A League of Their Own Mini Reunion

Posted on: May 10th, 2016 by Candy

Geena Davis and five of her teammates got together for a mini A League of Their Own reunion at a softball game to cap the second annual Bentonville Film Festival, which Davis co-founded in 2015.

 

Davis was joined by five other Rockford Peaches, the team portrayed in the flim, including Megan Cavanagh, who played Marla Hooch; Ann Cusack, who played Shirley Baker; Tracy Reiner, who played Betty Spaghetti; Anne Ramsay, who played Helen Haley; and Freddie Simpson, who played Ellen Sue Gotlander. Gina Casey, a former member of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, formed in 1943, joined the Peaches to throw the first pitch in the game.

Amy Schumer will no longer take pics with fans…

Posted on: May 2nd, 2016 by Candy

This article originally appeared on PEOPLE.com.

Amy Schumer is taking a firm new policy with fans: She won’t be taking any more photos with them – and it’s all thanks, she said, to one particular fan in South Carolina.

As Schumer, 34, explained in a Saturday Instagram post, a man (pictured in the post) had “just run up” to her on the street in Greenville and “scared the s—” out of her. The comedian performed in the city Saturday night.

“Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said ‘No it’s America and we paid for you,’” Schumer wrote in her caption, adding that the man was with his daughter.

“I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid. Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no,” Schumer wrote.

“I will not take [pictures] with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville,” she wrote.

“Greenville makes you feel like mmmmmmm,” she wrote.

Schumer elaborated on her Instagram post on Saturday, writing on Twitter that she still will take photos “with nice people when I choose to if it’s a good time for that.

“But I don’t owe you anything,” she continued. “So don’t take if I say no.”

Schumer also told PEOPLE in a statement that she was grateful for her fans:

“I am grateful to people who like my work and support me but not the ones who think that behavior is ok.”

Later, the comedian apparently unwound with a bit on equine therapy, writing hours later alongside a photo with a horse, “Day turned around with Harley.”

Merle Haggard Passes – April 6, 2016

Posted on: April 6th, 2016 by brent

Merle Haggard Passes: Legendary singer, songwriter, musician and member of the Nashville Songwriters and Country Music Halls of Fame Merle Haggard has died in hospice care after battling pneumonia. He turned 79 today (4/6). A leading figure of the famed “Bakersfield Sound&quoquot; and one of the most influential artists in country music history, Haggard has spent significant time in the hospital in recent months causing the cancellation of multiple tour dates.

A fatherless upbringing from the age of nine just north of Bakersfield included near poverty and led to multiple run-ins with the law, a stint at San Quentin State Prison, lifelong personal battles and one of the most celebrated careers in all of music. Haggard’s hits spanned three decades and included “Swingin’ Doors,” “The Bottle Let Me Down,” “I’m A Lonesome Fugitive,” “Sing Me Back Home,” “Okie From Muskogee,” “The Fightin’ Side Of Me,” “If We Make It Through December,” “That’s The Way Love Goes,” “Footlights,” “My Favorite Memory,” “Are The Good Times Really Over (I Wish A Buck Was Still Silver),” “Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Star” and many more. All told, Haggard recorded more than 70 albums and more than 600 songs. He wrote nearly half of them himself and saw 40 reach No. 1. Arrangements are pending.
