux: Everything’s Good?’ That just creates this echo chamber, and as it ricochets around the Internet, it just gets wacky.”Theroux met his fiancee through their mutual friend, Robert Downey, Jr. The Iron Man star told Details, “He and Jen fell in a real, legit fashion, and he was willing from the jump to make sacrifices.”Theroux, 42, and Aniston, 45, got engaged in 2012.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Jane Lynch Says She Wants “Glee” Alum to Return in Final Season

Jane Lynch Says She Wants “Glee” Alum to Return in Final Season

Danielle Levitt/FOX(NEW YORK) — Jane Lynch has entertained TV watchers for years as the sharp-witted Sue Sylvester in Fox’s hit musical series, Glee. And now that the show is coming up on its sixth and final season, the actress tells ABC News Radio that she’s ready to let go.”I don’t know that it’ll ever bring closure, this last season of Glee. I think I don’t necessarily need that so much,” she said at a recent luncheon in New York City hosted by Febreze, where Lynch shed light on noseblindness.Still, Lynch added she hopes several Glee alum return for the series’ final season. “I think it’ll be nice if we can get a lot of the people back that made this show magic. It was really a magic in those first few years,” she explained.Lynch will most likely get her way. Creator Ryan Murphy said earlier this year he’s inviting all past characters back to the series for its final season.But what will happen to Lynch’s Sylvester? “Well, I’ll be the principal again I believe,” the actress revealed. “So I think she might be a little more supportive perhaps of the glee club, which actually right now is defunct. But I’m assuming it’ll come back. It can! We don’t have Glee without the glee club.””So I think any time we have an opportunity to see what Sue cares about and how something affects her heart is always a good thing,” Lynch continued.Fox has yet to announce when the final season of Glee will premiere. The network recently chopped the season to 13 episodes, down from an original order of 22 episodes, Deadline.com reports.While Lynch isn’t filming Glee, she’s the host of NBC’s Hollywood Game Night, which returned last Thursday night. It’s a role that earned her a Primetime Emmy Award nomination this year. She was also nominated in the Outstanding Narrator category for her work on Discovery’s Penguins: Waddle All The Way.When asked if she had a chance of scoring another Emmy nomination, before the nods were announced, Lynch told ABC News Radio, “I don’t expect to be nominated. I don’t expect not to be nominated. It’s one of those things that you just go, ‘Oh, that’s nice!’ I’ll be happy for those who are.” Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

George Clooney Doesn’t Accept “Daily Mail’s” Apology over Engagement Story

George Clooney Doesn’t Accept “Daily Mail’s” Apology over Engagement Story

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — George Clooney is not satisfied with the Daily Mail’s apology for its recent report claiming his future mother-in-law disapproves of her daughter’s engagement to the Oscar winner.On Wednesday morning, the British newspaper removed an article from its website that claimed the mother of Clooney’s fiancée, British-Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, is a member of the Druze religious sect and wants her daughter to marry within the religion.The Daily Mail issued an apology and pulled the article — while insisting it was not a “fabrication” — after Clooney issued a statement via USA Today in which he accused the Daily Mail of making up the story and inciting religious tension.However, USA Today on Friday posted on its website another statement from Clooney, which makes clear that he does not accept the Daily Mail’s attempt to make amends.The actor writes that while the Daily Mail’s managing editor explained in the newspaper’s apology that the article was based on conversations with members of the Lebanese community, “the original story never cites that source, but instead goes out of its way to insist on four different occasions that ‘a family friend’ spoke directly to the Mail.”He continues, “A ‘family friend’ was the source. So either they were lying originally or they’re lying now.”Clooney further cites an April 2014 Daily Mail article that noted Alamuddin’s mother is not a member of the Druze sect.Calling the more recent Daily Mail story a “premeditated lie,” Clooney concludes, “So I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they’ve exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid. One that makes up its facts to the detriment of its readers and to all the publications that blindly reprint them.”  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Movie Review: “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (Rated PG-13)

Movie Review: “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (Rated PG-13)

Fox(NEW YORK) — It’s a decade after the events of 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in which the “simian flu” turned apes intelligent and wiped out a good chunk of the human population.  An ape society, led by Caesar (Andy Serkis in another motion-capture performance) exists peacefully on the outskirts of San Francisco.  They communicate using sign language, eye contact and facial expressions, which works wonderfully here, thanks to motion-capture CGI technology that’s advanced to the point where we can easily distinguish a sagacious gaze from murderous stare.  All of this plays out in a superlative opening sequence chronicling the apes on a hunting exposition so realistic and rendered so beautifully, it will leave audiences breathless. After the hunt, we get a taste of what ape culture is like: a thriving, somewhat utopian society of chimpanzees and orangutans.  They care deeply for one another, nurturing and teaching their young and constructing an ape ideal that’s the exact opposite of what they perceive human society to be.  At this point, they’re not even sure if there are any humans left, and they’re OK with that. But there are human survivors.  In San Francisco, they live in the city center behind a fortified gate.  They’re running out of power, though, and believe their only hope is the hydroelectric dam beyond the city.  If they can fix it, it will generate enough power to supply what’s left of San Francisco.  The journey beyond the Golden Gate Bridge is led by Malcolm (Jason Clark).  Much to his team’s surprise, they encounter Caesar and company, and are shocked by Caesar’s ability to speak — and more so by what he tells them: “Go!” Malcolm and company retreat to the city, but he believes Caesar can be negotiated with.  The city’s leader, Dreyfus (Gary Oldman), disagrees, but Malcolm convinces Dreyfus to give him a few days to work his way back to the apes and, hopefully, convince Caesar to allow him access to the dam.  Dreyfus reluctantly relents and allows Malcolm to take a team including Malcom’s son (Kodi Smit-McPhee),  girlfriend (Keri Russell), and Carver (Kirk Acevedo), a hot-headed engineer who really hates apes. When Caesar agrees to allow Malcom and friends access to the dam, one of his top lieutenants, Koba (Toby Kebbell), questions Caesar’s leadership.  Koba hates humans more than Carver hates apes.  This particular monkey was severely abused by humans and his overwhelming desire for revenge leads to some bad choices, choices that are terrible for ape-kind but terrific for moviegoers, because it drives a tension-filled story that’s as smart as it is entertaining. This is not a mindless summer blockbuster.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes harkens back to 1968’s original Planet of the Apes, which had so much to say about that era’s cultural and political issues.  Here, we see a clever allegory about today’s geopolitical landscape and the tragic decisions that lead to violent but avoidable conflicts.  It doesn’t hurt that Andy Serkis’ motion-capture performance as Caesar is truly Oscar-worthy.  It is my sincerest hope that the Academy puts aside its motion-capture bias and finally gives Serkis — who also gave life and soul to Gollum in The Lord of the Rings — the credit he deserves. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a remarkable technical achievement I plan on viewing a few more times before the year is out. Four-and-a-half out of five stars.

Kim Kardashian Is ‘Definitely Way Sexier’ As a Mom

Kim Kardashian Is ‘Definitely Way Sexier’ As a Mom

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) –  Kim Kardashian’s style has evolved since giving birth to her daughter North last year.According to the reality TV star, her fashion evolution was intentional.”Well, I am definitely way sexier ever since having my daughter!” she told Lucky magazine. “The struggle to get back into shape after giving birth is such a real one. It’s so difficult to do, and afterwards, all you want to do is show off your body and feel sexy.”Kardashian, 33, has been seen lately wearing tight dresses and cropped tops. With a few exceptions, she steers toward neutral colors — the same palette she said North supposedly prefers to wear.”She doesn’t like pink or purple. She likes greys, creams, oatmeal colors and black,” Kardashian said. “Every once in awhile she’ll add in some color, like with her little red Air Yeezys, but other than that she likes to keep it pretty simple.”The 13-month-old also has a passion for accessories, she said.”Every time I have a necklace on, she’s always trying to grab it and bite it. … [She] loves [jewelry],” she said. “And anytime I have a barrette or something in my hair, she’ll keep grabbing it, so I usually have to give her one of her own to play with.”

Ford Models Founder Eileen Ford Dies at 92

Ford Models Founder Eileen Ford Dies at 92

Photo by Donna Ward/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Eileen Ford, the Ford Models co-founder who helped usher in the era of the supermodel and shape a generation’s standard of beauty, has died. She was 92.Her death was confirmed to ABC News by Arielle Baran, a spokeswoman for Derris & Co., which handles public relations for Ford.In a statement, the agency wrote, “Eileen’s contributions to the modeling and fashion industries are unmatched. She founded Ford Models 68 years ago and due to her unwavering passion, curiosity and drive, grew Ford into one of the world’s most prestigious agencies.”Ford, who co-founded the agency with her husband Jerry Ford in 1946, was considered an industry icon and pioneer, launching the careers of Candice Bergen, Ali MacGraw, Jean Shrimpton and Lauren Hutton in the 1960s.Jane Fonda, Beverly Johnson and Suzy Parker were also on the Ford roster.By the 1970s, the Ford agency had grown to represent men and children, including Brooke Shields, who, at eight, became the first child model signed by an agency.During the ’80s, Ford represented supermodels Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Rachel Hunter.Born Eileen Otte in New York City in 1922, Ford grew up on Long Island with three brothers and modeled occasionally when she was a psychology student at Barnard College.After graduating, she helped several friends book modeling jobs, and within a couple years, founded the agency with her husband. Together, they helped change modeling from a mostly part-time low-paid hobby to the glamorous, multimillion-dollar industry it is today.“There’s no question I did that. I create a look and I create a style,” Ford told People magazine in 2003 about the wholesome, radiant look she championed.Jerry and Eileen’s daughter Katie took over managing the agency in 1995. Jerry died in 2008, after he and Eileen had been married for more than 60 years.

Rosie O’Donnell Returning to “The View”

Rosie O’Donnell Returning to “The View”

Michael Loccisano/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Days after denying it had made any hiring decisions, The View announced Thursday that Rosie O’Donnell is indeed returning to the ABC daytime talk show next season.
“It’s official! ABC confirms Rosie O’Donnell returns as co-host of #TheView w/ moderator Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18,” the show tweeted.
The announcement comes just days after a spokesperson for the show told ABC News, “We have no announcement to make and we are weeks away from making any type of announcement about anything pertaining to the show.”
O’Donnell was a co-host on the Emmy Award-winning talk show from 2006 to 2007. During her stint, O’Donnell carried on a feud with Donald Trump, and often bumped heads with then co-panelist Elisabeth Hasselbeck.  Hasselbeck, a current co-host on Fox & Friends, interrupted her vacation on Wednesday to call into the Fox morning show to express her displeasure with O’Donnell’s return, which at that point was simply a rumor.
“I know Rosie very well. We worked together quite closely,” Hasselbeck said. “Talk about not securing the border. Here in comes to The View the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there.”
The View may have more announcements in the future as it is on the lookout for new faces to replace the departing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.  The two announced last month they were leaving the show; those announcements followed the retirement of View creator Barbara Walters in May.

Zoe Saldana on Why She Married Marco Perago

Zoe Saldana on Why She Married Marco Perago

Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(NEW YORK) — Zoe Saldana has revealed why she married her husband, Italian artist Marco Perago, months after her breakup from Bradley Cooper.“I was finally able to spend time without being in a relationship and even though, it was a short period of time, it was beautiful,” she told Fashion magazine’s August issue. “Where I lost that fear of being alone. It was bliss.”The Avatar star, 36, split with her former fiancé, entrepreneur Keith Britton, after 11 years at the end of 2011. Soon after, she was linked to her The Words co-star, Cooper.Though Saldana never confirmed nor denied their relationship, the pair was spotted off and on through 2012.Then, in May 2013, Saldana was seen kissing Perago at a Star Trek Into Darkness after-party. It didn’t take long for her to realize she’d found her soul mate.“I met my partner when I was in really a beautiful place in my life. It was like I found all my answers with him not in him,” she told the Canadian publication. “I was finding my answers on my own.”Saldana also had some advice for younger women who think they already have all the answers.“Whenever these young women come and they just want to take everything all at once, just because they’re younger and their a**es are harder and plumper, you kind of go, ‘Child, sit down. Yes, you’re beautiful but listen to these 1, 2, 3s. 1. Don’t hike up your skirt too much. 2. I’m pretty sure you’re intelligent so act like it. 3. Read a book,’” she said.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Report: Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling Expecting

Report: Eva Mendes, Ryan Gosling Expecting

Sonia Recchia/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Once again, there are rumors that Eva Mendes is expecting a baby with longtime boyfriend Ryan Gosling.According to OK! Magazine, Mendes is seven months pregnant.”She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now, and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!” a source told the magazine.”Ryan grew up without a dad, so he always said when he had kids, he’d be there no matter what,” a source said. “This is it for him.”The magazine reports that now that the couple is expecting, Mendes wants to get married, too. However, Gosling isn’t totally on board with that plan. “Ryan doesn’t think they need to marry just because they are having a baby, but Eva believes it’s important to have their lives fully intertwined,” a source explained.This isn’t the first time Mendes has battled pregnancy rumors. In February, she went on the defense during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She told host Ellen DeGeneres that the baby rumors started after she “didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport.” Mendes explained, “You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy?
