Stephen “tWitch” Boss, the DJ and dancer from “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “So You Think You Can Dance”, took his own life on Tuesday.  He was only 40 years old.

tWitch got his start on “Star Search”, before being a runner-up on “So You Think You Can Dance” in 2008.  He got together with fellow contestant Allison Holker in 2010.  They got married in 2013 and have three kids, 14-year-old daughter Weslie, 2-year-old daughter Zaia, and 6-year-old son Maddox.

Allison said, quote, “He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans . . . I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory.”

tWitch joined “Ellen” in 2014, and became a co-executive producer in 2020.

In an Instagram post, Ellen said, quote, “I’m heartbroken.  tWitch was pure love and light.  He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart.  I will miss him.

“Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children, Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”

They say that tWitch checked into a hotel just a mile from his L.A. home on Monday morning.  He had a small bag with him and only booked the room for one night.

Staff said he didn’t seem to be upset about anything, or suffering from any form of distress.

On Tuesday, when he missed checkout, staff found him dead in the bathroom from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. (Hollywood ReporterTMZ)

Jay Leno Shares Health Update After Third Degree Burns From Gas Fire

Jay Leno sat down with Today’sHoda Kotb and discussed the accident where his face was burned during a gas fire. Leno made jokes about the serious situation saying, “When you look like me, you don’t really worry about what you look like. Look if I’m George Clooney, it’s going to be a huge problem. … They said it would be all right. My attitude is I trust people who are the best to do what they have to do.” Let’s hear what he says about it. He added, “The fact that I have smooth skin, pouty lips, and a tighter butt has nothing to do with the accident. That was all secondary. The most expensive part of the whole operation was the gasoline. We’re in California. It’s seven bucks a gallon. Leno’s friend, Dave Killackey, tended to Jay after the accident. His account of the situation is much tenser.  After telling Leno to put cold water on his face, Killackey recalled seeing Jay’s skin peeling off his face: “It was horrific; it was a scary thing. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out: call 911.” After doctors told Leno to go to a burn center, Jay drove himself home because he was worried about his wife. Listen to this

Paul Stanley says Kiss is Far from Over 

Paul Stanley says even though his band is on their current farewell tour, we’ll still see Kiss in the future. Comparing Kiss to a sports team, Stanley told ‘UCR’ “When the MVP is no longer playing or retired, the team doesn’t call it quits. On a battlefield, an army, when they lose soldiers, doesn’t wave the white flag. Somebody else picks up the weapon and runs forward. So in one form or another, I believe there will always be a Kiss.” It sounds like Stanley is reiterating his bandmate Gene Simmons’ statement earlier this year, when the bassist said Kiss could go on as a concept with other musicians playing members of the original group. Stanley added that Kiss has every right to “evolve”, adding “There are bands touring at this point with one or no original members, and I have no problem with that because it didn’t happen overnight.”

John Cena and Jason Momoa To Star In Movie Together

Get ready for John Cena and Jason Momoa to match wits on screen together. Variety reports that the actors will star in an upcoming action comedy titled Killer Vacation. Not many details are known, but a small tease says the movie is about a holiday gone wrong in the style of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s True Lies. There is no release date set for the movie.

Madonna Shocks Fans Again With Topless Picture

The queen of controversy has struck again. Madonna posted a topless photo on social media, barely covering her assets. Madonna shared the picture on her Instagram stories showing her age-defying figure in a gold corset and fishnet tights. The pic left little to the imagination. She raised her arms above her head, showing off her chest for her fans, covering her nipples with a lollipop and cash bag emoji. “Express yourself, don’t repress yourself,” she wrote underneath the snap, which saw her posing in her bathroom at home. At 64 years old, what do you think of Madonna expressing herself like this? Maybe she’s just warming us up for her forthcoming biopic.

“Avatar: The Way of Water” opens this weekend . . . and not surprisingly, it should open BIG.

Estimates are putting it at $150 million to $175 million in the U.S., with a global debut of $450 million to $550 million. The movie is over three hours long, which means fewer showings . . . but at the same time, it really doesn’t have any competition this weekend.

“Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” has the biggest opening weekend of the year so far, with $449 million worldwide . . . and it didn’t even play in China, while “Avatar” will.

“The Way of Water” cost around $400 million to make BEFORE you factor in marketing (Hollywood Reporter) Director James Cameron made it a priority to include female empowerment in “Avatar: The Way of Water”.  So he made Kate Winslet’s character a pregnant warrior. He said in a Variety interview, quote, “I thought, ‘Well, if you’re really going to go all the way down the rabbit hole of female empowerment, let’s have a female warrior who’s six months pregnant in battle . . .  “I guarantee you, back in the day, women had to fight for survival and protect their children, it didn’t matter if they were pregnant.  And pregnant women are more capable of being a lot more athletic than we, as a culture, acknowledge.” James pointed out that there’s been amazing female characters like Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel, but they’re not moms and they’re not pregnant while fighting evil.

You may have heard that the riff from the Guns N’ Roses classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine” started out as one of Slash’s warm-up exercises.  It makes for a great story, but it’s NOT true. Slash says, quote, “I was sitting around the house where Guns used to live at one point, in ’86 I guess it was, and I just came up with this riff.  It was just me messing around and putting notes together like any riff you do.  “You’re like, ‘This is cool,’ and then you put the third note and find a melody like that.  So it was a real riff, it wasn’t a warm-up exercise.” He adds, quote, “That’s how it started, and then Izzy [Stradlin] started playing the chords behind it and then Axl [Rose] heard it and it started from there.”

David Draiman from Disturbed shaved his head and got his double labret chin piercing when he got a record deal, in order to create an “original” look that nobody else had.

In an interview with Revolver, he said, quote, “It took [my parents] a while before they saw it and my mom cried.  They were not happy.”

But he ditched the piercings in 2018.  In a past interview with a German media outlet, he said they were a pain in the butt and he didn’t want to look like a, quote, “45-year-old Hot Topic kid.”

Adam Driver is going prehistoric. On Wednesday, Sony Pictures Entertainment released the trailer for Driver’s new film, 65, which features the 39-year-old actor as a futuristic space-faring pilot named Mills, whose spaceship suffers a “catastrophic crash on an unknown planet” that turns out to be Earth 65 million years ago, according to an official synopsis for the movie (LINK)

After James Gunn announced that the master plan for new DC has been finalized, Henry Cavill has taken to Instagram to confirm that he will not be returning as Superman in this new era. Gunn took to Twitter later this week to announce that he and DC Studios co-president Peter Safran have finalized a DC slate and will announce more in the new year. But Gunn also shared one movie, which is a young Superman film set in his early days as a reporter. As a result, Cavill would not be returning to the role.

The new dates will see Sandler playing shows across the midwest and down into Texas during the month of February. Stops include Chicago, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Nashville, Austin, Dallas, Houston, and more. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 16th at 12:00 p.m. local time

The streamer has greenlit a series based on the award-winning PlayStation game God of WarThe Wheel of Time’s Rafe Judkins will serve as showrunner on the adaptation, and Oscar nominees Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man, The Expanse) are writing and executive producing with Judkins.

52-year-old heart valve specialist Mike Gabler walked away with the million bucks during last night’s “Survivor 43” finale.  But he won’t have it for long.  Gabler is donating the ENTIRE MILLION . . . or whatever’s left after taxes . . . to the Veterans In Need Foundation.  He said, quote, “There are people that need the money more.  I’m going to donate the entire prize, the entire million dollars, in my father’s name, Robert Gabler, who was a Green Beret. “To veterans in need who [are suffering from] trauma, psychiatric problems, PTSD and to curb the suicide epidemic.  We’re going to save lives, do something good.” Gabler got seven out of a possible eight votes.  Cassidy Clark got the remaining vote, while Owen Knight got shut out and ended up in third place.  (Entertainment Weekly)


Blues take on the Oilers tonight in Edmonton with a local start of 8pm. Calgary is the following day and they don’t come home for a while. They are headed North and West which means late start times for the next few games over the weekend and through Christmas. They are back at home against the Maple Leafs on the 27th.

Congratulations are in order for Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin! The 37-year-old hockey star scored the 800th goal of his career on Tuesday evening, making him just the third player in NHL history to do so, joining hockey greats Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe. Ovechkin’s historic goal came during the third period of a blowout victory against the Chicago Blackhawks, which the Capitals won 7-3 on Chicago’s home rink. Not only was the goal a major milestone, it was also the Russian star’s third goal of the night, giving him a hat trick. Following the game, Ovechkin said his accomplishment is “huge” — both “for hockey” and “for the organization,” ESPN reported. The Capitals star added, “I’m really proud that it’s over. Now, we can move on and focus on the next one.” The next one will also be a huge moment for Ovechkin — goal number 801 will tie Howe’s record and put the Capitals star in a tie for second on the all-time goals list (LINK)

Morocco’s World Cup dream ended, and France’s dream of winning back-to-back titles remains alive. On Wednesday in the semifinal, France scored a goal in each half to advance to Sunday’s final, beating Cinderella Morocco 2-0. France will now face Argentina. Lionel Messi, the Argentina captain, is one win away from winning the World Cup trophy and cementing his legacy as the greatest ever to play the game.  A video went viral of Argentina fans who went to Messi’s grandma’s house and started singing, “Messi’s Grandma.” The World Cup final game is set for Sunday. The match for 3rd place is Saturday between Morocco and Croatia.

An autopsy has revealed that American soccer sportswriter Grant Wahl died of an ascending aortic aneurysm.

  • His wife, Céline Gounder, shared his cause of death during an appearance Wednesday onCBS Mornings.
  • His body and belongings were flown back to New York City on Monday, where an autopsy was performed at the NYC medical examiner’s office.
  • “No amount of CPR or shocks would have saved him. His death was unrelated to COVID. His death was unrelated to vaccination status. There was nothing nefarious about his death,” she said in a statement.
  • Grant Wahl was covering Friday’s Argentina-Netherlands quarterfinal match at the World Cup in Doha, Qatar when he collapsed. Paramedics rushed to perform emergency care, and after about 30 minutes, he was taken to a local hospital.
  • His brother, Eric Wahl, told NPR Grant had received death threats at this World Cup because he wore a rainbow shirt in support of gay rights (same-sex relationships are illegal in Qatar) and also for Grant’s continued critical reporting on FIFA and how the Qataris had been running the tournament.

Aaron Rodgers credits psychedelic drugs for curing his fear of death.

On a podcast tuesdy he said, quote, “Ayahuasca and psilocybin really helped me with [my fear of death] and [alleviated] a lot of the stress around the idea of needing to accomplish things before I actually die . . .

“I think when you’ve seen the other side, it makes the idea of death more of a passage and less of an ending, more of just kinda the next chapter of life.”

Aaron clarified that ayahuasca makes you see “the veil between the seen world and the unseen world” . . . NOT life and death. (here)
