Michael Bay Honored At Handprint And Footprint Ceremony

Filmmaker Michael Bay was honored at a Handprint and Footprint Ceremony at TCL Chinese Theatre on May 23, 2017 in Hollywood, California, and some major celebs showed up to offer their support.

Actor Sir Anthony Hopkins spoke about Bay, stating that,“I’d heard about Michael many times- the legends of Michael Bay. Infinite. And I thought I wonder how this is gonna be. I knew that he was a force of nature. There’s nothing warm or fuzzy about Michael. I think he’s a teddybear inside. But he’s a stingray.”

Josh Duhamel also spoke, detailing that, “Aside from the fact that Michael is one of the most talented people that I’ve ever seen, ever met, his ability to- to visualize things on a massive scope is unbelievable to me.”

It’s nice to see celebrities being supportive of one another. Congrats, Michael!

EXCLUSIVE: David Norton ON MAFS Second Chances- “I Believe In The Process”

Last week, we exclusively spoke with Married At First Sight Second Chances star David Norton. In addition to talking about why he gave love a second chance, we spoke about why he felt confident enough to give the experts a second chance after his relationship didn’t work out on season three of Married At First Sight, if he had flashbacks to that initial relationship while filming this new show, and more.Continue Reading

President Trump- We’re Trying Hard For Peace

It’s definitely been a melancholy week with the horrific event at the Ariana Grande concert. While President Donald Trump was overseas, he did still make remarks regarding the incident.

Now, Trump has taken to Twitter to share a tweet regarding his trip and a tweet that seems to be reflective on his trip (as well as relevant in the aftermath of what’s happened).

“Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Middle East were great,” Trump shared. “Trying hard for PEACE. Doing well. Heading to Vatican & Pope, then #G7 and #NATO.”

“All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and in peace,” Trump added.

This week’s awful incident has sadly reminded us, yet again, how prevalent the threat of terrorism is and how much better it would be if there was peace in the world. We support our President working towards that.

EXCLUSIVE: Dean Sheremet- I’m Jewish And Eat Pork, Other Jews Should Be Able To Also

Celebrity chef Dean Sheremet recently posted a story to his Twitter we couldn’t help but take notice of. Specifically, the story detailed how Jews may be able to eat bacon due to a new interpretation of part of the Torah.

We asked Sheremet about this story he posted and he exclusively told us that, “I’m Jewish and I think if God is going to smite me for anything, it’s not my love of pork products.”

“I’ve eaten pork my whole life,” he added. “The only reason I see for people not to eat it is so they don’t feel like they are assimilating and more of an identity thing.”

While we can’t necessarily see this swaying the opinion of extremely devout Jews, it’s definitely interesting to read the initial article and take into consideration Sheremet’s perspective, especially seeing as he is Jewish.

Trump Speaks Out On Manchester Bombing, Calls Attackers Evil Losers In Life

Last night, a horrific event took place at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, when a bomb went off towards the end of the concert that killed people.

President Donald Trump, who is currently overseas in Israel, spoke out about the tragedy.

While he offered prayers to those affected by the events, he stated that, “So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life.”

“I won’t call them monsters,” he added of the attackers, “because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them, from now on, losers, because that’s what they are, they’re losers.”

In later remarks, Trump called for “all civilized nations” to “obliterate this evil ideology.”

Our thoughts and prayers remain with the victims of this terrible tragedy.

James Bond Star Roger Moore Dies

We are saddened to report that legendary James Bond star Sir Roger Moore– who appeared in seven Bond films-  has died at the age of 89.

His family took to Twitter to share the sad news, giving the following statement:

“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short battle with cancer. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.

We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many times over, across the world, by people who knew him for his films, his television shows, and his passionate work for UNICEF which he considered to be his greatest achievement. 

The affection our father felt whenever he walked on to a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working into his 90th year, through to this last appearance in November 2016 on stage at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The capacity crowd cheered him on and off stage, shaking the very foundations of the building just a short distance from where he was born.

Thank you Pops for being you, and for being so very special to so many people. 

Our thoughts must now turn to supporting Kristina at this difficult time, and in accordance with our father’s wishes there will be a private funeral in Monaco.

DeborahGeoffrey, and Christian.”

When posting the note, they added that, “We are all devastated.”

Moore passed away from cancer. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.
