Ann Rule left us yesterday.The legendary chronicler of American crime passed away at 84 and we lost the very best. For those of us that make movies-for-television and mini-series, Ann was the True Crime Gold Standard. Everything else; everyone else would always be compared to her.
The importance of teaching children to tolerate discomfort in childhood is that children will be better adjusted and more resilient adults the more they can tolerate being uncomfortable at young ages.

New 20-year-old Aussie tennis sensation Nick Kyrgios has come perilously close to being defaulted for language and/or racquet and ball abuse at the US Open, the Australian Open, where John McEnroe was famously defaulted in 1990, and the Estoril Open in Portugal.
While The Riot Club is fairly predictable, its cast is no doubt a showcasing of the stars of British cinema's future not unlike our own The Outsiders (1983) that supplied us with Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, and so many more.
I began looking into the ice-bucket challenge because I was thinking of launching a challenge of my own. It turns out that it originated as the Cold Water Challenge. It was to donate to cancer research or jump into cold water. But my challenge is a bit different.

We spoke to Rob about parenting, his marriage and what's next for him at our Mamarazzi event for his new book, Love Life, at The Paramount hotel in NYC.
A very expensive lesson in linguistics for Paula Deen. Literally being haunted by words that hurt. I expect to see more of this in times ahead with all of the technology advances, smart phones, video files, digital pictures.
Galliano describes "hearing the rustle of the taffeta" and "being able to smell the perfume on the girl." The glee that once was Galliano's shines through still, alive and well. Galliano brings fairy tales to life, although he's been very close to losing his own.
Now that the Cannes Film Festival is drawing to a close, it's clear that HBO has grown into a major film-making force beyond the small screen.
Knife Fight is about on a level with the kind of comedy that shows up on Lifetime and the Hallmark Channel, with casts full of aging former TV stars. Movies like this give political satire a bad name.
Enough time has passed since Casey Anthony was acquitted of the murder of her daughter Caylee that audiences can now expect to be offered books, movies, TV shows, etc. of the story behind the story. One of the first out of the gate is Lifetime's original movie Prosecuting Casey Anthony.
