‘Happy Days’ castmates pay homage to Garry Marshall, sitcom’s late creator

It was a family affair on Wednesday when the cast of “Happy Days” came together to honor the legacy of the legendary sitcom’s creator, Garry Marshall.

Marshall, who served as executive producer and showrunner of the 1950s comedy series and its various spinoffs, was honored Wednesday alongside cast members including Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Don Most, Anson Williams and Marlon Ross.

The cast attended an annual gala to support Marshall’s 130-seat theater in Burbank, Calif.  Marshall founded the Burbank landmark in 1997 when it was called the Falcon. It was recognized as the Garry Marshall Theater in 2017.

The castmates took a sentimental trip down Memory Lane and chatted about their time with the classic sitcom, recalling time spent on the Paramount lot with Marshall, who died in July 2016.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Howard, 65, opened up about a chance encounter with Marshall that led to an audition for a “Love, American Style” spinoff that Howard said “kept me out of the f—ing jungle” during the Vietnam War.

The same meeting also led to Howard’s break as a director.

“You can’t take these things for granted,” said Howard. “We’re here in Garry’s name and yet I’m experiencing a connecting of the dots of an entire story.”

Winkler recalled coming to Los Angeles from New York, having studied drama at Yale, to audition for the role of the Fonz. “They wanted a tall Italian and they got a short Jew,” Winkler joked. The 74-year-old was nominated for an Emmy three times for “Happy Days” and eventually won two as a co-star opposite Bill Hader in the HBO series “Barry.”

Ross, for her part, quipped that “I’m 90-f—ing-1,” before expressing her appreciation for her fellow co-stars.

“You never saw two guys who filled the top spot so beautifully [than Howard and Winkler],” she said. “I’m proud to be their mother.”

Most was in his junior year at Lehigh University when he auditioned for “Happy Days,” according to the outlet, and the 66-year-old said of his time on the show, “we were so good at what we did because we respected each other and loved each other.”

He added, “We made it look easy and it wasn’t.”

HOW HENRY WINKLER TRANSFORMED PRIVATE BATTLE WITH DYSLEXIA INTO COMEDY

Williams, 70, simply said he was grateful that Marshall often encouraged him to explore other opportunities in show business, which led to work as a director of episodic television.

“Marshall said, ‘You may not be actors all your life, especially you, Anson,” said Williams. “He actually said that. … He gave us an amazing break. He gave us a life.”

5 Things To Know Before Marie Yovanovitch’s Testimony In Impeachment Hearing

Westlake Legal Group 5dcdd1372500007f08d2d269 5 Things To Know Before Marie Yovanovitch’s Testimony In Impeachment Hearing

Yovanovitch’s hearing comes after diplomats Bill Taylor and George Kent publicly testified Wednesday for six hours about Trump’s attempt to freeze U.S. military aid to Ukraine until the country agreed to publicly commit to investigating former Vice President Joe Biden, who is running for president.

Yovanovitch was removed in May as ambassador in Kyiv after Republicans complained that she was undermining efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate Trump’s political rivals. She privately testified Oct. 11 in the impeachment investigation, in which she said the president was politically motivated to pressure the State Department to remove her.

Here are five things to know before watching the House’s public impeachment hearing with Yovanovitch: 

1. Why She Was Removed As Ambassador To Ukraine

Yovanovitch was abruptly removed from her post on May 6 despite being scheduled to end her stint there months later. The removal came after conservative media outlets and Donald Trump Jr. accused her of being part of an alleged Ukrainian attempt to support Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in the 2016 election, which she denied. 

The veteran foreign service officer said her ouster happened after she insisted to Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani that his requests for Ukraine to conduct certain investigations be relayed through the proper foreign policy channels. After Yovanovitch was removed, Giuliani announced that he would be traveling to Ukraine.

At the time of her ouster, Democrats slammed the decision as a “political hit job.” Yovanovitch is still employed by the State Department and currently holds a fellowship at Georgetown University.

Yovanovitch privately testified that Trump pressured the State Department to fire her as a “concerted campaign against me” because she refused to allow Giuliani’s shadow diplomacy.

She said she was “incredulous that the U.S. government chose to remove an Ambassador based, as best as I can tell, on unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives.”

She was replaced by Bill Taylor, the chargé d’affaires to Ukraine, who testified Wednesday about his concerns regarding Trump and Giuliani’s backchannel to the country.

Despite her being a nonpartisan career official, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee will likely attempt to discredit Yovanovitch by bringing up the false rumors that led to her removal: that she was actively anti-Trump. 

2. She Received Threatening Messages, Including From Trump

In Trump’s infamous July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky ― the call that helped fuel the impeachment inquiry ― the U.S. president threatened Yovanovitch by calling her “bad news” and ominously saying she was “going to go through some things.” Zelensky said he didn’t support Yovanovitch because Trump told him she “was a bad ambassador.”

At her private hearing, Yovanovitch testified that she felt shocked and threatened by the president’s comments. She said a senior Ukrainian official warned her that “I really needed to watch my back.” 

The summary of the Ukraine call suggested that Trump was angry at Yovanovitch on the basis of claims made by Ukraine’s former top prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko.

Yovanovitch testified that Ukrainian officials told her at the end of last year that Giuliani was communicating with Lutsenko “and that they had plans, and that they were going to, you know, do things, including to me.” She added that Lutsenko “was looking to hurt me in the U.S.” 

3. Rudy Giuliani’s Campaign To Oust Her Was Largely Fueled By Yuriy Lutsenko

Yovanovitch said that Giuliani went behind her back to try to replace her by meeting with former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko. Lutsenko was Giuliani’s initial point of contact in persuading Ukraine to investigate the Bidens after Yovanovitch refused to help him.

According to The New York Times, Lutsenko had a personal animus toward Yovanovitch while he was Ukraine’s prosecutor general because of her complaints that his office was filled with corrupt employees. She also reportedly told Lutsenko to stop investigating anti-corruption activists who were critical of his work and were supported by the American Embassy. Lutsenko snapped at Yovanovitch, telling her that “no one is going to dictate to me” who should be investigated, according to the Times.

Lutsenko falsely accused Yovanovitch of interfering with the 2016 elections by giving him a “do not prosecute” list and blocking Ukraine from giving evidence of corruption in the election to the U.S. He later admitted that he was the one who requested the list but still communicated the rumors to Trump’s inner circle, eventually resulting in Yovanovitch’s ouster.

Lutsenko was fired in August by Zelensky, and Ukrainian authorities said in October that they’re investigating him for allegedly abusing his power in dealings with politicians. 

4. Giuliani Coordinated Her Removal With Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman

Yovanovitch privately testified that Giuliani’s business associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman coordinated with him in trying to replace her with someone more favorably inclined toward their “business dealings in Ukraine.

Parnas and Fruman, Soviet-born Florida businessmen, allegedly set up the meetings between Giuliani and Lutsenko. They also managed to help build congressional support for removing Yovanovitch, including from Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), who sent a letter urging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to remove the ambassador because of allegations she was anti-Trump.

“I didn’t understand that because nobody at the embassy had ever met those two individuals,” Yovanovitch testified of Parnas and Fruman. “And you know, one of the biggest jobs of an American ambassador of the U.S. Embassy is to promote U.S. business. So of course, if legitimate business comes to us, you know that’s what we do, we promote U.S. business.”

She said Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov warned her that Giuliani had sought a meeting with him but he refused out of discomfort with the attorney’s activities.

Yovanovitch alleged that Parnas and Fruman were looking to export liquid natural gas to Ukraine, which the embassy usually supports. But a Ukrainian official told her in February 2018 that Giuliani and the associates were also attempting a “very dangerous” move by looking into Ukraine’s involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. That led the businessmen to consider her an obstacle in their reported scheme to purge the leadership of Naftogaz, Ukraine’s national oil and gas company.

Parnas and Fruman were recently indicted on charges of making campaign contributions to a Trump-aligned super PAC using straw donors last year.

Parnas said Nov. 4 that he was prepared to cooperate with the House’s subpoena after Trump openly denied knowing him at the time of his arrest. He also alleged Nov. 11 that he himself directly told Ukrainian officials that military aid was contingent on the Biden investigation. 

5. Many Diplomats Were Angry At The State Department’s Lack Of Support For Her

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo oversaw Yovanovitch’s abrupt removal. Many of the diplomats who have testified said that they voiced concern over the fact that the State Department did not come to Yovanovitch’s defense when she was disparaged and eventually removed from her post. Some of those witnesses included Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent, who testified Wednesday, and Pompeo’s former senior adviser Michael McKinley. 

Yovanovitch testified that she went to Pompeo to seek a reaffirming public statement of support after the barrage of negative press and the disparagement that she felt undermined her credibility. The State Department told her there was “caution about any kind of statement, because it could be undermined” by a Trump tweet.

David Hale, the third-ranking official at the State Department, testified to the House that the department believed publicly defending Yovanovitch would have hurt efforts to lift Trump’s freeze on military aid to Ukraine and that senior officials were concerned about Giuliani’s reaction.

Yovanovitch also said Thomas Ulrich Brechbuhl, the State Department’s counselor, was in charge of handling her removal but that he refused to meet with her when she came back to Washington.

McKinley testified to the House that he resigned partly due to the State Department’s lack of support for Yovanovitch and the agency’s increased politicization.

Life sentence for SC school shooter, 17, who killed 1st-grade student

A South Carolina teen was sentenced on Thursday to life behind bars without parole for murdering his father and a 6-year-old boy.

Jesse Osborne was 14 when he shot and killed his father, Jeffrey, in their home on Sept. 28, 2016. According to a confession he gave following his arrest, Osborne shot his father in the head three times.

Investigators said he then drove his father’s pickup truck three miles to Townville Elementary School in Anderson County, where he opened fire on a group of students playing outside.

Jacob Hall, 6, was shot in the leg and died three days later.

Osborne pleaded for leniency before he was sentenced.

“I would just like to say I wished this would have never happened. I don’t exactly know why I did this,” Osborne said. “I just ask you give me hope for the future and get me help because I do need help. I want help.”

Judge Lawton McIntosh, The Associated Press reported, handed down the life sentence in Anderson County immediately following several recommendations he give out the maximum punishment possible.

A U.S. Supreme Court decision bans the death penalty for juveniles.

Osborne, now 17, was being tried as an adult and faced a minimum of 30 years after pleading guilty to two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.

“He killed my second best friend and showed up on my number one BFF’s birthday. I feel very, very, very mad. That is three reasons why he should spend life in prison,” an unnamed child wrote in a letter to the judge.

The defense’s case attempted to show a teen who suffered abuse from his alcoholic father, was bullied at school and isolated himself in what he called a “dungeon” — his basement bedroom where he spent all his time after being expelled from middle school for bringing a hatchet on campus.

Prosecutors said Osborne was obsessed with school shootings. His internet history included searches for “youngest mass murderer” and mass shootings at an Orlando nightclub, Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School and Columbine High School in Colorado.

Marc Thiessen: Deval Patrick joining 2020 race is ‘cry for help from the Democratic establishment’

Westlake Legal Group Deval-Patrick-AP Marc Thiessen: Deval Patrick joining 2020 race is 'cry for help from the Democratic establishment' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc caf8401e-ab4c-581c-bc2f-cd2affafa11a article

Former George W. Bush speechwriter and Washington Post opinion columnist Marc Thiessen called former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick‘s entry into the Democratic presidential field a “cry for help from the Democratic establishment” and added that Patrick’s move should help Elizabeth Warren and hurt Joe Biden.

“It certainly does empower Elizabeth Warren,” Thiessen said on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Thursday. “He’s making a run for the Obama voters, Deval Patrick is. Joe Biden right now has 41 percent of African-American support. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, who might have made a claim to that, have not been able to chip away at that. Deval Patrick may be able to do that.”

DEVAL PATRICK TO LAUNCH DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL BID

Patrick declared his candidacy for the White House earlier Thursday before traveling to neighboring New Hampshire to file for that state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary, beating the deadline for candidates to place their names on the primary ballot by a day.

“What this is, this is a cry for help. This is a cry for help from the Democratic establishment that is looking at this race and seeing Joe Biden is old and fragile and not ready to go up mano a mano with Donald Trump,” Thiessen said, noting that Biden is likely to receive “a pummeling” from the president and his “machine.”

Thiessen said that some in the Democratic establishment are worried that Trump’s re-election next year is possible and are concerned about Warren’s “far-left” platform.

“They see Elizabeth Warren, who’s embracing this far-left agenda that gives no safe harbor to people who are suffering from Trump exhaustion. And so the Democrats see this race slipping away from them,” Thiessen said. “They’re desperate for somebody else to come in, the leadership of the Democratic Party, and they think Deval Patrick can grab that Obama lane, bring the African-American vote in the way Hillary couldn’t.”

Camille Grammer is firing back at her ex-husband, Kelsey Grammer, after the actor claimed the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star asked for a divorce on the day he had to bury his mother.

“This is not true,” Camille stated on Twitter on Thursday.

She continued: “My parents were with us in the Hamptons when we received the news about his moms passing. We consoled him and flew back to LA to make arrangements for her funeral.

“It’s unfortunate that he is rewriting history,” the 51-year-old concluded.

I want a divorce, blah, blah blah — which, we’d had the same conversation for eight years, and it was tiresome.’”

Deval Patrick on his fellow Dems: ‘I love that we are the party of the woke’

Newly-entered 2020 candidate Deval Patrick boasted that the Democrats are the “party of the woke.”

Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday after officially launching his presidential campaign, the former Massachusetts governor was asked about the “vulnerability” of his involvement in Bain Capital, the investment firm that previously dogged Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign.

“You’re not running in a Republican primary, you are running in a Democratic primary,” MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace told Patrick. “Your party has moved to the left.”

“First of all, I love that the party has moved to the left. I love that we are the party of the woke,” Patrick said. “I believe that we also have to be the party of the still waking, and I have always conducted my personal life and my business life and my life as a civil rights lawyer, my life as an advocate, my life as a mediator and as a governor that way. And, why? It’s not because I’m trying to smooth over issues. I am interested in getting at root causes.”

DEVAL PATRICK MAKES LATE ENTRY INTO 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION RACE

Patrick went on to claim that Bain Capital was “demonized” during the 2012 election and defended the firm, saying that “there is a place for private equity in a private economy.” He also acknowledged that capitalism “has a lot to answer for.”

Patrick has resigned from Bain, Fox Business reported earlier Thursday; he had joined Bain in 2015. Obama’s 2012 campaign had accused Romney of outsourcing American jobs while at Bain.

Earlier in the day, Patrick took swipes at the current 2020 frontrunners, including former Vice President Joe Biden. Patrick said he was “a big, big fan of” Biden but noted that his “deep, deep, public empathy doesn’t always come through in this campaign.”

He also criticized the progressive proposal “Medicare-for-all” being promoted by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

“I think that if we want solutions that last, they can’t be solutions that feel to the voting public as if they are just Democratic solutions,” Patrick said.

Scarlett Johansson says she was typecast early in her career: ‘I was very hyper-sexualized’

Westlake Legal Group SCARJO-AP Scarlett Johansson says she was typecast early in her career: 'I was very hyper-sexualized' Nate Day fox-news/topic/marvel fox-news/person/scarlett-johansson fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 242c800e-28b0-55c3-a30c-57500236384e

Scarlett Johansson’s rise to superstardom had a bit of a rocky start.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Johansson, 34, said that she was hypersexualized in her early years.

“I feel when I was working in my early 20s and even in my late teens/early 20s, I felt that I sort of got, somehow, typecast. I was very hyper-sexualized,” she admitted. “Which, I guess, at the time seemed OK to everyone. It was another time.”

SCARLETT JOHANSSON CLARIFIES COMMENTS ABOUT POLITICALLY CORRECT CASTING

Johansson’s film career began in 1994 with “North” and quickly blossomed from there.

One of her most notable roles at the time was in the film “Lost in Translation,” in which, her character catches the eye of Bill Murray’s middle-aged character. She was 18 at the time of the film’s release.

Johansson was also lauded for the 2003 film “Girl with a Pearl Earring” for playing the muse of Colin Firth’s character. The two actors have a 25-year age difference.

Both performances would earn her Golden Globe nominations.

JENNIFER LOPEZ SAYS DIRECTOR WANTED TO SEE HER TOPLESS OFF-SET

“Even though it wasn’t a part of my own narrative, it was kind of crafted for me by probably a bunch of dudes in the industry,” said the Marvel star. “And I guess that worked then, but it was really difficult for me to try to figure out how to get out of being an ingenue or the other woman because it was never anything that I had intended.”

In 2009, Johansson led the Broadway cast of “A View From the Top,” which she said, “totally reset my whole way of thinking about how I could work and the different kind of opportunities that could be available to me.”

She added that she felt she finally “had the opportunity to change the narrative.”

Florida Marine veteran who killed 2 police officers should get death penalty, jury decides

A Marine Corps veteran who fatally shot two Florida police officers should get the death penalty, a jury at the Osceola County Courthouse decided Wednesday.

Everett Glenn Miller, 48, was found guilty of murder in September for the August 2017 killing of Kissimmee officers Sgt. Richard “Sam” Howard, 36, and Officer Matthew Baxter, 26.

A judge will ultimately decide whether to follow the jury’s unanimous recommendation of the death penalty or sentence Miller to life in prison on Dec. 20.

Baxter was conducting a routine check on three people in August 2017 when Miller then drove up and asked why Baxter was “messing with people,” according to the Orlando Sentinel. Baxter called Howard for backup. After an argument, Miller pulled out a firearm and shot both officers in both the head and face, according to prosecutors. He was later arrested at a bar.

Miller’s defense lawyers argued that the Marine veteran was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which led to a mental breakdown in the summer of 2017.

Everett Miller 

INDIANA POLICE DOG SHOT DEAD WHILE CHASING SUSPECT IN WOODS 

Colleagues, friends and family testified that Miller had a successful career, which took a turn for the worse when Miller left a defense contracting job where he targeted enemy combatants with drone strikes. In the months before the killings, Miller lost his job at a packaging company, became homeless and broke up with his girlfriend, according to those close to him. He expressed remorse over killing innocent bystanders.

Witnesses said that leading up to the killings, Miller shocked those who knew him with anti-government and anti-law enforcement social media posts, talked about killing white men and expressed anger at high-profile police brutality cases that involved unarmed African Americans.

One month before the shooting, he was involuntarily committed for running in the streets with a high-powered rifle wearing only boxers. Worried that he might have PTSD because of his increased anger and irritability, Miller went to the Veterans Affairs (VA) medical center several times beginning in May 2017. The last time Miller went to the VA seeking help was four days before the shooting, clinical neuropsychologist Robert Cohen said.

State Attorney Ryan Williams argued that Miller had family members who cared about him and received treatment from the VA, but he missed appointments and refused to take medication.

“It’s worth noting every misstep we saw once Mr. Miller’s service was over was steeped in blame,” Williams said. “It was always someone else’s fault.”

Defense Attorney Roseanne Eckert argued that Miller was a loving father and son with an exceptional military career, but extreme emotional distress caused him to be manic and paranoid.

“There’s no doubt that Glenn Miller was out of his mind that summer,” she said.

Baxter had served with the Kissimmee Police Department for three years at the time of his death. He was survived by his wife Sadia Baxter, who is a detective with the department, and four daughters, who in 2017 ranged in age from 7 months to 7 years old.

Howard was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the police department for 10 years. He left behind a wife and one child.
