Robin Williams' wife says the Oscar winner was in the early stages of Parkinson's Disease. In a new statement, Susan Schneider said while bravely battling depression and anxiety, Robin was also struggling with Parkinson's but was not yet ready to share that information publicly. "Variety" further quotes Schneider as saying that she hoped that in the wake of Williams' passing, others "would find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid." Yesterday I mentioned Robin’s daughter Zelda got off social media because of dude trolling her with comments about her dad. Twitter Released a statement saying they "will not tolerate abuse of this nature" and suspended those accounts. And that they are in the process of reviewing how it can further improve its rules to "better handle tragic situations," and specifically "improving support for family members of deceased users."
ERIN ANDREWS was asked for her thoughts on plastic surgery, and she said, quote, "I've never done it, but I'm curious about all of it. I've seen great work, and I think we've all seen bad. I'm sure there will be a time in my life when I'll want to look into it."
"The Expendables 3" hits theaters today, with an ENORMOUS cast that now includes Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammer, and Mel Gibson as the villain. It's up against the comedy "Let's Be Cops" and the Jeff Bridges movie "The Giver".
BEN AFFLECK understands that some people don't think he'd make a great Batman, but he insists he can take it on. He says, quote, "Everyone's entitled to their opinion . . . [but] I wouldn't have done it if I didn't think I could do it." He adds, quote, "[There's a] terrific script . . . a great visual director . . . and an interesting take."
Apparently, people have been celebrating "Shark Week" by devouring shark meat at restaurants. That has shark conservation experts worried, because the most commonly eaten shark in the U.S. is listed as "Vulnerable," and the species could be close to becoming ENDANGERED.
Former "American Idol" finalist JOSH GRACIN is being detained on an involuntary psychiatric hold, after posting an apparent suicide note. Cops say Gracin is being held on a 5150 psychiatric hold. He drove himself to a hospital, with a police escort, after they pulled him over. He's been cooperative, has spoken to his family ... and is being evaluated by doctors now. “I’ve loved her for 17 years… I made mistakes… I admitted them, told her the truth and she turned her back on me when I needed her help the most.” The note went on to thank his fans for their love and he wrote, “Please remember me as someone who gave his all in his music… Pray for my family as they carry on in this world without me. Goodbye.”
