‘I Loved Him.’ Harrison Ford Bids Farewell to Star Wars Co-Star Peter Mayhew

Hollywood actor Harrison Ford gave a heartfelt statement on his Star Wars co-star Peter Mayhew’s death on Thursday.

Peter Mayhew was a kind and gentle man, possessed of great dignity and noble character,” Ford said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 7-foot-3 actor played Chewbacca, the loyal sidekick to Han Solo, who was played by Ford. The famous Wookiee, who starred in five Star Wars films, including the original trilogy, died at his Texas home on Tuesday at the age of 74.

Ford said the duo’s unique bond extended beyond the silver screen.

“We were partners in film and friends in life for over 30 years and I loved him. He invested his soul in the character and brought great pleasure to the Star Wars audience,” Ford said about his co-star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Remy Ma Turns Herself in For The Alleged Assault of Love & Hip-Hop Co-Star

Remy Ma Takes Over 92Q For A Day

Well, it could be a wrap for Remy Ma.

The rapper, who is not only a new mother, but is currently on probation, turned herself into New York City police Wednesday. This comes after reports surfaced that she punched Brittney Taylor at a concert last month.

The pair previously appeared together on the New York version of Love & Hip-Hop. Taylor, who no longer appears on the show, claimed Remy punched her in her right eye while backstage at the Pretty Lou Benefit Concert at Irving Plaza back on April 16th. Taylor said the argument had something to do with a member of Remy’s family.

Remy surrendered to police with her lawyer. Taylor is also planning to file a civil lawsuit against Remy, requesting cops preserve all evidence of the alleged assault, including surveillance footage.

If you’re unfamiliar with Remy’s rap sheet, she previously served six years in jail for shooting a friend in 2007 in a dispute over cash. Her probation was scheduled to end in August.

Eliza Dushku Says CBS Fired Her After She Confronted Bull Co-Star Over Harassment

Eliza Dushku broke her silence about a $ 9.5 million confidential settlement she reached with CBS, saying the network fired her after she confronted co-star Michael Weatherly over his alleged sexual harassment on the set of the show Bull.

In a Boston Globe op-ed published Wednesday, Dushku detailed the harassment from Weatherly, which included comments about his “rape van,” name-calling, comments on her beauty, boasting about his virility, and a remark about having a threesome. She said CBS wrote her off Bull after she addressed Weatherly’s behavior with him directly.

Dushku’s essay comes after the New York Times reported that CBS settled her harassment claims for $ 9.5 million. While Dushku declined an interview for the Times story in order to honor the terms of her settlement with CBS, she wrote that she chose to speak out this week after seeing that Weatherly and Bull showrunner Glenn Gordon Caron had provided comments “in what amounted to more deflection, denial, and spin,” she wrote.

“The narrative propagated by CBS, actor Michael Weatherly and writer-producer Glenn Gorden Caron is deceptive and in no way fits with how they treated me on the set of the television show Bull and retaliated against me for simply asking to do my job without relentless sexual harassment,” she wrote. “This is not a ‘he-said/she-said’ case. Weatherly’s behavior was captured on CBS’s own videotape recordings.”

Representatives for Weatherly did not immediately comment on Dushku’s piece. In a statement to the Times, Weatherly said Dushku was uncomfortable with his “attempt at humor.”

“When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable with my language and attempt at humor, I was mortified to have offended her and immediately apologized,” he said. “After reflecting on this further, I better understand that what I said was both not funny and not appropriate and I am sorry and regret the pain this caused Eliza.”

Dushku wrote that she dealt with sexual harassment and bullying from Weatherly “day-in and day-out” for 10 to 12 hours each day for weeks until she spoke to him about it. In response to her request that he “help ease the sexualized set comments” Weatherly said: “Eliza, no one respects women more than I do,” according to Dushku’s piece. Following that conversation, Dushku said she was written off the show.

According to Dushku, the bullying continued even through the settlement process.

“The boys’ club remains in full force at CBS,” she wrote. “In the settlement process, CBS used as defense a photo of me in a bathing suit, pulled from my own Instagram, as if this suggested I deserved or was not offended by the sexual harassment I experienced.”

Dushku’s essay comes as CBS faces other sexual harassment scandals. Her settlement deal with the network came to light during an investigation of former CBS CEO Les Moonves over accusations of sexual assault and harassment, including forced oral sex, groping and retaliation. Moonves was terminated for cause and will not receive $ 120 million in severance, the CBS board announced Monday. Former CBS co-anchor Charlie Rose and former 60 Minutes producer Jeff Fager were also fired in recent months over sexual misconduct allegations.

CBS confirmed Dushku’s settlement in a statement. The network said the amount she received reflects what she would have gotten for the balance of her contract as a series regular on Bull.

“The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s claims are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work is far from done,” CBS said in its statement.

Lisa Rinna Throws Shade at ‘RHOBH’ Costar Lisa Vanderpump

As Lisa Rinna once said, her lips were made for talking and that’s just what they’ll do. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star threw shade at Lisa Vanderpump amid reported drama between the cast.

“Listen. What we do, is not that hard. We film for 4 months. We laugh, fight, we make up, whatever. We make a tv show. We are so blessed and so lucky to have a Job. For those who watch, Thank you!” the 55-year-old actress tweeted on Wednesday, December 5. “I felt like that needed to be said. We aren’t curing cancer here. It’s a f—king tv show. Ya know?! … And I think we all make a darn good tv show.”

Rinna then started taking questions from fans, including one about Vanderpump’s whereabouts.

“She’s on Vanderpump Rules,” the former Melrose Place star replied, referring to her costar’s spinoff, after a user tweeted “Where’s LVP? Can’t get enough of her!”

Social media users were quick to respond to Rinna’s tweet, calling her “iconic” and a “legend” for the “well deserved shade.”

Us Weekly broke the news in October that Vanderpump, 58, was on the outs and refusing to film season 9 with her castmates, including Rinna, Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley and Teddi Mellencamp. While reports surfaced last month that the restaurant owner was exiting the series, Vanderpump denied she was done with the show.

“I am in the season, obviously. There are some parts I missed and you’ll see why and I think maybe we’ll have a better understanding when you watch the show,” the SUR owner told Us in November. “There’s a plethora of stories that say I’m quitting, that say I’m trying to get Jax [Taylor] off [Vanderpump Rules]. If I had quit I would have said it.”

Rinna, meanwhile, called the upcoming ninth season of the show “sketchy” after a fan asked her to describe it in one word.

In another tweet, she added that “the current season is going to be excellent and I predict the highest rated.”

When asked if fans will be “surprised” by season 9, Rinna quipped, “I am, so I’m sure you will be too.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return to Bravo in 2019.
