Kelly Knievel, son of famous daredevil Evel Knievel has filed a lawsuit against the Disney and Pixar companies, claiming they used his dad's likeness without permission. Evel Knievel was known for his skills at doing what no one else had done before him. His daredevil stunts cost him many broken bones and hospital stays. Two of his most famous motorcycle jumps were at Wembley and Kings Island. On May 26, 1975, Knievel crashed in front of 90,000 people at Wembley Stadium in London. He was trying to land a jump over "13 redundant single-deck AEC Merlin buses." He refused a stretcher and said that he had walked in and was going to walk out. He added that he was retiring but that was short-lived.
The CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless continues to be the highest rated soap and also the one with the most behind the scenes racial allegations. To this day there are viewers who still wonder about Victoria Rowell’s claims of racism against 3 former costars. Rowell left the show in 2007 and later accused Peter Bergman, Michelle Stanford, and Melody Scott Thomas of being racist towards her. She accused Stanford of spitting on her during a scene between their characters Phyllis and Drucilla and Stanford admitted it was true. Rowell never gave detailed answers as to exactly what was done to her that was considered as racist, so viewers are left without pertinent detail.
