DWTS Producers: Bruno Tonioli Shouldn't Apologize to Michael Bolton

Posted: 03:13 PM ET


Michael Bolton won't be getting an apology from Dancing with the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli - not if the show's producers have anything to do with it.

ABC released a statement from the show's producers on Wednesday defending the sharp-tongued Tonioli - who bashed Bolton's dancing on Monday night's show. After Bolton's Tuesday night elimination, the singer demanded an apology.

"Bruno's role as a judge is to give his honest opinions on the quality of the dances he's judging, which is what he did in this case," the producers say.

"While we respect the feelings of our celebrities and dancers, we don't feel Bruno should be expected to apologize for doing his job."

"I was disappointed with Bruno," the ousted Bolton, 57, said Wednesday morning. (The judge said he performed "the worst" jive in 11 years.) "I just didn't expect that level of disrespect from him."

Movie star Tony Curtis dead at 85

Posted: 10:38 AM ET

(CNN) - Screen legend Tony Curtis died Thursday, his family said. He was 85.

"My father leaves behind a legacy of great performances in movies and in his paintings and assemblages," actress Jamie Lee Curtis said in a statement. "He leaves behind children and their families who loved him and respected him and a wife and in-laws who were devoted to him. He also leaves behind fans all over the world. He will be greatly missed."

Curtis starred in more than 140 major motion pictures and was nominated as for an Oscar for his performance in 1958's "The Defiant Ones" with Sidney Poitier, according to his official website.

Curtis also is known for his roles in the 1959 movie "Some Like it Hot" with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon and "Spartacus" in 1960 with Kirk Douglas. He also played the lead role in "The Boston Strangler," released in 1968.

Born in New York City in 1925 as Bernard Schwartz, Curtis grew up poor in the Bronx as his family struggled through the Great Depression. He took the name Tony Curtis in 1949 when he started his film career.

He was married six times, most notably to film star Janet Leigh.

Foundation created in honor Yeardley Love

Posted: 04:50 PM ET

Yeardley Love (R) and her sister Lexie

The family of Yeardley Love has created a new charity in her honor. 

 The One Love Foundation seeks to “encourage and develop in children and young adults four qualities of character that Yeardley exemplified,” according to Love’s mother, Sharon.  

She said those qualities include service, kindness, humility and sportsmanship.  

Love , a University of Virginia lacrosse player, was found beaten to death in her apartment in May.  Her former boyfriend has been charged with first-degree murder.

Love’s aunt, Debbie McChesney, wrote to us at Larry King Live blog about the foundation and about Yeardley and had this to say:

Today, the One Love Foundation: In Honor of Yeardley Reynolds Love announced the launch of its website

The goal of the Foundation is to honor Yeardley by supporting the causes where, if given the chance, she surely would have made a difference.  Many people have written about Yeardley in the past couple of months.  The words we read repeatedly described Yeardley as kindhearted, generous, funny; the nicest, sweetest, happiest girl you ever met. “You are an inspiration and touched so many lives,” is the sentiment shared by so many in their notes and comments.

The same characteristics that inspired these wonderful words also inspired us to develop the One Love Foundation.  Ultimately the goal is to “bring out the Yeardley in everyone”. 

Yeardley’s mom, Sharon, found the following quote from Marcel Proust and felt that it reflected Yeardley’s spirit and the way she will be remembered by all who knew her:

"Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

World’s Largest Ice Cream Social

Posted: 12:15 PM ET

Cold Stone Creamery® and the Make-A-Wish Foundation are inviting the country to help make Kate’s wish come true by participating in the “World’s Largest Ice Cream Social.” Kate, an 11-year-old with a life-threatening congenital spinal-cord condition, wished to be the Cold Stone Tastemaster™ and she’s hoping ice cream lovers around the country will dig into the exclusive ice cream Creation™ that she developed.

“I learned about doing this wish in 2009 when my family and I went to Cold Stone Creamery for the World’s Largest Ice Cream Social for wish kid Jack’s Creation. I loved the idea of working with the Tastemaster™ to put my stamp on an event that helped so many other children. I chose this for my wish because I’ve always loved ice cream and I thought it would be cool to invent my own ice cream flavor.” Kate loves to cook and create in the kitchen and knew she wanted to be the one creating in the kitchen for her wish, not just watching others. The following is Kate’s journal entry describing her wish day.

Make-A-Wish day here I come! Friday morning at 9:45 a.m. the day of my Make-A-Wish day, I quickly leaped out of bed and put on my blue Make-A-Wish t-shirt and blue jeans and popped out the door of our hotel room and into the lobby of our hotel where two camera guys clipped a tiny microphone to my shirt and I jumped into the limo and then we were on our way to Cold Stone Creamery!

A few minutes later we were pointed to a building big enough to fit four football fields into, but then I realized that the building was Cold Stone! I was just minutes away from starting my ice cream adventure.
