It is a sad day in the acting world…

Iconic television actor Jack Klugman, known best for his roles as the horridly messy Oscar Madison in “The Odd Couple” and the crime-fighting coroner Dr. R. Quincy in “Quincy, M.E.,” passed away on Christmas Eve.

According to Klugman’s son, Adam, Jack passed away suddenly with his wife by his side.  But as Adam reassured all his father’s fans, his loss is not something to be sad over:

“He had a great life and he enjoyed every moment of it and he would encourage others to do the same.”

The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, he was born in Philadelphia and began his acting career in college drama (Carnegie Institute of Technology). After serving in the Army during World War I, he went on to summer stock and off-Broadway, rooming with fellow actor Charles Bronson as both looked for paying jobs.

As time passed, Klugman started to land more and more roles, including a lead in a stage production of “Gypsy”, the role that eventually led to him being cast in the television version of “The Odd Couple”.  As Klugman explained:

“[Gary Marshall] said, ‘I saw you with Ethel Merman, and she was singing to you and spitting all over you, and you never showed it. That’s a good actor that doesn’t show the spit.’ That’s why he gave me the part.”

Soon, Jack’s resume was filled with Broadway credits, film credits that include 12 ANGRY MEN and DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES, and television credits including four classic “Twilight Zone” episodes and two hit series.

In 1989, however, in the middle of such a long and successful career, Klugman thought he would never act again after losing his voice to throat cancer.  But a random, one-night-only stage performance of “The Odd Couple” in 1991 with old friend Tony Randall gave him the motivation to strengthen his vocal cords enough to start acting again.

And lucky for us, that one performance gave us another two decades with the lovable everyman that always warmed our hearts.

Jack Klugman was 90 years old.

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.
