    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    I guess there isn’t. I probably just don’t think of a bikini/2-piece swimsuit as a usual part of the wardrobe of a woman in her early 70’s.

  4. Yes, I’m aware. I was speaking about the concept of Ms. Streisand being a grandmother in general, as I interpreted it when I read the comment in the original post. Plus, I’ve seen interviews with Josh Brolin done during the pregnancy where he referred to Ms. Streisand as being the baby’s grandmother, not prefaced by the qualifier “step”. So either he was just going along with the interviewer, who might’ve left or actually did leave “step” out of the term when asking about it, or Josh Brolin’s (parental) family is 1 of those blended families which doesn’t use “step” (or “adoptive/adopted”, “biological/non-biological”, etc., for other examples) to define the nature of their relationships. Though they may not biologically be related, the fact they legally are is what counts more. It’s like 5 of the 8 children of Marie Osmond are/were (1 sadly committed suicide a few years ago) adopted by her during her second marriage, & 3 are hers biologically (1–her eldest child/son—by her first & third/current husband, Steve Craig; 2, plus the 5 adopted children, by her second husband, Brian Blosil) but when she’s asked by interviewers or whomever which kids are adopted & which are biologically hers Marie says she forgets (obviously I’m sure she knows though); she just doesn’t distinguish between biological & adopted—they’re all her kids, however they joined her family. BTW, you referred to Josh Brolin’s children as his grandchildren in discussing how his long-deceased mother might feel about having her ex-husband’s current wife, Barbra Streisand, referred to as grandmother (presuming a biological relationship) to her biological grandchildren, instead of stepgrandmother (their actual legal relationship). Playing Devil’s Advocate here, it might be possible Mrs. Brolin #1 might not even care how her grandchildren refer to Ms. Streisand (& vice-versa), or what their relationship’s like, as long as the parties involved are OK with it.

    Regarding the bolded. Small correction, offered respectfully: The Giannulli daughter to whom you refer is actually named Olivia Jade, like the jewel stone; not Olivia Jane, as you’ve referred to her at least twice recently.
  6. Regarding the bolded: Ms. Streisand technically has a grandchild, but not through her son, Jason Gould (who, for what it’s worth, has long been at least rumored to be gay, if he’s not openly gay—although that doesn’t necessarily have any bearing on this). Actor Josh Brolin, her stepson through her marriage to actor & Life in Pieces co-star James Brolin (best-known for roles in Marcus Welby, MD, Hotel, & Pensacola: Wings of Gold), & his current wife welcomed their first child together (& his 3rd), daughter Westlyn Reign, late last year.

    She meets with attorneys in Jerusalem to decide whether or not to sue Americans &/or American companies? Unless they’re also licensed to practice in the US, that’s probably not gonna work if she uses the Israeli lawyers. Just saying.

    Right after the scandal broke, I read or heard Loughlin’s daughters were photographed on rowing machines (which I guess was supposed to help them make the Crew team). I know the school was bribed, but wouldn’t anyone be able to tell the difference between someone sitting on/in a rowing machine & sitting on/in the real rowing apparatus used by a Crew team? Or didn’t anyone care?

    In Memoriam: Celebrity Deaths

    Regarding the bolded & italicized comment. The thing of it is, even if they’d had a gun with blanks there was really no guarantee he couldn’t have been injured if he’d been shot by a blank, as they can do as much damage as a real round can. Something similar to Justin Carter’s accident happened in 1984, only the gun involved was loaded with blanks. Back in that year, CBS aired a show called Cover Up. It was 1 of those action-adventure series involving a pair of secret/undercover agents whose cover on their assignments is a photographer & her model. It originally starred actress & former model Jennifer O’Neill & an actor & former model named Jon-Erik Hexum. During a delay in shooting a scene where Hexum’s character was supposed to be loading a gun (he had been given a real gun & blanks to load it with), he became restless & impatient & began (sadly) goofing around with the gun, which was loaded, waiting to get the action of loading it from a different camera angle. Hexum unloaded all but 1 blank round, spun the chamber & simulated what he thought was a harmless game of Russian Roulette with a harmless weapon, putting the gun up to his temple & pulling the trigger. The paper wadding in the round (which is what prevents the gunpowder that’s still in the round though it’s a blank, & can cause as much trauma or even death as a real bullet) didn’t penetrate Hexum’s skull, but it caused enough blunt force trauma to shatter a quarter-sized piece of his skull, sending the pieces into his brain & causing massive hemorrhaging. He was rushed to a hospital, where he underwent 5 hours of surgery to repair his wounds. He was subsequently declared brain dead 6 days later, & was a posthumous organ & skin donor.

    Right. Besides, why would Sara Gilbert actively try to get a show she was both a credited star and executive producer of canceled, when she very likely makes money from performing both of those functions for the show? She’d lose a fairly large revenue stream that way, although she also currently performs the same 2 functions for the CBS daytime show The Talk so she & her family wouldn’t exactly end up in the poorhouse.

    She’s at it again... Blaming everyone but the RIGHT one (herself). She’s also saying this particular thing for the second time, after having previously said it & forgiven Sara Gilbert afterwards. From USA Today: ‘Roseanne’ Cancellation? It was Sara Gilbert’s Fault, Barr Says
