“Sex And The City” Star Willie Garson, Dead At 57

Willie Garson has died. The 57-year-old reportedly had cancer, but it wasn’t clear that it caused his death. His son, Nathen Garson,confirmed the news.

“I love you so much, papa,” Nathen said next to a series of photos of his late father. “I’m so glad you got to share all your adventures with me and were able to accomplish so much.”

While Willie has 170 acting credits to his name, he was best known for playing Stanford Blatch – a gay socialite who was Carrie Bradshaw’s bestie on “Sex and The City.” He appeared in 27 episodes of the show and both movies. In addition, he shot some scenes for “And Just Like That…” the “SATC” revival series for HBO Max.


Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Battle Over French Estate

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are still butting heads in court – this time, over the French estate where they held their secret wedding in 2014. Jolie allegedly cut Pitt out of a lucrative real estate deal involving the $164-million Chateau Miraval in Correns, France.

In court docs filed in Luxembourg on Monday, the actress is accused of trying to sell her 50-percent stake in the posh, 1,000-acre estate without giving Pitt first dibs on buying her out first. Pitt and Jolie held their shares for Miraval in separate LLCs, and three years before their 2016 split, Pitt transferred 10-percent of the estate from his company to her’s so they’d be equal shareholders… with part of the agreement being that the former couple would ask each other permission if they wanted to sell their shares.

Just like Pitt has accused Jolie of trying to drag on their custody battle, he’s saying she’s being sneaky about selling her shares without giving him the heads up.

Daniel Craig Believes James Bond Shouldn't Be A Woman

There has been much speculation over who’ll take over the role of James Bond when Daniel Craig bows out. If he has any say about it, it will NOT be a woman.

In a recent interview, Daniel said. “Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a part just as good as James Bond, but for a woman?” He’s not alone in that sentiment. As we told you, franchise producer Barbara Broccoli has no interest in giving the Bond part to a woman. “I believe we should be creating new characters for women — strong female characters,” she explained back in January 2020. “I'm not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.” 

Meanwhile, “No Time to Die” – the 25th installment in the franchise – hits theaters on October 8th.

"Star Wars" Editor Blasts JJ Abrams' Sequel Trilogy

Not everyone is a fan of the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy… and that includes folks involved in the original 1977 film. In an interview for the book “Howard Kazanjian:A Producer’s Life,” Oscar-winning editor Marcia Lucas goes off on the trilogy led by Kathleen Kennedy and directorJ.J. Abrams, saying neither of them had “a clue about ‘Star Wars’” when they took it on.

Lucas, who is also the ex-wife of “Star Wars” creator George Lucas, says she was “furious” that Abrams killed off the iconic characters played by Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and the late Carrie Fisher. She thinks it left new stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac hanging.

But it’s nothing personal against Abrams and Kennedy. In fact, Lucas wants to team up with them for the franchise’s next movie.

Brian Austin Green On Dating "DWTS" Pro Partner Sharna Burgess

Brian Austin Green is teaming up with his real-life partner Sharna Burgess on season 30 of “Dancing With The Stars.” They made their ballroom debut on Monday, and Burgess admits it’s been a “challenge” being a dance teacher and a girlfriend to her beau.

Burgess hasn’t dated anyone that she’s danced with, so there’s been a “learning curve.” But Green says she’s been an “amazing” dance teacher, and that it’s him who had to leave his “ego” at the door for rehearsals.

“She’s really great. I think the toughest thing for us has just been learning the situation,” he adds. “For her, not wanting to step on my toes … but we communicate and talk about everything. Everything’s been working amazing so far. We’ve been really lucky, and I felt very blessed with this situation.”
