Paul Reiser Writes About A Simple, Beautiful Moment With Michael Clarke Duncan

Actor and comedian Paul Reiser could not call himself a close friend of Michael Clarke Duncan. Hell, he probably couldn’t even call himself a real acquaintance.

Actor and comedian Paul Reiser could not call himself a close friend of Michael Clarke Duncan.  Hell, he probably couldn’t even call himself a real acquaintance.  But with a short, very simple new posting on The Huffington Post, he singlehandedly told the world what the man known as the “gentle giant” was really about.

The following post appeared on The Huffington Post early this morning.  (Reiser is a occasional contributor.) It is not edited in any way from the original writing, is absolutely beautiful, and I urge you to share it and try to live with the same demeanor each and every day…

And now, the words of Paul Reiser:

Here’s what I think of when I hear the name Michael Clarke Duncan:

NYC hotel, about ten years ago. Michael was in town doing publicity for Brother Bear and I happened to be staying in the same hotel.

We bump into each other in the lobby — we had a few mutual friends so it was an easy, comfortable “hello.” I gush about how brilliant he was in The Green Mile,and somewhere in the conversation I must’ve mentioned that my wife and two young boys happen to be with me in the hotel. We wish each other well and go our separate ways.

An hour later, the doorbell rings in our room. I open the door to find Michael Clarke Duncan — his enormous, muscular arms holding out a stuffed bear. “I don’t know if your boys would like this, ” he gently offers, “but if they do, this is for them.”

The term “gentle giant” may be overused, but I can’t imagine a soul for whom the words could be better intended.

Thanks for thinking of my boys, Michael. Your kindness and remarkable talent will be forever treasured. Rest in peace.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
