You may remember reading books by BEVERLY CLEARY in school, with characters such as Ramona Quimby and her sister Beezus . . . Henry Huggins and his dog Ribsy . . . and Ralph S. Mouse from “The Mouse and the Motorcycle”. Sadly, Beverly passed away last Thursday, but she lived to be almost 105.  Her birthday is April 15th. She’s basically been retired for 20 years . . . but she had a massively successful career.  She published her first book more than 70 years ago, and since then, her books have sold more than 91 million copies worldwide. 

Writer LARRY MCMURTRY died last Thursday.  He was 84. You may or may not recognize his name   The movie “The Last Picture Show” was based on his book of the same name . . . as was “Terms of Endearment”. His 1985 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “Lonesome Dove”, was adapted into a miniseries that earned 18 Emmy Award nominations, and seven wins.  It starred Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall. The books that were turned into movies did well, too.  Collectively, they earned 34 nominations, and 13 wins. Larry also wrote the screenplay for “Brokeback Mountain” alongside Diana Ossana.  It won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. That one wasn’t based on one of Larry’s works.   

A year ago, “Tiger King” was EVERYTHING.  So what’s going on these days in that alternate universe? First of all, JOE EXOTIC and his husband DILLON PASSAGE are getting divorced.  Well, maybe. Dillon posted on Friday that they ARE splitting.  But he added, quote, “We are on good terms still and I hope it can stay that way. “I will continue to have Joe in my life and do my best to support him while he undergoes further legal battles to better his situation.” And Joe had this to say in an email to his attorney:  “We are not going to get in a hurry and get a legal divorce . . . he is going to do what he thinks he needs to do and I prefer to stay married right now so things don’t get complicated and if I live through this great we will figure it out then.” Speaking of this bizarre cast of characters . . . JEFF LOWE had a stroke earlier this month, and he and his wife LAUREN think it may have been caused by a man who allegedly spiked his drink at a casino. 

SHARON OSBOURNE has quit “The Talk”.  At least that’s the official word from CBS.  They say “decided to leave.”  Sharon claims they orchestrated things so that she’d be caught off guard by the discussion of Piers Morgan’s alleged racism toward Meghan Markle.  That’s what led to all this chaos in the first place. CBS said something else interesting in the statement.  Quote, “We acknowledge the network and studio teams, as well as the showrunners, are accountable for what happened during that broadcast as it was clear the co-hosts were not properly prepared by the staff for a complex and sensitive discussion involving race.” 

Godzilla vs. Kong opened to a pandemic-best $121.8 million at the foreign box office, giving Hollywood hope that the mainstays can get theares moving again and vice versa. BTW industry term is tentpole. But then Scott starts giggling…  Christopher Nolan’s Tenet was the largest pandemic tenpole before this at $53 million. The tentpole launches in North America on March 31 

The first R-rated trailer for James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” has arrived. 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Black Adam has been pushed back to July 29th, 2022. Pierce Brosnan will play Dr. Fate in his very first superhero role.  July 2022 hopes to pack theaters, with other films like sequels to Black Panther, Fantastic Beasts, Minions and another horror film from Jordan Peele.  Black Adam will share its box office opening weekend with Disney’s fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise.

Beyonce‘s storage units were broken into with more than $1 million worth of valuables now gone.  3 L.A. area storage units filled with her stuff were hit twice earlier this month. This time they got expensive handbags and dresses. While the storage units are being rented out by her production company, Parkwood Entertainment, we’re told the missing items from the first burgle were only HER things. .Our sources say burglars came back within a week, and took down 3 storage units in the same facility … making off with handbags, kids toys and photos belonging to one of her stylists. 

Sir Elton John revealed on his Apple Music 1 show Rocket Hour that he’s been working with Metallica. He has already worked with Ozzy Osbourne and Gorillaz. Lars from Metallica says the new album was moving slowly so possibly. Elton was brought in for a dif perspective? 

Jane’s Addiction front man and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell really hopes that his festival returns to Chicago in some capacity in 2021, with his hopes set on the month of August. Here he is saying that but just using his words so its cooler

The Blues got things going early against the Ducks yesterday with goals in the first from both Ryan O’Reilly and Vladimir Tarasenko.  Unfortunately- that was the only scoring the Blues did and the Ducks ended up tying things up with goals in the second and the third.  Then, just under 2 minutes into the OT, the Ducks got the goal and the win.  Up next?  A weekend series against the Avalanche on Friday.

The Cardinals have narrowed down the 26 players they plan to carry on their active roster to Opening Day in Cincinnati on Thursday.  Among the final decisions: John Nogowski, Edmundo Sosa, Austin Dean and Justin Williams have made the team as position players. Right-hander Jake Woodford’s excellent spring landed him a spot in the bullpen. Lane Thomas was sent to the minors. The projected starting lineup?  Yadi behind the plate, Goldy at first, Edmund at second, Arenado at third, Dejong at short, Tyler O’Neill, Dyland Carlson, and Justin Williams in the outfield.  Jack Flaherty is scheduled to get the start.

On Saturday we started to see more teams punch their way further into the tournament.  Oregon State, Baylor, Arkansas, and Houston all jumped into the Elite 8.  Yesterday we saw Gonzaga, Michigan, UCLA, and USC advance.  Today Oregon State takes on Houston and Baylor takes on Arkansas.

Sticking with basketball…Memphis has its first title with Penny Hardaway as coach…and just because it’s the NIT don’t sleep on them. Memphis never trailed after a fast start to beat Mississippi State 77-64 in the NIT championship game Sunday, wrapping up Hardaway’s third season coaching. The Tigers won 11 of their last 13 games. The only setbacks in that span were a pair of losses six days apart against Houston, who is a 2 seed and currently in the Elite 8 of the NCAA tourney.

Former Cavaliers center Andre Drummond has cleared waivers and signed with the Lakers. Drummond agreed to a buyout with the Cavaliers on Friday, making him a free agent. LeBron James is expected to miss several more weeks with a high ankle sprain, while Anthony Davis is still nursing his achilles tendinosis along with a calf strain. Drummond is averaging 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game this season.

For the first time in 43 years, it looks like the NFL is set to expand to a 17-game regular season. An NFL bargaining agreement means that owners can add a 17th game as soon as the 2021 season. If that’s the case, then the first regular-season Sunday would start September 12th with the final Sunday on January 9th, 2022. That would put the Super Bowl on February 13th, 2022.  There would also be no extra bye week. The league’s owners are set to meet about expanding the season as early as this week.

Was the guy drunk, stupid or just that brave?  No one is sure. But UFC boss Dana White was left completely confused after a fan crashed his UFC 260 press conference in Las Vegas Saturday night and yelled “Dana, I’m ready to fight for you!” It happened post-fight when the dude made his way into the room.  White was left stunned as the guy yelled that he was ready for fight for him. Once security bounced the guy, White said “That’s f***ing weird, huh?” Once he realized what the guy had yelled to him, White shot down his UFC dreams by telling the press “He doesn’t look like he’s in fightin’ shape.”

The United States men’s soccer team fell to Honduras 2–1 on Sunday and failed to qualify for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. The men’s under-23 team has not qualified for an Olympics since 2008 in Beijing. Honduras has now qualified for Olympics four straight times while the U.S. has failed three times in a row now.

And finally — NASCAR announced Sunday that the Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway was postponed until today because of heavy rains and flood warnings.  The race will be held at 3 p.m. NASCAR hasn’t run a Cup Series race on dirt since 1970.
