Mrs. American Pie Lands a Comedy Legend for Its Stacked Cast

The Mrs. American Pie ensemble keeps getting sweeter.

Carol Burnett has signed on to the upcoming Apple TV+ series, according to TVLine

Burnett joins an already star-studded roster including Kristen Wiig, Allison Janney, Ricky Martin, Leslie Bibb, and Josh Lucas. To top it all off, Laura Dern is in talks for a role, as well. 

Quick, somebody write a new entry for “dream cast” in the dictionary.

Mrs. American Pie follows Maxine Simmons (Wiig) as she attempts to break into the exclusive Palm Beach high society scene. Burnett will play Norma, “the grande dame of Palm Beach high society and a keeper of secrets,” according to the streamer. 

“As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, Mrs. American Pie asks the same questions that still baffle us today,” the streamer continues, “‘Who gets a seat at the table?’ ‘How do you get a seat at the table?’ ‘What will you sacrifice to get there?'”

How Christy Carlson Romano Inspired Her Kim Possible Character

Here’s the sitch: Christy Carlson Romano had a big impact on Kim Possible’s life. 

It’s officially been 20 years since the release of everyone’s favorite Disney Channel cartoon, Kim Possible. (And yes, we feel ancient as well.) In honor of the show’s milestone, E! News sat down with Christy—who starred as the crime-fighting titular character throughout the Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle-created series’ five-year run between 2002 and 2007—and discussed how she inspired a lot of Kim’s characteristics. 

“Bob and Mark had taken some inspiration from me multiple times while I was voicing Kim and they were developing her as an actual teenage girl,” Christy said. “They were really good at trying to understand my point of view.”

She continued, “They had asked me one time, ‘Where, where do you shop? Where’s your favorite?’ and at the time, it was Club Monaco. And so they decided they would make her work at Club Banana.”

Heidi Klum, 49, stunned fans on Monday when she attended the premiere of Jurassic World: Dominion in a daring silver dress. The German-American model was joined by her daughter, Leni Klum, 18. 

Heidi opted for an eye-catching graphic print dress, risking a wardrobe malfunction with the gown’s extremely low-cut neckline.

The Project Runway star showed off her cleavage in her Spike Bustier Dress from The Blonds.

The daring outfit’s plunging neckline almost reached down to her navel.

Heidi paired the dress with black open-toe heels, while she wore her long blonde locks straight with a part through the middle.

Leni, who is following in her mum’s footsteps as a model, wore a pair of high-waisted black pants which laced up over her midriff, featuring a string of cut-outs running down the legs.

She also wore a slim black tank top, accompanied by black boots.

Leni accessorised with a boxy black handbag clutched under her arm.

Jurassic World: Dominion is the third and final film in the second Jurassic Park trilogy. 

The plot revolves around a new world, in which dinosaurs are now appearing globally, terrorising humans. 

Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) return from the previous Jurassic World films to try and save humanity.

Meanwhile Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum all reprise their roles from the original Jurassic Park (1993).

Laura’s ageless complexion was enhanced by a light layer of make-up and a bold, auburn lip.

Her blonde tresses were styled in a chic ponytail with two loose strands framing her face.

The event took place at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, and saw Laura’s co-stars also make a stellar appearance.

Laura first appeared in the Steven Spielberg franchise as Ellie Sattler in the 1993 movie Jurassic Park and reprised the role in the 2001 sequel Jurassic Park III.

Ray Winstone looks almost unrecognisable in a snap he shared on Instagram of himself enjoying a holiday in sunny Portugal. The actor, 65, looked worlds away from his clean-shaven image as he soaked up the Mediterranean sun while joking that an egg could be fried on his stomach due to the high temperatures.

In view of his 122,000 followers, the TV star shared a candid snap as he topped up his tan.

In the snap, Ray kicked back and relaxed as he lay on a sunlounger in Portugal.

In the topless snap, Ray wore a shell necklace which he matched with a pair of orange-tinted sunglasses and a black hat.

However, it was his bushy beard which rendered him almost unrecognisable.

Ray told his fans: “Got two days off graft, so we’re hanging about “Vallado Winery” in the mountains of Portugal.

“Hot, Too Hot! Not for me, I love it, you could fry an egg on my stomach” if you ever find yourselves down this way, stay here.

“It’s the absolute business,” he ended the post.

Dean Martin’s multimillion fortune over decades-long career — but who did he leave it to? | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Dean Martin, one of the most loved and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century, would have turned 105 today. The crooner and funnyman sadly passed away in 1995 due to an acute respiratory failure, but was born on this day in 1917 — just a year before World War 1 ended. He was nicknamed “The King of Cool” after breaking into the mainstream with comedian Jerry Lewis, billed as Martin and Lewis, in 1946. Dean became one of the most popular acts in Las Vegas and was known for his friendship with icons Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.

The singer also made it big on TV, hosting The Dean Martin Show, which started in 1965, featuring his singing and comedic talent.

His best known songs include ‘Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?’, ‘Memories Are Made of This’ and ‘That’s Amore’.

At the time of his death, Dean had amassed a huge reported fortune of $30million (£24million), but it is unclear who he left it to.

It is possible that he left some money to his ex-wife Jean Biegger, and he also could have passed on his wealth to his eight children, according to reports.

Among his kids is Dean Paul Martin Jr, a pop singer and film and television actor.

A member of the California Air National Guard, he sadly died in a crash during a military training flight in 1987, aged 35.

Ricci, another of his sons, was a musician and singer. He passed away in 2016 aged 62.

His daughter, Deana Martin, is a singer and actress aged 73.

She covered some of her father’s hit songs, including the title cut and ‘Everybody Loves Somebody’, ‘That’s Amore’, ‘Just Bummin’ Around’, and ‘For Your Love’ written by her mother Betty Martin.

She also sang a duet with her father’s former comedy partner Jerry Lewis on ‘Time After Time’, an album produced by her husband John Griffeth that reached the iTunes Top 10 chart, where it remained for 40 weeks throughout 2006 and 2007.

Deana once recalled a story when none other than Elvis Presley gave his opinion on her father Dean.

Deana told Buzzworth Radio: “Elvis was doing a movie at Paramount, and so was my dad. I went to visit dad at the studio and we were standing outside [dad’s] dressing room.

“And in those days, you rode around the studio on bicycles. And Elvis Presley comes riding up on his bicycle. And he gets off the bike when he sees my dad… And he says hi to my father. And dad introduces me.

“’Deana, this is Elvis Presley. And, Elvis, this is my daughter Deana.’

“And [Elvis] leans down to me and says, ‘Deana, they call me the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. But your dad is the King of Cool.’ And I thought, Oh my gosh. It must be true. Elvis Presley said so!”

Last year, Deana reflected on some of her earliest memories she had with her father.

She told Ticklish Business: “Watching my dad, he took care of his time, you know, I don’t know how he got everything in… (he was) doing nightclubs and movies and radio, and then later on in his life (he) started The Dean Martin Show.

“So he did so much. But he also was able to play golf every day. He loved golf. He told me ‘the reason why I work is so that I can take care of you kids and play golf’.

She added: “You know what, he was very special. He was different from from anybody else’s parents…. all the the kids in the neighbourhood wanted to come to our house because my dad was so much fun.

“(He) had a good sense of humour. And we were all respectful. We were brought up right…. you know, ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’.

“Thank God, I had my parents and my grandparents, but I did know that our parents were kind of special.”

They are Raven, 21, Reuben, 18, Miles, 15, Edith, 13, Violet, 11, Sidney, ten, Annas, eight, Clemmie, six, and Nancy, five.

Back in 2018, she was criticised for letting some of her brood drive quad bikes without helmets, and on tractor cabs and trailers without guardrails. 

Unite member and assistant farmer Matthew Belsey, who also serves on the Health and Safety Executive’s Agriculture Industry Advisory Committee, said at the time: “It’s really disappointing as a union to be working so hard to raise awareness about health and safety in the most dangerous industry in the economy – and then to see such risks and violations popularised on a TV show.

“I have children and young grandchildren and, as an experienced farmworker, I would never put them in risky situations like those shown on the programme.”
