"Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better."
It has been just over four months since Joan Rivers passed away while in the care of the Yorkville Endoscopy medical clinic in New York but her daughter Melissa Rivers is ready to sue. Melissa filed a lawsuit citing gross medical malpractice against Yorkville Endoscopy as well as Joan‘s personal doctor Gwen Korovin for the death of her mother. Says Melissa, “The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible. Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better.” Read on to learn more deets about Melissa‘s lawsuit and get all caught up on her push to punish the people she holds responsible for the death of Joan Rivers.

Cute or Not?

At first glance, it’s a really cute photo of a happy family — completely with adorable little girl — playing with an even more adorable baby tiger … but others are not happy with the exploitation of the animal. HMMM. More »

Earlier this week we learned the sad news that Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter, who were together for 13 years, decided to officially separate after they started growing apart earlier this year. Yesterday, on the morning after Xmas, Tim and Helena put up a united front and came together to take their children out for a post-Xmas lunch. It’s hard to tell if the couple were looking miserable because of the break-up, miserable because of the cold weather or miserable because they always look miserable but … they did look kinda miserable. Hmmm. More »
The Reason for the Season
For many years here (HERE and HERE) on the blog, going back to 2008 (and even earlier), I’ve posted photos of various celebs giving of their time on the holidays so that they can help serve meals to those in need at the Los Angeles Mission. For various reasons, I didn’t post photos last year or the year before and even tho we’re on the other side of Xmas this year, I don’t want to let another year go by without posting these photos. I’m sure the cynic in some of you may discount this endeavor as a PR photo op but I can assure you, many (if not all) of the celebs who donated their time at the LA Mission this year have been doing so for years. I think it’s really a great thing that these folks give of their time so that others can enjoy a holiday meal, something that we may take for granted. Kate Linder, the actress from The Young and the Restless, has served meals at the LA Mission for at least the last 8 years (as long as I’ve lived in LA) and I’m sure she will return year after year. If anything, I hope these photos can brighten your day and maybe inspire you to give of your time as well.

Cheese‘s when the characters come out—it’s just too much for some of them.
