  • DAVID SPADE OPENS UP ABOUT KATE SPADE & CHRIS FARLEY'S DEATHS

  • Tue, 23 Jul 2019 01:00:00 EST

    A little over a year following his sister-in-law Kate Spade's death by suicide, actor David Spade is opening up about her death. She was found unconscious and unresponsive on June 5, 2018 at her apartment in NYC. Her death was ruled suicide by hanging.

    David told The New York Times: "Katy was so funny. I don't know if agoraphobic is a word, but she didn't like to mingle a lot; she'd have people at her house and she was always so funny."

    Kate's husband Andy Spade later revealed that she "had suffered from anxiety and depression" and was "actively seeking help."

    "I feel like Katy wouldn't have done it, five minutes later," David said. "But these things happen and there's no going back."

    OTHER LOSSES

    The Times also revealed that his stepfather took his life when David was 15, and he said he also had "close friends" die when he was a teenager.

    "People just started going right and left, and I would sit and stare at a wall," David recalled, later adding: "I just said, 'OK, I guess I'll cross my fingers that it doesn't happen to everyone.' And more people would go."

    David, who also celebrated his 55th birthday Monday, reflected on some of shockingly harsh blowback he received from fans following his good friend Chris Farley's fatal drug overdose in 1997. One person wrote: "I wish you died instead of Chris Farley."

    "The first couple times it was rough," he told The New York Times, "but now it's the standard burn. I wish I didn't get that three times a week."

    Still, he says he is determined to go on.

    "But do you just stop doing what you're doing because of a tragedy?" he asked. "You have to go, 'Well, I still like doing this.' Some people won't be interested. But I did three sitcoms after that. It wasn't totally horrible."

    Spade can next be seen in his new late night series, Lights Out With David Spade.



  • MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY CRITICIZED FOR GEORGE'S BIRTHDAY WISHES

  • Tue, 23 Jul 2019 01:00:00 EST

    Tough crowd! Prince William and Kate Middleton's eldest son Prince George turned six on Monday, and while the king-to-be received multiple wishes from fans and family the world over, one missive has drawn more than it's share of attention.

    On Sunday, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wished their nephew a happy birthday under Kensington Royal's collection of birthday photos celebrating George's big day.

    "Happy birthday," the couple wrote underneath the pic. "Wishing you a very special day and lots of love!"

    The Duke of Duchess of Sussex thanked them, but not everyone was pleased.

    "He is the future KING. Treat him with respect," one commenter wrote. "He is HRH!!!!!!!!!"

    "He is HRH Prince George to you!!!!" another wrote. "Don't forget to mention!"

    Others pointed out that even other royal accounts used "HRH" in their messages.

    "When all the royal accounts have used a 'prince' except yours…so there is really something," another critic commented.

    Still, others begged the naysayers to relent.

    "They are his uncle and aunt," wrote one commenter. "No need to write his title. Being sincere is more important."

    "Stop nitpicking and relax," added another. "You just want to find fault where there is none. Family is family and how they address each other in public or private is none of your concern."

  • KRISTEN BELL, 'VERONICA MARS' CAST, CREATOR TALK SHOCKING FINALE AFTER TWITTER BACKLASH

  • Tue, 23 Jul 2019 01:00:00 EST

    Spoilers on the fourth season of Veronica Mars to follow.

    The cast of Veronica Mars is handing out tissues after the season 4 finale heartbreaker, which featured Veronica (Kristen Bell) and Logan (Jason Dohring) finally getting married and getting ready to ride off into the sunset.

    But moments after their marriage, an explosion kills Logan, shocking Veronica and traumatizing fans, many of whom dramatically bid the show "goodbye, forever" on Twitter Us Weekly caught up with the cast at San Diego's Comic-Con, and they shared a message to heartbroken fans.

    "I'd say I'm sorry," Bell, 30, said. "I'm sorry for the feelings that you're having but we're trying to keep it interesting, and she will have more fire and fuel inside than ever before if we're able to do it again."

    "I was devastated. I went home, my wife had to, like, put me through therapy over it, because to me, it just feels like … I get to see this guy when we work, and Weevil and Logan didn't bury the hatchet," Francis Capra, 36, who stars as Weevil, told Us. "So for me, I feel robbed in a lot of ways and I just want to say this: However you feel, it feels like you're losing a piece of Veronica because Logan is really a piece of Veronica but Veronica Mars is a phoenix. There will be fire, there will be death, but she will rise from the ashes and she will fly. You gotta think about that."

    WHAT'S NEXT?

    Meanwhile, series creator Rob Thomas is also sharing his thoughts on Veronica Mars' twists, turns and futures.

    First up, he tells E! that despite what conspiracy theorists may wish, Logan really is dead.

    "It's funny because I never thought there was any mystery whether Logan is secretly alive, and then you're about the fourth person who's asked me, ‘Is he really dead?' So, I wish I had shown the body or something but no, he is completely gone," Thomas said. "TV has conditioned us that if you do not see the body, they can be brought back. But it'd be a pretty cruel thing that Logan was somehow just hiding off somewhere away from Veronica."

    He also confirmed fan suspicion that the death happened in service of future seasons.

    "I think there's a reason why on a television series when your two leads get together, the show is over. It just gets inherently less interesting, particularly if you want to do a badass, noir mystery, it felt like cutting off an arm to save the body a bit," Thomas added. "If we never get to do more Veronica Mars then I placed a bad bet. I'm hopeful that fans can get their heads around it, but I'm incredibly nervous prior to finding out whether that is in fact true."

    Veronica Mars is currently streaming on Hulu.

She was on my chest and she wasn't breathing. The midwife gave her three lifesaving breaths on my chest and my husband was there. She came to life and we saw it."

The paramedics are on their way, he's still there. This person you don't know." Bell continued, "The paramedics come in, the cord is still on so he has oxygen through my blood. They cut the cord and Scott ran out half-naked with their son and I was naked after my seven hours of laboring." She said that despite being told he wouldn't "walk or talk" after going so long without oxygen, Ozzy is thriving and healthy.
