Law and Order: Special Victims Unit made Mariska Hargitay a household name in Hollywood, but it also affected her personal life a great deal — it’s where she met her husband, Peter Hermann. The two first met in November 2001, when Peter had a recurring role on the hit series, but their relationship didn’t take off until a few months later when they found themselves talking about religion. After attending church together, Mariska knew she had found the one. «I just about passed out when I saw him there,» she said. «I thought, ‘That’s my husband.'»
Peter popped the question in 2004, and they made things official later that year during a ceremony at the Unitarian Historical Chapel in Santa Barbara, CA. Fast-forward a few years later, and the couple is still going strong with three children, August, Amaya, and Andrew. Judging from their many appearances over the years, it’s clear that these two are still head over heels for each other.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the directors of the stand-alone Han Solo movie (starring Alden Ehrenreich as Young Han and Donald Glover as Young Lando Calrissian), left three and a half weeks before production was scheduled to finish. There were also five weeks of reshoots scheduled. Today, Disney announced that Ron Howard will get into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon and take it from there.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the president of Lucasfilm released a statemen confirming that Ron will replace Lord and Miller.
“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago. With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie.”
THR says that Ron is a safe choice who will fix the messiness left by Lord and Miller. Not long after the news broke that Lord and Miller were out, sources claimed they were actually fired for not getting along with father-son screenwriters Lawrence (who wrote Empire Strikes Back) and Jon Kasdan. Lord and Miller wanted a funner, more improvised shoot, while the Kasdans wanted to stick to the script. Lucasfilm picked a side, and Lord and Miller were dumped. Filming was put on hiatus while they looked for a replacement. Now that Ron has signed on, fillming will resume on July 10.
Ron Howard has worked with George Lucas many times before, and revealed on a podcast back in 2015 that George had approached him to direct The Phantom Menace. So this kind of makes sense. And normally I wouldn’t care that much, but this news pleases me, if only because it means there’s a very very good chance Ron Howard will put his awesomely weird-looking brother Clint Howard somewhere in it. That guy was born to appear in the Star Wars universe.
Those of you who saw Sunday night’s Last Week Tonight segment on the shrinking coal industry will recall that John Oliver received a cease and desist order from Bob Murray, the CEO of a mining outfit, Murray Energy Corporation. Bob Murray had asked Last Week Tonight not to run the parts of the segment about Murray, which of course prompted Oliver to make Bob Murray the centerpiece of the segment, even knowing that Oliver would be sued.
«Bob Murray, I didn’t really plan for so much of this piece to be about you, but you kinda forced my hand on that one,» Oliver said. «And I know you’re probably going to sue me over this. But, you know what? I stand by everything I said.»
As promised, Oliver was hit with a lawsuit for defamation yesterday.
In the segment, Oliver called Murray the geriatric Dr. Evil and claimed that he was on the same side as black lung. He also referred to what is apparently a fake story about Murray being convinced to enter the coal industry by a talking squirrel, which Bob Murray’s company denies. Oliver noted the denial, and then had his own talking squirrel come out and speak to Murray.
The lawsuit claims that HBO, Time Warner, and John Oliver engaged in a «meticulously planned attempt to assassinate the character and reputation» of Bob Murray, and that’s certainly what the segment did, although it did so using facts, something with which Bob Murray — who once falsely claimed a mining disaster was caused by an earthquake — seems unfamiliar.
«Nothing has ever stressed him more than this vicious and untruthful attack,» the complaint says, according to The Washington Post. Murray also claims that the segment contains «biases against the coal industry» and «disdain for the coal-related policies of the Trump Administration.»
That’s actually true, but then again, the Trump Administration’s policies are disdainful. For instance, did you know — as the segment points out — that there are only 78,000 coal mining jobs in America? And that there are 114,000 JCPenneys employees, and JCPennys is facing bankruptcy. Why isn’t Trump doing anything about the latter, especially considering that the coal industry is largely automated now and that even the Kentucky Coal Mining Museum is powered by solar.
I missed the segment the first time around, but there’s nothing like a lawsuit to bring attention back to it, and it is phenomenal. Bob Murray has a legal leg to stand on.

Chris Cornell tragically died by suicide in May, but his memory lives on in the hearts of his family. The Soundgarden frontman left behind his wife, Vicky, and his three children, daughter Toni, son Christopher, and daughter Lillian, and on Father’s Day, they paid tribute to him in a beautiful way. Along with a series of family photos, Lillian, Toni, and Vicky each penned emotional notes for Chris on his Facebook page. Toni wrote about some of her favorite memories with her dad, adding, «Whenever I was sick you would take care of me. You would cuddle with me, hug me, kiss me. You didn’t care about getting sick. You would stay up all night to make sure my fever went down. And if it didn’t, you would wake me up and give me my medicine. I would open my eyes, see you, and feel better.»
Lillian wrote about the time they «were biking around Central Park and you told me that there aren’t many truly good people in the world, but that I was one of the few,» while Vicky talked about what a wonderful dad he was. «Perhaps if you had not been the most amazing daddy always giving all your attention and love it would not be so excruciatingly hard. You gave with all your heart and it makes the void so much more painful.» Read their letters in full below.
Here I was thinking that Pimp Mama Kris was the komedian of the koven (see: PMK saying that everyone can relate to at least one member of her stable of fame whores), but Caitlyn Jenner proved that she’s got fresher and edgier jokes!
The sweetheart of the Republican party (in her head, probably) was a speaker at the College Republican National Committee gala on Friday night, and for some reason, the moderator asked her to fart out her thoughts on the GOP congressional baseball shooting that left Rep. Steve Scalise and lobbyist Matt Mika in critical condition and put several others in the hospital. As everyone knows, the anti-Trump shooter was the lone fatality of the attack. HuffPo says that Caitlyn started off serious and she ended by letting everyone know that she’s got jokes! Caitlyn joked that the shooter was a really bad shot, since you know, he didn’t kill anyone… unlike one trick we know (see: picture above)…
“Nobody deserves what happened out there. There’s no justification. There are crazy people. We have to minimize that type of stuff. As far as the people that were injured, it’s an absolute shame. You just want them to recover. Fortunately the guy was a really bad shot. Liberals can’t even shoot straight.”
If you watch the video below, you can hear the crowd eating up Caitlyn’s joke. But elsewhere, Caitlyn’s hot take went down as well as the Kartrashians’ live-in plastic surgeon telling the koven that this week’s ass injections have been postponed since the shipment of non-FDA-approved toxic butt filler got stuck in customs.
Caitlyn also praised, Officer Crystal Griner, the lesbian Capital Police Officer who got injured while trying to take down the shooter, for doing her job and not thinking about LGBT issues and those type of things (?????) at the time.
“She did her job. She wasn’t thinking about LGBT issues, she wasn’t thinking about any of those types of things. She did her job and she did it well,”
I bet that as the crowd left the College Republican National Committee gala, they continued to laugh and said, “Oh, Whatshername, you so funny!”, as they walked to their car, got in, put on a helmet and waited. And when Caitlyn strolled out and slid into the backseat of a chauffeured car, they breathed out a sigh of relief, took off their helmet and safely drove home.
Prince William became a big brother in September 1982 when his brother Harry was born, and from the start, the two have been nearly inseparable. Thanks to the modern royal parenting of their late mother, Princess Diana, the boys were afforded a lifestyle that was far more normal than was customary at the time — they were often photographed on beach vacations, at theme parks, and even at McDonald’s with their adoring mom. After her death in 1997, the brothers’ bond became even tighter. «We have been brought closer as a result of the circumstances,» Harry has said. «You are uniquely bonded because of what we’ve been through.»
Harry was right by his brother’s side when he married Kate Middleton in 2011, and much like Kate and her sister Pippa, the young royals have remained incredibly close even after the big day — Harry doesn’t even mind third-wheeling it with the couple on official appearances and charity visits. But even before Kate came along, these guys were two peas in a royal pod — and we know William will return his best man duties should Harry walk down the aisle with his love, Meghan Markle. Take a look back at all of Harry and William’s cutest brotherly moments.
