Ellen Degeneres has long since been the sole lesbian symbol on TV. As a result, she has had to make sure that she portrayed herself as being kind, generous, funny, and overall loveable in order to not ruin it for the entire LGBTQAI+ community.
While we honor our everyday heroes, the essential workers that are risking their lives for the greater good, I wanted to honor my childhood hero, Stan (The Man) Lee. For two decades, Stan Lee was Marvel Comics primary creative leader.
The COVID-19 Pandemic is continuing to take a toll on daytime television, but one veteran actor is willing to move forward without delay. The Young and the Restless stopped taping new episodes in March and are now showing older classic programs. It's rumored that the CBS daytime drama might start up production again in June, which indicates that viewers would see fresh programming in August. According to Soap Dirt there are more changes coming that both the cast as well as the fans might need to brace themselves for. Eric Braeden who portrays Victor Newman has announced that he is ready, willing, and able, to go back to work, but the choice may not be his to make.
Some people know what they want to be from a very young age.
He an actor, a director, a composer, a musician, a politician… It seems like there is nothing he is not good at, nor is he afraid of trying anything new. Today marks 90 years since one of the greatest filmmakers of all time was born and in honour of his birthday, here are some of my favourite movies of his. And I have to say, it has been really hard to narrow them down; I mean the man has 71 acting, 50 producing, 41 directing, 32 soundtrack and 9 composing credits to his name!

Soap Dirt recently announced that actors over age 65 possibly would not be taping scenes right away for The Young and the Restless when the show returns from hiatus. It’s possible the same thing could happen with the other three daytime drama programs. Taping of new episodes is alleged to start up in June. Add to this the 6 weeks it takes for a program to be on the air once it's been filmed and it might be August or September before soap fans will see original action and drama. Add an additional delay for older cast members and some of these characters might not be on screen the rest of this year. If this is what will be mandated to keep older cast members safe during the pandemic, then fans will be missing quite a bit of talent. The majority of those over age 65 happen to be men who have graced the screen for as long as 50 years. Let’s take a look at eight of them.

In summers of 1935 and ‘36, F. Scott Fitzgerald dragged his broken body and cracked-up mind to Asheville’s Grove Park Inn—a mammoth structure made of stone that played host to everyone from World War II diplomats to Harry Houdini.
