    During an interview on Andy Cohen’s satellite radio show Radio Andy, actress Melissa Gilbert claimed that director Oliver Stone sexually harassed her during an audition for his 1991 film The Doors. At first, Gilbert told her story without naming any names. She kept the accusations very anonymous saying that she was humiliated during an audition because she had “embarrassed him in a social situation.” Gilbert ended up running out of the room crying. “I’m actually sitting here telling you this story, afraid to say his name, because I’m worried about backlash,” she said in the interview. After being reluctant she...

    HOWELL Michigan congressional candidate Melissa Gilbert (D, Howell) is calling upon Rep. Mike Bishop (R, Rochester) to end his Planned Parenthood investigation and “apologize to Michigan taxpayers.” Gilbert said in a press release that Bishop is “wasting … time and money investigating Planned Parenthood based on heavily-edited videos.” A Texas grand jury indicted David R. Deleiden and Sandra S. Merritt for tampering with government records, according to the New York Times. The grand jurors said Planned Parenthood was not guilty of any wrongdoing. According to Gilbert, Bishop has voted six times to defund Planned Parenthood. Gilbert, an actress and former...

Asked about the tax lien, Gilbert, former president of the Screen Actors Guild, told the Detroit Free Press, “The truth is I got caught in a perfect...

    I am glad that Hallmark has started playing these old (values filled shows again): I used to watch this show as a Child. It has given me a new appreciation of Michael Landon Sr. and as a man of God, as many episodes are openly filled with faith in Christ! On another note, I looked up Melissa Gilbert (and remember reading an interview with her and her husband on ET in the 90's): in it she said that though she was liberal, her husband leaned conservative! Well to my surprise she is married to Bruce Boxleitner (I loved this guy...

    Students of history know that over the millennia, great civilizations crumbled not from without, but from within. The Visigoths may have crushed the Romans in 476, but long before the Roman Empire had begun to disintegrate internally, its social fabric slowly shredded apart and ultimately it became a paper tiger unable to sustain itself. In our own lifetime, it’s quite apparent that we are witnessing an increasingly rapid and equally worrisome descent in the moral mean. Here’s one spectacular, depressing example. In the 1970s, one of the most celebrated family shows on TV was "Little House on the Prairie." One...

    LOS ANGELES - California receives millions of dollars in tax revenue when movies are filmed in the state, but about 60 percent of all productions last year were shot elsewhere, according to a study to be released Monday. The state, for example, loses more than $10 million when a $70 million movie is made outside the state, and $3 million for a 12-episode drama, the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. said. Sponsored by labor and industry groups, the 20-page showed that 236 features, or about 40 percent of all productions, were shot partially or exclusively in the state last...

Under his tenure, SAG grew significantly in size and influence as the Guild tackled issues ranging from runaway production, to fair compensation, to...
