Moore considers departure
Kenya Moore says she’s seriously considering leaving “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” after her televised brawl with co-star Porsha Williams.
“We all agree that we don’t condone violence,” Moore said in an interview on Monday. “We’ve become angry with each other, we’ve threatened each other and gone to the edge. But at the end of the day, we know there’s a line. If there are no consequences, then where does it end?”
Williams surrendered last week to authorities and was charged with a misdemeanor charge of battery for the fight, which was televised as part of the Bravo show’s reunion special on Sunday.
Williams and Moore have had friction during the entire season, so it wasn’t surprising that the two began to argue and trade ugly accusations during the reunion special. But then things got physical. Both women stood up and Williams grabbed Moore’s hair, pulling her down and dragging her across the floor. On the show, Williams said she “blacked out” but was regretful about the fight.
Lohan makes sad disclosure
Lindsay Lohan says she suffered a miscarriage during the taping of her reality TV series.
The 27-year-old actress made the disclosure during Sunday’s final episode of “Lindsay,” the OWN cable channel series.
Lohan said the miscarriage was the reason that she was unable to appear on the program at one point. She said she was sick and unable to move.
She didn’t offer any further details on the program about her ill-fated pregnancy.
Lohan began taping the OWN reality show shortly after leaving her sixth stint in rehab last summer.
Oscars producers to return
The producers behind the last two Oscar telecasts are coming back for a third time.
The film academy announced Monday that Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return to produce the 87th annual Academy Awards. The two were responsible for the 2013 show hosted by Seth MacFarlane and this year’s telecast starring Ellen DeGeneres.
Film academy chief Dawn Hudson said Zadan and Meron “are masters at tapping into the zeitgeist.” This year’s show set social media records when DeGeneres’ star-studded selfie became the most re-tweeted image ever.
The 87th Oscars will be held Feb. 22, 2015.
Baldwin to aid library
A struggling public library in Rhode Island is getting help from actor Alec Baldwin – again.
Officials at the Adams Memorial Library in Central Falls say Baldwin will headline a fundraiser June 7 at Fete in Providence.
In 2011, Central Falls became the first city in Rhode Island to declare municipal bankruptcy and the library closed for a month as a result. The city emerged from bankruptcy in 2012.
Baldwin read about the city’s woes and donated $10,000 to the library in 2011 and another $5,000 in 2012. He also gave $2,500 to two local school chess teams last year.
